New Orle inn Ur advanced, and sold 20 000 bales. H-re lite want her was Dad, heavy rains all day, yet, with soma purchases madi the preceding evening, imt 5.RD1 bles were soid and prices weat up. with nneweatLerand transportation facilities, the (lirtiie would hava b-sea much higher. The Charleston railroad K tve uot-.ce that they can teJte no more cotton at pie-tent, that so botn roads are blockaded yet the boil will not take cotton up the river. How Is that? Who quiiramines Memphis this time? Our m irket adv meed i2 al round, and tha heavy rain atoi iied sumeof the cotton telegrams. The New York Hulit lin, vt Monday, ie;orU: "Al the oiwntnic busbies dragged a little, and finding no lBdli-atloos or a further immediate gain, opera tors, anxious to wind up eig 'gemetita with the close of the week as well a. the month, sold out to take their profit, and this for a time caused a depression, under wnleh a surlukiiie of some 8 or 9 points look plane. Tbe pressure, however, was not very severe, and the demand, commencing to snow greater animation at the decline, a recovery st-t In, which soon carried cost up to even a higher point than tbe opening, and Infused a much stronger tone along the entire line. A considerable amount of the call cam-, from outside sources, but there was slo a nollcsxble Increase In Investments by tbe 'room' or regular operators, and this ap peared to be an additional Inspiration to firmness. In short, expressions of faith la the future are still quite general and unequlvcca1, and tbe purchases tor the spring months tend to Increase.
