No New Davelooments Among
the Banks—Clearings,
The Sew Syndicate—The Nickel Swin

The Produce Markets Tamo and Gen

An Early Decline, Followed by Firm*
nesa in the After*
The banks are la a state little better than sus
pended animation. Counter transactions are amah,
and the discount bnalnes* does not add enough to
loans to replace the maturing paper (hat Is paid.
Merchants and other cnsloracrs'conllnne to meet
their accruing obligation* with commendable
promptness, although bualneis la dull. The sup
ply of negotiable paper Is light. Rates are 7®lo
percent. New York exchange was sold between
banks at AOftTSe per SI,OOO premium.
The clearings were $2,200,000.
The Syndicate, which was recently organised
for the purchase of Government bonds, included
the First National Dank of New York, the Ameri
can Exchange Bank. Knbn, Loeb A Co., and a
prominent banking house with connections in Lon
don. As ia known, the Secretary of the Treasnry
declined the offer of the Syndicate to buy $lO,-
050.000 44 per cents at 10iy. IBs price was
105 S. The Syndicate claim that the acceptance
of their offer would have removed a great danger
to the resumption of specie-payments. They ap
prehend under existing conditions a heavy impor
tation of Government bonds, which wilt finally
produce an export of gold. This would put a stop
to tho resumption of specie-payments. The ac
ceptance of their offer would have enabled (ho
Syndicate to so interest the London holders as to
stop the importation of bonda and turn the tide of
gold to thia country.
Tba bullion valna of the 6-conl nickel piece Is
14 cent*.’ Secretary Sherman has publicly da
dared bU preference for the nickel piece over the
silver lialf-dimc, It is charged that a nickel ring
exists, for whose benefit the 6-cent nickel was
originated and la kept in use. A prohibitory tariff
is maintained so os to exclude foreign nickel, and
by (his coinage arrangement with the Government
the proprietor of the sole nickel mine In the conn*
try gets a good price and a ateady market for bla
product. The people of California refaie to ac
cept the nickel coins, and ask why the gold and
tilvcr mines of the Pacific Coast are not entitled to
a Government bounty as ranch os the nickel mine
owned by Joseph Wharton.
Tho passage of a law in New Jersey reducing
tho rale of Interest to 0 per cent, and allowing no
contracts at a higher rate, makes eight Stales
which have adopted so low a rate wltboul allowing
the parties to nettle upon a higher rate. In six
States tho legal rate Is 0 per cent, with no restric
tion upon a contract rate, and In nine other Statea
where tho legal rate la 0 per cent the contract rate
sillmitedloßorlO per cent. There are in nil
Alteon States which do not limit the contract rate,
and fix no penalty for nsory.
The amount of Turkish paper money afloat Is
paid by the bankers of Constantinople not to be
excessive. Fifteen years ago It was $50,000,000;
It Is now $00,000,000. This amounts to $3 for
each Inhabitant, while In Russia tho proportion is
SB, In Austria SO, and In Italy 91L The Turkish
paper money la nets fall legal-tender. Tho Turk
ish hankers have Issued a memorial In which they
proposed to make gold the sole standard, and use
tbe present paper money as a fractional currency.

The upward movement in Western Union Is sup
ported by a story that tho Western Union Com
rany, through holding a controlling Influence in the
Atlantic A Pacific Company, will proceed at the

There Is considerable anxiety here In bank circlet
at the condition of things In Massachusetts. In a
quiet war there Is a steady liquidation going on
there, especially In the savings banks, and this is
the secret for tho movement nf the banks to secure
what must lx* called a "stay law.” We are told
that of the 170 odd savings tanks la the State, 120
odu are In favor of such a law, the practical work
ing of which would create a power which could
step In between depositors and their debtors—tho
savings banks—and regulate the amount which the
depositors could draw. Of tbe $250,000,000
deposits In the savings tanks there, about
SUB, 000,000 (in giving there figures wo
have uot the oillcial reports before ns, but
believe; them to be approximately correct) are in
verted In rc*|.e*ute mortgages, the payment of
which cannot be forced, and which cannot bo sold
eoasio make tbe security available Iti the early
future for the creditors of tho banks. They also
hold large hues of United States bonds and railroad
mortgages. Nothing, however, can Justify such a
law as Is proposed, if the banks are permitted by
law to nay only such part of tUclr debts as they
can easily do. why should not merchants, or, what
Is more to the point, the depositors of these banks,

New Tour, March 21.—Tho Public says ex
changes of last week shed a hopeful gleam overtho
seventeen leadlngcUlc*. for the two weeks ending
March 10. as compared with the corresponding
weeks last year, show the smalt toss of A 5-10 tier
cent, as follows: Losses— New Tork. 0 1-10;
Philadelphia. 18 4-10: Chicago. 112-10; New Or
leans. 1 2-10; Cincinnati, 4 4-10; Baltimore,
8 0-10; St. Louis, 12 3-10; Louisville. 8 5-10;
Pittsburg, 114-10;Cleveland, 211-10; byracuse,
17 4-10. Oalns—Boston, 6-10; San Francisco,
40 8-1 U; Milwaukee, 3.11-10; IndlanaDn)l*.2.*MO;
New Uaven, 1 8-10; Lowell, 2 8-10. The decline
at New York, New Orleans, and Louisville Is duo
entirely to the transactions of the first week of
March. A gain appeared in the second week. Mil
waukee docs remarkably well, because the wheat
movement Is large this year, and was nnnsually
small in 1877. The Increase at Boston is probably
due to tho Improvement In the foreign trade. Home
of the manufacturing towns are also showing
greater activity. On tho whole the returns are
better, prices considered, than they have been for
many weeks. Unquestionably the passage of the
Silver bill has given new hope ana confidence to
some, and In part because the bill passed was no
worse, and in part because It la still expected to
Erove belter in effect than it really will. This
ope goes far to make good business, and It is clear
thst whether well or 111-founded, hope has actually
revived in some quarters, and a belter business
may follow.

ped direct from noa-Karopcau ports Is six limes os
great. Oats, rys,and barley, from European ports,
are exempt from duty.
Tbe Icadieg produce market# exhibited few
points of Interest yesterday. Hogs were firmer,
and provisions cosy; while breodunffe mostly
tended slowly downwards, In eympatby with re
ported dullness in Nsw York, and a tamo feeling
in grain in Liverpool. British consuls wore quoted
ous point higher, and there was little news of Im
portance from political ceotics in tbe Old World,
while rainy weather here wu accompanied by
rather small receipts of grain, except corn, but tbe
reported outgo wu fair In volume.
Dry goods were moving on a generous scale.
Bot only wu there a liberal volume of mall orders,
bat there were many buyers present in person, and
B‘>l. iitKt
(he aggregate olatrlbntion reached satisfactory pro
portions. Prices were steady and nniform. In
the grocery market no very pronounced changes
were noted. Coffees displayed more steadiness,
and in wears slightly increased firmness was ap
parent. Toss and sirups were easy; other lines
nominally steady. Batter met with a moderate de
mand at previous quotations. - Cheese waa weak
and declining. No quotable changes wens devel
oped In the drted-fralt market. Of foreign
varieties, prunes alone were firm. Domestic dried
were fairly steady. Fish were without quotable
change, being in good demand a*, very full prices.
There waa a fair movement In oils at previous
prices. Lard and turpentine were weak. Bagging
remains quiet. Leather was reported dull and
The lumber market was active and firm. Trade
Is much better tnanayear ago at this time and is
steadily gaining In volume. There Is talk of ad
vancing prices on the first of next month. The
hardware merchants report a fair trade at the cur
rent quotations. Seeds were lower, except the late
varieties, nnderllberal offerings, with a diminished
demand, many of the more urgent orders having
been filled, though considerable timothy was sold
nt the decline. The hay market was firm under
small offerings, with a good Inquiry from the local
trade and shippers. Bides, wool, broom-com and
salt were unchanged. Poultry was in'moderate
request at Irregular prices. Ecgs were weak, the
receipts continuing largo.
Ball freights were in fair demand at tbs recent
reduction, tho basis being 20c per 100 lbs on grain
to New Tork.

fully Bcper 100 ns higher. But Liverpool reported a de
cline of od per cwtln lard, and other markets were
lame, while there wu a scarcity or buying orders here,
so that most of tho trading was local. There were free
sellers throughout, and tho market slowly weakened
