There was considerable strength In Govern
ment bonds, owing to on raster feeling In the
money market. The 10-los advanced from 101%
to 101%, the new 5s of ISSI from 101% to KM,
and the new 4%s from 104% to 104%. The 4
per conU'wcro firm at 09%.
The same easier tendency in the money mar
ket that relieved Governments of downward
pressure was visible in the foreign-exchange
market. Chicago offerings of bills continue
light, in Chicago sterling grain hills were l? 3,
mid French hills were weak nt 523%. The actual
Chicago rates for sterling were 455% nsul 437%.
In New York the nclurnl rales were the same.
The posted rates for sterling were 480 nnd 483%.
Trench bonkers’ bills were 518% and«olo%. •
‘ Consols opened at 00 IMO, and advanced to
971-10. The Hank of England gained 92,035,-

Country orders for New York exchange are

An agitation for another national Bank
rupt law has been begun in New York by
the Hardware Board of Trade. Meetings have
been held to consider the points of n now law,
mid'a committee has been appointed to take the
inaltdr in band. The murcnanls who petitioned
for a repeal of the lost law are now declared to
bo anxious for rc-cnaclmcnt.
About the condition and prospects of the New
York money market, the Journal of Commerce
An Impression prevails that borrowers hare seen
about the highest rate for money that will bo de
manded at this season. A spasmodic advance be
yond 7 per cent may be effected by manipulation,
out probably not from natural causes. The dally
borrowing demand Is comparatively light because
all the large operators have obtained on time all
that they require, omit lie iwrrmvcrs now in the
market are those who take small lots of $5,000 or
SIO.OOO. Tho supply from the banks Is Jnst now
somewhat restricted, ns tho reserves of some of
the Institutions are ho low that they must cm] in
Joans until tho demand from tho Interior le satis
fied. Meanwhile there la another source of supply
which promises to bo largely drawn upon if the
we for money Is maintained at about 7 per cent.
5Ve allude to the negotiation of sterling, thus in
directly employing London capital temporarily In
this msrket. The pressure or funds from this
source will bn likely to keen the call rale of money
from advancing beyond 7 per cent. If the rate
should fall to 5 and show Indications of remolding
at about that figure, negotiations of sterling would
probably cease.
The wonderful property at the head of Pough
keepsie Gulch, San Juan County, Colorado, has
Just been sold to the lion. 11. A. W. Tabor, of
Colorado, one of the principal owners of the
famous “Little Pittsburg," of Lcadvlllc. The
negotiation was made by Mr. J. C. Dunn, of
Denver, one of the pioneer miners and pros
pectors of that country, himself the owner of
several valuable properties. The Alaska prop
erty is behind one of the largest and richest
mines over discovered in the State of Colorado,
and is unquestionably the most valuable prop
erty now owned by Gov. Tabor.

Only 0 car-loads of No. 2 spring wheat re
ceived hero yesterday! The proportion of that
grade to the total receipts is very small.

Wo oro informed that the British shortage on
breadth of land sown to wheat for ttic next
crop is 750,000 acres. That is some 8,000,000
quarters, Instead of so ninny bushels—a very
big deficit. The cheap prices at which Ameri
can wheat can ho laid down in Great Britain
are each year rendering It more and more dim
cult for tho British farmer to compete with his
enormous rents and taxes. Tho situation is
forcing him to the raising of garden stuff, etc.,
which pays better, because the cast of trans
porting those articles across ttic ocean is larger
In proportion to tho cost of raising than is the
case wltti wheat and corn.
The Board of Trade of this city has decided to
adjourn at 1 o’clock next Tuesday far election
business. The original proposition, to adjourn
over tlie whole day, did not prevail.
There Is a wide difference of opinion (n regard
to the rates of lake freight. Carriers are un
derstood to have decided to charge Oc lor corn
from Chicago to Buffalo, while some shippers
have the hardihood to offer 8c for the same
service, and one round lot of room Is said to
have been offered at 4c, to bo loaded between
May 1 mid May 10.
A letter from Marshall, Mo., reports that the
(winter) wheat has been badly damaged by the
cold, dry weather of the past two weeks, mid
that another ten days of the same kind of
weather would ruin the wheat crop In that sec

A prominent firm In this city Is reported to
have been rather bard pushed during the past
few days In filling sates of corn (made sometime
ago) to bo delivered hero this week. Thu corn
not arriving on time, they were obliged to pur
chase It on the market here, which accounts for
the recent relative strength In spot corn.
Thu leading produce markets were moderately
active yesterday, ami generally steady. There
was a fair trade In provisions, the demand being
steady throughout. Wheat was easy, as a con
sequence of better weather, though the skies
were fur from clear, and corn was firmer, under
a continued good demand fur shipment. Barley
was weak, and other grain exhibited little
change. The skies showed signs of clearing up,
and an early opening of navigation seemed to
be generally expected, but there was little
movement In lake freights, os rail rates oro so
low us to attract the attention of shippers.
In dry-goods circles there was 0 continuance
of the activity and firmness previously noted.
Buyers were In numerous attendance, and the
orders by mall also reached pretty largo propor
tions. Groceries met with a good general do-
niiiml, ntul ruled steady mid Arm. Prices were
without appreciable change. Nothing now* was
developed In thu market for foreign and domestic
dried fruits. Business was active, and all the
staple fruits were unqualifiedly Ann. Pish were
quoted as before, trade ruling quiet mid firm,
mid steady rates. No price-changes were noted
In butter and cheese. Oils, paints, and colors
were moving freely at fully sustained prices.
The tobacco market rcrouius dull, with values
much unsettled. According to the Louisville
Tobacco and Grocery AVi«, the amount of leaf to
bacco in the open markets of the world on March
1 was 177,07 b hbds, us against 123,020 hhda same
time last year,—an Increase of 40,05 b bhds. Of
the Increase 00,425 hints Is In Europe.
Lumber was fairly active at unchanged prices.
Dry stuff Is generally quoted steady. The next
report Is expected to show a large decrease In
the stuck here, and the now season will open
with much less lumber la the yards than a year
ago. The ice Is moving out of the lumber
ports, and It is expected that considerable lum
ber will bo received boro next month, tlio most
ot It being the product of last season's logs.
The demand for metals and hardware continues
active, and full late nrlecs ora obtained for
everything except nulls, which have weakened
under n keen local competition. Seeds were In
good demand and Arm. Wool, hay, broom

CATTLE—Sellers had no reason to complain at
the course of yesterday’s market. Tlioro was not
a brisk demand by any means, but In a quiet way
a largo volume of business was accomplished, and,
notwithstanding tiro fact that the receipts were
large, tho prevalent fouling was fairly Arm,
Wednesday's prices being uniformly well bus*
talued. In quality tbs olTormgs wore hardly up to
(he recent average, tho proportion of common and
medium grades being noticeably more prominent
than for some days previous, wbieh will account
for the slightly lower overage of prices. All
dorses of buyers were fully represented, and alt
claires bought more or less freely,—exporters at
81.75(0,5.83, Eastern buyers at $1.00(34.75, feed*
on at f3.u034.00, and local butchers aud esunors
at G0®4.00. Tho market closed quiet, with
but little stuff leftover.
