THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER.
Washington, January 19. Early in tbe
day the MiBsishippi interests received an
unmistakable set back. Tho well nigh all
powerful commerce committee had rallied
their forces during last night and this morn
ing. On tho other hand, the members of
the improvement committee, failing to act
harmoniously or with anything like concert,
came into tho house without any well un
derstood plan of action.
McLane, of Maryland, a member of the
commerce committco, made the first speech
of the day in opposition to King's proposi
tion to give tho improvement committee au
thority to report a separate appropriation
bill for the MissisHippi. He claimed that if
this favor were grantod to tho Mississippi,
every other river would have a right to de
mand a like favor." Ho charged tho rep
resentatives from the Mississippi valley
with giving too much importance to tho
Mississippi. There was a want of states
manship in attempting to individualize tho
Mississippi in tho matter of appropriations.
He tempered his attack by saying that the
friends of the Mississippi need not fear to
leave the interests of that river in the hands
of the commcrco committco.
Dunucll, of Minnesota, next took the
floor. Ho made a somewhat remarkable
Bpecch. After saying that he was a mom
bcr of tho St. Louis convention and was
much interested in its proceedings and that
he held that congress will fail to do Its
duty unless it Bhall provide for the per
manent improvement of tho Mississippi, ho
declared he was clearly of tho conviction
that tho best policy would bo to leave tho
subjoctof appropriations with the com
merce committee; that to eliminate the
Mississippi from tho jurisdiction of tho
commcrco committoo would to a great ex
tent take away tho strength of that com
mittee. He concluded by laying that be
wai ploasod to discover that the commerce
committee hat an appreciatHm of .the Im
portance of the mbjoct of prodding for the
This speech of Mr. Dunnell was a surprise
to many of tho friends of the Mississippi
who had reason to suppose that Dunnell
was a strong and consistent advocate of a
separate Mississippi river bill. But it was
evident he bad been captured by the com
Pago, of California, chairman of tho com
merce committee, followed Dunnell. He
claimed to believe that the frionds ot the
Mississippi were making a grave mistake.
He did not doubt that every member of the
commerce committee and of the house re
cognized the importance of the improve
ment of the Mississippi. He promised on
behalf of the committee that they would
prepare a river and harbor bill of such a
character that it would not have to be rail
roaded through the house ;that it would be
open to amendment, and would properly
care for all the river and harbor interests
of importance. This declaration was, how
ever, followed by something very like a
threat. Page called upon the friends of
rivers and harbors not included in the Mis
sissippi and its tributaries to see to it that
a proportion for a separate Mississippi bill
was not adopted, for it wero adopted, it
would result in the defeat of both the sepa
rate bill and 'the regular river and harbor
Realizing that tho commerce committee
was in the ascendancy, particularly after
the revelation of Dunnell's conversion, Mr.
Morrison, quick to See the parliamentary
situation, and with a view also to throwing
m the republicans tho responsibility of any
failure to do justice to tho Mississippi, got
the floor and called particular attention to
Dunnell's conversion. He referred to the
fact that the St. Louis convention had pro
posed the policy of separate action relating
to the Mississippi, aud believed it to be of
sufficient importance to receive such con
sideration. But as Dunnell had sctn fit to
change his views on the subject, and had
expressed the opinion that the commerce
committee would deal fairly by tho Missis
sippi, he (Morrison) hoped that Mr. King
would withdraw his amendment in the in
terest of harmony. Iu view of what had
taken place, Gibson, of Louisiana joined
Morrison in asking that the amendment be
withdrawn. He thought it would bo better
to do so in order that there should be no
division inasmuch as Dunnell thought tho
Mississippi would be safe in the hands of
the commcrco committee. King said he
had presented this amendment in order to
carry out the view of tho St. Louis conven
tion. Rut inasmuch as Dunnoll bad
receded from the view he had hitherto hold
and that ho held at the lime of the conven
tion, ho (King) would yield and withdraw
Thus ended the first battle of the session
over tho Mississippi.

"Ho was thore promptly; indeed, h
never failed to bo on time. My studio
was in the fift h story, and there were no
elevators la those days, and I soon learn
ed to distinguish his stop on the stairs,
and am sure he frequently came up two
if not three steps at a stride. t When he
sat down the first time in 'that hard,
wooden, low-armed chair, which I still

y Douglas, Seward, and Generals Grant
and Dix, he said:
"Mr. Volk, I have never eat before to

types and photographs. What shall I
I told him that I would only take the
measurements of his head and shoulders
that time, and next morning, Saturday,
I would make a cast of his face, which
would save him a number of sittings.
He stood up against the wall, and I made
a mark above nis head, and then meas
ured up to it from the floor, and said:
" 'You are just twelve inches taller
than Judge Douglasthat is, just six
foot one inch.1
"Before commencing the cast next
morning, and knowing Mr. Lincoln's
fondness for a story, I told him ono, in
order to remove what I thought an up'
prehensive expression as though he
feared the operation might bo danger
ous; and this is the story: ,
"I occasionally employed a little black
eyed, black-haired, and dark-skinned
Italian as a formaton in plaster work, .
who had related to mo a short time be
fore that himself and a comrado Image-
vendor were 'doing' Switzerland ly. :'
hawking their images. One day aSwiss '
gentleman asked Win if he could make
his likeiuiHs in plaster. "O, yes, signor;
I am a sculptor.' So Matteo Jlattei
such was the name of the pretender
got some plaster, laid the big Swiss gsn.;
ueman on his back, stuck a quill in each
nostril for him to breathe through, and
requested him to close his eyes. Then
'Mat,' as I culled him, poured the soft
plaster all over his face and forehead;
then he paused for reflection; as tho
plaster was beginning to set he became
frightened, as he hacf never before un
dertaken such a job, and had neglected
to prepare the face properly, especially
the gentleman's huge beard, mustache,
and the hair about the temples and fore
head, through which, of course, the
plaster had run and become solhL
'Mat' made an excuse to go ouUide
the door; 'then,' said he, I run like
"I saw Mr. Lincoln's eyes twinkle
" 'How did ho got it off?' said he.
"I answered that probably, after rea
sonable waiting for the snullore, he had
to break it on", and cut and pull out all
the hair which the tenacious plaster,
touched, tho best way he could. 'Mat'
said ho took special pains to avoid that
particular part of Switzerland after that
artistic experience. But his companion,
who somewhat resembled him, not
knowing anything of his partner's per
formance, was soon aftor overhauleu by
the gentleman and nearly cudgelled to
"Upon hearing this, the tears actually
trickled down Mr. Lincoln's bronzed
cheeks, and he was at once in the best
of humors. He sat naturally in tho chair
when I made the cast, and saw every
move I timilti !u a mirror opposite, as I
put the plaster on without interference - -with
his eyesight or his free breathing
through the nostrils. It was about au
hour before tho mold w:w ready to bo
removed, and being all in ono piece,
with both ears perfectly taken, it cluiipj
Eretty hard, as the check-bones were
igher than tho jaws at tho lobo of tho
ear. He bent his heat low and took
hold of tho mold and gradually worked
it off without breaking or injury; it hurt
a little as a few of the hairs of the tend
er temples pulled out with tho plaster
and made his eyes water; ' but tne re
membrance of the poor Swiss gentle
man evidently kept him in a good
"A good laugh," says Charles Lamb,
"is worth a hundred groans in any state
of tbe market."
' Early Maturity in Stock,
There was a time not long ago when
choico, well-ripened beef was only fur
nished by steers at least fi yoars old.
This time was thought necessary to
bring tho animals to full maturity.
Sheep 4 or 5 years old were then pre
ferred for mutton, and comparatively
few hogs were slaughtered for the mar
ket till they were 2 years old. But times
have changed. The sheep at tho recent
Smithficld show averaged only 21 months
old, and tho live weight of some, lots
averaged 294 pounds per head. Some
of the sheep 20 months old furnished
dressed quarters weighing 40 pounds
each. At present most farmers prefer ,
to market hogs when they are within a
few days of a year old.' . At the farmers'
institute at Sugar Grove the question,
At what ago shall we market our steers P
received but one answer, and that ans
wor was 2) years, English feedors ar
rived at a similar conclusion some 'time
ago. The old idea of spending several
years and a large amount of fodder in
building up a large carcass to be subse
quently fattened is abandoned by all in
'telligcnt feeders. The reports of the ,
growth of animals exhibited at the fat
stork show In this city showed the
largest gains In the curly portion of the,
life of the animals and the smallest dur ,
ing the latest portion. This was so,
notwithstanding the amount of food
consumed was largest during tho latter
period. The breeds of cattle, sheep,
and hogs that mature earliest will hcre
aftor be the favorites with feeders. They ;
will desire to make the most meat for
the smallest amount of fowl consumed,
and in the shortest time possible. CAf
