Liverpool, which almost gov urns the cotton market ju-t now, was lower on up'auds. New York was also lower. The tiled on cur market was, of course, extrnusly de ressiistr. There was a fcharp inquiry in the morning, in the expectation that some holders would become suflie'ently alarmed to give way in prices so far that cheap lots could be picked up, and that orders on low limits might ba got In. There was some giv ing way in lowor grade?, but the small amount of sales snows that there was not, any general disposition to make concessions, although there was much eagemcs3 to pell cottons that are least sought for. The more favorite samples were not to be found on the tables. Holders feel sure the bottom has been tjuched now. American cottons ar5 comp: ting with Est Indian, and they will not let desirable hits go for less than what they conceive to be their value. The followiig is of interest: "The agent who went to Manchester, England, to sell American cotton goods for the manufacturers of Fall River, has bad a greater eu;cs than was antici pated.

As goos are not now offered until the close of 'cbaage, at eleven o'clock.ptraons really having busiii(8i must congregate there, which makes the appearance of 'change a gojd thermometer of tbe condition of general trade. Meeting aa early as ten o'clock does not allow merchants oppor tunity to see their morning letters before attending 'change, but the time will ba changed in a few days to one hour later, a change by which, it is believed, the chambtr will be bentfittd. Corn yes terday wan depressed, and 627sacks sold at 39c Oats are not lively although great efforts have been made to improve the market for them ; 100 sacks sold at 42c, and 100 sacks at a price whose slenderness was hidden under the gui6e of "private terms." If there is any thing sure to damage price3.it is sales on "private term," rs goad evidence has recenty shown in the pstato market. The bast way to run the price of any aiticJe down, is to buy a lot or two of it and say they were got on "private terms." That eats people asking whether it would not be better "to stand from un der;" when that is done the buyer can lay in a stock to advantage. Those who were not aware of the utility of this lit tle scheme will ba abl", on some future occasion, to tell which tnimble tho pea la under. Bran la very weak, it has been selling down to $13 50 for a week, but yesterdsy 2V) sacks were taken at "private term&" bad for bran. Hay wns stagnant; prairie is quoted at $3 and timothy at $20, nominally. Cornmeal was confined to two dealers, a third hav ing been bought out on Tuesday at $2 20; some lots sold at $2 25, but later $2 30 was insisted upon and maintained, sales being made at that rate. Potatoes remain very low, but the conviction is very strong that they "have touched bottom:" 12C0 barrels western russets sold at $1 02, which is a slight advance; peerless were offered at $1 35. Tbe general market was exces sively quiet Many persons in the sur rounding country are putting off their business in town until Mardi Graf, when they must be present. Eggs were in very moderate demand, notwithtand ing their very low price; sales were at 1213c. with small packages of fresh at 14c Chickens were very coatee, but the demand was not very pressing; some mixeu sold at $3 75, and fine hens at $5 Geese were few, and brought $7 50 a dozen.

Provisions are reported as follows in Henness & Co.'s Chicago Circular of Friday last: "Prices were temporarily easier on Tuesday, owing to more liber al receipts of bogs, but tbe depression was but momentary, and Bince then values have steadily advanced. Out side orders, though not as heavy as the week previous, have been quite numerous, while 'shorts,' local and others, have been covering freely. The arrivals and condition of hogs have greatly disappointed those operators who have heretofore advocated lower prices for product. Receipts for the week were some 3100 less than carre eponding one of las year, and qaallty which, up to within seven days, had been fine, now reported roarer daily This feature of poor quality indicate", if c ursa, a dc-p'etion of hogs, and has done much toward shaping the course of our market this week. Trading lias been large In all the speculative articles, and the sales of meats for future delivery have been the heaviest since opening of theeeason. Lard, which had bein drag ging of late, took a sudden upturn yes terday, caused, principally, by the poorer condition of bogs."
