' K A complete 'rererstrt of form waswUneuedln 1';' Bit. to-day' stookimatket In contrast with tho .ren- F" Hi cr' features of yesterday, except In respect to I IS!' activity. In the place of tho henlt&tlne And if S? Weak tone of tho market yesterday, the trading 'ii I to-dar after the Initial dealings developed r jBV,' firmness which, with the course of the business ' I: III icetlon, oxtended Into positive buoyancy. ' iSr This was the more noteworthy In that, ohlefly ; j ow Ins to the very extent of the- general rise In - Wtt- tn0 market, commission houses are assuming i WlV 'n ultra-conservative attitude and aro qulok to t H sen In every temporary reaction In prices the 1H culmination of tho upward movoment and Mr to so advlso their customers. The funda- Bfi mental influonoo In to-day's recovery In Wf the market was unquestionably furnished ( Isfie" D '" orly evldenoe that there would i np, be sji abundant supply of money offor- I' log for tho' use of all houses of Rood credit. ! H JU anatter of faotthe rates for money other i III tiiKa i" ior c" loans have shown no altera I 'IBIg ' Hon throughout the week, and the slight Bit advanco oxacted by money lenders for domand I m , aooommodntlon was no more than was to have ' V ft btn oxpected at this period of tho year. Tho i j A axtremo fiirure at whloh money loaned on call E I i f to-da)rwaji4 poreeni, and most of theborrow- I I '' Ing was affo(tted undor that figure.

'' iBi; In tlle lnlt'al doallngs yesterday's unsettled ' W IS tons was oontlnuod for a short time, but. as i f jE noted, .tho market soon developed strength . f Bl d advanoed steadily up to the close, whon .i fB rormany issues the best figures of tho day woro IB recorded. Interest In tho market was re- '"'' Imf narkablrolt diversified and distributed. The 1 ,,fe; $? Granger shares. In noteworthy advances, were if IHr'1 e 'ader8 ?' tne railway list In respeot to ao- ' ffM1 tlvlty, although moro pronounced gains were feL il''B'' cored elsewhere, notably In tho anthracite Hill ooal Btock, Tll advances already made In a ,' i ' 1 1 anthracite ooal at various points and Indicated j,-. M at otliors with the beginning of tho nowvoar i ' f a : have been, construed as meaning that tho man- f'-p Sij bgements of these companies havo hit upon is Ww some plan of 'harmonious operation by which ' fill" this groat Industry will be enabled to partlcl- j' I Its i pate In the general prosperity of the country of '$S Jl3 Which It has heretofore had almost no share at ME! pjL Asldo from Investment considerations there ' f." Kv Was no partloular news bearing upon the fnRj Granger shares, nor very speoiflcally upon lffi other quarters of tho market. Tho Industrial ' '' X Stooks furnished a largo quota of tho total deal , H Jngs of. tho day, with Sugar Iloflnlng, tho Fed s' I WL en 'eo1 tnarea an International Papjr Issues ' 't Wt- oonsplbuously strong. Tho advanoo In Sugar ' rh, K BeOntng was apparently the result of one of ' 'jSr. those moves against an obstinate short ac ' L -i count with which the Btroct has become ' ; cK; familiar. Tho stock again commanded a pre- (;' B4 tnlum In tho loan market, a olroumstance &B which can always bo made effective against t 9vF short Intorest. London houses traded ac- , SS ,. tivelr on both sides of the local markot and on 1 P Im ' balance wero buyers of a small amount of varl- K IV onB lssuos. chleQv of the Erie and Reading .' . f, ;- shares.

The spot markets at the South were acme and firm, reports from the dry goods district were encouraging and print cloth, wore rinn. Liberal receipts and favorable weather at the South had no effect.

There Is absulutclyno doubt that a general killing frost occurred throughout this district on Oct 27; the quantity of tltigedand stained (cotton that lias already come to market prove, this. It la a difficult matter to state accurately the amount of cotton yet to bo picked In tbe fields lu this sec tion. Veareaati.fled.howeer, that there la more than known befors at this time of tho year. Some loss undoubtedly occurs through loug exposure of open cotton in tbe Held.. Were It not so, we would believe In a larger figuro than 11,500,000. At tbla time last year very few believed the crop would ext eed 10,500,001), the majority Influenced by reports that a large quantity ot cotton otlll unpickod throughout the Mls.isalppl Vslley would never be gsthered. In this seitlon It rslned more than halt the month of December. It ha. yet lo be demonstrated that's farmer will be foolish enough to bale ungathered hi. crop, or a portion, on which all expen.i.., except co.t of picking and ginning, leas value of feed, hsve been Incurred. Whenever prices aro low we hear of tbe "abandonment theory," but Ihe pilccs now being realtied by the farmer average higher than this time last yesr. It la quits likely that Interior towna do not hold any mors cot ton, but probably lea., than thia date a year ago. but every one admits tbatlhere Is undoubtedly more in the fields.
