CONDITION OF LOUISIANA.
The condition of the, (jlcvees" of Louisiana
causes considerable uneasiness to the,inhabit
ants of that State. The New Orlean^'JhVyiy-'
une says': u.. n, .ntnn.:.. u
Both Gen. Cabby and Gov! - 'Welis have
manifested an earnest solicitude oh this sub
ject, and have spared no effort-to press upon
the. authorities at Washington the urgency of
action by the war department. North- of
Red river there are four of the richest; par
ishes of the State, including, pethaps. the
richest ancl most productive - agricultural sec
tion of the same extent and population in the!
world. These are the parishes of Concordia,
Carroll, Madison and Tensas. The land of
these parishes is all alluvion, which has been
rescued from the Mississippi by an’ exten
sive system of leveeing. This leveeing
has kept the water, not only from the land
immediately on the river‘-bank. v )>nt also
from the lake; ami bay.ms ileu inu there-
irom, which lie some miles from the river.
The land on these bayous afid lakes was thus
brought into cultivation, arid Lee!,me the
most productive in the world. .In ilSijQ .the.
four parishes named produced and
338.000 bales of cotton, more than one third
of the whole product of Eouisiiina: " ‘Af pres
ent rates, that cotton would lie of the value
of nearly fifty millions of.dollars, and even,
at tho old rate3 would reach fifteen millions;
avast product for a population of forty thou
sand people, whites find blacks. At the pres
ent rate of taxation, two cents - per pound,
such a product would yield to tlip, Federal
treasury over two millions of dollars, . •
Nine-tenths of the lands of these parishes
are nhw under water, or subject to ,l ttv'erfiow,
long before the .river reaches high-water-
mark. The levees have been cut, and canals
dug by the military authorities pf thp^mted;

Paris has been greatly excited by the news
Of a!n extensive conspiracy. It is hot one of
the old sort, however ; Legitimists had no
hand in it; red republicans had nothing to
do With it. ‘ It was a conspiracy of specula
tors, and their object was; not to dethrone a
dynasty, but to make money, A fews days
ago a large number of sharebrokers in Paris
received from Lyons telegraphic messages,
ordering snles of various stocks, chiefly
Rentes ahd Mobiliers. • These were signed bv
weli known Lyons brokers, and their brethren
in Paris, had no reason to suspm :.ny:hini;
wrong.. .It,so,happened, however, that one
of the Parisian brokers, who had received
an order to Sell, happened to be in the com
pany of the Lyons brokers from whom the
order professed to come. '‘Hero is an order
of sale for 50,000 francs from your house,"
said the first to the second. The latter re
marked that it was very strange that such an
order should have' been sent in his absence,
and' requested the former to reduce the
amount to 5000,francs. Another somewhat
similar occurrence happening almost simul
taneously led to inquiry, which proved the
whole thing to be a fogery and conspiracy,
the perpetrators of which had thought to
cause a fall, an the value of stock, which-

■A little girl about two years old, and a di

with her brother, by some unaccountable* ac
cident, foil into a well about thirty feet to

mother running out discovered her little dar
ling floating on the water. The bucket wa?
down (it probably went down with the
clrild,) and the mother; instead of wasting
her energies in fruitless screams, caught the
ropprond swung the bucket partially under
the child, the little bands grasped the pail,
aud it wag drawn to the top and rescued by
tho terrible but courageous parent. During
its perilous journey out, it looked up and
several 1 times called “mamma,” “mamma.”
A more thrilling period and rescue seldom
occurs, and, indeed, the whole is next to mi-
raculous; but the facts are beyond cavil.
