Since last night It has been raining
continually, nnd everybody has been
housod during the entire day.
Flour Is dull, so far as impound Hour Is
concerned. The market Is bare of sound
grades, however, and there Is a good de
mand for It. Choice Hour ! also very
scarce. There Is a good demand for
choice hay, but there is no call lor any
other kind. Corn Is very quiet, and
there is but little demand : a lew car of
white will sell at the mill". The roctlpts
of oats since our lat report have been In
excess of the demaud, and have de
clined one cent. Meat and bran are quiet
and dull. '1 here Is an overstock of but
ler on the maket, aud nalcs are very
slow. There Is an abundance of medium
grade uppl In the city, and they find
slow sale, wlillo there U a good demand
for strlo'ly choice Michigan and Southern
Illinois. 1 he market Is abundantly sup
piled with poultry of all kiuds, and none
Is wanted here. Tlio receipt of drc-std
meats are generally lu bad order owing
to the weather, aud it will be well for
hlppers to avoid this market.
frirOur fr.'ends should bear in tnlud
that the prices here given are usually for
sales from first hands lu round lots. In
