the latter was pretty badly used u.
Yesterday morning Mr. Hill called at the

that some boys had driven the horse

him. Mr. Thlelecko got Into his wagon
ami started to drive on wuen some one
of thu boys called him an "old Dutch'
man." At this the old gentleman lie
came enraged, and, lumping out ol the
wagon, caught Mr. Hill's boy and gave
him several strokes with his whip.
Learning of the allalr, Mr. Hill got out a
warrant for Mr. Tlilelecku nml he was
arrested. The ease was tiled before

the exception that to-day there has been
a still breee. Business Is ery quiet In
In all ol Its departments, but hopes are
entcitnlned by our merchants that there
will soon be a change for the better.
Flour rules quiet and dull, there still
being n lot of nnsouud in the market.
Choice Timothy hay is not plentiful, aud
will sell readily at $lsj. There is very
little doing In corn, and about thu only
demand there Is, Is at thu mills. There
Is a pretty good demand lor oats, though
the supply Is about equal to tho demand.
Meal Is very dull. Bran Is quiet and
dull. Butter is plenty, and goes oil
slow, but thero is souiu demand for
strictly choice Northern roll or packed at
2(Vo)27c. Eggs are plenty aud dull, and
sell very slow. There is a good demand
for strictly choice apples, white medium
qualities havu but little call. Poultry Is
plenty ; there Is but a small demand for
both lire and dressed chickens; dressed
turkeys are plenty aud lower. Dressed
meats of all kinds are plenty. Rates to
New Orleans and way points nre uu
HBrOiir Ir'.ends should bear In mind
that the prices tie re given arc usually for
sales from first hands In touud lots, hi
tilling orders nud for broken lots it is nee-
esury to charge iui advauce over these
There has been but little done, and the
market iu this staple Is very dull, there
still being mi abundance of unsound on

reported were 200 barrels on orders, $5

reported being 2 cars mixed at $12; 2
cars choice, $18. Ch oice Timothy is
scarce and will find ready sale nt $1$ per
This branch ol trade has also been
slack. There Is but little demand, ex
cept for milling purposes. Sales were 2
cars white In bulk -HJc; 1 car white in

moderate demand though the supply is
about equal to the demand. We note
