if any increase in offerings of foreign bills to-day, bs

extent to-day, and prices of the principal securi $:

the close of business, as may be readily inferred n

INTERaST AND UsltRY.-On the same authority
we quote as follows: State interest and usory
laws should he altered so as to harmonize wits
the laws ci (Congress gov-rning the national
The national banks are in fact privileged to
take any rate of interest, but if they take a per
centage greater than the legal rate of the State
where the bank is located, then the party paying
usury can recover back the entire interest paid.
The tainted obligation is not impaired, nor is
there any punishment for usury other than the
liability to pay back the interest taken, and this
liability must be enforced within two years from
the time of the transaction.
Not one in a thousand payers of usury will ever
make a claim under the national usury clause of
the act of Congress. Hence we say that the n -
r ttonal banks can take almost any amount of rea
sonable usury with impunity.
The easiest way to ride out a financial storm is
to work the money market on a sliding scale of
interest, l:ke the Bank of England. Is not this
subject worthy of the attention of the couventiin
at Albany ?

Two gentlemen of this city were this day over on
the Wisconsin tide of the river, visiting a stone
Squarry owned by thern. At the foot of the bOld
bluff, whereon their quarry is situated, is a boiling
spring of great exceillence which, of course, they
also visited. and from which an ancient lIndian
trail or path leads to Castle Rock, near the river
above. Just at the right of this trail, and directly
is in front of their quarry, their attention wasdrawn
Sto a rock of oval shape, four feet in diameter,
" deeply imbedoed and surmounted by a closely
fittitg cap of exactly its size, and about :x
4, incLes thick. Being satisfied that the cap was
fitted and placed there by human hands, they pro
- cured levers at considerable trouble and removed
it. In a small cavity of the rock were coins of
European and Central American countries, whkch
they believe were placed there by traders or
Jesuit priests mnany years ago. They do not in
tend to give imposters any advantage in proving
their claims to them, therefore exhibit only a few
specimens. The courious can see the rock sad gap
by journeying across the river, and several parties
have already done so. No persons will be allowed
to deface the said rock or cap*stone, as they can
very well adord to remove them in their present
condition to some public place in this city, and
as will do so as soon as the frost is out of the ground.
A* Altogether, this is the most curionus ad onex
g plarned discovery that has ever occurred in this
victnlty.-[Winona ( Minn.) Republican.

THi WOOL TR~na.--We are indebted to the N.
Yr . Commercial Bulletin for the following extract
concerning the wool trade:
a, The trade in foreign wool has been light for the
past six months. The quantity imported was a
h trifle larger than durio the corresponding time in
19(;7, but the value is Iess. This is accounted for
0 partially by the heavy per centsage carpet wools
torm of the quantity brought here, and partially
t by the decrease in value in the conuntries where
the wool is grown. Our market has been well
f supplied witn domestic wools, including those
brought from California and Texas, which have
f ranged so much lower in price than the high
. grades foreign wool to nearly stop their use. For
some purposes foreign wools are quite essential,
. maintaininog a constant demand for small lots.
a Carpet and blanket wocle continue to meet with
e buyers. There has been a good demand for Can
I ads combing wool, inducing the importation of
g quite liberal quantitles. The reshipments of
ey foreign wool have been small In price there has
an been no decided change. Manufacturers will
er purchase when compelled, and then must meet
ly the holders' view': hut holders have also experi
en enced as ifch d.fficulty when they attempted to

Snoa TIME AND DULL n. Tal.--The short time,
at Manchester, announced by cable as deter
mined upon some weeks since, appears by the
arrivals of the mails this week to have been at
least premature. Foreign adviceestll claim, how
ever, that manufacturing is carried on at a lose,
but as consumption In kept up pretty freely, con
fidece in the f nutre of cotton is rather on the
increase here. We showed two weeks since that
the worald's supply this year, even If it all goes to
market freely is only very little in excee of laste
year. With, then. a supply i no event excussive,
and with the present short stoeks and the dipo
stion to hold back the staple, developed not only
in this country but in India, there can be no immer
diate prospect of a decline except there be a de
cided falling of In he conumptlon. In the Uni.
ted States there certainly is no prospect of short
time among the manufacturers; the only limit to
their sale at present is their capacity to mnu
facture and their willingness to sell. And no-on
here will now believe in short time in Europe until
it Is seen in its results. The time war when a dis.
patch from Manchester of dull trade meant some
thing, and had Its influence on our market; but it
will require something more substantial now to
affect pricer bhere.

Nre.rs Chicago.-The heavy cost of shipping
grain and other produce to Chicago from Iowa,
Wisconsin, Minnesota, sod most of the grain
cities of even Illinois, and of trauhipping the same
from Chiago to the East, has compelled the
farmers of those State, and of the Northwest
generally, to turn their attention to New Orleani,
which city s accessible to moat of them by water,
with little or no railroading to reach shipping
points on the Misassippi and its various tributa
nies. Chicagos in great danger of losing her
prestig as the greatest grain market in the coun
try, unless her citizens soon devise mean to
cheapen freights between the West and theEfast.
The freight on a bushel of grain from Chicago
to iufialo is 10 cents ; from BfIlo to New rok
18 cents ; cost of handling it at Chicago 6 cents ;
total 34 cents. From Cairo (on the Ohio river,
Southern Illinois) to New Orleans the freight is 11I
cents ; total 12 eats ; difference 12 cents per
bushel To Uaverpool the difference between
the freigbton a bushel of grain from Cairo and
from Chicago is estimated at about 15 cents in
favor of Caifro.
These figures are mportant to consumers in the
7 city, and in the East generally. The twenty-two
cents per bushel difference ia freight in favor of
r New Orleans would far more than pay for its
troansportation from that cty to this and New
York, qand the difference would be so much in the
pocket of the Eastern consumer.
Owing to the high freights Eastward via Chi

improve the Internal navigation of their respect.

The Boston Shipping List reviews the market
for domestics for the year 186M as follows:
Trade In cotton goods shows a decided impro'e
meat on last year, and manufacturers, on the
we, ae doe n a proftable and remunerative
business. The bulk of the supplies of raw ma
Sterial consumed were purchased early in the year
at low prices, and, although there has been very
little excitement or speculation se far as g,,odk
it are concerned, the productions of our mills hive
met with a steady demand for consumptlon' at
Ssatisfactory prices. The export trade does ,not
show so large an ncrease uas might reasonahly be
ir expected, and it will be somle years befre'the
a quantity exported in 1861 is reached, but hMme
g consumption is raplily increasing and the q, ao
d tity of raw material consumed has been larger
ths in any previous year, not excepting 11460,

37,83 packages the past year.
