From Liverpool tiio cable brought easier advices, especially on futures, and this bad some influence; but the main points on which conlideuce was shaken was the receipts at the port., which ran very full, even l-yond the indications at the close ot last week, and cheeked buoj-iiut tendencies. Still, on the other hand, the 'bears' were by no mean free of the timidity which ha pre vented tree short sale at the extreme figures recently reached, and this enabled their op ponents to preserve something of the luto ad vantage and successfully ren'st nny serious decline." The New York U'oWif remarks: l"he defiLiemy in t!ie visible supply, us com- .ared with ust ye;u-, has now reached tlie arge asrvregute ot 7I5.0tJ baU'S, of which 425.UW iwles are Anienran. It will not fail to be not-d that the deficiency in American cotton t xceeds the tailing off in the receipts at the porta by 75,O.i0 bales, a fact which loints to the conclusion th.t in the pool three months the consumption ot American cotton has been 75,0'X bale greater than in the corresponding' period last year. The market exhibited to-day a renewal of that speculative excitement, with wide fluc tuations in prices, that his eharactenMxl bus iness throughout the week." Thl New Or leans picayune adds to the above, in the let ter of il New York correspondent: 'Liver pool came in strorjg and dearer at the opening, but she afii-rward receded on arrivals. Thus tended to hurt, and if Liverpool does not stick when she advances, this market will be apt to fall.

The New York Tribune reports: "In gen eral bus ii ess there has been no great change, though tho tendency is toward improvement.

There was a quiet market for chickens. Dressed turkeys fare badly; alive they were neglected, but came in abundantly. Of provisions, Wednesday's Enquirer said: "There was a large busi ness done in meats, with a fair trade in mess pork and lard, the market showing up rather easier because of the large supply of hogs at the principal points, but prices were not ac tually lower." St. Louis Republican, Wednesday: "Provisions, etc., to-day dull and lower to sell for cash, bnt no disposition on the port of principal packers to make a market at any decline; jobbing and order de mand very quiet."

The levee was full of cotton, seed and other freights yesterday, and the marines were happy, Ttie Alice Brown, with a big tow of coal, passed down yesterday, en route to one of the lower river ports. The Golden Crown, due from" below, had not arrived at dark last night. She may pass up early this morning. The ilattie Nowland did not leave for Ar kansas river yesterday, but is billed to go out for that stream to-morrow evening without fail. Captain W. A. Yore, of the tug; John P. Keiser, rescued a boy from drowning at St. Louis, Tuesday, by jumping into the river and pulling him out. W ill some one rise np and explain that he is not the author of the river news column of the Appeal? We can't see why a matter of so much importance should go unnoticed. During the last trip of the Belle of Texas Captain Harry caused her npper guards to bs cut away, so as to facilitate the carrying of big piles of cotton awaiting shipment out of Whtte river. The boats leaving to-day are the Vint Shinkle, for Cincinnati; Osceola Belle, for Johnson's landing; Grand Tower, for St, Louis; Coahoma, for Friars Point; City of Helena, for Vicksburg. A St. Louis paper says that the strife among the river men at that port is partially at an end, and on Tuesday the rates to New Or leans were raised to 17 cents per hundred pounds and 35 cents per barrel. The City of Chester arrived from RL Louis yesterday afternoon with a big trip, which the discharged at the elevator and retained to St. Louis late last niht, with a lot ot way freight and a number of passengers. The Belle of Texas arrived ont of White river with the 'belle" trip yesterday 1044 baits cotton, 249 sacks seed, 35 head hogs, 110 packages sundries, including a good lot of game, and a number of passengers. The West Wind arrived from the npper coast yesterday, and it is designed to put her in thu St. Francis river trade in place of the Ma-k Twain, which has been found too small to accommoUaie the business eople up that stream. Captain J. B. Randall, Mr. Abrams, the clerk, and the entire crew of the Mark Twain, will go on the West Wind, which leaves on her first trip np St, Francis nver next luesday. The Vint Shinkle, with 350 tons freight, and having regisiered a good list of passen gers on the down trip, arrived yesterday morning, She discharged at the foot of Couit street, and is receiving liberally for the re turn trip this evening. The Jet lie. The St. Louis Times, thus ed:.toriaIJy re bukes a Couple of Cincinnati papers, which have been blindly but vehemently opposing Captain Eads's efforts to secure deep water channels through the mouth of the Missis sippi: "The Cincinnati Gazette chimes in with the Cincinnati Commercial on the jetty question. In face of the most authoritative statements to the contrary, it sees no evidence that 'the jetties will do what Mr. Eads set out to do.'. It has no reason to believe that the present depth to which he has excavated the channel wid be permanent. It cannot understand, although the whole matter has been scienuncally explained a hundred times, why the same shoals that have already been removed should not keep on forming further out, and eventually build up a causeway clear across the gulf ot Mexico. It tails to see what are demonstrated facts, and only aims to institute objections that have no ration al foundation. What possesses these two papers to so persist in misrepresenting results that are already accomplished, ana deprect ating a costly and hazardoua enterprise that tnus lar elands in a heavy loss to the project ors, is something that needs extlanation Captain Eads and his associates, after ful filling to the letter the first stipulation of their contract, were embarrassed lor several months by the non-payment of their first in stallment, ihey nave expended much and made comparativery nothing in the prosecu tion of the work to its present stage. Why is it, that just about the time when a second payment should be made, two ot the leading newspapers in a city that is quite as much interested in tue improvement as any other in the great western valley are found interposing captious objec tions and placing obstacles in the way of its iurmer piosecuuon 1 11 mere was ever a man who deserved well ot his country it is the heroic engineer who has pledged his fortune and reputation to the success of the South pass opening, without hope of fee or reward, until he makes his pledges good; and no criticism is too severe for those whose mer cenary motives or gratuitious malice array them in hostility to one ot the grandest achievements ot the aire.

I have devoted twentv vears of Datient tudy to the Liver and its relations to the hu man body, in search ot a ; remedy which would restore it, when diseased, to its normal condition. The result of that labor has been the production of TUTTS IilVKH PILLS. Their popularity has become so extended, and the demand so great, as to induce unscrupu lous parties to counterfeit them, thereby rob bing me ot the reward, and the afflicted ot their virtues. TO CAlTlOX THE PUBLIC, and protect them from vile impositions have adopted a new label, which bears mj trade-mark and notice of its entry m the Office of the Librarian of Congress, also my signature, tnus: tTo COUNTERFEIT THIS IS FORGEKY.S3J Before purchasing, examine the label closely. TIIE GENUINE TDTT'S PILLS exert a peculiar influence on the system. heir action is prompt, and their good ef fects are felt in a few hours. A quarter of century of study of the Liver has demon strated that it exerts a greater influence over the system than any other organ "of the body, and when diseased tho entire" Organism is deranged. It is especially for the healing of this vital organ that 1 have spent so many year? of toil, and having found the remedy, which has proved tlie greatest boon ever furnished the afflicted, shall they be deprived of the benefits, and a vile imitation imposed upon them? Let tbe honest people of America 8ee to it tiiat they are not defrauded. Scrutinize the label closely; see that it bears all the marks above mentioned, and buy the medicine only from respectable dealers. It can be found everywhere. ' Very respectfully, W. II. TPTT. BR.
