Bastrop can certainly boast of two very superior barbers. One of them is rather dark and the other rattier darker. They seem to be t-i'v congenial. One is a little deaî jut very fond of whiskey and a keen razor, which he handles very dextrously. The other is an ex pounder of the gospel, as under stood by the Baptist sect, and also has no objection to a leetle sweet ened toddy. The biblical membet of the firm owns a revolving brush mich he manipulates • with a self satisfactory dexterity that is truly refreshing to the craniums of his customers.

We politely informed him that we were manufacturing "matter" for the Clarion, and asked him if he was not a subscriber to the paper. He said he was not, but that he bor rowed his brother's paper occasion ally, but had never seen a Copy that in any way rrsembled the sinuous hyeroglyphics that marked the in offensive sheet on our table.

They have the latest styles and beautiful goods and all sizes. They have also made a speciality of boots and shoes, bought at one of the largest factories in Boston, and in the selection of which . the ladies were not forgotten. Indeed, it is doubtful whether any house in Bastrop ever had a.larger or better stock of ladies shoes. Dr. C. G.

The Bastrop Literary Society will give a public debate next Tues day evening. As the debaters are all silver-tongue orators, the au dience may anticipate a splendid entertainment.
