NEW YORK HERALD Wow York, Monday, July 14, 1MT. 'Jhc Chicago Convention. Our readers will find in the HtralH of. this morning, the first day's proceedings oi the River Hnd Harbor Convention, held at Chicago, reported by our special correspondent, whom we despatched from this city. We invite their attention to the letters written by Cass, Clay, Wright, Van Buren, and henton, on the ques. " 1 ?AW?ynniMi( lltwl<?rfnL 1 ncr tion ot me gfnciai B the improvement of oar lakes, rivers, and harbors. We give them in full. Ocean Steam Navigation and (lie Magnetic Telegraphs. Steam communication between the old world and the new, is increasing at a rate truly astonishing. A year or two ago there wero but a few vessels in the trade, and now we have ail arrival und drparture every few d?ys; and, for the information of those who have not watched its progress, we will give a list of the arrivals and departures of the ocean steamers for one month. On (he fourth instant the Britannia left Liverpool for Boston ; on the tenth the American steamship Washington left Southampton for New York; this day, the twelfth, the French steamship Philadelphia will leave Cherbourg for the same plsc?: on the nineteenth the Hibernia will leave Liverpool for Boston; and on the twentieth, 'he new steamship Guadalquiver will leave Liverpool for New York.? The departures from this country will b* as follows, excluding the Cambria, which sailed on the first. The Caledonia will leave Boston on the Itfth; the Sarah Sands will leave New York about the 20th; the Union will leave here on the 21th; and the Britannia will leave Boston on the first of August. Steam navigation is as yet but in the bud, and when it shall be in full bloom, no one can over estimate the advantages that it will confer on the United States, and, in fact, on the whole world. Its effects, thus far, are sensibly felt in die promotion of commerce, and in furthering the ends of peace, by drawing distant nations into close proximity. V lew years since a voyage across the Atlantic was a slow, wearisome and protracted undertaking?but now, by means of steam, and our splendid packet ships, it is looked upon *a a pleasure excursion. We can now almost e'lukc hands with our transatlantic friends, separated from us by more than throe thousand nules, the same whom a few years ago we looked upon as strangers. A few years more, and the word "foreigner" will become obsolete. There will be, in no fact, 110 people foreign to another. The whole race of man, through the mighty inHtrumentality of Hteam and magnetism, will be drawn together into one family. When that time shall arrive, war will no longer be known; and cannon balls and mortars will be locked up in the Museums, as curiosities and remnants of a barbarous age. These two wonderful agents have only commenced the work which they are destined to accomplish. Let us reflect now what electricity has done, and what it is destined to accomplish. It is only within a very few years that our illustrious countryman, Professor Morse, discovered its adaptation to the purpose of communicating thought between the most distant place*; and at the present time diere are upwards of seven thousand miles o*telegraph in operation, and in course of construction, in the United States and Canada. Lines have recently been constructed extending ir?m roiumu, u the State of Maine, to Fredericksburg, in Virginia, and, tn a week or two, it will be in opera(ion as far as Richmond. At the West, there is a line in operation to Wheeling, and in i very short time it will extend to Cincinnati, in rhe State of Ohio. In the month of August there will be aline, completed between Mobile and Vew Orleans, a distance of one hundred and fifty miles. When that line shall have been completed, we will be within three or lour days of the latter city by means of the telegraph and our southern overland express, and will receive news from there fourdays in advance of the mail. A line between Portland and Halifax, is about to be constructed, and will be finished probably in another year, or less, by whicR the quotations of the foreign markets can be made known throughout the whole country in a few minutes after the arrival of the English Cunard steamships; and which will bring New York, Boston, and the extreme West and South within nine or ten days of England. Such are the wonders of the telegraph, and such the benefits whicfc it will confer on the United States. Were not the fact palpable and plain before us, we might think we were indulging in a dream. Our old men shake their heads, and know not what to make of this state of things. They rub their spectacles, and cannot realize that such wonderful events as those we have mentioned, and those which are about to happen, could have occurred or will occur in their lifetime; while our young men are alive to, and can appreciate it all. With magnetism on the land and steam on th< ocean, we have the fact before us that within t few years the world has made aprodigious strid< tn civilization and science. The earth, and th? heavens themselves.have bean made subservien to man's purposes; and if the United Statei he individually more benefitted by it, we have the proud consolation that it is to the in tenuity and intellect of her own sons that she ia indebted. The names of Fulton and Morse deserve to be remembered as long as the world retains its present shape. When it ceasef to be round, then??what ] VwTiNe Places nkar Nkw York.?There is, perhaps, no city in the world, certainly there 11 none in the United States, within |lhe immediate neighborhood of which there are ?o many Helmut and agreeable places, which our toilworn and overheated citizens can reach within n hour 01 two, than our own favorite and nobl? cit> Now York 13y faking the ferry boat they can reach Hoboken, which is one of the moil romantic places on the continent, in five minutec and in five or ten minutes more alter they ieach it, they can be as tar in the country as they need to be to obtain fresh nir, or witness the mowers carting th* ripe hay, or the harvesters reaping and cradling the matured cfops. What can be more apreeable to a dweller amid bricks and mortar, than to nee thi husbandman securing the truits 01 his toil, and himself and family, from the oldest to 'he youngr.t, engaged in their happy work; and after the business of the ilay is over, to listen to their innocent and sprightly conversation, and enjoy their substan tiai and frugal meal. We know of none. iu one hour you una !>? in th? int?rio * of Staten Island, parts of which remain in th? j same slate they were in at the creation, and as i- wild as the wildest parts of the great West. '/ Lofty hills and deep valleys, bubbling springs ^ k and rocky glens, can be seen and enjoyed in per- ( * f?Otion ; and when you have sstisHed four long- ( % ings, and feel invigorated und refreshed, you t * can take the boat and return home in another t t. ' hour. 11 Strange as it may appear, there arc hun- ? dreds und thousands of people born in this city who have never visited Staten Island, * m Long Hranch, Shrewsbury, Coney Island, Fort ^ 1, Hamilton, Hath, Glencove, Kockaway, Hulls' n >r Ferry, Fort Lee, Greenwood, or any other of the H, ,d five hundred places that are in our immediate ? vicinity. And yet they are the only people who a 5 are eternully wailing and desponding, because u their pursuits or their means will not allow them u * to take a trip in the country in the warm season, *> 'J'liey sigh and pant for a week's residence at Saratoga, Niagara, and other distant places; and con- *' sider themselves unfortunate because they cannot ^ take a tour of the lakes, as their more favorite fel- * lows do. These distant spots are beautiful and ^ pleasant resorts, and deserve the great praise <j that tourists and letter writers have heaped upon t them; but they have their disadvantages as well t' as their advantages, particularly so for these ? very people, whose means or business will * not allow of their visitng them. What use * is there in wishing to go to Niagara, when you w can't go without making a greater sacrifice than w you feel disposed to make, and when, underyour ri very nose, you have watering places, to reach r] which will cost but a triHe in time or money.? ? Take the boat or the railroad in the morning, go tl to Lake Mahopac or Fort Lee, to the beautiful ?| Greenwood,toJamaic*,to Rockaway.orany other ?* of these places, and return in the evening. Sure ly you can afford one day in a week or in a b month. The benefit you and your family would 11 receive from a trip of this kind, would, perhaps, * save you fifteen or twenty dollars in physicians' bills. J Let us hear no more barking or growling from ^ these people. If you wish to go to the country, a you can do bo easily ; and if you can't go t< to Niagara, or snil from Buffalo to Chicago, be tl grateful to Providence for endowing your city br as she has, and adorning its neighborhood with 1,1 so many beautiful places, which you can go to Wl in half an hour or an hour. M The Working Men.?The working men of Albany held a meeting at the City Hall in that city of on Friday evening the 2d inst. 'Resolutions ^ were adopted congratulating the working men of ^ Europe upon the passage of the ten hour bill through Parliament, and calling upon the Ameri- m| can State Legislatures to follow the example of ^ Europe, " by placing a law upon our statute )n| books making ten hours a legal day's work b1' other resolutions were adopted, calling upon the ke working men of America to co-operate, in order to ^ secure " the restoration of the rights of all to the th soil, motive power and machinery ; the freedom of the public lands to actual settlers, and the exeruption of the homestead from liability to be loi taken for debt or mortgage ; the limitation of the amount of land which may be hereafter acquired m by any individuf, and the organization of industry." The meeting adjourned to meet again in on the Capitol Park on Tuesday evening, the 13th instant. t? Natural History.?The committee of the lie- th gents of the University of this State, consisting of the Governor and Messrs. Pruynand Beck, of di Albany, have issued a circular, calling upon all w scientific persons to make contributions of the ,J animal, vegetable, and mineral products of the it State of New York, for the State Cabinet of Natural History. Donations can be sent to Mr. * J. W. Taylor, curator of the cabinet, Albany. ?[ Meeting of the Common Council.?The ai Board of Aldermen meet again this evening, for the purpose of proceeding with their deliberations ot in reference to the re-organi/.ation of the medi- ?e cal stall of the Alms House Department; while ^ the Board of Assistant Aldermen hold a regular w or stated meeting. _ jl ThMtrlcali.

No wonder that the proprietors are so well pa- *. tronlsed, when they employ the best talent they can find, , We understand the Ravel Family are engaged for the , ltith ot August. This judicious selection will also fill the coffers of French and Heiser. '''s Thk*t*i.?This evening, Mr. M. K. Burke, h the present lessee of the theatre, and proprietor of the ft baths, receives a complimentary benefit from his friends in this city. We have seen a list containing the namea w of several distinguished cltlsens, who are associated aa a o committee to carry out the above object, and if those we f< have seen will use their inflnenoe, Palmo's will be erowd- * ed from pit to dome. Many professional ladles and gen- ?' tlemen have volunteered their services, among whomaro a Mr. Leonard, the celebrated Irish comedian, Barney b Williams, John Dunn, John Winans, lie. ; also Miss to Anna Cruise, Mrs Timm. Miss Leslie, the vooalist, and a the Misses Amelle and Meeting, who will dance the uCa- v cucha" and "Highland Fling." The pieces selected are t "Robert Macaire," "The Rival Pages,'' and "The White s Horse of the Peppers." Another very attractive feature I is the Violin Solo by Mr. H. Marks. This bill would be t sufficient of an ordinary night, to influence a large as- s semblage, but as Mr. B is aided In this matter by many v members of the bar, and a vast circle of acquaintances, a there can be no doubt Palmo's to-night will exhibit a t brilliant array of fashionable visiter*. f AluslcaJ. ? i Vaukhall.?A company of vocalists, and Mr. Old- * field, the pianist, are engaged to perform every evening } this week.

On Saturday laet the fact leaked out, and * 1 in a few moment* quite a collection of negToe* and aboUnionist* assembled at the foot of Rnoeevult street, where i the vessel wa* lying. At two o'olock in the aftv?oon, a I ' hahrat corfut wa* sued out by John Jay, attorney for { the abolitionist*. and the three slave*, two mala* and a | female, were brouglit before Judge Daley, at Chamber*, t 1 The captain of the reMel ileaired the Attendance and t protection of the consul of hi* country; and for the pur- j poaa of gratifying him. the judge adjourned the hearing t of the cause until 13 o'clock this day. Hi* Honor re- i 1 raauded the two negroes to the custody of the Sheriff, and i ordered tbe negress to ret urn to her mistress on boardthe < 1 vessel. The slaves were neatly clad In blue nankeen, | whloh exhibited a striking contrast, between themselves 1 and the cluster of our native ill clad aegroe* whioh *ur- | rounded them, seeking, by all sort* of sign*, a* they i could not speak each'eihera' language, to imprest them \ with the beauties of freedom. The slave* appear to be < about 33 year* of age. Tbe two negroes seemed to have i caught tbe infection, but tbe negre** turned from every 1 importunity. and pointed with anxious aolieitud* toward i her mi*tre?* on board the bark. i Cei'rt Calrrdar.?Hl'Pirior Coitrt.?

Chikm* Jew* "Kxtiwo."?We paid a running rUJt to tOia (rnt curiosity yesterday, by invitation of (.'apt Cbartos Kellett, her polite and obliging coramandir. Her interior appearance waa striking and unique; tad such vu the anxiety of the people to catoh a ;limpee of the atrange "era ft,"' that the ateainbt ata paaaug to Staten Inland were crowded by thouaanda during huday. The interior waa| not aoceuibie to the public, nasuiuob ua it waa not prepared for exhibition. On earing the "Keying." called in Chinese aomething like Hobblee," the Brat poiuta which attraot the attention re the peculiar formation of her (idea, stern, and bow. 'he oentre of the aides are low, while her poop and forard decka are very much elevated. The sides are oramented with Chinese painted mata, representing lields, and with curiously wrought eolors displayed in hite, black, and red. Near the bow on either side is rawn a large eye. as though it was deslgued for the Keying" to look ahead, as well as to sail. It lay alno be recollected that the " Keying" is early mjuare in front and rear, and haa a huge ;lck of timber hanging loose and perpendioular t tho stern, whloh is lowered or raised by rattan cordje properly attached. To this huge piece of timber is ttaohed a perforated rudder, which can be let down irenty-two feet into the water. When we were on oard, it only rested twelve feet below the surface, 'his curious rudder serves the purpose of a keel, as the easel itself has soarcely any worth the name. Uhe has ro anchors made of iron wood, and the Oukes guarded rith iron points. The shape of the anchors is that of bearded arrow head, the flukes limning acute angles itb the main (haft of the anchor. She haa four long ooden windlasses on board, plaoed near midships, 1th one In the front of her bow, at top, for easing the Dehor, when oast off. All her ropes and csble are cuiously formed of rattan and other natlTe fibrous mateials, and appeared very strong. Her centre and main last are formed from teak wood trees as they grew In lie forest, the outer surfaoe being only polished. The light natural curvet of the trees were preserved in the lasts. The sails are composed of a kind of India lattlng, and when unfurled are kept stretohed y the use of bamboo rods. As Chinese do not ke going aloft, they do all their reefing of sails J .o., on deck. So muoh for the external appearance of Ills bit of architectural oontrivanoe from the Celestial Empire. It it on examining tbe interior, the chief won?r commences. We labored under tbe double disadantage of neither understanding Chinese, their nautili phrases, (or indeed, tbe nautioal phrases, to any exmt, of any nation,) and we can only describe things as ley appeared to us for the moment, which must also be ief, fbr we have no room to tell of all we saw. As to ,e thirty-five Chinamen on board, we presume they >re as respectably dressed and as good looking, as perns of the same rank appear in the ancient empire, any of tbom wore short big trousers, loose cotton jaoki, and carried Rmall flat oaps on shaven heads. Some their perukes reached In plaits nearly to their heels, leir features were ^striking, and like all good looking ilnamen, their eyes seemed set in angles, like tbe letr V, the nose commencing at the point of tbe V. We ire shown many curiosities on board. Among the anllis we saw two Chinese dogs, with tongues nearly as ick as ink, and the whole inside of their ''chops" look; as though they had been lapping a soup made of lamp ick, and this color whs perfectly natural. These dogs ire the remnants of six others. There was also a mony, the last of a colony shipped on board There was 10 a flock of pigeons,.all tbe way from China, flying out the vessel. The China oook had made way with e pigs. In the saloon, the greatent number of inanlate curiosities were to be seen. We were amused with llnese invitation and visiting cards, whioh consisted of in wooden boards,about a foot wide and about six feet og. These, when used, are carried on the shoulders men through tbe streets. The name, or message, is InvlKusl in lupifa I at fur* on nna lit rl n nf thu In * K.. me room were curious specimens of carved wood work, presenting a man on horseback, and the likeness of a ilnese dignitary. TBero were also two fishermen, rved from the roots of a tree, while the general arngements of the roots were not disturbed. There re, also, specimens of Chluese doable swords, or of ro swords fitted together in the same scabbard; also hinese muskets, with their curious match locks. In Is saloon we, also saw the guilded image of "Josh," a bines* idol, in the form of a woman, with eighteen ms, in every hand of which was held something fferent from the others. In front of the Idol ere two small images, looking as if they were riests, one of whom was prepared for holding a light, id the otbiT with the bands clasped, seemed to be in te attitude of prayer. In a room on the poop deck we ,w another idol called the " Sea Josh,'' or " Sinbow," i well as we could understand the term. In this room ire >ome paintings of fine Chinese ladies in full length, i? of whom was in the attitude of smoking an opium pe. There were also specimens of curiously formed >iuin pipe* on board. We saw not a particle of glass M>ut the vessel. There were sky-light frames above hi saloon, or poop deck rooai, formed of cut thin pieces oyster shells, or coarse pearl shells, and fitted in wood> frames, a foot or two wide and 4 or 5 feet long, which rved for sky-lights. A considerable curiosity was a al umbrella, intended for the use of persons of wealth id rank; the staff was about the size of a man's wrist, id a or 0 feet long; near the top was a rude ornamented Eie work, something like a common umbrella; over Is thrown when in use, a richly ornamented scarlet oover. This umbrella is said to be carried by a ant, and held over the party requiring its prosciion. When not in use the silk covering can e taken off, and folded up for future use, 'here was not a water barrel, or other keg or barrel, to e seen on board. The water tanks were all formed of olid teak wood, and were very tight. The vessel is dlided by teak bulkheads into five water tight compartlenta, co that they would all have to be filled by leakage efore she could beoome water logged or sink. The aptatn not being on board, we were politely received by be second officer, who kindly conducted us through the trange "craft," even through the peculiar cabooje. rhere the cook, a Chinese, was preparing dinner, and rho told us, through the interpreter, that he wished to et the situation of a cook In New Vork. besides the ook, we saw the Chinese professional artist, or painter, t work, who was said to have leached the head of his rofession at bone ; he was a man of 66, and so attenated, as to be a matoh for Calvin Kdsi.n. He had no Mel before him ; but bis canvas (eilk or paper) lay flat n a tablet before him, over which he moved and held is penoil in a perpendlcnlar manner. In the saloon was processien scene in honor oflhe Emperor, the work ot ... Tk? i'kUo.i. ?... alUA t A ire, anil have* love for the ludicrous. In one place *een a picture representing a fat Chinaman on orseback, and : another trying to ride double on the tmi horse behind him, and can only keep bis place by olding on to the peruke or cue of hia fat companion in 'out, who Is anxiously urging the horse forward, Kvery ody knows that the only deficiency in Chinese artistic ! kill, is the want of perspective. The floor of the saloon as painted over with Images of red flsb and all manner f things In all manner of shapes. We bave not room >r further details. When arranged for exhibition the rhole will present a scene well worth visiting The reset itself is a great curiosity, and there are some things bout her sailing qualities quite contrary to what might ? expected. The officers stated, that although they lad some very rough weather, iihe kept remarkably dry, nd never shipped a sea. That they were never in a essel before that had as little motion. That a lady who lad never been to sea, would scarcely feel the effects of ea sickness. In rough weather the was remarkably easy, lefore the wind, they said they could sometimes make welve knots per hour. That properly rigged she would ail very well. Tbey said they were detained three rerks in the straits of Sundv by contrary winds >nd currents. Iter planking and everything else is put oguther in a different style from the methods we adopt ur doing similar work: and though rudely built, all Is xceedingly strong and well put together Ourshiprrights had better examine the manner of her make, he.. ? they may, though termed by.the Celestials, as outside barbarians,'' gather some hints that may prove useful. iVe.understand that Capt. Kellett intends, in a day of wo, moving the Keying from her present anchorage to i point near the city, for the purpose of exhibiting her .nd contents. On board the Keying are Chinese small loats, and also a perfect model of tiercelf,made by Chinanen. Among the Chinese on board are several mechanics, such as carpenters and other tradesmen. Thk Wraths*.?Yesterday was an agreeable sort of lay, and our citizens seemed to avail themselves of it, nany of whom flocked to the beautiful ri-treats in the uburbs and immediate vicinity, vli: Hoboken, Staten sland, Williamsburg, Itc We had a soft shower of rain bout I'1 o'clock M . preceded by distaut thunder This lad the effect to cool the atmosphere a good deal.

Buffalo, Juno 30, 1847. Travel to the West via the Lakrt. It is astonishingly warm here to-day, and the crowd of New Yorkers at the hotels is evidenoe that it is no less so with you. I have been an annual visiter to the lakes for the last seven years, but have never before soea suoh , a throng of eastern people here as now. A trip to Green Bay and Chicago?plaoes but a few years ago the very borders of civilisation?is now an every day affdlr ; and the United States does not, probably, afford a more exhilirating or delightful journey. Yet there are but few eastern people who know,comparatively, any thing of its pleasures. New Yorkers?or, at any rate, most of them?seem to think it a long and tedious journey, and to be taken only in cases of dire necessity. How far this idea is from the truth, may be seen by a short description of a passage from New York to Chicago. You take the seven o'clock boat on Monday evening for Albany. The first hour you havo a fine view of the palisades, the wild and rooky shore of New Jersey, and the rich green fields and chequered bill.- f Westchester; the second, the dark penks of the highlands rise up between you and " last Streak of light from the setting sun; or, Boon is "riding high" in the clear bright they are canting their long (lark Hiiauown -n uie plain. 11 now you are familiar with t i udson and its sceuory, and not intoxicated witl '?e views, you retire to your berth, and, when y<> at dawn of day, you are in Albany. Here you ur breakfast, and, at half-past seven, you step to tli Iroa d pay the olerk twelve dollars, and get a tic i or iiuilalo. An uninteresting ride, for an hour bring.-, you to Schenectady. and here you have the first glimpse of the rich west. The first view of the town is most picturesque. You are gome eighty to a hundred feet above it, and as you see it as it were huddled into one corner of a rioh and fertile plain, it has the appearance of a bed of rosea in the corner of a garden. You are now in the valley of the Mohawk, whirling through its green fields, and winding around the rocky bane of its gigantic hills, at tho rate of twenty miles an hour. Every fifteen minutes you are whirled through a village, that seem to come and go lik<- some phantom in a vision. Aad now you find yourself in lltica. Here you stop for dinner, and then, with the same rapidity, you fly away to Syracuse, where you can stop till morning, if too muoh fatigued to ride all night, if, however, you are in a hurry, as traveller* generally are, you can keep your Beat in the cars, and, at sunrise the next morning, set down in Buffalo. But, if you prefer travelling by daylight, you can spend the night in Syracuse or Aubnrn, and, the next day, you have an opportunity to see the beautiful villages of Geneva, Canandaigua. Batavla, and the city of Roohecter, and arrive in Buffalo in the evening of the second day?Wednesday. You now take passage on one of the large Upper Lake boats, the most elegant floating palaces in the world.? Here you are sure to flnd a large oompany of ladies and gentlemen, bound on a voyage of pleasure, with every accompaniment?guns, fishing tackle, harps, flutes, violins, besides * good band of music and a piano. The next morning?which brings us to Thursday?you land at Cleveland ; and here, while the boat is taking in wood, See , you have an hour or two to ride around the town. About twenty or thirty young ladles and gentlemen charter some four or five stages, and they make the town echo with their merry laugh, as they dash and whirl through Its wide and elegant streets. The citixens are all excitement, while the boat remains, lor they soon learn that a " pleasure party" is on board, and every thing that can be, is done to make them happy. Vou leave Cleveland at eleven or twelve o'clock, and the next morning, ifridav, at daylight, you are in Detroit. Another hour or two is spent riding about the city, and you are off for Mackinac. Saturday morning finds you moored amidst bark canoes and Indian tunts. close under a high rocky fort, bristling with a hundred cannon. After getting a breakfast of Mackinac trout, trying your luck at fishing iu water so clear that you can see a trout twenty feet from the surfaoe?buying a few trinkets from the young squaws?visiting the forts and barracks, you sail for Chicago, where you arrive on Sunday at sunrise, making the whole trip of fifteen hundred miles in five days, at an expense of twenty-one dollars, all told. The fare on the lakes Is eight dollars, or about two dollars a day?the same as at a hotel. This Includes passage and board. I have been rather lengthy and particular in my description of a trip to Chicago, because I have been so often asked how long it would take, how much it wculd cost, and what kind of fun or pleasure one could find In going such a route. To those who are accustomed to spend their summers at fashionable watering places and on the sea shore, let me say, that with half the expense, and less time than they usually take from their business in visiting these places, they csin take a journey to Lake Superior, lireen Day, Mackinac, Chicago?cross the State of Michigan by land, on their return, and vlill ?h? nHnftind towns on the shores of l.ikH K.rie? see more- learn more?feel more?think more, and enjoy more, than in a dozen visit* to Saratoga. At tbia time the boat* are crowded wi'h delegate* to the Convention, and there i* more excitement than usual. But all are delighted, and I am mistaken If the summer of IH47 does not form an era in lake travel long to be remembered. We take the Kmpire to-night, with a large party of the New York delegation, and expeot to arrive in Chicago on Suuday morning. Thin is considered the crack boat; and for the benefit of those; who contemplate a trip Went, I would say that she leave* here on the 3tith July, for a pleasure excursion to Ureen Bay and Chicago.

The stook market during the past week has been subjeot to those fluctuations which are usually experienced at this season of the year. The absence of many operators has a depressing influence upon the market, and prices are with difficulty sustained, notwithstanding the abundanoe of money and the reduced rate of interest. There are a great|many weak holders of fancy stocks, and the first reverse compels them to realize at any sacrifice. There is a class of speculators which a rising market always brings out, and these operators purohase as largely as possible, upon time, with the hope that before their oontruets run out prices will run up, and they will realize a handsome profit, without any outlay of capital and with a trifling risk. la the event of prices taking a downward turn, these speculators erowd their stock upon the market, and force it off at any price. Many of them have nothing to lose, and are therefore indifferent about the course things take If the market goes up, very good, and if it goes down very geod too; they may make something, and they are very sure of not losing much. It is this class of speculators that upsets, from time to time, the market, and causes those sudden and ruinous fluctuations in prlees. Having no capital, and operating Bntirely upon credit, buyers' option, they cannot;hold on beyond the maturity of their contracts. The bulls have, for some time past, had everything in the stock market nearly their own way. Prices have, during the past sixty days, been stoadily advancing, and the rise within that time has, in several instances, been equal to ten and fifteen per cent. The margin for a fall Is not so wide as the advance has been, as there has been a very deoided improvement in the real value of some of the fancies; and when the advanoe commenced, nrlnea ruled cxcmiIIbiW low. W? do not look for lm immediate reduction in quotations for fancy stocks, generally ; but, on the contrary, we anticipate a further improvement as soon as the present dull season is past. This improvement cannot be but temporary, and we predict that it will be followed by a contraction of prices to a point nearly upon a level with that from which they started. The cause or causes for this reduction are, in the first place, more extensive importations of foreign merchandise, producing a more stringent operation of the Inde pendent Treasury system, and as a natural oonsequence a more contracted movement on the part of our banking Institutions. We have not had a more abundant supply of money, or a more reduoed rate of interest both in and out of tho banks, for years, than we have had within the past sixty days, the effeot of which has been an inflation in prioes for all kinds of stocks. Notwithstanding this plethora in the money market, there is no doubt but that the fact oi the independent Treasury Act being in existence, ha* had a very material influence in regulating the expansion, and keeping it within more reasonable limits. About two years ago, when the speculation In stocks run prioes for many of the fancies up in many instances twenty and thirty per cent above present prioes, the expansion on the part of the.banks was not so great as It is now, and the rate of interest did not range so low. There was at that time nothing to check the upward movement, and some of the fancies, not aotually worth thirty per cent, reached nearly par. Sinoe, they have fallen to their real value, and have experienced another inflation. The immense importations of specie within the past six months, in connection with the expanded condition of the banks, have not carried up stocks so high as they reached two years ago. We look upon this faot as a very favorable feature in the money market, and believe thit the financial policy of the government is produolng a more healthy condition of finanoial affairs generally, a more uniform value in the currency, and when it becomes more generally administered, a more uniform movement In our banking Institutions. The todependent Treasury system has not, as yet, been fairly tested. The finanoial operations of the government have not given it a chance to be oarried thoroughly into operation, and it has, therefore, been almost a dead letter. The law has been in existence, but so far as its actual Influence upon the money market is concerned, It has not been very Important. There is at present every probability of a large importation of foreign merchandise for the fall trade, with a more limited exportation of domestic products ; this will cheok the receipts of specie, advsnoe quotations for foreign exchange, bring the Independent Treasury into vaneral oneration. and oroduce restrictions UDon the money market calculated to have an unfavorable influence upon itocka. Under the most favorable circumstances we cannot expeot an easier money market than exists at thl* moment ;but on the contrary, any change la likely to be for the worse, and It is, therefore, best to be prepared for It. The Influence of cornering operations In Wall street upon whatever stock or stocks may from time to time be taken up by .any clique of brokers, is such as to defy the effect of the money market upon prices, and for a time oarry them up, in spite i f everything to the oontrary1 until the qfltlosive point Is reaohed. Of these movements we can tell nothing about; but, as we have before said, there may be a general Improvement upon the opening of the fall business of several per cent; but there are reasons why any further improvement should be but temporary. As regards the Mexican war, we have very little tc hope for and very little to fear. We are as little affeoted favorably, or unfavorably, as we shall be if hostilities clese to-morrow or are continued for years. Rumors ol peaoe have recently been so flattering that all the good has been anticipated; and a military occupation of that Republic will not be attended with any very great expenditure from our own Treasury. We therefore consider the Mexican war as having very little influence in any way upon commercial matters. So long as it con tlnues, *o long will concessions bare to be ma<le In relatlon to the specie clause of the Independent Treasury ant, as that system cannot be fully carried out until the expenditure* of the government are reduced to the or. dinary standard, until its whole debt is funded,and Treasury notes are altogether withdrawn from circulation. The annexed statement exhibit* the quotation* for stock* in this market, for each day of the past week, and at the close of the week previous. Some of the fknclei have fluctuated considerably, but the closing prices compare very favorably: ? Qi-otations roil the PmncirAL Stocks in the Nkw York Market. Sat. Man. 7V?. W>rf. Th'u. Fri Sat.
