, In. making this call for a . Republican
State Convention, tlie SUite Central Com
inttte'e realiwHhe Wet that too much impor
tance canuot be attached to preliminary
operations. This being a "government of
tlie people, by the peojile. for the people,"
the agents fr oflieers sot .he government
shonldbeiii accord witli the people. Ac
cording to the geueral accepted plan of
selecting caiididates.'thc first steps are ta
ken In itt primary, comity and State conventions.-
These form the gi-ound work of
political organization upon which the whole
superstructure must stand or fall. If hon
est men desire honest officials, is it asking
too "-much that they lay aside for a day all
(Cher basiiiesflur3 and devote tlie time
necessary to-select proper persons to attend
county and State conventions?
s in view oi these consuierauons aim oi me
uiportaut iutercsts at stake we earnestly
stppeal to all legal voters who arc in sym
pathy with tlie principles ot the Ilepubliean
party, regardless of personal likes aiul dis
likes to rally at tlie primaines, and see to it
that-none but true men are entrusted, with
the business of preparing for tlie coming
political campaign: Select men who arts
not only, true themselves in the. broadest
Sen5C ot that term but men of discermnetit,
inen who can'find wiHelmoee wisely for the
good of the people in defijuice of 'rings"
nd cliques."' , , - ,
It is unnecoessarv at this time to reiterate
iu this call the principles ot the Ilepubliean
panty : its glorious record ts still fre?h in
hmemrymf enlightened; public; it
is sound ujxm all .the great principles affect
ing our national existence ; it- is tne parry
of progress and development it exposes
corruption wherever found and inflicts pnn
Hlime nt upon conspirators, tearful and snd
den witliout respect of person or position ;
it lavors. tlieiiniversal enliglitenment of the
Jeole without "trairimel of creed or ism i
and its banner is found in the- van leading
on tlie hosts of reformers in all that tends
to higher civilisation and enlarged freedom.

THE niNNINNIPPI JETTIES.
The mattresses have been runk iu the
east jetty beyond the crest of the bar,
while so tar all the work on that sea
wall has remained solid, and grows firm
er every day as the deposit on the exte
rior of the work is rapidly covering It,
as was expected or counted upon, and
hence the work is being set as "solid as
rock. On the western wall the work is
being laid from the outer end landmark.
As fas as both walls have been complet
ed the depth between them has increas
ed from twenty.fi ve to thirty feet.
Though the attrition nearer tlie ; si tore
is necessarily slower than further on on
account ot the greater age and solidity of
the deposit.- From the land outward
the channel t the greatest depth has
been cut near the western wall j as the
eastern jetty being completed first de
flected tlie line ot swift current as far
down as the line was completed enough
to illustrate practically the jetty theory,
while ft tolerably uniform and constant
ly Increasing depth has . been obtained,
making Jhe theory : settled axiom.
On tlie arrival at the crest of tbe bar,
which before tlie work was well com
menced had only seven feet of water, a
depth almost incredible to all but the
engiuers iu charge was demonstrated to
exist; as the boat proceeded the line
showed fourteen, sixteen and occasion
ally even eighteen feet. With lead
heaving at intervals less than owe hun
dred feet apart all the way across the
bar iu the channel ot the swiftest current,
fourteen feet was the least depth found.
After going to deep water the vessel re
crossed thQbar. In the channel men
tioned again they found the minimum
depth to be fourteen and the maximum
eighteen feet. , . :
The line of the : greatest depth was
found to be about two hundred feet east
from and parallel with the western
wall, but extended far beyond the outer
end ot that jetty. On the results men
tioned being practically demonstrated,
Captain Ilassctt said he was satisfied a
steamer could go, drawing fourteen feet
of water, to sea through this pass.! Col.
Andrews added that"yep,and to-morrow
he would guarantee to take a steam
vessel diawing sixteen feet over." The
first result of the work, that ot increas
ing tho velocity of the current to such
a degree as to enable it to hold a great
er amount of sediment in suspension and
to sever away the deposit, has i been
practically reached, and tho second, ot
course, follows as a corollary, event,
which only needs a very little time to
work out that is, to scour out enough
mud to make the channel tweuty ; feet
deep. The distinguished engineer in
charge stated that within four weeks, a
depth ot water of eighteen foet across
the bar before South Pass would be a
The velocity of the current in the
Pass has already been increased to five
and six feet per second by ; running a
wall ot willow mattresses nearly : 1,000
