The cotton market yesterday presented the lame noatisfactory appearance to hold en a before. Prices remained unchanged at lb rrincipal markets, except at Kew York, where -there was a decline, making the quotation there below that at New Orleans. In oar market the demand was light and there was little done and the closei was at unchanged qaotation. but eon Gessions are spoken of. Toe New York bul letin, of Tuesday, says: "So far as features calculated to exhibit a timulatirtd basis were concerned, none of a posi.ivt character could be found, and a gre- many operators are still careful about U.kin hold of cotton, even where they consi ler it cheap at rmhngr rates. The absence ,f farther pressure, however, consequent pon the disappearance of 'weak long- cotton a,d the nervousness among the short;,- creates a demand which in itself is tiulating, and this has buoyed the market "ip for the day, especially on the more active nmnier months, The continued free move ment of spots is not without effect in building up 'bullish' views again, the more so that sup plies of late have become more difficult to Teilentav.

Exchange was in plenty to meet current wants, which are small. The call for money, which has been only fair, is becoming less active. Charleston railroad stocks, though quiet, are not dead, and operations have not ceased; yesterday there was an inquiry lor it, with a bid of 28. It appears there are buyers when the slO:k can be had under 30. The New York Bul letin, of Tuesday, reports: "New York ex change was quoted to-day as follows at the places named: Savannah buying, 3 16; selling, 5 13 premium.

GENERAL TRADE. Oeneral trade was a quiet affair yesterday; the prices of many articles are undergoing a decline, and there is a natural desire to do but little until "bottom is touched." In feed, corn was at previous rater, bran was still in quired for, with none off ering; bay was losing its steadiness. Cjrnmeal is so flat that there is hardly business enough doing to support a quotation. The arrival of six hundred barrels of potatoes demoralized the market, and quo tations are an unknown quantity. Eggs and chickens retained previous figures. Quotations below are for round lots at the landing ana the railreaa depots, and, in clude neither drayage, storage, nor other extenses outside of the bare freight and charges up to the time of arrival. Jobbing and store sales are at higher rates, as they include drayage, storage and profit of the dealer. Feed.

The Balle of Shreveport was insured for twentv thousand dollars. About half of the cargo of the Belle of Shreveport was taken off without damage, loaded on a barge, and towed to at. liouia by the Grand Tower. The hull of the Fawn, wrecked at tne bridge at Johnsonville during the late big water in Tennessee river, is now afloat, and will be towed to Padacah in a few days. The Cincinnati marine and dry dock com- oanv has a new model barge under course of construction for Captain Vint Shinkle, which will come in good play tbe ensuing season, during low water. The Helena ferryboat, bod Aiee, lateiy being rebuilt at Paducab, is about finished and will be ready for business the first of Mav. She has Ibeen lengthened twenty-six feet, andiotherwise improved. The o ihcer s of the Mark 1 wain report tbe Dyersburg t float, but in a pocket that will hold her until a rise lets her out. It will take fully eight inches of water more to allow her to pass the bar that has formed outside of her. St. Louis Post: Tbe Henry Frank retused freight, and left for New Orleans with nearly 2000 tons. Capt. Hicks understands it is the heaviest steamboat cargo going out of bt. Louis this season. Cole Boren and Geo. Ro- birds are the Frank s pilots. The iron dredgeboat, tor service on tbe Ohio river, which has been in tbe coarse of construction at the yard of the Western iron boat building company, at boutn bt. Louis, was sncceEsfullv launched last Tuesday. She is 92 teet long, by 3114 feet beam, aud draws, with cabin on, 17 incnes on mean draft. Captain Loo Allen, pilot on watch on tbe Belle of Shreveport when she struck, says tbe boat was dropping aown trom woods s landing, on me east Bice of Sheep island, and, after striking the obstruction, floated three hundred yards, and then sunk in fifteen feet of water. Cap tain Jim Donahue was Captain Allen s part ner on the Shreveport, and both are first-class pilotf. The knite-Bhiner ot the uommonweaun says the texas-tender of the Sto. Genevieve told tbe lamp-trimmer ot tne urana lower that the pantryman of the Balle Memphis heard that the second baker of the James How ard was informed by the porter of the City of Greenville that it was nip-and-tnek between M Cormick and fearson who should na?e charge of the engine-room of the Emma C. Elliott when a change was made, and that Tuck was a little ahead.- The berth is good for fourteen months every year. Taakinar about Jonahs, a strange tataiity has seemed to attend the engines of the Belle of Shreveport. These engines were built tor and first used in the Winchester, built in 1:66, and burned at Babb's island, Ohio, four days after she was completed, February 23, 1866. Next they were placed in the J. on. M'Cullough, built in 1868, and sunk at Mad ison, Indiana, November 17, 1869. The next we hear of them they were in the Arlington, built in I87U. and sunk atuumbenana isiana November 9, 1876. All the above steamers were totally lost. Now the unlucky machin ery is in the Balle of Shreveport, which sunk at Sheep island, below St. Louis, last Satur day morning'. The engines have 22 inch cylinders, 7 feet stroke. Helena aad New Orleaaa Iilae. Tbe St. Louis Times is authority for the statement that an arrangement has bsen ef fected between Captains Hicks and Unssom, of the Henry Frank, and Captains Thorwe- ean and Mutenberger, ot tbe unaries r. Chonteaa. to plac9 these two fine steamers diirinfir the eominir season in the New Or leans and Helena trade, forming a weekly line. Tbe Times goes on to say that Helena ships south about Bixtv tbausand bales of cot ton annually, and, being tbe terminus ot three railroads, is a good point tor passengers, and recommends Memphis and Little Rock to get upon the fence, lest they be run over in the furious drive this young giant of the valley ia making for commercial supremacy. It is true Helena is a right thriving little place, bnt ail the business she can draw from Mem phis will not add much to her importance. As to Little Rock, there is a town which know better how to set trade and hold on to it than manv a city of more pretensions. She is fully competent to take care of herself, as witness the wonderful increase in her busi ness within the last five years. The "three- railroid" nart of the chapter is the best. Thn Times farther savs the boats named will pntor thn trade about September 15th. Both boats will be put in tbe most thorough con dition dnrinff the summer.

The trustees of the Cincinnati Southern road have decided to immediately proceed with the construction of the road irom Bojce's station to Chattanooga, and have directed the engineer to advertise for bids. It is estimated that it will require seventy five thousand dollars to build the five miles. Hew a New Xark Syndicate (iet Left. The New Tork Times, of the eighteenth, gives the annexed history of a little trans action in the bonds of one of our home rail roads. It throws some light upon the mea ger dispatch printed tne otner uay, announcing the commencement of suits at Louisville against the Louisville and Nash ville road: "The persons who controlled the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis rail road last autumn devised a plan to lengthen the line of the road by building a branch, to be called the Chicago division. The branch Was to run from NaahviUe, lennessee, throneh Owenaboro. Kentucky, to Jivans- ville, Indiana, a distance of 157 miles. The plan was to build the new road in tne o-t possible manner, laying steel rails over ld7 miles of the route. To procure tne means necessary for the work, it was proposed to issue bonds at the rate of 114,000 ior each mile of the road. These bonds were to be flOOO each to run forty years, and to bear in terest at the rate of six per cent, payable semi-annually in gold. They were to be se cured by a first mortgage upon the road, its rolling stock, etc. E.W. Cole, president of the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis rail road company, cams to this city last October, and laid the scheme before a number of capi talists, who approved it. A syndicate was formed, and on October 20 ih its members agreed to take up the bonds at ninety cents on the dollar. The agreement between the parties was that the toads should be de posited with the Central trust company as trustee, which should issue them to the syn dicate in proportion as the money for the building of the new road was paid. The contract provided that $150,000 should be paid to the railroad company on November 1. 1879; $100,000 on December 1, 1879, and $150,000 on January 1, 1880. The remain der of the sum subscribed was to be paid in whenever called for by the railroad company. Soon after tbe contract was made between the syndicate -nd the railroad company a controlling interest in the Nashville, Chatta nooga and St. Louis road was obtained by the Louisvillo and Nashville railroad company, whose interests were opposed to the building of such a branch road as had been devised. It was then determined that tbe branch road should not be built. The syndicate proposed to carry out their part of tbe contract, but the new managers of the Nashville and Chat tanooga retused to accept their money and Issue the bonds they demanded. Early in Match the Liuisville and Nashville company entered into an agreement with the Nash ville, Chattanooga and St. Louis company, by which tbe former corporation agreed to pay to the members of tbe syndicate any damages suffered by them through the non performance of the contract made last Octo ber. A letter was written by Mr. James A. Roosevelt, of this city, on March 23 J, to Mr. H. Victor Newcomb, who is now tbe presi dent of tbe Louisville and Nashville com pany, asking him how the agreement be tween the two railroad companies would affect the interests of tbe subscribers to the bonds for the projected branch road. Mr. Newcomb answered that the Louisville and Nashville had 'no tangible proposition to make' to them, but would meet them 'in a fair and liberal spirit.' 'We shall have.' he wrote, a 'variety of bonds ( bring upon the market, vrh ch, without any reflection upon tbe Nashville and Chatta nooga bonds, I think will be more desirable. You must bear in mind that your contract was made with the Nashville and Chatta nooga road. Our matters with that road nave been in such a cnaotic condition inac it has been simply impossible for me to take this matter ud. You must also be aware that tbe bonds cannot be issued, as tbe road is not to be built. I am not aware that our contract specific acy time when the Nashville and Unattanooga Bball deliver the bonds." mis letter settled it that the syndicate were not to get tbe bonds for which they had subscribed. The New York capitalists now claim to have Buffered a loss of from twelve to fourteen per cent, on tbe par value of the bonds, as. judg ing from the market prices of similar securi ties, they consider they could now sell the Nashville and Chattanooga bonds if they had them at from one hundred and two to one hundred and four, while the price they agreed to pay for them was ninety per cent, of their par value. Four Fuits for damages have theretore been .begun in the supreme court in tbii city by members of the syndicate againet the two railroad esmpames. The principal action is brought by Mr. George - I. Seney, " who subscribed tor $698,000 worth of bonds. He estimates his damages at $90,000, but asks a jadama-t foe $125,000. Ales-rj. James A. Alfred and William E. Roosevelt estimate their aamBges at $31,000. and sue for $40,000; Messrs. J. S. Kennedy te Uo. claim a judgment ior ,a,wv, after suffering damages which they place at $15,000; Messrs. Kountze place their present damages at $15,000, and sue for $25,000. Oa the application of Messrs. Shearman & Sterling, attorneis for the plaintiffs, Judge Donobue yesterday issued attacomenis gainBt the property of the deiendant railroad companies in this city. The attachments were immediately served upon the Metropolitan bank, the Bank ot Commerce, tee u matin bank, the Continental national bank, Drexel, Morgan Co.. John J. Cisco aon, jesup, Paton & Co., and at tbe effice of tbe Louis ville and Nashville railroad, at No. 52 Wall street." HOTEHEvTSOr UCRAN UTEAMEBt New Orleans, April 22. Arrived : Han- . .
