OFFICE OF PITTSBEF.OE GAZETTE,
WEDNESDAY, February 24, 1869. S
The rapid changes in the gold market
to-day from 132.9,; to 133, and back to
132% are good indications that bottom
_has about been touched. The purchases
are increasing in magnitude by the bu
siness community as well as by specula
tors who had sold at 136(741303,4. The low
rates for gold at, present are also keep
ing down the market for bonds, and for
eign investors will pause for a while be
fore purchasing, when it is almostcer
tain that within a short time a reaction
must take place. Bonds were dull ''and
lower to-day, especially new 1865 s and
10 40s, whilst 1867 s are about ;sg pet) cent.
higher. A short interest in these bonds
has made them so scarce that -a close
corner might be made at any moment
if desirable. The public at large are
sellers at present, and few bonds are
bought at present quotations. The mar:
ket is in about the sam condition as be
fore the close of July fast, when every
body predicted a rise of the new 5-20 s to
115, and on the very day they were ex
pected to rise considerably, a sudden
panic seized the large operators and they
threw their load on the market, which
pre6ipitated the whole bond quotations
about two per cent., and which a three
per cent. call loan market could not re
deem. Everybody had been speculat
ing on the rise about to take place after
General Grant's' accession to the Presi
dency, so that it would be a great wonder
if the price should pot suddenly collapse
for over-speculation and other causes
connected with the price of gold and our
business relations with Europe.
The stock market is dull, lower and
weak, with a general decline for the en
tire list. Port Wayne, which bad touched
12435, declined to 1231,;; Ohio and Mis
sissippi declined % per cent.; Cleveland
%; New York Central 1 per cent.; whilst
the Michigan Central advanced to 96%,
with a strong market.
The general opinion is that stocks
are far above 'the Inaiket, and any day_
may - bring a heavy decline from the
present inflated prices. The value of
stocks is affected in the , same proportion
as gold bonds are from a decline in gold.
Local Stocks are dull with the exception
of a few favorite bonds. Allegheny Val
ley bonds are firmer, after the stock
holders' meeting, and the report of the
condition of the road, holders who ask
now two per cent. advance, probably
will sell for three per cent. less when
they find buyers are scarce at the ad
Since the sudden rise and decline in
governments, more inquiry is made foi

Governments opened steady, though at .
a decline on yesterday's highest prices,
the immediate cause of the decline being
a report, that the Senate Finance Com-
mittee will probably not report

however, the passage. of Schenck's-bill _

In Railway stocks there was a large
business doing during the morning, and
the market was strong and buoyant un
after the regular board, when there
was a reaction of ?;@1 per cent. from the
extreme advance. The particular fea
tures were Fort Wayne, which rose to
125, and Michigan Southern, which
under the amicable set
tlement of the differences between the
iormer and Erie corporation and the
heavy purchases of Michigan Southern
by the Vanderbilt interest. No change is
however expected in its present direction.
An announcement is made that the
Directors of the Cleveland it Pittsburgh
road have come to amicable relations
with the Erie road, and that Mr. McCul
lough will continue as President while
Jay Gould will be Treasurer. Miscella
neous shares are steady. Pacific Mall
otherwise strong and iidvancing. Ex
press shares are lower in consequence of .
renewed litigation between themselves, •
and report says that the Erie and
Central Railway threaten to ex
them from their.. road. .The
United States fell fully 10 per cent. and •
the others heavily, but not so much. In
the afternoon the railway market was
stronger, with a gener recoverfrom
the lowest point. New al
Wabash and Fort Wayne were the
strongest shares and Toledo-the weakest,
selling down to 105; from which it re
acted before the close. The market closed
firm. Express stocks are lower; miscel
