Fifty cents each. d Mr. Ambroise Rongean, Sr., of Donald sonville, who is on a visit to France, has favored us with several copies of late Paris papers, for which he has our thanks. " Among the attractions of the Indepen dent Brass Band's concert on the 24th r inst., will be a "mystic drill," by mem bers of the band who belong to the local C military companies. 1 a The Democratic-Conservative parish executive committee met at Mr. Pugh's a office on Tuesday last and adopted a set resolutions which are published else where in to-day's CHIEF. Dr. J. D. Hanson has removed his of floe from next door to the Central Drug a Store, to the corner of Iberville and I Houmas streets, diagonally opposite Dr. I McGalliard's new residence. Mr. G. W.

M. By request I of Concert Committee, A. GINORY, Chairman. Dr. B. Claverie surprised his friends t this week by going unexpectedly to , New Orleans and returning with a bride, 1 nee Miss Octavie Julian of that city. I We add our felicitations to those of the I many friends of the happy couple and wish them a long life of connubial bliss. 2 SHELLY NURsERIE.--Parties ini want V of fruit trees, flowers, shrubs, bulbs -evergreens, sines, etc., would do well it to give a trial to the Shelly Nurseries, 5s Bay St. Louis, Miss., before purchasing a elsewhere. Mr.W. A. Whitfield, the pro- a prietor of these nurseries, advertises to p furnish everything in his line "choice, B beautiful and cheap." b District Court has been in session this r week, considering criminal cases in P which the accused waived right of trial V by jury. Some seven or eight of these a were disposed of, and in every instance c a plea or judgment of guilty was en tered. We shall present in our neit is sue a detailed report of the business 1 transacted by the court. The favorable attention of our readers , who may visit Now Orleans is called to the advertisement of Mr. P. Forget's boarding and lodging-house, 107 Custom house street, between Royal and Bour bon streets. It is a well kept house, where good meals, pleasant rooms and I clean beds are always obtainable on the most favorable terms--and don't you Forget it ! M. Israel & Co. are taking Donaldson ville by storm with an avalanche of new goods. The vanguard of a great host of boxes is pouring in from the business marts of the North, East and West, and the popular corps of salesmen, under the direction of those affable young gentle men, Messrs. Henry and Meyer Netter, are busily engaged in unpacking the goods and arranging them in proper or der for the heavy Fall and Winter trade the house has in prospect. Mr. Emile M. Cohn, formerly of this parish, is now employed as a salesman in the large and well known house of Leon I Godchaux, manufacturer of and dealer in clothing and gentlemen's furnishing goods, 81 and 83 Canal street, New Or leans. Mr. Cohn is a polite and agree able young gentleman, very popular wherever known. He has many friends in Ascension who will not omit to give him a call at Godchaux's when visiting the city. Those not before aware of the fact will be interested in learning from the new advertisement in another column that Mr. Sam. St. Martin of this parish has opened a restaurant and oyster saloon at No. 32 Royal street, New Orleans, and is said to be doing a thriving business. A friend writing to us from the city says, "Sam keeps a first-class honse-I have tried it." We know many more of Sam's 4ountry friends and acquaintances who will give his restaurant a trial when ever they chance to visit New Orleans. Our young friend James H. Proffitt, Esq., is cashier of the establishment. Any one having information concern ing the whereabouts of Mevric H. Quill will confer a favor on his wife by com- - nmunicating the same to her, addressing her at Kennerville, La., in care of Mr. S. Felix, Fairview plantation. *aill is de ceribed as a small man, about five feet in height, with small blue eyes, dark hair, wears No. 5 shoes, and is about 30 years of age; is a native of Cork, Ire land, and a hard drinker. Mrs. Quill has beau informed that her husband died in this parish a month ago, and is anxious to learq whether the report is true or not. Jadge Henry 0.-Maher has imbartked in the hasihess of torekeeping, and harw established himself in one of the neatest I little groceries in Donaldeonville, at the a cornet of St. Patrick and Claiborne a streets. He has a fine stock of fresh a goods, comprising every thing usually to I be found in a well ordered grocery sto re v and proposes to keep pace with our most I enterprising and liberal merchants in r the matter of reasonable prices. The a r. Judge has a legion of friends in this a e community, and we shall be surprised if a they fail to accord him a generous share I of their patronage. es a Sheriff Burton of Ellis county, Texas, arrived here Tuesday, having in custo dy David D. Carter, the escaped convict ;, whose capture in the parish of St. James es was reported by our correspondent K. L. A. From Mr. Burton it was learned that Carter escaped from jail while awaiting th the result of an appeal from a sentence of n- five years' imprisonment at hard labor be for horse stealing; that he gave a forged draft to his lawyer for the latter's fee, c d- and will now have to answer for forgery c and jail breaking in addition to the orig inal crime charged against him. The Sheriff left with nis prisoner by Tues r day's train, bound for Texas. n We were gratified, Wednesday eve- t tb ning, by a visit from our genial friend n- M. W. Darton, Esq., the well known al civil engineer, and Col. G. A. Eberhart, c agent for the King Iron Bridge and Man ufacturing Company of Cleveland, Ohio. B The King Company is one of the largest and wealthiest bridge-building firms in the country, and is fulfilling a number r e- of important contracts in the Southern States. It is anticipated that a contract )f- will be made with this company to con mg struct the proposed bridge to span Bayou ad Lafourche at Donaldsonville, and Col. t )r. Eberhart's visit to our town is connected with this matter. He is a very pleasant r- gentleman and we trust his sojourn here le will prove at once enjoyable and profit he able. he The large advertisement of that well en known merchant, Mr. Bernard Lemann, reappears in the CnHIF and makes proc lamation to the public of the receipt of fresh and new goods, comprising the choicest selections in the grocery line. Mr. Lemann's mammoth establishment is known to most of our renders as the largest and most complete of its kind in this section of the country, and in the specialties which he advertises as well as ds the myriad of articles to which no refer to ence is made, the proprietor offers the le, best goods at city prices. As long as y. Donaldonville can boast such an estab he lishment as Lemann's, there is no excuse id for people of this vicinity sending to e. New Orleans for their. groceries, pro nt visions, hardware, furniture, etc. 5, DRAMA AND MUSIc.-We take pleasure l11 in announcing that the Fall amusement e, season will open on the 24th inst., with ig a grand musical and dramatic entertain o- ment at the Phmniz Hall unner the aus to pices of the Donaldsonville Independent 1 na D .... U" ....] A .........4 ....... i. tF 4 .o .. Brass Band. A concert committee has been appointed and is already at work ar ranging the programme, which will com- gi prise many attractive features. The best s vocal and dramatic talent of this and adjoining parishes has already been se- el cured for the occasion, and all that re mains to assure the complete success of eI the affair is the liberal patronage of the public, which we are confident will be accorded. Tickets will be on sale at the principal stores of Donaldsonville, or may be procured from members of the band, at 50 cents each. tl THE LATE J. A. BRAUD, JR.-The de- B mise of J. Adlard Brand, Jr., a deplora- I1 ble occurrence briefly reported in the la last issue of our paper, removed from ti this community one of its most promi- ii nent and respected citizens, who enjoyed P and merited the unqualified esteem of all v who knew him. A native and life-long P resident of Ascension, he was one of the cl citizens of the parish identified with the o interests of the people around him by p every.tie that can bind a man to earthly o matters. For years he owned and culti- E vated a small plantation on the left bank Ii of the Mississippi river, nearly opposite fi Donaldsonville, and met with the success a and prosperity in this occupation which fi he deserved. He was a devout member a of the Catholic Congregation of Ascen- p sion, one of the trustees or stewards of I the church, and, aided by his estimable wife, was always foremost in carrying i, out measures calculated to advance the t interests of the congregation. His energy and liberality in this direction made him an invaluable member of our Catholic community. He died on the fifty-second anniversary of his birth, within the cor responding hour of the day at which his first breath was drawn-his exact age was fifty-two years and one-half an hour. Mr. Brand leaves a widow and two chil- I dren-a son and daughter-to lament a bereavement which is to them irrepara- I ble on earth. As we stated last week, deceased was an honorary member of I Phoenix and Ascension fire companies, Cannoneers of Donaldson, Cofield luards J and the Independent Brass Band, and all these organizations, as well as a very large number of people besides, attended t the funeral, which was one of the most imposing, both in point of appearance and numbers, that has ever taken place in Donaldsonville. This display attested the universal esteem in which the de ceased was held. The cortege moved from the residence of Felix LeBlanc, Esq., where the remains were placed on their arrival by the train from New Orleans; the funeral services were conducted by Father Charles and three visiting priests, and a salute of three rounds of blank I cartridges was fired over the tomb by I detachments of the military companies. I The last sad rites performed, the mortal I remains of this good man and useful cit izen were placed in the quiet city of the dead; let us hope and believe that his immortal soul winged its flight to regions of eternal bliss, there to await a blessed reunion with those who held him nearest and dearest on earth. ' WA collector is visiting our local patrons with bills for their indebltedness, and we bespeak for himt the utmost con sideration at their hands, both for his own sake and ours. Owing to foice of circumstances a number of accounts have been allowed to run a long time which we know would have been settled promptly on presentation of bills; we regret this, as we know how much easier and more satisfactory it is to pay small amounts as they fall due, than to meet an aecurtalation of little sums "in a lump." We beg the indulgence of those who may be inconvenienced in any de gree in meeting such bills, and we prom- C ise them the annoyance shall not occur again. "~Short reckonings make long friends," is one of the truest of maxims, at as every business man knows. If our oi patrons respond liberally to the demands our collector makes upon them, we shall w be enabled to enlarge the sphere of the CHIEF'S usefulness in a manner we have had in contemplation'some time, which will redound to the interests and credit of the community as well as to ourselves. Friends, will you aid us ? There is probably no house of enter tainment in New Orleans more widely or favorably known than "Fred's House," 106 St. Charles street, two doors above the St. Charles Theatre. The restaurant, supplied with all the substantials and delicacies the market affords, is kept open day and night, and the best board and lodging are furnished at lowest rates. Mr. E. W. Troegel is now sole proprietor of the establishment, his for mer partner, Mr. F. W. Hellmers, having retired from the business. Mr. Troegel knows how to keep a first-rate house, and does it. A CAKE WALK.-On the 18th of Sep tember an amusing and enjoyable enter tainment occurred in the lower hall of the St. Peter M. E. Church, under the auspices of the Ladies' Missionary So ciety, a benevolent organization highly esteemed for its good works among the colored people. The festival was desig; nated a cake walk and candy pulling, the principal attraction being the contest for three cakes to be awarded to the most graceful walkers. The hall was crowded, and the greatest interest was displayed in the proceedings. The first prize was won by Mr. J. R. S. Hallowell and Miss Louisa Dicks, the second by Mr. Preston Holmes and Miss Georgie Quezerque, the third by Mr. Chas. Shal lowhorne and Mrs. Virginia Harris. After the cake walk followed the candy pull ing, which afforded lots of fun to the participants. The entertainment yielded to the socit;ty's treasury the neat sum ot $38 20. CONSOLIDATION OF BANDS.-The fol lowing extract from the minutes of our leading musical organization will ex plain itself : DO-NALDSONVILLE, LA.. Sept. 30, 1880. At a meeting of the Donaldsonville Independent and Cofield Battery Brass Bands held on the 23rd inst., it was unanimously Resolred, That both bands be consolida- a ted and combined into one. A resolution was offered that the or ganization retain the name of Donald- F sonville Independent Brass Band, and the same was adopted. Thereupon the following officers were elected to serve for the ensuing year : President and Leader-J. Arthur Clay erie, Vice President-Lenard T. Duffel, Second Leader-John F. Terrio, Secretary-Wm. . D. Park, Treasurer-Geo. S. Cire. A true copy: W. D. PARK, Sect'y. D. I. B. B. We congratulate the members of both hle Independent and Cofield Battery Bands upon the fusion accomplished in inch a pleasant and satisfactory manner last week, and upon their judicious selec- 1 bion of officers. The new band, number ing more than twenty members, coiu prises talent that will make it one of the t very best in Louisiana. With a few weeks' t practice we believe it will not only ex sel any similar organization in the State, - iutside of New Orleans, but will com pare favorably with the leading bands of the metropolis. The new Independent Band made..first appearance in public t last Sunday afternoon, when it marched from Phtenix Hall to the wharf and back again, dispensing enlivening music in first-class style. Tuesday 'night the band serenaded Mr. P. Lefevre, the popular proprietor of the City Hotel, Mr. J. J. Lafargue, the genial host of the Robt. E. Lee Hotel, and were received with the hospitality which always character izes, those gentlemenain the treatment of their friends and guests. See new advertisement of Keating's Academy.
