gence yesterday that in consequence
of a raise in the water at St. Paul,
the Pitttdmrgii, due down tomorrow,
would not tie up as anticipated, but
continue to run and would leave St.
Louis next Monday for St. Paul.
For some time past the river has
been very low, making it almost im
possible for b .als to do traflie. The
ncwit that the river was rising at St.
Paul yesterday, sent a thrill of jov
through the eatts of all obi river
men. and now the dark lines of care
have disappeared from their faces,
and beaming smiles are onVe more
freely given Th" Pittsburgh left

The Illinois weather bureau of the
department of agriculture makes the
following report for the week ending
The temperature of the past seven
days has been slightly below the nor
mal throughout the state; at Spring
Held the deficiency being over two
degrees daily. Several counties re
port light frost on the SOth, 31st and
1st. The correspondent at Alvin.
Vermillion county, reports heavy
frost on the 27th ultimo. Generally
clear weather prevailed during the
week, the amount of sunshine bein"-
obove tne average. According to the '
reports received at this office, there'
has been an entire absence of rain j
during the past week, this state of i
affairs having intensified the Ion"-'
continued drought. j

There has been but little change in j
the Condition nf prniw ilniMt,. f l.n '
past seven days. Most of the corn
is past that state where rain would
be beneficial. Some farmers have
commenced cutting their corn. The
damage from drought has been gen
eral, ami the injury from grasshop
pers has become more serious of late.
The Vermillion county correspond
ent says: "Heavy frost of the 27th,
did much damage to corn." How
ever there are indications of half a
crop. Thrashing is about com
pleted. The yield of oats will be
about 30 bushels per acre. Fall
plowing is being greatly retarded by
the drought, and what has been done,
cannot be properly prepared for
seeding until after a good rain.
Pastures arc almost completely dried
up, and badly needing rain. The
feeding of stock is becoming more
generalr Stock water is still very
scarce. The crop of clover seed will
be light. The yield of potatoes will
be small.' Harvesting of broom corn
continues. There is no improve
ment in the condition of fruit, grapes
being the most abundant. Gardens
are very poor. About the only gokl
rains would do now, is to revive the
pastures, put the ground in suitable
condition for plowing and to lav the
