In Ireland, events of a strange character
had happened in connection with the

emergency. Nothing, however, occurred
to justify tho fears of the authorities.

Your Committee respectfully report that
they have seen, for months past, many
bridges in various portions of tho city
either destroyed or left in a very dangerous
conditio.i to travelers-many of which are
of great importance to tho general public
thoroughfare. But as the condition of the
city is at present without the means of en?
forcing law and order, your Committee
would respectfully say to all whom it may
concern, you must look out for your own
safetv in "crossing bridges, or places where

rities relative to the various open wells

over foot pat tis made across open lots by

to withdraw. Tho sales only amount to
200 to 300 bags Rio, at 20?@2CJc., gold, for

The receipts of flour are light, and the
stock in the hands of the dealers is re?
garded as small, being estimated, of all
kinds, at 75,000 to 80,000 barro s. For export,
there has been very little inquiry the past
week, on account of our river and harbor
being obstructed by ice, together with the
decline in gold. City mills shipping brands
aro held at $11.75-no sales. Choice supers
are steadily maintained at $9. Some few

The partial closing of our river and har?
bor by ice the past week, has limited both
the supply and demand for corn, but the
requirements of tho vessels on tho berth
loading have caused prices to be maintain?
ed for -yellow, whilst for white tho sales
generally have been several cents higher

Notice to Planters.
KNOWING the great want, bv our
Planters and Farmers, of GUANO
and OTHER FERTILIZERS, and the diffi
cutly in procuring money at this time, I

will enable tho planter to procure tho
means of enriching his land and paying
for it out of the next crop.
FORD'S PHOSPHATE or FERTILIZER
is recommended and guaranteed to be as
good as any fertilizer in the market, t..id
to bring as good crops. Tried side by side
with Peruvian Guano. Applications must
be made immediately. For particulars ap?
