Mr. Eustis said the ambiguity of

it had been held that, although
law provided for remission of such

tetieleon did not apply in behalf of the
of New Orleans. We have, in New

Mr. Robertson moved to lay the sub
stitute on the table. Motion lost, and
the adoption of the substitute being in
order, Mr. White spoke in opposition
to including municipal taxes in the sub
stitute, whoih he thought should be left
to the discretion of the city.
Mr. Zacharie further argued the pro.
priety of the question involved in the
matter as one for serious consideration.
The law in a measure had been crystal
ized, albeit by hostile legislation, in
such manner that it would not be pru
dent to deal precipitately or immaturely
with it, and he therefore begged the
Senators not to be hasty in their action,
particularly the Senators from the
country, who cannot so well understand
the extent and nature of the interests
of the city.
The yeas and nays being called for on
the adoption of the Eustis substitute,
Mr. Goode said he was opposedto draw
log any distinction between the city and
country, and after due consideration of
the oblections which had been raised
he thought them unfounded.
Mr. Robertson said he would vote no,
because he was opposed to creating a
premium by remission for the non

St. Charles rotunda, even as early as

lively appearance than it has for many

a telegrams from Washington indicating
that the Supreme Tribunal had arrived
at a Judgment on the presidential ques

pressed all Demncrats, but when later
news came in that the opinion given
did not affect, seriously, the national
qo uestion, there was a matnifest change.
In the rotunda there were (livers opin

decision of the tribunal; some thoug .t
that, according to what came over the
wires, there was really nothing deilnite
