Local lnte!liqenc 0 . —. •« Very Sharp. —On the last down trip of the steamboat J. T. Moore a rather stylish looking young man was a passenger, mak ing it understood that he was on his way from Shreveport to Philadelphia, giving his name as T. Ridgeway Couely. Accompany ing him was a pretty young woman, who ■was represented as the wife. During the voyage he called on <he clerk for money, once for $10 and ano'her time for $90. for which he gave, drafts on the firm of Messrs. A. Bruher & Co, Jefferson, Texas. On reaching New Orleans the clerk presented the dralts to a branch house here, when the papers were pronounced forgeries. The vivacious young man has disappeared, as also has the handsome woman, who, it is supposed, is not his wile. Several police inquiries have failed to find the Conely or the female. ___ Silver Spoons and Forks— Detective Ward arrested Stephen Medd for obtaining goods under false pretenses. Accused called at the residence of an acquaintance on Poeytarre street, saying that a lady ac quaintance was about to give a party, and •wished to borrow some silver forks and spoons. Ills story was believed, and the lady handed out'the articles. It is said that Medd immediately walked down to a pawnbroker's office in the Second District aud pawned the spoons aud forks for a small sum of money, but the broker handed over the goods to the owner. Cards and Death.— Sunday evening Henry Dickson and Joseph Williams were playing cards in a house near the river and a mile ami a half above Carrollton. A dis pute concerning the game arose between them, when Williams, in a violent passion, stabbed Dickson to the heart, killing him almost instantly. Williams was arrested. Both are laboring men. Drowned in Lake Pontohartrais —A Singular CVi**.—Saturday night a fancy ball was given at the Oakland House on Metairie ridge, attended by some last men and women. A party of five, three men and two women, left the ball to go to the lake and take a sail. Tiie men's names are Harry Weeks. Uabe B*ebe, Robert Swain and H. M. Riddle. Before reaching the lake they were hailed by Edward Mur phy, sometimes called Candy Murphy, who asked to join the party. He was taken in, being well known to all except Riddle. J. Martin also joined the excursionists. All except Kiddle and Beebe are sporting meu, frequenters of lower St. Charles street, Murphy the most notorious of the number. It is stated that most of the party had been drinking wine freely, and were under the influence of it at the time. There was some difficulty in passing out of the mouth oi the cana', owing to a tolerably strong wind. When on tie- lake Murphy became oois.ter ous and demonstrative, rather rudely hut familiarly a-sailiug Mr. Riddle, who did not rdish the conduct, and remonstrated with Murphy. Shortly after ward Murphv was overboard, thrown there, Martin and Weeks state, by Riddle. Weeks, who understands how to handle a boat, immediately made great efforts to put about, but the rudder became disarranged aud unserviceable. Ali this time Murphy was floundering around in the water, apparently aware of the peril he was in, occasionally calling out. **Harry, tor God's sake, save me if you c iu !" Weeks was quite helpless, having no oars, nor even a paddle, but he he managed to tear a strip of board from the boat, » hu h he used to very little ad vantage. Toe boat was fully a quarter of a mile from Murphy when he sank, drowned. < l ie or more of the party directly charged li; idle with murder, aud he was handled roughly, as his appearance testifies. Fortunately a small steamer passed near the boat and, those on hoard discovering the terrible situation, went to the rescue, towing the yacht into the canal. Sergeant Taylor was there and immediately took charge of Riddle, taking him to the first precinct staMonliouse. Accused made the tollowiug statement wlu n in the cell: • I was at the bail at the Oakland House, and in the morning Weeks asked rue if 1 would go with a party to sail. I said I would, and five of us. two women, who were with Weeks, Gabe Beebe, and myself went and took a boat, and w hen we reached the end of the canal. Candy Murphy, ami another man—I don't know his name, hailed as, and we tacked and took him aboard. The whole crowd were pretty drunk, and we were 'skylarking' aud fooling, and when some distance out in the lake. Candy Murphy tell overboard. I have no idea in the world a- t ■ how the accident happened We tried to tack the boat, when the rudder unshipped, and before we could reach Mur phy he had drowned. Weeks then said to me", vou are the enuse of this, and I was knocked down and kicked -ensefctss. When we came to the whart. Weeks told tue that if i' hud not been f u the women lie would havo thrown me overboard. This is trulv ali I can state about the matter." As the siat' meets made by both sides varied so materially, it was deemed best to arrest the entire p irty, which Captain Flanagan succeeded in cloirg. Riddle holds the position of harbormaster at the Lake Mud ol the New c anal. When the matter comes up tor examination before the re corder, We will probably obtain something j ; j ce the truth. Murphy's body was not re covered. __________ Criminal Court— Henry Wilson, eon vieted of st* aiing seventy-five cents worii «>t brass, w is brought up for sentence. The judge tecogi izi-d him as an old offender who l ad serveo a term in the Penitentiary, and gave him s , me wholesome advice as to his habit 1 f pb king up things that don't belong to him.

The communication concerning rowdy bovn, corner of Annette and Lnjuhait streets, is received, and due attention given it. _ __ The Racks To Day.— The recent rains have made the track quite muddy, but that will not prevent carrying out the pro gramme. There will be three contests, all good ones, aud bringing out several well known horses. A hurdle race, five entries, mile and a quarter lor all ages, and the Louisiana stake for all ages. At pool sale last evening in the first race, i ill age Blacksmith sold for $200, Blind Tom fid, and the field for $51. In the second race Cape Race brought $100, C. O. D. $o5, Frogtown $32, and the others very small sums. In the third race Jenning's entry (Silent Friend) sold for $100, London, $200, Fannie M. $18-5, Young Harry $55, Belle Buckle $ 15. All the contestants are said to be in tolerably fair condition, and there is considerable interest taken in each race. Harry Pearson.—A genial, whole-souled, clever gentleman, a thorough actor, with so much human nature about him that the most stilted critic would never he guilty of dub bing him an "artist," is to have a benefit on Wednesday niglu. We refer to Harry Pearson, ot course. His bill is a good one, humor and pathos being intermingled in proportions so equit able as to maintain interest and exclude all weariness for the evening. We promise all who attend, and all theatre-goers should, as full satisfaction as we expect personally, and it is on few occasions of like nature we would risk such an assurance. Our State Fair.—W e are most happy to learn, through Mr. Luther Homes, the sec retary of the Mechanics' and Agricultural Fair Association of Louisiana, that the ap proaching State fair, which commences in New Orleans on the twenty-third of the present month, is likely to draw hither a larger number of visitors lrom every direc tion than was ever before congregated here upon a similar occasion. The Republican records this information with far more than ordinary satisfaction, because it inspires the belief that the noble efforts of the gentle men who have laborod so assiduously to make our State fair a permanent institution are likely to be crowned with success. Louis iana can .justly claim the credit of having led off, under the direction of some ot her most enterprising citizens, "in the attempt to awaken tiie public mind ot the South, and direct it into productive channels." Previous to the civil war, which proved so disastrous to the Southern States ot tiie Union, State fairs were seldom beard ol in the South. They were known to be popu lar and useful institutions in the Northern, Western and Eastern States ot the Union, and in European countries, hut they were not then deemed necessary here to stimulate a spirit of friendly rival ry among our agriculturists, manu facturers, artisans, mechanics and stock raisers, because a system ot slave labor predominated and confined Louisiana to the production of sugar and cotton. But directly after the close of the war the present officers and directors ot our Fair Association, feeling that something was necessary to stimulate a spirit of skilled industry in every branch of business aud among all classes of our people, took steps which led to the establishment of the Me chanics' and Agricultural Fair Associa tion of Louisiana. Ample grounds were purchased, delightfully located within a short distance of the city, aud improved regardless of expense. The first Mate iair was held in 1806, ancl attracted a large at tendance of people, not only from our own State, but tram abroad. Since that time the association lias continued to progress in the good work, holding annually a .State fair and making each year such improve ments as were deemed necessary to add either to the usefulness or beauty of the lair grounds, until they have arrived at a state of perfection that gives goodly prom ise that the seventh grand State fair will prove a grander art cir than any that has preceded it. The list of premiums is most comprehen sive—embracing over twenty thousand dol lars—to be distributed among the most successful exhibitors of goods. Ten thou sand dollars has been set apart for objects of special interest not provided for in the published list. But this is by no means tiie chief inducement for men to come to our State fair and exhibit their goods. Every business man is well aware of the value of advertising his goods, and if he brings them to our State fair, where they will be exposed to the view of tiie thousands of people who will congregate there for the express purpose ot inspecting everything that is be see n, lie secures a most valuable means of advertising his goods; a means that will bring them to the direct notice ot merchants and planters of this ancl adjoin ing S'ates. Besides the directors assure exhibitors that every thing will bo done to make the coming State fair a complete success. They have already entered into arrangements with many of the principal railroad lines, steamboats and steamships, throughout the country, at spec ial rates lor passengers, and articles tor exhibition, that will enable visitors to come to our city witli but little co.-1. A now feature has also been added to the coming fair that can not tail to prove in teresting. A grand lottery will be drawn on the- Fair Grounds, under the auspices of tlie Louisiana State Lottery Company, for the relied of tiie Fair Grounds A-sociation. Tliis lotteiy will embrace 803 prizes— amounting to $37.500—tiie capital prize of which will b ■ $530) in gold. The tickets will hi sold for fifty Ce nts etch.and will entitle the bolder to one admission to tint fair. The association will issue two lyjndn d thousand tickets of this kind, with a oou pi n attached to each, bearing a number. When tiie tick'd is used tor gaining ad mission to the fair the* holder will detaedi the coupon and preserve it until after the, lotteiy, which takes place on the last clay of the fair. If tiie ticket draws a prize the coupon will he evidence that he or site, as the case may be. is entitled to it. Tbe prospect of gain will doubtless induce many to buvtnore tickets to the fair than they would otherwise, and for this reason it must la- conceded the Fair Association nave hit upon a fortunate way to make the fair a success.

Second District Court. Succession of A. Constant Hearing.—Rule taken by the creditors for Mrs. Widow Hea ring to show cause why the claims against certain insurance companies should not be included in the inventory. Hearing on ex ceptions to rule. The policies were for the benefit of Hearing's wife, children and brother-in-law. It was a gift to them, and complete when the policies were issued. It is a settled ptinciple of law that a man has an insurable inteiest in his life. In the Supreme Court of Pei nsylvania. Judge Sharswood said: "For myself. I can see no reason why a man having an insura hie interest may not im-ure it aud present the policy as a gift to a friend; ami if such an agreement to give be made at the very time'of the contract, why may n< t the pol icy be made at once in the name ot the donee, the whole transaction being bona tide—no fraud being intended on the com pany?'' Exceptions sustained and rule dis charged. Fourth District Court. James McCracken, administrator, vs. James Madison Wells.—The rule taken herein on the seventh of March. 1873, by plaintiff's counsel, requiring W. P. Harper, sheriff, to show cause why he should not seize the rents of the property seized in this suit, having been tried before me, received thereafter my careful examination and con sideration, I am of opinion that a sale only can dissolve the lease held by Henry Abel. The seizure can not work the legal result attributed to it by plaintiff's counsel. Rule discharged. FiTih District Court. Jesse K. Bell vs. Thomas P. Leathers.— The defendant in this case sued the plain tiff August 28, 1871, aud obtained an at tachment on the customary affidavit that the defendant was about to leave the State. This suit is for damages. The court cited on the question the following authorities: 3 R.. p. 17; 0 It., 337; 5 An., 711; 8 A., 12; 12 A , 332; 13 An., 372; 15 A., 421 and 625. aud It;'A . 252. In all these, it will be found that it was held to be incumbent on the plaintiff to show the absence of probable eau 3 e for the acts complained of. In this case the proof is satisfactory on this point. Mr. Bell was shown to be almost entirely free front debt, with a fortune that would have paid thirty or forty times as much as he owed Captain Leathers. He had not sold any part of his property, nor is it shown that he ever proposed to do so. In tne Fourth Wendell reports, malice is defined to be "an imputation of law from the fal s e and injurious nature of the charge." In a late case decided by our Supreme Court, to wit: Louis Charles Per ret vs. the New Orleans Times , and in the more early case ol Miller vs. Holsteid, 16 L., 389, it was held that action of slander may be maintained without proving dam ages. It is impossible for witnesses to com pute in money the injury done to the feel ings and pride of a gentleman whose char acter is pure and unimpeachable. Such was the ruling of this court in the case of Louis Stern vs. Philip Hoelzel, lately de cided. The evidence discloses some malice on the one hand and some injury to feelings on the other, which, under the law and the light of precedent, make it imperative on the court to award damages for attorney's fees in tiie sunt of two hundred and titty dollars, with costs of these proceedings. Sixth District Court. Schmidt & Zeigler vs. M. J. Goubert, Margaret Sneil, intervenor.—Mrs. Margaret Snell, defendant's wife, intervenes and claims the property attached as being her own, exhibiting as her title thereto a nota rial transfer made to her by her husband, in partial satisfaction of a judgment ob tained by her against him in the Fourth District Court on the fourth of January last. An examination of the record upon which she relies shows that she instituted her suit against her husband before the Seventh District Court, in December, 1872; that, un der the law organizing the Superior District Court, the suit was transferred to the Fourth District Court on the seventeenth of December; that on the same day a judg ment. by default was taken, which was con tinued anil made final cm the fourth of January, 1873; that on that day ilelendant appeared in court iu person and "waived the delays for the signing of the, judgment herein rendered, and also waived an appeal therefrom and consented to the s'guiug of said judgment." The question is whether a judgment th'js obtained and executed is recognized by the law as against third persons, creditors ol the husband at 'he time of its rendition. Article 2127, Criminal Code, provides that separation of property must he petitioned for and ordered by a court of justice after hearing all parties. It can in no case he referred to arbitration. Every voluntary separation of property is null, both as re spects third persons, and the husband and wile between themselves. This article has been held to impose upon the judge the duty to require such evidence of the facts alleged as is sufficient to satisfy his mind of the parties. 6 A. 630. It con templates a serious litigation between tiie parties; a contest by the defendant, and testimony taken contradictorily in support of the demand, not the loose and meagre evidence presented in some cases, nor the general, sweeping and exaggerated declara tions of witness, in others, made ex parte and frequently out of the presence of the judge. The testimony of the defendant, Hum bert, shows that there was no necessity for suit of his wife. His indebtness amounts to about $900, including the claim of the plaintiffs, which is over $600. He was nut pressed by bis creditors. Tho evidence is. on the contrary, that he was not threatened with suits, aud that his friends were will ing to give him credit. There was as litrie necessity for the unseemly haste with which the proceedings were conducted. Jlidgment lor plaintiff's. Intervention dis missed. United S>tiites Circuit Court.
