Expensive Dinners.
It is to be doubted whether the death
of any poet, philosopher or philanthropist
hns ever been so greatly regretted in New
York as that of the celebrated gastrono-
mist, Lorenzo Delmonico, or, as he pre-
ferred to write himself, Del'Monico.
There are few palates of any account
that they have not been tickled by his de-
licious plats, aud when his demise was
announced thousands of sighs went up
from as many souls as the memory ot the
delicious dinners, the delightful suppers
and daiuty breakfasts that had been en-
joyed at the principal centres, both busi-
ness and social, where the restaurants
are found.
Ot course, others otthe family still stir
vive, and will carry on the business, but
the gratitude of a public partial to rare
old wines, refined cooking and good ser-
vice, will be centered upon the sturdy
and enterprising Swiss who originated
the scheme of a restaurant where only
the best that the market could yield
should bo served, and Ihe plainest cook-
ing be done by artists.
Poor Delinonico died literally a victim
to his cigars, which ho had made express-
ly for himself in Cuba, and were more
black than brown in color, half as long
again as usual, atul so strong that an ave-
rage smoker would find one cigar all that
he could grapple with; lint the famous
caterer consumed no less than thirty dai-
ly—sufficient to keep his nerves tranquil
through the wear and tear of running half
a dozen restaurants.
He began without a cent in 1832, and
has died worth over $ 1.000.000, and ex-
cept iu the matter ot tobacco, is said nev-
er to have been guilty of personal extrav-
agance. He was justly proud of the busi-
ness he had built up, and in a chat your
eorrespondent had with him not long ago
remarked that there were no celebrated
divines, lawyers, authors, actors, doctors,
politicians or social lions that had not
been dined aud wined iu his establish-
ments, to say nothing ot distinguished
visitois from abroad.
Among others was Louis Napoleon, af-
terwards emperor of the French, who re
turned to dine there daily with James
VVallack. This compliment Delmonico
hugged to his soul for he was an ardent
admirer of the Napoleons, aud used to
wear a lock of Napoleon Bonaparte's hair
in Ihe locket of his watch chain,and would
not, he said, take $10,000 for it.
Another Frenchman who found favor
in his eyes was the Prince de Joinvilie,
who when he was here in 1S40, lived at
the caterer's. Jenny Lind, lie said, was
not easy to please, for she made it a rule
not to be satisfied, but still she always
smiled before she had finished her soup.
The Grand Duk? Alexis said there was
no cook in the world who could please
him like Delmonico, and many were the
little suppers he.gave there himself.
One of the most memorable affairs was
the Press club dinner given Cbavles Dick-
ens at the Fourteenth street house. There
were 200 journalists present. Horace
Greeley presided,and Henry J. Raymond
made the speech of the evening. This was
the only occasion on which Dickens con-
sented to, be feted i:t this countiy.
It was there l<e made his famous after-
d in tier speech, in which he said some
very flattetir.g things about this country,
to counteract the effect of his '•American
Notes,''and "Martin Cliuzzlewit." Later
these remsirks were added as notes to
both these works.
Delmonico said that Dickens was a
generous eater aud a still mote generous
drinker. Two bottles ot champagne were
invariably swallowed with his lunch, and
what he called his "thimbleful" of brandy
was a good-sized tumbler, which he toss
ed down without apparent e&ect before
The most extensive dinner the caterer
ever served was the one ordered by the
brilliant English adventurer, Sir Morton
Peto. This banquet cost $20,000 for the
bare dinner,the gui srs numbering only 100
mostly | roiniuent business men. The din-
ing-room was decorated with orchids,rare
ferns an I the most costly ot gieen-house
products. The menu was embroidered
iu Oriental colors on white satin. A good
deal of the wine cost twenty five dollars a
bottle, aud the best musicians in the
country wore engaged at any price they
chose to ask. Miss Clara Louise Kellogg
received $1,000 tor singing two ballads
and a superb bracelet ot diamonds aud ru-
Another dinner of note was given by
ltobert L. Cutting. It was known after
ward as the ''Grand swan" dinner because
in the centre of the enormous table was a
miniature lake, bordered by pond i lies
and reeds, and iu it swam swan
give any orders,and I don't want to know
what it will cost, but I'll pay the bill next
day. Give us your best for 500 people.'
He did as he said, and handed me a check
for $30,000.
The habitues of Deltnonico's for the
last forty years include such noted names
as Dr. Kane, Gen. Scott, the elder Ben-
nett, who was fond ot good living; A. T.
Stewart, who gave plenty of expensive
ilinuers, but never par took of tliein him-
self, a bowl of chicken broth or a plain
chop being served especially for him;
John Jacob Astor, generous iu viands but
close jn wines. Abraham Lincoln used
to cross his long legs under the Fourteen-
th street table often. Grant and Johnson
andTilden were old frequenters.
Bayard Taylor, Bryant, Emerson,Long-
fellow, YVhittier and Hawthorne have
sought fresh inspiration for song and
story in the goblets and dishes marked
with a D. Beecher, Talmage, Alger and
Dr. Tyng have often added their little
mites to Ihe well known till, while the
great native and foreign actors known to
us have been feasted again and agaiu in
Deltnonico's parlors.
Another feature which has made this
restaurant so successful is the speed and
perfect promptness with which large aud
late orders are filled. For example, one
day the late Jim Fisk walked in and or-
dered an elegant hot lunch for 150 gentle
men, to be served iu the Erie building at
six o'clock, "and mind you have lots of
flowers and filigree things,'' lie ended.
"But, Colonel," said Delmonico, look-
ing at his watch, "it's four o'clock now."
"Well, will you do it?"
"Yes," was the reply, "but the bill will
be a big one,'' and at six o'clock Colonel
Fisk's guests sat down to an elaborate
The patrons ot Dclinotiico's are not all
men, by any means, and numberless are
the little dinners given to aud by ladies
there. Ever since its organization the
Sorosis club has held its monthly meet-
ing and annual ic-unions there. At the
former, to be sure, it indulges in nothing
more exciting than coffee, salads and
creams, but at the yearly banquet one
gets a false idea of woman's capacity for
ordering a good dinner.
The famous flower parties given for the
benefit of the homoeopathic dispensaries
are held here every winter, and afford
one of the prettiest of society spectacles
iu a luxuriant frame of blossoms and
plants; besides these a large number of
associations, composed of both men and
women, hold their re-unions here.
Some idea ot the scale on v;hieh this
well known caterer did business may be
gleaned from the fact that he paid out
over $100,000 in rents yearly,aud employ-
ed 450 servants, his pay roll amounting to
$15,000 a mouth. The head cook gets
$4,000 a year aud his living expenses;
the other cooks from $15 to $30 a week;
and the soul of the weary salesman may
swell with envy when he learns that the
head waiter earns 81.500, board and lodg-
ing. The waiters, between their wages
and pourboires, make something like $00
per mouth.
One of the secret, of Lorenzo Deltnoni-
co's success was his personal devotion to
his business long alter his means and
tastes would have dictated at least a par-
tial retirement, but up to his last illness
he did the regular marketing for all his
restaurants, aud spent the remainder oi
the day in going from one to another.

swells who noticed the quiet, unassutn-
A Talk witli the Apache Chief-
A Chicago Times coreespondent at
Tucson procured the services of a civiliz-
ed Apache who speaks Spanish, and a
Spanish interpreter, to-day, and-hunted
up Eskiminzin, who with a few of his
people, is now in Tucson. He is a rather
solidly built man, five feet eight inches
high, with a fleshy face and a keen, pierc-
ing eye, and an upper lip that indicates
great decision of character. He has sev-
ered his tribal relations with the Apaches.
He had on a rather respectable frontier
dress, a bird's eye calico thirt, cassiuiere
vest aud pantaloons,and a good palin-leat
hat, aud neat fitting moccasins. He is
now on a ranch cultivating corn and rais-
ing stock, and, as he claims, is now an
American citizen. He savs he works all
day, and when he retire* at night he
thinks about what he will do the next
day,ard how he can do good and do right.
He now lives with Americans and Mexi-
cans, and tries to live as they do, so that
he can travel on the roads with safety and
drink water wherever he can find it with-
out beiug shot at. He found that carry-
ing things on horses was not a good way,
so he bought a wagon, but this he found
too heavy for family use, and he bought a
carriage, for which he paid $180. lie says
he, with a number of Apaches, first set-
tled at Arivipa, aud were all friendly, af-
terwards most of them ran away, but he
did not. It was there he first became ac-
quainted with Gov. Saliord, who told him
not to be bad any longer and go about
murdering his white brothers, but to be
good and settle down on a ranch,cultivate
the land, and raise stock, and he would
be much happier than in the life he was
then living. Up to that time he had been
a very bad Iutlian, and had killed many
whites, Mexicans, and other Indians. His
forefathers taught him to steal and plun-
der. De thought much on what Gov.
Safl'ord had told him, and finally made up
his mind to change his ways and mode ot
life. He has always remembered what
his good friend said, and finds his new
life much the better way. He now can go
wherever he wants to, unmolested and
without fear, and avery man is his friend.
He has a number of acres in cultivation,
crossed by irrigating ditches. JJe had to
make three ditches and it cost him much
money, but he kept on working till he
got it right. Water would run up hill
for a white man, but not for an Indian.
He has plenty of corn, eleven horses, and
forty six cattle. He has sold much stock
during the past year, and eaten a good
many head of cattle. Sometimes he has
as high as fifteen or twenty Mexicans and
Indians at work on the ranch. In answer
to a question as to how many wives he
had, he would not answer. He said that
was a thing that concerned no one, and if
he should tell, the white man would only
laugh at him. It is known he has three
wives. He says he is not afraid of the
Americans, but he expects some of the
bad Indians ot his own tribe will some
someday kill him because he has become
an American citizen. Ho has a boy five
or six years old, aud when he dies he
wants the boy to have his ranch. He lost
all his older children, who were murdered
by the Papa go Indians on the reserva-
tion several years ago. He lives within
a half mile of where his children were kill-
ed and buried, and when he dies he wants
to be buried there. He says he has a
brother-fn-law attending college in the
east, probably in Virginia, who writes let-
ters to him, and tells him what a beauti-
Fort Sherman,
Even Trinity Church, r.s an edifice, is
now thrown into the shade by the massive
building recently erected on the northeast
corner of Broadway and Wall streets.
Tins splendid structure rises to the height
of nine stories, and embodies in its con-
struction all that is best in the builder's
art. The first story is ot rough red gran-
ite, the walls being ten feet thick aud the
ceilings lofty. The buildiug is owned by
the First National Bank,and, as the total
cost ot it was made by this institution in
negotiating the sale of "four per cents,"
during the 'treasury administration ot
"Honest Jolfn Sherman," the wags of
Walt street have nicknamed it Fort Sher
man, and the satire seems
so good that
the name sticks in spite of the strong le-
gend across the front, which assures the
world that this is the "United Bauk
Building." It is a marvellous mystery to
the uninitiated how it was possible for a
bank, with a capital ot only $500,000, to
clear enough in six months to divide $1.-
500.000 among Us stockholders, but Sec
retaries of the Treasury can do stranger
things without making the country either
richer or wiser.
The First National people have reserv-
ed the best portion of the first floor for
their own use, and the finishing and furn-
ishing of their offices are rie'i and splen-
did euough to attract attention anywhere.
The doors, door frames, window sills, and
all the desks aud furniture, are made of
solid mahogany and ebony. There is no
veneering and shamming about this
woodwork; it is not stained or bedaubed
in any way, but shines in the enduring
richness and solidity of its natural red
and black with a splendor that could not
be increased by any aid from art or artist.
The frescoeing of the ceiling and walls is
now progressing, but an envious screen
of scaffolding and building paper shuts
out this part of the work from the sight
seer, and its glories will not be revealed
until the last touch of the brush has plac-
ed the seal of perfection on the artist's
conception. There is no doubt that it
will be agrea! triumph of decorative art.
The remainder of the first floor is occn
pied by the United States National Bank
of which Gen. Grant is a director, and it
is finished and adorned in a style to cor-
respond with the splendor of the First
National. The remainders of the vast
building is occupied by bankers aud bro-
kers, and the offices are said to be the
finest and most commodious in the city.
It is probable that within the next de-
cade a vast majority ot the buildings in
this vicinity will be pushed to a height of
uine or ten stories, as ouly iu this way
can the additional space required by the
growing demands of the mouey congers
be secured. AH the buildings now in pro-
gress of construction on the lower end of
the islaud will be at least nine stories
high, and plans are already prepared for
a large number of others of like altitude,
which will be erected as soon as existing
leases permit.

had a pretty mulatto wife, and Hauk
Johnson, also a negro, fell in love with
her. She did not encourage Hank, and
he went to a voudoo conjurer for a charm
to touch her heart. The conjurer, after
mature reflection, decided that, the charm
should consist of some fox hair, beeswax,
a drake's foot, aud a little saiul frotn Mrs.
Davis' shoe, all sewed up in a small bag
and ,vorn by Hank over his heart. At the
end ot a week the woman confessed a
love for him, but refused to separate from
her husband on his account. The conju-

The Utter Young Woman oi the Hub.
The dress and manner of the intense
young woman of Boston are worth a few
words of description. She is wont to
wear her hair combed straight back from
her forehead, thus throwing into promi-
neuee'her "bumps'' of thought, ideality
and reasou. She wears a wide-rimmed
hat, fixed firmly upon the back of her
head, which accents the expression ot her
face as caused by the arrangement of lier
hair. She also wears a broad collar,
sometimes made of lace, and again of lin-
en, or a material to match her dress, af-
fects a sort of loose blouse secured by a
belt at the waist, aud wears a straight-
cut or kilted skirt, which hangs suffi-
ciently above the ground to show her
trim buttoned boots, which are usually,
if the truth be stated boldly, of a some-
what generous size. Her walk is of a
most extraordinary and indescribable
sort. To accomplish it, on stepping from
a horse-car or a carriage, a peculiar anil
unvarying series of maneuvres is execu-
ted, which I look upon daily with a new
and unfailing delight. Before getting
uuder way the figure us erect and grace-
ful enough, but immediately there comes
a change. The knees appear to bend a
little; at the same moment the body
seems to sink slightly iuto the hips, and
one perceives by the movement that the
lady's form owes something to the bustle.
The shoulders are then thrown forward
and the elbows back, the forearm, mean-
while, beiug horizontal and the hands
dangling like the rorepaws of those sin-
gular animals, the kangaroos. The head
is then tossed back in such wise that the
chin attains a prominence evidently not
intended by nature; the eyes are opened
to a natural extent, thus giving a set ami
earnest expression to the face; a fixed
and lightly-indicated smile just moves
the corners of the mouth and displays
whatever dimples may lie in the cheeks,
and the young woman is ready for her
promenade. The transformation above
described is almost instantaneous, but its
various steps are clearly marked and
easily observed as they succeed each oth-
er. This result achieved, a decided
movement animates the form; it rises
slowly upon the toes of the French boots,
teeters lightly thrice, and moves down
the street iu a series of wobbly, serpen-
tine uudulations, which set the head to
bobbing backward and forward aud to
righc and left like one of those ingeuious
dolls which the Chinese delight to manu-
facture. The spine bends, shakes, and
shivers, and the arms flap irregularly in
and out much after the fashion of a chick-
en whose wings are wet. Words are fee-
ble things with which to describe this
phenomenon, which is, nevertheless, fa
miliar to every observing Bostonian. It
must require an immense amount of per-
sistence to master the intricacies of this
gait, and there is no doubt that physically
it is very injurious, with its jarring of the
pinal column and its unequal and sud-
den strain upon the muscles. It is rare
ly seen iu its perfection, although most
of our young women of "ton'' are assidu-
ously practicing it, and displaying it
upou tlie streets in all degrees of incom-
pleteness. I have seen this gait nowhere
else, and it may be taken as the exclu-
sive accomplishment at present of the
Boston young woman of culture and true
intellectual tastes.
In speaking ot the icsthetic tendencies
of the younger generation of Boston, I
have taken up so much space in the de-
scription of its female element that 1 have
uo opportunity more than to allude to the
male contingent, who are, after all, the
city's crowning glory. If not as intense-
ly intellectual as theiii sisters, they are
as notable in social lite in other respects,
anil afford an interesting subject for
study. In another letter I hope to pay
my compliments to a few of their many
amiable traits, and to ofter admiring trib
ute to their engaging qualities.

The Profits of Fruit-Growing.
Dr. Chandler brought to the Appeal
office yesterday raoruing a box of raisins
grown and cured in his vineyard in Sut-
ter County, about six miles below Yuba
City. The raisins were large, plump,
juicy and of rich flavor, superior to the
best London layers, which are the best
usually imported to the United States.
There are, however, five fiuer grades
than London layers cured and packed in
Malaga. The finest grades are numbered
from 1 to 5. The Doctor thinks that the
sample box he brought iu fully equals in
quality the No. 3 grade ot Malaga. Such
raisins command 20 cents a pound in the
wholesale market. The bulk of the Doc-
tor's raisin crop does not ot coarse equal
in quality the sample above described.
His product of raisins commands an av-
erage price ol 121-2 'cents per pound.
The cutting of his second crop of grapes
this season was finished yesterday. His
raisin product this year will aggregate
about 5,000 boxes of twenty pounds to a
box. This makes 100,000 pounds, which,
at 121-2 cents a pound, gives the snug
sum ot $12,500. The doctor has about
forty acres devoted to the viue. His
raisins arc all made from the Muscatel
grape. This is the grape from which the
raisins of Malaga are made, aud the doc-
tor says he knows of none so good for
