A sure cure for blind, bleeding, itching and
ulcerated oiles has been discovered by Dr.
William, (an Indian remedy,) called Dr. Williams'

minutes after applying this wonderful sooth-inn
medicine, Lotions instruments and

Ointment absorbs the tumors, allays the intense
Itching, (particularly at night alter getting
warm in bed,) acts as a poultice, gives instant

Geo. IF. Ofcte it Co.,
News of a Veteran Navigator on Its Improvement.
Editor Vicfobvrg Herald: Ploase allow
me through the columns of your paper,
to address a few words to the planters of
the Mississippi Valley.
These people have been my trusted
friends and patrons for more than half a
century through all the years of peace, war
and pestilence; and in prosperity and adversity
alike .they have ever manifested a
feeling of friendship and earnest good will
toward me, the remembrance of which I
shall ever cherish with the kindest emotions,
and with a pleasureable pride that,
during my life time, I have at least been
esteemed a worthy object of so royal a
With me friendship is no superficial
sentiment, expressed in meaningless words
from the lips of the man who knows little
else of you than name. But it is an honest
impulse, resulting from personal predilections,
as interested suggested by the kindliest
motives, and a feeling inspired by the
most congenial and intimate association.
The impulse, my friends in the Valley
know, has ever been the tenor of my conduct
hi respect to them and their varied
interests, and 'in this spirit do I now address
To them permit me to Fay : My friends,
your fate is indeed a hard one. In your
convention your members of congress declared
to you in unmistakable language
that they could neither vote for or entertain
any resolution as to the improvement
of the Mississippi river, calculated to benefit
you, unless the same should meet the
approval of the Mississippi River Convention.
Neither could such resolution or suggestion
be submitted to the action of
congress unless approved by the Mississippi
River Commission; then again, your
representatives in congress, a few days
since, had the assurance to forward deliberate
instructions to the Mississippi legislature
positively commanding them to refuse
peremptoiily to vote for any and all
schemes looking to the adoption of the
Now, why not let the jetty system stand
upon its own intrinsic merits, if it has
any, and at the same time give to the
" Cowdon plan" a fair and impartial
hearing before the public in all its application
thereto? But then the members of
the River Commission before a Congressional
Committee the other day, iniormed
you and the country at large, that an outlet
through Lake Borgne would work untold
disaster to the county situated along
the banks, as it would create a general
overflow in that region.
Now will Major Harrod please exhibit
to the thinking and observing people of
the valley the map showing the particular
section that would be submerged in the
successful completion of the outlet indicated?
As (pr myself, I can see nothing, to
be affected by it save Lake Borgne itself,
which is onlv an arm of the Gulf of Mexico.
With Captain Eads and hifalutin
and ruinous applications of "science"
reste the responsibility of choking up the
mouth of the Father of Waters.
Ilis mattresses, piles, rocks and other
obstructions have succeeded most
in closing up the natural outlet of the
Mississippi, so that now the only remedy
suggested by the plain unvarnished dictates
of common sense for the escape of
this great body of water, without
to the country, is to givo it free
exit through Lake Borgne, thus relieving
the Valley and improving navigation accordingly.
Unless this done it will be forced to seek
some other outlet, and the result will be
that it will burst over its banks and rushing
blind over the land, devastate the
whole country within its reach, while the
ruined population will bo compelled to flee
to the hills for that protection which the
policy of credulence ' lias robbed them of
at home. . ' J-
" Just riow' the A chafalaya is the only
outlet the Mississippi has to assist its miserable
sluggish month, and even this one
is too small for the necessary requirements
of its discharging process. I do not
hesitate to say that the present trouble
from high watqr below and above and
everywhere, should be laid at the door of
the .Seven Wise Men that call themselves
the Mississippi River Commission, and
their grand high priest, Mr. Eads.
The miserable little funnel which these
gentlemen claim to be GOO lcet wide and
20 feet deep is not as large as the Kanawha
river when it is full, and yet, muzzled as
it is expected to carry off the waters of
one of the wildest and biggest and grandest
rivers in the world.
Just now there can be no relief from the
packets. The greatest suffering is back in
the region where the steam boats can not
reach. The dosolation witnessed by me
on the lower coast coming up last trip beggars
description. I have seen whole droves
of cattle huddled together on portions of
levees so insignicant that one would expect
to see them swept away with every
On that trip I saw hnndreds of people
whose every eflort was absolutely necessary
to the protection of their own lives,
and the abandonment of everything else.
They had lost, and were satisfied to lose
everything in the world if their lives were
The crevasses in Point Coupe are by no
means equal to the emergency and they
are unable to materially lessen the rise of
the water below. The mouth of the river
is gagged with a hundred obstructions, and
there is no hope for the poor planter of the
Let the people take this matter in their
own hands, prosecute the subject to the
bitter end, and give those who would delude
them into the false theories of a most
defective science no quarter, no countenance,
and naught save the contempt they
deserve. T. P. Leathers.
The Flooded South as Seen by One Eye
Mr. J H. Bradlee, of this city, returned
yesterday from, a two months' trip through
the flooded districts of the South. "People
up here have no idea of the teirible shite
of things," said he. "Such sights and
suffering of man and beast beggars description.
On Saturday morning I left Little
Rock by rail to Madison, forty miles from
Memphis. We were eleven hours going a
hundred miles, in many places the water
covering the track for miles. At Madison
we took the steamer Rene McCready down
the St. Francais to the Mississippi and up
to Memphis. Here the water spread out
nearly sixty miles wide, on an average of
fifteen feeu. deep, and in many places much
deeper. In the midst of these waters were
villages and farms almost deserted by all
except the live stock. We saw in one
place a narrow strip of land about a
hundred yards long and six to fifteen feet
wide. This was crowded with sheep and
cattle and hogs crazy with suffering, devouring
each other like ferocious beasts.
Where there was any chance of keeping
stock on land it was rapidly dying of buffalo
nits. We saw houses where the water
reached above the second floor. From
one of these two men in a dugout or small
boat came out and picked up a dead
animal that floated on the water and
carried it buck to the starving inmates of
the houses. On a raft in a small inlet we
saw sixteen mules and started to take
them aboard, but found them raving so
fejr.'ully and acting like mania 3 brutes
that we dared not go near. Several hogs
that were sitting on a log in the midst of
the water left it and swam up to our boat
crying almost like a human. Such screams
I never want to hear again. As we left
them they would swim back to the stump.
From one of the houses a man came out
with a letter for Memphis. Ho said his
wife had just dTeiTo'f starvation, and for
heaven's sake to send hira help," "
