From every window and along the gallery
of the Jpenl4aes office small green tags, bear

Sag, making a very neat tribute to the
2.e .2m' buildings were gracefully fee

" THE SONS or ERIN :"
" Citizens of every nation, aiwaystrue to their native

virtues illunine the pages of history; their courage and
patriotism defy all persecutions."
A splendid Irish flag was flying from the
Picqee office, and the whole face of their
building was covered with evergreens, inter
sperced with small flags and well chosen
mottoes, the front of the gallary being further
adorned with a splendid harp. The mottoes
read as follows: " Up for the green, the Sun

The STAR returns thanks for the many cour
tesies received during the day, a list of which
would include all of the Branches of the Hi
bernian Assooiation and the different sections
of the Total Abstinence Societies. We may
particularly mention delightful serenades,
after the procession was dismissed, from
Branches 8, 11, 2, 3, 14, 10, 9, " The Parent
Stem, Branch 1, Nos. 4 and 6, the latter headed
by that admirable band of musicians, the
Hibernian Cornet Band, under the leadership
of our young friend, Mr. T. J. O'Sullivan.
THE RELIGIOVI CELEBRATION Ok TE DAY
AND BANNER BLrSSINGS.
Be it said to the honor of the Irishmen of
this city that they celebrated the feast of the
great apostle of their land in a truly Catholic
AT ST. PATRICK'S CHURCH,
of which the Rev. P. F. Allen is pastor, the
services were unusually solemn. The forty
hours' adoration commenced there on the pre
'ionu Sunday and terminated at the Solemn
ointlcal High Mass on the 17th, at which His
race, the Most Rev. Archbishop, officiated.
uring the whole of the forty hours thechurch
crowded with devout worshippers, and at
early Masses on St. Patrick's Day many
hundreds of the faithful received holy Com
munion. The altars of St. Patrick's deserve
special mention as having been arranged with
the most admirable taste by the ladies of the
Sanctuary Society. At 9 o'clock on the morn
ing of the 17th, the church being already
densely packed with people from all parts of
the city, Branch No. 1 arrived, qpd having
taken their places, His Grace commenced the
celebration of the Mass. He was assisted by
the Rev. Father Ansteedt as assistant priest,
Rev. T. J. Finn and Rev. P. Laporte as deacons
of honor, Rev. Father Viollier as deacon of
ass, and Rev. Father Glendon as sub deacon.
. J. G. Foote was master of ceremonies. The
anegyric of St. Patrick was delivered by the
v. J. Moynihan, Jr., and was a most elo
uent tribute to the great saint. The collection,
was previously announced, was for St.
's Orphan Boys' Asylum, and amounted
o the handsome sum of $170.
AT ST. MICHAEL'S CHURCH
igh Mass was celebrated by the pastor, Rev.
. Heslin, for the members of Branch No. 7, the
ranch assisting thereat. This action of the
ranch is worthy of special commendation and
hows the truly Catholic spirit of its members.
The High Mass at the
IURCH OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
as said for the mnembers of the New Orleans
atholic Total Abstinence Association and
he St. Aloysius Cadets, both of which bodies
ere present in great strength. Rev. D. Mc
iniry, 8. J., preached an eloquent sermon,
irecting his remarks particularly to the boys.
ter the Mass the Rev. H. Begley, 8. J., cele
rant, blessed the new banner of the Cadet
iety. This banner was made by the Sisters
f Mercy of St. Alphonsus'Convent. In front
a fine painting of St. Aloysius on a ground
f white silk, while the reverse, which is of
n silk, represents the Sacred Heart of
esus. The following young ladies and gen
omen were sponsors: Misses Rose Molony,
te Mallynn, Mary Mullane, Mary Carey, and
ters T. J. Egan, Jr., D. Mullane, N. J
urphy and E. Benjamin. The manner in
hich Dletsech's Mass was sung by the choir;
hioh Is under the direction of Mr. G. Collig
n, elioited the highest praises of the whole
SAINT ALPHONurB' CHURCH.
The day had not been eelebrated for years
this church as it was last Tsesday. No
ount of rain or mad could afect the num
or dampen the spirits of the devout wor"
ppers who thronged the churoh and streets
m 5 A. s. to 9 . m. The Novena had daily
w an unusuanal number of loving elients of
land's glorious Apostle, and on his feasmt all
e early Masses were attended as on Sundays,
hundreds of adults and youths received
ely Communion. After the 8 o'clook Mass, of
hioh Rev. J. Gleason was oelebrant, the Rev.
SA. Neithart, C. 88. R., ssiated by the Rev. J.
SDufy, C. 88. R., blessed the splendid new

. He first addressed the erowded an.
s, eulogiaiag their lively faith and active
evoion to SB. Patrick, and then emphasisng
beautiful relatiship la divine wrestee,
apostolie labors between St. Patrick and St.
Alphonsus, the two chief patrons of this
church and people. He then solemnly blessed"
the banner, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Green and
Mr. and Mrs. T. Brophy stepping forth as
sponsors. The banner was made by the
Sisters of Mercy of St. Alphonsus' Convent,
e and is an exquisite piece of workmanship. On
Its front, which is of red damask silk, is a life
I zsie painting of St. Alphonsus, and on the
t revrese, of green demask silk, a picture of
a Father Mathew. The banner is trimmed with
t red silk fringe, tassels, etc., and bears appro
I priate inscriptions. On the parade it was
adorned with a beautiful wreath, presented
by the Sisters of Mercy.
ST. JOSEPH'S CHIURCII
was crowded to repletion at High Mass, which
was celebrated by Rev. Father Leyden, C. M.
Branch No. 3 and the St. Joseph's Total Absti
e nence Society were present in full force. After
r the Mass, Father Leyden blessed the magnifl
cent banner of St. Joseph's T. A. Society, Mr.
John T. Gibbons and his spouse, and Mr. Ed
r ward Keenan and wife, being sponsors. The
banner is truly magnificent and gives indis
Spthble evidence of the skill and taste of the
Sisters of the Good Shepherd who made it. In a
r front of red silk is the figure of St. Joseph,
o with the name and date of organization of the
Society above and below. The reverse, of
white silk, has a well executed painting of the
Blessed Virgin and the infant Jesus around
which are the words :
" With Mary for ear Mother, what shall we fear 5"
Of course the custom so prevalent in this
city on the part of the fair daughters of
Erin, of choosing this day as the one on which
r- to present their favorite associations with
h tokens of their esteem, was observed as usual.
i. There was a great number of beautiful wreaths,
is flags, etc. presented to the several branches
y of the Hibernian association, but, not having

Branch No. 3, before attending Mass, march
Sed to the residence of Mr. Joseph H. Dunn,
Bolivar street, where a splendid wreath was
i presented by Miss Maggie Cahill, assisted by
Misses Long and Conners. In presenting it
Miss Cahill said :
Gentlemesn :-This glorious anniversary is
once'more greeted with jubilation, by every
true daughter of the "Green Isle," as well as
e by every true friend of the Mutual Aid and
Benevolent Association Branch No. 3. whose
charities, persevering industry and glorious
- achievements during the past years, have
n raised her so high in the esteem of our people.
This day will behold our praise-worthy as
soolation marshalling her host, whose every
i. member, forgetful of self, readily and joyfully
h ranges himself under the folds of the Banner
,t dedicated to our holy Patron, the great St.
y Shall it be said that a day, which brings a
i- thrill of joy to the heart of every true patriot
e of "Erin," should pass without a token of love
being added to the insignia with which this
our Benevolent Society. bedecks herself on
e this grand festival ? No, it shall not be.
Hence one of Erin's most humble maidens,
wishing to express her great regard and con
y sideration, as well as those of her numerous
if friends, for such a benevolent organization,
presents this humble wreath.
e Long may this garland be sweet to the eye,
Ma its verdure forever be green ;
y May lrove long enribch it with many a sigh,.
And unhappiness ne'er intervene.
Mr. Philip McCabe, President of the Branch,
receiving it answered :
Ladies -It is always in order for Irishmen to
feel proud and happy on St. Patrick's Day, but
e how greatly must these feelings be increased
when we are encouraged by the smiles of Irish
maidens and our banners are adorned by their
fair hands. In evidence of this pride and hap
pinees I accept from you, fair lady, in the name
of Branch 3, this token of your esteem and
regard, and I promise that the members of our
association will always remember with pride
the honors conferred on them by their lady
After Mass the Branch proceeded to the
sehool house where they were presented by
Miss Nellie Hart, daughter of Wm. Hart, Esq.,
in behalf of the school girls, with a beautiful
wreath. Miss IIart addressed the members as
Most Honorable Gentlemen, true sons of
Hibernia's glorious saint, we ask the privilege
of offering this simple wreath as a token of
our devotion to St. Patrick, the illustrious pa
tron of our loved country, and your most hon
Though so widely separated from Erin's
green Isle, that gem of the ocean, still our
hearts fondly cling to its sea girt shores, for
we claim it as the home of our Fathers.
Methinks our guardian angels smile approv
ingly on these little ones, gathered to-day in
the name of St. Patrick and under his special
auspices, that they may outwardly express the
devotion of .their young hearts to Ireland's
great apostle. For we feel that you are, as it
were, his faithful representatives on earth.
Mathe fair buds and flowers intermingled
in this wreath, while adorning your standard,
be typical of the virtues most pleasing to the
heart of St. Patrick.
The rose, ever the sweet emblem of that
heaventy charity so prominent a characteristic
of your noble society; the modest shamrook,
the mute witness of that living faith that ever
animates the soul of all true sons of Erin ;
while the quiet evergreen reminds us of that
untiring devotion in good works, the appanage 1
of your society, which we pray may long exist
to honor our loved St. Patrick and to scatter
blessings on many a sad exile from Erin's fair
shores. With sincere respect and regard we
remain, as ever, your little friends
Tuns PPerus or ST. JOSEPH'S SCHOOL.
Mr. McCabe here stepped forward and re.
ceived the wreath, saying :

lent Association-Braneh No. s,
Honored Gentlemen-On this fair and festive
day dedicated to Faith and Fatherland, when
the unfading green, embroidered with golden
shamrocks, is proudly borne aloft by the
stalwart arms of the patriotic Sons of the
Emerald Isle, permit me to add an humble
floral tribute to your banner, with the wish
that the flowers of Faith, Piety and Patriot
ism, the characteristic virtues of all true
hearted Irishmen, may ever flourish in your
Association and grace your banners, and that
the returns of Ireland's Day of Glory may ever
witness an increase of benevolence, friendship
and love among those who, in the far-off West,
so honorably and reverentially preserve and
celebrate the sacred customs, traditions and
memories of the Laud which gave them birth,
and in which they imbibed the pure Faith
emplanted there by the glorious Apostle whose
Festival shall to-day be celebrated in every
land enlightened by the setting sun and em
purpled by his departing beams.
All honor to the brave, faithful and generous
Sons of St. Patrick, whose hearts and purses
are ever open to contribute to every good
work. Long may the folds of the green and
gold wave proudly over them, and may every
anniversary of this glorious day find them true
to their country and their God.
The present was accepted by Mr. P. Elizardi,
Vice President, in a few appropriate remarks
was made the recipient of a very welcome but
unexpected compliment. It will be remem
bered that some time since their beautiful
banner was maliciously destroyed and their
flag stolen. To decorate the flag procured for
this occasion, Mrs. M. Wheelaban prepared a
beautiful wreath, and requested her husband
to invite the gentlemen of the Branch to their
house, not stating the object she had in view.
Upon the arrival of the members of the Branch,
in presenting the wreath, Master Eddie Whee
laban spoke as follows :
Gentleness of Branch No. 4.-As a child of
Mother Ireland will you be kind enough to
permit me to present you this wreath, woven
by fair hands to garland the green flag of
Erin, on this our own dear St. Patrick's Day
Gentlemen, you will excuse the brevity of
my speech. In tendering to you this little off
ering as a token of my love for Branch No. 4,
I give it with the hope that you will kindly
accept it, and thereby make me proud of being
an Irish boy and fond of his good Irish Mother.
To which one of the oficers of the Branch
improvised the following reply :
My Dear Lithle Friend.-In the name of the
Association I salute you, and thank you for
s your sentiments and your -gift-that gift so
gracefully bestowed (and so unexpectedly too)
by your good Irish mother at the hands of her
premonas ittle boy. See the beauty of her own
life how it has found expression in the selec
tion and arrangement of the flowers I May
you, dear child, win for yourself a chaplet still
brighter-still more chastely symbolio1 of a
beautiful Christian life-to deck the brow of
your later years !
We feel greatly honored to be thus signal
ized by a family so universally respected as
yours. We shall therefore the more sacredly
guard this token of your friendship; we shall
cherish it as we cherish the giver, and enshrine
it in the breasts of the Brotherhood where the
misguided hand of malice cannot be put to
tatter a single leaf nor make away with a grain
of its gold !
The-Irishman's piety and his patriotism go
hand in hand along with him from the cradle
to the grave. He can no more shake off these,
nor separate the one from the other, than the
Irish lady can shake off the beauty of her
countenance, or separate the gentleness of her
nature from the practice of the faith preached
by St. Patrick. Ireland's sons look upon wo
man as designed by the Almighty to occupy a
place side by side with the priest of His
Church in the mission of salvation. She is the
handmaid of the Lord and the glory of the
And now, Master Eddie, thanks again to
you ; and thanks again to your most excellent
mother-with hearts like hers to back us and
hands like hers to decorate us, we go forth
with prouder bearing-with souls doubly
blessed and cheered we go forth to celebrate
LAYING OF THE CORNER STONE OF ST PAT.
The most important and significant cvent of
the day was the laying of the corner stone of
St. Patrick's Hall, corner Lafayette and Camp
Immediately after High Mass at St. Patrick's
church, His Grace, the Most Rev. Archbishop,
preceded by all the principal clergymen of
the city, proceeded from the church to the
lswer end of the site on which the aill is to
be built where a platform had been erected
for the occasion. On either side of His
Grace's path, as he walked along, were the
members of the several Total Abstinence
Societies and of three of the Branches of the
Hibernian Association. The sidewalks, balco
nies and streets were literally crowded with
people who had been drawn thither by the
announcement of the auspicious event. When
His Grace had taken his seat and the enthusi
asm of the multitude had been succeeded, by
that silence which denotes anxious expectation
of some event, Rev. T. J. Smith, C. M., pastor
of St. Joseph's church, came forward, and, in a
clear voice which was heard a hundred yards
off, stated that he had been requested to say a
few words to this grand assemblage of his
oountrymen and fellow citizens. He considered
this one of the greatest days in the history of
New Orleans, as it proved that either we were
fast recovering from the effects of the troables
of the past few years, or that we had men
among usoffar more than ordinary zeal and en
ergy; indeed, considering the immensity of the
undertaking, be thought it evidence of both
these facts. After pointing out in how many
ways the Hall would be benefiaial to the city,
and particularly to its Catholic citizens, he
paid a glowing tribute to the generosity and
patriotism of that " galaxy of noble Irishmen,"
who had undertaken the work. He hoped,
however, that they would devise some means
of enabling all traue-hearted Irishmen and Ca
tholics to share in the glory of building the
Hall, because he knew that each of us would
like it feel, and would like to have his child
ren know, thathe had a proprietary interest in
it. Father Smith was cheered throughoat hisl
addres, his last remarks particularly evoking
loead snd cntineou ehuering.
Tse ea r shoe was the blemed sesediag
Grace, and was put in its place. It bears the
following inscription :

March 17, 1874.
P. Irwin, President.
John Henderson, Vice President.
W. J. Castell, Secretary.
James Freret, Architect.
James Hagan, Buperinten dent.
His Grace then returned to St. Patrick's
church, bestowing his blessing upon the
kneeling multitudes as he passed, and the
Rev. Clergy dispersed to their carriages to
participate in the parade at the head of their
respective parochial organizations.
Branch No. 9. was specially honored, receiv
ing a splendid flag from Mrs R. McGowan,
wife of its President and magnificent wreathe
from Miss M. Cally and Mrs. M. Swords.
was consumed in ways as different as the char
acters of the participants in the celebration of
the day. At St. Joseph's Church the Rev. T.
J. Smith C. M. delivered an address before the
Total Abstinence Society. In St. Stephen's
the Rev. Father Abbot C. M. lectured to a
large audience, Branch No. 9. being in attend
ance. In St. Alphonsus Church Rev. B. A.
Neithart C. SS. R. preached to a congregation
so large that not a spare place could be found
in pews, aisles, or gallaries: Many of the
Branches gave dinners which were duly honored
by the members and numerous invited guests,
all having fasted from early morn.
The only one of these entertainments of
which we are in a position to give any account
was that given by the
ST. PATRICK'S CLUB
at Morean's. His Grace, Archbishop Perche,
was present, as were also a number of the
clergy, especially of those who had taken
most interest in the celebration of the
day. Mr. Henderson, Vice President of the
club, presided with an energy that did not
permit of much lost time, and with a hospital
ity that could not be confined teo a short session.
We can testify to the fact that each and every
individual present seemed to enjoy the occa
sion thoroughly and heartily.
His Grace kindly testified his Interest in the
club by a few encouraging remarks, and he
was followed in the course of the evening by
Rev. Fathers Anstaedt, J. Moynihan, Smith,
Kenny, Allen, oiKiniry and Foote, is response
to various toasts which called them out. J.
M. G. Parker, Esq., took the occasion for trans.
ferring to Rev. Father J. Moynihan, with some
very humorous remarks, an immense bouquet
which a young lady had bestowed upon him by
mistake for that Rev. gentleman, during the
Mr. Parker also offered the following toast,
preluding it with a neat speech expressing his
warm attachment for his numerous Irish
"The naturalized and the unnaturalized
Irishman: The former by his industry, perse
verance and sagacity, has exchanged his ' car
pet bag' for school houses, churches, commer
cial and banking houses, and positions of honor
and trust in the land of his adoption. Ths
latter, approaching the shores of our domain
(America) is always welcome, ' the more the
merrier' and better, we will receive them with
outstretched arms and joyful hearts."
Mr. Irwin was the recipient of several very
handsome compliments directed to his public
spirited and liberal support of every good and
deserving enterprise. Mr. Gilmore, Mr. Mc
Phelin, Mr. Thomas Smith, Mr. Geo. Martin,
and other gentlemen, entertained the company
with remarks which we should be glad to re
produce, but for which we are utterly unable
to find room.
