IT TIE AI SHOD.
Improvements Made at the New Lake End by the City Rail road Company. -The Hotel, Saloon, Avenue, Etc. Ib Is with pleasure that more attention to air suburban places of resort is noted. In the whole history of our city there has been but little expenditure, and less pains taken, in Puidldag up and beautifylog places for the peo gle's recreation until this year. Perhaps no city of the same extent has fewer resorts where the masme, Weary of the brick and mortar, can spend a few hours in pure air and quiet .etirement. Now, thanks to the energy of the Spanish Fort and Lake Railroad Com gany and the New Orleans City Railroad . Company, our citizens will soon have com pleted for them two attractive locations on th4te shore, within a few minutes run of Cby otalte, where all that industry and art Sa d has been done to render these places -0epplr ad enjoyable. On the long low level tf tle Jake shore, where hitherto the eaouotlonlst's eye was feasted on naught but lWv n5g rushes and monumental -iypres roots, there is now spring" etg ip pastures of flowers and artistic pieces of architecture that cannot but draw Ibithel those who can take an afternoon from the cares of business for relaxation. What 'as been done at Spanish Fort has already Deh lptblished, and to furnish our readers with wiat is to be done and is doing at the New IdSke lad by the City Railroad Company, Prea.lent Wlint was visited. His office tables were covered with plans, maps, catalogues of iron ornaments, resembling the engineer de partment of an army corps. After the plans had been selected, Mr. Wints explained them at length. On the eastern side of the New anal a double track will be extended from where the trains now stop, as far out as a9l ST. rOHN i rnlB 0noUs, and here, for the accommodation of visitors, there is now building a foot-bridge across the eanal. This a ill lead to the revetment levee, w "here the great improvements are being pushed forward now. At about 100 feet from .h canal, project log out into the lake from the revetment, is a high platform, 250 feet square, and in the northwest corner of this platform the grand hotel will be situated. -Thin elegant structure will be 102 by 145 feet, t"wO atoai.s in height, its front towards the -..gsal, Its style is adapted from the French. .lmned.itely over the entrance an octagon -Oupola rises to a point tighty feet from the water, and on either side a smaller gable lower.r Around the building, on both stories, Wuns an eight-foot gallery, from which an ex teellnt view of the lake shore can be had. -Beneath the central cupola on the lower 10oor and forming the entrance to the hotel, ill be a large vet ibule, ootagonal in form, t·w~Wty-three feet in diameter, on the right of *hich tea ladies' parlor, to be elegantly fur aished, and on the left one for gentlemen, h4af eighteen feet square.

Down the revetsdent levee three ROWS OF TREBE 5have been planted, and between the trees are *e plated beds of flowers. Along this *&aed 4inUse are to be put 300 iron settees, seat eaP lrom bxi to eight persons, and at regular :. Itervals are tobe built six pagodas, or rustic e ts, where family and picnic parties will seats and tables for their accommodation. z~h~ able architect from whose designs all ~tiese 1proveinents have been adopted, Mr. A. Downey has been for some time as kudluously at work and is now hurrying the - toward the completion of the buildings. A broad shell road will be soon completed on the revetment which, with the return drive Sea the tahore, will givea circuit of over a mile. Already the revetment begins to look not unlike the wall in Central Park. From one -end to the other extends a row of Iron posts, with ohars between them, adding much to the iaeal aperarance. Another featureof the improvements made - the.large and airy bar ard billiard room neab the hotel. This two-story building is 58 et by s4, with a main saloon on the lower .40 by 8.

INDEPENDENT MILITARY. For about a month there has been a move entlon floot on the part of the independent ki~tary oompanies of this city to unite into Smilitary organization for the purpose of m lngng about more harmony among the different ltd.rpendent commands, to reduce their expenses by selecting a common ar .llory with suitable meeting and drill rooms, ach company paying a pro rata to dtfray tiexpenses. Several meetings of the offi s wegre held at various times, and on last r ya ev nut·a the following commands tbenw-lves into one military corps, j. lfsthe name of "The New Orleans Inds SBatIalio)n," vii: O(adore de Or .ranriTreur., Gardes Lafyette, *tH be ltoma ded by a maore, "tos oVtei e ci the dlfeant corm mends oombosing the battalioan, and will wear the uniform of the staff oMoers of the 8tate militia; he will only iI an honorary oma each company preserving Ait own In tegrity and governing its own affairs as heretofore; on all general parades and other ocoasions, however, the major will take an active part and command the b ttalion. On Friday next the election f0t a major will take place, when all minor arrangements of the organization will be completed. CAVING LEVEES. A Break at Pointe-a-la-Raohe-Work on Bayou Lafourohe and at Bharpe's. As will be seen from the subjoined dispatch a crevasse of alarming magnitude has oc curred at Pointe-a-la-Hache, in Plaqueminee parish: POINTE-A-LA- HAHoE, April 17, 9 A. M. Col. Hardee, Chief State Enaineer: We have a crevasse here fifty feet long and fifteen feet deep. Watering box washed away. Please send sacks and lumber. Send mate rial to Dr. Herbert's landing. N. M. HERBsET, M. D. Steps were immediately taken to have the necessary material forwarded, and a promise of co-operation made on the part of the plant ere. The State Engineer's department will furnish a man to supervise the work. The news from Thibodaux yesterday went to show that the break near that place In Bayou Lafourche was larger than originally reported, being 40 feet wide with a depth of five feet. The depth, however, not being very great, it is not apprehended that there will be much difficulty in closing it. Work has commenced in earnest and all the necessary labor is at hand. In this connection the following dispatch was received: THIBODAUtX, April 16, 1880. L. A. Wilts, Governor: Crevasse is at Collins's place, one mile be. low Thibodaux, left bank of the bayou. It is forty feet wide and five feet deep. Organ izing forces and shipping matexial. I think we will close it. SIDNEY, It was learned at the Engineer's office yes terday that the lower dam at Sharpe's cre vasse was nearly completed and the upper dam was half way. There is yet, however, considerable work to be done, and final com fletlon may be retarded by a lack of suffiolent abor to-day. It is thought that a couple or days will see the end, but the wise ones are by no means emphatic in the opinion that the work will be stable or enduring. EXECUTIVE APPOINTMENTS.

A number of gentlemen interested In the matter of public education yesterday called upon Superintendent Fay to ascertain his views of the effect of the veto to the bill passed by the Legislature. Mr. Fay had not come to any conclusion respecting the matter, but cursorily remarked that the only thing seemingly left was to accept the old law and administer its provisions where ltdid not con flct with the constitution. He stated that he would address a communication to the At torney General asking for legal advice in the premises, and that he would be governed thereby. REAFFIRMED. A Question Affecting the License on Private Markets. About two months ago, in the suit of the city of New Orleans against B. Barthe for collection of a private market license, Judge Monroe, in the Third District Court, delivered a lengthy and exhaustive decision in favor of defendant, holding that the license was un constitutional. Yesterday, in a case involving the same is sues, entitled City of New Orleans vs. J. Du barry, Judge Monroe reaffirmed his former decision and dismissed the case. LECTURE BY REV. W. J. MURPHY.

New Orleans: Dear Sir-From the papers sent me I do not find my name among the subscribers to the fund for sanitary purposes. You must have forgotten that I wrote you never to for get to contribute my mite toward the good work your citizens are engaged in. I will now respond to your draft for fifty dollars, and, furthermore if your necessities require it, draw again. The work your association is engaged in excites much favorable com ment here, and you cannot, being so far away, realize the onfildence It Inspires that the good health of New Orleans can be preserved through their efforts. o My health Is much Itl roved, but will not be able to make you a , It this spring. With my best wishes for you all, I remain your affectionate uncle, MIc(AELt MAOEE. Ir. White, sanitary director, submitted the following: ..liM I MEMORANDA SUDMITTED TO HON. H. C. BROWN, 0. E., CITY SURVEYOR. NEw 0RLEANS, January 28, 1880. A street gutter, to be healthy, should be In a condition, one of two extremes, vlz: Abso lutely dry or drenched with moving water, as decomposition goes on most rapidly in the presence of air, moisture and warmth threecircumstances which in this climate the partially wet gutter furnishes. The best condition for the gutters running from the river toward the swamp Is a con tinued stream of water; and for gutters of streets parallel with the river, absolute dry ness. To secure this condition of these last named street gutters, a change of construction is necessary. A moment's consideration will show ttat the gutters on streets parallel with the river, for the purpose of carrying off rain-fall may be made more shallow than those of streets perpendicular to the river. The gutters of streets parallel to the river receive and transmit only the water falling upon half a blocIl, while the perpendicular gutters receive the water of halt of the blocks that border thereon, and all poured into them from the streets parallel to the river. The beds of the gutters at the centre of the block of streets parallel to the river should be elevated to at least four inches more than at present, and sufficient descent be given to secure a free movement of fluid to the intersec tion of the gutters at the corner; at this point the descent should be made sharply four inches In a distance of, say, ten inches. A gutter bed, laid in this manner, after be ing washed or cleaned would, In dry weather, lose all moisture in a short time, and be in an excellent condition of cleanliness and in one favorable to health. This construction would avoid what now exists at most street corners, where water is running from the river towards the swamps, a stagnant, unsightly, fetid, unhealthy strip of water extending up and down on both sides of the street to a distance varying from ten to sixty feet, The above Is an Indorsement of my report. H. C. BnowN, City Burveyor. I approve the above. A. WROTNOWSKI, C. E. The change of grade In street gutters par allel to the river, as suggested in the forego ing memoranda, has my approval as being essential to a good sanitary condition of the city. W. H. NEWTON, Civil Engineer. Wherever practical the gutter bottoms should be raised, as suggested In the memo randa. Good sanitary effects will follow and the excessive crown of paved streets reduced. W. H. BELL, Civil Engineer. We agree with Mr. Bell in his opinion, as expressed in the above indorsement. C. W. HOWELL, Major of Engineers, U. 8. A. H. C. COLLINS, Assistant Engineer. I agree with Mr. Bell in his opinion, as above above given. MosEs LANE, Civil Engineer. These memoranda are not offered for consid eration as novel, either In substance or form, for they were in language nearly identical with those submitted to the city government in 1871 by the Board of Health. The subject has, however, lost none of its sanitary Im portance. If it be deemed advisable by the Sanitary Association to adopt these sugges tions as, In their opinion, a measure of sani tary reform, I recommend that a copy of them, with the indorsements of these aistln guished civil engineers, be forwarded to the honorable city government, with the request that the principles of construction of street gutters therein recommended be favorably adopted, and by ordinance or resolution made hereafter obligatory upon all concerned In the direction or execution f such work.

The committee on vaults submitted a lengthy report, which was approved and recommitted, with instructions to prepare an ordinance in accordance with the suggestions made. The following, submitted by Mr. Glnder, was unanimously adopted: In view of the very grave consequences in volved in such fasifcation of Information as was contained in a late dispatch of the Asso :orieeI ' r1tt11 Besodg-gs tbrI the National Board of HI.ith should not lightly pagd over the alleied isPtake of the operator who was gullty 6o it. Resolved, That the secretary of this ase~ elation be requested to make inquiry of the National Board of Health if anything has been done in the matter. On motion of Mr. Fenner the chair was authorized to appoint delegates to the Sani tary Council of the Mississippi Valley, which meets at St. Louis on the twenty-first In stant. The chair announced Dr. Holliday as one of the delegates, and said he would make the other appointments at an early day. Under the head of miscellaneous business a couple of water fllterers and a model of a vault were submitted to the committee. After a lengthy discussion on the subject of sanitary inspection, which was closed by the adoption of a resolution instructing the chairman of the ward committees, Mr. Gin der, to furnish the secretary with a list of members of the association and others who will accept commissions as inspectors, the committee adjourned. THE PACIFIC RAILROAD CASE. Proceedings Stopped at the Instance of Counsel for Plaintiff. The motion of S. L. James for an Injunc tion to restrain the New Orleans Pacific Rall road from making any transfers which would interfere with alleged contract rights of the plaintiff in the suit, was fixed for argument yesterday morning before Judge Billlngs, sitting in the United Circuit Court, and on the regular call for motions from members of the bar, Mr. J. R. Beckwith, counsel for James, addressing the court, said: "In this cause I believe it my duty to say that the statement made by me in this court on Thursday were not in accordance with the real facts. I was laboring under a mlsappre henslon with regard to the action of the bolard of directors of the company alluded to on that day. I am very sorry, and, because I was laboring under a misapprehension, I retract the same and say I would not have made the statement had I been myself in complete poe session of the facts. In regard to the case it self, since if it is proceeded with it will re quire certain modifications of the bill. and sinoe, also, I believe that in the pendling ne gotiations the interests of my client will be regarded and provided for, I consent to va cating the order for a restraining order, and ask for a withdrawal of the motion for an in junction pe'nde nt lite." The proceedings were thereupon dismissed. A GRAND COTTON CARGO. The "Champion Press" has been making a magnificent showing since its erection,and in anothar column is published an account of the largest cotton cargo on record, the cotton composing the same having passed through the Champion and been reduced to its least possible bulk. Capt. E. A. Cotton, of the American ship Alexander, in a letter to Messrs. John B. Latitte &t Co., the managers of the Champion Press, gives a comparative statement of the catrgoes which his ship has carried out of this port since 1877, which shows that this immense cargo of 5751 bales overlaps her 1877 trip by 1702 bales and her 1879 trip by 1124 bales. This is really a grand success and the enterprising managers of this powerful press deserve much credit for the Improvements they have pushed ahead, and now but little, if any, greater perfection in compressing can be desired. FROG OPERA. The event of the season will be the produc tion, commencing April 28, at the Opera House, of the sparkling extravaganza, called "Frog Opera, with Pollywog Chorus." Those who have witnessed the rehearsals say that nothing so mirth-provoking in the amateur line has ever been given in this city. The fun is all of the most innocent character. The costumes are extremely rich and elegant, and the properties striking and original. Judging by the extraordinary interest which the "Frog Opera" has created among all classes, there will be a great rush for tickets on W edneeday morning,April 21, at Grunewald's, when the sale of reserved seats opens. ACADEMY OF MUSIC. To-night the last performance of An Ara bian Night will be given, and to-morrow ovening Miss Agnes Herndon and Company open and will remain during the week. The programme of the engagement Is as follows: Monday and Tuesday evenings and Wednes day matinee, Lady Challoner; Wednesday and Thursday evenings, David; or, a Sister's Devotion; Friday evening, benefit of Miss Herndon, and Saturday evening Bartley Campbell's Fate. A NEW COUNTERFEIT. The experts of the United States Sub-Treas ury in this city yesterday detected a well ex ecuted counterfeit of the standard silver dol lar. The piece was made of what appeared to be brass, and was heavily plated with slil ver. It was a fine copy of the original, but weighed about one quarter less. It is the first piece of the kind which has been dis covered by the governmeht officers. REMANDED FOR TRIAL. W. W. Sanders, brought from Baton Rouge to answer to the charge of fraudulentl/col lecting pension money due Peter West, was arraigned yesterday before United States Commissioner Lane, and waiving examina tion, was remanded to the Parish Prison in default of $1000 bond to appear before the United States Circuit Court.

Field sports commence at 3 o'clock and races at 3:30. ENJOYABLE PASTIMEs.-Of late years the rage for things of the olden time has pervaded all 3'aQses and communities. The ladies, partlcu larly. enjoying greater leisure, have been able to make their researches more thoroughly and have, of course, unearthed the very pleasantest occupations or snorts, of our ancestors. Poets have snrg of archery a d the long bows of old England were her defense in her greatest need.

Almost a Panio at Grunewald Hall. The soiree musicale given last evening by Prof. M. H. Rolling and his pupils, assisted by Mr. J. Meteye, was the charming enter tainmtnent that the Immense audience attend nlog it expected. It was exclusively a soiree pianislique-lf we may be pardoned for coin nlog the word-the only Instrument used being the ;piano; a harmonium ( being, however, 1 used in the overture of William Tell. In such oases we carefully avoid, as a gen eneral thing, being invidious, and for obvious reasons. We thererore submit the programme with our compliments to the ladles and gen tlemen who appeared in the concert for the ,xcellency of the music they dispensed. We would have liked to speak particularly of the composition of Mr. W. H. Rolling (the son of the professor), the first bars of which promised well for the young musician, but during its execution it was interrupted several times, and much confusion occurred,approach Ing a panic, caused by a preelpatate with drawal from Grunewald Hall of acouple who labored under the apprehension that the fire for which the alarm had sounded a few minutes before was threatening their doml cile. We hope to have better luck next time. PROORAMME. II Trovatnr (dun) ...............uerno Frank Viavant.Joseuh Llado Chanson Creole ....................... ketterrer Mile. C. Olor.

An Order from the Health Officer of Carrollton. OFFICE OF HEALTH OFFrCEB OF THE SIXTH and 8eventh Districts. 115 Magazine streets and Carrollton Court-.House Building. COrrollton. I would respectfully urge and request the residents and property owners of the Sixth and Seventh districts of the city of New Or leans to place their property and residences in the best possible sanitary condition, and in furtherance of the same their personal supervision is suggested.

The great success obtained in this city by the inauguration of future cotton sales, so clearly and ably expounded in the DEMOCRAT In the letter of Secretary H. G. Hester, of the Cotton Exchange, has created a necessity for the establishment of firms giving particular attention to this class of business. In another column of this paper it will be seen that the firm of M. N. Wisdom & Co., heretofore doing a commission business in the cotton trade, has been dissolved, and will start fresh in the same line, with the valuable addition of Col. Wm. A. Bell as a partner. These gentlemen announce their intention to devote special at tention to the execution of orders for the pur chase or sale of cotton for future delivery in this city or in New York, and in this line are, as we consider, pioneers of a business which is destined to be one of the most productive In New Orleans.
