A Corrnet Statemet of the Ketmrt Of the Arbltratars In the Gas Company Asseemsent Natter. The report of the decision of the arbitrators is the matter of the assessment of the Gas Oom. pany, made by a contemporary, ts so terribly inso ouratethat we a'e induced to publish it again as follows: NEW ORLEANS, August 29, 1877. Hon. . J . Renostorf Administrator of Asess-. ments, and James Jackson, Esq., President New Orleans Gas Works: After very careful and patient investigation of the subject at issue between you relative to the assessment of real estate and capital involved, we came to the concluseion that reductions should be made as follows, vie: On square No. 401, asseessed at 8900,000, re duotion, $75,000. On square No. 407, assessed at $800,000, re duction, 8100,000. On square No. 872, assessed at $100,000, re duotion, $20,000. On ofi e and building occupied, easessed at $70 000, reduction, $10,000. This leaves all the rest of the real Iestate as agreed upon between you, ad whole did not some unmer our consideration. Regarding capital, we thit* $1,800,000 a fair estimate. We cannot without elaborate and tedious ex planations clearly convey reasons that have in duced us to arrive at our concluelons, but would briely state among them are our estimate of the valuable franchises possessed by the Gas Com nay on the one side and on the other the vast a llg off in the consumption of ga consequent on decreased prosperity of the community, the deterioration of value in much of their property, end greatly reduced cost of materials largely used by them in construction, etc. We cannot close without stating that to the courtesy of the officers of the (as Oomprany, and valuable aid extended to us by Mr. W. A. Freret, our labors have been greatly lightened. Yours, very respecetfully, LIONEL O. LEVY. ABOHIBALD MITOHELL. Thus, it will be seen that whilst the arbitrators have reduced the assessments on such real estate of the company as was referred to them for val nation, they have maintained the estimate puton the capital of the company by the Board of As sessors. It will be remembered that the com. pany asked for a reduction on their capital to $1,000,000. In the aggregate the Gas Company's property is assessed at something over $200,000 more than it was last year. TEE FRANKLIN TEMPERANOE HALL Assoolation, whose building Is .stuated at the corner of Spain and Rampart streets, having ap plied for a reduction of their assesement from $8000 to $5000, on the ground that the building was partly used as a Sunday school, the matter was referred to arbitrators. They belang unable to agree, called in an umpire, who decided the property to be worth 87000. Actual calculations made at the Olty Hail shows, It is said, that in al.ouses where arbitra tlon was resorted to the assessments of the board have been reduced, ON THE AVEBAGE, only six or seven per cent. The Mayor has not yet signed the navigation bridge ordinance. It was currently reported at the Oity Hall that Administrator MoCaffrey had applied for a writ of injunction against the Mayor enjoining him from signing the ordinance, and that the injunction was actually in the hands of a deputy sheriff. Up to the time we went to press, it had not, however, been served on his honor. There are many ru m·or afloat regarding this injunction, which, it is said, will provoke lively times in Oity Hall circles if it is Issued. APTER THE BROERSe. The several brokers who offered bide for the 8.00,000 premium bonds, advertised for by the city a few days ago, are short over 8100,000. The reason being, it is believed, that they cannot tover all their bids, owing to a rise in the market. It Is smid that mayhape they thought that the city would only take one-half or one.quarter of the sum, and hence they played bold and now that they find that the bonds have gone up on the STRENOTH OF THEtR VENTUmL, they are hiding their heads. If it turns out that they don't come up to the soratoh fhirly, like men, hereafter all bide of this kind may have to be so -ompanied by a deposit of ready oash as a pledge of their earnestness. Errieh's book store. The Log Male. The order to sell the Caloasieu loge will proba bly be executed on the 25th, when the marshal will put them up in lots according to the inven tory. It is not by any means certain, however, that the sale will be a success, for intimations have been thrown out that the swampy airs of Lake Charles are not particularly healthytfor pur chasers, and shot guns sometimes go off of their own accord. Whether this means something or not we can't say, but it may deter many who would otherwise bid from attending. Marshal Wharton does not think this talk is really in earnest, and he is sat isfied the sale will go on. It Is generally thought the logs will not bring more than 45 or 50 cents, although they were appraised at $2. Everybody goes to Eyrich'Hs Attempted uilelde.

Yesterday, at the invitation of its genial pro prietor, we were passed over the floors of the rice mill of Mr. Columbus H. Allen, situated or Tohoupitoulas street, near Lafayette street. It was established in 1873, and is called the Brook Mill after a valued friend, and not, as might be thought, in token of a latent love of purling waters and of rural associations. Among the young men who came in at the folding of the vulture's wing over the Mouth. Mr. Allen's name is e'onspieuous. He is a native Louisianian and a soldier. On the memorable 14th of 8eptember he was on duty as Captain of the Allen Guards, and on the 9th of January in command as Col onel of the First Jefferson Battalion: and throughout the initial troubles of our era he has taken an active part in the performance of public duty. By dint of skill, industry and energy, and more than these-success, Mr. Allen Will com mand prominence. The breaking up of the flow of commercial and industrial disasters has set in, and the prospect has dawned of a bright future, of which he is a part. The na tional eagle seems to have taken full possession of his eyrie; everywhere are indications that the old bird means to run the country straight forward in the interests of prosperity and pro gress, as well as patriotism and peace-this en passant. The Brook Mill is an institution; about 2.o barrels of clean rice are the daily product of the mill-the yield of about 5se sacks, received, In hull. A beautiful engine, clean and cylindered to a charm, is, perhaps,. the most attractive of the specific objects in view. The tumult of the many driving processes, all simultaneously in progress: the vast variety of machinery, all pushing as if in a desperate race with time; the rushing tide of rice, poured through conveyors and elevators from floorto floor, and back again to new and more advanced receivers, we founa an entertainment vastly pleasant and instruct ive: and without much cost of time or space we may take our readers through. The sacks are emptied into the hopper, which is an improvement of Mr. Allen. It cleans the hull or beard by a rapid circular movement of cylindrical wings located in its centre, and does the first staging to the rough. Thonce by an elevator it is whipped to the third floor and passed into the rough rice screen. Here the agitation is intense-straws and unclean refuse are cast out. The smaller grains of the staple pass on unhulled, while the rest is taken up by a conveyor and carried to a machine called the stone. Its process breaks away the fibre of the hull, and another elevator then carries it to an upper floor for fanning. It comes back to the shakers, of which there are two, the name de noting their purpose; and thence is distributed among the pounders, twelve in number. These initiate the bran formation; afterward a con veyor carries grain and bran, all mixed, to the bran box; thence up again by an elevator to the bran screen, At this stage the clean rice is cast on the floor for cooling, while the bran goes down through acylinder and is sacked. Again -the clean rice is taken up and goes to the brush, which polishes the grain; thence to the clean rice screens of which there are Nos. 1 and 2, dif ferent in size. It is here barreled, These rapid and tumultuous processes, from hopper to barrel, occupy twenty-four hours; and as Mr. Allen is always on time and keeps abreast of the most urgent haste of planter or merchant, no one has long to await his crop in choice new barrels, ready for any market, near or remote. We desire only to give our readers a general idea of the measures and means incident to rice cleaning, and some impression of an es tablishment of the first order. conducted, under the strictest business regulations.with efficiency and success; aliunde, the extreme accuracy of these descriptions is not insisted upon. The intelligent reader, whether of inventive acumen or not, will hardly doubt that the genius of invention will speedily work out other and improved forms in the mill problem; that Im provement in machinery which shall reduce the number of stages in the march to finality, so that elevators and conveyors may be less in request, and the processes culminate under simpler and even more rapid, forms is a mat ter only of time: while it may be incontinently assumed that the young, capaple and energetic proprietor of the Brook Mill will keep in the van of progress. Tl'he rice industry is rapidly advancing from year to year in Louisiana. and the quality of the staple gradually improves. The grain, now, for richness and fullness is unsurpassed by any in the world; while fields of finer perfection await its future. Whatever other industrial forms capital may take when it comes to flow in perennial tides to Southern centres, as it will, the enlarged and perfected culture of this favorite staple wilt find attention. Let only the ,ide of circumstance flow on. r- Eyrich's ir Ask for Hoaplna and you will get the best soap.

Food for the mind at Eyrich's. Oareful business men prefer, as a rule, to deal directly with producers whenever it is practioa ble, and to this feeling we can' attribute the fact that those of our merchants who are aware that T. Fitzwilliam & Co.. 76 Camp street, are the only stationers in New Orleans possessing a lithographic establishment see the advantage of giving this firm their orders for all kinds of lithographed work in preference to giving thenm to others who are obliged to have the work done by some one else thereby entailing a double profit. No house in the South, and very few in the United States, combine printing office, blank book factory and lithographic oflfce in connection with a very large stock of stationery, and the numerous customers of this house, among whom are numbered our Cotton Ex change, the offices of the city government, most of our steamboats and m .ny of the leading commission and wholesale houses of New Or leans, can bear testimony to the advantage of doing business with a firm whose thorough knowledge of their business, and superior fa cilities for conducting it, guarantee satisfaction to all who favor them with their orders.
