There was im- nmveft ai tivitv in the irrain markets to-day. but values suffered a sharp decline. Wheat de clined 1 cent before nooc, and weakness was shared in by both corn and oats. The sharp decline was not attributed altogetner to any one cause. The market has been heavy in spite of all attempts to rally it, and very many oiierators, who were naturally bulls, believed rnur rtirtnei ninmwinn was necemuirv there was much profit in buying. But tho chief causes of the weakness were undoubt edly the reportsof the failure of the bank ni Bordeaux, France, coupled with the weak and lower grain cables from Liverpool.

Tlie Nautch girls arranged themselves into a half circle, their t-arlet costumes forming a bright crescent terminating at either end in a mass of sjiectators, whose half naked lxxhes, varying m color from pale olive to mahogany, were arrayed in costume scarcely less showy than the dancers'. The chaperono torn touts an appropriate Nautch accompaniment on a drum with liis fingers and four pretty girls advance from tho half circle and, favoring me with a quartet of killing smiles and a quartet of coquettish glances from their bright, dark eyes, they com mence to dance. An idea seems to pre vail in Occidental minds that the Indian Nautch dance is a very naughty thing, but nothing is further from the truth. Of course, it can bo.iuade naughty, and, no doubt, of ten is, but then so can many another form of innocent amusement. Tlie proiier Nautch dance is a decorous and artistic performance when properly danced; the graceful motions and elegant proportions of the human form, as re vealed by lithe and graceful dancers, aru to be viewed with au eye purely artistic and critical as a Venus or oilier produc tion of the sculptor's studio. Only the Britit.h matron would consider a Nautch dance in any degree indecorous. The foiir dancers take the hem of their rexl garment between the thumb and finger of tlie right hand, spreading its ample folds into the figure of an open fan by bringing the outstretched arm almost on a level to the shoulder. A mantle of transparent muslin, fringed with silver spangles, is worn about the head and shoulders in the same indescribably grace ful maimer as the mantilla of the Span ish senorita. Raising a portion of this aloft in the left hand and keeping the fan intact with the right, the dancers twirl around and change position with each other, their supple figures meanwhile as suming a variety of graceful motions and poKtures from tim to time. Now they imitate the spiral movements of a serpent climbing around and upward ou an ira aginary pole; again they assume a charm ing posture, their dusky countenances half hidden in seeming coquetry behind the mu-sliu mantle, the larjro red fan waved gentlv to and fro, the feet tin mov ing, bnt the undulating motions of the body and the tremor of the limbs sufficing to jinglo the tiny ankle bells.

The other night, at th concert of the Yale Glee club, in New Haven, after tlie) first number ou the programme, the f rc-sh-man class gave the audience to under stand that it was in existence. First there came a shower of white and bhio cards from tlie galleries bearing the chits numerals ""91. Then a curtain carna down from the flies, and it lie n blue silk banner on which was ""CI." Then a white dove flew across from the gallery and perched above tlie stage, and it bore fastened to its neck a card on hi h was '91." Another dove followed, and then several more, ail labelled -"01."' Then the sophomores got in their work. They tore down tlie banner, caught the doves and subdued the freshmen, and the con cert proceeded. There was a period cf forty minutes between the first and second numbers on tlie programme. v- oris Sun. Tb Mercbundlxr-Mark Ac.
