TELE. MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL -TUESDAY. JANUAEY 8, 1878.
FINANCIAL. Now the holidays are over currency i fall ing back to iU usual position. Up to the day before Christmas the demand for money for thn country wxa so trreat that the banks were bejfinninu to Le 8lraiU;rieJ. Silver wa es pecially call! for, so much so that more had to be telegraphed for alVr the banks had laid in what was considered an ample i-upply. ChrixUnas day over the extra demand cased and the banks were approaching eae, when bad weather almost suptnl-l the shipment of cotton, which had the effect of tying up large amounts of money, and of d.screaing the supply of exchange to a point that daily leaves soiue of the bank with leas than they require, and they have to seek aid from those who may have an excels. There is a fair de mand for money, and the numerous com mercial failures at New York, Chicago and elsewhere have added to caution that was al ready extreme. At the banks money quotes 810 per cent, per annum; exchange quoted on New York and the east H dis count baying; N'ewKnglanJ sight, with three days irra'.e. l-i discount: New Orleans, if discount; svijiug on all points at par. The New York bulletin, of Friday, reiAVts: "New York exchabge was quoted to-day as follows at thn places named: Savannah buying H. selling d discount. Cincinnati firm, good, demand; 100(350 discount; par. Chicago, 50 premium. New Orleans com mercial, 7-16; lank. 5-18. St. Louis, 50 dis count. Milwaukee, par. Charleston ay, 3-15 discount; 1-16(5 par." The Chicago Tri bune, of Saturday, says currency is in lesa movement to the interior, receipts are larger than shipments; the banks are pursuing a rery conservative policy, and, as a rule, ex tend accommodations only to customers. In fact,caution has reached what would in prospe rous times be considered an extreme point. But in the present uncertainty it is regarded on all sides as only a wise and proper conserva tism, though it is hoped the need for it may be but temporary. The New York World has the following: 'The old custom of making speculative purchases and sales in the torm of time bar fains often fewer risks than the plan of buying for cash and carrying stocks by loans or selling tor to-morrow's delivery and borrowing the stick. The present cus tom makes the call loan market, both for money and stocks, much too important, and if speculators care anything about it, causes far too much private business to be trans acted in public. The custom of buyer's and seller's options does away with unnecesary transactions, keeps the business of an office from the constant inspection of other krokers, and can easily be made safe by a deposit in one of the trust companies. Anything that will lessen the riek of handling money and securities is worth attention." The Union and Planters bank had its semi-annual meet ing yesterday, when a dividend of live per cent, was declared on the business pf the last six months. Buying.

The week Opened at the stock exchange on a very strong market for speculative shares, with the leading stocks evidently in strong hands. It is understood that Vanderbilt, Keene, Sage and Morgan are holding Lake Shore. Michi gan Central and New York Central, Moses Taylor and his friends the coal stocks, and Charley Oaborne the Northwesterns. Ru mors are also afloat that the gold brokers are changing front on and in favor of Lake Shore and the Wisconsin roads, and are bulling tbe Union Pacific. The market opened !, above Saturday s closing prices, ana auriug the first hour the general list advanced I per cent. Subsequently there was a similar decline, but during the afternoon speculation was again charecU-nz-d by a strong tone, and prices made a further advance, especially lor Lake Shore, the granger shares and coal stocks, the market closing firm at about the best prices of the day. lne Wisconsin stocks advanced to the highest price for the new year, the advent of cold weather and im proved condition of the country roads in the west having inspired the bulls with sanguine expectations of a large grain movement and a consequent thriving business for railroad properties. Transactions aggregated 156,000 shares, of which 55,000 were Lake Shore, 12,000 Northwestern common, 3500 North western preferred, 13.0U0 St. Paul common, 4600 St- Paul preferred, 1600 Ohio, 1400 Wa bash, 1400 Union Pacific, 4000 Lackawanna, 5000 Delaware and Hudson, 2000 Morris and Essex, 2000 Michigan Central, and 7400 West ern Union.

At the close of our last week's review of the cotton market for the official week New York quoted middling cotton at HM'c, ad vanced to 115-16d; New Orleans quoted lOiVic, advanced to lOTc; Liverpool quoted 6$d and remained without change; Mem phis quoted 10c, advanced to 10c. This report shows a slight advance during the week, owing to some improvement in war prospects in Europe from Turkey desiring peace, and from the closing of the picking season bv rain, enow and frost. The weather has been unfavorable to shipping cotton from and to the market, which will account for i tho small receipts and sales of the week. During the week, while middling had gen erally advanced, ordinary, low ordinary and stained cottons have declined, owing to the inrroaaed nroDortion of those qualities com ing into market. The week's weather has been wintery, but bears no comparison in that respect with the inclemency of the same week last year. Then the average hight of the thermometer in -Memphis was, for the whole week, 23 degrees, against an average of 40 14 degrees last week. Watts A." Co.'b last received Liverpool cotton circular ? laces the visible supply of cotton, Iecember 4th. at 700,000 bales less, and the stocks held by spinners in England and on the con tinent about 203,000 bales less than at the same time last year, a deficit of about 900.000 bales. India has been looked to to fill up a nortion of this deficiency, bat liombav ad vices speak less hopefully; from Egypt there will probably be a decrease, and Brazil's news is as bad as can be, only 59U0 bales afloat for Great Britain, against 23,700 at the same time last year. 1 he next crop is expected to be so small that Spain will absorb it all. "That the atronfir statistical position has in some measure sustained this market lor some months past, there is no doubt. But for this we might now have been at 6d or under for middling uplands, because of the depression caused by tbe Russo-1 urkisu war, the politi cal uneasiness in France, the low price of sil ver, and the unsatisfactory state of trade in Manchester. On the other hand, it 1 should be bornv in mind that the prkses I w new slightly lower frr Aj&esioan I than onf J ear ago, and that the pns ent irrStt deficit in supplies has suited lot from a long period of activity. but has flowed a long period of depresw in trade. some cusquieung questions may yet arise, snu tne tear of these may hold our market is check. Under these circumstances it Kymi but reasonable to expect some im Drovemerf in trade, besides, we think it quite evitent the strong statistical position while it bw attracted great attention, has as vet tailed to stimulate anything like a specu lative deesnd, because of the drawbacks to which wa have referred; bat there are, we have reason to believe, many anxiously look' mg on, hoping that the anticipated large re cemts of Averic&n will soon present a favor able opportunity to buy." Messrs. Latham Alexander t Co., of New York, in their cir- cular of December 22d, estimate, from the Dresent statistical position of cotton, that considerable deficiency in the supply, com pared with last year, must remain through out the cotton year, sufficient, probably, to cause sufficient apprehensions of scarcity, They also notice that, although there has been much complaint from English and continental spinners of bad trade, con sumption has not been checked; the stock in Liverpool is lower than at any time since 170; that cotton has been manutactur ed as lost as taken is evidenced by the European spinners' stocks being nearly fifty per cent, less than last year; and tnat spin ners' stock on this side are also believed to be light. Considering these points, they are of opinion that a crop of four and three nnirW millions seems indispensable, while 4.400 000 is regarded as a liberal estimate, Hence, tbe price being now low compared with former years, and the statistical posi tion etrostf. as soon as receipts show a diminution, they look for an improvement. which will continue during the remainder of the season. Receipts in Memphis during the official week aggregated US 12 bales, against 23,017 bales the previous week, and 3143 bales the corresponding week last season, and 14, 075 bales the season - before. The total receipts since September 1, 1877, were 239,907 bales, aeainst 281,772 bales at the correspond ing time last season, showing a decrease of 41,065 bales, lotal receipts same time in 1275-6 was 293,794 bales. Shipments during the official week aggre gated 11,781 bales.against 10,581 bales the pre vious week, and 6999 bales the- corresponding week last season. Total shipments since Sep tember 1st are 177,609 bales, against 193,615 bales the same time last year; a decrease of 21,066 bales. Sales during the week were 10,500 bales 6700 to exporters, 3500 to spinners, and MO speculators. During the previous week the total sales were 8900 bales. During the cor responding weak last year the total sales were 15,500 bales, of which exporters took 7300 bales, spinners 7600, speculators 600.

There did not appear to be many features of a decided character to ad vise, the changes, as usual of late, being due in the main to manipulation by local opera tor, and as the 'bears' are rather apathetic in their resistance, the 'bulls' have again managed to make a higher basis for the major I 1 1 ,L.

The demand, however, was not active at the improvement, and this, in con nection with a great many 'short notices' floating around, had a counteracting influ ence, which, with a gradual decline, sent values back again to about where they stood last evening, and the tone, if anything, weak. Spots have met with a moderate and uncer tain demand, and the market, on the whole, was slow and tame.

GENERAL TRADE. Wet and bad roads at Christmas and mud dy streets in the city, and since then inhos pilable snow and Arctic frost have much cut down expenditures at the holidays, to the dis appointment ot wholesale stores, and the pro duce market has also felt the effects of the weather in obstructing business. One of our Front street firms received a telegram yester day, from St. Louis, which stated that the river there was full of ice, and barrel freights by river had been put up to 40c. The cold has caused several articles to be held higher, including corn and potatoes. The Chicago Tribune says: "If Dickens had been there his pierc ing eyes would have seen not one Micawber alone, but several hundred of him, all wait ing on the floor of the exchange for. 'in fact. something to turn up,' even if it were only coals or noses. I here probably has not been sucn another day. one in which so little busi ness was done, since the fortnight which im mediately succeeded the big fire." The cause of this was the bad roads. The New Orleans Picayune, ot Saturday, reports cornmeal dull at $2 352 40; corn in Backs firm at 54 56c; oats dull at o7c; bran, o2$c a hundred; bay. S14M17 0U.

Under foot the ground is either hard frozen, or, when the sun has played all day on one spot, is of the slushy persuasion, so that pedal locomotion is anything else bat comfortable. The tem perature shows no signs of rising above freezing point, and the next thing we know the river will be full of floating ice. As yet none has appeared here, but reports come from above 01 a general freeze up. Blvers. Omen Signal ssavica. Obs.. u. 8. A., I Memphis, January 7. 1878. f Above low water. Changes. BTATIOBS.
