This city is, to all appearance, entering upon a new and more prosperous era in its history. It certainly is if our citizens have the enterprise to improve the opportnuities opening before them. But without the right men m positions of public trust, to direct the proper utilization of opportunities offered there can be nothing accomplished. The most practicable way of bringing good men into the iield is to utilize the machinery of party politics for that end. This has not been done here for many years. The prosperity and growth of the city have been placed at the mercy of scrub races, and the result is a harvest of incompctency and irresponsibility in high places. There will be no improvement in our officials under tbe present independent eyatem. It will be no worse, probably, because the limit of uselessneus has been reached. A. governmentof parties, where responsibility attaches to an organization, is always better than a government of mdividuala responsible to no one,—and ruled simply by personal caprice or selfish interest. At Masonic Temple Gorton's Original New Orleans Minstrels appeared to a packed house last night. This organization contains among its members some of tbe best minstrel talent in tbe country. Tbe songs, sketches and Dpecialiy acts are admirab}y given, and ibu jokes possess the merit of a considerable degree of freshness. The minstrels will continue as the attraction through tbe week.—Daily News, Baltimore, Sept. 8,1886 today MlBlUAUB UCKKSES.

Capt. Q. W. Hill, agent for the Eagle Packet Co; by permission, made a statement with reference to the petition, explaining that to grant the privilege of a warehouse between the two already on the levee would be an obstruction to river business IB general. The speaker did not oppose the project, only as to the point in question. Mr. H. C. Tatum, agont for the St.-, Louis and Central Illinois" H.. R.,! by permission, also made a statement, claiming that on account of lack of facilities at other points, caused by low water and other causes, the location petitioned .for was the best for their purpose. • •. • After remarks by Aldormen Curdie, Pates, Thornton and Bruch a vote was taken on Mr. Thornton's amendment, referring the petition to the Levee committee and Engineer with power to act.

There was a large audience present to give Mr. Polk and his company a warm greeting. The pluy has been seen here before, but n,ever to such excellent advantage as on lust evening. The plot develops Ike mischievous action of Josnph Pickles who impersonates bis brother Rev. Arthur Pickles, and involves that grave and sedate jnaividual in no end of trouble, which creates any amount of fun. Tbe ludicrous situations cause a stream of laughter at the very start, which gradually grows into a Hood and ends in a roaring torrent. It is a charming and very natural performance, bubbling with fun from first to, last. The cast; strong and evenly balanced,* presents tbe comedy in an exceedingly clever manner..

J . l- IF the Judges of elections would take occasion at the close of the count to see' that the number of votes received by each candidate is marked on a ticket : and attached to tbo outside of the ballot box for the information of the public, they would greatly facilitate matters and relieve newspaper men and others of considerable trouble. As the case is now the boxos and sealed ballots are returned to the clerk and no one has a rigbt to open them until the succeeding meeting of the Council. Hence any person wishing to ascertain the result of tbe election is compelled to skirmish around among tbo Judges and Clerks. This could be largely obviated by a little work in the way mentioned.
