M. quotation* for stoek* to-day experienced a decline, nearly every fancy in the lUt haying fallen off a fraotion. At the first board Long Island declined % per ?ent; Harlem, X; Canton, >4; Farmers' Loan, X; Reading Railroad, )?; Eric Railroad, >i; Reading Bonds, X; Morris Canal, Pennsylvania S's, Illinois, 1847, f(. There was no chango in Treasury Notes. The Mbts wore to a limited extent at the reduction, and there was no anxiety among holders to realise. Prices for most of the fancies rule very low?as low as at any time within tho past twelve months, aud they are held mostly by the strongeet houses in the street. Thla in a measure accounts for the little variation In quotations, and for the small amount of transactions. We understand that specie to the extent of throe hundred thousand dollar* has already been engaged for shipment by the next packet for Havre. The shipment*, so far this week, have been upward* of one million of dollars, most of which, it 1* atated, Is drawn from the Southern and Western banks. The bank* of this city report that they have lost *ry little coin; but we are not disposed to place much confidence in the statement. The latest official report ihows a diminished amount of speoie on hand, and there is no doubt but that the large shipment* since have reduced the amount much more than the banks are disposed to acknowledge. The Southern and Western banks have, undoubtedly, lost a largo amount of specie, and the demand from thi* point upon them still continues. While they have been eompelled to part with their speoie, they have been unable to rcduce their line of discounts, or curtail their circulation. The low prices ruling, both at home and abroad, for our principal staple productions, have induced the produoers to hold for an advance, and the bank* in the agricultural sections of the country have been obliged to extend their loans, and increase tholr circulation. in making advance* on cotton, corn, *ugar, tobacco, rioe, wool, kc. Ho. The reiult of this 1* an undue expansion of credits, and a serious, and, in soma cum, an alarming reduction In the immediate available assets of the banlco. The Bank of Mobile has already experienced a run from the bill holders, and reports hare been in circulation relative to the banks of Charleston, 8. C., calculated to alarm those holding their promises to pay. These reports, thus far, have proved groundless; but the condition of the banks of that city is by no moans such as to strengthen public confidence. The banks of New Orleans are stronger in their specie department than those of any other city in the Union; but they are all debtor banks to those of this city, and a steady drain from this point must be calculated upon. New Orleans is favorably located for draining specie from an Immense extent of country, and the supply there may at all times be equal to the demand; but it is the mailer banks of the interior of the Southern States, which are in danger. The banks of large cities drain tho banks of tho country, and in proportion to their paper issues generally, have at leaxt dollar for dollar. The country banks, on tho contrary, hare a large circulation and very little specie, not calculating upon any sudden demand from the bill-holder, dopending almost entirely upon the control they bavo over the precious metals, through their stock and other securities.

Since the dato of tho above respective reports, thore have boen gr.-at changes in the banking movement of the country generally. There ha.* been un Increase in the line of discounts, and in the amount of paper issues, while the amount of spccio ou hand and the amount of deposits have materially diminished. Tho returns made about the month of November last, give the most favorable report of the item of specie, as the exportation of precious metals had not, at that time, been very great, and the'immense importations of the previous niue months wero in the country. The shipments since, have been about seven millions of dollar*, most of which has como out of the banks of the country banks. The revolutions which have taken place in Kurope within the pact ninety days, have depreciated priccs abroad for our principal exporting staples to a lower point than thoso ruling during tho commercial revulsion just previous, and there has therefore, been no tlmo to realize; the consequence of which has been, that the producers have been compelled to hold, and the banks had previously become so involved with them, that they were obliged to aid them in so doing to a great extent.? The prospect at present in favor of an advance in pricos. is by no moans very flattering, and we see no Immediate probability of tho banks getting out of the position in which circumstance* have placed them If tltrtv rnnlliA Ihn nmn*nt. nwirknt vnliiii thnv nm?f fx* heavy losers; and those who barn received advances must submit to an immense sacrifice of property, If they hold, the hanks will be in danger of aerious embarrassments.

It will he perceived by this table that prices ranged lower in New Orleans at the close of April, than at any of the previous dates given; and advances made last fall upon a fair margin. And now that margin completely gone, and foreed sales, for the purpose of realising, would hrlng priccs down to a lower point than those last quoted. It threfore appears to us that the banks of the South are In an unpleasant.and. we fear, n dangerous position. Prices may have touched bottom, und In the course of h few months a very important improvement may be r.'aliaed; but it Is doubtful If the brnks can hold on even for that length of time We are confident they cannot, unless tho drain of specie coasos, anil they strengthen themselves In that department.

It was received from the South, where there may be others in circulation. It would be well, therefore, for bankers and others, to be on their guard. We loarn from St. Louis, that several heavy failures have taken place amongst the largest produce dealers of that city. One firm, in particular, of many years standing, and of the highest respectability, has been compelled to stop; others, it is thought, will follow. The business upon the Connecticut railroad has increased rapidly for a few months past. The receipts of the past mouth were as follows ; For passengers, $0,800 95; freight, $6,412 73; mails, express, Ike. $284 08: total, $13,557 70. Do. in April. 1847. $9,526 73.

The extension of the road to the Vermont State line, where It will intersect the Vermont and Massachusetts road to Brattleboro, which will be completed in six or eight months, will tend to increase the business very materially.

Nkw York, Friday Afternoon, May 12. Tho flour market was some 1cm firm to-day. owing to fresh receipts. Purchasers were buying sparingly, being inclined to wait for further receipts, which were supposed to be on tho way. Many dealers believe that the receipts of flour and graiu from tho Wost during the present season will be much less than they were last year. The few sales of flour made to-day were effooted at about yesterday's quotations, but the market closed rather In favor of buyers. Whest was dull, and buyers claimed a concession on previous rates, and the market closed heavy. Corn sold at yesterday's rates, though It, too, grew heavy towards tho close. Sales of meal were made at previous rates. There was no change in rye or oats. By our Albany report It will be seen that receipts of flour and grain were light, while the market for flour and grain was heavy. The Boston line being out of order, wo were again without advioes from that point to-day. In this market provivisions remained about the tame. Sales of mess and prime pork were made at steady price*.

We again nee him promi lieut as the victorious leader of the I'exun patriots, who achieved their independence upon the ylorious battle-field of San Jacinto. We again see him with greut unanimity chosen the first constitutional President of the republic, mid creating a government from nnarchy aud chaos: for two years presiding over its destiny. He left it organized, huppy and prosperous, Ineligible, by the constitution, lor re-election, his fellow-citizens sent him to Congress for two years, and then re-elected him aKainto the presidency, by a vast majority. He found the government in n most depressed und most unhappy condition; In* re-organized it, established relations with foreign powers, prevented invasions, quieted the Indians, und, when he went out of office, had so fur advanced the measure of annexation, tliut his successor had nothing to do but to carry out his designs. All know how well he has been abused, ana yet all will admit that he has never failed in any attempt to benefit mankind. His notions of Politics, of war, and of statesmanship, were all imbibed from the illustrious Jackson. If the democrats have wit enough to run Sam Houston against Zick Taylor, they may save their party's strength; but it' they should take m> a man who cannot snow his face where there is a display of martial music, tiiey will be very liable to enjoy sueh n drubbing as they received from 'coon skins and log cabins in 1840. I make these suggestions as a friend. Though we have not much confidence in men who come pledged to particular candidates, we believe that availability should be taken deeply into consideration by the approaching convention. With me, alt men's merits shall have a fair canvass. Iinpartiality is the jewel that adorns the name of a letterwriter. This much is due to the democracy of the nation, which is of more importance than the elevation of any particular man to high office, no matter how long he may have sought it. Nous Verrons. Washington, May 10, 1848. John Van Buren?The Democrati and the Prttidtnry. The organic exponent of the administration has more sagacity and perception than many are disposed to concede. Immediately on the receipt of the last two Taylor letters, the Union came out upon them as if it concluded, at a glaive, that Taylor was to be the whig candidate, on the noncommittal creed of 1810. Incredulous at first, that an eleventh ? hour, half-way confession would be deemed a satisfactory expiation to the conscientious old hunkers of the whig party, no man can have failed to note the wonderful improvement of the Taylor stock within the last ten days. The chances are, l>y all odds, in favor of Cren. Taylor, tlis friends in Congress are sanguine and cheerful; the friends of Mr.Clay, rind of the other candidates, respectively, are silent, reflective, and despairing. They just appear to be in that humiliating attitude of men compelled by the force of circumstances to chew up their own words, and huzza with an oath sticking fast in their throats. There is every reason to believe that the democrats will shape their Presidential ticket to meet the anticipated nomination of Gen. Taylor, and we doubt not that a Northern man will be chosen, so as to completely overslaugh all the calculations of (.Jen. Taylor's friends in the Northern States, which it would appear a feasible thing to do, if we consider that Mr. Hale's abolition vote will be mainly deducted from the whig strength in the North. The great object now is, to conciliate the barnburners; and feelers, we understand, have been thrown out by the friends of this administration with a view to a compromise. One proposition is to receive the barnburners in the convention, and the old hunkers, eighteen votes each ; or to give to each faction, by whatever number represented, an equal voice in trie convention; and then this further concession is proposed, to wit, that Whereas, in the Baltimore Convention of l$M, Martin Van Bureri, having a majority of all Unvotes cast on the first ballot, was, notwithstanding, supers' ded by .fames K. Polk iu the nomination, through the management of Robert J. Walker ; and whereits, the friends of Mr. Van Huren, with a view to the success of the democracy, did, not withstanding the aforementioned supersedeas, sacrifice Silas Wright, in order to carry the State ot New York for the said J. K. Polk; and whereas, if was then understood by the barnburners, that Mr. Azariah C. Flagg was to be a member of Mr. Polk's cabinet, in the event of his election; uud whereas, instead of the barnburner expected from New York in the cabinet, an old hunker, with an unliquidated deficit of fifty cents against fiiin, was appointed ; and whereas, the barnburners have had ruihteous cause of umbr.ige for all these provocations; atul whereas, some reparation is due to the barnburners for their unrequited sacrifices, and u especially politic to secure their suffrages in the approaching campaign ; therefore, )i is agreed by the friends of th? administration in Washington, including the aforesaid J. K. Polk it, r ii^ rr....... ......... .... yclept father Uitclue, tint in the event of a South cm nomination bv tin* democracy in general convention, for the Presidency, it shall be understood as the will nnd desire of the administration that th<* erudite, epigramatic and indomitable Prince John Van liuren, heir apparent to the for times of the barnburner* of New York, and the "l ist and youngest of the noble line" of the legitimate democratic Bourbon family, shall be affirmed and proclaimed to the people of*the United States as the Baltimore national democratic nominee for the Vice Presidency. Suppose tlif democrats, therefore, put forward this ticket:? For President, (ienernl W. <). Under, of Kentucky?for Vice President. Prince John Van liuren, of New York?could any tiling be brought forward by tin- whig* to beat it ! Again, it is said, that Mr. l )ix has been sounded on tlie subject, not only of tlii- Vice Presidency, but in relation to his presidential proelivities. 'I'll'1 name of ThomuM II. Benton is :.! <? under consideration. The first great object of the democrats is to conciliate tho barnburners?that being done, their pros(?ects, iu any event, are as fair as in the owning of the campaign <>f 1844. The btrnburners are now at a premium; they fan sell out to great advantage. They can exact a retribution for the past, and weho|>e they will do it. Prince John TlIIllTlKTIl tO.VtillKSS.
