OLD ror AETO01K.
One of our repo ,ters was leisurely saunter
tig down Cam ,p street, enjoying his after
dinner cigar, and keeping at the same time a
gharp look" ,ut for anything in the shape of an
Atem, whria his eye fell on the smiling coun
Aenanee, of Mr. Uthoff, the furniture dealer,
holdiAg forth his avocation in a building right
otprcete IBt. Patrick's Church. Thore was noth
r14g extraordinary in the fact of Mr. Uthoff'
almillnag, as he is a man of a genial and philan
titropk turn of mind, and his face is always
lnvitingly serene, but the smile that Illumined
1his honest German phlz was one that he sel
dom wore except on momentous occasions-
such ,as, for lns[tnce, when his better half
anakee his heart glad by the inevitable yearly
preeontatlon of
ANOTHER rIIi1,111:,
if ronjugal affection. Ho our reporter went
iupito him, shook hands with Mr. Utholf. and
inqullred Jokingly : "Another one ?"
"No," said he. "No, sir; the last one was
in Maroh, and you must wait a little more
b.fore congratulating me."
"'Ah, I beg your pardon; but why this jofry
Imuscular counractioa of the nerves of risi
tllity ?"
'"Well, I'll toll you, confidentially. l am,
{(drawing a proud breath) sir, worth now
, $30,000 more than yesterday! Yes, sir, I've
struCk the lottery."
It was so extraordllnar to find at man who
a(ld rreally and unmistakably struck the lot
tery for any amount; that our reporter
hattled Mr. Uthoff over to the sanctum of
the -store, and having seated the gentleman
and taken upon himself an easy position in a
huge arm-chair, opened an investigation
sttalghtway thumly:
iave struck the lottery?
"It is thus," answered the happy man. "My
wife, sorme time in February, bought a whole
ticket No. 12,98 in the $2 drawing in the
.Louisiana Sttate Lottery of March 12. at an
ofilee corner of St. Charlos and (Gravier. It
was bought out of her pin-money and with
out my knowletge. She was at that time in
the words of Billy Shakos, under 'the picas
ing punishment that woman bears.' This
dreumstance is the keystone to the narrative-
and came back home, carefully storing the
ticket In an old pocket-book which she hid in
the upper shelf of an old armoir In her bed
toom. I'll tell you what is best conic tip and
see my wife, she will relate the fact better
than I can."
So the reporter got up and followed Mr.
Uthoff up stairs, and on being introduced to
the lady of the house, was informed thait the
tale was true as told by her husband.
that she fell sick, and in due time presented
her liege lord with a lusty young buster.
Her illness lasted alxout a month, and ticket,
lottery and drawing were utterly forgottcn,
"Yesterday," she continued, '"the children,
Tammnaglng in the armolr. took out the old
pocketboxok and brought it to ime. On opein
in# it I saw the ticket I had bought six
months ago. As I had to go out shopping, I
took the ticket with me, hltending to stop at
the place where I htal bought it, never dream
ing it was worth anythilng much, but simply
to see whether I had drawn a dollar or two
by it.
the clerk showed me the list, and gracious
heavens I there. starring in great round black
.nnubers, was the identical 12,988 in front of
the capital prize of $30,000. I immediately
ran home, took my husband with me, and we
both repaired to the lottery otlfce, where the
ticket was recognized as good, only that I
wad requested to call again on Monday for
the payment. The clerk asked why the
ticket was not prenented( within three months
after the drawing, as the printed caution on
the ticket is that none is vatlid unless present
ed within the stated period. The circunm
stances of the loss of the ticket wore ex
plained to him, but he seemed dubious what
to say, and finally told us to come again
Monday. I hope it will be paid."
"There is no doubt about that," answered
the reporter; "the ticket must he paid; the
trlnted caution is worthless, for the ticket is
signed by the proper officer of the compa.ny,
the number has drawn the prize, and no
earthly excuse can be advanced by t1he com
pany against the payment of the prize."
After some minutes spent in general con
versation and in admiring the lusty Iathe of
six months who was the cause of his mother's
forgetting the lucky ticket, our reporter
shook hands all round, and lfl't the UJthoff
family discussing tine anticipated enjoyment
of their future greatness.

The Stale nominating convention of the
National party met yesterday at about 12:30
o'clock at Turners' Hall.
Robert J. Kor, president of the State Cen

and requested Frank H. Hatch, Esq., to take
the chair. Mr. Hatch declined, stating that
tie thought there were gentlemen present
more competent to fill the position.
Some time was consumned in making and
passing upon nominations for the temporary
presidency, and as it finally became evident
that the contention could not agree, the
Chair (Mr. Her) insisted upon its right to

iThe Montgomery ahootlng Club to the
New Orleans Cun Club.
The following dIspatch from the president
of the Montgomery Shooting Club was re
oeived yesterday by Col. W. T. Vaudry,
president of the New Orleans Gun Club:
MONTGOMERY,. Ai., August 24, 1$8R.
?Jo Col. W. T. Vaudry, Prosident New Orleans
sun Club:
At aspeolal meeting of the Montgomery Shoot
ing Coub our secretary. H. C. Davidson. was in
structed to forward you sti0o. to be used as you
ay deem proper for the New Orleans suferr s.
Jt must be remembered that the New Or
leans shooting club visited Montgomery dur
ing the spring and had a friendly bout with
the Montgomery boys. The D )OOnAT, at
the time, informed its friends'aid readers of
the fact that the shooters from New Orleans
were treated in MontgOmtery like princes, and
gave full particulars of the kind reception
given them.
It seems that this meeting has given rise to
a true and lasting friendship between the
parties, for ever since the beginning of the
epidemic the New Orleans OuniClub have con
satntly received telegrams from their friends
in Montgomery asking for news, making
offers of services and sympathizing with our
Iro-day they give material proof of their
gooxl feellngs, ancd the New Orleans (Gun Club
Is thankful. The money has been received
and turned over by Col. W. T. Vaudry to the
Howard Association, who will use it to the
hest advantage of the sick and destitute.
The honors won at the Newark regatta by
the New Orleans boatmen has created much
enthusiasm among their friends in this city,
arnd great preparations are being madeto give
the boys of the -lope Club, and Mumford, of
the Pirseverance, who won the single-scull
race, a rousing reception on their arrival
The time made by the Hope Club in the
double-scull race, 8:13%, is the best which has
ever been made by any amateur oarsmen In
this country, and this fact, together with the
personal popularity of the boys, leaves no
doubt that the proposed reception will be of
such a character that it will not only long be
remembered in boating circles, but also by all
the citizens who may take part in welcoming
home the crews who have reilected so much
honor and credit not only on our city but also
on themselves.

From a prospectus that we have seen we con
gratulate the New Orleans public upon the fu
ture advent of a now daily morning paper.
which will bhear the name mentioned above.
The Louisiana Courie r, as the prospectus
states, will bear aloft thetrue Democratic colors
and will be devoted to the interests of New Or
leans and the State of Louisiana. It will be
iurlished in English and French, as was the
IBee in the olden golden days, and promises to
be straightforward and fearless in the advo'acy
of its opinions. The editors will be E. C. Whar
ton, who has been connected with the press
since 1849, and Mr. Andre Roman, late assistant
editor of the New Orleans Bee. This paper
will not appear before the month of October,
but we welcome it beforehand. The more the
merrier; a good and honest "confrere" is a
precious acquisition, and if we may judge of
the promised journal by the names of the
editors. wet have no doubt that it will be a
sprightly, talented and vigorous paper.
A special season of fasting and prayer was
appointed by the clergy of the Episcopal
Church, as follows:
Wednesday. August 2R, I1 a. m., morning
prayer, litany and holy communion; Thurs
day. August 29, 11 a. nm,. morning prayer; Fri.
day. August :o, 11 a. m., morning prayer and
Every Wednesday and Friday during the con

These services will be held in all the Episco
pal churches in the city.
We have to be very watchful over our friends
now; every morning we must count them to
see who is missing. These are war times, and
a record has to be kept. Yesterday Cyrus T.

the unknown and all-powerful agency that

AN EXCElLENT MATTRESS.-Donahoe's patent
cord bound mattress is the most perfect mat
tress now made. The patentee, Mr. Donahoe,
has had a very long experience in the manufac
ture of mattresses, and is perfectly satisfied
that he has reached the acme of success. His
manufactory is situated at No. 44 Chartres
street, where samples can be seen. They are
made entirely of one piece by the patert pro
cess, and the moss with which they are filled is
selected and cured by Mr. Donahoe with a view
to having the best material possible. An inspec
tion of these mattresses will convince any one
in the world or the fact whereof we speak.
Floating baths offer flne facelities for bathing
in Iresh water.
His honor Mayor Pilebury yesterday again
received through the mail much gratuitotir
advice and proffers of services for a com -Ry
satlon. Many of the communications, watl1d
appear very laughable indeed, but Lasut they
are the result, beyond question, 'af mcelient
motives. For example, as a plec of new in
formation, the Mayor ascertains that the
burning of "pine tar" is a very good disin
fectant; the eating of garllo and onions is
recommended from a highly respectable
source as a preventive against the prevailing
malady. A specialist in epilepsy sends a vol
iuminods pamphlet praising his remedy, and
implies that it is certain to cure yellow fever.
A check for a handsome amount received by
the Mayor, was turned over to the Young
Men's Christian Association,
There was also received a box of liquid dis
infectant from Henry B. Walker, of No. 401
Cherry street.

theatrical boards of this city, it would appear

who put up at Mrs. Knight's boarding-house,
No. 123 Carondelet street. The people by
whom she was employed becoming panic
stricken, left her here pennilels. She fell sick
on or about the twentieth instant, when it be
came necessary to telegraph to her brother,
living ain Melvin. Ills., for pecuniary aid. To
which he replied:
M ,LVIN Ill., Aug. 30.--Mrs. Knight, 123
Carondelet street, New Orleans : What is the
funeral expense of my sister and did she owe
you anything? If so, state the amount.
Please have her grave marked, if possible, so
it can be found hereafter. Answer quick.
MrS. Knight answered that the expenses
would probably amount to $150.
This reply resulted in Mr. Jackson writing
the following note to the Mayor, referre(d to
in the DEMOGJcrAT yesterday morning:
MET,vrN, August 2r, 1878.
To the Mayor of New Orleans:
Dear Sir-I received a message last night
that my sister was dead. I sent a message
for the facts. I received an answer at 0
o'clock that she was not dead yet, but there
was no hope.
In the first message they asked for money.
I asked what the cost was, and their answer
said $150. 1 think the charge is large, and I
think there is somnethling wrong. Please look
into this and let me know if I had better send
money. JoIN JAOCKsN, Melvin, Ill.
Yesterday morning the Mayor telegraphed
to Mr. ,Jackson that there was nothing wrong
in the statements of Mrs. Knights', at whose
house thie decetsed received all the attention
that could have been given her.

ly announced that they had formed themselves
into a relief committee to render assistance to
the distressed during the prevalence of the epi
demic. They divided the city into districts, and
placed each one of these districts In charge of a

work, and plenty of work, for the association to

number of cases discovered and relieved by
members over twenty applications for relief
were yesterday received and acted upon.

At 10:16 o'olo k last night, in front of the Cos
mospolitan ",estaurant, No. 8 Royal street, Louis
Grady, a .'ell known character, shot and killed
a man ºjy the name of Paddy Jones. As soon
as the, leaden messenger was sent upon its
err adil of death the victim, without an exclama

Ing upon the banquette, expired.
Officer McManus. who was standing at the
corner of Royal and Canal streets, rushed to
the scene, and on his arrival Grady, who had
retreated into the restaurant, came out, still
holding the instrument of death in his hand.
and, on seeing the officer, said: "I surrender,
and here is the pistol."
The officer took him in charge, and, as sov

charging him with willful murder.
A large crowd had gathered about the corpse,
and when this reporter put in an appearance
they were satisfying
by scanning the ghastly wound in the left breast
of the deceased.
Tihe first exclamation that greeted the oar of
the rev.rter upon his arrival was: "It's a d--n
s: hame; Paddy was a bad boy, but he did not de
serve that." "No," exclaimed the party ad
dressed, " Grady was always trying to shoot
sorilmiody when he was in liluor."
After ,roeslng our way through the crowd
that had gathered we were in full view of the
corpse. It lay on the banquette on the back

eyes were open and seemed to be staring at the
crowd, but it

a dangerous moan.
Which Was Spoilled by Aids McDonogh
and Pecora.
On the twenty-third instant Thos. G. Rous
seau called on Chief of Detectivce Leonard
Malone., and reported that two men were going
about town selling bogus tickets for a charit
table picnic to take place on September i.
Capt. Malone, after getting a description of
the gents, placed Aids McDonogh and Pecora to
work un the case. Yesterday the two aids
lulled two notorious characters named Anthony
Martin, alias Tony Martin. and C. C. Jones.
When the prisoners were searched at the sta
tion a number of tickets were found on their
persons, which read as follows: "Fourth grand
picnic, to be given st Laeper's Park, by the
Crescent Dramatic Social Club. Committee of
arrangements-F. Semmes, H. B. BI,,yd, Ph.
Gannon. I. Fligan, J. H. Anderson, E. Walkar."
The detectives are deserving of much credit
for pulling these characters, as their mugs
would look much better behind prison
bars than roaming about the Crescent City beat
ing unsuspecting citizens.
She Attempts to Poison Her Husband
With Phosphorus.
Yesterday Antonio Castleguana, an Italian.
appeared before Acting Judge Samnbola, of the
Second Recorder's court, and swore out an
affidavit against his wife, charging her with
attempting to poison him. Antonio's story is
to the following effect:
That he ordered his wife, whose name is
Catharina do Napoll, a young woman about
seventeen years of age, to go to the coffee
stand in the beef market and bring him a cup
of coffee; that his wife obeyed his command
and brought him the coffee, but he, upon
taking a mouthful, discovered that it had been
drugged. He immediately charged her with
attempting to poison him. She made no reply
to this charge, but immediately ran off, and has
not been seen since.
The husband brought the remaining portion
of the coffee to the court, and as it smelt strong
ly of phosphorus, it was given to Dr. J. Llado
to be analyzed. A warrant was immediately
Issued for the arrest of the accused.

Gen. Ignatieff on the Berlin Treaty.
A leading Dublin paper has published por
tions of a letter front Gen. Ignatielf--the chief
framer of the San Stefatno treaty-to one of
his countrymoen in the Irish capital. Itbegins
by stating that the writer was satisfied with
what lie had idone for Russia before and after
the war of 1x77, and that his sovereign and
country would appreciate it after the Berlin
treaty. "I suppose," he wrote, "no one but a
fool can think I exQpc..ttt tr.etjry4tiU
drew up with Turkey last March to stand in
its integrity. I asked double, expecting half
to be ratified by the powers. But they have
gone infinitely beyond my hopes, and Bea
consfield and Andrassy have given us three
buarters." Ignatieff also states to his friend
that the control over Asiatic Turkey acquired
by England will result in her being held re
sponsible for the government of that country,
which must put her in constant collision with
Turkey. This will revive Turkey's friendship
for Russia. As to the possession of Kars, Ig
natieff says that alone would compensate for
the Russian eacrifices in the late war. Gen.
Todleben, who so ably fortified Sebastopol
during the Crimean war, will make Kars,
when he has time the strongest fortress in
the world, absolutely impregnable. He thinks
England will now have to add enormously to
her military budget, ant I will have to come
ultimately to a system of conscription or com
