The owners of private and public carriages and vehicles were directed to withdraw them from the streets through which the procession was to pass, after the hour of 11 A. M., and it was stated that no obstruction of any kind would be permitted in those thoroughfares. The Chief of Police, Capt. Nouenes, was charged with the enforcement of these orders.

Major General Lewis, commanding the First Division of Louisiana Militia, having accepted the invitation of the Committee of Arrangements, issued orders on the 2d December, for the volunteer companies under his command to join in the ceremonies, fully equipped for funeral service--Brigadier Gen. Augustin, commanding the Louisians Legion, Brig. Gen. Tracy, commanding the First Brigade, and Brig. Gen. Cronan, commanding the Ninth Brigade, being charged with the execution of the order.

The Banks issued notices that the day of the funeral ceremonies would be observed by them by closing their doors, and attending to no business.

On the 3d inst. the General Committee of Arrangements published their programme for the ceremonies of the 9th. We give merely the order of Procession, without details of special directions.
