-HARD times, in the true financial
meaning of the words, are upon a
large portion of the business men of
New Orleans, strange to say earlier
by several months than usual, and
Srumors and facts of failures reach us
almost every mail arrival. And the
causes assigned for these failures are
laid upon the country customers of
our unfortunate City merchants and
dealers, and great fears are enter
tained that there is more truth than
poetry in this assertion. We' ac
knowledge our inability to account
for this, admitting its truth, for bet
ter crops this year are made and
shipments have. been early and regu
lar to New Orleans, and are ahead of
last year in the cotton line alone, one
thousand bales. We write for this
locality and base our failure to see
into the matter from these home
facts. There seems te be here yet
some confidence that all will make
the trip and that Alexandria's ledger
will balance all right. We are buoy
ant in that fact favorable to our
community as safe business men.

over four hundred and fifty. At pre
sent the laborers have reached the i
Bertrand, twelve miles from here, and
have the embankment complete that
distance, averaging a height of six
and a half feet, by twelve feet wide
at the top. Though the work was
commenced ninety days since, yet in
that time not over forty-five working
days have been at the weather dispo
sal of the contractor. If the distance
accomplished in that time seems
short in miles, still the measurement
in yards foots up considerably more
than any work of the sort ever ac
complished in the State, and perhaps
in the South. The width and height
of the bed of the Road which we have
mentioned, was forcibly necessary to
reach a safe barrier from all over
flows, and is now computed at fully
twenty inches above the 1849 over
flow, and it was this necessity and
safety, which thus far has occasioned
so much cubic yard labor, and thrown
doubts to the uninitiated and croak
ers that the work was slow and un
The. contrary is surely the result
merged into a working fact, and the
interested public can rest assured
that the Contractor is doing the
lion's share in the accomplishment
and sure termination of the Road.
And it is no flattery to again assert
that the Directors of the Road, in
New Orleans. were more than lucky
in securing the services of such a
Contractor; it was that or no Road,
and now that high land will soon be
reached, fifty per cent. less grading
will be required the balance of the
route from Cotile to Mansfield.
A small and brief hint of how all
this was paid for and by whom, can
not fail to be of service for record,
and should not offend the laggards..
Thus far every dollar raised, collect
ed and paid out, has come out of the
pockets of the New Orleans share
holders, and not a single dollar has
been contributed, or rather paid in,
by the Parishes, or the people there
in, through which the Road is loca
ted, runs and must necessarily enrich
and benefit. In this there is a big
and sad moral, which with the best
inclination to follow, we will desist
for the present and rest our case for
the present with the recitation of the
above simple and plain facts.

DEATH OF THE VICE-PRESIDENT.
Henry Wilson, Vice-President of the

and should have had it from the first

we have been ignored all the time,

ative or Iarent of white children sat
on the Board. The contrary has al
ways been the case, and until now,
none but ignorant and debased negro
politicians have eomposed our educa

would have shamed any set of men
but the leaders of Radicalism in Ra

ly at least in our behalf; but though
hardened in political sins, not. to in.
sinuate personal crimes, on that line,
they have relented somewhat and the
present Board is the offspring of that

only want and ask our minority rights
and are determined to be heard in
the matter, and ask once more of
Barrett, DeLacy and Kelso to face
the music and march up to. -it. We.
*are not seeking to deprive them of
any spoils claimed by the victors but
only seek the restoration so long
withheld of our minority representa

they preside and rule with unremit

a summary of the ncontent:
1. "The Financial Grievance of
Ireland." This article briefly dis
cusses the financial relations of Great
Britain and Ireland, from the date of
the Union, and maintains that the
complaint is undue taxation of Ire
land, urged by the Irish party, is. an
unjust one; and that as to provision
made by the Imnieril Treasury f '
local objects, such as primary educa.
cation, police and poor relief, Ireland
-has no ground of complaint."
II. "Recent Editions of Moliere."
An interesting sketch of Moliere and
his works, founded upon facts and-de
tails brought to light within the past
III. "Forest Management." The
distribution of trees over the surface
of the earth, estimates of the forest
wealth of .the world, details of the
enormous consumption of timber the
effect of the destruction of the forests
upon climate, and the disastrous con
sequences of the persistent neglect of
those natural laws on which the
science of forestry depends, make up
an article which we would commend
to everyl cultivator of the land.
IV. "The Reresby Memoirs."
The memoirs of Sir John Reresby, of
which two editions have been pub
lished, one in 1734, and the other in
1813, have been recently reprinted,
with many valuable additions. The
extracts here given afford glimpses
of England during the reign of the
two last Stuarts.
V. "Ewald's History of Israel."
This article gives an outline of the
views adopted by Ewald, respecting
the composition 6f the historical
books of the Old Testament and
though controverting at some length
the author's peculiar theories, the
writer considers the work invaluable
to the biblical student. A very able
translation of this history has recent=
ly been published la London, in five.
The remainining articles-are, "Pr6
gress of the Kingdom of Italy,"
"Lawson's Travels in New Guinea."
"A Prussian Campaign in Holland,"
and"The Municipal Government of

cially the firt named, will be found
much profitable reading.
