On the 18th inst., I loft Franklin on the U. S. Mail Steamer Warrn Belle band for the Crescent City. At Bamhear I ,stisad con siderable changes since I passed through that place about a week previously. Mr. Nelson had torn down nearly the whole front of the depot, and with a steam pile driver, was thrusting huge sticks of timber through open ings in the wharf as a foundation for the new railroad track which is to be planted on the present wh fifty feet from the water's edge. This work will be promptly comple ted, sad the depot will be at once reoonstruc ted. Capt. Atainon will take charge of one of the new dredge boats which are to deepen the channel of the Atchafalaya. They ex pect the largest of Morgan's outside steamers to pass through this channel on their trips between Brashear City and the ports of Texas. Before six months Brashear City will be a lively place. These improvements will all be promptly completed, and the most of the Texas freights will then pass over this route. Mr. Castillo has taken charge of the Brash ear Hotel, and is ncw prepared to entertain guests who may favor him with their patron age. I hear his hotel well spoken of. The Morgan Steamship Josephine and Mata gords are now making tri-weekly trips be tween Brashear and Galveston. Soon the City ofNorfolk will be on the line again, and the three steamers will ran regularly in this trade. More steamships will be put in this trade as soon as the channel is completed. Near the railroad at various points I no ticed new plowing, as though the planters are resolved to pick flint and try again. The short crop this year does not seem to dis courage then,. The crops of cane are short in every direc tion, on the coast, the Lefourche, in Terr boane on Red River, and in Attakapas. A negro child was run over by the cars near Boutte Station, about a week ago, cut ting of both legs and one hand. Five min ites after the aaeldent scores of negroes were present wringing their hands, and uttering shrieks and groans of ho~ror at the sight of the mangled child. The child died the fol lowier aight. -t lowing night. TH CIT Y. M C. Early in the week Canal street stores were r. thronged with people buying toys and other articles for Christmas and the Holidays. Bundles and packages for Santa Clans, by scores, and thousands, were sent from these I on stores to the dwellings of thousands of pur ans chasers. The toy trade seemed larger and Lan more animated tian even the cotton and sad sager trade on the levee. They will have a BtO, merry Christmas in the city regardless of the nit. pries of gold, or cotton, or smgar. a SMALL POX. There is much discussion, and some alarm in the city in regard to the small pox. Some ay there is a great deal of this disease in the ad- ity, tht the disease is spreading. The Pisaymne of a rseent date stated that a small p.t patient,amable to reach the hospital by 'th meas provided by the Board of Health, took as a street ear, at the peril of the paseengers. ar the same paper stated that there is but little eg ergot nade by the Board of Health to pre * to te the itiss against the pread of this ier, ls assse disease. These were twenty s . dath o ll pox reported last week, about see a sixthof the mortality of the city. Fifteen ae of the twentyr were negroes. Bad the pro portions been in proportion to the compari tire numbers of the white and black popula tion, about sit deaths would have occnre a1e negroees, and enn o f- wo- - - --,- ~ --w-l-s ·y, but saw none. I doubt if there is much danger of Staking this disease where people cofine th tiemselves to the principal business streets ad hotels. The country people semed more laas sbet the disease than the city pe 'pi and yet etme ltter are in more danger of I tkl t th thIthe former. I have heard of S iiames in which a person from the coun Il try has contated this disease, yet cases of a the kind may have happened. 'l TM DOLLi=a soms. or.

Warmoth for printing the State laws, both contracts worth from fifteen to twenty thousand dollars, and his paper never had five hundred paying subscribers. It costs the State and general Government more than thirty dollars to each subscriber of the Advocate, and each dead-head, black and white, to furnish these patrons of Parson Newman's paper with the laws. And then the Paison preached every Sunday, and got pay for that. And he accepted Sabbath con tributions from the negroes to the amount of thousands of dollars. He even sent to the negro churches in the country to raise for him $100, in each church, after he had the yellow fever, pleading poverty as an excuse for the request. He came to New Orleans to make loyalty and religion a paying businees, and he succeeded. A more oily tongued hyp ocrite, a more artful deceiver, a more heart less persecuter of honest men, a more crouch ing tool and admirer of such creatures as Gov. Warmoth and his fraternity, never dis graced or polluted a Southern city. But to the credit of New Orleans he was smoked out, and his infamous sheet has expired. Even the negroes of the State have turned against it in disgust. It expired like a criminal in the parish prison, and was buried at the pub lic expense. As to old Newman, he never recovered from the effects of the mill at Brashear City, where the editor of this paper had the pleas ure of punishing him for his iniquities in the Crescent City. From Brashear City after the fight he went straight to Washington, exhibi ted his loyal wounds, and bruises, and black eyes, and claimed the special favor of the Senate as a union martyr. They gave hii the position of chaplain of the Senate, at $25 a prayer, and perquisites. He runs a church in Washington, and gets well paid for it, be sides the Senate duties. He left the Rev. Peel Garlic as political and religious editor, t, run and wind up the N. O. Advocate. It is reported that grief and meanness has reduced him to about twenty-five poupds of bone and dried meatand that he has taken the veil at the negro orphan asylum near this place, deter mined never to let another white man see his cadaverous face and bald head again. John H. and Louisa M. Williams were di vorced by the Circuit Court of Buchanan county, Mo., on application of the wife. Next day, the couple became reconciled. A New York merchant went up to Pitts field, Mass., where he had a creditor who was unable to pay him, and shut up his country customer's store. When he got back to the city he found his own closed by one of his creditors. Miss Kellogg has deslined fourteen thou sand dollars in gold to sing in fourteen enter tainments to be given in the new opera house built by the Viceroy of Egypt in honor of the Suez Canal. -- --.H~- - Political neceosity in West-Virginia has in vented the term "Letuppers," applied to that wing of the Republican party which is dis posed to show a liberal spirit toward the dis franchised. In Mississippi the same neces sity has given us the term "Bitterenders," applied to those who oppose any concessions. At Houston, Texas, they are building three churches, two educational edifices, a large and elegant Masonic Hall for the Grand Lodge of Texas, one of the finest court-houses in the State, and the dredge boats for the Ship Channel. Besides, both Eureka and the City Mills are turnipg out a large quantity of excellent cloth, and giving useful employ ment to many who would otherwise be idle; so says the Union.

As the boxes necessary to convey this amount of female adornment would occupy too much space in their apartments, fresh ones are to be sent down every morning, and those which have been worn on the preceding day will be removed. It is the etiquette at Compie'gle that a dress shall not be worn a second time. that a dress shall not be worn a second time. The Chicago Agitator is to be removed to Boston. Mrs. Livermore will be editor-in cbief, and the editorial corps will be orm posed of Julia Ward Howe, Lucy Stone Blackwell, William Lloyd Garrison, Col. T. W. Higginson, and other writers. There is a report that Grant is about to spize Cuba. As Grant has a brother-ia-law out of business, and as there are no more vaeancies in this country, the report seems probable. Ill General Butler has introduoed a bill in Congress for the payment of pensions by postal money orders, thus doing away with pension agents, whitling down the expense of pension-paying amazingly, and prevent ing the pensioners from beigg swindled by the sharks who live on them. Senator Sumner, in his speech on the Cu ban question, admitted that if the insurgents in Cuba had established a government ano shown a oapacity to res'sit 8 awish authori ties, we should be justified in recognizing tbe.- as belligerents. According to his sta te ts, they have agovernment in name sad not in fact, and can only make a guer rilla warfare. The immense quantity of waste beef that roams over the pastures of Texas is at last in a fair way to be utilised. A company has been organized in Philadelphia, under the style of *'United States and West India Fresh Heat and Fruit Company." It has been duly chartered under the lawsof Penn sylvania, and its principal offce is to be lo cated in New Orleans. The object at the company is to packfiresh beef in Texas, for exportatioa to various parts of the world. Meat put up in New Orleans for six cents a ponsd. This mode of packing beef has been tested with success. and there certainly seems to be in it a stimulus toward industry in a branch of commerce for which Texas, in common with the great pampas of South America, is so bounteously provided by nature.

OUn IMPENDING Doox.-A public lec tnrer in this city recently argued that religion was useless, because "man.s existence on the earth is momentary. Science teaches us that in 6.300 years more a grand deluge will end his race and make him a fossil. You may think this an idle tale, but it is not. Astronomy shows that the earth is oscilating in the angle of its axis to the sun in periods of 21,000 years. The Zones are undergoing a constant change. Now, at the North Pole it'is growing colder each year, and at the South Pole warmer. Thus, an immense ac cumulation of glaciers, or icebergs at the North Pole will result, while at the South they will not form at all. In 6.300 years the glaciers will have accumulated so much that they will suddenly overbalance the earth. Then the waters of the sea will rush from the south to the north, and there will be a deluge."
