One nf thft most interestlm: of recent events 1 Npiw Orleans has been the semi centennial celebration of the organization of the city fire department. Unlike other great cities, New Orleans has retained the volunteer system in her fire department and her citl zens take great interest in it. Annually on the 4th of March the streets are crowded lor miles along the line of march to witness the triumphal procession of the brave men who are always ready to risk life for oth ers. This year the day had a special signifi cation. It marked the re-establishment of the power of the democratic party after a quarter of a century of defeat, and it cele brated the fiftiotu anniversary of the es tabllshment of the New Orleans fire de partment. The day that saw Grover Cleve land seated In the presidential chair, found New Orleans filled with strangers, while many visiting companies were the guests of the department. In spite of a cold wind and dismal rain large crowds assembled early on the streets to view the procession. The rain was so persistent, however, that the parade was postponed until the next day when the spectators viewed one of the grandest parade overseen In New Orleans. Twenty-eight fire ccmpanles, besides sev eral juvenile organizations, numbering ful ly 2500, marched In line. A hundred marshals lent dignity to the parade, while forty carriages bore the guests of honor, with veterans grown gray In the service and long exempt from active duty. Thirty bands of music enlivened the air, their strains Intermingled with the chiming of bells on the trappuigs of the horses. The engines were drawn by spe cial teams of six or eight horses each, led by fancifully dressed jockeys, while within the ranks walked proudly the engine horses with glided hoofs and richly decorated coverings of satin. But It was upon the engines that the greatest labor and expense had been bestowed. Bouquets, festoons and pyramids of gold and sliver fringe, rlblions and natural flowers almost hid the body of the engines, shining us bright as metal could be made, while nearly all bore em blematic figures, many of which were very beautiful and artistic. One was King Cot ton, representing s sovereign In his royal robes seated upon a throne of state. At his feet was a bale of cotton, while below was a Negro picking cotton, the whole being formed of cotton. The liberty bell was prominent lu many of the decorations, a token of restored friendship ami amity between North and South. The day closed with minor par ades with j sllificatlons by the firemen, giv ing the visitor a vivid picture of one of the prominent features of Now Orleans lile. fciu-lul tlava ut till Imposition. Ono of the most enjoyable features of tl.n exposition has been the selection of special days as state days, when the citizens of a state may meet, and listening to speecn es and other entertainments, formally celo brate the ODcnlnirof the exibit. On the 11th of March the citizens of Ne braska assembled at the beautiful head quarters of the state and listened to several eloquent f-peeches Interspersed wiii ciioicw selections of music by the .Mexican lypi cal Orchestra, after which the favorwd as anml.lv were tresited to refreshments, con slsttng of a generous supply of cake and nrisented with several very pretty souve nirs of the occasion, leaving In all minds a lively appreciation of the generosity of th e Rtitn. Tennessee chose March 1 1th, the 117th anniversary of the birth ot her famous son, Andrew Jackson, for the formal opening of .r exhibit. A delegation ot the Ienn. legislature was present and hundreds of Tennessee's citizens were in attendance. The exercises weie of a somewhat peri patetic nature, lginning at the state de partment and proceeding from there to the woman's wr.rk department, thence Ij the Colored exhibit and from there M the edu cational department, addresses being made in each place, that of Hon. S. A. M c III wee (colored; being particularly eloquent. After this the Tenneseeans, with thous ands of other visitors, assembled in Mulc Hall, where the orator of the day, 11 a. F. L. Dodd, delivered an able oration on the life and character of Andrew Jackson. The main building of the exposition is ri.A Wo-nst ever erected, being 1378 feet Hong and 005 feet wide, enclosing thirty three acres of space, besides an auuiuon 3)50x150 feet designed for the exhibition of heavy machinery. Around it runs a gal lery 23 feet wide and In the center is Music Hall with a seating capacity of 11,000. This K..ii,iinr contains all the foreign exhibits and the greater part of the exhibits made by foreign parties. One side is devoted wholly to the display of machinery and one may beholu there a bewildering array of almost every type of mechanism that the genius of man has contrived. Ponderous engines revolve the shading that furnlHhes power to smaller machlhery. Complicated and lngonlous looms weave beautiful handkerchiefs and book-marks of silk with portraits, music, &c, on them, in nil the hues of the rainbow. Numerous turning lathes rapidly transform wood, Ivory and other materials into beautiful forms, and the band-saw man with his puzzles Is here In full force. A monster rofton compress, the largest machine in the exhiUtl in, c( n lenses un ordinary bale of cotton into half Its former bulk witli a density of 3i)J lbs. to the cubic foot. Numerous machines for extracting and utilizing the fiber of ramie hemp jute, silk grass &c, are shown, and an exhibit of the process through which cotton passes on its way from the field to the fabric is of interest to Northerners. Giirantic locomotives and magnificent palace cars Illustrate the progress of rail roading, and farming Implements in an their variety are fully represented. Large refrigerator rooms show how per ishable articles are preserved through the hottest weather, and ono may see the fin est ice manufactured in a way that Boreas never dreamed of. Among the foreign nations Mexico makes the largest display. Here may be seen all that wealth of material, lying so near us, waiting only for enterprise and capital to bring it Into the markets of the world. Mexico also makes a very creditable show ing of native manufactures. Numerous glass cases are filled with samples of tex tile manufactures from delicate silk hand; kerchiefs to the heaviest blankets and pimi-lm. Here may be seen buckskin for clothing, soft as the finest cloth and stamped in attractive patterns. Other ca ses contain every variety of horseman's equipments, prominent among which are the saddles richly stamped and ornamented wllh gold and silver, ranging in price from $50 to $1)00 each. Another row of cases shows the Mexicans to be masters of the preserving art, for here are almost every variety of fruit and vegetable transformed Into delicious sweatmeats. We know, for through the courtesy of the commissioners we were permitted to taste some of the most curious. The exibit of cigars and cigarettes is very complete, some of the most delicate of the latter being marked: "For ladles." There are cases filled with small models of Mexican birds, very nat ural and said to be true to life, while oth ers contain models illustrating Mexican life. The exibit includes fine furniture, a street car, fire-arms and models of artil lery besides numerous other manufactures. Mexico has reason to be proud of her ex hibit, and she is preparing others that promise to be even more attractive. Two special buildings are as yet closed to visitors, one of which is a gem in archi tecture, with windows of stained glass, and a beautiful dome of the same material. Nothing in the Mexico exibit is for sale, the government making the exhibit simply to call attention to her vast resources and to Invite and extend commercial relations with other nations.

The New Yovk as well as Chicago and other papers have abounded in advertise ments for weeks past that the rates of steerage passage by the best steam lines from the principal ports of Kurope to those of this country had been reduced to 7.00, and the Pennsylvania Central, the Kne, and other through lines of railroad adver tise that they will carry emigrants from New York, Boston or Philadelphia to Chi cago for $1. Surely at these rates there are few on th other side who cannot, through themselves or friends, raise enough to cross the ocean and get into the country at least as f ir as Chicago, Milwaukee or St. Louis. Yet it is noticeable that the arrivals at Castle Warden, in spite of these reduced rates, have greatly fallen off. The number landed there since the 1st of January is less than a third of the corresponding pe rlixl of 1S8 I, and hardly a fourth of the same period in 183. The facts are noteworthy its show ing the thorough know ledge which the middle and lower classes of Europe appear to have of the condition of lalsir and business In this country. A depression of business in this couutry is invariably followed by a falling off lu Immigration, and a revival by an in crease. In JS73 the numberof Immigrants received was tlD.HiiS, or more than in any previous year; in 174 it fell to 3l:l,3:!8, and in 1878 it was down to 138,7(i!, or lss than in any year since 1XG2, when we were in the midst of war. In 1S0, the revival of prosperity having been assured, the total again went up t r7,25., and since then the numl-er has been much greater.

C. cer tifies that for several months past he had been Buffering witli a severe cougu uitu distressed him day and night. He was very much debilitated, with constant pains in his chest. After trying various reme dies lie used the Bed Star Cough Cure, which gave him entire relief. As a remedv for that much-dreaded di sease, diphtheria, the following should be of great interest to both physician and parent : Ruth Lockwood, the ! -year old child of Thomas Lockwood, of the New "iork 7V..i)j linpnmA viol entlv 111 withdiphthe- ria oil Tuesday night. She was so weak that it was deemed dangerous to try uui eotomy, or cutting open the w ind-pipe. On Thursday Dr. Nichols, who was attending her, received a copy of the Paris Figaro, which contained a report maue iu me lemv of Medicine bv Dr. Del- thil, who said that the vapors of liquid tar and turpeutine would dissolve ine uuiiiious exudations which choke up the throat in croup and diphtheria, nr. ueiuiu a pn cess was described. He pours equal parts of turpentine and liquid tar into a tin pan I it f'lllt 4kftl i si.tvi lire to the mixture. A dense resinous smoke arises, which per- - . . . . r . . .! t M mentpt) th air m tno room. l no paueui, "immediately seems to experience relief ; the choking aud rattle stop; the patient lulls into a summer mm seems to inhale the smoke with pleasure. The fibrinous membrane soon becomes de tached, and the patient coughs 1 micro, bicides. These when caught in a glass may be seen to dissolve in the smoke. In the" course of three days afterward the pa tient entirely recovers." Dr. Nichols tried this treatment with little Ruth Lockwcxxl. She was lyintr gasping for breath when he visited hrr. Firmly pouring out two table sxxmfuls of liquld tar on an iron pan, he poured as much turpentine over it and set it on fire. The rich resinous smoke which rose to the ceiling was by no means tin pleasant. As it filled the room the child's breathing became natural, and as the smoke grew dense she fell asleep, to awake relieved and to recover perfect health. We suggest that this vapor should be used where danger is apprehended. It Is easier to prevent than to cure. Iliickllit'K Arnica Salve.

The danger to the public health from the indiscriminate use of the many lime and alum baking powders of commerce has been so fully exposed that everybody desires to avoid them. As "forewarned Is forearmed," housekeepers will thank us for apprising them of the special efforts at pres. ent being made to dispose of such powders in this vicinity. The proprietors of some of the worst of these powders are now going from house to house, trying by means of a trick, or so called test, with heat and water; to show that their article is as good as the Royal Baking Powder, making the comparison with this brand because everybody recog nizes it to bo absolutely pure and whole some, the object, of course, being to supply their own goods In place of the Royal, which housekeepers have for so many years relied upon to puff up the morning biscuit, and to make the light, palatable and wholesome roll, cake and pastry for which it is famous. The housekeeper will do well to bo on her guard against these baking powder tramps. Every intelligent person knows that any gocxls peddled from house to house in this manner, or that are given away in samples, or sought to be Intro, duced by secretly traducing the character of other gowls well known to be pure and reliable, have no merits of their own, and have failed to find purchasers through le gitimate means. We are informed, as a matter of fact, that ono of these tramps is trying to intro duce a jxnvder that has been found by the Government chemist to be 11.85 per cent, lime, while the other peddles a powder that is 20 per cent, alum one a powerful caus tic, the other a corrosive poison. No such tricks or jugglery will be apt to deceive any intelligent person. The house keeper who has used her Royal Baking Powder ever since she discarded cream o? tartar and sxla, knows more about its qual ities than all the tramps in the country can teach her. The crucial test to which she has put the Royal Baking Powder the test of actual and successful work In the preparation of pure and wholesome food, under which it has never failed Is entire ly satisfactory to her. She has always had "good luck" with It In making light, sweet and delicious bread, biscuit and cake, and lias placed it, to stay, at the head of her housekeeping favorites. She knows that it lias been officially approved by the Gov ernment chemists as the best, and we imag ine that the baking powder tramp who at tempts to supplant its place In her confi dence will find this a bad year for his business.
