Manchester, Dee. 28.—The Guardian says:
“The market was firm, and prices unaltered.
The demand was poor, and business trilling.
The inquiry from Eastern markets has fallen off
decidedly, and as producers, with cheaply
bought raw material, are tiecoming raver, mer
chants find a difficulty in placing even the re
duced orders they have in baud. Manufacturers
complain strongly of the narrowness of margins
and toe impossibility of seeuri.ig new contracts
at prices sufficieut io cover the recent advance
in yarns. As the latter are very linn, manufac
turers' prospects are not bright. Meanwhile
the strong appearance of cotton is encouraging
spiuuers to hold oiit for extreme rates, even
where not compelled by their jioMt on regard
ing coul racta. Little has been done in exjiort
yarns departments. Spinners refuse all offers
tielow Friday’s full rates. The demand is light
all round. Heavy cloths are quiet, but prices
are slightly hardening.”

Green & Co.’s renortoo cotton futures savs:
“ i lie market has been pretty active, and the
ordinary monotony was bruxen tty sharp and
unexpected fluctuations, but in the end there
was uo evidence that new interests hud come,
and most of the dealing was local. At the out
set matters looked strong, wit h 3®4 points gain
secured, when a rumor was spread that the
German Emperor had suddenly uied. This sent
the market off on a perpendicular drop of about

Tilden, Cleveland and Hill-Gossip
About their. creonal Peculiarities.
Of the twenty-eight gentlemen who have
beeuGovernorsef Nexv York only three have
been bachelors, says an Albany letter to the
New York Graphic. In all the first ninety
seven years of her existence, the state in
deed barrcii out the liaohelor element from
her executive chair entirely. Indeed, the
records show that down to a very !ate
tints the preference of the people ran not
only to married men, but in some instances
to men rather overly married, tlov. Marey
was married t wice and Gov. Yates three
times. Samuel J. Tilden was the lb st of the
bachelor brood that had the audacity to
ventme on the duties of Governor.
But when a break into the chief magis
tracy by bachetordom was once made, it
bad and still continued to have a steady
preference. Three bachelors have occupied
the gubernatorial mansion since
Sam Tilden began bis reform career. Two
of these have been elected to the presi
dency, and there is a gaping chasin appar
ently wai iug hi that office tor the third in
course ol time. Tiiat one did not g t Into
the presidential chair does not break t his
record in favor of bachelor Governors.
Martin Van llureu, the only other President,
who had been Governor of New York, was a
w idower, so that the strange fact remains
that no New York Governor with n wife
has ever been elected President of the
UmW States, besides the other fact that
no New York man, Governor or otherwise,
ever entered upon the presidency with a
wife mon his hands, both Millard Fillmore
and Chester A. Arthur being widowers
when they became preddents. This may pre
vent Gov. Hill gening married; it may
throw a false and factitious glamour over
bacholordom, but these are the facts.
Samuel J. Tilden was the most gallant of
the bachelor governors. The old gentleman
xvas a great admirer of the ladies. He had
a fancy especially for blooming young girls.
There was aiw’ays an all' of some early dis
appointment about him. If good Mrs. Pel
ton, his sister, could have had her say she
would have told a beautiful story of why
he was a bachelor, blit the Governor kept
her silent. Often the anxiety to tell it
would show itself in Mrs. Pelton. She
would dgli most sig uflcautly at times,
when teal's, otherwise unaccounted for,
would appear in the old gentleman's eyes.
But the secret xvas profoundly kept. The
love episodes with the Bt. Louis belle and
with the New Orleans lady, to whom the
Governor left SIOO,OOO, never completely
swept away the cherished sentimentalism of
his early life. At nli his receptions Gov.
Tilden took a great comfort in talking with
pretty young sprigs of girls. He made a
dozen propos. Is to young visitors at these
gatherings which might have held good in a
court of law if the young ladies hail chosen
to sue. He was a great hau 1 for horseback
ruling, but he wound rein lip ins steed at auy
moment to pay courtly deference to some
lovely woman who might bow to fcim. Tue
great Governor, indeed, hud a heart fitted
for softer scenes than those which entered
most into his life. Gov. Tilden was the
first Governor to occupy the house which is
now the official residence of the Governors.
He rented it for SIO,OOO and a few months
after ho left i! the thrifty owner sold it
entire to the State for $45,000. It was the
first expensive guliernatorial residence that
Governors here had had. Gov. Hoffman
had rooms at the old hotel known ax Con
gress hail. Gov. IJix had an ordinary
brown-stone across the way from the
capitol, anil some ancient Govi rnors e,n
Ixiarded. It remained for the first bachelor
Governor to introduce palatial housekeeping
on a gorgeous scale mto the domestic life of
the chief magistrate, and the present
bachelor Governor has even expanded on
Grover Cleveland was the next bachelor
Governor, and be carried his bachelor habit s
right into the palatial mansion, just as he
would have gone to a bachelor friend’s apart
meets without brushing bis feet at the door
or putting out hi half smoked cigar. There
was a very prevalent bachelor air during
his time at tUh mansion, until towards the
close, when a delicate influence grew into
his life. The nation as represented by the
Democratic committee of no. ification ap
pointed 10 inform him of Ins nomination as
I’reident in ISB4, scented the influence,
when, it discovered near him, as he received
the message of the eomrnittee, un Inr a
gre-.t Kink of dowers on the mantelpiece,
ho i harming Jliss Folsom and her mother,
jt was Ham Randall himself who, at that
gathering, in reply to tome comment said:
•'We’re going to elect this time. We are
going to put that charming girl into the
White Hone.” And it un> Col. Hooker of
Mississippi who immediately responded,
“iiandall, you’ve got i,. hat’s just how
it is. He’s alter that girl and bo’ll run like
a whitehead.” It may be, why not, that
M.ss Folsom was a prize In that race as well
as the White House. Such things have
The present bachelor occupant of the
Governor's mansion has boon there three
year- already and has added to ad em
bei i hed the place on a scale of luagnif
iceuce which should portend a desire
for house-keeping with ail its comforts
aud concomitants. Yet there isn't tbe
slightest trace of the eiotic senti
ment visible any where in David B. Hill’s
composition. He snows no truce of te id r
sentiment. With troops of pretty girls who
come on excursions and look through the
executivecnamtier and tike a glance at him
no is ill at et e. He hasn’t got used to it
even yet. Some Governors would chuck
them under the chin, but he won't. He will
never boa ki sug maniac like Gen. BUer
man. He seldom has any receptions at the
mansion where ladies are invited—seldom
any. indeed, of any kind. He is all intent

tire to widen agenui ie love episode would
