Special telegrams from important dis

quite irnitular, previous gains having
beeo followed by hriukages in many in

at Pittsburg in staple merchandise, as

ed revival in trade at Ciurinnati, Detroit,
and Louisville has bad a depressing influ

the feature of the present week
was the susjiension of the foreign pur
chasing wLnh furnished the motive jwwer
of the preceding week's matket. Various
causes were assigned for the sudden slack
ing of interest iu American rails at Lon
dou and it was even suggested that mis
pjbivptiou in regard to the difficulties
in South Carolina had been effective in
this connection. The more reasonable
view of the matter is that the interest
s'vldenly shown in our securities abroad
was largely speculative that the simu
lation was overdone and quickly ex-hnus-.rd
itself. In support of that it might
lie mentioned that the foreign investment
uemaud for bonds has also been of a less
active character. At the same time Lon
don hits appeared ouly as a moderate sell

greater part of its recent purchases of both

The absence of liquidation from this
