KOBERT L. TAYLOR, of Washington.

w". L. CLAPP.
Wa obierve that frequent reference
if made j oat now to the prediction ut
tered by the flnt Napoleon, that Eu
rope would become Cossack or repub
lican. Today strides are making to
ward! both one and the other. Rev
erence for monarchy la dying cut.
England 1b ripidly outgrowing respect
for monarcbs who "can do no wrong,"
and conreqnen'ly cm accomplish no
right. Fiance baa cleared ber mon
arcbe away and is now bundling her
princes alter them. Bpaniatde revolt
and cry out f r a republic. Italy li
const an t'y liberating. llelgiutn
catchra repub'ican influences from its
neighbor, France. Holland la slow,
bat gives signs cf discovering the ose
lessnesi of kings. Denmark i appa
rently on the eve cf revolution against
lis absurd King. Acntria has her at
tention engaged in annexation, but its
partner, Hucgary, gives signs of in
creasing libeia'iam. Germany is
still onder the influence of
the unifka'ion of the empire,
and will di-turb neither Hisuoirek
nor "Wilhelm, but when they are gone
the preset t progress of socialism there
gives signs of certain change; the
band ot power there has bscometoo
heavy. Bulgaria would be happy if
it could steer clerr of monarcbs ind
prinefs. Russians cling to "the right
divine" to govern wrong, and the
Cr-ar is sacred in their eyes, and Itat
siais the world's center f mlachlef,
but the existence of nihilism bIiows
what avo'cano is burning bsneath
the iurface. Eustla is hastening
toward a ri petition of the horrors of
tbe French revolution a century ago.
We bave received a report of tbe
president of the Yasoo Levee Board,
Col. T. W. Whits, which presants
various facta cf much Interest. From
its page wa extract the following:
The levees bad not barn cons dered
ufflolsnt to withstand a flood like that
of 1882, bat this year the ifss wj
from four ti seventeeu inches higher,
yet surprising success a'.tendad the
efforts made to protect the levee, the
expense was $50,COO. The president
recommends the construction of a
telephone line along the levee, so aa
to secure rapid intelligence of breake,
etc., in future floods. The light top
ping work done, though generally
with narrow base and steep slopes,
resisted the water remarkably well,
but trouble arose in places from
aloughingot the rear t lope. Tendency
to slough was more maiked where
light basking of new toil wai
placed on the rear elope . of
the old levees, the efloct of want
of cohesion between the new
and old work, the new material slid
ing off, involving also existing work.
Some sections, completed Just before
high water, stood perfectly well, al
though fresh soil had been pat on the
rear slope; the quantity of new over
old work proved sufficient for stall
ity. Where a thin prism of new ma
terial Is to be applied, it is best to
place it on the river side. If there is
a standard slope the water will sus
tain it in position. At the junction'
of old and new levees leaks were pre
valent, and greater precaution is re
quired in making such junctions than
the usual one ol extending the muck
ditch up the slope of the old work.
The new levee is principally composed
of "buckshot" material, not having
been subjected to water pressure be
fore the portions built with wheel
barrows ware porous, tbe water pars
ing quits freely through, and a libef at
" help by tacks wai applied. Projecting
old levees at the lower junction with
new work, retarding the water fliw,
made tbe water in the pocket between
the old and the new line rise above
the normal flood plane, and came near
going over tbe levee. A crevasse five
miles below Friars Point came from a
negro cutting the levee from malice
toward the negro oscnpant of the land
behind it. Ia previous instances the
bed cf the Lou's vil e, New Orleans
and Texas railroal proved of sorvlce
in protecting from flioda. The per
nicious Influence of the St. Francis is
seen in the sudden larite increase of
the flood elevation j iet belore its cul
mination. The avowed intention of
the Mississippi commission to clote
up the outlet at the bead ot the 8U
Francis, and to levee the front of that
basin, is a work much do:irjd. Presi
dent Whits adds: "I cannot escape
tbe conviction that a great misfortune
to the riparian iiitaresis of the Misils
sippl Valley has resulted from ths di
vided counsels among our Congrea
aional Repressntativfs as to ths cor
rect neis of the corom'sslon's policy in
other matters pertaining to the river
improvement tbe effect of which is to
destroy any present hope of this con
summation, and render its ultimate ac-
comp'Uhment a matter ot doubt
The first effect ot such leveeing
would probably be to eleva'e
the flood piano at Memphis and in the
npper part of our district, but ma'e
rially relieve ni from Austin down. It
would alsoraduce the flood plane to a
condition of regularity which would
enable ui to realily tei how to resist
the water effectually, and I am con
vinced would ultimately ma'erially
lower all flood elevations on our
front" Capt Eads asserts that the
confinement of flood waters between
the levees will lower the elevation.
The Yasoo basin presents similar con
ditions to those of the Bt Francis, and
catting off the overflow on our front
into tbe Yasoo river baa greatly ameli
orated the conditions of the Tensas
basin below; similar benefit may be
looked for by a similar treatment of
the St Francis. Toe present grade cf
three feet over the 1882 water ia none
too high, and fonr feet above Tenter's
Landing. An upward tendency in all
oar grade lines ia desirable. Experi
ence teaches ns that our safely lies in
securing a wide margin between for
mer high water marks snd the tops of
oar levees. Too much care cannot be
taken in prepuing the ground before
erecting new work; the rear aipe
water abould bs drained; banquettes
should be plased in tbe rear at bayou
or channel crowing?, and stumps and
logs bs removed. ,
MEBTa). We mentioned two or three days
ago ths tucceseful introduction of
brick as a material, not only for city
bidewalk, but for paving the central
portions of tbe street at llloumington,
III., and its adoption at Decatur and
Jacksonville in the same State. We
flnda's) that the flouruhlng city of
Steubenvllle, O, has had th's pave
ment for twj year past, and Charlis
ton, W. Va.,lifs had it on its prin
cipal street for fourteen years, where
it tits stood ths test of heavy wear.
At Steubenville twelve inches were
dug out below the surf ice, then, our
account states, "they cavored the top
with sand for a time, and now they
bave tbe finest pavement in the world.
Steubenville hs a contract to
pot it down at 83 cents per iquare
yard. This price includes tbe bricks,
the oilier materials and tbe work of
laying. Hslglaa blocki cos1, from
$2 50 o $3 par tquure yard
and asphalt cost about the
same. It can bs taksn up and re
paired without any trouble." In
Charleston white fire brick is pre
ferred, and baa stood tbe test pf four
teen year' woar, it wearj round, and
does not chip at ths edges ai tbe red
bricks do. Tho Bio jmlngton account
declares that well burned red brick is
quite satisfactory, but the white is
probably preferable; both are put
down edgeways. The testa of fif een
years at Bloomington and of fourteen
years st Charles'on, W. Va.; are cer
tainly sufficient to prove that a pave
ment lo cheap, and declared to be o
durable, at well as smooth and com
paratively noicelese, is wotth consid
eration. The New "Orleans 1 Timet
Democrat favors its trial in that cily.
The Board of l.evee Commission
ers for the Ytno Miss. Delta at a
meeting held at Clarksdale, ordered
an is us of f 50,000 debentures A
survey was ordered to ascortnln, what
repairs or new sections to the levees
was required; to repair damages and
build or rebuild levees where necesea
ry, on the hoard's approve1. A prose
cution waurdeHd where a man had
cutaleree. Aeeosssd value of lands
were declared as follows: Lunoia
county 25 lercenr. higher, Quitman
county 10 percent, big her,Tallahatobie
10 per cent, higher, Coahoma county
25 per cent, higher; Leflore county,
and Yasoo county unchanged; Sun
flower 30 por cent, reduc ion, Desoto
county 45 per cent, reduction. For the
purpose of equalising the asieesmenU
of the New Orleans and Texas rail
road with tho aspersed value c f lands in
Tunici county, Itn assessments were
reduced 20 per cent,, and for the same
purpoee in Coahoma county a'so 20
per coot., makli g a total of $300,OCO
for Coahoma and $120,000 for Desoto
county. Two repair forces were or
dered to be set to work, a'so an iaaue
of $100,000 bonds. A committee was
appointed to confer with the Wiisie
sippl levee commissioners, to ascertain
whetber a comprct can be arranged

Great numbers of people bgan com
ing ia early thta morning Irom all
points, and Purdy put on a gala day
appearance. Members of both par
ties formed a procession ol abont 600
and maxthed out seueral miles and
met the candidates coming from Sa
vannah. The speaking was beld in a grove in
tbe yard of tho Hon. John V. Wright,
where some 2000 ladies and gentle
men were oomfortably seated. Bub's
speech today was a splendid effort, and
it was manifest it found lodgement
dep down in the hearts and m nda of
bis bearers. It was ths be Bt speech
that has been made in this canvass,
creating a better impression. A prom
inent and influential lady declared
that if she hsd never been a Democrat
be'o'e, abe would be one af er bearing
our Bob today.
J. W. Porviance Introduced Alf in
henckome style, who proceeded as
usual, bnt rtade a decidedly fine
speech, and h a f lends and Demo
cra s ftlfo spoke in hgh terms of his
able effort, and D.mucrate only re
gretted that hia fine talents were not
engaged in a bit'er ciue.
A etiikintt coincidence was that at
the head of the prnct salon today were
tbe two brothers Eppe, Jim and John,
one a Democrat and the other a Ke
pub'iean, ard the two Dillons, Will
and Frank, Democrat and Republican
I rot hers.

Baltimobe, Md; September 30
Tbe Sun has a long letter writ'en by
Jeflereon Davis from Bean voir, Mis'.,
dsted September 23d, lo Col. J. T.
Scharf, of Baltimore, replying to Gen.
Wm. T. Sherman's so-called repnrt
to the War Department, and which
the Unit d States ordered to be
printed as "Executive Document No.
36, Fo ty-eighth Congrers, Second
Session." Davis says: "A continu
ing sense of tbe great injus ice done
to me and to the people I reprtsented
by the Senate making the malicious
Bss.ult of Gen. Sherman a public doc
ument and giving to his dander the
importance which necessarily attaches
to an executive communicttion to tbe
Senate, which has recently caused
the request for a reply by me
to be pressed ith very grfat
earnestnets, for ths reai-on I Lave
decided to furnish my reply to
you for publics ion." Mr. Davis t'len
pr. cceds at gr.-at length to dispute
and deny the charges brjUiht againit
him by Gen. Shermfin, in which he
dtc'art s he did all in his power to pre
voi.t the war, and did not peek the
Font of Chief Extcutive. Hasiya:
"For all the acts of my puM c life as

sion that it w 11 be swayed from truth
by the malicious fulHel ooils if Gen.
Sherman, even when s'emped as au
'Ex-Doo' by the United Ktates Sen

Mr. Davis objects to i that
made by Gen. Sherman in 1884 be
fore the B air Post G. A. R. that he
(Sheiruan) . bad a Wt er in Divis's

' 1 have in this vindication, not of
myself only but also of the people who

Poet slander of myself, tbe defamation
of the character of Gen. Albert Sidney
Johnson, the jisparagement of tbe
military fame ot Gen. Qian, and tbe
shameful and corrupt charge
