[Special to New York World.] Psais, March 13.-The tragic death of M. Sivel and Croce-Spinelli, the aero mauts, in April, 1875, was one of the f great events of tne day. There were tree persons in the car at the time, and thebaloon ascended to the extraordinary height of 26,000 feet, when Sivel and t Qroce-Spinelli were suffocated in the i rare atmosphere, and the other barely 1 escaped with his life. A monument to their memory has been erected by sub- e .eription on ground ceded by the Mu alcipal Council for the purpose, and in E a few days their remains will be brought fom their resting place in Pere La chaise and placed by the monument, which will be inaugurated on the 15th of next month. Apropos of Paul de Musset's bio graphy of his brother Alfred, they are teling a very pretty story of the poet and Mille. Rachel, who, thirty years ago, was the great actress of Paris, and per- I hape of the world. One day she invited Alfred de Musset to dine with her, and I the rest of the guests were all notably I wealthy men. Rachel wore a very beau tiful and valuable ring which was no- 1 tioed and vastly admired. "Gentlemen," maid she suddenly, "seeing that you ad mire the ring so much, I shall now offer it for sale by auction. What will you ( give for it?" In a moment the bids ran I up as high as 3,003 francs. But DeMus get was silent. "And you, my poet." said the actress, "what will you give?" "I give you my heart," was the reply. "The ring is yours," was the reply; nor could she afterward, when the jest psemed to have gone far enough, be persuaded to take it back again. tShe "By Jove, but it iS no jest. You have given me your heart, and I would not return it for a hundred thousand "4eowns. You cannot take it back."

A labor bureau to supply white laboi to planters has been established it Shreveport. Jonas Davis, colored, convicted of cat tie stealing in Tensas, seemed affected by it, for he died suddenly the very day he was locked up in prison. The Terrebonne cane crop is promis ing. A much larger acreage has been planted than last season, itll of which, with but few exceptions, is doing well. The North Louisiana Railroad is im proving and repairing its whole line. A new and fine railroad bridge was built during the past month over Little Creek. The two young men who were arrested in Baton Rouge a few weeks back, charged with burning the cabins oi some negroes on Mr. David's place, in that parish, were tried last week and acquitted, they proving perfect alibi. A Republican mass meeting took place at Anderson's Hall, Shreveport, Saturday, March 24-so at least the Telegram says. The meeting devoted itself principally to a denunciation of Pinchback et al. as political tricksters. The police jury of Iberville has ap pointed a committee of citizens to con for with the police jury of West Baton Rouge relative to the opening of the Allain drain, which will have the effect of draining a large portion of Iberville parish. The authorities of Vidalia, parish of Concordia, doing nothing for them, the citizens of that little town have taken the matter into their own hands and, at their own expense, are costructing side walks, streets, etc., for the accommoda tion of the public. Judge R. J. Caldwell, of Monroe, re cently appointed Receiver of the United 8tates Landoflice at that place, de clines the office. He complains that the business of the office is wholly dis proportionate with the bond made necessary--some $~5,000--and declares that it is impossible for him to give solvent surety to that amount. While everything else is early, almost premature, and cotton planted fully three weeks before the usual time, the orange trees are, by some strange chance, several weeks late, and bloom later this season than they have ever done before. It is thought that this is owing to the severe cold of the last win ter, which somewhat retarded their growth. Among the country towns that are showing great improvement is Thibo daux. It now boasts several public halls, theatricals, minstrels, cock-pits, two newspapers, and all the other ne cessities and luxuries of a city. New houses are going up daily, and every thing shows that it is increasing in nonulation and urosneritv. MisslIpp1. Summit is to have a leather manufac tory. Vicksburg was quite excited the other day over a big bunko robbery. It ended placidly, however, as bunko and poli tics end-in a compromise. The Vicksburg .I#'rald declares that New Orleans money is too expensive for Vicksburg merchants to borrow, and declares that they will have to go else where, where they will not have to pledge their cotton for it. The arrival in Vicksburg of an organ grinder from New Orleans, thus inva ding the precincts of the Vicksburg grinder, brought on a savage fight which resulted in the calaboosing of both the organs. James Wood and John Moran ex changed shots at each other in Vicks burg Tuesday with the following result: Moran, dead; Woods. lv wAIna a D..4...,.. b vun Wi e cause of the shooting. Two freedmen, brothers, West and Tom McIntosh, who lived on the farm of J. M. Smith, near Buena Vista, en gaged in a fight on Monday last which resulted in the death of Tom. LHe was stabbed in the left breast with a knife in the hands of West. The negro Essex Quin, who attempted to outrage the daugnter of E. M. Yates, of Sumner county, was captured on Sunday last, and while en route to Wal thall, was met by a large number of men unknown to Essex's captors, who immediately took the prisoner in charge and swung him to a limb. Texas. Dallas jockey club purses sum up $3000. The Henrietta Journal states that Clay county is now receiving a heavy immigration. Local option went into effect in Go Had county last Saturday, and every sa loon is closed. Wheat is very promising in Hill county. The wild oat grass is a god send to Hill county. Mr. Charles Hearn walked his horse from Jacksboro to Fort Worth, a dis tance of eighty-one miles, in fifteen hours. About three-fourths of the Texas edi tors are lawyers and ex-preachers, a fact which accounts for their shrewd ness and unadulterated piety. Nearly 100,000 Germans are settled in some forty counties of Texas, particu larly Canal and Guadaloup, and they < are highly successful as agriculturists. 1 When they murder a man in Texas now they lay his body on the railroad track and the cars conceal all traces of 4 the murder, and a verdict of "drunk and asleep on the track" is returned. Such a case, at least, occurred on the International Railroad near Hearn. San Antonio has a "damnable out rage," in the form of a letter to the 1 Chicago Times ridiculing that town, its inhabitants, their ways etc. The peo ple and Herald are overflowing with in dignation, and the letter writer, should he dare appear again in San Antonio, would soon become the victim of an "outraged" people. They are having a lively time in Tom c Green county. Six murders in three 1 months and no arrests. Organized 1 bands of stock thieves exist in such num bers, and the county is so sparsely set tied, that the laws can not be enforced, and the citizens and officers of the coun ty have forwarded a petition to Austin to have the State send Rangers to aid < the civil authorities. Winm. E. Dodge, President of the Cen- i tral Texas Railroad, has finally been persuaded by the newspaper attacks on him to come out in self-defense. He i winds up with the plaint that he is sev- I enty-three years old and declares that I he will leave the State, in a few days, c never to return. Thank God.

The leone of the xzctleme of the Sentence of Death. IN. Y. Herald.] Before 9 o'clock the soldiers, under the command of Lieut. Paterson, had been placed in wagons and driven to the scene of the emigrant camp, where the criminal was to expatiate his crime. Some of the soldiers were posted on the adjoining hills to guard against sur prise. The wagons were meanwhile placed in line near the monument and army blankets fastened over the wheels. Behind this screen the squad of men who had been appointed to shoot Lee were to be stationed. The purpose of this concealment of the firing party was to prevent the men composing it from being seen by any one, there being a fear that some of the numerous rela tives of Lee might wreak vengeance on the heads of his executioners. The boards of which the coffin was to be formed were next unloaded from a wagon and the carpenters began to nail them together. It was a rough pine box. While it was being made Lee sat at some distance away with Marshal Nelson intently watching the scene around him. The civilians began to arrive just then, and those specially invited as wit nesses were allowed to come within the military enclosure. All of the others were allowed to witness the proceedings from a considerable distance east of the ravine. Lee sat like an Indian chief near the spot where he was to die, as cool and collected as ever. He began writing an autograph note in the Dis trict Attorney's memorandum book. Then he exchanged a few words with the Rev. Mr. Stokes. At 10:30 o'clock the military were drawn up in line and closer up to the scene of execution. Then the photo grapher made his appearance on the scene. Soon after this the prisoner 1 arose, and holding the arm of Mr. Stokes and preceded by the Marshal and District Attorney, advanced I toward the little corral of wagons. The coffin had been in the meantime placed about twenty-five feet from the wagons. Lee was dressed in a gray coat and light brown overcoat. lIe seated him self on the coffin as soon as he arrived at it. As soon as he seated himself he looked around hurriedly, though coolly. A few minutes were then occupied by the photographer, who took a picture of the condemned man and the grouped line of spectators. Then the reporters were invited to approach, and Marshal t Nelson read the death warrant. Dur ing the reading of the document the prisoner manifested no emotion, and on t its conclusion he was informed that he could then speak if he desired. He proceeded to deliver his random speech. His voice was very clear and his manner self-possessed, but he talked sometimes with remarkable precision, and then rushed off into a humid style. When he spoke of Brigham Young's treatment of him he exhibited feeling. The speech ended, Lee requested the Rev. Mr. Stokes to offer a prayer. and both knelt beside the coffin. The minister prayed with fervency for the prisoner and his family, and asked that if he was an innocent man, as he pro fessed to be, his innocence might be es tablished hereafter. Then the reporters withdrew, Lee took off his overcoat without assistance and shook hands with Mr. Stokes, Marshal Nelson, Dis trict Attorney Howard, and a few others. The handkerchief was tied over his eyes, and as it was being done he asked the Marshal not to tie his hands. The favor being granted, Lee clasps his hands over his head, bracing himself up at the same moment, ex claiming, ' Enter my heart !" All near the prisoner stepped aside, and Marshal Nelson, at a little distance u to the southwest, pronounced the words, "Ready--aim-fire I" A flash was can, nnti T,'.U toll o~ur witn a unll tnut upon his coffin, his arms falling on both sides of the box then there came three or four slightly disconnected reports. Lee's pulse ceased to beat probably at the moment his heart was penetrated. Several of the five balls with which he a was shot passed entirely through his body, and cut ridges in the ground in C the rear. Nine guns were fired in all, R four of them containing blank cartridg es. Three of the balls penetrated the heart, making but one hole on the body. A few minutes after the shooting a coraoral fainted in the ranks. The body was placed in the coffin and a 1 photographic negative was obtained of t, and the spectators were allowed to view it. The color had entirely left the - ace, the mouth had fallen open. The I Doflln was nailed up at once, to be taken by the soldiers to Cedar City, and thence Lo Lee's wife Rachel in Pangwitch. Before execution Lee gave what .oney he had to the District Attorney o be given to Rachel one of his wives. Re gave his coat to Marshal Nelson and is scarf to Howard. I PACKARD'S LAST TRUMP. Which Has Been Badly Played and Euehres Him. [Special to N, Y. Trbune.] WASHINGTON, March 25.-Some Wash ington lawyers think that Packard has injured his own case by demanding Federal interference under the provis ions of the constitution and the law of 1792. His application will be considered at an early Cabinet meeting this week, and will introduce an entirely new question into the Louisiana case-one that has not yet been considered by the President or his Cabinet. That ques tion is whether or not the case as pre sented by Packard is one of those con templated by the constitution and the laws in which military interference by the general government is warranted. During more than eighty years the government of the United States has interfered in purely State affairs only twice-once in Rhode Island and once in Pennsylvania. During the eight years of President Grant's administra tion six such instances of interference occurred-two in Louisiana, two in South Carolina, one in Arkansas, and one in Texas. It is no secret that many very able Republican lawyers are of opinion that in several if not in most of these cases interference was unconstitu tional and illegal; and it is believed that the sentiment in the Cabinet is almost unanimous against any intervention in State affairs which can possibly be avoided. On the vital question of the continuance of this system of * interference the Cabinet is an entire unit. Intervention, if it should take place under the present Administration, must be temporary, and under circumstances which place its necessity beyond question. There may have been some difference of opinion as to the details of the management of the question in the two disturbed States so far as it relates to the particular time when the troops already supporting Packard and Chamberlain shall be with drawn, or as to the conditions which shall precede their withdrawal; but 14` " the it princip SELF-IIEATING, 'U0111 DNIIISI.0I One Whole Set tr Irony in one, ONE IRON, WITHI TWO PLUGS, WILL D( ALL TilE IRONING AND FLUTIN(l ONE HAND CAN 1)0 WITH ANY NUMIEIt OF IRONH.
