There is a smaller number ot crimi

Cairo, Ills., Dec. 21.
The condition of the market here It
neither encouraging to tho shipper or
merchant. The embargo placed on the
movement of freights, occasioned by the
Ice gorges in the Ohio and Mississippi
rivers and the consequent low staire of
water In tho Mississippi south of" this
port, works an especial hardship on
Cairo commission merchants. Tho rail
roads leading South aro all receiving
freight faster than they can send It for
ward, there being no less than three hun
dred cars on the track this morning
awaiting shipment south. Itiyer traffic
Is practically "played out" for the present
or until there is a rise in the river. The
river south of Cairo is very low
and all day to-day uii almosf
solid mass of ico has been
moving past this city. Stcamboatmen
cannot be induced to risk the dangers of
an attempt to get out on the present
stage, preferring to lay at the bank nnd
await a rise in the river.
With anything like adequa e ship
ping facilities the Cairo mar
ket would be active. The de
mand for nil staple articles Is good, but
owing to U13 lack of tonnage, both by
rail and river, the market Is practically
at a stand still.
There ia yet a great scarcity of all tho
lower grades of fiour, with an increasing
demand at advanced prices. The order
trade Is or would be excellent if there
was shipping facilities. What is true o
thc Hour market is also true of the hay
and oats market. There is a good de
mand for both articles, but ow ing to the
lack of tonnage for shipping, merchants
can do nothing; and it is (eared this con
dition of allairs w ill net be improved un
der a week or ten days. There s a good
supply of corn on the market, with no
demand. Meal Is in lair supply with
only a moderate demand. Prices
are unchanged. Bran Is plenty
and dull. There is not much demand
for dressed meats. There is a fair supply
on the market. Butter is plenty and dull
sale. The market is overstocked, and
prlce3 arc declining. 'There Is a fair sup
ply of eggs on the market, and prices are
a little lower. Poultry Is plenty and
hard to dispose of. Chickens, especially
young chickens, are not wanted, for they
cannot be sold at all. Turkeys are in
moderate supply, but there is no active
demand tor them. Potatoes nre scarce
and wanted. Came is plenty and slow
sale. Apples are In moderate sunnlv
with only a light demand.

that the prices here given nre only for
