ntVEIt AND WEATHER.
The river last evening was 19 feet 3
3- 5 inches on thu gauge, having risen 1
4- 6 inches during the previous 2t hours.
The weather is clear and mild.
The swell In the Ohio is checking tho
current of the Mississippi a little, hut
not sufllclently yet to stop the wah in
the bend back of the city. We visited It
again day befora yesterday and saw the
bank still rolling Into thu river at an ugly
rate. While wo were there the City of
Vlcksburg passed up, and we witched
tho eflect of her swells on
tho shore. She was compelled to run
close in to land, as the channel Is narrow, i
aud after she passed there was a plainly
marked fresh shore cutclofc to tho wa
ter's edge and streams ol sand ran down
the bank in consequence. A great many
people ask what has caused the Missis
sippi to take such a stubborn set into tho
Illinois shore this year, when
it ran ou tho Missouri side al that
point for so many years pasts We have
a theory and we propose lo veutiiato it,
and moreover, wo use Inclined to be
lieve, that all pilots will agree that our
theory is correct. If it Is, government
ought certainly to take Immediate steps
to correct th wrong aud protect-tho city.
It will bu reuwmbered by pilots that
yearn ago, when Cairo was threatened as
it is uow, tho channel came uown tuo
Missouri shore ut Devil's Island, just
uhnvu Cane Girardeau, and after the
channel changed to the Illinois shore at
that point thu channel dunged
to tho Missouri shore above Cairo, mid
Eliza tow-head was formed.
Last year the government undertook the
improvement of Devil's Island, and by n
dam at the head and a dyke at lh foot

railroad wa-swallowed up, as will the
whole city If something Is not done to
check If. The lower the stajfe of water
the more forcible wilL be the weight of
water thrown against this point, anil
there Is no hope ot a change until the
river raises sulllcicntly to How over the
government works at Devil's Island, 'iim
only way to got out of this dilemma is to
build a stone dyke near the foot ot
Abel's tow-head large enough to throw
the current away from the shore, and u
the government has.accordlng to our Urui
belief, brought thlsevll upon us, It should
Immediately take steps to build thu dyke
and thus remove it. Our
government is "dweet"on river improve

ness, it would not look well to allow a

out by a- dam and dyke th-it were con
structed by government engineers.
