At the opening of busi ness a demonstration was made against the list on account of the fire at Minneapolis and exciting rumors about trouble at Chicago, it being reported that the communists had risen, and that the ty was in charge of a vigilance committee. It was not long before the report was found to bo false, and that there was no trouble there. The whole business was evidently started in Wall street for speculative pur poses.

The cost, as compared with yesterday, was higher, the 'bulls' having gained a little ad Tan tape on the tenor of tne foreign advices, which gave Liverpool a Bbade steadiwr tone, and aUo seemed to indicate that the M:ttle znent of difficulties between the masters and operators in the spinning districts was proba ble at an earlier day than shown on previous reports. There was, however, no demand stimulated from business sources calculated t5 infuse fresh vigor into business, or ait! the movement for a rise, and operation had much the appearance of the systematic ma nipulation to which the market has so long been subject. The principal attention was given to May and June, and these months held the otners np. The weather at the south is repotted good, as a rule, and plant ing progressing favorably."

Times, 30th: "We are ratified to learn that our citizans are at last taking the navigation of Pearl river in hand, and are evincing a de termination which is indicative of 8UC' cess. The Stedmau has played an important part in demonstrating the practicability of succes8lully navigating toe river aoove jaca son, but she is not a suitable boat adequate to the demands of the trade. Captain fc. M, Broadwell formerlv commander ot the famous Mississippi river steamboat Eclipse, and of large experience in tne navigation 01 inou- tary streams, was in Jackson to-day nego tiating with our leading bankers and mer chants, with a view to purchasing a steamer capable of carrying tour or hve hundred bales ot cotton. Ihe captain proposes to take 1 half interest in the boat, provided that one half the Block is subscribed by citizens of Jackson. Ihe two banks of the city, one attorney-at-law. six merchants and one man- acturer promptly subscribed the sum of $1850, and no difficulty about raising the amount is anticipated. The project is with out question a practical one, and when car ried into effect will ereatlv enhance the trade ot Jackson, and prove ot vast beneht to Carth age and all the country adjacent to the river tor about two hundred miles above Jackson Captain Broadwell expresses entire confidence in the success of the enterprise, and is more than willing to risk his capital and time-in its development. New Orleans Picayune. Wednesday: les terday, immediately upon the organization of the grand jury tor the United states circuit court, Judge E. C. Billings called their at tention to tne tact that on several occasions the public journals had charged that a de liberate attempt had been made to thwart the measures adopted by congress to improve the navigation of the Mississippi river bv jetties, lt was charged that unknown parties naa wantonly sunt vessels within tne arti ficial channel made by the jetties. The learned judge observed that the importance ot these jetties and the significance ot the in jury, not only to the commerce ot the city, but to the commerce ot the world trading with it, could hardly be overstated. Such wanton acts imperiled human life. In the opinion of the court the statutes covered the case, ihe jurors were authorized, as an in quest of the United States government, to in quire thoroughly into the matter. They should investigate, first, where such acts had been committed, and, second, by whom. They should not scruple to have brought before them all parties, high or low. who could shed any light upon the subject, to the end that the perpetrators of such high-handed outrage againBt the law, as well as against humanity, might be brought to a speedy and condign punishment. United States District Attorney Lacey has taken great interest in this affair, and is already summoning wit nesses to appear before the grand iurv. He is determined t) investigate the matter to its very bottom, in order that the interests of our people may not be jeopardized by lawless men, who, for their own selfish advantage, have not hesitated to commit a very grave offense."
