Mes-rs. Hub'wl, Price & Co., in their daily cotton circular to day, say : "The advance in Liverpool to-day was 4-64. Spot sales 10,000 bales. In our market, early prices were about five points over last evening, but Liverpool's strength slightly smaller receipts, and the covering of shorts led to an extreme advance of about 13 points by 1 o'clock from which there was subsequently a slight reaction. The bears have not been as aggressive as they were. The buying of the near futures, especially May to which we have frequently alluded, continues. Re ceipts at the ports to-day are estima ted at 13,000 against 10,000 last year. Receipts at New Orleans are estimated at 5,000 bales. The department of agriculture at Wash ington, in its last report pays that generally throughout the Southern States, during the pat year, there has been a decrease in both the number and value of the horse and mule population. Tin? is signifi cant s it reflects no- only the finan cial prostration ami distress, which exists in this section named, but indicates also an impaired ability to properly cultivate and further the agricultural interest. During the afternoon the market became easier, and there was a slight re action, final prices being from 1) t 11 points higher. The relative strength of the near positions is con strued by the bulls as a favorable feature. At Memphis, Tenn., and as far south as Meridian, Miss., a terrific snow storm is prevailing. The snow fall at Memphis is said to be 18 inches." Receipts at the ports are 13,000 bales against 10,000 last week and 5,000 last year. The spot market is quiet at 1-16 advance in quotations, Middling uplands 6 13-16. Sales 155 bales!
