On Monday evening Rev. I)r. Palmer will
deliver a lecture at the rooms of the Young
Men's Christian Association.
The subject 4f the address will be "The In
fluence of Christianity on the Formation of
Character," and it will be Intended particu
larly for young men. The association, how
ever, cordially invites all, old and young, to
attend, and there can be no doubt but that
the invitation will be accepted by such a large
number of persons that the lecture room,
large as it Is, will be crowded.
At the Lone Star .saloon, kept by Mrs.
Catherine Schreiber, at the corner of the
Sorapuru Market, there is on exhibition a
freak of nature which must prove of interest
to all clutivators of oranges in, at least, this
section of prolific Louisiana. It consists of a
bunch of sweet oranges eight inches long by
about six in diameter. On this stem there
are no fewer than thirty fully matured
Necessarily the fruit are of diminutive
size-about that of mandarins-but they are
perfect and as luscious as their superiors in
The cluster comes from the Graver placa,
near Harvey's canrl, on the right bank of the
river, and is a rare oerloetty.

Distress increases; aid urgently required.

Upon receipt of this telegram the Mayor
instructed his secretary to communicate Its
contents imlnmedlately to the Cotton Ex
chalngo and to several prominent gentlemen
of Irish birth or descent. The Mayor had be
eides a consultation with Father Allen, look
ing to the necessary steps to be taken toward
the relief of the "dlstressed country."
Information has been received at the De
partment of Commerce that several points of
the levee, in the Third District evllenced
weakness. Administrator Belian immediately
called the city surveyor into consultation,
and the necessary measures were taken by
thitse officials to provide for the strengthen
ing of the threatened poInts.
The subject having suggested to a DEMO
cRAT reporter a visit to the levee opposite
the Morapuru Market, the work (lone there
about two years ago by the Belt Railroad
C(opany, under the advlct and supeilntendl
ence of ex-Slrveyor d'Hemecourt, was found
to have achieved the expected results. The
contit cave occurring at this point ap
[email protected] have been stoppled by the crib work,
and the hole to te hIlling up rapidly with the
deposit of the river.
In answer to a request for more barge-land
ing facilities, asked for in the DEIMOctRAT a
day or two ago, Administrator Behan says
that he has provided at the fit of Julia
street accommodations for forty barges,
where heretofore a dozen could scarcely be
accommodated. As to the foot of Calliope
street, he declares that there is no available
mooring place there for barges, and, as far as
the iattboatmen themselves are concerned, he
Is convinced that they aire satisfied with the
provisions made to facilitate them in the
working of their boats.
President Wintz, of the City Railroad Com
pany, was among the visitors to the City
Hall yesterday, In connection with certain
improvements that the company proposes to
make at the Lake End of the Canal Street
Mr. Horter, the indefatigable member of
the Sanitary Association, during a visit at
the City Hall yesterday, said that In view of
the provisions of the new conatltu on ex
empting manufacturers from taxation, his
firm (Sorter & Fenner) had purchased a new
building on Decatur street wherein to do the
currying of skins for their horse collar fac
tory, wilch Is daily assuming most impor
tant proportions. Mr. Horter added (sup
porting his words with Illustrations), that this
provision of the 3onstitution was one of its
most important features, and one which in its
results to the commercIal prosperity of New
Orleans could notbe computed.
The J ttonaa proviion referred to is

of ten years from the adoption of this Oausti
