A reiriment of United States sol diers arrived in the city last night en route West. The complaiut now is that the mud on the country roads is three feet six inches deep.

It wa the first genial day in a month, and windows that were hermetically sealed during the frost were uplifted and un curtained to admit the blessed and re freshing air of heaven. It was the burden of conversation on the streets yesterday that General Grant had accepted Leubrie's invitation to be present at our Mardi Gras, which will be the greatest display in theUnited States, and equal to any Naples ever made in the days of her greatest revelry. On Poplar street, near the corner of High, there is a disagreeable hole in the sidewalk, and a dangerous "bulge" out In a brick wall that supports a bluff in side. This peculiar weather is loosening everything, and that wall may flop out on some luckless passing children, if not taken care of. A horse ran away on M arket street Apply at yesteruay regardless oi iue buggy lull of its, lames ne was ,ira :n alter linn, i he top of the vehicle was left at one side of ies the street and the bottom at the other. while the ladies were detosited in the miuaie. tteyona tne fright, they were not much hurt. A number of ladies request us to ask Mrs. Bowers to perform once more the characterof "Mary,Queen of Seots,"and if not too much trouble, we hope the talented artist will comply. By doing so she will confer a favor on those who are among her most ardent admirers and generous supporters. This evening the members of the Geueral Council meet, as a matter of course, to grind out the regular monthly grist. In the course of three years the members of the City Council never once called for any p.tatement, report or show ing, from the ofrrcew of the city -they were afraid of the Mayor. During the month of January five hundred lodgers were accotiiinodated at tne Adams street stationhouse. This is outside of the usual rush of prisoners. One of these homeless-bv-ttiglit . i - - j m his cheerless garret a few hours after be ing taken in. The oldest of the waifs was seventy-aine and the youngest but seven winters. Th McLan case was resumed in t. 1.' ... . s, i mo run v nesi i .4unniom again on Monday, aud still got tn. Mr. McLean iumseii was on the stand yesterday, tell ing how he didn't know anything about iron ma trusty servant Jiuier was carry nig on the business of the offlee. Miller was ms chief clerk. He is commonjy called "Sweet William." The Mechanics' Association has not yetcrystalized into permanent shape, but the members are nevertheless talking of tanneries, furniture-shone and cotton mills, all of which could be easiiy estab lished here, and would succeed very well if the right meu had hold of them. Talk, however, will never do anything toward their establishment. A yung man was overhauled bv detective Walsh, Monday night, who was considered not to be the proper owner of a cloth cape, lined with red. and nineteen dollajs in money which were found upon his person. He gave up the cape and money.atid was allowed t go because there annears to no means of prosecuting such bovs in Lit tle Kock. A wandering bruin that had mt loose from its owner, in Happy Hollow, found his way to the corner of Main and Poplar streets yesterday. He walked leisurely into a tailoring establish mem to fit on a coat. The tailors were greatly astonished, and quickly sought refuge on top of the highest boards in the shop. iue owner appearing lit a few minutes to take charge of the bear, all appre hension was allayed. The natural Ingenuity and inuusit- ivenessof boys is shown in the fact that they have discovered and stolen about '.en hundred weight of lead from the water-pipes yet above gr.Mind. The lead hued the bulge at the end of each section. Not a man In two scores ever knew anything about It, while the boys discovered it and hooked the lead. This will lead to a cost of about two thousand dollars to tbe water company. Louis Washington, a bulky colored man, wasaant to jail by the Recorder yesterday, in default of two thousand dollars bonds. Louis knocked a man down on the levee the previous day and I took a pair of pants from him, and was I Immediately afterward arrested by Ofli-' cor Schlkk. Louis would not have! done it bat for the cravings o an enor-! i. r apetlte, which craved three : i'- unds of beefsteak and several glasses of whisky, every three or four hours. rk members of the police force, it The stalloiihou.se-keeiers and the watch men and turnkeys have constant and h.-avy duties to perform, aud beim? en rolled members of the force, ought to have the same pay. Several attempts were made in the Board of Aldermen and Common Council to have the pay of these officers raised to that of patrol men, but they all failed. Another at tempt will be made to-night, which will uot ia.il. Let the pay be restored to its original figure. Jacob G. Miller is in bad luck. He is in the statiouhouse for having Issen caught with his head and hands stuck in a cotton bale at the river end of Adams street, and a half-full sack by his side. He was at the work very soon after dark, when private watchman, Mr. Thomas, just stepped up and grabbed hini by the arm. Jacob G. Miller puts himself down as a mechanic. He blames liquor for the catastrophe. The same bale that Jacob G. was found delving into was lost a few nights ago. and after ward found in an alley, and fifty pounde oi it gone. Between the hours of nine and ten o'clock on Sunday night the house of Mr. J. P. Barbee, at Neabitt's Station, on the Mississippi and Tennessee rail road, was entered and roblied bv some scoundrels who took a black leather pocket containing money and valuable papers, and then set fire to the place which resulted in the destruction of the store attached and the loss of two thou sand dollars by the fire. Mr Barbee had the stock and property insured in the Bluff City company's office for fif teen hundred dollars. Thus the thieves and incendiaries operate unchecked in the country. Sheriff Doyle and three deputies left the city this morniug for Nashville with elevencandidates for striped clothing at the penitentiary, as follows: Ed. Clark, larceny, seven years; Bob Brandon, same; Bob Kelly, three years for lar ceny; John Butler, same: Abe Fletcher, one year for larceny; Archie Taylor, same; Cassius M. Clay, same; Charles Hicks, same; William Carter, ten years for larceny; Levi Beuice, three years for grand larceny; John McGinnis, two vears for shooting, this last-named is "ratty,' who will be grievously missed from the city during dull spells, and the fountain of "local ' invention dries up Bloodhounds are very uncommon in cities. They are a terror m appearance but much worse in reality. One of them was loose about the neighborhood of Poplar street yesterday, to the dismay of all ordinary dogs aud nervous people. A cuui-uog tnai never was iteaeo in a fair fight, full of honorable scars, blear eyed and toothless, yet proud, tack led the big bloodhound as boldly as he would have declared war against a calf. The fight raged fiercely for about half a minute, but after that it was all on one side, like the handle of a pitcher. The bloodhound got the bulldog's head be tween his jaws and took it into the enor mous cavern. In fact, it quickly disap peared, and the neck of the ancient ani mal would have been chawed off had not a prompt hot poker been applied to the nose of the hound, which caused him to relinquish his hold. The bull dog is on the sick-list, now. During the sloppy weather a kind hearted parient who lives in the suburbs bought a pair of boots from John W. Vageli, for bis bey, having the under standing that if they did not prove "fit" they would be taken back. Next morning the boy got up early, and, find ing the new boots in his chamber, slipped them on and ran rollicking in the mud. Toward breakfast time, how ever, the boys mamma discovered tne hoots to be rather small, and they were 1 returned to the shoe-merchant, who re j fused to lake the muddy boots back. A I coir hafiir.. a stimid SViiiire ensiled, who gave some sort ot a judgment that did not agree with the ideas of the shoe dealer. The case w as taken up and oc cupied the Second Circuit Court three days, there being a misstrial in the first instance. At the end of that time, and when over one hundred dollars expense had been incurred, it was decided that Vccgeli had no right to take back the boots. To the TI KM OKI A I,.

A SLIGHT EXPOSURE IN BAD WEATH ER, when the system is out of order, often brings on a stubborn cold. The attending cough irritates the lungs, and if not promptly treated frequently devel oped a tendency to a tulssrculous condi tion.

Jayne's Expectorant, which soon Ioos-;us and eradicates coughs, soothes and heals inflamed parts, and removes all anxiety by set ting the patient on the way to good health once more. Sold everywhere.

The .rliciic for February is out, and is a splendid affair, full of fine articles and very fine engravings, both on wood and steel. As a work of the highest style of art, both typographic and in the way of cuts, this journal is ahead of everything published in the United States. Its merits would require a long ana laooreu article to do them justice. The Traveler' Official Railway Ouide, for the United btates and Cana da, is a monthly publication got out under the auspices of the General Tick- el Agents' Association, and contains all the latest facts in reference to all rail roads on the continent. The subscrip Uon price is three dollars per year. We have received the february number. containing about four hundred pages of pnmcu taoies ana maps oi roads.

D., of New York. Dr. Browu- Sequard is one of the first in the pro fession, a very successful student and a deep investigator as well as a clear and polished writer. The fact of his hav ing control of the pages of this valuable medical monthly is a guarantee that nothing can enter within its covers but matter of solid value. The mechauical finish of the periodical is unexceptional, typography clear and carefully execut ed, done on thick-toned paper, whilst the arrangement of the articles are sci entific. There is nothing "slip-shod" about it. If one may judge of its future merits by this first number there can be no hesitation in saving that it will occu py the first place In periodical medical American literature. i commonly thought, are not overpaid Fob dyspepsia, indigestion, depression of spirits and general debility in their various forms, a preventive agaii st fever and ague and other intermittent fevers, the " I erro-Phosphorated Elixir efficient or i .-..isaya, made by Caswell, Hazard Co., New York, and sold by all drug gists, is the best tonic for patients recov ering from fever or sickness. It has no equal. Aroused to a sense of impending ruin by the startling developments made in uie report or tne Uraud Jury, in May 1872, the citizens of Shelby countv. lov era of economic, honest and good gov ernment, irrespective or nativity, creed, pariy, class, color or condition, at a large public meeting, resolved to appeal to the next General Assembly for relief. In pursuance of that resolve, we now come with a statement of the grievances and intolerable burdens under which we suffer, and a suggestion of some of the measures of reform, which, we think, will afford to some extent the desired relief, and ask the earnest con sideration of your honorable body thereof. Our taxes for 1872, including those of tne city, ana exclusive of the istate tax, were about one million four hundred thousand dollars; yet, notwithstanding mis vast sum wrung from an overbur dened, impoverished people, our countv is without a public building of any kind". save the jail ; our roads and bridges are iu wretched, ruinous condition: the streets of our city, with few exceptions. are a disgrace to the corporation ; our cuy-s crean a nyword or reproach, in stead of applying our taxes, as they should be, to the econcininal adminis tration of justice, and to the material improvement of our county and city, and to the education of the illiterate, this large sum is consumed, in great part, by a horde of unnecessary officials, engaged at large salaries, in the mal-ad-ministratiou of a cumbrous system of laws, and in part by defaulting Tax-collectors, who nave defrauded the county and State of large sums, through the neglect of the proper officials to faithful ly discharge their duties, as required by law. From the first of January, 1870, to the first of April, 1872, the administration of our Circuit, Chancery, Criminal and County Courts cost the county $309,598, of which $96,715 were for jury service. The cost of jury service for a single year, ending thirty-first of March, 1872. was $o,4S. The cost of assessing our taxes for the last two years, iuclud ing those of the city, has been about ?2.j,000, yet the assessments are so care lessly and imperfectly made, that there is not only no uniformity of values, but the description of the property, iu the large majority of cases, is so inaccurate as to convey no title under a tax sale, so mat no purchaser can be found, and the property is struck off to the State, to be beid till the owner, at his lei sure and convenience, redeems it. Then it costs us annually about 340,000 to collect the State and countv tax a salary greater than that paid to the Governor and all the Supreme Judges of the State combined. Without going here into greater detail, we submit with this, a copy of the report of the Grand Jury, made in May, 1872, upon the con duct and condition of our county affairs, exposing a state of things, verified by subsequent events, alarming to every friend of good government, and requir ing, at your hands, immediate and most stringent remeflies. These evils, doubt less, prevail to a greater or less extent in every county in the State, but with us they have assumed such aggravated form as to drive our people to the verge of bankruptcy and despair. Capital has fled from our midst; trade aud industry are paralyz ed ; ruiu stares us in the lace ; the farmer, the merchant, the manufacturer, the professional man, the mechanic, the la borer, are sufferers all from these bitter evils, and none more so than the poor, who are made to pav ih the increased price of rent.- aud provisions for the heavy taxes imposed upon the mer chant and property-holder. Some of the worst evils uuder which we suffer can only be reached through coustitu tional amendment, and we therefore most earnestly urge First The calling of a convention to amend the Constitution in accordance with Article XI, Section 3 of the Consti tution. Second The abolition of one of the Chancery Courts and one of the Circuit Courts of Shelby county, to take effect on the third Monday in Septem ber, 1873 the unfinished cases in the abolished courts to be transferred re spectively to the Chancery and Circuit Courts remaining. Third That trial by jury in civil ca ses te dispensed with, except when ex pressly demanded by a party or parties thereto. Fourth That three Assessors for each county be elected by the Quarterly court once in every three years, whose assessment shall be the basis for the col lection of State, county and corpora tion and ail other taxes during the three years next suteequent to the making of the same the Justices of the Countv Court to be ineligible to hold said offices, and all laws providing for the appoint ment of Assessors in anv other mode ,,r by corpora tin us be repealed.

The river here came to a stand yester day, and now the water level is fifteen feet two inches above low water mark. Last night's signal telegrams report a rapid decline at Cairo, but st nearly every other point above, the rivers are rising. A rise of seventeen inches was reported at Pittsburg yesterday, and at Cincinnati the Ohio rose five feet and one inch. At Louisville it was rising, and our Evansville telegram noticed a rise there. The Cumberland is rising rapidly at it.- head waters, and a young flood is expected at Nashville. At St. Louis the rise yesterday was six inches, and as several gorges have broken above there it will be much more to-day. The Arkansas was stationary at Lit tle Rock yesterday morning, but will, no doubt, lie reported rising to-day. A rise is also reported in White river, in the upper part of which there has been heavy ice. The prospect just now is favorable for a heavy rise, and unless the weather should again turn cold there will be a large stage of water everywhere lor some time to come. The weather yesterday was clear and spring-like, and prospects at night were favorable for clear weather to-day. Business at the landing was quite act ive, and more freight was sent down to the local packets than they have had for several months, all leaving with full trips. Swap era Going To-Day. The Legal Tender leaves this evening at Ave o'clock for Devalls Bluff, Jack sonport and all way landiugs. Captain John Edson commands, and Messrs. George Alcoke and William Miller are her clerks. The Belle Lee, one of the largest and finest boats on the Mississippi river, now at the wharf, will depart at Ave o'clock this evening for New Orleans and the bends. She has superb accommodations and fare. Mr. J. S. Sullivan, a gentle man well known, and a most popular omcer, presides at her desK. The Arlington, Captain Dan Moore, departs to-day at five o'clock for Lou isville and Cinoiunati. She is one of finest and best officered boats iu the Ohio, and a trip on her would be en joyed by any comfort-seeking person. The Aiinneoia, captain Jiuier, leaves as above, at five o'clock, for Louisville aud Cincinnati, and goes through with out delay. The City of Chester leaves this even ing at Ave o'clock for Cairo and St. Lou is. Captain Ziegler commands. Weather probabilities. Washington, February 4.

The Nashville carried a big trip. The Simpson, Horner and John A. Wood are preparing to put tows through the canal, and the other boats here are actively getting roady to move. Miscellaneous. The Cleburne came up from White rjver yesterday morning with four hun dred and thirteen bales of cotton, and returned last night with a full trip. The Cleburne's officers yesterday re ported that when they In ft upper White river the Little Red river was froaen over, and that White river was also covered with ice at Oes Arc and be tween there and the mouth of Little Red River. Thoy also reported con siderable ice below Des Arc. On her way up, on Monday, the Cle burne's crew saw, some twenty or thirty miles below here, a deer floating in the middle of the river on a huge cake of ice, and made an attempt to capture it, but when within twenty feet of the cake upon which it was floating the deer jumped into the river and was carried down by the ice. James C. Porter, a well-known rived pilot, died at the hospital here a day or two ago of smallpox and was buried yesterday morning. He bad for some time occupied a position on the Legal JSatesville and other boats, and receiving and discharging business at the levee. Mr. Nuckles saeceeds him on the St. Francis. A telegram to Captain Ad. Storm, last evening, stated that the City of Helena for Vicksburg. and Capitol City for Memphis, would leave St. Louis last night. The Crescent City and barges passed down yesterday afternoon. She had also in tow a queer-looking craft, doubt less the hull of some sternwheel boat she picked up from the ice. The landing below Union street, and between there and Real street, was hub deep with mud yesterday. When will the city authorities turn their attention to the improvement of that valuable but sadly neglected portion of the city front. The Pink Varble is due from below. She has two hundred and thirteen bales of cotton, three thousand sacks of cot tonseed, and discharged at the mouth of White river three hundred and twenty nine bales of cotton for New Orleans. The petite steamer Swan, that has been plying in the St. Francis river at Marianna, came here night before last for repairs, and will return when her machinery is thoroughly overhauled. The Mary E. Forsythe left aoout six o'clock last evening for New Orleans, after adding here fifteen hundred sacks of oil-cake, twenty or thirty people and fourteen bead of blooded horses, owned and accompanied by Mr. Costillo, of this city. A telegram from Louisville last night to Messrs. Wait 4 Lew i.- states that the N. J.Bigley left there at noon yester day with a large tow of coal for this city. The Grand Lake started from Louis ville with two hundred and fifty-two thousand bushels of coal and lost one barge above Cairo. She used consider able on the way down, and had, when she reached here, about two hundred and twenty-seven thousand bushels. The entire tow was offered at forty cents per bushel, and wouid liave cost" had it been purchased, over ninety-one thou sand dollars. Considerable money that for a few boat loads of black diamonds. Vieksburgers, it seems, want cheaper freights than those given them now, and at a meeting of the Board of Trade 1 .1 that city, held on the twenty-ninth ulti mo, appointed a committee of five to investigate. As the resolution reads, "the entire question of transportation in all its bearings, freights from St. Louis, Cincinnati, Louisville to Vicksburg, .ew uneans, anu omer points, especial ly within reach of Vicksburg, and all other questions bearing upon transpor tation." Mr. John Ciiuton, second clerk of the Andy Baum,says the Cincinnati Chron icle, has been occupying the leisure time at his command, since the accident at the Memphis gorge, in composing a pa thetic ballad entitled, "Only Two Dol lars, Sir!" There is undoubtedly much music in that ballad, and John should tell where he first got the idea. Kansas City merchants are thinking of establishing a barge line to St. Louis. The Nick. Lougworth passed up yes terday afternoon, after discharging iiere seventy-six barrels of molasses and sev enty sacks coffee. She had a good trip of freight and people. Captain Patterson informs us that hereafter the ferry, John Overton, will make regular trips across the river, starting fiom the foot of Jefferson street. The Belle Lee had on board last night two thousand and seventy-six bales, and laid over until to-day to get several hun- ired bales more and complete the re pairs to her wheels. lhe Arlington arrived yesterday from Cincinnati with a cargo of four hundred and fifty tons. The St. Francis left for Marianna last night late with a heavy freight trip and cabin well filled with people. The Mary Boyd waited until a late hour last night for a hundred and fifty deck passengers, that came in on the midnight train, and had, when she left, one of the best trips that has started for the Arkansas this season. The White, when she backed out last night for Napoleon, was crowded with freight and people. Captain Mark Cheek's wife being ill, Charlie Sharpe went out iu command. The Legal Tender came up after dinner yesterday with eight hundred and fifty five bales of cotton, and reehipped a hundred and thirty-two bales at the mouth of White river. The Susie "Silver and DeSmet having repaired their wheels, left yesterday morning for St. Louis. The City of Vicksburg came up at dark last uight. and after putting out a little freight left for SL Louis. The Phil Aliin's cabin was well filled with people, and her deck crowded with freight when she went out last night. The City of Chester was expected from above last night, and will proba bly be found at the elevator this morn ing. The Ohio was rising rapidly at Cincin nati yesterday at noon. Up to that time it had risen four feet. The Grand Tower, City of Quincy, SL Joseph, Emma C. Elliott and Raven left Cairo yesterday for St. Louis, and the Arkansas Belle for Evansville. The City of Cairo from Louisville arrived at Cairo yesterday morning, and probabiy lert ror the south last night. The barge Lucius was dropped down to the landing yesterday, and has uow about two thousand bales of cotton on board for New Orleans. When the Frank Forrest backed out Monday night she injured her wheel ujs-in the wreck of the corn boat that lies just below the foot of Uniou street, and which should be removed without delay. Before the recent cold weather set in, there was at Louisville fully six million bushels of coal, and since then enough has been put through the canal and over the falls to justify the prediction that there w ill he an abundant supply hWe within a week. In fact, there are sev eral tows already below Louisville com ing down the Ohio, and moie left there yesterday. The price, of course, will decline as the supply increases, aud steam boats will doubtless be supplied within ten days at old prices. Carter 4 Conn, of St. Louis, have j sued the National Insurance Company for eight thousand dollars on a policy of insurance on the ill-fated steamer Oce- I anus. The Crescent City had in tow, when ! she passed here yesterday, the hull of! the steamer Emma, which was burnt on 1 Shawneetown bar some time since, and is now en route to lcksburg to have her cabin and upper works rebuilt. lhe auti-cai uazeite is terribly se vere ou Supervising Inspector-General Nimmo, it says: "Mr. Nimmo.who has been acting as Supervising Inspector- General of Steamboats, has published a iLTI MOSUL.

There is no reason for this extension of power. He says: 1 The present law contains no specific provisions for conducting investiga tions in regard to casualties.' If Mr. Nimmo will look at the rules of the Supervising Inspectors, he will find that they provide for all sorts of investiga tions. His muddle in the Mctij disaster case must not be covered up by such an excuse. On page o he treats of the Bien ville disaster, and says: 'The safety of life and property on board of this ship was dependent ou the efficacy and relia bility of one steam pump.' Will he read the certificate of the ship? Does, he mean to say the local iuspectoR did not know their business?
