Hendln« Metier on Kvery Pngc* RETRENCHMENT AND FUNDING TUE CITY NOTES, A deep seated fueling pervades tliis community in laror ol a total reformation in the matter of mu nicipal and parish taxation. Our citizens since tlie close of the war and the restoration of civil govern ment, have been and continue to he visited, in the midst of their general impoverishment and increasing de cadence of prosperity, with the most onerous and atllictive burthens in the shape of taxation. With a view to remedying bo great an evil, as al so to devise a plan for funding the outstanding city treasury notes, a joint conference consisting of numer ous respectable citizens, tax payers, and the Mayor and members of the City Council, waa held at the rooms of the latter on Monday last. Among the citizens present, were the gentle man constituting a committee ap pointed a few days since by Mayor Elam, to take into consideration the subject of the financial condition of the city and to suggest for municipal action such measures oi relief as they might deem advisable aud feasible in the premises. This committee submitted a report embodying the result of their views and delibera tions upon the subject. The report recommended a redemption of the city currency known as "redbacks," by funding the same in bonds of $- r >0 each, bearing eight per cent, interest per annum. It also recommended a general retrenchment in municipal expenditures and especially with re ference to reducing the salaries of officials and employes of the city government. The report, after un dergoing discussion, was put to vote before the Council and unanimously adopted—the Mayor, however, hav ing certain objections to its passage, which he stated, accompanying those objections with a declaration that he submitted to tho passage of the re port only under protest, which he intended filing with the proceedings. There in no disguising the fact, let those whose interests are affected by this reduction of salaries view it a« they may, that the masses of our tax paying fellow-citizens si, und by the Committee in its report, and hail with unmistakable satisfaction, whatever possible expediency can be brought to bear, tending to an econornioal ad ministration of tho city government and a consequent lessening, of that very serious and crushing infliction of taxation, municipal as well as paro chial, under which tho individual of taxable citizens and the interests at large „of the city are now groan ing, languishing and perishing. While it is right and proper that tho public servants should be main tained by the public in a manner commensurate with their respective sta tions and duties, it by no means fol lows that extravagant appropriations of the public funds, to be met by piling on the taxes for such a purposes are justifiable at any time, much less in limes like these, when so many of our citizens are struggling under the greatest difficulties, for a bare subsist ence for themselves and their families. Oppressive taxation therefore, with its concomitant evils, <fco., is not and cannot bo viewed by them in a spirit of pHSsiveness or equanimity. The members of the City Council acted wisely in adopting the report submitted to them by the Committee There is good reason to believe that under the system of financial reform thus initiated, the outstanding amount some $10 ,000 — of "redbacks," will be funded and the credit of the city en hanced thereby, aud also that with a retrenchmqju by wbicb say $5000 in salary expenditures alone will be saved to the treasury, (not to speak of other retrenchments looking to sn eco nomical administration), a corres ponding reduction will ensue in the present exorbitant rate of taxation which prevails in this community. Let the new incoming members elect of the City Council look to it that these measures of reform be faith" fully adhered to and carried out. — The deep local interest mani fested here aB well ae elsewhere in the contemplated project of re-open ing the Bayou Mauchac with a view to rendering it available for purposes of navigation, prompts us to lay be fore our readers the copious excerpt,a embodied in the article below, which we copy from the Mobile Register of the 10th inst. : TUR MANOI1AC IMPROVEMENT, This great movement, says the Register, still continues to attract at tention and accumulate support in every part of the Mississippi Valley, from St. Louis and Louisville to New ( >rleans We learn, through private advices from Ht. Louis, that the "Union Merchants' Exchange," of that city endorsea the action of the board of Trade and will support the movement. # The merchants of that city who have specially interested themselves in it are very desirous of having the delegation from Mobile proceed immediately to St. Louis, and are prepared immediately to unite with them in urging the matter forwarn. The St. Louis Democrat ol the 11th inst., contains an account of the presentation of a gold watch and chain to Myron Coloney, the com mercial editor of that paper, by the members of the Union Merchants' Exchange, in token of their appre ciation of his services in behalf of the commercial interests of the city. Several speeches were made—among them oue by Mr. L. R. Shryock, one of the committee that presented the watch. In the Course of his re marks—speaking of the advancing prosperity of St. Louis—Mr. Shryock said : s She needs to make one other step to give her a commercial supremacy that will dely all competition, and hasten her to a position that she must inevitably occupy yery soon— the great commercial and manufac turing centre of the Mississippi Val ley, it not of the continent. 1 allude to giviug her prestige and influence to the proposition 1 have recently brought to the consideration of the Board of Trade of St. Louis to re open the Bayou Manchac, in order that ordinary Western river steamers may load at our wharf with pro duce—especially grain in bulk— manufactured goods pf all descrip tions turned out of St. Louis work shops and foundries, and land along side of vessels anchored in the deep waters of Mobile bay, and discharge into them the shipments made from here to the Atlantic seaboard or the markets of the old world, also to de liver supplies to the city of Mobile for the immense country tributary to that city, and receive return cargoes of salt, coffee, sugar, hardware, quoensware, dry goods ; and in fact nearly three-fourths of the goods now received here by expensive railroad routes, could reach St. Louis by this inner passage to the Gulf at a rate so cheap our merchants could under sell all Western competitors. (Ap plause.] May I not hope the great importance of this enterprise will commend itself to our friend Coloney, aud that, by the power ol his pen, he will aid in making it, as he has the project of through grain ship ments, a complete success. (Con tinued applause I Gen. Shepard—another speaker on the same occasion—said : One gentleman has referred to the opening of the Manchac pass. You received the reference joyfully, gladly ; but what ought you to do ? It was stated at the Board of Trade the other night, that an appeal would be made to Congress for $250,000, to prosecute this work. Why, if you appreciated your own interests, gentlemen, in less than six months' time that $250,000 would be forth coming from your own pockets, and you would be clearing that pass, and your boats would be loading cargoes for Mobile. [Applause.] You, gen tlemen, have the key to unlock the material prospects of this great val ley, beyond all other men, and it rests with you only to develop them. I would say, therefore, in concluding, remember your responsibilities, and work not only for the present, but especially for the great future which is in your hands to mold. The New Orleans Commercial Bulletin takes up the subject, and discusses it at length, in n spirit of enlightened liberality. The Bulletin advocates the project, and does not believe it would involve any injury to New Orleans. It combats—as we .have often done—the narrow notion that the gain of oue place is neces sarily the loss of another. This is the true idea—as wise as it is liberal. Wo quote a few passages from the Bulletin : We have no fear of the conse quences. If the Bayou Manchac be the best outlet, the Northwest is en titled to use it. If Mobile be the best market, tho Northwest is enti tled to resort to it ; and most assur edly, if there be a better waterway than tho Mississippi, a better port, or a better market than Now Orleans, the interior producer has a right to avail himself of it. But there is really no rivalry be tween the ports or outlets of the South. The true theory of our com merce is that our Gulf ports lie be tween the Western interior and the countries south of us. If we shall succeed in dislodging that Western trade and in diverting it from its present course to Europe or to the Southern part of our own continent, there will be enough to support every Gulf city of the South. If we do not succeed, theBe cities will dry tip and bake in a Southern sun like the little fishing towns of the Levant. New Orleans and Mobile are sepa rated about one hundred and fifty miles. They have perhaps an ag gregate population of three huudred thousand. New York and Philadel phia are ninety-sevon miles part. They have an aggregate population of nearly two millions. So there is no absolute inconsistency in the in terests of our two cities so far apart as those of the Southern Culf States. That, however, our readers may not be startled by these extraordinary concessions, we will just remind them that the Northwest has a representa tion in Congress for more than sev enteen millions of people, and that, whether it met our corporate or edito rial approval or not, the Northwest will be pretty apt to do whatsoever it may consider to its interest upon this or any other subject. ##»•##* It is not at all improbable that if the Manchac Pass were opened the Mobile cargoes would be transferred from the river to gulf craft at the lake end of our, canals and railroad —the reason being that the expense of wharfage and transfer might be less than at our levee. We have heard some instances in which small vessels in the Texas and West India trade have come «»round by the lake and canals to avoid the towage and levee charges oublie river. But, in a word, New Orleans is becoming too large to think of monopoly. It will be on the most liberal scale of commercial development she can alone hope to prosper. Every cargo that goes to sea., by any Southern outlet will bring its representative values to be discounted by our banks and spent among our merchants. If the Northwest opens the Manchac Pass, we shall expect New Orleans to profit in oue of two ways—per haps in both. She may get the benefit of this trade, aud if it goes by way of Mobile, it will certainly compel a reduction of our through charges aqd wharfage; all of which will benefit our city by bringing more commerce. New Orleans, with more facilities of railroad, express and steamships, must soon become the great Southern emporium of merchandise, and especially of gro ceries Everything, therefore, which opens up any new territory, or de velop* any new trade, must promote her prosperity. We caunot see therefore, why tho Manchac crevasse should damage New Orleans any more than the New Jersey canal hurts Now York. Each is a feeder to a great city. In connection with the above, we present the following letter, written by Mr. Troost, in answer to a com munication from Mr. Ledyard, chair man of the delegation appointed to proceed to St. Louis : M obile , May 14, 1868. Dear Sir : I have tho honor to acknowl oitjfü tho receipt of your letter of tho 18th j.nst., re<juoHtiri(f information to guide those who are interested in effecting » passago for navigation botwoen tho Mis sissippi river and Lake Pontchartrain. Some twenty years ago I made ft recon noissancc of the^boundry botweon tho Mis sissippi rivor arm tide water ot Lake Mau ropas, which communicates with Lako l'ontcburtrmn, with the viow of ascertain ing the practicability of such a passage. Sly opinion is that it is practicable to ef fect a channel between the Mississippi rivor and tidewater in Lake Muuroous, that can bo rogulated, and will bo navigablo at all l imes for vessels drawing 6 75-100 foot wa ter, the depth of water which can be taken through Grant's Pass, between Mobile Bay and Mississippi Sound. Tho amount of work required, and lt g cost, can only bg determined by an in»tro !»««• aim* _ ' " ' " il* D* .whlôh »ill be |3,000. The survey should montai Kdfvey and borings, the expense of II be |3,000. The »urvoy sboulc* on I bratico en examination of Lake Pont chgrtrain and Mturejpas, and the pass be tween them, to ascertain wliotber obstruc tions to navigation exist In them. Very respectfully, your ol»'t serv't, LKW 18 TBOOST, Civil Engineer. W h. J. L hdtabd , Esq. To the foregoing, we will add the following from the Iberville South of the 16th. It comes, we presume, from tho pen of Gen. Louis Hébert, who i» connected editorially with the journal named. Gen. Hébert is an old, experienced, scientific and practi cal engineer. He filled in former years, and with great ability, the posi tion of 8tate Engineer for this State. The views enunciated, therefore in the artiole below, are entitled to more than ordinary weight and considéra* tien, and will doubtless meet with the favor they deBerve, in the general summing up of all the pros and cons relating to the Manchac project : BAYOU MANCHAC. We see by the Mobile "Times," that another attempt is being made to re-open Bayou Manchac, in order to re establish the water communica tion which formerly existed between the Mississippi and the Lakes Maur i-pas and Pontchartrain, aud thence, along tiie Gulf coast, to Mobile. It will be remembered that the Manchac anciently called the ("River Iber ville") was artificially cloted about 50 years ago. The proj f ot of re open ing it for navigation, is started by the enmmmercial men of the larger citiee of the We«t and those of the city of Mobile; arid in order to accomplish tlipir object, they intend to apply to Congres for a law which will give the necessary authority,—and perhaps also the means,—to perform the work required, without any interference on the part of the State, ParisheB or in dividuals So far as regards the com mercial feature of the enterprise, we can raise no objection ; but there is a large area of the State of Louisiana to which the re-opening of the Man chac is a matter of serious moment in another aspect As matters now stand, the waters of the bayou would over flow its natural banks and inun date the largest portion of tho State east of the Mississippi, from the Baton Iiouge hills downwards. It is, there fore, of all importance that substan tial levees be built ulonß the banks of the Manchac so us to prevent its over flow, before restoring its connection with the river. When this shall have been done, and also other works con structed at Ibculities which might also suffer from an increase of water in tho lakes and other interior streams, wo will not oppose the opening of the bayou. We are and have always been an advocate of what is called the "ouUet system," with regard to the Mississippi river ; but wo have always maintained that before adopting this system, every preparation should be made and precaution taken, to con trol the water that would be allowed to pass through each and every outlet. We advi»e those who may be af fected by the rc-opening of the Man chac, to appoint iriends at Washing ton city to represent them and watch their interests. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. IRISH LINEN.
