HONEY MARKKT. Wednesday,'May 17__G P. M. The ?tock market to-day experienced another decline. Norwich and Worcester fell off per ccnt, at the first board to-day. making a decline of seven per cent sinco Monday. This rapid depreciation In prices has a tendency to depress other fancies. Farmers' declined 1 per cent; Morris Canal ; iiarleiu ; Erie Railroad new. full. Jj; United States O's. 1807. advanced ^percent; Beading Bonds >?'; Treasury notes closed at yesterday's prices. It will be perceived by an official notice In another column, that the whole of the preferred stock of tho Harlem Railroad Company has been taken, and that the first installment of fivo dollars per share Is payable on Monday, the 22d Instant. This places this company in a stronger position than any other railroad In the country?we will not mako a single excoption. It places the company In funds to pay off overy fraction of Its indebtedness; to complete Us road to Dover plains, n distance of eighty-four miles from the City Hall; to construct a double track to the junction with the New Haven road; to build a new bridge over tho Harlem *.!? ?>. ???<! 1I?A ?UV. mooliinufV and apper^ nances the increasing business of the company may require. Tho debt which has weighed upon this concern like a mill-stone, lias been removed, and all the difficulties and embarrassments which have for years created so many fluctuations in the market alue of the stock, have disappeared, aud the finances of the company are in a healthy and prosperous condition. The new board of directors is every thing that any stockholder could wish; and, although we regret the retirement of one or two of the old board. It is some consolation that their places have been so judiciously filled. Wc have received a Congressional document, giving a detailed description of a work about being published by Aaron H. Palmer, Esq., giving a memoir, geographical, political, and commercial, on the present state, productive resources and capabilities for commerce of Siberia. Manchuria, and the Asiatic Islands, in the Northern Pacific Ocean, and on the importance of opening commercial intercourse with those countries. This will give a comprehensive history of these coun trios, and furnish a fund of information relativo to those sections of tho world, which are at present almost unknown. The immense trade which might be carried on in the places named, if proper commercial treaties were made, appears to have been lost sight of. aud our commercial marine has for ages been confined to the old beaton track. Mr Palmer proposes ways and means to open and secure this trade upon the most favorable footing, and we have no doubt tho adoption of his views by the government, would lead to a great Increase of our commerce, and the extension of our foreign markets. The territories of Oregon and California are rapidly tilling up with hardy, industrious, and enterprising i settlers from the Kastern States; our fisheries in the Pacific are already immense, employing more than six hundred vessels, and more than 20.000 mon ; we have a large number of vessels trading from port to port in the Pacific, and are about forming steam communications along the coast. The resources of those seas are immense, and are nt present but little known; and the object Mr. Palmer has In view in the publication of liis work, is to induce tho government to secure the advantage our geographical position gives us. in prosecuting this trade. The acquisition of California. New Mexico, and other territory on the Pacific. ban increased the importance, or necessity, for an early movement on tho part of Congress, and we hopo the fact* presented by tho forthcoming work will accomplish that desirable result. The annual report of the Boston and Concord Railroad Company represents the affairs of tho company as being in a very prosperous condition. Tho whole amount which stockholders have paid in, is (330.G56; the company has reliable stock to the amount of $600.000, and the amount cxpeuded has been $3'Jo,608. The cost of the railroud from Concord to S&nborntcn Bridge, exclusive of engineering and incidental expenses. is (215,170. or about $12,000 a mile. This is the portion of the rood recontly opened. From Sanborn estimatod. will be $108,343. or rising $15,000 a rnilo.? This portion is in n pood statu of forwardness. About 20.000 dollars have been expended between tho Lake Village and Hiimncy. The charter of the company authorizes the extension of the road to Haverhill, and allows till 185,r> to complete tho undertaking. The directors propose to push the road forward to Haverhill with all the despatch consistent with keeping tho corporation, as it has been, in a safe and sound condition.? The directors think the road may be opened to Plymouth next year. Tho stockholders of the Uoston and Worcester Kailroad, at a special meeting, voted unanimously to accept the act of tho Legislature authorizing the increase of tho capital stock of the corporation ; and to authorize the directors to create new stock, to such amount as they judge necessary for tho purposes of the corporation. Tho directors have given notice that subscriptions will bo received for new stock to tho amount of $700,000. at par. from holders of stock on the 17th inst.. in the proportion of one share for each five shares so holden?such subscription to bo made, aud AO per cent of tho amount to be paid, on or before the 1st of June next. The directors of tho Western Railroad corporation have declared a Half yearly dividend of four per eeut., payable on the 1st of July, to holders of stock on the 31st of May. The gain in the receipts for tho six months past, is about $40 000. On the 1st of Juno an assessment of thirty dollars per share is payable upon the new stock, which will bo ontitlod to the next dividend, payable on the 1st January. Tho subscription list for converting four millions of the Reading Railroad debt into seven per cent shares, was opened in Boston on Saturday morning last.and at 2 o'clock P. M. one half of tho amount had been subscribed for. The remaining four-tenths required by tho conditions, will probably come harder ; and unless tho bond holders generally come forward and accede to the measure, the effect upon the credit of the corporation. weighed down as it is with an enormous debt, without any means of payment, must be disastrous. Tho indebtedness of the company maturing prior to pling itn energies and depreciating its securities. Tho an mint meeting of tho Providenco fttiil Worcester Railroad Company was held In Providence on Monday The number of directors was reduced from twenty-five to fifteen, The receipt* of tho road. sine0 the opening, were reported to ho $80,000 ; eurrent expenses not ascertained. being blended with construetlon account, but estimated at 40 per cent of the gross earning. The whole cost of the road it estimated at $1.*00,000. The union of till* road with the Stonington and Trovldenee railroad*, has had ft favorable Influence upon tho income of all. and the loral travel of each, hereafter, will show a handsome Increase The name depot answer* for these three road*, and piM?cn- ' Iters from Boston, New York, or along the line of the Providence and Woreostor road, can be transferred i from one to the other, without thut delay which exist- j ed before the ferry at Providence wns abolished Tho Trovldenee and Worcester Railroad has been one of the most successful lines in New K.ngland?not an accident has occurred In the running of its passenger trains, and its engineers are among Ihe most skilful In 'he country.

The depreciation in prices has boen about equal to the increased exportation. If we take the quotations current in Liverpool the last of April, as data, tho decline in prices averaged about fifty per cent., while the increased shipments amounted to about forty-nine per cent. The above table, therefore, shows what an immense quantity of this staple has been literally thrown away. We received as much for 911.099 bales last year, as will bo received for 1.365.063 bales this year, besides the loss in the expenses of transportation, Stc., of a much greater quantity. So far as this staple is concerned there has not boen any decrease in the value of exports ; but in the shipments of breadstulfs. there has been an immense fulling oil'. the variation iu value being almost wholly confined to these articles.

" The Campbells are coming." The delegate to the Baltimore national democratic conventioq are dropping in by detachments, from the South and the W'e^t?from Tennessee, fr >m Kentucky, from Ohio, from Michi" in, from Mississippi, from Virginia?and not one mini of them knows what is to be done. This in the half way house to Baltimore, where tiiey stop to compare notes, to talk with the members of (Jongre-s, to see the President, and to consult the oracles. They meat in s<|ii.tds at the hotels?thev talk over the Prcsidency and the chances, for hours. The way they do bclorr they meet at Baltimore, in the aggregate, is to meet here in detachments, Slate by .State?if the whole delegation is not here, th leading 'piiita dictate tlie ri'/c.

The ienernl will li ive n plu ality to start with, if the delegates vol - tli>*ir itiitruetions, expressed or implied. He may have a Majority, he cannot get two-thirds.

The friends of all the othc iindidates will perhaps combine for the two-third ule. We understand that the friends ol the ad ninistration desire its repetition; let Gen.

Besides, we believe le has no notion, no desire, of running again. Ie has said so, from Baltimore to Augusta in VTaine; and from the shores of the Kennebec >ack to the city of Trenton, he has repeated the isseveration. lie has had four years, his health s delicate, he has a competency, and after a rent >f four years in recuperative retirement, h?i may >e called out again. Rut not now. Not now. rhe glory of war is yet ahead. It is paramount. A'e must have a drum and life?the "ear piercing ife, the plumed troop, and the big wars," at the lead of the ticket, or as part of the ticket. A trietly civilian bill of fare will not answer, as in 44. Not at all. And then New York must be upteased. Prince John and his balance-of-nowerlarty must be conciliated. Not one of the old itagers,_ not even Mr. Woodbury, we fear, will mlfice for that. New York, and the barnburners >f New York, must have a name upon the ticket; list or second, they must have a name. You can lot place them first without you take (Jen. Worth; nit it i-i feared that he is too new a democrat, laving changed front in Mexico?not to the enemy n front, but to his old friends in the rear. It any ither inan is selected from the North, for President, Vew York must be left off the ticket altogether, ind that may suffice to lose New York, uud to lose he election. We must have a drum and fife, and we must lave New York on the loco ticket. Considering Worth to be in the condition of the Duchess d'Oreans with the Count of Paris?that is, "too late"? vherc shall we get the drum and fife, ho as to give he (empire the second on the ticket! for the drum ind life ought to lead in the march. We must go south of Mason and Dixon. There we have Gen. iuitman, Gen. .lefferson Davis, Gen. Houston, uud the immortal and invincible Ajax Telaman, Lien. Pillow. Take either of these chieftains, and you couple him with Gen. Dix of New York, and you have the card for the campaign and for New V'ork. Yet, again, there is Gen. Butier, of Kenucky, who has fought the British and Indian* > tlong the lakes, who stood by the side of Jackson it New Orleans, who has fought in Mexico, and arries the mark of Monterey with him. Placo iiiu and Dix in juxta position, and you can trnvel. .'lay is the only whig who can carry Kentucky gainst Butler, especially if Gen. Taylor be noniilated without the assent of the Ashland chief. The way, then, to the democrats is plain. With Jen. liutler, or.lohn A. Dix, or R. .1. Walker and ren. Worth, they could pull like wild horses, paricularly with the two first named, ad the order of lie day. But the notion of Col. Benton, that the North nust have the next President, is likely to do som? I.image. He does not mean Gen. Cats ; he means >1iirtin Van Buren, (ien. Dix. or perhaps, as preeruble to Gen. Cass, lie would take Senator Allen, 'I Ohio. And it may not be amiss to observe that >lr. Allen is talked of, this evening, among the pponents of Gen. Cass, and even by the friends of lie general, as the man upon whom they will fal ii the event of the superseding of tin; Michigan hanipion. In this connexion we understand that lie probable vote of the convention, oil the first allot, will not give lien, ('ass a majority of the I'hole number, utid hence his friend* an- already astini; about for u man upon whom to meet, thereby to detent all the other candidates who !.??? hack to |H41, including prominently Messrs. iuchnnaii, Dallas, nud Woodbury. Finally, the choice of the convention,'first and seond, is involved in the most inexplicable complexly. The devil himself-?the chiet of jtoliticians, us veil as the prince of darkness?would lie puzzled to olve the problem this side of next week. Mavis, lie magnet izer, we defy, we challenge, we comiiand, we implore, to tell, lie is a humbug if he an't. leather Hitchie is in a clairvoyant state; hut e is oblivious, and his oracle is dcafns a post, and uinb us a mummy.

The Dtx'TOR. Wasiii.votom, May 15, 1S4H. I'iiI i Int. I'iiIcs; some unlooked for change take place beveen tins tune and next November, it is most prouble that the democratic party, iuiIi mh it be guilty I' Home extraordinary lolly, will succeed in electlg their candidate lor the Presidency. This being le prospect, the country has a riulit to expect that icy will make a proper selection. It is proper, nit us they claim to be the predominant party, |ey should present lor tile suffrages of the people omc man whom the people will not afterward* ave cause to blu.sli for; a man who does not liaitually violate pledges?who has some principle, nine mind, some honesty?who is not given to teriversation or trickery?1<> blustering or timidity. ii a word, the country lias a riijlif to expect that ie candidate will not he chosen, as in 1HM, be.nise of hi insignificance and obscurity. It, for ie sake of raising to the Presidency one of their wn party, for party purposes, they select such a i iii as Mr. l'olk, tiiev will merit the defeat which i sure to follow. They know that even the veriest aves of party tolerate him with most rebellious mthimr, and 'hat the country cannot again be heated into elevatinp to the chief magistracy of ie confederacy, a man of whom th'- people know othing, except that lie has been a small and uniceessfiil politician. As for Mr. Polk himself, his hemes are all absolutely abortive. There is now 'It tile smallest chance lit his siicce*". The letters of Onerul Worth have fallen coldly n the ear of the party in < 'onixress. Some say rit I lom.riil Wortli'.j ...v.T^mli to democratic inoiple* inust have been recent, a* they prominre him to have he en, before (he war, thoxiirhlv whitj in feeling. < 'titers believe that, like eneral Taylor, lie m< v r Mated rightly wh it hi* pinions were on smile subject*: and that, on most uestions of public policy, he had none at all.
