and when alio finally arrived small crowds

miro her, Sho is certainly an elegant
craft; large, well appointed, beautifully
finished. Sho will be a favorite with the
traveling public for a longtime. She lay
at our wharf, until midnight, during which
time many citizens boardod her; and
among her passengers to New Orleans
were a number from this city, among
them Mr. and Mrs. S. 8. Foster.
In an interview with Judge Rinjjo, of
Wolfe Island, tho Charleston Courier
learned tho following with reference to the
losses in the flood at that point, by tho
judge and by Mr. Thomas Tarr of this city:
"T. S. Tarr's warehouse, dwelling-house,
blarksmith-shop, gtore, barn, stables, and a
dwelling-homo adjacent to his home place,
all wont into tho river. Mr. Tarr's loss In
hay and sundry farming articles is quite
heavy. His damage alono will probably
exceed $0,000. D mglss Ringo lost 25
head of hogs. The Ringo warehouse, with
the family buggy and various farming uten
sils, was swallowed up." Mr. Tarr also
lost three thousand bushels of corn, accord
ing to tho same account.
Wo are given to understand that the
late washouts on tho Wabash road cost the
company about half a millon dollars to re
pair and that, as soon as the company shall
have somewhat rocovered from this heavy
expenditure, the work of transferring all
tho freight business to tho Mississippi right
of-way will be pushed to rapid completion.
Another causo of delay has been that the
oonipany could not come to any satlsfacto
ry understanding with the Illinois Central
company, as to crossing the latter's tracks
on Cross levee, in order to reach tho former's
Mississippi right-of-way. The consequence
was that another route was surveyed by
means ot which the crossing of the Illinois
Central tracks a second time would be
avoided; but this new route will necessitate
the purchase of additional ground, and in
this there will probably be now difficulties
There is in England a society for the
suppression of blasphemous literature and
it has suddenly wakened up to a sense of
its awful responsibility. The society has
been letting philosophy and science run not,
until its members are pained to find wide
spread infidelity and rank atheism in Eng
land's cultivated families, and they have
taken a big contract to suppress the works
of Huxley Tyndall, Darw in, Herbert Spm-
cer, Mill, htrausa, Bwinuurne and other
nineteenth-century lights, as blasphemous
and demoralizing. They propose to bring
their cases as fast as their funds will allow
against the authors who live and the pub
lishers who contiuue to print the blasphe
mous and pernicious literature. If the so
ciety lives long euough and Its funds hold
out it will collect and burn all the great
books of tho century and start the world
back towards the dark ages.
Curiosity irompted is to et p into lit
establishment uf Mrs. 8. Williamson yester
day, to learn something about those new
"crushed" fruit shades and other novelties
iu the fancy too ls line, which are now be
coming the rage in fashionable circles; and
we were firmly impressed with the opinion,
that tor thinys of beauty in the way of mil
itary and notions, Mrs. Williamson's place
is headquarters ill this city. The large
room is crowded with goods of every de
scription, every hue, every form, and they are
all arrayed in a manner that catches the eye
mid compells expressions of admiration ev?n
from one who has no millinary education.
Mrs. Williamson has many years experi
ence in the notion and millinary busings?
in this city; she knows just what the ladies
of Cairo want; she makes it a point to
keep up with the centres of fashion in all
things pertaining to her business, and she
carries toe heaviest stock ot notions and
fancy goods generally in the city. This
large stor k, arranged with excellent taste
and tact in bIiow cases, on shelves, wires,
stands, and counters, presents a scene that
is dazzling in its uniform beauty, bewilder
ing in its apparanthy infinite variety. One
of the first things that catches tho eye upon
entering the store is the name of the pro
prietress, wraught in large letters of artifi
cial flowers on a wire screen, and suspend
ed from the ceiling. This is a present from
a large St. Louis house with which Mrs.
Williamson deals heavily. In her flower,
feather, plume and ribbon department she
excells, carrying a very larjre stock of every
size and form and shade, and making a
specialty of the delecate new shades of
"crushed strawlwrry and raspberry, "snuff
brown," "shrimp pink, etc." In her hat
department there was one which struck us
especially beautiful. It was of neat form,
trimmed with ribbons and feathers of the
hues named, mingling in artistic order.
When, after exprcsing our admiration ot
it, Mrs. Williamson informed us that this
hat had also beea admired above all others,
by nearly every lady that had seen it, we
could not help but feel much surprised and
a little flattered at the evident correctness
of our judgement. But no idea cf the real
ity can be given on paper, therefore we ad
vise ladies to visit Mrs. Williamson's estab
lishment to-day which is the last of her
"grand opening" days.
THE SUBJUGATION OF THE MIS
SISSIPPI. BY ROBERT S. TAILOR.
Taking its whole hfo together, there is,
in the phenomena of the Mississippi River,
es elsewhere, a perfect correlation of forces.
It doPB all the work It can all tho time. It
carries out of its channel as much of the
sediment mixed with its water as it can.
When it drops from its broad shoulders a
hundred thousand cubic yards of sand on
one bar, as it often does, it is becauso it can
carry it no farther. It never drops a spoon
ful except for the same reason.
All the conditions of the river are the re
sult of it own foroes. It has no entecc-
dent banks, bars, width or depth; all thse
ato i's own creation. It made yesterday
the things that make it to-day; it is mak
ing . to-day the things that will
mako it to-morrow. Its present inade
quacy to meet tho wants of men is tho re
sult of its inadequate work in tho past. It
overflows its banks because its channel is
not capacious enough to contain its flood.
To make its channel more capacious re
quires more work. At low water it stum
bles over bars which it lacks strength to
displace. To remove them requires more
work. It makes its shallow places shoaler by
the deposit ofHednnont which it wants en
ergy to carry farther. More work would
do it. So that if tho river of tho future is
to subserve to tho interests of mankind bet
ter than tho river of the present, tho river of
to-day must bo induced to do more and
better work. This is to bo accomplished
by tho conservation, concentration, and
wiso direction of all its energies. That thla
means tho conservation, concentration, and
wiso direction of its volume seems too ob
vious to need repetition.
Depletion, or subdivision, Is a slop in ex
actly the wrong direction- It ii a change

toward weakneso; tnt toward s'rrnf'tli. An
outlet may serve to bwer a tlod fnr the
time lei tig, but the remit it a t"titpiirary
adantaie gained at enottii'iua future c jet.
The diminution of volume produced by the
outlet mean diminution of t-rierir. It
mean9 a smaller, weaker river from tint
point to the aea. And that means a river
less able to remove tiari, less able to ex
cavate a clisnnel, lsa able to carry (tedi
ment, les able to contain a flood.
It ia in the nature of things that each
portion of the river snail, in its turn, beat
the burden of the complication above it.
The bars that obstruct it came down from
above. The oediment that load its wafer
came down fro. n above. Hence, there i
the clearest necessity that it should, as in
the order of nature it does, augment its
strength as it descends. An outlet reverse
this order of nature and of reason. It dim
ishes the energy of the river below, without
lightening, in any like decree, the burdens
cast upon it by th river above.
It is not possible, without accurate and
Jtpensive observations and measurements,
to trace all the injurious effects of an outlet
upon the river below, ftut enough is visi
ble to common observation to show the un
varying operation of the laws stated. At
its mouth the Mississippi m tried the out
let system of its own accord, by subdividi
ing into four distinct channels. From New
Orleans down to the widening of the chan
nel, preparatory to its subdivision, it has
nowhere less than a hundred feet of depth.
In its four subordinate channels the depth
rarely exceeds fifty-feet; and at the mouths
of all, except that improved by the jetties,
it is about sixteen feet. Suppose the same
subdivision had taken place two or three
hundred miles higher up. would not like
results have followed in the channels be
low? I ETTER LIST.
