that the interest In the result ot the elec-

felt in Congress that both parties besitato
there to take any action which may

which must affect its vote everywhere,
the comparatively haruicmlous-Dcmocra-cy
ought to achieve a victory in all the

The subject of the jetties at the mouth
of the Mississippi river is otio which is a
matter of much criticism and some com
mendation. Capt. James B. Kads arri
ved In this city last Sunday night, nml
yesterday was present at the Men hunts'
Exchange, where he was invited by
President llartwell to explain his views,
not only as to thejettlce, bnt as to li e
Improvement of tito Mississippi river.
The address, which was atten
tively listened to by n portion f tlie gen
tlemen on the floor, was illustrated by
drawings on tlie blackboard, and by u
small map of the mouths ol the rivers.
Whatever may be thought of Captain
tads' theories, or of tlie success ol his
plans, it is certain that ho supports them
with skill and energy. Alluding to the
pities, he said that n depth of twentyone
and a halt itet had already been obtained
in the South Pass. Ho dessribed tlie
methods of building the jetties, and tlie
works that had been constructed at the
openings where the main river was
divided Into three separate chan
nels. Taking up" tlie topic of
the improvement of the Mississippi, the
speaker explained that his plan was di
rectly oppoBcd to the one proposed by
tlie commission appointed in 1875 to re
port upon this subject, Tlie plan re
ported to Congress . contemplated the
completion of the levco system lrom
Cape Girardeau, Missouri, to the mouth
ol the river, and the erection of le'ees
along the tributaries as iar hack as was
necessary to prevent overflow. U al?o
comprised the retention of Bayou Arch
afalays as tho outlet fur ltad Uivcr.
These works were estimated to cost
about $10,000,000. Capt. Kadi set forth
his own plan thus:
In Hood time, tlie .Mississippi water,
even at the surface and above its deepest
channels, is found to be charged with
sand and earthy matter. These are evi
dently upheld in suspension by the cur
rent, lor il tlie water be kept at rest they
are deposited, and it becomes clear. As
the current the cause of upholding this
matter, it lollows that the quantity sus
pended will be increased if the curn nt be
quickened. This Increased quantity
must, bo taken up from its bed. If tlie
current bediminlbhed, it wiil sustain less
ol it in the water, and a portion will tall
In tlie channel. Hence, il the current be
made quick, an enlargement or deepen
ing ot the channel will occur. This Is
If'ihe current be made slow, the size of
the channel will be reduced, or it will be
cleyated by the sediment which fulls into
it. This is called deposit. Tlie river
can therefore elevate or deepen its own
bed, according as its current becomes
too rapid or too slow. It it deepen its
bed where tho current is too rapid, tlie
deepening must soon cease, because the
surfaco slope of the water, which produ
ces the current, is lowered, and the ve
locity diminishes as a result ol the enlarge
ment or scour, lu like manner, the de
posit will finally cense, for, as tlie bed
Is elevated or reduced in
size, the slope It made steeper and the
current moro rapid. Wo see, then, that
the river can not only raise aud lower Its
own bed by tho action of the current.but
that these two opposing agents, scour
and deposit, enable it to control Its cur
rent and keep It lrom running riot. We
will presently see the necessity for oon
troling this mighty current,-which la
forever flowing over a bed of its own de
posits, which it can again take up or
throw down throughout the eleven hun
dred miles of Its devious channel to the
sea, according to the needs of the river.
The ability ol the current to suspend
tho sediment ts modilled by the
depth of tho stream, and lu
regularities lu depth will, therefore, re
quire the normal current to ehangu with
the depth also. The friction ot the wa
ter inflowing through the channel bed
Uthe chief obstacle to be overcotno by
the current In the cflort of the river to
maintain tho normal velocity. j raviry of
the fall ot water from a higher to a lower
level Is the force employed to overcome
inn ana oilier retarding influences.
'Jtae Intensity of this force is Indicated
by the steepness of the slope or tho fall
per mile ol the surface ot the river. The
tlope in highest flood time determines
tlie height ol tho levees at they must le
above it. We will, therefore, hereafter
refer In speaking of slope to tho flood
1 ho friction Is least when the stream
flows In a single compact mass, for then
Die surlace of the bed in contact with wa
ter it a minimum. If the volume he di
vided into eqnal ch anneU by an Island
Hie friotlonul etrvlce ol the bed It h'ore
than doubled, ' To juodiioe the normal
rate ol current in each of the small ubao,,
nets latitt then require a steeper slope, or
more force than If tho whole volume
tloweu In one channel. Hence in pro
portion as the whole voluuw is dimin
ished by an outlet which abstracts any
part of itt water, the remainder must no
quire a steeper slojie and need higher
levees than before. Bayou Atehafaliiya
reaches the sea level by a route not one
third as great as that 'by the main
river. At the point where it
leaves the river, the river and bayou
levels are thasamu, .therefore the slope
ol tli j buy on Is more than three times as
steep as the river, yet tho rute ot currout
iu each Is not materially dill'crent. It
must be tho normal rate, or the sl.e of
tho channel would enlarge or diiuiuUh
under the influtiiiee ol either scour or de
posit. In Bayou L itouruho tlie river can
not keep up tlie normal velocity, owing
to the loss of slope that has occurred by
the lengthening ot the bsyou, and the
Imyou is gradually becoming extinct un
der tint depositing action.
II the river volume be spread out to a
great width the friction of the bed is
greatly increased, uml a slcepei slope
becomes Inevltehle. This depositing ae
tion builds up the bottom of the channel,
Hie increased slope is attained and
higher levees must bo constructed,
i r else the river pours its Hoods over the
.anks and builtls tlieiti up also with its
jVdlmcnt to correspond with tlie eleva
Ion ot its bed.
The laet that the river is flowing
over a bed ol its own tlepoits, aud that
these deposits can be easily and rapidly
removed by IU current, should teach us
that the river controls that current, so
lliat it shall not unnecessarily destroy
what it has made. Abundant proof ex
Ms tliar. it does regulate it through the
action of scour and deposit, so as to dis
charge very nearly just as much sedi
ment as it receive, and no more.
The highest mean velocity of flood cur
rent recorded by Humphreys and Abbott
was 0.22 leet per second at Carrollton, 7
feet ut Vieksburg, 400 above, and 8.-W at
Columbus, 1,000 miles above Carrollton.
This remarkable uniformity existed at
these localities, notwithstanding the
slope at the first is less than tin Inch and
a half per mile, throe and a hair
inches at the second, ' and live
inches at tho third. Here
we have proof that these various slopes
mi! udlusted toprodueethenoimul veloe
iiy, and that they are necessary to over
come the dillerent degrees of resistance
to the flow of the streams that exist at
these different localities. .
Wu find that where tlie volume Is
greatest, and flowing in one compact
mass and uniform whitn, as It does below
I ted river lor over noo miles, Itt slope Is
only an inch and ' three-quarters
per mile, while above Keel river it rapidly
increases, being tnrec ana a nun inches
teoni there to Natchez. Above Natcu-z
it becomes steeper and stwper, until it
attains live Inches per mile at Cairo. .
1 lie planter whose lands arc over
flowed should study intently this ques
tion ot flood slope and its causes, espec
ially when hH rutlccts that if tin) slope
from Hed river to Columbus
(750 miles) were lowered only so much as
the one-tilth parted an inch" the flood ct
( airo wouid be reduced twelve and a hall
leet In height. It now attains tho enorm
ous elevation ol almost fifty-two feet at
The rapidly increased slope above Itcd
river Is due: First, to tho diminished
volume as we ascend above each tribut
ary; second, to tlie numerous Islands;
third, to the excessive width ot the r.'ver
at many localities. The last two cau.'cs
can be easily removt d.
hen a flood occurs, the water acquires
its greatest velocity in the deep anil nar
row narts of the stream where the least
fractional resistance occurs. When the
water enters one of tlie wide places its
current slackens, and it depo-tts the
heavier particles ol suspended
mutters, urid forms shoals. J he
water, having let part of Its burden here,
is again contracted in with at the next
narrow place. It has then less trictional
resistance, and soon acquires a greater
velocity, and with it the power to sus
pend u greati r quantity ol sediment,
ticour at once commences, as the caving
banks near by attest the vigor with
which tho enlargement is made. The
material thus removed is carried by the
current to tho next wide place;, where it
is dropped to elevate the bed there, and
create a higher slope, in this way the
worst and most dangerous shoals have
been created, at each of which the float
ing snags are arrested and imbedded, and
become dangerous obstructions.
The same caues produce the overflows
which create the shoals, and this is most
fortunate Pt tl.u planter, (or
Lit iuicrctts and those of navigation und
commerce being identical, increase his
chances ofrclicl at the cost of the coun
try. Whereas, if the question were sim
ply one ol building levees to protect his
land, and not to Improve navigation of
Urn river, it would be probably deemed
less national in character.
I do not propose to grapple with the
floods, but with the causes which pro
duce them. Throughout the entire basin
we see repented illustrations of the fact
that the greater is tho volume the lower
is tlie slope. Turn the waters ol lied
river down the Mississippi, by closing At
cliafalayas, and we will increase the vo
lume and reduce the slope, if it were
reduced from the Passes to ited river
only a quarter ol an inch, It would lower
the high-water mark nearly seven feet at
Hed River, and the same amount all the
way up. It would then bo steeper than
it is lor 100 miles below New Orleans.
Outlets are pernicious, and inevitably
ruiso the flood line. The river should be
brought to a uniformity of width, and
where Its volume Is subdivided by islands,
it should be conilued to a single channel.
I do not propose to shorten or straight
en the river. Mature study has convin
ced mc that no cutofls w ill be needed to
reduce the flood lino below the level ot
tho land. 1 once thought that otio or
two might bo required. Tho treatment
I propose is simply a high water treat
ment. A uniformity of width ot its
banks will Insure a unilormlty ot depth,
and not less than twenty feet from Cairo
to the tea In low water. A uniformity In
width will bring a uniformity ot current,
which will more rapidly discharge the
floods, aud will stop the caving of banks.
In anticipated results these plant are
Immensely dillerent. One contemplates
the flood waters rising from ten tot wens
ty leet above the surface of the land be
tween leveet, wmcu must involve an en
ormous and never-ending outlay for re
pairs and maintenance, with no
Improvement of the river chan
nel. Tho other, in effect, lifts above the
Hoods forever an area equal to tiie States
of Massachusetts, Vermont, Khode Isl
and, Connecticut and New Hampshire,
and opens 1,100 miles of navigation to
the largest ocean shipping Into tho heart
ol tho Mississippi Valley. It removes
from the channel the snags that now la
test It. prevents cutoffs and caving banks,
and dispenses with the costly ana uncer
tain system of levee protection without
imposing any Important burden or main
tenance upon tho country.
