The or- Sen* from tbu country for currency were large, jomparod with the amount averaged of late, and [he expectation is entertained of heavy receipts of ituff during the week. The banks have signed an agreement to dose to day In observance of Decoration Day, nnd there rvill he no mcctlngof the Clearing-House. Since lids agreement by the bunks, the Hoard of Trade, Instead of Adjourning over Diet entire day, ua was ixpected, decided to sit till quarter past 1.

The leading produce markets wero active yes terday, and generally lower, Grain declined early, mid ruled stendy afterwards, while provisions were almost puulcky till near tlm close of the mission, chiefly because of the failure of a rather large operator In lard.- Outside of this, tho lead ing feature of the day wuh a material augment in the receipt* of breudstulls, and the principal news was that which indicated that tho European world Is not no much excited over the war question us heretnfoie, It was reported that British consols were firmer, and the gold premium In the United States was less limn Saturday's quotation. Hence a downward tendency In prices here, though tho re ports of tho cereal movement were encouraging; tlm reports of the past week from (ho lending cities of ttio Atlantic seaboard warn some 1,.’00, • 000 bu In wheat und Hour, and over 1, GUO, 000 bu corn. in ll»H min, llhVl n:>2 Atlfd, Tlio dry goods market presented no itnnsiml fea tures. lew buyers weru tu bo aeon, lint a fair mioihcr of order* came hi by mull, tho elocution of which nave trade Mime hlpm* of Ufo.

Oils were quiet, and the quotations of lard. liuveod, turpentine, and wlmlo wore reduced, A large licet of lumber vassals was at thu sale docks, and the market was active and steady. Tho yard trade continues fair at unchanged prices. AtM. Mr* VJ‘.» i:id ?U i:m 40 The deniund for hardware and metals contlnnca moderate, and prices for some articles were Ir regular, owing to (be sharp competition between some of the local bouses.

Sheet-Iron Is quoted 14c lower, liruom-coru continues to move out quite freely In answer to orders, and the but ter grades of burl are scarce mid Arm. Heeds were quiet and unchanged. The wool market remains dull, and prices are variable. Iluy was aUo dull, especially prulric, which Is arriving freely on wagons. Green fruits were steady, excepting strawberries, whtcbducllnrdnndurheuvy offerings. Uiko freights were more active and a shade firmer, but without any decided advance In rates. Wheat was taken to liutlalo ut and to Kings ton at Hull freights were dull at nominally unchanged rates, and cars were freely offered at 20c to Now York, 1«»: to KhUadelphla, 17iic to ilaltimons, and 26c to bouton, por 100 jbp.

The situation docs not promise much Im provement at present, ns hogs are coming forward very freely, both to this cily nnd to packing points In the country. Indeed, It seems as If the recent break in tho prices, of hogs has only increased tho anxiety of farmers to sell, as they think there Is little chance of nn upward reaction, and wish to realize ns far from the bottom as possible. With no prospect for Improvement In this direction, and a probable further decline, thorn certainly Is not much ground for hoping that product will soon sell higher than the present range, as the winter' cured stulf is meeting with increased competi tion from (lint of summer make. lint we And reason to believe that the stocks of product have nearly all worked out of the hands of weak bolder* during the excitement of the past few days, home of our heaviest operators here, nnd some of the most solid men In .Now York, have taken bold largely, and are certainly oft/s to carry the load If they have the disposition to do so. Of the two or three parties here about whom some anxiety has been expressed, wo understand that all of them hare made arrangements which cover (Itc situa tion, and several lola bare been ordered shipped out, so that tho outward movement during the first half of June will probably be a very large one. Mo-t parties of experience in the trade hud lung regarded prices ua 100 high for safely, and buyers fur consumption studiously held aloof, leaving the property to be banded around here on contracts for future delivery, and carried, for so much per mouth, for parties who persisted In believing that the investment was a good one. The decline (hut resulted from this reti cent attitude has now been Important enough to induce a chnngo of base, and even more numerous orders may bo expected tho moment tho market gives signs of having touched bottom by turning upward. There Is therefore good ground for believing that the consequences will not be more serious to the trade than now. Indeed, the danger Is now tho other way, —that the men who have recklessly sold short during the tumble, and who would continue to do so should tlio market decline further, will ho caught up in a round turn la the reaction which generally follows such a sharp movement as that of the last fortnight in hog products.

How long in It since nil the Chi cugo papers were abusing the Hoard or Trade for tolerating ruled that admitted of corners being run? In my Judgment the Hoard of Trade legislates 100 much—have too many mien. They are now bo numerous and complicated that no two of our moot eminent lawyer* coo agree sis to their proper In terpretations ; and ft U wore not for our over-ready Secretary to glve-'lhe true and proper interpreta tion, intent and meaning, tho members of the Hoard would he constantly In litigation. Hence, the able and accomplished Secretary Ims come to bo regarded us Indispensable. If the people should take it into their heads to Rond him to Congress (they might go Mrtherand fare worse). U Is feared tho Hoard of Trade would Immediately go to the bow-wows. To avoid such catastrophe, 1 would suggest that the Hoard of Trade abolish about half their rules, and, instead of enacting a rule agulntt corners, adopt a rule holding every member to a n(r\ct, ij>eclilc lier/onname of hit contract, liable to suspension for failure to per form. without submitting the question of damages to tho Arbitration Committee. When a member sells short ho knows ttie risk he assumes.—it Is tho short sellers that allunt tho opportunity to corner the market. Keganling the effect of the decline In tho grain trade on Urn general prosperity of Chicago, I wish to suggest that the Board of Trade are not respon sible for It. Some ten or twelve years ago the Board of 'l'rade, appreciating ttie importance of the graiu trade to the welfare of Chicago, organ ized & “Commercial Committee," l»> bo com posed of representatives of tho various indus trial and commercial Interests, hut the merchants, manufacturers, etc., appointed on that Committee neglected to attend tho meetings. Marshall Field und William E. Doggett were the only representa tives (ouMdn tho dally attendants of tho Board of Trade) who wore at all regular attendants, and the Committee was abolished. Again, the Board of 'Prado recently raised a special committee to In vestigate discrimination charges by the railroads. This Committed gave diligent attention to the discharge of the duties devolving upon them; gave much time to Investigation, und dovclupeu facts which In their Judgment called for it perma nent organization to look after tho general interest of Chicago in the matter of transportation and terminal charges. They recommended such an organization, and pave much time In culling on merchants outside of tho Board of Trade, and urging the subject on their attention, hut fulled to awaken snfiiclent Interval to organize the proposed association, and abandoned further efforts. It Is a fact, which dues not seem to lie under stood outside the Board of Trade, that nhio-leiillis of thu daily attendants on the Board do not feel any Interest whether much or little grain comen to the Chicago market. They buy and sell options for millions of bushels dally, and watch tlm receipts as posted on the biilleilu-tioard only for the pur pose of Judging how tho dully receipts may ailed prices for the time tholr options have to run, und fed no interest beyond that. Now, Dir. Editor, give Um Board of Trade a rest, and cull on out siders to look after their ownjlntercsls. If they wish to do so through the organization of the Board of Trade they will no doubt Ilnd the ©Hirers und members ready to co-operate with them. They am s generous, widc-uwukc body, and when called upon to art for the general Intcroats of Chi cago, they move promptly and elllciontly,—as wit ness the election hist full, and again last April; they do not mind adjourning over for bulf a day, or a whole day, when Oceanian requires.
