The, water Ispply i. twenty times more thnn could he used In lockage; the sum mit level or the canal 107 feet, and of the dividrle btwPen the oce~ans 15o firt. The cost of the canal as entimnated by the civil en gineer without nn allowance for contlngen ctes was $52,000 000. Rand the cost named by the corm mission $100,000.000. PANAMA RIOUTE? The Panama route was carefully lonat d at the request of the commnlsion, andl a line Inoated at, an elevation of 123 feet above the ocean, which will probably require an In (rease of four or live feet, as shown by the flood of last, November. The cort of the last named roullt on a common hblisH for labor and materials with Nicarnrua was more than 50 per cent greater, and will In fact coat more than double to execute the work. It would doubtless be IntereRting to the publhl and rl - vantageoues to havethe two last nramed rolutes passed over by able engineers with the in strumental surveys in hand to aporoxlmate the relative cost of execution. To Include the Tehuantn.ne route would be to Include what Is simply impossible of oexrutlIn by reason of the physical nonditions above named. The ohj-ct could not he to hope t*o make a canal there, but simply to prevent Its execunton elsewhere. At this time there are in Nicaragua two European narties who are asking a conces sion. In March last one was agreed upon to M. Blanchet, and only larked one vote In the Menate to confirm it. The problem then Is, shall we place no obstacle In the way of an American company, and thus probably ena hle It to secure a grant with the ideaof only permitting tolls that would he liberally re munerative, or shall we place these obstacles In the way and certainly throw the conces slon into the handsof Europe and allow them to Impose their proposed tolls upon us? They may very well say that wears not compelled to pass through the canal; it Is simply op tional whether we go that way or via Cape Horn. We cannot very well propose to dic tatewhat these tolls shall be. at least unless we do so in advance of the granting of a con ession by Nicaragua, and even then it would seem somewhat pretentious in view of our inability tq support such a demand, either in reason or by material force. I may add that the commisslon appointed by the President In 187., which sent in its re oort In 1876, had all of thenformatlon thought necessary ree..rting all the region involved in short, the only tworoutes worth looking at aIPanama an·d Nalesrst, Iand they oaly to edtablish the relative approxilmate o0t of ext ecutior.

TIHE £NULIIHI CUIOPS. Unfavorable Reports Fully Confirmed by the Mark Lane Expres. Isonio, Jan. r5.--rhe Mark Lane Exprese'e annual Irop returns ftron 411 (orrtptudents, reprr'senting every county in England, fully conflirmr the worst accounts regardirIg these trme failure of the crop4. The K'cpres saye: 'The returns are the most deiscura~nin we have over published. Of the 429 diestrict from which returns were cdleoted, not one has produced a wheat or pea crop of over bhe averagn; only two represent a barley crop, and onlty six a tbea onrop as over the avera. Oats la the only cr(t p that, is not thoroughly bad. An examnlation of ton years' tablet will show that. we have had worse oat eropr and as had a beau crop, but for wheat, barly and pens there has been no year of the tea,. and we might go further hack, not nearly so unfruitful. Even with respect to oats and beans, if weight and quality be taken Into aoc,.int, no year of the ten has given such bad results. To wheat this disastrous failure of crop Is most strikingly shown by the tact that olnl 4 out of 429 returns represent It up to the avetage. The remarks of our n.rrespondents as to the econditlon of grain and pulse are as dis heartening as the aceO lnuts of the yield. ---- - - .ter-- --_ The Wl.ieslalppl LegealaturOe.
