rgy Telegraph to the Pittsburgh tiatette
NEw Yonx, August 9,1869.
Private cable telegrams from Europe
to-day report bad weather and injury to
the growlng crops in Great Britain and
France, and higher quotations in the,
English grain markets than reported by
the press telegrams. This caused great
animation on the Produce Exchange and
stimulated a sharp upward movement in
prices. Exporters appeared inforce and
took 250,000 bushels of wheat and 26,000
barrels of flour, at an advance of eight to
ten cents per bushel on,-the former and
twenty-five cents per barrel on the latter.
The markets were sweptof all the stuff
offering within shippers' limits. This
large movement iti breadstuffs for export
was felt in the ,different departments of
speculation in• Wall street. In the Gold
Room the market fell to 135%, on the
theory that produce shipments would
make a-'large exchange, and stop the

at first refused to give him hp to the

upon the latter said he should
direct the Sheriff to enforce the
writ and called upon the State

in the State Court, whereupon Mr.
Plerrepont stated the circumstances of
the case, and asked that the prisoner be
remanded to the custody of the United
States Marshal. This was objected to by
his counsel, on the ground that the Fed

the Judge granted the request of the Dis
