discussion the following preamble and resolutions

hereby tendered to His Majesty for tbe noble stand

Messrs. Kuaea, Sheldon, Green, Poll, and Kcknka

to convene on Sunday evening next at Kaumakapili

rFrom the London Post, June 2s.
The geographical position of France, although in
many respects highly favored, is such a. to entail
upon large districts of tbe country a liability to be
suddenly deluged by the overflow of flooded rivers.
At Toulouse such inundation have occurred every
twenty years or, at least, 1815, 1S35 and 1S5S al
though never before to the same extant as at present,
or with the ealamitoua consequences to life and pro
perty which we are now called upon to record. Ia
1654 the whole valley of the Rhone, was visited in a
similar manner. Tbe streets of Lyons were for many
days traversed by boats, and notooly trees and rattle,
but bridges, churches, houses, even whole villages
were swept away, and grrtt number of people were
either drowned or buried amid fallen ruins. But
when compared with the inundation which has now
we hope subsided, all others sink into com parotide
insignificance. A week ago tee-day, our correspondent
tells us, the River Gsronne, at Toulouse, was unusu
ally high, but no serious danger was apprehended,
and no precautionary measure, were taken. On
W ednesday tbe waters rose rapidly, and by ten o'clock
in the morning tbey had reached the level of the
flood at 1855. At two o'clock two arches of a bridca
and twenty houses were swert away, and the floating
swiastning baths and lavatories were torn from there
moorings sod hurried down the torrent. At fire the
water overflowed the parapet which protects the popu
lous quarter of St. Cyprian ; at six it was ten feet deep
in tbe streets, and before night thin quarter was cut off
from ibe rest of the town, the three bridges of com
munication being destroyed. All night the crash of
falling bouses and
the cries AsTS bhriees or SrrFERERS
Wore heard. On Thursday the flood began to abate,
and the water had fallen six feet hy tbe evening. In
the town of Toulouse alone, it is said, VUU persons
hare perished, and 20,000 are left destitate. Nearly
3,000 bunfeR hj. t fa Her., ind tbe destruction of pre
1'crtv if roughly estimated at from 12,000,000 iterl
iug. The whole valley of the Garonne if said to re
semble a v aat lake, covered with fragments of the
ruins of tbe town, as well as with wreck brought down
from higher districts, and dotted with corpses, some
of them wearing she costume of places twenty leagues
Although it is upon this particular district that
the calamity has fallen with the greatest force, yet
THE NEIGHBOR! IfG DEPART KJTT8
Hare also been terrible sufferers. In Aude the crops
hare been extensively destroyed. At Bagncres dc
Bigorre tbe Adour bas carried away bridges and
cottages. At Verdun (Ariege) more than fifty houses
bare fallen, and many persons hare been drowned.
In Tarn-et-Garonne crops hare perished; and at
Xenouillet, a Tillage six kilometres frem Toalouse,
mly three houses out of four hundred are left standing.
The railway between Bordeaux and Toulouse, is cut
n a doien places, and the whole country i. submerged.
The power of tbe surrounding districts to assist the
;reateat s offerer is crippled by their own losses,
nd the communication with distant parts uf the
ountry is greatly impeded. It is doubtful whether
be description of what has actually happened will
nclude eren the greater part of the calamity, As
be waters recede a surface saturated with moisture
be exposed, and this surface will be strewn with
he corpses of men and animals in erery stage of
Composition. Exposed to tbe exhalations hence
rising there will be a large population reduced to
bso.ate want dependent upon charity for all the
ecessaries of life, destitute alike of clothes, of food,
f shelter, and of employment. To communities thus
ituated diseat-c comes with footsteps tbat are neither
ardy or nnncertain, and it is only by tbe most prompt
and energetic aid from external sources tbat the in
habitants of Toulouse can be sared from eren greater
ills, if sueh be possible, than those which hare already
TBI CACHE OF THE CA LAV ITT.
In order to form an idea of tha causes of tbe inun
dation it is only necessary to glance ut tbe physical
;eography of the departments in which it bas occurred.
fher lie on the northern, slopes of the Pyrcneos, and
are intersected by nuineroa and rapid rirers, of which
at least four unite to form the Uarunne before it
reaches Toulouse. There has been heary and con
tinuous rain orcr the whole of tbe mountain range,
and a fall of snow at Lus. where it would directly
well the head waters of the Garonne. It is said that
at least a contributory cause is furnished by the great
destruction of timber in the district during the last
eentury. Trees not only absorb water largely from
the soil, but they also prevent the surface from being
baked and hardened by tbe son. and they check the
rapidity and abruptness with which rain would other
wise reach the ground. When it falls unimpeded
upon dry and barren hillsides, it will run from them
almost as freely as from tbe slooping roofs of bouses,
and a few hours will carry the water of the mountain
storm to swell the volume of tbe nearest rirer. It
is easy to be wise after the event : but in a district so
situated there is great room for measures of preren
tion, and the riparian authorities, whoever they may
be, should be intrusted with powers commensurate to
the magnitude of the recurring erils, which, by wise
precautions, they might do much to mitigate or avert.
Eren the tiny floods which sometimes occur in this
country are often greatly aggrarated by local neglect,
by some silting up of the ehannel of a stream, or by
some ill-placed bridge, which forms an obstacle to tbe
passage of an unusual body of water. In rirers which
are liable to be swollen by mountain torrents the
channels should be made the objects of unceasing
solicitude, and tbe span and construction of bridges
should bo determined by other than purely local considerations.

Tnx Eucaltptcs. The California HortiailtKrid,
has tbe following paragraph regarding this tree:
As it ad ra u ccs in its growth the lower limbs seen
to shed naturally ; and Us bablt Is to grow Tery tall,
which makes it desirable to cut off to a certain ex
tent Its top. When this is done, it then throws out
three or four limbs, which extend up at a great
length aad almost pcr)eudicularly, in a straggling
manner, and as single trees are not handsome or at
tractive to tbc eye. Tbi is no detriment to it for
groves or forests, but does not make It suitable near
dwellings orou roadsides. Althoojrh tbey arc plant
ing thip Australian gnm tree ao much in tte wanner
countries of Europe (chiefly we suppose for its
health-giving quelit.es.) as well as in California, in
promenades, and pnblic and private gardens in
fact, it seems making the tour of the world we con
fess, as fur as wc have noticed It here aa a single tree,
we csnnot regard it as a beantifol one, except when
quite young, ur when it is about three or four yeara
'While there is much truth in the remarks of the
HortimUuriMt. yet it must be conceded that the
Eucalyptus is quite as ornamental as are the pines,
most of which shed their lower limbs In the aame
manner as do the Eocaly ptus tree. The latter are
much improved by trimming or rather by heading;
down, which renders them more busby and orna
mental. In some localities, where not very windy,
tbey become a really handsome tree.
