The peoplo of Arkansas aud West. Louisiana
arc thoroughly alarmed at the pi eject of the
Mississippi Kiver Commission aud of the disas
trous consequences that it is predicted will re
sult if it is carried out. The people of Chicot
Lending recently held a meeting aaid voted to
employ the best legal taleut to represent before
tlio Jkivcr Commission the danger to the coun
try that will follow their consummr-.iion of this
work of fencing in the waters. Tim Hon. J. S.
AVhitaker has been selected by the Chicot peo
ple, and his letter of instructions from them
says that he is required to meet the lliver
Commission and urge that they commence
work west of the river at the hills above Ar
kansas City and work down, iusttsad of com
moneing at Red Kiver and working up. "Unless
this is done the amount of means the commis
sion has alloted to the west side will be ex
hausted before the Arkansas lin e is reached.
This will be no protection to Louisiana, as all
the streams below Arkansas Kivr take their
rise in Chicot and Desha countius. To begin
at Ked Kiver and come up will only force tho
water on Louisiana. There is no feasible reason
for the plan of beginning below, while the reas
ons for beginning above are'unanswerable.
A summary of tho material wealth of tho
United States, showing the increase during the
last six or eight decades, exhibits gratifying
results. The wealth, of the inlitibitants is esti
mated at $49,S00,000,00Ql. or Jiciirlj'OOO per
capita. The items of principal value are in
houses, $13,300,000,000; farms, $9,(flo.000,000 ;
manufactures, $5,055,000,000; while we havo
$720,000,000 worth of bullion and $315,000,000
in shipping. Tho capital outlay on the 93,G7l
miles of railway is estimated at $5,205,000,000
Tho farmers have very materially added to the
general prosperity, the acreage tilled having in
creased from about -J5,000,000 in ISiO to nearly
200,000,000 in 1SS0, and they havo furnished
2,613,000,000 bushels of grain, worth about
$2,000,000,000. and $1,20,000,000 worth of cat
tle for the food of mankind. Although the
tonnage of American shipping has declined
from 5,354,000 tons in 16G0 to -1.293,000 in 1SH0,
yet the foreign trade has doubled in that time.
Our imports in 1SS0 having been worth $GG3,
000,000 and the exports $530,000,000, being a
foreign commerce of $30 for each man, woman,
and child in the United States during the year.
The first mint in the United States was es
tablished in Boston in the year 1G52. It was
established to coin silver and keep it in circu
lation, but, as it was a breach of the royal, pre
rogative to coin money, its coins shillings, six
pences, and three penccs were pro-dated. It
was soon closed by orders from England; but,
notwithstanding them, it was again lcrsed, in
spite of prohibition by the mother country, in
3675. It may be well to say here that i.he issue
of mediums of exchange by the colon? js in any
form, metalic or p.icr. wero from first to last
opposed by Great Britain, and conseq nently by
tbe governors of the colonies who. were ap
pointed by the British government.

The Meteor, a novelty in the steamship line,
was launched at Xyack, New York, recently.
It is intended for ocean navigation and is the
first vessel of the kind err built. Having :i
domed deck and no masts, it is contended that
this stylo of vessels will prove the fastost over
Iwill. The Meteor is exyccled to make twenty
ono miles an hour. Sho will make her first

The Cincinnati underwriters have decided
to advance the rates of insurance on account of
the defective hose used by the fire departments.
It seems that there is no money in the munici

The attention of the Agricultural Bureau has
bocn drawn to the statistics of the cultivation
of rice in the United Slates ill 1 SSI, as given
before the Tariff Commission at Savannah
Monday, and the following facts and comments
have Iwen elicited: The number of acres re
ported in rice in the United States by the cen
sus of 3 S.S0 '.vas 171,173, the number of pounds
3roduced, 310,131,373 of clean rice an average
product of ChU pounds per acre. The acreage
of Georgia was 31,973, which is about one-fifth
of the total urea in rice. South Carolina had
78,388 acres and produced 52,077,515 pounds, or
nearly half of tho total production of the
Unircd States. Louisiana'had nearly as much
:4S fiuoigia in the census year. The number of
cuith r,tors is far loss than the number of acres,

greater than that of the previous year.

According to the annual statement prepared
by the Commercial and Financial Chronicle the
cotton crop for the twelve raonths ending with
August is considerably less than that for cither
of the two preceding seas ins. Tho yield was
5.-135,815 bales in l.l-?2, G,5S9,329 in"3SS0-Sl,
and 5,757,397 in 3S79-S0. The average weight
of the bales is also less 'ov the last than for
either of the two preceding crops, being 473.07
pounds in lSSl-2, 4S5.SS in 1SS0-S1, and 4S1.53
in 3S79-S0. In aggregate weight the produc
tion of the past year is 19.24 per cent, less than
that of tho preceding 'season. Tho Chronicle's
figures show a steady increase in the amount
of cotton manufacture d in the South. In 1S79
S0 the amount consumed by Southern mills was
179,000 bales, in tho following year it was 205,
000 and in the season just closed it reached
238.000. This indicates an encouraging growth
of the Southern manufacturing industry.
Plowing for winter wheat in Kansas is all
done, and a good deal has been sown this
month. The hcav r crop of this year and its
excellent quality Ibr seed will stimulate the
farmers to put in :i large acreage. Owing to
low prices fanners aro holding back their
wheat, but the woHc of threshing is vigorously
progressing. The agricultural exhibit at the
district, and country lairs was never before
equaled in quality or size. The corn crop is
now well matured beyond any possible danger
from early frosts. Many fields will yield from
eighty to a hundred bushels per acre. Cattle
aud sheep are in fine condition, and aro well
prepared for wintering. Grass has been un

other sections of thetgreat corn belt of Central
Uluois report serious damage from frost to corn,
especially in lowland regions. The damage is
estimated at ten per cent.
The differences hatwecn the locomotive en
gineers on the Gould railroads and tho officials
of that system havo been settled. Tho follow
ing schedule of wages was agreed upon : 3
cents por mile for passenger engineers and 4
cents per mile for freight engineers, 100 miles
or less to constitute a day's work, and fill over
100 miles to bo pzjd for at tho samo rato. En
gineers running pushers to receive' $90 per
month, switch engineers $30 per month, all
detentions over two hours to bo paid for at tho
rato of 35 cents per hour. These terms aro
somewhat under tho original demands, but tho
engineers seeci to be very well satisfied with
them. It was further agreed that no engineer
shall be discharged without a fair and impar
tial investigation, provided the engineer first
submits his case in writing to the proper offi
cers of his road, and if found innocent, he is to
receive half pay for tho time lost during tho
