The money market continues qniet
with little animation being exhibited in
financial circlet beyond the local check
ing and depositing. Money is compar
atively easy. The banks discount
all acceptable paper offering at 910 V
cent. annum; on the streets money is
plentiful at 12 $ cent. $ month.
Brokers re paying 1084108l forgold,
with very little offering. Exchange
continues scarce, as follows: On New
York, Boston and Eas tern points, buying
at par and selling at o premium and on
New Orleans at Jc discount. The rates
between basks is f 2 1? if 1000. Local and
foreign securities remain quiet and
steady, with little movement in the mar
ket and no transactions worthy of no
tice.

The above tables show that the total
amount of circulation returned is $800,
000 less than the amount authorized by
the Comptroller of the Currency to be
issued to new banks. The difference
would trench npon the distribution au
thorized in the new act but for the fact
that there are about four millions left
under the act of 1870, known as the
$54,000,000 act, consequently there is yet
about $3,200,000 of that available. It is
generally believed that the parties in the
West and South who want to establish
new banks have nearly all been accom
modated. In the respect of inflation or
contraction, the issue and retirement of
national bank note circulation under the
new act has been practically an even
thing.

When a mau has been out in the
world a long time," remarks the Tribune
earning his meat and drink in any
other busiuess than that of school Lee fi
ne, it is astonishing Low ignorant he
soon becomes, and with what awe he
listens to little girls bounding tbe prin
cipal countries ot Europe, and stating
tbe latitude and longitude of the capital
cities perhaps spelling with ease and
accuracy many of those poxzlinz words
which always Bend ns to our Webster
Unabridged. It is astonishing how we
shed our learning as we grow older."
In Turkey when a man tells notorious
lies they blacken the front of his house.

WEATHER AND BUSINESS.
Weather pleasant. The river here is
rising slowly, from the effects of the
swell out of the Ohio. Tbe packets re
port 7 feet on Osceola and Plum Point
bars, the two worst places between here
and Cairo. From Cairo to St. Louis 7
feet are reported. The Ohio is rising
from Cincinnati to Cairo, with 8 feet in
in the channel. Cumberland river is
rising, which will improve navigation in
the lower Ohio. White river remaps at
a fair Steamboat stage. Arkansas river
is still on the decline, with 24 inches on
the bars from Pine Bluff to the mouth.
Business on tbe landing is exceedingly
dull to-day, with light shipments to all
points.
MISCELLANEOUS.
A dull day on the wharf.
Freights to all points continue scarce.
The Tom Jasper for St. Louis passed
Vicksburg yesterday.
Yesterday was the hottest day of the
season at New Orleans.
The H. C. Yaeger, Pa'agon and Com
monwealth arrived at New Orleans yes
terday. A good swell is coming out of the
Cumbeiland.
The Vint Shinkle for Memphis passed
Evansville yesterday.
The Future City and barges are due
down this evening for New Orleans.
The Glencoe will pass down this
evening for New Orleans.
The Thompson Dean will be down on
Thursday for New Orleans.
Navigation, in" the Ohio river has im
proved, and there is now eight feet in
the channel from Louisville to Cairo.
The St. Francis for Friar's Point and
Frank Forest for the'upper coast cleared
with good trips last evening.
The Belle Memphis returned to St.
Louis with a fair list of passengers.
The Fort Gibson backed out last even
ing for Arkansas river with a splendid
trip. She had all she wanted to carry
on the water.
The elegant steamer JamesD. Parker,
Captain Bob Wise in command, came in
yesterday afternoon from Cincinnati
with 400 tons of freight, including 1350
barrels salt, 400 barrels cement, 131 bar
rels whisky, 100 kegs beer, 06 casks
meat, 250 boxes starch, 127 packages
lard and 100 rolls bagging. She is re
ceiving at the foot of Monroe street for
a return trip to Cairo, Louisville and
Cincinnati, and leaves to-morrow even
ing. The Parker is an excellent boat,
has good passenger accommodations and
is in charge of careful and experienced
boatmen. Mr. Deems, a polished gen
tleman, has charge of the office.
I he Julia passed down last evening
for Vicksburg. She put off here 125
tons of grain and produce, and added 15
tons of way freight.
The Future City has three barges in
tow loaded with 2000 tons of freight, in
eluding 20,000 bushels of bulk corn.
The Henry Ames, aground at Plum
Point, threw overboard a large lot o f
oats and grain to relieve herself off the
bar. The swell out of tbe Ohio will
probably let her off.
Captain Mat Trimble was the ' larky
purchaser of tbe steamer Laura No. 2
at United States Marshal's sale yester
day; price, 4-620. Captain Trimble will
run her in the President's island trade
and do towing with her.
The Submarine succeeded in raising
the sunken barge at Uopefield belonging
to the St. Bernard Coal Association.
The Carrie V. Kountz, due up for St,
Louis, has TOO boxes and 146 hhds su
gar, 502 barrels rosin and 150 tons of
miscellaneous freight.
The Tom Jasper for St. Louis has
2500 sacks salt, 400 bbla rosin and 100
bales moss.
The splendid passenger steamer A. J.
White, Captain Mark Cheek in com
mand, leaves this evening for Napoleon
and the bends, carrying the United
States mail and attending to all way
business. Messrs. Bob Wildberger and
Charley Sharpe, tw courteous and at
tentive gentlemen, have charge of the
office.
The Kanawha No. 2 and barges are
coming down the Ohio river with 10,000
bbla of salt for Memphis.
Captain Wm. Thompson is in com
mand of the Julia this trip.
Colonel W. E. Nerrill has been ap
pointed by the Secretary of War to look
iuto the feasibility of building a railroad
bridge at Cincinnati below the foot of
Fifth street.
The Ella Hughes, Captain Drinkwater,
leaves this evening for Helena, the bends
and all points on St. Francis river
through to Marianna. The Ella Hughes
is a staunch and guod carrier. Billy
Haire is her supercargo.
Tbe landing is badly in need of repair,
but the Wharfmaster is too much en
gaged in electioneering to give any at
tention to the wharf; in fact, the wharf
has to take care of itself, and the pcor
steamboatmea are taxed to keep up a (
lot of office-holders. We would suggest ,
that the Chamber of Commerce or the
Tax-Payers' Union investigate this '
wharfage business, and see if they can
not with their assistance enable the
river commerce to get a little justice.
tJus O'Neil, who is one of the best
clerks on the river, designs retiring from
steamboating and engaging in business
on shore at Little Rock. We wish Gus
unbounded success in his new enter
prise. .
Captain Henry Miller, formerly of the
Steamers Fanny Brandies, Mary Miller
and several others, owing to dull times
on the river accepted a position as
brakeman on the Evansville and Craw
fordsville railroad, and on his first run
fell under a freight train at King's sta
tion a few nights since and had both
legs cut off, which caused his death in
one hour afterward. He leaves a wife
and three children in Evansville and
many friends to mourn his loss.
Tbe Henry Ames is still hard aground
at Osceola bar, aiid his thrown over
part of her cargo to lighten her up. Her
barge is still aground forty yards below
her.
Captain Perry, of the John Howard,
is in the city for the purpose of making
arrangements for a lucrative trade for
his excellent packet this season.
The Thompson Dean added at Louis- '
ville 400 bbls cement and some other
freight.'
The steamboatmen will have a meet
ing this evening at 8 o'clock on tbe
bluff, between Jefferson and Court, to
discuss the merits of the candidates for
county offices.
A Madame Clementina Monseur, a
Belgian lady of fortune, recently de-
ceased, had a singular mania for the
hoarding of articles of dress. After her
death an examination of her effects
revealed an unusual state of things.
There were mountains of dress goods
uncut, and bearing the tradesmen's
price labels, besides hundreds of bon
nets; dresses made up, cloaks, shawls
and various specimens of the modiste's
art. It is believed that the sale of this
accumulation of goods will realize some
thing like (20,000.
