There is so much mys tery, impenetrable mystery, connected wiyi the homicide that in vain the mind seeks to penetrate the true incidents con Mnl! With the crime. ' Three mfen, Vn Roberts, Savage and Sullivan, are seated nt a table with Ada Jones, up stairs in Marre's saloon. All parties are more or less intoxicated. The woman diuap' pears; the men leave together, and early next rooming the body of Ada Jones is found lying dead oa the outer gallery, a pistol ball having plowed through her? ,Jieart.'Did sha commit, suicide, or wns she murdered, and by whom? These are grave questions, at present undergoing investigation by the jury of our Criminal Court, and we do not re gard it as our province to express an opinioq on th subject while such inves tigution is progressing. It is more mys terious and sensational than the Nathan murder in New York, and, like it,' is purjlyl circumstantia as to evidence, no direct proof os against any person having 'appeared.' It is in evidence that Ada Jones had threatened to kill herself, and it is also in evidene that tho patent derringer found near the body belonged to Van Roberts. After tho three men 'Van Roberts wont to Mr Flyu's, where Ada Jones boarded, and inquired if she (Ada Jones) had returned, lie also went to Marre's saloon and inquired for her, nnd early next morn' ing was seen in tho alley immediately benenth the gallery where tho body of the dead woman wns lying. The inci dents of the case, as presented before the Criminal Court, are familiar to our readers, and as it progresses before the jury' the deep mystery of the "taking off" has not been cleared up. No one seems to be able to lift tho vail that hangs heavily before the dead woman. Nothing appears in tho garish, melo dramatic lights except three men sitting in a half drunken state at n table, and a woman shot through the heart, lying dead out on the gallery. i i .

The market closed weak yesterday, with sales of 150 bales at about the quo tations given in our last report.

There is but littlo change in the streams above. The river is stationary at Cairo, with about twelve feet below and falling at St, Lonis, with nearly nine feet out. Tho upper Mississippi is station ary, with a slight rise expected. The Ohio is falling at Evansville, is station ary at Louisville,' and has risen nearly three feet at Cincinnati. White and the Arkansas rivers are low. A heavy rain has fallen along the latter within the lost two days, however, which may im prove its channel depth. Business at the landing is somewhat dull and the weather cool and cloudy. The Thos. H. Allen goes out on Satur day for White river. ' The gallant little mail steamer fieo. W. Cheek, Mark Check master, will back out at ' five p.m. ' to-day' for Helena Friar's Point and all way points. Frank Gonterman is clerk. The reliable steamer Fort Gibson will depart at five p.m. to-morrow tor Pine Bluff, Little Rock and all way points on the Arkansas, ' ' J ' i i Captain Reeso Dugan, of the T. F. Eckert, returned last evening from the wreck of the J. 8. Dunham, and reports that her hull was imbedded in the sand and mud nearly to her guards, and that there is'enongh sand on 'her deck to raise the Little Rock railroad a foot or so. Mon are at work upon her, nnd he expapts to get her out when the river gets lower. , . . Captain J. W. Blake has chartered the stonmer Bertha to take the place of the Lizzie Hopkins in the New Orleans and Ouachita river trade. ' i Tho Spray, from Cincinnati to this port, will pass Louisville to-day. A St. Lonis exchange Bays the R. J. Lockwood will get fonr hundred bales of cotton nt Jefferson nnd five hundred at 8hreveport, to be transported to New York via St. Louis. The Belle Memphis is being thoroughly overhauled. She is to havn new boilers and Cylinders, and every unsound plank and timber in her is to be removed and replaced with new onos. Heavy rains have fallen along the Cumberland and Tennessoe rivers as well ns in the lower portions of Illinois and Indiana. An improvement in the depth of the water in tho Ohio is confi dently expected. The Belle Yazoo has been "hogging a stump" opposite Vicksbnrg ever since tho storm carried her chimneys away some months ago. She will probably run in the Yazoo trade this full. She re ceived new chimneys on Saturday. A few days since negotiations were pending between Captain John Cannon and Captain Fowler for the'snbstitution of the Idlcwild in tho place of tho Rob ert E. Lee while tho latter is being re paired. Captain Fowler telegraphed Captnin Cannon on Saturday, n.skiug him how long he wanted her, and what would he pay. ...... The Benrdstown, destined for Galves ton, Texas, will pass down about one week from Friday. She will go to Red river and up that stream twenty miles; along the Atchafala'ya to Berwick's Bay, into Vermillion Bay, will remain there two days, iand thence proceed to Sabine river and Galveston harbor. Tuesday's Cincinnati Commercial has the following items ; ' Capt. Stant. J. Bntchnlor. late of the Potomac, has taken charce of the office of the Ohio No. 4, nnd is assisted by Ham. A. uunbar and Uoorge Keener. Yesterday morning Mai. C. S. Hart. clerk of the steamer Nashville, was ar raigned before the Police Court on the charge of assaulting Jerry Johnson, bar keeper on the same boat. He tjleaded guilty, And wns .fined ten' dollars ami costs. Just as he was leaving the Court room he was again arrested by Deputy United States Marshnl Lew Martin, on the charge of opening a letter not ad dressed to him, and taking therefrom a a sixty-dollar bond. Tho affidavit on which the arrest was mado was sworn ont by Johnson. Hart was taken before United states Commissioner llalliday, where he gave bail for his future appear ance. . An Evansville telegram says: Just as tho Bowling Green was enter ing tho lock at Spottsville, on Sunday morning, the lower lock gnve way, and left hor on the ground. , Sho has ninety hogsheads of tobacco, and cannot move until tho lock is repaired. ' , , ; Yesterday's St. Loui3 Democrat has the following: Consolidation is not a nroner word to designate the New Orleans packet ar rangement. It is merely an arrange ment whereby a boat of each line loads alternately here nnd At New Orleans. This merely puts a quietus upon compe tition and revives the dormant feoli nus of friendship nnd esteem. The origina tors of tho measures arc true philan thropists. Capt. A. M. Hutchinson, havinc pur chased an eighth of the New Orleans steamer John Kyle, takes command ot that steamer when she comes back. He wants to be a Southern man. Captain Kenniston takes chnrge of t he Tom Jasper, from which his absence is to be only temporary. No change in tho clerks. Not yet determined who will take command of Hutchinson's present craft tho S. S. Merrill. No Vicksliure racket till Sntimlnv when the Julin will leave.. Tho Colorado goes in dock to be fixed for the low wator campaign, but we Bee no immcdiuto prospect of low water hence to the lower Mississippi. STEAMBOATS. For White Klver.
