Floyd King, member of Con gress from this district, has been in our city the past week. He was look Ing as well as could be expected after his election to Congress by a large mn jority. Mr. Willis I-Iollinsworth has laid on our table an extraordinary egg laid by a chicken hen of the breed known as Dominique. The ordinary egg weighs two ounces. This weighs over three ounces and a-half. Some of our contemporaies boast of large watermelons, turnips, sweet po tatou, and the like, and offer premi- c urns for the largest. Now is our time I to offer a premium, and we offer a year's subscription to any hen that will produce better fruit than that here noticed. Musical Concert. At the solicitation of many friends Miss Alice Stelnau has consented to give a musical concert at an early date. Prof. Hoe...

We wish all of our readers a merry Christmas. We will state for the information of the public that the cars ndw leave Monroe at 9:05, a. m., instead of 7:30. Senator Eustis sends us a number of public documents from Washington, for which we beg he will receive our thanks. Commissions for the various parish and ward officers of this parish have not been received, but will be, we sup pose, in the next ten days. Mr. Acklen, representative in Con gress from this Sate, refused, it is stated, to go Into the Democratic caucus. Mr. Acklen ought to go into retirement, and we think he will, after one more election.

Renwick, member elect of the legislature from this perish, leaves for the Capital to-day. The Mooroe merchants all agree that their Christmas trade this year has fallen considerably short of that of last year. The new year has brought very few business changes in Monroe-not enough to make even a good item. We hope that when we come to speak of 1879 as the old year, a similar report may be made. Mr. Aleck Myatt presented the Editor with a pretty, round, fat little pig, as a Christmas gift. The pig was penned, fed, and carefully nursed and, as a consequence, he died a pre mature death. Poor little pig. Mr. Walter Logan, the new Sheriff of this parish, has Mr. J. E. McGuire as his office deputy, and Mr. James Logan has been qualified for the out door work.

S. farsha's Report on Ouachita. The Cincinnati Commercial, of the 31st, published the following report, telegraphed from Washington, of one E. Shearman, a deputy U.S. Marshal, made to Marshal Wharton at New Or leans, and to be submitted, along with other documents, by the President to the Senate upon the re-assembling o1 that body. It will be seen that Shear man speaks of men and transactions in this parish as if he had been here. Perhaps he has, but we are constrained to say we did not see the man, or learn that a man of such fertility of imaglna* tlon was within our borders. Elimi. nated of its falsehoods, his report could be reduced to twenty lines. He was,ac cording to his own ptatement, a skulker and a sneak, and of course could flnd out nothing.
