Explanatory. The following, from a correspondent, ap peared in this morning's Times : Flour—-A lot of 1500 barrels is reported sold for Cuba on private terms. —Picayune, Bulletin, etc.. 28th. '•Flour—Quiet and unchanged, the de mand being light, and confined, so far as re ported, to the loial trade.— Times, 28th. * " £" d * * .* A lot of 150 tierces sold for Cuba on private terms.— Picayune, Bul letin, etc , 28th. "Lard—Quiet, easy and unchanged, and but little demand outside the jobbing trade.— Times, 28lh." The Hoar sale was actually made in a single lot, on the 24'h, but the 25th and 26 h being holidays, was not reported until the 27th. We find no report of it in the Times. The lard was reported to us bv the broker, Mr. Conway Boyle, on the 27th, without qualification; but we are now informed that only 50 tierces were on hand at the time and the rest was to arrive. The trade are so well satisfied with the full ness and accuracy of our reports, that it is, perhaps, unnecessary tor us to add that we spare no efforts to obtain correct information and publish nothing for which we have not good authority. Liverpool Cotton Market. From Messrs. Watts & Co.'s weekly cotton report, dated Liverpool, December 1Ö, we ex tract the following: 7 he Position, etc .—The statistical position of our market is now attracting rather more at tention than it has for some time past. The stock here—including the error of 88,630 bales in the figures of last year, discovered at the close of December—is now 124 720 bdes less than one year ago, and there are 62,000 bales less afloat for this port from America and India. If we further include 57,300 bal- ■ decreased supply in and afloat from London, we have a total deficit in and afloat for Great Britain of 244,020 bales now, as compared with this time last year. Sixty-eight estimates of the American crop of 1875-6 have been collected here this week from merchants and brokers. These esti mates range from 3,718,000 to 4,483,000 bales, the average being 4,106,715, which is rather less, so far as we can learr, than the average of estimates in New York and New Orleans some two or three weeks ago. Our impression is the trade on this side, as a general rule, are basing their operations, in order to be on the safe side, on estimates of abont 4 250,000 bales. The tendency, however, both here and in America, seems to be towards lower esti mates, because of the moderate receipts at the ports during the past fortnight. The reedp's from 1st September to 28ih ultimo were 155, 000 bales larger than during same period last year (1,430,000, against 1,277,000), an increase equal to over 12 per cent, but during the pa it two weeks there has been an actual decrease of nearly 5 per cent There no longer seems any reason to doubt that the American crop of this season will contain a very much larger proportion of low, dirty and sandy cotton than last season; per haps as mnch as in 1872-3. It therefore be comes an interesting question, what will be the probable vaine of the low grades ? The stock of cotton held by English spin ners we now estimate at 78,000 bales, against 168.000 last year and 198,000 the year before. At Manchester this week a better demand has been experienced, and a fair amount of business has been done. There is, however, no activity, and some departments continue to be neglected. At Bombay for the week ending to-dav the receipts bave been 10,000 bales, against 12,000, and the shipments to Europe 6000, against 11.000 same week last year. Tea and C'oflee—No Duty to be Levied. ■Washington, Dec. 21.— It was undoubtedly the intention of Mr. Kerr, when he appointed the Committee of Ways and MeaDS, to select a committee that would commence revenue reform by placing a duty on tea and coffee, bnt it is definitely ascertained now that no such thing could be made law at this session, either by vote of the House or Senate, or even of the Committee of Ways and Means, which body is favorable to the thing on general prin ciples. There is quite an effort among strong ma nipulators around Congress to secure a duty on tea and coffee, and, failing in that, to get it on tea alone. But the test of making the receipts meet the expenditures of the govern ment has been decided by a determination to level the expenditures down to the ordinary receipts, and to adjust the tariff ou the basis upon which it now stands, with more equita ble provisions. The Republicans, in majority, as protectionists, oppose a duty on tea and coffee, while the Democrats say they will not assume the responsibility of its re-imposition. 1 believe that a two-thirds majority of the House, without regard to party, are against it, and while the Senate Committee favors it, the Senate has a large working majority against it Next April or May, when the proposed tariff bill comes up for discussion, these pre dictions will be appreciated.—A. 1 .Bulletin.

I am starting a Southern Shoe Factory. I only ask of you, gentlemen, for your patronage. I gnatantee that I will give you better satisfaction in my line than any establishment in this city—cheaper and of a better material. Gentlemen, you all know that there are a great many laborers and mechanics in this State who have no work nor any food for their wives and children. If we will start our cwn factories and pat ronize each other we could easily get along with our factories of all descriptions. Our money is all given to the North and West, which is millions of dollars. I have been established in the Shoe Manufactory for the last twenty-live years, and call the attention of 1 he community in general. lours respectfully, JOHN HANSEN, jy27 3dp 35 Canal street. _ POLITICAL. p* Bd,< ***®* of Eleventh Ward for Demo 5 1876- LonserTative state Convention, January J AD.
