G raphic .—A humorous writer of ths Chicago Pott describes how he got out of a bartsctape in the Police Court, in the fol lowing manner; The next morning the Judge of the Cuort sent for me. 1 went down and he received me cordially. Said he had hoard of the wonderful things I had ac complished at Bryan Hall, and was proud of me. I was ft promising young man, and all that. Then he offered a toaat, "(inilty, or not guilty ?" I responded in a brief but eloquent speech, setting forth the importance of the occasion that brought us together. After the usuä ! csriinocy I loaned the city tea doUus. THE LEGISLATURE. This ia the day fixed for the as sembling of our new Statë Legisla ture. From all we can learn, it will compare favorably in point of talents ând ability with any corps législatif that has ever convened within our borders. We sincerely hope pnd trust, that the members will so act and talk as to entitle each of them, during the progress of their delibera tions as well as at the close of their session, to a well earned meed of ap probation at the hands of their sev eral constituencies, and to the lasting and proud endorsement of "well done, good and faithful servant." We would entreat the members studiously to avoid all useless dis play of oratory or disputation which only tends to embarrass and retard the interests of the State and to make "confusion worse confounded" in the settlement of questions and measures, requiring simply the appliance of sound judgment and common sense, divested of all loose loquacity, to de" cide them. "Too much talk" and very little wisdom, have unfortunately charac terized the proceedings generally of our deliberative assemblies, afid ren dered them a by-word and reproach among the people. Added to this; the reckless and improvident expen diture of the people's money to sub serve political or private ends and even private comforts, (asparticular ly witnessed in the Convention of 1864,) and it is not to be wondered at that legislation has frequently come to be viewed more in the light of a curse to the country, than other wise. Our present legislature is com posed mainly of gentlemen from whom the people have a right to ex pect better things. They are for the most part new men, unaccustomed to the miserably wordy contentions and debates, the demoralizing intrigues and corrupt practices, the shameful abandonment or perversion of honest duty, which of late years have stam ped our legislative bodies with imbe cility and disgrace. Although many of the present members are novices in the ways and business of legisla tion, yet they are possessed gçûçr ally of that integrity, ability and discretion, and proper knowledge of the principles of government, as will prompt them, it is to be hoped, to resolute and faithful efforts, and en able them to discharge honestly and efficiently the high duties devolving upon them. The work that is set before them is plain though of great magnitude and importance, requiring the utmost sagacity and promptitude. The sub ject connected with it, such as the devising of proper measures towards securing for the future, a practical and effective labor system, and the facilitating to their final completion, by vigorous and timely ways and means, the levee works so auspicious ly inaugurated by the Governor» have been so exhaustively discussed by wise and able pens, that appa rently little more remains to be sug gested in the premises. From the abundant data relating to these and other Bubjects, which our legislators will have to draw from in thé pro cess of elimination to suit the public exigencies; and the absence of polit ical divisions to disturb and distract their counsels, the public have reason to hope and expect that they will apply themselves promptly and effici ently to the disposal of all business matters coming before them. Each delegate should feel that he has a reputation to make and maintain for legislative usefulness and probity and that much, very much depends on the policy and action of this Legis lature towards relaying properly the foundations of our State Govern ment, and restoring it once more to its ancient relations of harmony and influence with the General Govern ment. At New York on the 20tb ( Cotton (Middling,) was firm at 53c., and Gold, at 146|. as will our pnd act ap of of THE LEVEES. The award of levee contracts made by the Commissioners on Wednesday says the New Orleans Bet, of the 16th is a practical step towards an emi nently needful public work, the sea sonabie accomplishment of which, we trust, is now assured beyond ordinary peradventure. The Governor unques tionably deserves well of the apprecia tion of our people for the spontaneous and forward action he has taken to ef fect the reconstruction of the ruined levee system of the State in time for the operations of the next cropping season. How this levee system grew up, how it came to acquire a fearful importance in the richest regions of the State, and to constitute one of the most unceasing and urgent solici tudes of our legislation, it is not nec essary here to enquire. Nor would it be well to recall opposing theories and plans for the reclamation and protection of our alluvial lands, or to recite objections heretofore vainly brought against the principle on which the existing plan is based. It is certain that the maintenance of the levees according to that plan is now so thoroughly identified with the agricultural wealth and prosperity of Louisiana, that there is no visible and immediate choice between such a maintenance and almost utter agri cultural ruin. Political restoration would be a sort of mockery to many thousands of our people without this material concomitant. It would be somewhat like giving a starving man cooking implements without a parti cle of provisions. The population in the alluvia] districts would be like a garrison besieged, but without arms or fortifications or means of fortify ing. The Governor intimates, in his call for a meeting of the general Assembly, that it ia one of the objects of this msasure to obtain as soon as possible Legislative assistancein consummating the work he has undertaken, and pushed to its present progress, for se curing timely and efficient levee pro tection. What it will devolve on the Legislature to do in this relation would seem to be quite plain. The financial aspect of the matter is all that need engage in its consideration. There is no time to discuss local de tails or deliberate on diverse projects. The paramouut object will be to guar antee the early completion of the work as already commenced and or ganized by provokiug certain means of paying promptly for it. What the Governor may obtain in the way of informal loans, and what planters may individually subscribe, cannot prove adequate to the purpose. Even if all planters, and all inter ested land ownerB, should subscribe as liberally as their resources would per mit, the result would still be alto gether insufficient. But equal liber ality of subscription from those class es is not to be expected, and nothing but a uniform tax enacted by the Leg islature could prevent a number of subscribers from being overtaxed by the excess of their liberality. In oth. er words, they would have to pay not only for their own part of the work, but also for the part of the more nig. gadrly. A tax would have the effect of equalizing subscriptions. Such a tax would necessarily be prospective, and (o turn it to instant account in raising a levee fund will be a problem which must employ the financial judgment and ingenuity of the Legis lature. Li A in as do. not of O ne of P haraoh's D ahlias. Lord Linsey states that, in the course of his wanderings amid the pyramids of Egypt, he stumbled on a mummy, proved by its hieroglyphics to be at least 2000 years of age. In exam ing the mummy after it was unwrap ped, he found in one of its closed bauds a tuberous or bulbous root. He was interested in the question how long life could last; and he there fore took the tuberous root from the mummy's hand, planted it in a sun ny soil, allowed the rains and dews of heaven to decend upon it, and in course of a few weeks, to his aaton ment and joy, the root burst forth and bloomed into a beautiful dahlia.

As the College has been in successful operation for more than a quarter of a century, and the practical plan here pursued received the unanimous commendations of the Press and business community, aad as several thousand of its former students are now in busi ness in this city aad over the country, it is deemed useless to go into an extended explanation of the plan or merits of the Institution. 80 far aa known, not one of the many thouaanda of former students is now out of employment, and so far as known, not one in a thousand of those who have been sent for years to Europe or the North is qualified on returning borne to enter a business house, although thousands of dollars have been expended on hb education.
