appropriated for the payment, of the di

free coinage democrats.
The senate spent four hours Wednes

All the pepers relating to the resolu-

still overwhelmed with grief, but with
that courage for which ghe is noted, con

friends and relatives. To her the loss
indeed a sad blow—the lover of her
youth and the consort of her declining
years lies cold in the embrace of death.
Her feelings must indeed be sad.

mestic trade continues larger than last
year, but exro*V* are decidedly smaller
from New York; in ’breo weeks of Jan
uary $8,592,861 below t-.6 same weeks
last year. As imports are meaawb'.’i®
very heavy for two weeks of January,
$8,919,130 more than, last year, the pros
pects of further gold exports canses no
turprse. 'Ihere is much hesitation re
garding the action of congress on vari
ous measures and the uncertainty about
silver purchasis. The repeal prospects
of the aDti-option bill and the defeat of

the markets and trade to some extent.
