Every man in town, except the right one, has asked us if we re ferred to him in our last issue when we said that some one 'took thirty seven drinks. When the real man comes we'll let him know. If the C larion and Monroe Bul letin both get after that railroad, people had as well go and buy their through tickets to the city. Bead what the Bulletin says, and recol lect what the Clarion has said Whose busted again ? Why, Peterkin, the great cheap cash man has busted the extortionate prias in Bastrop. Business in Bastrop is not as good as we would like to see. The facilities for transportation have been so bad, however, this winter that we are not surprised at the dull trade.

Heller & Turner selb heavy himble-skein wagons for $65, Bastrop Merchants in a ttage. ? the We get off into a secluded, though audible, spot occasionally, aod listen *t the merchants of this town curse the steamboats that, once iu a while, work theii way to the Point. Now we are not an advocate of profanity in any form. We were taught in early life that men of vulgar and vicious habits are the only men that indulge in profane language. Hence, when we hear a man showering forth a volley of cuss words," we either conclude that he is a bad man, or a very badly aggravated man Our merchants have been aggravated and dis appointed, until, moral as they are, foibearance has ceased to be a virtue, und io a fit of insup portable desperation, they have let loose their caged ire in oue long flood of spiteful, revengeful oaths upon the exorbitant Shy locks that compose the Ouachita Transportation Company, and the suclcers that work for that company in our Bayou. The eyes of Bastrop merchants are beginning to fly open—the scales failing off. The bloated steam boat is "gouging" a Teeth too deep. Bastrop is now regarded by river men as a ''bird in the hand." They are busy setting snares for the "bird iu the bush," Consequently, the mer chants of our town are "1« ft alone" until no one eise can be snared. In one senße of the word, we are glad that Bastrop is thuis imposed upon. We take pleasure in beariug her mer chants swear, and rage, and fame. Although some of them— the German element especially curse very awkwardly, we like to hear it. If such a state of affairs continues—and we have no doubt it will—the prospect for a rail road will begin to loom up in the not distant tuture, and then our town will be rewarded amply for all of the annoyance and awk ward cursing to which she has been subjected. These are our sentiments, and we urge the Bastrop merchants to continue to rage. Its healthy. It will do the town good. Swear on, gen tlemen. are jects So the lost ing New Goods ! Low Prices!
