will irlvo the .natter their attention and
devhu Mime means to oercome the dllll
cultv. Levee street as It now stands. Is not
near wide enough to accommodate xne irai

ciently, the next best thing would be to havo
tho 1. (J. R. R. to moc their iimldo track to
the other sido or the street. This
would give room lor two or three drays,
to run abreast on the portion of the street
next to the sidewalk, and ob late tho ne
cessity of running on the sidewalks, which
with the present space or six or eight leet
cannot be avoided. The freight cars could
be allowed to remain on thu Insldo track,
tho railroad iflng the outside fur thu pur
poo the Insldo track Is now ucd. Tho
space that will be occupied by the outside
track, ir this change is made, will be used
more than the space now occupied by the

mole room next to the sidewalks will per
mit drays to load and unload without being
an Inconvenience to anybody. The tracks
as they now stand arc a detriment to the

V,..i. it not for tho business that Is done on

Is an axiom acknowledged by every one.

MISCELLANEOUS MATTERS.
Thu lumbor burgo which tho Eckert
raised ut Belmont sunk again soon after
sho left it, und will probably havo to be
wrecked und tho lumber transferred to an
other barge, as it is thought that a portion
of tho bottom plank is brokon.
Hiram Hill, tho sumnurino diver, leu
with his armor to recover the iron portion
of tho Paducah nnd Elizabothtown rail
road bridge, which was knocked down
during tho lata high water. It is about
20 miles abovo tho mouth of tho Tennes-
seo river and lies in 20 feet water.
Tho Curaelia has entered thu Cairo and
Louisville trade during low water. Sho
brought out C50 bbls potatoes, 60 casks
ot meat nnd a few tons of miscellaneous
freight. Tho Minncola had two barges
loaded with iron oro for tho Ohio river,
Tho Idlowlld had a fair rushipping trip
and u number of people.
Another boat tha been tunk by Wet
zcl's wing dam. Tho tow boat Alico
Brown, while attempting to pass tho falls,
was caught und curried ugaliut tho chain
nnd sunk in 0 feet of water. Sho has been
raised, and is nt Pottland. That dam is
whut might bo called n d n nuisance, and
should bo dono away with. It was built
for tho purposo of conscntrating the
water in tho channel, but about all it has
done has been to sink boats. Pilots say
that the current is so strong that a boat
cannot handio herself, and the majority of
tbem aro in fuvor of its removal.
About 200 wagons of all kinds and colors
ard strewed along tho loveo waiting ship
