Catalhela Parish. fgtI ene of the old and originally .zmsa~jtis s, and although portions of ,t. isalwry have been cut off from to time for the formation of new bhe, iis estill one of the largest and pearsely settled parishes of the The Ouachita river outs it two unequal portions, the larger S3 the west side, which may be subdivided by an imaginary Sthe most easterly point of Lake, on Little river, to er on the Ouachita. All of lne are rolling hills, exoept toreek and branch bottoms, arte very rich, and a few pine post-oak flats, which lie mostly. in the lnorthern and northwestern por lions of the parish, and are very poor, yet nutan many rich and fertile spots. l' ie oil of these flats is generally a oi*iy loam; that of the hills light, ady, underlaid with a clay sub .s.li. The average yield of these hills is about one-third of a bale of cotton and fifteen to twenty bushells of corn, while the creek bot toamLtl hammooks produce from one haltf al bate of cotton and twenty to thbi ,ve bushels of corn to the acre. -Man of the hills are productive in all .our oeld crops, vegetables and fruita, and astiey are not suffllently high or precipitous to wash badly, the land to suEoepttble of a hi h state of improve ment. On these hills are thousands of acre sof Govern, nPt lands, which,under the Oht et,etld law, may be anquired by actual settlers at a cost of about tein .ents an aere; Ihere are other etLt~ do of acres--hills ihammocks ad b)ttoms-which may he bought on t tr s . onable terms; and there are St..lier destrable lands which may be - wd without money and without price, as we will show directly. Seturninug now to our imaginary line: .Se tth of it we find a low level country. emlbraoing the best portions of Little, Old and -Black rivers, and also includ itn Oatahoula and Holloway's prairies. Trinity is a thriving village of four or t ors stores, chiefly supported by the LAttle river country; it is so named from the fast that itstands at the mouth of three rivers, viz, the Little, Ouaohita Sna Tensas which here come together form Black river. While the Mis ' iuippi levees opposites Natchez and above that point remain open this re lion is subject to inundation; conse ., 5etly these rich lands went under in 174,118765 and 1876, and may possibly (butot probably) doso in 1877. Some Sof tbi panters have been casting about for a e-op that will mature after the waters ,'ubside in June; the desidera tum one gentleman thinks he has found in the Chinese sugar cane, sor *,ghuml whieh yields about three barrels Of mnoflbes to to the acre worth $15 each, or $!d per acre for shi months' work; whe if it were not for the water he woukdrut in twelve months, often thir ingOnl a crop of cotton, for which he wooidjealize only about $40 peracre. These fgures show that for labor actu ally eipendel t h sorghum pays 75 per cent more than cotton. The average produet of thtse lands is about a bale of the staple and thirty-five to forty bushels of corn, and when the Missis .LDpJPi levees aur, rebuilt and made secure -his will be a desirable locality, especial 1 lso to those who will grow cotton, as this region seems peculiarly adapted $ totaatculture. Most,'f thetillable lands of the Little river bottom lie within 15 or 80 milies of its mouth, or say below . aboula Lake. Abov this point the lley is subject to overflow from the late winter and early spring freshets, and is only valuable for its forests of S-tiier, muc:h of which finds its way to he' oSw Orleans market, being cut in summer anl tall, while the swamp is dry, and fleatel out in the spring freatets. CATAIIOULA LAIKE seems to be an enlargement of Little River. I lies Ireaily in the shape of a crescent; is about 25 miles long by from three to seven miles in breadth. Smumer It t or" neatrly dry anu re a prairie, with Little River ng through it, which furnishes an bundant supply of water for the herds of stock tLtt greZe on the grass which p-. n hA after the water goes off Towards fa'l innense numbers of .eese and ot her wild fowl congregate heroe ad furnish tine sport to the hunt. Near the head of the lake lives Mr. j Boyer, ia public spirited farmer w@ ,t~ roughly appreciates the im of attracting immigration to sh, and who shows the true 4 l;"I of euterprise by offering to donate acres of laud to each family who build a home, open a farm and oil. t it for two years-to the extent of or ten applicants. The lands Mr. Boyer thus offers to give r-.s consists of hills and hammocks, tow s a virgin state, well yet not . vily timbered with oak, pine, etc. furnIshing abundance of buidlang and fencing material, yet not so dense as to render the clearing expensive. This is a good locality and a rare opportunity for a colony of working farmers who have the means of supporting them eilvey untU the first crop is gathered. I.or ~urtber particulars, apply to Mr. $oy_ on the premises. or address him at White Sulpbur Springs post office, which is some seven miles distant. B Sicily Island, the Medicinal Springs -and same other objects of interest in this parish, are reserved for a future Alt IParming and Fancy Farming. Many ersmse seem to confound these two words--ti ke one for the other-or "-consider the terms synonymous; but ' such is not the oase; they may. and -o*f.ten do, Ihinclde each other. The fancy Sirmer to be suc essful must include , h farming; b'ut high farming does S necess+arily include any branch of ey farring. We remember to have seen a com maunioatin' not long since in one of our 4a"'griceu ural" pa pers from a Missis si ppi farner, we believe, (published ,:wtthout commInn), the purport of which Wm that he and his neighbors could not .fford high f.,rt irng; it was all they f ~ornl do to mnake a living without in l'4ulgtra in the exlmense, etc. Why, bless ur, life., man, high farming isthe very tilgo t* make v( u a living and pa, .:'oeathrinlg tesldes. " High" means otirih. complete, practical; it in -e: e not only thorough culture butt the.t jgdtelaus management of the f trm aa&ýi.ts att*parteuanoes and ramlifta tio t oit sno additional expense enot more than po a ejb .lf w.a ·*-·ol ay aaanae e fro day-when this~ wit i the rule and net the exceptioen. FAnor YamIoN has, of couree, rna ferred many lasting beneAts upon the ag.oultural world, and will cenfer many more. Some of the best varieties of field products--vet eablesl and fruits as well as many of the best breeds of stock--are the results of fancy farming, which includes not only fancy eiops, fancy methods of culture fancy stock, etc., but all kinds of experiments in the same. Many of these experiments are necessarily expensive, and should not be Indulged in by any one who cannot afford to lose the amount linvested therein. Learn to be a high farmer, and then you can indulge, to some extent, in fan cy farming; provided your inclinations lead you in that direction. small-Pox Remelt. A correspondent of the Stockton (Cali fornoa) Herald writes as tollows: I herewith append a recipe which has been used to my knowledge in hundreds of cases. It will prevent or oure small pox, though the pittings are filled. When Jannien discovered the cow-pox in England the world of science hurled an avalanche upon his head; but when the most scientific school of medicine in the world--that of Paris--published this recipe as a panacea for small-pox, it passed unheeded. It isas unfailing as rpte, and conquers in every instance. It is harmless when taken bya well per son. It will also cure scarlet fever. Here is the recipe as I have used it, and cured my children of scarlet fever; here it is as I have used it to cure small pox; when learned physicians said the patient must die, it cured: Sulphate or zinc, one grain. Foxglove (Digitalis), one grain. Sugar, half a teaspoonful. Mix with two table-spoonfuls of water; and When these are thoroughl mixed, add four ounces of water. Take a spoon ful every hour. Either disease will dis appear in twelve hours. For children smaller doses, according to age. sood Land Cheap and on Easy Terms. One thousand acres of land in the par ish of Tangipahoa, four mile. c.,,. itrom Amite City, 68 miles distant from New Orleans, on the Jackson Railroad, will be rented, leased or sold in quantities from 40 to 160 acres, on easy terms. If sold, a credit of five years will be given to actual settlers. The land is rolling and bottom. Cotton, sugar, corn, rice, ground peas and all kinds of vegetables grow in abundance. It is also an ex cellent fruit and grape section, good range for cattle, and well adapted for raising poultry. The climate is very agreeable and location healthy. Some of the land has been cultivated, the other easily cleared. Special and very favorable inducements will be offered to families. A large saw mill close by.

A Thousand Irreslstible Alinrements for the Fashionably Inclined. [Saturday Night.] Signs of spring are approaching. Heavy win. ter fabrics, that have been so temptingly dis played for mon he, are given a secondary place, aud soft, pretty, tinted fabrics, of uedtinm weight, are given space wherein they show to best advai'tage. We ate to have basket cloths, stripes of va rious knds, and a new plaid known as herring bne ; then there : re damassie pongees, and both silk a,,d wool Balerna plaids. 'I'hin there are such a variety of Cabries in solid colors that a more mention would require too much sp oe; and we can only say that the new i i,portatious - many of which are still in bond, and we have only seen samples, through the kin Iness of importers-are lovely in couor and tcx ure, and at pli:ea that make even a gram b or emi e. One thing we have notcoed-the en'ire absence of iagouais asmung the new goods. Biasket oilthe seem to have taken their p:aco untlle. A g wd ides. 'lt e Itket s c r e o nmuch pr~et tier. And t,,, the Itrlxicau grenadinoe, that tas proved so favor to a fIo 1to, has gyvmn place to brucaded and danmasse ilr.''e; and tlhe velvet -Iripe will be a sooitte I wl.h a brocaded or fon l rd stripe of equal width. Grenadines in color will be more worn than ever tetore, and the new imp irtations wtll give as the beet shades of gray, myrtle-green, several sunades ot blue, and brown; while tor evening we can promise a mixture of gold cad black, and the cardinal and crioson will also appear. Gardual i-, however, to gi.e place to the lighter tint of deep rose. and we are told that costa ure have already been ordered from the other side, of rose-colored pinth and grenadine stripe. A pretty comobination for evening, don't you think? Pattern dresses are exhibited again in rich de signe-seft-odlging all wool fabrics, in gray, fawn or steel color; usually the trimmings are of a osrker shade. Ihen there are more fanciful aff.irs, with threads of gold and sliver through them. Camel's hair, or the sift fabrics known by that name, come in brken plaids; and the newest are c.rded, with solid ast iie between. Serges are also seen. These are in small basket pattern--armure and matelasse designs-and are the prettiest of all pretty serges ever im ported. In percales and cambric., which come under the head of wash goods, these are the two Kinds foulard and p.in fi ash. The foulards, this season, are in the favorite basket and matelase designs; and the colors, olive green, ink blue, brown, with cardinal, gold or silver. These are almost as handeomo as the real foulard, and will be used as overdresses with the plain foulard. and costumes of this kind are really pretty enough for everything but full dress. Lwnus and organdies will be even more fash ionable than last year, and dome in ever so quaint d ,tlns and coloring. Bray and white will be a favorite combination in figures and palm leaves over a pure white ground. und, too, the solid colorse, with borders ,ui trimnmes imitating lace and fringe, that were sparingly worn last season, bid fair to be muah worn tuis year-tust is, if the stock pur oh es, d is cay indication. Percaes are fast taking the place of the long. netd priunts. They are muon wider, always f.,nd to be fast in color, and they have a richer liak than a print; while, taking into con sideration the oifference in the width, the price v ties but a till:. Tae Irimom nge in vogue through the winter b d lair to hold prestige through the spring, only iu lighter f irm. All widths of galloons will be use for ornamenting rich co-tumes and umamer olo ke-whion, by-ihe-way, will be much shorter tuan those of winter. and more tanciful in design. Kuite-pl. atings are yet to be used, although so many say they are h arti:y sick of them. A se)lish suit, prepared for Lister, of black rItl, was mado, to this style: Medium length, with a demi-fl unce, which was edged with a kuiie-ple tinu two inches deep. A polouanse, ver, seep, was cut with an over-tablier, finished with a deep-netted fringe. And the rest of the p loadise ek,rr, with a knie-pleating, headed with ilk galloon. Pain riles, that will no longer do duty as thet are, are remo tlled with brocaded or damask de i gn-. The newest fancy f on the other side is, o make alternate of the two fabrios; for in stance, the front and baeek is of brocade, the 'i ter of pla.rn ik. We ean imagtPe such a taugerbred a8.ir will over meet with aauh saver here. ?oeasse.w tes k( e ttr qe zll s, ~30l" o s, wtM h eats Rai" have reeutly bee imported.

At a fashionable ball, a few evenings since as Imported costume of light yellow, with prot's' trimmings of black, was a.eompeied by black *ndressed kide that reached the elbow. Eeru shlp ard fancy straw- will be among the avorlt e early bats. The capote bide fair to .e the coming hat, and this surmounted with wrethbe of rose leaves. And wreaths of leaves aed flowers will be the favorite trimming for all. Where silk or rabb,n is used, it wlll be the soft oloinging style, and put around the erown in a band ver hotly plain, with loops ahd flowers at the back. A new sleeve is so e at ad shi red as to form a puff abhve the elbow, then fits the aim below and loseln at the wrist. The deep-pointed cuff of linen or embroidery i worn over. This is a fancy that will answer for early spring, but we prediet lowing sleeves will be worn for summer. And bte Martha Washington, mostly, for thin cos tumes.
