The City Council [equ]alizes today.

Harry Hills says he sells cheaper than any other man in the city. Try him.

SPRING OPENING. – The ladies will be pleased to learn that Miss King will be ready to-morrow to exhibit her new supply of spring and summer bonnets. They are invited to call.

THE RIVER. – The river opposite continues to fall slowly. The Warsaw is the regular packet for St. Louis, and the Jonny Whipple for Davenport, this morning.

THE DES MOINES. – After the late heavy rains the Des Moines was rising again on Tuesday – over a foot at Des Moines and about six inches at Eddyville. The locks are still overflowed.

The K. Ft. D. M. & M. R. R. is repaid so that trains run through on time from end to end. Large freight trains come in daily.
