     The river is stationary.  No business of importance on the levee.  The Cornelia, for Omaha, passed up late Thursday night, with a heavy freight.  The Kate Kearney, from Lexington, for St. Joseph, passed up at the same time.  She brought up a cargo of coal for the Diamond Mills.  The W. J. Lewis, of the Star line, arrived from St. Louis yesterday afternoon and left in the evening.  She brought a large lot of empty pork barrels, and laid at the pork-house all afternoon discharging them.  The Silver Bow, of the "O" line, is due to-day, and the Glasgow to-morrow.

     Miss Susan B. Anthony, so widely known as the founder of the New York Revolution, and the advocate of Woman Suffrage, visited the JOURNAL office yesterday.  She has been visiting her brother, D. R. Anthony, Esq., of Leavenworth, and will probably favor our people with a lecture on woman's rights and wrongs, before she returns to the East.

     The grading of Seventh street, from Grand avenue to William street, and the grading of High street, from Independence avenue to Eighth, is progressing rapidly, and is pleasing the people of those neighborhoods wonderfully.

     Louis Seivert, who used to be a barkeeper in this city, got fatally wounded in the Indian country, somewhere below Fort Scott, lately, in a row.

     Dr. Burhans, who had a fearful fall a few days ago, and whom everyone thought would die from the effects of it, is rapidly recovering under the watchful care of Dr. Dickinson, the City Physician, and the attendants at the City Hospital.

     Mr. Martin May had his pocket picked, Thursday night, while asleep on a train between here and Jefferson City.  A silver watch and $16 in money was lost.  The watch is marked S. Sleight, Co. C., Enrolled Militia of Mo.

     CHRISTINE MILLY. -- This wonderful natural curiosity, of two heads, four legs, and one body, represented one person, was on exhibition yesterday at Frank's Hall, both afternoon and evening, and a great deal of interest was manifested by sight seers concerning her.  She is truly a remarkable creature, and unlike most other phenomena of this character, is remarkably intelligent, converses fluently in good language to two persons at once -- dances polkas, schottisches and waltzes, sings two parts of an air at once, and moreover is very comely in face.  No one will regret having seen her.

     OUR NEW HOTEL.-- Doubtless there are a great many persons in this city who are not aware that a new hotel is to be opened here in a few day which for completeness, convenience, and all the modern appliances for comfort, is not surpassed anywhere.  We refer to Church's new hotel building on Walnut street, above Sixth.  The house is pleasantly situated, about 85x140 feet in size, is five stories high and has 103 sleeping rooms which are so arranged that they can be thrown into suites.  The dining hall and ball room is a marvel of beauty, and there are in the basement a large room for the bar and billiards, large enough to contain ten billiard tables, a large store room and wine cellar, and other useful apartments.  The arrangement for communicating with the office from the rooms of the guests is the most perfect yet invented.  In each of the rooms is a little ivory knob enclosed in another knob of black walnut, which when pressed on with the finger, rings a bell in the office and exhibits a figure on the annunciator corresponding with the number of the room; thus the attention of the clerk is directed to the annunciator, and the instrument tells him where to send the servant.  The house is being built by Mr. L. H. Church of this city, and is to be conducted by Mr. J. C. Parks, formerly the manager of the famous Lindell Hotel of St. Louis which was so unfortunately destroyed by fire several years ago.
