trade to-day, and Western produce commis-
sion merchants report matters at a standstill.
In the hide market an easier tone prevailed
to-day, and quotations have again been re
vised. Wool is quiet and unchanged.
Cotton \ras in good demand to-day, and, de-
spite the big receipts of the preceding two
weeks, advances are chronicled in all direc-
tions. In tjiis market quotations of the me-
dium and low grades were put up and the
high grades were advanced ^c. The visible

supply to be short 635,722 bales. The de-
crease in the deficit since last week is, there
fore, 146,523 bales, or, in other words, there
hzs been an increase of cotton in sight to that
extent. Appended are the actual figures :
