The property was recovered. Grand Labceny. —Mr. Jaoob Bode, residing at the corner of Broadway and St. Charles streets, called on Sergeant Anooin Monday and got him to arrest a woman named Eliz o beth Miller, charged with the larceny of plate and valuable papers valued at $250. Eliza beth resides in the locality and had occasion to visit Mr. Bode's house to see some of the servants, and it was during one of her visits that she stole the properiy out of the dining room, and made eff with it to parts unknown. Suspicion pointed to her, as she was seen leaving the yard with a package just before tbe inmates discovered that the valuables were missing. Elizabeth denies having stolen the property, and states that she oan prove her innocence when the matter comes before the court. Boped In and Bobbed.— A cunning man, named Bobert Garnis, alias Bobert the Great, met a young man named A Barnes in a honse on Basin street, between Conti and 8t Louis, and made him believe that he was one of In np as 95 10 2 bis beat friends. Barnes, when he entered tbe p 1 «***. had $43 in currency in bu pocket, and soon after meeting Robert it managed to disappear. The presumption was that he stole it, and the irrepressible Bobert wss im mured in the Treme Station. The money was not found. A Sebious Chabge.— Ann Fergnson, a ser vant, was taken np Monday by Offioer Breh ler, in the parish of St Bemard, at tb « solicitation of Mr., W. M. Wagner, who charged her from information received wtb stealing $100 worth of property and attempt ing to set a dwelling-house on fire. She was locked np in the Fifth Precinot Station. Labcent. — The circumstances attending the loss of a lot of merchandise from the steamboat Frazier, lying at the head of Conti street, pointed so directly to the party, that Mr. O. Canton, Jr., caused the arrest and inoar-1 ceration in the Third Precinct 8tation, Mon day, of toe private watchman named Joseph Died fbom Injubies Beceived. —Mrs. Sey monr, the lady who was badly burned about the face and body while endeavoring to light Hylant, ebargin him with larceny. The ar rest was made on board tbe steamboat. a fire in tbe stove with a can of coal oil at 11 o'clock Monday morning at her residence 417 Fnlton street, died at a late hour Monday night from the effects of the injuries re ceived. Septoline Explosion. — About 1 o'clock Tuesday morning a septoline oil lamp ex ploded in the premises, No. 109 Dryades | street. The flames were extinguished by Officer Johnson with a slight damage. The I non-explosive septoline oil was purchased at [ the grocery, 115 South Rampart street. Minor Notes — The bridge corner of Ursu-1 lines and Roman streets is broken and in a | dangerous condition. A dead dog is reported at the corner of Da-1 maire and Miro streets. A woman named Lizzie Williams, aged 22 years, and a native of Mississippi, was sent to I tbe Charity Hospital in a sick and destitute | condition, from No. 267 Customhouse street. The 8candalons nomination of E. C. Bit lings as the successor of the notorious Judge Durell, notwithstanding his record as a mem ber of the New Orleans bankruptcy ring, taken in connection with other facts, is a strong indication that Grant designs to main- 1 tain tne ascendancy ot the Republican party in Louisiana by the same lawless means which be has hitherto used to seenre that end. Bil lings was the intimate associate of Dnrell, and the reputed author of the famous midnight order which was seized upon by Grant as a pretext for overturning the legal government | of the State by military force. He is a man of unlimited effrontery, and onoe installed in the office of United States Judge, wonld not hesitate to follow in the footsteps of his disgraced predecessor, or to usurp any authority requisite for the fullfil ment of plans laid for the illegal subjugation of the people, which might be determined on | by conspirators in Louisiana and Washing ton. The Senate of Louisiana have not only refused to abolish the Returning Board, which has heretofore been the means of placing in the most important offices men who have been rejected at the polls, bnt they have also prepared a new election bill," one section of I which virtually gives that board absolute an tbority to declare whomsoever it pleases elected to the L?gislatnre and other offices, without regard to the votes cast at tbe elec tion. It is asserted in Louisiana that tbe leading men in the combination of pablio plunderers who have so long ruled and robbed that an happy State have reoeived the strongest assnr anres from Grant that they shall have assistance of the United States army to aid them in their | . i 'resident's motive in defying pablio sentiment and outraging com mon decency by the nomination ot BilliDgs will be easily understood. It is possible that the vote of Louisiana next fall may determine I the question whether we are to have a third term of Grant, Casey & Co., and it looks as if those eminent patriots were resolved upon making it safe. -V. 1.
