KlVKlt AND WEATHER.
Tho river last evening was -1 1 feet 5
and 1-3 inches on tho gauge, having risen
H 2-3 Inches during the previous 2 Ihoura.
The weather Is dear and warm.
Tho condition of the rivers eUuwhcru
as shown by the Signal otllco report Is as
Pittsburg, IS feet 8 Inches, tell 2 feet 4
inches ; Cincinnati, 52 feet 2 Inches, rose
a feet 2 inches ; Louisville, 21 feet 2
inches, rose I foot; Nashville, 12 feet 0
Inches, fell 0 Inches; St. Louis 33 lect 11
Inches, fell 12 Inches.
Itcport suys the Charles Morgan Is
coming up on ono wheel.
The Cairo Base Hall Club went out
on the FIsk yesterday to let the Paducah
chaps take another belt at them.
Tho J. W. Mills broke a follower at
Island No. 8 and eiuiio back here for re
pairs. She was Inking a large tow or
stave barges to New Orleans.
A great deal ot corn Inside tho le
vees above tho city Is being drowned out
hy tho water collected since the rains.
One man we saw lost 120 ncres.
The eorntleld over the river that Is
now in great danger Irom overflow con
tains 60 acres, and belongs to Tom Kref
tt'A all he lm In the world nnd will ruin
him If lost.
The General Anderson yesterdnv
brought down 4 barges of Piulucah
gravel Intended for St. Loul-, but we lie-
Here that one of tliemliasl)een purchased
by this city for trial on our streets. The
others will lie taken to St. l.onl- ns soon
ns tho current will permit.
The St. Louis Globe of yetcnl.tv
published A dispatch from Cairo stating
that the -Mississippi Is cutting away the
levee at ome points back of the city.
Wt took a tramp around tho levee vc-
terday evening lu search of that hole
and failed to llnd It. The levee I lu ex-
ellent condition and It would require o
feet II Inches more water to place If in
The Mississippi Is beginning to glvo
the people of Missouri tits. About titty
teres of Greenfield's land Is Inundated
and tho water is almost up to the
edge ol Mr. Clark's cornfield. Green
field's land Is very high and Is scarcely
vcr ovcrllowed. The lakes lu Missouri
arc diverting a great deal of water from
the river and are now miniature oceans.
The transfer steamer Junius S. Mor
gan was seized at tho MU-ourl shore
yesterday, but upon what grwind- we
could not definitely learn. The lerrv
boat Is again doing tho transter business,
and as It costs about eighty dollars per
day to run Die Morgan and only about
thirty to transfer by the ferry boat, wc
suppose her owners are not sorry.
While on our trip yesterday, and at
the point where the narrow gauge road
Vcd leaves the lovco we found a large line
looking red and white spotted cow lying
In the edge of the river w here she had
been knocked by a pa-snig i night train
at 2 p. in. One of her legs was broken
and she was unable to help herself out
of the water. She belongs to a colored
man named Davis and as ho was untitled
of her condition, she Is no doubt out of
ml-cry by this time.
