At the Hamo timo au active buBiuosa wrh transacted, the apeculative element of the trade tuking hold quite freely. Tl:e principal causo of I the prevaüing weakiiean was the heavy deliveriea - on líouday and the Hucceeding two dayn - oí' property on February contráete. Shorts had made liberal proviniona for their trades ou a declining market, aud wheu their contracta nmtured they wero ready to malte their deliveries. As had been antieipated, tho partiea having grain coming to theni on contracta did uot want to recoive puy íor and enrrv the property, and their only alternativo tuto forcé the grain on tbe market and aell out, or truuBÍer the tradea to March. Of courae the heavy offeringa weakened the market and wërê the principié eauae of the decline. The umial governing influences were alBO of an uufuvorablo tenor, and calculated to atiH.ii4 in producing & weak feeling. The New York and Liverpool advicea were indicative of unlavorable market and lower prices, consequenüy there iva nci encouragement for ahipperrt to do nnythiiig in the way of buying. Tho receípte wero lighter, owing largely to Ihe prevaüing inclemont weather. Tliw fact had no influonce, however, as the atocks in fitoro are atill quite large, and thero ia, of course, no probability of any reduction until after the opening of navigation. Spring wheat declined about 21ÍC corn lV(ñil5c, oats ?ic, and barley about G(t8c. Toward the clono of the week an " iruproved iceliug waa shown all ! round, and a filight reaction wa8 shown in i prices. Bpeculatorfl had generaïly Hettled thoir i February trados, and were ready for a new deal. Itegarding tlio future of the leading marketa npeculators differ wideiy in their opinions, and both parties are backinfi their espressed etatementn by liberal trading. It is generally j ceded that wheat -nill not go mucli lower ; that : corn ia too high, and that oats will mie lirra. These are onlv. Hpeciüatoi"' views, however, and are not based on auy positivo statement of factH and ligares ; although it i diih'cult to see how any cf the grainn named can nell higher unlesfi the markets at the East improve matcrially.
