When the war con ference tueeU in Europe its decision will make a chantre. The silver bill has made a change, although it U,t present, little per ccptib'.e on the surface. A muttering of a coming i-to nil is already heard in the com plaint that, while certain banks have paid out Mexican dollars at one hundred cents on the dollar, the banks generally refuse to re ceive tiieni ut more than ninety-five cents to the dollar. The complaint is uteles. for in descending from a certain rate of value in currency to a lower rate, the public must of necessity lose tLe difference. True, the cred itor alio loses the same difference, but the debtor when he receives the lower value must lose on it to the same extent as the creditor to whom he pays it away after it has come into his hands. The matter will regulate it self in the end by debtor and creditor stand ing on the same basis. There was a free re ceipt cf exchange at the usual quotations discount buying, and If premium selling on New York; New Orleans ibuying at, discount, selling at par.

The weather yesterday was like the . pre ceding days, warm and pleasant. Business was rather duller, and was mostly confined to jobbing. Corn meal is strong, and in active demand. Ccrn remains unchanged, but in light request. The St. Louis Republi can, 01 luc3day, speaking ot wheat, says : "Wheat samples were unchanged, but grades unsettled and fluctuating consequently, but closing stronger for cash aud futures," yet with no active trading. For No. 2 red win ter fl 13 was bid, and none offered for the reason that there has been none, nor is any to offer; but No. 3 sold at $1 091 09, and had 1 10 bid at the afternoon board, while No. 4 sold a tall 011 01 f, and rejected at 90(i91c; spring was in rather better demand and tending upward, No. 2 selling at f 1 03 1 but closine with the former bid; held higher for the month, with $1 03 bid in the afternoon, and still higher for April." rroui the same paper we learn that oats were in fair demand and a shade firmer, but with no development of the mar ket of significance.

All packets leaving yesterday had good trips out. The City of Helena had a fair trip on when she passed up yesterday. The Future City and barge3 passed down for New Orleans at dark last night without landing. A special notice, printed elsewhere, states that the Hattie Nowland will leave lor Ar kansas river at noon to-day. The balmy sunshine yesterday awakened all the laziness of man's nature, and snooz- era were numerous on the levee. The Mollie Moore left off 300 barrels plas- ter-of-pan's as she passed np for St. Louis yesterday. She had a good load on. lhe U. 1 . Schenck crave us the shake as she passed down yesterday. She did not con ceal the fact, however, that she was loaded nac on the water. The James D. Parker left for the Ohio last night with 670 bales cotton, 515 barrels oil, 10 bales rags, 10,000 cane-poles, a lot of way freight, 35 cabin and 28 deck passengers. lhere will be no Anchor-liner leavinsr lor St.Louis to-day, no boat having been assigned to duty in the Chester's place yet.

Macomb works to St. Louis and the DeRussv to Memrhis. Bar ney Train is pilot of the John N. Macomb, and lien razer 01 the uetlussey. Little nock Gazette, Tuesday: Captain Alex Waddell, of the Memphis and Arkansas river packet company, has secured the ser vices of Lew H. Briggs, late of the steamer J. G. Fletcher, to aid and assist him in re ceiving on the levee and reshipping the com pany's freight. A good selection, as Mr. Briggs is familiar with all the duties required of him." After absorbiner the cream of all that has been said and written by distinguished di vines and profanes concerning hell and the hereafter, it is a saddening reflection that after a while the busy brain will rest from all ite toil and pain; after a while earth's rush will cease, and the wearied heart find sweet release; after a while a vanished face, an empty seat, a vacant place; after a while we 11 be forgot a crumbling headstone, an unknown spot. ViCKsburcr Herald. Tuesday: "The burn ing of the Anchor-line steamer City of Ches ter was not nearly so awful a catastrophe as the Memphis papers reported. Captain Zeigler held the boat at the Memphis elevator unui nearly au tne passengers got on, and but two lives were lost." We do not wish to revive the horrible casualty of the ill-fated City of Chester, nor do we wish to intimate censure for the act of cutting the burning boat loose to save the elevator and ite con tents; but the Appeal's report of the disas ter was as nearly correct astt waa possible to make it from personal observation and from the statements of Captain Zeigler, Clerk Deitrich and others, and not one word of it has been contradicted. The number of lives lost, as far as it is kown at present, was three: Hernan, the postal agent; lirown, the colored barber; and Zeller, the Memphian, who took passage at St. Louis to return to this city. When neither the captain nor the clerk could state positively how many pas sengers were aboard th6 Uhester, it is not known whether any more lives were lost. HAIR BALSAM.
