Rnssians were especially affected, audliave fallen 2 per cent.

The slock market was unusually dull throughout the entire day. and the result of the transactions of very little importance. Trading retained its ugtial professional character, with an almost total lack of feature. The course of prices was very irregular, but fluctuations, except iti one or two stocks, were confined with In fractional limits. Some depression was caused In the early trading by unexpectedly low figures from London. Humors throwing doubt upon the financial status of some of the parties to the Baltimore and Ohio d*-al caused some feeling of uncertainty, and the assertion that tho government would advertise forthe purchase of bonds in the near future had a stimulating in fluence upon prices. The manipulation of YVheeling and Like Erie, by w hich its prices was depressed nearly 10 per cent., lollowed by a partial recovery, had no influence whatever on the general list. Manhattan regained part or its lute losses, but movements in tho remainder were generally without significance. The open ing was quite irregular, though changes from Saturday's figures were for small fractions, exec ~ in YVhSelh.g and Lake Erie, which was down 76 per cent. The market was (lull but firm in the early trading, and few slocks dis played decided Strength early. The advantage, however was generally lost, before noon, by which time YVheeling and Like Erie had reached its lowest lioint. The market was alternately heavy and firm within very narrow limits, and beyond rallies in Wheeling and l-ttke Erie and Ytanhattan, the afternoon s trading was entirely featureless. The close was generally heavy at or near the lowest figures reached. Notwith standing this, however, a majority of the stocks show sliarlit advance* compared with Satin* duyM fiS nt" The net loss in Wheeling and I hko Erie is 8% per cent Tho day s transac tioii* aoc-regated 111.660 shares.

Green & Cos. s report on cotton futures savs: ‘ There was some labored dealing in contracts to-day, but the bulk of business was the result of a pressure to realize, and the heavy decline shown on old crop, amounting to some 20(330 points at one time. The weakness of Liverpool and the forward condition of the new crop, with a general holding off of the home trade, were the starting influences, and as the market de clined, increased offerings on stop orders added to the weight bv bringing out and liquidat ng long cotton. New Orleans was also a heavy seller here, aud altogether matters were much depressed. The new crop was not quite so much depressed, but lost about 10 points on the extreme decline. At the close t here was a small recovery, but with an unsettled feeling.” Galveston, July 11.—Cotton nominal; mid dling 10%c; net receipts 10 bales, gross 10; sales none; stock 3,307 bales.

Chicaoo, July 11.—Tho wheat market opened actively and with a showing of greater strength, partly due to higher prices on the New A ork market. August started %c higher at 73Uc\ The Saturday talk of a decrease in the visible supply was continued this morning, with more or less of bullish effect, at least enough to holl August up to 73%<£78%c, where it remained with a good deal of persistency. Alter the first hour or so of the session local interest in the market rather died out and the speculative crowd thinned materially, but nevertheless kept up a semblance of trading. The visible supply, ns announced, proved a decrease of only 1,426,- OUO bushels in wheat, which, though less than was expected, was still enough to hold values steady and firm. During the last half hour sellers were pretty free about offering wheat and prices gradually eased hack to 72%£/>73c, where the market closed. Corn was only mod erately active, but a fair volume of trade is re ported. Early in the day there was a fair de mand from local shorts and the market ruled quite firm. The opening was %<&%c higher than the closing figures of Saturday. After fluctuating some time at this price the advance was lost. August sold at 30%e at the opening and 36%®80%e at the close. Oats were quiet. August ranged between 25%c and 25)4c. Pro visions were more active, with a decidedly stronger feeling. Outside orders to purchase short ribs, with considerable demand for the same article on the part of local shorts, under the Impression that the market is oversold for August and September deliveries, aud that con tracts have centered in the bauds of a prominent operator, was the main support of the market in a general way, and caused a sharp advance in price*. Other articles sympathized to some extent, with this movement, and prices were slightly advanced, with only moderate trading. August short ribs started at $7 70, sold up to $7 87% and closed at $7 80. September ribs opened at $7 87%, sold up to $B, and closed at $7 90. August lard opened 2%c higher at $6'55 and eased off to the closing figure, $0 52%. fash quotations to-ilay ruled as follows: Flour in better demand but unchanged.
