Attempt to Ntritl n 'renin ol' It omen.
On Tuesday night, a negro who has
been n teamster In this city tor some
time, went Into the stablo of Frank Jenk
ins, a colored man, also a teamster, and
made an attempt to steal a valuable team
of horses owned by Jenkins. He made
considerable noise while In the stable,
which attracted the attention of a col
ored man living near, who got up and
want to sco what was the matter. When
.ho entered tho barn, the would-bu thief,
who ran away, had succeeded In getting
a bridle on ono oi tho horses, am', was
undoubtedly about to harness the other
when ho was frightened away.

you will make a good avlng of your

All that he has done, or will ever he able

July 1, 187.").
The weather to-day has been cloudy
and threatening rain, but the day elo-ed
leaving the country dry, and still hope
ful for a season that w 111 permit the harvest
to bo gathered. Reports of the wheat and
corn crops are very favorable, but fears
are entertained that the oat crop may
prove a partial failure; owing to the straw
laving grown so rank, and the storms
having "lodged" it, the grain mav rot as
It lays, without ripening. Particularly
this w ould lw the case should the wet
weather continue.
The rivers are very high for thU season
ot the year, but not. so high as might be
expected from the quantity of rain that
has fallen.
The market In Its dlllerent branches
still rulesqulet anddull; very little change
has occurred in '.trices. Transactions are
limited. The small vol tune of sales maybe
partly accounted for by the closlugof the
month, and the fact that dealers are hold
ing back their orders to go on a new
month's business. The outlook, we con
sider a little better, and we predict a re
Vlval lu business soon. There is certain
ly plenty of room for improvement.
THE MARKET.
ItS-Our friends should bear III mind
that tho prices here given are uwutiy lor
sales from first bauds lu round lots, in
tilling order and for broken lots It Is nec-
ess.ary to cliarge an advance over these
llgures.-n
FI.OL'R:
The market Is heavy and dragging.
Very few orders come in. Prices are
weak, and have a decided downward ten
dency. Stocks are heavy all round. We
note sales of 200 barrels XX Spring,

It appears that the report ot Capt.
Darrah's marriage was rather premature.
We are told that lie Is still an lndepcii-
dant candidate for that enviable condi
tion. .
.Mr. O. M. Hequembourg, Cairo agent
of the Cairo, Arkansas and Texas rail
road, resigned yesterday and .Mr. J. C.
Zhnuier, of Little Rock, takes his place.
Tho Cairo City nnd Philips' wharf-boats
were consolidated yestcrday,aud tho firm
Is now Halliday & Phillips. In the courfu
of a few days tho mammoth wharf-boat
heretofore belonging to J. W. Phillips A
Co., will be taken out on the ways and
overhauled, after which tho otllco of the
consolidation will bo moved upon It.
The banana artielo lu tho local col

to turn an honest penny by ."pur
chasing fruit at New Orleans and
selling It to dealers along the river. They
are expected to do It. It has been their
custom ever since the river was first navi
gated, and dealers along the shore have
been supplied monthly In this way at all
times. Now It may be that when a por
ter or barkeeper brings up say three or
four bunches only, that tie can get them
through without paying freight upon
them; but to say that any
larger number of bunches Is so carried
Is simply nonsense. Freight 1 charged
upon them just as upon everything else
and without respect to persons. Again,
It Is generally the bar-keeper who deals
hi fruits, and when he purchases his bar
from the boat he pays extra tor these
privileges. Then, hi the port where his
home Is located he ha the customary
taxes to pay that are usually Imposed
upon his line of business; so that he has
none of the advantages claimed by the
"Merchant," and we would say, In con
clusion, "Merchant" has none of the. ad
vantages that he would evidently so well
like to possess lor the purpose of making
a big corner on frult.
