OFFICE OF THE PITTSBURGEGAZETTE,
SATURDAY, August 15, 1868. S
Gold remained Steady to-day at 146 M to
146%, with a moderate business. Most of
the importers andspeculaters short in gold
covered themselves, no doubt warned by
the fate of the two large speculators who
had failed the day previous. The line of
shorts - being thus considerably reduced,.
gold is quite plenty, and loans at three per
cent, per annum. Unless a strong effort is
made within the next few days to rally the
market, lower rates may be established be
fore a material advance can take place.
Government securities are very dull and
'weak, and there seems to be no demand for
investment but rather a strong pressure
to sell by banks and private speculators:
In the stock market the heavy fall of Erie
could not fail to disturb the rest of the list.
There 'are very few buyers, and if the
cliques do not come in as such on Monday,
a panic can scarcely be avoided. '
Men of limited means have recently been
tempted to buy Erie, Michigan. Southern
and Ohio and Mississippi certificates, en
couraged by the success they met in the
North Western shares and by the offices of
middle men to cary their stocks at small ,
margins and force extra commission. If
habitues of Broad street can not . sav'ethem-.
selves on a declining market it would be
much more difficult to •make money (by
parties who have bought for a rise,) when
500 miles away from the markt. A timely
warning was given to the small ring formed
here some time ago on Cleveland and Pitts
burghstock and those few who saved therti
selVes endorsed the correeness of the reviews
expressed in these columns. The same
warning would have been given to the
Erie speculators gratuftiously, if a com
munication could have reached in time.
There are but few brokers here who are
thoroughly informed and who suffi
cient firmness of character to reject all
business of a speculative nature not found
ed on fundamental principles: Scarcely
more than one per cent out of the multitude
• of speculators are finely successful in their
operabons and even then they are unfit for
regular business, the eagerness 'foi large.
profits causing them overlook the small
gains derived from,legitimate business. -

OFFICE OI? THE PITTSBURGH GAZETTE,
SATURDAY; August 15, 'lB6B.
The general marketa during the past
week have been moderately activevrith e
slight increase in the volume of tautness,
though there is still plenty of rootu icy im
provement. Some few articles fa conse
quence of a temporary scarcity, have ap
preciated slightly, white others, for an ex
actly opposite cause, have depreciated; but
as a_ general thing, there have been no
very, important changes, one way or the
oilier. The demand for all of the leading
articles continues to be restricted to sup
plying the immediate wants. of the local
trade, and there is a general absence of
anything like a speculative feeling, which
is:owing to the doubt. and uncertainty in
regard to the future. Speculators, as a
general thing, have been unfortunate du-
ring the past year or two, and there has
been so many failures, some of them very
very bad ones, that. those who have, the
means and disposition are afraid to "pitch
in" for fear they might meet with a similar
BUTTER—Is coming in quite freely but
as yet prices are maintained, good to primp
bringing 30c to 33c.
EGGS—Continue very dull, with a sup
plylargely in excess of the 'demand; sales
of common at 150 to 10c, and fresh packed
at 17c to 18c.
CHEESE—Is steady but uncbanged at
14c to 15c for Western Reserve and Harn.-
burg; 16c to 17c for Factory; and 20c for
HAY—Is being sold from country
wagons at NO to $2.8 per ton, as to quality.
GREEN - APPLES—Are in good supply
and drooping; we now quOte good to prime
at t 4 to 15.
POTATOES—Quiet and unchanged at $3
to pow per bbl.
SALT—Is quiet and unchanged at $1,75
to $l,BO to the trade, and $2 in a retail way.
GRAIN—The receips of Wheat continue
liberal, though the great proportion of the
arrivals are consigned to the mills; deal
ers are not doing much as the margin, if
sold here, is light, and It wont beat ship
ment to any.of the Eastern markets. The
Western markets are dull and weak, with
a declining tendency, and the Eastern mar
kets are quiet and unchanged. We con
tinue to quote prime Red at $2,10 to $2,15,
and White at. 52,18 to $2,20. Prime Yellow
Corn may be quoted at $1,12 and mixed
from 3o to 5e less. New Oats cannot be
quoted above 65e, while old - remain un
changed. :New Rye is in demand at $1,30
to $1,35, to arrive; no old in market. No
fixed price for Barley as yet.
LARD OIL-.ls firm but unchanged at
1,15 for No. 2, and $1,45 for No. 1.
PROVISIONS—The panic caused by the
cattle plague has considerably 'increased
the demand for the hog product,and prices
are firm at .the recent advance. We con-,
tinue to quote' at 14 for Shoulders; 1634 to
MN for Ribbed, and 1834 to 183; for Clear
Sides, and 22 to 22 y, for Sugar Cured Hams.
Lard 19% and Mess Pork $3O to $30,50.
FLOUll—There is no improvement to
note in the demand, and while the market
Is quiet and dull, prices are without essen
tial change. Buyers, both dealers and con
sumers, take hold very sparingly in, antici
pation of a still further deoline, - and,_as a
consequence, the volume of business in the
aggregate is light. The mills quote as fol
lows: Double Extra, $ll In bbls,and 110,70
in sacks; Extra Family, $10,50 in bbls, and
$10,20 in sacks. • Rye Flour, $9.25 to $9,50.

• unsettled and panicky throughout the en
tire week, and the volume of business has
been comparatively' light. To-day there
was not a single sale reported, and we do
not believe that there was a single one ef
fected; there were some few buyers and
sellers,and although at times they got very
close tegother, yet about the time a trans
action waa,being closed, something would
are offers to sell spot
oil at 13b, with 12X bid; later in the day
there were offers to buy at 13a, but no sel
lers. September, it was thought, could
have heen bought at 1334 c, though so far as
we could learn, there were no plump offers
to sell. Indeed, as already noted, I the trade
has been in a turbulent and unsettled con
'dition throughout the week; in nearly
every case when an offer was made to sell
no matter how low the figure,buyers would
ask for a still further reduction; subse
quently., finding that it was im'po.ssible to
buy below that figure, the bayer would
conclude to accept; then the seller would
back water, andstate that his offer was Off.
In this way, there was 'a large amount of
dickering, and at the same_time but very
little done. From Oil' City, there were of
fers to sell at 55, but buyers in order to
avoid risk, detention, etc.; etc., prefer buy
ing delivered here. . During the week,
sales were made all the way from 55,50'
down to 55,10, with, as we have already
stated, offers to sell to-day at the even 55.
REPINED—The market was somewhat
firmer to-day, and with considerable in
nuiry and but few sellers, prlces, especially
for the last half of August, ruled a shade
higher. We can report 500 bbls spot, at
32a; 500 last half of August, at 33c; 500 Sep
tember, at 3334 c; and 1000 each for Sentent-
ber and October, at 334 c. At the close,
there were additional offers for the last
half of August at 333tc and no sellers, and
nearly all of the oil ab ove noted was taken
on Pittsburgh account. The shipments
east continue large,averaging the last week
between three- and four thousand barrels
per day, and it is said that stocks are aiicci
ululating both in New York and Philadel
phia, and this, we presume, has something
to do with the stagnation which has pre
vailed for some time pasts It is thonzht
by some, however, that the present dull
spell wi ll be of very long dnration, and
that it will be followed by a stronger mar
ket and better prices. d
