Not many days ago a child was very sick, and last week au parently expired. A certiiicate was fur. nished by a physician, and the family friends followed to a cemetery. Just when the grave was to be closed, the child raised its voice, crying pitifully. The mourning mother's sorrow was suddenly changed to the w.blest joy. With a natural impulse she grasped her dariing, and ran home in a state ot mind bordering on iusauity, leaving the funeral to seek a solution for itself. Not less than forty persons witnessed this unu sual proceeding, and many of them were inquisitive as to the doctor who gave the certificate that death had claimed the child. We shall endeavor to learn his name and standing. Such things may happen ocea sinally. but people lose faith in the abilities of such a physician. Arthur Guerin's Dying Declaration.— An announcement in yesterday's liEPCB Lie an that Recorder Leclere had been called in to take a dying declaration, told that death was approaching. At eleven o'clock, Monday night, the recorder visited the house in response to a call, and took the following : New Orleans. La.. August 21,1371.) 11:30 P. SI. i I. Arthur Guerin, lying on my death bed. on Love street, between Clouet and Monte gut streets, being aware of my approaching death, and having received the last sacra ments of the church, do make this, my dying declaration: I was shot by one man named Houston, employed iu the First District Court. He shot me for nothing at all, and I did not have a word with him. I did not know how many shots he fired at me, but be shot me twice; he shot me when I was on the floor.' The first shot I re ceived in the arm; it paralyzed me and knocked me (town. The second shot he fired at me when I was down; I don't recol lect what Houston said to me when I was down. When down he shot me in the hack and marched on me close. I heard Daunoy say. "for God's sake don't shoot him;" that was said when I was down, and before Houston shot me in the back; I never had a previous quarrel or word with him to my knowledge. On no occasion have I ever drawn a pistol on him, or pointed it at his head. I feel to weak to sign my name: I prefer to make a cross. his ARTHUR X GUERIN, mark. This doue and written before me. the Recorder of the Third District for the city of New Orleans, in the vear, month and date named. E. V. LECLERE. Recorder Third District. Witnesses—J. B. Jourdain.

At Work — Laborers are engaged laying <new tracks on the Canal street line out to ward the ridge, from near Claiborne street. Tbe rails are to be on each side of the ditch, and the wood work over the canal is to re main as at present. For action of the City Council, see regular proceedings, published in to-day's Republican. Can't Keep Out.— The notorious Joaeph e Kay, whose peculiar eccentricities might ; termed the worst of crimes, was no oner convicted of a horrible offense an she laid herself liable to iprisonment for violating a city ordi inee, for which she was fined tweuty •e dollars. OuL of this last affair, she orked her way to prison again, on thecom bat of Catherine Moore, her next door lighbor, who swears that Jo threatened take her life, and has kept bp a constant silade of abuse for months past. Re rder Houghton exacted a bond of $L0 aux her to appear ou the thirtieth, by which ite Judge Abell will have pronounced sen nce on her, for not less than one years jprisonment, on a conviction before h.s Juu* Pro Quo.—A great lover of the od risked his reputation, liberty and life in day night, by feloniously entering the are store, No. 243 Canal street, owned J. Parra. The fellow, who did not leave card, stole about a hundred dollars worta the weed. Entrance was made through ear window. Conflagrations. —Monday night, after ven o'clock, proved a lively one for fire n. The first alarm was sent from the s residence of Captain S. W. Scott, No. Ursulines street, between Prieur and man streets. The fire was in the attic of ear building, and, as the firemen could tain little or no water, the house was lost entirely destroyed. A portion of the furniture was saved. Insured in ths Merchants . The dwelling occupied by Mr. L. Basset. No. 303 Ursulines street, was considerably damaged. He is insured in the Orleans office. Mr. L. E. Lemarie's splendid garden, adjoining, was nearly ruined. At half-past one o'clock yesterday morn ing. a fire broke out in the grocery comer Rampart aud Esplanade streets, occupied by Mrs. Gararna, and owned by the Ursu lines Convent. The building was totally destroyed. The fire spread to the two-story house adjoining, known as the Beauregard School, also owned by the Convent, which was partially destroyed. A one-story frame house, opposite the school, also ignited, but the dames were subdued betore mnch dam age was done. Mrs. Gararna was badly burned in her attempts to save her pro perty. The grocery was partially insured; the stock insured in the Hope Insurance Company. About half-past three o'clock yesterday morning a dastardly attempt was made to set tire to an unoccupied one-storv frame building, situated at the corner of Chestnut and Joseph streets, and owned by John Brady. The incendiary had placed a bundle of hay and another of rags, saturated with coal oil. under the house and ignited them. The fiames were discovered in time by Offi cer Lee to prevent damage. About the same, time, another tire was re ported at the uiilk stable, corner of Appollo and Valence streets. Loss one hundred and fifty dollars. Insurance not ascertained. An incendiary is supposed to be responsible. An Insane Suicide.— Soon after the late unpleasantness opened, Samuel Butler, au Englishman, not thirty years old, found himself iu Mobile, Alabama, where he was forced into tbe confederate army, notwith standing his nativity and disinclination. Ou the first opportunity he deserted, made his way to Missouri, where he joined the federal army, serving until peace was pro claimed. With his small savings he came down to Vicksburg, where he opened an oyster and eating house. Persons in the neighborhood, acquainted with that portion of his history spoken of above, never lost an opportunity to work on his rather sensitive feelings, warning him that unless he left the city he would surely be murdered as a de serter from the confederate army. These things annoyed him to such an ex tent that his reason began to desert him. when his miserable tormentors redoubled their persecutions. On receiving a per emptory warning, he lost all command of himself, starting off without even informing his patient wife. He walked day and nigh', as it fleeing from certain death, reaching this city iu a wretched condition. Freed from annoyances, his mind gradually as sumed something of its natural condition, when he sent for his family—wife and three young children. They came, and for several months he has applied himself rather sys tematically to daily labor. Captain Faust, a former companion in the Union army, gave him regular employment, yet the poor man's brain would occasionally grow erratic : then he would suspect everything. On one occasion, when in church, he sud denly rushed out, because, he said, three of the Vicksburg tormenters were there seek ing his life. So it was, until his senses de serted him entirely and yesterday morning he locked himself in a room, while the fam ily were at breakfast, wbeD he shot himself in the head, making a wound that brought relief in death shortly afterward. This is, indeed, a sad history, and one which should be a warning to those who think it witty to play on a man's fears. His violent death is on their heads. Coroner Creagh held an inquest, and the verdict was suicide. True Bills.— The Grand Jury returned j true bills against ex-policemen Finke. i Brown and Vankirk, and Officer Coughlin, j for a violent assault aud battery on Martin Lang. That is the second chapter in the clubbing lesson.__ _ The Knife. —About eight o'clock last evening Alfred Williams, only six years old, a driver for Stafford's meat market, was stabbed in his breast by Lewis Gass, at the corner of Old Levee and St. Peter streets. Alfred was sent to the Charity Hospital. Gass escaped. The wound is a serious one. __ Dressing.—A thief took the trouble to steal a valuable gold watch, with the chain, and a thousand dollars worth of clothing, from Mr. Tilton. No. 186 Canal street. Mon day night. The clothing is male and female apparel. Algiers Firemen.— We find on our desk a neat invitation to visit Algiers to-day, as Peiican Fire Company No. 1 will celebrate its twentieth anniversary; so it seems that company is no infant in service. Twenty years on duty is something to speak of. Mr. T. H. Jones, chief engineer of the Al gerine department, iufoftas us that the com pany will move from its engine house, cor ner of Verret and Peter streets, at half-past one o'clock P. M., hut he fails to state where the move will be to. \\ e will try to be there to see.__ A Burglar Taken.— Early yesterday morning the residence of Mr. Blanchard, on Coliseum, between F'irst and Philip streets, was entered by a thief, who stole a bundle of tine table linen and a dozen small silver spoons. The adjoining premises of Mr. J. Warner were visited by the same thief, who selected fifteen good, fat chickens, probably to grace the linen. The police being informed, kept a sharp lookout, and about five o'clock they found Henry John son sneaking out of a vacant lot in that vicinity. A command to halt was not obeyed, but a pistol shot had some effect, aud Officer Desdunes took him to prison. A search found a basket dropped by Henry, containing all the stolen articles. Recorder Billings remanded Johnson to prison. The Grand Jury circulated itself arouud town quite extensively yesterday. How slie Corner istone of the Scott Monu ment Was Laid. j In New York city, on the fifteenth instant, I after a prayer and two brief preliminary i speeches, tlie corner stone of the moiiu ! Sal statue of Sir Walter Scott waslaid as thus described by the New \ork Times. 1 "When Mr Wood had concluded, amid irreat applause. Mr. Irvin received a silver trowel from the chairman of the site, anti went down into the pit, followed by the members of the club. He then stooped down aud dipped some mortar with the trowel from a pail, and dashed it upou the bed upon which the stone was to be towered. Then Alavor Ilall threw on a trowelful ol mortar, and each member of the committee followed and did likewise, amid a most tre mendous crushing of the crowd, and re markably l'eeble attempts to keep them papers and other memorabilia of the times, was then inserted into a cavity in the top of the stone, and another stone was lowered upon it, covering the box securely. Mr. Irvin then turned to Mayor Hall and said: 'In the name of the committee, I now pre sent this statue to you, as representative of the city of New York, and give it into your charge for safekeeping.'

The Republican Party of Louisiana. We copy the following editorial from the Attaiapas Register : Strong, by repeated victories at the ballot box and in "the Legislative hall, with a plat form as broad as civil liberty itself, it will be found a not easy task to permanently divide the Republican party of Louisiana, and when to a strong organization, a well-earned prestige aud a handsome majority be added one ot the must sagacious aud successful party leaders iu the (whole South, Henry Clay Wariuoth. we have no fear for the future. A baker's dozen of federal official*, scat tering a few crumbs in the vicinity of the New Orleans Customhouse, have exerted every energy to rule—brought into requisi tion fraud and force, "eueral abuse and slander, marshals and bayonets, but they have been promptly and thoroughly repu diated. We publish to-day the proceedings of one of the most earnest and harmonious of Re publican conventions ever held in this State. Read carefully. From every part of the North a universal sympathy is expressed for the success of Governor Warmoth and the administration. With an intelligent presentation of facts to Republicans of Louisiana, no sign of division or discord will remain. Our Democratic friends, who have re joiced at the storm cloud which for a mo ment threatened us, may look well to then laurels in 1872. A Third Husband Murdered for Refusing to Pay Debt* Contracted by One of the Dear Departed. [From the Atlanta Sun.) We learn from a private letter received bv a gentleman iu Griffin, that a horrible murder was committed in Macon county last Thursday ou the person of Mr. J. Joiner, in that county, under the following circumstances: The widow of a Mr. Devereux married a Mr. Lester, and after his death married a Mr. Joiner. By her hist husband site had a son, Devereux, who, during her first and second widowhood, attended to business for her. Alter her marriage to Joiner he at tended to her business. Several notes had been presented to him signed by Devereux, which were paid; hut ou a recent occasion Mr. Joiner had declined to pay a note of considerable amount, when bis wife told him he must pay it or leave tbe plantation quickly, and threatened to leave herself if it was "not done. Mr. Joiner replied that he was iu no way responsible for the note, and would neither pay it nor leave the place, and intended to gather it. Tlie next day young Devereux came, and on the return of Mr. Joiner from the field asked for a private conversation, which was granted. Mr. Joiner repeated his deter mination not to pay the note, when Mr. Devereux rose up anil fired at him. The shot missed, when Mr. Joiner caught him and threw him out of the piazza. Mr. Joiner went to his room to get his pistol from un der the head of his bed, but it had been re moved. Y oung Devereux followed him up anil fired the second shot which struck Mr. Joiner, and then the third, which killed him. Mrs. Joiner then gathered up what money she had. gave it to her son, who fled, and is still at large. It is supposed she will be ar rested as accessory to the killing. Tlie Opelousas Journal says ol' the weather and crops: The crop prospect is about the same as it was last week. The caterpillars are still webbed up. Last Saturday and Sunday we bad no rain, aud appearances indicated a continuance of fair weather; but we have had rain here every day since up to Friday moruing, except on Wednesday, and we understand that rain fell on that day iu other parts of the parish. The weather on Friday morning, the time we write, is clear and beautiful, with a lively breeze from the north. On the 'feanic subject tbe Opelousas Courier says: It is generally believed that we are now passing through as rainy a summer as we ever had in this parish. It has rained al most daily for the last two or three months, and if the rain failed to fall in some quarter one day, the next was almost sure to bring on a double dose. The army worm has not commenced its destructive work to any serious extent that we know of, but it does exist, and pretty soon we may look for tbe destruction to commence. Certain planters, it is imped, will not suffer materially, but those wuo are back ward will certainly lose considerably. The cane looks well. The weather is yet favora ble to the crop. The corn is safe now—a middling crop— hut the fodder is almost a total loss for the want of a proper weather to dry that ex cellent fo rage. Rev. T. De Witt Talmadge says that women have a right to do ev-ei-ything which they can do well. Certainly; but if men were permitted to do only that which they do well, what a host of poor fellows would be thrown out of employment! The Terrebonne Patriot says: The weather this week has not been what was desired. The universal cry is too much ram, and the roads utterly impassible on account of the thickness ot the mud, which is, on most of the roads, more than knee deep. This is caused by the excessive rains we have had for tlie last two weeks. On Wednesday last, a shower fell ever Houma accompanied by a terrific gale. Many of our citizens state that they have not wit nessed such a gale and rain since 1856, at the. time of the Last Island storm. Notwithstanding these r..ius the crops are fine, the sugar cane particularly so. The small quantity of cotion grown in this parish is doing well. Tlie orange crop is abundant. The rains have prevented the gathering of corn fodder, but this loss will be more than amply repaid by the gain in the improvement of the sugar eane.
