Jacksonport on Thursday morning telephoned this city, that the town was nearly entirely under water, ex cept a small portion ot the main street, the guage registering 30.2 feet, while at Newport the highest water recorded for this rise was Thursday morning, when the river was on a stand at 28.7 feet. Newport is nearly a foot and a half lower than Jackson port and the advantage of levee protection can now be fully appreci ated. The Lake can now be seen by a person standing on Front Street, but the water is four feet at least from the top of the dump. No danger of an overflow is now feared as the levee and railroad dumps appear to be hold ing out all right and the river has reached a stand. Mount Olive reports a fall of five feet for Wednesday night and at Batesville, White is on a stand. Black River too seems to have done its worst and at Black Rock Thursday morning had fallen one inch, though the rise still continues nearer its mouth, at Elgin. WATCH REPAIRING AND CLEANING.
