Up-river steamboat clerks chew wax for pastime. The Andy Baum sails for the Ohio this evening. Captain Gould's Gold Dust passes down for New Orleans to-day. The A. J. Baker leaves Cairo for New Or leans with 81 z heavily laden barges. The weather was pretty yesterday, not withstanding the rain which fell just before daylight. The trial of the "universal propeller" on the tug Rescue, at St. Louis, Wednesday, was not satisfactory. A Cairo dw patch says the steamer James Fisk broke her shaft while between that place and Mound City last night, and was towed to Cairo by a tug. The Capitol City, for Vicmburg, took out thirty tons way freights; and the Grand Tower, for St. Louis, took away 765 bales cotton for the east. The Church passed down last night with 1100 tons freight for New Orleans. She got 2000 sacks corn and 51 head of stock below Cairo, and added a lot of sundries here. A hog got loose on the levee at Cincinnati the other day, and after being chased an hour or two was about to yield to bis captors at the water's edge, but getting sight of a river editor, immediately plunged into the river and drowned itself. 1'oor hog! The Ruth arrived frora White river yetor di j morning with as much as she could tcts, and returned in the evening' with a big re turn trip ot both freight and paHsenjicrs. Jimmy Maloughney, an enterprising young genius, supplies the marine fraternity down about the levee with the Cincinnati, St. Louis, Louisville, and other dailies, fresh from the press. Jimmy is trustworty, and deserves encouragement. Captain James Reese, jr., of the Hattie Nowland. returned yesterday from a visit to Pittsburg, the Cincinniti and Louisville papers say, to try to get married, but we don't believe it would require much effort for as goor'-'ooking a fellow as the captain is to get married anywhere; and from what we can learn he has only to drop the hat and th thing is accomplished up Arkansas river. If we are misinformed about this, we apoloiz'j without further notice. The St Louis papers got to blowing aWout "a new thing" in the shape of ai iron stage about sixty feet long uied on oaf of tue whartboats there, when our Cairo ueighbor "showed up" that one of the "new things" had been in use there for lo these many months. Can it be possible that Cairo is get ting ahead of St. Louis?. If it is only an iron stage-plank that mirks her superior progress, it's too bad to have ''the fcitore great" stand ing in tha shadow of the modern Egyptian capital. The recent addition to the marine chroni cler fraternity who perjwtuates the annals of the wave, so to speak, through the columns of the St. Louis Evening Post, is greatly ex ercised over the future career of the new steamer Alice at least, he wants to know to what trade she will be assigned after the present trip from Pittsburg to New Orleans is completed. When the Alice returns to Memphis we will get the affidavits of the captain, clerks and bar-tender on the subject. and forward them to our new friend of the Pott, and thus put an end to vexata quiestio. The Washington correspondent of the Cin cinnati Enquirer says this of some of the features of the new steamboat bill pending before congress: "Very few amendments have been made, or even proposed to the bill as reported from the committee. The most important action Tuesday had reference to the fees for license and certificates to masters and others. The commerce committee had reduced the tees twenty per cent, and pro posed to enact that each master, chief-engineer and firet-class pilot licensed should pay eight dollars for every certificate, and every chief-mate, engineer and pilot of infe rior grade should pay four dollars for every certificate. Representatives of steamboat and navigation interests generally, however, still regard this tex as excessive. Mr. Marsh. of Illinois, offered an amendment to afford relief from so much expenditure, and Messrs. Cox and Sayler, of Ohio; Ittner and Critten den, of Missouri; Willis, of Kentucky, and other gentlemen, argued that this license fee was an onerous personal tax, and a direct impost upon labor and industry, and of such a character as was not imposed upon any other industry. As a result of this discus sion, followed by the exhibition of memorials and petitions on the subject, the section was amended so as to provde that for first certifi cates masters, chief-engineers and first-clas pilots snail pay eight dollars, aud cbiet mates, engineers and pilots of inferior srrade, four dollars, but that for every subsequent certificate granted by the inspectors to either of the above classes of officers the fee shall be one dollar only. This amendment was adopted by such a decisive majoritv that no one will be likely to make an attempt in the future progress of the bill to reverse this ac tion. It is thought the bill will reach the commerce committee of the senate before the end of the week." JEWELRY. GIKGEB TONIC.
