had I not been scared oil' by the evident

seme of duty to my children and the ris

though I do so with fear and ttembllng.

words to "Country School :" My dear

nography, is placed within your grasp.
Why, It docs not even pay to leach the
common studies. Witness, the small sal

Kogers and .Miss Thompson, who, al.
through giving their whole time, combin

but it will be or even more

comparatively underMand It, so within a
year (like phonography, our Cairo pupils
can of course master It in that period)
our children will be experts iu uu almost

our walls with chromos of homo manu

The weather Is cloudy and threaten
ing. The Arlington Irom St. Louis had a
very nice trip for Pittsburg yesterday.
The C. II. Church added seveialhbds
tobacco and sotnu other freight here yes
terday, and his a very fair cargo in quan
tity lor the South.
The Mlsinaik left St. Louis at 3
o'clock evening before lal, nud arrived
here at D o'clock yesterday morning
with a very good cargo. She found
some freight hero, hut not enough to till
out.
The Uermitda brought 5t hogsheads
or tobacco for New Orleans, 21 sacks or
millet t seed ami 23 tons of pig Iron. She
had also a good lot of freight for Pa-
ducah, nud reports business Improving
along the Cumberland river.
A boat drawing 17 feet can now go
through F.ad'f Jetties at south pass and
the channel is deepening constantly.
More tlinu tills, tlie current ol the sea
carries away the sediment that Is carried
outoftlioldlio.sand the depth or wnter
beyond thu old bar is deepening Instead
ot diminishing. This result Is something
better than was expected by those who
were most sanguine of the enterprise or
Capt. Had.
This river last evening wasSt feet I -t-S
Inches ou the gauge, having risen 1 1 5
Inches during the past 21 hour. The
Tennessee, Cumberland, Missouri and u-
pcr.Mlssl-siiM.il rivers are rising slightly,
and itlsprobabie wewlll havo more. water
here, before another decline sets lu. The
sewers have been closed once a month this
year so far, and II look now as though
this monthly operation will have to be
continued.
