' _ _ Nicolson avenue, a short distance this side of Bay 8t. Louis, extends on one side - of the Mobile railroad track to the shore, and on the other side to the woods. That part ol the avenue remote from the shore was the scene, two or three days ago, of a bloodless duel.

This is the first shipment of torn in hulk for some time, navigation with the West haviDg been suspended owing to the ice. The boats now being again able to navigate, we trust that we shall see large receipts of grain at this port. The editors of the Picayune, who, ac cording to the Times, have just emerged from caves where they have been secreting themselves for ten years, have just come up to the point iu our history where sus picions were entertained of Dunn having been poisoned. They will come to the cer tificate of Drs. Stone, Beach, Smyth and the other physicians by the middle of next week. Hurry up with your second-hand sensations.__ _ __ The Committee of Fifty-one should turn its attention to the abuses of the street car managers, who compel "the people ' to ride in crowded ears nearly the whole time from three o'clock in the afternoon till after midnight. On the Magazine street line, during the hours named, only standing room can be obtained alter the cars get up to Poydras street on Camp. The Commit tee of Fifty-one should demand that the number of cars be doubled on this road during tbe entire day aft**r three o'clock. <Ja other street railroad lines there should be reform. ___ The secret of success few have yet learned. Still, there are some who know it, and they do not hesitate to avow that fact. John Randolph, of Roanoke, it will be re membered, announced at one time that lie Lad found tbe philosopher's stone—it was -l ay as you go." Captain Gus Richards has found it, in another form—"Advertise. - He does not hide his light under a bushel, bat authorizes us to speak for him to our tens of thousands of readers, and tell them once a Week about the Orleans House, located at tho corner of Common and St. Charles streets, where the inner man may be refreshed and the spirits be cheered. Captain Gus is therefore visited by great numbers of people, who congregate there to verify our flattering notices of his estab Jishmeut. And they do wisely. REVILING THE PEOPLE. The Tinas continues to assert that the "Republican Las reviled and slandered the people of the State." The defense against this charge might be divided into two parts, the first of which would dis prove the calumny by demonstrating that the Times does not mean what it says, and the second of which would prove that the Times can not uphold its assertion even in regard to what it does meaij, because it confounds the censure of evil practices with the abuse of the people who com mit such evil practices. First, then, the Republican can not be truthfully said to have slandered the peo ple of the State, since it has never said aught iu derogation of the negroes, who constitute five-eighths of tire population. This proposition, which even the Times will admit to be correct, negatives the as sertion that we have "reviled the ( eople," aud we might content ourselves with al lowing it to sufliee lor an answer to the entire calumny if we did not feel disposed to enter into a more specific defense against the concealed slander which the Times takes frequent opportunity to discharge iu the name of "the people." V»'ken the Times charges ns with "slandering and reviling the people of the State, " it either ignorantly or maliciously misapplies terms and abuses honest crit icism in a way that sense and justice should both condemn. AVliat it means and what it says are so manifestly at variance that w r e can not decide whether its suggestion emanates from wickedness or stupidity; but we rather incline to the belief that slander may be charged to the account of malice, from the fact that it is generally accompanied by some grovelling allusion to private business matters that have no connection with the subject mat ter of its reflections. The Republican has never slandered nor reviled the i>eople of the State. It has often accused a certain class of peo ple in the State of having certain faults which they should correct; of entertain ing certain prejudices which they should eradicate, and of following certain follies which they should resist as their worst enemies. When we said to the white people three years ago that their preju dice against extending the right of suffrage to the negroes was a great %rror and a manifest evil, was that an abuse of them in their individual capacity, or was it a sound corrective of a profound mis take ? When we told them that their re sistance to the reconstruction laws would result disastrously to their own interests, was that slandering and reviling them, or was it a sound political conclusion which it would have been well for them to accept and abide by ? When we told them then, as we tell them now, that their opposition to the public school system, because it educates the colored as well as the white child, was and is very wrong, is this abuse or Is it advice ? When we say, day after day, that the Democratic party is not the organization that can benefit them the most, .is this to revile them, we should like to ask, or is it merely the expression of an honest opinion addressed directly to their judgments ? And so on throughout the long list of opinions that have divided tlie Republican from its contemporaries, ail being differences upon political ques tions as between citizens, concerning the theory upon which the government of the State should be run. Instead of reviling and slandering the people of the State, we have constantly defended them, both against themselves and against the treacherous friends who have constantly essayed to abuse them by pandering to their prejudices and errors of judgment. Aud the best evidence of this faithfulness on our part is to 1 >e found in the fact that after three years of service iu the cause of harmony and order, the white people have abandoned most of Iheir fol lies, and now occupy, or pretend to oc cupy, the identical platform which the Republican recommended them to m cupy three years ago. What the Times meant, but did not have the temerity to assert, was that we had spoken in rather plain terms of the people who followed its pernicious coun sels—accusing them of their mistakes and lecturing them fearfully for their offense against good government and their own interests. It misapplied the generic term " the people" to its own followers, and abused honest criticism by calliug good advice "slander." When such papers forget their prejudices against five-eighths of the population, and strike for reform iu the name of all the people, instead of a class, then they may essay to lecture the Republican, which to-day represents a larger constituency than all the other papers in the city put together. FALSE PRETENSES. Is it not strange that the sore-head par ty, which has subsidized to its interest the opposition press of the city, has the affrontery to allege that it has in view the interests of the people? Is it silly enough to suppose that the people have forgotten the liu-v ms of the past and are willing to take its word against a long history of crime, oppression and cruelty ? Yet this is its position. Until the present Repub lican administration the poor man's rights 'in Louisiana were as dust beneath the feet of the Democratic party. From the settlement cf the country up to the war the rich- 1 —the merchant ami the lordly plantc-r— controlled the politics of the State. Its offices were held by a few, and the right of suffrage was confined to the privileged classes. These same people, who are now clamoring against the admin istration of Governor Warmofh, are the men who were then iu power; whose wealth was the acquisition of slave labor; whose pride was nurtured by the arrogant control of human beings in bondage. Under tlu-ir aggressive and domineering administration of the government the poor became poorer amd the rich grew intol erent. This went on for fifty years, and during that long period there is not a single in stance upon record where the legislation of the State was devoted to the interests or benefit of the non-taxpaying population. The war came, and with it a revolution in polities. A new element suddenly sprung into existence and became a recog nized source of power. They were in tbe majority. They composed more than a moiety of the population, and, with popu lar suffrage as their leverage, wrenched the government from the hands of the effete and incompetent persons who controlled it. From that moment began the incessant din of the hungry office-seeking partisans and their stfjoportere in whose interest the government had been administered. As they had been unscrupulous when in power, so were they even in their false and scandalous outcry against the repre sentatives of the people. The govern ment. no longer perverted to individual interests, became a source of equal aud exact justice to all tbe people. The labor ing classes, no longer the drudges and un recompensed menials of the domineering planter and the aristocratic merchant, became the object of continual abuse and incessant contumely. Intrigue was set on foot, and combinations of defeated parti sans conspired against the government. The opposition press swelled the clamor, and far and wide the anathemas of these defeated intriguants were spread through the land. But all their efforts proved unavailing. The mismanagement of previous years developed itselt in an honest administration of the govern ment, aud theresults of the war, incited by slave-holding Democrats, was attempted to be attributed to Republican rulers. This, too, failed. The people, growing every day more partial to the new system oi government, became familiar with its operations, aud inaugurated wise and salutary measures of legislation. Some abuses crept in certainly. But to them the correction was speedily applied, and to them the new regime every day became more deeply fixed in the hearts of the peo ple. But these abuses, which the Repub licans themselves have first sought to cor rect, have been seized upon by tho clamor ous aristocracy as affording them a pos sible avenue to regain power. Determined to lose no chance to crush out popular gov ernment, they are unscrupulous in their means and false iu their pretensc-s. The enemies of the people, they yet falsely as sume their names to carry out their wicked aims. The proof is apparent to every rea-< u ing mind. What sympathy has the rich merchant with the poor laboring 1 lack man or the laboring white men ? Who compose the Committee of Fifty-one ? Is there a single laboring man on it? Is there a poor man on it? Who owns the "people's organ," as it styles itself? Mer chants ! Is there a single laboring man iu tbe long list of its wealthy proprietors? Do you believe they care for any interests but their own ? Who has given the black man his legal rights in Louisiana ? Did the Committee of Fifty-one contribute to it? Did the merchants of New Orleans help him to get them ? Who, then, are your friends ? The men who sought to oppress you and keep you in bondage, or those who have made you free citizens of the republic? To these questions theie can be but one an swer. THE ACCOUCHEMENT. The parturition of the Committee of Fifty-one is over; their travail has ended; the "people's paper" was its wise ac coucheuse, and the issue has developed into a pamphlet characterized as the "report of the sub-committee of investigation of the departments of the city government." Under this magnificent and flaming title, the committee expend a vast accumulation of nonsense am> not a particle of useful information. Indeed, they have submittt d their luculent conclusions in a thirty-page pamphlet, tho cost of printing which amounts to more than any error they have discovered in the city administration This, however, is not surprising, inas much as everybody anticipated precisely this result. If there had been the grossest errors, this committee never would have discovered them. They were organized to condemn certainly, but it was expected they would offer some reasons, r- al or fancied, for their condemnation. Selected to try, aud appointed to convict the Ad ministrators, it was only incumbent on them to get up a superficial and unrea soning cumulation of stale prejudices and exploded slanders; but the sub-committees, doubtless, Laving more agreeable employ ment than an investigation of facts and Agues, get the matter off their hands as speedily as possible with these summary conclusions : The Mayor, "good, honest soul," is a weak sort of vessel, and we must deal with him kindly ; besides, lie don't object to being used as a cat s paw to pull our chestnuts out of the fire, and is always willing to play tbe convenient jumping jack to our political necessities. We'll pass him along as all correct. Remember the moral injunction, "Love men for tie ir weakness, and deal tenderly with tie dis traught in mind." Nothing particularly objectionable is found in the Department of Waterworks and Public Buildings, and the Adminis trator of Police is praised for his "can dor." Evidently the committee did not expect to find this courtesy in Colonel Lewis, and they mention it as the only noteworthy circumstance connected with his department. The commercial interests of the city, the vast trade that centres here, and all the manifold and complicated relations of business, are, in the opinion of this wise committee, of but slight importance, and the department which is instituted to de velop and further these interests coni 1 be easily dispensed with. But, while making this recommendation, the committee ac knowledge that it is conducted ably and upon economical principles. From Commerce the report passes to Assessment and Finance, developing no material idea and pointing out no error. Their criticism of the Department of Ac counts consists of a compilation of Mr. Shaw's budget reports, and the simple suggestion that it reveals a system of keep ing the accounts of the city not sufficient ly comprehensive. But the ' -mare's nest' r is found in the Department of Improve ments—a very little mare's nest, too, and without a single egg in it. The commit tee say that they have submitted the af faire of this department to a "most search ing investigation;" and oh! tell it not in Gath, proclaim it not in Ahkelon, they found Mr. Cockrem, • the head of the de partment, and his employes, competent and attentive and faithful in the discharge of their duties. Oh, what a fall was here, my countrymen ! When this is read what a weeping and wailing will there Ire among the hungry office-seekers of the "coali tion !" What a gnashing of teeth in the self-elected and self-conceited "organ of the people," the rampageous Picayune. In all the elaborate report they fail to dis close a single error or mistake, aud, where "swindling contracts" were looked for, compliments are as thick as blackberries iu June. Alas ! for the Committee of Fif ty-ofie; it lues groaned in huge labor pains, like unto a mountain in travail, and lias brought forth a very diminutive mouse. THE PICAYUNE AND SERGEANT WYNNE. Our shop-keepers' organ has just been interviewing Sergeant Wynne, an ex-po liceman, who had charge of Wickliffe's office about the time he lost 82500 in cash aud several hundred thousand dollars of Ship Island stock. The ex-sergeant is placed on the stand as a witness against Governor Warmoth. We are perfectly willing to let the testimony go to the jury without cross-examination. We fear that our new brother in the editorial chair has been sold again. This is the fate of green horns. When one of the two hundred and fifty editors of the Picayune will consent to employ Sergeant Wynne to take charge of his store, we shall think it worth while to read and carefully examine his testimony. Tho journalistic prize fight which a great many nervous people have predicted is already on the tapis. The Times, which has long set up to be the heavy weight bully with the belt on. has offended the Picayune, which heretofore contented it self with being a light-weight boxer, but which now enters the field as against all sorts of buffers of the newspaper list. A polite interchange of such civilities as pre cede a rough and tumble set-to has already taken place. The Times calls the Picayune a "mad luminary," and the Picayune re torts that the Times is a "frivolous and egotistical fraud. " Such compliments can only end in one way. The mastery as be tween these two contestants will have to be decided, and the Republican offers it self as bottle-holder at the tournament. We shall stand at the backs of these cham pions until their fronts are disfigured be yond recognition. This is all a friend can do. _ It grieves us to say that the Times says the Pi caynne did not put off its decrep itude and garrulity when it changed hands the other day. It is still old and talka tive, aud, like all of its class, it looks back at the work that it has done, or flatters itself it has done, with greater fondness than it looks forward to the work which it intends to do. The Times should be more respectful to old age than this, for while youth is climbing the rugged hill with daring ambition to win the crown upon its summit, it should ever respect the venerable sage who ha> passed over and is slowly descending ou the other side. If the world is indeed the oyster of him that opens it, the man who can swallow three dozen raw should not make fun of liis older brother who can only digest a stew. We must all grow old, and in onr weakness we must even look back and chatter as all the other old folks do. cuing li IS Tho Picayune of yesterday the subjoined paragraph: The State House iniquity, a bill which is to cost this State over $1,000,000 in-taxes. I»aid during a scries of ten years, tilling the pockets of Governor Warmoth and his partners in this game full to overflowing, is up before the Legislature, and the Gov ernor is doing his best to rush it through. If it is meant by this to say that Gover nor Warmoth has had anything to do with the State House bill, has contrived it, or in any way interested himself with it. or expects to reap a single cent's advantage from it, the statement is utterly and com pletely false, and is on a par with another publication in reference to the alleged poi soning of the late Lieutenant Governor Dunn. The touching incident of the two moth ers who appeared before Solomon the Wise, each claiming ownership of the same child, is about to be produced in New Orleans. A bastard, with the high sounding title of "People's Party," has been brought forth from the promiscuous political bed-fellowship which has existed among the opponents of Republicanism for tbe past two years, and the Times and Picayune are pulling each other's hair about the paternity of it iu the most frantic manner. Considering that it is but a weakly deformity, this contest is not with out interest, as proving tho strength of consanguineous tics. The Times desires to enlist in its new party most of the white people and such negroes as are honest. Whether this new product is the same reform party that the Times has been laboring with for two years and more, and which seems to have deserted its bed and board to follow after the truculant leadership of the Picayune, or is an entirely new concern, warranted not to desert, we are not informed; but one thing we are sure of, that it does not want any but honest negroes in its camp. This is the rule of the party, and it will not be broken. So says the Times, infer entiaily. - The Louisville Ledger says the Demo cratic ticket will carry Louisiana with out any help from the liberal Republicans in the next election for President. Now, w ill the Ledyer please tell us all about this ? The Republicans outnumber the Demo crats in Louisiana at least thirty thousand voters, and yet the latter are to carry the State ? Have they discovered a way to do this against odds that no man can deny or miscalculate ? If they have they had bet ter patent it at once, and then shut up the patent office. ^ THE STATU HOUSE. Shortly after the Senate was called to order yesterday, Senator Thomas lose to a personal explanation. He said his attention had been called to an editorial in one of the daily papers of the city, assigning a reason, by implication, for his absence from the Senate the day before vlien an important vote was taken on tho. election bill. He said the editorial did him an injustice, inas much as it misrepresented the cause of his absence when tho vote in question was taken, llis absence from the Senate on Friday was nuf caused by a desire to shirk a duty ho owed tho people. Sickness was the real cause of his absence, and that sick ness was something over which lie had no control. He had not been well during the present session of tho Legislature, aud the intemperate debates that had taken place on Wednesday and Thursday ou the elec tion Hill had increased ids illness so much as to occasion his absence, aud an unfair editorial criticism of his conduct. Ho said he was an uncompromising Democrat, and nothing hut sickness prevented him from attending to his Senatorial duties ou Fri day. The consideration of tho amendments to the election law was continued iu the Senate yesterday, without reaching a finality. From present appearances it may take two or three days more for the Senate to get through with the. amendments to this law. Yesterday was resolution day in the House, aud members seemed resolutely bent on doing nothing but offer resolutions aud discuss parliamentary rules. Mr. Murray offered a resolution authoriz ing and instructing the Speaker to appoint a special committee of five to investigate the atiairs of the Metropolitan Police, aud report to the House as soon as practicable, the same to be done without expense to the State. After considerable "filibustering" the resolution was adopted. Dr. Worrall said he had been urgently solicited by some of our most respectable citizens to have the affairs of the State Seminary investigated. He therefore of fered a resolution authorizing the Speaker to appoint a committee for that purpose. The resolution was seriously opposed, and the eloquence of the Doctor could not pre vent its final defeat, though it did prolong the consideration of the subject. A concurrent resolution was then read and adopted asking the United States Con gress to refund to the Southern people the tax collected on raw cotton. It was sent immediately to the Senate fur its concur rence. Mr. II. Lott ottered a resolution increas ing the committee appointed to investigate the charges preferred by Governor War moth against George E. Bovee, the sus pended Secretary of State, from seven to nine members. Iu ottering this resolution, Mr. Lott said the committee as it now stood was composed of political foes and personal enemies to .Mr. Bovee, and he asked that it lie increased, so that fair play could he had. These remarks brought Mr. Davidson to his feet. He said he was a member of that committee, and auy person who said lie would not treat the subject fairly made a false statement. Mr. Davidson said he had been appointed on that committee against his wishes to serve on it. and he was deter mined not to shrink from liis duty. lie would endeavor to have justice done in the premises. Mr. Carr, also, as a member of the com mittee, hurled back auy insinuation that might be thrown out against those who originally composed ir. Mr. Lott's resolution was then adopted, and the House, on motion, was adjourned until Monday next at twelve o'clock. ON CARONDELET STREET. Aud row tlie retrospect of the past week, jogging along in the everlasting march to | the euil of the business year, shows a slow motion to business anil a kind of tedium iu its chronicle—a lack of spirit which must cither be attributed to the flickering down of the spirit of speculation or to the uncer tainty of political complications, we scarcely know which. Prices of cotton ure for the most part hard, excepting sales incidental to a money pressure, when cash must he realized. Steadiness is tlie significant feature of the opt ton trade. Its current may have bends and accelerated motion—may rise like a fiood tide to 12,000 bales sold iu a day, and fall the next—hut its average orbit shows a steady demand and an equally steady sup ply. Measured by prices, the movement is an undulation ; consequently, tbe daily rec ord of tlie cotton business is something like the time tables of an almanac, which, from day to day, figure out the pnward motion of the earth, or rather, the risiDg and setting of the sun. Or it is like keeping a daily tide gauge where tln-re is nothing to do hut tell how high (he water is to-day, when the motionless current itself cheats the re porter of an interesting and sensational report. The doctors have stopped diag nosing the state of the cotton market and ceased feeling its pulse for the volume of the crop. Prices look as though they would he higher by Monday, though the undoubt ed stagnation of the first day of every week will postpone, perhaps, a realization. The Levee Company have gone seriously to work. Gaps are tilled. Stray stocks running about loose have been picked up and are now quoted about $3.
