New-Orleans Beer. —We had gone
to New Orleans to reside. My husoand
was a great lover of beer ; and he made
his regular trips, through foul or fair
weather, every evening, somewhere be*,
tween tea and bedtime, to a bier-haus
on Conti street. ' The beer brewed there
was nectar , absolutely (he would say)
superior to any other he had ever tasted,
and so very superior to that of any
other establishment in all New Orleans,
he wondered why people ever went to
any other bier-haus than Qurte’s. Its
peculiar nutty flavor, its rich, creamy
foam, could not be equalled by any
other bier-breaver. Gurth was a king.—
Eve rybody, he said, praised it; its fame
or /aem , was literally in everybody’
One evening I said to him, “You don’t
go for your beer.” I happen to be look
ing him in the face while speaking. He
suddenly turned away pale, and
showed unmistakable signs of being
sick. The attack was so violent and so
sudden, that I was not a little alarmed.
As soon as he conld speak, he begged
for peppermint, camphor—anything.—
€>n my expressing wonder at the cause
of the attack, he turned pal£ again, and
commenced retching. I suggested cam
phor again. No—it's no use; he
couldn't take anything on his stomach.
Well, peppermint—just a little ? No
no use to try. I have it! “Let me send
for some bee”—
“No, madam! I tell you no/” he
thundered forth in tones that made the
glass rattle. Good heaven#thought I,
what can ail my poor husband ? I said
nothing more, but got him to bed as soon
as possible. He fell asleep almost im
mediately from sheer exhaustion.
The next morning his first words were,
“Susie, please-don’t talk to me about my
sickness last night—don’t mention*the
subject at all; and, above alj, never ask
me what made me sick.” Os course I
said I wouldn’t; but I couldn’t help feel
ing curious to know what it all meant.
That evening, about beer-tim g, he vol
unteered the reraaik that he thought
beer disagreed with him, and that "he
would quit the use of it. “Yes, dear,” I
answered with as serious face as I could
assume, backing toward the door, look
ing him steadily in the face, and, as I
got through the door, continuing, “yes,
dear, especially Gnrth's beer!”~ I.shut
the door, and ran. I think he was too
sick to follow; for I could see, by the
last glimpse I caught of his phiz, he was
turning white again.
A “local” in that morning's Pieavune
had posted me. Gurth, the brewer of
that nectar , had missed a very valuable
negro man some weeks previously, ad-,
vertised, could hear nothing of him, and
at last' almost forgot about the loss of the
Cl ‘chattel.” “Yesterday,” “Pick” said,
“on drawing off the beer from one of the
vats, poor Joe was found at the bottom,

The attention of all parties interested in the
pressing or compressing of Hay, Cotton, Hemp,
Wool,Raqs, Hops, or any other article required to
be baled for Transportation,Storage or Consump

or STATIONARY PRESSES, manufactured by
this Company, under the superintendence ot the
Patentee, Mr. JotfN H. Govs
The Press is very simple in its construction, re
quiring but ordinary intelligence to work it* ind
can be operated by any known power, s i(h as
Steam, Water, Horse or Hand. In using Horse
power but one horse is required, the Press being
so mechanically constructed on a well-known
principle that the iW~power increases in a greater
ratio than the increasina retristarwe.
The advantages of this Press over all others
are as follow’s, viz;
Ist. It can press 20 per cent, more material in
a giver space.
‘id. 11 can do the work in 33 per cent.less time.
3d. It requires 50 per cent, less driving power.
4th. It turns out the best shaped bale for hand
ling or rolling.
sth. The Press will last a life-time, the work
’’ng parts being built of the best of iron, and not
liable to get out of order.
The ordinary work of this machine will press
in one operation (after once filling the box of the
No. 1 Press) a bale of Hay of 450 lbs. weight in
Four men and one horse can bale 12 tons of
Hay a day.

No toggle joints, screws, cog-wheels, beaters
or rollers used in this Press.
The attention of Cotton factors and planters,
Wool and Hemp raisers, is especially called to
this Press, destined as it is to work a complete
revolution in thq how slow, clumsy and expen
sive method of baling.
The Company will dispose of Town, County or

right to manufacture) on reasonable terms.

The Major General Commanding being com
pelled by ■wounds to relinquish, for the present,
the command of the Department, takes this op
portunity tp express to the officers and men of
the Coast Division, under Brigadier General John
P. Hatch, his approbation or their good.conduct
during the operations on the line of the Charles
ibn and Savannah Railroad, since November
At the battle of Honey Hill, on November 30th,
although unsuccessful in the attempt to drive the
enemy from his forts, the Division still maintain
ed the light with unwavering steadiness during
the day, and retired from the field after nightfall
in good order and unpursued. Their losses attest
alike their courage and discipline.
At Dveeaux’ Neck, near the Coosawhatchie
turnpike, on December 6th, the advance, in num
ber much interim to the opposing force, met the
rebels in an open field, and drove them from the
ground, captured one flag, forced them to seek
safety in flight, leaving their dead anti wounded
in our hands, and thus occupied a position from
which the Railroad was under the easy fire of
On December 9th the skirmish line forced its
way to within a few yards of the Railroad and
the forts which guarded it, remaining there
under a most galling fire until an opening had
been cut through the woods between our bat
teries and the road, and thus perfected the work
so gallantly begun upon the 6th.
The Division has obeyed all orders promptly
and cheerfully, and since its co-operative move
ments with General Sherman’s Army, has vig
ilantly watched the enemy at its front, has
promptly seized each fortified position upon the
first indication of a proposed withdrawal on the
part of the rebels, ana has thus inspired the
Commanding General with the belief that it will
continue to do faithfully and well the work allot
ted to it in the great campaign which is being
prosecuted in South Carolina.
To Brigadier Generals Hatch and Potter, who
have commanded this force, and to all the gallant
officers and men under them, the Major General
Commanding tenders his thanks for the past,
and bis earnest wishes for their continued suc
cess. " r;
