Moseby, CQt .t&Co : "As predic.ed in our cir i MoT Isst month, cotton haa ruled ow, and j rices have continued to de cline, m view of existing lads, how ever, it could scarcely have b?en otlier. "wise. Freights have been bo high, that eijwriera anu ouy r for eastern account Have been forced to reduce uieir limit'.

The demand has un questionably been good, but at prices that, except for tbe very best grades, were ruinous tebe planter No decline can last always, bowevor, and we think that prices have about touched bottom, or so nearly so, that li wouid be unwise to bae any oprration upon a ttill further deeiire. Indeed, the whole aspect ff iiftaira ro far aa the crop la eonewned, Jiave mate riatiy changed dirus-; tbo tast three "weeks. The weather for tJiis season of the year hss been unpreeedeatly bad, and picking operations, which earlier in the fall were retarded by gcaeral aick- ajeas uiruuguuut iue country, nave neen etill further restricted by the constant ralnr.

To our friends we say sell on every active mar ket; bjcause the expense of carrying will probably cancel any advance that may occur; but do not forco your cotton off on dull days in anticipation of a still further decline. And now, a word to our merchant friend3 who buy: beware of dusty cotton stain and leaf do not make so much difference but we have now on hand a large stock of dusty cot ton, which Is daily increasing, and which ia utterly neglected except at ex treme low prices. Bright and medium grades may advance they probably will but low dusty cotton must surely go lower." Receipts in Memphis during the week ending Friday aggregated 23,465 bales, against 21.4S5 bales the previous week, and 20,240 bales the corresponding week last season. The total receipts eince September 1, 1875, are 180,876 bales, against 148,352 at the corresponding time la?teeaaon, showing an increase of 32,524 bales.

Csrn was lifeless yesterday, no i:oat having arrived from up the river for the past two days there was little otTeiing; an offer of 45c for ear corn in sacks was made, and the offerer expect ed his proposition would be accepted. Oats were without transactions; they wre offering at 4445c. Bran was .lTrina; at $17 75, but we heard of no "site. Jlayin very dull for common qual ities; some fair bright mixed sold at$12. Cornmcal was again very quiet at $2 35. Eggs were quiet and steady at 2627c. Butter is tame and unchanged. Chickens ollering on the market are generally small, and they are not wanted; dealers have to accept $z a dozen lor them, and some poor, shivering chicks brought as little as $1 50; for.fr.t, Imro bens $1 and $4 50 can be bad, and such eo'l well. Ducks bring generally S3 504, and geeee $5 506. Turkeys, liko cnickens, are neglected when nmall; fine and large will bring as high as $18; drifted turkeys, when fi ie, aie readily taken. Apple have nochango of price; some cuoicebele flowers brought $5 a barrel. Cabbage has been scarce, tu: some fine and large arrived yectsrday, which sold for $St0 for a hundred head. Potatoes generally remain weak, except that ther j is more firmness in early r S3, on ace U2t of a better inquiry; (lnio river soli, in store, down to $1 40 a larrel. Onions are very heavy, and commou in saiks can be had low; for good $1 902 are paid. JVortstoni are in increasing de matid, Lut prices are drooping, as will be seen by referring to the tables be low. The Cincinnati Enquirer of Thursday says: "The market is decided ly dull and heavy, with prices ruling a little lower on most articles, and not much dip. s tion to buy at the decline." The St. Liouls Globe of Saturday re poit: "The day was only a quiet fol loA irin the path of a long line of sad dene i predecessors. Orders ecarce and bueinees Ugh'. At tire stock-yards the bog rere all gobbled at about Thurs days prices. In nearly all the offerings tha feeliug was dull and lower." Tae December Chicago Provision Circular of MesM. Eggleston , ITennees & Co., ssya that during tho month the weak ness of the market has been more fully ueveiopej, anu meats were on jWgc, and decidedly dull at the decline. ''For eign orders in meats have generally been at reduced limits, while southern inquiry : small compared with previous weekt. Packers, In view of the marked falling oil in this demand, have turned their attention the past few days to making meed pork, and we look for an lncrea?o Iu ou stock of that article, which has beeu meager thus far.
