0^ A friend, from tho country, stepped
in to look upon the Wonders of a printing
office, and while here. accidentally stuck
his elbow into a galley of type, squabbling
the same so as to render the whole unfit
for use at present. This will account
for the meager appearance of our columns
this week. Among the articles jpied was
the details of the Fal of Sevastopol.
While upon this subject, we would ask our
friends, who call upon us, to be carefil
where they place their hands or elbows,
as a little carelessness on their part gives
us a mint of trouble.

Mr. Rose's establishment will be quite
an acquisition to our town, antd we hope
he may meet with the stAceess his energy
and perseverance so justly deserves. The
business qualifications of Mr. Rose and
his indomibrble energy, and skill as a
workman,will insure him success, wherev.

O(About nine o'clock, on Sunday night
last, the citizens of our generally quiet
village were aroused by an alarm of fire
something very unusual, and very alarm
ing, to us, from the fact that we are so
very badly.prepared for the reception of
suca a visitor. The fire took place in the
foundry and machine shop of Mr. W. H.
II. RIDER, and caught from a furnace in
which Mr. 'R. had been melting brass.
Not much harm was done, however, owing
to the timely warning given, and the extra
exertions of our citizens, in subduing the
While upon this subject we would sug
gest that some preparations be made for
an emergency of this kind, in the shape
of ladders, hooks, buckets, &c. From
what we can learn, there are not more
than half a dozen ladders in the place,
and in case a fire should break out, we
would not know where to find them. And
it is too great a tax upon our merchants to
have their new buckets used on such oc.
casions. People are too reckless, on such
occasions, to be entrusted with the light
pine buckets which are kept in the stores.
Fire buckets should be purchased, ladders
and hooks should be made, and kept in
some secure, though accessible, place,
and used only on such occasions. If a
fire should break out anywhere in the
neighborhood of Lester's Corner, there
would be no alternative but to let the most
valuable portion of the town burn to ashes,
whereas if we were well supplied with
the articles above mentioned, the greater
part of it might be saved.
What say our citizens, in regard to the
purchase of four or five dozen buckets,
and as many ladders, hooks, ropes, poles,
&c., as would be necessary on such occa.
sions? The importance of these sugges
tions cannot fail to he evident to all who
own property in our town. Let some one
start the thing, and we believe that in less
than forty-eight hours, enough money can
be raised, by subscription, to purchase all
FROM THE CROSSING.
Friend Ceres: You were kind enough
to publish and eulogise a few lines I wrote
you a few weeks since, I propose again to
trespass upon your columns with afew ob.
servations upon the same subject therein
discussed. And firstly let me tell you that
to.day or to-morrow certain, the last rail
will be laid on the Opelousas road between
,New Orleans and Tigerville. This is a
most complete fulfillment of Mr. Bailey's
promise to the company and to the public
that he.would have it finished thus fat by
the first of October, and will make the tn.
exampled distance ot about eight miles of
laid and finished Railroad track, in Lou
isiana or the South, in a little over thirty
one days. If thepublic will now come to
the rescue, and do what each can do ' to.
wards pushing on the work with "material
aiu," the present able and persevering
Board of Directors will push it on to the
banks of the Berwick's Bay at once.
.Since writing you before, I have had
ample opportunity to witness the value ol
the Terrebonne Canal between the Rail,
road an Ilonma, and upon that subject I
propose to say a few words. If the pres.
ent Canal Company is insolvent and can.
not or will not make the necessary repairs
to secure a free navigation for flat and
tow-.boats, why not petition the -Legisla.
tueS the coning winter, to dissolve the
pipsent iolated charter, and make appro.

in one year; at any rate, you would grad
ually work it out, and at last have two
Ssplendid sources of profit on all you might
invest in it. Look at the new Canal and
Shellroad from New Orleans to the Lake.
2 It has been to the original shareholders a
mint of money. One great advantage you
would have in adopting this plan would be
the immediate source of revenue from the
canal, and then let each man, planter and
merchant come up and subscribe what he
or she can to aid these improvements
along. The canal could not fail to be a
source of. revenue at once, whilst the road
would in two or three years also be a fine
source of profit.
There are other suggestions which I
will make in another communication. C.

COL. TnIBODAUX'S LETTER OF ACCEP
TAYce.-Below we publish the letter of
Col. Thibodaux, accepting the nomina.
tion of Senator for this district:
TEEREBONNE, 27th Sept. 1855.
Gentlemen:-I have the honor to ack
nowledge the reception rof your commu
nication of the 25th, announcing my nom.
ination, by the American party, as their
candidate to fill the vacancy in the Senate,
occasioned by the death of our most es.
teemed citizen, the late Col. P. B. Key.
This unsolicited, and I may say, unmer
ited favor, coming from the young, vigor
ous and patriotic American party, is -
temptation too great to be resisted. Let
us prepare, gentlemen, for the approach.
ing contest. Our cause is just; our bond
cf union is the love of our native land.
Our first struggle may meet with defeat:
but the time is not far distant when our
cause shall triumph.
For my part, gentlemen, whatever may
be the tate of the election, I shall ever be
proud to have been the American nomrri
nee for the Senate of Louisiana.
I have the honor to be, gentlemen, yonr

AN IMPERIAL BOUDOIR.
A Baris correspondent of the ew
York Herald, furnishes the followin des
cription of the boudoir built for th Em.
press, at the Exhibition :
"The door opens on a little salon, which
the fairies might have chosen for their
court of audience. A carpet of white
silk receives the imperal foot, and a can
opy and six fauteuils in dead gold, and
covered with needle work from the hands;
of the famous Madame de Maintenon. Oh!
if, in the palmy days of her liaison with
Louis the Fourteenth, the grand monarque,
she could havedreamed the use to be made
of her handiwork-more there for the im
perial repose. The walls are panelled in
white and gold, the centres, being filled
with the same needle work which covers
the chairs, and the ceiling is formed into
a large oval medallion, on which angels
floating among azure clouds are beautifully
painted, hovering around the two letters
N. and P., artistically combined, as if
to protect the imperal humanity whose
names they indicate, from every breath of
taint or injury. A small door.way on one
side of the fireplace, draped over with a
curtain of white silk and golden fringe,
conducts you to a species of tent chamber
from the half spiral plafond of which fall
all over the walls, rich blue silk hangings,
relieved with embroidered silver. Over
the mantlepiece is a mirror from Venise,
whose beautiful from at once bespeaks its
origin; and in the corner, placed on a
toilette table, covered with Honiton lace, is
a dressing glass, from the house of Star de
Mortimer, London, framed in silver, of.
the most elaborate workmanship. In ex.
pectation of the Empress's immediate ar
rival, two of the imperal domestics, in
state liveries, entered this little room
while I was there, and spread on a small
table of inlaid Parian marble, supported_
on a golden pedestal, formed of Lilliputian
fingers, whose illustrative character I had
not time to examine, a trayofrefreshments
such as Venus herself might have tasted,
and still remained an ethereal goddess,
I was given to understand t:aat the fittings
of this luxurious retreat were all thade so
as .t be 1'removable at pleasure, and may

A runaway couple, "true lovers" of the
most fervent Yankee stamp, arrived at a
small inn-near Boston, and wanted the
landlord to send for a minister to "splice
'em," and to 'be quick about it.'
The Landlord complied, and the "li.
censed minister' came.
"Be you the minister?" asked the bride.
"I am," replied he.
"Oh you be, eh? What's your name?"
"Wal, now, Stiggins," said the Yankee,
" 'do it up brown, and your money is ready,"
and forthwith the reverend gentleman
"You will please join your hands."
"The Yankee stood up by his lady-love,
and seized her fervently the hand.
"You promise, Mr. A- " Said the
parson, "to take this woman-"
"Yaas!" said the bridegroom.
"To be your lawful and wedded wife?"
That you will love and honor her in all

and to the especial annoyance of all pres

"OfIe moment, my friend," responded
the minister slowly; for it occurred to him
that the laws of his State did not permit
this performance without the "publish.

"I will consult-" said the minister,
"No, you won't-no, you don't! You
don't consult nothin' nor nobody, until this'

this he turned the key, and put it (amidst
the titterings of the witnesses whom the
landlord had called in) in his pocket.
Seizing the hand of his trembling bride,
"Go on, now, strait from where you left

"Then in the presence of these witness

"Hoorrah!" shouted Jonathan, leaping
half way to the ceiling with joy.
"And what God hasjoindi together, let
