We were much pleased the other day to bear of the prosperity of this experimental colony at Faiqut taiqrie, in the parish of tit. Landry, home time last spring about sixty Germans, more or lean, under the direction of Mr. T. Jabacher, settled there. Mr. F. en. tered for them a large body of land (fourteen thousand acresi, of which each one cultivates certain portion, in projvortion, we believe, o the force he can put in the field. Thus each man is secured a homestead of Li own, and the expenses of bringing him out, prodding prodding him with agricultural implements, besides besides other necessaries, are to be reimbursed to Mr. Fabacher oat of the first profits o each tarm.
