Tho proceeding« of this body np to yaa terday, outside of it* organization, have for the most part been unimportant, a die position being shown on tba part of the members present to await a fuller repre sentation from the country, before going into the transaction of much busineea. The following are the names of the pre siding officers, clerks, <ftc., of the two Houses, who were chosen to fill the re sptctive places assigned them : S ïnatk.— V. Burthe, President; Henry B. Kelly, Secretary; Oscar Arroyo, Assist ant Secretary; Berlin Childress, Serge ant at- Arms; F. M. Young, Warrant Clerk. H oubk. —S. P. Delabarre, Speaker, (pro Um.) G Sheppard, Clerk, (pro tem.) J£. R Easton, Assistant Clerk, ( pro tem.) Sorna three memorial» from newly elected Senators contesting the aaats of members holding ovar from the Legisla ture of 1864, war* read before the Senate on Monday and referred to the Judiciary Committes. The contestants are John Nelson, of Lafourche; S. O. Scruggs, of Sabine, and David N. Barrow, of West Baton Rouge. Mr. Palfrey, of St. Mary, gave notice on Monday that he would, at a future day not remote, introduce a bill, having for its objoct to modify and amend existing laws in relation to tacit mortgages. Mr. Munday, of East Feliciana, gave no tice that he would introduce at a future day tho following bills : An Aot to exempt the homestead of householders from seizure and sale, nndar execution, and also to exempt from execu tion, from seizure for rent and garnish ment, certain personal property and effects, wages of labor, compensation for pro fe«»ional and other services. An Act to provide for the regulation of the labçr and care of freedmen and wo men and their children, in the State of Louisiana. An Act to provide for and regulate the sale of property at forced sales, under an order of seizure and sale at fieri facia*. Terrible Steamboat Accident. Wq learn that the steamer Niagara, upward bound, when a few miles above Helena, Ark., on Monday night lait, was run into by the steamer Post Boy, deoending, and was sunk it a few min* utes, causing the loss of about one hundred arid fifty colored troops. A dense fog was prevailing at the time of the collision. This reckless manner of running boats during foggy weather is perfect ly inexcusable and the parties permit ting it ought to be visited with the ieverest punishment. We hope the guilty in this case will be ferreted out and the parties implicated be made to answer severely for it. Which is Right ?—One report bas it that John Mitchell is to be the editor of the Fenian journal they speak of establishing in New York City. Another report says he has gone to Paris and will act as foreign correspondent of the New York Daily Newt ; and that his pardon by the President was granted on condition of expatriation. «apThe St. Louis Republican, a journal of previous mammoth dimen* «ion, has been enlarged by the addi tion of one column to each of its pages. The Republican is a grand paper in •very respeet. Education of the Deaf Mutes ok Mississippi .—Pursuant to an Act of the Mississippi State Legislature, the Trustees of the Deaf and Dumb Institute at Jackson Lave made an arrangement whereby the Deaf and Dumb of Mississippi can be entered and educated at the Louisiana Insti tute for the Deaf and Dumb and the Blind in this city. The State of Mississippi has pro vided the funds necessary for this special purpose, and the parents and friends of the mute children of that State are united by official notifiea< tioa of A. B. C abiniss , Esq., the President of the Board of Trustees, /to send «aid children to the Institute at Baton Bouge, where they will be carefully nurtured and educated at £he expense of said St«fe. THE LABOR QUESTION. This is the paramount question of the hour. It is of such vital mo ment to the future welfare and pros perity of the South, that all other public questions seem attracted to it and engrossed in it as by magnetic force. The season is fast approach ing when the wide and fertile do mains of the South must have some well settled system of labor, if we expect to see anything like a full re development of Southern agricultur al resources, and a return of that swelling tide of commercial and me chanical prosperity which would follow as certainly as effect follows cause. Whatever of wisdom and states manship there may be in our present Legislature, there will be need of it all in the careful and judicious treat ment of this question, to the end that its solution may inure to the lasting and practical good of the producing and industrial classes, and as a consequence, to that of our com munities generally. Relevant to this question and one of its principal features, will be the organization of native and immi grant labor on a basis promotive of harmony and mutual interests and adapted to the requirements of the parties who are to employ them. In the French West India Islands it has been ascertained from experience, that Coolie and native colored labor ers work very well together, and in Martinique, particularly, where the system of cultivating the land in shares is carried on between the planters and the laborers, the result has proved very satisfactory and en couraging. The laborers having a certain share of the products or pro fits of the plantations guaranteed to them, are prompted naturally to de vote themselves more assiduously to their work, than when they are sim ply hired. We cannot see why such a plan would not answer as well, in numerous instances, at least, in the Southern States. There are many intelligent negroes scattered over the country, whose labor under such an arrangement might be advantage ously secured, but which could not likely be secured otherwise, so long as chances are presented to them for engaging in such other pursuits aB they may fancy or by which they think they can realize more than by hiring themselves out for farm-work. These are suggestions worth con sidering by the planters. If labor ers, by having a share in the crop secured to them, can be stimulated to do their work with constancy and fidelity, and thereby succeed in turn ing out full crops, would that not be more profitable than the idle, negli gent and uncertain manner in which they do their work under the hiring system ? It would certainly be far preferable as tending to relieve the planter or manager of great troubles and embarrassments and of conse quent Advice of Gen. Lee.— •• It should be the object of all to avoid contro versy, to allay passion, give free scope to reason and every kindly feeling. By doing this, and encour aging our citizens to engage in the duties of life with all their heart and mind, with a determination not to be turned aside by thoughts of the past or fears of the future, our country will not only be restored in material prosperity but will be advanced in science, in virtue, and in religion." IÜS* A typefounder in Edinburgh, Scotland, advertises patent mechanic al quoin« for looking up forms, which dispense with wooden side and foot Bticks, mallet and shooter, and quoins The means of locking up is so power ful, it is said, that it is accomplished without any greater effort than is re quired for opening or shutting a good lock, and it acts with perfect regulari ty. This useful invention consists of a quoin in tempered metal, which is provided with teeth, and the llU'e ap paratus is completed by a cog with corresponding teeth, which, is turned by a key, This locking up apparatus is manufactured with tempered metal, and no article in the printing office wili outlast it. They are very gener ally used for every class of work, and are a great desderaturn from their economy, security and durability. TELEGRAPHIC. New York markets.

The Strength of Love .—Mer cer's Hall stands upon a most inter esting site. Here was the house of Gilbert Becket, a yeoman, who, whilst following his lord to the Holy Land during the Crusades, was taken prisoner by a Saracen emir, and con fined in a dungeon. The emir had a daughter, who saw and pitied the captive. Pity in this instance proved akin to love and under the influence of these feelings she contrived to set him free. Gilbert returned to Eng land, leaving his benefactress behind pining in sorrow for his loss, which at last grew so insupportable that she determined to seek him through the world. She went to the nearest point, and embarked on the sea, the words, "London"and "Gilbert" be ing all the direction she had to guide her. The first sufficed to guide her to the English capital ; but when there she could only wander from street to street, repeating with touch ing pathos the other—" Gilbert ! Gil bert ! " How the fond and single hearted girl succeeded in finding Gil bert the story sayeth not; but she did find him, and was rewarded for all her troubles and obtained the fruition of all her hopes. The yeo man welcomed her with tears of joy, had her immediately baptized, and was uuited in marriage. The son of the fair pagan and the yeoman was the far-famed Thomas a Becket.— Old England. Singular Obituary .—The Atlan ta (Ga.) Messenger gives the follow ing odd notice of a deceased citizen of that place : "He was the father of eieren sons, five of whom married five «isters. He had one hundred and eighty-nine grandchildren ; and at his funeral, two weeks ago last Sabbath, two horses were stung to death by bees and another came near losing his life by the same. GRAND JURY REPORT. To the Hon. Jvdge Potey of the Fifth Dit trict Court, I'atith of Eatt Baton Jiouqe : The Grand Jury for the November term, 1865, respectfully report : That having finished the business laid before them by the District Attorney, they proceeded to view the public buildings, and first, thk court house. This building needs immediate slight re pair» in order to prevent further injury, requiring increased expense, viz : The roof near the eveB being defective allows the water to penetrate to the walls and ceiling, which destroys the plastering. The porches on the North and South side require repairs, and tbe fence around the grounds having been removed, a new fence becomes necessary ; second, the jail. This buildinglrequires considerable re pairs, viz : The gutters leading the water from tho roof are so imperfect as to be use less. The cistern is worn out. Many of the doors and window sashes and locks require to be removed and replaced with new ones, and blankets are wanted. We found the condition of the prisoner« good, considering their crowded state. The health is good. There is no regular physician in attendance at the Jail. Most of the criminal business before us wa* owing to the disorganised condition of the colored laborers who have congregated in the City of Baton Rouge in such num bers as to become a source of evil, requi ring prompt and energetic measures, to ward improvement, on the part of tho pro per authorities. The men being lazy and thriftless, resort to stealing to support themselves, while the prostitution and idleness of the women necessarily produce disease and crime. The numerous little shanties erected in the suburbs ot the city, in proximity to fences, to stab'es and other buildings, en danger the destruction of portions of the city by fire, while the miserable condition of the shanties— want of ventilation and the crowded and filthy condition of the in mates—invites disease and endangers the heaith of the city. We recommend the prompt attention of the proper anthority to this condition of affairs and that active measures be taken to remedy the evil. We request that the Clerk of this Court by directed to furnish a copy of this Re port to the President of the Police Jury of the Parish, and also one to the Mayor of the Oity of ß»tün Rouge. All of which is respeptiqlly submitted. D. H. PENNY, Foreman. Baton Rouge, Nov. 24th, 18(5.
