6 FINANCE AND TRADE. The Loanable Funds of ■ the Banks In creasing. New York Exchange Firm— Yesterday’s Clearings .$3,300,000. The Produce markets Irreg ular—Provisions Less Active, and Easier. BrcadstnfTs in Hotter Demand, and Stronger—Freights Dull and Weak. FIN AN Cl ATj • The demand for good negotiable paper Increases it the banka 01 their surplus of loanable funds grows, but tho supply 1* not large. Tho country banks, m many cases, need a renewal of the ac commodations previously extended. Tho farmers ire so busy In their farm work that but little of their stuff is forwarded to market. In tills city Snnnccs are comparatively easy, although slow col lections and dull trade are complained of. The ippllcntlons from the Board of Trade sources for loans are light Business on the whole Is quiet and nonotonous. Hates of discount at the banks are BQIO per tent with concessions todcslrablo outside borrow* trs. On the street rates ore 7QIB per cent svtlh good paper In demand. New York exchange was Arm, and sold between banks ut 50®75c per SI,OOO premium. Tbs currency movement was light la all direc tions. Tho clearings were $5,000,000. TUB CITY NATIONAL DARK. Dissatisfaction has been expressed by come of (be depositors In the City National that no dividend has yet been paid (hem. When the bank closed its doors it had cash on hand, besides a Urge imonntof available bills receivable, and Ihoprci nit is the third week since the suspension. The olUccrs of the bank state that they arc busily en gaged In adjusting accounts, ascertaining balances, etc., etc., and have not yet accumulated enough funds to make an large a dividend as they wish to declare. The prospect for a reorganization of the bank has not apparently made much progress. The proposition has been made by some of the depositors U> taka an amount of new stock equal to the extent of their claim against the bank. A suillclcnt num ber havonot yet accepted this offer to assure Us iucccss. Thera Is some doubt ns to whether the liquidation of the affairs of the bank will continue in the hands of Its officers as at present, or whether % Receiver will bo appointed. SILVER. Apparently the order to the Sub-Treaxnric* to pay checks against the Government In silver, when that Is acceptable to the holder of the cheek, has not traveled any further (hnn New York. The New York papers state that, owing to the operation of Ihisordor in Now York, the premium charged by brokers for silver bus fallen to 1 per cent. The banks there can obtain oil the coin they need for the supply of their customers. In Chicago, the Suh- Treasury will not pay silver upon checks on the Government except to make out the fractional parts of a dollar, and state that they have received no or ders to do so. NEW ENCH.AND MANUPACTDUINO STOCKS. There is very great apathy throughout the mar ket. and scarcely a hopeful feature. Atlantic Mills, which went tip to 50 last week, is again off to 47. and dull at that. Bates Is creeping up. and has further advanced from d"M to (joy.

Lotion Journal of Commerce , May 1. I.OSINO CONFIDENCE IN MJNINO STOCKS. After the terrible mid unexpected set-back which mining stocks received yesterday, it was natural that confidence would bo weakened, and a rally was therefore hardly In order this morning.

The rinnllners of the Inspection Into atorc yester tiny, ns other daya, In not ultogcther duo to email dellvurlcH on the part of tbe farmers. It In a direct consequence of the fact that largo quantities of grain are dally hilled through Chicago and go around this city. A little while ago high rail-rates wore adduced as a mode of discriminating against Chicago. Kow low rate* arc used in the tmmu way. In their anxiety to obtain business tbe different railroad agents are reaching out U> the country tic* pot* and the farm, and raking In the grain to swell the volume of the trafllc over their respective roads. Now York rooms to bu making a desperate effort In this direction, and It is whispered that some of her merchants are willing to contribute to the railroads a portion of the profits tnado on handling the grain. Thera is perhaps no special objection to this, provided the mutter be not equal* Izcd In some other way, at the expense of the Weston: shipper. The communication which wo publish below points to some such compensatory arrangement oa being more than possible. A good deal has been said recently about the value of the New York grain Inspection. Whut appears to have been u fair test w as undo recently, but the result was far from satisfactory. A lot of HO car-loads of wheat was drawn off from tbe Central Elevator* two week# ago, and particularly exnmim-d as to uniformity of quality. It was believed to be n» nearly uniform as any such qnnn* tlty uf Wheat could bo. It arrived in New York last week uml wus theru Inspected Into lavo differ ent grades. A lot of yo car-loads of corn was drawn fromtliesaimulevatorsabout thosamo time, subjected to thu same examination, and pronounced to be uf tho sumo absolute value. On arrival In Now York It was divided by the Inspector there Into nut less than three dlffereut grade*. Tho ship pers of both these lota uf grain urn not slow to ox* press their disgust at the result , 41** 41 .stw mjjw OS dtlnt. “Alursand a-lock-a-day," Tho wheat kings who ruled In Milwaukee front Novemberlnto April tire said to Oder 10c on tho dollar down, Go at tbs end of six months, and 100 more at tho expiration of twelve laontbii. Bo mach for tho glory of the transaction. The wheat la understood to re vert to a prominent tlrm in New York. There must be something wrung In that quota tion of 30« per quarter on wheat from the East Indies, In England. Ordinary Calcutta wheat has been telling in London at 42s 6d, and the.latest re port received hero from Ueerbobm quotes a sale, April 27, ut 40s. TUu leading produce markets were moderately active yesterday, and t Armor lone was noticed in moat departments, notwithstanding the fact that the weather was floe, with a prospect of being moro settled. There was a good demand all round, though cbiuily for future delivery, The reported outward movement of breadstuff* was much larger than tiiu receipts, which Inspired oonlldouce ou the purl of holders, ruauy of whom are Inclined to think tiiat their property was worth mors money than It lias recently been quoted at. Trade was fair and nothing more. Tn prints tbero was a pretty free movement, tho attention of buyers being attracted by tho extreme low prices now prevalent, and in bleached and brown cuttous a good degree of activity was observable, but tu must other departments quietude prevailed. Gro ceries were reported fairly active, with prices of both staple and side goods ruling fairly firm. Teas were dull and easy. There was a good demand for domestic and foreign dried fruits, and most lines were tlrm. Raisins were firm and higher, layers advancing tu $2.1K)@3.00, and loose Muscatel to 13.1053.40.

The offerings at the dorks were small, and after the early hours very little was done, most of the buy era having dispersed. The yard dealers reporta rather quiet market.

To mo It Is a wonder that any sane man wilt consign a bushel of grain to that city until ho has made contracts for all the charges that are liable to bo placed upon bis properly. A few weeks slnco some entcrprlalngNow York Com missioner prevailed npon the New York Central Railroad Co give very low rates of freight from here and Buffalo to New York, to induce largo ship ments, At these low rates they used the argu ment, “If prices do nut suit you on orrlval we can get you lower rates of storage than can lie ob tained at ony other point.” on tho principle that it is belter to have half a loaf of bread than no bread at all. 1 should think Now York commission men would hcc to it that the elevator men and warehousemen, should nut bunko their Western correspondents.

Agoodiunnybuylagorders wore received from parties who expected that prices would recede In the sunshine, and these orders were so numerous ns to determine the course of the market upward. There was only a moderate Inquiry for shipment, the trading being chiefly for future delivery, but cash lots were relatively linn, most of the No. 2 now here being held against June or July sales, and tho current receipts were too small to make much difference In the market.

Tberols, however, butllttlo prospect of a change for the better until the war between tho Eastern trunk lines comes to an end. As tong u the rail roads take grain at from 16 to 20 cento per hundred from Chicago to New. York, vessels will have no show whatever, ns they cannot carry freight so low ns that.

These gentlemen ore prepared with batteries to blow the Saltillo decks off, when the cargo In her hold can be reached with little trouble by means of a diving-bell, as tho cur rent Is too strong to permit divers to de scend In armor. Tho same parties will engage In raising tho cargo of Iron ore onboard the sehr City of Buffalo, which sunk near Sand Beach har bor of refugo lust full, after which an effort will b« ninile to raise tho vessel If she Is not too much broken up.... Advices from Meaford nmlcrdatoof the 7th Inst, state: “Cnpt A. McKee, of the three-masted sehr Belle McKee, of Owen Sound arrived there this forenoon with the crew In a small boat. He reports that his vessel was caught tn an ice-shove about 1 o’clock this morning, 8 miles southwest of Colllngwood light-house, which stove In some of her planks forward, reclining her over on her beam ends aud currying away her masts and fore rigging. She then sank In CO fathoms of water, scarcely leaving time for the crew to take to the boats. They arrived hero almost frozen. She was owned by Mr. A. McKee.

Tho prospects for a fair shipment of oro from this port this season arc beginning to lookallttlo more favorable. The Milwaukee Iron Company and North Chicago Bolling Mill Company have ■ contract with tho owners of tho props Baldwla and Owen aud their barges to transport 100,000 tons of ore to these two Companies. The South Chicago Bolling Mill has three vessels under s season's contract to transport ore for them. The Cleveland Bolling Mill Company are unite court dent that limy will ship at least 30,000 tons by this route. Besides these, tho Bangor fumaco al St. Joseph, tho Lcland, too Frankfort, and Abe Green Bay and Dopero furnaces, will need a largo amount of Iron. The Inactivity among fur nace-men throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio, of course, will affect tho shipments during the early part of thu season, and wo can only hope lhal there may bo a revival of business In lust section in tho course of a few mouths. —iUcunaba Tribunt.
