There would be less unoccupied capital
here if the banks did not discourage the
speculation in grain.that has been so ram
pant summer. Several applications for
Joans to speculate in produce have been re
cently reinsed, the banks preferring to hold
the money idle. The comer in pork is said
"to be principally manipulated by outside
capital. The Eastward movement of grain
is conducted by only a few men, although
bank accommodations are willingly extend
ed to all legitimate shippers.
Eastern exchange is again a shade easier
to-day, sales between banks being principal
ly made at par rates. Over the counter ex
change was sold at l l<rof 1 per cent pre
mium, and bought at 110 of per cent
discount. The movement either way was
light for the season, not much being either
ottered or wanted.

There was a little more activity in pro
-duce circles to-day, with few notable
changes in price, except in wheat, which
was higher. Receipts of grain were liberal—
.a little in excess of what was expected, hut
they were exceeded by the shipments. New
Tork was reported dull and easier in most of
the markets, and onr shipping movement
was impeded by the scarcity of vessels, so
that onr markets were really firm under all
the circumstances. Dry goods were in mod
erate request only, the demand being mainly
in the shape of small orders of a miscella
neous character, to complete assortments.
In values no important chances were noted.
Standard cotton fabrics, such os bleached
and brown cottons, prints, ticks, etc-, and
the heavier woollen goods, are firmly held, ia
sympathy with rST? • mate
rial, while for all unseasonable
goods the market is weak. The grocery
trade was active, bo far as the leading sta
ples were concerned, and former prices were
adhered to with decided firmness. Side
goods were in fair request, and ruled steady.
There was no qnotable change in values.
The inquiry for choice batter shows no abate*
ment, and as tbe daily arrivals fall altogeth
er short of the demand, prices are still work
ing upwards, 19a220 being the ruling prices
to-day. The poorer sorts are also in demand,
but the prices offered are extremely low,
and the movement is slack, in consequence.
Bagging was in fair demand, without change
in values, though in cotton seamless goods
the tendency is rather upward. Cheese
met with a light inquiry at former rates, or
at lOalO l-2o for Now York factory, and at 7a
9 l-2c for Western do. There was consider
able activity in the fish trade, both
the local and interior demand
being of a liberal character, and, under
reduced stocks, the general market was firm,
the quoted price being folly sustained for
all descriptions except mackerel, which
were weak, in sympathy with the Eastern
market. Dried fruits were inactive and
generally weak, though not quotably lower.
Hay met with some inquiry for shipment,
and also with a fair local demand, and
prices were firm and higher. Leather re
mains unchanged. Oils ruled quiet and
steady. The hide market was firmer ror
cured stock, prices advancing 1 4c, or to
lll*4c for heavy, and to 121-4o for light.
Tobacco was quoted firm and steadv. The
market for lumber at the yards exhibited a
good degree of activity, and a very firm
feeling prevailed. The stocks, generally
speaking, are in good condition. The
metal, iron, and tinners' stock markets were
only fairly active at about former rates.
Kails met with a large inquiry at §O.OO rates.
Wool was dull and easy ; while in the mar
kets forpotatoee, poultry, broom-corn, beans,
and cooperage there was very little doing.
Railroad freights wore dull, but firmer.
Highwines were less active, but advanced
lc owing to a corresponding rise in prices in
New York. There was a light demand at
the advance, but literally nothing offering
till near the close. Sales were 100 brls ac
S$ 12c per gallon, and 200 brls at the close at
SSc. At 1 o'clock, SSc was bid.
Lake freights were quiet, but firmer. Hold
ers of vessels obtained l*4c advance early,
and 12c later, the offerings being light. A
total of 10 charters was]reported. part yester
day ofternoon, which will carry out 40,000
buwheat; 170,*900 bn corn, and 50,000 bn
oats. Sail rates closed at Sl* 2c on wheat,
7 3 4aSc on corn, 7a71 4c on barley, and 5 l-2o
on oats to Buffalo; 12 l-2o on wheat-, and 12c
on com to Oswego; 13 l-2c on wheat, and 12c
on com to Kingston. Through rates were
unchanged at 24c on corn to Boston and
Provisions were quiet and irregular. Mess
pork was almost inactive ; buyers were wil
ling to pay yesterday’s prices, but holders
generally asked an advance of 25a50c per
ri ; hence no trading in the options, which
are popularly supposed to be cornered,
though options for tne future were also
firmer. In fact, there was so much discus
sion abont the comer to-day that very little
time was left for actual trading. It would
seem that trouble is brewing about the pork
that is coming in from some other cities to
fill Chicago contracts. It is reported that
the Louisville pork is cut more deeply into
the fiank than is allowed by the rules of the
Chicago Board of Trade, and that some of
that pork now here is being overhauled, aud
recut, and rebranded, to makeitnass muster.
The head of the firm to which most of this
pork will he tendered went round on a visit
of inspection this morning, and was ordered
out of one packing house where a lot of this
pork was being overhauled. The firm say
that they will take all pork tendered that
comes up to the Chicago rule, hut will not
accept any that has been repacked and re
branded, because that sort of thing is espec
ially shat out by the rules of oar Board of
Trade. The chances are, that, till this dif
ficulty is settled, there will be but little
trading in pork. There is one notable fact
abont onr pork: the shipments from this
city since November 1, exceed the receipts
by barely 1,000 brls, leaving ns with nearly
the entire packing of the olty last winter in
store to-day. Lard was quiet, but decidedly
easier. Meats were quiet, but firm. Tho

■Wheat, was active and 11-2a2c higher*
though New York was dull, and Liverpool
unchanged. The advices from the other
eide were, however, conflicting, but the gen
eral tone was one of more steadiness, which
some of our operators interpreted to mean
the beginning of an upward movement, say
ing that Liverpool has been beared by parties
who want to buy in the United States for
exports. There were ft good buying
Ciders from the country dh the floor this
morning, which were sent in independent of
Eastern news, and Milwaukee advanced 2c
early this morning for some unreported
reafeon. which brought in several orders from
that city. The firmer feeling to-day was
probably a simple reaction from former
weakness, as many parties concluded it was
safe to buy. Add to this that a better local
demand was called out on account of the fact
that there would he no afternoon Board,
ut which shorts could fill in.

Coin was more active, and averaged l--o
higher in sympathy with wheat, though New
iork wasauuand closed lower. The cauae
of the advance was the presence of a fair
orders on the floor to buy, and a
failing off in the number of selling orders
from the country, while local operators were
not specially busy. Shippers were discourag
ed by the scarcity of vessels, and the conse*
quent attempt cf vessel owners to advance
freights; hut took hold about the middle of
the session and transacted a fair business.

Yesterday bids were opened at the fort for
furnishing the Government with 1,500,000
Eounds of com and 500,000 pounds of oats, to
e delivered at Forts Hays, Lamed, and
Dodge. The contracts wore not awarded,
but the followingbeing the lowest bids and

Mr. McDaniel, of Kansas City, bid to fur
nish the com at Fort Hays, transported via
K. P. Kailway, at $l:S0 per owt. Mr. D. N.
Powers’ bid for furnishing oats to same post

It is worth noticing that there is consider
able difference between now and the days
before railroads were built. Four years ago
the corn furnished Fort Dodge cost $7.

The San Francisco Market Review says:
The year we have just passed through was a
very severe one on our formers, who only in very
limited sections of the State secured their crops-
Throughout the great central valleys of Califor.
nia (certainly, under favorable circumstances,
one of the most wonderfully productive bodies of
iandin the world), the crops wore almost an en
tire failure ; and even in locations neater the
coast, where the rainfall was somewhat greater,
iheyield of cereals was very poor indeed—in
in few oases amounting to over hall a crop. The
result has been that our exports of produce,
which during 1809-70 had already ehownj a seri
ous diminution from former years, fell oil at once
coper cent, amounting to only 114,000 tons of
wheat and Hour. ns against
200,c00 the *year before, and • nearly
3C0.C00 In ISC9 70. It is gratifying to be able to
state, in that respect, we will have no cause for
complaint this season, for our crop is the heaviest
ever harvested in the State, and one of the very
best as regards quality; and, now that the evil is
past, we may be permitted to say that we do not
iooktm the droughts of the past two years as by
any means an unmlxed evil, for they have demon
strated the necessity of a more varied system of
agriculture, and a resort to irrigation. On the
first point it is only necessary to say, that, while
our wheat farmers made almost an absolute fail
ure, the wool-grower, fruit-grower, and hop
grower all did well. Some of these interests are
yet comparatively small, but they have been de
veloped Bulllcientiy to show that, under a proper
distribution of agriculture, no season can be
wholly disastrous in California.
The year we have entered upon promises to be
one of great prosperity. Our planting season was
most favorable, commencing early, and enabling
the farmers to get in a large area of land; and.
although our regular spring rains were light and
very late, wo had along period of cool weather,
which was quite as beneficial as our May showers
would have been. The crop now being harvested
ie by far the largest and finest ever grown in
this State, and will realize many millions of dol
lars to the farming classes, the result of which
will be a general enhancement of values, and a
consequent increase of wealth over the entire
receipts of flour and wheat for the harvest

The Bsginaw Courier of yesterday says : “The
salt market has taken another hitch smelling a
little of a 'corner.' During the past ten days
salt has sold down to $l 25, and was slow at $1.39,
while last night scarcely a barrel could be pro
cured for sl.co, and we doubt whether one thou
sand barrels can bo picked up ou the river to-day
at the latter figures. It has leaked out that a
Chicago firm has been bujing up the market
pretty close for the past two wteks, and have
now on hand and under contract for delivery
50,C00 to 70 OCO barrels. J. L. Hurd & Co. have
been doing but little iu the market, but yester
day, under advices from Toledo and Chicago in
dioatlcg a rising market, bought between 20,000
and 30 oio barrels, which, with the amount on
hand, and the salt in the hands of the Chicago
firm, constitute pretty much all the salt to be
had on the river. From the tone of the market
yetterdav a better state of affairs may reasonably
Tco Bay City Journal thus comments on a new
feature in the salt market: “ Among the con
signments ou the steamer Benton are ICO sacks
or Goodrich salt, consigned to parties in East
Saginaw gsThla is an event unlooked for by man
ufacturers. They had expected competition in
CMc ago and other outside markets, but, having
Cenaca salt bought to their home is indeed, an
um-xpecied, strange, and rather laughable aur
price. Whether to look for cargo lots of Syra
cuse salt delivered on our docks, we know not.
This we know, salt can be manufacture in this
volley by stenm process 25 to 80 per cent, cheaper
han cUewhere; and if a foreign product drives
our own out of the market, it la obvious whore
the fault lies.”

LEATHER.—The market Is fair, active and
firm, so far as domestic stock is concerned, bat
quiet and easy for imported leather. The Shoe
amt Leather Reporter says of the Boston market:
“ The accumulation of leather is still going on,
without resulting In any fall In price, as the tan
ners are confident of a large demand springing
np as soon as the boot and shoe trade is once
more fully under way, when the supply will be
speedily absorbed by the demand. The market
for hemlock sole continues dull, and prices, es
pecially of inferior grades, rule rather In favor of
buyers. Choice lots, however, sell at onr quota
tions. The demand is still mostly for middle aud
over-weJgnts ; also, for good damaged. There la
a fair inquiry for oak. Union crop is accumu
lating, but prices are equally sustained with
those of other descriptions.”

CATTLE—The market during the past week
has exhibited a firmer, healthier tone: the more
favorable condition of the Eastern markets, and
the lighter receipts having exerted a favorable
influence. Trade, however, has been lacking in
activity, and sellers have not succeeded iu es
tablishing any important advance, the closing
rates exhibiting but slight change from those
current a week ago. Good to choice grades have
sold well, shippers standing ready to take all
suitable offerings at fair prices, but the poorer
sorts (which comprised the bulk of the supply) :
were more or leas neglected throughout, and
sold slowly. In quality, the stock offered for
sale did not vary materially from that of the
precceding two or three weeks; the average
being perhaps a trifle better. The best droves
were taken on New York, Boston and Albany
account at $6 0006 62* (the outside figure being
realized in but two instances), while buyers lor
Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Buffalo and Detroit
operated at §4 5005 73, for common to choice
steers of from I,ICO to 1.300 lbs average.
The demand for stock steers con
tinues fair, feeders from Indiana,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, and from sections of tnis
State, being in attendance, and with a moderate
supply on sale holders have been enabled to real
ise promptly and at very foil prices, sales mak
ing at §3 0038 50 for common, and at §3 7534.25
for-good lots of from 900 to 1,03n lbs average.
Butchers supplied themselves ohtflyat S3 0304.00,
though higher and lower prices were in some in
stances paid* Veal calves are In steady fair de
mand and sell readily at §3.7534 50 for common
to fair and at $5.0035.75 for good to choice. Texas
and Cherokee cattle continue plenty, and prices
have ruled comparatively steady at about last
week’s range. Our receipts so far, have been of
better duality tb&n those in former seasons.
To day the market was quiet. Neither localnor
outside buyers seemed disposed to invest to any
considerable extent, and although the supply was
baht, it was with difficulty that the pens were
cleared. The market closed steady at the sub

BOGS—Daring tne past week the receipts of
hogs have been 43.626, against 40 471 last week,
and 40,433 week before last. Since January Ist
the arrivals have been 1,C23 508, against 1,034,633
fortbe corresponding period last year—an in
crease of 570,070. The week has been an active
and prosperous one for sellers. The attendance
of buyers has been large,and under a steady,
strong demand the pecs were kept cleared at
steadily advancing prices. The principal de
mand, as heretofore, was on New York and Bos
ton account, though considerable par
chases were made by Philadelphia, Cleve
land and Canadian buyers, and by the local
city trade. The extreme range of prices, for oar
lots was $3.76® 4 355, though the great balk of
the transfers were within the range of $4 00®4.50.
To-day a fairly active demand existed and the
market ruled steady at substantially yesterday’s
prices. The supply was rather larger than had
been looked for—reaching 6,523 -but there proved
to be no surplus, all selling, and at satisfactory
prices.' The market closed steady at 54.C0®4.10

with but slight variation in prices. The receipts
are extremely light, but aside from supplying
the city trade, there is little or no demand, and
values do not improve, remaining steady at $3.00

$4.26®5.00 for good to choice. Stock sheep are

A Mother’* Hate of Her Child*
From tbe Cincinnati Times, July is.
On Saturday morning last, the peoole liv
ing on one of our popular thoroughfares at
the West End, were awakened, to a contem
plation of a remarkable and most unnatural
degree of hate, as exhibited, in the conduct
of a mother toward, her child. The facts,
furnished us from an nnciudationabld source,
are as follows:
At the time above mentioned theneighbor
hood was aroused by the terrible screaming
of a child. Several persons at once entered
the house from whence cries of pain and dis
tress came, and there looked upon a sight
sufficient to startle the least sympathetic.
Over a bath-tub one-third fall of water a
woman was standing holding a child about
twenty-six months old, and in her rage was
sousing it in the water evidently with the
intent of drowning.
At this critical moment the servant girl,
having heard the distressing cries of the
little one. rushed to the scene, and, hading
the door of the bath-room locked, forced an
entrance. Finding the mother standing over
the bath-tub, holding the head of the child
nnder water, she hastily rescued the little
victim from the almost fatal grasp of the
woman, and* after ineffectual endeavors to
restore consciousness to the child, a physi
cian was called, who was successful, after a
little time, in restoring life to it.
Eev. Edward Parcel! was called, and in
terested himself in the matter to such an
extent that it was promised the child should
he removed that afternoon. Accordingly,
some of tho relatives visited the house for
this purpose, but the doors and windows
were so securely bolted that they did not.
effect an ~: entrance, as everything
seemed to be so qniet. But
at four o’clock of the afternoon
the scene changed, for the agonizing cries of
tbe child were again heard, and on this oc
casion it wonld seem that the little one could
not possibly escape death, for the mother
had cut an ugly gash in its neck, under the
left ear. nearly two inches in length* before
her hand was stayed.
Immediately after this frightfully
murderous proceeding the relatives
were again called. They were visited
by some of the neighbors* who said
that if the child was not removed at once*
legal steps would be taken in the matter.
So one of the relatives took to his home the
little sufferer, whose garments was horribly
stained with its own innocent blood. It is
probable that the child may recover. The
mother is the daughter of one of onr old and
wealthy citizens, and the only ground that
upon which her murderous intent can be
palliated is supposed insanity from a too free
use of liquors.
