The number of deaths from the prevailing epidemic reported in New Orleans yoatcrday was seventy-live, an increase of nineteen ovor the previous uay. auijiucicim,: js attributed to a sudden ehangcln the weather. K. M. T. lluntor has received from the Pres ident the pardon fur which he applied a few davs since. The "lection of directors of the Lnron Paeifio railroad takes place in New York to-dsy. A Havana letter says a Colonel of the Spaa if h rmvbiubwn placed on trial for abducting a free rtrrro and consigning him to siavsry. A pertonal rencoantar took place Thursday In yuelice between two noted politicians. Mr, Dov in abused Mr. McOoe and spat in his face, whereupon McGee cxned him. The affair was caused by a threat of McGee to disclose 'acta in the professional career of his antagonist. . A Washington dispatch says Kdward Cooper, defeated for Congress in Tennessee, is to be appointed the President's private secretary, the position he formerly held. XJU From the Radical having failed to secure an effective majority in the re cent eirction in Louisiana, and, proba bly, also, in Alabama, it by no reeans nec'fs?ari!y follows that on effort to forcibly and fraudulently enrry said election was not made. When it is seen by the census of 18C0 that Louisiana had within her borders not exceeding 70,000 black males above the age of twenty-one years, and that her registration returns exhibit ?2,8G5 negro voter, it quite cease" to be a matter of surprise that the returns of her late election do not ap proximate the registration figures. There is every reason to suspect fraud and un lawful procedure throuzhout the State, from the opening of the registration to the closing of the polls, and innumera ble facts are adducable to confirm the nu prehension. The treacherous memories of the negroes at the polls', in their ina bility to recollect the names by which they registered, is, to say the least, an intima tion that some of the " new sovereigns " may, possibly, have registered under more than one name. Their failing memories may have been overburdened with patronymics, and bewildered in a cognnmenous mist. To recollect his real name we cannot think would puzzle the brain of the most stupid and tliitkest iknlled of the race, while to call at will to memory the election nom de plume, put in his mouth by the aspirant for his ballot, would be quite another matter, and might, we dare say, be at tended with greater difficulty. That inndreda and perhaps thousands under age were permitted to vote in both States there is every reason for believ -ing. Little challenging, if any, was done anywhere, and, as white men held themselves aloof, the " purity of the ballot-box " was a matter solely intrusted to those anxious and, du ply interested in seeing the vote sw piled to as large numbers as possible. Eow all this must necessarily Lave operated can very well be imaziued by these who were witnesses to the late farce of a Bimilur character in Tennessee, which was limited in its duration to a single day. Truly, when thec facts ire considered the ui. scrupulous au l determined effort to foist, hy force and fraul aa obnox ious form of government opon resK'.less and powerless communit'ie of white knd intelligent m"n (V'nsrvativs in Tunisians. Alabama, and wherever li- ral and magnanimous views trevail, may rj.iice and lake cl.ei r at the $oeid ing'y miraculous averlauce of a calam ity so great and but ren n'.ly o t!.r M-ruing. A TWO-FOLD GOOD. Memphis, preoccupied with ill com mercial distriiinl upon her cupilul and effort, has, during thu year just passod, permitted her railroad energies to sleep only to sleep, and not to be paralyzed, at a friend at onr elbow suggests. The Little Hock railroad has dragged its alow length along, weighted to a damaging ex tent by the incubus foisted upon it by Fremont and lisrand project of El Pao notoriety. That has, however, passed away into bankruptcy, and fittinly, too, in the very city New York where it was conceived, and was born, it was said, amid much jingling of specie and loud, loud promises, and baptised with high sounding title. All that has been " used up," and the nursling of so much pro mise has been gobbled by that giant with awful appetite for failure the Commis sioner of Bankruptcy. That has all passed away, leaving the fathers of a more reasonable project and a more modestly named pet to indulge their fancy, and push to what, for Memphis will prove for the present a more solid conclusion. Tha Littlo Rock rarlroad will be rapidly, as the means at hand will permit, finished, and so bringing our city nearer a broad extent of country hose people are our kindred in sympathy 8nd desire to aid us. And better still, tho Memphis and St. Louis road, so littlo spoken of lately, is immediately to be commenced and pushed rapidly to com pletion, levying a large and productive section of alluvial land, which will thus be brought into usa ; a now almost inv nenetrable swamp be reduced to tho sway of man and brought into subjection to the kindly influences of high culture. The Memphis and St. Louis railroad s no longer the myth that for so many rears men uavo tamea aoonu it has actually and in fact, been initiated, The contrucls for grading have been "let," and a few days at farthest will find the hardy laborers at work with pick and spade, throwing up a roadway for the iron horse, and at the snmo time levy for tho reclamation and ultimate protection of thousands of acres of land now lost to use. Quietly indeed, but none the less quickly and energetically, Col. Porter lifts prosecuted his work, and n the face of daring opposition from the friends of the Fulton and Cairo railroad, and the friends of the Helena branch, nd at las: has the satisfaction of wit nessing a commencement of a scheme of ucb merit and to be the source of bundant good for Memphis. Commencing nearly opposite this city, making a curve at a point half way from Mound City and Marion, the Memphis nd St Louis railroad leaving Oldham on the right will intersect a lake and avoiding the deep elbow of the Missis- ppi above Cat Island, mako almost a straight line to the Iron Mountain. Looking at tho map, the reader can form no adequate idea of the number of acres thus to be rescued from overflow. It is an already well settled fact, and one that has time and again been urged as showing the inexpediency of levying as far down as Memjus or below, that nearly all the overflow that occurs comes from above; and thatx this overflow, paesing-into the St. Francis river and its hundred little and big tributaries, gorges their channels, and in time is thrown back upon the low lunda whence it was drained, there to remaiu until the Mississippi below falls sufficiently to raw upon its southern tributaries for sustenance, limes out ot number trie States above, as on the Mississippi and below Cairo, have been cal!cd upon to levy ; but not convinced that they could erive any immediate advantage there from, they have been slow to respond, nd, responding, have done their work n so slovenly a manner as not to afford the relief desired by their more southerly hbors. The " National " (aa it has ome to ho called) Government has been petitioned; but Its attention being ex- usively given to North and - north western improvements, we have little to look for or hope for from that quarter, unless indeed it be proven that levying is necessary for the immediate benefit of the negro. What States have failed in, and the " noylional '.' folks won't "hear to," the Memphis and St. Louis Railroad Cam- will give to the owners of and pany squatters upon the now swamp lands of Crittenden, Mississippi, Greene, Craig head and other counties of Arkansas protection against the fluodj that threaten and so often destroy the results of t'eir labor; and that, too, at the sirae time that they bridge, by a good railroal, the country through which this grand levee will pa; les.sei.inz the distince, and making tributary lu u a people whosa interests are now and have been com pelled in other channels by season of the difficulties of intercenrnunieation that have intervened between It is s'jmethinjj to have thii3 much of improvement to chronicle, especially in these days of despondency and political gloom. It is an iplmtion almost; at least it is . an encouragement, reding upon which we may take freh hrait and hope that all energy is not dead, and that there, is "life in the oi l land yet." congratulate Calonid Porter and his coadjutors, end hope for them pro pitious weather and help sufficient for an early fiuiji of the road. The Cincinnati Cummercial baa a correspondent in this city, who, what ever may be his otlur acquirements, is evidently but poorly p:siH as regards the corisii'utional law of Tcnne.iee. In a letter of recent dale he writes that pa per as follows : Tennessee, is nut only a nrgro State, but must remain as it is, sub ject to negro d -mi'ialion,. until a new Constitution is framed. A Convention can ii'it be callod tor th purpose of re tnodoiire the con-l I'll ion without the aMTt of the IHis'ft'ure, and this can not now be ccrd. l'.rownlow and oro nif;..tent extreme's w ll never const-M to the c'-nvorst.on of th tns,s of 1 en ness t-at.s fur ti e jurjse ot reforming a code which iuny i " ,,i,B equal rights. For the butler information of the au thor of thil bit of fallacy, and others who may, with him, be perplexed with doubt upon the subject, we reproduce so mut of the organio law of Jennessce touches the authority of the peoplo, in dependent of the Legislature, to call .n...,imn xiul in that convention modify, change, amend or abolish the form of government, as their judgments may dictate. Article one, section on of the Declaration of Rights reads Tki .11 nnurar ! inherent in the peo ple, and all free government are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety and happiness ; for the advancement ot tnese enas mrjr um, at all timet, an inalienable ana inae b..;hli rlirht tn alter, reform, or abolisl the government in sih manner as they mar think proper. ' The eleventh article aud twelfth sec tion of the Constitution further says : The declaration of rights hereto pre fixed ia declared to be a part of the Con stitution of this State, and shall never be violated on any pretense whatever. And to guard against transgression of the biph nnwnra wa have dolegated, we declare that everything in the bill of rights contained is excepted out or tne general poweig-ot government, ana sou forever remain inviolate. We might pause here, as no comment or elucidation could possibly render moro clear or unmistakable the purport and spirit of the law clothed in the lancuace Quoted. We bclicvo we have discovered, however, the basis on which tho Commtrciat correspondent and others with him havo rested an impres sion of the necossity of the . assent of the Legislature in the calling of a convention to reshape or reform the organic law. Article eleven, and section three of the Constitu tion, provides that "Any amendment, or amendments to this Constitution may be proposed in the Sonata or House of Representatives," and such amendments being proposed, it further provides how and under what forms they shall he made. But how this provision can in any manner affect tho right of the people at all times to alter, reform or abolish the Government, ' we cannot discover any where ia the context. The right of the Legislature as expressed in the pro vision, that they "may propose, etc.," ia simply tub modo and permissive, while that of the people on the other band is, by the very language of the section, ab solute, and indefeasible. After having pointed out these clauses in the instru ment, we feel assured a doubt can no onger exist in the mind of any one as to the right of the people to call a con vention and therein modify the organio aw of Tennessee, bo as to " give all white men equal rights" and that too without the assent of the Legislature." We again suggest the calling of such a convention, believing -no constitutional obstacle or hindrance exists to its assem bling, and that it would not only not be revolutionary, but in strictest conformity to organic law and to the cardinal prin ciples upon which the Government is bused. Kji. Some idea of the manner in which the courts in the Fifth Military District are being run may be formed from the following, which comes in the shape of a telegraph dupatcb from New Orleans to the morning press : Jadce Abell, counsel for Ilenry Smith, accused of perjury, filed an exception yesterday. The case is being tried before assistant-Recorder Dunn, of the Second District Court. Dunn is a negro, lately elected by the new Council. Judge Abell, n bis exception, sets forth that Uunn being a negro, not recognized by the laws of Louisiana as a citizen, is not legally an officer. Dunn overruled this excep tion, tried the case, and discharged the prisoner. Ihe prosecuting witness re fused to take the stand or be sworn. The negro acting Recorder asked him if he intended to insult the ennrt. He replied he did, and was fined $25. BY TELEGRAPH. Lsitent to Noon To-Day. XEW YOIIK. Oold and Cotton Report!.

NEW YOIIK. Rumon from Washington of Cabi net Cbangos Consular Resigna tion. Nkw York, October 6. A special to the Pott from Washington says rumors of Cahinent changes are current, whether thore is any truth in them or not. It is known at least that one officer of the Cabinet Gen. Grant anticipates being relieved from the duties of his position as Secretary of War at no distant day. A prominent official of the War Depart ment stated to-day that the General has held himself in readiness for a week past to surrender his portfolio to whom soever might be nppointed to succeed him. Colonel Henry, American Consul at Quebec, Canada, has tendered his resig nation, to take effect immediately. A Wall street rumor says that tho Presidont is determined to call General Sherman to the Wnr Department. Affairi In Italy Garibaldi a Priso ner in bis Own House The American Excniaioniata in Egypt Sir Frederick Bruce's Snooes or to be Appointed English Markets. London, October 4. The following paaticulars of the recent movements of Gen. Garibaldi have been received from Italy : While in a passion at Alexandria, Garibaldi persistently refused to give his parole not to engage in any hostile enter prise ugainst tho papal States. Mean while the Italian government, hoping to liny the excitement which was caused by is arrest, gave orders for the transfer of the prisoner to his home at Cdprera, with out insisting upon a parole. The Goneral was accordingly taken to the island, here he was apparently set at liberty. Soon after his arrival he suddenly disap peared from the island, andsucceededn reaching the main land ; bnt his move ments had been carefully watched, and e was again arrested and sent back to aprera, where he now remains, under guard a prisoner lu his own home. London, October 4. A dispatch Irom Alexandria, Egypt, announces the ar- val of the steamer Quaker City, with the American excursion party on board all well.
