6 MONEY AND COMMERCE. MONETARY. ’ Tuesday Evnrrmn, March 23, Loool fiuancoa and trado wore very quiet to day. Legitimate business was chocked by the Inclemency of tho weather, and tho speculators In grain wore largely dependent upon their; Im aginations for causes of fluctuation In tho prices of their respective specialties. Money continues In good supply, and borrowers who offer satls faojory credit or collaterals find no difllculty In getting all they avo entitled to at moderate rates of Interest. , , ■ ■ Now York ozohango is firm at 2Co per SI,OOO discount. Tho movement of currency In any direction is Jlght. COTTON, AND THE TRICE OP OOLD. Tho diminishing export and tho declining price of that groat factor in tho settlement of our foreign trade balance—cotton—begins to at tract general attention ns having an important hearing on the probnblo export and tho conse quent price of gold.- ■ Tho cotton crop of tho year ending Bopt. 1, 1871, was 4,847,000 bkloa, tho total valno of which was estimated at $203,110,000 in currency. Of this 0,106,742 halos woro exported, represent ing a gold value of $173,000,000, or equal to about ono-third of our total exports of domestic products during the fiscal year ending Juno 80, 1872. . The cotton crop of tho year ending Bopt. 1, 1872, was 2,974,851 bales, tho estimate valno or which hi currency, oa mado some mouths ago, Was $260,000,000. But tho riso In gold slnco Jan. 1. and tho do cliuo in tho currency prico of cotton, havo to gether contributed largely to diminish tho offoct of ootton exports in clearing off tho foreign bal ance of trado. Sinco Sept. 1, 1872, wo have ex ported 800,000 bales more cotton than dnringtho tamo period of the previous year. But owing to Iho lower price it has not cleared off foreign in debtedness in tho samo ratio ad last year. With gold now at 115, the currency prico of middling cotton In Now York is 19 cents, currency, per pound, whereas, ono year ago. with gold at 110, tho currency prico of middling cotton In Now York was from 22 to 28 cents in currency; tho ronldoclino intho gold prico as compared with last year being nearly 25 per cent. Without go ing into tho details of tho stock of cotton hold over each year in this country, wo havo tho two broad facts that tho crop of 1872 was 25 per cent smaller than thooropof 1871, and though a largo port of tho crop of 1872 had already been ex ported (say 1,000,000 hales) at higher prices than the samo quantity of tho crops or 1871. Tho re mainder of tho exportable surplus of tho crop of 1872 will not only bo smaller but will sell for a much lower prioo thou that of last year. In short, tho exportable surplus out of tho crop of 1872 will probably not not over $160,000,000 gold yaluo. say $23,000,000 loss in gold than tho ex portable surplus out of tho crop of 1871. - Tho offoct of this decrease in tho gold value of cotton exports will not he felt until later in tho bbason, say a month or two hence. ' Thus far it hasbeon put off by tho fact that tho crop of 1872 was marketed more rapidly than tho crop of 1871, tho total exports from Bopt. 1, 1872, to March 21, 1878, having been 1,735,18? bales, against- 1,436,087 bales in tho samo period of tho previous year. But it seems probable that tho deficiency both of quantity, and in tho aggregate gold valuo of the exportable aurplus of cotton .will oxerciao an important in fluence to increase tho export of gold during this 'spring and summer, in which enso tho prico of gold is llkoly to he higher during tho coming .summer than it has boon since 1608. MOVEMENT OF RANK DEPOSITS. Tho statement of tho associated banks of Boston for March 17 shows <m aggregate of $47,064,400 of deposits/against $53,035,700 on -March S. a decrease of $0,051,800 in fourteen .days. Tno associated banks of New York City showed an aggregate of $202,060,100 of deposits on March 1, against $100,085,000 on March .15, a decline of $5,830,000 in tho first half of the month. Tho Philadelphia banks maintain ed-thoir aggregate of $41,000,000 of deposits .during tho period abovo mentioned, but tho largo decline in deposits reflects tho stringency that . has prevailed in New York and Boston. Luring the period abovo mentioned, tho aggregate do ' posits of the banks of Chicago increased $1,000,- DOO or $2,000,000. TUB VOLUME OP GREENBACKS. Tho following shows the volume of greenbacks outstanding at the dates mentioned: Oct. 1,1873 |35G,000,000 Nov. 1, 1872 360,660,7(34 Dec. 1, 1873 358,051,260 fan. 1,1873 858,557,007 Feb. 1, 1873 358,013,830 March 1,1873 850,084,302 , March 18,1873 357,278,015 ’ March 24,1873 368,060,007 SHE BANK OF ENGLAND AND THE NEW YORK STEOD- LATOBB IN EXCHANGE. The London Times gives tho following expla nation of tho reasons for the groat and succes sive advances in tho Bank of England rate of discount last fall: Tbo aystom by which speculative inflation at Now York la kept up by borrowings on tho London money market was explained somo months ago. In tho au tumn of last year, at a time when gold might have been expected to bo remitted hither from America, the rato of exchange receded to a'point almost low enough to attract it from London. This was occasioned by a practice on tho part of some of tho loading financial firms In Now York of making loans to railway opera tors! by giving bills at CO days on their corre sponding houses In London, tho security ob tained from tbo parties thus accommodated consisting of railway stocks and bonds with a largo margin over current prices, while tho rato of Interest charged and tho stipulations as regards renewals wore at tho same time exceedingly onerous. The bills were at onco sold in Ne\y York by the borrowers, and then, In natural course, were transmitted to London for dis count, and the process might have been carried to enormous proportions but for the rapid advance which ensued in the Lank of England rato, and tho resolu tion of tho Directors to reject tho objectionable paper In all Instances where It could bo detected. Tor a time, however, tho system was materially checked, but tho comparative case of our money-market since tho beginning of -the year has led to Us revival on a grand scale, and according to some estimates a total of those ac commodation bills Is now afloat equal to about eight millions sterling. When the New York speculators are required, at tho end of sixty days, to repay the amounts with which they have been favored, they are liable to And (hat, while tho bills supplied to them brought only when sold at Now York, they must, at tho end of sixty days, pay UOjtf for sight drafts to close tho transaction, or plead for renewals on any terms which may be accorded them. In nil such affairs tho ultimate break-up can only be a question of time, and it will depend upon tho prudence of bank managers and shareholders as to the side of tho At lantic on which the consequences are to fall.—Loudon Tima, 10th.

Tho now Board of Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners woro on ’Change to-day. Thoy look and talk liko thorough-going men who want to tako a practical viow of tho situation, and act to tho best of thoir knowledge and ability. Thoy had no formal discussion, but talked freely with the members of our Board of Trado, represent ing all classes of operators. Most of those with whom thoy conversed seemed to ho impressed with tho belief that tho now Commissioners will do all thoy can to carry out tho law intelligently, and in such a way as to do as littlo injustice ns possible to any Individual or class. Of course the now Hoard can do but little till the Legislature bus decided what changes shall bo made in the present law. They propose to occupy the interval in getting posted, and find ing out the wants of tho grain interests in this city, as well as in the State at largo. The loading produce markets wore only mod erately active to-day, and grain was generally weak; notwithstanding the storm, which les sened receipts, and threatened to interfere with them for some time to como, as well as inter rupting planting for >tho coming crops. Tho heaviness of fooling was chiefly a consequence of largo stocks in store, and greater strength in water freights. Tho demand for dry goods', both staple and fanoy, was largo, notwithstanding tho unfavor able character of tho weather, and former prices woro firmly maintained. Interior merchants wore in liberal attendance, while tho volume of “mail orders” was fully os largo as ou tho preceding days of the week. Groceries woro again in active request, with no softening in prices except for sugars, which woro offering at a trifling concession. Coffees wore stronger, in consequence of a reported advance of }fo in Now York. . Syrup and spices also woro strong, with something of an upward tendency. There was nothing now in the butter market, good to choice grades continuing in good demand at full prices, whilo low grades woro neglected and weak. •’ Bagging was quiet, and cotton seamless goods wore less firmer, tho easier feeling being attributable to tho decline in tho raw material. Tho checao market was more quiet, but nono tho loss firm, dealers refusing to soli at auy conces sion, as tho tendency still seems to bo in an up ward direction. Goal remains dull, as previous ly quoted. In tho market for canned goods thero was loss trading than for somo time past, tho unfavorable weather cheek ing the demand. Prices, however, remained firm. Nothing now was reported in tho fish and dried fruits markets. Hay remains dull and un settled. Hides and leather woro strong, tho former at a slight advance. There was a liberal business doing in oils, and the general feeling was firm. Tho changes in values woro ooufluod to an advance of 1c on carbon, and a decline of lo in turpentine. Pig iron was steady and firm. Tobacco and wood woro unchanged. There was only a moderate amount of trading in lumber ana building materials to-day, business being interrupted more or loss by tho inclement weather. Prices woro without material change. Tho hardware merchants again report a largo and liberal order trade; and a firm fooling in regard to all articles in the Hat. Iron and nails are in fair demand and firm. Hops and wool woro dull and nominal. Furo aro arriving with more freedom and all good skins moot with ready solos at tho quoted prices. Seeds woro rather quiot to-day, excepting millet and Hungarian, which were in fair request and firm. Clover and timothy woro steady at former prices. Green fruits woro in moderate local demand. Tho receipts of poultry woro very light; and good stock was salable to tho local trade at tho full prices of yesterday. Eggs woro active at lC@l7o. closing at lC@lGkto. Highwinea woro quiot and unchanged." Sales, were limited to 50 brls at per gallon; but tho market closed firm at that quotation, in sym pathy with a former touo reported from Now York at the close. Lake freights woro quiot, but strong, at a further advance of Only one charter was reported, at IGo for corn, or 17>£o for wheat, by sail to Buffalo. That was nominally tho mar ket at the close, with a good demand, but ship pers unwilling to pay asking rates. Through rates wore quoted at COo per 100 lbs to Now York, and 050 to Boston. Provisions wore more active and a shade firmer, though very slow till near the close. There was no urgent demand for any description of product, but holders wore very firm in tboir vlowa, and offered almost nothing,—waiting for buyers to come to them. Moss pork was XOo per brl higher. Lard advanced 60 per 100 lbs, and meats >£o per lb, tho latter, being strong, as stocks are quite low for this season of the year, and the demand scorns to bo unabated. Tho market closed at the following range of S rices: Moss pork, cosh or seller March, $14,70; o seller April. $14.70(3)14.75; do seller May, $14.00@16.00; dosollor Juno, $15.15@15.20; do seller July, $1D.40@16.45; prime moss. $12.50 @18.00; extra prime, $10.00@10.25.

Tho market opened out strong, hi Anticipation .of a higher ; huftho Blight-advance brought out numerous Boilers, and tho.numbdr of buyers decreased when Liverpool was subuo quontly reported dull, though !now York was quoted strong. Tho receipts wore light, nnd tho storm was freely referred to as threatening to materially reduce our supplies, as well as inter fere with planting \ hut it was remembered that tho storm promised also to lengthen tho winter, and thus keep our present. largo, stocks hero longer than was expected. Tho real cause of the weakness was said to bo tho fact that there are very few shorts out, and none of them other than in tho hands of small operators. Tho larger shorts have already filled in ; hence a paucity of buyers, especially as there wore wldo uproad expectations of heavy offerings this week from parties who are having com carried for them into next month. There,was no shipping demand, except for the lower grades. Seller April opened at $1.22% advanced Vo, declined to $1.21, and closed at $1.21%.

There was a moderate speculative demand from outside, hut the local offerings wore much in excess 'of tho inquiry, and woro apparently Blimulntod by tho font of heavy deliveries next Tuesday, The fur ther advance in freights was another reason for weakness, as it brought out offerings from parties who had bought to ship, but stood aghast at tho aspect of tho freight question, and deter mined to have nothing more to do with It. Seller tho month, or rognlar'No. 2, opened nt 81% c, and declined to 31% cat tho close. Seller April sold at 31%@31%c, seller.

Ilouce both sellers and buyers are dis appointed, tho planters not realizing their expectations, and tho buyers being unable to All their orders satis factorily.
