SAVANNAH MARKETS. w£eki.y R*poar. OFFICE OF THE MORNING NEWS, I Savannah, Ga., April 6, 1886. f Gknbrai. Remarks - There waa little or no variation from previous reports with respect to business in the tenoral market during the past •Reek and in pretty much all its departments the situation has remained practically the same with no noteworthy features in any. The distri bution of supplies has hee in moderate volume ,nd but few orders are being received outs ide of the usual requirements. Interior buyers show more of a disposition to hold off for the present, and there is but a very light reassorlment busi ness going on, owing to the season’s backward ness. The present weather, should it continue, it is expected will no doubt gtir up consumers and stimulate the trade in the spring and summer goods. In gro ceries there is little or no change from that of the previous weeks’ report, and while travelers are pretty steady on the roads there is little in the character of the orders coming in to en courage yte average jobber, or reflect any immediate improvement in trade, the movement being confined to the staple articles of consumption and for goods to meet actual wants. Dry goods orders are reported in very moderate numbers, the demand for spring goods being pretty well covered there is no new business, nor will there he until buyers are forced to meet the require ments of warmer weather. In all other branch t. no material change is apparent and in tone remains about the same as for some time past. There were no price changes of importance, and most commodities continue in buyers’ favor. Collections are very slow. Money is moderately easy. Domestic exchange easy, with foreign dull. Securities are lifeless. The following re view of the weeks, business will show the tone and the latest closing quotations of the differ ent markets to dav. Naval Stores—The market for spirits turpen tine was dull, and prices were slightly easier at a small decline There was a very moderate request and a light business doing. The total sales for the week were about 600 casks, with values at the close tic. lower than a week ago. Rosin—The market was very irregular and un settled, and prices fluctuated to a considerable extent, although at the close showed quite an ad vance in the whole list. There was a fair de mand, which was freely met. The total sales for the week were about 10,000 barrels. In another column will be found a weekly compara tive statement of receipts and exports from the beginning of the season to date, and for the same period last year, showing the 6tocks on band and on shipboard not cleared, together with the official closing quotations. Rice—The situation in this branch of the trade is practically unchanged. The orders appear unimportant in volume although buy ers are inspecting samples to some extent. There is considerable competition in the Western markets with the foreign article, particularly in ti e common and medium qualities, which re stricts trade in domestic. The sales for the week were about 600 barrels. The following are the official quo tations of the Board of Trade. Small job lots are held at higher: Fair 4%@5 Good 6U Prime sJfj @6 Rough- Country lots 95@1 10 Tidewater $1 15@1 30 1 otto \ —The market was very dull throughout last week and business quite unsatisfactory. There was a pretty full stock offering, but buyers apparently lacked orders or were hold ing off in anticipation of lower prices, the in creased receipts giving strength to the latter position. Holders, however, as a rule, were not disposed to make concessions, although buyers gained a little in the matter of price on the week's business. The total sales for the week were 628 bales. The following are the official closing spot quotations of the Cotton Exchange: Middling fair 10 1-16 Good middling 9 11-16 Middling 9 7 16 Low middling 9 1-16 Good ordinary 8 9-16 Ordinary 7 15-16 •S>a rs'ands. —The receipts for the week up to 4 p. m.. as reported by factors, were only seven teen bac-. ihe sales for the same time were 9*2 bac-s. The market as quiet and prices com ps rati vil.v easier, an i holders to effect sales were obliged to make considerable concessions. The above business was on the basis of quotations al hough the common grades, if wanted, would 1 a e to be sold at much lower figures.
