The sub-committee of the House Comm ittee
on Militia have agreed upon a report on the
subject of reorganizing the militia, which will
be submitted to the full committee at their

that the (resent syst& m is obsolete and the
annual appropriatins are wholly inadequate
that. without interfering with the control oi
the sevrral States over their millitia forces, the
F1deral government should take action in the
nature of co-operation, and should make suff.
etent annual appropria'isns for arming and
supspling the mlitia, and to py the men for
service during the rescribed period of annual
enecmpment and drill.

way of the first mortgage bonds of the New
Orleans City Railroad Oompany, which bar i
per cant interest, ad are for sale by the First
National Iank in denominations of $l100 00, o
and 1oa00. a
The payment of the prlnoipal and interest of 1
these bonds Is absolutely assured, the oompany
depositng ever, week in the Canal Bank the
sum of $11rs. which is irrevocably pledged for
that purpose. There is further security for the

on valuable city real estate a. d upon all the
seven lines of the company, including the pop

can can be no sbaer or more desirable invest

view of the rapidly inoreasing volume of the l
business of the company and of the era of pros

State and city the wonder is thet they are not

The Chicago Tines recently published the
following statement:
"At the close of the last campaign Mr.
Abram 8. Hewitt and Lieut. Gov. Dorheimer
presented bills to Mr. Tilden, the former for
mtscellaneous expenses during the electoral
count, and the latter for the hotel f re of the
members of the St. Louis convention. The
Governor at that time refused to settle these
claims, but recently they were paid in full,
amounting to about $170,000."
Desiring to ascertain the truth respecting
these alle ations, we yesterday sent a repor
ter to Mr.Dorshemer and asked him the fol
lowing questions:
1. Is it true that Mr. Tilden has recently
paid yousa large sum of money, mtIlnv,
when added to what he is eald to have recently
paid the Hon. A. S. Hewitt, the sum of
2. Is it true that since the St. Louis conven
tion Mr. Tilden has been indebted to you for
the hotel fare of members of that convention
or for any other kind of political expenal
To these inquiries Mr. Dorsheimer replied
as follows:
"In answer to your questions, I say that
the statement made by the Chicago Times, so
far as the same relates to me, Is untrue. I
never bad a claim against Mr. Tilden of the
kind mentioned, nor of any other kind. He
never owed me any money, nor has he paid
me any. I never presented to him any bill
whatever. I never had any pecuniary trans
actions with him.
"Buch expenses as fell to me during the
campaign of 1876, except as respects a very
small sum, were paid by me. I never ex
pected Mr. Tilden to pay them; I never asked
him to pay them, nor has he paid them In
whole or in part."

There are symptome of another dangerou
outbreak of pedestrianism in New York. Al.
ready men are talking of the second conteet
ifor the O'Lesry belt, which is announoed to
begin on the fifth of next month, when Sam
Merritt, the hero of Bridgeport; F. Krohne,
the price of Prussia; F. Fber, the Newark
pet; Francis Hart, the dusky hope of Boston;
Edward Williams, the colored reliance of New
York, and many other equally renowned gen
tlmen, will endeavor to walk the belt away
from Nicholas Murphy the handsome Haver
straw handbarrow brick handler. This agony
is to be followed by a series Qf ten races, which

aging most of the theatres and minstrel per
formances in the Unitid States, proposes or

far more advisable to send our egates to
that convention wholly untrammelted, to the
end that their votes may be given to that
eandidate who may prove to bethe strongest
with our friends of the North. If that should
be Gen. Hancock, the nomination would be
given to one who deserves it, and who would
receive the undivided suenoport of the South;
but if on the other hand it should be Senator
Bayard, Thurman, or 8. J. Tilden, our duty
would be to rally to his support."
