the State Qouse grounds for the tomb
intended as the reocptaole of the re
mains of Gov. Allen. Messrs. G. M.
Lookwood and P. A. Walsh have kindly
volunteered their services to build the
vault, and Mr. Rabenhorst, in like
commendable spirit has proffered the
use of a magnificent hoarse for convey
ing the remains from the landing to
the place of interment as soon as they
shall have reached here.
The spot selected for the monu
ment is one admirable suited to the
purpose, being upon the immediate
brow of the hill, near the principal
entranco to the Grounds, surrounded
by handsome evergreens and com»
manding a fine view of the river.
C ity R eceipts, E xpenditures,
&c.—The estimated revenues of our
city for the year 1866, were $40,100.
The appropriations made by the
city government for the said year
amounted to the same sum, although
the actual expenditures exceeded
that amount by $12,437. The ac
tual receipts into the city treasury
during name year, from all sources,
were $49,166.31—leaving an amount
drawn on treasury in excess of col
lections, and unpaid, of #3,371.60*
Other claims against the city swell
this amount to $0,689.35, to meet
which deficiency there is a balance
due on tax roll of 1866, of 3,751.67
and bills receivable, notes maturing,
of $237.50—leaving a balance to be
provided for during the present year,
of $5,709.18.
These statements are in accordance
with tbo report rendered by the Au
ditor to the Mayor and City Council,
at their meeting on the 7th inst.

Committee fixes the estimated ex
penditures for the year 1867, at

our public roads.
The cry reaches us from every
quarter of the parish bemoaning the
sad condition of the public roads, and
urging the necessity of prompt and
sufficient measures of relief on the
subject. Our parochial legislature,
into whose hands are committed the
management and reparation of the
roads, owe it to themselves and
their constituents to hasten, by all
the means and appliances in their
power, to reform and perfect the pre
sent road system in such a manner as
will secure the earliest practical good
to the publio from such a source.
It has been suggested, that in or
dor to meet the expenses necessary to
the putting in thorough practicable
condition, our public highways, a tax
sufficient to aid in such a purpose
should be imposed on all the lands,
unimprovedas well as others, in the
parish, which are susceptible of im
mediate or remote benefit from so im
portant a measure.
It is the opinion entertained by
some that until this plan bo adopted
by the Police Jury, there can be no
surety of Anything like permanent
road improvement. The measure is
one which demands the earliest con
sideration of that body.
We are not in favor of increasing
the present burden of taxation which
the people are now subjected to, and
against which there is so much natu
ral antagonism of feeling, unless in
cases of positive emergency. It
should always be the aim and duty
of public servants to diminish, rather
than increase taxation, and to ex
pend on principles of the strictest
economy the revenues derived from
the people for supporting their local
and State governments. To depart
from such a policy is as unjust as it
is unwise aud oppressive. In the
caM) in view, however, where the de
mand is so urgent and imperative,
and the results eo desirable to the
community at large, as tending to
general convenience, comfort and
ßafety in locomotion and to the prop
erty interests within our parish, an
exception might very reasonably be
made in favor of a proportionate tax
on all lands whether improved or not,
liable to be benefited by a thorough
and energetic road system.
