The American people are (oo prone
to jump at conclusions, nntl to proceed
instantly to net upon tlu-m, widioui
careful verification ot' their correct- !
ncss. Once convinced that tln-y arc
right, individually and collectively, i
they no longer stop to wci jh opinions, ,
or co.isider reasonable causes! of !
doubt. 1
The intell igenee of the actual coin- I
m'neement of hostilities in Italy af
fords the latest illustrat ion of litis na
tional propensity. No sooner had the
news flashed over the electric wire I
that the Austrian had crossed the ;
Ticinoand that the French army was !
pouring into Genoa and pushing up
the ascent of the Alps, that it brisk j
speculative demand sprung up in our I
markets for breads! nil's, more partic- :
ularly lor (hair, ihis article having'
risen in price, in three days, ono dol
lar per barrel.
The conclusioii upon which this
movement was based, and to which !
the American mind arrived almost by
instinct, was without doubt, one well
founded, viz: That a war in Europe
must ultimately produce a European j
demand for provisions. But opera- :
tors, in their eagerness to grasp the
profits which glittered tempi itigly in
the distance, did not stop to examine
the actual condition of the markets,
and to calculate how much time
might elapse before the new demand
would be felt on this side, of the At
lantic. Had this been done, the im.
pulsiveness of action might have
been checked by the conviction, that
upon the home rather than tin: for
eign market speculators in breadstulfs
would be compelled to rely for some
time for profits.
Just previous to the news I hat
caused the sudden advance to which
allusion has been made, the prices of
flour here were such that importations
could be made with profit from Eu
rope to New York and Baltimore on !
contract, up to the 1st of July, at low
er rates than those articles then com
manded in that market.
It has been estimated that when'
and flour must advance li.'ly per cent
in Liverpool before an export demand
would bo created from America to I
that port, the calculation being based j
upon the ruling rates since. I
During the present year our wheat, i
flour and corn meal have been almost I
Ijterally shut out of the markets of,
England. Not one eighth of the
amount exported in either of the last '
three years, has been shipped during I
the corresponding months of Ho!), j
The cxpoitsof llour have been but !
65,758, against ?81,3H barrels in
18G8, and 015,800 bushels of w heat,
against 3,t08,!)70 for that year. It
4oannot but appear from these facis,
fhat if (ho advance in the price of this
staple was due to an expectation of
an immediate foreign demand, it was
lie result of a hopeful impulse rather
fhan of reflection.
The declaration of war, it is true,
affecte l the market of Hour in Eng
land much as it influenced it in this
country.w But that country is nearer
the seat of war, and mqst sooner be
influenced by its waste and the with
drawal of husbandmen from thmr oi?. I
cupation. England, France, Austria.
Holland, Sardinia and Prussia are
compelled in time of peace to import
grain from abroad for their domestic
supply, and the complication of the
pminous struggle might speedily inter
rupt communication with Russia, from
whence a considerable amount in de
rived by each of these nations.
" The markets of the CniteJ States
for breads! ufiii can only be expected
fo feci legitimately the natural influ
ence of the present disturbed condi
tion of the continent, when the sup
ply notv in European granaries has
been exhausted without an income
from the now crops equal to the de
mand. Such consequence are doubt
less sure to follow any considerable
or proiraeted war. It must ultimate
ly raise prices t.bove their present
standard; but considerable lime may
bo expected to elapse before such a
result is witnessed. Our own pro.
ductioti has lately not largely excee
ded t ho demand ol home consump
tion. The home market for breads! nil's
before breaking out of hostilities, or
the serious apprehensions of such n
result, indicated no great surplus of
production that would hear transpor
tation far from the harvest field. In
deed , for two successive years I In
crops of the West were bad. This
failure has birn one of the causes of
tho financial embarrassment of the
great panic still weighing down its i
energies and darkening its prospects,
It has not recovered from that shock,
nor will it until the golden grain shall
yield an hundred fold what has been
lately garnered.
There may be reason, therefore, in
the condition of affairs at home for an
advance in the price of Hour; yet the
present prospect of the incoming har
vest, is so favorable to extraordinarv 1
abundance that it would, seem lo place
the late improvement in prices entire
ly upon tht! expected conflict of the
nations of Europe.
While we watch with intelligence
and interest tho progress of affairs I
abroad it. would be well to rxcrcisc
caution in not anticipating events.
If the blaze of battle burns long in j
the O il Woi Id, .such a convulsion will
take place as bus been seldom v. it- ;
nessed by our race, and America will '

disasters of the Old World must pour '
