The quadrennial elec t!on for a President of the United htatei occurs this year. The election of lids high officer of the republic, whose character and political views are so important, especially to the Republicans of tbo Soutu. and whose selection almost decides our po litical fate lor the uexi lour years, and perhaps the whole, future, makes this election one of the deep ami most vital info rest to all our people. We leel that v.e s}H*ak their unanimous sentiment hen we invite them to respond to the call of the National Republican Committee, ami advise them tub our best representative men |o the Phila delphia Convention, to help iu selecting a tried, true and uij flinch mg Republican to be our next President. Our Mate e ectiou is also of the great est importance. We have to elect a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, hecietary cf Mate, Auditor ot Public Ac**ouuts. .Sui*erinteudeut of Public Edu cation, Attorney GeUeial, a new Geueial Assembly, and Representatives iu Congress.

Mrs. South worth posseeses an exhaustless It ml of originality, and commands, popular .y always aiming to improve iu every new t .1 upon her last production.

It is full of strange and startling incidents, sustained interest, stirring adventure, touching pathos and glowing dialogue, all provocative of quickened pulses, sometimes laughter, but oftenest of tears to the rapt reader, whose interest never for a moment flags.

Editor Republican : I hardly think that your local makes out his ease, when iu the article iu last Sunday's paper he endeavors to account for the un popularity of Covington as a watering place, by stating that its citizens some years ago aided in the escape of criminals, and threat ened the lives of a posse of officers who were seeking to apprehend them. Certainly such an occurrence could hardly have pio duced so serious an effect upon the minds of residents ot Xew Orleans, tor the people of that city can not he unacquainted with acts of a like nature, perpetrated, not once, but often, right here at home; and should by this time lie too much accustomed to seciug justice defeated by the murderer, the thief aud the assassin to he easily alarmed by auy of the little "one-horse" shows of the kind which a small country village could he capable of getting up. The idea ot any old resident of the Cres cent City being scared away from Coving ton by the very few rowdies which could, under any circumstances, be brought to gether ina riotous assemblage there, seems to me to he as unnatural as the frightening of a locomotive driver by means of a steam whDtle. Tlie veterans who have witnessed the Cuban riots, the Know nothing demon strations, the vigilance committee, etc., of the days before the war, and the very fre quent and terribly sanguinary riots of later days, can not certainly fail to "know how it is themselves." and should be expected to eviuee a little more pluck than to be afraid of going to spend the summer at a place where the lilootl of the inhabitants is kept below fever heat by the balmy breezes from the pine woods aud thelaxitive waters of the mineral springs. Xo. sir. depend npon if. your local is on the wrong track. The real cause is more likely to he that the people here, were afraid the place weuld be too dull—that there would not be riots enough to give them the excitement to which they were accustomed: that they would rust out aud "spile for a tight" amid the-oft soughing of the pines, and that the Sterling \ ichy water would so regulate their digestions that they would no longer witness a skriuimage with satis faction. Seriously. 1 am not disposed to believe llmt the affair mentioned by your local had much influence for bad upon the fortunes of the metropolis of St. Tammany, as such aiiairs were of loo common occurrence about that time all over the State, and po iice officer- have had a pretty rough road to travel in every locality. The real cause of the oblivion in which this really eligible locality rests is that no one has ever felt it worth his while to interest himself in its favor; and besides, it is a sort of out-of the way place—there being no direct mode of reaching there oi'tener than twice a week, at present. But now that we are soon to have duilv trips of the Cornelia at a reduced tare, and when Castle Sterling is known through your columns to be tbe best kept country tavern in the South—when your Tenders have been told that there is a possibility that residents there will not be entirely cut off from their favorite amusement of wit nessing the spring and summer tights, and that they will not die of ennui in the ab sence of the hum of tlie pistol bullet or the chillies of the derringer—now. I say. we may expect a change, and Covington yet become what nature intended le r to be. the country house of the Crescent City. KNARF.

Cooldy against the Orleans Railroad Company is set for trial in the Sixth District Court on the first of April (al! fools' day), and will be tried bv a jury. In the suit of John Tobin against tLe Canal and Claiborne Street Railroad Com pany ft verdict of 8'Jflflfl w as rendered in favor of plaintiff. The Louisiana State Lottery Company have sued Hondo Brothers ft/f $.1000 dam ages lor violation of the act by which plaintiffs w ere incorporated. A suit for divorce has been instituted by a wife, who alleges cruel treatment and abusive epithets before "third parties" oil the part of her husband. In the suit of the Slaughterhouse Com pany against James Statford the defendant lias answered denying every allegation iu plaintiffs' petition, and he admits lit* has slaughtered beeves in the town of Algiers as charged in plaintifl's' petition, but did the same under the special order and pro tection of this court; that the articles claimed by plaintiff's arc the property oi defendant: that the exaction of head, horns and hoofs is a contribution illegally imposed upon linn, aud that lie is not bound to pay it. De fendant avers that the company are vio lating their charter by tearing down and removing the sheds nnd stables on the west bank, and that they have prevented luimy butchers from slaughtering, in violation of law: that the act to protect the health of the city is unconstitutional and void. He further says tie has suffered damages in the sum of $J.iOi), and that the company are further indebted, by the* violation ot their charter, in tlie snm ol' $100. He prays that the. recunveiifionul demand may be filed: that he have judgment against the plain tiff's iu the sum of $:500, and that the char ter ot said company may„be declared for feited, illegal and null aud void. In ihe -ait of Cotton & Levy against Crack <&. Durhridge, the plaintiff's, a legal firm, sue for a fee, urging that both iuui vulttals of the firm are responsible. Judge Cooley decided the ease yesterdqy. The fee originated iu the employment of the plaintiffs by Durbridgo & Grace in settle ment of the partnership between them. In that suit a judgment for $-800 was ren dered iu favor of Grace against Durhridge.' During tlie absence of the plaintiffs the plaintiff and defendant in the-suit' compro mised, Grace accepting $ 1100 in payment of the judgment against Durhridge' The liiaiutitfs now claim that as attorneys they hud a privilege on that judgment to secure the payment of their fees, which could not lie divested or annulled by any act of the plaintiff or defendant in the original suit. it is contended on the part of Durhridge that, in order to he effective, the privilege in favor of Cotton Levy should have been recorded. That the defendant, pos sessing the, property upon which the privi lege tit favor of Cotton jk Levy Imre, could not he affected by it, unless bo was in formed of its existence and amount by a registry made as required by law. In order to solve the objection raised by the defend ant it is necessary to inquire whether Dar in fdge was, in the sense of the law. a third person, because, under tbe constitution of 18fl8 and the laws made to enforce that con stitution, privileges may exist as between the parties, and may he enforced without any registry whatever. It is only when ever these privileges are set up against third persons that the law requires as a condition precedent, that the privilege should be recorded. Was Durbpidge a third person in the sense that the law de fines third persons ( The article of the Civil Code, Xo. 313'J, giving definition of "third persons." says that third persons to a contract or judgment are those who are not parties to that contract or to that judg ment. They are generally considered per sons who acquire rights outside of or sub sequent to •ither the judgment or the con tract. OI course, those persons are not bound by that contract. But was Dur hridge a third person according to this definition ! Can a man be said to be a third person as regards a judgment wherein he figures as the judgment debtor ! He is a party to the litigation which gave rise to the privilege in favor of the attorney, and that privilege was obtained contradictorily with him, just as much as the judgment itself; because if the plaintiff in that case did not succeed in ob taining judgment against Durhridge, under the law he could have no privilege There fore. the privilege was obtained contradic torily with the defendant, just as much as the obtaining the judgment ilself. Dur r bridge, then, was not a third person, but was simply the holder, with full knowledge of the privilege in favor of Cotton & Levy. Being I lie custodian nf th« property, he goes to work deliberately le destroy it: because, by the compromise which he made wilh Grace and the satisfaction of the judgment which was the result of that compromise, he effectually destroyed the very thing on which the attorneys (Cotton ,5c Levy) had a privilege. It is just the same as' if Dur britlge And iu his possession a horse, or any other piece id movable property, upon, w hich a third person had a privilege to the know ledge of Durhridge. If Durhridge had taken his pistol and killed that horse de liberately, or set file to the movable prop erty and destroyed it, would he not lie re sponsible to the party whom lie had injured by the destruction of the very object which was given to him by law as security for the payment ot his debt ! It seems to tue that, under article •ff'Pt of the Civil Code, which. Sa\s whatever art of man causes duuingi s obliges him by whose fault it happens to repair it. Iiiat llic custodian of the object upon which the privilege bore, in a ease like that, who has deliberately destroyed it, is responsible. He hits rendered himself personally liable by the destruction, by his own act, ol the property upon which the privilege bore. If the law giving a privilege to attorneys j If the law giving a privilege to attorneys Upon judgments obtained by them differently interpreted, it would amount to no security whatever to the attorneys in eases wbeiein the, judgment is for a Mint of money. The judgment debtor could at any moment destroy the privilege by paying to liis creditor the full amount of tlie judg ment. thus leaving the attorney mimu»iif the very thing the law intended should be a security lor his fee. The privilege would be. then more of a sham than a reality. 1 can not suppose the lawgiver intended such a thing. I am of the opinion Durbridg.:, tin judgment debtor, having defiled with his creditor, without retaining sufficient out of the judgment to satisfy the, privilege of the attorney which existed thereon, made hint sell personally responsible lot the debt. The judgment- will be entered iu favor ol plaintiffs and against both defendants. At the opera house of Oporto, nor long ago, a young actress, playing tlie part of Xerlinu in "Fra Diavolo," undressed so in decently in the famous night scene of the opera that her lover, who witnessed the performance from a balcony box, hurriedly lelt the theatre, but soon returned with a revolver, and in a paroxysm of rage and in dignalion deliberately shot her dead when she reappeared upon tiie stage. A New Albany (Indiana) lady, whose bus band occasionally flies into a passion, is in tlie habit on such occasions of walking to the kitchen door and calling the servants in. \\ hen they enter, wondering v hat their mistress wants with them, she tains to her husband and coolly bids hitu to continue bis remarks. It is useless to sav that he wove:- adds a word in high temper alter the appearance of the servants. Last night, at ten o'clock, the w< atiiijr was quite cool, anil gusts of wind rendered the streets dusty. A celebrated writer says that, if one could but read it, every hum in being carries his life in his face, and is good looking or the reverse, as that life has been good or evil. THE CITY HAUL. * Th? last few days appear to have been, destitute of interest art the Hall. An nu usual dearth of anything like active, busi ness prevails in all tbe departments. The condition of things regarded so fortunate by the Committee of Fifty-one has come to pass. Nothing is doing. It is not, how ever, expected to last a great while. The Administrators, like Micawber, are waiting for something "to turn up." It is reported that the water in the Mis sissippi river is lower than it has been at any time during tlie month of March since 1815. In that year it was two feet above ocean level, and this year it is three. The lowest mark it reached during previous years was live feet ( : n 1814), aud high water mark is considered twelve feet above the present measurement. Du Monday evening Mayor Flanders re ceived a telegram front tlie stage of the Philadelphia Academy of Music, extending the good wishes of an audience assembled at a lecture there, aud hoping that Xew Orleans would send a delegation of her people to the World's Fair, to tie held in Philadelphia in 187ti. The Mayor forwarded the following res ponse : Xew Orlkans, .March 18, 1,872.

Owing to the absence of Governor War moth, nothing has been done in the De partment of Public Aeoounts toward the collection of the Metropolitan Police or school tax.

Emmet lias made his reputation as an actor in Charles Galrlord's drama of "Fritz." Almost every theatre-goer has seen him, and it would be useless to eulo gize his characteristics. In the drama of "Fritz" it is a moral im possibility to judge whether Emmet con tains auy genius or not. The plot is so extremely sensational that it is amusing, aud coupled with the chief attraction, his songs, it would he folly to attempt to criti cise the piece, but suffice it to say that Emmet's acting does not make the piee'e, but his songs and dances, together with his droll and irresistible manner of rendering them. Such is the character of J'ri':. it does not give to the auditor any definite idea as to his ability. But iu "Carl" stu b suppositious vanish, and Euiniet appears in a new and decidedly improved role. "Carl" ts an emotional drama. It does not give the slightest chance to introduce any of the witticisms that have so char acterized Emmet iu his specialties, but. on tbe contrary, it requires all tlie power of emotion that an actor can command. Now, there are but few people who believe that he has this power. His songs and dances, at which so many have laughed, have created au impression that lie is, technically, "a song and dance man." Now, to remove such impressions, we would advise all who are so impressed to witness his representation of Curl. In tLis piece he exhibits liis idea o*" emo tion. His search for his sister, which, to quote, he 'will neber, neber see again," is depicted to nature. Not that Mr. Emmet is perfect in this character; for it contains passages which reveal the capacity fora loftier development, a wider and grander culture, which to delineate to life will re quire many mouths of hard and continuous study—then, and not until then, will Jeffer son have a rival in Curl, and when this is accomplished Il>/> Can Winkle will fall com pletely in the shade alongside of Carl. The second act is dei ideilly the most dif ficult and the, best piece of acting. The ob ject of his long search is obtained, and he is the happy possessor of a beautiful sister. This act contains scenes similar to •• Rip Van Winkle." The recognition is a wonder ful piece of acting, llis broken Teutonic dialect, articulated pathetically, inclines one to smile at the poor Dutchman's en deavors to eouvince Dora that lie is •• her brudder," hut when he sings his exquisite lullaby, which is couched in such beauti tifulh expressive language, ain't arranged to charming music, lie wins the hearts of the entire audience, and they go heart and soul with hitu throughout the entire performance. Never was ther» such an ex cellent representation of the heart-broken brother. Never was ifuture's mirror held up to the gaze of an audience before as this scene depicts. The impassioned strains, the eloquence of his songs, the delicate ro mance is charming in the highest accept ance of the term. Emmet, young, ambitious and energetic, lias w ithin his grasp a fortune if he chooses to accept it. His success in "Carl" is not so flattering as that of "Fritz," but it takes time to accomplish all things. The drama js susceptible of milch improvement. The second act is almost entirely out ol place, and could he placed :o more advantage in the last. But Charles Gaylord, with his usual egotistical manner, wrote "Carl ' for himself and not for Emmet, and now it re mains for Emmet to reconstruct, remodel and revise the piece so as to make it accept able to the public. It must be remembered that "Cail" is a play that can be witnessed more than once, and with Emtuet as its re constructor, it can be made as popular ain't as good a standard drama as "Rip Van Winkle." ihe 1*. Gleason arrested yesterday for carrying concealed weapons is not tbe renowned "P. G." of St. Charles Theatre fame. He indignantly denies the allega tion, atnl scorns to carry anything-more deadly than a mcershaum pipe. As the result of speculation, flour has reached a l^jgh price, aud the choicest brands retail at $12 10. BY TELEGRAPH.

W ASHING TON. Argument io Supreme Court on Ku-K!u\ Case— I.miixianiun* with the President. Washington, March 20.—A. gument iu the Ku-Kltix case was continue i to-day in the Supreme Court. The preliminary argu ment has closed, and the court will details to-morrow upon dismissal of the case upon technical grounds.

Colonel Carter and others, with the President, by appoint ment. ibis afternoon. When they arrived at the. White House Senator West and Gover nor Warinoth were with the President. Warmoth proposed to compromise, declar ing his w illiugm ss to support the notnina rion of General Grant. After the interview with Governor War lung interview with the President.

Ii is understood that Governor Warmoth proposed to General Grant, in view of ad justing Louisiana political complications, that the two committees should unite in calling a State nominating convention, and it is reported by tlie Governor's lrientls that the President expressed himself favor able to the proposition. The Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of War and Postmaster General assisted the President this afternoon in the attempt at solving the differences of the Louisiana factions. 1 1 was a seini-Cabinet affair.
