Tho outward movement of grain was fair, and the receipts rather large in comparison with the recent record. In the dry-goods msrket the clearing* were not numerous nor Important. Prints were again weak and unsettled, and fee reduction In one or two brands was noted, but otherwise the market waa fairly steady. The demand for groceries was fully up to the expectations of the trade, end a steady and firm feel ing prevailed ail around. Of lals coffees have been receiving considerable attention, and pricee show more stability than for some time previous. Jobbers of dried fruits were fairly busy, both the local and coun- .*1,04,030,333 try trade ordering freely. Dolh Imported and domes tic varieties showed a good degree of strength. Fish were steady as previously quoted. The coal, wood, bagging, leather, and tobacco markets presented no important new fealnres. Oils were In fair request, with prices unchanged, except for carbon, which was held ife higher. Lumber waa la moderate demand at unchanged prices. Nearly all the Lake Michigan lumber ports are now accessible by Teasels, and as more of the mills are starting up tbs receipts henceforth are likely to be liberal. Metal tinners* stock, nails, and Iron were In only fair demand and generally steady. Balt was steady at $1.40 for fine. The stock here is ranch re duce*!, but liberal receipts by water are expected now that the BtralU are open. Tho btoom-corn and bay markets were unchanged. Small orders are received dally, and prices are tolerably steady. Wool wa* alow and easy. Dealers are dosing out the stock of old, prices for some grades of which aro some times shaded. The quantity in ataro U small, and, if the new season opens late, as some parties think It will, probably little old wool will bo carried over. Good bay waa again In request and steady. Timothy and clover seed were lo good demand and higher, the offerings being small and In the hands of a few parties who refused to sell except at their own figures.

We publish the following extracts from a letter by a Chicago house to a How York conuapondeut, in reply to certain comments on Drlllah stocks of wheat, and the prospective supplies of that cereal: Should the liberal shipment! to tbe United King dom be continued throughout the balance of tho crop year proportioned to those they have been favored with, and that nation tbe only consumers, we should quite agree with you Uiat their atocks would become eo burdensome as to loroo such a break in prices as to pervart its use or drlvsU Into channels unuausl. llut we notice by our foreign advices of lain that a •• new feature" has arisen, to-wit: a demand from tbe Continent; and if we ore permitted to pay auy respect to the estimates made by the Agricultural Departments of (be Governments throughout f.urope, tho crop of 1878 was deficient in nearly ell of them, whilst our own country indicates a deficiency of 31 per cunt, thus giving promise of a moro general demand with diminished supplies. From this wo derive tho con clusion also that the shipments from this as well as other parts of the world will soon be materially lesson ed and a steady drain made from stocks (u store, so that the great weight of the unusually large " visible supply ll will be reduced to en ordinary averago. The causes of this eicvsalvs aggregation of stocks in ths United Kingdom we think are well understood to be the sharp and material advance in values with them in August last, calling forth supplies from tbe remote quarters of the globo; whilst thus© In our own country aru reasonably accounted for l>y tho inferior Suailty, more particularly of lowa, "Mklug it far from csirablo (u- bold, tbo moro eaimviully eo os prices were st least fair during tho fall and early winter. Tost tho movement then was moro then ordinarily froo wo cite tbo fact that from Bept. 1, 1875, to Jan. 1, 187 G, the receipts here were, 10,8j5,X6 bu, as against last year, corresponding llmu, 10,363,771 hu, end against su avurago of the past ten years, correspond ing time, 9,406,frit bu. Now, when we consider that tbe receipts here during the past season wore less, proportionately, thou at Milwaukee In former yoars, owing to the •• corner " and high pricca than rnllug In that market, and that ths crop of 1876 was ushered In upon empty granaries on account of the temptingly high pricca of July and August preceding, end to the further fact of (he dsfi eieuoyot the crop, as above noticed, we draw the fur ther conclusion that the country back of us can afford comparatively small supplies between this and another harvest. Our cstlmats would pUc© ths maximum at not over 66 per cunt of a year ago. Iksldoa we notice that ths depleting of tbo ** vlsiblo ■uuply ” at points of accumulation in this country is being wrought rapidly, indicating something moro than 3.500,u00 bu during the past fortnight. And as ths muvemsut from Uku jiorta by rail into the wiuler wheet eeclluua fur domestic wants ia larger than usual, the supplies for the seaboard will bore moot with an Important check. In our review of the situation we do not bring to beer any extraordinary demand that may arias conse quent upon (he lessened area sown throughout tho United Kingdom, or the cutting off of supplies by tea eon of political complications in Eastern Europe, but, on tbe contrary, wish to allow the full benefit of so cuslomod advantages and thst tbo returns from tbo growing crop lu our own Northwest will be toumi/ul. As to (he recent very material decline lu values wo cen account for it only In s local point of view—on the ground of s genera) demoralization of the bulla, and the bears prtaalug their advantage to a complete rout.

Tbe market was, however, eteedler than on Friday. The further decline was chiefly dne to unfavorable advices from other points, hoge being firmer at the Union Stock*Yards, under smaller re ceipt*. The Cemwwretof Huiltlm of Ibis city has the follow ing In regard to summer packing t With liberal receipts in hogs, accompanied with a moderate decline In values, packers were enabled to run their houses actively daring tbe week, and tbe ag gregate packing et this point since the close of the regular season may be estimated at 9U0.00Q hogs. Dur ing the Utter part of March and tbe first half of April tbo receipts of hoge were no doubt restricted by the extremely bad condition of tho roads In the country, and the receipts now aro regarded as morellbcral than generally anticipated, owing to their uneven distribu tion. At country points, packers generally report quite liberal receipts of bogs, and tbe packing In tome cases exceeds that of last season. The quality of the hogs packed is fair—generally reported slightly better than that of last season. At Cedar Rapids tbe packing aggregates 10.070. against 19.H19 to dale last season.
