The weather in the country is all that could be desired. Farmerville Union parish, will soon hold an election for munilcpal officers. The parish tax of Terrebonne is six mills for general purposes and two mills for public education. Pumpkins, peas, potatoes and corn will be planted to an unusual extent in Union parish this year. The physicians of Avoyelles are in session at Marksville. The cause of this melancholy meeting is unknown. The hide crop of Vermlliork is unusu ally large this year, probtbly owing to the bad winter that killed so many cat tie. " Spring, blossoms, little birds, zephyrs,' et it omne gents, figure con spcuously just now In our eountry ex ohatnges. The country paperS are showing a want of feeling on the .eubjeot of alto. gether abolishing paupers as off8iials in this State. The editors of the rural papers are all "eternally indebted and everlastingly obliged" just now for a small piece of wedding cake. The merchants, doctores lawyers, etc., of"Abbeville refuse to pay licenses, on the ground that the town, not being ex pressly authorized by its charter to col lect licenses, cannot collect them. "Avoyelles has eighteen farmers and only four thousand agriculturists," mourns the Marksville Bulletin. "What a sad commentary upon agricultural pursuits! Hfow many would make first class farmers, and how few will reach the goal of their ambition. Yet such is life. Immoderate ambition is frequent ly fatal." The people of Vermilion parish out side of the parish seat, Abbeville, com plain, with reason, of the statute which provides that Abbeville is to pay no part of the parish expenses, and yet to saddle nearly all its criminal expenses on the taxpayers of the parish.

Street fl- fights, in which pistols play a pro minent part, are of every day occur rence. "These lawless acts proceed," says the Assumption Chronicle a i u p .blica . paper "almost exoluslvel to from our colored Republcan cittizens." - A colored man named Terrence was "- drowned last Friday In Guidry's ooulle, t near Sebastopol, Vermillion parish, while diving down to examine a seine et. set in the coulie. lHe went down to see a If It was all right, and probably found it all wrong. The people on tide bank, ]finding that he did not come up at the i proper time, endeavored to raise the r mseine. It was some time before they so could do it, and when they suoceeded, rt he was found in the sack of the seine dead. Three colored justices in Assump i tion parish are likely to come to grief. SThey are accused, by complainants of the same comolexion, with extortion In otofgle and other money-making Pro e pnsithes. Last week the colored jus tice in the Tenth Ward of Assumption, oh attempted to arrest a refraoti*y mal content; vi et armens. More effectually w to vindioate the majesty of the law, his Honor armed himself with a gun and proceeded to enforce the law in propr.i or persona. The offender however, re th iasted, and disarmed the belligerent justice, Here the tables became corn ,. pletely turned, and the Irate accused so smashed the gun captured from the so minister of the law into flinders over to the head of the said legal minister.

They account for the defilciency by the extension of the Texas Paoltic to Fort Worth. A largo number of shells are gather. od on the coast near Galveston, and readily sold at ten cents each. The business of their collection and ralo is becoming an imoortant one. The shells are shipped to New York. The Sherman Regli.ter is informed that the Chioago, Burlington and Quiney road has purchased the Missouri, Kan sas and Texas road and will take con trol of that road in a few days. The tOelster" has no reason to doubt the in formation. The change in ownership will only hasten the extension to this point by lease or otherwise, as contem plated by the parties from whose hands the road has now passed. It is highly probablo that official information of the changes now being made will be receiv ed in a few days. The extension of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas road to Austin is most desirable and has been long contemplated by the former own ers of the road. U . . GRANT. He is Golng "West, Younwg lan," and then to Europe. (Special to Cinoinnati Commerolal.] t WASHINGTON, March, 18.--Ex-Presl dent Giant, accompanied by Mrs. 3 Grant, will leave Washington during the present week on a brief visit to the West, with a view to arranging his pri x vate business preparatory to his depar s ture for Europe, and to occupy the time between this and the month of May, 1 during which month the ex-President 1 will sail. His youngest son, Jesse, now at college, is hastening his studies so I that be may accompany his parents, f and it is for this purpose that they have delayed their departure. The ex-Presi dent's party will consist of Mrs. Grant and her youngest son. In speak ing on the subject of his contem plated virit the ex-President said that he bas no plans; that he will be absent at least two years, provided he does not get home-sick before the expiration of that time in which case he will return sooner. He said that he had no prefer . ences as to countries, and had no doubt but that he would enjoy the visit. He 1 thought, however, that he would spend much of his time in London, as the 1 English people were more like our own. It is the desire of the ex-President to f travel the same as any other citizen of the United States. It was stated of the visit of President Pierce to Europe, after his term of office, that he was much em barrassed by attentions of the authori ties. Heat last found refuge in a seclud ed village. Here he enjoyed himself un disturbed for about three days, when his once exalted rank at home was dis covered. No sooner was this the fact than the people turned out en masse and gave him so warm a welcome that he was again forced upon his travels. SEx-President Grant, in speaking of his retirement from public life, said that he now knew what it was to be a sovereign ; that he greatly enjoyed his relief from the cares and responsibilities of govern ing forty millions of sovereigns.

Dear Democrat--Leaving the satus quo to its fate and Packard to his dismal confines within his one acre of Ieturn inag oard territory, I seated myself within one of the uluurious six wheeled truck ooaches of the New Orleans and Mobile ltailroad, on the it Inst. and run der the obliging safeguard of Mr. M. M . Hubbell, conductor, passed quietly along the crowded levee and reaching the lty limits, dashed away for Mobile. The many inviting fishin and hunting grounds were passed with a sigh of re gret, and a quiclok rush of fifty-two miles on a light and "hasty plate of soup" dinner, brought the writer to Bay St. Louis, where we were informed a new caterer of known taste and enterprise would furnish the hun gry with a good supper. At a fair cal culation, not less than forty hungry mortals precipitated themselves into the supper-room and ranged themselves at the neat tables pre pared-with clean linen, orjokery, etc,--but no food. toon, however, some light and hot bisouit, sweet butter and fragrant coffee en gaged the attention of all, and a gon eral attack along the whole line shortly ended in full ratiety Ito the guests. But to the astonishirnent of all, the host posi tively declined to accept a ntoklii for compensation from any one. Thie non duct on the part ofr a railroad r.sta,.r rattar was justly regarlde as dangler ous in the extrein. We began to think of the groat, PYackard gunpowder plot, which was exposed in such a masterly manner by the Nlcholls police it fTow days since. We lookod around In the hope that one of those men of dlnt0 tive genius might be on the train, in which event I siouldoi h!Iave xp.let. our host wol Ihla beeoon tRabbed at, once on simpli(ion of poisoning.

I will guarantee he will rejoice tfle h Iarts of the wayfarers when his kitchen is In order.

The trip from Mobile to Montgomery is a great imrprovement on the old management. The road boll is greatly Improved, and the cars are elegant and oomfortable, while the olll cers of the road are mnost polite and at tentive to the wants of aill passengers. From Montgomery, forty miles over tthe Western Iailroad bring us to Chiehaw Station. where a diminu tive train on the narrow gauge railroad completes the distance nearly six miles-to Tuskegee. Tills road Is thirty-six Inches gauge, and the most whimsical looking littlie engine and train of cars carries one over the smallset of " T ' rails in gtood time and comfortable style. I am told that four gentlemen of this city hlilt, own and control this inlilture railroal(, and besiles the passenger and bataggago car, as high as forty bales cotton are carried at one trip.-ten hales to oatch freight car. With the travel tlhtt the li rlo :.hols, healthy climate and VAI,tnJAgmt MINERAIS , rI'IlNat attract to Ihlis pleasant city, together with t,he p)roducts of a rich back coun try, it will not be suprising, that with good management this little road has paid large dividends to the stockholders. The land hereabouts is broken and a growth of pine and black jack yields no great attractions of scenery, yet the pure air, aromatic with the pines, Is delightful. TIIE lCHlOO)l, OF TI'UNKEI~ EIR, have been long known and appreciated. Before the war there wore two tirst. closs academies for young ladies and one for boys, numbering in all over live hundred pupils. Quite recently one of the female schools and Mr. Park's high school for boys were entirely destroyed by fire; the first fully insured, the lat ter not insured at all. The remaining female school is under the patronage of the Methodist Church and the charge of President John Massey, A. M., who is very highly spoken of and has now about ninety pupils. Professor Mas sey was formerly from Mobile, and is a gentleman of high culture, and under the vigilant charge of himself, his estimable and accomplished lady and assistants, this female college is flourishing. Prof. Park was compelled to build a temporary structure, where he now, with the assistance of Prof. 8. H. Bartlett, instructs some seventy five pupils. Prof. Park was the sole owner of the large and completely equipped school building that was re cently burned, and the loss was a severe one fora private enterprise. But last stammer, being a delegate to the Cen tennial Educational Convention at Philadelphia, the Professor selected a plan for a new and enlarged building, with all modern improvements and apparatus, and will shortly com mence its construction. Mr. Park has taught here for over a qdarter of a century, with constantly in creasing support and satisfaction on the part of his patrons. He is a most courteous and accomplished gentleman and thorough educator. I noticed among the scholars who were delivering recitations at his school Saturday, the sons of three members of Congress and other distinguished men of this State. It is the most thorough school and at the same time the most congenial atmosphere for boys and the most economical for parents, that has come under my observation for a long time. We need more such in the South. Tus kegee has now about 2000 population. It has been the residence of most attrac tive, hospitable and cultivated people, and before the war the centre of a great deal of wealth and enterprise, much of which still remains. Au recoir. J.
