of nvoldlng such nn unpleasant catas

speedily rc-ntiimato tho hair nnd prevent
it from falling out. liosides that, this in

tho Hair nourishes nnd stimulates its
young nnd tendor libers, removes all
obstacles to their growth in the shape of

The Municipal Canvas. Tho np
proaching contest for municipal oflicos
will bo n peculiar scrub raco if it is per

all probability n concerted effort of citi
zens who havotha woltaro of Ciiro roally

That old element In our citv politics
which is always holding back, al ways find

And so we go.
Hut something ought to bo done. Tlio
wolfaro of tho cily demands that tho good

Tlio LansJon administration deserves woll
of tho public. II should bo continued if
possible, so that it may havo an oppor
tunity to moro fully duvulopo to consum

It would bo woll, therefore, if tho electors
should say to tho present city ollicorg :
" Well dono, good and faithful servants;

and bclmvo bolter next year than you did

is a good enough ticket for this year I

disappeared, and tho river Is now clear
from hero to Now Orleans. Yesterday
tho ice-bound boats all steamed up to this
city, nnd tho wharf proscntod a lively
and natural appearance. The resumption
of navigation has put new life into the
market, and heavy transations in nil de
partmcnls of trado wero tho order to
day. Everything sells readily, but the
market is almost hire in consequence of
light receipts. Tho market is poorly
supplied with choice hay, higher grades of
Hour and grain, and as thoro Is a fair pro.
pect of abrisk trado with rates in favor of
shippers, correspondents nro recomended
to forward choice grades of hay, flour and
grain wiinoui iioiav. hales ol hay wero
mado to-day, at S20 for good mixed
which is nn outside figure, moro than it
would havo brought, if the market hud
been well supplied.
Bates of freight urc very unsettled. An
early reduction is anticipated.
