sit'ed qi -stion that our receilpts wIill not exceed
those- of last year, say 110 to 112,000 bales. Other
Florida Ports will receive less thanti last year, and
we think 135 to 140,0010 bales a full estimate for
Florida. For thlie week ending Feb. 27, tIhe le-
ceipts at Columbus were onlt 380 bales, against
1,256 bales corresponding week last year.
On referring to our comparative tables on the
opposite page, it will be seen that the total receipts
since the 1st of Sept. exhibit an increase as conm-
pared with last year of*43,571 bales. The exports
to Great Britain during the same period show a
deficiency of 124,949 bales; those to France of
7,264 bales: to other Foreign Poits there is an ex-
cess of 23,999 Ibales, and to U. S. Northern Ports
*an excess of 32,051 bales. The stock on hand inH
all the U. S. Ports exceeds the same period last
year 127,018 bales.
Ve have this morning New Orleans and Mobile
Prices Cur'ent of the 24th. ulit. They show a hea-
vy fall off ia the receipts at both those ports as
compared with last year during the three prece-
ding days. Below will be found a. statement of
the excess and deficit at all the ports, made tip
since the receipt of the late New Orleans and Mo-
bile accounts. It exhibits an excess of receipts
over last year of only 22,148b1) ales, instead of 43,571
bales as appears by our tabular statement on the
next page.

and Saturday llie market renimained in a very'quiet
state, about 400 bales eacli day changing hiands.-
The Catibria's accounts reached us on Sunday,
but lie circulars and letters not coming t hand,
there was no disposition to operate yesterday, only
one lot of 68 bales having been disposed of at about
old prices. The sales of lie week amount to
1,974 bales. We make no change in our quota-
tions, they being as near the actual sales as it is
possible to quote. ( -.

RE\IARKS ON THIE MARKET.
FoP., 'tIE PAST 'WEEK.
We are unable to note any improvement in .flie
general bus-iness transactions of the past week
The receipts ofcotton hIave been unprecedently light
for the season, while the sales have been on near-
ly as limited a scale. The growing conviction
that the crop will be very short seems to be produ-
cing a rapid reaction in the prices of our principal
staple, the sales yesterday exhibiting an advance
of jc. on our quotations of last week.
The excess olf receipts over last year is now re-
duced, according to our comparative tables on' ilhe
opposite page, to 6,104 bales, being 8,836 whales less
than last week. The exports to Great Britain are
155,585 bales less than last year; to France 23 386
bales less; to other foreign.ports they exceed last
year 19,773 bales, and to U. S. Nortliern Ports,
14,977 bales. The stock on hand in all the IJ. S.
Ports exceeds the same period last year 148,196
bales. In thle interior receiving places ihe stocks
on the 1st of .March, so far as we have been able
to ascertain, were considerable less than last sea-
son. At Augusta and Hambnurg and Macon they
were 52,328 bales, against 72,597 butales same liite
last year, being 20,269 bales less.
Cor'roN.-The receipts daring ilhe past week
amount to 668 bales, and the exports to 6,191.
leaving the stock on hand, including all on ship-
board iot cleared 33,971 bales, against 27,849
bales, same time last year.
The week preceding the one utinder review there
was but a very limited business transacted in
cotton, the sales of the week only amout.ting to
803 bales, thlie market closing at Ic. advance on
most grades. On Tuesday morning we received
via Columbus late dates from New York adJ
Charleston, advising of a reaction, in those mar-
kets, with an advance in prices of to "c. These
advices together with confirmatory accounts of
very light receipts in all the interior markets and
decreased estimates of the crop, produced a rather
better feeling toward tlie staple, and sales were
made during the day of 257 bales at an advance of
4c. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday t:.d Satuiday
ihe market remained in a very quiet state, the sales
limited to small lots amounting in tie aggregate
to only 376 bales, generally at the advance above
noticed. Saturday night we were again put in
possession of late dates from other markets, by an
arrival from Columbus, which beiag considered
still more favorable, the market opened yesterday
with an active inquiry, which re-sulted in the sale
of 644 bales at a further advance of c.," making
the. whole advance of the week c. The sales of
the week foot up 1,277 bales, a portion of which
it is thought has been bought on speculation We
advance our quotations to conform as near as pos-
sible to actual sales-we have heard of some lots
having been sold at still higher figures. Qualities
,above middling fair are exireinely scarce, and ihe


prices of such grades are governed in a measure
by thte necessities of purchasers.

FaREIGoTrs.-Sincc our last review foreign freights
have declined, 1700 bales having been engaged by
British vessels at 7-8d. which is a reduction of
1-Sd. from previous rates. Coastwise rates remain
Siclihanriged, but musters find it quite difficult to
take engagements at the cuiirent rate, tlie aniount
of cotton ofletirtg for Northern Ports being light,
arid shippers disposed to hold off.
