The steamer's mails not having oome to hand, everything is very unsettled. Prices for stock were firm at quotations current yesterday ; showing that the foreign news has had rather a favorable effect, than otherwise. The arrival of the Hiburnla, the packet of December 4th, Is now more anxiously looked for than ever,ana confirmation of the Britaola's news Uof the utmost importance, and will place oredit on the other side in such a position an will give currency to m large amount of aterliag exchange held in this market. The Fr< noh steamer of the 34th of November, now nearly due, will pive us fo?r days' later intelligence from London. ft'.rt enable ns to form some opinion relative to the p*rmaneocy ot the Improvement in financial matters on th* other kidii The oontinaation of failures in Great Britain, at d in different parts of Europa, is no further source of apprehension, as those r oenily announced are rmall compared with those reported eaily in the saison, and their sucpeniilon the rtsult more of oonne<*tl"ns with h< uses which went down at the commencement of the panlo, than from present embarrass sients in the money market. The recovery must b? very gradual, but we fear It will be but temporary. There are decided Indications of an Important deficiency I11 the supply cf food in Oreat Britain, and a very greet probability of a large Importation being required before another harvest. In the face ol this, the improvement cannot be very great, or of verv ions standing An exportation of bullion isrure to follow an importation of breadstuff*, and the prospect of there movement* taking place la pretty clearly demonstrat-d by the completion of the now* received by the Brittnnla. The Liverpool packet ha* taken out about $100,000 In epeoie. The Havre pa?et will take out about $3A,'K)0 in tilver. It ia not y?t known what amount the fttraraer will take out.

July and Ootober an designated by the Comptroller, Secretary of State and Treasurer. We annex a synopsis of the law:? Nkw Yobk State Banks?Bank Rt:roaTS and Bank Tax. It sbail be the duty of the Comptroller, Secretary of State and Treasurer, en or before the first Tuesday of January, April, July and Octobsr, in eaoh year, to fix upon rome Saturday In the quarter then ended, in reppeet to which every bank and individual baaker shall make a report. t)T Whenever in tbe opinion of the Comptroller, there shall he good cause to report that any bank, banking association, or individual banker, has made an incorrect or imperfect quarterly return, or Is in an unsound or unsafe oonditiou to do banking business, it shall be his duty to have the books, papers and affairs of suoh banks, banking associations or individual banker, examined by some competent person to be designated by%it?. who shall examine fully Into his books, papers, and affairs, forthwi'h, aud report to the Comptroller on oath the result of such examination, a copy of which report shall be torthwith published, () I All Individual bankers and all banking associations, which art) now cr shall be hereafter engaged In the busiBcfH of banking, under the provision* of the act entitled "an act to authorizn the business of banking," shall be sut j?ct to taxation on the full amount oi capital actually paid in, or secured to be paid In, as such capital by them severally, at the actual market value of such securitiss, to be estimated by the Comptroller, without any reduolion for the debts of such individual banker, or banking association; but in no case shall the capital af suoh banking association or individual bankar, be estimated at a less sum than the amount of circulating notes delivered to fiuch banking assoolutlon or lndl vidu < 1 banker, and not returned to the Comptroller; and In cane the capital of ouch banking association bag been reduced by the surrender of any securities to the stockholders thereof, and the certificates of stock held on aocount of such securities being surrendered to suoh banking association shall not be subject to taxation upon such part of its capital. There is a very important and vital defeot In thli law; bat as it is the best wajare likely to get,we must make the most and the best of it. The Comptroller, Secretary of State and Treasurer, oannot, by this law, compel the banks to make a report oftener than onoe in each quarter, and there ia under it a great probability of great irregularity in the returns. Various Infloenoos may be brought to bear, for the purpose of putting off these reports, and the whole system become deranged We shall experience more sudden contractions In the money markat than those realized under the old law, as the banks will have less time for preparation. It was the simplest thing In the world to have plased this business upon a proper basis, and to have perfected a plan by whioh the quarterly returns would have been made a proper index ?r the aotual condition of those institutions. All that wis necessary was merely the substitution of a clause to the old law, requiring quarterly reports, with monthly averages; that woald have done away entirely with the objections to the old system, and given the public reports which would have been a fair expose, of the position of every bank in the State. Under such a system, there would not have been any of those fluctuations in t.'ie bask movement, those sudden expansions and contractions, which have heretofore been so detrimental to all Interests, to remove whioh the present law has been pi'wa. We are afraid the difficulty ha* not been removed. Quarterly returns with monthly averages, would hive been much better than monthly reports, without tbe average. The average system is the only one that will prevent the banks from placing themselves in a petition to make favorable reports, and until that is adopted, we abandon all hope of any improvement in this important matter. There Is one thing left for this legislature to do relative to the banks, and that is to compel them to redeem their paper lMues in this elty or in Albany. A law of this kind, would, in oonneetion with others, give us the moat perfect system of banking in this country, and enable as to get along without any more tinkering upon the currency, for a great many years. Every legislature in this State, has had petition upon petition, for some alterations or modifications of existing laws relative to banks, and some ehinges have been made nearly every session. It will then be time I* stop. Every thing world then have been dotfe that conld be^lone, and the btnks would then only want to be let alone The fr<e banks are inoreasiog fast enough for all legitimate purposes. and if they are properly regulated, there will be Uttle danger of too groat an expansion.
