There is a small rise at Evnnsville, but
if our predictions nro right it will bo of
short duration. At St. Louis the river is
rising at tho rate of eiiven inches a week.
Tho channel is 11 little improved, but is 11
long way from being in 11 decent condi
tion, and boats still havo their little mis

rise in the Ohio. Still, boats leaving hero

At PitHnirg the river is on u stand, but
tho prospects for 1111 early riso are good.
At Cincinnati tho nvor is rising n little.
