IJEi'ING appointed Receiver under
.l) ith provisions of the act of the
Uohtfederate States of America, enti
tied "* An Act for the Sequestration
',f the Estates, Property and. Effects
of Alien Enemies, &c.," for the sec
tion of the State comprising the par
ishes of Caddo, De Soto, Sabine,
Bossier, Claiborne and Bienville, and.
for which the Confederate Court holds
sessions at Shreveport. Therefore,
allU parties having business with the
.ffice will confer a favor by commi
nicating their information in writing,
as far as practicable, stating names
of aliens, their domicils, nature of
property, where situated, supposed
valse, and their own residences or "
pila~e of business, that they may be E
called on for further information, as C
ieach case comes up for examination. e
LFear has been expressed that per
epaptory demand will be made for ti
- payments of debts due to aliens, and
summary nmeans used in confiscating
their property to the great detriment C
-f the community. This is a great
mistake. The Receiver will not
willingly tlrow any impediment in I
the way3 of business, but hopes, in
every instance, to secure the rights
,of the Government without the least '
detriment to private interests, and as
much as possible without litigation. e
lst an honorable loyalty be evin- a
ced in assisting the Receiver in es- a
tablishing those rights. Meet him
with an honest intention to do no
wrong, and you may feel full assu
rance that every facility, as urgently I
demanded by the exigencies of the
.times, will be extended in return.
For the information of the public,
I publish the second and third sec
tions of the act:
SSEa(. 2. Be it further enacted,
That it is and shall be the duty of
each and every citizen of the Confed
erate States speedily to give informa
t ion to the oioers charged with the
executions of this law, of any and
.-very lands, tenements and heredita
mients, goods and chattels, rights and
c:'edits, within this Confederacy, and
,ft every right and interest therein
held, owned, possessed or enjoyed by
or for any alien enemy, as aforesaid.
Sae.: i. lie it further enacted,
fThat it shall be the duty of every
-Lttorney, agent, former partner, trus
t..e or other person holding or con
trolling any such lands, tenements or
.hereditaments, goods or chattels,
rights or credits, or any interest
therein, of any such alien enemy,
speedily to inform the Receiver, here
inafter provided to be appointed, ot
the .same, and to render an account
thereof, and, so far as practicable, to
iplace the saute in the hands of such
Receiver; whereupon such person
shall be fully acquitted of all respou
sibility tfor property and effects so
reported and turned over. And any
such person wilfully failing to give
such information and render such
account, shall be guilty of a high
misdemeanor, and upon indictment
and conviction shall be fined in a
sumn not exceeding five thousand dol
lars, and imprisoned not longer than
six months-said fine and imprison
iment to be determined by the court
trying the case--and shall further be
liable to be sued by said Confederate
States, and subjected to pay double
the value of the estate, property or
etiects of the alien enemy held by
him so subject to his control.

has long been felt by publishers of
country papers and small Job Offices.

this sort (similar tb Hoe & C,.'s) and (
offers it to the craft as the cheapest
in the market. Instead of a solid
cast-iron cylinder, it is made of sheet I
iron and filled, being a decided im- t
provement, as it gives 'elasticity to s
to the cylinder. The cost of an or- t

worth, is rendered so palatable.
