Our paper is now a sn power to watch over Catholic interests, and by thf aiding us in extending its circulation you will re be assisting us to make it a terror to bigots at the head of Freedmen'w Bureans, and their th coadjutors throughout the land, who, in their blind hatred of the C ~ -- Church, wonuld punish those who profeamsracdoti s of ]igion by refusing togivtha&t'e yment. p We wish the ladies, w an ways so of- PI cient in any good work, outake this matter in Ol hand, and send us in the largest lists and thus th obtain the most valuable prizes. fe OUR SUCCESS th Our success during the month of December t t has been highly gratifying. We have added m to our list of subcribers over four hundred new names; sold several hundred copies to the newsmen; and what is the best evidence of our appreciation by the commercial commu nity is the fac ththat we published eleven and a half columns of business advertisements lut Sunday, and they have been steadjw-inerse- n ing for the last month at the rate lf a cotlumo ii an a half per week.

' All who, from any moti4e, take an inter- t leat in the publication of a CatholiO journar in this city, onght to mante t it by their presence on an occasion of such moment to i the enterprise, and whiey recurs but once a year. - Even though at the expense of con siderable personal inconvenience, persons who really mean busiaas will show their earnestness at moment of this kind. It isaseless here to reiterate the arga- tl ments in favor of the presence of a Catholic e element in the press of this country. 'It tj must be evident to the most superficialob- t+ server to whit a wonderful extent public o opinion isinfluenced byjournalism,and how p vital the necessity that exists for avery con- c siderable element of population and thought il r to be represented in that fdsm. Even 1h though weakly, ap. inefficiently done, in comparison with what might and ought to t be the' case, better so than not pt all. o In New-York, Philadelphia, Boston, Bal- a . timore, St. Louis, Chicago, Charleston, and tl many otlfr places of much less importance a - and meant, the necessity of a Catholic jour- r nal is recognized, and responded to by the C Catheile population. Apart from matters t of faith, questions of a political and social a character are constantply eiooted, where the I abrspcq of a newspaper medium would be v p highly detrimental. Even a feeble protest 1 prevents judgment.from going by default i ald ser ves to cheek a spirit .o aggression A which, s aiways' the more ingolent froem 1 . being irresponsible. I r - This paper has the hearty sanction of all r those officials whose indorsememt. could be I ) necessary to guarantee its position. The A it Most Re. Archbishop presided over its 's earliest ioeption. The Very Rev. Abbe e Percbe, Vicar General, and so well known a Sthroughout the Bouth as a journalist, ls 1 President of the Boari of Directors and . principal editor, when permitted by the i re press of sther-du ess , while th. hot f i clergy of the city and arch-diocese giv e s a undertaking their warm suppo , some of c y them being members of oard of Di- r 1 rectors. at All these th are already known, and t tr the onl tional guaranty that can well ar quired by the most cautious supporter 4 of the enterprise is some assurance of its 4 prospective success in a business point of 4 T view. It is precisely for their satisfaction in on this point that we isist so strongly on 1 us their presence at the occasion herein re- 1 ferred to. We think that the Board now directing the business of the paper will make such a or statement of its affairs as to convince the 1d most despondent of its assured success. 0 The recent increase in subscriptions has of been most fattering, while, as yet, the field nu- properly tribatary to oqr list is scarcely nad touched. st It must be remembered that this paper is as- not yet a year old. It is scarcely known ni in many portions of the arch-dfooese, and, even where known, many persons, who yo would be friends, amre deterred by the ap ing prehension that it will meet the fate of in "ts stability so frequently heretofbre brought it within their notice. The position of sue of cess already attained, however, constantly M brings gratifying results of recognition in tlhe shape of subscriptions wlhich were un solicited. Our progress in securing advertising pa two tronage has been equally marked and satis rip factory. To those conversant with news paper business and rates, the twelve or thir ght teen columns of paying advertisements pre Ib- sented by our pages give the most unequivo cal proof of a healthy prosperity. The best 12 way, however, to understand all these ez, thingqin a detailed and unmistakable man the ner, is to be present at the contemplated reunion. Alas.

ITS BUILDI 8. When the Bedemptorisa Or tobkcharge t of this parish, a few Yeawrs ago, oceu pied an old frame building upon the to of their present residence, and made use aI tent to entertain a few friends who visi them on a 4th of July. The shanty and the tent have long since disappeared, and six or seven magnificent brick buildings oceu pying their site andcontiguous grounds have converted the then poverty-stricken region into the most city-like locality in New Or leans. On one side of Constance street stand that noble school edifice, the upper portion of which is known as St. Alphonsus' Hall, and the still more splendid church under the name of the same Saint. Across the street two spacious school buildings, the residence of the clergy, and the German Church of St-. Mary occupy nearly the the whole block, with a large front on Jo sephine street. Farther along Constance, between Josephine and Jackson streets, a very handsome new brick structure towefi loftily over the surrounding bualding,-de- t icated, also,, to purposes of' educatlon. Across Jackson street stands the elegant little Chapel of Notre Dame, known as the French Church, in charge of the same order, while back of St. Alphonsus' Church, and fronting on Magazine, the St. Elisabeth's Asylum may acknowledge its existence due, in great part, to the same a ant energy which has vivified at of the neighborhood. ITS OURC8E. Whence means came for all this can struc and improvement, is a mystery. pnrh; hnnrih populaous at present, is not to be compared with many Protestant. congregations in point of wealth. It would require a good architect to estimate the im mense outlay that has. been necessary to effect what has been done there within so short a time. Not only the ettent, but the completeness and elegance of the work ac complished attractattention. The interior of St. Alphonsus' Church, with its magnifi cent new altar, its carvdd altar rail, and handsome marble steps in front of the satc tuasy, its attractive paintings and tasteful gilding attracts the instant a4nmlration of the most fastidious. We have heard the deci ded opinion expressed by a connoisseur in such matters, that this church stands unri valed in the United States asa finished spe cimen of ecclesiastical architecture. 1DUCJATION. The Redemptorists have six schools-two English, two German, and two French a one of each being for boys, and the other afor girls. In these tchools are educated twenty-three hundred children, about one Sfifth.of the number in the pubilr schools of - the whole city. Of course, it is impossible - that the Rev. Fathers should instruct this t multitude personally, but by their careful selection of teachers ahd supervision of de Stails, the same end of moraland intellectual a development is attained. Any visitor at - their public exhibitions pill beastisfied not only that the progress of the pupils in arith - metic, grammar, and other branhes of t- knowledge is fully as great as at other in s- stitutions, but that they have learned still - more thoroughly to respect religion and honor their parents. The two most impor -tant sciences are love and obedience. SOCIETIES. mSpace forbids us from giving more than a list of the charitable and devotional associ ations which bless and ornament this par ish. o Besides the universal Society of St.. Vin cent of Paul, we find the St. Alphonsus' Benevolent Society, engaged in the same Sgoodre works of practical charity, the Young Ladies' St. Aloysius Society, the Aciety of the Children of Mary, St. Aloysius' Boy Society, and the Young Men's Ctholic Lit e erary Society. Under the same beneficent Sand watchful influence that moves thea ma Schinery of all thisl activity, these associa Stions are in full and healthful operation. ~ loNOitAiCE AND IDLENESS OF IONKS. SIu-this parish candid persons can see the Sdifferencebetween falsehood as published, an'dtruth as it exists. Authors who, either at through ignorance or malice, exert all their ti powerse to slander the Catholic Church, eon stantly reiterate the chargeof indolence and eetders. cae .su wilr will s ever have-.a e.pportually _tt the themselves. The public of New' Ori.eas ,_ -howr, can hardly have itse onidenlae abnsedin thatrway. New Orleans people know that this one Id small community of ,a religious order, il pal charge of but one of the manyparishesin the for city, educates one-fifth a" many children as nro the whole public slhoo system of the whole eni city. Everybody knows that in doing this an they are not backed by the public treseury, pri but, on the contrary, are immensely impe ded by the educational tax which that tree- pl sury drains from their people. The charge, on then, that ignorance obtains any footing or pr suppost among religious orders, mnst-4aw to its proofs from scenes very remote from this ad locality. to idleness, where will be -found any of colle 'on of business men, in any bank, in- ap' surange mpany or other "association inj of equal.nu who have accomplished grl one-half or one- th as much- for the pub- na lie welfare and p rity of the city, as thi these few venerable p ta, whose vows poverty deprive them of personal in- W terestin the property they ha created. in All, however, can learn their pri achievements the great lesson,,that th s jet something worth livingfor besides perso on aggrandizement. Energy and activity deed, not be selfish to And their powers called gil into the fullest and most beneficent em ployment. ati toi The Fair. On visiting the Fair now being hel co the St. Joseph's Hall, 'Cmmon eat, to no aid in building the.. nw ,. we foun d everything going on.i e melt' harlnoni ous and enthusi manner. The Hall is in, tastefully rated, and the stands are no cove with most attractive article, ab for use and amusement. Mrs. Ross and Mrs. McCabe, the lady of the popular de Chief Engineer of the Fire Department,met fa we . .- . e 'pelled e1 to take a chance in some magnificent B. scheme from one of their young lady assist- ml ants. Passing on we came to the Phanix Ft House, presided over by Mrs. B. Berkery, re the fancy stand adjoining being under the qt charge of Mrs. McFarlane and Miss OtNeill. e Mrs.Bruning and Mrs. Henderberry admin- C ister the affairs of Nos. five and si. a Mrs. Drennen has number seven, and Mrs. mI McLoughlan is guardian of one of the most ,m interesting objects at the Fair--a small sil ver-mounted glass case, with a model of the Crib of Bethlehem. The upper end of the col Hall is adorned with a splendidly laid out restaurant, under the charge-of Mrs. Nolan u and Mrs. Sadler. They have everything g that the most fastidious epicure can call for at the ordinary prices. 1ext to the restan rant, Mrs. Power, Mrs. Stewart, Miss Lizzie Byrne, Mrs. Slemmer, Mrs. Fletcher, Mrs. John Ford, and Mrs. Egan preside over sev. eral stands, assisted by Miss Egan and sev- :I eral other young ladies, whose names have" escaped us. in The Post-office is amiably and efficiently m administered by Miss Loftys, who dispenses altogether with the usual red tape impedi- a ments of Uncle Sam's officials, and whose d males never fail. We remarked, however, (f that female correspondents were not srogo- g larly supplied. -' Mrs. McCaffrey, Mrs. Swarbriek and irss a Gibbons dispense the hospitalities of two ( j other stands, assisted by Miss Walsh and L Miss Gillen, and other interesting young g ladies. Mrs. Lynch takes charge of two s * stands, msisted by Miss Kelly, Miss Gard- ai ner, Miss Markey and staff. The eminent success of the Fair may be t considered assured. We judge so not , d merely from the uncompromising zeal of the lady managers and jsistants, but fromn 0 the evidences of progress made under our personal observation. Apart from this, pri- b rate information obtained from a junior a and bachelor attache of this office, induces b i- the cotviction that the wiles and artifices r-of the fair conspirators are much more effective than would be discernible by the ' - umore staid and wary visitor. a' Our young friend above rtferred to in oe tended to be as liberal as S five dollar bill ig would permit, but the first of those interest of ing documents was soon followed by three >y others. Here, however, our enthusiastic t- friend of the fair was rewarded for his gal- 1 ht lantry, ~for so well'wns his credit establish a- ed through his cash operations, by-the time a- hie was broke, that he succeeded in going ten dollars in debt afterwards. Those of our readers who have not yet ie participated in these home re-unions of St. d, Joseph's parish, will still have an opportu or nity during two or three evenings, of drop ir ping in to see their friends.
