ON TIIK CA1H.
Capt. Kads, tho Jetty man, was on the
cars. 1 was Introduced to mm.
'01 Cairo' ho said; "I mn very fa
miliar with your llttlo city. Years ago,
when t was n member of tho HrinofKnds
& Nelson, I spent much time there, and
some ol the pleasautcst days ot my life
You know, Hallcy llarrcll, of cour.eP
01 course I knew Itallcy.
And tlicn the Captain told several anec
dotes about Cairo of the otden time and
the old Calroltcs, and wound up by
laughingly commending our friend M.
I)., of the Qaittte, for the good sense dis
played by him in seconding the nomina
tion of one Cnpt. .lames II. Kads, lor the
presidency.
Well, there may bo n much less worthy
man than thflconimon-scnscd,gray-beard-
ed,bald-hcaded and genial Eads elected to
the presidency In November next: but. If
i am not mistaken In this man, there will
be few nifii Iu our history who will die
with a moro enviable reputation. He is
now ilfty-tlvc years old, nnd Is just
bloominjr Into marked usefulness. The
great bridge-builder, the successful jetty
man, no is, I venture to predict, the mail
who, by suggestion If not by actual la
bor, will make tlie .Mississippi river out
most obedient servant by prohibiting It
Hoods from carrying destruction to airrl-
culturo In their bank-overllowliur and
now apparently irresistible currents.

OF COUltSK. '
A very conlidcut gentleman, this bald
headed engineer, but not boastful.
What he says to you ho says lu a modest,
mattcr-of-lact way, and you Immediately
assent to all he asserts. So, when he
made tlds assertion, it did not occur to
me that thu gentleman speaking was
telling mu he was about to prove hlmscll
the greatest of living civil engineers, and
I replied to him, with not a shade of
doubt In the lone of my voice : "Of
course."
CllXViaiTED.
Then he proceeded to talk "river" In
such a plain way that I became learned
on the subject without my consent, and
before wc arrived at Washington I was a
convert to the belief that Cairo, and in
deed all (he country below on the Missis
sippi, might be in tireet lilted nbovc high
water-mark that, without the construc
tion of a levee, tho whole of the Missis
sippi valley might be redeemed from
overflow and the channel supplied with
au average depth of twenty feet of water
from the Passes to CaIro,.and fifteen feet
from Cairo to St. Louts.
n astonishing assertion!" you ex
claim. ,
True.; but Capt. Kails has made It,
anil las said he will stake his reputation
upon It.
"J am',' f aid he, "absolutely conlldent
could produce this result at
about half the cost to the government of
the estimated cost of the proposed
levees."
Shall I endeavor to tell you by what
arguments ho convinced me that he can
do what ho said! To do so, life Is not
to Miort, but this letter can not be
made long enough.
UUItl'LY, iiowkvkii:
If I understood the Captain, he cl.iiins
that there are two theories of MlnUslppI
river improvement one based upon the
hilosophy of liumpluey and Abbot's
great work: "The Physics and Ilydraul
llcs of the Mississippi rlvr," and tho
other on common senso In science.
THE IIOIHIUKV TIIKOUV !
that the real bed of the Mississippi river,
upon which rest the (drifting sand-bars
mil muibbauks made by local causes is
a structure of hard blue clay, miltc un
like the present deposits of the river, and
which resist the action of the strong
current almost like marble; that, thcre-
toro the bed of the river cannot yield,
auu It the vulbdlyot the river-current be
ncrcated sulllcleiitly to uom pel an en
largement of tho channel it must bo en
larged by an increased caving of the
banks ; that, consequently, the closing
up of outlets by levees or otherwise has
tendency to raise the Hood-line, and
that the making ot outlets ha a tendency
to loner tho ilnod-llne. Hut, from the
outlet system, according to the Hum-
phrcyltcs, "no assistance In reclaiming
the alluvial region from ovcrllow can Iu-
dlclously be anticipated." Though cor-
reel in theory, no advantageous sites for
artltutat outlets exl.t.
Thus timi tim Huinplircylles claim
ing that the current cannot scour out the
uiarl, c-hard blue clay of tho river-bed.
and hat the Mlr,mw wn,w mnm

Mbmfore.thatto redeem the Missis
slppl from overflow high levies mu.t be
built from , ,o mouth of the Ohio to the
Passes. 'Hie climated cost or this work
will bo $10,000,000; and after It , Z
tho expense of keeping It rcimIl. m
amount annually to a very considerable
kUDI.
TIIK KAb.1 lllliOUV !
that the river Mows iu u bed composed ol
Us dtpiMiu, with dimensions regulated
according to lu owu uceds; thai this bed
Is deepened as the volume of water In it
is Increased, nnd elevated, or 'illicit up ns
the volumri Is decreased ; 'Ihereloro, by
reducing thu high-water channel of the
river to nu approximate uniformity of
width, thus throwing down Us slope to
tho Unit n greater volume of water with
a swifter current, tho shoals which In
terrupt Its navigation might be removed,
uniformity bo given to Its slope and
current, the caving of Us banks bo
almost entirely prevented, nnd Us high
water line bo reduced hi such degree that
levees would not be needed.
This result, the Kathtes claim, hacking
their assertion by argument that, In my
opinion, cannot be controverted, may be
obtained by a Judicious system of cut-oils
and dikes.
"l.V THIS WAV,"
said Capt. Kails, with great cmphash,
"the flood-slope can be safely and perma
nently lowered above each cut-off, the
entire alluvial balu Irom Vlcksburg
to Cairo bo lifted, as It were, nbove nil
ovcrllow, and levees in that part of the
river rendered useless. The llood-lliio at
Cairo Is tirtj'-ono or fifty-two feet nbove
the low-water line. It can bo reduced,
at not great expense, to forty feet, and
thus leave Cairo and all the rich country
nrouud It, on 'high ground.' There can
be no question of this fact, and It would
bo well for those most deeply Interested
iu the matter to ponder upon my confi
dent assertion before rejecting It, lor the
increased value that would bo given to
the territory that would he thus secured
to the uses of man can scarcely bo esti
mated." I might, with prollt to tho readers of
the Hcm.eti.v, give the Ingenious argu
ments used by the Captain to enlorce his
theory, hut the limits of this piper and
the time 1 have to spare, will not" permit
me to do so. .1. H. O.

And now It Is said that Hrlstow will
leave the cabinet within a week at ( rant's
request, and Senator Morgan will fake
his place.
Tho Nebraska legislature was opened
at Fredrlcktown at three o'clock Thurs

Tllley. I
Mlnl.-ter Schenck having resigned,
Attorney General Plerrepont, who It Is
said has always had a great desire to go
abroad, will succeed him as minister at

The friends of Speaker Kerr arc op-

that gentleman ho will not bo able to re

Kellogg denies that he telegraphed
to Washington for troops, but the popu-

A Wa-hliigton' correspondent ot the

OUR WONDERFUL PRESIDENT.

1:.yiIhiihIIoii, Inn Don't Itcmciiibrr
VVIml It IViin,
(Iecliil to the N'cw Vork HtmU )
Your correspondent has been allowed
the privilege of glancing over the presi
dent's deposition, which arrived this
evening. Us main points, not previously
communicated to any newspaper, are as
follows: When asked In regard to the
susH.'iislon of the Douglass order,
whether Habcock had ever influenced
him, ho replied that Hancock had never
taken .enough Interest in the matter. to
make him icmcinber, and although he
could not recollect that Uabcock snoku to
him on thu subject ol the suspension of
mat orucr, uu president saiu 011 cro-a-examination
that he did not know
whether Habcock had spoken to Doug
lass or not. Douglas testified that Hab
cock did. The president has never seen
anything to shake his confidence In Hab
cock. Habcock had satisfactorily ex
plained the telegrams tojthe president, af
ter his Indictment, but lie could not re
member the explanation of any particu
lar telegram, nor could he undertake to
say whut the general's explanation was.
He had forgotten It. On cross-examination
It appeared that thu president
had never seen any of the crooked tele
grams until after Kabcock'.s indictment,
though he thought he had said enough to
Habcock to warrant his telegraphing to
Joyce that he should get Ford's bonds
men to recommend hhn. Kvery one ot
the telegrams wero read to the nresident.
and he said hu had never seen or heard
of them before Habcock's Indictment, so
iii.u tie could never nayo reau tuo re
ports of the Avery trial. Tho president's
testimony on thl'' point was particularly
slgnlllcant as regards the dispatch
meaning the dispatch recommending
Magulru:
"Wis mean It. Mum."
For this telegram ho never saw. The
president. It anncared ou croes-exiimlna-
tlon, had never received the two protests
signed by Carl Schurz, D. P. Dyi r, Con
gressman Flukleubiirg and others, and
U. V. Ford, Chester it. Krum, the pres
ent counsel of the whisky ring, the
then 1. nlted Stated marshal, and C. A.
Newcomb, against the appointment of
McDonald; nor the protest signed by
Hubert Camnbell. a wealthv merchant
mid old friend ol tho president ; James
1.. icaunaii una oilier prominent ami
highly resnectahlo citizens ol St. Loulx.
against thu aiiiioliitiiicnt of Magulru.
which tho prosecution will claim shows
that Habcock, who opened all the corres
pondence, had them kept Irom thu
President anil simply sent them
to the department, where they were put
on file. The president did not know that
Habcock had bieu In secret correspond
ence with McDonald under cover to Ma-
Jor Grlmcn alter McDonald's Indictment,
nor inn iiu miow mat i.ucKcy ami nan
cock hud been lu telegraphic communica
tion by cipher during tho Avery trial. At
the conclusion ol thu examination tho
counsel for thu government put this
question : "Now. general, tho sum and
substance ofall you know Is this, that ll
General Habcock ha been guilty ol any
misconduct yon luivn't discovered It."
And tho pieMilciil replied with a nod :
"That's so." 1
Tho prosecution argue that thu presl
dent's deposition. Instead of bcnulltlng
the defendant, will severely damage lils
ciise, and they will urge that the fact ol
Geneiul Grant's never having seen any
of thu crooked telegrams until after Hah
cock's Indictment itablUlies tho signifi
cant circumstance Utt Uabcock carried
on this telegraphic correspondence iu
secret and studiously concealed It from
the president. TJ10 prosecution will
also dwell strongly 01 tltp alleged sup-
prcssloii of the protcsli against
.MouoiiaiU'is ami .singuiic d appointment
by Habcock, as tending to show thill (he
defendant was an active friend ol theli s
iilld even ouppressed thu preMrient'H cor
respondence 10 serve llicin. A remark
able featuio of the president' testi
mony Is his forgetfulnesss In not
remembering what explanation 01
tlu1 dispatches Habcock gave, although
that explanation, a ho remember', was
satbliictory to trim: but this Is a feature
ol the deposition which the government
counsel will probably, from respect fur
executive and loveot their own official
heads, not comment upon.
