Republican: Yesterday I reviewed a uortion of the Bouibon record as popularly received, and I charged to the Bourbons, not only opposi tion. to civil rights, school, constabulary and election laws, all of which were neces sary in an emergency to secure the rights of the citizen, but also complicity with and responsibility for the evil legislation which has disgraced the State. Since its publiea' tion, I have read a copy of the address of the central commissioners of the Reform party to the, people of Louisiana, signed by Charles A. Breaux, Daniel Dennett, E. Le franc, William M: Iiurwe.il, C. Ward, E. N." CuJIom and T. Bailly Blanchard, and issued in 1870. That address cites as a necessity for an independent reform organization: ^ 4. A flagrant corruption in every part of the State and municipal goverments, im puted indiscriminately to both the political parties which have occupied.'authority. Further on: The abuses complained of are chiefly per petrated by rapacious adventurers anil Southern renegades; the one acting in the name and upon the perverted authority of the colored people, the other professing an equally unwarranted and counterfeit au thority from the Democratic party. This combination has made a raid upon the State and city treasury which people of Louisiana have had no power to resist. As this infamous coalition involves rite charac ter and credit of ail who love order, who pay taxes, its defeat will require the cor dial union of all, without regard to past party or personal consideration. The gentlemen who signed that address stand among the first in the State, in brain and talent. They saw Tit that early date the blunders and errors of the Bourbons. They knew that Bourbon policy was disas trous, and hence i^ey rebelled from its lead, and endeavored to form a new party in harmony with the true condition of affairs. Their efforts may have been ill timed, in advance of public sentiment, or behind it, but. nevertheless it is interesting to note that it failed because of Bourbon ascendency in Conservative circles, and the final result was a defeat of the Democratic party in 1870 by a handsome majority. How about fusion in 187-J ? Before the assembling of the Baltimore convention, we witnessed another rebellion from Bourbon lead in the re-organization of the Reform party. The Democracy of this State was shaken to the core, as sorely as their brethren of the Republican party. Two conventions met, Bourbons and Re formers: committees of conference were ap pointed ; Reformers contended for a higher policy, hut Bourbons hesitated, and still " hankered after the flesh pots of Egypt," and. both conventions adjourned in disgust and in despair. Then followed a question able proceeding on the part of the State committees, t,Le united State ticket was born, based on the policy of 1868 and 1870— a policy promising one-half the voters of the State—the negroes—a recognition of their rights, yet actually granting them no security for the pledge. The work of the committees was commended by the Bour bons only, who, with John McEnery, for Governor, B. P. Jonas, Lieutenant Gov ernor. R. M. Lusher, Superintendent of Public Education, and J. B. Eustis, Con gressman at large, obtained a lion's share of the compact, and it was heartily opposed by the progressive portion of the Democ racy, who were ready to confront the issues of 1872 on the Cincinnati platform. t of 1872 on the Cincinnati platform. Governor Warmoth, true to the conserva tive policy which has characterized his en tire administration and his convictions, setting aside his personal ambition, cut loose from the administration wing of the Republican party and gathered around him the nucleus of the Liberal movement in Louisiana. Men of all parties speedily re sponded, and the Democratic ranks were depleted to an extent which augured well for the future. Democracy in a majority of the country parishes wasteducedto shreds; uniting with the Liberals were men whom Democracy had most loved and honored. After Baltimore and the acceptance of the Cincinnati platform, the Bourbons pre tended to accept it, in letter and spirit, while at the same time they vented their spleen and venom upon the young Liberal party. Every charge originated in tlie hot blood of 1868, or by Auditor Wicklitfo on the defensive, and the gossip ot bar rooms, was reproduced iu the onslaught upon War moth and his "tools," as progressive Demo crats were respectfully styled. This course was insulting alike to Liberal Republicans and Liberal Democrats, and it was contin ued up to the day of the assemblage of the iberal convention. Examine the rolls of that body and you will find upon it the names ot the most il lustrious aud distinguished advocates of Democracy, and these men represented ma jorities which had seceded from the Demo cratic party. The Bourbons expressed no sentiment of conciliation; the Picayune for mally excommunicated irom the ranks of honest men all who should affiliate with Warmoth, and an attitude of defiance was maintained for the purpose of whipping progressive Democracy into the Bourbon tents. ■The Liberal convention used every hon orable effort to effeot conciliation, hut the implacable spirit of the Bourbons was main tained, and the convention adjourned with patience almost exhausted. The Liberal movement had struck the chords of public sympathy. It was only necessary to stand firm on a generous declaration of princi ples, and accept a3 standard bearers repre sentative aud impartial men, and its suc cess would have been a forgone conclusion. The Bourbon influence jaused the Liberals to recede and excuse the presence of War moth, when they knew him to be the ablest party leader in the State. It afterward ex tended its meshes around the Liberal com mittee until, in a high-toned fit of gener osity, they surrendered their party, and bowed .to the behdst of -the Bourbons— threw away the labor of 1872, and returned to the policy of 1868 and 1870. It is impossible to reasonably dispel the belief that the success of fusion means a triumph of Bourbons and their peculiar policy. The revolution was too suddem It bears the marks of trading and scheming. It does not appeal to patriotic impulses, if Warmoth is the man the Picayune would have the good people believe him to be, with what consistency does it now cease its abuse 1 If the election laws are odious to good citizens,why is it now silent 7 It cannot be possible that the Picayune would assist in the election to the United States Senate of a man "not worthy to associate with honest men. - ' Would the Bourbons accept the services of a bad man, as they style Warmoth, of a swindling election law, as they call it, promise negroes all things, just to gain power .' Says the Evening Times, frankly: "The fusion party have now a great advantage, which they never had before, in the way of registiatiou. They can no longer excuse themselves for neglect by the pretext of unfriendliness and parti san hostility on the part of the registrars!" What advantage, pray ! Counting the votes ! This is an advantage "they never had before !" Liberal Democrats must either say to themselves that the contest they began with the Bourbons is right and that fusion is wrong, or they must plead guilty to the want of moral courage, which they have exhibited in withholding their support from the united State ticket. Are men of prin ciple and integrity to he used as foot-balls by plotters and schemers 1 Are parties to he surrendered without protest ? Are Lib eral views aud promises mere passing bubbles? Is the fusion, without definite ends, or a hope of success, except through friendly supervisors and registrars, to be supported by the intelligent and honor able people of Louisiana? An independent party should spring up^ if for no other pur pose than to record a decree of rebuke against it. Very respectfully. EMERSON BENTLEY. Academy of Music. The tricks of Sargent, the sleight of-hand man, now holding forth at the Academy of Music, are not "the tricks that are vain," considering that he derives a solid subsist ence lrom them, while those who witness his performances enjoy substantial satisfac tion. And, "for ways that are dark," the performances of" Professor Davies, in con nection with Mr. Sargent, are equally re markable. There is a mystery about the performances of Mr. Sargent that excites the wonder and admiration of an audience. As (heir engagement is drawing to a close, we would remind all who have not seen these clever artists to avail themselves of an op portunity to do so. Grand matinee to-day at twelve o'clock, and the last performance but one to-night. Monday evening, the regular dramatic com pany in the " Palace of Truth." Mississippi State Fair. From Colonel J. L. Power, secretary of the Planters, Manufacturers and Mechanics Association of the State ot Mississippi, we have received a complimentary invitation to attend the fourth annual State fair, which will commence at Jackson on Mon day, November 11, and continue six days. The premium list is large and liberal, and a lively competition for every prize offered will probably be made by Mississippians. Machinery and patents from other States will he on exhibition, and the handiwork of the shops and products of the fields of Mis sissippi will be largely represented. Trans portation arrangements will be made for the special accommodation of visitors and exhibitors. The Sanitary Condition of the City. Dr. Clark and Dr. Herrick, sanitary in spectors of the First and Second Districts, communicate to the Board of Health the fact that the gutters in several of the streets in those districts are in a filthy and unhealthy condition. Administrator Delas size has been notified, and has arranged to turn on the water and flush the gutters in question as often as the supply of water in the reservoir will permit. Dr. A. W. Perry, chemist of the board, has taken several specimens of gas irom these filty locations, which he is submitting to a chemical analy sis. His report thereon will be of great interest, as indicating the degrees of disease such air will generate. The Watering Places. To morrow morning, at twenty minutes past seven o'clock, a train leaves the Canal street depot of the New Orleans and Mobile railroad fur the watering places. Passen gers may buy excursion tickets, to go in the "morning and he back here before eleven o'clock a*t night, at rates much less than it costs to stay at home. The temptation of a fish dinner, salt water bathing and a stroll along the shore or in the pine woods at Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian, Mississippi City, Biloxi, or Ocean Springs will induce great numbers of our people to get away from the heat and dust of New Orleans to-morrow. Among the Pine Woods. It is a delightful excursion to get into a car at the Jackson railroad depot at twenty five minutes before eight o'clock to-morrow iporning, being first provided with a Sun day excursion ticket, and ride out to Mag nolia, or any point this,, side of there, re turning to the city about ten o'clock at night. The streams that meander along the towns through which the railroad track is built are pleasant to wander beside, while the pleasant breezes that are wafted through the pine trees invigorate the whole system. Excursion rates Very low. (Death of a Member ot the Legislature. D. L. McFarland, Esq , a member of the last Legislature from the parish of St. Mar tin, died, in this city Thursday uigbt, after a brief illness.

The Diamond Excitement—Railrond Men from the East—Another Road to the Mississippi Valley — Central Pacific Railroad Company—Colorado River and Texas PociflcRailroads—Governor Booth aud the Germans—Governor Solomon—California for Greeley. [Special Correspondenee of the Republican.] San Francisco, August 29, 1872. Editor Republican: The diamond excitement aftera few days of "fitful fever" has eeased to excite even the most credulous, and as a sensation is no longer a success, the fabled "interviews" in the local papers to the contrary notwith standing. After the discovery of the first diamond field, organization of a company, and selling the stock privately "to a few friends only" whom the stockholders wished to let into a good|thing as a mere matter of accommodation, other discoveries have "followed fast and followed faster," offer ing greater inducements to the credulous and untold wealth in return for a few dol lars invested in order to afford sufficient capital to work their new Golcondas." This week, however, no new discoveries have been reported. Probably people are begin ning to smell the narrative of a rodent. Colonels Scott, Williamson, Forney, ex Senator Harris, Governor Throckmorton, Senator Sherman, and others of the party, arrived last Thursday and were received with distinguished consideration by our leading business men, whom they addressed the following night and left Sunday for San Diego, about six hundred milqp distant down the coast, where they were received with a perfect ovation. On the way down the party stopped over a day at Los An geles; were met by a delegation of leading citizens at the steamer, and escorted into the beautiful "City of the Angels," andy spent the day in agreeable converse with its affable citizens and riding around the suburbs and enjoying the scenery of this model and pretentious little city. Our people are anxious for another rail road across the continent, and especially one to the great and wealthy Mississippi valley. Beginning with not enough money or credit to build and equip one section, or I may truthfully say, one-quarter section of road, the Central Pacific Company has received in direct contributions, in monev and bonds, from pirivate individuals, coun ties and towns iu this State, together with government bonds and lands, both State and. national, enough to build and equip) their road aud create them millionaires, the three principal directors being estimated to be worth $10,000,000 each. And yet, like all grasping corporations and avaricious men, they cry for more. They threaten to vio late a provision in their charter by making their terminus on an island in our bay, and there build up a rival city to San Fran cisco. Seeing that the Scott party "mean business," aud intend building a rival road, not asking a dollar subsidy, the great mon opolist who has waxed into a lat millionaire from an oil dealer in moderate circum stances in a second-rate city, now offers to compromise if our city will donate him sixty acres of water front for a depot and $2,500,000. Inasmuch as our citizens are taking up all tko stock, and intend build ing the Colorado river road to connect with the Texas Pacific, which latter does not ask us for a subsidy, I can see no reason why this money and valuable property should be given to a road already built, which has never shown the peopile, whose money built it, any favors, but has ground them dovtn with exorbitant freights and fares, and the demanding and receiving ad ditional subsidies, until now they are so impoverished that they are really unable to assist any new enterprise, even should it bo desired. Governor Booth, who slighted the Grant Germans by not fulfilling an engagement to address them on a former occasion, healed the dissension in that small element by addressing them last evening. Governor Solomon, of Washington Ter ritory, leaves that extreme north western slice of Grant's personal government in charge of itself, and hies himself off to address his German fellow-countrymen on the virtues and worth of his master, to whom he is indebted for his appointment, and, in consequence of this disinterested patriotism, no doubt expects a renewal of the same, if, provided, etc. Very few of our German citizens will vote for the horse-jockey. They remember his action during the late Franco-German war— that little matter of the sale of arms—and they are also mindful of that leader of the late Know-Nothing party, Wilson. Greeley's majority in this State may be safely estimated at 10,000. Booth was elected last, year by over 5000. The city is largely Democratic, but the election of a Republican Congressman is secured by the nomination of a very unpopular and unac ceptable Democrat—literally, one of the unwashed." Respectfully, J. M. S. in E Death of a Distinguished Odd Fellow. On Thursday evening, after a long, lin gering illness, departed this life Josiah Fol ger, a native of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and for the last eight years—since the death of the lamented Henry Bier—grand secre. tary of the order of Odd F'ellows.

Washington, September 6.—The steamer Kansas arrived at Halifax fifteen days from Key West. All well. It may positively be stated that Gurney's commission will award to British claimants in America about $2,000,000. There are over 700 claimauts. The Geneva arbitration will award in gross the amount claimed, excluding indirect damages and expenses of chasing and watching Confederate cruisers which escaped from British waters—about $15,000,000. It has transpired that the government lifts instituted inquiry upon the report that curiously constructed beer casks contained more fluid than they gauged. Government detectives report that the reverse is gener ally practised, and that while the govern ment receives excessive tax, the purchaser is swindled by false measure. The result of the regulations under this order from the Treasury will be. that .beer and ale will be measured and the government and con sumer will be equally protected. 1NEW YORK. A Wife Beaten.

'The steamer Moito Castle, which arrived to-day from Havana, brought Captain Maury and forty one of the survivors of the steamer Bienville. The number of pas sengers saved thus far reported, thirty eight; number of officers and crew, forty six, rnakiDg eighty-four in all that have been saved. The number known to be drowned is nine; the number missing from boat and probably drowned, ten; number unheard from twenty-four; total 127. Captain Maury makes the following re port to tlie agent of the Pacific Mail Steam ship Company: I have to report the total loss, by fire, of the chartered steamship Bienville, under my command, on the morning of August 15, in latitude 25° J2' north, longitude 74° 15' west, by account. At 3:35 A. 5L, August 15, the officer of the watch called me and re E orted that the ship was on fire in ^he fore old. I gave the order to call the crew to fire quarters quietly, and to have the pumps started and the steam turned on to the fire; extinguishers leading into the forehold and forward freight room, at the same time keeping the ship off" before the wind and hauling down the head sails, leaving the head of the jib up and stopping the engines. • Captain Maury says that he had the hose laid down to the fire hatch, and endeavored to get below with water, but so great a vol ume of smoke came out that it was neces sary to clpse the hatch immediately. Then he had the hatches hatted over with wet awnings and started the hose at a venti lator, but the "Isteam pumps were quickly disabled and the water cut off. Meanwhile the fire extinguisher and buckets were raised to keep the fire under, and the boats were made ready and manned: the two large life boats were provisioned and watered and a full supply of life pre servers were served out to all the passen gers. At 5:30 A. M. Captain Maury thought that the fire was so far smothered that he would be enabled to run for Walking's Island, about sixty-five miles distant, but he soon discovered that the fire was work ing its way through both sides of the ship, abreast of the boiler, and that it would be necessary to abandon the vessel. Ihe passengers disembarked, the women and children being equally divided as nearly as possible in each boat. Two boats were safely loaded and pent oft; a third fras also sent off, but was caught under the counter of the ship and capsized.-Ail in iter were rescued and placed in another boat. At 7 A. M. all but two small boats had been loaded and sent off, and there were still more persons on board than the boats could hold. The two small boats were then sent off with passengers, to be distributed among the other boats which had the lightest loads, from which they were to re turn to the ship. By that time the flames had gaiuec such headway, and the heat was so intense that all remaining persons has tened to the boats as quickly as possible, and at 7:30 A. M, Captain Maury left the calun T }'~ fl .? rues - were bursting Rom the lifeboat by,, this time, and the largest filled and •capsized. The sea by the aid of the wreck ™?n,) r™ ' ■\ boit ' which was floating aroimd there, righted and" bailed, they all gOo off. Seven or ten, however, were lost. An account is then given, of their vovage to land, and the landing mf the passengers at Nassau. One boat capsized in the surf and nine persons were drowned. None of the names of the list are known, except Mrs. Grander and her three children. All the bodies were recovered and buried by the authorities of Elutherna Island. There is still one boat missing. She was only moderately loaded. She was one of our best boats, and was well provided with: food, etc. ..The fire broke out between decks, imme diately over the boiler, and not in the fore hold, as it was at first supposed. I am un aole to give the origin of the-fire. A private dispatch from London to-day announces the failure of the mercantile house oi Lamb. Nash & Co., with liabilities amounting to £200,000.
