English sparrow's, the deadly enemies to insects, have been imported into Lou isville, where houses havo been prepared for them.

The St. Joseph Infirmary, on Jefferson street, and under charge of the Good Sisters of St. Dominique, is the only plnce in the city where our young men who have no homes can receive careful attention and good nursing when sick.

The United States Assessor has de cided that picnics most hereafter pay for bar privileges. The parties who set up hart on picnic days pay for bar privileges in the city where they do busi ness, but tho Assessor regards doing business on the picnic grounds as a new. departure, and consequently is descrv- ing of a special tax.

Danrerens Condition ortno Doeka -A Total Los of tle Hecttona la feared. Last evening the sunken sections ap peared two feet above water, but last night they sank rapidly and succeeded in dragging down the center sections so far that the water rushed into the engine roomB and put out the Jlres. The barges attached to the sunken soctions were unable to bear the additional strain and were swamped. This forenoon the wreck ing boats Salvor No. 2 and Submarine No. 14 were lashed on either side of the sections and were preparing to attach their powerful pumps. It is hoped that the efforts of the two powerful boats will be crowned with success before night, and that they will he enabled to force out a sufficient amount of water to raise the sections again above the sur face. If tho wrecking boats are unable to accomplish this task the two lower sections will have to be cut loose and will become a total loss, inflicting a loss on the owners of the docks to the mount of at least $10,000. Sunday School Union. The late Sunday School celebration at Court Square has given an impetus to Sunday School affairs in this city. A union of nil the Protestant bunday Schools of the city (excepting the Epis copal schools) has been organized, with Henry Craft, Esq., as President; Ben. May, Esq., Treasurer; N. W.

I Object." There is an indefatigable legal indi vidual who attends tho Recorder's Court matinee daily, who is known by the cabalistic words, "I object." Our legal worthy has an extensive negro practice, and whenever one of his compatriots and clients is on trial the attorney regularly interrupts the examination with the words, "I object." When called upon to state his objection, he seldom has any legal or plausible ex cuse, but yet he continues to "utter the terrible words, " I object." During the progress of tho cnuse, and even when the negro is, found guilty and fined, you can hear a discordant voice crying out faintly, " I object." . Kellffloua Notieea. . Rev. S. II.

June 17. lK71.il TRADE to-day is moderate in all branches a.'nd more active than for several days pa st. There is no marked change to note in the provision market to-day; prioes, though weak at other points, are believ ed to have reached their lowest point here. Mess pork is quoted dull at $16 00 to the trade, but we doubt. -whether more than $lfi could "je realized on round lots. Ba con clear sides have been sold at 9 cash to dealers, but are hold at 9c in lots; clear rib is in light demand only at 9c; shoulders are quiet at 7c. The move ment in grain is less active and the re ceipts largely in excess of the demand. Over 2000 sacks of corn, a small portion of which was ear-corn, was offered on 'Change to-day at le below the asking prices of yesterday; dealers seem to be afraid yet to take hold liberally, and are purchasing barely enough to supply im mediate wants; Bales were 72 sacks white shelled new gunnies at 71c, 75 do. extra choice at 72 Jc, and 100 sacks white ear at 07c. The movement in oats is light and prices unchanged; Clc was the ask ing price on 'Chunge; 100 sacks white were, however, sold at 03c. Bran is in light supply and moderate request; sales on 'Change were 1G0 sacks at $25 50 and 50 do. at $25 50. Hay is in light demand and moderate supply; prices ore firm at $21 to $22 for choice timothy.

VOVKT, The money market presents no new features for comment to-duy. The de mand for accommodations is moderately active but comes principally from that class whose paper is rated Becond class at the banks. Short date notes having from thirty to sixty days to run, when strictly "gilt-edge," are discounted readily by the banks at 10 per cent., but aside from this the rates are from 1 to 1 per cent, per month. In the open market it is difficult to obtain loans ex cept upon collaterals or good endorse ments, rates on the same being 1 to 2 per cent, per month. The volume of exchange making is small but fully equal to if not in excess of the demand. Rates are Bteady at par for cotton bills and Jc premium for Eastern bank exchange. Selling rates are firm at Jc premium on Eastern and Northern points and Jc discount to par on New Orleans. Gold is in fair demand at 111, but offerings are small and transactions light. -The opening rate at New York was 1 12 1 and closing rate at noon 112. Local securities are quiet with some improvement in the demand for city in debtedness and railroad shares. Tennessee-money is in fair demand at R4c and is sold in a smnll way at PC to 87c over the counter for the old issue. Very little is being done in the new issue and rates are nominal at 39 to 40c. Missis sippi warrants are in demand at 69 to 70c and are held at 75c; there are but few in the market, however, and none offering. County warrants aro in re quest at 74c and are sold at 75c, Mem phis and Charleston railroad shares are in demand at 36 to 36jc and it is stated thnt 37c was refused on a round lot yes terday. Mississippi and Tennessee rail way shares are in demand at 19 to 20c with none offering. Little Rock railroad shares were on the market to-day at 20c without any transactions. The move ment in Government bonds seems to be improving. Two $100 5-20s, new issue, were sold by a dealer this morning at 115 and one $500 5-20 was bought yes terday in New York nt 114L Railroad bonds are firm with a fair demand and prices are steady. COTTON. New York closed firm last night at 20jc for middling and opened strong at the same price to-day. Sales yesterday were 525 bales at irregular prices, mid dling gelling at 20c. To-day there is a fair demand, but the views of sellers and buyers are so far apart that but little has been done. Buyers assert that there is scarcely any desirable cotton offering, and even a thorough search of the mar ket would fail to bring to light more than one or two tables. Sales np to noon were 100 bales at a basis of 20c for middling, 19Jc for low middling, 18c for strict good ordinary, and 17c for good ordinary. Ordinary ranged from 15 to 161c.

The river has fallen four inches dur ing tho past twenty-four hours and is now twenty-three feet eleven inches be low high water mnrk of 1H67. A rise has set in nt Cairo, but the river is fall ing at St. Louis with every prospect of a steady decline. The Ohio is falling at all points and has less than five feet of water over the shoals below Evans ville. Henvy rains are reported above and beloVlitst night, which may check the decline here until the rise from the Missouri, which is now passing Cairo, reaches us. A heavy rain set in here shortly after midnight and the water poured down in torrents until after day light, effectually cleaning the streets and lauding. It is now cloudy and damp with a prospect of more water before night. Business is dull. The Richmond passed down this morning well luden. Nat Green, al though he got a ducking, was in excel lent spirits. A Vicksburg exchange says: " The Bigley Brothers have sold their entire stock of coal, fixtures and splendid outfit at this place to Mattingly, Flowerree & Co., who will continue the business as in the past." A case was decided in the Superior Court yesterday, says the Cincinnati Times and Chronicle of the 14th, in reference to liability for insurance on a steamer whose policy permitted it to navigate certain rivers. Judge Storer decided that if a steamer had made a safe voyage in certain other rivers than those named in the policy, and was afterwards destroyed in one of the rivers named, the owner could not recover on the policy. The Columbia, Nightingale and Celeste are due from the Arkansas. The Nightingale, Captain Piersel, will pass up at noon to-morrow for Louis ville and Cincinnati. W. B. Piersel commands. At noon to-day the situation at the dry docks was unchanged. Captain Walker still thinks he can raise them, and if energy or perseverance will ac complish anything he will have them up. We fear, however, that the under taking is too great for the facilities. All are, however, doing their utmost. The Celeste is the regular Monday mail packet for the Arkansas and way landings. anaatalsiseeasaesssSBs John Shllivan, Esq., the handsome and clever secretary of tho Belle Lee, is in the city. The R. C. Gray, from Louisville to the Arkansas river, knocked a hole in her hull at Scuflletown bar day before yes terday and took in about two feet of water, but stopped the leak and pro ceeded to Evansville where she entered protest. Captain Wm. J. Ashford will, at five p.m. to-day, back out theThos. H. Allen for Devall's Bluff, Jacksonport and all the landings on White river. She is the regular United States mail packet, and will make direct connection with the Littlo Rock train. Mr. E. W. Outlaw is clerk. The Grand Tower, Captain Lennox, is at the St. Louis wbarfboat, and will leave at five p.m. for Cairo and St. Louis. Mr. James White is her execu tive officer, and those who place them selves nnder his charge for the trip may rely on a good time. The gay little steamer Geo. W. Cheek, Captain Mark Cheek master, gets away at five o'clock this evening for Helena and Friar's Point. Frank Gonterman is her clerk. A Washington telegram of the ICth says: " The changes in the regulation for the Government officers of steam ves sels, recently made by the Board of Su pervising Inspectors of Steamboats, do not go into effct until June 1, 1872." What the changes are is not known. We glean the following items from Thursday's Cincinnati Commercial: There will be an interesting row-bout race on Saturday, at 5 p.m., lor $50 a side. Distance, from the city buth-boat to Dayton, Kentucky, and return, about five miles. A half million dollars worth of ore lays npon the bank near St. Lonis await ing shipment to Pittsburg, Wheeling, Ironton, Cincinnati, and other Ohio river towns. Mr, V. C. Dentzel, of the New Orleans Picayune, left for Baltimore yesterday. The rates to New Orleans have been advanced to 40 cents on pound lots, $1 tor through, and f I.zj per barrel lor way points, and $1.25 for whisky. The Charles Bodmnnn was towed to Covington yesterday from the foot of iiroadway. Pilot Moses Kirkpatrick has received the appointment of Inspector of Snags and Obstructions in the Ohio river lroin Cincinnati to Cairo. He left for Louis ville on Tuesday, where -he joins tho Greenback. The City of Vicksburg, Carter master, will pass down at five p.m. to-day for Vicksbnrg ond the bends. The good steamer Minneola, Captain Miller commanding, will get away at five o'clock this evening for Cairo, Louis ville and Cincinnati. Mr. J. S. Jones is her purser. Captain Claxon informs ns that on Thursday night of last week, tho tug boat J. R. Piatt, was burnt on the Ken tucky river, four miles above Sand Rillle, a point where a bridgo is building, and to which, during the day, she hnd towed a flat-boat lond of lumber. After land ing and making fast, putting out the fires, etc., the crew left tho boat for the night. They returned in the morning to find the charred remains of the flat and lumber, but the tug-bout was nowhere to be seen, nor had she up to yesterday been heard Irom. She doubtless drifted out inty the stream and sunk, but just where had not been ascertained. The Piatt belonged to a Mr. Wolf, of Frank lin county, who purchased her recently of Mr. L. Harrod. She was purchased some three years since of Cnptain I'ink Vnrblo for $1200. Louisville Ledger, 10A. STEjAJVI BOATS. For Cinelnnnti. Dean Line The elegant passenger steamer MIXiVEOLA JJE W. B.
