Latest Reports from Leading
Writing of Pullman City, near Chicago, vrhcro
the shops of the Pullman Palace Car Company
are located, "Gath" says: "It is probably tho
only model city in the world, and has cost
$6,000,000, which already pays six per cent, on
every element of it. There are 3,500 acres of
land, costing $SO0,O00 ; the town proper is built
on 500 acres, all that by law could bo an ap
purtenance of a. manufacturing company. It is
in idea a car manufactory, surrounded by a city
for the operatives, and for an ideal mechanical
life, the whole to pay, to be free of disease, and
to exalt tho condition of men. At one end are
the great brick shops, turning out fifteen cars a
day, with a mighty tower of brick 200 feet
high to distribute the sewerage, whilo the heat,
etc, are dispensed by the great engine which
drove the machinery at the Centennial Exhi
bition. At the centre and other end arc tho
plaza and town, all of brick, with nearly 10,000
inhabitants, half a niilo from Lake Michigan ;
an artificial lake comes into the plaza, on which
sTe the arcade, hotel (called Florence for Mr.
Pullman's daughter), serpentine gothie church,
market house, railway station, aud Pullman
railroad to girt tho greater lake of Calumet,
which Mr. Pullman says will be the manufac
turing centre of the Western world, and. great
est Lake port.
At the directors' meeting of the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad, on the 13th inst., Mr. John
W.Garrett was elected to the presidency of the
road for the twenty-fifth time, tho lion. George
W. Dobbin casting the unanimous vote of the
board. Mr. Samuel Spencer, the present third
vice-president, was elected second, vice-president
Mr. Orlaud Smith was elected to the
third vice-presidency. Mr. Smith has had an
experience of thirty years of railway life. For
nine years of this period he was identified with
the management of the Marietta and Cincin
nati Railway Company as receiver and super
intendent. President Garrett announced to
the board that the Baltimore and Ohio tele
graph line between Baltimore and New York
was open, and that in a few days it will be in
full operation. He also stated that co-opera-tive
alliances had been inado with a number of
railways for telegraphic facilities and inter
changes of business. Ho had no doubt that
ultimately a system of co-operative railway
telegraph lines will be established throughout
the United States, which will prevent a mon
opoly for all time, aud furnish the public an
effective, reliable competing system.
W. H. Yanderbilt, Rufus Hatch, and Jay
Gould all testified before the New York Senate
Committee on corners last week. The Phila
delphia Timet sarcastically sums up the evidence
as follows: Yanderbilt never speculates and is
satisfied that grain corners aro very damaging
to the railroad interests. Hatch is firmly of
the opinion that corners aro very wrong
unless he is one of the corncrcrs. If he was one
of tho cornered he would denounce the business
with all his might. The philanthropic Gould
Tras of the opinion that speculation in grain
was a good thing for everybody, except the few
people who had to buy flour or bread, of course.
It was a little rough on them sometimes. He
was decidedly opposed to any legislation on the
subject, as he really feared it would do more
harm than good, which it probably would to
those who live by that kind of gambling. It is
astonishing how little these renowned gcntle
Mien scan to know about such things. They
only spoke from hearsay, not from personal
The amount of construction work on the
Northern Pacific Eailroad for the year 1832 is
stated by Vice-President Oakes, as follows:
Three hundred and twenty miles finished in
the Yellowstone Valley, twenty-five on the
Wisconsin division, and 125 up the valley of
the Clark's Fork of the Columbia in Idaho and
Montana, making in all 470 miles. In addition
there have been 200 miles graded. The gap
between the two ends of track in Montana is
now 2S0 miles, nearly all being in the old set
tled portion of the Territory between Bozeman
and Missoula, where tho gold mines attracted
s considerable population as early as 18(52. The
present end of track on the road building west
is at Livingston, a new town at the head of the
Vellowstone Valley. The total mileage of fin
ished main lino now operated by the company
is 1,546. So far advanced is the work on the
uncompleted section, that the oponing of the
entire line to tho Pacific coast is regarded as
certain to take place next summer.
It is said at Chicago that Yanderbilt has be
come the leading spirit in the scheme recently
considered at the joint session of the directors
of the Pittsburg and Lake Erie Railroad, and
ihc Pittsburg, Youghiogheny, and McKecsport
road, to carry out the proposition of the direc
tors of the Philadelphia and Heading road, and
construct a new south Pennsylvania line.
Twenty millions in bonds will be provided for
by the Yanderbilt interests, and the proposed
road will be parallel with the Pennsylvania
line from Pittsburg to Harrisburg, and will
make an additional through line from New
York to Chicago. This is an old idea worked
out on a new plan.
Tho December corn returns received by tho
Department of Agriculture indicate an aggre
gate yield of 1,025,000,000 bushels. In tho
Feven corn surplus States, from Ohio to Ne
braska and Kansas, which produced a record of
twelve hundred and one million bushels m tho
census year, there appears a reduction of about
two hundred and twenty-five million bushels,
more than one hundred of which is in Illinois,
ahd nearly one hundred in Iowa. The latest
estimates indicate an aggregate yield of wheat
of 500,000,000 bushels.
The finauce committee of tho great cotton
exposition to be held next year at Louisville,
Ky., appointed Dec. 11 as a general subscription
day, and prominent business men devoted their
requisite $200,000 has been fully subscribed and
enough additional subscriptions made to largely
increase that figure, and the fact that nearly
1,000 citizens gave subscriptions indicates tho
popular character of the enterprise. Its success
is now assured beyond all doubts.
Seventy-one miles of fourth track has been
completed on the New York division of the
Pennsylvania Railroad this year, and fifteen
miles more are in progress. An order has been
given to a New York company to finish fifty
engines as quickly as possible. Tho Altoona
shops are turning out locomotives at the rate of
209 per year. An order has been placed with a
foreign company to build 600 freight cars as
quickly as possible.
It is now believed that tho consolidation of
the Eastern and the Boston and Maine Rail
roads, through a lease of tho former to the lat
ter, is possible before very long. The election
of a board of directors of the Eastern favorable
to the project, and the strengthening of tho
position of the road by the election, as its pres
ident, of President Jackson, of the Maine Cen
tral Railroad, arc taken as strong indications of
the ultimate success of the long-contemplated
There were 230 failures in tho United States
reported to HradstrccCs Journal during the past
week 17 less than in tho preceding week, and
65 more than in the corresponding week last
year. The Middle States had 60, a decrease of
12; Eastern 17, a decrease of 27; Southern 61,
an increase of 6; Western 64, an increase of 5;
California and Territories 28, an increase of 11 ;
Canada 15, a decrease of 8.
The statistics of the cotton trade of St. Louis
for the year ended August 31, show that tho
gross receipts were 369,579 bales. Of this num
ber 129,060 bales were through shipments, leav
ing 240,519 bales sold in this market. Tho
fchipments for the same time were 361.249 bales.
of which 141,571 bales went direct to Europe,
and 219,705 bales were consumed by Eastern
xn order to prepare the schedules and interest
cfcs for the payment of the dividend duo
fir tno United States registered bonds issued
nndcr tho acts of July 14, 1SS0, and January
20, 1871, the Secretary of the Treasury gives
notice that tho oxchange of 31 per cents, into
3 per ccnte. will bo suspended from December
30, 1SS2, to February 1, 1SS3.
There are now organized and doing business
in this country and Canada 415 street railways.
These companies employ about 35,000 men, and
run 1S,000 cars. More than 100,000 horses ar$
in daily use, to feed which it requires annually
150,000 tons of hay and 11,000,000 bushels of
grain. These companies own and operate over
3,000 miles of track. Tho whole number of
passengers carriedannually is over 1,212,400,000.
The amount of capital invested in these rail
ways exceeds .$150,000,000.
Several bills have been introduced in the
South Carolina Legislature for tho purposo of
establishing a raihoad commission. Most of
tho bills aro modelled upon tho Railway Com
mission law of Georgia, which is said by news
papers of that State to be satisfactory to railway
shippers and passengers.
The National Petroleum Exchange was for
mally organized at a meeting of the subscribers
at New York, on the. 14th inst. The new Ex
change, which is limited to 500 members, has
its membership filled, and over 100 applicants
aro now registered awaiting admission.
Tho new building of the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad at Baltimore was on Monday perma
nently occupied by President Garrett. First
Vice-President Garrett, and their staffs, and
the ticket and telegraph departments.
Tho construction of a railroad from the Mex
ican line, through Lower California and So
nora, to Calabazas, in Arizona, has been com
menced. A largo number of St. Louis merchants havo
organized a freight bureau.

Special to Tho National Tribune.
New York, Dec. 20. Wo have an exceed
ingly dull market to note to-day, most of the
bankers being more occupied with skylarking
than speculating. Heretofore business has
been limited to tho room traders. To-day
there was no business to bo limited, and quota
tions arc devoid of significance, except in so
much, perhaps, as they represent the effort of
the big operators to sustain prices. Of outside
business there is more, and of insido business
there is very little, and, barring accidents, wo
scarcely look for auy revival till after the holi
days. Tho big fish continue to control the
situation, and aro likely to do so until tho sit
uation controls them. Money five to six per
