NEW ORLEANS CHESS CLUB.----- Arrangements for the reorganization of the above society have been perfected. A formal inauguration of the club took place on Tuesday evening, Nov. 14, and was made the occasion of a pleasant réunion, at which wit and wine sparkled, and gaiety reigned supreme until a late hour of the night. At a special meeting it was agreed that the present club should be governed by the by-laws of the old association, and the following gentlemen were unanimously elected as officers: President, P. Morphy ; Vice-President, P. N. Strong; Secretary, C. Maurian; Treasurer, A. Blackmar.---New Orleans Sunday Star.
