FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL Stocks, Money, Exchange, Bonds, Grain, Cotton, Provisions, Etc. New York, March 8.?The stock mar? ket was dull most of the day, except lit the closing, when there was consid? erable activity. The Interest largely centered in the Coalers, which made some handsome advances, and a num? ber of the specialties went up over a point, while fractional advances were the rule In many other stocks. The published report of a combination of practically all the coalers was the ground for the strength in those pro? perties. Much interest attached to the declaration of the regular dividends in Sugar. The market watted until it was announced and then moderate activity appeared. Sugar, after opening higher and then losing more than the earlier gain, rose about four points for the day. The large payment ?which the Government was to make to Southern Pacillc on tho claim allowed by Con? gress lent strength to that property. Tho expectation of favorable legisla? tion lifted Conso...
