State Senator Robertson of St. Lau dry parish recejitly introduced in the body of which hlie is a member, a bill to provide for the appoinltent, by the Governor, 6f Police Junrors for all the parishes and nmunicipul offi cers for all the towns and cities in the State, excepting New Orleans and Shreveport;. the appointees to be inducted into office on the let of April next. It is gratifying to note that the Judiciary Committee, to which the bill was referred; sat down upop it with an unfavorable report, and it is to be hoped tihat, if any attempt is made to resurrect the scheme, the Setate wjll confirw the action of its commjttee by killiug the bil beyond hope of revival. If there was one thing more than auother which tended to make the Republican administration of the government of this State unpopular, unsuccessful and in such a large meas ure corrupt, it was the pernicious practice of taking fiom the people the power of selecting their local .officers and vesting it in the hands of the Governor. It is unreasonable to pre sume that any one mlan, however pure his motives or great his capacities, can select severail hundred oflicers for the various localities of a broad State without making many grievous blun ders and imposing upon the people officials who are obnoxious to their feelings or inimical to their interests. The people are by,uo means infallible and mistakes are not infrequently committed under the elective system, but it is safer by far to trust to local option in the selection of local officers and in the good old maxim that " in multitude of counsels there is wis dom," thanl to encourage a one-man oligarchy opposed in principle to the spirit of our institutions and hurtful in practice to the interests of our State. The tendency to revive the oper ations of a system that has proven baneful in the past, can not be too speedily or effectually checked. AN £RROR ORRECTED. The New Orleans Democrat of Sun day last contained an editorial upon the familiar subject of the Donaldson ville and Red River Landing mail route, based upon the article appear ing in the CI;EF of the 31st ultimto. Our correspondent, " Shanghai," dis cusses the existing aspect of this ques tion at length, in this number of our paper, and it is not our present pur pise to add any thing to his state ment councerning the merits of the controversy. We merely mention the Democrat's article to correct the erro neous remanrk made therein that "The CuiEF evidently looks at the matter fromn a Brott standpoint, and inakes as good a showing for that delinquent as the rather ugly situation will ad mit." We beg to dissent. The CHIrEF (I) looks at'the matter froman a common sense standpoint, and (2) makes no showing that is not borne out by the facts. The Democrat is welcome to its own opinion concerning the first proposition, but it can not controvert the second. Unlike most of the pa pers which have discussed this mail route business, the CUIEF cares as little for the political record or per sonal characteristics of the present contractor, as it does for the chagrin and opposition of the steamboatmen who have lost " a good thing" in be ing deprived of the old contract. We recognise the fact that a daily mail delivery on the route in question would be a great convenience and benefit to the people, and believing that such a delivery cana and will be esta:blishled, we are content to bear with and condone tealnplorary delays, resulting from unavoidable or acci dental causes, for the sake of securing the ultimate advantagaes iromised by the permanent establishment of the proposed service. \'e contend thalt the ChIEF is one of the very few journals that hlave treated this question dispassionately antl froaU a basis of " the greatest good to the greatest number." If the charges of its late Secretary are well fiounded, the Police Jury of St. John the Ba ptist parish is a de lectable body of uwne. Thile following extract will elucidate: To the P'resident and memabers of the Police Jury of St. John the Baptist: I herewitih tender my resignationl as secretary of the Pohee Jury for the fol lowiing reasons: 1. '.ihat I have been to-day, whlile act ing as your secretary, the subject of un just abuse and slander by a imember of the Ju ary whose lack in knowledge of p: ulnieutaury law coupled with hisillit eracy and ignllranlte, and unrebuked by the pre'sidenlt tor 1nlellbers of the Jury, render the deliberations of the Jury bois terous, undignified and disgracefnl. 2. I cau not longer be the recording otfficer of a iody of men, a majority of whom are so completely under the con trolt of inltuences so corrupt as that wit nessted at the late deliberations of your body. 3.

The Mardi Gras, pageantsain New Orleans were nntlenallymagi4ficoit this year, and were `witnessed by a larger mul'titude of people than ever before. It is estimate-d that there, were from 30,000 to 40,000 visitors in the city. His puissant Imajesty Rex gladdened the populace with a splen did day procession, giving a repre sentation of thi various inhabitants of the earth, air and sea. The Phorty Phaunny Phellows and a Germanr so ciety participated in the parade, the Phellows perpetrating an inimitable satire upon well known local organi zations and individuals. Aniong oth ers, was a representation of Dr. Sam uel Choppius, President of the Board of Health, angling in a L6oIisiana swamp for a yellow'fever germ, 'which, in the shape of a large golden insect, dangled from' his line. The Mayor iindt Administrators of tihe city, Capt. Sambola and many other gentleumn of local repute were travestied in a good unatured buthigh ly ridiculous manner. The carnival closed with the usual gorgeous night procession of the Mys tic Krewe of Comius, the splendid tableaux and balls of Rex and Coumus, and the customary masked balls at tile several theatres. The subject chosen foi illustration by the Mystic Krewo was Mexican history, and it was handled in masterly style. Daily Mail Service Defended. The Other Side of the Mail Question-The Shortcomings of the Former Service Recalled--We~ther and Crop Items-A WVedding, etc. AscENSION, February 8, 1880. ErITon CHIEF: The daily mail route between Donald sonville and mouth of Red river appears just now to be the chief topic of the day. Any where and every where, in the streets of cities, of towns, of villages, along the country public road and in the columns of almost every journal directly or indirectly interested, we hear and find comments ou tlis project. Of course, the delivery of emails is an inmportant matter, and deserves the earnest atton tion and consideration of the public in general. The Post-Office Department at Washington lhas, during the past eigh toeen months, been trying, to improve the mail service on this route. Its aim is to have a daily instead of a semi weekly or trl-weekly delivery at each and every post-office along the Missis sippi river between New Orleans and Red River Landing, for which we, tlhe public, tender our thanks to the depart mout, though its efforts thus far have proved but slightly beneficial to the comnmumnity. The godl will of the De partlment and of Post master General KeyS has beenll muaniftted, and we trust that their aim to serve us with a daily deliv ery of mail may yet, ere many weeks pass, be brought to the point of pertfc tion. We admit that, since the 10th of Jan nary, the mails have been delivered rather ltardily and irregularly, but satis factory cai.-es for the failuro have ex isted ; and tIhe present determined etfort;s of the contractor, IMr. lrott., lo remedy the deficiencies, plead that the tempo rary disorder should Ie overlooked. We admire the energy of Mr. Brett and the good work Ile is engaged in of trying to improve the iiiail service on a route that should long ago have had more attention paid to it. During the past week the mails were delivered quite regularly, only having been sonlewllat d~tained onr two occasions by the inclemency of the weather; and we now labor under the impression that by next week contractor Brott will have his boats in trim to make tihe trips and connections on time. He has four boats plying in this service, where two might do what is required, which of itself seems to promise a sure go and a fulfilment of contract. Every body has had enough of mail delivery by the Bayou Sara semi-weekly packets, Edw. J. Gay and John W. Can non. These boats may do duriing tile sunlmmer monlths, when cotton bales, hogslheads of sugar and barrels of mol:ls ses don't crowd the river laudiug and business in general is easy, but when we look back into the Fall and Winter months, when business is brisk, we find tilnt there was neither a punctual or regular delivery of mail by these boats. On many occasions they were either from eighteen to thirty-two hours behind time, or had too fine loads to make it worth their while to recognize a post office lan(ling along the route. The Gay was particularly lax in this respect and the only exchange of mails that was in any way regular was that made by the Cannon, which amonuted to a semi weekly mail only. Rather than have the humbug of the Bayou Sara packet mail delivery auew, we prefer to wait a little longer on contractor Brott and have him get matters straight, when all will feel better satisfied. In addition to other advantages, as long as we have packets plying daily on this route, prices of passage will be greatly reduced and give the poor man as well as the rich an opportunity to travel. When the Bayou Sara packets monopolized this portion of the river business, fare to New Orleans from this point was four dollars, now it is two dollars and fifty cents; from one posts oflice landing to another, from fifty cents to one dollar has been tile usual charge, but now it is only twenty-five cents. Is not this an item worthy of consideration, when the question of this mail route is unrler discussion ! In conclusion, I beg to say that if the Iberville South, which has so murch to say agaiinst the daily maail route, will give the matter a few moennts' srensible ctnsidern.tion. it unnst.t adlit ewh mat has been stated herein. tol be true, and that the Bayou Sara mrail boats were a poor conwaitenee in the business season. This isi0rroborated.drb s, corn numnication ifi the~gw Orleans Dmoecret of Sa'turday, the 7th inst., signed "Peli can." In the same paper appears another cpmmunicatiori on the same subject, signed " Southern Republican," which is more of a farce than any thing else, and we beg our postal authorities not to heed it. A daily mailis what we want and the government should give it to us no matter what a few impatient grumblers may say. '.Jhe Veather of February thus far has been quite the reverse of that of Jan nuary, which was unexceptionally fair and pleasant. During the latter month every body could and did work, and the result is that planting operations are in an extraordinary state of advancement. All the planters of this vicinity have fin ished planting their cane, or are about to do so, excepting our stirring old citizen, Dr. Edward Duffel, who only resumed the cultivation of his Mulberry Grove plantation last week. It is rumored that this place will be worked on shares this year. The condition of seed cane around here was middling, according to reports. Considering the early date at which it was taken up for planting, many expec ted to find less of it spoiled than proved to be the case. Up to the beginning of last week the fields presented an aspect more like Spring-time than Winter. Ev ery thing was green and in full growth. Fall planted cane and rattoons lined the rows with a good stand, but gruff Feb ruary, with his several frosts and freezes, clipped and colored all these tender plants. General opinion is that no dam age of any moment has been caused by this temporary check to the unusually early and advanced growth of the cane. On the 4th inst., at the residence of Mr. B. Hebert, Miss F. Hebert and Mr. John Gaudin, both of this parish, were united in the bonds of matrimony, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Fa ther Cuppens of Donaldsonville. We wish the happy couple all the happiness and success that married life can bestow upon them. Having nothing further to comment upon at present, I tender thanks for the space you will allow this communication in the colnmmn4f your wide-awake jour nal, and remain, under many obligations, Yours truly, SHIIANGHAI. The President has nominated Mr. Alex. C. Wells, son of ex-Gov. J. Madison Wells, to succeed his father as Surveyor of the Port of New Or leans, but it is believed the appoint ment will be rejected by the Senate. The New Orleans Democrat, refer rimng to the report of the Adjutant General of the State militia, makes it appear that the " Donaldsonvillo Can noneers " is the only organization in the country parishes belonging to the Louisiana State National Guard. We would reepecthilly suggest to the JDemocrat-and to the Adjutant Gen eral as well if the same error is made in his rclport--that Cofield's Battery of I)Don:ldsouville constitutes the third company of Regiment Orleaus Artillery, L. S. N. G. Mr. E. C. Palmer, lately president of tile suspended Louisiana Savings Bank of New Orleans, was this week tried beforo the Superior Criminal Court of that city upon the charge of embezzling $47,000 of the bank's money. After an absence of an hour and ten minutes, the jury returned an unqualified verdict of guilty. Mr. Pahler's counsel will move for a new trial, the principal ground of which will be that the charge of Judge Whitaker was calculated to unduly influence the minds of the jurymen against their client. Bills of excep tion were reserved to the refusal of the Judge to make certain special charges submitted by counsel for the accused. Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine' The March number is promptly on our table, taking precedence of all its con temporaries. It is, in every respect, a most admirable one; a religions, pure and moral tone pervades its pages, and still they abound with articles which appeal to all tastes and all classes, and fr'on the perusal of which the reader can not fail to derive both entertainment and edification. There are so many good things that it is difficult to select the most notable features. The opening ar ticle, by Hart Lytton, entitled "Esther Brandon's Mission Class," is a very pleas ing narrative of the lady's experience in the Mission. "The Puritan Revolution," by Rev. Lyman Abbott, is replete with the stirring incidents resulting in the organization of the Puritan party under Cromwell. Those adiuirable articles on "The Persecutions," by Alfred H. Guern sey, are concluded in this number with a most interesting paper on "The Perse cutions of the Hugeruots," in France nun der Louis XIV. The two very interest ing serials, '"Be-Ile, the Nailmuaker's Dauglter" and "Little Hinges," are continued, and there are several short stories by popular writers. The subject (No. 2) of "The Children of the Bible," is "Isaac, the Child of Promise." An elaborate article on the late Frank Les lie, by the editor (with illustrations), is a beautiful tribute to the artistic and personal merit of the deceased. There are poems of great excellence, sketches, essays, adventures, etc., and a musical composition, " I IIave a Glorious IIope," words and music written for this maga zine by Augusta Browne Garrett. One hundred and twenty-eight qruarto pages and 1(5) illustrations: the price of a single copy ?5 cents, or $3 per rnnum, pnnstpaid.
