A few nights ago a couple of etrancers arrived in the city and put up at one of our hotels, both occupying the same room. Daring Tuesday list, both of the gentle men took a circuit around the city, and droppedinto the various wholesale houses on an inspecting tour, for they were mer chants from a neighboring country town. One of the party was bald-headed, and having traded considerably at one of our drug houses, took a fancy to a bottle la beled "great hair restorer," and purchased it for his own private use. The other gen tleman had been mixing around with the grocery and liquar men, and a sample of "best Robertson county" had been put up for him to try. Natural enough, each of the individuals, upon arriving at their room in the hotel, relieved themselves of their bottles, both of which were deposited on the mantelpiece for safe-keeping. The man with the bottle of whisky had reached the hotel ahead of his companion, and left the room before the return of his friend with the small crop of hair. The latter, anxious to test the merits of the pre paration, had anointed his head freely when first reaching the room After per ambulating through tho city, the former reached the hotel again just about night, and before going into supper, ho concluded to see what virtue there there was in the bottle.of Robertson county that had been presented to him during the day. So he hurriedly proceeded-to his room, and feel ing his way to the mantle-piece in the dark, he found the bottle, and turned it up, and swallowed a good square drink. If he had received a galvanic shock, the effect could not havo been more sudden. He dropped the bottle, and for a time suffered the most excruciating pain. The bell rope was pulled, and a waiter answered the call A physician was summoned,"and arrived at the bedside of the Buffering man juntas bald-head, a jovial curse, as he was called in his native place, entered the room. He discovered his hair restorer broken on the hearth, and after a little inquiry, comprC' bended tho situation, and eo did the doctor, who soon had his patient restored to "feed ing condition." Tho young man however still insists that bristles are growing iu his throat, and says that he will after this ad here closely to the old rule which require liquids to be "well shaken before taken,'' thus giving him time to see what he is about. TEItllllll.K lit AG CD Y IN EAST TEX XESSEE. A Jinn Shoots His Wife and then KUI Iliisscir Accidentally. The Knoxville Prcsi and Herald men tiona a heart-rending tragedy, which oc curred at Blountville, in Sullivan county, on Sunday morning last. From the meagre details we could gath er, says that paper, it seems that Mr. Rhea son of the late Robert II. Rhea of that county who fjryears has resided with his family in the town of Blountville, on San day morning, while his wife was sitting in the porch, suspecting no danger, took pistol a six shooter and deliberately fired at her. The shot took effect in the side of the head, inflicting what was thought a mortal wound. The wife in ter ror fled out at the end of the porch, falling in the yard. Rhea, who seemed to be in furiated, pursued, and was in the act of firing again, when he fell from the porch, In he fall, the pistol was again somehow discharged. The contents entered his body killing him inetantly. The lady when last heard from was in a critical condition. As to the cause of such horrid conduct on the part of the husband, our informant knows nothing, except that Rhea had lor some time been excessively intemperate, and was probably laboring under a fit of mania polu. The family are of the highest respecta bility, and this terrible circumstance has, no doubt, been the occasion of much ex citement and sorrow in the community. Tr.KUIIII.E CASUAI.IT Y. An Old Ueslldent or Memphis Crushed t Dentil. In tho early part of the day yesterday, says the Memphis Aialaache of Ttieday, a sad accident occurrtd at the Memphis and Ohio depot, resulting in the immediate death and terrible mangling of Mr. C. N. Robinson, principal watchman for the railroad company. He was standing on main track near the crossing of Third street, taking down the numbers of the carsof a freight train which had just cr.me in and been switched off on the side track. Tho engine " Victory" had crossed Inck on the main track and was backing up to the shop, and was ringing the bell, but the switch engine was at the rear of the freight train, and Mr. Robinson, it is supposed, being busy, mistook the bell of the Victory for that of the switch engine. The engi neer could not sec the track, and the len der and engine both passed over the unfor tunate man before the engineer checked up. Death was instantaneous and the body terribly mangled. Mr. Robinson was for seventeen years a member of the old police force, and at one time a lieutenant. He leaves a tick wife and five childrci in a. helpless condition. Ho was a quiet, worthy man, and his terri ble death will sadden tin hearts of all who knew him. Discharged. Caroline Hall, colored, who was arrc.Ud on Tuesday, charged with stealing $100 in mcn-H- and about $150 worth of china ware and parlor furniture, horn tie rcei dence of Mr. Joseph Duprtz, on Market street, was arraigned before Justice Thur ncck yesterday. The evidence was net sufficient to convict her of the charge and she wat released. Detective Itarmoro searched Ikt room yesterday morning, and found a number of towels belonging to Mr. Ace v; also aim? quilt which was identified by Mr. Carger. These peoplo aic close neighbors to Mr. Duprtz. She will probably be re-arrested to day. Accidentally Shot. Mr. Sam. McCall wa accidentally Uol ou Dcaderick street Tuesday night a'jout nine o'clock. He was walking towart's the Square and as ha paed by a barber shop kept lysoine German people, just above printer' alley he wai t-lrnck in the face by a bill from a pittlol in the hands of some person in tho barber shop, the pii-tol being accidentally discharged. The re port that he wa shot by a man in a h uk is unfeucded. Ilreom Corn Mill Moving We noticed yeMerday another shipment of broom cirn from Williamson county to New York. Why don't .our Williamson county friends eUablish a broom factory ? If they can afford to ship to New York, and afterwards purchase the same stuff when made up into broom', it would cer tainly pay to manufacture at home. There would bo a saving of freight both ways.

Disregarding the suggestion to postpone the affair till Christmas or the Fourth of July, as a matter of economy in turpentine and fire-crackers, the colored people and that portion of the whito community who are greatly rejoiced oer the election of Grant and Colfax, have determined upon an immediate public celebration of the event. Tho principal feature of the de monstration is to be speaking in both halls at the Capitol, and the following named gentlemen areannoucccd to do the talking of the occasion : Hon. U. II. Harrison IIou. D. W. C. Senter.IIon. D. M. Nelson, Hon. D. W. Peabody, Hon. T. C. Muse, Hon. W. M. Woodcock, Hon. John Hugh Smith and Hon. T. A. Hamilton It will be observed that the names of distinguished colored orators, "Hon." John Cockrill and "Hon." Randal Brown do not appear in the list of speakers. How is this? Is the seemingly significant onus sion the result of accident, or an intentional slight by the white managers of the affair upon the colored troops whoso votes so largely helped to achieve the victory to be celebrated ? If an accident, the omission is pardonable if otherwise, it is mean. The colored people who are mainly de pended upon for getting up the noise and audience of the coming celebration, and who will no doubt be looked to for a lib eral share of funds to defray the expenses of the same, are entitled to an explanation. Itis.certainly due them for these white managers to say why black men are so highly honored before an election and so strangely forgotten just after its occurrence. Let the explanation be made and recorded. But let us glance at the list of while ora tors announced, and see how some of these gentlemen can have the heart to rejoice over what is termed a Radical triumph, and how others mentioned in the list can find leisure and disposition to harangue polit ical gatherings. Hon. H. n. -Harrison has just been overwhelmingly defeated in the Legisla ture for public printer. With what sort of enthusiasm can ho celebrate the victory of a party so manifestly ungrateful for the service ho has rendered it? How can ho have the heart to utter words of cheer and congitulalion ? non. D. W. C. Senter, Speaker of tho Senate, has hut recently passed through the humiliating ordeal of being arraigned at the bar of that body, for giving aid and comfort to the Confederacy while a mem ber of Gov. Harrib' Rebel Legislature. Knowing, as he certainly must do, that he only escaped conviction and removal from office, because, as stated by a Senator du ring the discussion attending, his arraign ment, a majority of his colleagues at some stage or other of the rebellion, either sym pathized with or supported it, and that to remove men from office upon charges of that sort, would leave Tennessee without a Legislature, with how much voice can Speaker Senter sing psalms over the achievement of victory by a party which passes laws practically forbidding his fu ture election to any office of profit, honor or trust? How can he say "thank God and the people who condemn me, for the election of Grant and Colfax?" Hon. T. A. Hamilton, elected to repre sent Tennessee in the councils of the nation, will, before he takes his seat in that cap acity, be required to make solemn oath that he never aided or abetted the rebel lion. Gentlemen of unquestioned veracity have publicly charged that Mr. Hamilton was early in the war connected with the Quartermaster's department of the Con federate army. If Mr. Hamilton cannot disprove the charge, how is he to take the required path, or evade the law disqualify ing for office all persons who have aided and abetted the rebellion ? Called upon to swear that he has been unswervingly true to the government of the United States, can he, as if with magician's wand, dispel all proof to the contrary, and boldly de clare himself one of the Lord's untainted ? If he cannot, how cm he have the heart to rise up in the Capitol and say to the blessed that he was always loyal, and that he sin cerely rejoices in the triumph of rtdictl ism? Hon. D. M. Nelon is Clerk of the Sen ate, and, leaving his erroneous political views out of the way, altogether "a nice young man." He reads bills and calls the ; roll in a clear and distinct manner, and sometimes even in a musical tone of voice discharges this branch of his official duty He has in fact a voice to be proud of, and can readily see the danger to which i would be exposed by a long-winded ora lion at the nronosed iubilee. He will therefore! recognize the importance o brevity, which is, after all, "the soul o wit," in the congratulations he may have to offer. Hon. D. W. Peibjdv is a votine man of unquestioned loyalty, and no doubt has cause to feel thankful over the result. He was not vested with Supreme Court honors by Gov. Brownlotv, but was a few days since elected City Attorney, which is said to be a better thing, financially speaking than any judgs'uip in the State, provided the incumbent manages it with that end in view. It seoins, however, that Mr, Peabody can still find time to address gen eral assemblies of his Radical fellow-citi zens. He has lately had the good fonune to marrv a Tennessee wife, and we hope tbat in future the irood l.idv will mmaue to keep him at home of evenings. Hon. John Hugh Smith is Judge of tho Criminal Court now in term, and with some unimportant and even questionable excep tions, a gentleman with a record of undoubt ed lovaltv. He i: also blessed with solid proportions and a ready faculty for speech making. Wo listen to him with pleasure, even sometimes while he utters sentiments we rannot approve. This is because we give him credit for a degree of candor not common to his political associate-', anil tli possession of enough political honesty to occasionally rebuke his party friends fur official rascalities. We regret to see him dragging the jud.cial ermine of tbeStite flirnnoh lhe dirtv cess-pools of Radical o ringism, and hope he will keep the afore said ermine well tucked tip to prevent a contamination that nil the waters of the Cumberland could not wash clean. When thejubilce is over, we will be pleastd to hear that Judge Smith either declined to speal: or only said a few words in tho way of a priestly bsnediction. Hon T. C. Muse is an elected Elector on the Grant ticket in Tennessee, and there fore has some personal cauo for rejoicing, He is hUo a candidate for Secretary of State, and that fact more than all others will inspire his muse to celebrate in song, as well as etorv, the brilliant victory of the party ho swears by. Hon. W. M. Woodcock is a member of the popular branch of the Legislature, and will be a candidate ror re-election, provided the franchise law is not materially altered before the next campaign. Unlike the noisy bird alter wtncli he is named, Mr W. is a quiet gentleman, although usually pecking away with commendable industry at the House in behalf of his constituency and their interests. He is expected to spread himself and whistle a lively time in the grand pow-wow of the gushing vic tots. It will bo obseived as a very remarkable fact, that all the speakers announced are ' office-holders. With the exceptions we have mentioned, it may betaken for grant ed that they are in admirable condition for commemorating the election of their sort to wield or thwart the destinies of the nation. Go in, gentlemen, and make hay while the political sun shines to your liking. It is a bread and butter business with you, and your zeal should be praised rather than censured. Skitr it Gnylon'.'s Minstrels. One of the very best performances we havo ever witnessed is that presented by the Minstrel Troupe now engaged at the Summer Street Theater. Tho feats of legerdemain, by Frank Pell, are unap proachable, and the contortion act of Mas ter Willie Gay lord is equal to the best pro fessionals. He is a mere lad, and will make his mark some day. Armstrong's flute solo is Buperb, while the pantomime of Pango, the ape, was received with great applause. Andrew McKee, the song and dance man, and an old favorite here, is among the minstrels. The evening's en lertainment concludes with Prof. Scaffei's celebrated dissolving views, which is alono a good show, and worth the price of ad mis sion. The theater, wo may add, was dense ly ;crowded, and during their stay the troupe will receive that patronage due such an array of talent as is presented. Arrest or n Suspicions Character. W. G. Moore was discovered in Mr. R, C. Foster's yard on Vine street, last night, by a servant girl. When he saw the girl he concealed himself in, the privy and as soon as she went in the house again made his appearance Armistead Foster saw him this time and started after him hal loaing halt several times. He would not eton and the vountr man shot at him. He ran down an alley and concealed him self among some weeds in a neighboring yard. He was captured and taken to the station house, and In default of security for his appearance this morning, was com' mitted to the workhouse. iaid oir.

The Memphis Avolanclte of Tuesday thus refers to this distinguished divine This eminent young divine on Sunday last delivered two sermons in this city that were unsurpassed for power of thought and grandeur ot delivery, by any discourses ever delivered in our c:ty. 11 preached in the morning at tho First Methodist Church, and at niht at the Hernando street Church. Each houso was filled to its utmost capacity. It was a literal jam, with no standing room left, .Many went away unable to enter tho ves tibules ot tuo churches. The preacher's themo in the morning was the .Judgment ; at night. Redemption. Much has tieen s.iid in the newspapers, both church and secular, relative to the extraordinary power of this young divin in tho presentation of the truths of the Christian religion. Public expectation had been aroused - and excited bv th fume of his preaching, until many friends of his church trembled for the result lie met expectation and moro than met it. And yet there is a simplicity and purity in the stylo ol his delivery that disarm criticism. There is no bonst in manne or parade ol forms ; his enunciation clear and distinct, and his manner of delivery simplo and unaffected We pronounco him ono of tho first orators of the age. Of tho substance of theso two discourses we could say much, anil speak in tho highest terms, and still not do them full justice. Great ideas and largo thoughts tell as ponderous weights from his master mind, but always clothed in the most beautiful attire. Sometimes tho language was gorgeous, but always well fitted unu adjusted. Una ot his must re markablc powers is in wordspainting; i equals tho genius of the canvas delinea tor; the picture stands out living and breathing. With this power we were struck in his morning discourse, as he ai. sembled the bust ot the past lor tho gran assizo. It was the perfection of oratory. But we refrain from further comments. All should hear him. Mr. Holland is a citizen of Kentucky, and comes from tho Stato that has given to tho world tho Clays and Brcckinridgc3, Uascoms and Kavanaughs. And vet he lives in tho same element with these groat minds. THE SWEDISH A Kmc TIO.V.

A Fearful Valley Scene In tho liar- dancer rrovluce Adventures of Travel, etc. A writer in tho last number of tho London Cornell Magazine gives an ac count of his travels through the province of Hardanger, in Norway. Among other things ho writes of a famous waterfall as follows : We cannot conclude a sketch of this district without savins a few words about tno tamotis watorlall. which is approaencu by ono of tho dark.ravineB at tho head of tho Jako before described, ilicro aro other falls of great height and beauty in tho neighboring gorge, and moro than one full stream shoots over "tho perpen dicular escarpments of Simcdal; there is also within a lone dav's journey the gigantic cataract of Skjeggcdal above the norijoru winch an accompiisnca traveler has very recently described; but tho Yoring-lo3s remains tho wonder of all that country side. Tho road winds up to it for several miles between steep cliffs, and by the side of a foaming river, until it is blocked by another clilf, or rather pile of enormous rnnlcs: a ziczaz path leads up through ferns and dropping streams, ana trom the ptain aoovo wo look down to' tho lake surrounded with snowiribbed mountains through tho black clefc bv which wo havo ascended. Un one sido is a precipice over which two brothers, racintr on snow-shoes, were dashed ono winter into the valley; be hind us a flat cxpanso of moor and marsh, covered with flowers and cloudberries, divides us from the Jokul and its rooky companions. At some distance a column of whito smoko riso? from tho ground, and this is tho reek of tho Vonng-foss; on approaching it and looking down wo seo a good-sized river falling into a deep chasm or caldron with a mighty roar and vapor. All manner of fine descriptions havo been written of it, and ono traveler who was hero in the winter has left a striking ac count of its beauty when falling throuch a cave of ice, glittering with huge crys tals and enormous icicles. A visitor o more pretentious stylo has been quoted by Lieutenant Breton: "All nature stands aghast, the very mountains seem petrified at tho sight, and the animals had lied from a wild which may almost he said to terrify the vegetable creation. We will not attempt to rival this magniU cent rhapsody, and will only say that the moat striking view is to bo obtained from the overhanging cliff on the south sido of tho fall, which cannot, however, be reached without a weansomo jourmy through quaking oogs ana across muddy stream?. The height of the fall has been much exaggerated. Tho books nil agree in estimating the descent at least at 000 feet, and it is not unusual for travelers to maintain that tho leap is a thousand feet high, tuners have doubted the ac curacy of tho calculation made by its discoverer, t roiessor llaustcin, and have observed that tho visitor s position tEUS .cause the proportions of the waterfall to be foreshortened in a very unusual do crce, it the common opinion is to he a. cepted. At the time of one of our visits a party of Norwegian engineers wci employed upon a government survey, at d they decided the question lor us by stat ing that the deptn ot tho chasm was un der 500 feet. There cani however, be no doubt that tho sheer fall of so larce body of water in long columns or wreaths of foam is ono of the most magnificent sights in Iiuropo. After gathoring from the edgo ot the clill overhanging th Foss, a fine plant of tho ' King of tho Mountains," which attains great perfec tion in the black oozy soil, we fo!' lowed tho course of tho river in land, instead of returning to tho shore, a dozen miles below. As so few travelers go further inland than the waterfall itself wo will close this description of tho Hardanger region with n few words about the upper country. lho march land lying between tho inouu tain-tops heio forms what is called a "field-dale, or mountain valley, closed i the end of a fow miles by a sudden rise in the cround, and stretching ajrain in land on n higher elevation, until step by step the limit of vegetation is reached and nothing but stony peaks and muddy hills remain. Wo were well ontcrtained at a little farm lying in the lower portion of tho "fjeld-dale," and surrounded by meadows were ' you scarce could sec the earth tor flowers, and where tho wild strawberries and juicy cloud-berries grew all about in wonderful profusion. Af;er coffee and trout, with bowls of fruit and cream, we wero shown to the rooms hung with sweet herbs and stored with heaps of peas, mallows, and other corintry treasures, where our beds of sweet hay had been prepared. Un the left outside lay a stack of what locked like paste board, but which was in truth the house hold store of "llad-brod" or thin griddle cakes of oatmeal. Wo continued next day our course beside the river, tlixough meadows as luxuriant as ever; tno lor get-mc-nots spread in masses on every sue, tho slender ranunculi or "reindcer- flowcr.i" choose the drier sides of the knolls and hillocks, "and the wild marsh marigold flames like Dro tnrousdi swamps and hollows gray." Passing some lino cascades at tikurvestol, wo entered a well-wooded plain, from which a green hill rises, surmounjed by a little farm the highest in situation of all upon this range of mountains. We turned away with regret trom the wonderlul viewdown tho valley toward the sea, and round tho mountains which encircled the moor land of yesterday's journey where tho broad river diverges into two branches Wo had to climb down the curved rock, polishol a .parently by glacial ae tion, and even the ponies got without i stumble down this formidable "Katzen stieg," the men holding on their tails, and permitting them to movo only inch by inch. Soon after this a cloud of spray was seen issuing from the ground, and swaying to and 1'ro in the wind. This was a waterfall n uncd Storli foss, of which we had never seen any description, It fills from a considerable height into a deep cbfism, like the Voring itself; by climbing down a rock which jutted out in front ol the tall a cry good view was attained by one of the party, but as he ascended the loose ftonesol the clilt-side began to move ami carry him down, s that it was not without som.; trouble and anxietv that at last ho was extricated from his dangerous imprisonment lleforo evening we rea-:hed tho higher kills, crossing snow at intervals; here nil vegetation ceased except the lichens and atlwarftd willow that grows beside the snow. This region is inhabited only by the skulking foxes, ths wild reindeer of which, to our great pleasure, we passed a numerous herd and by the golden plo vers, whii'h perch upon the scattered rocks, and raise their wailing cry as the traveler passes along tho moor. Turning dou award at last, we arrive at tho broad pastures of lljor.idal, where the last huts are built upon the verge of a desert track which stretches away to tnouistant lla! ling-dal. Tho shallow river sparkled, Mid tho distant snows wore illumined the crimson sunset, as wo stood bv tho low door-way ti see tho cattlo return to the sound oi the Alpino horn; and here, on the boundary ol another province. and out of sight of the waters of the Fjord, we snail closo the account ol our summer rjmMo in the pleasant region of Ilardat. ger. ti-.-neral Howard says the Freedman's llureau has, for thico or four week, been investigating the report about frauds upon colored soldiers and sailors in the matter ol paying their claims lor bounty. Ho and his staff officers do not hclievo any money has yet been paid over to par ties engaged in trotting up the swindle, thoughJliey aro aware that arrangements have been making to accomplish some', thing. They think, Lowever, that the game is confined to Kentucky and Ten nessee, and know that the chief officers of the Bureau in these States will take every precaution to prevent the ring from carrying out their plans. The Commis sioner will bo glad to receive information from any source that will aid him in fer retina out tho guilty parties, whether among his agents or among citizens of those States, and the severest penalties of the law will bo visited upon any person whom it can be proven is connected with tho business. OIl HOUSES. Curious Facts Regarding the Oldest IIouso In tho Clly or.civ Torb. Tho "Hermit of Now York." in his last cttcr, says : The oldesthouso in this citv is at the corner of Greenwich and Cedar streets, and as it is the only wooden houso on any of tho four corners formed by tho &uvw.wu w .utooDuccu, ii, uiay easily bo recognized. It is about twentv feet square and is two stories in height" The weather boards, which have no doubt been in uso a century, aro still of good service, and so is the antique "f oof. Tho first floor is occupied as a grocery, and the upper storvis tenanted bvseveralnoor families, who, as a matter of course, pay enormous rents, and hence, old as it may be, it still pays as well as ono of modern construction. When tho houso was built it was in the suburbs of the city, which then contained about 20,000 inhabitants. It was tho "Beach House," and steod on tho margin of tho Hudson, vhich by reason of filling in is now eight hundred feet distant Tho amount of laud thus made by dockintr out the river on this side of the town is equal to about one thousand acres, worth 300,000,009. The iieadi nouso is inthe hands of the Urom melin family, who havo held it for a long time, and will not sell it at any priffi. Ad joining this house is one of similar char acter, which must have been built about the same time. Although of small size, it was once used as a tavern, and accom odated the emigrants who landed at the quay in front Quite a curious circumn stanco is connected with tuts old bouse, For more than fiftv years a man has been known to como annually to this spot on a certain day, and spend many hours gaz ing upon that old tavern. A friend re cently inquired tho reason. 'Sir," was tho reply, "fifty years ago I entered that house, a poor weaver from Glasgow. All I had in the world was contained in a pockct-hankerchief. In that little garret I slept tho first night I was in America, and now I make it a rule to como here on this anniversity and thank God for his mercy to me." Tho man thus referred to was tho late William Scott, for many years a prominent merchant in this c.tr, Immediately on leaving the tavern refered to, he hired a basement and commenced weaving rag carpets. After getting a small capital in this manner he opened a retail store, and trom this humble begin. ning ho bocamo worth $300,000. The next oldest building in the city is the "'old Walton House." This well-known struc ture is in Franklin Square, near Harper's book establishment It was built before the Itevolution by an English gentleman named alton, in what was the nristo cratic part of tho city. It was a buildim of very great pretentions in his day, and its quaint heads carved in brown stone still show the tasto of its author, it is now become a cheap boarding house or placo of bodily entertainment, where one tan drink beer and eat Welsh rarebits amid tho memories of former grandeur. What in the world can Andj Jehnson have been doing I Horace Oreelcy says of him : "Mr, Andrew Johnson is a man of many faults, but venality is not araonjc; them. Wo knew lum in Uongress, where men aro pretty acurately weighed and measured ; ho lias since tilled almo every important station, made many bitter enemies, and waged deadly war against men abler and stronger than himself; yet ho has never been even charged with filling his own pocket at tho public cost. The frienda of Hon. Matt II. Carnen ter. sav ho will certainly be elected United "States Senator by the Wisconsin Legislature, next winter, in place Uoolittle. SPECIAL NOTICES. NewCnrpcts!

Baker, Cairo, 4 p.m. The river at this point yesterday was stationary, with Cve feet large on this shoals. Weather clear and ceal. The A. Baker had a good trip up, her cargo including iron, flour and sundries. The Kaly Morrison which cleared for the upper Cumberland had a fins grocery trip. The.Robert Moore had not arrived up to dark, bnt in all probability will be found in port thi morning. The A. Baker is the regular packet for Cairo to-day at 4 p. m. She will receive cotton for the blue line to New York, and give bills of lading to all points on tho Ohio and Mississippi rivers. The "Betsoy" is commanded by the .popular boatman, CapL J. N. Corbett of Sallie West and C. E. Hillman fjme.with W.B. Gracey and Eugene Corbett in the office. There were one hundred and thirty bales of cotton on the wharf yesterday, received by the agents to be shipped to Cincinnati oa the Robert Moore. The Knoxville Pea and Herald cf Tuesday says : Mr. L. J. Coker will launch his new steamer in a day or two, and exoects to set her out by Christmas. Thi3 will be one'of tho best boats that has ever been on the upper river, and is especialtr adapted to the wants of the trade, being of light draft and at tbe same time has power sufficient to give her a fine average speed. The following is from the New Orleaca Crescent of Sunday : It was rumored upon the landing yester day evening that Capt. W. C. Harrison, of the Birt Able, had been tendered com mand of the Rutb. and that she ter the trade as a regular packet between this city and Vicksburg. Only 1,014 bales cotton were reetlvM yesterday per river steamer?. Ihe total receipts for the rust week cf cotton by river steamers were 19,503 bite?, showing a decrease co tuna red with the re ceipts of the previous week of 2.317 balfa cotton, and 4,250 on tbe receipt for tbe WDfil- onillnr. C.l..t. X 1 The Mobile Heguler of the 14th says: An tlghteen hour rain is reported Up the Black Warrior, and that stream, in conse quence, swelling, while the Alabama and '1'ombigbee, having no backing of that kind, are Mill on the decline. The arrivals also report the through 8team;r Leo nt far behind thtm, with a full load of cotton (over 1,200 bale) for the Crescent City. Clara Susk. From a private dispatch to one of our merchant-", dated Demopolis, IStb, we are pained to Jearn that this neat est of stern-wheelers has sunk the dis patch says fifty mites below DemopoFs giving no other panic liars'. The accident occurred on the up-trip, and must have happened in the latter part of Wednesday night, or e'.rly Thursday morning. Boats sink now befure break fast, and are raised and go on by din er, and it is hoped that this may be one cf that kind, though tbe non-arrival of the Prairie State up to dark last night wou'.l seem to indicate that she might have ben detained assisting at the wreck.
