the jobbing trade owing to an in
crease in the demand for general
merchandise from interior points.
Business is however done on a
very conservative basis, credits are
more closelv scrutinized, and as far

prices tend upward. Receipts of
sugar have been very heavy, but
the maiket for refined grade is
without change. Metals, oil, case
goods and quicksilver are dull at
unchanged quotations. Rice is in
