riis'. miKKirn*. Kcvicu of lh«* Jlsrkci FOR TUE WEEK ENDING 1)CC. 18, 1SG6. A dull trade has characterized the past week aiul market values remain without much change. Our merchants do not anticipate much trade until after the opening o! the new year, when purchases are made for Spring. The failure of a prominent house on Commercial street hA8 not created any alarm. There is no scarcity of money on good (securities. Cold was very steady la8t week, the average price being about 137$. On Monday, 17th, it started up a little and sold as high as 138$, closing at 138j|. Tues day it opened at 138f, closing at 137$. » It is said to be the intention of Secretary McCul loch that gold shall not go much below 140, neither shall it go above that point. There is no doubt that he can control the market in this respect, and thus prevent the nitrations of speculators, who would send it up to 150 and even higher if they could. APPLES—The market continues to be well sup plied with good fruit, and prices range from $3.5tKg 4 50 per bbl. for sound winter apples.

FIjOUR—There is a better demand and the choice grades have recovered from the decline experienced iu New York last week. We notice the arrival of about 5000 barrels choice grades St. Louis, by sea from New Orleans, which are tirrnly hold at $15 to $17, the latter price for favorite brands and in job bing lots.

The demand continues to be good for all kimls. WOOL—The wool market still continues very dull and there is no prospect of an improvement at present. In New York, last week, the trade brightened up, but it has again subsided and prices are weak. The manufacturers are losing on their goods as they can not be manuiheturud, with wool at the present rates, without a loss. 11 is not supposed that the prices for wool have touched bottom. ZINC—Except lbr home purposes the demand has fallen off. Prices are unchanged. FREIGHTS—Business is dull and there is no im provement In rates and hut few demands for Cuba freights.
