Pri 'reasonable I Mass Meeting at Cut Off. A call has been issnud by the fol lowing named citizens of lower La fourch'", viz: Messrs. J. T. B:.deaux, Louis Foret, S. verio F,,ret, Domn.iic IIarang, K ie Ducos, A. Pierce, Fran cois Derambe, Julien Lefort, Eugene bleunier, F. P. Parrs and Dr. P. H. Tetreau, for a mass meeting to be held at the Cut Off, on Bnday, De camber Srth, at 2 o'lock p. m., to consider the question of the damming and locking of Bayou Lafourche, and to protest against the action taken by the Napoleonvllle meeting of Decem ber 13th. The editor of the S rNTINZL has come into contact with many repre- i sentative citizens of lower leafourche, since the agitation relative to the damming of the Bayou lasfourche, and from them has learned that the pieople of Lafourche are strongly in favor of the project of damming the bayou. In fact they look upon this proposed plan as the only salvation from overflow for their section. It goes without saying that Sun day's mass meeting will be largely attended by men deeply and earnest ly interested in the cause, and strong ly favoring the damming of the Bayou. Daigle. Mirs.
