THE SAN FRANCISCO MARKETS.

Tho National Mortgage Company havo received the following r.dvico from their Pan Franciico agents:—" The large stocks of fruits carried over from the 1888 packing, the extreme high price of sugar which has prevailed for a long timo, and will undoubtedly boll during the remainder of tho packing season, and the apathy of our large buyers in the Eastern States to contract for future delivery, have had a tendency to greatly lessen the pack this season. We are positive that not over 50 per cent, of the fruit pack in 1888 has been packed this season thus far. This will of courfo later on tend to exceedingly low stocks and an active demand and higher prices. Apricots to-day are exceedingly firm it Idol 50c to Idol 60c. The peach crop does not promise well as to quantity. This remark regarding peaches will also apply to the largepeachseotionsintheEasternStates. Salmon remains in about the same position. The catch, however, on the Columbia River is the smallest of any year since the business assumed such large proportions. The packing on the Sacrament River has ceased, and the product has been disposed of at very fair prices. It is yet too early to give any definite information as regards the packing in Alaska. During the past two weeks, however, a much better feeling has prevailed, acd tho large holder have been able to realise in the Eastern States and England at remunerative prices'. We quote the market for future delivery as follows:—Alaska, Idol 30c to Idol 3?.'.5; Columbia, Idol (»7Jc to Idol 70c ; Sacrament. ldoHscto Idol 50c. Outside fall fiab, Idol 25c to Idol 35c, as to quality."
