MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY. SAitmDAV Even two, May 31. During tho past week the money markets both East and West have grown easier. It is possible, .that tbo foci that tbo National Bonks havo re ceived tho call for their statement, and naturally do not expect to havo another oho sooh, induces thorn to lot out money a little more freely, but aeido from this tho supply of money seems to bo Increasing. Deposits at the bonks are as largo os I they havo boon for six months, and tho supply of money offered in the open market is largo .enough to mako a good demand for business A sboro ia considerable currency being sent to tho various wheat markets In tho Northwest to bo used, doubtless, in paying for wheat which is now coming into tho country stations much moro rapidly than last week. Tho amounts of ,'oar roncy ordered from hero to MUwauooo, Winona, llodwing. and other places in that direction yes terday and to-day Indicate a moro active move ment of tho grain in tho Northwest, and the probability of larger receipts both hero and at liilwankoo noxt week. , Exchange was sold between banka to-day at 515 cents per SI,OOO premium.

LATEST, New York, May 31.—Money was very easy to-day, opening at 7 per coat for call loans, and closing at 3 to 4 per cent. Foreign exchange was stronger, and primo bankers advanced the ratc&to 108# for sixty days* sterling,and 300# for sight. The actual - business vras at a concee elon of I*lo to # from the asking quotations. There Wore Indications of a demand for remittance on no count of called bonds, and no doubt bankers advanced the rates in anticipation of an increase In this demand before the closing of next Wednesday's mall. Customs receipts to-day, $201,251. The Syndicate, estimates that only $6,500,000 gold Will be paid out In the settlement of tho $50,000,000 S-20 bonds called m for Juno 1. To-day the Assistant Treasurer at this port paid out $3,200,000 gold on this account, Washington cheeks for the same having been presented. The Notional Banks subscribed for $8,000,000 of now fires, payable in gold, •nd tho Syndicate had orders to buy gold therefor, but Tor some time past they have been picking up colled bonds, which answer the same purpose for tho Gov ernment, and facilitate the funding operation. Gold was lower in tho morning, and declined from 110# toll?#, but daring tho afternoon became firm and recovered to 118# at tho close. Tho rates paid Tor carrying ware 1,3,3,4, and 5 per cent, and llat for borrowing. . The Assistant Treasurer paid out to-dny on ac count of interest and in redemption of 6-30 bonds over $4,000,000. During the week $210,000 3 per cent cor till cates were redeemed with legal tenders, which loaves only $30,000 of those certificates outstanding. Clearances, $00,449,000. Governments were dull and steady all day. State bonds ruled quiet; Tonncasoes heavy. The stock speculation was very dull at tbo opening and close, but between the hours of 12 and 1 the deal ings were more animated. The fluctuations, outsldo of Pacific Mail, wore only # lo # per cent up to mid day, but after that tlmo a general advance of V to 1 per cent took place. This, however, was partially lost, but at the close prices advanced again to nearly the beat figures of the day, Thero was no regular call this Afternoon, out of respect to the memory of E. D. . Stanton, a member of tho Board, and this only added to the generally dull condition of affairs. Sterling, 108#. aovznKviCKT soups.

There la, however, still a largo amount of every, class of property being sold except “Inside" business property and Ural-class residence prop erty in tbo central parts of tho city. Tho great bulk of the business is still in tbo sale of cheap lots for immediate improvement, at prices rang ing from S6OO to $1,500 each. Next to this the activity is still ‘ln suburban lands. Wo boar of no loss than four largo solos of land at Washing ton Heights, at prices ranging fsom 61,000 to $1,500 per acre, none of which 1 however, have been finally closed up so as to transfer the land, tbo delay in getting’ abstracts of title being the chief obstacle. Sev-: oral transactions in land near Cornell, and also near tho Northwestern car-shops, are also await ing tbo same kind of document's before they can bo completed. Tho throe neighborhoods above mentioned aro tbo only suburban ones in which' thoro is apodal activity. As for prices, there has boon no noticeable change in any quarter for a •onplo of weeks past. Owners of land In tho three above neighborhoods aro offering a groat deal of land fop sale, but, feeling seouro that the railroad facilities which they now possess must Bfenlually make their property much more valu able than now, aro not disposed to make any concessions lu prices. TUB NOUTHWESTEBN OAB-fIUOrS, The walls of tho round-house of tho North western Company aro now about 10 to 12 feot high, and tbo work is being pushed with tho greatest possible rapidity. As soon from tho Washington Street entrance to Central Park It looks as. big as Fort Homier, and, when It Is re membered that this Is only one of a dozen os big 1 that are to bo built there, It will furnish an' approximate notion of how the whole mass of buildings will help to break up the dead uni formity of tho prairio northwest of the park. . J. D. Harvey has gold within tho last ton daya quite a number of lote in tho Chicago A North western Oar*Bhop Subdivision» for resident pur poses. Tho Wost w Chlcago 'Land Company will commonco tho orootlou of fifteen six-room cot tages in this locality noxt week. A FINE nUBINRBS ULOOK has just boon completed by’the Ewing Eetato, on tho comer-'of West Madison and Peoria slrooto, to bo known as tbo “ Madison Block.” It is a spaoloda throe-story and basement brick with stone trimmings, with 150 foot frontage on Madison and 110 foot on Peoria streets, The first floor is designed for stores (wholesale and retail). Tho second floor is arranged for offices, but will havo also a largo dining hall and billiard hall.' The third floor contains lorty-fivo lodging rooms, single and on suite, which are finely finished, and already furnished and ready for oc cupancy. This iloor, in connection with tho dining-room below, is, iu fact, a now addition to tho hotel capacity of the city. Mr. George Sturgos purchased, a few days ago, two lots 25x150 each, on tho southwest comer of Pine and Huron streets, at $275 per front foot, and will build thoro this spring.

Tho West Bldo Park Commissioners aro trying hard to put at least a portion of Control park into a condition that will mako It a pleasant . place of resort this summer. Tho sum of about $75,000 has now been expended on this Park, and though' a groat portion of it has boon for rudimentary work, such as drainage, enrichment of tho soil, oto., an area of about ono-tonth of . tbo whole pork has been beautified with green sward and trees, and only lacks now tho comple tion of a fow good walks and driveways to mako it a place of resort. It is intended to put thoso Into a condition that will mako thorn avail able for qbo so as to throw tbo oastom portion of tho Park open to tho public about tho Fourth of July. It is lust about Fontr minutes’drive at an ordinary jog-trot from tbo Oonrt-Honao to Oobtral Park in tbo present condition of tbo roods. If the streets west of Western aventio were improved with gravol or macadam, or oven it tbo dirt road wore rolled so as to bo smooth In dir weather, it would not bo more than thirty minutes’ drive. But for tbo great majority of people who cannot afford to own or biro horses, tbo chief obstacle to a visit to the pork 1b LACK 07 MEANS 07 TRANSIT. The Hodlson street. horse-cars now run no further than Western avenue, though tbo West ' Side Hallway Company have intimated that they will soon extend their track to tbo Groat Eastern Railroad, a distance of a quarter of a mile. This would bring the horse core within ono mile of Control Fork. There is also an endeavor being made by sozno of tbo owners of property between Western avenue and the park to extend tbo track the remainder of the way to the park at their own expense if tbo railway company will operate it. The West Chicago Land Company, who aro largely interested in making the land next west of the park accessi ble, will also probably aid the enterprise. The mam entrance to tbo park for carriages will bo from-Washington street, which within a week will bo roiled so as to make it good driving on tbo natural dirt road from the Great Eastern crossing to tho park. This would only loavo a gap of about % of- a mile of poor road be tween tho pavement on Warren avenue or West Washington street and the part of tbo latter street that will bo made passable in dry weather by rolling. Tbo view from tbo founda tion of - .... iu .... ICO ICS i... 176 . 180 .... 08 100 ...,100 which Btanda directly in tho lino of West Wash ington street, is flno in several directions. Look ing book toward tho city, tho tall splco of tho Union Park Church is tho control object at tho end of the stroot, and, though it is 2# miles dis tant from this entrance to Control Park, it seems not more than one. Looking directly west, tho view is equally attractive. The suburban towns of Austin, Ridgoland, Oak Park, Harlem, River Forest, Haywood, and Molroso are all strung along the Northwestern Railroad, within a dis tance of 7 miles west from tho park. Tbolluo of their location corresponds to tho lino of sight, and has tho effect of grouping them together, so that they appear to be one town, with a group of four prominent church steeples rising from clus ters of whito cottages and trees., ON CENTRAL PARK BOULEVARD connecting Central Park with Humboldt Park a groat deal of work has boon done, and it begins to show what it will bo when completed. Ou tbo entire distance between tbo two parks, about two miles, all tbo various roadways have boon graded and aro ready for tbo gravel, aud six rows of trees of a uniform height of about 25 to SO foot have boon planted which are now alive and grow ing finely. For over amilo north of Humboldt Park also the boulevard bos boon planted with a fine double row of ashes and elms at least SO foot high. In view-of tho limited amount of funds at tbo command of tho 'West Side Park Board they have done much more thah they got credit for in tho popular mind. Oho reason is that their work is, in & manner, isolated and disconnected with tho city by reason of the look of any good driving road, or any convenient means of accosa by horse or steam cars. As for ■ their work in tbo parks, and particularly iu Central Park, it is probable it will NEVER DE FULLY APPRECIATED as it ought. Tho sites of tho various West Side parks were os promising as it was possible for thorn to bo as regards beautification. They were a perfectly doad-lovol of wot, clammy soil, on which nothing but willows or cottonwoods could bo mado to grow, at all. In Central-Park a groat’ oxr ".ration baa boon mado for an ornamental lako, aud tho earth taken from it has booh used to turn tbo original fiat prairio into a gently rolling surface with ele vations from eight to nine foot above tho origi nal surface. These have been mado so natural, and begin to lock bo attractive with their green slopes and groups of trees', that uino persons out of ton would never suspect they wore not mado so by aud that art had only laid out a few walks, trimmed out tho natural growth of underbrush aud trees, and planted some cul tivated shrubs. Whereas, every feature that begins to look as if It might eventually bo made the foundation of something attractive, has boon . created by art. 1 BUMUAHY OP TnANBFEnS FOn THE were.

No 17,772 10,404 14,817 The rapid decrease In the amount of oar stocks of groin, especially iu wheat, Is duo to two causes. The receipts are lighter than tho aver age, except in oats, having boon kept back by bad weather, or diverted to other points through dissatisfaction with tbo inspection. Then tho shipping movement Is really a free one, and in such few hands (by loko) that shippers are able to dictate in regard to rates. This being the case, thoro is a uottor margin of profit than usual to tbo shipper. The history of tbo grain trade in tho past shows that fully two-thirds of tho timo our m&rkot has boon relatively higher than New York. Hence shippers have boon losers. Thoro is, howovor. ono important element of loss to shippers in tbo past, which Is only in directly connected with dilreroncos in prico in tho two cities, and which the shippers havo it in their power to remedy. It is a notorious fact that a great proportion of tho grain shipped from Chicago to Now York, by Chicago parties, la Bold to arrive on tho seaboard, ana that such solo lias often boon nothing moro than a call to tho Now York operator. • when thograin is taken all right if thoro bo a profit* In it ; but if iho market havo declined materially between tho times of buying and' arrival iho grain Is carefully inspected, and has often boon refused under each circumstances on the ground that It was not equal to sample. It is useless for tho shipper to protest In such cases, because he has no security, and cannot afford to pay domurrago: honco ho is obliged to .put tho grain on tho market, and perhaps soils It to tho same man ot tho market prico of that day. which may bo several cents below iho price * first agreed upon. It is no wonder that under such circum stances many would-ko shippers hold book; as only a few can wiold capital enough to ho able to tako tho chances. And this. is tho groat secret of onr present low rates of loko freight: tho absence of competition among shippers. It would scorn, howover,'that Ohlcago is now influential enough to havo a voice in the matter, and it is probable that so long as our Oliicago shippers aro obliged to take gram on tbo graded plan their best coarse would bo to insist on dolivoringit by grado, not by sam ple. They coaid then demand marginal referen ces which would prptoct thorn against tho moan evasions from which they havo so severely suf fered In tho post. A good deal. of grumbling is ' hoard on tho Board of Trade In regard to our Chicago iuspoo i tion of grain. A wlmo ago it was com : now it is wheat. A good deal of wheat has boon re cently inspected in as No. 8, which weighs SGK @57 lbs to tbo measured bushel, and is claimed' to bo sound and reasonably clean, as required for No. 2 spring, which need not weigh moro than 6G lbs to tho measured bushel. • Tho receiv ers of this grain claim that thoir principals have not Justice dono them, and will send tho rest of thoir grain elsewhere. We know nothing of tho rights of those cases. Thoro is no doubt that it would bo verr pleasant to some ■ Inspec tors to put grain iu tbo highest grade it will hear, and equally pleasant to some others to exhibit tbeir critical Judgment by spying out reasons for grading tbo other-way. • Thodnty of tho Chief Inspector is to see that neither of thoso leanings bo followed, because any departure from tho golden mean, in oithor direction, is in justice to somo. But tho rules roquiro to bo -properly interpreted, os tho gravest cruelties havo often boon perpetrated in tho namo of Justice, and in accordance with tho letter of tho law. Wo note that several parties who have hith erto resisted tho payment of fees for the oat iuspootion of grain, claiming that they did not wont such service performed, are being throat* cnod with suits, and some have paid rather than go to law. It is understood that some of those gentlemen have offered to tho Commissioners to make up a tost cose; hut that request was not acceded to. It is thought probable that the par ties interested will take concerted action, with intent to prove that tho Stato has no con stitutional right to Qx&ot fees for such service when tho owners of tho grain do not waut tho Inspectors to meddlo with It. THIS MARKETS. The lending produce markets wore moderately, active to-day, and most of them wore steady, though tho preponderant tendency was to weak* ness. Tho business transacted was nearly all of tho speculative order; selling up to Juno deals, or changing over into future months, so as to prepare for deliveries on Monday. There was not so much selling to do as was expected, many of tho shorts having boon filled yesterday. Tho weather was fine, and tho receipts largo, show* ing that in this direction there was no suspen sion of effort on Decoration Day. Dry goods jobbers report continued quiet In that department of trade, tho principal inquiry, as for some time past, being in the shape of small orders of a miscellaneous character, to complete assortments ; consequently, the tone of tho market is not particularly buoyant,though with tho exception of certain linos of goods now out of season, and some unpopular makes, the quotations aro pretty generally adhered to. Tho grocery trade was again dull, with little or no. alteration in prices. Coffees are still hold with pronounced firmness, and. syrups, molasses, spices, and rice, are also fairly firm, but asido from those there is some shading. Tho extreme low prices of ' sugars are attracting tho attention of .buyers ana liberal orders aro being placed,' but tho: market is still lacking In strength, large orders being filled ut a concession from the quotations'. Teas aro more settled and steadier. A steadily fair demand exists fof good to choice butter, and 1 stocks aro kept down to a low point. Oboico ’ yellow is ohiolly inquired for, and solos wore readily effected at 23@250. Tho poorer sorts sold anywhnro from 10c to 180. Bagging con tinues quiet and cosy at SGXo for Stark, 050 -for Ludlow, 84Wo for Lewiston, and 82X° for American, xhoro was a moderate amount of trading iu tho choose - market at the prices currant earlier in tho week, or-at 12)<@]3|£o for Now York factory, atid at 11@ 12o>£ for western do. Coal was again unsettled, tho tendency being downward. Only a small . business was doing at SIO.OO for Lackawanna and Erie; $9.00@9.60 for Dloesburg, and at SO.OO for Wilmington. In tho fish and dried fruit markets there wore no now developments, tho former continuing fairly aotivo at firm prices, and the latter ruling quiet and easy. Hay was in light supply and firmer. .Under- a good demand sellers wore asking and obtaining COo per ton advance. Tho hide and leather mar kets wore quiet as previously quoted. A liberal movement In tbo loading oils was witnessed, and carbon, linseed, turpentine, and whale wore; quoted firm. Lard oil was steady at. tho decline 1 recently noted.

Had the supply embraced fewer good to choice steers of from 1,250 to 1,460 lbs'average, and a larger amount of butch ers’stuff, and fat pony stcera of from 1,050 to 1,160 lbs average, tho dally orrivals would not have proved oppressive, and prices would no doubt have been fairly sustained all around. Hut the receipts of fat steers of heavy weight have steadily exceeded the wants of shippers, and they have hccu enabled to All their orders at materially lower rates, the decline reaching 160250 per 100 lbs. Tho offerings of good to choice cows and light fleshy steers, such ns our city butchers seek, have fallen con siderably short of tho demand, and not only hare last week’s prices been flnnly maintained, but for tho mors desirable lota there wore ready buyers at a substantial advance. Tho present scarcity of this description of stock Is not likely to prove more than temporary, and drovera will promote their own interests by exorcising considerable caution In handling such. In stock steers only a limited amount of trading has been done, the supply proving extremely light. Prices ore nominal at $4.0004.00 for common to good grades. Now milch cows oro In fair request and In moderate supply at unchanged prices, sales making at $25.00030.00 for common, and at $33.00(345.00 for fair to choice. Veal calves are plenty, and sell slowly, at a range of $3,000 6 23, as to quality. There has been an increased num ber of Texas cattle on sale without sensibly affecting values, good to choice corn-fed commanding $4.75© 6.40, while poorer lota have sold at $4.0004.50. To-day trading was active, shippers taking hold with more than usual freedom. Tho effect was to sensibly stiffen prices, though tho Increased firmness did not amount to o positive advance. Tho fresh receipts wore light, and they, as well as most of tho stale cattle left over from yesterday, were disposed of. Sales were reported at $3.76®5.W for inferior to extra; with the hulk at $5.00®5.C3. Tho market closed steady and firm, with fair prospects for the ensuing week.

The receipts have boon considerably larger than had generally been anllclpotod, the fact that the farmers are now busy with their planting leading to (ho belief that the receipts would bo ma terially diminished.' Monday's and Tuesday’s arrivals trcrc somewhat below the average- of tho past few weeks,' and tho market opened active and firmer in consequence, hut under the heavy receipts of the suc ceeding' two days there woa a sharp re action, - prices receding to $4,5004.85. at which range Thursday’s market closed dull and heavy with a downward look. A. faliingoff of nearly 4,000 In Friday’s receipts, however, changed tho com plexion of tho market, and prices have worked back to about tho closing quotations of last week, or to $4.C00 4.75 for common to medium, and $4.8004.05 for good to really choice. Common, coarso, uneven, and mixed lots—now that fair to good grades are becoming more plenty—are much neglected, and can scarcely bo sold at any fair price. To-day-trading was satisfactorily active, and tbo feeling was Armor. Now York, Boston.
