New Orleans lj lower, Liverpool un changed, Memphis lyc lower. It shows that the mar ket had sevmu fluctuations, but at the conclusion was little changed from toe week before, and that change was In a downward direction. It b evident that the iioslUon of the cotton market Is less strong than It was, and this notwithstanding the fact that the Turkish dUBcultr appears to have lost Its power to act upon It, and participation of England In war Is regarded as out of the question. The Inimical In8uence, this time, is not without, but within the cottoa market, and consists In larger arrivals of cotton than had been looked for near Christmas, In Mew of the ac counts given bj the various ofnclal reports. On Fri day the Aweal, copied all the material portion of the Liverpool circular, of Smith, Edwards & Co., reviewing the mouth of Novemler. In that review ocrurs the ullowlng- '"A large irt of the strength of the market is owing to the reiterated statements from America about the shortness of the crop In the Mississippi valley. Notwithstanding the prodigious receipts, which are now 22U.OO0 bales ahecd ot last year, there Is no material Increase In the estimation of the crop. The natural deduction from these statemcnUlsacrop or 4.000.000 to 4.250,000; at the same time Uw scale ot receipts causes much hesitation to believe In such small figures, and many on this side are raising their Ideas ot crop from 4.250.000 to 4,500,000. It Is certain that another month or two will settle the question; If receipts hold on at their present rate till the end of the year, there will be few believers In a yield of less than 4.500,000 on this side of the Atlantic" Since these sentences were written receipts have Bhownno elimination, the total receipts at the ports this year being 2.227,732 bales, against 1,1150,720 bales at the same time la&t year, an In crease of 271.00i). That this should stagger the faith of the Liverpool people, and lead to losr prices andadecrjoseot orders. Is not as tonishing. The circular goes to say, "Yet It Is pos sible rve may see such a collajisa in January as to restore short estimates." Holders of cotton assert that the collapse anticipated will take place, for the present high ngurts of receipts are sustained by the almost unprecedented dry, hue picking season, but the very exhaustion of the fields by what Is now going Into the market, insures a aharpand sudden" fall orr In receipts at an early day. The bears object that this not the DrsL second or third time since the war that they hare heard the song of "sharp and sudden fall oiV'but It sever come true once, and they now prefer awaiting the coming "sharp and sudden" change to s'leculatlng on Its anticipation. We shall see how this turns out. but Is plain that the correct way Jut now to Judge of the probabilities of the market Is to watch the receipts. The New York Bulletin In Its last weekly review ot the cotton market, said "The crop problem has become the all-absorb-1 lng topic and while Liverpool Is not without some bearing at times. It would seem that the foreign po sition 15 more likely to follow than to lead our mar ket roraierlod,as the result of this month's re ceipts win prooaoiy go a long way lowara a suiuuun of the growth of cotton for the present season. We cannot discover that any radical change has taken place In the views or the general strength of the two opposing Interests upon toe vexed question. The run of arrivals at the ports have been of sufficient magnitude to encourage the bears, and In some cases give them quite a little advantage, while the further addition to the excess as compared with List year strengthens them in the belief that the falling off from week to week will have to bo much smaller thaa Is at all likely, in order to bring the crop down to a figure approxtmaUv j that claimed by their op ponents, while at the same time there will have to be considerable Increase In general consumptive de mand to make all things balance. The excess of supply received, as now shown, is met by the old argument, that the diminution, when It once sets In, will prove so rapid and conclusive as to quickly eradicate the idea of a crop of unmanageable pro portions, and there Is also a hoperul feeling regard ing a revival of a good and healthy consumptive trade after the tarn of the year. Certain of the lead ing operators. Indeed, who are on the 'bull' side of the house, assert and maintain their position 1 7 word and act with such a thoroughly confident ap pearance that we think they have made converts cf a portion of the wavering element, while others, who last week, under the heavy pressure of arrivals, were Inclined to beome deserters from the move ment for a rise, again think there may be 'some thing In If alter all, and are not adverse to remain ing owners of a little cotton. In short, the general temper Inclines to the buoyant side apparently, but there Is a lack of sulikiat decided .stlmulos Just now to make much headway."' The same paper re ported on Kridar: "Holders are Influenced to a less confldent tone by natural sympathy with options, and also respond more or less to the increasing sup piles and the absence of encouraging advices from abroad. On the demand there has been less call for speculative use, but otherwise the elements are much the same, exporters merely moving to meet freight engagements or some special orders, and itplnnew to satisfy pressing 'and Immediate wants. Yot future delivery there has baen a fair business, but a break along the entire line, and the tone throughout was heavy."

Yesterday morning there was evidence of the approach of the Christmas week, the grocery stores were actively engaged In filling orders. The produce market was rather quiet, owing to the ab sence of arrivals the river, being Irozed above, and the consequent small amount of merchandise offer ing on the market FUnr has been active all week and advancing, and Is now so mush higher than be fore that corn meal Is becoming stronger In conse quence, and corn Is advancing in price. The state of the river Is stiffening the price of allwestem com modities, as the railroads in that direction make their charges higher as the water falls lower and the Ice cets thicker. Cnal-oil Is looking up strongly; the New York Bulletin says: "Our petroleum market shows a tendency to considerable excitement and buojancy, with Increased bids from exporters failing to obtain much stock. The key to the position is to be found in the more favorable advices from Europe, very stimulating accounts from the "Creek" and the great scarcity of oil, with all the stocks under con trol of strong and determined refiners, who have placed their limits both for Immediate and future delivery at an extreme figure." Corn was In request and advanced, ' with sales of 52 and 177 sacks at 52c, and 130 at 53c; a load ot 300 or 350 bushels of choice white corn, In bulk, was held at 47c; In store, 55957.

The blue ribbon Is flying from the main peak. Give her a chance and she will do It again. We have left nothing. The river Is falling rapidly." Lawrence, of the Augusta Bulletin, has been feast ing on oysters, and then blames Champ Chamber lain, of the Hard Cash, about It Don't mind him, Champ; lie's giver, to such tricks. Here's what Lawrence said about you: "Oysters are good. It we didn't think so. we couldn't help paying our respects to John Chamberlain, of the Hard Casii, fora can of the luscious bivalves. He Is as popular and gener ous to his friends as the good boat he represents." Captain William Elliott and Clerk Saulsbury ar rived here Sunday evening on the Belle of Texas, on which boat they reshtpped tho Ella's trip. They en tered protest here yesterday. The laid consisted of 201 bales cotton, 228 sacks seed, 8 packages sun dries, 2 head of cattle, which Captain Elliott brought down from the Ella aground at the mouth of L'An gullle to the mouth of St Francis on a Hat They were out without fire or fire water two days and nights. There are yet 144 bales cotton and 300 sacks seed on the Ella. A card elsewhere states that both the Coahoma and Phil Allln are knocked out of time by the pre vailing difficulties of navigation, together with heavy business. The card states that the Coahoma will leave this evening for Friars Point and the bends, and get back on her regular day (Friday), making but two trips this week. The condition of the river will not allow scarcely any observance of schedules, and the commauders of the steamers mentioned will not jeopardize life nor property for the sake of adhering to particular days. i " How to save reshlngllng stop leaks effectually and cheaply In roofs of all kinds, or lay new roofs."

These would be a total loss, as I know of no gin on which they can be ginned; but by running through your "C. C. C" they are opened and separated In such a manner that I can, on my "Champion Gin," make a sample of cotton for which I am to-day offered lOVJc per pound, thus making what I consider a net prolit to nw of at least thirty dollixrs on every bale of cotton which I can so secure, for without the "C. C, C." It would be a total loss, while with Its assistance I exiect to make nearly a hundred bales. The profit resulting from the use of your "C. C. C." In such a case Is Immense, and no planter should, for this reason especially, be without one of them. Yours, etc. E. E. CLARKE. o 3lBitrni3, Tesn., December 2, 187(5. Messrs.

I found that by using your "C. C. C." these unopened bolU were put In a favorable condition for ginning on my "Champion Gins," producing a sample of cottton worth from 8c to 10c per pound. I believe so firmly In the value of Its operations on the bolls now left In the cotton fields that I would be glad to enter Into correspondence with any parties who have and wish to dispose of them, as I want all I can get of them.
