This is a subject that greatly interests our entire country, and especially the Southern States, where timber decays so rapidly in such a warm and damp climaie. Railroads are among the greatest losers by this rapid decay, for their bridges, wharves, cross-ties and other timbers will not last on an average more than tive years, when the entire wood work has to be re placed, at an enormous expense to the com pany. This great loss can be prevented l>y using N. H. Thomas'patent wood preserver. This wonderful discovery is cheap and ef fective, for by the application of his wood preserver timber will positively last more than four times as long as it does in its natural state, thus saving to the company vast amounts of money that they now lose. This is not a matter to let pass without the careful and candid examination of railroad men and other builders. One fact should not be overlooked, aud that is, Thomas' process will positively prevent the destruc tion of timber by salt water worms, for it has been tested five years, and not one par ticle of damage was visible, while it is a well known fact that piles will not last in salt water more than two years when put down in their natural state. This process is also invaluable for floors in stores and dwelling houses, as it prevents decay and keeps insects of all kinds, which are very annoying to housekeepers, from accumu lating in and around the buildings. Mr. Thomas is now ready to form a stock company for a few of the Gulf States on the most liberal terms. Books will be opened at his office, No. 32 Carondelet street, on Monday, the twellth instant, for subscrip" tion to stock. Samples of preserved timber will bo shown to all who desire to see them, at the office, and other information given that may be desired. For further informa tion, address N. H. Thomas, patentee, New Orleans, or l'eter Welch, agent, St. Louisi Missouri. The Overflow. Yesterday tlie work of relieving the suf ferers by the overflow was continued with the same liberality and excellent organiza tion as before. Subscriptions have come in generously since the list was opened by Messrs. Cavaroc, Fortier and Slocouib. Private individuals and associations have contributed freely to aid the sufferers. The Economy and Mutual Aid Associa tion have been supplying two hundred cooked rations daily to Administrators Deiassize, Bouzano and Lewis, for distribu tion among the overflowed sufferers, and they will continue to do it as long as it is necessary. The tender of these supplies was made by Mr. L. l'essou, chairman, and J. Abeillard, E. Berthelot, Ed. Davis and William Vigers. The water has subsided a few inches since yesterday. Steam engines were pumping again yesterday into the New and Old canals. Only one or two squares be yond Claiborne street are yet accessible on dry land. Compliment to a Retiring Revenue Officer. A pleasant party of gentlemen met to gether at room No. 5 St. Charles Hotel, on Friday night, for the purpose of witnessing the ceremony of presenting an elegant gold watch and chain to Captain John 8. Chap man, late Internal Revenue Collector for the Second District. Messrs. L. C. Allison. A. J. Whittier, O. H. Hempstead and L. H. Burdick, who have been Deputy Collectors under Captain Chapman during his entire term of office, from June 1, 1869, were the donors. They wished their late chief to take with him, on the occasion of separat ing from them officially, a pleasant sou venir of their personal and official inter course during the past two years. A basket or two of Krug materially contributed to the enlivenmeut of the occasion. Colonel J. S. Conklin, Supervising Special Agent, was one of the invited guests present. Give Fecundity to tbe Soil. The fertilizing compound, manufactured only by the Louisiana Fertilizer Manufac turing Company, is represented to be the most productive fertilizer ever used, and will effectually exterminate all insects which iufest gardens, plantations and farms. It will also destroy the cotton worm, making this fertilizing compound in dispensable to the farmer, planter and gardener. The office of the company is No. 122 Carondelet street, up stairs, where sub scription to the capital stock of tbe com pany will be received, and at tbe offices of the directors, as announced in to-day's paper. See advertisement headed " Louis iana Fertilizer Manufacturing Company." Picnic at Kenner. The Jackson Railroad Mutual Benevolent Association will finally give their picnic at Kenner to-day, whatever may be tlie state of tbe weather. Immense preparations have been made for this picnic by the associa tion, and they have lost nothing by tbe delay which the weather has caused. Trains will leave the depot at seven and nine o'clock in the morning, and at two o'clock in the afternoon. We predict a time of keen enjoyment for all who visit the picnic at Kenner to-day. The Fisher Refrigerator. —Among the things almost indispensable to a family keeping house in this city is a good re frigerator. Our warm, damp climate will decompose meats and vegetables so rapidly that unless some means are adopted by which they can be protected, tbe losses upon them will prove ruinous to a poor man. Besides, ice water and other cool drinks can not be done without, especially in cases of sickness, and if a person has to buy ice every time they wish a pitcher of ice water, the fullest purse will soon become empty. Among the best refrigerators we have ever seen is that known as "Fisher's refrigerator," and exhibited at the corner of Carondelet and Common streets. They not only perfectly preserve meats and vege tables placed in them, hut the ice is kept and economized to a wonderful extent, while a constant supply of ice water is always on hand. We advise housekeepers to go and look at them, as, in our opinion, one will save its cost in a short time in any family. The Public Schools.— Parents, teachers, pupils, ladies, gentlemen, lads and misses can make liberal arrangements at Dolbear Commercial College, Nos. 164 and 166 Canal street, to learn penmanship, book keeping, mathematics, etc., during the summer. Third Day of the Carrollton Institute. The institute was opened at the appointed time with devotional exercises. The hall was again tilled with an attentive audience. There were several teachers present from New Orleans, some of whom took an active part in the exercises. The flrst on the programme of exercises for the day was an address on "Method of Teaching physical and Political Geography" and an exercise in map drawing on the blackboard by Miss Warner, of New Or leans. In drawing her maps. Miss Warner first drew construction lines, then located boundaries, rivers, lakes, cities, islands, etc., with great accuracy. Next came a lesson in botany, by Miss Morris. A large assortment of flowers and leaves had been procured, thus enabling her to give a practical lesson in this science. She gave examples, showing how this branch may be taught the little ones. Mr. William Bartlett, Professor of Phon ography, followed, giving a lesson in this art, at the close of which nearly all present could read the words and sentences the pro" lessor wrote on the blackboard. After a recess of half an hour, Rev. Wil: liam Rollinson delivered an address on "School Discipline - ' bject every teacher must be interested in. He said the first duty of every teacher is to get the pupil's love, but that love may not degener ate into weakness; it must be associated with justice; that praise judiciously dis posed is one of tbe best incentives to obe dience. He gave as one of the best methods to obtain good discipline in school this rule: "Stimulate whatever of good your pupils display, and reprove what is wrong, but do it kindly." Mr. Stoddard thanked the teachers for their live interest, promptness and atten tion from the commencement to the close of the institute. He said he felt confident that those who attended this institute, and would lie present at the others in the sev eral divisions of the State, would rank it second to none; that he expected the suc cess attained because he knew his teachers. The question was asked if any one was present by compulsion. Mr. Hurd arose, stating that his friend from St. John was about the only case, having been compelled to lose the first two days because the steamboat he came down on wag blown against a raft in the strong wind. The following resolutions speak for them selves. particularly as coming from and offered by some of the teachers voluntarily: Whereas, We, the teachers of the second division, at our institute assembled, believe that our coming together has been lor our good anil the promotion of a greater in terest and zeal in our profession, and that a very important part of the benefits we have received is due the very able man ner in which Miss HattieN. Morris has con ducted the exercises upon and illustrated what we consider improved methods of teaching some of the brunches of education, and being convinced that her abilities as a teacher have been greatly underrated, and that she has been grossly misrepresented by some of tbe members of the New Orleans institute and press; therefore Rcsolceil, That we express our apprecia tion of the services of Miss Morris bv ten dering to her the sincere thanks ot this in stitute and expressing the hope that at some future period the pleasure now en joyed may be renewed, and Resolced, That a copy of these resolutions be presented to Miss Morris, also to the Louisiana Stale Register and the New Or leans Republican for publication. Adopted unanimously. A motion of thanks to Rev. William Roll inson, Dr. Clark, Professor Bartlett, Miss Warren, and others who assisted at the in stitute, was carried. It was decided to hold an institute of this division in six months from now. notice of which will be given. Institute adjourned. Effects of the Gale. Tbe gale of Friday night aud yesterday had the effect to increase the depth of water in the canals, to interfere with the comfort of the people in the little village of Milne burg, and to drive water from the lake into the rear of the Third District. The mail from Manchac via the lake did not arrive in the morning when due, but did get in during the day. The Texas mail also failed. Trains are and were yesterday run ning regularly on the Mobile road, not withstanding the apprehension that a small portion of the track might be sub merged. St. diaries Theatre. Ben DeBar, now in Montreal, has kindly tendered the use of the St. Charles Theatre to aid in relieving the sufferers by the over flow, and the Orleans Dramatic Relief As sociation will give a performance there for that purpose next Tuesday evening. The "Marble Heart" will be presented, with an appropriate and excellent cast. A Fortune in a Box of Paper Collars. Ideas are certainly valuable things. One good one will as surely win a fortune as that two and two make four. Now the idea to inclose money in boxes of paper collars as an inducement to buyers is a brilliant idea, and it will result in large profits to the originator. Of course it is one of tbe coups of Moody. Nobody else could have thought of it, or if they did, were bold enough to take the risk. He will sell mil lions of boxes of collars, and give away in them hundreds of thousands of dollars. How does he make his money ? We do not know how he does it; but he does, that's certain. The money will be found in every box, that's positive. If anybody doubts this let them get a box. A Card to Merchants. —All who wish to promote faithful clerks can make liberal arrangements at Dolbear Commercial Col lege, Nos. 164 and 166 Canal street, to have them speedily qualified as head bookkeepers. See card. The steamboat Indiana, which arrived last night from Louisville, reports having met the Katie at twenty-five minutes past eight o'clock thirty miles above New Or leans. The Katie is running against time. Go to No. 6 Carondelet street and buy an "Ice King Refrigerator," if you wish fresh meats and vegetables and plenty of ice water all summer. They are the best ever invented. Seaside Hotel, Bay St. Louis.—T his de lightful and newly built hotel is now open to the public. Families can be accommo dated with large and well ventilated suits of rooms, the best bathing, and the table will be supplied with every-delicacj season. Terms very moderate. :y of the Ovation to Professor .Morse. There was, last night, in all the tele graphic offices ,a sympathetic ovation to Professor Morse, extending all over the American continent, and far beyond to those remote regions, with which in former times it required months to communicate, but which, since the invention of the time annihilating telegraph, are within the reach of communications requiring but a few minutes. Yesterday at twelve o'clock the statue erected in honor of Professor Morse, to whom the world is indebted for commercial facilities exceeding the wildest dreams of a couple of generations ago, was inaugurated with appropriate ceremonies in Central Park, New York. Every arrangement had been made to make the ceremony most im pressive. not the least of which was to send at a given hour a telegram, dictated and signed by Professor Morse himself, to all parts of the civilized world. As the momentuous hour approached when one mortal man standing at an ap pointed spot on the surface of the globe was to hold familiar converse with people afar off m remote lands, the interest became in tense. Assembled in the operating room of tbe New Orleans telegraphic office on Camp street were a number of gentlemen, among whom tbe daily press of New Orleans was duly represented. Pending tbe preparations of the crowning telegraphic event about to be consummated, we were supplied by Mr. Flanery, superin tendent of tbe telegraph in this city, with a large amount of curious information re specting telegraphic matters among us. For instance, we find that there are at pres ent in the United States 73,271 miles of tele graph line; 150,813 miles of wire stretches to all parts of the country, and 5914 offices throughout the country. The branch in New Orleans employs full fifty persons in all the various departments. The follow, ing constitute the corps of operators: Superintendent, D. Flanery; chief day operator, C. Dwyer; chief night operator, James Newall; cashier, J. T. Alleyn; oper ators, Taylor Adams, William J. Landy, Albert S.' Avres, Alexander K. Sinnott. William D. West, Henry Stanberv, Harry J. Fische, Charles D. Thomas, John 1?. Wright, Ed. P. Whitlord, John Swindell, John K. Dunbar, John L. Jones, Alexander Wark, James McCormack, J. D. Smith. At length the peculiar tick of the talking machine announced the message which Pro fessor Morse was to send to all part6 of the world. In a moment it came as follows: THE MESSAGE. Greeting and thanks to the telegraph fraternity throughout the world. Glory to God in the highest earth: peace and good will to men. S. F. B. MORSE. This was immediately followed by tbe fol lowing answer from ihe New Orleans office: THE RESPONSE. To him. whose lightnings have enlight ened the world, whose ways are in the sea, whose paths are in mauy waters; to Morse, the telegraphers of New Orleans offer their congratulations. For tbe fraternity. DAVID FLANERY. Tlie above message was dictated and signed by Professor Morse, and manipu lated by Miss F. Marriott, tbe same lady who dictated the first message ever seut over any line in tbe United States. This occurred on the twenty-fourth of May, 1844. and the message was sent from Baltimore to Washington. Wonderful improvements have been made since that time; for the telegraph at tlie present time is actually a talking machine. The operator at this sta tion listens to the click-clack of the machine, produced at a thousand miles distance, and the click is intelligent to him as language. While the operators in New Orleans were reading the message from the inventor, hundreds of offices in all parts oi the conti nent were doing likewise. After the message had been received the politeness of Mr. Superintendent Flanery relieved itself by copious refreshments of' fered to the company, after which they re' tired. Base Ball Festival at the Park. Tlie grand base ball festival by tbe Lone Star Base Ball Club, postponed from Sunday last, will take place at the park to-day. The programme has been arranged with an especial view to excellence, and we can as sure those who attend a day of rare enjoy ment. At ten o'clock in the morning the second nines of the Lees and Stars will play for a pair of handsome silk foul flags. The afternoon's entertainment will open with a match between the Stars and R. E. Lees, to be followed by games between the Stars and Southerns, aud Crescents and Quicksteps. These matches will be of three innings each. Prizes, to consist of gold badgesf will be offered for throwing a regulation ball, run ning the bases, and a foot race of one hun dred yards. A gold badge will be given to the player making the greatest number of base hits. The Stars expect to leave New Orleans this week on their second annual tour, and the festival is given for the purpose of de fraying expenses. Let there be a general turn-out to give the "boys in plaid" substantial support and a hearty send-off. Vaudeville Theatre Artists. The artists of the Vaudeville Theatre gave a performance at the Mechanics' Insti tute, last evening, for the benefit of tbe sufferers by tbe overflow. The attendance was very fair, and the performances (chiefly in French) excellent. After tbe theatrical performance there was a grand ball, attended by many ladies and gentlemen, who danced all night till broad daylight. Amo g those at the theatrical perform ance were Senator Pinchbaek, Captain William H. Green, of the Louisiana State Militia, and many other prominent citizens. The proceeds of the theatrical entertain ment and the ball will help to swell the contributions to tbe relief fund. New Orlenns. Mobile and Texas Railroad.
