SA'IT I.DAY, JILV 31. 197. THE LKTKE PETITION. . Tbo Times publishes toduy a pcLi liuii which liaa been utiuioronaly algm-il by citieus of iiollvar county. (bo signatures lucludlui; matiy uamea of mokt substautlal and conservative clli.cuf, protesting ifftf nut llio cwimb lishuietit of the proposed shorl line ol levee from llui(iiij,'tou to a poiui near (M'tiMs As shown by lie peli tiou, iho new lino of levo-o would throw out a larjie and valuable tract of laud, which would bo rendered practically valueless by the operation, ami would work a great hardship up ou the owners thus exposed to the rull force of ilie Hoods. Mr. Scott, u ibo luterest of the properly owuura outside ot the proposed line, has pre eutetl their cause bete.ro the levee board with his accustomed ability, urging, among other strong argu ments, against the shortened liuc, that it would establish a dau;erous prece dent and, if carried to a logical con clusion, would tiually result in the es tablishment, of a line of Uvee as near ly straight as possible, which would abandon to Hoods almost all the ri parian properly in the district the portlou w hich lias hitherto been the most valuable, and has contributed most to tbe establishment and main teuauce of the levee system It appears'to have been au aecepltd rule, in levee building, that no portion of the disliiot should be left unpro tected unless it was absolutely uece sary, ou accouut of a caving bauk. It is true that there esists a notable ex ception in this county, iu which a tract embracing several thousand Acres was Ihrowu out without the j jjaynient of damages, because of the leugtu of levee required to include it ; but the teudeucy, with the precedent ouce establi-hcd, would be to the gradual abandonment of the riparian lauds to overllow and the iiual pro tection of the central and eastern por tions of the district at their expense. It has been suggested that, should the government assume control of tbe lerees, this would '.e its policy, lu that eveut, a line of levees sufficiently high aud strong to restrain tbe whole volume of water aud ruu tar enough back to leave out all tbe bends aud augles, would doubtless have the of fect of annually drowuiug all the country along the river deeper lhau ever did pHrmrnet souud. The case admits of strong argument, pro and cou, and it is likely that the petition ing property holders, being represent ed by the ablest cdunsel iu the coun try, will at least receive heavy dam ages should the shorter line of levee be decided upon. ' Mrs. Leare, the meteoric and uu quelcbable Mary Kllen, is to be queeu of the harvest festival in Kauiaa this fall. She will reign for a week aud wear a $20,000 crown. With all her faults, she is but yet a woman ; and her heart will throb aa high with pride and joy as she vexes the slum ber ot her spouse with the commaud to "wake and call her early" aa it will when she stands up to take the oath of oflke as governor of Kansas. Crauky Kausas aud its Queen do no particular harm iu the scheme of civi lization aud they certainly contribute in uo small degree to the nation's gayety. AUIIT1MT8 arTROVKB. Secretary Alger has approved the revlaed allotments made by the Kiver Commission, which now stand aa fol lows: " Dredges aud dredging, 768,:WO; secretary's office, commission and ur. veyi. gauges, etc, 106,710 ; leveea, 1,671,200 ; bauk revetmeut at Ulle'a beud, $125,000; caro and preserva tion of plant lu tirst and second dis trict, $40,000; third district $10,000; fourth district, iJtJO.OOO; low boat for third district, $35,000; preservation of work at llopefield beud, $20,000: reserve lor emergencies, $110,123; total, -.',933,333.' The sum of $1,674,- 200, alloted for levees, la obtained by dimmishlug Iho sum of $2,037,000 aa originally alloted, by the auiouut cf $363,300, now transferred to dredges and dredging. Work uudor the ro vised allotments will now be com menced aa kooo at practicable. Evou after the merciless pruuiug process to which tb allotmut baa beeu subject ed, there, is cause for ecugratulatiou that all doubt aud uucertaiuty is at an eud, and that work can now pro ceed with n hat is lelt ua. Every week is precious to tbe district from Ibis time until the winter raina begiii. It it reasonable to suppose that Ilia usu al dry siasou will last uutil the great er part of the work uecestary la dour, and the breaks aud weak places m the levees of the district pu. in ordor to withstand the next rite. Taking the almost unprecedented flood into consideration, it if remarkable that the leveca withstood it as thoy did, and that the whole Hue la Dot a wreck, ius'ead of requiring strengthening and the repair of the breaks, which, j while bail enough, are uot as uumer i ous or extensive as might have beeu 1 expected. j The sum alloted to thie dlatrle , eveu after its curtailment, it aulHcieut I to place our lovees iu even better i shape than prior to tbe flood ef'97; I and it is scarcely probable tbat tuch j a high water' as that of this year will j occur again-ucxt sprlug. At all events, j we have time to do everything possi ble, with the meaus at our commaud, to meet any emergency that may be presented. DKiTB OF MRS. GEORGE. Mrs. J. Z. George, wife of United slates Seuator Geoige, died ou Thurs. day moruiug, July 29, at her borne near Carrolltou. Seuator aud Mrs. George celebrated their golden wed ding only a few weeks ago, aud the health of tbe venerable senior seuator is so feeble it is thought their aepara. tion will iiot be. long. , The sympathy of tbe whole Stato is extended to Sen ator Geofge in his deep alHictiou. Tbe greedy baud or John Bull ap pears under the surface of the Japan ese proles'. It appears that the Poly nesian island of Palmyra has just beeu discovered to be British ground, aud a leading English paper recommeuds the seizure of Haw aii by Brilaiu with out further ado. Should this come to pass it is very likely that the late lamented arbitratiou (rea'y aud ail the fraternal fondlings aud affectionate reciprocities of tbe past few years will be buried in obliviou. Hie Board of Supervisors of C'lai borne couuty are determined to have good roads; aomei hing every couuty iu the state should have. Tbe Board of Supervisors of that couuty has is aucd the following order to road over seers; "Whereas, Iho crcalcst lax or burden on the citizens of tbe couutv arise from tbe bad conditiou of the dirt roads : and Whereas, Tbe power lo make aud keep good roads is lodgid iu the road overseer; now BE it Ordered, That all overseers do, within the next sixty days, put their roads iu good couditiou, aa per manently good aa may be, so as to withstand tbe coming wiuter. If nec essary eo to do, they must work the roads the full limit of ten days. All orerteers who refuse or neglect to obey this order by tbe September meeting, will be fined not less than $20 and be reported to the Circuit Court."

In the lad'a keeping was eut rusted a pigeon, which was to be lot loose lu the church through a convenient hole at the proper moment. The church was packed, aud the preacher, having stormed bit denouncement, raited his voice and cried : 'And the holy ghott descended iu tho form of a dove,' but uo dove appeared. He repeated hi seuteuce. Still uo dove. At tbe third outcry a black fare appeared at the bole iu the roof and the query came : i ausou, a cat (loue gone au' eat dc Uoly Ghost; but I gut de cat, BOUT a R riHim I.KTER rRTlTIO. To tbe Board of Miialppl Levee Commissioners : We, tho undersigned cltiz m and lax payers of Uollvar county are ori- ously alarmed nt the possibility of Irreparable Injury lo ntir properties anil homes by the proposed adoption of tbe abort line of levee, as It is geu- orally called, from Mound Landing lo a point at or uear OIl'ulN. We grant that the lino mentioned would ifreatly shorten iho levees of tbe Districts, but It would abandon to future floods anmelblug like (1400 aerea of laud, embracing 35 valuable plantations, tho aygregale worth of which Is uot less than four hundred thousand dollars. Thin property now produce about bales ol cjtlon annually, the lax ou which, supple mented by lh ad valorem aud acreage tax add, and if protected will continue to add, a haudsomo sum to the revc uuee of the District. If there was some imperative tiececsily, compelling the Board to adopt thn now lino of policy, a radical depart uro from all pasi traditions aud precoduiils, we would accept the inevitable, uot with out a feeling of deep regret, natural uuder the circumstance, but with somo degreo of equanimity, born ol tho aasurauco that our agents, selected for tho purpose of protecting tbe Delta had uot lightly abandoned a valuable part of it without such justl- hcatiou aa would salisfy tbo minds and consciences of all gocd men. Hut such it not I he case. It is con ceded by vour chief euuiiiccr. aud kuowu of all men who havo cared lo inform themselves of the situation tbat there Is no necessity, real or im aginary, for the heroic irea'ineut un der discussiou U.i tho contrary, the modihod lino of leveo last projected, which would all'ord protection to u la:ge part of the threaieued territory, can be established without difficulty aud wilh perfect safety lo (he District. We respectfully submit iu IbU con nectiou the following proposition, 6o obvious as to be almost, if not quite axiomatic: That one part of ihe Levoo Districi has the tamo right, morally aud legal ly, to protection as every other part of the District ; That no part of tbe territory now protected by the levoe system should be abandoned so long as it can bo re tained without endangering I be safety of the District because of undue prox imity lo caving banks, or other itui uent danger. Aud tiually, tbat no pari of tbe Dis trict should over be abi.ndouc.l lo t lie river, simply for the purpose of short euiug the line of levee with a view of lessening the expense of building aud ln'iutaiuing a longer Hue. The leveo system was Intended orig inally, aud is now inlcuded, to protect, as far as possible, within tbe bounds of safety, tbo riparian bind owners, aud we venture lo warn the Board that if t L)ie fundamental idea is ig uored, aud Ihe antipodal one of rat ting off the bends is adopted, It is ihe begiuniug of the cud of levee senti ment with a large and Influential clus9 of Delta people. BeMdes, Ihe new policy will return to plague first one part of tho levee community aud then another, aud tiually, as the couutry back from ihe river front becomes thickly populated, the people there will appeal to this aud similar t:aes a precedculs, aud their permaneut line of leves will be established somewhere, perhaps, along Eg pt Kidge and on down the beautiful peer Creek coun try, proteeiiug all east of this sale, short and economical lino, but leaving Ibis west of It, as it Is uow proposed to leave ua. The illustration, perhaps, h carried to the extreme, but it serves to show tho danger and injustice underlying tbe drastic treatment prescribed for Ihe levee system of lower Bolivar. ' Iu conclusion, we earnestly protest against the adoption of the short line as uujust, uuwUe aud unnecessary, and therefore a wanton abandonment of a valuable ptrt of tbe L 'Vee District, de stroying our property and homes and involving ua ami our fellow cmz 'iis, where we are not personally interest- ed, In financial ruin. Kely lug, as we had a ritfbt lo do. on your Honorable Board lo use every effort for the protection of the entire District, we have spent large sums of money iu acquiring property and in making valuable improvements there on, ill the threaieued lerritorv. ami we ttill rely ou jour wisdom and seuse of justice to protect it as long at such ptotcctlou can safely be extended V .
