The Report of Col.. Barlow to the Govern-
menta-bast Season's Work of Improving
the Harbnr Reviewed A Further En
largement of the Channel Recommend
edA Dike from Fort Hale Discussed
Tomlidson's Bridge Reported an Ob
struction Its Alteration Recommended
' The Breakwater Additional Appro
priations Recommended.
The annual report of J. W. Barlow, major
of engineers and brevet lieutenant colonel
TJ. S. A., has just been, issued at the govern
ment printing office at, .Washington. It em
bodies a detailed statement of the improve
ments made during the past year in the har
bors of Long Island Sound. We find in this
valuable report the following of interest to
New Haven. The report refers first to the
appropriation of twenty-five thousand dollars
for dredging between Long Wharf and Fort
Hale, the purpose of this being the widening
of the main ship channel and deepening the
same to 16 feet at mean low water the
length of the excavation to be 3,500 feet.
This work, which was executed by the Morris
& Cumin gs Dredging Company at 8 3-4 cents
per cubic yard, is reviewed in- the report,
which sums it np as follows :
. "As the result of the season's operations,
a channel 16 feet deep at mean low water,
and nearly 300 feet wide throughout a length
of 3,500 feet, has been excavated, where the
former depth was from 10 to 15 feet."
The report then takes up the subject of "a
further enlargement of the channel," which
Colonel Barlow recommends to the Govern
ment. He says : .
"The depth of 16 feet given to last sea
son's work is believed to be no more than
the immediate necessities of the commerce of
this harbor demand, to avoid interruptions
and delays in the movement of vessels to and
from the wharves.
During the last season's work the inspector
in charge was directed to notice, when prac
ticable, and report the draught of freighting
vessels arriving with cargoes at the upper
From his observations it was shown that a
number of sailing vessels of 700 to 750 tons,
drawing 13 1-2 to 14 feet, are in constant
communication with the docks above Long
Wharf. These vessels are freighted princi
rjallv with coal and lumber, while several
steamers drawing 16 to 18 feet are engaged
in the same trade.
Twenty-three vessels from the West Indies,
drawing 14 feet, discharge at Long Wharf.
It is stated that a good prospect at one
time existed for a direct steamship line with
Liverpool, which would have been an accom
plished fact had the owners found a sufficient
depth to carry vessels of 20 to 21 feet draught
to the wharves at high water. It would seem
therefore highly judicious that the project of
enlarging the mam channel so as to obtain a
continuous depth of 16 feet to the city
wharves, with sufficient width to permit the
easy and safe passage of vessels of 14 to 15
feet draught at high water, should be carried
into enect at tiie earliest practicable moment;.
Viewing the subject in this light, I presented
on the 4th of February, 187U, after making
an examination of the harbor, in connection
with the season's work the following letter.
The letter is given in full in the report, and
concludes with a recommendation and re
marks as follows : "To meet the present
wants of the commercial interests of this har
bor,! would respectfully propose thai as soon
as practicable the depth across the Fort Hale
bar and above Long Wharf be made 16 feet
at mean low water ; the bar channel to be
500 feet wide, and that above 400 feet, except
at the bend opposite Long Wharf, where an
increased width should be given. The plan
is not proposed to replace that recommended
by the chamber of commerce and board of
harbor commissioners, and discussed in my
report of January, 1875, but as a part of and
preliminary to the ultimate execution of that
more extensive and costly undertaking.
The estimates are appended for the work
recommended, being in all $90,000.
The report proceeds: "There appears to
be no element of uncertainty regarding the
feasibility and probable permanence of that
part of the improvement above the Fort Hale
bar. Here, however, arises a question as to
the best and cheapest method of maintaining
the desired permanence of depth. The Fort
Hole bar is caused by the sudden widening of
the harbor, both to the eastward and to the
westward. The tidal currents, in connection
with the action of West river, have thrust a
long, slender sand spit northward from the
west side, just opposite Fort Hale and about
parallel with the east shore. In consequence
of this formation the harbor is here narrowed
to about 3,200 feet, while above and below its
width is more than double this distance. In
this narrow portion of the channel the
strength of the tides is sufficient to maintain
a depth of eighteen feet at mean low water,
and if this reduced width of channel extended
north or south probably the same depth
would be created by the increased
scour. And should the extension be
carried far enough seaward to meet
the littoral Sound currents, there is
little likelihood of the formation of another
bar. A. further examination of the harbor
has been made this season, chiefly with a
view to ascertaining the strength and direc
tion of the ebb and flood currents and their
influence in forming and maintaining the
Fort Hale bar. A report of the observations
will be given in another place. From this
examination it is inferred that the action of
the flood tide has had some influence in pro
ducing this bar.
The bar being mostly soft mud, similar to
the adjoining flats, its early renewal after the
dredging of 1872 has been accounted for upon
the theory of subsidence. It is probable that
this subsidence was partially caused by the
same agencies which ordinarily produce a
wave and drift bar. In southerly storms the
waves at the mouth of the harbor have great
height and power, resisting the outward
movement of sediment and partially neutral
izing the ebb current. During the flood a
strong current sets in from the Sound along
the west shore, and before reaching the
bar below Fort Hale is divided, a portion
flowing directly up the channel, the remainder
crossing over into Morris Cove. In rough
weather the flood current is beaten against
the west shore, and in the movement along
the beach and over the flats becomes the ve
hicle of more or less material, which some
times is carried eastward as far as Fort Hale.
It would therefore seem that the erection
of a dike from the west shore just opposite
Fort Hale, and running in a southerly direc
tion below the position of the bar, would
serve the double purpose of contracting the
channel and thus augmenting the power of
tne ebb scour, and also ox averting tne sup
ply oi tne material brougnt on by tne flood.
A dike as above, beginning at Sandy Point
and continuing a distance of about 6,000 feet.
would be a desirable adjunct in preserving a
channel across this bar, and perhaps in as
sisting to produce one, yet the great cost of
sucn a structure leads me to renew tne rec
ommendation that the experiment of dredg
ing ub again tnea over a wiaer cnannei tnon
before. If it then be found that the chan
nel shows a decided tendency to refill, the
construction of a dike should be undertaken
at once.
It will be observed from the recommenda
tion heretofore presented that the most press
ing and immediate requirements of this liar-
Dor are tne improvements necessary to deep
en the channel from Long Wharf to Steam
boat jjock, ana to increase tne width below.
To this end the present appropriation will be
directed. . It is extremely important that the
work be commenced without delay and ap-
piupiiauuiib lUMuu iui icm continuance.
T-omllnaon'a Bridge.
By comparing tidal observations taken at
Chapel street bridge and at the Lighthouse,
it is seen that at the former place the rise
and fall during neap tides, as well as the
mean, are greater than at the latter.
The variations during spring tides, there
fore, 'should be still greater at the upper
point than at the lower. The reverse of this
being the fact, i. e. the. rise and fall during
spring tides being less at Chapel street bridge
than at the Lighthouse, proves that the move
ment of the tidal currents is hindered by an
' Tomlinson's bridge, with its long abut
ments and heavy piers, allows a water way of
but about 325 feet, the width of the harbor
here being about 1,400 feet- This bridge is,
therefore, a serious obstruction, preventing
the complete filling and emptying of the
tidal reservoir above. The capacity of the
bridge opening may be enlarged either by re
placing a part of the east abutment by piers,
or by substituting for the present piers,
whose- aggregate width is 155 feet, others of
smaller size. The latter method is perhaps
preferable, as the removal of the abutment
would permit a wearing off of the east flat to
the detriment of the channel below. It is
certainly most desirable that the bridge be so
modified by its owners as to admit of the free
movement of the current to and from the
upper tidal basm. , ...
The Breakwater at the . Harbor's Mouth. ;
The facts touching the' importance of a
breakwater at the entrance to the harbor, ,
with a view to providing a secure refuge for
all classes of vessels upon Long Island Sound,
were presented in the last annual report, and
at the last session of Congress the project for
this work was approved by the appropriation
of thirty thousand dollars with which to
commence the structure. Upon this subject
I can offer very little in addition to what has
already been expressed, but would strongly
urge the immediate application of the sum
appropriated, and also recommend a further
appropriation at the next session of Congress
for continuing the work, the line proposed
being that from the Southwest to Quixe's
jjedge. Tne estimated cost or mis wors is
three hundred and ninety thousand dollars.
Estimates have heretofore been presented
based upon plans advocated by those inter
ested -in the commerce of the city of New
Haven and the improvement at the harbor,
for dredging the main ship channel to an
extent costing from $208,000 to $416,000.
The future exigencies of the harbor will un
doubtedly demand, improvements of this
magnitude, but at present it is perhaps suf
ficient to provide a cnannei or its teec aeptn
at low water, with a width of 400 feet. .
Dredging to that extent can be done at an
expense of about $100,000, and would result
in producing a harbor adequate to the imme
diate requirements of commerce. It is rec
ommended tnat appropriations be made to
this end, and that for the next season's op
erations Congress be asked to make the fol
lowing appropriations :
For dredging Che ship channel ... ..$ 50,000
For continuing breakwater. 100,000

more, aid the poor want more, and we find
that the majority have not as much as the
Arab who owns his tent. The great question
of labor has not been settled, because it has
not been settled right. The laborer must
have an anchorage in this country somewhere.
now is tnat matter to be brought about
Make the people freeholders and you make
them men. Every State and Nation is equally
interested in this matter. The inheritance
that God gave to man must be restored. Let
it become the law of the land that every man
shall become the owner of a homestead
when he has paid for it, and the
great problem will be worked out. The
laborer is paying double the interest he
ought to pay on the- house he rents. Let
man pay what he pays for rent on a house of
his own and he will soon be the possessor of

nuw umuigeu wuuiu mis or any outer
State be after the laborers and operatives
hod become owners of their homes. What is
it that sends people to this country except
the hope of getting a strip of land of their
own ? We have under our government thirty
eight States under as many different govern
ments, so that nothing but railroads and tele-
grapns can go tnrough this country in the
discharge of business without a license. The
speaker here urged a system of savings banks
that should be particularly guarded under the
laws of theState, and which should take as small
sums as five cents. Jails, prisons and poor
houses, said the speaker, are bad things. Let
us make better laws and laws that will make
people better and thereby do away with these
institutions. Children require to be looked
after and taken care of, and it is the double
duty of the State to take care of them, which
it cannot do without proper exemption laws.
Every child is a child of the Government and
owes it allegiance.- If we perpetuate this
nation it must be under a uniform govern
ment that shall protect capital and labor
alike. On the contrary, if capital and labor
disagree and fight, the nation must fall.
Thomas Jefferson, when speaking for
the people, said all men were entitled to life.
liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The operatives of the United States should
demand a national homestead law, and then
the problem will be- accomplished as sure as
Washington defeated the British forces in
the Revolution. Let us be determined to
own a homestead, though the first payment
be but one-fourth of a dollar. There is no
feature more pleasing than harmony between
labor and capital. The burden which the
capitalist is called upon to bear is greater
than you can comprehend. Having nothine
to do with the grand result we should try to
be inendly toward capital. In whatever we
do, we should, however, try to save the
homestead. The highest tone of morality
should be carried out in all our transactions,
but it cannot be done while capital and labor
are trying to pull the cords asunder.
When the speaker concluded he was greet
ed with applause.
After the lecture, Mr. Noyes was congratu-
lated by a large number of prominent busi
ness men, who were present, on his success
as a lecturer. The subject matter of his lec
ture was also warmly commended by these
Police States. .

Rowe were arrested yesterday afternoon in a
house on Fair street known as the "Coa
Mine. They were engaged in a general
drunken row. " . "
"Dr." Thomas Powers, who has frequently

and John Donahoe, Nicoll street, were among
the arrests made last evening. The charges
against them are that they sell liquor without
a license.
Gasper Lorbee was drunk and disorderly on

The Knock Miracles.
A Connecticut irl Who Thinks She Was
Cured by a Piece of Cement. .
Mary Ellen McNamara, daughter of a re
spectable laborer of Norwich, had been for
five years afflicted with epileptic fits, which
had completely paralyzed her lower- limbs.
She is twelve years old, and her limbs are not
larger than those of a child of seven or eight.
The bones show through the skin and- are
ike pipe Stems." She is not larger than a girl
of six years. For four years she had not loft
her bed np- stairs, except hen removed by
an assistant. Each morning her father was
wont to take her down stairs in his arms to
the breakfast table. She was troubled with
almost unintermittent spasms that left her
at length in a cataleptic state. She had not .
walked a step in five years. Her father has
cousins in Ireland, in the county in which is
located the famous Knock parish, the scene
of recent luminous apparitions of the Blessed
Virgin and the saints. They wrote to him,
telling of the wondrous cures that were be
ing effected in that county, and Mr. McNa
mara, naif believing,? asked them to send him
some of the cement from the Knock chapel.
A short time ago the cement came, with di
rections for its application. The cement was
applied to tne dock or me gai a ui. j.
effect is thus told by the child :
"First I felt a pain in the back of the neck,
and it kept growing worse, until finally it all
left me, and I felt better. Then my folks
took me up and put me on my feet, and I
found that I could walk."
"Did yon take any other medicine ?" she
was asked, and the child replied j -v - .
"Oh, no ; none at all"
The miracle was effected in a few hours.
On Thursday lost she walked down into the
city with a companion without aid, and on
Friday she walked over to the circus grounds,
and after the exhibition back home. She
seems to be fully recovered, although her
gait is unsteady, owing to the extreme fra
gility of her legs, and has a peculiar sliding
style. A friend of the family, an Irishman,
who is bedridden, is to be sent to the old
country for relief at the Knock church.
A Great Center.
Monson & Carpenter's is completely filled
with everything that is choice, desirable, sea
sonable and coveted in fashionable circles,
and every department is a fine display. Their
fine stores are hives of business in shopping
hours, one of the great resorts in the State
for buyers of elegant " goods. Their large
cash capital enables them to fully command
the market, and their ample experience and
knowledge of New Haven wants secures ex
ceptionally fine shoppingopportunities, which
our New Haven buyers recognize and which

all the towns for twenty miles around. Some
of the features of the spring display are as
follows: Elegant silks, brocades, dots, and
damassee satins, dress goods of all kinds,
combination trimmings, both in silk and
mourning goods, the completest assortment
in the entire city ; those beautiful lace bunt

to match ; an elegant line of black and white
trimming laces; attractions in parasols,
