In shipmentT s of ,ho'its and shoo, Ht. Louis again hIads tho list, with Chicago "spond, while Now York has fallon bask to thlrd, Now Orleans coming up to fourth and Philadelphia to fifth. The fall of the rain in Indiia will be heard with grateful hearts all around the world. There will be no famine next year in Northern India, at least, and this is good news to all mankind. The exports of petroleum thus far from Philadelp la this year are about 15,000,000 gal lons less than they were at this time a twelve tmonth ago. Last year the petroleum exports from that city amounted to 65,831,610 gallons. Fe steamer Future City, from St. Louis fth four barges In tow, will arrive about We.nesday evening. Her cargo consists of ,D,819 bushe'ls corn n bulk, also 12,155 pa.k es Western produce and sundry merchan The following balances were in the United States treasury on the 13th inst.: Currency §16,e08,516; special fund for thereodenption of ractlonal ourrency, $H,515,468; special deposit of legal tenders for the redemption of certifl ,a[tes of deposit, 44 e 20j000; coin (including $MM81,00 In coin certificates), $i11,13,55r4; outstanding legal tenders, $3R5,.914,0132. In reply to many inquiries the Solicitor of the Treasury hlies issued a circular stating that it is unlawful to use photographs of united States currency and national bank nutes for advertising cards; and further, that metal tokens, more or less in likeness of coin, can not he used for such purpose. The solicitor adds that no letters patent were ever issued for what is called "grenback advertising," and if letters iopyriglt have ever been grant ed it was done inadvertently, and they are illegal and void. The ECening Wis'onsin states that the re ceipts of wheat at Milwaukee for the month of September were the largest ever known in a single month in the history of that city, and larger than any primary wheat market In the world, 'The receipts amount to over 5,000,000 bushels1 agregating 5.312,964. In the last week of July, when it was manifest that the Wlheat crop of the Northwest would be a very large one, it was estimnated that the Septem ber receipts at Milwaukee would reach 4,000, 000 bushels; but not the most sanguine could imagine that they would exceed 5,000,000 bushels, New lreaA Crusats are lUsed in Paris. IBaltimore Amnurican.l "What btcomes of the old moons ? What becomes of the old crusts of bread in Paris ?" asks the Fitero, and then tells of their trans formations. I he hbouketner en vieu.r freely translated, "baker of tlhe old," utilizes the aieces of dry, darmaged and abandoned bread. He gathers the crusts in boardlng-houses onivents and hotels. These morsels, oovered with sand, stained with ink and often picked from heaps of refuse. are sold by servants to the "baker of old," who turns them into new preparations. The merchandise is first care ully sorted out. The fragments which are judged to be still in presentable condition are dried In an oven and forr croulten ant ol, which are usil up, in sup at low ('lass restau rants. Almost all i4m loonge-shaped crusts served in dishes of vegetables have this ori gin. The crumbs and defective crusts are poundled in a mortar until they lc''oine a white paste, which butchers use to adorn cut lets. All the material that appears absolute ly lncapable of further service is then roasted reduced to charcoal, ground into powder, and by the addition of a few drops of essence of mint, is converted into a tooth paste. Much Is one of the lmetarniorphoses of Parisian in dustry. The Natlonal Water Way. Ine river inmprovement ecinvention at St. Paul adopted, among other resoluition, one denmandin that "in all approipriations for Internal Improvements hereafter made by tongress. the Mississippi river shall be kept p-rominent as a dlistinetively national object of equal if not paramount importance to all others." This demand for the nationalization of the great river is very reasonable; it is en forced by some striking facts. The dlistance from tt. Paul to New Orleans is salhot 19055 miles; yet both cities are on the banks ef the Misslss lppi river, and both were re'prese'nted by delegates in the conventionl. There are ten Stat's abutting on the great river viz: Minnersta, with a population of r50,0o0; Wisconsin. with a pop ulation of 1,200 (,10; Iowa with a population of 1,1800,000; illinois, with a population of 2,500,000; Missouri, with a population of 1,1H0(, 000; Kentucky, with 1,400o 1); Tennesstte, with 1,300,0m0; Arkansas, with r50,tie0; Mis sissippi, with 9100,0.l, anli Louisiana with 8er, 000--making an aggregate population of over 121000,000. And this dois not inelode Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Kansas, NeIbraska, Texas and Alabama, also interested to a large extent in the navigation of the stream. If all this is not enough to impart national dignity awnl inportance toe the Mississippi river, it would fe diilicult to tell what more is nleeded. On this subject the Viekshur IlHrrrld says: Looked at in a national point of view the work ought to ie i done, llt not ione ,dollar ought to be approprintted for it until other en terprises of greater national impllortan(ce are secured. The conmpletion of this enterprise would imprnrove the country between St. Louis and St. ]'aul very much, ibut from St Louis to New ()rlenns there is nio pressing necessity for it.

I Slie a t the mint od raed eii - is 75 oente, and is lImited to one word. 8'nne of our readers may think that one word can be of little use, but if properly handled it may convey as much information as an ordi nary sentence. This can be effected by the method called " packing." Let us suppose that a New York banking house arranges with its London correspondent a vocabulary of words, each of which has a specific meaning. 'The nondon house may telegraph for in stance, the word "thunder," and the Now Yorkers, by reference to their tbook, will find the meaning of "thunder" to be, "the Bank of England has advanced its rate of Interest to 3 per cent," All this, which at long rate would cost $9 75, is obtained for a more trifle, and the system certainly shows great ingenuity. The cable cyphers, as these are called, are very numerous and are in charge of a very expert operator. The difference in time between New York and London is a cu rious feature In ocean telegraphy. The Lon don banker is in the full swellof trafflo when the New York agent is fIrst thinking of "getting up." At normon the London markets are cabled to this city, where they arrive at 7 o'clock in the morning of the same day. The London agentof the New York press telegraphn the most important news issued In the London aNnen at 6ii o'clock In the morning. It reaches here at 1 o'clock thie same morning, just in time to be inserted in the New York journals, whose readers have the same matter that the Londoner digests with his breakfast. This is doing a little better than even "taking time by the forelock." It is getting ahead of him in a prodigious manner. -4040 - FINANCIAL AND CO .ERICIAL. MIOWETARY.
