'TIIE 'RUE AMERICAN. E DITED BY sRO .a t 4Im, PAITRPYI. AND so01. NEW ORLEANS: SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 1P39. -T' t.ejor sand .d .ltu1suiciplt.-We propose to glance for a moment at this collision, in continuae lion of our remarks yesterday, in which we shall take ooeasion to notice once more, the exceedingly profound suggestions of the estute editor of the Courier and the equally sensible remarks of an anonymoue writer in the Louisianian. There is claimed for the Mayor the exclusive right to appoint and remove the executive officers of the city. Also, the right and power of requiring from the Treasurer or Comptroller of either of the Monici. ptalitios, any statement he may desire, concerning ihI finances, withott a previous application to the Council; and in the event he is refused such state. ment he shall have power to remove that officer and appoint another. Also, that any long-winded and irrelevent, and superfluous address he may choose to lay before the Council shall be recorded in the journals, and be published with the proceedings of the Council. These powers eare claimed for the Mayor by the Courier, because its wire and experienced editor, thinks it less dangerous to concentrate power in the hands of one man, than to distribute it among ten-he would be less liable to exert it for selfish or personal ends-that he would have an eye single to the public good and not "enrich individuals by fat jobs, or else give a fictitious value to particulas districts by large outlays of money utinder the spe. cial pretext of improvement." The Solon of the Courier would dispense with the Council alto. eether!- Do not his words not only imply, but express as much? He would trust all to the dctlate riot wisdom of one man! Is this the true demon eratic doctrine.? The Louisianian contains the following remark able paragraph, in a communication on the same subject. We call it remarkable, for one of the editors of that paper, at least, csn'atleet the con. verse of the proposition and that a body of men are not so liable to err as one man. S"Experience, however has shown that`in.s truseed with power are too apt to abuse this trust, and every day furnishes stiking examples of men in elevated situations, who, after having acquired, by an irreproachable conduct ofyearas, well earn ed reputarion for honesty, have been unable tore. sist the temptation of applying the public money to their own see, especially when the dangerof immediate detection of such malversation was not imnendina.'r The proposition to give the mayor the right to know the condition of the finances of the Municipalities, as contenaed for by the correspondent of the Louisianian, is altogether another thing from. that which is included in the bill of Mr Hoe. It never has been contended that tie mayor had not the right to know the situation of the city nfnir, and in reinttin lieve that he exerciosd a privilege which had been guar antied to him, with justice, in the removal of Mr Cal: houn. They were convinced that the conduct of the comptroller was perfectly correct. To satisfy a prying curiosity, and an overweening suspicion that believed it "smelt a rat" when therejwas none; and which of itself could not get at the secret, but through the interpoui tion of the mayor to ferret it out, the call was rmade on Mr Calhoun for the reaponsibihi'ies of the council, and not for a statement of the condition of tile treasury, which would net have been refused. Mr t'alhoun ha ving been called on for a merely e parte sttemtent,de fared giving it until he should be authorised by the council so to do, He was removed by the mayor for diohbeying orders. and was reinstated by the council because his conduct weas approved. There weeas noth. ing which the council desired to conceal. They were unwilling to expose their reeponsibilities, witheut at the same tinme accompanying them with the ample re. sources which they possessed, wherewith to liquidate them. They were aware of tim feverishnves of an in. dividual to manifeot his great desire for the welfare ao the municipality, and they were unwilling to place in his reach, the means of injulring the credit of the Mu. nicirpality under cover of exposing abuses, without ha ving it accompauied by its nntitde. The law of 8th March, 1836, makes the Council rese pensibhl for the conduct ofits officers, in receiving and disbursing public moneys. Impressed with the convic tion that it would be unjust and oppressive to hold them responsible for the conduct of men whose ap. pointtent they had not controlled, the law provided that they should select and appoint their own olmcers. In theaold charter of 1805, it is distinctly expressed that the Council, "shall elect a Treasurer who shall continue inoflice for one year,or during the pleasure of the Coun eil." Thu Mayor had nothing to do with his appoint. ment-see section 6. The Mayor had no control over itle acts of the Treasurer, or in directing him, save "in pursuance of an order of the city Council," see section 10. The second section of the 8th March, 1836, declares' thlt each Municipality of said city, shall he governed. and its aoire adminisitered, by a council, composed of a Recorder and the Aldermen elected by the wards withit the limits thereof." Yet the wri'erin the Louisianian says: "The usual title ofacity in "The Mayor and sldermen and inhabi. ants ,e'," and "sach was and is still the title of the car. poration of New Orleans, and by this title wouldit he requlied to assert its rights if they were called in ques tion." What wooderous sagacity! If he had looked, he might have seen in section 90, "that all the powers now vested by law in the City Council of New(Orleans ahktl'appertcin to, be invested in and he exercised by the Councils f each munic ipality" and that in section 21, that "the City of New Orleans" can 0ue and be euedI and perform other acts,"so far only as such acts may be necessary for the mere purposeof liquidating theun. inished affairs thereof"--that is, the affairs left uodn. ihel when the city was divided into three nepa ae* corporate juritdictions. In prescribing tile duties and privileges of the May. or, the law of '36, section .8, says "That the Mayor may,by lodging a complaint before any section cone. cl, remove forthwith, any officer of the municipality, provided, that in case raid officer should be re-elected by said council, then the Mayor shall have no right to remove the same." But let us return to the proposition of the writer in the Louisianian. that the ".Mayor, Aldermen, and .l. habiluants i the title of he city of New Orleans, and that all husinaes must he transacted under thai title," and oee how much truth it contaliu: The Ilth section ofthe law of 'J6 says: "That each of the aforenaid corporations shall have the excluswie right to makqand enforce all public laws "nd regulations within their res pective limits &c." And'in section 15th, "That all the real property of whatever kind or description, and the revenaes arising therefrom, now esated in the MIaer, Aldermen and I.habitante .f the New Orleans, shall be vested in the respective municipalities in which the same is situated, &c." We have made this article of greater length than we intended,hut we have iflt a desire to show the grounde upon whtich the Council of the Second Municipality are charged with infringing the rights of the Mayor, and an augmentation of his powers and privileges is claimn l. The Courier and the writer in the Lnuisisnian, both claim that one man is safer timh ten-that he is not so liable to err; That Ihe will be more restrained; That he will cheek himself, better than ten could check each other-That he would have more discrimination; sounder judgment and meor hontsty. They with to invest him with the power of apoinaing four A~udred ,,~irer, and think hle would not u e the L 4 lILt-t..el utting fr. ... inc,, ap btnting power to nbdeiveehitwn interests and 1 those of his friends and parasitee and yet they are unwilling tha/three powers should be vested in a Council ltlrrl. Among thi', appointments. are the ofmcees f enmiptrollerand treasurer. We shall continue our remarks, on this subject in our neotand shew the great power which the Mayor under Mr. Hon's bill, might exereise over elections, and hew the Treasurer and Comptroller might be made Al creatures. and, as the writer in the Louisianian observes, "be silent rather han proclaiin any improper praerice when attended with somuch danger" to, the tenure of their oifesa. We shall also take up the condition of the differ. ent municipalities and ehsw how judiciously the second has been managed, and if the otherse, which are looking in every direction for props to lean on, have hot been as judiciously mneaged, it did not arise from any pernicious counsel or inter. ference from ours. If they are willing toacknow. ledge that the Mayor can exercise the appointing powers and others elaimed for him better thaenthey can, we are sorry for their imbecility aend desire no closer connecting link than already exists. The Second Municipal ty is in a most flourishing con dition and we hope and trust that the Legislature will do nothing to retard is prosperity and advance ment. T.k ariaal.- Mies Tree's benefit on Thursday night, notwithstanding the exceedingly bed state of the wea ther, was a full and deserved compliment. We cannot say much for4Mr. Knowles's last play-.the 'Maid of M.. riendorpt.' It is an ill digested and mawkish concern. Miss Tree, however, certainly made the most of it; she threw much more interest into the part, than we thought it useceptible of. Barton, in Muhldenan, again gave the audience a flea specimen .f his more peculiar style. Hi corsect conceptionsoe of his author always places him in the forward rnk of artistes, and the deep pathos of his manner, compensates much for his want of a strong voice or physical powers. The Hlunehback last night went ff very well, although we must confess we have seen all the parts, save, and excepting Lord Tinsel hotter performed. Brown is in imitable in the gentlemanly fop. We would speak of him, hlad we time; but he is deserving, a as first rate Comedian, of an article to himself-he shall have it. Miss Tree played Julia well. We ame truly sorry theat we cannot accord her unbounded praise; but, we do feel at times, ant too ofteti, a want of feeling hi her acting* -no, in her reading, the tones of her voice, alwa ), soft and dulcet, but soulless. We have pethaps been severe on Miss Tree ; but she is an actrre so lady-like, so perfect in her reldings, in meny things that we must try, like emany others to admire her in any thing, al. though agmant our better judgment. To night at the St Charles, Mis Tree, as Mre Haller, mighty tnaukilh piece of enasbility,hut 'tie well cast. At the Camp, the Ravel family on Sunday, and Forrest on Moelday. 'Tihe New York 8,ar extole a new project of using locomotives to propel ships in calms and adverse winds, by means of paddles, which unalip like wheel of a conch.' Louisiana Advertiser plessq explain. We are at a less to know how paddles can "tunship like wheels of a coach, unless they are thrown over. board, and if shipped, are taken on hon board. Or does it mean that they move on an nale I Or that they are all taken off at once I Or that they are like "the wheel of a coach when they are an. shipped", and not when shipped ? The meaning is vague asld needs illustrnatin. Lewis Tappsn has been ex.curtmunicated from the Church for having uttered charges against the fair Christian fame of the Rev. Joel Parker ! tHe was cited to appear to answer other charges., but hehad engaged a reporter to take down the proceedinge and the discussion was crushed in the bud. The only charge made by Mr. Tappan against Mr. Parker was that of neonsesteney ! L. E. L. The spirit that breathed so sweetly over the !yre is still. The voice of melody is hush ed, and will go forth like silver belle, no more. The harp, over whose harmonious s rins., she leaned,in her rapt musings, all abandon, will nev. ermore feel her delicate fingers flying over its chords. The soul of its music hah fled. The murmur of her song hath ceased. The brilliant tttte-tfefi ilirtid ed in that gloom which no sun. light ran penetrate, and which is eternal. But thememory ofthe visionary, lives in tihe sweet tidreams which she embodied and gave to immortal. ity. The sympathetie strin gs of the soft lute, ut' ter a,melancholy response to the flittina of tlhe spirit's wings that yet hover near it. Her song is not forgotton, bhut will live as lonug as there are hearts to appreciate, and taste to enjoy the brilliant and the tender and the beurptiful. "Mournfully they pass away, The dearest and the fairest " Mine Lindon had married a Mr. McLean, and accompanied her housband, who went ounnt as Gov ernor of Sierra Leone, or Cape Coast Castle. It was considered a sacrifice that one who had been formed by nature and education for the enjoy. ment of refined society, should have accepted the hand of one who would withdraw her from scenes, hallowed by the delightful associations of child. hood, and the memoriesofold friendships. It oas a sacrifice to sever these ties, and hear her tfl to that unhappy country, :where whatever might be the domestic eomforts which surrounded her, could only furnish such food for contemplation as would chase away the fairy visions which tenant a brighter and happier climate. How beautifully ha abshe herself told this, in some lines on the grave nfa young Egliish stranger, at Shuher, a small town in 4 wild part of Jeypore. "Tia well that youth has hopes, . That gladden with the future, present hours, Or else how sorrowful would seem the time Which parts the young bird from its parent neat, To wing its passage through the dreary world. Alsa! hope is not prophecy;-we dream, Buot rarely does the glad fulfilment comet We leave our land and we return no more, Or come again tile weary and the wern. * C S- *., I'd rather share the lowest destiny That dares not look beyond the presenl day, But treada on native ground, breathes native air, Than wint the wealth of worlds beyond the wave, And pine and perish 'neath a foreign sky." We had scarcely heard of Mrs. McLe an's reaehing her destination, before the painful intel 0 ligence came, that she had sunk under the dele- b ierious influences of t he climate, It will be a mel- 0 ancholy pleasure to glante over the outpourings of d hiergirlish heart, when in its untamed freshnsaas, she swept the lyre; and to trace the maturity of her thought in her later productions. Bright onaes have died, and their memories have been mourn ' ed, but the"tomb builder, Time" is daily erecting g narrow prison-house for some new victim. Thechanteriatics of Miss Landon'a writings were grace and elegance-a refinement in the a rone of sentiment and the arrangement of lan. gunge. If she did not frequently reach the subl. I] lime, she woasl.ayeahoveecommon-place. Sithe pdlsessed a vivid fancy, delicate; and reflecling b wellproportioned images. Her versification was smooth and unconstrained--the themes for her muse were chsoen with a refined taste, and were such as ean bled her to play upon the heart-so in. i strument on which her skill was seldom, tried inii amin. She had saarcely reached the meridian of E her fame, when she S"Dropt trum the zenith like a falling star," tl whose liare waned not, to its sudden go'ing out, and whose etreaming light will lung be remember. od, after it has disappeared. Hlow beautifully appropriate to her own destiny are these sweet verses, which were dedicated by b her to one wtho like herself, had been blessed a spir it of poi sy, and who was also garnered by the uni. h versol reaper, while yet the hues of youth had not ic passed away.
