The general feattue of the general market to-day is treneral dullness. Mer chants ary resolved not to do business on credit: planters are busy ploughing jv! liome; i'tisi'ie.-s is therefore without animation. Our wholesale houses for manufactured goods are especially de termined to do no more business tbau tbev can see their way from to profit aud" payment. A wholesale dry goods mere haul observed to our reporter to day: "I prefer having in my store goods that are worth something, to recording on my books debts that are worth noth ing." Against this we set tbe follow ing, from the Louisville Courur of Mon day: 'The dry goods market, as we gatiier from the leaning bouses, contin ues to 6teadily grow up to a very large average. It fs the general report that southern buyers have been as numerous as in jKifci seasons, wniie tuose rrom noro' uoriLtn l.t,:i : . ut.. -t t-udiuy? in largely increased force. Buyers are : r--enied as in a better average con dition, and cash and short time transao '.ions constituting a better proportion of :.he aggregate business. The steady rul ing of the general markets, since the Vbolesale purchase- were made, has ,. n a notii eable and encouraging feat ure and altogether tbe trade has been healthy and sound as well as of large dimeuNona." The feed market was in u droopitgcondititiu to-day throughout. There wa a moderate inquiry for Corn ivals, and lots of 100 to nri iriinortaOt am ..... k- v. .'U at A . tbe very low rate of corn in New Orleans, and the kuowi e.ige that a laiT amount of it is stored there, weighs hiaviiy upon this market. Tbe first Europemi' steamer, however, that take- a full car?o aboard from the New Orleans levee will clear out the stored lots aud- urices will go up. The knowledge of this fact, a.'d the expecta tion that the rising river ill stop, for a while, farmers from bringing corn to the river bank, is producing a stiller leeling amoug holders. Tbe Cairo Price-C"rrr nl says of com at that port : There is no chipping demand. Re iii toll are liberal and stocks are accu inuiaMug. White corn weaker but prices are still as previously quoted. Sales of one car aud 300 sacks mixed iu slundees del at 45c; 9 cars mixed in bur jape del 44c; 3 cars white in burlaps 47c; 1 cars white in bulk on track 3bc, and 1 ar mixed in bulk on track 3V-." Oat gold this morning at i--, with a mod erate demand; elsewhere they are repcMed firm with a fair demand, but the an"! val of a caual lioat load the other day has depressed the market. Tbe Cairo Price-Current says of oats there: "Receipts ligM and demand active. Tbe old stock is held in store, and prices :ire stifl at au advance, closing to-day at Sc iu aacks and iltia in bulk on track. Sales 4 cars sacked and del 36c." Bay Is without movement and weak. The 'airo Met Cum nt reportsof it : ''Mar ket well supplied with low grade of mixed ami prairie, which is not wanted. No choice hay in the market and none coming in to meet the demand for it. We note but one sale on 'change, that of a car of prairie bBy del at$12perton." The new gr is springing up, and hay is becoming a drug. Brun is, emphat ically, "nowhere"; the only sale we beard of to-day w as at 14 37 eaeb., in kx1 comiiUiui and good new sacks; in Cairo it quotes $14. Cornmeal was very uuiet at S2 40; the Cairo Price-Current I reporta of it : "Market well supplied and very dull, buyers on 'change otter $2 00 and $2 10; sellers holding firm for $'J. 2& A few hundred barrels sold to till order att 2 25." Flour remains as last re ported, but very dull aud not firm. Tbe it. Louis Democrat says of flour; ''Tut market for flour the past week was dull- than the preceding, aud that was un usually dull. Tvie shipping demand has itf.n vei v light, confined almost alto- gether to tbe filling of small orders of the lower grades oi winter stock. Tbe .narket was -low and weak throughout, aud prices were irregular and unsettled, aud were hard to place, coimequeut upon the very dull market at d tne lack ol oufideuce iu values, both here and at other domestic flour centers. Prices have declined from 10 to cents, ac cording to grade, and it is probable that rountflots would sell still lower if pur chasers cuuld te found. For spring flour there was no market whatever." The Cairo Price-Current says: "The flour market continues dull and inactive. We note uo change iu prices, but bold trs would be forced b make large con cessions iu order to efl'ect sales. A few buudrcd barrels of various grades have ven disposed of iu small urder lots at i.ri' ranglrg from $5 to 10. We note L khI yesterday round lots from fiist bauds 100 bbls XX winter, $7 25; loo nblsdodd to arrive ?7 75 and 75 bbls choic XX. winter delivered at 8 " Potato remain in the same irregular decreased condition as already reported; we hear a holder this morning express his wUiingnew to aeJl his whole st oc sound and of the various qualities iu de mand, at $1 50 a barrel, U, ny uojug , lie could be rid of bis whole stock of about 200 barrels. The Cairo Price- Cur , reports or potatoes: "The market is over-stocked and no demand at any price. Choice peach blows cfloied on change at $1 So found no buyers. Butter is unchanged with a good de mand; the Cincinnati Times reports: "Arrivais on tne increase, and the sup ply is much better; price are a shade fwWer. Tbe local dealers are the princi pal purchasers, though there was some inquiry on orders. Tbe accumulation wae mainly qualities below prime. We .quot selections at 87c ; choice 83&5c. Central Ohio and western reserve rue, 8Q33c; good, 2927c; fair, 22 ; oomo.ou, Wyko.'' Mgg are plen tiful nd 16c wae the regular price. Poultry is unchanged, Imt Gcee are al most unsaleable; we aaw coops of fair geese for which no higher bid than $4 a dozen could be obtained. Chickens are firm at $4$8. No Turkey offering. The hog product shows some irregulari ty. For bulk pork clear sides from 9 to jjc was asked, and for bacon clearsides from 9j to 19c. Lard was also irregu lar; for refined in tierces askings varied from 9 to 9$c. It is not always easy "to decide when doctors disagree," but we give below what we consider to be the market prices. The Louisville Courier of Monday reporta: "Provisions have doue no more than hold their own, as prices hardly show a point of change throughout the week. Holders are sat isfied thut the present range of prices is justified by the condition of stocks and the prospects of consumption, and seem to eutertam no anxiety as to their abili ty to mam tain them. The consump tive demand showed no material im provement." The St. Louis 6Vo6c of atonuay says: "In provisions there was comparatively little doing, yet all class es were held above buyers'views. Spec ulators regard prices at a maximum, and hesitate to operate, while order buyers find them also too high for them to till o u . Pork was strougt r yesterday . and transactions unimportant, and there were no sales of dry salt meats, and pricts for bacon were strong aud higher for future; and for the same reason as has restricted transactions iu other de criptioutj and the small amouut out of smoke, tbe transactions were light. Lard was firm but quiet and unchanged. The reported sales of bacon for the fu ture comprised about 0000 to 9000 lbs. at 7ic for clearsides June, 7 for clearsides a. o. Jiny, uo August he, buyers' option May 10', do s. o. August 101c." The Cairo Price- Current reports as follows : "Provisions are very dull. Supply ouly moderate aud prices although weak are unchanged; we quote nominally as follows: Bacon shoulders packed at "7Jc; clearsidis tacked, teJg.lOc; p;aiu country-cured hams, ll(a-12c; plain sugar-cured hams, 12lSe; lard in tierces, 7;iSc; in kegs, aoloc: pork, $17 per barrel." 3ess park in confined to but few hands; there is a fair demand for it at from $17 50f3 17 75. The 8t. Louis Globe of Monday has the follow ing as to the general "condition of the markets: "We regret that no improve ments can be noted in any of the mar kets over the general characteristics of the week. None of the leading mar kets were in movement and while there was no positive decline, there was a general inaction and a lower tenden cy, if there had been buyers to insist on lower prices. Perhaps never, iu the commercial history of St. Louis, has there been less animation on 'change than for some time past." The same paper says: Meaniers tor b;low are takiug freight at barge rates." Quotation are for round lot unlent oth erwise expressed; and for feed and prod i . i rtf rales, for small pur chases and orders, rales are propor tionately higher: Bacon Clearsides, Cftltli. clear rib. ,(; shoulders, 7a,7ic; sugar-cured hams, cauvassed, 1415c.

The weather yesterday was cool and cloudy, a cold "rain having fallen the nigbt'previous. Tbe river came to a staud at noon, when it stood thirty-two feet five inches above low-water, and three feet four inches below high-water mark. The White and Arkansas rivers are falling, as indicated in our telegrams. The upper Mississippi is rising, as is also the Ohio, but the Missouri is falling. The signal telegrams received last night show the following changes since Sun day night: St. Paul, rose one foot; Omaha, fell four feet six inches; Daven port, rose one inch; Keokuk, fell four inches; Cairo,rose two inches; St. Louis, stationary; Pittsburg, fell three feet nine inches; Cincinnati, fell three inches; Louisville, rose two inches: Shreveport, ro e seven inches, and Nashville, sta tionary. Movements of Boats. Considering the extreme dullness in commercial ciroles, the business done at the landing yesterday was fair. The Julia came up early, aud left for St. Louis with a light freight, and the St. Joseph, from that point, had 115 bales bay, i- packages neer, d.-so barrels meal, 30 casks bacon, 144 sack3 wheat, 817 sacks oats, 787 sacks corn, 200 sacks bran, and 623 barrels Hour. The George C. Wolf passed up from Red river with a light trip. The Kanawha left for the Ohio river with four empty salt barges. The Marble City added 50 tons, and got away at ten o'clock in the morning for Vicksburg. The Cle burne, from Wbite river, brougbt HI bales of cotton, 141 sacks of seed, aud reshipped 26 bales of cotton at tbe mouth of White river. The Simpson Horner will repair in time to leave to-day, and the Nashville will have her boilers re paired ho as to leave this morniug. The White and St. Francis got away with fait trips, both backing out at the same moment. The Belle Lee came up about seven o'clock in the eveniug, and laid here two hours, discharging lt0 barrels: of potatoes, 20 crates of cabbage, 40 boxes of fruit, aud other stufT and had 100 tons for the Ohio, The Mary Mc Donald was expected up duriug the night ; the Belle Lee passed her seventy miles below . Steamers Coins To-Day. The regular United States mail packet Pat Cleburne leaves to-day at noon for Devalls Bluff, Jacksouport, and all points ou White river. Captain Win. Ashford commands, and l). r. Davis aud Neil Hooker are clerks. The Phil AUin, Captain James Lee, will leave this evening at five o'clock for Friars Point and all the usual way landings. Stack Lee and Wynne Can non are clerks. The regular Ohio river packet Heury Probaieo, with Captaju Bobinsonon the roof, leaves this afternoon at five o'clock for Cairo, Louisville, Cincinnati and all the upper coast landings. Mr. Alex.

The cabin fare and accommoda tions of tbe Indiana are first-class. The James Howard, Captain Pegrani, departs at four o'clock to-day for Vicks burg aud New Orleans. Messrs. Chas saing and Peter Wirtz are clerks. Few steamboatmeu enjoy the popu larity that Captaiu A If. Stein does among our citizens and merchants. His reputation has been well earned, and a more energetic and wide-awake man never commanded a steamboat. Hie present craft, the John Kilgour, is one of tbe finest steamers iu the New Or leans trade, and as a speedy, safe and comiortable boat she stands in the front ranks. She is fast and reliable, and is announced to depart at nine o'clock this morning iWeduesday) for Vicksburg, Natchez and New Orleans. Captain Ben. M. Merrilles, an agreeable and popular officer, attends to the office duties. Tbe great steamer James Howard will positively leave for New Orleans at rive o'clock this afternoon. The How ard is well known as one of the floating palices of the Mississippi, and whenev er in port commands the undivided pat ronage of travelers. The elegant and unsurpassed pas senger and freight steamer Alary Houston, Captain Charles Miller and Elliott Miller clerk, will be down this morning at eleven o'clock for Vicksburg and New Orleans. The Houston, as all travelers and shippers know, is one of the finest steamers afloat. Her cabin and staterooms are large, and her table is stocked three times day wild tbe very best tl.e southern aud northern markets afford. Secure your staterooms of Captain Lightburne. Klver Lend Line. The signal bureau is about to erect telegraph lines along the lake coasts duriug the season, aud with the recent appropriation of three hundred thousand dollars made by the last congress, ex pects to make many improvements. The first thing done should be tbe establish ment of a station at Leavenworth, and have correct telegrams sent from there daily, of the stage of the river, and next the establishment of a station at Fort Gibson, or some other available point on the Arkansas river, and also oue at Jacksouport, on the White river, from where river reports should also be sent Referring to the called meeting of the board of supervising inspectors at Wash ington yesterdayjau up-jtream exchange says: "A special meeting of the board of supervising inspectors of steamboats has been called tor tbe fifteenth instant, at Washington. We are not aware of tbe specific reasons for the call, but sup pose that General Smith intends to iu augurate a thorough reform in this branch of the public service, and have chiefs come to an understanding, so that the law may be carried out in the pro per spirit. It is to be hoped that at this meeting the rules of the board will be classified, condensed, and siuinlihed. so that all interested may kuow how to in terpret tnem. As they now stand, they are a puzzle, even to a Philadelphia lawyer The low est rate ai wuicn corn was ever carried from bt. Louis to New Orleans was seven cents per bushel, and the rate is now twenty cents per hundred pounds, a trine over ten cents per bushel Last rnday's Cincinnati Tuns and Chronicle has the following: "This morniug a man, accompanied bv a Sici ly wife and one child, made application for deck passage to Rockport, Indiana, on the Kilgour. Having In bis posses sion ouly five dollars, and being anxious to reach" his relatives, he tendered what he had, but the generous impulses of Captain Stein prompted him to refuse the man's ail, and instead of on deck, he was given a comfortable room In the cabin. Such acts of benevolence never go unrewarded." The great steamer 1 Jaaies Howard, Captain B. R. Pegram aud Mr. J. H. Chassaing, cashier, will be on berth, and will leave for New Or leans at four o'clock this evening. Go dowu and secure your staterooms The wind . blew a gale from tbe south last night The Mary Houston will be down to-day for New Orleans. She is advertised to leave this morning. The Houston Is well appointed, popularly officered, aud does her freight and pas seuger business to the entire satisfaction of all concerned Tbe Nashville Union and American contains the fol lowing: "On the trip of the steamer Tyrone, and when the boat was near Ashland, Cheatham county, James M. KI listen, tbe mate, and M. H. Rowe.the steward, became Involved in a difficul ty, and for upward of half an hour fought with a will, and for the amuse ment of bath passengers and crew. Up on arrival here, Rowe was arrested up on the charge of assault and battery with intent to kill, and the case was tried before Justice Caseetty, last evening. After an investigation the accused was discharged, for the want of proper jurisdiction." The Bismarck will be down to-morrow for New Orleans A St. Louis ex change thinks the aquatic men of the Vicksburg press are iu need of a second shipment of "specs." Tbe following petition is being exclusively circulated und signed generally by residents on the Illinois. They fear that the system of locks and dams will prove detrimental to health : "To the twenty-eighth gen eral assembly, State of Illinois The undersigned petitioners, residents on aud near the Illinois river, most respect fully petition and request that your hon orable body will resist and oppose by your votes in that houorable body, all bills or measures that tend to tbe im provement of the Illinois river by way of dams aud locks, at any and all points on the Illinois river; but we request that if any appropriations should be made by any act of the general assembly for the improvement of the Illinois river, it be made for the purpose of improving said river by way of dredging out the chan nel of said river and wing dams." Lewis D. Vaughn, the man arrested here Sunday charged with the assassination of General Hindman at Helena, four years since, states that from October, 1870, to March, lS71,he was an engineer on the ferryboat Red Rover at Helena. On Monday tbe Arkansas stood at twenty-two feet eight inches at Little Rock, and was falling at Fort Gibson. So says Monday's Little Rock Gazette. Our information is that another rise is coming down that stream The little steamer Hallie is plying regularly be tween Little Rock aud Fort Smith The Jenny Howell had twenty -three hundred bales of cotton for New Or leans when she left Little Rock the oth er night Captain John D. Elliott, of tnis city, nas gone to 3iadison, Indiana, to attend to the affairs of the City of Augusta The Mary Houston left Louisville with a good pile of freight and a cabin full of passengers, for New Orleans On Saturday last the level of the Water at Vicksburg was twelve feet eight inches below high-water mark, and thirty-six feet five inches above low-water mark ; up to last night it had risen five inches, and was then thirty seven feet ten inches above low water. Gentlemen who arrived here yester day report the Cairo aud Fulton railroad washed away iu several places by the rise in White river. At one place seventeen hundred feet has gone Regarding the recent "rise" in the Ar kansas, Sunday's Little Rock Republi can says: "The late heavy rains seemed to have swelled every river, creek, stream aud bayou to such an ex tent that just at present it is impossible to calculate with any certainty the im mense destruction of property caused thereby. We are also informed that Jacksonport is completely submerged, and that the citizens use dugouts, rafts and small boats to go from house to house. Considerable damage to proper ty bad been done, but to what extent at this moment it is impossible to tell. We have meager reports from other sections of the State, where more or lees damage to property has been sustained, but none to life that we have heard of." The White river rise is, doubtless, the cause of the St. Louis excursionists postpon ing their trip to Little Rock A con siderable amount of railroad iron left along the banks of the Arkansas by the Susie Silver, William J. Lewis and other boats during tbe low water, has been submerged and is now covered with mud and sand Frank Hicks telegraphed from Helena that the Belle Lee would arrive here at seven o'clock last night, when she blew her whistle it was just three min utes past seven. Close calculation Under the head of "Marshal's Moni tions" in the New Orleans Republican it rnuay, is tne steamer Natchez, li belled bv Frank Joseph and others, and steamboat Dexter, libelled bv James H. Williams, et al Captain James Ken- uiston has chartered tbe Belle Vernon to Robinson's circus company at the rate of two thousand dollars per month, the boat to le delivered on her return from this city. Captain Kenniston will command during the charter The St. Paul Pioneer of Friday sav: "rrom entietnen who came down from Brcck- nridge last evening, iuformation has- been obtained iu regard to a remarkable rise iu tbe Red river of the north. A few days ago that stream was reported to be still solid, and now the water has overflowed its batiks and is rapidly flooding the adjacent prairies. lesterday morumg it had reached the roundhouse at Breckinridge, and the railroad officers fear that the trains will lie wholly unable to reach that point to day. The entire site of the town is ex pected to be under water this evening. and it is claimed there has been no pre cc ii nt for such a great and sudden rise siuce 1861." The Sioux City Journal if Thursday contains the following: Ihe river here is higher than it has been since 1867, when it cut through aud made what was known as Walker's 1-land, a few miles above this city. It was falliug a little last eveniug. The ico w hich arrived at this point Tuesday evening at half past five o'clocK, put in an appearance at umaua at twelve o'clock yet?rday. This we call pretty good time for floating ice ten knots an hour. It became necessary yesterday, on account of the Ice, which came thundering and crushing down against the Western and Key West, to drop them down some distance into a kind of pocket in the bank for protec tion. The hull of the Western forward was considerably cut and raked." The Emma Elliott comes down in place of the City of Chester The James D. Parker, on her last trip, was out only thirteen days from Cincinnati to this city and return An expert calculates that the superfluous inn on Treasurer Spiuner's autographs during his thirteen years of office would have sufficed to float a Mississippi steamer or a first -Glass gunboat Captain Charlie Scbultz compromised with the owners of the Grand view wharf boat, sunk by the City of Cairo, by paying them two thousand dollars. They wanted three thousand five hundred dollars The Julia got a saw log in her starboaid wheel when she started out yesterday, disabling her temporarily, but after floating a mile down the river, she got it out and passed up The Little Alps takes from here to .Mew Orleans a raft ol sixteen hundred walnut logs Captain James Chenoweth is endea oring to establish a Cincinnati and Red river packet company. If he succeeds, it Will be a wonder only equalled-by the huge water-magaziue on the blurts The Batesville goes to White river to morrow evening A libel was filed yesterday by the owners of the Oil City against the barge that boat pumped out and raised below here, before a United States commissioner, and .the discharg ing ot freight from the barge was stopped. The Oil City chaps only want a lair compensation lor their services, and should nave it, the insurance interest- to the contrary notwithstanding. Tbe barge and freight was insured for over five thousand dollars..... Captain Tom Leathers will start the atebe;' up stream on a fast run just as soon as the river begins to fall. He has already telegraphed here for two floats of the best Pittsburg coal to be left at the foot of President's Island, and will take them iu tow. He means business. The Belle Lee came from Helena here in eight hours. She expects to ar rive at Louisville on Friday, and return from there Saturday See. the local colums for the latest sensation The Arkansas fell four feet at Little Reck yesterday A Little Rock associated nress dispatch received last uignt says : "A graveyard situated on the banks of the Arkansas, twenty miles below trfis citv. caved into the river on Sunday, and about seven hundred bodies were washed away in the rapid current." This information was no doubt taken from the Appeal of yesterday, which reached Little Rock last night, ana con tained the full particulars.
