the favorable circumstances. At the
white school there were 93 in attend

I ored school. Prof. Roberts and Super
intendent C. R. Egelly expressed them.
rc selves as being highly gratified with
ay the good beginning, and both look
C. forward to a successful term. There
to is no reason why a child should not
') get a good common school education i
at the public school here, as well as
elsewhere. There are five teachers, t
lay all capable of teaching the classes s b
i- signed to them. Prof. Roberts, as all
las know, is a graduate of the State Uni- ni
in versity at Baton Rouge. Mr. S. B. C
:Or Kennedy, who has been assigned the n'
new room just added to the school. is
a graduate of the Southwestern Pres
'- byterian University at Clarksville, in
9 Teun., which institution ho attended se
d. for four years, graduating with the ar
an degree of Batchelor of Philosophy. n
ii, The young ladies have all had the ad- ge
e, vantages of collegiate courses, and b
their former experience fits them for w'
the duties of the coming year. We Oi
have no doubt that Prof. Roberts will
ag give the same general satisfaction this
a- session as last session, and that the
y public school will prosper under his
V management, as heretofore. At any th
rate, we hope it will.

As predicted by the Banner-Demo

of Lake Providence, and of East Car

Cummins and wife, on Friday night of
last week, came up to all expectations;

ay along the river, and everyone looked
forward to an evening of pleasure on
board the elegaut steamer. The
Dewey lamded here ahout 8 o'clock in
the evening, and was boarded by a
large assemblage, both young and old,
who were greeted by the smiling face
of Mrs. Cumminus, the more sober

e THE JEWISH NEW YEAR.
Last Monday, September 24th, was
the Jewish New Year, which was ob.
served by our Jewish merchants by
the closing of their stores and the
keeping of the day according to the
custom of their people. The Jewish
Nqw Year varies in date each year,
according to the new moons. The
Jewish calendar is computed by the
uew moons, of which there are thir
teen in our year, so that their new
year will fall next September on the
13th of the month. It varies any.
where from Sept. 1st to Sept. 25th, but
very seldom comes in any other
month, sathough sometimes io the lat
ter part of August. The Jewish cal
endar dates from the beginning of
creation, which is considered to have
taken place about 3760 yearse and 8
months before the Christian era. The
present year, which began last Mon- a lar
day, is 5661. It is always observed as and
a holy day, a day of rest, when the ex
change of new year cards takes place
between the Jews, and the invocation
of blessings upon each other. I
On Tuesday of next week, Oct. 3rd. will
the Jewish merchants will close at 6 Dew

It is reported that the Valley Queen
will run in opposition to the steamer
Dewey in the New Orleans and
Bends trade, leaving on the same day.
This is done for the purpose of trying
to freeze out the Dewey, and the plan
ters and business mene should prevent
it if possible. The merchants of New
Orleans should not forget that Capt.
Cummins did not ask for any bonus
of $500 a week as other owners of
boats did, but simply asked for their
good will and support, which was
promised, and which promise should
be lived up to by the business men of
