? Money in fair demand at 8 per
e.-nt. Local securities dull but seady.
We quote from the monthly circular
of the Manhattan Savings Bmk aad
Trust Company:
"'Th marke: for local securities
this month ha ruled quiet and barely
B'eady. Taxing District 4-B's are a
shade lower, owing to tne maraexing
of a round amount by a heavy holder;
the sixes c ntinue firm. Memphis
lias stock has b en itrong the greater
part i f the mouth, but closes dull and
weak under the uncertainty attending
the granting or refus 1 of pr.vileges to
tha proposed new company. Bank
and insurance stocks and investment
bonds geners ly are firm, and where
there are any changes they are gen
erally higher, with one exception.
This exception is in the case of Mis
sissippi and T. nnessee consols, series
A, which are slightly lower than they
were thirty days ago. when the road
(as long ago foretold by us,) went
into the control of the friends of
the Illinois Central liailroai Company.
Some of the holders of these
bonds appear .to have become uneasy
on the subject of certain high-handed
measures that might be attempted by
tae newoners, in relation tithe
bonds. To all such we would say, if
you are really frightened, sell your
bonds ; but we, for our part, fear no
danger. I here are still courts 1 1 pro
tect property-h lders from spoliation;
and, moreov r, wn cannot believe that
either the Illinois Central Railroad
Comnanv. or the director of that road
who is credited with buying ths Mis
sissippi and Tennessee maiority stock,
would lend the sanction of their hith
erto honorable record to any high
handed nioceeding of the charac er
The cotton market cloned quiet, but
firm. Sa'es, 450 bales; middling, 8;c.
At New York spots closed quiet and

C. L. Greene & Co's. report- of cot

special new f-a nres the market ad
vanced some 7 to 8 points and was
fa'rly well held. The demand was in
the main to cover, in protect'on of
engagements likely to be endingered
by going over the holiday.
