" The officers of the steamheat St. Mary report that the negro assassin, August, who killed CoL Offat in cold blood, on' the 22d nit., in the parish of St. Landry, was forcibly taken from the jail shortly after his arrest, and hong to a tree on the banks of the Bayou Coartableau, in the presence of a large crowd of white people and negroes. The particulars of the fiendish assassination of CoL Offut by this negro, who has met' with such a swift retribution, were published at length in the Picayune in our issue of the 26th "nit., and are doubtless still fresh in the minds of our readers. - - Col. Offut was a native of' the parish, nearly seventy years of age,' and was greatly beloved . and respected by the whole people, and his assassination is all the more terrible to contemplate, from the fact that no cause whatever can be assigned for the perpetration of the murder. . . - - . ' ; ' - . Died in a Cab. A MAN FALLS SUDDENLY DT A FIT AND : . EXPIRES ON HIS WAY TO THE STATION. About 11 o'clock this . forenoon, . a white man, apparently about 85 years of age, was suddenly seized with a fit while walking along near the corner of Poydras and Peters streets, and fell upon the sidewalk. , . . - . He was pieked up by the policeman on the beat and placed in a cab, which was ordered to drive to the - Central Police Station. - - ' .. The . unfortunate man however expired in the vehicle before it reached Carondelet street. ' ' ! The body being searched at the station, there was found in one of the pockets of the coat an envelope .addressed X. Credo, Post Office box 443, Galveston, Texas. The envelope contained two certificates of the Mutual Aid Benevolent Life Insurance Company, 10 Camp street. ' . It appears that the deceased was: last year residing at No. 683 Annunciation street, in this city, but moved to Galveston, Texas. '! ; .: V - ' - V',j; The insurance officers say thai he has been under forfeiture in the matter of his Insurance since last year.. . Fire in First District Losa $3000. , At 5 'o'clock yesterday morning fire was discovered in a one - story frame cottage on Poydras street, between Tonti and Rocheblaye streets. The building was entirely consumed. It was owned and occupied as a dwelling by Mr. Michael Kerns, and is reported to have been insured in the Crescent Mutual Insurance Company for $1500. .No insurance upon the furniture, which was consumed with the building. The flames communicated to the one - story frame house adjoining, owned and occupied by Mr. Mahon, which, with the contents, was also destroyed. This building is said to be insured in the Merchants' Insurance Company. No insurance on the furniture. The flames next consumed the adjoining frame dwelling, - occupied . by Mrs. Ella Flernming, and owned by Mrs. Murray. No insurance. The fire next communicated to an adjoining vacant double cottage, owned by Mr. Patrick O'Meliaj which suffered damage to the amount of $250. The fire, which had its origin in a defective flue, originated in the kitchen of Mr.'Kerns'shouse. The alarm was turned in from box No. 126, located at the corner of Common and Rocheblave. streets, by the watchman of the Common Street If ailroad Company.

Warm Debate in the Senate. The Hawkins Impeachment ' . Yesterday was one of unusual interest at the State - House. There was not a large number of spectators, because the developments which were made were not h generally anticipated. ' The first excite ment arose with the report of the Committee on Elections and Registration, Senator Landry, (colored,) chairman.; As will be seen by our account of the proceedings elsewhere, "this report was in the nature of a substitute bill to that passed in the House a week ago. ,' The substitute,, as anticipated by the the Picayune, completely changed the intent of the original bill, and virtually gave us the old one, with the Returning Uoard Included. , .. - ' i There was comparatively little debate on the motion - to put the substitute through' its several readings. The Republicans were too strong,' and carried their points by numerical force. It was only on the call of the roll to put the bill on its second reading that several Senators rose to explain their votes, among them Senators Ogden, ' Goode, Robertson, White, Herwig and Sypher.' The remarks of the Senators were characterized by considerable warmth. Senator Sypher made the - remarkable expression, that Democrats foughtheir elections with shot guns; his party proposed to use artillery, and that artillery 'would be the Returning Board.

" ''I The final passage of - the bill, and the evident determination - of the Republicans to adhere to their Returning Board resort, caused considerable excitement in political circles last night.'

Mr. Hahn'a confrere, Mr. - Gracien, understood that his senior had prepared a report, and was ready to present, and it is even hinted that such a report was prepared two - days ago in Attorney General Field's office by Mr. Hahn et als. ..
