goes for Lusk, culling him anything and
everything but a gentleman. Lusk claims
that an employe of Morgan's offloo at
tacked him in tho night time, with a pis
tol and slung shot, and but for tho assist
ance of friends would havo dono hint

CONDITION OF THE RIVERS.
Hera tho river continues swelling and so
far has raised over two feet with the pros,
pect of several feet moro wator. At Pitts
burg tho declino in tho rlvor continues.
At Cincinnati the rapid rise in tho Ohio
oes bravely on und also ut Loulsvillo
thcro it eight feet in the cuiinl and six
feet in tho chute. The Cumbland river is.
till rising with eight feet on Hurpeth"
shoals. Tho condition of tho Mississippi
is gotting very bid and tho boats aro hav
ing couslderublo trouble with tho sand
bers; thcro is about 0 feot in tho channel
and tho river it falling. It is a doploruble
fact that tho Ohio and Mississippi rivers
will not work conjointly with eacb other,
when ono Is rising .ho other will be fall
in:r. Tho stugo of water below hnro
remains very fair and bouts aro able to
leave hero with full cargos.
The Arkansas river contains three feet
water in tho channel, and falling slowly
Tbouecllnn in Rod river continues, and'
tho channel is getting low.
BUSINESS 'AND WEATHER.
Tho landing presented a lively and
business liko appearance throughout the
entire day, and considorablo amount of
freight was forwarded lo its destination.
Thcro Is plenty of freight on band, and
tho demand for roustabouts, deck bands and
laborves is good, and tbo wages aro fair
-ind thoro is no earthly oxcure for our city
being Infested with hundreds of idle and
lazy loafers.
Tho weather for tho past fow days has
been unfavorable for navigation, but yes
terday was a clear cold day. During
the closo of tho day, it cloudod up with
indications of a storm of some kinds. The
wcatber clerk certainly has a spite of some
kinds again this section ol the country.
MISCELLANEOUS MATTERS.
The Mallie Ragon left yestorday morn
Ing with a trip of stern-wheel boat freight
consisting of wheelbarrows, hay, oats, fur
nituro and sich like. On tho whcelbarrrws
sho recolvcs threo dollars per dozen.
An accident with lots of Jifo occurred at
tho Trade water coal mines on last Monif.
The track which runs to tho river wtfere
tho coal it dumped on tho coal barges
suddenly guvo way and an old man named
James Cardwell who happened to bo on
iho coal bargo was instantly killed. Work
was suspended for a couplo of days until
the dam iges were repaired.
Tho Great Republic after several days
of trials and tribulations in the river
between hero and St. Louis camo out with
it fair trip and put on the finishing touches
to her cargo here.
The Julia took on board tho cedar poles
brought out some tlmo ago by the John
Lumsdcn.
Tho Binmarck camo out with a good
trip and found plenty of froight here for
tho south.
Tho .Mohawk brought out a tow of
freight barges. She was aground some
time at Liberty Island.
