It is but natural, C weljre, that irhen this frpply is discovered Jo te wasted recklessly aiid unnecessarily, tl;e C ompany should en-depvor to put a st ; tl.ereto. Gen.

It costs r I ul ten cents per one thousand gallons to 'pun p water from the river to the r -.mvuirs ; there are in S.w Orleans ulioit cue thiuml re plups, capa' le cf discharging over 2,5(10,000 gi lom an hour sue bow the interests of t in Company must siCfer vben these pings a t a lowed to discharge Tjnr.fcessarny.

A few statistics will best elucidate the tni ni or faisity of this f tate-mcnt.

After thi sitoning it nppoars to us that the Street CorjEii.'ioner will fin! difficulty in proving tLit 'large of "inadequate supply," or if substantiated, must not the cause for this in-aticqrjvybe fastened upon his own department instead of upon the Company. We hoj?Mayor Heath, as he has in a manner bu n made a party to this correspondence, 'sill order a strict investigation into the chi rg- of w&stage of the Company's property,- i:s water." Our citizens are now very btavily taxed for this indispensable article. This ik vere burden upon subscribers, the Conipniy portly justifies by the assertion that the city wuste-s so enormous a quantity, and the exp'nst of supplying it is so great, that the cbft-g :s are as moderate as the circumstances will p-raiit. We hope to see whatever abuses may exist speedily remedied ; also to tear of a pion t reduction of water rents immediiite-ly aftt r.vards. The Tn iita Comiueuia of Dante. Sir. lonsrfellow has we understand, be-st"-vjd : uuch time and pains on his transl iti m cf the (Teat poe m that has been ma le familiar to the "JIng'ush public through the misterly traniit.iians of the liev. Mr. Cary, and Mr. Wright - f Nottingham. Whetherthe American poet Lis crnveye! mire truly the jhytiimicaJ flow of, 1 talian verse than his prcdae-assore we ha-'-e not yet been able to judge, but we do not f ujf 5se he has surpassed them in powerful und faithful rendering of the colossal iamces f sin, sorrow, an! sufT'ring thvt baucted the mind of the gloomy Fl rentine. Tn.nh.: ocs at l est are unsatisfactory, for in ell Iang.-n ig'S there are untranslatable i liomi, snd a k lirit as impossible 'to catch as the ui-rne truoh'of llichael Angelo ; bat still we enyiy a good copy. 1: .s ct rf tin that tbfj American public will apTrecin e Dante more thoroughly that his gn-nde ir has bee set before them by one of cur rathe poets. For f'tva centuries bis works have furnished all coneiptions of horror an! d?spur, with which ei'her poets or painters have sought to terrify or touch mankind. Alfieri, Metastasio, Cornnille. Lope de Vegi, M'ltan, ailS:hillr are a'! la. gely indebted to him. The " Last Judg-nert" of Michael Angelo is merely a faithful portrayal of Dante's Inferno. It is i opposed the theme of the Divine Comioed: a was furnished to Dnnte by the "is.on of Alberico," written in barbirous Latin prcse in the twelfth century. Albrico, in a trarr e, supposed himself to be conducted by S.-. 1'eter through purgatory an! bell, afterward.-! through the seven heavens, and finally to oaradise, to witness the h'ippiness of the bit ssed. He became a monk, an 1 his confef-siot; was preserved in the monastery of Monte Ccssino. This was doubtless the groundwork "for the wonderful creation that has thrillc 1 mankind by its illimitable horrors, und its brief, tender touches of tm-cqualed jn .thos. . A prcfi und and never-lifted melancholy was the m irked characteristic of the min 1 of Pante. jf u see it in his por'rait, in the deep-set, gloomy eyes, full of lurid light, and the fal, ftern moutn, that seems framing those word -j of an unimaginable woe. CtrVi ti m hanno srwrarii'i di morie. The austerity tithe cloister in that austere thirteenth cei.tury, pervades the while pom. He treati'd wi'h extraordinary treed im in it, the most distinguished personages of his times, ard the most vexed political questions. That of hvlf was sufficient ta secure it notoriety irimediatc-ly, and the profound an! subtle -all i ;ory was but a fnint veil for his ene mies who vera clearly indicated by pec;dUrity of form or f eature, some offi-e they held, or their place cf nativity. The "hateof hate anl scorn of scot-n" revelled in the pits of M ilebolge, snd cm- flesh creeps at the description of its terrors. The writhing sinner plunged into the btdliiig waves while demons watched n iih r.t retched hooks to tear his flh as sorn as lio rose to the surface of the liquid fre. Of course Dnnte gives us the bell of the century in which he lived, an! we sometimes wonder It w people believing in such horrors were tA at least frightened into a greater degree of x irtne than belonged to the Mid lie Ages. Yet, from all we can gather, vice was es mnpt.nt in those centuries of all-belief as in this oi.? of all-doubt. Injustice eertain'y is the gi-o .vth of all time and all people, ard the rl lint of the noble Florentine might suit rppicised humanity even in diys of clean r i igh s and more extensive philanthropy. He Buys -piteously in his exile: ' Wandering ever alm:t every part where this, our lan-g Tuge ext.' ids, I have gone about like a mendicant, brewing against my will the wound with which fortune has smitten rue, and which is i St puted to my ill-deserving, and not to my r?is brtune. I have, alas, been a vessel wiihout si n or steerage." The sto y of Francesea, of Rimini, d mghter of Gr.ido a Tt.lento, has been too frequently r.nd al 'y aaraphrased for us to touch upon it n.cre :h::n by mere allusion. -It is one of I ante's inwt tender and exquisite ton -hes, rud turn: the second circle driven by the storn-y 11 ftfi of htll into a profound sigh of pity. Wt forget Semiramia, Ilelen, Dido an! C leopatra, " Lurried on by their dire doom," for the iwo, whom love, guilty aa ft was, brought t one death and one eternal lamentation. Wt are glad to think that the Dirina Commedii will be more generally read and studied jn this country. It is no book to be lightly taken up, and lightly cast aside. Not thus was it written, and not thus can it understanding be read. IU every word was coined from the mighty grief of the great genius who shows us in it the depths of h:s troubled souL It is a tragedy of suffering, find its glimpses of Pnra lise are mere gleams of light on a stormy background. It would need a soul akin to Dante to give tis a trtint.lt.tion such as it deserves, but wa bail any attempt to do homage to one of the greatest poets the world has ever known. We hope llr. Longfellow will sustain his high reputation in the translation he gives the I ublic. riKOPE IKS MEXICO. It has been remarked that the cable has not 1 em very communicative as to the effect of Maximilian's decih on the other side of the Atlantic. In our opinion, the silence is omi-roca. Kapoleon ordered his court into ricurning; Victoria postponed a review; the Iendon Times gave the illustrious decease! t'ae usual obituary notice, and Francis Joseph cf Austria dispatched Tegethoff with a fleet to demand bis brother's body. From the tone in which the European press commented on the capture of Maximilian, we were led to conclude that a terrible retribution would follow bis execution a grand crusade of extermination, or something of that sort. Tbe only really important item yet received on this head is the dispatch dated London, July 10, which appears in our telegraphic column of this morning. Thnt the British Government should eon-sid. r it advisable to Uke such an es'raordi-nnry step as to request the House of Lords to refrain, for the present, from " any erpression of opinion, by resolution or otherwise, re garding the execution of Maximilian, " ap-pe ars to us pretty conclusive evidence that a "deep scrutiny" is to be ruside iito the af-fc.'T, and that it may give rise to serious complications. - AX AISTKI1S REFORM. Austria has recently taken an important step in the direction of what may bo called Liberalism in Government. Of late, we have noticed earnest and apparently well-supported etTi rts to nuke the Impeirial Ministers of S:ate responsible to the Legislative Assembly. It now appears that this safeguard of the popular liberties has been finally adopted by tbe Chambers. In the future, should the re-ferm be carried out w ith less regard to power than to sue'h. rights as the juster sense of modern polity has adjudged to be sacred, we si all hear no more of those aggressions, within their own limits, for which the Hapsburgs have gained so unenviable a reputation. A Ministry responsible to the representatives of tte people is a Ministry pledged to the inter-e.'ia cf the people. There may be, occasion ally, a pressure upon some popular right ; but the moment that pressure threatens to wraken or divert it, the responsibility of Government mav hereafter be invoke! to annul its aggressions. Austria has darkened many pages of history with the records of her glew my Imperialism. She has drawn many bitter tears from oppressed nationalities, and hi: a blasted the hopes of many struggling piv ples. But if she makes this responsibility of her rulers to the people whom they rule, a c: rtlinal article of her faith ; if she sanctioas, with the Hapsburg seal, no ficts that will not benefit those who are represented in the sit-tii.gs of her Legislative Chambers, there is a he pe that she may yet stand in the van, as she has heretofore hugred in the rear, of ptpular reform and of wise government Permission from Gen. Sheridan, we understand, was yesterday obtained for the revenue cutter Wilderne.ss to come up from quarantine to the city, provided she can show a edean bill of health. This very necessary document she is said to have. The Wilderness, in addition to dispatches for the United States, brings from Vera Cruz important state papers for Austria and other i r ign governments. Aff.xcfl to the charter of incorporation of tb: Southern Paving Company, which appears in unother column, we observe the names of many of our most entcrorh ing citizens and merchants, headed by Mr. E. J. Hart, Preside nt, end C. M. McRae Selph, Secretary. The books of subscription are open at the office of the company, No.. 75 Tchoupitoulas sheet.

Count s had beea the I mreror's most honest alvier : aail, with I in e xoeption of a few persons who J.-ttiste 1 him for bis s-mcenty aid Lis lmpemousni-ss to a brio", was muYersally beloved bvthe people. His fall therefore came on them like a thnnoVrb At ; the more so, as no asieTiible cause for his derala-ti'n could be hazarded. Even tbe Coaat himself was astotn bvl. Ae-cnstonied as he hid been to thewiywird caorice e.f a tlespntic ruler, and knowing thai in the ryes of prteh, even the honestest action may be censtmed into a treasonable desicru, be sti:i 'felt tbe ce.ns ionne8 that he had ever serve! his country faithfully, and to the best of his ability, and therefore felt, that his desra larion wis as I'njnst as his sratenoa was cruel. But it wis not so much for himself that he grieved. H" 1 ad be-fn a widower for manv years, an! of all h e rhildren none were left to hi-n s"e one daughter, Katinka, the fl iwer of his old are. It was tor her that he felt beirt-brokea. She was tbe cause tl at his tears fl iwed t.n down bis furrowed cheeks, and that his silvered head was l owed down to tbe frroun 1. 'If I were tjmte al ine ia the world, id womb n -after httle; there are not so maiv years ia 8 ore for me ; " he muttered to himae'f. 'l'nt, de ar father." said a so't vo!"e ia his ear ; "you are not alone, an 1 will n it be al -u1. See ! thfre is even yet a bright soot am in; the e'ark clones overhead :" and with these words bis deiict-ter placed in his hands a royal mandate which empowered the exile to ta'ce with him Lis (laughter and a servant into banishment. ' My child! what have you done? von sacrifice your young days anions those bleak an! I arren steeps ! No no, it cannot be." but we will draw a veil over the out-pourinsrs of the father's and danehter'a hearts. tu lice it it orly to say. that Katinka ry her tears and en-treat-es at last wrunsr a reluctant consent from her tether that she should accompany him into exile. " Tut vrhom shall we take with us ?" she asked preser tly. in a cheerful an 1 con i 1-ut voice. 'Yen may well ask. whom?" he anwerel sae'lv "yon will not fine one ann-m.' all mv .le-7 errlsnts who wonlil follow in my service. No no." he added, with a tinsre of sarcasm, u they will prefer to onafT th tokav of mvriial s-v-cesseir, to drinking the icy coll water of Jo-nisei." V i:b a confident step Katinka sped awsv on ber errsnd, feeling sure that some one at letst fniot p the nnmerous dependants of tb f im Iv. who owned tnrtnne. fame, and mav be lioe to her father, world now be wiPins to sliow his erati tnde by rwompanving him in his drear? exile.

But his devotions were disturbed by a loud knocking at the door, which he arose from bis bended knees to open. It was his only child his son Fe-lore. " I it then true, mv father that our beloved maste r is ser.te need to banishment : and that he ia to set out to-morrow ?" the young man in-Cjiiired. "Alas! mv son it is too true !" "Ard will tbe citv. the nobilitv, the townspeople, look on in si! nce while the benefactor of their conntrv is shut ont from home and hearth?" inouired the youth impetnous'v. "And what is to become ef bis daup-hter, he resumed, not waiting for anv anwr, " and who is to accompany him into his banishnv nt ?" .Test then tbe door of the co'tase opened, and Fatinka herself stood before them. " Ctood Nicholas 1 " she began, addressing the old rrn, "are none of my father's servants here?" " Nepe, Pol le lady ! " "Ahis! then we are forsaken indoe I ! But to think that not one of those who used to kneel down before him, and call htm their saviour, can lie fi nnd ready and willing to oir him this last service ! " " What ! " interrupted the old man, " do von mesp. noble ladv, to sav, that they could follow hipi but will not?" "Fven po. was tbe sad replv. "Then will I!" and h kne't down before the vonrg girl, ard rrspe tHllv ki-"J her hand. " Then will I, old as I be, with the help of my patron saintKt. Stephen, share evil and pood with bim.. For twenty vears have I lived nrder him in this cottage. Here I married, and bee e I carried out rr.v wife, when struck down by fever. Y es, I will follow him !" "Nav. good friend," replied Katinka, in a tone of p-ratitnde; "you are too infirm to undertake such a toilsome journev. I did not ref r te you. Ko. yonraee and failing strength would prove a burden rather than a cemfort to mv father." "True! ladv. I forget that," interrupted the old man ; " but I will go out myself and apeak with the ungrateful hinds." " It seems derogatory to my father's honor to bsve to ask twice," answered the ladv, iroudlv. "Maybe I yet maybe able to find one snhiently miserable to eosid r it no further addition to bis misery to follow my father, though it be into exi'e." '-Yessurely vou will "find one," now cried Feodore, emerging from the corner of the room where he bad been standing, inperceived by Katinka. "I will go ! you do not remember me, lady, but he." pointing to his father, "will be ray guarantee that I speak trulv from my hart." I ne.t know vein Feodore!" exclaimed Ka-t-nka: '"think yon I can so readily forget him who saved my life from drowning when but a child f And you will acoomnanv us ?" 'Yes, lady, that will he," said Feo lore's father, spwer:ng for him. " He will discharge bis new duties as faithfully a he ha his old ones." " Then may Cod and all his saints bb-Rs you bolh ! " excln imed Kathika, as her tenrs. fell fa-it dotvn ber cheek. A hect-c blnh passed over tbe young man's fep as hp knelt down on one knee and fervently kissed the hem of the la ly s dress.

" Thd s'le not sav 'withns?' Does not she then accomrmny the Count into exile ?
