Office in Crescent Place. " Subscription Price, Three Dollars a Year. DONALDSONVILLE, LA., Saturday, Angust 21, 1875. LOCAL JOTTINGS. Mr. S. M. Fuciche recently opened an ice-house on Mississippi street, adjoining the establishment of Mr. C. W. Rose, and has met with much -encouragement in the venture. Mr. Henry Loeb is having the upper story of his new store completed and .; handsome gallery, supported by iron .posts, extended along the front and the Railroad Avenue side of the build ing. Thanks to Mr. S. M. Fuciche of the mew ice-house for a favor, the like of :which is not to be reedived every -day. A few sich kindnesses go far to ward making this dreary world a right nice place to live in. Phil. Henderson broke into the kitchen attached to the residence of District Attorney Marks, the other night, and was caught in the act. Phil. now fills a cell in the parish jail, awaiting trial before Judge Maher. Arrangements are under way for an .entertainment in the D. S. C. B. Hall Saturday evening, September 11th, under the auspices and for the benefit of Ascension Hook and Ladder Com pany. The programme will be pub lished next week. Members of the Republican Parish Executive Committee are requested to attend a meeting of that body to be held in Donaldsonville on Satur day next, August 28th, at 12 o'clock M., for the consideration of import ant matters. By order of the president. L. E. BEN'rIL.Er, Secretary. I'roperty holders whose names are on the delinquent lists of parish taxes for any of the years from 1866 to 1874 will find it to their interest to read and heed the notice of Fred. Duffel, Esq., District Attorney pro tern., pub lished in another column. A last op portunity is offered, delinquents to settle without incurring costs of suit. Our friends of the AI. E. Church on Iloumas street have decided to erect a steeple upon their edifice, accord ing to the original plan of the build ing. The spire will extend thirty feet above the height of the present belfry, and will add much to the ap pearance of the church. Carpenters are already at work making needed repairs to the building, and as soon as these are completed the erection of the steeple will begin. BASE BALL.-Of course the game of ball that was to have been played by the Active and Burnside clubs la'st Sunday was postponed on account of wet weather. A note received from the captain of the Assumption nine to-day conveys the information that the Actives will come to Donaldson ville on Sunday, the 28th inst., if the weather is favorable, and they will find the Burnsides ready and anxious for the fraternal trial of skill on the diamond field. Beverly Willis, a well known col ored citizen of the fourth ward of this parish, was severely cut in the left wrist Thursday evening, by a chisel. Ile and a fellow workman were en gaged in making agate, and Beverly was holding a piece of timber while his companion handled the chisel and mallet. Beverly's hand slipped under thechiseljust as the mallet descended. lie was weakened considerably by loss of blood, but the wound with ,care will not be dangerous. We will get that steamboat matter right after awhile. Capts. Dalferee and Aucoin have not formed a part nership, strictly speaking, but an ar rangement has been effected whereby rapt. Dalferes will have the use of .he .machinery of the Lizzie Hopkins for the new boat which he is having built for the Bayof Lafourche trade. We feel assyred that this statement Af the case is about correct, as we get it from first hands instead of the nu 'eliable public rumors that have been -ur authority for previous "yersioins. Alderman Ferrier left for New Or Feausonu a steamboat Thursday night to present to the Acting Governor a -opy of the proceedings of the Council jn the case of Constable Sullivan, and Ike will nige executive action upon tihe resolution asking Sullivan's .e jnoval. As Governor Antoine speaks french fluently, there is no doubt he will be able to comprehend Mr. Fer ;rier's prolific discourse without much ptfort. The Constable went down the same day on the cars, to plead for retention in office, and it remains to be seen which had the longest pole zo knock the persimmons. The daily rains continued until Thursday when the skies cleared off and fine weather was vouchsafed us Thursday and Friday. Early this morning a slight shower fell and the hazy clouds obscured the sun. We hear of some damage to corn from the copious rains, but it appears :wither general or serious, and the yield will be very large under ordinarily favor able circumstances from now until harvesting time. Reports from all directions show the same encourag ing indications for a line sugar crop. What our planters have most to fear, are the prognostications of an early winter, but we hope they may find themselves prepared for the emer gency. Paul Dandridge id one Riley, both colored men, qaarreled upon the plantation of M'lle La Ferriere, As sumption parish, Wednesday morn ing, and from words camine to shot guns, loaded with duck-shot. The men fired simultaneously and each icceived wounds. Five shot lodgedl in Dandridge's forehead, just peIe trating the skinl ; Riley was severely hurt in the hand and two or three of the shot entered his body. The latter was more seriously huit than his antagonist, but neither nien are in a dangerous condition. Dandridge is employed as a laborer on the Pey tavin plantation, j nst below I)onald aldsonville, where lie is now lying. A warrant was issued for his arrest, but the attendant physician gave a certificate that it was not advisable to have him moved at present. Some time during September - about the 25th, we learn - an excur sion will be made to Thibodaux under the auspices of Rev. Thos. Kennedy, pastor, and a committee of members of the M. E. Church of this town, as follows: Nathan Hays, chairman; Mrs. Susan Fobb, Mrs. Delia Davis, Mrs. Harriet Armand, Mrs. Zennon Verrett, Mrs. Comfort Bush; Mrs. Virginia Harrison, Miss Adele Rich ardsoi, V. C. Cantrelle, Robert Bent Iey, C. D. C. Bryant, Aaron Hill, Na than Ross, John Philip, Jos. A. Duf fiI. The party will leave here from the head of Claiborne street, either in a steamer or a flatboat, and proceed down the Bayou to Thihodaux, wheie a day will be spent in frolicking. The amusements will include a grand con cert. Every arrangement essential to the comfort and enjoyment of the all will be made, and a pleasant time is assured those who participate in the excursion. Tickets have been placed at 81 each, chihdred under 12 years half price, anid the proceeds will go to the church fund. We were surprised to learn yester day that a meeting had been held at the Court-House last Saturday night for the purpose of electing officers of the Fourth Ward Lincoln Republi can Club to serve for the ensuing year. We had previously had no knowledge of the meeting and no in timation that the project for such an early reorganization was on foot. Senator Landry, who was re-elected president of the club, informs us that the meeting had been called for the previous Saturday evening, but the attendance was so small that it was decided to postpone the gathering a week, and committees were consti tuted to inform the Republicans of the ward of the time and place of as semblage. The persons to whose lot it fell to perform that duty in D)oni aldsonville either bungled it sadly or neglected it altogether, as they wholly ignored the CHIEF OfficeC ald failed to inform several active Republicans that we know of. We presume there was no intentional slight, however. The club meeting was well attended and the proceedings highly satisfac tory. The following officers were elected : Hon. P. Landry, president; Messrs. H. O. Maiher, first vice pres ident; Robt. Noel, second vice pres ident; L. E. Bentley, recording sec retary ; Fred. Fobb, corresponding secretary ; Louis Lefort, treasurer ; Jacob Bailey and Jean Louis, ser geants-at-arms. The meetings of the club will occur on the first Saturday of each mouth, as was the custom last year. SEIZURES OF PROPER'TY FOIL BACK TAXEs.-Notwithstanding the repeat ed admonitions of the State Auditor, the Police Jury and others interested in a prompt and full collection of the revenue of State and parish, the Tax Collector of Ascension has dellaycd seizures for back taxes month after month, in the hope that delinquents would relieve him of the unpleasant duty. p)nly a small prioportion of these parties have responded to ur gent andl frequent warnings of seiz ure, and justice to those wiro Iay their taxes demands that the provis ions of the laws be invoked against recalcitrants. The parish treasury is in a woful state of bankruptcy, owing to the large amounts of uncollected taxes outstanding, and as a Iproposi tion for the levy of a special tax to clear off the indebtedness is soon to be laid before the people, it behooves the officials entrusted with the collec tion of taxe's to exhaust every possi ble meanr of reducing the amiount of the debt. To these ends the sceizure of property has been inaugurated, and will be prosecuted without fear or' favor until eve;ry possible dollar of delinquent tax, State and parish, is recovered. Six adv'ertisements of seizures appear in to-day's CHIEF, to which will be added several others in nI extra edition of the paper to, be issued on Wednesday or Thlursday ,of next week. This extra edition is ren devr'd necessary lby the legal reqFire ment that a tax a-le shall be allvcr tised three separate titmtt within ten days. In each succn-eive is'sue of tth CuIEF hereafter, new sale' will t p pear, and two editions will hie ,liuted every week until further notice. VIRGIL POWERS CAPT'LcEIi).--\irgil Powers, the man who stole Mr. 1). F. Kenner's blooded mare fromll Ashland plantation, during the night of the 1st instant-and who, by the way, is not a colored man, as we stated, but white, and a resident of East Baton Rouge parish-was captured in a corn field about three miles above Port Hudson, Sunday morning, August 8th, by Messrs Ilubbs and Gayle, cit izens of East Baton Rouge. These gentlemen tracked and discovered the mare, which was at once returned to the Ashland place, then struck the trail of the thief and followed him until a favorable opportunity aft' bfoded for his capture. They crept upon him as lie lay asleep, and pre senting their shot-guns, demanded a surren(ler, which the astoni.~hied mil efactor promptly accorded. The cap tors delivered their prisoner to the authorities at Baton Rouge and lihe was placed in jail there. We sup posed that he would be brought to this parish at once, but hlie has not put in an appealiance yet, and the delay may indicate that lie will be held in Baton itonge to answer a charge of holse stealing prefeired against him about three years ago, and for which he escaped punishment by breaking jail and making tracks for parts unknown. A few weeks since lie reappearedd in his old haunts and promised if let alone to lead an honest life. lie was not molesteld, but a close watch kept upon his ac tions, with the result above noted. He will hardiy escape tile vengeance of the law this time. We learn this mnorning that Mr. Hubbs has written to Sheriftl Iill for authorization to bring the prisoner to Ascension, and the request has been complied with, but the Baton Rouge authorities have declined to give uilp Powers. This seemslll to confirm the supposition that lie will be held to answer the old charge. TIIE DoG-IOIS.ONING CASSE.--n peachmcnt of the Town Constable.--By reading the Council proceedings in to-day's CImIEF, our patrons will in form theumselves of the action taken by that body in the Constable case of Sullivan, charged with obtaining money from the town under false pre tenses. Wednesday evening the ('Con cil constituted itself a board of inqllii ry, or a sort of high court of impeach ment, and after going through the forms of a trial in which the judges, jurymen and most importan t wit nesses were combined in the self same personages, impeached the Constable of misdemeanor in office and adopted a resolution petitioning the Governor for his removal, T'he Town Attornev conducted the prosecution, two well known local lawyers appearing for the defense, and the amount of law and logic that was laid before the municipal fathers would have done justice to a case of much greater magnitude. We doubt if the spirit of Blackstone himself, possessed of the eloquence of an Evarts, could have saved the accused from conviction, however, for it was evident from the beginnilng of the tryl that some of the Coauncillnen were morally conl vinced, from the evidence of their own senses, of the guilt of the Con stable, and prl'obably no test imony tha t, could have been introiliced would have served to change the con vic:tion. One f.aturn of this case should be imentioned in j.ustice to accused : lie proved by competent testimony tihe killing of at least one-half the nium ber of dogs charged fiir; but he failed to establish the burial of the same, and interment forms an essential part of the work for which he demanded and received compensation. It may Ie, as has been the case in one or two instances heretofore, that the dray men intrasted with the burial of the defunct canines dumiped them into the river or bayou, a wholly illegal proceeding which the charitably dis posed can ascribe to ignorance, the less lenient to laziness, and the 1n relenting to a wilful if not malicious intention to contravene the law. Whether such disposition of the car casses was made or not, it is certain there was thlse testimony given rel ative to the matter, and the parties who gave it have placed themselve.s in a very serious position, being liable to prosecution flr per:jlry. The Con stable is a young man lpossessing good qInalificatiins for his position, and hisi service, barring the lmisdemeanlor or indiscretion with which lie is now ar raigned, has been reasonably faithful and efh'ctive. lie went to New Or leans Thursday with a written state ment of hiis case to I; li bef ore ActinIg Governor Antoine amad if that otlicial deemsnl it advisable to overlook the attair, we are Confident y(lounllg Sl livan will Im:tkle anll xcclllent Conistable andi avoid in thlie futire suhnell ista~kes as the oue which has placed his of ticial head in chlanlcerv.
