Stocks The stock market today, in conse
quence of tomorrow being Cbrtstutas, was
excessively dull and without special feature.
A large proportion of the broVera were ab
sent and those who attended the board gave
na much attention to the buffoonery,! usual
at this lime, as thoy did to tradirg in ati'cks.
The transactions were nearly monopolised
by four stocks, Jerey Central, New Eng
land, Reading and St. Paul. The former
was conspicuously strong in the early trad
ing upon considerable covering of shorts,
but in no othur stouk was there an impo'tant
movement during f.e entire day, with the
single exeep ion ot Tc nessee Coal, vhich
rosu 2 per oanr... but afterwards lost the ad
vance The strike on tho Ljuiv llo and
Nashville mlvtrsely arTttctod the stock in the
early morning, but the aliirht loss a'tor the
opening wa later recovered. Tbe oredrg
was weak, declinos Irorn lust eveuing'a final
prices ranging up t 'U per eoi t., the latter
in New Lnglnrd. Tlior." were some fu'ther
slight declines in the early tru lini', in which
Lnuisvlle and t-H.hviile was the lender.
Therally which followed was led byJtrsay
Central, which quickly reached the highest
prioeof tho day. slter which the market
dropped into a dull and littloss state, in
which the (Itioluciions were measured by
vory small fi actions, and in no ease did tlie
pojccss any aignitincpfi. The marketlinally
closed as it hul been throughout the day, ex
tro.nely dull and sto.idy The busi
ness dono was the smallest for the
year, amounting to o.' ly 79,814 shares. Rul
Toad bond' were slightly moreattive on sulea
ot 81,04'.,000. Tho improvement, however,
was entirely duo to the increased trading in
Donver and Rio Grande 4s, in which the
aales were 824.1,100. Tbe only soec'al feature
waa the advance in bbonandoab Valley firsts
open the decision of the matter which
invalidates a large uortion ol the issue. In
tho remainder ot ihi list thia mine dullness
and apathy prevalent in the slock mariet
wai noticeable, and prices shows alight
changes only.
