INAKCIS AND TEADE.
Financial news was not a commod
ity ta be obtained In Madison street
yesterday. The day was a holiday at
some of the most important busi
ness centers, no business telegrams
were arriving, and the consequence
was Memphis bankers and merchants
might as well have made holiday loo.
Thedu.ln&is was extreme. The west
ern papers a psar inclined to take a
brighter view of things now spring is at
hand and the road j are becoming passa
ble. The Chicago Tribune says it is es
timated that at least 200.000 head of cat
tle in the country is' awaiting opportu
nity to get to market, adding: "These
aro worth $12,000,000; and that earn
will be dlitr.buted through the west In
the nexts'xty days. This 13 but one item.
There is in addition, a large amount of
farm produce that will soon be forward
ed, and which will ba replaced by mll
1.3ns of money." The St. Louis Olobe
states: "The growing wheat is in splen
did condition and torwardness, which
enccuragea the farmer to renewed exer
tion, with a view of fctlll farther en
lar jicg his harvest yield In the com
ing fall." This is good news,
arid we s and sadly in need of some
thiDg to brighten us up, and we are by
no means alone in complaining In a
recent financial article, the London
ZtrneBatd: "Such com.lte stagnation
as u jw prevail 4 in the money market
has net teen witnesssd fur a very long
time, backers being at a kss to know in
which direc lon to f eefc employment for
t -.elr urplm balanres " The New York
T.nic observes: ' Stagnation In business
fesxs as general on the other side of the
At'anti; as on this, while both in Eng
land and the United States money la as
rl sty as any icilatlonUt could desire."
Te New York Journal of Commerce,
of Vcine"iay, bald: "Money ou call
c!oed at 3J par cent., loaned up to 6,
and the bnlk of the bcalnes3 was done
at the lut named figure. It Is now
ths"gat prcbible that the average rate
f::r the summer will be about 4 per cent.
Oae of the reasons for thin op niou is
tuat many of the country banks have

The cotton market yesterday was
a term aim oat without ubatance. The
day was flae and favorable for buiinecs,
but in other citiea nothing was doinir.
the usual observance of Good Friday
prevented that, and here no telegrams
were received. In their absence noth
ing of moment was doimr. nnd sale3 of
4W uaies 10 spinners camnrised the
whole. The New York Bulletin, of
Wednesday, reported: "Tuo demand
from exporters has been limited, and
they appear ts have bandied eo sleek.
A number are watching matters and
seem somewhat Interested, but aik too
many favors on price and quality to be
met by holders. From spinners the call
inay be noted as about a ateady one,
with no specially new featuie. The
grades required for this outlet are nnt
plenty, and are so situated ts to ba
under very good control, while holders
are looking for the full rates of tho hour
and In some cases a little more. On
contracts a further decline cf about
1 16c was made from thecloalnsr rat nf
yesterday, with a continuation of the
previously noted feverish aud uncertain
tone. So lar as we can discover, theie was
no positively newinfluencj-anfadeflldpd
caaracter, and the marked gave way, as
bifjre, because the 'b-jils' had little or
notning to oiler o-. hoir ot.ionf tvm
question. At the opening the drop was
about to the PM extent of the decline, as
above norj under the foreign accounts,
and ' .i. iij 1 r 1

w ich there was a reaction. Then Llv
erpool came again weak on arrivals, and
uacK went prices nere, to oe loiioweu oy
a fair amount of bidding, and another
slight recovery, the market finally
closing steady at say l-32o under yes
terday." Quotations at the Memphis
cotton exchange were as folio we:

The produce exchange showed
more signs of business yesterday, the
weather being favorable, but at the best
only a dull day was the result. Corn
was taken with some approach toward
spirit, and the cent advance of tho pre
ceding day was again obtained; sales
amounted to 300 sacks at 4lc. Tue St.
Louis Republican of Thursday saya corn
wai dull there, buyers standing oil' cash
delivery notably stagnant at 1J3
lower, options shading down, and adds:
" There was really a collapse in cash
prices, more manifest toward the close
of call." The Chigago Tribune of
"Wednesday reports offerings of corn
large in proportion to the demand, caus
ing weaknes?. Oati are offering at 41o
for mixed, but there is no demand for
them. The St. Louis Republican says
that neither buyers nor sellers take any
interest in the market. The Chicago
Tribune reports oata lower, with liberal
offerings aud a light inquiry. Bran ap
peared to excite more attention; the re
mainder of a lot in second-band sack?,
amounting to 1000 sacks, was closed out
at $13 50; for some fresh in new sacks
$14 25 was offered. Corn bran is scarce,
50 sacks sold at $14 25. Hay was in pass
able request with sales ot 100 bales at
$10, common; 60 bales of fair up to
choice at $17 60 round. Cornmeal was
stagnant at $2 30. The St. Louis Re
publican, of Thursday, reports of it:
"Firmer; good demand. Sales of 700
bbb city at $2 252 30, delivered." Cal
bage was in fair demand at $48, ac
cording to quality and freshnese. Pjfa
iocs are too dull for report at 50c a barrel
for russets, $1 10 for peachblows. No
new potatoes offering. The overfl jw will
greatly restrict the amount of new pota
toes this season, while the very low pries
of old ones Xmi off their chances for
"fancy" figures. The St. Louis Repub
lican says the supply of potatoes mere
Is large, with a market only for choice;
all kinds lower. Eggs were in good
supply, but at higher rates, quoting 15
ICo; 15o was the prevalent price; a lot of
14 boxes eold at 14c St. Louis papers
of Thursday report eggs higher and in
better demand at 12Jc in lots. Butler
remains scarce at 2323 for country
and medium; choice medium, 3636;;
choice, 37(3)363. St. Louis papers repoit
butter in liberal receipt, dull, lower and
weak at good to choice roll, 2025;:
packed common to good and
lrime, 1420c to 25o; choice and
s lections, rne Cincinnati
Enquirer, of Wednesday, says
the receipts were ab ive wants and mar
ket tending downward at 1820c for
common; medium, 2325c; choice, 26
2Sc; prime to choice Western reserve,
2830c. Chickens were very scarce at
from $3 25 for roosters to $1 75 for good
mixed; no hens offering. St. Louis
Thursday's papers say live chickens are
coming in freely there, and were dull
cocks at $2 252 50; mixed, $2 75;
hens, $33 25 Turkeys nominal at 9
12; not wanted. Poultry othsr than
chickens were absent except some gan
ders at $55 50, and geese at $77 50
Hoa nroaucts are nun. Tbe uu Ijouis
Republican, of Tnuisday, eaya the mar
ket there is discouraging, in consequence
of the marked decrease In volume of or
der and jobbing trade, an entire absence
of speculative demand, and a conse
quent disposition on tho part of a portion
of the dealers toward concessions, with
a view, if possible, of stimulating the
movement. Those who are holding tho
bulk of stock do not evince any anxiety
in regard to the situation, believing, ap-
Earently, that there is a future in which
Igher values and certain profits aro
temporarily hid from the ken of
tbo doubting Thomases. The Cincinnati
Enquirer of the same day reports little
demand; tbe market closed dull and
easier, but without pressure to tell. The
Chicago Tribune says hog products were
leas active and easier, in sympathy with
hogs, which were quotel 12; per 100
pounds lower. The advice) from other
poina were not very favorable to hold
ers, but tbe short interest in lard took
hold rather freely at the reported de
cline, while other descriptions dragged
under a very light demand. The re
ceipts of hogs are larger than
was expected at this season.
Hides were again lower; light weights
in no demand. Flint hides, 1213e;
dry salted, 9llc; green salted, 57c;
