THE HYDROG1RAPIIIC COM4MISSION.
'saIsU *UPOT3tO O THE CITY UOUNIIL. NxW OELEANS, April 8, 1878. Bon. Ed. Pilsbury. Mayor of New Orleans: Sir-The Board of Engineers, convened at the request of the City Council "to examine and report upon the means necessary to pro tect the wharves and harbor from the incur sionse of the river," beg to submit the follow lfferring to your letter of November 17 1877. the engineering information requested of the Board was as folows: 1. A thorough and complete survey of the river and its bank from the upper to the low1.r limit of the city, giving cross sections of tbme streamevery halt mile and the direction of the ourrent. 2. A plan for the temnporary preservation of the bantks and wharves from destruction -to apply 'nly to the Itost expose( points anti adapted to the present resosurcom of the city which are limited, ac,,mnpauled by estinate*. S. A more general arnd Icotpreheusive plan embracing h tie riv.r front of the Second and Third 1)istricte as a perInanent work, with estimates so as teo 1i commI ruone d and cirit1ed ax graduallv, as the future prosperty of the city may admit. \ At a former session of the board held in November last, a preliminary report was r'.n dered your Honor respec. ting the condition of affairs along the city front. II thi the ml.Ian. necessary to be taken to preserve the most exposed points (which were at the foot .f Sor apuru street, and at the foot of Montegut street) were prospened, and the exelcutious of the plans were entrustevt to and carried out under the direction of the (litv Surveyoor. A general plan also was outlined which was to embrace the entire . ity front from Carrollton to a point below the Uuited States liarracks, or so much of it at ihast cis lnode.l perinanenit protection. , The I~.nsrd wts unprepared at that time to decide upon all the det;tils to be observed in this pet maunnt plan of proti ctlon, owing to the lack of the necessary iuf ,rnua tion respecting the c editi, n of the caving banks, their extent, their comp-,osition, slope, depth of water, etc., all of which could only be furnished by an .-xhaustive and extensive survey such as called for by your letter. This survey was unutdertaketn unlller the per sonal supervision of the hal al mlembers of the board, with aid furnish d Iby the government and by the city, and was cert led t , a stccehes ful termination. It Is complete and thorough in all the details nc.ss try for a proper studty of the problem submitted to the l ortld. It ex tended from a plnt above Currollton to a point below the Barracks, elntlr.tcitlng also the right bank of the river, and was made in three sections. Section 1 started from a point some 3300 feet above the Metalrlo road, at the upper end of a plank revetment, where there is a wide bat ture, and followed the leit bank to the Or leans Park where there is also a wide bat ture, a total distance of 22,243 leet. At Inter vals of 100 feet lines of sounllings were made, extending out from 300 to 4.t0 fo t, and where there were caving banks intermedllate lines were sounded. Thirty-four sections were also sounded across the river in this stretch, and from 100 to 120 soundings were locatet on each section. Thirty of these cross sections were nearly at the same points as those made in thesurvey of 1851 by Capt. (now general) IH um phreys. From the Orleans Park to Canal street, there being no caving of tle It-it bank, no survey of that line was made. Section 2 cowumen ed at Canal street, and the shore line was run from that p int ti, the Blaughter-House, a distance of 21,800 feet, On this stretch soundings were mnade at each 100 feet as before, extending out into the river from 800 to 400 feet. Twenty cross sections were also sounded at nearly equal intervals but only about eighty soundings were lhcated on each one. Section 3 included the right bank of the river, and commenced at a point 3450 feet above the lock at Westwego, and extended down to the point at Algiers, and is some 47,000 feet in length. Soundiogs were made at intervals as in the surveys of the other sections and 19 cross sections were sounded across the river between the lower end of the Carrollton section and Canal street, thus fill ing that interval. Gauges were kept at Carrollton, Canal street, the mint, and at the United States Barracks, and all soundings were rediuced to the same plane of reference as that of the Delta survey, and reads on the Carrollton gauge, 15.70 The condition of the banks as developed by the survey, is as follows: From the upper end of the Carroliton survey to station 186 there is a wide batture and no caving going on at present; front station 186 to station 91 (at head of Carrollton Avenue), there is more or less caving of the bank throughout the whole distance. Between sta tions 140 and 157 some 500 feet of the bank have caved in since s185, and at the Car rollton Hotel which is at the lower end of the present cutting, in that time some 200 feet have gone in. The total length of the caving in this section is 9200 feet. From stati mn 91down to station 55 there have been about 200 feet caved in since 1858, but there is little, if any, caving going on now, excirpt in two places-one about 30, and the other about 900 feet long. Below station 55, there is a fill at present and a wide batture. Below Canal street front Morgan's wharf, at station 10 to station 10;l, a distance of 15,000 feet, the bank needs nmore or less pro tection. It has, however, only been deemed advisable to apply protective measures to the slope of the bank forom Morgan's wharf to Congress street, a distance oof 7500 feet, leving the remaining portion of the cil y below that point to be protected by a new levee. On the right bank the space through which the caving takes plaece extends from station 49 to 176 below the locks, and from station 296 to 476 above and at Algiers, a total length of 31,700 feet. The board, how ever, does not deerm it at present absolutely necessary to apply the works of protection to this entire stretch of bank, but only to a por tion embracing Nine Mile Point. The loca cations of the different caving banks at which It is proposed to apply the wot ks of protection can better be underste fd by reference to the sketch map accompanying the report, while at the same time an insp.ection of the index and detailed maps will give all the informa tion respecting the depths of water, slope of bank, composition of samte, etc., much more fully than can be indicatcd or enumerated in the report. The results of the survey of the banks show that they are composed of a hard blu n mud, with intermediate soft strata. Thelsn soft strata outcrop at varying depths, as shown on adjacent lines of soundings. In some cases they are quite regular, in others quite irregular, as if d.eposited upon a slope. Tihe cavings result from the saturation of these layers of soft materiral, which are afterwards washed or cut out, causing the superincum bent mass to fall or Elide into the river. Th'lis caving takes place mostly upon a falling river, Te high water seenming to act by its pressure in sustiliing tihe bank. The~e soft strata occur at variouls (ldepths from near the: surface to near the bilttolli of the river, and the greater or less amounlllt of cave s.etnts to depend upon their relative position. In order then to retain the bank in its nat ural position the remedly to be applied would seem to be somne nmethi.i by whichl the cutting out of the defective strata could be prevent ed. This is best subserved by applying to the bank a revetment extending so ats to cover the whole slope, or so miuch of it as is likely to be affected. The banks along the city front present conditions not unfavor able to the suctessful application of a pro ject, such as was outlined in our preliminar3 report of November last. The general nlethoc indicated there was to cover the slope of the bank with a revetment of brush and stone in such shapes and forms as best suited the par ticular locality where it was to be applied. While much more costly applications o timber and stone might subserve the objeci in view those of brush and stone in the shape of matt ng applild to the banks have the me it, that wh lletsuitabbl fr the pulrlming, the are comparatively cheap, are durable, arn easilyapplied, andon account of their plia billty can be well adapted to the irregula slopes of the banks c:utsed by the caving. A' the sametime the carpeting of the bank ii such a manner causes no undue . ntraction o the water way arnd allows the current to mov along in its natural course. At the upper secthin of the river at Caroll ton, and on thie right bank above Algiers where there are no wharves, it is proposed, i accordance with the above views, to cover th slopes from ashort d tacre above low water will beorottecti by a layer of brush formed into rafts and ballasted with stoe sufficient to k ep them In position. Along the section of the river from Mor uan's wharf to the toot of Congress street, it is roposed to forrm a bulkhead extending the entire distance in a line with the outer row of wharf piles by driving piles in pairs, the dis sance between the centres of each pair being six feet, and between the piles of each pair three feet. These piles in p irs are bolted to gether at low water and at the top. Between the piles and extending up and down stream. brush facines are piled up to low water mark, forming, so, to speak, a brush wall. Above low water mark on the outside of the piles, plank are placed extending to high water mark. From the foot of this row of pilos, extending out as far as may be neces sary. to cover all defective strata, a layer of brush and stone in suitable form is laid upon the slope. The object In not continuing the revetnment clear up to the banks, as in the other distriots, is that it has bOun found from experience that great difficulty and expense I will attend the removal of the great number of piles and timber work now forming the wharves and occupying a portion of the slope• needing protection, and which it would be mIec'ssary to remove were It determined to c arpet the entire slope, adding consitOn)Lhly to the expense and more than the circum sta nces wouldi warrant. Statistics at the disposal of the board indi cate that the largest interests involved are in section 2, from Morgan's wharf to Congress str(eet. It therefore seems expedient that tlo proposed measures of protection should be first applied to that part of the shore. Similar reasons indicate that the work on the (carrollten ser'tion, No. I, shouldl be next d(one, and, finally, that work alwove Nine-mile Point, on the right bank, which is essential as a pro teHtion to the works in section 1 and the shore below. The following are the estimates for the pro te'tion of so niuch of the city front as the botrd deems absolutely essential at the pres em't time to the preservation of the wharves and harbor, though eventually the protection of the entire front may have to he undertaken. 'These estimates being approximations, the board has sought to make theon sufficiently large to cover all contingencies, leaving to the engineer who may have charge of tihe con struction of the work a certain latitude, whereby such charges as may appear neces sary, and as circumstances call for, can be made as the work progresses.

The board desire to express their acknowl edgement of the valuable services rendered by Commodore C. P. Patterson, chief of United States Coast Survey; the oflhcers and crews of the United States men-of-war En Strprise and Canonicus; Messrs. H. C. Col lins W. H. Williams, G()o. d'Hemecourt, M. W. Darton, H. S. DIouglas, Eugene Thomp son and Capt. M. W. Francis and their assist ants. We would respectfully recommend to your Honor that provision be made for completing the maps, etc., of the survey, and the careful preservation of the same as a valuable con Stibution to the hydrography of the river in e the viein!ty of New Orleans. All of which is respectfully submitted. (G. WEITZE,, t W. H. H. BENYAURID, I C. W. HOWELL, B. M. HARROD, . J. A. D'HEMECOUR(T. o ROmEiT C. Woon, Secretary. The Boston Post says "If any member of the Cabinet can put a stop to stealing, he de serves to be encouraged. No doubt in a - moral view of the question, he should; but then if heasks for an appropriation of $175,0f)I to cheek a theft of $2000, doesn't it senm asn though the interest of economy and the fear of temn ptation, demand that the reform should be muzzled, and the stealing go on? A Georgia paper tells of a most unfortunate man in that State who has accidentally killed f i five men since the war. One was slain by an ax that slipped from his hand; the second - was drowned by the upsetting of a boat which he was managing; the third was shot through the head, mistaking him for a tur key; the fourth he killed by a tree that he was felling and the lifth he killed at a log-rolling. The sixth man ought to be spry with his weapons. -------'·eO- --- · HOTEL ARRIVALS. CASSIDY'S HOTEL.-S M Ruttledge. Lower Coast: C K Dale and wife. Louisiana: H II K(ller. St Mary parish.

IThe DMOoRAT is res. nsible for none of f the views expreseed in the comuncations under this head; but no oommunications will be printed except from responsible parties. d 0 THE STEANBOAT INTEREST. Editor Democrat-Permit me to ask space in the columns of your valuable paper to re- - ply to a paragraph in the City Item of a late date. We hope the Blanks Odachita Line ( will he able to supply a few more boats like 5 the Hanna and Wilson, and exclude the "vam pires that have eaten up their profits for the t past season." Such, If true, would reflect against the men forming the company. But , for the benelit of the misinformed and minted i editor let mie say that the pxooling system has proven a great benefit to all the boat owners, saving some from being sold out by the United States marshal. By making a care- I fill survey you will find that all the f gentlelnmn conposring the Red RIver Company I are of a foreign importation except Capts. liroadnman and Thorn. You will find that (Capts. Carlton and Sweeny are no strangers in the Onuachita trade, while Capts. Hodges, Delahousaye', Perry, Montgonmry, Delfart and Arthur have an ilentity of from four to tnll years. Tile above gen.tlemen. In honneo t on with the Blauk Bros., form the firm under i the name of the New Orleans and (lOuachita River Transprtation Company. Capts. Lee, of the, Seminole, and Wenzel, of the Clara S., are the only ones running outside. They hav Ing no illtrest In the earning s of the I cmpany, of course they are not "vanm Spires." I hen who are they ? Do the ier- I chanlts of New Orleans wish to proscrlhe, any man rr Iset of 'men for coming her.- and offering to run their boats in our Southern tributaries? Do they not want plety of t ge tonnage to increase their facilities for shipping merchandise and to bring in ý - Iads of the staples-cotton, sugar, rice and Smolasses ? Further, let me show the absurdi - tv of the C ty Item's man where he says "they don't leave a dollar here." Ask the I coal men if they don't buy and pay for coal ; ask the grocery man if they don't buy pro visions; ask the newspaper men if they don't advertise; ask the laboring man e if they don't pay the going wnges. - And as some evidence, you seldom seeo a Western boat sold out here for debt. I - am quite sure that the principal owners of the steamboat tonnage of New Orleans have no affiliation with the suggestion rnade by the wise imtn of the City Item. lHence, it is to be hoped that his warning may fall stillborn; and any and all, if from the Icy mountains who have boats, money and enterprise, will come among us, heeding not the suggestion made by a man who could not buy a "stage plank," much less a steamboat.
