It Rains.
Tuesday and Wednesday we had more rain
than we bargained for or wanted. Pleating
operations were checked up a little.

The concert for the beneft of the Franklin
Reading Room comes off at Erina' Hall Mon
day, April 5th,at seven o'Blook. We hope
the weather wili be pleasant, and the crow d
large.
The Steamer J. D. B3i.e.
We learn that the steamer J. D. Hind., on
passage from Salt Island to the Bay, in the
storm last Wednesday, threw overboard part
of her cargo of salt sad thirty hogsheads of
sugar.
Brick Makilg.
Mr. Grundy is preparing to pat up a large
brick kiln on the west bank of the Teche,
a mile above Franklin. He will in due time
have plenty of bricks for sale at the market
price.
Warming Up.
The ground has been warming ap lately,
and the gardrm plato are p!fiag ahead
vigor~nmsl$ Feas, seqmebeu, Ihs potatoes,
meloes, encumbers, tomatoes, beans, cabba
ges, corn and divers other grdem productions
are now doing admirably in thi parish, o
the 23d of March,
Smiling.
After the storm had spent its fury last
Wednesday, and had stopped to eemider
awhile, it broke out again after sadewn as
though " the d-l had busiaem aon lin hand."
But on Thursday the sun came out with
smiles and warmth that would bave answered
for the month of May. The day was simply
delightful.
The Amna 3.
The United States Mail Boat Ana E., will
soon be hauled up to the ship yard for repairs.
She has been bruising over the snag., old
wrecks and obstructions in the Teche till she
needs prescriptions and remedies which are
only furnished by ship eapsuees. The A. Y.
T. Company would save several thousand
dollars yearly in the repairs of their stemera
if the obstructions in the Teche were re
moved.
Ueed Came.
The reports we get fom the plantations on
the Mississippi above and below New Orleans,
from the Lafourche amdTeneboane, and from
all of the Attakapes parishes and Red river,
satisfy us that the sugar parishes of the State
have as much sound seed came as they have
labor, aln that the planters will generally
get their seed in the ground in season to save
it and secure a pretty good stand.
rlams von. -
The high price of sugar ad cotton will
doubtless cause many planters to loose might
of the importance of a good supply of corn.
The old and exploded theory will again come
up that it is more prodtable to cultivate cane
alone, and buy corn. Planters aheuld remem
her that oar most proapeores planters were
always famous for fall corn cibs sad fat
mules, and planter's mules sal horses seldom
get fat on Wester: eeln.

Mrre About the sterm
Mr. Wm. Hudson writes us from Jeaner
ette: " Mr. A. Grevemberg's large stable and
cane shed down. Mrs. E. Kastuer's store,
out houses, and most of her stock of goods
destroyed, buildings scattered, the family
miraculously escaping, not dangerously hurt.
Cabins at he Delahoussaye place down and
no one hurt. Between Grevemberg's and
Uruin Provost's, the wind tore every thing to
pieces in the width of three arpents. Live
oaks, pecan-trees tortwisted, and uprooted.
But little damage to the villiage. The hail
imjured the fruit and gardens. Several sugar
houses down in the prairie."
A *.s* a.mee.
We are pained to be compelled to announce
the demise of one of our most useful and
highly esteemed citizens, Mr. Hiram Ander
son, familiarly called, by his numerous
friends, " Uncle Hiram." He was an active
blend of all good causes, a friend to the par
ish, the people, the church, and to the human
race. He was kind to the poor and needy,
ead labored hard to relieve suffering, and to
promote the best interests of his race. In
his death the Methodist Episcopal Church of
this place has lost a substantial, working
friend, the town and parish a most useful
citizen, and his family a most excellent father
and husband. We mingle our griefs with
those of the family, and of the community
who bitterly regret his sudden departure to
the land of spirits.
Preperty 5.14.
The house and lot at the lower line of
Franklin, on the Teche, lately belonging toI
Judge Baker, has been sold to Mr. Ayers, a
wealthy iron merchant of Chicago, at five
thousand and five hundred dollars.
The Mows plantation, situated adjoining
and above the Bedell plantation, two miles
from this place, containing over six hundred
arpente, fifty acres of cane, small sugar house,
plain dwelling house, etc., was lately pur
chased by Mr. Lyon, partner of Mr. Cleve
land, at sixteen thousand dollars, one half
cash.
The plantation belonging to Henry Gibbon
Esq., at Gibbon% Point, on Berwick's Bay,
was lately purchased by Mr. Lyon, at t wenty
two thousand dollars.
The plantation belonging to the widow of
Wm. Pumphrey, deceased, situated on the
eastsid e of the Teche, below Centreville, was
lately purdhased by Messrs. Brice & Butler,
at fifteen thousand.
Thpresidence and thirty arpents of land,
improvements etc., belonging to Wm. F.
Haifeigh, Esq., was lately purchased at pub
lie sale. Purchaser J. Mallon.
The Ovesrnor's Party.
Last Saturday a party of twenty or thirty
repentant and unrepentant rebels, and origi
nal union men, accompanied Governor War
moth up the Teche and to the Salt Mines of
Avery's Island, where Judge Avery gave
them a splendid dinner and a hospitable re
ception. They had a jolly time of it, and
were delighted with the Teche country, the
Island, the people, etc. Gentlemen always
give St. Mary a good name.
We notice that the Crescent report of the
excursion party, remarks that the Governor,
In passing our castle, stated that we were
from Maine, and that we said that he, Gov.
Warmoth ought to be hung. That thirty-one
years ago we resided in Maine, and were born
there, we do not deny. But whatever we
might have thought, we do not remember
that we ever stated in the Banner that War
moth ought to be hung. On the contrary, at
the time that we exposed the sins of Warmoth
and his party the most glaring, we openly
opposed violence and bloodshed, 1hanging and
Lynch law. We never said or did anything
in regard to Warmoth and his party that we
now think was either untrue or uijust.
A jolly gentleman from Chicago, one of the
exeursion party, proposed to run the boat
ashore above Franklin, and take Warmoth to
the woods and initiate him into the myste
rious order of Ku Kl'axes; bat the Governor
declined the honor, doubtless on account of
his being at the head of another secret mili
tary organisation in this State, the Loyal
Leagues or the G. A. 's.
Upon the whole, the party that acconvpa
aied Warmoth, returned to New Orleans
highly pleased, and all of them, including the
Governor, will be prepared to say better
thig of this country and people than we
fnd in the report of the Legislature on crime
In Louisihesa.

THE INCLEMENT SEASON,
AND ITS EFFECTS ON THE WEAK AND FEEBLE.
The drafts which searching cold makes upon the vital
powers of the debilitated and delicate are not less severe
than the drain upon their strength caused by excessive
heat. The vast desparity between the temperature of
over-heated rooms and offices, at this season, and the
frigidity of the outer air, is a fruitful source of sickness.
To fortify the body agalst the evil consequences of the
sudden alterations of heat and cold referred to, the vital
organization should be strengthened and endowed with
extra resistant power by the use of a wholesome tnvigor.

accelerated by its tonic operation, the liver regulated by
Its antibilions properties, and the waste matter of the
system carried off punctually by its mild aperlent action,
the whole organization will necessarily be in the beat
possible condition to meet the shooks of winter and the
sudden changes of temperature. The weak and sensa
