According to the reports ol Generals
Humphreys nnd Abbott, the rect Mention
of the river banks would cost Silom.ono,
1'nls would place the required breut
work between the planters and Hie Hoods.
ii v a-iiington correspondent of the
New York;-mlU says of Gen. J Itini
phrey a estimate:
"This is a considerable sum ol money;
but southern men assert that the govern
ment would recover It lu a lew years in
the increased value ot government lands

oiner iiaiiu, that It would establish on n

mm oi conon, sugar and ru e, and thus
add to the general wealth of tht.
country. They tay lh.it tho states
aiong inn river banks can not do
the work; that the region has
outgrown the old patchwork system;
mm ii is useless to uiaKc small approina
lions to repair crevasses: that whatever
Is now done should be under the control
ol eminent government engineers, such
as t.on. Humphreys, and should be done
by the Federal Government, and on sei
eiitllleally correct principles. hen eon
gress metis, southern men will
strongly urge the advUablllty of such a
great and comprehensive Improvement,
and the nrgtnnents lor it abovo Mated
have already been presented to the prcsl
dent, who Is understood to take the
ground that while ho Is totally and earn
etly opposed io inch Internal Improve,

Is made up by giving every member and
senator a .slice, he would lavor somcgreat

Is represented to be. lie has not com
mitted hlmsell to this plan, but it is be
lleveu from what ho has salt! that while
he would veto one ol tho old-fashioned
river and harbor steals, bo would consider
favorably a needed improvement like the
one in question." .
In referring to this national work (lor It
a national work), many northern journals
characterize it as "raid on the treasury,"
etc., while they consider the Improve
ment el the miserable little Fox river, in
Wisconsin, on which have been squander
ed, a very la idablo enterprise. I: is n
plain proposition, however, that it Is es
sential to the pro-pi rity ol ths people on
the upper Mississippi to have a pennant lit
live-loot stage ot water to St. Loins,
to take their w in at to market, It
is equally important that the people ol
the lower valley, who furnish millions
ot trade to the country at large, should
beseeurulin the possession of their
lands from the ovet whelming floods that
they may continue to lie factors ol the
general pro ?pcriry.
A-long as the Mis-iippi river Is
t ailed a national highway it is the duty
of the general government to see that it
i kept sii'li, and .1 part ol that duty is,
loicaiiv, to keep the river within banks
and privciit the vast destruction of
valuable property which occurs
fr..n time to time through crevasses. To
leave sii. h work to individuals or to
counties, through which medium it can
not be properly or tilet lively done, is a
palpaple Injustice. It is an amuslmrftr
rument of the opponent of 'he levees
that the river need no sued work, he

water. iho--e oentlemen would not
probably care to ow n land in the vicinity

lor his home In Galena, Illinois, necom
panicd by "Mrs. Wasbiinn nnd his (laugh
ters. -nr. asinuni was very
much engaged while in New Vork,
but before his departure held a
short conversation with a representative
of tho IlW','lnring which ho spoke very
freely of the present state of aflalrs In the
French Republic. if the recent manifes
to of .Marshal MacMahon he said: "Jt
must haye Intensified the feeling through
out France, nnd, taken together with the
imprisonment of Gainbetta, I think it
will add greatly to tho excite
ment which was prevalent
at the time I left. The position that I
occupied so long toward the French
government, where my relations have
always been very friendly under all ol
the live forms ol government which ex
Seted (lining theeight years of my resi
dence in France, disinclines, me to mukt
any -pcelal comments upon the political
contest now so unhappily raging in that
country." As to the result ol the im
pending election, Mr. Washbtirne e;thl:
"It is Impossible lor mu to give any
Judgment ol my own, but hi the last con
vcrsutlon 1 bad with M. Theirs, that
ureal statesman, who knew Franco bet
ter than any man living, assured me that
the Republicans, Instead ol electing the
Mi former deputies, would elect the
whole too. In a very recent eonvei-s.i.
Hon which I had with Gamhettii
he expressed the same opinion
flu the other hand, the govern'
nicnt parly expressed the hope ol sue
cess, or, at nny rate, they prolt sed tu
believe that they would reduce lhe );,..
publican strength so much that the Mod.
erate Fell would hold the balaueeof pow
er, which would curb any Kepublie-m
majority that might be elected." In aM.
swer to lhc question, "what would be the
elleet of an overwhelming defeat ol the
Republicans orof the Government partvv'
Mr. Washbiirne said: "No onn can lore.
leu. i nave uvea lonar enough in

Is extremely uu -ale to venture any pre
diction ato fulii'c political events.'' As
tolheellectol Ihccimlinnatioii by lhe
higher court ol the sentence on Gainbet

ply, adding, "Lei us hope licit the etlect
will not bo What many people In France
will see cause to fear.'' Mr. Washburim
Is of opinion that M. Jules Grevy will
assumo the lead of the Republican party,
and ho describes him as an able and hon
est man and an original and sincere Re
publican n man in whom the
country has v.rv Justly great confi
dence." Mr. Waliluirne said It was true
that he had helped dissuade General
Grant from visiting Paris, and he had
done so because the finding against the
government was extremely bitter, and
it was feared that any such demonstra
tion as General Grant's visit would have
given rise to. might be made the excuse
for such an outbreak as is feared to be
inevitable sooner or later. In his opin
ion, the clanger of i'ic present crisis has
not been commonly exaggerated; the
crisis reallv exists, and it will not end
without a very serious settlement. The
ex-minister describe! the general condi
tion of France as prosperous in the ex
treme. The crops this year are unusually
abundant. This Is especially true of the
vine crops, which give promise ot a sup
ply ol wine equal to that of LW. The
working classes, too. are generally well
oil", commerce tlouri-hes. and ''the only
cause ol universal dread is the black pol
itical shadow which da kens the other
wise cloudless horizon of the most beau
tiful of European lands."
