PHIAL m COMMERCIJL. A FIRM STOCK MARKET. A Cheerful Vi6\v of the Situation. THE GOLD CLIQUE IN A MUDDLE. Kaiser William nnd Pres ident MacMuhou. MONEY EASY. Another Report Forthcoming from Pacific Mail. Wall Strekt, ? Monday, June 2?? P. M. ( On 'Change to-day cotton was quiet and steady for spot, white futures were In moderately fair de mand at a %c. improvement. Flour was dull. Wheat and cum were In demand but at decidedly tower prices. TDK FORKION MARKET. In consequence of the holiday abroad, this being Wblt-Monday, we have no London advices, save a press despatch to the London Times, from Berlin, which states that Germany Is dissatisfied with President MacUahon's address to the French Assembly and will not enter into regu lar diplomatic relations with his government until satisfied that France will adhere to the Treaty 01 Frankfort. This Is not a statement likely to affect the markets on either side of the Atlantic; first, because It is Improbable, and sec ondly because the financial world Is already aware that France is even now prepared to pay to the attermost farthing the last instalment of the in demnity dne on account or ttio war. The bank of France has not only offered to advance the amount, hnt the people themselves, by economical living; and honest Industry, have earned and saved enough to All the Treasury with more than Is sufficient to pay this public deot, Immense as it has been, and in another year will be piling up that which will give France a financial prestige and credit which, under the circumstances, may be written down as a marvel in the history 01 nations. Like other in cidental events that are seized upon in Wall street to secure an artificial value tills may be of use, when it becomes public property, to affect gold; but, so tar as we are at present advised, tlie rumor has been poured through an English sieve that will hot hold water. THE MONEY MARKET. The money market has been easy to borrowers on call at5a0per cent, prime mercantile paper ?elting readily at 7 a v% per oent. Foreign ex change Is strong, with a more active business, prime sterling being 108% lor prime bankers' sterling and 109% a 110 lor short sight. The following are the quotations as amended:? Sterling, sixty days' commercial, 108 a 108%; do., good to prime bankers', 108% a 108%; do., short sight, 109% a 110: Paris, sixty days, 6.30 a 6.25; do., short sight, 5.21% a 6.20; Prussian thalers, 71 % a 72; Antwerp, 6.27% a 5.22%; Switzerland, 6.26% a 6.21 %; Hamburg, 96% a 90; Amsterdam, 39% a 40%; Frankfort, 40% a 41%; Bremen, 95% a 96. The public debt statement lor May shows a de crease In the debt of $30,626,000. The receipts ironi customs to-day were $4os,ooo. The treasury balances in connection with the public debt statement are as tollows Currency $6,000,000 Coin 76,500,000 Certificates 30,600,000 Outstanding legal tenders 356,000,000 The beoks of the Treasury Department show that $240,000 or called 3 per cents are still outstanding. The Internal revenue receipts to-day were $660,000. It Is estimated that the receipts for the month of June will be $9,600,000. OOLD 117% A 117%. The same muddle exists in the gold market that has been recorded for several days. The clique have louud it uphill work to fight public sentiment, and prices instead of advancing liave, from one In fluence and another, either steadily held their own or receded, as was the case to-day. Every effort has been privately made which the season of the year warranted to create a spec llative leeling, and even the banks have been Invoked In taking the preliminary to lend their power to the monster combination. Somehow or other, however, the programme has met with a check, aud it IB now not wholly Improbable that the effort to make a squeeze will be abandoned. The action of Secretary Kichardsou in announcing his June policy naturally had its effect to weaken gold to-day, but there are other and deeper causes be yond this mere temporary incentive to a drop which arc likely to act as a barrier between the public and any crisis in specie. The following table will show the fluctuations in gold during the day:? 10 A. M 117% 12:50 P. M 117% }0A. M... 117% 117% 0:02 A. M 117% 1:2S P. M 117>i 10:06 A. M- 117% 1 :::a P. M 117% 11 A.

STOCKS STEADY AND FIRM. The stock market shows a cheerful nndertone. With the exception of Pacific Mall, about wlitch there Is 4 lingering doubt, fhr reasons that will be stated hereafter, the feeling concerning the future of securities is more hopeiul and buoyant than it has boen during the last or the preceding week. Indeed, a comparison or the quotations for several days will demonstrate that there Is a current of confidence at work, the resultant of which is a slow but steady appreciation of values. The move ment In New York central, for instance, is very decided, the price having advanced from 100# on Saturday to 102# to-day, the lowest price being 101#. but with the largest transactions at the higher figures. This Improvement la doubtless due to the enlargement of lacllltieB lor labor ami earn ings, now in progress. Lake Shore exhibits a similar Impulse, the advance to-day having been 1# Der cent. The stock opened at 81#, dropped far a moment to 91, then recovering sold at ui#, 91#, 91#, 91#, 92, 91#, 91#, but at the last board strengthened and closed at 92#. Western Union opeued at 86#, retired to 84#, but rebounded and remained firm to the end, with slight fluctuations between 86# and 86#, the highest point of the day being 86#. Ho :k Island took part in the general im provement and meved up to 110#, being 1# higher than the best price of Saturday. St. Paul was Arm between the extremes of 64# a 55#, improving with the later tone of the market. To. ledo and Wabash also advanced, opening at 68# and closing firm at 69 a 69#. Ohio and Mississippi sold at 41#, 41#, 41#, 41#, 42,41# and 41#, closing at the last named figure. Delaware, Lackawanna and W estern was steady at an average oi 106. C., C. and I. C. ranged irom 30# to 31#. Erie simply held its own at 63# a 63#. In Union Pacltlc there was considerable activity, but not suillcicnt to cause a larger vibration than about # per cent. The chlcl speculative feature or the Board con tinues to be Pacific Mail, its stock opening at 40#, dropping to 40, 39# to 39# a 39# before the call, reaching at the first board to 40, moving up a trac tion after noon, but eventually dropping to 39# a 39# a L9, ut which price it closed. Tue impression of tne street is that Pacific Mail is a good deal like an April day?lull of showers and sunshine. Just now storms are foreboded. People who know say that within a week a statement will be presented by the new Hoard of Directors that will cause the holuers of stock to lo^k about for a first class obituary notice, because it will be made to appear tkat there is a million or two of difference between actual lacts and mere suppositions. On the other liand?, the shrewder ones insist that the whole present plan Is to bear the market to the worst aud then open battery in regal style as the precursor of an olu-tlme battle. The Board of Directors met to-day, and among other things look Into consideration a letter addressed to them by a prominent banker aud two other gentlemen, requesting that a true statement or the affairs ol the company should be Issued lor the benefit ot the stockholder?a statement that would neither mislead the public, thwart the interests ol the company nor do injustice to truth. Am above In timated, it is understood that such a report is iorthcomlng, the accountants being already at work upon the all-important figures, and that it will be gloomy enough to make everybody "stand irom under" and say Wall street prayers.

Flour was dull aud lower, while wheat was decidedly lower, but fairly active at the decline. Pretty heavy sales of Spring wheat were made for shipment at decidedly lower prices, and the tend ency at the close was still in buyers' favor. Corn was also decidedly lower under free receipts, but the sales were pretty large at the re duced prices. Oats were [also lower?the market being depressed by the free receipt*. Whiskey took a turn and sold higher. Pork re mained dull and nominal, while other kinds of pro visions were inactive. Lard was quiet, but steady. Freights were about steady, though vessels for grain charter were easy. Cotton was quiet for spot, but in better demand and an *'c. per lb. better for futurt. Groceries, with the exception of su?ar, was quiet, but prices exhibited no cbanite. Petroleum was quiet and ensier. Natal stores were also easier. Cotton on lint spot was quiul, but steady.

[From the Albany Argus, June 2.] Tie aggregate amount ol taxes levied by the late Legislature exceeds that of last year (exclusive ol the deficiency tax) over two millions of dollars. To make the matter woise, the appropriation! largely exceed the taxes levied, and no provision was inade for the deficiency of $1,590,000 bequeathed by the Legislature ol 1872. Aside from the enoruoua increase in taxation, therefore, the Legislature* of 1872 and 1873 have lert an aggregate deficiency of three millions or thereabouts tor the Legislature of 1874 to meet. We recall the following Items in the various tax levies ot this ycai, and there may be others:? mw*. mak. Bounty Loan 2 Canal Awards )i (ieneral Kuud Ik Asvlums VIS Extraordinary Repair* 7-10 Floating Canal Debt.... >4 Mew Capitol >4 Academies 1-1* Total ?.? The aggregate tax last year (exclusive of the de ficiency taxi was 6.876 miliSL showing an increase the curreut year ol 1.076. If the Legislature bad made full provision for Its own authorized expen ditures and that or its predecessor the tax would have been at least 8)t mills. A deficiency tax of IX mills next year, therefore, is Inevitable, and U the Slate escapes with that it will be fortunate. THE SUICIDE MANIA IB JEE8ET.
