He then entered into a oom pariaou of the cost of railroad, canal, sea, lake and river transportation, and riowed than canal, and nearly 500 percent, cheap er than railroad, and asked, “Doesnotthis feet suggest a a solution of the question under discussion? 7 ’ The value of sraln : W she producer is the price paid in Liver pool, tees the cost of transit. He then shewed that he laid down in Sew Orioans 16 cents cheaper per bushel than via New York, and tW if the ad vantages of river transit could be fully used the exports from the Mississippi Valley would soon turn the balance of trade in our favor, and gold would flow from the old to the new rather than as K now from the new to the old world. He then stated why the advantages of cheaper transit on the Mississippi river could not be fully realised, by expluning the ob structions at its mouth, the inadequacy of water on the bar, fee., and cited the feet that during March and April just passed nearly fifty vessels were obliged to anchor off the mouth of die river two Government dredging boat to cut a*chan nel through the bar before they could reach the deep water of the rivet Let this obstruction bo removed, and the Mis sissippi river will give the ocean a ton nage equal to that of the whole world be sides. Less than half the amount requi site to suheidito a single Pacific RaiWl, of water sufficient to allow vessels con structed for the purpose to sail direct from Liverpool to St Louis. If this were ac complished, wheat could be transported • from the Mississippi Valley to Liverpool eight cents per bushel cheaper than from the Baltic grain-raising regions, and 18 cents cheaper than from the Black Sea. ■ In numbers, the two sexes are nearly equal in the United States; Males 19,- 493,565, females, 19,064.806. But the distribution is not even. The greatest ex cess of males is found in Idaho. 12.184 to 2,815 females; Montana. 16.771 to 3,824, Wyoming, 7,229 to 1,899, and Nevada, 32,370 to 10,112. Females are in excess in Alabama. 504,560 to 482,470; District of Columbia, 61,287 to 54,129; Georgia, 600,856 to 572,126; Louisiana, 336.345 to 328,743 ; Maine. 390,600 to 380,434 ; “ 3Ne!?*Hrap sbire, 147,698 to 140,991, New Jersey, 363,668 to 353,486, snd New York 1,647,214 to 1,597,192. Virginis, Ver mont. Tennessee, both Csrolinss, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Mex ico show a like excess of female popula tion. In Utah there are more males than females—2B,994 to 27,090. Q, ,, ' 1 ♦ 1 European Crops and American Pkicks.—Though the accounts from Europe respecting the condition snd pros pects of the growing crops are, for the moat part, of an unsatisfactory character, yet the New York BJktin. after a re view of the whole field, comes to the con clusion that there is nothing in the situa tion to warrant any speculative combina tions here for an advance on present rates. Wheat, at the present quotations in Rag land, we are told, is higher than the average of a aerie* of years, snd the ut most that seems warranted is a continu ance of the current rates. The food deficiencies of England are very heavy, and are likely to be huger next harvest year than this; but it must be remembered that steam aad the telegraph render it possible to count snd to obtain every bushel of surplus grain in any pert of the world. .Land Blidk.—A dispatch from Pitts burg, May 34, says a heavy and serious land slide occurred on the Pittsburg and OonaelhrviDe Railroad in a deep cut near Southampton twenty-three milea west of Cumberland. The first fell of earth and rocks took place Saturday last, and the slide took place Tnesday, and the earth track the deptTof fifty feet and for s distance of ten or eleven been at work day and night, building a The Norwich, Connecticut, Lock Com pany makes 1,300 locks per day. One of their recent inventions isa lock so con the whole. tor's house to another American people do not exceed 1800 a W*m.iXU,U.,M V 23.- -Aterrifc tornado or whirlwind, accompanied by had and rain, panted over this county, about aix miles north of Washington, yeaterday aJt> n It* path was about half a mile in width, and it tore into fragments every thing in it# course. Houses, barns, fences, trees, cattle, and human beings were caught up and whirled through the air like more toys, and then dashed to the ground with each violence si to produce instant destruc tion. Houses and barns were torn into fragments and scattered in all directions, and for milas around the fields are dotted with large timbers driven into the ground at an angle of ninety degrees. The cattle were actually driven head-foremost into the ground. • One can scarcely conceived the devasta tion or realise the force of the tornado. Already we have heard of thirteen fnrm housee and many barns that were literally tom to pieces, and many others badly damaged. School was in session at a school-house six miles north of here, and the tornado tore the building to pieces and carried the fourteen-year-old daughter of Henry Bothmcl about a quarter of a mile from the school. When found she was mashed to a jelly Miss Smith, the teach er, and six or eight scholars were injured, some of them severely. The wife of Henry Walters was killed. A Miss Gardner and the son of Abe Gibson lie at the point of death. Jacob Seek is seriously hurt- A Mr. Baker was hart in the back. The family of J. Campbell, near Keota, was injured. Mrs. McCoy was seriously hurt. A gentleman who was near the tornado reports that it was balloon-shaped, with the small end to the ground, and moved at the rate of twenty miles an hour. It begun ita fearful work at Keota, where it demol ished several houses. We next hear of it about six miles northwest, where it de stroyed two or three houses, and as it passed on northeast scattered to the four winds the fine residences and hires of Alexander Gibson, J. A. Babcock, and J. C. Calling ham. It also levelled to the ground (In dwellings of D. Caneer, F. and H. W alters, Mr. Carringer, and Mr. Kerr. The lives of many persons were saved by their hastily getting into the cellars of their houses. Sad havoc was made with all kinds of stock. From the description of an eye-witness it seems almost a mir acle that anything in the track escaped alive. He lays he could see large pieces of timber hurled from the clond as though shot from a cannon. Hall-stones fell that measured nine inches in diameter. Some were brought to this city, and four hours after they were picked up they were still as large as hen’s eggs. The roaring of the tornado was fearful, and could have been easily heard ten miles. At this place— six miles away —it was perfectly appalling, surpassing in terror anything ever heard, except war and the din of a terrific battle. A telegram from Keota last evening says that five persons were killed about three miles from that place. One child was torn to pieces. Many more lives were probably lost than those reported, and no estimate can be made of the stock killed. Nothing so terrible or violent has ever befallen this section of the country hereto fore, and it is considered a miracle that so few lives were lost. Phaikii City, Hi., May 23.—A fear ful tornado passed a mile and a half north of this place yeaterday about forty minutes past five. P. M. the extent of which is not yet known here, though it has been heard of from ten to fifteen miles cast and west. The storm travelled eastward, sweeping nearly everything before it for half a mile in width, blowing down houses, haras, out houses, fences, telegraph poles, and killing and injuring several persons. A number of hones and cattle were also killed and injured. The following are a few of the caaualities: Vanderver’s bouse was de stroyed and a boy fourteen yean old killed. Joel Nichol’s house and bare destroyed, and a child's leg broken so badly that it is not expected to live. Eight persons were in the house some of whom were more or less injured. A. J. Caytofl's house and bam destroyed, Cayton had an arm bro ken and one child killed. Charles Perry's house and barn were destroyed. Mrs. Perry was seriously, perhaps fatally injured. Andrew MullhoUand’s house destroyed, and he had a leg broken. Brendmeycr's house destroyed. He was alone in it, and was badly hurt. Some idea may he gain ed of the force of the storm from the fact that it carried heavy sills ten rods and even moved heavy stones some distance from the top* of cellar walls. ■ Keota, la., May 23.—The moat ter rific storm ever known in this part of the State passed over here about three o’clock p. M. It started, as far as heard from, ten miles southwest of here on Skunk Bottom, and traveled to within two or three miles of this city, sweeping everything be fore it. Up to the present time four per sona are reported killed, eight slightly hurt, and eight houses, three bums, one saw mill, and several granaries demolished Between 200 and 300 head of cattle were killed. Building material, agricultural implements, inehidiug thrashing machines, reapers, Ac., were strewn the entire length of the storm. The storm did not exceed in width from 100 to 400 yards. It is reported that the town of Lancas ter, fifteen miles southwest of here in this county, is in reins. Gaiko, May 23.—The heaviest storm of wind, rain, and bail that ha#been known here for year* began about three o'clock this afternoon The hail continued fall ing for nearly thirty minutes and the rain for nearly two hours. ADDITIONAL DETAILS OP THI STORM. Washington, la., May 23.—Addition al particulars of the tornado make the damage a great deal more than heretofore reported. Six more persons have died since the despatch of this morning was sent, making eight in all. The names of the victims not before reported are: La den House). Mr. Davison, Mr. Baker, a daughter of Jacob Seek, and two children of Henry Water*. There are many others who are very low and whose lives are despair ed of. These are all reported to us within six or eight miles on the line of the storm. To whst extent the storm raged in other parts of the country has not yet been learned. An enormous amount of prop erty has been destroyed. It is impossible to describe the scene after the alarm had passed. It resembled a long tract of conn hy that had been suddenly overflooded ofSte stonn wassueMhat nothing resisted.
