DONALDSONVILLE, LA., Saturday, May 4, 1878. LOCAL JOTTING8. See notice of lost pocketbook. A suitable reward will be paid for its return to the owner, at the CHIEF office. Regular meeting of the Ascension Hook and Ladder Company Monday night. The foreman requests us to notify members to attend in uniform, for inspection. There is a movemnent on foot look ing to the mustering in of the Can noneors of Donaldson as State militia. When this is done the company will be entitled to receive new and im proved arms from the State, which will be a desirable acquisition. The ball given by the Cannoneers of Donaldson last Saturday night was not so numerously attended as their previous entertainments, and failed to meet the expectations of the pro jectors in a financial point of view, but it was a very enjoyable affair neyertheless. Mr. Rodolph Brand is having a neat residence erected on Cheti mnaches street, adjoining the resi dence of Mr. Juo. F. Park; the build ing is nearly completed and will com pare favorably in point of neat and stylish workmanship with many of the most pretentious in town. The builders are Messrs. Homer Cire and L. Aimee Richard, while the painting, graining and papering will be exe cuted by that thorough workman, Mr. R. J. Green. About one o'clock last Saturday af ternoon a fight occurred between two young colored men, Adam Tous sant and Eugene Landry, at the Blue Bucket Exchange on Railroad Av enue, resulting from a dispute over a game of dice. Toussaint knocked Landry down and was about to fol low up the advantage when Landry drew his pocket-knife and stabbed Toussaint behind the right ear, pro ducing a painful but not dangerous wound. Landry surrendered himself to the town authorities, but the mat ter has since been amicably adjusted between the parties and it is probable no prosecution will be instituted. The wounded man is doing well, and suffers only shght inconvenience from his hurt. District Attorney Earhart has ta ken advantage of a few days interim in the sessions of the District Court to pay a brief visit to Donaldsonville, and the CHIEF office was this morning illuminated by his genial presence. He will be off for St. James to morrow, as the May term of court for that parish will begin Monday. Ten days or a forthuight hence Mr. Ear hart can be found at his office in this town, in readiness for consulta tion with his clients in civil cases or parties interested in the prosecution of oftenders against the laws. We were pleased to hear the District At torney add his earnest testimony to the accumulating evidence of the emi nent capacity and fitness of Judge Duffel for occupation of the judicial bench. On Thursday next the Canuoueers of Donaldsonville will go into camp pn the left bank of Bayou Lafourche, one mile below town, and on Friday they will engage in target practice. The afair will be a kind of picnic; lady friends of the company will keep refreshment tiables on the grounds, and visitors will be entertained in an agreeable manner. The target shooting will be open to all who de sire to participate, a small en trance fee being required. To the Cannoneer making thu best score a gold medal will be a arilded while to the successful citizen will be given a portion of the money de rived from the entrance fees. Trans portation to and from the grounds will be furnished at low rates by Messrs. Mitchell and Schonberg of the livery stables. THE TOWN ELECTION. Creditable Result of the Municipal Con test-An Excellent Choice of Offloers Made-Tie Vote for Collector. We have delayed the issue of our paper until Sunday for the purpose of giving the returns of the municipal election, and we present the figures with a feeling of profound satisfac tion, inasmuch as the result has ful filled our hope that the most worthy and capable candidates would be successful. Even the failure of the editor to achieve the eminence of an Aldermanic position has no tendency todanupen the gratification with which we view the discomfiture of a ring of 11icksters and wile-pullers who thought themselves able to foist any candidate of their choice upon the people of Donaldsonville, irrespec tive of his character or capacity. We defer further comment until next week and give the figures here with: Polls and Wards..... 1 2 3 Total For Mayor : Frederick Duffel ........105 105 194 404 Robert Noel-............. 1 3 2 6 For Secretary : Gustave Dugas---...-.. 64 58 124 246 Joseph A.

We presume the authorities will be urged to order- a special election to decide the drawn battle for Collector, but s trust they will do no such thing. The people being evenly diyi ded upon the question, we suggest that Gov. Nicholls be given the cast ing vote and thus save us the annoy ance and expense of another election for one petty office. The remains of Mr. Jacques Gab rion-whose death on the 21st inst. was recorded in our last issue-werE brought from Mr. Gabriel Kling'e place, in Assumption parish, to Don aldsonville, the evening of the day of Mr. Gabrion's demise, and lay in the Truck-House of Ascension Hook and Ladder Company until 9 o'clock Monday morning, the 22nd inst., when the funeral took place. Mem. bers of the Hook and Ladder Com pany detailed for the purpose sat with the body Sunday night and un til the hour of burial, fresh details coming on watch at intervals of three hours. The funeral was conducted under the auspices of the company and was everything that could be desired by the friends of deceased. Services were held in the Episcopal Church, Rev. Edward Lewis officia ting, and the procession moved from there to the Protestant cemetery in the following order: 1. Crescent Band; 2. The minister in a buggy; 3. The hook and ladder truck, draped in mourning, bearing the coffin; 4. Members of Ascension Hook and Lad der Company and Phoenix Fire Com pany in uniform; 5. Friends of de ceased in vehicles. A number of per sons followed on the ban quettes, making altogether a large assem blage. The burial service being read and the body consigned to its last resting place, the firemen returned to their respective halls and a commit tee of the Hook and Ladder Company was appointed to prepare resolutions of respect to the memory of their late regretted comrade. These resolutions were published in last week's CHIEF. Mr. Gabrion was a very estimable young man in everj- respect, and his untimely death is mourned by all who knew hihm. His aged parents and other kindred in distant Lorraine will have the melape-!oly satisfaictiou of know ing that, although far away from those endeared to him by tip-; of relationship, his last hours were pomforted by the ministrations of cherished friends and his remains consigned to the tomb with appropriate cerimonies, attest ing the esteem in which he was held among a numerous circle of acquain tances. It was a genuine and a pleasant surprise to us to learn from the last number of the Assum ption Pioneer that our genial and accomplished young friend Alex. S. Landry, Esq., has again joined the legion of Benedicts, having been united in the silken bonds of wedlock to Miss Hel oise Roberta Lawes Carver, daugh ter of Hiram H. Carver, Esq., and one of the most beautiful and accom plished young ladies in the State. The hapdy event was consummated in Napoleonville last week, Rev. Viol lier of Donaldsonville officiating at the marriage ceremony. The affair was conducted in a very quiet and private manuer, the most intimate friends of the groom having no prior suspicion of the imminence of the felicitous change in his mode of life. Alex. passed through town day be fore yesterday, en route to Baton Rouge on a-business trip, and when he stopped at the CIIIEF office to give us a shake of his hand, his new found happiness was betrayed in every lineament of his beaming coun tenance. We tender warmest con gratulations to friend Landry and his charming bride, and bespeak for them all the bliss that can result from the union of loving hearts. PARISH CoUrT.-The April term of the Parish Court closed on Friday of last week, with a clear criminal docket and all civil cases disposed of which the attorneys desired to bring to an immediate issue. Since our last report the only case upon which final action was taken was that of Butler vs. Landry, which was compromised by the parties and discontinued. The case of Rev. John Ashby vs. the Nazarene Baptist Church was fixed for trial on the last day of the term, but owing to the absence of important witnesses it was indefinitely continued. Yesterday a special sitting of the court was held by order of the Judge, for the purpose of trying the matter of the State vs. George Sandling, wherein accused was charged with assault and battery upon Charles Hill, at the Buruside Ascension place. After the testimony of the witnesses for the prosecution had been heard, Parish Attorney Duffel obtained leave from the court to enter a nolle pros., the evidence showing that Hill had been the aggressor in the diffi culty which resulted in his receiving a severe contusion on the head. It was developed during the pro gress of this case that the Justice of the Peace in the first ward had taken cognizance of the matter on Hill's affidavit, and had dismissed the pro ceedings and released accused upon the principals in the affray arriving at an amicable adjustment of their quarrel; that subsequently the case was reopened and Sandling again ar rested and committed to the parish jail, for no other reason than his fail ure to furnish acceptable security for costs. This matter should be investigated by the proper authorities. Such abuses of judicial power have been by nu. means rare in our Justice Courts and it is high time a stop was put to the practice. We do not in tend to condemn the first ward Jus tice unheard, but the opportunity should be afforded him of vindicating his action in this matter in case he is able to do so. Depriving men of their liberty and inflicting upon them the disgrace of incarceration as criminals without due warrant of law is an out rageous proceeding, and one that should be brought to an abrupt and effectual termination. CRAZY MAY.-May has returned. to the parish jail. The reader will readily apprehend that this declara tion can not be intended to refer to the balmy month which began to smile upon us from brilliant skies three days ago. The May referred to in the present instance is Charles May, the flighty individual who has been twice tried before our District Court for starting the fire which de stroyed a wing of Dr. J. C. Legare's residence in January of last year. It will be remembered by those who read the CHIEF that May's first trial resulted in a verdict of guilty ; but that, a new trial being granted, the accused was lucky enough to secure an acquittal. We expressed an opin ion at the time that the jury were influenced in their finding by a belief that the plisoner was not of sane mind, and although same parties fit mnihiat; with the case took occasion to declare their dissent from this view, our position is now confirmed in a great measure by the incarceration of May, last Monday, on the allidavit of Dr. Ikgare affirming his belief of the prisoner's iinsanitj- and pet itio~ninig that the unfortunate man be'sent to the State Insane Asylum. The circumstances of May's return to the Legare' place demonstrate al most conclusively that he is of un sound wind. Mrs. Legare, the Doc tor's aunt, was awakened about 1 o'clock Monday morning by the noise of some one rubbing against the house just ontside her room. The Doctor was informed of the incident and he went out, revolver in hand, to find Charles May, who explained his pres ence there by saying lie had come back to look for some papers lae had left on the place. It was evident that he was either crazy or vic~ious, and in either case a dangerous Vlharacter to be at large, so lie was brought before Judge Maher next day and commit ted to the custody of the Jailor until proceedings shall be taken to deter mine his mental status. It is only fair to say that few, if any, who know May believe him to be a bad man there is little room for doubt as th his insanity, and lie is deserving of pity not of censure; but while we view his conditron with commiserat tion, we feel it necessamy to tl'e safety and interest of the community that lie be placed under such restriction as will prevent him from carrying into execution the wild vagries of an un settled mind. If permitted to go at large there is no telling how soon he might take a notion that it would be a favor to some citizen to burn his house down, as lie did in the case of Dr. Legare. The voice of the municipal candi date is heard in theq laud, and verily it o'ercometh the racket of all other things, even into the wail of the multitude who cry out of hard times. The morning sky is bright with the hue of promise to the hopeful aspirant, but the shades of night will bring deep-dyed sorrow to the hearts of the defeated. " Many are called, but few are chosen."
