[From the AUewmelns Z?ltung, Oct '18 ] The present aspect of the Stock Exchange might justify the belief that the worst is over, for tli* publip have largely bought lip Consols; this, however, is a very fallacious sign, for these purchases of Htock are notoriously made for th^ accounts of private individuals, who avail themselves of the_ present depressed state of consols to make profitable investments ; but this, on the whole, can be of little assistance, as the amount cannot be large. Formerly, when consols were reduced by contingencies to 87 or I 88, the public rushed into the Stock Exchange I to avail themselves of the favorable opportunity. Now, when stocks are much lower, a (evv hundred thousands only ureslowlv and hesitatingly bought in at a price of 80. .Vo/em voleni, the radical error must be reverted to?namely, the railroad payments; a few companies nave already suspended their "calls.*' but, nevertheless. more money continues to be spent than tne nation cua afford, and a still severer monetary pressure, and a greafer prevalence of distress, i- ? i? u. <v.r? fhe nnblic wnl become musi i?KC c r I aware of the absolute impossibility of going on. In addition to this, several railroad compuues | have already resorted to the dangerous means of paving their contractors in bills of exchange. The Birmingham school of political economy, which lately convened a public meeting for tne purpose of thundering away against Peel's Bank Kill of 1844. uttered nothing but smoke in their resolution, that the odium of the crisis was unjustly cast uoon the railroad disbursements, whereas the mischief was solely attributable to the banking arranuementB of Peel. This is sheer nonsense, and will produce no impression on anybody?no more than the Anti-Gold-Law Leigue, winch is but a base and beggarly imitation of the Anti-Corn-Law Confederation. The hast argument ai/ainst the opinion that the railrouds are not in fault,is the seriously propounded project to issue a new and. inconvertible paper money, bearing 5 per cent, interest, on the security of those railroads which yield an interest of 5 per cent, and upwards. This paper would ceituinly be safe , but would not such an issue of paper be equivilent ton secret confinc ttion "f , all railroad property of the 6tate 1 To this, however, it may eventually come. The railroad works cannot go on, and the only question is who is to stop first 1 If the government do not interfere, every one will go on as long as he can; but in the mean time money must remain at an unnaturally high price, ?nd by Hnd by thousands will be left destitute. t > say nothing of the immense loss of capital which the projectors will v be compelled to sustain. [From th? Furopmn Times, Nor. 4.] We rearet to state that, besides the mercantile failures, we have to record the stoppage of several banks in various pirts of the country ? The North and South Wales B*nk at Liverpool, i having numerous branches in the Principnlity, has sue urn bed under the influence of a mischievous report, which caused a run upon the bank. The Salisbury Bank (Brodie & Co ,) the Shaftesbury and Hiudon Bank (Brodie & King.) and the Shrews-bury Bank (Adams, Warren & Co.) have also stopped payment. Manchester h;?s not escaped ainid the e.xten tive ruin which has prevailed elsewhere. The | i-tiinr?- of Mr. Robert Gardner, a merchant trad- l i'ig hrgely to China and the East Indie*, be nides having extensive spinningand manufactur'1*5 establishments, has produced great surprise. The house, of It & J. Farbridge, and Martin & Hartwright, besides several minor firms, have also tailed. In London the chief suspensions have been Scott, Bell & Co., extensive East India merchants, who have, however, it is stited, since resumed business. The colonial brokers of Mincing-lane, J. p. Howard &. Co., and Charles Sutherland & Co., have also been compelled to ! call their creditors together. The latter has returned business. We regret to stHte that Messrs. Coates & Co., the buyers of goods for the American market in Broad-street, Cheapside, have Mopped p:iym""t. Their liabilities'are estimated m about ?100,000. Mr. J. S. Curtis, an old house in the hide trade, has also failed. On the continent considerable failures have fallen place ; Leghorn, Genoa, Trieste, Lisbon, and Ghent, h tving chiefly suffered. The French house, at St. Petersburgh, of C. Riva & Co., has also failed. We niny n?ntion here that the drafts of the Union Bank of Calcutta have been refused acceptance by the London agents, and have been returned, the effect of which will be serious to the parent establishment. The statement of the affairs of Messrs. Gower .?. Tk-:? i...uiKtint! y o. is inn vriy muiniawuirv. x iicii nnmnn'c ..v iM50,K52; their ledger balances are ?573,501; the j>r**.?ent valuation ol their assets only ?112.:W1 The Mauritius estates do not seem to he eapible of valuation. The debts of Fry & Griffiths are ?90,979, whilst the credits are but ?19,231. An investigation of their case is in progress. It was with sincere regret that we had to announce in our paper of the 5th ult. the failure ot the highly respectable firm of Messrs Thomas, Son, & Lefevre, extensively engaged in the Russian trade. Letters received in Hamburgh state that" the Emperor of Russia hud t-iven orders to the bank to assist every merchant that might be able to prove his solvency by his books." We are gratified to learn that Messrs. Thomas, Son &. Lefevre were the first to whom this generous aid of the Emperor was extended. In consequence of this, it is generally anticipated that the London correspondents of that firm would forthwith resume business. A statement j of the affairs of Barclay, Brothers & Co has also | been made public, by which it would appear that 1 Is. in the pound is the most that can be hoped fur the creditors, and we are afraid the dividend will scarcely amount to that figure. It is satisfactory to state that Messrs., Barnett, HoareJc Co. have announced the receipt of ample funds to cover the drafts of the Ohio Life Insurance and Trust Companv at New York, on Gower, Nephews ii Co , and request the presentation of the bills for the needful; and it has also been notified that the drafts of the Gore Bink, Upper Canada, drawn on Ried, Irving, & Co , will be protected by Glyn & Co., ample funds having ben remitted for the purpose by that institution The interval since our last publication has been pregnant with the moat remarkable commercial even's.

The stnte of commercial si fairs in this coun'ry, us well as the consideration of what i* to be done for Ireland, rendered it necessary that Parliament should meet before Christmas. It ih alto very desirable that if the 13*nk Charter Act should be infringed by the government measure the heavy responsibility which ministe-s have taken upon themselves should be relieved with the least possible delay hy the people themselves, throuijli their constitntional representatives in Parliament asseinMed. We think it right to add, however, that the best informed persons, including the banK director* themselves, are of opinion that no actual violation of Peel's Act need be ventured upon The bank directors perceive that to infringe the act would forfeit their charter : nnd before Parliament consented to pass a I3ill of Indemnity, such conditions might be insisted upon as would destroy the exclusive privileges of the bank for ever. Whilst the bunk directors themselves are actually borrowing money on stook at seven per cent, until the 2Jhh November, and charging eight per cent on similar security, and nine (*>r cent on diacounts, it is plain that, as regards money, no present relief can be calculated upon. The general contraction of all business and engagements is. however, working gradually a cure. It? fatal effects, however, ure but too evident in our present journal. On Tuesday, the 19th ult., a deputation of Liverpool merchants waited on Lord John Russell in Downing street, find set forth in earnest terms nil the evils under which the town and the are* neral commerce of the country was solicited. The government, however, firmly, but in the most considerate terms, refused the application, and in the three or four following days the mercantile pressure considerably incressed Hank* in various part# of the country tailed. On Saturday, the 2Sd ult, Mr. Masterman and Mr. G yn, at the head of a deputation of London bankers, called upon the Prime Minister at Downing street, und were immediately admitted to an audience. They represented the intensity of the . <t?'C, the impossibility of allowing matters to continue without making some effort to alleviate the pressure; that the bankers'were full of money, l?ut not one dar<-d to psrt with it to his customers for fear of a run upon him, and their statements produced such ?ffect on the mind of the Minister, that lie promised on the Monday following 10 give them an answer. Mr. Ilothschild aJso visucd th?* M'nister. When the news ofthete interview# tr-inspired a better lmg in the city was the result. Consols and ahares somewhat nil led It transpired, also, that Sir Robert Peel IikI arrived at London on the previous evening, and wa*' immediately called upon by the Chancellor "f:he lixcheoper. The interview lasted >j?versl hours Sir Hnbert Peel s?d hisladv the I following day went to Winsor Ca*rl? on a courtly visit to her Majesty, all which Was deemed highly ipnifictm that something imponant was meditated 0'i Monday, in the middle of the day. the official document was msde public.-? The elf-ct of the measure was electrical: in the pener*! eagerness of speculators for a fall to buy in their accounts the market became wild. Console in a day or two advanced, after the most violent fluctuation*, not less than five per cent upon their extrem st point of depression of the previous week. Shares of railway*, which had ; been ruinously depressed, rose ra^Iv Lon1 don and N-rth Western rose from ?10 to ?12 H I hIi )r<* Exchequer billa only rallied to about 15d to 20? discount. The susjar market became more active, and cotton and corn advauced conaidernbly The difference of opinion amongst the press respecting the policy of this virtual abrogation of Peel's bank act was most atrikinif. The London Timet, with an ill-<uppreseed feeling of disappointment, boldly reproduced nil the 1 arguments which they have lately so unflinchingly urged against the intervention of government, which was again pronounced aa most mischievous. On the other hand, the London Morning Chronicle, having urged the Government to interfere, in a series of articles, when the measure was announced, indulged in the most extravagant expressions of satisfaction and exultation. Minister* had saved the conn'ry, that journal said, and h?d given a deathblow to a most absurd law, which only imposed fetters on trada. The Morning Pott and Morning Herald were eq'ia lv unres^ryed in th?ir unbounded satisfaction at the acknowledged failure o' Sir Robert Peel's Act, which waa condemned bv them all, in th? most unequivocal terms. The Daily Xnot ? ? * mki aU aavvim/1 antutr h* tK* delight of the moment at seeing "the charm of the net of 1814, dispelled," went po far as to advocate an unrestricted paper currency. That journal said, " We cannot for our lives see in what wny the public is more benefitted bv the Bank giving into the hands of the private bankers a number of it* notes, instead ol the private banker issuing hisown notes to the same *mount, seeing that the security wou'd in both cisesbe the same " The experiencs of the history of the last twrnty-fiv? years, and all of the failures of private bunks of issue, which sprend at various iwriods universal ruin, ceem-d for the present quite disregarded. The satisfaction of some of the journals which have applauded the Government measure obviously arise, from rancorous political animosity against Sir Robert Peel; the gratificition of brin* triumphant is a source pf delight toothers; whilst again sincere conviction seems to be the cause of the satisfaction expressed by more than one journal at the virtual repeal of P~e|'g set The London Times and the ytanchnur Qunrdian, in a graver view of the case, appear, on the other hand, equallv and as conscientiously impressed with the signal im policy of tampering with the currency, but as they allege, by other causes. The excitement and rise of stocks proved evanescent. After tjie first general rush of prices upwards, speculators began to reflect upon all the bearings of the measure, and stocks became at first stationary, and then proceeded steadily to recede. Consols, before the week terminated, had relapsed to about SO for money, and London and North-western shares to 147; the price of exchequer bills, perhaps the truest criterion of Government credit und the value of money, fell to 18s discount; the cotton market became as dull and iuictive <ih ever, and prices receded: whilst failures in Manchester, Glasgow, and London, still continue to cause great dismay in tho mercantile world. Meantime, tho tone of the press generally has much moderated towards the measure. [From the London Timer Nov. S.l Look at the balance-sheets of those who have failed, and then ask whether the Ranking Act, whether a restricted currency, whether panic, whether any outward cause is tairiy responsiDie for th? result. Nay, we will put the farther question,?has it not proved in most instances a positive advantage that these houses have been compelled to close their accounts, and have not been ttllowed to go for years deeper and deeper into the abyss of insolvency. IVhen houses with liabilities to the amount of some hundred thousands | ran hold out no better prospect than a dividend of i 4*. or 6s. in the pound; when the bulk of the property was locked up in plantations, in pro; duce, or in capital advanced to branch houses, and all the balance at the banker's to meet a mountain of bills, was two or three thousand pounds; when it came out thut the house never had been solvent, if not in the memory of man, at least in the experience of the living partners ; when it was all credit, and a feeble existence was only protracted by a continual extension of engagements that must ultimately be discharged by repudiation ; when the venial weakness of friendship, or some still stronger tie had allowed a ruinous sub'raction ol capital far beyond the power of any legitimate profits to cover and repiir^in such cases as these it must be pronounced that it was for the good of society, for the purification of credit, for the prevention of still worse disasters, that there should be an early account. We say it with pain?such instances were only hidden sores, which a too lax system of credit would only develope into wider mischief of houses thus cankered and undermined can only exist by borrowing?that is, by involving tro^li viftima T h f rriHli I he rilKf 1 V(?H mil V be lion e?i and hopeful. They are hound, however, by the law of their circumstances. Their condition is debt. The longer they survive, the wider they extend the partnership 01 their risks and iheir ultimate ruin. The R?yal Bank of Liverpool is so signal an instance that we have waited with some anxiety to see how it will strike our contemporaries, especially those whose verdict for every bankruptcv is "wilfnl murder by Peel." It appears that for a long period this bank has been the jackal of one huge lion in the shape of a certain speculative house. Its credit, as last as it whs generated, hms pledged for Messrs. 15.irion, Jrlani, and Hig giuson. The manager, an able and laithful servant, having advanced a large amount upon assurances whicii were not fulfilled, would have brought the account to a close, but was not supported by the directors of the d iy in his strongly expressed opinion. He fell inio ill health, ns might be expected, under such a trial; and the chairman of the directors took his place. Under this amateur management the relations between the lunk and its customers were drawn closer and closer, till the two parties became absolutely identified. Whenever the quest ion of further engagements arose, there ensued a free conference and communication of views between the bank and the speculator. The di rectors took a review of the cotton market, and aereed to warrant Mr. Higgineon'b rather coo j siderable ventures in that commodity. By-and| by they had but little choice, Hi they discovered, I in the words of Horace?Una dm utramque * duett ruinam. They must stand or fall together ' At one time, indeed, they had almost mustered I courage to cut the connexi. n, but just at that moment another bank was broken by a similar cause, and public opinion became too excited for the attempt So it went on and on. Meanwhile the bank had made other large advances, for which it had only securities of so inconvertible a character as to be unavailable for banking purposes. At last cotton fell, and money rose in value. Pressure steadily came on Panic was | the last ounce that broke the horse's back; and at last tin* Royal Bank, which wae, in lact, a great trading company, stopped, like any common dealer, from the action of low credit on illjudged investments. It extended its risks as long hb the market allowed it. If the "tightness" cut short its operations at last, is It a mur der, or a iuM, a beueficial, and a legal execution f we have not space, nor indeed mnch inclination, to entT into a detailed criticism of the statement which appears in our city article of this morning. One thing, however, is very clear, nnd has indeed long beeu a maxim of i commerce?that merchants, being in many reI spects much in the condition of bankers, ought to invest in landed estates no more capital than i y rau safely spare from their trade. Pressure ana depreciation must come sooner or later o :.i._ ? ... i,,,i_ ,.r >^ijgai j/iaulaiiuiio aic no umt ui ucn^ l>aid over a counter, or sent through the general pout, as limeworks, or quarries, or mines, or unfinished docks, or other such heavy securities. Speculations of this sort are only beneficial when they are carried on with capital that can saMy be spared from other engagements. They are not the proper business of a banker, or of a merchant, who oujfht to deal only with lar more disposable commodities. [From the LodJod Htundard.

Capotes?The following models are the latest and most bucomlng. Satin is the most favorite material nsed by our modistes for this style of bonnet. A capote of satin, lilac rose, of the shade orseiile, prettily oentrasted with petit ooqnesot Tiolet.ribbon and grlffes placed in a slanting direction, the latter being formed of twisted laoe. to match the color of the satin. We must also mention those of the daisy oolor, of a brilliant carnation line, decorated with trimmings of damler ribbons, that is, ribbons figured like a chess board, in squares ef black and daisy oolor, a border of black lace, a deux t>t?s, being posee upon the edge of the front. Bonnets?The miterial now most in request is decidedly velvet, made quite simple; tor instance, we have a ebarmlng model now before us. made of grenat-oolored velvet, ornamented with a tuft of bleuetts composed of vi-lvet of the same color as the bonnet; and in the interior is prettily arranged a dentelle de sols, intermixed with coques of velours eplngle, of a verdant green hue. The form of the present style of tonnets are muoh the same as they have been during the summer, the only peroeptible change being, perhaps, lb at the brims are rather more closed; the crowns round low. Cloaks?Those intended for the en>uing winter will be muoh longer than those worn last year, particularly those Intended tor walking, or negliges for morning wear. They are composed ot velvet, satin, or each more, some being brode. whilst others are trimmed with rich lacee or frinie. tile fa voriti- colors being dark blue, violet, Ste . without omitting blaok, which Is always much in rogue. Neglige* du Matin ?We oannet explain better what ia most geneially worn than bjr giving the following model: A peignoir of oachmlere, the oolor ecru, lined wilh crwe ; large eleeves, having an opening just at the elbows, and confined with noruds rf oerisn ribbon; this peignor is lulled upon the shoulders with revers or lacings, which continue to the lower edge of the skirt; pettiooat trimmed with five festooned flounces put ou 1 en tablier ; uuder sleeves ot plaited cambric. Dinner ; Dresses?Velvet and Bilk seem to rival each other in forming this elegant toilette. We ma; cite the two fjl- : lowing costumes at* an *x?mple: ? A robe of pink Bilk i trimmed with ruches, halt tulle, half silk, reaching to I just the aeight of the knee; plain corsege, made open in ; the lrout, and covered with petit ruoher, parting en gerbee at the waist and on the shoulders ; short sleeves ruches, and long laoe sleeves S?-coudly, a drets of violet colored volours epingle, made very full and without any ornament; low body, and fichu of blaok lace, the ends of which are attached upon the front of the corsage by a multitude of petltes coques forming evantail, and mad* of English green satin ribbon, having a noil novel and elegant rfleet. Trimmings?Amoug those most in vogue are the franges f-evilllennes. the ends of I which are tied and flottants, and wbloh bid f*lr to equal j in favor the franges guipurs, which form a sort of vol in i ] on the dresa, and are put on in five and six rows. tHliag up the whole depth of the skirt.

World of Fmhion. Tlie Com Trade of Europe. [From the Mark Lane Express, Nov. 1 ] Several olrcumstancts have occurred since our last which have had a tendtney to give a firm tone to the wheat trade, the most Important of wbloh has been the rtep taken by government with a view of relieving the pressure which has so loog prevailed in the money market. The terms, however, on whtoh the bank is to grant asilstanoe are of too stringent* character to be of muoh avail for general business purposes ; and wh mum uuuiriir turn wr uv uut b?c uuw luaiivrn &rn io do improved whilst the minimum rate or interest continues as high m eight per cent. The impression at first pro duced appears, however, to have been favorable, and at moat of the leading provincial market* prices have shown tendency to advance ; this tan probably In some measure been strengthened by the tone of tbe advioee from America, the aooouots received from thence by the steamship Hibernla stating positively that no further Important ahlpmenta ol breadstuff* t> Great Britain would be made thia year Another oause for firmness on tbe part of holder* of grain is tbe increasing conviction that a Urge proportion ot the potatoes, apparently sound when dug, will not keep, and that an ex tra consumption of br?ad will consequently take plaee during tbe winter montos. There has, neverthele s, been a w?nt of ftnimatlou in the trade ; and wberever sellers have attempted to estftblish an advance tbe demand has immediately been ohreked From Liverpool we learn that that market wax rather numerously attended on Tuesdiiy by looul and distant buyers, but, owing to wheat being held 3d. pur 70 lbs. above former rates, the transactions were not on an extensive soale. In flour a good deal of bunlues> seems, however, to have been done, and really good brands of American, which bad the week before been sold at Mt>, were on that day held at 27s. pur brl ? The n?ws sabsequently received from the United States had the effect uf giving an additional impetus to the inquiry for tbe latter article on Friday, and the sales they effected were at 38*. to 30s per bbl. From the principal ooneutulng towns in Yorkshire we learn that, though the supplies of home-grown wbeat had not increased much, the quantity brought forward had about kept pace with tbe demand; and prices were not higher on Tuesday, either at Leedi or Hull, than on that day se unlgbt.

Iron?The fluctuations in the prloea during Octob-r have not been considerable; we think, nevertbeless, that the general and d-t'ermineJ movement now taking placH to stop all expenditure on railway*, excepting tbat which is absolutely indispensable. will hava the tendency to reduce prices generally. No matsrint reduotiou may take place immediately. as we understand irma of ihn mmitiirH ftra innnlied with nrdvM for inma months to coma ; but. under the pressure of poblio opinion, many orders given may ba suspended or countermanded; and tbo?? now employed in making rail* and special derorlptions may have to adapt their machinery to the manufacture of mtrcbant. In wbiah there it maeh compeliiion, and tbo result would necessarily be a reduction in price. The Seoteb matter* are scarcely producing an average quantity of pig; and tha favorable prices quoted iu the States newspapers by the last steamer, will teud to shipments and the reduction of stooks, whioh is now considerably b?iow the averngn. Judging by the present aapeot of ad-tire, a diminished oorisuEuptioD for railway and other purposes ia England aud a small export, at least, for som^ months toooms, trout abrcad, we are disposed to tbiuk that tbis article ?n*y be reduo'd in value, aud that it may be desirable .shortly for nor Amerioan friends to purchase largely from u*.
