kindly furnished us by Major Wellborn of
our County who received it' by private con-
veyance Irom New Orleans.
Our friends of the Tropic seem to have
partaken so largely of the excitement caused
by tbe preparation for the contest as entirely
to have lorgotten to date their paper. The
only way we discovered the date was by
looking at the theatrical advertisements.
It gives us great pleasure to peiceivo that

tbe presence of some men solus is in itsell a

great assistance in (he coming contest.
