See advertise olent. More nice peaches! Our portly, good looking colored friend, Euanuel Bercier, Esq., has favored is with three large and beautiful peaches dangling from a single twig, a bunch that delights the eye and makes the mouth water. The work of driving the piling for the new Bayou Lafonrcho bridge is pro gressing favorably, though there has been some delay caused by tardiness in the delivery of the timber required for the job. Mr. Kauffman expects to have all the piles driven within twenty days,. we understand. Official notice Is given in.tls issue of the Cplltr of the following applications: 1. Jos. N. Gisclard to be appointed ad Ininistrator.of thIe succession of Widow Jacques 'Panl Guedry; 2. Erneste Verron to be appointed administratrix of the succession of J. N. Rousseau and Ezilda Richard, his wife. Capt. A. II. Sharp of the steamer Min nie has sent us a piece of a cypress knee which has grown into a very peculiar shape. Held in one position it has the appearance of the head of a (log or some similar animal, with open mouth; in an other, it looks not unlike a rabbit's head. The wood is nearly as light as cork. Mr. Luke Eris has fully recovered from the injury to his ankle caused by a piece of timber falling on it. Mr. Charles Jambois, who had his foot severely cut and bruised by a piece of the cog-wheel which broke at Brand's saw-mill, is also getting along well and will soon be all right again. The broken wheel has been replaced and the hBrand mill is in full blast once more. Ritcher, Dyer & Co., manuflcl irers of saw-mill machinery at Hlamnilton, Ohio, have shipped to Mr. Felix LeBlanc of DIonaldsonvillo onle of the largest saw mills they have ever constructed. Mr. Lelanc has received a bill of lading for thlionill and expects it here by to-morrow or Monday. This enterprising citizen will soon be in readiness to begin making Iumber on a large scale. Rev. Father Cuppens, pastor of the Catholic Church at this place, has re ceived a consignment of iron rails to be usedl in the construction of a railway to extend froim the bank of the river to the location of the new church in process of erection. The object of this road will be to facilitate the transportation of heavy articles to be used in the construc tion of the new edifice, and particularly the mauble pillars which are to be shipped here from Belgium. l)r. J. 11. Vandegrifl, Coroner of As cension, has recently purchased fromll Mrs. E. Voun IIofe, for account of his cldest unmarried daughter-an enmanci pated minor-the property situated on Lafourche street betwecn Opelousas and t Attakapas, opposite the higlh-water lo cation of the Bayou Lafourche ferry. 4Ir. Vandigriff has occupied the property b as a residence and office, and will be n found at the new location by all who i have occasion to nccd his official or pro- f fessional services. ( Bly advertisement in this number of the CIIIIn.e, a committee appointed by the Board of Directors of the Donaldson ville Bridge Company calls for bids for the construction of the earthwork ap proaches to the bridge on either side of the Bayou Lafourche. Contractors will find this a good opportunity to obtain a cash job. Sealed bids must be handed in at the CmIEF office by 10 o'clock next Saturday .morning, the 13th instant. For further information we refer to the advertisement and to Capt. M. W. Dar- 1 ton, supervising engineer of the Bridge n Company, who will furnish all necessary specifications for the work. A number of inquiries having been made on the subject, it is definitely an nounced by Mr. M. R. Spelman, general freight and ticket agent of the N. O. Pa cific railway, that no passengers will be t taken from Donaldsonville or any other way station, on the Baton Rouge excur- C sion train to-morrow. Mr. Spellan says all the company's available coaches will be overcrowded at Now Orleans and that there will be no room oil the train after leaving that city. We are told that the railroad company has accommodations for only about S00 passengers, whereas more than 1500 tickets for to-morrow's f excursion have already been sold. lion. Morris Marks, Collector of Inter nal Revenue for this State, spent several 1 days in Donaldsonville this week, look ing after the interests of the Schonberg minors in connection with the Bayou Lafourche ferry privilege. The ferry had been sequestered at the instance of Judge Marks, who is tutor of the minor heirs of Marx Schonberg, but the suit has been compromised and the ferry privilege will be sold to effect a paritition among the heirs. Judge Marks was ac companit'd to I )onaldsouville by one of his deputies, Mr. Piecrson, formnlyv lone of the most efiicicint oficers of the New ()rleans Metropolitan detective force, who made a number of quiet calls upon 1I t',!ti, t l ' e eale s tý, s.1 if theiri ., teml'i/ll m't'e v :" !:e fi('m ' -ll e' ý\' rl'- " ().

That the Port Barr.ow young lady ;is informed that Capt. Joe was not going fishing when be was inquiring for " My net." That Tomyas disposed to kick altopt that paint shop rap, but his good humor returned when he found that only one of the " My net" hunters had een spot ted. That On Dit has similar rods in pickle for a tanmi.r of the oboys. That Slim Jim is training to be a pro .fcsiional umpire and has closed his base Sall gasworks for the season, ~t'd conse quently, That the occupation pf the Burnaides' chief gasser ap-Pierres.to be gone. That we can't vouch for the truth of the report that Capt. Grnt!nmy worked his passage down on the Gay. That Tom has received another letter from Sophie, and although he obeyed her injunction not to Jet Little J.nmmie get.hold ofit, he exhlibited it in-tte ice house all the same. That several of the Terpsics appear to be struck on a Dahm girl they met in Baton Rouge. That another young lady captured at least three hearts and the trio looked like sic(k) Terps when they found she was mortgaged. That Uncle Ben was relieved to find it was not a spider. Thait we wonder what makes Q. M. Sergt. Bill blush whenever the boys whis tie "Take your time, Miss Susie." That Sylvan had better look sharp or Julius will Block him out. That Pretty, Slim Jim and Our Secre tary were all mashed by the same girl. That a Baton Rouge girl thinks one of our boys decidedly original. That another says she doesn't like partners who try to fly while dancing. That there's no use in being elected Speaker if you don't get a chance to spout your speech after committing it to memory. That Little Dick had better brush the rust off his dancing machines, because the Baton Rouge girls all want to try em. That we wonder why Kang so posi tively denies any knowledge of the ex istenceof that young lady he met in Baton Rouge t That certain young ladies made a big mistake when they expressed the opin ion that " Misery " was tame, and That some of tlhemi found out the con trary at their own expenso. That the President pr'o tent. wants to know who stole that duster. That the young Terpsichorean whose hat went overboard on the return trip looked Pretty dilapidated when he lan died. That a certain Red 8tick belle 'has highly developed powers of imitatiop, and That the boys enjoyed the pantomime wonderfully. That the Terpsics who didn't go are jealous and want get up another excur sion. Tha Cutamer enntainnmm tn 'mamiva u thu The CuNIz eontinuetle to receive " the best peach of the season." The latest and largest specimen of the fruit we have yet seen or tasted was presented to us week before last by Jean Fevrier, Esq., and it was a daisy and no mistake. It measured 94 inches in circumference and was rosy, juicy and luscious in propor tion. This beautiful peach was one of seven that grew in Mr. Fevrier's garden on a young tree grafted on a plum tree. This kind of grafting imparts hardiness and long life to the peach tree, the pluin tree exceeding the peach in those quali ties, particularly in our climate and soir, where the peach is short-lived. A largo crowd gathered on the river bank at the ferry landing, last Sunday noon, to witness the ceremony of baptiz ing one male and three female candidates for admission to the Nazarene Baptist Church. Rev. Thos. Forest of Carroll ton preached a sermon at the church, after which the congregation marched to the river, escorting the candidates for haptism. The ceremony of imnnersion was conducted by Rev. Spencer lIobert son, assisted by Deacon Edmond iDavis and others. The interest of the occasion was cub;nucc by the singing of hymns, in which the entire congregation joined while marching to the river and during the baptizing. Ascension Hook and Ladder Company held its monthly meeting Monday eve ning. The two Babcock fire extinguish cs contracted for by this company are expected to arrive here shortly. These chemical engines can be run to a fire by hand and only require four or five men to handle and operate them. They have a capacity of about sixty gallons each, and the advantage of having a pair is, that while one is beiug exhausted, the other can be charged, thus insuring a continual stream of the extinguishing fluid as long as required. These engines will be found particularly serviceable at the beginning of a fire, and whenever they can be got on the ground in season, their efficacy will be very great. We regret to learn that our genial friend and popular fellow citizen, Iluery Hether, Esq., lmet with a painful acci dent on Wednesday last. While em ployed in helping to remove a portable engine and boiler from the river bank at the Tip Landry place, Mr. IIether had his foot caught under one of the rollers on which the machinery was being moved, and the roller passed completely over his foot and ankle, bruising them very severely. We are glad to learn, however, that an examination has dem onstrated that no bones are broken, and that with good nursing of his swollen and inflamed member, our friend will sooi be aible to resume his accustomed avocations. Ell passaul, we must con gratulate him iupon his favorable pros pect for a splendid rice crop on the Lan dryv pl.'e, of which we nulderstanld he is thelet" s,..tt We had the pleasure of making a trip to Baton Rouge last Monday,o q,t@e first passenger train that ran to W.t city. l~4e..rad was in fine i4rkle, we set in a brand-new coach, malsethe trip in pleas- 1 ant company, were fanned by delightful breezes going and coming, hence could not fail to enjoy the excursion. Mr. H. S. Morse, Suporintendent of the road, was on,the traln,.and to him we are in debted for nunerous courtesies. At Bayou 9qula and Plaquenmie the arrival of ,lle train cretted general interest amoega.te inhabitants, while at Baton Rouge its cowing was welcomed by a sa Into from a small cannon, the tooting of I steam .whistles and other evidences of t popular rejoicing. We arrived opposite the Capital at 1:30 P. M., just on time, and the first welcome object we met on the hospitable soil of West Baton Rouge was the rotund and rosy form of our es- 1 timable cos'firre, Uncle Hlarry Hyams, editor of the Sugar Planter, from whom we received a hearty greeting. Crossing I the river on the Baton Rouge ferry-boat, we were amply rewarded for the jonrney I by meeting our genial contemporaries, t Gen. Leon Jastrenmski of the Capitolian and Col. K. A. Cross of the Advocate, be sides our good friends, Prof. Luke W. I Conerly of the Agricultural Department of the State University, Mr. W. A. Lc- r Sueur, publisher of the Capitolian, Mr. t Ed. S. Conerly, a member of the typo- & graphical staff of the same journal, and t Capt. John McGrath, a popular citizen of East Baton Rouge. At 2:30 P. M. the t train started on its return trip, which I was accomplished in two hours, inclu ding stoppages. Capt. John Cowden of Memphis, the distinguished and persis tent advocate of the Mississippi outlet theory as opposed to the jetty system, was one of the passengers making the excursion to Baton Rouge on Superin- 1 tendent Morse's invitation, and we were glad to have the opportunity to make 1 the eminent gentleman's acquaintance. The genial and handsome general ticket 1 agent of the railway, Mr. M. IR. Spelman, who had been at Baton Rouge several I days on business connected with the road, returned to New Orleans on the 4 first through train. O1ITUARlY.-We have heretofore inad vertently failed to chronicle the death of two well known citizens of this par ish, who departed this life during the month of July. Pierre Oscar Ayraud died at the resi dence of his son-in-law, )r. Jno. Duffel, in l)oualdsonville, on the 21st ult., at the age of 67. lie was, we believe, a native I and life-long resident of Ascension, hav ing long been one of the oldest and most respected citizens of the third ward of the parish. Ile held several local ofllices in the course of his long and honorable career, and in these, as in all the other 1 relations of his life he earned the esteem I and respect of his fellow-men. On the 16th of July Andrew Jackson Landry died at his home in the Crevasse settlement, fifth wadl, at the early age of 30. He had been in failing health for some months and had sought in vain for improvement by change of air and climate. He was a quiet, unassuming, industrious and upright young man, and enjoyed the respect of all who new him. He leaves a young wife, and, we believe, several children to mourn him. Yesterday morning our neighbor, Mr. Frank Martinez, lost his only child, a bright little boy of 15 mouths who, a fortnight ago, seemed the very picture of I health antl strontgh. We extend our sympathies to the afflicted parents, who, are called on for the fifth time to mournt the loss of an only babe. This morning at balt past 2 o'clock the soul of Pierre Louis Mailletto, one of the oldest citizens of Donaldsonville, took its rei flight for celestial regions. fMr. Maillette die had reached the advanced ag: of 72 ar years. lie led a quiet and blamleless life chi aind was universally esteemed. An aged º wife and two charming daughters are left to deplore his loss. The funeral Re takes place this evening at 5 o'clock. AAI., RI.oAD ACCIDENT.-On Thursday, I as the passenger train on the New Or leans Pacific railway was approaching 13 SPlaquemrino, on the up-trip, the locoumo- C tive and baggage car jumped the track GCi s and brought the train to a sudden stand- (I I still. Fortunately no lives were lost, no 1k one was hurt by the accident, and the Hl Slocomotive and car are said to have sus- Jo tained no damage. The passengers and MI mails for Baton Rouge and other points above the scene of the accident were conveyed to their destination on a con- to struction train, and the two coaches of - the passenger train which remained on the track were brought down by the I locomotive a freight train at a late hour on Thursday night. Yesterday morning a special engine went up the road, convey ing appliances to be used in getting tile ditched engine and car back on the rails, to do which it will probably be neces sary to build a track or siding complete ly around them. The accident has caused no suspension of travel or traffic on the road, and we have no doubt the track will be clear agailn before this item r reaches the eyes of our readlers. We have not vet learned the cause assigned for the locomotive and car leaving the rails. D. I. B. BAND.-The annual meeting of the Donaldsonville Independent Brass Baud, for the election of officers, took place Thursday evening and result ed in the re-election of all the former officers, with a single exception. Mr. J. Arthur Claverie, who formerly filled two positions as President and Leader, now , occupies only the latter, Mr. Juo. F. lii Terrio succeeding him as President. The de roll of officers is as follows: th President-Jno. F. Terrio, is, Secretary-W. D. Park, Treasurer-George Cire, Leader--J. A. Claverie. of After the election the boys adjourned to Ia 1 the Lee Hotel, where they pledged the gr I new officers in liquid decoctions of pro- t!i lmiscuous kinds, and drank to the coni- 1 - tinlued success of their ilonrislhing organi- re zation. We learn that tile Band intends giving some kind of a frolic in celebra- W tion of its anniversary, and a picnic oni the banks of Bayou Colrne eemls tlo be avored by la ajority of the ilembers. Li Trip of the Terpslehoreans. How the I4naldimvifle Boys Enjoyed themselves at Baton louge. Our special reporter fnrnishes the fol lowing account of the visit of the Terp sichoredn Social Club of Donaldsonville to Baton Rouge last week: After a pleasant trip up the river on the Morning Star, the Terpsics, accom panied by Capt. Jno. McGrath and 1i two charmingdaughters, landed in Batel Rouge at 5:30 Friday evening, and were warmly welcomed by. Messrs. Widney, Brunot and Groz, by whom they were escorted to the residence of Mr, Widney. Here we had the pleasure of meeting the charming lady of the house and sev eral other ladies, who entertained us with agreeable conversation for a half an hour, and then invited nos to partake of'lunch, which was relished exceeding ly by all the boys. Upon invitation of Messrs. Brunot and Groz, we bade our agreeable host and his lady as revoir and started out, as one of our boys expressed it, to " take in the town." During our stroll we visited the State House aPd feWc the work of re pairing it had progressed very rapidly. After repeated fruitless attempts to find our way-we at last arrived at the Capitol House, where, having secured rooms, we made our not very elaborate toilets, or, in other words, donned our $40 broadcloths (T) and made our way to the ball. Upon entering Pike's Hall, a beautiful sight presented itself to our view. Thu picture formed by those handsome and gallant cavaliers and beautiful and charming ladies, is one which will always hold the first place in the picture gallery of our boys' hearts. After we had been introduced to nimany of the fair daughters of the Ilighland City, finding that dancing was the order of the evening, we secured a partner and mingled with the gay couples in dulging in the spirit enlivening pleas ures of the Terpsichorean art. Among the fair ladies whom it was our pleas ure to meet and dance with, were Misses Lillie McConell, Mattle and Addie Mc Grath, Celina Dahm, Celestine Jastrem ski, Fanny Lefever, Carrie Block, Clara Arbour, Emma Roe, Dot Taylor and Celina Kungler. All of these were ac knowledged belles of the ball. Having enjoyed ourselves to our hearts' content, until 3 o'clock A. ai., and as the CHwIEF predicted, Danced all night, till broad daylight, And gone home with the girls in the morning, we repaired to the Capitol House and breakfasted. l)irectring our steps towards the wharf, we boarded the Morning Star and steamed away, homeward bound. Dur ing the return trip nothing of conse quence happened to disturb the quiet look of determined resignation worn by the sleepy members of the T. S. C. At 11 o'clock we bade Capt. Pennywitt a regretful as rrroir and landed in Don aldsonville oce0 I more, ooappletely fagged out. We hope as the muembers of the Tepsic. club have made the first trip, that the young gentlemen and ladies of Baton Rouge will before long give ns a chance of repaying in part the polite attentions and unbounded hospitality which were extended to us on all sides. For fear the sorrowful and resigned smile with which we aceompany the an swer to the oft-repeated question " Hlow did you enjoy it t" may be misinterpre ted, permit me to confess that the secret of it is that some among us have left our hearts in charge of certain fair daughters of the Ilighland City. Girls, treat them gently. In Ayer's Agne Cure we have a positive remedy for fever and ague.and all malarial tl disorders, and one entirely free from quinine, arsenic, or other injurious drugs. It is the tl chemical and medicinal triumph of the age. List of Letters Remaining in the Post-ool.ce at Donald- , sonville, Ascension parish, La., S August 6, 1881.
