Our Weekly, a mammoth sheet, full of the freshest news, will be issued to-day, reitdy for mailing, at five cents per eopy. It was equally thoughtful and good iu whoever did it the putting down of new steps to uie entrance to the t ouuty court building on Union street Mr. ( ratimer recovered some more of the silverware that was stolen from Meridian, Mississippi. This piece is t sugar-bowl of very neat workmanship The past two mouths of unprece- dently severe weather has had a worse effect on the streets of the city than the previous eight mouuis of genial and balmy breeze. The Marre trials will U' resumed this week in the Criminal court. The Attorney-General has iudictments,foun 1 uy the Grand Jury, against Marre in ten or twelve cases. Already the cos turners are busy pre¬ paring for Mardi dras. Those wno wisn to be ready with their designs on that occasion had better look sharp. It is just one month till Mardi Gras. The advocates of a Mechanic's Lien Law had a meeting in the room of the Second Circuit Court last night. The Mechanics' Institute members will have a meeting in their rooms to-night to ad¬ vocate the same measure. The window glass that was broken by snow-ballers on Sunday must be re¬ paired at the expense of the city. It is one of the municipal duties of the city government to pre'ent mobs from doing violence or injury to persons or property. Those who have purchased tickets at the Grand Operahouse had better have them exchanged, as the non-ap¬ pearance of the company last night broke into the arrangements for the week, and there are different sets ol tickets for each night. A genius in Dixon county says: "I seat my self to drap you a fue lines to Inform you of the business I shall name. I wfeb some information consuming the memphis appeal send me price list or sample or a coppy containing the per- ticlers I would like to sultscribe for 52 no of the weakly if your charges suit." The argument in the already cele¬ brated case of William McLean, Ex- County Tax-Collector, was commenced in the f irst ( ircuit court yesterday, ie fore Judge Heiskell. The several sur."- tiesof Mr. McLean hae lawyers em¬ ployed to work up their particular fea¬ ture ot it, so mat mere areeiguiecu nrsi class nii'liuiers oi ine uar piejmuut; speeches and reading Jaw in relereuce to the peculiar merits of this case. It is known among legal gentlemen as the lawyer s case." The Brownsville Bee says: "We learn bv private letter from friend F. M. Sangster, of Fulton, that the fires in the bluff at Fort Pillow continue burning. The bluffs have leen on fire for the last twenty-four weeks, supposed to be a Ix-d of lignite that is teing consumed. There is thought to le a fine vein of coal in the immediate vicinity, and there is some talk of sinking a shaft to test the matter." Iu speaking of Southern genius, The South, a paper published in New York, thus speaks of a poetess of gTeat merit. The lady is a niece of Colonel M. C. (ial- laway : "Mrs. Sallie A. Vauce, of Mem- his, was pronounced by the late George 1). Prentice a bright star in the literary timameut of the South. Her poems are marked for iwtetness aud iiathos, as well as for exceeding smoothness of versification. Her productions have not been frequent of late, but ten or twelve years ago they were very generally pub¬ lished aud greatly admired." Within the past four or five years the business of divorcing has assumed large outlines in this city. Petitions are sent in to the two Chancery Courts aud the two Circuit Courts almost daily. It is curious to go over the bills of com¬ plaint riled in the several courts during four years and observe the multiplied grounds, fantastic and unthinkable, on which the bonds are sought to be sev¬ ered. A few of them may be enumera¬ ted bad breath, snoring, nightmare, spasms, cold feet, iucougenlality, vio¬ lence, drunkenness, worthlesness, gam¬ ing, abusive language, sent to the peni- lentiary, desertion, inconstancy and de¬ bility. These be a few of the ills that married flesh is heir to in this part of the world.' Speaking of the bill introduced by Colonel TCerr, the Brownsville Stales remarks: "Our friend Kerr, of Mem¬ phis, has introduced a bill to suppress the Code of Honor iu Tennessee. We think it aRogetber unnecessary, as it is a code not much used in this State auy- way. We are delilrately of the opin¬ ion that people die, and are eaten by worms, but not from the exercise of the code. . More eople die of bad colds, taken by not keeping their mouths shut at the right time, than ever Mere killed by duels. The people ol this State, in the main, are very quiet people, not much given to sending challenges, and if anybody inflicts insult or injury upon them why, they just curse it out. Mrs. Sarah Howell, so-called, was jailed yesterday in default of five thou¬ sand dollars hail, for attempted seduc¬ tion of a little girl named Maggie il orris, who had become an orphan in St. Louis about throe weeks ago, her mother hav¬ ing died of smallpox in that place. Mrs. Howell was accused of attempting to lead the young girl into paths of vice and iniquity. Maggie had arrived in the cHy, being sent tlown here after her mother's death, stopped one night at the Worsham House, and then fell in with Mr. Howell, who lives in "NoIkmIv's Block," back of the ounty Jail. Mrs. Howell, so-called, took the girl to her lodgings and kept her there, not allow¬ ing her to leave the place. Her purposes were of the most diabolical character. The police arrested her on Saturday, and she was dealt with as above stated. The girl will be taken care of properly. An old lady went to the Chief-of- Police yesterday, aud with tearful eyes besought him to help her recover her daughter from a condition that was, to say the least, dangerou in the extreme. The old lady stated that she had don.- all iu her power to bring the girl up in a proper manner, but she "had went aud got married" some time ago to a man named Willis, who showed no inclina¬ tion to work for her, or act toward his wife in a manly way. The (,'hicf sent for the old lady's daughter to Annie Gallagher's, on Poplar street, and pro¬ cured an interview lietween the two, the result of which may prove satisfactory. Willis arrived in the Chiefs office short¬ ly afterward looking for his wife, with as much impudence as If she had been spirited away from his own hearthstone. The Chief-of-Police gave him " a talk" that will tickle his ear for several days to come. Willis was on the police in New Orleans, aud it is charged that he killed his partner. When Captain Athy inquired of him yesterday, " Didn't you kill a man in New Orleans'."' Willis answered, in a sneering sort of tone, " Yes, several of 'em," and left tb office. His wife is only nineteen years old. It is not disagreeable to notice a llittle life in police circles once in a while, even if obstreperous darkeys cause the manifestation. That class of citizens caused a general stir in the limits of the lower district yesterday. Sam Johnson, an ugly negro, who says he is from the Pigeon Boost road, where the Alabama road grading crosses the same, had the pleasure yesterday of making a fearful fuss down town. He had his trusty six-shooter out and firing with it indiscriminately in all direc¬ tions. Officer Haekett felt coustraii ed Proposition to Establish a Manninctory by tne Mechanics of Memphis. The mechanics and contractors, aud others directly interested in skilled and unskilled labor, have been alive to the importance of procuring the passage of such a law by the ijcirislatiire as will se cure to them the prompt payment of their wanes, their salaries or their stipu lated contracts. On Wednesday last a number of these gentlemen met in the room of the Second Circuit Court and effected a preliminary organization for the purpose stateU. Last ninlit the Second Circuit Court room was nearly filled with mechanics and laborers, to bear the reports of sev¬ eral committees on termanent organi¬ zation, aud other importaut features. The committees were not ready to re¬ port, but the great object for which the Mechanics Association was started the lien law was fully discussed ami ventilated. Mr. Flaherty occupied the chair, and Mr. J. Sweeney was appointed Secre¬ tary. Mr. K. Clay King being called on to give his views, made a speech on the law they wanted enacted, aud read a draft of a bill he had elaborated, which gave satisfaction, though it was evident that some alterations and amendments were needed. Mr. N. K. Cochran also sent in a short draft of a bill or lien-law, which was read, but no action taken thereon. It was then proposed, oy Mr. f arris that the draft of bill as proposed by Mr. King be adopted. Mr. JLatirill proposea mat tne question at issue be postponed, and a committee of three appointed to wait on Mr. King for the purpose of having several other clauses inserted for the benefit of all parties, aud to report at the next meet¬ ing. The following committee was ap¬ pointed: Mr. Farris, Mr. Mallon, and Mr. LaGrill. MAM -KACTCKES. The following resolution was offered by Mr. Farris, and adopted : licxotvca, inai tne cinur appoint a committee of five, before our next regu¬ lar meeting, who shall report on some practical plan of inaugurating some branch of mauufatcuriug industry that will command the united energies of mechanic:, in the city of Memphis.

Mr. Farris then explained at some length the lienefits that had accrued to the city ol Memphis from the Mechanics' Institute, the Exposition Building and its workings, and the graud enterprises they have iii view. It was then proposed that Colonel Turner be apointed on the committee to wait on Colonel King. It was also proposed that the Association meet again on next Friday evening. The following were appointed as a committee for the purpose of meeting Mr. Doyle, and conferring with him in regard to occupying the room then used: J. Flaherty, J. Sweeny and W. Brown.

In my opinion it is the best written communication of any kind or character that lias appeared 111 a Mem phis paper for at least one year. With all due defereuce to " Common Sense," " Investigator," "S. W.," and other writers. Mrs. Meriwether lavs them deeply iu the shade. She understands her subject, and handles it without any speculation or doubt. She is mistress of the situation, and is conscious of it; hence, handles it with ease, fluency ami fviirincing iower, while the others above-mentioned "think thev have it." Colonel Kerr will, beyond doubt, amend his bill, or let it tic, for all who know him teiieve that he wishes to benefit! he weaker sex; for clearly the intent of the old Mosaic law was to protect the wo¬ men, aud prevent them being laid aside for weak and frivolous causes, and 1 think Colonel Kerr, in his enthusiasm intended it as the same thing. A word to Mrs. Meriwether: In just such was and by such means she can do more for her sex and society than could two women of equal mental power and two would be hard to find in any one county vested with "legislative honors." It is a fact our courts are both jealous and zealous in protecting the wo¬ men and minors in their rights, and the law-making power a majority of the masses is on their side. The men, as a rule, while wrong in many things, and prefer darkness to light, yet, on the subject of the rights of women, are anxious to know the right, and Mrs. Meriwether is in a lietter position to en¬ lighten them from her "domestic throne" than if she were "Speakerof the Senate.' Teach the lietter and lasn the worse into wisdom's paths is wo¬ man's true mission, and only woman can tell ot her wrongs, and to her all honest men will give heed as far as she is right, and ninety times in eery one hundred she is right from intuition. From so good a wife as mine.I could not get a divorce on any plea. So, to be even, 1 intend to be so fully an average good husband that she will not want one, for she often tells me that mankind are such hard customers that she doesn't know of a lietter chance, so w ill hold om to me. It would be wrong to deceive sueh faith, and on my plane will be found Colonel Meriwether, Mrs. M. s good husband. I am not surprised that Mrs. Meriwether takes up this suls- ject with suck spirit, and only iu this does she differ from her sisters, for all women who are eood wives feel iust as she does; only few, however, have the pluck to grapple with the evils she com¬ plains of, and courage to expose them. Men are too timid to do wrong if the wrong is likely to be exposed. They will make and break irood laws when they are thought to be jealous for their maintenance, .-show them just what is right and just, and reasounhle, you se¬ cure opinion and law to enforce the 06- xerrance.

Let us suppose a case: If this spiritism should become common, and mediums thick as leaves in the vale of woods say there shoald be fifteen hundred ef¬ fective mediums like Foster, dwelling all over the earth and working with the constancy and energy that characterizes his efforts, and then that the Emperor Wiihelm, or the Pope, or some other no¬ table character should die those spirit¬ ists would most likely be all calling for that spirit at the same time. He would be allowed no rest or peace, but would lie kept flying from Kngland to Kamschat- ka, and from there to Australia, and from there to America, and back again to Italy or to Prussia. Nay, we should have the poor spirit In fifty different places at the same time, talking Chi¬ nese, Dutch, Irish, Spanish, Bussian, Sanscrit, Arabic, Latin and Greek, and perhaps a hundred other languages that he never knew anything about. In this view of the case, it is evident that the spread of spiritism would be a dire ca¬ lamity to the disembodied, .snooks. AMUSEMENTS. There is nothing to be said of the per¬ formances last night except what is good. Short had his stage fixed up in treat style, everything was in sleek working order, the grooves were; all greased, and the pulleys oiled, and the old scenery dusted. The carpets were also iu a clean condi¬ tion, and the elegant furniture revar- nished and regilt, all of which had been done during the week of horse opera, and iu joyful anticipation of the appear¬ ance of Sirs. Bowers. The whole ar¬ rangements were satisfactory, but Mrs. Bowers did not arrive, and, consequent¬ ly, there was no performance. A simi¬ lar state of things characterized the Grand Operahouse. That graud, gloomy aud peculiar building stood frowning In darkness upon those who hastened thither between the hours of seven and eight o'clock, thinking that a splendid comic treat was before them in witness¬ ing the great Owens, as " Solon Shingle," or any other mau. Owens aud bis boys were detained at Colum¬ bus, and also Mrs. Bowers. Columbus will become a sort of fashionable resort for the great stage artists of the country. They usually stop there for a day or two. The play that was announced for last night will Iks presented to-night. Ik your tkroat is sore, or you are an¬ noyed by a constant cough, use prompt¬ ly Dr. Jayne's Expectorant.

The regular monthly meeting of the Chamber of Commerce was held yester tlay at three o'clock in the rooms iu Mosbv & Hunt block, Front street. President Hill in the chair. Colonel Pinson, from the committee appointed on the matter of a Cotton Exchange, made a report to the effect that he had not been able to do any¬ thing so far. He was not yet prepared to report UDon the matter. Colonel Bavliss spoke a strong speech in favor of a Cotton Department iu the Chamber. He insisted that something ought to be done in that way and done at once. over taxation. A long discussion on oppressive taxa¬ tion followed. Mr. Gates spoke strongly ou the subject. W. R. Moore also made a speech, in which he showed that there was an immense pile of back taxes un¬ paid, and hence those who do pay are taxed 'he heavier to make up the de¬ ficiency. The tax question was veu tilated in first-class style by those two gentlemen. ' THE JACKSONPORT ROAD. Mr. Moore made a short talk, showing the necessity of a road to Jacksonport, Arkansas, a distance of ninety miles. The trade of that part of the country would be inevitably lost to Memphis un¬ less the road was constructed. His own agents who had come back from that section report that there is every pros¬ pect of losing that trade unless the rail¬ road be built. We said that even a nar¬ row-gauge road would do. It could be constructed for twelve thousand dollars per mile, aud he had no doubt two hun dred thousand dollars in private sub scriptions might I raised in the city for the purpose of building a narrow-gauge to Jacksonport. Ihe following committee was ap¬ pointed to take the matter into consid¬ eration: Messrs. (jcjodbar, Moore aud Judah. SECRETARY'S REPORT. The Acting-Secretary, Mr. Winches¬ ter, read the following report for the Secretary upon the vital subject of finances: ClIAMIIKK OF COMMF.RCK,) Mkmciiis, January 17, 17:1. J Napoleon Hill. Esq., President Memphi I liaruher of Commerce: Mr. President It Is my dutv, as your .secretary, to call your especial at¬ tention to the deplorable condition of the finances of the Chamber of Com¬ merce. We are iu debt aud unable to meet our indebtedness from our collec¬ tions. There are quite a number of nominal members, who, failing to ap¬ preciate the advantages of such an insti¬ tution to the trade, commerce and character of our city, either refuse to set¬ tle their dues, or procrastinate so as to make them unavailable toward keeping up our credit. I have been authorized to bring suit against such members, but have delayed doing so from a conviction that a real monetary distress had crip¬ pled the resources of some firms and in¬ dividuals. But it is undoubtedly de¬ sirable that such persons should no longer be memlier-i of our board, as their membership only leads to delusive financial estimates, gives them a credit for public spirit they are not fairly en¬ titled to, and impairs our credit and standing. As a remedy, I would re¬ spectfully suggest that the annual dues 1 increased to such a sura as will bring the necessary revenue from sulmtantial members, who are determined to sustain the institution on a solid and useful basis, making such increase to take oflect on first of April next, and giving all members who are not willing to pay such increased fee of membershinau op¬ portunity to retire at that date," by giv¬ ing notice in writing, accompanied with the amount necessary to cancel all their arrearages. I regard some such action as this as necessary to the continued exist¬ ence of tne Chamber of Commerce, and it is for your honorable baXly to consider whether its existence is a necessity to the commerce of our city, of which, however, allow me to say, I think there can be no question in the minds of all who have the welfare of our city seriouay at heart. With a view, therefore, to carry out the foregoing recommendation, if it meet the approbation of the Chamber of Commerce, I would most respectfully suggest that a committee, to be com¬ posed of three members, be appointed to devise aud recommeud a plan of fu¬ ture revenue for the Chamber of Com¬ merce, which commitiee shall be in¬ structed to make a thorough examina¬ tion of the books of the Secretary and Treasurer, and make report at the next meeting, either special or regular. Such reference will place in the hands of the Chamber all the facts necessary to ma¬ ture action, aud will thus enable them to take such action as may be demanded by the emergency, with all the lights before them. All of which is respectfully sub¬ mitted. LEON TROUSDALE, Secretary. Colonel Pinson was in favor of suing delinquents, and not dilly-dallying with them any louger. The corporation is chartered and has the same power to sue that any other corporation has. On motion of Mr. Gates, the Secreta¬ ry was instructed to go ahead and sue the parties owing dues. The following note was read by the President: UE0n.il A STATF AliRICCI-TURAL BOCIF.TV.1 fit ! IIIHIIIII I. Atlanta, Jan. 2S. President Chamber of Commerce, Memphis, Tennessee: Sir The President of this Society and the Chairman of its Committee on Direct Trade and Immigration, General J. B.

It u ill meet on the second Tuesday in Feb¬ ruary (eleventh oftebruary) at Atlanta, Georgia. I am furthermore requested to say that a delegation from your city is confident¬ ly expected, and that you will please send into Colonel Barnett at Atlanta, Georgia, the names of your delegation without delay. Very truly and respect¬ fully yours, FRANK SCHALLER, In in ii.lt of Committee. The President said he would appoint a delegation to attend the meeting and would name men irrespective of mem¬ bership or not. The delegation will lie named hereafter. The Chamber then adjourned.

Ki vers and Weather. The river began to rise here yesterday morning, and up to three o'clock iu the evening had swollen oue foot, aud was then rising an iuch per hour, with every prospect of a swell of two or three feet. The change rejiorted elsewhere was a decliue of four inches at St. Louis, re¬ ducing the depth over Horse-tail to six and a half feet. A decliue of sixteen inches was reported at Cincinnati and eleven inches at Louisville, aud a rise of one foot is reported in the Cumberland at Nashville, where the level of the water is fourteen feet and two inches above low water mark, and that with a rise coming from the Wabash is the occasion, doubtless, of the present swell here. At Cairo the water level is stated to be twenty-three feet eleven inches, which would make a rise there of oue foot nine inches since Saturday evening. Duriug the same time the decline at Pittsburg was one foot six inches aud the water level five feet ten indies above low water, which, with the cold weather reported there yesterday, is anything but favorable for further shipments of coal. Ked river has risen two inches and has now nine feet to Shreveport, aud the Yazoo has fallen several feet to Greenwood. The Ouachita has six feet full to Camden, and the Arkansas a depth of five feet to Little Hock. White river has six feet to Jacksonport. The weather yesterday was variable; during the morning it was cold, but moderated at noon, and at nirht was freezing. Business at the lauding yesterdav was active, and the receipts of freight, es¬ pecially from the South, were larger than on any previous day for a mouth or more. It was removed from the laud¬ ing with great difficulty, however, as but about half an ordinary load could be drawn up the bill, owing to the ice and snow. Some few scattering cakes of ice passed the city during the even¬ ing, and by to-night or to-morrow morn¬ ing we may expect to see some of that which passed Cairo on Sunday aud yes¬ terday. I'pward-bound boaLs report it extremely heavy at anil aliove Island Sixty-live on Saturday night. Bjr lelerapn. Washington, Jauuary 7.

A great deal of ice is iu the river, and navigation is practi¬ cally suspended. A gorge is reorted near Commerce, occasioned by back¬ waters from the Ohio. The Belle Shreveport has gone to ihe bank five miles above here, and will not proceed uutil the ice thins. The Great Bepub- lic is aground at Perry's Landing, forty miles lielow here, and will not get off without iighteiiine. The Kichmond got over the upper bar, but stuck on the lower bar, aud now lies straight across the channel. The Alice is also at Home- Tail. She had half of her cargo re¬ moved. She is still fast, and will prob¬ ably have to await a rise. She is said to be in a bad condition. Pittsburg, January 27.

The Pink Varble, Captain John Fen- wick.will back out this afternoon at five o'clock for Pine Bluff and all interme¬ diate points on the Arkansas. The Grand Tower, Captain Lennox, departs at five o'clock to-day for Cairo aud St. Lou is. Miscellaneous. For the information of "Two Headers of the Appeal," at Little Bock, we would state that the length of the steamer James Howard is three hundred and thirty-five feet, overall; that of the Thompson Dean three hundred and six feet. The Hobert Mitchell, Joe Kinney and John Kilgour passed down on Sunday uigbt, neither doing any business here. All three were deeply laden, however, aud wanted neither freight nor stock. Charley Sharpe has again resumed his former position ou tbe A. J. White, which boat went out last night well la¬ den. Marsh Miller and our friend Hodge are her pilots. Mr. D. L. Gillespie will go as second clerk with Captain Milt Harry to-day on the Augusta. Lewis and Wm. Wor- mau are her nilots. The Mary Boyd passed Helena at ten o'clock yesterday morning, on her way to this city, with eight hundred bales o cotton, and is doubtless at the lauding this morning. The ieorge Wr. Cheek went out last night with a good trip. The Arkansas Belle left for Evans¬ ville last night with twelve hundred aud two bales of cotton. ; The Clarksville was to have left for the Arkansas last night with three hun¬ dred tons of freight, which she com¬ menced loading at dark. Eugene Smith and Thomas Barrett went out as her pilots. A telegram to Major Adams last even¬ ing, reported a decline of one and a half inches at Little Hock yesterday. Messrs. Clark and Hal-ton, our local Inspectors, returned on Sunday from a business trip to Cairo, where they in¬ spected the Mary Davage, B. A. Bab- bage, Atlantic. City of Helena, aud the ferrylxiat Cairo, and found them all "O. K." A telegram from Jacksonport, Ar¬ kansas, yesterday, stated that the little steamer Cora Belle, that has been in limbo for some time past, was bonded out by Captain C. K. Fairfax, aud has been chartered by the Cairo aud Fulton railroad, to ply as a ferry for that road at Newport, ou White river. A telegram to Captain Pepper, of the Thompson Dean, received last night, reports heavy ice at Cairo, but the boats were working their way through it. The Continental came up yesterday, aad put out here one hundred and forty- five hogsheads of sugar, three hundred and eighty-five barrels and one hundred aud seventy-six half barrels molasses, three hundred and ninety-one sacks coffee, one hundred aud fifty boxes tin, fifty barrels cement, thirty-four crates earthenware, and ten tons frui', etc., iu all about three hundred tons. She was busy at a late hour repairing her wheels, which had been badly broken by the ice below here, and did not get away, probably until a late hour this morning. Captain Stack Lee went out last night as executive officer of the Phil Allin, as¬ sisted by Billy Gray and Walter Mc¬ Donald. Messrs. Cummings and Banks are he Allin's pilots. The monster steamer Thompson Dean came up yesterday morning, nearly a week out from New Orleans, and went to the elevator and discharged about two hundred tons of sugar and molas¬ ses, and subsequently moved up to tbe wharflxat to repair her injured wheels She met the ice at Island Sixty-five, and Captain Pepper reports it the heaviest he has experienced that far down in years. He busied himself looking about the sawmills yesterday to get a numU r of wheel-arms sawed, but could find no oak timlier, Jind consequently was com¬ pelled to take ash. Tbe Dean has now ou board eight hundred tons of freight, two hundred of which is for Cairo and the remainder for Cincinnati and Pitb- burg, and is principally sugar and mo¬ lasses. She will lay here all day, and leave at five o'clock this evening for Cairo, Evansville, Louisviile aud Cin¬ cinnati, aud will go through to the latter point, allbrdiug passengers northward- bound an excellent opportunity to travel on a first-class steamer. We hear now that before long the Katie will take th place of the K. E. Lee in the lower trade, and that the lat¬ ter boat will lie placed in the Louisville and New Orleans trade. Captain Pepper announces his inten¬ tion of placing the Thompson Dean in the Memphis and New Orleans trade next fall. Should he do so he may rest assured that he will not withdraw his boat for want of patronage. Mr. Mclntyre, clerk of the James D. Parker, is in the city attending to the busiuess of that steamer. The City of Quincy passed up last night, discharging eight hundred pack¬ ages of sugar, molasses, salt, etc., here. She had two barges and about oue thou¬ saud tons for St. Louis. The remains of Captain Abe McPike were on board. '1 he Little Alps came up on Sunday from New Orleans with two barges, con¬ taining eighteen hundred liars railroad- inn for the Louisville railroad.

The St. Francis brought up, night before last, three hundred and twenty- four bales of cotton and five hundred and sixteen sacks seed. The Phil Allin brought one hundred and eighty-two bales cotton and five hundred sacks seed. Capt. John Woodburu, formerly of the St. Marys, now treads the roof of the Anna, now loading at Cincinnati for the Arkansas. By private telegram we learn that the Mississippi was expected to gorge at Greenfield last nighu Eastern papers announce the death of Mr. Louis De Coudre. This gentleman was one of the very few yet living who had a hand in fabricating the machine¬ ry of the first steamboats. At the early age of thirteen he was taken by James f. Allaire as his first apprentice. Mr. AUaire at this time was carrying on a j small brass and bell fbundery. It was at t hi.- fouudery the iron castings were made for McQueen, who had machine j works, and did the work for Bobert Ful¬ ton in applying his steam engine to the first paddle-wheel steamer the North Hiver or Clermont. Included in the trip of the John Kil- j gour is a single item of twelve hundred i barrels of whisky, Dexter fe Sons' steamboat brand, shipped by Dexter & Sons, of Cincinnati. The shipment re- quired the signing of only one bill of lading, as it is all made to one con¬ signee. The value of the whisky is fifty ! thousand dollars. The Vicksburg Herald unintention¬ ally, of course copies the Appeal's news aud credits it to the AraJanche. ' The river chap on that paper has a poor I memory. The Great HepuMie had, when she left St. 1 .oiiis, one thousand tons of freight, I including six hundred head of stock. 1 Dick Kenuett and Julius Douglas are! ber pilots. r roin the St. louis papers we learn that the efforts now being made in the Missouri Legislature to repeal the law j passed some twelve months ago have j enlisted the attention and engaged the ; opposition not only of the steamboat- men, but of many of the merchants of I St. Louis. The final consideration of tha bill for the repeal of that law has t een made the special order for to-day. The United States snagboat Aid Is working to remove the wreck of the l Grand Duke, which has proved a great ! source of annoyance to Bed river steam¬ boat men for several years past. Shippers along the line of the Wa-; hash are very anxious for a rise iu that stream sufficient to oieu navigation.
