Going south at 149th street, the tracks of the New York Central begin to rise gradually, and at 135th street they cross the Harlem river on the new four-track steel draw-bridge, at an ele- vat-iOn of 24 feet above high tide. This massive structure is remarka ble in being the first four-track draw bridge ever constructed, and is the largest bridge of the kind in the world. It is 400 .feet long and weighs 2,500 tons. The draw-bridge is '58 feet 6 Inches wide, from center to center of num 138th sttfeet south the lent tracks rtin t>vet the steel vlaflUcl t6 iioih street, aftd theHce by the sttma viaduct to 106th street, tfhef% the* strike the leve! of the Kreseiit tout- rack line. The Work ot building this massif* structure, which Is here llhtstfated, be gan Sept. 1, 18'93, and has continued without cessation until h6W, and will cost When completed considerably rnore than $3,000,000. The completion of the new work Will permit the opening of all cross streets under the railway and so admit a perfectly free passage for street traffic. One hundred and thirty-eighth street, which has become a great thoroughfare, Will be entirely free, as the trains which heretofore crossed it'at grade wilt pass over it at aft elevation that will' allow street cars and- all' traffid perfect freedom. At 125th street, the tracks will irosa the street fourteen feet above the level of the street, and at tins point a magnificent passenger station is to be built, extending from 125th to 126th street, under the four-track viaduct. This improvement will be Of im* mehse value to the entire state—in fact, to the whole country—as the bridge, being so .high • above the water, -.will never have to be opened, except when large steamers or vessels with masts aftd &fli,*Hhe city* IftS thrtfttgn tfaihs as welt as tSe r . suburban' tfalha WfWng afid tteftftrt- Ing duHng thosfc hbtifS, Tfets will avoid delays, which hftve beeto, U tithe*, vefry. antttfyWig, afitJ permit of much, faster service thaft could nftve beeh ttaintaifled tinder the old arrangements; and, as speed is one of the principal factors lit travel In this age. this feature wltl prove an important ohe.

The Harlem river, having been declared by congress a ship canal, the secretary of war has issued orders that all tugs and barges shall joint their smoke-stacks and flag-poles, to enable them to pass under the bridge while it is closed. He has also ordered tha"t the bridge shall not be opened between the hours of seven and ten o'clock in the morning, and four 'and seven, in the afternoon, except for police, fire or government vessels, the hours named covering tlie great business traffic in of other new buildings of less importance.

Although their influence in many respects may not always have >een what was most conducive to the prosperity of the new settlement, yet :he|r mode of treating the natives vas more humane and their plan for the development and progress of the coun- ;ry more advanced than any other attempts of that period. They sought to' establish a permanent home for their sect with a wealth and splendor that would equal that of the ojd world and their work was characterized by prudence, industry aud wisdom, Other settlers came only as fortune-bunting adventurers to enslave the natives, pillage the country and then return to their own land with ill-gotten gains. Monuments of the Jesuits still remain in churches; aqueducts, cities in ruins* and th« history of 100 prosperous missions; from the Amazon to Brazil's southern borders we see thejr signs, The aqueducts of Bio de Janeiro, the hundred churches of Baliia, the stone water dims on the rivers of Qoyag, the crumbling nilns of almost every state of vvajil tell of the Jesuit ,ocQW" patiop.
