TJnsettled Condition In Brazil.
New Yokk, December 24. Charles R.
Flint, treasurer of the New York Com
mercial Company limited, has received a
cable dispatch from the company's mer
cantile company in whose favor the
province of Fara granted a special conces
sion, advising of the decline in exchange
of three-fourths penny, and an advance
in the price of rubber of 100 rcis, with
the market strong holders not free sellers.
The stock on sale is seventy-five tons.
Flint & Co., have u cable from Kio ad
vising that the rate of the exchange is
25?iT. Receipts of rubber since Decem
ber amount in all to 950 tons beitH 40
per cent less than the average receipts
for the corresponding periods of the
previous three years. From this Flint
infers that the unsettled condition of af
fairs in Brazil is interfering withthegath
ering of rubber.
