We receive a great many letters of inquiry About our pariah, which we have no time to answer iu detail, and which would lie folly answered by the desired publication We earnestly hope that aotnu one or more of our reader«, in each section of our pariah, will give us a written de scription of the section in which he lives. For example, from spe cial descriptions of the geography, •oil, and productions of Hickory Flat, Lsc&sine, Mermentau, Vin cent's Settlement, Big Woods, Sa bins river, Sugar Town and Barnes' Creek, we could give a of of is arc We tbe by the for trial [N, general description of the parish, which would be equally interesting and useful. We want facts, not fancies. Who will give us the first contribution ? The N. O. Bulletin of the 21st inst,, iu a complimentary notice of our late re)>ort of the census of Calcasieu, says, "we think it our duty to warn Lake Charles against increasing such expenses for elec tion purposes, as is shown by the appropriation passed through its board." A. private letter from the Bulletin office informs us that the above warning was intended as a joke and referred to an appropriation of nine dollars by our Town Coun cil to defray the expenses of our late election of a Mayor and Aider men. If the Bulletin had stated this fact in its above warning, the latter would not have been taken as serions abroad. A9 it is we hope the Bulletin will do Lake Charles the favor to explain its joke. We give our thanks to Louis Leveque, Esq., for the following iuformation in regard to the Sul phur Mines of this parish : A cable dispatch was received from Lambert, aine, of Paris, con tractor with the Calcasien Sulphur Miniug Co., dated the 20th of Joue, that the engineers and work men had organized and were about to leavo for Calcasieu. The Calcasieu Sulphur Mining Co., expect them now from day to day- This is au euterprise of gen eral interest, and one which we wish success. Self-Government ot the Negro Ha ce. A great many years ago, the African Colonization Society wus founded. Its object was to induce emigration to Liberia, where, un der a government of their own choice, the negro could settle for himself the problem of his ability for self-government. Liberia is in West Africa, extending nearlj' six himdred miles along the coast. The territory included in the limits of the new colored Republic was acquired by purchase from the na tive proprietors. The interior boundaries of the purchased tracts are about forty miles from the const. The new Republic was in augurated under favorable aus pices. The soil was good, and as there was very little swamp or worthless land, tho climate was healthy, and generally like that common near the Equator. The mercury seldom rises ubove 90 de giees, and never falls below 60 de grees. Tropical products of oourse are easy of production, and those of our latitude do very well. Monrovia, the Capital and larg est town, which has about 13,000 iuhabitants, is a seaport. The friends of the negro, and those who believed in his ability to govern himself, were greatly interested in this scheme. Mr. Clay in pgrticu lar, was particularly prominent in assisting to udvance the interests of this young colored repnblic. We have before us the report of the American Foreign Missionary Society upon their work in Libe The accounts of some re ns. turned missionaries are of s most discouragiug nature- They say that the people are falling back into s state of barbarism. Religion and education make no progress, private morality and in particular chastity, is not regarded by the people, and that the government little better than a farce. These statements coming not from political sources, but from •rnineot Christian oiergymen, we arc • compelled to accept aa true. We have thought the causes of the demoralization so prevalent among tbe great mass of Southern ne groes, attributable to their asso ciations with bad whites. But this could not be true of Liberia. The whole is managed aud conducted blacks, and it seems to us that capacity of the colored race self-government has had a fair trial and been Spund wanting. O Times. T 26, the at TV that filed this bis Range ties parish of not the 21st of of our the its we its The Ground for Hope. We see, from the last issue of the Fredericksburg Herald, that the democracy of Virginia are forming a great State society to encourage emigration from Europe aud our own States of white men of skill, industry, and enterprise into the Old Dominion. Thin is a very admirable plan. It will bring up the character of this old State, and, above all, it will drive out the negro, and once more hand over the political power of Virginia to the white race. It is wise in itself. It proves that the people fully un derstand their present needs. It shows that large statesmanship and sound principles of political economy have j et their advocates. General Fitzhngh Lee is the presidlht of this society, and his great popularity and sound, prac tical opinions, and his association with tho State of Virginia, we hope w v ill make the objects of this so ciety a great success.—[Common wealth. It would not be the least of the wonders of our coming Centennial celebration if France and Eugland should shake bands iu Philadel phia. The French Assembly has voted the sum of 600,000 francs to enable French exhibitors to make a creditable showing of their skill —and there is serious talk of in viting the Queen of Great Britain to grace the occasion by her pres ence. Stranger things than these have happened. We have received with distinguished honors two representatives of royalty-—but neither the Prince of Wales nor the Grand Duke Alexis had the full flavor of sovereignty. Like Pip, they were young gentlemen of great expectations. The visit of a real ruler would be a marked event, and the Queen would receive a royal welcome.— [Exchange.
