River Matters.
J3 The river is almost entirely freeef ice, and Is ri
sing rapidly. The only arrival yeiterday was the E. JU
TP. IIU1, from New Orleans, and the only departure was
the steamer Aleonla, for Nashville. About 12 o'cleck on
Monday nlcht, a large quantity ef heavy Coating lee
passed down, same ot It peering over a foot above the
unaeeef the river. Itwai anppojedte be a portion ot
the broken gerge, below Xandolpb. But little business
wat done yetterdar, owing to the heavy rain, and the
bad condition ot the landing.

Island bar to permit her to cross.
EJ"The Ingomtr will depart this evening for New Or

X3T The B. R. W. HUl, arrived early yesterday after-

is commanded by Captain Newell, and her flrtt elerk Is
Mr. Nat. Gibson, both well kaown atcamboatmen, and
favorites oa the river.
XS" The Icte Friiiee will leave to-morrow afternoon
for Napoleon. Capt. John Shirley It her tommander ; 711;
Wood it her first clerk. Those wishing to travel to the
mouth of 'White river could not select a better packet.
EJ- We have heard nothing farther from the sUamer
Cumberland. The Aa.txor.ia will probably arrive to-day
when we will be enabled to give information concerning
both her and the Xiegara.
3" The St. Trancit hat gone down to the steamer
Repiiet, hard aground on Helena bar, to lighten her.
Who can hese? We undentand that one
of onr cititens, who recently made a pleasure trip to New
Orleans, discovered upon his arrival there, that he was
the fortunate holder ot a lottery tlsket, which had
drawn a prise. When last heard from, he was "going
it" extenslveiy, with a suite of rooms in the ladies' de
partment ot the St. Charles Hate), with a private box
at the Opera aad one of Dubois ne pint ultra, carriages
in constant waiting at the ladles' entransi. Conaifericg
it beneath his dignity te travel cpen a public convey
ance, he had purchased ene ct the Southern Packets and
was busily engaged ia fitting up her ladles' cabin in a
magnidcent style to carry himself and a select party back
to Memphis.
Again we tty, who can he be? P

Until the origin of the American party, we sever
made a pat tlsan question in the election of either our
county or city Municipal officers . At 'er aa experiment ot
two years, the American party voluntarily surrendered
their policy, aad their action In the premises wss hailed
with pleasure by a majority ef our citlaens.
I can conceive of but ene cause that can be brought for
ward for a return to the abandoned policy, and that is
this : there may, peradveatnre, be a few aspirants for
office who feeling conscious that they cannot be elected on
their cwa merits, yt t, trusting by management to get the
nomination ot their party, hope to be elected by a partisan
vote. Let all such be watched.

An Infamous Business.
When aa enterprising man starts oat a sew batteess.
to tbe establishment ot which he gives Ms ladst try, tal
ent! aad pecuniary means, cas aaytaiac be mere con
temptible than to have another steal ia, aad, nader tpe
cieus pretexts, bold out to the peWfe aa hatettor artiste,
and endeavor to obtain their patrostage? Pray, what
difference Is there, so far aa the heaesly of the thing la
concerned, betweea purloining the business by which a
cltixen hopes to make his bread and steaHag the bread
itself? A common thief, if he takes without leave, how
ever hungry, a loaf of bread from a baker's shop, is ap
prehended and condemned to the penitesttary tar daring
la a surreptitious manner to appease hts appetite; but
put a respectable looking coat on his back aad a few dol
lars la his pocket, aad he may, with Impunity, nay, even
with the app)ausi of his fellows, by knavery, forgery or
other Infamous means, take the business or an haaest
maa from him, aad go unscathed of justice. Aft this le
wrong. Some y'ars since a geatleraaa of this city
(Hdolpho Wolfe) iatrodeced to the eitizeos of the Halted
States a medicated article of gin, wbKh was highly ap
proved by professional gentlemen as a superior tonic and
deobstruent, and the knowledge of which he, by adver
tisement aad otherwise, disseminated throughout tha
country. So soos as tricksters, who pass in the buslaesa
community as honest men, saw that Mr. Wolfe was Hkery
to have handsome returns tor the mosey which bo had
expesded, they set about forging his labels aadpabalBZ of
up a the people detestable asd potseaeas eenmuBe's
which they have the hardihood ta caM "SeMedaai

to put Wolfe's aame to their villalsoos BquHi. Aa"thl"i
horde are growing bold iu their rascalities, It is time iSa
public In town aad country were put apoa thsir guard.
Consumers should be sure that they purchase the genu
ine article, or else their health may be Irreparably Injured
by using the horrible ttua that unscrupulous menbe
canse they can buy It cheap, will offer as the genuine ar
ticle. Pure Schiedam Schnapps ran only le obtained at
