This is in the tame vicinitv.that
the breaks occurred in 1872 and
1371, and overflows and threatens
the same country.
The water from this break es
capes directly into Lake Bolivar
aud through to Deer Creek. The
harm from this immediate break
is limited to plantations north of
Williams' Bayou, between Lake
Bolivar and tho river; but, as iu
the two said years, the protection
of tho northern portion of the
county agniiist water of the break,
depends upon the levco on Doer
Creek and Williams' Bavou. And
last night this unexpectedly save
way in front of tho Evans place ;
tho same place it broke in 1874.
Tlio effect of this break will be
very disastrous, unless there bo a
speedy and considerable decliue in
the river. Much of tho country on
Black Bayou between hero aud the
Deer Creek Ridge will go under.
Tho break at Buck Kidge, from
what wo have heard of it, must
have been tho result of careless
ness onthe part of persons living'
in that vicinity. Tho attention oi
tho loveo otUehils was directed to
tho levees at Utopia, Shady Side
and Gen. Clark's front ; the real
points of danger. No ilUawtcr was
apprehended at Buck Uidgc.

Through your papor wo would
ask to inform the public that tho
labor of orguutziiiir and rehearsing
an Opera combination, has success
fully progressed and that tho
crowning triumph of tbe endeavor
will culminate on tho evenings of
tho 9th, 10th and 11th of May,
when will bo presented tho beauti
ful Opera Martha, by Floton, un
der the management of l'rof .Talou.
This announcement of itself in a
community whoro thcro has novel
been an Opera is sufficient guaran
tee that tho last sent for sale will
be disposed of; but when it is sta
ted that this is strictly an Amateur
organization composed ot the best
musical tale'nt of Grccuvillo and
Vicksbnrg, beyond doubt the
house will bo full to overflowing.
Wo commend the elevor disposi
tion of our Vltksburg friends who
will vir.it us to lend their aid. The
proceeds of the entertainment will
be devoted to a laudable object.
