' The condition of the market underwent a sudden
i change soon after the close of oar bist report,
! caused by heavy purchases In Wilmington for ex?
port, followed by indication s of k <v water In the

causing an advance during thc week of 3c, which

fact of the stock being circulated In few hands,

steady, with a fair Inquiry and limited supply.
Sales 5738 at ae*c Monday, the market was

market was unsettled and irregular on toe lost
Liverpool new* Salea 2163 at 26*& Sales 8000.
Yesterday, the market wo? unsettled. Sales
amounted to 3841 at 26*6 fer middling, and 25*c
for low middling.
During the week our market has been Irregu?
lar, opening at 26Mc, advancing to 26MC and
closing at 26*c Liverpool ls Md lower ia up?
lands and Md on Orleans. The arrivals in Liver?
pool were heavy and amounted to 71,000 bales,
mostly Suntu. As the stock of these kinds la
now about 76 per cent of the whole stock, the
demand is running principally on them, espe?
cially, as now there ts ? difference of 3d per lb
between them and American. The stock of long
?le sorts is lees than at corresponding date
year, and we expect the trade and export?
ers will take such a percentage of East India, as
to cause the stock to diminish more rapidly than
ba 0868. Last year the stock ran down from
345,000 bales, the maximum, on 20th October, to
47,000 bales, on 1st April. The cotton, at sea ls
reduced 44,000 bales this week, and tbe weekly
sales amounted to 92,000 balea,. against 71,000
bales reported dally.
The weather at the South hat been nnanally
fine for tho past six weeks, and the picking ls
progressing favorably. Planters are sending for?
ward their crops rapidly, and the large receipts
c**se a general belief La a crop or 2,760,000. The re?
ceipts at Savanvah and Charleston are 63,604 balea
more than Last year, and nearly double the
amount received up to this time In 1867. Notwith?
standing this, we do not expect more than 16 or
.20 per cent, increase In Georgia, and no Increase
In SOuth Carolina. We do not believe we shall see
ah increase or 500,000 bales at this port, which
would be necessary to make the crops up to the
