TUESDAY MORNING, MARCH 24. Amusements. Si. Chabxeo Theatre. Those old favor. Ites of the New Orleans public, Dir. and lira. Watkins, opened an engagement laat evening t the St Charles Theatre, appearing in "Kathleen Havonrneen," one of the few Irish dramas which is really intsreitin g and deserving of more than ordinary praise. It presents a true picture of Irish life, and depicts with singular faithfulness the various peculiarities which distinguish the peasantry of the Emerald Use. , . i i j : Kathleen is genuine, warm mmwh, impulsive Irish girl, and Terrenes just what we unsold imagine her lover to be. The play is exceedingly well wrought out, and the delightful denoument sends a thrill of pleasure through the audience that a moment before Jiad been moved to tears. The merits of both Mr. and Mrs. Watkins are so fully appreciated by our theatrical pub - lio that it is entirely unnecessary for us to write at length concerning them. We will say, however, that Mrs. Watkins has still one of the richest and sweetest voices that we have ever listened to. She rendered the simple song of " Wearing of the Green " with a pathos and enthusiasm which we have never seen equaled. " Kathleen Mavourneen " was given with most exquisite tenderness and feeling. She evidently throws her whole soul into her songs, and that she gives pleasure to her auditors is evinced by the continuous and rapturous applause which greets her. Mrs. Watkins combines rare dramatic talent with vocal accomplishments,' and without being sUgv, is perfectly at home before the foot lights. Mr. Watkins, as a character actor, has few superiors, as the audience were convinced by his personation of Tttrence O Moore last evening. The same play will be repeated this evening. We learn that the new drama, which exchanges, and entitled " Trodden Down, or the Lost Cause," is in preparation and will soon be produced. The Acadekt of Music. The principal features of attraction at the Academy last night were the "Magic Illuminated Tableaux," sent from Europe by Mr. Bid well. They were, indeed, very beautiful, and elicited unbounded applause. Harry Bloodgood, the talented young comedian, of course was the reigning star, and did and said as many funny things as one man can well do and say. The pretty Clinetop Sisters were just as bewitching. graceful as ever, and Miss Taylor sang just as sweetly. Ad. Syman brought down the bouse, as be always does; and Delahanty and Hengler, in their original songs and dances, were inimitable. There is no place where so much real fun is to be seen as at the Academy. Several lifelong misanthropes, upon going there several times recently, have entirely changed their natures, and are now genial and whole - souled gentlemen. Another good bill to - night The Opera. To - night the opera of "Faust' ' will be given, with the following excellent cast i Mepkittvpleles, Van II allien; Faust, Da - miani ; Marguerite, M'me Seguin, (for the first time). M'lle Fauschetti and Mons. Lecheva - iler will also appear in the cast There will doubtless be a fine house in attendance to see and hear M'me Seguin in the role of Marine - into, which hitherto at the French Opera has been assumed by M'lle Lambele. That portion of the opera troupe which left our city a few days since arrived at St. Louis yesterday, and gave last night the first representation of ' La Grande Ducbesae de Gerolstein.'' We hear it rumored that a portion of the troupe will go to Galveston for a few days to appear in grand opera. The Varieties Theatre. There was a good honge at this theatre last night, the occasion being the benefit of the popalar actor, Mr. Lawlor. He appeared as JSoh BrierLj in the " Ticket - of - Leave Man," and invested the character with as much merit as we have ever seen displayed in it. There wUl be another good bill to - night. The Olympic Theatre. There was a good house at the Olympic last night To bear the wild shout of applause when Lillie Beckett appears before the foot lights, and the repeated encores she receives one wonld think this fascinating little actress was the very beau ideal of a comic vocalist M'lle Louisette also receives great applaase, and her dancing is very graceful. Camminga and Porter attract then share of attention, as does Shelly and Gooding. Another good bill to - night. The Crescent Crxr Museum This popular establishment is situate immediately opposite the St Charles Hotel, and can be easily identified by the great number of banners on the outer wall. Here can be seen besides ten thousand curiosities neatly arranged in glass cases, the little woman called the "Scottish Queen," not much bigger than a pinch of anon, ana miss ieait wno, although without any arms, manages to write and sew, and embroider, with her toes. In the UDDer storv of the museum there are monkeys and birds oi au Kinas. Behefit of Mr. Van Hcfflen. This fa vorite actor and accomplished basso is to take a bene.fi t on Thursday evening next, on which occasion will be produced Verdi's "Jerusalem," srand opera in four acts. Mr. Van Ilnfflen is a most accomplished artist, and we trust to see the Opera House crowded for his uenenu Louisiana. The Jackson Parish Flag, of the 14th, says one of the best plantations in the parish sold the other day for 33 ' - j cents per acre. It also states the following : - A poor Confederate soldier of Morgan's beroio command with thirteen wounds npon him. went hobbling through our town a few days ago. He told us that he was just nine weeks out of the Ohio Penitentiary, where be bad been confined for three years. This is tbe kind of treatment poor Southern men receive at the hands of " the most magnanimous Government in the world.'' The Mound plantation of Mrs. Emily Wool - - folk, 1300 acres of land, secure from overflow, - highly improved, sold in Iberville the other day for $15,380. The Lahemont plantation, 400 arpents, sugar mill, residence, etc.. sold for $6000. A small place of 90 arpents foY $& 0. In Terrebonne, according to the Guard, of the 21st, the old white trash which used to hold the whip over the negro as overseer, etc., has secured all tbe nominations in that region. Between ex - overseers and carpet baggers, Sambo has a poor chance. j The stubble cane is coming up well, and corn is np and doing well in Terrebonne. Mr. S. Straight, the black man's friend, is rnpported by the white men also in the sugar region for Congress, as he helps planter and ficedmen alike by his free trade views. The Lafourche Sentinel, of the snme date, is also jubilant over the1 good start of the crops. The Sentinel proposes a floating rice mill with a pump to throw water over the levee lor irrigating purposes, as a good thin? for the Lafourche . Frrrr Dollars.

A guilty conscience is its own accuser, and Stanton, in his nervousness about " raids" and attempts to seize his vile carcass, has simply his guilty conscience to thank for all this. All wno know him intimately know him to be an arrant coward afraid almost of his own shadow and he readily believes the stories be has beard of late of danger to his person, and, perhaps, the capture of the entire department Sensible people, however, I need hardly tell you, ridicule such transparent nensense. There is no more danger of a raid from Mos - by than there is from the dead Metamora, and yet the usurper of tbe War Department is so fearful of an attack that the amplest preparations for defence have been made ! How much better it would be for the crueL butcher the despotic rnler (when he was in a position to rule) to leave the office he so thoroughly disgraces with his presence and fly to some unknown region, where he can be at peace, if, Indeed, such a place for his guilty soul were possible to be found ? As you are aware, the War Department business is now transacted entirely through Gen. Thomas. The President would cut otf his right band before be would issue an order or transact any business through Stanton, and the latter would rot in the department before the President would ever condescend to notice him. The vote on Ingersoll's proposition to reissue the retired greenbacks is regarded by some as equivalent to no inflation by Congress for some time to come, although this same House last week voted in a directly opposite direction, and left a strong inference that there would be an early inflation. So far as the Ways and Means Committee, to whom most of the finance measures of the House have been referred, is concerned, I can assure you that it is highly conservative en the monetary question, and it is very doubtful indeed whether the committee reports favorably open any of the numerous greenback measures that have been referred for its consideration. I learn to - day tbat the lady occupants of tbe Presidential mansion are preparing for an early departure from that residence, from which it is inferred that they, at least, regard the case of the President as" already tried and settled against him. A powerful organization is, neverthless, working here in favor of the President contingent upon one thing that he forthwith removes Secretaries McCuIloch and Seward. If he will d. this, the whiskey " ring," backed up by the opponents of Mr. Seward, promise to rescue the President from impeachment: bntit may well be questioned, strong as this influence is, whether they would be able to fulfill their promise. Snow Ball. The Mass Meeting at the National The National was crowded last evening to hear Samuel C. Beid, Esq., repeat his address on the means of restoring the commercial and agricultural prosperity of the Sonth, as well as the financial prosperity of the city. A large nnmber of ladies graced tbe front seats and the boxes, and we observed many of our oldest and most respectable merchants present, as well as a fair delegaticn of our bank Presidents, of the Boards of Brokers and Underwriters, and of the Chamber of Commerce. We may say it was one of the most select and appreciative audiences that we ever saw assembled in this city. We bave before given an outline of air. Reid's address on restoring the commerce of the Sonth. The speaker showed the condition of onr commerce before the war and at the present time. He advocated the calling of a convention of the planters of this State, to initiate a movement for establishing land banks, upon the system of the credit fancier of France, based npon the products of the soil cotton, sugar and tobacco. He urged that every effort should be made to regain the commerce of the great Valley of the Mississippi, which had been drawn to the North, by cross lines of railroads and canals, and showed that the Northwest could ship their produce, via New Orleans, to the North and European ports for less than half the freights paid to Northern railroads. He also alluded to the present condition of onr country, tbe enormous taxation, and the misrule of the Radical Congress, and interspersed his address with several well - told anecdotes which brought down the house. Tbe speaker also submitted a plan to extinguish the city debt, and raise the city money to par. He proposed to convert five millions of city notes into 200 thousand obligations of twenty dollars each, thus representing the five millions, to be guaranteed by an act of the city which shall assure the payment of the capital and interest These obli cations to be exchanged at par for city notes, large and small, without disconnt, and to bear 7 30 per cent, interest per annum, the principal and interest payable at par every month, in l . S Unrreucy. y this means the whole debt is to be extinguished in ten years. Besides the payment of the principal and interest, these obligations will be entitled to the chances of drawing premiums or prizes every month, as follows : The first drawn number to receive a prize of $20,000. The two following numbers $5000 each, the next ten numbers $"000 each, the next hundred $50 each, and the next three hundred $20, thus making 413 of these obligations drawing prizes every month to the amount of $4t,ooo. These acts of conversion and emission, and the monthly drawing, to be under the control of a board of supervisors, with the Mayor, Treasurer and Comptroller as members ex officio. It was shown tbat this plan could be attained without any more cost to the city than it would take to pay the principal and interest in ten years by the ordinary loan of 7 - 30 per cent. This plan had been adopted With great success by Russia, Prussia, Austria, and France. The proposition was received by the andience with demonstrations of satisfaction and applause, especially when it was shown that without the loss of a cent, one hundred dollars thus invested in these obligations would entitle the holder, besides receiving tbe monthly interest, to participate sixty times dnring the year in these monthly drawings, thns affording him sixty opportunities of winning one or more of the 413 prizes. The meeting was a perfect success, and at the conclusion of the address, the eloquent orator received the hearty applanse of his andience. Eligible and Desirable Brick Residence at Auction. Our young friend W. I. Hodgson, auctioneer, advertises in this morning's paper that he will sell on Saturday next, at the Auctioneers' Exchange, that very desirable and commodious three story and attic brick residence, No. 152 Julia street, being one of the thirteen buildings between Camp and St. Charles streets. This house is in good repair, is eligible to business, tbe markets, etc., is rented to a good tenant on a lease until next fall at $150 per month, and otters altogether a rare chance for an investment, and we invite the reader to peruse the advertisement of auctioneer Hodgson' in another column for fnll particulars as Jo description, measurements, terms, etc. 13P The housekeeping book is the thunder cloud of marriage. It is accompanied with the lightning of the husband's purse Household expenses in these times are assuredly "a lew," and it behooves the happy father of an interesting faniilv to take early note of every little leak which may threaten daDger to matrimonial slip. An economical cooking stove is a good thing to bave in the house, and as such, with many other good points, we would recommend the Charter Oak, sold by Messrs. Rice Bros, oo Co., sole agentB, 89 and 91 Camp street and 5G5 Magazine street, New Orleans. Gold medal awarded to the Charter Oak at the Louisiana State Fair, 18G6. Cy John Lee, of Vernon, Vt., died recently at tbe great age of 97 years. His wife, to whom he had been married for seventy years, survives him in her ninety - firsthand was able to attend bis remains to the grave. Put it Dotal - rNever attempt to illustrate the true character of a man by quoting his after dinner speeches. Any criticism is preferable to that. In onr time we bave beard tbe same man declare, in many places, that each was the " home of his heart,'' and of tbe moment that then saw him npon his legs, that it wps te " happiest in his life." BY LAST NIGHT'S MAIL. Radicate Alarmed. Washington, March 20 The Radicals are alarmed at certain Presidential movements here, in which Chase's name has been used, and Greeley was sent to still the troubled waters. The Chief Justice is indignant at the treatment of the Radical party, and positively refused to be identified with the movement in favor of Grant, which Greeley pleaded with him to do. His refusal to become a tool for the conspirators against Johnson in the impeachment trial, meets with bitter denunciation from the conspirators and other rascals. Georgia Injunction Case Scene la Coart The Supreme Court, on Friday last, gave leave to Jndge Black and others, counsel for Gov. Jenkins, to file a bill in chancery in the name of the State of Georgia, for an injunc tion against Gen. Meade, Gen. Grant and others. The following interesting and curt proceedings took place in court to - day. Regarding this bill Mr. Black said: "If the court please, in the case of Georgia vs. Gen. Grant and others, the bill having Deen filed for an injunction according to the prayer oi the bill, I ask that it now be heard by the court.'' The Chief Justice " Mr. Black, your first motion made is for process." Mr. Black " Leave has been granted by the court to file the bill, and I supposed process would issue as of course.'' The Chief Justice" The practice is for application to be made to the court to order processes to issue.'' Justice Nelson "Mr. Black, there are no rules regula ing the original jurisdiction of this I court, and the practice has been to apply - to the court at every step of the proceedings." Mr. Black" Very well. Then I move for process.'' The Chief Justice, after consultation with the other Justices, said: "We will order process to be issued returnable the first day of the December term.'' Mr. Black " Now, if the court please, we move a hearing of our application for an injunction.'' The Chief Justice " Has notice been given to the defendant?'' Mr. Black "So I understand if Bat, after consulting with Gov. Jenkins, he said : " If the court please, I am not certain that proper notice has been given." The Chief Justice" Vou must apply to the court for an order for notice to the other side of the time when the application for injunction will be heard." Mr. Black" We ask for an order fixing the time for this hearing, and we suppose that, at the utmost, not more than one week will be considered necessary." The Chief Justice 'The court will take the matter into consideration." Mr. Black " When may we expect an answer ? '' The Chief Justice, sharply ' When the court announces it" " Mr. Black, patronizingly " Oh, the court means when it gets ready. The Chief Justice " Ves, sir." Another Nltro - CIlycerene Sensation. Quite an excitement was occasioned this morning in the Senate wing of the Capitol by the discovery of two bottles labelled ' Nitro - Glycerine," which were found in a passageway near the refectory. A large crowd soon gathered around the explosives, but no one could master courage enough to touch either of the bottles until a newspaper correspondent came along, and learning what the scare was about, offered to bet $5 that it yuas whiskey instead of glycerine. He immediately picked up the bottles, drew the coik out of one, put the neck to his mouth, and, after tasting, swore that he'd like to be exploded with just such glycerine as that every day. The crowd immediately dispersed, but the correspondent Insisted on rewarding his intrepidity by keeping the two bottles of " Bourbon county glycerine." Interesting from Nashville. Nashville, March 20. Information received here this afternoon from Russellville, Ky., says that five armed men entered the bank in that town to day, shot M. D. Owen?,, the Cashier, dead, seriously wounded the Teller, and then robbed the bank of $10,000. A large crowd of armed citizens are after the robbers. At a meeting this afternoon of the State Immigration Society, composed of men of all shades of politics," resolutions were unanimously adopted, inviting immigration from all parts of the world ; discountenancing secret societies of every kind, and guaranteeing the fullest protection and freedom to all, no matter what their politics and sentiments. A number of prominent citizens of Franklin county have sent in here, imploring (ien. Duncan to send troops out to protect them from armed bands of Radicals, white aud black, who are threatening all sorts of out rages. The Celobrated Judge flanter. Memi'Iiis, March 20. The notorious Radical Judge Hunter, Brownlow's pimp, turns out to be a defaulter and jaiKJbird. Official documents furnished the Avalanche from Mercer. Ohio, where Ilanter resided in 1817, shows him np in his true light. The court records proves him to be a defaulter to the couDty while acting as trustee, to the amount of six thousand and some hundred dollars. He was imprisoned in the Celina, Mercer county, Ohio, jail in 150, for embezzlement. He served a term of one year in the penitentiary. He served out another term in the Mercer county jail for petit larceny. They are the kind of men Brownlow selects for political tools. Hunter undertook to suppress the Avalanche, but the Avalanche has suppressed Lim and his court. Bishop ot Havana Banished Destltntion in ft. Thoniai. Havana, March 20 Gen. Lersundi ha3 ordered the Bishop of Havana to be conveyed to Porto Rico by a war vessel. The Governor of St. Thomas has requested the Porto Iiiean authorities to send cattle and provisions to relieve the distress of the inhabitants. A thousand individuals were preparing to emigrate to Porto Kico. Resisting an Officer A Row. Memi - his, March 20. At Helena, Ark., yesterday, Bart Turner, Sheriff, attempted to arrest a negro, who had killed three negroes recently in the adjacent counties, when the negro drew a revolver and shot the Sheriff through the body, knocking him oft' his mule. The negro then mounted Mr. Turner's mule and fled to the hills. The negroes around the polls, getting up an outbreak on the plea tbat a negro bad been shot, enabled him to reach the bills, where he was found by a posse who had gone in pursuit. On their attempting to arrest him he again fired, wounding Mr. Sebastian. The posse held him at bay until a sqnad of soldiers arrived, who fired npon him, wounding him severely. In this condition he was carried back to Helena. Naf of the wounded were dead at last accounts. There is one kind of business which a uan can hardly picx np without a regular uaprenticeship to it. Hence Rice Bros. 5c Co., who have been raised to the hardware business, can sell better and cheaper things at their stores 93 and 95 Camp aud 5C7 Magazine than others. So too their Charter Oak stoves, of which, in this city alone, they have sup plied 15,000, which have the premium with all housekeepers, both for easy draft, good and quick baking, and all other qualities, were selected bv them because they knew their hutiuesg, and knew what stove to select for sale. Such are the men to buy your tools bnilding hardware, house larnisbing goods, etc., etc. Their Camp street stores have a front of 65 feet, with a depth of 150, and the immense building, which tbis space occupies, was bnilt for tbe hardware business for the old house of Priestley & Bein, and contains, besides the store proper, a two story warehouse in the rear for the storage of iron, tin plate, nails. heavy hardware, castings, etc., and in etore and warehouses there and on Julia street, they have as admirable a selected, full and com Die te stock of all kinds of hardware as either wholesale or retail buyers, from town or country, could wish to make their pur chases. f3P When Bishop Leightoa was one day lost in meditation in his own sequestered walk in Dun lane, a widow came np to him and said that it was ordered that he should marry her, for she bad dreamed three times that she was married to h m.

The alarm of fire given at 2 o'clock yesterday was oosasioned by a fire breaking out in the third story of the building at the corner of Canal and Chartres street, occupied by J. Bernheim as a straw and millinery goods store. The flames, however, were soon extinguished, and the damage done mostly resulted from water. Tbe Heistano case. This case, just now exciting no inconsiderable amount of attention, was tried before the Sixth District Court yesterday, but the decision was reserved by Judge Duplantier. it is possible he may render it to - day. Scene in a Street Car. Sunday afternoon, as a Jackson street car was coming down, an old lady entered it at Prytania street. Every seat was occupied by ladies with the exception of one, which was appropriated by a young man. Utterly oblivious of common decency or politeness, he retained his seat, and Buttered the aged lady to stand until another lady stood np and permitted her to occupy her seat. Such an instance of ill breeding and impoliteness could only have occurred with one wholly depraved. If his name was known, it would be given. The young lady who sat by him must nave been heartily ashamed of an escort so utterly mean and contemptible. Larceny. A man named James Johnson was arrested on the Levee, near the steamboat landing yesterday, charged with the larceny of a trunk containing wearing apparel and other valuables. He will be examined today. Charged with Larceny. A man by the name of Adolph Gaines was arrested yesterday, charged by Mrs. Ida Berthelet with the larceny of a $50 note which she had entrusted to him to have changed into small notes.

He was endeavoring to fix a water pipe, and foot slipping he was precipitated to the ground beneath. Lost his Money. A man by the name of Bibbe, who hails from the blue grass regions of Kentucky, claims to have lost $150 on the levee yesterday morning, in a very mysterious manner. I went doubtless on the principle of " now you see it, and now you don't see it." Malicious Mischief. Yesterday Serg't Gibney arrested a man by the name of Joseph Brown, on Poydras street, charged by James Reynolds with entering his marble yard, and without cause maliciously breaking and destroying seven marble monuments.

Larceny. A man bv the name of Mark Keating was taken into custody on Tchoupi - tonlas street, charged with having a lot of stolen property in his possession.

The Coroner held in quests Sunday on the body of the colored woman who died suddenly on Canal street Saturday afternoon, and on the body of a negro man wb'o'died in tbe Marine Hospital from the effects of a gunshot wound inflicted by the watchman on Gen. Lea's plantation in St. Bernard parish. Arrest of a Scsriciors Character. A man giving his name as Charles Hunter was ar.ested yesterday charged with hirkiug about the premises of J. S. Conners under circum stances that warranted suspicions of his honesty. The same man was seen about the place a few weeks since, the day before Mr. Conners's house was entered by burglars. A Bad Man. For the third or fourth time within the last two weeks Philip Kiley has put in an appearance before the Recorder on the charge of shamefully abasing and beating bis wife. This time he was given ninety days in the Workhouse. Its a great pity it couldn't have been a thousand.

Suspi cion of the deed has fallen upon a couple of negroes living close oy. Attempt at Murder A Sicilian named Albiui was arrested yesterday evening, charged with attempting to stab a vender of tobacco and cutlery on the Levee. Whether the man was in any danger of being hurt, or only imagined he was, will be determined this morning. Seizure. The Sheriff" has levied on the establishment No. 10 Basin street, by virtue of writs ot execution in his hands, to satisfy unpaid indebtedness. Like other institutions, it too has succumbed to the hard times. The Court. SuntEME Court. The case of J. II. Shepherd vs. A. J. Stewart was appealed from the parish of East Baton Rouge. It is appealed from a judgment condemning the surety on an appeal bond to pay the unsatisfied balance of the judgment against the defendant herein. Tbe rule against the surety is based on the SheritTs return in the following words : And after making diligent search and inquiry and demands of said defendant for other property to satisfy the said writ, and the plaintiff named in the said writ failing to point out other property to satisfy the same, and the said writ having expired by limitation of law is hereby returned credited as above." " This does not conform to the 727 art. C. P., which requires that " the Sheriff shall in his report declare that he has found no property to seize, notwithstanding a demand on the parties.'' He does not here say that he made a demand on tbe judgment creditor, nor show any impossibility of doing so. His language implies tbat be considered it the duty of the plaintiff to point out property without a demand being made on him. The proceeding against the surety is very summary, and before be can be reached it must appear thut all the formalities of the law in such cises have been strictly observed. C. P. .0!t, 7v!C. 72. Art. 1839. p 170. Sec. - '. 4 L. 301. 17 L. 410, 10 R 138, 13 A.2G4. It 18, therefore, ordered that the judgment appealed from be reversed, and that there be judgment dismissing the rule on Eli C. Brown, eurety, with costs in both courts. - Itecorder Gaatlael'a Conn. Joseph Jackson, Amanda Jones and Louisa Adams, arrested on TremtS street, charged with the violation of city ordinance 403, were fined $25 each or the alternative of the Workhouse for thirty days. John Flaunagan and Mary Simpson were sentenced to pay a fine of $ - 5 or go to the same institution thirty days. The case of Adolph Williams was continued for a further hearing. John Dennis, arrested by Officer Carpin on a charge of larceny, had his case continued on affidavit. The same disposition was made of the case of Antony Cantano. Theodore Stokes was amerced in a small fine for refusing to liquidate a refreshment bill. COMMERCIAL WATER WORKS. OFFICE Of SUP'T AUD CHIEF INQTBTKBR, Water Works Drt OoiimtKCiAL Bask, Sew Orleans, March L 1863. To the President and Directors Water Worka.De partment Commercial Bank: Gentlmen Ibec leave to aubmit the following Annual Repoit on the condition and management of thexe work: 1. Rivbk Work ast IsnrxxT Pipks. Thlsjoart of the Works is of primary importance. rexuUtiag both tbe quantity and, to some extent tke quality of the water. During the very low stage of the river In the paat season, apprehension were felt by the engineer of the pumping works tbat the pump might Tall to work. At the time of lowest water, however, the inlet pipe was some eighteen Inches below the smtaea and the effect, though observable, wm not aerioualy felt. The river work of piling and cribbing around tbe endaof the influent pipes ia much deaajed, and fails, in its preient condition and plan, to accomplish tbe object intended the exclusion of foreign matter rrom the pipes. In low water, especially, when the current of the river ia slack, and the opening of the inlet pipe ia near the aurtace, float - iug subatancea are drawn to its mouth in large quantities, lhej were found daring tbe pact summer at all times, but especially in the early morning after the emptying of the slaughter houaea above, and in ry atage ef decomposition. Much lot this putrescent animal and vegetable matter doubtless enters the pumpa in solution if nt In auspenalon, and must seriously affect the purity of the water. Tbis contamination takea place most extensively in low water, when there fa but a comparatively small quantity of earthy matter in auapenaion, and v hen the w ater ia apparently moat pure. Being partly in solution instead of mere meohaaieal lua - pension, it cannot be removed even by filtration. - An enlarged and improved crib work could be made to abate thia nuisance in some degree; bat nothing can effectually prevent it so long as the water ia thus contaminated within so short a dis - tarce above. The subject has been more than once before the city aod State government, but baa never reoeived tbe attention cue to its importance. To exclude solid matter, which sometimes enters the pump and endangers them and the engines, strainers should be placed over the opening of the inlet pipes. 2. Engines, Pi - p Bnuink Hoi - sks, etc. The engines and pumps are in Rood eonditior, and more than equal to any legitimate demand which ean be made on them lor the supply ol the present pipe avsiem. The power of the old engine aid the capacity of lis pumps DeiDE in accora, inty work suecessruiiy and economically, and would be amply sufficient for the present consumption of water, were it not for the exceuive aid criminal waste, which ia al most universal, and ia aa injurious to every con - Burner aa it ia to tbe company. Tbe new engine ia unf - rtonately furnished with pumpa far below its relative power. The result is a higher first coat, a heavier expeuae to run it, and a constant liability ta accidents unless extreme caution be used. It was originally calculated for a head of 150 feet of water, being at leaat double what could ever be necessary where the source of sspply is within a few ftet ot every part of the city lei el. The power ia then at least double the resistance to be overcome. Two accidents hare occurred during the year for want of attention to the ctlect of this disparity. By openiDg the valves into the reservoirs while the water is also flowing direct into the pipe system of the city, the pressure is suddenly removed, and unless the head of steam ia at the same time cut off, this ponderoua machinery move at a speed tar beyond what is prudent or safe. Instructions have bean given which, it ia hoped, will prevent future accidents of this kind. It would be economy, however, to give to this fine piece of machinery pumps at least 50 per cent, larger, which would remove thia danger, and greatly increase the woi king results at present cost. 3. Watkk Srrri.T, Di - TRinrTMS jtxn Waptk. The report ef the Assistant Engineer show the month ly and daily average quantity of water delivered lor seven months, commencing 1st June, 1H67. It doea cot appear that any record has been previously kept, so that no compariron can be made. The quantity ia more than double the average furnished to the lame number of subscribers in the cities of the United States supplied by steam, including in both what la used for extiaguishing lires and cleaning streets. Careful observatioa and investigation prove beyond question that the water was not used but was wantonly and n many caees, willfully wasted. The unavoidable loss fmm tbis cause should not exceed 10 per cent, ot the whole quantity, and in well regulated works it rarely reaches 15. When it mounts, aa it does with us, to 502per cent., it becomes of very eeri - oue moment. The only correction is to be found in a rigid sya ti in of police, inspection aud administration. At tl eir meeting ia July last, the Board of directors adopted an organizatiou and system of responsi bilitv in the water purveying and inspecting departments which, it was believed, would acom - lisb 11. e desued end. It answers that purpose luliy iu other institutions, and there ean be little il on ui will do the same here when put ia operation. Without some such system the Works can rot be made efficient or remunerative. It ts estimated from the Isest data that half the waste baa resulted from the reckless action of the lute Street Commissioner and his subordinates, they havii'g long bad the free and unrestrained use ot the fire hydrants, in violation of the company's charter. The fact seems to have been lost eight of by thece official - , that In tolera'ing and even encouraging this abuse they were consuming a large portion of the revenue of the city, mere tlisn OLe - fourth of all the stock of the compauv be'.ongiDg to that corporation. During tbe rainy season the past summer, it waa not unusual to see u any fire hydrants discharging water into the street at their full capacity, when the pavements weie abselutely overiioweu by floods of rain. Instead of good, much damage was done tbe pavements and private property by thia wanton waate. Hie change recently made in that department of tl e city government kaa made a marked improvement In thia respect. But the company ahould resume its legal conttol of these hydrants. It would be no gi eater abuse of power for the citv to tskethe control of the street lamps and allow a set ot irreeixmbible persons to keen the gas burning by day as wel' as by night. The next most important source of waste Is to be found in leaking hydrants. One of thev) small outletf. viewed by itself, seems but a trifle, but wt en counted bv the thousand, tbe aggregate is eu rmouf. Infectious reveal tbe tact that more t'.an one fourth ot all the private hydrants in ue are leaking. Accurate measurements were mnOe of a Lumber, which were repaired by the c iiujisu, and the aveiage los.s, per day, for each, ws5(ki guile us.

This calculation Is condrmrd by observations made upon tbe reservoirs bet ween the hour of 12 ai d 3 o clock at a gut, when the consumption is veiy imall, if anything. The cot of delivering water, including Interest on the cott ol the works, is about twelve and a half cents for one thousand gallons. This would five, as the lots from leakage aljne, the verv haud. - ome sum of $63. 500 Aud lor stieet department 61, 5H' Total lots by waste $125, o0 Another source of considerable loss is in the use ot v aier by non payit g consumers from the open j.i ivate hydrants m their vic.nity. and from the lire hydrants, which are accessible to alL Many ch cases have been reported, and they are known to exist in large numbers. A reduction of water rent, so as to place it wi'hin the reach of all. followed by c ose inspection and a rijiid use of tbe stop cock, wouid soon check this abuse, but Eotbing less, can do it. Jlany hydrants not paid for and reported closed, are fouLd on examination to be opened and in use. Without inspections, irequent and rigid, this abuse cannot be coirevted, especially with the many defects and deficiencies in our pipe connections, stop cocks and hydrants, outrol over them, ia many instances, is almost impossible, and in others the t aying consumer can only be supplied by allowing his neighbor the free use of water. Il some action is not to l taken in regard to lei - king hydrants, it would be economy to close thfm and refund the rem ; tLe quantity of w ater ion is much greater than the quantity used or paid for. These causes of loss cannot be entirely removed, but tre sniount may be so reduced by admistra - tton as to bring us to something like on au equality v ith other similar institutions. From an examination ot the reports of several other works incur country tupplied by steam power, it appears their revenue per JOOn gallons ot water delivered, varies from tea to fifteen cents. Uurs reaches only seven cents and a half. Could we attain their success in management, and we have had much longer experience than meat of tbem, it wt - uld add largely to our revenue, and I'tobaMy change the lov estimate now put on our wt r s. a I eliveiinj; n average of 6, 500.

Watf.u Rkntj. The water rates of the Company itqu're attention, and should be revised and improved by the experience we have gained and bv the iLformation derived from the experience of n Lei s. Aa now aatetsed, the large consumer, who uses the water as a matter of trade and m - ,.!iL g - neiaily pays much less than the absolute cost ; w hiist the small consumer, who takes it as a matter ot necessity, has not only to make good this lore, but to make up in addition the small di7i - dtnds. Some of the large consumers, from calcu - liitiois based on examination and their own sta'e - mtuta, aie believed to pay or ly from two to five tents i.er 10oo gallons, wl ich ia greatlv below the c. st of delivery. The small consumer,' on the contrary, often pays aa high aa fifty cents. Many are tlma drtven to the use of cisterns, even after the exiiet - ee of erecting hydrants, or to the frandu'ent ute of water from a neighbor's hydrant without paying. Many such instances have coma under the notice of the present acting hydrant surveyor in his inspections. To this cauae must, In a great measure, be attributed the excessive unrulier ot bydran: a reported closed. Water latts established on a uniform and reasonable batis would eoau restore moat of these closed hydrants to the active, paying liat The following comparative statement of water rates, in companies supplied by steam, will prove ii atructive : t eveland, Ohio, the lowest, represented by.. $1 00 Fart foid.

Thia ia a lower rate than the average now charged in Dew York and several ether Horth em cities. f. Ftrb Htdrajtts. The present fire hydrants, in their location and cooatruction, conform to the law chartering tbe company, bat are totally unsuitable to tbe present ahangod condition of affair. Having executed the law fully.lt cannot be expected the Company ahali gratuitously incur the expeuae of alteration, which would be large. Tnaae hydrant formerly furnished a full supply ef water for the old band machine, but the new steam fire engine cannot be supplied by the same mean. A gallon of water cannot be farced into a quart mea - aure. nor can a four inch stream be drawn through a two - inch pipe. It cannot be denied but the evil ia aerieus; the only wonder is it ahould have continue d so long. The water la close at band in great eat abundance, and only requires an enlarged opening through wbich it may be discharged. Other cities have long aince made thia change, some by large hydrants, but the moat simple and economical arrangement is the fire well a am all Iron reservoir. Into one of these wells the water ia discharged by a branch pip ot sutfiaieot else to aupply aa man; engine aa ean be used in it vioin - ity. And it is only necessary to drop the end of the hcae into the well. By the old system out one engine can draw from each hydrant, and then receives but a half supply. Tbe los which 1 often auatained at a single fire for want of a supply of water would cover the entire expense. The abolition of the present un - aightlv street hydrant, result) r g from this arrange - n eut, would benefit the company to some extent in laving the current repair and reducing waste. 6. Bkhvoir!. The present baalna, with a capacity of only 4 000,000 gallons, half a day'a aupply, are entirely too small for even the present extant of the works. A series of large subsiding reservoirs, of capacity for at least 40, 000, 000 gallons, ahould be constructed for the storage and purification of the water before it is Introduced into the city. This work oould be done for a very reasonable sum, and would soon prove a profitable investment by the increased revenue it would bring. The Mississippi water, thus deprived of the foreign matter held in mechanical suspension, 1 purer and more wholesome by far than that now collected in our citterns. If supplied in suSicient quantlt'ea and of good quality at reasonable rate, it would soon come into general use, to the exclusion of all other. The expenditure neessary to accomplish thia great improvement would doubtless be repaid in a few years by the work itself. Tbe other advantages of health, comfort and purity cannot be calculated in dollars. The vaoant battnre lota in front of the present pumping worka are well situated for this purpose, and the amount of eaith now delivered with the water could be advantageously and economically ui d in building tbe necessary reservoir. 7. Pipk Svstkx. The distributing pipe, as now laid, possess a much larger capacity than the main aupply pipe which convey the water ,to them from 'the pumpa to the basins. This deficiency, which ha existed from the earlier stages of the Worka ha fcone on Increasing annually, until it in now a very serious and costly evil. The afore of water ia daily furnished, but it is conducted with great difficulty to the points of consumption. Three connection are necessary to remedy this defect: L The one now belrg made from the pumping woika along Market and Felicity atreeta to connect with all pipea leading down town, a tar back aa Rampart street. 2. A twenty four inch main along the Levee, frem the end of the city thirty inch main on Canal, connecting with all cross pipe aafar down a Elytian Field. li. A thirty inch main along the Levee, from the eid of tbe city thirty inch main near Calliope atreet, to ronneet with the pumpiag worka The first of these works wilt soon be nniohed and in ape ration, and by its result will doubtless confirm the opinion heretofore expressed ot its importance. It will tend, also, to shew what re suit a would follow the completion of the other two. For want of thete connections the current of water in the net work of smuller pipe in the interior of the city, and especially in the lower part, has been so sluggish aa to permit a large deposit ot eaithly matter, and thus their capacity, usefulness and value are greaMy reduced. In aome cases it is apprehended the pipes are entirely tilled. This opinion is not derived from coojec ture or inference. The removal of pipe thus affected proves the fact, which is well known and now - generally provided against in other works. With these additions to the supply ayatem, the Worka would possess great capacity for exten - sitn. at small coat, ana might soon be made to include tbe w hole city. The pumping worka having fnll capacity for a larger aupply than the whole city could use in any legitimate way, no additions w t - uld be neceearv. It is essential to tbe efficiency of any system that prompt measures should be taken ti prevent entirely and permanently the deposit of sediment in t;.e pipes. Tbe quantity of this dirt now pumped up daily would appear incredible, ytero it not based on reliable data and accurate calculations. It reaches an average of no less than sixty - five tons. Much of tbis Rows out with the water, but enough remains to reduce the capacity of the pipes to a very serious extent. Snccesaiul means have been discovered and applied in many work where thia evil exists, and at a very moderate coat. 8. Fn - sHiNii Pii'E Where the flow of water is constant and tbe current rapid it ia found no de - , posit i made, and the pipea are as clean after year as when first laid, except from the effect of cl. em ical action, which ia email ; and even when a deposit is made, if not indurated or hardened, it i - t sally and rapidly removed by a temporary cur lent diiven tbrongh the pipe at increased speed. Tbis ia accomplished by attaching flushing pipe, and valves in proper locations, especially at the te minations of the pipe. A strong current ia eauily directed through any one or more pipea by opening the valves at their end and cutting oil the water from other directions. The sediment is 1 1 1 us rapidly removed, and the expense, after the attachments are made, is inconsiderable. This process would not be necessary after the me of subsiding reservoirs, bnt could not be dispensed with even then without a serious reduction iu time of the capacity of all pipe remote from the pumping works. a. Pkivatb Attai - hmf.xt to the Main Pii'E". In tbe year 1236 it was mads thednty of the Superintendent, by resolution of the Boari of Diree - tois, ' to make a record, in a book to be provided ard kept by him for that purpose, of all branoh P I p. nydiants and other fixtures erected for the supply of rrii ate families and others, which record iail designate tbe point of junction of snch branch pipe, ard the course and ciatance it runs to the li . diant or hvdrantd thereto attached, so that no i.ilicmty may at any time be found in ascertaining tbe position ot cucb pipe." A committee ot the stockholders, appointed in the year 1849 to examine Into the condition of the w i kf, rejiortt d that. no such record had been commenced up to that tine. "1 became amission has continued np to this year, and is tb . source of very m lions embarrassment. It is impossible to exercise control ever the supply of water or the revenues of the company without the information such a record can alone furnitb. Without it resort d.usi be had to ttadiiioo or to the memori. - s ol old, ignorant and inefficient employes, some of whom, I regret to report, have also proved unfaithful. Au efficient hydrant surveyor and draftsman lave been employtd to coiiect this essential information and make the recess.try records. It is a work requiring indutry, system and intelligence qualifications possessed hi an eminent degree by Co, H. Oladowski, who has it In charge. He haa found, as waa to be expected, that all knowledge of many parts of the works vaa lost, stopcocks l ad been saved over and forgotten, the course, length and connection pipea were in rrany in - stancea unknown to the oldest aervanta of the Company, or when known were regarded and preserved as valuable personal information not to be disclosed. Much time and labor were necessary, under such circumstances to unearth the buried in formation. '1 lie work is progressing well under these adverse circumstances, aud the surveys are aliout half completed, thua bringing the information into the t ::ire, wheie it can be used even before the entry ci. the permanent records. 10.

The work of laying a huge main on Market and Felicity streets to' furnish an outlet for tbe large surplus of water l.ow de'ivered by tbe pumps, by carrying it to tbe d.btributing pipes back of Magazine atreet, will m.D be couiplettd. It haa been greatlv delayed I y two unloieset n cause the low atage of water in tbe Ohio Biver, which continued np to the 1st oi January, and the constant rains here (for some vefkti after the receipt ot the pipe from Cincinnati. Tbe pipe is a new pattern, never before used in tl is city, and promises in its results to reduce the e)ni - eol laving very materially. Tha calculation of ctat for laving the present pipe of the old 1 - attern.bv tl e former SuperintendeMt, equals tbe ciiainar latof the pipe. By this nw proeef it will i,owxeetd one - fifth of that amount. From the specimens of tbe work already done, and the lest it ha stood, there seems to lie no doubt of it icn.p'ete success, both as legard economy and efficiency. In makirg the connections from this work to tbe Pijts ot pipe leading town from feiicttv street, much diltt ulty has been encountered aud consid - eiable expense baa been incurred from the exia tenee of rerioua errors in the record ot the office.
