The early decline in the general hut v.-a eaus-l by the continued reports mre ' gard to a railroad war, itbein rumored in th-J x jhane tiiat the New York Central had notiii'a the Ualtiiuore and Ohio that it must top cutting rates, or else the Central would taks freight at any figures it saw fit. In the late dealings coal stocks were firmer, and re covered about 1 per cent, on the announce ment that at a meeting of the coal producers anil carriers to-day a committee of three was app inted to prepare and submit to a future nvi'-tinjr a plan lor the improvement of trade. Jt w,ls also resolvt d that while in the present depressed condition of the industries of the country the companie- have no disposition to advance prices beyond a sum sullicicnt to pay reasonable cotds and expenses, it is the judg mr:it of the meeting that a committee of tiir-d should .t an early a day as possible peiTitt a plan involving an advance of at lea -it titry cents per ton at tide water. After this was known there was a slight reaction in C3 il stocks, as many supposed, from the first report of the meeting, that coal was to be ad-va-iced fifty cents per ton immediately.

COTTON. The cotton market showed decided im provement yesterday. Liverpool was; l-16d lower lor -pots, but arrivals were better. New York had two advances, and New Orleans one, with very small arrivals. In our own market there was a more active inquiry, in which all sorts of buyers participated. Fine clean cottons were especially wanted, and were comparatively scarce. Sales were again f airly active, with au improvement of j-c. The better closed with some approach toward recovering confidence. The New Orleans Times says: "One more ritilo in the cotton market, and then perhaps will '"ome that promised 'perpendicular,' " and adds: "The Lane cotton mill, in this city, cannot keep :;p with the demand for its fab i'icji ; the owners are therefore increasing its capacity." The New York Record does not believe the market can remain unaffected by the decrease of receipts; it views them as the result of nothing but approaching exhaustion M the gupply, "which wi'ltell the more we begin to comprehend that the port receipts cannot reach 4,000,000, and that the total croj.' will not come up to the extravagant no-ti-mi entertained recently by nearly 200,000 bales. A serous fall in silver of l-d per ounce, since last Saturday, has rather shaken the confidence of manufacturers trading with the ea.,t, .s, from our cabin dispatches re ceived from Manchester, it would appear that a corresponding weakness will be shown in the allotment of council bills in London." There iJ fear the market nuy be flooded with council bills, which would perhaps give a dis astn. js blw the first symptoms of which are :Jready leginning to be felt by clo-ing the doors to any more shipments to lnd'.i of manufactured goods. The Record discusses the probable increase or decrease of cotton acreage this spring, influenced, as it will be, by the gradual decline of the next three years, and says: "All this has been changed; mill-owners enter upon a new era this year, for thU surplus of the manufac tured article has all leen cleared otl; the de mand is good, prices are advancing, and the raw material is low. Of course this is not entirely lost sight of by the tiller of the soil, und even if his judgment should dictate to linn file prudence ot sowing less cotton this year, in view of its stea lily decreasing value, the favorable prospects for the outlet of goods will naturally make him pause and determine whether, after all, even an increased supply of his 'snowy flakes' will not be just as well taken care of during the coming year as has lv n vouchsafed to him in the past. The vital iv"it at issue to the planter is not then, r.s to the next crop being four, five or tix million, but whether his financial position will warrant him in cultivating more land or not. It is still an open question, if our crojw do increase from year to year, whether values wiirreede very materially, for the growing jvor ol American cotton abroad, as the real storilard article, out of which most yarn can le spun, the larrrer consumption, both north and south, will give an increased demand, which production will find great difficulty in keeping pat with, now that an equal dis tribution of goodd has taken place. It will le found that preparations for the coming season will be on a larger scale than ever be fore, for farmers, who are driven from sheer necessity to pay their arrears, will vie with (hutfe: who are perfectly able and willia? so undertake an "ucreas'-d acreage, irrejipeetive of their neigt'or' crop'."

The restricted number of articles now on the produce market makes its operations un interesting, as spring advances mere win be improvement in this respect. The New Orleans Times states that at the sugar land ing there the dullness is remarkable, and op erations are smaller than they have been at any time during the season; but there will be a large exportation of bulk corn this week. and the higher price of flour is stimulating the demand lor cornmeal. iheJNewlork Post states: "Last week an unusually large amount of dry goods was sold through the leading auction houses. The decline in the price of cotton has natural iy depressed cot ton goods. The dullness of trade in Europe has much to do with the pressure of foreign goods through the New Y ork auction houses, they furnishing the best outlet for both do mestic and foreign goods when private sales are slow." Corn, in our market, yesterday, remained lower; 100 sacks, second-hand sacks, sold at 47c, and 260 good sacks at 48c. Oats nothing done; some common, mixed with barley, were in the market. Bran is inquired for; high askings at the mills on check orders; 150 sacks, "to arrive," sold at $20. Cornmeal was heavy again, with sides at $2 30 and $ 2 35. Potatoes were unchanged and irregular at from $3 to $3 40 in store. The St. Louis Republican, of Tues day, reports potatoes "quiet and weak:mixed or poor lots easier.

I have now comolete. a nerfect Alisimet of Titles of all lands in Tunica county. Miss., as it was before portions of the same were taken for Tate and Quitman counties. This Abstract shows that there are very few perfect titles in Tunica county. Many of them are utterly defective, and there are scarcely any that are not clouded by tax-titles. In some Instances I find that valuable plantations, about the titles of which the holders have enter tained no doubt, are held by titles that would avail nothing before a court, either in prosecuting or de fending a suit in ejectment. The defects in these titles may generally be cured if they are ascertained at once and the proiier remedy applied.
