JAMES EAGAN, Stonewall Saw, Stables, 134 Baionne stfeet. de20 ly THE STATE HOUSE. Both houses of the Legislature resumed business in earnest yesterday. The Senate was called to order at twelve o'clock, re mained in session until about four in the afternoon, and then took a recess until halt past seven, for the purpose of holding a night session. After receiving reports of committees, the consideration of the amendments to the election law was re sumed, and several sections passed upon. The extended discussion on the proposed amendments to this law have rendered night sessions necessary, and they will likely be found requisite for tbe balance of the term, if members are not more brief in explaining their views. Shortly after the House had been called to order yesterday, Mr. Faulkner rose to a question of privilege. He said he banded to the Clerk, on Saturday last, a certain "notice," that had been sent him iu the shape of a threat. He desired to have the Clerk read it for the information of mem bers, and he would also ask to have it spread upon the journal of the House. Mr. Carr objected to having the disreput able missive inserted iu the journal. It was finally agreed, however, that the Clerk should read the "notice." The following is a copy of the precious document, minus the choice embellishments: To A. W. Faulkner, of Caldwell palish ; You are hereby notified that if you do not cease your attempts to have the State House bill postponed, you will he finished'quietly, hut surely. He warned. So help you Uoil. The reading caused a good deal of mer riment among members, and tlie whole subject was finally laid upon the table. On motion of Mr. Matthews, the follow ing House bills on their third reading, as they appeared in the printed calendar of yesterday, were finally acted upon : House bill No. 30.3 (Mr. La Saliniere). rel ative to criminal proceedings. House bill No. 306 (Mr. Marvin), to amend section 3373 and 34174 Revised Statutes. House bill No. 303 (Mr. La Saliniert), fixed salary for parish judges.

House bill No. 392, introduced by Mr. Garstkamp, to repeal the charter of the New Orleans. Metairie aud Lake Railroad was laid upon the table subject to call. Ou motion of Mr. Dewees, the report of the city educational conference com mittee was made, aud adop ed by a vote of fifty-three yeas to .twenty-four nays. It is favorable to the city tax of five-sixteenths of one per cent for the support of the public schools of New Orleans. On motion of Mr. Matthews the House then went into committee-of the whole for the purpose of considering bills re ferred there, to be taken in tbe order in which they appeared in the printed calen dar of Monday, February 19. House bill No. 31, session of 1871, in troduced by Mr. Buckingham, for the re lief of W. H. Vaughn, was considered, and recommended to be submitted to the House. House bill No. 31G, introduced by Mr. Quinn, of Orleans, for the relief of tax payers in the overflowed districts of this city, was recommended to bo indefinitely postponed. Mr. Oplatek strenuously opposed this bill, on the ground that it was not just. He believed it was only calculated to ben efit the large property-holders, and would, if passed, be the means of depriving the city of something like $200,000 of tax revenue that it could not do without at this time. The city required this amount to pay up its school teachers. Mr. Young and others also opposed the bill. House bill No. 31o, for the relief of Mrs. Martha M. Duncan, introduced by Mr. Carr, was recommended for the fav orable action of the House. House bill No. 317, for the relief of C. F. Dragnet, introduced by Mr. Blount, was recommended for adoption by the House. House bill No. 354, for the relief of David Fisher, introduced by Mr. Bowen, was recommended to the House for adop tion. House bill No. 417, for tbe relief of A. Valsin Martin, introduced by Mr. Smith, was recommended to the House for adoption. Senate bill No. 191, for the relief of Mrs. Gertrude Lipshuts, introduced by Mr. In graham, w as also favorably recommended. House bill No. 342, known as tbe State House bill, was theu taken up and freely discussed by members. Messrs. Thomp son, P. Harper, Davidson and Garstkamp spoke against the bill, and Mr. Faulk ner and Dr. Worrall iu favor of it. At half-past seven o'clock the committee of the whole agreed to rise, report progre ss on the State House bill to the House, and ask permission to sit again. Speaker Brewster then resumed the chair, received the report of the chairman of tlie commit tee of the whole, and, on motion, the House adjourned until twelve o'clock to day. _ __ THE CITY HAUL. It is now thought proper to have the Marine Hospital inspected, with a xiew of converting it into an insane asylum. The building, it is understood, can be purchased for $30,000. and the expenditure necessary to tit it fur the purposes in view will be comparatively small. The Soule property could have been bought for $25,000, but would have required a much greater out lay. Surveyor Bell is now surveying the hospital, with the view of ascertaining its adaptability for an asylum. The Adminis'rotor of Improvements has now m arly completed all the plank roads recently projected and ordered to be built. As soon as there is a sufficient rise in the river, the construction of the wharves will be resumed. At preseat it is impossible to continue the driving of the piles. The removal of the obstructions in the water pipes is not yet complete. The Ad ministrator of Waterworks has devised a plan which lie says will prevent the recur reuce of such an evil :u luture. The attention of the Administrator of police lias been called to a number of dan serous buildings scattered over the city Pi.-ny uniuits. The executive lias friends in the Legisla tuare who are compelled to vote as be di rects them tr> do. or lose their offices which they hold outside of the Legislature. Such statements as the forgegoing are eminently Ricayunisms, and are as easy to be made as lying. The Citizens' Association is still in exist ence, still in working order. Yes, and are as eager to appropriate pub lic offices and enjoy their emoluments as was ever a half starved wretch to get bread. We must work as well as pray, aud every honest man should do his duty. Few people need to pray more, lor few have violated more frequently the Bible in junction. "Thou shait not bear false wit ness." Tbe Picayune, since its new departure, has met with a success which is highly gratifying to its friends. It is really mortifying to learn that those who depart rrotu the ways c-f the upright man. aud revel in slander, still have friends. The Colemans. Those wonderful specimens of the "rising generation" made their appearance last night at the St. Charles Theatre, iu their beautiful specialty of "Stolen by Gypsies. Never did they appear to better advantage than fast evening. Each seemed ambitious to exhibit their talent, and it may be said to their credit. Clara, smiling, bewitching, soon captured the hearts of t'ue audience, and she received many hearty rounds of applause. This infant prodigy gives token of talent that bids fair to make her name a fortune. The other two children deserve special mention for the manner in which they rendered their difficult parts. The people of this city should not fail to witness these wonders of the stage. A visit will convince them that ail that has been said is true, and that they are, without doubt, the most wonderful and truly ex quisite actors on the American stage.

Seven died of bronchitis, nine teen of consumption, nineteen ot pneu. inonia, six of fevers, and two cf gunshot i wounds. THE LOUISIANA PAPER MILL A paper mill is new in this city, Many enterprising citizens, at different times, have projected such an undertaking, but if memory serves this reporter aright, it never went along further than to find out what was wanted and then stop. It was at tempted to found an institution of this kind in C'hatawa, near Magnolia, Mississippi, to be run by water power of the Tangipahoa river, which has, where it was proposed to locate the works, a fall of thirteen feet with in a mile. The works got so far as the erection of the ground floor, the brick being manufactured on the spot out of the rich beds of clay in that neighborhood, but then a palsy fell upon it, aud the sheriff came in, hoisted his red flag, and sold out the whole concern. These works are at present in a beautiful state of decay. Hence there is all the more reason to congratulate the founders of the present enterprise in hav ing got so far already as to have the Louis iana Paper Mill, as it is called, in thorough operation, and in the actual business of turning out paper. The machinery has the capacity of manu fact uring 2300 pounds of any quality of paper except writing paper every day, and com bines in itself all the "modern improve ments" which, from year to year, have been added to the art. Yesterday was the first time that the mill made paper. For some time the projectors of the plan have been busily engaged inputting it into operation, in spite of the usual difficulties that seem to attend all manufacturing enterprises (ex cept whisky distilling) in New Orleans, and that they have finally succeeded, and are actually working to the profit of the stock holders, the view taken of the works yester day affords sufficient evidence. Paper making is simply a process of di gestion, as there are knives to operate as teeth, lime water to serve as saliva water, sal soda to be used as the gastric juice, and a gradation of rollers to perform the func tions ot the chyliterous organs. To begin with the process of deglutition. Iu a wide, large room, consisting as yet of only the bare board walls, through which the light comes in dimly by installments, one finds various piles of rags, which have first to be sorted into mixed cotton, soft woolen, hard woolen, white paper, manilla rope and manilla paper, and (according to what style of paper is to be made), the rags having been sifted, are placed in a machine to be cut. The rags pass thence up an elevator into .a cylindrical sieve, which, rapidly revolving, cleanses them still more, when they go thence to a revolving steam boat boiler, descending through a man hole, where they are treated to a dose of steam and lime water, which operatiion ren ders any more cleaning entirely unnecessary and tlie work of deglutition is complete. Tbe rags are now literally "chawed up," and are transferred to the three stomachs of this monster to undergo digestion. These are similar to the mash tubs in a brewery and the rags, in different stages ot emasculation, pass from one to the other, into one and out of the other, until they reach the big gest tub of all (getting there by a rotary pump), this being like a beer vat, and once in this the rags are reduced to a line pulp, or rather -pap." Then begins the opera tion of rolling: over one roller, under an other the pulp being "spread" by machinery on a canvass bed. aud then "going through the mill" until it gets to be paper at tlie further end of this series of cylinders,where it is "cut according to order" and theu haled. All the kinds of paper are made bv this process, the varieties in color, con sistency and quality being produced a3 occasion demands or necessity requires. Tlio present mill is located at X'o. 23i Liberty street, and runs to No. '24.3, only stopping short at the marble yard, on the corner of Girod street, opposite the ceme tery, which latter abode of the departed, those who are cheerfully inclined can over look from the windows ot the mill. Iu common with the stockholders and gentle men assembled there yesterday, who wished, over a glass of wine, prosperity to the com pany, the reporter welcomes the enterpise as one which, if it does not succeed iu the future, will not be owing to tlie want of good wishes from those assembled yester day. A handsome collation was provided iti honor of the event, and the representatives of the city press, besides Messis. Sauviuet. Heath, Clarence, Pemberton, Meyer, who are officers of the company, and Messrs. \V. A. Weed, N. Schmidt, J. W. Schoe necker, C. F. Buck, S. Keifer, S. Delassize, Aristide Marie, Professor Williams and others. Aral the above is about all the reporter knows about the Louisiana Paper Manu facturing Company. AMUSEMENTS. St. C'hnrles Theatre.
