was aereed to reduce the cnpital stock
,'rom $3,000,0000, to $1,50(1.000. This
action was verified by the directors, and
official notice given at the office of the
Secretary ol btate, Irom wnicn a cerun
cste was issued accordingly. The stock
holders then voted to increase the capi
tal a miliion and a half, bringing it up
to the chartered amount and tha direct
ors will bold a meeting to arrange the
payment of the new slock, several plans
being proposed. This action places the

" The feature of the local market is

to he made, .tltna and Phirnix Fire
hava both been in demand, at prices
made lat week, but no stock has come
on the market this week. The immrdi
air future of the awry value of .Etna

amount of the new shatM put on the

been disposed of, showing a good de
mand and a disposition on the part of
buyers to go a little higher in prices and
not hold over, as is usually the case on
Saturdays. It is surmised, too, that the
activity that has characterized our mar
ket during the week is due in part to the
movement on the part of some of the
Eastern spinners to purchase their next
summer's stock earlier this season and
not postpone it as heretofore until
spring, and pay from two to four cents
per pound higher and then select from
a poor stock. Whether this be true or
not we are unable to say, but would
deem it a wise move for the spinner.
The fulling off in receipts, as shown by
our daily statement, causes some anxiety
among buyers, showing that the planters
this year are able to hold their cotton,
sending only such quantities to market
as will supply them witb provisions and
meet the payments on old accounts.
From this standpoint the outlook is
anything but discouraging, and at
the end of the season we expect to
see the planter in a better con
dition, financially, thau he has ex
perienced since the war. Included in
the sales to-day were all grades. The
demand, however, being chiefly for strict
good ordinary to strict middling; the in
side figure paid for the former was 17c
and purchased on Liverpool account,
aid lT(e for middling. We quote as

The St Louis De-.nocrat of Thursday
contains the following account of a col
lision between the Great Republic and
W. J. Lewis, wb ,eh was unavoidably
crowded out of ou jesterd ly's issue:
The ateairipr W. .1. Lewis left her land
ing and eUrteil down the river about
half-past five o'clock last evening, with,
a heavy load ot ireiglit and a large num
ber of deck p-.ssen-rs on board. When
opposite the Coo' ot Anna street she met
the Great Republic, which was coming
up the channel in tow of n smaller boat.
Through su'.nc, misunderstanding of sig
nals, or the iu attention of the ollicers of
one of tho boats, they collided. The
bow of the Great Republic struck the
Lewis in front of the wheel, cutting into
her hull below the water line. Her offi
cers, finding that she was in danger of
sinking, stretched a tarpaulin over the
hole, temporarily stopping the leak. The
boat was then headed tor shore, and
landed at the foot of Annastieet As
tbe other boat kept on np the stream,
she was probably uninjured. Great ex
citement and alarm prevailed among
the passengers of the Lewis until they
were safely landed. Owing to the
prompt action of the officers in stretch
ing the tarpaulin, there did not enough
water enter the hold to duniBgo the
