RIVER IMPROVEMENT IN EUROPE.
N. O, Times Democrat.
While congress scorns to hesitate over
river Improvement, all the rcotintiea of Eu
rope ate earnestly at work constructing
canals, improving their rivers and render
ing them navigable, France leads in this
inovemont. For some years past, the
French government has taken iu hand va
rious national works, for which tho largo
sum of $50,000,000 annually has been sot
aside; Austria, on her part, is improving
the Danube snd tho Tbeiss,rendoriug near
ly every mile of those rivers navigable;
England proposes to conBtr ct a ship canal
to Manchester which will onable vessels to
unload cottjn direct at the mills; and Ger
many has just boguu the work ul Improv
ing tho river Wescr. This is to bo done on
a grand scale. Tho rivor is now navigable
only to Bremorhaven, a few milns from its
mouth. It is proposed to improve it to
Bremen, a distance of 25 milfls, at a cost of
$7,500,0, or $300,000 per mile.
In discussing these various projects the
Edinburgh Review arrives at the conclu
sion that the civilized world is not aban
doning the ancient system of inland navi
gation in favor of railroads, but returning
to it a''ain, as a supplement to theie roads;
and is Urin in the belief that England and
Europe generally will m ike more use of
their iiaviif'ilile streams than evrr before.
All of which is worthy of consideration
by those of our papers who do not think
the Mississippi worth improving and who
pretend to believe that thu nilroidsare
entirely superseding river navigation.
Wo wnnt a foreman.
We don't want a man who will bo re
quired to know tho declensions of the
Cireek nouns or tho names of the Eng
lish sovereigns from Egbert to Victoria;
but so help us, Heaven, vu want a
ruan who can tell a pica ound when
bo finds it in tho nonpareil t box.
We want a foreniau who, when the
assistant editor sends in a clipped arti
cle giving tho position of the stHrs las'
June, knows enough to chnngo tho er
ror to tho current month. Tho exigen
cies and emergencies arising in the
composing-room of a printing-offico do
not require that tho foivinrin be a hand
some mau; but it is dosiivd that the
functionary in question have u knowl
edge of conunou-Ncust! if not of punctu
ation, and that ho be able to phco col
umn date lines in tho columns whore
they boloug instead of running thorn in
tho advertising department.
We waut a forcinau' who knows less
about comets and tin planetary system
and moro about tho perihelion of rea
son and taste in sotting advertisements.
Whilo it is not nocessary that ho possess
tho tir.-t idea of rhetoric or grammar,
we fuel in duty bound to demand that
he be capable of finding all sentonoes,
especially at tho bottoms of broken
lino columns, with a period.
Any one knowing of such a paragon
will oblige us by having him arrested
and placed in jail bctoro he can get
away, so that we can secure him.

Pyri' thrum rose, the insecticide plant,
is porfootly hardy in this climate, and
may be raised as easily as tho conollow

powder made from tho flower as an in

it is sure death to many of our most de
structive pests, and yet utterly harm
less to human beings and thu larger au
