The Spread Eagle will leave for Graf ton this evening and probably make daily trips to St. Louis hereafter and triweekly trips to Graf ton. There is considerable disappointment among shippers, between here and Grafton, we understand, that Capt. Bruner is not to command the new steamer Hudson. Not that there is any feeling against the commander appointed, who is beyond question an excellent and well qualified gentleman, but simply because every one "all along shore" knows Capt.

A publio meeting was held at North Alton last evening to hearth* report of Messrs Rutfedge, McGlnnls and Krug, the committee appointed to obtain subscriptions to a fund for boring for a deeper vein ol coal, The committee made a favorable report of their progress, althoneh they had not obtained asjlarge a response to their efforts as they hoped. They were instructed to proceed with their work and Messrs. B. Sohiess and Louis Betz were added to the committee. They will continue their canvass in this city and hope to receive many additional subscriptions. We are informed that the cost of boring 1,000 feet will be about $8,000 and the committee want to raise that amount, if- possible, though many believe that coal will be found before a depth of 600 feet is reached. Belief in the existence of a deeper vein of coal at N»rth Alton is general among miners there, and we certainly hope their expectations will be realised. Even if no eoal is found many think that oil or natural gas will be struck. In support of this theory Mr. Sohiess says that oil exudes In the railroad cut near the crossing of the road from Up<. per Alton to Coal Branch.
