(From our own correspondent.]
London, Saturday, March 20, 1880.
The money market during the present week has assumed a
somewhat easier appearance ; but the rates, of discount have
not varied to any important extent. The mercantile inquiry
has been upon a very moderate scale, and c»in has continued toreturn from provincial
circulation,
notwithstanding the
approach of a general election. The holidays and the elections
will absorb a large amount of attention during the next fortnight or three weeks, and business is expected to rule quiet
but the tone is good, as money remains cheap, and the weather
is still very favorable for the completion of the Spring sowings^
The Prime Minister, in his speech in the House of Lords, on
Monday night spoke discouragingly of the political prospect
abroad, and alluded specially to the danger which attended
the maintenance of large armies; but his remarks were probably
intended to influence the election, as it is the conservative
policy to maintain that this country's influence is necessary to
preserve the peace of Europe. The remark appears to have

had no

effect either

upon the Stock Exchange or upon

trade.

the disinclination shown to operate, in consequence of ihe in 1872. It seems to have been a losing basineM to all conapproaching holidays and elections. There seems to be no cerned. What Messrs. Morgan & Co. now propose is to make
reason for expecting dearer money. The exchanges &re favor- a new company with a capital of 53,500,000 in ordinary shares
able to us, and some gold has Deen received from Paris. Oar and §2,000,000 in preference shares, the ordinary shares to be
liabilities abroad will soon be diminishing, as our imports of exchanged for the exi.sting bonds at par and the preference to
will be falling off; and the probability is that
during the Summer months a very easy tone will pervade the money market. There is no expectation of a decline
to low rates of discount, such as those which were current last
Summer; but the probability is that the Bank rate will remain at
3 per cent and the open inarket rate will rule somewhat b^low
What will be
it, until the Autumal demand shall have set in.
the extent of that demand cannot be answered now, but there

be given in payment of overdue coupons and of the expenses of
reorganization, receivers' debts. &c.
In making this proposal,
the Arm surrenders all preferential claims to tlie money due to
it for coupons which it bought from the bondholders bat which
were. never paid by the company, as also to interest allowed it
by the decree of foreclosure. This interest amounts to $207,943.
We have had another week of remarkably fine Alarch

seems to be some expectation of greater activity in business,
and an increase in general enterprise, sufficient to place
the market upon a linner basis. The elections have not yet
checked the return of gold from provincial circulation, and if
the gold continues to come back from the country, it ui;iy l)e
concluded that the circulation is large enough for the purposes
required. In any case, it is a small matter, and should the
election expenses affect the money market in any way, it would
only be for a very brief period. The present quotations for

company has proved

to be a great success. The applications
are understood to have amounted to £5,000,000, or to four
times the amount required.
Messrs. J. S. Morgan & Co. have issued a long circular in

made with

undoubtedly a more than usually
promising agricultural prospect, the Spring sowings being
under the pi-ocew* of completion after a very favorable seeding
time. The land is in excellent condition, and if April should
prove to be as seasonable as the present month, vegetation will
undoubtedly^ make a vigorous and healthy start. It is said by
some that vegetation is in a backward state, but at this period
of the year it cannot be regarded as a drawback. The nights
have been cold, while the days have been remarkably bright.
No rain has fallen for some time, and the frosts we have had
are not calculated, therefore, to intlict any damage on the tender shoots. Alternate frost and rain are very injurious; but as
there has been an absence of the latter, no damage is apprehended, nor is there any to be perceived. After so sea-sonable a
Winter, the farmers naturally look forward to a favorable year;
and if April should be true to its traditions, genial showers and
sunshine peculiar to that month will bring vegetation forward
at a rapid pace. This will be very neces-sary, for at the present
time vegetable food is very scarce and dear, and there is not
likely to be any increase in the supply until we have arrived at'
a more growing period. Some are of opinion that the season
will be a late one, but we are not yet in a position to judge if
this will be the case.
It is certainly true that the season is by
no means forward, but a bright Spring and Summer would
exercise a speedy influence and bring the crops rapidly forward
towards maturity. An early season in Europe would undoubtedly have considerable effect upon the trade for cereal produce,
as our supplies are very scanty, and, as far as this country is
con cerned, very little sound wheat is to be procured.
The average deliveries of British farmers since harvest have
been about 130,000 quarters weekly, being a reduction of about
sixty per cent compared with last season. According to the last
return they were under 100,000 quarters, and the probability is
that even at this comparatively early period of the season home
supplies at market will continue to diminish. Po.ssibly there
may have been some restriction of late, caused by the engagements of fanners and their hands in the fields but the same
remark applies to previous years, and last j-ear the weekly deliveries were 207,000 quarters.
It is not only evident, but it is
a well-known fact, that there is very little English wheat in the
country, and that there is very little of sound quality. The
latest average is only 44s. Sd. per quarter, from which it has been
argued that wheat is cheap but which, as any practical person
knows, shows how wretched is the quality of home-grown
produce. Good wheat is fairly worth 58s. to OOs, per quarter,
and choice sorts more. This is not a high quotation, but it
A large

quantity of the English crop has been sold at 30s. to 35e. per
quarter, and if the value of the wheat disposed of upon the
farm had been included in the Gazette average, the result
would have been more unsatisfactory to the producer. The
result to the farmer,
whether such inferior parcels are
included in the return or not, is naturally the same,
but the average
would have worked out at a lower
The configure, indicating not cheapness but inferiority.
sumption of bread in the country is still very large, and if
British fanners cannot deliver more than 100,000 quarters
weekly of nferior produce, it is clear that our demands upon
foreign countries must continue great for some time to come.
We shall require some 350,000 quarters of wheat and flour
from abroad weeklj-, and a.s we have not been importing to that
extent of late our stocks of foreign produce at our ontports
have become much reduced. Milleis, however, are as reluctant
to buy in excess of their requirements as holders are to pi-ess
sales. Hence, the trade wears an inactive appearance, and there
is not much variation in prices.
Buyers look forward to larger

penditure of the last few years, the badness of trade, and the
diminished harvests, they are not in such a condition as to lead
to any anxiety. Six years ago Mr. Gladstone appealed to the
country, and threw out, as an encouragement to vote for his
party, a suggestion that the income tax should be abolished.

As the country is not in a deplorable financial state, while ther» J
are prospects of improvement, electors will, no doubt, keep the

—

main point of contention in view, and that is, Shall the past
foreign policy of the Government be continued and the present
Ministry be confirmed in power ? The issue is a very important
one, and one which must materially affect the future.
In order to hasten the dissolution of Parliament, so that the
early and have the epportunity of a
good working session before it, the necessary supplies are being
voted, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer has already delivered
his financial statement.
He stated that the estimated revenue
for the year had been £83,055,000, against an expenditure of
£81,155,000, .showing a surplus of £1,900,000. This, however,
was turned into a deficit of £1,160,000 by a vote of credit of
£3,000,000 taken on account of the South African war. The
yield of revenue had also fallen short of the estimate by
£2,195,000, making the total deficit £3,355,000. The decrease
in the revenue from spirits, due partly to diminished incomes,
and patily to the more temperate habits of the people, amounted.
to £660,000 in customs and £^00,000 in excise.
There had also
been a falling off of £940,000 in the malt duty; but the con-

new Parliament may meet

sumption of tea, coffee, &c., had been maintained.
From a
moral point of view, this is satisfactory, and it is to be hoped
that foreign nations will not be able to say in future that any
extra expenditure is met by increased revenue derived from
intoxicating drinks. The expenditure for 1880-81 is estimated
at £81,486,472, and the revenue at £81,560,000. Tha probate
duty on testSite estates is to be increased, from which an additional revenue of £700,000 is expected. Mr. Dodd, an authority, says that that estimate is considerably below the mark,
which must certainly be good news to Sir Stafford Northcote.
The floating debt, which is considerable, it is proposed to
gradually reduce by the issue of Terminable Annuities; but
beyond the proposed alteration in the probate duty, there is to
be no change in taxation. The income tax remains at 5d. in the
£1, and the total amount of funded and unfunded debt and of

based on the conclusion that no ca.sh dividend could be paid
until the coupons (ir income bonds had been paid paid in ca.sh,
whether there were net earnings, as described in the mortgage,
or not. _" The Court," said Judge Blatchford, " does not agree
to this interpretation of the instrument, a^d does not decide
what interpretation shall b(i put on the instrument. It simply
decides that the plaiuliirs contention is untenable." He also
decides that no case for restraining the payment of the consolidated mortgage bond coupons due Jlay 1 had been made out,
and the application for that injunction was denied. Judge
Blatchford took occasion to say that the presentation of the bill
unsworn to, without any supporting amdavit.s, and not even
sworn to on information and belief, was one of the most jejtme
applications ever made to him.

An interesting statement of bank dividends in Boston is
made by Mr. Martin of that city in his mouthly compilation of
interest and dividend payments, and we quote it as a compact
summary showing the results of banking in Boston during the
past sii months. He says
:

" The turning point In bank dividends has come in earnest after a long
period of depression. For tlie six mouths eudiiig one year ago there were
twenfy-two banks paying 2 per I'cut, and last Oitober tweniy-oue baiikn.

The money market has ruled somewhat easier the past day
or two, but stockholders have in some cases still paid a commission of 1-64 to 1-32 per day for call loans in addition to 6 per
cent; early in the week 1-16 commission was paid. Government bond dealers have been supplied at 4(g5 per cent. Prime
commercial paper sells at 5 a6 per cent.
The Bank

of England

Thursday showed a decline of
and the reserve was 43J^ per cent, against
on

£316,000 in specie,
46 per cent the previous week.

The discount

rate remains at 3

The last statement of the New York City Clearing-House
banks, issued March 27, showed an increase of $100,525 in
the excess above their 25 per cent legal reserve, the whole of such
excess being $961,175, against I860 650 the previous week.

bonds have been quite moderate. The better cla-sses of the
Southern State issues are held at high prices, and the lowpriced bonds are in a condition where they are not likely to be
much influenced by any material changes in their status before
next Fall.
Railroad bonds are generally strong for the investment iss ues,
but active speculation at the Board runs now more on st ocks
than bonds.

Railroad and Ilf Iscellaneous Stocks. The .stock market
has been rather active, but exceedingly irregular. The wide
fluctuations in Pacific Mail and Manhattan Elevated have still
been the leading feature of the market. The movements
of the first-named stock are now, as always, controlled by
the few prominent operators who happen to be manipulating its price. The Manhattan stock fluctuations have baffled
the Street, and the strong buying of the past two days
has indicated that some parties of large means were purchasers,
although a good deal of the business was undoubtedly caused
by the purchases for shorts. It would hardly seem probable
that the rumor of the company's defaulting and giving up its
leases will be verified, as this corporation holds the control of
all the elevated roads, and this is prospectively too valuable a
right for capitalists to ignore it. The coal companies have
made another advance in jinthracite, and are endeavoring to
make the most money out of the smaller output. The Delaware 4 Hudson Canal Company's prices are now as follows:
Furnace lamp,:4^3 90, an advance of 40 cents per ton; steamer
lump, grate and egg, |4, an advance of 30 cents per ton; stove,
$4, no change; chestnut, $4, on advance of 10 cents per ton.
The earnings on prominent railroads are well kept up and
give much support to the high prices of the respective stocks.
Total sales of leading stocks for the week ending Thursday,
and the range in prices for the year 1879 and from Jan. 1, 1880,
to date, were as follows:

"The financial condition of the Cincinnati & Springfield Railway has improved, and that road has been further strengthened
by the transfer to its tracks, between Dayton and Cincinnati, of
the traffic of the Atlantic & Great Western Railroad, under an
agreement which took eifect on May 1. There is every prospect that henceforward the Cincinnati & Springfield will be
able to meet its obligations and operating cost. The legal
situation in respect oi the Indianapolis & St. Louis Railroad,
th.) other leased line of this company, remains unchanged since
the last report. The litigation in connection with that road,
which had been 'inaugurated by the St. Louis Alton & Terre
Hifute Railroad Company, is still pending. The pool with the
Cincinnati Hamilton & Dayton Railroad Company has continued
in successful operation throughout the year. A pool of gro.ss
earnings was made between this company, the Indianapolis &
St. Louis and the Wabash Railway Company, which took effect
June 1. The current working of this arrangement has been
very satisfactory and to the best interests of the several roads.
"It is gratifying to be able to state that the floating indebtedness of the company heretofore existing, caused by advances
to leased lines under contracts of long standing, has been liquidated during the year.
To accomplish this object, the bonded
indebtedness of the company has been increased !i=228,000, and
now stands at $6,337,000."

(For the year ending December 31. 1879.)
The annual report gives the gross earnings for 1879 a-s
13,758,967 ; the total operating expenses and interest on bonds,
$3,234, "lOl, leaving net earnings, $,'j24,466, out of which dividend No. 15, of 2^ per cent, was declared payable February 2,
1880, $374,770, leaving the net surplus for the yea,r, $I4!),C!l(i.
The earnings and expenses of the year, compared with those of
1878, showed an increase in gross earnings of |230,254 and a
decrea.se in expenses of $15,420.
Details of the operations and earnings in 1879, compared with
three preceding years, are ^iven in the tables below. With an
increase of 17 97 per cent in the freight tonnage, there was a
decrease of 7'31 per cent in the ton rate per mile. The expense
of freight per ton mile showed a decrease of 12-21 per cent. The
passengers carried one mile showed an increase of 23'89 per
cent iu the through and of 9 '66 per cent in the local passenger
traflic.
The report says
"The extraordinary gross freight rate of the year is to be
noted, dropping below the -rate of any preceding year, and
averaging, as it is seen, less than seven miles per ton mile.
When it is stated that through or competitive tonnage forms
79*71 per cent of the entire freight traffic of the railway, it will
be understood how vital to net revenue is the maintenance of
reasonably remunerative rates." * * * "The addition of a
single mill upon the year's freight traffic equals a net earning
exceeding $400,000. Allusion was made in the previous annual
report to pooling contracts, and to certain conservative agreements between the trunk roads, which also included most of the
principal Western rail lines." * * » " United and eifective
action, for the first time under the trunk lines agreements, relieved the situation during August, and thenceforward, for the
remainder of the year, the results of operation improved
steadily." * * * "The advances to the leased lines and payments
on account of construction work during the year have been

City of Toledo Bonds. The Boston Transcript says: " The
Council of Toledo, Ohio, on account of certain alleged
informalities in connection with the issue of outstanding bonds
of the city, has determined ujion the payment and retirement
of these bonds, and much credit is claimed for the city on
account of this action. Examined upon its merits, however,
the matter is not so creditable as it might be, for, plainly
stated, the situation Ls this: The city of Toledo, needing money
for improvements and other purposes, issued bonds, some bearing interest at 7 and others at 8 per cent. These were sought
as a good investment, and as the money market grew easy
increased in value, so that the price of the bonds has gone as
high as 16 per cent above par. Now a discovery is made that
there were informalities connected with the issue of the bonds,
the responsibility for which rests entirely upon the borrowers
and not upon the lenders, whereupon the former, namely, the
city of Toledo, takes advantage of the fact to refund its debt,
represented by these bonds, on terms more favorable to itself.
The Common Council has provided for the issue of a new consolidated 6 per cent bond, which will be exchanged for the old
bonds at par and accrued interest. If holders of the old bonds
prefer they will be paid in cash the par value and accrued
interest of the securities.'

Louisville & Nashville. At the special meeting of stockLouisville, the act lately passed by the Kentucky
Legislature was read, amending the charter so a~s to allow the
company to operate, lease or purchase any railroad in any other
State or States, and also to purchase and hold a majority of
the capital stock of any railroad company chartered by any
other State or States, in order to secure to the company the
control in the management and operation of the said railroads.
Also an act amending the charter so as to enable the c(mipany
to borrow money for the interests of the stockholders, and to
tLat end to execute and sell its negotiable mortgages upon its
rights, franchises and privileges, and its railroads and other
property, to secure said bonds. Both of these acts were unaniholders, in

mously approved.
The meeting then voted successively

to

approve the purchase

of a controlling interest in the Nashville Chattanooga & St.
Louis ; the purchase from John J. Cisco and othera of a controlling interest in the Mobile & Montgomery ; the purchase
from D. F. Sullivan of the Pensacola and the Pensacola &
Selma roads; the pureha.se of the Na.shville Chattanooga & St.
Louis Company's interest in the Evansville Owensboro A; Nashville, and its lease of the St. Louis & Southeastern; the agreement for the purchase of the New Orleans & Mobile road; the
contract with the Union Express Company, and the purchase of

the Georgia Western.
In relation to the Georeia Western, President Newcomb said
that the road-bed extenaed 27 miles west from Atlanta, and
with small expenditure it could be laid with track. The road
could be extended to Binningham or Blount Springs by an outlay of from $2,500,000 to $3,000,000.

Madison & Portage.— A despatch from Milwaukee, March 31
" The 39 miles of road running from Madison to Portage,
which for some time have been operated by the Milwaukee &
St. Paul Railway Company, will be sold at public auction on
April 6, under a judgment of foreclosure and sale. The judgment of foreclosure is rendered in favor of the Milwaukee &
St. Paul Company, which, by the sale, will acquire full title to
the line, with land grant made by Congress, the road-bed, rolling stock, depot grounds, shops, &c. The land grant consists of

says

:

every alternate section of land for six sections in width on each
side of the road."

Manhattan Elevated Railroad.—At the great decline in the
stock of this company, it seems more than probable that some
combination of capitalists will take hold of it, and thereby gain
control of the whole system of rapid transit roads in New York
city.
For this purpose the stock would seem to be easily worth
25, and the large profits of the New York Elevated are as much
in favor of this as the alleged losses on the Second avenue line
are against it.
Of the various street rumors, the Tiimi
reports
It was
asserted that the Manhattan Company had
formally notified the two leased companies of its inability to
continue to pay the guaranteed dividend of 10 per cent, and
had asked to' have a new lease made out at 7 or 8 per cent.
This, it was *dd, the directors of the New York Elevated CoraEany had refused to agree to, and that consequently the Manattan Company would soon cease to exist.
Figures were
produced to show that the New York Company has been earning l~/6 per cent on its third avenue line and 7 per cent on its
Ninth avenue line, and that the Metropolitan Company has
earned but 4 per cent on its Sixth avenue line, while its Second
:

357

avenue

line is being run at a loss.
In this connection it ws»
asserted that it had been determined to discontinue the running*
of trains on the Second avenue route for the present. These
stories, told with convincing circumstantiality of detail, knwked
Manhattan stock to 2tt>^ and Metropolitan stock to H7>j. Mr.
Jose F. De Nitvarro, when questioned on the sabject, acknowledged that the New York Loan and Imprrivement Company had
sold the greater portion of its Manhattan shares, but denied the
remainder of the rumors in the most emphatic manner. He
denounced as a lie the statement that any of the company's
Metropolitan shares had been disposed of, and claimed that
they are still, to the number of 5,000, in the keeping of the
Central Trust Company. In regard to the alleged breaking of
the lease, he said he would regard such a proceeding as criminal,
and would be one of the thirteen directors to contribute $100,000
each before consenting to such a thing. As a matter <if fact,
he a-sserted, the Manliattan Company, after paying the first
quarterly dividend of 2^2 per cent on the stock of both n)adj<^
had a surplus left of between $300,000 and $400,000, and wilt
have no bonded interest to meet until July.
It is reported that Mr. C^ru« W. Field desires to haVo the'
Manhattan lea-se of the New lork Elevated road broken, as the

ports Mr. A. H. Barney as saying " I know that Mr. Field is
favor of it, and has been urging the thing in a quiet way
among our directors and stockholders, but I cannot tell you
:

m

anything definite about it."
—The directors have decided against the proposition to extend
the morning and evening "commission" hours on the"L"'
roads during which the fare is only flv^ cents and also^
against the other suggestion that the trains on the Sixth and
Second avenue branches shall be run all night. This decision i»
merely not to make any change in the present manner of running the roads, either m the matter of fares or time.

publican, of JIaK-h 30, in commenting upf>n the movements in
this company's stock, remarks : " For once the sharp break in
Chattannoga on Saturday can be ascribed to a definite, and, in
some respects, reasonable cause. The holders of long stock have
buoyed their hopes of an advance movement for two weeks past
upon the prospect of a large increase in the usual April dikidend,
but the directors of the Chattanooga Company met on Saturday
and declared a dividend of only 2 per cent, in place of the 15 per

cent that was confidently expected, and the 30 or 50 per cent
some sanguine bulls were talking about a month or so ago."
•'
* "It will be interesting therefore to review such facts as
are obtainable bearing upon this question of an extra cash dividend. As already stated the surplus earnings of the Chattanooga for the six months ending to-morrow have been nearly

Owensboro & Nashville road, and must be compensated for
when that road is turned over to the Louisville & Nashville,

arrives at this conclusion with resrard to the rata of consumption per spindle, may be seen in the following extract from the

Liverpool Pott above referred to
pretty certain that the rate of consumption has been
increased by the resort to lower counts of yam, occasioned by
the production of what are termed "dutyfree good«" for
India. The total weekly consumpticm of cotton Ut, say. 65,000
bales of 400 lbs.; of this total 15,000 bales will go to supply
goods for home consumption, leaving 50.000 for export fabricx,
of which one-third, or the product of 16,660 bales goes to India.
Perhaps one-half of these is replaciMl by " duty free goocU."
These goods will weigh the same as before— an H]4 lb. shirting
will weigh 8J4 lb.— but the new goods are thought to contain
6 per cent more cotton and 5 per cent less suie than the old
ones, or about 5 oz. more cotton in each piece than before.
Some authorities indeed estim.ate the difference at only 3 to 4
percent. Five per cent on 8.330 bales would give a little orer
400 bales per week. We believe that the Bolton trade is also
consuming on average about 5 per cent more cotton, owing to a
reduction in the counts of yam spun. This on 6,000 bales per
week, the estimated takings of the Bolton district, would gtve
another 800 bales per week— making, with the 400 bales increased consumption on Indian account, a total of 780 bales.
But if we call tlie increase in all departments, owing to the
resort to coarser counts of yam, 1,000 bales per week, the surplus stock of cotton in the hands of spinners at the end of February would still be about 183,000 bales of 400 lbs. An addition
of 1,000 bales per week would be equal to about l)^ per cent on
the total consumption of 65,000 bales of 400 lbs., and would raise
the rate per spindle to 34-29 lbs. per annum, against the maximum of 33'77 touched in 1871, when the mills were working
four hours per day more than they are now.

BRE A.DSTnFFS.
FRIDAT, P. M., April

2,

1880.

There was a general decline in flour and meal early in th»
week, under a pres.sure to sell in the face of a dull demand, and
a material decline in all descriptions of grain. Since Tuesday,
however, there has been more steadinees, though without,
any recovery in values or increase in the volume of business.
To-day, at some further concessions, there was more doing for
export, at |5 40@$6 for good to choice shipping extras from
Winter wheat.
Wheat has suffered a farther and material decline. The lowest
figures of the week were made on Tuesday, under dall foreign
advices, lower Western markets, the indications of an early
reopening of lake navigation, and advancing ocean freights.
The sales on Tuesday embraced No. 1 white, $1 32 for March
and May, and $1 33 for April; No, 2 red Winter, $1 38 for
March and April, $1 37 for May, and $1 32]^ for June; No. 3
red Winter, on the spot, $1 30, and No. 2 Spring, $1 28 ?6. The
improvement since has been partial and fitful. To'day the
market was weak, the sales for future delivery embracing No.
2 red Winter at $1 34% for May, No. 1 white at $1 29M for
May, and No. 2 Spring, $1 29?i for May. This afternoon there
was some recovery; No. 1 white, $1 33 for April, and $1 Z\@
$1 31^ for May, and;.No. 2 red Winter, |1 37M@n 38 for
April, and $1 35^®.?! 36^ for May.
Indian corn also declined— No. 2 mixed sold down to 53>^®
54c. for old and 54?i@o5c. for new, and No. 2 white 56M@57c.
on the spot. At these prices the demand was very active. The
business for future delivery was also large, as low as 52@52^e.
for No. 2 new mixed for April and 49%@50c. for May. There
was yesterday a partial improvement on the foregoing prices,
and the tendency was slightly upward. To-day com waa
slightly firmer on the spot, new No. 2 mixed selling at 54^e.»
but futures without improvement. The receipts at the West,

week were more than twice as large as last year.
Rye has declined, and prime No. 1 State sold at 92c. Barley

last

Oats gave way sharply under speculativeNo. 2 mixed selling as low as 38J6c. on
the spot, 39c. for April, and 38>^c. for May ; and No. 2 white
39c. on the spot—a decline of about 25 per cent f romthe highest

has been

less active.

efforts to depress prices.

The recovery, however, was more
decided than in corn or wheat. To-day the market was strong
and active on the spot, No. 2 graded selling at 40c. for mixed
and 41e. for white.

Pridat, P. M., April

Business has been quiet the pa-st week with the package
houses, but there was a moderate degree of animation in the
jobbing branches of the trade, with most relative activity in
department goods. The tone of the market was steady, but
the upward tendency of prices has apparently been cheeked,
and there has therefore been little disposition on the part of
whole.sale buyers to anticipate future wants, and their purchases were consequently restricted to such quantities of
seasonable goods as are required for the renewal of assortments.
Agents for domestic cotton and woolen goods, ginghams, &c.,
have still on record a good many orders for goods in process of
manufacture, and ttocks are exceptionally light for the time of
year, notwithstanding the late lull in the demand, which is
regarded as perfectly natural in view of the heavy movement
that has occurred during the past four months.
Domestic Cotton Goods. The e.xports of domestics have been
light the past week, only 659 packages having been shipped from
this port, including 281 to Great Britain, 90 to Briti.sh North
American Colonies, 65 to Brazil, 63 to Venezuela, 42 to Hayti,
27 to Cuba, and some small lots to other foreign markets. The
demand at first hands was comparatively light, and governed
by actual requirements, save in the case of goods adapted to
conversion purposes, in which considerable transactions were
reported.
Brown cottons ruled quiet and eteady, and there
was a less active demand for bleached *ottons and wide sheetings, but ducks were in good request by converters, and large
deliveries of cottonades and camlets were made by agents on
account of former orders. Denims, tickings and other makes of
colored cottons were in steady though moderate demand, at
unchanged prices. Print cloths were quiet and weak, sales of
64x64s and 56xfiOs having been

FoREioN Det Goods.—The market for imported fabrics was
moderately active, and prices were steady as a rule, though
concessions were made on low-grade black and colored silks in
order to move accumulations. Fine black and colored silks were
