BALL or rTE ExueLSZon CLU AT MasONui
HALL.-The word " excelsaor" recalls Loagfel
low's poem, and so this reporter's brain we
filled with that well knowm poem, so emblamatii
of ambition. As he noosed the door the word
" try not the par the mn said " smote on h.
Smemoy, but be dil M1L pass, nod he p es
ti if. Also, when "stay the maiden said," he
did not rush franctically up an Alpine pass, boa
like a rational being remained and had a goo.
time. And as the heavy agony reporter left, the
caution to " look out for the pine tree's witherel
branch " fell not altogether unheeded on his son
sative breast. So he carefully avoided all wield
era of the" locust club," being the nearest it
semblance, and plaintively hummed to a wet
r nown air, " tro-pol-iMa 1 am deamng of
thee." prelerring the risks of garroters to the as
sults of these seo-called catodians of the peace,
JACKSON 19's BALL LAArNroar.-The time-ho
ored and stereotyped expreselone-magniflcent
splendid, gorgeous, etc.--must be discarded i,
speaking of this entertainment.
A simple tribute of unqualifed praise is more
appropriate, and Eighteen's boys will construe
our unvarnished eulogy accordingly. sMessrs. Joe
Murphy, E. Blessey, W. L. Murphy, M. J. Farrell
Maj. Thos. L. Maxwell, Col. A. W. Hunter and D,

forth and the plays selected favorable result
may be anticipated. In the list of volunteers fot

best performers of the Shakespeare Club, and it
may be presumed that the cast for " Don Caesar de
Basan " will be substautially the some as when
that club performed the same play last summer.
In thateventeur readers may expect a rendering
of this sprightly drama which will compare, not
unfavorably, with the acting of professionals.

BALL or PELIcAN HOOK AND LADDER FIRe
CoPAN Y No. 4.-The unusual stir and excite
ment of preparation created by the announce.
ment of Pelican's ball cannot but be highly
gratifying to the gentlemen managers. Perhaps
the eclat achieved by their last year's ball may in
some measure account for the present pleasura
ble anticipations. For those who remember that
happy festival, the names of such managers as
Mesrs. Frank RBawle, C. E. Lenes. G. H. Brangbn,
H. W. Montgomery and E. Lillenthal constitute
sufficient guarantee that this year's effort will in
no way be inferior.

ertion of E'ectiun of Oflicers-Colum,b Ba,

appointed hour to the engine house, the CESSeCNr
reporter met at the threshold the handsese cooa
tesance sad manly form of Mr. Tom O'Connor.
The majority of the boys, accompanied by a fine
band ot music, had gone down to H ,pe's hoose to
capture that redoubtable company, and "fotch
'em in." The interval of their absence was well
fl4yd by an examination of the trophies and deco
rrations of the feasting hall.
Conspicuous over the president's dais was
pendant a miniature of Hope 3's track. This ex
quisite little copy is the work of Charles Holm,
asuistant foreman of Hope 3, and the artistic skill
evinced by it reflected the highest credit upon
the manufacturer. Ranged around the room were
noticeable among the other decorations, the ban
ners and wreatha of the Seymour Sonthrons, that
club of masterly drill. But specially attractive
to a scientific eye was the patent nozzle made by
Mr Tom. O'Connor.
Experiment as well as theory proves its worth.
But our investigations were cut short by the ar.
rival of the invited guests and their escort. Like
the ghost of Hamlet, each member of the escort
"whore his beaver up." Shirt collars were also
erect, producing a fine effect. To the festivities that
followed, this reporter feels unable to do justice
in type, although with the knife and fork his ap
preciation was inimitable. Good fellowship and
hilarity prevaded, and the reporter does not hesi
tatp to express his preference for the hearty
"here's at you, old fellow," from one of the
" boys " over the polished and studied toasts of
the self-styled beau monde.
Tas MrTROPOLITAN PoLIcs.-h week ago one
of the writers on a daily newspaper, alter his
night's work, was proceeding homeward at a late,
or rather an early hour-say an hour after mid

newspapers. Suddenly he wu halted, when
within a few doors of his residence, by a nigbht
watchman, waho demanded to know what that was

plied in a tone not overly amiable, and informed
the "guardiao of the night" it was none of his

politan' informed the p aty referred to that, ac
cording to orders lasued b his superiors, he must
insist on his right to a civl answer, or take him,
the newapaper man, to the second District police
station. The party thus arreted stated to the
watohman his name and occupsation, and unwil
Itgly, but promptly, consented to go to the sta

ported the Scts to the officer in charge of the
statioaw, who aid: " I have nothing to do with it;

newspaper man may be Lmagined, bat the pat.
rolmen had more sense than to go to the extreme
measure suggested by his superior officer, and
being satified that he had made a mistake, re
leased his prisoner. Next day the facts were
stated, and a complaint lodged with Mr. Bradley,
the officer in charge of the SBecond District po

such an order, apologizing for the in

terday wes a gloomy day for New Orleuns. The
annonacement, at an early hour, that Joha Pee

although not unexpected eventa, and out a pall I

Mr. Pemberton was born in New erles about

nine he was promoted to the preuedency of the
association, and by his bold and liberal adminis- I
tration, maintained it as one of the leading incur. b
ance compsales of NewOrlesan. As a charitable a
man, he had few peers, and the accoutas which d
he will receive above. for the dispensations b3. d
low, should be a consolation for his family. f
Mr. Pemberton was an old school Democrat, o
aed was elected several time to the Legleataure,
and also to the seceeston convention of Louisiasa, ti
in the ordinance of which his name appears con- c
spicoously. And yet Mr. Pemberton was not a a
politician. for his name was at one time (to 1861) f
mentioned sad even urged for the candidacy of E
the Democratic party as governor of the State, a
but his unswerving resolution to confoe himself b
to bualness and the development of the commer- a
cial resources of Louisiana, cansed him to peremp. A
tortly decline the honor. h
His sound sense never failed him sad he was d
foremost to give his aid and support, physical and
pecuniary, to the most trifling enterprise, provided 1
bhis judgment dictated that his assistance should a
be lent to it. As a scholar and conversationist he P
had but few superiors; he was avenant and cour- I
teoons, and withal firm and positive ; his prejudices d
never controlled his good sense. a
Yesterday at least seven or eight hundred of the tI
litte of our population followed his remains to h
the grave. We codole with his numerou family a
in the great los they have sustained, as well as the a
whole community who have lost a man of Intel. a
lect, a gentleman and a good Samaritan, whose b
hand was ever open as day to melting charity.
LAST miuTr. about half-past eight o'clock, a Ii
burglar was discovered by one of the inmates, at

two police officers rushed up, but only in time to
fire after the retreating thief, who escaped unhurt,
leaving his coat behind him.

Oh! Mister Editor, bow proud did I feel when
I saw you had put my piecs in your paper, and I
saw how nice It looked ; and it's made a stir, I ean
tell you, for I heard Mrs. Snooks say to one of her
lady visitors this mornln', " Did you ever hear stll
of the impudence of the servant girls now-a-days?
Did you see the CBsCIENT Sunday and see that
piece signed Badsie-did you ever !" " Yes," said
the lady, " and shd said she was going to write
more if that one was printed : so, I suppose, we
will have a nice exposy." Whatever she meant by
that I don't know ; but I mene to tell you several
things, exposy or net.
Well, mother took me home from Mrs. Peters,
and in a day or two Mrs Suikes, who keeps a gro
ce'y to our corner, told mother of a lady who
wanted a little girl, and mother fixed me up again
and tooke me round to see if I'd sante. The ser
vant showed us into the dinin' room. where
Mrs. Taylor was eatin' her lunch. She was
a tolerably pretty lady, with fair skin and blue
eyes, and looked a litue spiteful and like one who
took care of number one, let who would suffer.
She never asked mother to set down, and mother's
a weakly woman, too, and not over young, either,
but talked to us while she was eatin'; sod all she
wanted wa a smart girl, who was williea'; asked
if I had a recommendation; said servate were
mighty uncertain and unreliable now-a·days, but
she guessed we could get along; sho'd give me
five dollars a month, and if I stayed six months
sh'ed give me a new dres and a pair of shoe;
and us every litte helps and times wa hard,
mother med that she'd let ma try it anyhow.
hister Editor, did you over se a perseo who,
while mighty lazy herself, ain't willin' to see a ser
vant rest a minit ? Well, that wau Mrs. Taylor for
you. She wouldn't stoop down to plck op hr
