THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL -TUESDAY. AUGUST 28, 1877.
FINANCIAL. The past week ha Lvcn one of dullness. with no olhor change in financial matters than an increase in the call for loans. So sharp has the call for money got to le that, while the quotations remain at 10'tl2ier cent, per annum, 8 per cent, is the prevailing figure, and the resources ot the banks are running down at a ratio that was unknown last year at the same time. Hie fact that our season's receipts are more than a hun dred thousand bales behind t hate of last year will go for to account lor the increase in the applications for monetary aid. Kxchangc con tinues scarce; quoted on New York and the east at par buying; Ki premium selling. New Orleans, hi discount buying; selling at par. Tne New lork bulletin reports: "New "lork exchange was quoted to-day as follows at the places named: Savannah buying, Xi sell f. Charleston easv, scarce; none to be had. St. Louis, par. Cincinnati plow; buying, 1-10 off; selling, par. New Orleans com roercial, 3-16 if; bank. J if 33-16. Chicago, 75(a &) discount. The St. Louis Krpublican, of Saturday, reports: "The demand for money is considered fair and rather greater than existed at this season last year. Some of the banks report they have all the paper offered that they care to discount; others would take a considerable amount a hun dred thousand or so of outride su.ty-'(ay pa per at 10 per cent, per annum on the right kind ot security being offered. Some of the banks are uxommodating customers on short time paper at 8 per cent; others de-nurd 10 for all favors." The Cincinnati Enquirer, of Saturday, reports: "The demand tor loan, while not large in numbers or amounts, ag gregates about as largely as backers desire to accommodate, and the rates of intercut are steadily maintained at 7(f 4 per cent, in bank, the inside rates a ruling figure on short dates to favorite depositors. In the open matlcet there is some surplus of capital over the offer ings of strictly prime business paper, and bankers can readily place the latter at 7 per cent., and, where collaterals are given, at 6 per cent., with loans upon call, based uon irorerninenU at 4(5 per eent. There is a steady and fair movement of currency to the interior." The Chicago Tribune gives a very Haltering account of the condition of the banks there, but describes business as ex ceeding dull, while the banks have abund ance of funds. The Tribune proceeds to say: "The banks reported a more active demand for currency from country correspondents; but, as. yet. most, if not all of them, draw mainly on their deposits. They offer no paper ) far as heard from for discount. The fact is, the resources of bankers in the towns nnd cities tributary to Chicago are steadily and largely increasing from year to year, and the day is not far distant when bankers in all the leading cities of the west will be able to car ry the farmers, merchants, and other custom ers in their own immediate vicinity without calling on Chicago for rediscounts to any very considerable amount. Who now thinks of getting accommodations from the eastern banks? Individual cases there maybe; but, as a rule, the thing has passed away forever. Chicago banker: can furnish their customers all the money they want to do business with; and it will not be many years before the five hundred town' and cities within the range of Chicago's business interests will be able to do the same. The fact is, the west has been accumulating capital immensely, and it will continue to do it for an indefinite period. The present crop will add -tens of millions to our present wealth." Oold yesterday took a turn upward, at New York the market closed at lCHAf; here, brokers offer lOtfif. In our local mar ket, during the week, there has been a mere nothing in stocks or banks; some gas stock is inquired for at 97, but holders want 93. There is little desire to take anything, for now money is becoming comparatively scarce it pays better to make loans than to buy stocks; the rate for loans on the street is generally from IX to 24.

The stock market was generally strong at the opening; it advanced to 1A per cent., and later made a further advance of Jt to 1 7A. The market afterward became heavy, and under a sharp pressure to sell the entire list gave way X to SX per cent. After the first call there was a recovery of X to X per cent., but the improvement was soon partially lost, although at the sec ond call the market was again firm and higher. In the evening the market was fluctuating and weak toward the close, when in some instances the lowest quotations of the day were made. The decline from the highest point of the day was X to IX per cent The greatest decline was in Northwestern, which fell off to 31 14 lor common, and to60f for prefeired.

Our weekly cotton review at th& end of the last commercial week quoted middling cotton in New York at WKc. it fell during the week to 10 15-16c; New Orleans quoted lOTgc, fell to lOVic. Liverpool auoted G l-16d. declined to5 15-10d: Memphis quoted 10.c. fell to in 7-16c. These figures speak tor them selves, and show that a regular butchery of prices has been going on. The cotton market amwarcd la have no friends, and down went the staple without mercy. Gold fell during the week from 105 to 104, a change that is inH!nti0 rf cood to the country, but which stood in the way of exporters making their exchanges favorably, ana consequently was inimical to the cotton trade. Generally en couraging expectations as to the growing crop aid the depression of the cotton on hand. Th last weeklv review of the New York ituiletia minted; In a general way. the un dertone of the market is weak and the- out let mnoan 1a accented bv a majority ot fhn dealers as fur from encouraging. This is due in a great measure to the disappointment over the condition of affairs at Liverpool and Xfanrhpjitpr- where trade has proven 8loW, uncertain and unprofitable, with recent mail advices taking rather a gloomy view of what may follow, and the cable bringing intelli- isenre of lanre failures, blocks, too, keep up pretty full, and the more cheering accounts from many sections regarding the progress of the crop lead to the interenoe itaii so iar as Iccitiroate consumptive wants are concerned at leant, there will be no actual scarcity of cotton. Under the circumstances it is difficult to induce many purcha--s ahead for investment and fresh de mand is moderate, yet the desire to sell the market off is also curbed somewhat in view of the possibility of getting a better margin on any n arrv at the close of the present crop yt-ar. Dealings in options, therefore, have U?en confined largely to this and next month, and the influences almost solely of a local character under the manipulations of the 'room.' After a considerable break, August and September commenced to harden, and were afterward the subject of considerable spirited bidding and a pretty full demand, especially the latter month, with 'corner' again looming up. The squeez?, however, does not appear in exactly the ordinary shape, and the current report places matters somewhat as follows: It is supposed or known, that a cer tain large eastern operator was loaded up with deliveries on July and August to a much larger extent than expected or prepared for, but, obtaining the aid of a loan of foreign capital lying idle here, attempted to carry. Latterly, however, it is believed that the cotton has been turned over in full to the parties who rallied to the support of said operator with the.r fund-", at a certain fixed rate, with a guaran tee to make erood any differences, and that pretty much all late operations have been based upon the enoru ot the recent owner of this stock to reduce margin for los, and of the present owners to work it off in some shape at a better rate than that at which it was received. Other large operators havv, been quietly but closely watching matters; and, while aiding by every influence they could bring to bear the 'bull' side, were, it was thought, merely awaiting the appearance of the highest notch, in order to sell freely. I ne demand, as before, again stands almost exclusively to the credit of the domestic spin ners, the Liverpool market affording nothing but loss on purchases. We understand, however, that a considerable portion of the cotton turned in against the loan, as above noted, will be forwarded abroad if possible, the receivers being large shippers from this port." Receipts in Memphis during the official week aggregated 198 bales, against 227 bales the previous week, and 628 bales the corre sponding week last season. The total re ceipts since September 1, 1876, arj 383,793 bales, against 486,166 bales at the correspond ing time last season, showing a decrease of 102.368 bales. Shipments during the official week aggre gated 470 bales, against 705 bales the previous week, and 3333 bales the corre sponding week last season. Total shipments since September 1st are 383,381 bides, against 482,772 bales the same time last year; a de crease of 99,091 bales. The total stock on hand was 5820 bales, against 6992 bales last week, and 6266 bales at this time last year. Sales during the week were 1125 bales, all to spinners, against 700 bales the pre vious week.

Yesterday (Monday) the cotton market was better: not only was there a check to the con tinued decline, but New York had two ad vances in the course of the day, while Liver pool was firmer. In our market the demand was insignificant, but the improvement in the telegrams improved the tone ot the market, and last week s quotation was maintained. London dispatch, received yesterday at the Appeal office, states that the stocks of cotton in mill-owners' hands having accumulated until its value reache i from one to hve h tn dred thousand pounds, a reduction has ben made of five ier cent, m the wages of the cotton-npinners. The New lork World, oi rnday, reported: "Ihc demoralization in this market continued, especially with regard to spots and early futures, for which there Bcciued to be really no adequate basis of val ues. Liverpool further declined, and ship pers could no nothing. A feature of some in terest was the comparatively steady prices for the later months, due to the really doubtful character of the crop accounts. The cater pillars and other vermin are evidently in creasing, but it is useless to talk of drought, for the complete cessation ot rain is what the growing crop now needs.
