The. Palmetto Club..
: This organization iiuiuguratej under
the patronage of a number of prominent
citizens of Northern cities, for lh ex
clusive entertainment of tourists and
visitors, is now formally opened, having
leen incorporated under the general in
corwration laws of the State. ;
The domicile of the club, in the
spacious anfj convenient Lorrilard man
sion, on St. George street, lias been
handsomely and in fact luxuriously
fitted up for the purpose, a number of
rare pictures and rich hangings belong
ing to the club, haying been added to
the already rich furnishings of the
house. All the leading magazines and
newspapers of the day (including, of
course, The Daily News), are supplied
for the use of members, and the culinary
department, under.the management of
George Brown, formerly the well-known
steward of the Pennsylvania Club, at
Long Branch, is organized to provide
anything in the shape of eatables or
drinkables that may be called for, and of
a quality not excelled anywhere.
The manager, Mr. D. McClinch, is too
well known to need mention, and asso
ciated with him is Mr. Jos. Col ton,
known everywhere as the owner of A If.
Estelle, Elizabeth, and other noted run
ning horses.
The Cathedral Tair.
At the fair last night only a portion of
the many aluable and desirable articles
unsold were raffled. A beautiful Brus
sels lace jet front was won by Miss
Annie Reyes.' Miss Nilla Oliveros was
the happy winner of a gorgeous wax
doll, while the elaborate doll's trousseau
liecame the property of Miss Kate An
drews. The gentleman's smoking table,
twldly enough passed into the possession
of Miss Eusehia Masters. A very hand
some cushion was won by Miss Annie
Lopez.
To-night will be the last night of the
fair, and the voting will be concluded
for the most popular young lady and
gentleman.
The ladies are well pleased with their I
success so far, their only regret lieiug
that owing to delays in preparing the
building, the fair had to Vie prolonged
into Lent.

Little Use for Clock Repairs.
New Orleans Times-Democrat.
The old clock of St. Quentin's, in
Mayence, ins got oat of order, and is
being repaired, for the first time, in 500
years, it has struck the hoar without
fail for five centuries, and it is expected
that when it has been fixed np a little,
it will keep perfectly accurate time for
fiv centuries more. The meduwal arti
ficers knew their work and they did it.

reuort on cotton futures aavs: "The market
continued within very narrow channels, and
free from feature either suggestive or inter
esting. Some few tun ing orders came in to
day from the Sonth, and these, in conjunction
with slightly better Liverpool accounts, raised
the line of value a trifle and atforded the ap
pearance of steadiness, but there was no really
supporting demand, and before the close rates
were back to about last evening's basis, with
the toue barely steady. Liverpool was a tritle
lietter. but hardly stimulating, and receipts at
one or two points were rather in excess of the
calculation. No evidences of special manipu
lation on the part of large operators was sug
gested." New York, February 15. Cotton Net re

but values suffered a sharp decline. Wheat de
clined 1 cent before nooc, and weakness was
shared in by both corn and oats. The sharp
decline was not attributed altogetner to any
one cause. The market has been heavy in
spite of all attempts to rally it, and very many
oiierators, who were naturally bulls, believed

there was much profit in buying. But tho
chief causes of the weakness were undoubt

The Pr.per lutcb Dance.
Tlie Nautch girls arranged themselves
into a half circle, their t-arlet costumes
forming a bright crescent terminating at
either end in a mass of sjiectators, whose
half naked lxxhes, varying m color from
pale olive to mahogany, were arrayed in
costume scarcely less showy than the
dancers'. The chaperono torn touts an
appropriate Nautch accompaniment on a
drum with liis fingers and four pretty
girls advance from tho half circle and,
favoring me with a quartet of killing
smiles and a quartet of coquettish glances
from their bright, dark eyes, they com
mence to dance. An idea seems to pre
vail in Occidental minds that the Indian
Nautch dance is a very naughty thing,
but nothing is further from the truth.
Of course, it can bo.iuade naughty, and,
no doubt, of ten is, but then so can many
another form of innocent amusement.
Tlie proiier Nautch dance is a decorous
and artistic performance when properly
danced; the graceful motions and elegant
proportions of the human form, as re
vealed by lithe and graceful dancers, aru
to be viewed with au eye purely artistic
and critical as a Venus or oilier produc
tion of the sculptor's studio. Only the
Britit.h matron would consider a Nautch
dance in any degree indecorous. The
foiir dancers take the hem of their rexl
garment between the thumb and finger
of tlie right hand, spreading its ample
folds into the figure of an open fan by
bringing the outstretched arm almost on
a level to the shoulder. A mantle of
transparent muslin, fringed with silver
spangles, is worn about the head and
shoulders in the same indescribably grace
ful maimer as the mantilla of the Span
ish senorita. Raising a portion of this
aloft in the left hand and keeping the fan
intact with the right, the dancers twirl
around and change position with each
other, their supple figures meanwhile as
suming a variety of graceful motions and
poKtures from tim to time. Now they
imitate the spiral movements of a serpent
climbing around and upward ou an ira
aginary pole; again they assume a charm
ing posture, their dusky countenances
half hidden in seeming coquetry behind
the mu-sliu mantle, the larjro red fan
waved gentlv to and fro, the feet tin mov
ing, bnt the undulating motions of the
body and the tremor of the limbs sufficing
to jinglo the tiny ankle bells. India Cor,

The other night, at th concert of the
Yale Glee club, in New Haven, after tlie)
first number ou the programme, the f rc-sh-man
class gave the audience to under
stand that it was in existence. First
there came a shower of white and bhio
cards from tlie galleries bearing the chits
numerals ""91. Then a curtain carna
down from the flies, and it lie n blue
silk banner on which was ""CI." Then
a white dove flew across from the gallery
and perched above tlie stage, and it bore
fastened to its neck a card on hi h was
'91." Another dove followed, and then
several more, ail labelled -"01."' Then
the sophomores got in their work. They
tore down tlie banner, caught the doves
and subdued the freshmen, and the con
cert proceeded. There was a period cf
forty minutes between the first and second
numbers on tlie programme. v- oris
