Dr. Carter's leoture on hst Tuesday
night, at the Methodist Chintch, was
listened to with the greatest attedtion by
the select and intelligent audience in

An extraordinary chance is offered our
public at the sale of horses, mules, har

We always aislike to talk about the
weather, because everybody knows how
it is himself, but ip to last Thursday
mornming it was warm as in the spring
time. Since then, though, an additional

been opening huge boxes containing all

mischief to his competitors. Watch him.
DEATH or Mas. PHILUP BunG.-On
last Wednesday we attended the funeral
of this estimable lady whose untimely
demise renders a happy home circle sad
and desolate. A large number of the
friends of the family were present to
accompany the mortal remains to their
last resting place. We extend to our
good friend Phillip our heartfelt sym
pathy in this hour of his great misfor
tune and grief.
The other day we were almost pushed
off the sidewalk by an elegantly dressed
individual whom we soon recogniked as
one of our intimate friends. He looked
,as proud as Lucifer in his new clothes,
so much so that we inquired whether he
had won at the lottery or received an
inheritance. The short of the story is
,quickly told: the fellow was putting on
airs with one of those suite that Feible
man is selling for a mere trifle.
We can't understand how peop e can
e so bashful, but 'tis so nevertheless.
We have been amused of late in seeing
young and even old people go in at Mr.
John Johnson'shandsome jewelry estab
lishment and come out with little boxes
containing very fine presents, no doubt,
thatthey won't show, save to those they
love. The fact is thatMr.Johnsonisselling
the finest watches, rings, setts, silver
ware, clocks, and every other article in
that line at prices that are astonishingly
low. We would advise our friends to
visit him. Now is the time.
Mike Chambers is getting in a whole
lotof a Christmas doings, suitable for
prseents to big and little folks. When
the juvenile brigade starts out from his
store, fully equipped with drums, flag
colets, etc., we expect to stop up our
jars and retreat in good order. Mike
on't mean any harm by it, however;
heo keeps those articles because they are
wanted. By the by, we are indebted to
him for a beautiful musical composition,
entitled, "The Child's Untfinished Pray
er," by F. H. H. Thompson. We renew
our thanks for this additional kindness.
THE M IMO NIAL MANIA hass become
a fu5re lately in this neighborhood to
such an extent that no oine can tell
where it will stop. Old maids, widows,
misses, coefiri~d bachelors, widowers,
and the poetical single gentlemen, with
out distinction of race, color or previous
condition, each in their sphere, are get
ting spliced. That is, it would seem so

splendidly stocked Furniture and House
Furnishing Depot on Main, where all
these people are buying themselves rich
at prices that will compare favorably
with those of the Crescent City.
FIRE INSURANCE.--We take great plea
sure in calling the attention of our read
ers to the card of Messrs. MARKHAM and
IRnocs, appearing in another column.
They are so well known in the colnmu
nity that it would be futile for us to
speak of their capacity and high standi
inng. We deem that it is sufficient to say
that they are acting as agents of several
Yire Insurance Companies, for our people
to feel that any business which they may
have in that line, could not be more
safely entrusted than in the hands of
these two very clever and estimable
West Baton Rouge is fast becoming
one of the most prosperous parishes in
the State. Its planters are making mnag
nificent crops, and things look as bright
as they possibly can. The lands over
there are unsurpassed in fertility, and
the inhabitants clever, refined and hos
pitable. A great number of plantations
that were idle some years ago are now
producing golden harvests. Still there
is room for new comers who have capi
tal. There are many openings for such
to establish beautiful homes on the
banks of our great river and be repaid
for their investments in a proportion
that exceeds anything that one can
As CLEAN AS A WHISTLE, they Ray, a
' porker" weighing over250 pounds walk
e d away from the loving bosom of "long
John Chapman" on the night preceding
the late election, It seems that the old
trooper had '"bull penned" a lot of Radi
cal darkeys in his yard to have them
"handy" early in the morning, never
ddreaming for an instant that blood is
much stronger than water, else old "how
d'ye do," would have remembered how
dndticult it is to keep a Radical nigger
and a hog from coming together. It's as
natural as to roll offa log. At last ac
counts the patriotic victim was medita
ting over the ingratitude of man, the
loss of his Christmas hog, and the defeat
of his political schemes and ambitions.
We dislike very much to bring backdeed
isones, but the incident was too good not
jo be handed down to posterity.
A Cheap Stem Goner .
It must be generally admitted that
fuel is the most important item in the
- cost of manufacturing sugar, sand that
rgreat loss is frequently incuue4by plan
Sters, owing to the uncertain quallty of
Sthe fuel used. When it Is proven that
Sa great tbat of expense, and the
b uncertainty of maintaining a regular
o. pressure of steam, can be entirely obvia
Le ted, we have no doubt that inlteiedt6d
parties will not hesitate in taking ad
vadid of an invention that is an ep
Stire succsae. It is not only advantageous
to sugar-iiakeri but to steamboats and
Smanufacturers generally, who use the
power of steam.
S In our desire to advance the general
Sinterests of our State, on last Tuiesday,
Swe accepted the invitation of Mr. Win.
Blackie, the agent of Louisiana, a reei
dent of Baton Rouge, to accompany
him to the plantation of Mr. James R.
Devall, in West Baton Rouge, who is
using the steam generating pparhiatus,
ito his utmost satisfaction. Mr.Devall's
statement, coupled with our own obser
f vations, will be found below.
The apparatus in question consists in
the following simple mechanism:
A small hole drilled into the iron front
and into this paesses a tube which bran
11 ches as it leaves this point into two
Spipes. One connects with the boiler it
a self, and the other with the receptacle
n containing coal taW. At the juncthits of
these pipes there is an aperture for the
admission of outer or atmospheric air.
Valves of peculiar conetrudtioa regulate
n the quantity of tar or oil admitted
a to the furnace. This is all the machin
y ery requiFed, but its operation is won
d derfully complete and remarkably sun
o In answer to our inquiries, Mr. Devall
ir stated that he required at least thirty
Lr six cords of the inferior quality of wood
i- he was using (willow wood) to run his
r- steam-trains, evaporators, centrifugal
apparatus, etc., during twenty-four
hours, and to keep up a pressure of 701b.
steam two firemen were needed steady
d at work throwing fuel into the furnace.
s Per contra, with the use of the tar, a
Ssingle man could at leisure, with one
' half the quantity of wood consumed,
e numaintain a steam pressure of 1101b., if
n necessary, without the slightest inter
Sruption, enabling hin to take off two
n hogsheads of sugar to one without !the
use of the tar. He could thus gave
wood fuel, and the running expenseq of
n the sugar house one day in two. 'thia
, he accomplished by using but ten tar
rely of tar in twenty-four hours.
"This invention," said he, "hail been
- a god-send to inme this season, for Imy
s supply of wood would have given out
, long ago, and with coal at the present
y rates I would have been in a bad tix."
g Sugar makers, firemen and all hands
about the mill say that they can't get
n along without the tar; nothing works
y well without it
0 We noticed that the flame of the wood
fuel alone does not extend as far as the
rear of the furnace, whereas, with the
e tar added, a solid sheet of fire goes from
r one end to the other, imparting an
a eynal degree of heat to every part of
B the boilers, thereby preventing the
burning out of one end by intense hbet
r while the other is comparatieely un
'Mr. Blackie's apparatus is a very
e cheap one, and so simple in its operation
that the dullest mind can comprehend
' itat once.
It requires no mathematician to cal
, culate that a crop can be taken otf in
one half the ordinary time occupied, amtd
that in case of a freeze thousands af
dollars might thereby be saved. Thefe
I is no question in Mr. Devall'a mind, an.d
in ours, that this invention is one of
' immense value to our sugar planters.
-Mr. Devall will continue grinding nAi
, til Christmas, and will take pleasure itt
showing to all parties interested thre
practical workings of the apparatus and
process in question.
As a matter of unustal interest to the
1 sugar planters of our State, one that
must greatly diminish the costof produc
tion, we would especially request the
Ssgar Bowl, iberville South, Donaldson
ville Chief, Thibodeaux Sentinel, New
Orleans Democrat and Time., and in fact
all other papers friendly to the planting
I interest, to reproduce the above article
or in some way call attention to the mer
- its of the invention.

y agent for this State, Mr. William Blackie,

Y Never before nor for years after the

and it bewilders an ordinary miqmd to
contemplate the vast concern. Mr. Robs
inson is no doubt the wealthiest show
man in the world, and that he may no;t
be excelled by any one in the profession.
he has this season outstripped every fop

THE LEAP YEAR excitement, like the
SWiltz Wave, has struck us. We learn
Sthat our marriageable ladies, those not
rf too young to love, have formed an alli
i ance offensive and defensive, lately, and
Sare making preparations Mfr a camnpaign
short, sharp and decisive. Thiey are
getting up a party td which they are
going to take the boys by arbitrarily
pressing them into service. How far our
captivating fair ones intendto carry this
conspiracy we calmot foresee. We know
of a good many 'lords of creation' who
are anxiously awaiting the conquering
foe, and we are not sure but what some
of them are brave enough to sally out
and meet him considerably nearer than
half the distance intervening. Right
here, in the Capitolian ooffice, we hear a
voice or two exclaim, every minute in
the day: "let them come." The suffer
ers by this insurrection are the papas
anud maman, who are'paying for those
beautiful inew style hats and dresses
that the "dear ones" say they are pur
chasing at Mrs. Parker's for a more song.
Speaking of tableaus vieants, reminds
us of a little scene that occurred a few
days ago, not a thousand miles away.
At a ball a young man inquired of an
other: who is that giatffe of a girl over
there? That's my sister sir, wa& the
indignant reply. Unfortunately Lytle
did'nt have his instruments ready to take
in that tableau.
One night this week our publisher was
awakenad by sweet and inspiring strains
of music falling upon his ear. He lie
tened till the last sweet note died away
and then fell asleep to dream that lie
became nadly jealous of the gentle ears
for which he presumed the serenade was
intended. But when the morning sun
drove away the shadows of night he was
overwhelmed with delight to learn that
it was a compliment to him from his
accomplished friends of the Blind Insti
tute. It was as highly appreciated as
it wasunexpected, and be returns sin
cere thanks. May they live long, and
ever be as full of genuine delight as he
felt when listening to their masterly
rendition of "Home, sweet home."
As we go to press we learn that the
sugar house on Mr. Burris' plantation in
this parish, was destroyed by tire last
night. No particulars have as yet been
We acknowledge a call from Mr. Thos.
B. Brown of the Third Ward, a gentle
man who in the last campaign stood up
with his accustomed gallantry, in sup
port of the Democratic colors. We take
great pleasure in numbering Mr. Brown

a tabular statement of the State elec

For the Immediate Relief and Permanent Cure of
F HILLS AND FEVER, JNTEfIITTENT fEVER,
AND ALL OTHER ABNORMAL CONDITIONS PRODUCED BY MALARIAL POISONS,
I place before the public a preparation which is of the highest standard ,f
excellence, second to none, for the class of diseases for which it is intended. I
claim it to be a specific for this class of diseases, having submitted it to a rigid
test, extending over a period of several years, in treating the most obstinate cases
which have come under my observation with it succesgully.
1T mS PU imx VtEGTABLE Im TS FOMPOIN moM,
contains no Arsenic or Iron, but combines with the Muriate Tincture of Iron and
the Soluble Salts of Iron-making it a valuable tonic in all conditions where Iron
is indicated. It may be administered to the most delicate children with impunity.
Large numbers of testimonials could be produced as to its efficacy, but I deem
it best that it should recommend itself.
One bottle will satisfy any fair-minded person that it is worth five times its cost.
