Acorrcsiiondunt of the 8t. Louirt Uepulj
licaa occupies over a column in tlmt paper
with an account of tlio ruvages of the Minsis
Bippi rivor, between St. Louis ami Cairo,
during iu lato ILxid. The writer has been
an eye-witness to the terrible destruction
wrought by the mighty Htream ami lias
consulted old river men concerning its
ravages in tlio past. Alter giving a glow
ing picture ot the work of the flood, lie
speaks as follows:
"Will the people who are interested
those in the old, ancient town of Kuskaskia;
those along the river whose lands are like
ly to bo destroyed; those of the town ol
St. Marys, who are threatened with the
prospect of the river leaving them out eight
miles trom the river; those of the city of
Chester, who now posses? one of the deepest
and best hartors on the Mississippi rivi r,
which they are in danger of losing unless
sorrething is done. Is it possible, that
among so many, all of whom are so vitally
interested, that tln-y will all fold their arm
in IuIsr hope, until 'it may be forever too
late, for some anyway, Bnd much
more expensive for till concerned.
Can the people, who are living on this
river, afford to do something individually
to aid in its proper improvement?
It is safe to estimato that in the lust
twenty years they have lost, by washing in
in of the banks, from time to time, exceed
ing the following:
St. Louis to Rto. Genevieve 5,000 acres.
Ste. Genevieve to Kaskaskia. . . 1,500 acres.
Kaskaskia to St. Mary's 2.000 acres.
St. Mary's to Chester 1,000 acres.
Chester to Hig Eddy 1,500 acres.
Uig LUily to Cairo 5,000 acres.
Total 15,000 acres.
These lands thus destroy ed would be to
day easily worth 10 per acrc.which would
make a loss thus sustained ot $00,000."

Scenes in Havana,
You will open your eyes perchanco
when you hear that Havana claims a
population of 450,000. This, however,
is an overestimate. Well-informed, busi
ness men assure me thatthe actual pop-1
illation was about T.80,000. Of this num
ber 10,000 or 12,000 are Chinamen and
4.000 foreigners other than Spaniards.
The Chinamen are engaged in every
pursuit, except politics, and you never
turn a corner without encountering ono
of them. Some of them look sleek, fat
and thrifty, whilo others look cadaver
ous and wretchedly poor. Passing an
alley ono day, my traveling companion
and myself stumbled on a sight that
stumped and rooted us to the spot for
some minutes. There, In a little nar

Whilo Ada Ilchsui, the well-known
actress, was in Louisville a short timo
ago, a Southern gentleman, a planter of
considerable years and fortune, allowed
her to overcome his long-sustained aver
sion to matrimony, anil approached the
fair lady with proposals of marriage.
Tho following conversation is then re
ported by a veracious Louisville scribo
to have ensued:
"If I consented to become your wife,
sir, I should first desire timo to under
stand your disposition; second, I should
desire your consent to two propositions.'1
"Name Vm," he said.
