The judiciary committee yesterday sti morning adopted the suggestion of o'0 General Brent as its report to the wl effect that in the opinion of the judi- TI ciary committee it is competent for the at General Assembly to pass any laws in de its discretion in Its control, custody en and labor of the State convicts notwith- th standing any contracts or laws referred W to in the repealing section of the bill in under consideration. foe Most of the time of the House was co taken up in consideration of the ap- Al propriation bill. sp Mr. Richardson, of Vernon, said the an governor had told him if appropria- op tions were cut down appropriately to th the revenue of New Orleans capitalists ch would afford means of paying cash and tid obviating the shaving of warrants by of brokers. wi Hunter, of Rapides, said charitable as warrants had sold for 51 cents. IIe ar was in favor of reducing the face of ap propriations and reaching a cash basis. of Speaker Ogden advocated the same H policy, advocating keeping the appro- hi priations down to the revenues, th The lIouse took in the estimation th and then announced the razing of the wi bill. frc The IIouse appropriation bill is qu slaughtered fearfully. The deaf and I dumb asylum appropriation has been reduced from $12,500 to $10,000 the a Agricultural and Mechanical college I cut down from $10,000 to $7,500; 2 the Southern university from $10,000 ] to $7,500. This was brought about by t Speaker Ogden taking the floor and the a House is cutting down all appropriation g under the head of miscellaneous. The t The insane asylum appropriations has t been cut down from $90,000 to $70,000. i The charity hospital from $50,000 to d $40,000; the charity hospital at Shreven port was reduced from $15,000 to C $12,000, of which $2,000 is for building t and the second year from $22,000 to t $8,000; Alexandria hospital reduced from 4,500 to 2,500dollars; soldiers' home fr0m 10,000 to 7,500 dollars.

I ported favorably, with amendment, Meeker's bill to abrogate John Mc Enery's contract to recover public lands. The House railroad committee lost no time in sitting down on Mr. Ran dolph's (of Caddo) bill to prohibit the use of free passes by state officer, etc. Mr. Coulon, of Lafourche, offered a proviso that none but resident students could act in hospitals. Messrs. Whitaker antl Hunter opt posed the measure. Mr. Claiborne, of Pointe Coupee, favored the proviso in a stirring speech, which was loudly applauded.

LONDON, June 18.-Mr. Gladstone b started off yesterday morning at 1 1 o'clock on his Scotch campaign. IIe was accompained by Mrs. Gladstone. Thousands of people congregated at I at the railway station to witness his t departure. The crowd, was simply enormous. It blocked and delayed r the approach of the premier's carriage. 8 When Mr, Gladstone finally succeeded a in reaching the station platform he t found it packed with people who wel- a comed him with enthusiastic cheering. c At last he reached his seat in the I special car assigned for his conveys t ance. The window at his seat was v open and when the crowd saw him i through the window it set up another h cheer which was repeated several K times. The people appeared desirous c of having the premier address them s with some parting words before going t away on this aiduous errand. le t arose and spoke from the coach window lie thanked the people for the honor s of their extraordinary demonstration. 1 lie adjured them to allow nothing to I hide from them the bare question of a the hour. Attempts have been mado, a the venerable orator exclaimed, and d will be made to divert your attention a from the real questi.,u at issue. The g question is solely whether Ireland shall g be trusted to manage her own affairs. at Those who deny Ireland this right, sa admit that Canada and the other is British colonies enjoy such rights. dl Are we to trust our fellow subjects In Ireland by love, or are we to adopt N the policy of the government's be enemies, introduce into Ireland a hi government by force ? Mr. Gladstone m then bade his hearers good bye and the at train moved away. Enthusiastic and at prolonged cheering accompanied the Ti departure and hundreds of people, sb waving handkerchiefs and hats and God speeding the Premier, ran along the platform beside his coach until the train outsped them. TIHE PAPAL MESSENGERS. ci Monseignor Germano Stranero, the beater from Rome of the beretta for b Cardinal Gibbons and Count Stanislause( Muccioli, who accompained him, are expected to arrive in New York by 0 the Servia on the 20th inst., as has c been announced in the Sun. Monseig nor Stranero is a native, it is believed of Portugal, and was formerly secre tary to the Nucio at Vienna. Little is known in this country of Count Mat tu cioll. He is a Roman, and it is under stood that he is the husband of a Miss Terry of North Carolina whose mother the wife of an Episcopal minister in Wilmington, N. C., Cardinal Gibbons confirmed when he was last at Rome. Rev. Charles Piccirillo, S. J., of Woodstock College, who was Sformerli A the confessor of Pope Pius IX, and as b such became acquainted with those who stood in close relation to the t Pope, says that he has written to Rome for information regarding the two gentlemen, but that they will ar. a rive in America before he receives an cI answer to his letter. In speaking of a the Noble Guard, of which Count Muc fl cilo is a member, he said that it was d such a body as surrounds the persons n of kings and rulers, such as exists in b Austria and was formerly an institu- g tlon of France. The guard is com-* posed of young men of noble families a who, as an honor and distinction, are ii attached to the personal service of the b Pope. Their number varies at dif- b ferent times, but is now about sixty. Although they have their own ri private residences they live at the Va. tican, unless a special permit allows them to visit their families. There is no difficulty, however, in obtaining tl such leave of absence. Well-fitted tt apartments are provided for them in w the Vatican, and when the Pope was at the Quirinal there were similar acs comodations for them. They rank from lieutenants upwards, their posi- di tion being one grade higher than they gi would occupy in the regular army. st Their pay is nominal, as most of them have revenues of their own. Two magniflcient horses are given to each of them to be used only in the Pope's service. When they are not on duty they are, however, allowed to ride their own horses. Their usual uniform is of a bright h scarlet, with heavy gold braiding. ri The coat is short, and below it is a tightly.fltting vest. They wore plum ed helmets, in shape resembling the headpieces of the ancient Roman sol- it diers. Their distinguishing weapon is w a heavy sabre, though when they ap- F pear on horsoback they carry a short cL gun, which is of exquisite workman. tl ship and handsomely mounted. The same uniform is not always worn, but is changed in style and color to sult different feasts and ceremonies. When the Pope goes riding the Noble Guards rides on horse bac k, before, behind and on either side of his carrirge, and in the Vatican one or more of them can, usually be found about the doors of the ante-chamber and near the apartments of the Pope. To thid guard of honor Count Mucloll belongs.--Battinore Sun, June, 11. TWO GASlEM The bill to suppress the playing of oraps, a gambling game patronized chiefly by plantation negroes, meets with great favor in the Legielslature. It is a good move. The bill presented by the ciltizens of New Orleans to sup press the glided and gorgeously light ed gambling hells on the public thor oughfares of this city has not been re ceived with favor; but, on the contrary has been husted out of the way by an indefinite postponement. This is a most deplorable business, but it shows the vastly different estimates placed by the Legislature on gambling when country gambling is compared with that in the metropolis. Gambling is an evil; it is in violation of the State Constitution and it called for proIbi tory legislation; but the line must"'be drawn somewhere, and it has been drawn by the Legislature at the doors of the Royal street gambling houses. As the immoral Capt. Cuttle would have said under the circumstances: "The bearing of this observation is in the application of it."-Picayune. - - ----~--- Crystallized violets at six dollars a pound are the very latest things in a confectionary. Candled rose leaves are also very popular. Girls like to eat flowers, and will pay as high as ten dollars a pound for some of the more expensive kinds. They are all brought from France, but, with the growth of favor for things American, we shall doubtless soon see a begin ning of the flower candying industry in this country, and the girls will begin to munch crystalized pumpkin blossoms and Johny jump ups. The following is a curious Creole remedy for sore throat : In swelling of the glands of the throat the swollen gland should be well rubbed with tallow, and the tallow smeard on thoroughly melted by holding close to the skin, without actually touching it, with the blade of a knife heated in the flame of a lamp or candle. Some say the point of the heated blade only should approach the skin, and that the point only should be moved so as to describe a cross immediately over the gland. The latter is a parely super, stitious idea. The Nashville Banner has made the following discovery: ",The people owe no office-holder anything. When a man has held office for years and years he is under obligation to the people, and should retire gracefully if they will it. They have paid him in honer and emoluments, and have a right to select another officer in his place without apology. The Interesting fact goes on record that when the infant King of Spain was being christened Alfonso Leon Fernando Maria Santiago Isidore Pas cual Marclano he protested severs times in a loud voice.--Plcayvne.
