T ime E xtknokd. —Tlw I Erectors of the State Fair at New Orleans have extended thé time for holding their present exhibition, until, and including Sunday, the 19th inst., owing to the unfavorable weather which has atteuded ihe enterprise for snr many days, preventing thou sands from visiting it, and limiting the number of contributions designed for exhibition. liy this wise movement on the part of the Directors, we have no doubt they will have the satisfaction ol realizing their fondest expectat ions regarding a most brilliant success for their Fair. Such, we earnestly hope, will be the case. M ovements to R evive the D em ocratic P arty .—Meetings have re cently been- held in New Orleans having for their object a reorganiza tion of the Democratic party in this State. At one of these meetings, a committee previously appointed, con sisting of Messrs. R. L. Gibson, J. ( ). Nixon, R. J. Barrow, James Eus tis and Duncan S. Cage submitted a report, which was adopted, nomi nating a "State Central Committee." Iu the list forming this Committee, the names of J O. Fuqua, Esq., of this city, and H. M. Favrot, Esq., of West Baton Rouge, appear. The Central Committed of which George A. Fosdick, Esq , is Chairman, was requested and empowered to fix the time and place for holding a mass meeting of the citizens of New Or leans, opposed to Radicalism. M ore K econstuuchon .—The Re construction Committee of Congrss* have agreed to report a hill for the speedy enforcement of the net of March last and other supplementary acts. The said bill give'* unlimited power to Gen. Grant and enjoins it upon b»m w> remove all officers in the several mili tary departments who faif to execute the said act", arid to appoint other officers in their places ; also, to re. move all civil officers now act' 11» un der the several provisional govern ments, and appoint others, who wili perform their official duties according lo the tenor and spirit of said ;tcls. The bill, moreover, takes from the President all authority to appoint the several military commanders or to re move any such that nriy be ap pointed hereafter, and declares it un lawful for the President, to assert by force of arms the authority of said provisional governments, to oppose or obstruct the execution of the projecttd act or the nets above mentioned ; and any interference by any person to prevent by force the txceuiion of the same, is to be held as a high misiJe meanor, subjecting the guilty party on conviction, to a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars and imprison ment not exceeding two years. Tlie House Judiciary Committee are also about to report the Senate bill defining a quorum of the Supreme Court, with an amendment providing that it shall be necessary for two thirds of the Court to agree before any law of Congress shall be "pronounced un constitutional. <'rop S tatistics of L afourche The Thibodaux Sentinel, of the 4th, has the following : The largest, crop of sugar was m de by Gustave Sabatier on the Vacherie Plantation—830 hogsheads. The largest yield of corn was made on the same plantation—3000 busbeis. The plantation belonging to the heirs of Mrs. Cynthia Pugh, produced the largest yield of lice—225 barrels. Marcelin Bergeron can claim the honor of having been the largest cot ton planter, having made 70 bales. Facts and Figures in Hr-gard to Red River. To the E ijitok of tub B aton B odge G azette and C omet— Sir: — Before giving the "tacts and figures" referred to in my letter of the 25th of October ult., to prove », . I i , , that the greut lakes ubovo and near Shreveport can be made to bold back the surplus waters, and thus restrain thefluods of Bed Biver, I must endeavor to explain the anomalous condition of the river at the time of its floods, which makes it appear impossible that this could be done. I have several times, and at differeut points, watched the river rising to a flood. At the head of Tiger Wand, before the levee wh.s built from Campt.' down to the old river which passes Natchitoches, the water would rise gradually to within say two feet of the top of its banks; and then the wator from tha back swamp would come pouring into tho rivVr with the per pendicular fall juM, named, creating a iioine which could be heard at-considerablo dihtauco. This would so'.n raise tho river quite out ol its ba.iks, producing u wide spread inundation of the adjacent land If, now, wo examine the river above, we lind that its channel has not brought this surplus water upon us, but that it has ' ' come down through tlie 1> < y • >u l'iorru lakes and swamps from an enlargement of tone's Bayou and Iiayou Pierre, and over the cleared front lands in that vicinity, and through Lakes Uintineuu and Bodcau troni the Willow Ohutte and its swamps, and out of the great lakes Northwest of ■ShievepoTt. All tho lakes on each side ol the liver are full, and the overflow below must con linue until they are nearly drained. The vast amount of water which we see upon the land tnukis it appear impossible to restrain the floods; but its amount is greatly augmented by the rush of water throtigh the swamps and lakes, across ttie points of land made by the bends in tho live 1 ". This will he more folK >; 'ained when treating of the effect of the Juke* upon the ri vei. The river itself fails in this condition, to carry its proper amount of water; for up stream currents are found throughout more than one-half of the distance from Tiger Island to tho head of the ra't,, aad the whole flood pasaes over the land, just a» • ii> ugh no river channel eïi^t,ed. Previous to this complete inundation, the river was nearly full, i nd it had a^ strong current everywhere, cariying off ihe water rapidly : but now, since its cur-: rent is not only stopped at every influx from the swampe, but above these points is actually turned up-stream, it obviously carries a diminished quantity. If we could have caught up this over flow water, and prevent-d its entrance into the chain,id below, the river would have continued its work to the full extent, ol its capacity. It is precisely 'his excess water that I propose to arrest in reser Vfirs, and thus keep the river in the full performance of its natural t'unelions. Exactly how much water the tivor when bank-full w u Id carry, or how : much must ho hold back as excess water, it is impossi hie to tell; but it may lie presumed that a six foot levee tin each side would enable the river to carry all its flood water. If, then, a six foot leveo would do it, we have only to provide basins, or reservoirs to receive this six feet of water, running probably at the rate of five miies per hour; a length of time sfilflcient to carry off the surffîue water. Tin* river with such levees, bank-full, performing well its function» as a conduit, should carry off the Ii od in twenty or thirty days, and hence if we can catch and hold back 'his upper six feet for twenty or thirty'days, we may leave tho river with out the levees, and it will neither over flow, nor have up-stream currents, and the detained trater might be returned to the river when found expedient. Bed Biver at Alexandria, -whe.ro all its waters are confined to ono channel, is 7-20 wide. Making no allowance for slop fee iug banks, a section here 6 foot deep, w.-uld measure 720x6=4320 feet. This - etionof water running at the rate of 5 miles or 20,-100 feet per hour, would de liver 2,737,152.000 cubic feet of water in 24 hours; and in thirty days, 82,114,560,000 feet. This, then, is toe amount of water to be hold back, to prevent a flood without levees, and thus leave the river free from up-stream currents for thirty days. The grejit lakes Northwest of .Shreve port, according to the United States lano surveys, cover an area of 100 superficial miles. These surveys are presumed to have been made at lo» water, so that the? would cover a much larger ex' tr <•! c>un try ut high water: „»y -m miles. Tsn feot of water ou a surface of 190 superficial miles, would give us 62,968,960,000 cubic feet. Five feet on the additional 40 mileä, 5,575,680,000 do. To raise these lakes ten feet then, would require, in ali 5S,544,640,000 cubic ioet of watisr. Bythesame authority,the Bodeau lake covers 40 superficial miles. To raise this lake 10 feet, would require 11,151,360,000 cubic feet, but to fill the low swamp be tween tho lake and the river, would re quire nearly, if not quite much more, so we may probably calculate that 10 feet on this lake would require no less than 2^,000,000,000 cubic feet. > These two lake* with an addition of 10 ti.et of embankment would contain 78, 541,600,000 cubic feet of water. This gives us very near enough reservoir car acity, and if we require more, we can j either rai^» the water higher on tho lakes i ! above-named, or in addition to them, we can us« Lake Bistineau. To the more important of those stnto ) monts tbo survey» of Mr. Fuller, acting under the dirooli ti of the United Stales . War Department, furnish ample informa , ' ' 1 | ""y • "My survey was made during j tl,e lliw water of November ultimo, (1855), 1 and embraced a region of country extend ; "ig from the outlet of Bed Bayou to five miles. The total fall of the low water tiUfacö of tliu river trom lbe head of KlJ<1 üuyou to Shrevepori, i» 3GÖ0 feet, from Bayou to ! ho lieaa ol the present mit» Shreveport, u distance of about i-eventy a distance of four and one-half miles, but little it any full cxi>ta, the raft acting ty< a dam, backing the water for some twenty or thirty miles above. The eyoss section lines, run from the river, show that the surface of the country has a grmlnal lull from the river westwardly of about lîva and one half feet to the mile, while the difference of level of water surfaces is about three and three-fourths feet on tho *» r 'ie seciion, u li'lle over one footto the mile; consequently at low water the river has a constant tendency to flow to tho ur „ I I .1 . I , west through every natural outlet, desert .j i I v.- i -, nig its old channel, which runs,arj it were, ■. 1 . . , iii upon a riage, and sceuin^ a lower level near tne bluff-that border the Western hhnres of the lakes; while at high wutur, the banks being submerged, the currents Î naturally follow the samo direction. The obstruction of the raft has thrown a large proportion of the river (»bout three fourths), through two natural outlets (Dooley'sacd Bed Bayou),into SolaLake, affording a navigation around the raft, which is constantly improving as the ac tion of the water widens and deepens those channels. The channel, of Red Biver, from the head of tha present raft to Shreveport, besides being thus elevated» exhibits such an entire deficiency of width' depth and fall, that up-stream currents ;:re found through moro than ono half of its distance during freshets. The bed is !-irewn with logs, stumps, &c. The stream is not only narrow but very tor tuous, ac." i 1 I have made this quotation, to show the» fall of tho river from tho head of the ruft feet; and to shov? the fall of the surface of tho land, and water into the lakes, namely five and a halt and three and threo-quar ter feet per mile, respectively. The river m this distance is "very tortuous," be to Shreveport, a distance of about twenty - three miles in a straight line, to be 3660 cause the whole fall had to be distributed over its present length, in order that the soil might resist tho actmr> of the current. 11 is precisely this diffurence of level in tha river, between the head of the raft and Shreveport, which enables us to maVo au Immense reservoir of thene lakes; and judging from 'he tortuous course of the Willow Chutte. and its rapid current, tbo Bodeau l> ,kc, should be upon about the »aine level as tho Caddo. Tho rapid dt-ecuntof tho water by th« lake ronto, changes the local slope of the surface of the river, and while it is rising ten feet et the bead of the raft, it rif«o twenty-five feat at Shreveport. [Bee Be p'"'t of Captain Humphries end Liouten ae' Ahbott; page 3Ü], The difference then, in hi^h water, should b* 2160 feet, in stead of tfwenty-seven as stated by them on page 33, where the high water slope is given, both at the head of the raft and | at Shreveport. , The theory of tho plan which Ismail voca'ing, require» that the river should be kepi es neur bank-full r.t alt point» when in overflow is apprehended, as would bo safe, and leveed in thelorr placesi ; t0 K' ve its banks a regular and even *lope> I except where it is intended tbat tho rrater should run over its banks into tha reser According to Mr. Fuller's survey, the rivor banks at the head of the raft arr, eight feet above low water, while ot Hhreve !' ort > ^ are "b 011 . 1 twenl y fout - Tiie difference in level thén between tho top of tho banks at, the head ol* the reft, and at Shreveport, should be 2460 foot.
