that the recelpU by 4,ciiEtoms," that is

$1,079,073,788 17, while the receipts from

ternal revenue ot $3G2,4S6,102 17.
But this great source of the prosperity
of nations has been so shanietully neg
lected and mismanaged by our govern
meet, that "England has won a great
commereial battle over us. She bas out
. generaled us In :ouame rclal strateg' and
hu nearly swept our nifrcantlle ensigns
irom the seas een from our owu har
bors." She bas done this by wise and
timely aubsidlea, tor maritime mail ser
f ices, to seventeen great steanRip lines
to China, India, South America, the Fa
clflc, the United SUtes and in short to
all the distant wealth-producing coun
triea of the globe. These subsidies
ware ' gradually increased from
4.J27,018, In 1877, to $6,070,741, In 1871.
Since then they have been gradually de
creased to $4,420,261. In 1S7C, because Die
objeet ot England has been gained. She
has captured the trade. But ttie pelicy
ot England always hns been to sustain
her merchant marine, and that will al
ways be her policy so long as It may be
necessary to secare the object, which is
to transact the business of the worlJ.
Her subsidies range from $1.16 to $4.13
per mile, while In the United States the
mail pay to the few ocean steamship lines
thus "subsidized" ranges from .01 1-2 to
1.08, the latter Ulng from Portland to
I ranee is even more energetic in sup
porting and extending her foreign trade
and her great "subsidized'' lines are
elosely pressing those of England for
the business ot the west coa-t of Afrlcs,
the West lodics and many other rich
fields. The average pay for mail servi
cs to the great Mes-ariei Maritime
running to China, Jupuu. India, South
America, the Mediterranean, the West
Indies, Mexico, the L'nilcd -Uste, and
the English Channel is six dollars and
th'.rty-seven cents per mile.
"And here note the wntrast between
France and the United Mates. The for
mer springs up like a I'h'enix from the
ashes ot both foreign ami civil war, li om
prostration and devastation. She knows
well her source of revenue. Atk the

would rather see $7 50 per milo paid out
ot the treasury to the Messsgeries and
to the TranS'Atlantique companies, and
be reaping his renewed prosperity, than
b) to-day like the .American tradesmen
and manufacturers Idle, if not bank

principal steamship companies on a na
tional basis, made advances as a neces

Italy expends iu subsidies to steam

Kussla, Auatila, Old Spain, Holland,
Denmark, and even Japan, pursoe the
same system. The Utter pays $200,000
. to a short line plying between Tokohan.a
and Shanghai, and thus compelled
branch ot the American line to withdraw
irom the route and sell out.
Compare this with the miserable poli
. cy of our government, directed as it Is
' by the maxims of Ignorant and short-
sighted demagogues, who vainly hope
to secure a little local popularity by
policy which permits other nations to
absorb our commerce and cut away the
very foundation of national prosperity

The lost report of Capt. Brown, in
spelling euj;iii'r at the Jetties, i- now
bting printed. It is very longand full of
tables and details ot surveys. He says
tbe following U the depth of water that
cuuiu be c tied tniuukti earn 2,'w tcet
tteluw east point at the following dates :
XoTcntlcrS, 1S77, at 2,000 feet, 20 3-10 ,
at fiom 4,000 to 6,000 feet, 2S 5-10 ; Nov.
13. at ,000 to 8,000 tect, 24 2-10 ; Dec. 1,
at 10,000 to 12,000 feet, 21 3-10 ; Iec. 7,
at8,0"X)to 10,000 feet, 23 feet; Dw.14.
at 10,000 to 12,000 leet, 23 7-10 feet. In
one pHrt of this report there Is the trN
low ins statement:
"As roii'iderablc attention ha been
directed to a table on page 30 of my re
port, dated August 1, 18", giving data
si tu the amount of scour and Phonling
in an aiea of 11 1-4 Miunrc miles bryond
the jetties' ends, it may le well to make
an explanation ot dlvUitiou one ot Out
area which it has been contended by
some should nut have been Included in
the general averaging l-ccaiiscthe sound
ing were but eight in number in June,
1E77, and six in .lime, 1S7G. Doubt s to
the alleged shoaling lias been expre.ed.
Had it been practicable more sounJings
would haTe been made in this area,
but bad weatlmr- and tbe other
causes induced me not to prolong the
survey for tbe purpose for it is evident
that one single sounding here is much
more valuable in determining tha mean
depth than several near the end of the
ettles, because ol the greater uniformity
ot slopo and the absenoe of abrupt cliun
ges ot depth and of the character of the
bottom; and again, the existence of the
shoaling shown in division one by com
paring the two charts designated, was
well known to me and all of my party
and to others."
The report of the board of examining
engineers lor the jetties was submitted
to the cubinet to-day. The favorable an
swers to the lollowing question put by
the secretary of war in his letter of ins
structloas gives an abstract of the report
What depth and width of channel has
been secured throngh the south pa-s to
the deepest water in the Gult of Mexico?
Are the Jetties and auxiliary works con
structed or in process of contructimi
permauent, fcnflkierit and thor
oughly substantinl within the
meaning oi said act of
congress! Have the condition in said
act been fully compiled with by Mid
James B- Ends In no tar as ho has pro
ceded with the work ? Is James 15. Kads
In your opinion entitled to receive $300,
000, which by the terms of the act was
to be paid to him when hvaing fully
complied with the condition prescribed,
A chauncl ol 22 Jeet in depth and 200
tcet in width shall have been obtained by
the action of said jetties and auxiliary
works'?" The president instructed the
secretory ol wsr to issue his warrant on
the secretary ol the treasury fur the
The Jetty (System.
The success ot the jetties in the auuih
pass is exciting a desire to spread still
wider the advances of the system. It
Is proposed that those who desire to sec
the improvement ot the navigation ot the
Mississippi river, and those who desire to
save lands from overflow by levees, shall
combine plans and interests, making the
Uvce system protect where necessary,
ani the jetty system where adopted ; the
former warding oft overflow, tho latter
preventing it by scouring out a deep
channel. There is also a movement in
Charleston to apply to congress to em
ploy Mr. Kails in placing je-tlles so as to
deepen the entrance to the harbor there.
It U evident tho jetty system la doomed
to accomplish many important Improve
ments in our waterways.
! 8ller meeting-, Jitmmry 15th.
The deep interest felt by the people ol
Illinois In tbe passage ot the silver bill,
bas manifested ltselt in numerous local
meetings throughout Upstate, whereat
strong resolutions have been passed in
lavor ol rcmonetir.atiou,and much en
thusiasm In tho cause has been exhibited.
Some time since the suggestion was made
that a state meeting uf the advocates ot
the silver dollar should be held at the
capital, and It was favorably received on
all sides, the 8th of the present mouth
being named by some papers as the day
on which It might be held. That date,
however, is considered too early to make
auy arrangements for the meeting, and it
is now proposed to hold It on Ms lth.

and suggests to Its cotcmpoarlesr

Senator Wallace introduovd a bill to pro
Vide for a "goloid " coinage, to eousist of
certain proportions of gold, silver and
copper. Tue tlwory was first promul
gated by a Mr. llubbell, who printed a
lengthy pamphlet in advocacy oi the Idea,
and w hen he had numerous interviews on
tie subject with umny ol tho leading
members ol both huii.-ts. Senator
Wallace denied that he was a convert to
the theorv, but wiid th it hu Introduced
Mr. UubbeH's bill by request. It is
claimed, however, by the advocates 01
the propo-ed now coin, tbat several
leading congressmen are favorabl y
impressed with the protect, and
among them is mentioned the
Hon. A. ii. Stephens, chairman ot
the house committee on coinage, weights
and measures. Mr. Stephens has ad
dressed a letter to the director of the
mint requesting hliu to have dii s prepar
ed to strike oil some specimens of the
proposed goloid dollar. The director of
the mint lias sent the neceasary di
rections to tho auperintendent of the
mint at Philadelphia, and as soon as may
be we wltl have some specimens ot the
new coin. It Is proposed that the goloid
dollar shall consist of 253 irrains, to be
proportioned ho follows , diUgiaina And

Diseases of a choleraic type prevail, or
there is cause to apprehend a visit Irom
them, the system should be toned, regu

best saleguards against such maladies,
and both are secured by this Inestimable

also extremely serviceable In remedying
