The unfavorable rePoits about the

consequently declined to 11), and closed
weak and dull.
Government bonds, in sympathy with
gold, declined, and when the large gov

downward course, the demand for in

are more seller's than buyers in the mar
Stocks are dull and. weak and de.

Stocks generally lower, closing unset

The decline in Pacific Mail was ac

the manipulations of Mr. Drew.
The rise in • Rock Island was - due
to rumors of purchases for account
of parties connected with the Pennsylva

WEDNESDAY, Auzust 11, 1869.
The markets, in a general way, present
but little that is new or really important.
For most of the leading articles there
is a fair local demand and a moderate
volume of business in the aggregate,
but there is no change to note in values
with the exception of flour and grain,
which are both considerably stronger
under the influence of the advices
from both east and west; there is not
much excitement here, however, and
the demand is confined mainly to . sup
plying immediate wants, and the im
pression prevails that the present flur
ry in New York and Chicago will be
of short duration. That there is an im
proved export demand for both wheat
and flour at. New York is conceded, but.
as nearly always is the case, speculators
run prices up to such a pitch that ex
porters could not buy, and the conse
quence, is a slight reaction. Flour and
wheat are both relatively cheaper here
than almost any other place in the
.country and as we have repeatedly
stated, 1 is owing mainly to s strong
and, in ome instances, bitter lcical com
APPLES—In good supply, and dull
and drooping; sales at $2,50©3,60®4, for
lair to choice.
BUTTER—AIso is dull, with a supply
considerabl in excess of the demand,
and prices e barely sustained, 20@25,
for lair to c °ice.
BERRIE —Blackberries , - are not so
plenty, the arrivals, apparently having
fallen oil' considerably, but, prices re
main unchanged, at t , 1®1,25 per pail,
BEANS—Bales at $1,75®2.
BROOMS—Quoted as follows: No. 5 •
$6.50; No. 4 $0; No. 3 $5, No. 2, plain,
$4,50, and market firm..
CHEESE—Although firmer, is quiet
and unchanged. -
CEMENT—Johnstown Hydraulic Ce
ment is quoted at *2,25 per bol.
CARBON OlL—Standard brands may
be quoted at 28 for 50 or 100 bbl lots and
30 in a retail way.
DRIED FRUIT—Out of season.
EGGS—Very dull at,15®16.
FEATHERS—DuII; quoted at 80®S5
cents to the trade, and the usual advance
for small lots in store. '
FLOUR—Is arriving more freely, and
notwithstandimr• none can be brought
here from Chicego,_the supply seems to
be fully up the demand, ancrthe market
although firm, is quiet. We continue to
quote Spring Wheat brands at 57,00®
7,25 for fair to good, and 57,5007,75, for
choice to fancy.
GRAlN—Wheat is scarce and in steady
milling demand at $1,30®1,35 for new,
and $1,40 for old-41,45 offered to-day
for tbe latter. It is true, the mills can
scarcely afford to buy at these prices, as
it seems impossible to advance flour in
this market, but still they aro obliged to
