Satisfaction given or no pay. my4 ly of as of i Opinion* of the Pres*. We copy the following from the New York Globe, a journal that advocates the renomination of President Grant: Political affairs in Louisiana attract con siderable attention; they have certainly as sumed a peculiar phase, and the people of this country may well ask what it means. A\ e read in the Tribune of a "Customhouse party ' in this State, which is understood to he tbe party of the administration, which attempts to control the State in it* own in terests. Unfortunately for the Republicans ot Xew York, the "Customhouse party'" is not strong or popular enough to carry with it the party, although it may succeed iu dividing it, throwing victory upon the ban ners of the Democrats. The opinion is daily growing stronger and stronger among the people, that federal officeholders should have a* little as possible to do with politics. The people are to determine who shall be their servants, and they dislike to be dic tated to by any set of officials. Men who are elected to office, or receive federal ap pointments, should have something else to do besides exerting an influence to per petuate their power. Let all officeholders attend to their legitimate business, and the voters of this country will take care of them selves. Thus far there has been no di rect conflict between the "Customhouse party" of this State and those who follow Greeley and teuton, la Louisiana the case is different. There the "Customhouse party " has attempted to gain control of the State Convention, and to that end it has employed United States troops. That such a course has been sanctioned at Long Branch we do not believe: and w ben the President hears all the tacts in the case, we presume he will act the part of an honorable and sensible man, even if has to remove all the federal office holders in New Orleans. Our New Orleans exchanges come to u* filled with accounts of the late difficulty iu that city. The story is a short one. Col lector James P. Casey, of New Orleans, and the other officeholders in that city, deter mined to ruu the State Convention. To that end they seat circulars all over the State, and announced that the convention would be held m the Customhouse. No one was to be admitted who did not first get a ticket of S. B. Packard, United States Marshal. The Republicans of Louisiana, under the lead of Governor Warmoth, accepted these conditions, and, provided with tickets, went to the Customhouse on the day designated, tor the purpose of holding the convention. They found the building barricadeu, uarded with armed deputy marshals anil filled with United States soldiers. The regularly chosen delegates to the conven tion were denied admittance to the Custom house, aud after a short consultation they adjourned to Turner Hall, and held the con vention. The Republicans of New Orleans were much excited over this affair, aud, taking the horses from Governor Warmoth's car riage, they drew him to the hall. A dense mass of people filled the hall, cheering the United States flag and singing "John Brown. Governor Warmoth made a speech, iu which be said : "It has been our boast, up to this time, and our pride, that the army of the United States bus nothing to do with the election of candidates, or the control of the people when they assemble in public convention. This is the first instance iu the record of our great republic when it has been otherwise." "May we hope." the Gov ernor added, "that this conduct has been without the knowledge of President Grant. , I am disposed to say and believe there is no 1 doubt of it. h it shall go to the people that he has sanctioned this, the American people ■n.;n i, 1 I will repudiate him. Judge H. C. Dibble made a speech, in which he said: "When I leave this convention I shall go straight to Washington, and shall ask .President Grant as a soldier whether he gave his sanction to the action that has been taken here to-day. If he says yea, then I will denounce him throuffh every city in- the land. If he says nay, then I shall say, 'Prove your sincerity, sir, by striking off the heads of these men.' 1 shall not believe he is sincere uuiil Packard, Casey and Loweil are removed." This is the exact state of affairs in the Republican party of Louisiana, and the President must take sides with one faction or the other. If he sustains the Custom house party, he loses Governor Warmeth and his supporters; if he sustains Governor Warmoth, he must remove the present federal officers in New Orleans. The on!y sure, way in all such cases is to leave tire people to themselves, and give officeholders to understand that they have other work to do than meddling iu 'politics. Until this plau is adopted wo shall never have harmony. harmony. (From tbe Cincianati Gazette.] the military convention in Louisiana. Hie United States Marshal of Louisiana, 8. B. Packard, has addressed a note to the New -York Tribune correcting the report that he said that President Grant hau au thorized the use of the Customhouse for the State Convention, aud the bringing in of troops to guard it. The marshal assumes the responsibility tor the act. No friend of the President wiil assume that he gave any warrant for this proceeding, which has placed a weapon iu the bauds of the opposi tion to revive their warfare upon the Ku KJux bill, which was iu a decline because ot the evidence both of the need an«l bene ficial influence of that bill. The marshal states that he made a requisi tion on the military commissioner for troops to protect the public property. An officer of the United Slates government, who calls for troops to keep the doorway of a politi cal convention, has the effrontery to write to a public journal that it was merely to protect the public property in the Custom house. By this unfortunate statement the mar shal has made a had impression of his own character. Honorable men who resort to the arbitrary proceeding of calling in the army to help them manage a political con vention, do not felale that it was only to protect the public property. The unfortu nate marshal goes on lo expose the false hood of this pretense by charging that if tho convention had not been held in the Customhouse, under guard, there would have been a disturbance in it. But we have not come to the time when the army is to be called in to prevent a disturbance in a political convention. When a riot has broken out, which the local authorities can not control, then it will be time for the army to he called in. The circumstances are that there are two factions in the Republican partv of Louisi ana, one led by the State oiiicials, the other by the United States officials. The policy of the latter is to charge, with everything else that is bad, that the Governor W»r moth party is opposed to the re-election of i. They Grant. They seem to have supposed that this is equivalent to a charge ot treason, and that it gave them the right to call in the army on their side. The national office holders' faction had tbe State Central Com mittee. They called a convention without designating any ulaee or any rules. It is staled that the Wannoth party carried a majority of the delegates, and that upon this the committee gave notice, a day or two before tbe meeting, that tbe convention would be held at the United States court room, in the Customhouse building, and that tickets would be issued to the qualified delegates at the pustotiiee, and that none but ticket holders would be admitted. This will appear rather strong practice in this latitude, but on the morning of the day three companies of tbe Nineteenth In fantry were marched to the Customhouse and placed on guard ; besides, a large num ber of deputy marshals, said to be two hun dred, had been sworn in. Governor War moth, who was a delegate, aud the dele gates on his side, heldacouu.il and resolved to present themselves at tho convention. The governor attempted to make some re marks on the military aspect of affairs, pre vious to the organization, was checked by a military officer, and wirir his friends, with drew from the building, held a meeting, and appointed another convention for next day, which was accordingly held. We suppose these government officials cause; but they spoiled it. Probably tbev violated no law by calling troops and en listing deputy marshals on territory exclu sively within tbe United States jurisdiction, under pretense of protecting public p'rop erty; but it was no place lor a State polit ical convention, and no delegate should have gone there. The action of a so-called Republican State convention, held in a United States building, and guarded against Republicans by United States troops, will not be thought valid. And this military supervision of nominations suggests the same supervision of elections. If the polit ical situation of Louisiana is such that it is necessary to supersede the ordinary political machinery by the power of the national government, it should be done by due legis lation. The New York Herald, in discussing Louisiana affairs, says: Considering the high-handed doings of the Customhouse clique of managers against the Warmoth gang at the late New Orleans Republican convention, we are not surprised that General Grant is of the opinion that the Customhouse chaps carried their joke a little too far in the employment of soldiers to keep out of fhe convention the Warmoth faction, and that he has re solved to rectify the blunder thus com mitted by a walking ticket to the blunder ers directly responsible. JFroin the St. James Sentinel.J THE TWO CONVENTIONS. For the past ten days we have been in New Orleans, carefully watching political events, and we now propose to give the readers of the Sentinel a faithful account of the circumstances which led to the holding of two conventions—one mtho United Staten Customhouse, the other at Turner Hall— both claiming to be the proper representa tive of the Republican party of the State. At the eleventh hour, the State Central Committee, or a majority of them, desig nated the United States Customhouse as the place of meeting for the Convention, and delegates were instructed to send their cre dentials to United States Marshal S. B. Packard, President of the committee, and also notified that they would be required to procure tickets of admission, signed by that gentleman, before being allowed admittance to the ball m which the oonven ion was to assemble. Mr. Packard advertised the money order office of the postal department as the place from which these tickets would be issued, but when a crowd of delegates had gathered there, Post master Lowell make his appearance and ordered them out, saying th.t Mr. Packard had no authority to use that, office, but he would hand the-tickets out through the window. Thei disgraceful scene Which followed has been fitly described in a com munication from Hon. Emerson Benfcley to the New Orleans Republican. Delegates were obliged to climb up the granite wall aud cling with one hand to the window sill while receiving their tickets with the other. Men who derived additional dignity and were entitled to additional respect from the fact of being representatives of the people, were thus humiliated ill the principal thor oughfare of New Orleans by being made to appear as a crowd of school boys climbing op the sides of the treasurer's wagon to receive tickets of admission to a circus. In the first place, the "ticket sys tem'' was an absurditv, and the mannerin which it was carried out an insult to the delegates. It seems that the delegates opposed to i Governor Warniotu and his administration , 1 - la ' 1 Sphered in caucus at the Custom uo,lse I >reviou8 to the hour fixed for the «*e«ihling of the convention, and when the I Governor and a large number of delegates friendly to himself arrived at the place about eleven o'clock, they found the doors closed and barred, and were denied admit tance until the hour of twelve o'clock should arrive. To say the least, this was an act of gross discourtesy on the part of the Customhouse men—an act lor which we can find no precedent. But the crowning indignity remains to be told. Drawn up in the rotunda of tho building were three companies of United States soldiers, with arms stacked ready for use. and inter spersed among the crowd were several hundred deputy marshals, ail wearing badges, and most of them armed with re volvers. Tbe mere presence of these soldiers was an insult to Governor Warmoth and his friends which we can not and will not coun tenance. We asked only forfair play, little expecting that the verv men whom we were disposed to regard as desirous of according it would seek to intimidate their opponents by securing the presence of armed United States soldiers at a State convention. The Governor made a short but vigorous ad dress to bis followers, proposing an adjourn ment to Turner Hall. at the -c inclusion of which he and his friends were crowded down the steps to the street by a press of tbe crowd of deputy marshals from within the building. The Governor entered bis carriage, and an enthusiastic crowd gath ered around it, unhitching the horses, and drawing the vehicle to "tbe Turner Hall, amid a continual din of deafening shouts and cheers. Arrived at the ball in question, a convention was organized in tbe fhe usual manner, as we related last week, officers elected, a State Central and Congressional Committee chosen, resolutions draited and unanimously adopted, an address to the Republicans of tbe State prepared, etc. The. Customhouse convention was condaclcd in a secret manner, only such persons as held tickets from the United States Marshal being al lowed admittance to the hail, and the en trances being closely guarded by troops and deputy marshals. The usual business ot the Customhouse was hindered and ob structed, merchants and shipmastershaving great difficulty in enteriug to secure neces sary papers and attend to matters connected with the collection of port customs. This convention finished its business in one day, and ajourned sine die, its leaders fearing, perhaps, that if tho delegates were allowed to leave the building before the labors were completed, many of them would not return, but would repudiate tbe affair and fraternize with the Governor's sup porters. Iu decided and damaging contrast to the Customhouse gathering, was tbe Turner Hall convention, the sessions of which were held in a spacious hall, with all the en trances thrown open; free admission granted to everybody, and no guards of deputy mar shals, police, or United States soldiers visi ble. The convention held two sessions, and the attendance of delegates was larger, and the proceedings more enthusiastic on the second day than on the find. A very significant fact to be taken into consideration is this: That out of twenty five delegates elected to the State conven tion whose seats were not contested, twenty-four went to the Turner Hall con vention, while but one remained at the Customhouse, and that, one afterward signed a protest against the doings ot the latter assemblage. We have endeavored in the foregoing ar ticle to give a faithful narrative of events *s they actually occurred, and we leave our readers to draw their own conclusions. \\ e are not of the bigoted order ot men who can excuse any manner of outrage because committed by party leaders whom we have heretofore supported, anil we do not deem it an inconsistency to change our course when passing events prove us to have been wrong and our opponents to be right. Military High School.—A s will he seen upon reference to a card published in an other column, the able and accomplished principals of this highly popular and ex cellent institution will prepare pupils to enter the Louisiana University and other colleges by the course of studies in their school, and have also attached a commer cial and primary department for the com ing year. We take great pride in commend ing the Military High Sebool as one of our very best institutions of learning, and in advising parents and guardians to patron ize it. a A meeting was held yesterday in the Mayor's parlor for the purpose of consider* ing the proposition to bring all suits for city taxes to the Fourth and Eighth District Courts. Mayor Flanders and Administrators Remick, Delassize, Shaw, Walton and Copkrem were present. Mr. W. R. Whitaker appeared as attorney for the clerks of the Fourth and Eighth District Courts, and another legal gentle man appeared for the clerks of the other district courts, among whom were present, Mr. William Wool per, of the sixth, Colonel Louis Power, of the fifth, and Captain Daniel C. Byerly, of the tbirtl. Mr. A. D. Bernoudy, who presides so gracefully and paternally over the records of the seventh, did not make his appearance; nor was the the jolly countenance of Major Tracy, of the second, made visible in the festive throng. Much legal lore was ventilated by the attorneys; the contesting clerks aired their vocabulary for the enlightenment of the Administrators, and the conclusion was that the settlement of the question should be left with the Administrators. Mr. John S Walton has heretofore decided in favor of bringing all tax suits in the Fourth and Eighth District courts. The Administrator of Assessments, Mr Bonzano, has gone on a visit to Bladon Springs, Alabama, and during his absence Mr. Remick, Administrator of Commerce, has been appointed to take charge of the Department of A ssessmente. The improvement bon,ds, engraved in New York, have arrived, and it is said that the contractors for paving St. Charles ave nue will be paid in these bonds for the work already done, and that the laying of the remaining blocks contemplated by the contract, entered into by the Southern Paving Company, will shortly be com menced. If the city administrators will'authorize the contractors to use Thomas' wood pre serving process, by which timber can be made to last a quarter of a century, instead of making the blocks of green cypress, the city will be spared the expense and incon venience of having a Nicolson pavement that rots and wears into unsightly holes in a year's time. The City Council has determined to fur nish tbe necessary lines to enable the Ciry Railroad Company to lay a new track on both sides of Canal street. The contractor promises to commence the work this morn ing. and complete it within a month. The lines are said to be parallel to the old tracks now laid on plank and along the neutral ground. The road beds will be about eight feet on either side from the old tracks, and vehicles driven on the shell roads will have ample room to go it at a two-forty lick, if the trollers of the ribbons prefer that rate of locomotion. The Administrator of Police, Colonel Lewis, will shortly have hia attention called to certain alleged outrages at the Bovs House of Refuge. Parties around the City Hall, yesterday, stated it to be a fact that the inhuman cruelties reported as practiced on the boys, are not only true so l'ar as related, but that the statements fall short of the whole truth. The matter Should provoke inquiry, and will receive our further atten tion. . Caleaaiea Sulphur Mine-. A\able telegram was received here yester day, by the secretary, from the agen* of the Calcasieu Sulphur and Mining Company, at Paris, stating that the machinery and east ings for the company's works will be shipped from Calais the last of this month, and that the chief engineer, Mr. A. Granot, left on the steamer Lafayette, the eighteenth instant, for New York, on his return to the mines in Calcasieu parish. Arthur Gueriu. At eleven o'clock last night, a messenger was sent to Recorder Leclere, to cotue and take the dying declaration of Arthur Giterin, who was shot in self-defense by Deputy Sheriff Houston, recently, while the deputy was obeying an order of the court, to re move Guerin from the criminal court room. Recorder Leclere took the declaration, hut the contents were not made known at the hour of going to press.

Tbe speech was read by the Lord Chan cellor. as oue of the members of the royal commission. The following is a verbatim copy : My Lords and Gentlemen—The time has now arrived when I am enabled to release yon from your attendance in parliament, and to commend your unwearied labors for the public good. I acknowledge, with satisfac tion, the loyal readiness with which you have made provisions for my beloved child ren, the Princess Louise and Prince Arthur. The great events and important changes, Vhicli have recently occurred on the conti nent ol Europe, will not compromise the friendly relations existing between the crown of the United Kingdom and foreign powers. Whatever part I may take in those international questions, which from time to time may arise, will contiuuo to be taken with no other view than tho maintenance of general concord and public rights. The conference, which was sitting in London at the commencement of tho session. w*as joined during its deliberations by the French plenipotentiary, aud it con sidered aud agreed upon the revision of those stipulations of the treaty of 1856, which c-mcerne-l the Black Sea and Bos phorus. I trust the unanimous decision left the powers, which lias been recorded in the new treaty, may assist in securing the tranquillity and welfare of the East. With special satisiaction I reler on the present oecasiqn to our relations with the United States, by the treaty of Washington. The modes of settlement have been fixed for several questions which have long remained in dispute, my communication with the American government not being without the promised advantage to other countries. The President has concurred with me in the application of that principle of amicable reference which is proclaimed by the treaty of Paris, which I rejoice to have the opportunity of recommending by example; and we have also agreed on the adoption of certain rules for guiding the maritime conduct of neutrals, which may, I trust, ere long, obtain general recognition, and form a valuable auditiou to the code of international law. I place full reliance upon the disposition of the Americans to carry forward with cor diality, and see that the subsidary arrange ments which have been determined on for tLe execution of the treaty shall be faith fully carried out. I shall apprize fhe Parliament of Canada that the provisions which require its consent are, in my view, highly conducive to the in terests of the dominion. On these pro visions, however, that Parliament will pass independent and final judgment. The government of France has signified a desire to alter some of the provisions of tho commercial treaty of 1860, which are now terminable upou a notice ot twelve months by either of the contracting States. I am anxious to meet the wishes of a friendly power, and to give scope for any measures calculated to meet the fiscal exigencies, but I should witness with concern any change of a nature to restrict commercial inter course between the two countries, which has done so much for their closer union. Gentlemen of the House of Commons: I thank you for the liberal supplies which, under tho circumstances of the year, I directed my government to ask from you; and for the sum of money you have voted in order to meet the charge and compensa tions re quired by the abolition of the system of purchase in the army. My Lords and Gentlemen, I observe, with concern, that you have not been able to bring to a definite issue tbe treatment of some of the subjects which I recommended to you in my speech from the throne at the opening of the session;' but several impor tant laws have been added to the statute book. By the army regulation bill you liavo made a liberal provision for those officers who; on retirement, will no longer be per mitted to sell their commissions to their successors, and by transferring to tho ex ecutive government the powers in respect to the auxiliary forces, which hitherto have been vested in the lord lieutenants of coun tries. you have laid the foundation for measures calculated to effect a closer union among the various land forces of the kingdom. The act by which, after full examination of the facts, you conferred extraordinary powers on the Viceroy of Ireland for the repression of the agrarian outrages in West meath, has thus far answered its purpose, liipre is every likelihood that for a long time to come the great and varied interest of the united kingdoms of the empire at large, together with the extending demand of modern society, may prevent any lighten ing of the honorable legislation. The condition of the revenue, the revived activity in trade, and the prospects of the harvest, are subjects for congratulation. I trust these, and all the other bounties of Providence, will ever meet with fitting ac knowledgement on the part of a grateful people. At the conclusion of the Queen's speech, the Lord Chancellor declared the adjourn ment of the session of Parliament until No vember 7, and the members soon after de parted. PARIS.
