'he demand lir exchapire is sustained by the large purchases of I'nited JStaU-s bond that are making, and by the re moval of important amounts of capital.

V ick8burgerad,lhursday: "lne steamer Mary Bell, destroyed by fire at this Dort on the twenty-sixth of February, 1876, was in sured in the tmpire hre insurance company, but, although proper proof of loss was made, payment for the boat was refused The own ers, Messrs Richard Hicks, Alfred Grissom and Richard Sinott, entered suit in the circuit court of St. Louis county, Missouri, to recover the money, and on Saturday, the twenty fourth, after a brief jury trial, a verdict was returned for plaintiffs for twenty-five hundred dollars and interest, or two thousand six hundred and fifty-five dollars in all." We will bet our bottom dollar that all con cerned in the following tirade on the blissful dead-head system, have seen more geography at somebody else's expense than any other class of people on earth, railroad stokers not excepted: "Will S. Hays, of the Louisville Courier-Journal, is down on the dead-head system, which has prevailed so long on steam boats and railroads. Here is his last para graph on the subject: Ten passengers on a steamboat who pay their fare don't expect half so much for their money as a dead-head does who travels on his shape, talent and a fiee pass.'

This Abstract shows that there are very few perfect titles in Tunica county. Many of them are utterly defective, nnd there are scarcely any that are not clouded by tax-tiiles. In snme Instances I lind that valuable plantations, about the titles of which the holders have enter tained no doubt, are held by titles that would avail nothing before a court, either in prosecuting or de fending a suit in ejectments The detects In these titles may generally be cured If they are ascertained at once and the proiier remedy applied.
