of Tuesday, says: "The gold speculation was

from l'M to 105. There was some buying:
of pld to pay for the new4J percent, bonds,
which have been taken with more freedom
since the settlement of the 1'residential ques
tion. The closing- up of 'short' accounts also
utrentfthened the market for a time." In lo
cal matters no transactions were reported.
There were some inquiries about Memphis
bonds, balances, coupons and scrips.

Railroad )onds were generally steady. North
western consolidated gold coupons advanced
to 90?4'; Chicago, Hurlington and (isiini-y ?s
sold nn to 114. Stocks at the opening were
irregular, but before the firt call there was a
decline of per cent, with a subsequent
recovery. Prices continued firm until shortly
before the cloe when a reaction set in and
pricet declined ii'ff'i per csnt. in the general
list from the highest point of the day. The
greatest decline was in the cod stocks and
some ot the tnink line shares. The coro
ner's verdict in the Ashtabula disaster caused
considerable sales of Lake Shore. The
strength of New York Central early in the
day was due to the declaration of the usual
2 per cent, quarterly dividend. The weak
ness in coal stocks was owing to rumors that
coal was selling lower at the east, and
the statement that the supply was likely to
be increased by some arrangement of the
Lehigh and Wilkesbarre company. C hicago,
Burlington and CJuincy was exceptionally
strong. Transactions aggregated 140,0X)

The cotton market was yesterday dull and
depressed. Liverpool was lower, so was New
.York and New Orleans, and the New Orleans
receipt was over 10,000 bales. All this gave
the last day of the commercial week a gloomy
character, and the demand in our market was
confined to spinners' orders, which were not
large. Quotations were revised and lowered;
at the new prices the market closed weak.
The New York Bulletin, of Tuesday, report
ed: "The general tone of the market is
stronger. For spots there has been a very fair
demand, the most noticeable feature of which
is an increased movement on foreign account.
As a rule, shippers have not openly shown
any great amount of interest, and -the move
ment for export seemed to excite a little sur
prise among the trade, but the fact that such
purchases had been made contributed some
what toward infusing a better feeling. Spin
ners have continued as before, to fill invoices
to the extent of known wants and no more.
