BBEADSTUFFS. -The Chicago Tri?
bune says that the present inflated
prices of wheat are but temporary,"
and intimates that they aro mainly
due to a "corner" established by
speculators, on exaggerated state?
ments of the scarcity of breadstuff's.
The Tribune says:
lu less than six weeks the harvest
of wheat will bo gathered in the
Southern half of the wheat-growing
bolt of tho country, and that harvest
promises to be au abundant one. A
few weeks later will follow the harvest
up to the Northern line, and that,
too, promises to bo a most liberal
yield. Under these circumstances
overy ono must perceive that tho
present high prices rest upon an ex?
ceedingly flimsy foundation. Tho
"corner" upon broadstuffs has beon
successfully maintained much longer
than tho hpeoulators expected; but
its timo is nearly spent. Millors buy
no wheat at present prices, and sales
of flour aro confined to retail dealers,
to supply the immediato wants of
their customers. Yesterday there
were 110,000 bushels of wheat and
67,000 barrels of flour in store in
Chicago. Tho doily receipts aro
fully equal to tho demand for local
consumption, aud there is no other
demand now, and will be noue until
tho new crop comes in.
This is a cheerful view of the mat?
ter, which we hopo will be soon veri?
fied by tho market quotations.
Is SLAVERY ABOLISHED?-Isa ques?
tion that has been raised in the Mary?
land Constitutional Convention, now

opinion of Charles O'Conor, of Now
York, to tho effect that slavery has
never been lawfully abolished in that
State, and that the amondmeut to
that effect has no place in tho Consti?
tution. This opinion was promul?
gated in tho Convention to sustain au
argument in favor of allowing slave?
holders to claim compensation for
QUESTION.-Tho Louisville Journal
says: Some of the radicals ask,
"Would you permit a rebel to talk
defiantly and insultingly of the Go?
vernment?" Certainly wo would, if
tho said rebel should have tho least
anxiety to do so. God does not blast
those who talk defiantly und insult?
ingly of Him; and has the Govern?
ment any reason or right to consider
defiance and insult to itself as worse
than defiance and insult to the Al?
