The Southern Express has again favored us with the latest New York papers. "A stupendous anachronism" is what the St. Louis Republican says Jeff Davis is. Yesterday was about the warmest day of the season. The atmosphere is getting heated. Of the 423,815 citizens of Connecticut born in this country, 29,574 are natives of the State of New York. The intellect that bases all aspiration and effort on the hope of winning some one ex clusive love, leaves the shrine of infinite nature, and bows to that of the inferior and finite. The Madison school (Miss Kasson, prin cipal), has again opened its doors to the pupils who were prevented by the late over flow from visiting that favorite institution of learning. A little newspaper, entitled La Donna, is published at Venice every Sunday, edited 4>y ft lady, Signora Gualberta Alaide Bec eari, and among itil contributors are several well known ladies. A couple out in Portland, Oregon, wliV found themselves divorced lately through the machinations of the wife's mother, did the best thing possible under the circum etauces—promptly got married again. Colonel William Vigere, clerk of the House of Representatives, sends us, with his compliments, a copy of the debates in the House of Representatives of the State of Louisiana during the session of 1871, ''January," a New York gambler, being broke one night, put a lozenge on the queen, and the dealer, mistaking it for a split cheek, paid the bet. From this beginning he took $1500 out of the bank that night. It is stated that this year foreign tobacco has been sold and smoked in Havana, and also that Florida tobacco has been imported there, manufactured into cigars, and then sent abroad again as legitimate Vuelta Abiyo. The Emperor William remarked to the Mayor Hedeman, who attempted to kiss the royal right hand at the opening of the German Parliament: *• This is not a Ger man State custom, and it is only fit for the ladies." The water in the rear portion of the city is receding rapidly, and it is expected that by to-morrow evening the bell boat Osage will be dismissed and the services of the lire engines and various pumps will be dis pensed with. The thermometer yesterday morning at seven o'clock was 78° at New Orleans, 74° at*Augusta, *83° at Charleston, 78° at Sa vannah, 65° at Cincinnati, 78° at Louisville, 81° at St. Louis, 68-" at Nashville, 82° at Key West, and 84° at Havana. A little Kansas girl who built a fire in her father's barn, and found it getting beyond her control, hastened to hide what she had done by covering it with hoards. The mo tive was pardonable, perhaps, but the re sult was not satisfactorv. The Petersburg Index refuses to denounce Jefferson Davis personally, but emphatic ally sayB of his speeches: ''The South "dis owns all such mischievous counsels; it will not adopt Mr. Davis as its political monitor in the present political situation." The expenses of collecting the internal revenue have been decreased $300,000 since January 1. At that date there were 1887 assistant assessors. Since then 316 have been discharged, and there will be a further reduction of 150 before the year closes. Specimens of valuable coal, discovered at Dearborn river, Montana, on the line of the Northern Pacific railroad, have been re ceived at Washington; also specimens which are the nearest approach to anthracite of any yet found west of Pennsylvania. The New Y'ork Day Book calls the Val landigham platform "the great crab move ment of the Democratic party," and says that it is an attempt "to crawl backward out of sight of every principle always held sacred by the party." The Day Book repre. gents the red hot Democracy. Dragging the Chicago river to find out what ailed it to make it smell so sour, bas revealed the fact that some one anchors dead dogs in the river by weights. They found twenty valuable dogs in one place. Weight till they find the man who leaves his dogs lying around that way. The persons connected with furnishing the new gauging instruments, under direc tions from the Internal Revenue Bureau, are supposed to he the same who, during the most of Commissioner Delano's term, wex - e vainly trying to induce him to order the exclusive use of several of their patent devices. The Nixon Hotel, at Biloxi, is well known to the greatest number of those who have visited that watering place. This estab lishment, which is in the most eligible por tion of the town, has been completely re paired and newly furnished, and is now under the efficient management of Mrs. M. Skinner, of whom it may well be said that she knows how to keep a hotel. The town of Biloxi is one of the most salubrious of the many watering places to which the people of New Orleans resort, and it has the immense advantage of being entirely free from mosquitos. WHY OUR TRADE DEPARTS. Sheveport is trading with St. Louis to a considerable extent, and this irritates the Times , of New Orleans, into the ex pression of some mercantile ideas that are not sound. It would be a comfortable conclusion if we could agree with our con temporary, because it is to our interest to cultivate and claim every dollar of trade that belongs to New Orleans; but sound sense informs us that there is a certain line of goods consumed in Shreveport which she ought to buy in St. Louis, and ■we are not prepared to demand of her that this trade must come to our market. The Western produce that goes to North ern Louisiana ought to go direct. The cotton that the West consumes ought to proceed direct from the landing on Red river, or wherever else it is bought, by the most direct route to its ultimate des tination. This is the law of sound trade, and it is one which we respect out of re gard for the interests of our neighbors. This brings us to another branch of the subject which is worthy of attention. As Shreveport is under every obligation to buy from first.hands, so is New Or leans. Do we attend to our own interest in this matter ? Have we not attempted to live by coercing trade rather than by deserving it? Has not New Orleans made the mistake of attempting to thrive upon a system after the system was dead ? As for instance, before the war she main tained a large inland trade by selling on time to the planters, taking the chances of being paid out of the crops ? And did not this system originate and uphold our trade in corn, salt meats, liquors, shoes, and plantation goods generally ? As the planters are exploded, has not the system exploded, and have not our commission merchants refused to hear the explosion ? That is they have contented themselves with following a beaten path in selling at second hand, when the changed condi tion of their customers made it incumbent on them to originate the practice of being the first instead of the second vendors. That is, still further, they should have looked about them to discover what goods their customers wanted from foreign ports, and they should have made it a specialty to offer this manner of merchandise in New Orleans in the original package direct from the' manufacturer, at prices lower or as low as the same goods are of fered in other markets. Since the for tunes of war had swept away the trade which was ours by compulsion, it was our duty as capable merchants to retrieve our fortunes by engaging in that legitimate business which belonged to us by the law's of trade. Let us illustrate by taking the articles of foreign goods that are consumed in large quantities in the West and South. We ship cotton, staves and tobacco to Havre and Antwerp. These ports ship wines, silks, woolen goods, cutlery, etc., to the United States. By this interchange freights should have been quite as cheap between these foreign ports and New Or leans as they are between New York and Europe. Our rents are as moderate as they are in Boston or New York. We sell to the West and South their annual supplies of sugar, molasses and rice be cause these articles are of our own pio duction. Since the West and South are forced to come to us for their nec essaries, why have w'e not made it profit able for them to purchase their European outfit in our market ? Is the answer de manded ? Because we have contented ourselves with buying our supplies in New York at second hand, and the Texas merchant refuses to pay us a commission on our purchases when he can go to New York and save the gains which w'ere de manded in New Orleans. Is this plain ? It is the same principle that Shreveport adopts when she departs out of our midst and saves commissions by buying her gro ceries in the West from first hands. The truth is, New Orleans has sought to live on a kind of conscript trade, and as this has failed her by the desertion of the conscripts, she is grumbling when she ought to be inventing new resources. The Western grocery business does not belong to her except in the matter of exporting this kind of merchandise to the ports on the gulf and in the Carribean Sea. Un fortunately, she has lost the latter while attempting to control the former. But the foreign trade does belong to her, not alone by virtue of her position as the nearest and most accessible way home, but by virtue of the more imposing fact that she is the only port in the world that offers an exchange of freights, receiving the cotton and sending forward the ne cessary stores. She does this with the in terior and the exterior. The river steamer ought to come with cotton and go back with goods, and the foreign ship should come with goods and go back with cot ton. In place of this our own merchants buy their merchandise in New Y'ork and they sell much of their cotton in the same port. With such a perversion of the laws of trade is it singular that Shreveport is giving us the go-by ? of New Orleans, he loves litigation, and A COSTLY LUXURY. Mayor Flanders evidently enjoys a law suit. Next to the luxury of being Mayor as be is now in a position where he can reTal in his favorite amusement at the public expense, he shows a disposition to improve occasion. The leading fea tures of hisgdmimstration are suits at law. He wants everything interpreted by the courts. He is \ot satisfied with the in ferior tribunals. Nothing short of the mandates of supreme^ courts will satisfy his inordinate passion* and he acts at times as though he does 'hot accept in its fullest extent the arbitrament of these august tribunals. Possibly the fact that he loses nearly all his cases adfls to his appetite for litigation, in the same -man ner that a bad run of luck at gambling makes the victim hope to win next timA v After having bought a number of lottery tickets, all pf which drew blanks, a man usually thinks the next effort will se cure a prize. Mr. Flanders has carried this idiosyn crasy to such an extent that the law charges, costs of court, lawyers' fees, etc., growing out of his propensity to make legal war, swell up to a prodigious sum. About $30,000 a year is the figure paid the City Attorney and his several assistants, while it now appears that he has retained Spe cial counsel to fight Mrs. Gaines. We see by the official proceedings that Mr. Flanders has asked permission to order Mr. Lacey to move for a dissolution of an injunction obtained against the city relative to the printing. He does not ask the City Attorney for his opinion as to the merits of the case. He has an opinion of his own upon that point, and thereby to some extent constitutes himself City At torney. But he will require Mr. Lacey to do the necessary clerical work. .Unfortunately for him, however, the Council had more important matters to consider, and refused to clothe him with power to spend another thousand or two in pursuit of his favorite hobby. If Flanders could run the city by legal machinery he might be a success as a mayor. But failing in that, he fails in everything. If he could have found a tribunal with jurisdiction over the south east wind he would no doubt have got out an injunction and prevented the present disastrous overflow. But as there was no such court before which he could send his $30,000 worth of legal talent, he did nothing, and the people of the submerged district are nearly ruined. It appears that he has called Mr. Lacey's attention to a "section in the city charter authorizing the city to select a printer." YVe hope the eloquent City At torney will succeed in finding this section, for we can not There is no such section in the charter, and Mayor Flanders knows it as well as any one. Also, "to a clause in the printing law which authorizes the City Council to advertise in ether journals than the official journal." We have made no complaints about the advertisements. The City Council has a legal right to pub lish important matters in other journals, bat the disposition to do so to an extrava gant and unnecessary extent is often very apparent. What we object to is the prac tice of sending orders for book and job printing to little establishments all over town, many of which either do the work in an inferior manner, or send it to our office, pay our fair prices and then bill it to the city at an advance. The law gives us all the job and book printing for which the city of New Orleans may be charge able, and we shall insist upon our rights, even if we dt) thereby give Mayor Flan ders an opportunity to indulge in his favorite amusement at the expense of the taxpayers of the city. A public officer is in a position to act fairly. He ought to have no pecuniary interest one way or the other in claims presented to the State or city for payment. If he resists a just claim he commits an act of injustice and an offense. And every judgment rendered against New Orleans is, to a certain extent, a reproach to the officer who refused to make a just settle ment. The people of this city do not wish to defraud anybody, and when their Mayor attempts to do so, and is only restrained by the courts of justice, he grossly misrepresents them. When little claims against the city of a hundred or two dollars have to be collected on a judg ment, with costs of court, it shows that either want of fairness or incompetency, or both, exist at the City Hall. A DOUBLE GAME. Some persons are uncharitable enough to accuse Horace Greeley of playing a double game since his return to New Y'ork. His recent speech to the Republicans of that city, in which he is reported to have pitched into the "Ku-Klux," and "carpet baggers " of the South with equal ferocity, is thought to be an effort to carry water on both shoulders. It must be admitted that Horace has given the shadow of a cause for suspicion if he has attempted to modify his denun ciations of the rascally and murderous Ku-Klux by reiterating and indorsing all that has been said by the rotten Democ racy of the carpet-baggers and carpet-bag governments. No man understands Demo cratic vituperation better than the aged and experienced manager of the New York Tribune. He must know that it is necessary to receive with many grains of allowance what is said by Democrats of the governments that have been estab lished under the reconstruction laws. The Democrats have been as lavish of their abuse of the general government in the matter of reconstruction, as they have of •what they are pleased, in their bitterness, to term carpet-bag governments. The lowest epithets and vilest charges that could be imagined have been heaped upon the President and Congress for car rying out the expressed will of the peo ple; and it would be impossible to con vince the people that the Democrats are right in denouncing carpet-bag govern ments, and wrong in denouncing the ac tion of the general government. It is more than probable that errors have been committed by the ruling party in matters of State and national affairs; that indi vidual wrong to a considerable extent may have been perpetrated. This is the common lot of all administrations; the imperfection that is usually displayed in a more or less degree by men who have been intrusted with official position. But to admit all as truth that is said of the Republican party in the South, by the Democratic party, is to brand not only the carpet-bag governments with whole sale dishonesty, corruption and incom petency; it establishes with equal justice the infamous charge made against the administration and the Republican party, by the Democratic party, that they have established " a foul conspiracy by which a government of written law is to be superceded by the unwritten and im perious will of a single man—and that will inspired by an in famous oligarchy of knaves and thieves behind the throne." Mr. Greeley •has just as much right to believe these charges against President Grant's admin istration as he has to believe the wholesale charges that are made against the State governments in the South and the Re publican party. And when he attempts to mollify—if indeed he does—the feelings of any portion of the Democratic party for his honest denunciation of the mur derous Ku-Klux, by apparently chiming in with them in their slanders of carpet bag governments, he gives cause for a suspicion that for once in his life he is playing a double game. We can not believe that Mr. Greeley has been guilty of conduct so at variance with his past history, so different from the straightforward, manly course that has caused him to be admired and his opinions respected by the honest men of all parties. Can it be possible that an overweening desire to became President of this great nation could have anything to do with such conduct, if true ? A thousand tongues already proclaim this to be Mr. Greeley's reason for accepting the Demo cratic charges against carpet-bag govern ments as true, and denouncing carpet baggers as equally guilty with the in famous Ku-Klux and equally deserving of extirpation. His manner of treating Mr. Livermore's letter, dated Leavenworth, Kansas, April 29, 1871, asking to have his views in rela tion to having his name brought before the next National Re; ubliean Convention for nomination for President, has led many to believe that he actually aspires to that exalted position. He did not come out in the emphatic manner of General Sherman, and say that he never has and never will be a candidate for President, and if unani mously elected he would decline to serve. It is true Mr. Greeley did say, in response to the Kansas letter, that he^rusLed hence forth never to be an aspirant for any poli tical office; bnt he was very careful to further say, in this connection, that his purpose was as irrevocably fixed never to decline any office that his political friends might see fit to devolve upon him. This, in connection with the further fact that Mr. Greeley said it seemed to him advisa ble that the next candidate of the Repub lican party for President should be a stead fast, constant believer in the good old Whig doctrine of one presidential term, has convinced many that he is aspiring to be President; and in this way they ac count for what they do not hesitate to call his double dealing. A GENEROUS OFFER. As we chasten those we love, Shreve port ought to consider that our affection for her is of the most devoted order. She had certain evil practices, or rather the rowdy element in her midst needed to be brought face to face with their misdeeds, and we took the liberty of leading them up to that mirror which enabled them to see themselves as others saw them. It had a wonderfully goed effect, for the in cisivenes of our castigation not only shamed the lawless, but it taught the law abiding their duty in the premises. We are satisfied that the consequences have been most notable and worthy of all good report. In the next place, we have espoused her interest in all cases in the construction of rail roads, urging the construction of these commercial arteries in every direction, whether they tended to the direct benefit of New Orleans, Memphis, St. Louis or any other city. Our design has at all times been to favor Shreveport as a large and pros perous commercial centre, satisfied that her general prosperity would inure to our advantage. In doing this, if we have said harsh things, it was not against the city nor against the worthy people thereof that we directed our efforts, but against the very elements that obstructed her onward march, by making her the object of scan dalous reports. We are interested in the welfare of every community in Louisiana in the same way, and if we can lash evil out of their limits, our services are at their request. If Mr. Flanders is remarkable for any thing it is for being a litigous Mayor. He is the friend of the lawyer. He will fight it out on that line as long as there is a dollar in the city treasury to pay a lawyer with. This is good for the lawyers, but none else. It is ruinous, inasmuch as it is helping to eat out the substance of our city and keeping a lady out of her just dues. If Mayor Flanders' course was likely to save the city anything there might be some excuse for prolonging jus tice to one whose claims the highest courts in the land have pronounced to be just. But he can not hope to save the city anything by employing counsel at a heavy expense to further prosecute a mat ter that has already been determined by the Supreme Court of the United States. According to the statement of the very learned counsel employed by Mayor Flan ders to further prevent Mrs. Gaines from obtaining what the courts have decided to be her own, it does seem as if the em ployment of extra counsel in this matter was not only a wanton waste of the pub lic funds, but a most unjust and unwar rantable attempt to thwart the decisions of courts of justice. In their letter to the Mayor, the learned counsel say, in refer ence to the judgment just rendered by Judge Bradley in the United States Cir cuit Court. In our opinion this judgment is illegal and unjust in every sense, and would be set aside on appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States. We will make application to Judge Brad ley in the morning to fix the amount of bond to be given. In the meantime advise ns of your determination, as no time is to be lost. In the opinion of the very learned coun sel-one of whom, we are informed, is interested in some of the property that has been decreed by the courts to belong. to Mrs. Gaines—the judgments of the courts are illegal and unjust in every sense, and upon their disinterested show ing Mayor Flanders suggests that an ap peal be taken, and he be authorized to procure the necessary security on the appeal bond. If he had been as diligent in matters that properly belonged to him as he has in thwarting the judgments of courts, he might have saved thousands of dollars to the city. But he is not dili gent where he should be. We learn that Administrator Delassize, on the part of the Relief Committee ap pointed by the city authorities, has estab lished two free markets for the benefit of sufferers by the overflow; one of which markets is located on the Gentilly road, and the other at the lake end. At the latter point Mr. F. Brunette has kindly placed his house at the disposal of the committee. Both these markets have been placed under the supervision of L. Pessou, Esq., who has throughout the trying period of the inundation made great exertions for the relief of the suffer ers in the overflowed districts. Antelope is giving in advice to put in more cotton, as the price of that staple promises not only to hold its present ad vance, hut to advance before the next crop is disposed of. This is another of An telope's hobbies. He is always predicting a rise in cotton and a fall in currency, but as the farmers have never profited by the one nor the brokers by the other, it is not probable that this agricultural suggestion will meet with any material attention.
