THB BUILDINGS AND COVERED WAYS. The new nulldings are the station or central house, and baggage rooms on both flanks some distance from the central.

The openings and corn ers are ornamented In ted sandstone sills and llutels.and the finish of all the exterior follows the styles adopted by the railroads geuerally. for neat and substantial structures. The inte rlor is finished in hard wood, natural pine, oiled, and is inlaid In panels. The roofllng Is slate and tin. All the Interior finish Is In oil— the exterior dark colors in paint.

Staunton >Int-l_tir». spectator Off tea. Staunton. Va., December SI, 18s.. The trade of tbe pait week, embracing th* holidays, was. as a matter of courte, of small compass. During tho week prey ious, there was more firmness generally lv tbe larger een . ters of trade for wheat which gave tone for the time being, to-vards an advance In quotations. , A brisker export demand and movement to ! meet It, caused that feeling. Russia and India are short In their exports which will require heavier draft* from thi United States in supplying purchasing coun tries. In this connection, the Liverpool corn Trade News thus summarizes the situation. "The general opinion at the present time. Is that when European stock* have deo* eased,the American stocks will In no way prevent an advance in prices. It is also to be noticed tbat speculators hitherto limited their operations to rye, but the already high price* of this arti cle will, we think, soon transfer speculative attention to wheat." We see nothing upon which to base .nota tions higher than they are for wheat In Its general condition, though one or two small ■ lots which had received extra care In cleaning sold at two cents more. This reminds us to renew the admonition tbat, It pays well to have wheat in perfect ordar. To-day we saw a sample offered, the grata of whioh was excel lent, bat co_t_ta.l Impurities which a fan would have quickly thrown out. If it had been clean, the merchant would have bought It at 79 cents; a* it was, be only offered 72 cent* The weight of the impurities at the rate of }2 per bnshel would not have yielded more than ' 2 cents, Tho clear loss in consequence of no wheat fan on that producer's farm was from 4 to 5 ots per bushel on his wheat. - There are no changes In wholesale grocery lives. Butter and eggs are plentiful. Poultry Is in better demand. Turkeys sell at 10 cents per pound gros», and 12 cents dressed- Chicken, average 20 cants a-plece, and bring 8 oents ncr pound dressed. Dressed pork continues In lerge supply at f_ 50 per hundred. The Quotations ar» wholesale,, not ricail,] Co vii fry Produce. Bacon —country cured.
