6 MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY. rnuu* Evening, May 10. Thoro are no ebaugoa of Importance to note In Ibo local money market. Tho supply of fundi Is fair for tboao who can fnrniah antiafaotory col littorals. Thoro arc now, aa thoro alwayu aro, XDorchanta who complain that they cannot got eufllclont accommodation at tho banka, but In many of such cnees it probably bo found that they aro merchants who aro doing a larger buHlnoaa than is justlflod by iholr capital. On the other hand, tho amount of bank capital In Chicago, though larger than in almost any other city In tho West, Is small in comparison with tho amount of business douo hero, and morclmta aro obliged to depend moro largely on their own capital than in Eastern cities. This of course makes it hard rubbing for some, but for tho present it does not appear limb thoro is any scarcity of funds to loan on collaterals. ' •' ; Now York exchange was a httlo -firmer to-day. &t from par to 250 por SI,OOO premium. I ’Sterling exchange advanced %to % ofl per ■ coni In Now< York to-day, causing a correspond ing advance in the, price of gold. TUB ASPECTS OF FOREIGN TRADE AND TUB PRICE OF GOLD. It Is well understood that many of tho moat careful financiers nnd merchants have for some months boon apprehensive as to whnt would bo tho effect on tho financial affairs of this country of tho uuHOttlomonfc of confidence in Eu-‘ rope, first, in regard to American railroad bonds, ami moro recently In regard to tho Vienna panic, which Booms to bo only ono of • tho ■ indications of a general collapse of tho speculative lovor which has prevailed in Germany for over a year. Tho etoady rise in tho price of gold from 112 in De cember to U8 in March Boomed to indicate tho progress of our financial relations with ;Europo ; to somo sort of oulminatloq, tho result of which no one could foresee. JJiit now that gold has hung at from 117 to 118 for nearly two months, : many begin to ask what has interposed to stop Us further advance and prevent the culmination 2n our foreign trade and foreign Indebtedness' that throe months ago seemed inevitable. Tho answer to this query is in tho great increase in exports of domestic products this year over last. An approximate notion of this increase may bo obtained from the following figures of tho exports from tho four ports of Now York, BoHton, San Francisco, and Philadelphia, which represent tho groat bulk of general exports, f6r tho first four mouths of tho year, compared with tho corresponding mouths of last yean 1873. 1879. $87,128,140 $08,015,000 11,481,230 8,238,033 0,801,258 6,170,011 19,010,109 13,438,979 Now Y0rk..,,, Boston Philadelphia,., Son Francisco .$125,048,743 $04,888,013 Totals ..Thus,/without any statistics of tho increase of exports from tho cotton porta, which must bo very largo, wo find that there has boon an in-, croaao of - $30,000,000 in tho value of exports of products.'- That this vast increase has boon to a groat extent very recent, Is shown by tho ox-, ports from the port of Boston, which for the month of April wore $4,4-10,573, against $2,376,- 652 in. March. $2,743,887 in February, and $2,805,24-4 in January. Tho increase of over $6,000,000 in tho exports from San Francisco for tho four months over tho same timo in 1872 aro more evenly distributed over the four months, though even those, tho heaviest exports of wheat, which constitute a groat part, if not the whole, of tho increase, have been since February, The increase of imports of foreign goods over tho imports of last year has been largo, but docs not compare with the increase of exports, es pecially during tho past two months. -It is ap parent that this is .what has interposed to chock the rise in tho price of gold. It is not improba ble that the increase in tho amount of sterling exchange made against these increased exports of products from Jan. 1 to tho prosoot time, ns compared with tho same timo last year, is nearly $50,000,000. It will bo seen that the situation throe months ago muatlmvo boon grave when so largo an increase in exports lias only had tho effect to check the rise of gol(| Instead of causing it to decline. Any theory as to how long this increase of ex ports over last year will continue, must, of course, bo merely speculative. • Cotton exports always fall off in ibis mouth. Thus far, thoyaro still much larger than last year at this time. Tho price of cotton Is much lower, but tbo visible supply of cotton in tho United States is still 189,900 bales in excess.of tho supply at this time last year. Throughout tho South generally thoro scorns to bo an expectation that tho incoming cot ton crop will bo tho most valuable every raised in (ho United States. The Montgomery Adrerff scr thinks that tho money paid for it in its raw state will not fall far short of $830,000,000. ‘As for tho California exports of wheat, which have so largely increased tho exports of domes tic products Inis spring, the prospects of a con tinuance of heavy exports from San Francisco aro good...There is still.a largo amount of old wheat to go forward, and tho latest reports from the Pacific coast show that tho rocout fears of a short crop wofo groundless. An enormous breadth of laud was planted in wheat, and it was fully expected a mouth or two ago that Cali fornia would have oven a greater crop of wheat than last year at tho harvest next mouth. Tho drouth of tho past mouth ' has cub short tho yield to a great extent; but tho California Farmer and tho Ban Francisco Commercial Herald, after a careful survey of tbo whole Stale, concur in saying that they “will, this coming season, have a full average crop,” “more,” says tho Herald, “than over before harvested prior to 1872.” Even tho moat desponding of the California ac counts of tho crop do not place tho exportable surplus out of tho maturing crop of wheat nt lons than 400,000 tons, or about 13,000,000 bushels. Of the crops of tho Northwest, tho harvests of which aro so much later than it is scarcely time to speak yet, but thoro has boon nothing yet in tho aspect of weather and the planting to forbid , tbo expectation of a largo crop of wheat. A large area has boon planted in tbo/Went and Northwest—it is all in good condition. Corn has not been planted to so great an extent as.last year, but it is not too late yet to plant, if there appears to bo sufficient Inducement in tho price. From thoso prospects it appoara that tho chances aro in favor of as largo an exportable surplus of domestic products this year as last. The great bulk of them will not, however, bo marketable before October. In tho meantime, tho monthly aggregate of ex ports will diminish, and thoro will bo abundant occasion for a largo advance in the price of gold during tho summer. LOCAL STOCK AND BOND MARKET.

Total, (024 cars) 145,000 bu. During tho year 1872 not loss than 41- vessels loft tho port of Now Orleans for porta 'in the United Kingdom, with an aggregate of 069,232 bu of com, nearly all of which had boon supplied from tho lino of tho Illinois Central Railroad, and two-thirds of it from tho main lino of that road. Corn-freights from New Orleans to Liv erpool wore formerly 200 per bu, but recently they can bo obtained for 12><jC, which Is quite an attraction. Tho only, objectionable thing in tho arrangement is, that St. Louis docs not figure in it, after all her advocacy of tho “ great natural highway.” Thoro was rather less doing on ’Change to day, at about tho same general average of prices as on Thursday; an advance in wheat be ing compensated by a doollno in pork and com. Tho shipping movement was considerably loss active, though Eastern markets wore strong. Tho moro settled weather was no special cause of weakness, except in com. Wo note more activity in outside, business* both in commerce oud in building. Tho dry goods trade was only fair in any de- Sartmout. Tho unseasonable weather causes a iminlshod demand for seasonable fabrics, and tho inquiry Is still mainly centered in staple articles. Groceries were moving with a mod-, erato degree of activity at the prices current yesterday, where coffees, sugars, rice, soaps, and spices were firmly hold. Teas continue weak and unsettled. There was a light 'demand for butler, and trading was slow at the late decline. No change took place in tho choose, canned goods, or dried fruit markets. Fish wore in liberal {[request at full former prices. Goal woe weak ana unset tled. Tho arrivals by lake continue large, and a doclino is looked for at a not very distant day. Lackawanna and Erie now sell at SIO.OO. Tho hay market was quiet and weak. Ilidoa wore steadier. No change was noted in leather, pig iron, paints, colors, and oils. The demand for lumber continues to improve, and a steadier feeling prevails for most descrip tions, while the higher grades aro very firm. At the docks, tho offerings were rather light, and all cargoes wore sold before noon, the advance obtained yesterday being fully sustained. The nail market is unsettled. A moderate inquiry exists, but there is a general cutting of prices among dealers. Quotations'range from ss.2s(®s.3?Js,'with off. Metals and’tin ners* stock aro quiet and steady.. Iron is in tolerably fair request at former rates. Naval stores aro active and firm.. ; Tho wool market is quiet;, tho stocks are light, and only a moderate west ern demand exists. Now wool is coming in sparingly. All tho grades of broom corn except tho very lowest are fairly active at tho’ruling rates.. Seeds wore quiet and unchanged. The demand for oranges, lemons, and choice apples ■continues active, and prices are ruling quite strong,•whllo pineapples, being in largo supply, aro lower. Choice varieties of potatoes wore m Seed request and firm, but common lots wore nil. Thoro was a fair inquiry for poultry on lo cal account, and, owing to light offerings, prices ruled strong for all choice stock. Eggs wore in largo supply and easier. Highwinos woro active and steady, being In good demand at tho quotation of the post few days. Sales wore reported of 450 brls at SOjtfo per gallon, which included all the offerings. Tho market closed strong, in sympathy with the .tone of the latest Now York advices. Lake freights wore q\iiot, but reported a shade • firmer, shippers being quite willing to pay yes terday’s rates, but would not pay moro, while carriers generally asked advance. A total of five charters was reported (not including two to go to Milwaukee for loads}, which will carry only 54,000 bu wheat, 44,000 nu corn, and 15,000 bu oats. Bail rates wore on corn, and 6o on wheat, bid, to Buffalo, and 120 for corn and for wheat to Kingston or Oswego. Through freights to Now York by lake and rail wore quoted at 270 for wheat, 25c for com, and 160 for oats. Com to Portland, 27c. A comparison of tho grain charters reported, with tho marine list of clearances, shows that several vessels have boon contracted for which woro not reported till they took out their clearance papers. Tho rea son for this is, probably, the fact that tho agents of those vessels aro also insurance agents, and wished to avoid tho competition of other agents in effecting insurance upon tho cargoes. Provisions woro dull and weak, in sympathy with tho market for live hogs, in which prices wore again lower, owing to big receipts. There was a fair amount of trading in mess pork, but it was ohiefiy in tbo way of turning over from June into July, at an established decline of somo 400 per brl, though there was a bettor disposition to take hold near tho close, at the lower figures. Lard was nominally strong at the opening, owing t? tho advance in gold, which aftbots it as an ar ticle of export; but owners could not holdup against the weakness In pork, and conceded Co f>or 100 Ihs. Moats wore dull and Ko per lb owor. The market closed at tho following range of prices: Moss pork, cash or seller May, $10.05 (">10.10; do seller Juno, $10.10@10.15i do seller July. $10,550)10.60; do seller August, $17,000) 17.20; lard, cash or seller May, $8,950)9.00 : do seller Juno, $9.00; do seller July. $9.250)9.80; summer lard, $8.50; do without package, SB.OO.

Thoro was loss demand for shipment than tho average of tho past week, but a fair amount was taken for that purpose, and thoro wore several buying orders for next month from oulnldo. There did not appear to bo much long buying on local account, but tho short In terest took hold rather freely, and tho continued existence of tho discrimination in pilco of cash wheat o.vor seller Juno proves that tho May shorts aro not all covered yet, while it also indi cates thac receipts aro expected to increase next month, with moro settled weather.; and cash wheat will probably bo relatively higher than* options for somo time to como.

Tho more settled weather was tho principal cause of tho doclino, as it brought out numerous orders to sell on country account, and caused some local holders to offer com free ly, in anticipation of lower prices following big receipts. There is no doubt that, if the weather, should sot in fine, a great deal of com would come in that has boon looked up tightly m fear of a poor yield tho next harvest. It is reported,, however, that a good deal of tho com will bo of • low grade, as much loss care has boon taken of it than usual, owing to low prices,' and some, is yet standing in tho fields, ungathorod, from tho last crop. Thoro was a moro active shipping demand than for two or three days past, all the offerings being freely taken at. tho decline. Seller Juno opened at ad vanced to and declined to at tho close.
