The Kvansvilio Courier .says:
"In Kvansviile we have a differeut
way of doing things. If a boat doct
nut leave nu thfl day she Is adver
tised, the shipper goes down to tho
wharf and demand his goods, and
at onee lesliips the goods ou an
other boat. A boat, cannot lay at
tliu Kvansviile wharf two or three
day- lor a load, and If nhu does not
go when advertised once, she never
need come bin k hero again for
Inight. Xo Pittsburg tricks al
