MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY. Tuesday Evening, May 2f). The local money market continues tolerably Well supplied with funds. Tho National Banks aro endeavoring to keep pretty strong, because ihoy havo boon expecting a call from tho Comp troller for a statement, for several weeks past, though there is no moro reason for oxpeoting it toow than thoro was a week or two ago. As far ms tho futuro can ho foreseen now, thoro seems no reason to fear hut that money will remain tolerably easy all this spring and summer. In tho open market, money is to bo had on primo -collaterals at 10 per cent, aud while some of tho 'banks oro buying outside paper at considerably ■higher rates than that, they aro also offering to Joan on call at 10 and oven at 8 per cent. 1 Owing to an Increase in tbo country demand tor currency, and partly also to an increase of exchange, tho price of Now York exchange drop ped from par yostorday to 600 per SI,OOO dis count to-day. TUB SPRING TRADE of Chicago has not hoou up to tho expectations of our wholesalers and Jobbers. Considering tho exiromo backwardness of tho season. It could not well ho otherwise. But while many of tho merchants .complain of * smaller volume of trado than they probably would havo had if tbo woathor had been moro propitious, wo hoar of no such in timations or an ontlro failure of tho spring trade «a oomo to ns from Now York. Thoro, tho late boss of tho • season has prevented any demand ■for an important and expensive class of dry goods Intended for tho Intermediate weather be tween winter and summer. Tho advance in tho price of gold since the beginning of tho year has &Ibo deranged the calculations of many of tho importers, and involves considerable losses in cases whore Importers had sold goods to cus tomers eomo months ago on a basis of green backs worth 67 to 88 cents on tho dollar, and now find that ihoy must replace thorn with greenbacks worth only 84 to 85 cents on tho dollar. A higher price for gold implies a lower price for tho commodities ex changed for it, unless the currency prices aro prompt to rise in accordance with the advance in gold, which Is not often the case. It frequently requires some months before prices of commodi ties rise in accordance with the rise in the price of gold. Tho prices of our products, which are fixed in gold in tho groat consumers’ markets, lilco Liverpool, and fluctuate from day to day ia all the markets of this country in accord ance with tho fluctuations in Liverpool, follow tho prico of gold vory quickly. Bui with manufactured aud imported goods it is different. When gold advances rapidly their J trices lag behind, and for a timo thoy are owor in gold in this country than before the advance iu gold began, and vice versa, when gold declines rapidly and steadily, their moro slowly-moving prices make tho actual gold vuluo of the current prices of imported aud manufactured goods higher than it should be. It follows, therefore, that daring the process of a rise iu gold the importers ana manufacturers suffer, and during tho process of a decline thoy gain moro than their apparent profits. REDEMPTIONS OF CURRENCY. A few days ego the Postmaator-Gonoral de cided that after the let of July loiters containing currency sent through tho mails to or from' tho Treasurer of tho United States.may ho registered without charge, but tho postage on them must bo paid as on all other like mailable matter. TUE NEW TRADE SILVER DOLLAR authorized by tho “Coinage act of 1873 ” will weigh 420 grains, which is eight grains heavier than tho old silver dollar, aud will bo worth iu silver. BAN FIIANCIBCO BANKS. The now “ Anglo-Cnliforniau ” Bank to be es tablished in San Francisco is to have a capital of $G,000,000, or just about equal to that of tho B&uk of California, which has a capital of $6,- 000,000 and a surplus of somewhere near sl,- 000,000. Thoro ore now fear National gola noto banks iu California,—oue iu Sacra mento with a capital of $300,000, ono in San Diego with a capital' of $200,000, and two in San Francisco with an aggregate cap ital of $2,600,000. Including tho new bank first mentioned, tho aggregate capital of tho com mercial banks of Ban - Francisco will be $17.- 000,000.' TUE POST-OFFICE SAVINGS BANKS OF ENGLAND have been a success in that country. Tho plan was introduced by Mr. Gladstone twelve years ago. Since thattiinoS, people havo opened accounts in theso postal banks, making deposits in tbo aggregate of $800,000,000. Tho withdrawals, a portion of which, of course, was accrued in terest, amounts to $170,000,000 ; while at tho present time, 1,600,000 persons have their savings invested in these banks to the amount of $100,000,000. Tho Interest allowed on deposits is 4 per cent. One of tho features that recom mend this plan to tho public is that tbo depositor can. upon identification, draw bis money at any post-office in tho country, thus securing, to some extent, tho advantages of a traveling letter of credit. ' Notwithstanding those advantages in cident to tho system in England, it is doubtful if they would not bo overbalaucod by the whole institution being turned into a political machine If it woro established in tho United States, as proposed by tho Administration.

Total (820 cars), 120,- 000 bu. Tho inaccuracy of the reports of tho produce movement, furnished dally to tho Board of Trade, is tho subject of wide-spread complaint. Those by lake, which use to bo passably correct, nowsoom to boas faulty as those furnished by tbe.raiiroads. And jet tho newspapers aud tho Board of Trado pay for tho misinformation. The St. Louis Democrat is welcome to all tho capital it can make out of the following false hood: The TnniDNS pleads manfully forthe Chicago Board of Trade, and assures (ho grumbling shippers, who now flank Chicago and scud their grain direct to Now York, that tho Legislature Is alone to blamo, and inti mates that if Chicago had Its own way there would bo no trouble In grading inferior and damaged grain as No. 1. The Tribune has said that tho inspection is correct, but that, whether good or bad, tho State is responsible therefor, and not tho Chicago Board of Trade. Tho State passed tho law, and appointed tho Inspectors. Hence tho following statement, which tho Democrat makes in another issue, is equally without foundation: So fearful are tho Obieagoneso that a wrong thing may be done In their groin market, that they have enacted a law which forbids the Inspector to grade any lot of grain higher than tho poorest quality It con tains. THE MARKETS. Tho loading produce markets wore weak to day,-almost without exception,—notwithstanding tho continued bad weather. They all opened heavy, with a considerable pressure to soil, and declined extensively, tho day being a weaker one in a general way than has boon known in several months previously. Tho receipts wore only moderate, though somewhat greater than tho recent average, aud tho shipping movement was fair, under the circumstances. There was only a moderate movement in any line ofdry goods, while, aside fromfprints, season able dress goods, and some of the leading brands of brown aud bleached cottons, trade was sluggish. A further reduction In certain brands of prints is noted, aud also iu Nashua, Dwight, and Lawreuco fine brown cottons. Groceries wore in fair request, and, with tho exception of refined sugars, which wore weak and au K° lower, former quotations wero generally well sustained. The only article in the lis. for which the market exhibited anv unusual firmness was coffees, which are still (he subject of con siderable speculative inquiry. -Butter met with a good local and outside demand, and prices wore steadier all around. There is an inadequate supply of really obolco qualities, aud such find quick sale at 24@27c. Tho poorest sorts sell at 10@20o. Bagging remains quiet and compara tively steady at the quotations, or at 80>£o for Stark, 860 for Ludlow, 34)£0 for Lewiston, and at 320 for American. No now features wore de veloped in the choose aud canned goods mar kets, tho demand continuing small at for mer quotations. Dried fruits wore quoted quiet with prices generally easy, though not materially lower, except for raisins, which wero marked down to $2.55@2.05,—a de cline of Co. Fish wero again in liberal request at firm prices. Hay was iu moderate supply, aud, uudor a better demand, ruled firmer, pressed timothy selling at $15.00@17.00, aud prairie at $12.00(5)13.60 on track. The hide mar ket was more settled and steadier. No import ant changes were noted in tho pig iron, paints, wood, tobacco, and oil markets. Tho demand for lumber continues active auo the market rules steady. The offerings at the docks have boon light for a day or so past, whild a good inquiry existed, and all cargoes have sold readily on arrival. The hardware merchants re port on improved demaud for metals, nails, tiu £lato. Ac., the quoted prices being generally ad ored to. Iron and steol aro without particular change; tbotrado for tho season is fair at tho given rates. Seeds wero quiet, excepting timothy, which met with more inquiry, tho better grades being mostly wanted, and owing to light offerings, were hold bighar. Sales ranged from $3.0U@4.25. Other seeds were quiet, and millet and Hungarian being plenty and easier. Thera was no change in tho wool markets, tho trade is light and confined to tho wants of the Western mills. Choico poach blow potatoes sell readily at tho full prices of yesterday, but other varieties aro slow. Groou fruits are in good request and firm. Ohoico ap ples are scarce and strong at $4.00(3)6:60 per brl. Poultry was in hotter supply and moderately ac tive at lower prices. Eggs sold at 12@12>$o to tho city trade. • Highwiuos were very quiet, but firm at tho re cent advance, holders offering to sell at 900, and refusing to take loss. Sales wore restricted to CO brls at 000 per gallon. Lake freights wero moderately active, but lower to Buffalo, with no change to lower Inko ports. A total of 11 charters was reported which will carry xmt 50,000 bn wheat ana 230,000 bu corn. Bates to Buffalo wero ou wheat and CX@o)<o 0Q corn, closing at tbo inside j to Kingston or Oswego, 18c on wheat and 120 ou corn ; through to Boston on corn, 2Co via Buf falo, and 20c via Ogdousburgh ; corn to Port land, 250 via Sarnia. Bail freights wore also quoted Cc per 100 tbs lowor ou fourth olaas, now 4Co to Now York and CUo to Boston. Provisions wore more active, and again weak. Mobb pork declined 20@250 per brl, and lard 200 per 100 lbs, while moats wore dull and nominally unchanged. There was very little demand, and the Bales reported wore made bocauuo holders proßßod their property on the market, ami buy ers took hold at the decline, principally to till ehortH, of which there are not many now out. Live hogs were lower, and this helped to weak ness la product, especially as the supply of hoga promises to keep up during the summer. The market closed • at the following rango of prices; Mobs pork, cash or seller Hay, $10.00; do seller Juno, $10.00(^10,05; do seller July. $10.40@10.45; do seller August, $10.80(2) 17.00; lard, cash or seller May, SB.O5} do seller Juno, $8.C5@8.70; do seller July, $8,90(2)8.95 j summer lard, $7.80; do without package, $7.80.

Flour was more active, at former prices, the reduction iu freights bringing out a bettor ship* plug demand, which, with a steady fooliug la New York, enables dealers in to maintain quota tions, notwithstanding tbo weakness in grain. Moat of the sales wore believed to be for direct export to Europe. Bran was again lower.

Tbo freight advices woro con- Hiding, ami Now York was quoted easier. Tho brat brought out numerous sellers for next month, which mado tho market almost panicky for a while, as there woro very few buyers. Gash wheat was relatively strong, ns many of those who are short for this month seized on tho op portunity to fill In, being further impelled by tho rapid reduction of our stocks in storo. Wo had but 821,427 hu of tho speculat ive grade on hand on Saturday ovoning, and tho stock has boon further lessoned to tho extent of 100,000 bu since then, adding in tho oily consumption to tho oxcobb of shipments over receipts, while tho shipping demand con tinues good, being further stimulated to-day by a decline in freights. This mado tho shorts nervous, as tho end of tho mouth is near, while thoro wae no such anxiety for further deliveries, as receipts aro expected to increase. The busi ness of to-day, outside- of buying for shipment, was largely in settlement of May deals. Tho option of seller Juno opened at 91.80%, declined to 91.20, advanced to SI.OO, ami closed at $1.20)4'. Seller tho mouth sold at closing at $1.82)«f.

Corn was moderately active, and l@l%o lower, tho weakness being greatest on tho Juno option. Now York was quoted dull and nominal, but our decline had boon effected before that report came in, being caused by prospects of had woathor (with dampness) and a rather extensive calling of margins on tho part of tho short interest. This caused numerous holders to soil out, or attempt to soil, and tho offerings at 0110 tlmo woro very largo; tho shorts filling in liberally at tbo decline. It was said by some that tho Inrgor operators woro throwing tho smaller ones overboard: but It is moro probable that they sold because it was not convenient to put up the margins required. Tho weather is still bad for corn; but thoro were nu merous orders to sell on country nccoupt; evi dently from parlies who hoped to soil off a por tion at tho advance which tlioJT expected would ousuo to-day. Tuoro woro too many of tho ono mind. Seller Juno opened at 40% c, declined to 30% c, and closed at 39%0. Seller July sold at 41%@42%0; and seller August at 43k’@44c, both closing with tho inside hid. Seller tho mouth, or regular No. 2, sold at 37%(®38%0, and current receipts at 38%@30%c, closing at 3Su for regular. Gash sales woro roportod of 800 bu No. 2at89%0; 18,000 bu do at 390; 4,800 bu do at 83%o; 5,000 bu do at 38% c; 10,000 bu do at 0S%o; 49,000 bu do at 83% c; 65,000 bn do at 83% c ; 30,000 bu do at 33c; 5,000 bu do (short receipts) at 37% c; 5,400 bu do at 40c, free on board; 13,400 bu rejected at 37c. Total, 198,400 bu. Oats wero more active, and 1c lowor, but qaito steady at tho docltno. New York was quoted firm, but tho fact that receipts wore more than twice as largo as tho shipments, and sympathy with wheat and corn, was too much for holders.

THE CHICAGO DRY GOODS MARKET. Toesdat Evening, May 30. Blnco the last review nothing has occurred to disturb the quiet so lung prevalent in this department of trade, tbo demand, as was the case earlier in the sea son, being entirely consumptive, and mainly restricted to supplying immediate necessities. Some of the Job bing tiouecs report a fair distribution, but, in the ag gregate. business la not us largo or active ns in former years at a corresponding period, and is fur from being satisfactory. The extreme backwardness of the sojf sou and the prolonged stringency of tho money mar ket has no doubt been quite as seriously felt in tho country ns in tho city, and it must bo confessed that tho immediate future, so far as concerns tho dry goods trade, dues not wear a particularly cheerful look. Our merchants have en countered so many drawbacks to a successful business that they have at times become restless, ami ollcrcd concessions in hope of stimulating trade, but buyers buvo at no time been speculatively Inclined, and have persistently restricted tbolr purchases to the actual wants of consumption. Prices of prints, bleached and unbleached cottons, and some other lines are now really /oio—lu fact, below tho cost of production, and that under a bettor demand tho market for the more popular makes would react, is entirely probable. Tho following is from tho New York Jlullet iut " Thu marketfor cotton goods continues steady with a moderate demand for the several descriptions of staple fabrics, for which prices are unchanged, al though It is reported that thn agents of one of tho leading mills contemplate advancing tho price of flue brown sheetings to tho quotations from which they were reduced about two weeks ago. The carpet trade, though less active than lost week, continues fair for the season, and former prices have, with u few unimportant exceptions, boon firmly ad hered to. Stocks aro not largo, and as tbo demand promises to continue good for sumo tlmo to como there Is a confident feeling among jobbers generally. Among tbo changes In cotton goods slnco our last report wo note a reduction of a y, o in Dwight, Continental, Nashua, and Lawrence lino browns. mid a )/o reduc tion In Merrimack, Ournor, Wamaultu, and Amoakeag prints.
