A Quiet Market—Condition of

The rradnee Market Irregular, ami !.cm Active-
Provisions Firmer, aol Then Kailtr,
Grain Rather Strong at the Opening 1 , but
Very Weak in the Afternoon,
The market In financial circles continues quiet
nil round. 'Hie large amount of farm products
arriving dots not seem to require any effort on
the part of the banks to carry It for their cus
tomers. They report still ample means for all
that may arrive between this mid Hie opening of
navigation. In nothing has the business of the
cUy shown a tnoro decided change within the
last lew year* than the ability of our own banks
to accommodate their customers with tln-lrown
funds. Only a few years ago large parcels of
produce and provision paper would, during the
winter, bo sent East for rediscount. Ar
rangements would' also bo made
with Eastern bunks for large lines of
currency to circulate. More recently, at
ibis season, the strong managers of the hanks
Id nearly all the leading towns west of us would
come to this city during the dull winter months
and pick up through our banks what really good
paper they could spare or find on the market In
order to get interest on their money tilt the
active spring business opened. Now all this Is
changed. Our own banks absorb nil the really
good Paper Hint Is made here, and their only
anxiety Is for more. Not even in the matter of
foreign exchange do our bankers—with rare ex
ceptional cases—ask any favors of Wall street.
They take more foreign bills on direct ship
ments to Eurooo than our Importing mer
chants, travelers, mid others can exhaust, mul,
taking tho year round, largo parcels have
to bo sent eastward for sale in the seaboard
cities. Tilts accumulation of canllnlls sure to
go on till the West shall declare herself entirely
independent of the seaboard, and Unit at no
distant dav. Indeed, were It not for the Im
mense-sums still due for Interest, and the prin
cipal debts contracted for rebuilding the city
after the fire, the premiums on lire ami life In-
Btirance, nml perhaps some otJior things Unit
might bo mentioned, Eastern exchance would
now rule the year round largely in iavor of Chi-
cago. This most desirable consummation, un
less some oilier great calnmiiies overtake ns, is
hound to bo reached lone belore the century
closes. Let those, therefore, who ore now, per
haps, struggling hard under more than their
Share of this load be of (rood courage. The

wnerc 10 per cent is exacted arc exceptional.
The bank clearings were ?2,000.000.
As usual, the banks will bo closed on Satur
day, Ihu ‘23d, Washingtons birthday. All pay;
meats due on that day, and Sunday as well!
must be paid to-day (Friday). This condenses
the payments of three dues Into one; but in the
present condition of affairs It will probably
cause no inconvenience.
Government bonds show very little chance,
anil the demand continues rood. Wu quote:

Tue report of the Treasurer of Ontario iu In*
annual statement, ebon’s that Uio revenue for
the last year was 95,231,421. falling ilinrt of Hu*
estimate, which was 91,430,000, and of Uie e*.

The estimated revenue for 1810 Is §£,3BB,Bofi, and

a reduction of the Indemnity to members.
The people of Nevada arc about trying the ex
periment of running Hu lr Slate, County mid
Municipal Oovcrnmouis upon a silver basis, with
a triple standard. A bill, Introduced hy Cassidy,
of Eureka, which, if we mistake not, has passed
Hie Senate, provides that all taxes, fines, fees,
and costs connected with public matters may be
I aid In silver coin of the United Slates. But, In
order to show that the people of Nevada have
till! confidence in gold mid the battle-stained
money of the Union. It Is provided that nothing
In the act contained shall prevent payments
from being made In United Slates gold coin or
legal-tender currency. The bill Is supported by
the entire press of Nevada, uml Is, therefore, al
most certain to become a law. Tnls Is os far as
Hie Slate Legislature can go without entrench
ing upon the prerogative of the Federal Govern
ment concerning money. But since Nevada Is
Hie great silver-producing Slate the people are
of course anxious to show their profound belief
In It ns their true currency. The proposition of
Senator Cassidy is only an Illustration of a
phrstdnn exhibiting faith In his own medicine
by taking sttong doses of It.
The above Is from the San Francisco JMlethi.
It might have spared Itself the sneer about
“gold and bailie-stained money.” Silver Is
bound to circulate on a oar. with that Kind of
money, not only In Nevada, but all over the IV
clliu coast. t

more marked ut Interior points than at the largo
