How this immense s5a was changed to a fertile valley was explained by the late Captain J. & tads, whose views have obtained uni- versai acceptance. Captain Eads' ineory was that when the Mis sissippi river rorced its way through a pur of the Ozark mountains, its waters belug highly charged with sed imentary matter, filled this ancient es tuary with alluvial deposits to the height of about three hundred feet above the sea at the upper eud of tho basin. This process went ou coutiu uously until the Delta was formed. me surface oflhe laud thus made has a comparatively regular descent from the upper eud of the basin to the gulf, being at Gaines's Laudiug, midway to the gulf, about 140 feet above tho sea. Through these deposits . the river wiuds its tortuous course in a channel about 1,150 mile long. Expcrincv ami obsorvaiion prove most conrl ii ively that tho ouantitv of soim mailer wiiicn the water of the river i. able to hold iu suspension is etiictly regulated by the velocity of ino curit-iit. lUererore, during the imiuial .rie.s of tills laud formation, whenever the Hood waters escaped ovi r tin- bunk o: tho ciiauiul, the loss ot t in rent In llin water thus escaping caused the sandy or heavier bortioua of tho solid matter held iu suspension in It to settle almost immediately on the submerged bauks, while the argil laceous and lighter portions, which take louger to sottlo, were carried back by the feebler currout to the swamps or lower lauds, ou which they were uopositod ovor a much more ei teusive area. These lighter matters now constitute the blue and other col ored clay strata which are found lu all parts aud at all depths of the basin. The rivei bauks wore thus kept eon stautly higher than tho lauds more distant from the stream, llufore auy levees were built on thorn they were usually ten to fifteen foot higher than the lauds one or two thousand yards distant from the river. The size of the flowing volume of any river constitutes a very important element in dotermiuiug the velocity of its current and as tho loss of volumo over the natural banks has tho effect of producing a more slugglisb current in the main chauuel, a deposition of sediment resulted wherever this loss occurred. In tills manner tho bod of the stream. during each successive food, was built up higher aud hlghor, whllo the water escaping over tho banks built them up also. Thus it came to pass that tho Missis sippi became what a wrilor of tho last ceutury described it a great ditch ou the top of a ridge considerably higher thau the valleys on cither side of it. Nature constructed it in the courso of centuries, loug before white mcu over heard of its existence. When it was discovered by Spauish and French au venturers aud the famo of its fertility was carried to Europe, tho era of set tlomeut began, and with it began also the construction of defences against ovorllow. The first levee was com menced with the founding of Now Orleans iu J718 aud was 6,400 feet long. Iu 1728 thirty miles of leyces were built by planters. That year the levees extended forty-seven miles above and below New Orleans lu 1730 their length was fifty-five miles. These proving insufficient, the Spanish gov ernor, General O'Rclly, ordered more to be constructed under penalty of laud confiscation for disobeulcuce. In 18'r'8 others bad bocn buijt along tho bauks nearly to tho mouth of the Rod river. At that early period, when planters became- impoverished by their outlays for this purpose, parish and county taxes were levied to carry ou the work, aud wheu that resource wai exhausted tho States camo to ths res cue, in 18 10, assisted by a congres sional grant of 26,772,379 acres of pub lic land, tho Stales of Louisiana, Ar kansas, Mississippi and Missouri un dertook the work, and lu 1858, as re ported by tho chief engineer of the United States army, -the river was leveed, with few exceptions, from Cape Girardeur to New Orleans ou both sides with embank me nts, averaging four foet high." The loveu whs not a Spaulsh-Amcrl-ciui invention. It had been used iu Europe successfully to prevcut luiiu Ualioiis. The principle was the same as that employed by the Hollauders, who built great dykes to shut out the encroachments of tho ocean. They hnd been used on tho banks of the lloaug Ho lu ChiuA for ages. The river I'o in Italy has bceu leveed from a remote period. Iteforo A. D. 1300 there wore 68 miles of very ancient construction, from Cremona Iq the mouth of Uio Oglio, and these wore extended durlug succeeding ceuturies ucarly to tho mouth of the main stream. The conditions are the same iu the valleys of the To and the Mississippi. It is hot surprising, therefore, that the Spanish settlers of New Orleans should have adopted tho levee system, or that it should haye been continued by their successors, aud finally by tho general government, Tho only woudcr is that iu a matter of such vital importance to tho nation, the protection of the Mississippi valley from dc-itructive floods should have been left for a long period to individual, local and State enterprise, Instead of being assumed as a national work by tho general government, to be poid for exclusively by appropriations froin the public treasury. , Of the nation's duty in this respect there oau be but one opinion when the subject is fully understood. The Mis sissippi river Is the grand natural com mercinl highway of the United Status. Tho maiu stream, and 41 of its many tributaries, turnish 16,090 miles of navigable water ways, "presented by uature, at no cost to the people, but they arc just as valuable as if artilicial ly built." This river aud its tributa ries drain 1,257,645 mire miles of country between t I'hauy and the Rocky mouulnn ibuling to the felilily of ever, through which they flow. vigable waiers pass throng el 21 States and Terrilork hoir people (.heap traui i potual check on U i lies. These reasons were set forth at length in the resolutions which were adopted iu St. Louis last April by the Mississippi aud Ohio River Pilots' So ciety, aud were re-a!hr.u,d by the Mississippi River Inipruvcuicut and Levee Couveutiou, held at Vieksburg May 1st. The preamble aud resolu tions were as follows : "Whereas, the preseul is the ouly complete system of levees Wc havo ever bad between Cairo and New Orieaus, tbus anording Tor the first time, until the said levees gave way nuder the flood, an opportunity of proving the engineers were correct, aud whereas we observed the greatly Increased cur rent caused by said levees confining the surplus waters to the natural chan nel, thereby clearly showlug that this is the quickest way to get rid of the surplus water, while at the same time tbe friction Is greater on the bottom than on the bauks in flood time, as tbe banks cave very little when they are full, as the water is aiding as a support to save the banks. The national char actcr and uatiouai importance of this problem, as well as the natiou's duty iu relation to it, Is shown in the fact that tbe Mississippi valley and river is tne recepticie and ebauuul to the sea of the entire drainage from the tweutv five States and Territories between the Alleghany aud Rocky mountains.

Resolved, That the free perenulal navigation of our great river, wherever possible to be effected by legislation, should be demanded of the govern ment, and receive its atteution as promptly aud as uestiutodly as harbor improvements ou tho Atlautic, Pacific, Gulf or Lake coasts; that tho receut floods in the lower Mississippi river, which have proven to be beyond the control of the most determined State, municipal, district and county efforts combined, should emphasize ouee more tho great fact, always true, aud hereto fore always overlooked, that the Mis. sissippi river Is the nation s river, or as called by one of tho greatest construc tionists of tboConstitutiou,tbe nation's great iulaud sea, and as such It 'oomes as much within tbe purview of the Constitution as do the harbors of the Atlautic, Pacific, Gulf or Lake coasts."'
