The total exports of domestic merchandise from Hew York to foreign ports lor the week ending May?, and since the beginning of the year, com pare as follows :? 1871. 1872. 1873. Par the week $3,910,936 $4,7.0,733 $7.54S,079 Previously reported 77,328,008 68,045,too 87,123,146 Since January l..$8l.23:t,444 $72,83<;,423 $04,641,825 TUB UOVEKNMKNT PURCHASE OF BONDS. rfce proposals to sell flve-twenties to the govern ment were twelve in number, the amount ten iered being $1,351,400, at prices ranging (ex cou pon) from 116.49 to 116.49. The half million was ?btained at 110.49 a 116.92. To-morrow the gov ernment will sell 1,500,000 gold. THE KOKtilliN MARKET. The chief item in the cabio report is the an nouncement that the directors of tlie Hank of England saw fit, in a special session this noon, to raise the minimum of tho discount rate to 4* per cent, as against 4 per cent, the immediately pre vious rate. The effect iu Loudon was to cause a DEPRESSION IN CONSOL3 ?t * per cent, but otherwise the market was Steady. Our bonds were firm throughout the day. In fact the >67's, which wcVe a trine lower before the alteration of the bank rate, recovered and closed strong. Erie siiares were * a * lower. The new French loan was heavy and declined to 4 per cent premium, while rentes in I'aris were about ?teady. MONEY EASY. The money market was easy, and, perhaps, rather Ri?re so than during the earlier days oi the week, tae rate on call ranging from 7 dowu to 5 per cent and ?iesingate per cent. The heller in its continued case has induced a further and active inquiry for mercantile paper, which, to use a hardly too strong expression, Is quite the rage with INVESTORS leeking to use their lunds lor the next sixty days !? six months. It may seem strange that so much eapitai should so suddenly seek this channel of ln restment when there are so many divi.lcnd-paying ?tocks and interest-bearing railroad bonds of un toubted reliability capable of affording nearly as large returns. The explanation is that tho fenycr of the stock or bond runs the risk of a de preciation or the principal in the Interval to the time when he wants his money apaiu, while MERCANTILE PAPER Is certain to be redeemed at par. The security of the railroad bond lor a long Investment is not doubted. But the buyer who wants to sell it out at the end of three or six months may be com pelled to take one, two or even Ave per cent less than he gave for It?a depreciation wh cli would offset the interest earned in tlio meantime. But the merchant's note, amply endorsed, and bought at 7 a 10 per cent discount, Is, in the ordinary course of human events, sure or being taken up at par at the time of maturity. The outstanding extra greenoacks have been reduced $154,000 since feiterday. DECLINE IN FOREIGN EXCHANGE. One of the remarkable incidents of the day was the decline in foreign exchange, notwithstanding the action of tho Bank of England, at least as far U sterling.and francs were concerued, the Conti nental rates Delng Urm. The feadlng drawers low ered sight sterling * per cent and slxty ?ay bills * per cent, widening the differ ence between tho two classes or bills to one per cent. The reduction is due to the abundance o f commercial bills drawn against the heavy produce exports of the past week. The following are tho Quotations as revised:?Sterling, sixty days, com mercial, 107* a 108*; do., good to prime bankers', 108* a 108*; do., short sight, 109* a 109*; Paris, lixty days, 5.31 * a 5.25*; do., short sight, 6.21 * a 6.20*; Prussian thalers, 71* a 71*; Antwerp, l.3? a 5.26; Switzerland, 6.30 a 5.26; Hamburg, M* a 95*; Amsterdam, 39* a 40*; Praukfort, 10* a 41*; Bremen, 94* a 95*. GOLD HIOnKR?117* A 117*. The gold maruct opened only steady, and the Irst sales were at a decline from 117* to 117*. The action of the Bank of England being an nounced soon alter there was a rally and rise to 117*, the comparatively small advance being due to the simultaneous weakness of foreign exchange and to the fact, furthermore, that the raising of the Bank of England rate not only had been dis counted, but was regarded as precautionary, in view ?r the action of the Continental banks, rather than an immediately necessary expedient. Tho course of the market is shown in tho table w A. M 117* 1 p. M mv 10106 A. M 117* 1:06 P. M. .{ft 10:22 A. M 117* 2 P. M."..... 11 a. m 117* 3 p. m...77& 4 P.

TUB LAKE SHORE RAILROAD. Copies of the aunual report of the Lake Shore Itailroad Company were presented to the Stock Exchange to-day at the same time that the otllcial document was given to the stockholders' meeting at Cleveland, Ohio. The following is a summary lor the results lor the year ending December 31,1872:? Cross earnings. From freight $12,613,490 From passengers 4,163,614 From all other sources 814,016 Total $17,591,629 Expenses and laxes, 67 per cunt $11,839,625 Net earnings $6,762,104 Interest on lunded debt, leases, &c. 2,039,?03 Dividends, ten per ceut. on gnaranceed, and 8 per cent, on common stock, and installment oi scrip 3,619,446 Total $5,559,249 Surplus lor the year 192.855 The facts contained in the above statement ex plain the depression of the stock during the past Winter and Spring. It is easy to sec that with a surplus of less than $200,000 at the end of 1872, the CHANCES OF DIVIDENDS In 1873 are materially lessened by the increase meantime of the capital stock to the <cxtcnt of at least ten millions and an addition of $6,000,000 to the bonded debt. In other words, the additional demand upon the company for the current year is 17 per cent upon $0,000,000 (7 per cent Interest and 10 per cent sinking fond) and 8 per cent upon $10,000,000, making an aggregate of $1,820,000. Now, as the operating expenses last year were 67 per ceut, the earnings this year must increase nearly $6,000,000 to allow of the payment of all the company's obligations and the maintenance of 8 per cent dividends upon the capital stock. 8TOCES QUIET AND IRREGULAR. The stock market was quiet and the course of prices irregular. Lake Shore was steady, iiotwltli* standing the unfavorable nature of the annual re port, its fluctuation being confined within the nar row margin of % per cent. Erie, l'aclllc Mall, Union l'aclfic and Central were also steady. The stronger features wero Chios, St. Paul, C., C. and 1. C. and, toward the close, Wabash. At the opening Rook Island was Btrong and advanced to 111%, but re ceded to 110%. Western Union was the weak spot of the list and declined about % per cent. HIGHEST AND LOWEST PHICE8.
