was a beautital aight. The cold, clear weather
seemed to have invited everybody out; at the
sae time it orged the donning of heavy cover- c
lngU, and maay were the cloaks and sacks which
yeterday appered for the frst time. The ladies du
all looked rosy-cheeked, and walked with a spring
ing, elastic step, which Is so pleasant to behold. To
The stores were crowded with fair purchasers of
goods just arrived ; while at Moody's corner was of
congregated the usual assemblage of young men, fro
eyeing the passing ladies and evidently challeng. cit;
in admiration of their own faultless get-uo. The hot
scene was one of life, bustle and animation. It the
would have made a beautiful picture. the

TIt NE.w OsLeaNS DENTAL COLLEIGi.-This up
name may soui.d new to our reade.s, as it isa a
possible that there are many who have never heard P,
of the existence of such an institution as a D.utal of
College in this goodly town of ours, and yet fur Le
nearly a year past such a schoAl has been in in
operation in our midst. Last November a few alt
learned dentist, men who loved their a-t, and eit
were willing to sacrifice their own comfort to of
fnrther Its interests, determined to found some tb,
sort of as institution where students of dentistry ie
could obtain all the instruction necessary to ht tice
them fir the practice of the profession, without de
going to other cities to get it. The idea was carried tf
out ; a class of eight was formed, sad a course of fot
lectures Inaugurated. 1A time went on the class ho
gradually increased, till at the close of the session an
it nombered filteen young men, with very fair p,
prespecrs for the next session And now that tb,
ser~iun has commenced. It was determined to i
begin it with a series cf free lectures upon the de
art of dentistry that won!d prove of interest to
every one, befre proceeding to tnose discourses ci
devoted more particularly to the intruction of the to
students. Itwasour rood fortune, prsuant to an ,
invitation, to be present yesterday at the second vs
of theve series of lectnues. It took place in t.
room osually devoted to the chemistry elsse t uo
the school of menleine opp vrte to the Chart,' so
Htispitsl. A number of students, and some
ladies and gentlemen, attracted by the desir -;.,f
bearing a discuesion of a subject somewhat on' of be
the bea'en 'rack, assembled there. The first lec- an
tore was by Dr. J. S. Knapp, a gentleman well b
known in the city, from his protes-:onal skill. ]Dr.
Knapp commenced with a resume of the history
of the It ir 4 k,, imsaNeieie, evw, ,as
1~t7, w th eight sdents. At the close of t'u
seasion, it had fifteen students: it had conferred
fr fur diplomas, besides some honorary deg ces.
lie went on to say that there is peety of room iu li
the pioleot ion. Where there is one dentist now, as
there is occupatlos for twenty. There is a vast ar
disproportion between the re'.:i1e number of at
students of medicine and dentistry, and the coin- i
parative usefulness of the two pro, irsions. Tiim, o,
however, will set this right; meanwhile, the pres
ent small class will have the advantage of greatr ,
individual attention. I)r. Knapp then entered
into a short and very interesting history of 'he art
of dent:airy. Among certain sects of the Hndoo
the cleranirg of the teeth for an hour cach morn- o
ing, while worshiping, has always been, and is lA
now, a religious duty. The same people a mo- I
times offer their teeth as a sacrifice to the gods re
they worship. We like white teeth, and :thok the fo
beautiful. But the women part of Polynesia dye
their teeth black, while in Java only married if
women do so, it being esteemed a hign mark of hi
beauty. In Malacca, men, women and ciildren h
all dye their teeth black, and in India red teeth
are thought peculiarly handsome. So as to fr'n. w
The Malay grind all their teeth to a perfectly i
esrn edee; the Abyssinians make theirs of a
shape like a spear head, while other Africia n
tribes file thi ire like a saw. Among the anlents
were prevalent many singular ideas aboutl the
causes cf diseases of the teeth. They thoteist i
them special visita'ions of Providence; some
writers held that a subtle fluid in the tooth carted
its pain; others that a touh of a certain dwer d
would loosen a tooth in its socket ; others thatthe
only way to extract a tooth was to crt away the 8
jaw around it! Hypocrates nre crihco the burnt
bodies of three mice mxei wlh marble 1
cinrst as the beet remedy for toothache : a late as s
157'*, It is said on good authority, that frequent y a
three Food teeth were broken betore tte b:d r
t, oth was taken out. Dentistry wa- in anc'i-et
tires hereditary amongst the Egypt;sna; their
mummies show that they knew how ti take care of w
the teeth; ekulls have bteen ound in whtr b werre
teeth plugged, prlntclriy with lead. but some- 0
times wi'h gold. Arabins were goodl deit~,.

Maron ConwAY last evening transmitted to the rests

during the recent distarbanese, viz: HOw
To the Iloserable tahe Common CLncil :
Gerelmean-Herewith is transmitted the demand Rom
of A. Belot, together with certain documents t'
from E. Filleol, his attorney, claiming from the soto
city of New Orleans twenty-six thousand aight T
hundred and seventy-three dollars damages for men
the destruction of merchandise and furniture on eral
the 26th October, 1868, by a "mob or riotous as- cons
Also a demand through their attorney, E. Fil. M
lknl, of Jules Lanabere for four thousand dollars, stat
and of Victor Belot for twelve hundred and eighty pick
dollars damages for personal property alleged to '
have been " carried away and destryeld by amob I
or riotous assemblage" on the same night. whe
These demands being made upon the city proI
through me, as its representative, makes it my pL
duty to suggest the following objections to the year
payment of the respective sums: at :
1. Remuneration in such cases is predicated play
upon the fact that the city has a police force on si
ample to protect the property of its citizems, ap- who
pointed by the mayor and paid with the approval Van
of the councel. uchk is not the case now. The mad
Legislature, in adopting, and Governor Warmoth, until
in appruving the metropolitan police bill, deliber- O(
atelty deprived the city of any power to protect retu
either lite, limb or property. The whole power
of keeping the peace and protecting citizens in
the enjyouient of their rights was, by this act, 620
vetted in . board of commissioners who, in viola P'
tion of the will of the corporation, and without "''t
delerence elfner to the will or the rights of artt
tax payers. assume to supply the place of the c
former police force. Itis simply preposterous to Mon
hold the city authorities, powerless as they are, to Fel
an acccunt for the acts of rioters when it was im- - t i
possible for the mayor to take needful steps for of a
the preservation of property. It would be pilfer- all
lug the city treasury to take from it one dollar un- The
der such clrcumatunces.
2. By reterence to the assessment rolls .of the A
city it will be fond that A. Belot rendered but sum
four hundred dollais capital and money at inter- fere
-t for the year 1,,,-. No furniture, nor other deri
valuable stock in trade was returned as the sub- ure
