2 FINANCIAL AND QOMMERCIAL. Friday, Sept. 20?6 P. M. The money market is very dull again. There if oo demand for money, either from the brokers 01 from the merchant?; tho rate for call loans la frilling everywhere to 5 per cent. Prime paper, with ?ixty days or thereabouts to run, Bella at C per ccnt, but most people who have money to invest in this way put it into Treasury notes. Foreign exchange is Bteady, but there is very 'ittle doing. Tho bankers are not yet prepared to put down thoir rates; they are asking 109 for sterling and 5.25 a 5.27% for francs, ana are Duytng at 108% a 108% for sterling and 5.30 for franca, rhe recent advance in breadatufl's is said to 'iave prevented tlio execution of heavy orders for wheat and flour for French account, and thus a large amount of exchange is withheld from the market; while, on the other hand, the recent improvement In business is enabling many importers to remit something to the other side. These influences, Uko the flurry created by the remittance of Southern moneys to Europe, aro of course temporary, and muat soon cease tc operate. The course of exchange depends up or the relative proportion borne to each other by imports and exports. When our imports increase, exchange rises; when they declino, it falls. This yoar our imports fall short of those of the same period of last year by oighty millions of dollars, and our exports exceed those of the same period of last year by $27,000,000. During the month of August our imports at this port fell Bhort of our exports by one million dollars. Under these circumstances qo importance can b? attached to temporary pasms in the foreign exchange market, as it is obvious that ou brord general grounds the exchange must rule in our favor. Within the pas1 twelvemonth wo havo received from California and from Europe over eighty millions of dollars in gold, and instead of losing, as usuai, three to foui millions a month by export, have retained the who'.e. We are therefore In a condition to stand the heaviest drain ever known, for fully a year, without reducing our stock of specie as low as it was a year ago, whea it was notoriously abundant. But, as we said, the condition of our export and our import trade forbid the possibility of specie shipments at present or for a long time to come. The stock market was moderately active to-day; prices were irregular. Government securities were in demand at an advance of % per ceutfor the new ?ixes and % for the 0 per cent Treasury notes. Tor the latter there was quite an active inquiry, both in the street and at the board. State stocks were generally steady, except Missouris, which declined %. Among the speculative shares New York Central fell %, Galena %, Toledo Rock Island % and Pacific Mail 1 per cent. Other description were steady. After the board the market stiffened un. mid better Drices worn obtained which las-ted till the closc of bnsincss. The market at the close was steady, and the following were the last quotations:?United 8tate9 6's, registered, 1881, 90% a %; do. 6's, 1881, coupon, 90% a %; do. 5's, 1874, 80% a %; Indiana 5's, 77 a 79; Virginia 6'?, 51% a 52; Tennessee C's, 42% a 43; North Carolina C'a, 61 a C2; Missouri C's, 43% a %; Pacific Mail, 83% a %; New York Central, 73% a %; Erie, 2G a %; do. preferred, 46 a 47; Hudson River, 33% a %; Harlem, 10% a %; do. preferred, 25 a %; Reading, 35 a %; Michigan Central, 42 a %; Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana, 13% a 14; do. guaranteed, 30%* 31; Panama, 109% a 110;' Illinois Central, G5% a?(3; Galena and Chicago, s^; Cleveland atxlToledo, 29% a 30; Chicago and Rock Islazi(kf41% n "i, ' go, Burlington and Quincy, 61% a C2; Delaware, lAckawana and Wostern, 07 a OS: Milwaukee and Prairie du Chien, 17% a 18%; Illinois Central bonds, 7's, 92 a 93. The Sub-Treasury continues to receive a large vim daily from popular subscriptions to the national loan, though, as wasto .be expected, the opeuing of agencies throughout the country deprives it of a great portion of its business. Mr. Morris Ketohutn opens his agenry to-morr. w, aud will doubtless do a lis . The .Sub-Trcanury paid over to the bai.ks to-day $352,000 or account of pojuflnr subscriptions to the loan. The following was the business of the Sub-Treasury to day:? KocoIpU $453.."90 0( ?(iistoms 8,001) OC ?Treasury notes 410.000 ot Payments 810.509 21 Balance 15,913,001 81 A " Bank Officer" of this city has addressed a printed letter to Mr. Chase against the further issue of demand notes. The arguments he uses arc that such issues infallibly lead to expansion and speculation; that tlitsy rue uncontrollable and maj r>nm? back unon the Treasurv for redemntion whet jt is least convenient to redeem tlrem; and thai they interfere with the loan system which is now working so satisfactorily. All this may contair some modicum of truth and yet amount to nothing As the case stands, the loyal people of the Norl.1 have been using in their daily business about $150, 000,000 of bank notes of various kinds. Of thes< about $30,000,000?beinfr the issue of Western bank secured by Southern State stocks, and of Sontheri banks?have gone out of existence. Of th< remainder more than nine teen-twentieths enjo; only a local circulation, are at a discount a has tired miles from the point where they are issued tire not uniformly worth their face, and are ever day the cause of heavy losses through the misrnan -agement or roguery of bank managers, the carc lessness of bank auditors, and the address of conn terfeiters. The question now is whether it woul not be wise and safe to seplaee all this hcterog< aeons paper currency by government notes, r< deemable on demand at the various Sub-Treasurw and depositories and at par everywhere. And th further question is whether it would not bo win and economical to the government to. boi row a part of the money required for th war by issuing demand notes bearing no inti rest. How the people feel on the subject is see in the eagerness with which the demand notes at absorbed wherever they appear. Nor is it vei likely?the "Bank Officer" to the contrary no withstanding?that a reverse in the field woul bring these notes in for redemption in any larji amounts. Wall street bankers and speculatoi operate on BuU run panics, in order to make a pro! of one or two per cent; but the people at large knoi if so improbable an event occurred as a secor defeat of our armies, that the purpose of the m tion would only be the more resolute in cons quence, and its resources only the more freely c listed in the struggle. "A Bank Officer," it strik us, does not do justice to the patriotism the people. That an issue of 1100,000,000 of d mand notes would stimulate trade and can general expansion is very true: but in the fit /.lace the issue of 7 3-10 per cent notes is an e. pansion just as obviously as the issue of demai m notes would be, and, secondly, why should an e: nanainn Kao/xl nn fliA nro/lit r%f IVo a % vwwu v- ?v vivuiv vl ?UV gUICI U&Ul'Ilb I feared? Expansions are formidable only wlien th< rest on a fictitious basis, which insures a collnp. sooner or later; unlets "a Bank Officer" forese that goyorament is not going to pay its notes, it difficult to understand his alarm at the general i viral of trade which their issue is beginning cause. As to their interfering with tho 7 3-10 not* there is no ground for the apprehensions express by "a Bank Officer." Demand notes a not a loan, but a currency. Experien allows already that they will not bo sent for redemption, and that government w not be obliged to keep any undue amou nf gold on hand to redeem them, point of fact they will operate as a substitu for coin throughout large sections of the countr an'! will t?-nd to assist the bonks ef the great citi V.y driving the gold to the financial centres whe it Li mui For our part we cvafess that we si ..... ,.vv.... yip*... 4# "k. / ^ , NE"V ii? objection to the issue of say 1100,000,000 of demnnd notes; and such an issue would undoubtedly prove a great boon "to tbc people by i driviug an equal amount of doubtful and deprc cioted bank notes out of circulation, and would > save the government at lea3t $7,000,000 per annum i 'u interest. In thus dissenting fronf the views of " a llank Officer," we will recommend the writer, i should he again tender advice to Mr. Chase, uot to start with the assumption that the Secretary CAmo here aa a mendicant, in August last, and that the New York banks relieved his necessities out of pure patriotism and liberality, and are hence entitled to lecture him. No one questions the patriotism of the balk of the gontlemen i who, in August last, represented the banks of New York in conference with Mr. Chafe; but it is due to truth to state that, in subscribing to the national loan, they wore actuated as much by a desire to protect their own assets and earn interest on their canita.1 aa bv anv other motive. i Persons interested in railway property will be [ glad to hear that the contest between the Erie and the Central is likely to be adjusted. The foli lowing paragraph from the Rochester Union shows ! that the work of putting up prices has begun:? The railroad and forwarding linos have decided to advauco freights five cents on a barrel of Hour to New York. Tho Control Railroad charges forty-live cauls; tho transportation linos forty cents by canal. Freight is abundant by both rail and boats, and is llksly to continue so to the end of the season. The boatmen hmve suffered somewhat by do'ay, and the Slate baa taken by far tho largest part thoy got for tolls, so that a small margin is left for them. We understand that the banks have about $600,000 more coin on hand now than they had a 1 week ago, though during the week some $7,000,000 have been paid by them into the Sub-Treasury, > and about $2,000,000 by the public. We have received the following card:? > An oxtra of a Dank Note Reporter announces that "the .iovorley Bank is thrown out in Wall street." Tho Be vorley llar.k always lias, still does, and will continue to 1 redeem its uotes in gold at par. on presentation at the bunk. Tho notes likewise huvo been and will contlnuo to bo redeemed by the Atlantic Dank in New York, for ac' count of the Beverley liank, in sealed packages of $500 1 and upwards, at one quarter of one por cent discount; also by Samuol Hallntt & Co., redemption ng >r.ts of tho bank, at tholr office, No. 58 beaver street, New York, in ; whatever amounts presented, at tho same rnte.
