The NevrOrleans Bulletin, of the four--teenth

lias created quite a flutter among tbe
low-water craft, and the buy notes of
preparation are heard on board of many
of Uie light-draught packets now lying
Idle at Algiers We hear rumors that
our steamboatmen will, in a short time,
make a solid move in regard to the pres

acted from them. Cannot our city

employed by the steamer Hun'm Silver
to defend her in the infamous suit insti
tuted against her by the deputy wharf
master. This cae arose out of tbe Silver
carrying this negro up tj White river
some time since; he having remained
aboard until after she had backed out
Tor this free ride the negro claims ten
thousand dollars, and tbe boat thinks
lie owes his passage, as there was no
earthly necessity for his remaining
aboard." Join Billings speaks as fol
lows of the "majestic stream:" "I kon-
eider it mi duty to state, as a reliable
fikribWer for the fearle-s and independ
ent press, that tbe Ohio river iz the most j
unsartain brook laid down on tbe map,

ebowa good deal of ludiflerence; sellers,

The New York Bulletin, June 13th, re
ports: "There' was still avvery dull state
of affairs in the market on the spot, and
prices were again reduced Jc. The de
pression Is caused by the weakness in
Liverpool, and exporters and spinners
limit their purchases to small quantities.
For future delivery there was a decided
break in prices, which declined. 3
