He will return to-morrow and start for Vicksburg in a special car tendered him by the rail .road company. The Honuma Courier learns that Hon. John S. Billiu of Lafourche is a candidate for Congress from this dis triot, and expresses fear that he will prove a powerful rival to Mr. Acklen. The Courier says: Mr. Billin has been an active member of our State Legislature for several years epast, and his course has always been pa triotic, wise and conducive to the public good. He is well known throughout the State, and those that know him love and respect him for his kind, amiable and generous disposition. He would make a good and able Congressman. ~Sheriff C. C. Dnson of St. Landry tmas added another to his numerous exploits in the way of pursuing and capturing criminals who have fled to other States. He has just returned from Texas with one John Sonnier, who murdieren two old men named Prudhomme and Runnion, in St. Lan dry during the year 1871. This fugi tive from justice, who is a reckless and dangerous man, was nabbed in bhe vicinity of Brazoria, while acting as guard over a number of convicts working on a sugar plantation.

EnITOR CsIEF : The weather is again clear and pleas ant. No rain since ten or twelve days. The soil, for the fir t ew days after the recent wet spell, worked splendidly, loose and easy, but since then, it has be come baked and works the reverse. A good shower woult prove very beneficial in melting hard clods, and bringing the ground generally in a more mellow con dition. Work is plentiful, and increases every day. The long looked for good weather has been fully taken advantage of by the plantors, as the headway in their work confirms. Judge J. C. Brand, late of ,his vicinity, and now a resident of Gretna, Jefferson parish, could not forget his old home and friends. He showed it in his arrival hsee last Sunday. The Judge is looking bale and hearty, and is, as usual, full of solid fun. lie intends to remain and amuse us fir a while, when he will go back to his new home, where undoubt edly he has already made a host of friends, who wilH welcome his return.

Juries are to be drawn in accord ance with existing laws, excepting the requirement that the drawing take place and publication thereof he made fifty days before the sitting of court, which is dispensed with so far as con cerns the terms of the various District Courts held in April, 1880. Jury Commissioners are directed to select as jurors only persons having the qualifications prescribed by this act. Conflicting laws are repealed. No.45. An Act empowering Police Ju ries to declare hedges and fences made of posts, planks and barbed wire to be lawful, and empowering Police Juries to authorize the use of the same.

No. 56. An Act to define the powers and duties of the Bureau of Agriculture and Immigration, and to make an appro priation for the expenses of the said Bureau of Agriculture and iummigra tion. The powers and duties of the Ba reau are specified under eight head- 4 inogs. We condense them as follows: First-To superintend the distribution of seeds which the United States may wish to introduce in this State, to import valuable seed or to exchange seed with foreign countries. To obtain and diffuse information relative to injurious insects and the best methods of destroying the same. Second-To examine questions of in terest to fruit growers and horticultu rists and encourage these industries.

An appropriation of $6000 is made for the expenses of the Bureau, and a like amount is to be provided yearly hereafter. The act takes effect from and after passage, and laws in conflict are repealed. No. 57.

The bonds of these officers are to be for $10,000 each, with at least two good and solvent sureties who reside in the parish where the officer is to exercise his official functions. The reumaining provisions of the act are similar to those of Act No. 52, which refers to the bonds of Sheriffs. No. 59. An Act relative to the payment of costs of court in contested election cases and in cases in which the right Xo an office is claimed. The person claiming an office, or on whors relation a suit of contest is en tered, aiall be responsible for costs. as in ordjiutry civil cases; but should the personi warose election or right to time otfice is eomrtested be cast in the suit, then such person shall be con deimned to pay the costs. No. 6.. Juoint Resolution requesting the I tenators and Representatives front the St.te of Louisiana in the Congress of the United &Sates, to use their influ cnce to have section NA. 14 of the Be vised Statutes of the United States amended so as to change the time for the election of United States Senators to the session of the .General Assem blies next precedi4g the time at which such Senators are to take their seats in the Senate of the United.States.

No. 62. Concurrent Resolution instruct ing our Senators and requesting our Representatives in Congress to make diligent efforts to hasten and procure a definite settlement of certain claims the State has against the general gov ernment growing out of certain acts,of Congress granting lands to this State. The three last noted enactments are sufficiently explained by their titles to obviate the necessity of givitfg a syn opsis of their provisions. Acts Nos. 63 to 76 have been pro mnulgated, but limited space compels us to defer a report of their titles and details until next week. MR. AOKLEN'S PROTEST. We are in receipt of a printed cir cular from Hon. J. H. Acklen, Merm ber of Congress from this District, in which he opposes the action of Mr. Brusele of Iberville, chairman of the Democratic-Conservative Congres sional Committee, in calling upon the Democrats of the various parishes of the district to accredit their delegates to the State convention on Monday also to a Congressional nominating convention to meet during or after the session of the State assemblage. Mr. Acklen contends that this call is unauthorized, because the avowed objects of the State convention are "' to select delegates to the National convention and fix the time and place of Congressional Conventions," and because, the district delegates to the State convention of 1879 having de cided that they were not authorized to nominate a candidate for Congress, were alike unauthorized to declare at that time and in what manner a Congressional. convention should be thereafter coznvened and a nomina tion made, which they essayed to do by adopting the resolution under which Mr. Brusle issued his call. Mr. Acklen closes his document with this paragraph: Twice, against overwhelming odds, did I carry this district for the Democ racy. I do not know that I shall again be a candidate, as private business greatly demands my attention, but I now appeal to the Democrats of the dis trict not to disrupt the party by the ac tion comtemplated in the above notice, against which I enter my most earnest protest. Letter from Wide-Awake. Condition of the Cane and Corn Crops The Labor Question-h-igh Water, Etc. AscENSION PAmsH. LA., April 6, 1880. DEAR EDITOR : It has been some time now since Wide-Awake contributed to the worthy columns of your mruch esteemed journal, therefore he is duty bound to furnish you now with all information at his command regarding crops, which is the main topic everywhere. From all appearances and reports the cane is in excellent condition to vouch the certainty of another large crop like that of '78. The season has been just what it could be wished, and the plant ers have every reason to feel contented, for awhile at least. No doubt the recent cool spells hiave somewhat debarred the growth of tl e cane, but nevertheless it is again rapidly moving on, and I dare say there will be no further impediments to its progress. The Fall plant is con siderably ahead of the Spring, but both are in excellent condition, as likewise are the rattoons. The corn is coming up finely also, and promises an unusual supply of that es sential staple. I had the pleasure lately of calling at Mr. J. A. Burbank's, who has the Pedes claux plantation in rice. Suffice it to say that the stand which I had occasion to note was just peeping above the soil, but showed a fine stand in quantity. With the river at its present height, Mr. B., is confident of making a full crop, and it is to be hoped that he will do so, as he deserves high reward for his ener getic labors and his excellent qualities. Labor in our section is quite abundant, and there seems no disposition as yet on the part of the laborers to strike as in other parishes, and it is not likely that they will, as I think Ascension is blessed with a better class of colored people than most parishes can boast of. They display a more common sense feeling toward their employers; all tends to show that we are better governed and have sounder parish authorities. The river is the next consideration in view. There is abundant reason to fear some danger from the present high water and it is still on the rise. It is to be hoped that the river will soon take a fall, as it is impossible to tell what may happen next should it maintain its rising proportions. Well, Mr. Editor, I will not intrude too long on your kindness, but I trust you rill give this apace in your columns Very truly yours, V Ver DE-AWAKE, ,The New District Court. Judge urea -Holdyna Over Vtatit His Sueeesee. uallges--The Sherif and Clerk Assume their New ~rae tlne.. On Monday last, the 5th instant, the Twenty-Second Judicial District Court created by the Constitution of 1879, was opened for the first time, agreeably to the provisions of that instrument and of Act No. 7 of the General Assembly of 1880. Contrary to our expectation, as announced last week, that Judge Duffel "would continue to perform all the functions of District Judge excepting the holding of Court," that official was present and on the bench, acting as Judge of the new tribunal under the provisions of the constitution which de clare that all officers shall hold over un til their successors are duly qualified and inducted into office, and that in or der that official interregnums and public inconvenience may be avoided, the con stitution of 18~ and laws enacted there under shall continue in force until duly superceded by the new constitution, even though contrary to the require ments of the latter ilstrument. The Judge read a lengthy and forcible opin ion in support of his position which we shall endeavor to publish in full next week. District Attorney Earhart presented his commission and oath of office and also those of the Sheriff Jones and Clerk of Court Bentley, together with the bonds of the latter officers; all of which docu ments were ordered to be noted on the minutes. These officials were all re-elec ted in December last. Mr. Jones is ex oficio Tax Collector, and Mr. Bentley ex oficio Recorder and Notary Public, this combination of offices having been effected by the new constitution. David Israel, Esq., was re-appointed Deputy Sheriff and the selection was approved by the Judge, who adminis tered the usual oath of office to Mr. Israel in open Court. The Judge then ordered that the terms of the District Court be fixed as follows: Ascension--Firt Monday of April, jury term; first Monday of July; first Monday of September, jury term, first Monday of November. St. James-First M,:nday of June, jury term; first Monday of August; first Monday of October, jury term; first Monday of Decembel. A copy of the order was transmitted to the Clerk of Court for St. James parish, and another copy posted on the Court House door. Owing to the delay in the passage and promulgation of the new jury law, no jury had been drawn for the session of court, and it is fortunate that such was the case, as the present uncertain status of affairs would have prevented the trial of any cases of importance and the sum moning of jurors would have entailed useless expense upon the parish. Court adjourned until yesterday, when all the business transacted was the ap pointment and qualification of Captain R. P. Landry and Mr. W. J. Neanas as Sheriff's deputies and of Mr. W. W Buford as Deputy Clerk and Recorder. Court was adjourned until next Thurs day, the 15th inst., by which time it is anticipated Judge Cheevers will have taken some action looking to an early trial of the injunction suit instituted to prevent hint from assuming the position of District Judge. He left for New Or leans on Sunday, the day after being served with the writ of injunction, and it is supposed the object of his visit was to engage counsel to defend hint in the case and endeavor to establish his right to the.Tudgeship. We have heard noth ing of his movements since, beyond the rumor that he hai employed the vener able Judge St. M. Beirault as his attor ney. It is generally believed here, even among those who supported him most zealously during the recent campaign, that an:y efforts he may make to combat the proceedings taken against him will result in failure. Not a few contend that a graceful withdrawal from the contest would be the most sensible step he could take. Large numbers of French citizens have unsettled demands against the United States Government, for property taken by the Union Army during the late Re bellion. PRESBREY & GREEN, Attorneys, 50' Seventh street, Washington, D. C.' having had large experience in connec tion with Alabama claims as well as other claims growing out of the war, are prepared to undertake the settlement of all claims held by the citizens of France against the United Sates C overnment. "' Rev." Geo. Bell. Progress of Our Fraudulent Afrlean Mis sionary-Where his Royal Creden tials Came From. The Right Reverend George Bell, that peculiar looking specimen of nature's handiwork who has induced a number of credulous colored people in this vicinity to believe that he was sent by an African King to teach the Gospel of Christianity to the benighted heathen of America, perseveres in his course of deceit and has drawn about him a small but noisy con gregation which proposes to build a church in Port Barrow, if Bell doesn't conclude to run off with the money be ing raised for the purpose. That an unlettered but shrewd scamp like this fellow can obtain a foothold and a following among our colored peo ple by aping religious practices and tell ing falsehoods so palpable that every schoolboy in the land can recognize their enormity, forms a sad commentary upon the condition of a considerable element of our population, and shows what a vast field is here presented for genuine and intelligent laborers in the vineyard whose aim is to teach and enlighten the people instead of increasing their ignor ance and imposing upon their credulity, as George Bell is doing. Bell has in his possession printed cre dentials, ornamented with a representa tion of an eagle, and these he says, were 1 given him by "the King ofAfrica," who ever that grand personage may be. Now, there aze a number of so-.alled kings of tribes of asked h athens in A ica, but that George Bell;did not get his creden tials from any °these will appear from the following copy of a bill found in his possession : New Orleans, Feby. 9, 1880. Rev. George Bell. To C. E. Hopkins, Job Printer, Dr. No. 26 Camp Street-Story building, Corner Commos, up stairs, 100 Credentials, ......................1 00 Eagle, ...............................25 $1 25 Rec'd paym't, C. E. HOPKINS. So Bell's credentials from the King of Africa came from a New Orleans job printing office; they were never seen in Africa, and we will give Bell a nice hymn book if he will prove that he him self has ever beheld the shores of that benighted country. It is true that he bears considerable resemblancce in looks and actions to the African orang-outang, but this does not signify that he has sported with that gentle creature in its native forests. We commend the following letter, whieh we copy from the New Orleans Evangelist, to the consideration of George Bell and his misguided associates. It is written by Rev. John Marks, one of the most intelligent and barnest colored Bap tist ministers in Louisiana or the South: To the Churches in Donaldsonville: DEAR BRETHREN-We hear that one George Bell is in your section preaching, and teaching doctrines contrary to the Scriptures. We emphatically declare unto you that we do not know the man, much less do we know any thing of his minis terial qualifications. He is not recognized as a minister. God speed has not been given by us min isters in the city. We praise you for your firmness and fidelity in keepinug him out of the Baptist pulpits. When we get ready to send out missionaries we shall select men who are educated; men who can teach and enlighten the people and the young ones of our dedomination. Henceforth let all know that the Evangelist does not uphold George Bell, nor does it sanction his course or the doctrine he is advancing. Yours in Christ, REV. J. MARKS.
