An Attempt to Cmth Oat Competition by on a Small oipltBtcd Crash. NEW YORK, Sept Theflrm of Saw- yer, Wallace Co., cotton, coffee and provision commission merchants of No. IS Broadway, have assigned for the ben- efit of creditors, without preferences. The assignment was a surprise on all tbe and on Wall street. The cause is tho losses the. firm have sus- tained in their foreign option business. The house was established in by Samuel A. Sawyor, who came to this caty from Tannessee. The business gradually mcraabcu until it had as- sumed proportions, its rruni- flcatiofis extendin-j to all pcrtions of the globo. The firm dealt cxtonslvely in cotton, tobacco, coffee, produce and provisions and were prominent factors in all tho large suhomos and de.-.ls in such com- modities. In n. tobacco ayndicata unloaded on them an immense amount of low grades which they held for some iimB before they were able to dispose of it It was supposed that they had been making money, though at times they bavo lost from their syndicate dealings.

Mr. Wallace says the cause of tho fail- ure was the result of the efforts made by the firm to squelch competition in the commission business by bus- iness with European speculators with- out a marffin and at a In the pork doal last January the firm is said to have sustained losses of on this account. Tho claims for these losses asrainst Buropoan specula- tors are a-nong- the- nominal assets. It is estimated that the total assets will reach amonjf which are in- cluded the claims in the pork deal. In 1SS2 the firm made attempt to oornor corn in the New York market, but made a failure of it. The tirtn hive Immense holdings of merchandise in the various products in which they dealt, but in an export and import way. It will, however, take time to realize on these holdings and the general opinion is that the assignment W.T.S made tc limit the loss on speculative? options. CONGRESSIONAL.
