We kindly ask the Post not to dismies these considerations as e unworthy o discussion, and not to think that we are ch ish and stubborn in declining to f assist . entailing on the country conse t qun such as those to which we have Sallud _ d The Old safallne Conveat. e above building, now used as the archie ie piscopal residence, on Chartres and Ursuline ic streets, is one of the antiquities of the city. 5- The chapel sattached to it was the first re -a ligious edifice that was built in this city or id State. r- The convent has something to boast of be ad sides its educational and religious associations, te and it was here that for a number of years, y, and until 1834, the legislature of the State re held its sittings. When it was built by the f- French government, in 1733, it stood in aeen ad tral-part of the rising metropolis. But busi is ness has fled its immediate quarter, and the re cathedral and Jesuit's church now draw to n. gether the larger throng of the pious. A- ttracted recently, during a stroll through al that portion of the city, by the sight of its es slate colored roof, its time stained walls, and ;h the general air of antiquity that pervades this a- range of buildings, we ventured to penetrate ar within the high inclosure that zealously shuts se the grounds from the vulgar gaze. We were a- politely welcomed by the concierge who occu r- pied two rooms at the entrance, the existence a- of which latter we had not suspected. We v- found ourselves in a garden, and passing w through the main building, beheld another of er still larger extent, in which, doubtless, the h- grandmothers of many of our readers played as children. In thd rank growth of the arti e ficial trees and plants, some of which, it is a- not too much to suppose, have been here for l- eaTly a hundred and fifty years, and with i, the branches of the willow, althea, fig tree, er and the leaves of the banana, which have 7e grown in wild luxuriance, the walks have be es come almost impassable. A row of mulberry p- trees near the outer wall, screened the inmates sd from the view of the neighboing houses, and Ie rendered the place as isolated and retired for ry the nuns and their pupils as the building the if latter. at present occupy. Still, we presume that, it was with a view to esape from e- worldly influence that induced them to m dispose of the building and grounds, in ly 1829, and move to the neighborhood of ay the barracks. But the principal object of a- interest about the grounds is the old chapel, Soundoubtedly the oldest building there is in n the State. Religious service is now performed w in a church of more modern origin, and in deed, all of the wood work of the chapel's d interior is in a state of ruin. The flooring s has almost entirely rotted away; one or two pews hint at its former use, and the general aspect of the interior reminds the observer of Hood's "Haunted House." Some portion of the altar is still remaining, and, singularly enough, a fine painting of the Virgin, just above, is but little injured by time. Other wise the walls of the building are in good preservation, and we were pleased to learn that a plan is thought and talked of-as the present church is insufficient at times for all of its worshipers-to restore the chapel to the uses of religion. Re-entering the main build ing you mount to the second story (as premiere,) by a staircase bordered with old fashioned iron railing, and on either side are to be seen the dormitories formerly occupied !by the nuns. But there are no objects at present in the building which recall the pres ence of woman, and the furniture generally is I remarkable for its simplicity. In this con- 1 nection it may not, perhaps, be inappropriate I to remark.that the buildings are now under N the charge of the vicar general, Rev. Father Gilbert Raymond, who represents the arch bishop during his temporary absence. A valuable theological library, with the works t of the Fathers, Meditations, Problems, De monstrations Evangalique, Vie des Saints, Lettres Ediflants-we glanced at before leav- I ing and were also permitted to see the last report of the vicar general From it we I learned that there are now 132 of the resident e Catholic clergy in this city, 14 asylums and hospitals, 14 convents, 30 academies and I schools, and about seven or eight thousand F I pupils of bqth sexesi and in the whole State e i 8S churches. Taken as a whole, the old convent is in a good repair; the walls are still of great t I strength, and the building is likely to remain I for many years to come a solid monument of 1 the olden time. ,lr. George Brown, of 180 Commerce tt, has favored us with a copy of the e "atalogue of casts of fossils from the prin eipal museums of Europe and America, with short descriptions and illustrations by Henry SA. Ward, A, M., F. G. S., professor of natu ral sciences in the University of Rochester." These casts are invaluable substitutes for the original specimens, which in many cases are not to be procured at all, and when they can beare extremely 'costly, and no less difficult of access, as scattered through collections in all parts of the world. The mighty Megathe rium and the monster Plesiosaurus are repre sented by skeletons so exactly resembling the veritable bones, that none but a critical eye could detect the difference ; and so with some twelve hundred and fifty other casts of repre sentatives of animal life in the antediluvian world, from man to microscropic protozoa, from the repulsive pterodactyle to sponges, from the gigantic megalosanrus to a coprolite of the MIacropoma, and foot-tracks of the Cheirotherium Barshi, Anomaepus major, and Sauropus primoevus. A collection of the t whole would be a.magnificent possession for a scientific institute. From the catalogue alone, abundantly illustrated as it is, and simple as are the accompanying descriptions, more mightibe learned on the subject in a week, than many pupils of our best schools learn in the course of their whole tuition. Taxe VIarETIEs THESha cAL CosPArr.--Mr. c W. R.

We were pleased to receive a a, visityesterday from that universal New Orleans t1 favorite, JDolly Davenport, who will resume C Shis old connection with the Varieties, h - r Fiot.y.ears In the rew World. NUIEER NL\E. We gave our reiders in our last a slight description of the agitated ocean in the Ger man sea; we shall now undertake to give an t idea of the tranquil side of the picture-that t is, the quiet life on board of the good brig An t gelica, when wind and storm had ceased to a overturn everything on board and in the cabin . or the passengers' hold. Perhaps it would . not be now amiss to state the number and the t personnel that made up the travelers-united U at least for a voyage of two months-across the ocean, and who had then ample time and occa a sion to learn each other's social disposition and character. For if our readers have had any experience in traveling, it is upon such voy ages that their characters may best be studied and observed. Let us then state that besides our two pat rons, the Messieurs Am Ende, there was the much esteemed Mr. Edward Schiff, Sr., an in w timate friend of the former, and ancestor of the Messieurs Schiff, now one of the most solid commercial firms in our city. These three had in fact chartered the brig, which, belonging to the mercantile firm of Merk & Co., of Ham e burg, was moreover consigned to the house e of Rochelle & Schiff. Captain Harmsen, who commanded the vessel, had given free pass age to a countryman' of his, and an old sea faring companion, by the name of Captain Winkelman; the latter made, however, his ap pearance at table only upon the near ap h proach to the American coast, having been n confined the greater part of the voyage to his d cabin, on account of debility and exhaustion. is So that our company, if we include the two a officers assisting the captain, and two young a cabin boys, may be counted in all say ten e persons behind the mast, or frequenting the quarter deck or passenger cabin. Our readers we ill, therefore, perceive that we were by no e means crowded, and although the vessel was g not a very large one, still we had all possible f conveniences on board of her. To mention e only some details or particulars in order to a give a better conception of what in those - olden times, when sea traveling was consid [ ered a rather long lasting affair, it was neces sr oary to provide ourselves with, when all the h comforts of passengers were at their own charge and expense, we shall now state that ,e we had laid in a considerable stock of pro Svisions and all sorts of eatables. Our friends and relations had been particularly attentive s in making up in jars, glass bottles, and vari . ous cans and boxes, a variety of sweatmeats, er salad, pickled and other preserves; we may se mention, more especially, smoked beef s tongues and Hamburg eels, the latter a most n delicate table rarity. Then there were West o phalia hams, pomerania (canvas ducks,) n geese breasts, lampreys, and a great variety of ,f fresh eggs, kept in well packed barrels and >f boxes. But besides these preserved pro I, visions we had on board, upon deck, several n coops and cages with ducks, general poultry, d all live ones, four porkers, and as many lambs or sheep, stowed away in the big boat in the ' middle of the upper deck. So, that with g the ordinary supply of ship fare or provisions, U there was no lack of creature comfort. As for d the liquid part of the life necessaries, there ,f was just as great a variety and comfortable as sortment ; and we need, therefore, not] make any particular enumeration. Suffice it to say, that, even at that remote time, the old German hock or Rhenish wine had to play a couspic i nous part in the often renewed reunions. On board ship, things generally go like clock work, so it was on board of our staunch and l comfortable Angelica, who, with a fair wind, was a most excellent sailor. The crew before the mast, mostly native born Hamburgers were exceedingly active and laborious, always doing something, either repairing old sails or making oakum, or any other sailor's work, I never idle when fair weather and wind kept the vessel on her course. As for the after cabin people, the passengers and officers of the ship, it was a most pleasant time to spend, for every one had his routine of business to perform, between the meals; and after dinner, which would generally last to two or three o'clock in the afternoon, the whole company would turn to conversation, music, and gen eral amusement. In the evening, after tea, again modsic and singing would often be the order of the night, though sometimes a game of cards, whist, or some other social sport, would make up the day's entertainment. Now it may be asked what kind of music, and what kind of singing could you carry on, there being so few people in the cabin ? Well, it does not take many Germans to make up atolerable chorus, and particularly at that time, we recollect that almost every one would know by heart the then patriotic airs and songs, particularly those of the la mented Theodore Koerner, who fell in one of the battles against the French in 1813 or '14, near Hamburg, that is, in the province of Mecklenburg, in its close vicinity. These patriotic songs every one then sung or knew by heart, and being accompanied by guitar or some other instrument, all those.not par ticipating, would listen to, with the same fervid emotion. As for the routine business of which we have been speaking. that each one of us had to perform, it is in the first place well known, that captains as well as the officers have their regular journals to keep, besides the other business to which they have to give their attention; as for the pas sengers, allof us, we employed our time most usefully in reading, writing, etc. There was a multiplicity of mercantile writing to be put in order; besides which charge; all of us had undertaken to keep a journal of the voyage, in which each one consigned his par ticular observations and remarks. This prac tice we have generally followed in after time, upon our travels, and we find that it is by these means that a great many of our passing events have thus been much better preserved or engraven -in our memory. Such a habit cannot too much be recommended to young people; it gives them, besides many other advantages, that of accustoming them selves to a certain routine or order in their daily occupations or transactions. To rightly understand the prevailing feeling among all classes of people, we must recollect that in 1816 immediately after the close of the long lasting wars in Europe, when every thing appeared still unclouded ; when kings and nations hoped and trusted one another ; when commerce and industry, which had been so long oppressed, again found themselves free and unfettered, every one breathed indeed an easier breath ; every one saw a bright future and hoped for a general improvement and amelioration. Such then were the feelingsand sentiments that prevaded the whole of the then European and American society. As for Germany and the German people, there never had been such a period of general and genu ine enthusiasm among all the classes of that genial people ; and these sentiments were then expressed, not only by the innumerable publications of the daily press, but by all the national writers and authors. Such was then the desire of the Germans in the United States who had been placed in almost a completely isolated position, by means of the blockade during the war with Great Britain, that they demanded by all means, some of the more popular publications or late works of the German authors, and we recollect that we had on board of our ship a bundle of recent publications issued then in Germany, addressed to the late Judge Ludeling, long a resident and parish judge in the parish of Pointe Coupee.. In this col lection of works we remember having seen the then just issued complete works of Theodore Koerner much prized even to this day ; as well as the works of the great poet Goethe,Wilhelm Meister, Lehrzahn, also then just issued from the press. Thus will our readers perceive that each period or epoch of history has its moments of enthusiastic excitement; for our ancestors Ithen felt as much interest in the passing events of their time, as we do now, in the great dramatic developments of our so ciety. Then it was the deliverance from a galling, military yoke, that made every breast expand and breathe freer in the world; now we await, what modern, social history, may have again in store for European society. As for our part, that is, for the United States, we imagine that our four years strug gle has left us ample time to ponder and study upon the inevitable social deductions from these immense developments. OPENcces OF THE ST. CHARLES TEATRE.--The theatrical season is fairly upon us. Before the close of the week there will be five places of amusement that are open to the public. We are pleased to chronicle the fact that the St. Charles will be among this number, and that Messrs.
