The Thames Tunnel. Dr. Hum
phrey in one of his letters from England,
gives the following interesting description
of the Thames Tunnel.
This great work was commenced seve
ral years ago, about a mile below London
Bridge. It is agreed on all hands, I be
lieve, that if the tunnel could be finished,
and secured against the irruptions of the
superincumbent waters, it would be a pub
lic accommodation, as the navigation of the
Thames will not permit the erection of any
bridge in that part of the city ; and the
river is so constantly filled and almost
choked up, with all kinds of water craft,

Ship Canal at Niagara. We are
indebted to the Hon. Joel Terrill for a
copy of the report of Capt. Williams, of
the Corps of Engineers, in relation to a
canal round Niagara Falls, to connect the
waters of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
The plan contemplates a ship or steam
hnt rnal. with locks 200 feet long, 50
feet wide, and 10 feet deep ; the lift not
generally to exceed 10 feet to each lock.
The entire elevation to be overcome, is
something more than 300 feet. Several
routes are examined in the report, and
the expense is estimated at from 2 1-2 to 5
millions of dollars. Jovr, of Con.
Respectable Persons. It has been
sometimes thought difficult to define, ex
actly, the class of people that have an
exclusive claim to be considered respecta
ble. They have doubtless overcome this
difficulty in our sister of New York, for
we find in the Times of Tuesday the fol
lowing paragraph, which 3tates, distinctly,
their exclusive privileges: Bost. Cour.
We stated yesterday, that persons
placed in the watch-house on Saturday
night, cannot get bailed till Monday.
This is not always the case. Persons of
respectability, brought before the magis
trates on Sunday morning, are admitted to
bail, though in most cases prisoners are
held over till the following day."
