Just now our cotemporaries are an nouncing with a flourish of trumpets that their " annual statements " will be out on tbe first prox. To be compelled to read an annual statement of the com mercial year goes far te make even the philosopher regard life as a failure and death a something to be wished for. The Cincinnati Commercial amusing ly says: "When Mr. Jefferson Davis opens his mouth to speak to an admir ing and applauding Southern audience, there is not an old line Democrat from the lakes to tbe Ohio river, who does not shake with apprehension as violently as though seized with a fit of tertian ague." The card entitled "talked to death," baa given place to a new invention, which is in circulation in business cir cles a small card, with a small cork at tached la a string, and having the fol lowing printed upon it in large letters: " The most horrible fate is to be talked to death. To prevent the above terrible fate, use the patent life-preserver attach ed to this card. Directions Put the cork in your ear." Our local poets should take warning at the fate of Longfellow, whose genius seems to have lost its inspiration, ac cording to the Baltimore Gazette, which says: " Time was when he could dip a little water from the sacred spring, but now the fountain flows no more for him. The wheezing of the pump alone is heard, and instead of the gust of poesy we have only the dry hiccough ol imper fect suction." IRESII OYSTERS Received daily by J. A. Signaigo, 27 Second street.

A Word to Working People of Both Sets., Mechonics, artisans, factory hands and people who labor for a living, find it very difficult, if not impossible, to keep the hands free from stain. Hand S.ipolio will not only remove every par tide of stain, and what is called "grained in dirt," but it will also keep the skin soft and pliable, rendering the muscular action as quick and easy as, is the case with those who do not perform band labor.

The Phil Allin yesterday brought np seven survivors of the George C. Wolff disaster whose names are W, Solomon sky, Miss Beckie Cohn, Mrs. Freeman and two children, L. H. Ellis and Miss Springer. The twe first named left on the noon train for St. Louis. The Julia came up about noon with several more survivors, and the wounded officers and crew. Among tbe former were Mrs. Frisbee and daughter and Miss Files of Shreveport, La., who, with the exception of tbe little girl were not hurt. The girl's limb was badly bruised by falling through the floor to the lower deck. Of the officers and crew, Capt. H. S. Carter was severely bruised about the head, and his left thigh, Joseph Widen, elerk, badly burned on the back and limbs and bruised about the head, but will, it is thought, recover. John Courson, chief engineer, slight hurt James Donohue, pilot, thigh crushed. Bowen, pilot, bruised.

White, circus men; four rousters buried and three missing; Mr. Dawson, wife and two children, lost by burning; Peter Ilclfiir, second enuineer.loat. Henry Bush (mate), Ed Black (second clerk) and Hiram Mahaffcy (steward), with sev eral deck hands, remained to take care of the wreck and bring it up with the Lady Lee. There were sev enty persons, passengers and crew, on board at the time of the disaster, and it is a miracle that any escaped to tell the tale. The Mississippi Valley Transporta tion Company has seven towboats and over fifty barges, averaging 1000 tons each. These barges, if placed end to end, would form a line more than three miles long. The company has several new barges on the stocks, and contem plates building another towboat. A Memphis telegram, sadly botched by the handlers of the wires, says, re garding the Howard: "She is now drawing eight feet forward and eight feet three inches aft, bnt can bum on eight feet." If the Howard can "bom" on eight feet, bow many feet would the Great Republic require te "bom" on? and would there be fire toes to each pair of feet? The James D. Parker leaves Cincin nati for Memphis, and the Arlington for New Orleans Wednesday. The Charles B. Church has gone to St. Louis from Cairo to load for New Orleans. The gauge at Newport, Ky., has been changed to indicate the space for pase ing boats onder the railroad bridge, in stead of the depth of water. A Washington telegram says that tl termination ef the Wawaaaett inveatiga tion has at length been reached, and thits week tbe Supervising Inspectors wlo have been runniug the affair expect to be able to inform the publio as to tho cause of the burning of tbe vessel, and as to the responsibility for the large loss of life. There was a mistake, it now ap pear., in the certificate granted by tho Supervising Inspector, which should have read one hundred and fifty instead of Gfty passengers allowed to be carried. Nor was there any discipline on tbe boat, the passengers and crew looking out for themselves, with no one to prop erly direct. This investigation will have the effect of waking up some of the su pervising inspectors, who are rather easy in their enforcement of the law. There were thirteen applicants for the Ceunty Boiler Inspectorship at Pitts burg. Wm. E. Russell got it and twelve other applicants did not. An Evansville telegram of the 22d says:. lhe Lawrence was aground thirty hours at Scuffletown. She dis charged 30 tons here. The Morning Star was aground at Sauffletown, but got over, Tbe Nashville is aground at Cas siville with a big trip." Captain Loudon, of this city, has pur- . chased the steamer Keokuk at St. Louis for 14000. The Clarksville leaves for the Arkan sas to morrow. PERSONALS.
