" I , For some.time, past. there have been intima tions that < preparations wore being mado by .a bllqdo in Now York for a speculative riso in tho firied of gold similar to the ono that culminated n Black Friday of I860,! and it is not at all improbable . that somo attempt of tho hind' may *be * mado “ nbxt month, _ . The _ experience „of ,all ~ thoso atiompt'e, however, Is tho same. Their offoot is transient, and practically it is j confined to a fow of tho epooulatora.i During Black Friday, when gold* was quoted at 162 in the gold -room, it is a well known fact that cosh gold was sold in tho streets of Now York, in tho small amounts required for actual use,- at 186, which had been tub ruling price for several months. . When we have a dor ■ nor in wheat or oom in this market,'it is always, for somo special kind of delivory.WfluMly-“ seller tbo month.” Boring tho coniinuanco of ;the comer, wheat that is wanted for actual'use 1 at oboe' soils at tho somo prico as If there was no corner. Tt is plalh, therefore, that there is 1 no ebango in the value of wheat In consequence of tho eomor. - It is Bimply-a contest between cer tain speculators as to who can pat up tho most f monoy in margins. Tho laws of supply and do ;; mand for legltmiato purpoaoa -fix the prices of r things,.and thoso prices aro .disturbed very lit- Ho.by any' artificial manipulations. Gold Is a commodity that is moro widely distributed than any other, and can bo moved from ono country to another moro easily and at a • dost loss pro portionate to its value than any othor. with ' tho exception of. • tho cost of transporta tion, its valuo. is uniform throughout , tho.world, and whenever any -cause operates to increase its value in ono place above another to a dogroo that leaves a profit on its transporta tion, it qulokly flows to that place, and adjusts tho difference. - KOUOO thoro can bo no porma ment or great difference in tho valuo of gold in ..different places orconntrios, and *it is therefore ' impossible for any manipulation or speculation * to cause any but a very temporary change in tho valuo of gold, unless it could affoot tho value of - all the gold in tho.world alike, a thing altogether - improbable. . COMWJMKMTB TOOK THB BT, LOUIS PRESS. ‘ We aro at a loss to understand what kina of 'an estimate tho newspaper writers of St. Louis can put upon tho average intelligence of their readers and of tho commordiaU world at largo. While they continue to print snob tirades against Chicago .in connection with the trade of -the two -cities; Horc ia' tho 'li6pill>licari t tiH Instance, .which wo had supposed had somo decency left, : printing a whole column of such stuff as tho following:. •• Tims,. for the last twenty years, Chicago hoi atretched oat her'lron arms Into 471x000810, MlnOe •: sots, and lowa, like thb Devil-Ash in tho Tollers of tho “■' Sea. literally tucking tho Ufo-blood from three or four . tnlHlona of producers.

Theiridea seems to be.thattho function of journalism is to nuarepresent facts, to exaggerate cirounistanceß, and, when there Is no pretext for misrepresen tation, to make a lie out of whole cloth, A 'sam- Ele of the misrepresentation of facts by the Bt. lonia newspapers; is their persist<moo in 'mis wpresentihg the bank oloanngs of that city by adding' the debits to tho credits, thus maxing ' too total appeor'juat double what it ought ..to "be, and "'then claiming that 'tbe’bank'cloarihgs of St. Louis -equal those of Chicago, whereas, the reported clearings in.this city, are reports of nothing but credits to the banks.- If the —-bank clearings report of Chicago ’was made up in the sanm manner it is in Bt.

Cannot tho men who misrep resent tho state of the market boo that they aro doing their Worst to drive away trade by weaken ing confidence in tho Integrity of thoso who do business hero ? k petition is how being circulated for signa tures through tho Northwest, asking for tho au thorization or establishment of a double-track steel railroad, for carrying freight exclusively between this city and Now York. Tho advan tages which such a rood would secure, if prop erly managed, aro so many and so patent that ihO document will undoubtedly eoouro very many signatures. Tbo only difficulty in tho way is that Congressional aid for a really valuable measure can scarcely bo secured without drag-- ging in a score or more of steals from tho Treas ury of tho nation. tnfe Markets. Tho loading produce markets wore again lower to-day, tho principal exception being wheat, which went turougu its drooping phase yester day. The flue weather and large receipts caused a drop early, and tho markets wore rather strong afterword, improving somewhat from the decline. Tho shipping, movement was very slow, owing to tho firmer tone in lake freights, which sent shippers out of tho market. . Dry goods were moving a littlo moro freely, both on local and interior acoount. Tho pleas ant weather of tho post few days has greatly stimulated tho retail trade, and in staple cottons and seasonable fabrics a fair aggregate of sales was accomplished. Groceries were again quoted dull, though, in comparison with tho preceding half-dozen days, the distribution of staple and side goods, showed a respectable increase. Values wore not subjected to any quota ble change. Batter was in moder ately active demand, not only to supply local wants, bat forshlpmoat, andformorquota tions wero sustained, sales being reported at 10 @l9o for poor to good, and at 20@210 for choice. No change worthy of mention occurred in the choose, canned goods, and dried fruits markets, business continuing slack, with prices in buyers’ favor. Fish wore fairly active and firm. Hay was weak. The demand has fallen off some recently, and stocks > are beginning to "accumulate. In me bide and leather markets a fair amount of sales was accomplished at about former quotations. * Thoro was a liberal move ment in oils, paints, and colors, at very full prices. Pig-iron, paper, stock,, tobacco, and wood wore quoted unchanged. The trade at the lumber-yards continues satis factorily active, and prices are without material change. Tho wholesale market was quiet to day, though sovorul cargoes woro sold early. Fair to good boards, strips, and lath are un changed. Thomotal and iron trade is quiet; the market for the former is without particular change, but common fair iron is weak and un settled. NaOs moot with a fair inquiry, and are steady at present rates. Tho demand for build ing materials is improving, and common brick is quito active at $7.00 per m. Wool remains quiot and without quotable change. Tho dealers re port a fair trado in broom-corn, and a firm mar ket for the hotter grades. Beads woro quiet and unchanged. Tho inquiry for poultry was , fair, and turkeys were higher, owing to scarcity. The trade in green fraits is good, apples alone being slow. Eggs woro active and steady, at 13>£@ lie. Highwines were quiot and firm attbo quota* tloiiß of yesterday. Buyers bid 000 ratbor freely: but sailors bold off for 00>£@91o, seeing that Now York was quoted higher. Sales woro cou llned to 60 brla at 000 por gallon. Bake freights wore quiot and stronger. Car* rlers Insisted on %o advance, which shippers would not pay till near the close, and then {took hold rather freely, taking 0 vessels, which will' carry out 10,000 bu wheat, 180,000 bu coin, 60,000 bu oats, and 16,000 bu barley.- Sail rates'woro quoted at ou corn, and C@oVq on wheat to Buffalo, and 120 for wheat to Kings ton. Corn was taken on through rato to Bos* ton at 200. Provisions woro dull. Mobs pork was about 100 per brl lower, though not offered to any groat extent, tbo cause of tho decline being a wealton lug in tho price of live hogs, duo to larger re* ceipta. Lard was unchanged. Moats wore inac tive, but generally, quoted a shade stronger, being hold off the market, whilo it is behoved that there are very few old paeats horo that havo not been sold forehlpmont. Summer cured pro ducts have boon in good supply recently, but there is little offered now, and still loss wanted. Tho market closed at tho following range of prices t Moss pork, cash or seller Juno, $16.66 @16.00; do seller July, g16.00@16.05 ; do seller August, $10.00@10.10; lard, cash or Boiler Juno, g8.50@8.65; do Boiler July, $8.76@8.80; do seller August, gO.OO; summer do, gB.OO.

Tho Now York Produce Exchange Weekly has the following j “ Tholotding countries of Europe seem to have generally small supplies of wheat. There has been more demand In the.British mar* ket for wheat for tho Continent, all of which does not show in the exports, as cargoes arriving at ports of call are purchased and token to the Continent, which wore originally intended for the markets of the United Kingdom. The quan tity of .wheat on passage is' now estimated at about 1,250,000 qrs, which will not all arrive at des tination until throe or four months later in tho season. Tho supply from imports since Sept 1, 1872, has boon about 1,200,000 qrs per month, and, with this largo supply, the stocks in grana ries have been largely diminished. .The Conti nental countries are taking a goodly number of tho cargoes originally intended for tho United Kingdom. Marseilles is taking considerable wheat, although not os much as last year. Eng land has in prospect for the next four months about 800,000 qrs per month, against 1,200,000 qrs for the last sovon months. " The movement from American Atlantloporta will givo present relief, as during tho last four weeks 1,327,093 hu have boon oleared, against 440,675 bu tho previous four weeks, and tho amount will ho augmented as Boon os free arriv als through tho Now York canals shall occur. It is evident that tho supplies from tho Ist of May to tho Ist of September will not bo over about ono-half what they woro last year from tho prin cipal wheat-exporting countries .of Europe, California shipments are already falling off, and ono-thlrd of tho surplus of Australia is already on passage. *• Tho question of supply from tbo English homo crop is yot to bo determined. Tho homo deliveries are increasing, although still below tho average of tho last ton years. If It should turn out that tho homo crop will provide a million quarters more than has boon estimated, that would to a limited extent aid In making up tho deficiency. The situation is not favorable for a very much, if any, lower rang© of prioos perma nently. “ In Prance there was a heavy rain-fall during tho second week lu May which had benefited tho wheat plant that had been previously kopt'baok-’ ward by the drouth. Tho April frosts had damaged tho rye plant, which had'already suf fered from the heavy winter rains. “At Nantes, tho weather continued favorable for tho growing crops, Trade was .cheeked by tho high prices demanded for wheat. “In Vienna, Austria,- wheat'was firm.

The market is now clear of lumber, though trading .has been rather slow, as buyers would hold off as long as possible in hopes to obtain concessions. Good to choice strips ana boards have ruled active and steady throughout the week at $14.00® 17.00 per m. ' Good lath have remained steady at $2.60; shingles at $3.00. . Piece stuff has declined; It is now quotable at $9.25@10.00, though nothing has been reported below SIO.OO. A cargo of good piece stuff was acid yesterday at $9.25. There was a fair inquiry this morning, and about 10 or 12 cargoes wore disposed of before 9 o’clock. ■ Not a sale was reported however, and, in the absence of quotations, It la probably safe to infer that price* -for some grades oro fully as low as on yesterday.
