Ilusincss on tho Levee, quiet. Wo
would remark jtiHt hero, that Cairo, like
other cities, is subject to n lull in business,
about this limn of tho year, whlcli invaria
bly continues for n month or six weeks.
On tho whole, howover, it is a matter of
congratulation, that tho general briskness
of trado will average favorably with Unit
of uny preceding year, and still more so,
with any rlv:r port nbovo or bolow. Tho
stupid 'Sun' endeavors to make capital nut
of the faithful lepor. of buiincs here, but
this attempt only draws down ridicule
upon bis obtuso head. The Hi'i.lkti.v

of tho business Mr. W. is doing, nnd tho
largo amount of room his trade require',
wo may mention that tho dimensions of tho
now storo aro 12" feet by 25 feet. Uase.
mcnt Is 11 feet in height; first story, 13
feet, second story, VI leet. Tho building
ho now occupies is to bo fitted up for an

and track in tho center, so that in unload
ing from tho cars or loading on thorn
tho truck will movo from or to tho rail
road track with its load, on a level tailwuy

Woodward is tho most oxtensivo iron

extensive business in tho iron lino. Tho
counters, shelves, etc., will bo removed,
nnd no obstructions from front to rear bo
in tho way. All will bo completed, it is
expected, by tho first of September.
