has just been received, and the Old Reliable
is the only store in town where these goods
can be obtained. The soap is well worth
the price for which both soap and handker

Our veteran co-worker in the typograph

gone to spendt a while with his relatives and

birthday anniversary yesterday-his sixty
sixth, we believe-andT we doubt not it
proved an occasion of much pleasure. That
lie may live to enjoy many more of the

shoves the editorial quill, down to the
aged boy who sweeps the floor.
Last Saturday about noon as Charles
Cook, youngest son of Mr. Henry Cook, ac
companied by Eddiehlutler, a colored youth,
were sailing down the river from Smoke
Bend to Donaldsonville in a skiff, the heavy
wind caused the sail to careen their boat to
such an extent that it became waterlogged
and turned completely over. The young
men fortunately succeeded in clinging to
the bottom of the skiff until help reached
them. Messrs. Tom Cook and Harry
Thatcher went out in one skiff and another
put off from Faubourg La Pipe, and the
skiffwrecked mariners were soon rescued
and their upturned vessel towed ashore.
The Melrose crevasse at the Littlejohn
place on Bayou Lafourche near Labadieville
has been closed. No effort to stop the break
had been made until this week, partly be
cause the property holders in the immediate
vicinity were not likely to suffer much
damage from it, and partly because it was
believed that it would be a tedious and ex
pensive piece of work to arrest the flow of
the waters surging through the aperture.
After the steamer Dickey tried to make a
voyage across the country, however, and
found the water too shallow for navigation,
the people of the neighborhood came to the
conclusion that the crevasse might as well
be closed. Having once formed this opin
ion, they went to work with a will and in a
very short space of time accomplished the
object of their labors. Of course the task
was rendered much easier by the fact that
the bayou has recently fallen about two
feet, but it is not probable that it would
have been a very difficult job if undertaken
immediately after the break occurred.

A MooNLIGHT Excuessox.-Wednesday
night it party of hadies and gentlemen num
be ring about thirty-five persons enjoyed a
moonlight excursion on the popular little
ferry-boat, lella Israel, going down the
Ilayou Lafourche as far as Paineourtville
and returning, a run of something more
than twenty miles. The affair was devised
by a committee of young mneni who a-te
always ready to contribute to the pleasure
and amusement of their friends, and they
are to be complimented upon the success
attained in this instance. The excursion
had been originally set for Tuesday evenintg,
and a large party gathered at the ferry
landing expecting to take the boat, but
Capt. Miller very sensibly advised a post
ponement on account of the prevalence of a
high wind. and his counsel was accepted
promptly and with good grace. The pleas
tre seekers organized themselves into a
surprise prrty and made a descent upon the
hospitable residence of Mr. and Mrs. C. L.
Mayor, in whose spacious parlors a delight
ful evening was passed. Wednesday eve
ning was much more favorable for the
exeursion, the only drawback being the
coolness of the atmosphere. The Bella
Israel left her landing place about 9 o'clock
and reached Paincourtville at 10:30. The
return trip occupied considerable more
time, of course, as the boat had to stetn a
very strong current, and it wag 1:45 .a. at
when she was again made fast at the head
of Lessard street. Capt. Miller had kindly
furnished a piano for the occasion and Misses
Comstock, Gaudet, Mayor. Allain and others
were very obliging in playing the instru
ment whenever requested. Mr. Jno. F.
Terrio was on hand with his cornet, and his
performances on that instrument were a
feature of the occasion. What with vocal
and instrumental music, dancing and merry
conversation, the moments sped pleasantly
by, and those who took no notei of fleeting
time as measured by the chronometer were
surprised to know that it was nearly 2
o'clock when they arrived at Donaldson
ville. The moon rose shortly after the boat
left town, and the effulgent rays of the love
ly orb of night bathed the surface of land
and water in a soft and mellow light that
enchanted the vision of all admirers of the
beautiful in nature, and added much to the
pleasant character of the excursion. It is
proposed to make similar trips at frequent
intervals during the coning season, and
they will afford sflenditi oppcrtauities for
enjoying fresh air and rectoatfeo after en
during the heat of long summer Bays.
Clothing, dress goods, hats, boots and
shoes, damaged a little by water and less
by fire, are offered at M. Israel & Co.'s for
prices that will "surprise the nativ s."
A SMALL BLAZE.-An ,alarm of fire star
tled some of the residents of our town half
an hour after midnight of Tuesday, caused
by a little blade in the yard of Cook's Don
aldsonville ice-house, a two story brick
buildingon Mississippi street, near Crescent
Place. The fire started in a pile of sawdust
which lies against the upper wall of the
building, and communicated to some wooden
trestles which had been placed there a few
days before. Thd flames were first discov
ered by young Prosper Landry, son of Capt.
R. P. Landry, who at once raised the cry of
fire. Running to Phanix Hall, the young
man gained access to the second,story by
climbing up one of the gallery posts, and
began ringing an alarm upon the Phenix
bell. Mr. Henry Cook's two youngest sons,
Thos. W. and Charles .Cook, were sleeping
in the upper story of .the ice-house. Aroused
by the cries of Master Laudry they turned
out in double quicklimo and without wait
ing to make their toilets, proceeded to do
successful battle with the flames, Tom, with
his usual liotivity and presence of mind. seiz
ed a bucket and ran to the " ice-hole " behind
the house, and although lie wasted the first
bucket of water by falling down and spill
ing it over himself, he soon applied other
bucketfuls to more effective purpose and
extinguished the fire. One of the Hook and
Ladder Comnpany's liabcock extinguishers
was on its way across tie public square.
and preparations were being iiade to bring
out the 'hircnix steamer when a message
arrived from the scene of the blaze and ro
ported the danger over. A heavy wind was
blowing and had the fire gained greater
headway and coteminnicateu to guy of the
adjacent wooden buildings, there is no tell
ing where it would have stopped. Some
persons were inclined to think, that the fire
was started by an incendiary, but there is
no reasonable ground upon which to base
such an opinion. Against the blank wall of
a brick ice-house is one of the last places
imaginable any person in the possession of
his senses would select for setting fire if he
desired to encompass the destruc
tion of property. 'The reasonable
theory is that some thoughtless smoker
threw the lighted stoump of a cigir
ritte or cigar into the sawdust and thts
originated the blaze. The familiar report
that coal oil had been used to accelerate the
progress of the fire was circulated. lit there
is no doubt the rumor is without foundaution
in fact. The peculiar odor emitted by the
burning pine trestles was perhaps mistaken
by somie for the smell of coal oil. We re
marked in the opening sentence of this item
that the alarm of fire startled somie
of the residents of our town. There were
many who knew nothing of the matter
until next morning, and we attribute the
circumstance principally to two causes: 1.
The small calibre of the bell upon which fire
alarms are rung, and 2. the strong wind
prevailing which tended to carry sounds in
one direction only.
DEXTER ifrSTAiLES.-Mr. M. Sihonberg,
who has for a number of years bec en
gaged in the occupations of livery stable
keeper and undertaker in Donaldsonville,
has not only built a largo new stable on
Railroad Avenue, between Mississippi and
Iberville streets. but has also regained pos
session of the spacions *tables and stock
pens in the next block which he sold last
year to the late Mr. David Kling. Mr.
Schonberg has therefore largely increased
the scope of his business and is now better
than ever before prepared to meet the de
mands of those wbo wish to hire or pur
chase horses, mules or vehicles, and those
who unfortunatelyliave occasion to procure
coffins and make arranigenents for funerals.
With a good stock of horses, buggies and
carriages, a bran new stage connecting
with the daily passenger trains, a fine
hearse and a full line of burial cases of all
styles, lie invites a comparison of his facil i
ties, goods and prices with those of any
other estailishment and proclaims his abili
ties to please all comers.

of Donaldsonville to Miss LINA M. ALLAIN of
Mr. Sawyer has resided in Donaldsonville for
a number of months, and is the agent of the
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machine Company.
During his sojourn here he has, by his courteous
and affable hearing, won the respectand esteem
of all our citizens. As he is straightforward and
upright in all his business relations, it is but
natural to suppose that he will make a kind,
indulgent and affectionate husband. We tender
the happy pair our most hearty congratulations
and wish themi a long life of connubial bliss.
LEAKE-ELLIS--At Thibodanx, Li., in St.
John's Church, Wednesday, April 25, 1843, at I
o'clock P. an., Mr. HUNTER C. LEAaE of West
Feliciana, to Miss KATIE ELLIs of Lafourche.
It is with more than ordinary pleasure that
we chronicle the consummation of this, happy
alliance. The groom, well and favorably known
to the writer, is a young gentleman of most
noble and admirable qualities; brilliant and
talented; honorable, upright and just in all his
dealings. He stands in the front ranks of
society, and as the editor of the Feliciana
Sentinel he has shown himself to be a forcible
and trenchant writer, and has, by his straight
forward, conservative expressions of opinion
justly earned and properly retains the respect
and esteem of all the members of the press of
Louisiana. Surely, with such a groom, the fair
and accomplishe'1 bride will find the journey
through the ragged paths of life a pleasant and
jiyors one, and we feel confidletishe will never
live to see the rising of the sun that will usher
in the day which will cause her to regret the
wedding of such a high-toned, renfined and
honrable gentleman as is Hunter C. Leake.
We devoutly hope
That the angels of mercy of love and of peace
Will forever watch over and guard them:
That naught will occur to mar the sweet bliss
Which God has soon fit to accord them.
That the young lives so aptly and properly joined
May never know strife or foul weather;
