Latest Reports from. Leading
Telegraphic advices to Jlradslcct's last -week
reveal a continued healthful condition of gen
eral trade. The weather in the cotton region
has lwcn favorable, except in Texas and Arkan
sas, where injurious rains have prevailed. The
market for wheat has been firmer and advanced
socio, as a result of the belief that prices are low
ruough to make it a safe investment for money.
( urn is higher, because the supply of old grain
is being rapidly exhausted, and the markets,
both in New York and Chieaso, are cornered.
Flocks of provisions and lard have been reduced
to a lower point than at any time for several
years, and arc controllcc1 by two or three prom
inent speculators. Oats are higher on account
of the diminishing visible supply and the in
creasing consumptive demand. The market for
manufactured iron in general is weaker than
when last reported. The regular quotations
account for a large proportion of the new busi
jirs done, except at :i few western cities. Dull
ness affects many mills and furnaces. Even pig
iron threatens to drop back a point. Petroleum
certificates have reacted 2 cents during the
week, and exporters refuse to buy refined oil,
even at further concessions. The movement of
anthracite is fairly active, but October rates arc
not generally obtained. Ocean freight rates are
firm, but cotton is about the only freight offer
ing itself for shipment in any quantity.
The Montana Herald gives publicity to a yarn
told by James Carroll, of Helena, of a remark
able discovery in a gorge in the Yellowstone
Park. He suddenly discovered, while Availing
for the approach of some companions, that the
atmosphere around him was a non-conductor of
sound. He attempted to hail his companions,
but not a sound could he utter, and he dis
charged his gun at a panther, but there was no
report, though the animal was wounded, and
left bloody traces behind him. nis companions
met him and were equally frightened as him
self. After riding a quarter of a mile they got
out of the charmed air before they knew it, and
one of the crowd nearly burst the tympanum of
Carroll's ear by shouting at him at the top of
The Government has received dispatches
from our Minister at Berne, Switzerland, re
porting the almost total failure of the potato
crop in Switzerland. Potatoes forming one of
the principal articles of diet of the Swiss, Mr.
Cramer assumes that a large import must neces
sarily take place, and he assumes that Ameri
can exporters of breadstuffs should make ar
rangements to supply the deficit caused by the
"United States stamped envelopes will be sold
to the public after January 1, 1SS3, at a reduc
tion of ten per cent, on the present price. The
Post Office Department has also arranged to
print special return request notices upon envel
opes without additional charge when ordered in
quantities of live hundred or more.
The failures for last week reported to Xew
York number 117, of which 110 were in the
country, and 7 in Xew York.
Officers of the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany claim that the main line of their railroad
can do as much business with two tracks as the
Xew York Central docs with four. They state
that it is done by a sj'stern of long sidings.
These sidings are five miles apart, and slow
freights take to them to make way for fiister
trains. When accommodation trains arc run
ning at intervals of a few minutes a fourth
track is a necessity, and the road is well pre
pared for such exigencies.
The stockholders of the Boston and Xew York
Air Line Eailroad have ratified the lease of the
road to the New York, Xew Haven and Hart
ford Eailroad Company for ninety-nine years,
at four per cent, to the holdr-rs of preferred
stock. Edward L. Gates and Herbert B. Gates,
of New Jersey, and Charlotte C. Dcakin, of Col
chester, Conn., have brought suit, asking for an
accounting, and for the appointment of a re
ceiver for the Air Line Itoad.
A meeting of general passenger agents of
Southwestern roads was held in Chicago re
cently, and a schedule was agreed upon, which
is an advance on the rates heretofore prevailing:
Between Chicago and Kansas City, Leaven
worth, and St. Joseph, $11.80; between Chicago
and St. Louis, $!5.70; between St. Louis and
Kansas City, $3.50. The Missouri Pacific will
fix the rate between St. Louis, and Atchison,
TojK-ka, and St. Joseph.
The report of Ii. A. Elmer, Second Assistant
Postmaster-General, for the year ended June 30,
38.2, shows that the cost of railroad mail trans
portation was $10,373,515, against $9,71)3,155 for
the previous year. The increase in mileage
was,991 miles, or S.J) per cent. This is the
greatest increase in length of railroad routes
ever made in any one year, and is greater than
the entire railroad mileage in 1831.
The Bock Island road announces the comple
tion of a traffic arrangement with the St. Paul
and Omaha line, by which it will bill freight
through from Chicago to Sioux City This
soems to indicato that the Bock Island road has
secured a controlling influence in the St. Paul
and Omaha, over whose track the Northwestern
road gains admission to St. Paul.
Win. M. Wallace brought suit against the
Providence and Stonington Steamship Com
pany at Boston to recover damages for personal
injuries inflicted ill the collision between the
steamers Xarragansctt and Stonington June,
IfiSO. The company made defense under the
limited liability act, to which Wallace demurred.
The United States Circuit Court h:is overruled
The application on behalf of the Baltimore
and Ohio Bailroad Company to lay tracks
through Wilmington, Del., for its Philadelphia
line was made in the name of the Delaware
Western Bailroad Company to City Council has
Eeccnt efforts to place rail contracts abroad
have failed, and resulted in the placing of nearly
a quarter million tons in American mills dur
ing the past few days. The price has declined
to about $43, which is below the price at which
iron rails cm be made. The American iron
rails mills will soon be out of work, and will be
under the necessity of adapting themselves to
the now improved conditions which have grown
up ab'Mit i: within a few years.

the principal parks lighted with towers.
A large manufactory for making compressed
paper wheels with steel tires, for railroad pur
poses, will shortly be started in Philadelphia.
Prominent railroad men comprise the company,
The October cotton returns to the Department
of Agriculture indicate unusual size and vigor
of the plant, and capacity for large production.
The late development of the fruitage, and indi
cations of a small top crop, limit the otherwise
extraordinary product. The general average is
eighty-eight per cent, higher than any October
for ten years, excepting 1S75 and 1S73. The
October returns of the yield per acre of wheat,
estimated from the results of the thrashing, fore
shadows a product slightly exceeding 500.000,
000 bushels, possibly Teaching 520,000,000 bush
els. The average yield per acre appears to be
nearly fourteen bushels on an acreage slightly
less than 37,000,000 acres. There is a reduc

yield in the great winter wheat belt of tho

valuable premium, three tons of guano. An

THE STOCK MARKET.
Review of the Week fn Wall Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
Xew Yokk, Oct. 25. The main feature of
to-day's market was dullness, tho only excep
tion being a marked decline in Denver, which
is attributed to short sales and to the liquida
tion of a Bull pool. Tho public seem hopelessly
apathetic about the market, and very strong
forces are at work to produce a depressed state
of a Hairs until after the election.
The earnings of the railroads and the general
business of the country seem for tho moment to
be lost sight of altogether, and even tho "short
interest" would seem to have been largely
closed. Indeed, there is every indication of a
very quiet state of affairs for the next fortnight.
