We hablted but an hour in New Iberia,
Price's stage leaving at absht soarlee. We
had no time to ersiea the spot made deco
lste b.'tbe latefre. It is olated that the
citizens of this enterprising town are pre
paring to build up at once the bornt portion
£the town, and that the improvements will
I be far better than those destroyed.
If they employ mechanics who under
stand how to give the new buildings the
Iproper proportions to be ornamental to
1 Main street and the town, it will be a great
c credit to those who erect these baildings. It
'costs no more to make a building synmetri
cal than it does to make the proportions un
sightly. Finished mechanics understand
{ all about these proportions. and their arvlei
should be sought by those who put up new
And would not this be a proper time to
9add a little width to Main street, which has
injured the appearane* of New Iberia by
being too narrow. The long line oý build
ings to be erected on the Bayou side of
*+i Main street might be set back of the old
-sites twenty or thirty feet, and at some fu
c tture day. as the old and cheap buildings
a" have to give place to better buildings. the
street could be made wider nearly its whole
_ length. This matter is of great importants
to that town, and as New Iberia will be at
some future day a town of great importance.
it would be well to attend to this improve
a meant at once.

It is needless to say tllht the tut~-ee oLthe

The closing piece, " John' Audersont my

Last week) Miss Mary Andcrson oriier.,' to
the public, and more especially to the parcnts
Ind friends of her scholars, a fuir opportunity
to judge of their progress, attainments and
abilities, by an examination in their respect
ive studies and an exhibition of other lite
rary acquirements. Entertainimug a deep and
unselfish interest in many, if not all, of her
papils, I availed myself of her kind invita
tation and attended the exercises with pleas
ant anticipations and happy satisfaction at
the result. So highly gratified am I at her
success, that it is my greatest desire to give a
full and extended account of the occasion, yet
cireumslanees confine me rather to a synop
Arriving rather late, we missed the exami
nation of the Primer classes, but have since
learned from reliable authority that the lit:
tie boys and girls acquitted themselves credi
tably. The Arithmetic Class was called up
immediately after my arrival, and was sub
jected to a thorough and rigid examination,
from" What is Arithmetic?" through com
pound interest. This is the most difficult, as
well as the most important branch of an educa
tion, and I was happy to see the lperfect ac
quaintance which each member Ihal with its
different rles, and the correctness with which
the moseet intricate question could be analyzed
anp solved. The Grammar and Geography
Classes were respectively called upon to
pass the scholars' ordeal, and I confidently as
sort, "without any compunction visitings of
conscience," that I never witnessed a nmr ie
esatis.etory examination. The advanced
I..-a a eqmi~d homor for themselves and
credit for theirteachers, by so coiirjieing nt
axhibition of their psosciency. In the former
stady, they were ot conufied to text books,
but pieces ofpoetry, the most difficult of pars
ing, were given to them for analysis, arrange
meat and parsing. In the latter, we were
impressed with the accuracy and precision
with which each member could tell the rela
ti"e position of different cities, their comnpa
rative population, the boundaries of different
countries, and the situatioh of their rivers,
lakes, mountains and cities. The United
itates History Class, consisting of Misses C.
Wilson, N. Gatte, S. Gerdy, and Master \Vil
lie Jones, were next called upon. I men
tion the names because I think special notice
due them. They were unsparingly catechised,
required to relate the various incidences, to
give the date of important events, to eunice
rate the different settlements in the various
sections of the country, to relate the conse
quences attendant apn. the many Itndian
wars, and state the gradnal increase of popn
lation and power feme the time when the ad
venturous genius of Columbus prompted him
to breast the billows of the Atlantic to that
happy period when the American Colonies,
clothed with the powers of independence,
iassaed the heavy rusponsibility of a nation
aity. The examimes closed with the examni
nation of Miss N. Gates in Algebra. achici
I pronounce as perfect. I think the tc;ahler
and scholar may well be sutiprwually pIound
of the other.
