As the steamer New Camelis was
lying in the New Basin at New Or
leans, last Thursday, the steamer
Gen. Hooker, which was passing
out, struck ber and injured her rud
der. This greatly interfered with
the management of the New Camelia
after she started to cross the lake,
which, together with the dark and
stormy night on the river, caused
her to arrive considerably behind
her schedule time. The damage
has been repaired, however, and
she will doubtless be here on time

It is a plesure to take a stroll
through the stores of Covington,
and see the large supplies of new
goods which our merchants have all
received for the accommodation of
their town and country friends. As
the holidays are upon us, now is the

distance should remember that the
sooner they come the larger variety
'they will have to select from, so
they ought to make up their minds
to come early and buy often.
There was a considerable falling
off in the arrivals of cotton this
week, which we suppose was mainly
due to the prevailing bad weather.
We do not expect to see any very
heavy receipts now until after the
