Ravel Family


–The Ravels, who have so long entertained our worthy citizens, have at length taken their departure. Gabriel, Jerome and Antoine, with their families, sailed on Monday in the Burgundy for Havre, to visit their father and grandfather have both acquired fortunes in the same business that is now raining wealth on the children. Gabriel takes out $80, 000, which he has earned in the last ten years in Havana and the United States.—The other members of the family, with Francoise at their head, left yesterday for Pernambuco and the Brazils, where they expect to be joined again by the Gabriel and his companions during the winter. The family are very much united, and it is said the parting scene on board the vessel was very touching.
