Alton is fust, lives' hrgb,' and hag officers,
who nnderstand their business. Passage
can be engaged at flic lynifin Tk.-k.et of

Tli I.ibertV- "was advertised to leave
Louiaville last everting for this port, ' If
the Ohio contiunea to'fall, the Laura
Fentou will tuke the place of the Liberty
during' the low stage of water.
The Nangntuck got aground at Porti
land at.three o'clock Sandny evening,
and was still there on Monday night .
" Tlin. Minneola 'passed Lor.t'sville on
Min:!avV bound fur this port, with twd
barges in tw, and nine hundred tons of
freighfon herself and barges.
A Jecir hand, named John Lippick,
fell ovarW.T-d from the Edinburg, neat
Cinciaiihtjis-'t eight, and was drowned.
The Mississippi and Clara Dolson are
loading, .at St- Lonia for New Orleans,
and the.Minnie for Fort Smith. "
The Morning Star, owing to the unusu
al low stage of water in the Lower Ohio,
has been' laid 'tip for the season. J The
Ella Faber, a neat, light-draught boat,
takes her place, aad was to leave Louis
ville for this port, on Tuesday evening,
in charge of Captain Dollis and the oth
er officers of the Star. 1 ,1
' " The following boats, formerly belong
ing to the Johnsonville racket Company,
were sold by the Sheriff st St Louis on
Tuesday : Milbry, for Jo,80Q; Louifa,
f.r $5,100, and War Eagle, $3,400, to
Conrad Fink. Captain David White
bought the G. McC Porter, for the sum
of $2,300. The North Alabama was sold
to Ei Wider, of the firm of Lock wood
t Wi Jer, for 113,000. M. Strauss bought
the remainder, comprising the Lanra, at
(o.OOO, Leonora, at $1,910, M. Burns, at
$o,900, Fanny Barker, at $7,500, and C.
J. Caffrey, at $10,100. The Home, also
advertised to be sold yesterday, was
" bonded out," and in consequence the
sale was deferred. The Silver Wave will
be sold on Monday, the 30th. The Spray,
also of the same line, ia now ia the
hand's '6f ther United fltfctes- Marshal at
Pittsburg,, ..We understand that immedi
ately afjer the sale an attachment to toe
amount of $7,500 was levied on toe G.
Mc(J. Porter, , at the suit of tie parties
who raised the boat when 'sunk at the
railroad bridge across the Tennessee.
Tho Ontario, bonnd'to St Loois from
the Upper Missouri, broke her shaft, and
Captain Dave Haney laid ber up at
Soatb Point. J The Captain has arrived
at St Louis, to make arrangements to
have the Ontario towed to that port s
The St Louis Democrat of yesterday
gays tlu terrible beat of these days is
licking up the rivers with rapidity. A
continued decline proceeds in the Illi
nois, Missouri and Upper Mississippi, and
we have to add that the big boats are be
ing hurried out and produce being har
ried down, because there are only nine
feet of water to Cairo and nine feet at
Plum Point, below Cairo, and falling
rapidly. - A revolution is going en iu
steambouting, similar to that which oc
curs pnee or twice every year, aa a ne
cessity upon the recurrence pf low water.
Light draught steamers, nnd most -decidedly
those that tow well, are in demand.
The demand is rnpidlyTnerensing:" An
idle barge will hardly be found in a week
or two. Business was pretty brisk yes
terday.' ' - ' I - .
Steamboat Pristine. We respectfully
ask our stearoeoat friends to call and ex
amine the specimens of fine steamboat
printing daily executed at the Pobi.IC
Ledokr office." Onr pViees will be found
to compare favorably with hose of Cin
cinnati or St Louis, and to be greatly
below those asked by other city offices.
Bring your orders directfy to nS, and
save the commission charged by parties
who take in work they are not prepared
to execute. ' : t
