Friday Eveniho, April 3,1874.
It has boon oflou claimed tbnt wbat appeared
to- be for the lime a groat calamity to the city
was, in its results,' productive of many real, if
not of corresponding benefits. Tho groat fire,
though it destroyed about two hundred millions
of property, has boon tho moans of giving us a
vastly fluor olty than wo had boforo. Stimulated
by tho abundance of money tbnt followed and
tbo desire to socuro nu income from tbolr prop
erty, business facilities wore Increased far be
yond tbo immediate demand for stores, and
especially for ofllccs. For months past a largo
number of splendid buildings have boon
staudiug Idle, aud owners have boon put
to their wits’ cuds to know how to
got tho wherewithal to moot interest and
taxes.. While this is a groat calamity to
them, ills beginning to bavo' a marked effect
upon tho business of tbo city. Taking advan
tage of tho low prico of rentals, especially out of
tho'inimodiato centres of business, parties are
coming in .very considerable numbers from sur
rounding Western cities, aud from tho East, to
got themselves well established boforo this ora
of “ overproduction ” in buildings shall glvo
place to. a gouoral scramble for any opportunity
to haug out a sign. Reports of bankers to-day
fdvo a sure index that this increase in now firms
a various departments of trade is steady and
promising. One I’rosldont told us ho
sometimes received four or five now
accounts per day, and all with whom wo
conversed at least several every week. Some of
them woro combinations of loading clerks in our
larger houses with Eastern capitalists or firms,
and aomo woro from oltios East and West. Wo
add that tho accommodations for now houses
are by no moans exhausted, and tbo more and
tho sooner they oomo the bettor. Thus, If many
property-holders are mourning over empty
buildings, tenants and tho city generally wut,
reap great and permanent benefits. •
The weather to-day has boon abominable, and
business slow and dull. Bank clearings wore
only a little more than half of wbat they woro.
for tho past two days, reaching only about;
$3,899,909. Tho demand for money with some,
of tho banka is active arid all they caro for; ‘
while a few have a largo surplus. One banker
told us to-dny bo would bo glad to take half a
million of satisfactory paper at 8 per cent. Tho
usual discount figure is 10.
Exchange is a shade firmer, but tho .rate bo- !
tween bauhs and to .customers is par.
Tho note-brokers eve doing comparatively
little to-day. Tbo rango for transactions is [email protected]
10 per cent per annum. Largo first-class five-'
year loans c&n be placed at 8. !
No one can form any definite judgment as to'
what Congress will finally do from what occurs
from day to day, and therefore tbo voting in the
Senate yesterday did not attract very much at
tention in financial circles. Tho inflationists
Boomed to have got tho worst of it In tbo day’s
doings, but their ultimate defeat can scarcely bo
expected. An amendment to tbo Finance bill
was adopted adding $10,000,000 to tbo National
Bank circulation. It was voted for by tho oppo
nents of expansion, in order, if possible, to pro
vent on inflation of $110,000,000. Tho bill was
laid on the table, but it will bo brought up again
early next week.
A mistake occurred in our table in this morn
ing's Issue, taken from tho quarterly reports of
our savings banks. Tho Commercial Loan Com
pany was credited with having $188,291 of real
estate and office fixtures. It should havo boou

Tboro waa Home talk about circulating n paper
on ’Change for alguaturoa, demanding of tho Dl
rootors of tho Board of Trade on explanation of
the why and wherefore that aiiguat body invested
aomo $14,000 In Chamber of Commerce stock
after having, solemnly resolved, “not to do it
again." It can scarcely bo that certain members
are so' much afraid of being tinned out of tho
building that they fool they must own it to pre
vent such a catastrophe. If it bo ao, then popu
lar opinion la wrong for once, ns tho general im
pression is tho other way.
This being Good Friday, was generally ob
served ns a holidav in produce circles in London,
Liverpool, and Now York. Hence, thoro wore
no dispatches from thdso points, and operators
hero wore obliged to operate on what they con
ceived to bo tho merits of tho case, without as
sistance from elsewhere. Tho markets wore
however, generally stronger, though loss active, *
as a good many dealers hold off. or operated
more sparingly than usual, on finding that Chi
cago was, for tho nonco, loft to its own re
No nows has boon received from tho Straits of
Mackinaw up to 1 o’clock to-day j but the ther
mometer at Alpena and Escanaba stood at 16 and
12 degrees at 7 oclook this morning, aud tho fall
ing of snow here, though not heavy, was not cal
culated to brighten tho hopes of those who wished
for tbo opening of tbo season of navigation
much earlier than usual. Yet tho day was tho
first of tho season in a potential souse, as some
charters woro reported, aud it was rumored that
several others had boon taken, or vessels boon
ordered to load on owner’s account, to tbo ox- .
tout of nearly 2,000,000 bu. This waa probably ‘
a wide exaggeration. Tho preparations for mov
ing out aro.not so rapid as this, though tboro Is
undoubtedly a bolter inquiry from British and :
Eastern operators, about the cost of grain; and :
this has stimulated to firmness in frogbts, both.
on tho ocean and by rail to tho seaboard. i
Dry goods woro in good demand, and tho tone
of tho market for all standard cotton produc
tions was sensibly firmer than at tho beginning
of tbo week. There wore no price changes:
worthy of noto. In tho grocery market a fair
degree of activity was witnessed, with no quota-;
bio change in values. Sugars were loss firm
than on the preceding days of the week, while
coffees wore hold with moro confidence.
Prices of rice, sirups, molasses, and teas
woro firmly maintained. The butter mar
ket was moderately active and easy. Re
ceivers seem anxious to prevent any augmen
tation of stocks, and ovlncoa willingness to con
cede a little whore concessions aro necessary to
enable them to offoot solos. Choose remains'
firm, under a fair demand and scant supplies, at
[email protected] for mild Western factory, and at [email protected]
for Now York do. Canned goods aro quiet and
some linos aro easier. In tho fish and dried
fruit markets thoro woro no now features, trade
ruling quiet at about steady rates. Coal la in
active .and weak. Pig iron, leather, tobacco,
aud wood remain quiet nt former quotations;
Paints aro active. Oils met with a good inquiry
at yesterday’s prices.
At tbo lumber yards a fair number of or
ders from tho country woro received aud placed
attboourroufc prices. Shingles on track are
12#o lower, now quoted at $3.12#@3.25, and
niioat at $3.00(5)3.12#. Tho decline is duo in I
part to tho increase in tho receipts, tho arrivals I
by water having boon quite liberal of late. The
offerings at the wholesale market wore email
aud olnolly piece-stuff, which is quoted nominal
at [email protected] per m. The interior demand for
metals'aud hardware continues active, and near
ly all tho loading staples are steady. Tiu is
rather weak owing to an unsettled fooling East,
but without quotable change. Naval stores wore
in lair retail demand and steady. Ropes,
especially Manilla, are firm, and an advance
in tbo latter is likely to occur soon.
Building materials woro steady, under a fair lo
cal demand. Timothy seed was dull, oxcopt
choice qualities, which mot with a moderate in
quiry. Prices woro easier. Other seeds woro
without material change. Wool and hops re
main quiet, also broom corn. Potatoes woro
dull and easier, though choice varieties, owing to
scarcity, woro hold firmly. Poultry is in light
supply aud firm. Eggs woresolllng at 12#@130.
Lako freights wore quiet, but there was some
thing doing at last. A total of throe vessels
woro reported taken, which will carry oat about
60,090 bu wheat. The engagements woro re
ported on private terms, which was generally
regarded as a sign of weakness in rates. The
most probable figures woro 120 to Ouwogo, and
12#o to Kingston. To Buffalo, for wheat by
sail, carriers asked 7#o. ' -
- Hiphwinos wore quiet and unchanged, lathe
absence of any dispatches, oxcopt one from Cin
cinnati, quoting that market firm at 020. Sales
here wore confined to 100 bria at 930 per gallon,
at which figure tbo market closed steady.
Provisions woro again aotivo and strong. This
remark applies chiefly to moss pork, as for two
or throe days past, that being in urgent demand,
at an advance ol 200 per brl, while lard and
moats woro firm at yesterday’s quotations, with
not much demand. Hogs woro plenty and a
shade easier, and reports from other points in
dicated that what is called summer paoulug la in
fair progress. But this will only affect the sup
ply of meats and lard. Tho hogs ore not fat
enough to make mesa pork; hence tho stock
of that on which speculators may operate
during the summer may bo said to bo “in sight,”
and though wo have a largo quantity on hand,
there is not much to tho back of us. Tho pork
now in Chicago is mostly in strong bands, and
the short interest are obliged to pay asking
S rices, while those anxious to got into the
oal aro so numerous as to mako tho
market very aotivo from their buying alone.

Thoro woro very few export orders on thomnrkot,
as European dealers wore enjoying tho holiday,
aud loft their agents here to do tho same. A
few lots were bought on Eastern account, and
for local use; holders being very firm in their
views, in sympathy with wheat. Bran was

Wheat was rather less active, but quite strong
and veuy steady. Tho May option advanced Ufo
while cash wheat was ohout 2o higher, uio
premium on May deliveries diminishing to dk’o
under a good demand for this mouth. There
was no public news from Liverpool or New
York, but private advices from tho former city
were said to quote that market as
stronger, and there is no doubt that English
operators are turning their attention more fully
this way, now that water communication bids
fair to ho soon restored. A good English de
mand is anticipated, and it is not Improbable
that it existed hero to-day, hut concealed by op
erating through brokers. A good many of the
April deliveries are supposed to bo still unmade,
and some of tho purchases made to-day wore
understood to ho on short account, while tho May
deals, which are out probably to the extent of uu
the wheat now hero, began to bo filled In when
tho market turned upward, and it was rumored
that pur stocks wore soon to bo largely reduced
by shipments. Tho snow-storm also tended to
firmness, by threatening to reduce tho volume

Tho Now Orleans JPicayuno has accounts from
all parts of tbo Gulf States showing that the
farmers aro planting extensively of corn, wboat,'
oats and rico. Labor Is abundant, and is se
cured at rates much lower than havo heretofore
Tbo change of tbo polioy of planters from
hiring on.shares to monthly wages has had tho
effect of clearing tbo plantations of idlers, and
of bringing into tbo field a largo number of la
borers. The weather has boon most favorable
for an early start of tho oano. and tho indica
tions for a good crop are gratifying. In many
of tbo parishes, the extent of land to bo sown
in rico will.bo.ono-foucth more than was culti
vated last season, From tho Attakapas (South
ern Louisiana), corn will bo the crop upon which
tbo planters will roly. In many quarters it is al
ready up. and seems to bo flourishing.
From I’oxaa flattering reports aro received.
Tho farmers aro in fine spirits, and hopo that
tho end may bo as good os the beginning. In
Alabama largo tracts of tbo magnificent prairie
and canobralce, which stretch from Bemopohs to
Oolumbus, buvo bouu prepared for ooru audooro
,ols. Many plantations have boon converted into
stock forms in consequence of tbo exodus of
nogroos. After three successive failures of tbo
cotton crop in that section, tho planter has been
forced to diversify his crops, and, from his In
ability to borrow money, finds himself at last on
tho right road to independence.
As on indication of what Georgia is doing tho
newspapers aro filled with congratulations that a
complete revolution has been effected m agricul
ture. In tbo country around Columbus about
100,000 bushels of oats havo boon sowed, which
is almost twice tho amount of last year. Tbo
ooroago in wboat Is much greater than lost year,
and farmers are preparing to plant 80 per cent at
least moro corn and uso 50 par cent loss of com
mercial manures.
Altogether, tbo outlook for 1874 in tbo Gulf
States is most promising.
Tbo Pluladolpbia Ledger says : Tbo supply of
autbracito coal at the principal seaboard ceutrea
is estimated within 400,000 tons, and there is a
seeming Indisposition on tbo part of tbo great
carrying companies controlling tbo trade not to
increase tbo amount by early pressing coal on
tbo market. Individuals and Arms whoso coals
bavo tbo reputation of being brat quality wo
understand have contracted as nearly up totboir
capacity to supply coal as tboy dcsiro to do at
this time. The last public solo of Scrauton coal,
and tbo notice to roduco tbo production of coal
15 per cent during April, are indications that tbo
prices of coal will bo maintained at tbo monthly
advances heretofore announced. Tbo Commit
tee of tbo associated coal companies, which
monthly adjust tbo prices of coal, bavo advanced
tbo price for tbo month of April 5 cents por ton.
Tbo trade just now.is healthful, though not as
vigorous as wo bavo sometimes known it to bo,
and a largo tonnage may with reasonable cer
tainty bo calculated on for this year. There
were in operation in tbo Schuylkill cool region
In 1873 lUG colliers. In the same year twouty
eigbt colliers wore forvariouaroasonsabandonod,
principally, however, for tbo reason that tboy
bad ceased .to bo remunerative in competition
with mines moro favorably located and worked.
ThoNowYork JJullelin says: “Perhaps’ least
needs to ho said upon what la one of the most
eoiioua obstacles,—-the look of adequate terminal
facilities for handling and transhipping heavy
freights; for thin evil has already (liveried so
muon of our trade to Boston, Montreal, and
other points as to havo aroused our merchants
to concerted action for providing an effective
remedy. It has come to bo well understood
that wo cannot much longer hold our
trodo in grain and other bulky
freights against ports which provide
direct access for loaded cars to elevators, ware
houses, and ocean vessels; and this being un
derstood, wo can only expect to see this branch
going steadily away from us until wo provide
just such Accommodation. How much trade wo
shall lose from this cause depends simply upon
how long we are in providing adequate terminal
facilities; and we know of no stronger argument
than this fact for tho gentlemen who have taken
this matter in hand pushing their measures with
sleepless energy, unless it bo that tho business
thus driven elsewhere will prove more dilliciilt
of recovery.”

The tin market is In an unsettled condition at present.
Plff tin has again 'declined in Now York, nua quota

due to several facts, among them reports of discoveries
ofricht u mines In Australia. These reports are dis
credited by many dealers,—at least it is thought that
they have been magnified. Another reason is doubt
less the continued dullness of trade in Now York,
