The expansion which may be said to have b^'nun in the years 1R">0 and I $51. which re ceived a temporary ch^ck in 18 j J taron^h the trawl of Schuyler and accidental embarrassment ariwDg from other cause?, is now progressing under full sail, ai:<l rap?dly approaching its goal. Never, at any former period, was there so much fictitious wealth in tbe country. Of ba.k loins there are at tbe pre-ent time near eight hundred millions of dollars; oK railroad stock and bonds, twelve hundred?total, independent of other minor expansions. two thoasaud million- of papnr wealth. -Of this enormous aggregate, the abso lute value ot the former item?tbe bank loan* - d> f ods upon the general prosperity of the na tional trade. So long as trade continues pros i> rous, these securities muy be fully repiesented nv r?>al wealth: when a reverse comes they m ?y ?a'l in valne to any extent. Aj> to the second it 'in, twelve hundred millions of railroad pape\ this never was fnlly represented; for in many iiii-tonces, wore st ick was created at the oat-ec tban there was money expended, as for instanc", when the directors of the Central added at a blow ten millions to the capital without adding a dollar to tb-nr intrinsic wealth ; ?nd, a'am, many roads finding that th- y coukl not earn or legitimately pay cash dividends, have resorted to the paltry s:hemo of paying dividends * stock. wbieh was tantamount to -aying that oo oaui-e their enterprise could not pay saven per cent, therefore it should be made to pay ten. From these reasons, under the mo-t lavwab.e circumstances, the actual amount of railroad stock and bonds afloat uever had or could have a?iy real ad'fjuate representation in materia! wealth. But. further afcon this, to* road* of the United elates are nut now worth half what toey co?t. In the first plaee, tli?y were never pron"rly bail;.

Tfcf lVutnral HUtory of BalU and Rnari. Button has told us something about bolls and bears, which is very well ah ur ad it goes; but th? re are varieties Of these creatures which are the .product of a v?ry hi^b order of civiliza tion, and which, interestipg ai tb-y are, teat emi nent na'uralist bas omit'ed to por'ray. We pro pose in few words to supply some p ut of the de ficiency. Every period of commercial prosperity is marked 0:1 the one hand by a sudden aad rapid irrowth of all kind" of tinancial schemes, and, oa >Le o:her, by a remarkable development of the passion for gambling wbich is innate ia mankind. We leave it to philosophers to d"Cide how the phenomena are related, whether the bubble fob men are the parent* of the gambling mama, or the mania gives bir-Ji to the schemes. For us it is enough to know that 'uoth necessarily spring out of and are coincid ni wkh eras of general pros perity. At Mich periods men bave money to lose, a<d their uppetite for gain is sharpened by tfc unusually rapid tccumula ion o! wealth. The grocer, the dry goods man, the merchant, th ? banner, seeing their legitimate profits increase at an urn xampled rate, throw off the caution which xiiuid?'d them in harder times, and forget to di'ctiminafe between strictly business ope rations and " fancy titers." The tangible evidences of prosperity which they tee around them, delude them into the belief that all must he prosperous; in 90 much sunshine they see no shade. Accordingly tbey invest their money in the bubble of the dry; take a ??hare in every wild enterprise that is started ; arid proceed to end<'a>or to interest their neigh bora in like manner. These are the bulls. The Wars on the contrary are the unbelieving Tho mases, who will not admit that fortunes can be made in an afternoon or a week, and give aa earliest of their incredibility by betting with the balls on the rise and fall ol the commodity gam bled in. We saw ?-ucb a period of prosperity and specu l:.tion from 1832 to 1 Mti. The country was do irg well; trade, industry and agriculture were thriving at an unexampled rate; and the contest ??'tween the State banks an! the United States Hank poured a Hood of fictitious wealth into Wall street. Elated by this real and fancied prosperity, the bulls appeared and bet heavily that bank stocks would rise. To them rose up ?hort)y a herd of bears, who I jet that 0:1 the con trary. bank frocks would fall. For four years the content was waged with vaiying success. There were corners made tben. a- now : and the gr?at t*ar" of that day were sometimes caught by the ?/reat bulls, and the papers kept by tue great balls weru in gre.>t "pints thereat, ju?t u? we <*e it in oar time. B t the end ot it wai that th -y all broke down together, and of the two be balls were the mast hurt by the fall, for :hey wont out of sight, and were never heard of again.

This list, as those others which v.u have published recently from t me to time, is got up and furnished as by Mr. Walter B. Dick, of No. 393 North Eighth street, Philadelphia, whose only inducement lor doing >o If his very laudable desire to do gratuitous scrvice- to his fellow men. When he first com menced sending us these lists we furnished him wi'b directories of New York, Boston, Baltimore and Philadelphia, which were indispensable to him, arid we continue to send him the journals of tlio<-e ti'.ies in which the uncalled for letters arc advertised. Some five or six weeks ago, in calling the at tention of our mercantile community and the Po-1 Offiee authorities to the advantages which they derive from this voluntary and gratuitous la bor of Mr. Dick, no informed them of his request to b> furnished with copies of the directories of Charleston. S. C., Savannah. Mobile, New Or leans. St Louis and Louisville. We took it for grunted that his request had only to be thus sig nified to insure its being speedily and thankfully complied with, in ihat assumption, however, we have been disappointed. The directories have not been furnished to him, and be jnstly com plr iut; of this regardleseness by our merchants of their own interests. We should suppose that the managers of the Chamber of Commerce would not need to have this very moderate request repeat ed.
