TRADE REVIEW Bus biss S ill Much Below Fo a:r Years (f Prosperity. a SHARP INCREASE IN COMMERCIAL LOANS. Present Demands not Equal to Ex pectations of Cotton Blanu r acturers —Demand for Cotton and Corn not Much Help to Speculators. R. G. Dun k Co's, weekly review of trade raya: Though steadily iucreas ing, business is still mnch below its volume in former years of prosperity and many express disappointment. Yet there is some gain every week, with more hands at work and more mills in operation, and the result, largo purchasers for consumption, cannot be long delayed. In aome branches it is felt already; there is large distribution of finished goods and the demand for commercial loans has sharply increased, especially in dry goods and the iron and steel branches. While manufacturers of ootton goods are looking forward with mach confi dence, the present demand is not eqna) to i xpectations, nor has the curtail ment in production of priut cloth ac complished the desired change in con dition. The baying of wool, mainly of a speculative character in expecta tion of new duties, continues remark ably large. Sales at tbe three ohief markets for the past week were 10,791, 900 pounds and for three weeks have been 28,790,800 pounds, of which 16, 628,200 were domestic, whereas, the largest transactions in any prêtions year at this season were 17,105,876 pounds in the corresponding weeks of 1862, of which 11,886.626 were do mestic. No great increase haa yet ap peared in the demand for gooda, al though a few more mills have fonnd enough orders U> start, perhape in part anticipating a future demand. The expectation of new duties does not yet influence the good markets, as might be expected. Tbe demand for wheat and oorn has not given mnoh help to speculation. The ootton market has also been al most lifeless and while the prioe baa gained a small fraotion, the narrow ness of demand here and abroad baa il a natural influence. Reports about the coming cropa are interesting, as nsual to speculators. Failures for tho week have been 216 in the United State«, against 261 last year and 50 in Canada, »gainst 49 last year. • Small Mlaz-j at Min lug ton. J.
