I ,n, of the decided opinion that Mr, Edwards. would not have bought these lands had he foown such law was cntemplated I do not know vhat intersts if any Mr Biiley. has which may be eftected by the levee District Act, but it is readily evi lent that Mr, Edwards, ba a tesil tsable one, and that he folly shares I your wrongs and sufferq from this -reat injustice which cries aloud for edresa. 3.
