within the district above referred to. Two of the dry goods houses, for elample, do a busi neme of nearly $20,000,000 a year each. The hotel in which I write this letter, the 1almer House, is by far the finest I have ever seen, and I have experimented with many hotels n In many cities, in many countries. Major Air Bose Lambert Price, Bart., F. It. G. 8., an Zaglish gentleman, who lately wrote a book _.avels in America, says that the Palmer house is "the finest, best conducted and most comfortable" he ever setw in America. It the gentleman had included the hotels of Europe and the rest of the world it the comparison, he would have been more strletly accurate. There is NO HJI(YIi IN EUlOPE comparable in any respect with the Palmer House--except in sIze. The Grand Hotel and the Hotel du Louvre In Paris, and some of the groat London hotels may be as large, but, in every other attribute, they are vastly Info rior. The French hotels are elegantly fur nished, but never swept, and their table d'hofes are simply execrable, especially the table d'dhote of the Grand Hotel in Paris, which is infamous. The great Swiss hotels, such as those of Geneva, Luserne and Inter lacken, are models of elegance and clean liness, but they are deficient as to attend ance, and their metaen are exiguous to the point of attention. I road the other day a magazine article calhrl "six IrmTSbn." the half dozen des'ritud by the writer to ing mostly SwIss. He says that such aceorn Wnodation as cost him about two dollars a (lay at on( of these places would have cost twenty dollars a day in an American hotel. Now this Is simply nonsense, and will bo so connldered by every well informed and un prejudiced traveler. I assert that such ac com modations as the Palmer House gives for ?three dollars a day cannot be got at any Eu ropean hotel at any price, and that the near est approach to It would cost at least five dol lars a day, and that the aceenonodation for which the Palmer House charges five dollars a dly-that is to say, sitting-room, bath room and bedroom, with full board, 1 NOT TO BE FOUND, even in approximation, In any hotel in Zuropo. In some there are gorgeous dining salooms, but no parlors or drawing-rooms, no elegant offoes, reading-rooms and billiard rooms-in fact, a conspicuous absence of those appurtenances which constitute the charm of first-class American hotels. On the other hand, there is not a single desirable feature of hotels and hotel-living that is not to be found at the Palmer. The rooms are rented with or without board, and for those who prefer the so-called " European plan," there is a restaurant which, I may say, is a perfect MODEL Or ELEGANCB and taste. In addition to these advantages, the building is absolutely and entirely fire proof, which Is a point to be considered by travelers, to whom the memory of the South ern Hotel catastrophe is a chronic vision of horror and fountain of alarm. TUB DB15IN34 OP OCICAGO In provision packing and export, in grain and in lumber, is expressed by figures of such Mnagnitude that they dwarf the statistics of almost all other places. They have been of ten published, and it is not necessary to re eapitulate them here. A few days ago a friend of mine-he is in the lumber business-was in Montreal, where lie had some dealings with a lumber merchant of that plcce., In the course of conversation the Canadian boasted of Mon treal as the greatest lumber niarket la the world. He admitted that Chicago did *omb thing in that way, but, as he-xpreeied it, "not a flea bite to Montreal," the triedo of which place he asserted to be 4ilx hundred millions feet a year. RU WAS A5TONZ5HED to learn that the lumber trade of Chicago just doubles those figures. The gentleman I have referred to is Mr. George Farnsworth, presi dent of the " Oconto Company "-a company consisting of himself and three partners. 'They own timber lands on Green Bay, two hundred and seventy-live miles fromOhicago. They have saw mills on the bank, and cut and ship annually 25,(00o,000 foot of lumber-all of it white pine. In this amount a little more than ono-fourth Is called "refuse;" and to utilize this they have established a box fac tory, which uses 7,000,o00 of so-called refuse lumber a year. I went over the factory a day or two ago and was very much interested in what I saw there. Passing by a groat heap of box pieces Mr. Farnsworth remarked: " All 0OIN0 TO NEW ORLEANH. It seems absurd, doesn't it, to send here for such things when there is a practically inex haustible supply of timber as well or better suited for the purpose within sight of Now Orleans." To which I was com pelled to agree. Mr. Farnsworth has a curious machine for nailing boxes togel her, and another for nall ing barrels, by simply rolling wide strips of wood, of the proper thickness, twice around an Iron cylinder, the heads being put in after wards. There is Al? OLtTELY NO ItRASON. exoept lack of enterprise and energy, why this industry should not flourish in Now Or leans as it does in Chicago. Mr. Farnsworth tells me that his lumber is shipped to the East and to Europe. The facilities possessed by New Orleans -a sea-port city--for exports of this kind, are vastly superior to those pos sessed by Chicago, whilst the material is at our doors. D. DA P.

'Oonsi derabe interest has been stirred up in the matter of canaling Bayou Plaquemine. We think the work will be done by dredging, and will be com menced as soon as the water goes down. There is nothing definite as yet, but we will inform our readers as soon as the project takes shape. In connection with the opening of the Bayou Plaquemine to low water navigation, we are informed that Lower Grand River is now in the best possible condition for the removal of the raft that has closed it to navigation. The river is high and quite a current runs through it. We are informed this week by a gentleman living on Lower Grand River, that a party had proposed to open the river for the sum of $2000, and he further said that the timber alone that would be taken out of the river would be worth at least $20,000. We do not see why some enterprising person does not undertake the work for the timber alone. We understand there are a great many black walnut logs also in this raft which floated in through the mouth of Bayou Plaquemine many ears ago, but are yet perfectly sound. year le South. There are thousands of acres of val uable land in Louisiana "wasting their sweetness upon the desert air," for the want of energetic, industrious occupants to clear, fence and put them into a state of cultivation. The rescue of the Gulf States from the thraldom of carpet-bag domination is now causing the people of the Eastern and Northern States. who desire to make a change of domicile, to turn their eyes Southward, and we see no good reason why Louisiana should not receive a large proportion of those who propose to settle in the South. We have certainlf better lands, our climate is milder, our crops more diversified and more remunera tive, and the advantages that we can offer are far more superior to those of any other State in the South. Those most deeply interested in colonizing this State with honest and industrious citizens should assist in proclaiming our resources and should adopt the necee ary measures to secure this result. Nature has done immensely for Loulsia na,but unfortunately her people are un apreciative, and ears not to avail them. selves of the situation and advantages that nature lavished upon them. They seem to be blind to their best interests and prefer to trust to the changes of time and circumstances. They forget that what they know of Louisiana is un known to those who are in search of homes or places to locate. They do not realize the fact that a little money judi clously expended will work wonders. The cry of poverty is no legitimate ex cuse, for the poorer a people the more urgent the need to adopt and encourage schemes that will better their condition. Let our people act in time, otherwise the opportunity will slip and may not again occur.-[Union Record. We have for some time favored the cause of temperance, but have never belonged to the prospective wing of the order, and therefore do not believe in the passage of any law to prohibit or restrict the sale of intoxicating liquors. We think that public opinion ought to regulate this matter, and that the grand aim of temperance people should be, to so educate this great power that any decent man would be ashamed to be seen intoxicated. This done the order will have performed its mission, and its votaries can proudly retire upon their honors. For a few years directly after the close of the war, a low vulgar idea of morality prevailed to such an extent that a man was scarcely considered so ciable if he did not occasionally become inebriated, and he who offered to run for a public office was almost compelled to treat every one he met. But, thanks to the temperance influence, no such idea now prevails. Stir up ye advocates of cold water; renew your energies and it will nOt be many years before an habitual drunk ard will not only be unable to get any public office, but will also cease to be invited to any decent entertainment proscribed, not by law, but by the more powerful influence of public sentiment. -Franklin Sun. We believe that the red and striped varieties of cane are usually preferred by sugar planters, because they mature earlier than other kinds; but occasion ally we find planters who are strong ad. vocates for the planting of the crystaline or white cane. The only objection which can be raised to the latter is that it does not mature early, and although very sweet may be too green to make good suar when the season arrives for start lastes who urge the superiority of. the crystaline cane claim that if inter s persed with corn in the proportion of one row to two of cane, that it will ma ture as early as any other vat~ety, and Syields as much sugar per acre. Those who have cultivated it for a long period (like Mr. Edmond LeBlano, of Pausese Pointe, who planted it for thirty con secutive years,) say that it annually im proves in saccharine qualities and early ripnig, and as proof of the thorough acimating of this Durely tropical va riety, instance the fact that when first introduced into this country the leaves were covered with barbs or "stickers," which they have slnce entirely lost. Some very observing planters have informed us that they have also greatly improved the crystaline cane by plant in it, in close proximity to varieties which mature earlier, and have thus, as it were engrafted upon it the qualities which It most needs to suit it to this climate. Another, and we consider the most powerful, claim for the planting of the orystaline cane is its wonderful vitality and exemption from decay when put down for seed. It almost or quite uni versally keeps soundly, in whatever form put down, and for that reason alone we should be glad to learn of its being more largely planted all over the State. Then, too, it is said to be less liable to worms or disease of any kind than other varieties, and we should judge so from its vigor.-[New Iberia augar Bowl. OFFENSIVE MaERCHANDISE BT MAIL. Now Western Merchants Reduce Their Transportation Bills. (N. Y. Herald.] Several packages of smoked fish in various stages of decomposition, which had gone'through the malls from some of the Atlantic seaboard cities to Ari zona via San Ftancisco,. were received at the Postofilce Department to-day, accompanied with an interrogatory from the Arizona mail contractor whether he is compelled to transport objectionable merchandise of this sQrt. The department has already taken stops to prevent such violations of the postal laws and will shortly Issue a circular notifying postmasters that offensive and damaging matter of this kind should be excluded from the mails and that they will be held responsible or passing such articles. The use of the postal facilities for the transportation of mailable merchandise to remote points in the Western States and Territories is constantly becoming more general, and it is said on good au thority that some of the merchants in Arizona receive fully three-fourths of their Eastern goods through the mails, at a cost of eight cents per pound for transportation by the government, as against thirty to forty-five cents per pound, which they would otherwise have to pay for express transportation from the terminus of the California Railroad to Tucson. Among the articles thus received in large quantities through the postoffloes are pistols, clothing of all descriptions, knives, forks, spoons, shoes, stockings, rubber and bone ware, family goods, and, as certain mail contractors declare, "almost everything except oil and mo lasses." Agents of some large Eastern houses are said to be meeting with great suc cess in obtaining orders from relatives in many remote places for direct trade based on the superior cheapness of mail transportation; but, of course, the gov ernment indirectly pays for much of it.
