HARD BLOW FOR TURKEY. New Orleans, La., April 20.— The engineers take a pessimistic view o: the situation at the levees south ot the Red river, which guard the rich sugar diH- trict of Louisiana. The river is nearly Pt a standstill here, owing to the Biggs crevasse, which is diverting much water from the Mississippi and pouring •t into the Tens'as basin. As soon as the basin is filled up, which will be in about ten days, and the crevasse •waters begin to your back into the Mississippi again through Red river, it will cause a boom below, sending the water up two feet higher than it is now and probably causing one or more crevasses. This warning against overconfitlence has aroused the people. There arc 1,800 men at work at New Orleans raising the levee higher, and at nearly all points work is under way. The overflow from the Biggs crevasse in Madison parish now covers 45,000 acres of cultivated land— nearly the entire parish. It has finally reached its limit, however, being checked on the west by the Bayou Macon hills and on the north by a ridge at Omega. The relief camp at Vicksburg was opened Friday. It will provide for 11,400 refugees, but it is thought that it ought to be twice as large. There arc between 7,000 and 8,000 refugees, mainly negroes, from the overflowed lands of Louisiana and Mississippi now in Vicksburg, or half as many as the original population of the town. They are closely huddled together, and the authorities are afraid of sickness breaking out and are anxious to move them to the open air. The negro refugees have sold nearly all of their stock and poultry to provide themselves with food, and are getting pretty close to the starvation point. It was reported that a secret expedition had left New Orleans to cut the levee at some point above the city. This was telegraphed along the line, and arcused great excitement everywhere. Two men from the city were arrested at Emma and locked up in the parish jail to protect them from a mob, which thought them suspicious. An attempt to cut the levee at Palncourtville was reported and the levee cutters were fired at. THE DUCHESS OF YORK. ham House at 3 o'clock this morning, during confinement. ' WORK OF Y, M. C. A.
