ihdted in the not of iConugress determining the

To sustain this point Judae Billings quoted
from I Wall. Supta. and, nontinuing, eahl: "A
cane arining tiun-ir the constitution having
been prreenttol to the Oiroult Court the lans
tion contes tno whether the oase be one In which
the tlaintlifs have a title to an injunction," and
In the conshleralion he reverted to the fact that
the allegatlons In the bill of complaint had not
been denied, nor in there any question that the
act of the Legislature repealing the charter le
the only obstacle to the continuance of the cor
poration. nor that, all departmentR of the State
government have sancti oned its validity. Lou

An. 743: act No. 17 of 1875. approved April a.
It was decidld shortly after the constitution
of the United Statoe was made that "the rights
legally vested in a corporation cannot be con
trolled or destroyed by any subsequent statuti,
unlens a power for that purpose be roservel'to
the Legislature in the ant of incorporation."
Wales vs. 8tetson. 2 Mass. 140.
Judge Billngs dwelt noon this ruling, which
he sald had Ibeen ctioncurred in by the Supreme
Court of the Untled States and the courts of the
United titats., "with a degree of unanimity
which h rdly any o- her opinion has obtained'
and he refeirred to Dartmouth Collegen vs. Wooi

3:t; Haw, horn vs. Colif. 2 Wall. le: Blnghamton
Bridge v , (thenango, :1 Wall. rt. The point
made Ih the Attorlney Goneral of the State that
the charter could be repealed "for the reason
that the I ranuollje was for the drawing of lot
tories," a i . tpased 1pon,. the court rullng that
"the anti orltlen are overwhelmingly against
the ptositl in talkes by ihe Attorney General andl
his assoe, do. for while lotteries are reprobated
ai havln an Immoral tendenoy." "neverthe
less, who i the grant ot the rlaht to draw lotter
ies htas tn 'in the form of an absolute contract
tilhe culrts ilavo treated the responibilillly of Its
exvecutlln. as resting entirely with the Loglsla
ture. and have idalt with It as carrying the oh
ligations which its torms import."
The conrt then, in further conslderation of
the iuocatlon, lait down the proposltlons:
First-That a llmore Ilicense to draw lotteries
whilch is not Iinspanlable from the executive
functions of a oirDporation, and whlnh has not
Iteen nto o upon and under whloh no rights
have been vesnte may eI, repealed by any snuc
ceeding Legimalet iure of the State in which it is
granted; andl. , mndu tlhat, whien a Illnnse to
iraw lotteries has Ilat actnd upon and under
it rlghts have bont vestued, i. cannot tie with
drawn by the Ilalntt itur nl to the projtdlie of
theose rights. and the power of tilhe Ltgisitatur
to recall or modify it to tl that extent gone.
These propositiohns w.'rec argued at eonsideir
ablelingth, and to .stablish themgn titotntattlns

Advantages of that Oa.tal to Now Orleans.
The survey of the lihe along which I hn Plaque at
minots parish eanal Is to be dug was begun in
June last. resumed a week ago. and is now 'onl
Vieated. (Capt. . Uncas Lewis retutrned from
the survey on Hunday evening and gives most
ennouraging reports of the work. The P'liclle
mines Canal Company was incorporated by net
of the Legislature, approved March 1., 1RH95, au- p
thoriving the company to deepen the Taglia- V
fero clanal. antu to construct a new canal by the
nearest and most direct. line to Bay Ilaptiate.
Capt. Lewis Informed us that the plan of op
erations is to be as follows:
Tagllafero canal, running into the Mississlppi e"
river three miles below Pointe-ala-lachbe. is to
be wldened 25 feet and deepened 5 foet for the c
present, with nrospeots of further improve- I'
mentu. Tagliafero canal is Ii mile in length
and emptles into iranud bayou.
The llue of survey follows Grand bayou to a
poinut
TWO MInRs FUBTHER DOWN. n
where the new canal is to be beguu. It will be
one-half mile long twenty-five feet wide and 1t
five feet deep, and is to connect Grand bayou
with Bayou Ohenier. and thits new canal opens
Into the latter bayou at, a point directly opposite
Bayou Bocols. which empties into Bay Bam
b ,Is. This bay is connected by Barou l bp
t tste with Bay Baptiste, an arm of Baraticrla
hay. The proposed canal, connecting with the l
I bayous and hays ab ve mentionued, makes ther
distance from the beginning of the Tagliatero
c anal to Granud Isle about twenty-five miles. utII
Sfrom New Orleans to Grand Isle sevenuty-five
ta miles. By the usual route fro.m New Orleans
Sto vGrand Isle t dstance is between ninty- a
t five uand ae m+ t about thirty miles of
,t it through dreary, sultry and uninhabited
a swamup lands. The advantages to the traveling
a public iy the proposed route
ARE INUAI tsAUarLE.
e The trip by boat d wn the Mississippi river
is recreating and affords the passenger op or
tunittes of enjoying the It autitul sceneries of
cultivated fields and Oine plantations. Then a
short iourney of one mile and a half through '
Canal eraglatero brings them to Grand bayou.
After a trip of sel miles of canals Bay Baptiste
is reached, and then Baratana bay. E
Yeeterday the dredageboat hags digging the a
new canal between Grand ba you and Bayou
h Chenter and after completing it, thetaskofwi
denloaanal Tagliafero will commence. Work
e will be pushed forward as vigorously as possl

l Annie Cook, asslated by several young ladles,
suvervised the concert.
SEverything went on smoothly until the reure
sentation of the tableau "The May lieuno." A
I spark from the blue light machine set fire to a
,f package of the colored compound. The audi- t
