ANOTHER REDUCTION IN TELEGRAPH RATES. It Is announced that the Atlantic «fc Pacific Tele* graph Company are about to make another general reduction In. telegraph rates. The Baltimore fiS Ohio Railroad on Tuesday last transferred all their business, Including that of the New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, and Baltimore offices, to the Atlantic & Pacific Telegraph Com pany, Heretofore they have used the wires and machinery of the Western Union Company.

Tho San Francisco SatUlln, In announcing that tho capital stock of tho Florida Mining Company,, In accordance with tho prevailing fashion on tho Pacific coast, was about to bo increased from (6,000,000 to $10,000,000, says: Operators have found out that verdant buyers Will give as much for a share where a mine Is divid ed.

NEGOTIABILITT OF STOCK CERTIFICATES. Judge Donohuo directed a verdict In New York on Tuesday In favor of tho Sixth National Bank against tho Chicago & Alton Railroad Company for $10,013,1 on account of *the refusal of lha Company to recognise as valid a certificate for SIO,OOO of preferred stock In tho road, on which the baqk had modo a loan, wblcb was not paid. The plea of tho Company was that the certificate, while in blank (In which Condition it came to tho batik) had. been lost, and tho bolder who pledged It to the bank hod no title. WHEQB TUB LBOAL TBNDBRB FOR REDEEMING NATIONAL BANK NOTES 00. Treasurer Now and certain Now York bankers have lately been corresponding ns to the disposition made of the legal tenders deposited by National Hanks for redeeming circulation to be withdrawn. Treasurer * Now corrects the popular belief that when banks surrender tholrdrculatlcmlegal-tender notes are forwarded to Washington. Under the law. tho banks turn over the amount of their legal tender notes to the nearest Sub-Treasury ordeposll ory, and receive a ccrtlflcatoof deposit. This fact alone la reported here, andiholegal-tcudcrnotcs are -not forwarded, but arc chocked against from time to Hmo by the Treasury as National Dank notes are presented, or to meet other disbursements. Under tho existing law tho Government gets the benefit of tbQ difference In tho amount of legal tenders do iposited-forthe redemption of banknotes and the ’actual,omonnt of the latter surrendered. This loss of bank notes will, It Is bollovcd, bo very heavy. The amount of legal-tenders deposited for the re demption of National Dank circulation docs notap pear In tho. monthly debt statement, became the amount Is held by the Sab-Treasuries and dcatg natod depositories throughout the country. The amount of legal-tenders now In the Treasury la obonl $70,000,000; $33,005,000 for tho rodomp* tlbn of. certificates of deposit or Clearing-House certificates; $27,565,000 representing' tho surren dered. circulation of National Banks, and about $10,000,000 cash In tho bands of disbursing of ' fleers,. DULLNESS IN TUB NSW YOKE STOCK MAHKET.

An attempt has recently been made to obtain a statement of the stocks of lard at the principal points In tho United plates, but to no ovall. 81, touts and Indianapolis arc tho only cities from which ovenspproxlmnto figures could bo obtained outside of Chicago. U seems Impossible to find out how much Now York and Cincinnati Imvo on , hand, though a careful count of pork Is made at the close of each month in New York, and telegraphed to Chicago. Why them should bu any mystery about lard U hard to toll, but a good (or bad) res, son evidently exists for keeping mum on tbs sub ject, in spite of • tho-rcsolatlons raudo in regard thereto by tho National.

A good many operators ox^ : pressed thu opinion that the magnitude ofthosq charges, drive a great deal of grain owayfroiq 'this uuxkvlt bat not allUlowns said |o support#! tbo view that those • charges are far from being the - only cause of (kodecadcocofiioargraia trade. It was urged ttust the rules of' tbu' Board' of• Trade,' , fniuud with tbo vine of pycvdwtiugcomeraluprodt .nee. uauMiinro in do W|tu It Hum the warehouse ctiargqa. It t* claimed by -many, men wboiuivu , given their adnlt lives to the trade that those rules encourage short selling to on extent which permn* ncntly depresses our market to a point which Is not attractive to holders of grain In the country, keeping prices 2® 3c per bn. below tho point they would average if people who sell abort did so with the full knowledge, that they would bo obliged to deliver the property, A cose In point was died where very recently two or three par ties "held" between them about 0,500,000 ho of wheat for May, there not being more than one third of that quantity in store. The short* mode a raid on ft, ond tho parties above noted ns long wore obliged either to let go or slandnpand take 10, • 000,000 bit or tnore In addition, offered by parlies Who calculated upon New York going down In sympathy with Chicago, so that they could settle without loss on tho basis of a shipping margin to . New York. A nearly similar condition la exhibited In corn now. The orders for corn for shipment have been so numerous ns to ennso a marked ad vancc In tho price of cosh lots, but tho offerings for future, mostly made by men who do not own a bushel of corn ond never expect to own ono for more than five minutes at a time, have Imcn so largo ns to depress the price for Juno and Jnly to l*®2c per hu below the quotation for spot, and this Is what Is called “ making a market.” It does make a market, bat that market Is not one to attract men who have grain to sell,—they can make more by sending It elsewhere. And so the grain goca around ns, tho bearing of prices abolish ing tho Inducements to sell. Just ns tho chronic biilltngof prices under tho old corner regime dimin ished the Inducement to bay hero for consumption. There appears to be littlo room for doubt that both that and this wore extremes, each of which contain ed Injurious elements. Is It not possible to Invent some rules for trading which tend to encourage the producer to send his grain here In tho expectation of realising tho bent possible price therefor with out endowing tho capitalist with all tho powers and prerogatives of a Spanish Inquisitor t Ono thing Is certain: This ought to bo a pro ducers' market; ono to which tho farmer conld look as offering him the opportunity of seeding for what his produce Is actually worth to ship, with tho minimum of fair charges for handling. With such a market thoro need bo no fear of Chicago losing her grain trade, as this city is the natural focus of commerce for tho Groat West. It Is worth our while to try hard to quit artificialities, and got back to that condition os soon os possible. If our warehouse charges bo too high for that, they should bo abated, though tho change should In volve the necessity of turning half our warehouses into churches or schools. If commissions are too high, they should bo cut down. If our obnoxious State Inspection stand In the way, that should bo abolished, and If our Board of Trade rales bo un fitted to the fostering of the trade In real grain, Instead of mere wind, lot them bo summarily and radically cltangcd. Thoro la not ono man in a hundred who will compare tho volume of our grain reccipta now with those of former years, but will agree that there has ocon a-grievous decadence, and that this could not liuro occurred witboutaomo adequate cause or causes. There are few who will not agree that It la highly desirable to discover and remove those causes if possible.

The leading produce markets were irregular yes terday, with rather Icm doing In the aggregate, bat with an upward tendency In grain, and dull ness In provisions. The weather was stormy, but that did not materially affect the markets,—not half so much as tho little gleam of sunshine about 1 o'clock, which caused a downward turn of about He in wheat. The forwarding movement was dull. Jobbers of dry goods had a rather qnlet day of It. Comparatively few buyers were to bo seen, and, although a fair number of orders were received through tlio mails, tho aggregate distribution was light for the season. Groceries weto fairly active, ami prices, both for staple and sido articles, were uniformly well sustained, Although the tendency In coffees, seemed to bo downward.

Bagging was weak at 26c for Stark, S4Kc for Lewiston, and 220 for American, Oils were quiet. Carbon advanced another lie. *»* Tho.lomber market was qolotond cosy. Several ■ales woro made at tho docks, but tho offerings were small, and only curtain grades of common stuff were wonted. •# Tho yard dealers. still complain of dullness, though trade appears to be Improving, tho - call -t being prin cipally for common Qualities. Metals and nails were In moderate demand. Pig tin, lead, and sheet rinc woro lower, otherwise there woro no changes.
