I’rices of produce an«l provision* were mTecfeil. find towards tho end of Hie week tho orders for currency began to In crease from the wheat district, nnd the price of ex change fell, showing nil Increased tendency In innrket the crops and export. What the effect uf wnr in Europe would bo on business and Industrial Interests lu this country, nnd In tho West nnd Northwest pnrtlcnlarly. was widely dl«cus<Td. That It would create ftn Imme diate and sharp dumnnd for our hrendstiiffs nnd meals was generally conceded. A great nmny of onr manufacturing Industries would receive ft stimulus. Tho relief brought hy the OItH War to our hindnesH Industries, prostrated hy the panic of isr.7. Is constantly rofened to, and although the remedy Is universally acknowledged to he worse thfin tho dlecftMC, it is not to he disguised that tho ffoncnil opinion holds that n giuftt foreign wnr would at least banish the torpor that now affects business nnd finances. The loan market was very quiotdurin? tlic week. A large amount of maturing country ami city pa per was paid. Thu Application* for now discounts were light, and much below tho ability ut the bank* to respond. Hates of discount Arc BQIO per cent to regular customers. Independent borrowers can obtain better terms. On tho street, pood negotiable paper la In do matut. Hates are HfalH per cent. New York exchange was weaker, and .'old be tween banks at par to 25c per SIiOUO premium. There were more orders from the country for currency.

MOUE I.UGAL UU.SSIIYISM AIIOUT DANK CHECKS. The Louisiana Supremo Court, In Um ease of Helwcge vs. Hibernia National Bank, where a check for S-ll was raised by.-the drawer, after cer tification, los4,l*>o, and pushed to plaintiff in the course of business, held the bunk llnblo to pay the full amount. The decision seems to have been placed ou the ground that the hank was negligent lu certifying a check in which there was such a blank as to allow tiic alteration to bo made without exciting suspicion. Expert testimony was given that if the blank had heeu scored with a pen the murk could not have been erased so a* to leave no traces. The same ridiculous theory of courts la held nearer home. PHILADELPHIA FINANCES. The Philadelphia banks arc heavily loaded with unemployed funds, a very largo portion of It, ns wc are informed, being in greenbacks. We have not heard of their making loans recently under the legal rates, but tbeynro certainly anxious to in crease their discount Hues, and yet in the present almost universal depression of business they nre timid in tunning, lest what they should make from Interest on loans should bo more than equaled by losses on the principal of bad debts. There will come u time, wc suppose, when mouey will bu in demand fur legitimate business ones, but that will be when old stocks urn further reduced and lowest prices reached. —Philadelphia hfthjer, 23fA May.

The leading produce markets were active on Saturday, and mint of them were weak, the chief exception being in wheat. Outside of that im portant cereal, the day was one of hcavlncaa In pricca; but the volume of bmdncfl* transacted was unusually large for Saturday. The foreign mar ket!) were generally linn, with a good demand, and it was reported that u further depression In tho price of British consols accompanied a further decline In the quotation for Fulled States currency, which indicated uneasiness in financial circles in reference to the prospects of settling tlio Turkish dltllcoUy. But fine weather here, and the indications of larger receipts, made holders nervous, and the hears rampant; the calling of margins on tho longs being a prominent feature of the day’s work. Tho crop prospects in the West were considered good, and tho outward movement of produce was fair for the season. None of tho feature* of the dry goods market wera noticeably different from those prevalent In tho earlier days of tho week. In all departments there was an air of quiet, while aside from notions, and light fabrics adapted to summer wear, the quietude almost amounted to positive dullness. As to values, the market was steady. Groceries met with a fair sham of attention. There was not n numerous attendance of buyers, but the mails brought n generous number of orders and a very respectable aggregate of goods was distributed. I'rUcs ruled steady both for staple and side articles. Butter Mas active at about previous rates, selling at 12ft20c for pour to fancy grades. Cbeesu was ordered very sparingly, and the market had an un dertone of weakness, in the fish, canned goods, and dried fruit markets there was little that was new. Leather remains dull, with values unsettled. Coal and wood are unchanged. Grain bags arc quiet and easy. Lumber afloat was steady under a fair Inquiry and moderate offering*. During the week Just past common lumber has sold readily at the docks, and prices have been maintained In the face of the largest receipts of any one week since the season opened. Country and city dealers have bought free ly, In antic! [nit lon of a hotter demand for lumber, now that the farmers have timo to attend to the marketing of their produce. Tim iron merchants report a fair trade at the recent rates. Seeds wero very quiet except (hu late kinds, which are selling in small lots from store. Timothy wua scarce ami firmly held, and clover was scarcely quotable, us the season Is over, llay was quiet, and prairie was weak, lu consequence of tho frc6 arrivals of loose hay, but the offerings of pressed were very light, heueu recent prices were sustained. Wool continues dull and easy. Hides, broom-corn, and hops wero unchanged. Strawberries, lemons, and oranges were In fair request, while other green fruits wero rather quiet. Poultry and eggs were slow and steady. Lake freights were fairly active and a shade flriiicr, on«lio basis of 2*ic for wheat and for corn, by sail to Buffalo. Halt freights were dull at nominally unchanged rate*, and cars wore freely offered at 20c to New York, IHc to Philadelphia, 17iic to Baltimore, and 2. r >c to Boston, per 100 lbs. Through rates by lako and roll were quoted at 10c for corn and 11c fur wheat to New York, and 13c on corn to Boston, Freight engagements were re ported fur 123,000 bu wticat, 17b, 000 bu corn, and bO,OUO bu oats.
