COMMERCIAL MATTERS, Etc.
Lut year's wheat crop of California is eeti mated at a value of $26,000,000, and the gold and ailver crop at a million less. The whole expenses of the State of Vermont for the last fiscal year, including interest on the State debt, as well as paymtnta on the principal, were $510,230. London demands for her vast population about 600,000 head of beef cattle for her yearly supply, and this demand is constantly growing with the amazing rapidity of her an nual increase of sixty thousand people. Imagine it, will yon? A liviag, struggling mass of cattle, pouring into her markets, which in a year would make a line, horn to tail, over a thousand miles long. An army of beeves stretching from New York to Chicago and half way back again! Mr. Ox, to the front ! Vive le Rosbif > San Francisco now manufactures fire crack ers instead of importing them from China. In two factories with $15,000 capital invested and using raw material to the amount of $7500, fire crackers of the value of $30,000 were turned out last vear at an expense lor labor of $5000. The Havana journals assert that the sugar crop will certainly be 30 per cent less than last year. They also consider the coming tobacco crop of Vuelta Abajo almost totally destroyed, owing to the drouth. For the fiscal year ended with June, 1875, the total value of our imports from Cuba was $66.745,527, second only to those from Great Britain. Our exports to Cuba the same year were $15,586,658. Liverpool Cotton Beport. From Messrs. Watts & Co.'s Liverpool cot ton report, Jan. 14th, we take the tollowing The Position, etc. — Our market (at the mo ment seems demoralized. Ic is difficult to do business. It is not so much a question of prie a, but an absence of buyers. Most per sons say cotton is low, but no one seems to have the courage to buy. This stete of af fairs is due to the continued large receipts at the American ports and consequently in creasing estimates of the crop, to the very large shipments for some weeks past from Amerioa to this port, and to the recent large import here and pressure in some quarters to sell cotton declared on contracts, so as to avoid the trouble and expense of taking de livery. On Saturday last, 8th inst, a publio tele gram from New York reported that the Wash ington Agricultural Bureau estimated the crop at 4,050,000 to 4,150,000 bales. This had a depressing influenoe on our market, not that the estimate was larger than those previously current here, for in fact it was re* her smaller, but it was an increase of about 150,000 .bales on the Bareau's November re port. Owing to the very large receipts at the ports and interior towns for the past fortnight, we should say that crop estimates here now average fully 4,250,000 bales, and transac tions, as a rale, are donbtless based on even larger figures. , In our report under date of 10th ultimo we called attention to the position of our market for the lower grades of Amerioan cot ton, and inasmuch as the present orop prom ises to tarnish a very large proportion of such, we pointed oat their relative dearness then as compared with the better grades. Furthermore, we noted in our report of the 7th instant a sale, to arrive, of shipments from New Orleans, basis Good Ordinary, at 5|d per lb, which was |J ander spot quotations at the time. This looks somewhat like overdoing the thing by anticipation. There is one point that should borne in mind: There was but little demand last spring and summer for the lower grades of American for the very reason that the supply was limited, and prioes in consequenoe relatively dearer than Snrats ; hence spinners were indnoed to use the latter. But Good Ordinary Orleans or Uplands at about 5}d per lb, if free from sa> 1 or dust, is intrinsically oheaper, we suppose, than Surets, and hence at about such prioes we look for the demand to ran very largely on snob grades. Ai to lower grades, such as Ordinary down to Inferior, they are generally difficult of sale, and the more particularly is this the case when the samples show much sand, eto. We have a report that some cotton is already appearing in the American ports of such in ferior quality that it can be bought at 4o to 6c per lb. It would perhaps pay well to buy •Buch cotton and hold it until next summer when freights are low, and then ship here to be sold in the autumn when stocks here are at a low point There is another feature about low gra les of Amerioan cotton deaerving of attention. If prie« for snoh are for some months to come to rale so low as to check the consump tion of Surets, then it may, and doubtless will, bave the effect to check shipments from Bombay, and if so, the American crop of this season may disappear even more rapidly than any one now supposes. In fact there are already marked indications that the crop of India is not going to come forward as fast as expeoted. The receipts at Bombiy for the past fortnight have amounted to only 29,000 bales, against 55,000, and the ship ments to Earope to 24,000 against 42, 000, same time last year. Moreover, a private telegram received this week from Bombay, reports that the Cotton Commis sioners for the Bombay Presidency estimates the orop in the Berers and Hinghenghaut at about 1100,000 bales I«kb than last season. No such official estimate has, however, yet been made public. At Alexandria the receipts continue very large, and are to latest dates about 70,000 bales in exoere of same time last year. The stock of cotton held by English soin ners we now estimate at 123.000 baits, again t 181,000 last year and 173,000 the year betöre. Basin«« Troubles In Cincinnati. A number of heavy failures have recently ocourred in Cincinnati. The most prominent were J. L. Wayne & Co., iron manufacturers, and D. T. Woodward & Co., in nearly the same line of business ; also, Smith & Me Al pine, commission merchants and large deal ers in dried fruit. The Chicago Inter-Ocean says: " The aggregate liabilities in three three failures is stated to us. by a gentleman from Cincinnati, at over $2,000,000. in the case of J. L. Wayne A Co., as near as we can under stand, the difficulty is a suspension requiring only an extension of oredits rather than a fail ure implying bankruptcy or any very serious loss to creditors. The firm made large sacri fices of real estate in order to get cash to sus tain their credit, and for this purpose in one instance 6old a piece of oity real estate that cost $115,000 for $50,000." A Financial Consideration.— If the United States Senate rejects Piuohback, the probabil ity is that Gov. Kellogg will appoint Grant's brother-in-law, Casey, in his place. He can do this by the Senate's rejection, or by the Senate's failure to act until after the adjourn ment of the Louisiana Legislature, which will be two months from the first Monday in January. If, however, Pmchback sees thit the Senate is playing this little game on him, be will resign and checkmate K-llotrg and Grant by throwing the election of a United States Senator into the Legislature. If Pinch back is admitted to his seat, he is entitled to $20.000 for per diem and mileage.— St. Louis Republican. This item of salary and mileage, whether more or less than $20,000, is not likely to be overlooked by one who views offices through monetary optics, both as to what they cost and what they are worth. This persistent claimant of a right to sit among the conscript fathers of the Republic is a good judge of the financial value of offices of every description, and can readily ran',through the whole sched ule of estimates from constable to President of of THE COMING} FIREMEN'S PARADE. Th« foremen of the different companies oomprising the New Orleans Fire Department met at the offioe of the association, City Hall, last night The meeting was called to order at 7:30 o'clock by Chief Engineer Thomas O'Connor, who, in a few remarks, stated that the ol jeot of the call was for the purpose of making necessary arrangements for the coming pa geant, to take place on the 4th of March. On motion of Mr. Wm. R. Johnson, Mr. I. N. Marks was elected Grand Marshal, and was accordingly called to the chair. The line of march will be the same as last year, only reversed, the procession parading through the First and Fourth Districts before going down town. Mr. Marks stated that it was customary for Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 to head the line of march, and asked that they do the same at this parade, as usuaL It was so ordered. Mr. Wm. R. Johnson, Foreman of Meehan ics' 6, rose to a point of information and asked the Chairman to give the meeting some idea concerning the collection ot finances from the city. Mr. Marks stated that he had an interview with Mr. Brown, Administrator of Accounts, and was informed by the gentleman that in a few days be would be prepared to settle with the association for two months' service. After which the meeting adjourned. "Outside barbarians" are apparently not growing popular in the great Empire where prejudice is almost immovable, China, general war on foreigners is thought to be looming up. The Chinese have been making improved artiliery of the largest calibre and adopting breech-loaders for tbeir immense army, so that an excursion to Pekin will not be as easy as when the French and English made their last retaliatory march and sacked the palace of the Emperor.— N.
