HT" We had the pleasure of meeting
with Ex-Gov. R. C. WicKtuFK und Dr.
^S amuel C hopfin , of New Orleans, on Sun
day. They were on board the steamer
Gen. Quitman, which «topped at our land
ing on her way down. Both those gen
tlemen seemed to be enjoying fine health.
t-SF"Gen. M aubice G rivot , for many
yearn Adjutant Genera! of this State, ha«
returned to New Orleans after an absence
of nearly three years.
K risadie * G knkkaj . J. G. F onda .—It
»fiords us pleasure to state, that this wor
thy officer and gentleman is to remain in
command of this post, until further orders.
No one could be in command here whose
presence would be more acceptable than
that of General F onda , and our citizens
generally as also tho military who remain
hero, have reason to be satisfied that he is
left in command, and to hope, that as long
as we are to have a military commaader,
he will be retained here by the Govern
ment, if it be agreaable to hi* wishes.
1ST The New Orleans . Star comes oat in
an able editorial favoring the election'of
Gov. W ills at the November election*.
The Governor consents to the use ol his
name in this connection. We have heard
of no opposing candidate, nor do we think
there will be, or that the people of the
State generally desire it. Gov. W »i.i,s hais
made an able and a popular Executive.
£W~ For the past few days we have had
cool, clear and bracing weather, and we
may now reasonably hope for a-continu
ance of the same, during October at least.
It will be conducive to good health and be
apt to enliven matters a little in town and
country, where folks have been feeling
rather dumpish for a month past on ac
count of the inclemency of the weather
and its unfavorable effects upon planting
and commercial interests.
t-«F* Little or no variation has taken
place in the New Orleans market rates
»ince our last.
IS?" Hon. D avid G. B cbnet , who was
the first President of Texas, when that
State was a separate and independent Re
public—arrived in Now Orleans from Gai
veston on TueMay last, accompanied by
l'rof. F orshïv, formerly of this State.
Ex-Presklont B drnjstt is now nearly
eighty years of age and is about to visit
Washington for the humane purpose of
interceding with President J ohnson for
the release of J efferson D avis.
F rkedmer's B urkaus.— We see it stated
that Gen. Howabb, Chief of the Freed
men's Bureau Department at Washington
contemplates making a complete tour of
all the Southern States during the present
month, for tho purpose of ascertaining
whether the new relations between freed
mon and employer can bo sufficiently üb
tablished to admit of curtailing the opera
tions of the Bureau. The F rood rami's
Bureau was designed by Congress to lJ?*a
temporary arrangement to adjust the diffi
culties arising between the freedmen and
their late musters. Under tho new order
of affairs, and when it Bhall be found that
these two classes, work harmoniously to
gether, the necessity for the Bureau will
cease to exist and it will be discontinu**!.
It is understood to be tho desire of the
President that auch an inspection as Gen.
H oward is about entering upon shall be
made to ascertain definitely, the actual
condition of affairs between the freedmen
und employers of the South, which will
determine whether the business shall be
maintained or discontinued.
•Gen. H oward , is now on an official teur
of inspection in Virginia.
tW Gen . C ari, S hürz was on a tour
of observation last week in the Attakapas
region, lie is collecting information in
regard to the condition of the country, the
feelings of the people and such other facts
as may be desired by the authorities at
Washington in regard to affairs in Loui
C oal .—Mr. J. M. P eterson , of No. 164
Gravier street, advertises in the New Or
leans Bee, a reduction of 25 cents per barrel
on his Pittsburg coal, and, proposes hence
forth to deliver in all parts of the eity 5
clean coal,screened for family use,at $1 25
Mr. P eterson is a public benefactor and
deserves success in his business.
There were a few days *inee in
port at New York, about eighty vessels—
many of them regular packets—receiving
cargoes for the South. The New York
Commercial Advertiser says, that the South
ern business now done by leading firm* is
very nearly equal in amount to^hat trans
acted before the war.
The 118th Illinois having been
mtistered out of service, left here yester
day afternoon, homeward bound, ou board
the steamer W, £. Carter,
diversity or crops.
W« have taken occasion to »peak in
former numbers of onr paper of the adapt
ability of our soil and climat» to the
culture of mixed crops, and have urged
tho subject upon the attention of tiur agri
cultural friends, believing it to be in
consonance with sound views and sus
ceptible of practicable and advantage
ous result*. The very questionable ex
pediency of circumscribing the labor
and skill of tho agriculturalist to any one
particular epecies of product is becoming
every day more apparent. The venerable
one-ideaism which absorbs itself year in
and year out in doing service to "King
Cotton," regardless of minor details in the
rast arcana of vegetation, is giving way
before the light* of experience and the
circumstance* of the times which necessi
tate a change in the old routine of thing*.
Independent of the uncertainty of iabor,
there are so many contingencies hazarding
tho safety of cotton in the various stages of
its growth. In this latitude, that planters
have to consider more seriously than ever
tho importance of devoting their attention
to a more promiscuous range of culture.
There ar* many products of the field, the
nursery, and the garden, which cun be
raised in thi* region with comparatively
little labor and with much greater assur
ance of success than cotton, and from the
demand and ready sale which they meet
with in our own and neighboring mar
kets, there could be no fear of an adequate
return of profits for the labor and capital
they would require.
Were it possible to overcome the many
natural drawbacks which attend the culti
vation of cotton, we should by no means
attempt to dissuade planters from bestow
ing upon it that care and attention which
has been so unreservedly extended it. Nor
would we, tinder any circumstance, save
that of total loss, advise a practical aban
donment of the staple. Our aim is now»
as heretofore, to encourage the adoption
among planters of a system of culture
not limited to any one single product in
the main , but to a variety, whereby they
can reap surer profit*, live more within
themselves, and contribute more largely
to the home wants and necessities of the
But for the large outlay required for
machinery, and the absence of a proper
system of hand labor, sugar planting,
would be, from its greater security against,
the casualties ot the seasons, more desira
ble than cotton, and, at prevailing market
prices, equally profitable. A clubbing to
gather on the part of neighborhoods to
purchase the requisite machinery and to
establish mills in common, would obviate
the necessity of any serious expenditure
on that score. The control of labor, Iww
ever, would he ari indispensable pre
requisite in the effectual cultivation of
sugar, as of cotton.
Tobacco, which needs no machinery
whatever, in its manufacture, might 1>*
raised in this latitude to great advantage,
as much so, certainly, as in the New Eng
land States, where, in Connecticut particu
larly, it is made to yield immense profit*
to the producer. We see it stated that
the saving in the matter of revenue in fa
vor of cigars made in this country as com
pared with those manufactured abroad, is
ftijly five per cent, freight on leaf to
bacco, is if 1 49 per on« hundred pounds,
while on cigars, it is *18. In view of
these facts, jobbers can save very largely
by making their purchases at home. Fac
tories of cigar boxes would also prove pro
fitable investments, to meet the demands
for »neb articlos, which would be created
by the cultivation of tobacco on a large
The above hints are thrown out in the
hope that they may lead to such experi
ments and trials among cultivators, as will
enabla them more effectually toreapadvan
tages, which they cannot hope securely to
realize so long as they bend their energies
solely to the production of any one pre
carious staple, under the existing draw

P ower of H dmbijo .—An individual who
owned a small tavern near the field of Wa
terloo, the scene of the last great action of
Napoleon, was frequently questioned as to
whether ho did not possess some relic* of
the battle, and bo has invariably and hon
estly auswered in the negative."
He was ve-y poor, and one day while.la
menting to a neighbor not only his pover
ty but the annoyance to which travelers
subject him, his friend cut him short with:
"Well make one help the other. J/ait
"But what can I do?" inquired the poor
"Tell them that Napoleon or Wellington
entered your shop during the battle and sat
on that chair.
Not long after an English tourist en
tered the tavern, and, inquiring for relics,
was told the chair story. The next comer
was told that Wellington had taken a
drink, and the "Wellington tumbler" was
accordingly aoid. The third arrival gazed
with breathless wonder on the nail on
which Bonaparte had hung his hat. The
fourth purchased the door posts between
which he had entered: and the fifth be
came the happy purchaser of the floor upon
which he had trodden.
At the last advice, the fortunate tavern
keeper had not a roof to cover his head,
and was sitting on a bag of gold in the
centre of a deep pit, formed by selling the
earth upon which the house stood:
