The monetary sUnotton at Chicago (■ quite
the reyeree of that at New Fork or London. In
both these places great case prevails In the dis
count market. We hear of o case at New York
in which no more than 8 per cent per annum
could be obtained for a six-months* loan. The
Bank of England has recently made successive
reductions In Us rate of discount, which, after
the Glasgow Bank failure, wont up toil percent.
Yesterday the rate was put down to 3 per cent.
In Chicago the money market has been crowing
more active. Tbe rale for loans has advanced.
Call loans, which have been as low as r> per
cent, and till recently have been 0 and 7 per
cent, are now marked up to 8. A call loan was
taken by one of the Chicago banks yesterday at
7# per cent, but subsequent transactions were
at 8 per cent. The Board of Trade demand has
been heavy, In consequence of the Immense
accumulations of grain here. Country banks
have not been borrowing much. The currency
movement In and out remains light. Bank
clearings were $2,500,000.
Transactions In Government bonds were limit
ed, but prices generally moved upward. The
0s of 1881 remain steady at 106#: the 5-20 sof
ISG7 advanced #, to 101#; the 5-20sof 1868#,
to 102#; the KMOs to IW#; the new 5s of
I SSI #, to 105#; Iho 4#s #, to 105#; the 4
per cents #, to SB%.
Gold Is In uomluol demand at 100# In green
In the foreign-exchange market the offerings
of bills were light, In conseuucticc of the check
iu the export movement, uud the small ordeis
from the other side for grain uml provisions.
Sterling grain nnd commercial bills were 482%.
French bills were 521%. The actual rotes for
sterling were 485 and 488, and the posted rates
485% nnd 488%. Bankers’ bills on Paris were
619% and 510%; Antwerp, 520 and 517%; com
mercial, 528%; llelehmark, 95; commercial,
IM%; mitlders on Holland, 40% and 40%; com*
tnerclal, 89%.
Hio noteworthy rise of consols from W% to
90 MO, and the reduction of the Bank of En
gland rate of discount to 8 per cent, are sterns of
Improvement In the British financial situation.
The bullion In tlto Bank of England increased
$1,450,000 daring the post week, and the pro
portion of the bank's reserve to Us liability
went up to 80% per cent 'flic Bank of Franco
gained over $1,000,000 In specie during the
week. The change for tho better ot London
and the reduction of the bank rate were fore
shadowed by the London TVmes of Jan. 10:
For same time past the Dank of England has
been doing next to no discount business at all, and
tin* rates In the open market, where a keen com
petition Is maintained for the few bills offering,
have receded to about p«r cent, which is I l *
below the bank's nominal discount rate. As the
bunk’s reserve Is Improving and is expected to con
tinue to improve, aided by the $405,000 In gold
which is looked tor at the end of the week, them
is good reason to believe (hat the Directors may
decide to-morrow to lower their rate, if nnthlnu
happens la the meantime to shake their conn
douce la a continuance of the present (inlet state
of financial affaire. 8o far the reports of the
bank* for the past half-year, as a rule, are satis
factory, and the position, os a whole, Is much
sounder. The proportion of lltjnid assets Is
greater, It may bu assumed, In all caies than It
was before tho late difficulties commenced; and
this means more money available, so that thorn
would appear to be no longer any reason, looked
at from the point of view of supply ami demand,
why the bank should continue to remain so far
above the real value of money.
Silver at London, which a few days ago ad
vanced to 51 pence, bos fallen again, uml In

The condition of the stock market may bo In
ferred from the drop of 7 per ceut in North
western common tn one hour. The opening
quotations showed firmness, and the market ad
vanced, but later (n the day there was a sharp
break, though It wan not so severe ss that of
Tuesday. The lowest prices of the day were
those made at the close, but Northwest com
mon was an exception, os It rebounded after
the drop from 03% to 50, and gained 8% by
the close. The market Is viewed with that wide
rorlance of opinion that usually prevails tu
Wall street and Us suburbs. The bulls point to
the success of resumption, the Inflation of the '
currency, the effect of tbo Tension bill
In letting loose |50,UX) I 000 to 1100,000,000
of money, ami the returning prosperity
of the country. Hut opposed to them Is an
equally confident 4>arty who are betting on thu
decreased earnings of the roads, the damage
done by thu winter storms, and thu fact that
thu rise In stocks has already continued so long
that It may be fairly considered overdone. Tlio
view is held by the first class of operators that
the severity of thu recent fluctuations U duo to
the death-struggles of the bears in un attempt
tu beat back the rising tldu of better times
and better prices. Tlhto is one feature
about the market on which observers
agree. There is a largo class of invest
ors who are scanning thu stock list for invest
ment stocks. They want something bettortban
4 percents, or railroad bonds, which have all
gone very high. The buyers of railroad bonds
easily become buyers of railroad slocks. These
Investors are putting away the slocks they buy,
and so adding to the strength of the market.

The friends of "repatc” on the Board yester
day evidently thought they wore voting to carry
out the advice of Hamlet to Ids mother,—to
Throw sway the baser part of it.
And live the porer with the other hair.
The clerks arc now ruled off the Board by a
majority of 232, und can In future act only us
messengers. It Is believed by many of the older
members that tbls Is an extreme measure which
followed the other extremeof too crvutlatitudu
In the issue of clerks' tickets, and Unit It will
not be found to wonc well. A great many
members are unused to active trading, but may
Hod less dinicully In recommencing if the at
tendance is materially lessened by the with
drawal of the clerks. Some of the members
who have hitherto bad little to do believe that
their business will be much Increased by the
change, and many claim that there will now be
ample room fur the Board without the proposed
Very few of the members seem to have con
sidered |lhu question, What will become of the
clerks) There Is little doubt that not a few of
them will become members, and the result may
be a great Increase In the value of membership
tickets; they have recently sold rather low.
Tim leading produce markets were generally
firmer yesterday, with mure doing in the aggre
gate, though some departments wore quiet,
barley being dull. There was a very good de
mand' for provisions, wheat, corn, and oats,
which woa believed to be due to less scarcity of
frvlght-rodro, the belter weather of the post
few days having been favorable to the movement
ot cars. Tim news from other points was not of
a marked charade! In cither direction, except
that wheat was Una In Milwaukee.
There was a moderate city ami country de
maiul fur staple and fancy dry-goods, and (he
market maintained tho steady tone heretofore
characterizing It. Groceries were active far the
time of year, and were firm generally. Coffees
were moving very freely, and were were llrmvr
than at tho ocginlng of the week. Sugars also
displayed Increased strength. In the dried-fruit,
canned-goods, ami flsli markets no notable
changes were developed. Butter is In better
supply, and Is easier. Cheese remains linn, the
demand being more than ordinarily good for the
season. Bagging and leather remain quiet ami
unchanged, Tobacco U dull and weak, prices
being freely shaded all around. Oils ore re
ceiving more attention. C'oul and wood were
quoted quiet and steady.
Lumber was ateady under a moderate de
mand from the city ami interior. The wool and
broom-corn markets were unchanged, fair orders
being placed at the quotations, bred* were
Army under a better Inquiry. The demand fur
bay was light, the city buyers preferring loose
hay, which Is uow plenty, and few outside
orders were received. I'utatues were steady.
Tim demand for lota was Baked, and the retail
sales light. I'oultry was rather scarce, and
fresh stuck sold promptly at full prices. Green
fruits continue to meet with a fair retail demand,
and old •prices ore sustained. Eggs were
