CONDITION OF THE RIVERS.
Tho river continues steady in Its decline
at this point, but It will not be any ur
priso If it should bo raising in a few dsys
for the rain and snow that fell yesterday
morning will no doubt set tho Cumber
land and Tennoseo rivers to rising, and
Uiey win rnuso the Ohio to swell.
I he Ohio aW0 us falls ns rcculnr as
can be nnd the channel n becoming to bo
troublesome. Tho water on tho falls at
Louisvillo is now so low Hint largo ideain
ors cannot ascend them. Rctween Cin
clnnati and Pittsburgh tho river is In a
bad condition, nnd every day makes it
moro so. I rom Evansvillo to hero the
channel is not very bnd a vet. Rolow
hero there is plenty of water. Tho Mis
sissippi remains in n terrible nlicht and
TTiow only navigablo for the lightest boats
and thoy have somo pretty tough times
coining out. Should the weather turn
very cold it would bo but a short tlmo
until it would bo blocked with ico ngain
llio depth of tho channel remains akjut
WEATHER AND HCHINES-.
Thursday night was about the worst on
record. A cold rain began to fall about
10 o'clock and continued until 1 a.m
when it turned to snowing and continued
until late yesterday morning putting the
levce-strcet and side walks In a most
nbominablo plight. A'estcrday tho scow
melted nnd oh Moses what a disagreeable
uay it was under foot.
