The enterprise seem* to have been predicated oa the saute prin ciple and inaugurated in good part by the sains parties with the Credit Mobilise. 2n each ease a few enteprising individuals took hold and appealed to certain .State legislature* to grant bonds and franchise*. These individuals advanced money to con duct these applications, but they did not subscribe for stock payable pro rata on requisition. The money put in by the incorporator* was to bo reimbursed them Iron, the proceed* ot State or city bonds. The "dividend*" ot this company would have, like the "dividend*" of the Credit Mobilier, consisted «t the surplus of State bonus or public land* left alter con struction of tlie road vrestol the Mississippi There i» this philosophy in the sale at.d transfer of the road. It will t-e purchased bv other parties at rates below cost, and, disencumbered of former incumbrances, wilj have a credit sufficient for extension to its western terminus. This will bo attended with loss to the State it is true, but in her present aspect of affairs the road should have been constructed. As tho incorporators were hanking exclusively npon the securities granted as a subsidy, the sudden decline of these securities rendered it impossible to complete the road from suck resources. The stockholders being under no legal obligations to pay on requisition, have thrown np their cliurter. or so much of it as relates to them. No other prospect of constructing the road presents itself. All will look with anxiety to tho sale and transfer of this road, t; is to bo hoped it will fall into able and ener getic hands. Billiards. A still larger audience than that of Mon day assembled at Harmony Hall last eve ning. to witness tho second game of tho match, between Messrs. Ubasay aud Miller. The player* had reason to congratulate themselves on the characterof the audience, it being composed almost entirely of re spectable gentlemen who showed their re gard for the nerves of their entertainers by refraining from all disturbance. The game was very long, lasting over three hours. Both players used great caution and judgment, but only four absolutely «aiety shots were made during the game Miller made his tirst string in the t welftb inning, Ubassy being far behind. From this till the twenty-fourth inning, when Ubassy run Id. making him ■•7. the counts were very small.

Wednesday matinee to-day. Fri day evening, farewell complimentary bene fit to Mr. Lawrence Barrett. Miss Isabel Freeman. The following, from the, Cincinnati Com mercial, shows that our popular towns woman is receiving the appreciation "out West" that her merits so justly entitle her to : Miss Isabel Freeman and Mr. George Byer opened an engagement last night at Robinson's 0[>era House to a handsome aud appreciative audience. The play was an adaptation from the Parisian sensation "The Centenarian," a society drama of the intense order, like "Frou Frou," with adultery for its corner-stone, though, in truth, until the closing scene, it was diffi cult to sav certainly that it was not the milder grade of that grave ofiense. Miss Freeman sustained the character of Camille Faurel very admirably. She is an actress of unusual force and power, ot graoetul presence and bearing, and exceptionally clear aud vigorous in her elocution. Mr. Uyer is an old favorite here in the charac ter of an old man, and he made a grand success of the hale old centenarian. Ttie performers were called before the curtain quite a number of times during the evening, and the play was warmly ap plauded at its close. Louisiana Jockey ("mb. In consequence of the in i .nency of the weather yesterday, the rices advertised were postponed. The programme of yes, terduy will he observed to-day.

Misa Lewis, the colored sculptress, who claims America as her courtry and Home as her abiding place, is going to be married seen. FKOJV1 OKANT PARISH HOKRtBLK MASSACRE MANY COLORED MEN KILLED 1 nw WHITE MEN WOUNDED Boat* which arrived from Red river yes terday afternoon brought the intelligence that the reeent turmoil in Grant parish had resulted in a deadly combat and the sacri fice of many live*. Report* that obtained currency were highly colored, and doubtless some time will elapse before the truth ia really known it U beyond question, however, that the courthouse at Colfax had® been burned, and a largo number of colored mea massacred by a party under the lead en-iiip ©t Mr. Hadnot, who was himself wounded severely in the abdomen As soon as the new* of the terrible affair reach General Emory * headquarters, the commanding officer at Baton Rouge was telegraphed to send a company of troop* immediately to tho euene of the conflict, which order was promptly obeyed, and the troop* ieit last e veiling oa a passing steamer. Air, R. G. Hi!', of Marshal. Texas, a pas senger on the Southwestern, furnished the Time* with a written account of the affair, from which we make brief extracts; Sunday night, shortly after dark, the boat landed at a wood pile about a mile above Colfax, Grant parish, and a young follow, armed to the teeth and very much excited, came aboard aud requested the captain to land at Colfax and take some wounded white men to Alexandria, about twenty five mile* further down the river. On arriving at Colfax we found about a hundred armed men on the bank, and most of the passengers, myself among the num ber, went ashore to view the "battle ground." for our young friend w ho came aboard at the wood pile informed us "that ii' we wanted to see dead niggers, here was a chance, for there were a hundred or so scattered over the village and tbe adjacent fields," and he kindly offered to guide us to the scene of action. Aitnost as soon as wo got to the top of the landing, sure enough, we began to stumble on them, most of them lying on their faces, and. as I oould see, by the dim ; light of the lanterns, riddled with bullets. • » o » • * ft When we came back near the landing the boat's crew was carrying aboard the two wounded white men, a Mr. Hadnot and another whose name I did not learn. In a storehouse near the landing were some twenty or thirty negro prisoners, all huddled together in a corner, with a strong guard over them. 1 asked one of the guards if I could have some talk w.th the negroes, but was rather roughly refused. Air. Hadnot was wounded m the abdomen, not seriously, however, for I was informed by one ol the surgeons who Lad him in charge that he extracted the bail, and that be did not think his intestines were cut. The other white man had a desb wound in the shoulder. Several other white men bad slight flesh wounds in different parts of their bodies. The two wounded men, the surgeon and a sou of Mr. Hadnot came down as far as Alexandria, where wa landed early Moi* day morning. &ineo the meeting on Sunday the week party tinder Hadnot. it is stated, had been reinforced froia adjoining parishes, and Sunday morning they moved on Colfax in » body and demanded a surrender of the courthouse, which wa* refused Tbe at tacking party opened a vigorous fire, and finally succeeded .n setting the courthouse on fire. Many were killed la the burning building, aud other*, w h ie attempting to escape, were shot down. The following statement of Captain Jacobs, of file steamer Fioutbwestern, we Cory from the Picayune: We arrived at Colfax on Sunday evening about eight o'clock, and found that the w bite people, and the sheriff. 1 suppose, at their head, had captured the town, alter having had a conflict with tho negroes. It was re ported to me that about 100 negroes had been killed and many wounded. We saw from the boat about eighteen or twenty lying around on the bank* dead. One white uian was reported killed, whose name I did not learn, and two very seri ously wounded, Messrs. Hadnot and Harris. Mr. Hadnot w as shot through the bowels, and it is supposed that he is mortally wounded. We brought Messrs. Harris and Hadnot down from Colfax to Alexandria. Three, or lour other white men were slightly wounded. About one hundred negroes escaped, but it was reported that the whites were still pursuing them. Ail of the leaders of the riot escaped, especially the white men. The negroes ambuscaded themselves iu the courthouse, and the whites, finding that there was no other mode of attack left them, set fire to the building. The whites numbered in the neighborhood of one hun died and fifty men. The fight lasted from about 12 M. until nearly fi I*. M. The whites are now in possession of Colfax, and when l left, late last Sunday night, every thing was very quiet.

The West Baton Rouge Sugar Planter copies the ad vice given h i* readers by J mlge Head, of the Sparta Time.}, and concludes; Gradually, however, the masse* will ac quiesce in the views entertained by Judge Head and will not alone pay their taxes, but give aid and encouragement to the State government as it now exists. As we have stated on several occasions, it' the people will consult their orvn and the in terest of the State, they will at once with draw their opposition to Governor Kt-liogg and unite witli him for the benefit of all. The Baton Rouge Gazette-Comet speak# well of the new city officer* appointed by Governor Kellogg, claiming that the local compromise has nothing to do with tl.e question ol McEnery's right to the gover norship. As an evidence that the bulk of the Democracy think so, too, -t publishes the result of the recent election for city officers, where, out of Democratic voters uul v fiftv-five cast a ballot, the Republicans not participating.

Three of those elected are colored. We understand that a comparatively small number of colored votes was polled, and tho colored memhe** were elected as much or more by while vote* as by colored. The colored members, we believe, arc* all tax payers, aud the entire board is composed o 1 good men and law-abiding citizens."

The cotton was turned over to the govern ment on the twenty-fifth of July. Oa the twenty-fourth the President had issued a proclamation removing the restrictions on trade iu the district where the cotton was delivered -the Red river district—and on that day was tiled in the State Department, but was not ptomulgated through the pub lic press until the twenty-sixth. The court of claims held that it was not valid until published, and not published until promulgated. As stated, this court reversed that judgment, with directions to the court of claims to enter judgment lor the appellant, holding that the only way to guard against mischiefs arising from the uncertainty of parole pioof as to the time of publication .is to apply the same legal presumption to proclamations that is ap plied to statutes: that is. that they had a valid existence at the beginning of the day of their date, and in the absence of fraud to permit no inquiry on the subject.
