NEW ORLEANS NU 109 GRAVIER STRÈET. D. C. BYERLY, Manager. NEW ORLEANS, JUNE 23, IST4. We are again to baye Light rains aud warmer weather. Probs does not seem to care for us, after sending so much rain and refusing to stop. _ Messrs. Kain A Co , 130 Canal street, send ns the latest copies of Harper's Weekly, Frank Leslie's Illustrated, and New York Herald. - The smallest dew drop that resta on a lily leaf at night holds in itself the image oi a shining star ; and in the most hnmble, insig nificant person, the good and tme can always be found. Staub, from his cheap news stand, No. 69 Canal street, sends us a full list of the very latest Northern and Western papers, and the July number of the Atlantic Monthly. Staub has plenty more where these came from. We had the pleasure of meeting Major W. B. Spencer, of Concordia parish,, who is pass ing through this city with his family, on his way across the lake. We wish him a pleasant summer. The elder Booth had an appreciation of liquor which amounted to devoti on. He went to a pawnbroker's i-hop one night when out of funds and pawned himself to "My Uncle ' for a glass of whisky, and actually sat in the window, among old pistols, opera-glasses flutes, and fiddles, until some of his friends redeemed him. A decision has been given by the referee against the Maine Central Railroad, in favor of a passenger for injuries suffered at the hands of a drunken fellow passenger. It is held that not to exclude from the cars per. sons so drunk as to be noisy and quarrelsome is negligence which will make the railroad company responsible for damages. The calm philosophy with which the Camp street hybrid views the outrage perpetrated against its neighbor, is only equalled by the Chesterfieldian style in which it delicately al ludes to the doings of its proteges who com mitted it A cynical French writer once re marked that there was always something pleasing to every man in the misfortunes of his best friend, and to that rule we are afraid our gay and festive neighbor, with somewhat Mormonic proclivities, is no exception. New- Books.— Messrs. Kain A Co., book sellers and stationers, No. 130 Canal street send os the following new publica'ions: " The Vicissitudes of Bessie Fairfax," by Holme Lee; Forter A Carter, Philadelphia. "Lulu's Novel," from the German of Eiise Polks; Loring, Boston. " No Alternative," by Annie Thomas; "Valentine, the Countess," by Carl Detlef, translated by M. S. ; Porter A Coates, Philadelphia. Here is what happened to a lady in San Francisco, as described by a paper of that city: " She kicked with both feet as high as a ballet star, gave the peculiar, shrill, feminine ■cream, sat down, said * Oh my,' smoothed down her disordered attire, looked around wildly, rose quickly, shook herself to see if anything was loose, gave a withering glance at the place where she had fallen, and, with all the spare blood she had in her face, went on with her shopping." Speaking of the search for fine voices Olive Logan says: "The Strakosch brothers and their agents attend divine service in churches of every denomination, on the lockout for promising vocalists; they visit theatres and meeting rooms where public speaking is going on, with ears sharpened to detect musical pos sibibilties in a speaking organ whose owner has not suspected them; they haunt low sing ing halls, where beer is sold and tobacco smoked, ready, if a voice is found, to trans port it to the Italian opera, or cultivate it at their own expense until it is fit to warble the world of music-lovers to its feet." As the character and affiliations of the Times are thoroughly known in this community, we do not feel called upqn to comment upon its ambiguously worded remarks on the outrage perpetrated against us by the police, and its semi-apologetic strictures upon the course of the highway robbers who forcibly took pos session of our forms on Saturday night The blow aimed at the Bulletin is one which may, at any time, fall upon every other paper not sold to the unscrupulous individuals now' in power by the grace of Federal bayo nets. The Times, as every one knows, is be" youd any such contingency—hence its croco. dile tears, and scarcely concealed ohuckling over the outrage. Now that Badger's police have given evi dence of their daring in the midnight cap ture, by force of arms, of a wheelbarrow con taining the forms of our paper, it is to be hoped they will devote their energies to the arrest of negro drivers who run their floats at full speed in broad daylight in our most crowded thorough fares. The fact that the latest victim of this tolerated violation of the city ordinances was the daughter of a Democratic journalist may, perhaps, go far to palliate the criminality of the sable Jehus who are thus allowed to indulge their racing propensities, but it is barely possible that, should such a case again happen, the byslanders will feel bound to take the law into their own hands, and to ornament the nearest lamp-post with the dangling car cas of one of Badger's pets. Mr. George Ellis, the popular newsdealer, opposite the Post Office, has our thanks for the latest Northern and Western papers. Mr. Ellis has always on hand the latest and best illustrated papers, periodicals, magazines and novels. He has sent us Harper's Weekly and Leslie's Illustrated. The announcement that Mr. Paul Butler, ■on of Gen. B. F-, has been elected President of the " Pi Eta" Society of Harvard College, f „ll s forth the following from the Natchez Democrat : The Na t***» Mrs. Partington, with her "an cient ■p ectyctea on her aged nose," after read iÄ'ÄÄK ■peu it right." -,Y of of A a hm S in the the us, to ISC AG lily a 69 of ' In the matt« of the prayip f< by Albert Baldwin, Èsq., to compel Treasurer Dubuclet to turn over to him the funds of the State, on the ground that he had been elected Fiscal Agent by the Board of Liquidation created by the Fnnding Act, Judge Hawkins Saturday rendered a decision in favor of the Treasurer. Our readers are aware that Jos. H. Oglesby, Esq., was duly elected Fiscal Agent of the State under a previous act, and that he has filled the position greatly to his own and Mr. Kellogg's satisfaction for nearly two years. They are, perhaps, not aware, however, that a section was adroitly smuggled in the Funding Act, which it is claimed gave the Board of Liquidators the right to elect a new Fiscal Agent of the State. Neither can they be ex pected to know all the heartburnings and jealousies to which that little section have given rise in circles which are nearest to the usurper. The efforts made by Mr. Oglesby to be elected under the new law were simply ex hausting, but resulted in failure, notwith standing the de facto made as many promises as usual, and, as usual, went back upon them all, and Mr. Oglesby woke up one morning to find Mr. Baldwin claiming to be not only Fiscal Agent so far as concerned the funding of the Slate debt, but Fiscal Agent in the fullest and most comprehensive sense of the term. Of course he protested, and of course Mr. Dubuclet refused to deposit in Mr. Baldwin's bank, because Clinton, Dubuclet 's bitterest enemy, is said to have been the arch conspira tor who fixed up the little trick on Oglesby. Clinton's animosity to Oglesby arose, it is.be liéved, from the fact that during the excite ment last year, the Fiscal Agent was not dis posed to meet the extraordinary demands of the Auditor, and gave him bo little trouble in the execution of his illegal and high-handed measures. It is a pretty squabble as it stands, but the belief is that the Baldwin faction will win in the long run. If the Funding Bill be constitu tional, we incline to the opinion that Mr. Baldwin will be the Fiscal Agent. SYMPATHETIC—VERY ! Balam's ass has spoken ! In its most orac ular tone and manner, that "immovably neutral " animal declares that " the seizure of the forms of our Gravier street neighbor is a circumstance which requires some further ex planation." The hybrid concern of Camp street does not view what it euphoniously styles "the transaction" in the ' 'light of an outrage on the American people, " but after clearing its friend Houlihan, "of any improper devices," it simply treats the midnight robbery instigated by him as something "peculiar," a little par donable eccentricity on the part of Houlihan, Flanagan, Badger A Co., calling "for inquiry if not reproof." Break Neck Speed. —Every morning a "newspaper train," driven at the highest speed kn >wn on that line, leaves New York for the cities southward of it. Such are the dan gers of the journey, that we are told the en gineer, fireman and others employed on the train, have signed a special paper, declaring that they will not hold the company responsi ble in damages in case of disaster. Some time ago a carriage was run into and the train nar rowly escaped a smash up. Now we are tojd that a passenger car has recently been attached to it, so that other lives besides the employees may be placed in peril. We describe this train in order to explain an item we find iu the New York papers, which states that on Monday it left Jersey City a half hour behind time, and made the time up before reaching Trenton. That is, the train, whose schedule time is the fastest on the road, on Monday, when running outside the schedule, was driven at the breakneck speed of 57 miles in 49 minutes. Nor was this speed of a mile a minute the fastest rate. Near New Brunswick five miles of road was run in 3 à minutes, or at the rate of eighty-six miles an hour. A An assault, in which eggs were treely used, calls forth the following appeal from a Mis souri writer : " Give us back the palmy days of the inquisition, or the foul fires of witch craft lifting their black columns to the sky ; but let the low principle of such midnight cliques, in whose breast is lurking in embryo the feelings of a highwayman, like the putrid yeast of death, that often spreads throughout the physician's frame and reduces it to a liv ing skeleton, be banished from the nation over whose domain the star of empire now trembles in its last revolution in the historic heavens.'' Cochise, the Chief of the Apache tribe who died recently, was the best hater of the white man in the country. Latterly he be came insane. By his death the Apaches are without a leader, and we may therefore hope for an end of (he troubles in Arizona and Texas. As there ig an unfinished Washington monu ment in the capital of the United States, so, by an odd coincidence, there is also an un finished Wellington monument in the capital of England. "The Iron Duke" died nearly twenty-two years ago, and found a resting place in the crypt of St. Paul's cathedral, near the spot where the remains of Nelson are de posited. Parliament voted a large sum to be expended on a Wellington monument Most of tbe money has been paid in advance to a sculptor who contracted to do the work, and bas left it undone—scarcely even begun. At Washington, on tbe other hand, the extent of the incompleteness is visible to everybody. [Phil. Press. It is said that the steadiest and worst of all Congressional annoyances is the unreasoning applicant for a lady clerkship, and who is told forty times over that there are no vacancies. A Pennsylvania Congressman has one general proposition for these feminine pests: " First select the position you most desire, " he whis pers, seriously, to the applicant; "then kill the woman holding it, and I'll get you into the vacancy." They usually eogitate. Senator Ferry, of Connecticut, says a woman has no more right to vote than a horse. It is a wonder that this high toned and refined getleman did not make the figure go on all tours by saying a mars instead of a hone. It would have added so much form and point to hm illustration. The wonttMufiragists com S lain that they are regarded beasts of bar en, and the honorable Senator from Con necticut seems to agree with them.—[Graphic. A house in Fort Dodge, Iowa, was unroofed in a late storm, and a cot, in which wan sleeping two little children, was carried off by the wind out of the house and set down in a pond, where it floated with its freight «âlü the children wan ro aaned , 4 to tle one ite of H. for of two and one the lane the ing, ham pear ing cry, Hill. into the one ana raeh come f< the the the has Mr. a of ex the be ex to of in EN A. & out A CARD a give beloir that caffi of ir, denying lufi^pAtmipatMfr rage perpetrated on the B«jll*tut last Satur day night. In another column will be found a card from Judge McArthur, First Police Magistrate, to the same effect Between the two, we are at a loss to know upon whom the culpability now rests. How the police can act without a warrant from a court, and how subordinates can be detailed to duty without an order from their superiors, we can not understand. If police officers can stop property belonging to a newspaper on the street seize it and by force of arms carry jt away—all without color of law and without responsibility resting upon anyone's shoul ders—then the people ought to know that we are in a state of anarchy, and that they must rely upon themselves. If Gen. Badger and Judge McArthur neith er are responsible, who is ? Is the Bulletin to be knocked about like a ahuttleoock— fun for the players, but death to the interests of our people ? It is time that those in charge of the pro tection of our property began to appreciate the fact that there are such things as private rights, and that they must be respected. We are not yet reduced to political pauper ism, and so long as there is a strong arm left, we are satisfied such outrages will not be permitted. Let the police beware. We would let the public know that no matter what may be the petty devices of the enemy the Bulletin will be found firm and un sparing in its battle against the horde prey ing upon the lives, property and liberties of our State. Editor New Orlean Bulletin: Dear Sir — Seeing in last evening's Bulletin my name used in connection with the deten tion of certain type claimed by Mr. Houlihan, together with the forms of the Bulletin, I simply desire to state that I declined to fur nish police to secure the property in question without a warrant Mr. Houlihan expressed a determination to make an affidavit before a magistrate. I then gave him the following note, which explains itself : "Col. Flanagan: Please furnish Mr. Houlihan two men in citizens' clothes to execute a warrant from Judge McAulhur's Court Yours, A. 8. Badges, Supt" I am very respectfully, your obedient ser vant, A. S. Badges, Supt A KELLOGG MAN AS AN IMITATION INDEPENDENT. New Obleans, June 22, 1874. Editor Bulletin: Dear Sir —The attempt by independent Kel logg man in the Times to hide himself in the lion's skin, is betrayed by his well known voice, not to mention the ears ; and although he is probably better known in the Custom house than in the Ninth Ward, there is suffi cient known by the independent Democracy to recognize in him a disturber and political counterfeit The real issne is the people of Louisiana against the Radical party; against midnight judgments; against bankrupt corporations, extortions and frauds; against internal revenue rascalities and outrages;,against a suborned and apologetic press; against jury packers, foot-pads, and would-be assassins. How, then, in this great struggle can the people strike allying hands with the em ployees, solicitors, or tools of the detested usurpation ? The independent Kellogg man, He raved and ranted sore, But his ears and his braying Showed he hadn't learned to roar. Respectfully, Nous Verrons, It seems odd that as stationary and digni fied an ob 'act as Bunker Hill Monument should owe its completion to the fact that Fanny ElLsler's nimble legs danced funds for that purpose into the Treasury of Tremont Theatre, Boston. But for her it is possible that the monument would never have been completed. At the close of the performance Fanny was vociferously called before the cur tain and made the following characteristic lit tle speech : " Ladies and gentlemen—Hence forward two monnments shall awise together— one of gratitude in my heart, the other gwan ite on Bunker Hill. A South Carolina correspondent of the New York Times has compiled a list of the officials of that State indicted or convicted of crime daring the past few months. The total is thirty-two, and includes the Governor, three county Treasurers, two county sheriffs, twenty four county commissioners, one school com missioner, and one police justice. These were State officers ; but one Congressman, K. H. Cain, has also been arraigned in the courts for larceny. An Amebican Cardinal. —The Enquirer, of Cincinnati, agrees with the St. Louis Re publican that , "as the United States must be considerek as among the great powers of the world, and its Catholic people numerous, wealthy and intelligent, the honor of the Cardinal's hat, it is thought, will no longer be withheld." The Republican adds that " the two prelates most notably conspicuous in learning and piety and in influence at the Vatican are Archbishop Purcell, of Cincinnati, and Archbishop Perche, of New Orleans. HOW THB URKAT DERBY RACE AP PEARED FRO» THE HILL [London Correspondence New York Tribune. To see the Derby from the Hill is reckoned one of Hie very best places. We saw it from the Hill, and I will describe what we saw* A lane of brownish-green turf between two solid walls of men and women, and carriages. The view on the left closed by the stands rising black against the sky. The nearest part of the browuish-green lane is an eighth of a mile from us. When it has been wholly cleared, a scattering troop of horsey go dancing, walk ing, plunging up the lane, ridden by small human beings in silk jackets of various bril liant colors. They go nearly up. to Totten ham Comer, then galop back past the stand stringing along as they like. They disap pear to the left. We wait five minutes, hardly more—not a horse in sight ; and a curious hush has come over the throng. Sud denly a great roar, beginning far off and com ing towards us; till it ends in an articulate cry, "they're off." Two minutes of pale sus pense, the race invisible to any mortal on the Hill. Then another swelling shout, " They're coming." Bound Tottenham Comer shoot into view in a second the glancing hues of the jockey's silk jackets, then you see the horses ander them; then, in a flash, five, well to gether, leading, the others tailing off, the whole twenty-one passing. Right opposite ns the five horses seem suddenly to stand Btill, one of the five, ridden by a boy in scarlet and black, . comes out from among them two lengths, the boy sitting down in his saddle ana not lifting a finger. There is not the stroke at tbe whip on the finit horse se they raeh on Mat the stand, bttl the others can't come ajpr him, and in tffifi ' seconds more QetfjMMcadecfck has won the Derby of 1874 #T"--" is do on the the & out How a can on we fun of pro be We un I a in tin: "A voi attention unity. It contains words of troth and warning that can not be disregarded save at our peril. No obsefring man can feil to see that the negroes are determined to role this State, by force if necessary. They are all organized and armed, while the whites are frittering away the pre cious time quarreling about old party issues that should long since have been buried, while a large majority of those most deeply inter ested stand aloof, fold their arms and do noth ing. Perhaps when they are driven to the necessity of defending the honor of their families, to say nothing of their property, they will realize, when too late, they had a vital interest in the present condition of affairs. I am well aware of all the difficulties attend ing so sadden and violent a change in all our domestic relations; no one can be more so, but it is a sacrifice we owe to the safety of our families and our honor as men. Nearly every one employing a negro will tell yon, Oh! Î have a good faithful negro that I cannot do without, I am one of those old fogies myself ; I have two that it will be hard with me to part from, having been accustomed to them all my life. I imagine with the other old fogies I cannot do without them, but I am now convinced they will soon do without us unless we are up and doing for ourselves at once. The ladies will be the principal sufferers for a time, but my word for it they will do their whole duty cheerfully. Blanc having said all that can be said to show the necessity of the move he advocates, will offer a plan to inaugurate it. It should begin in this city, as it is impossible for the rural districts to adopt it at once, and here it must be a combined moiement to have the effect intended. I would suggest a call for a mass meeting of bankers, insurance presidents, factors, grocers, dry good merchants, boss draymen, mechanics, heads of families, and all who employ negroes and let them pledge themselves each to the other, not to employ a negro under any circumstances, not even to clean oar boots. This seems a hard measure and will fall hard on a few good negroes, but it ia a matter of life and death, yea more» honor to us. They, the negroes, good and bad, have ar rayed themselves against ns. Let them abide the consequences. They all vote the Repub lican ticket, without knowing or caring who are the candidates. They dare not do other wise if they would. The adoption of this measure would at once give employment to thousands of honest, hard-working white men and w omen, our natural allies and de fenders, who are now without employ ment, in consequence of negroes filling places they should have. Failing in this move, I would respectfully suggest that the working men hold a mas3 meeting, and let those who prefer employing the enemies of our race to those who are the same race and blood, know in language that cannot be misunderstood, that when the dark hour comes, and come it .will at no distant day, when their brave earts and strong arms will be needed to protect them from negro aggression, that they can expect no sympathy from the men whose families were made to suffer that negroes might live in idleness and occupy all the comfortable situations for working men and women in the city. It is unjust it there was no other reason, to see the number of white men and women in need, while our streets are filled with fat, hearty negroes, who spend most of their time talking politics, supported by a situation many a worthy white man would be glad to have. I write plainly and eameatly, for I know the danger is imminent. We are sleeping on a vol cano, and unless our people are aroused from their apathy at once, it will be too late. Even now I would not be surprised to hear threats made against carrying out the measure I advo cate, but if with the loss of our other rights we have lost the right to choose our own em ployees, the sooner we know it the better.
