plying between Cairo and Mound City as a
daily packet, lias withdrawn from tha trade,
imply becauso there was not sufficient
patronage to sustain her. Her daily visit
will be missed, but Capt. Hamblcton, her
owner, is not to blame for it.
Ycbturday was cool and clear, and, du
ring the forenoon, not a single steamer ar
rived todisturb thomonotomy which reign
The Silverthora left early yesterday
morning with a largo lot of corn for B. S.
Rhea, of Nashville.
An interesting little fight occurred on
the levee yesterday morning between two
"young coona." The occasion of the dif
ficulty we were unablo to ascertain, but
will say that for frescoing tho "co)os" in
question seemed to understand their busi
ness as split lips, mutilated cars, bloodbhot
eyes was the result of the melee.
Tbe B. 8. Rhea, from Nashville, will re
port here to morrow night.
The Granite State, from Memphis, W.
C. Ticlienor, chief of ceremonies, and the
affable Bob McCoy in the office. The
State will paw up this morning for Cin
cinnati. The Fannie Tatum, from St. Louis, will
land here this morning for Paducah and
Ewald's iron works. She will receive a lot
of iron for tbe "Future Great." J. B. Con
Tbe Missouri river, so says a Fort Bentnn
correspondent, is lower than it has ever
been known to be for the last 20 years.
The Buckeye State, for Pittsbursh, is
due to day from St. Louis. James Eirker,
Capt. Bob Wise, with his popular J as.
V. Gaff, for Memphis to-morrow. Passen
gers going south will find the Gaff a pleas
ant boat to travel on.
The Gus Fowler, from Paducah, bad an
excellent passenger trip y vterday, and left
on her return trip with some thirty cabin
passengers for Metropolis and Paducah.
The W. P. Ualliday left for New Orleans
last evening after adding some twenty tons
ot freight here. Beck Jolly is her popular
chief, andO. G.Cutes her arUable purser.
Ciipt. Brack Owen, of Paducah, was in
Ihe 'city yesterday for the purpose of tracing
up some 2000 staves which ho claims were
stolen from him by parties at Joppa, 111.,
32 miles above here on the Ohio. He siys
lie has found out to his sitisfaction who
tbe parties are, and will enter proceedings
to recover the staves or other value.
Tho steamer City of Cairo arrived last
evening at 8 o'clock, and her appearance
was hailed with enthusiam. Several guns
were fired in honor of her arrival, and we
might say that thousands of people throng
ed the levee as she steamed into port. As
soon as she passed out of the Mississippi
and turned her head up the Ohio the fl tsh
of her electric light threw its rays (pon the
citizens of Cairo, whereupon a grand and
universal expression seemed to beam upon
the countenance of our citixens which said
"there Comes our pot." The rush when
sho landed was indescribable in ono com
mon mass regardless of color, race or as
sociation, every body was curious to see tbe
"c'ity of Cairo." After patiently waiting
to seo tho result of the public inspection,
I, river reporter, went on board, and
through the kindness of Captain Vickers
received tho following intelligence in re
gard to the City of Cairo: Her dimensions
are 280 feet length, beam 44 feet, 9. foot
hold, five steel boilers 8 i feet long, 20
inches circumflex. Her cabin is a porsgnn
ot excellence and beauty and furnished in
the most modern and elegant stylo. After
the masses of tho curious had retirod from
the grtnd saloon, sonio of Cairo's most
beautiful ladies and gallant gentlemen
were cordially entertained by Capt. Vick
ers and other officers of his staff, aud mus
ic, dancing and feasting entertained tho
balance of the night until the woo email
hours of morn, when swcot nature proclaim
ed that it was time tor repose. In conclu
sion we will say that we only played tho role
of spectator, until the hour of supper waa
announced, and in that particular depart
ment we modestly but dutifully filled our
part of the contract. List night will long
live green in the minds of our citizens and
wo sincerely hope that the future of the
beautiful steamer, named in honor of Cairo
"may live long and prospor.M

A Baptist Minister's Experience.
I am a Biptist minister, and before t
even thought of being a clergyman, I grad
uated in medicine, but let t a lucrative prac
tice for my present profession, 40 years ago;
1 was tor many years a suliercrtroni quinsy r
"Thomas' Eclectric Oil cured me." I waa
also troubled with honrseness, and Thomas'
Eclectric Oil always relieved me. My wife
and child bad diphtheria, and "Tliouion'
Eclectric Oil cured them," and if taken In'
timo it will euro seven timesout of ten. X nra
confident it is a euro for tho most-olwtitmtei'
cold or cough, nnd if any ono will take a'
small teaspoon and half fill it with tho Oil,'
nnd then place the end of the spoon in onn
nostril and draw the Oil out of the spoon
into tho head by sniffing as hard as they
can, until the Oil falls over into tho throat,
and practice thatlwico a week, I don t care
how offensive their hond may be, it wilt
clean it out and cure their catarrh. For
deafuess and earache lthas dono wonders to'
my certain knowlodgo. It is tho only
medicine dubbed patent medicine that I
have ever fult liko recommending, and I ani
very anxious to seo it in every place, for I
tell you that I would not be without it in my
houso for any consideration. I am now
suffering with a pain like rliotimatlsm ia
my right limb, nnd nothing relieves mo liko
Thomas' Eclectric Oil.
