6 MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY. Thursday Evehino, May 8. There is still a sharp demand for money in this market, and wo would slightly amend our report of yesterday by saying that, while a-good many loans in the open market are made on the best-collaterals at 10 per cent per annum, a great many are also made at 12 per cent. Banks are also buying good paper from outsiders ”at 12 per cent, and, in some instances; even at 18 per cent per annum. The progress toward ease in the New York market is, however, having some effect to produce an easier feeling here. The demand for New York exchange ecemsto have,increased in the last two days, and a good many more of the country banks are ordering remittances of exchange than last week. Sales wore made between bonks to-day at 250 per 81,000 discount to par. A well-known London financier lately arrived here from that city reports great difficulty in negotiation of American railroad and other sim ilar securities in the London market Money seems to be plenty enough there, but there is a lack of confidence, of which there was no indica tion a year ago. It is undoubtedly the case that the'successive defaults in the payment of the stipulated interest on the bonds of various Western and Southern railroads has made a per manent unfavorable impression as to the char acter of nearly all American enterprises. It was, however, no more than reasonable to .expect, that the fever of rail road building and . the exportation of securities most culminate some time. The next thing to culminate is the excessive impor tation of foreign goods induced by the flush times that have been experienced as a result of the vast-disbursements of money in the West for the construction of the roads. The recu perative ability of the West ie bo great, and its production is so vast, that it will not take long to pat trade and finances on a sound legitimate basis again; but the activity of trade and en terprise vibrates continually between fever heat end the reaction from it, and for the present the tendency is toward the latter, and will result in the collapse of many unwise projects. _ THE MICHIGAN SOUTHZIIN BAXLBOA1) ANNUAIi BE- JPOBT. The-third annual report of the Lake Shore A Michigan Southern Railroad Company for the year ending Dec. 31,1872, shows the following figures: Capital stock. $50,000,000.00 Funded debts of the roads owned by the Company T0ta1..... $76,495,000.00 The earnings for tho year were: From freight. ;....$12,613,499.33 From passengers 4,163,513.76 From all other sources 814,616.35 Total Operating • expenses and taxes—67 per cent Ket earnings Interest bn funded debt, lessee, etc. $ 2,030,803.31 Dirideads—lo per cent on guaranteed, and 8 per cent on common stock—and in stallments of 5crip........ 8,519,446.00 Total..; Surplus for the year Gross earnings, 1870..... Gross earnings, 1871....'. Gross earnings, 1872 The increase in freight earnings is 2i% per cent; but, as the average rate per ton per mile is less than the rate of 1871 (being 137-100 cents in 1872 against 1 89-100 cents in 1871). Of late years, rates have tended downward so that the rate per ton per mile in 1872 is but little more'than half the rate of 1853. The ascertained results are as follows: 18C8....... - .2 43-100 cents per ton per mile 1869..... 2 34-100 cents per ton pgr mile 1870.. 1871.. 1872.. .., . .150-100 cents per ton per mile .... .139-100 cents per ton per mile The report claims that these figures disprove the assertion, so frequently made, that railroad companies make extortionate rates for their OTTO benefit and against the pnblio interest. The whole number ot miles of railroad owned and leased by tnis Company is 1,136. The Company-now has 222 miles of double track, (independent of its double lines between Cleveland, 0., and Elkhart, Ind.,) and in addi tion 310 miles of eide tracks. The Company will proceed with the construc tion of a new second track between Elkhart and Chicago as soon as practicable, and during the year make other *unprovements. Daring the year 1872, 72 engines and 1.718 new cars were added to the equipment of tno road, which now stands as -follows: 418 engines, 243 passenger cars, and 9,025 freight care of all classes. The Director* leave for Chicago to-morrow, on a tour of in spection of the road. At the annual meeting ot the Company, held in Cleveland, May 7, no changes were made in the Directory of last year. The following officers were re-elected: President, Horace Pi Clark; Augustus Schell; Treasurer, games H. Banker; Auditor, 0. P. Leland. No Rlctioti was taken in regard to the General Man- Pagership, loft vacant by tho resignation of J. H. Bevereauz. CHICAGO, MILLINGTON A WESTERN BAILBOA1). A dispatch to The Chicago Tbibdne, dated Princeton, DL, May 7, says; The surveying party on the Chicago, Millington & ■Western Railroad have reached Princeton, and will rest here for a few days to maim up their estimates, after which they will proceed west towards the Mis. aiaaippi. Prom Chicago to a point near Aurora, the line will be between the Northwestern and the Clin ton Beads, crossing the latter at West Aurora, thence through Millington on the west >wnv 0 f the river to Northvihe, Hardin, and - LaSalle, cross ing tho Illinois Central at its depot, and thence pass ing through' Peru on the bluffs to Princeton, striking the half-a-dozen coal shafts east of town. The heavi est grade will not exceed forty feet to the mile. The people all along the line are enthusiastic for the road. The' surveys on the Lafayette, b Clinton Railroad have been finished to a point on the Prophets town Boad two miles «»<■ side of Walnut, in Bureau County. The surveyors speak encouragingly of the prospect. It is understood that the Burlington Boad is largely interested in the Lafayette Boad, in or der to get the trade of the Bureau County coal mines.

Croffut, Esq., editor of the Minneapolis .$ 192,854.53 .... 14,797,975.07 Tribune, states that there are not far from 15,- 000,000 bn of wheat yet to come forward from Minnesota. We stated it at 12,000,000 a few days ago, which statement was contradicted by a cor respondent signing .himself “ Produce.” Mr. Oroffnt ongbt to know. There is a general expectation that ocean freights will rule very high in June, but reason to believe that lake freights will he reasonable, after all, though the outlook boomed otherwise at the opening of the season. At Elgin, on Tuesday last, the sales of butter and cheese were quite heavy, including 25,000 lbs of cream cheese to Wanzer Brothers and Davie Brothers, of Chicago, and 25,000 lbs skim cheese to B. B. Stone. The transactions in butter were large, prices running from 3So to SBo.. ■ There was some more scuffling on ’Change to day between a couple of clerks. It is now pro posed to put up a gymnasium for the especial use of such as cannot refrain from the attempt to act the cirona-olown. They ought to be kept off 'Change. The leading produce markets were quiet to day, especially so by contrast with yesterday, and with no considerable changes in price in those markets which most depend upon our execrable weather. The shipping movement was again slow. The fact is, that operators seem at a loss what to do, pending the time when Old Probabilities will make up his mind in regard to the weather of the summer and autumn. In the dry-goods market a fair amount of trading was done, and the prices current earlier in the week wore pretty generally adhered to. At the late reduction in brown and bleached cot tons there is an increased movement, and, at present prices, holders are unequivocally firm. Prints are selling irregularly. The grocery trade was dull except for the leading staples, in which fair activity was witnessed. Prices were un changed. . Coffees and sugars are very firm, while rice, soaps, candles, molasses, and other articles in the list, were only fairly so. The canned-goods market was without new features, the demand continuing moderate, with prices generally easy. Com and 2-lb tomatoes are ex ceptions, the supply of these being scant, and prices exceedingly firm. Cheese was inactive and nominal. But a small amount of trading was done in the coal market, and former rates were without change. Fish were fairly active, at firm prices. Dried fruits and nuts re main quiet and easy., A slight redaction in blackberries and Brazil nuts is noted, with which exceptions there was no material variation from former quotations. The hay market was dull and lower for timothy, but fairly active and steady for prairie. The receipts were liberal, and exceeded the demand. Hides remain dull and unsettled. Green cured were freely offered at lOfSll’fc, In the oil market business was moderately active, and most descriptions were firm, the only notable exception being lard. Linseed advanced 30, or to §1.00(5)1.05. Pig iron, tobacco, and wood were quoted steady. The demand for lumber continues to improve, the movement being chiefly in the common grades. At the yards prices for joists, scantling, fencing, and lath are lower; shingles on track are also easier. A fair business was transacted in lumber afloat, and the market ruled firm. Metals and tinners’stock, iron, and nails were in moderate demand. The market for common bar iron and nails is rather weak, but without quot able change. There was no further change in metals. Building materials remain quiet and unchanged. "Wool was In moderate request on Western account. The better grades of broom corn are fairly active and firm. Seeds were in moderate request at about yesterday’s prices. Choice peachblow potatoes were in fair request, while common and mixed lots were dull. Oran ges and lemons were higher; other fruits are without quotable change. Poultry was in fair supply and moderate local demand, chickens b f>fS a trifle easier. Eggs were active and firm at llM@l2c. Highwines were strong, and advanced another tfopcr gallon, though not reported materially “Bberin New York. Sales were made of 60 brls at 88xo, and later of 150 brls at BDc. Still an other sale was made of 60 brls at 90o: but that d^ tr ? n “ ctlon - 1,10 market closed with 890 bid. It is reported that all the high wmes m Peoria are hfld at 000, and that stoiks are generally light throughout theWeat, while the production is now being diminished. This brines speculative orders here, and caused the strength In prices noted for two or three days past Lake freights were dull and 1c lower, at TKc for com and 8o for wheat, by Bail, ti Buffido. and 13 and 14c for corn and wheat, by sail to Kingston. A total of 4 charters was reported which will carry out 80,000 bu wheat and 70,000 bu com. There are not many vessels offering, but the feeling is decid edly weak, as shippers hold off persistently. It • is probable that vessels could have been obtain ed to-day to load with corn next week to Buffalo at 7c. Through freights, by lake and rail, are quoted at 45n pccaj.oo lbs to New York, and 50c to Boston. Provisions were dull. Mess pork was the only thing dealt in, and declined 10@15o per brl, with no demand at the close. Lard and meats were nominally unchanged. There is no shipping demand of consequence for product, and the specnlatiTe demand seems to have been satis fied, as the shorts have filled in, and many operators think that present prices are scarcely safe for investment, especially on pork.

The shipping movement noted yesterday seemed to have quieted down, and with worse weather here, and greater firm ness in New York, our market was strong with out being active. The hoar element did not deem it safe to sell farther, and. the longs did not want 10 sell under tno circumstances; hence, there were few offerings to meet a light demand. The receipts continue small, and many operators think wo shall not receive largely- from* the country till the next crop is assured. Holders wore also less anxious in view of a farther decline in freights, which makes a dim inution of fully Ic per bu in the difference be tween prices here and in Now York. Seller Juno was the principal deal, the option opened at $1.23, advanced %c, declined to $1.27%c, rose to $1.23%, and closed at $1.28. Seller the month sold at $1.26%@1.27. closing at $1.26%.

Total, 160,200 bu. Com was less active, and rather firm, at the same average of prices as yesterday. . The feel ing in the speculative grade was weak early, but was strengthened by a subsequently ascertained decline in lake freights, which permitted a fur ther advance of 3£c per bu in rejected. There were said to be a fair number of buying orders for next month on the market; but mostly at figures below the quotations of the day. Hence, comparatively little was done in options, though there was a fair shipping demand, and some inquiry for fresh receipts to carry against options. Seller Juno opened at 40>4c, advanced to 40J£c, and recoded to 40% c at the close.

The Saginaw ("Mich.) Courier Bays: In the booms of the mills af the Saginaw Elver at the close of last season there was 48,380,815 fei)t of logs. In the Tittabawaasee boom there was left over what was estimated to bo 75,000,000 feet. In the Biilo boom there was 16,000,000, and on the Sable 20,000,000, making in all 168,380,845 feet of available logs. There were also hnngnp in the several streams that were not available, and aro not likely to bo available this year, logs estimated as follows: Fut, ..130,000,000 ... 70,000,000 .. 52,000,000 .. 60,000,000 Tittabawasßee Cass Au Gr0«....... Bad Eakawiin Total bung up. 317,000 ,000 -fcrom too moat reliable accounta most of those logs, or an amount more than equal to the above, are likely to lay over for another year. The log cut last winter was much smaller on all the streams than the previous winter. While it was .first expected that there would be ample water to ?22s°. ut . all . thßlo 8 B on thß Tittabawassee and tributaries m particular, the freshet, -which was sufficient if it had lasted, was of so short duration that the water went down before the logs could be handled, and left them in a worse shape than the pterions year. On one or two streams not a log came up. Th© Chip pewa salt is cited as an instance. AU th© logs are hung up in this stream, the first time in five years. Logs on Bad River are in had shape, and, while they had a regular flood in the Cass, and a large proportion of the logs will come out of this stream, much difficulty will he had with the roar, as the freshet has left logs scattered around the country, outside the river banks, for miles and miles. At present no safe calculations can be made as to the log crop. The Tittabawasssc boom will have all ft can do, but, worked to its full capacity, wo doubt whether it will run out more logs than last season. The Cass River will fall under last year, and the Bad River will do but little if any better. CALIFORNIA. PRODUCE^ The San Francisco Commercial Herald Bays Themonth of April was in every sense a dry month. It was not until the 20th that we were visited wUh any showers; then, again, on the 37th, with a • alight rain* fall. In all, less than one-half an inch of water fell in April, on an average, throughout the State. This little revived tue drooping grain, bat wae not sufficient to secure a crop on late planted fields ; neither has it fur nished us all the moisture required to secure to ns a full average crop yield. We want more rain, and that ‘ speedily, to save many largo wheat fields from entire destruction. Usually the month of May gives ns a few passing showers, ana we are yet hopeful that wo'znay thus bo blessed. Accounts from the interior are very conflicting. In some localities around our own bay, where last yearcrops were light and blasted, prospects are now very brilliant for full average crops. Others again are quite the reverse, yet we do not be lieve that the cereal crops os a whole are anything like as unpropitlous as some people would like to make us believe. It may be that the crops on the west side of the Ban Joaquin arc suffering severely, yet even there, there will be enough for seed and food, leaving us tbo great eastern valley of the river, otc., to feed the mul titude and for export. It Is idle to make estimates thus early in the season, but, barring the lack of rain the last month or six weeks, the weather has been cool and remarkably ' propitious for the growing crops, and this must tell at the time of harvest. Tako the press of the State as an entirety, and among our many exchanges we do not see any very general com plaint concerning the growing wheat, while some of the papers, that are usually filled at this season of the year with groaning*, have now no fears to express. Wo will, therefore, bide our time, still hopeful of a crop equal to that of 1872, and that we are quite sure to have it favored with rains within the next ten days. The State has this season been wonderfully exempt from the cold drying winds which generally parch and dry up every green crop, and wo hope things will yet result better than the fears of many. During the past week there has been an increased de sire manifest to purchase wheat, accelerated somewhat by the advancing tendency of the Liverpool market, now Id higher than a fortnight since. The following correspondence explains itself, and will be found of groat interest to the grain trade: Spbinofisld, May 2,1873. Gejttlemen : I see by the Chicago papers a state' meat that the Grain Inspectors of that city hare been, and are now, discriminating against grain shipped by the canal and river to Chicago, which statement, if not contradicted or explained, will greatly injure the State, ■and destroy the usefulness of the canal os a competing line of communication. 1 cannot think that any such action is designed or intended by you, or by Mr. Harper, the Grain Inspector of Chicago, and that If corn or other grain shipped by the canal was passed at a low grade, or as rejected, there most hare'been some good reasons for it. Having a groat interest in the canal and river improvement, and also believing, as X do, that, if not discriminated against, it will be one of the most effective measures in preventing unjust discrimination and extortion by the railroad companies, I look with alarm upon any action that will tend In the least to destroy its usefulness as a competing line of communication, and I should be glad to receive such explanation from you as will place the matter right before the people. Very respectfully yours, ' Jumps 8. Stabs. To the Hon. H. D. Cook, D. A. Brown, and John Hereon, Bail road and -Warehouse Commission ere, Springfield, Hi. Hon . Julius A . Starr : Sm: Your letter, under data 2d Inah, to the Honor able Board of Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners, concerning the inspection of canal grain, has. been re ferred to me for consideration. The Grain Inspection Department of Chicago baa not been, nor is it now, discriminating against canal grain. My earnest en deavor is to correctly understand the inspection laws, and to so administer them oa will render os equal and exact Justice to the shipper, the carrier, and to the best interests of the trade of this city, and to the produc ing nations at largo, as possible. The. Inspection law says So. 2 com shall be dry, and that alt davip com shall be graded rejected. Now 1 assert, without any tear of successful that every boat-load of canal com that has been graded rejected was so graded in consequence of beiug damp . dirty, or putting such aa would bo graded rejected with such as would be graded No. 2, in order to raise tho grade of the mixture. Now it must be re member ->d that the law requires that oil grain shall bo inspected In accordance with the lowest quality found in any lot of grain, and here is where a wrong impres sion maybe obtained, in the following manner: A boat-load of com amounts to from 5,000 to G,OOO bush els, which is equal to about 15 car-loads. According to the law, if there should not be more than one car-load of grain equal to rejected in tho boat, and the balance should be equal to No. 2,1 am compelled to grade it all rejected. But if the same lot of grain were to ar rive In 16 different cars it might be that one or two or three can would contain all the rejected quality, which would leave tho balance of the cars equal to No. 2. Tho producers and shippers should rein ember that tho years 1871 and 1872 were very dry seasons, and in consequence there was very little damp com, while tho past winter there was an unusual quantity of snow, and the present spring there has been a great deal of rain. that has arrived this spring bad been dry, it would, with perhapa slight exceptions, have been graded No. 2. In every instance where consigners or owners of canal com have been dissatisfied with toe first regular inspection, 1 have in every such Instance reinspected it with the greatest care. I am complying strictly with the law governing In spectors, and have no discretionary power, bnt after the Ist of July, when the new law goes into effect, the Board of Commissioners will have power to alter or amend the grading system by giving twenty days no tice. Very respectfully, W. H. Eibpxb, Chief Inspector^ In the afternoon wheat was fairly active and firmer. No. 2 spring sold at <51.27@1.273£ cash, and seller June, closing at Com was in fair demand and steady at cash and iO%@4D%a seller June, the latter option closing at the inside.
