Last week the temperature lowered a good many de grees and several frosts occurred which have checked the second growth of sugar cane and materially increased its 'ield. On- news from the sugar-houses is very sa it, and we invite some of our plant ing friends to give us information iela live to the progress they are iiaking. Break-downs in the mluIllachinery of Messrs. lien Gibson's and .1. C. C(field's sugar-houses have occurred recently, ne cessitating brief, but vexatious and ex pensive delays for repairs. At the Tu reaul place, in the fifth ward, yester day evening, a small pjece of boiler was blown out and a two-feet patch was re quired to stop the leak. Fortsunate)y no one was injured by the explosion. We copy the following paragraph from the Assumption Pioneer of the 8th inst., and join with that journal in extending condolence to Mr. Green, who has been so sorely alllicted during the past year Our forner parishoner and friend .T. C. Green, Easq., visited his plantation here on a sad crrand. The object of his visit was to see his promising son committed to the grave in Christ Episcopal ceme tery. Mlavor C. Green died suddenly of heart disease, at the early age of 19 years and 7 months, regretted by all who ever knew him. lie is the seventh child lost by Mr. Green within the past twelve months. Ollly one child is left to the deeply afflicted father.

Keating's Academy. The reputation acquired by Mrs. Keating and her young charges for atbfrding to the public a rare combina tion of amuseulent and instriction in their exhibitions, is sufiicient to warrant the prediction that a large audience-will attend the coining entertainment. The price of idmiission has been fixed at twenty-five cents, and the pupil selling the greatest nuiber of tickets will lie awarded an appropriate prize. COTTON Gi(x ItRNEin.-On Wednesday of last week, the gia-hqpse on the Dlu mniii Lelilane place. at -Dutch Stores, in the eighth ward of this parish, caught tire and was completely destroyed. to gether with twelve Dales of 'otton in the ]milling and one hundred aiid lifty loads of peavine hay tetecked in the field a short distance away. The lire started in the lint room while the gil was in oper ation, anl had gained such headway lbe tire being discovered, that it was intpos sible. wit Ii the facilities at hand to check its progress. The loss ivsulting tiim this iceident is estimated at about 2IPO0. and there was un insurance upon the prop ertvy destroyed.

The Bolters in Secret Council-They Nomi nate a Ticket. The bolting Republicans of this parish, who are riding on the shoulders of poor old John Cheevers and expecting through the prestige of his popularity to feather their own little nests and secure control of the local offices, met in secret conclave at G. H. Hills residence to-day, and in the seclusion of a private and exclusive c1acqs, mapped out their plan of cam paign and framed a paeodhial tidketc The assembly consisted of some twenty or twenty-five persons, mostly from the town of Donaldsonville, assembled to gether by mutual agreement and under standing, without any pretense of the formality of holding an election for dele gates in any of the wards. None were admitted to the confab but those who obligated themselves beforchand to sup port whatever action would be taken, with two or three exceptions which we do not wish to mention with more par ticularity at this time. So far as our in formation goes, the first ward was repre sented by the defeated aspirant for Slier iff before the conclave; the second by a self-constituted delegate and a resident of Donaldsonville; the third by two chronic bolters, who have invariably op posed every thing done by the regular Republican organizations for several years past; the fourth by ten or a dozen parties from this town; the fifth by the uiig bolter of the parish and one of his brothers; the sixth by an individual ac cinentally present and pressed into ser vice; the seventh and eighth by nobody. The handsomest Internal Revenue Col lector in the State, was present and those distinguished compatriots from St. James, ex-Sheriff V. Miles and Hon. Son ny Simmes also shed the light of their presence and added the weight of their wisdom to the gathering. After much secret solemn discussion and rubbing of heads together, and sundry recesses for the purpose of visiting an unlicensed deadfill in Mr. Hill's front yard, ahieue liquid lightning was seiwed (At to the thirsty, the followi~mg ticket was formiu hated: State Senator., lichard Simmnes, J)istricttndge, John A. Cheevers, Representative, J. J. Sullivan, Jr. Sheriff, Louis Lefort, Clerk of Court, G. H. lill, Coroner, I)r. John Dominique. It was decided to leave the District At torneyship blank, but whether the 1,lnk will appear on the tickets on Icixtion day remains to be seen. A proposition was also made to take no action with re spect to the Representative, in accord ance with the liau indiesated in the Cili i last week, but the matter .as discussed and it was finally deeided to indorse Mr. Sullivan, the reg.ui)laur nomi nee. The contest for Sheiff wvas a close one, Mr. Lefort only gaining the ques tionable prize of the nomination, we un derstand, by one vote over his competi tor, Mr. A. P. Dominique. The nomina tion of Mr. Hill for the Clerkship over Mr. Jlno. D. Cantey controverted the doc trine of the " survival of the fittest," for it is a notorious fact that Mr. Hill is to tmilly incoinpctant to perform the duties of Clerk of Court. After the business of the farcical con vention had been accomplishedu, some miscellaneous chin music was indulniged in, and the Collector of Internal Rese nie took occasion to declare to the boys that if money was all that was iptpeded to carry the thing through, he had plenty of it for the purpose. Mass-Meetings in the First stns} Sixth Wards. The 1Republiepn mass-imeetings in the first and sixth wards, last Snu4ay, were well attended and proved entirely satis factory in results. The first ward meet ing awls held tit the Adlard Landry school-house, opeoiing at 4 o'clock it the afternoon, Mr. Louis Butler presiding and W. F, A. Gaines. Esq., acting as see retary. The Excelsior Brass Band was present and its flue music did much to attract the large assemblage of people. The sneakers were Messrs. P. A. Jones, L. E. Bentley, Augustus Knight and J. J. Sullivan, Jr., and their exposition of the political situation and the issues of the canvass were listened to with deep inter est by the audience. Judge Henry L. Duftel visited the meeting pursuapt to invitation apd being introduced, ac cepted the Republican nomination for the District Judgeship in the following appropriate remarks; Fiellow Citizens-I was informed by a conumittee that I have been iominated by the Republican party for the ocfice of District Judge. I was also invited by members of the Parish Executive Com mittee of your party to attend this meet ing. This invitation I accepted and I am here to thank vou. Two years ago when I was appointed District Judge by Governor Nicholls I learned that the colored people were alarmed, lest, as I was a pronounced Democrat, I would prove a partisan ,Judge. Your voluntary choice of me now, proves that the alarm was un foinmed, and is complimentary to inc personally and.as Judge. The selection of a Democrat by you when you could elect one of your own party shows a generons and fair minded disposition, which will meet its own re ward. The people of f-his parish, and in fact of the State, will not fail to note this disinterestedness on your pIrt, which does you much credit. I accept the nomination with pride, because your action in this matter con vinces.me that I must have acted, when on the bench, with impartiality, and have renudered my judgments accordjig to the law and evidence, instead of re garding the color or condition of those brought before me. I onceumore thank you, and wish you success and prosperity in your under takings. The sixth ward meeting took place at Ashlaudl warehouse, after dark, Mr. Ne4 Hill presiding, Stephen Johison, secre tary. Messrs. Arthur Burnett, Augustus Knight, Joseph Carter, Jio. A. Cheevers, Pierre Lauudrv. G. H. Hill, L. E. Bentle 'm Win. Scott and P. A. Jones addrussed the audieiice, auii although Messrs. Clicevers anil Hill made the most they could of tiieir huolt and said all thtist could lbe sail in its favor, their fliumsy pretexts were torn to tat ieraai-. tlu' tune dunn(ten oh the bolt exposed so effectively that the unanimous sentiment of the meeting was favorable to the regular ticket. This was demonstrated when Mr. Hill, after a characteristic harangue, called for three cheers for Judge Cheevers anudzeeived no response. A second 1call. Tauin the speaker elicited ayye11 'from one man on horseback .aul the orator retired from the stand in disgust. Judge Cheevers atated to several persons at this meeting that he wished he could find some way to satisfy the men who were backing him up, so that lie could withdraw from the contest for the judgeship. Republican Nominations in the Ninth Justice Ward. The following communication, which we insert with pleasure, shows that the Republicans of the New River justice ward have disregarded partisan consid erations in the nomination of a Justice of the Peace and Constable, and have re warded two just and faithful officers by tending them support for re-election : NINTH JUSTICE WARD. Ascension Parish, La.,.Noy. 17, 1879. ErIToR CHIEF: Dear Sir-You will please publish the nomination of Mr. John M. Lusk, and the nomination of Mr. Lucien Gantreau as Justice of the Peae and Constable of the ninth justice ward of the parish of Ascension, by the Republicans of said ward. Very respectfully yours, REv. C. G. BURNETT, President poo tem. .R. IV. ALLIsox, Secretary. The Grand Mass-Meeting of November 30. It is expected that the last and most important Republican mass-meeting to be held in this parish during the present campaign-that to take place in 1)on aldsonville on Sunday, the 30th inst., will be a "rouser" in size and enthusi asm. Besides Judge Taylor 03eattiw and other prominomit Louisiana Republi cans, it is hoped that Gen. Stewart L. Woodford of New York will be present. This 4.istinguished gentleman ranks anum~g the finest orators .in the coimitry, and it would give the people of this section pleasure to hear hmie, .t all of sur citizens, white and colored, Jtepurh licans and Democrats, turn out in force to listen to the Republican caudidate for Goveanor and tjje eq uent gentle men who will accompany him.

The documents referred to are receipts for the payments on matured policies, oi,+ a life policy of $1500 terminated by the death of Mr. Desire P. Uohichaux, the other a policy of $4000 issued on the ten year endowiuout plan to Mr. .J. Cr. Bien venue, to whomr the money was paid in person on the day the tertmu expired. It is always a pleasure to commend a com pany which ponducts its business in such tan admjrable manner as the Louisiana Eqi~tnIable does. Purchase a Singer Sewing Machine fcom II. JI.

Goods cheaper than ever known before in Donaldsonville; a chance for all; the poorest can njud something in accordance with their tastes and within reach of their hnmuble ueans-at Cheap Tony's cashstore. In another part of our piper to-day appears, in conspicuous fiuio , lilt ad vertisement of that wide-awake, enter prising and popular merchant, G. Feitel. bar. ieitel is one of those who believcs that the broad road to wealth is through extensive advertising, and that by con stantly keeping the public informed as to the quantity and quality of the goods he has on hand, and the exceedimgly low rates at which he disposes of them, to hold out such ieducentents as any one wishing any thing in the mercantile line will know exactly where to go and find it. And pow that he is about to remove his extensive stock to a more spacious and elegant building, he is anxious to dis pose of as much of it as possible, thereby lessening the inconvenience of removal. As a consequence he is offer ing most extraordinary opportunities to purchasers, in fact selling goods at a sac rifice. -Go while there is yet time, and our word for it, you will receive just, honest, fair and impartial dealing from the eunrteomis Mr. Feital and his affable clerks. The Singer Machine is the best tmade. Depot on Mississippi street. B. HI. Keyser, ageist, SENA'OR.a LANDIIY VINDICA'. ED.-While looking over a file of exchanges the other day we noticed the following paragraph in the New Orleans Qbrercer of October 15, and it gave us the first jntimpatiomn we have received of the vindication efSena_ tor Landry from the charge of assault and battery preferred against him some time ago by Mrs. Bernard, boarding-house keeper iin New Orleans. We join the oTscrrer in congratulating the Senator upon the satisfactory adjustment of the unfortunate matter. The paragraph re ferred to is as follows: State Senator Landry, who has been seriously ill at his home in Donaldson ville, front rheumatic fever, is now hap pily convalescent, and though yet bear ing the marks of a severe attack, he is speedily regaining vigor. Mr. Landry arrived here oui Tuesday and the same day voluntarily preseinted himself at court, to answer the charge of assault, presented by lMrs.Bernard; and published in the N. O. Tihmes sonic weeks siuee. The matter on investigation is satistfatoriiy adjusted. In fact, careful inquiry shows that in this case the charge and publica tion were both a malicious proeopution, inteqded to effect injury to Mr. Limidry. Fortunately, impartial examination niot only disproves the charge of battery but clearly vindicates Senator Laundry. We are pleased to i.ote the result and rejoi e in the hIi jmpy disposition of timi miiitter. REGISTRATION.-Mr. J. B.

After this time the registration will be finally closed. MANGLED BY A MOWEn.-On Thursday last, the 20th inst., John Haynes, a col ored man employed on Mr. Ben Gibson's rice plantation, adjoining Darrowville, met with a very serious and painful ac cident which came very near costing him his life. He was engaged at the time as driver of the mowing machine, going through the field cutting the second growth of rice, when one of the wheels ran over a stump and threw thei driver from his scat. gie was steiik %y the knives of the mower, *receiVing two gashes on one leg, two on the hip and one on the shoulder lAadle, all deep and severe cuts, those on the leg taking out pieces of she bone. The unfortunate man's auutenings have been intense, but under the skilful treatment of Dr. A. C. Love he is in a fair way of as speedy re covery as the nature of his wounds will permit. In Memoriam. WINFREE.-At her residence, in the town of Donaldsonville, La., November 17, 1879, at 12 o'clock M., ADELIA E. GRIF FIN, wife of the late Philip Wintree, aged 52 years. New Orleans papers please copy. On Monday last, at 12 o'cloeJ, Mrs. Adelia Winfree breathed her last ip this worl4 of sin, sorrow and misfortp e, and her glori fied soul took its ftight to the joyous realms above-up to the God who gave it. Mrs. Winfree suffered long and painfully, and at last, like a departing sunbeam, brr life ebbed away. She inves three children two daughters and a sou-to mourn her un timely death. It were a fruitless task to attempt to portray her many virtues as ianilbiated in the 52 yearsthatare inscribed ia her life's tablet. Suflice to say, that she was all that was good, great and noble; kind, generous and tender-hearted ; pos sessed of all the exatted qualities that were necessary to win and charm the hearts of all with whom she cauee in contact. Mrs. Winfree leaves no eneries behind, but a host of sorrow-stricken and mourning friends who sadly bewail hlr premature taking-off. And now that she is gone, and we stall see her nto )ore fovreie, we fully appreciate her greatness and worth. Poor Mrs. Winfree! Dear departed soul! Sweet, hallowed Saint in the spirit land ! We truly ant devoutly hope, that in " that bet ter world " where all is peace and ]ove and truth, that you may receive the reward so justly earned in this: "Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter into the kingdom the Lord has prepared for you." Sweet, gentle mother, calmly rest, Beneath the cold, green sod; The flowers will bloom above thy breast, Whilst you will dwell with God. And often in the pale moonlight, When falls her sil'vry ray Utpon the stilly shades of night, Beside thy grave we'll pray That thy pure, inmnortal soul May rest in joy and bliss; Beyond grim sorrow's sad control, In the world more fair than this. That up in that celestial sphere, Where all is peace and truth; That you will find them, gathlaed there, The glories-of Christ's love a proof. Alt! sweetly, calmly. mildly sleep, In the grave we've made for thee; Though sadly for thee now we weep, We know from sin your soul is free. We know that we shall meet again, Around the Heavenly Throne; There, free from strife and woe and pain, Mother soon "'ill meet her own. A. J. R. NEW ADVEETISEMIENTS. Copy of Rec ipt.
