Monday, August 21, 1870. f
liusintss continues to improve and
<(uite a number of buyers were on the
streets to (Ihj-. Some of them had
never before condescended to make
Galveston a base of supplies, and among
the last mentioned was one purchaser
of groceries who took about a thousand
packages of case goods alone. The
balance of his bill was in proportion.
Dealers generally look for a heavy fall
trade. The low freights from New
York to this point which, in conse-
quence of the strong nnd relentless op-
position between the Mallory and Mor-
gan lines, have been reduced to
merely nominal figures, have this
season given Galveston a great
advantage over either New Orleans
or St. Louis in enabling the merchants
of this city to lay in stocks of all
classes of Northern and Eastern manu-
factures at lower figures than any of
the competing points mentioned. The
same cause has also dropped many a
dollar into the pockets of producers
who have after all been the greatest
beneflciaries of the saving in freights by
steam to New York or to foreign ports
via New York.
In the provision market further weak-
ness is perceptible, and bacon is marked
down another ic; the decline extends
only to sides and shoulders. Break-
fast bacon is steady.
The cotton market was quiet to day.
Good middling is 4c. lower according
to the revised Exchange quotations.
Arrivals were a shade better at Liver-
pool, but futures closed barely steady
in New York at 1 32c. decline com-
pared with Saturday evening's figurep.
STANDARD COTTOX SAMPLES.
The following is from the New York
Jour mil of Commerce of the 14th inst'
The Standard Cotton Sample* for the
Cumin;/ Year.—The Board of Cotton
Experts appointed from the several
Cotton Exchanges represented in the
National Cotton Exchange to prepare
new samples of cotton according to the
American standard of classification for
use (lnring the next cotton year, which
begins September 1, have been in ses-
sion for several days past at the Cotton
Exchange, and completed their labor
Saturday. Nine samples of each grade
were prepared, with the exception of
the grade " Fair," there being no cotton
of that grade One set of the types se-
lected is to be sent to each of the ex-
changes in a box, with a label duly
signed bv the chairman of the Board,
Mr. II. A. Frederic, of New Orleans.
Before adjourning Saturday the follow-
ing resolutions were passed:
Resolved, That the Committee on Quo-
tations and Classifications of |lhe New
York Cotton Exchange be requested
to furnish types of Fair based upon the
type of Fair of 1874, as soon as the cot-
ton can be obtained.
lie*>lce<l, That the thanks of this
board be and they are hereby tendered
to the gentlemen of the New York Cot-
ton Exchange, also to Messrs. Thomas
Fenner and Charles Easton, of New
York, for courtesies and assistance ex-
tended to this board.
The Galveston Exchange received ta-
day a complete set of the samples above
described, and will shortly be prepared
to supply types in duplicate.
The Liverpool spot market closed
quiet and unchanged, with 10,000 bales
sales for the day, of which 2000 were
for export and speculation and 0700
American. The imports for the day
were 2200 bales, including 1000 Ameri-
can. The New York spot market ruled
quiet and closed easier, with sales of
1217 bales, principally to spinners. The
receipts at the outports since Saturday
were 1500 bales, against 2174 for the
same time last week, and f>74 for the
corresponding period last year. The re-
ceipts at this port were 182 bales, prin-
cipally new cotton, and as there have
been no shipments since Friday, the
stock is slowly increasing. Sales to the
extent of 94 bales occurred to-day. The
Exchange reduced Good Middling ^c.,
but the other grades are unaltered and
the market is reported " quiet."
