This is to be ascribed to heavy rains in the up-country, which have pro duced the effect of rapidly raising the waters of the upper Mississippi, Missouri, and other streams, to flood-tide, greatly to the injury o the country along their borders. The weather of lute has been somewhat uiore moderate, with cool and pleasant nights and mornings. The afternoou periods, between 3 o'clock and sunset are our hottest, the mercury getting up to 92 or degrees.
