At the recent thirty-sixth annual con

his advancement with pleasure and
whose good wishes will attend him in
his new and enlarged field of labor.
In consequence of the recent change
of schedule on the New Orleans Pacific
railway, the favorite little steamer Morn

Sara and all intermediate mail landings
at I o'clock P. M., half an hour earlier
than heretofore. This splendid boat con
tinues to give the most perfect satisfac

interested in the prompt and iable
transportation and delivery of on
her route. She is as regular as il
road train, and under the direction of
Capt. H. W. Pennywitt and his genial
associates has become as popular in her
present trade as she was when running
between Baton Rouge and Donaldson

in the ascendant and becomes brighter
the longer she shines!
If the committee on Mardi Gras
celebration appointed by the President
of Phcenix Fire Company has accom
plished any thing yet, the intelligence
has failed to find its way to the CnxEF
office. We presume the intended meet
ing at the Lee Hotel Monday night was
not held for the same reason that the
first one failed-the lack of a quorum.
The editor is a member of the committee,
but was called to New Orleans on
business and could not be present.
Unless the celebration is to be allowed
to go by default, it is time arrangements
for the frolic were instituted.
At the solicitation of residents of the
left bank of the river, a new post-office
hasbeen established at Darrowville, oppo
site Donaldsonville on the Mississippi. It
will be known by the name of Darrow
post-office, and Dr. A. C. Love has been
appointed Postmaster. The appoint
ment is one to be commended, and no
doubt the office will prove a decided
convenience to the people of the vicinity.
For the present mail matter will be
delivered and received at Darrow three
times a week by' the carrier on the
Donaldsonville atdd Island route.
SIxTEEN PRIzEs.-A tombola has been
arranged for at the establishment of M.
Israel & Co. which offers many chances
for receiving a handsome return for the
investment of a small sum of money.
Sixteen attractive prizes will be drawn,
including several gold and silver watches,
a fine bronze clock and other articles
equally useful and valuable. Three
hundred and fifty tickets have been
issued, at the price of $1 each, and as
they are going off rapidly, the drawing
may be expected to take place at a very
early day. The proprietors desire to
have it as soon as possible in order that
those who purchase tickets may not be
kept waiting long to learn the result of
the venture. All who desire to try their
luck should secure tickets at once.
Every man, woman and child in the
community ought to be vaccinated,
since by this means alone can we be
fully assured of exemption from an
epidemic 6f small pox. The means of
protection are so simple and easily
attained that there is no excuse for any
intelligent person failing to take advan
tage of them. We suggest to the priests
and ministers in charge of the local
churches that it would be wise to follow
the example of their New Orleans
brethren and urge upon the members of
their congregation the advisability of
being vaccinated at once. Provision
has been made by our town authorities
for the free vaccination of the poor of
Donaldsonville, hence none will be
justified in holding back on the plea of
expense. The Police Jury ought to
provide in a similar manner for the
general vaccination, of the laboring
classes and poor people under their

Congressman Darralleto conduct a com
petitive examination'for the selection of
a candidate to Wemt .iit, asseinbled at
the law office of Judgp Sims, on Thure
day and began their jack. Three appli
cants for the honor, appeared: A. I.
Lasseigne of Lafourche.parish, a cadet at
the Louisiana State Udiversity; Wmn. W.
Dixon of Ascension, also a State Univer
sity cadet, and Jalpes W. Feely of
Donaldsonville. The examination was
partly oral and partly written, and was
quite thorough in its character, occupy
ing all of Thursday afternoon and the
greater portion of the forenoon of yester
day. The gentlemen were all apt,
intelligent and well informed, and ac
quitted themselves creditably. The
decision of the committee as to the
relative standing of the candidates will
be announced Monday evening, after the
inspection and comparison of the written
portions of the examination.
PRIMARY ELECTION.-At the recent
session of the Democratic committee for
the Third Congressional District it was
decided to hold primary elections in the
parishes of the district on Saturday next,
the 11th of February, for the purpose of
choosing delegates to a Congressional
nominating convention to be held in
New Orleans on the 20th instant. There
will be no intermediate parochial con
ventions, but the Democratic voters will
elect the delegates to the Congressional
convention direct, as indicated by the
following resolutions adopted by the
Resolved, That the chairman of this
committee be and he is hereby authorized
and directed to call a Congressional con
vention for the Third Congressional Dis
trict, to meet at New Orleans on Monday,
February 20, 1882, for the purpose of
nominating or indorsing a candidate for the
Democratic part to the XLVIIIth Con
Resolved, That each ward of every parish
of the Third Congressional District shall be
entitled to elect one delegate to said Con
gressional convention. That each delegate
so elected shall be entitled, personally or
by proxy, to cast in said convention votes
equal in number to those cast by the ward
he represents for the Democratic candidate
for President at the election of November 2,
Resolved, That the chairman of this com
mitted be and he is hereby authorized and
directed to appoint or cause to be appoin
ted and notify, one person in each ward of
every pariah of the district, to call a ward
meeting by posters or publication, on Satur
day, February 11. 1882, for the purpose of
electing a delegate to represent said ward
in the Congressional convention.
Resolved, that the chairman of this com
mittee may, at his discretion, offer such
suggestion, to the persons so appointed as
he may deem wise and expedient to carry
out the above resolutions. -
We believe persons have been desig
m'ated to conduct the election in Ascen
sion as provided in' the resolutions, but
who they are, and whether the Justice
of the Peace or the Police Jury wards
are to be regarded as the basis of appor
tionment, we have not been informed.
If the Justice wards are meant, this par
ish will be entitled to ten delegates; if
Police Jury wards are taken, the number
will be eight. It is probable little inter
est will be manifested in the election and
a very light vote polled. The notice
given has been meagre, the date unusn
ally early and there is said to b1 only
one aspirant for the Congressional nom
ination-Mr. Acklen. Under the circum
stances it is not to be expected that
- there will be a large or epthusiastic
utpouring of viters.
