The following news from Bayou Lafourche comes to ns on reliable authority: Rev. Fa ther Leeaichere, Pastor at Paincourtville, has bad the fever and is now convalescing; Rev. Father Boucher, Pastor of Lafourche, is ncw ill, bnt at last accounts was improving: Very Rev. C. M. Menard, Pastor of Thibodaux is recovering, and Rev.

Father Lamy, C SS.R. cf St. Alphonsnu Church, who has been working s heroically among the people along the Jackson railroad aine the epidemic commenced, in a recent let ter from Holly Springs says: "There are now comparatively few new cases ofyellow fever; yet I still get about half a dozen sich calls from Catholios every day. All the Sisters, both at the Hospital and at tae Bethlehem Academy have taken the fever .in suoccession. The last one, Sister Laurentia, after working hard and nursing all the rest, was stricken down last Snoday. So far five of these noble heroines of charity, namely, Siatere Stanisle', Stella, Margaret, Corintha and .c toria have g .ne to [leaven during this epide mic." From a very reliable ecorce we hare been informed of two sad events wbicb transpired in Mandeville during the past week. A child of one of the parishioners ut tbe Rev. Father M. Kratz, pastor of the church in that town, died of yellow fever, and the corpse remained for three days unboried. A know ledge of this fact reached the above-named priest while in the discharge of his spiritual duties. Immediately he, with the aessanre of an acolyte, made a coffin, dog a grave and deposited therein the body of the child. While engaged in this moot charitable work a severe rain fell, comptetely drenching the good priest and his faithful assistant. Tnat same night the priest was taken ill. It proved to Ibe a genuine case of yellow fever from which he never recovered. lIe died as many priests and heroes die-in the survice of his God and fellow-man. Reivescat in pace. A meddlesome old woman was sneering at a young mother's awkwardness with her infant, and said, " 1 declare, a woman never ought to have a baby unless she knows how to hold it."

Troly the march of empire seems to be as persistently westward now as it has ever been throughout the history of socie ty. Commencing with Aseyria and Persia, civilization and empire slowly progressed to Egypt and Greece, to Italy, France and England. Or, taking history as exemplified in imperial cities, we find the chain of pro gress in Babylon, Cairo, Athece, Rome, Paris, London. Let us esay that its next link will be New Orleans. England holds now the sceptre of mann factures and commerce, but she holds it with a very uncertain tenure. The young giant of the West has been boldly claim ing its possession, and has almost wrested it from her grasp already, though as yet in his childhood comparatively. Glad stone and others of the greatest English stateamee and financiers admit as a fore gone conclusion the coming supremaey of the United States, in both manafactures and commerce. The genius of mechani cal inventions, the activity of commercial enterprise, the ceaseless energy of indomit able will, are all preeminently on this side the Atlantic. But even if there were eqnality in these respects between Europe and America, ex isting circumstances would seem tobe com bining in such a way as to place the former contestant at a disadvantage. Europe is a hot bed of jealousies aLd animosities; America appears destined to afford the first instance of permanent combination based on enlightened mutual forbearance. While the ablest energies of Germany, Russia, England, France, Austria and Italy are bent to the task of firming temporary combinations to bent ti; some and rain others, in this country the rivalries of Statesmen are exhausted in framing pol icies which shall best subserve general in terests. Thus we fiid England and Russia on the verge of a great war for the mastery of India. The mere struggle to keep possee sion will place England at a vast disadvan tage in her commercial rivalry with this country, while the loss of India would terminate the contest on her part very summarily and for ever. Germany is so anxious to destroy British supremacy that she is said to be making the most friendly overtures to France, in order to secure the neutrality of that power. If that effort succeeds England is lost, for France alone can save her against the combined hostility of Riussia and Germany. But, after all, the loss or India to the Briti eh crown is only a question of time, and not much time either, if this country continues to advance in power and impor tance with the rapid strides of its past history. We will soon control the iron and cotton manufactures of the world and hold its commerce captive under our flag. The decay that will then necessarily sap the life of all British home prosperity most naturally place her in the same category as Spain and Portugal-nations of faded maguificence and dismembered empire. When, therefore, progress shall have definitely transferred its banner of pre eminence to this side of the ocean where will it be planted 1 Manifest destiny points to New Orleans as the next and perhaps the last great metropolis of human grandeur and power. The Gulf of Mexico will perhaps be the Mediterranean of latter history, and the port of the Mississippi must be its Metro polis. The Mississeeippi Valley is North America, and it will deal with the World through New Orleans, prostrate as she now is in the dust and ashes of affltiction. The Catholic Relief Association. We are much pleased to hear that during the short time this organization has been in operation it has received nearly twenty five thouaand dollars and distributed near ly twenty thousand. Its mode of distribution is principally through agencies which it found already established, such as the Clergy, the Aseylums, the Society of St. Vincent of Paul and great numbers of other association,. Its selection of these is er. tirely indcpindent of any other coneder ation than tout of the bes: and prompttet cl.ance: of pyical relief.

A City of Contrasts. a There is certainly no other city in the Ueit-d a St stes, and probably no other in the world, which presents each strongly marked contrastse of life and incidents as New Orleans-Qtjeen City of the South. A few months ago, and I people from every part of the.Republic were Hocking here by tbonusands. Not only were hotels and boarding-houses full of guests, but every private re s:dence as well was open to distant friends and relatives. It was the month of the Carnival, and New Orleans was a city of joy and festivity, of pomp and plea sare, of delight and weird enchabntment. Her days were but a series of changing yet ever new enjoyment; her nights were scenes of light and love and Ilnnry. Her streets were thronged by pleasureseekers, her wharves re splendent with the Hags of many nations, while her natural charms of birds and fruits and flowers added to the gorgeous revel pro duced by Act, made the place as bright and beautifol as the fabled cities of ancient east ern days. Only six months pass away, and what a change! Not only do thonsands of her own people desert her: but there is not a atranger within her gate except the few devoted priests and physicians who hale cast their lot with hers. Her public houses are unocecupied, while almost every private residence bears marks of grief or desolation. Her days are calm with a strange calmness, and her nights are quiet 1 with a hush of fear and expectancy. Her 1 streets ro echo to the measured sound of heavy r astep or slowly rolling vehicles, as the dead I are being carried away fro:n among the living. e The very air seeme no longer genial, while her e empty wharves and silent stores give testi- t mony of the unen'ployed and snffering poor. t A few months ago and generous friends came from abroad to spend their wealth like water here in our midst. Bit then it was to purchase erj )yment or to procure luxuries or gratify vanity and pridt. Now another stream of wealth is pouring in from the same generous hearts; but it comes to feed the pocr, to nurse the sick, to bury the dead, to asseeist the living The Howard Association is the antithesis of the Mystic Krewe of Comas. Each springs into existence in a season peculiarly its own; both born of noblest impulses and actuated by the purest love of human kind. One comes to give pleasure, the other to take away pain. One dispenses j >y and mirth; the other light ens care and s>othee the pangs of grief. One is the channel of a people's smiles; the other, of a people's tears. One is the bright persona tion of a city's joy; the other, of a city's woe. One springs from the brain of fancy; the b other from the heart of sympathy and love. One may be called tVe offspring of the gods; the other is an angel sent by heaven. But the c work of each illustrates most forcibly the con traste of which we speak. t Who tiat knew New Orleans as the city of t the carnival would ever have dreamed of her becoming the city of sorrow and death! Who I that counted her maskers on last March would t have thought they could be today outnum- a bered by her graves ! Who that watched her t regal procession of gorgeous chariots on last Shrove Tuesday night, could have realized that there would be a longer one of hearses only a few months later! And let us also dwell for a moment upon the t difference in tie ocnpation of our people-of t our young men and women in particular- I during the seasons that are in senoh contrast to t one another. Ther the fancy dress, the paint- , ed mask and the vouptouns dance were themes for every tongue and objects of interest to every mind. Now tite winding sheet, the pal- i lid corpse and the sad funeral service, furnish food for thought and prayer. Then the bright eat and loveliest of our youth epent their nights within the ballroom, whirling through the t mazes of the dance; now they are seen beside t the bedside of the sick and dying, or going, with unwearied feet, from one scene of glad-4 ness to another, ministering help and comfort and carrying food to the poor and suffering. Then our men were bent on acquiring wealth, 1 and our women wrapped up in dreams of folly ; now these have become humble imita tors of te Sisters of Mercy, and those are fol lowing in the footsteps of the great English I philanthropist, Howard. The watches of the night, the occupations of I the day, how they have changed I How is the e city altered, and yet how fair she is in her robes of mourning and beneath her pall of t grief! How beautiful is the charity, heaven inspired, which animates her heart; and If, in the past, she was vain and proud and foolish, I now in her present atonement she is grand and patient and heroic. Bat if New Orleans is thus selected by Divine Wi lon as a spectacle to the world, at one t.me, of the very Leight of folly, and at an other of the very depth of sorrow, is it not for sime salatary purpose, for "wisdom is j stified by all her ch Idreu 1' Those days of the past, t :Cse soasuns of folly, those nighs tf dissipation, were they pleasing to Almighty God? Those scenee of revelry aid extravagance, those displays of beathen luxury and pride, were they always befitting the dignity of a Christian people? Those wild excesses of the night, encroaching upon the dutnie of the day, nay, polluting with their touch the hours of divine praise, were they not cffenaive to the eyes of Heaven's court ? How of:en the devotee of folly left the ballroom only in time to hear the first Mass on days appointed by the Church for the worship of God, and then spent the remainder of the holy day in listless etnpor or enervating slomber i ' While trying to boild up our cit;'s prosperi ty by pagan revels and pagan extravagance, did not people forget that they were bidden to "seek zrst the kingdom of God and all things else will be added unto you 1" If these things be as supposed, then we need no longer wonder at the am ctions and trials sent tO purify os and sareugtben our *faith. F If we, as a Ccristian people, will set our b affections too persistently upon vain and sin I fel pleasure, then it is not surprising that we am made to do penance Pleasurel was the cry of the pagan world. "Penance! Penance!" was the only word left by our Lady of Loordes to a Christian world, when asked by Bernadette what messge ashe Shad fir the peope P!easure! If New Orleans seeks it with too rnuch avidity, seeks it to the exclusion of b!g'ier and nobler thins, seeks it as a means of temporal agrand z."ment and world-wide t fame, tfen must we expect to be froed into a Srecognition of that iruer word by which her Sfollies may be atoned for and her sine for goeen. Pleasure and Penance ! This is the contrasat we have marked in our city-and having been the very centre of the one, let co hope that as the dwelling place of the other, she may learn a lesson from the past and hbe happier and wiser in the future. NET PUBLICATIONS. Bistory of The Middle Agre. Adapted from the French of Rev. P. F. Gazean, S J. New Yorh: Catholic Publication Society. We think this history of the Middle Ages is, in every sway, a suitable and most desirable c:ess book for our Catholic schools. History has been for so many years snobh a weapon against truth and such a falsifier of the Church, that we can not but welcome any work which will be candid, unprejudiced and just in its dealings with whet the world has been pleased to call the dark ages. The style of the work before as is calm and impartial, there are no bareti of enthusiasm over heroes and heroic deeds, but the narrative of facts goes on with all the asimplicity of t:nth and all the dignity of knowledge. It is well divided into abort sections for class lessons, and the review ques tions furnish a satisfactory summary of all that has been previoeusly studied. Bistory of the United Statea of America By JAn it G. Hlassard. New York: Catholic Publi cation Society. The introduction to this excellent work is written by R'ght trev. J. L. Spalding, the learned Bishop of Peoria, and is in itself a treat to all intelligent minds-and one of its een tences is so full of thought that we quote it for our readers. Speaking of the growth and in tluence of the Catholic Church in this country and of its bearing upon the future destiny of our republic, the eloquent writer says: 'For my own part. I believe that he who will do most to form the character of the Catholic youth of America, will also have done most to mould the future of the American peo ple." And then follows a commendation of this fine work of Mr. Hassard, during which Bishop Spalding says: "I know of no other school history of the United States which is distin guished by so many excellences." To sueach a recommendation, there is no need of adding a single word. The "get up" of the book is very tasteful, the illustrations numerous and beast:fnl, the type clear and large, the maps interesting and explicit, and the binding etrong and attractive. Indeed, the emblems on the covers of the brok, are so suitable and suggeerive that a student learns a timely lesson every time he takes it in his hand. '"In the good time coming," when our Pablic Schools shall be organized and administered so as to be acceptable to our Catholic youth, this work will bh fannd stisfactury to all impar tial minds, and conducive to the best develop ment of our Aenrissn etudente. We have however to add one word of fault finding and this we do b'cause tie is no ordinary work and should therefore be perfect even in its least details. On pages 334, i33, the author gives an ac count of the battle between the Monitor and Virginia which is not correct, and the abshort sentence referring t. the last vessel : "She nerer appeared again," is in direct opposition to the truth. We have so often ventilated the facts regarding this .naval engagement that we are vexed to see all our Northern writers holding on to the erroneous statement and calling that history which is a fiation of Northern minds. The Merrimac or Virginia, as she should pro perly be called in history, was not disabled by the Monitor. The ram or prow of the Virginia was slightly irjared the day before by being ran into the Cumberland; but in the fight with the Monitor, it was her fire that disabled Lieu tenant Worden and this accident to the com mander of the "cheese box," practically put an end to the contest. (See Swinton.) B it the Virginia did appear again, and even captured several sohooners from under the very gnuns of Fortress Monroe. Again our author says on page 352: "The two ships (Alabama and Kearsage) were fairly matched, but Capt. Winslow had the better gunners and after an action of about an hour the Alabama was sunk.'" Fairly matched. If one of two duellists should secretly slip on a coat of mail under his cit'zon's clothes, and thos fight and win the day, it would surely not be said that the two antagonists were fairly tmsatched.' The Kearsage did this, and we protest against this polite way of covering up all Northren slips of trnth and honor because, for sooth, one of the parties belongs to a Lost Caose! Elemcnti of Inltell'ciual Philosophy. By Rev. J. DsConcrlio. New York: D. & J. Sadlier. This book is said to be the best work of the kind written in English-i e. not in Latin. It treats of Logic, Ontology and Anthropology, and is written in a style so lucid and in words i so clear that the author claims that it can be a studied and in great part understood without Sa teacher by any young man of parts. In regard to the matter Father DeConcilio i follows the teachings of St. Thomas, and clings throughout his work to "that grand philosophy - created by geniuses as great as Plato or Aris totle, and guided by the truth of God which these beathen geninsees had not." We believe the writings of Father De Con cilio are generally well received by our Catho lic theologians; but we would like very much I to see some prcper imp' iialutr on his pages be r fore we adopt all his views or recommend all his work. Lires s' Irisi, Maltyrs asit Coefessore. By Myles O'tially, B. A., LL. I). New York: James a Sheehy. This work is all of Myles O Beilly's, with many additions, including a history of the penal law. by Rev. Richard I; ennsn, A. M; so that all who have read the beautiful work of O'Reilly, entitled "Irish Martyre and Con feseors," will find in this second volume addi tional records of heroism and martyrdom, with I all of the valuable memoirs contained in the tirst. On the top c-ver we find the design of a golden monument, on which are inscribed the names of those Irish heroes and martyra who lived and died in the cause of God and their country. The idea is a beautiful one, and we hope some day a golden pillar may indeed be raised on Irish soil, all shining with the names of the great men who were "men of renown and fathers in their generation ;" but we think this beautiful book cf O'Reiilly and Father Brennan is itsilf a glorious moncmaitt setand ing not clone upon a few feet of Irish sod, but shedding its light wherever there is an Irish heart to prize it or an Irish home to enshrine it. The pagans of St. Patrick's day received the faith with love and veneration, so that no martyr's blood was shed by barbarian hand nor martyr's heart broken by barbarian perse cotion, bat in the civilized days (f Qoeen Elizabeth and later of Cromwell, Irish blood was poured out like rain upon the soil, and the names of Irish martyrs gathered thick and fast upon the pages of the sixteenth and seven teenth centuries. Their names-at least a large number anm ber of them-are recorded in this book, and their heroic lives are given us as examples worthy of perpetual remembrance. We wish we could give the record of Very Rev. Pster O'Higgins' martyrdom during the reign of Charles I, How he was accused of sedition, treason, etc., and yet was offered a pardon and large gifts if he would but re nounce his faith. How with this document in his hand he stood on the first step of the gal lows, and nobly proved that it was only the Catholic religion that in him was condemned to death, and then freely rejecting the pro poral and throwing tie paper to a friend in the crowd, went to meet his doom. The names upon the cover are Brady, Creagh, Lynch, Moriarty, O'Brien, O'Harley, O'Neil, O'Reilly, Plunket, Sheohy and Walsh, but within the pages are a host of glorioeus names which, dear to every Catholic heart, onght to be doubly so to every Irish heart. TO THE CHARBITABLE. TnE SISTERS OF CHARITY. who have hobarge of the Camp Street Female Orphan Asylum are in distress. They are not only cramped for means to meet the increased demands upon them caused by the epidemic, but are dependent for their dai ly food on the credit given them by the ever indulgent and charitable Margaret Haughery, and by the kind hearted butcher. Under these circumstances and deprived of several sources of revenueno from which they are usually enabled to meet a portion of their necessary expenses, they are compelled to ap peal to the charity of the public and especially to the old friends of the Asylum to raise for them by aubscription or otherwise, the means to continue their useful and merciful labors. They have now 130 inmates who are depen dent upon them for food, clothing, medicines and other necessaries. No less than 0tO of these orphans have been attacked bythe epidemic, only one of whom has fallen a victim to the disease. All of the others are either conval gent or have a fair prospect of recovery. This remarkable sucnocess meost be attributed, under the Divine Mercy, to the skill of Dr. Choppin, their medical ad viser, and the careful and intelligent nursing of the Sisters. Nothing more is needed to show the effioacy and value of their services. It most not be overlooked, moreover, that this Asylum is the Molther House of the St. Vin cent's Infant Asylum and the St. Elizabeth House of Industry, each of whihob is conducted independently of the others, but acts with them to a common end. The infants are received at the St. Vincent's and remain there until about seven years of age, when they are transferred to the Camp Street Asylum. They here receive a sound primary educa tion and not only religions culture, but a oare fol training in the domestic virtnes calculated to prepare them for a life of virtue and useful ness. At about fourteen years of age they are transferred to the St. Elizabeth House of In dustry where they are taught suanitable trades, or otherwise fitted to earn an honorable liv ing. In pursunance of these bonign purposes the Camp Street Orphan Asylum has already re ceived TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY children from the St. Vincent's Asylum. It has also received eIlTY SEVEN children from the Charity Hospital. This makes a total of THREE HUNDRED AND SEVEN helpless orphans whom it has saved from the material and moral evils of destitltion. A calculation of the ontlays of the institu tion and the values expended on the orphans, indicates that the cost of supporting it is about 30c per capita per diem. ISO beneficiaries at 1.'3 gives $15 per diem or $l10425 per annum. It is evident from this that after deducting a net income of about $2,000 from St. Theresa's Chnroh, and a some what larger sum from individnal charity, sev eral thousand dollars must be raised annually to seastain the inetitution. At present the Asylum is not only suffering from a serious falling of in its usual income, but has a gloomy prospecl'for the approach ing Winter. It most not be overlooked that a very small proportion cf the orphans in this Institution are from the First District and an insignificant number from the Church Parish in which it is located. It represents lie entire oity and the charity of the whole can he justly invoked to aid i::n its present exigencies. They can get wine for two cents a bottle in Cyprus, but they can't get the two cents. DONATIONYS BRCEIVED.
