make any contract for the direct purchase of the quicksilver from the
company ; and it became evident fot he Directors that either a combi¬
nation arrangement must be made with other producers of quicksilver
in California, or a competition for the sale of quicksilver in the home and
foreigu markets would ensue, which could not fail to lower the price of
the article aDd seiiously injure, if not entirely destroy, all profits incident
to ite mining and manufacture.
After cou-iderable negotiation, an arr mgement for two years, from
April 1, 1868, was entered into between the several quicksilver mining

ratified by the Board of Directors.

activity, a tended with a
slight decline in prices. The purchases of foreign bankers for ship¬
ment have so glutted the
exchange market that bond bill* have sold
at
very low figures, good names being negotiated with difficulty at
108@108f. This class of dealers have consequently suspended
buj ing, and are holding their bonds until an improvement in the
rate for bills encourages the renewal of shipments.
The large
amount of bonds placed recently
upon the foreign markets has
somewhat depressed prices abroid, which aLo has had a tendency
to ke p the market here quiet.
The possibility of money being
more or less stringent about the beginning of April has made dealers
generally indifferent about buying, and indeed disposed to encourage
lower prices.
It is significant, however, that under these adverse
influences there has been no special effort to put down the market,
none
apparently thinking it safe to sell bonds which they are not
prepared to deliver. Among leading dealers there is an idea that,
after these temporary occasions of weakness, the market will
recover its late
elasticity, with a fresh advance throughout the list.
The foreign bankers are very generally of opinion that the effect of
the public credit bill upon foreign-investors has not yet exhausted its
force, and that after the bonds sent out lately have been distributed,
prices will further advance and more bonds be required. In some
quarters, it is confidently anticipated that the Secretary of thA
Treasury will early call for proposals for the sale of bonds for gold*
which, to a certain extent, is an element of strength.
To day being Good Friday aud a holiday, at the Boards there
has been no business on which1 to base quotations, and we therefore

in

gold, during the
week, has been the calling in of a large amount of loaned coin and
the holding it off the market, viih a view
apparently to compelling
these who have sold for future delivery to
boy. The effect was to
enhance the loaning rate to very high figures,
much as ^ per cent
per day “ fur borrowing ” having been paid ; but the premium has
remained comparatively stationary, the low rates of
exchange and
the expectation of a continued
supply of bond bills having pro¬
duced an iLdisposit on to buy. As usual at this season, the
foreign
merchants are largely “ short ” oa gold ; and as the
present stock
on the market is
very low, the larger bidders make it their policy
to compel borrowers to
pay high rates oa their loans. There ap}‘ears to be some ground lor expecting that the Secretary of the
Treasury will early put coin on the market, either by payi g the
May inteiest before maturity or by exchanging gold for bonds
through public proposals.

Board during the week

i East India Goods are firmer for Hemp and Gunny Cloth,
with more doing, and Seed, Bags, Saltpetre, <fcc., quite firm.
Metals have shown great activity in Iron and Copper,
with a fair business in Tin, Lead, and Spelter—prices ruling
firm iu all cases, except for Copper, in which at some conces¬
sion the sales for present and future delivery amount to
about five million pounds.
Fish and Fruit have been weak.
Hops less active and
close heavy. Hay in fair demand.
Whiskey unchanged.
Tallow closes dull, but there has been some activity iu Stearine, Building Materials are dull and unsettled.
Wool has been quiet, but prices rule firm , assortments are
not attractive, and buyers hold off.
Freights have been very dull, and rates are low and unset¬
tled: some grain has been taken on steamer’s account.
Provisions show activity and buoyancy in all hog pro¬
ducts. The annual statement of packing operations show a
falling oft* in the number of hogs slaughtered, which is
partially made good by an increase of average weights, but

improved Liverpool accounts, but closes to-day
quiet but firm, with very little business doing, there being no
European advices, as the foreign markets are closed to-day.
Exporters have been tbe principal purchasers during all the
week.
On Saturday there was no change in the quotations,
though the lower grades were obtained at a shade easier
prices; Monday the sales were smaller, but holders were
firmer and prices stronger, without being quotably higher;
Tuesday prices remained firm, although there was still less
doing ; but on Wednesday, under better advices from Europe,
our market became more active and prices advanced nearly
£ cent, and this advance was sustained yesterday, though
towards the close last night there was less disposition to
operate, the Liverpool accounts not being as favorable as at
the opening. To day, as stated above, there has been very
little business, but cotton is strongly held, holders expressing
and probably feeling as much confidence as at any period this
season.
Sales for forward delivery this week reach 1,950
bales, all Low Middling ; on Saturday 300 bales were sold,
of which 200 were for March, at 27fc, and 100 for April at
same
price; on Monday the sales were 800 bales, 700 for
March at 27|c, and 100 for May at 28c; on Tuesday 450
bales were sold, 250 for April at 27fo, and 200 for May at
28c; on Wednesday 200 bales for May at 28c; on Thursday
200 bales, 100 for April at 28^3, and 100 on private terms:
The total sales for immediate delivery this week foot up
18,024 bales (including 681 bales to arrive,) of which 3,950
bales weTe taken by spinners, 1,967 bales on speculation,
10,004 bales for export, and the following are the closing
quotations, the market closing steady:

week, and since

for shipping

week has assumed a steadier tone

The market the past

with a fair business*
Kentucky Leaf is held rather stronger at the West, but
this market shows no decided change, except that the views
of holders are more readily met by buyers.
The sales of the
week are 400 hhds., of which about 125 hhds. for home us^,
the balance for export; prices ranging from 7dc to 17c for
lugs to prime leaf.
Seed Leaf has been more active; the business, however,
continues to he restricted to the older growths, and the prices
for the most put are withheld. Tue progress of the struggle
in Cuba is closely scanned by parties who are interested in
Seed Leaf Tobacco, and the belief that the insurgents will
not be readily put down, tends to strengthen the views ol
holders. The sales for the week embrace 700 boxes Cornice
tieut, crop of 1866, private terms; 120 do do 22c; 24
cases Connecticut Cut, crop of 1867, 45c ; 7-3 cases State, crop

than usual.
Nothing of moment has been done for export
today, business was interrupted by the observance of Good
Friday, but prices ruled very firm.
Wheat has been doing a little better in,the past two or
three days; the week opened very fiat; but the better accounts
from Liverpool coming upon a light stock in store, and the
bulk of expected supplies from California being in, there was
a firmer feeling.
But we are considerably above the wants
of the Liverpool market, and shippers are unable to meet
the advanced views of holders, especially as an advance
is asked for ocean freights.
Receipts have falleu off at the
West and will probably be limited for so me weeks by the
occupation of the farmers with spring sowing. It is not im¬
probable that on the re-opening of lake navigation from
Chicago to Buffalo, we shall get increased quantities of wheat
forwarded by rail from the latter market. No. 2 Spring
closed yesterday at $1 43@B1 46, and to day advanced lo
$1 44@5>1 48, with white California firm, at 81 60@$l 0-5.
Corn has been in better demand, mainly for the home
trade, and partly for distilling, which is Rung returned in th »
quarter, with some export. Tue receipts lias been liberal,
and prices declined early in the week, but there has latterly
been a recovery of two cents per bush.
Oats have shown
some speculation, based
on the light available stock of the
