The Eighth Anniversar; Although yesterday was the eighth acni versary of the Sixth District (City of Jef ferson) fire dopartinent it must not be un derstood that that section has not had a fire brigade many more than that number ot years. For instance. Pioneer No. 1 has existed just a score and two years. This iast celebration was made under somewhat adverse circumstances, yet it did not fall behind former efiorts in any respect. The grand marshal was Mr. Eugene May, with Messrs. Henry It. Arbo. Peter Blessey, II. F. Davis, Joseph Caillot. C. J. Fox, F, VV. Blessey and John Weiss as aids. These gentlemen were splendidly mounted, all looking the picture of manhood. Chief Engineer H. P. Phillips aud his assistants, George Peltz and J. Munch, fol' lowed, perfect samples of 5remen. The leading company was Pioneer No. 1 with a fine steam engine, ' which was elegantiy decorated with flowers. There were so many men on the ropes that it was hard to count them, and they all cheerfully entered into the festivities. In the line were noticeable Messrs. John Garstkamp and Philip Draube, who always take a deep interest in the company, and are always prompt in working or in playing. The company is in a fair condition ia every respect. The olEcf-rs are: Frank Leidenheimer, prefident; John Garstkamp. vice president: L. Englander, secretary; John Altenholer, assistant secretary; Christopher Scbopp treasurer; Jacob Gossenberger, foreman Philip Draube and George Powell, assist ants: W. Lehman, steward; Louis Heim, house keeper; Jaoob Vonhafer, Conrad Hahn, V. Keith and John Geiss, marshals. After the parade the boys marched to the residence of Mr. Vonhafer, and partook of a hearty dinner. Home Hook and Ladder No. 1 was out bright and early, in full force, first march ing to the residence of Mr. J. H. A. Leon to receive an elegant wreath from that gentle man's little daughter. Elodie. The pretty miss made the presentation speech cun ningly, and Mr. C- C. Piper responded for the company. Visiting the house of Mr. C C. Piper, they were the recipients of a new set of harness for their favorite horses That was not all, as Mrs. John Michel had a beautiful basket of flowers for them, aud Mrs. Eugene May provided a wreath. The organization was formerly a military company, and after the war resolved itself into the above, aud has done excellent ser. vice as civilians. Eugene May. president; W. II. Zimmer man, vice president; J. A. II. DeLeon, sec retary; T. Daliigr, treasurer; C. C. Piper, foreman: C. G. Marks and A. Barbour, assistants; J. Jagot, steward; Henry C. Brown. J. T. Aycock and George Godfrey, marshals. With this company was a complete set of juniors, a second edition of their elders They have a very complete truck, ladders, etc., presented by Mr. Charles Johnson These juniors are eons ot the main company^ all uniformed, and is certainly the 6olidest and best equipped company of lads ever seen in this section. Parents were proud of their young firemen. Charles Johnson, president, J. II. Iahaify, vice president; J. A. DeLeon, secretary; W. H. Zimmerman, easurer; Clifford Zimmerman, foreman M. T. Johnson and B. Brinks, assistants. When dismissed both companies returned to their truck Louse, where a rare dinner had been provided by the marshals. They had guests from Nos. 12, G, Star Hook and Ladder, the St. Bernard company and Car rollton No. i. Before the procession started Mr. Zim merman. for the company, presented their housekeeper. M. O'Connor, with a fireman's badge? for his zeal and efficiency in office. Protector No. ~ was fully up to its former style and made a splendid display, having a beautiful host) carriage to show otf. The steamer was neatly decorated, on the bunker resting a mammoth bouquet, pre sented and made by Mrs. J. C. Baeh_ streamers on the steamer welcomed Wash ington No. 20, aud six white horses assisted seventy tine looking men to pall the machine. This was all very fine, but the hose carriage wa3 the attraction. A forest of silverware, smothered in flowers and wreaths, all neatly arranged, made up well. Mrs. Cnevaliy had f urnished a wreath and flowers in abundance. With this company were guests from Nos. 20, 8, 2 and G. Alt6. gather or singly the Protectors retain their well earned reputation. J. C. Bach, president; E. W. Young, vice president; L. Cormier and S. F. Parmelee. secretaries; Joseph Cox, treasurer; D. Wicker, foreman; George Acker and X. Miller, assistants; F. Fliers, housekeeper, B. Burst, engineer; J. O. Landry, James Sweeney and Henry Ellerman. marshals. After the parade members and guest, returned to the enginehouse, where that goodly caterer, Astredo, had provided a tempting dinner. Young America No. Jhad its hand engine in mourning for the death of one of its leading members. However, the wreath presented by Mr. Faiber was a relief, and then each man looked the fireman. No. 3 is thoroughly equipped in every respect, and having a hand engine, can occasionally render service where the steamers can not work. J. Faibre. president; Peter Rahem. vice president; John I'atsdorf, secretary: M. Maithos, treasurer; F. Geiss, foreman, J Undiriner and J. Botts, assistants; H. Eoil ley, housekeeper; J. Stents and Henry Weiser. marshals. The company closed the day at the festive board. The display, as a whole, was certainly creditable, and elicited great praise ail along the line of march. Thousands and thousands of citizens lined the banquettes* rejoicing to see that the department is etill thriving. Our chief engineer, T. O'Connor, took dinner with Home Hook and Ladder, and offered the following toast: "May the Sixth District fire department continue to increase in numbers add efficiency until it arrives at the position held by the New Orleans de partment—second to none on this conti nent.'' Chief Engineer Phillips was presented by Young America No. 3 with a fine gold medal in token of their appreciation ot him as an officer and gentleman. Protector's ball at night was perfectly successful, but time prevents the reporter giving details. IS OSTRACISM HONEST A NATCHITOCHES INCIDENT AN HONEST DEMOCRAT APPOINTED TAX COLLECTOR. ASSAULTED AND DRIVEN AWAY HIS NEIGHBORS. BY A Good Case of Wiiiie Leaarne Inte^ri FOOD FOR SENATORIAL REFLECTION For the careful consideration of every one who either has or desires to have an opinion based on substantial foundation on the White League assertion that Republi cans are socially accredited on their p sonal qualifications, a plain statement of facts is here presented. It has been stated over and over again, ia every possible way in the newspapers, in courts and committee rooms, from the pulpit and on the stump in public and private, that no man :u Lou isiana suffered solely for his political opin ions. In the face of a stark and ghastly record to the contrary, ranging from the mute testimony of those who are said to walk silently and alone for opinion's sake to the crying out of the very atones against the spillers of the blood that stained them, t this assertion has been repeatedly made that from the force of re iteration it has become an article of faith. Men who would scorn to do an act their conscience condemned, with hearts full of kindness to their brethren, who, separa'.. from the influence of prejudice, would give their all to further a kind or merciful deed not only believe this, but have aided by words of approval the very acts which by their cruel and merciless result have proved the contrary. The extent to which this idea that Republican or Northern man suffers noth ing, merely because he is a Republican, has blinded men in viewing the question, is beyond the power of words to express. The feeling is so strong that at times a fair hear, ing is utterly unattainable. For these reasons all should mark well these few unadorned facts. In the parish of Natchitoches Mr. C. C. Puckette has spent the greater portion of Ills life. lie was born in Louisiana, has always been a Democrat, was a candidate for the Senate ou the Fusion ticket, and took his seat and acted with the McEnery Senate. lie was a property-holder, was an old editor, and his honesty none could ques tion. He was fully identified in the com pletest scope of that slang phrase with the people of his parish. Acting on the repre sentation that all that was needed to satisfy the opposition was the tilling of offices wit honest men—men in harmony and ident lied with the people — Governor Kel Iogg appointed this mm tax col lector of that parish. Ia that parish there are certain levies which have been over and over again denounced as ilie and declared to be maue for the sole pur pose of filling dishonest Republican carpet bags. Nevertheless there is significant and uncontradicted testimony tending to show the benefits of this levy would accrue others than Republicans. Mr. Tuckette whether as a Democrat believing the Dam ocratic campaign cry that these levies were dishonest because made by Republicans, or as an honest man being convinced by legi timate evidence, refused to press the tax payers therefor. Mark the result. A Democratic mob ii mediately inaugurated the work of pers cuting. maltreating and driving away this Democratic tax collector who refused to collect what was denounced by Democrats as a earpet-bag and rascally Republican attompt at knavery. lie was threa'ened, assaulted and beaten. Every Democrat who had signed his bond withdrew his name. The leadership of this outrage was assumed or thrust upon the editor ot the Vindicator, and he performed his task with Democratic vindictiveness. To save his life Mr. Puckette, bruised and sufterin, tied to New Orleans to call on the Governor or protection. Here is a man driven from his home, his parish and his duties, because La is an offi ialof the present government of Louisiana. Is ho a Republican? No; a Democrat. Was his character bad ? No; its excellence was his recommendation for the office, for which his neighbors supported him two years ago. Did he do a dishonest act in his office? No; his integrity is above question. Did he attempt to carry out an obnoxious Repub lican measure? No; he waa attempting to defeat one so denounced by Democrats. Why, then, is this honest man, old and respected citizen, Democratic leader and estimable gentlemen, driven from his home? He is compelled to seek sanctuary solely because he is an official of the Republican government of Louisiana. When. then, no other cause can be honestly assigned, is (here not force in the doubt ex pressed in the question: Are Republics ostracised because they are dishonest? N only among those more deeply interested in its solntion by living under its effect is this question important, but to all who de sire that justice shall be done and the right triumph. To those abroad to whom we look for aid or counsel, thia latest case is commended. And should it meet the eye of those Senators who have been most prominent in their interest in the Louis iana question, should Morton or Cameron, or even Thurman see it, they can find much in it for reflection. Anon Dickinson. We learn that this distinguished orato r will visit New Orleans during the present month, and deliver one or more of her lectures here. "Joan of Arc," "What's to Hinder." and "Men's Rights" are the titles she has given to three of her orations, among other subjects for discussion. Miss Dickinson is a most entertaining speaker She is original and eloquent, and her speak' ing will be a noveltv in this citv. The Kaces Colonel Cottrell, of the Alabama stables, arrived in the city yesterday with ten horses in good trim for the races ot Saturday. Mr. Stone also came with three horses. About ninety fast horses are now here. The race traok at the Fair Grounds is so well drained and hardened that unless a severe storm occurs, nothing in the nature of water will prevent the races. UOUHT KECUKD. W EDNESDAY, MARCH 31, 1875. United States Circuit Court. Present—Hon. W. B. Woods, circuit j udge. Abraham Haveni vs. city of New Or leans.—On injunction to restrain the city from disposing of nofes given on lease of markets, the plaintiff alleging non-citizea ahip. The court said: I conclude the injunction should not be maintained. There can be no dispute about the facts. The rents of markets contribute to ihe revenues of the city as well as taxes. They are not like a shop owned by the city and leased to sell drygoods in. There_are many municipal arrangements; they are policed, kept in order and maintained at the public expense. When the Legislature determines what power or taxation should be granted it con siders what amount ot revenue is necessary. It considers the revenue the city will derive from its ferries, wharves and markets, and authorizes it to levy only such a tax in addition as will be sufficient for the ex penses of the municipal government. It has to act on this theory and has settled the rate. These rents then are revenues with which no party can interfere. The purpose of this p'aintiff is plainly to make a specu lation. He leases these markets and gives his notes to the city. Next day he goes to the brokers for city certificates at fifty cents on the dollar. * He wishes to pay a debt ot $100,000 with $7.i,00(). There is no occasion for interference oi' this court. In junction dissolved and the restraining orders heretofore issued quashed. James Simpson vs. Hays, Tnnstall 8c Co .—Judgment for plaintiff tor $300. North German Lloyds vs. commissioners of immigration.—Injunction modified that the restriction of thecollection of thecharge of $2 on passengers not liable to become a public burden is limited to affect vessels of plaintiff.

State ex rel. M. F. Boris vs. J. G. BrowD, Administrator of Accounts.—On the appli cation tor a mandamus to compel the city to receive jury warrants. The court said that though any citizen might sue the city he could not ask the court to mandamus a city official in any way to give preference to his debt. Mandamus refused. Superior Criminal Court. INFORMATIONS. Assault, etc.—Lawrence Howe!!, John Graham. Carrying concealed weapon — William Newton, Camille Sam, W. J. Nichols. Grand larceny—Annie Scott. Breaking and entering—Henry Nolan.

Anderson, convicted of rape.—On exception to jurisdiction of the caurt being overruled, defendant appealed ON TRIAL. State vs. William Burke.—Murder. The defense offered the brother of the prisoner as a witness, and the State objected on the ground that he was implicated and charged as a co-defendant. On production of Ihe affidavit charging him with murder as an accessory, the point ot the Attorney Gen eral was maintained, and the witness com mitted to prison. A juror, John E. Renge torff, was suddenly taken sick and his fain iiy physician sent for. the caae being con tinued. First District Court. PLEADED GUILT r. Assault and battery—Jeff Wells. NOLLE PROSEQUI ENTERED. Assault and petty larceny—Mike McCann, Marie Bruga, Dennis Eruga. Fourth District Court. C.vnthia Davis vs. N. Kuntz.—On the civil rights bill for $500. Submitted and taken under advisement. The Appropriation Act. Early yesterday morning the Secretary of State consulted Attorney General Field in regard to the request made by Lieu tenant Governor Antoine and Speaker Hahn, in relation to the appropriation bill. They charged that the bill, as deposited in the Secretary of Slate's office, ia a forgery, and requested the Secret iry to revoke and annul his proclamation of the same made officially ia the Republican. The Secre tary s consultation with the Attorney Gen eral resulted in a decision that he had no authority to revoke the promulgation. The bill came to him from the Governor, who hgd approved it. His approval was deemed as good authority to the mind of the Secretary that it was cor rect; and when the act reached him through the proper channel he had a simple duty to perform, and that was to furnish a certified copy to the official journal for publication. This he had done, and there his duty ia connection with the bill ended. It the act as it came from the Governor was not a correct copy of the bill which passed the General As sembly, and was attested by the officers thereof, it was no fault of the Secretary; nor does he seem to consider that it is any part of his business to investigate a matter of this kind. The promulgation of the bill will proba r y stand. As it has been asserted that the appropriation bill as it passed the Legisla ture, and was approved by the Governor and sent to the Secretary of State, had been destroyed, it may be proper to State here that this is not the case. The original copy of the bill as sent to the Secretary of State is now on file in that oljice. An in spection ot the bill will satisfy any one that changes have been made, but by whom or where itia impossible to say. Tlio New Adjutant General. To-day Colonel Jack Wharton will be commissioned Adjutant General ot the State, vice H. Street, removed. Colonel \\ barton is a gentleman and a soldier, having served with distinction as colonel of a Confederate regiment in the late war. Since the close of the war he has accepted the situation of affairs in good faith, and is believed to be in full unison with the administrations of President Grant and Governor Kellogg. It is safe to predict that bfe will make a valuable assist ant to the executive. Appointments by the Governor. H. H. Carver, public administrator tor the parish of Assumption. Paul Bruce, port warden for the port of New Orleans, vice P. H. Dejoie, resigned. J. Hyce, notary public for the parish of East Baton Rouge. Judge Staea will be recommissioned to day judge of the Second Diatrict Police Court. The Senatorial Excursion Party. The following dispatch was received yes terday evening by the Southern and Allan tie line: Mobile, March 31.—The train from Mont gomery, with Senators Chandler. Cameron. Anthony, Patterson and Morton; also. Colonel Scott, ot the Pennsylvania Central railroad: Ben Perley Poore, Ex Governor Brown, ot Georgia, and Hon. C. A. Nutting, of Macon, Georgia, arrived here two hours late, caused by tne breaking of the engine. They have one of Pullman's palace cars and one of Colonel Scott's palace cars for their accommodation. The party left for New Orleans on the night train. Owing to the delay in leaving Mobile the party arrived here after midnight this morning, and the excursionists did not dis embark from their comfortable sleeping oars. i The party includes about twenty-five persons, ail told. They will stop at the St. Charles Hotel while in this city. Unprecedented Promptness. Yesterday afternoon, at about the time for closing banks, the proprietors of the Academy of Music and Varieties Theatre were waited upon by deputy sheriffs, who announced that they came to take charge of their establishments for the reason that the city license for theatrical amusements had not been paid for the year 1875. Mr. Bid well promptly paid the usual tax for his establishment, and dismissed the keepers. The Varieties Theatre was more severely dealt with, it appears, for an injunction pro. hibitiug performances until the tax collector should be satisfied was served on the man ager. The injunction had been sued out by the City Attorney. Of course the license for the Varieties Theatre was promptly paid, as in the case at the Academy, aDd the city is so much the richer for the efforts of its attorney, and the credit of Mr. Bid well and Mr. Howard remains unimpaired The action of the City Attorney was some what severely criticised, the opinion being expressed that he resorted to harsher meas ures than the well known character of the parties concerned would i ustify. The Appletons will publish Geuerai Suer man's recollections of the war. The President Approved. The Senate yesterday, by a vote of 33 to 23, adopted the resolution approving the action of the President in protecting the peace of Louisiana and sustaining the' Kel logg government. It ia noticeable that the Republicans were entirely united on the proposition. Even Senator Christiancv. of Michigan, voted for it. Though believing there have been wrongs in Louisiana, he holds that the President could not have pursued a different course. The passage of this resolution, foliowing the action of the House, settles the Louis iana question so far as concerns the attitude of the general government. It does not undertake to decide upon the original validity of the Kellogg government. It does not assume to pass upon the allega tions of fraud on either side. But it does assert that the Kellogg government is the existing government of the State, and as such must be sustained. The House resolu tion was to the samo effect. It distinctly recognized Kel'ogg as Governor now anil for the rest of his term. The compromise settlement proceeds upon the same basis and embodies the same recognition. All these concurrent decisions are conclusive. Henceforth there can be no question as to the action of the President cr any branch of the general government. Kellogg must be recognized and sustained just like the Governor of any other State. The vote of the Senate, following and ratifying that ot the House, expresses the undoubted judgment of the country. Public sentiment approves the action of the Presi dent in protecting the peace of Louisiana and in sustaining the existing government of the State. It believes that through this difficult and perplexing trouble he has been animated by the high and honorable purpose ot preserving the public peace and promot ing public justice. Such is the judgment not merely of Republicans but of all inde E endent right minded citizens who are not linded by party prejudices. Their feeling is well indicated by the action ot Senator Christiancy who, while Republican in pri ciple, is not partisan in his action, and especially upon this Louisiana question, has shown the ntrncst freedom of judgment. The President has reason to be gratified with the result. Another aspect of the question deserves special attention, and that is the attitude of the Democracy. Their course on this reso- lution is a striking illustration of their utter fatuity and imootence. It is apparent to the country that the only way of peace, and the only practical settlement of the Louisi- ana question ia the recognition of Kellogg and the adoption of the compromise. This determination commends itself to the ap- proval of all patriotic and candid people. Yet the Democrats strenuously and unani- mously resisted the resolution. They kept denouncing the Kellogg government as a gross usurpation. They assailed the action of the President as unwar- ranted. And what did they propose! If they hold that Kellogg should — be sustained, they are bound to show what should be done. .If they insist that the lolicy of the resolution is wrong, they are jound to define what is right. What, then, did they offer m place of the resolution? Not a thing! They did offer an amendment designed to limit the meaningiof the resolu- tion; but while condemning Vhat it pro- posed to do. they had neither the patriotism, the sagacity nor the ability to give any indi- cation of what they thought ought* to be done. While declaring that Kellogg ought not to be upheld, they would not and could not say what other course should be taken. The fact shows the imbecility of the party, and furnishes another proof that the coun- try could not safely trust it to deal with this question .—Aloany Journal. -—--| Sensation Headlines. Dr. J. G. Holland, writing for the April number of Scribner 3 Montidy , says: The moment an editor becomes consci entious, and recognizes the importance and dignity of his position, he drops his sensa tional headings with disgust. If be has news from Zanzibar, the heading of ltis item states tbe fact; and if the reader is interested in Zanzibar he reads the item. If he has important news from Zanzibar he states that the fact is very important news from Zanzibar, that tact; and the reader finds the fact as represented, and judges of the facts and their relations without having been misled by sensational headings. It is a good newspaper rule to hit every subordi nate sensational head wherever the editor sees it. All news with more than one head is guilty of a crime against the editor and reader alike, and deserves decapitation. You can never appreciate Boueicanit, said John McCullough, until you see him produce one of his pieces, which yoi^ill take perhaps in the manuscrip£and regard it as almost devoid of interest. He will rehearse every part with the person he em ploys. He will present' the scene painter with drawings in proportion by theanthor's own hand of all the Beenes. 'He will give the property man drawings and models for whatever he has to employ. He will furnish the stage carpenter with working models of the machinery and new scenes he has to use. Then he will direct the leader of the orchestra and write musio for particular place sin the play as well as the rhymes for the songs which are to be song. When all this is done, Mr. Bouoicault will himself assume the leading part and play it.— Car retpondence Graphic.

A telegram was received at the War Department to day from the commandant of the troops at Key West, Florida, an nouncing that two cases of yellow fever existed in that place and the troops had been moved to another locality, beyond reach of the disease. Correspondence Between Governor Coke and the Secretary of War. The following telegram was received here to-day from the Governor of Texas: Austin, Tex., March 30,1875. To His Excellency U. S. Grant, President of the United States: Sir —The depredations of organized bands of robbers from the repubiio of Mexico have of iata increased in frequency and atrocity to an extent which threatens the depopulation of the lower Kio Grande country. The alarm in the country between the Nueces and Rio Grande, consequent upon these raids in which our people are ruthless ly murdered and their property forcibly taken by these foreign desperadoes, is wide spread, and unless relieved by some assur ances of protection must result in a general break up of the settlements. On the twenty-sixth of this month a large party of these robbers penetrated the in terior as far as within eighteen miles of Corpus Christi, robbing stores and ranches, aud murdering and capturing citizens, and capturing and* destroying United States mails. I appeal to your excellency for protection for the people of thijt country against these invasions of outlaws from Mexico, since they have been of almost weekly occurrence for several months past and are increasing in force and boldness. The citizens of that country have been compelled for the most part to move to the towns for protection, and no security exists outside of these corporations for life or property, and the people in the towns even hold themselves in constant readiness for defense. I trust that your excellency will deem it 'roper te give security to the people on the ilio Granite border, in view of the assur ance I now give you that an extreme necessity exists for it. Very respectfully. RICHARD COKE, Governor of Texas. The Secretary of War sent the following answer: Washington, D. C., March 31, 1875. To the Governor of Texas The. President being absent, your tele gram has been sent to me. Orders will be given to the military authorities to take inmediate steps toward the protection of the people of Texas on the Mexican fron tier. WILLIAM W. BELKNAP. Secretary of War. THE WAR CLOUD, Tlore Outrages on the Border—Americans Murdered—Mexicans Lynched— Busi ness Suspended—Relief Called For. Galveston, March 31.—A Aei rs special, dated Corpus Christi to-day, says an Amer ican woman with her husband, in company with teamsters from Lorado, arrived here to-day. She gives a sworn statement that she saw at San Fernando creek on last Friday, about thirty-five miles from here, two Americans, dead. They were stabbbed in several places, and their horses and arms were still near. They apparently had been dead about a day. One was a very stoat man, with heavy blaok hair and beard; the other a light haired man, both being about twenty-five years ot age. They were not known. The team^ers buried them in their saddle blankets, and hastened on. She says that at a place called Chocolate, about twenty miles from this place, two Mexicans were banging upon a tree. This is evidently the work of the raiders. Rumors from a reliable source report other similar cases: also, that a large body of Mexicans have crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico, making these their objective points. There is great anxiety felt for the safety of our citizens. Business is almost entirely suspended. No one is leaving town or coming in. Merchants say they will order no more goods until these outrages are checked and they are afforded some protection. Our citizens and arms are inadequate to resist the threatened attacks. Citizens and merchants lield a meeting to-day, requesting the government to fur nish immediate relief. the miners. . Jo**eatl«u of the Miners. Reading, Pa., March 31. —The Kayle says that the announcement of the coalition of the two unions is hailed with joy by the miners and suspended railroad employes. Jollification meetings are being held in Schuylkill county, and Presidents Siney and Rhodes will issne proclamations. Another Assassination Reported —Utter Lawlessness and Imbecile Officials. A later dispatch from Upper Lehigh an nounces the killing of McDermott, one of the bosses, there last night. Coffin hand bills were served on the men obtaining coal for the boilers at Eekley colliery. The whole region is in a state of great excite ment, and the feeling is general that property and lives are at the mercy of these reckless men. This is the third day that demonstrations have been made. The sheriff, Kirkendali, has declined to appear unless an actual riot takes place, and then proposes to eome from Wilkes barn*, twenty-fonr miles away, to quell it. The deputy sheriff now here de clines to act withont instructions. The raiders are called Landerhnrn's regiment from the fact that Landerburn has been selling condemned government muskets. A Raid ob the Upper Lehish. Hazleton, Pa., March 31. —Another crowd of anned men have started from Eberville for the Upper Lehigh, to stop the men employed by the Jersey Central rail road from loading coal at that place. A special train has left here with a detach ment of police armed and equipped to re sist any attempt at violence by the mob. The result of this raiding is awaited with great anxiety. Onr local police is too small to contend with the exasperated miners, and a call for the military is expected. The Sheriffs Alter the Miners. Philadelphia, March 31.—The sheriffs are getting the better of the miners, who generally obey the summons to eome in after concealing their arms. AH who have arms on their persons are arrested. An Appeal to Governor Allen. Columbus, March 31.—Several prominent coal operators called on Governor Allen to day and informed him they had good reason to believe that serious trouble might be expected at Nelsonville before long from the mischief-making coal miners, who are seeking to drive all the colored miners from Hocsing valley. They called to ob tain his opinion as to what they had better do under the circumstances. The Governor informed them that he had issued a procla mation to the local officials to use their full authority to prevent bloodshed dt the de struction of property, and that, with the law, was amply sufficient to meet all eases. The Governor declined to give any advice as to what steps the coal operators should take to proteot their property, saying the citizens must construe the laws for them selves; that it was his business to act when laws were violated, rather than to antici pate their violation. Parade of the Strikers. Pottsville, Pa., March 31.— A grand S arade of the Mechanios and Workingmen's enevolent Association, of Ashland, and Mechanics and Laborers' Associations from Gordon and Heekscherville, occurred here this afternoon. About 500 men were in line who expressed themselves determined to stand out to the last. A Riot ia Proffreee—More Trouble Appre« bended. At 7 P. M. rioting began on the streets opposite the Repplier House. Chief Bar gees Gensell called out the police force to quell the riot. A rough from Centralia turned on Chief Burgess and tired several shots at him without effect. No arrests were made, the police fearing it would cause a greater riot. Great excitement prevails. The citizens fear there will be trouble to night. Reports to the effect that the blacklegs, as they are termed, at Mansion House, em ployed by the Pennsylvania and Reading Railroad Company, will be attacked to-day between Locust Gap and Alaska coUiery. The train hands were stoned, fired upon and driven from their train. Superintendent Olhausen went to the spot and brought the train through safely. While societies were on their wav freni Heekscherville to Ashland and firing a salute at Gordon, one of the men had an arm shot off and another was badly wound ed internally by the premature discharge of a cannon. As predicted in these dispatches yester day of a coming general suspension, the result of the miners joining the union at Shamokin, the following dispatch was re ceived here to-day from that place: "The men at Buckridge colliery, worked by May, Audenried &c Co., intend striking to-morrow for the 1874 basis. Every one suspended to-day at Henry Clay colliery, worked bv J. Langdon A Co." NEW YORK. Excitement in Wall Street. New York, March 30.— Daniel Drew, in tegard to whom a report was current to day that he is in serious financial difficulties, is lying sick at his residence in Union square. A reporter called there this evening, and in response to inquiries regarding the trnth of the Wall street rumors, was in formed that Mr. Drew is not financially embarrassed, though he did to-day instruct, his bankers not to settle his calls, which were chiefly in Wabash, until he could go down town and attend to the matter hi mselt. Mr. Djew. though very much indisposed, expressed the hope that he would be able to be in Wall street to morrow to settle his obligations. The legion of inquirers at Drew's usual ilaces of resort were blandly told that Drew was sick. Drew's absence from the street caused a decline in gold and advance in exchange. Daniel Drew In Wnll Street. New York, March 31.—Daniel Drew is in Wall street to-day, settling all his contracts which came due yesterday. Tbe Times' Version. The Times' financial article says: "The cause of violent fluctuations in stock yester day was attributable to Daniel Drew's wild operations in 'calls,' 'straddles' and 'puts. ' Drew, it appears, failed to put in an ap pearance, when tbe decline in gold made lis customers anxious. "The effect on the street when the fact beoamo known was to depress prices and generally unsettle values. But as soon as t was understood that any permanent default on his part would place a number of speculators operating on his calls short of stocks, the feeling changed and prices began to advance just as the Stock Ex change was about to close for the day. The effect on the Gold Room was even more decided than in the Stock Exchange, and prices declined from 116% to 114%, and millions of 'long' gold were sold out on this decline. There was a sharp advance in foreign exchange." Four Years In the Penitentiary. H. H. Blatter, who killed Michael Hussey at the Scheutzen Park, in Washington about » year ago, and pleaded guilty of manslaughter on the sixteenth instant, was to-day sentenced to four years in the A> bany penitentiary.
