Memphis, Aug. 8 - The river continues to rise at this point. A crevasse is reported at Willis' plantation, just above Island Ten, Friday night which swept over that plantation, containing about 3,000 acres, and thence to St.. Francis Valley, which increases danger on the Arkansas side. Planters on that shore, between hero and Helena, are working on the levees to prevent an inundation of their lands.
