appnuld the suggestion of the Uapitolian. eta
There are few men connected with the
history of Louisiana, most assuredly not the
one daring the Confedeate struggle who
more greatly endleared tlemselvei to the wi
people than Governor Henry W. Allen.
A man of large heart, self saorificing for ceo
the good of others, of chivalric daring andi
most generous impttlses, Henry W. Allen idle
left behind him a monument more endu- ye.
ring than bras or lofty marble column- of
the undying'gratltude of the people whom fns
he so heroically and unselfishly befriend- "it
ed in the dark hours of Louisiana's histo- Th
ry. To-day Baton Rouge bears testimony p
to his generosity, while the women and an4
children, the widows and orphans of con
federate soldiers yet live to remember and th
praise his deeds of love in ministering to
their wants and neeessities. There are
indeed few in North Louisiana who do not
bear grateful testimony to his worth and
kindness of hert. And there will not be o
wanting the manifestation of how deep h
is their love and gratitude for the war to
Governor of the State, when the demand of
is made. Let the suggestion of the Capi- .
tele hbe carried out and Louisianians se
will be prompt to respond with alacrity to ve
the call upon their love and undying L
s gratitude to the memory of one of her no- l1
a blest and most heroic citizens. n
The Bossier Banner has this to sy on a

nlcent resoarces, and the bet material i
Sinterests of Loutlalna.--True, the objee- m
tionis often rged that all previous efforts e
in that direetion, by State and individual
e aetion, have fled.' While we are not g
willing to eoneede that all the plans and e

bee complete fbilurles, we do assert our

[K O. De'mocrat.
In Judge Francois Xavier Martin's his.
tory of Louisiana, which hI:vin' long
since gone out of print is about t, b e ir
puhlished by Mr. James A. i;r~hiaim, of
thibs city, there occurs the foi!owi ing. very
interesting reference tojettices at aippliedt
to the mouth ot the Mississippi river:
S[xtract from year 1?21.
Pauger having cinpleted the survey
of the passes of the Mississippi returned
and lumade his report to Bienville. lie
foiind the liar a deposit of tinjl, about ;:b0
tiet wide and about twice in iw'gthk. It
appeared to himi it was orca.i :: 'd by
ihe current of the, river and i., ;.x of
the sea, which greatly obstruinc l the
current. caused the riser to overfow. Hio
took notice that the stream, ii'ºI"i very
luudily, left on its shores and is~itnds
heaps of timber covered by annai i layers
of mud. The smaller timber fillip! ir the
interstices in this manner, i.si't.d and
new lands along the shore were.ine'ssant
ly formed, and after a few years canes and
willows began to rise on the crust formed
by several layers. He expressed an opin
ion that with little trouble, by giving a
proper direction to the growirg tinb:her,
dyrkes might be formed along one ot he
channels, and by sinking old ve'si?!, so
as to stop the others, lthe velocity of'the
water might be increased in ithe tfrmcr,
and a very great depth obhtined in time,
an operation which he said was f >rniing
in some parts of the passe;, one- whicbh he
had noticed the preceding year, when he
found on it but ten or eleven feet of water,
and eight months after front thirteen to
fourteen, while a bar had extended to (lie
island of the Balize, which was I 1 feet
in width and double that' i lr u;:th, ýith
an eminence in the muiddffb 'Tbftire which
ships might ride in eighteeni feet of t i'r.
