Belle Boyd, the famous Confederate spy, gave two entertainments here dur ing the past week. Owiug to the in clement weather, and as a con sequence the very small audience last Friday night, the entertaiu uieut was repealed Monday night to a larger house. The entertainments were well worth the price of admission. Some of the ex-spy's adventures were recount ed iu a graphic and vivid way, and her entire narrative was well received. A number of veterans iu the county once kuew Belle Boyd, fatuous during the war for her daring deeds, since made more famous by history and fiction. Hon. E. S.

Compress Talk Again. The superintendent and general freight agent of the Yazoo and Mississippi Val ley railroad were in town one day last week and seemed willing, even anxious, to talk compress to our business' men, The railroad officials have heretofore been backward iu this respect. The fact that so much cotton has been going by way of the Gulf for shipment has doubtless been a moving influence upon the railroad, which has lost thousands of dollars in freight in this way. Messrs. J. Bernbeiiner and G. W. Wheeless talked over the matter with the officials at the latter's invitation. The railroad men pledged themselves, in case a suf ficient response could be gotten here to subscription to stock to get the com press, to use their influence towards get ting all the cotton possible brought her« from the south of Port Gibson and from the country tapped by the Little J. ; also to give satisiactory freight rates 00 same. With a viety ^0 the consumma tion of the scheme, the railroad has al ready made a survey 0/ its depot grounds. Tt is to be hoped our business men will have a compress here by the begin ning of another cotton s«asop. It would bring thousands of bales more of cotton Port Gibson annually, which would leave more money in all lines of tradç and in the county at lar^e , A Household Treasure. and the A.
