G. Bertrand, at danu Duson, some months ago, and the which, upon the first trial, at the term of court before this, resulted cou in a disagreement of the jury, was hon brought up last Monday, and after a trial lasting two days and the best his part of a night, resulted in a verdict enj of manslaughter, with a recommen- enj dation of mercy attached. tha The particulars of the case are so cha well known to the readers of The Gazette that it would be a waste of col time to again go over the details. cor The case had attracted much.at tention, in view of the"alleged des- acw perate reputation of the accused, coupled to the proclaimed state ment that on account of large A family connections, it would be, as mic it had been in the past, well nigh tive impossible for the State to secure a law conviction, when one of the For- the man's are concerned. The district wh; attorney laid particular stress upon linj this point, and made a forcible ar- p gument of his side of the case. re The following is the jury: Mar- the tial Billaud, foreman; Charles Bil- chi laud, Louis Deleglise, Henry Es- e swein, Albert Labbe, Hazard Ber- the nard, I. N. Satterfield, Armance ,a Guilbeau, G. Abbadie, Auguste fac Labbe, T. Estilette, Wm. Dural c (colored.) ma It appears that this young man ou Bas been up before the authorities th: many times, for a number of offenses ate and among them were two accusa- we tions of murder. Upon trial of the first he was acquitted. m< All this trouble can be traced to M° the reprehensible habit of carrying he weapons. Had Willie Forman and! Columbus Spell left their pistols at be home it is probable that J. G. Ber- m trand would be living to-day, and pe *Columbus Spell would have been saved the suffering caused by the se two wounds he received, and Willie Forman, instead of now being on se the threshhold of "the penitentiary where a long stay may await him, would be in the bosom of his fami li,. a solace and joy, and spare them the consequent disgrace entailed by , an act, that would not have been committed if that pistol had been , left at home. AN ASSURRED FACT. It may be remembered that two weeks since The Gazette called at- d tintion to the formation of The a' Teche Railroad and Sugar compa- h ny and that it was the fixed purpose a of the gentlemen at its head to C build, at an" early day, a railroad from Huron plantation, on Bayou i T Ieche, to Carencro. That the , ~t-oen any mean to carry out their a -·~5 tntions The Gazette has all along jeiehved, and we are happy to note that it is coming. : Through the courtesy of that pub ,j:> -'1spirited citizen, Mr. Romain ---tg"- , we have in our possession abater. written to that gentleman . -5 A.

Let them dow re all proper encouragement to suit, capital that is knocking at their one ,or, and in a few years they will lier ap such posperity, as they never mee eamed of. the - mat Last Sunday the Times-Democrat said iblished a short biography of Gen- cler al Alexander Declouet which J, is eagerly read by the many friends and this lamented chivalric gentle- gral an, whose thoughts, time and quit eans were ever so unselfishly de- noti )ted to his people. In a career con wvering part of a period that was cen aught with so many threatening ease angers to our constitutional liberty ber te General's pen and voice were mo: ter ready to defend uphold and en- was ourage them. His life was full of usis onors; not the least speck ever kn rsted on the bright escutcheon of we, is long life. The writer who a s. njoyed the privilege of hiswa cquaintanceship, can truthfully say pla hat he was a kind, generous and act haritable man. The necessarily ma hort biography, limited to the wo olumns of a newspaper, while in- the omplete, furnishes an example of -. rhat unselfish and high aims can tccomplish. no( Society vs.Occupation. yol A friend remarked the other day, that tre 'the occupation of the man or woman deter- sha nined their position in the world, irrespec- bo ive of their personal merit or intelligence." This is unfortunately only too true. The aws of society are iron-clad and dominate inm he world with a ruthless disregard of even me the slightest demands of equity. No matter fin what may be the personal character or ster ling worth of the man; the purity or righ teousnese of the woman, and the honesty of we purpose and virtue of the child. Society ly relegates them to the background and debars be them from the exercise of what belongs to th them, should either the man, woman or child- pursue an occupation that the tenets of ca every locality's "four hundred" pronounce wt in any degree menial. an This is not right. It is a prostitution of the first intention of God when he created m; man, alik: in body and mind. The simple ne fact that you or I have been educated to a TI profession, or by some providential move of fortune are elevated above the struggling masses, in-so-far as money is concerned, is not sufficient to warrant an assumption on our part that we are in any degree better T than our neighbor, who possessing all the attributes of a perfect man or woman, has not been able to rise above the crust of the p( world and soar in the empyrean heights of w Society's atmosphere. re The position of the worker is rendered more difficult by the sneers or unkind re marks of they in the upper walks of life. Ji Money means position, and were the veriest fc beggar that ever asked alms from the pas- ec ser by, by any untoward or unlooked for stroke of fortune, be endowed with a supera bundance of worldly goods,he would find as 3 many sycophants at his heels as ever fol- f, lowed the footsteps of his brothers in pros- i, perity. Virtue, honesty, integrity, manliness, and aI purity of mind and soul, are all made sub servient to the insatlate M1oloch of human N greed, and the honest man toiling for daily sustenance, is like a wave on the heaving sea of life, tossed hither and thither by every wind, no identity or recogniton save o when demanded by force of circumstance. I If a girl tired of witnessing the daily grind a of her parent's houshold and rising above the teachings of her society, which admon- c ishes the keeping up of appearances even if the mother stays up at night and doe5 her own washing, and accepts a position in de partment of trade she at once loses caste. It a man discard the white collar and clad s in overalls, rolls cotton or firesan engine and quits sponging on the world, society looks askance and cuts him dead. One of these days the world will recognize the fact that I beneath the grime of honest toil, the heart f heats and the brain works in as great a, frame and with as pure an intention as ever I dominated the actions of a set of curled and scented darlings, who foolishjy imagine they I are too good to breathe the same air with honest industry. All other things alike, why should the occupation determine the station?--lorgan City Advocate. The foregoing brings to mind an incident that happened during the writer's steamboat days: A widow and her young daughter took pas sage at Pattersonville with the in tention of boarding a steamboat at New Orleans for St. L.ouis. She was a poor and respecta6le woman, whom a cruel fate had robbed of some small means she once pos sessed. Could she but reach St. Louis, she was assured of a home on a farsn not far from the city, but w.sile those to whtom she was going could give her a home they were not abl.e t. provide the means to the expenses of passige. tscrtainq 4that: after -payyla Al~in as.nge osthe first. b6at be is a asng not have' enough money;o not the. n the next,: and while the clerk did aot a sinking of the best way to get on" out of their sad plight, the think he in and daughter secured a quiet tiatslf on the boiler deck, and were teacher fling their hard lot; their who ima Led tears flowed freely, and deicienc presented a picture of the ut- cause he dejection and misery.

Buncoed. genc Last Monday on the arrival of the after- In b on train, Marshal Bradley noticed a white fewe ung man, a stranger, seemingly in dis- men tss, talking with S. M. Smith one of the arks that have been infesting the neigh- ing rhood of the depot. As soon as Smith all w the marshal he took shelter. Upon be- As g questioned by the marshal the young us k an stated that Smith had approch him, and tding out that'he was out of work, offer red to troduce him to a doctor, across the way, who ould give him work. The offer was eagcr accepted, but the doctorid;d not happen to nevi Spresent. By the slick methods known to lose gentry, he was inveigled in a game of tha .rds, and, of course, lost his money. Smith spc as arrested, brought before the authorities the ad ordered to leave, and he did. The tha arshal says that he intends to break up this pr efarious business if it takes all summer and sot he Gazette believes he will. prI Judge Felix Voorhies. fo The Gazette was pleased to receive in uesday a ca.l from its friend, Felix Voor- sol ies, Judge of the 2ast Judicial District corn, thi osed of the parishes of St. Martin and Iberia- fru rho was on a short visit here to friends and tic elatives. Since his encumbency of the position udge Voorhies has demonstrated his ability pa or quick and thorough work. When he as- Fu ended the bench about a year ago he sel ound an encumbered docket with between o50 to 400 cases, criminal and civil, but that act did not seen to give him much concern, ve nasmuch as he began with a vim that has W ccomplished so much. th To-day there are no cases pending in St. be dartin, and in Ibcria, but a few, and these vill be disposed of at the next term of court. As an illustration of the expiditiousness P~ f his work we have only to state that at the Ti ast term of court in Iberia, he decided 43 Y ases and disposed of 75. A creditable re- or :ord and one which any officer w&uild be proud of. Judge Voorhies in also a literateur, whose writings have received ,flattering mnention by gt tome of the literary men of Paris, and also ol by the Athence Louisianais. The judge B has received, on several occasions, offers to publish his writings but has invariably re- Si fused. The Gazette trusts that the gentle man will reconsider his refusal, because it has had the good fortune to enjoy the peru sal of many of them, and it believes they p would prove interesting and enjoyable to the le general public. There is not a town more advan- " tageously situated than Lafayette :; for manufacturing enterprises. The obstacle is want of knowledge of the g act, and were it known abroad, we a have not the least doubt that the money, brains and brawn that is so essential would come to us. The , principal step is to reach the peo- h ple we need, and how best to do - this is the problem confronting us, C and it should and can be solved, but it will necessitate a small expen diture of money. The less reasoning power and the fewer ideas a man has the more ar- I bitrary and egotistical he is. 'ilOs 3Psrent. aer A tile learnina. e geus ttls ; dripk deep, or toauc, e. etherial spring."
