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
Country lots [email protected] 10
Tidewater $1 [email protected] 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. The bet
ter qualities are more firmly held:
Common Georgia and Florida 19
Medium 90
Medium fine 21 @2l

The stock market was more active to day,
and for the second time this week approxi
mated a business of half a million shares; at lb**
same time the tone was strong throughout and
prices steadily advanced, the lowest price*
being made in the first half hour and the highest
in the last, Anal gains ranging up to nearly 3
fKr cent. The passage of the bond bill by the
Senate was the principal stimulant to specula
tion, the number of outside buying orders un
d*Tgoing a marked Increase, while tbo steady
buying and advance gave rise to the imnriwsmn
that some powerful lund was under the rise
The temper of the room at the first was only
moderately bullish, an t cliques and insiders
rather discouraged any further advance, but
the current was t**> strong for them and thy
afterward joined in tha movement. The news
was not specially bullish, but Cnic&go sent tel**
grams of a more hopeful tone, ana were
not without their influence. The advance was
slow and steady and gained force athe day
wore along, while the activity increased jn pro
portion. There was little or no excitement, e\
cept in Rending, in which transactions were
again extremely heavy. St. Paul was also very
active, but its fluctuations we •• comparatively
narrow until late in the dav. The market was
active and strong at the opening, the gains ex
tending to )4 per cent., and the list continued to
move up. under the lead of Union Pacific,
throughout the first hour. Then* was then a
slight sct*aok. and the market became more
quiet, but lake Shore and New England came
to the front before noon, and after that time
there was a marked increase iri the transu* ;
tions, while the whole list joined in the renewed
advance. The highest figures in many sticks
were reached before 2 o’clock, alter which there
was another reoction of small proportions, but. I

Wh** it, oals a id corn continued to decline, and
Huai prices for the day were a shade below last
night's dosing. The market was the result of
the feelings of local operators. There was a
fairly firm closing late yesterday, higher prices
on the curb, and light receipts 1 1 day. These
things, with the belief that, certain nulls are
only waiting n I.iv nahle opportunity to bulge
tin- market, caused hlghkl prices. Imt the only
strength apparent was the leault of covering,
so that everything weakened gradually until
the close Fork was offered more freely than
buyers were disposed to lake it, and a weak
feeling developed June wu the weakest , and

Lieut W S Cowles, commanding U S steamer
Deepatch. reports to the. Branch Hydrographic
Office that lie made a thorough and exhaustive
search for the numerous sunken dangers re
ported along the New Jersey coast. The sand
schooner which was sunk Lrthe S s,nd Eof
Sandy Hook Lightship lias disappeared. Three
torpedoes were exploded mi the wreck of sunken
steamer E < Knight with the effect ,f removing
all existing dangers, and vessels of the deepest
draught can pa*s in safety over her. The other
wrecks were sought for. but in several eases
only wreckage, consisting of unattached spars,
were found in the localities where the wrecks
bad been reported. The search was extended
for the throe wrecks off Five Fathom Bank
Lightship ami only wreckage found. The recent
blizzard may have assisted In breaking up the
wrecks. Lieut Cowles states itiat the entire
Jersey coast from Sandy Hook to Cape May is
clear of sunken wrecks, and navigators need
have no fear in that regard.
