THE BORDER STATE MEN.
We have been accustomed forsomc three
years to think and speak of certain mem
bers of Congress and other politicians un-,
der this name as a distinct class, having
interests and aims considerably different
from any other party. They occupied a
a post which might well enough be desig
nated as the Half-way House to Rebellion,
'They opposed secession,to be sore; but
then they wanted to hold on to that which
was the life and soul of Secession. Their
God was slavery; but they preferred slave
ryin the Union—as who but one stark
mad, as the rebels would not ?If they
could have davciy in the Unioni they
would stay; but if not, they, would—well,
'no matter what—they would break things;
‘ they would do something dreadful. - They
would perhaps join the rebels even.
For a couple of years this party excr-
ciscd a most malign influence in the iic
’ T public. They had, for a long while, the
. car of the President, and threw mud into
_ , . the waters of his understanding, keeping
- it from working clear. They have kept
on doing what they could to hold things
as they were; to tmharrass, not so mnch
the -warper te; hut the war so for as it
- - made for the destruction of slavery. They
* have constituted, in fact, a sort of Slavery-
Protection Society. Their natural allies
have, been our Northern Copperheads,
Com whom they scarcely differ by a single
shade. ' s
■ Tlut, perhaps, it is discovered that this
peculiar parly is fading out and disappear
ing; and the probability is ffiat not far
hence in.fhc future it will be totally gone.
Such a party was natural enough in the
beginning of the war. Nothing was more
natural than that the Border States should
cherish the hope of being able to hold on
to slavery. Their interests—or supposed
interests—blinded them to the fact
slavery was the cause of all the trouble.
Or if they knew that it did provoke the
war, their Lope was that it would be found
no necessity of the war as its causes. Or
/whatever might be true as regarded causes,
they cherished a selfish hope of being able
to go through the war and keep the insti
tution tolerably safe. And for this they
have worked with the industry of beavers
and with the zeal of fanatics.
But the unwilling scholars In a good,
thorough school have to leam somcUung.
What the love of study and the appeals of
ambition do not effect,hickory rods, vexing
the cloth which protects, the sitting part,
Accomplishes; slowly, it maybe, but some
times thoroughly.. Ourßorder States have
been the school room where hickory rods
have hissed and whizzed with terrible con
tinuity and emphasis. They have been
tie stamping ground of the war. Here
armies have marched, and camped, and.
straggled, and plundered; and burned
fences, and fought battles. Powder and
thunder and fire have done their work, and
such noise and tumult and shaking of the
air and the earth have brushed away cob
webs and owl’s nests, and broken up the
dens of all kinds of vermin, and let in day
light where it had never thought of shining
before.
And there has been a dreadful deal of
rubbing of eyes, and beadaching with new
. ideas, working impregnation and getting
birtli, along that border belt. The people
have seen—arc seeing—that to keep old
things through such eras of change is am
ply impossible. The antediluvians might
as well have thought to save their sugar
through Noah’s flood. Ton cannot set up
a foundry in a powder-house without some
_ risk to one institution at least
* The result is that our Border State men,
as such, arc evaporating. This is a fact
more than ever distinct within the short
time that Congress has been together. Be
fore it met, huge expectations were in
dulged on the part of our. peace men of
' help from the Border States to their
schemes of trouble-making. It was for
gotten that opinion was all the time pro
gressing, and nowhere so last as in the
Border States. These men have beep sig
nally disappointed. The Border State
men arc like other men. They no longer
act, as such, together. They divide and
take their places with the different parties,
according to their affinities.
What has thus been begun will be hence
forth fblly carried out . The Border State
party will disappear, f’rom that region,
now and then, -very likely, some benighted
constituency will elect a benighted repre
sentative ; and he will wander Into the
darkness of the so-called democracy. But,
in the main, it can scarcely be doubted,
that the Border States will be found with
the party of progress; and their men, in
stead of holding on to the caudal end of it,
and being thus pulled along, will be in
the advance and lead it All this is hut
the philosophy of their position. Once
cut them loose from the body of death to
which they have been tied; once let them
give up the idea «f slavery as a good and
useful thing, and no men will be freer in
their notions, or more enterprising in their
undertakings. They will of necessity And
themselves face to face with a thousand
things which will need reform. And being
on the very ground where these reforms
are to be wrought, they will understand
them better than men at a distance from
them, and will go more intelligently pnd
resolutely about curing them. What we
see beginning in Maryland, In Missouri, in
Tennessee, and even in Kentucky, will go
on. Slavery being dead, there will be
haste to bury it quickly out of sight, as so
much carrion, offensive both to the eye
and olfaction. To our Northern conserva
tives, such men will seem dreadfully radi
cal. Their idea would be, to keep the
dead carcass as long as possible, to look at,
and smell of; as if it were so much rose
water. But those who live in the neigh
borhood know better. Let the earth cover
it, and the grass will grow all the greener
and the flowers more plenty and gorgeous
for its burial.
All hail, then, to Winter Davis, and
Oratz Brown, and Lucicn Anderson, and
the men who, with them, are coming out
of the prison-house of bondage, having
shaken their garments clear of all its defile
ments, and are bending their energies to
pull down the whole accursed fabric of
oppression.
tS” Wc had’sccD itstatcd that the rebel
chiclh obtained food for their troops by im
pressment, but we were not aware that it
was the general role to do so, until we
read the confession of it in Jeff. Davis’
Message. He there openly admits that pro
. visions Jor the support of the rebel army
are obtained by seizure from the farmers.
He gives as the reason for so doing that
the fanners will not voluntarily sell their
com and pork for Confederate currency,
which they regard as worthless; hence he
is obliged to order the rations for his sol
diers to be taken by force from the pro-,
da cere. How long will the masses yield
their consent to this condition of things/
Have they not pretty nearly "got their
rights” by this time ? It will not be long
before they will rejoice in the opportunity
‘ of embracing the pardon on the terms pro
■ posed in the President’s amnesty pro
clamation.
t2T* Wc have been waiting patiently for
the sccesh Timet to make a savage attack
* on Jeff Davis for his recommendation to
negroes in the rebel armies. It must
w vay shocking to the Northern conserv
ativcs to read as follows, from Jell’s Hes
t atgc:
the exemption I*w, “ o £, lf r|es
Again, he adds:

gmpajenaslopntat deJ&ncc the utmost efiorS
Wo have heard so mnehagainst the enor
mity of employing negroes in any capacity
in the Federal armies that we looked con
fidently to sec the Copperhead press give
Jett Davis “particular fits'* for advocating
the very same thing, hut we have looked
.in vain. Kot a word of reproof or repro
bation has been uttered. We can only ex
plain it on the ground that in Copperhead
estimation it is unconstitutional for negroes
to he employed to help the Union cause,
hut all right and proper for rebel? to use
them in any way they can or dare, to des
troy the Union. A Copperhead is a strange
creature, and has a singular code of politi
cal ethics.
' Jeff Davis, in his disquisition on
’the currency, urges a forced loan by means
of what he calls “a compulsory reduction
of the currency”—that is, the pocket of
each rebel is to be forcibly turned bottom
side up, and the confederate curcncy found
therein, to be taken from him, and in lien
thereof he shall bo coerced into aocepting
unsaleable bonds of the sinking confeder
acy. By this means the redundant circu
lation is to bc“ retired,” and afterwards
reissued, to be again forcibly “ funded,”
when occasion requires it The finances
of Jell’s Kingdom must be In a charming
condition.
IST The desperation of the rebel cause
may be judged from the' recommendation
contained in Jeff Davis’ message, that con
scripts who have heretofore furnished sub
stitutes'he again .conscripted, and that the
right of serving by substitute be abolished.
This shocking breach of faith would not

in extremia.
Union Victories,
The Union party have achieved a substan
tial triumph In Boston, electing Mr. Lincoln,.
Mayor, by 8,500 majority.
Bridgeport, Conn., which since the out
break of the war has been a hitter secession
place, is redeemed. The town election, on
Monday last, resulted in a glorious victory
for the Union cansc. The vote was very
heavy, and the Copperheads made a desperate
effort to sustain the power they have held so
long, but were emphatically routed, by ma
jorities ranging from 80 to 113.

’ Washikotok, Dec, 14,1355.
The Russians gave a banquet and ball to
the members of Congress and their ladies, on
board one of their largest ships at Alexandria.
There was a good deal of eating and drink
ing, and not much talking, which Is wonder
ful, considering the ability in that line of so
many of the nation’s representatives. The
Russian Minister, Baron Stodkl, said: '
Igive rou the toast of “The happiness and pros
perity of the United States.” Myself, the Admiral,
and all the officers of the fleet thank yon for the
hospitality with which we have been treated while

A half hour later, alter champagne and oth

Speaker Collaz again rapped the company to
order, and delivered the following speech;

that since the commoncemeot of the great straggle
to which tUs country la engaged for its existence,
the heart of every American is wanned towards
all those who .sent welcome words of friendship
and sympathy to the Republic founded by Wash

and Just os well as if every member present
had a chance to “blow his horn” for home
consumption. And, speaking of the Russian
officers, in polite society they are not regard
ed as very polished specimens of humanity.
Indeed, I heard one gentleman, who met
them at the Secretary of State’s and Secreta
ry of the Navy’s ’banquets, remark that they
did not behave themselves near so well os
the delegation of “Digger Indians,” who
were hero some year and a half ago. At
Ford’s Theatre, a night or two since, they
made lascivious signs to the ladles on the
stage, and the relative of one Of them there
upon threatened to whip the entire party.
At any of the entertainments given them,
they did nothing but stand around the tables
and gorge themselves with the eatables and
drinkables. As compared with our officers,
of either service, they are very inferior per
sons. ’

contains a large quantity of excellent arable
land, very valuable coal mines, and gold de

ENLISTMENT OF NEGROES IN MISSOURI A FAIL-
I regret to learn that the enlistment of ne
groes in Missouri has so far proved a failure.
The loyal men of Missouri charge this failure
upon Gen. Schofield's appointee for Provost
Marshal General, who has the appointment
of the deputies, and who in almost every
case bos appointed pro-slavery men dud .se
cessionists as* such deputies. The conse
quence is that in four weeks but four hnn
dred negroes have been enlisted, and these
arc generally old, dccrepld, and worn out
men, the owners of whom were glad to get
ridof them on any terms, wiicrcos they get
S3OO cadi for them. At least six thousand
negroes ought now to be in the field from
Missouri Why not give the appointment of
the Provost Marshals to CoL try of this city,
who, by the bye, has the reputation of being
the best officer in the War Department here ?
No department of the service is in such per
fect order as bis. I feel doubly proud of this,
-as the Colonel is an old Illinoisan, though
not an old man either. I believe he is a na
tive of the State.
THE COURT OF CLAIMS.
This court has been in session the past
week, Judge Peck of your city being one of
the judges thereof The important case of
the clehrated Floyd acceptances, where pro
perty of immense value was literally given
away by that notorious thief, has occupied
the attention of the court during the week.
Some of the most celebrated legal gentlemen
of the country represent the claimants, viz.:
Benj. B. Curtis, Caleb Cushing, Judge B. F.
Thomas, and others. The case has not yet
been concluded.
HEALTH OF THE PRESIDENT.
The President has not yet quite recovered
his health. Indeed, on Saturday he was com
pelled to keep his room. Yesterday, how
ever, he was much better, and able to attend
to business. Zcta.

Washington, Dec. 16,1853.
Senator Sherman has procured for the use
of the Western Sanitary Fair, and has for
warded to Cincinnati this evening, the origi
nal autograph copy of the President’s late
proclamation of the amnesty accompanying
bis message. It is full of interlineations and
erasures, giving evidence of the various
shades of meaning to a form which the Pres
ident inclined in drawing it up. So valuable
a historical document, it will command gen

lection of autograph letters from prominent
men. North and South, which will be sent
out to-morrow.
PERSONAL.
Gen. Schofield has arrived, in obedience to
the President's summons, and had an inter
view with the President to-day. Reports
prevail that he has already been removed,
but up to noon to-day, at any rate, they were
premature. The better belief, however, Is
that his removal has either been determined
upon orit is very probable.
Gen. Rosecrons is still regarded his most
probable successor, if the removal is made,
though the War Office is hostile to him, and
may interfere. Burnside is also talked of.

ILLINOIS HORTICULTURAL CON-
VENTION,
AKKVAL SESSION AT ALTON.
[Special Correspondence Chicago Tribune.]
Alton, Dec. 15,1863.
MORNING SESSION.
The Society met this morning in, the Mer
cantile Hall, a fine building just completed,
and owned by Mr. Boot, President Mlnier in
the chair. The attendance was very fair con
sidering that only the Ohio- and Mississippi
and Chicago and Alton railroads grant return
passes. We can see no reason why the rail
road companies should not grant the same
courtesies to this valuable State institution
that they do to the State Agricultural So
ciety, more especially the Illinois Central,
which is so deeply interested in the progress
of fruit culture and market gardening, from
Chicago to Cairo. Wc observe but one mem
ber from that part of the State, reaching a
distance of 3C5 miles, and no one from the
main line, but we trust that more will arrive.
Over filly members have answered to the
roll call, and taken their seats.
The President delivered the usual annual
address, which teems with practical sugges
tions. It was referred to the proper com
mittee.
There arc several line lots of fruits on the
tables, of which we shall have occasion to
speak so soon as the whole collection is in
order.
AFTEBNOON SESSION.
Messrs. Fhcniz, Bryant and Stewart were ap
pointed a Committee on Fruits; Mr. Hosman
and Mr. Mudd of Mo., Dr. Shroder, Dr. War
der and Whitney, Committee on Wines, of
which there is a good display.
The Treasurer reported eaaii on hand of
SIKS, afler paying till the expenses of Bock
ford Fair, and other expenses, up to this date
showing the Society in a good, healthy condi
tion.
LIST OF APPLES.
This list, was token up, and after coin**
through part of the list, the subject wal
passed over for the present.
DIVISIONS OP TUB STATE.
This soon'j)roved a knotty question in
which the meeting soon became tangled np
and it was finally decided to compromise the
matter between science and convenience,
and adopted the line of thcLogansport, Pec£
ria & Burlington Bailroad, forlhe South lim
it ofNorthcm Illinois and the*" Terre Haute
and Alton Bailroad that of the North limit of
Southern Illinois.
A motion was made to strike out the words
ground cultivation, and insert market, so
that it shall.read “list of fruits for market
purposes.” This was carried by a small ma
jority after a debate of some two hours, but
was rescinded and laid on the table.
EVENING SESSION.
Mr, Golnsha moved the appointment of a
committee for each division of the State, to
report a list of apples: Ist for market pur
poses ; 2d, for fkmilv use; 3d, for trial
Messrs. Galusha, Whitney and Hurtfeldt,
for northern Illinois; Messrs. Hull, Stew
art and Overman, for central Illinois; and
Messrs. Baker, Flagg and Wright, for south
ern Illinois.
Dr. E. 8. Hull of Alton read an essay on
peach culture. • The Dr. is one of the most
successful an intelligent cultivators of the
: >cach, and the essay attracted no small atten
-1 ion, as will be seen by the discussion.
The Doctor took the ground that the peach
was a native of Louisiana, as. proven by
Father Hennepin, in his first* voyage down
, tLo Mississippi. It is also a native of China
and Persia, and carried thence to England in
1550. He believed that shallow cnltnro, and
the catting off of the top root of the young
trees, had had a bad effect on this valuable
frnit, he would therefore recommend that
in planting, the ground bo deeply worked,
that holes of three feet deep and five in diam
eter each way be rondo and filled with com
post and rich soil, and the tree set some three
inches deeper than it. stood in the nursery •
but were it not for the borer he would plant
only os deep as it stood in the nursery. This
deep hole filled with rich waste, is
for the purpose of exciting the
growth of tho top roots, which he
claims as highly Important. In cnltlyatin&he
plows deeply, breaking the surface roots, bo
as to make the tree depend on the deep tap
roots, that feed below the usual effects of the
dronth. Barnyard manure is the best of all
.manure, andean be used freely. -
At the close, the Doctor submitted the
following list for orchard planting. These
are in the . order of the figures annexed:
1- EarlyTork. 6-rGcorgo the Fourth.
2 Hriner Jfiarlrfiod,. 5-LateCrawford.
2 York. . feLate Admirable.

deep holes, recommended by
Dr. - Hull, was assailed by several members as
not adapted to clay woils. or in any other
than soils naturally dry like the bluff} along
.the river as the location of the Doctor.
Mr. Coleman, editor of .-the VaUey Farmer,
made an attempt to add sound cling poaches
to the list, but the taste of members evident
ly did not run to cling., After various at
tempts to strike out and add to the doctor’s
list, it was adopted without change. -
Hale’s Early was recommended for .trial
It is said that this is the earliest peach of the
season, but this point was not well proved.
Mr. Lee, of Indiana, claimed that it is ten
days earlier than Serrate Early - York', our
earliest peach. Mr.'., Baker, of South
Pass, had fruited it lost summer,-
andionndit some seven days in advance of
the Serrate Early York, and nearly ten days
ahead of Troth’s Early, which is the earliest
peach-sent to-the Chicago market In any
quantity. In this connection, considerable
sparring was had over the value of the Serrate
Early York as a market peach. Dr. Hull said
its only value was its cariiness, add that
some of the Serrate (sonr-edged) varieties
were of much value. The growers from the
South port of the State found this variety of
no value, and depended mainly on Troth’s
Early, for an early marketpeach, and they had
great confidence that Hole’s Early would
prove a valuable addition to the list of early
peaches. ,
It may be interesting to state the time of
ripening of peaches, as set forth by growers
both at Alton and Cobden.
At Cobdcn—Halo’s Early, July Ist; Early
Tilloison, sth; Troth’s Early, 30th;; -Large
Early York, Isth; Honest John, 20th; Early
Crawford, 25th; Coolagc’s Favorite !Augnst
Ist; Old Mixon Free, 10th; Late Crawford,
151h; Lagrange, Sept. Ist; Smock, sth.
At Alton—Early Tillolson ripens July sth.
By this, planters and others can see what va
rieties to select lor a succesion of this deli
cious fruit
The rule requiring twelve votes to place
any new fruit on the list, was changed to six,
anda majority of all tho votes cast.
BLASTING AND CULTDBE.
The discussion under this head took a
wide range, hut tho conclusion arrived at
was that trees should ho planted no deeper
than they stood In the nursery, and that tho
ground should ho deeply plowed, not less
than a foot deep; that dug holes should uot
be employed unless the soil was thoroughly
uudcrdmmcd, cither naturally or artificially.
One man would plant one or two feet deeper
than they grew fn the nursery, but he was
soon laughed down as a quack.
Several members came iu on. the evening
trains, among them a large delegation from
Cobden.
The session now promises to be one of un
usual interest.
The citizens leave out the latch string, and
all the members, numbering not less than
one hundred, have been assigned places In
private families. Rural.

I would discourage the bringing of little

These men were taken in the recent battles
near Chattanooga, and are mostly from Mis
sissippi, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Lou
isiana, and that region. They will average
well, in appearance, with the rest of human
ity, and are clothed better than the public
generally believe, though not well enough
for this severe climate. They will suffer lor
many of the comforts of life this winter, and
many of them are now In very poor health.
Some sixty or seventy of them ore now sick
with double pneumonia and diarrhea, and
will probably all, or nearly all, die. We
shonld not be surprised to find that, when
the barracks 'arc full, as many os 150 will
die every month. They have been accustom
ed to a milder climate than this; they have
suffered much in the service of the rebel gov
ernment, and, alter all the hardships and pri
vations they have endured, then to be taken
prisoners and placed in box cars and trans
ported to the northern region, being on the
road several days and nights, without being
allow ed to leave the car, and without regular
supplies of water and food, is as much as a
well man could endure. The result is that
very many are now on the sick list, and hun
dreds more will follow*.
THE NEW BARRACKS.
At the east cud of the prison barracks new
barracks are being finished for the use of an
additional guard, such as barracks for the
soldiers and houses for the officers. The
buildings arc duplicates of those now at tbe
west (hid, and will be ready for occnpaacy
next week. Six companies* of the Invalid
corps are new obliged* to be quartered in the
buildings erected for the prisoners, though
they are separated from them by a temporary
fence. When the new quarters are comple
ted at the east cud, these companies will
move out of the prison yard.
MORE ERISONEBS COMING.
Fifteen hundred more prisoners are on the
road here, and it is expected that trains of
cars bringing prisoners will continue to ar
?T. e . few until the barracks are
fnlL The barracks were built for about 11,-
000, but by some slight changes in the bunks,
and adding a kitchen to each buildin", the
place can be made to hold perhaps 15,(m)
MORE GUARDS COMING.
Considerable addition will be made to the
force employed as guard, as the number of

of it into a cracked tea-cup, and drank it

window-siU, and,looking lovingly upon the
flask, said, “That’s the smtf to make a sol

■with considerable force, and when he, at my
request, handed me my • carpet-sack,
I took from it and presented
hhn with a copy of the Chicago

White Kivcr some time previously. He was
very much obliged, and complimented the

ed forth a vast amount of profanity in some
localities, and was generally regarded loss fit
to swear by than at. After patronizing a flask
the second time, and leaving It about as dry
as he wtyi when he first entered the room, the
Lieutenant said, “Well, good bye, old fellow,
I must be off, for I’ve got to cross the White

Tire Washington Cocjctt (H. 1.) Bank.—Mr.
Wm. B.' Bliss,. Becrotaj-jr of the American Bank
Note Company, publishes a letter in the Providence
Journal, explaining the connection of the Tiimir
Note Company with the recent attempt of the
Washington County (B. I.) Bank to accomplish a
great over-issue of its hills. It appears that after
obtaining the printing of $60,000 by the Company,
Mr. W. D. Bannister, the President of the Bank,
desired to get more Impressions printed from the
same plates. This excited the suspicions of Mr.
Bliss, who, in order to prevent his going else*
where and carrying ont his plans, entered into ne
gotiations with Mr. Bannister, and in the course
ofaeveral interviews learned that ho wanted the
enormous amount of $750,000 printed. These
notes were not to be sent to the Bank, but were to
be trimmed and packed up in New Tork, and wore
to be sent dojvn into the Southern States for circu
lation. Mr. V, C. Dorcmns of New Tork was In
troduced as the person who was to ho the “circu
lating medium” In New York. Mr. Melancthon
Bliss, No. C 8 Wall street, was also represented as
an agent of the concern, and Mr. George N. Ennis
of Richmond Switch, B. 2., was Introdpced as a
half-and-half partner with Mr. Bannister lathe
business. Having discovered the plana of the par
ties, Mr. Bliss at once communicated tho facts to
the authorities in Bhodo Island. The notes which
the Company gave to the Bhodo Island officials
were a portion of the SOO,OOO which had been re
turned to the company for some alterations.

Whisky. ’

Whisky advanced to 85c, bat aUhoneh this was the
price yesterday, after ’Change, sales coold not have
bee o to any extent at 83c. The market closed
flat. Toe logical manner In which to manace this
project oftaxing whisky, would be this; If the Gov
ernment has the power, prohibit distillation nntll'
next May, in every one or Iho States, and make the
tax on it one dollar a gallon. This tax business Is to
be a permanent thing with ns fot years, and now la*
the time to settle the rate and the policy definitely.
Constant chances of the rates and the basis of taxa
tion, will greatly Injure and unsettle trade, and wise
Btaieemen will avoid It. AU know and admit that
wbUky will bear one dollar as well as one cent: so
will tobacco bear a high tax, and there are tnanr
otter article*which ought to be taxed largely, and
many things not at all which arc sow taxodT-

regular and 19c for high colors. -
Motts, da Laines—Those goods arc very firm at
80c with a small stock. The production Is limited at
present, bat will be ample for the Spring.
Balmdbal Sxiitrs—'The trade Is not quite as active,
but wo notice sales of the better qualities ut £B.OOO
55.00 V dozen. ,
Flannels and Blankets—Both classes of goods
are very firmly held. Good flannels conUnuo very
scarce, and those on hand arc mostly held above the
market.
Caupete—The Lowell are veiy firm at 91.15 for eu- ■
per, $t 25 for extra snper, and $1.55 for three-ply.
Foreign Goods—The offerings by auction have not
consisted to any great extent of seasonable goods,
and prices have continued very uneven. Buyers take
hold only as they can find bargains, and at the present
rate of exchange few sooda make any considerable
return to the foreign owner. Some new spring goods
have been opened and a few orders placed.
BOSTON DRY GOODS MARKET.
[From the Boston Shipping List, Dec, 14.] -
There Is very little doing In cotton at
the same time prices remain firm, with little or no"
prospect of "softening." Tho news from Meade’s
army indicates "Winter quart era." If such Is the
result of the recent campaign, trade will soon settle
down. Buyers will feel assured that the general
smash Is at least six months further ahead and that
the Spring trade will not only be safe but very pro
fitable.
A fair amount of orders havebecn received daring
the week by the Jobbing trade, but otherwise UUlo
hns been done except with city customers. Commls-
Mon booses are receiving cotton goods* very sparing
ly.and about all are taken by tho trade as soon os re-'
ceived. The stock of cottons Is probably the smallest
at any time, with a very light supply also In the hands'
ofbpccnlatore.
We learn that the Everett Mills at Lawrence and tbo
Saco Mills at Bsco, which have never stopped running,
are now introducin'a proportion of woolen machi
nery. Tbcreappearstooocmleea difference of opin
ion among tho trade about changes snch as tbo above.
While some think it a more In the right direction,
others think the result will be disastrous not only to
the mills that make tho.change bat to the woolen
goods trade generally. It Is quite a temptation to tho
largo camber of coVen mills nt Lowell and other
places, now standing idle, to turn their attention to
woolens, and the stockholders and the public would
no donltbe temporarily benefited, but is it not possi
ble to extend the manufacture ol woolens more than
the demand now and prospective would warrant?
Before the mills now arranged to work cottons incur
the additional expense of changing their machinery,
would It not be well to take Into .consideration the
tact that thero Is great room for Improve
ment in cotton fhbries, and ibat many cotton
goods now imported should be made here? If the
same enterprise was pat forth la perfecting and Im
proving cotton fabrics, which arc only imperfectly
made or not made In this country, would not a much
better result follow than could be realized from an
entire or partial change to goods of entirely differ
entcharacier.cepeclauy when we consider the flne
tnntlcg character of the market, which, by the time
mills have made their changes .may actually require •
the very fabrics thrown out. Woolen machinery has
rapidly Increased, and If the Increase is net checked
Is It not reasonable to suppose there will sooa be an
over-production of woolens ? All woolen machinery
abo, and all changes now made in machinery, have
advanced about Super cent over ordinary prices. We
would ask both manufacturers of cotton* and wool
ens, beforeprepartng to multiply goods of the same
kind, to turn their attention to goods Imported and
not made. With snch enterprise and skill as have
been shown by them for some years past, we believe
that almost everything Imported could be as well
made here.
New York Cattle Market.
[From Tuesday’s N. T. Tribune.)
Bull’s nxAp.Uonday.Dec.il.—The great weekly
market for beef cattle opened this morning at Forty
fourth street, la a warm-rainstorm, and. as buyers
were led to believe, from the appearanceof the yards
with o very short supply of good cattle. The first
sales were effected at an advance upon last week’s
quotations: a considerable number of extra
quality bollocks bavins sol* at 123126 c - n a
net, ana a large number at 11-ailkc, and
all of the real first-class bullocks * sold
higherl |tban last Monday, up to about noon,
when ft was generally understood that there were
about 8,000 bead already in tho yards, another thous
and expected, some of which came in scattering lots
all the morning from tho other side of the river, and
others were expected to arrive frem Albany before'
night; this had the effect to materially depress tbo
market, so that many of tho salesmen, and most of
the owners, were sure that tho market was not as
good for tlie lower grades of stock as last Monday
and wc arc sureihat tho afternoon sales were not as
good, because they were forced as owners were afraid
to hold over till the closing day, and the buyers
of snch stock, seeing that they haa the Advantage,
determined to hold It. and It soon became evident that
the market would not wind up as well as It did last
Monday. The general average quality of thestockls
pretty fair—there are some excellent droves and a
goodly number of fair western steers, such as sell
freely at 10A10#e Vn. There are quite too many
very mean State ateers, oxen, cows, stags, Ac- which
most be sold very low, say 7fcßc V a, and some lower.
The Government agents, Messrs. Starr and Reed, were
present to-day, but we did not hear of their bayin' a
bollock, and this.when found to be a fact,badanei£ct
□non the market forall of that class of cattle most salta
bleforshlpplne. We haveneverknowuamore uneven
trade than It has been to-day: tho prices have not
only varied between morning and night, bnt between
one yard and another often equal »o half a cent a B
The sheep market and the bog market are both d(£
pressed by tho warm weather. We have never seen a
duller opening Monday Morning than It was In Sixth
street to-day. We think that the full reports ortho
market, as made up to-morrow, will show harder up
on owners of all kinds of stock than last week.
BB Albany Lire Stock Market—Dee. 14.
Brsrvis—The Hew York speculators entered the
market early last week, a number of them coins to
Buffalo ami Suspension Bridge and buying large
droves, In anticipation of an active demand at even -
higher rates than those established last week. Bat
they are disappointed. The advancing prices of the
last month hare .bad the effect to draw out a larze
•apply especially from Michigan and Illinois, and this
clrcnmst nncejcoiubinecl with the fact that the Brigh
ton market wna not np to expectations, has checked
operations and discouraged trade to the extent of
knocking down prices
How It will be In How York. Is somewhat doubtful,
bat even the most sanguine will be content Ifthov ee:
