Mr. Goose, for the juedii Committere, re.
ported on Stoue bill No. i1I, relative to ot.ening
Thee remark of Mr. ugstle were in the follow.
lng words:
notice in the Dmoioonr of this morning what
iptports to be a statement w ado by Mr. HRtoht
ison0, to which that ~entleman etates that in a
conversation with me I advoeate4 certain poaties
for the United States Denate. The statement, so
far that I advocited that seven members, re
turned by the Returnling Board, who are not now
present, should take their seatse i this body,
Wos correet.
I have elways oouourred in the belief that no
legally eleoted Senator should be exeluded, and
whenI have heard that any legally eleoted imetw
her of the House has taken his seat in that body,
I have always felt prattBled at that frot. I have
stated to the Oommisilon that that was the only
lelal solution; that this was the lrglly ouneti
toted General Assembly, and that members hold
ing their seats here were welcome, and that any
member who here appeared and qualified on one
of these foors ehouItf be recognised.
lilt I And the statement made that I was in
favor of the election of two Reputblican Senators
to the United trates Senat. Tllis is absurd, and
I cannet aoount fbr it.
In the drst place, my credentials are before the
United States Benate, where I have appetared,
clalming that I have been iatlly e.loted, and it
would he strange for me to lake such a position
as stated after the aestIranees I have had that
I would be seated, and after conversatlons by
Mr. Morton with a gentleman who told me that
Morton said that he (Morton) would be comn
pelled to vote to seat me.
It would be strange after those asertances that
I would advocate the eleetiot of a teputbleran in
my place. In regard to my easse I have taken the
positton that tny right was unquestionable to that
seat, and I have no reason to doubt that I will
secntre my meat. I am the last person that would
oonsent that any lnpublioan shouid take the meat
in my stead. I have never told Mr. lntohblon or
any one else that I would favor sending any Be
publloan to the denate in my place, or for
the long term, I have gone so far
as to say that into my opinion if
Hayes wanted a tenator to support bhi policy
as to the establlshment of the governments of
Hampton and Nicholls, that he could place far
more reliance for the snpport of his Southern
pollev, If such it be, in a l)emocratio Senator
than in a Republican elected by a oulthern
Legislature. It was a well known ftact that Hayes'
OCabinet ould not have been confirmed but fur
the votes of the bouthern Democrats.

first section was adopted.
An amendment being offered to the second see
tion, for the Governnor to appoint, Mr. Goode
said he was rather disposed to give the city full
control of ite police and municlpal duties. If wre
give to the parishes the right to select its justices
and other offoors, why not permit the city,
throaugh its Council, to choose these recorders
instead of having thenm appointed by thie GQov
erns r?
Mr. chabrlie, like Mr. Goode, was opposed to

The House resumed its separate session.
Mr. lilien, of Lafourobe, introduond a resolu
tion providing for the compensation of the clerks
of certain committees.
Mr. McGehee ,tiered an amendment providing
that the elerks of thoese committees be paid for
the number of days that they have actually
served. He did not wish the clerks to be paid for
doing nothing.
Mr. Young, of Mast liaton Rouge and Mr.
Cressy, of Orleans, said they were in favor of
economy and ref rm, but the clerks employed by
the committees were in constant attendance on
the committees and subjegt to their orders.
Mr. MoGehee said that he knew of one commit
tee where a special contract was made with the
clerk to pay him only for the time for which they
were actnily emplnyed.
Cain ta rtain said because the committees had
failed to make such contracts, was no reason why
the olerks should not be paid.
Mr. Young took a similar view, and contended
that the law said that the clerks should be paid
seven dollars a day and did not exclude tundays.
He thought it was small economy to deprive the
clerks of iheir per diem.
Mr. Huntington argued against the amend
ment from a legal p lt of vicrw, or law and
equity, and besides, on the ground of the im
practicability of determing the time during
which the clerks had been employed.
Mr. MoGehee contended that the clerks had
not been legally appointed. Ile wanted to settle
the matter now for the future.
Gen. Young replied by asking how the rule
would epply to the gentleman himself, who had
been absent from the House for several days.
Hew would it apply to other members who had
also absented themselves? He thought that
certainly no member of the House would vote
to out down their per diem benause they had
been absent.
The yets and nays were called on a motion to
lay on the table Mr. McOehee's amendment.
Yeas 30 nays 84. Lost.
Cain itartain was on his feet again, and made a
vociferous argument in favor of paying the
clerks who had been engaged on a solemn con
tract. He moved to reconsider the vote by which
the House refused to lay on the table Mr. Moes
hee's amendment.
Mr. MoGehee spoke again. The law taid that
the clerks were to be employed with nutborina
Lion of the House, and it was only on the thirty
thi, d day of the session that such authorization
was asked.
Mr. Young said the resolution placed before
him, as ilhairman of the Committee on (lontin
gent Expenses, the alternative of violating the
law or of violating the instructions of the 1o iuse.
And as he had the lonse in greater awe than the
law hei would follow the instructiois of the Hlonse.
lie would vote for Mr. Motebee's amendment
since I seemed to be favored by the House.
The House refused to reconsiler the vote by
which they refused to lay the amendment on Ithe
Mr. Creesy, of Orleans, sengirsted the neces
sity or paying in full the clerk of the Judisiary
Hr. Huntington said that he would oppose the
amendment, for in doing so he was doing an act
of consistency and complylng with the law, which
was explicit in thin matter or paying the olerks.
At the suggestion of Mr. Billi.n, Mr. MoOebee
offered another amendment, r, qiritng that the
clerks should be paid for the number of days they
have actually been engaged, ezoept the clerks of
the Enrolling, the Contingent Expeises and the
Judiciary Committees, who shall be paid for full
Mr. Oarloss, of Webster, and Mr. 3askins, nt
Lincoln, both opposed the amendment on grounds
already stated.
The yeas and nays being called on the adoption
of the amendment remulteo in 18 yeas, 29 nays.
The resolution was then adopted, Mr. Voorbies
however, giving notioe ,hat to-morrow he would
move a reconsideration of the vote.
Mr. Toler, of Itich'and called up ihne bill
No. 828, to appropriate 81100 for assessment and
tax collectors' colls.
The House resolved itself into

Mr. T'iler explained that a previous appropria

Another requires the BSuperintendent of Publi

Mr. Bowden objected to the last words, whieh
would leave it to the discretion of the Superin
tendsnt, who should be required positively to
visit the schools at least once a year.
Mr. Lyons was of the same opinion, and he
moved to strike out section second which would
leave the law as it now is, making it the duty of
the Superintendent to make the visit in the coun
try parishes. Consideration of the bill was post
poned for fifteen minutes, to permit Mr. Voorhies
to present the following

colored delegation from a city itepubli
can club. From the number of darkles
who put in an appearance, the whole club
must have been out. The consultation
with them occupied all the morning,
and a long story or Packard's wrongs
was piteously told,

There was some very strong lanattago used
over this compromise talk, and many "euss"
words shook in the air.
There is considerable differencte of opinion

The reception yesterday afternoon was that of
the representatives of the colord people here.
Abumt thirty members were present, all claiming
to be property holders. They said that they had
made large sacrifices for the sake of the Packard
government, and the upholding of the National
eonstitution. They further said that inasmuch
as they had
they believed it was their duty to uphold Pack
ard s government to the last, and that the main.
tenance of Packard was necessary to the salvwa
tlon of the negro race. Col. Jim Lewis was the
chairman of this committee and H. U, Astwood
was the secretary. The special commission was
with this delegation until quite a late hour. After
the delegation had retired
POuS OTalTLMdiMN uVno Tri t(! ONTIY
were Introduced. They were old-time planters
and knew the people of the Btate well. They
had voted in the last election for Hayes, but now
thoght Nicoholls should be the Governor and
ought to be sustained. They said that if Pack.
arbd should attempt to pry into the weakness of
the present situation, there would be a sangula.
ary result, and to this everybody agreed. In
other words, Packard would rather remain in a
subordinate condition than be an aspirant for
any promotion.
Other property holders lsoevisitre the commait
tee, and said that the recogn'ton of tihe Nicholls
I government would do more towards effeoting a
pacification of the people here than anything else.
After the visit of the members of the colored
committee the Counetl of the city was admitted,
and they gave a suoOinct statement of the sffairs
of the city under both ltepltbli'an and Demo

The case of IlRaslie and Louiso Maenhant,
who reside in Belgitum, and others, against the
city or New Orleans, the Lounlians National
lank, New Orleans (Canal and Banking Company,
ltiberuia National lBank, Levee Steam Cotton
Press Ceampany, Eager, Ellerman &A (Jo. and
Wm. Van Norden, was before the United States
Circuit Court Tresrday on the chancery side.
It will be recalled that in this case there
is involvetI the questlio or the legality of the
issue of premilum bonds by the city.
The bill in chancery sets forth that the oom
plainants are the holders of consolidated bonds
issnued by the city under the authority of an aot of
28 Feb unary, 1I59, to consolidate the muniolpal
ities of the city. This not required that no obli
gation or evidence of lndebtedness whatever ex
cept those anutholied in the aPt, was to be Issued
by the city, nor should any loan be contracted
unless authorized by a vote of the people.
Is violationa of this it is alleged in the bill that
there is now ottat:ending a bonded eity debt of
ovaer twentv-two, millions of dollats.
The oomplainanits claim that thley are entitled
to a epoolit tel on the real estate of the city to pay
the interest on the consolidated bonds, and
that it, be decroed that the first and
paramount dtly of the authorities each
year before anry act te done, Is to provide ade
quately the sumn of $1ti50,00 for the paymont of
such interest, and thaat, an injunction be granted
to I'strain the city from payinig any of the bonds
issloed itlltir 18;9.
E. Blermtudez, for the plaintiff, presented the
case in an elshatrate argument, contendirg that
the act of 185 havang been decided by Judge
Wood to be a contract, the subsequent issues of
honds, in disregard of the conditions of said act,
were a violation thereof, and especially the act of
1876, authorizing the premium bonds and to
pealing all previn us acts, providing for the issue
of bonds, and limiting the tax of the city to 1%.
This last aot had been passead by the Legleslature
after the commeucement of tidl suilt, and after
the decision of Judge Wood that the oct of 1852
createi a contret lan favor of the consolidated
bondhUders; that the premium bond oact was a
gross prververin of the tax which had been
to pay the interest on the consolidated bonds.
All such acts by the Legislature or the city gov
ernment were illegal and void, and the equity
powers of the court were appealed to, to declare
suach Illegality, to compel a spectfloperformanee
of the contract with the consolidated bondhold
era, and to enjoin and prohibit the appliaetion of
the taxes on real estate, imposed and collected
by the city, to any other object, until the $650,000
required to be set aside for the consolidated
bonds ehould be appropriated to satisfy that
debt. Mr. Bermudez referred to and read from
the report of the Master in Chancery, Judge T.
Wharton Collina, to show that already the city
was a delinquent to the amount of over two mIll
lions of dollars, which were due to the consoll.
dated fund. He also read various authorities.
Henry T. Miller replied for the city, and argued
that the plaintiffs had obtained all the relief
which equity could give; that their claim to be
paid was not disputed, and the necessary fund
would be provided for, and this was all their pro
posed daairee called for; no mandamus was asked,
or could be granted by that court. But it was
impossible to concede that these plaintiffs could
by virt e of the act of 1852, forever tie up and
control the political discretion of the State to
regulate the taxing power of a political corpora.
Mr. Miller argued tiese points at length, citing
several aulhorites. At the close of has speech,
the courat alj turned over until to-day, when Mr.
Jonas far, tie city, and Judge John A. Oampbell
for the pluntiffe, will Olose the argument.

With hair, where glnts of gold" ligh*t

This maldea's eyes, like April shief,
Are full of changing dleehel
In merry glanse the blue trbs dasee,
Tha droop their humid lashes.
With sun-ll smilel and mery wiles
She stirs my hert's reoese,
And morrow's gloom o'er mel'ry'i t@omb@
Soethes with her dear earesses.
With almble Angets, deft and sIei,
Behind my chair she'll steal,
To pull my ear or plusk my hisn,
And every other misohieft 's i
That rougseh maidens feel.
Her presence li msy sole delight,
I'm dreary when she goes;
I fear me, old Time's tiresome flight
Will bring my pet to women's height,
Bre I have reaped his snows.
Ah me I these numbing strokes of fate,
These stinging blows of time,
How lies win love, and love turne hate,
How trl.ts come early, and doebtt some late,
And moekings follow thyme.
