RIVER RISING RAPIDLY.
The river gauge registered 18.5
feet at noon, yesterday, and is ris
ing at the rate of three feet every
twenty-four hours. This is an unus
ually high rate this low down on the
river, and is made possible by she
present low stage. This rise is caus
ed by the very heavy rains in the
country along the Mississippi's north
ern and eastern tributaries. It is
expected that the river will be bank
full here within the next two weeks,
and levee work will be interfered
with. The outlook for this section
is not alarming, at present.
