Louisianaise, but was never completed because the manuscript was lost by the printers. It is an account, as far as it goes, of the band of pirates who were led by the famous Lafitte. The novel begins well, and the loss of the manuscript must be considered a real misfortune; the French is excellent. Le Soulier Rouge (1849), by D'Artlys, is an Indian story with a considerable historical basis. Governor Vaudreuil sends Aubry to negotiate with Soulier Rouge, who is chief of the Choctaws. Aubry's guide through the Louisiana forests has a niece, whom Aubry marries. The negotiations are not, successful, and Aubry kills Soulier Rouge, who had killed his father. Aubry appears in Gayarreas history, from which D'Artlys borrowed. The story is only moderately long and is excellently written. The numerous descriptions of savage ceremonies make it an interesting document. D'Artlys had a nimble pen. He contributed regularly to La Violette, in the department called Revue de la Semaine. H

ine, Clay, Johnston, and the border counties, on Thursday noon, at the head of Middle fork of Grand river, fifteen miles from the Kansas line, and the same day started for Kansas. Our scouts brought word that afternoon to the military station at Aubry, six miles north of the place where they crossed the line, of the assembling on Grand river, and an hour after their entrance into Kansas other scouts brought word to that effect. The information was at once communicated to all the stations on the border, and to the district headquarters at Kansas City, 35 miles north of Aubry. A delay of three or four hours occurred at each station to gather in part of the patrolling and scouting parties, when the pursuit was begun from each station separately, leaving a portion of the troops to watch the border, and endeavor to prevent Quantrell's return to Missouri. Quantrell's men told many persons, before reaching Lawrence, that they were going there to destroy the town, but by some strang
