PERSONAL.-Mr. Marx Israel re turned from the North Tuesday, much recuperated in boilth by his trip, and was welcomed home by his friends-that means every body in this section of constry.

G. Wil anson, secretary; J. J. Leche, treas urer; Joseph Leoroix, steward; the secretary and treasurer bei'g desig nated as the finance committee. The members in attendance all expressed a determination to adhere to the club as long as a "nine" can be mustered, and those who enter the diamond field against them this season will find them as hard to beat as here- 1 tofore. The long looked for occasion is near at hand when the friends of the Donaldsonville Amateur Dramatic and Lyric Association can Attest their appreciation of the efforts of that or wanization to afford pleasing and in structive entertainment to the people of this vicinity. A performance for tAe benefit of the association will be given at the D. S. C. $. Hall, Satur day evening, September 26th, when a French opera and English farce will constitute the main features of the programme. Tickets can be had at all the principle stores in town and of members of the association for fifty cents each. After neariy two weeks of idleness our robbers have " broken out in a fresh spot," and are at their nefarious business again. Wednesday night an attempt was made to break into the store of Mr. Henry Loeb. Half a dozen auger holes were bored in the front door, and it is presumed the would be burglar was frightened from his work by some one's approach, else he must eventually have suc ceeded in effecting an entrance. Sev eral citizens are keeping nightly watch with the hope of capturing the marauders who have been so au dacious of late in their operations, and the Mayor has been requested to appoint a regular patrol for the pro tection of property from the raids of these bold thieves. REGISTRATION.-The registration of voters has progressed so far to the satisfaction of every body, and there I is no warrant for supposing it will not continue so. At the close of business last Saturday evening, 827 names appeared upon the registration books, and of these 619 were colored and 208 white. On Monday the Su pervisor and his clerks established themselves at the store of Mr, B. * Mollere, third ward, where they re mained until Wednesday evening. 1 Thursday morning found them in 1 Smoke Bend, near Mr. Henry Cook's. r store, and there they will hold forth C .until 7 P.

Dominique, Dominque's o landing, first ward; and Friday and l Saturday, the 18th and 19th insts., at 1 Mr. Wm. S. Little's store, same ward. a The Republicans of the first and sec- t op4 wards have all been notified C when and where they will have op portualty to procure certificates, and they will rally to a mate and give the Supervisor and his assistants abund ance of labor during their brief so journ at the points above enumer ated. SORRO*S OF THr DISOONTE1(TED. It seems that yesterday was the date fixed upon by the 5' )ane Republi cans,"-as the disaffected call them selves-for the holding of their parish nominating convention, though we were not aware of the fact until ad vised: of the departure of the fourth ward delegation, headed by Judge Cheevers, for the Washington School house, in tho-fifth ward, which had been selected for the place of mdeting. Our information in .relation to the affair is limited, but from the reports which have reached us we infer that our misguided friends had any thing but a lovely time over the river. It is said the attendance of delegates was very slim; that the fiflh ward faihful refused at the last mooent to have any thing further to do with the movement; that the second and third wards contributed but one man each, the seventh none; that school director Hill refused to allow the use of the school-house as a place of meeting and the unfortunates were compelled to repair to John Cantey's old barn, where they had to stand up for want of chairs or benches; and, finally, that after an acrimonions der bate the convention broke up in con fusion without accomplishing any thing. Certain it is that the parties who went from here came back look ing any thing but cheerful, and while the accounts of the affair which we have heard may be erroneous, still we have little doubt the persons most interested in this convention were sorely disappointed at the results of its session. We shall asedrtai full particulars of the affair and publish them next week. Tns NEw Tnu a.-The members t of Ascension Hook & Ladder Com; I pany are happy, for their splendid C new truck arrived by the Tete, Tues- d day morning, and is now eseonced t in its temporary quarters in the t wharf building. We do not wonder V that they are proud of the little I beauty, for it is in all respects a first- t glass ecimen of architecture,. and e preseas an appearance as natty as t my truck we have ever seen in the is Ith of March processions in New Or- P sans, The builder has certainly a tarried out his contract faithfully, t] wihle the painter actually "spread 91 iimself" in adorning and beautifying ii he structure when it was placed in li The Hook &z Ladder Company as sembled at the landing Tuesday, about noon, andlafter considerable difficulty succeeded in getting the truck safely ashore. A long rope was then attached of which all hands took bold, and away went the boys down the front street in fine style with their new treasure, the music of its swinging bells falling pleasantly upon their ears and the admiration of the people assembled along the route to the wharf filling their hearts with pardonable pride and gratifica tion. The christening of the track will not take place until the company is uniformed, which will probably be late in October or early in Novem ber, and this interesting ceremony will doubtless be the occasion of a grand parade of the " Donaldson. ville Fire Department," In the interim the Ascension boys will have frequent practice meetings to perfect themselves in the art of manipulating the truck, handling and mounting ladders, etc., in order that the first fire may find them prepared to do effective service as protectors of property. The initial reunion for the purpose of practice will take place to-morrow, and the Market- i House will be the objective point of attack. A REPORTED MISALLIANCE, Confusion Worse Confounded--The Baton Rouge Mixture Eclipsed, There was a gathering of leading spirits of the Combination-title party of Ascension at the office of a firm of leading attorneys, in this town, on Wednesday, and numerous are the rumors afloat regarding the purpose of the consultation. The fact that a couple of officials professing to be Republicans were admitted to the confab, has given rise to the report that, besides " embracing the Dem ocrats, Conservatives, Reformers, Liberals and White Leaguers," our t local Bleached Man's party leaders are about to throw their arms around the necks of the sorehcad Republicans of the parish and make common cause with them against the regular Repub lican organization aud candidates. I The basis of this proposed affliation of heretofore incegruous elements has not, according to all accounts, been yet determined upon, but the following are two of the plans alleged to have been considered 1. The Universal. Embracers to give their support to an out-au-out Sorehead parish ticket in consider ation of the Sorehead vote being cast for the Bleached candidates for State Treasurer, Congressmen and Senator. This is supposed to have been a Sorehead proposition and to have proved unacceptable to the party of the first part. 2. The parish ticket to be framed thusly ; Members of the House, Par ish Judge and a Police Juior or two to be selected by the Embracers. Sheriff, Coroner and t'other Jurors to come from the Sorehead ranks. Em bracers to support Sorehead Senator, Soreheads to embrace the bleached Treasurer and Congressman. This plan is accredited to the United Pale Faces, who suggested that a Tenderhead could " see Kel logg," assure hini that the two can didates for the House were "all right" and 'much preferable to the " niggers" nominated by the Re publicans, and thus gain the favor of the administration for the combina tion ticket which it was hoped would win a prize in the Louisiana lottery drawing to take place November 2nd. It is presumed that the Irritated de murred to this arrangement, because it would leave their first and sixth ward aspirants for the House out in the cold, which treatment those I# dividuals would, to a moral certainty, vigorously resent. It will be observed that in the prop osition supposed to have qmanated from the Combined Whitewashed,, they demnand both members of tilt House, and we suspect if the truth were known it would be found that they would sooner condedr all tite remaining officers than forego their claim to these. The all absorbing desire of the White League party of this State is to secure a majority in tlhe House of Representatives which will enable them to displace Gov. Kellogg, thus opening the way for the installation of the McEnery gov- i ernment, and the thorough destruc tion of the Republican party of Lou isiana. And if the Leaguers find op portunity, by combining with dis affected Republicans, to strengthen s themselves in the House of Repre- ' sentatives, we doubt if they will hes- r itate to "go back" on their *Baton Rouge declarations and support even the most incompetent " niggersi" for a parish offices, knowing that it will be a very simple matter to oust them a when McEnmery is installed as Gov- I t ernor. We can not at present surmise Z whether our White Leaguers and malcontent Republicans will be joined b in political wedlock or not, and we R are wholly indifferent upon the sub- Y ject. Their trades will not affect the a success of tho Republican ticket, but will be likely to increase the major ities of our canditates by forcing Into the regular ranks the few true Re- .a publicans who are now among the it discontented. There is a baker's dozen of avowed Republicans here who seem to make a business of being soreheaded pretty N much all the time. If they iniagine w there is enough League strength in the parish to put their champions in to offices which Republicans have de- L nied them, and if the Leaguers sup pose these sorcheads can drag any j body but themselves into affiliation with a party which is founded upon race prejudice and proscription, thenJ there is a huge case of misplaced con Ildence developing in our midac. A We shall watch its progress with interest and anticipate lots of fun at bthe denouemen t. 1 Died.
