Neighbor's Wfft~," to be followed each

The ladies of Monroe have this Ex

FIRE.-The new residence of ('ol. R.
Richardson, corner of Oak and Catalpa
streets, Was (lestroyed by fire, at the
early hour of (light o'clock, Sunday
night. The building was unoupeedl,
but contained some furniture, and also
a lot of paint brushes and material be
longing to Mr. D. L. Frost. Probable
loss about $2,000.
The fire was undoubtedly the work
of incendiaries. MIr. Win. Garretson
saw three negroes hurriedly quitting
the premises at the moment the fire
had fairly begun, which, he states, was
·et in two places, some twenty-five feet
apart. Other persons saw the same ne
groes, and a faint hope is entertained
that they may be identified. It has
not been very long since we heard of
threats of destroying the property of
men politically obnoxious to certain in
dividuals, and we saw some of their
tools smiling at the consuming scene on
Sunday night. Are we realizing these
The river, after rising about six feet,
commenced falling Sunday ; but heavy
rains at Camden and below, justify the
belief that the stage of water will very
soon justify the entrance of large boats
and continuous navigation throughout
the season. Several 'mall boats are in
the river. They find no difficulty in
getting good trips, but the passenger
lists are small.
A considerable bar has bteel formed
at the mouth of Red River, detaining
boats for longer or shorter periods; but
it is believed the recent rise in this
river will remove the trouble at that
The boats are taking cotton from this
point at $1.50 per bale, and bringing
freights at card rates.
The Ouachita Belle is looked for in a
few clays, and the Gov. Allen will be
out soon. The Bannock City will be
around from St. Louis to-morrow to es
tablish a semi-weekly line from Mon
roe to Camden. Capt. Lament, com
manding, is a thorough-going steam
hoatsman anti informin us that he
"comes to stay." He commands a
swift and elegant little boat.
There is about seven feet of water on
the Mionroe bar.
