GODEY LADY'S BOOK for December
has been received, and fully maintains
the reputation of this, the longest es
tablished magazine in America. It
was first issued on July 1st, 1830,
under the supervision of the editors
and the propietor who, for the period
of thirty-nine years, have so success
fully conducted this popular periodical.
During its vigorous life, Godey has
everywhere been recognized as the
friend of woman, the'arbiter of fashion,
the encourager and publisher of the
best literature of the day.
NEw Fmr.-The large new build
ing of Bernhart, on DeSiard street, was
hardly in a condition to be occupied
before the dry goods and groceries
began pouring into the two large
rooms of the lower story. Curious to
know what was going on-a very
curious failing among our profession
we inquired who was going to occupy
the building. To which theoreply was
given that SHIELDS & ODELL were to
be the occupants. These two gentle
men, it seems, have left their separate
stands on Grand and Grammont
streets, and, uniting their capital, pur
pose doing a general mercantile busi
ness in the building mentioned above.
There are both experienced merchants
and will make a strong business firm.
METHODIST COURCHa.-The Rev. Mr.
Evans is now actively engaged can
vassing for subscriptions to aid in the
erection of a church for his congrega
tion. The lot has already been pur
chased and paid for. Mr. E. has
something like two thousand dollars
subscribed, but ought to have more,
considering his zeal and the ability of
those to whom he has applied. We
were surprised to see leading mer
chants of the place -men who have
twenty thousand dollar stocks of goods
-subscribing only the pitiful sum of
ten dollars, and large property holders
giving no more than toiling mechan -
ics. Surely such givers forget the
source of their prosperity, and over.
look the fact that there is such a sin is
mocking the Deity.

servative says he prints his paper head
to foot, for our convenience. It is con
venient, for it saves us from standing
upon our head to get at his meaning,

BRIDGING THn RIvER.- The fair
prospect of the completion next year
of several miles of the Ouachita end
of the middle division of the N. L. &
T. Railroad, ought to put our business
men and property holders to thinking
in earnest of building across the river I
a wagon and foot bridge in connection
with the Railroad bridge. It can I
easily be done, and the money raised
by stock subscriptions and a town and
parish tax. The tolls will soon re
imburse the outlay for building.
LAND OFFICE..-Commissioner Wil
son has issued an order consolidating
the Land. Office at Monroe with the
Land Office at New Orleans, and di
recting the Register of the latter office
to effect the removal of the records by
the 1st of December. We regret this
action of the Commissioner, but are
pleased to hear that his instructions
admit of a great deal of business
heretofore necessary to be done in per.
son,. being done now by an agent or
CAN't GET THEIR PAPERS.-A
source of great annoyance to us i s the I
frequent complaint coming from sub
scribers that their friends and neigh -.
bors take their papers from the post
office and fail to deliver them to the
persons to whom they are addressed.
These complaints are no doubt well
-grounded, but we are powerless to
apply a remedy, unless we place bor
rowers generally upon our dead-head
list. This we cannot do, as they are
too numerous. We can only chide
such persons for their disregard of the
rights of others and their want of
independence in appropriating anoth
r's paper rather than expend three
dollars to obtain a paper of their own.
It is treating a publisher bad enough
to borrow a paper after the owner has
read it, unless it be an occasional oc
currence; but to borrow and keep it
without the subscriber seeing it at all,
is the climax of bad treatment. We
would as soon be caught borrowing a
pot and keeping it as our own, or "a
turn of corn" and never replacing it.
The difference is infinitesimal.
LADIES' FAIR FOR BENEFIT OF EPIs,
COPAL CaURCH.--The attention of our
readers in this and the adjacent par
ishes is particularly directed to the
announcement of Mrs. Sarah Richard
son in re:erence to the approaching
Ladies' Fair for the benefit of Grace
Church. We are almost afraid to tell
bow extensive are the preparations
which have been and are still being
made to render the occasion one of
surpassing eclat and public utility.
For months the fair members of Grace
Church have been exercising their
talents and industry in behalf of this
Fair, and have levied contributions
on North, East and West to complete
their assortment of merchandise. They
are now working at the finishing
touches with a zeal and. enthusiasm
which are the certain harbingers of
success. We are assured that the
management of the Fair will not be
left to chance, or conducted solely with
the view of obtaining the greatest I
amount of money possible from its
patronrs. Reasonable prices will be
fixed on all articles, and full change
returned in all cases where the purs
chaser is entitled to change. An
abundance of edibles will be prepared,
of which visitors may partake at a
moderate price and with perfect con
fidence in the cuisine. God has bles
sed our section in health and in store;
it is becoming that we should seize the
occasion so near at hand to acknowl
edge gratefully His mercy and good

TRE WHOLE STORY IN A NUTSHELL.
The office of the stomach is to convert thefo in-to
to i crean-liko semi-fluid, called Cirrate. This is
efl-ctted partlyleny the action of a solvent. called the
gastric juice, which exudes from the coating of the
stomach, and partly byv a mechanical movement of
that organ. whch ehrne, as it were. the dissolving
aliment. The CrIIYIv passes trom the stomach into
the duodenum, or entrance to the bowels, where it
is'sulbjeted to tlhe action of the bile, and the nutrit
ious portion of it converted into a fluid called Chyle,
which eventually becomes blood.

act speciticaliv upon the liver, strengthening it. and
