The advantages of tie Cincinnati Softli Ern railway to the Grain interests have been More Manifest during the past year Thongthi it has Sii own itself mainly in receipts. During july and August of tic late year there were received Over the Road 313.198 bushels of wheat which is about equal to the aggregate receipts for the whole year Beall Iii Ilious of Public c it a Vej Anoe years ago. With the 0 Nii Igor the Road through to the Gulf states that i Here must be an important i Icrea it in in the shipment of Grain in that direction there seems no room to doubt. At present the movement of Grain from Cincinnati to the South by railroads is very Small the total shipments of All kinds into states South of the Ohio River for the Calendar i ear of 1878, As near As the same can by ascertained having been less than 100,-000 hit Shell. There Isa great future for the Grain business of this cite but it will not come by Chance. It need Here not merely a a the same vigor which has made it what it is but the largest Acconio Dalfons the cheapest methods and the a must Freedom of transit consistent with Public safety.

It was however deficient in acre ii e in some parts the extremely Low Price of the previous year liar Iii discouraged Farmers from raising it As hich there was some appreciation.

In a Perikl of eighteen years that presents a lower average. The in Oais at to Lii City during the past year has in volume varied a Louie from the Prev Imis year. The Market we As Well supplied and Liere was a fair demand at the prices which were very Low. We Hile the receipts show a slight falling off the shipments have materially increased. The aggregate receipts were 1,398,572 bushels compared Wiki 1,467,010 in the previous year and the shipments j5,307, in comparison with 146,452.

From some districts the Quality seems fair while from others the Grain has an odor about them that affects their value. All Horree in the belief that the crop never entirely recovered from i lie effects of t Erv weather which preceded Harvest although the yield at lost turned out much better than was anticipated. There a Good yield of Rye in 1878, and our Market has been Well supplied. The receipts with the exception of 1875-76, have been the largest we have Ever had having been 489.780 bushels. In 1877-78 were 374.637. The shipments have been 153,859, in Coni Farison Vith 125,018 in the previous year. The Quality of the crop of 1878 was Only fair. Prices were very Low.

If Cincinnati audiences have not al ready made the acquaintance of Emma Tiu Ruby they Are Stion Likely to for it is not presumable that this gifted song Bird is Girt a into retirement after the con quest of Europe and while her voice is i have known of her for in Ita perfection.

The Spring Barley did nut in general malt Well and was inviting than to Sun so that this also militated against the extent of the , Tipiere was some Zenada As Well As Ali Forthia liar lev in the Market but nut Large quantities. Tie total receipts for the year were 1,180,652 bushels in c mar Feon wit i 1,597,481 in the previous year. Tow shipments however show a material increase having been 264.648 bushels compared with 23, il7. The increase in the outward movement is Traci Able to an unusual demand from localities that previous Lydiate drawn very Little from this City. Chicago Milwaukee St. Louis Julum bus Cleveland and Philadelphia enticed by tie unusually Good Quality of the fall Barley Drew to some extent on the Barley of this District thus not Only increasing our slip Wnenta and keeping prices higher than they otherwise Rould have been but also drawing directly on the sources of Mir Supply and so far diminishing our receipts. Though the Market opened Low in the summer of 1878, fall Barley Selling Early at 50 prices steadily advanced until Early in october when the same Grade was quote Ilat a 15@1 18 per Bushel. These Price were not nil Inta tied Durer to the fe-ni4d>9ler of Trio Winter the Price it innately sell chg Down to about $1 05@1 10 for no. 2 fall and remaining without Mic i fluctuation until in the March following when there was a decline of about 10 cents per Bushel.

The average quotation for no. 2 fall for the year was a 00.5 compared with 52 cents ill the previous year which we us appear to be a great disparity. These figures however have to be received in the i lit of facts of two years Hotuj crying Quality the Barley of the past year having been singularly Good and that of 1877-78 inferior. When the new crop made its appearance the old was Well cleaned out. In contrast with the previous year when encouraged by the extraordinarily Low prices Brewers wer Ltd moved to malt freely and carry inner Tolian c Immon into the new year. The fall crop of 1879 shortened by the very dry weather of the Early summer which at one time seemed to threaten it with destruction in Ohio and Kentucky a timely rain came to its and brought comparative safety but the crop was still somewhat shortened the Grain is sound but not so Bright As in the previous Vear. The Farin Ere who had made up their minds for higher prices than the prevailing were reluctant to Send in heir Barley and receipts consequently have been Light.

This however was not maintained for prices thereafter shrank until the improved demand set in wow of Chirac mrizek the close of the commercial year.

Tiie Quality of the crop of 1879, As far As it has made its appearance is Good and this applies to All the districts Wei ice Are in any w a tributary to this City. The average for no 2 Rve for the year was 63.70 cents per Bushel compared with 59 cents in 1877 78, 74.16 in 1876-77, 74.4 in 1875-76, $1 05.8 in 1874-75, 92.9 in 1873-74, and 75.8 in 1872-73, there has been no year since 18g1c2 when prices Limaye ruled so Low.

But now the City has encroached the neighbourhood and tenements n Xiii disfigure its . For years miss has been a half orphan. At present she has a Mother and two Sisters living and the four Are devotedly attached to one another. She first discovered that she could sing while in attendance As a girl upon the sunday school of Rev. Or.

By and by when the new Church was built on Bedford venue and she grew older her voice attracted attention and she was Given a place in the choir. Then Plymouth Church Dis the growth in the business in wheat it Cincinnati Whitti was so marked in the preceding year has continued through the past year the receipts having been 3,834,-722 bushels compared with 3,40.4,113 in the preceding year Ami the Shiomi Eliis 3.383,-387, ill comparison with 2,867.082 in 1877-78.

It is a somewhat noticeable fact too As showing the steady growth from season to season of the wheat Trade Here that this gain 73 per cent of the entire gain for tie commercial year. If to these Iii Rex As to receipts and shipments were added the through freights not embraced therein it would swell the Here to the following imports 7,767,722 bushels in comparison with 5,306,873 in the preceding year and the shipments to 7,316,387 bushels compared with 4.7g8,-842. The attentive observer can not fall a it see what an important relation Cincinnati sustains to the Winter wheat growing districts and Liow each year More clearly defines her p sit Iun As the natural granary for this part of the great crops of the West. It should not merely finish encouragement t a the Grain Trade of the City but should also secure the largest facilities and most economical arrangements for the purpose of making this the future great Winter wheat Market of the court to.
