VIOKSBURG, Feb. 10.—A rapid rise of the
river is causing much alarm in this section. A
teleg am was roceived by Captain W. L.
Marshall, United States engineer in charge of
this district, fr«m the office of chief engineer at
Washington, inquiring concerning the approach
ing Hood, and asking tho condition of the
lint siana levees from the state line to tie mouth
of th(* lied river, and also tho expected height of
tbe flood. Captain Marshall answered, that he
feared the water would attain ench a
height as te seriously threaten
the luvees, that all the gaps in tho Louisiana
levees from Aston to Vicksburg wore closed, ei
cf pt the gap at Montgomery's, four miles below
Lake Providence. liero ihe run around is be
ing built by the state of Louisiana, but the work
is rather backward. Marsh II states that if the
state authorities are not prevented by the con
tractor.-* from receiving such assistance, he will
take the responsibility of placing a force at
work at once, if nseded. Information was re
ceived to-day to the effect that the Opposum
Fork levea, Arkansas, for want of sufficient
means, will n<«t be in a condition to withstand
high water, \\f last year, over 200,000 cubic yards
being still required to complete the work
to one foot above tho high water mark of that
year. The main gap in that important line,
how-ver, will be closed anil tlio (jusntity of
water inundating nortln-ru Louisiana will be
much reduced The levees in this, the second
Mississippi district, are in a better condition
than ever before in the history of the levees in
this state; but the head of the Yazroo river is
still opo^ in the Upper Mississippi district.
Water is now flowing into St. Francis basin and
will begin to Inundate tho low lands of the up
|wr Mississippi district at about thirty-three
feet, Memphis gauge. At Lewis Swamp, Cou
ma county, beluw Flair's Point, and at many
placei above in Couma, De f^ota and Tunica
counties, it is about, the sums stage. At the
present rate it wi Ibe several days before the
river can do damage, as the rise will not reach
the upper Mississippi before that time.

'covering" claims carried on by settlers j

a scare crow to ward oif new comers who

causing a deal of indignation and
very likely will be settled by a vigilance j
committee: There seems to be a family; !
located on etsction 20, 130-60, that are at -
tenanting to cover tweive quarter sections,
although they do not as much as make an
attempt to live on but one or two of them.
If anyone is seen by them to be looking
at or even paeaiug over one of the claims
i they pretend to hold, they go to him, tak

It is a scant wonder, though, when one
come- to think about it, that when men who
havi- toiled and delved nearly all their lives
and never succeeded in scraping together as
much as 8100 at a time were suddenly me
of *10,000 or 820,000, tlr-ir greatest trouble
was to know what to buy first. The luxury
of purchasing intoxicated them, and no won
der they bought diamonds before dinners.
There is an old story—and it is likely a time
one—that one blustering winter night
a miner who had "fast made a big
haul was standing on a street corner
in L'.adville, when a hollow-eyed woman,
clutching a ragged shawl about her shi%-ering
shoulders, drifted up and stopped irreso
lutely. There was famine in her eye and
desperation in her rags. The miner was un
used to ladies 1 society and felt embarrassed,
but h • ft It also that sic was in distress, and
in the flush of bis prosperity and bigness of
bis heart he wanted to do something for her.
Finally he said:
'■ "Wait here a minute, missus; 111 be right
In a short time he returned, and pressiug a
bundle into her hands, hurried away before
she could stammer out her tearful thanks.
The outcast opened the package eagerly. It

Among the people I knew around the camp
was a man named Ed Braden. who divided
his time between reporting on a newspaper
and prospecting, and who loved to tell what
good and noble and sensible things be would
do should he happen to strike it. When for
tune did smile on him one day, he launched
immediately upon several enterprises not con
templated in the original prospectus. Among
other vatraries he became enamored of a
vivacious little soubrette who was playing at
the opera house, and arranged a unique and
remarkable testimonial to her beauty and
talents. At great expense he procured from
Denver some twenty or thirty hot-house
bouquets. Tbe holdei-s of these he ha i
weighted with a leaden spike—point down
ward, so when it was thrown upon the stage
it would stick in the boards and stand ere<-t.
His idea was to precipitate the whole number
at once when the soubrette made her appear
ance, and, to use his own language, ''trans
form the stage into a bower of rosea." To
this end he had a number of friends stationed
at different points in the audience, each bear
ing a deadly bouquet.
The curtain rose, the actress tripped on,
when bang! bang! bang! the flower-decked
missiles hurtled through the air. The poor
"irl, who had read something of wild west
ern ways, thought it was a plot to kill her,
and fled to the cellar, from which sho had to

ing piercing shrieks. The Braden party
were all somewhat inebriated and tbe more
enthusiastic fired their bouquets with such
reckless aim that one of them hit the leader
of the orchestra on tho ball head, and he
had to be held by two men while the gore
was being mopped off and explanations
made. All went a great ways toward
marring what might have otherwise been a
pleasant occasion. This is a fair specimen of
tha pursuits in which Braden spent a very
decent fortune and succeeded in three briei
months in getting back into scrub-jcurnalisin
and prospecting again.
A contemporaneous gentleman of fortune
was Capt. Connors, well known to all resi

story of his first "stake." He received 840,

hours was gambled out of every dollar. Hi

It was by no means the rough and illiterat

business after noon, and my mother-in-law
used to say sometimes that I was 'h

scarcely sleep. The next morning I had my
coachman knock tho necks off all the cham

six dozen; tho port and other medicinal wines
I gave away in cases of sickness, and th
liquors I returned to the dealers. That wa

Oyster Culture in England. '*.'.
Ihe past season lias again been very dis
raging to oyster cultivators in England,
the conviction has been forced upon
n that further experiments will be only
vaste of money. From one end of the
chern coasts of England to the other
!is:i:id.i of pounds have been expended in
endeavoring to protect tho spawn at spawn
ing time, but without tb lea t sign of suc
cess. 'I he cause of the failure is the want of
Iperatare. Only native oysters will breed
tho estuaries of tho Thames, but of late
rs tho summers have been so short and
1 that there has been but very little spat,
this is tho reason of the scarcity and con
lent dearness of the "native," which tho
dish esteem the best of all oysters, Arti
d breeding iv England has been a failure.
■ only real success in the artificial breed
of oysters has been achieved at Arcachon,
he south of France, but even there, dur
ng the last two or three cold and wet sum
mers, the crop of spat has been only about
I"ourth of what it has usually been.

without employing thorn, and so with

lious contrivance is now used by the
hmen of Paris in all magazines wh n
jsive or inflammable materials are kept,

an oblong vial of the whitest and clearest
glass, and put into it a piece of phosphorus
about the size of a pea. Pour some olive oil
lated to the boiling point upon the phos
orus; till tho vial about one-third full, and
in cork it tightly. To use this novel light,
novo the cork, allow the air to enter the
ii, and then rocork it. The empty space
the vial will become luminous, and the
ht obtained will bo equal to that of a
np. When the light grows dim, its power
n be increased by taking out tho cork and
owing a fresh supply of air to enter the
il. In winter it is sometimes necessary to
at the vial between the hands in on lei to
crease the fluidity of the oil. Tbe appa
tus thus made may be u-ed for six months.

[Chicago Tribune.]
An ingenious method of putting a check
upon chatter has been devised by a school
teacher, who was recently charged in a Lon
don police court with assaulting ono of his
Ipils. The defendant, it appeared, being
pleased with a boy who persisted in talk
; during le.-son-time, fastened a strap with
lip-knot around the tongue of the offender
1 then tied tho other end of tho strap by a
cc of string to a chair, thus effectually
>veuting a continuance of the nuisance.
ter hearing tho evidence the magistrate
missed the summons on the ground that
• tying of the boy's tongue was not any
d punishment. The boy seemed to have
been very r much given to talking, and it wa
therefore thought advisable to degrade bin;
the same as by puttiug a fool's cap on hi;
head or tying tho arms of a boy given to
fighting. The Loudon St. James' Gazette ad
vocates a similar contrivance lor Irish "mem
