THE .-TATE HOl -E.
The Senate yesterday passed the joint
r< solution cf Senator Bare!: urging Con
gress lo use its inliaence for tbe suppres
sion of slavery in the island of Cuba. The
resolution goes to the House for concur
rence, and as its purpose is a noble one, it
wi! 1 doubtless pass that body without de
lay; and receiving the signature of Gov
ernor Kellogg, will be immediately for
warded to Washington. It was calitd up
by Sen itor Bareh, who made an eloquent
appeal to the Senate for its adoption. His
speech on the subject will be found on an
inside page of this morning's Kei ublicas.
The committee on contested election
made a report confirming Senator Alexan
der in Iris seat. It was unanimously
adopted.
After the usual executive session the
Senate adjourned until to-day at twelve
o'clock M.
The first business done in the House yes
terday was the consideration of a joint
resolution introduced Jiy Mr. Benbam, ot
Carroll, asking the United States govern
ment to allow the State government of
Louisiana to use the United States Mint in
this city as a State House. Mr. Btnharn
said he introduced the resolution as a re
form measure. If the Mint, not now in use,
couid be used as a State House, it would be
a saving of many thousands of dollars to
this State. Besides, he thought it would he
a matter ot great convenience to the State
government, as it would enable it to have
all the departments of State in one budd
ing. instead of being scattered, as now, in
different places, widely apart. The resolu
tion was read twice and referred to av ap
propriate committee.
Mr. Hahn notified the TTonse that a mem
ber of the special committee appointed to
investigate the a flairs of the park commis
sion had abandoned his duties and gone
ever to the Odd Fellows' Hall Assembly.
He said the name of the gentleman was
Paul .Jones, a name that was likely to be
come historical in more instances than one.
Speaker Lo Well appointed Mr. Gantt, of
St Landry, to take the place of Mr. Jones
on the committee.
Mr. Mathews introduced a joint resolu
tion. which passed, providing lor the pay
ment for services of certain employes of
the General Assembly rendered during the
extra session.
A message iron) the Senate informed the
House that the Senate bad concurred in
House bills Nos. 43 and 46.
Mr. Stewart, of Tensas, introduced a hiii
requiring the New Oileans and Carrollton
Railroad Company to eiiange the grade of
their road. Jt was read twice and referred
to the. Committee on Railroads.
An act to protect citizens iu their rights
under the homestead laws was read twice
and referred.
Mr. Bryant, oi West Baton Rouge, called
up his joint resolution asking for a commit
tee of five—three from the House and two
from the Senate—to examine the Stu®e
House at Batou Rouge and ascertain what
amount of repairs are necessary to place
the building iu order ft r occiij atiou by 'he
State. I; was read and referred to the
Committee on Public Buildings.
Mr. Sewell, of Orleans, introduced a joint
resolution providing for a commission of
seven citizens, not members of the House,
to investigate the allairs of the Mobile and
Chattanooga Railroad Company. The reso
lution was read and a motion made to refer
it to the Committee on Railroads.
Mr. Rodrigues opposed this motion, and
favored the adoption of the resolution at
once. He wanted the affairs of the Mobile
and Chattanooga Railroad Company in
vestigated before he was called upon to
vote lor the bill incorporating the Louisiana
Centra! Railroad Company.
Mr. Sewell and Mr. Rodrigues urged
the adoption of the resolution with so much
warmth and vigor, that other members,
who saw their efforts were but indirect at
tacks < it the hill incorporating the Louis
iana Central Railroad Company, were
brought to their feet.
Mr. Hahn obtained th; floor, aud crit
cieod the resolution in severe terms,
said he could point out several good rea
sons why the resolution in its present shape
should not pass. In the first place, said
the speaker, it asserts that the Chatta
nooga company had been guilty of mu h
wrong, and then asks for a commission
to investigate whether wrong has really
been done. The resolution Mr. Hahn evi
dently thought went too far to receive the
saner I- i. of the House. He gave as another
reason why the resolution should not he
adopted that it provided for the appoint
meat of sever, citizens outside el she ilou.-e
to perform duties that properly lab nged to
members of the body which v.f» asked to
pass the resolution. And another reason
why the resolution should, not pass, said
Mr. Hahn, is that if Would be casting a slur
upon the Speaker of the House, who has
already appointed committees to do the
work that the resolution r, question weald
create a commission outside of this House
to do. Mr. Hahn said the proposition to do
this w; d g pot oniy a slur upon the Speaker
of the House, but it was also a slur upon
ti e members of the House, lie alluded to
other objectionable features in the resolu
tion, and among them he instanced the au
thority it gives the oon-mis-iou to appoint
counsel to do work that properly belongs
to the Attorney Genera! of the State. Mr,]
Hahn was under the Impression counsel

Pending the discussion of the Louisiana

adjourned until twelve o'clock to-day,
AN INDIGNATION MEETING
CARROLLTON STB LET RAILROAlJ
Capital, vs. corporation
Outraged capital and indignant iuteiii
genet- met in Carrollton last evening, in an'
adjourned meeting, to protest against the
management or mismanagement of the rail
load which commences on Baronne, at
Canal street, running to and from Carroll
ton.
The meeting w as held in Hickok's Hotel,
and was attended by some of our best eiti
z; ns, who now declare that they have suf
fered as much an ! as far as human nature
can bear, without offering an emphatic
protest.
For years past this road has had its own
manner of serving the public, and its con
duct has not given satisfaction to those, who
patronize it.
Gentlemen who represent capital an 1
intelligence. ,n anticipation of procur
ing speedy and cheap transportation j
from • points between Carrollton and I
New Orleans, purchased expensive prop- j
erlies on St. Charles street, and
constructed tine residences. They in
vested their money, fully expecting that
the railroad corporation would never fail
in abiding by its charter. In this these
gentlemen have been sadly dismpp.dated.
They have had cause Sor innumerable com
plaints, ami as there existed no pro.-peet

The meeting was called to order by Mr j

je.-t.
Mr. A. J'aiacio wag ,
Mr. Bureau!: acted as se--rotary.
The report of th:; committee
and is as follows:
AVueubas, The Carrollton JlaiTmad Con.
pany has tor some time past, violated

contract with the State of Louisiana and
ordinance No, •' oi the City Council ot j
New Orleans, approved May JO, IStib, j
wherein they agreed to run their cars once 1
in five minutes ironi daylight till 10 P. >1., I
nd every half hour from 10 P. M. until
midnight; also to keep the streets and
bridges ou Baronne-street and Triton walk
in good order; also ordinance No. 110 of the
Council of the City of Jefi'eison, approved j
J une 4. 1*50, wherein it agrees and binds!
itself to clean out the ditches on Louisiana
and Napoleon avenues, and give an hourly
conveyance to and from said avenues to
New Orleans, for the privilege of running
horse cais on these avenues; and
Whereas, The Carrollton Railroad Com
pany has never fulfilled their contract with
the State of Louisiana, made bv them in
their charter, and approved February 0,
1833; for the term of fifty years, wherein
they agree to conicrm to the iinesaudlevels
of the different corporations through which
said railroad passes, but have built an-T
maintained most of said road from one to
two and a hall feet above the grade «>f the
streets in the Sixth District, thereby mak
ing it impassible for heavy hauliu. ; unit.
Whereat; The Council of the lain city
of Jefferson, in 18b7. passed an otdinauce
ordering said company to lower said road to
conform tot! e gr. de ofthestre* ton ea fc side
ot said railroad through tfie limits oi Jeffer
son city; and.
Whereas. As said company refused to
comply to said demand, they have « daily
violated their charter; and.
Wherea a , It can be cleat ly proven that it
was not on account of tin: epizooty that, the
cars have not been run all tiio Time
(with ti<e exception of three days) accord*
ing t > their charter. a3 several parties t:ied
to hire their cars and rm theiu according
to the charter of said road: and
Whereas, This is a matter of vital im*
portauce, cot only to the • ities of New Or!
leans and Carrollton, but to all living along
the line of said road; and
Whereas, on fuv mut of the Irregularities
in the running of said road, quite a number
of residents are removing from the upper
portion of tho city, thereby deteriorating
ihe value of all property; au-1 nor only <*ar
selves but ladies are compelled to change
ears at Napoleon a' euue, and often, as of
late, iu a tremendous rain storm, not oniy
ruining their dresses bur endangering their
health an-i lives; and
Wher as. Said io,i! fs of vital import
ance to tbe sitizeris living along its lint,
and might be made a source of large reve
nue to the city of New Orleans aud Car
roil ton, provided its charter is annulled and
the right- of way sold to the highest bidder;
therefore, be it
Resolved, That we memorialize the G n

e veral ways, principally in failing to place
a sufficient number of ears on the line to
accommodate the patrons.
Mr. Furcell spoke in detail of the grie
vances citizens had borue for years, and
was anxious to see a reformation. During
the time the epizooty was raging everybody
w T as willing to forgive all shortcomings,
but now that that calamity has passed
away, we must have all that the company's
charter calls fur.
I he meeting was composed of gentlemen
who are fully competent to speak, and their
protests must be heeded. Otherw ise, manv
oi the best residents along the line and in
Carrollton w ii! seek koines in more favored
localities. It is expected that the new
board of managers will find more accommo
dating subordinates, and pay stricter atten
tion to the necessities of cash patrons.
The meeting last night was not child's
play, but meant sturdy business. Jt is e\i"
dent that the causes oi' complaint were well
founded.
Another meeting will he held in a few

The Coming Festival.
Information received from public and
private sources at the North and West, in

New Orleans duiiug the carnival seasou,
and housekeepers had better commence
making preparations accordingly. In

railroad lines intend reducing the tariff «>f
fares in obedience to the proclamation of
"Rex." we may count assuredly upon at
least one week oi counnerei.il prosperity.

In ether and older cities this idea is bit
ter understood and more extensively acted
upon. Whatever, either in the nature of
substantial work or unsubstantial display,
invites visitors to a city should invariably
be encouraged and aided. Duly lately
$.ui0.000 were promptly subscribed by the
merchants ot Boston for a musical jubilee,
ail expecting to be remunerated by .a*
creased business, aud in tins they
were not disappointed. We believe
a similar object aud motive ani

aud in this he is deserving ot liberal as*
aistance. Certainly, everybody was loud

there need be no pause iu the good v.t.-ik

of a permanent institution in which New
Orleans is destiued to f die great pride.
While upon the subject we would depre
cate pointedly the disposition manifested
by certain classes nt tradespeople to take
advantage eif the tttwssRtea of bis majesty
to extort higher rates for their wares and
