note in the tone of the general truirkeba
during the week which has closed, and
business generally has been dull and
neglected, the demand for almost every
thing being confined to supplying imnie
,diate wants. The excitement which pre-.
Varied in Sugars and Molasses, last week
liras subsided,a slight reaction having set
in, and prices have declined, and still
manifest a drooping tendency: Provis

. 'Yon, March 6.—Dry - Goods.—
The inclem incle m e ncy of the weather had a
tendency to add to the dullness which
generally haracterizes the last day of
the week; nd hence we have to report a
continued,quietness in this department
of trade. Fine unbleached muslins are
a little depressed and irregular, being
the result of- spasmodic efforts on the
part of a few jobbers to force trade than
any general break in prices, which for
the most part are very low and selling at
a small margin. Massachusetts B B
unbleached muslins reduced to 133,c.,
Pepperell It 14;41 by the piece package;
Laconia E reduced to 1810, and Bto
143/c; United +States and Lawrence E
to /5% Tremont to 10%c and Suffolk B
the same. Prints generally steady , and
low enough. at 12%®13c for first class
