The clesrinjrs of last week again
how a very satisfactory condition o!
business. Tlit re was an increase in
tie total ol the thirty banks reporting
of 15 3 per cent, over the correspond
ing week last year. Excluding New
York the total wao an incrrvss of 13 6
per cent. The artivity in Wa'l street
speculative operations makes tbe fig
' ure high there. On the entire listouiy
five cities report a decline on the wei k,
nd of these only ByMcnsp, N. x , was
over 10 per cent. New Orleans de
diced only 3.4 per cent, a consider
bit Improvement over the previous
week or two ; G .lvr atin, which showed
a heavy decline last week, sent in only
a partial report. Many of the increases

General business ia lately under
Chiistuias inft lenceo, and the general
expectation is that the aoiount o!
business that will be done will be lit
ahead of. the Christ nif sea tines the
depression set in. The demand
for moi ey at thU season, and the
large disbursements (but have to be
made with the turn ot the yettr, have
given a sharp temporary linhlneF-s to
money. The New York MraWsaid
on Saturday: "Money is much tights
er and lenders are scrntin'zing col
lator al more elonely. Imns on c.ill
were Hindu as high r.s 15 per cent to
day, anil a cnnci.lerable prrpnrtlon rf
the Rnck Exchango borrowing was
done at 10 per cent." The IlulUtin re
marks: "Opinions vary as to the
prospects of the money market during
the remainder of the month, as a dls
position to anticipate preparations for
January dividend disbursements in
creaees the firmness arising from other
canst : and It is uncertain 'how far
this will be cflst.t by gold import
tiona, 'which from presoDt prospects
are likely to be important in amount."
The Indicator Bays: "The latest ar
riva's of gold from Europe aggregate
$1,088,000, and more is to come. Gold
import will kill money stringency."
A week ago silver quoted 45) pence
an ounce; it has.been advancing since.
Oar latest quotation Is 46 pence.
which makes the silver in onr dollar
worth 73.415 omU. England, Ger
many and Austria report a better
movement in trade, but the general
depression la still such as to affect our
oreign commerce, although we have
1 d a fair increase this year aa com
pared with hut. The English home
apply of wheat proves to be lower
than had been anticipated, and a good
demand from thia side is looked for.
Congress is in session, but although
there are commercial and financial
questions of 'great moment In ques
tion, tbe reputation ot the present
. body is not such as to lead to any
amendment of commercial matters
from that source, dtrlkes are lean
prevalent and a more settled state
of things exists, but organise
. tion is proceeding at rate - that
indicates trouble in the future. The
New York Indicator has the following
"An inquirer wishes to know our
opinion ot Ohio Southern incomes.
We consider them good for much
higher figures, although the advanoo
may not come until after the holidays,

though nevor a.;td upon there, stdl
express. a livirg tans. Groat num
hers of ( nr commercial people regard
its enrctmeut ns vital to their inter
euta. OaThur.idar laHt the Now Yoik
Board of Transportation, by resolu
tion, declared tho enactment of a na
tional bankrupt law to he necessary to
prevent fraudulent and inequitable
: preferences, and also to make credits
more secure, and to moro effectually
protect the commerce ol this country
agninst the losses now 8us!aiued by
reason of the unequal and varying
8. ate ing)lvency lawn, and of the op
portunities afforded dishonest debtors
to chetv and defraud thuir creJitors.
Tbe resolution was as follows; "That
the N. w York Board of Trade and
Transportation, in recognizing aad as
senting the great nocesulty tierefor,
again respectfully nrgesupon Congress
for its Immediate norifiiduratlon the
question of enacting at its present ses
sion a uniform, just and national
bai.krupt la; aud this board ppect
fr.lly n qaea's the co-operation of all
other mnrca'itile bo'lies throughout
tho United Htit'S in securing
immediate action by Congress in
this important direction." Tbe board
further resolved that "tbe Lowell bill
suonld be unacted by Congress, inas
much as the bill, which formed the
material pattern for the British act of
)Hi3, Lai received an unquestionable
indorsement for its practicability and
worth." The call npon "other mer
cuniile boilieh" to co-operats iu secur
ing the paneaie of a national bankrupt
law, should meet with an outspoken
expression of the wiehes of mer
chants with respect to a national
bankrupt law. If State legislation, as
it px'atn, with all its discrepancies and
contradictions roocts with approval, it
would be well for trade boards and ex
changes formally to say so. If uniform
national law npon the subject is de
sired, th'we bodies should hasten to
make known their wlahos to Congres.

Mrs. Blood, Lady Colin's mother,
testified that tne engagement between
her daughter and Lord Colin was
made without ber knowledge. She de
nied that she pre sed the marriage.
She declared it untrue tbat Lord Colin
told her anything about bis health,
except that he said he bad an opera
tion pel formed. She never would cave
given her daughter in marriane to a
man in such a Icathfome conuition as
Lird Colin was if she had known it.
Witness swore that Lady Colin was in
her (witness') house Sunday, August
13, 18i3. On cross-examination Mrs.
Blood admitted that she wasanxous to
break off the marriage between defen
dant and her daughter btcause the
Campbell family treated her daughter
so badly, and added, "It was a wretch
edly bad marriage."
Witness said she saw no reason why
her daughter should not associate with
the Duke of Marlborough, who, wit

many others who got off more lightly.
Rutisell, counsel for plaintiff, prom
ised to conclude the cape for Lady
Colin Wednesday. The Judge Eaid he
would sit until midnight every day
rather than permit Hoe hearing to
linger over the holidays. Adjourned
