^financial and commercial* ?1 Off K Y >1 A U K ? I, Fridat, May 4?* p * Tha stock market was slightly be'.ter to-day. TU? transaction* were pretty equally divided between the different stocks. State stocks, railroad bonds, coal ?tocka and railroad stocks, were operated is to about the mum extent. Indiana K'l improved Ja per cent; Cleveland and Toledo Railroad, 1; Michigan Central Rail, rood. Michigan Southern Railroad, 2>?: Michigan Bouthern Con trurtion, IX. The consoli-tatlon ot tae Michigan Southern and Norther* Ind ana R?iiroai stocks into one company ha* bad a favorable effest on prioee. and given quite an impetus to operation* in the market. Other Went ?rn railroad ato k? kara also W proved, bnt aale* cos t'aue limited. Krie Csntrel an! Rending remain firm at yesterday's quotations. The oonl stocks are not in much demand jutt noir, and art ?ot very well sustained State stocks and railroad bonda appear to have retched thsir maximum. fhers is no speculation in any o' them. The absence of Euro pean orders mu<t have an unfavorable iuriaence upon their market value. At the second board the market was influencel by the foreign newt, and lower prices were accepted. The transactions ware, however, quite Um'.tel, showing a disposition to hold for batter price*, nnder any circum stance*. Cumberland fell off % per cent; Erie Riilrovi. 3?; Harlem, ?i ; Reading, }{\ Michigan Southern Rail road, 1. The class of brokers who are governed in their operations by the price of oonsola bad a fine opportunity to-day to make a demonstration; but we have not hear! that they nude any large transactions, either for a riie or tall. ? decline of IX per cent in consoli is not re ported by every steamer, and they may not have another ?uch a chance for a long time. The firmest and most active stock thia afternoon was Reading. We shall hire the report of last weak'a coal business to-morrstr. It will exceed that of any previous week this year, and be nearly equal to that of any week last year. The heaviest month's business last year waa August, when the total receipts amounted to $605,346 39. The m jnth o^ April this year will not vary much from that figure. The transactions at the Assistant Treasurer's office to day were as fellows Paid on Treasury account $87,424 46 Received do. 66,441 78 Balance do. ???2,314,436 33 Paid for Assay office 8.999 78 Paid for disbursing checks 18,403 58 The Otis Manufacturing Company, Ware, Mass., has declared a semi- annual dividend of 3 per cent. The pre vious two 6emi-ennual dividends were 6 p?r cent. The earnings of the Michigan Central Railroad Company for the third week in April, 1866, amounted to $53,867, against $86,629 for the same time last year, showing aa increase of $18,368. The warrants entered at the Treasury Department, Washington, on the 2d inat were as follows:? For the redemption of stack $209 08 For paying Treasury debts 41,775 68 For the Custom* 30,073 00 For tbe War Department 2,10133 For repaying in the War Department 1,739 33 For the interior Department 6,450 00 The steamship Atlantic, at this port from Liverpool, brings nine days later intelligence from Europe. The news is interesting in every particular, politically, financially and commercially. The most important item la the negotiation of a new loan by the English govern ment for sixteen million ponnds sterling. The announce ment made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer of an enormous deficiency in the estimates for the current year, including the loan just negotiated, had an unfa vorable effect on consuls, and they closed at a decline* The falling off was 1 to 1 % per cent from the previous eteamer. Hopes were still entertained that the Vienna conference would be resumed. There had been a more active demand for money in London, caused, it was eupposed, by the temporary withdrawal of capital for deposit on the new loan. The returns of the Bank of England for the week ending the yth April, compared with the previous week, exhibits the following varia tions.:? Public deposits ?2, 720, 640.. Decrease. ?3, 288, 253 Other deposits 14, 233, 796.. Increase.. 2,837,121 Rest 3, 123, 446.. Increase.. 37,853 On the other side of tbe account:?

Decrease. 612,606 The amount of notes in circulation is ?20 389,830, be ing; an increase of ?657,470, and the stock of bullion in both departments is ?16 .022,652, showing a decrease of ?66,166, when oompared with the preceding return. Barings' circular of the 20th of April says: ? An English loan of ?16,0C0,000steiliog money, payable in monthly instalments between this date and the end of the year, has heen taken at a price equivalent to about 87 per cent for 3 per cent consols, with the dividend from January llie scrip leave* off to day at pre mium, and consols at the price of 89^ a 89%. This operation has abeorbe-1 during the week the attention of stook dealers, and we have little of interest to remark in American securities, which remain well supported, but without any animated demand.

Oar market for American securities continue* ver y firm, and tbe demand for first clats bonda exceeds the supply at present quotation* ; prices here of the leading ?railroad bonda are comparatively below the Ne w Vort prices, and Importers at late ratea cannot sell to a profit. Then are a good many parcels of bonds held for sale at an advance of two to three per cent, which, however, ?bujers do not appear willing to give. Sales have keen mad* to a moderate amount in most of the current bonda; at the close there are buyers of Erie, 1888, at 84; hew York Central 7 per cent, at 93. Great Western of ?Canada have ruled from 17)? tol7}?, closing firm at 17)?. The loan of sixteen millions has been taken this morn ing by Messrs. Rothschild at the following rate, viz. Consols at par, and an annuity of 14s. 6d. psr eent, ter minable iu thirty years. On close calculation this would maka the present value of Consols to be ?80 14s. 3d. psr cent. The quotation for the scrip is to \\ pre mium. Consols are 89J?. The cotton market was active at quotations previously ?current, with an upward tendency. From the manufactur ing districts the acoounts are pretty good. Less business had been transacted, but there waa no yielding in prices, spinners and manufacturers being generally well engage! for soma time to come. Breadstuff* had not bean In much demand. Prices for flour had declined, while In -dian corn had advanced. The harvest prospects were ?good.

The activity Is bat partial, aad price* are so better. The supplies are oot large, bat holders an frea sellers, there being no disposition to hold over. Indsed, then is no eacoaiagemsnt to do so, and without this it would be hat folly to panae such a courts. The demand is mors from the couatry trade than from local jobbers. The latter buy only as they an la want, thas be ng able to take advantage of awry fluctuation in prices. Brown snd bleached sheetings and shlrtlaga an ia rather limited request, at previous figures. There is a -fair business being transacted In denims, drills and dock, at old rates. Ginghams and lawns an rather aaon sought after, but are without change in value. Osaabargs an unaltsnd.

Meat run up to a high figure daring the past week. Ilereafter it must be classed among the luxuries of life* and be the food of the rich, and of the poor only on holi day s and fes tire occasions. Cattle ?old for from 12 to 14 cents per pound last week, in the cattle market, and the retail priceg are consequently inordinately high, and the different varieties have ran ap some two tbiee and four cento in tbe pound. To in some sort make amends for tbis flsb bas become cheap. Shad is plentiful, .and can be had for prices varying from twenty to thirty cents. Flonnders, bass, halibut, and cod hare all fallen in price. There is scarcely any poultry and game in market, nor will there be any until tbe Long Island snipe come in, wbich will probably occur In about a week. We miss from'our list this week many well-known varieties, canvas backs, rabbits, &c. A plethoric purse is an es sential requisite to those disposed to indulge in poultry of any description. Both butchers and poulterers wbo have bad contracts with hotels and public institutions complain of the inordinate prices of all klnis of flesh, and say they are losing money. Eggs nie cheapening. So rejoice, ye pudding eaters. Butter ditto. Spring vegetables are becoming quite plentiful. Radishes, carrots and beets blush crimson from oat of bunches of green salad, spinach and leeks. Artichoke and asparagus, g&rlick and green peas, are to be seen In every direction. Potatoes still remain high ; but if our information is correct they must come down before long. It appears that since the operation of the Reci procity treaty, va?t quantities of potatoes are sent from Nova Scotia to tbis port. In anticipation of good prices during the spring and summer they were kept back; but the demand for them fell off, poor people being driven to buy oth?r food, and now they are coming in in great quantities. In Boston and Philadelphia they are selling for seventy-five cents a bushel, and good Judges predict they will be down to a dollar a barrel before long. Be this as it may, they will certainly be much cheaper. The following has been carefully corrected : ? Beef?

HOW PLEASINO WAS OUR PASSAGE YESTERDAY from the States in the splendid steamer Peerless, to thi* lartc and flourishing city on the western sharea of Lake On tario i And with whai astonishment do we observe the mag nificent structures, as universities, churohes, dwellings and stores! Hire enlightened enterprise has "made in a brief period the wilderness to bud and blossom as the rose." The most prominent establishment we have seen is that of Messrs. Merrick A Wilson, importers of British. French, Ger man and American fancy and staple dry goods, 24 Albert Building!. King street. It is of the Norman style of arebi tecture. The premises extend from King to Colbourne street, and ate five stories high, including the basement The in terior is enriched with the choicest goods from every clime. Ore of the firm visits Europe twioe yearly to make appro priate selections. In the basement room are the richest and most elegant carpets and oilcloths The spacious " show windows," composed of immense sized panes of English plate glass, are adorned with the moat beautiful and vain able artiolea, arranged with exquisite taste. The room on the flrtt floor is finished in olaiislcal style ot architecture, as with Corinttiaa columns and bass relief aornishes. Elegant fixture* for ladies' seats are to be extended through the store The pure light of the tun is pourod In from above by a broad and splendid skylight. In the first room oi the ground floor are different departments. The first contain* the choicest gloves, hosiery and habberdiahery, Ac , Ac. Second ? Prints, English and Swiss cambrics, oalicoi, Ac., Ac. Third ? Gentlemen's general furnishing goods of ovory variety and. quality, broadcloths, Ac., Ao. Fonrth? Flan nel*, blankets, and general staple goods. In toe second room are sils s of the most elegant designs, velvet*, laoe goods, and fancy artioles in general. In the third room i* the dress and general mourning department. Those are seen in vast variety, and in array as gorgeous a< the clouds at tho setting sun, every aitlole ladle* of intelligence and taste may require. Here is emphatically the Brodie" house of Canada; for, as in that emporium of New fork, jou see here mantillas shawl*, Ac., of the rioheit texture and of the newest designs. In this room we saw bonnets for the season, equal or superior to any we examined in New York; and such, unparalleled ia beauty, are sold here for half the price of the same quality east In the upper room are some forty or fifty young female artistes of rare excel lence They are superintended by ladies from England: Miss Oxenham presides over the millinery department, and Mis* Oakden over the dress and mantle making department. The elegant finish, the fashionable make and fit of these nameless article*, recommend their work to the best and most intelligent classes In town and vioinity. As the pro prietors Import direct their extensive stook of goods, they not only have the opportunity of makiug the best selec tions, but, in doing this, to afford them on the lowest term*. Order and olegance pervade every department of thi* great house. In these experienced salesmen are employed^ In their responsible duties they ever study to please all who honor them with a call. But without the direction of effl cient head* in so large an establishment, misrule and ruia would follow. Bnt we believe that by moral worth and high capacity for baalneis, the gentlemen who preside over the interests of the coicern will meet with that extensive patronage they so Justly deserve. YIATUR.
