FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. MOVE* MARKET. WiDMieDAY, Feb. 28 ? 6 P. M. The stock market app ears to be In * very un settled, or certain condition. Qaotationa fall off one toy and rec over the next. Yesterday, at the first beard, r ri ei were lower than on the day previous. TKi. morning an advance was realized throughout the list. There fluctuations ate all among the brokers, and it matters httle how violent they may be. Oo'eilers cannot be caught so easily. At the flrvt board to day Illinois Central Bonds advanced \ yer ?n'; Canton Co., j; Cumberland Co., i; Erie Railroad, Harlem, leading ltallroad, j; Chica go and Bock Matd, i. Illinois Central Bjnds con tinue in rctive dt maud, acdclostd one half percent better than the opening. Erie Bonds, 1875, rsiniia about the wine. Fancy stocks are merely floating at present prices from oae broker's hind* to an other, and any advance which may be reported to day may be lost to morrow. Holders are able t > keep them up by the great abuniinse of money but this is by no meats a profitable game to play for any length of time, and cannot continue unless new p la j ere enter the arena. Sellers are making interes all the time, and occasionally bag one or two pe cent on differences. After the adjournment of the board the following ?a!es of bonds and stocks were made at auction: ? 91(10,000 IVnn Coupon Kivon, 1877, int. added.. !'0a DO'.,,' 10,000 Mich. h'ou R R., Jacknon br., do . .. . 85a 86>, ll,6f:rt mortgage on Wells' building. corner of Pearl and Wall street *, at 6 per cent 911.000 a, <'60 Memphift <1ty Sixes Int. added.. 67J? />,000 Great Western R R.

The Boston and Wor ester RU1 road, with a net inoome of 7.38 per cent oncost, is wliing within seven and a half per cent ef par. This great difference oannot exist long. Tbe net Inoome of a railroad on cost is the only oorr ct criteiion of its actual value as an Investment. In our calculation for net Ik come on cost in the esse of the Reading Railroad, we have put down the ennent operating expenditures at sixty per cent, whereas it is without donbt the moat cheaply ops ratf d road in the oountry, on account of its favor able grades and dumping facilities. It is only by such comparisons that the real value of railroad gf 'cfct can be determined.

Our object in preparing tbe above has been to XurnNh to tur readers a plain and reliable statement of the nets under wbijli the company was organized, and of its orgaoiration. From this statement it appears to us ? 1. lliat the company has been legally organized. 2 That they have acquired a valid title to their lands. 8 lhat tliey have proceeded If gaily in the adfbtnis tiation <f their afla rs. iu the disposition and manage ment of tbeir property, and in tho creation ana dispo sition of the stock an<! mortgage bonds of the company. 4 That these lands, with the road and all the proper ty rf the company incident thereto, have been properly nod Ugally conveyed in trust for the benefit of the boujboldert, who, upon breach of the condition of tbe trust, may become vested with all the rights and powers now enjoyed and exeicised by the comptuy. 6. The company were authorized to raise money for construction, eitner by sale or bonds, or stocks, or bo;h, or by said of lands pursuant to the provisions of the trust deed lit Subscribers to the stock, we consider, are liable lo asseMisonta to the par value of the same, to provide tor an> cla ms tbat may arise against the company It was optional with tbe company to issue stock equal to the cost ?f tbe read, and the fact that a large issue has 1 (en made upon which assessment! have been call ed In. is additional security to the bondholders. Although the company cannot dispose of tbe 2.000,000 arrts without receiving therefor the orices named in the scliedalts, they may make nontract* for sale ? the title to be passed only on payment. Neither does there appear to be any doubt that all moneys received by the con^iniy have been properly ap plied to construction. It will be seen tbat all the I tads of tha company, over and above 2,000,000 acroi, may be disposed of at tbe pleasure of the company for the objects sp?cifled. The 2, ("00,000 acres, nnlasa they can be sold at tbe rato speci fied by tbe company, which must be so productive as to yield $17,0(10,000, must be held by tho company for a Criod of ten years, at which time they are directed by w to oe ofleied annually at publio safe. It was notour object in the ontset. to discuss the pro bable success of the road. It has been constructed in au unparalleled short period of time. Its earnings are so Soon to become a matter of record that an opinion given at the present time woald be almost superfluous We would state, however, that considering the hasto with which the road has been constructed, and its immeaie extent, and the sparseness of the pcpulation upon a con siderable portion of its line, tho crmpany and the publio may probably be disappointed with the result of the first year's operation of the road, which neithdV upon tins, nsr upon any similar work, should be taken as any safli cient criterion of what its future earnings are to bo. Tbe present cost of tbe road cannot be considered as extravagant. It has been constructed in view of an im menre business with corres|*rading accommodations upon all the termini and upon tho line of the road. The following statement slioas the number of miles opmcd 1st Jaiunry. 1864:-? Clilcago Branch, 82 m lea, from 1st Jan. to 22J May, 1864. Do.. 108 miles, from 22d May to 24th July, 1854.
