G auiinkr & Co., Newspaper Advertising Agents, No. 5, Commercial Place, New Orleans, are the duly authorized Agents in that city for the Gazette and Cornet. The Public Meeting Last Saturday. The meeting in our city on Saturday " wrb a success in point of numbers and the spirit which tempered its proceedings as a conservative body. There was no call for any special action on national or domestic politics, farther than to manifest an ap probation and appreciation of the course marked out by President J ohnson for Iiis own and the people's guidance, respecting a restoration to the latter ef their civil rights under civil forms ot government. The fhain object of the meeting, which ■was to nominate delegates to attend a State Conservative Convention in New Orleans next month, was satisfactory accomplished. There was only one speech made on the occasion—the only one called for—the only one that wa* nocessary—as it took in the whole scope and aim of the mealing in an earnest, concise and lucid form. It was just such an address as might have been expected from the honest-minded and tal ented gentleman from whom it came, J O. F uqua , Esq. Iiis eloquent, heartfelt tri bute to the honored dead who fell in the late war; his sensible and judicious appeals to his fellow-citizens to stand by the prin ciples and policy hitherto enunciated by the President of the Nation and repeated more recently in his address to certain Southerners at Washington, and to lultill faithfully the duties and obligations which each owes to the General Govern nient, 1111 ~ der thoconstitution and the laws; hisexcel lentcounseling» thatevory oneshonld make common cause in, and lend t.hcir united efforts to the work of, civil re-organization, prudently avoiding all premature issues and discarding politics for mere partisan purposes, as calculated only to stir up strife and bitter feelings—all these wore listened to with profound attention and elicited merited approbation and satisfaction. The proceedings of the meeting, embra cing the names of its officers and its dele gates to the State Coiivontion,may bo seen in another column. E5ÈT" Cotton (middling) closed in New York on the 15th, at 45)£e. Gold, 142)*. The Republicans are said to have carried the State of Maine. t£t~ K etchtjm and J enkins , the New York swindlers, were both arraigned on the 14th, and plead not guilty. Their trials have been postponed until the next term of court. I32P" It is stated that instructions are to bo immediately issued for the mustering out of service of all colored troops raised in the Northern States, and who are now serving in the States of North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. jy Good milch cows are sold in Hous ton, Texas, says the Telegraph, at from $10 to $1T> apiece. The Mobile Tribune says they are from $50 to $150 in that city. Tho price hereabouts varies from $25 to $35. Ijff- The Iberville South, of Plaquemine, aunounces the re-opening of the "Convent of the Holy Cross" in that town; aUo the expected re-establishment in a few days of tho Plaquemine Post-oflice. Tho same paper says the Police Jury of that parish have, with entire unanimity, passed an ordinance directing the closing of Bayou Plaquemine. ü-*F"The quotations for Cotton in New Orleans, on Saturday, ran as follows : Or dinary, 88@35Ci; Good Ordinary, 38@40; Low Middling, 41@43; Middling, 44<&45. The outside figures for the grades below Middling aro for strict classifications. The market for Western Produce was dull. Suparline Flour was sold at $8 70@ $S 75; and Low Extra, at $10 25 $ bbl. The Gold market was somewhat de pressed at 141@145. jtaJ"" Liverpool dates to the 2d instant, have been received in New York. At that time tho cotton market was reported firm both at Liverpool and Manchester. Sales of 15,000 bales were made ou the 2d iu Liverpool, of which speculators and expor ters took 6,000. Middliug was quoted at J8^d., the market closing buoyant. Î^T" Gen. Canby has generously re sponded to the appeal of the Police Jury of Avoyelles in behalf of the suflering and destitute families and persons constituting at least one-third of the population oi that paruh. In his letter to the Police Jury conveyed through Gov. Wölls, the General ssays : "You are desired, without delay, to for ward to those headquarters as exact an ■estimate as possible, of the number oi per son» in such need of help Please designate certain points, conve nient for'depots and centres of distribu tion, and certain energetic, humane and trusty individuals, at or near such points, for distribaUpg agents." ICE. This almost indispensable gummer ne cessity has been held at exhorbitant rates this season, making it, instead of a cheap necessity as it should be, a very expensive luxury. At one time during the hottest part of the " heated term," it became a very scarce article in New Orleans, but a num ber of vessels arrived with cargoes of it to supply the market, without creating, how ever, any visible reduction in the price; all of which was, and is, owing to an odious monopoly, existing in New Orleans, in this as in other articles, stich' as West Indiaand other kinds of fruit, &c., and which tends so unjustly to, keep up extortionate rates there as well as in places dependent on that city 'for supplies. The New Orleans Times has been suc cessfully com bating the beef monopoly down there, and now suggests a joint stock anti-monopoly ice company, for ita city, similar to the One organized of late in the city of New York, and described in the annexed paragraph lYom the Timet: "An anti-monopoly ice company has been or ganised in New York 10 protect the citizens against the combinations and impositions of ice dealer«. The organiiation is a joint stock one, the capital, divided into 100,000 shares at $f> each. Parties wbo subscribe for the stock will be entitled to receive their supply of ice in each succeedlSj '»eSutoD, at the actual cost of and de livery, as follows, viz: one shire will entitle the holder to receive tau pounds per day, two shares will entitle the holder to receive twenty-five pounds per day, four shares will entitle the bold to receive fifty pounds per day.six shares will en title the holder to receive one hundred pounds per day, ten share rill entitle the holder to re iy, ceive flvo hundred pounds porday, fitteen share« will untitle the holder to receive on» thousand pounds per day, twenty shares will entitle the holder to receive one ton per day, and one ton for every additional twenty share. The good effects of such un organization «re already uiaitjlest. To illustrate the benefits offered 1>y this company, says the 'Vinife, it is only necessary to say that the monopolies nuw propose to charge those who wish ten pounds of ice per day one hall cent per pound; this amountsto$lS 25 per year. The cost of ice is not more than ne fourth of a usnt per pound;-thus sub cribors to the stock of this company will save $0 18 per annum on ar. investment t $.s. From this we turn to tho consideration fan enlarged enterprise in contemplation by Messrs. H aitsi-kr, L abakrk & Co., the wners of the ice manufactory in New Or Orleans, so as to meet to a tar greater ex tent the demands made upon them lor the glacial product. Those gentlemen pro pose a transfer of their enterprise to a stock uipAiy with a capital of $ 1 ,(JKlQ,0i«), dl dided into 20,000 shares of $50 each. By h an arrangement they expect to be enabled to erect buildings for factories, ice storage, «fee., and to procure twelve ma chines capable of turning out ten tons of ice a day, each; the ice to he furnished at the rate of 1 }£c. per pound. The country population cannot but feel a lively interest in the success of such a scheme, which would redound so greatly to their own comforts and necessities. Ice, this season, has been held at figures beyond the reach of many, at least in so far as they were able to afford more than an occasional indulgence in the commodity. By next season, we trnst, there will be such an abundance of it, and sold at such reasonable prices, as to render it available to all. [Fron the Richmond Commercial Bulletin ] DeBow's Kcvieu. We have received the following letter from Mr. DeBow, which is intended as an answer to statements made by Northern papers in regard to the resumption of his periodical, so well kndwn as the Review. We had also the pleasure of seeing the gen tleman himself since the letter was written, he being then on lus way to Washington upon business connected with the re-estab lishment of the Review : v W innsboro ', S. 0-, Aug. 14,1865. Editor s Bulletin —A statement has been copied from one of the Northern newspa pers, into several at the South, to the ef fect that I was about to resume the publi cation of my Review "upon the basis of free labor." It is my wish and intention to resume the publication of the Review at some peint which shall be regarded most eligible, if I can control the means and machinery to do so, and I very clearly perceive what should be the mission of the work. Begarding the issues of the past as dead, abtrat which a practical philosophy will not dispute, and those of tho present as living and potential, it would be the part of the Review to accept the situation, and deduce I'rom it all that can be promotive of the best interests of the whole country. Within the wide range of discussion which the future will open, there is surely a field for labor. Tho restoration of social and political order throughout the South —there-establishment of its agricultural, manufacturing and commercial industry, prostrated by the war, the re-opening of its internal communications, the relations which its several classes of population shall sustain to each other and the mode in which they shall co-operate for the best interests of each and for the public weal — the establishment of schools and colleges —these are the landmarks ! Esch State and community will look-to and be aided by the experiences of others, and hence the importance of an organ for auch information; and we may assuredly look very closely into what has been done by other countries similarly situated with regard to slavery and emancipation, adopt ing what was wise and rejecting the rest, in their action. I do not despair of a high degree of prosperity in the future throughout the boundless fields of the South, and if our people will take hold with a brave heart and noble purpose, in a few years ail traces of the roceut calamitous times, will he erased. If we are met iu the same spirit, which I have no doubt will be the case by the people of the North, the nation will advance in a career of greatness, for which history has no parallel, and be moved by one heart, on.« spirit and om high and gen erous impulse. Your ob't serv't, J.I). B. D e B ow. Thomas Jefferson denied the power of one generation to bind another by a public debt. His opinion was that a debt could not be contracted to extend beyond the life of the generation that incurred it. [Communicated. Mil Dear Cornet—Ex cuse me. I had a dream last night, which, because of its strangeness, I think ought to go down to posterity, in your immaculate and mortal newspaper. Allow me to give it nakedly as It appeared in its outline, and you and your sensitive and imaginative readers may put on the drapery. I remember» before falling asleep, to have had my mind running on the folly of this life, with all its whimsical vanity, and Mr. Thomas Carlyle's picture of the world without clothes appeared to me. After all, what is the difference between men and women, when stripped of their tinsel and outside trimmings ? I remember once myself to have fallen desperately in love with a rod flannel jacket, and wept my eyes dry over a prunella shoe, worn by a sweet little angel, who went tripping away from us to the spirit land on a May morning. Bodily what are we alter all but earth and ashes ? "Imperious Csosar, dead, and turn'd to olay, Might stop a hole to keep the wind away : O, that the earth which kept the world in awe, Should patch a wall to expel the winter's flaw !" From a naked world with all its hollow pomp and circumstance, my mind wan. dered off on the instability of all the brightest and best things of life, and fall ing asleep, 1 heard an explosion which threw me into the planet Vesta, then in close proximity to earth. 1 rubbed my eyes and looked. down to find my worst fears realized. The magazine behind the old grave-yard had blown up and all tho villainous equipments of death and en gines of destruction were being tossed about as chaff in the wind, or feathers in the' air. 1 heard a voice whisper, "There, now, what a loss of money! 1 ' "How many greenbacks will it cost this trans ceadentally virtuous and magnanimous government to replace these things ?" There was a hollow echo to the questions, and then a cynical laugh which sounded to me very like the devil's. Presently I descried mid air a naked fat man coming up heels foremost, and when I recognized my friend of — street, I asked him po litely if he was going to heaven in that way. He cither did not hear me, or paid no attention, for his oyes were riveted on his loft hand in which he grasped money enough to line a coffin. I learned pres ently of a riva! speculator who came up with only one leg in his breeches, the fat mau was B. J., and at the time of tho ex plosion he was about paying for one hun dred bales just delivered to Payne, arid bad he been permitted one hour more he would have transmuted his paper into yellow eagles. I looked round and saw the bales coming aflur him, and then a very lean and anxious looking gentleman who with his moutli open, seemed to bo swearing at his fate and damning the magazine for not giving him an hour's start of B. J., to enable him to reach the gates of heaven first and take out an in junction and a stay of proceedings. Sin gular thought, but it occurred to me just then. "What will they do with tho long staple there ?" "Will there be a Collector of Internal Revenue to demand the income tax, and in default confiscate it to his own use ?" Is Poter down in the list of col lectors, and does he take legal tenders for all due6 to his government except im ports?" There was no one on that horn of the planet upon which I was sitting to answer these question^; indeed, I found the queries wero of my own mind, and whilst I was indulging in them, tho ele gant came up without hoops, and in the smoke and confusion she had lost her chaste, new-fashioned bonnet, with the fl»wer-garden on top, to which she was indebted for the laigest half of her beauty. Others passed me I did not re cognize; among them, however, I dis covered a handsome officer of your ac quaintance who had just been advanced on the line of promotion, but blown up and dead as a mackerel, before his friends could be made acquainted i®th the fact—what a pity ! , My deaf, dear Coinet, I only wish that you could have been with me to have seen some of your Christian friends, who were taken without "preparation" as they call it; thrown up without any idols and minus their baggage. But enough is quantum xujficit, let all pass, until it is a reality. Ctntha. î-sf" The Boston JJerald, which is a shrewd Observer of public affairs and the tendency of publicmind,says"evcrywhere in Ohio and Pennsylvania, and through out the country, the war Democracy and the Conservative Republicans are deserting the radicals, and they will go down. A new party will be raised up, which will take tho place of the old parties, and re Store the nation to peace and to an eco nomical administration ofits affairs. This revolution is now going on throughout the country, and will soon be heard thunder ing along the political horrizon, startling the old fogies irom their slumber and fan cied security, and awakening them to their desolate and forlorn condition. Nothing can save them from tho coming storm. They will be swept away by the whirlwind which will sweep over the land, scattering thorn in every direction, and making ship wrecb.of all they have. Every man should see to it that ho does not attempt to thwart the designs ol' the people in their fury at those who have been instrumental in pro ducing the misery whicn is to come on the poor in due time. Let them take warning in time, or it will bo too late for them to get on board the ark of safety. Thus it is written and thus it will be as sure as the sun continues to rise and set. It is as ine vitable «»anything can he, and he who does not see it is politically blind. The Southern leaders in the rebellion have gone under; so will their allies in the free States. Agitators, North and South, have had their day and will now be tinder the disagreeable necessity of taking a back seat, ■where they can see just as well and appear to ranch better advantage. The hand writing is on the wall, but the ultras are so stupid as not to see it, and will be swal jOwcl up and destroyed." T he K avasis«* W ak .—In speaking of the small vote ofVicksbnrg, Miss.,in com parison with what it used to cast, the Vicksburg Journal , of the 12th, said : "The loss of population by the war has been very heavy. From twenty-four to twenty-eight companies have been sent to the war—including three companies of cavalry and three of" artillery. But few, comparatively, of all these men have re turned. "We give the lossesin a few companies, as reported to us by an old resident of the city: The vVicksburg Cadets went out one hundred and twenty-three strong, return ed, six. The 'Vicksburg Sharpshooters' went out one hundred and twenty-four strong; returned,seven. These'unretarn ing brave' lie sleeping beneath the soil of every Southern State." Parish Meeting.
