Late on Saturday evening, after banking hours, Londou advices were received to tho effect thut the Bank of England had lost on balances the lurther sum of ?189,000. To-day another despatch came to hand stating that the additional sum of C$8,000 had likewise beon withdrawn. These Inci dents, however, did not materially airect the for. clgn market, consols being quoted at 93J?> Erie at 48X a 4&>*. the closing price, while the new French loau advanced to 3 per ceut premium. American securities were duir anil heavy. The Issues of 1867 commanded 93*, a 93K, aud tho new fives 88%; ten forties declined %, aud were held at 88%. No dis turbance on the English side Is reported, and It Is reasonable to suppose that the fluctuations marked have simply been obedient to the condition of affairs ?a England recorded 011 Saturday. TUB MONEY MARKET. Money on call was active in the early hours of (business, and lenders succeeded In getting 7 per cent, the rate standing 6 a 7 per cent. Subse quently, when accounts had been generally made up, the rate declined in open market to 5 per cent. Prime commercial paper found ready sale 11 t to 9 per cent dlscouut. The banks vtlll continue to seek employment for their lurplus, and purchased liberally of good Mercantile securities. Foreign exchange re mained as on Saturday, although some what weaker, concessions in actual business aelng made at percent. This is only a natural reaction after the recent advance in exchange, which latter fact, coupled with the advance in jold, made a prompt market for large quantities of domestic produce, aud led to the creation of a !resh supply of commercial bills. The amount of egal tenders outstanding to-day was $356,478,COO, jeing a decrease of $22,000 since last report. The internal revenuo receipts were $700,000. The Treasury balances at the close of business to-day were Currency $5,000,000 74,000,000 Certificates 27,oco,ooo GOLD STEAOY?117% a 118%. The gold room showed none of the symptoms which were anticipated by many when the market tlosed on Saturday. It was then thought tliat to lay would reveal cither a combination formed to ippreclate the value or develop the necessity for its early shipment. Neither of these contingencies, thus far, has presented itself. In fact gold Is weaker, and sympathizes with the similar weak ness that has already been recorded with relcrence | to exchange. This result is perhaps partially due to reports from abroad that the Continental listurbances, so far as they might affect AmeYlcan values, have been greatly exaggerated. Encourage ment was derived from the Improvement In our bonds: Irom the steadiness of 1U0 London market; from the tone of contldenco reported by the latest English despatches; from the assurance that no great Inequality existed between the imports and exports of the country; and, finally, from the very well considered probability that at the next weekfy meeting of the Board of Directors of the Bank of England the present rate of discount will be re duced. The fact seems to oe generally accepted that the disturbance on the Vienna Bourse has not been of sufficient Importance to ma terially affect the money centres of the world. It merely has Buperlnducjd a caution and contraction whlcn, In obedience to the law af finance, has extended to tho extremes of mone tary luflncnce. The effort, therefore, of the "bullB" or the market to take advantage of this event ?r of any or Its suppositious results has bo far proved abortive, and we have a gold market not too severely epeculatlvo in its tendencies to 3uggo? tho possibility wl an immedlato crisis.

Trade circles were very quiet to-dny as a general thin*, and Imslnusa was light both on and oir 'Cnange. The extreme firmness of freight* and the higher rates ol vessels for charter as compared with a week ago tended to greatly restrict the export movement In grain, and rates for next mouth being even higher than those now current, buyers for forward delivery were more cautious. Floor was quiet but steady, lines or extra shipping being held particularly Arm. Wheat was quiet,' owing to the continued scarcity of prime samples, tiie high rates of freight and the Indispo sition of sellers to grant any concession irom tiie rates recently current lor lots to arrive. On the spot prices were lower. Corn was still heavy under a moderate Inquiry, nnd comparatively free receipts of old, some of which was green and pressed for saK*. at lower prices. Prime old was held pretty firm, but the steady decllno or new brings o'.d with it, Oats were In demand and firmer. Whiskey was also Armor, with a fair inquiry. Pork and lard were dull and prices were decidedly in buyers' favor, particularly lor lard. Freights wero very firm, and extremo ralos were demanded. Groceries were quiet, but, with the exccptlou of n weak markot for raw sugar, prices were firm. Naval stores wero neg lected, and prices were, to a treat extent, nominal. Pe troleum attracted but little atteution, yet prices were without noticeable change. Cottok.?Spot cotton was neglected nnd nominal, with 1 a downward tondcncy, at the quotations annexed.

Departure of a Special Commissioner to Report Upon the Public Feeling In tiie Islands. [From the Alta California, May 12.] Our special correspondent In Washington, under date of Way 4, sends us very important news, which will be of great interest to the Pacific Const. He lnioriua us in advance or all other news heretofore published that Colonel A. H. Stetuberger, oi Wash ington, has been sent out by our government to feel the Sandwich islands pulse on the subject of annexation to tne United states. Colonel stein burger, the Commissioner appointed for this pur pose, arrived in tills city on the 4th mat., and is now at the Grand Hotel. His purpose in coming to this coast has been kept a profound secret thus lar. It is not yet reported when he tvlil leave for tlie Islands. The following is the letter sent us by our corre spondent. :? The question of th? pnnexatlon of the Sandwich Island to the unTteu Stales* Ts being seriously- con sidered in Washington. A row ?go it Wf? rumored in diplomatic circles that a sftebl&l com missioner would bft sent out to feel the Sandwlcn I?'un<l pulse and to report on tne practicability of the sCiiMile, as well as the general disposition of the people most interested iu the matter. This rumor bad not assumed definite character at that time aud was not generally credited. Now it is known?though the public have not been apprised oi the fact?that the plan has been consummated. Colonel A. B. Steinberger, of this city, who has long enjoyed the confidence of President Orant, has been appointed to perform this mission and has already departed for the Pacific coast. It is contemplatod to have the matter of annexa tion looked into and reported upon in a manner somewhat similar to that adopted in the prelimi nary negotiations in SL DOmlngO. There are not, however, as many ob|ect.lons made to this policy as were urged against the St. Domlugo scheme, and an etlort is not likely to stir up as much opposli Ion. The restrictionists and the enemies of the adminis tration will undoubtedly raise a howl about it; but, li the people of the Sandwich Islands are ripe for the movement, and Colonel Steinberger's report is favorable, we may expect that tho President will recommend annexation in his next message. Full authority is given to the Commissioner to use for this mission any war vessel on the Pacitlc coast which may be available and suitable for the purpose. His instructions are not made public, but yoty correspondent has ascertained that he is authorized to make investigations and report on the results of Ills work. He ft a man of bright, kneen intelligence, an 1 possesses a bright eye that sees everything. He Is well suited to tho work before hint, and will no doubt create a favorable impression wherever he goes. Ills judgment will Insure tiie production of a report that will be con sidered reliable and worthy of careful attention. His selection will give general satisfaction. Tho popular policy seems to be generally in fa vor of this movement. Concerning the logic of the re^trlctionlsts the Washington cnrvntcle says:? The public should note the tact that the most un compromising opponents of the annexation of St. Domingo in the recent assaults upon President Graut are Just now zealous advocates of the pro posed Absorption by the linlted states of "the little Kingdom of Hawaii." Cnn this be explained on any principle of political cconomy with which the Fathers of the Republic were famlllarf St. Do mingo lies at our door, the Sandwich Islands moro t iiau half way across the Pacific. If the deionce of tiie loruar. la com el a foreign w?r, would he fllf fleult it wool* tuh be mere so than Ulando sltaased many thousand miles from oar Bhores. The pro ductions of tbe latter, especially desirable to tbe people of the united Stated, are far more abund ant In tbe former. If this class of advocates for the annexation of the Kingdom 01 Hawaii are not careful tuey will be caught in ttie meshes ol their own logic, and prove by their zeal in this case that their opposition to toe other was inspired by uo higher motive tliau hate for an administration which they could net control. LITERARY CHIT-CHAT. > . thb rev. J. s. c. Abbott has expended the latest efforts of his historical whitewash brush upon the character of De Soto. Dodd A Mead pub lish the book, wbioh makes out this crucl, ambi tious, selfish and corrupt Spaniard to be a brilliant hero, slightly touched with Insanity. Says mb. hambbton, In his "Intellectual Lire," "A language cannot be thoroughly learned by an adult without five years' residence tn the country where it is spoken, and without habits ol close ob servation a residence or twenty yeare is insuffi cient." This is not encouraging, but it is the truth. Happily a knowledge which rails rar short or mastery mar be or practical nse In the common affairs or life, and may even afford some initiation Into foreign literature. Tub Fbengii historian, Thierry, who died last month, published his first work fifty yoars ago, and the proolk of his last were brought to him on his death bed. It was an article in the Uevue aes Deux Monaes. Thb handwriting of the late Chief Justice Chase was very peculiar. Be wrote a singularly small and almost feminine hand, which, however, he turned off with great rapidity and nervous force. Bis private letters (which were more numerous than those or almost any other public man who filled stations so eminent) were models of terse and dear English style. Thb late Saint-maro Girardin was not by any means of the most brilliant school of French Jour nalists. His style was pedantic, and he could not compete with Pr<3vost-Paridol's nimble satins, or with Lemolnne's easy common sense, or. with Weiss' paradoxical, but lively pen. Wuo wrote "'Betsey and I Are Out," is as vexed a question as the authorship ol " Rock Ue to Sleep, Mother," or "Be/iutlful Snow" was a lew years ago. The latter was claimed with equal posltivenoss by a lady, Mrs. Akers, and by J. W. Watson, who incorporated it in liis collected poems. And now comes another lady writer, Mrs. N. S. Emerson, and claims the ballad "Betsey and I Are Out," so widely published by Will M. Carle ton.as hU in Harper's and in book form, as her property, written in 1869, and loaned In MS. copies to friends. She charges Mr. Carieton .with a "literary piracy" and with printing her poem as his own in a "mutilated and reeb'.e form." And so the battle of the books goes on, and the ballad, which has no poetic merit, but Is marked by a certain rudo iorce and simplicity, is multiplied by rival publishers, each advertising his wares as genuine. Kate Field will gather her occasional papers Into a volume under the indefinite title of "Hap Hazard." Those interminable hovels by* Richardson. "Pamela," "Clarissa Harlowe" and "Sir Charles Grandison," ?tre to be reprinted in London in cheap editions. It Is doubtful ir the modern world will find time or patience to read them. We should as soon think of reviving "Parthenlssa" or Sydney's "Arcadia." Japanese literature is not abundant. Twenty four books were published in Japan last year, of which nearly all were translations. With one ex ception they relate to what were, till lately, foreign subjects. Seven were translations of foreign ele. mentary work3 on chemistry aud physics, loar on geography, two on American history aud t'arce on civil law. Sir W. Fairbairn, whose works on iron sliip buildlng and tiie strength of materials are authori ties, sayc that "ir you double the length o; a ship you weaken her just 9De-half. And the evil does not Stop here, because if the cargo capacity be enlarged in the same proportion, and used, the ship's strength is diminished four times. What are called 'clipper ships' are not safe." Mr. Thorold Rogers, whose books on political economy and "History of Agriculture and Prices" are well known, will stand lor Parliament in the liberal Interest. Bombay contributes to the Vtenna Exhibition a complete set of all the .native newspapers printed in that country?thirty-six in number. k Those charming writers, MM. Erckmann and Chatrian, have published another of those tranquil and beautiful stories of real life for which they are famous, under the title of "Les Deux Frfcrcs." YACHTING NOTES.
