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.

Railroad bonds wero generally higher. 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

C'OTION.
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

22.590 bales, and are 5600 less than they
were last year at the same time; the receipts

whether there is any basis for estimates
which put the total at less than that of last
yearf
The decrease of stock at the ports as com
pared with this time last year is 87,739
bales. The decrease in the total cotton in
eight, 489,299 bales, as compared with last

The cotton market yesterday (Monday) was
VMivy; telegrams reported dull and weak
markets. New Orleans was l-16c lower;
Liverpool arrivals opened lower and closed
dull. In our market there was only a mod
erate demand and the tendency of prices was
more in favor of buyers, but rates were not
quotably changed. Low grades and stains
were easy, and were offered very freely,
while bright cottons were scarce and firmly
held.

The New York Bulletin of Friday reports:
"Tbe tone has been fluctuating and feverish
during a greater portion of the day, and not
much business has been done outside the three
near-by months. 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

foreign advices, both as regards the Liver
pool market and the political situation, were
somewhat stimulating, and this aided efforts
for a rite, and on which some six points were
gained. 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. The actual count of
cotton in New York, December 31, 1877, is
as follows: In Brooklyn, 21,913 bales; Bart
let t & Green, 10,134 bales; Staten Island,
33.056 bales; on shipboard not cleared. 9811
bales; on wharves. 1385 bales; in warehouses.
35,495 bales. Total, 111,812 bales."

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.

RIVER NEWS.
Weather.
The overhead weather is nice enough to
look at, but cold enough to freeze the but
tons off a pewter dog. 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.
