Total Destruction of the Lake House.
Between ten and eleven o'clock yesterday
morning, the Lake Honse, end of the New
Canal, kept by Major Hoyt, waa completely
consumed by fire, and there are several cir
cumstances which indicate that servants in
the cook-room are implicated. The fire
commenced in the kitchen, and burned to
ward the front, and so furious were the
flames, that only a few articles of furnitnre
were saved, although had the employes ex
erted themselves, much valuable property
could have been taken out. The building
waa owned by the Canal and Banking Com
pany, and was insured far an amount which
will nearly cover the lose. Major Hoyt,who
owned the furniture, was not insured, and
his immediate loss is about ten or twelve
thousand dollars. The building was eighty
feet square, erected in 1832, and never was
a very profitable investment. The company
has taken little interest in it for years, and
when the news of the disaster reached the
stockholders, they were not particularly
excited. •* *
Major Hoyt returned from the North only
a few days ago, but had expended consider
able money on the place, anticipating
profitable season. He was not there at the
time of the disaster, and was not aware of
what had happened until he arrived at the
Halfway-house on his way down. Becently
tip experienced some difficulty with one of
his cook»and discharged him, and the situ
ation was temporarily filled by two men.
strangers to him, but who are intimate with
the former cook. As the fire broke out in
the kitchen, and at the time it did, when
there was no use for fires in the ranges, the
major entertains an opinion that the confla
gration was premeditated, and there are
other items which tend to confirm this sus
picion, whenit is known that one or two of
the waiters bore considerable animosity to
ward him. One of them, while the house
was burning said, "That is worth fifty dol
lars to me." The cooks made no efforts to
assist, but gathered up their own bundles
•and walked up to the Halfway-house, where
two of them were arrested, and last evening
were closely interrogated by Captain Bad
A large stable, opposite the hotel, was
burned, cinders.falling on it. It was owned
by the Canal Company. The hotel was con
sidered worth something like $15,000, and
the stable was worth the old lumber of
which it was constructed.
Major Hoyt intends to immediately erect
a temporary house, that he may still enter
tain a few of his many friends. His career
there has not been encouraging, as two
overflows and one fire testify, but he may
yet prove himself a phoenix.
Rather Amusing.—^. person was before
Recorder Houghton accused of a string of
trifling offenses. The prosecutor, too, as
cended the witness stand greatly impressed
with the importance of the charges. He
proceeded to detail his grievances, casting
in his private opinions concerning things
in general, using language of the loftiest
description, so very toploftical that the
court was unable to comprehend the issues.
The Recorder, after a surfise of five minutes,
wrote the word dismissed on the affidavit
and handed It to his clerk, and silently
informed the accused* B- 4 Wilkerson, who
was not slow to slip out, the prosecutor,
Charles F. Foster, still giving his testimony
in dictionary words.
After he had arrived in the vicinity of his
"secondly," he began to comprehend that
perhaps he was swearing to too many things
irrelevant to the subject. Finally Foster
nnderstood the case, when he concluded
that he would walk oij and say nothing fur
ther. _ .
To be Returned. —Lieutenant Governor
Dunn, as President of the Board of Police
Commissioners, has issued an order direct
ing that all property taken from the house
formerly occupied by G. M. Wickliffe, be re
turned—to who ? the "late lamented," or to
the house"?
Drowned.—A colored drayman, employed
by Van Orden & Co., last evening acci
dently fell into the river head of Adele
street and was drowned. His name was
not ascertained, nor was the body recov
ered. ' ' _
Sudden Death. —On the last trip of the
lake steamer Creole, Juan Gourdiola came
passenger from Biloxi. He took a cab at
the old railroad depot, Elysian Fields street,
intending to go to the Hotel Dieu, but the
cab had not gone maDy squares before he
expired. He was a native of Spain, about
forty years old. An inquest was held, when
it was ascertained that death was caused by
apoplexy. ____
Ready to Operate.— Habeas corpus has
proved friendly to Jack Killeen, and he is now
at liberty to operate. It would be a good
joke if he would to-night rob the house
of his attorney, or "go through" the
premises of the judge who released him.
It is not the fault of Recorder Staes that
Jack is free.
An Amiable Head. —That was a poetic
brute, residing on Greatmen street, who
recently took up position on the banquette
placing his meek wife on one side and an
innocent daughter on the other, ordering
them not to move unless he ordered them
threatening to brain them with a hatchet,
occasionally sending one off for a pitcher
of beer, which he guezied during the night.
This lamb-like parent should be treated to
something nice.__
Bottles as Weapons.— A knife or a pistol
constitute formidable weapons, and in the
hands of reckless persons are not to be
despised as "impartial" affairs. A bottle
wielded by an angry party is to be avoided,
if possible; but it was not quite possible for
Francis O'Neil to escape the well directed
blows of a bottle in the brawny hand of
Mike Cronan, for somebody had stepped on
his coat-tail. The O'Neil was like a suck
ing dove, roosting in the doorway of No. 1
Annunciation street, when up jumped the
Mike from space and lit into him with that
awful bottle, and had not the assailed been
good at fending strokes, would most likely
have been killed as dead aa one of those
ancient kings, his royal forefathers.
The entine matter was laid before Re
corder Houghton yesterday, and his natural
antipathy to bottles induced him to send
this highly interesting case to the Criminal
Court, where a jury will perhaps mete out
due punishment for that assault and bat
tery with a dangerous weapon. A bottle,
even in the most careful hands, has been
known to send the holder to a worse place.
Smuggling Cigars.— George McGinnis was
arrested on the levee, at one o'clock yester
day afternoon, by Corporal Roosen, on the
charge of smuggling five boxes of cigars
from the steamship Bufo^l. The accused
was locked up in the Pacanier station, and
will probably be sent before the -United
States Commissioner by Recorder Houghton
this morning.
Criminal CourY. —Vincentio Simondellio
was to have been tried for murdering Resario
Dimichelli, in Congo Square, but as the
State was not prepared, the trial was post
The same disposition was made in the
case of A. Darmini, charged with arson,
firing No. 27 Front street, as Attorney Gen
eral Belden was necessarily absent.
A motion to reduce the bonds in the case
against Jean Capdeyille and Julius Dubois
from $1000, resulted in Judge Abell kindly
raising the sum to $3000. They are indicted
for burglary and hircery.
The Muddt. —The river is not quite seven
feet below high water mark of 1802.
Not Discharged. — Although Captain
Cannon, of the steamboat R. E. Lee "went
off in smoke" last evening, he is not dis
Overflowing. — Recorder Staes' court"
room was so full of interested spectators
yesterday that legs, arms and feet hung out
of the doors and windows.
Irish Republican Club —This club held
its regular meeting last night, at Mechanics*
Institute. Among the distinguished per
sons present were Administrator Emley
Colonel Roy and General Campbell. En
thusiastic speeches were mads by General
Campbell, Professor Parker, Dr. Creamer
and several others. Communications were
read from Hon. P. F. Herwig, Adminis
trators West, Emley, Pierce, Delassize, Gen
eral Sypher, Captain Noble and others.
The Knife.— About dark last evening
Charles F. Thornton was taken to the third
precinct station, cat across his abdomen, as
he states, by a man named Daley, in a
Prytania street car, near Euterpe street. Dr,
Avila attended to his necessities, but con
eiders the wound not very bad. It does not
appear how Thornton, wounded, wandered
from Euterpe street down to Jackson Square
There is a mystery around the affair that
leads one t o suppose that the transaction
has a lengthy history.

The Robert E. Lee.
A correspondent of the Vicksburg Times
The Herald, puffs the Natchez about her
famous run, but if they will take the trouble
to look over some of those old papers, they
will perceive the Lee ran from New Orleans
to Vicksburg in twenty nine hours and a few
minutes; on another occasion she ran here
in thirty hours and forty minutes. The
latter run she made six landings from New
Ortaans to. Natchez, wooding—taxing on
seventy-eight cords of wood—losing sixty
four minutes; then made Natchez in nine
teen hours and ten minutes, which fsr ex
ceeds the time the Natchez made, with these
conditions. After leaving Natchez, she
made fourteen landings to Vicksburg, went
through "Old river," losing two hours; went
around Davi6* Bend, losing one hour. If
you will allow the Lee ten minutes for each
of the twenty landings, two hours by going
through Old river, sixty-four minutes by
wooding, you will perceive she lost (6) six
hours and (20) twenty minutes. Deduct
therefrom thirty hours and forty minutes,
and you will see she would have been in
Vicksburg in twenty-four hours and twenty
minutes—far, far ahead of the Natchez s
time. When the Lee ran she was not
trimmed for the tace like the Natchez was,
but the thirtieth of June will give the Lee
the honor due her.
The Hlver Not Shorter.
The careful Cairo correspondent of the
Cincinnati Commercial writes to that paper
as follows:
It is now generally conceded by all steam
boatmen who have given the subject much
thought, that the Mississippi river, from
New Orleans to 8t. Louis, is about the same
length at the end of every five or six years,
and the fact is explained as follows: During
that time every bend in the river has
lengthened a little—some very much—by
the constant caving in of the banks. This,
of course, makes the river longer. But at
intervals of about five years average a cut
off occurs, or a new chute is thrown open to
navigation, which shortens the river and
counterbalances the lengthening process.
This counterbalance is not thought of by the
casual observer, because the lengthening
process is going on daily and even hourly,
and is seldom spoken of, whereas the fact
of a new cut-off, shortening the river so
many miles, is published far and wide.
There have been enough cut-offs formed
since 1844 to have shortened the river
nearly three hundred miles, but for the
counteraction spoken of, and the distance
is the same to-day as then.
We learn this from a Washington dis
General Butler appeared before the Mili
tary Committee Saturday, with a long state
ment from the treasury, showing the
amount drawn for national asylums. The
whole sum has been nearly $4,000,000,
and over $1,000,000 is in good hands. He
stated that only in two cases had directors
had pay—one was resident manager at Day
ton, and the other at Milwaukee—and the
compensation was for actual service per
formed in superintending the construction
of buildings. The chances are that the in
vestigation will go over to the next session
for conclusion.

He had bowed down to drunkenness,
An abject worshipper,
The pulse of manhood's pride had gone,
Too faint and cold to stir;
And he had given his spirit up
Unto the humblest thrall;
And, bowing to the poisoned cup,
He gloried in his fall.
There came a change—the cloud rolled off,
Aad light fell on his brain—
And like the passing of a dream
That cometh not again,
The shadow of his spirit fled,
He saw the gulf before— _
He shuddered at the waste behind,
And was & man once more.
He shook the serpent's fold away,
That gathered round his heart,
As shakes the sturdy forest oak
Its poison vine apart;
He stood erect—returning pi^de
Grew terribly within,
And conscience eat in judgment on
His most familiar sin.
The light of intellect again
Along his pathway shone,
AntPrenson, like a monarch, stood
Upon its golden throne;
The honored and the wise once more
Within his presence came—
And lingered oft on lovely lips
His once forbidden name.
There may be glory in the might
That treadeth nations down—
Wreaths for the crimson warrior,
Pride for the kingly crown;
But glorious is that triumph nour
The disenthralled shall find,
When evil passion boweth down,
Unto the God-like mind.
The Man on tha Steeple—Hie 'Wonder
ful Escapee from a Violent Death.
(Fiom the Louisville Commercial.]
A number of people were watching in
tently yesterday the teats of a man upon the
steeple of the cathedral—the ease and in
difference with which he conducted himsef
at the dizzy hight, provoking many expres
sions of alarm, and wonder. This mans
Dame is DeLacy, and is in the employ of H.
W. Deshler. the proprietor of the Hull
L*ghtning Rod, on Jefferson street. De
Lacy was employed in endeavoring to throw
a rope over the cross on the steeple, to
assist in attaching a lightning rod on the
top of the cross. The man looked very
small, indeed, as he let himself down witn
a rope from an opening in the steeple.
There is a history connected with young
DeLacy which is both wonderful and
terrible. . _ ~ .
i. During the late war he was in the Confed
en»te service, and frequently active as a spy,
He was caught by the Federal forces In
Georgia, taken to Savannah, we believe,
tried, convicted and sentenced to be shot.
He was accordingly ordered to be executed
on a given day, the order being carried out.
He fell before the firte of a file of soldiers
pierced through the body with bullets. He
was supposed to be dead, and carried away
in his coffin by two men, who, while con
veying him to a place of burial, thought
that signs of life were visible. An examina
tion of the body proved their surmises to be
well founded. Instead of being buried, he
was taken to the house of au old colored
woman, who nursed him for several months
when he recovered.
After the war he was employed by the
Bridge Company here, and fell ene day from
the Highest point of the structure into the
river, which he reached, fortunately, feet
foremost; rising to the surface of the water
after his fearful fall, he managed to reach
some place of safety, where he found his
injuries to be slignt.
Yesterday, this man, who. it teem', is re
served by fate for some death other than by
violence or accident, was cartering around
in mid- air attempting to do the hazardous
work undertaken, showing no trepidation
or fear. What need he fear after his past
experience ? He is probably doomed to die
in his bed from old age, as accident and
bullet have failed to rid him of life.
