Ten thousand dollars was yesterday voted

led the opposition, taking tho ground that
no votes had been purchased, and therefore
the subject was not a proper one to spend

THE GREAT NEED OF THE MISSIS
THE PEOPLE Mt'ST t'NITE AND DEMAND OK
CONGRESS THE IMPROVEMENT OK THE
In discussiug the present and future of
Memphis, the Avalanche, of that city, urges
us a great necessity, tho improvement of
the Mississippi river and the reclamation of
the immense bodies of fertile lands ou
cither side of it, that tre now worthless be
cause of periodical inundations. As the
facts aud arguments of the Avulancho ap
ply to Cairo with as much force as they do
to Memphis, we give them place in this is
suj of The Bclletin. Regarding Mem
phis as weighed to the earth by her pecu
niary cmbnrussnieuts, the Avalanche- in
quires: "What can rescue us from this state of
things as thoroughly as an unlimited trade
passing up wid down the Mississippi river,
and an industrious population settled ulong
its banks, where periodic overflows render
any settlement impossible? The knowledge
that such results were 'possible of accom
plishment ought to arouse tho energies of
every resident of the Mississippi valley.
Make the Mississippi river the grcnt high
way of tho nation, for which position na
ture has so well fitted it; let the vast com
merce from the Missouri, from the Yellow
stone down, of the Mississippi from the
Sauk rapids, of the Ohio from the junction
of the Allegheny and tho Monongaliela, and
of all the vast and numerous tributaries
pouring into these rivers, all pass by tin
hluifs of Memphis on their way to the sea,
and what a revolution would bo accom
plished in our condition! Imports lroin
the various portions of the world would
seek purchasers in our markets, passing.
iKiats would put in here tor supplies, mul
we should be in cheap communication
with all portions of the Mississippi valley.
These advantages would attract population,
encourage manufactures, and make Mem
phis one of tho most flourishing and pros
perous cities in North America. With this
population, thin trade, this prosperity, of
what weight would bo tho indebtedness
under which we now stagger? Here
lies the way out of our troubles, hero
lies the course that leads to success tho
improvement of the M ississippi river, open
navigation to tho gulf of Mexico, access by
water to the seaports of the world. Is all
this of possible attainment f Rend tho re
port of tho congressional committee, and
seo the prospect it opens when it recom
mends legislation that shall give a twenty
five foot channel from New Orleans to t?t.
Louis. The report shows that nil wo speak
of cun be accomplished by congress grant
ing the necessary aid. But can congress be
induced to take that care of the Mississippi
river it has up to this timo lavishly dis
pensed elsewhere ? This is the very ques
tion the people of this valley aro mainly in
terested in, and every citizen should make
himself acquainted with tho subject of
Missisipii river iinprovemant in order that
ho may successfully give his aid, as a clti
ten, to accomplish tho desired result. We
know that many persons will not take in
terest in this matter from a belief that cou
gross will continue to bo as neglectful of it
in the future as Jf they have been
In the past. , If -wo go' the right way to
work we cm infallibly . arouse congress
lrom its apathy, and commaud an influence
that it cannot withstand, and that will
command the victory we so ardently long
for. Congress lias been neglectful of this
moment, question, because the influence
that should have been exercised upon that
body by the people of tho Mississippi valley,
has been neutralized by a division of in
terests. On tho lower Mississippi tho 10
ple were interested in preserving lands
from overflow, and cared little ulmut the
navigation of the upper stream. The resi
dents on the upper river felt no interest in
tho preservation of tho shore below Cairo;
they wanted obstructions removed from the
bed of the river, so that navigation might
be unobstructed. Thus two contestants
neutralized each other's influence in con
gross, ami the Mississippi river was almost
totally neglected. Now, however, this
need bo tho case no longer. The plan of
improvement initiated by Captain Ends at
the South pass of the Mississippi river brings
both parties together, stopping ull rivalry
bycoiflbirfftboth interests. He does this
byni4khiii4j,4imnn(-l required for
navigation tho mean's WcTirryiug off svper
fluous water, and go preventing overflow.
The plan oil which the jetties are construct
... 1 1 .. 1 , .
en, mm wiucii is good for every
navigable mile of tho whole Misssisippi
river, is this: The amount of sediment
deposited by the river is in nrnnm-tinn tn
the velocity of the current. When the mo
tion is slow the water drops a largi; portion
oMho sdljncnt it carries in suspension;
this deposit makes bars and shallows. When
the velocity is great the stream curries on
watk the sediment it holds, nr eitlior mbU
to the amount by scouring out the; Ijottom
01 tne river.
It, is then fore, plain that on the system of
Captain Eads the citizens of the lower and of
the upper Mississippi would present broken
iront in congress ; tneir senators and tinrepre
scnUitivcs would all vote together on this
important matter. Whatthey could do thus
voting together is seen by one of the state
ments in tno report ot the committee we
are considering. That document savs that
according to the last census the people
wvUnn the Mates and Territories of the
Mississippi number 22,215022; those out
side of it 10,:i4:l,a49. Here is the array
the Representatives and senators of twenty
two millions of people contending for river
improvement in congress, against the rep
resentatives and senaters of sixteen million.
As tho matter is now presented, is not the
proiMirsition we lay down that, on Captain
Haas's plan, the people of the Mississippi
valley can secure full and ample improve
ment of the Mississipi, made plain and clear
The National Complaint. Dyspepsia
is the national complaint. Almost every
other man or woman you meet has it, and
the result is that the number of pseudo-
remedies for it is as numerous as Pharos
host. They are for the most part worthless.
There is, however, a searching eradicant of
this distressing and obdurate malady, one
of whose genuine merits long since raised
it to a foremost place among the staple
medicines of America. Ilostctter's Stom
ach Bitters extirpates dyspepsia with greater
certainty and prompitude than any known
remedy, and is a most genial invigorant,
appetizer ami aid to secretion. These aro
not empty assertions, as thousands of our
countrymen and women who have
