Railroad bonds were generally lower. The stock market, although irregular in the early dealings, was in the main higher, the ad vance ranging from if to Ihi per cent., but subsequently a weaker feeling prevailed and there was a decline of i to 14 percent. At the second call a partial recovery took place, but during tho afternoon the market was characterized by considerable depression and prices declined hi to per cent, from the highest point of the day. The greatest fall was in coal stocks. The Luke Shore and Michigan Central decline attracted some at tention f rom the fact that most of the roads were reported to be doing a large grain busi ness, but it was generally attributed to sales of long stock by operators recently bulls. First it was reported that this speculator, then that and the other speculator were sell ing, and before the close ot the day the name of nearly every prominent operator was men tioned in this connection. Nothing definite transpired, but certain it is that somebody was selling and that quite freely. New York Central declared the regular quarterly divi dend of 2 rer cent.

COTTON. Our market yesterday was firm throughout the day at Wednesday's quotations. Sales aggregated 700 bales, and would have been larger but for the scarcity of cotton. Of this, 450 bales was sold on "private terms," but the balance was at full prices. The New York Jlullslin, of Tuesday, says of the previous day's market: "As a rule, holders appear to have a fair amount of faith in their supplies still, and there was no show of increased anx iety to realize or to offer stocks greatly in ex cess of the outlet. For future delivery there has been a considerable amount of business done, but with a very irregular, somewhat fe verish and more or less unsatisfactory and disappointing turn for the 'bull' interest. At the opening, in view of the tenor of the cable advices, tbe tendency appeared to be upward ; indeed, October did sell at 11c, but a weakening soon took place, which was followed by quite a decided break, ani rates before they stopped went off 15 H) points from the highest reached. The influences tending to pioduce this result were to many operators by no means clear, and there was a general expression of sur prise over the course of the market; but offer ings from other quarters were free, and one or two leading dealers were 'spill.ng out cot ton' quite lively. It is intimated that re ports just issued by the southern cotton ex changes, and especially in sections where damage to crop had been previously reported aa very severe, are by no means as bad as might have been expected, while the port re ceipts for the day are somewhat more prom ising, and finally Liverpool left off with a weaker tone."

They will both arrive in time to discharge and receive for return voyages Saturday even ing. According to dispatches from Captain Milt Harry, the Batesville will tie up when she ar rives out of White river, and the Ruth will arrive in time to go out in her regular place Saturday evening. The Cincinnati Ecening Times, of Wednesday, is authority for the statement that the Gaff will not load for Memphis at pres ent, Captain Bob Wine electing to wait till after the canal repairs are completed. Cincinnati Times, Wednesday: "Captain James D. Parker, the genial strawberry blonde secretary of the Memphis and Ohio river packet company, was elected vice-president of the chamber of commerce, yesterday, by an overwhelming majority. Bully for the Captain. Captain Tom Darragh is here with his fine little steamer Maumelle, which we recommend to our shippers, who, we have no doubt will send Captain Tom home to Ar kansas river with a paying cargo. The Mau melle also takes Memphis and lower Ohio river freight." The action of the wharf and landing com mittee, and its indorsement by the eity coun cil, in regard to completing the work of repairing the levee at the foot of Jefferson street, meets with general approval.. Now keep the ball moving, and "never cease to love" until that portion of the levee lying be tween Union street and the elevator is put in similar safe condition. The sinking of the dump and sluffing off of the river-front may be easily arrested with a row of piling, and when completed, Memphis can Doast of as commodious a levee as any river port in the United States all paid for with wharfage col lections from steamboatmen, which has almost universally been paid without a murmur with this object in view. Go on with your piling and stone-paring. Better investments of the wharfage fund cannot be made. The New Orleans Timts river chronicler seeks to expose our maritime ignorance be cause we said two and a half a bale for cot ton from Shreveport to New Orleans was living rates, and states "that even the price there enumerated, with only thirty inches in the river, and the same cotton to "be handled three rimes before it reaches New Orleans, is not quite as good living as he might imagine; besides which, hardly one of the Red river steamers reaches port, after making a trip, but what has to go on the docks for repairs, on account of the obstructions to safe naviga tion. Please mention the above, Brother Brooks, and thereby enlighten the heathen." While we admit the deplorable circumstances enumerated, we cannot help insisting that two dollars and a half a bale from Shreve port to New Orleans is better than seventy-five cents from Memphis to the same port, and we will allow for the Shreveport people hav ing to build a new boat every trip. YVq hope toe heathen stand enlightened. VXDERTAKEBS. . H. HOLST. I. W. HOLST. &. II. HOLST & BBO. UNDERTAKERS. 3XO 31aln, opp. Feabody Hotel.

First Premium Awarded by the Texas State Fair or 1877, the Arrow Tie" Being One of its Competitors. Office of J. R. Godwin A Co.. Cotton Factors, I . I . . .. ) , , tjrr-T I rif offering to planters and merchants the tirlp Tie, the following advantages are claimed for it: Sim plicity of application, greater strength both of tha Tie and Band, close adjustment and freedom from slip, which prevents any expansion of the bale, and the Impossibility of removing the band without cut ting it The Importance of these advantages must be evi dent to planters, especially the greater strength of the bands. Whenever the band breaks the cotlon Is liable to be wasted or pilfered: besides, most local freight rates on railroads and steamboats are so much per bale, also drayage and storage. Hence the Importance of putting up heavy bales at plantation The strength of the GriD Tie ts from 2800 to 3000 pounds. The Arrow Tie, from 1800 to 2000 pounds. For compressing cotton bales we defy competition and this. In the future. Is to determine the merit of cotton ties, as tbe closer the cotton can be com pressed the cheaper It can be transported from one point to another. The recent reduction In the price of Ties was probably due to the competition of tbe Grip Tie. All are aware that the American Tie Company have for years bad a monopoly In tbe Tie busluess. This year, however, they are only offering the Arrow Tie. This they have placed In the hands of all dealers with whom they could contract to keep no other Tie in stock, endeavoring thereby to drive out all compe tition. Therefore, we claim It Is to the Interest of all consumers of Ties to use the tirlp Tie: First, be cause It is superior In every respect to the Arrow Tie; second, because you are assisting to throw oil the shackles of a monopoly. Order through your own merchant, or direct from us: the price tn either case shall be as low as the Arrow Tie. J. R. G0DWIX & CO., Ajrents, 336 Front at, MeasphlM. Tens J. B. LAFITTE CO..Gen'l Ag'ts.
