The Thanksgiving holiday of Thursday did
not brighten matters yesterday; business was the
dullest or any or (he rast ten days, and our reports
have little change of Interest. Tile weatbrr was
sunny and pleasant, but the demand for merchan
dise was poor. The SL Louis krjt'iKiran, ot Wednes
day, reports a larger arrival of corn without a com
mensurate demand and the market was a declining
one, prices reaching the lowest values since 1801.
The Chicago Tribune, of Tuesday, reports dull pro
duel markets, "t:o much stuff" was the complaint;
provisions again ylelc.ed to tee pressure; wheat was
d (pressed; corn and oats were heavy." The New York
Hni'rhn, of Tuesday, says: "lhe market for hog
Products tne past week has sllown a still further
downward tendency without signs of reacdan at the '
close." Tne Chicago Tribune quietly but slgnlll
cantly observed, on Tuesday: "There ts something
wrong In the whisky oeal. The majority of distillers
keep on quoting sales on the basis of SI 00 per gal
lon tor hlghwlnes, while wines ate offered elsewhere
at $1 04, with reported sales now and then at that
figure." The Cincinnati Tradi-MM says: "There
are one bund'ed vessels at New Orleans clamoring
for cargoes ot grain In bulk for Kurope. St. Louis
Is already shipping large quantities, and the corn
growers of the Ohio valley have every prospect for
good crops and good prices."

The United States boat Oetavla passed up yester
day morning with a party of United States engin
eers, who have been taking a look at tue river be
tween Cairo and Lake Providence. The names of
the gentlemen who compose this party are General
Wright, General Comstock, General Leach, General
Bernard, Major 8uter and Major Haudbury. Con
gress Is expected at Its next session to make an ap
propriation looking to the Improvement of the chan
nel of the Mississippi, and these gentlemen
"bosses" thought it best to examine the river them
selves. Instead of sending their subordinates.
New Orleans Demoerat: "The Henry Frank Is the
largest sternwheel boat on the river, and pilots in
handling her have to exert considerable muscular
power, and In order to assist, one of the roustabouts
Is selected to stand a watch at the wheel. On one
cccaslon, during her last trip, a big, brawny fellow,
black as Ink, was at the wheel, and as she was mak
ing a crossing he was told lo hold her hardrand was
asked if he could do It. 'Yes. boss,' was his confident
reply, 'I'll hold her or pull out one of dese handles.'
Just at that moment, her rudders getting oft the cen
ter, the wheel got the best of the sable steersman,
and though holding on to it as if be had a possum
by the tall, be was thrown up against the sash,
breaking several panes of glass. The tblng was
done so suddenly that it was several moments before
he could recover hlraself, and his eyes fairly bulged
out of their sockets as he aked, stutterlngly, 'Boss,
what did she hit? Is anybody kilt?' When he re
turned below he was heard to say: 'I kin tote seed,
roll cotton and git away wld a woodpile, and sit rest;
but dat wheel up dar. It do make a nigger work, fur
sho'.' The cargo of the Frank amounted to nineteen
hundred tons, and she was drawing nine feet for
ward and seven feet aft; her guards were tieen
Inches from the water la tho deepest place. With
her cotton-seed, oil-cake and six thousand bales of
cotton aboard, she lelt Greenville drawing seven and
a half feet. A wonderful boat, surely."

We have the names of parties and when burled.
But In cases where more than one person was burled
during the eDldemlo. on the same lot. we cannot
designate each Individual grave. I will be thankful
to relatives and friends, when visiting the Cemetery,
and when convenient, that they will call on me at
my onice, at tne Norm gate, ana give me tne infor

holding lots in Elmwood, to give me all the sslst
