Parties interested will do well to read
the notice of the Collector of Internal
Revenue, published in another column.
Onr approaching April term of the
District Court promises to be largely
attended, and to be very interesting.
A heavy shower last Sunday night
seriously, retarded gardening and plant
ing, already too long delayed t>y pre
vious rains.
Easter Sunday services at the Catho
lic church here attracted an immense
audience. The church was crowded.
Rev. Father Gnny officiated.
The orange blossoms don't pan out,
well this spring, but a short crop will
he all the better for the trees. Too
much bearing is injurious to any fruit
tree.
ttie
The fishing season 1ms fairly begun
though the trout don't "strike" yet
They are caught, however, with live
bait. Why don't some of onr towns
people unite in the purchase of a large
ieine, for use in the lake ?
The expected quarterly meeting of
the M. E. Church South, at this pla
was not held last Saturday, as ap
pointed, and has been re-fixed for the
17th and 18th instant. In anticipation
of the meeting last Saturday, there was
quite a large attendance of the minis
ters and members of the church, and
Kev. Mr. Pilley preached to an attentive
congregation one of the most able and
effective discourses wo have ever heard
here.
At an informal meeting of some of
our town resident® last Monday night
it was resolved that g public meeting be
held at the Court House next Saturday
night, (April 3d), at early candle light
for the purpose of considering tlie pro
piiety of organizing a private school in
Lake Charles, and of building a new
school ho ise for that purpose. We
hope that the meeting will be,, fully
attended.
Wo will publish next week an inter
esting article on Cameron parish, from
our esteemed correspondent, * ' Read
It is just such publications which tend
to increase the population and pros
pority of any sec tiou of country ; and
we hope that some intelligent corro
spondent, thoroughly acquainted with
the subject, will favor us with similar
contributions respecting the geography
and resources of Calcasieu,
