Seeretarces of Demeratte Clubs
Will confer a favor upon the editors of this col
umn by sending to the CnsscIIrr office after each
meeting of the several clubs which they represent,
a synopsis of the proceedings. We are com
pelled to ask this from them, as the rapidly in
creasing number of Democratic clubs in the city
render it impossible for a local force, however
large, to attend every meeting. We wish to make
this column a complete compendium of local
political Intelligence, and, with the aid of our
friends, will certainly do so. But such assistance
is necessary. We trust th the Democrats of the
city will give it.

This great gale has brought the water up to the

the railroad commenced. The bath-houses and
all other exposed constructions have been swept
away, we are told, all along the lake shore, from

that the fine betel at the mouth of tee Old Bayou,
commonly known as Moreen's. was washed away.
This we do not believe, although several persons
have certified to the fact. The water has kept on
rising, to the moment we last heard, from the
Gentlily Road, beyond which, on accont of the
water, the steam cars could not venture. The

The rear section of the city above the New
Basin was, at a late hour last evening, submsrged
as far in so Franklin street, and report said the
water was still advancing. Around the Jackson
railroad depoteverything was brought to a stand
still, and the Clio and Erato street care completed
the last part of their roote through water at least
a foot deep. A laughable incident occurred on
Clio street yesterday morning. A servant maid
going to market, with a basket on her arm, was
wading bravely on through the water, which
could not have been les than eighteen Inches in
depth, when soddenly she illustrated the idea of
misplaced confidence by stepping where ordinarily
a wooden crossing is supposed to be. But, alas !
the torrent bad long since swept away every ves
tige of a bridge, and the unfortunate female went
splattering into the flood, neck deep, while her
basket floated off upon the troubled waters.
Boats and rafts were called into requisition and
the city resembled, at least that portion of it, a
miniature Venice, that is to those who have ever
visited the city of gondolas and doges.

station, yesterday afternoon at 3:33 o'clock:

THNEE IS A BILL pending before the Senate,
favorably reported upon by the judiciary com
mittee of that body, which we have not as yet
seen in print, and is calculated to create quite a
stir among the beer jerkers of this city. The bill
makes it unlawful to exhibit to the public in any

of New Orleans, or other cities or incorporate
towns in the State. any performance of interlude,
tragedy, comedy, songs, opera, ballet, play, farce,
negro minstrelsy, negro or other dancing, music
or any other entertainment of the stage or any
part or parts therein, or any equestrian circus,

w.thout paying license. provided that no wine,
beer, or strong or spiritaons liquors shall be sold
in the auditorium, lobby or any apartment con
netted therewith by any door, window or other

employ or furnish or permit, or assment to the em

any of the places mentioned above. The penalty
for vietbi this s haba be impdeames tr a
term of not leas than three monthse or more than
one year, or a rie of $500 to $1000, or both.
That it will become a law is hardly to be doubted.
The advocates of the bill are free in their expree
kions of discontent at these places of amunement,
for the bill is styled "An act to regulate places
of public amusements," and argue that they are
deleterious to the morals of the young men who
frequent them. What will the comments of the
Maggies, Rosas, Claras, e tfi qu,'rfti, be when
they are apprised of the tendency to morality of

AT A MEiETTNO Of the resigned policemen held
at Constitution Club room, Canal street, on the
2d of October, the fotlowiog resolutions were
resolred, That in tendering our resignations as
policemen of this city, we were actuated by a
setse of justice to ourselves, to the citizens at
large, and to the Democratic cause of which we
are and always have been members, and in conse
quence of not having received our monthly sals
ries for the last six months, unless in city money,
which has been and is at present at a discount of
from 25 to 42 per cent.
Be it f,,rther resolred, That in the appoint
ment of J,.. Williamson, as acting soperinteud
eat of the metropolitan police force, it Is our opin
ion that a g.eat Injustice has been done the pro
perty holders, the mercantile community and the
citizens at large, as it is a well known fact that
the present acting superintendent of the metro
politan police, has ever since his appointment uas
chief of police by Major General P. H. Sheridan,
used the force under his control as a political ma
chine for the advsancement of the dominant Radi
cal faction and for his own personal interest and
e it sol! furtnher ros,'ed, That, knowing the
material the metropolitan police will be principally
composed of (both officers and members), in oar
opinion the white community and the law-abiding
colored people will have to protect themselves, ua
there is no protection to be expected from the
polce force as now about to be organized.

In another column we publish the prospectus '
of the " Phonographic Magasme," to be edited it
and published by two gentlemen, for whose tl
ability to make their periodical all that it purports
to be, we can vouch. When writing is a necessity, b
as in this age it has become to all persons of cul t.
ture and Intelligence, it is certainly desirable to o
possess the best and speediest means of commit- r
tang thoughts to paper. Phonography, a strictly
philosophic and legib:e system of phonetlo short
hand, provides the means of warties *erd es ti
rapidly as they are spoken. If you would seore t4
the subtle thoughts that flow into your own mind, a
or that you feel worth preserving while listening s
to the spoken thoughts of others, learn phonoe
graphy. If you are a physician, and would pre
serve a record of your cases, so that from your
accumulated experience you may help to evolve
the laws of health and disease, learn phonography. ii
If you sre a minister, and would save five-sixths
of the time you at present employ in writing your
notes. or elaborating your sermons in fu;l, learn
phonography. If you are a lawyer, and would t
secure the fleeting testimony on which may de. I
pend the fortune, life, or honor of your client, learn
phonography. If yop are a student, and would
fully benefit by the oral lastruction of your pro- t
fesors and teachers, learn phonography. If you
are desirous of qualifying yourself for the useful
and honorable profession of a reporter-should
your education and abilities in other respects
warrant such a determination-learn phono- I
graphy, for it is not only a lucrative calling, but
to young men of talent it is one of the most cer- I
tain stepping-stones to a position of honor and I
emolument. If you would learn phonography in
a series of short lessons, read the prospectus of
the Phonographic Magazine, and think well over
the advantages to be derived from a knowledge t
of shorthand before you lose this opportunity of

not easy for the poor man to obtain a saoileat

Prof. Mentegassa upon the superior feeding of
the English, no one who bhas traversed oar rural
distriots can doubt that in may partis of Bag.
land the workingan is underfed.
It becomes important, therefore, to notice that
in mushrooms we have a form of food which is
principally nitrogenous, or fleshforming, and
which is at the same time easily digestible, agree
able to the palate and cheap. Between two and
three thousand species of fungi are now recog.
nized, sad there are about me hundred genera.
Of these, as is well knowo, only one specious, the
aga-icus cas,tpeasris, is commonly eaten, thouh
the champignon (agaricrs pratfesii) and the
tryifile (f7tPr charimm) are also recognised
edibles. But as a matter of feet by far the larger
nomber of species are e ertiolse of food, and a
considerable proportieser very agreeable to the
Galate. In China, India and Africa mushroom
have for a long time been consumed in very large
quantltlee, and more recently many species have
been used on the costiseat of Europe. In Italy,
as we have stated, mushrooms are regularly culti
vated, one layer succeeding another, so as to
afford a constant supply.
We seed hardly point out the fmat that, when
mushrooms are regularly cultivated la this way.
all danger that poisonous fongi might be mistaken
for wholesnume varieties is avoided. It would be
an likely that by some accident one of the poison.

potato belongs sheuld be oalivstl our Eaglur
tleldeby mistake for the wholesome varletLes, as
that pomonous mushrooms should make their ap
peareanoe amoe the predaete of the Itllam mus
room beds. But, In reality, even among wild
mushrooms, the poisonous sorts form bet a small
minority. They may also be readil distinguished
by their appearance, their offensive smell, and
their bitter, astringeat, or styptic taste. If per
sons who gather mushrooms follow the simple
plan of avoiding all those which grow Isa averns
and subterranean places, or on putrefying animal
matter, or which have any unplesantnes either
of odor or fluer, there is absolutely n danger
whatevar that awholesome varieties will be
made use of. One other circumstance moust as
be mentioned. Even wholesome mushrooms will
become unfit for food if not eaten fresh, or care
fully dried and pickled whileo still i that coditia•.
Mashrooms should in fact be treated meek us
flesh would be. They closely resemble lesk is

much more quickly.
We are led to make these remarks by notioing
that in one put of Great iBrtain the sale of
mushrooms hae become a recognised part of the
operations of the year. Near Whitland, Car
marthershire. mushrooms are gathered In the
fields during summer, and odd in the lghbrbat d
towns, thus formig a ooesiderable addition to
the means of the peasastry. This year, owing
