Brisk Domnncl for Governments—
Foreign Exchange Dull.
Heavy Chicago Bank Clearings—Stock,
Ball and Strong.
The Proilnco Markets Steady—More Do
ing In Spot—Futures Quiet.
Very Largo Beliverios of Provisions and
Groin—Stocks in Gtoro.
There was a brisker demand for Government
bonds’, mostly In small lots. Prices remained
steady. The Os of 1881 were quoted at 100%,
tile 64»s of 1807 at 103, the 5-20 s of 1808 ot 103%,
the KMOs at 101%, Uto new 5s of 1831 nt 104%,
the 4s at 104%, the 4 percents at OS%, ox-lntcr
ost, and the currency Os at 121. The Chicago
Bub-Treasurer has received the new 910 4 per
cent certificates. The banks that deal In Gov
ernments will all carry them for sale, and it Is
expected that the demand for them will bo act
ive when thcyhuvo been thoroughly Introduced.
Largo amounts of Government bonds have In
tbo lust few days born shipped to England.
Chicago transactlonsln foreign exchange were
light; The market was dull, with an advance In
rates.. In Chicago sterling grain hills were 48-1,
oml French bills were 523%. The actual Chi
cago rales for sterling were 480% and 4SS%. In
Now York the actual rates were the same. The
posted rates for sterling were 480% and 450.
Frcuch bankers’ bills were 518% and 515%.
Consols continue to advance, mid have now
reached 07 8-10. The price of silver has fallen
again, mid was quoted yesterday In London at
4015*10 pence per ounce.
Chicagohauklcicarings were unusually large,—
$8,800,000,—1n consequence of the heavy deliv
eries of grain and pork on the Board of Trade.
The hanks reported a lighter demand for money,
> engagement having been made in advance lor
the loans needed for the settlements. Rates
temporarily are strong, but call loans wore yes
terday negotiated on cash collateral nt 5 per
cent. The current time rates were [email protected] per
cent, with some small transactions at B®lo per
cent. The currency movement was small.
A comparative statement of Chicago bank
clearings for the quarters ending March 81, ISTS'
and 1870, is furnished by Manager D. R. Hale,
of the Chicago Clearinghouse:
Janaary, February, ami March. ..$320,874,047.05
January, February,ami March.... 5244,505,400.80
Some Chicago capitalists ou tho Board of
Trade have purchased tbo onco famous Vulture
Mine of Arizona Territory, formerly owned by
Phelps A Co., of California. Stamp mills and
other works arc to bo erected at once. An In*
corporation with 310,000,000 capital stock has
been made, under the namo of the Central
Anzoua Mining Company. The stock will be
listed and sold on the New York Stock Ex
change for “all It la worth,” and perhaps more.
Stocks were dull, but held their own pretty
well, notwithstanding the tightness in the New
York money market. Tho Granger stocks were
the speculative favorites, and Dio Northwests
scored an advance, tho common opening at
CO%, advancing to 00%, soiling down to 50%,
and closing at 00%; thu preferred ad
vanced from 83% to 80%, and dosed at
80. Tho coal stocks had un upward
tendency. The Improvement In thu Iron
business, and tho comparatively small stocks on
baud, were the arguments used for an advance.
Delaware & Hudson gained %, to 41%; Lacka
wanna %, to 48%: ami Jersey Central %, to SO.
Western sold ns high as 107%, but closed at
100%, a decline of % below tbo oponlug. Kan
sas Pacific advanced %, to 22. Most of the oilier
active stocks showed a decline. Michigan Cen
tral went down from 80% to 85%; Lake Shore
%, to 71%; St. Paul common %, to 41%; tho
preferred %, to 80%; Erie %, to 25%; Ohio &
Mississippi %, to 12; and Missouri, Kansas &
Texas %, to 0%.
As It la understood that tho Northwests A Ut.
Pauls are to bo used os headers in tbo coming
bull movement, “on tbo California plan,” thu
following statement of dividends paid by tho
two companies in tho last nine or ten years will
be of Interest. At tho same time, any Idea that
there must bo a correspondence between tlie
value of a property and thu valuation of its
stock on Wall street is expressly disclaimed.

Tho electric light has had another success at
Rouen. It has been used there In lighting M.
Mnnchon’s cloth factory, and with satisfactory
results. Tho foremen, who are doubtless best
able to judge between the two lights, since thev
never quit the building, do not hesltato to de
clare that the electric light la much superior to
that of gas, and that they, as well as the female
operatives, uro much less fatigued after the
long hours, bv reason of the absence of the
beat radiated from the gas relloctors,which were
Immediately over their heads.
Tho dealings In railroad bonds, In Now York
last week, were comparatively light In volume,
but prices on the whole wore fairly well main
The Ban Francisco HuUittn bas collected tbc
returns of thirty-two mines on the I’acftlc Slope
for February. The product was: Gold, $050.-
100; silver, $1,(J?2,700; load, $83,100. For the
first two months of the current year the bullion
yield, on account of the diminished product of
the Bonanza mines, has been only $3,772,800,
atralnst $0,430,700 in January and February,

The boys on ’Change yesterday, exhibited
some “boet-sngar from Kansas." Being the Ist
of April, the statement was taken cum grano
sails—by those who lasted It.
The statistics of grain supply and demand
which wo get. every now ami then from the sea
board arc Intensely interesting. They arc also
true till contradicted by the facts. Like the Ilg
ured-up majorities before election, they do some
times miss the murk.

Yesterday was a busy day In produce circles.
Being the first business day of the mouth the
delivery of grain mid provisions on April con
tracts was in order, and most of those who had
stuff to deliver elected to send It round early.
The deliveries were unusually largo in pork,
lard, mid wheat, and quite freo in corn and;»uts.
The result was an early weakening In spot grain,
which was helped by a report of decline lu wheat
In Liverpool. The depression was not great,
however, ami the markets recovered tone after
about the first hour. The feeling was really n
strong one all round In view of the circum
stances. Some heavy cheeking was done. Ono
firm made out its check for $831,000 in payment
for wheat, and another firm Oiled out a cheek for
a little over a quarter of a million. The volume
of trading was not largo, however. Most of tho
deliveries had been already provided for, and
there was not much disposition to transact new
business, for which reason the markets wero
more quiet than usual. Tho fact that a munici
pal election was In progress had probably some
thing to do with tho quietude noticed.
Tho demand for dry goods continues una
bated, and prices display great firmness. Thera
was no marked change in tho market fur staple
and fancy groceries. There was a well-sustained
activity, and the prevalent feeling was cheerful.
Codecs were firmer. Sugars remained easy.
Nothing new was developed In the market for
domestic and foreign dried fruits. A liberal
business was in progress, and tho general tenor
of prices waa unqualifiedly firm. Fish were In
fair request, at firm prices. Nothing new was
apparent In tho butter and cheese markets.
Oils, paints, and colors were quoted fairly activo
and firm. Coul was dull and weak.

Lumber continues active. The dally ship
ments are large, and fresh orders are received
from nil parts of the West. The offerings of
cargo lumber continue light, and sales arc mado
slowly, buyers being bardty ready to take hold,
and prices ore not yet mado on standard grades.
Wool was steady, und broom-corn unchanged.
Seeds were very quiet, and not materially al
tered, though some kinds were rather weak.
Tho demand for hardware mid metals continues
active, and the list prices are generally adhered
to. Nails were Irregular, tho price frequently
depending on tho sizo of the order. Poultry,
eggs, and game were steady.
Tho Association created by tbo Vessel-Owners’
Convention is holding grain freights at 0c fur
corn and o%c for wheat to Buffalo. Shippers are
holding off.

what depressed the market hero early, os It was
