with a new cost of black paint, lay a
proudly with the war fleet. By the c
nmiddle of last week this expedition
was so far advanced that people be
gan to speculate upon its probable
destinationt. The very curious did
not hesitate to take an early walk up- t
on the Battery, and to devote an hour
to the critical examination of the
fleet, to see if any of them had left.

The 3d Rhode Island regiment was
transferred from Fort Hamilton to the
n Cahawba, andCol. Serrill'sengineers

tYesterday the battery was throng

e the Star of the South, Ocean Queen,
a D)aniel Webster, Ariel, Arago, Van

I The Iberville Gazette publishes
- the following communication :
SShould you deem it proper, you "
t can give publicity to the following
in regard to the closing of Bayou
Plaquemine. as it will not serve us
to keep "a light under a bushel," es
pecially as we are threatened by j
some of our neighbors with reopen- c
in that stream. a
V:e first assume that the closing s
of Bayou Plaquemine was a matter
of the first necessity to the prosperi
ty of all t.he interior part of our par- t
isa, situated on the west side of the
,Mississippi river-I say of the first fi
necessity-I will go further, and
say it left as no chnice (since the
close of all public works by the State
Government, and the sale of all the v
1 machinery used in clearing the in
terior streams of drift, etc.,) between
Sruin or that great law of nature, self.
preservation ; and our Plolice Jury,
. seeing no other remedy, wisely adop
ted resolutions ordering the closing
of this Bayou, in so far as that no
drift should be permitted to enter.
The Police Jury was and is acting
the part of what ever individual is
a permitted, that is, to take care of the ti
territory and property of its inhnbi
tants. This body did not prrsnatlne
to array itself in opposition to the "
State Legislature or anybody over 1
it-nor did it prsutme to order works p
that would be injurions to its neigh- o
hors; for it has nevr yet been pro
po yen that the closingofBaynmu Plaque
mine would be an actual injary to
e any part of the State, although it has n
g been asserted that it would raise the
water level a few inches below. Yet,
e as there are as many enlgineer d
0 afamnst this opinion as there are as
Smany engineers against this opinon F
e as there are in favor of it, we may at
t. least infer that the case is not made
e out. and therefore contend that this
n work should b- permitted to stand,
, for some years at least, until it is
fully proven one way or the other. i
STlhe State at large will be immense
ly benefitted by having this bayou e
left closed, and the parishes of St.
Martin and St. Mary in particular.
Although we hear of some action
t having been takn in some one of e
n these parishes to force an opening
d through the works lately erected.
e we cannot believe that anything se
e rioes is intended, as those parishes
n wodid be th6 greatest gainers--e--e
peciay as they -have now several
o other ways of getting to market
with their productions. As in the '
a navigation of Bayou Ilaquemine be- n
Sofany real beneft, all who know 2
the state of the lower streanis can a
well affirm that now there are no
