Our gtreets Yesterday,
I'o the stay-at-homes our streets yesterday
1 looked to be almost overcrowded. The unforttu
d nate individual, or, In many oases, the fortuiate
individual who summers it in our city becomes
. so used toseeing the sidewalks dotted by strolling
pedestrians at long intervals that the recent ar
r rivals that have so swelled the crowd of passers
make it appear as if the city already is faul
Camp, Canal, Chartres, Royal and a dozem other
thoroughfares from 10 o'clock yesterday morning
no ii quite late in the afternoon were enlivened
by the presence of, it seemed to be, thousands of
Snew arrivals.
The perfect health of our city at present and
during the past summer has had something to do
with this, for we notice ma; y well known faoes
that were wont to remain away until November,
but who tired of the ennui of watering place life
have come back to relish this delightful O-tober
weather at home.
Another thing that has in a g-eat measure con
duced to this inflnt is that ever-body, now that
Louisiana IS libi rated from tRadical role, feels
that with the brignt pro-psots of our crops the
business of the year will be in full flood much
earlier than beret fore.
ditce 1860 we have hardly had hero at so early
a peried so many of our own nit;zli and those
from Misslssippi. Texas and Arkansas. With our
free government, with the m4tt a.i ulcions pre
m',onitions of a brick winter, it ie sere to sy the
Crescent City this year will be airu t, It, same
busy capital it was in other days. Ev,ry train
sads to the number of vi-itrs, so I in a fw min
utes' walk one can see fae as +17r recogn ze I by
heir full bloom of country health and vit or that
have come in to see town before the great runh
of November sets in.
