6 MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY. Saturday Evkntno, May 24. There boa boon a gradual progress toward ease In tbo local money market daring tbo past week. Borne of tbo banks that bavo a largo lino of mercantile accounts bavo experienced an extremely -active demand for money, but, H has boon mainly from merchants whoso capital is small l in comparison to their business and who. are consequently al ways hard-up. Aside from this tboro has been scarcely as much demand for money at ■omo of the banks as they would like, and in »6mo quarters mouoy is offered freely on collat erals at 10 per cent, and on call oven at 8 per cent. Tbo business In local stocks has boon un usually small for tbo last two weeks. In oases whero parties bavo boon obliged to port with city railway, which pays 20 per cent, and eomo of the bank stocks wblob pay from 12 to 15 per cent, fair prices bavo been ob tained, but, on tho whole, there was bat little done.

Legal-tenders outstanding. $66,365,000; a decrease since last Saturday of $146,000. Foreign exchange was lower, with actual business at -108# to 108# for prime banker’s CO days, and 109# to 109# for sight. Customs receipts, $314,207. Gold waa active, with a further advance.

Tho back statement is unfavorable, and shows a net loss of $890,800 In tho legal reserve. The statement waa a general disappointment to tho street. Tho honks as a whole now have $4,070,416 above the 05 por . cent required by law. Tho percentage of reserve to ' the total liabllltcs Is 27.03 for the National banks, 34,46 for the Stale banks, and 20.72 for tho banka in the aggregate. . Gold clearances, $135,709,000. The Assistant Treasurer paid out to-day SIOO,OOO, The Treasury operations for tho week at the New - York office included the disbursement of $924,000 gold for Interest, and $18,700 in tho redemption of C- 1 20 bonds, and tbo receipt of $2,300,312 for customs. The • Treasury also sold $1,000,000 gold, and bought $600,000 bonds. Part of tho gold was paid for in legal tender notes, which probably explains tho decrease In tho bank statement. Government bonds closed strong at tho highest quo tations of the week. The dullness which characterized the stock specula ' ilon during the week was more marked to-day.

Tho volume of business in tool estate baa been smaller during tho past week than tho previous one, and it is probable that as far as largo trans actions in acres'and in suburban lands generally are concerned, the heaviest business is over. The advent of pleasanter weather, and probably also tho drawing of a large number of strangers here to the Jubilee on tho sth of next mouth, will help to revive speculation and investment to some extent. But for tho rest of the summer the sale of property will consist more largely of transactions in small lots for actual occupation by the purchasers. Tho volume of business la therefore likely to be smaller, but of a ■ moro legitimate character than during the • last throe months. As mentioned last week, the quarters whore there is tho great est activity in tho purchase of lots at from SSOO to $1,600 each are around tho 'Western limits of building improvements all tho way from tho district around Humboldt Park around to tho Btook Yards and down to Englewood. Tho latter place Is growing with wonderful rapidity, and a long, scattering hue of fifty or sixty new woodon cottages is being pushed northward between Hoi sted street and tho Book Island Ballroad, to moot another similar ono that is bolng pushed south ward from tho vicinity of tho Stock Yards. Those two lines of improvemontwill soon meet about tho Fifty-fifth street boulevard—which, by tho way, Is being Improved with a fine graveled roadway Into tho Town of Lako—so that a year hence tho lino of building improvements will bo continu ous all the way, and Englewood will seem much less remote and disconnected with tho city than now. Following tho line of the suburban trains on tho Fort Wayne and Michigan Southern Ball roads tho lino of improvements is also progress ing southeastward toward Cornell to moot thoro another lino that is following tho suburban trains of tbo Illinois Central down from Hydo Park* Between tho two linos of im provement mooting at Cornell thero is a narrow strip of property averaging nearly half a mile wide, extending from near Thirty first street south to Seventy-fifth street, and lying next west of the South Park and Boule vards, that has not improved much, because tho land is owned by capitalists Who lirvo held it lot tbo Investment. But this spring tboro ore ta xations of A BUTEHIOR CLASS OP IMTnoVEMENTfI beginning In tho whole of this district. Tho most northern portion of it lies between Thirty first and Thirty-fifth streets, and extends oast and west from Forrest avenue to Cottage Qrovo avenue. In this area not loss than fifty good brick and stone-front dwellings have boon erected within tho past year, and wo heat of as many- more of oven a bettor class to bo erected there this ! summer. Among them are tUd following for : which tho contracts have boon lot, and building will begin within a week or two : Nino brown etono octagon fronts, each twtf stories and basement, on tho northeast comer of llhodos avenue and Thirfcv-third street. Three marble fronts on Thirty-third street' (north front), cast of Cottage Grove'avenue. Two marble fronts on Vernon avenue (for merly Colfax avenue), nt Thirty-fourth street. Two marble fronts on BouthPnrkjivonue, fifty foot south of Thirty-second street. Two marble fronts on Calumet avenue, just south of Thirty-second street. Four two-story and basement bricks on For-- rost avenue, just north of Thirty-second street. Besides tho above, a number of, single houses' of tho same, or oven a bettor class, will bo in process of erection in tbo same vicinity this summer. Thirty-first street has' boon ordered paved from State street to Cottage Grove, and bids fair to become a business street, which will divide the neighborhood in question from the one north of it. ■ Further eoutb, Mr. H. E. Pickett has made arrangemonte for building twonty-two handsome stone-front dwellings on Prairie avenue, north of Thirty-ninth street. On the Grand Boulevard Messrs. Allen A Bart lett (buildoru) have bought 75 foot oast front lust eouth of Forly-aocond atroot, at 9200 nor front foot, and are to build tbore throe very uuo brown stone fronts to cost over 920,000 each. On Michigan avenue, 125 foot south of Fortieth street, Mr. W. 11. Doroy has sold a lot on the west side of tho street at 9185 per front foot, on which tho purchasers are under contract to build this summer. OK Tim NORTH BIDE the activity in sales of lots and in improve ments is confined to the “ burnt district,” and north of that is nearly all west of Clark atroot.. The decision of the Court on Friday in favor of the Lincoln Park assessments does not bv any moons settle tho question. The par ties who aro contesting this assessment are firmly convinced that tho assessment is not only illegal, but that there is “ a ring ” in it. How much foundation there may bo for this we do not presume to say, but it is at least apparent that tho opponents of tho scheme moan to fight it out on that lino, and will carry the case up to tho Supremo Court. THE OHIO AGO LAND COMPANY aro soiling a groat many lota in tholr now subdi vision just south of tho Northwestern car-shops, and thoro will bo a groat deal of improvement in that direction this spring independent of what tho Northwestern Railroad Company and tho Xiand Oompany.wlll do on thoir own account. THE WILMINGTON A IiACON BATLBOAD COMPANY whoso lino was mentioned a few weeks Ago as a possible connoctiug ono with a proposed lino through the centre of tbo Town of Cicero to tho 0., B. & Q. R. R. at tho junction of Twelfth and Rockwell streets, have, wo understand, mado proposals to tho Chicago Land Company lor a right-of-way directly north from about tho lino of Jackson street through tho coutro of tho south half of Sec. 10, and part of Beo. 15. to a junction with tbo Northwestern Railroad at the now oar shops. IMPROVEMENTS ON MILWAUKEE AVENUE. Tho paving of Milwaukee avenue, from Divis ion street to North avonuo, so long contemplat ed, will bo commenced about June 1, and com pleted by tbo Ist of August. As tbo paving pro- Sroßsoa, tho horse railroad company will lay own a donhlo track lino, and will run their cars to North avonuo. CENTRAL BUSINESS PROPERTY is not very easy to dispose of just at present. It is apparent to everybody that for tho immediate wants of irado, there la more than enough fine stores, and there is no inducement to build more just now, except in tho most cen tral. locations. It is plain that State street from Randolph to that magnificent piece of architecture, tho Palmer House, is to bo tho retail street par excellence of Chicago. But tho location of the Palmer House iu connection with, those of the Matteson and tho Gardner is likely' to tarn tho lino ol firet-claae retail buelnoes Into Wabash avenue, south of Monroe street ; and from there to Harrison street, the fine class of improvement already made on Wabash avonuo insures Its being tho next most desirable quar ter to tho port of State street above mentioned, for first-class retail trade. Messrs. Fhlnuoy & Lombard sold,' a few days since, a lot 20% feet front by 171 foot deep, on Michigan avonuo. noar Madison street, at $1,237.50 per front loot. Tho total price was $83,000, of which $2,000 was paid in cash and $13,000 in Calumet River property, leaving SIB,OOO to ho adjusted iusome other way. The above parties have also sold ton acres lying directly wostof Lombard A Sawyer’s Doug las Park Addition, between Ogden avonuo and Twenty-second strpot, just west of Douglas Park, for $28,000. ACRES. Among many other solos by tho aero, aro tho following recent ones: Eighty acres—sold by Messrs. Snyder & Lee in the N. W, # °* Sec. 6» Town of. Cicero, being ono milo northeast of Harlem Station, at SI,OOO nor acre. This price is above tho cash value, but It is understood that the consideration is largely in other property. Wo hear also of the sale of 20 acres in tho N. W. )£of See. 24, SO, 12. situated milo south of Haas' Park; consideration, SOOO nor aero. Tho purchaser sold this property before ho had his contract for $750 per acre. H. E. Picket bought of James E. Tyler 20 acres on tho north side of Harrison street, mile west of tho city limits; consideration, $2,600 per aero. L. Hodges sold 80 acres, being in B.of See. 'l2, 41,12, situated about %of a milo from Park Bidgo; consideration, S2OO per acre. A OUIUODS INCIDENT of tho unexpected acquirement of money by tho rise in value of real estate in this city transpired this week. At the time It. K. Swift,»tho banker, failed hero in 1858, an Irish laborer had SBOO in .thebank. Ho could get nothing olso for his' money than a deed from Mr. Swift for 20 acres of land several miles southwest of Brighton. It was not salable at any price, but thoman thought It was hotter than nothing. So ho kept it and Eaid taxes on it from year to year. Lately ho ad begun to think it would sell for something, ho did not know what. A few weeks ago lie placed it for sale in tho hands of Mr. W. D. Kor foot, who astonished him. and almost took his breath away by informing him, last Thurs day, that ho had*sold it for SB,OOO, The following Is tbe total amount of city and sub urban property transferred during tbe week ending Saturday, Alay 24 : City property.

Cattle, No A good many people arc asking why more wheat la now going to Milwaukee than coming to Chicago, for some time past. Tbo reason is simple, but sufficient. The roads which carry grain to Milwaukee take It at a reduced rate from all points which are also connected with Chicago; so that, in most cases, tho cost of shipping and selling in Milwaukee is loss than tho simple oost'of shipment to this city. Those who know this foot ask tho question, l{ Cannot tho grain bo carried to Chicago at prices, that will pay to deliver It in Milwaukee Tho physical answer to this question is “Yea?" but there is an impediment in tho writ that has thus far operated as a moral impossibility. This, how ever, is only ono of several cases in which Chi cago is discriminated against by tbo railroads. A committee was appointed by tho- Board of Trado, some time ago, to investigate and re port in regard to tboso things, but no good has yet come of it. It is understood that an effort is being fnado to collect tho fees for tho inspection of grain through tho railroad companies, instead of through warehouses, tho latter being tbo more general way now. Tho difference between tho two plans is simply that tho railroad oollootion will secure tbo funds when tho service is per formed : while tho warehouse oollootion la not made till the grain is taken oufeof store. . • THE MARKETS. , There was n little more lifo in tho produce markets to-day, and a firmer tono all round, though twenty-four hours had elapsed without a storm. The business was, however, chiefly speculative, cash lots of produce not being' mentioned some times for a quarter of an hour together. Tho shipping movement was slow; but it is usually so on Saturday. The mass of operators did not soora to build much upon a continuance of fino weather. TUo inquiry for white and colored staple cot tons, and for seasonable dross goods. vraa_allglit ly more active than on previous days of tho week, but aside from ibis tbo movement was sluggish, and in most departments there was an apparent lack of firmness. Groceries were gen erally quiet, and, if wo except coffees, syrups, and spices, the quoted prices were only indiffer ently sustained. There was fair activity in tho butter market, and tho prices current earlier in the week wore uniformly well sustained. 'Within the past few days there has boon noticeable improvement in tho quality of tho offerings, a liberal proportion of that now coming forward being grass batter of good flavor, and yellow. Sales wore chiefly at 18@25c, though small lots of strictly choice at 20@270 was obtainable. Bagging remains quiet at 2Q%0 for Stark, 850 for Ludlow, 84>£o for Lewiston, and 82o* for American. • No now features woro developed la connection with tho choose, canned goods, and dried fruit markets, trade ruling dull at tho prices current yesterday. Fish continuoa’aclivo ami firm. Most descriptions are in light stock, and tho tendency in cod and fat mackerel is slightly in an upward*direction. Tbo bay market was in much the same condition’ ns noted in previous reports, pressed descrip tions mooting' with a good demand at firm prices. As farmers are now busy with their’ planting, there is only a moderate amount com ing, in, and dealers predict continued high prices. Tbo bide trade was dull, neither local nor outside tanners seeming inclined to operate to any largo extent, bub . the moderate stocks in storo and tbo continued light receipts stimulate holders, ■ and prices were fully maintained. Pip-iron was quoted dull and easier. Tobacco, paints, and paper stock sold at about former quotations. Tho oil mar ket was reasonably active, with prices un changed: Carbon at linseed at SI.OO @1.02, extra lard at 75c, wnalo at 870, and turpentine at 57@G80. Linseed is ntrong, with an advancing tendency. Lord oil is weak. Tho lumber trade continues active and tho market firm, especially for cargoes afloat. Met als, tinners’ stock, ana iron were in moderate re quest ; there was no quotable change in prices. The demand for building materials is improving somewhat under tbo influence of fine weather. Prices ore without” material change, though rather easy for common brick and lime. Thoro woro no now features to nolo in connection with tho wool market. Tho Western mills are buying old wool in small quantities, and tho stocks aro quite low, Tho now clip has hardly commenced to come forward. It is thought that prices will bo from B@6o lower than the present rates for old wool. Hops and broom com are without perceptible change: tho former ore quiet, while broom com is meeting with the usual demand, tho good grades being scarce and firm. There was very little doing in seeds, excepting Hunga rian and millet, which wore in moderate request at reduced prices. Poultry was in liberal supply but slow of sale, and prices ruled’weak and lower. Eggs woro oetlvo at closing quite firm. Green fruits, vegetables, and potatoes woro without particular change. Lake freights were dull, but nominally firm at tbo advanced quotations of Friday, both carriers and shippers holding off.' Several vessels ar rived in port last evening and this morning, but shippers wore indisposed to take hold till tho vessels ore ready to load, as tbo foot might work to their disadvantage. Carriers asked Co for com, and 7c for wheat, by sail, to Buffalo, and and for coni and wheat to Oswego or Kingston. Through freights to Boston, by lake and sail, quoted at 250 via Buffalo, and 2Co via Ogdonsburgb. Only one vessel was chartered to carry grain from this port, at $1,200 for tbo cargo of corn and oats; amount not slated. Highwines wore quiet, bat strong, at ad vance: 010 was bid, and 01>£o asked; Bales wero limited to ouo lot, which was differently re ported to bo 50 or 100 brls at 010 per gallon. Provisions wero znoro active and stronger, the recent severe drop having brought out • several speculative buyers, who thought it safe to take hold at tbo decline; added to which, bogs woro less plenty and higher, while other markets woro firmer than heretofore. Moss pork advanced . 360 per brl from tho reduced quotations of. last evening, and closed a shade easier. Lard was 200 per 100 lbs higher, being in’ good demand, but quiet, as buyers wore not generally prepared to meet tbo views of holders. Heats wero in somo demand for tiio Southern trade at tbo recent reduction in terms. The market closed at the following range of prices: Moss pork, cash or seller May, $15.00; do seller June, $15.00@15.G5; do seller July, SIG.OO@IO.IO ; do seller August, SIG.2G@ 10.80; lard, cash or seller May, $8.00; do seller Juno, $8.00@8.05; do seller July, $8.90(5)8.95; summer lard, $7.87K@8.00; do without package, $7.50.

At the annual meeting of tho Chicago Lum bermen’s Exchange, hold in March last, tho rules of inspoctioh for lumborsold by cargo were changed so as to bo identical with tho grades piled up by the loading yard firms of this city. A “ school of practice ” was established, with ! lumber taken from the plica of one of tho lead ing yards of the city ; but tho near approach of ' the opening of navigation, and tho stormy weather, did not give sufficient time for the examination of all tho Inspectors (about 100) in tho city; but some twenty or more qualified themselves and obtained ! certificates. Tins is tho beginning of a syste matic and uniform mode of transacting tho im ! mouse lumber business of this city, and it is < hoped by tho trade that tho plan may bo in gen eral practice noxt season. By reference to our quotations, it will bo soon that a cargo of mill [ run lumber was sold under the now rules on ; Saturday, being, wo believe, the first green mill mn stock soul in this manner this season, \ although several sales of dears have boon made . on that basis.

Last week, Week before lust • •..•18,’538 61',043 243 CATTLE—Nothing bos occurred In this department of tbo live stock market since our last weakly review worthy of special mention. Steadily fair activity bos characterized the demand both from local and outside buyers, and the supply, though (Including the stale cattle left over from the previous week) amounting to acme 19.000 head, has readily been absorbed, and at very full prices. With the exception ot New "i’ork, which has ruled a Jtfo lower, tbo Eastern markets have not boon subjected to any material fluctuation in prices, and shippers have kept tho yards well cleared of suitable lots at $4.7503.16 for common to medium grades of from' 1,030 to 1,250 lbs average, and at $5.2500.00 for good to extra steers of from 1,150 to 1,600 lbs average. A few extra fetched $0.12J4®8.25, and In iwoortbreo Instances oven higher figures wore paid, hut tho number of transfers at over $3.80 comparatively was small.

Tho scarcity >of tho descriptions of stock usually sought after by tho city trade, noted lost week, is still a feature of tho market, and prices of such continue to rule disproportionately high in con sequence. Hut tho season is near at hand when tho supply of butchers' cattlo may bo expected to exliibit a largo Increase, and a marked reduction from tbo relatively high prices now preva lent must inevitably follow. Stock .steers, also, aro scarce, but tboro la not at present an active demand, and tho market Is more lu buyers' favor. Tho supply of new milch cows Is fair, at about former rates, sales making at $25.00045,00 per head far poor to choice, with occasionally a buyer at a higher figure for something especially desirable.
