TRADE ON THE MISSISSIPPI.
TUEURUWTH OY T11E RIVER TRADE HOW
THE WESTERN FARMERS RAVE KEEN
BENEFITTED BY THE JETTIES.
New York Herald.
Capt. James IS. Eads, of St. Louis, was in
town yesterday, at tho Fifth Avenue hotel.
Ho has been traveling a good deal of late,
and expects to leave for Europe in a few
weeks. Ho returned from Mexico on the
sumo steamer with Oen. Grant, after liav.
ing liis concession to authorizo the build
ing of a ship railroad across tho isthmus of
Tohtiantepec vonlinuod by both houses of
tho Mexican congress. Recently ho had
been cxuminiiig the harbor of Toronto, nt
tho request of the Canadian government,
tor tho purpose of discovering its capacity
for further improvement. The Canadians
appear to him to bo earnestly engaged in
leaving no stone unturned toward utilizing
all the advantages they possess for securing
the carrying trade of tho went and north
west, and tho improvement of Toronto har
bor is an auxiliary step in this direction,
Capt. Eads, in referring to tho growth of
business ou tho Mississippi river since tho
deepening of tho water at Now Orleans,
said: "Tho shipments ot grain trom tho
mouth ot tho river have increased forty-fold
in nix years. Heforo that time not half a
million bushels of grain were shipped from
New OiIobus, whilo during the past year
the exports were between 17,000,000 and
20,000,000 bushels. Tho cotton export has
also greatly increased, and the cost of trans-
Sortation has been reducofl to $1.25 a
alo. Tho only drawback at tins moment,
to a rapid and continuous increaso in tho
grain carrying business is tho lack of bargo
capacity. Mr. Jackson, president of tho
elevator company of St. Louis, tolls roe
that thoy could do twice as much shipping
it they had tho barges. So great is the
pressure on their resources that they have
been forced to fix the prico of carrying
grain at eight cents it bushol when It
would pay then to carry it at three
cents if they had tho accom
modation ; but of course efforts are fast be
ing made to meet the wants of shippers,
and the present state of affairs only goes to
show that a strong and widespread appreci
ation of the advantages of tho Missis
sippi river as a channel of transportation
has taken hold out west. Railroad iron
from abroad intended for roads in tho
northwest now comes to New Orleans,
though it formerly went by way of New
York anrt tho Erie canal. Tho Mississippi
threatens at no distant day to bo a serious
rival ot the Erie canal, and in order that
tho iatter's capacity may be enlarged the
state ought to abolish the tolls on it.
"People think it is an idle boast that the
deepening of tho water at tho mouth of tho
Mississippi river saves tho states tributary
to tho river $25,000,000 a year, but figures
prove that it does. There were about two
thousand million bushels of grain produced
in the entire country hist year, and three
fourths of that quantity canio from the
states tributary to the Mississippi. A sav
ing of a cent a bushel on that amouat
would li $15,000,000: but the actual sav
ing cannot lc less thiin 5 rents a bushel,
ami if it were not there would be no induce
ment for the trade to go that way in pre
ference to other routes."
"What is the present condition of the
mouth of the river?"
"There are twenty-nine feet o( water at
low tide, so that the Urgent vessels can
come into port at any time, day or night.
This thoy cannot do here, but tnuht wait at
Sandy Hook until the tide rises on the
"What improvements are contemplated
on the river above New Orleans?"
"There was a proposition originally to
devote $5,000,000 to the improvement of
tho river above, but this wits cut down to
$1,01)0,000, which, under a commission ap
pointed for the purpose, will bo applied
initially to the work of improvement at a
point in the river alwut 100 miles below
"What averaire depth of water is it pos
sible to secure ou tltc main portion t f the
"It is .perfectly practicable to secure
twenty feet at low water from Cairo down."
"How long does low water interfere with
navigation to any extent?"
"For three months of the vear beptem-
ber, Octolcr nnd November."
"What other shipping points are there
on tho river besides St. Louis?"
"Cairo iniirtt become a crcat shipping
point. It is already doing a largo business.
Davenport and other places aro mentioned,
andsos I said before, there appears to bo
nothing to stop the increase in toe tramo
on the river but tho want of sufficient
means of conveyance."
"Forced by my political connections
into nulilie. lifi- mv RufTerinirs were intensi-
fieii hv tlic enmnwntu of thottu who saw 111V
f(ie.n nnd licftd r.overed with scrofulous

by cuticura jiemcoies.

An Indian Fever and Ague dure.
A party of us, while ou a receut ex
cursion, canio across a company of In
dians who were from Maine. One old
squaw, who was preparing material for
baskets of rather line pattern, was quite
so'iiablo. In tho course of our conver
sation who told us an Ind'uiu boy had
the fever nnd ague. We asked:
"What do you do for it?"
"Oh, we do what they tell ns we
take something I can't think what
they call it."
"Quinine," wo suggested.
Here a big Indian, who was within
hearing, put in:
"That's poison ugh!"
And the squaw replied:
"No, no; we don't take that."
I r rnn ttha Iwinnti " B!i 11 1 flirt nmn
"Yes, ho continued, "quinine will kilt

Wo iuquired what ho considered tho
