V* BRADSTREET. The Business Report For the Past Week—> Failures. New York, Dec. 29.—BradstreeVs, in its review of the week, says: Special tele^ grams to BradstreeVs report a universal!^ quiet movement on the part of staple goods, not unusual at this season. Christmas ob- servances at home and abroad cut the week down practically to four days,which, with semi-annual stock takings, served to still further check operations. Funds in- cline to increase firmness at the larger centers, owing to the customary heavy re- quirements for January settlements. But this has in no way restricted the volume of the better class of com- mercial discounts offering. Seasonably cooler weather has prevailed part of the week, and merchants at most of the lead- ing points of distribution look confidently for an active revival of business early in 18HÍ). The improvement in the railroad situa- tion gives a stronger tone to stock specula- tion at New York, and an advancing mar- ket is generally anticipated...
