Ill XI 122 ll IWJ 7 CI 73 GENERAL MARKET. There was some activity in the mar ket this morning owing to arrivals being MM literaJ, but there is not yet that tree play of purchase and sale that char acterizes the full spring market, ami which, it is hoped, is not far off. The New York lit raid has the following re marks respecting the commercial posi tion: ' The movement in general trade circles Mas still very irregular and very unequally divided. Many houses in the different branches of business report ed the markets inactive and nominal, while others reported an increasing movement and a fair business. But one thing is certain, there are much lews confidence and buoyancy than there were a few weeks ago, and many de scriptions of merchandise have experi enced a material decline during the past few days, the decline in numerous in stances being radical. There has been an increased demand since the decline took place, however, and it now looks as if the spring trade will be fair, though not H profitable as it was expected to le. But a movement of produce on al most any basis, which does not result in a decided loss, is a relief from the pro tracted jieriod of inactivity through w hich the commercial interests of the city now seem about to emerge, and HQT indications f a more active trade movement are gladly welcomed ou every hand." There was an arrival of corn which wa eagerly seized upon, a round lot of over sacks brought C3e, mailer lots 5 on thelauding. lhe Cairo I' : Current says com is accumulating there, aud prices are easier at 45f$49c. A - Mon as the stale of the banks will l-ruiit corn to Is' taken ou board the steamboats, plentiful arrivals here are looked for; cons queu'ly lower prices in a very few days are anticipated, iftta j.un sold on our lauding at 47e. The number of the Cairo Pri-:-Current - i - that the stock of oats is increasing there; they are dull and hard to place at ;c. is arriving and prices droop i'i;r, with t' o ui ich irregularity for close notation. The Cairo- JYice-Current ay- hay af all grades is declining there ; choice timothy on orders sells at $21, and good mixed at 515. Nothing sup poftl the rates of hay here but the uu w iilingue.-s ..f Ihesleamboats to accept it M freight a- long a- they can get articles that pay lietter (mm they occupy less sjiaoe this is an obstruction, however, which is diminishing every day.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports: "There is a firmer tone to the market for the best grades, and the tendency is toward higher prices, but no advance has yet taken place. We quote dairy 14J15c; facto ry 15$v 16c, and pine-apple 22fa3." Flour is lower, as will be seen by our quotations. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports of it : "We have still to report a dull market, the demand being quite light, and aside from the purchases for home consumption, aud the filling of small orders from the interior, there was no movement. An increased desire was manifested to sell, and concessions were in some cases made, but this did not lead lo any increase in business, and the market closed dull. Notwithstanding the decline which has taken place, prices are sun relatively lower than at the sea 7 50, as in quality and repu tation, and family 57 SOin 85 Fancy brands are quoted $86,9.' Oranges are in over-abundance, and Palermos were selling, for sound, as low as $3 per I xix : some lots have got into the auctioneer's hands. Provixions are unchanged. The Cincinnati Enquirer, of Thursday, report as follows: "We have still to report an inactive market for all articles of the hog product. There was more disposition to sell, aud in some cases concessions were granted, but without attracting the attention of buy er-, ami the market closed weak. .Spec ulators have generally retired, aud the purchases for consumption were com paratively small. A considerable amount of stuff is being delivered ou contracts maturing this ionth. For mess pork quotations are nominal. Buy ers aud sellers are still apart in their views, city packed is generally held at 15 2-5, but there was no demand above $15, and we do not think much could lie sold at this rate.

Kl ver- W rather- M I seel I aueoiis. Yesterday the river rose seven inches, and at night stood seventeen feet four inches above low water mark. The rise from the Ohio at Cairo, and that from the Mississippi, serves well to keep the water below Cairo at a good stage, and above there boats drawing from eight to ten feet have no trouble in coming out. Late news from the upper streams re port something of a decline, but there will Is? a good stage of water for two or three weeks to come.and then low water is expected above St. Louis until the June rise sets in. The Arkansas is about as low as it cau get conveniently, and is down to a summer level there being but a little over two feet at Bob Boy, and three feet over the bars below there. White river has about six feet to Jacksonort, the woist place being at Reed's. The weather was rather soft yesterday, aud the threatening clouds only opened once to let down a few droiis of rain just enough to lay the dust. The signal telegrams reporting the rise and fall of the rivers at other points, will be found in the miscellan eous news. Movements or Boats. Business at the landing was rather light yesterday. The Esperanza, from Cairo, brought nearly one thousand tons, including 1274 sacks corn, 714 sacks bran, 351 barrels flour, 324 bales hay, 922 barrels meal, oss sacKs oats, ITS barrels Ktatnes, V coops pouury, u tons bulk meat, 92 boxes meat, and a large miscellaneous list, and will go bacn to-night for anotner loau. ine Thompson Dean, for St. Louis, passed un iiefort- dav-lieht, with one nuuarea cabin passeugers and a good freight trip. ine Susie (silver, for Ked river, went down at eleven in the morning, with eleven hundred tons, which loaded her deep iu the water, and added twenty people and one porker here. She got twenty tons at Cairo, aud had, among other items, 800 hams, 200 tons railroad iron auu m car trucks, for the Texas Pacific railroad, and 220 tons of way freight that goes out this side of Kel 1 1 ver. The Auua. from the Arkan sas river, brought here 192 bales of col ton all she could nnd and re-shipped for New Orleans 51 bales at the mouth of White river. The Pat Cleburne, from White river, brought 59Q bales cot ton, 4ol' sacks seed, and le-shipped 77 balea of cotton at the mouth of White era UoIdk To-day. The Frank Forrest, Captain T. P. Sex ton, leaves this evening at five o'clock for Hailes Point. B. O. Mitchell is her clerk. The regular coast packet, Phil. Allin, Captain James Lee, will leave this evening at five o'clock for Friars Point and all the usual way landings. Stack Lee and Wynne Cannon are clerks. The Belle Memphis, Captain John Crane, leaves as above this afternoon at rive o'clock for Cairo and St. Louis. Mr. William Blenker is clerk. The Anna, Captain Beese Pritchard, departs this afternoon at live o'clock for Pine Bluff, Little Bock aud all points on the Arkansas river. Messrs. B. P. Field and Andy Grainger are the popu lar secretaries. The Esperanza leaves as above this af ternoon at five o'clock for Cairo direct, Captain John B. Conway commands, and tieorge ispi&ne is chief clerk. Ml seel I an eons. Coal has been reduced to fifty cents per box to steamers at New Orleans. Here the price is seventy cents per box. The itinerant expounder of the gospel again talked to quite a number of people on the bluff yesterday afternoon, but strange to say, his sermon had little or no eflect upon the river portion of his hearers. The John Kyle has a new coat of paint, and looks as fresh as a rose. The Esperanza loaded at Cairo at twenty-two aud a half cents for grain, and forty cents for flour per barrel, to this city. Captain J. 1.. anaiicrose, nt tneijouis- ville Underwriters agency, is in the city attending to business for his companies The Shamrock passed up without landinz yesterday morning, and had seemingly made an attempt below here to butt down some of the timner along the river. 8he had lost her chimneys below Vicksburg, a'ld erected stump, there. She was four days and a half coming from Vicksburg here. Captain Sam Adams, of the steamer Clarksville, telegraphs Major Adams here that the Oil City got her pumps to work all right, and at the first trial, Fri day, the hawser that had been placed under the stern of the Clarksville broke, tearing up her aft guards and causing considerable delay as the rigging bad to be battened. Shandley thought, how ever, that he would be able to raise her, and made the last trial at noon yester day, if unsuccessful we shall hear from him again to-day. The Clarksville had seven hundred and eighty-five bales of the Edinburgh's cotton when she sunk and had a small lot of miscellaneous freight for this city. On their way up, the lbompson Dean passed the Dexter under way. She may "tackle" the Lee or Natchez yet, and those boats would save their reputation (?i by keeping out of her way. When the Anna came down the Ar kansas, the Kittie Hegler was aground near Bankheads. The Continental, James Howard and Belle Memphis, are due from above today.. The Andy Baum got five hundred plows and seventy-five tons of freight at Louisville for this city. The Mary Houstou will be due down to-morrow night for New Orleans. Captain Beese Pritchard, of the Anna, reports only three and a half feet over nearly all the bars below Bob Boy, in the Arkansas, and there is not to-day perhaps more than two feet at Bob Boy. The Thompson Dean arrived here yes terday morning just before four o'clock, three days, ten hours and tilteen min utes out from New Orleans, and lost three hours and five minutes below here banding a crank of the doctor, which makes her time three days, seven hours and ten minutes to this city. She will pass Cairo early this morning, and, bar ring accidents, go into St. Louis about noon to-morrow, making her run up to St. Louis in five days, fifteen hours and twenty-five minutes. Pretty good time that, considering that she does a heavy way business. When she left here she was full of people and had a good freight trip. lhe following is a good story on Can- taiu Billy Forsyth, a pioneer boatman, well kno'wn by the old-timers: Iu 1S45, while running the Cambria, he was in structed by his Pittsburg owners to dis continue the employmeut of C. Basham, jr., as his agent at Louisville. He re fused, declaring that he would not give Charley for all the agents on the river, because he never disappointed him. 'Twas true, he never gave his boat a pound of freight, but he never promised her one. The harbor-master of St. Louis has bought the wreck of the N. W. Casey, sunk by the ice at that place during the winter. Price eight hundred and twenty-four dollars. Colonel Sizabad, a well-known journ alist, is on the John Kilgour, this eve ning, going to New Orleans. Of freights, Saturday's St. Louis Re publican says : "New Orleans freights are brightening up some, and Vicksburg freight is falling off considerably. Freight for the Arkansas is not plenty, but the Utah may possibly get a full trip by Tuesday. To the upper Mississippi it is accumulating rapidly, and the Clinton, going Monday, vill have every pound she can carry. Ouachita freight is now about done, and the Mary Mc Donald will probably be the last boat to Camden this season. There is still a large amount of freight in the city for Bed river, and the Carter Hue steamers will be full for some time." When she left St. Louis the Continen tal was drawing seven feet, with one thousand tons of freight, and was full of stock. Allen aud Duffy, pilots. The James Howard was well laden, with big engagements below; Andy Fleming and Wallace Lamb, pilots. She will be followed by the Mary E. Forsyth, Tues day. The City of Alton follows the Continental to New Orleans. Several of our young river "bloods" were out with their fast horses trying the Richardson aud boulevard yester day, the gayest of the gay being Cap tain Sam Shock, who drove, perhaps, the handsomest turn-out ou the street. The Savannah, the first boat from Davenport, left there Friday for St. Louis. Already considerable produce is coming down from the upper streams, but the amount will be greatly increased in the next two weeks, as by that time boats will be running through to the foot of Lake Pekin on the Mississippi, if not to St. Paul. The big James Howard had two thou sand tons when she left St. Louis Fri day night, and was to fill out below. Captain John H. Burk is coming down in command of the Continental. Parties are surveying Horse Tail bar with a view of removing the obstruc tions in it and improving the channels running through it. Captain T. B. Hill takes command of the Uliuton, and U. Carroll goes in the office. The Great Bepublic leaves New Or leans on Wednesday under the new ar rangement. The Mountaineer left Camden Thurs day for St. Louis. The Julia has been painted, and is now in fine order. Since Captain Blake has purchased her he has put, at least, ten thousand dollars of repairs on her, determining to have as fine a passenger, as well as a freight, packet on the river; and he has been successful. She will be down to-day. Captain Joe Elliott returned from St. Louis Saturday. When the ldlewild arrived at Evans ville her officers told all about the race up with the Grand Tower, aud how they beat, her and used only Shotwell coal, while the Grand Tower had Pittsburg coal. They said, too, that they ran side by side with the Grand Tower for sixteen miles at a single stretch, aud for twelve miles at another time, and at one time passed her under way, but they never told the position of the boats when they reached Cairo. However, Joe McCul lough offered to make the trip to Mem phis and back for nothing, if the Idle wild did not " get away " with the Tower, if properly prepared for the con test. Captain Lennox, on Saturday, made quite a different statement, aud says the Grand Tower did all her way business and passed the ldlewild twice under way, without an effort. He does not consider the ldlewild any match for the Tower. If these two boats happen to get together again won't the feathers fly? That four thousand barrel salt pile upon the levee was viewed by "Many Voters" from the blufls, yesterday. Some wondered if the city had turned the levee into a grand, free warehouse. According to the ideas and informa tion fif the St. Louis MsWrafl report er, the Edinbuig has an i veil safely at New Orleans with her eighteen hundred bales of cotton. The latest inormation we have is that she is resting quietly and sweetly on a bar, up the Arkansas, above JLittie Bock, and the eight hundred and seventy-rive bides of her cotton taken by the Clarkaville, had even to go through another washing process by sinking while on the Clarksville, and is doubtless now on the bar near where the Clarksville sunk. Henry, the little son of Mr. Chassing, clerk of the James Howard is, we are sorry to learn, suffering from a severe attack of meningitis. On her way up, says the St. Louis Democrat, " the City at Qnincy dis charged two cisterns aX Vicksburg. They are not the sort used here. They .ire manufactured at New Orleans and used there. It was one of them that Mr. James H. Tschudi fell into last year, one dark night." It costs five or six thousand dollars to make a fast trip from New Orleans to St. Louis. Considering that fact, it is hardly probable that Captain Leathers will try it again. On Lake Pepin teams were crossing last Tuesday on the ice. Cairo papers record the fact that Cap tain John Newman, formerly pilot of the James Fisk, and now commander of the J. W. Mills, is too much married, and has got into trouble by being mar ried a couple of times at once. Report says he has a wife in Shawneetowu and another in Cairo. The Cairo lady no doubt comes first on the list, as there are parties who know her to have been mar ried as far back as lstjd. The St. Paul Press of Tuesday says : "The Blue Earth and the Minnesota rivers at St. Peter and Mankato have broken up and the ice started down the river. The snow has almost disappeared on the prairies in Southern Minnesota, aud i.- only found in i tanks and ravines, and in the forests, l. nless a heavy tail of rain comes, those rivers will not en croach upon the banks very much. fart ie s in Jobnsonvule are talking of building an elevator on the river mmt, which will greatly benefit the handling of f reight, and is much needed in that town. What a pity it is Memphis carr- not have another, it would benefit the city and the boats at the-same time. W here is the new elevator company? The Merchants' Southern line com prise the John Kyle, City of Quincy, Charles Bodmann, Tom Jasper, Robert Mitchell, Henry Ames, and City of Al ton. J. P. Baker superintending that line tor the season. Cook Creighton, formerly of the Rich mond, is due here to-day from Cairo, and will be welcomed by a host of friends. The Mobile and Ohio railroad have once more began receiving southern freight at Cairo. On r rulay last there was a heavy ice- gorge above the bridge at Dubuque, and also between there and Savannah. Our boatmen, says the St. Louis Dem ocrat, when they loiter in Vicksburg, sometimes call for a glass of beer. The price is ten cents, and nearly everything is high in proportion. the Clarksville, now undergoing a se vere dose of raising at McKenzie's, up the Arkansas, was built at Madison, Indiana, in lt69. and carried four hun dred and fifty tons. Her length is one hundred and sixtv-pnrut feet- breadth. thirty-four feet; hold, four and a half feet, tier machinery was formerly on the Centralia; cylinder, four feet stroke, thirteen inches diameter. We mentioned yesterday that the steamer Sioux City had sunk in the up per Missouri. The accident occurred at Fort Sully, and the boat went down in nine feet of water, by the ice breaking up. She is thought to be a total loss, as nothing can be got to her to wreck her, and the river is rising there pretty fast. She was insured for twelve thousand dollars, on a valuation of eighteen thousand dollars, in Wheeling, Cincin nati and Pittsburg offices, and was sold to Dr. Burleigh, of Sioux City, for four teen thousand dollars on her arrival at Sioux C'ity, which sale, of course, is null and void. It is said she made sixteen thousand dollars for her owners last :-eason. The estate of George L. Keuntz, one of the wealthiest steamboat owners of the south, is to be sold at marshal's sale, under the bankrupt law, at New Or leans. He buUt and owned the thirteen Eras plying in Red river, the Grand Era, and other steamers, and owned the ferry privileges of Algiers. Ou her way down the Capitol City put off at Cairo a colored deck passen ger who had paid his fare to that city; and who, during a fit of appoplexy, was seriously burned by the deck stove. The Cairo authorities protested against the darkey being put off, and threaten-i a prosecution of the boat's captain, who left thirty dollars there to pay the dar key's hotel bill until he gets well.
