The following letter, under date of i January 20, wis addressed by the 8eo retary of Civil Affairs to a special Com mittee of the Convention : Gentlemesa--The Major General Com masding directs me to acknowledge the receipt of youear letter of the 17th inst., and- tostate in reply that the second or dinance of the Ooustitutional Conven tion, adopted on the 4th of January, 1868, adopts a new mode for the colloc ction of the tax, and imposes penalties on defauitiug tax payers. You request the commanding general to state what his action would be should "the civil courts of Louisiana interfere with the collectors in the discharge of their duties. In this connection the Commanding General deems itunneces sary to repeat what he has already eta - ted in reply to a previous letter, con Ic cerning his authority on this subject. It - would be highly Improper for him to an r ticipate any- illegal interference of the e courts in the matter. , Whenever a case arises for the inter e position of the powers vested in the ,, Commanding General by the acts of ; Congress, he will promptly exercise a them for the maintenauce of law and ir order. Pleonty is as distinct from wastefulness i as a whole sackful of wheat from a sack with a hole in it for the wheat to run through. Anticipated pleasures often prove when they arrive, to be no pleasures just as to-morrow, when it comes, isn't to-morrow. Every man cherishes in his heart some object, some shrine at which his adoration is paid, unknown to his fellow mortals. So says an exchange, but what is that to you and me l GEN. GRANT. -The Mobile Tribune says Grant made no objection to the re moval of Ord, but he tore his shirt wide open from the hem of the tail to the col lar when he heard Pope and Swayne were to be removed. Ord is the only dis trict commander that pretended to be a gentleman. Pope and Swayne were both right bow ers in the mongrel game of reconstruc tion. It is with good reason that Grant is the choice for the Presidency of the S"LoTyal League." -_ .- -~~----- t A French paper supposes that a whale may be only an antedeluvian eardioe.

The negro is worse than sr worthless, Be cannot be made to pro-. tl duce as much as he will consume aid de- vi stroy.

Tim GRAND JURY cQUESTION.-The 58 ran uatroounsv'"'lii New Orleans Timesu has the following in l relation to the grand jury question in the parish of Orleans: The Grand Jury of the parish of Or- n leans, selected from a registry of voters provided for by the laws of the State of Louisiana, recently indicted Chas. Jor gau and Sam.n Nelson, colored men, for tl murder. Counsel for defence moved to quash the indictment upon the ground that the inquest which had found the indictment had not been chosen in accordance with the provisions of the acts of Congress providing for the reconstruction of the Southern States. Judge Howe, presiding in the crimin al court, and before whom this motion . was made, decided that the Grand Jury which brought in the bill against Mor gan and Nelson, was a legal body. This 1 a decision is based upon the ground that . the laws of the State regulating the ew e paneling of grand juries has not been 1- affected by the acts of Congress men e tioned above, and are therefore, still in . force, and will be in force until altered a or abolished by the department which is alone antlhorised under our republicad r. syEtefn of government. This decision is e- also supported by the order of the Com it imanding General, which order stated ie thant to determine who shall or who shall not be jurors appertains to the legisla tive powers of the State. he The motion to quash the indictment was, therefore, denied. Saida very good old man: -Somewh folk are always complaininig about the pWr weather, but I am very tlhauktul when I prie wake up in the morning and fnd any eaf weather at all." We may smile at the simplicity of the old man, but still his YOU language indicates a spirit that contri- eve butes much to a calm and peaceful life. ea It is wiser and better to cultivate that sea than to be contionally complaining of tra things as they are. Be thankful for Uha such mercies as you have, and if God the sees it will be for your good and Ils the glory, he will give you many.

Too many there P are in this world whose nttnachlminet to those they call friends is confined to tlh N day of their prosperity. As long s g that conti'lntes, they are, or appear to be, affectionate and cordial. But as their friend is uuder a crowd, they begin to withdraw and separate their interests from his. In friendship of this sort, the heart assuredly has never had much concern. For the greatest true friend- r ship is constancy in the hour of danger -adherenco in the season of distrI s. When your frend is cultivated, then is I the time openly and boldly to espouse his cause. When his situation is chau. 1 ged, or misfortunes are fast gathering around him, then is the time of afford- 1 ing prompt and zealous aid. When sickness or infirmity occasions him to be neglected by others, that is the op portunity which every real friend will seize of redoubling all the attention Swhich love suggests. These are the im portaut duties, the sacred claims of friendship, which religion and virtue enforce on every worthy mind. To show yourselves w-arm in this manner in the " ause of your friend, commands esteem even in those who have personal inter t ests in opposing him. This honorable zeal of friendship has, In every age, at trcted the veneration of mankind. It has consecrated to the latest posterity d the names of those who have given up s their fortunes and exposed their lives ein behalf of their friends whom they loved. A new method of steam propulsion is spoken of, as apple'ltosteamboats.

A good wife is to i man wisdom and conrage, and strength and endurance. A bad one is confusion,. weaknaess, discomfiture and despair.
