OFFICE of PITTSBURGH Warn's, 4
FRIDAY, August 20, 1869.
There is no Improvement to note in
the tine of oil market either as regards
demand or prices, and the trade contin
ues in that unsettled and unsatisfactory
condition that has prevailed for several
Months, or we might say all this year.
The fact is, there is no chance for busi
ness in the present state of affairs, and
the bulk of the sales making from day to
day, are "settlements;" refiners cannot
entertain fresh negotiations for Refined
at present price of Crude, and the crude
dealer cannot make concessions, In view
of the prices in the producing region.
Compared with yesterday, the former
has again declined, and the latter is
weak but unchanged.
Circulars received today report the
stock of oil in Philadelphia on Saturday
last at 44,226 bbla relined, and 4,345 bbls
crude. Exports from New -York from
January Ist to date, 35,812,184 gallons;
same time last year 30,271,228; from Phil
adelphia, 17,081,560; same time last year,
But a single sale reported 1,000 seller all
1809 at 1434, and there ,were other offers
to sell same delivery at same price with-
out finding buyers. Spot or seller this
month was not offered below 15 here,
although we understand that there were
sales above at $5,85 on broad guage cars,
which is considered equivalent to 14%
or 14,x, delivered here.
Sale 500 bbls 'spot,- at 3IX; 500 each
September to December, at 32%; 2,000
each same months, at 32%; and 500 same
at 3214. While, as will be seen, prices
remain without esswitial change, com
pared with yeqorday, yet the feeling
seemed to denote weakness, and, as the
saying is, refined oil is now below cost.

PITTSBURGH IRON MARKET.
OFFICE OF PITTSBURGH GAZETTE,
FRIDAY, August 20, 1869. §
The metal market, compared with last
week, has undergone but little change,
and is devoid of anything really new or
important. Eastern Irons are not arriv
ing very freely which is in consegnence
of the fact that they are worth relatively
more in Philadelphia, and this being the
case the great proportion of Anthracite
furnaces are shipping all. or nearly so,
of their prodUct t o hat market. • There
is a fair business inw
estern Irons with
a better feeling re rted, but no essen
tial change in prices.
The Bellaire Nail Works 'were to re
sume operations Tuesday. hires were
lighted on Monday in a portion of the Bel
mont Mills. The Wheeling Intelligeneer
says that "next week the La Belle Mills
will commence a new year's campaign.
- We have not heard when Riverside and
Top Mills will resume."
