Tho good steamer St. Joseph will leavo
at 10 o'clock this ovening for St. Louis
and all way points. She is an anchor

CONDITION OF TOE RIVERS.
The Ohio at this point is still on the
decline. At Pittsburg tho river is steadily
falling. Tho Ohio river is falling from
Cincinnati to its mouth. No chango for
the better in tho Mississippi river. It is
still on a steadily decline, and the channel
does cut out enough to do any good
Thero is still 0 feet at Greenfield's.
BUSINESS AND WEATHER.
The transactions on the levee yesterday
in the freight line were heavy. Tonnage
was plenty, also freight, and the shipments
to tbo south was large.
The weather was clear, and the ntinosp
bore was delightful. Rain is badly ncod-
ed to fill up tbe empty cisterns.
The Belle St. Louis got out at 8 o'clock
yesterday. She was lightened off Green
field's by the Tyrone after about fifteen
hours hard work.
The Grand Tower pulled at her, but her
spars tripped, and left her harder aground
than ever one of tho spars went through
the hurricane roof of tho Grand Tower
tearing away a portion of it. She was
aground six hours. She is not well adopt
ed to this state of tho river.
Tho James Howard loaded to only eight
feet. She will stop here on ber return
and load back for New Orleans. Had
thero beon sufficient water bolow here
she could havo found lrelght enough to
havo loaded her flat down.
Tho Capital City was nearly flying
light. Sho added a few tons St. Louis
freight and somo poople. Part of the
crow of tho Pauline Carroll went up on
Tho Bee Is duo from New Orleans this
morning. Sho will return from hero with
tho barges that the Kellogg is bringing
out. Tbe Kollogg will go back to St.
Louis with tho tow tbo Bco brings up.
Tbe Crescent City was detained trans
ferlng freight and filling up her half
loaded barges. She got away last night
with fivo freighted barges.
Tho Abort is still at work on tho Black
Hawk and it is undoubtedly tbe toughest
job she has got hold of this season, but ber
officers are determined not to give it up,
buttako it up.
