TIHE ARMY
I have never Ibon so thoroughly convinced
as I am now that the army should ho abol
Ished, or at least redu. ed to the number of
men needed to defend the frontier and protect
the public property. When it becomes neces
sary for the general government to interpose
t*o preserve the peace, maintain the laws and
protect property in the several States, there
will be al end of the principle or right of lwoal
.self-government. The States may colntinu
for a time to exercise bysufferanee that right,
but it will be by sufferancee only. The time of
the utter destruction of the right will depend
upon the caprice or convenience of the central
ypower at Washington. The surest safeguard
of the public peace, the safest power to aid the
•,ývil authority in time of public discontent,
and, at the same time, to preserve and pro
tect the rights of the States and the lilbrties
of the people, is a well organized mnilitia. It
is a scandalous shame that the (Governor of
any State of the American Union should have
found it necessary to call upon the Federal
government to repress disorders within its
borders. Such a necessity is a certain indica
tion of the de ay of civic virtue among the
people of the commonwealth, or of the dis
graceful imbecility of its administration.
I realize as fully as any one the importance
of presert ing civil order and repressing law
less violence; but I confess that when the
arm of the President was invoked by gover
nors of soverign States to maintain their
authority, and the regular army was called
upon to lire upon and shoot down American 1
citizens, the Federal Government assumed, to 1
my imagination at least, much of the grim I
and forbidding aspect of despotism, and I
could not repress a sentiment of contempt for
the degenerate States too feeble and spiritless 1
to maintain their own laws. I
It is to be hoped that the American people z
have enough love of liberty remaining to 1

TILD )EN'H FOLLY.
1'The riots ought lint to have asIthished the
1)EMO('RAT. During the contest between tlis
Nicholls and Packard governments the I )iEMo
'RAT appealed to the people of Louisiana and
to their representatives to make no conces
sions to and compromises with the Packard
conspirators. It declared that the people of
Louisiana would resist the Institution of tre
Packard goverunmnt with arms; that thou
sands of good and true men in adjae nt
States would rally to their aid, and that there
was widespread suffering and discontent
throughout the North, tengendered by the un
constitutional and wicked policies of the
Federal government which would provoke
riots and revolution among the workinp
pteople of that section, the moment the first
gun wias fired in New Orleans, and that our
battle would be fought in Washington, New
York, Baltimore, Chicago and other Northern
cities, as well as in those of the South.
Perhalps the wisdom of the President In re
storing tih State governmcnts of Louisiana
and South ('artolina, and in withdrawing the
t roops front New Orleans and Columbia, has
found its highest exrmplillcathon in the peacet
that has reigned in the South, while revolu
tion red-handed, with knife and torch, swept
through the country.
Poor Tilden ! poor Hewitt! Had those chosen
leaders of a mistaken people had the courage
to support their high positions, or the patriot
ism to ignore the influences of gold and bonds,
it is now evident that they might have
becomethe saviors of the Republic. The out
breaks were but another phase of the people's
revolt against the methods of Grantism.
The first phase of that revolt was the election
of Tilden; and if Tilden had had courage and
manhood equal to his high duties, he would
have' had but to open his lips and mighty
armies would have gathered at his back to
support the constitution and the Preident the

t of the world-renowned iteturning Board ex-ohief,
it has been whispered about in Onetom-House
circles that another and
A MOREi VORMIIAOlt,CA RAID
was to be made upon Collector King by Ander
" son, Oantt and Wells,. They are not, it seems,
satisfied with the patronage they have had in
the way of appointments, and hating, without
doubt, made promises to the entire Packard
Ntate-lonse lay-out, they are now being pushed
f by that crowd, some of whom threaten to
"squeal" on the returners unless they are pro
vided with clerkships, eto.
This manner of bul!doring has had its effect
upon the returners, and fearing doubtless lest
some of their innermost secrets should
nlo MiIAn luelIll,
they have determined to keep them dark by raid.
Ing the Colleotor for places for their pets. They
seem to think that the Oeutom-flouse actually
Il belungs to them, and that as they helped
to make the President they should have the
t Onetomllouse teat tolpull at'until all the seooha
rine has been extracted.
They are of the opinion, however, that Deputy
C Colloetor Champlin stands in their way and that
hI e may prevent their reorganieation of the Oneu
tom-Housee, and therefore have, a la Kellogg,
turned their batteries upon him, hoping by so
r ouring his removal to accomplish their wishes.
He, it seems, objects to having made an immq.
diate and sweeping removel of experienced
I clerks lest the very compliloated system required
to keep the government business straight should
become disarranged, and by the errors of
TrtC RICI;EN IANDL
the business should get mixed.
The raiders do not seem to care for this, how.
I. ever, and all they want now is his head, and they
propose to take it without further preliminaries.
The plan is now to have Anderson, Gantt &
Co. demand from the Collector Mr. Obamplin's
- rsignation, and hat secured, Anderson is to
compel the Collecr tor give the position vacated
to*ham (Anderson), who will occupy it, and with
out the slightest knowledge of Oustom.House
Itneiness will manage things to suit himself, and
he will then control the Collector
Anderson's fllends say he has a double purpose
in this, the first being to oust Obamplin. and
I then eventually make himself the Collector by
ousting Judge King. The nomination for Col.
lector, they say, may not
lit InitNT TO THliS SRENATE
until during the last days of the extra session,
and should King be rejected, Anderson, having
Ssecured Ohamplin's removal and his own instal
m went, would be the ad ifderlr, Collector, and
r could then ot heads and make appointments
as fast as he chose.
They fear, though, that President Bsyes might
have something to say on the subject, and don't
know aust howtoo go at it. They know that the
Prmeldet has provided for eob of the Rleturn
f ins Board exoept Osanave, and sle not, therefore,
,t longer under obligations to them, and. know, as
their friends say, that the President oares nothing
for them or their threats, a his title is beyond
their reach, and, consequently, think that if they
el can secure the entire Cus:om-House without
making a noiee that
WILL, rIft HEARD IN WAMNIMINTON
they will just go In and gobble the whole business.
Ihe programme was arranged for Anderson to
arrive here on Haturday or yesterday and quietly
arrange the details of the ourj d'etat before the
Collector was aware of it, and then make Mr.
hObamplin step down and out before he knew it.
in this, however, they have counted without
r their hoat, as the programme from first to last
has been "given away," so to speak, by one of
their coflidantles, who seems to think that the
ovynxllxxten MAY surr-En
and has gone galavanting about the Custom.
House corridors until it has officially reacheobd the
ears of the special agentlof the Treasury Depart
1 me.t, who may lnv.otigate the entire matter
should the programme be carried out. Itumorhbs
it that it first came to his ears by a letter from the
Treasury Department, wherein a hint was given
n that should Ohamplhn's resignation be demanded
or asked, that fact should at once be telegraphed
to the Secretary.
Just how this raid will pan out is not known,
I but there are scores of the "oute" who earnestly
t wish for ite success, and are doing all they can
to help to make it successful. It the same con
nection it is stated that some of those who are
making the loudest howl have already secured as
much patronage as they are entitled to, and fur
ther that an one nstarnce a direct violation of
teeoretary 8herman's order is reported in that
more than
ONEL OF A FAMILY
are employed in the same bureau.
Per contra, it is known that the President's or
der forbidding Federal employee from occunpying
politioal positions is even now ignored by the Col
lector, who has in his employ several who holl
State oices. The same might be said of two
other offiose-not connected with customs in
the Custom-House building, one of which is held
by a State Senator and another by a member of
the House of Representatives. Then again, it
is said that Mr. Desmarais, a member of the
House of H.present.atves, is now occnpyirg a
position under the Collector, all of which has, of
c ,nrae, been brought to the attention of the
special agent of the treasury, who, if the whole
subjec. matter is investigated, will have
SOMETBHIO FOR A DE)TAILED BEPORT
to forward to Washington.
A strange feature in connection with the so
called raid is the old fight between Anderson and
(.nott and the tollec'or,which resulted in a victory
for the former, and it was supposed that the fight
had ended, but it seems that it is about to be
made anew. Another feature which "mixes" the
averageonseider is the fact that the final report
of the Custom-House Commission has
NOT YET DEEN FORWAIRDED
to Washington, the rnAmbers of the commission
refusing point blank to say why the delay is oc
casioned.

A PRIOMIaI3 SO1ONCEt?.
The RIhetareal Testerday of Msasrs. Joel
bert and D'Aquln.
Messrs. Joubert and )'Aquin, two of our an.
Live artitl,r, already well known among our
music-loving people, the former as a violinist
and the other as a flutist, arrived In this oilty
some time ago. It will be remembered that
about eighteen months ago these two talented
and promising young gentlemen were given a
complimentary concert at the Opera House to
enable them to proseoute their studies.
For eighteen months Moeors. Joubert and
D'Agnin have been under the fostering oare of
the distinguished professors of the Oonservatoire
of Paris, and their presence In their native city
is due to a voaation which has been given them
to visit their families and friends. They shall
have returned to the field of their studies
by the Irth (f October nest. Meanwhile
their admirers propose to tend.r them another
concert, to take place at an enrly day. To that
effect yesterday Messrs. D'Aqulo and Joubert,
assisted by some of our best professional talent,
gave their first olhearsal, to which a select num
bar of dildrltte and representatives of the press
had been invited. The affsir passed off charm
ly, but we do not propose to destroy In
avnoe the plesure whch many are
In store by going Into details onocernlng the
rehearsal. iluliMe to say that our young
friends have reason to congratulate them
selves upon the improvement which sertous
study has accomplished in them,. After hearing
them yesterday we are not surprised to learn
that their competition for first honors at the re.
nowned Conservatoire of Paris is almost assured.
We of New Orleans, who have so frequently
prided ourselves upon the produotion of fine
Jonu9lals, will hail the event with toh atmost
satldfacotln.
I he als last Wigiet.
After night fall last evening it becamtne alarm.
lngly evident that there was something the mat
ter withe gas supply. Street lamps burned so
low the flame could be scaroely seen, and dark
ness prevailed all over the city. At first con
sumers imagined It was the fault of the meter,
and immediately that inasrument was deluged
with water, but without avail.
In the newspaper composition rooms the print.
ers were unable to work, and at one time it
looked as though candles would have to be
brought into requisition. On Inquiry at the gas
house it was learned that the canse of the trou.
ble was the breaking of one of the valves on Fri.
day. Workmen had been engaged in repairing it
all that night, Saturday and sil o4unda, and the
work was only aooomplished about 8 o'olock last
night.
A Dimeulty.
At halt-past 10 o'clock Paturday night a diffi
culty originated at No. 261 Customhouse stree-,
between two dusky dames, Maggie Powell and
Susan Deller, which terminated in the latter being
beaten about the head and body by a stool in the
hands of the former. The injured womap was
taken to the Charity Hospital where she received
medical attention. The aooued party made her
escape.
rahort Items.
Joe. Lewis Decoste allal Marohioo, were lodged
in the lHr bor ntation. charged by V. 0. Lopez
with having robbed him of 1500 on the Robert
E. Lee. Special Luby arrested the accused
Saturday evening.
At a quarter-past 1 o'clock yesterday, while a
negro man named Archie Foster waslighting with
his wife, at their residence on Terpsicbore street,
he dropped dead. Goronor Roche held an nlo
quest and returned a verdict of heart disease.
At 0 o'clock Sunday morning Mr. H. Shepherd
found the body of a little boy, aged 8 years, float
ing in the river at the head of Port street. It is
supposed to be the body of the child drowned
iaturday evening. Coronor notified.
BPhind the bars in the SBeond Precinct is
Joseph Zoelly, charged with having property in
hir porsession supposed to have been stolen.
Zoelly was pulled by Offloer Posy.
Robert Metz, a negro porter, was arrested at
N'. 29d Dryades street, by virtue of a warrant,
and io t!ed in the Second Precinct, charged with
obrtaming property under false pretenses, by Dan
8hay.
For the larceny of two revolvers Charnes Smith
was locked up in the Eighth Station.
Aleck. Williams was looked up in the Seventh
lub-station, charged with larceny of potatoes and
peaches.
Wm. Patterson and Samuel Carter were arrest.
ed and locked up in the Sixth Station, charged by
Walter Barret with highway robbery and assault
and battery with intent to kill.
Win. Sacks is again in trouble for the hundredth
time; he has been arrested for having stolen pro
orrty in his possesei ,n. This time he was lodged
in the Third Station for having two sets of sto.en
harness in his posseseion.
Palael Royal.
Among the many changes to take place soon
on the grand boulevard cone will be more strik
ing and more indicative of the good time to come
than the swaying to the breeze the banners of the
grand "Palais Royal." Our enterprising friend
Levy, who haa for so manv years been the popu
lar proprietor of the dollar store, No. 137 Canal
street, seems to have had his faith shaken in re
publican institutions and ideas, and is deter
mined, with cne fell swoop, to obliterate the
name of dollar store forever. He is making prep
arations for the opening of this elegant and gor
geous establishment, and nothing will be spared
in making it the most attractive place in the
Southern country. Levy's dollar store is known
throughout the whole South, and as it has been
known for its promptness in filling orders and
the polite attention of the clerks, and the place to
get everything, so will the Palais Royal grow
into popular favor, for we will see in the large
and gilded signs that are to adorn the building
evidences of a new era, a prosperity which we
have longed for but never expected until the
present time,
