Tba market for prints has continued more
active than for any other class of domestic
cottons, and prices have been on a very fair
scale for the season, and for tbe moro popu

for tho season. Cotton bags are unusually
dull and prices are weak. The small ship

these articles. Corset Jeans are In a consid

being passed. Muslin do lalncs are In fair
demand for tho season, and Prices are re
markably well sustained. Woolens gen

ur 1. Ki, tafOnnouy saia oe was ktbuucu
to seo the call published In the paper, and

Deen generally seen, anu mo w-amcr uu
propitlous for a largo meeting, he hoped that
when they adjourned It would r be for ono
week, and that a commltteo bo appointed to
report at that meeting a plan of action.
Capt. A. Grant was opposed to tho ap
pointment of tbo oommlttee. Tbe usual
way for thoeo wishing to form a military
organization was first to enroll themselves
and then clct their officers.
Capt. J. Tyler Powell thought the rlan for
action was laid down lu tho army regula

slain. , , .
Zrt Connolly did not understand why any
gentlem should come to tho meeting and
