As tub ofcial proqpetings of the session are shortly to be published in extenso and furnished to our readers in the form of a supplement, we deem it unnecessary forthe present to consume space with anything more than a very brief statement of the leading matteres considered andacted upon. President Jastrem.ti addressed toh as sociation in his nseal terse and forcible style, congratulating" those present upon their reassembly and urging undiminished interest in the success of the organization.

Griaine gnebre and Bead, a special committee appiirted for the par pose, submitted resolutions relative tothe death of Jlenry _J. %yaiks and Jona C. White, late members -f the Association, which were adopted. Mr. Grisamore paid a beautifil tribute to the memory of Mr. White, and Mr. Bigney spoke feelingly of Mr. Hyams and also of Prof. Edward Fon taine, a man promninent in literature and science, whoe loss should evoke an expres sion of regret from the Preses Association. Mr. Bigney responded to a request to read a poem on Louisiana that he had sub mitted in competition for the poetiealprize, and his rendition of theq beautiful produc tion evoked bearty aplause. Mr. Barrow of Weas Baton Rouge and Major Burkeof New Oriapape respectively Chief State Commisuidoser and Direotor General of the World'B Exposition, were invited to address the Association on the subject of the great work with which they: are connected, and their' remarks excited close attention, dp interest and much ap plause. On motion of Col. Stone the aid of the State press so far as represented by the Association was pledged to the advance ment of the Exposition project, and edi tors who are not meurbers were requested tosxert their inuence in the same direc tion. It was voted that the next annual meeting shall be held at Shreveport on the 4th of July, 1885, but there is to be a special session during the progress of the World's Exposition at New Orileans on such date as may be selected by the Pegdent and Ex ecutive Committee. Officers were elected for the ensuing year as fQllows: Leon Jastremski, President; Mrs. Ava H. Hildenbrand and R. 4W. Bead, Vice Presidents; L. E. Bentley, Secretary and Treasurer. It was decided that the subject of again offering prizes for literary productions should be referred to the Exeoutive Com mittee when appointed, to be reported upon at the contemplated special meeting of the Association. Thanks were tendered to Messrs. Werlein and Meynier for the free use of their hall and offce, and the Association adjourned, the members repairing to the Kuntz res taurant where an elegant dinner was ten dered them by Major Burke and the Times Democrat. The repast was most enjoyable and at'its concihsion the participant sepa rated amid expressions of cordial good will and regret, and a general determination to be present at the next special and regular meetings of the Association, We are con fident there will be a very full attendance on both those occasions and that the roll of membership will be materially enlarged by the names of mianuy Se reoruits.

Brent to the House o 'o- Representatives in 1878, Judge Pqch6 t. of the Constitutional Convention of 1879 an, ad to vote for Hon. Henry L.

Verret, colored Republican, fo Clerk and Recorder. n- Dr. Emile Hiriart. Democrat, for Coroner. ad The success of this ticket, which we an - . derstand is regarded as a foregone concli I. sion, save perhaps with reference to th to candidate first named, will insure a contin b- uance of the state of good feeling whiel ,g, has existed between the Republicans anm eo. Democrats of "sweet Iberville," thus re dounding to the welfare of the communit, ad at large and filling the local offices wit] ly men whose efficiency and worth are recog or nized by both parties. Such fusion in rwha re may be denominated "home polities,' be while involving no necessary sacrifice o ey principle on either side, tend todraw neare ed together a people whose material interest p. are identical and who ought to be closet, id united in sentiment and action that the; may better meet the assault upon their veri e: means of livelihood threatened -by th a proposed reduction or.abolition of the saga ed tariff. ei We congratulate the Iberville Repnblic ans upon their recognition of the "Ascen sg lion plan" and regret that our Democratic th friends have up to this time shown no dis al position to be equally wise and magnani Ps mons in parishes where they are in the as as cendency. This is the great obstacle to th . general adoption of the fusion policy i. the Republican parishes and districts, an, ar should it be removed the people of Louisai it ana would soon find themselves liberatec d, from their present state of political thral dom which makes them the victims of can. cus rule and the scapegoat of a party whose in principles and tendencies are not only an I tagonistioto, but utterly destructive of me z most valuable interests and industries.

On the deck of a big Mississippi steamboat stood an aged Southern planter. Indicating by a sweep of his arm the waters the boat was e passing over, he said to a passenger from the North: "When Iwas 12yearsold I killed my 1 first bear on a new plantation my father was o then cutting out of a forest that grew directly r over the waters of this bend. That was a mighty good plantation, and there was right e smart of bears there, too. But that one thou f sand acres of land went into the Mississippi years ago." It is putting no strain upon the figure to say that great forests of youthful hope, womanly beauty nd manly strength are swept in thesame wayrevery year into the great, turbid torrent of t disease and death.
