We had the pleasure yesterday of witnessing i
the nuptial ceremony, which is supposed to mark i
the half way point in the journey of life, and t
which is so variously described by cynics and t
lovers as the happiest or most miserable in exis- I
tence. As for ourself we were disposed to take a t
hopeful view of the situation (perhaps because
we knew nothing about it,) and replied to an invi- I
tation, which we were happy enough to receive,
by presenting ourself at an early hour at the door
of the Jesuits Church. The ceremony at which
we were now permitted to assist (merely as spec
tator) was, as to its scenic effect, a success.
The picture presented by the bride and bride
groommight be described with superlatives, if such
deeert~tlons were not common-place, and this was,
by tid~neans, the appearance of the parties. Then
there was the upual number of snowy dressed at
tendants, (all of them pretty,) with orange blos
some; and a large and curious audience, mostly of
ladies, who were either married themselves, or
had no objectan to being so.
The nuptial mass is now performed, and the
epithalamium sung; the ring is placed upon the
fnger, and the benieon of the father of the church
Is then pronounced. With the light of the iwax
tapers shining down upon the con ting couple,
and the divine music of the choirfutuher etherializ
Ing the occasion, the thoughts of every one rose
with the incense from the censors, and it was not
easy to take any but a rose-colored view of the
instillation for cynic or poet.
We shall not describe the convivial assemblage
that followed, and shall dismiss the new-made
couple upon board of the Rolbert E. Lee-a boat
every wry fitied for a bridal tour. As illustrative
of the times, it may not be moal apropos to state
that two other couples in erse, and a good many
more is posse, were already aboard. In this num
ber of "pairs" the Robert E. Lee could perhaps
"see" any boat that has for some time sailed
from our midst.
There wa, a very large crowd upon the levee in
consequence; and we presume, as the waving of
handkerchiefs ad hats indicated, that every one
of the spectators, like ourself, wished the bridal
parties not only a pleasant trip, but a successful
voyage through life.
Fire on Fulton Street.
Yesterday morning about 2 o'clock, the gro- tl
cery store of Messrs. J. W. Scott & Co., Nos. 24 1'L
and 2G Fulton street, were discovered to be on
fire. An alarm was quickly given by the police fe
and the firemen appeared on the ground, with
their accustomed alacrity, but, owing to a scarcity gl
of water, in the neighborhood, the combustible
nature of some of the goods in the store and a
fresh wind blowiog at the time, the utmost exer
tions of the firemen did not prevent the spread w
of the flames. it
The establialsement of Meessrs. Scott & Co., and ol
its contents were entirely destroyed, nothing being to
left of the building but ruined walls. _They had at
an insurance upon their stock for $15,000, which, T
it is believed, covers their loss. The buildings t
were of brick and three-stories high.
Nos. 23 and 30, adjoining premises, and of the
same height and dimensions, were also destroyed ft
and their contents consumed. No. 28 was occu
pied by parties whose names we could not learn, p
as a produce store. In No. 30, Mr. H. Williams or
had a store for furnishing supplies to boats. He se
was insured for about $20,000, but this amount, it b
is reported, will not entirely cover his loss. These d
buildings were the property of Mr. T. Laneaux, it
-ho was insured for eight or nine thousand dol- P
No. 22, a one-story building, situated at the cor
net of Graneer street, was likewise burned down. p
In this building J. Pilgram had the "Capitol" r
coffeehouse, at the corner of Front Levee, and e1
other parties had small shops for the shoe and r
clothing business in the house. It was the pro- i
perty of Mr. Rivers, who is understood to have "
been folly insured.
It is not unlikely. that the whole square would c
have been devoured but for the interposition of a
vacant space, canused by the burning of the store P
of Messrs. Bouve & Robinson, No. 32 Fulton
street, a few weeks since. The Orleans Insurance e
Company was rebuilding the structure, and a
considetable quantity of material was lost.
the foundry of Mr. James D. Edwards, on the (
opposite side of Fulton street, took fire, and his a
loss is estimated at $3000. The upper part of the I
building only suffered from fire, but in the confu
sion incident to the occasion, thieves seized the
opportunity to carry off many valuable articles.
Mr. Edwards's loss by the conflagration is covered
by insurance.
The wind blowing from the northeast, carried
the sparks in the direction of Poydras street, and
the back windows of the feed store of Mr. J. T. 1
Gibbons being open, some hay took fire, and
nothing was left of the building but walls and
charred timbers. Much of the contents were
burned up, and the grain not consumed was dam
aged by water. The stock was partially inosured.
WThe flames communicated, also, to the grocery
store of Messrs. Case & Dowling, at the corner of
Poydras and Fulton streets. The building was
not much injured, but the stock was greatly dam
aged by the flood of water poured into it. Loss
covered by insurance. Mr. Spearing had' a sail
loft in the third story, and is a sufferer.
The store of Messrs, P. S. Du Sachet & Co., deal
ers in western produce, No. 33 Poydras street,
and that of Mr. Charles Ledig, grocer, No. 37,
were likewise deluged, to prevent the spread of
the flames, and their merchandise more or less iu
By the falling of a wall of one of the stores, on
Fulton street, Corporal D. Brady and officer M.
Bcally, of the police, and Messrs. W. Wallace of
fre company No. 13, A. Armstrong, of No. 12,
and P. Pilgiam, a private citizen, received inju
ries. The wounds of none, however, were suf
fciently serious to disable, except those of officer
Scally, who was so badly hurt that he is confined
to his bed, and is not expected to be in a condi
tion to leave it for sevehal weeks. He has no bones
broren, but his head and body are covered with
.pa.nful bruises.
BlThe firemen might have confined the flames to
the building in which they started, but for the
difficulty of procuring water. There being no
bydrants on Fulton street, or the Levee, the en
gines had to seekrc suction at the distances of Canal
and Tchaupitoulas streets and the rioer. Numbers
of fir:rmen were s:orchco inl their heroic struggles
with the confllagation, and their endurance mlay
be imagined froln tie ,ingle tact that two entire
lengths of hosea on uliton street, where the great
est exertions had io be made, were burned to a
crisp, .yino on tihe pay ment. Among those we
met with head ant nvcc;t alost blistered, was the
veteran fireman Captain Jack Adams, who upolt
this, as on all otlhr eocca ions of the kind, dis
tinguished himself by fearless devotion in endear
oring to piecsrve the property of his fellow
citizen S.
We have no imelons of estimating, even approxi
mately, tile angregrte loss. It must be consid
erably over a huired thousand dollars. Most of
the iv:srancea , so far as we have heard, were in
Northern ofbices.

Odd Document.
Dr. Dirmeyer, tihe secretary of the Board of el
Health, announced at the meeting of thlat body it
held last evening, that the subjoined odd document
had been sent to him. It was adjudged of such a ae
character as to admit of no formal notice by the
board; but whether written in good faith, or in
tended as a squib, it appears quite rich enough to
lay before our readers. Perhaps a yellow fever r
fee is the potent spell which evoked the naive b
production :

Dr. OGe, W. Dlrmeyer, Secretary Board of Health:
Dear Sir-I desire to report a most remarkable tl
case, and recovery of a young man, whose physi
cian tells hnimn he lhas had the yellow fever. After
t have stated all the facts, will you be kind p
enough, for the satisfaction of this young man t
and his friends, to give me the opionin of the
ir, It. is an Alabamian, a resident of this place f
about three months. Saturday, the 14th inst., he It
had a slight fever; Saturday night attended the
theater. Sunday morrning seat for a phtleiciau;a
Sunday evening (with tihe fever still on him) P
got up, dressed himself, anid went fron
Carondelet to Dauphin street, to another
house, where he could ond did receive
better attention. Monday morning eimployed aq
nurse, who remained three days. Tuesday had no
fever. On Saturday mnorning, 20th, ate one
chicken, three plates of soup and boiled eggs. I
From the time he was taken sick (until Ie came
down stairs on Sunday, the 24ith linst.) he ale
twenly-two oranges, drank twro whi-hies, and b
smoked fortyeigllt cigarsn. On Surlnday lie ate as t
much as any two men in tile house, and said he b
never. felt stronger. I forgot also to mention
that on the fourth day e changed his shirt and tile a
bed clothes.
I only ask now for information. Can any man
go through what this one hlie, and hace the yellow
fever ?
By addressing a line to No. 10 Bank Place,

The DUItleilerste.
The following is the nmemorial of tile distillers. t
which has been presented to the Board of Health,
as alluded to in the reports of Dr. Bnrns, health
otlicer of the First District. It has been referred
to the committee on health, and now awaits their
To the Presidlent and .Memberc of the Board of Heealthl
Gentlermen-The health officer of the First Dis
trict has issued a notice to the distillers of that
district, to the following purport:
" You are hereby required to cease forthwithlt
fromn allowing any refuse matter whatever to run
from your distillery premises into the gutters, on
pain ol haviog tihe said premises clo-ed."
Tfhis notice Ia based on the action of the Board
of Hiealth, at its meeting of the 2d inst. Your
memorialists are persuaded that the action of the
board is founded on an erroneous estimate of the
sanitary elfects of the rqfuse matter wehic tlhe
disetillera are necessarily compelled to discharege
into tie gutters, and they believe that, before the
proper legal tribuenat, they could successfully
contest tihe enforcement of an order which, if
carried out to the extent, and i tihe manner iodi,
cated by the notice above referred to, would com
pet the suspension of a great and important branch
of manfacturoing industry. They cannot suppose
that it was tihe intention of the law to interfere
with industry, further than might be required by
reasonable hygienic precautions; and they are the
more confirmed in this opinion by the fact that in
no other city of the civilized world have sanitary
measures been pressed to so harsh an extreme.
Indeed, the principle if carried to its logical
consequences would act as an obstruction to the
exercise of very many industries. It would com
pel the closing up of refineries, breweries, sugar
and molasses warehouses, groceries, produce
stores, and even photographic establishments, all
1of which discharge retuse matter into the gutters;
adl much of which refuse matter is far more dele
terious thananything discharged by the distilleries.
The right to exercise a legitimate sanitary suiper
vision in such cases is fully admitted; but if the
authority of the board be enforced to the exteut
of prohibiting the discharge of any and all refuse
matter whatever, the industries referred to would
be entirely broken up, to the great detriment of
the business of the city.
Your memorialists repeat their conviction thiat
I they could successfully contestthe enforcement of
the order of the health officer; but, whilst they
desire, as good citizens, to do everything to aid mi
Spreserving the public henaltlh, they are equally
2anxious to avoid litigation, which would be em
barrassing and expensive to both parties. They
therefore wish to set themselves right before the
board, and before the public, and to show that
they are not only willing, but anxious to assist in
the enforcement of any sanitary system which
does not entirely ignore their rights and interests.
Tiey ttirk that trhey can show that they do not
and never have discharged into the gutters any
y refuse matter that can be shown to be sanitarily
of injurious.
All .fusSe matter is not deleterious to health. Tel
The mere existence of gutters and of sewers in rep
cities in which such drains can he constructed, iut- hat
plies the anticipated discharge of refuse, It is not 1
too much to say that without such conduits of to
waste matter, cities, at least civilized cities, could Cal
not exist; and the rule adopted by the board, by str
making them entirely useless, would lead to the |
same result. But your memorialists will under- to
take to have conveyed away, in some other roan- ket
ner, any refuse matter which may be decided by wa
proper scientific authority, to be sanitarily injuri- lto
ous if permitted to run in the gutters. Inarriving
at a decision on this posnt, they are entirely will- dcl
ing to co operate with the hoard; and they sog- tlo
geat the appointment of a joint committee, on the ha
partthe board andofthe distillers; the said commit- tlt
tee tobe composed of an equal number of practical BaI
chemists and practicaldistillers, and these to select an
an additional member, the distillers paying the ex- tih
penses, and tle committee to examine and report be
on the quality and character, sanitarily collsid- run
ered, of the refuse matter discharged by the dis- an
tilleries. Your memoralists, on their part, tuider- Ce
tike to keep the gutters clean in front of their do
premnises; to keep their premises well graded, and tr
to do everything in their power to aid thie Ihealth ol
officer in carrying out the legitimaute orders of the do
board, All that they claim is the right to use the glt- Co
ters for the purposes for which gutters are construc- J(i
ted, and to discharge into them such refuse mat- to
ter, necessarily accumulating in the prosecution g.
of their industry, as may be nrianounced to be not li
sanitarily itjurious. They sincerely hope tilat 1
yoursboarl will perceive the justice of these posi- Lt
tions, and that tle larshl mei ure of closiug tip at
the distilleries, and tllereby sui-pecndil a itipUr
tant branch of mtaulfaetiinti- ilodut ', will lot m
be persisted'in. Thiy reiterate their dt.ire. to di
assis it in presorti:i lthe public health nd their in
nuxiety to avoid liitiation, and they subscribe 11

Board of Health.
A regular weekly meeting of the Board of u-cu
Health was held last evening. Preselnt : Dr. cr
Smithl in the chair, Dr. Stone,Dr. Foster, Dr.i
Choppin, Mr. MeCoard, Mr. Creevy and Mr. Pen- dtro
The minutes of tile previous meeting of the mat
board were read and approved..
Tile president called the attention of the board two
to an article wkich appeared in the Times of Su
day last, in which it was stated that the majority wat
of the members of the board were opposed to ut
quarantine, and that this statement was made on
autlhority. He mentioned the fact that members f
might, if they thought proper, take notice' of the Thc
statement. d
Mr. Creevy thought that the article did got call
for auny notice from the hoard.
Mr. MDceoard remarked that such statements qai
could only be treated as squibs. published to at- ago
tract and amuse the readers of the paper, without coO
any regard to other considerations.
The subject was then dropped.
The president next called the attention of the
board to the subject of the introduction of hides. p
The requiring of permits had given rise to muc sel
complaint, and it was thought they might be al- gee
Ilwed to came in without a permit, unless they ac
were ilnad condition. tail
Mr. Creevy thought that the requiring of permits ala
was a great interference witlh the business. In
Dr. Stone said be had seen hides admitted, some bee
time ago, which created such a nuisance as nobody
ought to be subjected to. He would asisoon have a of
dead horse near him as some of these hides. we
Dr. Foster said the health officer of the
Second District had adopted the very good plan hee
of giving captains of vessels a general permit toe
bring them in, o0 their undertaking to introduce tiec
none in bad condition. or,
No action was taken on the sulbject.
Dr. Stone inquired whethlermemnbers considered cou
the time had arrived at which the requiring and as
Ipbllshing of daily mortuary reports night pro
perly be discoetinued. It had been suggested to e
him by several sensible persons that the continued lar
publication of the few sporadic cases of cholera ste
and yellow fever now reported served only to see
excite and alarm the timid, and to afford ground au,
for exaggerations. of
Mr. Creevy thought that weekly reports would hlo
be sufficient henceforth. Subsequently he introe
duced a resolutionto dispense with daily mortuary
reports from and after Sunday next. It was pp
unanimnously adopted. * i
The reports of the several health officers were I
read, and under the standing resolution referred ii
to the committee on healti. That of Dr. Burns, sek
health officer of the First Distriet, was as follows : ae
New Orleans, October 23, 1866. ale
To the President and Members o the Board of I~enlih: e
Gentlemen--Of the streets and gutters gener- an
ally in my district, I have this week nothing new se
to report. In the upper and rear poetions of the ot
city the necessity for cleansing and watering is
still too apparent.
Awaiting the action of the board upon the mem- ha
orial of the distillers, I have not yet proceeded to re
the enforcement of the order requiring them to re
move all their liquid refuse, or to close. I have
carefully watcred thal they discharged notuieg th
sanitarily injurious into the greauers and have de
tected nIo sch offense. Onle gentlemoan applied ar
to me for a permit to erect a distillery at'the cor
ner of Orange and Tchoupitoulasstreets, he under
taking to run all his refuse tiquid tlionce, through
eIron pipes, into the river. Having tin poaeer or
eautho-i'ity i tile premises, I could of ceur-e not
t, grant such permit.

I must compliment the new contractor on hlsgood is
work, and trust that he may not be differently rc- to
ported by me in the future. There are marny
streets, however, which need to be newlydi thed, cc
and I notice the boxes; etc., with kitchen offal are th
aot always removed, as sbhold be the case. on
Visiting the French Market, early on last SBan as
day morning, I had to condemn some diseased
meat (which is the first ease of the hind I hae so of
far met with) belonging to a btchier occupying or
stall No, 17. This man It now in cstody and will 13
he tried before Recorder Gastinel, on Thsrsday all
coming. cw
I respectfolly urged on your honorable body the oh
mportance of recommending to the proper astho- tor
rtlees the hygienic Impropriety of permitting the
vending of staer fish in a past report, and permit as
meto again bring this matter before you. The t
tish market at no time should be open after I on
o'clock A. M.; yet the law allows the sale of fish, dc
shrimps and crabf as late as 12 o'clock no., the nI
whole year round. Thi Is all wrong. A personal
inquiry into the matter wilt bring overwhelming sts
proof of this truth. After 12 o'clock, all fish, etc., t
not positively odoriferous, is iced for the morrow. Co
The water resulting frot the ice used on such fish
as may not have been required for sale, is turned Ot
off, at 12 o'clock on eaRh day, where these fish, 0 1
tc., are kept. On such oessions the air is per- d
fectly pestiferous for sevetal blocks, and is the N,
occasiou of numerous complaints. I have to-day it
assud notice interdicting this practice. tit
But I would respectfully recommend that no fish ci:
or shrimps be permited for sale after they were L
twelve hours old. 15
I have caused two more captains to be fred for as
introducinog ides without a permit into suy din- t
trict. I ilave personally looked into the important m:
qluestion of hides. There is no necessity for their
ever bring wet. They are netted purposely t th
gail weight. The buyers purchase them wetatnd
hence they are in the habit of selling themn in the
oame condition. They are thns sold by the
butchers in the very skirts of our city. The hides
are lthus prepared: After skinining ithe beef, the
butcher throws the hide in a vat charged with
brinet; here it renains for six weeks, when it is
taken out and rolled into bnidles, without pre
vious drying, and ae thus rendered objectionable to
and prejlldcl-al to health. Ps

The following is the report of Dr. Lewis, health
officer oi the Third District :rt
NEw OILEaNS, Oct. 23, 18"6g. n
thonora le Board of Health :
e,ilie,rte,-i-The sanitary condition of tihe dis- t
tries continues to improve. There have been but
fewa cases of yellow fever and of cholera during
tihe pat wee~L. The street commiaesiners copm
plain of the neglect of the contractors in dischorg- ft
ing their dnties. Upon inestigation I discovered
that those assuming the title of contractors were
only agents of Mr. White, member of the cityi
colscil. I addressed Mr. White on the subject f n C
the filthly conedition of the streets, and was in-t r
fromud ery him that it was owing to the illness oft
the foreman. As the foreman is now restored to
health, no further excusacs:can ibe offered. A letter C
addressed to I)r. Smith, president of the Board of N
Health. in which the writer complained of Chris
terus brewery, on Msorefa street, and referred ry
l)r. Sliith to me, was examniued, and finding goon
cause for tles complaint. Mlr. Christern was placed ci

The health officer of the Fourth District, Dr. S
Hulse, reported as follows :
New Orleans, Oct. 2:1, 180. 1.
reo tteonreable resaidt sadnd Booaedsrtealth, New Or- tt
leaus, a: in
hetlemeou-For the preceding week, I have the -
honor to report that my duties have been of the
usual routine character, not requiring, as I think,
any special remarks in reference to the dilfferent
departments inspected.
Ia hve to report a case of yellow fever, now
dyling at tlhe Louisiana hotel, and a case of poison
ing, by laudonum, in a young Irishman, aged 24,a
with suicidal intent and result. This oc- a
curred on Saturday morning. A two ounce
vial was found in his room, containing four or five
drachms of laudanum, and the presumption was
strong that he had taken all bat the visible re
mains in tih vial.
It was also alleged that the deceased had,
two nights previously, taken an additional ounce.
The usual remedial measures were resorted to
without avail, includding the sse of the stomach
pump, which revealed the unmistakllable poison
considerable quantity. 'Ibhis was the third attempt
of the deceased to destroy himself by this means.
The two vials bore the label of a well-kuown
druggist in the IFourth District.
An examination of the health ordinance, in its
tearings on tlhe case, failed to aflbrd nme the re
quisite grounods on which to base an offidavit
against the druggist who furaished the poison,
rucasequeutlyi it was not made.
Very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
Healtla re, P-th nrortrict
Dr. Stone, in reference to the subject of the
celling of poisonous cod dangerous drugs, sug
gented by the report of Dr. Hulose, remarked that
a city ordinance prohibited it except under cer
tainrestrictionn. If this werenot done they,might
always be readily procured for the purposes of
murderas well as suicide. He saw no necessity,
however, for any action of the board in this case.
Dr. Hulse, in-ebply to ano inquiry by a membler
of tho.boart, said that the druggist referred to
was Mr. Hastings.
The secretary read the ninth section of the
health ordinance, as follows:
SEc. 9. No poisonous medicine, druIg, prepara
tion or substance shall be held for sale, or sold,
or given, or administered, except for lawful pur
poses and with proper motives, and by persons Oat,
competent to give the directions and prenautions
as to the use thereof; nor shall any bottle, box,
parcel, orreceptacle thereof be delivered to any
person unless tile same is marked " Poison," in
large and legible letters, nor under any circum
stences to any person who may be supposed, pre
sonled or jodged capable or desirous of eaing it for
any illegal or impropeo putrpose under a penalty
of not less than ten dollars nor more than one
hundred dollars for each and every offense."
No further acotionwas taken in the premiseos.
Dr. Foster offered a resolution to, suspend the
proclamation of the governor declaring certaim
ports ilfected. The resolution was offered under
the following provision in the seventh section of
the quarantine law: "The provisions of this ant
shall apply to and be enforced at the quarante
station on the Atchufalaya river,. from the first of F
May to the first of Noveimbhref each year ; and yea
also when the governor shall have issued his pro
clamation, as provided by the tlhirteentl secion.
and in such a case shall remain in full force until res
suspended by a reslnttion voted for by twm-thirds etc
o tle membersa of the Boa ofof Health." vil
rot. Creevy seconded th.-esolutiou.
Mr. 1aeCoard was under t1c impression, that it T
had been the custom for the Board of HIeath to ne
request the governor to revoke his proclamation. toa
lr. Foster said that to is was an error. o
Tie president saidthe-law evidently empower ed
the board to suspend tle proclamation.
The resolution was then unoaimosnly passed, are
and the secretary was directed to lave it pub- tot
lished. It will bh foand olecially advertisedin hrod
