The colored members of the Legislature
do not seem to take kindly to the proposition
to give the appointment of mnicpal ontfficers
to the governor. They have been humbugged
once by that oolal--o they declare; and
they fancy that they may be humbugged
again. Hence the governor, so it is said,
sent for a number of the leading colored
politicians-not collectively, but separately
and promised faithfully to give them a fair
showing the next time. These persons sub
sequently hld a meeting and compared
notes, when it was discovered that the same
oiee had been promised to eight of them.
What effect this revelation may have on their
attitude toward the Bay charter, we cannot
conjecture; but it certainly will not augment

The Diocesan Convention of the Prolsstat
Episcopal Church elosed its namnnl sesioa yesur
day, after three days of labor. The atMeedlee
on the part of the clergy was large, embracing
the rector of nearly every parish in the diocese,
aend composing a btdy of divinse a whom the
Episcopal Chrch my fl a justifiable cofi
dense are pride. The preeedling were
mased with harmesy sad as evideat desle to
forward, by a combined etsrt, the ease of
the church throughout the douese; to instruet
the young, provie for the seedy, uad ssamas
tis sad perfet the misinsary labore is the
more mote sections where parishes have not
been regularly estalished. The question of the
religious education of the colored race onem up
sad was dismased, the master being finally left
to the discretion of each motor in his respective
pariah. Arrageaents were perfected for a more
thorough statlestal report of the annual labors of
clergymen, ad the salary of the episoopate was
ancreased from $4000 to $5000, the assesments
therefor being proportionally distributed. The
conveation adjourned to meet on Asoension Day,
Any one who 'huas ever hoard anything of the
Mardi Grs festivities In lew Orleans has heard,
in connection with them, of the great mask ball
which annually winds up the carntral at the St.
Charles Theater. It s a fixture, a landmark, a
time-honored custom; and an anusement-seker,
on Mardi Gras night, would as moon think of find
lng the City Hall walking dowan t. Charles mose,
upside down, as to pass the doorways of the Old
Drury, and not find a blaze of light, and a volume
of enticing music issing forth therefrom upon the
wistful goaser and listeners without.
Well, this year, Major Bob Strong and a number
of others, all of them genlal souls, determined, as
managers, not that there should be the usual ball
given-that was a matter of course-but that none
of the festivities chronicled on pat oocaslons
should surpass in seat and brilliancy those which
ushered in at the St. Charles Theater the forty
days of fasting in 1869.
Their determination one made, to work they
went with a will, and tickets went off like hot
cakes, while hundreds, in eager anticipation,
awaited the festive gathering. On that night
"'After Dark" was played, but It was rushed
through, for there was tempting enjoyment be
yead, and little feet were pattering in Impatient
eagerness to begin the dance. Presto-change.
The theater soon became a ball room encircled
with tiers, from which spectators might look down
upon the merriest of scenes. The orchestra took
up its poution for the night at one end of the
dress circle, the guests began pouring in.
meaked, dominoed, disguised or costumed In
every imaginable way; the music struck up, and
lo! the ball was under full headway-the man
ager's determination was realised.
What a scene It was to one looking down upon
the floor from the dress circle! How many light
hearts, how many flirtations, how many covert
intents there were concealed beneath that mass of
humanity whleh, arrayed in all the colors of the
rainbow, whirled incessantly hither and thither !
How many eyes were turned toward the spot
where eat fair little Lotta evidently enjoying the
spectacle to view which she had postponed her
departure-how many amusing mistakes occurred
under the form of supposed recognitions; how as
late as two o'clock in the morning, new guests
were constantly coming in-how for a few
moments General Sherman and his party looked
in to get a genuine Idea of how the carnival winds
up in New Orleans-how-well, we might go on
red infinitum in this strain. There was a capital
supper room and bar up stairs, uader the auspices
of that famous caterer, Mr. B. Gastinel, and the
guests, weary and hungry from much dancing,
were not slow to discover the fact.
But all joys must have their termination. And
so It was that when the grey dawn began to
break, and the market wagons were rattling over
the stony streets, the first precursors of coming
day, the last guests departed homeward, merrily
talking of the enjoyments they had found, the
lights were extinguished, and so once more the
theater where RIstori and iForresti have called
forth the plaudits of the populace was still and
quiet as the grave.
There was a regular polyglot debate in the
lower houe yesterday, no less than four languages
being spoken in the course of it. The subject
which elicited such a multiplicity of tongues was
a bill "providing for the observance of the Holy
Sabbath," which had been introduced by a cullud
person a day or two previous. After considerable
pro and con, had been said, Mr. Gutgonet, from
Avoyelles parish, asked permlmlon to address the
House in French, which being granted, he pro.
ceeded to deliver a Gallic discourse, utterly and
entirely opposing the measure. The wild boy of
Lafourche, known to the world uas Murrell, then
took the floor, and in his simple and untaught elo
quence advocated In the Ashantee dialect, varied
occasionally with choice extracts from Ccngo and
AbysmlaWn writers on the subjeot, the passage of
th ill. p to tbl timo the eiorne was ftlled with
shouts of laughter, for Iotwlthata s the seros
nees ofthe subject, the discussion which it evoked
was too subimely ludicrous not to excite mirth.
But then Mr. Bengatorff of Orleans, rose, and first,
by request, speking a short time in German, his
native tongue, and then in English, delivered a
short, pointed and effective speech, opposing, on
general principles, any law which would endeavor
to create a consclence for every man, and then
force him to obey its dictates-declaring, uas the
result of a long experience as a minister of the
gospel, his belief that all such enactments were
unnecessary and hurtful. The bill was killed per
fectly dead by 42 to 23.
Now that the carnival, with its multiplicity of
balls and other entertainments is over, and that
the first feeling of rollef that tired revelers ex.
perienced at the prospect of some rest from
dancnlog Is puassed away, the young people-and
the old people, too-are beginning to look forward
to an opportunity to shake off for a season the
austerities of Lent, and to agalin enjoy something
of the earnival festivity. Such an opportunity
will soon be at hand on the 22d-anniversary never
dying of the birth of an immortal man. The Con
tinetal Benevolet Assoeilation will give their an
nual ball at Odd Fellows' Hall. The association
is one that has risen from the ashes of the ante
bellum and Inter.bellum Continental Guards, and
to our old cItizens who knew well the sterling
worth and high poitton of Its members, this is
suficient to define exactly what the Continental
Besevolent Association is. As to their bsll, it
will be a magnlacent one, ad con be
expected to equal, lif It will not urpass any en
tertalament of the sort which has transpired this
winter. There will be everything about it to
makhe it a success. The haosts will be ooorteous
gentlemen, the guests fair ladies, while we can
rely upon the Continentals not to forget anything
that will in any manner tend to make the ball a
complete success. We have been favored by the
committee with invitations, whleh, us andoubtedly

The CsazcuCr earnestly advises its readers to
keep away from the quacks that sell specifics at
the Clay statne by the light of lanterns every night.
Their nostrums are worthless, the care for head
ache and " neurlogy," without counting the other
Ills that flesh s heirto, being naught but a decoc
tion of a speciee of American hemlock and other
drugs, which not only deaden the facial nerves,
but put one in exactly the condition to be stupid
to robbery and imposition. A dozen son' westers
of coffee house whlsky are not half so dangerous,
or so injurious, as a dose to care " neuralogy."
There is a corn doctor also who sponts about
the Clay Statue. His specific is an acid-a mri
atic or some equally flesh eating said -which en
ters the pores of one's toe and devours corn, beef
and all, exposing the bone and causing excru
ciating agony after a day or two's action.
But, reader, this is not all. We cannot say
for we have no proof-that these peripatetic
quacks are leagued with pickpockets and garro
ters; but night before last nine persons were
robbed in the Immediate neighborhood, and four
pickpockets were caught in flagrante delicto by
the sharp detectives Capt. Cain, the chief of po
lice, had set on watch, whilst in the very act of
having their hands in the pockets of the geese who
were wonderingly looking on at the magical medi
caments so eloquently described.
There is considerable complaint being made by
the Monday subseribers to the Opera House that
the programmes offered them savor too much of
monotony. For some time they were treated to
" La Belle Helene," which, though a beautiful
opera and always well snug, rather pall by too
frequent repetition. We have been requested to
call attention to this fact, and therefore suggeet a
reformation. Monday subscribers like a variety.

writing from New Orleus, tells a good story on a
young Texanu in this ty atteanding the medical
college. One eveing an alarm of fire was heard,
and in company with his room-rates he started
down the stret to see the confgratioe. Being
rather flee-footed he was soom in advance, and
glancing down a by-street he disveored a fire
enginu getting up steam, which brought him to a
stad stil When his comrade joined him be
very quietly anrod ianooently remarked: "Oh,

I- No one who has written of this unfortunate man
seems to have qult understood his ease. Nor
should I, if I had not spent a few days last sum

manently injured by alcohol, and so injured that
there was no saety for him except in total and
d eternal abstinence from every intoxicating drink.
' I have ofte bard the late N. P. Willis speak of
a Poe's conduct when he was sub-editor of the
if Evening Mirror, of wlkb Mr. Willis was one of the
editors. Poe, he would ay, was usually one of
n the most quiet, regulard getlemadike of men,
remarkably neat in his poren, elegant and orderly
about his work, aad wholly unexceptionable in
conduet sad dememer. But in a week moment.

a liquor be would d bad all he desired was
something fereely stimulating. He would fre
quently keep this up for several days ad nights,
until, in ot, his system wa perfectly zhbanste,
f and he had been ilken helpless and unretig to
bed. There he would lie, miserable and repent
ant, until be had in some degree recovered his
health, when he weld return to his labor, if the
e patience of his employers had not been exhausted.
r Having formed this deplorable habit while his
brain was immtatre, I believe that it then re
ceived an inurable injury, which caused t to
0 generate unsound tohis, opinios rroneous,
a and feelings morbid. Hi thin g apparats was

the poet. was an officer of repute in the army of
a the revolution. Like masy other soldiers, he
r married when the war was over, and settled in
n the chief city of his native State-Baltimore. His
tl eldest son, who was leo named David, was des
. tined to the law, and indue time enteredthe omnoe
of a Baltimore lawyer. This son was a ardent,
· impetuous youth, on of those ll-balanced young
men who may, if mstances favor, perform
heroic actions, but who are much more likely to
be gnilty of rash and foolish ones. While he was

many young fellowi before and see have done

di(d soon after, and, though he left a large for.
,tuae, poor Poe's name was ot mentioned in his
.il. His deth occurred in 1834, when Poe wan
itwenty-thres years of age.
The youn man had published a small volume
:of poems at Baltimore In 1829. which attrcted
rome attention, more on account of the youth of
the writer than the merits of the writiUn. Bein
cow destute of all resource, he made some en- ,
deavors to procure literary employment. Fatling
It. this, he enlisted in the army as a private eol
f ier. While hewas serving in the ranks, he wan
recognlsed by officers whom he had known at
W" waest Point, who, tar inquiring into his baser
Sapplied for his discharge; but belore the docu
;ment arrived Poe deserted. He was not very
closely pursued, however, and be soon found him
ietf in Baltnmore, a free man, but almost totally
d ititute. Then It was that he read Is a paper sa
advertisement by tbhe publiUsher of a literary p
ricdlcal. offerilg two prizs of 100 each for the
best story and the bet poem that should be of
fered. Poe sent in both a story and a poem, won
both primes, and soon after obtained employment
in as editor of the Southern Literary Messenger, the
or published at Richmond.
." Again the meas story: steady conduct and
in well sustained industry for a short time; then
drink, dissipation and discharge. Before he was
. imissed he had married his cousin, Virginia Cle

at' fond of her erratic husband. The ill provided pair
id removed to New York in 1837, wher he continued
t. to live during the greater part of the re mt of his
of life. Nothina new remanst to be told. He fre
ts quently obtained rebpeaO and uticintly lu
te cratlve employment, but invariably lost It by mis.
conduct, arising, as I think, soely from the effect
n, of alcohol on his brain. In October, 184e , in the
Scoae of a Southern lecturng tour, he stopped at

SPoe was a mild looking manu of pale, regular
Id atures, with a certain expression of weakness
about the mouth, whieh mes often have who are
SInfirm of purpose. He had something of the erect
Smlltary bearing noticeable In young men who
Shave had a military drill in tbhsryooth. What, with
