MARDI GRAB IN NEW ORLEANS. t The Carnival celebration of this year was conducted on a more magnificent scale tlhan any previous one in the his e tory of Louisiana, and passed off withb the usual niad gayety which has made i. New Orleans famious above her sister t cities. Every State in the Union con tributed its quota to swell the multitude b which thnronged the streets of the qlnaint e old Crescent City. The f:estivitics began earlier than usual ill holnor of ()oi ' Northlier visitors, the Charlestown Cadets and Boston Lancers, who arrived Mlonday, Febualry 21, to participate in the colebr:atiou of the an niversary of Washingtonl's birthday. They were mlost loyally treated by their host1., the Contiueuntal Guards, ntd were accordled the post of honor in the parade of the 22nd. '1Thursday, February 2.1, the Carnival t proper beg'u hy the display of the SKnIiights of Monlills, who represented ,, " Scenes from Popular Topics," and too I Simuch canl not be said of the superlative l miaglliicence of the costumes and the faithful delineation of the subject rep- 1 re n 1 ... .. -I Sunday, February 28, the Seventy-first regiment of New York city and the Spaulding Guards of Buffalo arrived, and after a short parade and a lunch at the Washington Artillery arsenal, retired to their quarters on the steamer Ii. E. Lee and at the St. James Hotel, respectively, to recover from the fatigues of their journey, and be ready on the morrow to I do duty as escort toRex, the only mon arch whose entire reign is marked with joyousness and mirth. On Monday the boom of cannon an nounced his majoet 's arrival, and short ly thereafter the procession moved through the principal streets. Detach ments from every command in the city were detailed to escort the King, and these, with his own retinue, selected from all portions of the world, made a very imposing appearance. A grand re ception was then hehld, during which al magnificent banner was presented the Seventy-first boys, who responded with their peculiar combination, sky-rocket cheer, after this manner: " hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah; Seventy-one, seventy one, seventy-one; S-sift, Boon, Ah!" Tuesday-Mardi Gras-was all that rosy skies and Summer's lperfumed breathi could make it, and many were the expressions of pleasant surprise which the delightful weather drew from our astonished visitors, who had just left the frozen North still clasped in Winter's icy arms. The day parade was probably the most gorgeous ever yet attempted. The leading subjects of the Arabian Nights tales were represented, and as each float appeared, the exclamations of the dellighted spectators showed how fully they appreciated the beautiful dis play. "'The 1 idependent Order of Moons'" next wheeled into line with " Pictures fromn (ur Ti wn," closely followed by the "l'Ihtuny Phlrty Phellows" who bur lesqued " Ye Women Fair." At night the crowd had rather in creased than diminished. An expectant multitude eagerly awaited the appear ante of the "Mystic Krewe," whose theme of illustration was the " Myths of Norselandl," and as the gorgeous pageant made. its way through the glare of fire works and many colored lights, slowly fadling into the gloom anti darkness of the night, so the short-lived peiotd of mtirth and laughter slipped from our re luctant grasp into the autlerings and solemnity of Lent. One of the most creditable features of theI carniival was the good order which prevailed throughout the entire period of the celeblration. Probably no other city in the world could have entertained such an i mmense floating population during a similar season of general revelry and unrestraiut, and present an equally scant record of disturbances, casualties ant cri mes.

A THOUGHTLESS CRITICISM. 'rehilent eleet G(ar.ieid was entertainetl ircertly by i lsdelegaltin of i.Negroes from thie Southern Stntes.
