How fa*-y to j>ay the taxofl—it you < ali earn the money! Bhiliii Hoerzel, £!'<;■. ll-'ur, corn ami rice dealer, No. Poydraa street, ami mills Nos. 2C8 and -70 Tohouj.i tjuiafc street, was a German emi^ranL who came to this city about twenty-hve yeais ■ a f n. He was very poor, and had n<- i'rienila bat his brain and hands. For two years he worked as an ordinary laborer at anythin*; he could pet to do. At the end oi that time he hired a small room in a sinai! Louse which is still standing on Tchoupitoulas street. E;S rent was $4 a month, and he commenced businef9 bv grinding corn in a band mill. He employed no help, hut did bis own grinding, buying and selling, and lived m the room. In a year he was able to pur chase a horse, and by this heip ran his mill a year and a half, fie fed Lis hi-roe from the unsalable bu* nutritious refuse irom the grain. He then procured a very small engine and run it in the same building. Nothing went to waste with him, lor at the end of five more years he erected a five story rice mill on the other side of the street. He drew the plans of the building himself. Watching the growth oi Lis busi ness, he was able to devise and construct many improvements, email in themselves, but so advantageous in the aggregate that two men are able to attend to the rice from The time it enters the hopper, through jts five ascents to the top of the building, until it descends polished and marketable. In many other rice mills of no greater ca pacity—for thiB has produced eighty-three barrels in eighteen hours—from ten to six teen Lands are employee! to do, the same we-rk. Mr. Hoelzel is now engaged in put ting in the machinery for a second mill of greater capacity. Besides his rice business he, Las two dour mills under the same roof, with which, when not running the former, he can produce 200 barrels of Hour in twenty-four Lours. He sells large .juanrities of bran, corn, meal. etc. His brands. "Lou isiana Flour and Kite Mills," are known wherever the articles are uBed. He still lives under the roof of his mill, with his family and employes. But, in stead of the little cramped house where he worked by hand. Lis family occupy one part of the building, the large and airy rooms ol which are furnished with every comfort, convenience and luxury which respectable and intelligent people require. We observed the piano, sewing ipachiue, gas chandeliers, with other indications of independent circumstances. We can our selves testify to the excellent hospitality of the gentleman whose guest for the moment we were, and found he has a genial glass of as good wine as could be met with any where. But. in all this establishment, every member of the family does a part, and the business is made in evety respect to minis ter to the comfort and interest of the household. The steam boiler which now impels the work commenced at first by hand, carries water all over the house. The eondenser gives pure drinking water, flow ing from a cock beside one that discharges rives water. Two bath-rooms, with hot and cold water, one of which may be used as a steam bath, or a steam boiler for cooking purposes. The Fame steam that contributes to his wealth and comfort provides for his safety, for it t:!s with water an immense tank on tbo roof, with Lose leading to all parts of the budding, and is capable not only of putting out a lire there, bu; of saving the neighborhood. The poultry, pigeons and pigs may be seen in the paved quadrangle below. The mules of the establishment are plump and well liarneRsed. His numerous teams are still led from his mill as his first horse was. The culinary and boarding departments f<;r the employes are under the superinten dence ei the ladies of the family, and when the bell rings fos meals ail the employes come from above or below to their abundant and comfortable meals. It is just for all tiie world as if Mr. Iloelzel had continued in Germany or Switzerland and conducted the milling business. N*t that he was likely ever to have owned any mill if he had not emigrated to America'. Fronting on the street, in the basement of the building, is a store, though the prin cipal store of Mr. Hoelzel is at No. -17 Foy" dr.is street. The financial business of the null is conducted by a son ol' Mr. Hoelzel. His other oons are engaged in other depart ments of his business. Mr. Hoelzel is rich. Bu: while he can stand a; his door and see the little house where he first became his own master, he will "never alter the sys tem of thrift, economy and attention to bus.ness which has produced the contrast.

Uer. Joseph D. Adame, pastor of the Mo reau Street Methodist Episcopal Church South of New Orleans, died at Biloxi on the morning of July 26. He had eerved faithiuily in the ministry for twenty-seven years, and was, previous to his transfer to this city in 1872, presiding elder of the Ope Ioosm district. AFFAIR'S IN GRANT PARIsIH. Governor Kellogg Las received the fol lowing gratifying report from Grant par ish: Colfax. La-July 14,78. J. Bon W. ;;att P. .Kt-i egg. GoverLo: if ti e Stale of Lou. tan*. New OiYane: Hear Sir—T hrough the uu.ny transitions which we have of late passed. :t is worthy of note that there is evident;! a marked change for the better iu this, our heretoiore turbulent parish. A* our district court, which stands ad journed until the twenty-fourth instant, were present citizens from all parts oi the parish. The utmost harmony prevailed, and ail, with few exceptions, evinced the most kici.iy feeding and disposition of recog nizing the supremacy of the law. and ren dering a willing support to our ;.ai.sh ani. State- governments. There was a general attetdance of jurors summoned. The grand jury, as drawn, stood ten colored to six white?, who, after an stile charge from the court, diligently appl.ed themselves to 'he discharge of their duties. The palish court, which was ais* in session part of the time, adjourned to day having Leid'four regular terms quietly and unmolested. Several prominent attorneys were pres ent and business was conducted with proper decorum, there being a number of suits on the civil docket as well as probate matter disposed of. On the wucle". the condition of our parish is gratifying as may be, considered us an earnest of a better state of affairs in the future. I' has been, and will continue to be 1 , ilt ct-jeet to cultivate friendly relations with all classes, and endeavor to harmon ize the discordant elements in our midst. To this end everything would seem pro pitious. With a vast extent of the most productive soil, crops, unusually promising, health uood. the people sober and indus trious. I confidently heiieve that this, our parish, highly favored of Providence, will speedily be redeemed from the odium that has, in "some instances, unjustly attached to it. Ti.e disturbed condition and erroneous reports thereof, together with the interest manifested by your excellency in our wel fare. 1 offer as an apology for thus intrud .ng on your much taxe»l time. With much respect, I have the honor to remain vbur exctliencv's obedient servant, * K. C. REGISTER. Fine Art* nnd the Drama, Last evening at the Varieties Theatre assembled a goodly company, invited rLither by "La Varietie Association" to view the now drop curtain just completed. Many of . our notables were there, our wealthy patrons-of art and of the drama, many of the members of the Orleans Dra matic and Shakespeare Clubs. Ai! feasted their eyes upon the beautiiui production of the artist and joined in one nnan.mcus ver dict of approval. Mr. Piggof. the artist, may well fee! proud to have thus achieved success, and evoked hearty commendation from the most fastidious of cur di'ettunti. and the most exacting of our critics. The subject chosen for the new drop is "An cient •Italy, after the celebrate*painting by Turner. There is the City of the Seven Hills, the ytilrw Tibre, spanned by a mas. sive bridge. In the foreground Ovid's tomb, in front of it offerings of fruits and armor piled. Plashing fountains relieve the sombreness of tbe massive buildings. And the weatli ol goiden glory that pours down from the setting sun, making the rippling water all aglow, flooding citadel and forum and capitol with mellow light—all these combine to charm, and cause one to linger and iook. and look and linger still. La Variete Association have done much for tLe drama. Our people are indebted to them for the cosiest and finest theatre for its size on the continent. But in this new adjunct to the mimic art they have offered a crowning proof of their iiberality and good taste. The Grnunn Gnzetlr, Yesterday was the twenty-fifth birthday of our friend and neighbor the Gnman 6V: ztiie. It was established as a daily paper August 1, 1848, by Joseph Cohn, who sev ered his connection in 1851. when the paper became the property of a company consist ing of M*r •srs. Massinger, Pfeiffer, Franks. Richter and Kapp. In 1857 Messrs. Pfeiffer k Hassinger became the owners, in 1806 Mr. Jacob Hassinger became sole proprie tor, and ha? conducted it ever since. During all the time ho has been connect ed with the paper he has been adding to his circle of warm friends, and there are none warmer or more devoted than his learned, efficient and mercurial editorial staff. Ins enterprising and accurate finan cial agents, painstakiug and hard-working compositors and pressmen down to the mi croscopic Mephistopbeles. in whose eyes the boss occupies the topmost round of a veri table Jacob's ladder. Angels may not be circulating up and down it, but yesterday's pleasing thoughts Ailed e.ach employe with such honest pride, anil faith, and hope, and charity toward all outside newspaperdom that was not so fortunate as they, that a wing came very near sprouting on each shoulder blade. It.wasn't exactly a silver wedding, but the strings of each heart seemed tied in the strongest kind of knots around ail .the others, and matyimony couldn't have bound them any closer. And it was celebrated as silver weddings ought to be. Mr. Hassinger, genial soul, thought every one needed something to make them as happy as lie waS. and he gave if with the free hand that harmonizes so well with his heart. Keep it up, sir 1 May you and the G;t:cHc have golden and diamond weddings, and may many cycles of twen'y-five years each, roll round before we lose either of you. Or. as the Spun sh proverb has it. "May you born live a thousand years and your shadow never glow less!" A Prussian Amazon has appeared on the theatre of war in Spain. A Valentia news paper say-: "We have had the pleasure of seeing the Prussian heroine announced, who will, it is said, command a battalion of voluuteers against the Carlists. She is well grown, hardly twenty-live years old, has a rather pretty face, and blonde hair. She wore a long upper gaiment, long riding trousers, and a Phrygian cap. and carried a cavairy sword. We do not know whether she will remain here or go to Barcelona." 5Iat... ' r Browne tells the Englishmen rli.it r \i I matter with them: "While we h*»t; . -.' turning our eyes," yays he. "upon . fi.' more uhvions and vulgar evils attendant upon the free use of alcohol, we have been overlooking the insidious action of a bland and peaceful liquid which has been sapping the foundations of manhood and honesty. Alcohol send* a few to the jail Tir to the madhouse. But tea acts through the nervous system upon the con science, and turns us into a nation of sneaks." Board of Health, • The regular meeting of the Board of Health <ccnrred last evening. Dr. C. B. White in the chair. Present—Drs. Drew, Finney. Newman. Suit the and White, and Messrs. Ba.iey, Walton and Woodward. The report* ot the tanitnry inspectors wire read. Dr. E. is. Drew, ol the First District, fin ished tLe Louse inspection July Jt. Only three cases of small-pox occurred in the district. The premises have been thor ;hiv disinfected. No yellow fever or cholera. Mrs. Jane Bragg refuses to obey the* board or the eider of court. Batture I t. Delta street, between the depots of the NVw Orleans. Mobile and Texas railroad and New Oilcans, Jackson and Great Northern railroad, is reported as a cess pool :n consequence of the square occupied by the latter company completely blocking the drainage. Inspection* made 1.78; eases of small-pox three. Dr. C'ark, of the Second District, reports five cases of small-pox and several eases of choleraic disease of comparative unimport ance. He thauks the city Administrators for assistance rendered. The batture in front of tbe French Market is reported as a nuisance, it having been made a receptacle for refuse trom the maiket. A wharf is iecommended for this locality. Inspections made u089. No yellow l'evtr. A list of twenty places was submitted as requiring the action of the board. Dr. Newman submitted a report of the condition of the Thiid District. The in calculable benefits of opening the water plugs is commented on. Hose pipe* are needed to flood the opposite sides of the street. Tbe city can not be healthy unless water flows through the drains two or thiee hours in the twenty-four. The rate of mor tality Las decreased. Suiall-pox is entirely under subjection. Only one case of cholera morbus occurred during the month. In fantile diseases are decreasing. Inspection* 2450. Small-pox cases ten. Dr. Perry, of the Fourth District, says be has had no choleraic diseases. One ca.-e of small pox. Inflections made, 1775. Mr. Chester reports the Fifth D;st rict in good condition, especially the Slaughter house. Dr. Kellogg, of the Sixth Distr let, in spected 185 premises, '.*.7 rooms. He spe cially reports the abominable condition of P. Clarke's dairy. He had, at the time of inspection, :n a lot of 150 by sixty feet twenty-eight cows and two sheep, and five persons living in two rooms; at the tim e he was short nine cows, they beiDg in -the pound. The whole lot is simply muck, one and a half feet deep, and as his cows have trampled down every dram in the neighbor hood, the filthy water, saturated with the debris from the cattle, lies on the surface or drains oft into the next lot above, in the centre of which is a pond filled with this dirty drainage. The board resolved to t?ke legal steps to abate such an abominable nuisance. Dr Kellogg also reported the cow yard of Francois Michel as a nuisance. Dr. Newman specially reported on the unusual mortality of the Thii d Dictrict, that when the winds blow in a northwesterly di rection. sweeping across the lake and adja cent swamp, invariably congestive, mala rious and pernicious fevers abound with in creased violence. In the rear of this dis trict a protection levee has been bu ilt, to prevent overflow from the lake. Dra ining of the lands adjacent ha* been utterly neg lected. The alternate growth and decom position oi large qualities of vegetable matter generates malaria as its legitimate offspring. He advises that the levee be cut at proper intervals. Dr. Kinney, appointed to visit the quar anline station, made a very interesting re. port. The station is seventy miles below the city. It has an area of five acres by four, surrounded by a protection levee lour feet high, which sometimes is not sufficient. Dr. Howe proposes to raise the levee a loot and a half and dig draining ditches without expense to the board. The buildings are a boathouse with signal station: a building irted for quarters; a two story building used as a small pox hospital, in very bad condition; the physician's residence, need ing repairs and whitewashing; and the yellow fever hospital, which is falling to pieces for want of repair. Dr. Finney suggested that Dr. Howe be authorized to purchase 2000 feet of lumber, and that lime, cement and hair be sent to him, -o that he could go to work and fix things up without costing the board a cent for labor, and the board adopted the sug' gestion, together with a resolution looking to sajqdying the patients with necessary household utensils. Mr. Chester Was granted leave of absence for one month. Dr. Dr"w reported ten cases requiring ac tion by the board. « Dr. Newman also reported a number of premises as nuisances. The Loan! then adjourned.

We lav? received the following com' mnnieation from Colonel Char.es Case, re ceiver of the First National Bank, in which is clearly set forth the condition of its aff airs, and the probable results that may inure to its creditors. Colonel Case is to he con gratulated upon the success which has at tended his management of the affairs of this concern, and the stockholders are to be still more congratulated that tLeir interests were committed to the hanqs cl so able, sk.iiiul and faithful a manager: TKKASrKT 7*81 A1.T*KNT, J C.ffice of the Controiin 61 the Cur:raty, Wasii.u^tou. J u:v ZB, 1670.) Editor Republican: A mend sends me your paper of the twenty second instant, and cads attenti*n to an editorial in which you very flattering ly mention my efforts in behalf of the cred itors. of the First National Bank in the matter of the defense oi certain chancery suits in England. While gratified—perhaps a little proud over the result—and very thankful for your complimentary notice, there is one point requiring perhaps brief explanation, lest creditors may get their expectations too high. Notwithstanding the result of the litiga tion in England, the bank will not pay its liabilities in full by a considerai.de sum. The greater portion of the fund origiRally tied up in England was realized soon after the decision ot the Lord High Chancellor and his associates in my favor, and was. in part, at least, the money with whjch the Controller paid the second dividend—twen ty per centum—nearly two years since. Only £15.000 (which may net something over £70.000), was retained to abide the re sult ol the appeal recently dismissed. 1 now think the bank wiil pay from sev enty to seventy-five per centum. It may do "a little better; possibly not quite so weil. Tiiis may be counted not very un favorable when it is borne in mind that, two years after the suspension, in a gen eral report to the Controller. I could not figure an outcome of over fifty-four per centum, and that there was a time when hundreds of thousand* of dollars of the certified indebtedness could have been bought at twenty, fifteen and even as low as ten cents on the dollar. Thousands of dollars we re offered to me at these different figures, but I always declined, not because it was illegal, but because not strictly honorable for me to be come a purchaser. These creditors y.Il also rim ember that invariably they were assured the bank would ultimately pay over fifty per cent at tbe worst, and prob ably someth.eg more,-and they were ad vised not to sell at such low rate?, though always luiormed tha^ the time would oe long to a final dividend, and could not be hurried. Over £200,000 are ye! in abey ance by reason of cocfiicticg claims of the government and certain other parties. It may not be realized without congressional anq which I have vainly labored for for two year?: but I am a* onfident oi getting it and many otb^r liabilities yet outstand ing as I was from the first ol final success iu'ibe English courts. Very respectfully, etc.. CHARLES CASE, Receiver. Fourth Annual Commencement Exercises •f Pat* Christian College. Tuesday and Wednesday a? Pass Chris tian were entirely devoted to ?Le closing exercises of the fourth year of fhe col lege. The exhibition was exceedingly lengthy, and want of space prevents a longer summary than that contained in the communication below. If the handwriting is an average specimen of that acquired by the pupils, parents and guardians have rea eon to be satisfied in that respect as well as in other departments spoken cl in the letter. Pass Christian, July 30,1873. Editor Republican: I forward you with pleasure a short ac crunt of tne fourth aunuai commencement oi Pass Christian College. This insytntion is under the supervision of the Christian Brothers, an order of gentlemen who have devoted ail their time to the education ot our .Southern youth. The entertainment was opened by the eo.lege band, before a large and intelligent concourse of people. This bund is composed oi pupils and gen tlemen connected with the college, end we think it equal to any in New Orleans. Af ter we hud partaken of the musical treat. Mr. George S. Corkery entertained the as sembly with his salutatory, which deserves special mention. Tbe composition was ex cellent, and its delivery could not he sur passed. The uext production was an ora tion by Mr. II. Brunet. His subject was "The present and future of Louisiana.'' which reflected great credit on our Baton Rouge orator. After Mr. Brunot Lad taken hi? seat amid the clatter ot applause, tbe orchestra came forward and gave us more music. , Ti.e oration of Mr. Knapp was a fine pro duction, ami showed ttie gentleman knew what he was doing.
