The St. Charles hotel, New Orleans, was destroyed by fire the other night The old St. Charles hotel was completed in 1838, the work of construction beginning in 1835. The cost of the building was .60.0.), and the ground $100.003. It was a magnificent structure, and was destroyed by fire in 1851. Rebuilding of the hotel Was begun at once At the time it attracted general attention, because of the fact that it was the finest hotel in the World, and the first great hotel of the United States. The hotel comfortably accommoda ted between ti00and 700 guests. The historic building was closely associated with the his tory of Louisiana and New Orleans. In "Parlor P" Jefferson ,)avis and the leading southern politicians met and agreed upon the course to be pursued at the Charleston convention of 1860, and since then the fate of hundreds of aspirants for public honors was sealed in these histofid precints. Since the war the St. Charles was the central point of the very stormy politics of Louisiana. In its rotunda democrats, re publicans and members of every politicalparty have met to exchange views and to discuss the affairs of the state and nation. Parlor P alone made for itself a national reputation. It was occupied by no less than six congressional investigation committees, trying to understand the chaotic condition of affairs which at that time became known over the country as "The Louisiana Question," but it is not in political history alone that parlor "P" was famous. Count less other associations, to discuss great questions of trade and com merce, were held there-railroad meetings to build new railroads and meetings of ladies to solve great problems of balls and dress. There, too, came Rex when a visitor to New Orleans, piarlor "P" being his recognized official headquarters for his short reign of two days during the carnival Mr. Hildreth, one of the proprietors at the com mencement of the war, was a relative lf Gen. Ben Butler's wife, whose maiden name was Hildreth. When Butler took charge of the city in IF62, Mr. Hildreth refused to receive I Butler in the hotel, and a riot was narrowly prevented in consequence. The doors were thrown open to the returning ex-confederates at the close of the war, and there they were welcomed "wi tnout money and without price." Sewer Building in New Orleans. New Orleans is the only city in the J nited States without a sewer system. Some time ago the council granted a private company, which is well backed with capital, the privilege to establish a sewer system on the Waring plan, the one adopted in Memphis, Tenn., and to charge householders for the removal of sewerage. Ground was broken in the neighborhood of the old parish prison, which has been purchased by the sewerage company. The main sewer will run along Orleans street. When this was dug it produced an unexpected result. The digging of the sewer caused the land in the neighborhood to sink, cracking the Treme market and threat aning to bring it down, and caused a settling in I number of neighboring houses, so as to crack the roof and plastering, pull the doors out of plumb, and cause a great deal of alarm among the inhabitants. This result is at tributed to the digging of the sewer, which had squeezed the water out of the surrounding land as though from a sponge, causing it to sink, The engineer decided that it was not due to ary quicksand, and that the difficulty could be 3 'viated by deep piling and strong bracing. In tihe meanwhile, however, the beginning of the sewerage work to which New Orleans has looked so long has created apprehension among the people. The Land Office. Says the New Orleans Picayune: Re ceiver Chas. P. Johnston and Register Brumby of the land office have for warded their report of the April business of the land office to the interior department at Washington. The report shows that 100 homestead entries were passed, embracing 11,812 acres. The office passed 48 final homestead proofs, embracing 6,325 acres. It also passed 35 cash entries. Mr. Johnson says that the business of April was more exten sive than that of any recent month. Gleanings. Congressman Wilson, chairman of the house committee on ways and means, reached Baton Rouge the other day. He dined at the governor's man. sion and was given a public reception at the statehouse. After devoting a day to seeing the sights of Baton Rouge and the state institutions lo cated there, he left for New Orleans. Nash Ogden, son of W. W. Ogden, president of the Fifth levee district, was drowned near Waterproof, Tensas parish. The young man drove into deep water to allow his horse to drink, and in trying to save himself became entangled in the harness. His father and Frank Kempe endeavored to save him and nearly lost their own lives. The state fair grounds at Baton Rouge were sold recently at sheriff's sale and were bought in by the Bank of Baton Rouge for $10,000. The bank purchased merely to secure a mortgage held on the property, and offers to sell for the amount of its bid to any asto ciation of persons who may desire to continue the enterprise. The musical chime of bells ordered from Cincinnati by the rector, E. J. liavaqueric, of St. John the Baptist church, at Edgard, St. John Bap tist parish, have been received.

"Hood's Sarsaparilla has done me a great deal of good. I have been a sufferer from Sick Headache and Neuralgia nearly all my life.
