o MONEY AND COMMERCE. MONETARY. Fnu>AT Evkkiho, April 18. • There is scarcely any change to note lu the local money market.' Some of the banks Bay Ihey ore experiencing a very active demand and bonnet meet all the applications they would Uko to, but there is fitlll a good supply of money in the market at 10 to 12 per cent. * Now York exchange la still scarce, and aolla at KOo to 600 per SI,OOO premium. Borne of the bOhto are etlll shipping .currency to Now York. There is no currency going to the country, but Ihore Is considerable coming in. ‘ The Grand Jury of the Oily of Now York, after going through the usual farce of hearing com plaints of the violations of the usury laws, has at last succumbed to tbo logic of events, and appealed to the Legislature of tho State to re peal so much of tho usury law as applies to tho City of New York. Tho G rand Jury baVo at last been forced to tho conclusion that there Is no •other moans of relief from tho powor of the tnonoy-lendors than to let them loose, and lot them charge all they can got. Thia la un aonbtodJy tho right thing to do 5 tho money problem In Now. York would then aeon Solve Itself. Money ia worth more than railroad stocks and bonds or hau built railroads at tbo inflated prices of tho last »lx months, and If tho apooulators who are car rying those Booiiritlos ana endeavoring to shoul der mem oil upon the public persist In trying to keep up tho inflation, nobody can fool very sorry that tmvhavo to pay for their experiment, it Ib. of course, to bo regretted that tho tegular mercantile trade of Now York is made to suffer Mo somo extent with tho stock cnoculators, but Ihelr distress is tho unavoidableconsequence of Wew York capital Laving boon bq largely do- Sotod to gambling speculation Instead of loglti lato traao. Speculation in Blocks, bonds, and eocuritioß would, of course, not bo possible If the stocks and bonds woro not baaed on real property, aud did not represent legitimate enter prises, bat speculation in those securities de stroys confidence in tho value of' tho property Ahoy represent, and its tendency is to crush out legitimate trade and legitimate ontorprieoo. This must bo the effect of wall street financier ing on tho legitimate trade of Now York. The New York Times points out, very sensibly, that -l .Wall street bankers and brokers can hold out of speculation at the Stock and Gold Exchanges, and, after withdrawing most of their money from tho securities dealt In there, use it to loan out at usurious rates. But merchants cannot dp lids; they must continue with their usual busi ness of buying and soiling goods, oven if they lose money all tho time, and they know It. Should their stock of goods grow loss upon Mho shelves, then consumers will go whore a full is kept. There must bo no retrench ment in that way. Tho working expenses at the {establishment cannot bo cut down, for tho sala ries of tbo clerks in tho most prosperous times hardly suffice lor their support. Not only do jtheao remarks bold good regarding dry goods merchants, but regarding grocers, wholesale ] tieolera in provisions, cotton, and cloths. Tbo ' business men go on with their undertakings be cause they are forced to, and every day takes •way a certain sum from their capital. This goes to those who have money and loan it for what it is worth in tho market. Not only are business men in tho various branches of trade potted to contend With dear money, but also with blgh gold. This latter item of expense is no •mail one to Importers, whose goods brought from foreign countries amount 'to.- millions of dollars every year. The backs, in some Instances during tho late .stringency, have, it is said, loaned out mouoy fova;r night through brokers in so bold a manner jthat there has boon little difficulty in connecting ’them with tho transaction. A house in Brood street borrowed SIOO,OOO over night, at Jtf per '•cut, last week, from a broker known to them, but who wm supposed to bo lending his own money. The next day tho agent of one of the loading trust companies called at tho office of the firm which borrowed tho money, and asked if the house desired to keep tho 3100,000 for an other day. Tho borrower replied tbot ho had no Idea tho money came from tho Trust Company; that'he took it from a broker known to them, and ho was tho person whom ho recognized in the transaction. Tho agent replied that the broker had- been taken with sudden illness, and was unable to bo on tho stveot, aud that was tho reason ho called around. Tho bor * tower was much surprised that tho Trust Com pany should show its hand so boldly, but as he wanted the money, ho took it from tho agent of the Company over night. Those instances are not isolated, but nrool common occurrence, and there is a universal cry, not for tho enforcement 0/ tbo usury law, which would only tend to par alyze trade, but for A FUEB BANKING LAW.” Ab far aa froo banking meana a removal of all restrictions on the aggregate amount of National Bank circulation issued upon security of United States bonds deposited with the United States Treasurer, The Ouioaqo Tnmunn baa advocated it for several years. The present restriction makes National Bank circulation a wonopoty, nud that alono is sufficient reason for its aboli tion. -Those, however, who are now calling for a free banking law in Now Tork scorn to doso under tho mistaken notion that an increase of currency would in some way bo an increase of capital. Jt is therefore only another phase of tho. CLAMOR rOK MORE GREENBACKS, . which has boflot the Treasury ever since the Secretary claimed to have tbo authority to Issue $14,000,000. The public mind has got bo fud dled with the idea of currency being tbo solo representative of money that it Beems impossible to correct the error with tbo groat , majority. The New York WorW of tho 16th poiuta out, in a sensible editorial on tbo cry for currency, tbo fact, which has frequently boon pointed out in this column, viz: that tho supply of money in the market does not depondou cur- 1 renoy, but ou tbo amount of bank deposits, and “tbatifU. bo found that Secretary Kichardaon is immovable in his resolution not to make any •further issue of legal-tenders, out men of busi ness will accommodate thomsolvod to a fixed currency, as .they do in England.” There is, however, a largo class who, while recognizing the Insignificant part played by currency in tho Increase of loanable capital in tho market, arc clamoring for a much moro dangerous kind pf inflation, viz: on inflation of bank credits. “‘Liberate, says tbo Now Yorkßafictin of the 15th, “‘ourbonks from tho obligation of koopkig on hand at all times, in legal money, 25 per cent of their entire liabilities, and wo shall not require now issues of legal-tenders any more than Eng land requires new issues of Bank of England notes.” A superabundant currency that depreciates because it Is irredeemable is bad enough. But Ed increased issue of it would galvamzo trade 3to o.temporary and fictitious activity, because In tbo hurry to get rid of it every one who would receive ft would boston to oxebango It for other kinds of property that would nob • depredate, and thus tho bustling of it from hand to hand would make “‘trade active,” and make “prices rise.” But (ho kind of inflation advocated by tho Now York Bulletin would bo worse. The banks would ex pand their credits, and soon be as bard up if tho whole of their 25 per cent reserve against depos its w&s loaned out as they are now. Tho knowl edge that (hey must hold 25 per cent, or leper •cent, jor any fixed per cent of reserve against deposits, sustains tbo confidence of depositors. Tako away tho requirement for reserve, and there would bo froquont and suddou panics. LOCAL STOCK ASD BOND MARKET. Meaera. 4 Lunt, Preston & Koan quota as fo' • lows tbis afternoon ■Buirfnfl.

Tbo following grain baa been Inspected into atoro,' this morning, up to 10 o’clock j 7 cars wheat; 121 cars com; 83 cars oataj 3 cars bar ley. Total, 101 cara, or 72,000 bu. Also, 58,000 bu No. 2 corn, and 23,000 burojeotoddoby canal. It la pleasant to know that arrangements are being made to more out a large, quantity of. groin from this city on tbo first nows that the Straits are open; and that nearly all the roseola available for carrying grain are now loaded. Cut it would bo still more agreeable if the commercial world were satisfied that tbo receipts Issued when this gram was place in store worou cancelled on its delivery to vessels. At present the commercial world does not know tbis to bo .the case, though the groat majority of its members undoubtedly presume that our governmental tacklo is equal to the task of keeping things straight. Nevertheless, it is thought by some who ought to know, that the .Ccßistrar’s cancellation*. the actual deliveries to yobbow timing the pres ent week, might show a rather wide difference, if they wore compared—a difference that possibly amounts to not far from 200,000 bu of com. It is not known whether the com has boon bought from warehousemen, or borrowed from them; in either case it should not bo delivered from store without the surrender and cancellation of the receipts. The matter is probably worth in quiring into a little -further. If there bo no ground for the surmise, it can )>e easily set at rest. THE SIMtKETS. The loading produce markets wore rather loss active to-day, in tho aggregate—wheat being tbo exception, as it was yesterday. Tho average of prices was about tho same, wheat and com in clining downward, in consequence of the excite ment in New York, and partially, perhaps, be cause tho weather was not qulto so heavy and our storm-signal bad boon ordered down. Other ar ticles of produce wore generally firm, under light receipts. Tbo shipping movement was slow, ex cept m tho carrying out of arrangements pro vioualymado. Dry goods woro moderately active, and un changed. Tho continued unfavorable weather interferes to eomo oxtont with tho uoar-by and local retail trade, but tbo move ment is liberal for (bo season, and tho market maintains a firm, healthy tone. There was a very quiet fooling in tbo grocery market, and dealers generally woro not particularly firm in their views, though aside from coffees, which woro off a #c, ana oho or two grades or refined sugars, which declined an Ko. thoro.waa no quotable decline. Butter was in light supply and prices woro steadier. No changes were noted in,tho fish and dried fruit markets, trade ruling quiet at substantially for mer rates. Hoy was reported scarce, and abide from pressed timothy a sharp advance was estab lished. Tho offerings of loose bay on wagons woro oxtromoly light, and prices wont to SIC.OO@ XB.OO for timothy, and to $13.00@15.00 forprairie. Tho demand was confined to supplying local wonts. Hides woro weak, while leather ruled firm at full prices. Oils, pig iron, tobacco, and coal wore quiet and unchanged. Wood declined to $ll.OO for beech, and to $12.00 for maplo, Tho lumber market was quiet and without par ticular change; Tbo unpleasant weather and bad condition of tbo country roads tends to hoop buyers away. Thoro was no change in yard firioos. A cargo was sold at tbo docks tins morn- Qgat $14,50 for No. 2 boards, and strips and lath sold at 00.25. Several vessels woro In this morning, and the receipt* next wook will px*oba>. bly bo liberal, as quite a number have gone out for lumber. Thoro was no perceptible change in tho market tor tho metals, nails, iron, and naval stores; tho demand la fair, considering the weather, and prices are generally steady. Build ing materials woro quiet. Common brick was a trifle firmer, now quoted at Ba.OO@U.DO, and lU clue pressed at SBO.OO. Other materials woro unchanged. Hops and broom-corn wore without essential change ; tho former is very quiet, bub dealers aro qulto firm in their views owing to tho light stocks and reports of plants being winter-killed in Wisconsin. Broom corn was in bettor demand and steady. Tho wool market remains quiet and easy; prices, ore quoted from 2@30 lower; millet, Hungarian, and tho bolter grades of timothy mot with a tolerably fair inquiry to-day, and ruled firm. Timothy and clover are scarce, and the former is a trifle higher; prime is now quoted at $3.40. Potatoes woro in good shipping demand and firm. Poultry continues scarce, and sells readily on arrival. Eggs wore in moderate local demand at former prices. Highwinos woro moro active, and firm at tbo advance noted yosterdey, though quoted inactive In Now York. Halos were reported of 200 brig at 870 per gallon. Lake freights wore inactive at unchanged ?;uotations, Agents asked 150 for com and 10c or wheat by sail to Buffalo fur tho few vessels yet untakon; but there was no demand. It was stated on the floor to-day that wheat can bo sent to Now York by rail at 00c per bu; and consider able dissatisfaction is expressed at the alleged foot that some shippers aro being extensively favored in (he matter of rates while others are not. Provisions wore less active than yesterday, but firmer, in sympathy with stronger markets else where. Mesa pork was in gooa demand, and ad vanced 100 per bri, though buyers reported (ho market weak till near the close, and held oil in hopes of a decline. Tho Inquiry was principally .{otifuuttoUvWi wulvfittoM for Hint mouth THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1873. wore tho nlrongoot In consequence.

Nor York was quoted duU and heavy, but dealers generally reported our market unchanged, though the fooling was weak, and coucoosTous wore undoubtedly mode in a few cases, no tho bulk of the sales wore on private terms. Tho following wore the reported trans actions* 75 brls winter extras at $7.75 1 20 brls epring extras (Minuohaba) at 89.00; 100 brls do (Minnesota) at 80.60 ; 50 brls do at brls do (low geode) at $4,8715; 500 brio do on private terms. Total, 845 brls. Also, 10 tone corn meal at 812.50 on track, and 20 tons bran at SO.OO on track.

Bpring supotiiucs Bye hour 8ran...... , Middling*. Wheat was moro active; but %@%o lower; ap parently in consequence of a reported decline In Liverpool, and a sluggish fooling m - Now York, 'which weakened the hands of option, traders, without bringing out any important offerings of cash lots. Cash wheat has boon really,scarce in this market for several days past, though money is close; the grain is being carried into May for parties to whom the holders have sold ahead, making a profit by carrying it. This is undoubt edly the reason why no regular wheat is offered, and fresh receipts ore scarce because arrivals are light, and probably will bo so till the planting season is over. Of course there is little demand for It. Tho freight room now hero is almost all taken for com, and thoro is no disposition to ship to Now York by rail, though freights avo understood to bo relatively low. To ibis statement wo must except that low grades have gone forward .by rail to Now York qulto freely, and oro offered thoro as “Chicago No. 2 M at several cents'per bu I below what real No. 2 can be bought for. In options, a groat many operators are waiting for I tho weather, afraid to trade either way till our : meteorological conditions are known more pre cisely* honco moat of tho trading is a.straight ouing up of previous deals. Sollof May opened at $1.21%, declined to $1.20%, advanced to $1.21%, and closed lame nt $1.20%. Seller Juno sold at $1.22%@1.28%. closing at.sL23. ' Seller the mouth was little bettor tbau nominal, , at $1.18%@1.10%, closing at 81.18%, and 1 strictly fresh receipts closed with $1.20 asked. No. 1 spring was inactive.

Cash safes were reported of 2,000 bu hard No. 2 spring at $1.20%; 2,800 J bu fresh re ceipts No. 2 at $1.20; 800 bu regular do at $1.19%; 1,200 bu No. 8 spring at $1.00% ? 800 bu rejected do at ODo; 100 bu by sample at SI.BO. Total, 8,000 bu. Com was moderately active, and a shade|flrmor than yesterday, though tho receipts wore com paratively largo—mostly by rail. New York was quoted stronger, and it is probable that the ship pers wore again in the hold buying up receipts against com already loaded, or to bo loaded without delay. A considerable proportion of the caual receipts still inspect rejected, and tins was taken hold of to-day, most of it being first-class in quality, only a little damp. Tho demand, out side of this, was chiefly for May delivery, for which, there wore Rpveral vuumij account, the offerings from that source being larger than for several days past. Boiler May opened at 86% c, de clined to 30%0, and closed firm at 86%0. Seller tho mouth, or regular No. 2, sold at 35@35%0. closing at 85%0. Strictly fresh receipts of No. 2 closed at 000. Boiler Juno sold at 88%@38%0, closing at 88%@38%0. Seller July sold at 89% (®40%0, and seller August at 40%@410. Seller September woe offered freely, but thoro were no buyers.

Total, 188,000 bu. ' Oats wore in fair demand, and %o higher, soil ing rather frooly at tho outside quotation or yes terday, with a few sales at a slight advance. Tho market was quite strong during tho greater part of tho session, but closed easier, In sympa thy with a lower market reported in the second dispatch from Now York. Boiler tho month sold at 28%@28%0. closing at tho inside. Seller May 1 opened at 20%0, advanced to 29%0, and closed at 29% d. Seller Juno sold at Ulo.

Bye was in good demand, and scarce, there be ing no round lots on tho market, and scarcely anything in the way of car lots. Hence another advance of 1c per bu. Sales woro limited to 400 bu No. 2, fresh receipts, at C7o; and 400 bu by sample at 080. Barley was quiet and easier, there being very little demand, while several lots wore offered for next month. Hence that option was weak, open ing at 720, and closing nominal at 70@710. Bog ular No. 2 sold at 700, while car lota of fresh re ceipts, outside tho Book Island elevators, woro steady at 750.

In 1840, tho lake fleet amount ed to 48 steamers and 250 sail vessels. - In 1849, tho fleet numbered 014 altogether. During tho next twelve ycara there was a great Increase In the •»!*• «/ t*»® me tountige increased from 160.600 tons to 412,000, and the fleet numbered 1,040. In 1872, tho number was 6,420, and the value, as measured by the under writers, was over $58,000,000. Thu tonnage reached more than 7X7,000 touu. This equals nearly ono-half the registered foreign trade tonnage of the United States In 1868, and is a little more than one-fourth tho registered tonnage of 1601, tho year In which tho American whipping Interest was in It* best condition. Tho War of tholtoboUlon drove nearly a million of tons of our commercial marine from the sea. Vessels now navigate the lakes of 1.600 tons burden, but the In crease in capacity and In number hardly keeps pace with the growing trade. Freights last year were well sustained, and (he promlseof high rates for tho coming season is moot flattering. The agricultural and forest products of .the West Increase in value and quantity every year, and tho Iron trade of Lake Superior la rising In Importance. All theso things make necessary larger facilities at the seaboard for tho reception and transfer of freight, and give fresh Importance to the scheme for enlarging the canal and railway capacities of the State. The lake fleet may double in another ton years. For canned goods Baltimore stands ahead. A well known vegetable and fruit packer, of Baltimore, Is preparing on a gigantic scale for the packing season of 1878. Ho Usa between 1,800 and 1,600 acre* of laud under cultivation, and the canning establishment of Frederick is one of the largest in (bo country, cover ing an area of 4or 6 acres. During the busy season 000 persons are employed. Tweuty-Uvo can-makers ere constantly engaged, averaging 000 cans each dslly. Last year within a fraction of 1,000,000 cans wars packed, frequently 35,000 per day. Nova Beotia Fisheries—The report of (be Minister of Marino and Fisheries of the Dominion, Just published, furnishes the following statistics in regard to tbs Nova Beotia fisheries, from which It sppears that 20,313 men wore engaged In this very Important industry during 1871. The catch was unusually large, and was as fol lows: 8,885 brls of salmon, 100,091 salmon In cans, 408,096 1U of French salmon, 228.162 brls of mackerel, 901,600 brls of herring, 10,200 bzs smoked herring, 10,056 brls alo-wlves. 447,106 owt codfish, 110,639 cwt of flcsleftah, 6,l77 brls shad, 851,070 gallons offish-oil, 870,000 dogfish, besides fresh fish to the vslue of $146,- 700; 005,000 cans of lobsters. The total vslue of the above is estimated at $5,101,030. Five-eighths of (be produce of (ho fisheries in tho Confederated Provinces were (akun by Nova Scotia fishermen, A recent lumberman's circular estimates the number Of railroad ties in vreasnt tut lath# V4(«A£LaU4 160.000.

The shipping statistics of France for 1873 Indicate a good degree of commercial prosperity, considering (ho manifold burdens bequeathed by the Franco-German war. During (bo year (hero was entered 3,327,000 tons of Trench Rhlpplng. and cleared 3,188.000 Iona; of for eign shipping, 4,391,000 wore entered, and 3,080,000 tons wore cleared.
