Since last report dried apples have
been very quiet. The season is about
over for drying and fortunately for
the people, nearly all had been sold
to dealers before the decline. Those
who have small lots to offer, seem
contented with the good things they
have had, and readily accept the pre
vailing prices. Not much prospect
of better prices soon. The truth is
dried apples have never been really
worth the extreme prices they have
been sold for, and it is very uncer
tain whether those who have largely
invested in them will realize much
profit on their investment. Since
last week eggs have steadily declined
until they are now fully 3c lower
thau last week. 18 cents being the
ruling price at Nashville. They are
not at their lowest yet we fear. Last
year they went to 12 cents in January
and may go to it this year. In this
market 1G to 17 cents is all they are
worth and may be even lower before
the week ends. Poultry is dull ex
cept turkeys, which are in good de
mand as the holidays approach.

" NASHVILLE MARKET REPORT,
Corrected from the Nashville American
every Thursday evenine.
Wednesday, Dec. 17. The vol
ume of business transacted today in
the general market was fully up to
expectations. All departments in
season were quite busy, though there
is evidently less demand for holiday
goods, country merchants having
been supplied with all they expect
to need. The demand for fancy gro
ceries, as well as heavy goods has
been something enormous during the
last two weeks, but today the inquiry
seems to be confined more to staple
articles than otherwise. Sugar and
coffee rule firm, meat easy and lard
easy. Chickens and hens are quiet
dull at quotations. Eggs are dull at
18c and the tendency is toward lower
prices, as the market is supplied and
the market in New York lower. But
ter is dull except for very choice.
Wheat dull. Corn is in fair Southern
request for milling purposes. Ordi
nary feed corn is dull. Hay rules
steady and bran firm.

Mr. Harrison's little scheme of push
ing the Force bill for his own person
al benefit is at last slowly beginning
to percolate through tho brains of
the other Presidential candidates,
and the result is a decided, coolness
towards that measure ou the part of
a number of leading republicans. It
is believed that Mr. Harrison is figu
ring that the thousands of supervis
ors and deputy supervisors who
would be appointed under this bill,
should it become a law, might be
utilized to form the basis of a Harri
son machine that might control
enough of the state delegations to the
next republican national convention
to insure his nomination.
There Is a very strong probability
that the Force bill will be shelved
for good this week. The administra
tion and the republican Senators of
the Hoar stripe have heaid from the
people, and are in almost a panic in
their anxiety to do something to sat
isfy the public demand for money;
and yet they are mortally afraid that
when once a financial bill or any
kind gets before the Senate a substi
tute providing for free coinage will
be adopted. It was this fear which
caused certain Senators to attempt to
get democratic Senators to promise
that If a bill was introduced author
izing the Secretary of the Treasury
to purchase anywhere from twenty
to thirty millions of dollars worth of
silver bullion they would not offer
free coinage. as a substitute for it. It
is needless to say that no democrats
made any promise ; it is the policy of
the democratic Senators to keep clear
of all entanglements, in order to be
prepared to take advantage of any
circumstances that may occur to se
cure legislation in behalf of the peo
Mr. Harrison has, I am credibly
informed, made up hi3 mind to send
a special message to Congre&s intima
tine what kind of a financial bill he
would sign. He has so little inllu
ence in Congress that it matters little
what he recommends.
No nomination for the vacancy on
the bench of the Supreme Court lias
been sent to the Senate, and I am
told by a republican Senator that it is
doubtful whether it will go in until
the Force bill is disposed of, because
Mr. Harrison has tendered the ap
poinmtent to Senator Spooner, and
he is afraid to have him leave the
Senate before the vote is taken on
the Force bill the margin is too
small to loose a vote.
Tho farce called an investigation of
the Pension office has been resumed
by the House committee. The com
mittee shows a great deal more anx
iety not to find crookedness than it
does to find it. An attempt will be
made to get the committee to look
into the methods by which a son of
Commissioner ltaum became Attor
ney for a largo number of applicants,
whose claims had been practically
pigeon-holed in this office before he
won viiaigc ui miciu

a May day at the lovely and charm
ing "Cottage Home," made delight
ful to its guests by its exceptional
host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
DcRard. After picnicing and mirth
ful chit chat, a walk in search of hol
ly and the legended mistle-toe was
suggested, after which gaming and
some killing (?), and even a boat ride
of us six, balanced by a seventh of
170 lbs, were the pleasantries enjoyed
until tea time. Those of us who had
not sailed the Rhine's waters, and
neslled under the shadows of its cas

of this veritable Southland Hudson,
and pictured Collins river with its
beetling mountain homes of happier
fame and worthier note. After an
hour's ride, we landed to the music of
"Italia beloved, land of beauty, of
sunlight and song."
The evening hours almost waned
into Sunday merrily not without a
'joker." On Sabbath morning we,
in company with tho newly honored
D. D., roamed leisurely to the hard
by country church, and enjoyed its
simple services with mellowed hearts,
and at close, without "form or rite,"
or choir, joined with earnest spirit
in the old songs of nearly "long
ago." In the afternoon, with no
hope of longer lingering, we made a
regretful leave, feeding as we waved

been most joyously "holidayed," and
