The accident to the ateamer Nellie Peck, which occurred on Saturday last a abort dlsUncc this side of Sioux City, does not appear to have been as serious at at fint re ported. From tbo Sioux City Journal of the 17th we glean the following: The Nellie Peck left the levee Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock and was making as good time as she ever traveled, when at ten minutes to seven in the evening, at a point lust below Snyder'a wood yard, seventeen mtlea above town, in eight feel of water, she pumped onto some hidden obstruction. Just above the wood yard a clearing baa been made along shore, and the river has been digging into the bank and carrying off the stumps, many of which are very large They have been seen floating down stream, and it is supposed to have been one of these upon which the boat struck, as no snag or other obstruction can be found there at all. She rode up onto it, boaring It down to the river bed, and pumped along over it for a distance of twenty feet or so, before it slid off, punching holes through the plank of her bottom and breaking some of her timbers. As soon as tbe water was discovered run ning into the bold, bedding was crowded into the'holes and battened down, the si phon pumps, with which she was well sup plied, set at work, and she was run onto a bar in about three feet of water, so that in case she sank she would not have far to so. The pilot, James Smitb, and clerk, Mr. Dennis at once started for town in the yawl and arrived here about half after ten o'clock. Tbe extent of the damage being then over estimated it was proposed to lake the ferry boat, Undine, to assist In saving the cargo, but it was finally decided to fire up the Pen Inab an4 have her take the load on up ri ver. It was 8 o'clock Sunday morning before the Penlnah was ready to leave. Col. Peck and Col. Akin going up with her. The Nellie was found all right with not a pound of her or go damaged or even wet, the pumps having kept the water un der complete subjection. The Peninab reached her at 10:30 and the work of shift ing tbe load commenced at once. At 11 a. m. yesterday the work wag done and the Peninah started up river and the Nellie Peck back here. The crew of the Nellie was shifted to tbe former, with the excep tion of Capt. Mariner, who retained com mand. Cupt. Johnson of the C. K. Peck, who is a practical ship carpenter, took charge of the Nellie, and Capt. Sims pro ceeded up river with tbe former. The boat had on a $50,000 cargo of Indian supplies, and it was the best ot good fortune and good management that it was not damaged a dollar's worth. The company has sent to Yankton for Its dock and the boat will be entirely repaired this week. It will take a great many stumps to send the Peck line to the bottom. Capt. Wm. Sims has taken command of the C. K. Peek. Capt. Johnson, of the C. K., has been assigned to the superinten dencv of repairs on the Nellie Peck. The steamer O. K. Peck, Wm. Sims mas ter, and Jimmy Keenau clerk, left for up river to-day. Fall stock of lints, caps and gloves just re ceived at I. Piles & Co.'s.

[St. I.ouls Globj-Democrnt, AIIK. The boys were out in force yesterday morning and so for that matter were older people, summoned by the clamor of the band as the circus and menagerie procession wound its way through the streets. There were the big elephants and camels and the per forming lions and the long line of cage* of wild beasta and the gaily caparisoned horses and all the hundred and one attractions of such a procession, in thla case more attractive than usual, for Campbell's grand circus and menagerie opened yesterday on the grounds at Twelfth and Locust streets is really big show and a good one. Despite the haste yesterday afternoon the audience was in the seats and on time and at two o'clock the performances commenced. Previously, though, the audience had wan dered about the great tent containing the menagerie and studied natural history at leisure. There was a good deal to admire, and among the animals some of those not heralded on the bills as the greatest attractions were among the most interesting. The sea cow from the Amazon river, a large animal with queer horns and almost hairless skin, was one of the curiosities. They were engaged yesterday in drenching the almost amphibi ous beast with water, a dry skin being any thing but pleasant to her. The sea-cow is a wonderful swimmer, and tamed ia some times used on the Amazon and its tributa ries for ferrying purposes, swimming before the boat and drawing it as a wagon is drawn on land. Another curiosity in one of the cages is a fine American eik. An elk in this country is not so rare an animal, but the specimen in the menagerie is notable as possessing just now a wonderful pair of horns, and very few have seen an elk bearing his great antlers in their prime. In the specimen on exhi bition the%ntlers are so vast as to be a bur den, and are, in a few weeks, to be sawed off to relieve the animal. A fine specimen of the vicious-looking horned horse or gnu, one which attracted much attention in New York, is another feature of the show. It is a queer looking animal, this horned horse, and appears as though it might in its native wilds be an unpleasant one to meet. There are some very fine lions, a great Bengal tiger, a beau tiful spotted leopard, hyenas, monkeys and other animals to numerous to mention in the menagerie, and the audience yesterday found no little entertainment in this depart ment of the show. The circus proper is given under a fine tent, aud as fine an exhibition in its field as the menagerie. The performing elephant Empress proved herself the equal in tier line of any elephant now seeking the plaud its of the public. The riding was excellent, andwas some what notable for the number of lady riders, and prettv ones. Miss. Linda eal,the only lady hurdle-rider, executed some daring feats, and Miss Bosa Lee, and others showed to aboot equal advantage. Miss Alta Hall ette was at home on the trapeze, the male riders were excellent in their specialties, and the clowns were as amusing to young folks as clowns will always be as long as they have awfully painted faces and leap about and make grimaces. As a whole the tha show is a good one, has the advantage of being backed by plenty of money, is well managed and is a good place to go with children. One ticket admits to both circus and menagerie. At last night's entertainment the audience was a grand one, and duringtfie performance fine bouquets were presented to Misses Bosa Lee, Alta Halleite apu Linda Jeal. The audience was vocifaxiiis in its applause. Old papers fo/sale at this office. PROMPT REFORM OF BODILY EVILS. The prompt reform of those bodily evils, en feebled digestion, incomplete assimilation, inac tivity of the liver, kidneys and Madder, as well as of the nervous symptoms which these ail inents arc espscially prone to beget, is always ac complished by the use of Hostatter's Stomach Bitters, a medicine accredited by physicians, pronounced pure by analysts, aud emiuently wlioiesome and agreeable. Surely such a resto rative is preferable to unpalatable and indigest ible mineral drugs and unsanctioned nostrums. The nation at large assuredly thinks so, judging by the unprecedented demand for the article from Maine to the Pacific, a demand now sup plemented by immense orders for it received from tropical America, Mexico, the British and Spanish Colonial possessions, and elsewhere' Both at home and abroad it is recognized as a standard remedy and preventive, tbe decisive ness of its effects recommending it everywhere.
