—Tho New York Post of Saturday evon
big, commenting on the eventful week in
gold premiums, says:
"Commercial considerations which would
of themselves have caussd a gradual and
steady advance in the gold premium have
been pressed into the service of the specu
lators, and we have seen instead rapid and
violent fluctuations, apparently dictated by
the momentary interests of heavy opera
tors. The prevailing idea seems to be that
in view of the unfavorable conaition of our
foreign trade balance, a higher premium
will be maintained before October than has
been reached during the past week."

There Is but little that Is really now or
important to be said about the general
markets, and general business • continues
dull. Onoe It has been fully ascertained in
regardto the resnits of the harvest, and the
crops begin to move, business will im
prove, andAho indications now are very
favorable for a good fail trade. We look
for a good demand for all kinds of Pitts
burgh manufactures this fall, and nothing
contribiites so much to, the strength of
Pittsburgh as when her manufacturing in
terests are in good condition.
GROCERIES—The grocery' market has
been fairly active during the. past week,
there having been fair volume of business
in the aggregate, while so far as prices are
concerned, there are no changes worthy of
special notice. Raw Sugars are in good de
mand and firm, while Refined is a little.
weak and a shade lower. Coffee is firmer
but unchanged, and this is trite of Rice,

OFFICE. OF THE PITTSBURGH GAZETTE, t
WEDNESDAY, August 12, IS6B.
The local money market is quiet and de
void of any new or important characteristics
worthy of special notice. As general busi
ness is dull the demand for money is 'by no
means urgent, and all good borrowers ex
perience no difficulty in getting accommo
dations at 8 to 9 per cent. in bank, and
some, who keep up big balances, get it for
less. On the street the figures range all the
way from 10 to 15 per cent., according to
—The New Stock quotations to-day
as received byMr. Ph. R. Mertz, were as
follows: Gold 146%; 1881's, 115%; 5-20's,
1852, 114%; do 1864, 110%; do 1865, 112 y,; do
new, 109; do 1867, -109 w; 10-40's, 109%;
Cleveland ,St Pittsburgh 87;; Fort Wayne,
108%; Western Union Telegraph 33%;
Adams Express, 52; Erie, 57%.
—The decline in Gold which began on
Friday in New York, and has continued;
with some halts since, is attributed mainly
to the statement of the public debt, Which
showed a much larger balance of coin in
the Treasury than was I expected, The
New York T1171C3 of the Bth says:
"The speculators for the rise in gold
have evidently underrated the amount re•
maining in the Treasury. The public debt
statement this afternoon shows that eighty-
three million of dollars were on hand at the
close of August."
The balance of coin however, is not near
so large as was at first supposed; - from the
883,409,917 are to be deducted $ 22 ,414,000 of
go certificates, leaving the balance in the
ownership of the government on August
Ist 860,995,217. This sum included the 87,-
200,000 for Alaska, of which $2,000,000 . has
been drawn out.

BUTTER—Under the influence of in
creased receipts the market is a little dull,
and prices are barely maintained, ranging
from 30 to 33 for good to prime.
EGGS—Continue exceedinglg dull, with
a supply largely in excess of the demand,
and we now quote at 16 to 18.
CHEESE—Is quiet and unchanged at 14
to 15 for Western Reserve and Hamburg 16
to 17 for Factory; and 11.1 to 20 for Sweitzer.
HAY—Is selling from country wagons at
$2O to $2B, for common to prime new crop.
GRAIN—While the dealers are 'getting
in but little Wheat the mills seem to be
receiving plenty. and we continue to quote,
at $2,12 to 12,15 for Red and 5'2,20 to 12,2.5
for White. The reason why dealers . do not
bring in more lies in the fact that there is
no margin, as the mills can bring it here
as cheap as the dealers.. The stock of old
Oats is almost completely exhausted, while
the new crop has hardly as Vet been
thrown upon the market; we can report
sales of old at 82 and new at 69 to 70: Sale
of 1 car prime shelled Corn at $1,12 and
this may be regarded as the ruling price:
for prime It is difficult to quote
either Rye or Barley, as thus far we have
heard of no sales whatee or of the latter, and
but very few of the former.
' GREEN APPLES—Are Coining in more
freely, and the market is a little weak
with a drooping tendency; sales at 13,50 to
$5,50 per bbl, as to quality.
POTATOES—Continue exceedingly dull,
beingotlered at 0013,25 per bbl., without
finding very many buyers.
LARD OIL—Is firm but unchanged at
$1,15 for No. 2 and $1,45 for No.' 1. .
PROVISIONS—Bacon is firm but rm-;
changed at 13N to 14 for Shoulders; 1634 ta,
18y4 for Ribbed and Clear Sides; and 22;4'
to 22v, for Sugar Cured Hams. Lard 19M
Dried Beef; 21%. Mess Pork 00.
FLOUR—There is no improvement to
note in the demand, and while the market
is rather dull, prices are without quotable
change; we quote at $10,50 to 111,for Spring
Wheat; $10,75 to $L1,50 for Winter Wheat,
and 0,25 to $9,50 foe fancy brands. 1
PITTSBURGH PETROLEUM MARKET.

WEDNESDAY, AUgUSt 12; 1868.
CRUDE, , • •
The crude market was a little panicky
to-day, and in the afternoon concessions
had to be made in order to effect Bales.
Spot, which was held at 14c yesterday, was
offered to-day at 13%c with 1334 c bid; sales
of 1,000 bbls for September, seller's option,
at 14; and 1,000 tbbls, each for October and
November, at 1334 c. There were variotus
causes assigned for the Hurry to-day; one
that it was a bear movement, while another
had it that it was the increased production
—it is alleged that there has .been an in
crease of seven hundred barrels within the
past week or ten days, and that the yield
in the Venaugo region is now fully twelve
thousand barrels per day. Be this as it
may, there is no disputing the fact that the
market was decidedly offish to-day,, and
that compared with yesterday, prices ruled
REFINED—There was also considerable
of a panic in refined oil to-day, under the
influence of adverse reports from the East,
and particularly was this the ease in re
gard to early deliveries. We can report 500
bbls spot at 3334 c; 1,000 do at 33%c, and
1,000 do for the last half of September at
2114 e. Late in the day it was reported that
sales were Made in New York for August
at 32 to 32c, but some parties received
these reports with considerable allowance,
though we understood that telegrams *ore
received which reported sales or offers to
sell at these figures.
LATER—Since the above wag written, we
are reported the following bulk Oil sales
5,000 barrels delivered at Saw Mill Run.
immediately, at Isc. .Sales of 2,000 barrels
on the Spot at 133 c; 060 barrels do. at 1330
