Weekly Review of the General Mar-
News Office, December 0.—Business has de-
cidedly improved since the last review, and at
present may be said to be fairly active. Prices
have been steady during the week, with but few
changes to note. Coffee is firm at last week's
quotations. Canned beans and tomatoes are
quoted about 5c. per dozen lower. Flour is firm,
with an upward tendency, but quotations remain
unchanged. Hog products are steadv and un-
changed, with the exception of lard, wnich is
lower than last Tuesday. Cornmeal is firm and
5c. higher for western, but 15c. lower for city kiln-
dried, and also 15c. lower for city hominy and
grits. Pecans are scarce, and prices have advanced
during the week. Apples are firmer, ranging from
$5 to $6 per barrel. Sugar declined slightly early
in the week, but' quotations are advanced %c. to-
day, with large receipts during the week, and an
active demand. Chickens are dull and have de-
clined 50c. per dozen since last Tuesday, while tur-
keys are in fair demand and higher. Potatoes are
firmer and higher, with light s'.ock* and prospects
of a further advance in the near future. Cabbage
is scarce, and selling at $9<&10 per crate.
Cotton on the spot was lower to-day in most of
the markets. Galveston reduced quotations V$c
and closed easy. Liverpool declined l-16d. New
Orleans, Mobile and Boston reduced quotations ^c,
and Charleston, Norfolk and New York were l-16c
lower. Futures closed steady at Liverpool, but

York futures closed steady, but7(&10 points lower.
The receipts at the ports to-day were 4405 below

His Railroad from Houston to tlie
Atlantic—The Rates 011 Grain from
San Francisco to New Orleans.
Mr. C. P. Huntington, General Echols and
General Wickhafb, of the Chesapeake and
Ohio Railroad, were registered at the Galfc
House last night. These gentlemen have come
to Louisville to see what arrangements can be
made to enter the city with their road. Mr.
Huntington was asked last night if he could
not stato to the public something of his plans
concerning Louisville, the Lexington Road and
the Cecilia branch, etc.
" I have come," said he, t£ to see w bat facili-
ties for doing business I can obtain here. My
original intention was to strike tho Ohio at
Louisville. Just how much business we w^ili
do here will depend on how much it will cost
to do that business. If it costs two or three
cents more to do business here than elsewhere,
we will be forced to do what we can elsewhere.
We will within a few days be running through
cars from Louisville and from Cincinnati to
Newport News, The Means tunnel is linished,
and the last rail will be laid within a short time.
By April 1 we will be running cars from Mem-
phis to Newport News, as the lease of the Cecelia
branch has been agreed on, and we will change
the gauge from here to Memphis within the
next four weeks to four feet eight inches. We
will have free use of the line from here to Lex-
ington. We hope to build a line between L »uit.-
ville and Lexington before very long. With-
in twelve months the transcontinental line from
San Francisco to Newport News will be
" The tendency of rates is continuously to a
lower level; every obstacle that enhances the
cost of transportation is a misfortune, and
every means will be used to avoid it. At Cin-
cinnati we have made arrangements with the
Louisville and Nashville to cross on the bridge
they use, paying our proportion of the rental.
Between New York and San Francisco last year
we carried thousands of tons of grapos at the
rate of four-tenths of a cent a mile; we expect
to carry grain from California to New-
Orleans, and will be glad to get half a cent a
mile. It will be seen from these figures how
n cessary it is that terminal charges should be
reduced to the lowest possible point. I am
told the bridge toll here is somewhere between
$3 and $0 a car, while grain has been carried
from Chicago to New York for $13. Such ter-
minal charges mean bankruptcy. Commerce
can not pay such a tax permanently and flour-
ish; to add to this another ''arbitrary" by
giving exclusive privileges to a belt road on
the wbarf would be the height of
folly. The Chesapeake and Ohio wants to
jet to the wharf either above or below, and
t does not wish to be cut olT from the other
end. I saw Mr. J. G. Barrett in New York,
and asked him what hL» company intended to
do with its franchise. kYou do not,' said I,
•intend to build any road but for these few
squares?' 'No,' said he. 4You do not intend
to spend any money in rolling stock?' 4 No.'
4 Then you only intend to stand there levying
tribute on every carload of freight that passes
through your gates?' 4 Yes,' said he, 4 but we
will treat every one alike.' 4No doubt of that,'
said 1; 4I do not suppose you will allow a single
pound to pass on which this extra tariff has
not been paid.' This is an equality against
which I protest. It is equal privileges, not
equal disabilities, which we ask."
He said also that he would soon begin the
laying of his road into Texas, as he was cer-
tain he ha t the best grant in that country. As
to the profits of railroad building in that
country, he was not sanguine: he would
willingly agree to take 3 pel cent, for the
next ten years on the money invested in
Mexico, looking to the future for their profits.
When asked if he had secured a connection
with St. Louis, he said he had not yet, but he
thought to secure one before very long. His
business for New Orleans from the East would
for the present be done over the Jackson route,
but he expected to build and secure a line from
Memphis, perhaps in the direction of Siireve-
NEW YORK LETTER.
The Stock. ]JI*rket—Government Bonds
ISpecial Correspondence of The News.1
New York, December 2.—Stocks have been
feverish and unsettled all day. There is an un-
scrupulous party determined to put them down if
they can, and the most prefaced falsehoods (like
VanderbilCs serious illness,) are resorted to to ac-
complish their purpose. The Stock Exchange
takes no steps to feret out the promulgators of the
falsehoods, and whils this is the case there is no
telling th« extent to which they will go. The
Trunk Lines opened below la>t night's figuie .
suddenly advanced H*®% P**r cent, then sol<i buck
to the lowest point, and were again higher before
Near 2 o'clock the market was very dull, the
room traders having it about ail to themselves.
Governments continue strong, and several mil-
lions have been taken since yesterday forenoon
by savings banks and other institutions.
It is again stated that a traffic agreement has
been made between the Baltimore a id Ohio and
the Buffalo, Pittsburg and Western roads, and tiic.^
a link is to be built between Newcastle and Chicago
The latest rise in the shares of the Delaware and
Lackawanna Company and the New York. Chicago

alliance between the two.
Sterling ruled quiet but pretty steady; 60s 4.80?4,

The treasury is getting very few bonds, the rea-
son for which, ao far asdarge institutions are con-
cerned, is that they have to pet their boards to-
gether to take action on the sale of their bond-, as
also to decide what shall be bought in their place.

Prophylactic Fluid, which appear* in our issue of

powerful disinfectant, and a positive germ de-
stroyer, and is perfectly safe to use even in the
hands of the most inexperienced. It is highly
recommended by eminent physicians and chem-
ists. and indorsed by hundreds of others who have
used it and know its valuable properties. It costs
but a trifle, and will save much suffering, time and
money. Darby's fluid has long been recognized as
a household artiole for universal family use. Pre-

Hesperian: The Uvalde depot, so the agent
informs us, is jammed ana crammed with
freight for the towns west of us. For the
want of room several box cars have had to be
pressed into service, and still every train
brings in an additional carload Wagons
are constantly passing through town with
families seeking homes in Uvalde county.

doubt, been nearly doubled since the census
was taken in June, 1SS0 The merchants
west of Uvalde are complaining bitterlv over
the detention of goods at this point.... Inhere is
freight enough here to employ several hundred

well for some of our citizens to open a for-
warding house at Uvalde and give notice to
freighters of the demand for their services.

had occasion to travel the sidewalks at night
The crowds permitted to assemble on the
sidewalks of Main street, between Constitution
and Santa Rosa streets have become a nuisance
to peaceable pedestrians whose business calls
them along that popular thoroughfare. Par-
ticularly is this the case with ladies who are
sometimes compelled to walk around a square
rather than encounter crowds of loud-talking
men. No other city of Victoria's importance
permita such nuisances.

when we consider the advantages offered by

under which this busiaess is conducted in other

that the abnormal growth is only the natural
