The plastering is talling from the
ceiling of the Market-house in liarge
pieces, and it isa wonder somebody
has not been seriously injured thereby
before this.
Mr. John D. Cantey, Clerk of Court
for this parish, has kindly consented
to act as an agent for the CHIEF, and
due authorization is hereby given
him as such.
The regular term of the District
Court will convene in this parish on
thet third Monday of the present
mouth. There is a large number of
cases upon the docket we are told.
A friend who day before yesterday
visited the plantation of Messrs. Irvin I
& Gibson, situated upon the left
bank of the liver in the upper portion
of the parish, informs us that the cane
on that place is yielding remarkably
well for the season, and that grinding
is progressing very satisfactorily.
On Tuesday last, Jack Dugas was I
arrested by Constable Maher for I
being drunk, using vulgar and obscene I
language on the streets, and disturb- I
ing the peace. Jack was fined five
dollars and costs by the Mayor, paid
Ihis fine, and went his way a poorer
tnud it is to be hoped a better man.
An attache of the railroad informs
us that there is no foundation for the
rumor that the company intends to
phlace two daily passenger trains on
the road between here and New
Orleans within any definite space of
time. There is no doubt that it will
be done eventually, but not for several
months yet, perhaps.
Tuesday afternoon a visible change
inº the u.tmosphere took place, and
since that time we have experienced
weather that is quite wintry. A good .
fire is an almost indispensable conm
fort, and thick clothing a necessity.
The sugar planters rejoice at the
.cbange, as the cane will now ripen
very fast, and the yield of sugar
ipcrease-greIly in consequence.
Jaast Monday night it rained and it

ran full of muddy water and the
streets and sidewalks were converted
into one grand mud puddle, Walk

Of course there was a great to do
made by the owners of stray animals
with which the pound was filled last
week, and a general crying out on
their part of the injustice of the
pound-keeper in locking up their
particular animals; but the authori
ties wcre inexorable, and each and
every person had to pay the pre
scribed fine of five dollars, and the
pound-keeper's fee of one dollar,
before procuring a release of their
property. Only one or two animals
remain in the pound, and if not called
for they will, after due notice in the
official journal, be sold at auction for
the benefit of the corporation.
The idea occurs to Is that a man
might find a lucrative business in
traveling up and down the railroad
and picking up the hats that blow
from the heads of passengers on the
trains. From all accounts, we are of
Ithe opinion that there have been
enough hats scattered along the road
since it has been opened to fill a small
. sized hat store. We lost one ourself

last Tuesday's train, and would have

harm the cane.
Judge Robert Turner has a flourish

present attendance is sixty, with an
almost daily accession of new pupiils.
The regular term of the District
Court, which was to commence Mon
day, will probably be adjourned to
the first Monday of December. One
of the reasons for this postponement
is that no jury has been drawn.
Governor Warmoth has commuted

About three o'clock in the after
noon, last Sunday, a difficulty arouse
between George Washington and his
nephew Ursiu Louden, both colored,
during which the latter received a
blow on the nasal organ from the
bony fiat of the immortal father of his
country, which caused the blood to
run rather freely. The, belligerents
were arrested and taken before Judge
Robert Turner who fined them ten
dollars each for disturbing the peace.
A Forgers Career.
We copy as follows from the New
York Tribune of the 25th :
For several months, Detectives
Elder and McDougal of the Central
Office, have been in pursuit of an
accomplished forgir, who has been
operating in this and other cities, and
has obtained from savings and other
banks, on forged checks and altered
drafts, sums aggregating several
thousand dollars. About June 1, a
spare, gentlemanly appearing man,
age 30, of nmedium height, smooth
face, brown hair, slightly bald in
front, having a peacliar crooked nose,
called at the banking house of E. D.
Morgan & Co., No. 54 Exchange
Place, and presented a card bearing
the inscription, " B. S. Downer intro
duced by Geo. S. Dunlap." The
stranger said that he was from Detroit,
Michigan; that he was a friend of
Senator Chandler of Michigan and
wished to purb*ase $5000 of the bonds
of the New Orleans, Mobile and Texas
Railroad Company. fHe was told that
cash or a certified cheek would be
required. On the following day he
called again, and presented what
purported to be a certified check for
$5000, drawn on the Stuyvesant
Balnk by B. S. Downer. It seemed
to be regular, and flv' $1000 bonds of
e the company were given him, with
r the firm's check for $333, the differ
ence between the amount of the check
and the "market value" of the bonds.
1 The bonds received by him were
Nos. 96 to 100, inclusive. The check
given by Downer proved to be a forg
ery, but before this was discovered
he had disposed of the bonds and the
smaller check received by him.
Detectives Elder and McDougal were
informed of the forgery, and at once
put themselves in communication
with the various out-of-town detec
tives, giving them a description of the
Z races of him soon began to appear.
He had opened an account at a bank
in Toledo, Ohio, and had deposited
what purported to be a certified
check for $8000, drawn by Babcock
Bros. & Co., of No. 37 William street,
New York in favor of J. H..Ransom
& Co. He drew $2500, and escaped
before the fraudulent cha acter of the
check was ascertained. At Toledo.
as well as at other plac.es, he pro
fessed co be purchasing wool. Soon
afterward he deposited a check for
$10,000 in the Royal Canadian Bank
ai Montreal, and attempted to draw
against it, but the officers of the bank
refuse& to honor it until they had
communcated with Babcock Bros. &
Co., on whom the check was also
drawn. The operator did not wait for
the desi red information, but went
West. The bank officers sent a
description of him to Superintendent
Kelso, and thus Elder learned of his
whereahouts and started in pursuit,
but returned after an nuavailing
On Angost 23d, the City Nt'ional
Bank of Poughkeepsie, received Iom
the Ocean National Bank three drau"
for $900, $1'000 and $1500. These
drafts iurpoxted to have been drawn
by the Poughkeepsie bank on the
Ocean Nation al Bank to the order of
Samuel E. Collins. An unvestigation
proved that the three drafts were
originally issued for $30 each, and
that they had been skillfully raised.
't he original filling in of the drafts
had been so completely erased, that a
powerful microscope failed to reveal
any trace of it. These drafts were
traced back from the Ocean to the
Oriental Bank, and thence to the Dry
Dock Savings Bank, where they hadI
been received and paidl. It was ascer
tained that a short time previous .a
m.n giving the name of Samuel F
Collins, but answering completely to.
the description given of the forger, of t
whom Elder was in search, had opened
account, depositing several sums of
money and draift, and drawing
against them, finally deposited the
drafts in question, drawn the amounts
in full, and closed his account. On I
September 19 the newspapers of this
city published a tekgram fiom St.
L >uis, stating that a man givinCg the
name of J C Whittemore, had been
arrested on suspicion of being the,
peron who .ictimized se eral banks1
in Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. I
Among his effects were found a letter
of ,utroduction purporting to have
been issued by the National Bank of
Commerce of this cit . The evidence
against him was not deemed sufficient
to warrant his detention. and he
was discharged before 'Detective
Elder, who had s ..t out at once for St.
Louis, reached that city. He was
the man for ,whom the Detectives
were searching, and success at length
rewarded their efforts. They learned
that t+h forger was & gain in this city,
and arrested him on Monday night, as
he w:s absout to enter a Broadway
car at Greene and Fourth streets. He
was locked up at police headquarters.
Several persons connected with the
banking institutions of this citý,
which the forger victimized, identified
him yesterday. Among others were
Judge Henry R. Low, Treasurer of
the New York and Oswego ,Midland
Railroad Company, who recognized
him as Arthur Breed, of Fulton
Oswego county, New York, and stated
that nearly a year ago he had obtained
$3500 of the bonds of the Midland
railroad, and when arrested, had
given and forfeited bail. One of the
officers of the Bank of Commerce of
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, called yester
day on Babcock Bros. & Co., of Wil
liam street, and informed them that
recently a man answering the descrip
tion of the prisoner deposited in the
bank a cheek for $10,000 purporting
to have been issued by Babeock Bros.
& Co., and endeavored to obtain
$3500 on it, but failed to do so; the
bank officers declining to pay any
thing on it until they should be satis
fied that it was genuine. The pris
oner has passed under many names,
but it is believed that his real name
is Henry Young.
He was committed by Juastice Hogan i
to the Tombs. Several complaints
will be made against him. He was
arrested nearly a year and a half ago
on suspicion of having shot and
robbed Harvey, the messenger of
the American Merchants' Union Ex
press Company, in the express car
while leaving the Albany depot.
James Filkius was afterward con
victed of that otense.

Every suceeessful advertiser will say
this. Seed strewn there-if the seed

up a crop of some value; most general

among the people, are auxiliaries in
advertising, but it is doubtful whether
they more thanpay the expense, while

only disigured by posters, provoking
in the weil-regulated mind a sense of
aversion to the man who so advertises,

There is no monthly magazine that an in
