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 :

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

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

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.
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
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
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."

without any greater effort than is re

lock, and it acts with perfect regulari

a quoin in tempered metal, which is
provided with teeth, and the llU'e ap

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.—

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.
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.
