     Plasterers wanted.  Five dollars a day and steady work guaranteed.  Apply to R. S. Reaves, corner of Eleventh and Hackberry streets.

     A fellow who stationed himself yesterday on the north end of the river bridge and exacted tolls from passengers, had his little game nicely stopped by J. B. Bryans, foreman, and Gus Hahner.  Bryant "went for"  the petty swindler with much energy and gave him a pair of black eyes as a memento of their meeting.

     The Kate Kearney came up yesterday from Lexington with a cargo of coal.  The Viola Belle is due from above for St. Louis and doubtless passed down last night.  The W. J. Lewis is over due from St. Louis, and if she arrives this morning will return this afternoon.  The river is still rising rapidly.

     Trains run at half fare to the Ottawa land sales.

     There were three cases of intoxication before the Recorder yesterday, and one case of fighting.

     The veteran preacher, Rev. Peter Cartwright, who is widely known as one of the pioneer missionaries of hte West, and as having served more years in the ministry than almost any other preacher of the century, delivered an address last evening at Frank's Hall to an attentive audience.

     Deputy Marshal Malloy attempted yesterday to arrest a drunken man who was "raising Ned" in Frees's shoe shop on Main street near Sixth.  The man showed fight and a struggle ensued.  The officer, however, soon got the best of his wrathful assailant and marched him off to the calaboose.

     Although Marshal Hayden now resides "out of town" we are requested to say that a deputy can be found at all hours at the Court House by parties requiring his services.
