'J New York Tribune, tpeaking of tho a-cuai icpnrt of the comptroller of tho currency, which had just been publiah e J, sy tbe movement since November has been m rapid that tho decrease of c reaction within six mouths has been ceariyas great as it was during the nine R--'hs prtsowling. On the first of November the legal-tender circulation was $373,236,221, and it is now S70, 5.7,fi76, bo that tbe contraction of ltgl-t-ndera has been ?2,70S34S On the first of November the bank circulation vas $315,5S6,902, aud it Is now S336,9S6 CCO. ho thm the c infraction of bnk cir cu a'iua has been $S,e00,S30. Moreover, fie amcunt of legil leaders on deposit tz- surrenderor ctroulation has increased Cb,U3,759 siaca November 1st, so that the agg'ep'te c mtraction of currency hs b r-j $19,452,443, or very nearly 3 o)v boo per month. It will be inter est' eg to ooaerve that the act of January ' 4 .n, which was by many expented to r3c'u?e i' Ha ioD, and by others to cause a eubstituaou of bauk-notea for legal-tcaULr-s has iu fast eo operated as to cause a greater contraction in theamount of Ig;ai-teoders in sctaal use than ia the anount of bauk-iiates, and there is r?& n ta believe that thia'will be Jta ef fe"! in future.

The arrival of the Giand Tower yes terday was the occasion of a pleasant little affair between an oyster dealer, who, by the way, is an old mariner, and several dealers in tropical fruits. The oyster man bet a email amount that he could name within fifteen minutes of the arrival of the Grand Tower, which resulted in his naming the time within six minutes. He is a good guesser. An item that may be of interest to our young mariners in this high water is that, duriDg the great flood of 1844, the steamers St. Louts Oak, Omega and Reveille, made pleasure-trips from St. Louis to Casey ville, seven miles distant, by way of Papstown, which is across the American bottom. At that day the bottom was a wild waste; to-day it is one of tho richest and best cultivated parts of Illinois. The abovo trips were made from the twentieth to the twenty sixth of June. The desolation caused by that Hood Is too well-known to men tion now. To all who are suffering lrom tbe errors and indiscretions or youth, nervous weakness, early decay, loss ot manhood, etc., I will send a, recipe that will enre, FREE OF CHARGE.
