Dan Rice's Great Show and
Trained Animal Exhibition is to
- exhibit at Colfax on Wednesday,
'sts December 19. The press speaks in
or most favorable terms of this show,
the nd informs us through the vaeious
exchanges that Dan Rice has now
with him a most brilliant combina
tion of remarkable trick horses and
trained animals, together with a
on fine company composed of the
champions of the arenic world.
Dan Rice positively announces to
en appear in the ring himself, as the
ad "old times" clown; and this latter i
feature alone ought to be werth the 1
e price of admission. Old Dan," a
ye he is familiarly called, will also ex
hibit the celebrated old blind
horse, "Excelsior," who is now 27 s
s- years old, and whose marvelous
on sagacity has astonished foi many
of years the entire universe. This is ,
ct undoubtedly one of the finest cir
ot cuses in point of real merit that has C
ever been projected, and it is evi
rt dlent that no expense has been e
to spared tosnake it one of the grand- s
st. est entertainments otffered to the e
,le public. The price of admission is
ull as usual; children at half pb ice; so
b- let us all turn out next Wednesday f,
p, and give "Old" Colonel Dan Rice a v
ks rousing big reception. tl
a Gov. Nicholls was visited at the
executive office by Representa
in tve Spiller, of the parish of Liv- g
ulgston, who came to the city in r'
s the interest of those residents of P
f- his parish who depend for a living
: out logs, wood, cutting shingles, I
a etc., enil rafting. i.
This class of people, Mr. Spiller
n says, are almost in a destitute con- ti
r- dlition, from the fact that the Uni- n
to ted States authorities some time
is ago seized all of their logs,shingles li
and wood, aund further, even pre- t
i ventedl thena from cutting or ship
r+ ping to this market from the Asite
river any wood or shingles, even
though they lived anol worked in
where they hail lived all their lives `
pand where their ancestors had lived.
never once 'freawiung, nor is it vet
Sset tle. l,tlhat the land belongs to the
y United States government.
a The seizire, of the logs, shingles
San woodil has reduced them to
such an extremity that Mr. Spiller
says they have now but a scanty
h supply of food left, and none of
it them are in a position to relieve
a themselves, consequently. Iurales.i
their propiert is released by tie
United States authorities, they w11il o
L be compelled to seek bread and
, meat here in the city.
The result of the confuertnce was
that Mr. Spiller was auth 'rizis be
Mr. Wurzbiurger to say upon has
return that the wool ndtlnd sltingH '
l could be shipped to this mark' t
without further det'nti'ni on this
part of the demh ntry United Staotes
t marhal or his keepers.
In a conversation with a Deano
crat reporter, subsequientlv. Mir.
-iller stated that the laird fro' u in
which this i tuber is cut beloi' to I .lu
fthe succession of the old Hltunan
estate or claim andi not to tl' Ieiii
ted States governmun't. He staied j
also that he had presented a peti- 1
I Lion to the Governor giving all the Z
facts, and that will doubtless be (
forwarded to the Secretarv of th i
Interior who has not pet, it ter'm,
passed upon the question of the'
ownership of the land.-- tN. i

The repeated rumors so freqa. et
ly circulated by tue press ot late
has directed public asttention to the
probabilities of a war between this
country and Mexico, and as New
Orleans is directly interested i tli he
subject anything that may throw
light upon it is welcome. w Fle
For recent drispaetches from u
both the Rio Grande and Mcxico it Ter
was shown that the temper of the. Air
press there was anything but kield- e
ly towards the 'united States, aind P
that the papers were endauuvring .
if possible to educate the peofpe uh 1wr
to a franzy strong enough to induce
them to call for warat once. These pI
efforts thus far have failel, howrv- ulai
er, but what with the distraction S'"
produced by Gen. Alvarez' proneu- A L

Sonora and Sinaloa will probably -
lead off the people's mind from the j ',ET
Rio Grande trouble for aorrle, at
least Our war department hav I
seen Mh, howers, to .trengthen thu
forces on that river, and sin uom
panies of the Fourth Cavalry, now
in Northern Texas, have been or
id dered to the border with one regi
to ment fromn Minnesota.
, A reporter of the Democrat call
an ed upon Gen. Angur for the pur
pose of learning his views on the
W, subject. The general stated that,
us so far as he knew, there was no
w cause for apprehending any trouble
Swith Mexico-at present. The addi
Stiona roope sent to the border
were oiley in numbers those he had
a while in command there and which
'e had been subsequently withdrawn.
d. There was no augmentation of
troops at present. He died not
to think the troopa ordered to Texas
le would pass through New Orleans,
er as anore rapid transportation could
e be nbtained by way of St. Louis
and the railroads ranning down
into that State from Missouri. New
- Orleans would, in case of a war,
d undoubtedly be a base or depot of
17 supplies simply.
i At the Mexican Consul's there
was no apprehension of trouble,and
y it was not considered that the rn
i more afloat amounted to anything.
r- There is much talk among our
Scoummencrcial men as to the chances
of war, but as the data upon which
to fortl opinions is so meagre, few
n expressed a positive idea on the!
y- subject. If it should come, howev
,e er, this cit. would become a veryn
d important military point, as it wasn
in 4e--47-.48, when we tackled Mex
o ico efore. It would be the depota
M for supplies, the probable rendez
a vous for troops, and the prime base
