He proposes that tenor fifteen enlist from each of the parishes 1 and this will answer.

See advertisement elsewhere of Maps for sale. Thuse war times a map is a groat requisite. Miss Lula Mackie, as will be seen by reference to her advertisement, is giving instruction in the Fine Arts, without a knowledge of -which no lady's education is complete. Scott's Geerap&y.-On the large ma which Gen. Scott is continually studying are many points of interest, but the veteran's attention is partic ulary directed to Davis' Straits. New York Herald 1,7th July. Wonder if the old veteran didn't find Davis' Sound on the 21st ulto.? Speaking of the prospects of our recognition, Ion, the Washington cor respondent of the Baltimore Sun, who is a thorough Englishman by birth, association and feeling, thus writes: The London Times has arrived at the conclusion that the war must ter minate in Southern independence.- That independence may not, even if it exists de facto terminate the war. It is clear that the Times will advo cate recognition by England, at an early day. Advices received at Ha vana from Europe state thatEuropean Government will probably soon re cognize the Confederates.. fW We learn from a prviate let ter from New Orlewas, that a Vig ilance Committee has been formed in that city, whose object is pa rticularly to prevent remittaces to the North, and to punish treason sammarily. NW is tkw time f ouxr citisens to be making up their ildands as to the me roper persons to repi seut them for nmf the first time as a people of a new St Confederacy. Let the choice be that fai of known States rights men, who Yc are fully capable and willing to repre sent us in the legislative halls as we ty deserve to be. We want men to tl advance the prosperity of this section ce of Louisiana, in the way of internal be improvements, and to leave no stone lei unturned to accomplish this end.-- P Men who will dare maintain their rights co if assailed; they must be determined ti( and unflinching, and be at their post in th business hours to take an active part in the proceedings of the body, and not be mummies. Let us endeavor in to elect the menwho have the interest wi of Caddoparish foremost in their minds nc and the prosperity of the city of ar Shreveport at heart. nt In the columns of our paper under th the proper head, will be found the names of several of our prominent tl4 citizens, who desire representing us to in the next Legislature. These gen- S tleman are well known to every voter q who has resided in this Parish for tl any length of time, and therefore o any eulogy from ourselves would be out of place, however, we will say P that any of them will make a good ep and faithful representative, though we tl are utterly ignorant as regards their ol political feeling. If they belong to L the Jeffersonian school we are with ol them. I Let us to Business. As often as we have alluded to the Ii a propriety of home manufacture we t have heard of some grand project on tl s foot, and in a few days we hear no c - more of independence. Is this the V f way that we contemplate being rid of a f foreign manufacture ? Is this the s r way we build our new Confederacy ? E' s We are but to fearful it is. Let the " blood of shame tinge your countenan n ces, and hide your faces, oh, ye boast- a ful people. Why are we such lag- c gards about building up in our midst f -, manufactories, the main prop of .very t Lt country in the world. The lack of means and talent is not the drawback. 1 In our humble opinion it is this, and f we are sorry to own it, the Southern a people, unlike the Northern, lr,.k on all attempts to establish anything among themselves as extra hazardoeus and therefore have no confidence in each other. Heretofore, (Cnd mark 1 S us it will be the same again) what e ever was manufactured in the South was pronounced inferior, and the pre- 1 re ference given to the Northern make. [y though there would actually be no it, difference. The establishment of a C literary paper has been ventured time and again in the South, but with no 't success. Manufacteries innumerable ).? have from time to been attempted, but for want of proper patronage had to ur cease operations, making bankrupts r of the patriotic persons engaged in bo them. In the course of our travels in h, the Southern country, we have often : been saddened to see the ruins of at some once great undertaking. The r- New Orleans people talk of establish if ing a paper iill, why did theynot keep ar. the one in operation which they once o- had ? the crumbling runlins are still an visible. an Southerners to your duty! Let Sthere be mannfactories erected, and do not permit them to cease opera tions for want of patronage, and the t- way to do this, is to extend all your g- orders only to home institutions. ly The Shreveport Rebels,- Capt. H. lu, Hansicker, have joined the 11th Be' giment, and wili proceed to Virginia, ý'L tr-he d people Rich mondh oudirete upon the man ner in which the Lincoln Govern- ci melt is treating its "prisoners of no State." Their condition is thus so] faithfully depicted by a candid New co York journal: We learn, upon undoubted authori- bha ty, that no person is allowed to com-! in municate with what may be called the prisoners of State," now incar- sk cerated at Fort Lafayette, in our har- ha bor. No visitor cat see them; no da letter can reach them; they are not permitted to communicate with their sk friends, or to have an interview with 10 counsel ; and, for all purposes of par ticipation with the world outside is their prison walls, they are dead and fo buried, while living. Citizens of fo New York, this is the condition of a" men who were like you, born free- ta men, and who now are incarcerated up within sight of the Battery ! It is pi not of Austria, or of Naples, that we tf are speaking; these are not victims of the Spanish Inquisition or priso- d1 ners of the dungeons of Spielberg, but. s, the month of August, 1861. Old personal friends of these gen- p1 tlemen, who had known them in Bal- S( timore, atnd who had been requested cl to act as their counsel, proceeded on Saturday to Fort Lafayette and re- ri quested permission fi'om Col. 3Burk- ti the same officer whose re.fusal to i obey Judge kBetts caused the latter hh hastily to abdicate power and declare i his Court unable to enforce its own process-to allow them to see the n. prisoners. The capacity in which they came was clearly stated. The fi officer- perhaps we si(,uld say s the jailor-was courteous, but firm. o His idea of military duty was strict n obedience- lie replied that he was not authorized to allow any petrston, atever to see the prisoner. W\Vith _ tnis information the friends of those to who are there incarcerated were oh liged to depart. The Constitution of the Lnited e St:tte s, beforo it was "suspended" by the arbitrary authority of Mfr. Lin- N 3 coln and his military satraps, pro vided: "In all criminal prosecutions the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by aui im Spartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have be ,u committed, which ldistrict shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed oft the nature and cause of the accusation ; to be con t fronted with the witness againstt imn; to have compulsory process for oL - tamining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense."

Those best in formed say the Southerners are in force witkin a few miles of the river. and are gathering means of transpor tation. They have large encamnp ments this side of Fairfax, but it is pr:bable that the bulk of the army is further up the Poltomac. The navy department has ad.vices that Commodore Porter is in irons for secession sympathy. Welles, Secretary of the navy, ex presses himself in, favor of closing the Southern ports immediately by pro clamat ion. T'he. Southern batteries down the river are assuming formidable propor tions, and if the Southerners succeed in closing the Potomac, it will be hard to prevent their crossing into Maryland.
