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.

embracing 6,325 acres. It also passed
35 cash entries. Mr. Johnson says that
the business of April was more exten
