CONDITION OF THE RIVEItS. "
Here tbo river contlnuos to rise, which
It cnused by the cortra at Columbus.
Since tho gorge was formed the river has
risen about four feet: The' gorge Ii said
to extend as far up as Island No.-1, and Is
becoming longer ovcry hour. Thelcoln
tho Ohio was not at heavy as '.hat of Tuet-
day. At Paducah thero was no Ico run
ning yesterday, and it Is believed to te
gorged abovo Smitbland. Tho curront
has nearly played oul, and the Ico
goes by slowly dcjormlned to go at
far and do all the mlschlof It can. Tho
gorge lolow hero is a "big thing on Ice,
nnd resists all nttempts that are mad lo
Our port list resembles that of St. Louis
but It will only bo minus for a day or two
Tho forry boat continues lo mako her
trips and the harbor tugs run with ease.
Tho Ico In tho Mississippi comos down
"llko a thousand ofbrlek" and consider
able heavier than that In the Ohio.
BUSINESS AND WEATHER.
Notwithstanding tbo condition of the
river below hero, there were tow boat
loading for New Orleans, but they will not
leave port until tho gorge breaks.
The Intento cold weather continues and
is anything but agreeable The winter is
so far gone that wo were in hopes that we
would escape such cold weather and would
not bo compelled to report a gorge below
here. Our fond bodes have been blight
ed. Tcsterday tbo sun sbone brightly
during tbo day but the wind blew very
cold and ovory thing and every body look
ed frozen. How long such "doings" are
going to last we have no Idea.
Wo do not like to spoil a good story
but wo aro compelled to do it this time
in justice to our shippers. Tho Missouri'
Republican says. "The Mary Alice look in
to New Orleans from ibis port 4000 tons
freight including 72,600 bushels bulk
grain." That fellow ought to run for ooa
gress for ho has enough cheek to be a suc
cessful candidate. Tho truth of the story
is this: The Mary Alico did take into
New Orleans over 1000 tons freight but
only 1000 tons of it was from St. Louis
and that was brongbt out by three tow
boats and eiht barges and they were
nearlyone week on the way. Over 2000
tons went from tbi piece as the books of
bcr agent will show.
Tho le7ee Is lined with boatt,-om all
directions which are are waiting for tha
rivers to open. The majority of
them want to go to St. Louis but that is
entiroly out of the question now. Our
city is filled with stcamboatmtn of all
grades and it would ba but a minutes
job to sbip a crew.
It Is not yet decided whether Duke
Alexiswill go down on the Great Republic
or some other boat. The Republic cleared
for Mempuis on Tuesday morning and
would have been there before now had it
not been for the gorge below here. However
she may be able to get through In time for
