As tnjr old friend, Mr. SiuurtAKruwil to
remark In am noon in a while, “ It neve rains
but it pours." For the last two weel» we
have had a verification of the remark , ami it it
requires two week* to Drove HitJrrtflio '«.eks

for during the [amt fortnight it lias rained all

“ for a few day*," and rule it does -for great
ami beneficent purposes.
let us see about thcae purpose*. First and
forenuet. the small rivers, tributary to the
Mississippi, are all foil,and the mill-logs which
were cut ou their baoks during the past win
ter, and several former winters, are coming out
and moving down mi the surface J*o me folks
ter than milk within her hanks, there is great
impropriety In using the term Gwom,) of the
Mississippi. Platte river full, and loga which
were cut two years ago are coming out with a
rush, to lace the steel at 81. Anthony and other
places. It ia feared, howeviv, that if we do not
hare lair weather pretty soon, off the logs in
Platte will not reach the stihurlM of the white
settlements but will be sent hither ami thither
jta ‘its at'ih «ecsUr* .wad , <o>iums..'.dniktam l
milre in extent, amt there remain lor more than
"a few days." However, Oapt. Nat Tißnm*
understands the navigation of Platte river per
fectly, and aa hr has a great number of lugs
therein, it is fair to suppose thatc he will
"make hay while the sun shines"—l should
say while the rain ahiues— and that every log
in Platte river will come out and take a plunge
in the white water of Hauk Rapid*.
Secondly, speaking ol high water, the great
river itself, the mighty Mississippi, is full; and
l verily believe that the I Gnu lie ami the Khiue
both together, though so much talked of in the
newspapers, do not diacharge so much water nt
their months as nina over Sauk Rapid*, two
thou sand miles from New (Means, which is with
in one hundred and thirty miles ol its ileboui lie
mcnl. Were it not that this great rivor is oG
structed by rapids and boulders ami its volume
wastrel by lieing divided amongst numerous
■ islands, steamboats might leave Now Orleans
i and proceed upward to Sandy Lake and through
that to within forty miles of lake Superior.—
There is plenty ol' water at all times lor any
steamGmt. but no Gmtcan dodge the boulders,
|or climb the awful rapids that intervene bc
; tween St. Anthony and the outlet of Sandy
lake. Well, let that be. The oaisr hiveii

rising all the time, and the oldest inhabitant

i let her rip !
I told you in my last that many logs have
! liecn put afloat aliove here, and hoped the boom
; at St. Anthony would he strong enough to hold
them. I made the wish in a spirit of prnphe
' cy, for I knew that there would be a tremendous
! rush, and that a great many logs would go by
—like the people rushing into Tammany Hall
I —without tickets. We have heard since then,
flat the limestone structure of the (alls has Gvn
severely "exercised" by its too near proximity
to the pineries, and that the untutored logs,
like the foolish buflalo. have ruahivl on and
taken the flnal plunge, regardless of the ex
pense. What the upshot of the aflair will be
ia more than I know . but 1 think tlat tlie
steam saw-mills in St. Louis will have more
logs from the upper Mississippi to saw than
; they aver had before in one season
