MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY, Saturday Evening, Juno T, The local monoy market, lllco that of Now York, has shown on increasing supply of funds throughout tho week. Tho banks, of oourso, maintain their rato of discount at lOpdrcont, but mauy of thorn are uuablo to llud employ ment for all their spare funds at that rate, and in some Instances aro offering monoy on call at 8 per cent. Borne oro moving their surplus of unemployed monoy to Now York, where they got 4 por cent on current balances. Frhno commercial paper sells in tho street,readily, at 10 per cent, and accommodation paper made by speculators who aro financially good, but who oro not regularly settled In any mercantile business, soils at 12 to 15 per oont. Heal oslnto paper also, secured by mortgages, and having six mouths or a year to run, soils at 12 to 15 por cent. There is considerable movement of curronoy to tho country, and particularly to tho wheat re gions of the Northwest, indicating tho probabil ity of increasing receipts of that grain. It would soora that the increasing abundance of money would stimulate tbo demand for our local stocks: banks, horso-rallways, oto., etc., which nearly all pay from 15 to 20 por cent per annum, but tho groat bulk of tho monoy in the market at present soome to bo offered for short investments. . ..

New York, Juno 7.—Money was easy to-day at 7 to 3 por cent on call, and closed at 3 to 4 per cout. Exchange was steady, with very little business, as uauoPou tiaturdnys. Gold was weaker on the bank statement, and de clined from 118 to 117*, and thou advanced to 118*. The rates paid for carrying were 4, 3,4*, and 2 per cent. Clearances, $54,073,000. The Assistant Treas urer paid out In interest and In redemption of 6-20 bonds, $381,000. Customs receipts, $204,000. Governments opened steady, and were linn at the close.

Tbo steamers are put iu without any valuation, but an appraisement by experts is promised at an early day. Tbo interest in stock speculation to-day centred chiefly in Pacific Mall and Oblos, and tho changes In tho remainder of tbo list were generally in sympathy with tbe vibrations In these shares. The bank state ment imparted a firmer tone to tbe market for a time; but at the close there was a weak feeling, and, as a rule, prices were down to the lowest point of tbe day. Pacific Mn|| declined from 89 to 38*. rose to to*, and finally sold at 30*040. Ohio receded from BO* to 38*, rallied to 88*, and closed at 37*, tbo lowest price of the week.

Notwithstanding thoro has boon some decrease in tUo volume of recorded tranafera during the paat week or two, wo believe there is more activ ity in tho real oalato’business than there was ft mouth ago, Tho volume of transfers recorded is In fact only an Index of tho condition of tho market a month previous, as it takes about that long to examine abstracts and comploto tho papers. Ono thing, howovor, Is quite certain, viz.: That confidence in tho continued growth in population, and tho consequent continued in crease in tho value of roal estate in and around this city, was never firmer than it is now. In dependent of Jubilees, or anything of tho sort, tho summer always brings us a great many capitalists from tho South who pass a portion of tholr summer holidays hero and invariably mako a great number of im portant purchases before they leave. As several magnificent now hotels aro now open, Chicago will be able to offer inducements to those visi tors to prolong their stay. Tho attractions also which this city will now afford in tho way of fino drives around tho parks aud boulevards will un doubtedly exorcise an influence in keeping stran gers hero longer than in any previous summer, and before fall will show tholr effect in increas ing tho volume of real ostatabusiness. AUCTION SALES. During tho past ton days there has been an endeavor to revive tho business of Bolling real estate by auction. Thus far the success has boon only moderate, mainly, wo think, duo to special circumstances In each caeo that have In terfered with that special auction, but not In any general character, unless it bo the faot that tbo managers of the solos have not succeeded in making It generally known. A solo of lota which took place this week at Olydo, a station on the 0., B, & Q. Railroad, between this city and Riverside, was moderately successful, in tbo faot ih&t a considerable proportion of tho property offered was sold at fair prices to legitimate buyers. Tho sale by Messrs. William A. Butters & Go., on Tuesday, the 8d instant, was not bo successful. The property offered embraced some valuable centrally located residence property, which had to bo withdrawn for want of satisfactory bids. A sale of lots on Humboldt Fork and tho adjoining boulevards, was hold by Messrs. 0. 0. Thayer A 00., and, though it was not sufficiently advertised, it was moderately successful, and a total of thirty-two lots, situated on Milwaukee avonuo, Humboldt boulevard, and other avenues, wore sold. Tho prices ranged from 614.60 to 629 per foot, which is considered a fair prioo, with tho exception of tho boulevard front property. . Lois fronting oast on tho boulevard 25x200 foot, sold for from 618 to $22 par foot, tonus one-third cash and balance in ono and two years with interest at 8 nor cent. Lots . fronting on Milwaukee avenue 25x125 foot, sold for from 614.50 to 629 per foot, ou same terms. A fow lots on Mood avenue 25x180 foot, sold for $14.60 per foot. great mnovsusMTs on Tine south parks and BOULEVARDS. Any ono who has driven around tho Bouth Parks and boulevards during tbo last throe weeks will bo agreeably surprised in tho change made In the appearance of everything along tho routo during that timo. At tho ontranco to tho South Park from tho Qrnud boulevard tho road ways. which a mouth ago woro narrow and rough, have boon widened and mode smooth. Tho whole north 40 aoros of tho park has boon sot with troos, walks havo Jjoou laid out through the northern end of tho park, and will soon af ford pleasant strolls for pedestrians who got off tho dummy train at Fifty-first atroot. About 80 acres of grobnsward have boon mado, partly by seeding and partly by sodding, in tho grounds bordering those walks. BAYARD AVENUE la a continuation of the Grand boulevard through tho park, but immediately ou entering tho park ohaugea its name and character, and, instead of tho arrow-like straightness of tho boulevard, becomes a winding road, tho general course of which is toward tho southeast. This will bo tho first good driving road through tho South Park. As yet It is in good drlviug condition forouly about half-o-mllo from tho outrauco to tbo park, but it is tho intention of tho Park Com missioners to oxlond it as rapidly as possible down tho eastern eldo of tho park, and through tho midway “Plaisauoo” (which French name, by tbo by, our western people aro not likely to ‘ adopt as readily as they did tho word boulevard) and theuco across tho South Shore Park to tho beach about half-a-milo south of tho Hydo Park Hotel. By Sept. 1, tho Commissioners bopo to havo tho whole of this route, and also a half-a-milo of tho South Shore Drive completed, so that it will afford good passage for tho carriages of pleasure seekers. Tho greatest Improvement, however, in all tho south parks ana boulevards, lately, will bo seen in tbo so-called “ DREXEIi” BOULEVARD, which, by the way, is la fact not its permanent name, nut only a temporary one until a better one can bo found. Here tho planting space between tho two driveways has been beautifully finished up with greensward, through which are winding walks, nordorod In some places with bods of geraniums, pinks, and other showy flowers now In bloom. More than a hundred fine forest trees have also boon sot out this spring in this planting space, and are distributed all the wayfromThirty-mnthstrootto Fifty-first street in a manner which docs much credit to the taste of Hr. L. B. Sidway, of tho Fork Commission, on whom this task devolved by common consent of tho Board. The opening of .116* 115* .117* 118 .117* 118 i .... 110* , .... 100 Alnt. .... 89*Aint. , .... 05008 to connect the Grand boulevard with “ Droxol ” boulevard is probably the greatest improvement the Park Commission have made in tuoir whole system this spring. This is now 100 foot wide, and has one good carriago-road its entire length. With the opening of this connecting link, the boulevards and pork afford a continuous drive of nearly six miles from Thirty-fifth street down Grand boulevard, through the park, up “Droxol” boulevard, and west on Oakwood boulevard to Grand boulevard again. Over the whole dis tance the roads are smooth, and on either side the baud of art has smoothed the rough coat of nature Just enough to make it ploasiug to look at. .170 189 .loQ 113 .170 187 .133 140 Much has boon said about South Chicago and its importance as an objective point, toward which the city must inevitably roach out and finally consolidate to make the lake front a continuous line of improvements from tho mouth of Chicago River to the mouth of Calumot River, and yet, notwithstanding all that has been said, wo hardly think that our own citizens fully appreciate tho foot that tho Calumot har bor must soon take a portion of tho increasing transportation business that is here transferred from railroads to vessels on tho lakes, and vice versa. Manufacturers are. however, beginning to see tho importance of this fact, ana within tho last six mouths no loss than four largo manufacturing establishments have boon located there. Tho woolen mills of Messrs. Sinclair & Co. will bo probably tho larg est in tho West, and now employs 125 opera tives. Tho establishment of a factory of woolen machinery aud tools' by Messrs. Kent, Baldwin & Co. will probably employ fifty operatives. Tho match factory and planing mill of Messrs. A. J. Griggs & Co. will employ probably fifty more. Tho Illinois Steam Forgo Works, whoso buildings are now being eroded, will employ perhaps a hundred men. Tho Chi cago Iron ana Stool Company aro also about to erect works. Messrs. erecting a building for the manufacture of grist mill machinery. Besides these, we hear of alargo carwhool manufacturing company having bought ground for works to bo erected this summer. The extensive lumber enterprise of Messrs. Par dee, Cook & Blanchard, who expeetto tow rafts of logs across Lake Michigan, from tho Groat Bauble River, of Michigan, ana saw them up into lumber on tbe banks of Calumot River, has boon de scribed at length by Tun Tribune and other city papers. The above mentioned establishments will,in all probability, all bo in operation at South Chicago before fall, and by next spring will bo employ ing not less than 1,000 operatives there. Those with their families, and tho population already there, bid fair to givo South Chicago a population of 6,000 pooplo within ft year, even if no other manu facturing establishments than those above men tioned should bo located there within that time. It is probable however that a good many other establishments of one kind or another will bo drawn there Within tbe year. Tho Company who own South Chicago and a vast extent of adjoin ing land are offering largo inducements to manu facturers, and will undoubtedly induce a good many more to come. With as attractive a point toward which to reach out it is reasonable to expect that the eleven miles of distance between tho mouth of Chicago aud Calumot Rivers will within a few years be a continuous lino of streets and bouses, aud that Chicago, instead of having only ono over-taxed outlet for vessels as now, will bavo two which will eventually be connected by a canal from Line Island to tho Stock Yards. auuuAnr or thaksfebs fob the week.

No. Cattle, Ho There is now lltllo doubt that tho wheat mar ket is cornorod for this mouth, and It Is probable, therefore, that much bettor prices will bo realized for No. 2 spring wheat this month than during tho remainder of tho year; though it is possible that tho oornor may bo run into July. It is not for us to advtso country holders to rush in their wheat ibis month, because that would bo la tho interest of tho shorts. But it is permissible to call attention to one thing. If owners of wheat in tho country think it to bo to their interest to send as much of it hero during Juno as they pos.lbly can, and soil iu advance of .Us arrival, they should protect themselves by calling margins that will guard them against loss in caso tho corner should break. Tho cor- iiors in wheat and oats, of last yoar, broko boforo maturity, and caused great loss to parlies who bad grain on tho way at tho timo, bocauco they had not insisted on a pecuniary security; and tho rules of tho Board of Trado aro now in much bettor shape than then in this respect, though far from being what they ought to bo iu regard to corners. Borao of tho lumber brokers seem determined that common lumber shall not bo quoted lower tbnu SIO.OO per 1,000 foot by tbo cargo, though it is notorious that many sales have boon mndo at a much loss price. What tboy hope to gain by tho deception is uot so apparent as the decep tion itself, as no ono is cheated into buying ut tbolr quotations. It is a gamo that really turns out to bo a losing ono in tuo end, however much of advantage it may promise in tho present. THE aiAKKETS. The leading produce markets wore quiet to day, except wheat and oats, which wore active. The receipts are larger than heretofore, and the shipping movement is falling off, making tho grain markets largely artilloial. The comer in wheat attracted tho largest share of attention, drawing off operators from tho other markets, and making some of thorn quite stagnant. Quito an active husinosswasdoing in tho differ ent departments of tho dry goods market, and tho prices current earlier in the week wore gen erally sustained. Groceries were not in urgent demand, though In comparison with tho earlier days of tho week tho distribution was considera bly larger, both of staple and side goods. In prices there wore no quotable changes, the market ruling steady. Tho butter trade was quiet, with no ma terial variation in prices. During the past few days tho outward movement has boon largo, and at tho moment tho stocks in storo are light. Solos of strictly choice yellow oro easily effected at 20@240, while tho poorer sorts go slowly at 10@lCo. Tho demand for grain bags was only fair, and prices wore not particularly firm, at BC>(fo for Stark, 850 for Ludlow, 840 for Lewiston, and 820 for American. No new features wore noticeable in tho choose, coal, canned goods, and fish markets, a moderate movement Doing witnessed at former quotations. Dried fruits remain dull, with prices generally easy. Hay was steady at yesterday's quotations, ilidoa and leather were quiet and unchanged. There was a liberal amount of trading in oils at IQUdpWo for carbon, at sl.oo@ 1.05 for liusood, 7uo for extra lard, 870 for whalo, and Co@s7c for turpentine. The lumber dealers report aa active business at tho yards. Tho local trade was good, and there has boon a largo number of countiy deal ers in tho city, who have boon liberal purchasers. At tho docks a moderate business was transact- od at about former prices; good to choico boards and- strips sold at 614.00@1G.00. and commou mixed qargoos at $9.85@10.00. Lain and shingles wore unchanged. Tho demand for metals, nails, and tinuors’ stock was fair at present prices. Iron was moderately active aud unchanged. Tho inquiry for building materials is fair for tho season, and the supply is largo. Now brick are now being sold . at 6G.50@7.00 per m. Wool and hops wore quiet mid nominally unchanged.* Broom-corn is in fair Eastern demand and firm at tbo nno- ; tationa given. Tbo stocks aro getting low. Seeds woro qulot and unchanged. Green fruits mot with ft fair inquiry. Poultry was la moderate request, turkeys being ft trifle lower and chickens at about Friday’s prices. Eggs were plenty and easier. Hlgmvinoa woro a shade moro active at Fri day's quotations, sales being reported of ICO brie at 00a por gallon. Lake freights were dull, and Utile hotter than nominal at a decline of lo from Friday’s rates, though there woro but few vessels in port. Ship pers held off, as there is but little inducement to ship at present prices. A total of three charters was reported, which wiU take out from this port 82,000 mi corn, 10,000 bu oats, and 23,000 bu ryo. Bail rates to Buffalo wero Co for corn, aud Gjffc ou wheat. Through rates to Boston woro reported at iso per 100 lbs. Provisions woro dull and unchanged, except that lard was a shade firmer, having partially re covered from tho depression of yesterday. There was no demand, except for one or two lots of lard, tho moats reported having been sold last evening. Live hogs woro stronger, but not in consequence of a local demand, us tho summer packing is reported to bostopped in consequence of tho lack of demand for product. Summer killing has also been suspended at oth er Western points for tho same reason.

It was simply a question of comer or no corner: principally the first. 'The impression has gained ground that tho parties who are believed to bo long to tbo extent of nearly two million bu on Juno wheat, have determined to force things as fur as money can make them go. In proof of this, tho faot was cited that tuoso parties had refused to change round, or to sell differ ences, and had called margins yesterday afternoon to the extent of $250,000. though In some oases they had had to deposit SIB. against ovory $lO, tho market being that much against tho combination.

Corn was quiet, but firm at an average advance of per bu, The most deferred options woro tbo firmest, being in most demand, while there was littio done to buy caob lots, and shippers woro very backward. Eastern markets woro quoted strong, but tho principal reason of tbo increased finunoßS hero wan that tho recent drop brought out a good many buying orders, and holders woro loan anxious to coll, occing that tho rocont rumoi'H of hot corn prove to have been baseless, while the condition of tbo weather is very favorable for tho beeping of com hence forward. Now York has been depressed by tho receipt of corn tboro in bad order; but wo have no reason to imppouo that any of our No, 2 com now in, store will grow hot, though some of tho moro loosely Inspected com received lost winter may havo warmed up too much to suit the owners.

To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: From preccut proopccls wo in our part expect a heavy oat-crop this year, and our wheat is in splendid condition. I have made somo inquiry in regard to tho acreage of oats sown this year compared with last season, and find about forty acres sown thla year for one iu 1873. Our grans is flrst-rato, ond of old com tboro la no umt. The corn-crop with us this year, to say tho worst of it, wifi bon three-quarter.crop anyway. L am still iu tho same notion I wno when I wrote you last week. I would sell rather than buy for July and August at tho present prices. Although the Onarga gentleman thought I had an cyo core or Bomothiug else then, I wonder if bo can see by thla time that there Ja somo corn in the country. I havo no doubt ho flnda men scar him that did plant 150 to 200 acres in otbor years that wont got out but littio this season, aud may bo somo none at all, as we havo Just such people hero. I myself planted somo years fifty or oven 160 acres, aud this year haven’t got one-quarter of uu aero plant ed, and others aro in tho same position, but this is an exception to tho rule. There aro plenty who havo tho nerve io plant U, and now havo it growing and looking well, —of course not as well as last year, and a good thing that it doesn’t, or corn would not bo worth over 16 cents. Tho Onarga man thinks I must bo short, ond if I could soo him aud got from him 44 cents for July or 48 for August, the ruling prices then for corn, I would relievo all bis doubts on that point by soiling him all ho could take ot thoso prices, and I think when tho trades woro closed ho is tho ouo who would ho short. Yours truly, Pnonuoun. WOOL. Walter Brown & Son, of Now York, write as follows:

Tho market elands to-<lay with very light slocks; prices ore a shade lower than a mouth ago. and there is hut little animation in trade. It is quite probable that with larger supplies In market, the range of prices would by this time hare boon somewhat lower. If this reasoning is correct, wo may look for such a result to follow the arrival iu market of any considerable, amount of tho now clip. In connection with this re> view of tho subject, wo may remark that circum stances aro likely to favor, if not positively to produce, a comparatively steady market during tho coming sea son. There will probably bo a much smaller number of Eastern buyers at tho opening. Wool will bo loft to take its natural course and drift Into tho hands of country dealers and store-keepers; thus while it will find Its way Into tho seaboard markets lu quantities sufficient to afford consumers a good and liberal selection, all will benefit from tho absence of tho usual excitement at clip time, and manufactur ers will avoid the Injudicious Investment of money in tho raw material so much In advance of its use, and also participate in the general advantage of escaping the fluctuations, consequent upon tho dlsturbauco of the natural and healthy marketing of n great staple. It is the impression among moneyed men. that groat caution should ho used In making obligations which will mature in tho fall, as is usually done by operators in wool; because the return of cool weather will bo likely to bring' with it the usual autumn financial stringency, effecting tho value of staple which, from the day It leaves tho sheep’s back until it passes into consumption, Is so close a representative of money. LATEST. la tUo afternoon wheat was in moderate de mand, and closed %o lower than on ’Change.

Instead of there belug a uurplus of good to choice fat steers of from *1,250 to 1,450 lbs average, as had boon the case during tho preceding three or four weeks, tho supply of such has proved In adequate to satisfy tho legitimate demands of sblp liers, while butchers’ stuff, which for some time past ias been scarce, Jo now In excessive supply. Tho ef fect upon prices, of tho changed character of tho sup ply, has been marked, tho upper grades meeting with prompt sale at gradually-advancing rates, while com mon end medium qualities accumulated from day to day. and steadily depreciated in value. The tone of advices from tho seaboard has been favorable for tho sbippiug Interest, and, while tho market has been devoid of excitement, steady activity has characterized it, so far at least as shipping grades were concerned, and prices hive crept up a good 250 per 100 lbs. Common stock baa been in good request on local account, but under a too liberal supply, sales dragged heavily from tho opening to the close, at an average reduction of 250. Comparatively tho demand for stock cattle was small, but there wero buyers for all suitable offerings, and at tolerably full prices, or at f3.7CQ4.7C for common to good lots of from 700 to 1,050 lbs average. The offer ings of Texas cattle wore numerous, aud, if wo except choice corn-fed, which have sold well up to last week’s prices, the market has favored buyers. Tho best wore taken at f6.00Q5.40, while the poorer sort sold down as lowasf3.4oQ4.CO. Mow milch-cows continue in fair request aud in ample supply at f20.00@45.00 per head. Veal calves sell all tho way from f3.0U@3.25 for poor, to $5.09(35.50 for choice. To-day fair activity characterized tho demand )for tho different grades of cattle, and yesterday prices were uniformly well sustained. The receipts were somewhat larger Hum had been anticipated, but alter tho wants of buyers had been mot only o few hundred (and they of tho common sort) remained unsold. The . market closed steady.

The following is taken from the Grand Rapids Daily Eaglty Juno 41 By observing quotations It Is apparent (bat lumber is to-day worth as much or more in Grand Baplds as In Chicago, and little or cone of tho product of Michigan, that is manufactured away from tho laks shore, will sock a westward, as tho East sud South afford an ample market at more remunerative prices. As tho supply In tho Eastern States la be coming exhausted, while the consumption of lumber is yearly Increasing, It fellows that much of tho pro duct of mills that formerly sent lumber to Chicago will no longer look in that direction for a market. As a consequence, tho amount of lumber that will reach the Chicago market la nob likely to increase with the demand that must come from the prairie Slates. This seeming to be tho esse, it also seems that tho price of lumber must advance yearly. In comparison wlthformcr prices,the present figures for lumber may appear to buyers to bo ado. quate, but the production of lumber la constantly be coming more expensive, by tho enhancing price ol stumpago and tho greater distance logs have to be hauled to the streams, and the growing uncertainty of floatage In the smaller streams, caused by their more rapid rise and fall, In consequence, U is supposed, of the clearing of so large an area annually of too timber that once held the snows of winter till late In spring, and grodually feeding tho streams so that they wore available for several weeks for floating logs, which period lu now much lessened. During tho next three months tho amount to go for ward to Chicago and Milwaukee from tho lake shore porta Is very largo, aud any material advance from present rates In tho existing condition of the money market, is not to bo expected.
