"FHCMUOURNAL OF THE UNITED STATES O FFICIAL JOURNAL OF NEW ORLEANS CITY COUNCIL—OFFICIAL BEOl'LAR MEETTNG-t ONTIMtD. City Hall, Nbw Ori.fans, i July 19, 1871. 5 The recess having expired, the Council reassembled at 11 A. M. Mayor lienj. F. Flanders presided, and there were present Administrators Cockrem, Delassizc Reiniek, Lewis, Walton and Bon" zano. Mr. Remick said as Mr. Shaw was absent, and the business betore the meeting required a full Council, he moved that a further re cess he taken until to-morrow at noon. The Council took a recess accordingly. H. CONQUEST CLARKE, Secretary. the courts. Seven lli District C ourt. An important suit has beeu instituted in this court bv William S. Sullivau against George E. Wilkinson and F. A. Behan, owners of the Coast and Lafourche Packet Company, charterers of the steamer Right Way. Plaintiff complains that defendants are indebted to him in solido in the sum of $10,000, as damages, for this, that on the eighteenth of July, 1870, the said steamboat being so owned and chartered, exploded her boilers, or one of her boilers, whereby the petitioner who was the tirst mate, em ployed on said boat by the charter party, was seriously and dangerously injured. It is alleged that said accident occurred at Jamison's plantation, near the town ot Thibodaux, on tbe Bayou Lafourche, and that the same and its inj irious conse quences to petitioner an* directly traceable to the carelessness an l neglig* nco of the defendants and their employes m not hav ing the proper repairs made to the boilers, as well us to the neglect and want ot atten tion to the boiler on the part of the engineer employed on said boat. Thomas Ford has also instituted a suit in said court against same defendants, claim ing $10,001) damages for injuries received liv the explosion of the boilers of the Right Way at the time mentioned above. F. C. Zaeharie is counsel for plaintiffs in both cases. We also find on file in the Seventh Com t thojietitien of Alexis Alexander and Wil liam B. Knolltz. against the Louisiana Pe troleum and Coal Oil Company, in which The petitioiiei s set out that they are judg ment creditors of said company for the sum of $0000; that said company has wholly abandoned its organization, and failed to comply with the requirements of its char ter. atid has attempted to make way with and dispose of its movable prop, rty. and conceals Iroiu the pursuit ot its ciecfitors the assets of the company arising from the sale of its capital stock. For these and other reasons assigned, the petitioners pray the appointment of a receiver. Gustave Laroque Turgeau was appointed receiver. Cotton Crop Prospects. The July returns do not materially change the cotton crop prospects reported in June. Severe rain storms have continued to ob struct cultivation and check growth in the States upon the gulf coast. The States of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida average lower in condition than at tl.e date of the last report. The Georgia and Texas averages remain unchanged, and an im provement is indicated in the Carolinas. Tennessee and Arkansas. The percentage ■of each State, as compared with the July statement of last year, is as follows: North Carolina....... July, 1871). Per cent. .......... 94 July, 1871 Per cent. 99 South Carolina........ 100 Georgia............... .......... I'll 32 Florida................ .......... 98 83 Alabama.............. .. 102 81 Mississippi............ ......... 95 3« Louisiana............. .......... 101 75 T**xa9.................. .......... 97 93 Arkansas.............. ......... 101 90 96 While no estimates can at this early date he made, this information leads to the fol lowing conclusions: With a reduction of fourteen per cent iu|;icreage, tbe continu ance of the present relatively low condition and a season as long as that of 1870, there should be gathered a crop of 3,'j00,000 hales, or about as large as that of 1869; with a season of average length, 2,900,000 bales: with an early frost and very unfavorable seftson for picking. 2,700,000 bales. The prevalence of insects, with other unpro pitious circumstances, would probably re duce the crop to 2.500.000 bales, and a steady improvement of the plant for sixty days, with the longest and most favorable pick ing season, might carry the aggregate up to 3,500,000. This is presented as a fair state ment of the range of probabilities, based upon the most extensive and reliable data, and uninfluenced by the clamors of the .speculators of the Cotton Exchange. Deatli of James A. Oates. When Mrs. James A. Oates was at the Academy of Music last season, her husband was in very feeble health, and therefore the announcement of his death does not create surprise. The New York World, of Satur day, says: Mr. James A. Oates, well known in dra matic circles in this country as manager of the Oates English Comic Opera Troupe, •died at the Grand Central Hotel yesterday. He was quit* young, having been born hi Cork, IrelamL some twenty-nine years ago. Although his theatrical career was short, it was brilliant, and gave promise of much success iu the future. He first appeared as an actor at Norfolk, Virginia, iu 1860. He very soon ranked as a leading actor in the \V estern cities, and became quite popular as a light comedian. He played iu Wood's Theatre, Cincinnati, in the Louisville The atre. and the Nashville Theatre. As Bodyer in the "Streets of New York," he rapidly attained much popularity. In 1869 lie or ganized the English Comic Opera Troupe, and became quite a successful manager. •One of the tirst efforts of this troupe wasfto bring out at the Olympic Theatre last sum mer a burlesque of Herbe's, "Le Petit Faust." Mr. Oates in social life was quite as popular as he was on the stage, and his friends iu Cincinnati erected for him a few years ago a theatre which was known in that city as the Fourth Street Theatre. The Herald says Mr. Oates married six years ago in Louisville, and that he has been an invalid for years, suffering from a severe affection of the throat. The Times says the cause of his death was consumption. The Franklin Sun report a sad accident: *C. C. Halkirk, and two sisters he was taking home from school iu a buggy, were drowned last week at Jourden's ferry, iu Bo ut river- He had paid no attention to the fastenings of the flat, and ran his buggy on it, when it floated oft' with only the fore wheels on. The girls jumped into the river, and he followed to save them, and struggled hard to do so, hut unsuccessfully, and lost his life in the effort. A man in a house on the opposite side of the river swam over to his aid. but he was sinking the last time e're he reached him. \\ hen taken out. the three were all together, each ot the sisters holding him by a wrist. Mr. Hallaek was a very exemplary young man, and had iust been married. lie belonged to Rich land parish.__ The Postmaster General has, in accord ance with the telegraph act of 1866, fixed tbe rates of telegraph communication be tween the several departments of the gov ernment and their officers and agents, which have priority over ai! other business. These new rates are exclusively confined to public Jiusiucss. One cent per^word is named for ■ each circuit of two hundred and fifty miles or less. All the woids of the communica tion transmitted are to be counted excepting .the date and place at which such conimuni .cation is filed. The rate for signal service messages and reports is two cents per word for each circuit or distance irrespective of the length of the sarntv The rates took effect July 1. INSURANCE.
