We listen to reler of mto e a d gladnes, And ehoea of laughter sad teaes. As St. Patrek'e Day to t.e soma of "he Idle" Remalls times e plases eer kars. The am.bret of >aa, the harp snthe shamok. The Qroe ng the deep ea' white ham. The thousand emetiomn all sameles mad tender, That are heard la tkhe l ebe of hoe. Pat days of proud beasing, whom Ireland was teacher Of arts to the roet of the world .re yet the stmrange ag, base, yet boasting of freedom, Was over its green glades unfurled. NFuring mother of amsate, proud patron of sages, Dispenser of favors to king, Cradle of soldiers, whose fame, peat and preeeet, History tells, and the poeet still sags. Land of suferings and shadows, of long days of sorrows, Prostrate victim to treaoheeas hates, When the "Penal Laws" terrors were given thy children, And mourning wasr heard In thy gates. Thy holy bells silenced, thy priests seeking shelter Among the rude clefts of the hills, Thy children sad wanderers on land and on ocean, Familiar with poverty's ills. Land weeping, yet hopeful, impulsive, yet patient, Through centurles battling with foes: Crashed, rising, held down by the might of oppreselon, Strong, when enemiesjoyed In thy throes. Given over to foemen, despised and deserted, Only one ray of brlghtness from heaven, And that covered up in each bosom's stll depths The faith by'S; atrloik given. - land of women as pure as their own valleys' snow-drop, And cheering as bright snmmer's sun i Olmen whose narema ring where the bravest are reckoned, First ever where brave deeds are done. Whose arms and whose hearts are ready to succor The oppressed who in tyrants' grasp moan. And that liberty gained for their homes of adoption Which lh vain they have wished for their own. -rvising-n pride from a long night of weakness, New strength in each heart and each soul, We join with thy sons in today's celebration, And their raptures our feelings control. May thy future be bright as thy honors untarnished, Thy green felds from strangers be free, And thy glories expand. 'till thy golden harp floate From thy fair mountain crests to the sea. The celebration of St. Patrick'sAay lant Sunday was the moot appropriate, enthusiastic and splendid ever witnessed in this city. That it took place on the feast day itself, which, being Sunday, enabled many to participate who would not have been able to attend on a week day, contributed greatly towards the soouccess of the celebration, no one doubts, but it is universally conceded that to the existence and activity of the Hibernian Benevolent and Mutual Aid Association, as the first and princi pal cause, is due the grandeur of the demon stration. Heretofore every true son of St. Patrick at tended mass on his feast and displayed the shamrock prominently in bhi button-hole or hat-ribbon, but there was no organized move ment towards a public demonstration wherein all would testify to the world their love for their faith and their country, and their rever 'tace for the memory of the great Apostle. Last year, it is true, the Hibernian Association in a body attended mass and paraded the streets, but it was then in its infancy, strug gling, as it were, for life, and the display on that occasion pales into insignificance when compared to the pageant of last Sunday. At that parade there were only six branches, num bering about five hundred men; at this, fifteen hundred men appeared in lipe as members of eleven branches. The day dawned dark, damp and chilly, alight sboweks of rain falling at intervals till about eleven o'clock, when the clouds to a great extent disappered, leaving the atmo sphere and the street. in perfect condition for the long march laid down in the programme. At aa early hour the members of the several branches began to assemble at their respective halls, from which each ,rooeeded in a body to its parochial church to a . High Mass. Branch No. 1 attended fbes at t.Patrick's Church, where ample preparations had been made by Father Allen to receive them. Fa ther Th. Butler, .8. J., delivered a most elo quent panegyric on St. Patrick, from which we make the following extract: He did not die aftl be esw the wholeef.Ire land converted from lams to the light of Christianity. If nothielse proves the great es of our aint, thise sCoite The con veredoa of ae mol m a great thing, but the eonvestloc of a tion, asd i so short a time speaks worlds in favor of the Sanlt God or, ned to Ireland. The faith Bt. Patrick in stitutel in Irelaend, exists not only in Ireland, but all overthe world. St. Patrick died fbar teen hndredyearago, and hispeopleprerve his memory. A11 over the world,wherever bad laws havedivew his children, in the United tates, in Canada, in Australia, wherever the ann ries sad sts, may they were driven by bad laws, if yge will, but God had other ideas - 8t. Patrick was the Apostle of Ireland, Gookd the Irish people as the apostles of the wr Whser thsr. go, thm. we sae th roesef Jeus Christ, tbss qn e nd the fithM of 5. Paitri there they rlse temples and altars in honor of-tbeirillglcs Saint. Noble nation whatever ti enemies have been able to wreestfrom them, thnyaocold not pluck out their love for their 8aint,'ir gat and go rious country, their reveren or God. Yes, they have had trials, have been rook down, have been robbed of bome, been sh ested to all man's malice, but through all they still true; they have told the oppressor take b , take property, take liberty,life itself, bat0 cannot deprive us of our faith, of our love for our apostle and for God. Certainly nothing but faith so deep-rooted could keep us so firm. No nation in the world can be compared in love of country, in love of true religion with the Irish. Thisdoes not interfere with their love of the land of their adoption; wherever they go, although faithful to theircountry, they are still faithful to the country of their adoption, and notwithstanding they ean never forget the love and gratitude they owe to the land that gave them birth. This Is a.great sign that there is life in Ireland yet, for so long as they are true to their country, true to their apostle and their God, they may suffer, they may go to Calvary, walk on Calvary, still only ttating the Saviour. It is not a proof that loves a nation when He sends them prosperity; on the contrary, they must not abandon faith, faith gives the Irish most of their prosperity in this world. Yhat lesson will we draw from this: if Hod loves a nation He will keep them true to religion, never allow them to become apostates. Looking back on the lives of the great and glorious men who have gone before us, we must hand down the blessing we have received, our faith, and be true to the trust-true to the faith received from St. Patrick. Let me, in conclusion, as a priest of the Irish Church, as one of the d6 scendants of Ireland's apostle, tell you, with all certainty, if you love.your apostle, if you loveyour nation and country, and will be true to it, you must possess faith. Those not so united are not true to God, not true to country. In other words, if you are a Catholic you cannot be a patriot unless you serve God, for the teach ings of the Catholic Church are love to God and faithfulness to country. Remain true to faith and become imitators of the great and glorious apostle, and be the means of bringing love and blesipgs on our country, which has become renowned in the teachings of our ilustriods apostle. Braneh No. 2 attended Mass at St. Peter's Church, where the Rev. Father Kane, in his usual brilliant and impressive manner, de- livered the panegyrio of the great Saint Father Cornelius Moynihan blessed the two beautiful new flags presented to the Branch by the Sisters of the Holy Cross. Before Mass the Sisters of the Holy Cross also presented them with a beautiful wreath as a testimonial of tbeir'gratitude to the gallant Hibernians of the old Third. Branch No. 3 attended Mass at St. Joseph's Church where Father Rice, one of the Lazarist Fathers now on the Missions in this city, de livered the sermon. The Branch received the marked approbation of the good will of the people of St. Joseph's parish in this shape of two beautiful wreaths; one presented by Miss Lizzie Donovan in behalf of herself and Mrs. Matthew Hart; another by Mrs. Mar tinez in her own behalf and that of Miss A. McArdle. Branch No. 4 attended at the Church of St. John the Baptist, where the Rev. Jas. Hegarty, a distinguished priost from the Cathedral of Cork, now on a brief visit to the city, de livered the panegyrio. Most of the other branches, we understand' attended Mas in a body, 'o. 6 asating #t 81. Alphonsus Church. Before mass their new flag was blessed by Father Defy, who also deliver ed an eloquent and touobhin address to the members. Though it had been previously decided that Ten PrBOCZsIsoN should start precisely at 12f o'clock, on ao count of the latenes-of the hour at which the Masses were over and the time required by the several branches to reach Canal street, it was 1I o'clock before it commenced to beve.

Their beautiful banner of green and white silk, on the front had the following inscription : " The Parient Stem, Branch No. 1 of the H. B. and M. A. A. of Louisiana." On the reverse was an excellent painting of the great Irish Repealer, Daniel O'Connell. Another banner, rich and beauti ful beyond description was carried in a car riage and was attended, as a guard of honor, by Messrs. John Hart, H. L. Shaw, John Scanlan, M.

This young but vigorous branch turned out about eighty members under Mr. T. D. Casey as Marshal, Mesasrs. D. and S. Cook as side.

This magnifieent ban ner was imported from France sand was offered for competition at the Louisiana Retreat Fair, which was held in Odd Fellow's Hall last December, and though two older and stronger branches used every exertion to carry off the prize, No. 9 was triumphant by a handsome majority. That the Banner must be superb is attested by the fact that these three braeehee expended over $7000 in their efforts to obtain it. Father Peter O'Neil, the son of our re spected fellow-citizen, Thos. O'Neil, Esq., and assistant at St. Stephen's Church, Bouligny, rode in a carriage in advance of this Branch.

Laet to datse ergmalastla and in namerw Jeat order; bat by ao mpeee lesst aspbem or enthusiasm, this Branch preented a splen did ealk.to the grand prooqeeson by which It was preceded. Composed e tirely of young men, the elastieity of whoe step and the buoyancy of whodt spirits have not been sub dued by the struggles with wbich life is ever beset, they-attracted the-tspeti -admirdtion of the young ladies. Nor were the old of both sexes slow or meeaured in expressing their pleaure at seeing these young men thus boldly proclaiming to the world, their honest pride in their Faith, Country and Lineage. Before joining the processeaion the Branch marched out Common street to the residence of Mr. D. P. Soanlan, where that gentleman, in a neat and appropriate address presented them with a beautiful wreath, in behalf of his wife and daughter, Mirs. Widow Dr. Wm. Cleary. The wreath was received by Mr. John J. Finney, who expresed the gratitude of the Branch to the kind ladies for their elegant gift and to Mr. Scanlan for the words of en couragement and eemmendation which he had addressed to them. The Branch turned out ninety men, Mr. Geo. McCloskey acting as Marshal, with Messrs. W. J. J. Armstrong and T. Lynch as aide. The officers for the present year are: John J.

O'S(llivan's Band furnished the music, and delighted the spectators with several new pieces which had never, heretofore, been performed by a brass band-in this city. THx ROUTn extended down Rampart street to Mandeville street, in the Third District, and up Chartree, at. Charles and Carondelet streete to St. An drew street in the Fourth District, thence down Magazine, Annunciation and Camp streets to Canal, where, at about bi o'clock, the procesasion was disbanded. The streets along the line of march were densely crowded with ladies and children, who enthusiastially cheered the men as they passed, waving band kerchiefs and otherwise marking their hearty concurrence in the celebration. Many private residences were beautifully decorathd with lags and evergreens. and amongst the publio boildings we noticed, with pleasure, a hand some decoration of the Times ocae. The Hibernia Insursnee Company was beautifully decorated with evergreens, the graceful fee toens of arbor vitae and a large harp of the same, plainly indieating the hand and taste of an experienced artist. The coup d'oeil from the balcony of the City Hotel as the procession advanced down Camp street, with its long line of stalwart men, beautiful banners, and many flags streaming on the breeze, was .naguificent, and was calculated to make everyIrishman feel proud of his country and '.is countrymen, and every American of his honored Hlibernian fellow citizens.

The officers of No. 9 had a grand dinner prepcard for the members of the Braneb, whieh was partaken of, after the procesaion, with that zest which is known only to the hungry. No. 10 received the hospitalities of ;everal gentlemen in this city and in Algiers, where they made a little procesilon of their own to give the people of the Fifth an idea of the dis play on this side of the river. This terminated the grandest celebration of St. Patrick's Day ever beheld in this city.
