A slight set-back which may menu
much or nothing, according to the final
outcome nf tlie crops, Is not unexpec ted
at ll:.ls season. If the government crop
reports were correct, the situation
would not be encouraging, lint not
much contlth'iiee is placed In the re
duced estni.iale of corn: none at ail In
the estimate of wheat, and even the
most enthusiastic bulls do not think
11 worth while to nuote the government
report as to cotton. The fact Is that
we are beginning to market not far
from 2.llou,niM,ooo bushels of corn,
though only about iiOO.UOil.OOit bushels
w.ill be moved from the counties, wheru
It Is grown; about 4."iO,UiJh,0"i) bushels
of win at of which tlie farmers are
unwisely holding back a large propor
tion; and ubuut ",i!0n.Oilu bales of cot
ton, If the bitter indications are not
eriotieous, as .they very easily may be,
to udd to the stock carried over.
The wheat crop Is evidently larger
than the depart men t has estimated,
though nobody knows how much larg
er, and Is coming forward with more
encouraging rapidity, no less than H,

western ports against fi.t -Id, ;'.") bushels
for the same week last year, from a

sharply, about 2 ceiils per bushel, with
little Indication of recovery. The price
of corn bus also yielded with a strong
prospi ot of the laigert crop ever
grown, and at lis cents at New York a
lar.ge proportion of the crop will be of
Httle profit to farmers.
It we are to have a large crop of gmln
nnd a small crop of cotton It is natural
to Infer that manufacturers may find
large transactions at the west, but not
at the south. There is. In fact, n very

west-bound shipments are uusuully
large, although the cist-bound ship

The work of dismantling the Val

Tlie men in Valkyrie's crew seem
grtdtly disappointed at the fizzle.
None of thorn would talk, however. Mr.
Jtatsey, who declined to talk this morn
ing was more communicative after din
ner. "I'm very sorry," he said, "at tho
unfortunate outcome. The excursion
steamers are tho cause of it all. The
management did not take the proper
means to have a ch-ar course. The
races should be at some place where
the excursion boats cannot, or will
not (jo, and the dates on which the
races will be sailed should be kept sec

had some, but 1 go back with a great
deal of regret."
Herarding the time Valkyrie would
probably leave on her ocean voyage,
he said he did not believe she would

deal to be done.
