A despatch from Chicago says : " The ex tension of the Grand Trunk Bailway to this city is now a settled fact, the contract having been finally closed for the construction of the link between Valparaiso and Thornton, and through trains will, it is expected by Manager Hlckson, be running from this city to Portland by a route exclusively owned and controlled by the great Canadian company by the first of next December. Yesterday a meeting was held at the Grand Trunk office, at the corner of Clark and Washington streets, of the stockholders of the State Line Bailway and the State Line Extension Bailway. After full consideration consolidation was agreed upon, and to the new organization wag voted the name of the Northwestern Grand Trunk Railway Com pany," and this afternoon the organization of ths company was perfected by the election of officers. In an interview last night with the representatives of the Grand Trunk at Tremont Hotel, they expressed themselves thoroughly satisfied with the arrange ments made, and enthusiastic over the sub ject of future business with this city and the jNorthwest. The line to be constructed is less than thirty miles in length, and no portion presents anv difficulties in the way of rapid construction. Messrs. Hickson, Bel!. James Beed and Meddaugh left for Can ada last evening. Mr. Peck will take charge of the operations of the constructed road of the Northwestern Grand Trunk Company. There is a great feeling of congratulation among Chicago shippers at the final accom plishment of this enterprising step on the part of the Grand Trunk Company." The Globe this morning contains the following special cablegram, dated London, September 3rd : Sir Henry Tyler replies to Colonel Grey's proposal relative to the fusion the Great Western and Grand Trunk Bailway companies. He agrees with Colonel Grey upon the main question of the desirability of a joint-purse arrangement, but refuses to guarantee the Great Western a minimum of net earnings, because practically this would amount to an absolute lease of the line. Be declined to accept Sir Edward Watkins as arbitrator, because his services would be unnecessary. COMMERCIAL Gasstti Omcs, Wednesday Evening.

Lake and canal freights for grain were Jo lower to-day, at 5c wheat, 4c corn, from Chicago to Buffalo ; to New York, wheat 13c asked ; corn, life asked. The visible supply of wheat in the United States and Canada, according to returns re ceived from Chicago to-day, is 15,374,849 bushels, and corn 12,494,480 bushels. The Chicago hog market was easy at a de cline of 5c ; light grades, $3.50 to 3.65 i mixed packers, $3.10 to 3.35; heavy ship ping grades, $3.35 to $3.50. Official receipts yesterday, 11,470 ; shipments, 3,663. The production of butter and cheese in the United States is said to be four times greater in value than the total yield of the gold and silver mines. . The grape crop is reported good iu all lo calities except in Northern Ohio, where much rot prevails. Wine manufacturers hope to get a full supply this season at living prices. Ocean freights from this port to Liverpool and Glasgow for grain are quoted steady at 5s 6d to 5s 9d, and to London 5s Sd to 60s. Flour, 2s 3d per brl. Sheep and Iambs are still being purchased in different parts of Quebec and Ontario for United States markets as well as for Great Britain. At New York on Monday last 68 Canada Iambs, averaging 74 lbs, sold at 5c per lb ; 15 Canada sheep, averaging 80 lbs, at 4c per lb ; 15 do, averaging 100 lbs, 4c per lb; 219 Canada lambs, averaging 60 lbs, 5 l-5c per lb, and 1,700 do at prices ranging from 6c to 5c per lb. It wa-s reported to-day that the steamship Qiebec, of the Dominion line, inwards, was ashore off the point of Prince Elward Island, and wss likely to become a total wreck. Upon making enquiries at the office of Messrs. D. Torrance ft Co., our reporter was informed that they had received no direct Intelligence of the occurrence, although they had heard the vessel in question was ashore off Prince Edward Island. They discredit the rumor, however, and state that if there was any truth in it, they would be the parties most likely to receive the first intimation. THE TEA TRADE. What tbe Hatloaat Policy has done. We learn from the circular of Comes & Co, dated Yokohama, August 12th, that the direct shipments of tea to Canada this season have been 1,500,000 lbs., against 200,004 lbs last year, a result due entirely to the new tariff. The S.3. China, which has just arrived from Japan, brought over 1,102 packages of tea for Montreal, 256 packages for Toronto, and 126 packages for Kingston. The total export from Japan this season, to July 28th, was 13,338,034 lbs., against 11,050,259 lbs. in the corresponding period last year. Messrs. Cornea & Co. report on August 12 th ; " Our tea market continues most active, and all supplies are eagerly taken on arrival. Prices latterly have advanced fully $1 per picul, and we see no chance of any decline taking place, as the bulk of the crop has already been purchased. Settlements to date amount to about 21,000,000 lbs. at both ports. The total export, we estimate, will be about 27,-000,000 to 28,000,000 lbs. ; consequently, there are only some 7,000,000 lbs. to be bought between now and the opening of next season. Later on shipments will begin to fail off very materially, which will, no doubt, cause your markets to rule firm towards the end of the year." COXTISESTAL, CHOP PRuSPECTS AD GKAI.f MARKETS. From latest foreign mail advices regarding harvests and grain markets on the continent ot Europe we note that harvest work was being actively pushed forward in various parts of France, although in some sections frequent thunderstorms had interfered with operations. Threshing had commenced and samples ot pretty fair quality wheat were being forwarded to the different markets. Owing to harvest pursuits being vigorously engaged in, farmers were generaMy in thin attendance at tho markets throughout France. The imports of foreign wheat were increasing in noraeaux, which Induced a more quiet feeling in the trade there. At Nantes, Havre and Marseilles the markets were quiet and unchanged. In Belgium the wheat supply was on a more liberal s aile, but all arrivals , had been previously pur chased, in consequence of which immediate delivery was in fair demand at full rates, while more distant p-riods were comparatively quiet and less steadily supported. In Holland the weather wis unsettled, which hindered the ripening of the cereals. Bains were frequent, and fears were expressed of the failure of the potato crop. The wheat yield it was thought would be only an aver age one at the best. Wheat and rye for for ward delivery had advanced, and a tendency in that direction was apparent in Rotterdam. From trustworthy reports we learn that the condition of tba German grain crops is be. coming better. Even in those districts where incessant rains have prevailed the rye and barley crops will give unexpected results, and in S uthern Germany it is now stated that rye ill prove a good average yield Whrat prospects were also said to be improv ing daily. In the northern wheat regions of tbe empire the prospects were much better under the ameliorating influence of more propitious weather. The new grain crop in Austria was held at a considerable advance in prices for export, which checked sales. The aivance was from 85 centimes to one franc With the exception of o its, all grain crops in Hungary will show, it is stated, a deficit in yield. At Pesth the wheat market opened firm but not dearer, but during the week va lues moved up in consequence of a limited supply. Flour was also dearer. Advices from Boumania reported the weather fine and hot ; maiza having suffered from drouth which, there was little doubt, would pre- cluie tiie possioiuty oi a large crop. Tnroagh a demand tor maizs for Italy, prices were being rapidly advanced. THE SHORT CKEOIf SVSTEU. The system of giving short credits is be ing generally adopted in Chicago and other Western trade centre-, many wholesale firms there are working upon a purely cash basis Dry goods, hardware, boot and shoe, hit, cap and fur houses which until lately extended their credits to three, four and six months, are now invoicing at 30 and 60 days, and such has been the successful working of this plan already, that well-to-do firms which were wedded to the old system, and averse to the least innovation, ara cow foliotcioj the eximple of thusa who fiist reaped the btrnt-fit o' the much needid reform. There nre ot1! ts w'.o i re cultivating a sltictly ca-h business b allowing the usual discount, which, rmny buyers are availing thftaaelres 1879. of. If short credits were more generally practised here, it would undoubtedly go great way towards furthering the revival of business which now appears to be drawing upon us. Til K HOP BaARK.Es. Speculators have thrown up the sponge, and left the hop market to the legitimate operations of the trade, having become satis fied that there was lio "big bonanza" in hops after all. Shippers who consigned them to the ether side at low figures have been advised not to repeat that sort of thing, as there was no money in it. Prices here are steady at 6c to 8c per lb for fair to choice qualities of 1878 growth. A sale of 18 bales was reported to-day at 6c. Some country holders have set their affections upon 10c for last year's crop. In some distriots hop-pick ing hag already commenced, but it will not become general before the 15 th Instant, and it will be well into October before much of the new crop finds its way to market. A good yield is promised In Prince Edward county, and if the weather continues favor able for picking a good average'erop may be expected. The London Timet of August 21 says: "The first pocket of this year's growth arrived in the Borough this morning, and, considering the almost total failure of the crop, wag of fair quality. It was grown by Mr. A. Bartholemew, Staplehurst, and consigned to Messrs. W. H. k H. Le May, hop factors, Borough, and sold by them at j28 per cwt to Mr. W. H. Teuton, who had spe cial instructions from the Mnrree Brewery Company, Murree, India, to whom it has been forwarded by steamship Dsccau. The New York market continues to lose strength, and the situation according to latest advices wag in buyers' favor. EXGLISH CATTLE MARKET. A private oable received to-day from Lon don reports the cattle market improving at slightly sdvanoed prices. Mail advices just to hand are also more encouraging, prices in Islington being quoted at 4s 6d per stone rj 8 lbs, and at Deptford, where American cattle are slaughtered, 3s ed to 4s per stone as to quality. PETROLEUM. The Petrolia Aiceriiser says : The princi pal feature of the oil market at the present time is its quietness. Nothing whatever is doing in the trade to make it worth record ing. Quietude reigns -supreme throughout the whole district, and the oil trade of Canada may be said -to be taking one good rest. In the developing line very little is doing, and it we except an occasional hit of some lucky operator, this branch of the business is really not worth mentioning. During the past week the fortunate one if he can be termed such has Dean Mr. James Lawson, whose efforts have been rewarded by a good hundred-barrel well. It hag been variously estimated at from 100 to 500, but it cm be truthfully put at 100 barrels a day. It is situated on lot 12, In the 12th concession, near fithole, and may be reckoned as one of the best strikes that has been made for some time. Messrs. Bolston, Isbister A Co 's well keeps at to barrels a day, while that of Messrs. Gurd Gillespie 11 good for 30 bar rels. Several other ventures are on the way, and will receive due notice according to their worth when completed. The market may be said to be firm at 63 cents, and will, we tninn, ere long reacn 7u. JXOIAXA'S WHEAT YIELD. The Indianapolis Sentinel, after earful omputations, estimates the wheat yield of Indiana this season at 55,000,000 bushels. Assuming the population of Indiana," re marks the Sentinel, " to be 2,000,000, and that six bushels per capita is required for hoaie consumption, our figures show that the State will have for export 43,000,000 bushels, or something above 17 per cent, of the entire foreign demand, and more than 23 per cent, of the entire available supply of the whole country for exportation. These estimatrs, based upon the most reliable data that can be obtained, brings Indiana into the boldest prominence as a wheat-growing State. This will be still more readily seen by a comparison with other States. The wheat crop of Minnesota is estimated at 40,000,000 bushels, 15,000,000 Dusnels below the crop ot In diana, and the crop of California is estimated at 33,000,000 bushels, or 22,000,000 less than the crop of this State." JVF.ItPOOL PROTISIOX .MARKET. (From Messrs. Hodgson Brothers1 Circular e August ZSra ) Bacoi has met with a steady demand, and holders have been able to show a little firmer disposition. We quote Staffordshire, Stretford, and Birmingham cuts at 27s to 33s ; Irish Cut, 26s 6d to 27s 6J ; xorkshire, 27s to 30s ; Cumberland, 26s to 30s ; Clear Bellies, 27s to 31s ; Bib-in Bellies, 27s to 29s 61 ; Short Middles, rib-in, 27s to 29s ; Long Middles, rib-in, has been well enquired sftor at 31s to 35s 6d ; Wiltshire Cut, singed, 33s to 35s ; scalded, 30s to 33s. Shoulders, 21s 61 to 23s. Long and Short Clear has been in fair demand on the spot at 26s to 27s 6d for Long, and 26s Si to 27s 61 for Short. Hams. There is scarcely any demand, and holders are very anxious sellers. The ueuil summer demand, which comes usually with summer weather, not having as yet put in an appearance, arrivals are liberal, and stocks are accumulating rapidly. Quotations for all excepting tbe few f tncy brands are qnite nominal. Sellers would be willing to accept a reduction if buyers offered. We qsote medium to average quality of Long Cut 30s to 42s, finest parcels 44s to 46s asked, but few selling. Staffordshire Cut are not so plentiful, and are saleable at 40s to 48s, according to quality, bhort Cnt dull, and dimcult to sell quoted at 35s to 40s p cwt. There has been too great a difference in value lately between bacon and hams, and this is now being rectinea. Laud, There is not a strong deniaud, but with firmer American advices, holders iu some cases ask 6d per cwt more money. We quote to-day prime Western, in tierces, 31s 61 to 32s per cwc. Pose goes on slowly at our quotations which are unaltered. We quote finest prime mess, 50s to 56s per 200 lbs ; medium brands, 40s to 50s. Bisr. Choice parcels continue scarce and are firmly held. Extra India mess is quoted at 82s 6d to 92s 6i per 304 lbs. Lower grades aie not so readily sold. Cbeiss. mere has been a Quu marset this week all holders aie anxious sellers but buyers hold of, and the few operating are looking for nnest, rich clean navored. and good conditioned goods, at 28s to 30s, and this quality is not easy to find at this season of the year at any price. We quote up to 30s for tinest quality, and 24s to 28s for next quality below, ot which description nearly 90 per cent ot tbe imports consists The efforts which are being made in many towns in England to bring on a better con sumptioneven selling a good cheese in re tail at 4d per lb should bring on a better wholesale enquiry, but up to the present the country demand is disappointing, not even eq nailing the present lighter receipts. Bcttkk. Only the finest creameries attract attention, and the demand is not strong for such, but owing to light stocks, folders are firm at 75s to 80s. Fine quality, at 60s to 70s, is difficult to sell, the quality offering at this price being below buyers' requirements EXPORT. ST WATER.
