This is due, as indicated, mainly to the increased ease and confidence in our mone tary oirolcs -which has enabled holders to withdraw muchof the cotton on sale, thus re ducing the offerings very considerably, at a perloa'wban the demand tor similar reasons was more active, and when at the same time the London money market was also Improv ing so decidedly and sending up the cotton quotations on that side.

If so our packers are not safe In loading up with pro duct at p-esect prices, for a paulc Is liable to overtake speculators and suddenly crowd the market with meat, driving price ns much too loir dhv had been too hleh. There is no export demand for meat at present prices, and the Chicago packers are shrewd enough to workoffrhefrorodnetasracldly as they can. They perceive, as well as any one, that no 5 acker can live under ayear's supply of pro net laid in at present pricesof hogs, and they are passing the hog over to be held by the eastern simpletons who furnish the money." The following from the Chicago Tribune of the first, Is in the same strain: "l'rovlslons are active, except in the article of meats, and lower all round.
