BY TEL'EGRAPH FIJO.M jVTjIj POINTS. The Mifliiigiit Dispiitcltos. New Orleaxs. March 5. The Fire men's demonstration yesterday was the finest one we ever witnessed in this city. The ermines were beautifully and taste fully decorated, and the day passed off pleasantly, with the exception ot the ar rest by the military of the band ot jNo. 13 for playing the " Bonnie Blue Flag," and other Southern airs. The steamer Mary Hein, from Shreve- port for this city, was burned on the 28th nit, in Red river, with GOO bales of cot ton. One Federal soldier was lost. The schooner Wood, from Havana, and for New Orleans, put into Cedar Keys, leaking badly, with her center split and spars carried away. She was condemned. Brownsville dates to the 28th ult have been received. Gen. Getty had assumed command of the Rio Grande District, tiee Col. Brown.' Military matters were quiet. Cortinas was about twelve miles above Mntnmoros. on the Mexican side The death of the Liberal chief, Men- dez, from wounds received in taking the Rancho de Fanauita, is confirmed. , An imperial decree has been issued which wpmi to do awar with that which made the Rio Grande porfa free porta of entry, the duties being paid only when the Eoods went into the interior.

FROM WASHINGTON. Passage by the Senate of the House E evo lution Excluding Southern Repreienta-tives-Terms on which They May be Ad mitted laid Down by Wilson, of Maaia chnietts. WasniSGTox, March 2. The Senate to-dny was the seene of a protracted de bate on the House concurrent resolution, relative to the Southern Representatives, which ended ,by the passage of the reso lution by ayes 29, noes 18. The Republican Senators who voted against it with the Democrats were Cowan, Dixon, Doolittle, Lane, of Kan sas, Morgan, Norton and Van Winkle. The resolution as it passed both Houses is as follows being a concurrent resolu tion it does not require the signature of the President : Be it Resolved, By the House of Rep resentatives, the Senate concurring, that in order to close the question which seems likely to disturb the action of the Govern ment, as well as to quiet the uncertainty which isagitatingthemimlsof the people of the eleven Ktntes which have bpen de clared to be in insurrection, no Senator or Representative shall be admitted into either branch of Congress from any of the aid States until Congress shall have de clared such State entitled to such repre sentation. Senator Cowan spoke for two hours against the resolution in a strong con servative strain, fully indorsing the FrMideni and bis rmiiev of rrcuiisiruc- tion, and nrcing upon Congress the im mediate admission f loyal Southern Representatives. Senator Wilson SDoke ao hour against conservatism, declaring that it wai the. cause of the rebellion, and that radical ism was prorrwive, as the experience of the last thirty years had clearly proven. Mr. Fessenden spoke an hour in sup port of the resolution. Mr. an n in tie saia ne tan ve-sirvu s MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, TUESDAY EVENING. MARCH 6-1866. hat negro suffrage was to be a precedent condition before any Southern, State was to be allowed representation in Congress and he, therefore, should rote against this resolution. , " 1 Mr. Feenden replied that he knew of no such condition. , Senator Sherman, rising to personal explanation, relative to Kererdy Rhn son's speech of yesterday, said that Chief Justice Chase never saw the resolutions affirming thei-ight of a State to decide on the constitutionality of a United States law, which were passed at Cleveland in 1859, during the Oberlin excitement. Mr. Sherman added that Justice Chase did speak at the meeting refsrred to, but was not aware that any such resolutions erA Tiftaaed. and that his sDeech. and that of the executive of Ohio, in favor of law and order, was such as to cause dis sent from those who composed the Cleve land meeting. Senator Wilson, during next week, will introduce a joint resolution for the ad mission of the Southern Representatives on the following grounds: . 1st That the States shall give suffrage to such colored people as can read the Constitution, and who have served in the That they shall repudiate the whole rebel debt 3d. That they shall give colored persons all civil rights. The Court Ball at the TuiUeries. Ai some of onr lady readers may like to know how the Empress and American ladies were dressed at the grand carnival ball at the TuiUeries, we copy the follow ing from tie Paris correspondent of the New York World: Americans were not so numerous at court as in former years. Once on a time, when Mr. Mason was Minister here, there were one hundred and thirty of our country folk presented to their Majesties in a batch. Mr. Mason did not eive him self or his imperial host the trouble of naming each person, but just introduced them as !'My countrymen and country women, vour Maiestv." There were twenty-two who paid their respects to the fctnperor and impress on Wednesdayevenini. Mr. and Mrs. Van Renssalaer, Miss Hall, and Mr. and Mrs. John Payne, Miss Dunn,: and Mr., Mrs. and the Misses Edgerton, Miss Helen Mason, Mr. Francis Stout, of New York, Misa Morgan, of London, Mrs. Hurd, Miss Ware, of Philadelphia, Mr. Hines, and Miss McCreery, Miss Gay, of St Louis, Mr. and Mrs. Ord, of San Fran cisco, Mrs. Schliecker, of Baltimore. It may be remarked that there are very few gentlemen on the list, of Americans; there is always a far larger proportion of ladies, while I remarked that of Eu ropeans there were more than double the number of gentlemen than ladies. . The Empress does not look so young as she did a year age ; then, at a short distance, when dressed in one of her ex quisite toilettes, she did not look more than twenty; now, although still very beautiful, aad still retaining the graceful outline of the neck and shoulders, which is one of her peculiar charms, she looks thirty and over, though not forty, which age she attains on her next birth-day. It was remarked that her dress at the ball was, for the first time, too youthful for her. Nothing could excel its elegance and simplicity, apart from the crown diamonds which set it off. The dress was of tulle, of many skirts ; the upper one, as light as gossamer, showed through Us transport folds a trimming of green water grasses, which fell wavily from the seams of an under skirt The corsage was trimmed with a sort of wreath of the same grass, over which hung a fringe of diamonds attached on the left shoulder by a knot of diamonds, and on the right by a long diamond hoop a knot of diamonds fastened her belt in front N. B. No points were worn.J In con trast to the fresh green, her Majesty wore a ribbon of three stripes, the inner one white, the two outer ones of rose color, the decoration of the Order of Civil Merit, lately sent to her by the Emperor Maxi milian as an acknowledgment of her de votion to her people during the cholera. This beautiful toilet was completed by a garland of grasses, attached in front with a diamond star, a necklace of diamonds as large as hickory nuts, and heavy dia mond ear-rings. Apart from the jewels, the dress might have been worn by a girl of sixteen. Her Majesty's taste has heretofore been infallible. She will, in all probability, soon discover that stately silks and satins are most becoming to her. ' " ' .. The American ladies present were dressed in their usual good taste. - The young ladies' toilets were remarkably pretty end tresti. Miss . wore a wnue silk dress, with tulle dounces, and white rotes in her hair. MiRS McC. wore a white tulle dress, trimmed with flowers, and white roses and green leaves in her hair. Mrs. G. wore a similar dress, trim med with pink roses. All the other young ladies were dressed in white tulle, no dress resembling the others, the greatest difference being produced by the variety in the manner ot trimming. Amone the Americans previously pre sented who received invitations to the ball, I observed Mra J. R. ofNew York, with her brothers ; Mrs. V. L t, Mr. and Mrs, B k th, Mr. and Jlrs. Ineodore E s, Mrs. R s, and May, the artist A Magnificent Xelie of the Revolution. We clip the following from the Balti. more Sun, of Saturday: There is now on exhibition nt the jew elry store of Messrs. W.

The top bear iiar usus, vf Lnmta 5 VI, "s-i in a cluster of thirty-four diamonds, whilst the edc is surrounded by :entv-iour diamonds. This valuable relic of the revolution has been ia the family of the dependants of CoL Laurens since the death of that gen tleman, and is now the property of a widowed lady, who having been impov erished by the late robeliion, sends it to Baltimore for cale, in order to procure the necessaries ol life for herself and children. Already wealthy cit'zen has offered $2580 for it, but Mr. Brown is desirous of realizing as much as possible for the unfortunate lady, and it is therefore pos sible it muy be dinpgsed of by raffle, It is a matter of history that on the arrival of CoL Laurens in France. Dr. Frank lin endeavoring to persuade him not to present his petition to the King, but the Colonel was not to be driven from his pur pose, and on the occasion of the first levee he walked directly up to his Ma jesty, and handed him the petition of the American . Congress, remarking that " should the favor asked be denied, or even dvlayed there is cause to fear that the sword which I wear may no longer be drawn in defense of the liberty of my country, but be wielded as a British sub ject against the monarchy of France." The manly address of Col. Laurens had the desired effect, his mission being crowned with success by trance advanc ing the material aid asked for. Pretty Good.

Selecting from a few ex changes at random, one ot our contempo raries lately counted in the Mobile lri bun, of 32 columns, 27 of advertisements; : n ka M.mnhia flnn)fflrna. 37 of ilS 48 lu av.f."w , columns devoted to advertising, and in Craeent. 38 out of 56. The same extraordinary activity in all the South'rn newspapers, ine smaiier towns have each their two or three dai aa ntnninv over with the wants, etc.. i " e , , , of the business community ; and the char acter ot these advertisements is no less suggestive than their number. L fine the luiaineaa columns of the Southern newspapers indicate that the entire material interest of the South is in a transition state, undergoing reconstruc tion. White labor is being introduced ; plantations by the thousands are keening ew owners or tenants ; capital is imper atively needed; and the old manual sys tem of industry is about to be replaced, to considerable extent, by machinery. When the South does become settled; when its rich plantations all find owners or tenants; when white labor and im proved machinery succeed the indolent gangs of negro laborers, the South will develop resources that will astonish the world by their magnitude. Trench and English Surgery.' It is told of the late Sir Astley Cooper, that on visiting Paris, he was asked by the surgeon-in-chief of the Em pire how many times he had performed replied that he performed the operation thirteen times. "Ah, but Monsieur, I have done him one hundred and sixty time. How many time did you save his life V continued the carious Frenchman, after be looked into the blank amatement of Sir Astley's face. " I," said the En glishman, " saved eleven out ef thirteen. How many did yon save out of one hun dred and sixty" V "Ah, Moasienr, I lose dem all, but de operation was very briiliaute." 7 h .EDG INSURANCE. 48,000,000 DOLLARS OP PROPERTY ' i j .
