Alderman Duffel presented the following:
To the lion. Mayor and Aldermen of the
Town of Donaldsonville:
The petition of the undersigned citizens of
the town of Donaldsonville anll of the Parish
of Ascension, respecttully lecpresent to your'
Honorable body, that they have lt-eu in
fiornmed that acting upon a memorial of per
sous lreprese~unting the interest of the steam
anti flat boats plying in Bayou Lafourehe.
your body, at its last session, adopted a
resolutioni transferring the Bayou Latiurnche
ferry from its present location to the headl of
Opelousas street. Your lstitioners further
represent that your said action omust have
been based upon the false representations of
said memorialists, and the propoosed change,
will prose highly injurious to the under
signed, who are vitally interested in the mat
ter. That said ferry itas now established, in
no way interferes with tihe navigation of the
Bayou, and places no obstacles to the receiv
ing and discharging of freight as represented
to you, as the water of the Bayou is so lor
that boats, whether steamboats or flatboats,
can no longer cross the bar at the lmouth d'
the B;yottu. That ample space hasl been
allotted on the battmre and banks of tie
Bayou for the aceomrmodation of steamboats
and other watercraft; and the space resett
ed for the terry lauding fronm time imueu
orial has been deluonstrated by long expetd
etuce to be the best, most accessible awl
safest place at which to crossnn vehicles in how
water, and has never been considered until
now as fornigin any obstruction to the frte
ua vigation of the l ayou.
Your petitioners further respectfully show
that the crossing at Opelousas street, is nt
only inconvenient and i practictable at the
present stage of the water, but is emmiu
ently dangerous owing to the steepness of
the banks; and any attempt to cross there
in carriages, buggies and wagons, in dark
nights or Im wet and imuddy weather, would
lh courting danger. That an inspection of
the same will at once convinuce you of the
Premises considered, your petitioners
would respectfully ask that you reconsider
and recall your" resolution changing tie
hByou Lafourehe landing froml its present
And your petitioners will ever pray as in

Aldernan Duffel spoke at great length in
support of the petition, and urged the Conn
cil to reconsider Itheir former vote and
rescind the resoulntion passed, moving the
He was followed by Alderman Noel, who
urged the Council to stand by their vote,
and remove the ferry at all hazards.
Alderman Smith spoke in an earnest man
ner in support of the resolution, and advo
cated the moving of the ferry as a measure
of public safety.
Alderman llurbridgoe and Johnson sus
tained hinm in his views, and urged the
removal of the ferry to ()pelousas street.
M. Marks, Esq.. was granted permission to
make his views known, which he did in a
lengthy speech justifying the removal of the
ferry; and said. 'the Council will act like
children to be swayed by the lwtition now
before the Council."
Alderman Duffel replied to Mr. Marks, hy
stating the reason the ferry was ever moved
from its present location, which was because
the fort built opposite, omnpelled the ferry
to move further down the Bayou; but the
ferry had been at the mouth of Bayou La
fiur-che for f1fty or sixty years, and comn
mierce did not suffer. The former ('ouncils
had allowed the ferry to move from ()pelon
sas street to its present location in low water,
and lback'to Opelousas street in high water
whichever location was most safe for travel.
Alderman Burbridge moved that the
Mayor address the Council and give his
views of the vexed question. Motion adopt
His Honor gave the chair to Alderman
Smith. and luoceeed to make a telling argu
ment. le said: W" When the Governor ap
pointed myself and this Council, he intended
we should do our duty by the people, irre
specti\ve of party, ljust the same as if we hadi
received the entire vote of the town and
parish, and we are in duty bound to give due
weight to the voice of the peopleh. I do not
think it childish to reconsider a -vote or
action of the Council. if we are assured said
action is wrong and will work a hardship to
the majority of the people. And I think this
petition of the planters, merchan:ts and
others, should be duly considered. The
town is building rapidly, and this Council
should do all in their power to enhance the
value of property."
The Mayor in the el ai.-.
Alderunum Smith said he wanted to do the
best for the people at large, also; but
thought the poor people entitled to as much
consideration as the rich ones; snd moved
to lay the petition on the table.
Before putting to vote, the Mayor suggest
ed that the resolution be rescinded.
Alderman Smith withdrew his motion and
offered the following resolution. which was
seconded hy Alderman Noel.
Be it rerslved that the ferry-man be and is
hereby allowed a longer time to move the
ferry, and that "fifteen days instead of five
days, from notice, be given."
The resolution was accepted.
Alderman Smith offered the following:

shall turn over the funds or market dues
eolleeted each week, to the T'rcastuser, each

equal interest and satistiutios by boys o"f

Its scientifie lpapers, while salte.eotly pro
found to delmttnd the attenttion of thug learu

was the organ of the "Society for the Diffu

The great design of Harper's is to give cot

tihe "reat masses of people. There are few

There is no nmonthlý magazine that an in

without. Many mag zinesa are accumulated.
Harper's is edited. Thelt is not a heaper

cdly a more popular nutgazine in the world.

Harper's Weekly deserves its prhuocy in
this class of publication, alike for the value
of its matter as the excellence of its illustra

dictated in aid of a sound public opiunos, and
against public wrongs and utllies. _liei u-

not filled by any American periodical, and
won for ittslf a deserved popularity. It is
really the only illustrated chronicler of fash

are worth the subscription price of the paper.
While fully maintaining its position its a omir

brilliant essays, besides general and person
