In New Orleans, one of the many beautiful views which meet the visitors gaze is that ol the famous steamboat landing. Its situation lies directly at the head of the principal street of New Orleans, via? Canal str ct To that point and its immediate surroundings, all boats whether laden with passengers or freight steer their way. Boats from all parts of the United States, can be continually seen steaming to and fro cither to secure a landing or on their way to the place from whence they had come. During the day it is almost an impossi bility to find passage on the levee, the cause of this being the im mense trade carried on between the city and the neighboring par ishes. Wagons, floats, dray* and buggies all move in perfect con fusion, each searching after a place to pass in order to deliver their loads or, perhaps, ty transact rnnio business. At night the land* ing is illuminated with electric light, and a steamboat approach ing the wharf presents to the eye of the beholder a sight not easily forgotten. C The New OHmbn Exponlilon. Description of the Various Build ings. The Now Orleans Exposition, opened last Tuesday, Nov. 10th, it is situated In the upper portion of the Crescent City. It is ac cessible by both river and rail, and lies close to the bank of the MiMiseippi river. Os the numer ous street railroads in the city, lour lines have their terminousat the exposition, thus affording great accommodation to all visi* tors to the great enterprise. The principal buildings ore four m number, via., The Main and Gov ernment buildings together with the Horticultural and Art hulls, and uro enclosed by a fence ex tending on each of the four sides tor a distance of two miles. En tering the north east side of the Exposition, the visitor is struck with awe, for before him stands an immense building, it is the Main building. This noted build ing, the largest under one roof in the south, which covers an area of thirty-three acres ot ground. loa two story structure and in it |rc exhibited the products of the world, also the exhibits of the principal firms, companies, etc., of the world. Around tho four sidoa of this immense building, are gal lories upon which also, nu merous exhibits are placed.

C- B Georgia Negroew, h What an Atlanta Editor Says of tho Race Question in tho South—Negroes progress iug Satisfactorily. • New York Moil, Nov. 4. Mr. Henry W Grady, editor of the Atlanta Constitution, was called ! upon by a Mail and Express re r porter yesterday at tho New York i llotel. t “Do you intend to reply to Mr > Cable on the negro question i again ?" i “No. Mr Cable's first article in tho Century on the negro of tho i south created a sensation mainly - because it was written by a south t ern man. I was requested by I that magazine to make a reply, • tbo editor saying that he pro ) posed to limit the discussion to one comprehensive reply. In my I published answer I think I rep ■ resented the sentiment of the ) south. Tbo press wae unanimous I in its approval, But I was our- > prised to receive many letters • from tho north on the subject, dis- I playing an unusual amount ol 3 knowledge and shrov. duesbim the t negro question. It showed that • the northern people were more ■ familiar with tbo negro problem, . having studied it in all Ito pha- I sea, than would be supposed. All » tho letters indorsed the spirit of > my reply to Mr Cable. I held that ■ the races must develop m the -south by parallel but separate i courses, that tbo solution was i equal accommodation in school ■ and church, yet separate, that tho mingling of the races in the ' schools and theatres and olso -1 where created a very bad feeling, > and neither tho negroes nor tbo whites desired it. Ono instance i of this is that negroes separated . from the northern Methodist , church which was established in i the south. Mr Cable wrote hit i reply after seven months. I shall i not discuss tho matter further with him. Ho and I aro abso lutely a|mrt on tho negro quo*- , tion. We differ from beginning to end, ami no amount of discussion would bring us together or on- i lighten the public a» to the out i come. It will lake twenty years , to decide which is right, and no i amount of impatience on his part i or’mine can hasten that demon. i stration, In my first article I entered a protest against the ■ south being committed to tho . views of Mr Cable by the words i put in her mouth. I could not k make that protest more positive . by repeating it, and find no other , reason for continuing tho contro- I versy. The history of races to that they diflerentitate but never i amalgamate." k “Are tho negroes prosperous i and progressing " i “They aro, beyond a doubt. , Many of them aro largo landown i era. They have thoir churches, I lodges, and they oven Lave their society graded. Tho main test of I thoir society is respectability, i Thoir society squabbles originate 1 generally between tho mullattooo and blacks. In Augusta they had a disagreement on that issue, and in Big Bothel Church in Atlanta, tho high-toned members wanted thoir preacher removed because, as he claims, be was little and b'ack.' They had a church trial and the little preacher was oue tal nod. The nogro question is settling iteelt fester than any raoo question was ever settled!

A negro ernment Building to turned to the Art Hall. The building, a one-story stucture, is completely iron, and the master pieces of the many distinguished artists aro therein exhibited. Tbo Horticultural Hall is next mot with. Thio Hall to complete ly constructed of glass and meas ures about 860 feet long by 60 feet wide. In the centre stands a glass tower, beneath which gushes fourth a beautiful fountain with which the various plants are sprinkled. Besides these four buildings, there also is situated a grand base hall stand and an ex tensive stable for tho numerous race horses. Tho grounds aro also beautifully laid out, and from one building to another long walks have been constructed, which makes a visit to the New Orleans Exposition indeed very interest ing. C. Opening of the New Orleans Ex* position. Joyful indeed appeared Now Orleans on Tuesday, November l()th. It was the day y, upon which the doors of tho groat World's Fair was thrown open to the public. Early in tho morns ing the luminous sun unveiled his mantel ot brilancy, and during tho entire day his dazzling rays wore cast on all sides. The ob servance of the day was like that of other grand celebrations held in Now Orleans, to which thou sands flock from all parts of the world to witness. It was a gen oral holiday among all. All houses of business suspended com mercial transactions and tho school boy and girl were granted a holiday iq order to participate in tho opening of tho great enter prise. Tho ceremonies opened with a grand juirade through tho principal streets of the Crescent city, to which all societies, organ izations and the like wore ten dered a most cordial invitation. Many indeed participated and succeeded in making the parade one of the most interesting of its kind over witnessed in Now Or leans for some time past. It con sisted chiefly of the military both white and colored, the firemen and numerous other organisa tions and societies established in tho city. At 10:80, tho parade started, and after passing through the business portion ot the city, embarked for tho great Expos tion. The fleet consisted of seven large boats, and during the em barkation at both places ria:, at tho steamboat landing and at the Exposition, n<> sound was audible except that of tho booming of tho cannon and tho blowing of whis tles. Having arrived at thealeam boat landing and at tho Exposi tion, tlio procession moved toward the Grand Muaio Hall, situated in the centre of tho main building. This groat hall was decorated with flags of all na tions, while tho gallery balustrade was decked in horixontal •trijwa of red, white and blue. As has been previously said this spacious hall contains sitting capacity for thousands, and during tho oere> monies this wilderness of chair* was constantly occupied At tho entrance of this groat ball, bung an immenco banner bearing the following, “North Central and South American Expooition, Greeting." So great was the crowd, that oven tho largo stage was crowded with remarkable personages, in the rear of which stood the famous Exposition band. It consists of fifty pieces and is beaded by tho famous Prof. G D’Aqum. All being seated, tho band struck up an overture and tho orchestra and chorus in a grand buret of harmony, lifted thoir united voices in tho national air. “Hall Columbia.** It being fin ished, was greeted with wild ap. plause, and Io no other city In tho Union, perhaps, could this hymn have received a more hearty woioomo.
