Harrod, of the Mississippi River Commission, to the Hon. J. Floyd King, M. 0., is of Rreat import ance to the people of this section Gen. King has introduced a bill in Cougress for the appropriation of lands required to carry out the report" of the Rivor Commis sion, and which will meet the requirements suggested: New Ohleans , April 12, '80. Gen'. J. Floyd King, M. C.: Dear Sir—Iu relation to the subject of our recent conversa tion, I would state that all the overflow waters now in Louis iana comes through the State of Arkansas. The river front of that State is practically unpro tected from 'Possum Fork down to the Louisiana line. Of course the State of Louisiana can take no Steps to give protection against dangers from without her borders, except under treaty, which must be authorized by Congress; An effort to establish such a treaty with the State of Arkansas, in our Legislature of 1878, failed. I think the Arkan sas Legislature ratified the prop osition, and I presume Congress would not have objected. The Mississippi River Commission has rf-commnudeJ the recon struction of levees as an auxil iary to o:her means for carrying out the object of tLe bill. This work closing the break in the levees will doubtless be carried out should Congress adopt the views urged in the report of the Commission. Very Respectfully, B. M. HABROD. The romantic marriage of a wealthy young lady of San Fran cisco to a poor but respectable and intelligent young man em ployed as a street car conductor, recently created a stir in social circles. The affair has had a pleasant ending, however, the lady 's family very sensibly taking her husband affectionately into the family, when it was found that his only social shortcoming was poverty. Following this comes the elopement and mar riage of the only daughter of an Oakland millionaire with a pov eity-stricken, but well-educated, intelligent, temperate young mau who was in her father's employ. The young couple waited some time for the repentance of the father, who in his indignation promptly disinherited his laugh ter; but not repenting, the latter abauiloned her husband to re turn to the paternal roof. Wc are glad to chronicle the fact that the Department nas es tablished three new Postal Routes in our county. One from Hamburg to Monti cello via Duncan's Mill and Gotham's school house. One from Hamburg to Li id Grove, La., by most direct route. Oue from Hamburg to More house Point by way of Peters burg and White's store.—[Ham burg Times. His friends in Y rginia entreat him to remain, but Gen. Joseph E Johnson persists in his de termination n<»t to seek re-elec tion to Congress. those LiUla kindnesses from 'found ns should be reciprocated and returned in the same kindly spirit. JOTTINGS FROM OAK RIDGE. Editor Clarion.—I wiil drop you a line this evening for to morrow's mail. Nothing of much note has occurred since my last sketch. The crops ara growing finely. Judging from the dull ness of trade now, hands are working well. Oak Ridge is hardly clearing expenses this pretty Weather. Some days no body comes to town—all for the better. We would hate to see more loafers in town than al ready live in it. Well, taking things altogether, our little in land village, will some day be a little town. We now have seven dry goods and provision stores, 2 saloons, 3 blacksmith and wood shops, three churches, a Masonic Hail (but we want a better one-), two female schools in aud near town—one taught by Mrs. Mollie Beauehamp ; the other, by Miss Jenuie Dosson — both good teachers. Wo have a good Magistrate aud Constable, and I may add, law and order. Speaking of the churches, we had a most excellent sermon at the Methodist Church* last Sun day by that learned divine, Dr. Trippelt, from the words, "What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and loose his own sous?" The subject was Well handled and beautifully illus trated. The whole audience were all attention, each trying to catch every word, but were now and then hindered by the sudden outburst of sume little one, whose lungs evidently were never ef fected by disease. Speaking of our town, we have 4 Doctors aud lots and cords of drugs in nearly every business house, but sometime we wonder how the Doctors live. We fre quently see them doing nothing and apparently like the rest of us, too lazy to read a newspaper. Then again, we see them all rid ing around. Oar town is not yet complete. We want a good silver smith, gnn smith, aud boot and shoe maker. J. WM. DaVIS. Oak Ridge, La., May 14, 1880. LEGAL WIT. In Lynchburg, Va., a distin guished member of the Bar, ap pealing to the Court for the dis charge of his client, wound up with the statement that, if the court sent him on further trial, a stain would be left on his char acter which could not be washed off by all the waters of *the blue ocean, and all the soap which cuuld be manufactured from the ''ponderous carcass of the Com monwealth's Attorney." To this the ponderous attorney replied that, while he deemed it foreign to the case at the Bar, he de sired to advise the Court, if they thought it advisable to boil his body into soap, they shoald look to the opposite counsel for the concentrated lie out of which to make it." Webster and Claiborne par ishes have the honor of possess ing the biggest liars that we have ever heard of. That is if the Guardian and Tribune tell the iruth. Two negro men disagreed abou t a woman in Richland par ish the other day, and one shot the other in the leg with Rquirrel 'shot. THEN. O. TIMESON GEN. KING. The bill creating the Northern judicial district of Louisiana has unanimously passed the Federal house of representatives. There is, therefore, a reasonable cer tainty that the bill will soon be come a law. This is good news for the people of the northern portion of this State, because it will save them the great incon venience and expense involved in haying all causes in Federal courts tried in this city. More over, the establishment of an other Federal court will vastly lighten the present press of busi ness, which is a severe bur den to the mo.st industrious judge. The passage of the bill by the house of representatives is due to the t active eïertiohs of Hon. J. Floyd King. Mr. King has, during his entire term of ser vice, shown^are devotion to the interests 0f™is constituents, and he has achieved an enviable rep utation for ability in discussing the larger affairs of the nation. His actiou in the present case will, doubtless, add to his popu larity throughout the State. lu a suburban cemetery of War saw were interred a few weeks ago, the remains of a venerable Pole, whose claim to be the old est inhabitant of that city had been undisputed for several years previous to his demise. This patriarch had completed his 118th year when he was sum moned to his fathers; and, as during his abnormally protracted existence he had suffered no family bereavements, except that which robbed him of his wifoj eighty-five years ago, his body was followed to the grave by such a procession of mourning descendent« as, at least witii re spect to its numbers, has proba bly gnever attained the ob sequies of a defunct Christian. No fewer than 235 of his chil dren and children's children, even unto the fourth generation, streamed iuto the churchyard to bid a last adieu to their progeni tor. The death of a person who had many grandchildren when the battle of Waterloo was fought and whose early personal memo ries included such historical fig ures as Maria Theresa and Fred erick the Great» is a noteworthy circumstance. We must consult the gentlest manner and softest reason of ac^-. dress in our admoni^uent; our advice must not fall like a violent storm, bearing down aud making those to droop whom it is meant to cherish and refresh. It must descend as the dew upon the ten der herb, or like melting flakes of suow—the softer it falls the lon ger it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind. No language can express the power, beauty, heroism and maj esty of the mother's , love. It shrinks not when men cower, and grows stronger wheu man faints, ana over the wastes of worldly fortune sends the radiance of itp quenchless fidelity lïko a star iu heaven. Major T. R. Calvin, of Lincoln, died at his home in that parish a few days ago. He was one of Lincoln's best citizens. The stock on the mail route between Minden and Vienna ia said to be iu au awful condition.
