The Tay Bills We desire to say that the person who received the eighteen dollars, in greenbacks, to get out the tax bills of one of our citizens so that they might be paid at once, as mentioned in our evening edition of Saturday, was not an employe of the Comptroller, nor one of the gentlemen engaged in making out the bills. He was employed as a broker, and is not now, nor has he been for some time, employed in the City HalL We say this that no misapprehension may exist as to the person who received the money. Llr We join with the great body of the friends, both yonnjr and old, of Wm. O. Rogers, Esq , in lamenting the death of Mrs. Mary Martin, his wife, which took place last evening after a month's illness. It was his good fortune to be allied with one whose mind and accomplishments and graces of manner and person not merely adorned society, but gave brightness and beauty to his own path in life. She is to be buried from the residence of her mother, Mrs. Martin. 156 Julia street, this afternoon. St. Charles Theatre. Miss Alice Kingsbury, the talented young actress who has won for herself quite a name during her short engagement at the Old Drury, and who is known as the " Elfin Star," is to make her first appearance this evening in New Orleans, in the ' Child of the Savannah," a play written expressly for her, and in which she is said to ap" pear to Splendid attraction. The Academy of Music If other people were at sensibly inclined as the popular managers of this favorite place of resort, in the matter of receiving city money, there would be no good reason for any trouble about H. The result of their announcement to receive it at par for tickets of admission has the effect of filling the Academy to a more crowded extent than ever. Last night the house was filled, and everything went off most satisfactorily. The olio performances were applauded from time to time, and the " Red Crook" listened to with unmistakeable marks 61 appreciation on all sides. Dick Carroll went through his popular personation of "My Father Sould Charcoal," which carried the parquette by storm, and ruffled not a little the more quiet sea of faces in the dress circle. The Clinetop Sisters danced delightfully, and Miss Nellie Taylor charmed everybody with her full toned musical voice. To night a splendid bill, with Professor Treuder, the celebrated Hungarian prestidigateur, who will introduce his wonderful pistol duel The Varieties Theatre Mrs. Gomer - sal, a versatile pleasant little actress, who has made many friends in out city daring tbe past winter, takes a benefit to night at tha theatre, when will be produced three pieces, suited to her particular style of acting. There will doubtless, be a good house in attendance. Cr The Orleans Railroad Company have opened a nice and roomy office at No. 15 Dau - phine street, immediately in the rear of Christ's Church (Episcopal) This road start from the corner of Canal and Dauphine streets. Arrival of the United States. The steamship United States, Capt. Norton, of the Merchants' Steamship Line, from New York, arrived at her wharf, foot of St - Louis street, last night (Sunday), with a full freight and passengers. kS" We take pleasure in announcing the arrival this morning of the steamer Caddo, Capt A.

Subject, "The Irish People in America." We do not donbt but that the hall will be crowded, for beside the charitable objects of the lecture, Mr. Mullaly is a most delightful speaker.

"How fortunate the Romans were that they had not bo learn Latin Grammar, because if they had done to, ibex ould sever have found time to conquer the world." . .. . - - I i'T7T TT I - .rirr a tt I1T.1 SUCCESSOR Gen. Hanceck has been ordered to report to the President in Washineton. This order necessarily comes through Gen. Grant under the law of Congress, unless the President desired to raise the issue as to the constitutionality of that law and to give a new pretext for impeachment. There has not yet been taken from hioi the right to give orders to Gen. Grant, and through him to his subordinates. Gen. Hancock is not informed why or for what purpose the President orders him to Washington. We think it is to consult with him as to his reasons for desiring his removal, and the condition of his district. Very likely, and we trust it is so, he will be directed to return and command. He goes this evening, and takes with him only one or two of his staff. The senior officer in commission and in regular rank, as well as in brevet commission, is Brevet Major Gen. Buchanan, Colonel of the 1st Infantry, now in this city ; but he was assigned to duty somehow under his brevet as a Brigadier General, and not as Major General. Brevet Major Gen. Reynolds was assigned to duty under his brevet as such, and would seem likely therefore to have the command under the President's direction to turn it over to Gen. Hancock's "next in command.'' Under correct military usage, Gen Buchanan should be assigned to duty in his highest brevet, and with his lineal precedence, and take command. As he is now here and Gen. lieynolds in Texas, this would prevent a great deal of difficulty, delay and annoyance, besides the possibility that Gen. R. might hardly be able to reach here before he would have to go back by reason of the return of Gen. Hancock, or the assignmunt by the President of some other officer to the permanent command of the district. fe The amendatory reconstruction bill, which has iust become a law by the omission of the President to sign it, after retaining it for ten days, contains these provisions : 1. In all elections "hereafter" under the reconstruction acts, a majority of votes actually cast shall be sufficient to decide ; 2. Registered electors may cast their vote for or against the constitution in any election district of the State wherein he may have re - aided for ten days previous to the election - The proof of registration may be the production of the certificate or " affidavit or other satisfactory evidence." under such regulations as the district commanders may prescribe ; 3. The conventions may authorize elections for members of Congress and all State officers provided for in the constitution at the same time that the vote is taken on the constitution. A question might be raised whether the order of the late Convention, directing elections for officers under the constitution, which was made before the law passed which gave them the authority to do so, is valid. Indeed, the Convention had adjourned before the new act came into force. The subject will doubtless be referred to decision to headquarters, before any final determination is re - acted. The elections, if sanctioned must, however, be made under the directions of the order of the Military Commander. The Convention has no other power than to provide that they should be held. in the supplemental bill, to which this is amendatory, it is provided that: The constitution, when framed, shall be submitted by the convention for ratification to the persons registered under the provisions of the act ; All elections to be conducted by the officers or persons appointed by the com canding general ; and, To be held after the expiration of thirty days from the date of the notice thereof to be given by the Convention. The returns thereof to be made to the commanding general of the district These powers are continued in the commander of the district, modified in the particulars enumerated. The election must be held under officers of his appointment, the returns must be made to him , and, in accordance with the authority given in the Dill, he is empowered to cause the registration lists to be revised, as he has taken steps to have done in the appointment of boards for registration and for the conducting of the elections. The Stein way Pi anoo These justly celebrated and exquisitely toned pianos, which are said to be peculiarly adapted to the Southern climate, and which are warranted for five years, can only be purchased in this city from the well - known and extensive musical establishment of Louis Grunewald, 129 Canal street, right hand side going from the river. For real durability, powerful, brilliant, dear and sympathetic tone, elasticitv of touch and excellence of workmanship, 'these pianos stand unsurpassed. In proof of this it u only necessary to refer to the announcement which appears in the card of Mr. Grunewald. which appears elsewhere in our paper, that these pianos received the first prize medal at the London Exhibition in 1862, and a first prize Sold medal at the Paris Exhibition in 1867.

March 12 Pnmv in r.h Chronicle to day, admits that the Supreme vuun wm ueciae mat me reconstruction act is unconstitutional, and adds : The deeree of the Supreme Court possesses no more value than the resolution of a town meeting. I propose to otfset it with the New Hampshire election, which possesses the value of being a higher power even than the St preme Court, with its political majority of one or two old men. Protest Agalobt Cottoa Seizure. Cincinnati, March 12. The conduct of the New York collectors, in seizins' cotton arriving there from Cincinnati, because permits cannot ue icrnisneu, nas stopped the demand. A meeting of the chamber is now in aesRion. and resolutions were adopted setting forth the lujueuce ana aueuraity oi such seizures. The Great Slate Trial.

L'hittd istatet is. Jffferton Dacis. Counsel having been heard in this cause for the United States and for defendant, it is now ordered that said defendant have leave to depart hence until the fourteenth day of April next, at 11 o'clock, at which day and hour he is required to appear personally before the court according iu me con union oi nis recognizance. John C. I'nderwood, District Judge. W. H. Barry, Clerk. Davis, it is stated, would be in Richmond next week. British Points In the Alabama Case. Lord Stanley, in his speech in the House of Lords, on tne Alabama claims, took the following grounds of objection to the American proposition to include as a subject for arbitration the question of recognition of the belligerency of the Confederate States : 1. That the United States proposes to us a matter for consideration which is irrelevant to the issue. 2. That the irrelevant was one to be decided by considerations of state policy, and not of legal obligation, and therefore is incapable of receiving a legal solution. 3. That the United States Government, in their parallel cases, had absolutely refused to admit any responsibility for adopting a similar course, and that I believe no one would undertake to arbitrate a case so vague and indefinite. Correspondence Between the President and Mr. f tan b cry. The following is the correspondence between Mr. Stanbery and the President in relation to the former's resignation : Washington. March 11, 18f. M,: PresUUni When you tiret expressed to me your wish that I should engage as one of your counsel in the pending impeachment, I felt an embarrassment growing oat of my oltu - isl position. I have said that, although there was no legal incompatibility between my acting as your counsel in an individual capacity, and holding at the same time the office of Attorney General, yet as the duties of counsel in such a ease must engross all ray time during its progreea, my attention would necessarily be withdrawn for an indefinite period from the discharge of official duties. When, after further consideration, I continued to feel tbe force of the objection, and said to you I could not consent to hold any office and at the same time engage in your defence, you were further pleased, in view of the alternative, to reiterate your request that I should act as one of your counsel. I do not hesitate to meet your wishes or to resign my official position that I may perform a duty which, under the circumstances, seems to me of paramount obligation. I enclose my resignation of the office of Attorney General, and beg you, Mr. President, to notify me of your acceptance of it I have the honor to be, with great respect, yours, H. Stanbery. bel ly of president johnson. Executive Mansion, Washington. March 12. 1868. Hon. B. Stanbery, Attorney General : I - tr Sir I recognize the circumstances which seem to make it proper for you to resign. 1 appreciate fully your motives m doing so, and with deep regret accept your resignation as Attorney General of the United States. I am, with great respect, sincerely yours, Andrew Johnson. Military Item. Gen. Hancock this morning issued the following special orders : Upon the recommendation of His Excellency Gov.

This order does not necessarily nor of itself relieve him from the command of the Fifth Military District He is required to turn over his command, during his absence, to his next in command, who, it appears, is Brevet Major Gen. John F. Reynolds, who has the senior assignment to duty under a brevet as Major General. He is therefore next in rank. TELEaRAPHIO. Special to the New Orleans Picayune. WASHINGTON. Gen. Hancock Ordered to Washington. The Troubles in Tennessee. Thomas Instructed Not to Interfere Unless Requested. Washington, March 10 The President to - day issued an order to Gen. Hancock, requiring him to repair to Washington. This action of the President seems to corroborate the report, mentioned in the dispatches some days since, that Gen. Hancock would be placed in command of the Department of the Atlantic ; headquarters in this city. The expressed apprehensions of Tennessee loyalists that the political exasperations in that State would culmiaate in outbreaks requiring the intervention of Federal troops, have been the subject of correspondence between Grant and Thomas. The former telegraphed to the latter to - day instructing him to refrain from all interference unless called upon by Gov. Brownlow for assistance. The President declines to take action in the matter. - Lookee On. New Tork Associated PreBS Dispatches FROM EUROPE. London and Liverpool MarTrftiy New Tork Cotton and Gold Market.

Washington, March 15. The Tennessee delegation have no advices of unusual troubles in Tennessee. They think the scops of tbe Thomas - Grant correspondence is exaggerated and applies to local troubles, probably connected with revenue. Gen.

Thomas never saw the man before, whom he answered playfully that they would kick Stanton out Private dispatches are to be brief this week, to make room for the President's answer. The following startling fact is tent from reliable sources : Stevens's proposition to amend tbe Alabama bill by granting suffrage to all male dtisens over 21 years of age, creates consternation among Radicals. Several of the most prominent are endeavoring to induce him not to offer it, but he declares he will to - morrow, if tbe bill is before the House. Charleston, March 15.
