About two o'cleok this evening at colored man named Frank Lewis i dropped dead whilst sawing wood . near the ferry. Dr. B.

Last 8undapy evening, about five o'clock, the body of a white man was found floating in the river in front of the Lacroix Li. Bateau plontation, be low town. The Coroner was at once notified and held inquest, but nothing regarding the deceased or the circum - stances of his death was ascertained, The body was in a decomposed state that rendered adept tication impossi ble. A nickle five-cent piece was the only thing found in the pockets of the dead man's clothing. for publisam by e g do oe lists **pries e se t ee" *l* t ll O rttelrsof Ien, 1"Yt, 1808, 1809, I8 oasilg.

Thursday, but will throw the genial light of his countesmace upon us again fot a few hours to-faorrow. Our Senator can never wear out his welcome here, for the more the people of Ascension see of him the better they will like him. Instead of heavy and frequent rains we have this week been visited with light and occasional showers that were quite refreshing and not of sufficient duration to ease additional injury to the crops. The intervals of dry weath er have afforded our planters favora ble opportunity to attack with plow and bee the luzaureat growth of grass whieh aprung up during the recent psotieet d wet spell, and it is almost andeseary to saytlat full advantage has been taken of these intervals. We shall endeavor in next issue to pre sent a report of the general condition of the crops of the parish. It is safe to assume that from this time forward the prospect will steadily improve, and a fair yield of sugar, cotton and corn may yet result from this year's labor of the Ascension planter. True to appointment, Major A. K. Arnold of the U. S. A. put in an ap pearance here on Thursday, the 26th, 1 and was met by thirty or forty bounty claimants from this and surrounding parishes. The work of examining ap plicants for the purpose of identifica tion was eatered upon and prosecuted rigorously and with but little inter mission until complete. So searching was this examination that quite a number failed to pass through it sat isfactorlly, hence did not receive the bounty money they expected. These unfortunate parties wore sad looks of disappointment in striking contrast with the buoyant and cheerful aspect of the successful claimants. The amounts paid varied from $90 to $350. Major Arnold finished his labors Fri day and returned to New Orleans. Hon. Gee. B. Loud, Division Supt. of Education for this Division, arrived in town Thursday, and remained un til yesterday afternoon, when he left for Assumption parish to look after the Treasurer of the School Board there, who is alleged to be a defaulter for a large amount. Mr. Loud has made a complete tour of his Division, and from the tone of the newspapers of the various parishes we infer thhat he has been everywhere cordially re ceived and has produced a favorable impression as an official upon the di rectors and others connected with the schools and school government. Mr. Loud will probably pass through town again when lie completes his business in Assumption, and we may be able to glean from him some inter esting particulars regarding the past management of the school finances of our neighboring parish. Moan DROWNED MEN.-Scareely a week passes in which we are not called upon to chronicle the finding of the bodies of one or more persons in the river, and this week has been es pecially prolific of these discoveries. Monday afternoon the bodies of two white men were seen floating in the eddy of the river in front of the La croix place. A colored man procured a skiff and brought one of the bodies to shore, but ere lie could return to secure the other the current had car ried it beneath the surface of the water, and it mould not be found, The body brought to land was that of a man apparently about thirty years of age, who iad the appearance of hav- y lug been a fiatboatman. A new pair 4 of booms fth IWlt WV and lie x was very plainly dressed. Nothing < was found in his pockets and the time m id ela'ekmsahced of his death are s mysteries that the Coroner's jury were I uo&able to uiayvel t In the injunction suit of J. A. Braud, Jr., vs. the several parish au thorities, the bond of petitioner is clearly iunamipt. The bond is made payable to the Parish Treasurer and Tax Collector; the Treasurer's salary is one thousand dollars and the Tax Collector's commission not less than fifteen hundred, while the bond is for only five hundred dollars. Supposing this injunction has the effect of pre venting the collection of parish taxes until next year, thus causing the Col lector to lose the amount of this year's commission, or that the Treasurer can not draw a warrant for his salary, whom have they to look to for dam ages? This five hundred dollar bond is evidently no security to either of then. Again, if any third party hold ing a number of parish warrants is unable, owing to this injunction, to either dispose of them or to turn them in as taxes and they remain a dead loss on his hands, what recourse has he to be reimbursed for the loss lie has suffered I The bond is made pay able to the Tax Collector and Treas urer and, therefore, a third party hasa no right to recover damages upon it. Of course it is premised in the above cases that the injunction wilt he eventually dissolved, for if it is madep perpetual no such questions can arise. Potica JtTr.--The newly consti- a tuted Police Jury met at the Court- 1 House Tuesday. Mr. Henry Cook was elected President by a unanimous f vote, and the Jury at once 1,roceeded i to business. Mr. Reynaud offered a resolution to the effect that no ad- I journment isne die should take place until the exact financial condition of the parish should be ascertained and some means devised to reduce the enormous expense of sustaining the parish government; and the members of the Jury not to charge per diem for the various sessions held in furtherance of this object. This was adopted. Resolution No. 2, also by Mr. Roy naud, required the Parish Treasurer to present a complete report to the Jury Friday, June 27th, and also to obtain from the present Tax Collector the list of delinquent tax payers, and effect a settlement with the late Col lector. Resolution No. 3 provided for the appointment of a committee of three, to be composed of the Parish Attor ney, President of the Police Jury and one member thereof, which committee was authorized and required to make out and publish in the oflicial journal of to-day an approximate list of the contingent expenses of the parish for the current year. The president appointed Mr. Hillery Rice on said committee, after which an adjournment until Friday (yester day) took place. At the session of yesterday the Treasurer's report was received and considered, the new list of contingent expenses submitted by the committee and approved, and a resolution adopted requiring the present and former Tax Collectors to submit to the Jury a complete list of the delin quent parish taxes by them collected. The Jury then adjourned until Mon day, the 30th inst., at one o'clock P. M. As we anticipated, Mr. Felix Rey nand is the leading spirit in the new Police Jury, and he displays coam mendable zeal. in prosecuting the work of reform which has been most auspiciously inaugurated. A GRAND PROOESSION. Twenty-Seventh Anniversary of Pius Ninth's Election (elebrated--Three Bands in Attendance-Orations by two Distinguished Gentlemen. Wednesday, the eighteenth inst., was the twenty-seventh anniversary of the installation of Pius Ninth as Pope of Rome. This event was cele brated with great pomp in all the Catholic churches in this country, and l on Sunday last Donaldsonville wit nessed one of the grandest processions, in honor of this occasion, that has traversed its streets for years. The procession formed in front of i the church about five o'clock in the ; evening, and proceeded up Mississippi street headed by the Ascension Brass 1 Blaud in their elegant band wagon, which had been tastefully decorated with evergreens and flowers by the fair hands of lady friends, and pre ) senbed a very imposing appearance. At intervals of every ten or fifteen t minutes the band favored the listen f erg with a ieautiftl and well ixetinted march. Immediately after th e banA came a htumbat of little boys, "At et icommunicants,5 bearing variona col ored banners; they ere, followed by a group of little girls, also carrying small banners, who made suite a pretty and interesting spectacle. After these came various ladles haying banners with different inseriptions on them, and then the St. Cecite hand, who also regaled the ears of their hearers with choice pieces of music at brief intervals. About the mifldle of the procession walked the Rev. Father 1 Cuppens, beating himself with great dignity, his countenance, the while, wearing a very benificent expression. Then came the remainder of the cortege, who were furnished by the St. Joseph Brass Rand with music that was very pleasant to listen to. The procession moved up Missis sippi street to Lafourche down to At takapas, down Attakapas to Lessard, up Lessard to Mississippi again, and down Mississippi to the new college building in the large lot adjoining the church grounds. At this place there was a stand erected and orations were delivered by Messrs. J. A. Landry and John A. Cheevers. Mr. Landry's oration was in French, and not understanding the language, we were unable to appre ciate it, but judging from its enthu siastic reception by the audience and the orator's impassioned delivery it must have been a very able effort. The English address was delivered by Mr. J. A. Cheevers, and was avery effective piece of oratory; he briefly reviewed the history of Pius Ninth, spoke in glowing terms of his energy and indomitable perseverance, of hisi kindness and impartial charitableness to all ; lie bitterly denounced the conrse of the tyrannical Victor Eman nel, and closed his really excellent discourse by calling on all true Catho lies to support the aged man who, although old in years and fast failing in strength, still persisted in his en deavors to preserve the dignity of the church. The procession then filed into church where the benediction was de livered by the Rev. Father Cuppens in a very impressive manner. The day and pageant will long lin ger as pleasant memories among our Catholic citizens, and may acquire ad ditional interest hereafter as the last annual celebration of the occupancy of the pontifical chair by the presenti incumbent, who has grown very old and very feeble and perchance will prigs away from earth ere another year has rolled around. If so, he will go to the grave full offears and honors, and he sincerely mourned by millions of believers in Catholic faith. Pius Ninth has occupied the position of Pulp(- longer than any pontiff since the days of St. Peter. $1 Card or Thanks. The members of the Ascension Brass Band would respectfully offer their sincere thanks ID to the ladies who so kindly assisted in dec orating their band wagon for the procession in honor of Pope Pius Ninth; they are also under obligations to Mr. J. T. Nolan for the loan of a pair of mules, and to Mr. Leonce Babin for his services as driver. Likewise, they beg leave to tender their grateful ac knowledgments to the Rev. Father Cuppens for the kind and courteous hospitality ex tended to them on the above occasion. J. H. PROFFITT, Secretary.
