12 PROF. MARSH’S DISCOVERIES. The Fossil Animals of tlie Rocky Mountain Region. Two Hundred New Varieties of Extinct Vertebrates. Seventeen Varieties of the Fossil Horse. Haven {June 5; Correspondence cf Uts 2*ew TTcrh Tribune, As Prof. O. C. Harsh is now departing with another scientific expedition to the Rocky Moun tains, there is at present an unusual stir and in 'tcrest hero in relation to this class of investiga -stionß. An extraordinary success has attended £he scries of geological researches which the creeent undertaking continues, and there is ev ■eiy reason to hope that it will return as well la iden with trophies as its predecessors. Includ ing the one now starting, there have been five of these expeditions under Prof. Harsh, three of which consisted of large parties. Although ro ‘ceiving escort and protection from United States troops, the expeditions are not at public expense. The specimens collected go to enrich the Museum *of Tale College ; but all the cost of the expe fiedition is defrayed by the private individuals ‘composing the exploring parties. The expense tas amounted to more than $20,000 in a single year. No other interests than those of science 'are consulted in the explorations, of which the -chief object is to make original researches and discoveries in paleontology. It may correct a Widespread but erroneous beHef to state that, while Prof. Marsh presides over the paleontolog ical department of Yale College, the individuals ‘selected to accompany him on these expeditions !&re not a class of students from the college, £aken out for the purpose of instruction. They ’ are for the most part competent assistants, and men specially fitted for making investigations of ‘ihis order; and are selected solely with a view to 'enlarging the domain of science by accomplish ing original discoveries. The results thus obtained already far sur pass all discoveries made in Europe for twonty ,fLvQ years in the same department of research* IProf. Marsh has directed his attention mainly to Xhe extinct vertebrates of the cretaceous and tertiary formations, and has obtained more than species nev to science. In preliminary papers about 150 of these have been described, Wnd it is expected that complete details, with full illustrations of all of them, will ultimately be 'published under Government auspices. It may 4iere be remarked that the accumulated wealth of specimens from.this: oi research, as well as from ocher sources, has placed the Yale Col lege Museum far in advance of any other in this country, eo far as extinct vertebrates are con cerned, and it is surpassed by but few in Europe. The first of these expeditions was in tho sum *ner of 1563. One of the moat extraordinary ‘observations resulting from this trip { though not relating to geological forms of life, is too inter esting to be left m the pages of tho purely scien tific documents where it has hitherto been juried. Several specimens of the animal known as the Siredon were captured by Prof. sklareh in Lake Como, in Wyoming Territory, for jibe purpose of examining their habits. BmZDOJ?

The Siredona were pat into ■fresh water, and brought by Prof. Marsh to New alive. As Siredons, they enjoyed exter nal branchial appendages or gills, making a par tial frill to their nocks, and a membrane along kbe back and tail not unlike that of a tadpole. pThey were of a uniform dark olive color above Wnd light olive below. In captivity, most of (them underwent an entire change. The branchial Appendages and the tadpole membrane were gradually absorbed. Under exposure to light, dark spots appeared, especially on the back amd sides, finally so predominating that Jtlie prevailing color was a greenish black. The beck diminished in size. The snout became more pointed. The month increased in dimen sions ; the tongue became greatly enlarged ; the position of the teeth was materially changed, there were many minor alterations, resulting in o completed animal previously on record as the Amblystoma.

SCIENTIFIC VALUE 01 THESE DISCOVERIES. This wild “Western country, bo long regarded as a desert devoid of human interest, is now. by the labors of Yale College parties, made a his toric ground onoo peopled with the moat gro tesque and diverse forms of animal life; a Won derland of dragons, monsters, and chimeras dire. All tho great additions to tho Museum of Yale College, so for as vertebrate fossils are concerned, have been mode within the last seven years. Great as is the value of such accumulations of new and rare palm ontological specimens, tho most important result is in the materials they afford for eluci dating the world’s early history. It is the labor of years in which Prof. Marsh is engaged, to identify> class, and describe these fossils. Every bone is the subject of a study, and the deduc tions are set forth in printed documents, in which every word is weighed as if it belonged to a new gospel. To Prof. Marsh, who is a nnn and full believer in tho development. hypothe sis, every newly-found fossil is another link in the long leading from tho lowest to the highest representatives of ranimal life. These Western discoveries have largely consisted of those intermediate forms which were most needed to fill gaps in tho series; and hence are of the highest value in tho science of compara tive tenatomy. In tho number and variety of these extinct animals, wo have material far more important than anything Europe has to offer,. for tho solution of the questions that pertain to tho origin of existence. A brief glance at tho geology of the Rocky Mountain region shows that it was once covered by the sea, at tho period designated by geologists as the cretaceous, when the groat formation of chalk took place at the bottom of this ocean. In long subsequent ages t when this region had emerged from tho sea, it contained several im mense lakes of fresh water. Tho positions these occupied are designated as “basins.’* When lake basins are spoaen of in this letter, no exist ing bodies of water are referred to, but merely the geological formation left by the deposition in these lakes of the soil washed down into them through long ages from the surrounding hills. These basins are now, with the great elevation of that part of the continent, lifted to a position several thousand feet above sea-level. In vast spaces these formations have carried away by denudating atmospheric in fluences, the surface worn down and washed away by the storms of another series of ages, and the material carried away by the rivers that rise in the Rocky Mountains, to lay new-floors in modern oceans. But some of the deposits in the cretaceous ocean, and some of those In the fresh-water lakes, where they are capped with a harder material than the average, yet remain. The “ buttes ” are immense masses of this kind, left standing in the plains, with rough, precip itous aides, hundreds of feet high. Their tops mark the level of the deposit. Many of them are benches, resting against the adjacent moun tains. Out of their sides, frequently In almost inaccessible positions, fossils partially denuded are occasionally seen sticking out. Tho Yale party counted in one instance, from a single point of view, eleven fossil tur tles thus exposed. In tho district known as Bad Lands, near Fort Bridger, these rocky masses, penetrated by deep ravines, and eroded to various bights and shapes, make a region of peculiar wildness and desolation. EOCENE FOSSILS. The Yale College party of 1870 discovered and traced for 300 miles the basin of a vast ancient lake. It is between the Rocky Mountains on the east and the Waeatoh ranges on the west. Its dimensions are at least 300 miles north and south, and 200 east and west. Tort Bridgor, in Wyoming, from which the party started, la situated at the northern base of the Uintah Mountains, about 7jooo feet above the sea. The surrounding plain is part of a great basin of denudation, washedput of light colored days and soft sandstones of tertiary age, the deposits in one of the great fresh water lakes, that replaced the cretaceous sea from which the mass of the Kooky Mountains emerged. Remnants of the strata removed may be seen at various points around ; some in the shape of flat, isolated buttes, and others forming benches, resting horizontally against the side of the mountains. These fragments serve to show the great original thickness of this lake deposit, which cannot, apparently, have been less than 4,500 feet, and may have been much greater. A few miles to the southeast these soft strata have still further escaped denudation, and are weath ered out into fantastic, conical forms, resem bling those of the Mauvaiaea Torres” forma tion of Nebraska and Dakota. These bluffs are known in thin region as the “ Grizzly Buttes,” and through them lay the route to the Green River. Acareful examination of tills “Bod Land” district soon indicated that a fossil, vertebrate fauna of peculiar interest was hero entombed. Here reptilian life had evidently been abundant, and was represented by all its principal forma. Crocodilians, tortoises, lizards, serpents, and fishes bod swarmed in the waters of this tropical lake; while Tapiroid mammals, with many smaller quadrupeds, bad lived near its borders. Their remains had long been weathering out of the *' Grizzly Buttes,” which offered so inviting a field, that a fortnight was devoted to their ex ploration, resulting in the discovery of a large number of extinct vertebrates new to science. This basin is of eocene formation, and is the oldest of the Rocky Mountain ancient lake basins. It rests directly on the cretaceous for mation. In this eocene basin the genus Dinocc rae alone occurs. SKULL OF PHiOCEBAS zrmAniLTH—(SLIBSH) —OB- LIQUS VIEW. None of the monsters of geological antiquity was more fully equipped with the external evi dences of brute strength than the genus Dinoce ras, first discovered and described by Pruf. Marsh. It nearly equaled the elephant in size, and resembled him as to limb bones, being re lated to that animal ynd to the modern rhinoce ros. SKULL 07 DINOCEBI3 *QHAttTT,Ta—(jtiBSH)—TOP VIEW. Ah vill be seen by the illustrations, the stull is long and narrow, and supported three separate pairs of horns. The two posterior horns were THE CHICAGO-I high, and may have been branching. A pair of stont horns were mounted on the maiillariaa. The pair mounted on the two prominences at the extremity of .the nasal bones were dermal horns. The deenrved tusks are firmly implanted in the base of the horn cores of the middle pair of horns. A prominent ridge of the frontal bone doubtless served a good purpose in protect ing the eyes of these animals if they fought with each other. SKULL OF DISOCZBAS MIBABILIS (MABSH}-—FBONT VIEW. The Binocorata belong in the lower part of the basin, and are probably of about the same ago as the primula from the Pans basin de scribed by Cuvier, who, by his description of them, laid the foundation of this department of science. Among other animals somewhat re lated to tho rhinoceros and to the modem tapir, wore some species of Limnohyus and Telmaio therium, but without the horns of the rhino ceros, or the short proboscis of the tapir. An other animal about tho size of tho modem ta pir, and bearing a pair of horns upon its nose, was of the genus Oolonoceras. One of the most interesting of tho small quadrupeds was a species or Orohippus, a diminutive member of the horse family, which Prof. Marsh has recently described. The animal waa scarcely larger than a fox, and yet re sembled tho modern horse in many parts of his skeleton, tho most marked differ ence being that, in place of the single hoof of tho modem horse, it had four well-developed toes in front. This discovery was especially in teresting, as it added a new link in the gen eaology of tho horse to which reference is made elsewhere in this letter. These huge pachyderms had their carnivor ous enemies, and with the remains of the former there are many of the latter discovered. Some species of tho LvmnofeUt nearly equaled the lion in size, and were not unlike that beast in its gen eral character. A species of tho Oreocyon was related to tho hyena, though larger and more fero cious. There wore also numerous small cami veres related to the foxes and civet-cats, and many insectivorous mammals, whoso food was also abundantly represented in the same basin. We have not yet . discov ered the eocene man, and do not ex pect to; but his representative waa at least provided with a full assortment o£ tho peats of humanity. Fair equivalents of our mosquito, flea, and bedbug are amongst those fossils, and some of them aca considerably larger than those of the present day. Among TnnmTrmlfl of interest here discovered by Prof. Marsh were marsupials, related to the modern opossum, but mostly smaller, and the first fossils of the kind found in this country; and three kinds of bats, also the first discovered in America. Perhaps the moat interesting of the animals found by Prof. Harsh, were, how ever, the fossil monkeys, no trace of which had previously been ascertained on this continent. They were unquestionably monkeys, but of low type. Although these differ widely from all known forms of that group, their most impor tant characters show that they should be placed with them. The genera Limnotherium , Thino lesies, and Telmaiole-gtes, especially, have the principal parts of the skeleton much as in some of the Lemurs, the correspondence in many of the larger bones being verv close. The anterior part of the low er jaws is similar to that of the but the angle is more produced downward, and much inflected. The teeth are more numerous than in any known Quadnunana. This feature is precisely what a Darwinian would expect in the case of monkeys from eo old a deposit; for, as Darwin has shown, the tendency in the higher apes, as well as in man, is to shorten the jaw and diminish the number of teeth. One of the most remarkable features of this basin was ita great number and variety of rep tiles. Turtles are especially numerous, and many species, mostly of fresh-water types, were discovered, some of them of huge size. Croco dilea were also Tory abundant, and fivo spoexoa •were foxind, some of them equal in size and Tety similar to the recent alligator of the Southern Statee. Land and water lizards wore like wise well represented; not less than 20 species were discovered by the Yale party. Some of these lizards resembled the iguana of Central America, some of them were covered with bony plates like the present Heloderma of Arizona, but the animal was of much larger size, as, for example, those of the genus Qlyptosaurux, some species of which were six feet in length. Among the numerous remains of serpents found in the nasins were several species of BoazuSj re lated to the boa-constrictors of South America; and Prof. Marsh has indicated in the name that this is perhaps one of their ancestors. Many smaller serpents, mostly water-snakes, were also represented. A few remains of birds were found, mostly of aquatio species. Fishes were numerous, the most common being related to the modem gar-pike (Lepidorious), and the mad-fish (Amid). This whole lake with its teeming population must have been wonderfully like some of the great lagoons of the tropical regions of America at the present day. Borne of the bones which slowly sank into ita oozy bottom were washed down from the neighboring hills, as was the deposit which gradually filled it to the vertical depth of nearly a mile. In some instances, animals doubtless sank down in the mire, unable to ex tricate themselves, Bnt the vast number were fitted for existence in or on the shores of such a lagoon as has been described. The subsequent process of denudation after the deposit hod hardened, has removed cubic miles of it, carry ing it down the Colorado Elver, and leaving in buttes and Bad Lauda the ruins where the paleontologist finds entombed these wonderful remains. M3OCZKE AKD PLIOCENE FOSSILS. East of the mountains in Nebraska and Da kota is another basin, belonging to the miocene period. Here Prof. Marsh, in 1870, discovered many new species, among which were a gigantic Eachyderm, nearly as large as an elephant, which e has described as Brontotherinm gigas—Xha largest animal yet discovered in this basin. In this miocene basin the genua Anchitherium, one of the ancestors of the horse, is found; it has three toes, all of which touch the ground. Above these beds, and in the same region, are pliocene bods of more recent ago ; and bore the horse family reached its greatest development. These were the beds in which the famous Ante lope Station well was dug. The Yale party, dur ing explorations on the Loup Fork, in Nebraska, in 1870, discovered no less than six different kinds of fossil horses, moat of them of the Hip parion typo, which had two small posterior toes in addition to the usual one in the recent horse. A pliocene basin was explored in Idaho during the third expedition in 1871. In this basin fishes were specially abundant, and must have swarmed in the waters of the ancient lake. A few mam mals, principally of the elephant and horse kinds, and a few birds plated to the cormorants. were discovered. In the miocene basin of Eastern Oregon, which Prof. Marsh explored in 1871, many of the ani mals were of similar types to those in the Bad Lands of Dakota east of the mountains. Two large species of the rhinoceros, several gigantic animals related to the swine family, and two quadrupeds allied to the horse were most abun dant; Besides these, two species of Orcoden, a ruminating hog, several carnivores allied to the panther, and other smaller mammals were ob tained. In the pliocene beds which overlie the above strata in the same region, fossil horses were es pecially abnndant, and no less than six species were found. One gigantic rhinoceros, two ex tinct imels, and many carnivorous animals left their remains in the same beds, and were disin terred by the Yale party. None of the many fos sil rhinoceroses yet found in the West had horns. The Antelope Station on the Pacific Baßroad, in Southwestern Nebraska, furnished an im mense supple of valuable fossils. 'While engaged in winking & well at that place in June,lß6B, a layer of bones was found by the workmen, at a depth of sixty-eight feet below the surface, which were at first pronounced to be human: but, during a trip to the Bocky Mountains, Prof. Marsh ex amined the locality and bones, and found that the latter were remains of tertiary animals, some of which were of great interest. The well wa w subsequently sunk about ten feet deeper, and the bones obtained were secured by the Profes-. sor. An examination proved that there were four kinds of fossil horses, one of which he de-. scribed as Eqmis parvtUus, Although it was a frill-crown animal, it was not more than two and "one-half feet high. It was then by 1573 -—- far the smallest horse ever discovered. Of the other kinds of fossil horses, one was a three-tped horse of the Eipparton type. In cluding the above, the number of species, of fossilhorses discovered in; this country. was seventeen. Of the other remains; there were two carnivorous animals, one about the size of a lynx, and the other considerably larger than a lion—the last twice a* large as any extinct carni vore yet discovered in this country. Several ruminants wore represented. There wore also the remains of an animal like 4 the hog»a “8® rhinoceros, and tw’o kinds of turtles. Those to gether forming fifteen species of animals, and representing moven genera, were all found in a space ten feet in diameter, and ax or eight feet in depth. It is supposed that the- locahty’ was once the margin of a great lake, and that the animals sank in the-mir# when they wont down to tho water to drink. TU DEBTVATIOJf OP EQUINZfI. Pileothere; 6, Hipparion; e, Horse. It used to be stated in old-fashioned books of natural history that “ the horse was the gift of the old world to the new.** But whole races of horses lived and perished in America ages be fore men went down into the sea in ships. There are now in Yale Museum the fossil remains of 21 different species belonging to the horse family. These animate varied from sizes that are larger than any now existing, down to delicate crea tures not bigger than a fox. In fact, Yale is par ticularly rich in fossil horses, and the series la cot only remarkable in its completeness, it is a chain of linfra regarded as strong evidence in favor of the development theory. 'While they are all horses, there isyet a marked gradation of form among them. The change from several toes to one, as in the foot of the modem horse, seems to bo clearly indicated. The earliest form (Orohipptui), is the eocene, had four toes. The next tin order (Anchifterium), in the miooene, had three toes, all of which reached to the ground. The next ( Bipparion ), in the plio cene, still had three toes, but two of the three were than the front one, somewhat like the posterior hoofs or rudimentary toes of the deer and ox, and did not touch the ground. The most recent forms have but a single toe, like the modem horse. The above diagram, from Owen's Comparative Anatomy, gives an iK lustration of thin metamorphosis in this and oth er animals. Although the sole object of Prof._ Harsh in these expeditions has been the discovery of vertebrate fossils, the expeditions under his charge have made important contributions to a knowledge of the geology, geography, an tiquities, and natural resources of the regions explored, many of which _had never before been visited by civilised Tnan, And it Is worth considering that while tho study of these extinct animals may seem to per tain so exclusively to the domain of pure science as to have no practical bearing, nothing is really further from the fact. Fossil remains are in truth the indices of formation that contain them, and often show at once whether coal or other valuable mineral deposits can be found in a given vicinity. Paleontology is now the cor ner-stone of geology, and the geological struc ture of any region can only bo known to a cer tainty by a study of its fossils. Thousands, nay, millions, of dollars axe spent every year m explorations throughout the country for coal, oil, or metals, in places where a competent paleontologist could at once decide that tho prospect was utterly hopeless. MONETARY. Satubdav Evxkdio, June 21. The demand for money in this market seems to bo a little more active, but there is plenty of it yet for all borrowers who can produce satis factory collaterals. All the banka would be glad to increase their discounts of prime paper at 10 per cent (which really means 11 per cent inter est), and moat of them would make call loans on collaterals at considerable less than 10 per cent. There is a great deal of paper oifered in the open market by brokers, but tho maior portion of it is real estate and accommodation paper, which tho banks profess unwillingness to take to any considerable extent. Tho, demoralization of the grain markets, m consequence of tho hot com excitement and tho apprehended disturbance of the movement of products by tho new Railroad law, have created a feeling of great uncertainty in almost all lines of business, and will doubtless exercise an unfavorable influence on trade generally for some weeks yet. Exchange on New York was firm to-day at 25c per 81,000 discount. There is a good deal of currency gomg to the country, and it is believed by some that this in dicates a desire to get as much grain and other products as possible across Illinois before tho new Railroad law goes into effect on July 1.

It was generally understood that the com is out of condition in three other houses, the Hough Ele vator, the Union Elevator, and the Bock Island A; and everybody seemed afraid to buy, or hold on that account. Many wished that those houses should be posted, as that would restore con fidence in the receipts remaining, the only ones which would then bo regular. Some there were who thought that, although the com there is out of condition, that strenuous efforts will bo made to ovoid posting till after the Ist of July, so as to give holders a chance to unload on to two or three heavy firms who have bought the bulk of the options for next month. It is probable, however, that posting will be avoided in two of those houses, because the pro prietors would rather suffer loss themselves than allow posting. The proprietors of one can point to an unblemished record in this respect, they having expended many thousands of dollars in former years to keep the grain in condition, either by steaming and cooling,or by shipping out the bad grain before it had time to contaminate the rest. About half-past 12 o’clock to-day, a notice was posted on the bulletin board, to the effect that all tho No. 2 corn in tho Chicago & St. Louis Elevator (Hough’s) was out of condition, and that extra storage would bo charged thereon until removed. The quantity thus implicated is a little lees than 61,000 bu. Tho firm had nearly 000,000 bn in the house six weeks ago, but made herculean efforts to clear it out, and suc ceeded by buying up their own receipts, and selling com free on board yesterday they dater mined to buy up all tho receipts out against tho 61,000 bu now in store, and placed a broker in tho market for that purpose, but the holders of those receipts generally refused to sell at cur rent Quotations. Hence tho Messrs. Hough only secured some 11,000 bu, leaving the re mainder (say) 50,000 bu in the hands of other parties. , . Tho following preambles and resolutions, rel ative to the com question, discussed in our col umns this morning, were offered on ’Change to day by J. W. Sykes, and seconded by H. C. Ban ner. They will come up for action on Monday. "WHEBKAfI, It is charged by the daily press of this city that com has been posted as out of condition, when the facta did not justify such action, and that the subsequent withdrawal of tho com from store showed that only an insignificant portion of the posted com was really out of condition ; and, Whebzas, Such alleged improper posting of the said com has tended to depredate io a vast extent the value of all tho corn in store here, causing a severe loss to the owners thereof, and affording to such parties, who may have possessed correct Information, an opportu nity to purchase said com at a depreciated price; and, Whebxajs, Tho law give* a warehouseman authority to publldy post com out of condition, or becoming bo, only when •* it is not in their power to preserve it therefore, ilctolvtd, That a Committee of three bo appointed by the President of this Board, subject to the approval of the Directors, and that this Committee be, and hereby in instructed to make a full, and careful, and im partial investigation of the acts of the posting, and the cat:*© for the posting of the said com, of the effect of said posting on the value of com in this market, and of the facts and condition of the subsequent withdraw al of tho posted com from store, with the statements of the parties who withdrew the com, and the State Inspector and his Deputies who examined it when shipped. 2. If such Investigation shall show that tho posting of the said com was properly and legally done, and substantially found correct wnen the com was ship ped then the facts shall be stated to this Board, and made public, to the end that no such unwarranted chargee or statements may pass without correction. 8 But if It shall be found that such posting was •without sufficient legal or proper cause, and that tho subsequent shipment of the com so proves as alleged, then thin Committee shall lay before the Directors » record of the facts, and shall report to tho Directors whether the parties who so posted the com are members of this Board, and what action, if any, is wise and proper in tho mat ter And this Committee shall aVso lay the record of these fact* before the attorney of this Board, with Instruc tions to carefully consider the same and to report hi* opinion in writing to the Directors, whether they con tain or cover sufficient ground for any criminal charge or legal steps against the parties who are so publicly alleged to have wrongfully posted the said com. The loading produce markets were nniet to day, except com and oata, which engaged the at tention of the great maaa of operators. Outside of these there were few important features to note. Our receipts of produce continue libera], and shipments fair. The general feeling to-day was one of comparative steadiness. Dry goods jobbers reported a fair inquiry from local retailers, and a liberal “ order business" on interior account was also transacted, but se lections were mostly small, and did not make a very satisfactory aggregate. Values were not subjected to any appreciable change, the leading staples ruling steady and comparatively firm, while undesirable makes, and unseasonable goods generally, were irregular in price. The grocery trade, though still lacking in activity, exhibits more life than at the begin ning of the week, and prices seem to he more settled and uniform. There is a largo movement in sugars, the extreme low prices stimulating the consumption, and holders are more confident. Coffees remain dull, and are not especially firm. Only a moderate amount of trading was done in the butter and cheese markets, and the depres sion noticeable for some some past has in no measure disappeared. Prices for both of these staples are unsettled and irregular. Coal was dull at former quotations. The opinion that the price of anthracite coal will not go much, if any, below the present location ($3.50) seems to bo gaining ground among dealers, and at the moment the market is firm. Fish continue in active demand and remain firm at the prices current earlier in the week. Mackerel are, temporarily, scarce, and most other descriptions are in light stock. Dried fruits were selling to a moderate extent at yesterday’s revised quotations. The hay market was dull at the late decline. Receipts are falling oft some, but the stocks on hand are largo, and sellers fonnd it impossible to realize at any bettor prices. Hides and leather remain inactive. No changes of importance were noted in connection with the paints, colors, and oil markets, a fair movement being witnessed at substantially yes terday’s quotations. The wholesale lumber market was only moderately active tt about the same range of prices. At the yards a fair business was transacted for baturday, the common grades being principally in demand. There was no quotable change in prices, thongh they are easy for common green lumber. The iron trade continues moderate, and rates on com mon bar are weak at a deline of 2-10; steel re mains steady. Nails are also rather weak, thongh without quotable change. Metals, naval stores and building materials were unchanged. New w’ool is coming in slowly, and meets with a moderate inqmry. Broom-com is loss active, but steady at the quotations. The receipts are in creasing. Seeds wore quiet and nominal. There was a fair inquiry for green fruits, and lemons wore very firm at 815.00 per box. Bernes also advanced. Poultry and eggs were plenty and freights were loss active at %c advance, carriers early insisting on a rise in rates, which shippers were reluctant to pay. A total of seven charters was reported, which will cany out 80 000 bu wheat and 75.000 bu com. In ad dition to this, freight-room was engaged for C 8 000 bn wheat from Milwaukee. Chicago rates were, to Buffalo. 7e on com, and 7pjc on wheat; to Kingston or Oswego, ll’i(SUK= on com, and 12@12K° on wheat. Com to New England points by through rate was quoted at 23e via Buffalo. Highwiues "wore quiet and steady at the recent decline, tbo paucity of offerings preventing a further drop m sympathy with .New York dull ness. Sales wore reported of 150 brls at 89c per gallon. Provisions vrere rather more active, and weak. Mess pork "was in good demand last evening, at higher prices, and the top sales reported below ■were made then. But that fact brought out free offerings this morning, beyond what vras wanted, and caused a decline of s@loc per brl from the closing prices of Friday’s session.

The premium'on cash wheat over July diminished to about 4c per bn to-day, but tha difference is still too great to allow of much buying for shipment, and the purchasing is speculative, thoso who buy and those who hold cash wheat doing so in anticipation of an ex pected squeeze for this month, at the end there of, ihe chances for which are, however, growing “small by degrees, and beautifully Thera is a good demand for shipment at this point, but orders are generally held back till the gap is closed up. The uncertainty with regard ,to tha future continues. Operators do not know what to think about the volume of our receipts nest month, though inclined to tha belief that it will not bo much affected by the now law. But they do not care to trade, except in settlement, and almost nothing else was done to-day. New York was quoted quiet and dull. Seller July opened at $1.15, declined to advanced to SLI5 Z £, and closed steady at -$1.15. Seller tho * month was inactive, there being no offerings. Cash No. 2 spring was in some demand from the short interest. It opened at $1.19. fell oil %c, advanced to $1.19%, and closed at $1.19@1.19%. Seller Au gust cold at $1.12@1.12%, closing at $1.12%.

Total, 87,400 bu. Corn was active and steadier, but irregular iu movement. There waa more confidence in re gard to the condition of com now in store, and a corresponding improvement in the tone of the market for cash lots, which were2@3o perbu above tho lowest point touched yesterday, while the more deferred options averaged a shade lower than on Friday, but were strong, in sym pathy with cash com. The business transacted was, however, chiefly in settlement, outside of the purchasing for shipment, and that was much more sparing thau on Friday. Most of tho com already declared hot had been bought up already, and that believed to be hot, but not yet posted, waa the subject of so much uncertainty that nobody wanted it.' Tho posting of tho Chicago & St. Louis com, late in the session, had no effect upon the markets, as tho fact had been expected by all concerned. There was considerable spec ulation in regard to tho condition of the com iu other bouses, some of which is believed to be hot. Liverpool was quoted 6d lowerper 490 lbs, and Now York was nominaL Seller July opened at 31%, declined to 31% c, and advanced to 32% at the close. Seller August sold at 36% and seller, September at 38% @39c, both closing firm at the out side. Seller tho month, or regular No. 2, opened nominally at 27c, and closed at 30c. Strictly fresh receipts of No, 2 closed at 32% c; and rejected at 26%0. Cash sales wore reported of 24,400 bn No. 2 at 32%e; 18,000 bn do at 32%0; 8,800 bu do at 32c; '5,000 bu do at 31% c ; 30,000 bu do at 30e; 25,000 bn do at 290; 17,000 bu do at 320 free on board; 3,200 bu rejected at 26% c; 16,400 bu do at 26% c ; 5,800 on do at 260; 4,400 bu no grade at 20e; 2,000 bu do at 19c. Total, 161,000 bu. Data were in better demand, and about %c higher, though with no encouragement to hold ers in the tone of New York dispatches. Bat receipts were smaller, and there were several orders on the floor from parties who believed that oats have already touched bottom for the present. Seller July opened at 26% c and ad vanced to 27%0 at tho close. Seller August sold at 27@27%c, closing at the outside. Eegular No. 2 closed at 26c, and strictly fresh receipts at 26%0 cash.

Tuesday.... Wednesday. Thursday.. Friday Total 12.704 38.992 760 CATTLE-A very quiet week was passed in this dapart mcntof tho live-stock market. The continued heavy re ceipts, and tho unsettled condition of prices at tho sea board have kept the market dull and depressed, and while prices have suffered no very pronounced decline they have ruled weak and variable. Shippers claimed to have lost money on last week’s consignments, and they have steadily refused to invest except at some thing of a reduction from former rates. The stock offered for sale, though perhaps a trifle better than that received during last week, was far from being satisfactory, Texas cattle, cows, and this steers comprising the larger portion. These descrip tions steadily accumulated in the yards, and many will hove to be carried over to next week, when In all prob ability they will have to bo disposed of at even lower Srices thou were prevalent the puat few ays. ' The supply- of Texas cattle—already liberal—exhibits a steady increase, and, as these foreign cattle axe preferred to common natives, drovers son scarcely hope to profitably handls the lat ter. The range of the market during the week was $2.8506.33—the inside figures for thin through Tex ans, and the outside for a bunch of extra graded steers, averaging 1,604 lbs. The bulk of the transfers, however, were effected, at $3.0004.50 for Texas cattle; at $3.5006,00 for poor to medium natives, and at $3.25 05.60 for good to choice do. To-day trade was quiet at unchanged prices. Local and outside bought moderately, the former at $3,000 4.75, and the latter at $4.50(2,5.00, Extra Beeves—Graded steers, averaging 1,400 lbs and upward.

The market falling off in the arrivals since 'Wednesday has resulted In a sharp reaction, yester day and to-day’s advance amounting to a strong 45c, which carries prices back to within lOOISo of the closing quotations of last week, or to $i.4004J35. If Western shippers are desirous to continue the experiences of the past two or three weeks, they have but to regularly scire the “ bait ” as It is regularly thrown to them at the close of each week. The “ Utils game is so old, and so many have fallen victims to it tit is somewhat remarkable that the Western drover—who is credited with possessing something more ordinary sagacity—should still be misled the market opened active and strong. Tbs receipts amounted to only about 3,800 head, and, under a brisk competition, sales were quick at 20c advance on yesterday’s rates. By the middle of the afternoon everything waa sold, and the market closed at $4,400 4.45 for common ; at $4.5004,65 for medium, and at $4.0004.85 for good to choice.
