l or the last two or three dayi tiio ,
weather has been mild and pleasant.
Witli lbs warmer weather came a riso in
the Ohio river, and a general break-tip ot
the ice gorges. The destruction ot steam
boat property at points along the upper
Ohio has been enormous, being variously
estimated at from one to two mil
lions of dollars. J-'or the last
twenty-four hours the heaviest
Ice ever seen in the Ohio river nt this
point has been floating by the city, and
as a consequence mo ferryboats an J
transfer steamers have been unable to
leave their harbors. Nearly all the
steamers that were at tho landing on
Wednesday when the ice began to run
out heavy, left the wharf to seek safer
quarters in the Mississippi river back ol
the city. So far no damage lnti been
done to shipping here, and it is believed
the danger Is about over. K ites bv river,

Never within the memory of the

seen in the Ohio river at this point as
that which floated down Wednesday
night, yesterday and last night. Though
the ice was broken into small pieces, it
was so closely jammed together as to
form an apparently solid mas from
shore to shore, and was a sight to be seen
but once in many years in this part of
the country. No damage was done to

A Temperance War.
The good people of the Ir.tle town oj
I llin are just now agitated over the
quolion of license or no license. Joe
Taprich wanted to sell liquor, but the
temperance people said no. Now It has
been proposed to submit the question to
a vote of the people of the town, and
both sides arc working hard for success.
Al.PcBauu is against license, not be
cause be is a temperance man but be
cause he don't like Taprich. Joe don't
like At., but wants him on his side in
this tight, and A I. will bo on his side if
Jot; will use the right kind ot bait to
catch him. Joe knows w hat kind of bait
it takes to catch PeBaun.
The Merry Dn ol Old.
In reading of the middle ages one is
struck by the accounts given ol feats of
strength, etc., of the life actors ot those
times. The suits of armor worn, would
certainly indicate the possession ot
greater physical strength than is devel
oped by men in these latter days. What
wrought the change? Men lived in the
merry days a more out-door life than
this advanced civilization of ours can af
ford. There is a greater consumption of
brain matter, and that increased demand
on mental and physical power necessi
tates the use of a pure vegetable stimu
lant tonic, such as the Home Stomach
Thrown From a Ladder.

his absence the mule became restless, and
began moving about and in so doing the

A kind of a thaw ycsleruay, and tho
urn seemed to favor the same Early in
the morning the levee was visited by
many spectators, wishing to view the
Ohio covered with Immense Held of
floating ice. The sight was truly grand
for as far as the naked eye could observe,
the ice held complete sway,
As it parsed, a null sound
accompanied it, and each
piece seemed endeavoring to pass the
other as it it was but too anxious to visit
a wanner climate where it might wipe
out its existence. All day the swift
current earrled this mighty weight and
threatened destruction to everything
w ithin its reach In the morning the
ferry boat belonging to Mr. Vernon camo
in sight, having been taken from its
mooring by the ice. After a little work
it was loaded on the other side by the
Three States. Many li t boats and old
wrecks sped swiftly by alter taking
view ol" our city, only to be rescued after
reaching the sunny south The ferry
boat Nelly Thomas was sold for $150 to

From the Louisville Cmtrirr-Juurnal :
"F'or thirry-slx doys the Ohio has been
calmly sleeping in its'littlo bed,' its head
resting upon the pillow ol commerce, and
its feet wrapt up in the blankets of trade.
Old winter covered it over with Its quilts
and counterpanes of ice and snow, and
left it, as it were, blissful in silent
repose. A change came o'er the
spirit of its dreams and it
awoke. It bosom swelled with such
power as to bid navigation smile in hope
and kiss its eyelids open from its long
and lonely sleep. 1 1 burt from
beneath its icy coverings, took
tho pillow of commerce in one hand,
the blankets of trade in the other ami

that the sleep Is oyer and the Ohio is on
