Naval officer at-New Orleans, and Hoen. Andrew J. Dumont, chairman of the Republican State committee ap pointed by Gov. Warmoth, is desig ndtedtto fill the vacancy. The only known reason for the removal of Col. Lewis is his consistent and manly support of Gen. Giant for presidential nominee at Chicago. Any one faimil iar with the sentiments of the the Re publican masses of this State knows that Col. Lewis represented them faithfully, and his removal for this cause will not be likely to allay in any degree the disappointment they feel over the result of the national convention. If a crusade is to be opened against the Republican lead ers who hald the manhood to stand up for the people without regard to the behests of the office holders, the sem blance of a Republican organization may as well be abandoned, for it will be nothing but a hollow mockery and frand. Hon. Wvn. O. Rogers, Superinten dent of the Public Schools of New Orleans, tendered his resignation to the Acting Governor, leut was subse lquently iuduced to withdraw it. The unsatisfactory condition of the .work under his direction, arising from the totally inadequate revenues availa ble for the maintenance of the sclhools, discouraged Mr. Rogers and led to his desire to retire from the position he has filled so long and so efficiently. The ni fortunate state of affairs surrounding the system of pub lic education in New Orleans is in no wise due to any dereliction on the part of the worthy Superintendent, and we are glad to know that ihe has been prevailed upon to reconsider his resignation.

The return of Distrlet Attorney Ear hart from St. James, -where. the ession of District Court closed last Saturday, has been the signal for a continuation, in a new forme of proceedings,.against the-keepers of stores and otliea places of gablie ispaned .e contravention of the Police Jury's Sun day ordinance, and for the commence ment of a crusade against the public gambling antdtippling houses that have too long disgraced the town of Donald sonville. We can not better describe the nature of these proceedings than by reprodnecing in full the following official communication transmitted by the Dis trict Attorney tO Justice Dennis Butler of this ward: OFFICE OF DISTRICT ATTORNEY, 22nd Judicial District, Donaldsonville, La., July 13, 1880 lHon. Dennis Butler, Justice of the Peace, 4th ward, parish of Ascension, La.: Sir-Having been informed that a banking game, to-wit: keno, was carried on in the town of Donaldsonville, in this parish, on last Sunday, the 11th day of July, 1880, in the building situated at the corner of Mississippi and Lessard streets, in said town, all in violation of Act No. 12, General Assembly of Louis iana, approved February 6, 1870, amend ing Sections 911, 913 and 914 Revised Statutes of the State of Louisiana, and whereas it is made my duty as District Attorney, under the provisions of Section 2066 of the said Revised Statutes, where no complaint or declaration thereof has been made before any Judge or Justice of the Peace, to inquire cx-ofeli into the fact by causing all persons who are sup posed to have some knowledge of the fact to be summoned before any Judge or Justice of the Peace, that, their deposi tions may be taken, I, therefore, in my said otficial capacity request that you immediately cause to be sumuoned bie fore you, the following persons and, such others as you may know of, in order that their depositions mllly be taken as to their knowledge of the keeping of the said banking game and banking house in the said town of Donaldsonville, parish afore said, being particular to obtain the names of all persons who keep said game or banking house, and also all persons who aid and assist in keeping the same. The names of witnesses so far obtained are Messrs. P. Pedesclaux, Elphege Mire, E. F. Lamdry and Armand Bethancourt. In the event that the depositions of these witnesses dischlse the fact that such a game has been carried on in said town it will be your duty on such oath or other affidavit to issue your warrant, so that the Constable or Sheriff, or Dy. Sheriff shall cause the arrest of all persons keep ing and assisting in keeping said game, and also a sufficient authority for said officer nmaking said arrest to take into his possession and keeping all the tables, money, implements and other parapher nalia which may be used in keeping said game, so that the same shall be delivered to you for inventory. The said property so seized and inventoried to be kept by the proper officer, so that in the event of conviction of said parties, the same shall be sold for the benefit of the parish, as tihe law provides that the same is for feited on the conviction of the parties, for the use of the parish. I am also informed that the following misdemeanor, to-wit: violating Ordi nances Nos. 9 an:d 10, known as the Sun day law of the parish of Asceusion, has Ieen committed bIy the persons whose names are hereto annexed, on Sunday, the 4th of July, 1880, and tie 11th day of July, 1880. It is made my duty under said Section 2066, Revised Statutes, to cause all persons supposed to have kinowl egIe or Tile COurlllssoill o0 sa i1 mistlo mneanor to be summoned before a Judge or Justice of the Peace, so that their depositions may be taken. The annexed list are the persons you will cause to be summoned before you for that purpose, and your will please take their deposi tions at as early a day as possible, so that I can use them either to file informations against the said persons who, I am in formed, committed said misdemeanor, at the next regular term of the 22nd Judi cial District Court in this parish, or for the use of the Grand Jury at the regular term of said Court. I am also informed that " tippling" and "gaming" houses are being kept in the town of Donald sonville in violation of Section 908 of the Revised Statutes of the State of Louis iana. As yet I can not furnish the names of persons to be summoned before yon under Section 2066, but you will ascer tain through your Constable or the Sher itf, the names of their bar-tenders and other persons who visit said houses, take their depositions so that the District At torney or Grand Jury can act in the premises. Trusting that you will ren der all assistance to the State of Louis iana to suppress the vice of gamblinog in the town of Doinaldsoaville, and the vio lation of Ordinance Nos. 9 and 10, known as the Sunday law of the parish of As cension, I subscribe myself, your obdt. serv't, F. B. EARHART, Dist. Atty. 22nd Jnd. Dist., La. In accordance with the instriuctions of the District Attorney a number of the clerks and employees of the stores and places of business that were kept open on the Sundays above referred to, have been summnoned before Justice Butler and their depositions takeu. Evidence has also been adduced with regard to the conduct of public gambling houses in Donaldsonville, and immediate steps will be taken to suppress the unlawful business. Act No. 12 of 1870 provides that " Whoever shall keep a banking game or banking house at which money or any thing representing money, is bet or hazarded, or shall aid or assist in keep ing one, shall, on conviction of first of funse, be fined not less than $1000 or more than $5000, and on conviction of second offense, not less than $5000 nor more than. $10,000, and be imprisoned at hard labor not less than one nor more than five years." Section 4 of the same act declares it to be the duty of any public officer to ar rest and take into his custody any per son keeping any banking game or aiding and assisting in keeping same, together with all tables, money or representations of money, implements and other para phernalia that is used in keeping such banking house or in playing such game. On the conviction of the accused, the property is to be sold for the benefit of the parish. Section 6 defines the offense of keeping a gambling house or playing a banking game to be a crime and mis demeanor. Section 908 of the Revised Statutes de clares that whoever shall be guilty of keeping any disorderly tippling house or gaining house shall suffer fine and im prisonnlent at the discretion of the court, and be further condetaned to forfeit his iicenseFto ]*p a tuse of public resort' or entertainsment.. It will be seenitherefore, that intthe. course -e is taking, the District Attorney. is sustained by the plain letter of the law-in fact, that he is merely perform ing his sworn duty as a public .officer, and every official who does this is enti tled to the sympathy, countenance and co-operation of all law,$biding citizens. We are glad to, learn that there is qinite a geintM FdiAeii tion anmoiig ruer ohants who have heretofore opposed the Sunday law, to acquiesce in its require ments until a decision' of the contro versy is reached in the courts. We hope this report will prove true and that all the places of business in Donaldsonville .coming within the provisions of the or dinance will be closed on Sundays. This will give the practical test of the matter for which the Cnaiti has contended, and by which it proposes to regulate its fn ture attitude upon the Sunday closing question. Our motto is pro bono publico -we seek the accomplishment of the greatest good to the greatest number, and it is far from our desire or intention -to advocate any measure that will prove hurtful or oppressive to the interests of Donaldsonville, and particularly to the merchants and business men s hose capi tal, enterprise and public spirit form such a large factor in the progress and improvement of our town. If we differ with them upon a subject in which they have such deep concern as they have shown in the Sunday law, it is because we think they are mistaken in believing that the operations of the law will in junre then. If the result of experience should prove us wrong, we shall ac knowledge our error and exert the in fiuence of the CIEs' to have the injuri ous law so modified as to remove objec tionable features. We ask our nmerchants to be equally open to conviction and to afford an opportunity for the issue to be settled by the only test that will satisfy the minds of all concerned-that of a practical experiment.

Friedman, of the 4th ward of this parish, sitting as committing magistrate, exam ined sixteen persons charged with gam bling on the front galleries of the stores at Boutte Station, resulting in the com nitting of three of them to the District Court.-St. Charles Herald. This evil of public gambling at and around country stores prevailed to a great extent in Ascension until the Sunday law was enacted, but the en forcement of this law has abrogated the nuisai.ce. Donaldsonville is the only portion of our parish now cnrsed with the abomination, and its sup pression here is one-of the things -we expect to see accomplished in the near future. THE SUNDAY LAW!
