COTTON. Our review of the often market at the end of the last cominen-ial week quoted middling in New York at 12 l:H6c; it fell to 12)c; New Orleans quoted Vlc and fell to ll?4d; Ijverpxl quoted 6 ll-10d and felf to 6 9-lCd; Memphis quoted 12UC ani to 11 13-16d. This statement shows the week to have been a hard one in cotton. Friday was the most unfavorable day hitherto endured the whole seawn; everything went down everywhere. New York futures underwent extraordinary fluctuation?, and made extraordinary sales; one day' the largest that ever were made, 107,01") bal.-s; the next day 91,000 bales sales that will probably be a cause of trouble another da v. While prices were traveling down, receipts were lowering also, which shows that ut least some of the trouble in the New York market was owing to causes within its.-If. Liverpool, however, went down also, and here, it was probable, the market was affected by the fact becoming known that estimators cn this side are agreed on reckoning the cron at 4,500,000 bales; the weak state of the New Y'ork market, in the face of filling receipt, was doubtless another cause. The last weekly review in the New Y'ork Bulletin said: '"The attention of opera- j tor has become very closely concentrated upon the r'c-ipU of cotton at the ports, and the showing d.es not appear to have afforded a m-ts f.r much confidence in movements for ahijfherraugeof values. The arrivals of stock at the seaboard, and the indications of what may be expected to follow, as khown through thi movement a the interior towns, have certainly proven gratifying to the advocates of a largv crop, ami estimates have tended more toward tour and one-half million than for many weeks past, with some of the en thusiasts marking even a higher figure. The inquiry for actual supplies, in the meantime, ha U-en -low and careful; stocks here are full, shipi-ers show a cliariness about pur ch iiinif -hort noticf .' or options in any shape, and this adds ctill another feature of a character adverse to buoyancy. From abroad, the accounts hare proven somewhat conflict ing, but in Liverpool, evidently, as here, the feeling of operators are governed largely by such indications as are thought likely to point toward a solution of the crop problem, wita the 'bulls.' at present, in a slightly nervous , frame of mind. I'ak'-n as a whole, the present position may be said to be weak and unsettled. For future delivery the market has varied somewhat on the cable advices from abroad, but, in the main, the influences have come through the crop indications as hhown from day to day by the receipts at the ports. These have shown 'too much cotton, and the 'bulls' were mostly cn the losing side, values showing a lower range than Lv,t week, and the undertone throughout giving evidence of a lack of strength." The 2ew York liecord report that "frequent ex changes are being made in contracts; the fa vorite method is to turn October into A pril, as many people think all the money will be made In-fore the summer comes."' The some paper says that advices indicate larger re ceipts of cotton outside the United .States than had been expected. Three we-ks ago the Egyptian import was reckoned to be 0u, CMi bales below that of the preceding year, but higher prices are bringing receipts nearly up to List season. In India it is the some, as wiil be seen when the rai'ways there are re lieved from the pressure of c;trryinsr food where the famine prevails. Watts ic Co.'s last Liverpool circular enin plained of lare receipt which wer--auciny iiigln-r estimates to be made of the totjl crop. Watts & Co., however, say they look for it to be rather under than over4,400,0o0 bides. They have probably changed their estimate by this time, and it is probably that change that has been especially unfavorable to cotton at that market. Tky acknowledge, however, that there are dilii culties in Liverpool preventing increase of prices. The stock at Liverpool has increased with indications of running up to yoO.O'JO bales, against 127,000 on hand at the opening of February last year. Another diificulty is that spinners last week "held 2"3,OO0 bale?, or about as large a stock as at any tiiu- last year, or the year before; and unless Man chester should revive, of which we see but little prospect at present, they may, for some weeks to come, purchase too sparingly in this market to absorb such cotton as nmy be pressed for sale. Still another difficulty is tliat it is believed the acreage planted the coming spring will be considerably larger than last year, and in a great measure neu tralize the prospect of supplies next autumn What is perhaps the worst bftieulfy of all is that at .Manchester is Fullering irom a contin ued depression in all departments of busi ness, and there seems but little hope of anv change for the better. The reverse of this gloomy statement is made in the New York Record of the state of things at rail River, Massachusetts, "which presents a lively pic ture at present, and one altogether at vari ance with the gloomy exhibit made a few months ago, when the mills were stopped, the employes idle, and many of the foreign workmen returning home to England or Ger manv. The old stock of print goods on hand has been sold off, the spring trade creates a demand livelier than for some years, and every spindle is running at its full capacity." Ibis comes Irom the increased consump tion of our own manufacturers, and from their increased exportation. At a recent meeting 01 tha Manchester chamber 01 com merce the president said that "the exports of Manchester goods to the United States, which used to afford such an excellent market, are now nil, and that there is even a considera ble traoe in .Manchester itself, in cotton goods manufactured in America. There can be no reason why English capital shjuld continue to control the markets of the world, and our own country being so much nearer the cotton fields we ought, with cheap labor, to be able to win a name for our manufactures second to none." The Record states : "The imports of this country- fell between 1872 and 1876 from 604,400,000 to 1426,600,000. This is at the rate of 3014 per cent. ; our purchases of the cotton, woolen and worsted manufac tures 01 Lngland declined much more. Those of cotton were in 1872, 132,900,000 yards, and in 1S76 only 55,000,000 yards. In conclusion we copy the following from the New Y'ork Record, of Wednesday. It may prove useful to some of "je green" opera tors alluded to: "Some very strange develop ments occurred in the conducting of busi ness in futures for southern account during the last two days, and which, if properly understood, would open the eyes of many who have such implicit confidence in the parties to whom their orders are intrust ed. It is hardly fair that these misfortunes should form the nucleus of the wealth of those who are ever ready to profit by the mistakes of others, which they at a distance cannot so easily control, and it ought not to take very long to convince them that there can be no security in dealing with those who cannot resist the temptation of speculation whenever they see a sure thing, as it must necessarily have been when ho many houses clubbed together to sell their customers out and buy in the same contracts through dif ferent brokers for their own account." Receipts in Memphis during the official week aggregated 10,149 bales, against 10,54 bales the previous week, and 14,770 lales the corresponding week last season, the total receipts since hepteniber 1, ltfib, are o4o,t44 bales, against 392.232 bales at the correspond ing time last season, showing a decrease of 46,477 bales. I Shipments during the othcial week Aggre gated 6019 bales, against 12,619 bales tie previous week, and 10,826 bales the corre sponding week last season. Total shipments mce September 1st are 296,989 bales, against 326,12 bales the same time last year; a de crease ot 29,19d bales. Salea during the week were d900 bales, against 5000 bales the previous week. Of the 3900 bales sold this week, exporters took bales; spinners, 3650 bales; spec ulators, 250 bales. The total stock on hand was 02,20a bales, against 50,128 bales last week, and 68,711 bales at tins time last year. lhe following shows the course ot the Memphis market and the price of middling cotton from the opening of the season : 2 33 5P Si f -5 x - tc 3 J 1 9eo5l 222 1 575! 1742 4330i 7rt41 12rtll IrtrWOl 1W73W 21703 23330; 21703 218451 23415 j 27170i 80304! 1752 8!77 2000 llli del2; de2t; 11H7 34X1 7537 20101 HiXX 1255' 41731 3017 307i 5038 fl 0835 i 122HO 15212! 14H47 2012rtj 52184 21115 21117'2R41! 15132 344K5! 2250 11- 4850' lOOj 7450 lOVs 10100 IOI4 13200 IOI4 141O0 IOI4 201 H lOB 1830 Ills 170OO 114 11500 UJ4 21rtOO 11 3 ltV200 111 17701 1 lit, 17700 119s lrtrttM) 1 lit H850 114 15500 124 12100 12j 1230O' 124 14404) 12t3 1300 12 055O 12 50UO'12l 3'.H)0:114 Oct.8 OclO' Oc27i Oc23: Kovl 1 NolOl Nol7i No24 lions' lrt37I 223t!8! 234181 21704i 22802! 230581 1223tti45054i 12535 555771 17772 H15H3' 13754 17:4rtl 1378H 75183 1 13437 85454; filrtO 241rt!

Since the Mardi Gras impulse passed away, there has been some re-action, and the latter part of the week, and also yesterday, were very quiet. Yesterday was dull, for the weather was cold and unpleasant, and no boats arrived from north. Since 1 nday, the offerings were, therefore, small, and, in some cases, insufficient. Corn was especially wanted, while the stock on sale included only two or three lote, of which 150 sacks sold at 50c, while 270 sold, on Saturday afternoon, at 4c, and 310 sacks of ear corn at 45c; in store, 52(4 53c.

The last weekly Chicago circular of O. A. Ilenness Co. reported: "The demoraliza tion of the provision market noted in our last, continued With unabated fury most of the past week, culminating on the twentieth, the lowest prices of the season being reached on that day, with prices of most articles lower than at any time in five years past. Mess pork touched $13 97", lard 9.4-ic, shoulders 4Jjc. and short rib sides 7.60c, being $7 40 per barrel onpork, 3 3-10c on lard, 3Jc on shoulders, and 4JBc on short rib sides lower thau same date last year. These prices soon attracted the attention of consumers and dealers, and ord rs for cash property came in freely, as also orders from dealers for their actual wants in April and May. The largest orders for two months past were on the mar ket, reulting in heavy sales, and the whole trade felt that at last bottom was reached, and investments at current prices safe be yond peradvcnture. The market is now evi dently on the up turn, though we do not ex pect to see rapid advances without frequent backsets, but witbjmoderate and gradual ad vances the market will grow healthy and the product go into consump tion. The receipts of hogs have improved both in quantity and quality. LiUtl Utatenf TeUgratns. Market. Bec'pU 8ale. dnlreston Irreg'lir 933 1. New Orleans...

His many friends m the bend will be clad to welcome him back again. lhe Illinois, Captain James W. Gonsallis, is the regular packet for Vicksburg and all way landings. Sjhe will connect at Vicks burg with the Katie for New Orleans, and with packets tor lazoo river. Mr. Keese Reese, assisted by Jos. Speers and Dan Sulli van, are her clerks. Ralston and Gronauer, inspectors for this port, returned yesterday from Hailes Point, where they have been to inspect the new pro peller Argo. Her dimensions are 80 feet long, 20 beam, 3 feet hold, built at Dyers- burg, Tennessee. They also inspected the Dyersburg at that place. We learn by the officers of the Illinois that the tow boat John A. Wood, or last "Saturday, coming up the river with a tow of empty barges, broke a hog-chain on her starboard side, near Island 63, which let her wheel 1 down in the water. She was landed by the steamer Colorado at Island 63. New Orleans Times, of Sunday: "The sinking of the steamer Belle Rowland, at Swan Lake, near Fulton, in upper Red river, is another great calamity to our steamboat interests, for she was one of the best low water boats in the trade. She was owned by Captain W.T.Scovell and others, was valued at sixteen thousand dollars, and insured for ten thousand." A correspondent, writing from Friars Point on the twenty-third, and inclosing a subscrip tion for the Weekly Appeal, says: "I do not know when you will get the letter, as our mails have been very irregular of late, owing to the war between the Coahoma and White. They both reach this place just at daylight, and before anyone knows of it they are off again. With or without mails, passengers or freight, seems to make to make no difference to them. We have been put to much incon venience in many ways by the rivalry between these boats, business of every kind is inter fered with, and unless they become more ac commodating the people here will bulldoze them both and put another boat in the trade."
