The market price of the *took has ?etvaried more than a fraction during the argument*, and those who sold stock, with the Impression that a pan is would be created, and lower price* rule, have lim ply made a mistake. 1 'an a ma Railroad stock U sailing again below par. The extravagant statement* made npen the opening of this road, regarding its future earn If, have not thus far been realized, and probably will net be. The stock advanced largely and rapidly, in an tic pation of immense receipt*; and it waaour opinion at that time, that a more favorable time to realize would not soon occur again.

After the arrival of the remit tance of the 9th April from San Francisco, should there be a surplns in the bands of the assignee, after payment fa full of the first named drafts, and fifty per cent on those subsequent thereto, then said surplus is first to be used pro rata , or in payment In full of said last named drafts, aad the balance, if any, to go to the general creditors of the firm, share and share alike. We understand the ceasoas for preferring the drafts drawn from the 9th to 16th March, are, that parties who came forward to the house in resuming business, by buying their t7 ehange and giving them money foriame, under such cir cumstances, are entitled to considerations which those who came in subsequently, and after the house had re named, and purchased In the regular course of busiuesi, are net. Holders of drafts ihculd retain them and not ?end them'to San Francisco, for all the funds of the firm far their liquidation will befplaced in the hands of the assignee here.

A de-rfase in the circulation of the private bank! of ?83,166 A decrease in tbe circulation of the joint stock banks of 62,026 Decrease on tbe year ?136,190 On comparing the above with tbe amounts of the died issues, the following appears to be the comparative state of the circulation,? The pr.vate binka are below their fixed issues ?787,933 Tbe joint stock banks are below their fixed issue* 319,423 Total below their fixed issue ?1,107,366 The annual accounts of the Dank of England juit pre sented io Parliament, show that the amount of ail Ex chequer bills, Treasury billi, or other government lecurities which were purchased by the Governor and Company of the Bank of England, or on whish any aums were lent or advanced by the sail Bank of Engltnd, during the year ending the 6th of January, 1866, Includ ed the following sums, vis : ? In the quarter ending the 6th of April, 1864, ?3,711,201; in the quarter ending the 6th of July, ?790,000; in the aame quarter, ?6,862,(48; in the quarter ending the 10th of October, ?600,000; in the same quarter, ?4,029,289; and in the quarter ending tbe 6th of January, 1866, ?2,460,682. All these advance! were made on the growing produce of the Consolidated Fund. There were also advanced on Exchequer blHs two sumn of ?1,7(0,0(0 and ?300,460. All these amounts were paid ofT during the year, except ?236,900, which remained undischarged In tho hands of the Bonk on the 6th of January lait. The balances issue J for tbe pay ment of dividend! due and not demanded, ani'for the payment of lottery prize! or beneBts not olaimed, amounted as follows, viz On the 6th of April, 1864, to ?1,099,209, of which ?990,963 was advanced to govern ment; on the 6tb of July to ?1,079,164, of which ?979, 164 was advanced to government; on the 10th of October to ?1,(13,293, of which ?913,293 was advanced to gov ernment; and on the 6th of January, 1866, ?1,066,081, ef which ?913,293 (the same sum as in the preceding quarter) was advanced to the government. The sums left in the Bank of England consequently amounted on the above quarter days to ?>08,266, ?100,000, ?100,006, and ?162,788, respectively. An account of the recsipt and expenditure of the sum of ?2,794,722 during the year 1864 by the Commissioners for the Reduction of the National Debt, shows that the greater portion of the receipts accrued from "cash received at sundry times from the Exchequer," and that nearly all of this cash, or ?2,771,697, was expended in the purchase of Ex chequer bills. Tbe rest of tbe receipts were appropriat ed to the purchase of ?2,974 Consols, and ?24,921 Re duced Annuities Consolidated. A supplementary return states that on the 16th of February, 1864, Mr. Gladstone, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, applied to the Bank for advances on Exchequer bills of suth sums as should not leave a larger amount of the said bills in the hands of tbe Governor of the Bank than ?1,000,000; and that on the 8th of June, 1864, a similar advance was requeited to Ihe amount of ?760,000. Both sequeet* were com" plied with by the Court of Directors of the Bank of Eng land. Stock Eiehang*. Wxdmkpay, April 11, 1855 $10,000 Ind.

The supply of cattle this week waa much more liberal than It hai been for some time pait, and the quality of the offerings, in general, was somewhat bitter than usual. Prices, however, are unyielding, and, la conse quence, buyers are disposed to hold off a little. Most of the cattle ia the yards to-day were from this Statt and the West? chiefly Illinois. Few cattls worth speaking of were sold under 10 cents; the average may be quoted at from lOXc. to 12Xc. the pound. Some transactions at 13c. were reported, but we could not trace them to a re liable source. The market at the close was dull, with about 200 head left over unsold. The show of other stock at this market this week was not of muck adeount. Pricet. Beef cattle, extra quality, per 100 lbs . . . $11 00 a $13 BO Do. good quality 10 60 a 10 76 Do. common. ? a ?
