The cotton jiakket yesterday was
an exa t repetition, inalmo3t every fea-
tcie, cf the two days preceding. There
wa3a r a .li inquiry, but the offtrings
were not wholly to the satisfaction cf
mauy of the buyers, and the buyerj also
thinu. iu view of the recent general as-
prrt of tue cotton market, that holders
should make some c jnccsjlons. Fioods
nnd rnlns concur, however, to keep hold
ers et IT iu their views, looking forward,
as they do, to the effect of the high
water b;iug forced upon tho attention of
Liverpool by a wl'lrg cli in receipis
The markeu were geueially quiet and
steady, bat New Orleans again declined
f. The threatenlug condition of Euro
pean monetary affair3, as explained
ubjve in thearticleon financial matters,
is ca'.CLla'ed to cause some anxiety as to
ttw effect severe changes in tho prices of
sucks, and a collapse of the London
s'ock market, may pesdbly have on
the demand for cotton. The new x oru
JiullilM cf Tuesday, reports: "The con
dition of the contract market checked
denjand for speculative account, while
from ext. r.rtera there was no direct call
f r cample lots', as they were enabled to
obtain euch uupplits as required from the
tfferiug of short notiefs and at a lower
range of C03t "We find mar.y
ef the trade objecting eomewhat to
a general sL-ad ng, and averting
t .at not only are good even-run-m.g.its
impcsdble to reach at any
mug low r, Lut that buyers are willing
to pay full as much as bef re for really
nt'ractive stock. The scare in regard to
tup oveillw seems to have entirely
parsed away, as the late accounts indi
cate no great damage to cotton. Opera
tors are evidently a little mixed at the
moment in regard to the proper policy,
aad with no e'ear proepects iu regard to
the raiurc a cfcutitus spirit guides all
mw( meats, and' with a large number
cf Uk trade the disposition favors move
ments fjr a quick turn rather than
haaJd-'KCiiitracU for protracted hold
ing aud dubious chances of larger

quotations were of 59c for corn; mixed
oats 41c. bran $14, hay $10Si20. Corn-
meal had no demand and holders
quoted $2 35, but it is averted that esl?s
have been made a? low, at least, as

Intiou on the stock exchange opened
quietly, and subsequently a firmer tone
prevailed, but after the first board the
market became greatly depressed, anu
there wai a pressure to sell shares of
some of the trunk line', notably Michi
gan Csntr&l and Lake Shore, and finally
the whole list cave way in sympathy.
The occasion of this depression in rail
way shares was the meeting or promi
nent railroad officials at Chicago, which
resulted in a reduction iu rates on east-waid-bound
freight. On the stock ex
change this was accepted as meaning
another railroad war, and hence the
bearish feeling which prevailed. The
greatest decline wts in Michigan Cen
tral, which dropped from 53 to 56.
Lake Shore followed, with a decline
from 5SI to56J. Erie was heavy, and
declined from IS to 16 J, an additional
.ciluence against this stock being a de
cline at London and a rumor that the
Dundee committee bad made an unfa
