MONETARY. • ** Fjudat Evkuiho, May 38.' The local money market continues reasonably easy, and no changes of importance have taken place for several days. Now York exchange was firmer to-day, with •ales between banks at par. The movement of ourrouoy In any direction to or from this city is light. HAB TUB TnCABUUY TUB AMOUNT OV COIN XT claims ? In connection with rumors of tho organization of a clique In Now Hork to got control of and advance the prioo of cash gold in Now York, it is intimated in. some quarters that thoro is nothing like tho amount of actual coin in tho United States- Treasury that is xoport ed in the debt statements from month to month. Notwithstanding that tho raising of this question now may bo done in tho interest of tho hulls, there is undoubtedly some foundation for it. It will bo remembered that about a year ago Treasurer Spinner’s account of tho transactions of tho first Syndicate with tho Treasury showed that a very largo amount of 1862s which had boon “redeemed" by exchang ing now 6 per cents for them wore counted.as coin, and wore included in tho coin balance re ported In tbo monthly debt statements during the whole of tho process of exchanging bonds by the Syndicate. A correspondent or a Now York paper also alleges that while (ho Now York Bub-Treasury reported a coin balance of 843,000,000 on May 1, 86,000,000 of it was known to bo “Treasury paper," thus reduc ing tbo actual coin in tho Sub-Treasury at Now Pork to 837.000.000. Put tbo debt statement for May 1 reported tho coin balance of tbo Treasury at $77,000,000. and tho Very pertinent query lu naturally suggested, If. the Sub-Treasury in Now York only bold $37,- 000,000, is it possible that all tho other Siib- ■ Treasuries of tho United States could have hold bo largo an amount as 840,000,000 of actual coin ? The reports of tho Bureau of Statistics show that at least two-thirds of all tbo dutiable goods imported into the United States are entered at tho port of Now York ; and tho duties—whloh are the only source of com revenue—are paid there. It is reasonable to suppose, therefore, that two thirds of the average coin balance of tho Treasury would be found in the New York Bub-Treasury. Ifc can not bo denied that tho crooked ways of the Treasury, as developed In connection with tho two Syndicates, have created a good deal of reasonable doubt about tho exactness of tho Treasury statements of tho amount of coin on baud. iiESPONsiniLirr ron lost goll>atbbals. The question as to whether a bank ia rospon alble to a borrower of money for the oollalorala he may have deposited oa security for the loan haa been discussed at ooneidorablo length in several financial' papers in various parts of tho country. The Now York Journal of Commerce, usually a good author ity on such topics, bolus that the bank Is not responsible. And for the reason that “a pledge of collaterals is for tho mutual benefit of both parties, and tho pawnee, or cus todian, ia simply bound to use ordinary diil ?enco in tbo care of tbo thing pledged. If bo ails in ibis bo is liable, but only liable whore such a failure can bo shown. Tbo loss la not oven presumptive evidence of a want of due earo; It is, like any othor loss, subject to tbo laws of testimonyTo this, however, tho Phil adelphia Ledger odds : “Whether this principle of non-responsibility applies In cases whore boxes with valuable contents bavo been received on deposit by banks and other liko places of supposed safety, and lost, is a question that ad mits of some dispute. Tho courts generally insist that it does, while jurors, by their verdicts, hold tbo opposite. Tho box busi ness ia not ‘mutually* beneficial as a legiti mate banking transaction, and, so far as tbo National Hanks are concerned, to hold those boxes, with or without pay, Is in direct violation of tho directions of tho Comptroller of the Cur rency. Tho thoory assumed, that the hanks accept tho boxes without consideration, and, therefore, in equity ought not to bo bold respon sible, is not entirely conceded. There may bo no stipulated rent for tbo service, but considera tion is nearly always implied. The depositor’s account, more or loss valuable to tbo bank, al most Invariably follows the box; or its owner, being a prominent man in tho neighborhood, scatters wide tho bank’s bills (tho latter a ser vice more valuable formerly than now) 5 or ho may be a large customer, or in many ways a valued friend to tbo bank, thus rendering con sideration as decided as If mode directly in money. 1 ’ LOCAL STOCK AND ROND MARKET.

It would bo a very good thing to shut off the click of the telegraph instruments on ’Change while the market despatches from other points are being road. No one is allowed to talk, but the Instruments Jcc:p up a noise in each of tho four comers of tho room that prevents many from hearing a word. It was rumored this morning that a break bad occurred on tbo Erie Canal, which may lake a woo*k to repair. This caused quite a sot-bnek in shipping operations for awhile, which was scarcely recovered from at the close of ’Change, and aided other Iniluoucos in malting the markets dull. Reports received this morning stato that it was raining last night nearly oil along tho lino of tho Chicago & Alton Railroad, and over a largo part of Ohio, tho storm being one of tho most se vere of tho very severe ones that have visited tho Northwest this season. It tore up fences, and flooded much of the land so badly that some plows that wore in use yesterday and loft in tho Holds, wore under water to-day. This Is espe cially bad on com. A groat many coses wore voluntarily cited to day in corroboration of our statements this morning in regard to false quotations of prices of produce. It la not necessary to name them, as our object is only to call attention to tho evil in tho hopo that It will bo corrected. Every part of tho commercial world is tinged with swin dle In some form or another. Some doctot- bar ley with brimstone, othorsnmko “patent coffee," and still others manufacture bogus tea, or imitation oysters. Tho American Qro ccr has recently done a good work in ex posing wholesale swindles in canned goods (?); whore a single oyster or half a dozen strawber ries does duty for a pound, while' “greenpoos" are raised from those that have boon dried. All those things aro swindles, and ought to bo de nounced as such, not only in general terms, but in specific language that points to tho swindler as Nathan did to David—“ Thou art tho man." So. too, tho commission man who sells at ono price and reports a lower price to his principal, Is a swindler, though a part of hia ill-gotten gains bo donated to the church, and ought to bo made to attend divine service in the Penitentiary. It 1b really a wonder that honest traders have not long since taken concerted action to clear tholr respective linos of business of tho swin dlers, who really rob tho honest trader as well as tho publio. Tho dishonest commission man can always afford to underbid his conscientious rival, In tho mattor of percentage charged for services, and hence not seldom gets tho bulk of the trade, out of which ho grows rich, while the other can scarcely pay office rent. We note in cidentally that ono way in which these sharks may bo foiled is for honest dealers to take pains to post tho publio prints in regard to tho real soiling prices of goods that are good, both iu condition and quantity. Tbo Metropolitan Branch of tho Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, from Point of Rooks to Wash ington, is now open, and ie expected to give rates to Washington tho samo as to Baltimore, which will bo a reduction of somo 8o per 100 lbs. Tho loading produce markets wore generally quiet to day, with a downward tendency in prices, especially of grain. Tho severe storm of lost night was followed by sunny skies this morning, which again induced many to think, after Agng, that “ the bitterness of death is past." This did not so much bring out more sellers as it reduced tho number of buyers, especially as tho shipping movement was dull owing to othor causes. . No changes wore reported in tho dry goods market, a moderate amount of trading being done at tho prices current earlier in tho week. In tho grocery market business continues slack, with prices generally easy, coffees being tho only article showing positive strength. Tho different grodca advanced a to-day. Sugars were again weak and unsettled—notwithstanding there is a steadily good demand for them—and a further reduction of an y&o, both in refined and in raw grades, is noted. Tho only other change report ed was a frjb decline in Proctor «fc Gamble's Gorman mottled soap. Cheese was quiet. Goal mot with a light demand at SIO.OO for Lackawanna and Eno ; at $0.50 for Hlossburg : and at $6.00. for Wilmington. Prices of fish were unchanged, though for cod, mackerel, aud whitofish they wore rather more firmly hold. Dried fruits remain quiet and easy. Currants and figs wore a trifle lower. No now features woro developed in tho hoy, pig-iron, tobacco, and leather markets. Hides woro firmer. The oil trade was fair at about former rates, a slight decline in turpentine being tho only noticeable change. Tho lumber trade at both tho yards and tho docks continues active, and tbo market is tolera bly steady for all grades. The receipts by lake are barely sufficient to supply tho demand, and common lumber Is firm at the prices ruling. Choice grades are also firm. Metals and tinners’ stock are dull and unchanged. Tho demand for nails is active at $5.12% rates. There was no change in tho iron trade; business is not brisk though fair lor tho season ; the quotations re main the same. Building materials are dull. Fair, steady weather would perhaps produce a better trade, but at present tho de mand Is light. Prices are unchanged. The in quiry for wool is still from Western mills, aud the given quotations aro for old; now is from 3@50 lower. Seeds woro in moderate request, tho trading being principally in millet and Hun garian, prices for which, owing to largo offer ings, aro weak, and millet is quotably lowor. Apples woro more plenty aud lower, while oranges and lemons remain firm. Strawberries are coming in slowly. Poultry was plenty aud lower. Eggs also ruled weak at ll@l2c. Higbwinos woro moro active, and %o higher, under a good demand, which was due to light stocks hero and an advance in Now York. Sates woro reported of 200 brio at 90)tfo per gallon, aud tbo market dosed strong at 00Mo bid and 010 asked. Lake freights wore dull and Arm. There are very vessels hero, aud few wanted. Car riers ashed tho same as yesterday : Co for corn, for wheat, and 45.(0 for oats. by sail to Buffalo. Corn to Boston and Portland quoted at 25@200 on through rate. A total of two char ters was reported (besides ono from Milwaukee), which wiU carry out from this port 27,000 bu wheat and 30,000 bu corn. Provisions wore again moderately active for tho bo&hod, but weak, offerings being larger than tho demand, especially on moss pork, which de clined 250 per brl. Lard was dull and 100 por 100 tbs lower ; and moats wore more active at a decline of %o por lb ; though live hogs wore re ported Armor. The business all round was prin cipally in changing over, by parties who wont to keep in tho trade without carrying tbo property. Wo note that Cincinnati was quoted strong, and Now York Armor at tho close. The market closed at tho following range of prices: Moss pork, cash or seller May, $15.50; do seller Juno, $1G.50@16.56; do seller July, $15.85@15.G0 ; do seller August, $10.00(2) 10.26; lard, cash or seller May, $8.40; do seller Juuo, $8.40@8.45; do seller July, $8.G5@8.70: summer lard, do without package, $7.50.

Corn was less active, and %@%o lower than on ’Change yesterday, but was generally strong at tbo decline, which was partially duo to the loss favorable advices from tho East aud from Europe, with tho prospect of larger receipts here. Tbo torriblo storm of last night, following a wot season, would probably Imvo caused an advance in spite of tho abovo facts, but for tho Armor tone in lako freights, tho scarcity of vessels, and tho break in tho Erie Caual, which discouraged shippers from operating to any groat extent. Tho principal feature of tho market .to-day wrb tho widening discrimination in favor of options for delivery after Juno due to offerings for this month and next, which wore raorouuraorous than wanted by buyers. This fact was partly owing to tho difficulty of carrying com, many capital ists not caring to loud money on it, and partly to a desire to avoid the risk of bad condition which many fear, should the damp atmosphere continue into hot weather. Seller June opened at 38% c, declined to 38%q, and advanced to 88%0 at tho close. Seller duly sold at 419/@ 42% c, and seller August at 44@44%0, both closing at tho outside.

We are aware that sound policy, and tho true Interests of farmers, dictate that they should forward to market tbo pro* duco of their Innas as soon after it is ready na It can bo prudently and practically done; but tbls docs not im ply that everything should bo rushed to the front for the sake of early sales, especially hogs, la the spring, which cost so little to keep and grow. Just now they ate being driven In and forced to sale in a somi duvolopod condition, unsatisfactory to tho sol* lor, lu pecuniary results. The winter cure of hoga Is rapidly passing off. Tho country is short of supplies—lt has on hand nothing more than it requires for its usual aud strictly dependent customers, and until it gets up an other stock, it should not export a dollar’s worth. By tho farmer holding back, and feeding bis stock mitU late, it will increase tbclr size and corresponding lm- J>rovo their value. Tho conservative course of hold ng hogs back, aud merely feeding the markets during tho spring aud summer mouths, will servo to increase tho desire of buyers and accelerate prices, and eventu ally carry figures to a full if not high point in late sum mer. wheu remunerative prices may bo obtained by the producer— not only scouring a good return for the hoga sold, but placing on opening value on tbo fall crop, which should be continued at least until December, thereby giving as a compensatory return to tho farmer, a portion of the profit, which through tho cheapners of hogs lust winter, has passed Into the hands of packers and speculators the present season. SUtiAII. Tho Now York IKor/d prophecies lower prices in sugar. Tho facts gleamed during a reporto rial visit to aovorallcading Arms are thus summar ized: “It wan learned that the present stock of sugar, both hero aud in Europe, is unprecedent edly largo, and that tho crop in Ouba and tho other producing countries will be largely in ex cess of previous years; that prices nro ruling low at present, and in all probability will bo still lower. Tho United States receives sugar from Cuba, from tbo variousWost India Islands, from Brazil, from Manilla, from Java,'and other parts of tho East Indies—in all amounting to botwoou 550.000 and 576,000 tons, of which about 825.000 tons comes in to Now York. About 70 por cent of all tins is received from Cubp. A largo excess, therefore, in tho drop of this is land cannot fail to havo an appreciable effect ou tho market. The domestic production of this article, which, previous to tho War, was very large, has so far fallen off as scarcely to bo con sidered at all in tho general result. Louisiana produces between 2,000 and 8,000 tons, which is more than Is produced Ly all the other States put together. Besides tho supply of sugar mado from tho sugar-cane, there Is some 15,000 or 20.000 tons of sugar made from the maple syrup, a little tnndo from sorgo-cane in tho Western Htatos, and a small quantity of sugar mado from boot-root iu California. In round numbers tho ycariv consumption of sugar from all sources may bo estimated at about 720,000'toua. LATEST, Wheat was moderately active iu the afternoon, declining %o.
