[From the New Orleans Picayune, May 17.] THE CREVASSE AT SAWVE'S. The accounts received from the crevasse at Sauve'i yesterday altornoon. are of the most discouraging ehu racter. and leave no hope that the How of water will b checked at present. By direction of the joint oommil tee appointed by the First and Second Municipulit Councils, bis Honor the Mayor sent a communicalio to Mr. Dunbar yesterday morning, requesting of hit nil the information regarding the crevasse, and his opl inon as to the probability of stopping it by pursuin the present plan. Mr Dunbar, in his reply, dated at o'clock I'. M? states that he ' has a hopeless task t perlorm.'' having labored earnestly for a week trillion making any progress, lie stated that in his tirst object that of establishing a firm breakwater, ho has as ye entirely failed; and that this must be accomplished be foro anything can he done. The volume of water, although materially lesscnci at onetime. Is now as great as ever, and Its depth i such that piling will not stand against it in the sof ground at the bottom. In justice to Mr. Dunbar, w would state that the plan which has thus far been pur sued was not suggested by bitn; but as the works wer commenced before lie arrived on the ground, he dit did not sue (it to change the plan of operations in hi letter. Mr D. states his wish to be recalled at onee.if th cimitni.l,,,. jtvil! .Ifi-tn it ,>Tn,..l i..n t tr> >1.. uiwl mln? nny new plan. He also stales that ho yesterday morn ing conversed with several planters in the vicinity, win stated that if some definite and apparently feasild plan was adopted, and the city would furnish mate rials, they would send hack their negroes and pursu the work vigorously until It should he completed Mr. Dunbar sent down to the committee a plai which had just been submitted to him. and which h< stated to be very similar to one he had formed in hi own mind. In conclusion, he slates that he shall con fine his efforts to prevent tho enlargement of th breach until he receives more definite instructions. The joint committee met. at 4 o'clock yesterday nf tcrnoon, at tho office of the Mayor.when his honor sub mitt* d to them tho communication from Mr. Dunbar After examining the numerous plans which had beet offered, the committee came to the eoucl?sion not ti adopt any of them without first consulting the surrey ors A resolution was accordingly adopted, recalling Mr. Dunbar to the city, that he may jointly with tin other surveyors examine all the plans submitted fe stopping tho crevasse, and decide upon which to pur sue, when the worn will be resumed The same rosolu tiou instructs Mr. Dunbar to leave the crerasso it charge of some one who will have at his disposal a sufli cient lorcc to prevent tho breach from enlarging. Thus the matter =tanrts at present, and. as will Is seen, wo are to have tho water flowing in upon us fo: n week or ten day* to come, at least. No means of pro renting the further spread of the flood in the eit; should therefore be left untried. At the same time. w< do not think it possible to lower tho present height o water to any considerable extent., whilo tho erevassi continues open; and cvon were it done at this point the relief would be but-temporary. If tho water in thi swamp near the crevasse were to he lowered suddenly the rush through the breach would be much more rapid and the volume would In a short time become mucl deeper. About all that can be done at present is ti prevent tho water from rising in the city higher than i already is. Its present stage is. however, bad enough Hundreds of houses are surrounded by the flood, am around a large number of them the water is from threi to four feet deep.

In this wo think tliey maki the same mistake that the residents in the upper par ol the Second .Municipality did when they thought tha breaches made in the lower bank of tho new c-ana would save them from inundation. Tho water in the different streets was about thi fnme last night t>< when our ereulng edition went t< press. In soma places yesterday forenoon, a visible fal took place, and raised a vain hope with many that drj times were coming, llut tho fall was not in the wato: front tho cruvaese.

Fays?I reside In Itochoster, corner of Kent and Dean streets; kuew the late Thomas Nott; he lived something west of my house, ' at the corner of Dean and Oak streets; knew Nott for ^ four years, nnd with prisoner has been acquainted about three years; the doctor was a practising physician; recollects some time in February was called lip by the * prisoner, about half-past twelve at night, on a Saturday; prisoner said lie wuntcd me to go over to N'ott's immediately, as Nott was in convulsions; I went; pri* soner went directly back, and I as soou as I could dress; h after getting into the sitting room, I saw Nott on the sofa, the doctor behind it. and the servant girl at his , feet; this girl was mimed Roach Swurthe: the doctor had hold of Nott's hauds wlieu I first went in. ani the '1 svrrnnt girl was holding his feet; Nott was iucotivul' sions; there wasjk trembling of his arms, which wore urawn up; no-Kept twiichiug his tinkers at times; his , hands wore clenched at different times very powerfully; The movements of his legs were very much the same 1 with his arms; he did not seem to throw them about (! much, but the muscular twitching* were very strong; he remained in these positions until the spasms grew ~ less, and they concluded to undress him and put him i to bed; there was a disposition to throw up from the stomach; Nott requested he should be held down; ? when 1 tf-st took my sent, my elbow rested on his t breast, and he requested me to move it; hi* hands were draw n burl;, but not very far; they appeared to be thrown buck violently; when he was thrown hack, his jf" eycl would roll back and change their positions; did not notice any change in his color, but at times his face would flush up and give Indications of congestion, so much so that I asked the Doctor if there was out fear of it; this flushing up was during the severer attacks; there was nn intermission of ten minutes, and perhaps half an hour, between the several attacks: only three of us held him for two hours; nfter I got there, the paroxysms appeared to increase; he was relieved afior a while, by the doctor's bleeding bim; he was bled a very few moments after I got in; ho took from his ] arm about two-thirds of a bowl full, which would probably hold about a quart; he seemed relieved after the ' blood began to flow; after the vein was opened the 3 blood flowed slowly, for two minutes perhaps, and then increased; there were no other artificial means used to ' make the blood flow, except the bandage; the twilchiugs then seemed relieved, Bnd 1 asked Nott if he was re. lleved, and he said lie was: tho paroxysms became violent again, in almost teu or twentv minutes, when [ he was bled again; the intermission between the two * bleedings was about half an hour; the second time, the blood was takcu in the same bowl, and the quantity was small, compared with tho first bleeding; it appeared the doctor did not wish any more taken; after the . second bleeding, the patient appeared relieved somewhat; it was alter the second bleeding that tho no.it " violent paroxysms took place; from a half to three ; quarters of an hour alter it; the doctor attempted two r other timesto give him medioincs; three time* at les?t; It Vfti!

Sneider, ' were tried on an indictment charging them with grand T larceny, in stealing $109 from Henry Lvertson, a discharged soldier, on the 2d of May last. The complainant Ever mow, being sworn, testified that bo was paid off, and discharged from the 2d regiment ailillery, U. S. Army, on the 2d of April last. The t amount of his pay and his travelling expenses from St. c Louis here, with the proceeds of a land warrunt, which s he had sold, was nearly all in his possession when he 1 arrived in this city. On the day set forth in the com- 1 plaint, Evrrtscn was in a public house, called "Monte- c Crlsto," in Church atreet, and while there, was in- ' dticcd to show about $60 in gold, which he offered to v put up on a bet.
