ST. PATRICK'S DAT.
Its Observance In the City-First Pa?
rade of the Irish Rifle Club-Thc Pro
cession-Annual Reunion and Dinner
of thc Hibernian Soc I tty-O tb er Ob?
servances and Festivities.
By the accident of the 17th of March, ia this
year of oar Lord 1872, occurring on Sunday,
the celebration of St. Patrick's Day will take
place to-day in this city, as Indeed lu every
portion of the world where Irishmen are
found. The memories and traditions of the
day were touched upon in the .Catholic
Churches In the sermons yesterday, especially
at St. Mary's, where the Rev. Father Welch,
In the course of au eloquent discourse, al?
luded to the life of the honored saint. But
the grand outburst of patriotic fervor by
which the filial Irishman, at every recurrence
of St. Patrick's Day, reveres his memory, will
take place to-day. To-day the heart ot every
Celt who ls worthy of the name is turned
with all the warmth and poetry for which
that heart ls proverbial to the traditions
of his native isle, and every method is
employed to suitably demonstrate the feelings
evoked by that one anniversary which serveB
at the same time to commemorate the virtues
of a pious bishop, and to keep alive In the
Irish heart the sentiment ot nationality and
devotion to that hope of future Independence
as a happy people, which, however discourag?
ed, ls still dea^to the Irlshheart.
In this city the arrangements give promise
(unless Indeed the threatened frowns of Jupi?
ter Pluvius should Interpose) of an unusually
effective and complete demonstration. They
Include a parade of the Irish Rifle Club and
the St. Patrick's Society, the annual meetings
and the Invariable festivities of the Hibernian
Society, the St. Patrick's Benevolent Society,
and a host of private reunions iucldental to
The Street Display
will be especially noticeable this year OB ac?
count of the first public parade of the Irish
Rifle Club, an association lately organized,
which serves to revive the memories of by?
gone days? when the Celtic portion of Charles- j
ton's citizen soldiery, on every occasion, oc?
cupied an honored and honorable part. Since
Appomattox there has? been no Irish miiilary
organization in this city until the formation of |
this club, and this initial parade of the new
company ls invested, therefore, with an un?
usual degree of Interest and significance.
The club will assemble at eight A. M., at their
armory, corner of George and King Btreets,
marching thence to Hibernian Hall, where
tiley will be Joined by the St. Patrick's Society,
which meets at that hall, at eight o'clock.
The two organizations will then form In pro?
cession, preceded by the new band of the St.
Patrick's Society, and majrch to St Patrick's
Church, where high mass will be celebrated at
ten o'clock, and an oration delivered bv the
Rev. C. J. Crogban, the president of the so?
The Hibernian Society
to-day begins the seventy-second year of its
existence, and as ls always the case with this
Influential and venerable body, will celebrate
the day in royal style. The anniversary meet?
ing will be held at noon, at Hibernian Hall, in
Meeting street, when officers for the ensuing
year will be elected, and such other business
transacted as may be Introduced. In the
evening the society with its Invited guests
will partake of euch a least of good things as
only the genius of Tully, Inspired by the
liberality of the Hibernian Society, can pro
ride. The supper will be served at half-past
9even, and a word to the wise ls sufficient to
lespeak a punctual attendance of guests and
The St. Patrick's Benevolent Society
ivlll reassemble at 8 P. M. at Bernard's Hall,
corner of King and Society streets, where an?
other bounteous supply oi good things will be
served up to the members and their guests, with
the accompaniments of good cheer and good
fellowship for which the name and record of |
inls society ls a guarantee.
The United Irish Association
?Iso holds its anniversary meeting this even?
ing at Us hall, No. 18 Hayne street, for the
election of officers and the appropriate ob?
servance of the day.
A feature of the decorations ot the city will
be the large Irish flag presented by the late
Captain M. Berry, ol the steamship Columbia,
of ante-bellum memory, which will be promi?
nently displayed from Hibernian Hall, and
which, in spite of Us vicissitude of wind and
weather In so many annual celebrations of the
day, is well preserved, and will form a strik?
ing and effective decoration of this noble build?
St. Patrick's Sunday-School-Distribu?
tion of Premiums.
The anniversary celebration of the St. Pat?
rick's Sunday-sohool took place yesterday
afternoon at the church corner of St. Phillp
and Radcliffe streets, at the appointed hour.
The weather was most disagreeable, but the
church was notwithstanding soon crowded
with a dense array of promising boys and girls,
varying In size from the lisping prattlers in
short frocks to masters and misses of fifteen and
Bixteen years. The Rev. C. J. Crogban presided,
with whom was the Rev. John Moore, D. D.,
the president of the Sunday-school, the Rev.
S. Carew, vice-president, and Messrs. P. J.
Kruse apd J. T. Kanapauarthe secretary and
superintendent. The exercises were opened
by the hymn "St. Patrtck," which was sung by
the children with much fervor and effect. A
programme had been distributed among
them with printed choruses of the various
hymns, which enabled them to join In the
singing to the enjoyment of all present. The
report ot Superintendent Kanapaux, In con?
coction with that of the secretary, was next
read. The report showed the continuing and
Increasing prosperity of the Behool. Four
hundred and forty-two children, two hundred
and fourteen girls and two hundred and
twenty-eight boys, were now upon the rolls of
the school, being an Increase of eighty-seven
pupils, as compared with the number of the
last anniversary. Of these, the average num?
ber attending was three hundred and sixty
four, the average of the number absent having
been largely Increased by the'yellow fever sea?
son. The award of medals and premiums fol?
lowed, varied at Intervals by the sweet notes of |
the organ and I he chorus ol youthful Blngers.
The examination In Bishop England's cate?
chism was concluded on Friday, and thirty?
nine girls and seven boys were reported as en?
titled to the medals In their respective de?
partments. Their claims was decided by lot,
when the medal was drawn by Miss Julia
Meredith among the girls, and Matthew St?ren
Hmong the boys. The premium?, consisting of |
Handsomely bound books, Ac, were then dis?
tributed among such of the pupils as had at?
tained a certain number of good marks, but
the very large number of these prevents our
jiving the names. In conclusion the presid?
ing officer. Rev. C. J. Crogban, delivered an
affectionate and appropriate address to th??
iuvenile assemblage, and the exercls?' werg
concluded by the singing of ^ b^auLifui
hymn, "As the Dewy - ^ Qf EveQlng>"
During the exerces the ch(irch wa3 crowde(l
with spectators, p a? tne occasion seemed to |
excite a deep arjd general interest among the
residents of tho parish.
St. Patrick's Day and Its Memories.
Tom Moore, la the exuberance ot his poetic
fancy, thus enwreathes the Shamrock in
sparkling verse :
Through Erin's Isle
To Bp ort awhile
As Love and Valor wandered,
With Wit the sprite
Whose quiver aright
A thousand arrows squandered,
Where'er they pass
A triple grass
Shoots up with dew-drops streaming,
As softly green
As emerald'a seen
Through purest cryatal gleaming.
Ob, the shamrock, the green, Immortal sham?
Of bard and chief,
Old Erin's native smamrock !
Says Valor, "See,
They spring for me,
Those leafy gema of morn.ngl"
Says Love, "No, no,
For me they grow,
My fragrant path adorning !"
But Wit perceives
The trple leaves,
And cries, "Oh I do not sever
A type that bleeds
Three godlike friends,
Love, Valor, Wit forever ?"
Ob, the shamrock, the green, immortal sham?
Of bard and chief,
Old Erin's native shamrock r
So, firmly fond
May last the bond
They wove that morn together.
And ne'eranay fall
One drop of gall
On Wit's celestial leather I
May Love, as shcot
Els flowers and frnlt,
Of thorny falsehood weed 'em;
May Valor ne'er
His etan 'a d rear
Against the cause of freedom I
Oh, the Bhamrock, the green, immortal sham?
Of bard and chief.
Old Erin's native shamrock I
A MAN FOUND DEAD.-At half-past six
o'clock yesterday morning, Sidney Single?
ton, a colored member of the police, stopped
at his residence, No. 24 Nassau street, while
on his way to the upper Guardhouse to make
his report. Upon pushing open the gate he
found the body of Jeremiah Aiken, a colored
man, in a Eitting posture In the corner be?
hind the gate, with his head thrown back
against the fence. The body was yet warm
and limber, but no pulse could be felt. Sin?
gleton immed ately reported the case to the
upper Guardhouse. From the statement of (
the inmates of the house, lt seems tbat the
dead man lived there, and returned home
at half-past ' ten o'clock on Saturday
night with a strange man. The lat?
ter called aloud to the family, and a small
boy having been dispatched te open the gate,
found Jeremiah leaning against lt alone. AB
the gate was opened, Jeremiah staggered in
and fell down lo the corner of the fenoe. Be?
ing unable to move him, the boy left him there,
and he was found by Singleton as stated. The
deceased was employed in a grocery and
liquor store at the corner of America and Am?
herst streets, and was frequently drunk. It ls
supposed that he was so on the night in ques?
tion, and that the terrible exposure to the
weather aided in finishing him. On the back
part of his head 1B a wound, which seemed to
have bled freely, and was covered with matted
blood and bair. An Inquest was held over the
body yesterday afternoon, at the hospital,
whither lt was conveyed.
