It is finely located for business ou tho Red River, being surrounded by an exceeding fertile planting region, about 3 J miles below the "great raft" Since the war Shevesport has been an extensive depot for commissary and other stores for the Trans-Mississippi Confederate troops, and up to tiie time of the siege of Vicksburg, formed an important link in the "chain of supplies" for our Western army.
