Wc would call the attention of our lady
readers to the advertisement in another
column of Messrs. Stryker & Co., No. 141
Lake street. From the loads of coses and
bales they have been receiving during the
past week, we should judge they had been lay
ing in on immense stock of goods for the holi
days. Their stock is very complete, and they
are holding out great inducements to pur
chasers. Read what they have to say.
Rajlkoad Accident. —The train upon the
Cincinnati and Chicago Air Line Railroad,
dne in Chicago at 9:40 p. m., ran off the track
Saturds»y evening, delaying the train some
what, but fortunately causing little damage.
E. Thomas, messenger of the American Ex
press Company, had Ids shoulder badly hurt,
and received a severe cut upon the head. He
was brought to this city and taken to the
Briggs House. No other persons were injured,

Woktjult Bestowed.— An elegant sword
was forwarded a few days since to Lieutenant
Kelson Thomasson, of the oth United States
Infantry, at Fort Leavenworth, by several of
his friends, members of the bar of this city,
as a token of their respect and good wishes.
Lieutenant Thomasson was formerly a mem
ber of the bar. Both father and son are in the
army. The gallant conduct of the father at
Bull Run will be readily remembered. It is
sufficient to say the son is “ a chip of the old
Dr. Hunter and Inhalation. —To-day,
we publish another letter from this well known
physician. The great revolution which has
taken place in the treatment of affections of
the throat and lungs is mainly attributable to
the free discussion of the subject by the dis
tinguished brothers, Drs. K. & J. Hunter, of
New York. The great diminution in the offi
cial mortality bills of that city, following their
extensive practice, is in itself an incontro
vertible argument. Dr. James Hunter is now
on a visit to our city, and may be consulted at
No. 11 Adams street.
Winchell’s ExTEETArs'.'tENT.— Wincliell,
tbo inimitable, gives an entertainment at
Bryan on Monday evening. .WincheU’s
reputation as a inimic and delineator of droll
characters is ■well established- There is noth
ing of the low or mlgarinthc entertainments,
and his every word, action and look, hears
the impress of gentility and good breeding,
hcncc he always raccecds in drawing around
him the best classes of society; although his
entertainments arc of a comic or laugluible
character, his audience can scarcely fail to
learn many lessons of a practical and useful
character from his humorous descriptions of
real life.
War Effects. —The rebels are reaping the
f rails of their wickedness in more ways than
one. Before the war the New Tork Life In
surance Company had about six millions dol
lare at risk upon citizens of the South. The
greater part of these liabilities are now to the
credit of Northern policy holders in this Com*
pany. The citizens of this city seem to ap
preciate the advantages of insuring their lives,
the agents ot the New York life Insurance
Company having written over one hundred
policies in Octoqcr and November alone. This
institution presents many claims upon the at
tention of the community. It stands third as
being the oldest company in America, and of
fers a “ten year plan/’ by which an,iudivid
ual can secure a policy which in ten years will
be paid vp in full , and dividends declared
thereon during the life of the assured. Pre
miums paid on policies of this class arc not
forfeited. Foa instance, after two years' pay
ments on SI,OOO the Company will issue to the
assured a paid-up policy of S2OO, after three
years, S3OO, and so on.
We call attention to the advertisement of
Messrs. Olcott & Boyd, in another column of
this paper.
The Cueist Cstuck Fair.—The ladies

Alleged Labcbny as Bailee.—Colonel
Charles Northrup, a well known citizen of St.
Louis, was arrested in this city, Saturday, upon
tbe charge of larceny as bailee. The com
plainant in the case is Major Platt, a United
States Paymaster at St. Louis, who.in his ap
plication for the warrant, made a complaint
substantially a® follows; A dry goods dealer
In St. Louis, pamed Ellis, was indebted to tbe
firms of Middleton & C?-. and Ciaflin, Mellen
& Co., of New York, for a joist account of
#2,900. They sent their claims for collection,
the former to CoL Northrup, and the latter to
Major Platt, as their agents. The agents
placed their riaims in the hands of an attor
ney named Hale. Ellis, In the meantime, bad
gripped bis slock from St. Louis to some point
in the southern part of this State. Itswherc
abonts having been discovered, Hale com
menced an attachment suit against Ellis, re
covered judgment, and having bid in the prop
ertv left it in possession of CoL Northrop,
nntii it should be disposed of pro rata to tbe
proper parties. The charge made by Major
Platt is that Northrup has brought the prop
erty, valued at some SSOO. to this city, with
the* intention Of selling it. The case is a very
Intricate one throughout, and involves some
nice legal points. The defence deny the
charge in toto , and are confident of developing
testimony wbichwill acquit the accused- The
defendant had a partial bearing before the
police magistrates on Saturday, which will be
further continued on Tuesday.

Appointment of Post Surgeon at Camp
In the absence oi any Post Surgcoa at
Camp Douglas since its organization, Dr. J.
V. Z. Blaney, of tills city, has filled the situa
tion temporarily, and filled it with great
credit. Doctor B. tendered his services to
the Colonel of the post gratuitously, and since
his acceptance, has labored assiduously and
skillfully in the Sanitary Department of the
camp, rendering most efficient aid in the erec
tion of the Hospital and in its subsequent ad
ministration. The rapid accumulation of du
ties incumbent upon him, however, rendered
it impossible for him longer to fulfil the duties
of the situation he had occupied so creditably
and usefully. Col. Tucker was notified to
this effect on Saturday, immediately tele
graphed to Springfield, and received an an
swer the same day, appointing Dr. Edmund
Andrews, of this city, Post Suigeon. The
appoiutmeut in every particular, is most for
tunate. Dr. Andrews brings to his new posi
tion, unusual medical information and surgi
cal skill, the results of long practice and ex
perience and will prove Invaluable in the man

Report of the Minister at Large for
the Tear Ending Not. Ist, 1861*
To the President and Trustees of the As
sociation for the Support or the Min
istry at Large
Gentlemen: The report of my labors for this
year embraces —first, the care of destitute
and neglected children; second, the oversight
and management of our different schools;
third, the regular and systematic assistance of
the poor.
First, I have directed my time and care to
destitute and neglected children, providing
them, as they most need, with homes, places,
schooling and clothes.
The Orphan Asylum, the Half-Orphan Asy
lum, the Home of the Friendless, and the dif
ferent Catholic institutions, are all at work
in this field, and have mainly cared for the
smaller children whonccdhomcs. _ Our atten-
tion has therefore been directed chiefly to chil
dren from sis to fifteen years of age, who
needed assistance of this kind. I find on our
books one hundred and forty-nine who have
been sent to places or homes in the city and
country during the vear, of whom seventy
nine were bovs, and seventy were girls; be
sides these, there were a number whom it was
not needful to register.
These children were partly clothed, as they
needed it or as wc had the clothing; they are
the cldldren of poor parents, or half orphans,
or entire orphans, or children of unfortunate
Wc have kept open our Sunday School with
an attendance of Trom eighty in summer to
one hundred and fifty in winter. The school
is now flourishing under the very admirable
superintendence of Mr. Bice, and the children
arc of the class most desirable for a Sunday
school—those who need most to leam the
simple conditions of a good beginning in this
life; that is what we try to teach them, Wc
reward them with shoes and garments in pref
erence to books, and so far as we are able, we
try to follow their fortunes, and lighten the
burdens of their parents, where there is a
small income and a large family, or sickness or
misfortune or sin.
We have kept a free night school during the
last winter, from November 19th to March 2d,
for all children who are employed during the
dav, and for adults of all ages. In this school
wc have five paid teachers, and the number of
pupils ranged from eighty to one hundred and
twenty, their ages ranging from ten years to
fifty-five or sixty, the proportion of males to
femalcsbeing as three lotwo. The sc pupils were
of all the more common nationalities, includ
ing some black men and boys, who were excel
lent scholars and made fair progress. The school
was very successful. We had also an after
noon school under one teacher, for women
and girls, who were prevented by their occu
pations from going to the public schools. In
this school, the common branches and sewing
were taught by an excellent lady teacher, ana
the pupils made good progress.
During all the year an office has been kept
open from one till four o'clock, where wc have
met the poor, who have come to ns for every
possible purpose. I find on the books over
eight hundred notes of applications from men,
women and children, seeking assistance or
The wants arc diversified beyond all concep-
tion—wood, clothing, shoes, food, rent, coun
sel, comfort, directions, railroad passes—every
possibleform of poverty gets to our door. Some
we can and do relieve; some wc cannot. In the
year wc have given about three hundred gar
ments, new and old, a hundred pairs of shoes,
and rubbers, besides some worn ones, nearly
fifty dollars in money that was sent to me for
various cases of extreme suffering; bed cloth
ing and a number of other articles.
The Minister has still tried to befriend unfor
tunate women, and believes he has not failed
to do some good, but it is the hardest of all
his tasks to make sure of.
In the last winter we took up the Kansas re
lief work, and collected a large sum of money
which was paid to the Treasurer. Wc collect
ed also, a very large case of clothing and other
articles, whicu were duly forwarded.
In the spring the Minister, together with
two other city missionaries, visited the fami
lies of soldiers who had gone to the war.
Your minister took the West Division, and
kept on as long as he was needed. Besides
this, he has made visits, as he has found time,
to the homes of the poor, and tried every
where to eaiw out the idea embodied in hia
mission, to be* “a present help in the time of
trouble.” How far he has succeeded, it is not
for him to say.
It should be recorded amongthc labors of
the year, that your Minister spent ten weeks
in visiting the military camps along the Poto
mac and'in Missouri, in the service of the
| Sanitary Commission; the details of his labors
in that‘deportment, need not be given in this
report, as he was not under the pay of this
ministry, nor strictly in its service, though in
a more general sense, he was still laboring as
a immsitr at large. During his absence, the
duties ot the ministry were ably and faith
fully performed by Miss £. P. Kewcome, so
far as was practicable.
With respect, Robert Collter,
0 „ Minister at Large.
Chicago, Nov. 2«, °
The work of a day, a -winter's day, in the
Ministry at Large, is so varied, ang apparently
so aimless that I determined to note for one

The Board or Supervisor*,
The Board of Supervisors held their fifth
session of the present term on Saturday, and
the following'business of importance was
transacted, in the morning, vhe Judiciary
Committee reported in favor of the adoption
of a resolution requiring assessors to levy a
tax upon dogs. The report was accepted-
An animated discussion followed upon the
subject of bailiffs’ foes, called out by the re-
port of the Committee on Jail and Jail Ac
counts, who recommended the allowance of
bills and claims to tbc amount of $1,329.45,
During the discussion it was stated that the
county had paid $22,000 during the last year
for Jury fees.
The Board then proceeded to draw a list of
jurors for the Circuit and Superior Courts,
which occupied the larger part of the day.
The following resolution was offered by Mr.
Dunlap, of Leyden, but no action was taken
Eesdted. That whereas, an article appeared in a
morning paper, charging the Coroner with bring
ing suit agamet the propeller which was blown up
at orncar Clark street bridge, for the expenses of
Inquest, &c., and that an attachment was levied
upon a quantity of old iron in the bands of the
CriHtotUau.. who ha#, we are informed, a bill of
$2,000 against Cook County,
Stfdttd. That the Coroner be requested tocome
forward and make a statement of the whole matter.
The resolution caused considerable sensa-
lion in the Board, which was doubly increased
by a motion to adjourn until Tuesday at ten
o’clock, evidently for the design of investiga
ting the hill of the Custodian, an object hardly
necessary, as will be perceived from the follow
ing letter, which, though not read before the
Board, we print in this connection:
Chicago, Dec. 7,1861.
Wm. Jatnee, Eta.-, Coroner:
Dear Sir;— My charges os Custodian for the
City of Chicago, for service and custody of the
property put into my hands by the Sheriff, in the
case of James vs. Helmer, being an attachment on
a lot of machinery belonging to the propeller
Globe, and now lying on Hale’slJock, are $3 to the
present time. Very respectfully.
Your obedient servant,
James Long, Custodian.
After several remonstrances upon the part
of the members, who insisted that the legiti
mate business of the term was finished, Dr.
Gibbs called for the ayes and nays with the
following result: Ayes 23, nays 16; and the
Board stood adjourned until Tuesday at two
o’clock. _
Dr. Hnnter, or New York, on Dip*
therm and Bronchitis,
To the Editors of the Chicago Tribune.
Gentlemen —In my last letter I save a brief
description of the organa of respiration, and
explained the nature and treatment of sore
throat. It may be ■well to add, for the guid
ance of those who suffer from sore throat, that
they arc liable not only to the extension of
their disease to the lungs, but also to that
dreaded modem scourge diptheria, which is
now prevailing to an alarming extent oxer the
whole of Europe and America. It is from
cases of simple sore throat that this malady
recruits Us fatal ranks. Few, who have not
carefully observed the effects of disease of the |
throat on the general health, can have any
idea of the loss of bodily vigor which a very
slight disease of the fauces produces.
In diptheria the blood is impregnated with a
specific poison, for which the protoxide of ni
trogen is the antidote. In the treatment of
this disease, therefore, the physician should
direct the patient to inhale the protoxide from
a suitable apparatus, until its effects are mani
fested in considerable exhilaration, and after
an hour’s intermission chlorine should be in
haled freely to check the tendency to disor
ganization in the mucous membrane. Under
the combined action of these remedies a few
hours arrest the disease and save the life ofthe
patient. The oxygen of the protoxide purifies
the blood, while the antiseptic properties of
the chlorine arrest the tendency to sloughing
and gangrene. Besides these means, the
throat should be washed every few hours with
a strong solution of chlorinated soda, applied
with a pharyngeal syringe. Treated In this
manner, diptheria is a simple disease and will
not prove fatal in one case out of a hundred.
Let us now pass from diseases of the throat
to the consideration of bronchitis.
The term bronchitis has hitherto been com
monly applied to diseases of the throat, and
medical writers have too often confirmed this
popular error. The reader will bear in mind
that the bronchial tubes are not in the throat,
but in the lungs. "When I speak of bronchi
tis, therefore, I speak of a disease of the lungs,
and not of the throat. The vital importance
of this distinction will be seen when we come
to discuss its proper treatment.
Bronchitis, then is a disease of the lining or.
mucous membrane of the bronchial tubes ram
ifying the substance of the lungs. This lining
or membrane is very sensitive to every exter
nal or foreign influence, and is hence liable to
become irritated by sudden changes of weath
er, by impure air, by the fine particles of mat- |
ter which fill the atmosphere of workshops, !
or float upon the wind in dusty streets, by the
hundred irritating causes which meet us in al
most every place. This irritation, from what
ever cause, leads to inflammation of the mem
brane, deranges its healthy action, changes the
character of its secretions, and sets up a train
of symptoms to which we apply the name,
In chronic bronchitis there is sometimes a
slight fever towards evening. The patient ex
periences a shortness of breath on exercising,
and has a slight but continued sense of op
pression in the chest. The cough or expecto
ration may diminish, or entirely disappear dur
ing the summer, but manifest them
selves again on the return of winter,
when the expectoration becomes Increased and
often yellow. Hectic fever may then super
vene, with night sweats and rapid wasting of
the flesh and strength, and the patient dies
with all the symptoms of pulmonary consump
It is very common to meet this disease in a
milder form, in persons who speak of it as a
“winter cough.” It comcson each winter,
and as regularly subsides during the summer;
but in every succeeding recurrence, it mani
fests itself in greater severity; and the recov
ery in the following summer is not so com
plete. This form of bronchitis, if neglected,
will as surely destroy life (and, treated in the
usual manner, it is incurable) as consumption
itself. The mucus membrane, sooner or later
becomes altered in structure, and pours forth
a matter ■which has all the qualities of pus.
Hectic fever supervenes, and the disease tends
slowlv, but surely, to a fatal termination.
Another form of bronchitis is peculiar to
middle Ufc and old age. It is distinguished
by the quantity and character of the matter
expectorated. ‘Usually there are two fits of
coughing in the day—one on awakening from
sleep in the morning, the other in the even
ing. There is considerable difficulty of breath
ing while the paroxysms of coughing last; but
it passes off as soon as the lungs are freed
from the viscid secretion. The patient is
feeble; he may, however, live and attend to
light duties for several years. But the coun
tenance gradually assumes a pale bluish, tint,
the body wastes, the blood becomes thin, and
death ensues, apparently from the constant
drain kept up by the discharge from the lunge.
Some patients die from exhaustion in five or
six months; but wc have known others to
survive for as many years.
There is still another form of this disease
called “dry bronchitis.” The essential
character of dry bronchitis consists of chronic
inflammation, attended by a thickening of
the mucus membrane, by which the air tubes
are diminished in size, and also in the secretion
of a dense, glutinous kind of matter, of a
greenish or bluish-white color, by which they
are still further obstructed. The smaller bron
chial tubes are often entirely closed, and occa
sionally a tube of very considerable size be
‘ comes'scaled up by this matter. This affec
tion is so common in this climate, that in
some degree, it is probable two out of every
three suffer from it. “In the most favored
parts of France,” says Laenncc, “ tally one
half of those arrived at adult age, will be
found, on careful examination, to present evi
dence of a thickening of some portion of the
mucus membrane of the lunge. ’
The symptoms of dry bronchitis arc not
marked by severity. It is the most insidious
of pulmonary complaints. The subject of it
is conscious* only of being short-breathed,
when ascending an elevation or attempting to
run. When a large portion of the lung is in
volved, a sense of oppression is experienced
after meals, and on very slight exertion. By
some, this oppression is referred to the oppo
site side of the chest to that on which the dis
ease is situated, or to a remote part of the
same side, or even to the stomach. After a
time, difficulty of breathing comes on, and
continues for several days—the patient com
plaining of tightness in the chest, which is
relieved by cough and the expectoration of a
tough, jelly-like substance. The cough
by which this matter is raised is a
mere rasping effort- to clear the
throat, and may probably not occur
more than once or twice daily, and almost un
consciously to patients themselves. On in
quiring if they have a cough, they will, almost
without exception, answer “No!” Yet, dur
ing your conversation, they will, perhaps,
hack, and raise a little jelly-like mucus half
a dozen times. At intemls, the cough is more
severe, and comes on in paroxysms, when it
is too commonly regarded as simply “ner
vous.” If the stomach be at all deranged, it
is fashionable to regard it as a mere “stomach
cough,” or as being caused by “liver dis
ease,” while, in fret, the derangements of the
stomach, liver, kidneys, and the uterine func
tion, which exist, arc but so nfeny conse
quences of this very condition of the lungs.
There is something* so gratifying In being as
sured by the family physician that there is
“no danger of consumption;” that “this
cough is a mere trifle, and will speedily pass
away, if only left to itself,” that it is not sur
prising the flattered patient entirely overlooks
the important feet that no careful examination
of the lungs has been made, to determine the
health or disease of this organ; that tins grati
fying opinion, therefore, isfoundedonnqthing
and, reduced to its intrinsic merits, is simply
tampering with human life.
Most “coughs of long standing,” unattend
ed bv free expectoration, are caused either by
this condition of the bronchial tubes, or by in
cipient tubercles in the lungs. The ‘‘neg
lected cold,” \rt*ich so often proves the herald
of consumption, is but {mother variety of the ,
The frequency of thisfonnof bronchitis —its |
slow, insidious, and treacherous progress, and j
the disastrous consequences to which It so
often leads, should awaken from their lethargy
all who are nureing dry coughs of long stand- ,
ine, in the vain hope of growing out of them.
However slight and apparently unimportant
such coughs may seem, they lead on, by sure
gradations, to a premature grave. i
In addition to these varieties of bronchitis— I
all of which, it will be well for you to remem
ber, have their scat in the mucous membranes
of the air tubes of the lungs; there are several ,
others. Of these, wc have a form of plastic in
flammation, characterized by a kind offr isc
membrane forming on the inside of the tubes.
Again, we have the very opposite to this state,
namely, an enlargement or dilation of the air
tubes. This occurs in several forms. The
bronchial tubes, in one lobe, or a whole lung,
may be enlarged uniformly, or they _ may be
merely swollen out at the extremity, m a glo
bular form; or there may be alternate contrac
tions and dilations along the tube®.
In addition to these, wc have ulcerations ot
the mucous membrane of the lungs, resembl
ing and of the same character as ulcerations
in the throat.
Teea.tmknt.—lf you have read carefully
what I have said on the scat of bronchitis,
viz; that it is within the lungs, you will readi
ly understand how inadequate for its cure
‘ must be any remedy which docs not penetrate
the lungs as deeply as the disease itself Ap
plications of “nitrite of silver” to the throat
are utterly useless, since they : do not reach
the foundation of the evil. Here, yon see the
consequence of miscalling a disease. ' Tour
physician informs yon that your affliction Is
bronchitis; and straightway you submit to the
cruel torture olhariag CMBtieappUsi “wct
second or third day to your turoat. If the
unnecessary sufihnag you thus undergo were
the only consequence which sprungK-oni it, It
would be of less importance; but the disease
within your lungs is all this time gate mg a
firmer hold; the mucous membrane is becom
ing thickened, and' the smaller bronchial tubes
closed up. These obstructions go on in
creasing until sufficient air cannot- be drawn
through the air tubes to produce the change
in the blood from venous to artcriaL It is
the object of respiration to change the blood
from a dark to a bright red color. This
change is produced in the lungs by the
air wc breathe* and can not occur unless
it is received in sufficient quantity. "When
considerable obstruction exists in the. bron
chial tube, the carbon which constitutes the
impurity of the blood is not wholly removed,
but a part is retained and sent again through
the system—impeding the circulation, irrita
ting the brain and nervous system, and de
ranging digestion. Under this condition of
the blood, tubercles are deposited in the longs.
There is no warning given of the fearful
change which is taking place. Without pain,
without cough, without expectoration, the
seed of this most insidious and mortal disease
is sown, and soon brings forth its fruit in the •
melancholy changes which mark the progress
of consumption. Thus consumption arises as
a consequence of neglecting or maltreating
bronchitis by placing reliance on applications
to the throat, or palliatives through the stom
ach. It is a grand dcsideratnm in the treat
ment of all diseases to get the remedy direct
to the organ or part affected- Wc use washes,
injections, blisters, purgatives, and. so forth,
on principle. In pulmonary diseases the
same rule holds good. But how are we to ap
ply it? We cannot use solids or fluids, for
this is an air cavity. No; but by inhalation
we can reach, thoroughly and naturally, all
diseases situated within the air tubes and cells
of the lungs.
What, then, is Inhalation ? The word itself
merely means the act of inspiring, or drawing
breath. In medical parlance, it means a mode
of administering medicines by breathing them.
Thus wc say, “I inhale a medicine”—we
would say, “I take a medicine ” —the differ
ence being simply that the one is Inhaled or
breathed, while the other is swallowed. lam
thus explicit in order to show that all medi
cines inhaled into the lungs are not alike, any
more than all medicines taken Into the stom
ach—and hence, that the benefits to be de
rived from inhalations, must depend upon the
experience and skill of the physician who pre
scribes them. I should have deemed this ex
planation unnecessary, but for the fact that
many who write to me regarding the treat
ment. appear to have got the erroneous Idea
that instead of being a mode of
practice, or administration of remedies, is
some specific remedy, alike applicable to the
most opposite forms of pulmonary disease.
To make It such, is to degrade It to the base
level of quackery. It can never be honestly
employed without a full knowledge of all the
symptoms and peculiarities of each case, and
tbc adaptation of the remedies accordingly.
The first object of treatment is to cleanse
the air-tubes of the lungs, by expectorant in
halations. 'Having obtained this object, wc
next seek to allay the irritation on which the
secretion depends—to soothe and heal the in-
I flamed membrane. The manner of adminis
tering medicines by inhalation, in bronchitis,
is as follows: The inhaler, which is made of
glass, and holds about a pint of fluid, is half
filled with cold, warm, or hot water, according
to the nature of the case. The medicines pre
scribed fora dose arc then added, and the
patient directed to inhale gently, but deeply,
into the lungs, being careful to expand the
chest well, without straining or violence. The
fluid being medicated thoroughly impregnates
the air with its properties. Each inhalation
is continued for five, ten, or fifteen minutes,
as may be necessary, and taken three times a
day, before meals’ or twice a day, on rising
and retiring. In this manner every effect that
can be produced by medicine is obtained in
the lungs, and with a degree of certainty une
qualled. By simply varying the medicines put
into the fluid, the vapor is rendered soothing,
.expectorant or healing, at pleasure. "When
faithfully and properly carried out, this treat
ment will rarely disappoint the patient of a
speedy and radical cure.

The weather to-day has been abominable, and
transactions have therefore - been limited. The
week closes on a very comfortable money market,
and trade of all kinds is working smoothly. Bank
ers take all the first-dags bills that are offered at.
the legal rate, viz: 10 per cent.
In exchange there is comparatively little doing,
though the aggregate sales, even on a dull day,
amount to a very large sum. The ruling figure Is
H ; but the three Indiana brandies still sell to cus
tomers at 3a'. The baying price is H\ tbongb
bankers like to get round lots at 1-5 when they
can. As soon as the weather becomes cold, the
pork trade win materially increase the supply,
when we should not be surprised to see It recede
to the old rate.
Gold does not sell largely. The haying price la
selling, 1 per cent, premium on
email lots.
It is understood by financial people that the
forthcoming report ofthc Secretary of the Treasury
will present the banking system, the paper money
system, and the Government policy in respect to
them in a light that will fasten the attention of
the country upon it. The claim of the Govern
ment to supply the circulating medium of all kinds
will he presented, impressively, on the ground of
both principle and expediency, and on constitu
tional right necessity. No report
from that or any other Department of the Govern

It is expected that the Comptroller will be ena

towards the winding up of the remainder of the

No personal bonds have been changed. As the

three successive administrations, is deemed by
some insufficient, the Comptroller, with the assist

new one, which will obviate all difficulties.

Movements of Produce in New York.
[From the New York Journal of Commerce.. sth.]
We have now compiled our usual monthly tables,
showing the movements in leading articles of pro
duce at this port since January Ist. There has
been, of course, a great falling off in the cotton
and naval stores, but the great feature in the re
ceipts of New York is the increase in flour, wheat,
and corn. The arrivals of flour, notwithstanding
the cutting off 1 from Southern ports, show a gain
of over one million barrels upon last year; and
one and a half million barrelsupon the correspond
ing total for 1859. The receipts of wheat are
eiaht times as large as for the same time in 3859,
and show a gain of eleven million bushels upon
last vear’s figures. The receipts of com have in
creased in the same proportion. There has been a
gain from last rear in meat provisions, with the
exception of beef, which has fallen off. The tabic
of receipts will repay a careful study:

The exports have continued upon an enormous
scale, and the figures herewith presented will com
mand especial attention. Reckoned the flour in
wheat, there have been shipped since the first of
Januarv fifty-one million bushels of hreadstufls to
foreign ports. The gain in annual products, it
will Be seen, is even more startling. We annex

Considering the advanced period of the season,
trade is active, with a disposition even to specu
late in domestic goods, winch have an upward ten
dencvln price. Black and fedprints continue inac
tive 'demand, and are sold to arrive in large quan
tities. Other styles are rejected. Bleached shirt
ings and sheetings are much wanted. The lower
qualities are scarce. Brown goods are in light
stock. Drills are steady. Canton flannels arc
very active. Woolen goods show more activity
than cottons. Fancy cassimercs are In demand.
Spring stvles are also selling, stripes being more
fevered than plaids. Silk mixtures are in good re
quest. The stock of goods is light, and the rax>sy
Jor the spring trade Is expected to be defiefeut.
Cloths and beavers are scarce and wanted. Cloak
ings are very scarce. The demand for goods is
tuoatlv from the near-by and citv trade. In foreign
goods there is little doing, but prices are firmer, as
stocks are much reduced. JBritisn dress goods, espe
cially purple and Magenta delaines, sell readily and
well. Blue Cobuijrs are also a quick sale. The sup
ply is, however, limited. Millinery goods arc In
go'od stock, with but a slight demand, limited
mostly to velvets, which are improving inprice.
Silk velvets are very scarce. High-colored and
black ribbons sell well, bnt other colors are doll.
Dress silks are very quiet. Heavy goods, such as
seal skins, arc wanted for cloakings. Other kinds
of men's woolens arc neglected. Delaines and
merinos have a limited sale. Shawls are not so ac
tive. and prices are again lower, except for the
Check patterns, which sell quick oh arrival. Blank
ets are active. Auction sales are drawing to a
close, and consist mostly of millinery goods, which
sell at a low price.
The imports for the wcekarclight, principally of
army geode—blankets, army woolens, and woolen
hose and yarns.
Prices of goods are advancing in the foreign
markets, following the increased cost of the raw
material, and with the prospect of an increased
amount of duty on imported goods, there is little
probability of an adequate supply of goods to meet
the wants of consumers in the s'pring. The home
manufacturers find themselves taxed to the utmost
to produce goods equal to the demand. Prices,
therefore, must rise when the spring demand sets
in. as both woolen and cotton goods will be short
of the demand. Wool has advanced considerably
in all our home markets. The value of the foreign
goods in bond amounts to $15,800,000.

alarming Decrease in the Farm Pro
duce and litre Stock of Ireland.
Mr. Donnelly, the Registrar General of Ire
land, lately issued one of his abstracts upon
the agriculture of the country. From it we find
that there is a decrease of 38,878 acres under pota
toes, a decrease of 9,175 acres in mangel andbeet
root, and a decreaseof nearly the same amount in
vetches andrape. There are 15,285 more acres of
turnips, «nd 7.135 acres of cabbage this year than
last, so that the net diminution in the extent of
“green crops ** Is 86,974 acres. The whole amount
planted was 1.570,608 acres, There is also a de
crease of 47,969 acres of meadow and clover.
Hence we get the following general summary:
Decrease in cereal crops
Decrease in green crops
Decrease in meadow and clover.
Increase in flax.
Total decrease oflaad under crops in’6l.. 81,373
There is also a large decrease in the number of
lire stock in Ireland this year as compared with
1880, and that again was marked by a very largo
diminution compared with 1859. This year we
(Irish paper remarks) hare fewer horses by 5,983,
fewer cattle by 188,816, and fewerpigs by 173,085.
There is the night increase of 1,889 m tho number
of sheep. Thus, upon the average of rates assum-.
Ed by toe census commissioners of 1841, we hate
less value in lire stock by £1,101,845 than we had
in 1880. ThJa lamentable falling ofT-ln'llve stock
is attributed to two successive bad harvests. How
great has been the-losa4n production may be esti
inrrted.br a single Item. In 1860 we had Hewer tons
of potatoes by 1*668.143, orneariy one-half of the
entire quantity raised. This must have been a
grevious loss to the poor cotters, who endeavor to
make out the rent by keeping a cow, two or three
pigs or poultry.
The whole quantity of Onondaga Salt inspected
from January Ist to Nov. 30th last, amounts to
7,1X75,792 bushels—an increase over last year of
1,531.596 bushels.
