We have been informed that Mr.
Alexander Magee, who resides
in the parish of Washington,
made ten barrels of molsses from
one acre of cane. Most of the
stalks contained from twenty-eight
to thirty joints.
Mr. J. Cahier's new stmre is now
open and ready for business. This
gentleman is too well known to re
quire any introduction to the peo
ple of Covington, and we have no
doubt the mere announcement of
his opening a store will be sufficient
to aecure him a liberal share of pat
ronage. Mr. Cahier has secured the
services of our popular young friend
Mr. Harry Mortee, who will be ever
ready to attend to the wants of ens
tomers. See advertisement.
On Wedneeday cotton in Liver
pool went down to 5; pence, and in
New York to 9 3-16 cents-the low
eat point that the staple has touched
since the war.
Receipts this week, 110 bales.
