We have had the pleasure of a call from Mr. Jackson, our confrere of the Opeknsas Journal, who visits the city partly by way of relaxation, and in part in the interests of his paper.

A resolution was introduced into the Senate, yesterday, which lies over under the rules, seemingly of a highly important character. It would appear from tbe resolution that the Auditor is charged with receiving fees and emoluments in exoess of the salary provided by the constitution. The resolution directs the Judiciary Committee to inquire into the matter, and to make a report within five days. - It also directs the committee to inquire whether the Auditor has been guilty of withholding from officers of the State moneys appropriated and due for salaries and fees.

The adjourned meeting of steamboat-men and merchants, to discuss the Red River trade, was held last evening, at the rooms of the Merchants' Exchange, on Common street. It was more largely attended than the one of Wednesday, but our mercantile community did not respond to the call as they should have done. The committee of steamboatmen and merchants, appointed to confer upon a tariff of freights to and from Bed River, reported. The report was amended, by motion, so as to reduce the rates to Jefferson, so that they should be only 20 per cent, above those to Shreveport, and was finally adopted. Capt. G. B. Eouns spoke in behalf of the steamboat interest. He Bald that the owners of vessels plying en Red River were ready to do their part to regain and retain the trade of the Red River country. They had come forward voluntarily and reduced their tariff 23 oe 30 per cent. Their interests were identi fied with New Orleans, and they stood or fell with it. They had formed a corporation which was to control the movements of the boats in order to reduce expenses. They wanted the co-operation of tbe merchants. Swarms of solioitora had penetrated the Red River country, and were selling goods to eur former customers. The steamboatmen had taken immediate action, audi now awaited ta see what the merchants would do to assist them. ' In answer to the statement that a com bination was prejudicial to the interests of trade, it was stated on the part of thi Red River Packet Company that it was no combination for extortion, but for concerted action in reducing freightsJ The owners of fifteen steamboats haf1i come forward and said to the merchants! of New Orleans: Here are our boats,! make your own rates, and we will carry the goods for, you at those prices. They-had placed $750,000 worth of property at. the disposal of the merchants, and told, them to use it as they would. The mer chants would not act as liberally with their property. They wonld not allow the buyer to fix his own price. Capt. McMasters being called upon to address the meeting, remarked that tha purpose of the assembly was to exchange sentiments between the merchants and the steamboatmen. He had traveled in the Red River, and feund active end intelligent Western agents everywhere. In every town and village were to be found these solicitors, who offered, at a man's doorstep, to supply him with any article whatever that he wanted cheaper tii an it could be had in New Orleans. St. Louis, and Louisville, and Cincinnati do; not sit down and wait for the trade. They paid men to go after it. They sent an agent to the merchants of Shreveport, of Jefferson, and of every town and village in Texas and Arkansas at his very breakfast table, and supplied all his wants without any delay, trouble or expense. He found an accomplished sentleman. conversant with almost every line of business, trav-' eling as the commercial representative of 81. Louis at large, 'who could fill an order for any article, and give any information ooneerning the city he represented. Our own merchants eould do this. They should and nrust do it. There is plenty of capital, and we can compete with any other city. Concert of action on the part ' of oar merchants would bring back the trade. , i ' ... Eo ! for Opelousas.

The announcement that the celebrated American contralto Adelaide Phillipps and the equally renowned cornet player J. Levy, were to make their debut last night at Odd Fellows' Hall, drew together a numerous and fashionable audience, among whom we noticed quite anumber of artists, amateurs and connoisseurs generally. High as were the anticipations of the auditors, they were more than realized by the rich musical treat which Miss Phillipps and the members of her excellent troupe had in store for an appreciating public Mr. Edward Hoffman by way of ah overture, we think played a solo from the opera "Rigoletto," and showed himself a most accomplished pianist. His appears to be an inspiration, which distinguishes the true artist, and a mastery of the most difficult passages, that render hia play not only most attractive, but often keep the audience spell-bound, paying reverence to the genius of musib apparently personified by Mr. Hoflmaiu In Mr. Jules LVHasler, who next appeared, the audience had ample opportunity to admire a very fine barytoaej He sang most beautifully a passage fromj Meyerbeer's M Pardon de Ploermel," andl with bis well developed and finely! schooled voice he brought forward the! many beauties of this favorite creation of the great maestro, who himself, we! thisk. would have been delighted witlii the exquisite rendering of his work. Mr LVHasler was, as he deserved, reward eu with rapturous applause. lie applause had scarcely died away I when it again resounded throughout the! hall as a mark of welcome to Miss Adelaide Phillipps, who has come among us a " queen of song." She showed herself,, indeed, a marvelous warbling bird, with! a voice so tender and yet so powerful, so rich in its varied tones, so sweet and al-almost angelic in the echoes it awakens in the hearts of the hearers. Miss Poil-lipps, in her personal appearance, i charming. In her singing she is exquisite. winning at once golden opinions from' a delighted audience. She rendered Roe-) sini's cavatina, Una Voce Pooo Ffi," in : a manner that we fully concur in what anj experienced New York critic says of her' in regard to the excellent singing of this ' beautiful cavatina, with its difficult trills : " She would have wrung plaudits j from Rossini himself." Miss Phillipps was rapturously encored, and in acknowledgment of the compliment she delighted the audience with the pretty old' 8ootch ballad, " Comin' through the Bye." It will be matter of interest' for connoisseurs that the embellishments for this ballad were written by Jules Benedict for Jennie Lind. While we write, the sweet notes so sweetly sung still resound in our ears. and with them mingled the vivifying sounds of the corneto. Mr. J. Levy next made his bow before the public, and from bis instrument, the cornet, hs drew the most exquisite tones it has been our pleasure to hear for a longtime H fairly captivated the spell bound hearers. Snch a modulation and variety of tones now whisperingly low, now resounding with full force throughout the house-have not often before been heard in New Orleans. Mr. Levy played a solo from Hartmann's variations, entitled "Alexis,'' and so great was the applause that he had to reappear. He then played Schubert's " Serenade." At her second appearance. Miss Phillipps sang a selection from the "Prophet," and was again warmly applauded.

J;t i i New York, Jan. 16. Per cable it is reported that Frederick Charles telegraphs Cbxnsey's army broken up, and that its Joss is jaOgOOO in prisoners alone., The streets of Lemans are filled with eorpses. Antelope., MlssUsippi Valley Levee Company. The House on Friday passed ' An act relative to the Mississippi Valley Levee Company, and providing lor the eoa-strnction, repair and -maintenance of certain levees by said ' company, and for compensation therefoi,' ty tolls, on lands protected by said levees and the crops of said lands,'' over the veto-of Gov. War-moth, by a vote of 7 yea .to 22 nays, and sent it to the Seriate.' , ' , The Governor's objections to the bill are stated in his veto message of Jan. 2, as follows: ' My first objection is'ihat this bin gives the control of one of the most important public works in the State into the hands of private company, independent of, and La no wise subject to, the oontrol of the Government, I object to the bill, in the second place, because it takes, without any consideration, the levees already constructed and valued at no less than seventeen millions of dollars, and gives them to this company, without allowing the State even an interestin the enterprise. Should this plan be adopted. I cannot see why . the State is not 'entitled to become. a stockholder to the amount of money which her people have already expended upon the work. '. Again, there are nearly thirteen millions of acres of land . in this 8tate subject to overflow from the Mississippi, Red, Ouachita, Atohafalaya and Black Rivers. It is proposed to tax this laxd. now held or soon td be held by private individuals, five cents per acre, which wonld yield a revenue of 1850,000 per annum. This sum, of itself, will be, when the levees are once completed, sufficient to keep the whole line in repair. On the lands or real estate situated within the limits of all towns and cities in the overflowed regions, including the city of Xew Orleans and the surrounding country, an annual tax of one peeent is to be levied. The taxable property being about $150,000,000, the revenue trom this source would amount to $150,000. But, in addition to all this, the bill proposes to tax the product of the land so subject to overflow. That, on every pound of lint cotton there shall ba aa seseed Sod collected a toll ,of one-fourth -ef one cent, or ooe dollar on every four hundred: pound bales, rxaohing tn the aggregate between sixty and seventy-five thousand dollars per annum. On every pound of sagar. one-eighth of one 'cent, or one dollar and twenty-five oents per hogshead, maktag a early one hundred thousand dollars pec annum. Oa every gallon oi molafses, one-hxtf cent; thus as gre gating a total of over a million ef dollars per annum, on the products of a year, whose yield is equal to the preeA ent, and this large revenne most be continually increasijg with population and produotionx I believe that the eoaa-pany, under the provisions of this att, would, in lees than five years,' receive a revenue of four or five millions per annum. ' ' A very important; objection to this bill is, that it is in direct conflict with our constitution, inasmuch as it wholly ignores the provision requiring that taxation shall be equal and uniform throughout the 8tate. Under (this bill all the Jands subject to overflew are tsxed five oents per acre, whether worth two, five or a hundred dollars. Cotton, sugar and molasses, without regard to quality, are all taxed in the same unequal and unjust manner. Tha Supreme Court, in cession at Monroevduring the last summer, decided that a tax of one dollar per bale on every bale of cotton was unequal and net uniform, and therefore nnoonaa ttutional The offensive manner in which tbia, bill propose to collect the revenne demands your most careful reconsideration. The exemption from the operation of law of any of the principal parishes and corporations within the alluvial districts is certainly unconstitutional and unjust. 1ST k mxa ai Sparta, Wia wishing to present an organ to a church, wrote to a friend fn New York to know what ft would eould cost to get one.
