There were a great many promenade.» out sight-seeing, and the magio lantern man had quite a. large audi ence. —That's a good idea of Col Joe Walker's throwing open the doors of his elegant bil- liard room, at the corner of St Charles and Canal streets, for the inspection of ladies. We advise all to visit him and examine the beauties of his place. ----A strong patrol of the King's detectives will search the oity to find any one at work, and if any offender be found, he will be im mediately incarcerated in the dungeons of the royal prison preparatory to being guillotined. The King will not be disobeyed. —Rex and suite visited the Varieties and St. Charles last evening to witness the per- formances of their Graoes the Dukes of Arden and Arkansas. The King seemed much pleased, and expressed great gratifica- tion at the sucoess of his popular noblemen. ----We sincerely hope that the visitors to our city will not leave ns as soon as the Car- nival is over, but will remain here long enough to "do" our entire eity. We would dislike to have them return to their, homes still comparative strangers to the many points of interest in and about the Crescent City. ----It has been rumored that the cotton factors do not pnrpose to give their clerks a full holiday to-day. The rumor may proba bly reach the ears of his Majesty Rex, and if, upon investigation it proves trne, woe betide the disloyal employers. The wrath of the King is terrible, and it withereth whomsoever it striketh. GENERAL TICKET AGENTS»' CON YEN* TION.

Tue crowd was much larger yesterday at the Fair Grounds than on any day previous, and it seemed as though the city had turned out en masse to witness the display. Below we give the sports afield, which were witnessed by a large crowd. The Race«. The races yesterday afternoon attracted a much larger crowd than was anticipated. The Grand Stand, some time before the start, was crowded .with lady and gentlemen visitors, anxiously awaiting the opening of the sport. At the appointed hoar the trotters oame around into the stretch and entered the cool ing ground. After several attempted starts in the first as well as in the other heats, they got off, and the following is the result of the day's work: SUMMARY.

Rice rnled out. beeond Reed ,—At the tap of the drum they got off well together, both going easily, but it was evident from the aotions of Leonard's jockey that he was an old one in the business, for on the turn he took tbe track from Fal mouth, causing that horse to shorten his stride for some distance. They kept their respective positions down the back stretch and home, Leonard winning in 1:50. The Pigeon Shooting.

Monday morning about 6 o'clock a young man named Eugene Bruce, thirty years old, and a native of Franoe, and by occupation a batcher, committed saioide by hanging him' self in the hay loft in the rear of his premises on Constance street, near Louisiana Avenue. One of the laborers employed on the premises had ocoasion to go into the stable about 7 o'clock Monday morning, and found the body of the unfortunate man hanging from the hay loft. It appears that the deceased Brace and his wife have been living a very disagreeable lile for the past three or four yean, and were al ways fighting and quarreling. Mrs. Braoe, his wife, last August" attempted to commit suicide by jumping into the river, but was discovered and rescued by Sergeant Auooin and several citizens, and .has often since that time stated to parties who reside in the vicinity that she would kill herself. Mrs. Bruce left the house at »«quarter to 6 o'clock in the morning to- go to market, and immediately after she left tbe house her hus band went to a grocery store in tbe vicinity and purchase! a piece 'of new rope and re turned and walked into the stable, dosing the doors after him. He tied one end of the rope to one of the rafters in the hay loft, and tied the other end around his neck and then let himself swing. Tbe unfortunate man, although continually fighting and quarreling with [his wife, never acted in a manner that wonld lead any one to believe that he would have committed so rash an aot. Several parties met him on his way to the grocery store a few moments before be hang himself, and he seemed to be in the very best of spirits. Coroner Ch istant has been notified and will hold an inquest X RIVER DISASTER. Loss of the Mary Bell. Interesting Particulars. When the news reached the oity on Sunday evening tljat the large and elegant steamer Mary Bdl had bnrned to the water's edge while moored to the wharf at Yicksbnrg, there was considerable excitement manifested ; owing not only to the general sympathy felt for the owners and shippers who bad suffered so severe a loss, but from the fact that it was reported that the boat being crowded with passengers en roule to New Orleans for the purpose of participating in the festivities of the Carnival, a great number of them were certainly lost . The telegraph office was for some time crowded with anxious, friends of the passen gers on the boat, and it was nbt until definite information was received that no lives had been lost that the excitement subsided. The boat reached the wharf at Yioksburg about noon, and the fire broke out at 2 o'olook in the afternoon, and in a very short time the beautiful floating palace was nothing more than a charred wreck upon the waters, where ohly a short time before it had floated eo proudly, a thing of beauty and an object of generous pride to its friends. The freight consisted of little over 5,000 bales of cotton, 8000 sacks of eotton seed and a lot of oil oaks. The following dispatches were received this morning by Mr. Jesse K. Bell, of the firm of Bell and Menge : Vicksbubg, Feb. 27.—To J. K. Bell, oare Bell à Menge, New Orleans : The Mary Bell bnrned this evening at the landing, with five thousand bales of cotton. No lives were'lost. The boat and cargo total loss. Will be down Tuesday. Alf. Grissom. Vicksbubo, Feb. 27.—To J. K. Beil, oare Bell & Menge, New Orleans : The Mary Bell burned here at 2 o'clock Fifty-one hundred bales of cotton and two hundred passengers on board. No lives lost J. F. Hicks. The boat was owned by Oapt J. F. Hicks, Alf. Grissom and R. Sinnott, and was insured for $55.000, principally in Western compa nies. She was valued at $90,000, but was really worth muoh more. The insurance on the cotton on board amounted to about $300,000. The list of con signees having been destroyed, it is impossi ble at this time to give the names of the un derwriters and the losses sustained by them respectively. The Faotors' and Traden' Insurance Com pany had re-insnred its liability on the cargo to the extent of $90,000, $70,000 of which was effected in companies of other States. The net* loss sustained by this company therefore, will not probably exceed $50,000. Tbe management of the Faotors' and Tradera' lo saranoe Company, deserve eredit for the prn dence evinced by them in re-insnring to the extent they did. As a description of this elegant floating palaoe might be of interest at this time, we append a paragraph published in the Bul letin when the boat first appeared at our wharf: The extreme length is 325 feet, breadth 56 feet, floor 50 feet, depth of hold 11 feet Add to this a sheer of 6ix feet from amidship, fore and aft, and a guard of 18 feet all around, then some idea of the proportions of the gigantic vessel may be formed. The bottom and knuckle planks are five inches thiok and from fifty to seventy feet long. Id no other ship-yard in this country, perhaps, could these immense timbers be bandied. No one can look at this magnificent boat without feeling impressed with its superior strength and safety. The tonnage is esti mated at 3800 ton?, storage capacity 10,000 bales cotton. Draught—aft four feet, forward three feet. Thus it will be seen two points of great interest have been attained—a light draught cf water and great carrying capacity. Anotner departure by the owners of the Mary Bell is in the boilers. They have a battery of eight steel boilers, having three times the tensile strength of iron, Um» insuring entire immunity from explosion. The engines are 34 inches in diameter with 9 feet stroke. Wheels 38 feet in diameter, 16} feet bucket And thus has disappeared one of the most elegant river palaces that ever plied the waters of the Mississippi. Snob a lose is a very serions one) just at this time, and we sympa thize deeply with the unfortunate gentemen who had embarked it* the venture, and who won the greatest applause for their energy and enterprise. We trust they will not be discouraged by this lose, but will soon re place their elegant steamer by another of which they will have equal reason to feel proud. Y. M. B.
