Shorts wero alarmed and anxioua to provide for tïieir contracta. Ilowever, the market has agaiu beon weak, and values receded to inaide prices. The decline waa duo partially to lens favorable adviecji and the increaaing stock in store, tlie receipta last week being alxint 134,000 bu in oxoess of the ahipments. 'l'lie main reason for the weakness was the absence of t!io "buli" movemont, epeculators ahowing but l'ttle confidenco in the future of tho trade, and allowing values to graduallv recode. Corn, oats, rye and barley were dull and eaay throaghout, the offeringa, although not particnlarly large, being in excesa of the denuuid. Becèipts invariably in excess of shipments. The outlook for the future of the grain trade i very uncertain, and Bpeculators ai-e more than uaually cautious in tradhig, showing a disposiüon to hold off and await future developments.
