A Synagogue in Lafayette.
The following telegram expalins itself, and in connection with its publication we will state that our Hebrew friends intend this to be a first class ball in every respect. Funds have to be raised for the building of their Synagogue and they have adopted this as one of their means of reaching the general public at the same time giving them the full value of every dollar they may receive -- in real enjoyment. Mr. Weeks is General Manager of the Crescent News Co., leases of the Railroad Hotel.

It will afford us pleasure to grace you the use of our house for your Ball, Feb. 18th.
E. A. WEEKS, General Manager.

We are happy to
perceive that the spirit of our population, and the future condition of
our little burgh is decidedly on the mend. Without counting the late
buildings that have sprang up and those in contemplation, we noticed
yesterday that the Hebrew association of our Town had been enclosing the
lot donated to them, for a burial ground, we are informed (not
reliably, it has become a dangerous word to use) that it is their
intention soon to build a Synagogue in our midst.
