On the 9th of February Col. Isaac W. Patton, a widely known and very prominent citizen of New Orleans died. He was one of the most popular men in New Orleans, and his death is deeply regretted in that city and throughout the State. The Times-Democrat, of the 10th inst., says "Col. Patton was one of the kindest and most generous of men. He has done New Orleans and Louisiana many services which they can never forget. He was a native of Fredericksburg, Va., and a son of Hon. John M. Patton, a distinguished member of Congress and Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. He had entered upon his sixty-third year."

We acknowledge the receipt of a piece of music, composed by Mlle. Alix Judice, of Lafayette, entitled A Toi Ma Pensee', a waltz, dedicated to her mother, published by Philip Werlein, New Orleans. Those who understand music say that it is a beautiful production, and has been received in musical circles with high appreciation. We have ever recognized Miss Alix's superior merit as a musical performer, but now we wish to do her deserved honor, and say that Lafayette is proud of her talent.
