MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY. TurnDAV Evf.uiho, May Tho local money market continues piled With loanable funds, and approved bor rowers got what they want without muoh diffi culty; New York exchange continues steady at •bout 250 per SI,OOO prouilura for Bales between banks. . ■„ Tho moTomont of ourrenoy In any direction to or from this city has boon light for a week past;* tut to-day there was a considerable increase In tbo country orders, and some' considerable amounts Wore sent out, the largest ones going' to Milwaukee, whore the ourrenoy la probably, required for distribution In tho oodntiy to aid In' tho marketing of wheat. Tho failure of a prominent speculator In grain io-day occurred under circumstances which Illus trate in a Tory romarkahlo manner tho extremely artificial character of tho prices of grain as ma nipulated In this market. • The falling operator was “abort" 1,600,000 bushels of wheat for May and Juno delivery, which ho dbld some weeks ago ot prices which, compared with tho prices at tho Instant of his failure, would mako a loss of over SIOO,OOO. In tho contest between tho .bulls on one sldo and tho boors on tho other, of which this failure is only one.of tbo Incidents, It is of courso under stood that, lu a moral point of view, neither side baa anything to brag of. But there is another aspect of tho case which has somo interest in tho fact that tho operations of the falling party wore made lu strict accordance with tho natural tendency of prices, and but for tho groat weight of capital thrown in tho opposite scale to coun teract this natural tendency, ho would have boon successful; In other words, prices would havo declined as ho believed they would. ‘ Statistics that are perfectly reliable enow that the quanti ty of wheat now afloat for Groat Britain, whore the market price for tho world is fixed, is nearly throe times as groat as it was •t this time last year, this great increase coming mainly from California and Australia. Tho in crease in tho exportable surplus of wheat out of tho 1872 crop of wheat in California alono, Is equal to an increase of 60 per oout in tho export able surplus of wheat from tho United States this year, compared with tho crop and exports of 1871 and 1872. Notwithstanding those foots, and tho addition al ones that thoro was not a short crop of wheat in any considerable source of supply in the world in 1872, and that in tho wheat-raising dis trict northwest of this city there is still a larger amount of wheat than usual to come for ward yet, it appears that local, capital was able to make an advance of near 10 cents per bushel in this market during tho past month or six weeks. That this rise was made in defiance of what was evidently the natural coarse of prices, must have been ap parent to every one who endeavored to And out by statistics tho prospects for the future. Con ceding that, in the case of tho failure in ques tion, it was simply a gambling operation, the fact to bo eliminated from tho whole speculative contest is, that tho manipulation of prices in this marker can tompoarily defeat and counteract their natural tendency, so that every legitimate buyer and seller is obliged also to bo a specula tor, or at least to govern his movements more by those of tho speculators than by any facta In connection with the laws of supply and demand. Those laws, however, do assort their supremacy in tho end, and tho * whole community is visited with tho penalty of thoir violation by tho speculators. An instance of this occurred last summer, when the various comers in grain in this market sustained piicos r.t a fictitious range so much above the general price in tho European markets that for some months it would,not pay to ship wheat or corn from bore. Tho result was that, during tho most of the summer, when tho grain should have boon going forward freely at cheap freights, the lake fleet of vessels had very littlq to do. But in tho fall tho graiu came In an avalanche. Vessel-freights went up to extravagant figures, and tho winter dosed upon on enormous stock of grain in tho West, and tho endeavor to market some of this surplus by. roll in the winter was one of the causes of tho extravagant railroad freights tba have continued with but little abatement over since. THU CAPITAL AND “ WATER ” PEB MLE OF THE GREAT TRUNK LINKS. It is of ton claimed by the railroads that their not profits do not pay oven tbo best managed roads in tbo most populous Slates over 8, and at the most 10, por cunt on tbo capital invested in them, but the fact is thatlbo not profits of many of tbo groat trunk lines, between tbo Bast and tbo West aro that por cent on double tbo actual coat of tbo roads and rolling-stock. It is a pretty well established fact that the aver age cost of building now railroads, evon in tbo . populous States oast of Chicago, does not ex ceed $26,000 to .£BO,OOO por milo, including east of right-of-way, depots, car-shops, oto., and that tbo highest cost of tbo most complete equip ments of rolling stock is not In excess of SIO,OOO per milo. Tho Chicago <fc Alton Bead, though not east of Chicago, will at least afford a fair ex ample of thehigbesblogitimate cost of a railroad between two great cities. Tbo total amount of capital stock and bonds of -this road ore a little over SIO,OOO por milo, while tho capital stock and bonded debts of nearly all tbo great trunk linos from boro eastward will average probably $60,000 por milo, as will bo soon by tho follow ing : .LAKE snono A MiamaAST SOUTHERN.

Tho charges of tho St. Louis Democrat against our Board of Trade are singularly illustrative of tbo fact that St. Louis capitalists do a great-deal of business through commission men here, and that no less than four prominent St. Louis firms have recently removed to this city for tho ex press purpose of transacting such business for Si. Louis principals. One would think such men would not come horo if they thought our Board ofTrodotobo a paradise of sharpers; unless they were sharpers themselves—and even the Democrat would scarcely dare to mako that charge. The inspection of canal corn is still the sub ject ,of loud complaint. Without expressing any opinion as to whether or not those com plaints bo well founded, wo wish to call attention to the fsot that winter shelled corn is generally more or lossdamp, and that this fact was so fully recognized that when thoßoard of Trade controll ed tbo inspection, the corn of tho now crop was always inspected ns “new” till near the open ing ol navigation, and sometimes after that date; being admitted to bo too damp to pass muster as No. 2.

Tho leading produce markets wore stronger to-day, and some of them were excited as well as higher, principally under the prospect of being able to ship our grain Eaut at lower freight rates, while Eastern markets were generally strong. This caused a good shipping movement, and called out speculative buyers. The flue weather bad no effect in depressing prices. The demand for dry goods was reasonably ac .Uye, local as weAfea Ulterior dealers ordering freely, and. At tins late revision In prices,.. the. market exhibits a Arm, healthy.tone, .’Groceries wore moving to a moderate extent only, and word not nubjoctod to any appreciable change in -values. Coffees wore la good demand, •spoon* laUvoly, ns well an for consumption, and holders Wore firm in their views at the advanced prices established yesterday. Sugars are moving more freely, without improvement in prices, the large supply operating to prevent an advance. Prices of this staple are now lower than at any previous period within tho past ten years, and there Is a largely increased consumption in consequence. The deliveries for bonsmhption, shioo Jan. 1, at tho four principal sugar ports, amount to 100, COO tone, against 180,800 during the corre sponding period last year, 174,000 In 1871, and 1*14,000 m 1870, Tons woro weok,and nnsottlod. lllco, spices, and soaps ruled steady.. There was a fair demand for butter, tho comparatively low S rices now prevalent having attracted the atton* 1 on of buyers, and prices were steadier, at 9® 20c for Inferior to medium, and at' 24@800 for. good to strictly choice. No now features woro noted In tho choose or oannod goods markets, tho demand continuing light at former Quota tions. Coal was nnsottlod, and tending lower. Tim arrivals by lake continue largo.- Hay was in bettor request, without change In prices- Hides were extremely dull, and a general reduction in prices waa made. Buyers seem loth to take hold, even at tho relatively low rates now prevalent, ana .there arc indications of a further decline. There woro free sellers at o>£o for heavy green salted, and at l(%o for light do. There were no changes in tho oil, pig iron, tohacod, and wood markets. Dried fruits were moving to a fair ex tent at previous quotations. A fair business was transacted at (ho lumber yards to-day at about yesterday’s range of prices. Trade on tho docks was rather quiet; there was quite an inquiry, but the offerings were restrict ed to a few cargoes. Building materials remain quiet and unchanged. Iron, steel, and nails are In fair demand, tho.ratos for tho two former ar ticles being unchanged, but nails are weak and irregular. Metals and tinners* stock are moot ing with a light but Increasing demand. Tlnplato is rather weak,, in sympathy with tho Eastern markets, owing to a desire by iiomo importers to realize. Naval stores woro fairly active and steady. Wool and broom com wore in tolerably fair demand, the former among Western manu facturers only, goods woro more active than yesterday, at about tho same range of prices. Qreon fruits are unchanged. Oranges, lemons, and choice apples continue scarce and firm. Poultry was in light supply, and a trifle higher. Eggs were active and Arm at 18@19^o. llighwlnos were more active, and quito Arm at the recent advance, with sales of 250 brl at 89|£o per gallon. Holders generally talked about m siatlug on 000 till near tho close, as several oth er markets woro quoted stronger, in sympathy with tho rise in corn ; but they wore unable to obtain the advance, though there woro free buy ers at and tho market closed strong at that flguro. Xako freights woro' moro' active, but again weak, declining o from the published rates. of yesterday, though there la now reason to be lieve that the quotations wero higher than tho facts. Buffalo rates by sail woro s^@6o for com, and o@C)£o for wheat, closing at the in side. Wheat to Kingston or Oswogo was quoted at 180, com to do at 12c. A total of 14 charters was reported (including some last even ing) which will carry ont 151,000 bu wheat, and 800,000 bu com. There sCems to bo some dan ger; that tho unnatural strength in lake freights, experienced a few weeks ago, will bo followed by a depression to an equally unnatural 1 low point, which will not permit living profits. Tho effects of this would be-almost equally disas trous as the other extreme, and one of the effects would bo a withdrawal of vessels from the grain trade, which would cause aghit hoio. and a depression in prices. “ Live and lot llvo ” is a good motto for both carriers and shippers, as well as tho rest of tho world. Buying. Stilton, • 1I5;< •lift.** in# Through freights, by lake and rail, are quoted unchanged by agents, at 450 per 100 lbs to Now York; but there is a very general Impression that they are weak. Provisions were in fair demand, and firm under light offerings. Mods pork was C@loo per brl higher, with a fair aggregate of transactions for this part of the year. Lard was in good demand for next raoutlra delivery, and 6@7>£o per 100 Ihg higher, there being ocarcoly any offered at the advance, Moata were quiet and unchanged. There is now loss disposition, to sell any descrip tion of product than last week; na the weak holders have enld out; and most of the stock now hero is boliovod to have worked • round Into strong hands.

Flour was in fair demand, and rather more active than yesterday. There was only a mod erate Inquiry for ohtpment, but a bettor local demand, the lower grades being most wanted by all classes of buyers.

Liver pool was early quoted higher, and, Now York was afterwards reported stronger, while it was ascer tained that largo quantities wore bought yester day for shipment, a foot not known when wo made up our record of that day's trading. To these influences wore added the other facts of light receipts and a largo short interest for this mouth, as well as a full one for next. The last was the most cogent of the lot. Wo stated in this morning’s issue that one party alone was known to'he short on 050,000 bu for May, and to-day it was ascertained that his total shortage is not far from 1,600,000 bu. This, with the shipping demand caused by lower freights, has brought cash wheat up to the prico of seller Juno, ond made that option advance to-day, under rather liberal bids from the short Interest, who grow nervous at the prospect. This con tinued up to about 1 o'clock, when it suddenly subsided on the announcement that the said short operator had failed—to put up mors margins when called upon. It was generally understood that the parties who hold his promises to dplirer weroprotccted up to about $1.28, so that the undivided losses will not he so heavy as under some other cases of “lying down." Of course, S rices dropped when the news was received, ellor Juno, or cash No. 2 spring, opened at $1.29%, advanced to $1.80)/, declined to SI.BO, rose to $1.31%, and fell to $1.30% at tbo close, with liltlo discrimination in favor of fresh re ceipts.

Total. 213,800 lm. Com was octive and fully lo higher, tho mar ket being an excited one during the greater part of the session, in sympathy with wheat, and partially because of a decline in freights, which, with light receipts, was sufficient to render nugatory tho effect of the announcement that com was heavy aud lower In Now York. There was a moderate shipping demand, but the bulk of tho trading was in the filling of shorts for next month, though there was much mere done than usual iu buying for investment in the far ther feature. A considerable part of the demand for June was believed to bo on account of parties In the country who had sold to arrive iu that mouth, but preferred to sell farther ahead, par tially moved thereto by tho fear that their corn would inspect rejected if sent in early, while It would be more likely to pass as No. 2 If sent in later to tho year, miVVintAUU Seller Juno opened at 42X0» declined to 421/0, dvanood to 430. and weakened to 42j/o at the ol6so, on receipt of tho laloet Now York advices.

I boo yon havo published the letter from Chief Inspector Harper, or ratborbia interpretation of the Inapoction lavs as given in bis letter to tho Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners, in which be flays 5 44 My earnest endeavor is to correctly underutand tbo Inflection laws, and to bo ad minister fhbm as will render equal and exact Justice to tho chipper, tbo carrier, and to tho best interest of tbo trade of this city, and to tbo producing Bociionu at largo.!’- Now, this ia just exactly what .wo complain of. -I; aa a person who lives in a producing section,' and wbooemls grain to your city, want it inspected on its merits. IJot as Mr. Harper says bo has done, faking Into con sideration while Inspecting—l. The intoroola of tbo ablppor, who may oond it to Buffalo, Now. York,'or Liverpool. 2. The iuloroatu of tbo bar rier who may freight jt for tho abipper. Nor should that which ho classes 8, the iutorccta of your city,bo considered while bo is passing judg ment upon a boat-load ot corn that may ho owned by Romo person living in one of tbo 41 producing sections at largo.” Mr. Harper, ‘ in hia letter to the CommiHalonors, cites tbo cane: A boat-loud. of com amounts to 6.000 or 0,000 bushels, which is equal to fifteen car-loade* and, if ho niioulil iiud-ouo~ fifteenth of that boat-load not reasonably clean, bo ia bound to grade it rejected, not taking into consideration tbo fact that, in loading a* boat by any of the many elevators along tho lino of tbo canal.it is impossible to prevent dirt .from ac cumulating in tbo batches of tbo boat. Ho can stop outside tho lottor of tho law to consider tho interest of tho shipper, tho carrier, and what ho terms tbo interests of tho City of Chicago (which I think ho must have misnamed, they being really those of tbo elevator*)).; but whoa asked by. one. who lives ia a producing dis trict to consider that three-fonrtbe of the dirt in a boat-load of com is necessarily accumulated in the hatches of tho boat which ho is inspecting, his reply is, “I dm complying strictly with the law governing the inspection, and I have no dis cretionary power.” So tho case stands thus : Ho endeavors to administer the Inspection laws to the best interest of tbo shipper, tbo carrier, and the elevators, but when asked to consider the in terest of one living m a producing section bo replies, " I have no discretionary power.”. • One "Who Lives in a PuoDDoiNa Section, LATEST.

Tussdat Evektko, May 18. The first half of the week under review was rainy and unfavorable to nn active trade movement, and business In all departments of the market was dull, but the ploaeant weather of the past few days has greatly stimulated' the demand, and tho aggro* gate of sales shows a respectable Increase over that of last week, or tho preceding one. The Inquiry, though embracing nearly all unce of goods, has boon mainly centered in staple colored and leached cottons, which, ot the late reduction, are con* sldorcd a good Investment. Tho demand for carpets continues uninterruptedly good, and as stocks are well worked down, the market maintains tho firm tone that has characterized it for a month met. Prices rango substantially the same as on tho data of onr last re view. Among the rocont changes in dry goods quota tions we note a decline la Cocheco, Dnnncll, and Richmond fancy prints; a &o decline in Naumseag, Pequot, and Laconia corset Jeans,a wo In Slater’s and Manvjllo’s paper cambrics, and a %o fa Waiuautta and Fruit of the Loom bleached cottons. Tho Now York Dry Goodt Reporter eays of tho foreign dry goods trade: “ The Besson la past and tbo spring business tony bo counted as over, as far uj looking at sales la a profita ble light, and while prices are unsatisfactory and havo been all through the year, thoae realised upon tho many odds and ends of a season’s stock cannot bo any Improvement upon what has boon done. Many styles of dross-goods arc now open that it would not do to carry over on account of stylo and colors, and they will have to bo sold very low, and the longer It Is do* forred the worse will be the result. Neither tho high cost of goods In Europe or tho high premium on gold hero have been able to give any life to tho market, am) holders will have to labor and find themselves for tho balance of the - 'season, as they havo generally dono since tho opening of tho year.” Atlantic A, 4-4 13#o Atlantic H, 4-4 13 Atlantic D, 4-4 13 Atlantic P, 4-4 11 Indian Head, 4-4....13# Indian Head, 3-4....11# Stark A, 4-4.........13* Nsshrillo, 80 in 13 Nashville, 00 in II TINE D 1 Nashua 8,,40-In 16 o Nashua B, 30-ln 14 Nashua O, 33-In 13 Peppcroll E, 40-1U...14# Poppcroll It, 30-1n...13 Pepperell 0,33-1n... 13 Pepporcll N,30-in... 11 MorrimaoW.
