Next was a foot race of 100 yards to decide the running capacities of Mr. Keating and Mr. Allen, over- seers of the Danjean and Duggan plantations, respectively. Mr. Keating darted ahead at the word, and though hard pressed, managed to hold his own, and u toed the mark" about two feet in advance of his competitor. Several minor races then took place, and the crowd lounged into Chapsky's aud Hunzelmau's stores to ''ticker" and indulge in in "horse talk."

The store of Mr. Chapsky. corner of Front and Lincoln streets, and painted red, has re ceived the popular name of tbe "Red Store ot Hahnville. For abundance of stock, size ot store and excellence of arrangement it is uu - excelled along tbe coast.

He sell» cheap, givrs full weight and measure aud is attentive to his business, and polite to his customers. Mr. Adam Schnieder, in this village, is a most excellent carpenter and cistern maker, furniture repairer and varnisher. >Ve can recommend nim as a man who undrestamU his business and who will faithfully carry out his contracta. Those wishing anything done in the black smith or carriage making line ol business w ill do well to cull on Mr. Fox, our village blacksmith. Ho Is no common mechanic, and has already astonished the people ot our parish with the elegance aud finish ot his work, lie makes and repairs wagons and buggies, slioea horses, and does all kinds ot iron work.

Mr. Aichel does a genera » business in the tin, copper and sheet iron lute, and always gives satisfaction to planters ana others needing his services or goods. , We have often wondered why it is that men 'who smoke a good deal do nut buy a box of cigars at a time, considering that iu this man ner they could purchase cigars at four or five cents each which retail at the shops and stores at ten and fifteen cental This would be a great saving every year. And we have also wondered wbv the »ton s along our river coast bought their cigars at Now Orleans, when the same kind of cigars might lie manufactured at reasonable prices iu our midst! But we will no longer have cause to notice those strange things. Mr. Muuade has removed his eigar manufactory from St. John parish to Huhu ville, and now keeps bis men constantly em ployed in making good cigars for thejpeople of this parish and uio-e distant places.
