Governments—Unusually active this afternoon
and dealers report a flood of orders from out of

buying and transactions ran up in the millions. [
The fours were the special feature and advanced
from 119 to 23; the four and a halfs also rose
Bharply, selling up to 113 ©114 for coupon;
the threes were 100!<j bid.
Bonds—There was a much better feeling in
railroad bonds to-day and some sharp advances I
were mat 1 '. The improvement ranged from I©7 j
per cent., the latter for Chesapeake & Ohio,
lass B, which rose to 97.
state Securities—
—There was a marked change for the
better in the temper of share speculation to-day
and purchases both for investment and specula
tive accounts were on a large scale. Money was
alro decidedly easier and after lending at }£ per
cent, per diem early in the day, declined to 2 per |
cent, per annum at the close. The banks were
much more liberal to borrowers. Total issue of i
Clearing House certificates $17,000,000, of which i
300,000 were taken by banks. During the day j
the feature of the market was the heavy buying j
for foreign account; also the action of the I

55,000,000 in legal tenders to this point.
The stock market opened at an advance of
H©3}j per cent., the latter for Central Pacific

attack was made on coal stocks, due to three re

New Jersey Central broke 5 per cent, to 70,
Philadelphia Reading, 4H to 893K, and Dela
ware, Lackawanna & Western 4to 109, this un

per cent. Western Union Telegraph about this
time became strong and rose to 50f;i, and this
turned the market once more. In the afternoon
Louisville & Nashville, and Missouri Pacific were
weak, the former selling down to 31 and the latter
to 09 }i. The transfer of legal * tenders
to this city by the United States
treasurer was now announced and money
market showed case, and prices moved up once
more. The speculation then became buoyant
and large blocks of stock changed hands, on the
way up. The comparison with last night's clos
ing prices will tell 'the story. Central Pacific was

Ayer's Sarsaparilla has demonstrated its
• power of euro for all diseases of the blood.
The Harpooner's Story.
Hew Bedford, June 1,1853. ■
De. J. C. Ater & Co.—Twenty years ago I
■was a harpooner in the North Pacific, -when five
others of the crew and myself were laid up with
scurvy. Our bodies were bloated, gums swollen
aud bleeding, teeth loose, purple blotches all
over us, and our breath seemed rotten. Take it
by and large we were pretty badly off. All our
lime-juico was accidentally destroyed, but the
captain had a couple dozen bottles of Ater's
Baiisafarilla ana gave us that. We recov
ered on it quieter than I have ever Been men
: brought about by any othertreatment for Scurvy,
' and I've seen a good deal of it. Seeing no men
tion in your Almanac of your Sarsaparilla being
good for scurvy, I thought you ought to know of
this, and so send you the facts. •
Respectfully yours, Ralph Y. 'Wikgate.
The Trooper's Experience.
Masten,Eaautolan<HS.Africa,)March7,lSS3. ' \
. Dr. J. C. Ater & Co.—Gentlemen: I have ;
much pleasure to testify to the great value of
your Sarsaparilla. We have been stationed
here for over two years, during which time we
had to live hi tents. Being under canvas for
such a time brought on what is called in this
country "veldt-sores." I had those sores for
sometime. I was advised to take your Sarsa
parilla, two bottles of which made my sores :
disappear rapidly, and I am now quite well. ■ '.;'.'
Yours truly, T. K. Boden,
Trooper, Cape Mounted liijiemen.
