Through the kindness of W. I'. Fro
ret, Esq., the enterprising New Orleans
real estate agent, we are in possession
" of some valuable facts concerning a re
cent important movement in the inter
eats of Louisiana realty, which sheds I
bright ray of hope upon the hitherto
desolate outlook for the lands of that
long politically cursed State.
With the appointment of a Board of
Uommlseioners of Immigratlsn, and
their subsequent organization, it may be
said that the first step has been taken to
wards organizing some practical meas
ures having in view the introduction
Into this State of an industrious class of
white agriculturists, and the consequent
obcupation and utilization of the hun
dreds of thousands of acres of untilled
land that now are left to grow up in
brambles and sedge grass.
From the composition of the board
and the programme which they have
adopted we should judge that it will not
waste valuable time in mere speculation
or theories but will at once take hold
of the work before it in a way which
will be bound to bring forth positive
results Each member, from long rest.
dence In the State and an intimate
knowledge of the inducement it offers
to the immigrant, has doubtless long
ago fully made up his mind as to what
ought to be done and hQw best to do it;
and hence will be prepared to make a
prompt advance toward the desired end.
Louisiana may almost be called a
paradise for workingmen. Every pro
duct of that State can be grown here to
an equal, if not better advantage. Louis
lana minerals, although hardly any
effdrt has ever been made to develop
them, are nearly as abundant and equal
in wealth. Louisiana lands, without
exaggeration, ate the richest on the
The means of cheap transportatio
are almost limitless. Louisiana b
more miles of navigable streams t
any State in the Union, and a limate
salubrious and as delightful as that
Italy. Those terrible storms and fr
ing northers which are so destructive
property and life elsewhere are unknown
within her borders.
In the Northern sections of this
State, wheat, rye, oats, barley, and cot
ton, all produce heavy crops, while po
tatoes, both Irish andsweet, and every
description of garden vegetable can be
produced in enormous quanties and
with little labor, almost every month in
the year. Fruits, such as peaches,
pears, apples, plums, quinces and ber
ties, all thrive and produce most abun
dantly, and with the railroad facilities
which will came in time, that region of
the State will supply early fruits and
vegetables to the North and West in
such quantity and at such prices as will
bid defiance to competition.
In the southern part of the State are
those lands which so rapidly enrich the
sugar and rice planter and the orange
grower. Here extremes of either heat
or cold are unknown, and here life is
more enjoyable, possibly, than any
where else in the world.
It is not strange, then, that with such
inducements to offer to the immigrant
but little over one-twentieth of the area
available for agriculture is occupied?
Yet it is nevertheless too true. With
land enough to afford homes for many
millions of people, yet unoccupied, that
can be had at less than a tenth of its
instrinsic value, Louisiana sees the
neighboring States rapidly filling up
with a busy throng, and she is neg
lected and unnoticed.
The intelligent gentlemen who com
ose the Board of Commissioners of Im
migration are aware of all these things,
and now that they have begun opera
tions, we think that the people of the
State who have its best interests at
heart, can congratulate themselves that
henceforth the immigration will not
flow past her borders.

NEW YORK, July 11.-The World will
print to-morrow a private letter from
an Englishman of distinction, in the
course of which, referring to Gen.
Grant's departure, the writer says:
"There is a disagreeable undercurrent
left behind, of tales told out of school,
which I suppose will be sure to find
their way to the light of day sooner or
later' Perhaps, therefore, there is no
objection to my telling you that people
were not universally delighted here
with the ex-President's ways, and that
they were universally disgusted with the
ways of some of the people who made
social capital for themselves out of his
visit. In the first place, his silence at
most of the dinners he attended was
something appalling. On such occa
sions he literally never spoke one word
from soup to salad. At another dinner
he almost broke up the company by
objecting to allow t he Duke of Cam
bridge to take precedence of him. This,
doubtless, on the instigation of Pierre
"The worst of all the stories current,
bhoweoer, i~ that, in the Princess of
Wales' drawing-room at Marlborough
House, he pulled out an enormous cigar
and was going to light it, when some
body stepped up and prevented him.
However, he must not be too harshly
judged for this, for when Mr. Seward
was here, twenty years ago, and was
taken by Mr. Dallas in full dress, with
a ruffled shirt to a private con
cert at Buckingham Palace, he
insisted on infecting himself with
the fumes of a hugo Havana
just before he went in, spite of a civil
hint from Mr. Dallas that the Queen
had a strong personal repugnance to the
smell of tobacco. Moreover, it is well
known that poor dead Mr. Thornton,
the excellent housekeeper of Windsor
Castle, never got over the aboeminable
conduct of Victor Emmanuel who visit
ing the Castle when King of Sardinia,
insisted on smoking all night in bed;
and thereby, as Mr. Thornton used t,
say, poisoned the beautiful green satin
hangings of the room.
"The tricks and manners of the ex
President, however, probably would not
have annoyed the people so much had
it not been for the insufferable way in
which he was compelled to drag the
Minister and the whole Pierrepont con
nection about with him wherever he
went. He was incensed at this himself,
and openly expressed his satisfaction at
getting out of Cavendish Square. It is
a great pity that some kind friend had
not advised the General and Mrs. G(rant
to send that young hopeful, their boy
Jesse, to school before them in some
cool and healthy part of Switzrland..
On the evening of a dinner at Windsor,
this misguided lad, by way of -making
himself agreeable to the Queen, went up
to her Majesty and affably attempted to
open conversation with her Majeisty by
saying: 'Well, madam, your [ajesty, I
hope your newspapers don't write about
you in your country as ours do about
my father and mother?' I grieve to say
that the interesting conversation thus
begun never went any further."

The treatment of the Chancellor con
sists of a few glaspes of Rakotzy water
in the morning and a bath of fifteen
minutes' duration in the afternoon. It
is almost exclusively for the purpose of
taking this bath and water that he ever
goes out of his own door. He is never at
the kurs .al, and but seldom met taking
an eveding stroll with his wife and
daughter in the woods surrounding his
house. His malady consists in some
derangement of the nervous system,
combined with rheumatism. The affec
tion of the nervous system has its
natural cause in the overwork to which
he has subjected himself for so many
years; yet additional reasons for it are
sought in the renewed differences with

EnRERnour.-Sometimes the stranger
succeeds in seeing a young servant girl
in some rich Armenian house, or in
passing through lonely streets the wo
men are hindered by curiosity from re
tiring quickly enough from the grated
doors to prevent their faces being seen.
As far as I can judge, the Armenian
women are handsome, their almond
shaped eyes and long black eyelashes
being especially attractive. They have
a quantity of hair, but it is so stiff and
coarse as to resemble a horse's tail.
Among the men, also, many are to be
found extremely handsome, though
numbers of the lower classes have
coarse, ugly features. ' he moral
laws here are so strict as to be almost
incredible to any one coming from Con
stantinople. To-day I saw a young Ar
menian woman being escorted to the
citadel by three armed soldiers. The
trembling of her hands, which held her
white yashmak, enabled me to see her
face for a moment. I have rarely seen
such noble features-the embodied
dream of the poet. The pale counte
nance was suffused with tears, so I in
quired the cause of this unlawful pro
ceeding. She had been arrested for an
unlawful affection, and would suffer a
severe punishment. Soon afterwards I
saw her seducer-a Turk, who had only
one unarmed policeman to escort him.
The bastinado and some weeks of im
prisonment awaited him.

Probably few handsomer races exist,
and the women especially are physically
perfect. Their gentleness and kind
ness to the other sex (hardly the ruder
sex here) is proverbial, and in a climate
like this people do not, except in gossip,
throw stones at their neighbors. If, in
the warm summer evenings, the gar
den% which form so large a portion of
every town, are witness to a good deal
of love-making not always according to
strict rule, we may fairly say that each
nation and each partof it have their own
ideas on this interesting topic.

Lieut. Gov. L. A. Wiltz, of Louisiana,
now stopping at the New York Hotel, in
a conversation yesterday with a World
reporter, gave a very encouraging re
port of affairs in his own State. "Com
pared with other sections of the coun
try," he said, "the citizens of Louisiana
are doing very well in a business
way. There is less complaint made,
ani everybody is now taking
hold with the assurance that
the political impediments to the
success of the State have vanished. The
change which a few months have
wrought is most remarkable. In the
city of New Orleans and the country
parishes the same report of confidence
and renewed endeavor is made, and
while the residents of the State do not
expect an unusually prosperous epoch
just now, when all about them are suf
fering In a common business depression,
they see and feeool a change amounting
almost to a revolution.
" Financially the State is sound,
though in the matter of assessment and
taxation there are inequalities and
irregularities requiring adjustment. The
State as a whole will meet all its obliga
tions. During Republican domination
it had become a practice to heap the
burden of taxation upon the city of New
Orleans and make the weight very light
upon the planters, whom it was desira
ble to win over and hold for political
purposes. This was done by irregular
assessment. For, while the prop
erty in the city was forced to a
full valuation, and in some instances a
trifle over, in the parishes the valuations
were very low. This, it is hoped, will
soon be rectified, and efforts are now
making to collect data for an intelligent
handling of the subject. The Funding
Board of the State is now busily en
gaged in funding the entire State debt.
That whicn is bona fide and acknowl
edged by them amounts to nine
million and some odd hundred thou
sand dollars. But in addition there
is a million and over, about which
litigation is in progress, and ex
actly how it will be arranged it is
impossible at present to even surmise.
Supposing, however, that the State is
made responsible for the full sum, the
State debt will even then not aggregate
over $11,000,000, and this on a taxable
valuation at $170,000,000 will be easily
managed. This valuation, however, on
an equable assessment, will be raised to
$190,000,000 or $200.000,000, which will
enable the State without any trouble to
meet its interest whenever it falls due.
Property in Louisiana is advancing in
price, and the coming crops of cotton,
cane and corn present a very good ap
" The prosperity of the State has been
checked by the very fact of our pros
perity. When State bonds got up to 80
and 90 people who were holding them,
and who had purchased at 40 or there
abouts, began to think it a good time to
unload, and they sent their securities to
New Orleans for disposal, overran the
market, and the consequence was a
slight dropping off in the quotations;
but that will all wear off. T'he feature
was assisted in a measure by the drains
of ready cash from the banks on
the call of their back-country cor
respondents, to meet the demands
of the farmers for loans to use in their
crop work. But as long as this con
tinues speculation can safely be allowed
to wait. These circumstances will ex
plain how it comes that while the State
is really prospering the sales of her
bonds and obligations should decline.
When the rashing in of offerings from
timid holders'is over the rate will go up
and Louisiana will rank with any State
in the Union in her ability to fulfill all
and every one of her just debts."
On the question of the indictment of
the members of the old Returning
Board, Gov. Wiltz said he had left the
State on the dayr that public attention
was again turned to the topic by the
bringing in of the indictments. "It
was not," he said, " part of any special
plan that I am aware of. The judge of
the criminal branch of the Superior
Court called the attention of the Grand
Jury to the action of the board in his
regular charge to them. It was purely
a voluntary act on his part, without any
preconcerted arrangement with any of
the other leaders or political managers.
It is not any sudden move at all-atten
tion being first called to it in January, I
believe, and again at intervals since
that time by the presiding judges in
charges to the jury. It may prove to be
a matter of no moment, and then, if
pressed, it may bring out in legal form
some interesting facts touching the
manipulations of the returns after the
last election."
In concluding, the Governor said:
"The people of Louisiana are working
together harmoniously for the good of
the State. The Governor, in my opin
ion, will never be called upon to use
force to execute the laws."
Gov. Wiltz is Vice President of the
State National Bank-financial agent of
Louisiana-and his visit North is partly
on business connected with that insti
tution. Ten years of arduous political
service however, as Alderman, Mayor
and Lieutenant Governor during the
troublous times of that decade, entitle
him to the two months' rest he is now

Music" in the Rusllian Army.
There is only dne band to each divi
sion, and it affords music at intervals,
but the spirits of the men are cheered
on the way by their own songs, in which
they give vent to their enthusiasm with
a good will and melodious expression
whichl is quite enlivening. At the head
of each battalion are three drummers,
and in the van are generally a score or
more of good singers. First one strikes
up a solo, whose not- unpleasant air is
listened to in silence, and then the com
pany in unison and harmony take up
the chorus, the drummers joining in,
while the refrain swells along the whole

warlike and grand.
A Mwordflsh Sinks a Boat and its Crew.
[Kennebec Journal.]
Our correspondent at Rockport writes:
"The schooner Joe Carleton, of Rock
port, arrived here Thursday afternoon
from New York, with a cargo of.coal,
with her colors at half-mast, and re
ports that soon after she passed Owl's
Head she was becalmed and the crew
noticed what they supposed to be a
swordfish, and lowered the boat with
the captain and two men, and, after
considerable of a pull, they came up
with the fish and fastened to him. He
at once darted to the bottom, capsizing,
the boat and carrying it down after
him. It is supposed the two men were
entangled in the line, as they never
came to the surface; but Capt. Thur
ston, after being under water some time,
rose and found one of the oars from the
boat, with which he was able, although
thoroughly exhausted, to keep his head
above water until a Rockland vessel
came along, picked him up, and put
him on board his own vessel. The names
of the men drowned are Thayer and
Perry, both single men, belonging here.
When drowned they were within an
hour's sail of their homes."
Mr. John Horn, Jr., plunged into the

frayed by a subscription. The pre
