Early yesterday morning a little shanty
oeiir the Mississippi levee and Twelfth

fallen down, and. striking a little colored

Tho floral decorations for tho casket io
which the remains of Captain Hambletou
were laid werelurnished by Mr. J isepb
McCullough, of St. Louis, and were proba
bly the richest and most beautiful used for
any liko occasion. Tbe chief features of
thorn was the floral cythe and a sheath cf
wheat at the foot of the coffin, a cross
and crown at the centre, and the column
and harp mentioned elsewhere. The harp
was mounted on a pndestrial which bore
a suggestive inscription of pansies. There
wero a number of St. Lmtsaua in the coi
ege. The time is rapidly drawing near for

Valsutines are already making their

custom of sending little tokens of friend

andouuhtto be encouraged; but the habit
of a few to make it the means of showing
spite or anger is mean and narrow and ought
to 1)3 discourage. It you ctn t Bend a

"The education of girls'' is a subject
that mothers aro in no dangar of consider
ing Umcarufully. Io a lecture on this top
ic, Prof, Woodward of 8c. Louis, said truly
that the future of our country dopeuds ss
much upon the girls as upon tho boys, and
he urges that In addition to tbe necessary
studies they shall bo taught tho use of the
needle, the pencil, the brush and of hand
tools. "Cut nut tho mule, take up the
useful studies and make our women strong,
sell-reliant, usoful women. Educate broad
and deeply; make them physicians. Let
them sit at the feet of our best teachers,
but let them not err as the men have, and
let their curiculum bo not m-relv omam nt
al." It is true, its the Professor says, that
thi terms are too lung, and tho lesions are
ton lung aud tiresome; the hours of study
are too long and there are too many sub
"Interviews, or Bright Bohemian," is a
briuht, sparkling comedy written by Mr.
Nobles, aud embodies true humor, amus'
ing dialogues and situations, catching the
audit nee at once and retaiuing its interest
throughout the entire presentation. At no
time does thu plot trespuss upon the prov
ince of improbability uud there is not a
ingle hue iu the entire piece which could
luve tho slightest tendency toward shock
ingtbe HonFilnlity of any oue. The cheeky
but ever gentlemanly, enterprising and
self-posscf-S'tl Bohemian is painted with
the pen of a mister whose inspiration is
evidently drawn from sctu d scenes wit
i)esed within the mysterious preciucts of
the editorial sanctum.
In tho Uoited St ites senate Tuesday

Two negro womeu had a lively tuseel

of them bad drunk the most. They were
both arrested and j tiled, and brought be

RIVERS AND HARBORS.
rKEPAIUNQ a BILL.
WASUlKOtoN, Jan. UO. The house com
mittee is making good progress with the
preparation of tho river and hubor bill
The bill will pmb iby appropriate about
$7,000,000 for contiuuing improvements;
of this amount $2,5000,000 will be aligned
t ) the Mississippi river. At least that is
the presuut intention ot the committee.
Cairo's prospects for a rich business
harvest next spring aro very flattering to
lay the least and thote has beeu a good
trade hero during the winter; but, In the
words of the Springfield R-gister, it is
puzzling many newspapers readers to ac
count for the languor in trade, decreasing
exchangos, andjocrcasing bankruptcies in
the country generally while the general
condition of the country is sound, and in
many respects apparently flourishing. The
trouble is not because tho conditions are
not good for prosperous trade, for they are.
There were good harvests last year, north
and south, nnd a large and wealthy immi
gration. The real cause for tho depression
in trade is that tbe floating wealth of the
country lias been reduced, and thot which
was productive capital has become fixed.
A thousand miles of railroad a month, at
$20,000 a mile could notbetm'dt without
reducing the floating wealth. This money
is not lost but it has become available
only as the roads produce profits, and
this many of the roads aro not yet ddng,
Again the heavy tarid'aod interne I revenue
taxation of the general government has
thrown vast sums of mon-y into tho vaults
of tho federal treasury where It lies idle;
tho large a'mnunt of money produced by
taxation lying iu state treasuries also takes
It out of trade; tho tariff besides has de
prived us of our shipping and deceased our
foreign trade. The result has been a low
ering of prices which disposes tradesmen
to lay iu stocks that uii.'lit have- to be Bold
for less than thoy c ist ; aud what is worse
these causes have produced an inability or
indisposl'ion on tbe pait of consumers to
buy liberally. It becomes the duty of the
people's representatives in congres and iu
tho legislatures of the state, therefore, to
reduce tuition, and thus lighten tho bur
b -ns of tbe people. If this is done trade
will again become brisk and business men
