from St. James and Ascension that each
parish should proceed to elect its eight del

Darrowville on the 10th of March, the day
the senatorial nominating convention is to
assemble, and then and there agree upon a
time and place to assemble in judicial con
Vention and name the candidates for Dist
trict Judge and District Attorney. This
plan will obviate any difficulty that might
btherwiSie arise from the claimed exis
tence of two judicial comittees in the dis
trict, Thiere'is no expectation of a contest
from either parish in the matter of accredi
ting delegates to the judicial convention,
and this body, whose authority will be un
guestioned, will proceed to the formation
of a district committee to succeed both those
now claiming existence.

A detachment of the Cofield Guards fired
a national salute of twenty-one guns on the
public square at noon yesterday, in honor
of the anniversary of the birth of Washing
ton. The detachment was commanded by
Lieut. R. MoCulloh and was composed as
follows: No. 1. F. P. Schuler; 2. Charles
Cook; 3. A. J. Gingry; 4. Thos. W. Cook; 5.
Laurent Rodeillat; 6. Henry Schaff; 7. John
Ramirez. The piece was handled in excel
lent style, and but for the inferior quality
of some of the friction primers the firing
would have been as rapid and negular as
almost any detachment of veterans could
have made it.
Prof. D. M: Brewer came up from New

Htalt in accordance with his announcement
of the previous Saturday, but it rained so
heavily just before night that the streets were
flooded and the sidewalks overflowed in
many places, hence the Professor con
cluded to postpone his second appearance
before the Donaldsonville public until
some future time. le expects to fix a date
in March, and we trrst that, when the ap
pointed evening arrives, the weather will
be propitious and the hall crowded.
NoT A HOMICIDE.-It has .been ascer
tained that Tony Hollins, the colored man
who surrendered to Sneriff Jonies last week
ender the impression that he had killed Joe
Nelson, in St. James parish, is innocent of
the supposed homicide, as Nelson is alive
and well and was not even struck by the
bullet from Hollins' revolver. As we stated
last week, the two men had a difficulty in
front of the Shepherd plantation, on the
11th inst." Nelson opened fire on Hollins,
who fired one shot in return, the ball strik- 1
ing the horse upon which Nelson was rid
ing. Hollins left the scene without learn
ing the effect of his shot, and hearing af
terwards the report of Nelson's death
which was published by the Creole Fireside,
he came to Donaldsonville and gave him
ZE$EA SEONs.-This skillful ventriloquist
and prestidigitator gave enjoyable enter
tainments at Phoenix Hall Thursday and
Friday evenings to large audiences, and all
who attended were highly pleased. In
tricks of legerdemain Prof. Semon com
pares favorably with any of the great art
ists in that line, while as a ventriloquist he
is excelled by few. The distribution of 100
presents at each performance adds greatly
to the interest of his entertainments, and
the useful, attractive and valuable charac
ter of the gifts was a genuine surprise to
all. Many of the ticket holders secured
prizes worth several times the price of ad
mission. There will be a matinee at 2
o'clock this afternoon for ladies and chil
dren, and another performance this even
ing. If the weather is good we shall expect
to see full houses. Admission, 50 cents;
children, 35 cents.
A LIVELY RAcE.--The race between Mr.
Martin Ourso's bay mare Nelly and Mr.
D. W. Scott's grey mare Lily, which was
appointed for last Sunday but postponed
on account of bad weather, came off Wed
nesday afternoon, in front of Teller's Riv
erside plantation, two miles and a half be
low Donaldsonville. The distance was
three hundred yards and the stake $300 a
side, Messrs. Foley and Pansan acting as
starters and MXessrs. Colomb and Rodrigue
as judges. After several false starts the
ponies got away well together, the bay se
curing a slight lead and maintaining her
advantage to the finish, crossing the line
with a foot and a half of daylight showing
between her and the grey. There was a
large crowd present and much excitement.
Numerous bets had been made on the re
sult and considerable inoney changed
hands. There is talk of another trial of
speed between the two animals, and the
backers of the grey are confident that their
favorite will redeem herself should a sec
ond opportunity be given her.

cintheT.aoyson, accompanied by his gifted
wife and their brigb. little son, arrived
here Monday evening, according to ap
pointment, and remained until Thursday
afternoon, when they took their departure
on the steamer Natchez. During their so
journ they stopped at the Lfee Hotel, where
they were visited by many of our leading
citizens, upon all of whom the distinguished
pulpit orator and his wife made a most
favorable impression. Pure Hyacinthe
lectured at' Phoenix Hall Tuesday and
Wednesday evening to large, intelligent and
appreciative audiences, and we believe
that all who heard him were convinced that
his world-wide reputation for eloquence
and logic is fully deserved. We present
the following brief synopsis of the argu
ments advanced in the two lectures, our
circumscribed space not permitting a
In entering a church the first thing which
attracts attention is the baptismal font,
where we are baptized and become Chris
tians, make our professions of faith and
declare our belief in the holy Catholic and
Apostolic Church. It is not necessary, in
order to be a Christian, that a firm belief
should exist in all that is taught by the
Apostolic and Roman Catholic Church, the
word "Roman" not occurring in the bap
tismal service, which is Apostolic. The
word' "and Roman"-were added by the
Pope- the authority for which they as
sume.l without right, as they have assumed
through many ages the prerogatives of
"masters of the world," in affairs spiritual
and temporal. Had they contented them
selves with matters properly within their
sphere-the expounding of doctrines of the
"simple religion"-they would always have
commanded the respect and obedience of
the faithful, but in their pride they have
ceased to say "the Church alone is infalli
ble in that which she teaches," and now cry
aloud, "I, the Pope, am alone infallible,
and you must believe all I say and obey
me, under penalty of excommunication."
This the enlightenment: and education of
the people of the nineteenth century will
not allow. This it is that is driving the
people of France, the intellect of Paris into
atheism and deism, a disbelief in God and
The pulpit, from which the truths of re
ligion should alone be explained, is occu
pied by too many men who, forgetting
their holy office of priest and the precepts
of priesthood, seem to have only the ideas
of making money and satisfying their own
desires or passions. The pulpit should be
purged, and to accomplish this independ
once should be given to priests and bishops
by allowinglthe laity to select priests for
ordination and the laity and priests to
gether to choose bishops. The people
would not then be held, as they now are, in
serfitude by the priests, nor the priests
by the bishops, nor the bishops by
their superiors. The privilege of marriage
should be allowed the clergy, and the lec
turer cited many instances where it had
been permitted, going as far back as the
time of St. Peter.
Forced confession should be atolisef.
Through its influence on women, children
and those deficient in intelligence or en
lightenment, the clergy have gained much
of theit baneful power. The paterfamilias
should be the priest and first master of the
household; his will should be the will of the
family, his orders sacred, and his interpre
tation of religious points the guiding rule
of his wife and children, who, following
precepts of a Christian husband and fat
would be virtuous and consequently happy.
The wife should confess to the husband and
the husband to the wife; the child to the
father and mother, that they be united; each
to his neighbor should acknowledge his
fault and contritely repair the hurt done;
confess each to himself-to his conscience,
which is judge, fully avowing wrong with
out attempt at excuse, and then to God,
asking for pardon. Should you wish it,
having sinned or being in doubt, seek out
your priest, he who is the mediator between
yourself and our heavenly Father. Would
you hesitate if the priest were married, and
say, with old women, that your confession
would not be kept secret? The priest in
the state of matrimony as under no more
temptation than if a celibate. His exhor
tations are then truly those of a father.
Read, and you will find that in the Greek
Church at Rome married and single priests
exercise their functions at the same altar
and have the same privileges. Can it be
said that a lawyer, notary or doctor would
be more secret than a priest? Is not their
state less sanctified.
Priests would be more sincere and fer
vent if the mass were celebrated in the na
tional language, instead of Latin, which
the people do not understand.
Were the Church at Rome reduced to
Apostolic simplicity its altars would be the
palladium where Christians would unite to
receive the "bread and wine" consecrated
by worthy priests, and peace, good will to
ward man would be established forever.
The only reference made by the lecturer
to the difficulty among the Catholics of this
parish was the remark that the church was
closed and that it seemed to be a question
of land, the people being told, in effect,
"Give us the land and we stay; take the
I ad from us, we go."
BASE BALL.-Theeboys who are fond of
base ball had fine games on the Nolan
green Sunday before last and last'Sunday.
In the first gamelthe nines were headed by
Messrs. Wutke and Lumiet and the score
was as follows:
Wutke nine..............1 1 2 1 0 6 x-11
Lumietnine.........2 4 0 0 1 1 0- 8
Last Sunday a bout of seven innings took
place between nines chosen by Masters
Burke and Castaigne; resulting in a tie
score of six to six, as follows:
Burke nine ..........0 1 1 1 3 0 0--6
('astaigne nine............3 0 0 0 1 2 0-6
A young man who signs himself manager
of the Belmont club of New Orleans has
written to a friend in this parish, asking
the latter to ascertain what inducements
the Nolans will offer the Belmonts to come
to Donaldsonville and play a match. The
Nolauns will reorganize early in March and
will then be prepared to respond to the in
quiry of the Belmonts. With a little effort
on the part of the local players and the co
Operation of our business men, the coming
base ball season can be made a very lively
one. We shall expect the Caddo club to re
deem its promise to visit Donaldsonville,
but the Nolans must get themselves in first
rate trim before they can hope to compete
successfully with the Shreveport team.
The Cincinnati club will play a picked
nine at the New Orleans park to-morrow
evening, and will remain in the city until
after Mardi Gras week. The picked nine
to play to-morrow will include Gore, Will
iamson, Nava, Wise and other profes
sionals spending the winter in the city.
FounTr ov MAACH ExcustoN--The com
mittee of Ascension Hook and Ladder Com
pany appointed to make arrangements for
an excursion to New Orleans on the occa
sion of the approaching annual celebration
of the Fire Department of that city, has
decided that the trip shall be made by rail.
Tickets will be sold for the excursion at
$2 60 each-that is, one fare for the .round
trip-good for use from the 3rd to and ih
cluding the 7th of March. Quite a large
delegation of the Hooks is expected to
make the trip in response to the invitation
of Jefferson 22, and Phoenix will also send
a good number of representatives to turn
out in the parade as guests of Irad Ferry
12. It is not yet decided whether the In
dependent Band will accompany the excur
sionists. All purchasers of tickets at the
Donaldsonville depot on the 3rd of March
will be given the advantage of the excur
sion rate, hence this will offer a favorable
opportunity for a cheap trip to any one
having occasion to visit the city on busimess
about tlhat time.
-MivnzDa AT MoUNT HoiPas.--An atro
cious deed was committed iin the Mdunt
Honmas plantation, in the: sixth Police
Jury ward of this parish: last Sunday after
noon, the particulars of which are as fol
lows: . Benjamin Gersdorf, aGerian about
35 years of age, employed as a section boes'
on the Mississippi Valley railroad,· who had
been drinking quite freely and was con
siderably under the influence of liquor, was
being taken by a couple of the colored sec
tion hands towards the boarding car lo
cated on the Mount Houmas place, when
they were overtaken on the roaa leading
through the quarters by Sampson Rowland,
a young colored man living on the planta
tion. Rowland and Gersdorf became in
volved in an altercation, and the former
ran to his cabin and armed himself with a
revolver. Returning at once, he met Gers
dorf and his companions just as they had
entered the quarters, at a point opposite
the home of William Riley, and renewed
the dispute. Scarcely halffa dozen words
had been exchanged when Rowland stepped
back a pace or two, drew his revolver and
fired at Gersdorf, the bullet entering the
latter's head just above the right eye and
finding an exit above the right ear. The
wounded man broke away from the two
men who were supporting him, jumped
about three feet into the air and fell to the
ground insensible. He was placed on
board the passenger train Monday morn
ing and conveyed to New Orleans, where
lie was taken to the Charity Hospital. At
last accounts portions of the .brain were
oozing through the bullet holes in his head,
and it was deemed inevitable that death
would ensue. Rowland made his escape
immediately after the shooting and has not
been seen since. He is about 20 years of
age, was married last year, and a son of
Bennett Rowland, one of the most respected
colored men on Mount Houmas.
From Thursday's Picayune we learn that
Gersdorf died at 10 o'clock Wednesday
morning from the effect of his wound.
JuaT OPENED.-Mr. John Greenwood, a
young gentleman whose father is one of
the best known and most successful mer
chants of St. Mary parish, has come to our
town with the intention of locating here
permanently and establishing himself in
the same business in which his father is en
gaged. Having secured the desirable lo
cation on Mississippi street, opposite the
old Gondran stand, and recently occupied
by Mr. Charles Maurin, Mr. Greenwood is
having the place neatly fitted up and sup
plied with an entirely fresh and new stock
of staple and fancy groceries, provisions,
crockery, hardware and general merchan
dise, which he proposes to retail to the pub
lic at prices that will compete with those
of any other dealer. Mr: Greenwood ap

DIxsTBCT CouaT.-Sessions of the Dis
trict Court were held on Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday at which judgment was
rendered for plaintiff in the case of Lisa
Sompayrao, widow Simon Brand, vs. An
toine Savastano, and judgments by default
were entered up against defenilants in the
following suite: Fergus Gardere et als vs.
P. A. Jones, Sheriff. and J. B. Quimby;
Louis Wild vs. Gervais Hebert; W. Roberts
vs. E. Baptiste; Mrs. Eliska Richard vs. J.
O. LeBlanc. At the conclusion of Wednes
day's session court was adjourned until
yesterday, the 22d inst,, which was a legal
holiday. We believe the effect of such an
adjournment is to cause the term to lapse,
in which case there will be no more court
until the special jury term opens March 17.
Will have something nmportant to say next week.
