At LeClaiie there is only eighteen
inches more water now than there was at
tbe lowest stnge of last year. Moreover,
the channel between that place and here
is limited now to vessels of not more than
three and a half feet draught. The
shoalest water is at Winnebago, island,
about eight m ilea from here. The channel
all the way al mg is partly filled with aand
that has been drifting in from above, and
there is less vator than there should be
on that account. As the water falls,
however, it veers tbe filling away more
rapidly, and thus, in- some measure, the
river clears its channel itself, but it does
not do the work quite as fast as the water
now falls. Tha davs of absolute low
