Ye Olde Folkes Concerte.
Professor Jonathan Higginbotham
with his troupe and "A lyste of sacred
hymnes and tunes and likewise world.
ley songes," filled his appointment at
Gerspeeh's Opera House last Wednes
day evening. Bad weather was no
drawback to an anxious and expec
tant population. Every man and his
wife, and every young man and his
sweetheart seemed to be there.
The programme was attractive and
carried out In the happiest style by
the performers and received with rap
turous applause by the auditors. We
would be glad to call some names in
this connection, but whore all did so
well and received such marks of appro
bation, we doubt our own judgment
and adopt that of the public, that the
concert was a great success and the
performers without exception are wor
thyof the honors showered upon them.
1779-1879, one hundred years be
tween, show some little difference in
spelling, but the wit, the merriment
and the Joy of last Wednesday was no
doubt but an echo of a hundred years
ago. It seems to be a universal wish
that if the Professor ever comes around
again, ,"May we be here to see."
The heavy rains which fell dqring
the first three days of this week have
caused a big rise in the river at this
point, and at this writing it is rising at
the rate of one inch an hour, with fair
prospects of its continuance for some
time yet; although the rise may not
be so heavy as at present. We have
no doubt but that navigation in the
Ouachita to Monroe will be practicable
beyond the time stated by as last week

falling, but the late rais will no doubt
cause a big rise in the "Father of

rise will let her through, and we do
not expect her down before to-morrow
The John Wilson passed down about
1 p. m. Friday with a very light trip.
She only got as high as Moro landing,

The Corona, in place of the Hanna,

doubt, completed in time to leave

be found at the landing to-morrow

CIRCULAR LETTER Ii
From the oonroe oeard of Trade to i
the People of Oak Ridge. C
MoNROE, LA., April 15, 1879.
At a meeting of the Monroe Board c
of Trade held April 1st, we were ap
pointed a committee to ascertain the
cost, and to take the necessary steps to
have constructed a substantial roadway
through the Coolle Swamp, in your
parish. Accordingly two members of s
the committee, accompanied by L. N.
Polk, Surveyor and Civil Engineer,
visited in person the locality mention
ed and made an accurate measurement
of the distance across the swamp, from
which Mr. Polk prepared a careful es
timate of the cost of building a practl
cable road; which estimate, after being
submitted to and considered by the
Board, was thought to establish the
possibility of building the road by
private subscription, provided the Mon
roe Board of Trade could get definite
and reliable promises of the assistance t
and co-operation of the planters and t
citizens of Oak Ridge.
Besides the desirability and conven
ience of having this city made easy of
access to you, the pecuniary advantages
that you will derive from the construc
tion of this road are worthy of your
careful and earnest consideration. It
is known that "figures won't lie," and t
we think a moment's reflection will
convince you that it will be money in
your pocket and to the interest and
welfare of your community, for you to
lend your influence and all the aid you I
can afford to assist in the construction
of this road. In selling your cotton
at Oak Ridge, its merchants before
fixing the price they can afford to pay
you, must calculate that to haul same
to Girard is worth $1 per bale; freight
on same to New Orleans, $2 50; insur- 1
ance, 1I per cent. Thus, suppose a
bale of cotton weighs 400 lbs., to ship
and sell same in New Orleans, say at
10c per lb., would cost
Hauling to Girard. $1; freight $2 50..... $3 50t
Insurance on a valuation of $50per
bale......... ..... ............ ......... 63
Drayage, storage, labor and weighing 75
Brokerage iOc; commission $1........... 1 10k
Making it cost to sell one bale......... #5 OS
or about 1lc per lb to sell a bale of cot
ton worth $40, which as above would I
net $4402, placing its value at Oak
Ridge at 8Ae. On the other hand, with
this road opened to Monroe, enabling
you to haul your cotton there, her <
merchants figure thus: 1
Freight to N. O. by river or rail...... $1 00
Drayage, brokerage, commision, &. 1 I
M aking a cost of.......... ...... ..... p3 35
orloess than Z of a cent per Ib. The
amount saved on one bale, $2 63 (the
difference between $5 98 and $83 5)
may seem small, but on ten thousand
bales, the quantity which is estimated
as being produced annually on Oak
Bidge and the adjacent country, ag
gregates a yearly saving of $16,300.
The above figures bear with equal
weight upon the planter who instead
of selling at Oak Ridge ships his cot
ton to New Orleans.
This calculation, as you observe, does
not take into consideratiou the ditffer
ence between the cost to you of haul
long to Monroe and hauling to Oak
Ridge for the reason that we estimate
that more than the difference is saved
to you in the cheaper price at which
you can purchase goods in this market,
for while Oak Ridge has to pay on a
barrel of flour $1 0b freight to Girard
and ZSe for hauling to the Ridge, mak
ing a oust of $1 40 per barrel, the freight
on same to Monroe is '50c, a dlfibrence
of 90c, which enables our merchants to
sell their goods at what would be cost
on same to the merchants of Oak
Ridge and yet realize a fair profit.
Trusting that you will give this mnat
ter immediate attention, we are,

MARRIAGE OF THE lNDUbT1.
[New York San, 11th.]
It has been finally arranged, after
many diseuasions between their amit
lies, that the midgetsare to be married.
Lucie Zarate, the prospective bride, is
fifteen years old, and weighs a trifle
less than five pounds. Her face is
bright, but not prepossessing. The
bracelets she wears cannot be bLckled
aroand the third finger of a man of
ordinary size. Her shoes (made to or
der) are 21 inches long, and her gloves
measure about one Inch from the tip
of the longest finger to the button at
the wrist. Her cap was made origin
ally for a doll in a Broadway show
window, and is a good fit. In the
matter of jewelry she is profuse. On a
each hand she wears a diamond ring,
her brooch is a diamond, and she has a
fondness for dangling ornaments on (
her ears, such, for instance, as a small
diamond supplemented by a California
gold quarter of a dollar.
Gen. Mite, whose real name is F. J.
Flynn, weighs nine pounds, and is d
fourteen years old. His face is bright o
and intelligent, and his conversation p
does not belie it. P
"'Are you going to marry Luciee?""
the reporter asked him. tl
"Yes, we are going to be married." 8
"Next Saturday a week."
"No," Interrupted the female dwarf, a
"next Sunday. I want it on Sunday."
It seems that the marriage is one of 1
convenience as well as supposed aflbe
tion. The dwarfs, belonging to diflbr
eat families, are liable to be separated S
at any moment. It is thought best,
therefore, to bind them by ties that /
cannot be broken by show managers a
or disagreeing parents. Gen. Mite is Q
twice the weight of his prospective ,
The preparations for the wedding P
are going steadily forward. The bride
is to wear a white satin dress studded
with seed pearls. Small as her form -
Is, It is estimated that the bridal dress -
contains no less than 1000 pearls. The 4
bridegroom is to wear his full dress
suit, excepting that his vest of black
cloth will be replaced by a white vest.
Miss Zarate belongs to the Episcopal
Church, while Gen. Mite's family are
Roman Catholics, and it was on the t
question of religion that the families
differed. This difference was finally
The OUACHITA TELEGRAPH began 1
the discussion, some time ago, of the
question whether the constitution to
be framed by the newly elected con
vention should be submitted to the
popular vote for approval or not. The
act of the Legislature calling for the
convention provided for such a sub
mission, but this, the TELEGRAPH
says, is not necessary, and would entail
on the State the heavy expense of an
other and superfluous election. The
TELEGRtAPI complains that this ques
tion was not taken up and discussed by
the State press as it should have been,
and that its proposition did not even t
receive a second. A second to the mo
tidn, however, comes at last, and no I
less than three papers-the Shreveport
Standard, Claiborne Guardian and
Franklin Sun-indorse the TELE- t
GlAPII's Idea, urging the convention
to put the new constitution into force
at once without submitting it to the
popular vote. The other country pa
pers who have touched on this subject
do not agree with the TELEGeRAPHI and
Its seconds.-N. 0. Democrat.
A characteristic incident of South
American politics is reported by the
Buenos Ayres correspondent of the
Cologne Gazette. Don Carlos Soto,
formerly Consul of the Republic of
Uruguay in London, organized a Con
spiracy against the life of Col. Latorre,
Governor of the Republic. As he was
describing his plan of action at a meet
ing of the conspirators held in a room
of the barracks of the 3d Regiment of
the Line the door suddenly opened and
Latorre walked in. Advancing upon
Soto, the Governor quietly said: ,"Be
fore you kill meCarlos, I will kill you,"
and struck him on the head with a
loaded whip. Soto.fell to the ground 1
and a soldier of the Governor's suit
dispatched him with a dagger. Not
witstanding this Latorre is, says tlhe
correspondent, almost popular in
