FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. Farnar, Jane 29?6 P. M. The stock market was very unsettled at the open ing thin morning, and moot of the tr* as ic lions made wen at lower prloee- At the flrat board Virginia ?'s advanced 4 per cent; Illinois Central Bonds, do. without privilege, 1; do. free land, 2. Erie Bonds, 1875, fell off 4 per cent; Cumberland Coal, J; New York Central Railroad, J ; Chicago and Rock Island, Cleveland and ToUdo, 4; ? do, f; Harlem, 4; Reading Railroad, Panama Railroad, 1; Gale na and Chicago, 4* Tee improvement in Illinois Central free land boods was the prinolpal feature of the market to day. The advaeoe is attributed to the report that valuable deposits of coal nave been found on these lands, which has enhanced the se cirlty upon which the bonds were Usaed. Ah the bonds shonld have been favorably affected to an eqaal extent. Nicaragua Transit has advanced a fraction and remains firm. The feeling and facts developed at the several meetings of the at ckh riders of the Pacific Mail Steamship Co npany have given holders of Nicaragua Transit greater cocfUeuce in the oper ations of this company, and in its ultimate prodnc tivenees. It ooenpies a very strong position In the competition. The fare to California has been put down to rates which mast give a great impetus to emigration, bat the probability is that the rivalry existing will not last long. The Pacific Steamship Company will be compelled to corns to terms each as the Nicaragua Company demand, and thus prices will go np again to Ae old standard. The travel ling pnblio are not likely to be long baneli tted by the competition. Cumberland Coal has nearly touched its lowest points again. Toe flac .nations of tils fancy are certainly corions. It Is reported that this company is doing a profitable business and making as much money as at any time Bines its organiza tion, but the stock runs up and down with the great est rapidity. Etie and Central were lower to-day. Nothing definite has jet transpired relative to the terms of through travel and transportation. Reading was not so buoyant to-day, and the sales were only to a moderate extent. The Philadelphia Ledger says:?"The dividend is a matter of much sp seals tion with operators. It is known tost the company has earned largely over any previous year; bat whether the profits will be divided among share holders, or whether, afteramolerste dividend, the remainder will be appropriated as the managers may deem most advantageous to the interest of the road, is as yet not generally known on the alreets, if, Indeed, it is yet determined in the minds of the managers themselves."

Domestic cottons have evinced the greatest firmness and buoyancy; in these, our manufactures have attained more success than in any other productions. The causes of this flatter, ing attainment are well known to all parties, as is also the fact that similar caoses would lead to the same results in the fabrication of other commodi ties. Yet It Is undeniable that in the manufacture of woollens aid other textile fabrics, we are, as a people, far behind our trans Atlantic rivals. It is this Inferiority, quite as mnch as anything else, that has left the market for all American fabrics, save cottons, so dull and depressed for several months The experience' of the past year conclusively proves this. We hope its lessons will not be lost upon the Interested parties. Brown and bleached sheetings and shirtings are in steady request at previons quotations. Cotton flannels have not varied mooh. Donims are quiet, but held with much firmness. Drills seem pretty brisk at d buoyant. Duok is unchanged. Ginghams are in rather better request, and are on the advance. I-awns and nankins are as previously reported. Osnaborgs are less abundant and ate tending up wards. Printing cottons are also rarer, and held 4c. per yard higher, but are rather quiet. Printe are in fair supply and demand at strengthening prices. Stripes and ticks are seemingly brisket and a trifle firmer. Woollen goods are in reduced stock and limited demand, with, however, no Important change in prices. Blankets, cloths and castimeree appear un altered. Doeskins are retailing at steady rates. ?beat the mom. Satinets are saleable and firm. Tweeds are quiet and d) "eased Foreign productions rale qoiet at old figures. Small sales have been made to j obbers of British and Continental goods, bat these have been In the main inactive and somewhat nominal in price.

I From the Neir York Ex pre**.] 1 be writer plunges into the actual heart of all the whirling elements of fashionable religion and every dap business Me, and?strangely enough ? bears with hiss the true spirit of Christianity. Hie book is written with great strength, and thrashing vigor of thoaght. The reader who may be familiar with the sterling old novels of Daniel De Foe, will not fail to recognise in the aaascu line vigor, the great realnese, and the practical elevation of ita moral tone, a strong resemblance to their leading characteristics in the present work, which is remarka ble for its graphic and powerful deiineatlooe of charac ter. the elmplioity, force, and directness of its narrative, its striking and satisfying Interest, but above all by ita originality and pathos Toe death of the hero?tha Christian, and that of the impenitent, are the most effec tive and significant picture* of the kind in modsrn fic tion One icea prominently suggest: itself to us in con nection with the work. Thare are no m.<ans that w* ara aware of by which the aims of our religious ass rotations ?the Bible, Tract, Home Mission Societies, Ac.?could be mrre advanced and popularized, than by the cironle tion ot this volume. In it, religion is not ashamed of it self. TKsrn.MO.vuLH or tiik PrLrrr a its Favor. * * The author bids fair to attain a large share of popularity, and every Christum must wish aim tha best me&Kute of success. His style is clear and his de scriptions graphic, and in general true to nature. On the whole, his book is one of rare and genuine ability, and calculated to raise tbe tone of practical piety in tne sincere, while it furnirhes a atrong rebuke of tha toe pi evident worldiines* amongst proteasing Christians.? Right Rev. John Ileury Hopkins, D.D., LL.D., Bishop ef Vermont. Tbe best part of two days were devoted to Its careful perusal. It would he idle for me to describe my feelinge as I paired through each of those scenes of deep de pravity, alas ! depicted with too true a pea, and yet only an echo of Divine truth. I fear, however, there are few Famuel* to be met with?even in the church of Christ ? although many Janes, De Wi'.ta and Townaends in tha church of society. 1 think " Which" eminently calcula ted to atir up the gift which is in many?both miniaten and lajmtn?to feel their true position, and to bring forth many chain plots in the cause of their Exalted I'rince and Bleated Saviour. 1 thai, with gratelul ac knowledgments for so great a privilege, use my best ef foiti to promote its circulation.?Rev. Alex. Digby Camp bell, D D., Montreal, Canada Fast. 1 do cot hesitate to express my fullest approbation of the book, and earnest desire to aid in ita circulation. It was happily said of Shakapesre that he *< held a mirror up to narure." The author of " Which" holds a mirror up to grace. Cod grant to us many Samuels !?R?v. John A. McKean. Philadelphia, l'a. It laj* open the hollowueai of tha world's show, and tbe hypocrisy of eosioty'a church, with a master hand; and it 1* a noble defence of the true church of Christ, and of the bumble and good in our midst.?Rev. Wax. Ramsay, Philadelphia, Pa. its popular style, and its charte moral character, wiM place it. among the purer gems of religloua literature.? Rev. H. W. Ransom, Troy, N. Y. There are paessges in it of unueual power; the denouo mei't is true to nature; its purpose above ail praise. I shall he happy to recommend it, especially to all in busi ness relation* ?Rev. F W Holland. Cimbrldge, Mass. While I should shrink from sanctioning indiscrimi nately the works of fiction, I have no hesitation in re commendicg this as a timely, well written book, calcu lated in the highest degree to be useful 1 shall taka great pleasure in recommending It to my congregation and Sabbath school. - Rev. J. W. Taggart, New York. Its expose ol the corruption which pervades the busi ness world is truthful. The picture or fashions Me reli Jion which it presents, la, alas I equally correct.?Rev. e Witt C. Byilesby, Montrose, Pa. An admirably written book. Many of the descriptions aro excellent, and some thrilling; whilst the whole scopo and design ars calculated to do much good. Tbe wtholn character of Samuel is well exhibited; hut tbe skill of ths author finds its best field in tha human nature of Mr. Townsend. That character Is drawn with a master'* hand.?Rev. Henry V. D. Johns, Baltimore, Md. As a forcible and interesting illustration of truths so unpalatable that fsw venture upon their utterance, it in a remarkable book, written in a more kindly and Chris tian spirit than any other upon tbe same subject, and will no doubt prove extensively useful?Rev. E. Ne ville. New York. It is a very truthful delineation of the loose system of religious morals which pervades social and business life. Many of its business men are striking portraits of those whom I have met in the paths of trade. Whoever tho author is, he has been e careful student ef modem so ciety, and be speeks truth?Rtv. U. B. Whipple, Home, Pre eminently adapted to do good?presenting truo and false piety in a mast graphic an 1 expreaaive light; and holding, with an unyielding grasp, the atteation and interest of the reader to the end Rev. W. C. Rich ards, Lynn, Mass. Its conceptions are vivid, its groupings fine, its sketch ings truthful and life like, and its broad line of diattmc tion between tbe church of Christ sod the church of So ciety, most just and teiliog ? Kirwan. (Rev. .Vioholae Murray, D. I>., Elixabethtown, N. J.). Cpon obtaining it, I sat down and raad until my eyes gave out, but with unabated interest. The leading cha racter is admirably sustained. He utters whatallmust acknowledge to be eminently needed and seasonable truth; but which, had it been uttered from a pulpit, wonld hava emptied a church, and stirred a neat of wasps about a minister's ears. I cannot, therefore, bat rejoice that a medium haa been fonnd for bringing euok truth before men. It is the sharp spear of Ithariel, covered with the garlands of romanoe, and must reach many a conscience that could not perhaps be touched in sny other way.?Rev. John Wayland, D. D., Roxbury, Mass. 1 look upon it as one of the most remarkable hooka Of tbe present century. The writer wields a most vigorous pen, dealing right and left tbe most trenchant blows at mere fashionable religion, which he callathe "religion of society." He shows no mercy to those?and there are too many of them?who join the church, and patroniso religion, simply because it pays. For caustic satire, keen mother-wit, and manly good sense, developed in n tale of thrilling and absorbing interest, I know not where to find tbe equal of this book.?Rev. Jfha Dow ling, D. D., Philadelphia, Pa. 1 am much pleased with its firm religious tone, and I cannot doubt that it will be both effective and useful.? Rev. Stephen H. Tyng, D. D., New York. 1 speak, for so I feel, in terms of high commendation of the work. I trust in God, and so I pray, that it will do much in checking and rolling baok the cold tide of tbe world, which has well nigh deluged and drowned tho Church. The Chnreh has been so long conforming to and courting the world, that where the Church haa not died out, It too often exists only as a worldly ehnreb. Alas I for our dear ' lord's Body." The writer of "Which" has done good service io this respeot. For this I love him. I pray God to bless him. He is my brothet. I shall recommend tbe work to my mareaatUo friends.?Rev. E. M. P. Wells, Philadelphia, Pa. The above are only a few out of many hundred com mendatory letters from eminent clergyxmn of all deno minations, to whom were submitted advance ooptes of the work.
