To the Editor of the Democrat: I see by your valuable paper of the sixth In Stnt you are kind enough to offer your col umns forthe expression and opinions of river men and engineers on the above subject. Now I am no river man, and not much of an en glneer. but I have studled the overflows of this valley between the Mississippi and Ouachita lrers.and find out this valley is what is termed , double inclined plane. inclining both south and west; also that the west bank of the Mis. alsippti tiver is higher than the country west of it for some one hundred miles or more. Now for Droof for the above assertion: First-All the tributaries of the Ouaehita river from the east rise or head nearer the Mietae Saipi river than when they empty in the Ona shita on a parallel line. . Second-There is no outlet Into the Miseis aippi river above the mouth of lied river. Third-I understand that the engineer in his report (of the survey made for the route of the old Vicksburg. Shreveport and Texas Railroad) ayas that he found the bank of Ouachita river at Monroe to b# some twenty feet lower than e bank of the Mississippi river at or near It. Fourth-Oapt. Aiken, In his communication published in your issue of the sixth instant. states at the time of his writivg that an im meaose volume of water was vassing Into the Atchafalaya river fr, m nhe Mi-lississitp river. through the mouth of Istei river. to the above Sasufithient proof that the country west of the ellIssiaLpi river for some distance is lower than the bank of the Mtissisippi river, as wsater flows westward. Now the next question to pro.tect that c..untry lron annual ov-r ows. I believe that Is the object proposed. I think Ot t. Aiken is wrong (twntan e says the outlet of thbe IatlsestipIl rivtr into Atchatalaya river benefits Pointe c;Oupee turt-h)i tor this reason: The fact familiar to every one who observes th's course of brooks or rivers. is - this. whenever the bed of a rive r contraets the current becomes more rapid. nad. on the ecn trary., l it wicens. the streatm becomes o more aluggish. For proof we will t.,ke iapt. iEads's jettles at the mouth of the MIlýissippti tiver. To remove I he bar Caipt. E ds did not propose to raise tlte sultace of the MIssIssippi river at that point to enable vessels of largoe size to enter without trouble; on the contrary, his ob ject was to contract the bed of the MissIsaippl river at that point. knowing it would Increse the veloeity of the current and thereby wteh out the bar. We know that the force of currents are more or less resisted and their velocIty retarded by the friction which takes place between those surfaces of the liquid and the solid which are in contact, and this explains a fact which may be observed in all rivers: That the velocity of a stream is always greater at the centre than near the bank. and the velocity at the surface is greater than the velocity at tiht bottom; there. fore if the mouth of dt t ilVer be cloeedi it would be similar to contraction of the bed at that point, which would increase the v.locity of the current of the river, thereby pausing it to wash out at the t,ottom of the river. If it works satisfactorily in one place, why Lot in another? For no one doubts the success of the jettles. Nlow. for turther benefit oh:bained if the mouth of Bed river was lo ed. It would certainly g.ve the Atchafalaya river less water to carry off. and thereby enable it to carry, ff more rapidly all the waters of the hed and Ouachita rivers and tributaries, which would be a great protec tion for the now overflowed districts of the Ouachita river and its trloutatien, for we all know that if you make the outlet as groat or greater than the inlet of all streams the water will be contined to those streams wthich would in this Instance protect a very large amount ot the finest cotton lauds lin the State-I may say in the world-and as the Atchafalaya river would have less water to contend against or i carry off it is certain the country on both sides of Sald stream would be benefited. As to the damage to navigation that Ciapt. Aiken speaks of I know nothing about, but I d,, know if this country is drown-d out by over ftl wa and noth ing madt, we will not have muctl use for navi gation. And furthermore. i' w l! do away wth the comtlsh t of that ererlas:i,.g bar at the mouth of lRed river. Yours. retpecfully, E.P. HARRISON. Layvillhe. iiebland Parish. La . Masch lo, 1co. MATHEMATICAL SAVI G. NEW ORLEANS. March 12. 1880. To the EdiPor of the Democrat: Concerning an alleged labor-saving discovery in mathematical sci-.'ce. Mr. Theodore Faber writes to the New York $Sun. as f. Ilows: As proved bye comparison of the number of gures used in two diff-rent meth da of ce tcu laions, namely: the told ,&h "l m-thod of c I culatingthes nare of a circle, and the New School methbod-the former based upon the interminable ratio, 1: 14159. a- between diame Sterand drenmferenes, and the latter based upon Faber's ratio. 9: 8. as between diameter and square rootof area. The l.tter is irrefutable; the former resting on a proposition which has been demonstrated to be faJne by two of the is u greatest mntlnmattlcans that ever lived. An exampleo will best lshow the dtitreouno: Allnlme iameter of a circlae - 1. Old aa(,lthod.

Is 274.:1(5 square miles. and the diameter of a circle comprising the same area would be 5s59.26l miles. This is found by re versing the FaIber method; that is. by extract ing the squTre root of the area 1274.350) which would be 523.79. M.ultply 523790 by Inueo and dtvi'e by eight and 53s9 ad waould be obtained as the diameter. With 59to 2 as the diameter the area is found by Ihe Faber method and the true method. respectively, by the following pro Faber Method.

The FatIer methhod requlres sixty-three figures antd eleven lines; the true nlmethod sixty tlaures and ten lines. and under thile last allmed proeCas it will be soon that the calculatilon required tl easi'r. Taking the diameter of acircle at 5s9 96 (which would lenarly equal the areal of Tox s) as a basis, to flud the area woulld reqtllre lli. lures bh the old school mnethod, slxty-th. e by the Faber mt hod and lsixty by t he true method. 111111 tlow preptl iilg It rtablar statamlent of the area of each State and Territory. the squlare root of the Ionh area, I1and1 tile it -tlleater of aI ,.irele comprising an area 1 1ual to that of each Maate or 'Territory.

The difference in favor of the true method is 235 fig. r s, and the calculation in each case is somewhat easier. and forty- svy n lines of ,pace is Csaved. (Under the old school system the diameter must first ie obtained.) What do you thfuk of the true method of finding the dlanmter of a clrcle, the area being given, or of ftlntllng the area of a circle, the diameter b inag given? SAXET, IMMIGRATIOA . To the Editor of the Democrat: Having noticed lately many well pointed articles in your able tournal on the subject of immigration to the South. more especlaly to Louisiana. may I make bold for exposing my vi-ws on this subject. No doubt the present labor Is moving from our plantations, and must be replaced by other-thrifty. hardy workers of the coil-men brought up to farming, possessed of ambition to secure a home of their own in our State. With this class of immigrants in a few years our people would re cuperate from th " ill effects of bad laws under which we have been ground down by tiadical rule. I have no'iced in the telegrams of late propositions to brtin the Coinamurn from California. and must say I was astonished at gentlemen of our citry inviting them here. 'I hey are w l llaware that the United States government must protect these people at all hazard+.. TLhey are nmt the race we re quire. Besides. Louisiana has had qluite enough of United rtates rule in the past, and shoull now b- independent enough to Lull her own goveraorrut. lIelaud is suffering-Amer ica is cen.tributing m ney for their reli.f. We want some of tho-e people to coma here-to work our cct:on and sugur Waltr.ti uns. to buy our uncultivated lands and make their homes here. No country offers such iuduca.,m uit- as Louis'ana for che a' linad. whicht aen be be uatgt from f1 t er acre up from priiv-'e Det.tes, en t-red under United States ho- etead ia.s. or from tha-Srate at low prics. These emigrants. onsc. here. would bring their triands In a short period of titre, who, by their industry. would add to tcur prosperity and in ere.- e teo re, nue of our ttateO by taxes on their tarul . and under h; pres' nt c0nstitution every mill 711 be reauulred to meet expenses. Tnese pDoptl would bee -me land owners: stock breeding would be their chief e: pD'omeut, knowing we:' as they do that it Is most pr.fitable. Our Statte has no money to give toward immigration at present. but it owns l-unds which. If donate- a law figure to p-rmanent settlers, would bricg in much by taxes from those parties who would go to work on them.

Hoeworth. one of the Her aid's lellef Commlttee.] Let me give you a sample of what I saw In many scores of huts, and In a few which are thatched and of stone, and stand on the edge of a bog which affords them peat for fuel. They contain three small rooms. One is the room where the household lives. Through a small hole in its roof the kitchen smole is generally forced to escape. There is almost a peat famine this year on account of wet ' weather. The only fuel consists of a bunch of green twigs. Another room is for the cow, if they are happy enough to possess one, which is rarely the case. The cow is part of the family and always goes through the front door. In the third room, which is perhaps eight or nine feet Equare, the family sl8eps. They have one bed, with two thin, worn-out blankets, and here four of a household of nine must sleep, not lengthwise, but cross wise, covering themselves as best they can. The ret pile up a small bundle of straw in the corner and sleep on it. Pressed by hun ger, they have eaten all their store of pota toes. The only food In the whole house is a few pounds of Indian meal, which they mix with water and make into a stirabout. This Ii all they have, and all they will have until the autumn. What wonder, then, that they should be disheartened and discouraged ? . --~~ --- The New Orleans, Mobile and St. Louts Through Line, Is positively the only line running Pullman sleepers through to 8'.
