The officers and memuters of Cofield's Battery were delighted to have their Colonel with them on the occasion of last Sunday's frolic. We were honored by a visit, Tuesday afternoon, from Right Rev.

Tit CONCE*r.-- We have wh4 appce left in this isnse to say that the concert, given at St. Joseph's Academy, last Sat urday evening, under the .direction of Rev. J. Charle, tWas attended hIy a very large and asipaeeintive 'itidience; thai the entertainment passed off with great eclat, and that the proceeds exceed idall expectations, footing up about $325 ex clusive of expenses. With this sum a new organ has been purchased for, the. Catholic Church, and the instrunienthas already arrived and been placed in the church. In next issue we shall give the detailed report of the concert which its character and the merits of the perform ers deserve. Go away fromn home to get home news. A North Louisiana paper says: Recently in Donaldsonville two Da goes got into a rumpus about a woman, and shot each other so badly that both are expected to die from the Wounds. Only one of the men was dfungetou y wounded, and he has since recovered; and fronrinformation we have but re cently received, it appears that on% the injure4 j sties was lot boao4neb'ihei the quarrel at all, but that the principal shootist was the husband of the woman invol ed, ife )caped unhurt llThft fiat parts unkUw . 4frery peculi*rfea tore of this affair is that no arrests have been made in wanection with it, the ex ceebef ling tthmai'one of, tahu. partiuipants or bystanders are whiling to testify in r. lation to the particulars of the affray.

Poch6 of St. James, brother of Judge F. P. Poche of the Supreme Bench. Judge Sims has long occupied a foremost position at the Ascension bar, and has #icquired a repu tation in his profession which strongly commeauds the new firm-tI, the people of St. James and insures its success. Mr. Pochie is a yenng attorney of excellent qualifications, who has had the advan tage of studying under and practicing in connection with his gifted brother, Judge Poch6, and he will prove a valua. ble co-adjutor to his senior partner in conducting the business of 64ue & Pochl. A Brilliant Publication. Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine for May is a remarkable unuber of this always entertaining, instructive and edifying periodical ; and is highly creditable to the talent, carefulness and industry of the editor.

There are good, solid articles, replete with information; essays; serial and short stories; adven inres; sketches; poems; biographies, )hituaries, etc., etc.-all deserving of warm coulmendation-and scattered throughout are brilliant literary gems. rhe illustrations number probably one hundred, and exhibit the best style of rood engraving. The opening article, 'Mohammed and his Religion," and 'Martin Luther," a biographical study, ire exceedingly interesting. In the de artmient of fiction, " Be-Be, the Nail naker's Daughter," and "Little Hinges" ire continued with increasing interest; uid there are several admirable short' tories by popular writers. The poems ire very meritorious; thp miscellany un isually abundant, as are also the Reli ;ious Notes and News at Home and Lbroad.

Judge Duffe'and Distr*t Attoiney Earhart were served with a writ of prohibition, sued out of the Supreme Court by coun sel for Judge Cheevers, comnmagding thain to poeilehb ftirtlii in thecase of the State ex rel.

We notice that in the reportorial de partment of the New Orleans Democrat this case has again been referred to as a contest between Jutdges Duthm l and Chee vers., Th title ti a misutomner, as we ex plained last week, and as the most cur sory glance at the record will clearly show, and we suggest to our contempo rary the manifest injhstice and impro priety of attemtpting to plalcei Judge Duf fel, eveit by jiuferenee, in the false and ridiculous position (of seekiing to preside in a case wherein he is represented to be omie o tthh litigniists, Judge Duffel hus ito more iuterestjm ~Jw-.itcotae pf .thet pro ceeelitng against Judge Choeaers -thtan Is possessed by any other member of the district bar who is comtp~etenit to till the Judgeship aid the action involv-es no claim to the position iii his bhealf. Fovertr and Distress., That poverty which produces the great est distress is not of the purse but of the blood. Deprived of its richness, it he conmes scant and watery, a condition termed ninqte sn meiie;i writings. Given this condition, and scrofulous swellings and sor,.s, SeeIaderosde throat ea nt nsi l ark' among the common results. Therefore, if you are a sufferer from thin, poor blood, do not hesitate, but employ Golden Medical Discovery which enriches the blood and radically cures those affections by striking at tc .root of thp evil and removing the ca'use. For all bronchial, throat, and lung affections, sever lingering conghs, weak lungs, consumption in its early stages, asthma and kindred affections, Dr. Pierce'sGolden Medical Discovery is the sovereign remedy, anm has outrivaled alt its competitors. It is harmless in any condition of the system, yet powerful to cure. Druggists sell it. "ADVANCE AND RETREAT" is the title of the posthumous book of General J. B.

It is very handsomely printed, octavo' size, containing 360 pages, with a hand some heliographic portrait in full mili tary costume, and a fine line engraving of the warrior in citizen's dress. Both are excellent likenesses. The book also has four lithographic maps of battle fields.

He is an energetic, com-. jetent and popular teacher. No school jas yet been established in the-upper portion of the sixth ward, be cause the local director has been unable, so far, to procure a suitable building for its accommodation. This section of the parish has ben sadly deficient in the educational facilities afforded its resi dents, and it is to be hoped some citizen will be found with sufficient public spirit to afford the School Board the use of a building that will serve the purpose of a school-house. A meeting of the Board of School Directors will be held at the Secretary's office, next Saturday, for reorganization and the transaction of snch other busi ness as may be presented. We hope a quorum of members will be secured this time. A STRIKE.-The laborers upon Tu reand's Brul6 plantation, in the lower part of this parish, and on MrsJacobsha gen's Union plantation in the upper part of St. James, struck for higher wages during the early part of the week, de manding seventy-five cents per day and rations. There has been no interruption of work on Tureaud's front place, nor \vas there any indication up to yester day, that the laborers of the Burnside or other neighboring places would partici pate in the strike. Yesterday morning, however, the hands on Burnside's Conway and Orange Grove places refused to turn out to work when the bells rang, and about 10 o'clock they formed agang, all mounted on horses, and marched two-by-two over to the Clark, Donald son and Riverton places and compelled the laborers there to suspend work un der pain of violence. should they refuse to comply with the demand. Affidavits will be made against the lenderg of the movement this morning and it is to be I hoped lje$beriff will meet withmno app position in executing any warrants that may be placed in his hands, in order that our parish may not become the scene of such displays of lawlessness as attended the strikes in parishes below l us. It is important that our laboring classes Vhoul have a correct apprecia tion oftheir rights and privileges and of the restriction placed thereon by the laws of the land. Every man has a right to estimate the value of his own labor, and to- work, or refuse to wor, for any rate df compensation it pleases him to accept or reject, and he is likewise privi leged to induce othere, by 4eeilgmssion, to adopt his way of thinking; but the moniett bhvintplrys threats or violence - for this bamiose, he ;places bhianeet out side the pale of the law, violates rights co-equal with his own and becomes a veritable '!bulldozer." S MILTARY FiOLIC.-Sunday afternoon, the 18th inst., the members of Cofield's BattefOC., aoewiipanied by the Inde pendant Brass Band, jumped into a couple of large cane carts kindly loaned them by Messrs. Hanson & Lemann and went down the river to pay a visit to their estimable friend and patron, Mr. J. C. Cofleld. The merry cavalcade was led by a barouche containing Col. A. J. Bachemir., Capt. D'E. Jones, Lients. La fargue and Earhart and Mr. James Angus tin, reporter for the New Orleans Demo crat. The band furnished an abundance of lively music on the way down and back, and the party veritably " aroused the natives " along the route. Arrived at Mr. Cotield's beautiful home, the visi tors were cordially welcomed, and after a brief address by Capt. Jones, a serenade by the band and a display of drill on the spacious grounds in front of the residence the Battery and its friends were invited in to partake of refreshments provided for the occasion, consisting of several tine brands of liquors, a delicious cham pagne punch and cakes galore, to which amplejustice was done. Toasts to the health of ttub princely host and his fair lady, and other appropriate subjects, were quaffed with enthusiasm. After a most agreeable half-hour spent tu social converse, the Battery reformed in line, the b d gave a parting airT and. t'e wtlel'c e intruders took their leave. Get ting again into their vehicles, the party were quickly eonveyed back as far as the hospitable residence of the Gaudin broth ers and their estimable relative Mr. Cam ille Mollere, where a delightful hour was spent, partaking of refreshments, danc ing and chatting. The gentlemen and ladies of the house entertained their guests in their usual perfect manner and all regretted the arrival of the time to depart. The Battery marched back from Gaudin's, the carts having been oefm$ home from there. Arrived at the Lee Hotel the musicians and soldiers took a parting "smile" upon the invitation of Lients. Klopman and Lafargue, and then dispersefi atqkg 4ngapmeaapseftergeon and evening of the amost unalloyed pleas are to all coucerued.
