wanted a stop put to It. A warrant was
thereupon Issued aud Ofllccr Lallue
brought Lizzie up. Sho was lined five

the prisoner to go with the promlsu to

The suggestion ent us yesterday lor
publication by "Olin," in regard to a pe
tition being presented to the city council,
praying that certain conveniences for the
bcnellt of those sinners we have heard
spoken of very recently, is a good one,
and would, no doubt, draw forth bless
ings from thosti in whom "Olin" seems
to feel so much Interest. Experience
is tlic teacher that proses to us how un
pleasant it is to work under dlfliculties.
and we cannot help believing therefore
that "Olin," w hile ho no doubt feels and
displays much interest in thu happiness
of his tellow-meu, Is also looking to his
own convenience.

Too Many Drink.
On Tuesday afternoon, a party of East
em drummers, who, It would seem from
their conversation, had not enjoyed the
pleasure of each other's company tor
mnny days, nrrived In this city, and after
stowing away their traveling bags and
other incumbrances, wended their way to
a saloon on Commercial avenue for the
purpose of talking over old times and
having a good time generally. They took
a drink all round, then they talked. Then
they took another drink and sang a song.
Then another drink was called for, and
then one of the party, who seemed to bo
In a greater state of hilarity than Ids com
rades, favored tho boys with a song and
dance. This was followed by a jig by
another ot tho party, and was topped off
with another drink. This routine, which
no doubt was very amusing to the party,
was kept up until about six o'clock in the
evening, when two of the long-separated
friends got Into a tight, and were arrested
and put Into the lock-up. Officer Lallue
had got but a little distance from the
lock-up, when ho heard yelling lu the
building and returned. He found the two
drummers, who had been placed lu the
same cell, lighting like good fellows. Tho
larger of the two seemed to have it all

The hot weather pa-dictions for Sep
tember will be verified, It tho month con
tluues as the tlrst two days have been.
Yesterday was apparently one of the hot
test days ol this season. Wu say appa
rently, because the thermometer did not
mark so high a temperature tit has on
other days, but the cool month that has
Just passed left us In a condition that
makes this unexpected heat unusually
oppressive. The dusty streets and lack
of breeze make the heat of the sun nt
midday still more unendurable. The
dullness that characterized the market at
our last report still prevails, and prices
are generally weak on leading commodi
ties, although we arc pleased to note
some Increase In tho volume of sale .
Flour is plenty, quiet and unchanged.
Hay Is plenty and dnll demand very
small. Corn Is plenty, dull aud lower.
Oats arc oveis'tocked and dull at 40o In
hulk on track, and 45c sacked and deliv
ered. Meal is plenty aud no sale; thu
same may be said of bran. The stock of
butter on hand Is too large lor the de
mand aud Is becoming damaged by the
hot weather. Fresh eggs sell readily,
but those ou hand a day or two arc neg
lected.
THE MAHKET.
TOur friends should bear in mind
that the prices here given are usually for
sales from first hands in round lots, lu
tilling orders and for broken lots It is nec
essary to charge an advance over these
tlgures.fMi

All grades arc plenty and thu market
rules heavy and dull. Prices arc un
changed but orders come In slowly aud
sellers would bo compelled to maku con
cessions to effect large sales. Transac

The market is a little overstocked for

7 4-5 Inches during the previous 24
hours.
The weather was hot enough yester
day to-writ flic most exacting. It was a

The Eekert came back from Mound
City yesterday with her new chimneys
on board. They will be placed lu post
tlon in a day or two.
The Nail City had two barges of iron
ore and will no doubt have to lay up at
New Albany, as there is not water
enough for her above that point. If so,
one of her pilots, Mr. Mike Kelly, will pay
his Cairo Irlcnds a short visit.
On Monday next the James D. Par
ker, Capt. Bob Wl, makes an excursion
trip to Cincinnati, carrying passengers
to the grent Industrial Exhibition and
return, at reduced rates. Those desiring
to visit thu exhibition should not fail to
take the Parker, as the trip will be most
enjoyable.
