St. John River, Fla., for a basket of

Mr. M. L. Dedman advertises his

Koch & Wetzel.
We omitted last week to call atten

recently embarked in the furniture
business in this city on Grand street,
two doors from J. J. Sanders. Both of
the members of the firm are experi
enced mechanics and understand the
various branches of their business.
They are working men, and only ask a
fair trial from the public. Their stock
of furniture will meet the demands of
our trade, or, if not, what is lacking
will be supplied promptly on order.
A number of the members of the
legislature passed through Monroe last
week en route for the Capital. Among
the number, we met Hon. J. D. Ham
mond, of Morehouse; Hon. W. C. Mar
tin, of Jackson, members of the House.
Messrs. Eugene Howard and J. L.
Aycock, tax-collectors of Lincoln and
Claiborne parishes, respectively, left on

A Very Cold Snap.
The Christmas sleet and freeze ended
with a thaw, Thursday. The day fol.
lowing, the ground froze hard and firm,
and Saturday morning snow began
falling, at 8 o'clock the snow measured
about 8 inches. Saturday there was a
light fall of snow, which was increased
during the night, and Sunday morning
the " beautiful snow" measured about
7 inches in depth. The thermometer
fell to two degrees above zero on the
Gth, the lowest thermometer ever
known in this locality. In 1835 it
marked 8 degrees, and in 1828, as we
are informed by Major 3ry, 5 degrees,
on the day known as the ",cold Fri
As we write (Thursday afternoon,
half-past three) our thermometer stands
at 28. The ground is frozen hard; the
water in the river looks dead and
milky, and all kinds of out-door work
and business is at a stand-still. It is
with difficulty we are enabled to get out

such ex trcme cold weat her.
snow, rain, slush and mud have
generally suspended all bpalness on the
levee, and it will undoubtedly be some
time before matters are righted and the
river front again present an animated
appearance. Boats up have light trips
and we presume will pasm down ditto,
as it is next to impossible at present to
load, even where cotton is ofirling.
The arrivals and departures since our
last have not been so numerous.
The John Howard came down at
noon Friday, and lay here until 4 p.m.,
loading, at which hour she went back
to Trenton and passed down early in
The Alex. Kendall passed up Satur
day morning. Whither she went we
know not, but suppose she went to the
head of navigation.
The Corona, for Camden, passed up
at 1 o'clock, Saturday morning. She
was due down yesterday, but had not
arrived, up to closing this report.
The John Wilson passed up shortly
after noon Tuesday, and the Bastrop
at 6 p. m. Both are due down to-day,
or to-morrow. Therefere, ye that wish
to take passage on either, ," watch and
wait," as neither will tarry very long
The John H. Hanna left New Or

The river at this point is rapidly
rising. Navigation on the Mississippi
is suspended above Memphis and on
the Ohio above Cairo. Friz up is
what's the matter.
The Police Jury.
Only three members of the new Po
lice Jury came to the meeting Monday.
The absence of the other members is
not matter of wonder, as the roads were
covered with snow and frost, and the
weather was most disagreeable. Noti
fication of a meeting next Monday has
been given, at which time the body
will organize for the next two years.
A President, Clerk, Parish Attorney
and Parish Treasurer will then be
chosen. There ought to be a full at
tendance of all the members. We give
Ward 1, A. D. Russel; Ward 2, Wm.
McQuillar; Ward 8, W. G. Kennedy;
Ward 4, I. Garrett; Ward 5, J. C.
Drew; Ward 6, Travis McLendon;
Ward 7, W. G. Dunn; Ward 8, A.
Myatt; Ward 9, John Fuller. These
are all good men, and in their hands
the affairs of the Parish are not likely
to be mismanaged.
New Family Grocery Store.
Attention is invited to the advertise
ment of Mr. C. C. Lewis who has Just
opened a family grocery store on De
Slard street, next door to H. Kinder
man's. Mr. Lewis has a fine lot of
fresh groceries which he offers at the
very lowest prices. All that he asks is
that buyers will give him a call and
get his prices.
Our old friend Mr. Jas. C. Drew was
in town one of the coldest days of the
past week, to attend a meeting of the
Police Jury of which he is a member,
and paid us a friendly visit. Mr. Drew
claims the seniority over Judge Lamy
by two months. The Judge was 78
years of ago on the 2nd of last month.
Mr. Drew's years sit lightly upon him,
and he is lithe and active as many men
of half his years.

At a meeting of the members of the
Louisiana Annual Conference, Rev.

offered and adopted:
Whereas, The urbanityof Capt. J.W.

John H. Hanna, extended to us since
our embarkation, so conducive to the
happiness of travelers, and in the re
duction of fare to the members of the
Louisiana Annual Conference of the M.

character as to increase our already
great respect for and confidence in
them; therefore, be it
Resolved, That we take great pleas
ure in recommending the steamer
John H. Hanna, of the Ouachita River
Transportation Co., and her officers to
the traveling public.
Resolved, That we request the secre

Riditor Ouachista Telegraph:
I noticed in Saturday's edition of the
New Orleans Democrat a communication,
or rather a report, by one E. Shearman, a
Deputy U. S. Marshal, and as the same ro
fecta somewhat upon myself, I ask the
privilege of replying thereto through the
coldmns of your valuable paper.
To avoid making my communication too
lengthy, I will not pass upon the tissue of
falsehoods put in circulation by this man
as regards this community, but will leave
it to some one abler than myself to refute
the aslanderous charges made against the I
people of this parish and city, and will re
ply to that part only which relates directly
to myselt. To quote his own language:
"Notably is this the case in the post offio,
where a clerk, one Maurice Hayes,exeroises
a general inspection over the contents of
suspected private communications." All I
deem it neoeseary to say in reply to this, is,
that it is a lie, manufactured out of whole
cloth. It is, however, hardly necessary to 1
state even this. as it is patent to the minds
of all thinking men of this community who
know me, that it is a slanderous lie, only
calculated to have me removed from my
position as clerk in the post offico; but I
only desire to brand him before the world
as a low, base hireling, paid to manufaoture
lies for the benefit of those who expect to
get into offce by the cry of fraud and in
In conclusion, I would state that it is a
fact too evident to be doubted that the
falsehood quoted did not originate with
the writer, but was instigated by parties
his report but too clearly indicates. He
was "acting under orders." Upon the
strength of this groundless charge, I have I
been removed from my position as clerk in
the post office at this place.
National Burgical Institute.
Two of the surgeons of this notable
Institute will visit Monroe, La., Janu
ary 15th and 16th, 1879, stopping at the
Monroe House. They will have with
them a fine outfit of braces and surgi
cal appliances, and will be prepared to
treat all kinds of deformities and
chronic diseases, such as club feet, hip
disease, spinal disease, paralysis, piles
and flstula, catarrh, private diseases,
diseases of the eye, etc. For full par
ticulars, address National Surgical In
stitute, Atlanta, Ga.
The latest thing in politics is the
revival of the scheme to cut up the
State of Texas and make five States
blossom where only one now blooms.
Texas is certainly too large and un
wieldy for one sovereignty, but any
plan for her amelioration which in
cludes the sending of eight more Dom
ocratic Senatorsto Washington will be
vigorously opposed by the watchful
State of Rhode Island.
The well-known and popular seeds
men, Messrs. D. M. Ferry & Co., of
Detroit, Mich., are again before our
readers with their annual announce
ment. Their catalogue, which is mailed
free, is offered to all of our readers.

selves of this offer.
