to to as so of Algiers the tributes for mighty Ctesar? This "triumvirate" representation of government may seem just, and may seem to some to give Algiers all the political rights she now possesses, but it seems to me most certain that her entire political sovereignty will finally merge into the hands of New Orleans, as did the Roman Empire into the hands of Caesar, and ere long the whole State must "pay tribute'' into the "temples" of tbis Louisiana Rome. The bill provides that the Mayor and Administrators are to be chosen by the city at largs. Two Recorders are to be chosen by tbe voters of the Third District of New Orleans. One of tbe two is to be sent over to Algiers to preside there. Elect officers in New Orleans and send them over to Algiers to preside! Tax the people of Algiers to pay the old debts of New Orleans, and to repay Algiers for this New Orleans proposes to elect her officers for her. If this is not the "triumvirate" merging into Caesar, then what is it ? Oh, thon "Imperial city," thou dost not stand on seven hills, but thou wilt rest on the shoulders of "seven wise men!" How far dost thou wish to spread thyself! Thou wilt not be satisfied till thou shalt have conquered Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli and Morocco, together with all Egypt and the ' 'famous with all her us political the to the you is
