One of the finest pictorial illustra timns we- have seen for a long while tithe view of the burnt district of BOAton given on a supplement to .Fronk ZIlia's BlMtawted Xeaespaper of December 28th. This splendid pic tute is furnished to subscribers free of extra charge, and is itself worth the price of a year's subscription. . All .the New Orleans daily papers eitcept L'Abeille haves reduced the price of single copies to five cents. The subscriiti ' prce of the . epub 1s change from 16 to $12 per annum, 4a0C ' of the Times from $16 ti $14. This is a step in the u 3dfr0e0oo. There is no good $ New Orleans papers be dearer than those of the othe ,rge cities. Despite the vehement and oft-re jiat*d t dejlh tion of the more hot 7dof the Fusion journals hat Ieai smis on the verge of inancial rrt , "ft no prospect of redemption Sla' McEjiery ie Governor, State warrants and, other securities are slgidity Increasing in value. This *t will go further with sensible p.ople than a thogsand columns of newspaper balderdash. By reference to the table of adver tishig rates published in the first col umn of the first page, our readers will saertain that we have made some changeh In a ftw of the items, increas ing the prices in two instances, but reducing thepn in several others. These rates we now as reasonable as we can in justice to ourselves and the pro ression make them, and they will be adhered to. We solicit the patron age of advertisers, feeling assured they will realize a handsome return for all mosey expended in inserting notices Insigned to meet the public eye in the columns of the CamEF. Hon. Alex. H. Stephens, who held ths:peaition of Vice-President of the Southern Confederacy during the. late unpleasantness, advises the people of Luausmena not to resort to violent or illegal means to install McEnery as Governor, but to leave the matter to be settled by the courts. Mr. Steph ans defends the position taken by President Grant with regard to the Louisiana contest as the only proper usae .W be assumed by him under the eireemistanees. Can not some of our brethren of the Fusion press, who are effervescing with indignant rhet oric over the situation, learn a little wisdom from the Southern big gun editor and simmer down. It Is a curious fact that the anti Redican .candidates in Arkansas are about instituting the same sort of )rsree&dings before the U. S. Circuit Court for that state, for the purpose of preventing their opponents from getting the offices, as were ei ered in tl1e Court in this State by Mr. Kellogg. If:$he. Mkansas Judge decides the saie way Judge Durell did, what a 4 ~t p sound will the cry of I ai iea Dsmocrats against " Fed eaal tla iiou become to the ears df r tbren in Arkansas. It lp8esiMledisfesce in the world vshouas~xis' rred" fhi matters like this. A POINT TO BE OONSIDEBED. ~e ? Vorkribune ,ad sn are in jsoj nddlqfor twd pi able Joul regardig Louisana naffirs, a t t -ilrgf1 al logic^ xetes the surprise and impatience of even the comparatively insignj~eapt it Ev. Both the great New York journals mentioned cry out against the inter ference of a federal court in the State e6 quhak " .:r and dan gerous inroad upon the liberties of the people, and contend.tbat the set tlemeat qf the contest should have been Jel to the State courts alone. The abutectietindple our two " big brothers":of the press advocate is an exllent one1 but can it be that they are ignorant of the fact that Governor Warmoth set the' oier of the State courts at defiance; that he directed the judge of a New Orleans District Court to be fbrelbly displaced from the bench for giving a decision adverse to the political interests of the Chief Ex ecutive, and that he refused to recog nise the mandate of the Supreme Court reinstating the Secretary of State who had been removed from of fice by his Executive order, because that mandate would invest the re instated- Secretary with the powers of a Returning Officer ? With the highest State judicial an thority trampled upon by the Execu tive, where were we to look for pro tection from whatever violation of law it might occur to Gov. Warmoth to commit if not to the strong arm of the Federal Government? Comte now, Messrs. Reid and Dana, consider this point calmly, and then discuss the Lnuisiana question with a little more justice and moderation. TOE EDUGATIONAL PEOSPEOT. Hon. Wm. G. Brown, the recently elected State Superintendent of Pub lic Education, has entered upon the discharge of the duties of his office, and assumed the grave responsibility of directing the system devised by a Republican Legislature for the educa tion of the youth of Louisiana. We have waited with some concern for the first official action that would seem to indicate Mr. Brown's future course, for we were anxious to know whether he was likely to continue the excellent application of the school law inaugurated by his predecessor, or branch off into some new theories that would prove inimical to the cor ner stone of our liberties and prosper ity-education of the rising genera tiwi.. We felt relieved when we learned that the new Superintendent had expressed a determination to re tain as his assistant Mr. M. C. Cole, the gentleman who occupied the same position under Mr. Conway, former Superintendent. To Mr. Cole's great ability and indefatigable energy is due much of the success achieved by Mr. Conway in his administration of the school laws, and Mr. Brown will have in him an invaluable adviser and assistant. With a liberal minded Republican journalist at the head of the educa tional bureau, and an experienced Republican educator to counsel and aid him, the prospect for a beneficent administration of the educational de partment of the State Government is indeed encouraging. However long and bitterly de feated aspirants for office and the more partizan newspapers of Louis iana may continue their denunciation of the means employed to secure the installation of a Republican State Government, it must Ye apparent to an observing mind that there is a growing determination visible among the cool-headed and reasoning men and newspapers that supported the Fusion party, to accept the situation and acquiesce in the recognition of the Federal Government so plainly in dicated by extending the strong arm of the military to support the ruling of the U. S. Circuit Court. Every week our exchange mail brings some new convert to the doctrines of the CHIEF, which are dictated by plain, unassuming common-sense and a con cientious opinion of what is best afor our State and her people. THE POET'S CORNER.-In order to increase the attractions of the CHIEF we have added a new feature with the new year, in the shape of a " Poet's Corner," which will always be located in the first column of the fourth page, and will contain each week two or more choice selections from the car rents poetical productions of 'the times. We should be happy to receive and publish meritorious original con tributions from some of our readers who are poetically inclined, believing such will serve to enhance the pop ularity we air* to achieve for the 1 Corner."

Wood (the foun der and editor of this popular monthly, now in its twelfth volume), makes the following announcement of his policy for the new year: At the commencement of our mag azine we had no idea of confining our selves the use of original matter; but we finally yielded to the advice of literary friends, used no selectionm, and announced a series of eighteen $100 prize stories which were continued regularly for as many months. In addition to paying the highest prices for other contributiqus, we called to our editorial aid some of the best lit erary talent in the country. And yet we have not been able to get the " or iginal" material neccessary to make the work satisfactory. Hence we have remodeled the magazinein accordance with our original plus, and shall henceforth avail ourself of selections from foreign books and perodicals, and present the cream of the best thought concerning the subjects treat ed. The January number now ready, contains the following articles: One Cause of Trouble, by Gail Hamilton; Catherine's Christmasses, by Harriet Prescott Spofford; Co-operative Sto res, by Sidney Hyde; Good Cheer, by E. D. Rice; General William Wirt Colby, by Rebecca Harding Davis; Reading Aloud; Song of the Sordid Sweetheart; The Rooster - Pecked Wife; The Law of Courtship; The House of Mourning; Agostina, the Maid of Sariagosa; Story of the Sand Man; Peace on Earth; Peep: A Frag ment for the Young; Forfeits; The Spider and the Flea; Editorials, in cluding: Remodeling, Holiday Greet ings, Literary Review, Fashions, Housekeeper, Sense and Nonsense, and Love Thoughts of eminent per sons.

Zell's Monthly Magazine is the title of a new publication that has reached us from Philadelphia. This magazine is an illustrated review of literature, science and art, conducted by L. De Collange, LL.D., and published by T. Ellwood Zell. The January num ber is on our table, neat in its get-up, rich in contents, and fully equal in every particular to any of the first class publications of its kind. The subscription price is placed at the very low figure of $2 00 per annum, and sample copies may be had free of cost by addressing the publisher, T. Ellwood Zell, Phildelphia, or 5 Beek man street, New York. No man is too poor to pay $3 a year for a live paper like the CIrEr. Advices from New Orleans, both of a wpbhe a~d pri' e natp lead1 us r to beliIha d~ermin~effo*ill be aioe is tbatasitt on he agtond Monday of this month tai install Mr. r McEnery as Governor of the State by armed fpoce. We should be indeed sorry to see such a thing attempted, but if any of the people of New Or leans suffer themselves to be inveigled by politicians into the gross violation of law and order, we hope they will be so roughly handled by the United States authorities that they will learn a useful lesson for the future. Any resort to mob violence will redound to the certain defeat of the party em ploying.it, and all those who desire the success of Mr. McEnery would" do well to consider the fact coolly and govern &emselves accordingly. General John A. Dix has teen in angurated Governor of New York and promises the people that his shall no be a partisan administration. THE BAL..-The grand bell to be given by the D. 8. C. B. at their ele gant hall next Morday night will with out much doubt be one of the most brilliant affairs that has occurred ii our town for years. The preparations, now most complete, are extensive and ample. The various committees, on arrangements, invitations, receptions, etc., are composed of some of the leading citizens of Donaldsonville, whose connection with the ball is in itself sufficient guaranty that the en tertainment will be of the highest order, both as regards its respecta bility and the facilities afforded guests for enjoyment. Several ladies have volunteered their services to sell tickets for the grand "hop," and a handsome prize is to be awarde4 the lady disposing of the greatest num ber. Tickets are also to be had at all the principal stores in town, and we advise every one of the young men of town-aye, and the old and middle aged as well-to be sure and supply themselves with cards of admission to the D. S. C. B. ball of Monday next. Price of tickets *2 50; ladies admit ted free. List of Letters Remaining in Donaldsonville Poat,-Offce January lt, 1873.
