We would notify our citizens, who are leaving the city for the summer, that, by calling at our office, they may have the Picayune, daily or weekly, mailed to their address. will accept Fir We JESS itemen in charge gratefully acknowledge OT A very interesting description of national beverages and especially the ales and beers which are fast being adopted by th 1 'nited States, in lieu of the more in toxicating and less pure distilled liquors, will be found elsewhere, and is well worth reading. It is taken from the Cincinnati Enquirer, of the 16th inst. To Our Texas Si bscribers Num bers of our Texas subscribers complain of the irregularity with which the Picayune reaches them. We can assure our trieud: that the responsibility does not rest wit! us, nor with the New Orleans Post Otliee Our mails are made up and deposited in the Post Office with the punctuality thai Las always charac terized the employes of the Picayune, and Fponsibility, but 6ur ability is limited. We believe, too, the mails are. dispatched for the New Orleans Post Ollice with unfailing regularity, and this benjg so, our worthy Postmaster cau do nothing further in the premises The causes of these mail failures will be fonnd in Texas, not in Louisiana, aud they are attributable no doubt to the inexpei ki.ee of most of the new ma'l contractors, and to the difficulty of finding the right knid of n.eu willing to contract for carrying mails on some of the routes. The Post Office has be u obiiged to get along vith rather indifferent materiel, but we lave strong hopes that postal rITmis u ill be worked with much more satisfaction to the public in a very short time. - '1 he . lvhv "British Emigration," will take place on Wednesday evening, at half - past 7 o'clock. The lecture is a promising one OT The Supreme Court of the Radical State of Illinois has decided the two acts of Congress, commonly called the indemnifying acts, to be unconstitutional. These are the acts which declare that an order from the Secretary of War, or other military offi cer in command, shall be a sufficient de - ted States Marshal, under an order from President Lincoln, and carried to New York aud held there, cuutrary to the law of Congress, which provides that persons so arrested should be discharged, unless the first Grand Jury of the District Court held alter the arrest, should hud a bill of indictment. This law was discarded in the Illinois case, aud the prisoner was continued in custody under the original order. He tued the Marshal for unlawful imprison n;ent. The court below allowed the plea that the President's order was sufficient defence, but the Supreme Court, on final bearing, has decided that the acts of Congress on which the plea rests are unconsti - tionul EP We wish that those who attempt to give the Spanish spelling to the name of the sad widow at Miramar would write and print it.Carlota instead of Carlotta. The letters are never doubled in Spanish, except the letter r (r) ; for 11 is one letter. If they will give her the adoptive spelling of her name, let it be written as she would write it, Carlota. In the debate on the President's veto, Thaddeus Stevens said, in the House of Representatives: The President starts by asserting in his mestage what, if true, would support all the Son of tneBTnUeaSu operative in the conquered theoretic - ally done here is rank usurpation. I deny that the constitution is either theoretically or actually In the Senate Mr. Fessenden, of Maine Mr. Sumner, of Massachusetts, and severa other of the Radical Senators, in debate on the President's message on the reconstruction expenditures, said quite as eranhati - cally, on the other side, that the President was all wrong, because the Southern States are still States, within the jurisdiction of tne constitution. lne irresistible deduction is that if they be in the condition that Stevens affirms, the President was right there, too. Here are two voluntary confessions of the weakness ot the Radical position. Thaddeus Stevens avers that if the Senate's opinion of the status of the Southern States be the correct one, Presi dent Johnson is right in his policy, and the reconstruction laws are usurpations. The Senate declares that if Mr. Stevens's theory is the true one, the President's view of the consequences is the correct one, and Congress has been committing grave financial blunders. Immediately thereat, these two factions, so widely separate in their opinions on the essential facts, join LhVtnS dWBe to which of China is the place for a f&milv ml , n5. "i had ABOUT TH A DDE ITS STEVENS. tl.JJm. 8i.n. t Lancaster, held by the reporter of the New York Herald, was. published in that paper." It commented with leading Radicals at Washington, that it. created quite a - commotion in the party. Mr. Stevens attempted to allay it in some degree by rising in the House to explain some portions ot it. The explanation was very equivocal, consisting rather in softening the phrases of contempt he had uttered over freely, than In retracting anything he had said. It sounded very much like apologizing for having spoke what he thought in little stronger words than he now found to be pradeut. He admitted that his political opinions had been very fairly reported, but tne reporter, like that one who wrote out Ben Wade's Kan. gas speech, had caught it too literally to be agreeable when published. It now appears that the conversation was sought by Mr. Stevens for the pur - pose of having it reported. The interview was previously invited, and a short - hand reporter engaged to go to Mr. Stevens's house and take notes of what he might say. The Herald reporter published a record of what was said. The short - hand writer confirms the accuracy, except in a single particular, in which he states that he did not hear what was reported as said. . The substantial accuracy of the report is, therefore, very well established. Indeed, Mr Stevens did not seem to question it, with a good grace, in any essential point. The conclusion is, therefore, very plain that this great head of the Radicals has a very contemptuous opinion of his chief colleagues, and gloats over the recollection that he drives them to and fro, at his own pleasure. Another opinion is afso expressed, in some quarters, thttt Stevens, despising Grant, Butler and the other Presidential favorites of the various cliques of the party, really entertains the thought of being the Radical candidate himself More likely, he thinks to play the President - maker the Warwick whose word shall decide on what shoulders the Radical purple shall fall. Stevens is too old aud too feeble in health to expect to go through a political campaign and a Presidential term. He has been lately looking with some seriousness towards his latter end, and shown a strong vein of fami.ly affection, in providing where his body shall be deposited after death. He was possessed of a burying place in a graveyard, where, by theru!s of the society that owned it, ne groes cannot be interred. He threw it up, declaring indignantly that his own body should not rest in a place from which any of "God's children" were excluded. Stevens is known to be very erratic in his teligious noti ns, and doesn't believe much ,1 what the world about him believes, on the subject of the Gospel teachings of fu ture state. It is a sort of figure of speech he wishes to employ, meaning to say that he doesn't want to lie in his grave with white folks, because he wants to lie with his own family. It is, after all, a looks as t think mor hustled awi about the chance of being y at rest in some negro burying ground tha: of running for the Presid, A few days since, in speaking of theNicolson pavement, we mentioned, for preserving the wood, which is the basis it, the drying of it by the Brickley pate might possibly be an improvement whi might precede advantageously the kyan ing process employed by Nicolsou. V have since been favored with a pamphlet, describing another procoss, patented by Robbins. It is claimed for the lat'er, that it will increase the capacity ot the wood to resist abrasion. Thirproceps consists in placing the lam ber or timber o be preserved in an air - tight reservoir, tnd therein forcing the gases, evolved from coal tar by distillation, through all the pores of the wood, so as to completely permeate it. in every part. It is an improvement upon that of Bo'.hell, iu England, intended not only to coagu late the albumen, as is done by Brickley, but so to replace it with the fumes of coal tar that the fibres shall be preserved from dry rot, and the use of coal tar for this purpose is strongly commended by Dr. Ure, in his Dictionary of the Arts, supported by the opinions of many celebrated engineers. As the Nicolsou process employs coal tar chiefly in preparing the wood for being laid, this is interesting aud important. The advocates of the Nicolsou process claim that the use of the boiling coal tar suffices; but that the Robbins patent may possibly be also used to advantage and w great additional expense. t& Our telegrams from Washington, the other day, mentioned that an altercation took place on the 23d, at the Metropolitan Hotel, in that city, - caused by Dr. J. B. Sullivan, our naval officer here, having mei one Frisbie, who, it seems, was associated with R. King Cutler in the charges made against Collector Kellogg, that Dr. Sulli van, " meeting Insbie, "called him liar, accompanying the same with a slap i the face," and that the assault was "r sented " by the latter, " who struck Mi Sullivan several times before they could be separated. " We are assured by Dr, Sullivan, who has returned, that Frisbie accosted him. instead of his seeking Frisbie, and the latter, after speaking very disparagingly of Mr. Kellogg, and making averments which were declared by the doctor to be unfounded, was proceeding to say that the latter " belonged . uie Bume corrupt clique, wnen the doc - r slapped him in. the face with the hadr of his open hand, to which no reply was lade by Frisbie, except to drop his head and get out of the way. He struck no blow in return, and made no motion strike. t was a Dutchman who said his pijr no earmarks except a short tail; and it Mkl ve
