Our contemporary, the Bee, incidentally
complains that one of the iron gates of the
"Place d'Armes" (Congo Square) has been
broken for a long time, and requires the at
tention of the Administrator of Improve
ments. The matter properly belongs, how
ever, to the Administrator of Police, who
would doubtless have it repaired, but that
nearly every square in the city is in the same
condition, and that to repair the gates and
railings of every one would probably cost a
large sum of money--an article of some
scarcity in the city treasury.
THE INSUIRANCE AGIBNTl.
A committee, representing the foreign in
surances doing business In this city, waited
on Mayor Patton yesterday to expostulate
against the license tax of $1000 on each of the
insurance companies for which they are
agents. They complain that such a tax, if
enforced, would be ruinous to their business,
which does not justify the outlay. Five hun
dred dollars on each company represented by
themn they thought would be a large enough
license, and they a kI that the existing ordi
nance he amended so as to substitute that
figure for the first mentioned. The Mayor
having explained to the delegation that the
reduction would depend upon the wishes of a
majority of the Council, it was agreed that
the gentlemen representing the insurance
agents should meet the Council in committee
of the whole to discuss the subject.
Adminlitrator Behan is causing the flat
boats moored at Thalla street to be removed
as fast as they are discharged, in order to
afford all the room possible to sehgoing ves
sels. There are still several flats at that
landing, but no additional permits to moor
there will be Issued until all have been dis
charged and removed. Thereafter permits
will be granted only when there will be no
possibility of Interference of the flattboats
with the vessels to which this particular land
ing place has been assigned.
Administrator Bohan is meeting with an
unexpected embarrassment. One of the mar
ket farmers has applied to him recently to
cause the enforcement of certain city or
dinances, in relation to the markets, which in
volves the making of affidavits and the pros
ecution of persons violating these ordinances(
On the one hand the market farmers claim
that the city has charge of the policing of the
uarkets. and is bound to prosecute offenders
against its laws applying to the markets;
that unless such a course is pursud tht
farmers will ie compelled in the future tA)
avoid purchasing the market revenues, if
they must incur the legal expense attendant
upon the prosecution of offenders.
Administrator Behan seems to take a sim
ilar view of the situation, but one of the legal
minds of thegovern ment appears to entertaln
the Idea that the farmers having contracted
to take charge of the markets for one month,
for a stlpulated sum, it is their business to
see that their Interests do not suffer from
violations of law during the term of their
lease. The question will probably have to be
solved by the committee of the whole.
The necessity of keeping sidewalks clear of
encumbrances was illustrated on Wednesday
evening, in a painful manner, by the way. Mr.
Peter O'Donnel, the well-known stationer of
Camp street, was crossing from the south to
the north side of that street about 8 o'clock
on Wednesday evening, and upon reaching
the sidewalk stepped on a small garbage tx,
which he thought was bet om upwards. Thre
mistake, though apparently a slight one, was
sufficient to cause Mr. O'Donnel to trip and
fall heavily against the curb, the consequence
being the dislocation of the knee-cap of one of
his legs. This occurred between (ravier and

The Mexican corvette "La Libertad," which

Valette dry dock, and was anchored mid
stream, opposite the central part of the city.
In anticipation of the occurrence the officers
of the vessel, who express great delight at
their sojourn among us, had issued the fol
lowlng invitation to a select few of their re
cently made riends :

At the appointed hour the invited guests,
including a number of ladies, crossed the
river and were received in Algiers by the offil
cers of the " Libertad," who escorted them in
the steam launch to the corvette. At 2 o'clock
in the afternoon the vessel weighed anchor,
and, bedecked with the colors of all nations,
gra efully glided up the river as far
as Twelve-Mile Point, turning about at
the Sonlat plantation. A splendid brass ban,!,
led by Oscar Wolff, was in attendance and en
livened the excursion, which was highly en

During the trip the company sat down to a
splendid rept)ast, prepared and served with
that bountiful liberality characteristic of the
Mexicans, during which fraternal toasts were
exchanged. Ma-anwhile the crew panadedti aln
went through the manual of arms in full
view of the party, the collation being spread
on the deck of the Liber tad. The armament
of the vessel was made a special subject of
interest during the excursion, the guis being
all of excellent manufacture (English), and
consisting of a mitrailleuse and six guns,
namely, four twenty-pounders, one twelve

THE GAL CASE.
In the United States Circuit Court, Judge
Billings preslding, yesterday, was the third
day of the trial of the gas case of Atril vs
Oglesby and Cassard. A go(od part of the
day was consumed in the skirmishing of the
lawyers on exceptions tcc evidence. Judge
Billings reconsidered and modified his ruling
of the day before on the admissiblility of evi
dence offered by the plaintiff, of the damagc
to his whole stock In the New Orleans Gas
Company, produced by the cloud thrown on
his title by the notice of the defendants.
The latter then opened their case on the re

join in reconvention aga neah h. it for dam
ages; that their actions shot d independ
iout, their liabilities separate, and there would
have to be separate verdicet against them.
On this exception arose a long, and, to the
jury, reporters anti bystanders, a wearisome
discussion, wicich drove the Judge to a recess
and lls chambers to examine authorities.
Returning therefromi he gave a learned rul
ing against the exception, and then the recon

Depositions of several witnesses residilng
in Baltimore were read, the general purport
of which was to show up Mr. Phipp, the mys
terious ferret of Atril, as he so styled him,
and yet who had represented him (Atril) in
the purchase of the stock of the Crescent City
(las C(mpany, of which Atril finally turned
up the sole and whole owner. According to
these witntesse Phipp was in laltimore a very
insignificant purchaser, a clerk or man of
all work tor Atril, who lived In a fourth
story; made his marketing in a small basket;
never had a larger salary than a thousand
dollars a year; andt "fetched and carried,"
for Atrll in all his multifarious operations.
Andi yet. to hin was driven in all the other
stockholders in the ,it, a ; and having hived all
the stock he delivere d it over to his master,
Atril, and then vanishred from the scene of
ilis brilliant operatiots.

M r. Pattersoni, however, deposes strongly
tco the unreality of Atril's professions of cce

tuild gas works or lay down pipits; his whole
