THE SHARPE CREVASSE. The Difficulty of Olosing It Still as Conspicuous as At the Beginning. The nows recelved yesterday from the cre vaees was not of the most encouraging charac ter. though at the same time it held out hopes of ultimate sucess. The plling and crib work in the way of tho lower daeo had yielded on Tuesday. and it became necessary to map out a new work outside the one invaded, reaching to the outer levee. There were in all about twenty piles knocked over by the wind and current. but they were not completely uprooted, but left rather in an oblique position. Two pile drivers were immediately brought into position, and the new protection work outside the crib first created was commenced. Wind and water being favorable. It was expected that the miles would have been all driven last nglht, and the pinking of sand baas and hay in a proportionate state of advancement. On the occurrence of this recond break it was concluded also, to hbein closely the upper dam simultaneously with the lower, and so. oordingly one pile-driver was put to work at either place. There was a force of about two hundred laborers on hand yesterday, and every prospect of bringing the work to an early flnish, bt there seemed to be consider able doubt of the ultimate seouriry of the work: Ool. Hardee was ill and conofled to his house yesterday, but he will probably be found at the crevasse to day. IURDUR COB'ST FOUL. A Father Arrested for Beating His Bon to Death. Sergeant H. W. Graham, commanding the Suburban Precinct, reported yesterday having arrested, at 6:s0 p. m., a colored man named Amos Hall, on information received. charged with the murder of his thirteen-rear old boy. Hall resides on Seventeenth street canal. In the morning he carrled his child to the swam with him and then beat him to eatb. Amos had frequently said that he would kill thaw child to-dAy (meaning W dnesdaeI). The body was vlbwed by Deputy Coroner Finn and conveyed to the bix'h Precinct, tation. awaiting the action of the city pbyicilan. The fil treatment to the child is attributed to the fact that on Tuesday he stole a piece of meat from his father's table BRBEK-K-EK-OAX. The fror he wonid a-ooui tlng ride. Sword and pistol by his ide: When he ame.e to Mi-s Mouse's tree. bald he: "Miss Mouse wid you marry me 7" The story of the ware of the mice and the frogaisa an ancient one. The great blind bard of the Greeks, old Homer. did not disdain to treat this subject and treat it in epic verse. His poem "The Way of the Frogs and Mice" is a true sister to the Odyssey and Iliad, and not behind them in life, fervor or poetry. There is a "folk lore" song current in the South which is completely at variance with the tale whioh the old Greek tells, a song which declares that the two races, the hoarse denizens of our swamps and bayous, whose brekekekoaxlan songs soothe the tired planter to rest in the evening, and the pests of the pantry, the enemy of cheese, no longer quarrel with each other, but that a peace and union has been patched up between them by the auspicious marriage of Prince Fro with the lovely daugh ter of the race of nibblers, The story is an old one, a very nursery tale In the South, held In even higher favor and esteem than the mys'ic words and rhymes of old Mother Goose. We must all remember it-the episode of the cow. the tale of the oat-and how we would like to hear it aalo It There is a rumor current in the city that we shall hear it easgain, told us dramatically and operatioally; that in some quiet nook in the neighboring swamps a large army of frogs is assembling, backed by detachments of friendly pollywo's and tadpoles, to invade the French Opera Hotse in this city (a prediction-this fro. invaSion-as old as the great astrologer Nostradamus, and which has been interpreted by wiseacres to mean that the world is to be overrun some day by the French Jeea. Cra _amds), and that Miss Mouse and her friends are at present among the brightest ornaments of New Orleans society and the most beautiful young ladies of the city. We are not in the confidence of the Frogs and therefore can say but little about them, We know only thlu-that they bat lately invaded numerous Northern cit is, snbjugatling and delighting the people of New !ort, Oleveland. Providence and Pitts burg with their antir and songs. As far as we can juige, after studing our almanan carefully this invaslons will occur on or about April 28. and we advise our peo.lti to be on their auard and prepared for something wild, weird, astonishing, yet beautiful. THE FRENCH OPERA. The news in regard to our next operatio season continues to be most favorable. We were shown yesterday by Mr. Davis. who is M. de Beauplan's agent to as' her subscriptions in this city, a list of the subscribers. It foots up the neat sum of S5.0oo0, and as $35,000 was the limit fixed to make the affair successful, only s$000 more are needed now. This we have no doubt will be filled up before the end of the week. The subscription list is of itself an at. traotion, as it comprises the best names in the city: so that we may expect to see the Opera on BoI rbon street, next eason. as bright as it ever has been in its palmiest days. MOBILE EXCURBIONISTS. Between six and seven hundred people ar rived in the city last evening from Mobile on the excursion train of the Lee Benevolent Asso ciation of that place. On the way over the excursionirts stopped at Beauvoir Station. and vl.ited the Hon. Jefferson Davis. who received them courteously and kindly and made them a short address. The remarks of Mr. Davis were responded to by Father iHyan, who is with the party. The excurlsonists will remain in this city until to-morrow evening. THE CITY CHARTER. Many and various were the rumors afloat yeeterday respecting the new city charter and the Governor's attitude in relation thereto. At noon there was a conference between several members of the city administration, and the report was current afterward that the Governor would veto the bill-had vetoed it. in fact. The Governor. however, has not el her slgned or vetoed the bill, but the public will not long be in suspense about it. PERSONAL. We had the pleasure of meeting yesterday. Mr. Max Sonneneohein. who represents the arge cigar a taulishment of A. E. Maesman, Bros. & Co.. Philadelphia. BREVITIES. Moody and Sankey, the great revivalslets are expected in this city in a few days. They will no doubt preach in one of the churches. LAt our citizens prepare to be converted. A challenre has passed from the Crescent City to the New Orleans Gun Club to shoot a team match at gtaRs ball-, for the champion ship of the city, at their grounds. corner of Denis and Penieton streets. We have on our table a cooy of the Petite Anse Amateur. a monthly paper, edited and printed by children not above 14 years of age. We see articles in it from Miss and Master Avery that are charmi o for purity of style and delicacy in expression. It Is a question coming from many places: What is the reason that such a terrible smell of coal oIl oil ervads the atmo~phere wherever the gas from our own and only gaslihrt company is burned ? Is "thrifL" the Dpas-word~ with our friends. or have new chemical comnlicatlons arisen in the process of making coke? Mr. D.

It was ascertained that the woman had been so confined in the house- of Goldenberg. but recently managed to leave her _lace of se elusion and was conveyed to the Bome of the Aged and Infirm. It appeared by the evidence that Goldenberg was only extending a kind ness to the wuman, who was somewhat de ranged and had been with him before the war. Goldenberg stated that he feared, if she were allowed to go on the street and her condition became known, she might be put In the asylum and receive indifferent treatment. For thli reason, he said. he kept her himself and treated her as well as possible. The evidence not being sufficient to substan tiale the charge of kidnapping. Goldenberg was dismised. 10 DAILY LETTER LIST. e Ladies' List.

Suicide of Mr. Communy. At 9::30 o'clock Wednesday morning Mr. Hen ry Cormmuny. aged thilt, years, committed snl clde by shooting himself through the heart with a Colt's revolver. Mr. Con muny's rash act is attributed to the fact that for some time past he has been in ill-health, and this preyed upon his mind to such an extent as to produce mental aberration. and yesterday morning, while labor ing under one of these fits, he killed himself. A Runaway. Tuesdav evening, while the family of Mr. Obhas A. Whitney were out ridinga the horses took fright on the bridge crossing the Old Basin and ran.way. One of the ladies were thrown into the basin but was instantly rescued, and fottunately received no injuries. Another lady In the carriage was also thrown out and had her arm sprained. Died from a Fall. On Monday a man named W. . ScBoott tell at the corner of Masazine and Lafayette streets while drunk, and was so seriously injured about the head that he died from the effects yesterday morning at the Charity Hospital. The coroner held an Inquest and rdturned a verdict in accordance wit' the facts. Slightly Cut. At 11 o'clock Tuesday night, at a gambling house on ituyal street, a man named J. MoDon aldawa" out three times and sligbtly wounded by one J. Sarasaulta. The accused was arrested. and released on bonds by Judge Miltenberger. The wounded man was sent to the hospital. A Serious Accident. E'iward White was yesterday so seriously In. jured by being struck on the head by the talling of an iron bar that he now lies in a dying con dition at the Charity Hospital. CURRENT HUMOR. The language of flowers-Anthologic for "My dear Jim." Jas. mine. Why is a Zulu belle like a prophet of old? Because she has not much on 'er in her own country. Ada, aged 4, who was doing something, and was told to desist by her mother. Mother: "Ada, am I to speak to you again?" Ada: "Yes, ma, you may If you like." A Boston paper thinks there ought to be a law in this country to compel every girl who is engaged to wear a red bow at her throat. That wouldn't do a bit of good. Every girl would wear one. Leap-Year Party-Mr. Gush: "0 what ecstatic music; it would make a stickdance." Miss Cool (with great demureness): "Won't you try a turn, Mr. Gush?" And vet Gush didn't see it, and said: "Chawned, I'm sure." "You are an ojus, hidjus, Idjit, my dear," said a playful mamma to her daughter, at dancing school, the other day. "Oh, my dear Mrs. T," sighed one of her neighbors, "what wouldn't I give to have your knowledge of Latin." On hearing there was to be a sale of old prints belonging to the British museum, Mrs. Smith hazarded the sug.gestion that, with calloo at its present low figure, they wouldn't pay for selling. "Why, an 'old print' doesn't even make good dusters," added this excel lent housewife. "How much are these goods a yard?" said a gentleman in a dry goods store the other day, as he picked up and examined a piece of ruffled silk. "Good gracious! ' cried the hor rifled clerk, "that isn't for sale! That's the end of a lady's train! She's lust gone up to the third story in the elevator." A worthy couple in a Massachusetts town I ad lost their only daughter and were deeply depressed. As they sat one evening In the drawing-room, heaving sighs at intervals, the wife remarked: "Well, George, there is one consolation. Situated as we are, we could never have gotten Jane into Boston society." "Poor Herbert, how I wish you did not have to slave so from morning till night!" murmured his wife, as, with a fond caress, she seated herself on her husband's knee and gently stroked the auburn looks from his lofty brow. And the grave, stern man of business understood her at once, and said: "Well, Susie, what is it-a bonnet, or what? Don't be too hard on me for money is scarcer than ever." A New Hampshire woman has a husband who is addlcted to joining secret societies. One of her exasperated outhurste is thus re orted by the Manchester Mirror: "Jine! He'd jine anything. There can't nothing come along that's dark, and sly, and hidden, but he'll jine it. If anybody should get up a society to burn his house down, he'd line it just as soon as he could get in, and if he had to pay to get in he'd jine all the suddener." The choice some people make of matrimo nial partners is hard to understand. A young Maine farmer married a hlghly-cultured Bos ton girl, who didn't know the first thing about housekeeping, but had devoted her youth to the study of geology and mineralogy, and when he took her home, instead of attend ing to household duties, she went roaming about the farm and soon discovered on her husband's land a gold mine worth $40,000. You can't always tell how a match will turn out. A lady of rank, proudly conscious of her dignity, one day discgntin~ on the superior ity of the nobility, remarked that the three classes of the community-nobility, gentry and commonalty-might very well be com pared" to the three materials, china, delf and I crockery. A few minutes elapsed, when one of the company expressed a desire to see the lady's little girl, who was in the nursery. John, the footman, was dispatched with or ders to the nursery-maid, to whom he called out from the bottom of the stairs, in an audl hle voice: "Hello, Crockery; bring little China." MOUNT VERNON. Where Washington Obtained the Name of his Home. [New York Times.] While every American has heard of Mount Vernon, probably not one in a hundred knows from whence It derived its name. The unfor tunate Duke of Monmouth had a private sec retary named Vernon, a prudent, sensible man of business, who, after the Duke's death, found favor in influential quarters, and under Wil liam II[ became Secretary of State. He left a son, Edward, born 1684, who greatlyagainst his father's wishes, entered the navy, and, serving with early distinction, rose to the rank of Admiral. In 1722 he was returned to the House of Commons, and having, in 1739, de clared there the Porto Bello might be re duced with six sail of the line, and that he would stake his life and reputation on the success of the expedition, he was sent off with a sqadron to do it, succeeded, and gave his men $10,000, which had just arr:ved to pay the Spanian troops. On returning hom" he received the thanks of both houses and the freedom of the city of London. From that day, however, his star declined. An expedition to Cartha gena, made two years later, signally failed. Smollett, at that time a naval surgeon, ac companied the fliet, and has told the story of It in "Roderilo Random," where he com pares Vernon and Gen. Wentworth, who commanded the auxlliary land force, to Cae ar n.d Pompey. ,.e .one," he say, "wu, ld .... -,. , force at Oarthagena that Lawrence Washing ton George's elder brother by fourteen years had served, and apparently he esteemed Vernon, as he gave his name to his home on the Potomac, and procured a midshipman's appointment for George, but his mother's interpoeliton ultimately prevented the boy's availing himself of it, albeit she had at first consented. Vernon's popularity was so great that his unlucky expedition does not seem to have affected it, and he was ac tually elected to Parliament for three places at once on his return. Probably his known hostility to the govewrnment had much to do with this. In 1745 he was dettiled to watch the North sea, in view of a movement of the Pretender's adherents. The next year a se rious squabble arose between him and the government, resulting in his producing two pamphlets, which so exasperated the author ities that by the King's express command he was struck off the list of Adtnirals. He died in 1757, at his seat in Suffolk, and notwith standing his disgrace, a handsome monu ment to him was erected in Westminster Ab bey. It was Vernon who brought into use the cuhtom of mixing water with the ration of rum, which got the name of grog from his habit of wearing a grogram waistcoat, and hence his nickname of "Old Grog." Alto fether, the man who invented grog, is buried in Westminster Abbey, commemorated by Smollett, and gave a name to Washington's home, must be regarded as no ordinary per son. EUGENIE'S CROWN. The Ex-Empress Presents Her Royal Tiara to the Churoh of Notre Dame Des Viotoires-The End of an Old Scandal. IN. 1. Herald.) LONDON, April 8.-The ex-Empreses Euge nle before starting for Zululand presented her imperial crown to the Church of Notre Dame des Victoires, Paris. It is of great value on account of its artistic composition and the numberof preclousestones it contains. After the Empress' flight from France the new government ordered that all the valu ables of the imperial family, including the crown, the regalia and the sword of state, should be deposited with the Bank of France. But a rumor soon got abroad that the Em gress' crown, together with the cele brated regent diamond, had been secretly forwarded to London to the care of the Rothschilds. A little later the gossips af firmed that it had been sold by Dr. Evans, the American dentist, and that the proceeds had been applied to the support of the Empress at Chlselhurst. The true account of her flight and of the valuables she took with her, has recently been published. It appears that when Prince Metternich appeared at the Tuileries and bade the Empress hasten her departure she went hurriedly Into her bed room, put on a brown waterproof cloak, a round traveling hat, took a green parasol, began to collect in great haste all the minia tures of the Emperor, of her son, of her sis ter, the Ducheese d'Albe, and of her niece, and put them into a lapis lazuli box, which, however, in the haste of her flight she was destlned to leave behind. "Make haste, madame, I hear cries; they are mounting the stairs; they are com ing l" cried M. Nlgra. Prince Metter nich went holdly into the bedroom and took the Empress by the arm. Every one had, more or less, lost their presence of mind. The Empress left without tAiong any money with her, although there *wee about 40,000 francs in the drawers, $nd Marshal Vallant, who had a thought of this, and bringing some rouleaux of gold with him, had, with the greatest difficulty, succeeded in entering the palace by the gate in the Rue de ilvoli, arrived too late to give them to the Empress. She was driven to the hotel of Dr. Evans, who supplied her with money. She was then put in the hands of Sir John Bur goyne who conveyed her across the channel, and when she set foot on British shores she was almost penniless. In the subsequent ar rangement of her affairs, after the Commune, many of her valuables, and among them the crown, were restored to her. The Cheapes. Place In the World to LIVe. [San Francisco liulletin.] "Coming down to the question of cheapness and comfort," said Mr. Bridge, "I believe that the Island of St. Michael, the pearl of the Azores group, is about the best place in the world. The climate is soft and agreeable, the scenery lovely, and the people noted for their simplicity and kindness. Labor is very cheap, and consequently the roads leading from the town of St. Michael are of the finest charac ter. The streets are kept marvelously clean. The island is about thirty miles square and picturesque. One can buy five eggs for two cents, a chicken for twelve and a half cents, beef for three cents a pound, and hire a good house for $7 a month. You can live well for $600 a year; handsomely on $700, and live in superb style, keeping carriage and horses, for $1000. The gardens are beautiful features of the island. In one garden there are 4000 plants of different varieties. The land is Owned by a few rich people and rents very high. A quarter of an acre brings $15 a year. The peasants or laboring people go barefooted and live very economically. Probably $100 a year supports a small family. '1 he fashions in dress have not changed within a hundred years, and this applies to the best society. The women wear copakes, a garment reach ing from the neck to the feet, and bearing some resemblence to the 'ulster' which the ladies of San Francisco wear. The head covering is called a 'capilla,' and is like one of the ola-rashioned New England bonnets, but it is attached some way to the copake. A girl, seeing a stranger approaching, cunceals her face with the capllla. The native people recognize their friends by their feet." Gen. Tecummeh Uherman on Gen. Boyn ten. [From an Interview in the Post-Dlsvatch.]l "What do you think of Secretary Shurz ?" "Oh, I think Bchurz-but then it don't make any difference to you what I think. Schurz is a very able man in some ways." "At least you will tell me what you think of Gen. H. B. Boynton ?" At this point the General dropped the lan guid air with which he had been conducting his end of the conversation, and said rather testily, "Yes, I will tell you or anybody else what I think of that person. He is a liar and a slanderer. He is a commodity that can be bought and sold like anything else In the market. I never knew of a more thoroughly venal man than he is. You know he sent me a letter asking whether I had called him a slan derer, and I sent him an answer saying that I had, and I repeated the assertion. That was all the correspondence that I had with him. Then he threatened to sue me for libel, and finally, as I expected, he backed down and did nothing of the sort." "What sort of a man is he?" "Well, now that is the queerest part of it. I have never seen Boynton in my life-have never met him at all. But then I have three witnesses to every fact that I stated, and I dare him to come Into court to sue me-damn him, I dare him to do it." "Nobody else has been worrying you lately, General?" "Oh, no," he smiled. "No. I can forgive my enemies, I suppose, as I am more than even with most of them." Catarrh of the Bladder Cured. HENBRIIETA, Monroe Co.. N. Y.. Jan. 5, 1880. H. H.
