Rrad&lrceVs gives a statistical summary of
tho mercantile failures in the United States and
Canada for 1S52. In the United 'States there
were 7,571 failures, of which 1.193 occurred in
2sTew England, 1,732 in the Middle States, 1,532
in the Southern States, 2,3J0 in the Western
States. G39 in the Pacific States, avid US in tho
Territories. The total of failures in the United
States last year was 5,929. In IS 50 it was 4,350,
and in 1S79 it was 6.G52. In Canada in 1SS2
l3i ere were G12 failures, and there were 2,075
inlS79. The percentage of assets to liabilities,
based in part upon actual returns and upon
well-advied estimates, is greater than for
18S1. This may be regarded as cvidenco that
the unsoundness of trade is not so great as
lias been feared. The total actual assets in
1862 are reported at $47,2G7.,000, nearly $11,
500,000 in excess of 1831, nearly $20,000,000
in excess of 1660, and about $ J, 700,000 less than
in lfeTi). The liabilities in lf.'d2 aggregate $93,
607,000, $7,500,000 in excess of 1SS1, about $3G,
400,000 more than in 1SS0, and about $0,000,000
less than in 1S79.
The number of immigrants lauded at Castle
Garden, New York, during the past year, is
about three per centum larger than it has been
since 1S79. The steamship companies have
added vessels to their fleets, and the consequent
facilities for carrying have increased tho uum
Iwr of arrivals. Tho total number of steerage
passengers arrived in this port during the past
year with the avowed indention of becoming
colonists and settlers is. 470,291. Of these
Europe sent about 464.CO0, Asia 500, ' Africa
about 200, and South America nearly 1,500.
Other portions of the worild contributed about
4,091. The greater portion of the European
immigrants were Germans, reaching almost
five-eighths of the entire number.
On the ground that tl ie recent elections in
Tennessee were, in effect b an expression of tho
opinion on the part of tl ie people that another
settlement more favorab Ie to them as taxpayers
should be made by their creditors. Treasurer
Polk Tefused to pajT tho interest tailing due on
the funded bonds of tho State on January 1,
38S3. He will leave th e decision of the matter
to tho Legislature, which assembles in a short
time. There have been from $13,000,000 to
$15,000,000 of bonds issued under the act ap
proved May 20, 1882. This act provided for a
settlement at GO cents on the dollar, with in
terest of 3 per cent, pur annum for two years,
4 per cent, for two years, 5 per cent, for two
years, and G per cent, for twenty-four years.
The total immigration to the United States
for 1882, at all portr;, was about 735,000. This
estimate i6 based on custom-house official re
turns for all moutks excepting December, the
arrivals m which ionth are placed at 30,000.
The total immigration at all ports for 1881 was
a little over 719,D0O, showing an increase of
about IG.000 in toe past year. The countries
from which the immigrants came and the num
ber contributed by each were as follows: Ger
many, 232,000; England and Wales, 81,000;
Ireland, 70,000; Scotland, 17.000; Sweden,
59,000; Norway, 27,000; Canada. 89,000; all'
other countrici, 100,000. The arrivals in the
last three moiaths show a decided falling off",
those of December showing a decline of about
20 per cent.
A cbarierhnsbeen granted at the Pennsylvania
Stato Department to the Clearfield Bituminous
Coal Company. The capital stock is placed at
$5,000,000. Among the incorporators are Wil
liam II. Yanderbilt, Cornelius Yanderbilt,
William A, Wallace, S. I. Peale. James Tilling
hast, George J. Magoe, C. J. Langdon, John
3.ang, J. V. D. See, William D. Kelly (Elmira),
John G. Heading, Joseph M. Gazzan, and
Bishop I Wallace. The object of the new cor
jmration is to mine and sell coal, iron ore, fire
clay and other minerals, and to manufacture
and sell-coke made from bituminous coal. The
princijnl office will be at Clcaricd, and tho
busmen; will be transacted in Clearfield and
A Seranton dispatch states that last year's
workitt tho anthracite coal mines of Pennsyl
vania will be the largest on record. With the
out-put for the present week the shipments
will aggregate 29,500.000 tons, or nearly 1,000,
000 ions more than the product for JbSl. Were
it not for the interruption caused by tho
drought in the Schuylkill region the total out
put would exceed 30,000 000 tons, which is
more than tho most enthusiastic operator
tlrought nineteen years ago it would ever
, reach in any one year. Tho season has been
one of great prosperity in the coal regions.
A movement among Texas stock men to dis
arm their cowboys w:is derided at first, but is
now said to be making considerable headway.
Several stock men announced tliat they would
not employ anybody who carried a deadly
weapon. It was predicted that they would soon be
oompelled to rescind this order, but the Stock
JoirMi says that they find no difficulty in get
ting an&keeping employees, and that, as soon
as tho plan is put on trial on adjoining ranches,
tho cowboys will become its strongest advo
cates. Tho advance sheets of the commissioners of
savings lmnks of Munich iibelts show $10,000
000 increase in deposits and over $8,000,000 in
loans on personal hecurities. Ileal estate mort
gages bhow an increase of over $3,000,000. The
daaroaKe in investments in public funds is over
$3,000,000. The greatest amount of loans are
placed at about 5 per cent., the next largest .at
G per cent. Tho average dividends are 4 per
cent., against 3 97-100 last year. Out of 1GG
banks, 127 pay 4 per cent. Only 3 banks fail
Ostrich farming has a great future In Califor
nia unless the San Francisco Chronicle Is mis
taken. The twenty-two ostriches shipped from
Africa, upon which tho egg-laying and feather
growing capacity of tho indushy must depend
at first, arrived in good condition at the farm
in Fresno county. Tho climate differs there
very little from the region from which the
birds came, and has such vegetation as they
A party of Buffalo capitalists, including
Messrs. JewetbM. Richmond, IS. O. Eumsey, M.
11. Bush, Franklin D. Locke and others, have
purchased 150300 acres of land in Southern
Missouri from the St. Louis and San Francisco
Railroad Company. The property is situated
iu Laclede and Butler counties, about 175 miles
southwest of St. Louis.
Tho Railway Ago publishes a table showing
that the number of miles of main track laid
during the year 1882 was 10,821, on 31G lines
in 44 States and Territories. Full returns will
probably mako tho grand total 11,000 miles,
which is 1,500 more miles than was constructed
in 1SS1 the banner railroad building year up
to that time.
It is understood that about 1,400 miles of tele
graph Hues, chiefly in Western and Northern
Michigan, passed into tho possession of tho
Western Union Company on January 1, under
a contract by which that company has there
after tho Ica'so of the lines with tho option of
purchase. Tho lines wero built and owned by
the Michigan Telegraph Company.
Figures of pork-packing in" tho entire West
show that the aggregate of the entire winter's
packing, from November to date, has been
3,335.000, against 3,010,000 in tho same period
last vear. The export product now aggregates
101,000.000. against 132,000,000 for tho corre
sponding time last year.
Tho pig-iron manufacturers of tho United
States have decided to form a national protect
ive association, and a committee has been
appointed to draft a constitution and report at
a meeting to bo held at Pittsburg on the Uth
Tho building statistics of St. Paul for 1882
show that 301 business structures with a front
ago of 10.21G icct have been erected at a
cost of $3,5b0,000, and 2.17S residences costing
Bradsfrect's Journal reports 212 failures in
the United States the past week, an increase of
6 over the previous week, and 81 more than in
tho corresponding week last year.
The aggregate cost of new buildings orected
in New York during 18S2 was $14,778,63G.
THE STOCK MARKET.
RerieTr or the Week in lVall Street unil Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
New York, Jan. '. The sellers of yesterday
are the buyers of to-day. The bears who started
early have left early, and Mr. Gould has as
sisted them. Of outside business there is none,
and the only visible buUs so far are those who
want to sell stocks. The situation is as yet
wholly unaltered. The play goes on, but there
is no audience, scarcely an orchestra to attend
it. As commission brokers we hope for a full
house, but as prudent individuals wo should,
in such a case, prefor seats near tho door.
Money easier, ruling frou 5 to 6 per cent.
