MONEY AND COMMERCE. MONETARY, Saturday Evening, April 5. « Notwithstanding tho stringency that hau pro- ; tailed In all tho Eastern cltioa mid In Europe, mo ney continues In “fair supply In this market. Tho demand is active, aud in some quartern tho banks have more good paper offered than thoycaioto take, but in tho Btroot tho supply of money offer ed is good, and all really first-class paper la easi ly disposed of at 10 to 12 per cent, with some transactions In loss desirable paper at 15 lo IS per cent. Exchange is In demand, tho romUtnncoa of Western merchants to Eastern oroditora being largo. Bales of Now York funds wore mado to day at 500 and GOo per SI,OOO premium. The groat feature in finances to-day is tho ad vance lu tho price of gold to 11D>$, though the closing prico was somewhat lower. It is appar ent that the great decrease In tho amount of gold In tho country during tho last fifteen.!, months, aud tho probability that tho uamo ox-:. Sorioueo is to bo repealed iu tho next four orl vo mouths, is placing tho price of gold entirely in tho control of the gold speculators, and when tho exports of domestic products fall off, as they usually do In summer, gold will go much higher than uOw. t , , t .

Tho milder weather of tho last week or ton days has increased tho disposition to buy suburban lauds, but it has also caused a feeling of greater confidence on tho part of holders of land, and many who wore willing to sell a fow weeks ago, whou tho woathor was wiutcry and tho bleak prairio lauds in tho suburbs looked mything but inviting, aro unwilling to sell now. Spring sunshine and sprouting grass oro groat stimulants to imaginations, that picture future suburban villas where there is nothing of tho kind yet. But whilo there is more confidence there aro fewer traneoctious, for the reason that tho views of holders and of*' would-be-buyers eooin to bo further apart. Somo of tho latter be gin to think that, possibly, “ tbo speculation is out ” of land in some directions, whore tho ad vance in prices has been great within tho last few months. Tho moat active speculation just at present is porbaps in that extensive, uninhabited, and al most inaccessible district extending about six miles west from tho Groat Eastern Railroad, and about six miles Boutlr.rard from the Chicago & Alton Railroad, comprising about twelve square miles of territory in tho west half of tho Town of Lake, and about tho snmo in tho cast half of tho Town of Lyons. Tho price of laud in that direction is low compared to the prices in oilier directions tho eamo distance from iho city, be cause there is no menus of transit to and from the city. Two or three suburban railroad pre lects for making this land accessible are talked of, though wo hvvo reason to believe none of them have, ns yot, any more substantial foundation than “ talk. The talk, however, ban bad tho effect to increase tho prices asked for a largo part of tho laud in that quarter, and a good many salos have been made at prices double what tho land could havo been bought for a year ago. Tho latest sale wo bear of in that direction is that of 100 acres, in tho northeast of. Section 110, Town of Lalco, being four miles west of Englewood, and one mile directly west of South Lynne, at SSOO per aero. There appears also to bo sumo kind of a speculative railroad project brewing in connec tion with tho district between tho (J. B. A Q. it. R., and tho Ogdon ditch, and extending all tho way from tho city limits out to tho Dosplalnos River. In tho NOIITHEUN TAUT OP CICERO, which includes Rldgolaud. Austin, and tho North western shops, there in also a good deal of spec ulative activity, though it has a more substantial basis of actual improvement—in tho way of now railroads already built, and buildings being erected—than tho districts first mentioned. About a hundred men uro now at work on tho rouud-houso, which is to ho part of tho grout blvo of industry at tho Northwestern shops, and aovoral dwellings for occupation by persons con nected with tho mechanical department of tho Northwestern Railroad aro about to bo erected. In this quarter wo hoar of tho sale of 10 aoros In Beo. 16, being on Madison street, half a mile west of tho new city limits, at $9,600 per aoro. also 4 acres in 800. 10, over a milo and a half west of the city limits, and half a milo southeast of Austin, for $2,600 per aero. A HAU.IIOAD HOUND TUB* CITY. Two projoctu for a “ Bolt Hallway n around tho entire suburban territory, just outuldo tho city limits, uro being talked of. One of those has a sort of quasi indorsement from tho North western Railroad Company, and it is proposed lo make a 1i..0 from flomo'polnt In tho Town of Lake View, north of Lincoln Pork, and running nont ami uouth, adjacent to tho boulevard. It would naan Humboldt, Central, Douglas, and tlio Ho'.Uh Parks, tbuH forming a bolt railway, which, in lIM progress, would crosa every railroad enter ing Oiilcnco. All tho advantages of a union depot would thereby bo Bcourod to tho traveler. Truinn would bo mu, Ray starting from the Doutboru terminus ; and, on arrival ut tho first crossing, tho uamo of that railway would bo an nounced, the transfer of imwiongora made, and tho tmmo proceeding repeated at caoh crossing upon tho naif circular route. ALONG TUB CHICAGO A PACIFIC RAILROAD. The work on tho Chicago & I’aciflo Hallway la now being pushed forward with energy. About ono tullo of track Is laid per day. The rood in graded, the exception of a few oulh, to Elgin, and tho track in laid a distance of 25 miles from their temporary depot, coni or North llrauuh, Water, and misted directs, It in ex pected that tho lino will bo in working order to Elgin by tho 10th of uoxt May, and to the junc tion on tho Western Union Hallway dining tho season. Thoro la considerable activity in refer ence to stock along tho Uuo, aud tho suhaorip- tlons arc encouraging. ; A mixed traiu will bo put on within a week, ruunlug over tho completed part each way once per day. As soon as spring has fairly opened n suburban train, running six or eight times a day. will bo added. Tho Company is already supplied with considerable rolling stock to moot the de mands for freight and passenger traffic. Several stations are established near tho city limits, around which thoro Is much activity in real estate. Tho first one of these is at Humboldt Park. Lands adjacent may ho put down at from $1,500 to $4,000 per acre. Much of it is subdivided, and is ou tho market by tho lot. Cue and a half miles west of Humboldt is the second station, called “Pacific.” Tho lands at this point have boon subdivided into village lots and aro hold at about tho samo figures as above. Next to Pacific and one aud a half miles further, is tho third station, called “Kolvyu Grove." Tho lands around this station are now being subdivided. Seven hundred and forty acres are In tho posses sion of ono party, who proposes to mako this locality ono of groat attraction. A boulevard 200 feet wide will extend through it oast and west, and north and south. Every alternate street will bo 100 foot in width. Tho uoxt elation is “ Qalowood," which Is lo cated on “ tho ridge.” Thou another mile and a half comes “ Lovett,” where a oration has boon built, and two miles more brings tho lino to the Dosplalnos Hlvor, at “ Oazonovlt*,” whore thoro is active demand for acre property. This lino of railway roaches the city on tho Bioomingdnlo Hoad, crossing tho North Branch near the Bolling Mills. THE EVANSTON TRAINS. Tho residents of Evanston make considerable complaint of the "Tact that tho trains on tho Northwestern Itoilroad do not run into Wells street depot, na they did last year, but start from and stop in tho Northwestern depot, on the what side of tlio river, to tho groat incon venience of tho Evanston people. The other project is for a similar lino branch ing of! to tho west from tho Illinois Central Bailroad somewhere obont liydo Park and run ning west just south of tho South Parle to some poiut west of South Lynne, thonco north through tho Town of Cicero, and eastward through tho Town of Lako View to some point of junction with tho Milwaukee railroads, thus crossing all the railroads that outer the city. Ono of the oh-, jocts in view is to transfer freight cars from ono railroad to another. This toad is, wo under stand, favored by tbo Illinois Central Company, who profess willingness to give passenger depot facilities for tbo trains of tbo toad in tboir Luke Bboro Depot. WHOLESALE PHY GOODS AND CLOTHING. Tho tendency tu ail largo cities is, for dilforont departments of business, especially of tbo whole sale trade, to form centres, around which nil seem to cluster. Immediately after tho Uro, it appeared as if tbo ontiro dry goods business was about to locate in the throo or four blocks bound ed by Market, Washington. Mouroo, and Wells streets. It is now evident that moat of tbo larger retail stores will drift back to tboir old quar ters ; but tbo wholesale trade seems likely to remain whore it is. Within tho Inst week or two, several of tho wholesale clothing cslnbUsh monts have been looking for quarters in tho vicinity of tbo heavy dry goods houses, and wo should not bo surprised to see a very consider able movement iuthat direction by tho Ist of May. * THE NEW CUSTOM-HOUSE. Tho work on the now Custom-llauso building will commence vigorously, with a force of nearly 100 mon, ns soon as tho weather permits and tho frost is thoroughly out of tho ground. Up to tho present tlmo, and for the excavating and.concreting, etc., $51,000 has been expended. All reports to tho contrary, and there. aro such abroad, are false. The work has progressed, iu addition to tho oxoavntionu, to tho laying of the foundation of tho area wall. Tho stone for this, wall iu nearly all oil the"ground, together with ft .good portion of tho pier stones. Ic is being de livered as faot ns it is prepared. It is furnished by John H. Mueller, and comes from .Buena Vista, iu Ohio. Some idea of the contract for this material may bo formed when it is slated that the machinery, alone, for handling this atone at tho quarry and tho landing at Cincinnati and at tho depot on Twelfth street, cost $200,000. It is brought from Buena Vista down tho Ohio Bivor to Cin cinnati. and thence to Chicago over tho Illinois Central Railroad, via Kankakee. The pier stones will each weigh five tons. The machinery for hoisting and handling this mate rial is now being received at tho grounds. There aro other single pieces of tho stone-work thatwill weigh twouty-two and a half tons. Tho coat for all sizes will average $1.30 per cubic foot. It will bo sandstone, and of tho same bind ns seen in tho Board of Trade Build* lug and many other flue buildings in tho city. Tho iron work of tho basement and first story will bo let on tho 12th inat. Tho competition for ilia contract, which includes tho material and placing it in position, is extended all over tho United States. It is not known who will re* coivo it, bat it is honed it may bo award ed to Chicago. The bids will bo opened on tho X2th, and then sent to Washington for award. Tho columns of tho first story—many of them will weigh eight tons— aro single castings. Tho iron-work for tho basement and first story vail cost near $400,000. It is expected that two stories of tho great odifico will bo completed during tho season. At tho present, nothing more is being done than tho pumping out of tho water in tho founda tion that is below tho sower level, and tho planking around tho building to faeiliiato team ing. hatuuday’o tiukbfehs.

Tho Associated Press report of last evening gave throo reasons for tho weakness in grain in Now York, but omitted to give what is un doubtedly tho true reason. -That is tho fact that that thoro has been no export demand on tho seaboard, as proven by tbo statement that tho exports from Now York for tho week ending lost evening woro only 1*2,000 bu wheat, ana 130,000 bu corn. With such plentiful offerings of California wheat in Liverpool, tho merchants there do not care to order wheat from this sec tion. and thoro is little encouragement to spec ulative shippots, in tho fact that tho best bid in Liverpool yesterday for Chicago No. 2 spring to arrive in May was 48a per quarter,-which willnot admit of over $1,05 being paid for it boro, reck oning on the basis of 15c freight to Kings ton.

New York was quoted ir regular, with largo holders firm in their views, notwithstanding a very small export demand. Tho advices from Liverpool generally quoted, that market as firmer, though nil did not agree !u that respect. This gave tv stronger tone to onr market, especially as there are a groat num ber of orders hero to buy May wheat at $1.10(5) 1.20. Tho greatest cause of tho improvement in .prices scorned, however, to bo the fact that there wore numerous “ puts " out, to deliver at about 81.10% to-day; and tho parties who had sold those privileges wore naturally anxious to pre vent deliveries from being made. This put business is growing, in magnitude; in fact it seems now to bavo boon organized into a regular science, like tho bookmaking of tho turfite'.

Now York was heavy, and tho weather hero was fine, which promised a larger yield on the now crop, and larger receipts on tho old, while tho prospects of snipping out are small, ns most of the freight room now in harbor has boon engaged by one or two parties, and a considerable proportion thereof is understood to bo for corn to arrive by canal. So great an anxiety to sell, and bo little desire to buy, *havo not boon noticed in corn for several days past. It is probable that much of this fooling was duo to fears of tbo effect of • tho weather upon tho com now in store hero, as much ;of it was secured lu on inferior con dition as to dryness.

Our market has sympathized to tho oxtonl of a bo far as shipping gradoa woro concerned, but romalno essentially unchanged for other descriptions. That under tbo pressure of tbo enormous re ceipts of tbo past two weeks (Homo 85,000 bead arrived during that poriod) tbo depreciation in values Bhould have boon no greater, is matter for surprise. Had not the attendance of outside buyers boon unusually full, and the quality of the stock exceptionally liuo. tbo profits of drovers bad been loss; or, rather, their losses would bavo been greater. The inquiry for stock steers has steadily exceeded tbo offering, and the inquiry for butchers’ stuff has also kopt paco with tho supply, and for thoso two classes tbo prices current a week ago bavo uniformly boon well sustained. Stock cattle may bo ox- S acted to continue in active request for some mo to come, and it is not probable that tbo supply, within the next six weeks, will at any time so far oxcccd tbo demand as to cause any material decline. In a few instances feeders have paid $4.G5@4.75 for especially desirable lots, but their purchases woro chiolly at S3.CO@ 4.00 for poor to medium, and at $4.25@4.50 for fpood to prime. The supply of now niilchi cows s gradually increasing, but tho market has not ns yot been overstocked, and prices keep well up, ranging from $20.00 per bead for poor to $45.00 for choice, veal calves woro salable at about former rates, though tbo tendency is downward, as tho receipts are more liberal. Good to choice fat light-weights sell at $5.00(5)5.75, and poor to medium qualities at $8.50(5)4.50. Corn-fed Texas cattlo bavo been la fair supply at $4.00@1.'50 for common to modi-, urn droves, aud at $4.75(5)5.00 for choice, with a fow extra at $5.12)£. , • „ To-day there was a dull, heavy feeling in tho market. Tho different classes of buyers woro well represented, bub tboir wants woro fow, and it was n dragging trade from tho opening to tho close. Shippers woro tho principal operators, a fow loads only being taken by local butchers or feeders. • Prices wore without quotable change, os compared with yesterday, tbo following being tho closing: QUOTATIONS.
