Allen. The LaBello wi TlI he commanded by the popular Capt. A. DeDgas and will leave New Orleans every 3Wednesday and Saturday evening and TI return on the following days.

The fact that the river trade is growing better is, to a great extent. to Lk be attributed to the late railroad strike, 11 which is gratitingcg to those who lhae st beon grolled dowen by thile relorseless heel of the iron horse.
