Montgomery street, and with It tho apecnlallng tommunlty of tho Pacific coast, which includes about tho whole population, are intensely agitated over the fluctuations of Consolidated Virginia and California, and tho predictions of tho bear interest that the Corn stock lode Is about exhausted. The view* of tuts clique ore summed up In the following statement by Jim Kcono, their leading operator, to a reporter of the ifi&u Francisco Chronicle: First, the mine has been falling for some time past, and the large amount of oro extracted within the last threo mouths has so Impoverished the oro body on the . {.Cud and 1,650-foot level that developments must be made below or tbo stock will certainly depreciate in value. Secondly, the ore body narrows rapidly from the 1,600 to the so-called 1,653-foot level, but which Is really only 40 feet below the 1,003-foot level. The Winzes sunk from the 1,660-foot level, both In Con solidated Virginia and California, don’t really warrant this estimate, as the oro body, after passing a certain point below the 1.650-foot level, shows Itself to bo of an Inferior quality. This was especially illustrated in running the crosscut from the bottom of the winze In tbo California Mine about 120 feel below the 1,660- foot level, where the body wae found to bo about 3S feet In width of low-grade ore. Another thing you must understand la tula: That In tbs line of Opblr, on tho 1.4115-foot level, which la of the same depth as tho 1,640-foot level of California will bo when opened, there la nothing; and, tn my opinion, this Is as deep as they will find pay ore in (he one mine California. Lastly, It has boon apparent to every close observer of the manipulations of this market that Flood baa been a persistent and steady seller of Cousolldated Vir ginia and California whenever an opportunity was af forded him without breaking the market. If Mr. Keene Is playing bluff, be does It boldly. He makes tho following offer: If I can bo allowed an expert of my own choosing, ny John A. Pauli, Hayno. Bowie, or Henry Jnulu, 1 will give to any benevolent association In this city my check for (10,000,—and I'll throw dice to eee which in stitution pockets the coin,—if I am allowed the privi lege 1 ask. If my expert makes a report which I deem favorable, I will agree to buy a million dollars’ worth of tbo stock, 0 On tho other hand, Ur, Flood avers on his word of honor that the bonanza mines are as good as ever.

COMJiniICUL CONFIDENCE LOST ABBOAD. The decline In British railway shares since the com* mcnccment of the year has also been very severe, and partly from the fact that the general public are weary of the Stock Excbahge, are alarmed at the rapidity of the fluctuations which take place almost week by vreek, and, owing to the diminished profits in trade, aro unable to purchase stocks freely, even If they sro considered to be cheap, there are no distinct indica tions of revival. A time will jtoseibly oome when an end to such a condition of affairs will bo reached, but there is no doubt that the existing policy of caution in nearly every department of btulneaa will be persisted In, and that any hope of a decided revival must be postponed until the autumn. The revelations of hie. both before the House of Commons’ Committee and in tho Bankruptcy Courts, and, I regret to add, before the Criminal Courts, have becu of too serious a nature to admit of merchants embarking freely in com mercial enterprise unless they are very certain of what they are about. Commercial confidence has unquestionably been lout, and, although we aro dolly hoping for its return, wo know that to regain it Isa diiHcult and alow process. Throughout the whole country, strict economies have been and continue to be practiced.—London Correspondence f-'manml C/ircni <U, no.sos. Dill. A>t«l.

Tho Dlrccton of tho Board of Trade have declared that under the rules of the Board each 1,000 bu of grain must be figured up separately, and accompanied (when delivered) by a separate memorandum for each tot. Wo understand that the difference of opinion be tween members of the Board turned on the point whether or no a separate "bill" should accompany each 6,w0 bu lot; and that point is still undecided. Our modem Mosos from the top of bis Monnt risgah taw a profit tn being long on wheat, but was not permitted to enjoy it. He had to “ lie down ” before reaching the promised land.. Freights were irregular. Lake do were dull and almost nominal at 4o for wheat and 9jfo for com'to Buffalo, and firm under a moderate Inquiry at 7c for com to Kingston. All-rail rates to Hew York were quoted at 3UO23XC per 100 Us, and to Philadelphia at 20c. Through engagements to Liverpool (railroad) were nominal at 48c per 100 lbs in specie, and do lo Glasgow were quoted at 45«7i50c. Lake and rail rales to New England points were quoted at JCe per bu. The leading produce markets wore again weak yes terday, there being a serious decline tu nearly every department, with great activity. And the cause* at work wera chiefly Western, tho decline noted from olh«r]>oiDta being little more than the echoes of our previous weakness. Ths general downward move ment was partially a consequence of continued fine weather, which promisee increased receipt* in th* near present, as well as good croji* in the farther off future. This brought out froe sellers, both on city and country account, and under tho pressure to sell price* recoded eu much that some operators feared tho drop, coming alter a recent siege of tho same sort, would occasion not a few failure*. Hence there was an extensive calling of margins, both in grain and provisions, and not a Uttio selling oat by parties who did not cars to put up more money, but only one failure of consequence was re port ad. That was lu wheat and oots; losses on the bug aide of the first making it necessary to declare off on trades in tho, latter, though thu oats deal stood nearly even. It Is worthy of remark that the looses by the decline la provisions have been chiefly boros by oulalds per • lies, each of whom only held a small number of bar rels or ticrcos. In grain the losses have fallen upon our home talent; but, a* they are leading capitalists, they are able to bear much heavier inflictions, eo that the duals are really strong, however th* markets them selves may be. There was a fairly satisfactory movement in do mestic dry goods. There was a numerous attendance of buyers, and, tn addition to their purchases, a lib eral aistrlbutlon was accomplished through the me dium ot *• mail erdore.” Groceries were active, with prices ruling steady and firm. The butler market re mains in an unsettled state. Buysrs aro, as faraa practicable, deferring purchases, lo expectation that lower prices will prevail by-and-by. Tho dullness of trade leads to a generous shading of prices, and we teduce our quotations l(£'ic all around, Cheese also is weak, with prices irregular. The dried-fruit trade couituuus active, and price* are fully maintained, both fur foreign end domestic varieties. Fish wen quoted unchanged, lu tho coal and wood markets no price changes were noted, but both of those markets were weak with e declining tendency. Leather was dull. Begging was lu demand at former quotations. The paint and oil business showed further improvement, end the quoted prlcus were generally well sustained. The yard trade in lumber continue* moderate. Brices have been reduced, owing to the larger offer ings of‘green iuml>er, and quotations for common green are now nearly down to those of lost summer, The offerings at the ducks were again liberal sod tho market less active but steady. The hardware mer chants report only e fair trade sad e steady market for ell staple trtlclcs. Wool, broom-corn, hops, end hides yus unchanged.
