The " S ea Bibd ."—Captain William
Marehav has arrived with his snug little
steam craft, purchased by him at the late
Government sale of steamers at Mound
City. The "Sea Bird" (the name he has
given his boat), is really abeautifnlmodel,
and has had several uselul improvements
made to her which render her very tidy
and comfortable throughout. Her length
is 90 feet; breadth of beam, 20 feet; di
ameter of cylinder, IS inches; length of
stroke, 3 feet, 6 inches; and tonnage,
We took a ramble through this prim
and attractive little vessel yesterday and
must confess, that we were highly pleased
with all of her arrangements. She has a
superior engine, with polished wrought
iron shafts, besides an excellent boiler,
drum and other eutfits equal to a first
class «teamer. She was formerly the Al
exandria, and was used by Admiral Porter
as a tendor to his Mississippi fleet. Her
hull is perfectly sound, and so are all her
Should C«pt. M abkuam succeed in ob
taining the ferry contract with our city
and West Baton Bouge, it is his intention
to make such other alterations in his ves
sel as will adapt her more completely for
the purposes of a ferry-boat.
With such a commodious and convenient
little steamer at hand, we think that the
authorities having the power to extend
ferry privileges in this vicinity, will be
standing in their own light should they
not &eize upon the present opportunity for
securing the services of Capt. M askham ' s
"Sea Bird" as a ferry-boat.
ÎSF" The cotton market in New Orleans
on Saturday was deproifscd, owiiig to un
favorable accounts received from Liver
pool. About 2000 bales changed hands on
Friday, at the usual average rates.
Considerable business was done in ex
change, over a million of dollars in ster
ling and francs having been sold by the
banks on Saturday.

BJ"" It is remarked of Abd-el-Kader,
who with his two beautiful youug wives, is
quite the rage in Paris, that he neither
smokes or permits any one else to smoke
in his house. He however does not abstain
In these two features of omission and
commission—anti-smoking and wiue-bib
bing—ho stands in singular contrast to his
oriental fellow-citizens, who, as a race, are
proverbially inveterate smokers, and, ow
ing to the inhibitions of the Mahommedan
religion, affect strict abstinence from the
use of wine or ardent spirits. We have
known some of them, however, to use
arrack and anisette, on the sly. Their
indulgence in opinm, is almost universal,
and occasionally they take to "hasheesh,"
(a liquid prepared from hemp,) which in
its intoxicating effects, produces the most
unbounded sensation of delight upon the
fcrain, but leaves a wreck of misory behind.
Four English travelers in attempt
ing a descent from the highest of tlio Al
pine summits, the Mattertorn, last month,
were precipitated from rock to rock to a
depth of 40Ü0 feet ! They had reachcd the
apex of the mountain, over 14,000 feet from
the base, and had descended safely more
than two-thirds the way, when the rope to
which they were all tied, broke and pre
cipitated them below, as above related.

tifTThe Now York Pott, one of the moat
prominent of the Republican paper«, says :
The Republicans have ceased to be, from
the simple fact Lhat they have no longer
any distinctive croed to express, or any pe
culiar function to fulfill. What they set
out to do—to fix a limit to the extension of
slavery—they have more than done; and
the principle which brought them together
having been accomplished they have no
reason for being.

Commercial and Agriesltaral Statistics.
In contemplating the infinite and varied
resources of the West, in all their natura'
and artificial aspects, we hardly know
which to admire and wonder at the most—
the agricultural fecundity which has made
that region the great granary and entrepot
of this continent, or the mechanical skill
and enterprise which has contributed so
largely to its own material grandeur and
In whatever phase we choose to view
these characteristic indioations of a supe
rior advancement, we behold the impress
of energy, industry aud perseverance. Not
alone to the influences of climate, soil or
situation are we to look for the developing
causeB of such rapid and exalted prosperity.
Other sections equally, if not more pecu
liarly favored in those respects, have never
displayed such marvelous growth, such
profuse outpourings of wealth and varied
enterprise to stimulate and perfect their
natural and artificial resources und advan
tages. Possessing the wealth, the soil and
the climate, they were yet lacking in those
essential elements to be found among
denser populations, where from necessity
as well as ambition, the energies are called
more fully into play aud capital and labor
combine more readily in the building up
of great public and remunerative enter
A glance at the commercial, agricultural
and manufacturing statistic» of the West is
at all times curious and interesting. In
deed, the subject is of vital interest to the
Southern people, who have always beeo
largely dependent on the West for bo many
articles of sustenance and comfort; and
therefore, it is, that a general desire is
manifested to study the condition ol the
Western markets and keep posted with
reforence to the fluctuations therein at
tending supply and demand as well as
The St. Louis, Journal of Commeice, (, one
of the best commercial papersin the Union)
contains in its issue of the 30th ult., tabu
lar compilations Bliowing the rise aud fall
of different loading and staple articles in
St. Louis, Chicago, Cincinnati and New
York, during the four weeks of August.
The fluctuations in gold during that pe
riod having been slight, the rates charged
for other articles were correspondingly
affected. Thus, gold in St. Louis, during
the said month ranged from 10 to 4iHj';
^nd cotton, (middling,) 58 to 42 cts. Su
gar-cured hams were from 2t; to -38 cts.
flour, (superfine,) $6 .50 to $7 50; lard, 2$
te ii cts.; whisky, $2 20 to $2 2.'>; mess
pork opened at $80to $S1, atid closed at
$29; bacon (shoulders,) opened at 11 to 1$
cts.; and .closed at 16 to ÎSJ^ et«. The
moat of these articles exhibit ODly a slight
vnriwtion in prices during the whole of
that mouth. In Chicago and Cincinnati,
the rates generally for the same commodi
ties ruled a fraction or so higher; and in
Néw York we find but little dift'erenee be
tween the markets there and in the West.
The St. Louis Jour aal of Commerce draws
a fine picture of the commercial future ol
that city, and says it is generally conceded
that the trade there during the coming
fall will almost, if not quite, double that
of last season. The volume of business is
gradually increasing, and prices as a gen
eral thing were ruling very steadily. The
receipts of wheat, corn, oats aud rye were
lurge and meeting with fair demand at
following prices: Wheat, prime to choice
fall per bushel, $2 to $2 35; good to prime,
$1 85 to $2; lair fall, $1 [email protected]$1 75; com
mon fall, $1 30 to ^1 40; spring, $1 20 to
$180. Corn, (prime yellow and white,)
per bushel,80 to S3 cts.; mixed yellow and
white, 76 to 77 cts. Oats, prime, including
sacks, 42 to 50 cts. Barley, prime fall,
$2 25 to $1 35; prime spring, $1 to $1 10
The warne paper to which wo are indebt
ed for the above data refers to the seventh
annual statement of the trade and com
merce of Chicago, recently published, and
quotes liberally from the same. The com
parisons ofbusiness between the past years
and the year ending March Slst, 1SIÎ5, give
evidence of a large and steady increase.
For instance, for the year ending as per
date given, the receipts of flour at Chicago,
were 1,170,264 bbls. against 1,424,505, bbls.
during the preceding year. There are
nine flouring mills in Chicago, which,
manufactured in 1S63-64,228,128 bbls. ; and
in 1864-65, 290,287 bbls.
The above are only a few of the princi
pal items relating to the business of the
West. For want of space, we are unable
at present to pay further attention to the
subject. Enough is however given to af
ford our readers an insight into the vast
and increasing capacities of the West in
matters of productive enterprise, and the

hard to be borne. I have suffered—I have
been bored by creditors. My credit was

The Sex or the Oil W ells .—Before

cover that weils are very often the object
of a great deal of affection, are raised to
the dignity of sex, and as if admitted into
the human race assomanymoro. A "dry
hole" is always talked of as "it," and a
very contemptuous particle "it" some
times is. But if the littie puncture be
haves nobly; if it turns out a great flowing
well, it is sure to be "she." What the
swift engine is to the rider, what the proud
ship is to the sailor, what the sweet girl ii
to the lover, such ia your hundred-Darrel
well to its owners; a dear creature and a
she. They watch it by the hour; no pulse
ever thrilled more humanly beneath a doc
tor's finger than that yellowish green
stream to pulsate to their loving eyes. They
learn all about her"habits" and disposition,
a» if they meant to marry "her." They
know what it means when "she" gives a
sigh or a groan, as wells will. They abide
with "her" daytimes, and sit up with "her"
nights. They leave wife and children,
and cleave unto the well.— Correspondence
