A novel enterprise has been started near Perth
Amboy, New Jersey. A company is making
tcrra-cotta lumber, which can be made to take
the place of timber in most of its uses. The
process is the invention of C. C. Oilman, of Iowa,
and the lumber is made by mixing n peculiar
kind of clay known as kaolinitc with saw-dust,
formin;; a sort of dough, which is cast into large
blocks and burned in kilns in a manner similar
to that of ordinary brick. The material so pro
duced is said to be completely fire proof, and can
be worked as easily as pine lumber. The roof
of the new Columbia College at Xcw York is to
be constructed of this material.

In answer to a circular from the Department
of State that Department has recently issued a
volume on the cotton and woolen mills of
Europe as gathered from reports made by United
States consuls. The reporLs treat the subject
very exhaustively, and cannot fail to be of in
terest to importers .and dealers of woolen goods
in this country.
To transport the vast amount of cotton now
received, tho Richmond and Danville Railroad
lias been running special cotton trains. Hun
dreds of bales are piled on flats, and tubs filled
with water are placed all through the cotton.
One watchman takes care of two fiats.

Tho business failures for the last seven days
reported in New York number 131, of which

The potato crop is said to be almost as much
of a failure this year in western New York
as it was last. New York produced last
year 25,000,000 bushels, and the rest of the
country S0,000,000 in all 115,000,000, or fully
20,000,000 less than the average for the past ten
years. If, as is reported, the New York crop
is only 22,000,000, or loss than last year, tho
high price of potatoes is likely to last for an
other twelvemonths, to the very serious loss of
tho community. In the last fiscal year over
$-1,500,000 worth of potatoes were imported,
against $374,019 in 3SS1, $274,220 in 18S0, and
$1,313,919 in 1379, another bad potato year. In
spite of cheap breadstuff's, a poor potato crop is
likely io continue this large import of an
article ef food.
The yield of corn cannot yet be accurately
estimated. Much of it is still standing in shock
in the fields. It ia believed, however, that
thcro will bo at least 1,630,000,000 bushels, or
an average yield of 25 bushels to tho acre,
against 23 in 1S79, and IS in 1S31. Of this total
the States north of Tennessee and wast of Vir
ginia and Pennsylvania produced 1,250,000,000 ;
the Southern States, 310,000,000; the Middle
States, S2,000,000, and New England over
7,000,000. The total product will bo more than
400,000,000 greater than last year.
The rice crop in Louisiana this year promises
to bo a big thing, in fact the bingest thing in
that line ever known in tho State. A promi
nent rice miller in New Orleans states that ho
is convinced that there will be ten per cent,
more rice than Inst year, when the yield was
600,000 barrels of rough rice, or 235,000 of clean.
If the weather proves favorable, 300,000 barrels
of clean rice aro confidently predicted. It
appears that the brewers and glucose factories
of New Orleans arcf making considerable use of
Indiana has this year a crop of 46,923,6 '.3
bushels wheat, 115,699,797 bushels corn, 19,
619,516 bushels oats, 33,595,436 pounds tobacco,
20,1S0,6S3 bushels apples, and 7,261,S30 bushels
potatoes. The State's loading crops aro esti
mated to be worth over $150,000,000.
More than one-half of all the barley produced
in the United States is raised in New York,
California, and Wisconsin. The average yield
is 23.5 bushels per acre, and the total product
will reach 45,000,000 bushels.
THE STOCK MARKET.
RerlcTT of tho Week in Wall Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
Nkw York, Nov. 1. The market has been
even duller to-day than yesterday, and the tone
at times unsettled and at times strong. It was
indeed without feature, and is in no way indica
tive of anything in the immediate future. Tho
borrowing demand for stock continues and busi
ness among the commission houses is almost at
a standstill. Money loaning up to 15 per cent. ;
closing bid, 12. Wants not supplied.
