BALTIMORE MARKET,
(AND INCIDENTS CONNECTED THEREWITH,)
For the J Feck ending last evening.
REM AUKS.—The business of the week just leav
ing us has been inactive rather than otherwise; and
with the exception of a little excitement on Thurs
day afternoon, on receipt of the intelligence by tele
legraph of the arrival at New York, of the auxiliary
steamer Sarah Sands, from Liverpool, advising of a
further decline in the price of Breadstufis, the week
would have passed away without being scarcely re
membered—except by those whose paper was ma
tured, and who found difficulty, (as many still do,)
to relieve themselves by bank facilities, so stringent
does the money market yet continue. -The following
comparative statement will show the prices of Bread
stufis and Cotton in Liverpool, at the dates mention
ed—

AMERICAN DRY GOODS.—The market re
mains relatively quiet; and the only sales we have
to note are a few pkgs. of Drills, taken recently for
the Brazil market, at late previous prices.
BEESWAX. -The market is still without activi
ty, and consequently no improvement in price.
BREAD.—The demand for Crackers and Biscuit,
particularly Pilot and Navy, is active; of the latter
considerable shipments, both foreign and coastwise,
are making. H ithiu the last three days Bakers
have reduced their rates ' ct. per lb., all round—and
we now quote Crackers 5., Pilot Biscuit 1 , and
Navy do. 3els. per lb.
CANDLES.—.Sperm remain about as for some lint •
past, nominally 32a33 cts., probably the latter not
as readily obtained. Adamantine and Mould Tal
low, as quoted—the latter, for city-manufactured,
brisk.
COCOA. —An invoice of 2*20 bags Guayaquil has
sold this week at 0 4 cts. per ll>., 1-mg price, 4 mos.
COFFEE.—The stock in fii>t hands is too limited
to admit of transactions to even a very moderate ex
tent. The sales of the week comprise about 500
bags Rio at 7;a7and a small l"t of Laguavra at 7
cts. per lb., 0 lies. An import of 2710 bags Rio ar
rived via New 1 oik on Thursday .
COTTER.—We note sales of 3000 lbs. Old at 17 4 ?
cts. per lb., cash.
COTTON.—The receipts at all Southern points
since Sept. Ist to latest dale, have been as follow:
Of the crop of .. I*47— I*4o
Guiph, . .. .ba1e5,701,43*.. 035,*57.. Inc. 125,5*1
Upl. and S.I. .. 1*7,230 ..3*0,953.. Dec. 193,723
Total., .bales 94*,60S 1,010, *10 Dec. (>*,142 ,
The only transactions reported comprise about 100
bales Cpland at * 4 cts. per lb., 0 and * mos.
DYE WOODS.— An import of 03 toils St. Domingo
Logwood has sold since ourlat at .*>'l4 per ton, cash.
FEATHERS. —Th 'transactions of the week have
again been heavy in the aggregate, the lots picked
up reaching nearly 20,000 lbs. of Western Live
Geese, mostly at 30//31 cts. per lb., cash. 'The stock
is now much reduced, nearly 10,000 lbs. having been
taken out of market within two weeks.
FISH. —'There is no change in prices,and the trans
actions in Dry Codfish have been quite moderate.
Mackerel have been in more active request, but pri- !
ces remain steady, which we quote as follow: No. 3,
5a #5.25, for Halifax and Massachusetts inspection;
No. 2, On $0.25; and No. 1, 8.25a > *.50.
FLOUR AND MEAL.—We remarked in our
last week's report, that Howard street Flour had
come down from $5.75 to $5.50, in consequence of
the Acadia's advices; subsequently, City Mills,which ,
was apparently firmly held at $6, gave way, and
iff! 5.75 was accepted fur a few hundred brls. On
Wednesday, holders of Howard street rallied, and on
that and the day following were enabled for some 800
a 1000 brls. to obtain #'5.62] per brl. In the after
noon, however, of Thursday, the Sarah Sands' ac
counts were received by telegraph, advising of a
further decline of Is. per brl. in Liverpool previous
to her leaving on 2'id ult., and consequently no furth
er operations took place on that clay. Yesterday
there were no sales that we could learn; buyers of
fered #5.50 for Howard street, and some sellers
were willing to accept #5.62], the previous price,
while others refused to sell at either. No sales of
City Mills have been reported since early in the
week as above referred to; and as the stock of all
denominations is light, and inspections again lower
than last week, there appears to be much firmness in
the market on the part <->1 holders. About 750 brls.
City Mills Corn Meal have sold at #2.87] per brl.,
and 75 puns, at #14.50. Penna. is offered at #2.75
per brl., but we have heard of no sales. Inspected
this week:
Corn Meal, 76 hhds. 1,407 brls.—
Rye Flour, 150 brls.—
Howard street Flour, . .6,409 brls., 52 hf. bids.
City Mills ditto, ...2,229 44 280 44
Family ditto, 3bo 44 • 44
8,998 brls. 332 hf. brls.
Forming a total of 9,164 brls. Wheat Flour. Ex
ported within the same time to foreign ports, 4,03(j
bids, of Flour, and 75 hhds. and 323 bids. Corn Meal.
FRUIT.—Very choice Dried Apples have sold
since our last, in lots of 30 to 40 bushels, at #' I per
bushel, cash. Dried Peaches are offered at 2a #2.25
for unpeeied quarters and halves, but are dull of sale.
GRAIN.—The receipts of Wheat still continue
light, although there have arrived within the last 3
or 4 days two or three cargoes from Virginia—which
remained unsold at the time of writing out this re
port at the close of the market. One of the cargoes
was white, but both held above the views of pur
chasers, as good to prime lots of red will not command
over 1.20a# 1.22 per bushel. Corn has also been in
limited supply, although there have a few cargoes
arrived, but prices remain pretty steady, at 50u5l
cts. for white and 51a52 for yellow, and we cannot
perceive that the Sarah Sands' advices have exerted |
any influence whatever on the Grain market. The ;
stock of Oats is at present ample of various qualities, 1
and prices range from 37 to 43 cts. per bushel, but !
dull of sale. White Beans may be quoted la #' 1.061, !
and Black-eyed Peas 87]a90 cts.
HEMP.— We have not heard of any transactions'
during the week. The supply of any description is
very light.
HIDES.—The market is at present quite bare, ex- ,
cept the stock which is in second hands.
IRON.—Pig remains devoid of animation, and
quotations are little more than nominal, generally
above the prices, probably, for which holders would
contend. We note the sale of 20 tons old Hoop Iron,
from vessel, at #2O per ton, cash.
LATHS.—Two cargoes, about 1)00,000, of Eastern ;
Sawed 1] inch, have sold this week at 1.37]a#1.50
per M.
MOLASSES.—The sales of the week have been
quite moderate, not exceeding 200a300 brls. New
Orleans at 27 cts. per gallon, 4 mos. On Tuesday,
314 hhds. new crop Cardenas, sold by auction, at
21i}a23, and 41 trcs. do. at 23] cts. per gallon, 4 mos.
NAILS.—The prices remain unchanged, and the
demand, though not brisk, continues fair.
NAVAL STORES.—We have no material varia
tion to note in any article, prices generally remain
ns for some time past except that Spirits Turpentine
may he considered a little firmer.
OlLS.—Linseed has further improved, and sold at
6H70 cts. per gallon. Winter Sperm is rather dull
of sale, hut prices are still quoted at 1.25a# 1.30 for
unbleached and blenched.
PLASTER PARIS.—The sales of the week have
been at #3 per ton.
PROVISIONS. —The market is a good deal un
settled, as regards prices, and most descriptions so
far from a uniform rate, that we find it difficult to
come nt a quotation that docs not conflict with one or
more sellers. There is a wide margin between the
extremes, and at our outside figures the market is
dull.
Beef. —Transactions continue in a limited way for
brls., as the article is taken chiefly for ships' stores,
at #l2 for Mess, and #lO for No. 1.
Pork. —The market is not active, but the week's •
I sales comprise 160a200 brls., taken for export at
j $ 11, $ 1 1.50 and sl2 for Mess, and $9, $9.50 and
I $lO for Prime.
Bacon. —Transactions in the aggregate for the
week will exhibit a fair amount of business, but we
are without a settled price to quote, and therefore
can only name the extremes, as reported to us, at
which sales have been effected: Shoulders, cts.;
Sides, 6-a7; Hams, Siall.the latter for extra cured;
and for hog round, 6£a7.
j Lard. —The transactions have been probably 100
i. I brls., in lots, at 7 cts., cash, and for some small parcels
j ; 7 } has been obtained; and about 1000 kegs at 7]a7o,
j the latter on time, adding interest, or less 2 per cent.
for cash. For a parcel of 1000 kegs very prime, (qua!-
I ity known to parties,) 7g cts., cash, has been offered,
[ time of delivery optional with seller, but not after
20th March.
Butter —Is in fair demand, and some 400a500 kegs 1
have been sold, including Western at 13a15.; cts., I
and Glades in choice dairies at 17 cts. per lb., ~cash.
. Roll is selling in brls. at 15a 10 cts.
Cheese. —Western continues in fair supply with a
very moderate demand at 7!,w7 4 > cts. The stock of
Eastern is more limited, but prices are steady at ha
i 10 cts., for good shipping qualities.
RICE-—ls in moderate demand, and has been scll
, ing at 3.60a s3.*7£ per 100 lbs., 4 mos.
.SEEDS. —Clover has been selling at 4a $4.50 per
bushel for common to strictly prime quality. A par-
I eel of 20a30 bushels Timothy, not over good, has sold !
;at $3. Flax is a little better, and will command 1
| 1.33a $ 1.35 per bushel.
SPIRITS.—N. E. Rum will not command over 30 j
cts. per gallon. Whiskey, in fair demand, remains
steady at 25 cts. in lihds., and 20 in brls., the last
| week's rates.
SUGARS.—The market continues much as last
reported, the demand being only moderate and prices
steady. Smalt lots, probably 150 hhds. New Orleans,
have sold at 4ash cts. per lb., 4 mos. By auction on
I Tuesday, 07 hhds. Porto Rico sold at 5.30a55.40 j
per 100 lbs., 4 mos. The stock in first hands in this <
market at present does not probably exceed 300hdds. 1
TOBACCO.—'The market continues quiet, but not
| more than ordinarily so for the season. Sales during .
( the week have been rather more active than we have
been enabled to report since the advent of the new
, year, having amounted to 200a300 hhds. Maryland,
which comprised common at $2.50, to good middling J
1 at SO, included in which were a few hhds. of Ground j
, Leaf. 'The transactions in Ohio have been very lim
ited at 3a $7 per 100 lbs.; but the stock is too light
1 and quality too inferior for operations, neither will
they improve until the canal navigation opens in
the spring. —The inspections this wet k amount to
2* hhds. .Maryland, lb do. Ohio, and 4 Virginia—
total, 4* hhds. Exported within the same lime to
foreign ports, 1,059 hhds.; and of Maryland and Ohio

THE MARKETS.
j For abstracts of the Markets generally, see next > I
page: the following presents the only new features
during three days subsequent to those dates:—
At Boston: Small sales of St. Domingo CofTec had
been made at 6]a6£ cts., 6 mos. Corn was tending
downward in price, yellow flat selling at 62, and c
| white at CO cts. Flour was depressed and limited c

lbs., had sold at S cts. per 1!)., cash, for rendered.
At A'no York: the market for Brcadstuffs was not
materially altered by the steamer's news. The Pa
triot's correspondent under date of Thursday P. M.,
says: The market for Flour here is somewhat firmer
to-day, the news being considered favorable by most
dealers.—About 400 brls., this State and Moslem
| in xed brands, have been taken nt #5.87]a5.93};
■ small lots straight brands at #6; pure Genesee at
#6.18}a6.25. No sales of Southern brands. Rye
Flour and Corn Meal are dull at previous quotations.
The stock of Flour now in this c.ty is estimated at
about 160,000 barrels. Nothing doing in Wheat.
There is more firmness in the market for Com, and
no sales of good can he effected at less than 60 cents
per bushel; 20,000 bushels were taken yesterday at
60a(>3 cts., as to quality. Rye is held atßßa9o cents.

mos. Our money market is decidedly easier. It is
estimated that our hanks have now in their vaults at
least #6,500,000 in specie, and very little is being
shipped to Europe.
At Philadelphia: The Daily News of yesterday,
from which we copy, remarks as follows: The money
market has improved a shade, and good paper is
easily ncgociublc; while the general appearance of
affairs is much more gratifying than at the close of
last week. There is a full supply of vessels in port,
and freights are dull, West India rates ruling very
low, while Flour to Liverpool is but 2a2s. 6d. per
brl., and Grain Bd. per bushel, with but little offer
ing. The market for Flour and Meal, since our last
report, has been more active, a fair demand having
resulted from a considerable concession on the part of
holders, and we notice sales of about 6,000 brls. I
Flour, chiefly at #5.75 per brl. for standard brands; t
some better lots at 5.81 ]a#s.B7J. Rye Flour is I
lower, being freely offered at #3.75 per brl. Corn 1
Meal has declined, with sales of about 4,000 brls., I
Penna. at #2.50 and some lots of Brandywine at I
2.62]a#2.68. The market closes to-day, how- , >
ever, with more buyers at #2.50 than sellers, and I
holders seem inclined to advance their rates 12] cts. |
per brl. There is but little demand for Wheat and n
prices have with Flour receded. Wc notice sales of p
good and prime red at from 130 to 135 cts. per bushel, a
closing to-day with a sale of Penna. red at the last |
figures. There has been considerable inquiry for \
Corn, with sales of yellow at 55 cts. per 56 lbs. Oats c
are dull at 41a43 cts. Hemp is in demand with the i
sales of 170 hales American Dew-rotcd at 130a#140 , s
per ton. Whiskey, increasing in stock and prices, r
** lower, hhds. 23]24, and brls. 25. Good Sugar in n
fair demand, hut common quality dull. j r
At New Orleans: The demand for Cotton, says the 1
Delta,wasquite animated on the Ist inst.,and the sales, [

the North, summed up 8000 bales. Prices ranged from t
6to 8 cts. for ord. so fair. Sugar still brisk, and 800 1
hhds. sold—Fair 4to 4} c. 1000 brls. Molasses taken 1

ARRIVAL OF THE SARAII SANDS.
The auxiliary steamer Sarah Sands arrived at New
York on Thursday morning, having left Liverpool
22d ult., to which date she brings letters and papers.
The following is a telegraphic abstract of her ac
counts:
Flour had further declined Is. per barrel. The
best American Western Canal Flour was selling at
28s. bd. to 295. Tne quotations by the Acadia were
295. Cd. to 30s. Corn .M a! also slightly declined.
Grain. lndian Corn had uLo receded about Is.
per quarter of lbs. The quotations were noted
at 29 to 35 shillings as to quality. Wheat had also i
declined a shade, but uo figures given.
Cotton. —The market closed steady and the quota- i
tions brought out by the Acadia had b.-en sustained. j
The Money market had improved, and was stiil
improving. The general aspect was more favorable, j
Provisions dull and demand moderate—prices rath- ,
er drooping.
No general or political news of moment.
Another account also by telegraph:
Liverpool Cotton Market , Jan. 21.—Sales of 150

The following sensible and well-timed article we j
copy from the "Baltimore Enterprise," a weekly J
paper recently gotten up, and now in the course of (
publication, by Messrs. W. TAYLOR & Co., and edit- J
ed by JOHN 11. HEWITT, Esq. As regards its being J
sensible, the subject speaks for itself; and its being ]
well-timed, is, wc consider, because of the legisla- '
turc of the state being now in session, can take ac- <
tion, if petitioned so to do, upon the subject of the i {
Pilot-laws; which, if the coasting feature be dis- ; {
pensed with, would not only facilitate to a great ex- <
tent the measures or similar measures, suggested in J
the article before us, but would advance also the j
grain-growing and iron and coal interests, by offer-
ing just so much more in the aggregate each year as j J
masters of coasting vessels arc compelled by the i *
present law to pay for constructive or other pilotage ' ]
rates, which they could easily dispense with by be- j J
ing permitted to become their own pilots, as is the |
case in our neighboring city of Philadelphia. Wc j
commend the whole subject to the good understand- J
ing of the citizens of Maryland, and particularly the
Farmers and those in the farming interest.

COMMERCIAL ADVANTAGES OF BALTIMORE.
When we commenced our journal, we determined i
to devote a portion of our time and columns to the i
commercial interests of a city, which, with the ex- i
ercise of proper energy on the part of its capitalists
and business men, will, one day, rejoice in the title j
of the emporium of our land.
Conversing with an intelligent gentleman who has j
made these matters his peculiar study, we were con- j
vinccd of the availability of the forests in the vici- |
nity of the Chesapeake bay, and hence their value j .
to the trade of Baltimore. To this fact we would j
call the attention of capitalists.
These forests are larger and the wood of better fibre .
than those of any other section of the country, north .
or south. The communication to and from tlieni is .
easy —and their location such as to make their appli- .
cation to commercial purposes, equal, if not superior
to any other. The entire extent of our bay, on both .
sides, with the rivers and streams tributary to it, !
gives us connection with the best woods for timber, J
whether for ship building, fortifications, houses or [
machinery—cooper-stuffs, fuel, or whatever uses
wood is applied to. Our market enters into the ,
heart of the woodlands of Pennsylvania and New |
York, by means of the Susquehanna, and into our ' J
own State and Virginia, by the Rappahannock, the |
Potomac, and Janus river; while North Carolina j j
and Delaware arc equally tributary to us. Forests j
in which the axe has never been heard, enriched ; J
with the most valuable timbers, and accessible in so *
easy and so many ways, should be turned to some
use. '
Our agricultural interest lias of late engrossed so 1
much of our attention, that our vast forests have, as ■
it were, grown out of our recollection. Coal is now '
rapidly supplying the place of wood for fuel, and it J
is time that we should turn our attention to other J
uses for our woods. Timber lands are cheaper here
than they are in the northern and eastern states, or j
even in the southern. On the St. John's, St. Croix, j I
Penobscot and Kennebeck rivers, and their tributaries, ,
the timber for one hundred miles from their mouths, i
has been destroyed, and now the lumber speculators j
have to pierce* fifteen and twenty miles from their :
hanks iu order to supply the trade. Large profits I c
have been the result ol this trade, which has for b
years sustained a large population. If such things v
have succeeded elsewhere, why should not toe im- v
prove the advantages nature has given us, and in con- 1 e
ncction with all our other resources, apply our oner- o
gies to this trade, and give, at least one million per
annum of extra circulation to our city, and in that 1<
proportion advance its interests? This one million a 1 a
year can he realized by the exportation of one arti- t'i
cle alone; we mean cooper stuff, and instance only
its consumption in the Island of Cuba. The great S
staples of all the West India Islands arc sugar and k
molasses, both of which, previous to being exported , c
are encased in wood, nine-tenths of which encase
ments, go from the United States; this trade has !
been monopolised by the eastern states, and a large j
profit is annually realized. The annual consumption ,
of wood for boxes, hogsheads, &c. in the Island of I
Cuba, amounts in value to four or five millions dol
lars. Presuming 1,000,000 of sugar boxes to cost
$10,000,000; 1,600,000 molasses and sugar hogs- j|i
heads, including hoops, cost, say $250 or $3,750,000 n
—nine-tenths of this amount goes from the United t
States, and yields to the owner of wood lands—the t
box and hogshead maker, the merchant or trader, and
the carrier. Presume that this Island of Cuba takes f
one-half of the quantity shipped from the United
States, and it gives to the whole export a trade of
over $8,600,000 a year—will any one tell us that, t
with all the local advantages of Baltimore, she can
not secure at least one-eighth of this trade? This,
then, alone gives the $ 1 ,000,000 extra circulation to
our *rade, and certainly for all other purposes for S
which wood is used $1,000,000 should he added I <
It is said that in the trade with the West Indies,
Baltimore cannot, with all her advantages, combat
with the northern cities, because she has no market
for the produce of the Islands; and hence, if she en
tered into it, she would be compelled to ship her re
turns, sugar and molasses, to the northern ports. In
order to remedy this, let there he refineries for sugar
and molasses built—one at the cost of SIOO,OOO
would soon pay for itself. In the New England states
there are about $5,000,000 invested in refineries, —
cannot one be sustained in Baltimore? or must she
lose a trade worth $ 1,000,000 a year, because
SIOO,OOO cannot be raised for a refinery?
We have thus, crudely to be sure, put our reflec
tions together, humbly hoping that they may arrest
the attention of our capitalists. We shall'pursue
the subject on another tuck at some future period.

Cincinnati Pork Trade. — The pork fatted atCin- j ,
cinnati. conies exclusively from Ohio, Indiana ami 5
Kentucky. The supplies from all these quarters, -
wore immense. Take this fact, on one road leading i
to Cincinnati from Indiana, 70,000 hogs (about) cross ! i
cd the Miamitown Bridge! There are other bridges £
over the Miami, on roads leading from Indiana.
For about two months, the passage of hogs up the | -
leading street from the Ohio river, seemed to he I
almost constant. So, also, the turnpikes coming in .i
from Ohio, indicate the same state of facts. S
That wc may have an idea of the capacity of these ;
States to increase the number of hogs brought to mar- i
ket, take the following statement. The first table I
contains the amount for 1848: i .
Hogs Corn, bush. 1 j
Ohio 2,099,746 33,668.144 I f
Kentucky 2,310,533 38,847,120 j
Indiana.. 1,623,608 28,155,887 j i
Total .6,033,837 101,677,131
In 1840, then, the farmers of these three .States, i
had six millions of hogs, and more than an hundred
millions bushels of Corn!! They could have fatted
two millions of these hogs, and sent them to market,
on forty millions of bushels of Corn!
In 1847, wc suppose this to be about the state of !
facts. Hogs. \ Corn, bush.
Ohio 2,500,000 50,000,000
Kentucky 2,500,000 45,000.000
Indiana 2,000,000 40,000,000
Total 7,000.000 125,000,000
There is no doubt that, in this year, these three
States might (if it were necessary) have fatted and
carried to market, three millions of hogs!! We sup- I
, pose that the hogs packed in these States, in the
t season of 1847-8 really amount to little over One
t million; but even this amount strikes the reader with
its magnitude.— Cin. Chron.
\ LEXINGTON, MISSOURI,
j ! In giving the statistics of Lexington, (Mo.) the
j Express , published in that town, states that 6700
! Hogs have been packed there since Nov. Ist.
| Lexington is located on the Missouri river, 330
miles above its mouth—commenced its growth iu
1839, and now has a population exceeding 2000 per
sons. Its exports the last year amounted to about
$250,000, embracing hemp, wheat, flour, dry hides,
bacon, pork, lard, Sic. Its imports amounted to
$200,000. Horses to the value of $20,000, and
oxen to the value $25,000 were purchased aud sent
from that point.
A detailed list of the vocations of its citizens shows
that almost every trade and profession, is there re
' presented.
i The. Pawn-Broker's Sign.— h is not probably,
' generally known how the sign of the three golden
balls, now used by that class ol' exchangers termed
i pawn-brokers, came to be so universally used by
j them. Its history is interesting: From the begin
: niiig ot the fourteenth century, the Italians engross
-1 ! ed a large portion of the commerce of Europe and 1
almost the entire trade of the Levant. Their mcr- j
i chants, commonly calk d Lombards, were enable J to
j carry their goods, consisting of silks, spic.-s, and j
Asiatic produce, into the Northern and Western '
kingdoms, by the privileges and exemptions granted J
them by sovereigns, and to b.-cme the chief bankers i
and money-dealers in the different Slates. The '
three balls, exhibited over pawn-brokers' shops, are
- the arms of Lombard)*, and have been retained as a
j sign ever since the Lombards were the principal
. money-dealers of Europe. The street in London in
: which the foreign: rs were settled, still retains the
name of Lombard street, and continues to be the
chief seat of banking establishments.
