Along Wall at. in some °Sees, you will find
a amber of firms and single names, without
soy 4ensible business attached to them ; if von
look io the Directory, opposite such names you
will generally find, "Business refused," their
real business being "note shaving" which is eon
‘sidered rather disreputable when not done in
connection with a money broking business.—
There is no reason why brokerage in business
paper, if merely done at market rates for a set
tled commission should not be regarded as an
honorable business ; but the fact seems to be that
money in that line is made mostly by taking ad
vantage of the necessities of parties who happen
to be "short." lof one per cent as commission
could not enrich a paper broker very fast. The
crafty old brokers have their own ways of draw,
ing victims into their toils. Tak© an instance
which actually happened last year, at a time
when one per cent per month was a high rate for
money. A merchant in good standing meets a
very reputable note shaver early in the morning
and says, "I want to get U,OOO to-day," "well,
call around about two o'clock ; guess it'll be all
right. The merchant comes around about an
hour before bank closes, expecting to find the
money ready ; the broker seems surprised at the
demand for money, ho denies that. ho bad made
spy definite promise ; finally says be will Pee
what be can do, but will probably have to pay
well for the money ; goes and draws 81,000 from
bank ; takes quiff. a lunch white the mereitiot
is sweating in impatience, finally comes back in
a pretended burry and says be has obtaitked the
money by great exertion at double market rate ;
viz. two per cent per month The merchant
enraged, but there is no escape ; bank shoes in
fifteen minutes and he must have the money or
allow his note to go to protest ; the two per cent
is paid. This is "note shaving."
The return of warm weather is the chief item

remain to complete the time for which her crew

has sanctioned their assumed power Ind given up
the public rule into their bands Violence has
won the stake that rascals playedlor, and our
patient and forbearing community biol confirmed
the triumph of terror and assasination by its ac.
Louisianians and citizens of New'Orleans, we
would be the last to acknowledge tiisiblack dis
grace and deep dishonor that bear upon us with'
out good reason We would stand Up to the last
of our blood and our breath to defend our city
against any unjust imputations. Nut the troth
is open—palpable--plain as noon day, that
mores of men steeped in crime parade out streets
in hroAd daylight, laughing at law and setting
our tribunals at utter defiance. Men.whose hands
are red wihb the blood of murder, c "elbow us on
street corners, flaunty the badges of office in our
faces, threaten us by deed and wird, boast of
their former rasealities and strut proudly under
the load of infamy they bear. Thesight of how-
est men is offended every day witibassaitmins
should have swung on the gallows long ago or
been consigned to the cells of ourpenitentiary
Need we racapitnlate the long, black list of
crimes—unpunished crimes—that have been
committed during the past thrite or four years?
Need we open the grave to point to the victims
of assassination! Need we bid the tears of the
children of_niurdered citizens to start anew?
Need we revive the memory of the days when
brutal, bloody terror flourished over us? Shall
we call the roll Of the honorable men of high
standing who have been assaulted while in the
act of ezereising the high and sacred right of suf
(rage? Our readers would not thank us for drawl
ing again in detail this damnable, bloody record
of crime in New Orleans. We know that...the
fanatic yells of rascal mobsstili• echo in their
ears We know that they have not forgotten
the murders of '55, '56, and '57. We are aware
that they know in person or by name the villains
that have-robbed, beaten, assaulted or murdered
the citizens of New Orleans They know by
whom, when and for what the reign of thug ter
ror was established. They know tts origin, they
know its cause, they know its abettors and its
chief actors But all the efforts to punish such
crimes have heretofOre been thwarted. Associt
ation, cunning, fraud, terror, partisanship, pri-
vate pledges or something else has always inter
posed to shelter scoundrels from the avenging
hand of the law
How long must our fair city continue to groan
under this load of unpunished crime? Is a rep-
etition of all these outrages to be invited by a
refusal to punish well known assassins? We
have much faith in re action The cup is often
filled to the brim before it is dashed aside.—
There is a time when forbearance ceases to be a
virtue; when will that time come•for the citizens
of New Orleans? The skirts of. the metropolis
of the South and the Queen of the Mississippi
when will she vindicate her fair name by dealing,
just punishment to the guilty?
This is a painful theme; we do not intend to
dwell upon it. We love justice; and hope to see
the day when itshall be meted out to the crim
inals now at large in our city. We respect law,
and hope to see the violators of law rewarded for
their rascality. We love peace, and hope to see
the hands of the disturbers( of peaeFeffectually
tied. We believe in the entire freedom of the
elective franchise, and hope to see it freely exers
eised without fear or favor, in spite of salaried
agitators and reed assassins. We arc satisfied
that the honorable, respectable, law loving men
of New Orleans are now nearly convinced that
scoundrels have had things all their own way
quite lone enough. The cup is fall!

CAPTURR OP AN ESCAPED NEGRO CONVICT
—RESISTANCE Mr ADOLITIONISTS.—A few
days ago we noticed the escape from the Michi
gnu State prison of a desperate negrb convict
named Dade. lie was traced by an officer to
Sandusky, Ohio, where the Dittoit Free firm;
skys he was arrested and lodged in jail. Dade
claimed to be a fugitive slave, and tbo abolition.
ists procured a writ of habea s rorpus and had
hint discharged.. He immediately left and was
followed by the officer to Bellefontaine, where
he was again arrested. lie still claimed to he a
fugitive slave and was again taken out by a writ
of habeas rorpros, and the eraminatinn adjourned
to enable the officer to get proof to identify him
as the escaped convict. The officer telegraphed
to Jackson for proof to identify him The abo
litionists and negro worshippers meantime gull ,
ered in great numbers to set Dade at liberty and
lynch Adams as a slave catcher, but they were
prevailed upon to wait a sufficient time to gel
the necessary evidence to prove him a convict.—
In case of a failure they expressed their inteu•
lions of putting their threats into execution
On the arrival of the train, on which the clerk of
the prison was expected, a crowd of sewn! hut
dyed collected to see the result. Fortunately for
the officer the clerk was en the train with proof
sufficient to satisfy the public that Dade was re
ally an escaped convict, and net a runaway slave,
and ho was 'returned to his old quarter*, The
negro states that lie preached a sermon, the next
Sunday after his escape, to a large audience, and
took up a collection, the audience subscribing a
sufficient sum to enable him to buy a horse, with
which to proceed atva fugitive slave.
