Brown Presents a sVlry Fnvorable Report Thereon. [ivoeal to the Demoorat.l OCIriN.l riO', Aug. 12.--A WashilngtAon spe eial to the, tazrc says that Capt. Brown, of the Uninte SNtates Engineer Corps, in charge of the inspe.ction'of Eads' jntties at the mouth of the Mississippi river, has just sent to the War Depairtlent a very favorable report. The report states that Eduls' plan is a substantial suceets. During the past four monthle there has been more work done than at,.ay provi ottn lpe:iod. One nmrlltli rix hundred thou, sand cubic& fett of mattra't s has Iwenl placed in position at the jettihw at the h Mel of South fuss, with tabout Iaxty thousand otlbhi, yards of stone. The' ettloment, which had eein prlie vlouly notitced at the end of the easl, jetty, hals stopped. and there has boon nio nIItlt'i'telh' settlement sillnc March last. In four imlloths 150,0(00) yaills of Mdlilhnlnt have been sIcoured from betwoeen the jettIes and carried out to sea. All that hnp.des the passage now of a ship drawing twenty feet tlrouigh the entire longth of the jottles Is at little strIp of 140 foot In longth. Through the rest of tile chulnol thorn is a depth of twenty feet. Capt. Brown finds by a comparison of the' Gulf survey beyond the end of the jetties that as the result of jetty currents there has b~tn t slight average increaso of depth, while the enty foot and thirty feet curves hav e re ad. From this hcircumstance the conelu ton is drawn that the bar has not reformod in advance of the Jottles. Capt. Eads, who is here, is confident that on the basis of this roport lie will soon retwolve his noumind payment of $500,000.

Editor Deamocrat-We have the inest cro1ws that a crow ever flow over. There is eonsid erable talk of caterpillars, and some of our f Qlanters are preparing to give the vermin .bees of arsenic, others Paris green. Some bay there Is no use to try to destroy the ill sect; but, as a matter of course, Got favors the vigilant. The co·tn crop Is made and is very fine; fodder pulling and working the public roads are the order of the (lay in this parish. The public health is very good at this time, and our physicians will have to do something else than dose out calomel. Now would be a good time for them togetgoxt paying schools in these hereabouts, as schoolmasters are scarce. We have been so in the habit of abusing the Radiculs, that our friends, for the want of these to abuse at this time. and considering t~m as vermin of the past, pitch into Gov. bNholls and the Legislature on general prin ciples. I pitied the poor devils of the legisla ture and tried to defend them, but soon learned that it was too big a task for a man of my calibre, and retired from the field. Some time ago the Hon. H. D. Ogden, chair man of the committee on Investigation of the department of education, instructed the Hon. Thos. A. Spires, president, and P. H. Toler, secretary of the hoard of public education of Riahl*nd parish, to make an examination of the pooks and records of the former school boava ot Richland, and report at the earliest amo.a ns practicable. In obedience to said lnastruoons Messrs. Spires and Toler be gan mle two weeks ago to investigate school matters. The minutes of the board show that on the 19th of August, 1871, J. E. Lewis, C. R. Balfour, W. Day Oli ver, J. A. Legette, Wmin. T. Oliver and Thomas Jones took the oath of office as membars of the school board for this parish, at* pro ceeded to organize the board by electii Ir win E. Lewis, president, and Wm. T. Oliver, secretary and treasurer. There was some preliminary business done when the board adjourned. At the regular meeting of the .school directors of the parish of Richland, held in the town of Rayville, on Monday. Octobor 2, 1871, there are the following o4n tries : The (lainm of W. A. Heott, tocihtr in distrlci No. 2, for $5'2 .)0, wtas pirsetntod, allowed arwl paid. Also, that of J. Wilson, bwcher in D)lstrice No, 3, for $34 15, was pr4sIontA.l, allow(ed an paid. Also, that of J.

Yet hoe has not a single voucthor for one red pent of said sum. In one plaeu there is a charge of $42; in an bther of $42 10 for bringing shclol.toney from New Orleans here. Thlior is an item of $74o to cy expenses- of delegates to eonvention. Thre is no safe business mnan, who, if h1 was in New Orleans with monev and coming dl rect here, but would send it by express. To give him credit for everything that he claims' lhe states he falls behindhand $1264 ,10. On tie 11th of October. 1871, J.1. .1. Osthsn took the oath of ollice as a sChoo(l dlr(.ctor.

Parties who arrived in the city last evening on the Mobile Railroad Sunday excursion train re, port that they saw in Lake Borgne what seemed to be a schooner OR SHIP ON VIRE out some three or four miles further and nearly in a line with the point where the st.amor Lizz e burned. The passengers on the train first noticed the burned veseet when crossing the bridge at Bav lit. Louis, and from that pint to Chef ientrou the flames were plainly to be-'een when ther was no timber to hide them from view. It being late at night it was not noesible, no course, to learn any partiunlars, though it can b. safely said that there were NO CASUALTIES BY l)iROWNINi, as the lake was neatly calm, only a light broeze blowing duling the day and evening. ------aD-O4,.-- - FRF NC", POLITICS,. A political map of lFrance was iisued thel other day, sihowing the streicngth of the partlee iu the several dLepiartmenrlts. It told so strangeu a story for the diiscomllturl of the Ionarch ists that the authorities had it seized at the kiosques, whlere it was Offlred for sale. The arrondissetlents were colh)ed acc((ord'( g to the votes which they gave at the last general election. The Lounon Timnc says: "Red is used to mark the place which returlned, any of the .I3H3 deputies who voted a want of confidence in the present ministry, while green indicates the area of favor for the (abil noet, and white the few spots that are neutral. The effect is very remarkable. Nearly the whole eastern half of the country, from the Pas de Calais to the Pyrenees Orientales, is colored red. Only thirty anti-lRepublican constituencies, it is said, are to the east of the line, and they are mostly in four or live groups; while toward the south nid the centre ten' whole departments have not returned a single royalist or imperialist. Th< southwest, on the other hand, is in the ihand of the monarchical patties, although ever that ancient fastness of legitimacy is broker up by many centres of republicanism. The political lesson of the map may be concisely summed up in the fact that the Repullicanm are exclusive masters of twenty-three d(epart monts, while their opponents have not the sole I)ossession of even one. Palats poyal. Among the many changes to take place soon a on the grand boulevard none will be more strik ing and more indicative of the good time to com-e than the swaying to th- breeze the banners of the grand "Palaim Royal." Our enterprising friend Levy, who has for so many years been the popc lar proprietor of the dollar store, No. 137 Oans street, seems to have had his faith shaken in re publican institutions and ideas, and is deter mined, with one fell swoop, to obliterate the name of dollar store forever. He is making prep arations for the opening of this elegant and gor I geone estabhiehment, and nothing will be'sparet I in making it the most attractive place in th, Southern country. Levy's dollar store is known throughout the whole South, and as it has been e known for its promptness in filling orders am e the polite attentionof the clerks, and the place te get everything, so will the Palais Royal gro: into popular favor, for we will see in the large if and gilded sigre that are to adorn the buildinl evidences of a new era, a prosperity which w, have longed for but never expected until th e present time. e Buy your buggies and carriages from L.

This is what we think of small boys, and we do not care who knows it, At the same time we hava a nervous horror of dreadful things, and we admit that we shuddered on Saturday evening, even to our bosom'scorts and in the marrow of our bones, at the sight we Saw. The Mobile freight train had started and was utder good headway, and a baker's dozen ol small boys, blrck and white, were romping in a way that made us dizzy on the roofs of the freight cars, and running races, with a temerity that suggested thoughts of anlucky falls and mashed bones, over the empty platform cars. of which there were about seven or eight. The nonsensical and abmtinabe little wretches werre playing tag or some other abaurd game, ju nlpinu llt the "Wilbeholmus Caprico'ius" from one cal to the ether with astonishing agility, and when they had got to the end of the string of platform cars would jump to the ground as if the oar was not in motion, climb up again by the irons and preeipitonu laddere of the freight care and begin over their horrible rompe and dreadful race, the ponderous engine all the time snorting uselese sounds of warning and the speed of the heavily rolhog train increasing a every palpitating moment. We have seen the prof seional acrobats, reale and female, plal their airy pranks in the circus, and could not fer hear succumbing to a touch of heman nature b] shuddering when the desperate actors took theil flywg leaps in mid-air, but these were working for their daily bread, it wae their profession, and as an Americar citizen we object to censuring anything that it buIiines, but email boys running races over plat form cars have nothing to do with bnus.ess; ii fact, they have no basiness to do it, and it ough to be the business of the company to see tha they should not be permitted to do it. We an derstand that the same thing goes on daily alei on the Jackson railroad. We enter oar protest We claim of the supervisors that they shouhe have the prac ice stopped immediately.

Of late our people have found the way to the 6 ferries, and every afternoon "dime excursionists" are to be met with in numbers on board the steamers paying between the left bank and Al glers and Gretna, in search of a breath of cool 1I air. It Is., however, surprising that the number of eacursionists is not greater, for it is very slt dom that there is not at least a light breeze on the river, and at no time is it so warm on a ferry. 18 boat as in the walled thoroughiares of the city. We have endeavcred, several times, to explain why people will swelter for half an hour or more in a street car to reach some suburban resort, there to swelter again for an hour of' m6re, in stead of seeking the bosom of the Miseltsippi for refreshment. It cannot be that the fare of the 5 ferry is objectionable fr it is IirreT PEr OLENT CO5APtt THAN that of the lake or Carroilton cars, and for the modicum of ten cents a person can ride all day on any of the ferries if he choose. Perhaps the e delinquenoy is due to the fact that our people have to be shown the way to the ferry landlngs; >f and yet they And the way very readily to all new e resorts without being driven to them. 'As to the d ferries being easy of access, that is established. The street cars land passengers within fifty yards k of the Esplanade, St. Ann or Jackson street fer d ries, and the distance to be walked to the Canal f stzeet landing ib only about 100'yarde longer. d Being unable to satisfy ourselves on this point we can only report that it is singular that people e prefer a 5TIYLI Ni lIlDE in the street care to a c'iol and roomy ferry-boat. We have tmado the experiment, and besides en of j )ying ourselves have learned a few things eon oa ruing ferries which may ho read with intcrest. Our experience being chietly derived from the a Unual street ferry, we shall take it as a criterion y for our relation, the details being obtained in d conversati,o with Mr. Tios. Pickles, one of the lessees, and his collector. Mr. itewart. It is. or rather it used to be, the almost unol e versal impression that it took a ferry fromn fifteen ae towenty minutes to oross the river. unok . is not g the case, however, for they usually make r IItIIEE IUOGND TRIPS witlhn an hour, or six trips from shore to shore. The day boat begins to ran about 5 o'clock in the R morning, and does not stop until eight in the e evening. when the night ferry takes its place. This makes ninety trips a day for the day boat. The night boat runs at the same Wate until 9 'i o'clock, and thence every half hour suail mid is night, when it lies up subject to call from some re belated traveler. From 9' o'clock at night tmil 5 in the morning, however, the fare is ten cents each way. Of course, says Mr. Pickles, this night running, s especially after midnight, is done at heavy ex pense and is a dead loss to the lessees in one s" ense, but, besides acootnmodating and ir EXcoUAoIiO vIstroas 'e to Algiers and Gretna, it encourages people to is live on t i right bank, and the profits of the fer. .n ries incroase in proportion to the increase of is population. Singular that the street car eom- t- panies don't think as wisely as our ferrymen, in who say they unoderstand their business, and that it their prosperity depends in greater par; upon at the amoant of accommodations they af i. ford to their patrons. That is why io they arc so careful in obtaining frequent tests of t. the boilers of their boats (which is done under a Id pressure of two hundred pounds of steam) and !y in keeping them scraped and clean. There are a at present only two nihei steamers running, one Id at Canal street and the other at Jackson street, which are deemed sufficient to ment the demands of travel. They necessarily require an ix ra set of men, consisting of a pilot, an engineer, a .o0l lector and firemen. n- Yet this s not all the accommodation which y, these ferries afford. Ron by conscientious and is sensible men, they will frequently watt several mmnutes for A LABORER Ott IECHANIC, in order to enable him to reach his workshop in 5s time and save him from a quarter to half a day, ie which he might lose by getting there a few minutes after the time prescribed by time strictly observed rules of the shop. 1i Then, again, teachers and school children of going to and returning from school are charged o only half fare. Very recently a pleasant occur rence happened in this connection. A passenger, 7. having claimed the privilege of paying only five cents for the round trip, was asked on what grounds. He answered that he was going to o. school. His appearance indicating that his story was improbable, be was asked his age. Twenty four, he said, and then explained that he had al been working all his life in Algiers until he had p- saved enough money to en. ble him to tie GET SOME BCHOOLING, as and had selected a school in New Orleans for the purpose. Every day now. his nickel pays for his round trip, like any other schoolboy. It is this 5* nickel business, although apparenly very in ag significant, which gives the collector of the be suanl street boat the pleasant opportunity ,of at walking up and down the staircase leading to the re- upper deck, ninety times a day, not to speak of in- the other trips wh ch he may have to make during the day to attend to the carts and wagons beon ferried oter, and loo. after thbel eaer on the boat; and when ngh om e de as o Senerlly fest likte going to a dsanlng party. Mr. o Sewart tells many quatt stories of the stratelgy and tactich of certats olasses of passengers, $ avoid the payment een of that insiualnab Is so frequent that there is not a roseee on the boat which has not to be looked intoeach trip, sI kt some paseenger has esconsed blimseIf n oen of them under some pretext, to avoid meeting the collector. The greatest dodgers however, belong to the newly enfranobleed lcses. Th& darkies walk boldly on board, and when the oel leotor calls fIr his reona, they "aue vesy sorry boes, but de man I'e been working for didnt give me no money dis week; when 1 come over again I pay you, shush." The i excuse is well known by experience, and he is re quiredl to deposit his eotton hook or hie poeket knife, II he have one, M. seelrtty for the nalael, otherwise he is carried bhnk on the return trip to Shpela of deparlmsre It not alret at o ours, however In the letter asoe that fter et slderable fumbnling abopt his clothes, he inds the required nickel; and yet sometimes, derpite the most careful watching, ae manages to give the collector "Tu f soip," and lands safely at the point of destination glory ing, doubtless, at the onte way in which he has "done dat white man." The colored woman will pay for herself, but the child is invariably under six yers of age, and, on a pilun, she will turn all her pockete wrong siede out to convince the' ao llector that, at all events, she ".lu't got sO udder peiayune."
