An Inter-Oceanic Ship-Canal, Gone a Maying. BY BESSIE BEECH. BARON DE LESSEPS' SCHEME. An Inter-Oceanic Ship-Canal, and What it Will Accomplish. [From the Chicago News.] WAsniNOTox, February 19. The 'construction or an inter-oceanic ship canal through the Isthmus of Pana ma is daily becoming a subject of creater interest to tho people of America and also to thbsc of other nations: Many'surveys have already been made and not less, than ten dif ferent Arp-uJes prpRoicd.jrhrceqf these at least have been proposed. Thrge ofctfiese at least ;ha vet been pronounced practicable, in deciding upon the practicability ot any route, the following are among the more important considerations: The- 'wa ter suonlv and whence it should bo drawn ;( the difficulties that may ex ist from floods; the construction of a canal with or without locks; the ad vantages which the various routes proposed offer in materials for con struction, and information as to lev els, which will form a basis for spe cial instrumental-cxamination.--.iThe i attention of the snrveying and ex ploring expeditiou sent out by" this country to obtain iniormatiou in re lation to tho proposed canal was par ticularly 'called, to tho above consid erations. The three routes that are looked upon with the greatest favor are cailed respectively the Nicaragua route, the Panama route, and the San Bias route. The former is called the American route, and, if our coun try decides to take steps toward the construction of a canal, will undoubt- edly 'be the ono adopted. The origi nal surveys are made by the United States Government. THE NICARAGUA ROUTE. This is the most, northerly of tho tUree,routes with an eastern terminus at Grey town, and a western at Brito, on the Pacific coast Greytown is distanced from Aspinwall about 225 ;i 'i ,'M. r n.! : liiucs. iuu iciigbu uituia uatuiL is 180 miles. It will, contain seventeen locks, with a lift of ten feet each. The highest point is .107 feetr-'above ,the two oceans. The. costof'tliia'',canal is variously estimated at from $05,- 000,000 to $100,000,000, including the construction of the two harbors at each terminus. Tire length, of ic required for a, vessel to' pass through', this canal will Tie four days and a half.. The width is to be seventy-five feet, at the bottom, and the depth twenty' six feet along'the whole line. The length of the locks will be 4.00 feet. The route of this canal is described by General A., A. Hum phreys, as beginning on the Atlantic side, at or near Greytown; running by canal -to the San Juan .River; thence following its lea bank to the mouth of the San Carlos River, at which point thc navigation of the San Juan 'River begins, and by the aid of three, short1 canals of the ag gregate length o three anil one-half miles, Lake .Nicaragua is reached. The length of the-lake navigation is fifty-six miles. The canal then pro ceeds through tW -valleys, of tlie Rio del Medio and Rio Graiido to thp port oi unto on. the .Facitic coast. irom the point of-entering the lake on the west side ther.e are ninety1 three miles of .uninterrupted 'naviga tion, fifty-sLv 4nilesr of lake naviga tion, and thirty'-seven miles of river navigation, Thfs route, better than any other, utilizes the natural ad vantages .of the country thronjrh which It'p'asses. But there are many strong objections presented in oppo- Snd the difficultyTjhich larg&yeSscls will encounter in p'assing thern and the earthquakes to, which that region, ii subjected, which will. it is' claimed. continually put the locks -out of re pair, and thereby greatly injure fthe carial. Many prominent engineers have, denouncedthis pnfts .imprac-1 ticable, predicting that, should it be carried puit would, after a .year, .of two; be found necessary to abandoj! it as, wholly .impracticable.- THE PANAMA ROUTE. The' Panama, 'route or as it is perhaps botter.sknpwn, the De Le3 seps-joute is called the French Ca nal," hating, beetCadopted 'by'tfa , Par is Congress in-1878. . It is-forty'nye miles in length,, aqd.i:jpslimatea' to cqst 0,000,000.', Thlss Cinques tionably the firfest ancl wran'dest plan in1ti 'conception.' It'is to be built without lock or tunnel. Thtf inten anil.to.aeuendi iiponlftha.two-oceans for tlie supply of water by reducing it to the sea level. It will require for- tv-emht hours Tor ships to make the passage. "The depth of water will be twenty-eight feet, .and the width of the canal 106 feetC At the rate of.tliree miles an hour, it is estima ted that 100 ships may pass out of the canal each flay. This canal can ue DUiir, accortiinK to me eaumaies of tlie projectors, in seven years. BaronrDejLessieps. offers 'assume thp entire responsibility of complet ing it In that jlm'e. ' He is now at f. anaiuu wiiu a corps ui uiiiuccis, engaged -in an examination pfthe different stratifications and the char acter,, texture and hardness of the rock, with a view to estimating1 moro accurately the co3t of tho carial and the obstacles to be overcome. The Baron intends coming to the United States before long' to present to "the American people the result ot his observations after a jiersonal survey. THE SAN BLAS ROUTE. The'tliirtl route, tlie San Bias, is the shortest proposed, being thirty- three miles in length, with a tunnel seven miles long, through a moun tain 1,500 feet in height. The esti mated' cost is $164,000,000, and the time required in.coqstruction about eigin years, lii eucu leimiuus, guuu . i i - . ' i i - .A r 1 natural'harbors are found, which are easily approached by a wide, open sea.--, rue tieptu is to ue 2S leet, ano tho width 125 at the water line, and 80. feet in tho tunnel. Tho roof of the tunnel will be 118 feet above the canal bottom. The greater portion of the material through' which the tunnel passes will lie rock, making .walling, to prevent .the, sides trom caving, unnecessary; THE ADVANTAGES OF A SHIP CANAL. The advantages of a ship canal to the commerce of the world can" not be overestimated. The distance sav ed by navigation in general between the great ports of the world would be about 9,000, miles, which is worth $16 per ton for all freights. Six mil lions of tons will annually pass this highway, for which $3 per ton will be charged, thus saying $lo per ton, or $78,000,000 annually, to the com merce of the world. Tho1 gross, re ceipts of the canal,- on this basis, will be $18,000,000 per annum. The expenses of all kinds arc calculated not to exceed $7,000,000, thus leav- ng $11,000,000 to go to the stock holders. Congress is looking care fully into the matter, a committee of the House being now at work exami ning witnesses and obtaining addi tional-information. In the Senate a resolution, calling for tHe" appoint ment of a committee, to have in view a similar object, is now pending. Columbus Letter. [Special Corr. of the Journal.] COLUMBUS, O., Mar. 2d, 1880. The Kirby Police Bill, which gives the Mayor of Cincinnati the. control of the' police; in that city, seems to ue onooi iiie rnosi. important uius passed, if one is to take newspaper talk' as" any judication of importance. Cincinndti has a Republican Mayor at present but suppose tho ribxt ono should be a Pemocrat', then of course that party can make a might' political machine by- reason of the law. But a large number of the citizens of. the Paris, of America were' crying for a change, and now they haYQ it ' " Senator- Ponds' bill to ,reonjanii5e the reformatory benevolent institu tions 'of tho State came up- last Thursday in the Senate for passage". It wijl. be remembered that the In stitutions named shall be under the supervision and direction of five trustees, which are to be appointed by' the Governor by and with advice from the Senate. It also gives the Governor the power to, remove any trustee nt any time or for any cause he may' see fit. This of course could riot or did not please; the democratic members, ancl a long and lively argument was . made and all sorts of objections made, some of the mem bers made motions'Tor 'a postpone ment of the bill -until1 next July, and oth'crs had amendments to offer, cto. lion. . Peter Ilitohcoekj made, 'an amendment .that no trustee should be removed on account of political sentiments, but the Senate voted it down. Dr., Scott who is the sup posed daddy of a bill in the House tor reorganization, and other Repub licans arc not particularly in love with the Pond bill, giving as ano of their main reasons that 'it gives the Governor too much power. Besides' the House bill which" gives" the State Institutions two 'additional trustees each, is a bill of which Col.

' Thfe Democrats where they had a majority, at the first session and the very first-bill began to reorgan ize, and the mistakes they made, has doubtless induced the Republi cans to move cautiously in this matter, and make as few mistakes as possible, for any se'rious mistakes would have a telling effect in politics Mlii fnll . Tho Local Option petitions still continue to come in every day. and t :will soon become time for the Legislature to pay some attention to the matter, one way or other. VOTING BY ELECTRICITY. One' of the most novel inventions of. tho present "aire of wonders is g quietly worked opto be put Into practical operation in the Legis lative Halls. The Journal corres pondent was one of the privileged few that has been let into the secret. and as the invention i3 no longer a matter of doubt a few notes on the construction and utility of the novel invention may prove Interesting to tho Journal readers. Voting by electricity may at first seem impracticable but the fertile' brain of a successful inventor has solved the problem, and in the near future the solon occupjung his seat in the Legislature, can, by simply pressing on a little ivory knob located conveniently on his desk, vote either 'yes,' or 'no,' on questions called to be voted on. The plans are not yet perfected, but tho "rbailer can get-aideaU of the invention ot the "Voting Machine" by the following discription. Oh each member's desk will be placed two small knobs, not unlike the stops of an organ. On ono tho word "yes is printed, on tho other no." Wires will rnn from each desk to tho Clerk's desk where an apparatus similar in appearance to. a type writer will bo placed. The names of the members aro printed on slips and as their names are called the member simply presses on the knob "yes" or "no" as the case may be. If the member presses on the "yes" knob, his vote will be recorded on the back of his name with the word "yes" printed by electrioity. In this way a per manent record is made of each member's vote and Wie lobbyists who stand around and hear from the roll call, how each man vote3 will beat a loss just who, to tackle, aa tuo clerk alone will know how members vote.
