Sunshine and shadow are chasing each other to-day, April showers being in fashion. A petition to amend the charter of the Peoples' Insurance Company was filed in the First Chancery Court to-day. Whenever yon see a knot of jolly-looking chaps on a street corner, you may bet that an office-seeker is in the midst of them. The examination of the State's wit nesses in the Poston-Schofield lynching case is progressiuK to-day in the Crimi nal Court. The Executive Committee of the Shelby County Bible Society will meet at four o'clock this afternoon in the Cumberland Prsebyterinn church on Court street. , Saratoga, as presented by the Wynd hams at the theater last night is a most attractive comedy, one that no lover of the stage can fail to witness under any circumstances. In view of the fact that Senator Carl Schurz will attend the German Maifest in this city on the 6th of May next, the proprietors of the Peabody have ex tended the hospitalities to the committee of arrangements and invitations. The Confederate Relief Association held a meeting last evening and ap pointed committees to act in conjunc tion with the Ladies' Memorial Associa tion with reference to Decoration Day, the Gth of May next. Since the rainy season commenced the demand for umbrellas has been un precedented. It is dangerous to put an umbrella down or let it get out of your sight, so many fellows are fond of play ing practical jokes in wet weather. Macadamized roads for suburban drives, and with toll gate attachments, are all the rage with incorporators at present. These roads are useful to the public and profitable to the stockholders. If you want to know how much you will be charged just go through a gate and you will be " tolled." A newspaper correspondent suggest Bayou Gayoso as the natural sewer of the city. What an insult to the memory of old Governor Gayoso, the old Span ish Hidalgo who in years gone by kept watch and ward on the bluffs beueath the old Castilian banner which floated from his fort at the mouth of Wolf river. A number of leading merchants on Front and adjoining streets have agreed to close their business houses at six o'clock p.m., commencing on the 15th of April and ending on the loth of Septem ber next. This is done in order to give their clerks some recreation. A good idea, and one worthy of general adop tion throughout the city. Letters have been received in this city from Ex. Norton, president of the Padu cah and Memphis railroad, stating that he has purchased 3750 tons of railroad iron, Sufficient to lay the track between this city and Covington, Tenn.

A motion was made this morning for a rule on the clerk to certify the entire attendauce of jurors, regardless of adjournment. The jurors in contemplation of law, although not in fact, are supposed to be present in court during the term. The motion will be heard on the 23d inst. The clerk de sires that attorneys be notified that the jury will be in attendance on said day, and jury cases will be tried, provided the attorneys notify the clerk either ver bally, or in writing as to their wish to try any special case in such manner.

The City Paving; Contract-What era Paid, WDal la Uue and wnns la Demanded. The paving contract was entered into by the city in 1867. The late judgment obtained by T. E. Brown k Co., in the United States Court, against the city for nearly half a million dollars, calls for some investigation as to the-nature of the claim, its startling items, etc. It has been insisted that Jode Emmons' judgment being infallible in all things, must of necessity be correct in his late decision as to the liability of the city on the paving contract. Judge Emmons may have erred on this point nay, it is the opinion of very able lawyers that he did err; hence, there is every reason to believe that the appeal taken by the city to the Supreme Court of the United States will be successful, so far as re lieving the judgment against the city of the extraordinary and outrageous claims for losses and damages incorporated therein, and allowed by Judge Emmons. The following statement shows the amount paid by the city to the contract ors, the actual balance due by the city to them, and the startling amount claim ed under the Emmons decision by Brown & Co., which amount, it is claimed, ought to be paid instanter, without any further legal contest: , Statement Showing the Total Coat and Payment on Account of Ale olaon Pavement.

The claim for plaintiffs' attorney fees was immense at first, but was cut down by Judge Emmons to the modest sum of $10,000. The claim for $25,000 as commissions to attorneys for collect ing money that was paid over to thel contractors witnoui sun is auumcr wuu est item. The interest on these extra ordinary claims, amounting to $85,000, forms a sum of magnificent proportions, which was also allowed by the court. The city government would be derelict in its duty did it not contest in the high est tribunal the legality of this allow ance. No city government could per mit the tax-payers to be plundered in this manner while there is a Court of Appeal in existence. The city has taken an appeal to the Supreme Court, which tribunal will finally pass upon the matter. The levies made under executions ahd gar nishments on city property are mere bluster to frighten the city government. You cannot seize or sell a public street or alley for a debt due by the city, be cause it is public property and necessary for the public use. Neither can you seize under an execution the fire en gines, public parks, buildings, nor levy on city taxes, etc., for the same reasons. Should the plaintiffs seize such property (as they have not) and convert the same from its legitimate use, a suit in behalf of the city for heavy damages would re sult There may be certain property, not exempted for the reasons above stated,' which could be seized on and sold under execution, bnt it it not likely that any considerable amount of money can be realized in this manner. Already Brown k Co. have been notified that an injunction will be applied for by the city to stop pendente lite this levying on city property. Should this injunction be granted (and it is the judgment of able lawyers that it will be), the payment of the sum due the contractors must await the decision of the Supreme Court The contractors are entitled to a considerable sum of money from the city, but the tax payers cannot afford to pay the sum due J106.140 23 and interest when the payment is burthened with the addi tional sum of $3-3,125 22 for alleged losses in the sale o' bonds and scrip, $10,000 lawyers' fees, $25,000 commit sions to lawyers for collecting without suit, and $35,000 interest on these re spective amounts, the entire bill footing up the cheerful sum of $489,268 45.

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. MONEY. Ptbi.io Lidoii Ornci. 1 MmrBia. Tv.. April 12. 1872. 1 The weather to-day is something of a damp ener on business of all kinds, and but little of interest eould be ascertained at the banks, although our reporter did his level best in the pumping line at each of these institutions visited. Money it decidedly esyt and the large surplus now held, with the dull season rapidly approaching, indicates a eompara- atively easy market through the summer month. Some of the bank officials are more anxious, than otherwiie, to tniplo; their funds, and will readily loan on first-clans names at 10 cent, for from thirty to ninety dayt, and would prefer the latter time. The supply and demand fer exchange is about equal. There are banks, though, who purchaae from their neighbors. One trans action of (20.000 was reported to-day at 12 00 premium per f 1000. Counter rates are steady at par buying on East ern points, and c disoount on New Orleans, and bankers' checks are sold re spectively at Kc premium and par. Gold is in demand at 109109, the latter being the general rate. Local securities are dull and without change. There is but a very small amount of county warrant orothortax-payingscrip now in the hands of dealers. Those who have either, however, furnish their customers with the county warrant at 95c and Tennessee money 90c. Auditor's warrants are 90c. Al corn money is sold at 75c. City securities are flat.

The rise in the river here since our last report was twenty-seven inches, and at other points tbe rise and fall is as follows: At Evansville, a rise of 5 feet; Cairo, 4 feet 9 inches; Davenport, one inch; NaHSville, 4 inches; Umafaa,.o inches; Pittsburg, 3 inches; Shreveport, 9 inches; Vicksburg, 12 inches; station ary at l.eavenwarth and Aew Orleans, and declined at Louisville 1 inch and St. Paul 2 inches. The river is rising at Quincy and Dubuque, and as will be no ticed a rise is reported at Omaha. Tbe Ohio is swelling considerably and a heavy rise here is certain. Whether it will be large enough to go over tbe banks or not "is something do fellah knows anything about," but the indications are decidedly favorable. White and the Arkansas have each a good stage of water and are navigable tor tbe largest steamers. A rain set in last night and continued at intervals nearly all night To-day we have showers at intervals of ten minutes. PORT NEWS. The City of Chester got away last night with liO bales cotton tbe Glas gow is discharging a large lot of freight and has 300 tons of freight for White river, whither she goes to-night The Silver Mortn brought a rousing trip of furniture and general merchandise, and returns to the Ohio to-night The Cheek took out a good trip Other boats did nothing worthy of mention The A. J. White, from Napoleon, came in this morning with 55 bales of cotton and 400 sacks of seed, and a fair passenger list The rain continued up to noon. MISCELLANEOUS. Two boats left Pittsburg yesterday for the headwaters of the Missouri. The St. Anthony passed Eastings yes terday on her way from Prescott to St. Paul the first boat ef the season. The Alexander arrived at the foot of Lake Pepin about tlte same time from Wino na. The ice in the lake is yet solid, an d teams are crossing, but a break-up is ex pected soon. The Cumberland to-day is thirty-six feet above low water mark. It rose twenty feet at Clarksville between Mon day morning and Tuesday morning. The B. H, II art struck the bridge at Clarksville, a day or two since, And caved in a guard. Pittsburg coal is twenty-two cents a bushel in the Cumberland river. Cheap. All the boats passing Louisville yes terday took the Indiana chute over the falls, cheating the canal company to the tune of $500, ornore. UTbe new ( ?) river editor of the Appeal has a faculty of giving to the public through his columns strange and funny stories. That published yesterday was but a beginning. The trip of cotton taken by the C. V. KounU was the largest ever carried out of the Arkansas. Miss Laura Dean and Miss Uodge are the first and second clerks of the steamer Florence Lee, plying in the Evansville and Tennessee river trade. It is needless to add that she monopolizes the bachelor travel. Considerable salt and hav on the land ing at Evansville was damaged by the sudden rise in the river. ' Humphrey's Wharfboat, at Evansville, is advertised for sale. Since last nieht the following changes are reported iu the stage of water: Mem phis, rose 1 foot; Cairo, 2 feet 9 inches; Cincinnati, 2 feet 3 inches; Pittsburg, a decline of 3 feet 3 inches; St. Iajihs, 2 inches decline. A heavy rain is reported at Cincinnati, a light rain at Louisville and cloudy at other points. The bridge over Hatchie river, on the Cuba road, was washed away yesterday. A Pittsburg telegram of Thursday night says: " Additional coal departure for Louis ville this evening: Ward, jr., J. A. Blackmore, Collier, John Penroy and Picket, with twenty-five coal boats and six fuel boats, containing 635,000 bushels of coal. These are all the towbonts in port; others are expected to-night and to-morrow. There ts plenty of coal ready for shipment. Captain M. A. Cox , purchased the steamer Brill for 116,000. She is loading for Nashville." On Wednesday, at St. Louis, the Mis souri Kiver Packet Company sold the steamer Nile to the St. Louis, Ar kansas and White river Packet Com pany for $15,000. She will be placed in the Arkansas river trade, with Captain . T. Johnson in command, and Tom Whit ledge clerk. She will follow the Utah. Our dispatches to-day contain the particulars of the explosion of the Oce auus above Cairo yesterday morning, and the loss of sixty-five or seventy per sons, including nearly all of the boat's officers and crew. The OceannB had on board several cages of wild animals for Noyes' circus. The Belle Lee had 1400 bales of cot ton when 8 ho passed Vicksburg. The decision of the local inspectors in the case of the sinking of the Falls City by the J. W. Garrett revokes the licenses of Nelson Davis, master of the Garrett, and Alexander Boss, her pilot. The Colossal, with C5A tons of railroad iron for the Cairo and Fulton road, ar rived at Little Rock Wednesday. The Nightingale is due from the Ar kansas. The A. J.
