Society's beaux are becoming very despondent over the prospects. ... .The time is fast slipping away, gentle- men of the Legislature. See to it that you make this session memorable by aots of solid reform and retrenchment. ----This is what might be called active weather; and the energetic collector runs briskly around, wearing a smiling faoe and sweetly murmuring, " That little bill, please." ____The beantiful river landscape in the pity now being performed at the Varieties Theater, is an ex tot reproduction ot a scene on the other side of the river, opposite a point just below the Barracks. ----The people of Louie ville, Mobile and Memphis are bending their entire energies to make the Carnival season in those cities ele gant and attractive beyond precedent; the most prominent citizens are takiug active part in the arrangements, and express a de termination to have the grandest pageantry and the merriest time of all. Let the loyal subjects of our beloved Majesty King Rex see to it that his visit to his chosen capital be made even more joyous and magnificent than ever before. Up to the present time his liege subjects here have provided such receptions for him as to wiu his highest approval and the applause of the people of his entire kingdom, and we feel assured that this year, though the work is done c-ven more quietly than ever, King Rex will have no occasion to be dissatis fied at the grandeur or the merriment of his welcome to the Crescent City. .... It seems the tobacco planters of Louisi ana are peculiarly unfor:nnate under the present Iuternal Revenue law. It has been decided that those who raise perique tobacco and pat it ap in carats on their plantations are oon.idered manufacturers, and owing to the diffi.-ulty they experience ia understand s'-anding the complex provisions of the law they are fiequently in hot water. Col lector Cockreui closed up some two or three in St. James p wish lately for omissions to comply with the law. Mr. Cock lem says that the Damera of the law never contemplated the Louisiana per qua manufac ture as distinguished from ordinary, and hence the many ob hades that lie ia the way o! the farmer. Oar S a'e is the only one where this species of the tobacco plant is raised iu large quantities, and the revenue l;w, it seems, does not exactly fit the case. FATAL ACCIDENT. of on a! r lü A Man Crushed to Death by the Falling of a Brick Wall. About hilf-pa^t 7 o'c'ook on Wednesday rnorcitig a horrible acc dent occurred on Poacher street, between Julia and St. Joseph. A white man nam<?(i James Qctinn, aged forty years, and a native of Ireland, while at work on a brick structure in the oonr.-e of con struction, wis crushed to death by a brick wall failing on him. Coroner Chastant hrid an inquest, and the jury rendered a verdict of accidbutal killing. His body was removed to his ia'e re-idence on Poycfarre street, between Fulton and Annette.

Pnrsuint to a call made by tho President of the M inhatt m C ub ot the S xth Ward, the meeting re-ulie 1 in a large gathering of the citizens of the ward, making quite an enthu siastic gathering, and there was enrolled many more memoers to the organization. It was unanimously fiesoh'rd. That the MtnhaUan Club prepare for the ooming campaign, aiming to keep from its ranks ad these who have grown old n poliiioid Vices, and those tricksters who seek for pl'iCti or profit without regard for party or the welfare of ihe counnnai'y. With harmony in < ur rank-, wi>dotu and modera tion in ourselves, we leel that our organization will add stieiigth to our party and prove a oemfit to our people. It W 119 farther re solved that all young men of tho Sixth Ward are respectiuliy invited to unite with us and j tin the Manhattan Club. The meeting adjourned pursuant io the call of the President.

THE REPOBT OF THE HAWKINS COMMITTEE was the principal topic of conversation at the State-House on Wednesday morning. A majority of the committee will report re commending the impeachment of Judge Hawkins, arid will ask time to prepare articles. Mr. Hahn will submit a minority report, setting forth that nothing which would justify an impeachment has been proven before the committee. This report was prepared in the office of Attorney General Field, and ander the supervision of that official. The Republican caucus has decided to assist the Conservatives in passing the arti cles of impeachment in the House as soon as presented, and they will, no doubt, go through with but, at the most, a dozen votes against them. THE CONSERVATIVE CAUCUS had its attention called by Capt. Ed. Flood, Chief Sergeant- at-A rm s of the House, to the in-mrauce on the State House. The insurance is for $80,(100 in various companies, but all the policies are held by the Citizens' Bank to secure the payment of a claim of $2100. It the building was burned, the State, under the circumstances, could not recover a dollar of the insurance. Some action in reference to the matter will, no doubt, be taken by the House. The principal subject before THE HOUSE of Representatives yesterday was the resolu tion calling on Congress to substitute in Senator West's bill, the name of the New Orleans Pacific Railway Company for the New Orleans, Baton Ronge and Vicksburg Rail road, us the ageuoy to bnild the New Orleans branch of the Pacific Railroad. Mersrs. Hahn and Keating both opposed the resolution, and backed up, in their re marks, the "Back Bine Railroad," although they said they had no interest in this corpora tion. Mr. Keating contended that any effort to amend the bill would result in its defeat and that the State would get nothing, and Mr. j Hahn held that the passage of snefi a résolu- j tion would amount to nqthing. as Senator a w5t".™a ZVZ "" £ fo "Ä*" 0 7" *!'■ ho v '• KX For this are we Legislators.

The regular monthly meeting of the School Board was held last nigh', President Dibble in the chair, and a quorum present. Mr. Ingraham took the floor on a question of privilege, and denied the charge made in some of the city papers that he had been blackmailing teachers. The treasurer submitted his regular month ly report It showed the following cash on baud: Balauco tax 1871...................... $1,775 96 ..1873................... 2,11161 ..1874...................... 12.516 27 ..1875.............. 5.242 88 Carrollton............................ 335 13 Total...............................$25,014 88 The Finance Committee, through Mr. Marks, chairman, reported,recommending the payment of bills amouuting to $522 46. The committee farther reported that the outstand ing obligations of the boaid for 1874 and 1875 amounted to $375,866 60, of wh ch amount $314,331 94 is due to teachers, $22,001 05 to porters $24,931 15 for rent, and $14,602 46 for sand ries. The Committee on Music reported, recom mending the adoption of a resolution pro viding that from and af.er the 29 h inst. the teaching of mnsic in the public schools be discontinued and the services of the teachers dispensed with. The board refused fo adopt the report. A resolution providing for a music teacher, at a salary of $125 per month, to attend the thr<-e H'gh Schools, was adopted. Tue President announced the following VieitiDg Committees for the month of Feb ruary: First District — Messrs. Lynch, Glaadin and Marks. Second District—Messrs. Gardner, Tracy and Massicot.

Notwithstanding the fact that there was no session Wednesday of the Grand Jury, the corridors of the Cnstom-Honse were crowded with those who have a scent for the aroma of the crooked, and old distillers, inspectors and gangers dismissed the probabilities of- the ooming trials with much earnestness, the more so perhaps from the faot that no one could say who would be hit next. When the Court opened and Judge Woods took the bench, only one of those indicted yesterday was present, and that was Patrick Harnan, an ex-guager. He was arraigned, but waived the reading of the indictment and pleaded not guilty. He stands cuargoi with falsifying a certificate of inspection of one hundred barrels of spirits daring the time he was in office. When he was asked whether he had any surety, Mr. A. J. Brim stepped forward and was sworn. District Attorney Beckwith pnt hioi through a severe examination relative to his property, and developed the fact that Harnan needed another prochein ami. Mr. Brim testified that he was the owner oi a square of gronnd in the S:xth District, be tween St. Charles street and the river. He was employed at present as a Custom-House officer. He thought his property ought to be worth $1000; bat there was a mortgage on it for $1500. He held this mortgage himself on his own property. He never had it erased on the books of the recorder, becanse he thougnt he would let it remain. He didn't do this as a cover against creditors. Judge Woods stated that he didn't think the surety good for more than $2500, and he ordered Harnan to procure another to make ap the earn required as bail, $5000. Harnan, after the judge's decision, seemed a little ooncerno ', and took his seat again b " iJe Um ; Ss STbrtu b" -IU b«t„e lb. of oonn. . 0ranf1 TH r" r ? k*" 0 " , , - !

Brady and his assistants in their ex aminations Lave discovered several irregu larities in the mode of keeping liquor books here, and for tho information of our mer chants we give the following from Gen. Brady: by ist by Brady: In the exapnination of the b;oks of whole sale liquor dealers in the' city by the agents now here, a few irregularities havo been dis covered, which are evidently the result of ignorance on the part of the book-keepers, or owing to erroneous instruction as to the method of keeping the government book in certain respects. For instance, a whol.-saie liquor dealer who changes packages should record in form 52 not only the number of the wholesale liquor dealers' stamp placed on the new pichaye by the gauger, bat also the serial number of ori ginal stamp upon the package from which the wholesale package is drawn. This number is always, or thould always be cut into the head of the cask at the time of affixing the staffip by the gauger. A column for recording this number will te found in the fo.ni kep: Ly wholesale deal ers, headed "Serial Nntnbir of Original S amp.", This record is required to be kept •to enable officers to 'raew wholesale packages to the original packages from which they are drawn. Another praotico prevails among certain dealers which is entirely wrong, it is said, and that is, entering numbers of stamps in wrong columns; for instance, s amps entered under the heading "Rectifiers." This is calculated to mislead an officer who may have occasion to examine the books, and really is not a compliance with the law, which requires dealers to keep a correct record ot their transactions. Although it is not Ihe intention of the officer^ who are now investigating the whi-ky busi ness here to make complaints, yet they say it will be their duty to take into account any dealers who refuse or neglect to comply after Laving thus been notified. Poverty and Labor Crops.— Probably in no year since the establishment of this Repub lic has there been more pinching want, Buff r ing, staivation, business embarrassment and financial depression than in the year j: st closed. And yet the crops have been mote abundant than btfore, and nature more pro lific in providing for the physical warns t f | man. Mau and government, and not nature, are to blame that there is so much want end trouble abroad in the laud. The agricultural reports for November and December say that the November returns indicate that th4 corn ! crop of 1875 was one of the larges*, ever 1 grown in this country, probably equaling the ! ■0 and 1872. It is at very largw crops of 1870 least a fourth gr-ater than the crop of 1874. and about a third larger than the crop of 1869 reported in tue last census Every section in the Union reports an increase. — Columbus, (0'a.)

A private secretary at £3000 a year, to do tho Presidents wruing, two asdstant eeo rotams at $2500 a year to do ihe work of the private secretary, two clerks at $2250 to do the work of the assistant sectetaricn [Laughter] A steward at $2000 t i supply the President's table with the cboiceat wince and the richest viands that could tempt on satiate the appetite, with $6000 a year for book«, periodicals, stationery, telegrams, »«J (a comical pause) other contingencies. What that meant he did not know, but he thanked God for the contingencies." [Laughter.] If the Children of I«rael signed for tbo fl.shpots oi Egypt, what must be the anguish of a sensitive soni when taking a last long fire well of such a salary ami luxuries ? He askei the gentlemen to g > home to their honest, hard-worked, over-.axed coustitaente aud tell them why four years was not a suffi cient length of time for any American citizen to enjoy such an office.
