Doa aldsonville to New Orleans and return. We are glahu to learn that Hon. F. P. Pochd of St. Jamlies has returned from his trip to Saratoga in excellent health. T. W. Brown, Esq., Justice of the Peace of the.tenth ward, has been ap pointed a Notary Public by the G(ov ernor. Some people charge that Nick of the Woods canme out of the dismal swamps last week and raised the big storm. If so, Nick must be a clinker. It is said that, during the recent storm, a colored minister up the river hugged a willow tree so tightly to prevent him from being blown away, that lie rubbed all the bark oft. Tilhe promate term of PIarish Court lhas lapsed. There was no business on the docket, hence the court was not opened last Monday pursuant to the adjourn ment of the week previous. The lot in Port Barrow seized to satisfy judgment in the suit of Dr. Vandegriff vs. Manuel Fnentez was sold by Colistable White of the second ward, last Saturday, at public auction. JIr. Henry G. Parker was the purchaser, his hid being $97 50" Mr. J. C. Colield, in whose honor the Cofield Guards were named, will accom pany that command to New Orleans this evening. The Guards will be mustered in as Battery C. of Orleans Artillery to morrow, at the arsenal of the regiment. A rumpus occurred among several deckhands on the steamer W. P. HIalli day, last Sunday morning, while she was lying at the 1)onaldsouville wharf, and one of the men was cut in the back with a pocket knife. The wound was not Neveree. A meeting of the 1)emuocratic-Conscrv ative Parish Executive Committee was cheld yesterday at the office of R. N. Sinms, Esq., and resolutions adopted calling an election for delegates to a parish conven tion, fixing the time for the latter body to meet, etc. These resolutions are pub lished in another column. The Y. M. C. A. excursionists leave for New Orleans at 10 o'clock A. M. to-day. Several hundred tickets have been sold and the excursion party will 1be a large one. Blesides those wJ.o embark here heavy reinforcements whil be received ill St Jaines. The low price of tickets- only $1-places the pleasure of a trip to New Orleanls within the reach of almost everylbody. We had the pIlasure of a call, Wed.tes day, front Mrs. M. 1'. Bartholomuew, the agreeable lady agent of the Southern Publishing Company of New Orleans, an advertisement of which appears else where on this page of the CtLm.F. The purchasing agency established ill con nection with the company's other busi ness is a reliable and valuable feature, which will commend itself to those who ,desire to procure articles from the city without incurring the expense of a per sonal visit there. N ARRow E iCA.-While the storm of Monday before last was at its halght, Mr. Thos. Love, one of the ae penbkrs oon the Mt. Houmas plantation, mounted to ý' the roof- of the sngar-shed and for an hour or two endeavored to ,secure the iron roofing so that the wind would not carry it off. Within a few moments af ter he descended the shed was blown down and crushed to pieces. Y A difficulty poetarred on the Waterloo º s plantation in the sixth ward, Sunday - night the 31st of August, between Henry Mayweather and Tom Brown, colored i men, in which Mayweather was danger it ously cut with a razor, the gash extend ing across the face, shoulder, and down' 1 w the arm. Brown was also cut on the arm and body, but the weapon used to inflict the wounds was a pocket knife, and he is not dangerously hurt. The re- t covery of Mayweather, on the other 1 hand, is doubtful. Brown is under ar- h rest. d y Take Notlee. Needed in every household. Send twenty-five cents in postage stamps for Y' sample. Agents make from $5 to $10. per day.

Upon his return from the Insane Asy " lumn, last week, Coroner Sullivan was accompanied by Elphege Landry, the yoiung man who became insane last No vembier from the combined eOffects of an s attack of yellow fever and the threat ened loss of several humndred dollars of trust funds which he had borrowed for the purpose of investing in a business venture. We are glad to hear that the young man has been fully restored to reason. The joy with which his friends and relations welcome his recovery and return is better to be imagined than de scribed. MILITARY ExcURnloN.--Or two mili tary companies, the Cannoneers of Don aldsou and Cofield Guards, have made arrangeme~nts to visit New Orleans to getlher for the purpose of participating in the parade of State troops to-morrow, " the 14th inst. To this end they have en S+.ggetha sleEial urain which will leave l)onaldsouville this evening at half past 6 o'clock, arriving in New' Orleans at 10 n P. M. Returning, the party will leave i. the city early Sinday' evening reaching home at a timely hour. There will be I no delay on the route, hence the train will have a quick and pleasant run. Preparations have been made for the ac conimodation of civilians who may wish IC to acomlpany the excursion and witness ,s the grand pageant of the 14th, and tick If ets for the round trip will be sold at the low rate of $2 each. These tickets may be procured at the R. E. Lee Hotel, Mrs. M. Israel & Co.'s, Jos. Gondrau's and other stores, or from any officer of the ~,CanuO('Neers or IGuarrds. CoRInoiOleers or 'IIards.

Accord ing to the Jewish calendar this anniver sary falls on the first day of Fishri, which is the seventh month. The IHe brews recognize two New Years: 1. Rosh IIashanah, the day jest mentioned ; 2. Rosh Iashanah Laelonoth, or new year for the trcs, which is in February, sig niifying that the trees gain new life at that time and that a new epoch then be gins for the plants. Thie latter, how ever, is not celebrated by any religious ceremon.n. Concerning the first month of the year, Nissan, it is the beginning of a political year, for in it the Israelites left Egypt; while on the Rosh HaVshanah, or New Year's day, God created the world. The latter, then, is the beginning of the real and religious year. So far as con cerns religions affairs, the Hebrews al ways count from the Hebrew month, but in citizens' life they use the aera rtlgala. On the 17th inst., in-the evening, the holiday begins with a solemn service in the synagogue, which will be repeated the next morning at 9 o'clock. Edward Smith, the colored man who shot and nearly killed Mr. L. A. Landry, in this parish on the 8th of March, 1879, and who was tried in the District Court last .June. found "not guilty by reason of insanity" and committed to the State Insane Asylum at Jackson, is reported to he one of the most tractable patients in that institution. His conduct has been uniformly that of a sane person, we sin derstand, indicating what the CHIEF contended at the time of the trial-that his alleged insanity was, at most, noth ing but temporary and partial aberration resulting from excessive indulgence in liquor, and that there was no evidence to warrant the conclusion of the jnury that at the moment of the shooting he was laboring under such a degree of mental derangement as to make him ob livious of the character :.f the crime he was committing. It is understood that Smith will be released from custody at an early day, as his condition will not justify his retention in the Asylum. His narrow escape from the penitentiary should prove a strong inceutive to good behavior when he regains his freedom, and to he well behaved, it is essential that he should give liquor a widle birth. th, Ward News. Storm Toples-Esttaiated- Damage to the A Cane Crops--Barrow Es.epe of Two o Luggermen from Drowning. a Aqcaxssqi, Sept. 4, 1879. SDas Cumar: b The great storm of the-gst instant is A the universal topic: of discnesion, and to people are busy everywhere repairing of the damage to buildings and fenc8s. r There is much talk and much difference or o of opinion concerning the amount of in- of y jury to the cane. Some planters estimate cc y the loss at one-third, others at one-half; j, d the latter, I think, is about right. If we B sh eould have rainy weather from now to re ý- October, the cane will more than proba- , n bly start a new growth mid cause the ti e saccharine to go into the sprout-then e o three-fourths will be lost to a certainty. at During the storm a lugger was per- to ' ceived in the middle of the river, upward re br ound, almost flying before the terrific at gale. When opposite Welcome store, the cc craft slowly capsized, and two men were noticed clinging to the wreck. Their it d death seemed inevitable, but as they in were passing V.ilow Dominique's they struck out bravely `nd swamin ashore hi SUpon reaching the bank they manifested of their joy by kissing the ground and m "talking Digo" at the rate of forty-five tl miles an hour. The poor fellows were so ° furnished with dry clothes by kind spec- ol r tators of their mishap and were escorted o1 to the store of that Christian gentleman, cc Mr. C.N. Lewis, where they were wel- re comed and made comfortable. The lug- cl ger, which was named DeSoto, was re blown across the river and lodged against the left bhank, where it was subseqiuently s1 1 recovered and righted by the owners. at The craft was anchored at Kenner's land- w ing when the storm began, but the force ti of the gale tore it from its fastenings and it left it at the mercy of wind and waves. at There were three men on the boat at this gi time, but one of the number jumped th y overboard and succeeded in reaching p shore, while the others concluded to stick of to the lugger and endeavor to save her. sli Quite a sensation was created lately at in this vicinity by the advent of a beau- p1 tiful and accomplished blonde from New tr is Orleans. She was the recipient of sev- Ib e eral musical soirees, but your corres- d, - pondent being invited to stay at home b: i and twist thorn tree by the roots, can p, b- not give particulars.

DAVIS, Teacher third ward school. e A couple of typographical errors oc n curred in last week's issue of the CInIEz 1 which require explanation and correc tion. In the opening paragraph of our article on the storm, a blunder in proof correcting caused us to say that " The wind at first came north from the east," when what we intended to say was, "The wind at first camne from the north east." Wind blowing at a right angle would he a phenomenon indeed, suaver sive of all natural laws with which the human mind is as yet familiar, and the editor of the CHIEF relinquishes to " Ye Intelligent Compositor" all the glory or t notoriety that may attach to the an nouncement of such a discovery. Again, in the local-notice relative to the depart ure of Mr. John P. Harp, he was spoken of by the compositor as having been known as "the youngest and most enter prising store-keeper in Donaldsonville," while the editor had degignated him " the youngest and one of the most en e terprising store-keepers in Donaldson ville." It was not our intention, while t complimenting our young friend Mr. t Harp, to reflect in any way upon the other enterprising merchants of the the town. Whether the perverse manip ulator of types who perpetrated such a 1 reflection, did so innocently or with mal I, ace aforethought, is a mystery only to be l solved in the dark and dismal recesses of his inner consciousness. Called tow AeO t . eI A Baptist C mmIeI to Mt in Doaldib ine-Rev. lera3 e $oblr rasa's.i I bebavior I. be avestigated. ' Acting under authority. vested in him I by the State Convention;of. the Baptist 1 Association, Rev. George Armstead, pas- a d tor of the Bright Morning Stay Church g of Napoleonville, has called a council of 4 m ainisters to assemble in Donaldsonville 1 e on Monday next, the 15thinstant. Among 1 - other matters to be considered by this I ' council, we believe, is the case of Rev. a ; John Ashby, late pastor of the Nazarene a 'e Baptist Church, who the applied for a ° rehearing of the charges under which he 1 was deposed from the ministry, and also a 1e the case of Rev. Spencer Roberson, pres n ent pastor of the Nazarene Church, whose 9" adulterous misdeeds have made him no r- torious in this vicinity. We presume the .1 reverend backslider and his. supporters c are exerting themselves to meet this ae council with manufactured and Sup me pressed evidence, if they propose to meet ir it at all; for there seems to be a deter y ruination among some of the leading ` spirits of his congregation to stand by e° him at all hazards and in utter disregard of every consideration of decency and ad morality. We can not believe, however, re that any assembly of faithful and con re scientious pastors will condone such an - offense as Mr. Roberson has committed d or allow themselves to be cajoled with " concocted and false testimony. Such a result would be a scandal upon their church which every true Baptist would s regard with shame and regret. it The CaIEF has no further purpose to Y subserve in this matter than to vindicate s and defend the cause of public morality, which is one of the highest privileges of e the press. In pursuance of this object, d it is our legitimate prerogative to expose B. and denounce all false teachers of reli is gious and moral doctrines who debase d their high estate by low and criminal g practices. 'this we have done in the case k of Rev. Spencer Rolberson, and this we r. shall do with regard to those who are y attempting to bolster him up, if they - presume to carry their defense to the ex W tremity of bearing false witness in his V- behalf. We never have felt the slightest e- degree of personal animosity towards the se backsliding minister--on the contrary, en prior to the exposure of his crooked ways, 11 we always spoke of him kindly, treated Le him with the utmost consideration and it regarded him as a worthy and reputable spiritual instructor--but the interests of the colored people demand that their ministers shall be men of correct habits and pure morals, and as a friend of their ' welfare and advancement we could not consistently pursue a different course from that we have taken. That we have 'C published only the truth about, Spencer e- Roberson is shown by the fact that he 1g does not, can not and dare not resent the publication or seek to vindicate him self in a legitimate way. He knows that he is guilty and his most zealous friends know it, and we have been incorrectly informed if he hasueot committed similar 3, offenses in several other localities where he was employed as a pastor previous to his advent here. The New Orleans Erangelist, organ of the Baptist Convention of Louisiana, copies our editorial article of week be fore last relative to the Roberson scan - dal, and comments as follows: We with much sorrow of htrt give n- publicity through our columns to this 11, outrageous act. Sorrow, not because we wish to-conceal or countenance such deeds of darkness and wickedness, but in because of the terrible blow that it gives religion and the stain thatit leaves on th ininistry'; and because of the banc~hl ifnteage it will leave on the mind 'f the whald and the distrust it will create and foster in the minds of Sthe rising emeration. Blint we rejoice in truth and light. * * We'hbelieve ys we are suffering thie consequencee of Slightly esteeming thie work of ordaining men for the christian ministry. This - providential indication is eqhivalent to es voice from the liying God saying, "If 19, you ordain ien not qualified,. you will Rsuffer for it." suffer for it." More About Edict No. 1. DONALDSONVILLE, Sept. 9, 1879. EDITOR CHIEF: The occurrence to which I called your attention some time ago, has created more public comment than I had antici pated. There are many more proofs of the Reverend Backslider's guilt now than when I wrote my last. One thi:.g which particularly attracted my atten tion, was a small but concise circular headed Edict No. 1. One of the parties whose name it limentioned therein, in re ply to the same has come out and de clared that he had always thought him self a fool, but after iundergoing a phren ological examination he found that he is not. The gentleman, if not a fool, has acted the part of one. If he would go to the phrenologist again be will find that he has lost that member of the brain that tends to his sensibility. The Hon. Judge has denied the assertion of Edict No. 1, but we have referred to Thomas Luins & Co., who have proved the facts set forth in the Edict to be undeniable. The Reverend Backslider who has the power to raise mortals to the skies is making private and public confessions of his guilt and defies molestation, with a Justice Court and a militia under the commanhd of the Hon. Judge and Ser geant White, and above all, his cougre gation, who declare that, regardless of the rules of the Baptist Association, they will retain him, and that they appre ciate his examples of immorality and adultery. Some have gone so'far in ex pressing their appreciation of such ex amples as to say that their poor daugh ters are at his disposal. I am, sir, YOURS AT TIMES. When you are depressed by the gaunt, sickly feeling of a disordered system, which needs to be cleansed and stimun lated into healthy action, take a dose or two of AYER'S PILLs and see how quick you can be restored for a shilling.

Su3nIA 0o XScoTrr, BOuDZIo.-The 1 funeral of the late lamentqd Hyacinthe Scott Bondreaux took piaoe last uinday afternoon pisd was attendsd by a very t large con.eurse of pdople, attesting the great a&d general esteem in which the deceased was held in this community. I The coffin was conveyed to the Catholic f Church and theice.to th cemetery on 3 the truck of Ascension Hodk pad Ladder Company, which was appropriately trimmed with mourning. The pall bear ers, six in number, walked on either side 3 of the truck, the Independent Brans Band following; then camie the honorary mem bers of the two fire companies,- Phoenix and Ascension, followed by the firemen - in uniform, walking two by two, the 9 Hooks on the right, Phoenix on -he left. Both dompylies were out in strong force 9 and a lengthy cavalcade of people, -in s vehicles and on foot brought up the rear a of the mournful procession and crowded - the banquettes alongside. After the t usual solemn ceremony at the ehurch the cortege moved to the cemnetery, and as 'I ; the casket containing the remains of our v lamented friend was consigned to the I tomb, the band played a dirge. that I found an echo in a host of sorrowing ] hearts. After the burial the Hook and Ladder Company held a meeting at 1 which a committee was appointed to I prepare resolutions expressive of the 1 deep regret which the members of that s organization feel at the death of their r worthy and much loved comrade. These I resolutions are puiblished elsewhere in to-day's CHIEF. We congratulate our Hebrew fellow I citizens upon the near approach of their f new year holiday, the anniversary, ac cording to religious traditions, of the creation of the world and the beginning I of all things earthly. We trust the auspicious epoch to be celebrated during 1 the coming week will mark the advent of a new era of prosperity to the coun try and community in general and par ticiularly to the worthy class of our pop ulation commemorating the occasion, to 1 whose civic virtues, energy and enter prise is due a great measure of the en viable reputation which our town and parish enjoy for peace, liberality and 1 e advancemlent.
