THE NEW ORLEANS DAILY DEMOCRAT.
OFFWIAL JOURNAL OF THE STATE OF LOUISIANA AND OF THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS. VOL. II---NO. 248. NEW ORLEANS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1877. PRICE, FIVE CENTS. DOMEnTIC NEWH. THIER~. 'be Nrew York Presn' Tribute to 1i Great nets and Patrlotim. Nfaw Yol~, Hpt. 4.--The morning papers, teferring to the death of M. Thlers, eulogize him as a statesman, orator, historian and jouttit, and express regret for his sudden dSxe at this crisis in the polities of France. t Herald says that M. Thiers was a statesman of the highest order, and his ca reer, whloh extended over perhaps the most important period of French history, formsn a large' portloi of his country's history. His d4(th at the present time is a sevlr blow to the republic. He possessed the confitence of a large portion of the French people, and in the present crisis his counsel, mroderation, wledom and patriotism was especially needed. The lrib.nr says : "The news of the death of Thiers, the great leader of the Republi c.ns in France, will cause sorprise and re g~tt the lovers of liberly overy where. It is not easy to see at once what effect of this sudden death will have on the poll ciel of France and the fortunes of the Republican party. It is smffflcent now to pauise awhile in rememhmbrance of this singu larly arduous and brilliant career, inspired by the loftiest patriotism, and crowned with the lasting gratitude of the peoiple of France." The Tiams says: "Thie death of M. Thelors at the present juncture is a misfortune of I ho first magnitude to France, if not civilization. It leaves the party of reaction free to use, with disastrous effect, the appeal that the nation must choose between MacMahon and lambetta. What dangers to the stability of the Institutions of Republican France and to the teace of Western Europe may be in volved In his sudden taking off, no one can foretell." The World says: "The sudden death of Louis Adolph Thiers. who had seen the MOth year of his ago. so full of life and will and flre was this wonderful old man. strikes an unques tionably serious blow at the Republic in France, Ho long as Thters lived. the experl ment of a coup d'etat against the Republic was surrounded with dimfficulties which will be apt now to disappear. His death simpli fies this in a dangerous manner. It is the snappling of a bridle on the neck of the revolu tion and the shattering of a shinld between the framer of the Republic and the passions of the reactionary party in France." THE .EW YORH FII.l. Thle Oriin, Developments anda anmnae of the Fire. NEW YoRK, Sept. 4.--Thrre were eighty buildings burned by the great fire yesterday, which started in Hale's piano factory. The fire resulted not only in a financial loss, but, it is feared, in a terrible sacrifice of life. Two persons are known to be dead, severac l have been seriously wounded and more are miss ing. Most of the buildings destroyed were cheap structures, many of them shanties. The loss is estimated at $2.0,000. Hale's manufactory, In which the fire origi natol, was a large brick building, eight stories high, having a front of two hiundired and fifty feet on Thirty-fifth street and about the same on Thirty-sixth street. What was known as the old part was nearest Tenth Avenue, and ran through the Harris block and had a front of twenty-five feeton Thirty-sixth street. Here was the main entrance and stair ease. This part of the factory was built in 11t9, and has been noted for the many misfor tnes attendling it. That year, 1869. a partl of the wall blew down and two or three men were killed; later a boiler exploded and mangled all engineer. iRecently, large additions were erectedl to the bttilding. There :was a staircase in the northeast corner, opening on Thirty-sixth street, but this was always kept c'losetl; there were also two escapcs on the Tenth Avenue side and two in thie recesses on I'lhirty-slxth street side, All through the building w'ere piles of partially finished pIinos. The estabh lishment wnw a perfec't titder shop. The fire originahol at 9 :;) a, m., and as far as can ire ascertained from nimany and con illting stories, arose from some material whichw -as bhiIng heated. rue dr 4the men looked suddenly around and he saw the( whole bench, on which the mrate vial stood, in a blazn. The man gave the alarm instantly and escapedt. Such was the inflammable nature of the materials that the ilames spread like a flash. A breeze was blowing briskly from the north,. and the win dows, which were open inl the building. helped the flames. Thre. had been employed nearly 200 nmen. Vip to the present time a number of cesunlties have h. In reported. Two persons were killedl and follr injured; and In addition to thlse severale ae rii cited missing. and It is feareu)l |heli' Ip.lies may be in the ruiins of the hur'nedI faetorvy.

NEW YORK, Sept. 4.--.The ruins of yestelr day's firo pres.nllt a. scene of inldescrihadle deeolation. To-day tlhe ruins are still smonl dering and thie coal yards blazing. The chilm neys and walls left stnrdling will be bllohwn iup to-morrow mornilng by the scappers antd miners' corps of the fire department, who were on thei ground this morning, lint owing to the intense heat they were i unable to doI much. For the same reason the ruins have not been disturbed, and the uncertnintly as to the number of those who lhaive perishe.d anrd been buried uniler the rmass of brick tw'enty crt deep is as great as last evening. Bult rme engine is kept (,on the groud.l. A tih,!e is no wateIr to supply the others, hydrants are used to cool the smoking ruins. The cooling process is necessarily slow, and it Is the judigment of thll chief of the depart ment that the search for bodies cannot he begun before to-morrow. To this lack of wair present delay is not only c(hargelable, but the greater part of I hedostrllction. lRe ga.rdlng the loss of life there are many con flicting surlrmise and accounts. There are those who fear that the removal of the mass o(f brick on the site of Hale's manufactory will reveal another Br)ooklyn Theatre sur prise. They base their judlgmlt on the fact that the varnishers in the fourth story were mostly llnmarrhie men, who )boarded widely apart. A man who keeps a large hboarding-house on Tenth Avenue. whlich was also burned, had a dozen or m1lore (If thle varnishers as Ilharders, but can't tell their names. He says that none of themr have reported to him, but he seenms to have no fears that they are beneath the ruins; in fact, like every on' else,. h tldoes lnot know Whetlher they are lead orl alive. On the other handl, it is stated on proof that four or five p.eished. The foreman of the estab lishment of Mr. Hale says Ih doelrs not think lout three persons lie in the ruins; one (of these is a maln nlalmed Lee, who raIl ill to save two friends, and was seen to th'row up hlls arms and fall backward into the flamne just as the walls catme down with a crash. It is now almost certain that not more than five pe'rsons have prislhed. Their names are as follows : John Kemnpenel. Edward Fish. Allert Lee. George torahr, and John Kentick. Those em ployes who had Itlen at work reported at tile branch factory in Thirty-fiftih street. All ex cept the five mentioned were found to have escaped, very few leing injured exc(pt the two who are in hospital. The returns at the pollce station go to show that the loss of lives is limited to four or five. In relation to any bodies that Ilight lhe in the ruins, the general opinion is expressed that cremation hlls ieen so complete that but little If any remains would be found. The fire marshal has been on the ground all day coll.eting all information possile in regard to the origin of tile fire anld loss's sustained, but at a lat' hour he had c'ollected no rellable information. It is estlltattl that tile total loss to insurance companies will not ex.eeed $2.8,00O. fDVEv POIRTA' FUNERAL. The Obsequelll Postponed Until Tooday.

THE CHINEifE QUERTION. The People of the Prcifie slope Want to Prevent Chinese Immigration. HAN FRANIr.co. Sept. 4.--At a final meet ing of the Committee of Hafety, held yester day afternoon, a leo ter was read from Gov. Irwin, who referred to the strong anti-Coolie feeling which had rendered a disturbance possible and might lead to a repetition. He sulggestfed the expediency of sedklng to remove the cnuse by taking further steps to obtaln such mndliflcatlon of the Biurlingame treaty as will prevent thie influx of Chinese; that the committee from the non-partisan character and high stand lug of the nmembrlers was of all others the organlzahtion that would have most weight with Congress; such action would tend to convince the laboring classes that earnest efforts were being made to free them from the burden of Chinese c, omlpetition, and woult do more than anything else to secure peace and order. An address was then read on behalf of the committee whiclhl calls the attention of the Eastern people and press to the subject of Chit 'so immigration, with a view of enlisting thiel' support in the suppression of Chinese Immigration.

THE RATTLE OF PELINAT. The TurkM Repulsed with Hcavy Lou. LONDON, .ept. 4.--A Daily Nowes special, date~l August 31, says: Osman Pasha's at tack on the Russian position at Pelisat and vicinity was one of the most hatl fought bat ties of the war. The Turks early in the fight captured a Russian redoubt one mile in front of P'olisat. In the course of one hour this re doubt was taken by the Turks, retaken by the Russians and taken again by the Turks. The Russian left wing was driven back on Pelisat, in front of which trenches had been dug and were lined with troops. The Turks advancedl as though determined to drive our left out of Pelisat and turn it. The Turks began to descend the hill in that direction, not with a rush, but leisurely and without firing; not in masses or lines, but Rcattered and diffused. They came down about half way in this manner, the Russian artillery tearing up groups all the time in the most savage manner. The Russian infantry fire, which had been very heavy for the last live ulinutes about Zeo lince, fow btwfan to roll Mtai l1iU creit in our (dlrecto. li andt the Turks, ho were just coming into range, began to drop raplidy. The Turkish advance now veered to the lett and went at the Russian trenches on the crest of the hills between Pelisat and Zeoglince with a shout, opening fine at thsame time. The Turks descended nlut a hollow and were lost to sight for a time. while the Russian trenches flamed and smoked, and a storm of halls was poured into the advancing Turks. This must have lasted fifteen or twenty minutes, during which time a fearful loss of life must have occurred. Then we saiv the Turks begin to withdraw carrying off their wounded. The Turks had no fsooner withdrawn from the Russian fire than they formed and advanced again. Many dead bodies of Turks were found within ten feet of the Russian trenches. The little slope or crest on which the trenches were situated was literally dvered with dead. I counted seven on a space of not more than ten feet square. The battle here was terrible, but the Turks were again repulsed. It will hardly be believed that they went at it again, and yet they did so. It seemed madness, be cause we could see that the Russian fire never slacked an instant and that the Russian line never wavered while reserves were waiting behind, ready t.o fall in at tire least sign of wavering. The scene of carnage was again repeated, but only lasted a moment; the Turks, com pletely broken withdrew sullenly, firing and carryin otff their woundedl andi many of their dead. Thyv fell back on a redoubt which they had first taiken, apparently with the in tention of hIolding it, but were not allowed to remain long. Another attack on tIhe iRussian centre had been equally unsuccessful as that on the Russian trenches on tire left. The Russians pursued the retreating Turks with a mlurderlous fire. Hix companies went at them with the bayonet andl swept them out of the redoubt like a whirlwind. At 4 o'clock the Turks were in retreateverywhere, and the Russians occupied the whole of their first po sitions, besides pursuing the Turks a short distance with cavalry. The Russians were about 20,000 strong. Their loss is estimated at r0V, and the Turkish 0000 killed and wounded. A Bloody Week Promled. LoN.ooN, Sept. 4.-The news of the week promises tobebloodv. The summer is going, and decisive results become every day of more importance to the Russians for there are indications not to be disregardtld-finan cial, political and social- -whch point agins.t the probability of a continuance of the war into another campaign.

The following petition was intraodrce.l ry Admilistrator Cavanac and read this after ncor at the meeting of the City Coelncl : To) thn Honorable the Manor and Counlllil of New Orl.ans: Irntlemrn -Thle uindersigned, having a l1 reot inter'est itl the welfare of this city. Indi reotly interested in the oroduction antid cononm ical handling of the suilar pr odechul in this State and marketewl here, andc seeing cITrrte boeinf made to secure an tljustrrlient of the relations of the Sugar htod C(orenpany towards the city, greatly to the disad vantage ,of the Intter, begs leave to say: 1. 'that there probably exists no doubt in the mind of any citizen who has given any thought to the subject, nor in the mined of any one of your honorable body, that the whole nsugar shed sche: e was conceived in iniquity. 2. That all the probabilites are that not one of you believes that any ucih hsum ($240,fHir ias is claimed to have. heeln epenrlde iy the comlpanry was speut tfor Pereting sheols, and that each andl every one of you ililleves, with that portion of the general conmrunity who have inquired into the sly j Ct, that the company iswned to acttorneys and others large sums onf 'preferred stoek ' for services ran derdl in securing a charter andi special preivi i. )hat your honorable bodyV knows that the sald company has ever hrbn, is, Iand will be (if permitted to exist) a dlirect hu thnn on the produciers of sugar and molasses, and cnsequenitly, an inctbus (oT the city anon tato u at large. 4. That you are surely aware thet there exists no shadow of right on theo part fit city or State to grant to any private corporation, or to any private citiren the right to levy a trx on any produce landfe at our wharves, vern though it he claimed that said corpora, tion or citizen tenders a cquill pro quo. The chlartar .of this company comprehends the power to tar all sugar and miolasses landed on the levee. fi. Your honorable body are also aware that the landings in front of this city are open, like the public highway, to the colmmerce of' the world, subject only to such restrictions at, youlr hands as are necessary to their proper. police andu conduct. Therefore you have no power ti expropriate any portion of sald land wng to the use and profit of private corpora ticns or ilndividuals. I. You have, through your cormmitte, clearly ascertained that the company has largely failed even in its pecuniary obeliga tions teo the city itself, while anassinga money it hadl no right to, and declaring large divi deils to stockholders- thus exhibiting, by shiocking greed and illegal avoidance, a teotal want of that senac of duty to society without which no corporat.loi should exist. 7. Your honorable body must hie aware that the sheds of this company have ever beoen a most serious obstacle to the movement of bothl incoming and outgoing freights. There is a necessary demand for large space in front of the boats that land nearly all the sigar and molasses broulght here as well as for the reeeption by the hots yof the laIre return freights, an oever since the absorption of the lrevee biy the warehouses called sugar shela the movemert of both classes of freight has been greatly hampered, and to the ldetrlment of all conmerned. h.le intelligence of your honorable body cannot permit you to consider the so-called "advantages" offered tohe producer in shel tering his sugar, as you are fully aware that neither cOrporations nor Individulals offer "advantages" gratis. *A profit must be made off the producer, or the company ovuli exist; and for you to expropriate your q landings to exclusive private nggra se mrent is utterly violative of law and general right. Inlt the company is of no, general advan tage to the pr(oducer, even if you hadl the right to give it the landing. Fair inquilry will show you that the great mass of the crops of sugar and molasses reaching this market is sold within a few hours after leaving the boats or railroads, and while it yet lies oin the open levee. There is but one small class of the people to whom the sheds are generlly useful, viz: the middle men who purcha ... first handls and sell gradinally to deale, rrs, all that they pay for use of the sheds much delad expense attached to sugar W molasses, for the producer and consumer pay it at last. 9. Your honorable body cannot he unaware of the farts as to the mode of flow of sugar from the producers into this market, and that being produced in great measure on the bankh of the Mississippi and its trlturtaies, with planters poseossing at home more or Iess ample facilities for storage, this flow Is greatly regulatel thereby. 'lhere is only one short term of anything approaching glut, in the market, that. being regulatued by the pl'iunilary (lemand of tihe merelhanrt on the priteiter end when we hadl no sheids the pro ricmer sufleredr no more in this respect' trhan he do(es now. 10. In permitting the oxi'stenee of thio rno nopolfy your hor.,orallfe body not only do wrong, as set forth, buIt, you do a doublest wrong in permitting, or indleed' fotering, a llstinctiv e tburt.hrn on a single article of corm merce, and confining the field to one suet of men. If it is legitimatrne, wise and profltable thus to invuade general rights and to hamler industry, open wide the field and invite pro porsals for all men who are unwilling to work, burt who wiuld fattem on the work of oth+ers, tr, tid for the privilege of all yourr Iandigrlrr that they may shed co)ttim, trlbar'o, (.ir'n, rirat--everything that comes to the market. 11. But more than all, you hamve lbe rem cently memoralizedl by a commrnittee of PitA znls of the highest, respect.ability, andl with large interests at stake, and this "ornittoei' has distinctly charged tihe Hurgrl' Shled (Corn p any with systermatically exacting from tlhem illegal and extortionate charges on sl gar and mnolasses. 12. Your honorable bodtl hors, through a duly appointsl comrrmittee, carerfully investi gated those charges, and yo) have found that. they are positively true trh.t the company has not bten smtisfiel. wilt .xactirng what Ifs illlfgrl Iharite' permittled, burt that it has ',' t,hrtisl from unwilling inrdus.try far ronre than this. i., More, yoll have, in the course of your investigation, found that in their grei' for unhrol y polf the comrpany this oven forfitelt its chlarter- -that it in reality ro longer exists. 14.
