Proerrcs" ortlic Creat Jctly Works
at I lie .tluulh of the Mikssissippl.
On .lannary 15. 1676, the jetty woTfcs con
BlrocUHl umier llie United .States grant, made to
Mr. James li. Kada ou March 3 Istt, bad been sa
far extended into the eea that the almost com
plete control of tbe river discharge had been ac
complished through a distance of 1 ,lJ miles from
the land's end, and ailhiu 2.500 feet of tbe crest
of the bar.
Through the extent of this mile and a half, the
river current had swept oat 1 ,2ti.'),222 cubic yards
of the baron December 25. IST5. nod the removal
by the river is progressing at the rate of about
30.000 cubic yards per day ; 2 000,000 yards more
will have to te scoured away before 20 leet depth
of water is secured ncro63 the bar.
The works of each line of jetty are partially
constructed ont beyond tbe crei-t of the bar to
the full distance tliev are intended to be boilt.
and the work on this portion of the jetties is being
pushed with the utmost vigor, over 25 000 cubic
yards of willow mattress work having been con
structed and securely placed in position, and
ballasted with stone, wtthiu 1 he last 30 days the
total amount laid thus lar being about 125,000
cubic yards. The construction of 20.000 addi
tional yards is all that is now required to build
the jetties up above mean low tide, ami out to
the crest of the bar. 10.500 leet from the land's
end at the mouth ol the .Mississippi.
It is confidently believed that a sufficient
amount of materia! is now in place, if no mote
wink were done, to insure a depth of 20 feet of
w iteracros3 the bur, within three or four months.
One remarkable feature, thus far developed, is
the deepeniog of the water between the incom
plete jetties on the outer slope of tbe bar, which
is doubtless caused by tbe tidal action that is now
partially controlled by the jelly wotks beyond
th crest. This deepening clearly shows how
groundless are the fears that the effect of the
jetties would simply be to pile out the excavated
material on the outer slope of tbe bar. The fact
that the crest ol the bur has not deepened, not
withstanding the immense amount of material ex
cavated from above it. between the lines of the
jetties, is in exnet accordance with the theory
upon which Mr. Erdl has based Lis application of
of the jetty system to the improvement of the
mouth of the Mississippi.
Those predicting the failure ol the system have
constantly asserted that the chief part ol the sedi
mentary mutter of the river was pushed out to
sea, on the bottom, by the action of the current :
while Mr. Kuds has persistently declared that this
was a grave error, and that these matters were
utmost w holly borna to the sea suspended in the
water of the river, and that, the more rapid the
current, the greuter would be the amount of ma
te" ial held by it in suspension ; and hence an in
crease of careen t above the normal in any part of
the river, flowimr over u strictly alluvial bed.
would cause the water to take up an additional
i h i oi tins matter, which it wouxi reiaiu i is eus
pension so lot.g us the velocity of current was
maintained ; and when thus charged, it would be
simply impossible for it to take op any load or
produce any additional scouring. The current re
ceives its first acceleration at the upper end of
Ihe jetty works, and here it first becomes charged
with the surplus load. It receives no Inrther ac
celeration in its passagd over the crest of the bar
(owing to the incompleteness of the work there.)
over which it escapes laterally. The enlargement
produced by tha excavation gradually reduces the
current, whore it occurs, by the enlargement of
the channel, and the acceleration and extra load
ing of the water then takes place lower down and
nearer tbe crest of the bar. The effect of this is
to shorten up the base of the bar, and to deepen
the channel above it, before the crest is reduced.
The original crest of the bar was a plateau 3,
500 feet wide, over which an average depth of
7'. j feet of water could be found, between the
parallel lines of the jetties, which are placed 1000
feet asunder. This plateau is now reduced to a
width of less than COO feet, and will be gradually
reduced to nothing, before the deepening of the
bar crest will begin to take place. As the enr- j
rent is qnite as rapid now across the crest of the
bar as it is between tbe completed parts of tbe
jellies, it is evident that, if the sedimentary mut- ;
ters of the river were pushed along the bottom
by the current, the deposits which are most ele
vated, like the summit of the bar, would be the
first to bo pushed off. and piled up beyond the
bar crest, in the sea water beneath the river dis- ;
charge, or in what ha? been termed the "dead
Ogle." Tbe base of the bar on the 20 feet line i
of depth was nearly 10.000 feet long when the jet- I
ties were commenced. This base I1113 been short- j
cned still more than the plnteau forming the bar i
summit, and is now only about b.Utl leet long
measured in the direction of tbe jetties. &tii
Page's remarks were extempore and brief. He
forcibly presented several of the principal point
in favor ot reciprocity. Among other things bo
argued that if the treaty were not ratified we
should lose tbe carrying trade between San Frsn:
cisco and the islands in less than a year.

At the President's reception and at other pla
ces daring the week a perfect Golconda of the
precioos gems, and a ship load of the richest silks,
velvets, and lacea, have been unfolded to oar view.
Among ibe diamonds worthy ol especial notice,
those of Mrs. Jnstice Miller have been already
mentioned. For several seasons she had the
gratification of knowing that she possessed the
finest diamonds of any American lady in Wash
ington Society, with the exception possibly of
Mrs. Fish, who never wears a great number at one
time. Mrs. Bridges, the heautilul young wife of
the Pennsylvania millionaire, who was in Wash
ington last winter, wore one of the most magnifi
cent necklaces of solitare diamonds ever seen,
perhaps, upon any lady iu the country, with large
solitare earrings to match. Among other of our
own ladies possessed of these precious gems, large
and rich enough to represent a fortune, aro Mrs.
John C. Xew of Indiana, a gentle, modest aud
altogether charming lady ; Madame Bouligny, one
of our first society ladies, as well as a leader
among oor literati; Mrs. Grant and her pretty
daughter-in-law ; Mtt. Potter Puluier of Chicago,
whose extreme beauty needs no foreign uid of
ornament, but whose extreme wealth must needs
show itself to the world in the richest of gems,
velvets and laces ; Mrs. Ronalds of New York,
whose diamonds are very noticeable; Madame
Bergman ; Madame the Baroness de Overbeck,
daughter of Mrs. Dahlgren ; and Madume Ileger
inan. the lovely American brido of tbe Danish
Among foreign ladies Madame Botges wears
a magnificent bouquet de corsage of diamonds and
rubies, exceedingly beautiful, together with ear
rings and necklaces of the same priceless stones.
Madame Mantilla also wore exquisile diamonds
at the late ('residential levee, among which is a
bouquet de corsage as delicate as gossamer, bead
ed wilh dew drops. Mrs. Fish's aigrette for the
hair, which she generally wears ul the foot of her
Illumes, has the same delicate, yet brilliant effect.
Mrs. Gore Jones, Madame Mariscal. Madame
Sant Anna. Countess Hoyos, and a great many
other ladies seen in society during the season, are
possessors of these lovely gems, which always
iook to tbe writer like dew drops petrified wilh
the sunlight in their bosoms.

HUNT'S REMEDY. THo Fine Iron
Such a sight may never be seen in Detroit
again twelve diamond pins artistically arrang
ed on a white card board twelve glittering,
glistening, sparkling, resplendent diamonds, not
one of which would have looked out of place on
the shirt-front of Duke Alexis.
The diamond merchant was not a young man ;
neither was he old and broken down. He was just
about old enough to sell diamonds and just
about seedy enough to make folks believe he
would discount a thousand dollars on each pre
cious stone for the sako of obtaining cash down.
He first tackled the special policeman at the
Central depot. He held up the card, flashing
the twelve diamouds in tbe officers eyes, aud
sweetly said :
" Yoo are a noble-looking man. I've visited
the principal cities of Kurope mid Africa, and I
never saw u more noble-looking officer than you
There is only one thing lacking you should have
one of these diamonds.''
" Can't afford it," replied the officer, feeling
to see if the lone Iwo-doilar- bill in his watch
pocket was safe.
" These diamonds aro being soil by all first
class jewellers at 8500 each," whispered lho Dttus,
"but I'll tell you what I'll do. I look litem on
chattel mortgage, and I'll let you hare oue for
twenty. five dollars."
Snide! replied the officer, as he examined
' Snide I Dear me ! but I thought you were
a keen, sharp fellow. Go wilh me to a jeweller,
and if he denies that ihese are diamonds of the
first water I'll give you the whole twelve."
The officer couldn't buy. The man came down
to five dollars, and at last dropped to two, but it
was Saturday, and policeman loves chicken for his
Sunday dinner. There were u great many back
men around the depot. The stranger went out
among them, selected ono whose maku-up betok
ened good taste, and drawing him uway Irom the
rest he asked :
" You wouldn't go back on a poor mao, would
" Xover." wa3 tbe earnest reply.
" Here's some diamonds 1 stole in Paris,"
whispered lho stranger as he pulled out the card.
" I'm hard-up, and will sell one or two.''
Tho liackinan guzed at the jewels for half a
minute, bunded them back, and began to un
button his overcoat.
" You have had a good bringing up." whisper
ed the stranger, " and you can wear one of these
diamonds and be consistent. There are men in
I'll hurt you if you don't go away !" growled
As I said, I stole these diamonds in Paris,

From an extended articlo on journalism in tbe
New York Sun we extract tlic following :
Assuming lhat the firl duily paper wasetarted
about the jear 1700, we Gnd lhat the amazing
pn.giess achieved haa heon lho work of bat five
generations. No olher inveution, or industry,
has ever advanced at each a speed. Instead of
the minimum of 500 copies for a paper 175 years
opo, we now have several thousand copies as the
niitiimntn under which no paper can possibly live,
and we begin to consider 100,000 copies aa mere
ly a large, though by no means ihe highest cir
culation. Aod il must be borne in mind that
these figures have been reached, notwithstanding
the increase iu the number ol papers. In 1702,
Ihe Daily Cuurant was the only daily paper in
London, with a circulation of 500 copies. To-day,
there are ten leadiug papers (not to speak of the
smaller suburban sheets) with a total circulation
exceeding 600 000 a day. 'i bis progress has, how
ever, been particularly striking in the last fifty
years. The stamp returns show that the circula
tion of the London Times, for instance, increased
as follows; 1834,10,000 copies; 1844. 23.000 :
1854, 51 650. During tbe Crimean war it reached
70.000, and lemained for several years stationary
at that Sgare, with u tendency to decline under
the pressure of the excellent penny papers which
had lately been brought lo life. Since the aboli
tion of tho stamp it has become more diffijult to
ascertaiu the exact circulation of any of the pa
pers. But it is generally believed that tbe Times
does not issna at ibe preseut lime more than CO.
000 a day. The circulation of tho olher leadthg
Ixmdon papers is. eo far as I was uble to ascer
tain, nntil recentlv as follows : Daily Telegraph,
160.000; Kcho, 150.000: Daily News. 9(1,000 ;
.Standard, morning edition, 40,000 ; evening edi
It must be remarked, however, that lho circu
lation of both the Telegraph and the Kcho is rai l
to be declining. The great improvement which
has taken place wilhina tew years in the manage
ment of the Daily News, has drawn off a large
number of rearlnrs from the Telegraph, while the
Kcho lost its reputation with tbe recent change of
proprietorship, when il fell into tbe bands ol Al
bert Grant, the London Jay Gould. Add to tha
above Ggurcj thosa which represent the circula
tion of tho Morniug Advertiser, Morning Dost,
IV: Mall Gazette and Globe, aud we obtain a
total of something like 610,000 copies for ten dai
ly papers of London.
Tbe number of daily papers of Paris is roach
larger than that of London, and the circulation of
every one of them accordingly much more limi
ted. Paris bas only one paper which can boast
of a cirealation of 130,000 copies, and that is Le
I'etit Journal, a miniature or.e-ceut sheet, of
which the chief attractions are tbe novels daily
roo tbrough its feuilltton. Second to"the Petit
Joornal stands the Figaro, wilb ao edition ol
70,000. None of tbe other Paris papers exceeds
a circulation of 25 000, wbile some of them barely
reach 2.000. It baa been calculated, however,
that the total of various newspaper sheets daily
tisued in Paris approaches very closely to 500,
000 wbicb would make a larger pro rata on her
11.000.000 inhabitants than tbe GO00OO sheets
make on tba 3 000.000 inhabitants of Lou Jon.
In all other European countries tbe newspaper
circulation is far below tbe above figures. There
is not s paper in Germany with the exception of
tbe Ailgenteine Zeiloog of Augeburg, wbicb has
yet reached an edition of 40.000. In Russia, 25,
000 is said to be tbe largest figure which the
Moscow Gazette tod tbe St. Petersburg Gazelle
bave ever attained, la Italy and Spaio 5.000
copies is considered a Urge circulation, and the
most popular paper of tbe former country, Opini-
tlirouoh Central Asia. At a
peotrraphers recently held. Col. Uogdanowilz ex
plained sume of the details of the road, which, it
la expected, will overcome one of Ihe greatest ob
stacles to the extension ol civilizttinn, namely,
the separation til a large part of Asia from Europe,
by vast deserts, iu which no means of transit but
a railroad, could be ol any use. A railroad alone
can develop the resources of the many lands
through which it would pas ; and as the mineral
wealth ol Hiberia and lho Ural nioiintnins 19 well
known, ihe exploration and mining of these re
gions would be encouragod, and their resources
It is proposed thai tho rnad shall s'.art from

rection of Treumen and Oni?k at Ibe Irtish. cross
Ihe river and proceed by wuy of Katnsk to Teinet
on the Tom. a branch of the Obi, and cross the
river. Tum.-k is the principal centre-of commerce
of central Siberia ; thence the road will run di
rectly to Irkutsh at Luke Baikal. Tbencc to
pass to the frontier of China, and thence it is no
longer an exclusively Russian, but an internation
al undertaking. And here, also, the only serious
engineering difficulties commence, at the moun
tain range of Kinghan. which in it northern part,
is crossed by the Amoor river. This range is
the greatest obstacle, and it will be necessary to
pass by the Mantchooria. and to luy lho road
from Baikal lo Verhneoudinsk. through the val
ley of the Selenga. Then th ebest route to reach
Pekio, the capital of China, near the Yellow Sea
haa been found to be that of Tehita and Dolou
nor. At tiie southern end, the famous great wail
will be crossed, it already lies in rnitis in a great
many places. The wholo distance from Nijin
Novgorod to Pekin will he 4.500 miles, of which
2,800 rnn through Russian territory.
When this plan is closely examined, according
to known topographical data, (he apparent diffi
culties dwindle down to nothing wheu compare
to those encountered in the western section of
our Pacific railroad. In the section from Tomsk
to Luke Baikal, the country is rolling and inter
spersed with rivers and streams : bnl the great

Lutlerell s speech on tbe Hawaiian treaty was
very comprehensive in range. After enlarging
on the natural, political and naval advantages to
be derived from the treaty, and quoting General
Hchofield, Admiral Porlpr. Secretary Brietow,
Clay and others in support of bis assertions, be
contended that in a purely commercial point tf
view it would be a great benefit, especially to the
I'acific coast. Tbe people there wanted the
promised outlet for their surplus products and
mannfactnres, and in return tbe laboring classes

tariff j ib and various other things supported by
