FRUITS DESIDERATED.
TTc find the following in tlie National
Intelligencer in reply to an article in the
TRIBUNE: •
Now, If it be true, as the Chicago Tribune af
firms, (and as no conservative denies) that slavery
la going to** a general wreck as fast as time and
thcruslrof events* in God's providence can cany
it,” why should onr radical friends give themsdro*

tives who can propcrlyjmt this reproachful ques

by overshooting the mark with 44 paper proclama
tions” dpaving men to be free when they were
not free, and millions of whom are still held in
bondage. And by thus seeking to get ahead of
timeTtfae laws of nature, and of God's providence,
thev have incurred the usual penalty of such im
prudence and presumption—that of making their
- miscalculations only the more signal in the eyes of
the world and of postponing the realization of
their wishes. The proclamation of January Ist,
lECS, declaring the slaves of Alabama “notr, hence
forth, and forever free,” was most palpably onto
‘ochronism, because in advance or 4 * lime,’* “the
laws of war,” and of “ God’s providence.” And
the fatuity of thus seeking to get the start of Time
nnd Providence' was never more strikingly illus
trated than in the demonstrated inefficacy of.that
edict, When the slaves of Alabama ore free it
will be by tbc “normal working” of those causes
which every qgpscrvative accepts in nil their legit
imate consequences, and which, but for the imps- -
tience and presumption of radical theorists, would
have sooner borne the fruits desiderated by all
good patriots and lovers of humanity.
The difference between ns and the
Intelligencer seems to he in what we meant
hy the laws of Nature, and of 'Wax, and of
God’s providence and their normal work*
ing. "We may perhaps be able to make the
IntdUgeneer understand us, and itself more
fully, hy asking what it holds respecting
another Proclamation, dated April' 15,
18C1, commanding certain persons, “to dis
perse and retire peaceably to their respect
ive abodes, within twenty days!” It is
most three years once that Proclamation
was issued, and does the IntdUgeneer not
see that “ the fatuity of thus seeking to get
the start of Time and Providence was nev
er more strikingly illustrated than in the
demonstrated inefficiency of that edict!”
The IntdUgeneer seems to hold that the
M normal working” of a Proclamation is
to execute itself; that if it docs not accom
plish all it commands by its own inherent
efficacy ,U ceases to he normal, and becomes
presumptuous, fatuous and all wrong. Did
not the President, according to the
Intelligencer plainly overshoot the mark, in
seeking to quicken operations with his pa
per proclamation commanding the rebels to
disperse? Is it not just as fatuous as the
other? On the contrary wehold thatthefirst
Proclamation was normal, and rightly fol
lowed uply the “ normal working ” ofpow
dcr and hall, will in time effect its object
"We also hold that the Proclamation of
Emancipation followed up in the same
way, by the “normal working,” of the pro
per forces, Trill not “get the start of Time
and Providence T in the least, hut will
surely he in at the death of Slaveiy, with
time and providence. _ *
As to the “enunciation of the same
sound philosophy in this modem verse,”
“Straight forward goes

we most say we are a little confused. If
the Intelligencer means to declare that it
goes against the war, because cannon balls
shatter things and hurt, we can appreciate
its tenderness and gentleness of spirit xfcich

would be glad. So that on the subject of
cannon balls and lightning, and their nor
mal working, we are far apart When the
cannon ball goes straight, and hits the re
bellion square, “shattering that it may
reach and shattering what it reaches,” then,
in cur opinion, it bears “ the fruits desider
ated by all good patriots'and lovers of hu
manity.”
We are struck with the, foot that in
quoting from Schiller the InU&geneer let
one of “ the ■weighty lines” drop out, and it
has fallen on its own toes. It is next to
the last, and reads thus in the original?

HUD. STEVENS*
In making up the committees for the
House of Representatives it is reported
that Thad. Stevens will again be placed at
the head of the Committee of Ways and
Means. If our advice could reach and
influence the Speaker we should ask him
to make some other selection.. When
Grow was elected Speaker he made Ste
vens chairman of that Committee, and
also modestly stuffed most of the other im
portant committees with Pennsylvania
members. He almost ignored the West
Stevens proved himself to he wretchedly
qualified for their leader, and certainly
will be no better hereafter* His op
position to Western interests was
so bitter and relentless that he employed
dishonest ™ against llipm. TTta great
age and natural acerbity of disposition
render him on improper person for House
leader. Bis infirmities of temper and
health, petulence, egotism, and chronic
jealousy of the West, all combines to unfit
' him for the position of rinrinwap of the
great and important committee of Ways
and Means. A younger and healthier
man, one of broad National views, and
equanimity of temper, is required. On the
question jof human Freedom, Mr. Stevens
is true and steadfast, but on national mea
sures of finance, revenue, currency, and
improvements, his mental vision is bounded

.. The Ecv.Dr. Elliott, of .St, Bonis; a promi
nent and influential dirine, writes a letter to
nn Eastern •friend, whereof the following
extract appears In the Boston DaQy Adver
tiser :
St. Louis, Oct SO, 18CS.
Ton cannot possibly .make me a radical,
except in the most conservative stylo; bat 1
can meet the exigencies as they rise, and I
cannot but think that in Missouri they are
rising very fast, and that under the President’s
new coll and 'prospective draft, (which 1
strongly ’appprove,) a decided change of
policy must take place. As it now stands,
the loyal citizens are suffering the penalty of
disloyalty, and non-slaveholders are held to
a tighter rule than slaveholders or slaves.
Sec how It stands: lhaye two boys, 23 and
20 years old, well educated, active. loyal
They arc worth in money io me more than any
slaves that ever lived. I cannot find it in my
heart to advise them to volunteer,- for they
are the life of my house; yet they talk of it
and I shall not say one word to discourage.
them. When tbe -draft comes, as it must, u
they are taken they must go. Kow, one of
my neighbors has two slaves,'stout. stalwart
men. valuable only as laborers, who would
gladly volunteer. But the master is loyal, or
socs for such, (bis loyalty was at Camp
ackson!) and the men cannot be accepted
When the draft comes they cannot be in
cluded. Are his slaves better than my sons?
• Again, the quota from Missouri is based on
Congressional representation—L c., with
three-fifths of the slave population; But the
slaves are not drafted,-and who is their bulh
etitutes bnt the white population from whom
the required number is drawn ? Why should
sot the draft reach the slaves in a three-fifths
proportion? Is it a premium on slavery? !
Some ef our factories will-bo almost stopped
by the drain on them; Is the plantation more
sacred? . • f •
Again, nearly K of our white population,
especially toe slaveholders, have either be
come rebels or are too notoriously disloyal to
be trusted. - Why should not their slaves be
drafted, and why should their consent be
asked, if they can manage to make a fair show
of loyalty, 'before they* can bo accepted.
Why should the loyal men of the state
have the burden thus doubled and
made galling to them ? I contend that
Government should not recognize slavery vn
dermilitary Jaw and in military exigency.
The draft should reach slaves as well as free-,
men,either under the two-thirds rule, because ;
they are so represented, or under the divine
rule, because they arc men. And any able-!
bodied man, slave or tree, who -wishes to en
list, should be accepted, thankfully, because
Ids service is needed. No consent of the
master should be required: bnt if loyalty is
clearly proved, the bounty might be pud to
him, though of this I am not clear. It would
be perhaps the best way to settle the legal
doubt; but I think the inducement of boun
ty should be offered to the slave to encour
age bis enlistment. Where tbe loyal or
semi-loyal master brings tbe slave as a sub
stitute. I believe the bounty goes to tbe mas
ter. What Imean is that this discrimination,
in the Border States.against free men and
von-davchdldrTt, should cease, and now that
the policy of negro regiments has been ac
cepted, that the rule of enlistment should be
made equal and just. Tbe point of compen
sation to loyal owners is of secondary Im
portance and under civil law may be no more
than justice requires. Under military law it
may properly be granted, but the main thing
is to get the men, and to give to all who are
willing to do their part as soldiers the op
portunity of service.
If I had any influence at Washington, I
would use it to this end, and you may use
what I have written iq whatever way you
please. tfc *
Slavery as It now exists in Missouri is an
unmixed evil, and the sooner it disappears
from ns the better. It is a most mistaken
tenderness to do anything to prolong its days
or to foster it into renewed life. Every at
tempt to do It lessens the loyalty of the State
and prevents its recuperation from the crash
ing evils of civil war.

FobtFickxks, Florida, Not. 12,1868.
Our “big event” has been the arrival of a
Brigadier General, who arrived here on the
steamship Star of the South, on Saturday,
7th lust., from New Orleans, with Ms. stall,
and accompanied by one company of cavalry.
He was landed at the navy yard, and after
the ship bad discharged everything belong
ing to him she returned here to put ont the
remainder of her caigo, consisting of com
missary stores. The General proceeded to
, Barrancas, which is opposite Fort Pickens
and between the navy yard and lighthouse,
where he has established his headquarters.
Brigadier General Asboth—for snch is his
name—has not been in this department long.
He is one of the remaining ones. who ad
hered to Kossuth, and was a colonel under
that illustrious man, and consequently be
came a refugee; made Chicago, HL, his
home, where he has been residing some
ears. He is a remarkably ‘fine look
g officer, and . bears a high char
acter from his home, which was
testified by the citizens of Chicago making
him a present of a very fine horse on his
leaving for the seat of war. It is rumored
here (and he has talked publicly of it on the
passage) that he - only waits here for more
troops, which arc expected daily, to occupy
Pensacola proper, we all arc m anxiety to
sec the troops coming, as it may be the fore
runner of stirring events and hard knocks.
The troops here are in fine spirits and excel
lent health. ■
I have Just heard that General Asboth is
going to raise two more regiments here, one
white and one colored. As there arc a great
many three years' men whose time win ex
pire in two or three months, I suppose many
of them will rc-cnlist with straps on their
shoulders. i

[From our Eegular Correspondent]
Washington, Dec. 6,* 1803,
EUWOEED CHANGES IN THE CABINET.
The Secretaryship of the Navy, as I hare
already informed you, has been proffered to
Senator Grimes of lowa, and rejected. Sen
ator Grimes is ohe-’of-lhe best- postedmeh,
as regards naval affairs, in tbe country, hav
ing made it a speciality. He would make an
excellent head ot this Department, and I re
gret that he has seen fit to decline the ap
pointments - •
In this connection, I learn that strong rep
resentations have been made from Pennsyl
vania, Ohio; and Indidha,' respecting other
members of the Cabinet, and it is likely that
there will bo a change in the War and Post
Office Departments also; MessrsJ Stanton
and Blair going out to make way for others.
Messrs. Seward and Chose, it is stated, will
remain in their respective positions. The
feeling respecting the mismanagement of the
Navy Department is very great, and the ro
. cent disclosures respecting the Sickles cut-off*
trial in the Circuit Court, have intensified
the disgust caused hy Mr.'Wdies* or his sub
ordinate's miserable policy and action.
THE MESSAGE AND THE RADICAL MEN.
I learn from good authority that : Mr. Lin*
coin’s Message will take such ground upon
the great questions of the day, os de
veloped In the progress of the war,
will unqualifiedly secure him the support of
the radical wing of the Union party in the
country, and also unite the true Union'lov-
Ing men -of the nation more thoroughly in
Sort of the Administration. The Prcsl
s Message ■ will be something like his
letter to the Springfield mass convention, a
pledge to the people that he is determined to
cany out the principles and policy which he
has so steadily kept in view daring the pro
gress of the war. Mr. Lincoln, it has appear
ed, has been led by the people; when, on the
oilier hand, he has been led by the events
which have crowded upon the country in
such rapid succession, as to require a change
of policy with every change in the progress
of the wax.* His message will he another
step in the continued onward progress which
he has persevered in, and, as I said above,
will still more firmly attach the people to
him and his Administration
THE LOUISIANA DELEGATION.
The arc five members of Congress licre
from Louisiana, among them a Mr. Montague,
from the northern part of the State, where
there is not a Union man to bo found away
from under the (runs of our navy. Tct I un
derstand that at'lcast three of these gentle
men (If not all) will demand to hare their
names placed on the roll by the Clerk; and
some arc of opinion that Mr. Etheridge will
be fool or knave enough to put them there.
From the course of the man during the past
twelve months, I should judge there is no
saying what he may do. Mr. Field, formerly
Secretary of State of Illinois, Hearn, will de
mand to have his name placed on the rolls.
Ho Is represented as a radical Abolitionist
Some of the others, I hear, will await the or
ganization of the House, and then present a
memorial to that body stating their claims
and asking for admission. Then the question
will arise whether this - precedent will not
have to bo followed in the case of other se
ceded States presenting members of Congress
for admission. Can we refuse to admit Mr.
Sebastian, from Arkansas, If we admit these
men from Louisiana? By such admis
sion power Is given to seceded. States to
operate in both the Confederate and Federal
Congresses; It is like allowing a man to
vote in the caucus of both parties, and thus
control the action of both to his interests,
Besides, it is a question whether these States
arc anyPonger entitled to representation un
til they purge themselves of treasoa.and by the
loyal people thereof organize a Union State
Government, and elect representatives under
it ’ This question, 1 foresee, must inevitably
come up for discussion during the coming
session, and it Is important that it should he'
settled upon correct legal and Constitutional
principles. It is also necessary to the success
of the Administration in the present war.
that the Union party should place itself right
on the record upon this question.
OUR IRON-CLAD NAVY.
Onr iron-clad Navy now afloat consists
mostly of. monitors, ranging from CSO to
1,050 tons. The 850 ton vessels are: Sanga
mon. Nantucket, Lehigh, Patapsco, Nahant,
Catskill, Passaic, Weehawken, Montauk—9.
All of these, except the Sangamon, (which is
in Washington,) arc at Charleston.
The 1,050 ton vessels are: Catawba, Mana
ynnk, Oneota, Cononicns, Saugus, Tocnmsch,
Tippecanoe, Mahopac, Manhattan—9. These
are building at Jersey City, Wilmington,
Boston, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati.
There is a third lot of monitors, viz.-: Aga
in entiens, Miantonomah, Monadnock, and
Tonawanda—4. They arc building at Bos
ton, Philadelphia, New Yoik and Portsmouth,
N. H. The New York vessel is the only one
launched.
There are also 19 monitors of 950 tons each,
building at varionsplocea.
We have, also, 21 Iron-clad and partially
iron-dad gunboats on the Mississippi and
tributaries. They range from 600 to 1.000
tons each, and arc only suitable for river
navigation.
Of the vessels of the frigate class, we have
two afloat—the New Ironsides, 8,486 tons,
and the Roanoke, 3,433 tons. The Bonder
berg, 5,000 tons, Dictator, 4,050 tons, and
Ponton, 4,350 tons, are building atNew York.
They arc wooden vessels, clad with Iron.
Another vessel of this class, not named, is
building at Philadelphia.
The Navy Department has also invited pro
posals for two dasses .of ocean iron-dads,
one of 7,000, and the other of 3,500 tons, bni*
nothing has, as yet. been done noon them.
There is also a fleet of iron double-enders,
like the wooden ones lately constructed, and
in process of construction. If they do not
fet more speed than the wooden vessels they
o not promise well. Two of the wooden
vessds are now at this Navy Yard, where
experiments arc being made on their engines,
which it turns ont do not give that speed to
the vessds which was expected. This is
attributed to Chief Engineer Isherwood's un
founded prejudice against using steam ex
pansively.
The heavy ocean Iren clads are an experi
ment, and u they do not turn out better than
wooden vessels dad with iron In a similar
manner lately constructed in Europe, the
money will be thrown away upon them.

The Ocean Carrying Trade.
The steam carrying trade on the Atlantic
has increased within the past few years, with
a rapidity which the most sanguine friends of
steamship enterprise have never dared to
predict In the year 1852 the tonnage of for-,
elgn-golng steamers entered inward at Liver
pool was 188,715 tons, while In 1863 it was
595,839, which, in the year ending Jane, 1863
had increased fo 756,430 tons. In abont ten
years the foreign steam trade of that port
has more than quadrupled. There ore at pre
sent eight distinct lines of Atlantic steam
ships, six of which have contracts for carry
ing the malls. They own in the aggregate
fifty-five vessels, and new vessels of an im
proved character, and of greater power and
capacity, are being constantly added to the
list. We have recently had the prospectus of
a new lino to be established by the “National
Steam Navigation Company,” with a capital
of two millions sterling, having for its object
“to nm a fleet of screw steamers from Liver
pool and London to New York;' of large size
and great capacity. Three steamers of that
class have already been secured, and con
. tracts have been entered into for the building
of others of abont 8,500 tons each. The im
petus given to the trade bas induced the
Canard and Dale or (or Inman) lines to nm
extra steamers at stated times, and the Ini
tiatory steps have already been taken for the
establishment of new lines. It is a notewor
thy fact that the screw ships are fast super
seding the more expensive and cumbrous
side-wheel steamers. The Canard Company,
it is said, freely admit that their screw ship,
the China, which is of each size and power as
to admit of fair comparison with first-class
side-wheel steamers, is the least expensive
and most useful vessel of thcirline.
Ihe Heroine of Gettysburg,
[From the Harrisburg Telegraph.]
The country has already heard of John
Burns, the hero of Gettysburg; of how the
old man sallied forth, a host within himself;
“ to fight on his own hook” and how he fell
wounded after having delivered many shots
from his trusty rifle into the face and hearts
of his country’s foes. John Bum 3* name is
already recorded among the Immortal, to Hvo
there while American valor and patriotism
has an admirer and on emulator. But there
was a heroine as well as a hero ot Gettysburg.
The old hero,. Bums, still lives ;• the heroine,
sweet Jenny Wade, perished in the din of
that awful fray, and she now sleeps where
the flowers once bloomed; and, the perfmpe
laden air wafted lovingly over Cemetery
Hill.
Before the battle, and while the National
hosts were awaiting the assault of the traitor'
foe, Jenny Wade was busily engaged in baking
broad for the National troops. She occupied
a house in range of the guns of both armies,
and the' rebels had sternly ordered her to
leave the premises, hut this she as sternly
refused to do. While she was busily
engaged in her patriotic work, a Mlnic boll
pierced her pure breast, and she fell a holy
sacrifice in her country’s cause. Almost at
the same time a rebel officer of high rank fell
near where Jenny Wade had perished. The
rebels at once proceeded to prepare a coffin
for their fallen leader, bat about the time
that was finished the surging of the conflict
changed the positions of the armies, and
Jenny Wade’s body was placed in the coffin
designed for her country’s enemy. The inci
dents of the heroine and the hero of Gettys
burg are beautifully touching, noble and sub
lime.
Old John Bums was the only man of Get
tysburg who participated in the straggle to
save the North* from invasion, while inno-
I cent Jenny Wade was the only sacrifice Which
the people of that locality bod to otter on the
ehrinexjf their country. Let a monument be
erected on ibe ground which covers her, be
fore which tbopngrims to the holy tombs of
the heroes of Gettysburg can bow and bless
the memory' of Jenny wade,’ If the people
of Gettysburg ore not able alone to raise the
funds to pay for a suitable monument for
Jenny Wade, let them send a committee to
Harrisburg, and our little boys and girls will
assist in soliciting subscriptions for this holy
purpose. Before the summer sunshine again
kisses the grave of Jenny Wade; before the
summer birds once more carol where she
sleeps in glory; before the flowers again
deck the plain made famous by gallant deeds,
let a monument rise to greet the skies in
tokens of virtue, daring and nobleness.—

THE BATTLE OF CHATTA.
ROOGA,
Official Report ofCol. Chandler of the
■ 88th nilnols.
Hbadquahttes SBtu 111. Ikt. You. I
Chattanooga, Tenn., Nov. 27th, 1853. y
Geneeal: I have the honor to make the
following report of the part taken bvthis
regiment in the late engagement with the
enemy:
The regiment, on tbo 23d Inst, was on
picket in front of Port Ncglcy, when the
movement of the army was begun.' Wo were
relieved on the morning of the 24th, and or
dered to join oar brigade, which bad moved
to the left daring the night. At 11 o’clock,
on the 25th,. andor the direction of Col
onel - Sherman, -1 took position be
hind the breastwork on the picket line to the
left of the road leading oat from tbe left of
Fort Ncgley. At 8 o’clock* in the afternoon,
the regiment with the brigades, advanced to
tbe rise of ground on which had been the
enemy’s picket line, where it was halted.
The regiment occupied the right of the sec
ond line, and at 8 o’clock, under the imme
diate direction of CoL Miller, who had the
direction of the second line, advanced to tbe
assault of the enemy’s .works on Missionary
Ridge. We advanced on quick lime until we
reached the edge of the Umber, when we
took the “ double quick” across the plain, a
distance of half a mile to tbo first lino of
works, the enemy firing into our ranks from
the first line, and pouring grape and canister
from the batteries on the crest of the ridge..
Here, under the little shelter afforded by this
first line of works, the men sank from ex
haustion. We remained hero only a few mo
ments, and advanced to the -second line,
driving the enemy in confusion before us.
The men were now so completely exhausted,
and there was kept up such a galling Are
from the enemy, that a farther advance seem
ed out of question. A few moments of rest,
however, and they followed the colors which
were ordered forward. The advance, which
was alow, but sure, having to contend not
only with the direct fire, nut an enfilading
fire from the right.. When near the upper
works of tho. enemy we halted, waiting for
the troops on oar right to move forward and
draw from us the fire, which was enfilading
our line of advance. This fire not in any
way diminishing, I ordered the colors forward
on tho works, which a ftoment after were
carried, and the “ stars and stripes ” waved
triumphantly on Missionary Ridge, the one
mybeing in full retreat and great confusion.
The distance from where the charge was be
gun to tbe top of tbo ridge was at least one and
a balf miles across a wide open plain and np a
long steep hill, protected by . three lines of
rifle pits, one at the foot, the second about
balf way up, add tbe third oniho crest of the
ridge, with artillery at tbo top. The time
occupied was about one and a half hours.
The regiment rested on the ridge unUl about
one o’clock the next morning when, with
the brigade, wo moved to the front a mile
and a and halted uqtil about ten o’clock,
when we moved forward* to Chlckamanga
Creek. In the afternoon we returned to
camp.
I desire to make honorable mention of tho
ofllccrs of this regiment, all of whom did
their duty most gallantly. Capt. George W.
Smith, of Company A, acting field olllcer,
was conspicuous for his bravery while urging
on the almost exhausted men, until about
two-thirds of the way up the hill, he fell
severelywounded. First lieutenant Dean R.
Chester, commanding Company G, was shot
through the leg while crossing the plain, but
gallantly led his company to the second line
of works.
Second Lieutenant Henry L. Bingham, com
manding Co. H, was killed Just before we
reached the second line, but proved himself
entirely worthy the straps he nad so recently
mounted. First Lieutenant Edward E.
Tucker, commanding Company D, was con
spicuous for his daring, in moving among the
men, urging them forward. Sergeant Richard
Reaif was everywhere, urging on those who
fell behina of other regiments, as well as
those of our own.. It affords me groat
satisfaction to mention our brave color
bearer. ‘Sergeant John Chccvcr, who gal
gallantly carried, our banner, planting it
always in the advance for the regiment to
rally on, never letting it trail in the • dost,
but waving it encouragingly to those be
hind, and defiantly to the enemy before him,
never faltering until he wared it over the
top of Missionary Ridge. It is difficult to
select any one from the ranks and give him
special mention where all behaved so well;
hut I must mention Corp. Thomas Lacy, of
Co. K, and private William Isbcster, of Go.
C, who seemed to Tie with the colors for the
advance. Accompanying this report I send
a list of the casualties of the regiment.
I am General, very respectfully,
G. W. Chandler, ,

HOGS—TbCTccelpts of bogs at the various yards np
to four o’clock tbls afternoon,' amounted to about
8,000 but since that time several trains have arrived
with a large quantity In addition. The entered sales

have been made at *54)005X0, and have ehlefly con
sisted of the best droves to be. found! In the market.
The demand for prime and extra hogs exclusively
arises from the fast that, the comparatively few buy
ers atppreset In the market, are purchasing only this
dcscripUpn of stock. The Inactivity and depression
•which characterized, the market yesterday, has, If
nnythlng.bccntnore apparent to-day,ln the absence
of a large proportion of the buyers from the yards,
whose attendance daring the present Mason hasbecn
as constant and os regular as clockwork. Hen well
posted In the hog trade, are somewhat divided in their
opinions as to the cause of the present change In tho
activity and firmness of the market. Of all
other.. reasons .assigned, there are two that
seem to meet tho whole case, namely,
that the prices given for hogs during t the last month
have been considerably higher than the market value
of the hog product wlQjnstiiy, and. therefore the own
ers must make a reduction In thelrpreseat rates. The
other reasonaselgned is that the present stringency of
the money market has so far affected,the operations
of many of our large buyers, that they have been com
pelled to limit their transactions to the smallest pos
sible extent There Is bnt little donbt that both these *
causes causes have affected the market In no small
degree, and that to the latter cause, ehlefly, may be
attributed the present depression. As the result of
the comparative inactivity on yesterday and to-day
we note a decline of 10015 c on medium to prime hogs,
and of 25c oh common qualities; on extra qualities
the market Is firm at former quotations.

BOSTON COTTON
[From the Boston Shipping List, 7th.]
There is very little doing, while at the same time
prices remain nnn, with little orno prospect of “soft
ening.” A fair amount of orders hare been recelred
daring the week by the Jobbing trade, but otherwise
little bos been done except with city customers. Com*
mission booses are receiving cotton goods very spar
' Ugly, and about all are taken by the trade as soon as
received. The stock of cottons Is probably the small
eet at any time, with a very light- supply also In the
bands of speculators. Beavy cotton goods range from
[email protected]; fine and medium sheetings tuve been selling
[email protected], as to quality. Drills have been taken to
some extent by tne Government, and prices are Irreg
ular and unsettled. Cotton Jeans have been selling at
[email protected] as to quality. Colton llanncla, denims, stripes
and ricks remain the same as previously noticed, with
limited stockiand small sales. Cottonades continue
In active demand, and are selling at advanced prices.
Print cloths remain os prevloualy.Kc for 61x61. Prints
are quiet, bot holders arc firm In prices, and Jobbers
are working off their recent purchases atagood profit.

The Shipping Trade cl* Montreal*

Of the Inland freights the Htrald says:
Tbe Lake Ontario’s business opened with larger ac
commodations of flour than for some yean post; but
Utile was done In carrying min. Brill tbe demand
for freight dnnng May and June, October and No-'
vember, was steady, though not pressing. During the
midsummer months, tbe propellers engaged la the
- business bad to seek employment In more lengthened
trips 1* the upper lakes
From Lake Erie to Montreal very little business
has been done. Forwarders attribute the decline of
this Important branch ot the earning trade to tbe re-
Imposlflon of the canal tolls at rates so excessive as
to stop tbe traflic. especially In Indian Com. To Il
lustrate this they point to tbe enormous tilling off la
tbe receipts. In 13C3, from tbo opening of the naviga
tion to tbe 27tb November, tbe receipts were *.’,949,135
bushels com: for same period In 1563,783,949 bushels;
decrease 1,860,166 bushels.
The direct trade to Chicago has employed a few
: propellers, with the pleasing fact that large quanti
ties of salt and iron have been shipped thence by Ibis
route, and would, but for tbe tolls, have made tbo
trade fairly remunerative.
Of course there Is a desire among tho Canadians,
and especially among tbe citizens of Montreal, to in
drease this Inland trade to tbe detriment of New
York. Tho Herald says:
There are two schemes before the pnblle for this
'purpose. The lint)? tbe deepening and widening
of the canals, and tbo second of making a new water
communication via the Georgian Bay and tbo river
Ottawa. The advocates of the former scheme pro
test against tbe expense of tbe opening of tbe Ottawa
route, especially in tbo present state of our finances,
the lowest estimate being 331,000. Although looking
to tho probable future or Canada and our business
connection with tbo great Western States, doubtless
destined to be tbe granary of Europe, tbeso persoas
admit that tbe Ottawa route must sooner
or (later -be opened. At present tbe main
tain that the enlargement of the Welland and St.
Lawrence Canals at tbe estimated cost of some
M,000,000, will be sufilclcnt for our Immediate wants.
Wbatwerequlrsls tbe passage of vessels of 800 to
DOO tons between this and Chicago, because by em
ploying vessels of that class we could more than suc
cessfully compete with tbe Buffalo and Oswego
routes. They farther state that although the Ottawa
route Is tbe shortest from Chicago by some 810 miles,
the advantage of tbe open lake voyage will, by en
cnabllnc steamers and sailing vessels to go at fall
speed, more than counterbalance tbe saving of actual
distance.
Boston Leather Market,
[From Johnson * Thomson’s Circular.] *
A iblr amouat-of business boa been done In bides
and leather daring tbe past month, at full and advan
cing prices. Tbe recent successes of oar armies, and
the consequent decline la gold, has checked opera
tions in foreign bides, which are held at prices above *
tbe views of buyers. Leather Is held firmly at quota
tions ; the small stock la tbe market, and tke scarcity
and high price of tanning material, make tbo pros
pect good for a further advance in prices of leather
of all kinds.
