Leilsiaalani in Jtferson's Time-" I Be Not Care for Louislana." Nuw ONLAsUx, June 22, 1877. Mr. Editor -Raving seen in the press of New Orleans, and in newspapers out of the State, same kindly meant but in eGoteot statements as to the position which I occupied in Washington when fapplying for the naval office in this city, I beg leave to declare in your estimable journal that I received no " polite inti mation from any source whatever as to the impropriety of that position, in consequence of the character of my waompetitors." If it can be of any in terest to anybody, here is all that oc curred: Before my arrival In Washington, my friend Mr. Bancroft had asked a speola, audience of the President, and had re commended me to the executive patron. age, purely on literary grounds. Whet I saw the President on the first day oi miy arrival, he informed me of that fact himself, before I had seen Mr. Bancroft and I knew that I was supported by many other distinguished friends. J thought that it was proper for me to leave my claims in their hands, and therefore, in a long interview which I had with the President by appointment, I made no allusion to my aspirations, Dpring my stay in.Washington, I was treated with much courtesy by the Presi dent and the members of his Cabinet. When I departed, I addressed to him the following communication: WVASHINOTON, May 15, 1877. To the President of the United States: Mir-On the eve of my return to New Or leans, I have the honor to renew my thanks to your Excelleney for the policy you have pursued in relation to Louisiana, and to ex pressm ardent hope that it is to be contin ued. With ranegd to fhe office for which I have ventured toapply, merely on the ground of its being Intended, if granted, as an en couragement to literature in my person, and to the pursuit of intellectual distinction in the South, I should, perhaps, when taking the position referred to, have felt some alarm at yresumption, if such a man as Lieut. erman had not written to me, with a kindness never to be forgotten, a letter, on file in the office of the Secretary of the Treas ury, out of which I extract, from memory, the following passage; "I hope that my brother will appreciate your high character, and I rejoice at your willingness to serve the United States in a sphere so far below your abilities and ante cedents." Many other distinguished, but propably too partial friends, have expressed the same opinion. In conclusion, Mr. President, when taking respectful leave of your Excellency, I think it a duty to ou to myself, and to my fellow citizens of Louisiana, to say that I would not have applied for the office in your gift if I had not been under the sincere conviction that my appointment would not have exposed your Excellency to blame, but, on the con trary, would have been generally approved by tho Republicans and by the conservative Demcrats of the State, without distinction of party and color. That conviction be it said, in justification, If necessary, of the step I have taken was strengthened by the assurances of itepresentatives Ellis and Gib son and of others supposed to be equally well informed, whose impr ssions were that under the policy you intended to pursue, f happened to be precisely one of those men whom the President would seek to make the recipients of Executive patronage in the South. Thanking your Excellency for the favor done me in accepting a copy of my "History pZLouisiana," I bog leave to refer to those es which show the singular difficulty President Jefferson and Gov. Claiborne had to encounter in the formation of the territo rial and of the State government. The Louis ens almost universally refused to be office holders, Thy hadto be solilcited and coaxed into being official dopendents. Such was their original and native dignity of character I If that character has been since modified, it is due to circumstances which they have not been able to control and to influence which they could not resist. Whatever be your deesion in relation to my aspirations I do not hesitate to give you the assurance, kr. President, that it shall be .aonented with the utmnmt dlafrnn,.n This was followed by another letter written to Col. W. K. Rogers, the Presi dent's private secretary, and dated New Orleans, June 12,1877: Dear Sir-Seeing the appointment of Mr. Lewis to the N val Otice in the newspapers of to-day, and having had _esterday a con versation with Hon. John lis, one of our Representatives in Congress, who assured me that, from his knowledge, acquired during his recent visit at Washington, of the policy to be pursued by the President, I could not possibly be appointed to the offilee desired and the same impression having beeui made on the mind of Hon. Randall Gibson 4n this subject, there remains to me but one course to pursue, which is, to withdraw my name from further official consideration. I therefore beg you to send back to me Mr. Bancroft's letter which I left in your hands, and also a letter from the Now Orleans Academy Qf Sciences. Had I not been ad vised to rWefrain from being too precipitate, I would have acted as I do now, be fore I left Washington y for on a visit which I paid at the Executive Mansion with Gen. Gibson, I heard the President say otha gentman : "M poic must not be mistken My eteminaionIs to appoint none but Republicans to office. My appoint ments may not be the best but I must choose among the materials which I have at hand. For instance, I have appointed Judge King collector of your port. I might perhaps have made a more acceptable nomination. He is, however, a native and a Republican. I understand that your people are not pleased. They say that it is Anderson & Jo.; they may it Is the Returning Board. What of that ? Suppose it is the Returniug Board. Well I my friends elsewhere will say that It Is right. After all, I do not care for Louisiana; I care for coniiliating more Im portant-sections of the country, etc. I wish o nVerse more at length with youi, General, ontee Lousiana appointmnents. Please ride with me at 4o'clock to-day, andi we will talk on the subject." When (on. Gibson and myself went out, I looked at him steadily in the face without saying one word. He under stold ae, I uppose, for he said : "I am ex tremely pained at the President's language.' I replied, "'l am also much grieved- grieved for Louisiana, grieved for myself, and even for .the President. Mr. Bancroft, and Messrs. Shelley, Hutcheson and Durant, of the law firm of Durant & Horeor, are the only persons in Washington to whom I men tionea this conversation, and they seemed to be. all of them, sadly impresed by it. After this occurrence, *I concluded that a proper sense of dignity required me to withdraw my application, but I abstained from doing so in deference to friends who opposed my deter mination. This explanation is. I tgink, due to myself, under present circumstances. It now only remains for me to thank you for the courtesy and kindness exhibited in the relations which I had the pleasure of having with you during iny sojourn in Washington. This is, Mr. Editor, a truthful and -complete history of my application for "offloe and of its results-nothing more, :nothing less. Should it point to amoral, which may be turned to profit by our community, this publication will not be Twithout its use. Respectfully, CHARLES GAYARRE. BREAD-THE LOAF. Editor Democrat-The question of the size of the loaf seems to be coming up again for discussion, both in the City Mall and in the newspapers. Some eight or ten years ago this sub. Ject was brought prominently before the public. An old ordinance required bakers, when the best superfine flour was $9 per barrell to give twenty-seven ounces of bread tbr one dime. This or dinance was alilwred by the then Mayor * 1 * -we think, Dr. Kennedy-to lie dor mant for some time; but the complaint. became so loud and numerous about the smallness of the loaves, that the Mayor had to announce his intention of enforcing the ordinance. This brought out the opposition of the Bakers' Asso clation, and they had sufficient in fluence to have the old ordinance re pealed by the then Radical Common Council. The original ordinance was enacted here to meet the difficulty of the poor people not having any change less than five cents, and when the question was before the Council, some who were in favor of free trade, proposed to get over the difficulty by having the initials and the weight stamped on each loaf; others wanted the loaves to be made of either ode, two or four pounds, as in other StAtes, and for the sellers to have tickets for cents. His honor the Mayor would not sign an ordinance for either of these plans, but recommended one requiring the bakers to hang up placards in their shops with the weight of the five and ten cents loaves. This ordinance was passed, but never enforced. Again a clamor arose about small loaves, and the Bakers' Association went into cdn sultation with the Council and the pres ent ordinance was the result-which has also remained a dead ordinance up to this time. This is a question of the utmost im portance to the poor family. They must buy the five or ten cent loaf what ever the weight is. The rich man can bake his own bread. What the poor man wants is simply to know how much bread he is getting for his flde cents. Let him know this either by making the pound the standard, or by stamping the five cent loaf with the weight, and he will then go where he can get the largest and finest loaf. Very respectfully, your obedient ser vant. D. P.

Of tto French periodicals there are twenty at live ten of which are in Louisiana, six n in hew York, three in Massachusetts, ut three in California, and one each in od Illinois, Minnesota and Missouri. Of Spanish periodicals the United States published only 'twenty-two, eight of which are in New York, six in New W- Mexico, four in California, two in Texas, ot and one each in Missouri and Colorado. on The Dutch language counts eight ed papers all weeklies but one, and n. six of the eight are printed in ed Michigan while the others hail from ve Orange dity and Pella, in Iowa. The on Bohemian tongue boasts seven periodi. it tale, one of which the Svornost, is a h daily printed in Chicago, the others b- weekly. Two of these Bohemian jour nals, the Deluicke Listy and the Pokrok, are printed in Cleveland, Ohio, and the rest in Bacine, Iowa City and Omaha. en The Welsh tongue numbers six journals, he, three in New York and three in Penn l sylvania, The Portugese have two or monthlies, both in New York; the Poles tw two weeklies, both at Chicago; the se Italians one weekly, La Voce del Popolo, ty printed at Ban Francisco. There are Zd eighteen Scandinavian periodicals, two 0- thirds of which are printed at Chicago 8- in the Swedish and Danish. There is one Oherokee and one Choctaw weekly, ir both printed in the Indian Territory. As we have said, the German news is papers and periodicals are very numer t ous, numbering 377. Of these no less h than 74 are issued duily, and most of the others are weekly journals. The b State of New York issues the largest number of German periodicals-60 of all kinds; Pennsylvania coming in next with 59; Ohip stands third with 46, and Illinois-fourth with 38. IRISE JUDGES. The splendid Salaries They Get Both on and ofl' Duty. ir No professional or official men in the 0 world have so easy a time of it as the g Irish judges. The Lord Chancellor gets t $40,000 a year and a retiring pension, no 1, matter how brief a time he serves, of n $20,000. The Chief Justice of Ireland n has $25,000 salary and $17,500 retiring it penalon after fifteen years' service. The v thief Justice of Common Pleas has $23,000 a year and the Chief Baron the same. Their retiring pensions are $12,500. The five puisne judges have 1 $17,500 a year and retiring pensions on the like liberal scale. All the other judges of inferior courts are liberally t paid, and though the salaries are some thirty per cent lower than similar fune tionaries receive in En land, this is t amply compensated by the difference in - the cost of living. A house which would cost $3000 a year in London can be had c for $1000 in Dublin, and wages and ex f penses are more than thirty per cent 3 less in most respects. The Irish judges have, too, at least one-third less to do than their British brethren, who are very heavily tasked, owing to the im mense pressure of business in the Lon don courts. An Irish judge gets at least I four months' leisure in the year. The 6 Irish bench is almost invariably filled I by men of first rate ability, and it is rare to see its judgments reversed in the e House of Lords. s A GREAT HINDO PENSTIVAL. One of the great annual festivals of the Hindoos was lately celebiated upon the banks of the Sarju, a small tribu tary of the Ganges. The Brahmins and astrologers announced that a happy conjunction of the planets at the time would render the cccasion especially favorable for all who desired purifla tion of their sins by plunging into the river. Myriads of Hindoos rushed to the spot, determined to bathe without delay, but so great was the crowd that a number were crushed to death. Their bodies were immediately thrown into the water, with the idea that they would float direct to heaven. J. B. Walker, D.

France Asked to Shelter and Sustain the amez Gevernment. (N. Y. Herald.] President Baez is to-day convinced that the renewal of the annexation scheme to the United States would be a complete failure both here and at Wash ington. Yet he feels that his stay in power, unless he secures the support of some foreign government, is rather doubtful. He is in search of some power which will take charge of him. At first it was thought of making an appeal to Prince Blsmarck, by pointing out to His Highness all the advantages which the imperial government would derive from Samana Bay as a naval stationand by renewing all the fantastical and won derful reports about the richness of St. Domingo which at one time had been laid before President Grant. But it seems that Senor Baez. who never had any sympathy for the North Americans, has still less for the Germans. Pro posals of annexation or of a protectorate were some time ago made to the French government, but they resulted in nothing. Now that there is nothing to expect from the United States, now that there is no way to dupe the Germans, Mr. Baez recalling the old saying, "Qn revient toujours a se' premcres amours," comes back to France. Another appeal has lately been made to France by Baez, through the French Consul at this city. The French gov ernment is requested to use its interven tion, and to impress on the Haytian government the urgency of putting an end to the help afforded by the latter government to the Dominican insur gents on the frontiers. The same re quest had been urged on the American government when the annexation scheme was on foot. As a natural re ward of the service which France might render in this case, Mr. Baez promises to work out among the Dominican peo ple the idea of a French protectorate or annexation. As a matter of course the same fantastical and wonderful tales about St. Domingo, its wealth and the civilization of its inhabitants are told to the French government. At the same time the necessity is pointed out to an swer immediately to Mr. Baez's appeal in order to prevent an annexation to the United States, which, sooner or later, would be unavoidable. DORSUEIUER AND TILDEN. Tilden Can Never be tee Democratic Pre, w Identlal Candidate Again. 8' IN. Y. Tribune.] t Who will mourn for Tilden now? H: d faithful backer, Lieut. Gov. Dorahe I mer, has given hits: up with the remark m "You know as well as I do that to revii e Mr. Tilden as our candidate a secon 1, time is not possible. You saw his ph't a ical appearance, and that he could nc a be run again." This utterance is at r_ tributed to Mr. Dorshelmer by the No, , York correspondent of the Cincinna: Le Enquirer who makes him add in just: fication of his recent speech: " What I was trying to do was to keej the issue against the Republicans-t .o force the aggressive fighiting, and no is let this indignation go down. It is rep e resented in the person of Tilden, al though he will not be personally avail e able again." . This is cruel enough from the moutl o of a Fidus Achates, but Mr. Dorsheime goes further, and thus puts the entire blame for the failure on Mr. Tilden' shoulders: " Tilden not taking the Presidency his adversaries resume their antagon a ism. He is, however, an interesting ,f character. That system of procrastina e tion, which often brought him advan t tage, brought also his ultimate defeat f We pressed him during the campaigt t to do many things, and he would put them off, saying: 'Wait 1The majority o, things work themselves right.' Noe this often appeared to be so. * There, be would say, 'didn't I tell you so? But after the election was over-whet he was elected, despite everything then Tilden should have been decided and quit his quandary. It is slnguiai 9 that a man so industrious should have aostponed so much. He was exposed however, to many kind of counsels, and those counselors of the most honest in. tentions blundered the worst. Thai Electoral Commission bill was support. ed by the highest talentin the party and by Mr. Tilden's friend, Hewitt. It was not supposable that the Supreme Court of the United States would take such a party division. I think Mr. Tilden ought to have assumed command of the party, and he would have been inau gurated. But because he erred and put action off, the Republicans must not be allowed to forget that he was cheated." J. R. Walker, D.
