An Incendiary Arrested and Very Strong Proofs of HU GaUt Found. NASHUA, N. H April For some time past there have been numerous at- tempts made to burn the extensive door, sash and blind factory of Gregg On several occasions the de- struction of the plant has been pre- vented by the timelj discovery of flames by the watchman.

Dun A Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: With larger tonnage in motion than it any previous year at the same season: a larger volume of currency in active circulation; larger payments through clearing houses by nearly ten per cent.; larger imports and exports and larger domestic production in agriculture, in iron and steel, leather and boot and manufacture, the country has en- tered upon the second quarter of the year with yreat hopefulness. Trade throughout the country seems gradually improving. Yet there are unfavorable symptoms which do not disappear, but grow more threatening. Several fail- ures with unpleasant features have dis- turbed confidence. The coal trade and the woolen manufacture do not improve. Winter wheat has sustained some in- jury from the unnatural season. Pro- posed tariff legislation causes uncer- tainty in many branches of trade, which is likely to increase with prolonged de- lay. The wars of railroads grow more threatening to investors At the same time labor disturbances begin to men- ace important industries. The iron industry has advanced too expected setback has be- gun. Tbe production for the quarter is estimated at tons, against last year, and stocks on hand are accumulating. Prices are lower. The business in bar iron is better, with no change in price; plates are moving at very satisfactory prices, and structural iron is not as active as makers wish. The threatened strikes in building trades will affect this branch. Coal is still stagnant The speculative markets have been more active, with a higher range of prices. The average of all prices for commodities is but a shade higher than a week ago, some manufactured prod- ucts having declined. Reports from other cities are more generally favor- able than usual. At tbe South, outside the direct effect of the flapds, trade is good and less time is asked than usual. The monetary situation does not threaten. The exports of products are falling off a little, while imports con- tinue large, so that in the absence of foreign purchases of securities, gold ex- ports may occur, but for some time to come the money market is likely to be well supplied. Interior markets are easier. Complaints of slow collections are less frequent GKAND KEVIEW Or Regular Troops and MUltla by Presi- dent Presentations. WASHJCSGTOX, April 12. President Harrison, accompanied by the members of his Cabinet and the delegates to the Pan-American conference, reviewed the regular troops and the District National Guard on the monument grounds yester- day afternoon.

At ttie conclusion of the review the Pan-American delegates drove to the Arlington Hotel, where the ladies of the Silk Culture Association of Phila- delphia presented to each country rep- resented in the conference a beautiful flag, made from silk grown in the Cnited States. _______________ They Will Construct a Silver BUL WASHTXGTOJT, April ative Dingley. of Maine, chairman pro tern, of the Republican caucus of the House, has appointed a committee con- sisting of Messrs.
