The imports of foreign dry goods at the port of New York for the week ending Mar 8, 1873, were of the specie value of $1,283,764, the amount marketed for the same period being $1,666,245. The Imports ofdrj goods last week were $1,721,428. THI FOREIGN MARKET. The only feature of novelty In the foreign market was a farther decline In consols in London, which went off *. a S-lfl this morning, and recovered only a trifle-say 1-ie-in the afternoon. The decline the past few days la the natural consequence of a higher discount rate at g TnE BANK OP ENGLAND, an influence which accounts for a further decline or * in our new Ave per cents, although the six per cents and the ten-forties havo remained steady, if not Arm. Erie shares have been heavy and * lower. The new French loan was strong and ad vanced to 4* per cent premium, although rentes in Paris were a shade lower at 54.60. MONET EASY. The money market was easy, but to some extent unsettled, the rate on call, which opened at 7 per cent, having fallen to 6 per cent early in the after noon and recovered later In the day to 7 per cent. The more active Inquiry toward three o'clock is explained by the previous delay of borrowers to up the,r accounts In their expectation or getting money at merely nominal rates if thev I^^HUntllnearthe C'08e- To? many happened to do the same thing, so that the DEMAND FOR MONET at the last moment gave the market into the hands of lenders, who stiffened their terms accordingly In mml' 8t?rm ,nterfere(1 transactions to mercantile paper, but the market retained its easy tendency, and prime names were negotiable ttla'rr T* dlbCOnnt- The foreign exchanges ZlZiTS* Vn8Wer t0 a m*re active demand for remittance by Saturday's mail, and the leading bankers advanced sterling * per cent, to ios* for sLxty-oay and 109* for sight bills, but business was at a concession of * a 3-ia per cent.

INCRBASB OP INSURANCE CAPITAL. The business of fire insurance la the State of New York is recovering rapidly from tho pros trating effects of the Chicago conflagration, not withstanding the intermediate drawback of the Boston calamity. Prom tho report of O. W. Chap man, the State Superintendent of Insurance, re cently made to tbe Legislature, we learn that between Jauuary 1, 1872 (the Chicago fire was in October, 1871, and the Boston fire in November, 1872), and April 1, 1873, there has been added to the insurance capital of fire and marine companies or ganized lu our own state $3,850,000, contributed by TWKLVK NEW COMPANIES. If to this t>e added the capital that has been raised to make up impairments the total amount oi new capital invested in the fire and marine In surance businesii in New York during the time specified was $8,054,110. The reduction In insur ance capital by companies of the same class and during the same urn. has been $2,550,000?the re sult of shiintage by losacs at Chicago or discontin uance of business. At the close of the year 1872 there were seventy-two fire, fire marine and ma rine Insurance companies of other States and coun tries doing business in this State, and although there had been many changes the total number was the same as at the close of the previous year. On the 1st or April, 1873, the total number of such companies had Increased to eighty-eight, the addi tional capital represented by their agcncies in tills State being about $18,500,000. STOCKS STKADY ANT) FIRM. The stock market was firm and singularly steady, the average fluctuation in the greater part of the list having been only % a % per cent. St, Paul varied only % per cent. The eztreme fluctuation was in Pacific Mall, which advanced from 53% to 56, closing at 55%, In addition to rumors of a struggle for control of the company at the coming election as the explanation or the rise It was said that a heavy "bear" operator in the stock had been taken dangerously ill and had sent orders to his brokers to close bis inter est. Panama jumped from 115% to 117%, and closed at a reaction to 118, the statement being made at the same time that the following members had retired (rom the direction, viz.Edwards Plorrepont, C. L. Hotch kiss, L. S, Stockwcll and Q. G. Ilaven, and that the new Board, of which A. B. Stock well remained president, was as follows:?W. B. Leonard, T. W. Park (of Bennington, Vermont), H. 11. Baxter, George H. Pullman, Georgo S. Scad, Alden B. Stock well, T. B. Musgrove, U. W. Gray, S. J. Uerrlott, J. M. Burke, A. Masterson, S. L. M. Barlow and F. \V. G. Bellows. The proposition to POOL TBE EARNINGS of the Northwestern and St. Paul roads, announced in the Qerald as having been under dlscusslo%a few months since, has led to an agreement by which the Northwestern Is to get 80 per cent and the St. Paul 40 per cent or the aggregate earnings, the arrangement to go into effect as soon as rati fied by the holders ol the preferred Northwestern and preferred St. Paul stock, and to continue seven years. At the close of tbe day a smart advance took place in New Jersey Central, which sold at 108% (as high as 107 being bid at one time, without bringing out any Btock), and in Delaware, Lack awanna and Western, which closed at 104%. The sudden rise is attributed to a rectification of the differences of the two boards of directors and the adoption of a harmonious plan of operations un der the consolidation agreement. The movement lu Western Union was stronger on the reports or the contemplated absorption or rival lines, and the shares left off firm at an advance tu 87%. n 1(111 EST AND LOWEST PRICES.
