The Mississippi River Problem.
The dllticulties which cnginccrin
science has to encounter in grappling with
the problem of tlie best means to improve
the navigation of the Mississippi and the
tributaries from the source to the mouth
are commensurate with the magnitude of
that mighty volume of water. The rivers
of Europe are but rivulets alongside this
stream, which crosses twenty decrees of
latitude and tweutv-four degrees of lougi
tude, falling two miles in a length of .1,000
miles, uraiii'ng 1, 200,000 square miles of
eiritory, discharging iintitiaily a volume of
water euual to Mo cubic miles, and carry
ii:g in suspension one part of solid matter
in everv ',7J00 parts ol its entire volume
The annual total of this nipended matt
emptied into the gulf would make a prism
one mile square at the base and j feet
hiuh. The delta of tiiis great river extends
nearly up to its confluence with the Ohio
at Cairo. All below that is low land, and
liable to floods at high water. Long be
fore the country was settled by the white
man those great floods were dreaded, and
there is positive existence that the extinct
race of mound-huildurs sought to control
them by means of levees. Since the Unit
ed State have had jurisdiction over both
banks of the great river a great ifeal of en
gineering skill has been broCght
to bear on the river prob
lem, and a vast amount of money
hs been spent in cutting bars, removing
"sings" and "sawyers," straightening chan
nels and building levees. None of the
levees were strong enough, however, to ts
cape osca'ional ''elovasses" nndv the wide
spread destruction which ensued. The
jetty fystein, applied with so much skill by
Captain Ea s to the South Pass, has secur
ed to tlie river a deep and safe channel nt
its mouth, at a cost of a little over .fj,000,
OoO, and now the Mississippi River com
mission, created by congress in June, 1S70.
proposes a science for the improvement of
he navigation of the river and the security
of its banks along its entire length. Their
work has been pretty well mapped out the
entire distance- Ironl Cairo to the mouth ot
the river, a length of 1,100 miles. To
clear out the shoal places in this length of
channel, the river which created them must
bo made to do service in removing them.
The commission have been seeking for
means to harness the leviathan, and compel
the mighty current to clear away a channel
for itself. To do this it is proposed to nar
row the low-water channel to a maximum,
width of 3,000 feet, by a combined system
of levees ami ot brush barriers and jetties.
By this means the space between the new
and old low-water banks will be gradually
raised and the contracted channel, quick
encd in llow of current, will be scoured out to
A greater depth. This would tend to give
the current a greater uniformity both of
depth and velocity, and enable floods to
p i'H off with greater speed. Levees are
needed to promote this work as well as to
protect the adjacent low-lying lands. "Cut
offs" are to be eschewed; it is not deemed
advisable to straighten the channel to any
great extent, and it is recommended that
caving shores should be secured by mat
trasses of brush and riprap works, of stone.
Tho commission's work will necessarily
bo costly. Over $1,000,000 is
asked to start the improvements
which can not be completed nt less cost
than $'211,000 per mile, or $2).000,000 for
tho part of the river between Cairo and tho
passes. If tho improvements can be sub.
Htantiully mid permanently made at any
such figures they will be procured very
cheaply. The area of rich bottom lands to
lie reclaimed under a good levee system
amounts to oli.OOO square miles, worth
$'.'0,000,000 at the low price of $10 an
acre. The annual products of the reclaim
able alluvial lands, itute-belltim rates it
is estimated, would be not less thau $300,-000,000.

Fancy Trades Register.
Many attempts havo been niado to .
print a" picture or design in varied eol- i
ors by a singlo impression, but these
have all proved more or less defective,
owing to tho blending of tho pigments
with each other. A new process invent
ed recently, is, however, frco from thi.s '
objection, and is so successful, that a
manufactory for carrying it out is be
ing erected at Pnasay, near Paris. Tho
secret of success consists in employing
solid colors in tho form of a hard mo
saic, from which tho impression ii
made. This poly-chromo block is form
ed by making a solid matrix of the
ground color, and then cutting out tho
pattern by a sharp, steel knife mounted
on the end of a jointed parallelogram
to keep it vertical while leaving it freo
to move horizontally. Another way to
form this intaglio mold is, to indent it
by a wood or steel die, on which tho
picture is cut in relief. Tho various;
paints are poured into tho mold in a
not and liquid state, ono after, another,
taking euro always to allow the preced
ing ones to cool. When the wholo de
sign is finished, and tho mosaic com
plete, it is shaved with a keen steel
knife so as to give it a Hat,, smooth, lev
el surface. It is then put into a power
ful press, resembling that used by litho
grajdicrs; the material to be printed ia
laid faeo downwards on its slightly
moistened surface, and a series of roll
ers tiro passed over it once or twice, srf'
as to impart tno picture to it. Tha
print is then exposed for a few sccojiib
to tho heat of a hot plato in order to
drive off volatile solvents and fix the
colors, which aro therehy rendered so
permanent that they will stand expos- '
uro to tho sun. Cloths painted in thi
way only lose to the- picture when their
tissues wear away; ami a piece of vel
vet boiled for eight hours in a strong
potash solution still retained somo of
tho color. Water-color drawings and
oil paintings eau bo reproduced on pa
per by this plan so as to present tho ap
pearaneo of chrome-lithographs and
oleographs; but thero is a far wider
field for tho method In printing the

fierman tramps so greatly abound ia
Switzerland, and have lately ' become
