The house was occupied by Mrs. Mary Stanton, a poor but worthy woman, who lost considerable furniture. Tho damage was slight as it was valued at only 8100. It is owned by Capt. Isaac Sturdivant. The fire caught probably from a passing engine. Some amusing scenes were witnessed. The engines and firemen completely blocked up Commercial street at that point and the Grand Trunk pas senger train was unable to pass to the P. S. & P. depot, as tho hose lay across the track. Car riages with passengers for the Boston train were also unable to pass. The anxiety of the various passengers cn route to the Boston trains caused great mirth among the bye standers. Ho beseeching or swearing, however, could induce the removal of the hose from across the track until the danger was over.

New York, May 7:—The general term of the Supreme Court, Judges Brady, Davis aud Fancherthis morning announced that they had decided to deny a motion for a new trial for Stokes. Stokes received the news of the refusrl of a trial by Supreme Court with indifference, mere ly saying to his father who was with him, “They’ve denied me a new trial, my case will now go to the Court of Appeals.” Judge Chase. The press all contain obituaries of Chief Jus tice Chase, uniting in eulogy of his integrity, ability aud spotless character. Flags every where are at half mast. His death was caused by a stroke of paraly sis which attacked him at eight o’clock yester day morning. He was totally unconscious from the lpoment of the fatal .attack till the hour of his death, and failed to recognize any of his relatives and friends. Flags on the City Hall aud other public build ings were displayed at half mast in respect to the memory of the deceased. The report of his death spread like wild fire through the city, and was everywhere received with the pro foundest regret. Surprise too was felt at his sudden taking off as it was believed bis health was recruited and that he had secured a new' lease of life, The Cheap Transportation Convention. The Convention re-assembled at the Astor House. The Committee on Credentials report ed the presence of about 100 delegates repre senting about 50 organizations. A Constitution and By-Laws was reported. It provides that the organization be known as the “National American Cheap Transportation Association" whosa object shall be the cheap ening and equalization of railroad transporta tion rates throughout the United States. It provides for a subordinate association in each State and regulates minor matters for the guid ance and government of National and State Associations. The committee on permanent organization reported the following officers: President. Hon. Josiali Quincy, of Boston; Secretary, R. H. Furgerson, of Troy, N. Y. One Vice-President was named for each State, embracing many well-known men. Gen. S. F. Hersey of Bangor, is the Vice-President for Maine. Hon. Josiah Quincy on being introduced was received with manifestations of enthusisasm. Addressing the convention, he said he had spent the larger part of his life in building rail roads, and felt very keenly the danger growing out of tho immense railroad monopolies. He appreciated tbeir great benefits, hut was aware of their danger to the people. The great grain arics of Illinois held enough to supply the cast with food, hut it depends upon one or two men to say what shall be paid for that food when de livered in the eastern cities. He thought some thing must be done to take this out of the hands of a few men. It was a matter that interested deeply the whole country, and should not he controlled by a very few, and the object of this association was to counteract this great evil. The railroads have power to bribe the legisla ture and will continue to control the laws until the people come together and assert their rights Tho rights of the railroad shareholders are not to be infringed upon but the paramount rights of tho whole people to cheap transportation must be asserted and secured. A lettor was read from Charlc3 i’rancis Adams stating that if he were younger he would most cheerfully participate in the contest for cheap transportation, but he had begun work to which he must use well the few years allotted him. In the afternoon several more delegates were admitted, and several letters were road on tho subject. M. D. Wilbur, chairman of the Committee on Resolutions, made a report. The resolutions created considerable discussion, some of the delegates objecting to the strong language used towards railroad corporations. The resolutions are prefaced with a [series of statements relative to the necessity of cheap transportation, and the first six resolutions set forth the importance of such means of com munication more fully. The following resolu tions set forth the gist of the matter before the Convention: Resolved, That it is tho duty of the hour and the mission of this Association to obtain from Congress and the different State Legislatures, such legislation as may be necessary to control and limit by law, within proper, constitutional and legitimate limits, the rates and charges of existing lines or transportation to increase where practicable the capacity of our present local in their production but general in theii , consumption, may all reach the consumer at the least practical cost of transportation, and that an arbitrary and unnecessary tax levied by the transporter over and above a fair remuneration for investment, is a burden upon the producei and consumer, that it is the part of wise states manship to remove. Resolved: That certain leading railroad eor porations of the country, although chartered t( subserve the public welfare and endowed witl the right of eminent domain solely for that rea son, have proved themselves practically mou opolies and become the tools of avaricious ant unscrupulous capitalists to be used to plundei the public, enrich themselves and impoverist the country through which they run. Resolved: That many of the railroad corpora tions have not only disregarded the public con veuience and prosperity, but have oppresset the citizen, bribed our legislatures and defied our executives and judges and stand to-day th< most menacing danger to American liberty and Republican government. : .^llat.tlu’ nrese nt system of railway ^?a^mentaaiT‘11K failed to meet the just ex SonnU,'dcrT,.u,»3s of the long sufferinj ed lwtw™,11‘dlcal>y reformed and control! eel by the strong hand of tho law both Stati vants*aueftmt master's office people'003 " Resolved, That to this end we im'oke the an of all fair minded men in all the States nf tl, Union in excluding from the hall 0f tho L^is lature, from our executive offices and from th bench and such railway officials, railway atter neys or other hirelings as prostitute public offie to the base uses of private gains. Resolved, That leaving the different section and interests that desire cheap transportatioi to work out the problem in such a manner a maybe deemed best, we earnestly invoke thei careful consideration, their energetic action an their resolnte will injregulating and eontrollin the rates of transportations and giving lemur erative wages to the producer and cheap pr< duces, to the consumer untaxed by unearne charges for the carriage. Resolved, That wo invite the peop] of the various States to organize subsid iug associations in State, county, and town t< cooperate with the National Association; tha the power to accomplish the purposes desire< rests absolutely with the suffering millions Relief is within their reach and control. Unitec action and the near future will give as certain as its need for all time and the good of all the true solution of the problem of cheap transpor tation. The following committee was appointed ti draft an address to the people:—Hon. Josial Quincy of Boston, M. D. Wilbur of Michigan Horace H. Day of New York, R. H. Ferguson of Troy, Henry Bronson of Kansas, J. A. Noo van of Milwaukee, and W. H. C. Price of New York. The convention then adjourned to meet in Washington in January, 1874, at the call ol the Executive Committee. The Civil War in Louisiana. Excitement in Brashear City. Brashear City, May 6—10 P. M.—-Great ex citement exists all over the parish Tho people are determiued to resist the forty Metropolitans who arrived here to-day. They are closely watched by the citizens, and it is said that any overt act on their part will be promptly resist ed. Contrary to ordinary usage, the citizens fraternize with the Metropolitans, hut all are on tho alert. No colored men are to be seen on the streets, and everything is seemingly quiet. Brashear City, May 7.—Eight Metropoli tans arrived this morning, making 45 altogeth er. The citizens refused them all shelter and they are stopping in small negro cabins. They have orders to go to St. Martinsville hut can get no transportation. The ferry boat here is removed aud the fish boats stopped near Frank lin and guarded by citizens. The citizens here are still determined. The Situation at St. Martinsville. Franklin, May 6—10.25 P. M.—The latest information from St. Martinsville indicates that a fight is inevitable, and will probably take place early to morrow morning. About twenty hve well mounted and well armed men have left here since night fall for St. Martinsville to resist Kellogg’s army. Great excitement pre vails. The telegraph office is crowded with anxious men. New Iberia, May 6—9.5D P. M.—Tho situa tion at St. Martinsville is unchanged. There wa3 a heavy firing on the picket line this after noon. Citizens were driving the Kellogg pick ets in. No casualties are reported. A battle may take place at any moment, ft is reported that the Kellogg army hold the bridge crossing the bayou, thus preventing an attack from the rear. New Iberia, May 7.—Firing was heard this morning. A courier from the citizens’ camp reports that three Metropolitans were killed and five wounded in a skirmish. The citizens’ pickets have advanced within two squares of the court house, where Col. Badger has concen trated his force Citizens are collecting from every portion of Attakapas. Most of the re cruits are of the better class, well mounted and generally armed with breech-loading shot guns. So far young men principally have gone to the Isr-irrlA/l mpn in thfi towns uta watahin<r negro organizations and aro preparing to frus trate them. Captains of steamboats have been warned not to transport the Motroplitans, and consequently did not bring them at Berwick’s Bay, knowing their boats would be blown up. The entire bayou Techeis under surveillance by well organized bodies of citizens. Kellogg troops can only reach St. Martinsville by fight ing their way up the-bayou. It is generally supposed that an engagement took place last night, hut no reports have been received to this hour. 'i 1,0 Prospect more Peaceful -'Federal Troops to Interfere. New Orleans, May 0—11 P. M.—Several gun stores were broken open by the mob to night and robbed of their contents. The ex citement in the city is subsiding, since it is cur rently reported that Gen. Emory has consented to send a company of Federal troops to protect the Metropolitans, who seem to be in danger at St. Martinsville. Their opponents seem to have them in close quarters. Gun Store Bobbed at lew Orleans. New Orleans, May 7.—There were no Met ropolitans on the heats last night, those re maining in the city being concentrated at the statious.

Mudges’ gun store was broken into by a mob during the night and almost its entire contents carried off, there being no policemen present to protect the property. It is understood that an arrangement has been made between the Federal officials and Gov. Kellogg by which, under the plea of en forcing civil processes against Col. De Blanche anil other leading tax resisters, the United States will to-day go to relief of the Metropol itans at St. Martinsville. De Blanche reports to MeEnery that he holds’ the Metroplitans in cheek No general engagement had taken place at last accounts. A special despatch from Iberia to tho Pica yune says that a shafrp engagement took place to-day at St. Martinsville. The police about 2.1.r> p. in. made a sortie from the town aud at tacked the forces of Col. De Blanche, who fell back before them. The police fired both solid shot and shell from cannon, but without effect. They advanced about a mile and a half be yond the town and made a stand, but retreated after a brisk skirmish before the advancing forces of Col. Dclans. Organization of the Connecticut X,?jpiain tare. Hartford, May 7 —The Connecticut Legis lature convened this forenoon and perfected an organization in both Houses. In the Senate, Hou.
