Four weeks have elapsed without more than four days In which profitable till age could be done. The corn planted before this time, is up, of course, but stands in the drill sickly and unprom ising, while the soil in the bed is firm ly and closely packed, and very nearly beaten to a level. A few planters, however, have kept their plows run ning whenever the rain was not pour ing down, saying that plowing wet land is no Injury when the rain keeps on falling. The Mississippi overflow has been steadily encroaching on the lands east of this, and Its waters even now effect the bayou on the eastern limit of our corporation, 6,000 feet from the river.. It is out of the question to count upon a good corn crop this year; while as to cotton, it may be safely said that, owing to the condition of the cotton lands,the yield...

MONROE, LA., APRIL 10, 1874. FASHION NOTES. Every use allowable will be made of artificlal flowers. Pretty jabots are made of lie -laces, and garnitured with artificial rosebuds or other delicate blossoms. Cunning little lace pockets, worn a la chatelaine, are made of white lace. They are llded with some bright col ored silk; and the latest fancy is to oinament them on the flap with a tiny bouquet. . Small knots for the hair and breast will be wort, only less, and g lly in conjunction with knots'o d'lKiate colored ribbon. Snow-blue ribbons, with pink or' scarlet rosebuds, are ex quisitely pretty. Among the very new novelties of late appearance are gilots or waistcoats, which are orn above the bodice, and serve greatly to ligh en the toilet. The new dress-coats or swMowt.ail basques announced for ladies open over a vest with double points, like that now worn by gentlemen ; they are both sin gle and double breasted.

The Mempble Appeal says: An idea of the condition of our friends in the overflowed district, down the river, may be had -fom the following : • An attorney in this city wrote to the clerk of one of the courts at Napoleon for a transcript of a certain case. The clerk replied : "Your transcript was in pro grew, but the water moved me, my family, my furniture, my office and my records, andthen your transcript ceased. At present I am in the upper part of the jail, but, thank the Lord, the Sheriff is here with me. It is the larg est, highest, and meanest water that ever was here-a foot higher than in 1862. They baptize converts out of the second story windows of churches.

We have a story of high water, in the OIsahits, to record, unparalleled in the writtsn or unwritten history of this seetlon. When we stated, two weeks ago, that the year 1874 would be mseem orable, for half-a-entury, for high waters, we little expected the flood would be so great or disastrous; and when, now, we come to chronicle the extent of the overflow and of the dep trection, wearesimply lost in a wilder roa of water; incidents of the flood and afrlctions of the people, and know not where to begip, what to say, or where to end. We have nq.precedents to be guided by, no standard of losses or of floods that will convey an idea to tlie distant reader, who ever saw this coun try, of the exteht of the ruin broitgut upon the Oua ihlta'Valley by the late overflow.

0. W. W5cORANIU, 1 MONROE, LA., MAYVý54 SUMNER AND TIH sOU1 The Hon LqnAr, M. C. from MissisaIi for ~ ol La speech in Congress, that "Mississippi regrets the death of Charles Sumner and unites In paying honor to his memory," has incensed some of the conservative pa pers of his State, among them the Mc ridian Mercury, which declares that the historian will write Mr. Lamar down as "a truculent statesman of the South who basely fawned upon the victors in passing ill-timed eulogies upon the dead enemies of his section." We rather think that the fiery seceder of Oxford would have shown more dis cretion and consistency in withholding his eulogium of Mr. Sumner. When it is said that Charles Sumner was true in his devotion to what he believed to be right, all is said that any Southron can say. What he believed to be right, has been realized-and the South is ruined. Centuries will not repair the damage,not alone as to material wealth, but in nearly every other essential quality of a great,...

He did not see how it was that the people had no voice in the management of their own affairs. .He inquired of the Senator the name of the person who was the president of the upper levee board. Alcorn said it was F. M. Alcorn, his son. Conkling said he would not re main silent and listen to insinuations that the national administration was responsible for sins of omissions and commissions in the Southern SLates. The misrule in Mississippi was not brought about by carpet-bnggers or non-resideintors, and the Senator (Alcorn) might as well charge the ...
