A Basr SaiAx.-We received yesterday,
with the compliments of Wm. Davis, fisher
man, a small shark of the species common
ly known as the shovel-mouth or dog shark,
which was caught by the sender, with a trot
line, in the Mississippi river near Mr. Ar
thur Cire's store, yesterday morning. The
little fsh is thirty-four inches in length
and greatly resembles the ordinary river
atfish in color and general appearance.
Thef sherman thought he had a catflsh when
he puied it to the surface of the water, but
the difficulty he experienced in getting the
creature into the skiff and killing it showed
hi risnis'h ake. He says the shark pulled
like' asle, bit a catfish lying in the skiff
hlin two and loundered about the skiff
so vi iously that he-the owner-was almost
intimidated into going overboard and leave
ing the boat in pasmession of the fAh.
KILLnD nr A WoMAN. - Last Saturday
night, between 10 and 12 o'clock, Dick
Brown, a well known young colored man
living in the seventh Justice wadr of this
parish-a wild, ~iarm scarum fellow who
ha: nsa involved in a dozen shooting
affmr and butting scrapes-made his away
into a room occupied by Delia Knox, a
young colored woman living on the Lin
wood plantation. Upon being discovered
by the ceaupant he is said to have crouched
behind the door, whereupon the woman
ran out uo the gallery, seizing a shotgun
as the way. She call upon Brown to leave
her room and receiving no response fired
upon him, wounding him in both legs. He
walked off and was discovered next morn
ing lying in the weeds two or three hun
drel yads fromwThe house, very weak from
loss ogbleod. He was carried into a neigh
boring cabin and properly cared for, but
died Tuesday evening from the effect of
his irtjues. Thme Grand Jury investigated
the matter .and refused to indict the wo
man, deeming that she was justified in
firing mhe fatal shot. It is alleged that
Brown had previously attempted to enter
the same houase at night but was discovered
before succeeding in the effort.
THE CALCO BALL.-The second annual
aliceo hal, of the Donaldsnaville Dramatic
and Social Club took place at Phoenix Hall,
Thursday night, and while the atttenaMnce
was not so large as had been anticipated,
those who were present reaped much en
joyment from the affair and it was very far
from being a failure. Some uafortunate
oversights ocamrred in sending out invita
tions-hbe list which the club generally
uses having been misaaid and the young
men of the ivitation cosmaittee trusting
to their memories alone-and to this
unfottrale fact was doubtless due the ab
sence of a number of young ladies who
would otherwise have graced the entertain
ment with 4hsir presence. The members
of the club are much chagrined by the
untoward occurrence and will take pains
to make amends for it on the first occasion
that offers. Dancing was continued until
after midnight, the music furnished by
Mrs. Gaudet and Mr. Terrio proving as
satisfactory as it always has done hereto
fore. Ice cream, sherbet and cake were
served in the lower hall, under the direction
of Mrs. C. Keating and Mrs. H. S. Bou
dreaax, while lemonade and more stalwart
refreshments of the liquid order were dis
pensed by Mr. L. T. Duffel of Mack's Ex
change. Among the guests we noticed a
number of young ladies and gentlemen
from Assumption and St. James parishes,
and also a charming debutante from New
Orle4ii ho formerly resided in our town.
These Visitors, in common with the " home
folks" present, appeared to enjoy them
selves thoroughly, much to the gratification
of the young gentlemen under whose
auspices the ball was given.
The election in Vermont Tuesday before
last resulted in the usual Republican victory,
the majority of the Republican candidate

vote was about sixteen per cent, smaller
thba that east at the preceding State elec
tion, the Republicans losing ten per cent.
and the Democrats six.

Thus passed away, atder a painfal illness of a
fortnight's duration. - one of Donaldonville's
best known and msat highly-eateemed citiaseri,
a man bearing the purest character in all the
relations of life, upright, kind charitable and
just, whose death has caused the deepest srrow
among a large madce of relatives and friends
and carried a pang of regret into almost every
household of this community. Mr. Bel went to
Europe when only eight years of age and re
masined at school there for six years. On his
rdturn home he was sent to college at Bards
town, Ky., spending a four years' term there.
For a number of years before the war he was in
the employ of his beather-in-law. Mr. Gamotis,
who kept a drug etoe this town. Marrying
in 1856 a daughter of Mr. J. B. Leche-still a
respected citizen of our community-Mr. Bel
bbu 1ht a sngar plantation in Assumption par
ish, in 1859 or'60, and placed it under the man
agement of his fther-n-S w. He was fond of
tavelin. and nade e sight trip to Europe, via
itiaglt pýer of that continent.. He was in
New OrlestIe when thewar broke out, andupon
the arrival of the Federals in 1862 he went to
Bt. James Island, South Carolina, where he re
mained until peace was declared. In 18.5 he
established himself in Donaldsonville as a
druggist. and here remained until his death.
He was encceeded in business by his estimable
brother-in-law, Mr. J. J. Leche. in 1882, but re
mained in the store as before and assisted in
conducting the large trade which his ener.
industry and pulri itty had builded up. The
funeral took place Wedaesday morning, the re
mains of the lamepted gentleman being taken
to Plattenville Si the-ei ghboriug parish of
Assumption, and interred in the Cttholic oem
etety at that place. May his soul rest in peace
and the sorrowing widow be comforted by the
conviction that "he is not lost, but gone be
fore." to a brighter and happier sphere.
OB.Y-At the residence of his son, in the par
ish of Ascension. on Tuesday, Sept. 9, 1884, at
7 o'oelock. u., Joa B.: Oa', a native of St.
Jamas, aged 26 years and 8 monthM.
The death of this kindly old gentleman is re
gretted by all who knew him and we join in the
general feeling of sorrow which; prevails by
reason of the sad event. The funeral occurred
Wednesday evening, at the Catholic cemetery
and was largely attended by the relatives and
friends of the deceased.
