To day the Steamer Ruthven arrived from Galveston with considerable freight. she departed in the evening and I let Bob go on her as a hand for one trip. Lieut. Sterling of the Guards & Capt. Bolling of the Rifles came up on the Steamer. Business pretty brisk. The boys still at work with the potatoes. Nothing doing on my house. weather changeable and warm.
