Latest Reports from Leading
The November corn report of the Department
of Agriculture is of similar tenor with tho re
turns of previous months. Tho planting was
late and replanting more general than for sev
eral years. The prospect up to Jnly 1st was
discouraging, causing a sharp rise in values of
grains and meats. Since that date the season
Jias been steadily favorable to growth and
ripening, and deferred frosts have- made tho
growing period of fully average length. Con
dition July 1st, average S5 ; it was S3 in Au
gust, the same in September and SI in October.
Lasfr year condition fell from 90 in July to GG
in October, presaging a loss of over -150,000,000
busficls, which was fully realized. The Depart
ment has three tests of quantity produced,
viz: Comparative condition in October; yield
per acre returned in Xovembtr, and in Decem
ber; total product as compared with total of
previous year. In October the highest indication
of aggregate was 1,030,000,000 bushels, and it
was stated that "later returns of product may
slightly reduce but cannot materially increase
The present returns of yield malce a general
average close to 2T bushels per acre, which is
under medium yield, confirming the prediction
of September 1st that the heavy production of
1S7J) and ISSfl cannot be approached under tho
most favorable circumstances, which was 23.10
bushels, while the average yields of ten years
to 1850 was nearly 27 bushels.
The Xovembi r returns of yield per acre, on
an average between sixty-five and sixty-six
million, make an aggregate of 1,050,000,000
bushels. Its distribution in round numbers is,
2ew Englond, S,000,000 bushels; New York,
21,000,000; New Jersey, 10,000,000; Pennsyl
vania, 41,000,000; Delaware, -1,000,000; Mary
land. 17,000,000; Virginia, 35.000,000; North
Carolina, 35,000,000; South Carolina, 10,000,000;
Georgia, 32,000,000; Florida, 4,000,000; Ala
bama, 29,000,000; Mississippi, 25,000,000; Lou
isiana, 12,000,000; Texas, 74.000,000; Arkan
sas, 35,000,000 ; Tennessee, 09,000,000 ; "West
Virginia, 13.000,000; Kentucky, 75,000.000;
Ohio, S2,000,000; Michigan, 30,000,000; Indi
ana, 99,000,000; Illinois, 209,000,000; "Wiscon

ISG.000,000; Missouri, IS 1,000,000 ; Kansas,
151,000,000; Nebraska, SI ,000,000.
The quality of the crop is superior through
out the South. It falls below the 100 in only
eighteen States and Territories, only one point
below in Michigan, two in Ohio, three in Ne
vada, five in Indiana, Vermont, and Utah, six
in New Jersey, eight in Colorado, nine in New
York, ten in Ehodo Island and New Mexico,
fifteen in New Hampshire and Iowa, sixteen in
Dakota, eighteen in Minnesota, and twenty
two in Wisconsin. It is not probable that tho
crop' will exceed the above figures.
The Department of Agriculture reports ex
ceptionably lino weather during tho present
month for maturing and harvesting cotton, and
returns the estimated yield of tho acreage of
each State as follows: Virginia, pounds of lint
per acre, 173; North Carolina, ISO pounds;
South Carolina, 1S3; Georgia, 152; Florida,
117; Alabama, 150; Mississippi, 190 ; Lousiana,
235; Texas, 240; Arkansas, 233; Tennessee,
Tho dispatches to BradslrccVs last week from
the leading trade centres of the country reveal
a quiet state of general trade. The sales of dry
goods have been disappointing, owing to the
prolonged warm weather. Reports from tho
cotton regions of the South arc still favorable.
Tho foreign markets for breadstuffs are rela
tively firmer than the home markets, and on
this side of the Atlantic the seaboard markets
are relatively much firmer for both wheat and
corn than those of tho West. The iron market
continues to exhibit tho features of weakness
heretofore reported. Iron trade journals attrib
ute this state of affairs in part to over-production,
which appears strange after the prolonged
strike of last summer. The pronounced weak
ness of steel rails is noticeable. The anthracite
and bituminous coal markets are fairly prosper
ous. Cotton is suffering from lack of rail trans
portation facilities and high coast freights. Tho
price of certificates of crude petroleum has
fluctuated widely. On Monday the largest sales
in the history of the trade were recorded, and
values went to $1.30, but since then they have
declined to $1.13$, and have advanced again to
$1.31. The variation between bull and bear
estimates of daily production is respectively
from GG.000 to 77,000 barrels, with tho daily
consumption at 05,000 or 07,000 barrels every
21 hours. Eefincd oil has advanced about 1
cent per gallon. The prospect is for a higher
market, in the absence of new flowing wells
and excessive carrying rates. Grain and petro
leum shipments have increased. Tho consumi
tion demand for wool has continued to be of a
very conservative character, and, while there
has been no appreciable change in prices, tho
market lias favored buyers.
The number of business failures reported to
II. G. Dun & Co., of the Mercantile Agency, last
week,-numbered 141, of which 132 occurred in
the country and 9 in New York City. This is
a considerable increase on the previous weeks
and failures arc of more consequenco than
The Jlailicoy Aqc states that railway construc
tion during the month of October in tho United
States aggregated 1,008 miles of main track on
seventy-one different lines in thirty States,
making a total for ten months of the present
year of 9,143 miles, on 293 lines, in forty-threo
States and Territories, and estimates the con
struction for the year at between 11,000 and
12,000 miles, which far exceeds the construc
tion in any previous year. Dakota leads in
construction during the past month with 131
miles ; Texas is next with CO.
The statement of the Eastern Railroad Com
pany for the year ending Sept. 30th shows tho
gross earnings to have been $3,403,077, an in
crease of$30S,853 over 1SS1 ; the operating ex
penses were $2,292,907, an increase of $343,291 ;
the net earnings were $1,110,109, a decrease of
$14,491 ; the surplus for the year is $217,310, an
increase of $21,370. Tho total number of pas
sengers carried was 0,004,037, an increase of
803,937. The total freight carried was 1,257,
G99 tons, an increase of 133,038 tons.
The Illinois Central and Michigan Central
Railroads arc to build a $000,000 depot in Chi
cago. It will 'no 107x745 feet, built of pressed
brick, and ready for occupancy next fall. If
Vanderbilt has absorbed the Nickel-Plate this
will also bo its depot. This, in connection with
the new depot in Harrison street to be erected
by Gould lines, and tho elegant one already in
use, will make Chicago the depot city.
The Manhattan Elevated Railroad Company
had its regular annual election in New York,
November 9th. The following directors were
elected: Jay Gould, Cyrus W. Field, Russell
Sage, R. M. Gallaway, Edward M. Field, Geo.
J. Gould, Sidney Dillon, Samuel Sloan, Joso F.

THE STOCK MARKET.
KcTlew of the Week In Wall Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune
New York, Nov. 15. Tho general tono of
to-day's market has been one of weakness, and
the reasons assigned therefor havo been the
impending trouble in tho Trnnk Lino pool. The
market is extremely sensitive to rumors of all
kinds, and tho volume of transactions is only
moderate and limited at that to profes
sional speculators. Of outside trading there
is little or none. Appearances would in
dicate that the large bulls who inaugu
rated tho advance of tho last week havo
marketed a heavy loan of stocks, but with
such forces working on tho market it is
utterly impossible to give a truo idea of tho
immediate future, especially when it is so diffi
cult to divine motives for manipulations. As
an instanco of this we cite L. and N., for the
steadiness of which there is no reason what
ever, except tho existence of a small pool.
Where this syndicate will run, or how far they
will go, no one can tell. The borrowing demand
for stocks shows no increase, and everything,
except Lake Shore, loans up to the full rate for
money. Money 5 G per cent.
