THE DAY'S DOIHQS
MORKISO. Legislature meets aa usual at 10
EHGINfiEMNG OF TO-DAY-
In our filet by tUo last mails, we
.observe- the wonderful plans lor
"eh-iuging the face of nature now be-
i.i;r tarried on or proposed to be
filed on. About two mouths ago,
tuc French Ministry appointed a
committee of political and scientific
men of mark, M. do LcsBcps,
General Chnuzy, '&c, to study a
plan for tho creation of an inland
tea in tho south of Algeria, nnd
destined to communicate- with the
Mediterranean, by means of a chan
ncl opening into tho liay of Ca
For tbis immense undertaking the
OD'ineers will avail themselves of
the great natural btisins. now com
pletely dried up, but which at a
period known to history, and com
parativcly modern, were formerly
salt lakes fed by the waters of the sea.
Tho utility of this project, is great,
whether wo look upon this inland sea
as an almost impassable barrier,
between Algeria and Tunis, and the
Arabs of the Desert, or whether we
look u,)on it as a great maritime
highway, opening up, the interior of
tho Africau continent. Tho opera
tions for cutting through tho Isthmus
of Corinth by a canal proposed by
General Tuit, (a Hungarian, uow
aide-de-camp to the King of Italy,)
began on the 4th of May, in the
presenceof their Majesties tho King
ana uucen ol urcocb. iuo en
gineers have adopted .the line
laid down by Nero for a length
of rather more than four miles from
one sea to the other. Tho canal will
measure tho same breadth as the
Suez canal, about 78 fcctS but it
will be. deeper than the Suez 26 feet
instead of 21 feet. It is thought tho
work will not take more than three
or four years. By that time the
Panama canal will have made good
progress. And it is this canal
wntcu interests us m ltawau more
than any other. When it is open
communication with Europe and the
Eastern States will be much facili
tatcd and our Portuguese im
migrants will ,w brought here at
a much more rapid rate than
now. All these considerations
cause u to ieuec tliat our
Government should take stupa to
nave our interests in it acknowledged.
These grand undertakings are hardly
begun, and already there is talk of
opening a new canal across the isth
rou which separates the Indian
Ocean from thf Gulf of Siam. The
author of the project, M. Dm, in a
very interesting and widely-read
J.nper.upon the Peninsula of Malacca
nims up tho profits, which would
i.cVrue to the charehohWrs from the
piercing of the iMhmu. What, it
nil events, cannot he denied, is the
growing value of the groat ports of
l.ninn, uociiiu-i;uiiia and Japan.
We have much regret in record
iog the departimt of Dr. Itcthunc
McCartuc by the steamer on Mon
f.or last. He came here, nndor an
si'snost official promise that his ser
t i.-cs would be required as a Govern'
i.nuit agent and translator for the
' nincse, about- scwu weeks ago;
;t,tid during that time gained the r
p'r,t and t'Steem of those who came
i!i contact with him. i!c has left
inj after tbis short tojouni fecliug
tiiat the enpourugoinent to btny
afforded, luin by the Government
was ,iiBiifllciont. And , wc are of
opinion that the Government was
uuwiso in this iustnuoc in not secur
log such a medium of intluouco bet
ween them uu'd tho cm-increasing
and already-largo Chine.-.c population. J
