NEWS OFFICE. I
Thursday Evening, Dcc. 21, 1876. (
It i«4 very gratifying to bo able to report that
rrade continues satisfactory in nearly all de-
part inenta, especially as the uniform tenor of
advices from all other business centers
throughout the country Is that business is
bad, and that the fall and winter trade has
been, to say the least, very disappointing.
Values to-day show jome changes of inter
est. In sugars quotations have boon revised.
The revision i* based upon freo pales of Lou-
isiana, and shows a decline in all grades.
Flour Is firmer, and figures for medium grades
are marked up 25?. per barrel.
M ssr.4. Miller. Dolhonde & Co., of New Or
leans, in th« ir last circular, repoit that mar-
ket as gradually responding to the advanced
views of the West in prices of flours, and add
that the stock in New Orleans is mostly com-
posed of high grades and only of a moderate
a uount, which will be taken soon at higher
prices, especially if the Western rivers con-
tinue closed by ice and the rrcefpts by ra'j
u e small. Medium and low grades of flour
are very scarce and wanted. »he position of
all the markets in the United States is a
strong one, and it is believed that prices will
be higher as the season advances, and that
exporters will have to pay much higher prices
foi their supplies before the next harvest.
The »ume flrr.i reports that many of the rice
planters along the river above New Orleans
are planting sugar caue for their next year's
crop, as rice has paid them nothing this year;
on the contrary, losses. Since the above fact
was announced prices have shown some im-
provement, which there was room for, as the
staple hail declined to 2V*(&5c. Per pound,
which figures can not net producers a profit.
In thn markt ts for the leading staples, cot-
ton and hides, there has been a free move-
ment. Cotton is J4c higher on all grades—a
gratifying appreciation of the value of the
stock on hand and on shipboard of about a
hundred and fifty thousnnd*dollars on a single
THE LARGE STOCK <OF COTTON.
The largest stock of cotton on hand in Gal-
vest »n at any one time prior to this season
was mi the <Uh of February, 1874, when it foot-
ed up 180,505 bales. The largest stock last
season was on January 1st, when it amounted
to $90,790 bales The largest total this year
was re ched on Thursday last, when it footed
up 121,499 bales. Since that date it has in
creased steadily, and to-day is 122,640 bales.
A figure unprecedented in the history of the
Liverpool is l-16d. higher for both spot
and arrivals, and New York is l-16c. higher
for sj of, and futures are 3-16c. higher.
New Orleans is % higher, and this market, as
before stated, is ^jc, higher on all grades.
Th« receipts at all ports to-day show a
heavy falling cfT, and the very sensitive con-
dition of all mai kets on this point is mani-
fested in the immediate advances noted
Hides command full prices, although the
demand is not so general as it has been. The
New York Uulletin, of the 18tli, says:
The market for hides is characterized l»y a
continued active movement and firm prices
on all varieties. The stock in first hands is
yet but 16,30J ide*, so that there i« not any-
thing in th • way of supply favorable to lower
prices at the moment. The sales for the week
include 10 450 dry Texas. 22<&24 R»s, at 21c,
currency, cash, selected.
THE FATAL EFFECTS OF THE POLITI-
CAL UNCERTAINTY UPON TRADE.
The New York Chronicle fears the effect of
a protracted postponement of the presiden-
tial question, but believes tkat a perfectly
I>eaceful solutiou of the difficulty, will be ef-
fected, and says:
T here is no reason for solicitude on this
point Politicians may n excited moments
utter inconsiderate words and make extrava-
gant claims; but these questions are all to be
decided, not by politicians, but by the con-
servative portion of our p ople We greatly
wish, however, a decision might be hastened
for there is a feature of it which
should in ike us all solicitous for a
q ick adjustment. Our Congressmen scarcely
Hj> ireciate the intensify of feeling with which
the mercantile classes are compelled to con-
sider the long continuance of tne present un
certainty. The susperiHe has necessarily
deadened trade; and coining, as this depres-
sion does, after a tension since the panic sel-
d >m. if ever i i our history, equaled, it is
producing- great distress arid threatens even
greater. F«» some time we have been receiving
comtxiunic tlions from manufacturers and
their agents, urging the ». cessity for an im-
mediate settlement, while from all par's of
the country there are evidences of great dis-
appointment, and discouragement. The fall
and winter trade h *s already been distroyed;
and if tliin contest h allowed to c ntinue
through January, and to grow in bitterness
i»s during the past month, the spring trade
must also be considere I dead—and what next ?
The Liverpool spot market opened harden-
ing. and at the close prices were advanced
l-16d. The day's sales footed up 25,0* 0 bales,
of which 13,500 were American and 2000 for
export and speculation. The imports were
11,200 bales, of which 10.800 were from A mer-
le i. Arrivals opened 1-lGd. higher and closed
The New York spot market closed steady at
l-16c. advance, with sales of 1311 bales. Fu-
tures closed strong, with sales of 34.600 bales.
The New Orleans market closed active at
'•fic advance, with sales of 10,500 bales.
The receipts at the outports for the day
were 22.004 bales, against 83,253 for last
Thursday, and 33.385 for the corresponding
day last year. The stock at all United States
ports, as made up this evening, is 941,159.
agAinst 759,M0 for the same day last year.
In this market sales of 2762 bales were re-
ported, and the Exchange marked up prices
V41*. on all gra tes, and bulletined the market
as closing •'firm." Factors were free sellers
at this advance.
