Looks Queer. —Last evening the police
arrested a queer looking specimen ol
humanity in the first precinct for hav
ing invaded the premises of an un
willing citizen. When taken to the sta
tionhuuse, a pistol was found on Lim^
him, and he gave Lis name as Joseph De
lgir. • llis head and hair have been badly
singed, and bis manner indicates that his
senses are not entirely sound.
A Mean Commencement.— Friday night
there was the usual commotion and hurry
ing to close the fair in Odd Fellows' Hall.
Two lads, Daniel Gallagher and Henry
Ilamel, having passed a portion of the
night in the hall, made observations, and,
noticing a cash box and a gold watch,
broke one of the ten commandments by
coveting these articles. When an oppor
tunity presented itself one of the young
sters slipped the boxes away, and the
things were not missed until midnight. In'
formation was sent to police headquarters,
and an officer detailed to hunt up the
young rascals. They were captured iu
Magazine market, and a portion of the
money found on one of them. The box was
broken and left in tbe street. It is hoped
that these lads will be able .to show that
they are not the principals in this mean
theft—robbing charity patients.
One of the noble army of wife beaters,
^ Francois Bernard, when before Recorder
t Houghton yesterday did not look much like
f a natural nobleman. He will be urged to

Conversation. —A gentleman, sitting be
hind a green curtain which hides the rear
portion of a money broker's office lrorn the
front room, recently heard a conversation
not unlike the following:
Applicant, with a sad face—WLat are you
paying for appropriation certificates 1
& Broker—Between eighty and ninety cents
according to size.
The applicant uttered a sound, the echo
of which smacked somewhat like a Parish
Prison oath.
Applicant—My patience is sorely tried. I
Pam compelled to wait aud wait for m.» cer
|ifieates, and dance attendance at .he
.-Mayor's office, urging that official to ap
prove my accounts long after they -are
readv for his signature* Before I have ob
tained them, my deputies ask for their sal
aries, which I must pay in full in currency.
During the delay, I am compel leu to hire
money from you gentlemen, that my em
ployes and merchants shall be satisfied.
Then, when I sell my tardy certificates I
lose ten or twenty cents on the dollar. The
two 'losses leave no profits, and nearly
|'■•raze me. Some members ol our City
iCouncil are aware of these facts, and make
|good efforts to assist me, but there is a de
Jay somewhere, which makes my pocket
liook look as though an elephant had s.ept
ron it for a month
Just then another customer appeared,
swearing "like our troops iu Flanders,
ny not dissimilar from toe
ceed to furnish the court with "a list of all
persons liable to jury duty residing within
the limits of the parish of Orleans," in com
pliance with section 2144 of act No. 96 of
the General Assembly of the State ol
Louisiana, approved March 14, 1870.
Judge Abell, in overruling the motion of
the District Attorney, said: This motion
must be overruled. The. motion is made
under an act of the General Assembly, ap
proved the fifteenth of March, 1855, re-en
acted on the fourteenth of March, 1870,
without the change of a word.
The first section of the act prescribes the
qualification of jurors, and is sacramental.
But that part of the act that requires the
Sheriff to furnish a list, etc., is directory,
and it is very clear from context that the
law meant the following December after
tbe passage of the act, and after a list fur
nished at that time they were to be con
The fourth section of the act declares
"That no person shall serve a second term
on the jury until all the names have been
drawn from the box; and whenever the box
shall have been emptied the Sheriff shall re
turn all the names on the j ury list into the
jury box, and commence a new drawing."
The bail in the case of Edward Donnelly,
charged and convicted of the murder of
Dennis Callahan (Kelly), on the twenty
seventh of September, 1870, at the corner of
St. Andrew aud Laurel streets—who es
caped the sentence of the law by tbe merest
accident, one of the jurors serving at the
trial, an old man, having served under the
name of his son, and signed the verdict as
foreman, on which point Donnelly of course
was granted a new trial-was yesterday
fixed by Judge Abell at $10,000.
The Attorney General, in consequence of
tbe horrible features of the ease, opposed
the release on bonds, but Judge Abell de
cided that under the law Donnelly, who had
been imprisoned during several terms of this
court, without having a trial, was entitled
to bail. He overruled the objections of At
torney General BeUlen, and fixed the bail
in the above amount.
Constantine Rosario, the mate of the
Italian bark Pagannini, arrested as a wit
ness in a stabbing affair on board the bark,
and who happened to have a pistol about
him when brought to the station, was
charged with carrying concealed weapons.
He being sent to this court, pleaded guiity
and paid a fine of $5.
In the ease of John Dwyer, convicted of
manslaughter, on the charge of murdering
Dennis McElhany, in Greenville, on the
twentieth of September. 1870, the board of
physicians intrusted with the examination
of the mental condition of Dwyer have re
ported. Dr. B. Weffelsburgh declare s that
from observations during attendance on
Dwyer, he thinks him subject to fits of in
sanity, while Drs. Boyer and Lewis declare
that his fits of epilepsy have not impaired
his mental faculties to such a degree as to
lead them to decide that lie is insane. The
case was continued after tbe plea of insanity
had been argued.
Mr. Planeliard argued the motion to ad
mit William Watny to bail, charged with
the murder of Gottfried Bass, who was as
sassiuated on the seventh of October, while
leaving a house at the corner of Rampart
and Congress streets.
St. Charles Avenue.—' This is the drive
par excellence from Tivoli circle to Carroll
ton—the most direct, aud the most beautiful
as regards the residences on each side.
Strangers visiting the city are usually taken
through it in order that they may witness
the evidences of wealth and ta>te which
those residences and the grounds surround
ing them afford. An unpleasant, almost a
dangerous incident occurred recently on
such an occasion. A gentleman just arrived
lrorn St. Louis, who had never visited New
(irleans before, was invited by a friend to
drive out to Carrollton. They had a light
buggy and a fast horse, tin- day was lovely
aud their spirits high. Riding along St.
Charles street, talking and laughing and
admiring the houses on each side, they did
not take much notice of the road until they
reached that remarkable portion of good
driving, the three squares of new Nicolson
pavement. Here the proud citizen
of our proud city indiscreetly let
his fast pacer put oa his fastest paces. It
was delightful fora second: but. alas, three
squares pass quickly under the feet ol a
fast horse, and soon our gay friends found
themselves bumping along over ruts and
holes, in a manner anything but pleasant.
"Is this your best drive?" gasped out the
well-churned guest.
"It is our only one in this direction,' -
pleaded the citizen of New Orleans, in a
deprecatory tone. "It used to be a very
fine road once, but it certainly needs re
pairing now."
"All," said the visitor, "liow I wish I had
visited New Orleans when this old road
was new. But do they Dever repair their
roads in your city ? Have the city officials
no efficiency, that they leave your chief
streets in such a wretched condition ?'
"Well, to tell the truth, the Administra
tor of Public Improvements, whose duty it
is to attend to this matter, is ready to do
his part, but he can not act without the
co-operation of the other members of the
city government. And as there is to be an
election next November, and they desire to
be re-elected, tbr-y are trying to get up a
reputation for economy;"
" Very bad economy," ejaculated the
visitor, jerking out his words as the light
buggy went bobbing up and down, "very
poor economy to risk people'—" here the
light buggy succumbed to the vile condi
tion of the road, the wheel coming in col
lision with one of the evidences of official
economy which diversified its surface-,
fairly gave way, and our two friends found
themselves brought with unpleasant, sud
denness iu contact with the "old ?.iicoiso:i
Fortunately their injuries wore not very
serious, though sufficiently r .-o to keep them
lrorn taking a pleasure ride on the main
thoroughfare of the First, Fourth and
Sixth Districts of our -itr for some time to
The visitor from Louis expects to
start for Lome as soon as his bruises are
well: and takes with him a very low esti
mate of that penny wise pound foolish
economy which leaves the chiei drive ot
a grand city iu such a condition as that o?
St. Charles avenue.

has been sentenced by Judge Pardee to fi ve

The Case of Peter Donnelly .—The
examination into the causes of the death of
the car driver, Peter Donnelly, is to be re
sumed Tuesday next. The latest theory iu
connection with the sad tragedy is that the
various injuries which caused his death were
received from a fall from a window in the
second story of the building. Theie are
circumstances which sustain this view that
will be probably more fully elucidated at
the examination. It is known already that
deceased retired to his room under the in -
flue.nce of liquor, and there is no evidence
of any unpleasantness toward him on the
part of any one.
The Southern Paving Company has em
ployed. or is allowing, three or four men to

Nicolson pavement on St. Charles street. It
will take about ten years to complete the
job at the present rate of progress.
Carrollton Items. —The Council has is

For reasons given, the Carondclet Street
and Carrollton City Railroad Company was
granted an extension of time—one year—to
complete its contract. The route has been
changed, to he as follows:
Single track on Levee street from Jeffer

Hampson street, down Ilampson street to
Lowerline street, from Hampson street on

to read thus: Single track on Levee street
from Jefferson to First or St. Charles street,
down First or St. Charles street to Dublin
street, on Dublin street to Hampson street,
down Hampson street to Lowerline street,
from Hampson on Lowerline street to Sec
ond street.
There is a movement iu progress to have
the city charter amended.
Balls Last Night.— Managers of the
Sports' Social Club made Eagle Hall
brilliant on the occasion of their fourth
masquerade. Stylishly attired ladies danced
until they were quite content. The mem
bers are certainly well up iu their duties.
Orient Lodge No. 46,1. O. O. F., gave its
many friends a pleasant party in Carroll
Hall. All who attended passed a happy
time indeed. Third District belles were
out in a blaze of beauty aud refinement,
and the beaus were all attention.
Independence Lodge of Odd Fellows
made an elegant party in Odd Fellows'
Hall. Masking was in vogue before mid
n : ght. making tbe ladies more bewitching
than ever, Nearly all the toilets were
splendid and iu excellent taste. Several
characters were well sustained." The man
agers deserve prai-e for their energy ami
good system.
Fire this Morning. —The alarm of tire
between twelve and one o'clock this morn
ing was occasioned by the partial burning
of a feed store at the corner of Triton walk
and the New Basin.
In the case of W. II. Peterson, no more
evidence being obtained, the jury was una
ble to determine if the deceased was shot
at the corner of St. Ann and St. Claude
streets, while in the act of committing a
burglary, or if he, as the statements of
others are, was accidentally shot. The jury
rendered a verdict that he died of internal
hemorrhage, caused by a gunshot wound
which he received ou the night of Novem
ber 15, at a place anil from persons un
known to the jury.
The Holiday Number of Scribner's.
The publishers of Scribner's promised
that tbe Monthly for January should be a
"grand holiday" number—the handsomest
number, indeed, of a magazine ever printed
iu America. We think they have fulfilled
their promise. The first picture, by T.
Moran—one of the illustrations of Bayard
Taylor's ballad from the German—is a finer
picture, in both design and engraving, than
we have been used to look for in periodi
cals: the illustrations of "The Big Trees
and the Yosemite"—a piquant and graphic
paper by Mr. Bromley—constitute probably
the best series of the kind ever prepared for
an American magazine. The number has a
fine Christmas llavor throughout. The
poems by Bayard Taylor (after Rueekert),
Christina Rossetti, H. H.. and Mrs. Whit
ney. form a memorable Christmas garland
of verse: then there is "The Oak Tree's
Christmas Gift," by young Hawthorne; a
burlesque Christmas story by Frank I{.
Stoektou. with capital illustrations, a new
Wonder Story by Hans Christian Andersen;
anil an amusing page of "Etchings," by
Sheppard, giving characteristic Christmas
scenes in " Ole Virginny." Among
other interesting features of this num
ber are the very promising opening
chapters of Mrs. Olipbant's now serial,
'•At His Gates:" a story by Joaquin Miller,
entitled "The Last Man of Mexican Camp:' -
a delightful sketch of "A Day of Scottish
Games" iu Rhode Island, by Colonel Ilig
ginson: a trenchant article by Rev. George
B. Bacon, on " Some Kinds of Spiritual
Quackery;" graphic selections, with striking
illustrations, from Lieutenant Colonel (Jor
don Cumming's " Wild Men and Wild
Beasts;" a portion of the forthcoming vol
ume of Bryant's "Homer," and a graceful
little poem try Harriet McEwen Kimball.
Dr. Holland, in "Topics of the Time," lias
some earnest words on "Sliakerisin," aud
"The Faults of Culture." "The Oi,d Cabi
net" contains "A Face," a " Letter to a
Young Writer," and " A Christmas
Thought." "Home and Society" treats of
"Christmas Greenery," " Twelfth Night."
and "The Clothes of the Period.;'" while m
" Culture and Progress at Home " and
"Abroad" arc discussions of "International
Copyright," "The Opera." "Charlotte Cush
inau." "New Books," etc.
A series of articles on "The Wonders of
the West" is promised, tiic first (on the Yo
semite) appearing in January. The Feb
ruary number will have another story by
Saxo Holm, author oi "Esther \\ ynn s
Love Letters," and other features of im
portance. Although the January Scribner's
contain more and better pictures than any
number yet issued, the publishers promise
that there will be no tailing off iu pictorial
interest in February.
Strni«ht University.
This school, located <>n the corner of Es
planade and Derbigny streets, begins its
second session next Wednesday. \\ ith a
full corps of experienced and successful
teachers, and all the appliances in the way
of charts, maps, globes, boards, etc., neces
sary for illustration and explanation, which
are found here, the facilities for obtaining a
thorough education, always good, were
never better than now, and guardians of
children are assured that no pains will be
spared for th" improvement of those placed
Extensive additions Lave recently been
made to the gymnasium, affording both
amusement aud profitable exercise to
the students.
The classes in higher mathematics and
classics will be continued as heretofore.
Pupils desiring to enter here should he
present the first day of the term.
And now* comes the close of the week and
the year, with its accounts to be settled, its
debts to be paid, its new leaf to be turned
over. If the old adage that " a man in debt
at the beginning will find himself in debt
throughout the year" be true, few men on
Carondclet street can be calculated upon as
clear. The prevailing dullness has driven
all but the brokers absolute oft' from the
corners and into some other business. The
broker absolute is one who can get along
without help ; who lives while others die,
and who is as firm in dull as iu any other
times. The negotiation of city certificates
did afford a temporary relief, but the gains
are very small at the best. Stocks are of
fered on all sides, but no bidders come up.
It is ruinous to put up any obligations of
this hind unless the holders are not particu'
lar about a loss of twenty-five per cent.
Tbe sole topic on the street yesterday was
the discussion of the sale of Slaughterhouse
at $14 50 at auction. It was reported the
stock was not delivered. At any rate,
$17 50 was offeied on the street. The com
pany is in just as prosperous a state, and is,
in fact, in a better condition than for some
time. Its legal bonds will soon slip off, and
the company go straight ahead. Y'et the
scarcity of money has produced the same
downfall in this as in other stocks. Where
no disposition to buy prevails every obliga
tion must settle.
The difficulty iu money Las also affected
the passing of foreign exchange by sym
pathy, and this last trouble still continues
to hinder the movement in cotton, inas
much as bargains eau not be consummated.
The hanks declaring their dividends yes
terday produced a comfortable feeling in
those who held the stocks. As it had been
long anticipated, there was not more than
the ordinary momentum on the spreading of
the news, bunk stocks being among the
things in which the run of brokers are not
much interested.
Cotton has been somewhat atiected at
last by the negotiations oi exchange, but
to a slight extent. It is a business now
upon w hich tl.e whole community relies to
rescue us from our embarrassments.
St. Charles Theatre.
The "East Lynne" matinee yesterday was

Tivoli Circle.
Under the canvas there were crowds ot
people, oid and young, large and small,
both at the matinee and tlie exhibition last
evening. John Robinson's circus, museum,
menagerie and caravan tents are now folded,
and the destination of This grand three-tent
show is Cincinnati. The proprietor has
taken in a large amount of money, but lias
disbursed a hundred dollars a day to the
citv for the use of Tivoli circle lot.
W e are happy to inform tiie merchants of
our city that Messrs. Lawrence A Wright
are about starting a much needed sheet, the
View Orleans and Southwestern Advertiser.
These gentlemen are both Liverpool men,
aud we are well assured will do great credit
to their native city. Mr. Lawrence lias had
a ripe experience in Chicago. They are
both well acquainted with the district sur
rounding our State, the trade of which this
city ought and will command by a little
effort ou ^he part of our merchants in
patronising their paper. Tiiey inform us that
their paper xv ill be i-sued gratuitously, and
sent only to business houses of good stand
ing and hotels throughout the following:
South, East and Northeastern Texas; South
ern Arkansas, covering the Red River and
Ouachita countries: Mississippi, including
Mobile: also Louisiana (New Orleans and
neighborhood excepted). They have opened
an office at No. 22 Commercial place.
.Military Power.
The power of the sword i« mhre sensibly
felt in an extensive monarchy than in a
small community. It lias been calculated
by tbe ablest politicians that no state, with
out being soon exhausted, can maintain
above the hundredth part of its members in
arms and idleness. But, although this rela
tive proportion may be uniform, ti e inllu
ence of the army over the rest of society
will vary according to tbe degree of its posi
tive strength. The advantages of military
science and discipline cannot be exerted
unless a proper number of soldiers are
united in one body and actuated by one
sou!. With a handful of men, such a union
would be ineffectual; with an unwieldy host
it would be impracticable: and the powers
of the machine would alike be destroyed by
the extreme minuteness or the excessive
weight ot its springs. To illustrate this ob
serva'ion we need only reflect: there is no
superiority of natural strength, artificial
weapons or acquired skill could enable one
man to keep in constant subjection one hun
dred of ids fellow creatures: the tyrant of a
single town or a small district would soon
discover that a hundred armed followets
were a weak defense against ten thousand
peasants or citizens: hut a hundred thou
sand well disciplined soldiers will command,
with despotic sway, t -u millions of subjects:
and a body of ten or fifteen thousand guards
will strike terror into the most numerous
populace that ever crowded the streets of an
immense capital.— Gibbon's Decline and
Fall. Cha/dcr U.
Tiie Picayune reports the following ease,
involving specie obligations:
Suit was recently brought in the parish
court of Bienville on a note for $-00, to iie
paid some time after date, in specie or its
equivalent in currency. The court recog
nized the validity of the contract, and
gave judgment for plaintiff. It was held
that tLffi obligation sued on being for so
many dollars in specie, or its equivalent in
currency, not for specie alone, was not in
contravention of tbe legal tender act. That
act was a measure of public policy, not a
law to confer privileges upon debtors, aud
