AN APPROPRIATION OF FIVE MIL
LIONS FOR THE MISSISSIPPI.
BILL PA8HKD BY TUE SENATE.
Wasui.noton, April 25. This will bo
looked upon as a mumorahlo day in the an
nals of the sonato; By a unanimous vote a
bill wus passed, appropriating five millions,
to be expended as rapidly as it can bo
judiciously spent to continuo the improve
ment of tho Mississippi. Bo largo a sum
was never appropriated at one timo for a
work of internal improvomont. Tho bill
passud to-day includus an appropriation of
one million for tho Missouri. Seniors
Garland, Jonas and Kellogg, who had of
lured amendments to tho bill, becoming
satisfied that they would bo voted down-by
an overwhelming majority,
WISELY CONCLUDED TO WITHDRAW TREM

committee on the improvement of the Mis
sissippi and its tributaries. Just before
the vote was taken, Senator Hoar made a
brief speech which attracted much atten
tion, lie made his speech because he
desired to go upon the record as entertain
ing tho opinion that if the jetty plan of Im
provement as proposed by the river com
mission should prove to be inadequate to
prevent destructive overflow, he could do
nothing which would more gratifying the
people of the commonwealth of Massachu
setts than to vote for some plan of improve
ment which would afford a remody for such
overflows of the Mississippi. lie believed
it would be a constitutional exercise of
power to do so.
Senator Cockroll, who drafted tho bill,
managed the measure
WITH RBMAKKABLK SKILL
in the senate. Though ho made no speech
on the subject ho was daily active in his
efforts among senators, and has just reason
for gratification that the bill, as reported,
received tho unanimous vote of tho senate
- Tho senate bill now goes to the speaker's
tablo in the house. An effort will soon be
mado in that body, either to make it a
special order or to pau it under a suspen
sion of the rules.
AN IMPORTANT CHANGE.
It is probably known genorally that the
ground occupied by tho Iron Mountain
railroad company at Bird's Point, with its
incline, depot, trackB, etc., was the property
of a Mr. Russell, a wealthy land owner in
Mississippi county, Mo. The railroad com
pany was using the ground, so a Bulletin
representative was yesterday reliably in
formed, without having purchased it from
Mr. Russell, or having made any arrange
ments looking to a future purchase thereof.
Mr. Russell allowed the company to take
possession of the ground in this way, partly
because at that time Col. Thomas Scott
was president of the company, and Mrs.
Scott was a near relative of Mr. Russell's.
But lately Mr. Russell began negotiations
with the company, with- a view
to selling tho ground, and for this
purpose made a trip to St. Louis this
week. It seems however, that no satisfac
tory understanding could be arrived at be
tween tho company and Mr. Russell, and tho
latter sold tho ground to the Texas, and
Cairo n arrow gauge railroad company which
will begin'improvemcnts immediately. The
Iron Mountain road will therefore be com
pelled to abandon its present location at
Bird's Point and make connection with
Cairo by way of its old
right ot way which strikes the "river
sonio distanco further down. It is believed
by somo that the enmity existing between
tho Iron Mountain and the Texas and
Cairo companies had something to do with
tho transaction; that tho former desired
to keep tho ground, but that the latter out
bid tho former and came forth victorious.
This is not probable, however, for, so far
as The Bulletin can learn, Mr. Russoll
dealt very fairly with tho Iron Mountain
company, giving it the refusal of the
A largo force ot men will be put to work
