Thu following Is the report of tlio con
dition of the rivers at the places named
f or thu 24 hours ending at 3:40 yesterday
condition of rivers.
Tho heavy ico continues coining out of
tho Ohio and was running heavier than
tho day beforo. There Is scarcely any cur
rent in the riverand tho ico hardly moves
Yesterday morning tho ico came to
Htnnd still opposite Wilson's boat, storn and
win broken up by tho tugs Montauk and
Cache. It is said by some, that it was fro
zen entirely ncross the river, but wo are
of tho opinion that owing to the
oro tho water lias been forced back
and Is nuarly back water now, and tho
ico not having anything to push it
forward, it stoppml for a few minutes of Its
own accord. Tlio ice from tlio Mississippi
is not as heavy as heretofore and is coming
out 111 less quantities, alio UDIo was
rising slowly yesterday nnd is probably
on 11 stand-still this morning. Since thu
irorgo formed tho river lias risen about
fuur feet. Tlio upper Ohio remains closed
ns tight as can well bq and navigation is a
thing ot tho past. Tho Mississippi is woll
packed in ice and likely to keep cool for
long time. Well, " wo know h.iw it
ourselves," now, nnd tho only thing to bo
dono is to keep cool and let her go by
(tho Ico wo mean.)
BUSINESS AND WKATHER.
Business on tho landing yesterday was
rather on the quiet ordor und tho wharf
boats prcsonted a dosortcd appearance,
There was one boat loading for tho south

she leaves here. Tako it all in all yester
day was a dull dny on tho rivor.
Tlio weather was not as cold yesterday

propect of Its becoming warmer; but
what is tho use to undertake, to foretell
tho weather when it has becomo so fickle
It was reported yesterday that tho

self out of tho gorgo and tho prospects for
