New Orleans lost yesterday one of its most
esteemed citizens in the person of Mr. Andre
Brousseau. This gentleman, though born in
Canada, was identilfied with the State of Louis
iana by a residence in this city of over thirty
five years. By close attention to business,
honest industry, and intelligent enterprise,
he acquired a fortune sulliclent to start his
children in life and leave them a foundation
for working future prosperity.
His stepchildren, who loved and revered
him as a father, can be numbered among the
best citizens in Louisiana. Among them we
must mention Senator J. D. White, who is an
honor to the New Orleans bar, ranking high
on the list of those who have worked early
and late for the liberation and reformation of
our state. Mr. Brousseau was one of those
men whose demise a whole community de
plores, and whose loss a host of friends and a
bereaved family mourn. Honest, upright,
just, kind and sincere, a patt of kindly feel
ings and mournful memories follow his soul
in ito upward Ilight to rest and everlasting

DlIIRontent at Constantinople.
iPlaris Correspondence of the N. Y. Times.i
At Constantinople the popular discontent is
at its height; the appointment of a Christian
(Governor to Rlounelia, where 80 per cent of
the inhabitants are Mussuhlmans, is consid
ered an outrage, and the feeling is stronger
against the English than against the Rus
sians. With true Oriental fatalism, they sub
mitted to their conquerers; it was the fortune
or war; their em iire was dismembered; they
could not make effoective opposition, and they
called it their Kiiumet. But that the British,
who had promised to protect them, should
partake in their spoils they cannot readily
forgive and so they breathe bitter curses
against the power whicih betrayed and sold
them for a morsel of their territory. They
are in no way dupes of the English; they
know that by extending their protectorate
into Asia, England guarantees, not Ottoman,
but English interests and they will act in con
sequence. Mistrusting alike pretended friends
and avowred enemies, they will play fast and
loose with both, hoping thereby to) secure for
themselves a comparative well-being by the
opposition of antagonistic inlluences. It is
probable, that this game will for a while be
successful, but the future is not promising.
Russia and England will henceforward stand
face to face in Asia. The protectorate ex
tended over Turkey is nothing but a flimsy
veil which at any moment may bie torn asidle
to show English cannons turned uplon Russia
and ready to detend the road to India. The
remains of the Ottoman empire will be the
lield of hattle of the rival powers, and the
Turks will look on at the struggle, detesting
equally those who attack and those who de
fend the rights of Islanm.
A New Way to Pay Old Debts.
A Frenchman named Courtade has found a
new way to pay a back rent. He was sued for
arrears and threatened with expulsion. He
insisted that the judge, the clerk, the bailiff
and the landlord should examine tihe prem
ises. These four men with the landlord's wife
entered the yard together and the tenant told
them he was willing to pay up, only he want
edl an extra grange and the well. He said,
"I'li go and letch the agreement," and went
into the house. lie brought back two guns
and a pistol. "Now," he said, "we are on the
battlefleld. We must all die here. These are
for you-this for me." And he pointed to the
arms in his hands. "Come, come," said the
judge, kindly, "this is childishness. Put down
those arms." Courtade fired, and the land
lord and the judge fell dead where they had
stood. The clerk and the bailiff followed
next. The landlord's wife ran into the house
and locked the door. Courtade followed her
and fired through the window. She had a
child in her arms. Both fell. He then walked
quietly to his own place and shut himself up.
The house was soon surrounded. He tried to
kill himself, but did not succeed. The four
men in the yard were dead. The woman,
thanks to her presence of mind, escaped.
Courtade tried to appear mad, but did not de
ceive the doctors. He is terribly afraid of dy
in' now. He hopes to have the sentence of
death commuted to hard labor for life.
One independent candidate in Fleming
county Ky., offers if elected to the county
judgeship to discharge the duties of the office
for $200 a year, while the independent candi
date for jailer in Warren promises to spend
$1000 a year among the negroes for books.
1M. W. B. in Puck.]
When the early worm-bird quits his nest;
When the sun springs up from ocean's breast;
When the cock crows invitation;
When open the flowers, and the trees
Sprinkle the ground at every breeze
With drops of perspiration;
When to his sky home soars the lark-
'Tis sweet to walk through Central Park
In nature's contemplation.
'Tis sweet to quaff the fragrant air,
Or the water at the Spa-r,
And grow as hungry as a bear,
But oh -'tis sweeter far
To lie abed until nine--and then
Turn over again ; and snooze till ten.
TIHE GREENBACK (CIEEI).
DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLAE MADE
IBY TIlE RECENT MEETING IN
WAShn (iTON, Aug. 7.-- The following is the
declaration of principles adopted by the moem
bers of the Greenback party who assembled
in this city on Tuesday nightu:
We believe the two great political parties,
as now constituted, to be so completely under
the control of oflice-seekers, professional poll
ticians, bankers and money-mongers that it
Is unsafe longer to intrust to them this gov
We believe that intelligent and pure men,
regardless of former party assoilations,
should lill all positions of trust and responsi
We are opposed to third terms for public
oflices, except in those cases where skill and
experience are indispensable to the proper
performance of the required services.
We believe the powers of the general gov
ernment are restricted to the exprsess grants
of the constitution, an(d all powers not grant
ed are reserved to the State and the people
We believe that the right of States to tax
property in the States is inviolable, and that
n United States I)onds should bear the burden
of government equally with all other prop
erty and any irgishitoiti thatr , emnpts, said
bonds from taxation is unjust and oppressive.
We favor a full legal-tender currency for
the government and the people, the laborer
and the oflice-holher, the pensioner and the
soldier, tie producer and the bondholder-- a
currency alike in value in every man's hand
wherever the A rnerican lag Iloats. as an em
blem of sovereignty.
We demand the imiimediate and uncondi
tional repeal of the:so-called resumption act,
the lawful liberation of the coin hoarded in
the T'reasury, and the rcnioval of all restric
tions to the coinage (f silver.
While we favor the circulation of gold and
silevr as money, yet realizing that specie never
has been and never can be sullicient to supply
the commnne'rcial demands of the country, we
1 therefore fivor the issue of treasury notes
tob such extent as will fully satisfy the re
quirements of trade, and that such notes be
I made full legal tender.
We believe that the national bank system is
oppressive to the people, and therefore dle
rnand the retireilment of bank currency and
the substitution of greenbacks therefor.
We declare that all bonds and obligations of
the national government ought to be paid l n
leIgal tender notesof the United States, except
where it is otherwise provided by the original
law under which they were issued; and all
that can be called in andi paid now should be
paid at once, and the remainder as soon as
I it can be lawfully done.
We oppose the further issue of Interest
bearing bonds on any account, at any rat+e of
interest, by the government.
While we oppose monopolies, subsidlies. andl
special privileges, we favor a judicious ex
penditure of treasury notes on internal iim
provements, and in the construction of such
rail highways as will furnish protection
to our maritime and land frontiers and open
new markets for the products of American
We IbeliOve that an economic al expenditure

the market of that republic, asi well as those
I of Australia, China and Japan, whose trade
will invigorate and sustain our manufactur
ing and Industrial interests to a greater ex
f tent than any other system of internal im
provements could possibly dto.
We believe that the publio lands are the
common property of the whole people, and

The Moflett Register.
The Moffett register still runs its remorse
less career in Virginia. It shows that the
good people of the Old Dominion's capital
know full well how to crook the pregnant
hinges of the elbow, for in the eleven months
ending July 31 last the register shows the
consumption of 1,1443,45 alcoholic drinks and
1,567,120 malt drinks, netting the handsome
total tax of S43,!937 06. The barkeepers, how
ever, are beginning to get the hang of the in
strument, and it isn't as deadly as it was.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.
Reef to the Northwest of Point Pucocho, Coast of
The Maritime Sub-Delegate of the Bay of Coronel
states that lie has discovered and taken the bearings
of a hitherto unknown reef. eituated 1810 metres to
the north and 66 '+0 west of the extreme south of
SPoint Pucobo. The rock is mre or loss circular in
form, nearly flat on top and with a diameter of 15 to
20 metres. The soundings over it are from 9 to 10
metres, except in its extreme north, whore they are
only 7.3 metres.
On the 22, of June, at low tide, a strong current
was no' e in the vicinity of the reef, which reachen
three miles an hour in the direction of the Bay of Co
ronel. This extraordinary current is purely acci
dental and has its origin in the cmntinued winds
from the 4th quadrant which blow during the month,
and in the great discharge from the river Biobo. in
consequence of' the abundant rains.
