[From the London Chronicle. Sept 8 ] The Money vi?rk?t has been buoyant to-day. and prices have undergone some improvement. Consols opened In the morning at H"J? to % for the acoount, and 87 to for money, at whioh quotation they remained until the mi idle of the day. when, on its b< coming known tbat the Dank had dsoided on a reduction of the rate of interest, they went immediately to 86>? buyers for the acoount They soon afterwards receded to 88 to J?. at which price they closed at three o'clock. After business, however, they were ugaia done at buyers for the account, and S'% for money. The other stocks are as follows : the Three per Cents Reduced. 88; the Three-aml-a-<juarter per cents , 89.S to%; Bank Stock, 196 to 8; India Stock, '238 to 42; Kxchequcr bills, 3s. to 6s. prem. i .n i 1u iii" ..i i't'lgu w-i urities. the buslnm transacted in them (luring the day having been v<ry limit) <1 The char" iimrk.-t irt Ken-rally firmer, and some descriptions of shares may tie t-aid to be better Tn? anticipations which we expressed a few days ago. as to the course which the bank wan likely to pursue consequent uyon the improved position in which the returns last published showed it to be placed, our read r? will observe, have ber-u fully realized to day. The bank has reduced the rate of interest on advances to the middle of October from />>? to !> per cent As regards the existing resources ot the bank, when viewed independently of other considerations, they are generailj felt to afford to the directors an ample justification for the step whieh they have thus taken. The general Impression in the city appears to be that which on more than one occasion we havo ventured to express, that as much of the pressure which every now and then weighs upon the money market arises merely from the temporary loss of confidence, the indication of more facile accommodation whioli is afforded by such a step as that tiken by the hank to-day must obviate to a certain extent the pressure. by bringing capital more freely into the market, much of which has been kept back, either from fear or from policy, until the approach of better times. Trade bus been sorely pressed during the last few months, and, even at the uacrifica of heavy discount charges, the obtaining of money even on first rate securities has been next to impossible The foundation, however, on which we rest is undergoing a daily improvement. Tho harvest, (n which so much connected with the movements of every branch of trade depends, is now placed, as to its safety and abundance, beyond a doubt The condition of Krance, too, in this respect is. from a similar cause, equally cheering, and there is, at least for some time to come, no reasonable doubt but that food will be both plentiful and cheap Thoso whose experience enables them to recollect for years past the fluctuations of the prices of money and corn, will not fail to remember that cheap food and dear money have never for any length of time co-existed; and if the circumstances which aifect the financial question of to-day did not involve the consideration of new Interests of importance, there could be do question of a gradual decline in the valuo of money, as applied to loans end discounts 13ut the new feature which has taken such root in this country and in France, the railway system, depending as it should do on the surplus capital of the country, is accused of fastening itself on the capital in which it had no right to participate; Instead ot living, as it were, on the interest of our capital, it has attacked the principal. This evil, it will be perhaps oon I tended,should have been sufficient to deter the director* from any relaxation in the rates of accommodation, and the movement announced to-day must be considered us made in that direction. But, from our own observation, we {pel sure that the market value of money was on the 1 decline elsewhere than at the Dank of Kngland, and that > the demand for accommodation was becoming restricted in a very great degree; and we think, therefore, that the indication which the Bank has afforded, while it involves ns decisive reduction in the price of money sufficient to 1 encourage a return of speculation, will most assuredly r bring out the capital which the return of activity in trade oannot fail to demand. The question of tbe raitway calls is serious enough, but there la a wide difference between precipitate reduction on the lace of adverse circumstances, and the prudent relaxation which in reality waits on events about to occur elsewhere. We are glad to be able to state that the drafts of Prime, Ward it Co., of New York, on Overend & Co., which have remained unaccepted for some days past, are now in order. We are iaformed that the whole of the drafts were acoepted byOverend and Co. late this afternoon. As stated by us on Tuesday, it was expected that the matter would be satisfactorily arranged before the sailing of tho packet, and we are happy to ttnd that this has been the oase Tbe continued irregularity o tbe dratts for so many days has been the subject of much anxiety. Tbe greatest variation in the chief public securities and principal railway shares within a week occurred in that ending the7tb ult,during which period Console fell from ' hH',, to a difference of no less than IJ* per cent , and exchequer bills from 10s. prem , to 5s prem. In railway shares. Kastern Counties declined from 'JO to 19, ( ?reat Western from llfi to 109, Loudon and Nerth Western froni 178 to 170. aud Midland from 127 to IM Towards the close ot the montb prices have improved, but ' corn, of which we give the official weekly averages from ' the Gnzrtte. is an exception The prices of wheat at Mark laue have been considerably under the official 1 quotations, sales having taken plnoe on Monday, tho 30th ult. at from 60s. to Otis per quaiter. The difficulty of obtaining discounts in Manchester, r and the pressure on the resources of the banks there, > appear to have l*d to tbe employment of drafts of the 1 bankers on their London ageats. in certain cases.as substitutes for cash The fact that such drafts are accepted bv the manufacturers reauirinir monev in tilu^e of f actual canh. shows how extreme the pressure on eomi mercial affairs and the want of hanking accommodation inudt be. Advices from Manchester Hate that, '* II*course has again been had by some of our bankers todts1 counting the paper for their regular customers in three months' drafts on London, which bills have been handed over to the spinners and manufacturers instead of cash However legitimate this mode ot payment may be, It has been objected to by some of the mernhants here, being rather an exception to the usual system of paying the spinners and manufacturers, who rrqulre ready cash for the payment of their work people, which, in our own district. amounts to something like i." 100.000 per week, and which must be either procured for them by the purchasers of the goods, or the bankers here " In addition to the failure of Messrs. Kirkpatrick k Co., of Liverpool, which we announced yesterday, we regret to report the suspension of payment by Messrs II. & (i (iregg, of the same place.

[From the London Time*, Sept. 4.] The K.n^lish funds, after being steady during the greater part of the day, have closed at a decline of a quarter per cent The first price of Con*ol*, money, was 7'i Ji, whence they advanced to 88, receding afterward to 87 Kor the account they at onetime were 88%. but the last quotation wa* 87?? to 88. A Rale of jCIuO.OOO at 88Vf had a considerable effect In producing the dupression. which was further incr ased by uneasiness regarding foreign affair*, and by a demand for money, arising probably in *ome measure from the payment of the seventh lurtalincnt on the Irish loan Advices from Paris received thi* morning tend strongly to confirm the bellof which we mentioned yesterday a* prevalent in some quartern, that tli? Batik of Kraru.e contemplate* a reduction of the rate ot discount, from ft i | to 4 per cent, with the palpable, although not avowed, ob j*o? of proppioc up th? Government Id it? ^movements 1 regarding tbe u?w loan. The change la considered likely to be made In about three >ve?k8, the result of the harvest ud the state of the exchanges being the alleged grounds apon which it lit warranted. It app< ars that nothing is yet positively ascertained ?r to when the negotiation for the loau will be announced. but it (?em? to be a geuerul Impression that f imu Cbllc ^declaration on the suMi ct will be riftdn almost mediately. ami that the adjudication will taltn | lao in November Some lutteri we bare mna seem to indieatu that the leading Parisian banking houses have, on the whole no taste lor the operation. It is also stated that, notwithstanding the bold course now supposed to hare been decided upon by the Bank of France, tbe specie in that establishment does not cioeed (including the branches) 150.000.iHK) franss, being 70.000,000 below the amount at which it stood at the corresponding period of last year. By these accounts we have also the announcement of the failure of A Koux a merchant by whom for many years large shipments of manufactured goods have been made to Valparaiso.

[From the European Times, Sept. 4 ] The continued pressure in the money market, and the numerous failures which have occurred intheoorn trade, still render It out of our power to announce any improvement in the general trade of the oountry. Whilst, however, our manufacturers are contemplating a cessation of their operations, and other branches of industry are exceedingly depressed, the colonial markets, especially for sugar, still exhibit considerable buoyancy, and importers would, no doubt, under more favorable circumstances, secure higher rates for their produce. Our corn market, since the 19th ult.. has experienced again a serious decline of prices. Tke top prioe of the best description of wheat was at that time quoted at. about 67s to 63s per quarter, the same quality will not command at this moment mere than 55s, whilst the best American Hour iu Liverpool barely sells at 25s per bbl. On market day ofth 16th ult. prices in Mark lane tell about 2s per quarter. During the week succeeding, a full of 2s or 3smore took place; on the 30th a further decline ot about 5s to 7s was established: and at yesterday's market in Mark lane wheat was again sold at from 2* to 3s per qr. reduction, bringing us down to the present rates. In Liverpool the fluctuations have not followed the London markets so invariably as hitherto, perhaps for the reason that the depression of prices has been less extensively disastrous her than in London. Indeed, during the week succeeding the 16th ult. prices of American flour rallied a shilling or two, but one or two failures iu the trade occurring, prices agaiu Rave way. During thU eventful period the weather, with intervals of some interruption, baa been splendid lor gathering in the harvest, which, as far as it has proceeded, bids fair to be an average for wheat, and fully an average one for barley and oats. Some endeavors have been made to create an alarm for the failure ef the potato crop, and in this neighborhood we have seen instances ot disease; but, comparing all the various accounts which have reached us from Great Britain and Ireland, we are of opiniou that however in particular instances partial damage may eventually arise, upon the whole, it bear* not tho most remote comparison with the destruction of the past year, and in Ireland the abundant cultivation of other esculents renders any partial damage quite of secondary importance. In Indian corn the losses to importers will be enormous. The price of best Indian corn in Liverpool is not higher than 26a. to 32a. per quarter of 460 ibt-. This article has been in extensive demand for feeding cattle, and large quantities, damaged, we know to have been taken for purposes of manure, at prices below the current VKlue of guano. Since the sailing of the Caledonia, the cotton market has been in a very dull and inanimate position, and prices for American descriptions have receded from ,'id to ,'4'dperlb The trade continue to buy sparingly, anil this is likely to be their plan for so-ne time to come, un loss a decided change for the better takes place. Th<sales since the 19th ult. are 41,310 bales, of which 2100 American and 460 .Surat were taken on speculation; and 3130 American, 200 I'ernam. 30 Kgyptian, and ISO Surat. by exporters The imports of all descriptions during the same period are ?4,711> bales. From the tenor of the advices brought by the Hlbernia, It would appear that the yield of next season's crop will be below an average Should this be the case, it will undoubtedly prove a most discouraging circumstance for the manufacturers of thin country. American cured provisions are in moderate request ? Full prices are paid for bacon of fine quality, whilst the inferior descriptions and smoked can hardly find buyers. The supplies of beef are still on a limited scale; prices are, therefore, well supported, but the transactions reported are only of a trifling character. The better quality of cheese is sought after and is scarce, but that lately arrived, finds buyers with much difficulty at 21s The transactions in pork are limited, and hsms are rather unsaleable. The tobacco miurkets, both here and in London, have | been rather Arm during the past month, and stesdy I prices for American descriptions have been obtained The transactions, however, are upon a more limited scale, and although they may continue so, it is likely that the value of all descriptions will be maintained, ai least uutil more favorable accounts are reoeived from the United States At Liverpool, Ihe stock this year compared with that of 1816, Is now 37H hhds. less, whil*' in London it is 1410 hhds greater. Havana sorts have met with a good demand iu London, and advanoed prices are reported to have been paid. In consequence of rumors of potatoe disease?which by the way, we are disposed to regard with extreme cau tion ? rice has met with rather a better demand, and prices during the week ending August 27, slightly improved; but as the arrivals of breadstuff*. both from America and the continent of Kurnpe, are on a large scale, tto demand both here and in London has rather fallen off during the last few days; prices, however, are. oa the whole, steadily maintained. The iron trade has been more steady than almost any other branch of business during the last fortnight; for. aided by the extensive orders on railway account, it has ! not suffered that depression ho general in commercial circles. Manufactured Iron, both beie aud in London continues In good demand, and full prices are paid. A belter feeling prevails in our market for Halt, and an there are larger quantities being exported, prices rule with a degree of greater tirinuess.

Sugar since our last, compared with other articles of produce. hn? not participated in the general depression A considerable business was transacted during the week succeeding the 1 estn ult., and British West India met with ready buyers. During the last ten daysthe market has indeed improved, and brown descriptions of British plantation have advanced about Is , and grocery sorts tfd to Is; and merchants generally are disinclined to furtht r sales unless at a greater advance The market is altogether tirin The arrivals in London exceed the past year by 31.800 tons, and the stock is heavier by 10,000 tons ; nevertheless, as the home consumption i* greater l?y 14,600, and for export by 3.600, the prospects lor tun luiurn. cuuniunnu^ wr nienuy cuunuiiipiiua uuw going on, are satisfactory. The transactions In foreign sugar have been latterly pretty extensive ; floating car goes of yellow Havana have obtained 24a to -JAS per cwt ; while liahla 'Jif.; brown 31s. The demand for ! crushed sugar, refined, in bond, Is less, owing to the di minished means of tho consumers in the south of Kurope Most of the articles classed under the bead of naval stores are iu good demand. As tbe stock of turpentine in this port is chiefly held in one hand, buyers, who 1 have been very cautious in their operations, and only | purchased to supply immediate wants, are obliged to ' pay advanced prioes. The sales of American rosin have been made at higher prices. The sales of tar are limi 1 ted, the article comes forward slowly, and is exhausted The state of trade throughout all the manufiftturiiig districts of the United Kinudom is gloomy and unsatisfactory. This remark applies both to cotton aud woollen fabrics. The late accounts from India?the stringent and unaccommodating character of the late movements of the Bank of England, in enforcing 6>? per cent for discounting paper of short date?the numerous aod heavy failures which have taken place in the corn trade, and rumors of the reappearance of the potato (license, have all tended to depress trade In the districts alluded to.? Our usual monthly report of trade in and around Manchester will be found elsewhere; and the accounts from Yorkshire nhow that the trade in the Halifax 1'iece-hall is duller than usual, scarcely any goods flu Ji tg purchssj ers. The yarn market, also, has been decidedly flatter ! through the last week; though the low rates so long current, not being equal to the cost, prevent any giving | way in price. As to long wool, the staplers an; anxious sellers at old prioes, aud short wool remains without alteration. A better prospect seems to be before the man' ufacturers of woollens in the Huddersfleld district ; The most recent advices from Leeds state that very I few goods are changing hands at the Cloth-halls there | At the same time more activity is expected, and prices remain steady for every description of woollens. The condition of the money market has not undergone improvement sinco the l!?th ult The succession of failures which we have recorded in our present number has cast distrust throughout the banking and commercial community, which only time and a more guttled state of aflairs can dissipate. Considerable sensation was created in LonJnn on the .'6th ult, bv the fact that i a large amount of drafts of Prime, Ward 8t Co, of New York, on Ovcrend, Ourney Co., had been refused ac, ceptance " until the arrival of the llihcraia." and that Messrs flaring, Brothers & Co. had (leotlned to Interfere for their protection.

Kxchequer Bills, and Bills of Kxchange, at the reduced rate of five per cent This relaxation of the late stringent measures of the Bank must tend to assist the mercantile community, whilst it avoids holding out the delusion that the rate of dixoounts can for the present be reduced permanently.

What matters of interest have occurred as bearing upon our market, hare been external to the Cotton question itself, Huch ns the failures in Loudon, and here also to a smaller extent, connected with the Corn trade, and tint often repeated difficulties of disuount and dear mon y. Had we not been overlaid by questions of thin kind, itoan hardly be doubted that the firm tone of our holder*, founded upon a light stock, would have given prioes an upward tendency, rather than the reverse. As it is, our quotations remain very much as before, every thing about us continuing very dull, and the spinners pursuing a profitless or lowing business, the result of whioh is likely to drive them to a still more contracted consumption 1600 American and 300 Surat have been taken on speculation, and 1000 Americas for export. The total sales of the week are 20,710 bales.? Oeorge Holt <} Co. Anothkh IIkport.?The market has been dull throughout the week; for although there has been some demand from exporters, the operations of the trade continue on a limited soale, and prices generally close more in their favor, but without causing any material alteration in last week's quotations.

Among the sales we note 'J800 Brazil at 4d for dry salted, and 3d for wet salted A few sales of llio tirande and lliver Plate have been made at the quotations. The stock in band is very small. Iron?Notwithstanding the want of commercial confidence, arising from the numerous failures in the corn trade, the difficulty in obtaining discounts at a moderate rate on bills of the first character, and the di minifhud consumption arising from partial suspension of j employment in the manufacturing districts, the iron 'rade continues steady, and all those engaged in it profitably employed. Th* principal source of this continued employment is in the requirements of the numerous railways in course of ooustruction throughout Or eat Britain and Ireland, not only for rails, but for stations, engines, wagons, carriages, repairs, and a variety of purposes, for all of which iron is the principal material reuuired. This demand will continue for some length of time, and until its oessation no mattrial reduction in the price can be reasonably expected. Judging by past experience, low priced of provisions result sooner or later in manufacturing activity and cheapness of money ; but what effect the free trade measures recently carried out may immediately produce, remains to be discovered; but that the ultimate result, not only to thin but to all other n&tious, will be highly beneficial, we entertain no doubt. The demand for manufactured iron continues very good, and the quantity exported bus been above the average; the turnout of the workmen in Scotland continues, and trom 30 to 40 furnaces in that district are still out of blast; but owing to the difficulties in the money market, there is no *p< culative demand, but rather a disposition to realize, although the stock in hand is inconsiderable The following are thn present quotations in Liverpool No. 1, Scotch Pig, ?4 2* 6d: merchant bar. ?!> 7h (id; best rolled, ?10 IDs; hoop, ?11 IDs; sheet, .I'll l.'is; nail rod. ?10 Naval Stores?The demand for turpentine is steady; t> >0 bols. sold at 9s, and 1100 to 1200 at Hs 4 1 to 8s 6d pi r owt. which is above our last quotations.

The quan ity required is 11,000 tierces pork and 5.000 tierces beef The improved demand for bacon noticed in our last has continued, and the stock has become much reduced.

A ppcculative fueling hag also been munWsstea but exclusively in lot* for future delivery, our Htoek on hand leaving little acope for extenalv* operation*; tha improvement in price haa, however, been confined to the galea for consumption, and la to be ascribed to tha firm attitude of holders, and the limited quantity of cotton brought forward. It in nevertheless more than probable that a further ameudment would hare taken place had the intelligence from Kngland been of a less unwholesome feature; but the crisis In the money market, which seems likely rather to inoreaae than' to aubaide, naata a gloom over the commercial oommunity, and acta aa a restraint upon the transactions. The season being go far advanced, purchasers are unwilling to enter Into eztenaive operations at tha close of tbe old crop, whilst so much uncertainty exists aa to tbe re orta of the oomlng one; this will account for the obvious reluctance ou the part of speculators to enter so boldly into tbe field aa they probably would have done, tlie tenor of the news from the other side of the Atlantic being upon the whole calculated to give an Impulse to business.

Bo.mhay, July 19.?Since our last monthly report, on the 19th of June, the amount of business transacted hxs been trilling, which is the natural consequence of tho season, but we are happy to state that the progress of the monsoon has been as lavorablu as can be desired throughout the agricultural districts generally, as far as the accounts have reached lis. and thus the prospects are encouraging for a healthy trade in the approaching active season. The sales whfoh hare taken place in cotton manufactured goods during the month are considerable. We may shortly, howevi r, except to see local dealerr. show some activity in laying in stocks for the opeuirg ef the season after the rains and we may add that already there is some inquiry for stout grey oloth of domestic make, suited for dyeing for til') Arabian market, but the prices offered have not yet come up to th? expectations of holders, who are encouraged to be firm by the prospects held out by tho favorable fill of rain, and by the curtailed supplies of goods from Great Britain Kxports?Cotton Wool?In this staple transitions have been limited in consequence of the scarcity of tonnage and high rates of freight.
