Retmt tancoa from tho country are light, and there la n de mand, though not large, from tho country for loans. Receipts of stuff hero are small, and the opportunities restricted on tho Board of Trad# for tho employment of money In carrying produce. Tho main mercantile and miscellaneous demand for accommodation is based ou the failure of collections. There is some borrowing for summer packing. Tho surplus of the banks la not largo, but is ample for tho supply of tho few desir able outside borrowers who appear. Rates of discount sro 8010 per cent, with conces sions to good Independent borrowers. On (bo street, rates sro 7018 jxsr cent. The supply of funds Is largo and the doraapd small.

Considerable misappre hension prevails among tho country banks with regard to tho proper steps to take to gut silver, and wo repub lish for their benefit tho clrculais issued by tho Sccre vary of the Treasury, and by tho banks of this city. Tbe first circular below has been sent by tho leading banks of this city to their country correspondents : It is very apparent that for some time (o come the issue of silver coin by the United Slates Treasurer will bo entirely inadequate to meet tho immediate and al most universal demand. Wo are disposed to do nil wo can to furnish our correspondents silver coin, but our ability is dependent upou the regulations ami restric tions of tho United Stales Treasury Department. At present Uie Issuo of culu is limited to the exchange for fractional cvrrency. It is required that the fractional currency bo as sorted bv denominations and put up In packages of 300 each of whatever denomination. This require ment limits our supply of silver to the amount of fractional currency wo can control. It being further understood that tho Treasure'' exercises his discre tion in the amount ho will disburse to single parlies. Should you therefore desire any com, you will plcaso send us tho amount In fractional currency, properly rut In |iack»ges. marked with your name, and wo will forward tho coin to you as soon aa It can be obtained.

J.VACCCUATB a Ait FBANCIRCO JIINISO STOCK QUOTA- TIO.VfI. Numerous complaints have reached ns from time to time of tlio Inaccuracy of tho quotations of mining stocks supplied by telegraph from San Francisco. Tho mistakes were so many and serious that The Tbioukb omitted fur Bomo time to publish tho quotations. Tho following from tho Han Francisco LulUtin of April 10 explains tho probable origin of Ihoso errors; Tho San Francisco Stock Board has at last decided upon taking action and Instituting a reform In the manner that tho official business of tho Board has boon published by tholr Official lloporter, Franklin Lawton. Tho Innumerable errors and tho trouble* that arose from them havn been more than oven tho most pailont of brokers could stand; and, although Uuotudtlnio again those errors have been pointed out, no effort was mode by the Official Iteportor to provont a repe tition. Last Thursday a most gross amt palpable error was made, which led lo so many quarrels between brokers and clients that In thD'aftcruoou Board, at a prhato meeting, a resolution- was Introduced to abol ish the office of Officlallleportcr, and tho vote will bo taken upon It next Wednesday. At $5 per month for each list a profit of at least SOOO accrues to tho Official Importer, and this in surely n handsome salary for two hours a day. that lime being only required to attend properly to his duties. unntw op tue finances. Central shrinkage continues. Ttio few railway earn* tags reported tills week Urns far are satisfactory, but tlio delay In reporting, by some roads which bare usually been prompt, U not a good sign. Thera are reports of new wars between roads running south* weelwardly from Chicago and Bt.

In (be coal traffic, shipments continue larger than those of last year, and cotton re* cclpta are larger by 8 57,350 balca, but clearings continue less at nearly every city, and the decline at aomo points during recent weeks has been cpillo largo.

Tho bullion brokers aro bidding 1 to I.V premium for silver coin, having orders to till f«r considerable amounts for shipment to tho West Indies and South America. When this demand Is supplied they will not buy tho cola except at a discount In paper. Judging by ante Uihnn oiperienco they ozpoct that silver will bo offered at a discount after a while, and fur this among other reasons: A considerable portion of ths fractional currency la circulation posses Into tho hands of the receiver* of city railroad and ferry companies, and It is estimated that they take in about $3,000 per day.

CATTLE—The past week’s receipts, 27,032 head, were larger by nearly 1,000 bead than over previously reported. They were 3,? M wore than for the pre vious week, and 2,237 in excess of tbs number received during the corresponding week last year. In view of the overstocked and generally demoralized condition of the markets below, It is safe to say that one-half the number of beeves actually received would have amply supplied the legitimate trade requirements; therefore It will bo seen that holders were—so far, at least, as the arranging of prices was concerned—en tirely st the mercy of buyers. As a consequence a lower range of values was established. From the opening to the end of the week there was an Intensely dull market at a decline varying from 10s to 23e per 10(1 lbs. The number of buyers present was large, unusually so, but there was an on tiro absence of competition, and stock was allowed to accumulate in tbe ysrda until every available fool of ■pace was occupied. As regards the quality of the of ferings, it was equal to Iho best sent forward during the season, but wo And, nevertheless, that the bulk of the trading was dono st prices below sl.63—at $3.80..< 4.C0, Scalawags held at $2,5003.00, and extra grades at $3.8005.68. Thu bulk of tbo sales to tbo local trade were at $3.0003.73 (for cows, bulls, stags, oxen, and common mixed lots) and to feeders at $3,7801,00. Springers were alow of sale at $20.00040.00 per bead, with sales mostly at $48.00033.00, Prices aro from $1.8001.75 per 100 Bis lower than one year ago. Saturday a market was dull aud heavy. The supply was overwhelmingly in excess of the demand, and buyers had their own way as regards prices. Sates reached only a small percentage of the offerings, and the week closed on an extremely bard market. QUOTATIONS.

On Saturday then was a moderately active market, at Prices showing no quotable variation from those of Friday, sales tusking within tho range of the above quotation*. Few uroves sold above $7.90, and not many under $7.70, $7.7££7.86 taking tho bulk. SHEEP—Tho receipts, as will be seen by reference to the foregoing table, have beon moderate, but the state of trade at the East has been such that only a limited shipping denuud existed, and the supply proved excessive. It was a more or leu dragging trade from tho beginning to the close of the week, end prices showed great Irregularity. A few extra flocks were taken at $i7007.1!S for averages of over 100 lbs, but then were fsw transfers abova $1.22. We quote closing price! at $4,0&44.75 for common; $3.0440.30 for medium; and $5.60(40.26 for good to choice. TELEGRAPHIC MARKET REPORTS. FOREIGN MARKETS. SpteiAl VUixitcM |« TAa CAlcava fWoun«.
