WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 16.
The Coffee Market Panic?At the
first call at the New York coffee exchange
yesterday morning an excited crowd of
brokers gathered about the hoard. The
heavy buyers of the previous dsy did not
noticeably appear to the front. The market
was feverish and uncertain. The sales re
coided at the iirst call, however, showed an
advance on an average of 1 cent, or 100
points. Fluctuations were great, and a wide
ranee of prices appeared for the same
month's delivery. Outside the rail was a
dense crowd of clerks and small speculators
who had comt to see the ruins and reilect
on the lost means of a summer vacation.
Inside the rail was excitement. Cables from
Havre showing a raise of so points steadied
the market and infused a temporary life in?
to the crowd. Later a cable from Rotter?
dam saying that sellers were reluctant to
sell at present prices was received with
cheers and cries of "good enough.1' The
local sales on the first call were -10,000 bags.
a great deal of excitement was manifested
among the brokers and speculators as to the
prospects of a settlement of Arnold ?s: Co.,
and Mac-key ec Small, the two firms who
weut to the ground in Monday's panic. The
streets were full of rumors of trouble among
banks at Chicago and Cincinnati, but tele?
grams from those places denied them.
Wo accideotly overheard the following J
dialogue on the street yesterday.
Jone?. Smith, why don't you stop that dis?
gusting hawking and spitting.
Smith. How can I? You know I am a
martyr to catarrh.
Do as I did. I had the disease in its
worst form but I am well now.
S. What did you do for it?
/'. 1 used Dr. Sage's Catarrh Kemedy. It
cured me und it will cure you.
?S'. I've heard of it, and by Jove I'll try it.
J. Do so. You'll lind it at all the drug
stores in town.

The GAZETTE is now tho oldest paper n
the Stale, and with few exceptions the old
eat in the country, and its usefulness hat
been demonstrated and appreciated during
the kiohtv-seven YEARS ofitsexistence, In
its columns has always been found h mirroi
of passing events, und tho careful ohronl
Cling of the history ol what is going OU in tbe
world has ever been its aim. It is always
welcomed in ihn household, while in the
counting room and workshop it has become
invaluable.
The Gazette has hotter facilities on uh
taining news than any paper outside of tin;
national capital. Situated an it is bo close
to the great centre of news, it en joys tlallj
the benefit of the Associated Press dir
patched from every part of the world ; banco
its patrons can read from its columns in the
evening what lias transpired that day in
every portion of our own domain as well h.t
from every part of the habitable globe.
Consequently it is an every day occurrence
for the GAZETTE to publish telegrams from
the various European capitals twelve am:
fifteen hours earlier than the morning pn
pers.
Another feature that serves to make th<
Gazette a great desideratum with hut
chants is its afternoon market report
New York, Baltimore, Chicago and oihei
centres.
The local department furnishes a full aud
somplete history of everything that occurs
a and near the city, and this feature will,
is ever, receive careful attention.
Correspondence from Washington, Itteh
nond and every section of IheState, is pub
ished regularly, and ?II events of interest
>ccurriug within the bounds of the Coin
nonwealth are to he found in the columns
>f the Gazette.
The Gazette's circulation is BteadiJy io
ireasing, especially among people who con
ult its advertising columns before purchas
ner. That this is self-evident may be io far?
ed from tho fact that a largo country ed ?
ion?nearly as large as the daily?is -ent
.11 over this section ot country three times
, week, and i9 read by thousands, most of
rhoin send here or to contiguous cities to
aako purchases. The advantages of ad
ertiaing in the gazette are, therefore, sp?
aren t.
