He told the at tending physician, who says he was rational, that somebody had thrown kerosene over him, and then lighted it. There was no fire in the furnace nor in the room, and that fact gives strength to what appears an almost incredible story. Yuug Stahl died at daybreak in agony.

Plaintliffs claiming under the author ity of certain acts of the Lsgislatureof Louisiana, sue the defendant as owner of the schooner "Happho," for the sum of twenty-one dollars, being tolls at the rate of :I5 cents per ton upon the ad treaslured tolinnage of said schooner for eight several passes granted to said schooner out of the Bayou St. John. Defendant, denies the tight of plain tiffs to recover, for this: 1. Tihtt the layou Mt. John is a nat, uirl nrtvigabtl st.rtuieh 'liemptying into Lake l oit'ci.hartrein and c!oniiec! ed with the (lulf of Mexiho, nid s18 public p'rolperty, free to use f. all oiit 17rn of thiis an other StLttes of the I nltio, who have a LatIural right to navlgater said stream with their vessels aned to moor the salme to the banks thereof. 2. That. by the ict Iof ((onlgres af-l mitting Louisiana as a S-late itlo the Union it was mreade an exprIess proviso and conditlon that the river Misslaisppi and the navigable rivers and waters loading into the same, and into the Gulf of Mexico, should be forever common highways, free to the inhabitants of all the States and Territories of the United States, without tolls or duties therefor impnlosed by said Stiate, and that by soe lion 3:i51 of the tRevised Statutas of the United States all navi.ahle rivers and waters in the former 'territories of Or I leans and Louisiana are made forever public highways. :i. That the charge sought to ib col lected Is a duty of tonnage Imposed by the State of Louisana, without the con sent of Congress, and is within the pro hibition contained in so much of section 10, article I U. H. . Constitution as pro vides that "No Stato shall, without the consent of Congress, lay any duty of tonnage." There is no dispute as to the facts of the case, which from the testimony ad duced and the admlsson of the parties appear to be as follows: Bayou St. John has always boon a nav igable stream for vessels, such as defen Sdant's. It has its source in Louisiana, and flows into Lake Pontchartrain with out passing through any other State or territory. Plaintiffs under the provi sions of their charter granted by the State of ALouisitna, have, however, at their own expense, dredged and cleaned out said bayou, and have deepened the channel and extended the same through the bar. which otherwise blocks the mnouth of noit1l ,ryot so all but very light, draft vessels, and saidl plain.rrl , º now, from time to time, employ dredge boats, and do other work necessary to maintain such a depth of water on said bar and in said bayou as to keep the same accessible to and navigable for ves sels of a heavier draft than that owned by defendant. " It further appears that defendant has always lived upon or in the neighbor hood of said bayou, and that, he earns his livelihood by the use and hiring of his bout, which is of very 'light draft and that to the extent of the use and enjoyment of said bayou for which the toil is herein claimed, the said bayou, in its natural condition, is accessible to º and navigable for defendant's vessel. Ulpon the argument of the case it wus conceded by counsel for defendant that, notwithstanding the provisions con tained in the act of (ongress admitting Louisiana into the Union, the power of said State over the navigable streams within her borders is limited by no other restrictions than those limiting the power of the other States. The questions to be determined in this case may, therefore, be resolved into two propositions, to-wit: ]"ir.t-Is the sum claimed a duty of tonnage, within the prohibition con tained in section 10 of article 1 of the constitution of the United States. econid--Has Congress consented that the State of Louisiana should lay and collect the duty in question? Considlering the first of these proposi tions, it appears that the charge made by plaintiffs is based upon the tonnage of the vessel at a epe1itled rate per ton, and is made upon the authority of a provitsion of plaintiffs' charter, empow ering the presid2nt and directors to ask and "receive from every vessel pass ing in or out of the said bayou a sum not exceeding one dollar for every ton of the admeasured burthen of said ves sel." etc. sel." etc. The duty of tonnage which the con stitution of the United States prohibits has been well defined to be: "Any duty or tax on a ship as such, without regard to the residence of her owner, whether it be a fixed sum upon its whole tonnage or a sum to be ascer tained by comparing the amount of tonnage with the rate of duty; when a ship, as an instrument of com merce is required to . pay a duty as a condition to her being allowed to enter or depart from a port, or load or unload a cargo, either upon her tonnage, her property or as a license to her officers or crew." See Johnson vs. Cuicago Central, Law Journal. January 21, 1876; Gibbons vs. Ogden, 9 Wheat, 1. Pasceuger cases-7 Howard, 459; Steam ship Company vs. Port Wardens 3 Wall. p. 34. State tonnage cases-12 Wall. 212; Peete vs. Morgan, 19 Wall. There can oe no doubt that the duty in question comes within the meaning of the foregoing definition. It has been argued, however, that it is not within the prohibition contained in the con stitution, because it is laid and collected to facilitate commerce and for the pur pose of securing compensation for ser vices and expenditures, and to sustain this position several authorities have been referred to which will be con 1i daieM Loan, 226, an applicatioft was made for an injunction to prevent the construe tion of a drawbridge over the Cuyahoga river, upon the ground that it would obstruct the navigation of said river. "This application Isays the Court) is made under the fourth article of the compact in the ordinance of 1787 which declares : 'The navigable waters leading into the Mississippi and Ht. Liwrenco and the carrying places between the same, shall be common highways, and forever free, as well to the inhabitants of said territory as to the citizens of the United States, and those of any other Mtate that may be admitted into the Confederacy, without any tax, import or duty thlrefor.'(" This, it will be observed, is substan tially the same provision as that con tainedl in the section 5'25 of the Rlevised Htatutes of the United States, rolled on by counsel for the defendant. The ordinance of 1757, however, was passed before the adoption of the pres ent constitution, for the governance of what was known as the Northwest Ter ritory, and the only question which the Court was ciiled on to decide in the case referred to, was as to the proper constlruct.ion of the clause of that ordii nanoe which has been quoted. It is true, the Court reforreri inci dentally to the only provision of the constitution which could have boon called in questlon, to wit: the clausn giving to Congress the power to regulate commerce, and hold that this power is paramount in Congress, and is not concurrent with that of the Htates. The court then wont on t.o do cide that, the ordinance of 1787 "was not Intended to prevent the States atf fcted by it from Improving the naviga loleness of the waters in lOiestlon by removing o.bstructions, or by dams or locks to increase their depth, nor did it prevent said Htates from constructing works upon these waters which might beconslderod important to commercial intercourse. A dam (said the Court) may be thrown over a river provided a lock is constructed so as to permit boats to pass through with little or no delay, anrd "with(out hl'art/e. A temporary delay, such as passing a lock, could not be considered as an obstruction prohibited by the ordinance." At another place, the Court saidl : "A toll charged for the improvement of the navigation of a river is not ,ithin the ordiCnacne. In such a case the tax would not he for the use of the river in its natural condition, but for the Increased commercial facilities." After at much length the Judge con. eludes this very able judgment as fol lows: First-That the sum claimed is a dut.y of tonnage not in the nature of com pensation for services or for the use of plaintiff's property, since it is claimed of a veasel, not shown to have done anything but pass in and out of a navi gable stream, loading into waters "fall ing into the Gulf of Mexico," which was navigable for said vessel, without the plaintiff's assistance. Second - That Congress has given neither au express nor implied assent to the imposition of this duty by the State of Louisiana; said duty was, therefore, laid in violation of the provi stons of the constitution of the United States, and cannot be collooted. It is, therefore, ordered, adjudged and '2,oroo,, Shat. th iiu.lgmnt of the lower court be annulled, avon.,li a4d r. versed, and that there be judgment in favor of the defendant, dismissing platntiffs' claim; that the bond of re tease given by dlefendant be canceled, and that plaintiff pay costs in both courts. '1 ELE(idAPH rPOs'r. " A Blesslng In Dl.gullse." Edior D)entocrat--The liberality and public spirit of corporations are known of all men, but there are some corpora tions that are more liberal and have more public spirit than others. Among those most liberal and most public spir ited the Western Union Telegraph Com pany stands prominent. Have you observed their latest exhibition of these noble qualities? If not do walk over to Carondelet street and see our noble cedar forest, lately brought down the river (on a raft) and transplanted along side our banquettes. True, the trees are deprived or their roots and branches, and are expected to serve the purpose of telegraph poles, but they are ex pected to sprout out again and give us shade against a summer's sun. and under which our children may disport themselves. And the trees are as large as the lib erality of the company. They are eighteen inches in diameter at the base, and about forty feet in height. Stripped as they are, they are fright fully ugly, and for the present disgust the eye of the civilized and depreciate the value of our property; but they are expected to grow, you know; and if they do not, we are at least expected to get used to them. A few years ago the liberal company planted out a forest of pines along our sidewalks; they were of huge size and fearfully ugly, but we were told they would leaf out and im prove in appearance, and we would be delighted. There were no civilized courts in ses sion, and we submitted to the infliction. The trees never grew; they rotted, and hence the present cedar substitutes. We don't believe these will grow; we know they are ruining our property and we expect to ask that they be removed. We don't like to hurt the feelings of the company, but we don'ttlike the forest. And then the childlike sweetness of temper with which the City Fathers the "public servants," well paid to watch over our interests-submits to this infliction on those who voted to put them in office! Who would accuse one of them of ever knowing one thing of what was going on the other day when our banquettes were being ripped up to receive this cedar forest? They know of it! No, not they. Or if they did, they interfere with a great, good, liberal, public spirited monopoly! No, indeed, not if they planted large cedar trees right in the Mayor's office. Who ever heard of interference with the "vested rights" of a monopoly? Come over, Mr. Editor, and look at our cedar forest. Amicus CyusL. VALUABLU PPeQPZTT AT AucTi.o. - Metrs.

This morning the Detroit Tribune, which led the Republican bolt against Mr. Chand ler which ended in Judge Christiancy's election, says editorially that the Mexi can Embassy scheme is a political in trigue of Mr. Chandler's to create a vacancy in the Senate with the hope that his election would follow, and adds; "It is as true in this case as it was in re gard to the Davis vacancy, that Senator Chrietiancy has not been engaged in promoting this business, but has been quietly attending to his important legis lative duties, and in such a manner as to lead the people of Michigan to desire no change In their present representa tion in the Senate. There is no prospect that the second scheme will fare any better than the first." A R1OUGH SEA. And a Fearful Storm All Along the Jersey Coast. [Special dispatch to N. Y. Times.) Loto BANCPH, March 20.--A fearful storm has been raging along the Jersey coast for the last forty hours, sweeping almost everything before it. This evening the steamer Husland was only a few feet out of water, and was con tilually being lost from view by im mense waves and breakers, covering as high as her smoke-stack. She lies almost parallel with the shore, and seems to be fast in the sand. Every thing that was not apparently perfectly secure was hurled ashore. The beach for some distance is strewn with the light work of the main deck, including a few stores and small articles which were below. One hatchway was swept away by the intensity of the storm and washed ashore. It is uncer tain about any more being gone, as it has been an impossibility for any one to board her since yesterday noon. Three boats on the starboard side were washed ashore in pieces yesterday~ The owners have great fears as to saving the vessel, but still have hopes of saving a greater portion of the cargo. The Rusland appears to weather the storm splendidly. The wind blew from noit east to east all day, and the indications for to-morrew ara 4 It will go had Wh ensrtat#e about 4t0 feet to the southeast, and 8$ feet to eastward. Capt.

He save he has the ship in the exact positir;n he desirerl. Mhe now lite in a channel made by the weight of the water in her, and appears to lie in a easy and secure position and able to stand some rough sea. It is the inten tlon of Capt. Merritt ta let her remain in this position until a fair sea takes the place of this nncommonlv rough one, which is about the heaviest that has visited this coast for some time, it being a perfect hurrIcane. Ills iIntntions are, when weather permits, to pump all the water out of her and float her whlot can be done at any Inodorate tide, she lying now in water deep enough to do so when IIghtened of the load of water in her. IIe will not attempt this until a good sea aplpars, as he thinks he can float her without risk then. l+AMA4R' 's iL'rBR.

The Louistana Con gres.smen induced him to notify AugUr that the order of March 31 only was in force, which was that the troops should guard the public property and preserve the peace. iBlainh tried hard to per suade Hiayes to let Augur be his own interpreter of the order, but in this in stance his wish was not complied with. THIR TERXA CF nTIBAl re LILOAl. Up. W. It. IDode Exprs.seM hil Relief ar Mr. norrgan's Unfriendly Interpeea lion. [i. Y. Hen.1 GALv.troz, Texas, March 22.-The re cent unrsnceessful attempt of Messrs. William B. IDodgeand W. W. Phelps to have a receiver appointed for the Texas Central Railroad, of which Mr. Dodge is President, continues to afford a fruit I..*. rn. r n Jlotal,,1nUo neRi[_ conversation with a reporter of the Gal veston New.s, said that the movement was made in the interest of the roadand of all its creditors for the purpose of preventing it from falling into hostile hanns, and that the idea of applying for a receiver was a sudden thought which came to Mr. Dodge, Mr. Blair who is a large creditor of the road and himself, after they had reached Texa and proved that there was a floating in debtedness unprovided for that ren dered the road liable to immediate at tachment. Mr. Phelps also said that the visit of Mr. Dodge's party to Te.an was intended merely as a pleasure ex cursion, and that the statement made in an Austin journal that Mr. Dodge's train had run over a child was false. But this statement, and even the pub lication of a letter from Mr. Dodge It which he asserts his gratification at having been relieved through Mr. Mor gan's interposition of a vast load that he has helped to carry for the oik friends of the road, and with o'taracter istcl amiability expresses his hope that the new Administration will make the Texas Central a good thing for them selves and the State, as well as his trust that a kind of Providence will mak. the State itself all that its best friends could desire, have failed to mollify the Houston people. The Age of that c continues to flout Mr. Dodge and hi' motives, and says that what is com plained of more than anything else , that as President of the road he dd not, when he found it affairs in the condition alleged by Mr. Phelps, call a meeting of the directors and tell them what he intended to do, instead of slip ping into Austin with his lawyer and h-i intended receiver and making the at tempt to get the road into tte hands of a man who is charged with being hos tile to its interests; while Mr. Groes beck, the Vice President of the road ,s reported as saying that the application for a receiver did not meet the approval of a majority of the creditors or stoe~ holders of the road. It is understood that Mr. Charles_ Morgan, who checkmated the move for a receiver by buying up a maj,prity of the stock, will assume the floating debt of the company and provide for its im mediate adcjustment. The control of the road is of great importance to hi1m1 as a connection with his other railroads and his steamship line, and some of his enthusisastic admirers in'Houston olaim.. that he will trrake an immediate pro-$ of $5,00.0,00 by his recent operation. In the United States court, in Austin, on March 19, the consideration of the application for a receiver ws again postponed for thirty days, with the con sent of Mr. Phelps, and it is generally admitted here that this ends the figh in that court.
