Opening the Mississippi. Admiral Porter has opened the Mississippi by proclamation. Now, we assure the Admiral that proclamations don't open rivers any more than resolutions build railroads. He seems to have a feint glimpse of this recondite fact, for he takes care to let it be known that steamboats will be convoyed from Cairo, and that a train will arrive at New Orleans once a week, a sufficient force starting a day or two ahead to protect them and clear the way. And this is called opening the Mississippi! This is the substitute for that multitude of steamers arriving every hour in the day in New Orleans which made that city the marvel of the earth! Was there ever a more ridiculous facile to a thundering programme?
