Progress of the Work on the Mis
sissippi Jetties. To the S9a in the Next Sixty Days. An Eugiuetriog Fcul Which Was Regarded by President Grant ?s the Capstone of Hit Administration. MASTERLY ENGINEERING Captain James B. Kads, the engineer la charge of the opening up of navigation to tl.e Mississippi Valley by lbs removing ol tbe obstacle* at ibe mouth ol ibe Mississippi Klver, has been stoppiug lor several days at Hid bl. Nionolas. Captain iisds, lo a person unacquainted with Ills peculiarities, might seem lo be about ibo last man ill Ibe world wbo would be so lected lor the complotlon ol tills stupendous undertak ing. A briol lace-to-fact' study ol ibo mail, however, dispels every cbaace lor such a conclusion. He Is apparently from fltty to fllty-two years ol age, and wull preserved, bating tbe grizzly tinge ol bulr and beard tbat a life of exposure, risk and aietital anxiety would bring. He is a little above tbe medium height, of spare but eroct tiguro, and of strong tortures, de noting In all tbelr placed outlines aeli-posiesaion and determination. Captain Kads was touud yesterday at tbe St. Nicho las, busily engaged. It ha* been suggested to blm luring bis present visit ttiut on a former visit, pend ng tbe deoatou of tbe Board ol Eugineers, Convened at tbe Kiith Avenue Hotel two years* ago, to consider tbe feasibility of tbe accomplishment ol tlies> engineering plans, that President (Irani bad said that il he coulu see the suc cessful end ol this work bo uskod for no other distinc tive mark ol his administration. There were prosent it that tune as members ol tins Board the engineer who had rutunvpd tho oDstructluus Irom the inouth of .ho l)anul>?, now Sir Charles flarcourt, General W. W. Sumpbroya and some eight or teu others. Captain Kids said yesterday:?"Tho flrst work on .be jetties was comiuencail almost exactly two years igo, tbe 14th of June, aud sinco tbat time a clear In :rense o! twelve ioel in depth has been secured through the bar at the month ot trie South 1'uss, and a much greater depth Ihroagh the shoal In the Mississippi River which obstructs tbe entrance from tbe river into the l'ass. The pass between the so two obstructions is about twelve miles long, wttti a depth of at least thirty, three or thirty-lour feot throughout its entire length." Mr. liads was desirous of improving the Southwest l'ass, anJ his proposition to tbat end was carried through tbe House ol Kepretculativej by a neariy unanimous vote. Motives ol economy, however, ou the part ol the Senate luduoed ihut body to niter the bill by which Mr. Kuds wax roquirad to im prove (be South l'ass, which is not moro than ono half the width and ouo-bali tho depth ot the South wast l'ass, the prico lor the greater pass being fS,UUO,OOU Tnat lor tbo lesser Is $'>,250,IHJU. No shoal obstructs tbo upper end ot Southwest l'ass, and alt ol tbe works lor Us improvement would have been ruiitlueu to its luoulb, whereas the sboul si tbe upper cno ol the South l'ass has iuvolved the necessity of aorks quite as great in extent, though less costly than thuso at the mouth ol the l'ass. some ideu ol tbe extent ol the works at tbo bead of tbo 1'itsg may be loruied when ibo fact is staled that the river at this point is oue mile and lbreo-i|uarters wido, and that the voiuino of flowing water here is ten times as great ?s that which is diacuarged by the South l'uss, and the works which have Ue'ii constructed at ibis point 'by Mr. r.ails absolutely control, and harness, us it were, Irom one shore to the other, lue eutire volumo ol tbe wuoie river. Southwest l'ass discharges about tour times as murb Hater as South 1'nss and fuss a I'Uutre discharges about five limes aa mucb as South l'uss. The principle upou which the improvement is baaed la the concentration ol the Mowing waior. The water enter ing tbe South l'ass was spread out over a wide ex panse ol probably equal to one ipiarier ol tbe entire vidtb ol the river ut tho head oi the passes, and lowed into tbo l'aaa through a tunnel shaped entrance, tbe throiu of wtilch was not more than one quarter so side. The shoal occupied tbo uppor end or widest part of this entrance and oxlendod up over hplf a mile Into tbe main river, tbe greatest depth over ft at low water being about teurieeu feet, 'to concentrate tbe How across this shoal into a channel of only .H50 Icet iu wiulh was tbo problem lo ho solved. Works were eroclcd obstructing about two thousand loot of tbo width ol trie river, by which inu waterllowiug into the pus? was compelled to enter Oelwetn parallel dykes SMI leet apart. Ol course this greatly reduced the quantity entering tbn l'aa? aud completoly suspended lor tho time being the scouring between the jollies. Ibo ex cluded water was, of courso, thrown into the two grout passes, and, lo prevent their enlargement, a submerged work or willow mattress sill 7it leet wide anil i leet thick was laid down Irom tbu main shore ol tbu river iu a depth in many places of over ISO leet entirely across the entrance into each ono ol ibe groat passes, and was thoroughly loaded with stone. The magnitude of Him work alona may be interred from tho lucl that each oue of Itieao sills is ovor three thousand leet in length. I boy join the otber works at the head ol the rasa, near tbe middle ol the river, and with them emhroco the entire bed oi the Mississippi, wllb the exception ol tbe 8.>o loot chaunel they aero de a:gned to create through tho shoal. The exclusion of the natural How of water into South I'sas caused n de posit lo be made throughout the length ot lue l'aaa and through thojettied cnacnel across the sea bar, aud Mr hads considers tbat the deepening ot tbechan nel between the jetties was dulaveu six or eight months Irom the necessity of having to temporarily exclude so uiucb ol the natural how into tno l'ass during the period roqulrod lor the enlargement of the channel iiirough the shoals. The (Irsl ttoo I ot tbe sea sun did nut arrive at the head ol tbu passes until about the 1st ol February, prior to which time tno works at the head ol tbe l'.iss hud produced little or no etlecv, Tbe change wronuht by the llood was t imply marvellous. In ten days a channel was cut through b> the current lo a depth ot twenty icet and having a width of 2U0 foet, where but lourteun in depth ex isted before. Tins rapid enlargement of the new chauUei continued lor over two months una restored the original volume of discharge through the Pass. The largest ships in tbo world can now pass truely through It. When Una occurred tho current went vigorously to work not ouly to r move the temporary deposits made in the l'ass and between the jetties, hut also to enlarge tho channel previously made across tbo bar at thu mouth. Tim depth bore, although II had aoniewbat diminished prior lo the lit ol April, was still Hiiltlcient lor the passage of vessels drawing over twenty loot Irom tbo Mississippi River to tho aei. Tho enlargement which baa recently again commenced between tbe jetties was lirst ni>iced at their upper onus about the 1st of April, and li has now extended down through a mile and three qmrtera ol thoir length, m which dl'tanco the least width lor twenty-two leet In depth la 2iU leet, leaving about half a lutlo be tween tins point and the Ueep tea water to enlarge irom Ita present dimensions to a width of 200 feet by a depth ol tl, which Is m cessary lo secure t.i Mr. Hads the uaxl payment ol $000,000 irom tho government. Tbo enlargement of th" upper portion ol tho jetty channel within the iut two or three months h is been really wonderlul. A long stretch of tbe channel, where there was originally out 13 or 14 feet, has a depth nowhere tesK than 40, and in many p:.?. es the channel ;s from fit) lo 70 loci deep. Tho regular surve)* made irom lime to time by the resi dent < nglnoor, Mr. Iv I* Corthell, show a Co miaul advanco ol tins enlargement down aircutu toward the sea. fro much material bus txon removed in this enlargement that the current has been nnable to carry the whole amount ot It at ones to the deep sea water, uit l about lourteen per cent ol the amount rnmov d has temporarily lodged ID the channel below. Tbo navigable depth, however, bus rarely been redu? e 1 from this cause to less than twenty tcet, and at the rate ot progress which the enlargement is making tbe entire lout by jfun leet channel will be through to the sea iu about siliv duys the quantity ot d< poatl removed in tbn last ninety flats Irom bot?e< n the jetties would fill a space a mile long and 300 teat wide to the depth of ton leet. Curoiul surveys mauo last May In an area ol about liliy acres mime.(lately In advance of the jollies ou tho uuior slope ol tbe bar developed tbe remarkable tact that the water has usep?ncd throughout Una entiro nrea an average of nearly live feet. 1'bls is believed to be caused by the littoral current of ibo sea txnig driven under tbn oultlow of the river. It pusses luo mouth from eael to west and nearly at rluhl angles to tho rivar discharge, and, as tlic depth ol ibo river's volum* la now twenty teel, the sea current baa been i*roed to nxoavate moro room lor itaeit uudarnosth tbo outflow of liie rlvor.

A CAlt LOAD or SEA LIUNS FROM THE PACIFIC COAST?MBW TOBK'S IATK.ST AURIVALS. Hundred! of people gathered at tbo Vanderbllt depot, In liudton street, yesterday morning to witness the removal ol a car load of sea lions wblcb bad ar ri*cu from the Pacific coast for Messrs. Coup ft Hoicho's New York Aquarium. Tno poculiar and unmelodlous cry of tbe ampbebians coald be heard for blocks around. Each ol the sixteen Bea lions had a sepsrato woodon cage. The singularity of their situation mado them howl to tbe loll extent of their capacious throats. Outside ol thoir vocal gymnastles they lay perlectly still lii their cages and lookod lazily baok at their spectators. At noon they woro the sensa tion of that section of tho olty. Car No. ?> IStj which transported thorn, was lor tbo tluio a Iroe museum, as It afforded all Who passed an opportunity of seeing what but lew bad seen in their lifetime An aggregation ol sixteen eea Tons cannot be seen over* aay. Indeed, there bos boon no suob amphibian arrival in Now York belore. Tha expedition which capturod these monsters was commanded by Captain James Mullet, under tbe dtrec lion of tbe proprietors ol tbo New York Aquarium. On the 31*t ol March tho expoditiou was dosputciiod. It proceeded to Lower Calllornia and the Mexicau coast, on board were Uiioen trained lariat throwers, all Irom Mexico, where this method ol capturing monsters of the l.rnJ anu sea has become a science. When tho sea lions wi ro sighted at a distance by a glass the vosaol w as a uc ho red? A small boat was then tilled witb the lariat throwers, who rowed In the direction ol ll,o'r game Uays were cotisnnied in waiting lor a favorable opportunity lor the capture. Tbe Mexicans slept upon the rocks in tbo habitat of tlio sea monsters. At daylight tboy went about their work. It is then that the amphibian* begin to show them selves. Tbo method ol capture wai as IoIIowb:?* irat the ialso was thrown over tbe head of tho soa lion ua it tt is basking oh the rocks, l'beu tho Hipper was seized by a second rope, aud tbe mouster became bolp less under a third lliug which held Ins ta 1 In con lino ment While thus helpless a cago was placed over tho lion aud uiter being released irom tho ropes tbo cage auu'captive were pushed overboard and towed to the vessel. Filteen men were required to capture uacb sea lion Lives have been lost iu the attempt to make these monsters of tho deep capt.ves. ln ltiis oxpedl. tion everything was eafe aud successful. Several weeks were consumed in catherlng this collection. Captain Minlet 18 nrolKibly only nun in tlio world wbo iihi mado a speciality ol their capture. W hen these na tives of tbo l'acilie coast were cuptured they wore transported to Sau Francisco and Irom thence here. Amoiig them is a lemsle and cub, tbe latter bomg tho ttrst si"*ciUKMi of the kind ever seen in captivity. In tbeir transportation they wore led on lresh Ush, and water was poured over them at frequent intervals. Two ol the croatures are lor the Brighton Aquarium, in Eng land two lor the Pans Acclimatisation Society, two lor Amsterdam. Hollaud, and tbo remainder will remain In New York, at the Aquarium, or be sent to the Seaside Aquarium, at Coney Island. LlEAL ESTATE. The following sales ocourred on the Exchange yes terday :?

Having seen numerous complaints about steamboat racing I would say, for the lolormatlon ol persons making tbo complaints, that If they wish to have it stopped they should complain to the Inspector Gen eral of Sieam Vessels at Washington.

To thk Editor or tuk Hkrald:? 1 wish to Mil attention to the Increasing nuisance of tbe crlos of the Ice hucksters. Throughout the day th?y pas* in pairs through our street*, standing soma time belore euh house, and give vont at the top of their voice to unearthly yells to attract attention to their wares. Now, certainly, this Is not right. If It annoys us that are in health what misery It must cause iho sick, and is made particularly Olsa^reeublt* now that the bouses are open ! There la no dou? that every huckster is entitled to tho fame privileges as tlio icc pedier, and It they should all adopt the samo horrible mode or proclamation it would be considered an outrageous nulsanoe. and than, perhaps, the au thorities would tako some action in tlic matter. KIF PY-SIXTH STREET. DOGS IN Yni KVILI.E. To tuk Editor or Tin Hkrald:? Tbe slums of Constantinople contain fewer dogs than tbe streets ol Yorkvllle. If the Mayor will not enlorce the law what can we do about it f Can the cltlzcn bo puuished for executing it sud the dog too? Vagrant curs are prowling about tbe streets lu every direction. They overturn our garbage boxes and possess themselves of our areas. A few days slnco a canine tramp took possession of our vestibule, with the door mat for a bed. Not wishing to dispute wun him the family were compell-d to use tbe lower door for exit and entrunce.

To TDK Editor or tiib Hkkild:? I have noticed Bevsrsl letters in relerenco to the course pursued by sotne ot thu sealers and Inspectors of weights and measures in the discharge of their so culled duties, and calling tbo attention ol tho trade generally to tbo extortions practised on thorn. As 1 have been a victim of one ol tbeso sinecurisu I would like to raise my voice against tne ovor charges of otio or them and give the public an incident tbat was brought under my notice some time ago, In which ouo John W. Kobinson and bis clerk, Mr. Charles 11. Travers, figured as the principal character. A man, styling himself a sesler ol woights and measures, called at a gentleman's place of business up town and asKed to see bis scales. Not knowing the man the gentleman refused until he made some In quiries as to his authority. I'pou Inquiring be louud tbat Mr. John W. ltobinsou was the legal scaler in his district, and accordingly notified him to call and perform the service. In a short time Mr. Charles 11. Travers called, attylDg that he was sent by Mr. liobiusou to seal Hie scales. Alter locking >it them he made out his bill, amounting to $4 50. Tho cttutluuiuu told him tbat the charges were exorbitant, and t hat he would pay tliem under protest. Tho sealor told hiui he could do as lie cliose, hut if he did not pay he would make him pay more. The mercnant said ns would inake an issue ol it, us he did not wish to bo swindled. To this lis got the answer that as tbe eeelor wns appointed by |m>i<IiobI Inlliienov? giving the natnos ol several prominent politicians In the district?bn could not hurt him much. T'pon polng to the office ol Mr. Kobinson the mercb .ut was informed that Mr. Travers bad no right to seal tbo scales or collect any fees, lu tbe lace of ibis state ment was tbo lact that when Mr. Robinson wits notified to call at tho store, he sent tbe man t''ravers, who signed Mr. Robinson's name and collected the money. Either ot two tilings is cortain, Mr. Kobinson must have sent Mr. Travers. or tbo lattor roost have com mitted lorgery in signing the former's name. A VICTIM. ANSWERS. TBE COAL QUESTION. To ths Editor or tub Hmuld:? Allow me to reply to "Coal Merchant" To have fair weight lor coal, could not sotno grocers, say one In oneb ward, have scAlns on their sidewalks or on tho street near tbo gutter, where buyers ol coal could have the cart weighed lull of tbe black diamonds and rewetghed alter It is empty by paying a err tutu lee for his troublo to tbe grocor? lu that way no cheating could be done. COAU THU THOMPSON STREET MODEL YOUNO Ml.N. To thk Editor or tuk Hsrald:? In answer to tbe communication sent to the Hsrald dated June 16 and styled '?Thompson Street Rowdies," I would respectfully say tbat everything said Is a false hood.

Tbey mind their own business aud do not nioltst any one. They do not want to lo?e their reputation as an order!j sot of young men. THE INJURED PARriEU AUCTION EKBs' TEES. To ths Editor or tub IIbbald:? An oM auctioneer desires to laqutruof Mayor Ely under what authority of law be charges auctioneers a fee of $6 for a license upon the Hung of their bends. It has been tbe custom (but that is not law) lor pre vious mayors to charge a lee ot $;i, but no law exists for it, and under Mayor Wick ham's Orel term U was aboii?ned as illegal und unjustifiable. Now in those reform times It is re-ostsblishod, a larger tee charged ana a Meonse refused nnlese paid, although tbe bond preeentod lor approval cannot be rejected. Our worthy Mayor sboola look into tbls mutter, and. as no law ox lets lor the charges made, should not oetnsnd It- The sub asked Is snail, Mil the principle la larye. AlUTiUh EKii. TIIE COURTS. Attempt to Mandamus a Roman Catholic Benevolent Society. MABEL LEONARD'S ESCAPE. "Warrants of Arrest Against Her Mother and Stepfather. In Supreme Court, Chambers, yesterday, Judge Donohue made an order directing tbe officers of the Young Men's 8t. James Kotnan Catholic Abstinence and Benevolent Society to sbow cause beioro tbe Court, on tbe 20th insl., wby a peremptory writ or mandamus should not Issue com|>elllcg tbom to rein state Francis McOratb ss a member ol tbe noddy in good standing. Tbo application was made by Mr. Maubew 1'. Hreon on tbe petition of McGratb, In which be alleges that he was a member in good standing in tbe society, and, becoming siclc through labir. auplled lo tbe society for the weekiy allownnce due blsi urder Its rules. This was refused, and be then brought suit lioioro J udge Clancy, in the Secoud District Court, to recover live week*' allowance. For this act the so ciety tried and oxpollcd him undor one of its bylaws making expulsion Irom membership the penalty lor appealing 10 any other tribunal from a declNion ol tbo society. It is olaitned hy Mr. Breon. ou behall of tils client, that this bylaw is Itsell Illegal and void, and tnat any expulsion ol a member by virtue thereof la also Illegal and void. A QUESTION OF LAW. A question Involving a point of law was argued be foro Judge Donohue, who gave bis decision yesterday. It would seem that in 1868 Samuel 8blifer mortgaged certslu premises to a Mr. Hoffman, who conveyod tbem to Mrs. Anna King, who, in 1H7;S. conveyed tbein to Norman k Ji-va. Tlie latter, In IK74, agreed with Hodman, unknown to Shi Iff r, to extend the time for payment of tl.o mortgage several months. When lloftman brought foreclosure suit Shiffcr niono delebded, and Hit question urone whether the extension relyised him Irom .ill liability tor suy dodclcncy. Tbe ouly point to be decided was wb'-tlier tbo ugreemeni between Borinan -V Jova and Molluian was void, snd, II so, whether *bil1sr was sull responsible (or dellcleMcies; lor, il valid, under w it soiiled priuoiplos Sniffer was released, ho being in tbo position of a surety, alter no had parlod with the proi? orty, and uot ol a principal. Judge Douoliue in giving decision holds that the agreement was valid; the plaintiff having received its Iruits in tne way ol Interest cannot dispute It, and Sin lier is not responsible lor any delioieodos, though .Mrs. King is, as she put in no answer. I'ho judgmout of loreciosure granted does not alloct Shi (for. MABEL LEONARD. The tact ol the dlsappoarancs of Utile Mabel Leon ard Irom tbe home of her teaiporury guardiaus, Clara Morris and her husband, at Kiverdalo, in Westchester county, has already appeared In tbo IIekalu. Yester day there was submitted to Judge Duuonue, In Su preme Court, Chambers, an affidavit made by Fred erick Lumberg, an officer ol tbe Society for the Pre vention ol Cruelty to Children, In which, after reciting tbe various proceedings hud by the Court in relation to the little actress, he alleges that lie bud on the previous day a conversation with tbe child's moibor and stepfather, both ol whom admitted that tbey knew where the girl was; thul she was out ol tho State; that when sbe ran away Irom Klverduie they rocetvod a telegrum from her siuting tbut she was ut tho Forty secoud street depot and asking them to go there lor her; that ibey intended to got her engagements, nud ner stepfather intended to travel with her. L'puu this affidavit it was alleged that the mother and steplathor had enticed the child away froic her guardiau, In wnoso custody the court had placed her; that In this act tbey had beou guilty of contempt ol the Court's order, und an order should issue lortliwlth lor their arrest. The Court granted this application and issued* warrants for tbe arrest of tbe mother and stepfather. MEliOUliY KNOCKED DOWN. The old and oltou offorod and as olten withdrawn scboolsbip Mercury was yesterday knocked dowu.

The suit was commenced in the Superior Court by Julius Llppmsn, as attorney lor the plumtiir, and alter beiug on me calendar for about a year was dismissed witu $142 "2 costs ugulnst the guardian. Recently a motion was made for an attachment against tbe guardian to compel him to pay ibese costs or surrender his body as collateral to tbo keeper of Ludlow Street J All. The motion lor an attachment was resisted on the part of tho guardian, lie mukiug an utlidavit that when the ac cident occurred several lawyers solicited the privilege of briugiug tho suit; that Lipp man's oiler in tins respect w.is accepted, and ou Ills assurance that tbe guardianship wus merely I or ma I, he (Klein) consented to set und gave a bond in that lie believes tbo plaintiff to have bud a good caiine ol uction und that the dismissal ol tbe compluiiit wus dilo lo the negligeuco ol I.lppman; thul, though he was worth $i>0 ut the tiuie the suit was com menced. he is not worth anything now, and II he is attached lor the nou-paytneut of tnese costs lie will bo pumsbed lor ool doing wtial be is wholly unable lo do. Tlioso allegations ol Klein were controverted by tbo oilier side, and yesterday Judge hull lord rendered a decision, granting the allachnienl, unless Klein pays the amuttiit ol taxed costs iii tho oase, and also $lu costs of tho motion within twenty days.

Sne lelt a will, cxocuted on the 5th of June and duly witnessed, in wluoli the property was lelt to the three children as follows:?One-third to her daughter, Jennie Scott, during bar life ; at ner death the same to go to St. Slopbcn's Home lor Children, in East Twenty-eighth street, New York. Ouo-third to her daughter, Mary Denmon, during her life; at her death to go to St. Vincent's Home lor Boys, at No. 10 Flue street, New York, and No. 7 l'oplar street, Brooklyn.

In this case it is dlrocted that tbo entiro estate shall eventually bo so disposed ot. MARRIAGE FOR SIX. A neatly drcssod Italian stopped briskly before the desk of Justice Murray, at the Tombs 1'olioe Court, yesterday, end in broken Euglish, coupled with much bowing, asked to bo united in matrimony to a bashful young woman by his side.

"What!" exclaimed the magistrate, "more of 111 Well, bring them along now ihiit my hand is iu." Again the ceremony was performed and once more a satisfied couplo led the oourt room with a high appre ciation ol justice as a money saver. "I guew we will havo no more of tboin to-day," mused the Judge, calling up a lew simple drunks lor disposition. "Anoilior couple want to be married," called outSer geunt Woodruff, haiidiug in a modest country youth and a coy maiden, whoso lace was scarlot red. The Justice loaned buck iu bis cbalr and appeared mystified. Then he gazed long sad earnestly al tho calendar on his desk, alter winch he was heard to ro mark, sotJn vo<:r. "1 see nothing extraordinary in tho <iay to produce such an epidomio. Hut It's all right," he remarked alund; "bring theiu ail in, sergeant, and we * ill mark the date as an epoch of matrimony In the Tombs I'oilce Court." The new couple wore named Carl Eugene Houeison and Maria Borgcnhardt. Up to tbe adjournment of oouri the imiico were busily cnguged in looking for other couples anxious to boubited in wcdlock.
