artificial touches of our Northern sisters. Of these were festoons, wreaths, stars and garlands, mysteriously woven in evergreens and flowers. Over the portico entrance outside were the following inscriptions, the letters being formed with cedar foliage: "The House that Jeff. Built." "Welcome." The latter motto was arched, and, with the festoons, made a very beautiful appearance. Inside were beautiful stars and garlands of flowers, and over the exit at the back door the following inscription, surmounted by a star: "Exit Traitor." It was facetiously remarked by an observer that the motto was-- Down with the traitor, And up with the star. We understand that to Miss. Lee, of Pennsylvania, and Miss. Jennie Hudson, of Indiana, the party was indebted for those ingenious and appropriate devices. Very likely, for wit and satire for traitors, and cordial welcome to the loyal and patriotic, are characteristics of these whole-souled missionaries.

ribed by the Vicksburg Herald. Whether the "ladies" alluded to are black or white does not appear anywhere in this record: Davis's Bend.--This is one of the most extraordinary bends of the wonderful Mississippi river, and has received its name from the fact of the settlement on the peninsula formed by the bend of two members of the Davis family, known as "Jeff" and "Joe." This peninsula is some twelve miles in length, and at the point where it is attached to the main land of the State of Mississippi it is so narrow that the enterprising planters have dug a canal across, not unlike the celebrated Butler canal of Vicksburg fame, although not near so long. This canal is called the "cut off," and in high water the peninsula becomes, in fact, an island. This tract of land is of great fertility, being entirely a deposit of the rich soil washed from the prairies of the Great West. On this tract are some six plantations, of from 800 to 1,200 acres each. Two of the largest and best of

Built.--The house is, in its ground plan, in the form of a cross — but one floor, with large rooms and ample verandahs. The portion in front is supported with pillars, and these form the only ornamental features of the house, except such as were ad sisters.

Cotton is chiefly cultivated, and some very handsome "stands" appear. The "Joe Place."--The "Joe place" is nearest the landing. The fine brick house, however, is nearly demolished; but the cottage, used as a sort of law library and office, is remaining uninjured. The negro quarters also remain. The "Jeff.
