Tothe CityC Connoil of New Orleans:
Gentlemen-It becomes my duty to report that
an examination of the wharves lately rebuilt by
the lessees in the several districts show that the
same have not bewn construeted in asoordanoe
with the spealsationas. The piles are not driven
to the proper depth and at a greater distanee
apart than ten feet from osntres, some being as
mueh a fourteen feet.
The lessees also neglected to fasten the string
ers at each cap with a rag-bolt. These omissions
were not tathorfisd by me and will tend to great
ly impair the durability and usefulness of the
wharvee and render them liable to yield at any
timoe to the weight of freight ordinarily placed
theeon by vessels receiving or unloading cargo.
I recommend that immedlate teps be n to
place a foodgate in People's Avenue Canal at
-attllty Bidge, In order to protect that portion
of the city from overflow. During northeasterly
wnads the Gulf banok the water through the
sanal and overflows its banks, oausing much
damage to property and greet injury to the resi
dents in the nesighborhood. This floodgate will
be necessary when the catal is completed to
ayoua lenennu, and should be construcneted now
togive proper reliesf.
The contractor for repairing the plank roads
has commened work and already completed
J.lla street. I recommend that the old planks
Ntket om the streets under contract be used in
the r of other roads.
I mbmit for your consideration preamble and
seaolhttos relative to the Oarondelet street rail.
toad sad recommend Immediate astion thereon.
Complaints have been several times received
from resideate alon the line of said oad. The
people have been deprived of the see of the

venienee by the failure of the parties to the char

The nuisance wharves of the various distriete
are n a very dilapidated condition and need im
mediate attention. A new wharf is needed in the
Fifth Distriot (AlgIers) and one in the Third Dis.
riot. The wharves in both districts are entirely
e, nd the exorment is now thrown intodhe
u'ly thlogugh a temporary sluite.
et sines bid were invited for the re
monstration of these wharves, but owing to the
anticipated scareity of funds by the ian..oal
oeders-and upon their advice- avoided the
acoeptane of any of seid bids. I now respect
rll ecommend that bids be again invited, upon
spelfAlltlons to be furnished by the City ur
The condition of Claiborne canal from Press to
Pladndstreet Third District merits immediate
attention. This canal is filled up to the level of
the street gutte's, and every rain causes an
overflow of theneighborhood.
Accompanying this report I submit a resolution
providing for the cleaning of same.

J. A. d'Hemeoourt, city surveyor:
Sir-Will you please answer the following
questions as your earliest convenience:
1. Are the leasees of the wharves performing
their work of building and repairing the wharves
according to the specification of their contract
with the cit ?
SHave the a sufficioent force at work to put
said wharves n a condition to satisfy the wants
of commere, and are the wharves already built
f sufficient strength to receive the freight to be
depIlted on them ?
SAre the leees using sound and good ma
terial in buldlng aend repairing the wharves and
landing., and in yo pinion are the wharvns
now beang bulit in the TffLrd District of esuo:ent
aie and strength to aooommodate the wants of
omameree, and is there any probability of said
wharve caving I even if they be construoted
stOitly according to epecifiaoetions ?
espeotfuily, OHAB. OCAVAN10,
Administrator of Commerce.
Soavaron's Onion,
New Orleans, Sept. 18, 1877.
Hon. Charles ravanac, Administrator of Com
merce:
Dear Sr--I have the honor to answer your
communication of yesterday, relating to the
wharves of the Third Distriot, as follows,
to wit:
1. The lessee of the wharves is not building
and repairing the wharves of the Third Distriot
arnaomr. in aooordance with speclfloations of his
contract the piles being at greater distances
and no braces being placed ; in all other points
they are in accoordance with the contract.
9. The lessee has, in my opinion, a suffioient
foree at work to put said wharves in time in a
condition to eatiery all the wants of commeroe,
and the wharves already built are of more than
sufficient strength and size to recelve and support
all the freight to be deposited uoon them.
. The lessee is sing sound and good mate
salin bliding and reparing the wharve and
landinge of the Third Distrifet, and the wharves
aready built and now being built are as I have
heretofore stated, of sumoient elso and strength
toaccommodate all the wants of oommeroe, and
should they be built ten times stronger they
willrave at the next low water of the river, and
will oontinue so to do yearly, until some plan oan
be devised by which the oaving of the bank can
be forever stopped.
In conclusion, I would state that the inhabi
tant of this distriot have had just apprehen
alone that the whnerves would not be built in time
to meet thenecessttelee of commeroe. The lessee
at that time a engaged repairing the wharves
"o the upper dlstrict, where the stationary banks
will allow work to be made at any stage of the
water. On or about the beginning of last August a
commlttee composed of his honor, the MIaor, Ad
s.inistrator Mouafi.y, yourself and myself made
a thorough examination of this district and found
the river banks, as well as the wharves, were
atving in the mot dreadful manner. Work was
begun abount the twentieth of August, even too
soon, as several batteree caved in after the com
mneneement of the work.
The extent of the work to be done together
with the very short epaoe of time allowed me
from the time work could be begun, to the sup
poed arrival of vessele, the 15th of October, led
me to make those wharves as they are built, to
meet in time the wants of commeroe.
I remain, very reepeotlifully,
J. A. D'HEMEOOUBT,
City BSurveyor.
