CONDITION OP THK IlIVKRs.
During the pntt twenty-four hours the
river has risen nbout ono foot. At Cin
cinunti tho river has fallen several fetit,
caused by the gorgo nbovo Lawronceburg
giving away. At Pittsburg tho river has
0 feet in tlio channel. Tho Ico In the Al
leghany nnd Monongnhcln rivers shows no
signs of breaking up.
The Ohio is rising rapidly bolow Louis
vllle, and the river is in a better boating
condition than it has been for several
months, nnd everyday betters tho channel
Tho slow rise continues in tlio Missis
sippl, nnd it is beliuvcd that there Is only
ono lecborgs between horo nnd SL Louis,
nnd thnt will no doubt havo to give way
beforo long. At St. Louis, great efforts
have been mado to clear that harbor of the
Ice that has been nn eye-sore to tho cltl
xens of that placo during tho winter, but
tho undertaking was more than was bar
gained for, und but littlo good was done
Tho Cumberland river Is reported rising
The Missouri is ngain rising, nnd if
tho riio Is of any consequence, it will fill
tho channol of the Mississippi up to a fair
stage, and tho great artery of commerce
will soon bo opened
From horo to Louisville nothing remain
to obstruct navigation, which is resumed
oncoagaln, nnd every day is expected lo
bring us nn arrival from that region
Abovo there consiJorablo Ico can bo found
(bating, still it will bo of but littlo hinder-
anco to boats. Below hero no danger need
be apprehended for thero Is plenty of
water, and stonmcrs can loud horc to their
HUSINKSS AND WEATItr.lt.
Business on the landings was very ac
tive. Thero is plenty ot freight ready for
shipment and largo amounts arrive daily,
Tho weather was cloudy and pleasant
nnd tho clouds betoken a regular seige of
rain, which would bo very acceptable
Tho Atlantic returned to St. Louis
wlthn couplo of barges in tow. The
tow sho brought uut, will be towed south
by the Mary Alice to-day.
Tho Mallle Itagoti has decided to load
hero fur Memphis, und suiting tho action
to tho word, sho commenced doing so soon
after her arrivnl.
Tho Mary Houston from Louisvilc,
passed down with a big trip. She brought
down tho hull af tho ntw steamer Geo, C.
Woolf, which will bo towed to St. Louis by
tho Illinois as sooif as tlio rivor opens
The Thompson Dunn and Potomac
pased up tho Ohio with big trips of pas
songers, Tho Louisville, which left here
soveral days ago, will ro-sliip hor trip at
Ev.'insvlllo nnd load for Hew Orleans.
