Dun & Co, in their weekly review of trade, say: "There Is a distinct increase of confidence, due largely to the continuing and heavy Imports of gold which have put an end to monetary anxiety, and also to political event* which are closely watehed. While it does not yet start more mills ana! factories than are closing for want of work. It crops out In heavy speculative purchase! of plff Iron, wool and some other materials, by experienced men who believe that a re- vivtl of business is not far off, and for tha first time In nearly two months a slight upward turn appears In prices of manufactured products. The same spirit appears In speculation. "Wheat had suddenly risen a week ago. but reacted with better crop news until Thursday, when another advance came of one cent, making- the net decline for the week l"i cents. Western receipts continued large, 5,215,706 bushels for the week, .icainut 4,550,101 last year, making the Increase slnco July 1 about 12,000,000 or 53 per cent. Atlantic exports are also laree, flour included 2,032,063 bushels against 3,347,352 last year, and since July 1, 18,073,551 bushels, against 11,315,6-13 last year, a gain of C9 per cent. Gloomy stories find little support in such returns. Corn has reached, at Chicago, the lowest point ever touched, 20 cents In 1S61. and has again broken all records here, dc- olin.'ng to - J j^ cents, at which ii closed. Cotton fell to ~.S7 cents, but with revival of conJIOfnc-e rose to S.50, although the prospect is clearly more favorable than somo weeks aco. "After many weeks of decline, so that the average of prices for Iron and its products was the lowest since early last year, prices have started up a shade. Heavy speculative purchases o£ Bessemer at the west and of southern Iron here the latter mainly by New Yorkers at JG.40 for No. 2. and 15.99 for grey forge, have 30 strengthened the market that Bessemer at Pittsburgh commands 511.25 and grey forge }9.CO. The various associations have not reduced prices, believing that It would not stimulate demand at present, which is extremely narrow and as yet shows no Improvement ."The starting of some woolen mills which have been idle and accumulating orders for a short run Is still balanced by the stopping of others, and the volume of order* does not Increase. No gain as yet appears In demand or prices. But a marked speculative buying of wool show» belief tha.t prices will Improve. Cotton goods ar« prowlnc stronger, more grades having advanced, and though Bales are moderate, there are. more buyers, Indicating ezhaui- tloii of dealers' stocks. "The volume of trade Indicated by clearings was, for the week 10.7 per cent. .'e» than last year. Exports of mcrchandlBft for tho week were 40 per cent., and for the past inoiith.lC,2.p_er cent, larger than last year, while Imports were for the week 1» -»mal4er r 'and for the month 18 percent, smaller than last year. '^SSflUlures have been for the week SS4 .In the United States, agmlnst 1SS last year, and SI In Canada, against 3S last year." nradfltrcct'* View. Bradstreet's says: "There IB a somewhat belter' feeling among, wholesale merchants as to pros-, pects for autumn trade In seasonable goods. This extends, to. some Industrial lines, notably iron and stecL Chicago sales of Iron this week are larger tian for all of August, and Pittsburgh sales'are larger and prices better on the outlook for harmony among steelmakers. The more encouraging feature as to the' movement OS prices lies In advance, of .quotations for wheat on the stronger statistical position and free export movement, higher price* for Iron and steel at Pittsburgh -and Chli cago, with a gain In demand and a further appreciation In quotations for cotton on renewed reports of damage to the crop."
