12 hnaxge md trade. Quiet Day in Financial Circles—Dis- count Lines Decreasing. Country Orders for New York Ex change— Clearings, $3,300,000. The Produce Markets Gen erally Stronger, with Less Doing. && Important Advance in Wheat—The Trading Chiefly Speculative. FINANCIAL. There was nothing new or unusual in the trans actions of the day in financial circles. The rise in wheat added largely to the margins deposited with the banks, but their Board of Trade business in other respects was light. The amount of stall to be carried here is not large, bat, if the higher prices of produce arc maintained, will increase largely. The supply of commercial, manufacturing, and miscellaneous paper offered the banks is below tbeir ability to extend accommodations. The trade of the city is quiet, and little new paper is made in the regular course of business, bills receiva ble of the banks have diminished considerably since the first of the month, while deposits have grown. The loan market is overenpplied temporarily with f unds, and advances are readily obtained by dc eirable borrowers. Rates of discount nre S3lO per cent to regular customers, with concessions to first-class inde pendent borrowers. On the streets rates are 7@lß per cent, with an inadequate offering of good paper. New York exchange was offered at 50c premium for SI,OOO between banks. The-country orders for currency were a little heavier from the wheat districts. The clearings were $3,300,000. MIXTURE OF BANKING AND POLITICS. The Imperial Bank of Germany has omitted from the list of foreign Government securities on which it makes advances, those of the Austro- Hungarian Government, and the effect baa been to increase the depression shown in snch securi ties of late, which is not unnatural, looking at the extent of dealings on the German bourses in Aus trian and Hungarian securities. As a consequence, there has been a good deal of excitement in Vienna, where thcbewildennent is Increased by the difficulty of finding out the motives, totally unexplained, on which the Bank of Germany has acted. The fear of loss, it Is supposed, could hardly have operated, astheßankis, iu any case, restricted from making advances to the amount of more than 50 per cent of the value of such foreign securities, and of coarse it need not have advanced more than it thought quite safe at any time, so that it la difficult to imagine a good reason for absolute exclusion. Still, if the bank had been a private back, there would have been, necessarily, an end of the matter. Such a hank may decline any securi ties !t pleases, although intending borrowers may think it capricious,—a charge sometimes brought, wc may observe, against the Bank of England itself. But the Imperial Bank of Germany, as we explained last year, is inthestrictesteenica State Institution, absolutely controlled by the Imperial Chancellor, and it is on this account that the omis sion of Austro-Hungarian securities from the bank's list baa its significance. What is at first sight a mere banking regulation Is transmuted into a political act, and Prince Bismarck, It Is as sumed, must have had his reasons for treating Austro-Hungarian securities in this manner. Docs he foresee political complications which will greatly endanger such securities, or docs he wish, by dam aging Austro-Hungarian credit, to put a pressure upon the Government so as to make it couforzn to some policy favored by Germany, probably in the Eastern question ? wc are not disposed to think that there can be any such political reasons for the banking measure which Prince Bismarck is ccrtalnlv responsible for, though he may have had little to’do with it; but so long as the Foreign Min ister of a State manages its chief bank, the regula tions of the bank respecting loans on foreign se curities, if not on other subjects, especially when any abrupt change is made, must have a politi cal Interest. The States which are injured by the banking measure will be unable to make a distinc tion between the Foreign Minister as Minister and the same Minister us manager of the State Bank. — London Economift.

Railroad bonds were quiet and firm. State securities were doll. Tbe stock market presents hardly a feature for comment, having been dull all day, with its trans actions confined to the two or three specialties that have elicited the chief attention for more than a week. The exceptional points of interest are Delaware & Lackawanna, which advanced from 1062£ to 108V4, and Michigan Central, which ad vanced from 46ft to 48*4, reacting to 472£. The market closed with moderate firmness, but without important change. A considerable busi ness was done in Western Union on seller sixty days' options at Lake Shore was steadily upheld, and considerable strength was de veloped in St, Paul. The situation is devoid of interest. The transactions were about 100,000 shares, of which 8,000 were Pacific Mail, 27,000 Western Union, 8,000 St. Paul, 000 Erie,4o,ooo Lake Shore, and 11,000 Michigan Central.

For the four weeks ending April 27, 142 vessels laden with wheat passed the Dardanelles (some call them 1 * the darning-needles ”), of which only 28 were destined for British ports. This number is rather large, but the quantity of wheat thus moved is far from being so great ns many people suppose. Not a few of the vessels that carry wheat from the Black Sea are very small—not much larger than fishing smacks; and none of them are like the vessels which carry grain across the Atlantic from the United States. The leading produce markets were generally firmer yesterday,—there were a few exceptions to the rule,—and rather less active in the aggregate. The weather was fine, and more settled in appear ance, and there was little in the Western situation to give additional strength. The turning point seemed to be the news from Europe that Turkey was in trouble and the rumor that the war vessels of several European nations being in motion to ward the month of the Hellespont. It was remem bered that a similar movement began the Crimean war, nearly a quarter of a century ago, and feared that a general war will be the result now. Of course it was not expected that Turkey could moke a stand against the combined power of Enrope, but it was reasoned that the movement may result in a partition of that Empire, which very probably would not be accomplished without a protracted straggle between the victors. In any event, it was reasoned that higher prices may be looked for. A short struggle would involve a temporary stoppage of grain supplies from the Black Sea region, and a protracted contest would mean not only an increased consumption and much waste, but a decreased production. Hence there was a better demand for grain here, and at least the expectation of it on the seaboard and in the British markets. Eastern buyers are slower than those of the West, but holders there were not alow to perceive that the situation favored an advance much more with present low prices than on those of a few years ago. The feeling ex tended to provisions, but not so markedly, caprices of hog product are relatively so high as to materi ally diminish their consumption. Wheat and com are so low that an important decline is not possi ble, and they are comparatively safe to hold for a rise. The present crop prospects are not sufficient ly brilliant to induce heavy short selling, even if the world were at peace, while there is no donbt that with the first note of war onr visible supplies would be absorbed so rapidly as to make the recent talk of winter plethora stem like the visions of a dream. Sixty day. Slpht. ewf 513« .510?-* sia>i . 40 H 41 ..SIGH Sl3# Bid. Asked. ..142 ...145 Dry goods were quoted quiet. Orders were mostly for moderate quantities, and did not make a Tery large aggregate. In the grocery market there was considerable animation. Not many buyers were present, but the mails brought inn large nomJ>cr of orders, and a very satisfactory business was ac complished. Prices were steady, firm, and un changed. Bnttcr and cheese were dealt in rather sparingly, the prospect of lower prices a little far ther along in the season leading buyers to restrict their orders to supplying current needs. Dried fruits were ordered freely by tbe local and country trade, and both domestic and foreign descriptions showed firmness. The fish market was quoted quiet, with prices ranging as before. Coal and wood were dull and unchanged. There was no change in the leather, bagging, tea, paint, and oil markets. Tobacco was in better demand, and was more firmly held, the increased strength being due to reports from the South of damage to the plant. The lumber market was rather quiet. The offer- logs at the docks were email, and at the yards trade continues steady. Metals and nails were steady and In moderate request Bnildln? materi als were dull and generally lower. The wool market remains doll and weak. The Western manufacturers are ordering small lots to keep their mills in operation until the new season opens, otherwise there Is little inquiry, and sellers usu ally are inclined to make concessions rather than miss a sale. The inquiry for broom-corn, hides. and hay continues moderate. Seeds were dull and weak, except timothy, which was scarce and in few bands. The poultry market was firmer, the offer ings being insufficient to meet the wants of the city trade. Eggs were unchanged. Green fruits sold freely at former prices.. The advance in grain caused fonr failures, which were announced in the afternoon. None of them were for large amounts. They were chiciiy con cerned in wheat. Lake freights were doll and nominal at about 2i£c for com, and 3c for wheat, to Buffalo; some quoting them even lower. Hail rates were quoted at 30c to Now York, ISc to Philadelphia, 17ftc to Baltimore, and 25c to Boston, per 100 lbs, with some limits at cutting under those figures. Through rates to Liverpool were quoted ot GOc via Boston or Philadelphia, and 03c via New York, both in specie, per 100 lbs. received at Chicago yesterday: Louis C.

FLOUR— Was very quiet, and very strong. The further rise In wheat, the easier feeling la freights, and the fact of light stocks, made holders firmer In their views, and most of them were disposed to ask an advance, but shippers held off at the bore intimation of It, leaving the buying to be done by the local trade. Sales were reported of 405 brls winters at 55.50&C.00; 718 brls spring extras, chiefly at $5.0C&5.75; 100 brls low spring sapcriiacs at $2.87)6; and 100 bris rye flour at $1.25. Total, 1,323 brls.

Beak— Was In less demand, and a shade coaler In con sequence. Salts were reported of 40 tons at $10,502 , 11.00 on track, and $ll.OO free on board cars. Fern—Sales were 10 tons at $18.75 free on board care. Cook-Meal— Sales were 20 tons coarse at $17.50 on track. WHEAT—Was active and very Irregular, advanc ing yiic from the closing prices of the preceding after noon, and averaging fullv higher than on Wednes day The market was excited early by a telegram from New Turk to the effect that buyers there were taking all the wheat they ceuld find, the motive being a fear that the Dardanelles will be speedily closed by Turkish complications with the Christian Powers of Euroue. Subsequently the regular dispatch quoted wheat as held 225 c higher In New York, but with **ao business. M and the Liverpool advices were conflicting, some quot ing firmness mere and others aa easier feeling at the close. These contradictious caused some decided changes In tone here, hut the general feeling waa a very strong one, tne competition among buyers oelag often a sharp one. The purchasing was chiefly for tnture, the upturn of the market eoirying It above the ability of shippers to take No. 2 without risking too much on the possibilities of an advance while the properly is In transit. The lower grades were stronger under a good demand Ju proportion to the supply. The buying for future was largely oa local account, but a good many orders were received from the country and a few from operators la the East. The receipts continue small, only s 0 car-loads of the speculative grade being In spected into store yesterday, and the reported outgo, though not a large one, indicated a fnrtuer reduction lu stocks here at a rate which would leave very Utile to be delivered round on the sales made for next month's delivery.
