COMMERCLAL OfflCT Of CTUB fICAIOBfc, 1 atarday feejng. May in. I- We bear ef some rnrtB small sales of Sogar at prices ranging from wloc, but esone ef tbe parttcalara have beca reported. Nothing transpired in Molasses. The las sales of Tobacco reaSvted were the Sll hada. netlcsd In oar repart ofeetterday. We have beard of ne other indications of any movement la the market. We notice, however, an increased Bomber of advert! seal ants by parties willing te sell tkeir goods at eooat old prices for Confederate notes, and onleas something should occur to prejudice tbe community against the currency, business operations will probsb y btsai more liberal scale. Tha Banks continue open daring the osaal hoars, and receive ar d pay ever their counters Confederate notes, which consMtate in fact almost onr ealy bankable money snd are the baars for all private lasaea. We notice bot few additions te the comber ef retail stores doing business, which wc regret, as we see no valid reason why the local trade should not be resumed. If we are correctly informed, tbe C. 8. Military Commander not only does not restrict such trade, but actually encourages It. r.
