Improvement or Westers Rivers Mr. Seals.
mla has reported a bill la the United States Senate, m .k
ing appropriations f.r the lmprovement.Jby contract, ot
the Mississippi, Mlssoori, Obio and Arkansas rivers.
The bill proposes to have the Western rivers divided
into convenient sections, and then advertise by contract
for the removal pf all obstructions to the navigation of
each section, whether from stumps, snags, sunken wrecks,
rocks, legs, or ot whatever nature, either ia the main
channel ot the river or in the channels lesding to the va
rious ports and landings. It provides that so money
shall be pall oa any contract until tbe entire work under
taken shall be cemtf eted and inspected by sultsble oncers
of tbe topog aphlcal corps of engineers. The bl'l Includes
various appropriations, wucu do not exceed $150,000 per
annum ror are years, formal sum tne committee have
ascertained that contracts could certainly be made, by
which all these Western rivers could be kept entirely clear
of th obstructions at present so destructive to life and
propertt. At tbe eadof fire years, when these rivers are
to be delivered up to the Government entirely free from
obstructions, a continuous appropriation of one-third of
that sum wHl keep them dear.

Mb. C MciiER, Optician Dear Sir: The glasses you
have prepared for me exceed lndistlactness aad brilliancy
of vision any I have ever ased. The principle ot a foens
accommodated to eyry motion of the eye, is Invaluable,
as It preveatsfatl.no to the organ, and does not Impair
vision. The beautiful transparency of the glass, with 1U
great hardneas, give a durability which la Invaluable toJJ
those having a constant demand for them.
These improvemeata are recommendation for their csa ."'-
highly meriting pnblic patronage. -
Very respectfaUy, your obedient servant,
