this great river is the cause of nncea'sing
anxiety both to the public and to the Gov
ernment. For several hundred miles from
the sea its batiks are marked out into short
sections, each with its allotted guard. Offi
cers of the highest rank and the greatest ex
perience are appointed to superintend the
whole. During the Yi'imer und Spring
when the waturs are .low, necessary repairs
re carried out assiduously ut the cost of
vast sums. hen the season of the bum

watching the conduct of the Bt renin, and,
with materials stored at humf, is ready to
strengthen at nny point in the banks which
may snow signs oi weakuess. Hull year by
year, almost without exception breaches oc
cur at some unexpected spots, und wide
tracts are overrun by the waters which carry
away all hopes of the autumn harvest, aud
perhaps also the very homes of the peasant
iaruiers. But the sufferings caused by these
common and partial inundations, severe iu-

uecu muiigu it ue, is uoiuing ooinparca witu
what has befulleu the land ou a few terrible
occasions, among which the preseut one
must be numbored. within the last few
weeks the river has broken its banks at a
point about 300 miles from the coast. It
Las entirely deserted its former bed, and its
waters, swollen by Hood, have poured down
upon a thickly inhabited plaiu, spreading
death and desolation to Jin uupnralled ex-
tent, and forcing an entirely new road for
themselves to the sua.
During tho past 2000 years the Yellow
River has changed it course five or six times
discharging its waters by a new mouth, dis
tant trom the old one as much, perhaps, as
three or four degrees of loiicitude. For
500 years up to the middle of the past cen
tury, it euturea the sea a little to the south
of the Shantung province whose bold prom
ontory catches one s eye instantly ou the
map, projecting far into into the ocean be
tween the Yellow Sea aud the Gulf of Poch
ili. In A. D. 1852 it burst its northern
bank about 250 miles inland, and cut a new
bed for itself throughout the northern part
of Shangtuug into the gulf of Pechili. Of
the particulars of the calumitv, and the vast
amount of suffering and destruction that
must have ensued, we know little or noth
ing. Inland from Shantung is (he provinco of
Honan, with Kalfcug, its capital, on the
south bank of the Yellow river. About
forty, miles west from Kalfeng stand the
second-class city of Cheng or Cheng Chou.
The hitter half of September was unuusually
wet aud stormy in Northwest China. The
local streams were tilled to the brim and
overflowing, und a heavy freshet was com
ing down the Yellow-' River, which in Ho
nan is something over a half mile broad.
A little below Cheng Chou there is a bend
iu the river where the stream is borne against
the south shore. The embaukmeuts were
sodden with ten days continuous rain, aud a
strong wind blowing down the beach added
to the force of the current. The waves
dashed .violently agninst the embankment,
curried away first the protecting fascines
aud not long after the eurtheu witll behind
them. The breach at first extended for
only a hundred yards, and the main body
of the streum continued to follow its own
channel. Frantio efforts were made to close
thgap but its sides rapidly crumbled
sway till it widened to a breadth of 1200
yards, through which issued the whole con
tents of the river.
Parallel with the Yellow river, between
it and Cheng Chpu, run the Lu-cbia river,
a water course of no size. The escaped tor
rout poured into the valley of this stream,
rushing down it toward the east. Twenty
miles trom Cheng Chou stood Chuugmoii, a
walled city of the third rank. Iu the dis
trict of which it is the chief town 100 vil
lages were swallowed up etirely, aud the
lauds of 300 more were inundated. The city
itself is reported officially to be utill stand
ing, encircled by the waters, but privute ac
counts represent that both it and its popula
tion are buried beneath the waves. The
flood, still keeping the lino of the Lu-cbia,
then turned, southward, a mass of water
from 10 to 20 feet deep in the uiidKt and
stretching iu width thirty' miles, without
counting less important offshoots which in
vaded the valleys of adjacent streams. Chlih
sicn ('hen, one of the principal trading cen
tres of China, lay in the direct course, but
fortunately being on higher ground, escaped
with the loss of a few suburbs. Seventy
miles due south of Kaifeng Lu-cbia joins a
lurger river coining from tho west. Nut far
below the point of junction the flood, aggra
vated by the accession to its volume, rose to
a height even greater than before. The
country there traversed by it is low lying
aud very fertile, and the population corres
pondingly dense. In a tract which must be
Jess than thirty miles square as many a
1500 villages were submerged. Not far be
yond this locality the inundation passed into
the neighboring province of Annul, from the
Government a) which no reports have yet
been published'. The people there must
have received warning of the impending dau-g.-r,
end it is bvlieved that the Hood, though
spreading very widely, bus been less deep
and violent. The loss of life, should, there
fore, be much less, but the destruction of
property must be immense all along the val
ley of the Huai river to the sea. "The num
ber of persons drowned in Hnuun can never
be reckoned with any approach to nccii'scy,
and cuu hardly even be guessed. Haaiding
a conjecture, i will say that it cannot be less
tban 1,0011,000, and probably is not so high
as 2.000,OvHJ. Still the European in Pekin,
who by his relations with the Chinese Gov
ernment is in a position to be better in
formed than any one else, has put the num
ber at 7,000,000. Official reports stute that
j very few escaped of those hose home were
in tne miusi oi me noou, tnougn a smau
number were rescued iu boats from tree
I tops or high monuds.
( There is no intention on the part of tht
: Government to allow the. river to remain as
it is. Unlets have been issued to close the
j breach and confine the water to its old chan
i nel with all jmssihlc speed. With this ob
' ject the Imperial Treasury has been directed
to forward IjOo.ouu to the local authorities,
aud so furnish further funds at they may bt
required. As (he water diminishes wonder
fully during the Winter months, there is
reasou to hope that tho attempt may lie suc
cessful. Should it fail, the inhabitants of a
densely populated tract of country nearly
100 miles iu length will be Condemned to
years of hopeless misery, till most of them
have perished off the face of the earth; and
the task must be begun of emhutikitm the
river on both sides for all this distance.
Mcsnwhile the Emperor Is not forgetful ' of
his duly toward his suffering people. Be
sides the private gift of the Empress men
tinned above, a sum of 75,000 has been ap
iiriated for the relief of distress. Also
32,e"Oi0 pounds of rice, which should be
sent iMt Spring to Pekin from Central
Chiua, is to be dispatched as soon as possi
ble to the Hooded country instead. A num
ber of soup kitchens have already Iwen
established, each of which is besieged by
several thousand refugees. Mat sheds and
warm clothing will be provided in the Win
ter; and the Governor, miudful of the possi
bility of rebellion, proposes to keep as many
thousand of able-bodied men as he can out
of mischief by enrolling them as laborers on
the repairs to the embankments which are
shortly to be undertaken. Lastly, should
any of the officials engaged Iu distributing
relief be found guilty of malversation, their
superior officers are authorized to apply to

The symptoms of Bilionsuess are unhap
pily too well known. They differ in differ
ent individuals to some extent. A Bilious
man it seldom a breakfast eater. Too fre
quently, alas, be has an excellent appetite
for liquids but none for solids of a morning.
His tongue will hardly, bear inspection at
any time; if it is not white and furred, it is
rough, at all events.
The digestive system is wholly out of
order and Diarrhea or Constipation nmy be
a symptom or the two may alternate. There
are often Hemorrhoids or even loss of blood.
There may be giddiness and often headache
and acidity or flatulence and teuderurss in
