Tho opening ot tho presont week wni
signalized by n prolonged mow
storm, and tho prevailing cold snap is evi
dently tho beginning of winter in earnest
Tho rivor between this port and St. Louis
Is still falling, and thcro is. baroly enough
water for half loads. Yesterday a
good deal of Ice was floating in tho river
at St. Louis. Thcro can bo no doubt that
tho present cold woathcr will entirely seal
up tho Mississippi abovo us. "Tho bargo
lino," says tho St. Louis Democrat, "havo
concluded to swing around to Cairo, and
havo mado fnvorablo rales for through
freight from hero to Now Orleans via tho
Illinots Central to Cairo."
Tho market remains unchanged, and wo
do net anticipate a great incrcaso of busi
ness until after tho holidays.
Flour is stiflT in tho shipping grades
low nnd medium and wo note an advanco
of 25 cents per barrel. Hay, Corn nnd
Oats nro in good demand, and the market
Is growing moro active. Tho Ico In tho
Mississippi abovo Cairo, and tho fact that
tho Iron Mountain railroad rofuses to re
ceive freight for tho Mississippi Central
has mado Cairo much tho' bettor
market.for all theso article, nnd indeed of
all supplies sold in St. Louis. Apples nro
active, and tho supply Is not equal to thodc-
mand. Mess Pork Is quoted at $18 75(3VS13-

Tho depression that has characterized
our Hour market during tho put fow
months is nscribablo to causes of a tempo
rary character, and tho signs of revival
aro rapidly multiplying. Elsowhoro tho
same causes havo had llko, andjoven greatcr
effect. A prominent Chics eo operator
writes to a St. LouU morchantu
"Our flour market has fizzled out. Wo
havo fallen to tho lovol of a ono borso
town. Our receipts have dropped down
to 3, 4, 5 and 8,000 bbls per day, and thrco
fourths of them pass through without be
ing offered for salo. We aro doing no bu
sines with Now Orleans, and tho imracdl
nto future is by no moans promising."
Tho elovatots will bo put Into oporntlon
next weok, whon largo quantities of Corn
and othor grain will be shlppod through
Cairo in bulk for points below. ,
