To day the Steamer Lone Star came down the river but in consequence of the drift having formed a raft above the mill road bridge, she could not get through. The Capt. chartered the Steamer Swan to go to Galveston, in lieu of the Lone Star. James Wrigley & Mrs. Gayle left on the Swan for Galveston. The river is still rising. weather clear & pleasant.
