The New Orleans City Item keeps of
utp its harping on the false yellow It
fever which prevailed ill New Or- be

pear that the Times-Democrat was ter
only a scare-scrow. There were over red
two thousand cases of fever in New we
Orleans, and the reports made by the bec
T.*D. were accepted as the truth.

hoped that enough of labor can be
placed on the work to complete it, to

Times-Democrat says that "there re-d

which is supposed to be finished by di

ths location of the levee thirty yards
is as much as can be expected from

of 8000 oubdo yards a day, which

desire rail connection in this parish a

mills for tent years on all propertly it atI
the ward and that the town of Mer oni

every reason to" belive it will do. of
These genttlemen propose to begin san
to work on the new road as soon as the
