very unsettled condition, owing to
differences between the two lctiueries.
On the Cth Inst., the American Refinery
reduced Its prices cts for all whites

writing their prices are quoted at i cts
below tho California Refinery.
' Eastern- Maukht. The improve
ment noted in our last report has con
tinued and we consider the market
strong and the situation favorable for
still further advance's.
FoituiGN MAiiKinu mo strong and

Wo quote from New York Exchanges
of May 7th, as follows:
PniCES. Refiners being well sup
plipd, there has been an absence of de
mand during tbc -week aud the market
is comparatively unaffected thus far by
the strong and excited advices from
Europe. Refined sugar has, however,
had an Increased foreign demand, and
has advanced in consequence, and is
quito unsettled at tho close. No largo
purchases of raws could be made with
out further advancing prices.
Cost ani Fnnimrr. Offerings and
sales have been small, buyers and sellers
remaining apart, but indications point
to Increased business.
IJebt Cnoi'. Latent cable advices in
dicate that sowing is ended, with result
of varying estimates, of from ten to
twenty percent under last year for en
tire crop. Tills belief, together with
the fact that the German Reichstag has
extended the timo for payment of unties
for tluce months, has caused an excited
state of all tho foreign markets and
juices arc rapidly advancing.

NEARLY BURNED DOWN.
Shortly after half-past six o'clock
last evening, while Mr. W. E. Her
rick was sitting reading in his house,
Punchbowl street, his little boy ran
and called out fire. Mr. Herrick
jumped up like lightning, thinking
there was a firo in town, ho being
Captain of the Fire Police. As soon
as ho had got outside of the door ho
noticed that one of the rooms in the
two story house mnuka of his own,
was all in a blaze and the flames
were coming out of the windows.
Tho natives who occupied the house
wanted to ring an alarm, but he told
them not to. Mr. Herrick picked
up a blanket and tried to enter tho
burning room, but was driven back
three times by the furious flames.
At last he was rewarded for his
bravery by getting part control of
one end of the room, and some of
tho natives coming along with more
blankets it was not long before the
flames were put out. The bed, cur
tains, and wall paper of the room
had all caught fire, aud another
raiuute's delay the whole place would
have been burned down to tho
ground. Tho origin of tho fire is
credited to a young native boy who
entered the room for tho purpose of
stealing cigarettes, aud, 1 lighting
one, it is supposed set the curtain on
fire, then gcttinc: scared ran off. Ho
was seen to leave tho building about
the time the fire broke out. Mr.
Herrick is entitled to the greatest
credit for his plucky and determined
effort in saving tho building from
destruction. He is the kind of fire
man to have in a department.
