The election on the 27th of directors of ihis compamny, usually one of much monot ,nv, wai enlivened by a raid into the lmiect en .In-urA Iby that very popular per son kmnwn na the Governor of Louisiana, who. not ismntent with the patronage given him bi the co,-titution, and by the law pased at the lest session of the L~egiala ture, thought to ',rvern the selection of directors of this company also. It will be recollected that by an act passed in 1867, just as the session ended, the right of Ilhe State and of the city to vote for directors of this and the Jnekaon Road, wiach was then thought a doubtful one, wa relinqsiahed. The bill was not signed by Gov. Wells, but was sub)eqent ly approved, by one of his militarily ap poInted successors, whoe power to do thi'. has been sustained by judicial authority. Gov. Warmoth, it seems, regards this act as not binding on him, and undertook to vote yesterday, notwithatead its provi dons, and proceeded to the vote of the State for 26,000 shares of atock for the following gentlemen. most of whom had not previously been interested in a single share of stock, but who, as we are told, were the da7 before invested each witl, one of its present very valuable and high priced certilieatee of ownership, that they might be qualified Bth the post. The following are the gentlemen for whom the Governor offered to cast his vote: James Graham, 8. B. Packard, Robert Watson, A. E. Barbour, J. R. Robertson, P. D. Pr.att, A. B. Long, B. W. Francis, 8. T. Delasise, D. W. F. Bisbe, M. A. Southworth, Johla F. Deane, J. . Noy. , J. B. O e~lsby, Gen. 8. Cleveland, W. L. MeMillan, J. J. Williamsna, A. D. Grief, The commtmssoners nrfused to accept the vote tendered as a va3 one under th law, but received it umlor a protest against its being counted, and the Warmoth spread its wings and flew away, to seek the aid of that discreetly selected judieiary to enable it to enter more safely into the the sacred enclosure. But the example of the Radical insect was not usnotleed by another Executive functionary whose jurisdiction is not so eatenaive, or his power of appointment so well sustained; bet whose n ht to vote is quite as good as that of ;he Governor, and a trifle heavier. The Mayor of the city acticinv the circeumyrationa of the War moth ahso went to the place of voting, and offered his vote on 60.000 share., and though this was rejected on the same gvomsnd, bet reeeive. under protest, ii ties, in any event, the elect.ien of the following ticket. the one previously voted for bftoe stock holders : A. B. Segar, Ales. Mouton, Henry Reshnaw, 8. O. Belson, L Folger, A. MUcC.,lln, Robt. Hlaru, G. A. Ikeaex, F. W. Tilton, Sam'l Smith, G. W. Hyeion, A. Bower. I. N. Marks, W. 8. Pike, C. H. Slocomb R.

Among others he tried school teaching. "How long did you teach I" asked a bystander. '"Wai. I didn't teach long, that is, I on ly went to teach." '"Dii, you hire oat?" "Wal, I didn't hire out, I only went to hire out." "Why did you give it up f" "Wal, I giv it up for some reason or nnther. You see I traveled into a dee strict, and inquired for the trustees. Some body said Mr. Snicklnes w.s the man I wanted to see. So I found Mr. Suickls --named toy ohijic, interducing myself. and asked what he thought abut lettin' toe try my luck with the with big bovs and unruly gals in the d.-estrict. HIE wanted to know if I r-sly considered mr self captble; I told him I wouldn't mind his asking me a f-w easy questions in 'rithmetic an jtoraphy, or showing my hand writing. He said no, never mind, he could tell a good teachler by his gait. 'Let me see you walk off a little ways,' says he, 'and I cin tell jis's well's if 1 heard you examined,' says he. He sot in the door as he spoke, and I thought he looked a little skittish ; but I was consi'l'r able frustrated, and didn't mind much; so I turned about, and walked on as smart a' I koow'd how. He said he'd tell me when to stop, so I kept on till I thought I'd gone far enough: then I s'pected s'thing was to pay. and looked round. Wal, the door was shot, and Snickles was gone I" "Did you go back " "Wal, no-I didn't go back." "Did you apply for another school !" "Wall, no-I didn't apply for another school." said the gentleman from Swamp ville, "[ rather judge my appearance was sg'n me." Axscoors OF CosLn.-There is a good joke told about Colfas, when he and the Hom. Mr Fitch were opposinz candi dates for Congress in Indiana. Fitch had a ltter from a prominent citiszm of the distriek which reflected verb s-yerely iup on "Skyler" in several pattieular4, which during the joint diacussion between the-t, he was in the habit of reading. CoW!az, of course, h..J no rcp'y that be could pu. in, so he tried to "grin and bear it." How ever, Mr. Fitch imaginae that CO,!i.rx wa I very anxions to get possession of the latter. whereupon he hid it exactly oupi.--l, and I on the next day of di:cu+sion purposely placed the copy in the way of Mr. Culf4x, -who, very naturally, gobbled it up. On I the subsequent day, when they met, Mr. Fitch incidentally referred to "the letter he had in his po~session," etc., whereupon Colfax sprang to his feet and branded the statement as a e*lamny that he would no I longer eu·are, and def .-d him to show himn the letter. Turning upon him, Fitch said : "Is that what you watt, you little rascal I You think that you stole that let ter from me yesterday, but yo.: did not; it was only a copy. Here is the original. And now, Mr Colfax, I would propose to treat you as a fond mamma does a refrac tory boy, were it not that you show the seat of your punishment for the purpose of excititg sympathy." Colfas never denidr the letter afterward. RE.'DY vFO SMALL-OX.--A correspondent of the Stockton, (Cal.) Herald, writes as follows: I herewith append a recipe, which has been used to my knowledge ia. hundreds of cases. It will prevent or eure the small pox though the pittings are fill ing. When Jenner discovered cow- pox in England, the world of science hurled an avalanche of fame upon his head, but when the most scientific school of medicine in the world-that cf Paris-published this recipe as a papeceaifor small-pox, it pasesd auheeded It is as efailjpg as ~se, said conques in every in= ut ce.

If counties would compel their physicians to use this there would be no need of post-houses. If you value advice and experience, use this for that terrible disease. At a recent exhibition in a girls' school the question was put to a class of little one : "Who makes the laws of our Govern ment ?" "Congress," was the ready reply. "How is Congre.is divided ?" was the next question. But the little girl to whom it was put failed to answer it. An other little girl in the class raised up her hand, indi1ipglt she could answer it. "Well, isaid the examiner, "Miss Salliv, hat do you say the division is?" In stantly, with an air~4 confidence as well as triumph;.the answer came. "Civilized, half civilized and savage."
