tleman in Kansas to a friend in our
town: . ;
"The Legislature is now in session;
an intelligent body. Asa
general thing the Governor is popular.
This is a fine country rich soil good
society. The fighting has nearly all
The Washington Star says:
The presure of strangers here is already
immense much larger than ever before
so long.previous to2 the advent ol an in
augeration day, even when the induce
ment for office-seekers to flock to Wash
ington was much greater than atpresent.
If they.continue to come upon us until
the fourth after this fashion, there will be
perhaps 100,000 strangers here by that
time. The scene in the parlors at Wil
lards' yesterday afternoon was as brilliant
as in a ball room, so great was the throng
of stranger ladies in brilliant array. So
al so was the scene at the Kirkwoods'; in
both of which we had occasion to enter.
The Nashville Union and American
says: "There are many reasons for believ
ing that the present prices of provisions
will still continue. They are still high,
but are not likely, to be much reduced for
a year or two. The population of our
cities all over the Union is increasing
fast, making the consumption of food
greater every year. The stock of cattle,
hogs and sheep, it is said have not in
creased in an equal proportion. The for
igt demand for our breadstuff's will al
ways be large. The poupulation of the
-whole Union will by 1800 be considera
"bly over thirty millions, while button
years ago it was but little over twenty
millions. There will thus be one-half
more people to feed, and rapidly as the
West is filling up and the farming inter
est extending, the increase of production
does not exceed the increase of the con
sumers. Were the population stationa
ry, or nearly so, then there might be even
a superabundance of food. Eut as it ia,
there is no chance for it."
ll is stated that Mr. Dallas, now
Minister to England, will undoubtedly
be recalled by Mr. Buchanan as he
fails to represent the sentiment of foreign
policy which it is meant shall prevail in
tke next Government. Who will be his
successor, the gossips have not yet dis
coveredf but the name of Hon. Daniel S.
Dickinson, of New York, is mentioned as
that of a prooable candidate for the po
sition. The insurrection movement so
much talked of has not depreciated the
price of negroes. We notice that they
are commanding extraordinarily high pri-
ces in every Southern Si ate.
A man named John Nehr, of Castro
villa, Texas, was engaged in deepening a
well, a few days since, when the entire
wall fell in npon him. The accident
occured early in the morning, and after
wards he couldjoccasionally be heard ma
king a slight noise. At two o'clock, on
the same day, they had removed the stone
down to his head, when our informant
left, and he was still alive, and some
hopes were entertained of rescuing him
Victories in Nicaragua.
Under this caption the New Orleans
" Delta of the 20th ult., says:
"The glad tidings which we publish
this morning from Nicaragua will cheer
! the hearts of those who have desponded
; at the thought ol General Walker's final
defeat. His position seems now stronger
- than ever. Three more battles have been
.'fought and won. The gallant Texan
Col. Sockridge. proceeded with his men
i to the mouth of the Serapiqui, and there
attacked the Costa Ricani, end drove
i them from the point with a loss of one
'. hundred men. All who know Col Lock
ridge will not be surprised at this exploit
He is one of those daring men whose pres
ence and action would alone ensure vie
tory to his troops. At latest account the
Colonel was preparing to attack the ene
my on the other side of the river, and it
was fully anticipated that in a short time
he would be master of every position on
uenerai walker still hold In? groun
in Rives. The Costa Ricans, under Gen.
Canes, having foolishly advanced towards
the city, a portion of Walker's army was
aent out to meet him, and, after twenty
four hours skirmishing, repulsed him, the
enemy losing about one hundred men.
Gen. Henningsen, whose heroic defense
in Granada is still fresh in the memories
of all, marched from Bivas, and having
met the enemy in greatly superior num
bers at St. George, attacked them. The
victory was again with the brave, for the
battle ended by the Costa Ricansbeiug
routed with a loss of 200 killed end 400
The victory still hovers over the Amer
icans in Nicaragua, and the man of Des

Bold Attempt at Robbery. A very
bold attempt was made on Saturday night
to enter the jewelry store of Mr. W, H.
Calhouw, on the public square. They
were discovered by a watchman on his
rounds, who gave chase, but the other
watchmen on the square were at the mo
ment engaged in taking two prisoners
to the work house, and hence the burglars
made their escape, before additional
watchmen could answer the call. One
of the burgulars shot twice at the watch
man who discovered them, being only
eight or ten feet distant at each fire, but
fortunately missed him. These men, it
is evident, had been watching an oppor
tunity, for the chief of the police had left
the vicinity ol the store only a Jew min
utes provious to their discovery. In their
flight, the burglars dropped some of their
tools an auger, chisels, Ore. xneynrst
made en effort to enter the cellar, break
ing off the out lock but find
ins the door locked on the inside,
hey went to work to remove the transom,
that an entrance might he ettecteu over trie
the door, and it was while thus engaged
that they were discovered. But for the
fact that the other watchmen on the
square were engaged as mentioned, some
or all these burglars would have been ar
rested. Nashville Union and American.

THE FARMING COMMUNITY, having
become generally convinced of the great ad
vantage of grinding Corn Bnd Cob for Stock,
the only question to be considered is which is
the best Mill for the purpono? In all the
cast iron Mills heretofore offered, a very seri
ous objection has existed, a wantofdumbility,
or liability soon to wear out. In the "Excel
sior" that objection is removed: The grinding
surface, which is the only part liable to wear
out, consists of rings and cants separate from
tho mill, and when worn out can be removed
and replaced at a cost of three dollars. This
ufill is strong, simple in conduction, easily
put up, and can be moved trom place to place
without difficulty, and will crush 15 bushels
per hour of coin and cob for stock, and grind
meal for family use. The "Excelsior" wns
awarded the highest premium at the great tri

PATENT IMPROVED FBOCESS
For making "
All kinds of Liquors and Vinegar,
INSTANTLY BY THE USE OF .
LACOUK'S ESSENTIAL OILS.
These Oils are obtainod by Distillation at
the Chemical Laboratory, Parish of Jefferson,
ol Pierre Lacour, author of Lacour s Chemi
cal Analysis, Lacour's Chemical Manipula
tions, Lacour on the Manufacture of Liquor4.
Purchasers are particularly requested to
return the flasks and obtain their money, if
the Oil does not give perfect satisfaction.
Lacour's Oil of Cognac converts neutral
spirit to a superior imitation of Imported
Brandies, viz : Otard, Sozerac, Marett Cog
nac, Poultney, Seignette, United Vineyard
Proprietors, Castilian and London Dock Bran
dies. These liquors will have a full fruity
flavor and a beautiful, sparkling color. Com
mon rectified Whisky will be changed by the
use of the Oil of Cognac to New York Bran
dy, Pine Apple Brandy, Common Cognac
Lacour's Oil of Rye changes Rectified
Whisky to Monongahola Rye Whisky, Old
Virginia Malt Whisky, Bourbon Whisky, &c.
Oil of Cedrat changes common Rectified
Whisky to Old Irish Walt Whisky, and a su
perior article of Scotch Whisky.
Oil of Peach changes common Whisky to
Virginia Peach Brandy, &c. Oil of Peach
and Oil of Cognac will convert common whis
ky to Apple Brandy.
Oil of Gin converts the poorest Whisky to
Holland Gin, Scheidam Schnapps, Rose Gin,
Swan Gin, English Gin, &c.
Lacour's Concentrated Acid will, in five
hours after being mixed, change five gallons
of good Vinegar and twenty-five gallons of
water to thirty gallons of the most aeid Vine
gar that can be found in the market. By the
use of Lacour's Concentrated Acid, vinegar
can be made for one dollar and sixty cents per
For making Liquors, Lacour's Oils reqnir.o
no preparation only pour the oil into the
whisky and Bhake well. The liquors thus
made will have a fine natural aroma, a full,
rich, oily taste; a beautiful transpareut color
and a fine bead. Lacour's oils exertrthrce
distinct properties in converting common
whisky to brandy, gin, &c. The first prop
erty combines with and subsides in the form
of fioculent particles tho whole of the grain
oil, (Amylic Alcohol.) The whisky is thus
deprived of that peculiar irritating and burn
ing taste, and becomes a neutral spirit; tho
second property consists in an oily mucillag-
mous taste imparted to the liquor, which ren
ders it mellow, and imparts an appearance of
great age; the third property is exhibited in
the rich vinous nutty odor that is imparted to
the liquor, which renders distinction from tho
genuine brands impossible.
ihese oils are nut up in quart flasks: each
flask contains sufficient oil for making throe
hundres gallons of liquor, full and compre
hensive directions accompany the bottles.
Price, $2 per bottle. For sale at the corner
of St. Charles and Poydras streets.
One box of theso oils, five in number, will
be securely packed and shipped, with bill of
lading, to any part ot the country, upon the'
receipt ot $1U to tlio address ot
f. LiAUUUK, ew ui leans.
Purchasers are requested, as a guarantee
