In Rhode Island a curious conflict of between the Stete and I authorities has occurred grow out of a seizure of'liquors made by the State constables. There was a large «took of liquors in the store of a man named Bligh, which were seized under the provisions of the Rhode Island liquor law. While tie State officers ware engaged in removing the contraband goods, the United States Marshal made his appearance, claimed that the liquors were in his custody, and forcibly interfered with the seizure A large force of the city police was summoned to aasist the Marshal, and ia the tuaale which ensued, the State constables get off with fifteen bands of firewater, while the Federal Govern ment, represented by the United States Marshal, remained in triumphant pos sesrioa of tbs remainder of the liquors Whether or no the star-spangled banner was mined over that portion of the whisky which was saved from the profane hands of the State oonatabukfll we are unable to say, but it is certain that the squabble has created a good deal of ascitoment in the small but plucky State in which it occurred. Gov, Howard, whose zeal as a member of the Republican party under ordinary circumstance« will hardly be ques tioned, feels very indignant at the alight which has Wen put upon the au thority of Urn State by the minions of the Federal Government, and in a mes sage to the Legislature assumes a tone which, if he was an auti-Adminirimtion Governor of a Southern State, would undoubtedly lead to an immediate visit Phil.

Editor Weekly Ec«o : Id compliance with your late request I undertake to supply you with a few short articles upôn subjects of local in terest to Carteron parish. I can not promise, however, that they will be strictly seriatim. This parish is mainly composed of two lielto of laud, extending, with occa sional interruptions, nearly the full length of the parish from east to west. The northern belt is a portion of the mainland, and lies contiguously to Cal casieu and Vermillion parishes, which bound it on the north, and from whose territory this parish was created. * I am sorry that I am not possessed of more extensive knowledge of the geog raphy of this belt, but as I have visited it outy at those points accessible by the waters of Calcasieu and Momentan rivers, my information must necessarily be somewhat limited, and indefinite. South of tlris belt lies an extensive marsh, some poi tions of which are yet to bo explored, and very much of it is represented us utterly inaccessible, so that it will, in all probability, long re main a mystery. This marsh has a mean width of about twelve miles, per haps more. And south of it lie a long belt, and Berios of belts, which extend from the marsh bpfore spoken of to the Gulf of Mexico, or to tho vast sea marsh, which borders some portions of this Gulf. Its average width is not more, perhaps, than one mile, although in some places it covers an extent of nearly six miles, and is composed of mauy slight elevations, here culled ridges, lying nearly parallel, and di vided in some parts by intervening marshes, in others by valleys, which are covered with water during rainy seasons, but are hard, dry, and covered with luxuriant grass at other times. Various and diverse are the theories advanced by different persons in ac counting for the formation of this belt ; it being evidently of recent form ation,. geologically speaking. But the ideas moat strongly advocated are, 1st. That it u of volcanic origin, and 2d. opposed to the first, that it has been formed by the action of the waters of the Gulf, and for the most part, during storms, when the upheaving* from the *ea are so great- But, however the base of this laud may have originated, I am quite sure that the valuable portions were formed, in a great degree at least, by the depressing system, and that, for those lands of which I speak, the pi in eipai executing agency lias been decom position of vegetable matter, the luxu riance of which is now a matter in tho and knowu only to us through the ory of old «coupants and tradition, au tire substratum, however, ho far as has been yet examined, ia of marina origin.

The following dispatch to the New Orleans Times, says : Mebmentau, La., March 16.—Par ties who have been hunting for money supposed to have been buried by pi rates and smugglers on the Merfnentau river, about the time of the war of 1812, succeeded in finding a box of money, which, upon being opened, was found to contain American coin of as late date as 1861, which leads to the belief that it was money stolen and buried by the ja 3 'hawkers, who were numerous in this vicinity during the War. Tho amountÿtound is not known, but from all that' can be learned it did not ex ceed $4000 or $5000. The finding of this created a groat excitement, and now there are hundreds digging along the banks of the river and bayous in thin vicinity. We have seen nor heard nothing con firming the above statement.
