FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. MOIII HABKB*. Fbidat, May 8?6 P. H. There wan not much activity to-day tn the itoek mar bet, and the tendency of prloea war downward. It ap pear* difficult to depreea prices as to Inflate them. Tbsrs is a (isposition to hold lor dividend*, aid 'or an im provrment in market value, in ibe face of any phase ia the money market. The bearesannot make mueh headeay against the ability or holders to carry and tha gaoaral productiveness of the stock a in the market. Tae superior charac'er of the stacks operated in must prevent any of there serious fluctuations and depressions which in for mer }ears ware so frequent and so fatal. Nearly every stock now on the market is a permanent dividend Invest ment, and thore who have the capital to hold ei'l aot submit to any great sacrifice upon any sudden contrac tion (t the money market. The bear interest has nntll very lately been the sa'est and most profitable side for speculators. At the time when the market was filled with wrrihlcss fancy atrckr, which aevrr earned and never paid a cent of dlvldands, whtn the interest account was in tavor of tellers, with nothlsg to offset It, then the beer* made all the m ney and the halls were almost in variably lceers. At that time railroad stoeks which had never paid a dividend ranged aa high in the market as those pa) leg regularly eight and ten p?r cent per anonm now do. It is not at all strange that sudden paniesnsel to overtake speenVorstn the midst of their babbles, and spread terror far and wide. A vary different state of things eilate at tha present time. Non dividend earning stocks role at such reduced figures that there is little margin Wit for depreciation, while these earning and payixg dividends regularly, rule at prices, as a general thing, witfcln their intrinsic value as permanent Investments. Taere are just abont fluctuations enough, and to a sufflneat ez.ent, to give cash cites of stock speculators small profits and a lair amcunt of business. Speculators in stocis do not nov make and lose fortunes as rapidly as ia times put, but they go on gradually accumulating or gradually losing, and spreading over a period of yeare what in former times waa tke work of a few months. The change is de cidedly for the bettor. It gives more permanency to the stock business, and more value to money in the minds o opera'ors. At the first hoard to day Erie was the most active and the steadiest stock. Reading was well sustained, with Bales to come extsn*. Western railroad stocks were compa ratively qniet, and closed at lawer prices. Micaigsn Cen tral declined \ per cent; Michigan B inthern, Pana ma, >?; Galena and Chicago, >?. Virginia O's aavence i >4 per cent. Railroad bonds do not vary much In mar ket value. The sale* are not large, and those made are at fall prices. Cumberland and Nicaragua ore doll and depressed. These are the lowest faec es on tbe list, and speculation is completely dead in both. The best stork on tbe mark) t for a rise, beyond all question, is Erie Railroad. When the reoelpts for this month ars summed up we look for an active oat Fide demand that will pat tbe stock considerably above eurrent prices. At the second board the market was a little weak. The transactions were small. New York Central Railroad fed off yi per cent; Readlog, Erie, %; Hudson River Rail road, >?. AU other stocks closed without change in prices At tbe cloce oar qaotatiens were barely sustained. Tbe Assistant Treasurer reports to-day as follows:?

The wbcle quantity of mineral raised from the mine since last report to February 1, 1856, was 137 tons, of which more than two-thirds wss mass copper, and the balance In barrel work. No product had been real'zed from the stamps, which have since been put la operation, and are now stamping from 200 to 300 tons of rock per month. The product of the year sxseeded the estimates of the directors 37 per cent. Th# gross vnlne of ihis mineral is estimated at $63,128. Tne expenditures siuo* last report have been $66,200 00.
