as a newspaper correspondent, and for

bureau at the State capital. Mr. Glenn
retired Friday night apparently in good
health and feeling all right every way.

ease or apoplexy. Hia sadden demise
was a great shock to the State officials
and members of the legislature, nearly
all of whom he numbered among hit
warm personal friends.
He May Not Have the Money.
State Treasurer Worth, at Raleigh,
N. 0., Saturday, notified the heads of
the varions State institutions that owing

by the legislature and the decreased
vaine of property, he cannot pay any
extra appropriations this year or nntil
he finds he has a snplua after paying
interest on four per cent bonds and
necessary rnning expenses of the gov
ernment, and that they are so notified
in order to avoid making contracts
which might embarrass.

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
The ootton market has also been al
most lifeless and while the prioe baa
