The past week has been the most active one on the Htook Exchange that we have had since the middle of July, and the whole market has experienced a decided advance, though at the close prices show a slight reaction. The improvement has been greatest in Rock Island, Illinois Centra', Galena, Pacific Mail, government stocks and Missouri*. The last named bonds were favorably affected by General Fremont's proclamation, and some considerable amounts have been taken out of tile market for European account. The supply from the Wisconsin banks checks the upward tendency, however. The transactions in tho stocks of tho other border States have been comparatively small. The advance in governments since last Monday is 1 y% per cent both in the 6's and 5'h, while tho 0 per cent two years have risen from 07% to 98%. Notwithstanding tho sharp competition going on between the New York Central and trio roads, the stock of the former has risen 1 and that of the latter 1% per cent. Bank shares and railroad bonds are also firmer, under an increased demand for investment. Tho condition of affaire in the United States pro. sents a remarkable contrast to tho condition of affairs in the rebel States, Uefore tho rebellion, we were told that the > t-nion of the 6lavc States I would reduce the Noi ih to : rai beggary; that Northern men would be unable to find employment; that our factories would be idle; that our commerce would stagnate, and that general ruin vonld prevail throughout the NnWli; while, on the or hand, we were assured that in the seceding ! Slates tho revolution would cause no material in- I convenience; that agriculture would go on as ' usual, and that no general suffering worth mentioning would bo felt. Events do not contlrm this prediction. So far as the North is concerned, the ] anticipation of trouble seems to have been worse than the reality. Trade is reviving in every quarter. Our export* from this port are largely in excess of any previous export; and at Chicago merchants report that they were never so busy as they i are. Industry, which was for a tliho injured by ! the withdrawal of the Southern markets, is reviving J rapidly. Several oloth factories in Rhode Island i and Massachusetts, which ceased working some j : iniiUJh since, nivve reopeneu uieir aoors ana are | jr ving employment to their usual quota of hands. i The demand for army shoes has necessitated the reopening of the shoe factories in Massachusetts, i uud they have a fair prospect of constant work for : time to come. In like manner the demand lor artillery and arm* of various kinds affords a lively market fur the products of the leading workshops of Pennsylvania and Connecticut. In a word, the leading branches of Northern industry, which wore expected to bo paralyzed by the war, are, on the contrary, more active than they were before the war commenced. Aa to labor, it is in lively demand. The government offers $1IJ a month, with clothing and board, to all able bodied men who choose to enlist, and yet we are told that recruiting is not as active as it was. Tho inference is irresistible that the war, so far from ruining the North, is merely changing the direction of its activity and business enterprise. At tho South, 011 the contrary, all accounts concur in stating that trade and agriculture (industry there is none at the South) are completely paralyzed. The leading factors at Charleston, Savannah, Mobile and New Orleans have united in a card, in which they urgently request the planters not to send their cotton to market. If the request be granted, the planters might as well, for all prescut purposes, have grown no cotton at all this year. They cannot raise a dollar upon it while it lies on their plantations, and hence they cannot use it to purchase any of the groceries or dry goods which they require for winter consumption on their plantations. If they have grown S.SOO.OOO bales, as is staled in the cotton circulars, they have an amount of property which, at present prices, is worth $280,000,000, and at ordinary prices J150,000,000, lying absolutely worthless on their plantations. What suffering and want must ensue from the failure to render this enormous amount of property available, people can readily judge for themselves. Their judgment will be assisted by a knowledge of tho, fact that the Southern planters have never kept a surplus fund on hand in reserve for emergencies, but have always consumed their rrnp in advance of its ripening. What we have said of the cotton growers applies with equal force to the growers of rice, tobacco, turpentine, Ac. All arc in the same condition. For all practical purposes they might just as well have let their land lie idle this year; they are as hopelessly bankrupt as if they had ewucd no land. Passing from them to the merchants, we Ibid the latter just as dearly ruined as the former. The merchants of New Orleans, Mobile, Savannah, Charleston and Norfolk lire by aiding the transmission of cotton, rice, turpentine, sugar, tobacco and flour from the interior to the seaboard and tlienco to sea. It is on this business Southern merchants lire, Southern railways earn profit#, and Southern bauks declare dividends. Southern commerce in every branch is annihilated at a blow the moment this business ceases. It haB ceased. No Te.sNci sails from Southern ports at present, except by running the blockade. Need anything further be said to provo that Southern trade must be, at the present time, in the condition which Southern politicians foadly predicted for our Northern commerce?that merchants, factors, banks, railways, insurance companies, shipowners, wharf owners, house owners, must at the present time be involved in one general ruin? The disgraceful repudiation of debts due to the North has relieved the South of a iargc amount of pressing indebtedness; but it has not supplied the commercial classes of the South with the means of living or the moans of converting their products into money or its representative. Shut out from the world, confined within the limits of their own desolate region, the Southern people?agriculturists as well as traders? most be at the present time in the very state which they promised each other would bo that of the North when secession had taken place, with the obvious prospect before Ihcm that ny relief c;w? come nntil the authority of the government is fairly established throughout the Union. Again, the financial success of the government of the United States presontrt a striking contrast to that of the rebel government. The rebels, on commencing the war against the government, issued a quantity of bends, which they called Confederate bonds, which were to bear S per cent interest and to be tenured by an export dntv on cotton. As wc stated at the lime these beads were issued, the security of the export duty was worthless?there being no possibility of shipping nuou BO fcliv ICUVJft lanitu, Thr S< :)!lifm people ncem to have taken the same view, a* they refused to take the flr.st small i^sue of $13,000,000 of bonds--, Since then the reV!s have oh aincd from various plr.ntf rp, under coercion of inob law, various contributions of cotton, rice, tobacco, coin and other produce, on t" *rrarity of which tlicy ivi'cd Treasury notrit needs no argument to prove tin TVurti. lessnesa of these note?.
