Finite, who left the city for Washington on Saturday even ing last, tor the purpose of advau ciug the interests of the New Or leans Mint, arrived safely at his destination and went to work so promptly and vigorously that he may be said to have carried the Washington authorities by storm and gniued his point by a coup d'etat, to judge by the following telegram received by the Acting Superintendent of the Mint, T. G. Tracy, Esq : Obstacles to purchase of bullion will probably be removed to-day, and authority given to purchase in lots of 100,000 ounces. First, the great obstacle of pur chasing silver at the New Orleans Mint at one cent per ounce less than bullion was purchased iu New York and Philadelphia, was promptly removed by telegraph, as soon as the authorities at Wash ington were informed of the fact that the rtsie which the Govern ment had established, fixing the pnichasing price of silver in New Orleans at a less price than was paid in those cities, worked greatly to tire injury of the New Orleans Mint. And secondly, w-W-hs desired that the limit for the purchase of silver bullion "in lots" migSY he augmented to the respectable amount of ouo hundred thousand ounces. Already the first step has been followed by most gratifying re sults. between seventeen and eight een thousand ounces of silver bul lion being purchased at the Mint iu a single d.y (Wednesday last), and a marked increase being ap parent iu the supplv aud putcliase <>f bullion duiing the other days that have intervened since (he re ceipt of the telegram authorizing bullion to be purchased in New Orleans at the same price as paid bv Hie gov»-, nment 111 New York and Philadelphia. Yesterday M. V. Davis, E<q., the coifji.f at, the Mint, lut ced over 10 000 silver doji tirs of the first coinage, and t«*-dav or to morrow will turn over $15.000 more already coined. Tire new money is us "prettv as a picture," and in beauty of design and execution is equal to any piece of money ever coined in the United States. In a day or two these new, bright shilling silver dollars of the issue "1879" will be in cireuution, with the letter "O" 0 ^* mark of the New Orleans Mod) immediately underneath the wreath «nd be tween the letters "D" and "0* in the word "Dollar," on the eagle side of the piece. There is a large party of « omen in Illinois who think that on one issue at least they should have the privilege of voting. This is the temperance issue. A petition has been drawn up for presentation to the Legislature praying for an en actment which shall provide that in ail localities in the State the sale of intoxicating drinks, includ ing aine and beer, shall be deter' mined by ballot, sud that women, under the same condition« as men, shall be allowed to vote. This pe tition was adopted by the Woman's Temperance Union lost October, «nd since that time Miss Frances K, Willard, the President of the union, ha* presented its claims with marked success, it is said, in the chief cities and town* of the State. As an illustration of the support it ha* received, Misa Lydia Strewn, of Ottawa, IU., writes to the Tribune that from La Salle county alone a formidable list of signers will be obtained to the pe tition, and that in addition to this tliat county will address letters to each of its Representative* io the Legislature asking for their influ ence and votes, and that these let ters will have a still longer list of signers. —(N- Y. Tribune. v TRe License Act. The act imposing a license tat on trades, professions aud occupa tions, recently promulgated, pro vides that $1 shall be collected from each male inhabitant over the age of 21 years, 90 per ceDt of which to be applied to the support of the public schools in the parish in which the sum is paid, and the balance to the maintenance of the Charity Hospital; it taxes each re tail merchant $15; each keeper of a warehouse $50; each keeper of a livery stable $25; each owner of a back or hacks used for hire $15; each owner of e*sry other vehicle used for hire—if drawn by one hors«« or mule $5, by two or more horses or mules $ 10 ; each keeper of a billiard saloon—one table $25. two tables $40; each keeper of a coffee-honse or bar-room $85; each retail liquor dealer, i. e., dealers selling liquor in no leso quantity than an o:.Unary wine bottle, $15; each retail dealer selling liquors iu less quantity than an ordinary wine bottle, $85; each keeper of a restaurant, oyster saloon, «fee., $100; each keeper of a hotel $250; country iuu $25; boarding bouse with accommodations for ten or more boarders $ 20 ; steamboat agent $ 20 ; insurance «gent $ 1000 ; druggist $30; each physician, den tist, attorney, surgeon, $ 20 ; each keeper of a stand nr stall in a market place $5; each mechanic, barber or tailor who employs four or more hands $15; each club house where liquors are supplied to members or visitors $85; <fcc. The act also provides the manner of enforcing the collection of all licenses, und stipulates that «11 unpaid licenses for the year 1878 oiay be enforced and collected. Fate or the Apostles. St. Matthew is supposed to have suffered martyrdom, or was slaiu in Ethiopia. St. Mark was dragged through the streets of Alexandria, Egypt, until he expired. St. Lnke was hanged on ad olive tree in Greece. St. John died a natural death. St. James, the great, was be headed at Jerusalem. St. James, the less, was thrown fiom the pinnacle, then beaten to death with a toiler's club. St. Phillip was hanged up aga : n t a pillar at Hiyropolis, a ci-y cf Phryg'a, St. Rartholomew was flayed alive by the command of a barbar ons king. St. Andrew wa* bound to a cross, from whence he preached to the people until he expired, St. Thomas was run through the body with a lance. St. Simon Zealot was crucified in Persia. St. Jude was shot to death with arrows. The New York Sun hm» an un pleasant habit of recalling events uhd circumstances that the parties interested in would much rather have forgotten. The last instance of this proclivity on the part of the lively San is the reproduction of a speech made by senator Chandler, of Michigan, just before bis retire ment to give place to Christiancy. It was about Mr. Hayes, and runs as follows : ** Wby, the d- —-d fool wouldn't bave been president at all bnt for me; it was I that gave him the vote of South Carolina, Florida and Louisiana." It is to be hoped that this speech will not interrupt the pleasant relations that now exist between the presi dent and the immacnlate Michi gander—[Galveston News.
