• It would appear that Chicago is threat
ened with a "corner" in Virhetit ; at least
it is intimated that some of the grain
manipulators there contemplate a
movement of this kind, ant a lively
time is promised before the first of next
The Republican of Tuesday says: "A
few parties who have bought a large lot
of wheat, seller the month, and seller
September at much higher prices than
those now ruling, have evidently come
to the conclusion that unless they resort
to some means to prevent prices from
going down, they will be large losers on
these purchases. Hence they put their
heads together, and concluded to buy
up all the spot wheat offered, thus pre
venting the "shorts" from filling in their
contracts, as there is less than 100,000
bushels of No. 2 spring—the grade sold
short in store here now, while it will
tike several hundreds of thousands of
bushels to fill in the contracts out for
the month, providing nothing but wheat
will satisfy the contracts. As it is, how
ever, the "shorts" have the best of the
bargain so far, as they were making set
tlements freely, but there is no telling
just what will be the market price on
on the last day of this month. The ac
tive members of the "ring" wear long
countenances over this, as it would ao.

hold the market up under the large re

that this combination ranee to make

and we will pay .you for it." They
know, as well as we, that there is not
enough wheat here by many thousand
bushels to fill the contracts they have
purchased, and have no hesitation in tel
ling their debtors to bring in wheat.
And so doing they have an excuse for
keeping prices up, and preventing (?)
any Committee from deciding there is a
"corner.,' This is part of the program
me as we understand it. There is a
"nigger in the fence" somewhere. else

OFFICE OF PITTSBURGH GAZETTE,
WEDNESDAY, August 25, 1869.
The oil market opened up strong in
the earlier part of the day, but in the
afternoon an easier feeling prevailed, .
and at the close it was rather weak, and,
if anything, a little dull, though in re
gard to prices, there is not much change, •
compared with yesterday.' l'he project
to close refineries until such time Sts a
margin is afforded to the refiners, meets
with pretty general approbation, among
manufacturers, and the indications now 2,
ar that quite a number of refineries will
be stanaing idle by the first of next
month. It is very unfortunate that
the trade is in such an unsatisfac- r
tory and unhealthy condition as to ren
der a movement of this kind necessary.
particularly at this season of the year,
but such is the case; there is no -- use in
trying to conceal it, and this is the only
remedy that promises relief. As noted,
yesterday, it is understood that Cleve
land willpursue a shriller course, and
there seems to be but little doubt, if
Cleveland and Pittsburgh move to.
