address on the valley of the .Mississippi
and lu resources and water-ways, which
was attended by the convention en maw
and the citizens ot St. Paul.
After the adjournment of the conven

that a majority ol tho convention feiati,nt
by the adoption of thu sixth resolution.
demandlnir the reoonstruetlon of tim
levees by the general government, tlicy
had overstepped the object ol the con

Improving the levees of the south . and as
u townee oi tne fraternal feeling to-
ward the people ol tho south, the con

Henoh til, That this convention strongly
appeals to congress to aid the states ol
lower Mississippi by liberal appropria
tions for the construction and necessary
repairs ot levees, or to vonliue the river
within its limits, and to prevent disas
trous inundations, Also the following:
That this convention recommend the or
ganization of boards ol trade In all the
cities and towns ol the Mississippi valley,
wUh n view to the concentration ol pub
lic sentiment and Influence upon the one
great purpose ol Improving the Mississip
pi river by continued agitation of the
subject by memorials to congress and
petitions from the people, and by unity
of action until our members ot congn s
lrom Minnesota to Louisiana shall be
made to understand that this great im
provement must receive their first atten
tion, uud that the executive committee to
be appointed inako It their especial duty
to see this carried out.
JtfDutetd, That tho thanks of this con
vention are due to tho legislative depart
ment ot the government lor the excellent
system of lights now in use upon the
Mississippi river, and wo recommend thut
the system be continued and extended.
(lvet, That in our judgment tho
use of the dredge and snag boats have
been beneficial in protecting navigation
from dangerous obstructions, und we
recommend more liberal appropriations
lor this branch ot the service in future,
that these vessels may be kept constantly
in commission in doing the work lor
which they wera built.
In conclusion, the undersigned eon
gratultito the people ot the Mississippi
valley on the unanimity and determina
tion expressed hy the members of tho
convention, Individually and collectively,
to impress upon congress not only Ihu
feasibility but the necessity ot thu im
provement of tho Mississippi river from

ceediugsof the eoiiventioii,siill tliceonven
vention was well informed by the report
ot Colonel J. N. Macoinh, United States
engineer, that estlumtts had been made,
and that the iiisiguitlcant sum of six hun
dred and seventeen tiiounand dollars
would be ample lo secure live feet of
water from ht. Paul to Keokuk, at the
lowe-t stage, and in view of that fact I he
people ot ihu Mis-issippi valley mid the
business men of St. Louis are to he con-
; gratiilatcd on the great advantages to he
gamed to the commerce ot the .Mississip
pi by so small an expenditure of the gen

live feet of water lrom St. Paul to St.
Louis, at the lowest stage, a large
portion of the products ol tin-

to have this embargo removed, and the
