Gone. —Dummy, the unspeakable young
man who, in a moment of temporary aber
Tation, appropriated the sum of one hundred
and forty dollars from W. H. Lillard, of
Tangipahoa, has taken an excursion to that
town for the benefit of justice.
Horseflesh.— The love of this delicate
meat has brought Jerry Arnol to repentant
tears. Seeing four feet of halter dangling
loosely on the plantation of H. Boisblanc,
near Kennerville, accused seized hold of it
and marched off at a round pace. Singular
to relate, a horse followed as willingly as if
going for a bin of oats.- This little diver
sion has been construed into a larceny, for
which Arnol will have a hearing before Re
corder Houghton on the twelfth instant.
George Walker who severely wounded
Henry Brown, corner of Cypress gnd How
ard streets, fifteenth of July, will have an
examination on the tenth instant.

Taking Tume.— Rebecca Porter was not
afraid to look on the face of a gold watch,
as it had no eyes to Bee her steal it from its
owner, corner of Camp and Julia streets.
Rebecca's pulse is heating funeral marches

Broken Skull.—I n June last, Harvey
Simms was sent from the parish of St.
James to the Charity Hospital, very sick.
He lingered until Wednesday, when Jie
died. After death it was discovered that
his skull was crushed in slightly, and
Coroner Creagh's jury concluded that
death was caused by the fracture. It is
not known how Simms received the wound,
and the jury had no means of ascertaining.
Police. —J. Collins, first precinct, "and J.
/ O'Donnell, third precinct, were dismissed
the police force yesterday.
An Answer. —A New York paper of the
thirty-first ultimo, states that there is no
yellow fever in New' Orleans.
No. there is none, and no explosion of
ferryboat boilers, murdering citizens by the
score. - We have our little diversions in the
wsJy of shooting affrays and such; one here
for every six in New York.
Officer Hirt, last evening, found a man
lying on the ground corner of Front and
Poydras streets, apparently very drunk.
Taking him to the stationhouse, it was- then
■first discovered that the unfortunate was
quite unconscious from a wound on his
bead. How or when he received the injury
is not known. He was unable *to converse
and his name was not ascertained.
Cool. —The weather being rather frigid,
Hattie Marshall thought to warm her lean
body by piling on eight blankets, ^for
tunately the blankets belong to Delia Davis,
who objected to the confiscation, conse
quently Hattie took a bath in the first pre
cinct sweat box.
On the Track.—A bout eight o'clock last
Thursday night a policeman in Carrollton
found a man named George H.Squares, fifty
two years old, lying bleeding between the
street car rails in Greenville. 4 11 exainina
tion of the individual revealed that he was
drunk and had fallen, badly injuring, his
hand, whence flowed the blood. lie was
taken to his home, on Chestnut street.
There was a large and enthusiastic gath
ering of the Repudlicans of the Fourteenth
Ward night before last, at their club rooms
on Broadway street. Speeches were made
by Messrs. Eerkins, Boone and Brown, after
whieii an election was held for two dele
gates to the . parish executive committee
The following named gentlemen having re
ceived the greatest number of votes were
declared duly elected: J. Madison Brown
and J. H. Hillman. The club then ad
journed.
His Condition.—A rthur Guerin was still
very low last evening, and it was thought
his lease on life was short.
A Sudden Departure —A Frenchman
Take* French Leave .—We find the follow
ing hit of local history in the Bulletin. As
the reporter of that paper was well ac
quainted with the man of easy flight, we
copy the narrative which interests so many
It is sad to know that Mr. Dumonteil, who
on thousands of occasions, stood flatly on
his dignity, should suddenly entirely forget
that accomplishment and slide out, without
even wafting a single farewell irom a per
fumed handkerchief: . '
Among the list of passengers from New
Orleans which left New York this week for
Europe, the name of Colonel Felix,Dumon
toil and family appears. There would be
nothing surprising in this, hut that the gal
lant Colonel was believed by his creditor:
to be quietly enjoying the comforts of
viUegiature in the little town of Tangipahoa,
on the line of the Jackson railroad, whence
he would soon return to settle, his accounts.
We combine a brief account of the
Colonel's career in this city, together with
the circumstances attending his flight. Two
or three years prior to the war Colonel Du
monteil made his appearance among us.
coming from Bordeaux, France, and until
the secession movement commenced- re
mained fa obscurity. Jn 1861, when the pre
lituinary preparations for war were being
made, his known ability as an instructor in
the manual of arms, which he had acquired
in the French service, caused him to be cm
\)loyed by the Orleans Guard Battalion
which was then forming and needed a com
petent instructor. *
His military talents, a handsome face and
splendid figure, aud a bright intelligence,
soon made dim popular. Following the for
tunes of the body to which he had attached
himself, we find him a major of the Thir
tieth Louisiana at the battle of Baton
Rouge, where he distinguished himself l>y
his gallantry. His connection with the
regiment was subsequently severed, aud
he became the commander of a body of
cavalry operating about Jackson, Missis
sippi, and on the line of the railroad, ac
quitting himself with credit of his onerous
duties.
duties.
The war being ended, Colonel Dumonteil
returned to this city and engaged in the
general brokerage business, which he pur
sued with the success which always attends
energy and strict business habits.
Belianger, the proprietor of the fashion
able confectionery at the comer of Canal
and Bourbou streets, having made a for
tune at the business and desiring to return
to his native France, sold his establishment
to Colonel Dumonteil, a well knowu gentle
man backing him in the enterprise as part
ner in commendam. The establishment
thereafter flourished under the name of Du
monteil's, until within about eighteen
months, when this partner retired from the
concern, whose business was now on the de
cline, owing to the conditioff of business
generally in New Orleans.
Although to all appearances the Colonel
attended steadily to his business, it was
pretty well known that his fandness for the
sex led him into extravagances which de
pleted his purse, and eventually he found
himself compelled to convert the brilliant
confectionery into a rumshop. For some
time past' he had resumed his regular habits,
and it was believed or hoped by every one
of his friends that in due course of time he
would be enabled to settle his accounts, and
even his creditors exhibited a marked con
fidence in him.
On Sunday before last Colonel Dumon
teil w.'^5 one of the gayest visitors to the
Pontchartrain lake end, spending Iris, money
freelv and making a night of it with a
couple of flashy women whom he met there.
During the preceding week a fire broke out
in his residence on Broad street, caused, as
he reported, by the explosion of a coal oil
lamp.
The damage to the furniture and wearin
apparel was considerable, but fully covered
by insurance, to the'extent, we learn, of
$8000. His friends having jeered him on
the subject, he laughed at the idea and
stated that the building, which belonged to
his wife, was either heavily mortgaged or
sold. The explanation cheeked the busy
tongues.
Ou Tuesday last, calling to see the Col
onel on business, we were informed that he
had Jet't for Tangipahoa on a visit to his
wife, and would have been back on that
day, but that one of his children was sick,
and, he wrote, he had to delay his return.
Since that time he has not been heard from,
and the surprise of everybody was great
upon noticing in the New York papers that
he was on his way for Europe.
The liabilities of Colonel Dumonteil are
estimated at $60,000, at least, with little or
nothing in his establishment to meet his
debts.
A sugar refiner suffers to the extent of
$1300: a broker to the tune of from $3000
to $10,000. One of his own clerks suffers a
loss of over $2000, and another clerk a loss
of $200, borrowed money. In fact nearly
every one of the employes of the house
sutlers to some extent, whereas the greater
losers are among our first class importers.
As we have said, there is scarcely any
thing left to meet the claims against thq ab
sconding merchant, who even took the pre
caution to discount the rent notes given to
him by persons to whom he had sub-leased
portions of his front store, and amounting
in the aggregate to between $3000 ana
$4000.
$4000.
Criminal Court.— The rule for a new
trial in the c-ase of Garvey and Earle, found
guilty of murder, was continued until next
Friday.
A new trial was granted Edward
Donnely, convicted of killing Dennis
Gallagher, or Kelly, on the ground
that one of the jurors who tried
liim had served under a wrong name; that
is, George Tate assumed the name of James
Tate, his son, who had been drawn, but who
died about the time. For this offense Tate
was fined one hundred dollars, aud impris
oned ten days.
Benjamin Taylor and Henry Voegling,
for larceny, on plea of guilty, were sen
te i*-ed to three months Parish Prison.
Handy Gedley, for assault and battery,
was sentenced to pay a tine of $30, or one
month in Parish Prison, on plea of guilty.
Morgan Kennedy, for larceny, was sen'
tenccd to Parish Prison for ten months.
Marie Boudreau, convicted of larceny,
was sentenced to eight months hard labor
in the Penitentiary.
George lowers, convicted of laroeny, one
month Parish Prison.
Ephraim Brown was convicted of wound

Annie Johnson was convicted of wound

Anatole Decourt was convicted of lar

The Steamship Wharf. —We understand
from the Administrator of Improvements
that it is in contemplation shortly to com
mence repairs on the steamship wharf at
the head of Toulouse street. Repairs on
the other wharves will also be begun in a
short time. In front of the Creole Market,
below St. Ann street, a portion of the wharf
has-been considerably twisted and thrown
............
out of shape by the recent land slide, and
the repair of this 'will also demand the at
tention ot the administrator.
The Club.— The Grand Jury yesterday
returned a true bilk against Officer William
Campbell for assaulting and battering citi
zen Anton Baumann on the twenty-eighth

Arrested. —Edwuid Thomas has been
recognized as the man v ho assas -mated
Officer Bensel, in Carrollton, a few days
ago.
Serenade. —The Fifth Ward Mother club
and one of the Sixth Ward Republican clubs
passed up town in procession last evening,
and their bands serenaded the Republican
office. For this pleasant compliment our
thanks are tendered.
We have received a neatly printed pam
phlet embracing the rules and regulations
of the Claiborne Agricultural Society, list
of premiums, etc., for the second annual
Fair, which will commence at Homer on the
twenty-fifth of October, and continue four
days. The pamphlet was printed at the
office of the Claiborne Advocate.
Deserted Children.— Somewhere on St.
Joseph street, between St. Charles and
Dryades streets—skulking in dirty alleys
and sleeping under rickety sheds; begging
crumbs of the charitablo or eating garbage
that dogs disdain to touch—.we hear that
there are two little children, v*ho have been
driven by a drunken and unnatural mother
to wander upon the streets, from sheer
terror produced by her cruel conduct.
The boy is about eight years old, and the
girl five or six. It is said that the face of
the girl is bruised aud blackened by re
peated beatings, inflicted, by its fiendish
parent, aud that the hoy has slept in the
street several nights, subsisting on the
relfise of the gutters, and reclining on bricks
and stones wherever he can find shelter
from the vigilant eye ot the police. Both
of the children are in rags, and in a starving
coudition, while the mother frequents low
drinking dens, clad in tattered garments,
making companionship with disreputable
characters. Is there no "Good Samaritan"
among the numerous neighbors, having a
knowledge of these facts, who will see that
these innocent children—framed in the
image of the angels, but companioned with
a fiend—are handed over to .he guardian
ship of some one of the benevolent institu
tions that exist in this city ? The case calls
for the active interference of the benevo
lent. __
Peneciiaud's PaVilion Burned.— Mil
neburg had a warm sensation last night in
the burning of Denecliaud's pavilion. It
was owned by the Pon tcbnrtrain Railroad
•Company, and was probably worth about
three thousand dollars; uninsured. Mr.
Denechaud had a lease. His loss is not
great; no insurance. The fire commenced
in the oil room, but it is not known how.
To-night, the lessee intended giving a ball,
the last of the season, in the building. This
will be bad news to the frequenters of that
locality, as the place had gained some f^vor
in the estimation of visitors to that section.
Throwing a Rock.— As a train of the
Pontchartrain cars was passing along the
levee, head of Bienville street, somebody
threw a rock through a window, the missile
striking Mr. J. H. Carter, secretary ot th®
company, wounding him badly. The man
who threw the rock was arrested, and gave
his name as James Coat.
Transportation of Goods in Bond.
Instructions have been received here from
the Treasury Department, in reference to
the transportation of imported goods in
bond from New Orleans to auy point in
this collection district, including Natchez,
Memphis, Vicksburg, Cairo, St. Louis,
Nashville, Louisville and Cincinnati.
Steamboats taking goods in bond are not
required to wait here for a clearance, as
heretofore, hut may depart as soon as the
goods are on hoard. The advantage is, that
our river steamers may take on goods for
transportation in bond at any time after the
Customhouse ha3 closed, and depart with
out delay. Heretofore, steamers have been
detained until the succeeding day, and
sometimes from Saturday night till Monday
morning; awaiting a clearance.
\Ve learn from Deputy Collector Charnp
lin that this desirable result has been
brought about by the efforts of the Custom
house officials here.
Growth of the Petroleum Trade.
According to the annual report of the
New York Chamber of Commerce, just is
sued, the exports of petroleum in 1870 were
thirty-seven per cent greater than those* of
the previous year, and that nearly all this
increase, or thirty-three peg, cent, is ac
counted for by the shipment from the port
of New York. The total export from the
United States iu 1870 was 141,208,155 gal
lons, against 1.500,000 in 1860, and 99,281,000
gallons in 1868, showing an increase of
nearly 42,000,000 gallons in two years. The
first sale noticed for export was in May,
1861, when 100,000 gallons were sent to
foreign markets. Antwerp, which has
since led all other ports in the importation
of petroleum, took in that year 5671 gal
lons, increasing the amount in the follow
ing year more than 800,000 gallons. Great
Britain 579,000 in 1861, and in 1862 increased
her importation to 3,238,000 gallons. The
continued growth of this trade for ten
years—from 1,500,000 gallons in 1860 to
141,000,000 in 1870—is a wonderful exhibit,
not only on the accoqnt of the rapid devel
opment of the oil interest, but also because
the yearly increase has been steady. The
daily average product of the Pennsylvania
oil district in December, 1867, was 10,400
gallons; in the same month of 1870 it'was
15,214 gallons—a fact which iiovs the inex
haustibility of the wells in that region. In
regard to tbe homo consumption, it is esti
mated that it is equal to one-half the quan
tity exported, making in round numbers an
aggregate consumption of 211,000,000 gal
lons annually. This enormous amount,
reckoning the price at an average of twenty
cents per gallon, represents a value of more
than $12,000,000 for a single year—certainly
.remarkable return for ajproduct unknown
to commerce ten years ago.

New Orleans August 4. J871.—To the
public-, and particularly to fhe Republicans of the
Fifth Ward: A publication in the New Orleans Re
S ublican of this morning, stating that the preai
ent of th* Fifth Ward Radical Republican
Mother Club was impeached is really laughable.'
Tbe facts of tbe matter can lietter be judged of by
the bona fide voters of the Fifth Ward.
Now, I would state for .the information of the
public that, according to tbe constitution of our
ciub, all imiteachment of officers must lie over on©
week; besides, it requires two thirds of the mem
bers of the club to impeach an officer, and the im
peachment must take place iu presence of the offi
cers of tbe club, not one of whom was present at
the meeting. The meeting should be held iu the
hall of the club, and not in the middle of the street,
as was the case in this instonce. The president of
the mother ward dub feels confident that a very
small minority of the|bonafide voters of said ward
would attempt to impeach him.
In eimclusion, at the last meeting of our club,
July 2T, 1871, the club was adjourned until August
10, 1871. Therefore, auy weetim; held between
July 27 and August 10,18*1, is illegwl, null and void.
