out of doea tread the pavement in the firm. eltie

for them as at does for men. Whether it is that
their hearts are so much warmer and difftse s ge- to
oral feeling of warmth and comfort through their II
entire system on such days as would almost mate

but that they will go out for pleasure in weather u
I then so sevre that nothing but dire necessity would s
compel a man to venture out In the chilly blast. I n
know free personal observation to be a fact. Yet in
we cannot chide them, for it i a positive delight ,s
to take a stand on a prominent street corner, and
in mlent and respectful admiration watch the dear
creastres as they pass. On meetng " the queen up
of my soul" today, a "girl of the period," I ns
could not refrain from perpetrating a bon moto :
she looked to cold and ruddy. I remarked to her, se
" My love is like the redd rose;" and in view p
of the fact that " her cheeks glowed with the rose in
tint of health," I flatter myself the observatioo
was not absolutely mtal a propos. " Did you wn

'eep. With the advent of cold weather conflagrations
are becoming more frequent. A disastroas fire b
occurred at the corner of Second and Elm streets, in
on Monday niaht. destroying the large warehouse i
of Blooafield & Co., together with its contents, re
ccmprising hundreds of tons and bauhels of grain at
and a large quantity of miscellaneous goods on i
storage. The lose above insurance will amount to w,
considerable. During the progress of the are, sh
some of the burning timbers and debris fell upon
the dwelling of an aged Frenchman adjoining, and be
it was with difficulty that the old man and his wile at
were rescued from their perilous position. bi
Lusiness of all kinds is "stale, fiat and nproft- w
able." Even our saloon keepers complain of dull fa
tames; and when people commence economizstg in
as to their daily allowance of "fire water"-re- cl
during their rations say from twenty and twenty. c
five to five and ten "snorts" daily-it is safe eves
for the most careless observer to "gamble" on ct
the conclusion that bueiness is dull; and he might, o
in fact, with a degree of propriety prefix quite a ,,
rebast adjective to the word "dull," sad still keep ta
within the bounds of truth. as
On the landing matters wear a very quiet and a
serene appearance. The Cornelia commenced fo
loading for New Orleans at greatly reduced rates,
and other boats of course had to follow suit or th
get no freight. The Cornelia will enter the New w
Orleans and Ouachita trade, which accounts for fu
her engaging freight so low, as she was bound to w
leave for New Orleans, freight or no freight, and a
the only way to quickil secure a trip aas to "cut sa
under." The Lizzie Gsil left to-day, and will be
followed on Saturday by the mammoth Bismarck.
Probably no boat in the trade has, in so short a
time, become such a general favorite with ship.

In the amusement line we have superior attrao
tines this week. At DeBar's the youthful and m
mirthful Lotto is performing her new play " Fire in
Fly," to large-and a is always the case when lii
she plays-delighted audiences. Persons afflicted a
0 s, with " the blues" have but to witness Lotta's
performance, when their equilibrium sad repose hi
of mind are restored as if by magic. She will re- O
main with us three weeks altogether. John E. oI

everywhere as an actor unsurpassed, if Indeed bi
equalled in his line of characters, by any gentle. hi
man who treads the boards, is at the Olympic.
in BHe appears to night as Josha, Butterby in the p
comecy of " 'lhe Victims.' and in his specialty ,
'Polt, Shinpgla' " ollowing so anson as he does
after Mr. Hackett, frequenters of the Olympic ui
waill have a flie opportunity to judge of the rela t.
tive merits of Owens and Hackett in the charac- .
ter of "Rip Van Winkle," in which Mr. Owens b
will appears during his present engagemet. At 't
rold the Varieties we have a three legged male dancer, u
wbose performances are wonoerful: also Mile ai

M. Harts closed his three weeks engagement at h
Philharmonic Hall on Saturday night, and left in
the minds of those who availed thlemselves of the
oppoatnmity of seeing his slight-of-hand tricks, g,
the impression that he is the very king of ma. h
gicians. On Friday sight the second contest be- d
tween common-sense and spiritualism took place l
at the ball. and resulted in the utter squelching B
of "Prof. C. W. Jackson, test medium, etc." Two
gentlemen from among the audience were chosen c
sea committee, as on a previous trial, but unfor- b
tenately for Jackson, one of them happened to be
a police commissioner, who from force of habit. F
forthwith proceeded to search him, and, to be y
brief, two ropes, exactly alike, were found con- F
sealed about his person, together with a sharp w
jack knife (in his boot) and a sharp blade, with a
screw at one end. The dodge was to stoop down a
and pick up the knife after kicking of his boot, b
and cut loose the rope tying his hands; and the y
blade with screw attached was to be screwed into n
the back part of the cabinet Inside, and for which n
a hole was found already prepared, when by care. ,
folly prevsing his wrists against the blade, the rope a
would be cut and the work of the spirits per- a
formed. The cut rope was to be then concealed b
sad the whole one would be presented to the an- b
dience as "the Simon pure." The committee, f
however, tied him with a twine, and after remaio- I
ing in the cabinet about three minutes, he crieJ,
"hold, enough! " and was "d--d" by the sa- ,,
dience, some demanding that he be hanged, and a e
little hanging, 1 firmly bellive, would have been u
5r*. beneficial to him, but he ws simply admosished b
to " go mud sin no more." He looked like he had e
stolen a sheep and swallowed the wool, and like e
the boy whom the calf ran over, hada't a word to
say. We are frequently visited by "dead beats'"
but the " professor" capped the climax.

finding the following dishes served at table: A sl
dinner in the reign of Charles I of England con- h
siated of " A soope of anylaes, a powdered goose,
a joll of salmon and a dish of green fish, buttered,
with eggs." This was the irst course. Then E
came "A Lombard pye, a oows udder, roasted, e
a gand boyled meat, a hedge hog pudding, a l

dish !) eggs in moonshine, ohristal jeily, jumballs, i
quidany, brsgget and walnut suckets, cochale st

seemed to moisten these delectable dishes.

In btismeraleg's Osicam appears the sdver
tisement of Mrs. L Wesigto's fashiouable dress
making and trimming establisemeat, No. 197
In directing the public attention to this widely
ce!ebrated emporium of fashions, we avail our
ir selves of the privilege to add that tis seldom an
opportenity is afforded as for chronicling the
career of an etaWbishmeat which has existed for
the past twenty year sad been the recipient of a
I. more liberal patronage than the New Orleas|
1 community pave bestowed upon this estimable
a lady. The remarkable prosperity which has a'
a tended Mrs. Washington in her special department,
's can be principally attributed to the artistic skill
d displayed in the cutting and fitting of all fabrios
icntrusted to her, and the superir care they re
e- ceive under the manufacturer's hand.
In viiting the extensive rooms assigned for the
t latter purpose. you will perceive forty or fifty
: young ladies, thoroughly accomplished in the ouse
a- of the needle, actively engaged in preparing the
costliest iaterials which are destined to adorn the
i lovely person of some fortunate bride, or to be
swept in waving folds upon the poll-hbed floor of
an some fashionable ballroom.
- Inlthe last month Madame W. has responded to
thirty orders for bridal trousseaus, one of which
Swas designed for a young lady of rare beauty and
e, wealth, but so mysteriously complicated that we
it can only convey to our readers an imperfe:t idea
or of its loveliness. Imagine a queenly train of
to hite tulle sprinkled with diamond dust and far
na nisbed with bugle sutin cord, point lace trimmings
i1 beaded with brilliant fringe, over dress looped with
t branches of orange blossoms and richest flowers,
a. 5sas composed of poncean satin, with point
lace and brilliant fringe; veil point lace to corre
pt bpend, with trimming on dress.
In the selection of the dafierent articles for this
Si4mportant occasion, Mrs. Washington was allowed
.4 to exercise her own discretion, and if our limited
ir knowledge of such matters will be accepted as an
r4 opinion, 'twas. without doubt, a most flattering
t: exponent of her experienced judgment and fault
t 'The effect produced by the superb costume of
a the betwitching bride when in front of the chan.
to cel's glaring lights can be far better conceived
ig by our lady friends than our untutored pen can do
The richness and magnificence of its finish was
beyond the possibility of surpassing, while the
skillfulness displayed in its execution auded anew
9r wreath to the laurels already achieved by this
d- distinguished e,,odi.je.
at In connection with Mrs. W.'s pattern rooms is
as up-msstrs apartment, furnished with all the mod.
ern appliances of luxury and splendor. From the
hour of11 a. Ms. to I P. u. this lady receives her
Tt numerous patrons, who not only represent the
a elite and wealth of our city, but, being aware of
i the high!y cultivated taste and elegantly refined
is manners of Mrs. W., repair to her sumptuous
a drawing-room to leave their orders, consult upon
to the prevailing styles, and while away uncere
. monionsly a few fleeting hours.
r; There are a great many frequenters of our
se noted thoroughfare who are still ignorant of the
Id charming little retreat which this emporium pos
d.se es, and to such we would observe that, if they
p. desire to become acquainted with a lady of an un
id usual order of professional talent, we would re
e commend them to No. 11.2, where a more than
ti agreeable surprise awaits their patronage.
to We anticipate for the next four weeks an
iy unusual degree of excitement among the ladies
- of the Fourth District owing to the announce
d, ment in this morning's paper, which Mr. E. Liber.
is man makes in regard to his extensive stock of
I elegantly assorted dry goods.
e- We confess to having had some experience in
a this particular branch, which enables us to dis
n- tingnish with facility the various qualities of the
an different goods, and feel perfectly satisfied that
of in representing Mr. L.'s assortment as being
rd something superior to the general line, we will be
id substantiated by all competent judges who have
recently visited this well known establishment.
e I The latest and most recherche- styles of poplins,
he magnificently trimmed cloaks, which articles
he they have nact only made a speciality but are pre
pared to sell at prices which will succeesfully
ý° compete with any Soothern market; grenadines,
a chenille, poplin, broche shawls, and a host of
in- other fascinating articles so essential to a com
is plete wardrobe are displayed in tempting array,
r- and the lady who examines this beautiful stock
.g i and falls to make a purchase, most indeed be
ed difficult to please.
be So remember that a splendid stock of dry goods
a awaits your inspection at 685 Magasise street.
ed It will be seen by card elsewhere in our col
en umns, that Messrs. Johnson & Shields have suc
el ceeded to the business of the late Daniel Monroe,
n. undertaker. Of the personnel of the new frm
ler we can speak with hearty commendation. Mr
Francis Johnson, whose name comes first in the
.y firm, has been in the business for many years and
gis fully acquainted with all its details. Concern
to- lug Mr. Thos. H. Shields, our popular townsmsa,
wr whose career of pnblic usefulness as member of
Sthe public school board and in otAer capsacltes
as has given him an enviable fame, we feel it scarce
ng ly necessary to add a word. We only advert to
, his new enterprise, and feel that the mere men
is tion ehfh name is all that is required. We doubt
not his card will be read with interest by his
a many friends in the Masonic fraternity of whieh
rt be has log been a worthy member, and also the
re asseciation of Odd Fellows, of which order he
was for many years grand secretary. The new
firm retain the services of Mr. John Rea, so well
and favorably known with the old establishment.
In directing the attention of our readers to the
an advertisement of Meassrs. B. and C. Croner, which
H. appears in this morning's CRESCENT, we must em
aul orace the opportunity to add that it is not an
ie- every day occurrence for merchants to sell at
ily prices which these gentlemen are now olering
to their large and elegant stock. But few of their
ng patrons are probab!y aware that Mr. B. Croner,
to an associate rartner, has long resided in New
of York, where he not only attended to the purchas
or- ing of all good that they receive, but his practi
Iraping shi the advantages which are to be de.
r rived from a marke whose fluootuations are as va
se ried and frequent as that of our own ciay.
Ier o the:r establihment every article csn be ob·
Ice tainel which is comprised in their extensive cata
logue of dry goods, and their figures are such
lthat from a personal experience we can safely
ll prdict for thenm a patronage beyond thcr ex
Their assortment of dress goods is decidedly
the loveliest we have seen. Poplins of tberichest
rP, shades and colors, alpacas of all qualities, meri
s noes, both French and English and beautifully so
11 sorted, tamise cloths, empress cloths, together
ts, wth the most charming cloaks and brocheshawls,
sal constitute an array of matchless tste and ale
of gance which would be diflicult to excel.
[ In addition to their mlnai8'ent supply of
ag staple and fancy goods, we had almost
ye forgotten to mention that they had unitld
a separate and distinct line. such as carpeting,
matting, ra0gs, oil cloths, et . We were shown
Sa massive Brussels carpet (while in theia
Sstore recently) which was. without exception,
Sthe most elegant pattern we have ever beheld.
' The ground was a dark pea green, with a seces
ry salon of full blown tulips. interspersed with
Swreathe of ivy, although this is but a unt
among a large number of the rarest and loveliest
Sdesigns; therefore, remember our remarks,d
is when next you visit the diferet establishmeata
ts, of fshion in the vicinity of the Magasae Marhis
e call at No. 5;1, and rely on it that your apprecia
he tion for handsome goods will fsd saappropriate
occasion for demonstrating itself.
