Consols opened and closu.l at OS 0-15. The
Bank of England lost 8000,000 In bullion during

principal feature the applications of Board of

Hio settlements of the first of tho month.
Rates are stronger, and call loans are quoted at'
7 per cent. Tho current time rates are T(j?8 per
cent, with some small transactions at 8(2*10 per
cent. The currency movement is not large.
There is agood demand for Now York exchange,

City scrip finds a ready market at 07%®03 buy*
Ing, and 03%®00 selling.
Stocks were weak. The market is Irregular
and baffling. Some experienced observers de
tect lu it indications that the Insiders are selling
out. Current prices yield them handsome profit#
on their ventures. The giving of points to buy
stocks that are known to bo nearly worth
less bears out this view. This is one of the
dodges Invariably resorted to, for the purpose of
unloading on the public. Western Union was
depressed by the regular semi-annual appearance
in the field of a competitor. It opened ot!01%,
and sold down to 103, closing with a slight re
covery at 103%. Atlantic & Pacific went down
from Bl%to 33, and staid there. Kansas City &
Northern went on In the upward movement laid
out lor It, rising from 14% at the opening, to
15%, and reacting at the close t0*15%. The

at 43%. * St. Louis «Ss Ban Francisco common

14% to 14, and sold finally at 14j£. St. Joe also
had a downward trend, the common opening at
18%, selling up to 10. and closing at 18, the pre
ferred going down from 41% to 40%, and clos
ing ot 40%. Alton woa 77. Michigan Central
attracted attention by dropping from 81% to
78%, dosing at 70%. This was understood to
be in pursuance of a plan to put Michigan Con
trol down and Lake Shore up. The latter ac
cordingly advanced from 73 to 72%. Reports of
dry weather continue to operate against tliu
Granger roads. Northwestern common lost %,
to 63%, the preferred %, to 80%; St. Paul com
mon %, to 41%, and the preferred %, to 81%.
The coat stocks suffered with tho rest of the

The Now York TrUntue says that the general
buoyancy of tho bond mid stock markets has a
mors substantial foundation than tho rumors
which aro bo freely employed to support par
ticular stocks. Tho great fact In tho situation
Is that persons who have held room than SIOO,-
000,000 of fi ami 5 per cent bonds, now to he
redeemed, havo fulled thus far, mid will fall to
,tlm end, to obtain Government 4s in place of
tho bonds retired. This Is now rendered cer
tain by the character of tho sottlomcuts made
for tho newly-placed bonds, at least 1100,000,000
of them having gone into the bands of holders
who were not'the possessors of the bonds re
deemed. Many believe that thu amount is still
larger. Some of this dislodged capital will find
employment in manufactures mid mluhig, but a
very largo amount remains to be invested in
the securities of railroad or other corpora
Tho condition and prospect*) of tlio coal trade

conclualoni to tble und might bo at once entered
upon. Hut the matter of a revival of tho combi,

able approach to It la tho adoption of a pooling

mediately before adopting tho combination which
followed, ami that ruled more or icaa satisfactorily
for the remainder of the year, but which now Duds
no favor at the buudu of anyone of the puttie*.
The Indications of the trade now umuUtauubly
point to higher price* of coal in the near future.
The aupply of coal in the market la now unusually

A significant fact is reported from England:
Some of the farmers there have asked fur u re
duction of as much as 50 per cunt In their rents,

cessions by the landlords. They am not able to

There is reason to believe that a good deal of
wheat yet remains in the hands of British and
French farmers, which will bo brought out be
tween this mid harvest-time, Prleos have ruled
so low that they could uot sell except at a loss,
and many of them held on, while
wheat from the United Slates bus been
offered very freely, pouring into some French
ports like an avalanche. The avidity with which
our wheat has been taken by Western Europe
the past few months has been the salvation of
our trade. Without it prices would probably
Pave declined hero to a poiut that would have
meant starvation to tho American farmer. Tho
movement Is simply unprecedented, and it Is
keeping up briskly now, notwithstanding the
recent lock In lake freights. Our leading ship
pers arc moving grain fiom thu country as well
as from this cltv, by rail, at rates
which arc low as compared with the
figures asked by water, especially when
thu time occupied In transportation
Is taken into the account. Ono of them is now
sending 200,000 bushels of wheat across tho laku
from Milwaukee to Grand Haven, there to take
cars fur thu seaboard. Tills accounts, perhaps,
for tiic Independent attitude assumed by ship
pers in treating with lake carriers.
A paper was circulated yesterday for signa
tures among men who have telegraph “ tickers 11
in their otllccs, asking that Heurbohm's quota
tions may be sunt to them before tho oponing of
'Change, us is tho ease in Now York.
This region was visited by a cold wave Tuo«
day night, and a good deal of apprehension was
expressed yesterday In regard to it. Many
feared that tho fruit have suffered severe
ly, mid some even thought that the growing
grain Is Injured. The season is mi early one,
mid vegetation Is forward in many places, while
it la nob so healthy as if there hud been more
moisture. This partially accounted for thu
greater firmness in cereals yesterday. *

These tables showthat Iho Importation of cereals
Into tbo Argentine Kepubllc hua been almost
slopped, and that In the your 1877 the country tint
only met tta own wants out ot iismalxu growth*,
but exported over and - above a surplus nearly
double Us entire export in (he four previous years.
The saute progressive feature, although to u lesser
extent, ta noticeable with regard to wheat, which la
reported to have shown Iho largest cron this sen
sun ever grown in all tho Fast of South America,
representing an approximate value of 415,000, •
Harley, so far, has had a much smaller outlet on
that side of tue Atlantic, uartly because tho pro
duction Is comparatively small, and partly, it may
be, that other sources of aupply have a narrower
marglu there.
Flour, of which the local production, particularly
lit tbu upper und Interior provinces of the Kcpub-
He, la large, having now all but ousted Importation
from Chill aud tbu United States, will doubtless
follow suit, probably finding Its way In quantity to
Hrltlsh markets lu course of another season.
Selpmenla of uaixu and wheat are already being
freely made to London, Llvcrnool. Antwerp,
Havre, Italian pons, nud even tu thu i'upo of (loud
Thu loading prouuco market* worn niodoratc
ly active rustetday and generally llrmor. The
feeling was somewhat unsteady curly, with some
fears of large deliveries to-day on May con
tracts in provisions and grain, while a tow op
erators were apprehensive of a further decline
in wheat and corn, owing to the lock in Irkc
freights; hut the colder weather here, with a
continental demand for wheat In England, gave
more strength. In provisions thu early tono
was tame, because hogs were lower, but there
was a letter demand, though all round <1
seemed to be chiefly for futures.
Domestic and foreign dry goods met with a
generous demand, and were as firm ns before.
Trade is not ns active ns a fortnight ago, but a
decline in tho demand was to be expected after
thu middle of April. Prices still show great
strength. Jn the grocery market there were no
specially new features. A good demand exists,
nml both staple and side goods wero held with
firmness. Sugars am receiving Increased atten
tion, and arc working Into a firmer portion.
Tho dried-fruit and fish markers worn unchanged.
There was a fair movement In butter ut previous
quotations. Cheese rumnlns unsettled. Tin*
oil market was fairly active and steady. Coal
was dull, with prices so Irregular as render
steady at the yards, with a good demand from
tho interior. At thu sale-docks the altorings
were small, nml thu demand fair at recent fig
ures. The wool and broom-corn markets were
quiet mid unchanged. Seeds were in good de
mand. and timothy advanced several
cents per bu. Hay was steady, the
best grades being in fair request.
Green fruits wero In good request, Mediterra
nean varieties being firm under moderate offer
ings. 'Die receipts of strawberries are Increas
ing, am! will probably bo liberal next week.
Poultry was steady and scarce, and eggs sold at
former figures.
The situation in freights is unchanged, so fai;
as heard from, except that some vessel-men re
ceived a proposition yesterday to let their ves
sels bo loaded at the elevators Immediately, ami
fix the rates to-day. As they would not accede
to this, It is fair to presume that they felt quite
strong In their position, and expected
shippers to como to tbclr terms. Tho grain
now (a store Is ' gathering storage
charges at the rate of %c per bu every ten days,
and some carriers expect that the deliveries cf
wheat and corn to-day on May contracts will bo
largo enough to induce shippers to secure
freight-room at 4c for corn to Buffalo and 4%e
for wheat to do. Through rates by lake and
canal to Now York arc quoted at lo>ii(Sll%c for
corn and wheat. Through by loko and rail are
quoted the sumo as ail rail, which Is SOu per 100
lbs to New York.
Letters received from n gentleman traveling In
lowa and Minnesota for the express purpose of
finding out the wheat situation state that thu
seed is growing well; no trouble about that.
The weather has been favorable for sowing, am!
with rain In tiic future the crop will be the biggest
t-verraised. In somo places ncarlyonc-third more
ground has been seeded to wheat than over be
fore. In some places they have had no rain for
us much as five mouths, but thu growing wheat
looks v*cll as a rule. If thu dry weather should
continue more than about a fortnight longer,
thu crop will bo light, but It Is not too late yet.

Itntlsh markets were steady, with a Continental
demand reported, and New York was firm, while
the cold weather of the preceding night In the
Northwest caused a better demand, our receipts
were light, uml shipments ditto. The reaction
was partly due to the fact that otrorlngs for May
were not large. There had been sumo pressure the
previous day to place May wind, and sumo people
expected tout the pressure would Increase yester
day, which weakened the tone on Tuesday. The
.May dual seemed, however, to h<i nearly all pro
