This plar a at the mouth of th Little Missouri river, about bait way between Camden and Arkadelpbia. The mouth of tbe Little Missouri is the head of steamboat navigation on the Ouachita river, and boats can get to that point whenever they can reach Camden. Tbe town site, heretofore known aa Tate's Bluff, is elevated table land, above all overflow, and is tbe nearest shipping point af an extensive cotton region, including the b-ack lands In Clark connty, which is rapidly settling up, and the trade of which would go there if inducements were offered by the establishment of alorea, and groceries and dry goods. The place affords a fine opening for enterprising business men, and its location is such as to enable it to compete successfully -with Cam den for the trade of Southwestern Arkansas. A merchant at that place, prepared to make advances, could control tbe shipment of the cotton now carried out of tbe upper Ouachita and Little Missouri rivers in keel boars to Camden, for rrshlpment. It is also more accessible inland than Camden ta the planters af Dallas and Hempstead counties. Communications addreaaed ta the undersigned, at Little Bock, or to E. C.

Your correspondent finds himself, this most lovely morning after passing a bitterly cold night pencil in hand on the top of one of the highest of these rocky, pine-cevered mountain peaks of this wild and romantic, bat poverty stricken country. It is certainly a strange and interesting region, notwithstanding its sterility. But now came I ere, say you ? Well, not willingly, nor on my own account. But having a very faithful servant almost entirely paralyzed from the effects of rheumatism; the doctors say, and the same eminent authorities having prtmpunced his cure very doubtful, unless carried to the Hot Springs of Arkansas that place of healing of tbe halt, the lame and tbe paralyzed ; and the negro himself, seeming to be overwhelmed at the idea of being sent off from home, unless V master" went with him, I had no other alternative and here I am. But toget here ! Aye, there's the rub On the swift moving Antelope, to Napoleon, all went well. But at Napoleon! Have you landed there, of a dark night, during a soaking rain, with af paralyzed negro ia charge,' and knowing no one? No! Pray that you never may, and especially if you are compelled to spend a night and day in.... well, not the St. Charles or the Astor, bya long shot; Obliged to sleep two (men) in"a bed, and that none of the cleanest. Next evening, finding there was no certainty as to when the " Umpire" for the Arkansas would start, a crowd of us got on board the little stern-wheeler, the Jessy Lazier, whose very clever captain did what he could to make us as comfortable as : circumstances would permit, lieaching Aberdeen, on White River, a little before midnight, on Saturday night," we took the stage'there in waiting, for Little Rock, a uitlhtit-e of sixty miles, over an excellent road, great part of it level prairie. But such a night of cold has rarely been experienced on Ihef-lth and fith of April in tbese latitudes! Befpre we left the boat the ground was frozen to a considerable depth, and before morning the W heels of the heavily loaded stage did not alwlays break through the frozen crust ! Though crowded, the inside passengers suffered no little from the cold. And, by-tbe way, I bave not seen such quautities of prairie grouse, as on these prairieBthat cold morning, since I shot over he prairies of Illinois for three successive seasons, twenty years ago. And the large plover, known by the French hunters of your State as the pvpa-bottr, were in myriads. A good many deer, too, were visible in the distance. Keached Little Kock about 4 P. M. Quite ! a pleasant place, I should judge, from the j glimpee I got : but more on that in my next. As the slave was to leave at midnight a most absurd arrangement, and especially so for invalids, as the distance, sixty miles, can be easily made by daylight got to bed early. The drive to the springs was made anything but a pleasant one by this midnight departure. The road is rough and mountainous, and through a most interesting country. By the way, it is a matter generally uuderstood that each of us in our journey through life must reckon upon disponing of our " peck of dirt." 0'ie thing is certain, that any one who travels oftt.ii over the route from Napoleon to the Hot Springs, via Aberdeen, will get more than his share, unless, as I should advise, he avoids the fare of the taverns and steamboats, by carrying along a something in the shape of dinner and lunch. The fare, almost uni-' verf ally, consists of dirty or discolored water for coffee, a miserable apology for bread, bacon, and occasionally eggs. I give this renlte hint for the benefit of ladies aud invalids dismissing the subject with the assurance that the hotel at th springs, two in number, seem to be comfortably kpt and pleant homes : te table and beds clau and tidy. Those springs are certainly both curious and interesting. Suppose a dep rocky g'.eu, between almost perpedicular, thiniy wooded mountains ; a pretty brawling stream, tumbling and gargling along; considerable of a village strewed on one sioe of the brook ; one little mill busily at work, a'-d another in ruins ; a dene cloud of vapor arisirg from the base of the hiii on the Jeft and you bave a tolerable idea of the Hot Spring. For my part I wasplea-?-antly disappointed. It is said that as ln ago aa parties of French and Spanish residents in Mississippi and Louisiaua visited these spiicgs tor the cure of rheumatism and other diseases, camping iu the then wilderness. And ever since that iirn it has been, more or les, a place of resort. Many wondrfui cures have been effected ; though soin-?, of course, return uncured. TLe water is perfectly pure and !i;npid, though hot. I whs prepared to find it strongly impregnated wMi sulphur, - c . The main h:t fpiings gush out of the lace of tiie mountain et a height of. perhaps, SO to 1(10 feet above the base : and for a dWaiTCe of 100 jards or nearly tbey break out at about the same level. The I entire body of hot water would fill a pipe ot hi or l1"; iuehes in diameter, if all issuing jat one spot. The springs vary somewhat iu temperature from 10j to Loll of Fahrenheit,. At the foot of the mountain, ar.d w here tdcre ) every reason to believe the hot water at one time poured ort, uei se clouds of hot vapor is?ue Vlie water, though apparently so puru to both tbd eye aud the palate, deposits with some rapid'ty'a mixture of silex and carbonate of lime, forming a lava-like stone Tue deposit hvt evidently doted up the oiiiiia! outlets, forcing the Tiler to find its way through crevices in the rocks, to a greaterj height If the opinio is la-ed upon the retusts iu boring artesian w lis re to be relied upon, s-howi-ig that trrti fc.n-peratuie increaseo about li.e dngrcei witu every additional MHi feet of depth, these tpiiiigs are probably the outlets: of a va-;t l.atuml artesian well, coming from a great depth, say 4 000 feet. Tue San Antonio river, nr'i liiose other lovely streams of We-Wn Texas which burst from tbe earth iu a similar manner, are of a lite character? Tne temperature of all of the springs forming the sources of the Sun Antonio is nearly fan same 78 degrees. Tbe effort is now being made iu Paris to procure a supply of hoc water for the use of that city, by boring a greater depth than ever before. Uaths are arranged where the vapor fsiiis from the foot of the mountain, to which the water is carried from the hot spring above -, so that the bather has the choice of water baths at any desired temperature, or of the most delightful vapor bath. I tried both, and enjoyed them exceedingly. Being placed close by the hotels and lodging room", they are exceedingly convenient to bathers. Messrs. Stedbam &. Aiken are now erecting new bathhouses, with bath arrangements for rega-lating the temperature of the baths, which theycan the more readily effect, ss they have the command of the stream of cold water before it recei ves that from the hot springs D r, Hammond, the only resident physician very pleasant and intelligent gentleman wio has been located there for several years, and has closely studied tbe eSecta of the bathing upon the different diseases and constitutions of the thousands wbo frequent these springs, claims for them great curative powers in rheumatism, and diseases induced by . tbe improper or extreme use of mercury. Three miles from these Hot Springs are some very favorite chalybeate water; where is a hotel said to be admirably kept. And at a : distance of eight miles are springs of strong sulphur water, of which Dr. Hammond spoke ; favorably. - Near by are quarries of the celebrated AHc-1 ansae or Washita whetstones, from whiob Mr. Whittington procures his euppl'es of the rough material, worked up in the most perfect manner by his little water-mill at tbe Hot Springs, where he resides. Tbese whetstones he ships to all parts of the Union, and finds the de maud increasing upon him in such a degree, as to induce tbe enlargement of his factory. Tbe great question with invalids is, how to reach these springs 1 All of the steamers, going both up and down the Mississippi, of course will land pas-sen grrs at Napoleon. There the accommodation is very poor indeed. Small stern-wheeled boats run up the Arkansas river to Little Rock every few days ; of which tbe most comfortable at present, I understand, are tbe Ark an-saw and the Tucker. Their usual time from Napoleon to Little Rock, "barrin" accidents, is two days; fare $10. Every other day, I think, email boats leave Napoleon for Wo ite River, connecting with the stage line at Aberdeen, and carrying the mail; time to Little Rock about forty to forty five hours, out one night in the stage; fare $12; accommodation by no means good, yet the route is sure, and reasonably expeditious. ! The stage leaves Little Rock at midnight of tbe day of arrival there ; an absurd arrangement, but necessary for the support of the hotels ; a rough road aud rough fare, charge for stage $6, meals 5Ua, and nothing te brag of at that ! Al! this is information anxiously sought by. invalids desiring to go to the Hot Springs, and may be usetul to others ; it would have been to me. I speak of the diry and discomfort, because that can all be easily remedied. Even the Anthony House, -the chief hotel in Little Kock, locks as if not a floor had .been scrubbed, nor a wall white-washed in five years ! The landlord and all about the house are kind and attentive, ' bat that is not enough the hotel keeper becomes,' for the time, the servant of the public, charge his own prices for the accommodation ! he fur liishes, which should be at least clean and comfortable. " It yeu don't like it, go elsewhere !'' All very good. But a traveler who has been out all right in a stage, tired, dusty, hungry and uncomfortable,, is in no plight to hunt around for a night's lodging, and has a right to expect all that tbe good looks and smiling attentions of the jolly host, who waits him at the stage door, would premise. Don't you think so ? I do. But enough. Ever yours.

Commerce of Russit It is stated as a re- j markablo fact that the commerce of Russia ' has not only recovered from the effects of the j ;ate war, but exhibits actually anincreawe as compared with the year which immediately ! j receded the outbreak of hostilities, laui: The exports from the. port o"' St Petersburg for the last year are st down at 54.!'ii.0 l roubles ; for 1853 they aiuoudted to 52. jrr,'2.l , showing an increase in favor of last year of G5.S K30 roubles.

The Shreveport Gazette, of the 11th inst, says: The dry weather which prevailed throughout the country previous to the late rainy and cold spell prevents a great deal -of corn from oom-ing up, and we heard of some planters who bad ploughed up and were replanting. We think it likely that very little cotton had come . up before tbe cold weather the first of tbe -week. The Alexandria Democrat says the snow was lying thick upon the ground in that seo-tion of country, on Sunday morning-, the 12 J inst. The Democrat adds: The cold weather has destroyed all hopes of tbe peach crop in our country. As for cotton many of our planters are ploughing np the first planting and making ready for s second. Tbe cane is not materially injured. Tbe Harrisonburg (Catahoula parish) Independent, of the 15th, says : Our atmosphere was thoroughly chilled by the freeze that occurred on tbe night of the ' 5th inst , and the heavy frost that followed the night after. Since then, there has been a general prevalence of north winds, and the weather has continued unusually cool for the season. . On Saturday night last, snow fell at this place to the depth of two inches. Early planted cotton had been killed, and early corn nipped te tbe ground before tbe coming of tbe snow. On Wednesday night last the exhibition boat, "Hindoo Pagoda," was entirely destroy- erl by tire and a man named John Shay, a musician belonging to the troupe, wan burnt to death, and another person so badly burned, that his life is despaired of. This terrible ac- -cident occurred at Trinity. - The manager had that night given an entertainment to the citizens of that place, end after the exhibition was over, and the company had dispersed, all on board retired to rest. About 1 o'clock in tbe morning, they awoke, not from the alarm of fire, but literally in tbe midst of fire. One of the musicians had set a lighted candle upon a table, without a candlestick, and left it burning on going to bed. When the candle burned dowp, tbe table took fire and communicated -it to tbe drapery and chemicals that were near. From tbe highly inflammable character of tbe material, which the devouring element had then reached.- it spread with awful velocity, and in a few minutes the wbobv boat wm wrapped in flames. The persons on "board, except tbe unfortunate man who was lost, escaped in tbeir night clothes, saving nothing-whatever. By this calamity, the proprietor of tbe establishment, Mr.'J. W. Buhoup, loses his all. The boat and paraphernalia of exhH bition, were valued at $4,300. No insurance tbe boat and property an entire loss. The citizens of Trinity, with a noble sympathy ami liberality, came" forward promptly, to relieve the distress, which had fallen so suddenly and so severely npon strangers in their midst. We notice that the Americans and the Democrats in several parishes have already elected delegates to their respective State Conventions to be leld in Baton Rouge. Judge Mayo has been elected Judge of tbe Eleventh Judicial District, composed of the parishes of Catahoula, Franklin and Caldwell, without opposition. Judge Farrar has been reelected J udge of the Tenth Judicial District, composed of the par. ishes of Tensas, Madison and Carroll, by av large majority over Mr. Dabose. the opposing;! candidate. Tbe Concordia Intelligencer, of the 17th inst., says : ' At 2 o'clock on Sunday morning, the 12tb inst., after a copiousain and a northeast turn to the wiBd, the snow oommenced falling in earnest, which, it continued until 8 or D o'clock in tbe morning with but little intermission. Had the deposit been ableo have kept from melting on the ground, it would doubtWs Lave measured from three to four inches in depth. By 9 o'clock, however, the snow wm all melted, and the wintry pageant was n more. " The Pointe Coupee Echo, of the 18th icet , -says : - , - The unueual spell of cold weat'ier whicli we have had during tbe whole of this monlu, has been any thing but beneficial to the crop of young corn and cotton, which bat recently promistd so Javcrably. In many instances tbe whole crop will have to be replanted, so a' completely has it been killed by the frost and ice. The sugarcane, although a much hardier plant, has also t offered, and all that we have seen looks verymnch scorched and withered; but within the last few days, we are happy to state, it has begun to assume its wonted verdancy, and shonld we have no more such unfavorable weather, a fine crop may yet be an- ticipated. The Tbibodaux Minerva, of tha 13th in?:., SH 8 : There is no denying tbe laot that the recsn:. cold weather has greatly injured the growim; crops. Ia many places-, all the early plant. .' corn has been ploughed up, and planters are now engaged in replanting. The sugarcane, which was grea'.ly in advauco of l-i t year; ha. "" been seVerly nipped, and will reuira remark-, nbiy favorable weather to bring it out aain. It is truly a sad sight to view the bligbte'l crops on the line of the Opelousas I'liifo.;' from Algiers to Brashear City. K The same paper reports -that Bsyou Le-fouiche is again on the1 rise. . Extraordinary Hiktna nagc me ut of Pub. : Contjaniet in London. The following announcement of extraordinary mis'ianageoQerit of compnnies in Loudon, by which the stockholders meet with loss to a v.nt '.amount, - made in the London Times, of Mari;h 2o : On Monday last there was an e.xooure r,f the Australian Agricultural, wbi!i, witu a. piid np capital of 01.000, and a graat nearly 700,000 acres of valuable land, hm squandered all its immediate resources, the shareholders meau'inle being kept in jrfro-found ignorance. A few days previously, ia connection wi;o the abandonment pf the project of the London and Paris Uaak, a -i!auce sheet wan presented to the Subscribers, sho ving 11,-to Lave bscu expended by the director 3 in the mere introduction of that enterprise to the public, not a sing!estep having been taken in tbe shape of an absolute commeucemenc ot business. Yesterday the theme was the London ami Eastern Bank, which was established three years back. It tas contrived in that period -to assist its own directors and manazer wirli sums amounting in the aggregate to nearly 290,000, and is now obliged to announce to its shareholders tbe probable loss of tbeir whole investment, with the possibility of tbe'.r JieiDg called upon even for a farther considerable contribution. The addition to the list for today's furnished by the North of Earope Steam Company. It appears f rom the meeting wbiab , took place to day, that the directors have periled tbe entire property of their constituent by leaving it in the control ef a single individual; that 50,(100 or upwards out of capital of 500,000 has been lost in the courso of a few menths, without the Board having-the slightest snspiolon of the circumstance ; ana that tbe last halt-yearly dividend, at the rate of 8 per cent, per annum was paid while these ruinous proceedings were golnjr on. Tbe distribution, which involves 13,000. was made on tbe faith of a statement prepared by the managing director, Capt. Andrews showing fer the half year ending midsummer a prof t of upwards of 20,000. 4 i1: 'I 1 4' 1; it I m 13 !! !i ' 1 1 . 1 mi: 4 IM ilil is r :! I 1 1 I'I nTT WW? IT
