BOILER Ex rLosIo,.--U navoidable delay in sending this issue of the CHIEF to press enables us to give brief particulars of an accident that occurred on Gen. Bradish Johnson's Whiitney planltation, in the parish of St. John the Baptist, Saturday eve ning, 20th inst., between the hours of .3 and 5 o'clock. The boiler of an ingine used to run the rice thrasher exploldcd while the hands were en gaged in nioving a pile of sacks of ;ico., rIr. . M. I. Rutledge was knocked ,senseless, having been struck in the face and on one side of the head by some flying missile ; two colored men were injured, one on the breast and the other on the side, and the condi tion of the former was precarious at last accounts our friend Mr. C. D. Middleton was struck on the body anld face by hot ashes and water and :ustained a shock to the nerves of ",is left eye which causes him exerm Liating pain, but will fortupately not he likely to im!pair the sight of the organ. The boiler was canried a dis tance of about one hundred yards by the force of the explosijn, cutting off two posts of the heil. covering the boiler, engine and thrasher, at.d iilorinl a dee' lut in the ground during ai portion of its progress.

TIHE 8lATE B SURER. There is a quantit.y otfbuncombe and very little sense in the outcry a few papers are making over the nac tion of the Constitutional Convention in retaining the lpresent State Treas urer in office four years from next April. MajorBurke was elected Treas urer last November by a majority of over 40,000 votes, and hence he holds the position in pursuance of the will of the people. He was chosen osten sibly for the term of four years, at a salary of $5000 per annum. Three mouths after hel adtaken possesgion of the office, the Constitutional Con vention assembled and reduced his salary to $2000 per annum, to date from January next. As partial re compense for this vigorous applica tion of the pruning knife of retrench ment and reform, the Convention ex tended Mr. Burke's term of office fif teen months. Financially, the account stands thus: Reduction of $3000 per anpaun in the Trossenrers salary for a term of three years,.............. .... 9,000 Donated to the Treasurer, fifteen months of official existence at $2000 per annumn,.............. 2,500 Balance on the wrong side of Mr. Burke's ledger,--..----------............$6,500 The papers which characterize the prolongation of Major Burke's term as a piece of favoritism and injustice, appear to think it would have been perfectly equitable, not only to cut down the salary three-fifths, but to lop three years from the term of ser vice. If there is any thing consistent or fair in such a position, we fail to discern it. The comnplaint of the dissatisfied journals appears to rest solely upon the ground that the retention of. the present Treasurer in office was the result of a compromise between that official and Lieut. Go'. Wiltz, wherein the former gentleman agreed to forego his alleged gubernatorial aspirations in favor of the latter, in considera tion of ;being allowed to remain in office as Treasurer until the general State election of 1884. There -is no charge of incompetency or miscon duct preferred against Major Burke, nor could stch a charge be sustained. He is known to be a careful, efficient and honest officer, and in the several prominent positions of public trust which lie has occi pied during the past eight years, his course has been such as to leave no stain upon his character. As a party man, lie is an invaluable worker and has rendered the Democracy of this State service that deserves a better return than the exhibition of petty malice and oppo sition made towards him by the few newspapers to which we have referred. As we have ilid, but one complaint has been made against Major Burke -rthat of the reported compiomise with Mr. Wiltz; only one gun has been leveled at his devoted official head, and he hits spiked this by pro head, and he Iats spiked this by pro- a posing, through the New Orleans u Democrat, to resign the position of State Treasurer if the Democratic- g Conservative State Convention to b meet in Baton Rouge next month de- ti clares it to be the sense of the party tl that there should be an election for b Treasurer in December. It may be suggested that this mat- p ter is " none of the CHIEF'S foneral," el to employ a slang phrase, and so far E as the political aspect of the affair is I concerned the suggestion is appro- of priate; but we admire fairness in all to things and claim the right to expose tl bigotry and injustice wherever dis played. It is entirely consistent with the uniform attitude of the CHIEF to o recognize the merits of a faithful d officer, irrespective of his political D affiliations, and to resent an untair assault upon him from whatever fe source it may emanate. It is in this fi, spirit that we criticise the course of di the editors who have engaged in an st attack upon State Treasurer Burke which is inspired either by thought- b: lessness or wanton disregard of all C eqlity and fair dealing. A Speaking of a recent reunion of the flu Orleans Artillery, upon the occasion w of the christening of Battery A as the at Wiltz Guards, the New Orleans Petit ti Journal says: fo Parmni les notabilit6 pr6sente oil re-J marquait le lieut.-goav.

The Repub- in licans of Aroyelles, on the other hand, pº are said to be unanimous in favor of J, the constitution, and we believe that, a besides the solid stirength of the De- , mocracy, the new instrument will re- aI ceive the votes of a decided majority of of Republicans. de Chas.

Strong, the present Secretary ofState, is a candidate for re-election and seems to- have .a strong following of friends who sup port his pretensions for a second term. The East Feliciana Patriot-Demo crat is in favor of Mr. E. :L. Fay of that parish for Superintendent of Public Edpcation. If .our Feliciana friends can seculre Lyons for Govern or, ]Fa'y.for Superintendent of Educa tion and Barrow ,for Secretary of State they will modestly secord the remaining positions on the ticket to the other sections of the State. In our opinion, the Democratic Conservative party of this State could not put in nomination a stronger ticket than the following: For Governor-Louis A. Wiltz of Or leans. Lient. Gov.-Jno. C. Moucure of Caddo. Secretary of State-A. D. Lafargue of Avoyelles. Attorney General-A. S. Herron of Baton Rouge. Auditor-Allen Jnmel of Iberville. Supt. of Education-R. M. Lusher of Orleans. Col. L. M. nutt of Caddo is men tioned by the Natchitoches rindicator as a proper candidate for Lieutenant Governor. TbeWest Baton Rouge BngarPllanter warmly commends the course of Gov. Nicholls and regrets that his worth and services seem to have been com pletely ignored by the candidate makers. It is the general impression that Gov. Nicholls does not seek or desire a renomination and would not accept it, but the Sugar Planter thinks it would be only justice to tender the compliment and at least afford the Governor the privilege of a graceful declination. A correspondent of the Assumption Pioneer suggests Col. Thomas H Handy of Orleans as a candidate for Governor. It is cited in his favor that lie not only made a good record as a Confederate officer during the late war, but that as Civil Sheriff of New Orleans in January, 1877, the installation of the Nicholis govern ment was largely due to his efforts. Col. Hawly is doubtless a very worthy gentleman, bet the only place open to him in the gubernatorial contest is one among the " dark horses." The Baton Rouge Capitolian raises the Wiltz Banner. The Morehonse Clarien's ticket is Gen. Fred. N. Ogden of Orleans for Govenor, Moncure of Caddo for Lien tenant Governor, Norwood of More house for Sectetary of State, John M. Sandidge of Orleans for Auditor, Her ron of Baton Rouge for Attorney General, and it isn't a bad Democratic ticket, either. How about the Super intendent of Public Education, Mr. Clarion. The Tensas Journal ranges itself with that portion of the State press which favors Hon. Louis A. Wiltz for next Governor. Assumption Pioqeer learns, with re gret, that Hon. Taylor jeattie will not be a candidate for re-election as Dis trict Judge. Had he entered the field, the Pioneer thinks he would have been elected without opposition. The New Iberia tSugar-Bowl sup ports Hon. Robt. M. Lusher for re election as Superinteudepnt of Public Education. So does the Alexandria Democrat. The latter paper speaks of Mr. Lusher as the best Superin tendent Louisiana has ever had, with the exception of Alexander Digit4ry. The Baton Rouge Advocate says: " There is no disguising or smoothing over the fact that there is wide spread distatisfactiin in . the ranks of thire Democratic party in this parish." Hon. Arthur F. Knobloch of La fourche is the only candidate in the field for Judge of the Twentieth Ju dicial District-Lafourche and As sumption. The Democrats of Avoyelles parish have elected delegates to the State Convention and indorsed Hon. Louis A. Wiltz for Governor. Jefferson parish leads off with the first parochial ticket in the field. It was nominated by the Republicans and is as follows: For Representa tive, Leonard Roche; Sheriff, L. De fornean i Clerk of .Cqurt, S. Ellison Justice of the Peace, A. J. Kemp; Coroner, Dr. J. B. Armstrong; Cop stable, E. W. Gardy. The Republicans of the Ninth Sen atorial District--Lafourche, Terre bonne and Assumption parishes-held their nominating convention at Thib odaux on Thursday last, the 18th inst., and nominated Hens. Mayer Cahen of Assuimption and Jordan Stewart of Terreboene for State Sen ators. Mr. Cahen was chosen with out opposition, while Mr. Stewart, who is a colored man, received 10 votes against 31 cast for Jienry Frank lin of Lafourche. Thbe convention indorsed Hon. T.ylor Beattie as Re publican candidate for Governor. Judge Beattie was present and made a stirring speech, in the course of which he expressed his willingness to accept the nomnination for the good of the party should the honor be ten-. dered him. Congrespman J. B. Elams peremp torily declines the use of his name as a candidate for Governor-so says the Shreveport Times. Baptist Council. An 4ssembly of Ministers Fonsidering.t.e Cases of Revs. John Ashby and Sjencer Roberson--The Decisions. OR Monmay aild Tuesday last an,eccles inastical council of Baptists-composed. of clerical and lay delegates-from a -number of the Baptist churches of this and adja cent parishes--uet in Donaldsonville to consider the Gase0of Rev. John Ashby, ex-pastor of the Nazarene Church of this town, who petitioned for a reconsidera tion of the decision excluding him from the ministry, aind also the case of Rev. Spencer Roberson, present pastor of the same church, charged with misconduct, the details of which -have been already given in the CluEF. The Ashby case was considered on Monday, at the Court-House, the council having proceeded to that building to hold its session because of some misnn ,derstanding concerning the use of the Nazarene Church. After evidence had' been taken and arguments made, pro and con, it was decided that when the ex cluded members of the Nazarene congre gation who had followed the fortunes of Mr. Ashby when he was forced out of the church, should return and ask to be re admitted, the ministerial functions of the Rev. Mr. Ashby would be restored. We are not fully informed upon the mat ter, but we believe there is a disposition upon the part of Mr. Ashby and his friends, while deprecating the harshness of the council's decision, to make an effort towards carrying out the sugges tion which it offers and reuniting with the Nazarene Church. At all events, there has been considerable abatement. of the hard feeling hitherto prevailing between the Baptist factions, and this leads to the conclusion that they are in a fair way to harmonize past differences. Tuesday the coun.il met in the Naza rene Church and- instituted an investiga tion into the charges against Rev. Spencer Roberson. The editor of the C4nrIF was called upon by a committee of the coun cil, and subsequently requested to appear before the council itself, to make a state ment of the evidence upon which the articles appearing in the paper had been based. Without desiring to occupy such a position, the editor was forced into the attitude of a prosecuting witness and almost the entire onus of sustaining the charges was thrust upon him; and in justification of the CIIIr's course with reference to the matter under inquiry, we could not do less than lay before the council a full and candid statement of all the circumstances of the affair, within our knowledge, backed up with 4dosU inentary proof and the corroborative testimony of other witnesses. The mem bers of the council, we are glad to say, unanimously recognized the right and privilege ofthe CmIEF to give the scandal publicity and we believe all acquitted us of any sinister motive in the premises. Rev. Roberson's defense consisted of a denial that the love letters produced were in his handwriting; a confession that he was in the "besieged house" Tuesday night, and all day Wednesday, and that he escaped under cover of dark ness early Wednesday night, being de terred by the threats of the crowd outt side from emerging during the day; and, finally, an assertion that he was innocent of any criminality in his relations with "the lady of the house." His theory was that he had gone to the ill-starred house to see his little daughter, who was stop pieg there and was somewhat ill; that after soothing the child to slumber he fell asleep himself and did not awyakep until morning, when he was startled to find the premises surrounded by the noisy crowd just referred to. After due discussion of the matter, the council adopted, by a vote of 19 to 3, a resolution advising the Nazarene Church to dismiss the Rev. Spencer Roberson as its pastor. The argument which pre ceded the adoption of this resolution was characterized by much force and elo quence. The remarks of Revs. A. M. Newman, H. C. Green and Jno. Marks of New Orleans, and of Rev. George Arm stead of Napoleonville, were especially noteworthy and created a deep impres sion upon the council and the large au dience present. Rev. Armstead acted as Moderator of the .coancil and filled the position admirably, while non. G. H. Hill efficiently performed the duties of secretary. When the business of the council was concluded, Rev. Marks took the floor and made an eloquent and touching address, calling upon Baptists to stand by the faith anl sustain the Nazarene Church ; not to be cast down by their troubles, but close up their ranks were Satan made vacancies there, and march for ward to the goal of all true ehristsans. We regret that our space will not per mit us.to reproduce in the C.Irt the fiue thoughts uttered and powerful reasoning advanced by the speakers in this council and during the informal pro ceedings which succeeded its delibera tions ; suffice it to say the record would be no discredit to an assemby composed entirely of cultured orators, scholars and debaters. We understand that the Nazarene con gregation has decided to retain Rev. Roberson as pastor of the church, ex tending him forgiveness for his indiscre tion and allowing him the benefit of every doubt which can exist in theprem isea; but that he will absent himself from Donaldsonville for a short time unn til the excitement and feeling aroused by the scandal have somewhat subsided. While we might combat the decision of the church from the standpoint of strict morality, we are quite willing to join in thq exercise of chajity and forbearancee towards the erring minister. His friends freely express the opinion that his ftture conduct will be quch as to retrieve and atore for his recent misstep; and as he possesses' many excellent qualitlis and can make himself the instrument of much ood to his church and among Ills peo ple, the CHIEF has no disposition to pur me him further or deny him the oppor ;unity of reformation.
