MONROE, LA., JANUARY 13, 1871.
The river has fallen at least four feet

Gen. West, the new Senator, we are
told, is a native of Louisiana, but left
the State when a lad, returning since
the war. We are also assured he is
strongly inclined to the Democratic
faith, and enjoys the respect and esteem
of the best citizens of New Orleans.
He is represented as an urbane, ener

We would suggest to such communi
ties and parishes as are interested in
proposed railroad or other public enter
prises, that they meet in consultatiop
and give expression to their wishes in
the premises, while the legislarture is
in -ession. That body is likely-not to
give much attention to the wants of the
country, unless those wants -ie dis
tinctly set forth. We believe in pub
lic enthusiasm as a motive power for
politicians and stupid assemblies. We
lblieve in railroads, and in live news
papers; but it requires popular backing
to build up and sustain either. Our
section of country is in great need of
both, as stimulants to a vigorous and
life-like existence. Let us have a few
rousing railroad meetings; put energet
ic, stirring men in the lead, and we
shall see quite a changed condition in
the affairs of the country. There is al
together too much inertness, unless our
case was entirely hopeless, which is
not the case with any country that will
sprout peas, much less ours where one
laborer is good for five hundred dollars.
