Covington has just had another se
busy week. Cotton, miolsa, rice,
tar, turkeysLchicksns, eggs, ete., me
are ,rolling in rapidly. and wild E
game is plentiful Buastag is good w
and getting better. pI
Considerable curiosity has been of
afloat during the past two weeks to
know who was going to occupy the
new store building which Mr.
Cahier has been fitting up so nicely, 4
on Boston street, near the corner of
Columbia. This gentleman called
on s yesterday and informed s b
that he intended to open a store
them blaml, as soon as he eaa get
everything in readinees. He pro
poses to have a complete stock of
everything pertaining to the gro
esry business, and expects to be
ready ia a Saw days to receive a
- the favers of our eitizsns. We wish t
him saees. .
Camwn.-Mr. J. IL Allison, living <
about eight miles from Covington, a
presented us, this week, with the c
finest stock of sugar Dean we have I
seen this a ,on. It had twenty- I
four joints, averaging five and one- 1
h, lsebs in cwar lmrianee, and a
- s eight poqads-just one'
to every thaws jists. Mr. a
Aflison brought in several more, and a

acidg parish, if our far- I
Muers will apply themselves in that'
In Cowmmax.-Owing to low
water, the steamer New Camelia was

striig at the Old eIeding about
nine ou**ok. Although it was late
when the Mal arrived, oar post
mistress~ Mrs. Damrs, who was
about to retire for the night, di
fabated it, for .e eoavenisece of
those whose eorrespendemes might
repite an esimediate answer. We

We call the attention of our read- t
ore to the advertisement of Mr. 0.
E. Girardey, in another column. It
willbe seen that the aleo~f the

ecribed, will take place on the 30th

Daownse.-Mr. Frank Brown, Pe
colored, aged fifty years, while raft
ing logs at Bayou Lacombe, on the
21st inst., accidentally fell into the ij
river, and before assistancecould be e
rendered he was drowned. His u
holy was recovered, and Coroner
Oiae held an inquest over the re- a
mains on the 22d inst., the jury re- d
turning a verdict in accordance
with the above etas.
Ws Borrz.an Hxm.-As we were
about to cdose our office windows, h
the other evening, we observed a
small centipede coiled up on the
sill, apparently asleep. Probably
r the cold weather bad the effect of..
making him feel drowsy. We at
a once resolved to capture him.
a Arming ourself with a broomstick,
- we advanced on the unsuspecting
varmint. Placing one end of the tI
I stick immediately over his head, we
e 'came down on him," which had the
r. effect of disturbing his slumbers,
d and he kicked and sgqirmed as we 8
if imagine a centipede would who was
it being troubled with a severe attack
p- of nightmare. After a few seconds
d we lethim drop to the ground, where
ºt he crawled sigfaggedly about, as if
N- he had lost something and didn't
t know whereto find it. Bemembe*
ing how they secure these animals
in Western Texas, we got a smil
O vial and placed it in front of him,
then took a small stiek and directed
his course a little, when he glided
A serenely into his last resting place.
t Taking him into the office we pour
t- ed some turpentine on him and
fastened the edrk in tight, when he
* gave us an exhibition of what he
o knew about swimming. After
s Struggling a bew minutes he went to
e sleep again, as calmly as if anthing
had happened; but he don't wake
up any more. We concluded to
4_ take has measure, which we did by
a- standing on.thaautside of the bot
tle, and asing a tape line., He is
three inches and a half long, has a
pO red head, black body and yellow
a legs, and is not altogether "a thing
ge of beauty," although persons de
a siring to see either or both of as can
