Onming in contact with poor people only-for as a tule these minor courts adjudl ~ate upotn minor eases only-the deputy eon stable and his action never aroute the Indig nation ofithose who can afford to eonftand justice, and hence many outrages they have committed have never seen the light of day. There aresgood constables, men of judgment and forethought, but from the statements given below it is pretty sure that all of them do not belong in that category. T'h first dstatement is fronm an attttney who veuches for Iti truth: anll Ariit. On last Priday COnstabl, Caylat ,4 the ..venth Justice's Ooutt repaired to the house ot a Mr. Glaser, on Peniston street, be tween 0Contance and laurel, for the purpose of execating a writ of seizure otained on a judgment rendered In the above court against Mr. Glaser for the sum of ten dollars. The Mwalous myrmidon of the law boldly matched Into the back yard of the premises, and after aseertaining that Mr. and Mrs. Glaser were both out, having left their little children, aged respectively two and nine years, in charge of the house, tiled to effect an en trance into the premises from the back way; but finding the door locked he proceeded to the S'net and by whistling summoned a negro whom, it seems, he had brought along. Hie then indueod a bry of about eight years of age, who was attractil to the spot by curl osity, to climb INTO ONI OF TiS WINDOWS of the front room and unlock the front door and admit him. The pair then moved a part of the furniture and other articles contained in the rooms to the sidewalk, where they piled them in a promisctous heap, and in so doing broke a handsome marble cross valued at $25, tore a mosquito bar from the bed and otherwlse injured and defaedl the furniture by thle rough usage. After Oaylat had almost finished ransack ing the house, Mr. Olaser and his wife ap peared upon the seene, and were coolly told by Caylat that he had committed this act for the purpose of satisfying said judgment of $10, no demand having previouely been made. Leaving his wife in charge: Mr. Glaser, ac companled by Jaylat, went to the Meventh Justice of the Peace Court and paid the judg ment. On returning home he discovered that Jaylat had UN..tOCID tHI AnMOIR, the key having been left by Glaser on a table in his bedroom, and that everything contained therein had been turn upside down, and, what was worse, that $201 50, the hard earned savings of himself and wife for many years, were missing. On discovering his loss Mr. Glaser again proceeded to the Seventh Justice Court and charged Caylat and his negro assistant with breaking and entering his house with Intent to steal and with com mitring grand lardeny; a warrant being issued they were both arrested. On Monday (laylat, who it seems had been released on ball, again put in an appearance and attempted to exe cute another judgment for a like sum of $10 from the above mentioned court, without making any previous demand. Mr. Glasre wai out. and the valiant consta ble seeing no one about except Mrs. Glaser, thought to repeat his performance of last iriday, but met with rtsistanoe from that lady. Becoming enraged at her temerity in thus resisting one who was clothed with the majesty of the law, Caylat struck Mrs. ti er in the face with something which he held in his hand, causing THU BLOOD TO FLOW freely over the face and clothes of the unfor tunatn woman. Alarmed at the fact that the neighbors, attracted by the cries of Mrs. (Maser, were hastening to the scene, and fear ing for his personal safety, Caviat fled, and was pursued Iy several of Mrs. (ULser's neighbors, and, not relishing the Idea of [alllng into their hands, jumped into a ear and, inducing the driver (a friend of his) to drive at great speed, escaped and roturned to the court from w-hence he came. Not long after the above had transpired, Mrs. laseor wended her way to the court for the purpose of making a charge of assault and battery against Caylat, CUT THAT WORTHY was on the look-out, and before she could ac complish her plurpose he caused Mrs. (Glaser to be looked up under the charge of resisting an tfficer in the discharge of his duty. On Thursday (Cavnt mand his negqro assist ant apneared bfoe. .Judge O'Itlurkn, of the weonth ,usticen tof the Pe'vtm (Court, to answer the charge plrfoerre. I against them by Mr. SIlaser of hbaking and entering with intent te stnial and cormnnitthin grand I aroony. The evideneo of the witne ses for the prostcution was very full; the manner in which Cayliat and his accomplice entered the house; the fact that (OSylat unlockedo the armoir whore the money was kept, and also that the money was in the armoir at the time Mr. and Mrs. Glaser LEFT THE HOUBE and went out, being sworn to. The prisoners were discharged, the Judge holding that under article 762, Code of Prao tice, Cylat and his accomplice had acted under the law so far as their entering the house was concerned. As to the missing $201 50, the judge held that as it had not been proven that the money was seen in the hands of either Caylat or the negro, he could not do anything but release them. The above occurrence ought to be investi gated by the Grand Jury. In order that no lnhustco might be done, the following statemtent by the oDputy, Caylat, was taken by a DEMOCRAT reporter: "On Saturday May 19, 1 had a little judg ment of lawyer harrfs' to execute. I called on Glaser repeatedly to advise him to nay it, and he never would come down to settle. He always avoldhd me and secreted himself. When the constable ordered me to seize, I went there and found the gate opened and nome children in the yard. I asked them where their father was, and they said he was ln the neighborhtod. I saw a little boy there, and I asked him to take a step-ladder and get. in the window, and he did so and got in and anlooked the door for meand I entered. With the amestamnce I had with me as two witnesses, I commenced to make the seizure, making an Inventory of the artidles. Just as I oom mr2 doing this Mrs. Glaser, wife of the de tt, came in and commenced making redaltane When I read the writ to her and my a thqyMt, I asked her if she would pay the t to avoid a seizure, saying if she did not uld be compelled to sze.

A Mutnal Admiration soelty Welcmae lls Return-Arrival of the Trooop at Lake Charles. Kellofgg's arrival with a flul ,l.udet of news made matters a little more lively about the C(ustom-hi-IouR on aturday mornIng, when his a)ppa'ance In tihe ('ldlettCo r's o0lh(' was the signal for naEArTY ONOtATtOr,ATIONs on the part of his Republtian friendis. With the ex-(,ovenlor, Judge ( Oant, of St Landry, was present, and soon after their ap peareancne quite a number of leading liepubil can lights dropped in for the purpose of pay ing their respects to the would-be ~lenator, untIl the crowd got so large that additional chairs had to be secured to accommodate them, the largest chair, in fact, a rocker, be ing filled by Kellogg's former co-patriot. An toine, who was one of the early birds. The ex-hovernor contemplates remaining in the city iut a few dlays, when he will take himseV TO TIM TeCHE, where he v nill reain ton ti plantation be longing to himself and Mr. Wills for a few weeks, then return to the city and start North to spend the summer. From all that o could t ic'rlue from those who conversed with him yesterday, it is evi dent that, with Butler and oneo or two more, they have induced the President to consent to a stay in proceedings in any further appoint ments for the present, the President even per mlttlng Pitkln to remain in undisturbed pee ,session of his Ipresent position, even after his resignation A1)i BEIN REQUEHTLh by the Attorney (leneral at the Prealdent's suggestion. If-thi report- in ctreulatiaon betr, -Pru, itkin Intimidated the President a trifle by refusing to comply with the request, and Just about that time Ben Butler paid his respects to President Hayes, with another influential (?) personage, and told him that Pitkln had in times gone by stumped sixteen States for the Republican party, and more than that, he had been first and foremost in the last campaign in this State, beglaning that campaign a year before the election; and further, that he did nearly all of the work in the country (mean ing the organization of the councils of free dom), and for these and divers other reasons he, the President, bhad better not remove Pitkin. HAYTI 5 TOOK THE HINT, as he (did not care to incur Butler's dis ploasure, and Gen. Wharton's chances wero for the time being dashed to the ground, but not until some of those bho had interested themselves in Pitkin's 'iehalf, Packard's friends, had raked up everything they could think of against (Gon. Wharton and had sent it to Washlngton, where it was laid before the President. Of course Gen. Wharton has not boon idle all this time, and being somewhat conservative In his ideils when matters of right nl' concernred, he at once advisend his friends of what was going on, and Ihey are now arranging matters to give Pitkin A NEW DI)EA which may not, st s, well beforei the hand is played out. Kellogg, of course, is banking on Pitkin's continuance in ollitc, as he fears that with Wharton in possession it might not be so easy with him in case old Federal mat tirs connected with his C(ustom-Houso man agement were brought to light. As far as can be learned, the Returning Board iniluonce don't care much about Pit kin's retention, one at least having expressed hlnlself to the effect that Wharton would much better suit the native Roepublicans than Pitkin, and that may, with other influence, have som wleight at Washington, though there is jill now no possibility of a change for some weeks. THE PENSION OFFICE, that sweet little morsel that pays about $10, 000 a year in greenliacks has just now three prominent ReDublicans fishing for it to say nothing of a few dozen lessor lights. The chief Modoes In the war are Dibble, Burch and an attorney named Hutchinson, Dibble's support lies in Warmoth, leo. A, Sheridan, a certain prominent Missouri Re publican and the fact that he is a one-legged soldier of the Federal army, andl in documnen tary pleadings he lays great Stress upon the last named support. IBurch's principal support is his color and what he claims to be a following of colored citizens, and the fact that he was a Hayes elector, but says nothing ABOUT BOUNTY JUMPING, which has been referred to from another source. Hutchinson, whose application is on tile at Washington, has support in the fact that he is a personal friend of Hayes, and the tri-angular contest goes on between the three, with the chances in favor of Burch being left out of the race altogether. The attack on the President for the position of Naval Officer is now made by Nash, Kelso, Joubert and a dozen or two others, with no prospects of a change for some time. The United States Marshal has a telegram. announcing the arrival at Lake Charles of the two companies of troops, and from the tonor of the dispatch it is inferred that the Dix conveyed them to their destination with out difficulty at the bar. The dispateh says also, in an invidious way, that the larshal's keepers wa ild not act un less unless permitted to do so by the citizens.

"THII MIPORItW1RAl" And a Pew Ideas Caneealing Field "ports. We welcome to the journalisteic brotherhood The -portsman, a spicy weekly, which fills up an important gap in our metropolitan jourtalism. The Fgportsman, as its name in dicates, is devoted exclusively to the record ing and encosraging of those amusements which have the flood and field for theatre, and tend more than all others to the development of mathood and the perfection of phyelcal faculties. Some philosophers have labored to estab lish a distinction between the soul and the mind, and high scriptural authority has been quoted in favor of that theory, as for exam ple, Jesus Christ saying that he lelt troubled "even to the division of the soul anrd he mind" (ueqtse ad dthisione nnic et spirittus). A e.rtain gentleman .'ell known in litera ture named Bulwer, has even written a very entertaining novel on the subject, entitled "A Strange Story." We admit that we have a certain weakness for these questions, but time is precious, and we eqnnot afford to squander it upon meta physics, which, between the reader and our selves, may be very entertaining, but can scarcely be said to be useful or practical. No doubt, however, there is some such thing as soul, mind or spirit, and we will call it "mind," to suit our present purposes. We deal in facts, and "mind" is a fact which has a a great deal of aflnittv with the body. The body reacts upon it, and it reacts upon the body so closely and practically, indeed, that the health of the one is necessary to the proper working of the other. Athletic sports, whether on the flood or in the field, strengthen the body, thereby cultivating the mind, atnd the sports that require skill and patience nre very favorable to the mind, in that they rest it from the routine of every-day work, direct it towards new and prd.tical channels, and invigorate the body at the same time by means of exposure to the sun, the breathing of fresh air, and the exhilaration nvcessaarily incident upon any close contact with universal nature. It is the old fable of Hercules wrestling with Anteus, the son of Cybele; whenever he was thrown to the ground he would gather new strength from contact with his mother, so that Hercules, in order to vanquish him, had to lift him up in his arms and smother him in a deadly embrace. Thus the sports man gathers tlew life and vigor by coming in contact with nature, the universal mother. It is the general custom of practicing and education in athletic and sportsmanlike exer clses that have made the English nobility the finest in the world. Their healthy bodies, in vigorated by exercise in the open air, give the proper balanone to their well-trained minds, and place them mentally and physically in the front rank of the world's aristocracy. So much for the efficacy and utility of sports and the mission of the sportsman. Our young and lively contemporay ap peared on Saturday of last week with quite an erudite article commending and commenting upon the three articles of the DEMOCRAT con cerning what to eat. It suggests that we do not stop there and that we continue our learned discuisitions on that subject. So it is our intention to do hereafter, now and then, as we go along. In its article the Hp ortsman discourses with quite erulite literature about frogs and crabs; in fact, to a certain extent it exhausts the frog question, but we scarcely think that it did sumclent justice to the crab. That delicate clistuxm.us animal, which, whether boiled in salt water, stuffed amrtservel -a in in ts- wn sFtl, or made the basia of gumbo, of course under the supervision of a scientific cook, is remarkably nutritious and palatable, deserved a more ex tensive notice at the hands of our contem pograr'y.,. . Without him what would become of the ten der youths, male and female that visit our watering places on the Lake coast to Idle away the lazy but warmhearted summer? Hoe 'would the barefooted boy do If there were no crabs to entice from the measurable depths of the shallow sea with the traditional piece of meat tied to the end of the proverbial string. Ah, the memories of boyhood! How fresh they are, and how they caress the soul "like the scent of some last prim rose in the air." The legs dangling from the side of the not dangerously precipitous wharf. The eyes following the twisted twine as it makes a tangent after passing the surfaco of the transparent light green water, the piece of beef on the end of the twlne and the conliding eral approaching the tantalizing trap. What hallowed remin iscences I What anxiety when the tenacious crustacean is being gently pulled up by wary and trembling hands, and what triumph when the diminutive monster has teen hauled up and deposited In the basket! Can such memo ries ever be forgotten ? Time may pass, love. may be oblliterated, dreams of glory may vanish, Fortune, slippery as the oeel, may glide through our lingers, but the con queriing sensaltion experolceu l by the small I oy when he has victoriously pulled up the crab of his bhgone days is a monument of the past that can neither hs overthrown nor obliterated. For the young lady, just out from school, who enjoys time luxury of having a first lover, how conveniently does this crustacean sport come in. lie holds the unm brella over her head, that Is to protect her from the kisses of the garish sun, and to screen both from the prying eyes of unappre ciative parents. What secret ecstacies, what pure and holy aspirations, what thrilling sensations caused by the mere contact with a white linen dress find sacred refuge behind that umbrella, the angels only know, but owing to our very slight acquaint ance with those otherlal beings they have not communicated the same to us. It is a notice able fact, however, that the sportive crab Is comparatively safe in the environs of the line that descenls from that umbrella covered group, and veterans boast of many a square meal taken beneath its protecting shades. But the crab is not only a source of enjoy ment to the masculine youth, or a poetical pretext for half-grown up lovers. Sacred his tory shows that this malled hero of deep and shallow sea waters has been elevated at times by the Deity to the rank of an intelligent in strument for the performanoce of undeniable miracles. We believe it was St. Francis Xavier, the immortal missionary who, when traveling on a Spanish galley, bound for some forlorn isle of the ocean, whose inhabitants the renowned preacher had the mission of converting to Christianity, unaccountably dropped in mid ocean and lost a valued cross which had been given him by a brother saint and martyr, to which was attached numberless plenary indulgences. Wrapt In holy meditations, St. Francis reached the shore of tke destined island un conscious of his loss. The treading on terra firma, the uncouthly sight of the heathenish natives, or something that cannot be imagined or expressed, brought him back to earth again, and it was then that he became con scious of what he deemed an irreparable loss. Immediately the saint fell on his knees, facing the immense ocean, and bowing his reverend head in submission, thanked the Almighty for having deigned to honor him with so severe a trial. When lo and behold, out from the foaming crests of the lashing waves, grave in deport ment and stately in demeanor as one who was entrusted with a sacred mission from high and undisputed authority, came sidling up a venerable crab, holding up in one of its mag nificent claws graefully elevated the identical cross with indulgences attached which the saint had dropped in the unfathomable depths of the ocean. We will not describe the scene that followed, or how the crab retired to pur sue its usual avocations, but the legend says that the heathelish tribes were so thunder struck by this extraordinaryproceeding that they immediately embraeed Christianity aad forgot their former questionable appetite for broiled missionaries and ship captains on the half shell. We could write volumes upon the crab questiok, but we dout whether in the long run we should continue to be interesting and as the philosopher says, "In dubic abstinens.' We abstain._ _ uniying the Fast. We thank the committen of arrangements for the decoration of the graves of the Fed eral dead by the soldiers of both armies, at the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, for an in vitation to attend the etremonies and the feast prepared for the occasion. We would gladly be participants at the reunion of the blue and the gray over the memories of the past, but editorial and other duties will keep us at home, which will not, nevertheless, pre vent us from participating in spirit at the feast of love and reunion. The Paelfle Railroad After the Eleetion. A DI)FnMoeAT reporter visited the office of the New Orleans and Pacifl Railroad Com pany yesterday for the purpose of learning what would be the next step of the corpora tion, now that the tax had been defeated. President Wheelock was not in at the time, and the only person in the office was the hook-keeper, Mr. Florance. Thil gentleman could give no Information relative to the future atlIon of the company, but intimated that there would he an early meeting of the directors, when the whole matter would he laid before the board. He expressed consid erable disgust at the outeome of the election, but did not by any means leal the reporter to believe that the work would not .e pushed now harder than before. A Seelentifle DInner. On Friday evening a select company gath ered together under the shaule of Eastman's grove, on Metairle Rlidge, to enjoy a dinner, whose principal featurrn were' clam chowder, fried croakers, green 4trut and other deniozns of the deep done up in style. In the company was the president of an extensIve manufae turing establishment., two river captains and a learned anatomist. The time between courses was consumed in scientifie discus sions, the principal subject of debate being "do geese have marrow In their bones?" The question was decided negatively, and the conclusion arrived at that it went into their quills. Then the company adjourned, leav ing an empty beer keg and several dozen emnpty bottles strewn upon the grass In a monumental heap of what had been. The Fruit Growern' Assoelation. At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Fruit Growers' Assocation of the Gulf States, held in the rooms of the Howard As sociation, No. 58 Camp street, on May 20, it was resolved that the fourth annual exhibi tion of fruits, plants, flowers and agricultural products generally be held in the oity of New Orleans, on the 18th, 19th and 20th of July, 1877. ReferrIng to the above, I would earnestly ask the hearty co-operation of the citizens of New Orleans and the adjoining States in mak ing the fourth annual exhibition of the Fruit Growers' Association a grand success. Con tributions of merit solicited from all quarters. Admission free, and all articles entered free of charge. H. M. Wroonzs, Secretary. apirltuallkm Exposed. We are promised for Sunday next, June 3d, (to tb repeated on Monday and Tuesday following) some very extraordinary expo sures of that great humbug - spiritual ism. Prof. Harry Cooke, the note1 ex" poser of spiritualism, has selected for the purpose the Academy of Music for the nights mentioned above. Hle will among other things perform Dr. Sladn's slate writing, the tricks of the Davenport Brothers and of the - fy Brothers, mateiialisation a Il Katie King, which he will afterwards explain. We are only too happy to welcome the professor to this city, for his advent must serve to convince many intelli gent yet superstitious people who still be lieve in spiritualism. We could give our realers numerous extracts from the press of the country to support the reputation of Prof. Cooke. One will suffice, however. It is taken from that able and highly respectable journal the Boston Herald, and reads as fol lows: "The performances of this gentleman att assistat are simhnply Immense. Nothing ap proaching to them has ever been seen here before. Other exposures sink into simple in significance besido them. They are-what they should be-convincing to all fair-minded people, and any one not besotted with suier stition cannot fail to be cured by them of all faith in or respect for physical manifestations. Prof. Cooke is doing agrand work, and he is doing it so thoroughly that society must be under lasting obligations to him. Everybodly should see ulin." Only Five Dollars. A case of apparent extortion ocurred a dlay or two ago in Mandoville, which, however, proved to he a diamond-cut-diamond affair of the first water. Mr. A. Smith, an under taker, was charged with the duty of exhuming a body in that town and transferring the re mains to this city; the bod(y, having been placed in a large case, was being conveyed to the boat along the tramway of the Mande ville wharf, when the keeper claimed a wharf age fee of five dollars. The outrageous demand being resisted by the undertaker, he was informed that there could be no rebate, whereupon the undertaker jumped on board the lake steamer, telling the wharfkeeper that in that case he could keep the body. It soems thatthe wharf-keeper, not relishing the idea, concluded to embark the precious freight without claiming wharfage dues. TrAvELuXo huors --. L.

Saturday is not proliflc of any vast amount of news about the State-House generally, and yesterday was no exception to the rule. The State offices were well patronmized by those de siring information upon varlmsn points, and the usual batch of mail was piled in from the country. Gyo. Nicholls was at his offiee at noon and remained until until evening, when he left for a trip over the lake, to be absent until to-night. )During the day he. as ex-ofinclo president of the BOARD OF STATE ENOINEEIRS, attended a meeting of that board, during which Mr. Harrod was elected vice president and (Col. Hardee secretary. The board then adjourned, subject to call. Hubsequently the. Governor made a few ap pointments, which will he found in another column, and then examined the papers in the eaFe3 of two or three pirsons who were await ing sentence of death. The record of one ease was found defective, and that was referred to the Attorney (Gen eral, while the others were passed over for action during next week. An examination of the records shows that in several parishes, including Catahoula, St. Helena, Union and Webster, there have been no reeommendatlons FOR PARISH ASSF5qORs. and although the Governor has repeatedly requested the Senators and members of the House representing those parishes to make nominations for the positions, they have so far failed to do so. It is important that the as''ssmn,.tts should he made at once, in order that the taxes may be collected, and for that reason a few recommendations would meet with immie diate attention at the hands of the Governor. The canvass for discrepancies in the returns from the parish of St. Landry has boon nearly completed by Mr. Barhot, the H4M -retarv of; the State Board of Canvassers, and will ie pre~entale to-morrow or next day. A little investigation into the books of the State Treasurer shows that from May 14 4179, to November 1, 1577, the treasurer of the school board for the parish of East iaton Rouge, J. HF1R1 BURCH, one of the candidates for thle Penslon Office, has drawn from the current school fund the snug little sum of $17,585 77, and for the same period drew from the interest fund $2105 76, and for the last quarter's apportionmeht Burch got in December a voucher for $1539, making a grand total of $21,170 50, which Burch received as school hoard treasurer for the parish named, which parish he has not actually lived in one year since his first ap pearance in the State. An examination of his records will be made by the grand jury in the parish, and his cash accounts will be inquired into with a view of ascertaining just how much of this money BURCH PUT IN HIS OWN PCorET. He, of course, will be compelled to show just how much went for "repairs to school houst's," and in producing vouchers he will also have to prodtune the parties who did the work, as it is an easy matter to have vouchers prepared in the city.
