This is a curious and interesting region, the vast and partly unknown Gulf swamp of Louisiana. To explore it requires compass and quadrant as much as to traverse the ocean, and a boat can journey for days and weeks through tortuous bayous and lakes, and lagoons, without reaching any definite place or direction, unless guided by some old hunter who knows the route well, or by solar observations. In fact, the interlacing and branching inlets form a perfect labyrinth, whose intricate ways might bring the inexperienced voyager back to the point the started from after days of toilsome
Louisiana shinplasters. --The New Orleans City Council have determined to issue $500,000 in small notes, for the relief of the community, on account of the suspension of the banks of the city.
The war tax. --A people who are unitedly engaged in a struggle for their independence, and determined to separate eternally from the most odious tyranny that ever cursed the earth, will cheerfully make arrangements for the visit of the tax collector, and consider the money which they pay into his hands the best investment they ever made in their lives. The subjoined appointments of chief collectors of the war tax have been made by the President: J. C. Bradley for Alabama; Wm. H. Halliburton for Arkansas; E. E. Blackburn for Florida; E. Starnes for Georgia; Robert A. Lusher for Louisiana; John A. Handy for Mississippi; Wm. K. Lane for North Carolina; Wm. E. Martin for South Carolina; Isaac B. Williams for Tennessee; George J.

Mr. Louis Tregre, of the parish of St. John the Baptist, passed a few days ago through New Orleans on his way to Richmond, whither he goes for the purpose of procuring a patent of a new war engine, and submitting to the approval of the President a plan for the defence of the country. At their last meeting the Police Jury of his parish allowed Mr. L. Tregre a sum of $300 to defray his traveling expenses. Evacuation of Ship Island, Louisiana. Night before last, at eight o'clock, says the New Orleans Bulletin, of Wednesday, the evacuation of Ship Island by the Louisiana troops was completed, the fort dismantled, and the guns, ammunition, &c., removed. This work was performed under the supervision of Col. Duncan and Lieut. Col. Allen, assisted by Capt. Bond, Lieut. Bridges, and Lieut. Simmes, of the regular service.

An eloquent and Timely prayer. --Right Reverend the Bishop (Polk) of Louisiana, having set apart no special prayer to be used with reference to the present state of affairs, Reverend Dr. Goodrich, of St. Paul's, and Reverend Mr. Fulton, of Calvary, in New Orleans, have adopted the following sublime scriptural supplication, which was set forth, towards the close of the sixteenth century, by the Archbishop of Canterbury, in view of the great war then waging by Philip of Spain against Elizabeth of England. It has been slightly altered to adapt it to the present circumstances of the Confederate States: A prayer. O. Eternal God! In power most mighty, in strength most glorious, without whom the horse and charlotte is in vain prepared against the day of battle, vouchsafe, we beseech Thee, from Thy high throne of majesty, to hear and receive the hearty and humble prayer which, on banded knees, we, the people of Thy pasture and the sheep of thy hands, unfeignedly acknowledging T
