NEW YORK HERALD. \rw Vol k, Moi??l*y, April 'iS, Isl'i. Wnror I'iuct Willi Kn^laml ( fii ? i)0, ui. r excitement ou the Oregon question, unit til.' r-hti. j il the United States with Oreat Britain -This tub}* ct is the great engrossing topic in a I <. ut let, and the new?pajK*n? ol all j'ariies ar< i.i '.ma it .i;> all over the couutry The JVashington iilubt, which in to l?e regarded a J the organ of the ; ivernment, and the minor inoiith-iueces through out all the ldMihcations of the administration I iriy, are B|\ akuig out in the ino3t vehement and irhesitatiug manner. One tone appears to cliarac t' tix- the democratic press, and all declare at once ti:" ncci^j.ty, mi theirfirm determination, of sup i irting the President in the position which he ha6 as;u ::ed. All insist thut Oregon is to be taken pos prsHion of at every hazard. The only expression of dissent from the over whelming popular feeling on this subject, comes troni the organs of the commercial and stock-job hing interests in (he large cities,such as the Courier and E*</uirtr, the J urnal of Commerce, and Balti mux American.'. And nothing, perhaps, could more strikingly demonstrate the mere sectional charac ter, and contracted mental capacity of these agents ot diquet, than their articles on the present relations of ihe two countries, and the probable course ol ev?. ut? which awaits development in;the brighten ing future. They affect to deny that there is any thing at all threatening in the present aspect of na tional aflaiis?fissure stoutly insist on it, that cotton, tobacco, and slocks, must forever control the desiiny of tho republic? that a war is irnpo. Bi ble, aad denounce, with an air of virtuous indigua i o i, ail who venture to express the opinion, that to a people experinccd in the use ot democratic liberty, and rapidly attaining the most command i!position among the nations ot the earth, may possibly be committed the work of engaging in the last decisive conflict with the monarchical and des potic dynasties of the ancient world. The Courier Enquirer, however, exhibits a strange mixture of conflicting opinion... It takes all sides of the ques tion It denounces the war feeling, and yet its voice" also, is for war. It abuses Mr. Polk for as suming our unquestionable right to Oregon, and yet calls on the administration to maintain every inch ol its ground. The Courier, it is evident, does not know its own mind on the matter, and its rea ders are, of course, in a state ot equal perplexity. It is consolatory, however, to rcflsct that this state of dubiety is not likely to lead, iu the meantime, to aity very serious disaster. Whilst, therefore, the mere organs of commer cial and stock-jobbing cliques arc ridiculing the idea ot any interruption of the peaceful relations between the two countries, we will take the liberty of rchoing the popular cry. What is to be done T? What should the government of this country do i ft is very evident that Great Britain is in earnest in her announcement of uncompromising hostility lo our claims to the Oregon territory. She assures us that she is prepared to maintain her pretensions at every hazard. She is certainly at this moment in a very excellent condition for enforcing her claims and carrying her threats into execution.? She has settled her difficulties in the East. She has satisfactorily arranged the Chinese affair. She hits at present no particular business in the way ol war on hand. Her financial condition is prosper ous in the highest degree. She was never, in fact, more powerful, more unembarrassed, more able to effect her purposes than now. It is surely, then, incumbent on our government to make some pre paration for meeting this formidable enemy. The whole country should be put into a state of defence at once. Th? President should immediately sum mon an extra session of Congress. The navy and army should be increased. The militia should be re-organized, and put in such a condition as (o pre nent a m^re reliable means of support than an armed mob. The defences of the country should be made warihy of the name. All the recent im provements in naval warfare should be introduced. A steam navy should be erected at once, which could be used in connection with commerce, and be always in readiness (or actual service. Com rnunicaiinn neiween tuc great cities along the coast and in the interior, should be established by means I of the magnetic telegraph. This is the wuy to ne gotiate. We do not wish a war. We deprecate war. It would be a great calamity. But we do not wish to see the country humiliated We de sire to see the country in a proper posture of de fence, fully prepared with the means of negotiating with honor and success. It is most necessary that I his country be fully impressed with the importance of the subject-mat ter of the present controversy with'Eogland. It is a quarrel for the right of ttay through the great territory of the Oregon to Chipa and the East. Kngiand wishes to seize upon that, and so main tain her chain of communication around the globe. It is uot a contest for the possession of a barren territory. It is the same movement on the part of Kngiand,'but on a far larger scale, which sought to secure her claims in the North Eastern Boundary question. She desired to possess a certain portion of the North East territory bordering on Lower Canada and New Brunswick, in order to obtain the right of way between the two colonies. Now she seeks to obtain the right of way between her Canadian possesions and China, securing the means ot obtaining swift intelligence from the Eaat, in connection with the North-Weatern trade. This is the magnificent prize for which England now con. tends. There is only one course left to the administra tion. They must maintain their position. They can do that oaly with arms in their hands. We, therefore, call on President Polk to convene with out delay an extra session of Congress,for the pur pose of perfecting the means of national defence, and enabling the government of this republic to maintain itself with dignity, honor, and success. Increase of Travej. to Europe?In no one year has the prospects of travelling to Europe opened so favorably an in the present. The steamer Great Western, packets Liverpool, Siddons, Argo, Silvie de (rrasse, See., have sailed within the laBt four weeks crowded to the utmost with cabin pas sengers. All the packets to sail in May, the splen did Yorkshire, the magnificent Queen of the West, the fiae Stephen Whitney, and popular Sheridan, are rapidly filling np. The Stephen Whitney, we believe, is full; the Sheridan nearly bo; and the swift Yorkshire, to sail on the 16ih, and the stately Queen, to leave on the 21st proximo, have more tliau half their berths engaged. Americans will, this year, spread over Europe m great numbers. Movements of the New Corporation.?The democratic members of the new Corporation had another informal meeting the other evening, and a number of candidates for office were selected, to be presented to the board their taking their jcau. The following were the names mentioned on the occasion : ? Kdward Fitzgerald, Ballast Master. Kdward Flannugan, J.tto, W?i N. Uurkhtiad, Clerk to Superintendent of Streets. W. HincUir, 1st clerk street Commissioner. J. M. Hfury, ditto ditto. <i. Walter*, Deputy Keeper Blackwelli Inland li. Nash, ditto 8. T, Meek arm, Clerk id the office oi the Clerk of Com mon Council. A. H. Joliie, Inspector Weights and Measures 3. M. Bard, ditto ditto. The Swallow Accident.?The aelect commit to- on the Swallow disaster, made a report in the Sei.ate, on Saturday, concluding by introducing a nil for the better security of persons earned on "camboats navigating the Hudson Iliver, which read t.vice ,md referred. The report exone ated every one but the pilot. It is to be hoped nat the recent disasters on the Hudson, as well as tnat to the Swallow, will stimulate the Legislature H pins wmp strict laws. hp ^ iRnrxiA IJnivsMiTf Tr?ubt.cs have ali been settled HlULY Important Developments Relative to hie Late Cii Tkeatv ?We give in this day'* paper some very interesting developments relative ?o the n< gociation of the late treaty with China. The correspondence is sufficiently explicit, and presents ihe| prominent actors in that business in the true liglit. It is quite evident that to Commo dore Kearney belongs the credit and honor ol taking the preliminary steps, and, in lact, conduct ing to a successful issup, the Chinese negotiations Great injustice was, indeed, done to the gallant Commodore, by the ignorance, prejudice and ob tuaeuess of the lite President and Secretary of the Navy, and by whom his merits and labors were kept hidden 111 the files of the Navy Department.? But we have been enabled to bring them forth,and and to show that not to a politician or statesman ol the day, but to a gallant officer of the American navy, this country is really indebted for the success (f the Chinese negotiations. We do not mean to detract at all from the merit cf Mr. Webster or Mr. Cushing in the part they have respectively taken in this business. Mr. Cushing has shown himself to be a man of great tact and discernment, and a good deal of talent. He conducted his share of the negotiation with a great deal of skill and diplomacy, but both he and Mr. Webster have done great injustice to Commodore Kearney, in this matter, by attempting to claim all the honor of completing the treaty with China.? It will be seen from the correspondence, which we publish to-day, that all the principal points of that treaty and the dispo tion of mind neoessary to bring the Chinese to make it, were i fleeted by the exertions of Com modore Kearney?by his good sense and directness of purpose, and the vessvlawhich he commanded, it is indeed quite unworthy cf the fame and repu tation of Mr. Webster and Mr. Caleb Cushing t' they should attempt to monopolise the great merit which rightfully belongs to Commodore Kearney. We have also obtained a facsimile of one of the documents in the Chinese characters, which was received by the Commodore in the course of his negotiations, and which we will have had engraved for the Wetk'y Herald of next Saturday, to accom pany this important correspondence. The Nkw Corporation?Local Improvements. ?The new Corporation are now on the eve of as suming the heavy responsibi'ity that devolves upon the City Government. With the solemn warning before their eyes, in the fate of the so called " na tive" party, it is to be hoped that as soon as they shall have fully completed the machinery of the government and distributed the spoils of office, they will at once set their hands to work and give the people of this large metropolis of the Union, some practical evidence of their sincerity to reform some few of the many eryirg abuses that have 60 long existed in this city. The partisanship and discreditable system of ofTice-beggiug, that have hitherto operated so as to prevent the practical carrying out of those mea sures of reform they have (all the parties,) pro fessed to introduce, will no longer be tolerated by the great bulk of our community. The public mind has latterly become more enlightened on the subject of the governmental discipline practised by our city fathers in the Corporatien. The system of jobbing, with a view te bestow patronage on some partisan favorite, has been so abused, that the people have turned from it with disgust. The party now in power, in order to maintain the strong foothold they have taken, must make a bold, a vigorous effort, to improve the public thoroughf ares of the city. No narrow, stingy mea sure of reform will go down with the people. We could instance so many quarters of the city that require improvement, so as to be able to swell the catalogue to a large amount. Look to Broadway The disgraceful condition of this vast thoroughfare has been so repeatedly commen ted upon by us, during the reign of the dishonest imbeciles, who have been so universally drummed, out of office, that we approach the subject again with somewhat of reluctance. The project of paving Broadway with blocked granite, is one that will greatly tend to improve itn present almost dilapidated condition. It should be pressed, vigorously and strenuously, from the very outset, by the new Corporation. There is no part of our city that more requires the immediate attention of the authorities tsan this very Broad way. Independent of the wretched condition in which it is placed, there are many other abuses existing in this vicinity, that should be remedied with promptness and energy. The omnibus sys tem should be thoroughly reformed. The racing carried on, to the danger oi life and limb, is only surpassed by the impudence with whioh these dri vers, not satisfied with having the privilege of dropping passengers on the cross-ways, but they invariably take up the whole space by their horses and vehicles, so as to impede the progress of the foot passengers across the streets. It is also in contemplation to open, in continuation from Cana' street, a passage to the Bowery, and to improve the public sewers, so as to make them connect, by the formation of a large reservoir, to run from the latter place, and join the one in Canal street. The opening of such a street, on a magnificent scale, ouch as Bowery and Broadway, connecting these two of our finest streets, and the formation of a large public sewer, direct to Canal street from Bowery, opens such a field for public improve ment, that we cannot too strongly recommend it. I The condition of the branch streets that intersect in this line from Canal street, direct to Bowery, ] admit of considerable improvement; and, viewed in every aspect, such a project would greatly beau tify and improve the localities wc refer to. op the Express Links ?We are so fre quently indebted to the express lines, centering in this city, that we feel constrained to notice them ?their enterprise?and their value to the commu nity. There are three lines, which, centering here, di verge to all points of the Union. The first is AdiflA and Co, the Great Eastern, Southern, and South western forwarders. They now run through to Portlandjat the Hast, New Orleans at the South, and St. Louis at the West. They have one or two hundred men in their employ, who work on an average twelve hours a day, and are remarkable for their energy and enterprise. They take par cels in this city and deliver them safely, in at least a hundred different cities on their route. In addi tion to this, they have an English and French line, through which they forward to all parts of Europe, by every steamer and sailing packet from New York, Boston and Philadelphia. Indeed, their name and business is spread over the whole world. The second is Livingston and Wells, the Great Northern and North-Western line. This concern has been on the route for several years. They have one of the best arranged houses in this city, for the business in which they are engaged. They run to Albany, Buffalo, Montreal, to all the inter mediate towns and cities, and to almost every point on the Great Lakes. They are also engaged m a Foreign Agcney, in which they transact a large business They are indomitable in their enterprise, and are everywhere favorably known. The third line in (fay's. This has just started into existence. Thus far it has warmed by the public patronage, and as it is conducted with skill and prudence, it may shortly incn aae into an exten sive forwarding establishment. Mr. Gay runs to and from Boston, and carries email parcels. These three lines are of great value to not only the mercantile classes, but the whole community. The cheap postage system has been brought about by them and the independent press of the country, and they will, therefor^, continue to receive the support of the public. No set of men have ever di"played more spirit and enterprise than the man ger* of this line. They have become a marked feature of America Libels and L'ril 8ftii,SW? tec it stated in jome of the papers, that tomr p.r?on by the uaiue of "Hum" has been prosecuting the proprietor ol the Niw York Herald tor an alleged libe', contained in a police report published ! tst euinmir, in whieh his name was mentioned in connection with some facta transpiring at the Police Office. It appear* that el' er a great deal of expenditure and the em ployment of a prodigious arrny of counsel, inciu ding A L Jordan, Eiq , and Ex-Mayor Morris, (Muiticuu'is Motrib) ai.d some other lawyers, he procured a nrdict of fifty dollars damages against the Herald Oa inquiring into the facts of the case, we have loum', from our police reporter and lawyer, what they redly are, forthe truth is,that for months alter the suit was commenced we never knew what these facta were, or who Mr. Hunt was, or what he had to do in the Corporation. It appears, then, that our reporter in giving a statement of the pro ceedings at the Police Office, coupled with the name of this Hunt the epithet of "informer," he hav ing given information to the municipal authorities against certain hotel keepers who had, it >vas al leged, contravened the ordinances of the Corpora tion, in selling spirituous liquors on Sundays, or in some other way. The whole gist of the libel was contained in this 4word, "informer," and on this point the judge (Ulshoeffer) charged the jury, that if they considered the word applied in an improper sense they must fiad a verdict lor the plaintiff. Ou examining this case?the judge's charge to the jury, and several other important points?we are perfectly satisfied that the opinion.of the Judge, and the verdiet of the jury, cannot be sustained in law. It is a miserable and contemptible muter, for fifty dollars, to carry up a case of this kind to the Supreme Court ; but we mean t3 do so, and if need be to bring it btfote the Court of Errorr. We have adopted this course because it is necessary, as a sort of defencu against these petty suits, to ascertain precisely what the law is, according to the decisions of the highest legal tribunal of the. State, in relation to police re ports, and the mode of expressing them, as now car ried on by the newspapers. Towards Hunt, the person who has sued us, or any ether party occu pying a similar position, we can have no feeling, either one way or the other. The only recollec tion that we have of Hunf,:s his calling at our office long after the publication in question, nnd making some complaint about it. We replied?" Make out a statement of your grievance as you under stand it, and we will publish it with the greatest pleasure in the world." Mr. Hunt, it seems, was not satisfied with that assurance, but commenccd a suit, and we are informed that there are eight or ten, perhaps fifteen or sixteen, similar Buits about to be brought for police reports, against the proprie tors of the other newspapers in thiB city, provided the case against the Herald succeeds. Now' here is the point on which we are prepared to contest the matter. Having directed our coun sel to investigate the whole affair, we have every belief that the charge of Judge Ulshoefler is not sound in law, and that the verdict, ot course, must fall to the ground. Though we mean thus to rro secute this casejyet, if Mr. Hunt had wanted $50 or $100, as a matter of charity, as would indeed appeal to be the case from the pathetic appeal i>f his lawver, ex-Mayor Morris,(Multicau'it Morri;,) we would have cheerfully contributed that sum to aid a fellow-being in distress. Bat while we are ready to give for charity, we will not b? inti midated by law or lawyers. We do not believe that the decision in the case can be sustained, auti we mean to test it before the Supreme Court, and, if necessary, the Court of Error*. Important Naval Movement ?The fleet or the Gulf of Mexico has probably bailed from Norfolk. We learn from the Norfolk Herald of the 25th inat. that Com. Stockton artived (here that morning from Washington, and that the tquadron was to leave early the next morning with sealed orders. Annexed is a list of thr officers of the Princeton: Commedore R. F.

African Sqvadron.?The frigate Macedonian, the flag ship of the African Squadron, arrived yes terday, by the way of St. Thomas. She is under the command of Com. M. C. Perry. Vjroinia Election.?It is very likely, judging from the returns already received, that the demo crats have secured a majority in the recent elec tion. It is pretty certain that the following mem bers of Congress have been eleeted Dis. 1?Archibald Atkinson,.. .democratic. O-John A. Seddon, democratic. 7?T. N. Bayley,' democratic. 8?R. M. T.

Hunter in place of Willoughby Newton. | Apfair8 in Hayti.?The Eliza Leland, Ciplain Pendleton, arrived yesterday from St. Domingo. She sailed thence on the 3d inst. There had been a great excitement at that pljice in consequence of the discovery of a conspiracy to subvert the existing government. It was increased by the arrests of several persons concerned in it.? After the execution, however, of four of the con spirators, order was restored. This wae probably a part cf Herrard's party. We have yet to hear how that chief has succeeded in his attempt to revolutionize the island. Late from the Capr op Good IIopr ? We. have received the Cape Town Gazette, of the 21st oi Feb. It contains nc news except relative to guano. Of that article it gives the following intelligence i? We announce that in order to facilitate the commercial transactions connected with the obtaining of guar,o licen ces lor Malagas Island, (SaMenha Bay,) and Patei noster Island, (St. Helena Bay,) for the numerous ships st pre sent arriving from iehaboa in ballast, the government have acceded to such arrnngements with the meroharta as will enable them to give every facility to the despatch of vessels intended to load this valuable articli. It will bo observed that permission is gives to irad guano either at Malagas Island, (8-ildcnha Bay.) or Pater noster leland, (St. Helena Bey,) at the option of th? mar 'era of the vessels, and although there are great na oral facilitiea for loading at Taternoa'.er Island, yet the inate li ils for a stage have bean shipped Cjt that place, and an officer from Her Majesty's customs likewise pivccedste Paternoster Island. We have received letters from Salde..h<i Bay up to the Itith icat., from which the following are ?xirac.s s? "Everything is getting en very well on MsiaijiS !? land; some of the Csptains are quite dn ghted with the guano.

He may make terms with T*ftlio?i,or some othergreat a.ur, t uher in ?ugiuud or France The success ol the Park theatre, daring tiie I. -i lew mouths, par ticularly during ihe last engagement of Mr- Ander son, has been immense. The entire teason^ has been t xceedingly irofit b!c?the best lor many year?. The Seguins commence their engagement to nigh', and no doubt the ?'Bohemian Oirl" will draw mill better uudier.ces than when it was lirot produced,the Italian Opera being then a formidable competitor. All the fashiouable world, indeed, may now be expected at ihe Park, for music is all the rage in this city. The destruction oi the Bowery theatre will hardly nuke a void in theatrical amusements in that re gion of ihe city. We learn that the " Bowery Am phitheatre" is to be converted into the "Bowery Theatre," and gives its first dramatic entertain ment on Monday, May 5th. Tryon is manager, and its location is capital for the succession. The priced and process will be the same as Ihat of the old burnt-up Bowery, and Tryon will no doubt take the tide at the (hod. It is said, too, that Hamblin, who has lost all the earnings of the last seven years, has not lost his Epirit, eBergy or perseverance?he is already preparing to build a new theatre opposite the Hospital, in Broadway, and a superb location it is. But, in the meantime, what are lie and the many thrown out of employment to dol With regard to Hamblin himself, we have had some passes with him in former years, but we are now willing to forget the past. With the recent sad calamity on his shoulders, the poor man is indeed to be pitied; and therefore we say let by gones be by-gones, and are willing to lend him any aid in our power. He has been punished severely enough by un overruling destiny for any errors he may have committed, and he really possesses a good deal of indomitable courage and many pretty fair traits of character. Adversity will doubtless make him like others who are subjected to its discipline, a wiser and a better man. What can we do for him t It is xuid that Hamblin is tryiag to get hold ol Pdlmo'd. But there will be a good deal of difficulty iu this. Dioncford, who has been rather nnfortu nnte there, now hopes to retrieve his losses; and Djmbleford has also, it appears, taken the theatre lrotn Palmo, as one of the original proprietors, so that the two D.'s are now hard at work trying to diddle each other out oi the theatre. As both are pretty good fdlows, both Dinneford and Dumble tord, we shall take care to report progress, and let the public know, as soon as possible, who is to have Pilmo'd theatre. The fight, however, will be ter rible and vastly amusing, la the midst of this war between the two D who knows but Hamblin may step into it for a season 1 Thus we go in the atricals? bxrn, burn, burn?fight, figkt, fight? s ruggle, struggle, struggle. movement* of Traveller*.

Outrageous Attsmpt at Murder.?It has sel dom been our lot to record a more fiendish at tempt to commit murder than the following On Thur? day night last, at a late hour, a gentleman pamirg down St Francis street, observed a woman with a bundle iu her hand stealing into the yard of a respectable family living above Cedar street, and suspecting from her ap pearanoe that she was on some errand of mischief, watch ed her attentively. She was seen to approach the wall and throw the bundle into it, which fell with a heavy sound. When she retired, the gentleman immediately awakened the family, and informed them of what had Cised, stating at the same time hiit opinion that poison d been thrown into the water. His timely and friendly notice waa heeded, and all communication with the weil being stopped, yesterday mornlDg searoh was made, and a brickbat iound, to which waa attached a package ol arsenic, evidently thrown in for the malicious and nend ish purpose of poisoning some of the inmates of the house. The female, who was seen by the only witness of the transaction, ia an abandoned woman, by the name ot Elizi Davis, but who, when in Cincinnati, went by tha name of Ellen K. Thompson.

There h?ve been several movements within the past week which it wu supposed weald effect the stook merket v?ry utif?or?l)ly ; but they have passed away, and prices doled yesterday several percent higher than hare been current within the put two or three weeks It waa anti cipated, ou the receipt of the newa hy the Caledonia, that stock* wculd reoeive a severe blow, on account of the warlike tone of the British ministry in rotation to Oregon. Theae anticipations were, in a measure, real ized, and quotations fell off within the next twenty-four hours several per cent; but prioes soon rallied, and a decided improvement followed. The departure ef the Groat Western was another cauia of a temporary da. c'.ine. The advices par the Caledonia were received in the markets of this city on tha 33d instant, and tha Great Western left on the 24th, so soon after tha Caledonia's arrival that the markets had hardly time to recsvar from the first shock of tha news received. Whenever the bears of Wall street are in the ascendancy, and have the control of the stook market, they make it a point to de' press the market en packet-day, for the purpose ef affect ing the markets abroad, whioh, in turn, operates.on our local markets, and gives those bearing down prices a two-fold power in carrying out their object The stock market is in a very peculiar position. A few weeks since, any trifling rumor, predicting a rupture with Mexico, would depress stocks and cause a deoline in prices of one or two per cent Even an exeitiug debate in Congress would create a flurry among stock operators, endangering prices, and requiring several days to regulate and quiet down. An anticipated difficulty with Brazil created a panic in the stock market which required several days to allay, while our reoent ad vices Iron Great Britain, oi a more important and exciting nsture than has been received lor years before, had but a slight injurious effect upon the stock market,which wad immediately followed by an advance greater than has been realised for at least three or four weeks pre vious. We cau only attribute of thlsatate of things to the absence of other speculative movements in the markets, and a greater accumulation of capital in the street, to be employed in stoeks, either as permanent investments or speculations. There have re cently been attempts made to get up a corner in some of the staple article* of consumption in this counts y, such as beef, pork, sugar and ooff jo. Soma of these attempts have proved abortive, and alter a desperate effort, those engaged withdrew themselves from the movement, and the excitement rapidly subsided. The oapital that eager ly coujht employment in these things, hes return el to the sire# t, end for the want of a safer and more pro able investment, it must go into stocks. In this way wo cm only account for the rapid rise in stocks, in the fsce of accounts from England, which cannot at least be con sidered otherwise than belligerent, and indicative of much difficulty. There in another peculiar feature in tla s ock market. Any sorner that may be got up of any of the fancy stocks, does not have that influanoe upon others in the list, usual, whereas a decline in any slock, from any cause, is sure to fccsrry others down with it? This shows a very unsettled, fevarish state of prices, and is sufficient to convince those interested, that it is much safer to be involved in such as Norwich and Worcester, Long Island and other railroad stocks, that must eventu ally, no matter what the operations in the street msy be, become good investments, and come back again to a point ull as higb,if not higher,than ever yet realised. Specu la ions in faacy stocks, having no real value at present )r in the perspective, are generally very hazardous, and calculated to pretty effectively use up any inexperienced individual' who is desperate enough to go into them. We annex a table of comparative quotations for some o f ho principal stocks used for speculation in this msrket, for each day of the past week, also the closing prices for the week previous. There has been a slight improve ment in nearly every stook in the list. Quotations son thk raiPLirai. Brocxs m thb Maw V OR K MARKET. Sat.Hon. 'l'u'i L. Island 73 .Maliawk ?
