CnicAao , March 8.-Special [ Telegram to
the hir.s.J-Tho week under- review has been
destitute of marked cluinges In finance or
trade. Money is less freely called for than
usual at the advent of spring , because there
is less grain and provisions to carry than at
corresponding dates In recent years. The
accumulatIon of grain at other poInts , that
largely depend iii'oii ChIcago bankers for
funds , arc also much smaller than at this
date in former years. The result is seen In a
comparatively cheap loan market considered
with a year ago. Desirable customers sure
being freely supplied at 534@634 per cent on
call and sixty days' loans , based on gilt edged
names and coliatorala , and 73 llOt cent for
good to just. faim' signntures. In sonic
instances as bow as 5 jior cent.
has been accepted in ( alley security from
large borrowers. Now York exchange has
ruled quiet at 25c discount per $1,000 to l'ar
between banks. Foreign echainge was unit
and higher , duo to the small exports of pro-
ducc and merchandise and the large Imponts
of foreign goods. Shippers' sixty days' docu.
mnentary sterling bills on London were quoted
at $4.8134.849 , The New York stock
market has been dull , anul the average stock
broker In Wall &treet Is said to ho the bluest
individual in tIme Umlited States. There is ,
lii fact , nothing to induce the public to buy.
hence few outsiders are now trading. Tue
jobbimig trade Is steadily' Improving , and
although there is an absence of rush , the
distribution of dry goods during the week
was liberal. Clothing , boots and shoes ,
hardware , staple and mniscc'ilnneous grains ,
and other leading lines of goods sold freely ,
although trade in a large section of country
traversed by the Burlington road was prevented -
vented from buying by the strike of engineers -
eers anti firemen. Merchants report ccl-
lections fair for the season , amid but for thu
uneasy feeling regarding time labor situation ,
the lusing QUtIQQk might beegarded as
No very marked changes have occurred in
the markets during the wecic mis compared
with the closing quotations noted in our Inst
i'eckIy review , with the exception of corn ,
which showed some independence and do-
vclopd considerable strength. In fact , all
markets after a temporary weakness
regained their individuni declines , but there
was no special changes , with the one excop.
tion of cormi , to note. As cnmulared with tiur
closing quotations in the last weekly
review wheat closed 3c higher , corn
1SJc iigher oats 340 higher , mess
pork 234c higier , lard 734c lower anti short
rib sides 5c'lower. Trading has been moutei'-
ate in wheat , rallier active in corn , fair in
oats and only moderate in hog products. 'ruac
Influences brought. to light have not been of
a character to nmaterially affect speculation
in most of tim markets one way or time other ,
hence operators have been inclined to wait
for some new featutes on which to base spec-
ulation. Cr01) news have not formed ammy liii-
portamit feature. Thus far mInces have been
more or less conflicting , which Is usually
the case at this season of the year , Warm
and spring-lilco weather is awaited to decide
the actual condition of the growing wheat.
European aavlces have quoted a quiet feel-
lag for wheat and lower Prices for corim.
home markets ruled slightly lowerbut closed
rather strong. On both wheat and corn the
movement has been smaller. Reccipta of
wheat in the northwest have fallen off ,
which , it was claimed , was partly due to
fresh snow blockades , In the interior wheat
districts the movement Is light. At Chicago
the receipts of grain have been small and
this tvas partIally attributed to the strike of
time engineers and firemen on the Chicago ,
Burlington & Quinoy , which has moved very
little freight this week. Shipping demand
has been very fair for all grains ,
with fair milling demand for lower grades
of wheat. Considerable corn and some
wheat has been bought to go to store , most
of which , it is clammed , is taken by elevator
Proprietors. The export movement of grain
from the seaboard has been only moderate.

St. Nicholas : In the early years of
this century , when there VCL'O slave insurrections -
surrections in the West Indies , and wars
for indopcmidcnco in Mexico , Central
America amid South America , many people -
plo were driven from their homes In
these regions and came to Now Orleans
as aplaco of refuge. Among them were
two brothers , Pierre amid Jean Lafitto.
They were Frenchmen born In Bayonne ,
but they bad lived for several years in
the West Indies. Both wore tall , handsome -
some men , but Jean had the stronger
character. For a time they carried on
the trade of blacksmnithing. Their shop
stood on St. Philip street , beticon
Bourbon and Dauphin , It was pulled
down only a few years ago. Bold and
enterprising in disposition and of coin-
manding presence , the two brothers
were fitted by nature to be leaders of
men. Jean , especially , was of an tip-
pearanco so striking that strangers ,
meeting him on time streets , turned for
a second look at him.
At first , they wem'o only the ngcnts'ln '
New Orleans for smugglers who brought
merchandise and slaves into the bays
and bayous along the Louisiana coast ;
but it was not long before they became
the chiefs of the most powerful organization -
ation of lawless men that over existed
in this country. In 1810 , they made
their headquarters on the islande at
the entrance of time Bay of lIam'atam'ia ,
where they built a fort and village.
They obtained from the republic of
Carthugcna , In South America , then at
wail , with Spain for Its Independence ,
letters of marquo which authorized
theni to capture Spalnish vessels whet-
ever found. They fitted out. anti armed
fast-sailing schooners , which voro the
terror of the gulf. According to the
common belief at the time , these vessels
were lirntcs , which did not-hesitate to
pick up any merchant-ship they could
overhaul , no matter what flag it might
carry ; but the Latlttes denied these reports -
ports , and insisted that they were hon-
orabbo ps'ivmtteorsmnen , only attacking
the ships of Spain. as , under the laws of
nations , their letters of marquo gave
them the right to do , That they vere

to arrest Jomuim as he was passing through
a bayou with a boat-load of smuggled
goods. A party of custom-house oflicors
attacked him ( rein time shore , There
was a fight , and Jeani and his crew beat
off thicliassailants. . Afterward , Jean
sent a polite letter to the captain ol time
