a half Inches during the previous twenty
four If urs At six o'clock last nigh, it
Btood at about forty seven and a half
feet. During the psme time a rise of three
feet one inch was record d at Chattanooga,
one fait ten inches at Cincinnati, three
inthesnt Louisville, two feet ten inches
at Nashville and eleven inches at St. Louis.
This shows considerable of a falling off of
the rate at which the rivers have been ris:ni
at these points for several days back, ex
cepting at St. Louis, where the rise was
greater. It is probable, therefor, that the
rise will soon cease entirely.

that great power, to which opinions, es

eastern merchant argu this way: '"I de
