Humiaton, the elderly person who wounded Officer Argus at the lake end, on the twenty-first of May. goes down to the Criminal Court to answer, also to explain about carrying a concealed weapon on the twenty-third in stant. _ Sword and Shovel.— Henry Taylor's passion, getting the upper hand of his dis cretion, went for Burnell Steele's only wife with a sword and a shovel, near the Half wav House. Metairie ridge. Not only that, hut he actually threatened to give Coroner Creagh a job by squelching the breath of the husband's uninsured life. This malicious conduct nerved Steele into a serious fever, and he fears that unless Taylor is sewed up in a bag of law, he will undoubtedly con summate his direful threat. Taylor was required to furnish a bond worth one hun dred dollars to appear before the august First Recorder on the first of August, when the sword and the shovel will be produced as dangerous weapons. Child Drowned,— A six year old son of Mr. F. G. McCarthy, of Gretna, was missed from his home Wednesday, and it was feared he had been abducted, but it turns out worse than that—the little fellow was drowned in the river. Coroner Taylor held an inquest on the body at the head of Har vey's canal. _ _ For months past it seems that the tribe formerly known as wharf rats has almost entirely disappeared from the levee. Since Captains McCann and Flanagan handled the harbor nolice there has been a great reformation, so that merchants, and especially steainboatmen, leel a security thev did not experience previous to the ad vent of the officers named. It is seldom that we hear of robberies on the levee, and we believe it is due to the efficiency of the Trinity- School.— We adopt the follow up from the Picayune of last evening: To the several splendid edifices used for schoolhouses in our city a new one has been added. Attached to the Trinity church, on St. Ferdinand street, has always been a very numerous school. The accommoda tions for the pupils proved, however, lnsul ieient, and in order to supply such deh ieuev. iu place of the several smal frame houses in which the several school rooms were located, a substantial building spa cious. well ventilated and in every particu lar adapted to its purpose—has been erected. It occupies a large lot on the corner ot St. Ferdinand and B Casacalvo streets, which had been acquired at the cost of ten th >u sand dollars. The building is two stones S and faces Casacalvo street. . Iuinie diatelv over the basement, which is eighteen feet high T and can be used for a playground, are located four school rooms each having a length of thirty-seven feet and a width ot twenty sevbn feet. Four rooms ot the same si^roccupv the second floor. By throwing open tbe P large folding, doors they can be converted into a spacious toll, to be used for exhibitions and social gatherings. The building was inaugurated ft« week was distinguished^*^ a series of exhibitions !i'™ v the pupils. The numerous visitors were well delighted with the d,s ,rlav of talent as exhibited by the boys ant I ris of Trinity school. It spoke well for the exertions- made .by their motors Messrs. Charles Weis and F. 8. Sierers. a their able assistants, the Heneaicnne sixers Rev. Father Leonard Thevis. who i n charge of Trinity church, has the general supervision of the j excellence of this institution is greatly due to hia administration. . , •» The Trinity school, sustained hv generositjMjf the German Catholics .rf the Third District, and efficiently eupported by such substantial citizens as _ tto BrojU< ^ SprUndother liberal-minded residemsol' the lower portion of the city, is one oUhe most dourishing institutions ot which New Orleans can boast. Vie watt the school that success which it so richly deserves. __ Those Shoes.— Captain McCann lias ar rested Louis Zammick, who is strong y sus pected of having been directly concerned in the robbery of Mr. Abadie s shoe store Accused has often used the wagon which took away the plunder, and the womau_who owns it says that it was taken from her yard on the night in question while she was in bed. She will probably "rap" on Louis. True BiLL.-The Grand Jury returned a true bill against A. J. O'Brien, charged by Ji. Condon with embezzlement. Acting Recorder Heidenbain yesterday sent J. E. Johnson to the Criminal Court to he tried for stealing goods from the store o Messrs. Lisn A. Pinsard. No. lot Canal street. _ ____ Too Much Enterprise.— Several citizens called at the City Hall yesterday to inquire the standiug of an agency having an office at No. 223 Common street, the managers advertising, by cards, that the claims ot persons who suffered by the late overflow would be attended to. It was asserted that the "agency" demanded a deposit of $2 50 If citizens wish to procure the services of any one, let them call on a recognized attor nev. The parties seeking information were advised to be very careful in proceeding and they acce pted the advice. Fire Escape.— Mr. A. Hosmer will to day give a public exhibition of bis new tire escape apparatus, the place chosen being on Mr. Slocomb's hardward store, Canal street: time, six o'clock in the evening, Chief Engineer O'Connor, a feather weight, will sail down from an upper story in the machine. The inventor conies here for the purpose of introducing his machine, which is a very simple yet apparently exce t nt one. and low in price. How about those unsightly shanties on the levee, foot of Canal street! Business is so dull that several of them are closed. Were they moved off altogether the appear ance of things would be improved greatly. Some people are so uncharitable as to say these little hash foundries are nuisances. Certainly they are no more ornamental than are the rickety stands on the plaza iu front of Poydras market. Strangers are not favorably impressed by such unsightly cribs. ________ _ Stealing a Baby. —Some fellow, who is a disgrace to mankind, passing along St. I'eter street Wednesday evening, through an open door saw a mother and her baby sleeping quietly on a bed. In a spirit of fiendish mischief he silently slipped in and stole the infant, only fifteen days old, took it awav and left it on a doorstep on Bour bon street, where Officer Plancliard found it about eleven o'clock at niglit. when Ser geaut Newton kindly took it to his home to save it until some one should claim the poor little thing. A relative of the mother, iu searching for the infant, ascertained what disposition had been made ot it, and soon alter returned it to the affiicted parent. The mother's name is Malvina Pollock, living iu No. 225 St. Peter street. As yet no clue has been obtained as to w ho the mean perpetrator was. Only a mother can esti mate the agony that poor woman suffered until her offspring was restored. Discharged.— Mr. and Mrs. John Siebert, recently arraigned for larceny and breach of trust on complaint ot John Cardno, were discharged. No case. The name ot P. J. Hussy mars, the slate in the first precinct stationhouse. as having stolen $265 from Henry Warner, corner of Tchoupitoulas and Girod streets. Fires.—O ur firemen, the " best in the world," were pretty well rattled yesterday. An alarm turned in from Keller market proved to be a failure. Patrolman Murphy, the turner, is suspended from duty. A lighted candle placed too near a bed at No. 117 Hospital street, at the corner of Dauphine, set fire to the bedding and bed post in a room occupied by Mrs. Rollet. A little excitement and still less damage was the result. A fire broke out yesterday morning about half-past ten o'clock in Matthew Wards' two-story stable, situated on F reret street, between Melpomene and Thalia, which entirely consumed the building and about one hundred dollars worth ol feed. The stable was insured for $500. An adjoining two-story frame house, owned by Matthew Pottery and occupied by Mrs. King, was also destroyed. It is not known whether this building was insured. The total loss is about $3000. About half-past one o'clock yesterday morning a fire broke out in a newly con structed building, intended for a dairj, at the comer ol Upper Line and Long streets owned by Mr. Williamson Terry, which was completely destroyed. The building was unoccupied, hence the fire is supposed to have been the work of an incendiary. Mrs. Monaghan was severely burned on her hand yesterday morning while fillin coal oil lamp, at the grocery corner of Peters and Notre Dauie streets. The flames spread about the interior, hut were extin guished by policeman Carr before any seri ous damage could ensue. For Rent.— This sign may be seen on all ki&ds of dwellinghouses in all parts of the eitv. Housekeepers can now have their choice at slightly decreased rates. It is stated that Governor Warmoth has forwarded an order to the Sheriff of Ascen sion parish for the immediate release ol the Olivers, who were arrested in that parish for a crime of which they have been acquitted. _ __ Stop Thief.— It is well that Superin tendent Badger has ordered the special detectives in the several precincts to patrol at night, as much good may result. M e hear of some lively transactions in the upper portiou of our city, especially in the Sixth District, where burglars operate as freely as communists nearly every nigbt in the week. By way of a hint to the thieves will state that lately many of the resi lents in that section have purchased im proved firearms and polished up old ones. That is the method—lead and powder are unpalatalile. Let halt a dozen oi the tribe be food for coroners and we warrant the fraternity will seek other fields. It citizens are not inclined to shoot, let them provide themselves with an alarm whistle, a toy which is a terror to burglars. Pleasant Reception. The following private dispatch from Yorkville, South Carolina, dated July 24, has been received by a gentleman in W asli ington: _ , The sub committee on Soutbern outrages arrived here yesterday evening. At the supper table at the hotel the Hon. J. L. Stevenson, of the committee, and the Hon. A. J. Wallace, representative of the dis trict were assaulted as they took their seats hr Major James Berry, a prominent citizen, and a pitcher of milk was thrown over them. Wallace drew a revolver, but Maior Berry was surrounded by mends, and he left the hotel. At nine o clock the committee was serenaded by a negro band, and a crowd collected. As the baud was retiring an affray took place, and one ne<m. W as shot, receiving three wounds. No arrests have been nuidv. A Washington dispatch to the New York Herald says: The suit of the United States ys. the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad Com pany, which lias been pending since Aoveui 1),".'-1869, in the Circuit Court ol the l mteu States, has been compromised. The rail road company pays to the Lmted states *1 000,000 in the bonds ol the company, bearing four per cent interest and running twenty and forty years. The amount in controversy was about $l,/o0,000, and was the amount claimed by the government lor rolling stock, material and improvements which the road received during and at the close of the rebellion. The government set tled the case under authority of a joint reso lution passed by Congress at its last session, which gave to the Var Department and counsel employed in the cause power to coniproniise upon the basis of equity and justice. __ ^ We copy this dispatch from the Memphis Sun: New York, July 25.-A dispatch was re ceived here eontainiug information of rible earthquake reported to have °ccu on tbe Phiilipine Islands, situated on Malax Archepelago. Over 2000 persons were swal lowed up and lost.

Usurpation in Sit. James Parish. The St. James Sentinel of July 15 says: As there is no recognized Parish Execu tive Committee for St. James, the State Central Executive Committee has appointed Messrs. Henry Riley, Adolphe Tureaud, George E. Bovee, Adam Travis, L. E. Bent ley, Samuel Cook and J. W. Hunsaker as a Parish Executive Committee, whose duty it is to conduct the election tor delegates to a parish convention. There will be a meet ing of this committee on Monday evening next, July 27. at five o'clock. A full attend ance is desired. To which the New Orleans Louisianian replies: "Now we remember perfectly that when this very question was referred to in the recent Press Convention, Mr. L. E. Bentley, the editor of the Sentinel, rose and stated that this committee was appointed to organize the people so as to lorm a parish committee, and 'was not to conduct the election.' How comes this now ? Will the people of the parish of St. Janies submit to be choked off in this way ! Can they not, will they not understand that they have the exclusive right to form their own parish committee ? Who is it that could dare to refuse 'recognition' to the parish committee elected by the Republicans of St. James * Let the people of that parish know that they are not only sacrificing one of tlieir sacred rights, but they are also incurring the risk of the refusal by the convention of 'recognition' to the representative elected by a bogus parish committee." The Real Issue. Tbe Big-Stone-Trio, whose headquarters are situated in New Orleans, employs all its sophistry, and puts its ingenuity to the rack, with the vain hope of creating throughout the State the impression that all who sup port Governor Warmoth are at war witli the rights and interests of the colored man. The soreheads in the different parishes ot the State have taken up the Big-Stone-Tune: "If we can succeed in making the colored men of the State lmlieve that by holding Lieutenant Governor Dunn up before us as our champion (we are concealing our de formities), we must be the best friends ot the colored people." These men may be illustrated l»y the man who went out on the common to catch his horse: he advanced with a bridle in one hand behind his back and an ear ot corn held out in front, saying to the horse, "kope, kope:" but when caught he rode the horse under the whip and spur. So these men have the gubernatorial office behind their back and Lieutenant Governor Dunn in front, saving to tbe colored voters, "kope, kope." Mark what we say; if they catch you, you will have an awful jading in a four-year s heat . Is Governor Warmoth your enemy : All over the State colored men of competency nave office by his appointment. We might mention a thousand names or more, but let us be brief. Who appointed Mr. Barber, Pinchback, Ingraham. Delassize, Clay, Vigers and Chase ? Through whose man agement were the colored laborers put upon the streets all over the city of New Orleans? Governor Warmoth, who led the friends ol reconstruction against a formidable enemy to a complete success, and brought Louis iana from chaos to the sure road to pros perin' and greatness, while bearing with him the bitterest malignity of liis personal and political defamers. He has been tried by a fiery ordeal. That trial has only bur nished his character. Let his ambitious assailants wrangle and snarl at him. He is independent and proud Independent in a knowledge that he is right, and proud that he is able to defend it .—Dalon JRuuye Journal. Once more there is an opportunity to win the capital prize of fifty thousand dollars in the Louisiana State Lottery by purchasing a ticket for twenty dollars. The drawing is to take place to-morrow, and among the twenty thousand tickets sold one will be the lucky number. To any reader, there fore, we may say, " You may be the for tunate possessor of the lucky number. There are many who regard the whole busi ness of life as one continued lottery, and that it is just as proper and prudent to in vest twenty dollars in a lottery ticket, witli the chance of winning fifty thousand dol lars, as to buy a stock of goods to sell them again for the sake of the profits. That is not the logic of all. it is true, but it is a logic that has put maijy on the road to tortune. Public drawing to-morrow. It lias often been remarked tliat it costs more to die tban to live in this eity, and that it frequently happens that a poor fel low's estate is completely exhausted by the undertaker who puts him in the tomb Now, whatever may he the truth ot this in regard to undertaders generally, it cer tainly does not apply to our friend Mr. John Grayer, the well-known undertaker, of Nos. 35 and 37 Elysian Fields street, and proprietor ot tlie Pluenix Stables, ol that locality. Mr. Grayer is at the same time a first class business man and a man of feeling, and his prices are always low, while his funerals are invariably stylish aud satisfactory. His livery business is also conducted on tlie same liberal plan. He deserves patronage. SPECIAL NOTICES. Office of the Upper Bed Kiver Raft Com pany of Louisiana.
