Everywhere throughout the country last Monday was observed as a day of fasting, prayer and mourniog. The re mains of our late beloved Pres'int, James A. Garfield, were consigned to the grave in Lake View Cemetery at Cleve land, and the funeral obsequles were of the most maguificent and impressive character. Many thousands of people were in atteedance. In all the cities, towns an4 villages of the land the jniversal grief was attested by an ueprecedented display of mourn ing emblems, the tolling of bells, firing of cannon, by funeral processions and the holding of memorial services in the churches of all denominations. In no city excepting Cleveland was the mournful occa sion more fitly com memorated or more ge$0eally observed than in New Orleans. An imposing funeral parade took place, ta which all the civic and military organizations of the city participated, the number of peo ple in line being estimated at fully 10, 000. This processipn excelled any pop ular demonstration that has occurred there since the dedication of the familiar statue of Henry Clay which graces Canal street. The nation weeps for a departed hero, patriot and statesman. May the sod rest lightly upon his cherished remains and his soul find eternal rest in the regions beyond the tomb where the spirits of the just are made perfect and sorrow, care and trouble are unknown. THE BATTLE OF HISTORY. One of our exchanges, commenting upon the report that Alexander H. Ste phens is engaged in writing a reply to Jeff Davis' Rise and Fall,of the Confede racy, says " war literature has about reached its end ;" that "there can be no good accomplished between the two sec tions by these discussions, and the sooner they are stopped the quicter will the North and South fraternize on a basis that pertains to their common interest." While all can appreciate the common dable motives which prompt this expres sion of sentiment, readers of history will regard the continued discussion of the events of our civil war as inevitable, and and will fail to estimate it as an appre ciable obsteele to the restoration of good feeling between the lately contending sections. The animosities whiclh it will create will be rather of an individual than a general character, and the effect produced by the war books issued up to this time show that even these will not be of a nature calculated to foment sec tional discord. Gen. Sherman's Memoirs were as sharply criticised by ex-Feder als as by cx-Confetlerates, and the dis Iputes provoked lby the volhnnes recently pullished by Mr. Davis have blen, a! Smlost wholly confinced to So0utlern anll . ex-Confederate;circles. One of the many truisms with which f the writings and nutterances of the - countrty's lamented President, James A. Garfield, have teemed, is that "After the battle of arms comes the battle of histo ry," and it im from thesepost bellum con troversies and'discussions that the unpre judiced commentators of the future will gather the materials for correct and im partial narratives ofour internecine con Ilict. GOVERNOR WILTZ. Governor Wiltz returned to New Or leans last week, having derived no beneo fit from his trip to Texas in search of health. Although surrounded by every convenience and comfort calculated to make travelung pleasant, the fatigue proved too great a strain upon his ex h:.uited system and his friends hurried back home with their patient, evidently fearing serious results from a further so journ abroad. Acting Governor McEnery at once visited Gov. Wiltz to tender a formal reo linquishment of the official tust which devolved upon him by reason of the absence of the Chief Executive from the State, but the Governor confessed his inability to assume the duties of his oflich at this time and requested his Lieutenant to continue the exercise of the gubernatorial functions until further notice. In view of these circumstances it can no longer be doubted that the people of Louisiana, in the ordinary course of af fairs, will soon be called upon to mourn the loss of their public spirited uld pa triotic Governor, Louis Alfred Willz. That dread disease, consumnion, has fastened itself upon himn and is steadily and surely sapping the foundations of his physical being. All the pwcers of human science and skill seem insufficient to ar rest the ravages of the fell destroyer, and w4jth every heart throb and pulse heat the young life draws nearer the verge of the grave, now close, too close at hand. In the mental contemplation of this spectacle all considerations of personal or political opposition to the past course of our Govelnor most disap. pear, and the people of the State, with one accord, will recall his virtues and creditable achievements, the name of which is legion. His energy, ability and personal probity have never been question&d, and even those who have at times condemned his political meth ods and associations, are more than willing in the light of subsequent events to concede the purity of his purposes anti the patriotism of his motives. There can be no doubt that he has felt a deep interest in the prosperity and advance mutnt of Louisiana, and that his official efforts as Governor have been inspired by an earnest desire to enhance the wel fare and prosperity of the people. When the time comets, therefore, that he will be called upon to lay down the burden of his life and pass away front earthl,. his loss will lhe mourned and hii manuy irtues extolled by the l,..ople of Louisiana, irrespective of pqlit:ca otr ot'.er diti.tnctio, s.

A special election was held in Madison r parish on the 10th ultimo to decide o whether a special levee tax of five uills s should be levied. The vote was almost unanimously in favor of the tax, viz: 220 for, 12 against. Carroll Jones, a colored farmer in 1 Natchitoches parish, has 350 acres of magnificent cotton, doubtless the finest in the State. Experts among Mr. Jones' neighbors have certified that 80 acres l will yield at least two bales to the acre, and that "' it actally beats any thing we 1 have over seen in the cotton line." 1 Three codtton gins have been destroyed t by fire'in Natchitoches parish during the 0 past six weeks. The latest was that of Mr. W. A. Ponder, who lost, besides the gin, all his farmuing implements, a wag onl, a cart and seven bales of cotton. Total value, 61500; no insurance. Mr. - J. A. SiAmpite's gin, with twenty bales y of cotton was bqrned the week before. l- Ili fires were caused by sparks from I the smoke stacks. lion. II. R. Stcle, President of the h proposed Natchez, Vidalia and Sabine e railroad, telegraphs from Now York that . he has secured sufficient capital to con e struct the entire line. Rev.

Mrs. Polk, daughter of lion. Hiram It. Lott of West Carroll, committed suicide by taking an overdose of morphine. The unfortunate lady was a sister of the young tuen who were recently killed by Deputy Sheriff Sage in the streets of Lloyd. Col. Lott has the universal sym pathy of the cofunmunity in his terrible triple bereavement. DeSoto parish is in an enviable finan cial condition. The outstanding indebt edness only exceeds the cash in the treasury by $21 63. The present rate of parochial taxation is eight mills. Hardy Price, a colored thief, entered the corn field of Mr. G. A. Zahn, near Baton Rouge, during the night, and while in the act of helping himself to corn was shot and killed by Mr. Zahn. A proposition to extend the corporate limits of Mansfield was defeated by a ,vote of two to one at a special election held' for the purpose of deciding the lqucstion. A colored man named Louis Johnson was picked up on the railroad track near Mansfield, with two severe wounds on his head, which may prove fatal. It is supposed he fell from a train. A fine steam gin and grist mill belong ilg to Mr. I. G. Gayden, near Clinton, burned during the night recently, with twenty-five bales of cotton. The loss was over $4000 no insurance. The. premises of Mr. Arcade Gauthier, at St. Martinsville, were set on fire by a Negro named Brown, but fortunately only a stack of hay was burned. The incendiary was captured and narrowly escaped lynching. This was the third attempt at incendiarism that had occur red in St. Martinsvillo and vicinity that week. The court-house at St. Martinsville caught fire from a cigarette or cigar stub thrown on the floor of the court room which was covered with saw dust. The flames were extinguished before much damage was dope. Minsfield Anderson is in jail in Pointe Coupdc parish charged with the murder of Israel Warner at Cane Brake Settle ment on the 17th of September. Both parties colored. Mr. It. L.

Josephus Fairchild, a Negro who had jusit been sentenced to death for murder, at !.Lake Charles, made a break for liberry while being conveyed back to jail, and refusing to halt, was fired upon by four Sheriffs deputies and mortally wounded. Hie died that same night. KILLING IN r. JA3ES. -A peculiar shooting affair,esulting in the death of one man and to wounding of another, occurred at thetore of Mr. Win. Venus, in the upper Frt of St. James parish near the AseAsion line, Wednesday evening, the Ith of September. Dick Jrown, an oh offender and a fugitive frojm justices wose name is quite fami liar to most of or local readers, was ar rested in St. .Ames by Deputy Sheriff Frank McDonall, on Tuesday, having in his possession a nare bnlonging to Capt. John Dolan of Ibervile which Brown had evidently :stolen. The thief was taken before Justice DeLowenstrom, but while the commf|uent was being prepared Brown spang through the back door of the ofliciand made his es cape, minrs hat, cot and one shoe. Next evening McDould was on his way .to Donaldsonville, o the track of two cow thieves, and meBrown in the road in front of Burnside Clark place. Bo fore the oficer coul intercept him, the nimble fugitive jupped the fence and rushed into the cdo, making his way back to the Conw( place, where he is known to have syeed all night at the house of a friend., Proceeding on o the Houmas Store, McDonald met Iter Green and Dave Mitchell, two cored men employed as laborers on one t the Burneide places, and told them ifhey would go down to the store of Mr. nus they could capture a horse thief foiwhose arrest a reward was offered. Grin and Mitchell agreed to undertake ti: task and started for the store, one mied with a razor and the other with revolver. When they entered the styo it so happened that Gabe Ross, Cotable for the fourth ward of St. Janu, was the only person there exceptinghe proprietor. With out a word ofxplanation, Green and Mitchell drew ieir weapons and star ted for Ross, astming that ho must be the fugitive tl4f for whom they were looking. Astouled by the sudden as sault and findi- himself in imminent danger, Ross piled out a revolver and opened fire on is assailants, shooting Mitchell in thl abdomen and through the left arm al Green in the thigh. Mitchell was taen home and died that night. Next mrning Ross appeared at IIonmas store inuiring for Mitchell and Green, havingprocured a warrant for their arrest, an was surprised to learn of the fatal rest of his shooting. lHe at once startedack to St. James, with the avowed imution of reporting the affair to the auroritics and giving him self lup. Whathas been done in the case we have uclearned, but it is to be supposed that he Constable was at once absolvoed fi blame when the cir cumistances of t0 extraordinary affray bherllle known. Dick Brown, io slippery rascal who was the indirect ,use of all this trouble, still roams at larh, defying all attempts to bring him to rcount for his numer ous misdeeds. Ob Bob Jones, a colored man who is dowtless a confederate of Dick's, appearedht St. James after the latter's escapefrodthe office of Justice DeLowenstrom an. presented an order for the delivery otihe mrare purporting to emanate fromi Capt. Dolan. The document was at nee classed as a for gery and it was etermined to place Jones under arrest,trt he smelt a mouse and escaped beforelands could be laid upon hint. Our heartfelt symgthies are extended to our bereaved frkids and contempo raries, Mr. Jona C. 'hite of the Gretna Courier and Gen. Lea Jastremski of the Baton Rouge Capitokn, in the sad afflic tions which they ave recently ins tained. Mr. Whitehas lost two of his sons within the pas three weeks, John Hall White and Millrd Filmore White, the former 31 years f age and the latter nearly 33. We wee well acquainted with Millard, a rest estimable young man, who enjoyed he esteem of all who knew him. He sered in the capacity of a nurse and subseqlently a health officer for the Ascension Howard Association during the yelow fever epidemic of 1878, winning goldes opilions from all for his valuable and efficiunt services in these capacities. Litterly he had been em ployed on the reportorial staff of the New Orleans Democrat, his special de partment beirl the gathering of news on the right bank of the river. lie leaves a yonngwife and an infant child bereaved by tliloss of a kind and lov ing husband aid father, and his untime ly death is deeply mourned by a large circle of relaties and friends. Gou. Jastrenski has been called upon to suffer the les by death of his only daughter, Estele Mario Jastrcmski, a sweet little gil scarcely 10 years old, whose tencder graces and angelic dispo sition drew torards her the hearts of all with whom shocame in contact. To Mr. G.

E. Bentley, Esq., of the Donaldsonville CIEP was in oawn yesterday, taking a flying trip here to greet friends and .attend to business connected with the growing suc cess of his enterprising journal.

Hpw tile Burial of President Garfield was Commemoitated in Donaldsonville. Every store, shop and office in Donald sonville was closed last Monday, in response to the proclamations of the President, the Governor and the Mayor, and most of the places of business were draped in mourning. Besides those mentioned in our last issue, elaborate and tasteful displays of mourning decorations were made at Phoenix Hall by the. Cofield Auards, at the Court-Ppuse, the Assessor's office, the stores of Messrs. Park, Gendran and Weber, the millinery estab lishments of Mrs, M. Blum and Mrs. J. Fev rier, the law office of Mr. Fred. Duffel, the Blue Bucket Exchange and the post-office. Detachments of the Cannoneers of Don aldson and Cofield Guards fired half-hour salutes with their brass field pieces through out the day, the Cannoneers from the levee opposite Crescent Place, the Guards from the public square. The Guards opened at the ringing of the angeles with a salute of thirteen guns and closed with a like salutl at sundown. The Cannoneers concluded their firing with a full national salute of S thirty-eight guns at sunset. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon a funeral procession started from Blue Bucket Hall and moved through the principal streets of the town, and during its solemn march the sI church, fire and wharf bells tolled mourn fully. The general officers of the procession were: Grand Marshal, Heon. Pierre Landry; Aids, A. T. Grigsby, Oscar Landry, Jos. A. Duffel, Charles Shallowhorne, Jas. McCray. 1 The order of forming was as follows : C 1. IIearse. 2. Crescent Brass Band. 3. Cofield Guards; Captain D'E. Jones, Lieuts. F. B. Earhiart and R. McCulloh. 4. St. Joseph Brass Band. 5.

Church, the Nazarene, Secontl, Mount Ol ive, Zion Travelers, Revs. Osborne Dicker son's and Adam Cantey's Churches, fol lowed by a long line of peolle in vehicles and on horseback. As the long and inTposing procession filed past Crescent Place and the public square, the military detachment located at each point fired a three gun salute. Returning to Blue Bucket Hall, the parade was dismsissedland all of the great crowd who could find standing room inside of the hall and near the doors and windows gathered there to listen to appropriate ad dresses from Messrs. F. B. Earhart and L. E. Bentley. The speakers briefly reviewed the life, character and touching death of President Garfield, and their tlcme and its treatment met with feeling responses fiom the sympathetic audience. The preparatiou.sfor this creditable dem onstration were instituted at a meeting held last Saturday evening presided over by Mr. V. C. Cantrolle, Mr. Joseph Thomp son acting as secretary. The committee of arrangements consisted of Messrs. W. J. Neams, O. P. Martin, Joseph Thompson, Oscar Landry and V. C. Cantrelle. Memorial services were held during the day at all the churches of the town and parish. Lazarus Mayer, an old citizen and merchant of the town of Harrisburg, Catahoula parish, was shot and instant ly killed in his store by Elinus Wiggins. The killing has all the appearance of a cold blooded munder.
