The Governor s gratly disturbed in regard to a@ duty in disposing of David Feuderson and 'Whisky Bill," who are under sentence of death for murder. These min were oonvicted on in dictments presentd by the Frank Grand Jury, Impaneled by Judge Braughn when noting a Jaldge of the Superior Criminal Court by appoint e.unt of Judge Atooha. They were convicted, however, and sentenced, after Judge Braugha had been appointed to the judgeship by Kellogg, subsequent to the death audge Atooha. It may be rembe It tM Judge Atooha, being unable to attend to the duties of his office, believed himself authorised by the eot creating the Superior Criminal Court to appoint a judge ad Interim to supply bhi plea on the bench utI that court, and under this inerpreation of the law apponmted Sudge Braul to the poetion sorle imae in the month of hbrua, 1874. 1 Judge Bruangh, Ouder this appintmant, aeumed the duties of the boea, pmMalnled a Grand Jury and proceeded to the trial of all tese brought before he court. e acted under the appointment of udge Atoo, s m e py - plying his place ad nterim till the 1 th or whenbe was reularly a pponted to the beno of the Superior Criminal COurt by Kelloag, to sup. ply the acaney occasloned by the death of Judg Mocha. Prior to the 11th of April he was more. Iy judge ad intertim by ppuintment of Judge .otoha, but after that date hi vestiture or authority was b appointment and oommiuon of the Governer of the State. Judge Braughn' authority was questioned, and the IrgalUty of the Grand Jury impaneled by him during blo oooupancy of the bench ad interin denied in a number of oenes, whloh were ap sealed to the upreme Conurt, and upon wh4ho eoeislous were provoked. In the first of these oases, that of the Stats against Pete Phillipe, convicted on an indietment found by the Frank Grand Jury-the one impaneled by Braughn- and before Braugbn, while acting as Judge ad i.derint, and by him sentenced to a term of five years m the penitentiary, the tupreme Court de. cided that 'the statute No. 124 of the General Assembly of 1874, conferring on the Judge of the Superior Criminal Court the power to appoint an attorney to aot in hise place is unoonstitutional, because it provides a mode of choosing judge different from that prescribed in the constitu tion." A7 M. 968. In this case the indictment, trial, conviction and sentence were all secured while Judge Braugbn was acting on the appointment of Judge Atooha, and the question elists in the Governor's mind whether or nor the deocison of the SuBpreme Court disposing of it does not taint with illegality all the acte of Judge Braughn prior to his conammission by Kellogi on the tweltfh of April, 187t. Feaderson and "Whisky Bill" were indicted by ths Grand Jury, but were tried, coovicted and sentenced subsequent tqjbe twelfth of April and after Judge Braughn hne the com mission of the GOvernor. The case of Fenderson was appealed on the Sground that the Grand Jury which found the bill of indictment was impaneled by Judge Braughn, while oacting under appointment of Judge Atocha. The Supreme Court, in affirming the Iudament of the lower oourt, said: "Phe counsel for defendant has urged the court to take jndiaei oognisanoe of the fact that at the time the Grand Jury which found the Indictment in this ease was impaneled Judge Braughn was presiding in toe court, and that be was not then Judge of the court, but was acting under an ap pot.tment from Judge Atooha, the presiding Jedge. This we cannot do. We have no legal means of knowing whether Judge Atocha pre asided in his court that day or nut, even if the Grand Jury was impaneled bet ire Judge Brangho was legally appointed judge of that court. Nor en we tell when the Grand Jury was iapaneled, The faot whtoh the counsel wi oee as to as'ume as true should have been shown in - lga aby. le this rourdal it the a fot.L" tiimly dealdes that the court d not tas judicial ognizasce of the facts timpugnteglhstutib tyofJndge Draugha toim panel the nd jury, upon which the appeal was so nothing sloe than an en eehuurment that saUxop tions to the ven" e tust be made O ea ret day of the tarsi othet'wise thsy are considered I waived. This Judgment wd rendered oa t. o enseive pp but previous to this Pendereon had appl a writ of habeas corpus, which had been refused by the Supreme Court. In passing upon this applcation the court said: "The only ilegality complained of is the seleo. -on of the Grand Jury by G. H. Braughn while he acted under the appointment from Judge Atocha and before his commission by the Got ernor. Can this illegal ty be inquired into after conviction and sentence by the writ of habeas corpus ?" The court said not, and that habeas corpus was not the proper remedy. "The writ of habeas corpus was never designed to be a writ of error, by which the errors or irregularities of final judgments could be revised." To summarize, Pete Puillips, convicted of a minor fftnse. was liberated upon the ground that Judge Braughn was not the lawful judge of the Superior Criminal Court prior to April 12, 1874, and that none of his scte prior to that date are entitled to any credit whatever; but Fendereon and "Whisky- Bill" are not disoharged, though convicted on an indiotment that has been decided to be of no effect, upon mere technicalities of practice. In the first Instance it was decided that habeas corpus was not tub proper remedy and in the second that the court could not take judicial cognisance of a fact not presented in the pleadings. These are ciroumetances which may wellperplex a conscientious offical, and the Governor is very positive in his determination not to sign the death war rents of these men unless he shall become o un vinced that they have been legally indicted, tried and condemned. He is not dlsposed to question the decisions of the BSupreme Court, as legal propositions, but is he not obliged, in the exer ose of his large discretion, to take cognizance of facts whioh would most certainly have operated the release of these condemned men had they not been exaluded from the consideration of the Supreme Ooart by a mere technioality ? The Gov ernor is not only a v ry conscientious man, but he is also an excellent lawyer, and we have no doubt that he wil in the end rehob a just and righteous oonoluilon, and one which wil protect the interests of society as well lb do entire ju tisoe to the men themselves. The position is a very trying one, but it is one which cannot be evaded, nor is Gov. ionolles the man to resort to evasions of any kind. In asking the question we deeply sympathize with him, but what is heto do? If he pardone these men he recognizes the legality of their convictions not less than he would in signing their death warrants. Shall he simply order, arbitrarily, their release? Were this done, say some of the doctore, they could not be re-arrested and put on trial a second time, for no man can be put in Jeopardy twice for the same offense. It would be argued that the jeopardy resulting from an illegal convitiou is not such as the law contemplates; but it would be the merest folly to sayt at these men are not now in jeopardy, and of the most serious nature. In oriminal cases appeals to the aSupreme Court can be taken only on questions of law, and the court can take oognizanoe only of esuch fact as appear on the face of the pleadings. The essential fact in Fenderson's case was not made so to appear, and the Supreme Court, in the exercise of its sole but exclusive authority to paess upon legal exceptions, has de clared that the convictions were legally obtained and scannot be avoided. The legality of a judge, like the legality of a juror, must be properly pre sented, and is, at most, but a legal exception. These are questions within the province of the courte, belong exclusively to the judicial disore tion, and are settled and determined before they reach the executive, who can but pardon or Execute, in either of which alternatives he recognizes the completeness of the judicial funcotions whose dischyrge was but a precedent to the exerolse of the execative powere. These are the arguments presented by those who claim that the Governor can only take into considera tion such circumstances as would control him in ordinary cases; but there is no limit to the ex ecutive discretion, and the matter may be safety lft entirely with the Governor.

Royf eI o9 Oirtrea of khe Best ash ons in. 4 a : q Weeds ter a Paflu i Railroad. Notwlthsetadlng all that ha heretofor been written and said In advoosoy of the New Orleaie Paidsf BRllway, it is our belief that at 0 time has its importance been more thoroughly appre oated and the necesety of It early completion been so generally recognizeold than at this present writing. Hundreds of those who, for one reason or another, opposed the scheme at its Inception have, to use the political term, "eome over," and from the noisy thoroughfares of com merce to the more quiet suburbs, where the modest householder has his home, there come expresslons of earnest desire to see this road completed and a new avenue to trade opened to our city. The apathy and lag gardinee of which our people have for so long been accused appears to be breaking, and if the opinions gleaned from Interviews with merchants, tradesmen and others can be any criterion, there can be but little doubt but what the property holder will realise the aurrnroam sanrite to aeer, and with his oapital come forward and build the small gap yet remaining to put us in close communication with the growing inland marts of Texas. WHAT nOTEL WRIuPEr MAY. A reporter of the DMaocnAT dropped in upon Mr. Mumford, of the firm of Mumford & Watson, proprietors of that well known hostelry, the Oilty Hotel, and the ease, already made plain, was made more so by that courteous gentle man. Reporter'-Mr. Mumford. I have called upon you as connected with the hotel where probably more than anywhere else visitors from Texas re sort, for the purpos e of learning how far the re cent eneroachments of St. Louis have affected Texas travel, that is OOMMERdlAL, TRAVEL, to our oity. Have you remarked any change within the last two yeare? Mr. Rumford-Of course we have, sir; and a very great change, too. You can hardly believe how mnoh business travel from Texas has dropped off of late since the two Ines of railroad have been running through Northern Texas up to 6t. Louis. Itep .You, then, by the registered guests, can tell this ? Mr. M.-Very easily, sir. Why at one time there was hardly a train over the Morgan road that came in without bringing us from fifty to sev enty-five guests. These arrivals were every day, and they came to MAiE THENI PUnORAMES, and sometimes would not stay more than a day or two when they would go back to be replaced by more. Indeed, at one time we became so crowded we fitted up a large stou over the 810 comb hardware store, which was specially re served for our Texas friends, and whlob was al ways full during the business season. Owing to the falling off In travel we have not had occasion to use it for a long time. Rep.-Do you think, Mt. Rumford, if our Pacoi fie Railroad was completed to Texas, as project ed, we would BEOAIN ThAT TRADI once more? Mr. M.-Unquestionably. If we had rail com munication to-day with texas the results from it would be felt almost at once. Property would be enhanced in value, buetnese would increase, and in every channel of commerce the benefits from this current would be felt. nrp.-The exans prefer dealing with the New Orleans merchants do they not ? Mr. M.--Yes sir, and they would like It patl cularly if they did not have to eros the OGird As a rule, the inland merchants have a horror t sea steases, s do most other people and if this rail communication was established, the trade would be much larger than it bas heretofore been. I wish I cold-Mhow you some registers of the hotel that are now packed away, forit would need but a moments comparison between them sad those of to-day to convin.n ou of the large amount of travel here thea and the oes we have sastained. It seems to me that svery,person who OWNt A TOOT OF PROPIaTT in New Orleans ought to reonrza what seems so simple to those who by their avocation know best about the trade of this city. Visitors here always leave a considerable amount over and above what is required for necessities and out side of what might be called strictly inside of the term "businese." That this enhances the value of property is too simple a propoition to require an answer, and what they invest strictly in busi ness or trade every body knows is what gives a metropolis its wealth. Rep.-Would not rents be increased if this tide set in towards us ? Mr. M.-I believe they would, but all with whom I have spoken agree that they would will ingly pay the advance, because the increase of traffic would warrant it. The next gentleman called upon was COL. R. E. RIVYES, of the commodious St. Charles Hotel, who was very emphatic in his views on the railroad ques tion. B.p.--olonel, I wanted your ideas on the subjeot of the Pacifio Railroad, and the necessi ties that exist for its speedy comlstion - Col. R., with some warmth-"I'll give them to you with a great deal of pleasure, and I wish that something was done to push this great work for ward, and that at ones. To make the true con. dition of the case perfectly palpable to you I need only to say t'at a few days ago I took the pains to look over the REGISTERS OF THE ST. CHARLES HOTEL for the years 1870 and 1871. Those registers show an average of forty or more arrivals by the Morgan Bailroad daily. These arrivals would leave, outside of their ordinary bills, at least $25 here. Now it is a rare thing for us to receive two a day. Rep--Bae this travel fallen off then as much as this ? Col. It-This is not all. It is not only in the falling off of those who formerly came here to make their purchases and thus create trade, but they were nearly always acoompanied by some one or two of their family. Now in m making their business tripe, they go quickly by rail to it. Loes, transact what they have to do and return. Rep.-I would Judge, Colonel, that there could be no better place from which to GAUGE THE TRADE of a city than from a hotel standpoint? (GoL B.-There is none, sir. I can stand here and tell you almost with mathematical accuracy the condition of business here. I see by my own business falling off that that of the city is also. Previous to the heart of Texas being tapped by the Iron Mountain and the other line our books show what our trade with that State was and im mediately following their opening how it full off. Bep.-This has materially advanced St. Louis interests then? GOoL B.-I should say so. In St. Louis to-day and for the last two months, there is not hotel capacity enough to aooommodate the people ar riving there. When I returned to this city lately I made it my business to come by the Iron Mountain road just to see WHAT ATTRACTIONS IT OFFERED to the Texan traveling public. I found that trains frequently ran one hundred miles without stopping, except to take in wood and water. Merchants find that they can have speedy transit, and they go to St. Louis. Rep.-They would prefer to come here, though, would they hot ? Col. B.--Yes, sir; there can be no question of that. This is a point they have heretofore and still do naturally look to, and to which they will return whenever equal facilities are offered them. Bep.-Don't you feel satisfied that property would go up immediately upon the opening of our Texts road, and rents increase ? Col. R.-I don't know how I can better answer that question than by telling you I formerly paid my servants $30 per month, and now I only give them $15. Little more need be said, I think, to prove what we have lost and what thi road would bring back to us. (Warming with his subject., I do think, sir, when I look around and see day after day our trade leaving us, our secumulated capital dormant, our property-holders idle and yet this road open to us for speeay!relief, I do think our people are We a re i *Iu toward ruin unless some ath is , the sooner these people ind 'ins0 FIVE TaniE TaS RUtINigse we do if we leave out the cotton staple.

In the matter of the mandamus directed against the Attorney General in the saut of the State on the relation of Martin Lanmee, against the Slanghter-house Company, to compel him to sign the peti ion in order to give the relators a standing in court, Attorney General Ogden offers the following explanation of his refusal: He says, were he satisfied that in signing the petition presented to him by relatore he was.er orming a merely ministerial duty, as is elaimed in their petition, he should not hesitate; but he believes that the State is a party with real Man important Interest, at stake in this suit, which involves the forfeiture of the ehater privileges of one of the Ltate's corporat one, and he has therefore Insisted that his duty is to exsamie the question theroughly, and then be determined tn his proceedings solely by the interests of t .e Stits. This suit, It seems,. was brought nader the intrusion into office set, ender which the signing of the petition Is purely mhnsterial; but the At torney General does not believe that this set goveras in this eose, and is controlled by the seventh paragraph in section 181 of the hlvised Statutes. He stes that Mr. Wash. , tng he attorney of relators, presented him the petition forlll si re as moere formality, and that he stated to him the objections set forth above, and his cooviotion that the Sate had real interests whihob he was obligated to represent and protect, and be insisted that he must be given time for consideration. The attorney fee relators sok a different view of the question, thought his signa ture to the petition a mere form, and, becoming impatient, made his application for mandamus. The Attorney General will simply present his views to Judge Rightor and then conform to his interpretation of the law. Not the Same Callbre. The Times' reporter has "found" the following marvelous way of tellljg it. We quote: "The next morning witnesses looked under the bed, and found a four-barrelled Sharpe pistol, which was produced, but found to be of a smaller calibre than that found in Lockwood's body." The public has no doubt been dumbfounded at this statement. We had not heard before that a four-barreled Sharpe pistol had been found in Lockwood's body, but such bemg the case the whole situation is changed. It is now lncum bent upon the police to find the ball from which must have been shot the four-barreled Lharpe pistol aforesaid. The istol could not have come there by itself, and if the matter is not explained the memory of the dead will be followed to the remotest Times with the reproach of carrying concealed weapons. BALL OF THE KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS. The entertainment given last night at Grune wald Hall by Orleans Lodge No. I of the Knights of Pythias was not only a very pleasant affair, but was marked by excellent management. The dancing, as might have been expected with the pleasant weather, was kept up until a late hour in the morning. St. Patrick's Hall. We have received the visit of Mr. Abe Seavert. agent of Mme. Bentz's Female Minstrels, who informs us that he has secured St. Patrick's Hall for a short seasoo, beginning on BSunday, Novem ber 4, for the performances of his company. The company comprises Lester and Alien, the end men, and Misses Ballie Adams, Rosa Lee, Viola Clifton, Louise Montague, Luin Mortimer, Hattie Forrest, Nellie Young, Fanny Florence, Bosita Leonie, and Mr. James Collins. Several of these ladies have very pretty voices, and some that we know of are very handsome, a quality, by the way, that has never injured a wo man on the stage. St. Patrick's Hall willwe are in formed, be specially arranged for the season, in fact it will be converted into a theatre by means of new stage appliances, with new scenery, now being painted, and the auditorium will be so im proved as to permit of a good view of the stage from every part of the hall. DILLIARDS. Sexton and Dion. By a letter received here yesterday from Sex ton, the famous billiard at, it is learned that he has made a match with Cyriile Dion, to be played on November 14 in New York. The terms of the match are not stated, but it is hinted in the letter that Sexton had to resort to a little strategy to get the match, and that he only secured it by offering to bet Dion $100 that he would not play a match game with him (dexton). Dion gobbled this bet up, made the match, and pocketed the $100 in greenbacks. After the match Sexton will come to New Orleans for his health and spend a portion of the winter, making his headquarters at Joe Walker's Orescent Hal, as usenal. PERSONAL.

Several of the ladies are already known favorably here, and need no com mendation. The only thing that the company used to lack was completeness and variety, and we are assured that they are now all that could be desired.
