6 i ndayJ1okni.no. March 12, 1*71. 1
Weather, Business, etc.—Y esterday was
a disagreeable day. In the morning it was
rainy and sultry, but toward noon it cleared
otf, ami the sun shone forth quite, bril
liantly. In fact, it was very warm in tlie
evening, aud occasionally slight showers of
rain fell. Business on the landiug was
brisk, though nut so much so as was antici
pated. The rain prevented a number of
steamers from receiving their engaged
freights, and consequently several of those
that were announced to leave laid over
until Monday. Among the arrivals were
the Carrie Converse, from Red river, with a
good trip of cotton; Wild Wagoner, from
Natchez, with a fair trip; St. John, from
Baton Rouge, with a cargo of sugar, etc.
The Henry Ames, from St. Louis, came iu
deeply laden with a general assortment of
W i-stern produce, and had also some pas
sengers. The Jennie Howell had a mod
erate trip.
The departures were tlie Belie of Alton,
with light trip, to Shreveport; Susie Silver,
with considerable sugar and miscellaneous
freight, to the iron pile tor railroad iron;
Texas, for Red river, with fair cargo; Com
monwealth, to St. lands, with good trip;
Bannock City, to lower coast, well laden;
Natchez, to Vicksburg, and Wild Wagoner,
to Natchez, with usual amount of freight.
The lb L. Hodge was lightly laden.
The May Lowry for Jefferson, Leasie
Taylor for Opelousas, Ozark for Bayou
Macon, Wauiiita for Pittsburg, and Gov
ernor Allen forCauiden were all moderately
laden. The last week was much more brisk
iu levee business tliau tlie preceding one.
and tlie prospects for the incoming week
are very good. The l iver here continues to
rise, and the upper rivers are all reported
as swelling gradually. Rates ot freight are
unchanged and firm.
'I be steamer Commonwealth, which ar
rived on last Friday, discharged her cargo,
and took on hoard another one. ot nearly
like siz.e, iu the small space ot thirty-live
hours.
The immense steamer. Janies Howard,
left tlie wharf last evening fertile iron pile,
whither slie goes to take on the small amount
of 1890 bars of railroad iron for St. Louis.
She has also engagements for 2000 sacks of
salt, and 120*1 boxes of Havana sugar, all of
which she "ill take on board before return
ing to the wharf to receive her regular cargo
for Sr. Louis. "It aiu't much of u day for
loading, neither," as Captain B. Kush
l'ogram remarks. The Howard leaves Mon
day at 51'. M.
The Mohawk and barges, of the .Missis
sippi Valiev Transportation Company's line,
will arrive'this morning with an immense
tow of freight from St. Louis. Among the
items of the. Mohawk tow are 11.94.3 barrels
of flour, 244 half barrels of flour. 2605 sacks
of oats. 1275 saeksof bran, 18,000 packages
of miscellaneous produce and other freights,
40,tio0 bushels of corn in bulk, beside 1200
tons of ice. The Mohawk is one of the
staunchest aud most reliable of the com
pany's boats, and this "blue ribbon" tow
which site now brings to port is the proof of
her po wer. The cargo which she will de
liver at this port will amount to full 5000
tons. The Moliawk will leave this evening
on return trip, with a full cargo of up river
freight, which Agent Burdeau has already
had loaded on barges.
Hon. George II. Rea, of Missouri, Presi
dent of the Mississippi Valley Transporta
tion Company, between St. Louis aud New
Orleans, ami one of the most energetic and
enterprising men of the age, leaves for Ins
home in St. Louis to-inorrow. For the past
in,.nth or so Mr. Rea lias been sojourning in
our city on a visit of business connected
with his line of towboats. During his stay
here he lias perfected arrangements for the
transportation of freight liom foreign as
well as home ports, via bis barge line, which
will prove of incalculable benefit to tlie
trade of New Orleans.
Air. Rea, though a resident of St. Louis,
is also deeply concerned in the welfare of
New Orleans. He has, through his energy
and business tact, au<l by his management
and perfection of the barge system of trans
portation, done more toward the enlarge
ment of the New Orleans trade by the re
duction of freight rates, anti by moving
grain in bulk, than any corporation or indi
vidual enterprise ever iu existence. He has
now on hand contracts for railroad iron,
granite, anthracite coal, etc., which will
■give employment to many steamers outside
of his barge line. Ho has also perfected ar
rangements with the Red River Packet
Company, whereby tlie Mississippi Valley
Transportation Company will give through
bills ol'lading from St. Louis to points on Rial
river at reduced rates. Mr. Rea will return to
New Orleans in April, and in the meantime
our citizens can depend up >u the fact that
he will be on the lookout lor their interests
as well as his own. We envy St. Louis in
the possession of such a citizen. Would
that New Orleans had a hundred like him.
Mr. Lu Kennctt left last evening on the
Ozark as second clerk.
The Mayflower telegraphs that she will
arrive this evening from Camden with
two thousand bales of cotton. Hurrah lor
the Mayflower.
The Post Boy will load iu the St. Louis
and New Orleans packet line for St. Louis,
ami will leave Tuesday, as we announced.
The St. John, for upper coast landings,
with Captain Greathouse in command, will
leave to-day at 10 A. M.
Our readers have already been informed
by telegraph ot the terrible tornado which
visited"st. Louis last Wednesday, and of
the damage to property. From the St. Louis
Democrat, of the ninth, we learn ot the fol
lowing damages done to the steamboats:
< )ne of our reporters liad himself conveyed
by the quickest route to the loot of Lesper
anee street and the vicinity of the sectional
docks, fearing that it hud struck there vio
lently. It had; but, fortunately, few steam
ers were there.
The Walter B. Dance had her chimneys
toppled overboard; tho top of the barber
shop parted company, aud the whole cabin
was displaced lour inches. The stern-line
of the Dance parted, otherwise she would
have been split into kindling wood.
Tl;e William J Lewis, an elegant boat,
brilliant in a new dress, provided her for
the Missouri river trade, and nearly ready
to load for her first trip of the season', parted
her lines. Her stem swung round, and she
suffered no injury.
The bridge boat Allen, hull of an old
steamer, went down the river out of sight.
The same fate befell the Rubicon, which bad,
but a few hours previously, been removed
from a locality where she would not have
felt the- severity of the gale. Several
barges and other inferior craft were dis
lodged at the same time, and went adrift.
% Opposite the foot ol^Chouteau avenue is
situated the "Pittsburg eoal dyke." The
ferry-boat America, which plies there, hail
her chimney and upper works blown down.
She was brought to this side of the river.
Her pilot, Richard Johnson, was very seri
ously hurt, aud had to be carried to the
vehicle wbioh conveyed him where surgical
aid could be .at once secured. His tongue
was nearly severed. It is said that three
teamsters' on the boat also received in
juries.
Further up the river we come, on the.
west bank, to fllie ferry wharf boat, and the
barge company's wliarf-boat, ail of which
felt the blow, but suffered no injury. The
Merchants' Southern wbarl-boat was saved
by her chains, mud the fact that the, steam
ers Yaeger and John Kyle lay outside of
and against her.
The New Orleans Packet Company's
wharfboat reeled aud lunged, parted most
of her lines, and swung out some distance,
to the utter consternation of the unsus
pecting j(ersons on board, but neither this
nor the steamer Olive Branch, alongside,
were hurt in the least,
Tlie tornado passed the Keokuk wharf
boat with a slight pressure, but rudely
jostled that of the Memphis Packet Com
pany, shoving it out a few yards.
lu bold relief, lying against tlie Illinois
shore, opposite tlie foot of Biddle street,
lies a badly wrecked steamer, the large
packet Mollie Able, which was to leave to
morrow for New Orleans, but must defer
that sort of business to another day. A
.visit to the Mollie Aide disclosed the fact
that lier chimneys are down, and her cabin
fearfully wrecked and twisted. Fortunately
there were but few persons on board, and
lto one was hurt. The damage to the boat
will! probably reach $6000.
James Jenkins, colored, was sent to jail
at St. Louis on the seventh, in default of
$1000 bond, for cutting Ben Dixon, a hand
on the City of Alton.
The Henry C. Yeager for this port, from
St. Louis, has au immense amount of flour
among her cargo. She. received part of the
flour direct from tlie cars, the railroad
ferryboat having been brought directly
alongside, and tlie flour rolled on board.
She has 1500 tons lor this port.
Dnrfee Sc. Peck^of Leavenworth, will run
four boats iu the mountain trade, the Nellie
Peek, E. II. Durfee, Far West and Ida
Rees.
The Mollie Moore is loading at Pittsburg
for St. Louis aud Missouri river.
The Far West is loading at Pittsburg for
Fort Benton.
