Mr. Uaker was remarkable for hie ac

Henatoril'rutt, of Indiana, In the advo
cacy of a bill giving Btatc courts mari
time and admiralty Jurisdiction, made
the following oloqtient reference to the
Mississippi Valley:
The history of the world, sir, shows
that most or tho great commercial and
manufacturing cities have been founded
at the mouths mid upon thu banks of
navigable rivers. There Is no commerce
so cheap as upon water untaxed water.
The valleys through which they course
contain the dcti&cst population. Their
alluvial boll is nourished by tho sediment
from ovorllow, and the washings of tho
adjoining high lands. Production is
stimulated by convenient access to mar
ket. Tho earth Is more thoroughly fer
tilized mid worked, both because popula
tion Is more dense and the returns of la
bor irioro profitable.
No country, Ir, Is so. blessed with the

emi vuNc-d by civil war, und the rebels
arrested our pssage to the Gulf over the

were dispatched to restore the Interrupt

more shocked tho national heart than
that this great artery, the common prop-
cry unit priue 01 tne wnoie country,
should be cIocd to commerce, or that
commerce upon it should ho made to
pay tribute. And when Vlcksbtirg fell,
when her batteries commanding tho
