Tho Prodnoo Markets Generally Slaw— Provision, and Whisky Firmer, Grain Easy, but wt>eot Closed Strong. FINANCIAL The movement of currency to flic conntry that eras expected last week to follow the rise In wheat did not take plnco. Tlia fnrmera have ell been busy .with farm work, and prices have not gone high enough jet to'make U much of an object for them to haul their staff to the depots. Every feature of local business was monotonona to the Jaat degree. Tho banka wero disposed to complain of tbo scare!* ty of paper. Tbo prospects of dividends were not discussed with noticeable cheerfulness. One thing in tho ao* . tount of tho banka has shown develop ment, whllo tho clearings Indicate tho llmlnlshlng transactions of trade.and finance. (Vhtle paper shows scarce and profits lessen, tho taxes hold their own. Tho prlco of everything hut Government cheapens. In tbo ease of one bank, all ts earnings for a quarter wore spent In paying its taxes. Banka are beginning to ask themselves ■ whether tho national charter whlstto doesn't cost them all It Is worth, or more. Borne of them arc seriously discussing tbo profitableness of giving np. tbolr charters and continuing In business under tho Blato law, and others propose to nominally reduce tbolr capital to escape taxation. ■ The local loan market was dull. Hates of dis count to regular borrowers wero B®lo per cent Special rates are made to Independent outside bor rowers. Hates of discount aro B®lo per cent to regain matomers. Concessions aro made to desirable out lido borrowers. On the street rates wero 0018 per cent, with very few transactions.

Tlio Netherlands Minister of Finance has laid before tho Council of Stale a project of law pro viding for tho Introduction of the gold standard Into Holland. Hy nn enactment of tho last ses sion of tho Legislature, tlio coinage of new gold pieces was authorized, and tho suspension of sil ver coinage ordered. Between June and Dccefri her lost, the Utrecht Mint coined, under this four law, 41,000,000 florins of 10-florin gold-pieces, none of which appear to havu been yet Issued, In the meantime, very largo amounts of silver aro coming into Holland from its Eastern possessions, In consequence of tho ro-colnnge operations, which, added to tlio sliver already In circulation, makes It a.question of no small moment to tho Government what shall ho done with tho silver. If tlio gold coinage ho persisted In. If the establish ing of tlio gold standard bo steadily pushed to com pletion, Holland will aggmvato all the bad results already produced hy tho coinage operations of Germany, and a severe additional pressure will bo put on the silver market. profits op Canadian banking. Tho. annual statement of tho Bank of Jlontrcal for tho year ending the 30th of April has been pub lished. Tho profits for tho year, after deducting charges of management and making full pro vision for all bad and doubtful debts, are stated at 61,838,070. Of this amount $1,070,131 has been appropriated fur two dividends of 7 pur cent each, leaving a balance to be added to profit and loss account of $102,538, making It now $507,020, NEW GOLD DISCOVERIES IN AUSTRALIA, A now * * And ” has been reported in the Province of New South Wales, and, as usual under such circumstances, the Inhabitants In the vicinity ore reported to bo in a state of lively excitement.

The Xado* thus iumi up tho fiscal and commer cial movements of tho post week In Now York: Tho week was onu of tbo dullest of the year In Wall street. The decline in gold was arrested by the renewal, on a largo scale, of specie shipments' the total amount of these having beou $2,278,000’ of which $1,800,000 was gold coin. This coin is nut sent because the foreign markets require gold at present, but because there is nut a sufficient supply of other articles to send. The trade Jm ports are small, but securities continue to bo re turned to this country. During tbo month of April the foreign Imports at New York wore $£203,000 less than In April. 1875, and $10.000,- 000 less than la April, 1874. Thu exports of do mestic merchandise from New York, exclusive of specie, daring April, were $1,344,000 less than last year. Taking the ten months of the Decal year, from July 1 to April 80, the Imports at New York Were $41,823,000 less than In the corresponding lime the year before, and $55,000,000 loss than for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1874. Tbs exports, exclusive of specie, ul domestic merchan dise during the ten months ending April 30 Inst, were $2,840,000 less than In 1675, and $37,000, • KW less than in 1874. These figures show that, txcopt fur tho return to this country of lecuritlcs, there would be much less need Mian In previous years to export gold. The work of gutting sliver change In circulation {ocsonslowly. Less titan $5,000,000 have been ssued in tbo past mouth in the whole country, ami \ good share of this was not exchanged for frac ' tonal notes. At tho Bub-Treasury here tbo orders aero changed several times during tho week, and U last took u form which permits the issue of nut aorothui SIOO,OOO per day. Bmall change rules it a premium, and a comparatively largo amount of hirer has been bought at a premium of l.todper .tent to-be sent to California, where tho discount in silver is much less than here. The price of nil rer In London is about 53!id per ounce, making >ur silver tokens worth about BhUo to tho dollar, the value in gold of sloogreenbacks rouged during Jus week between SBO.OB nod $88.70.

Tbo leading produce markets were rather slow on Saturday, very little being done In several depart* monts, and not numb In*any. There wore no largo orders In hand, 'cither to buy or sell, and oar home talent woe not equal to .the task of active trading, os the day was warm, and the end of the week, which Is generally comparatively quiet. The shipping movement was dull. Grata was easier, and provisions firmer. There was no apparent change In the position of the dry‘goods market. Trade In moat departments was quiet, almost to dullness. Prints, summer dress fabrics, and notions wore dealt In with some freedom, but la other lines there was no appear* once of activity. Groceries were ordered on a gen erous scale, .and tb‘o market preserved the steady, firm tone which characterized It on tbo preceding days of tho week In the butter market there was a reasonable degree of activity, but prices were not sustained. Of late the supply has Increased quite rapidly, and, as there has been no corresponding Increase In tho demand, stocks have accumulated to an extent that has caused some uneasiness among holders, and the onxlety to realize has led to o steady "shading off" in prices, Saturday's trading was chiefly at prices below liCc though fur fancy yellow 27©28c was realized. Cheese also was weak and unset tled, with a tendency to lower figures. A light movement was witnessed at o®loc for poor to bent now.

It Is re ported Hint another rise In freights will soon take place. Ratos arc now 40c to Chicago. Tho prop Forest City and the schr 11. 11. lirown were char tered on that rate to-day. .A largo amount of coal awaits shipment, and tho prospect of n rise in freights is very good, tiovcral vessels tied up at Uulialo yesterday. TERMINAL. CHARGES. Tho vessel-owners at this port Intend to form into an Association, In a few days, for the purpose of taking some measures against the outrageously liigli terminal charges madu on grain by the eleva tors and railroads leading hero from the West. Tbo terminal charges at this point oro over Uc per 100 Sis, while at other points they oro less than Ic. The charge made by tbo railroads for switching the cars to the elevators should be entirely abolished. They charge nolhlngfortrans furring from one line to another, and yet they make a special charge for switching to the eleva tors, The causa of this is that the railroads are to some extent interested in the elevators, and tho two divide tho “perk.” Then the charge for trimming Is anotherunjnsttnx Imposed upon ship pure by the elevators, which should do this work for nothing, Besides these outrageous extra charges, tho elevating charge of Sc per bu Is mure than twice what la charged bv elevators at other points. Lost winter the railroads agreed to abolish the switching charge, provided the elevators would do tho same with the trimming charge and redneo tbo charge for elevating to Ic per tm. It was argued- that this amount would be ample re muneration, and that tho increase in business would mako np a portion of tbo loss. Uut tho ele vator men were nut willing to accede to tho reform by which their princely incomes would ho cut down, believing that they would get back tho busi ness anyhow so soon as navigation opened mid tho vessels commenced to force down tho high rales then charged by tho railroads. It did. however, not require tho opcnlngof navigation to force dawn tbo rates. The poolcu railroads quarreled, and tho result was a railroad war which brought lowa East bound freights to unprecedented low figures. Thu rate on grain, which was 45c per 100 tbs from Chicago to New York, Is now tiOc, and In a few instances has been less. To Ualtlrooru tbo rate now charged U but 174 c per 100 lbs, which Is about 100 a bushel. At such rates vessels have no Jhuw whatever, as they cannot carry grain ot so jw a figure. If. however, tho terminal charges would ho reduced So per bushel, the vessels could compote, though they would not make any money, and much of the grain which now goes around Chicago by roll would again eomo to this city and * go by lake, which bos always bcenthu more favorite route with shippers. Whether tho vessel-men will be mote successful in their efforts to bring about a reduction in these charges than tho commission merchants were last winter, remains to bo seen. It Is to be hoped that the present turn of affairs has opened the eyes of thu elevator men. and thattbey will be more willing to do the fair thing tholnUey have been heretofore. PORT IJUROrf NETVS. Special Correspondence of Tie Tribune, Port Huron, Slay 10. —On Friday, April 27, tho submarine telegraph cable at the Straits was broken, and part thereof woa carried off by tho vessel or steamer which dragged her anchors across it. Tho Western Union Telegraph Company mana gers ore now desirous of finding out just whore tho cable was dropped by tho vessel that picked it cp. Doubtless tho Captain of tho vessel or pro peller which broke it withholds Information through fear of prosecution. The only object, however, Is In recovering the cable or of obtaining information tflat would lead to its recov ery, oa It would coal a great deal moro to grapple for it without knowing where It la than If It were known just what locality it Is la. The cable Is worth about $1,500, and It would cost that to re place It. Any Information left at ahy of the West ern Union offices will be of great service to the Nicholson, of Cleveland, is on bis way t 6 Duncan City to look after the acbr Grenada, which lies sunk there alongside the dock.

Twenty steamers were lost, broken ifb. or pntout of service. Tho largest number of casualties reported was on Lakes Huron and Superior. TIIB STREET DISASTER. Tuesday night on Lake Erie was dark and windy, and CapL Doylo was on deck the greater part of the time watching tbo safety of tho craft committed to his .temporary charge. With the approach of morning weather accmcd to'bcltcr, and ho went below and to bed, as did also Mr. Hooper, tho ice and mate. Three of tho seamen wero in tho fore* castle, It being their watch below, and probably they wero asleep whon tho fatal blast struck (ho unfortunate bark. Tho Street was now abont 0 miles to tho eastward of Long Point. It was about 7 o'clock In tbo morning. The lint mate, with the men belonging to his watch, except the ono who was steering, wero engaged In tho custom*' anr morning work of washing down decks, when, as is stated, tho man at tho wheel cried out that a heavy squall was coming. Ho was not hoard, or at least no attention was paid to what he said, and ho again callodoaUhat a squall was coming, andthey hod bettor shorten sail. Whclh or the male, Mr. Itoacb, heard him or not cannot bo told, as fio Is among the lost. Tho sqnatl U represented to have been of terrific violence, al though it did not last moro than five minutes. It struck tho vessel with all Its fury, and tho Thomas 0. Street Instantly capsized, lying In Iho water keel uppermost. Dehig light, sbo did not sink.. Tho three men In tho forecastle hod no ommr tunlty for escape. Tho first mate, Charles Roach, of Saginaw, was also drowned, but 'of his death wo nave no particulars. Ho was (pi unmarried man. Tbo cook, John Walker, of Pori Dover, OnL, whom bis family reside, and James Gaffney. a sailor, of Cleveland, complete tbo delh roll of six. At tho first alarm the Captain and th« Second Mato sprang from their berths, and tbo lat ter succeeded in reaching tho deck before tho lee rail had gone under. Cnpt. Doylo found hlroscll Imprisoned In the up-turned cabin Into which tha water of course poured, "but be was so fortunate m to roach a window. Out of this he got and Into tha troubled lake, end managing to swim around ta tho stern ho seized hold of tho rudder strap. While iu this position two struggling men In turn seized him, and' their weight was such that he could with great difficulty retain his bold. Presently ono of them dropped off ami was drowned. 'Becoming very much exhausted, and fearing that ho could keep up but little longer. Cnpt. Doylo finally managed with ono band to gel out his knife, with which ho cut loose one of till suspenders, and with die, which happily chanced to ho strong, bo lashed his other am to tho chain. This was his position, and ono man still clinging to him, when assistance none too soon arrived. Tho tug 11. Q. Holton, of this port, CapL Thomas Mnybam, chanced to bo Id tho vicinity of tho dis aster, having gone from hero to tho neighbor hood of Long Point to assist two barces, tha Hnnnaford and Cash, which went ashore there last fall. 'Tho capsizing of tho Street was In full view from her deck, and CapL Msytbam lost not n mo ment's ttnio In harrying tho Holton td the wreck, at which he arrived In tlmo to save Cnpt. Doylo. tho sailor Howard, and Mr. Hooper. They wero all In 'condition of oxtromu exhaustion, ana, hut for tho providential arrival of tho tug, probably not ono of tho crow of tho bark would havo been eared. Lato in (ho day tho Vender hilt passed down, and tho survivors wero transferred to her, arriving yesterday morning as slated. From tho position In which ihc.Strcot was left it waa believed that sho could be righted and brought Into port without extreme difficulty. With that end in view an expedition loft our harbor last evening, consisting of the tugW. R. Crowell and schr ti. T. Atwater, provided with tbo necessary wrecking apparatus, and lit charge of CapL John lilce, Marine Inspector. The three survivors from tho Street wero included in tho party. CapL Phipps, tbo master and part owner, arrived In tills city from Canada lost evening, but not until tho expedition had deported.— Buffalo Courier, THE DETROIT RUIDOB. There Is yet an nncosy foollngomong vessel-own ers In this port concerning the outcome of tho De troit Hirerbridge eontrovorsoy. Notwithstanding the powerful array of arguments against that proj ect, tho railroad men are working patiently'and silently, wlth'moncy and Influence, and there Is n feeling of apprehension that sooner or later they wilt succeed In wringing from Congress permission to obstruct tho most Important channel of naviga tion In this country—except Sandy Hook Inlet— with a low drawbridge. Tho strong competition be tween tho cost-nnd-wcst railway lines compels tho Michigan Central and Canada Hoads to n»o efforts to complete their connection at Detroit, ami from tho actions of tho Mlcblgananombors of Con gress it is easy to bo seen that the defeat which tho bridge project has met in public opinion andtho newspapers has not discouraged thu railway men. No one pretends to claim that the bridge project con stand for a moment as a debatable proposition. Every substantial fact Is against It. it is forbidden by tho terms of tha boundary treaty with Great Britain: it would bp a serious and costly obstacle tu tho navigation of Detroit Itivcr; and, moreover. It Is unnecessary. No one doubts that it would bo pleas ant for the Michigan Central and Canada Hoads to have a low level bridge directly across from Wind sor to Detroit. Tho proposed bridge would cost, according to tbo engineer's estimates, $”,457,&00. To tunnel tho river at tho same point would cost $2,508,000. Three years ago tbo companies drove a small experimental tunnel through under tho river about half tho entire distance, but'gave It up because, as was stated, tho experiment had dem onstrated the Impossibility of making tbo tunnel. The difficulties encountered were sand pockets, boulders, and carburcttad hydrogen gas, precisely the soma that w,cru overcome with entire success In tho Cleveland and Chicago water-works tunnels. Tho soil, a stilt clay, was precisely the name as that found at Chicago and Cleveland. Tho aggregate length of tho Chicago and Cleveland tunnels IsU miles; tbo one at Detroit would be only 3,000 feet. There Is not; says tho Detroit AVim, a single feasible reason why tho railroads should not tunnel thu river at Detroit, and overcome all difficulties with out discommoding tho enormous marine traffic that throngs'that Important channel. Tho tunnel would Involve grades up and down from Its bottom to tho outside level at either end, and It would take eomo what longer to cut It than build a bridge. For these reasons the roads declare that tho tunnel cannot be built, and Insist upon tho bridge. They are demanding what never can bo granted.— CUt-v land Leader, A Students’ Frenk. Trou(.y. V.)
