ALICE CARY*8 SWEETEST POEM.
Of all the beautiful pictures
That hang on Memory's wall,
Is one ot a dim old forest.
That seemeth best of ail:
Not for its gnarled oaks olden,
Dark with the mistletoe;
Not for tlie violets golden
* That sprinkle the vale l»elo , n ;
Not for the milk white lilies
That lean from the fragrant hedge,
Coquetting all day with the sunbeams,
And stealing their golden edge;
Not for the vines on the upland.
Where the bright red berries rest;
Nor tlie pinks, nor the pale, sweet cowslip.
It seemetb to um the best.
I once had a little mother.
With eyes that were dark and deep—
In the lap of that olden forest
lie lietli iu pace asleep:
Light as the down of the thistle,
Free as the w mils that blow,
We roved there the beautiful summers.
The summers of long ago ;
But his feet on the hills grew weary,
And one of the autumn eves
I made for my little brother
A bed of the yellow leu.\ < s.
Sweetly his pale arms folded
Mv neck in u meek embracf,
As the light ol' immortal beauty
Silently covered his face;
And when the arrows of sunset
Lodged in the tree-tops bright
He fell, in his saint-like beauty,
Asleep by the gates of light.
Therefore, of all the pictures
That hang on memory's w all,
The one of the dim old forest
Seemeth best of all.
"A like on the grand c anal."

Fora sight of the old tow-path.
Where is beard the driver's song,
-fud his hearty,careless laugh.
The stout boat plows her way,
Drawn by the brave' old team.
While far o'er head, in tioeks.
The circling night lnrds scream:
Tlie farmer may till his fields,
Aud others do as they will.
But give nu- the old canal.
Whose waters are never still.
First Natiounl Bank.
This bunk bus now been in tlie hands ol'
the Receiver, Colonel Case, for nearly four
years, anil, as yet, no dividend has been
declared, though Colonel Case has been
anxious to expedite tlie liquidation and set
tlement of its affairs. The delay lias arisen
from the fact that claims against the bank
Lave been set up iu behalf of the United
States, which, if allowed, would absorb al
most its entire assets. These claims have
been eontested in a suit brought by the
creditors of the bank against the Con
troller of the Currency, which was argued
before the Supreme Court of the United
States, hist Tuesday, by the Solicitor
General and Assistant Attorney General for
the government, and by Henry B. Kelly.

creditors. It is thought a decision will he

BELIEF OF FBENCH SUFFEREBS
Appeal to Human Sympathy
UnARITY CONTRIBUTIONS TO-DAY
To-day will be sanctified by a holy
eliaritv; for not only throughout the city,
but throughout the broad country, in
churches of every denomination, differing
widely in various points of faith and doc
trine, there will be a union of common
benevolence, the object of which is to
succor the famishing thousands now suf
fering under the miseries that war has
brought upon unhappy France.
It is not necessary for the public journals
to commend this work ot holy charity to
the attention of the benevolent. The mere
mention that such a collection is to be
made will open the hands of thousands;
and there is something the more inspiriting
in the circumstance that the charitable
efforts of to-day will pervade the broad
Union, and that from every quarter benevo
lent hands v ili contribute to save a gallant
people from the famine and pestilence that
is assailing them. The pure charity which
we have now the opportunity to exercise is
far removed from all partakings of sectarian
ism or of party feeling.
Their differing wide apart in religions or
political views ean make common cause
in extending aid to a gallant people pros
trated to earth l>y no fault of their own,
of starving thousands guiltless of wrong,
but on whose innocent heads the storm of
war falls with the same unrelenting force
as it visits the armed warrior in the field.
I; is earnestly hoped that no hand will lie
held back from this good work, but that all
will give freely, as the Lord has prospered
them. There has never been a nobler field
for lienevolence since America became a
It may be hoped, too, that the contribu
tions to the unfortuunte victims of war will
not be confined to the frequenters of the
churches aione, but that many will attend,
if it be only for the purpose of swelling the
contributions. "He that hath pity upon

which he hath given will He pay him

Alabama the strip of country lying between

cypress, and including the harbor of Pen

Tlie Jackson Railroad—An Accommoda
tion Train to be Put Oil.
The new management of the New Or
leans, Jackson and Great Northern rail
road have done everything possible to
accommodate through travel and to facili
tate the speedy transmission of through
mails. They have done excellent well,
anil deserve due credit therefor. Now,
over the Mississippi Central and Jackson
road, Colonel McComb being president of
both corporations, there is no detention at
Canton because the. trains fail to connect
as they run between Humboldt to New Or
leans without change.
This remedies the delays tha* previously
existed when mails and passengers were
detained from six to twelve hours waiting
lor the departing train from Canton in either
direction. The result is, that wc have re
ceived our New York and Western mails
with surprising regularity, au«l passengers
have not been compelled to wait over and
seek the accommodation of wayside hotels.
There was, however, one difficulty to be
bridged over, and that was the incon
venience and vexation arising from the
occasional necessity of waiting at local
stations one, two, three, four and five hours
for the incoming through trains. There
was hut one way to avoid this evil, and
that was the establishment of an accommo
dation train to run between New Orleans
aud Canton, or some other point on the
road. The condition of the track aad the
insufficiency of the rolling stock have prob
ably had some effect in delaying the estab
lishment of a local train, but we now learn
that an accommodation train will be run
through the summer by the New Orleans,
Jackson and Great Northern Railroad Com
pany to Magnolia and all intermediate sta
tions, to arrive in New Orleans iu time for
business, and return in the evening, and
that season and commutation tickets will
lie sold at rates to encourage summer travel
to local points on the line of the road.
Calcasieu Sulphur .nines.
Tlie Picayune says in reference to tlie
Calcasieu sulphur mines:
Having recently indulged in one or two
little pleasantries at the expense of the
Calcasieu sulphur mines, we propose in re
turn to give a few brief facts concerning
the respects of the working of the same by
the company formed in this city.
There were placed upon exhibition, yes
terday. at the office of the company on Car
ondelet street, a number of glass jars con
taining specimens of the crude and analyzed
sulphur obtained from the several strata of
the mine, which had the effect of bringing
together qititp a number of gentlemen in
terested in the Calcasieu milling project.
From the labels upon the jars and the ac
companying chart upon which the various
strata are worked, it was snow u that the
strata which yields the greatest results, viz:
ninety-six aud one-fourth per centum of
pure sulphur, is situated at a depth of four
hundred and eighty-six feet, extending
downward to a depth of four hundred aud
The extent ot the various strata, the de
posits from which, when mixed together,
produce eighty per cent of pure sulphur, is
one hundred aud twelve feet in depth.
When the first shaft was sunk the sulphur
was reached at a depth ol lour hundred and
In the present shaft, which is situated
about uue hundred aud titty feet from tlie
former, the sulphur was not reached until a
depth of four hundred and forty-two feet
had been attained.
Tlie engineer of the company, we are in
formed, is to leave iu a few days for Europe,
for the purjiose of having a cast iron shaft
constructed, after the plan of a recent in
vention by a French aud Belgian engineer,
said shafts having the reputation of being
by far the best now constructed for many
purposes. The company expect to be in full
operation at the roinineneemeut of the new
vear, and we are afraid wc should not be
believed, if we were to give an idea of tlie
profits they confidently predict will arise
from their work during the first season
A somewhat careful estimate places the
value of the sulphur already discovered in
the grounds of the company at thirty-five
million dollars. The capital stock is seven
hundred and fifty thousand dollars, and no
increase of capital will be required to bring
the rich products of the mines to the surface
of the earth, from whence it may lie ship
ped to the markets of the world.

tlie occasion of the complimentary conceit
given to Miss Melanie May by lier pupils.
It is exceedingly gratifying to say that tlie
concert was a most complete success in
every sense. The music was judiciously
selected and splendidly executed, and it is
not possible to name any portion of the per
formance undeserving of the highest praise
Mr. Chase delighted the audience with
his splendid performance of "the Star of
Love," aud the "Rose Bush." Madame
Blache was in excellent voice, and it would
be difficult indeed to surpass the soprano
aria liv Donizetti, or the duet "La Fee au
Roses," performed with Mr. Uassard.
Ihe interest of the evening concentrated,
however, upon the pcrlorwauee of Miss
May s pupils, particularly the overture for
eight hands. We think that any competent
judge of the subject would acknowledge
that the touch, time and expression dis
played by the pupils of Miss May are indis
putable proof that she is a teacher of re
markable talent; a teacher, not only, but a
pianist whose brilliancy of execution and
delicacy of touch, combined with true
artistic feeling of the theme, has been sel
dom equaled, still more seldom surpassed.
We sincerely hope that this concert will
lead to a wider appreciation of Miss May as
a very superior instructor on the piano.

The Herald says editorially: "Until yes

Yesterday evening a prominent Republican

that the quarrel between President Grant
