A LIrOIITiG CALCULATOR.-Our
friend Shattuck of the Woodville LRepub
lican evidently had his "thinking cap" on
when he took it for granted that all the
cotton transported by the W. F. Rail
rad came from Wilkinson County, and
then guessed that a thousand bales more
came by wagons, and then jumped to the
nvclasioin that Wilkinson County fur
nished Bayou Sara 11,000 bales or more
and then, last but not least, didn't cred
it us , itl the article from which he got
the figures upon which he bassed his er
roneous opinfons. Try it again Capt. J iu;
as Jacob Faithful would say "better luck
next ti me"-perhaps.
-They were walking up the middle of
the street, in the beautiful moonlight,
and as we leaned on the fence after ef
fecting the exodus of a musical member
of the grinualkin persuasion our ears were
greeted by a sound not unlike that occa
Mion by the pulling ofa mule's leg out of
a mudhole and a suppressed yet silvery
voice that said "oh, what would ma say
if she could see me now!" Our trouble
some cough was as usual on hand at the
wrong time and a retreat less dignified
than hasty marked the departure of the
unhappily happy pair up the dusty road.
He called around early in the morning to
explain that "of course-indeed-some
how or other-or perhaps likely-it was
doubtless, 'owing to circumstances be
yonnd his controll'-really-very im
mensely accidental a-a-n-d hoped if he
had done anything he was sorry for-he

words to that effect. We promised not

a valuable present entirely as an evidence
of her approval of the noble course we

A Nica "JUG FULL."'-We have not
yet succeeded in our endeavors to get
within the interior of our new jail in or.
·der to inspect its many conveniences &c.
&c., that cost the builder so many days
of'care and toil, butwe know whose ef
forts in that direction have been re
warded with thebqmost complete and com
prehensive.success. It is said that there
are other ways of compassing a dog's
departute frotmn this sublunary sphere
than by choking him to death, and act
uing on this theoyy, Sam Bonnett, John
Mathews, Thos. Price, Robert Ball, Winm.
Hendricks, Charles Williams, Samuel
Dalton, Geo Molek, Horace Bowser, Jim
Branch and Andrew Coleman, all citi
zens of African descent, devised a means
of obtaknilg admittance to the desired
goal, which if not entirely original, yet
bears some claigns to the credit of being
perseveringly pursued and successfully
accomplished. On Saturday night last,
these delectable personages presented
themselves at the door of the old school
house at the top of the hill where some
colored people of both sexes had p'ace
ably assembled to indulge in 'the inno
cent amusement of "tripping the light
fantastictoe," and being determined to
view the charmed recesses of the inner
depths of that mysterious building whose
hospitaple dto s geope'd alone by abesvy
Hammer, proceeded to yell like the blood
thirsty ftilowers of the chieftain Joseph,
after which they politely extinguished
the lights, courteously greeted the as
sembled fair sx 'with ribald jests and
obseene: epithets, tore the window sash'
from the building and finadl'y dispersed
the assemlbled "beauty and gallanttry"
amid a glorious usiladeo or fire arms.
"The laborer is worth of his hire," and it
was not in the nature of things that these
enterprising gentld'men should go unreo
warded. Accordingly, on Monday last
Constable Briant, armed with a writ from
Justice Raynhaum, based upon the affida
vit of the Parish Attorney, invited the
heroic band to the enjoyment of those
pleasures that are unknown save to those
who have been afforded the inestimable
privilege of "playing cheekers with their
noses." On Tuesday morning last, the
whole posse waived preliminary exam
ilation and were held in the sum of $10)
each, to appear at the November term of
the District Court and to keep the peace
of the commonwealth in the mean time.
As a distinguished individual once re
marked, "to drop poetry and speak plain
english," if these miserable scape graces
don't mend their ways, they will hear
one of these days of something to the
material advantage of the community.

Tihe various componnds known in ti"
manrket rs COelllical Paints, contain omy
sabour 50 per cent. of Paint; the balare:a
is water, introducled into the same by th.
nse of an alkali, to combine it. The
last mentioned Paints, so-called, only
weigh from 9 to 10 l6s per gallon, which
we think certainly.proves their lack or
capacity or body. When water is mix
ed with l'aiat, it onot only destroys i1*
body, but, to a: very great extent, its ad
hesiveness, which all'practical nen knour
is of the highest importance to prcservs.
in order to make a durablo Paint.
We think, fronm the statement we have
made, that buyers cannot fail to at ONCGI
perceive that their intCtsxst will be best
promoted by buying our Liquid PaiFln
u. e. Pure Paints),. in preference to tire
so-called Pains refcried to.
