The ravages of fires in various parts of
the City,in the face of the most strenuous
exertions of so complete an organization
as the "Fnum CouMP.r s" of New Orleans,
leads to an inquiry into the causes of so
mnyny failures to arrest the progress of
the flames before considerable damage
is done, and to ascertain, whether the
ravages result from the inefficiency of'
the means to extinguish these fires, or in
tihe lack of the use of raple remedies.
The result of frequent personal observa
tion cannot fail to afford conchlu:ive
evidence, that the supply of water is
t'otally inadequate, in time. In the ce:;ter
of the City, wells are sunk e:t convenient
dist:nces, and in this leality there is
little difficulty in extinguishing the fire
if discoveredl before it has gained much
headway. In every other part of New
Orleans, it is a huniliating spectacle, to
see six or seven ; ,, ; hlv ring to tht.
slot, firemen rushing out of irc.thi to t3 the
Bcene, and when all are there, ready to
pouri floods of water, the cry-"no water"
-"no water" fails like a le:aden pall on
every "listening ear." Away go the fire
men in various directions, to secure, water,
some ruash with hook a.d ladder, and
axe, and in the meantime the fl:lmes i!
mnoc'-ery lick their forky, fiery tongues
anmd ri.t in destnruction. The watt~r comus
slowly, and as soon as it comes the fire is
sure to go out very shortly. Now, this is r
matter that deserves the attention of every
resident in New Orleans and especially
of Merchants, property owners, and In
stuance offices. With the Mississippi
river encircling us, with an inexhaustible
supply of water just beneath the surface
of the earth, it argues a lamentable and
outrageous negligence to leave the v:st
property of this growing metropolis to
the tender mercies of a few scattered
water plugs.We can scarcely conceive how
the fire companies have been enabled to
•'ndnu'o the chagrin and pain of finding
themselves so repeatedly foiled and de
fied, without a solemn protest. We
earnestly recommend this matter to the
"City Fathers," and resipectfully refer
them for evidence of the correctness
of what wo say, tb the first fire that oc
cu's, nearly anywhere in the City.
The 1brpubican, of yesterday, in an ut
terance between a lunent and a protest,
says, "it is worth something to be the of
ficial printer of the corporation, in that
we have to bear the burdun of every prin
ting office in the city." A little ingenu
ousness might have acknowledged, that it
was "worth something" in another ma:te
rial respect. But the lament is, that even
du; Go"rnor considers it necessary to re
fer to the subject as one that ought to be
remedied at our expense." Well aocord
ing to your estimate of what it is "worth,"
the adoption by the Legislature of the
Governor's rcommendation, womld relk te
you of the burden of every printing office
in the city.
"The official printer" must be content
to pay the penalty of being be-grudged and
teazed occasionally "by every discontent
ed printing office in town," and evtn by
th,' Golvrnor. The unfodrtunate Rptdliceao
must bear it all, until more fortua;tte
increase the number of such poor suflmr

cnaor will divide his anathemas," and let
us adnd his patromage too.

'Although it is true that chastity is a
law of universal ob:igation, it is not true
that man's guilt i.i violatirg it is as great
as that of women, because the degree of
guilt depenis on the degree of tempta
tion, which in the case of men is very
strong, both from temperament and cir
cu-anstances, and in the case of women
very weak. " Men's passions are fierce and
active ; women's feeble and dormant.
Moreover, the way in which the work of
life has been divided nx:ikes men's ex
posure to temptation constant; women's
very rare. The race has, therefore, in
forming its moral judgmnent on the qual
ity of oflin.;es. against sexual pruity, al
:was t:'ratcd the m:ul':; guilt as less
heinous than the woman's, and although
this rule does occasionally work astoiund
ing injustic'', and has called into exis
tence the great blot on Christian civil
ization, the cold-blooded m:lie seducer, it
does in the v:tst majority of cases work
what, we bllieve, is in the courts of hea
ven, as well as those of earth, recognized
as substantial jrstice. The distinction
has, however, a utilitarian :.s well as a
purely ethical basis, and one no less im
portant certainly. Like most other of
the usages kept up by society for the re
gulation of the relations of the sexes, it
has for its object the maintenance of the
integrity and purity of the fimily. The
maternity of a child is a physical fact,
very difficult of conceahnent, hardly ever
successfully conceal'ed, and usually prov
able by many witnesses. The pate'nity
of a child is, on the other hand, simply
an inference which derives all its strength
from the importance attached to chastity
by the female sex. It rests simply and
solel.' on the character of the mother. It
is incapable of proof by any other testi
mnony than hers. All that is known about
it is locked upi in her breast, and
to we:aken her scruples therefore,
is to throw doubts on the origin of all
her childcan: or, in other words,
to strike at the very- roo of the family
organization. If we had tiuings so arrang
ed, therefor#, that a woman thought no
more of violating her marn age vows than
a man, we should have probaMly in a very
large part of the world either to give up
the fitmily altogether, or shut women up,
as they once were shut up. The inference
with regard to the paternity of children,
therefore has to be jealously guarded,
not ondy because it is in the nature of
things weak, but because it furnishes what
is, in the present state o: human nature,
the main or sole inducement to husbands
to toil and accumulate for their wives and
oiffspring. For, let it never be forgotten,
the husband must, except in an infinites
imally sm:all number of cases, be every
where the breadl-winnmer. Children must
always look to their father for most of
the arms with which they face the world.
Now, there may come a time when, after
having heard the requisite number of
tracts, aman will toilcheerfully for the
maintenance and education of such dhil
dren as his wifeo may see fit to introduce
into the househodkl, without earing whe
ther they are his own or not. But we are
still far away from any such consumma
tion. As matters stand, brutal man will
neither dig nor delve for the support of
any children which he does not possess
a moral certainty hIe has begotten. He
acquires this certainty through his eon
flidence i his wife's purity, and society
helps to justify it by visiting her lapse
'a virtu with the deepeslt of eartthly
damnation.. To be sure, the arrange
ment does not work pedectfly but then
the world is full of imperfections, brethren.
We know you would have made a fr
better world if you had had a chance,
and it does seem a pity that so many
things, and especially the relations of the
sexes, and the manner of perpetuating
the species, should have beeun settled
without waiting for your appearance or
consulting you.

Our New Senator.
General J. 1. West was elected United States
Senator yesterday by both houses of the General
Assembly, having received in each a handsome
majority. To day the Senate will meet the
House in joint session for the purpose of coun
ting the vote and formally announcing the result.
But public interest in the contest terminates
with the already known action of the two houses
voting seperately.
General West is thereforke our Senator elect to
succeed Mr. Harris, whose term expires in
March with the present Congees, and will hold
the position for six years.
The succeissful candidate is a native of New
Orleans, having been born in this city in 1822.
Here he grew up to manhood, when he accepted
a commission as eaptain and served in the
Mexican war under General P. F. Smith. Shortly
after peace was proclaimed,' General Smith's
command was ordered to the Pacific coast, and
Captain West went with it He subsequently
retired from thq army and engcaged in the publi
cration of the San Francisco Price Curresl, in
which occupation he continued three years.
When the war of the late rebellion eame up, he
joined a California regiment and march a dis
tance of fifteen hundred miles over the plains
with infantry and cavalry, to Western Texas,
bringing the force that relieved General Canbyw
He also served in important movements in .Ar
kansas and the Southwest before the close of
the war. He was promoted step by step, from
time to time, until he attained the rank of bri
gadier general of voluntcers.
When the Confedeates wer disarmed. and
peace proclaimed throughout the eountry,
General West retired frma the military service,
and moved to Teras, where he invested about all
his means in the porebase of a railroad. But
the businees of that wild and sparsely settled
State did not respond properl to the enterprise.
and the outlay proved to be unpretahe. In
1867. General West accepted from Generd Her
ron the place of Chief Deputy United States
Marshal for this district, which heretnained un
tila chang was made by President OCranmt.
Alter this, a short term of servise in the Oastm.
house as Auditor of Customs. ad thena be was
appointed by Governor Warmoth to be hAdmi
nistrator ofImprovements undg r our new city
I charter, which was one of the most important
of the municipal positions created by the law.
Here he has ahown to thi people who have had
an opportunity to observ, and note his eial
acts, the untiring indastry, the promptness and
eorrectnr of decision and comprehensive abi
i itA that learedl Ahim the repoutato of
5 0
being one of the best exeentive men in the State.
As chief of a eat. dptmeneat, he has few
equals, and no superiors that we know of. In
short, whatever General West has undertaken
to do, he has done it well, and we may hope that
his Senasorial,duties will form no exception to
the rule. In addition to his Am abilities as a
man, he is a stannch supporter of the union of
the States under the Constitution. and sincerely
attaehed to the principles of the Republican par
ty as a means to accomplish the great end.
Such is the man who has been honored by
the people of his native State with a meat in the
United States Senate. He will prove an able
and valuable member of that highly dignified
and respectable body of men, and guard with
jealous care the interests committed to his trust.
He is well known to our other members of Con
gress, whose cooperatton in all measures for
the benefit of this State he will be able to secure,
and by concentration and economy of forces at
command materially raise the rank of Louisiana
in the scale of influence in national affirs.

Yesterday, the promoted brethren of the color
ed persuation celebrated their promotion in the
scale of humanity, though emancipation, by a
grand procession in the forenoon, and a no less
succesful meeting in the evening at Olivet Bap
tist chueche, on the corner of Polk street and
Third avenue. Shortly after 9 o'clock, the little
chapel was filled to its utmost capacity by the
colored brethren, young and old, male and fe
male, and scattered among them were not a few
of their pale-faced brothers, but all seemed to
enjoy both the day and the special occasion.
Shortly after 9 o'clock
was formed on third avenue, with its right rest
ing on Polk street First came, mounted on
horseback, the chief marshal, Henry H. May,
and two assistant marshal, William Alexander
and An trw Jackson, all of whomdid their duty
ably. Then followed a platoon of 12 policemen,
under command of Sergt. Wn, Buckly. Next
"music was heard with its voluptuous swell,"
and the Richmond House Cornet band tramped
along with drum and fife Then marched along.

order came comipany A, Chicago Blues, a com

of music lollowed in the form of the Excelsior
band, after which, and in a long drawnout line,
miArL'hed the Btrothers of Union, with Capt. C.
H. Jackson in commend. After these drove a
carriage, containing the officers of the meeting
which met in the evening. uHere still another
band, Nevin's, enlivened the march; after
which followed the Society of the Unite 1 Fel

dlosing with carriages.

cession dispersed.
the celebrators a*semble at Metropolitan ball,
which was filled by colored citizens and their
better halves. The platform was appropriately
decorated with flags and banners; stars and
stripes waving above the new-born freemen.
Moore's excelsior band was only present and
discoursed excellent music. There were likewise
present a number of prominent white citizens.
THE oriCEs
of the meeting were as follows: I
Preaident-H. A. Bartlett.
Vice President-A. J. Smith
Secretary--J. N. Greenwood.
Chaplain--Bev. H. DeBa\ptiste.
A band of music was present and pleasmntly
varied the prooeedinga.
The meeting was appropriatl? opened with
prayer by the chaplain, Rev. B. Delaptiate.
The secretary, J. N. Greenwood, then read
President Lincoln's emancipation proclamation
in excellent style
mB. w~iRE's ammasas,
Mr. Louis B. White, a colored clrk in the
post ofee, then made an address of which the
following is a abstract: The ocasion which
called them together was oce which was of gpst
interest to every eolored man in the land They
had taken an important pIart in the rebellion
which had lately extended broadast over the
land. Their frteedom had been given them.
The proclamatioan which had jst bren sd, and
which had declared the freedom of the negro
race, showed that freedom had not been given to
them merely to servea the anio, but becaue they
were consideed as able to beomne good citizens.
It now became their duiy to show that they were
worthy of the freedom which had bee given to
them; they should do their best to educate them
'elves up to the high position to whieh they bd
been raised, and to prove that President Lincoln
did welln in isuing the ~eosmatlon reeing them
ad making tLhem eines of the United States.
.Eady in th war, the oaiod pogpmlati haLd v.
lunteerd to serve in the armies of the United
States; but their services were declined They
were not considered as .worthy to wear the
SUnited States aitfrm. But the time came
whean the United Statm trembled for it exis
I tenaee Agim the es was mads, mad aeespted
I by the governman. And they showed them
selves worthj of the trut. In the navy, Ti
manll had bl hissl e. Other eolored sol
diems ad aulde tirs names fames at Fet Pl
low, at Petersburg, at Fort Wagner, and many
other places. Now all negroes hoeald fel
grateful for what had been done for them and he
did not believe there was any race who had the
feeling of gratitude implanted in their hearts
deeper than their race. Having received so
many blessings in the past fiw years, then, it
became them to obliterate all thoea feelings of
revenge for Ist injuries. They had gained the
great blessing for which they had been seeking.
Let, therefore, the pest and its injuries be for
gotten. Their rights had been fully sustained.
They should themselves then give complete
rights to all men. [Cheers.] There might still
be designing demagogues who wished to deprive
other men of their rights for political purposes;
but there could be no good government where a
considerable portion of the people were deprived
of their political right. He would therefore have
their rights granted to those men. [Cheers]
These might be curious words for a colored man
to utter; but they who had once said that they
had suffered wrongs grevious to be borne, could
not reasonably advocate the disfranchisement of
any one. They had been the people who had
borne all the burdens. If there was, therefore,
any wrong that they would. see revenged, they
were the ones to do it. But they had received
sufficient benefits, since the time when those in
juries were inficted, to enable them to forgive
them now. [Cheers.] And they would find ge
nerosity of this kind the best in the end for them
selves, for their brethren, and for the govern
ment in general.
The speaker objected to the policy of the
United States government, as expressed in at
tempting to secure a portion of the island of
Smn Domingo, the negro government of which
had been the only one of its kind which had
been tolerably succesfuL The object of this
government was mere aggrandisement, and its
accession would simply result in the destruction
of the free government on the remaining half of
the island. The negro population of this country
should send up an emphatic protest against the
acquisition of any portion of the island by the
United States, [Cheers.]
In conclusion, he would urge all his brethren,
in choosing men to vote for, not to choose men
because they belong to such and such a party,
but to choose them because they would make
good men to represent them, and to recollect
that united they would stand, and divided they
would fall. [Cheeo
DL C v. . DYE
was then introduced as an old and tried friend
of the negro race. The speaker said it was no
new thing for him to speak to negroes, either in
this country or the old country. He was glad
to see them celebrating the day of their emanci
pation. All great, free countries, celebrated the
anniversary of their freedom, and it would be a
hbad day for them when they should forgot to
celebrate the day when thqy Ibecame free. So it
would be an unfortunate day for the United
Sates when it should forget to cclebrate the day
of emancipation; and whenever that day shall
conic when they will forget to celebrate that
great day. the United S:ates would cldek rve to
perish, and the negroes would deserve to lose
their freedom if they she :'..! forget to celebrate
the 1st. of January every year; and he hoped to
see hereafter, not only processions and meetings,
but to see bonfires burning all over the city and
all over the land on the st. ofJanuary. [(Cheers.]
The speaker cncluded with references to
several of the prominent orators against slavery.
was then introduced to the audience. The speak
discussed the past condition of the colored race
and its present condition. Hitherto the negroes
had been deprived of aCI the rights and privi
leges of white men, social, educational, business
and political But this was changing rapidly
and completely. It was indeed astonishing how
rapidly prejudices of races were dying out in
this country. In the Iouth, for instance, a
grand change was going on. Now its people
were the most illiterate, but soon the time irould
come when it would have the finest people in the
United States. The .negroes themselves were
rapidly cultivating themselves up to a standard
suitable to their new rights. Now there were in
the schools 190,000 colored children. All should
seek education. Education was what the negroes
needed. Education was a protection. Educatios
would show him his manhood. Again, the
colored people must seek to obtain position ir
the community, position both as men of intel
lect and as men ofcapi'al He, was afraid nou
that sUtch men were as sarce among the eolored
people here as it was mid people from Chicag
were in heaven. They had therefore a great worl
to do before they could obtain that intence
which they ought to posemas am people and a
one of the national compounds that now made
up this government. [Cheers.]
