Sir In another colnmp will be found a call for a meeting of the citizens of Louis iana at the Ac'demy, on Thursday night at early CVudle light. The object of the mcetCng is to take some step, preparatory to the establishment of a Circulating Libra ryin this place. We trust that the citizens generally will respond to the call; and that we shall have a full meeting. The object is not only one of importance, but one in which all are interested. Then all should attend. . Sr We are indebted to our attentive and industrious Representative, Hon. James H Relfe, for a valuable public document. The communication of our correspond ent "G." will appear hereafter. The communication of "a friend to truth" which may be found on our first page, is in its details very similar to one on the subject of gossip, which we read in some magazine a few years ago; but the object of the communication which is well ...

Now he proposed to take a brief review of the acts of our cammaiiders, and test them by the closest application of these principles, and see tf any blame could be laid to their charge. In doing: this, he in tended to scrutinize their acts, and their acts only acts to be consummated and not descend to a censorious criticism of their proclamations. He cared but little about proclamations; they were harmless missiles at best, while their acts did honor to the head and the heart. A little bom bast in the proclamation of a conquering 'general, announcing the glorious tidings of victory, if fault at all, is a very pardonable one. It demonstrates that the heart was in the right place. It is at most but the out pourings of overwrought feelings of patri otism, in proclaiming the glad tidings of victory to our arms; and he submitted to gentlemen whethe...

I wish through the me dium of your columns, to return my sincere thank to the author of the communication, as well as, to my friends generally, for the kind and generous feeling manifested to wards me. Though I may never be able to attain the enjoyment of the honor, which they would freely confer upon me, yet I shall ever feel proud of the glorious privi lege granted tome, of cherishing a grateful recollection of their kindness and their friendship. In reply to this flattering call and the urgent solicitations of friends, I am induced to present my name before the people, to be used, as they may desire In this, as in all other matters of the kind, I feci anxious that the voice of the people shall be heard, and never would I willingly oppose an ob stacle to their choice.

THE B ANNE R United we stand, Divipkd we fall. LOUISIANA. MISSOURI. MONDAY, - MARCH 1. There ha been a very sudden and con siderable rise in the price of almost every xind of produce. We are inclined to the opinion, that prices may even advance a little higher, though it is proballe that they have nearly reached the maximum point. The failure of the pvtatoe crop in Ireland, and the partial failure1 of the wheat crop in some of the grain growing regions on the Continent, have produced quite an active and steady demand for American grain in Europe. The scarcity of breadstuff's is not confined to Ireland, but extends to a considera ble portion of the Continent. It is probable then that the farmers will be enabled to dispose of their grain at a fair price, at any time during the present spring; but we would not advise them to hold on to it with the expectation of getting a much better price than it will now command. It is better to sell for a good price, than to risk the chances of a ch...

Should this measure re ceive the favorable consideration of Con gress, it is recommended that a bounty be granted to them upon their voluntarily ex tending their term of service. This would not only be due to these gallant men, but it would be economy to the Government; be cause, if discharged at the end of the 12 -months, the government would be bound to incur a heavy expense in bringing them back to their homes, and in sending to the seat of war new corps of fresh troops to supply their place.
