To-ibght Qi1 be Bt Jsegph's Night, the onk in
the desert of Leten assteritss, whS enables
thabos the bithful who are begtasing to' flter
in their observance of the fast to enjoy a feast
whose memory shall make the inaterval between
this sand aster seem less rksome. As usual in
our gay city, the evening will not lack celebra
- tion, but will receive all the honor due it. Twoof
the best of the assocations are to commemorate
Sthe ocrasle with balls, at which mirth wil reiga
supreme. The Young Men's Benevolent Associa
tion will take possession of Odd Fellows' Hall,
and therein wll display towards their frienes that
genuine hospitality which is a characteristic of
the members of the association. Thanks to the
- kindeess of Messrs. J. Bereegeay, secretary, and
n. L. A. Richards, the Caeecmrv has been bidden
to the feast, and will surely not neglect
the Invitation. A ball will also be given
by the Pelican Mutual Benevolent As
soelation at the Deutsche Company Hall,
Blenville street, eoraer of Exchange alley. where
the Pelicans will for one evening make their nest
and bid their guests welcome to It. Here again
thb Czmscvt has been honored, and here again we
shall certainly show our appreciation of the
honor by being present at the bell. We wish to
both associations a delightful evening, sad hope

ber of private parties to be given, at each of
which a due quota of pleasure Is to be expeeted.
On the whole, St. Joseph's night will be much en
w joyed by the young folks of the Crescent City.

made by the city librarian to delinquent subseri
bers to the library has not bees without efeot.
u Qalte anumber of books hae been retaned, and

Indebted to Mr. John MoClelland for certain !u.
formation recently published, concerning Mr.
Anthosy Fernandes and, on this assumption, lec
tores Mr. McClelland for presuming to be so unkind
to his uncle, and the Cazsczar for being In.
finensed by politcal antagonslem in its brief sketch
a of the life of Mr. Fernandez. The Republican is in
error in both partieulars. The reporter of the Cans
cmrr did not get his information from Mr. McClel
land-nor had he any need to apply to that
gentleman, as the facts referred to re so well
known in this communoty as to be notorious. Mr.
MoClelland, In bringing his suit, is exercislag a
privilege which the law accords to him. With his
motives, whether kind or unkind, the press has
nothing to do. The question is a judiioal question
and will be settled by the courts. Am to the facts
of Mr. Fermandesls political career, they are so 1
recent and so remarkable that they could not be
omitted from a sketch of his very remarkable life.
He may have beens very determined Radical since
the capture of New Orleans, In April 1862. but
It is just as true that he was a determined
Confederate before that time, and that while the
federal fleet lay opposite to the city, he was the
meeost violent of all those who resorted to the City
Hall during that week. No one that is conversant c
with the events of the time can faill to remember m
his excited and angry demeanor, his denunciations
of Farragat and the federals, and his loud advice
to Mayor Monroe never to haul down the State a
lag from the City Hall. Thes things may be
discreditable to Mr. Fernandes, or they may be
extremely creditable to him; but they are true,
and because they are true they were stated.
In a trial that Is now progresming in the United d
States District Court one counsel brought into

his opponent brought 14 volumes. Plenty of law
We have now on exhibition at this offioe, a very
unique and eurious maobine, being nothing more A
nor les than a one-wheeled velocipede. There
has been, we know, much talk of aone-wheeled
velocipede, and muooh discussion of a plan of one
made at the North, which we published a few
days since, but a yet we Imagine bet few of our
readers have seen one. For their Inrormation we
submit the following description of the machine: a
The wheel Is about eighteen Inches in diameter.
The axle projects about six Inches on either side. re
To each end of the axle a strip of wood, about bi
three inches square and four feet long, is attached,
the distance between the stripe widesing as they
extend from the axle. A box, three feet by two,
and about one foot high, with one end open. Is u
fastened upon these strips, leaving a portion of oc
the strips, about one foot long, which are shaped an
Into hoandles. The modus operandi is for a man to bh
take hold of the two handles, when oanother man
ets into the box and the first eantioned one tra-On
dies him saong. The speed that can be attalsed
varie with the weight of the man in the box
and the strength of the man at the handles, bat lo

We learn that the question regarding the legality wi
of the city to receive metropolitan police warrants ,
in payment of city taxes, has been referred to an a
eminent legal gentleman of this city who, after
thoroughly investigating the matter, gives uas his c
opinilon, that the statute law making the warrants en
receivable for city taxes is unconstitutional, and
that it has so been decided by the highet conrt of
the country. The constitutional prorvilon and de- at
cison, it is averred, expressly declare that no ag

to receive any other currency than Gold, Sliver, po

It is to be hoped that the chief executive of the ho

It is rather a cturious sight to see the operation
of tasting contested wine which is now constoantly Jo
going on in the United States Distrlct Court. First of
the box, sealed with the seal of the United States, to
just as It wasu elsed, is brought in and deposited at h
the feet of Judge Durell. Then it is solemnly

every blow of the hatchet as if trrald that each pr

and intricate legal point might be evolved from
the manner in wbleh the operation is condoted. ah

Aad About the splendid bail of the Hibernian Mutual
lean Benevolet Association, which took place at Odd
act Fellows' Ball on Wednesday night, we thought we
ron had said all that could possibly be said within the
as- limited psee of a journal. But we were mists

set of Messrs. W. J. Keeley, president of the associa.
sin ies, Ed. Sweeney, P. Bradley, D. D. O'Brien, M.

he a pleasant hour was spent in the company of sev
to ral ladies, sand Captain Russell of the ship Tiger,
pe Capt. Kelbam of the Speculator, and Captain
rill Ronald of the Lord Deihoursey.
The excellent things that were said, sand the ez
m- oellent wine quaffed over them, need not be re
of counted here, for it'wasu a quiet, family like affair,
d. over the pleasant memories of which we prefer
in- dreaming. After supper, Mr. Kalinski, of the
corner of Spain sand Levee street, presented the
association with a large, beautiful wreath of ever
sal greens and white roses, in the center of which
could be read these words, on a green ribbon:
S"Hibernia Club," and the words, " March 17,
nd 1869," on a pink ribbon, below, both being on
en nected by a harp of gold.
The wortd of Mr. Kalinki, as nearly as we can
recall them, were as follows :
Mr rltly. ]PJid.t. nA -4.lUemn, ofrth H hmnisn lab :
"' It had been my desire to present you this wreath
at my house, but I was disappointed on account of
n- your annual parade not taking place; therefore I

as a token of the regard which I bear for you as
men, as gentlemen, and as members of a sooisety I
which in itself is a credit to this city. This wreath,
u- although not constructed of costly material, will
:h nevertheless convey to you my appreciation of
in your worth.
In its construction you will notice that the 1

1 such are emblematic of the purity of your mo
st tives. In the background is the green, the color t

The romanto DeCouroey-AagladasFont case hi
is not yet at an end. Yesterday Frank Haynes, H
Esq.. counsel for Font, the tutor of Marie Dolores
Anglada, filed a suspensive appeal from the dealc
sion of Judge Duvigaesad, authorizing the oouple to
to marry. We learn that the couple have acto
ally married, and it is a very delicate question
which Mr. Haynes should have considered, and
the court should considerer, whether a suspensive
appeal can be granted when the subject to litigs- t
tion is of a perishable nature. The whole matter
resolves itself, as Henry Clay once said, into a ju
bubble on the ocean. bi
The leaders of the Cuban troops at Cienfuegos
are, we learn, Adolphus Cavada, late commercial th

and Otto Schmldt, a rich merchant, leads the Cu. fo
bans at Trinidad. W
The whooping cough is by no means an Instita
tlioo we wish to see encourated in this city. In
fact, we sinoerely regret that some enterprising C
lobbyist did not get a bill through the Legislature, P1
daring its late session, which would have given Si
them an entire sad exclusive monopoly of it, so m
that it could not possibly be disseminated beyond a
a particular rig. But as that was not done, we wi
suggest that parties owning children who have
taken stock in that disease would, for the sake of
the public comfort, refrain from siring them in to
the city cars, or diverting them at the Academy UI
of Music on Saturdays. It may, no doubt, bc very inl
amusing to parents to witoess a regular attack
upon one of their young "hopes"-to see the pluck
they display in fighting for breath-to hear their
whoops and yells of defiance of the enemy; but 12
we cannot sy that it interests the public gener. i

posing one. Mr. Pons had been a Mason for four
years previous to his death, being a member of
Union Lodge No. 172, and had for many y
been an active member of Columbia Fire Comps

the city, they determined to give this matter a cc
seious and thorough investlatlon, in order that
the reponslbility of any act detrimental to the *
city's interest, if such there were, should be
thrown where it properly belonged; with this ob
ject in view, they have called before them all
those who they thought were conversant with da
said rumors and accusations, or who per. tii
tended to know about misppliation of Igi
funods, neglect of duty, etc. After hearnlog the the
dlerent statements, and after a patient and te- ala
diones examinatiaon, in which unlimilted latitude a
wa si ren to the accusartion, your comnmttee have tre
arrived at the conclusion that these rumors were
incorrect and the secusation without fondltion

is not. There no contract of suretyship here,

If Mr. James had been the surety of Walton &

the whole amount of the debt, L e. 1600, ao the
