PARISH EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.
The Executive Committee of the parish
of Orleans met in the hall of the House of
Representatives on Saturday, the fifth in
stant, at twelve o'clock, pursuant to ad
journment. Thirty-four members answered
to their names.
The minutes of the previous meeting were
read, and, on motion of Mr. Thomas Isa
belle, were corrected so as to read "Fri
day" instead of "Thursday," and then
adopted as corrected.
Reports of committees being next in
order, the committee on the conduct of the
elections rendered a partial report. A mo
tion prevailed to take a recess of half an
hour to enable the committee 4o complete
and return a full report.
The receSs having expired, the meeting
was called to order, William H. Green, first
vice president, in the chair. The roll being
called, thirty members answered to their
names.
President Dibble having taken the chair,
the following report was presented by the
committee on the conduct of the elections:
FIRST WARD.
The First Ward has two clubs, each -claiming to
be the mother ward club; it appears from evidence
on file, that, at the election for officers, held on
June 5, 1871, Mr. Thomas Isabelle received the
largest number of votes for president of the club,
whereupon Mr. Miller started another club, and
whereupon Mr. Miller started another clul
caused himself to be elected president.
Your committee are, therefore, in favor of recog
nizing the club of which Ur. Isabelle is president,
•nil A. Frilot, secretary, as the true mother club.
SECOND WARD.
The Second Ward has two clubs, each of which
claims to be the mother ward club. From the evi
dence on tile, you:- committee have decided to re
cognize as the true mother club that presided over
by Mr. C. F. Glaudin.
THIRD WARD.
The Third Ward has one regular constituted
mother ward club, of which ©scar J. Dunn is pre
sident, and T. M. Kavauagh, secretary.
FOURTH WARD.
The Fourth Ward has one mother club; F. McK.
Duun is president, and John W. Roxborrongh secre
tary.
FIFTH WARD.
The Fifth Ward has two clubs claiming to be
mother ward clubs. From evidence on file it is
proven that the club presided over by Mr. J. C.
Kuebler, is the regular mother club of the ward.
SIXTH WARD.
The Sixth Ward has two clubs, each of which
claim to be the mother club. From evidence pro
duced before the committee it is proven that the
club of which Mr. F. P. Benedict is president, and
A. Caplo is secretary, should be recognized as the
true mother ward club.
SKVKNTH WARD.
The Seventh Waril has two clubs claiming to be
mother ward clubs. From statements on file, your
committee are convinced that the club of which H.
L. Key is president, and W. H. Green secretary, is
the true mother club of the ward.
■ IGHTH WARD.
The Eighth Ward has one mother club, of which
E. V. Leclere is president, and F. Barthelrmy secre
tary. v
NrHTH ward.
The Ninth Ward has two clubs, each of which
claim to be the regular mother ward club. From
evidence brought before the committee, wp recom
mend the recoguitioa of the club presided over by
Mr. W. C. Kinsella as the regular mother ward club.
TRXTH WARD,
The Tenth Ward has two clubs, each claiming to
be the mother club of the ward, one of which
John H. Bowen is president, and one with Battle
Payne as president. On the fifteenth day ot May
1871, the regular mother club from the last cam
pa.gn adjourned, for aa election of officers, to the
twenty-second of the same month.
Mr. Battle Payne, unauthorized by the old
mother club or any other authority, held an elec
tion on the seventeenth day of May, and elected
officers, while the regular election for officers, ac
cording to the call with the,.regular roll of the
Tenth Ward, was held on the twenty-second of Slay,
1871, when John H. Bowen was elected president
and Mr. William H. Burroughs, secretary. We,
therefore, recommend that the club of which John
H. Bowen is president, which meets at the comer of
Fulton and St. Mary streets, be declared the regu
lar mother club of the Republican party in the
Tenth Ward, and that the election of delegates to
the State Republican Convention be held as advet
tised by the president of said club, at Miles' School
house, comer Josephine street, at the Intersection
of Fulton street, from 2 P. M. to 8 P. M.,on Monday,
August 7,1871.
KLKVIXTH WARD.
The Eleventh Ward has only one organized Re
publican club, of which Ed. Williams is president
aud John Flowers secretary. This club meets on
Sixth, between St. Patrick and St. David streets.
We recommend that this club be declared to be
the regular Republican Mother Club of the Elev
enth Ward.
4 TWKLFTH WARD.
The Twelfth Ward has two clubs, each of which
claims to be the motherclub. After examining the
history and claims of each, we have come to the
conclusion that the club now presided over by
Paul Bruce has no claims to entitle it to be desig
nated the mother club. We are satisfied that the
club of which D. V. Woodruff is president, and
John Moyian is secretary^ is the regular Repub
lican Mother Club of the Twelfth Ward. It meets
on Marengo, near Magazine street, and we recom
mend that it be so declared and recognized by the
Parish Committee.
THIRTKKSTH WARD
The Thirteenth Ward has only one club claiming
to be the mother club. J. B. Gandet is president.
This club meets on Valence street, between Chest
nut aud Camp streets. We recommend that it be
declared the regular Republican Mother Club
of the Thirteenth Ward.
VOTTRTKRNTH WARD.
The Fourteenth Ward has but one club claiming
to be the mother club. Madison Brown is presi
dent. This club meets in Robinson's church, two
squares above the Foucher property.
PiFTRBNTH WARD.
The Fifteenth Ward has two clubs claiming to be
the mother club, From statements and evidence
S resented to us, we find that the club of which
enjamin Buchanan is president, aiul C. P. Ames
is secretary, is the regular mother club of the Fif
teenth Ward, and we recommend that the parish
committee recognize and declare this to he the reg
ular Republican Mother Club of the Fifteenth WArd.
The club meets at the comer of Boniface and
Jackson streets.
In order to insure a fair election in the different
wards throughout this parish for delegates to the
State Convention, your committee recommeud the
adoption of the following resolution, and earnestly
entreat all true Republicans to sustain the regular
mother clubs in their respective w ards:
Resolved, That the president and secretary be
instructed to give notice in the Now Orleans Re
publican of the location of the mother ward clubs,
their officers, and the hours of election, on Mon
day, August 7.
The report of the committee and resolu
tion appended thereto were unanimously
adopted.
The committee on rules presented a re
port, the reading of which, on motion of
Mr. William Vigers, was dispensed with,
and ghe consideration of the report laid
over until the next meeting.
The following resolutions, offered by Mr.
Bechtel, wer^ adopted:
Whereas At a meeting held August 3, 1871, by
the State Central Executive Committee, the follow
ing resolutions have been adopted by the Fifth
Ward Club:
Resolved, That the President of the State Com
mittee be and he is hereby authorized to secure a
suitable meeting place for the assemblage of the
State Convention, to be held on the ninth day of
August, 1871, in this city, and give public notice of
the place so secured on or before Tuesday morning,
the eighth of August, 1871, through the columns of
the New Orleans Republican, and other city pa
pers, and the delegates elected are hereby notified
to attend and respond to the notice of the Presi
dent upon the day of meeting.
By Mr. Ray:
Resolved, That only those who are returned as
delegates to the Convention, according to the re
turns forwarded to the President of the Executive
Committee, and to those who may contest the
seats of such delegates as may be shown by evl
denoe presented to the President of the Executive
and the members
at a time when the powers of the present State
Central Committee will have expired by
Committee, and the members of the present Exe
cutive Committee and their Secretary, shall be ad
mitted to the hall of the Convention until after the
permanent organization of the Convention, and
that the President of the Central Executive Com
mittee be authorized to prepare tickets and a list
of the persons to be admitted, and submit the
same to this committee on Tuesday evening the
eighth instant, for their action.
And whereas, It is now clearly apparent that
said Executive Committee has not only exceeded
its powers, bnt usurped powers which can only be
exercised by the members of the convention, and
esent State
j limitation;
and
Whereas, The facts are patent that it is the in
tention of the members comprising the sub-execu
tive committee, of whieh S. B. Packard ia chair
man, to fraudulently pack said convention, as may
readily be inferred from the resolutions introduced
by Mr. Ray, in the interest of a! small clique, com
posed of a few federal officeholders and malcon
tents, who are usitig their utmost energies to role
or ruin the Republican party of Louisiana, be it
Resolved, That we, the regularly oraititsted
delegation of the parish of Orleans, in committee,
enter our solemn protest against the action of the
State Central Committee as anti-Repuhlican and a
usurpation of rights solely belonging to the people
in convention assembled.
Resolved. That the Executive Committee of tho
Parish of Orleans prepare a statement of all the
facts'which are necessary, to show that some of
the federal office-holders of Louisiana, who are
members of the State Central Committee, have
contributed their best efforts to disrupt, demoralise
tho Republican party of this State;
id disorganise th
> it further
Resolved, That (
Resolved, That certified copies of the resolutions
offered by Mr. Bay be sent to the National Execu
tive Committee of the Republican party, at Wash
ington, namely:
1. Tbe resolution calling a convention, and in
which the place ef meeting was purposely omitted.
2. The resolution of August 3. 1371, creating 8. B.
Packard a committee on credentials, with power to
decide who are ihe bona fide delegates, and who
are the contestants; all of which is to be done be
fore a meeting of the convention—which is to be a
private affair, as tickets of admittance are re
quired.
J. D. O'Connell presented the following
resolutions, which Mr. William H. Green
moved to table.
The motion to table being lost, the ques
tion recurred upon the adoption of the reso
lutions, and was carried.
Wherbab, The State Centmi Executive Commit
tee of the Republican party of the State of Louisi
ana, contrary to the rules governing and preroga
tive* vested in all conventions aud deliberative
assemblies, pretend : o the unwarrantable and un
precedented assumption of receiving the creden
tials, and thereby constituting themselves judges
of tbe election returns and qualifications of the
delegates to the convention; and
Whereas, The said committee, in order the more
easily to control and manipulate the convention,
and thereby perpetuate their own power, which
power has been grossly abused by said committee,
and more especially by the president and corre
sponding secretary of said committee, S. B. Pack
ard and P. F. Her wig, in garbling the resolution of
the committee talling-a State Convention, by omit
ting in the publication of the resolution the par
ticular time aud place of meeting; and
Whereas, The said committee has encroached
upon the rights and privileges of the peeple of the
parish of Orleans, and of this committee, by desig
nating a day for the election of delegates to tbe
State Convention, and thereby and otherwise at
tempting to suppress the right of the people to
elect their own parish committee; and
Whereas, The duty of designating a day for the
election, being a strictly local matter, belongs
solely aud exclusively to the parish committee;
therefore, be it
Resolved, That the commissioners of election in
each of the wards of the city oi New Orleans shall
make duplicate certificates of election for t he can
didates receiving the highest numbetof votes, said
certificates to be marked "original" and "dupli
cate," countersigned and attested by the presi
dents aid secretaries of the mother ward clubs, the
'duplicates" to lie delivered by tht) commissioners
of election, in tbe presence of the presidents and
secretaries of the mother clubs, to the president of
the State Central Executive Committee.
Resolved, That the "original" be delivered to the
delegates elect, to be by them presented to the
convention as tbe credentials proper.
Resolved, That the delivery of the "duplicates"
to the President of the State Committee be consid
ered of no further or greater validity than tor its
information of the choice of delegatefhy the peo
ple, aud in no manner to be construed as conceding
to tbe said State Committee the right to deter
mine, or in any manner decide who are tho duly
elected delegates, that being a sovereign right ex
clusively reserved by the people, and to be deter
mined by them through the con vest ion.
Resolved, That we view the attempts of the
State Central Committee to constitute itselfiudgi
of the elections, returns and qualifications or tne
delegates to the convention as a gross attempt to
usurp the rights and privilege* of the convention,
to enable them to reject the chosen representatives
of the people, and foist into the convention those
with whom they hope to be able to barter for a
perpetuation of power.
Resolved,' That the said committee, by its at
tempt to suppress the people's rights ia the parish
of Orleans, to elect their own parish executive
committee, is no longer entitled to, nnd has ut
terly forfeited, the confidence of the Republicans
of this parish, and of this committee.
Resolved. That as the direct and immediate rep
resentatives of over twenty-five thousand Repub
lican vaters m the parish of Orleans, we denounce
and condemn, as an unpardonable breach of trust
and unmitigated treachery to the Republican
ng for aconvention. and that the president
and corresponding secretary of said committee are
especially unworthy of any future positions of
trust or confidence in the Republican party, inas
much as they, being the custodians of the records of
the committee, can alone be held responsible for
this breach of faith.
Resolved. That recognizing the State Central
Executive Committee as the legitimate supreme
head of the party in the State, we desire that it
shall be composed of men of undoubted integrity,
and fair dealing, incapable of creating dissension
aod division in our ranks, and to tills end we appeal
to our own constituents, and to the Republicans
throughout the State, to instruct their delegates
to the convention to root out, if not all, at least
those of the present State Committee, as have be
trayed the trust reposed in them fay the people, and
have taken advantage of their positions to turn dis
organize rs in our ranks to enhance their own private
personal ambition, and we further ask the people
to instruct their delegates to present their creden
tials to the convention, the only proper authority
to receive and pass upon them, and to deliver au
thentic copies of the same to the President of the
State Central Executive Committee, as a record of
information for said committee.
The following resolution by Hon. P. B. S
Pinckback, was adopted:
Whereas, It has been public!' stated that the
Republican party in this State has been divided,

New Bice. ,
The following from Mr. James Wood,
agent for the Empire Parish SSteam Rice
Mill, explains itself:
I send you a sample of twenty-one bar
rels of new rice grown in the parish of
Plaquemines, on the farm of F. Buras.
The rice was hulled and polished at the
Empire Parish Steam Rice Mill, Pointe-a-la
Hache. It is bright and well milted, though
somewhat broken, as is common with new
rice.
Last year the first lot of the new crop,
consisting of ten barrels, came to hand on
the tenth of August. Of that lot three bar
rels classed prime, and brought eleven
cents. In 1869, the first lot, numbering five
barrels, was received here on the twelfth of
August, classed prime, and was sold at ten
cents. The year previous six barrels ot the
first new rice made their appearance in this
market on the tenth of August and brought
eleven cents.
On many farms harvesting has already
commenced, but in two weeks from'now it
will be well under way. The ears are gen
erally well filled and quite heavy. With
warm, bright, sunny days to cure and stack
the grain, the crop would be a tffrge one.
Rice often suffers greatly from heavy
storms of wind and rain at this season o'f
the year. It is beaten down to the ground,
the seeds are shed and rotted by moisture.
Very little rice will be marketed'ber'ore the
first of September.
Reopening of the Crescent Hall.—
There was a very large crowd attracted last
night on the occasion of the reopening of
that favorite billiard and refreshment
saloon—fhe Crescent Hall, corner of St.
Charles and Canal streets. Being among
the number, we could not but be surprised
at the magnificent establishment which has
been made out of the unsightly old building
which formerly disgraced the most valuable
corner in the city. It was really an inspira
tion of genius which must have prompted
Colonel Walter Merriam when he eoneeived
l£e idea to transform a rambling and un
profitable old pile of brick and mortar, which
resembled a barrack, into one of the most
elegant buildings, architecturally, in the
city, and to utilize its hitherto almost worth
less interior by making it the largest billiard
room in the world. And like all good ideas'
it has paid. The Crescent is the headquar
ters of billiard players, and deserves to be.
The possibility of getting pianos and
organs which can afford satisfaction and at
the same time be had at a reasonable price,
has long been doubted. It will be seen th at
Philip Werlein, Nos. 80 and 82 Baronne
street, has solved this problem, offering
these musical instruments at far less rates
and of as good material as at other places.
Money can be saved by the purchase of
either a piano or aa organ, the piano being
of excellent tone and the organ ol superior
power. But a visit to the warerooms would
amply repay the time and attention given,
and satisfy any one of the truth of these
assertions.
Religious Notice.— Divine services will
be held to-day in Ames Methodist church,

The latest matrimonial engagement an
nounced is that of Miss Chandler, only
daughter of the millionaire Senator from
Michigan, to Mr. Eugene Hale, the young,
handsome and eloquent representative in
Congress from the Fifth Maine district. It
is said that the lady's parents only consent
to the engagement upon condition that the
young couple shall reside with them after
the marriage, as they are uhwilling to sepa
rate from their only child.
The Sheriff will sell, at auction, to-morrow
at half-past ten o'clock, on the premises
corner of Delord and Magazine streets,
First District, movables, carriages, hearses,

Tho following is the result: Diaz, 1982;
Juarez, 1963; Lerdo, 1386.
There being no choice, according to the

against him.
An attempt will be made to unite the
