I!vn Jthn B. Conway, Mayr:
.'r-In answer to your letter requesting me to
inform you how the contemplated " New Orle:ios
and ship Island Canal" will, if carried out, agree
with our present drainage nystem, and also
whether it will not interfere with the freedom of
c rnulation throughout our city, I have to say,
that to understand the objectioai which may be
raited against this project I w:ll first give a
syn~,iis of the charter, showiti' the privileges
granted and the charges imposed upon the com
pany.erpe~,' l charter has been grantedto Messrs.
SF. brrutt, Lionel A. Sheldon. Charles Dilliug
bhamni, ardoncr Banks, Ernest I)eblanc, Michael
Ilbhn and W. E. Iteed. under t.'e name of " The
New Orleans and Ship Island Canl Company," to
construct a canal, with the plivilege of a tele
cr5 b and a shell road, from a priout on the left
bank of the MMibiEsippl river, in the parish of Jet
fereon, thence through the corporate lhmts of
(arrollton and Jetlerson cities an l New Orleans in
as direct route as practicableo nor::h of IBroad st;eet
to the Rigolets, near the outlet o1 Lake CAtheriue.
thence to Ship Iland.
The canal is to be at least 150 feet wide at the
surface, with a uniform depth of twelve feet
thronughout its length. The co:, lpany has the pri
vilege to widen the same to tl ree hundred feet,
with a corresponding depth of twenty-live feet:
also, to make a branch or late ral canal from the
main canal to a point at or near the river in th,
City of Jefferson, rand are reiihced to cause the
banks of eald canal to be made secure and ade
quate to avoid aity danger from overflow or
The company shall constrnct locks to connect
the main canal with the river for the paseage or

No w'ore than fifteen draw-lriJges shJlI be

The above are the main features of the charter
of 4th October, l-d.
The whole prject is imprncticnble by reason of
p bisnl o drale, sad o be-oo in cotllisilon with
vestd rights, sr ed is not worthy of notice, were
it not for the supplementary sC which passed one
branch of the Legislature, ard the object ol
whichis to build a portion of the biup Ialanl
Canal with money extracted from the people
without equivalent benefit.
The montrosity is entitled " An act to aid in the
construction of the New Orleals anrd Ship Island
Canal, fir the purpose of more effectually lerce

State, the said company shall construct and main
tain a suitable levee along the north side of their Pr
canal for a distance of five miles, and of such
length and dimensions as to prevent the city fronm
being overflowed by any crevasse occurring above
its intersection with the river, and also to prevent
the city from heing overflowed by water from
No money or lands shall be vested in sai cornm

Ttle above enm-narv extrart of the orIlginal ,i
charter, ard a of the dditional act, being suff0ieont I
to explain the whole scheme, we will now ex
anire tLe rii ct in its derails, as far as thei in c
tereats of our cmmnnity are concernedl.

made the recipient of the unpaid drainage tax, an -

in presence of the above figures, you can per- a

SThis clause must have been inserted solely for
the pnrpose of deceiving an unguarded publ:t,
who had suffered so much from the late over
t flow. (which could have been prevented at a cost
of $5(,0.) and make thbm believe that the pr,
f posed relief is equal to the remuneration granted
n to the company.
t In fact, there was no revon for Introloucing
this clause, for a similar L It more ade-llate pro

New Oreas, Feb. 3, 1SW
The decision by the Supreme Court reon ered 9
yesterday, verifying the constitutionality of th cli
oe per cent. tax on real estate, when it becamr a'
known, had a depressing effect upon the market ch
and we wou!d not be surprised if during the nex st
week or ten days there were to be a considera- of
ble decline in prices. This tax will certainly bear of
heavily tpon those real estate owners whose di
properties have not been productive : and hun- Ot
dreds of them will be forced to sell in consequenc. bi
of Inability to pay it. to
It Las particularly proved unfortunate for those to
who put their trust in the idea that they could fo
prove the law unconstitutional and refused to pay o0
their taxes. They will not onty have to pay the dl
tax, but twenty per cent. additional, besides a
slate of the expenses of the litigation. It witl st
thus be seen that certain prominent members of B
*the Property Holders' Association, who paid the E
tax while they were combating the law, proved
that they did not allow their belief in their ability e:
to defeat it to entice them into taking extra risks. E.
It is certainly deplorable that the majority of
these who were nfinfluenced by them into entering 61
into the suit were not equally as provident.
We sircerely hope that in carrying the law into
effect, the officers of the State will be as indol at
gent as possible towards the people, for measures
which have the effect to rain a large body of the v
pcpclatlon of a 'tate can never result otherwise la
than disastrocsly to i:s interests in the end, no c
matter if it should afford a momentary relief. S
Those who supported the measure in the belief f
that it would force persons who were holdiog I1
on to large bodies of real estate with the hope q
that prices would evertually rise to a very high 4
figure to sell, and by thos putting great q antities b
on the market at once, force down the price, may i
yet be disappointed, as the exoerience of the last F
year has given a greater confidence than was ever
before felt (sinca the war) in the advisabl'ity of d
investments In our lands, and the present depres- I
asion cannot be other than temporary.
Plantatiors and farms, as wdill be seen by the
sales at auction during the past three monh,, h
have stead;ly increased in value, while the de- a
mand for them is daily growing greater : and in
the matter of city property, we have noticed on E
several occasions prices refused which would f
have been gladly taken a year ago.
Even with this additional tax, productive prop- .
erties, both in the city and country net to their "
proprietors a greater interest than in almost any d
other country, or we are much mistaken. City a
property which will yield to the owner from six
to seven per cent. clear income, and plantations
ard farms which bring a revenue of eight and ten r
per cent., must always find ready takers. iut c
persons who hold lands, neither to cultivate nor f
to rent-only with a view to speculation, may fld
this one per cent. a hard load added to that they a
already have. Still, as these people cannot be a
said to be of any benefit to the State, and may be, a
as acme argue, an injury, their complaints ctnnot
uriect prices. It these parties are forced to sell,
we hope that they will at least cut their proper.
ties up into small farms or lots, for it is to such a
divisico of large estates that we must look for our
greatest source of wealth in the future.
There are several valuable pieces of property to
be sold next Saturday to which we would direct
the attention of those who are looking to real es
tate for an investment. The following by Messrs.

a further reduction in quotations of Gold and Ex
change. The demand has ben of a very re
strieted character from the opening to the close
of business, and the offering supply, whieh was
of but limited extent at best, has been further
diminished by the withdrawal of lists from sale.
owing to the heavy concessions demanded
by buyers. In fact the total movement amounted
