MONEY AND COMMERCE. MONETARY. Monday Evening, May 6. There la still n sharp demand for money nt tbo banks, and particularly at such banks ns have largo linos of grain accounts, but la general tbo local money market seems to bo progressing toward an easier condition. The same may bo ealdof Now York and other Eastern markets, and with the disappearance of tbo extreme atriogonoy there tbo theorists bavo ceased, for a time, to puzzle tbolr bonds with finding causes for It In tho “ deficiency of currency M nud other similar nonsense. Tboro woro in fact no causes for ibo recent stringency, except the loss of capital in the Boston and Chicago fires, and in Iho inflation of railroad stocks. Exchange was weak to-day, and sold between banks at par and at 60a per SI,OOO discount. Tho demand from tho country for currency to move tho grain crops is increasing slowly. WSAT IS TUB ACTUAL DimEOIATION 11? VALUE OF anCENDAOKS? There is n class of closot-financiors to whom tho question of tho supply of currency is so dif ficult a puzzlo that they are continually making public statements of queer crotchets about it. Tboro would, perhaps, bo but little harm iu this, if It woro not that many of tho men who assort somo of tbo wildest vagaries about currency, and attempt to maintain them by arguments, aro mon whoso liositioua give their opinions an influence not astlflod by their argumouta. A short time ago, or Instance, Prof. A. L. Perry, of Williams Col lege, reiterated In a Now York paper his state ment that tbo real depreciation of greenbacks is about 40 per cent instead of 16 (with gold at, nay, 117). Prof. Porry arrived at this conclusion because currency prices of commodities iu ibis country axe, on tbo average, 40 per cout blgbor than they woro boforo tbo war, but ho over looked tho fact that tbo iuoreaso of taxation einco tbo war adds at least 20 per cent to tho general average of prices. But now comes Mr. Amasa Walker, of Massa chusetts, and lu a recent speech -to tho mer chants of Ban Proncieco, makes a similar argu ment to tho effect that: Tho paper money of the country is worth for domes tic uses, that is, for tho erection of bulUliugs, tho man ufacture or purchase of homo commodities, not more than 60 or 65 ccuts on tho dollar. Instead of a differ ence,as many imagine, of some 13 or 15 per cent, ibo mere gold premium, tho real difference is some 40 or COnor cent, Mr. Walker argued at considerable length that It is because tbo Secretary of tho Treasury “ has been playing tho hear in thb gold market for tho last four years ” that greenback© appear to bo only 15 percent discount when they aro really depreciated 40 per cent. Now this is not argu ment at all, but Is simply assertion, and cannot bo maintained by auy cogent reasoning. Tho teal depreciation of greenbacks la Just what it appears to bo, and mou occupying positions liko those of Prof, Perry and Hr. walker do much harm by confusing tho public mind with statements which seem to ho mado for tho express purpose of finding some abstract and obscuro cause for things which aro cosily explained by apparent ones. Mr. Walker’s statement la utterly absurd and Impossible. Tboro is, in fact, but ono standard of values in tho world, and that stan dard is gold com; all other values, whether of commodities or credits, aro measured by it, and greenbacks are in nowise an exception to tbo rule. If, as Hr. Walker assorts, greenbacks aro worth only CO to C 5 cents on tbo dollar in tho domestic exchanges of tbo country, ho must measure their value by somo other standard than gold, and wo think it would puzzlo him to say what this now standard is. Tbo valuo of greenbacks, however. Is fluctuat ing, and in tbo trado transactions of this coun try mon do make somo allowance in prices to cover the range of thoso fluctuations. But ibis is comparatively small, and affords no explana tion for Mr. Walker’s extraordinary statement. In arguments about tbo currency, people must hold fast to tho fact that tho value of gold does not change. In tho daily fluctuations of tho “ gold premium ” it is not gold, but tbo value of greenbacks, that changes. They sell ovory day for just as much gold as they aro worth, to ex change them for commodities wboao prices aro regulated iu goldby the demand for them. It wfll of course bo naturally askod: WU7 ARE ODKEKDAOKB DEPRECIATED ? Being a promise of tho Qovornmont to pay gold, aud it being presumable that the Govern ment will bo able to pay all its debts; why are greenbacks not worth par P Tho answer to this makes it necessary to recall tho fact that at tbo beginning of tho war tho Government bad no eulficient supply of roady'monoy with which to pay for tbo munitions of war. It bought these of tho people on credit, promising to pay for them in gold, and tho $350,00,000 of greenbacks represent that part of tho debt which tho Gov ernment promised to pay on demand. —at least ibis was tho inference, because there was Do date of payment mentioned in tbs Sreenbacks os there was in tbo bonds, osidos this, the National Banks have practically promised to pay $340,000,000 of gold in redemp tion of their notes, contingent upon tho Govern- Dient paying its greenback notes in gold. Hero aro $700,500,000 of promises to p&y gold on de mand. But tboro has never yet boon a sufficient amount of gold in tbo country to admit of tbo Government and tbo banks venturing on the ex periment of paying tbo gold promised in tboir notes. People see that wo buy so much more of foreign countries than wo sell to them, and we borrow so much to build railroads and make city improvements, that it takes all our ready money to pay off tho balance of trade, and tbo $100,000,000 or $120,000,000 of annual interest on tbo debts wo owe to Europe. This is leaving loss and loss money in tbo country every year, and, as tbo prospect of ac cumulating enough money to pay those $700,- 000,000 of demand notes does not improve, there is a lack of confidence in their payment. This is the whole secret I Lack of confidence in the ac cumulation of sufiiciont of tbo ‘“world’s money”—gold—to pay the notes! llenco It is that, whenever tbo money—tho gold—is exported more largely than usual,, tbo value of greenbacks aud bank-notes declines in tho proportion that confidence In tho accumulation of real money la this country declines. The fluctuations in the “gold premium" (aside from some very temporary effects of speculation) show the fluctuations of this lack of confidence. This is the only cause of tho depreciation of greenbacks, and the whole.of the effects of this cause are measured by the premium oti gold over green backs. LOCATE STOOK AND BOND MAKKKT. Messrs.

Several of tbo barley-doctoring establishments in this city have suspended einco the recent ex posure of'their practices; hut wo hoar that an other concern has boon started not long since, near tho corner of Lako and Canal streets, where the sulphurizing process is now being carried on in full blast. Wo understand also, that there is one of these establishments at or near Syca more, 111,, doing a big business. Tho Now York canals will bo open on the 15th instant, tho only doubtful one being tho Oswego canal, which, it is believed, will also bo ready by tho same date. An effort is now being made to effect a desira ble ebaugo in our wheat trade, which will permit tbo buyiug and selling of Minnesota wheat on its merits. It is well known that many buyers pre fer the Minnesota wheat, and send to tho Mis sissippi lUvor, whereas they would order it in Chicago if they wore euro of being able to obtain it boro. It is thought that tbo change can best bo effected by putting tho Minnesota wheat into tho grades at present called Nos. 1 and 2 hard. The latter term has been abused so much that those grades do not now amount to anything, practically, and might just as well be turned to some useful purpose as not. There will bo no power to change grades till July; but it is com petent for the Inspectors to xfiako tho distinction above suggested, and they probably will do so if it shall appear to be tbo wish of tho trade. TUB MARKETS. There was not much doing in the produce mar kets to-day, except in wheats, and moot of them were steady, with small variations in price from the range or Saturday. The finer weather, with every appearance of a mono settled condition of the atmosphere, has not so far produced the de pression which so many had anticipated. The shipping movement is fully as active as could have boon expected, and is taking on now life now that freights have declined to a more rea sonable figure than those of the winter. Gen eral business is also moro active, bub has not yet taken on the bustling phase usually noticed at this season in past years. Dry goods met with o fair inquiryfromlocnlre tailors and the near-by trade, and the aggregate of sales made a good showing. Values wore without important change, ruling steady for the loading staples, and for seasonable goods gen erally. The grocery market was without now features. Business, though not particularly active, was fully up to the expectations of job bers. and prices of most articles in the list were firmly maintained. Butter woe dull and weak. 801 l butter was unsalable, except at 2@30 de cline from last week’s prices, buyers refusing to pay over 22@270. No change took place in the nagging market, trade ruling quiet at former quotations. Choose was inactive and nominal. Tho demand for coal was limited to small orders to supply current necessities, and prices under went no change. The schooner Montauk ar rived to-day with a cargo of coal, tho first received this season. In the fish and dried fruit markets there wore no changes to note. The demand was fair, and prices wore generally sustained. Tho hide trade was dull, and prices wore weak and lower, green cured being quoted at 10(5) for heavy, and at ll@llj£c for light. Huy continues quiet, and prices of timothy were weak, with, a declining tendency. Tho only change in prices of oils was a decline of 2o in turpentine, tho present quotation being Gl@G2o. Carbon, lard, and linseed wore firm. There was a good inquiry for lumber this morning at tho yards, ns well as for cargoes allqat. Yard prices are & tritlo lower on common flooring. There was no change in prices at tho docks, except that they were steadier. Tito trade in metals and tinners' stock is rather light, though prices are without change. Nails are in fair request and easy at tho rates quoted. Tho demand for iron and stool is only fair, imported stock remaining firm. Building materials .woro quiet and unchanged. Naval stores woro in good request and steady. Wool wasin moderate request and easy, lions woro Inactive and lower. Broom corn was in fair demand, and all good grade* are firm. There was moro inquiry for timothy at about former prices. Hungarian and millet woro in moderate request. Other seeds wore quiet and unchanged. Potatoes were in moderate de mand, choice lots being mostly wanted. There was no further change in green fruits. The firmness iu oranges and lemons continues, while apples are slow and prices irregular. Poultry met with a moderate local inquiry, at about tiaturd&y's rates. Eggs were in better request, and firm at ll>£@l2u. Uighwlnes woro in good demand, and advanced another Wo, in sympathy with (Innnees in New York. Sales wore reported of 60 brls at H7)(o, and 200 brls at BHo per gallon, tho market closing firm at tho outside. Lake freights wore qulot and a shade firmer, being quoted at VMt&'jyfo for com tolluffato, and XOo for wheat to do. A total of seven char tors was reported, of which five wore late on Saturday afternoon, at 150 for wheat to Kings ton. These veeeew will carry out 110,000 bu whoat and SO,OOO bu corn. Provisions wore qulot, and dull. Moan pork ruled steady during tho greater part of the bos eion at a shade below Saturday's quotations, but weakened later under one or two offerings to sell, and cloned ICo per brl lower.

Tho market opened weak and lower, but soon gath ered strength, though without any urgent de mand. The reasons adduced for this are that Liverpool was quoted firm, with a decided de crease in stocks, and that there is a prospect of largo shipments from ibis .point now that freights ore reduced. Besides this, it was no ticed tbit there aro yet a great many deliveries to be made on tbo option of seder May, a very unusual circumstance, from which it is argued that there are yet a good many shorts for this month. There wore a few buying orders on tbo floor from outsido, but tbo trading *was prin cipally local, and governed by tho considerations above named, holders not being anxious to sell. The option of soilor Juno opened at $1.25%, ad vanced to $1120%, aud closed at $1.25%, -Holler tbo month, or regular No. 2 spring, sold at $1.23%@1.25, closing at $1.21%.

Cosh sales wore reported of 2,800 bu No. 2 spring (hard) at $1.25% ; 5,000 bu do (fresh receipts) at $1.25%: CU.OUObudo at $1.25; 10,000 bu do at $1.21% ; 15.000 bu do at $1.21%; 5,000 bu do at $1.24% ; 35,000 bu do at $1.21%; 400 bu re jected spring at 98o; 800 ba by sample at $1.35; 400 bu do at $1.30. Total, 135,000 bu. Corn was loss active, and averaged %o lower. Tho market was quite dull during a groat part of tho session, though strong at tho decline which was brought about early, in sympathy, with a liko condition in wheat. Then a fair de mand sprung up near tho close, principally for opliona, which fell away when Now xork was quoted unsettled and heavy. Thcro was a light demand for shipment, but tbo heavy shipments of tho past few days have largely reduced our slocks, though most.of it was afloat. Still tbo property is moving, and making room for money wherewith to pay for moro grain, which fact helps to sustain tho market. Seller June opened at 3S)%c, advanced to 40% c, and closed at 40%0. Soilor tho month, or regular No. 2, solo at 37%@ 380, closing at 37%0, with a premium of about %o’in favor of strictly fresh receipts. Seller July sold at 41%@42%0, and soilor August at 43@13%0. Cosh sales wore reported of 0,400 bu No. 2at BSXo ; 4,000 bu do at 38%0 ; 15,000 bu do at 380 ; 00,000 bu do at 37%0 ; 16,000 bu do at 37% c ; 0,400 bu rejected at 810 : 5,000 bu do at BG%o ; 11,200 bu do at 30%0, add 5,000 bu do at Soc, all alloat; 400 ba by sample at 300.
