In our issue of the 27th of Feb rnary we stated that Mr. II. D. Vaughan had been to the city, se cured a boat, and when he got back as far as Trenton, had "sold out from stem to stern," to Capt. Cry or. When making this statement ~ we were entirely confident of its correctness, although we had not conversed with Mr. Vaughan at all upon the subject. As the follow ing card will show, we were misin formed, and all we said about Mr. Vaughan was wholly incorrect. W e cheerfully publish the card, and in this connection will state to the friends of our esteemed townsman that we never intended to place him in the light of one who had been "bought off" the bayou. Our impression was that Mr. Vaughan had bought and sold a boat, ou which he made big money, and our impression is yet that we would have done the same thing. Mr. Vaughan was deceived by the men with whom ne contracted. Read this card: This is to certify that we did agree with II. D. Vaughan to let him run the Ollie B. up Bayou Bartholomew, but when we got to Trenton circumstances were such that we thought it best for us to go up Bayou DrBone. Therefore it was not his fault, but ours. T. C. BUTLER, Manager for owners. Mr M. Levy showed us last Tuesday the designs of two hand some brick buildings, which he will have erected on his lots North of the Court House.

The other building will be erected on the lot lately occupied by "Sam's house." Botli designs shown us by Mr. Levy display ex quisite taste, and will be a decided ornament to our little city.

WOLFF & BRO., Successors to Wolff & Silbernagel. At the Court House Tuesday night the Bastrop Literary Society debated the profoundly interesting question, "Which exerts the greater influence over man, woman or money ?'

Mr. Leon Sugar, on the negative, made a zealous and a highly instructive speech, which "knocked the black out" of everything that could be produced by the affirmative. Mr. Sugar is a very well-informed youth and we predict for liim a brilliant and a successful career.

The Monroe Bar met in that city last Saturday and passed a set of resolutions deploring the death and eulogizing the life of our late highly esteemed fellow-citizen, Judge S. G. Parsons.
