Paducaii, Ky., March 24. The river situation during the last 21 hours has not Improved. At 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon the gauge registered 50.7, and was rising at the rate of one tenth every two hours. About that time the wind began tp rise very rapidly, and since then has been blowing a perfect gale, and, on account of tho waves, it is impossible to form an accurate idea as to the stage of the river. Very fortunately for the business interests, the, wind is blowing toward the Illinois shore. The L C transfer 6toamer Osburn was unable to land with the St. Louis train, ou account of tho running of the waves, for two hours, 'ihe rise of half or three-quarters of a foot since last Monday night has spread over an immense territory, and many who wero high and dry last night found the water at their doorsteps Tuesday morning. Tho City of Clarksville Tuesday landed at a point of a mile from the normal bank of the river. The N. C. and St. L., at 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, notided the merchants that it could rjcoivo no more freight until further notice. Ihe tracks at the N. C. and J5l L. depot are to much under water that tha train Tuesday night was obliged to stop at E cventh street. Old river men disagree as to the seriousness of the local situation and the height which the Ohio may be expected to reach here. Most of them incline to the belief that not more than six or eight inches more can be expected here. Others say at least another foot will be recorded before the flood comes to a stand and begins to recede. Although the closing down of mills and the partial suspension of traffic by rail and river have made hundreds here idle, there are great signs of activity in certain quarters of the city, where goods are being removed from stores, wholesale houses, factories or tobacco warphousss. A foot more water, a conservative estimate, will put the lower floors of 200 dwellings and mercantile establishments under water. Great fears are entertained that the terrific winds of Tuesday night have injured HrookVyn, -111., just across tho river. Several minor accidents to shipping have taken -place, but so far nothing serious. TWO POLITICIANS rizht Hot Konui la the Capitol Hotel, lTtikforc. Frankfort, Ky., March 24.
