6 MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY. ■ Sarnanax Evesino, May 17... ' The demand for money in the local market has been active and .steady, throughout the week. At the banks having the largest lines ot mercan tile accounts this has been particularly the case than at others where a large share of'the ac counts are speculative. In the open market there is still a fair supply o£ money offered on prime collaterals at 10 per cent. " ‘ lievrTLOrk'exchange continues firm at par.' Sterling exchange -advanced If of 1 per ■ - cent in New York to-day, and is now almost up to the specie shipping point. An advance of Jf of 1 per cent more would undoubtedly cause & large ■export of gold. The price of gold ad vanced at one time to-day to lisif, hut'fell back to 118 at the close. It ia probable that the Whole effects of the Vienna panic have not been ■. experienced yet, and that this xiee in the price of gold and foreign exchange ie one ot the indica ‘ .lions of the" unsettlement of"confidence in financial affaire in Europe; The clearings of the Chicago banks for ■ the week were : - Sate.

The great bulk of the transactions are purchases of lots to be occupied by the buyers as homes, and the great majority of these newhomes are in the semi-suburban districts just outside the fire limits, where lots can be bought at prices rang ing from SSO to SIOO per front foot. It would be difficult to say in which direction the activity' in this class of property is greatest. Arido around the outskirts of the city, just outside the fire limits, will convince any one that' wooden houses are stSI the favorite style of building in this city. Between Lincoln avenue and the North Eranch, as far south as North avenue; between UQ wankee avenue and Western avenue, as far south as Kinzie street; between Madison street and Ogden avenue, east of Western avenue, and again between the Burlington Bailroad and Blue Island avenue, as far as a half a mile west of Western avenue, where the McCormick factories are located; and again just southwest of Brighton, where L Adam Smith’s ; various enterprises are stimulating tin location of workmen’s homes; and again in the district between the Stock-Yards and the Bock Island Bailroad shops,—-in all this great semi circular belt, about seven miles long by one mile broad, new wooden buildings are being erected, not simply by the hundred but by the thousand. At State e treet on the south andNortb Clark street on the north continuity of this line of now wooden houses is broken. The property east of these two streets to the like shore hears a much higher price, andisnot being improved with the same rapidity nor with the same class of houses as that west of them. Ms LAKE SHOES PETTE has now been made passable immediately along the water’s-edge, nearly as far north as the Lake "View House. To the public spirit of Mr. B. F. Culver, who has borne the main part of the ex pense of making a smooth roadway along Lake . View avenne, from Lincoln Park to the junction with the lake-shore drive, just north of Barry avenue, the public are greatly indebted for the means of' reaching the shore north of Lincoln Park. If, all other- owners of the lake shore property north of .the Park were willing to do as much, that , district, would not be eo far behind others in the way of an increase ,of residences and.population as it is. But there are anumber of ' owners of large tracts of land in that quarter, whose policy us to fight tax-assessments _and‘ wait for others to sell and improve the adjqjningt property, while they do nothing . . SOUTH of and particularly south of .CMdfigSt'avehue," the"” burnt district of the North beingu built up with even a better - claasoiroeidehoesj than were -there before the 1 fire,-and with »• rapidity that will convince any one that, oh'the 7 average, the residence district south of tneTpark -and as far west-as Sedgwick street will soon he a •finer one than it was two years ago.

The fact that the Calumet Biver is natu rally as good a harbor as Chicago Hirer, and that for six or seven miles of its length reaching, westward toward Blue Island and Heights the facilities for the dockage of lumber, coal, and iron, and for the transfer of grain and other products to vessels, will soon he as good as it is on tho South Branch of the Chi cago Biver, and that these facilities can-he had for about one-tenth ‘ of . the price . they can on the South Branch at Western avenue, cannot fail to - eventually attract a portion of that class of business from Chicago Biver and build up at South Chicago a nucleus of business that will draw the city to ward it. The partial revolution likely to be made in “the lumber trade of this city by the in auguration of the system of towing rafts of logs across the lake from the Michigan pineries, to he sawed up here,will necessarily go to the Calumet Biver. One large firm have already bought a submerged tract of twenty-eight acres on the north side of the Calumet, about two miles west of the lake shore, and will use it for booming the logs ' they expect, *to have' towed over and sawed up* there. The great hulk of the lumber that goes out of Chicago by rail, goes either directly south or southwest, and, to meet the requirements of this trade; there is no point about ,this city, that can offer half the advantages of the Calumet Biver. - Tho construction by the Bock Island Bailroad Company of a branch. line from Washington Heights to South Chi cago will bo an accomplished fact before next fall. This track will furnish, according, to contract, a means of transit to South Chicago for the ' freight-care of eveiy road that now comes into the city. The mouth of the Calumet Biver is only eleven miles south of the month of Chicago Biver. Already tho city extends, a con continuous line of houses, along the lake shore more than half of that distance, and it can only be a few years until it will extend so as to meet | the improvements at South Chicago, and make it practically a part of the city. • 125 130 ....100' 110 170 @lB5 125 @240 .. • 185 Ayres A Eoff sold 10 acres off the cast side of the W.

The whole pt the property in this 'district is rapidly passing into’ flip hands of r owners who will occupy it ; for their perma nent'residence, and there Is perhaps no other district about this city where so many spacious, 'quiet, and beautiful homes are being made. Prices range there from about£loo.per front foot near Forty-seventh street, to £6(l per front foot about Fifty-fourth street. .. . o?T a THE AVENUES.” V ; from Fortieth street to Fifty-first street, "VTa bash, Michigan, Indiana, and Prairie, where prop erty is held* at from £l4O to £6O per foot, accordingto location, there is less activity in building, than, on the streets east of the two parkways. This, however, is the finest unim proved property that lies so near tho city, and in a few years will undoubtedly bo one of the most desirable residence quarters to be found about Chicago. Seven years ago the lots on Michigan avenue, from Twenty-fourth to Thirty-first streets, wore worth from £IOO to £6O per front foot; now they sell at from £350 to £250, atiiL aV the rate the city, is being extended southward, it is reasonable to suppose that the property south of Fortieth street, now held at from £l4O to £6O per front foot,: will in seven years sell from 1 £3OO to ,£2OO per foot, 1 IK SUBURBAK ACBE3 the ’speculation ia; mainly in two general direc tions:- One west of Central, Park, around* the new Northwestern car shops, and extending westward to Harlem and northward to tho line of the Chicago A Pacific Bailroad ; the other south ward toward Washington Heights, where great and substantial improvements are being made.. The comparative cheapness of the land a mile or so southwest of Brighton is also inducing some investment. The speculation in the lower priced land, southwest of South Lynne, is not so rampant as it was aiew weeks ago. I . SOUTH CHICAGO. SALES BY THE ACRE. RmrMABT FOB THB WEEK.

THE MARKETS, The leading produce "markets ■were rather quiet to-day at about the same general average of prices, as weakness in com and oats wasbal anced by higher prices in wheat and pork- Our receipts aro increase, and. thei - finer weather is promising better things for the crops, though it is now veiy late, oven' to begin plant ing corn. Benorts from Iroquois and Vermillion Counties state that there are many farms which have not yet been plowed, and in the neighbor hood of Peoria they only began plowing a. day or two ago. ‘ r. . >*' ~ . : , / In the dry goods market there were no changes deserving special mention, and while prices are generally well sustained, the prevalent feeling: ia not particularly. buoyant. The demand for groceries was reported fair, interior merchants as well as local retailers ordering with' consider able freedom; The changes in values were few, being confined to a advance in Mocha, Sing apore, and common Bio coffees, and a slight re duction in N. O. and common molasses, _and in German 'mottled * soap. ' Coffees were, strong. Sugars * were active and firm. The butter market ’ was more 1 active both on local and shipping account, and the quoted prices were generally, adhered to. .Choice dairy packed sold at 25@28c, while common to good - grades were moving atT2@23cJ Bagging was quiet and steady, at 370 for stock; at S5Xc for Ludlow, and' at 84X° -for Lewiston. No new features were noted: in connection . with, the cheese, canned goods, and dried iruit markets, a moderate movement being witnessed at sob* stantially yesterday’s quotations: 1 Fish met with a good demand, and were firm all round. Hay was in better request, and prairie ruled firmer. .In addition to a good local inquiry, considerable , purchases were made for shipment to the Lake Superior and lumber countries, and full prices were being realized. The hide market was' de moralized. -So small is the demand that, light as have been the receipts during the‘past half dozen days, stocks have been further ed, and in isolated cases there were no transac tions to-day at over 9c for heavy,' and. 10c.: for light. Prices of leather, pig iron, paints, and oils were comparatively steady, as previously quoted. ’ . - Trade at the lumber yards continues satis fac torily active, the demand being chiefly for, the common grades. .Prices are .without essential, change.. The arrivals by like ware‘light : ’this morning, and consequently trade at the docks, ruled quiet. Metals and Unnera’stqdt were in moderate request, and steady; Nails were un changed. the demand is only fair at $3.25@3.87X. rates. The demand for building materials con tinues light. There were no new in connection with the wool market.. Old wool is meeting with a moderate inquiry, from Western manufacturers, bat aside from this there is very,little doing.. Broom corn con tinues in fair request, the movement being prin cipally in tho better qualities. Seeds were quiet; prime timothy was held at $4.10; Hungarian and millet were in moderate request.' Green r fruits were fairly active j. and..firm, excepting cranberries, which are rather slow.. Poultry was .more plenty, and a trifle lower. Eggs. were alsp easier, being in large supply. Highwiues wore less active, but firm at tho asking quotations of yesterday, with very few offerings, which was the reason why inore were not sold. New York was firm. Sales’wore reported of 150 brls at 90c,. and 150 brls at per gallon, and the market was quoted os closing firm, with bid, and 90c asked. . Lake freights were very quiet, but stronger jto Buffalo, carriers insisting on Xc advance tq that port, while lower port rates wero unchahged. We quote corn to Buffalo at Cc ; wheat to ; do at wheat to do at 13c. A total of 4 charters was re ported, which will carryout 16.000 bu wheat; 60.000 bu com; and 20,000 hu oats. Several ves sels now here have been ordered to go for iron ore, for whichJitea are obtained which are claim ed to be equal to So to Buffalo for. com. Through rates on corn to. Boston ore 2Cc. Provisions wore quiet but firm, though hogs were again somewhat lower. The strength was principally in mess.pork, which advanced 20c per hrl,. owing to the fact that a prominent operator was in the market trying,, to fill an order for one or two lots, and. holders advanced their quotations accordingly. Lord was firm { in sympathy with pork, hut closed a shade easier.

New York was quoted quiet and firm. - The prin cipal feature of our market was the fact that offerings were very light, especially of pash lots, which is probably because there is comparative ly little hero to be, offered: our stocks have been very much depleted ■by liberal shipments against light- receipts. As nearly as we can figure it out there are now only about 315,000 bu No. 3 spring in store in this city. The shipping movement has been a very largo one during the past two weeks, thongh so quiet that it has been difficult to trace it, as the buying has all been done as nearly .cub rosa as possible, and many of the charters unre ported till the clearances were taken out. One operator alone has shipped out not less than 768,000 bu this month, of which a little more .than halt has gone to New York, and ,the rest to. Canada. The quietness, which characterized the’ market to-day may possibly be an indication that the bulk of these orders have been filled. But the fact of the movement must have been known to those who hold the bulk of the wheat here, and that suffi ciently accounts for th# relative strength of cash wheat during two weeks past, even without the large shortage on May deliveries previous to the Watson failure. The market was strong to day, but it is probable that the - firmer tone in lake freights caused shippers to hold back, espe cially as there are rumors that ocean freight-room is scarce.'nearly all that is available having been 1 charteredfor five weeks ahead."

A very important eetimate of tliecondition and Erospeotapf the growing grain crops in. England as been published by Mr. Thomas G. Scott, a grain statistician of established reputatipm He estimates that there will be a groater next harvest than last, and that England will be compelled to import zhore than,half her entire food supplies.. •In the drat place, he estimates that half , a million acres,, or less land, 1 has been placed undorwheat cultivation this year than last, and that the yield of the land j ac* tnally planted will bo deficient both in quantity and quality. The weather has' been uniformly •bad both for winter and' spring wheat, and even •under the most favorable* conditions of dieat and moisture daring the balance of the season on average proportionate yield cannot be looked for.' There wul not only bo a deficiency from reduced area, but also from tbo aggregate yield per acre. Barley, the next most important English grain crop after wheat, will also be deficient, both in quality and and from thb : same causes that effect the.wneat crop. Oats will probably be in better supply, as that is a hardy, plant,-and survives influences which aro apt to prove fatal to other cereals. Grass; and forage crops, as they are called, also look very unfavorable, a fact which augurs badly for. the supply of food* for and Jot the* future' price of butchers* moat. It is also apparent,By a'comparisoh, with ' the production of former years,' that lh'6 vtfieat lands of England are yielding loss per acrh'thau foimerly, probably from the some causes which produce such constant changes in the wheat bolt m the Unitedi States. • The estimates of 'Mr. Scott are invested with greater importance, from' the surprising accu racy of his former anticipations, showing that his conclusions are -based -on -evidence of the most reliable character.- The following • comparative table of the food, imports of Great Britain illustrates tho decreased ■ productive capacities of that country: .

The present very unfavorable prospects of the com-- mg harvest afford no hopes of a reduction next year as the decrease in the average ’ production per acxo willgo.farto counterbalance a favor able harvest m 18741' Until August next year -England must necessarily b'e a heavy buyer or food supplies, and is likely to absorb tho surplus •production ,01 the whole worlds This condition of affairs can hardly fail to ex erfiso an important influence on tho social and political future-of Great Britain. “-The' absolute dependence of more than half the entire popula tion bn foreighbountries for food can hardly fail to be attended by marked results. 1 ‘ The conse quences of a falling off in the production of*one or more of tho great grain countries would be

most serious: Last year’s immense grain Crop hi California was a most .‘fortunate . event * fop • England in.view of 'the'., partial failure" of the Bossian ’ harvest, ‘and - went far to prevent a , heavy .advance in * prices in : English markets. "But the fact of. a probably ..perr mauent. annual demand ‘ ‘ for . 6400,000 of food' in such v a market* aa Great . Britain will tend-to stimulate production In other countries. This fact will afford another striking evidence of the invaluable and beneficial, opera tion of the laws of trade when hot interfered with by arbitrary or outside influence.’ No gov ernment in " the world—not even that: of Eng land, wealthy and powerful though it be—could fidcceaafullT ‘ accomplish tho' great work ■of supplying • nearly twenty, millions’ of population with all heedful } food.

Kotwith— stanoihg the enormous food England, resulting from the failure hf several successive harvests, the prices of breads tuffs bft.vft.not only not advanced, but are much cheap er - than when the home production was more in proportion to the requirements for consump tion. England has always something to". eo> change for food.' which it is to advantage of the food producers to obtain, and thus the process of exchange’ goes oh with "never-failing regularity.

Last week..., CATTLE—In this d. japartmeni. _ _ .*,sde the past w««w has developed no points of interest worthy of extended comment. Fair activity has characterized the demand from the opening to the dose, so that, while the re* ceipta'hava shown a daily average.of nearly 4,000 head, the supply has not been , so'largely excessive ad ,to cause any very pronounced depredation in any class of stock, while, with the exception of diet and second*, daas steers, such as New- York, Albany, and Bostbn buyers seek, there has . been no decline. On the contrary, butchers' stud —by which, is un derstood common to choice cows, heifers; stags, oxen, and common to fair light-weight steers-^has steadily sold at better prices ' than -prevailed last week, the advance in many instances amounting to a The unusual state of things was not due to any falling off in the demand forth* former, or to any increase in the demand for the latter, but was wholly attributable to r the superior average quality of the stock offered for Bale. The proportion of cows, and medium steers of from 1,000 to 1400 lbs i average, was noticeably small. the hoik of the week’s i supply consisting of good to choice smooth well-fatted steers of from 1,150 to *1,400 lbs average, for which the prevailing prices were $5.12>*@5,75.. A few especially- i desirable , lota were, disposed of, ,at - higher ! figures, $6.0006.12)4’ being -paid, ' but sales at over $5.75 were rare,-while the balk of the week’s business was transacted at prices ranging -downward from $5.60. Afthc Boat prices have ruled from an .to a %c higher than last week, but the large number of cattle forwarded from here during -the past ten days, it is feared, will cause a eharp reaction there, and in view of' this- contingency ! shippers “have ‘ conducted their operations with more, than - usual caution; and choice beeves of from 1,200 to 1,500 lbs average have only been salable at 15®25c reduction from mat week’s 1 closing rates.
