1NA TCHITOJI.ES : Thersda .... .....Ja.lataary 16, 1S'GS. &s. A~olseNTYIRa is our duly author ised ageut at New Orleans. During the- past week we have had several very chear-y rains, which caused the River at Grand Ecore to rise about three feet, and is still rising rapidly. Up-freights, $3 per barrel. Cotton, 44 per bale. Passage, $35. The weather for the last several days lhas 'been rather cold, rainy and d(sa greeable. Yesterday morning it cleared off, moderated somewhat, and the pros "pets k are fair for it continuing so for a short: period. STlhe Telegraph of the 9th instant says the Ouachita River was still rising slow ly, with between 5 and 6 feet water on the bar. A,mong the many signs of the times is an ornamental one, of most excellent workmanship, executed by Mr. T. J. Stimpson, for the Spectator establish mont. It is one of superior skill, and speaks well for the artistic ability of Mr. Stimpson. Mr. L. Hanson has been appointed Town Constable to fill the vacancy oc casioned by the resignation of Dennis Murphy. Maj. Cromnie, of the U. S. Volunteers, who was recently mustered out of ser vice, under an order agreeable to act ofCongrres, has been re-appointed Sub Cornmissioner of the Freedmen's Bu rean for this, the 4th District, comprised of the parishes of Natchitoches, Rapides, Avoyelles, Sabine and Winn. In the Black-and-Tan Convention, on the 9th inst, Mr. Solomon R. Moses, a gentleman of unmistakable color, offer ed a resolution to the effect that after the 20th instant, no member be entitled to his per diem. The resolution was rhid on the table forthwith. * The Alexandria Democrat of yester day morning reports the river as having risen about 20 inches, and still rising. TTpon the recommendation of Gov. Baker, Gen. IIanoock appointed, on the 0th instant, G. W. Compton, sheriff of Rapides parish, vice A. J. -Sypher, re signed. We are under many obligations to Major Cromie-who has just returned from New Orleans-for late favors. \he Shreveport Gazette of the 11th instant says the River at that place had risen 30 inches within the past ten days. The Store of Mr. Harris Jaff'ra was robbed, on the night of the 8tl instant, of about $100 in money, and several pistols. See advertisement of Carver & Snd dath, dealers in Dry Goods, Groceries, Hardware, etc. A complete and select stock is constantly kept on hand to suit the wants of purchasers, and will be sold at moderate prices. The Arkansas Menagerie convened at Little Rock on the 7th instant. The Georgia Convention levied a tax of one-sixteenth of one per cent. upon the people to defray the expenses of the con cern. As yet the members have failed to receive any money. . nEw GOVrrn~O.-On the 2d instant Gen. Hancock appointed the venerable Joshua Baker, of St. Mary, Governor of Louisiana, to till the vacancy occasioned by the forced resignation of B. F. Flan ders. Gov. Baker has been duly mus tered in--or rath'er, sworn inl-and en tered upon the discharge of his oftlicial dluties. It is to be hoped Gov. Baker "ill see that everything is well done, and that some of those leeches around the public crib will get their "goose cooked." We are in receipt of the February number of ih'e Modenwelt, an excellent illnstrated Magazine devoted to Fash ions, fncy work, literature, &c. Each nonthly nulmbeor contains a large pat tern-sheet and diagrams of embroidery. Published by 8. T. Taylor, 349 Canal street, New York, at $3 a year.

Convention Tax erdLinance. The Or.linance as repot ted by the Fi nance Committee, and amended by M3r. Cooley, was adopted, as follows, by a vote of 16 yeas to 19 nays: Sue. 1. To pay the delegates and of ficers of this Convention, an"d to detfray all other expenses nccessary for the use of said Convention, the following tax is hereby levied on the property of this State, both real and movable, viz.: a tax of one mill per cent. SuE. 2. The Sheriffs of the State, except the parish of Orlepus, shall col lect the above mentioned tax, and that they ret'er to the assessment rolls made by the State of Louisiana for the year eighteen hundred and sixty-seven (1867) as the basis for assessing the tax herein levied on real and movable property, and in order to facilitate them in the collection of said tax, they are hereby authorized to employ all summary rein edies now given by law for thle collec tion of State taxes, and shall receive for their services the same compensation. paid them by the State for like services. SEC. 3. The tax herein leried, and which shall be due by the parish of Or leans, shall be collected by persons now charges with the collection of State taxes in said parish, and they shall pos sess the salnt powers and receive the same compensation. SEC. 4. The Sheriffs and other per sons chargeed with the collection of the tax levied by this ordinance shall pay to the Treasurer of the State, at the end of every month, except the tax collec lectors of the parishes of Orleans and Jefferson and Orleans right bank, all sunts collected by them under this ordi tnace, and shall settle finally with the Treasnrer on the 1st day of April, eigh leen hundred and sixty-eight (lS;iS.) But in no case shall the State Treasurer give a receipt for either a partial or tinal settlement without requiring the sheriff or other collector to take or subscribe an oath that he has paid all the money collected by him to date of settlement, less his commission. Sac. 5 The tax collectors of the pa rish of Orleans shall settle with the Treasurer of the State every ten days, reckoning from the day of notice which the said Auditor shall give said collector of the said ordinance and the tax there in levied. SEC. 6. So much of the tax levied as may 1)e required to pay the delegates and officers of this Convention, and to pay all other expensss necessary for the use of said Convention, shall be paid by the State Treasurer upon warrants sign ed by the warrant clerk and counter signed by the Presidentof this Conven tion. The balance of the tax levied shalljbe placed by the State Treasurer to the credit of the general fund, and re served until the meeting of the General Assembly elected under the provisions of the Constitution adopted by this Convention, to be used as they may direct. Sec. 7. As soon as the Treasurer of the State shall be notified of a loan hav ing beeni effected by this Convention lie shal! pilae the funds received by him under this ordinance to the credit of said loan, and the said fund, or as mutch thereof as may be necessary to pay said loan shall remait, specially pledged to repay said loan. Sic. 8. The tax levied by this ordi nance shall be paid only in the'legal currency of the 17nited States. On the 7th instant, Mr. 'Cooley, of Pointe Conpee, offered the following re port, signed by himself and Judge Talia ferro, majority of the committee to a horn was relfri "d the above Ordinance : To the C('nstiituinaln Conrention of 'th State of Louisditan: The nndersitneld, appointed a special committee by this honorable body to consider and report upon1 the ordiuance introduced by the _ion. ,V. Jaspei Blackblurn, in relation to the warrants issued by thile Conven lion for the pay of members annd officers, which said ordinance proposes to makeý said warrants receivable in payment of all taxes that are levied by this Conven tion, the different State taxes, municijpal and parochial taxes, and the purchase of public lands; antd also the substitute offeired to said ordinance by the I on. WY. IT. Cooley, forcing the Sherifth and tax collectors throughout the State to pay into the State treasnry only such f'ulnds as were actually receiveld hy them in paymenIt of the tax levied by thei Convention, and requiring the Andi*or of Public Acconnts to exact evidence I'rom each tax collector or sheriff to the effect that the funds or warrants oflired to be paid into the treasnr-y by themn were in payment of tax referred to, beg lea\ve to report as follows: TI,ey are of the opinion that this Con vention has not the power to make the warrants it issues for the pay of mem hers and offleers receivable in piatyment of any other tax thlan thatlevied for the puri'po.e of delfraying the expenses of this (Convention. Practically, this Coinvention cannot carry out the ordinance it passed on the 24th of )December, levying the mill tax, which they undoubtedly had the power to pass under the reconstrnltion laws. The Courts of the State would eQjoin that ordinanee,but the con m itte (though they ure not certaiun hle will de1 so) hopel and believe that the Commanding Genu eral will enforce the oe iginal ordiniance in question, and remove jiudgs deciding against it as imlpediments to reconstruc tion. The committee think the Commandl ing General will enforce the ordinance if not hanmpered by the clearly illegal pro visions of the ordinance proposed by Mr. Blackburn. They therefore report unfavorably upon that measure and in favor of the proposition of Mr. Cooley. Blackburn, of Claiborne, presented a minority report, as follows: Having been appointed one of a Comamittee of Three to report this morn ing on the matter of the ordinance which I had the honor to introduce yesterday, ogether with the substitute thereto of fered by the houormble member from Pointe Oonpee, I respectfnully ak leave to report on my own behalf in favor of the ordinance as first introdneed, subject to any verbal changee which may be deemed necessary by the triends of the measre. REeoNsTrlUC1 TroN,-,Tho following is the lReconstrnct ioln bill as it passed the hlouse of Represcnitatives on the 1Sth_ alt., yeas 104, nays 30 : SEa:TION 1. Ile it enacted, That so much of the 5th section of the act passed lMarch 23rd, 1867, entitled "An act supplementary to an act to provide for the more eflicient goverment of the rebel States," passed March 2,1867, and to facilitate their restoration, as requires that a majority of all registered voters of that district shall be cast in favor ot the ratification of the Constitution before it become valid, be, and the same is hereby so far mnodified that amajority of the votes cast at an election for the ratification or rejection of the Consti tution, shall be considered valid and confirming or rejecting said Consti tntion. Sirc. 2. Be it fArtlher enacted, That the several States which may be recon structed under act of March 2, 1867, and its supplements, may at time of voting upon the ratification of the Con stitution, vote also for members of Con gress, who shall be entitled to take their seats at the next session of Congress after their several States shall have been admitted into the Union, and until a new apportionment election for said members shall he according to districts as they existed in 1858 and '59, except whlen otherwise provided for, and the same elective officers who make the return of votes cast on the rati fication or rejection of the Constitution shall enumerate and certify to the votes cast for members of Congress, and give certificates of election to those whom they may deem entitled thereto. CoNvENT'rio.-Th-e Galveston News, of December 20, says the registered vote in Texas is 104,096. The white regis tered vote 56,666! black, 47,430.White majority,9,236. In 1866, Throckmorton received for Governor, 48,631 votes; and Pease re ceived 12,051. Allowing that Pease was somewhat ahead of the Radical strength in that election, it is still plain that his vote then is a pretty good indication that the Conservatives now--when the white majority in the e Hate is only 9.2.30 conJuk not reasonably hope to defteat a Convention by voting against it. Itis suplposed that thie Illinois prairies were once the bottom of a lake. Timber is found buried thirty and forty feet below the snrface--pine, cedar, hemlock, and other varieties.

IMPOIRAN'T TO SHnIPPERS OF COTTON. --T'he New Orleans I'icayune, of the 2lth ultimo, says, parties shilpping cotton to that port should see that it is $hippemd according to the requirements of the law, or else they uaty get into trouble. 11enceforlh all the taxes to be collec ted in that district will be taken up by the officers in that district. Collectors friom other districts will not be allowed hereafter to receive money in New Ot leans for taxes due upon cotton shipped to that point. The Maine palpers are comllaining of dull times in that Siate. No vessels are being built, hundreds of working muel are olit of' employmlient, and nearly all kinds of business at a stand still. A WVestern minister, who didn't know that $2t0) watches are never sold for two doll:rs, is now loud in his (leniinciationi of New York gifr. enterprises, and thinks it. wicked to imuvc;t in thitem.

'The attendamnce was rather small, many of the prmachhrs being straitened in money nmatters, and utnable to py traveling expenses. The, proceedings of the conference were marked by earmouy and good will. The next session will be held at New Iberia.

YAsIIrrGiTON, Jan. 10.--Proceedings in the Supreme Court are attracting in tense interest. The impression that the ltncl will decide adverse!y to the constitutionality of the reconstruction acts gains ground. The Kentucky election case come up in the House, and after three hours dis cussion, Judge Trimble was sworn in. The reconstruction committee had their meeting this week; they are'toler ably sure to report a new bill at an ear ly day, in accordance with directions of the resolutions introduced on Monday, by Upson and Boutwiell. The judgment of the Comlnittee is fully settled that the work of reccoustrue tion must be put more directly -iude control of Gen. Grant. They are also considering the proposition of Upson to allow the removal of the present State officers and the appointment of their successors by the reconstruction conven tions. It is confidently stated that the radi cals have agreed upon a bill requiring two-thirds of the Supreme Court to con cur before pronouuncing any act of Con gress unconstitutional. In this connec tion it is stated with equal confidence that the pending questions, involving the constitutionality of the reconstruc tion acts, will be postponed until Con gress takes the proposed action. WASHINGTON, January 9.-Several companies of soldiers have been sent from this city to the Southern States within the week to aid in preserving order. It is done by order of General Grant. In the House a petition was read from the Alabama Constitutional Csuvention praying for the removal of Gov. Patton for political difficulties. Morton called up his reoslution in structing the Judiciary Committe to renort a bill abrogating existing State Governments in the rebel States, and providing proper governments in lien thereof: GALVESTON, Jan. 9.-A meeting of the Republicans at Marshall, Texas, on ihe 31st ult., was broken up by a mob, and Judge Caldwell, the speaker, was fired at several times. lie sought refuge at post heatd-quarters. The dlisturbers of the peace were arrested by the mili tary authorities, and afterwards, under Gen. Hancock's order, taken by the civil authorities, and released on bail. NASHVILLE, Jan. 9.-There was a riot between the whites and blacks at Pulas ki, in which two negroes were killed anld five wounded, and one white man: seriously hurt. Nuw Oh'LEANS, January 4.-Ord inance passed in the Convention fixing a pcealty of 25 per cent. and 10 per cent, at month for default of payment. Article 14 of Constitution was adopt ed, as follows: The right enumerated in this title shall not be construed to limit other rights of the people not herin expressed. Articles 15,16,17, and 18 defite quali lications of the State Legislature, the length of its term, its place of meeting, &e.

Lies over. R. J. Cromwell, black, introduced a resoluticu to be interpolated in the con stitution as one of the articles, that all persons born or naturalized within the United States, except those who have taken an oath to support tile constitu tion of the Confederate States, and who have resided in the State one year, and in the parish six montlis, shall be euti tiled to vote; none of these disabilities to be removed by the Legislature until 1888. Convention adjourued without acting. The tollowing was adopted as part of article 48 of the Constitution No person shall ihe eligible to the office of Governor or Lieutennnt Governor who is not a citizen of the United States, and a resident of this State two years next preceding his election; nor shall any person be eligible to either ottice who has not attained the age of twenty-"one years. The term of oftice is four years. AnT. 50. The governor shall be inel igible for the succeeding four years af ter the expiration of the time for which he shall have been elected. ATl'. 51.

A IT. 56. The governor shall receive a salary of eight thousand dollars per annum, payable quarterly on his own warrant. ART. 69. There shall be a treasurer of the State and an auditor of public acconuls, who shall hold their respective offices during the term of four years.

The treasurer and the au ditor shall receive a salary of five thon sand dollars per annum each. The sec retary of State shall receive a salary of three thousand dollars per annum. Snider, of De Soto, offered a resola tion declaring the present State govern ment an impediment to reconstruction, and calling upon Congress to establish a temmporar- civil government. Judge Cooley thought, if the matter were thoroughly sifted, perhaps the convention would be found the greatest existing impediment to reconstruction. If it had gone to work and framed a Constitution in fifteen dayus the State could have almost been-in the Union by this time.

A Western paper says that the Cheyenne Indians have only killed three men since signing the late treaty and that was only to try the new guns presented to them by the Commissioners. A member of the Virginia "recon struct ion convention has offered a reso lution that "the property known as the Virginia Military Institute ought to be obliterated."
