The markets are, in the main, quiet,
with fced&tuffs inclining toward lower
values. Flour and meal aro unchanged,
while moats aro quoted stiff, the de
mind being chiefly supplied from the
newly-ourcd and unsmoked qualities.
But little animation is reported in the
wholesale market, merchants purchas
ing with caution, owing to the luck f
confidence in present values being
sustained for leading articles. Sugar
and molasses aro easy. Tha recent
oool weather has had good influence in
maturing cane in Louisiana, and for
the past ton days or more grinding has
progressed briskly. Our local markot
continues wollstockod with chickens',
and prices a'o dull, while turkeys,

A Hare IiiNtmire of Mercantile
It was away back in 18G1. in the
early days of the war, when all was
excitement trom one end ot the coun
try to the other, that business circles
were startled one morning by the an
nouncement that the bouse of Hood,
14on bright ex Co. bad suspended pay
ment Then, as now, the firm
was one ot the largest in the whole
sale dry goods jobbing trado of the
city. At hrst the news was discred
ited, lor, although only a short time
before tho house had been com
pelled to ask a temporary extension,
it was believed that it bad succeeded
in weathering its dangers, and was
again on a solid foundation. Tho
rumors, however, were found to be
only too truo, and an examination of
me doocs uiscioseu me met tnat tne
liabilities amounted in tha aggregate
to nearly $100,000. A committee was
appointed by tbe creditors to examine
tne condition ot anairs, and on its
recommendation it was decided to
compromise at seventy-five cents on
the dollar. Every creditor accepted
this proposal, the money paid, ana the
firm, absolved from all leg 1 obliga
tions, resumed business. Since that
time its operations have been trebled,
and to day it is credited by Brad-
street s ratings with a capital of be
tween 1500,000 and tl.000,000.
Ninetcon years have passed away.
Many ot tho creditors who voted
"ayo" on the proposition to compro
mise have passed to their final ac
count, and in some instances even
their children aro numbered with tbo
dead. Those who survive. 1 owever.
will this morning find in their mail a
circular letter couched in these terms:

befriended by our creditors at a time
when we were needing help, we in af
ter years created a fund intended for
their benefit. This we have the pleas
ure now to offer them. Covering in
its equitable application more thas
the percentage abated in our settle
ment under the rccommedalion of,
their committee of creditors, tho ex
cess in each case will represent a pro
rata apportionment of interest derived
from said fund. In grateful remem
brance, therefore, we inclose herewith
our encet lor f , J rusting you
will feel assured aliko of members no
longer with us as of those now couipo-
posing our urm, tnat this union is the
accomplishment of our constantly
cherished purpose we arc, yours tru
ly, Hood, Bonbrioiit & Co.
Iho total tmount which is avail
able for distribution," said a member
of tbe house yesterday, "is between
tl00.000andtl25.00O, and the parties
entitled to it number about 150. It is
a proud day for us, for it witnesses the
consummation of an object which we
have long had in view. The trouble
is," he continued, pointing to a pile of
checks which lay on tbe table before
him, "that wc aro in a quandary as to
where to send many of those docu
ments. Where an unpaid creditor is
dead we will send to the firm of which
ha wu a member, if it is still in ex
istence. But there are many of whom
we have entirely lost trik. and enmn

Sper ial t) the Courier-Journal.)
Washington, November 21. It
really begins to look as if there was an
intention to press the Star Route ac
cusation against Porsey. Tbe arrest
of ex-Deputy Sixth Auditor Lilley
will probably to followed by the arrest
of ex-Auditor MctJrew and Hadley,
tho Postmaster of Littlo Rock, Ark.,
who has just been removed, the
lawyers employed by Brady are taking
up the defense of all the accused. So
fr they have proved moro than a
match for the government.

William J. Coughlin.of Somcrvillo,
Mass., says; "In the fall of 187G I was
taken with a violent bleeding of the
lungs, followed by severe cough. I
was so weak at one time that I could
not leave my bed. In the summer of
1877 I was admitted to the city hospi
tal. While there the doctors said I
had a hole in my left lung as big as a
half dollar. I was so far gone at one
time a report went around that I was
dead. I gave up hope, but a friend
told me of Dr. V m. Hall's Balsam fOr
the Lungs. I got a bottle, when to my
surprise and gratification I commenced
to leel bettor, and to-day I feel in bet
ter spirits than I have in the past
"I write this hoping every one
afflicted with diseased lungs will be
induocd to take Dr. Hall's Balsam for
the lungs, and bo convinced that con
Sumption can be cured. Sold by
