MISSISSIPPI RIVER SCENES.
When tho rains havo swollen its trib
utary rivors to more than thoirordiuary
voluraue, tho Mississippi is grand, tor
nuble, treacherous. Always subtle
aud eerpeut-ltktj in itu modo of stealing
upon its prey, it swallows up acres ut
uuo fell Bwoop ou ono sido; sweeping
llieill awav from thoir fr.-iil Imi.l rn
tho main land, while, on tho other, it
covers plantations with slimo. and
brokcu treo truuks and bouitbs. the
irightcncd inh&bltauts into tho aeoond
'tory of their cabins, aud drivinc tho
cattle uud swine upon high knolls to
starve, orperlmps tinally to drown.
It pierces the puny levcei which havo
cost tho Stato bordering upon it suoh
immense rums, aud iroes bubbling uud
rosriug through tho crevasse, distract
lug tho pluutere, and sending dismay
to millions of pcoplo in a single night.
If promises u lull in ono day ; on an
other it rises so suddenly that tho ad
venturous woodsmen along tho bordor
huvo scarcely time to flee. It makes a
iako of tho I'ertilo country botweeu tho
two great rivers ; it carries off hundreds
of wood-piles, which lonoly and pa
tient labor has heaped, in tho hopo
that a passiug atcamer will buy thorn
up, and thus reward a eoaion'n work.
Out of each small town on Its wertern
bauk.'fiot too carelessly by wator'a
edge, it makes a piamy V6uico, or
floats it off altogether. As tho hugo
