Mississippi valley south of Cairo. 111., the
area under water has been considerably
extended. This extension 1 below Vicks

of tho river, and is mainly due to a break
two thousand feet in width In the levee at
Bigss. Tho overflow cf water at this point
has submerged four parishes (counties) of
Louisiana and partially overflowed Ave
others, while a break at Iafourchc cross

has resulted In the submergence of an ad

"In this newly submerged section were a
total population of S-f.XVG. in proportion of
four colored persons to one white. The re

mentioned area Z13.0oo acres, or over one
half, were last year devoted to cotton; over
Sd.CMJ acres to corn, six thousand acres to
sugar cane, two thousand acres to hay. and
an inconsiderable acreage to other crops.
Tho total value of these farms. Including

Shipments of Tobacco.
WASHINGTON. April 21. United States
Consul General Leo lias advised the State
Department from Havana that the Spanish
authorities there have released one con
signment cf Cuban tobacco for shipment to
a New York firm. This tobacco has been
held In Havana since May last, when Cap
tain General Weyler, by a decree, forbade
tho further exportation of tobacco from the
Island. The American Importers have made
many strong protests to the State Depart
ment against the workings of the decree,
which. It was commonly understood, had a
double purpose first to Insure employment
to the cigar makers of Cuba, who otherwise
would be tempted to join the Insurrection,
nnd, second, to destroy the occupation of
tho Cuban cigar makers In Key West and
New Ycrk. and thus stop their contributions
to the Insurrectionary war fund. The State
Department has taken up the cause of the
Importers, but was obliged to confine their
demands to an allowance of the shipment
of tobacco actually lought or contracted
for by Americans before the decree went
into effect. The tobacco released now is
fome that was actually paid ror lefore the
decree. As to that only contracted for, it
appears to be doubtful whether it can be
released through the efforts of the State
Department, 'lhe Spanish contention is that
they have a 'full right to stop all exports,
leaving to the aggrieved importer in the
United States only a claim, against the
persons in (?uba who have broken their
contract, which claims may be prosecuted
In the Spanish courts. The position of our
government is that under tho treaty of 1713
our merchants have the right, unrestrained
by war, to bring away their effects, holding
that In this view tobacco may be regarded

BOSTON, Mass., April 21. William Law,
formerly of Worcester, . Mass., but now
with the Cuban Insurgent army, has writ
ten a letter to a friend In Worcester, in
which, under date of Juiaro, Puerto Prin

"I am in the heart of the fighting. The
Cubans have the best of It all through,
but, of course, suffer great hardships. The
entire east end of the Island Is absolutely
controlled by them, and most of the prov

beside Havana Itself Is uncertain and may
fall any day. A few days ago 1 saw a battle
between 800 Cubans and two forts defended
by l.Ooo Spanish troops. It took the Cubans
less than thirty minutes to take them and
capture all the arms and cannon.
"Of course war is terrible. I see brought
In men. women and children w ho have been
murdered by Spanish soldiers, whose fiend
ish deeds are too awful to describe. I saw
last week the bodies of three tteautlful little
Cuban girls, aged eight, six and four years,
respectively; of their mother, a woman
about thirty, and of two old women, pos
sibly sixty years of age, all In one heap,
with their throats cut. Their war seems
to be on women and children. When they
meet a body of Cuban troops they scarcely
wait to fight, but throw down their arms
and run." .

A GREAT CRIME COMMITTED.
InrlKues of Certain INtwers De
nounced by the King of Greece.
PARIS. April 21. The correspondent of
La Journal at Athe-ns had an interview
with King George of Greece at tho palace
yesterday. His Majesty Is quoted as say
ing that ho believed to the last moment
that peace would be maintained, and did
his utmost to bring about a pacific solu
tion of the matter in dispute. The King
denied that Greece commenced hostilities
against Turkey, and argued that Turkey
was not comptlled to go to war because of
the incursion of a few insurgents whom
noljody could have restrained. Continuing.
King George said: "The truth is. we were
attacked because Turkey was ordered to
attack us. There never would have been
war but for certain intrigues which will
appear later. All the powers are more or
less against us. If they wanted war, they
have got it. Such is the result of the Eu
ropean concert. Europe must understand
that after forcing us to war there can be
no question of limiting it. Our Meet is des
tined to take an Important part, as will
soon le learned. Greece understands that
she must either be victorious or dl.-'appear.
Tho war may be prolonged and bloody, but
it is now too late to stop. A great crime
has been committed against right and hu
manity in the Cretan question, and the
chastisement has now commenced."
