fact in connection with the trade in this article

According to the Postmaster General's report
the actual expenditures of his department dur
L.g the pDeast fiscal year was s2,322,504 24, which
were 44L,885 8m more than those of the preceding
year, and $s,9ss,488 55 less than the estimates
therefor. The total receipts for the year were
, 1,119,12 2t less than those of the preceding
ear'. and l1,196,618 54 less than the estimates
Sherefor. The decrease is largely in the item
,4 offiol~apeatage stamps, the amount derived
'* s which during the last fiscal year was only
tgY..To0 cr, while in the previous year it was
;t,8Z.5e9 48. Excluding official postage stamps
and money order receipts from both fiscal
years, the reduction in ordinary receipts was
only $188,592 29, or about three-fifths of one per
cent.' According to the terms of the act making
theappropriation, the official postage stamps
used by the Postoffioe Department during the
fiscal year, and amounting to s$e6,095 50. do not

The government of Guadaloupe offers the
sum of $90,000 to the inventor of a new process
of extraction of juice of sugar cane or of sugar
tabri cgon, this prize to be given to whoever
btai~n from the cane a yield of 14 per cent
of sugar, and the cost of application of the
seW process not to exceed forty per cent of the
value realized. The cane raised at Gaadaloupe
contaias 18 per cent of suar, and, hitherto, a
percentage of 9.4, on an average, has resulted
from the ordinary factory machinery. Recent
ly M. Dueharsaing'invented an imbibition pro
tess, bywhich, it appears, the yield is increased
from 9.4 to nearly 12 per cent; in fact, according
to the claim of the inventor, the advantage de
rived from his process is a gaia in the per
eentage of a yield of 2.8a. At any rate. M. Du
eharsaing's invention was deemed sufficiently
'Important to warrant the awarding to him of a
-90,000 price. The present premium, therefore,
Is a second one, and it calls for a still further
improvement to be made. The experiments
on at least 660o,oo pounds of cane, are to be con

Two vessels arrived here yesterday from
.Ldverpool with cargoes of salt, viz: The ship
Anale Gondie, with 2163 sacks, and the ship
Choice, with 4900 sacks. If, in the prospective
reviasionof the tariff, the duty on salt, which is
-ndeniably an article of necessity, should be
ismoved, such a measure would be of incalcu
l.ble benefit to New Orleans and to the greater
portion of the West. Instead of ships coming
here from foreign ports ladened with worthless
ballast, they would bring to our port full car
oees of salt, as they did in the good old ante
helium times, which would be sent up the river
to supply the demands of our pork packing
friends of the West.
inhe New York and Kanawha Salt Works are
having altogether too much protection, and if
our iT estern -riends would only look atthis
subject with a practical, impartial eye, they
would speedily discover that this onerous duty
on imported salt is senseless, and injurious to
the common interests of the country. We
would respectfully direct the attention of our
immediate representatives in Congress to this
matter reminding them that while it may seem
to be a small and insignificant seasoning to
their daily food, it is in the aggregate one of the
most important articles in the domestic econo
my of the nation. Let them put their faces in
the right direction in the persuance of this
much needed reform, and never look backward.
Remember Lot's wifel
Laws ot Stock Fluctuations.
Robert Glffen, in his new work on "Stock Ex
change Securities," which is highly commended
by the London Timnes and Spectator. brings for
ward some "laws" controlling the fluctuations
of stocks. Dull or hard times push up the
prices of first-class etocks; investment stocks
tend to fall when the business improves and the
demand for capital increases: prices move in
cycles, rising for a period and then falling for
a period; under the competition of capital for
iaveneates, prices of first-class stocks tend to
word a permanently higher level; interest tends
to lepUaa; the very best securities, like govern
mentbonds. rise during a stock panic. These
ýaea of the recurrendes Mr. Giffen has ob
aer in the movements of long periods of
ears, and~rhih*ie supports by a good deal of
argumeuet ned ideneea.

Friday ECvening. Dee. 7. 1817.
GENERAL REMARKS-The weather was
bright and cool, all that could be desired for
out-door business.
The general market continues dull, remarka
bly and oppressively so, considering the time
of the year. December shows no improvement
over November, and all the bright visions we
have indulged in of a business re-awakening
have thus far proved to be but " idle dreams."
But we are content to wait a little longer for the
good time that has been so long coming.
In our great fleecy staple there has been only
a fair business, the sales footing up 9600 bales.
The market was strong throughout the day, the
better ounlities exhibiting an improvement of
4c. but there was no perceptible change in
average lists from yesterday's quotations.
During the week there has been an advance
of 16c in the price of lower grades of cotton and
34e in Low Middlings and the higher grades.
During the same period New York reports
show an improvement in that market of 22 to 24
points in futures, while Liverpool quotations
are 1-16d higher than last Friday.
The receipts of cotton at this port during the
week amount to 53,201 bales, against A4,532 for
the same week last year: net receipts at this
port since September 1, 446,850 bales, against
493.751 for the same time last year.
The supply of flour is large, and the general
tone of the market is dull and easy. Home
round sales were made, holders, in some in
stances, letting go their grip for the nonce and
making slight concessions to the demands of
For pork the ruling prices are about the same
as those of last week. There is a firm feeling
in this article, and receivers arc isking an ad
vance of 25 cents on yesterday's prices.
The receipts of sugar continue small, only 612
hhds coming in to-day; sales r5ic. The market
is steady and firm. Stock in sheds 103o, against
3759 same time last year.
For particulars of markets see regular report.
COTTON -The market to-day opened under
influences that stffened up holders. Liverpool
was firm and futures at New York were better,
and added to these there was a good demand
and, during the early part of the day, a small
supply in the offerings. As was to be expected
under these circumstances, factors were decid
edly stringent. so much so as to materially
check the movement. Later on factors uncov
ered their samples more freely, and a fair busi
ness was done, footing sales to the number of
o00 bales. The market was strong throughout,
staple kinds readily commanding an improve
ment of .)o, but average lists showing no
change from yesterday's quotations.
In a review of the week's business there is
shown an advance of 'bc in the price of the low
grades and kYe on Low Middling and the higher
grades. The changes at New York during the
week show an improvement on futures of 220(24
points. Liverpool is i-1td higher than last
Friday, and Havre I franc on spots and 2 francs
higher on cottons afloat.

Capt. Kinney wants it understood by the New
Orleans people that the Kate is not going into
the Ouachita, but will enter Red river to stay.
Capt. Kinney will leave in a few days by rail for
New Orleans.
Capt Jo Kinney, Sr., says that when people
talk about old boats there are sometimes one or
two they forget about. He had the Robert Ful
ton built at Madison, Ind., in 1839 for the St.
Louis and Pittsburg trade, but she drew four
feet light, and that wasRAto much for the trade.
She was a side-wheeler of 250 tons, single en
gine, and very fast. He took her to New r
leans and ran her two trios per week from
there to Bayou Sara. the first boat that ever
made two trips per week In the trade. She car
ried the mail and was in a fight all the time
with the Brilliant and Clipper No. 1. whose
masters were Jesse Hart and Mona. Laurent.
He sold the Fulton. and he thinks she was taken
to Mobile.
The Eckert had, up to Sunday evening, taken
out of the Tolle a lot of meat and meal and 300
bbls of flour. Several of the bulkheaded sec
tions were found to be dry and secure, the grain
having protected the decks from the fire.
A dispatch of the Ath. from Evansville to the
Commercial, says:
The Golden Rule lay here all day taking
freight, and is now at the elevator taking a
large lot of corn, and is drawing over 7 feet.
She was visited by hundreds of gentlemen and
ladies, and all were enthusiastic in their ex
pressions of admiration. Capt. O. P. Shinkle
received a most cordial welcome and the hearty
congra'ulations of many old steamboatmen. He
is highly delighted with the boat, and her pilots
say she handles splendidly and runs sur
prisingly fast. The Rule added considerable
stock here and gets a lot at Henderson.
