BaiTABK?.- Tho unsettled condition of '?___?*, both
financial and political, continuo to exert' a very depress
ing influoncoon every branch of trade; and although a
Tory groat stagnation -waa reaaonably expected, particu
larly during tho approaching summer, from the groat
political and social changea brought about by the war,
the general dullness has been much aggravated by the
i uncertain future of European affairs, and the moneyed I
dtiMtors which have taken place in Great Britain. Ex- j
oept auch trafilo ta occurs from tho sale of articles of
prime necessity, as Corn and Bacon, business here da*
ring the past week has been almost suspended. The
. late rite in Cotton and Gold caused a speculative demand
for many articles ; but a? the pr?tent appearance of the
market would indicate a decline in these groat staples
Of trade, the activity caused thereby baa already to a
great extent oeaaed. The present contest between Liv
erpool and N*w York, aa to which market shall regulate
the price of Cotton, ia watched with eagor anxiety, aa
the struggle ia one of great moment to the South. The
Greenback currency of this country, based upon the
Credit of the Government, ia a source of much strength
in such a contest, ana enables the Northam holders o'
Cotton to make a stubborn fight for the mastery.
COTTON.-Dm In? most of the past week the Cotton
market baa bo? n characteri-ed by great dullness and a
? constant tendency to decline. Holders here, however,
Bhow considerable firmness, and it ia generally thought
that when tho news of the disaster, to the ctop and-gen -
oral had stands hare sufficient time to operate on the
English market, that it will caase an Improved feeling
there, and factors who are influenced by this opinion
rtpi only ?eil when urgently pressed.
On Friday, May 36, there waa an active demand for
the staple at improved ratea, 250 bales being disposed
?of, and Strict Middling Cotton having sold during the
day at 40- Mt ft. Oo Batorday the news from New York
of a decline in gold, and the belief; in conseqnenoe,
that the market had reached ita maximum,Induced buy
era generally to withdraw and await farther accounts.
-On Monday aome 60 balea were sold at ? decline of lo ft
**.. on the batter gradea, and on Tuesday aome 150 balea
wore disposed of, the transactions establishing the de.
olino of the day before of lo. V ft. on the better and
2c. V ft. on the lower gradea; Strict Middling being
quoted at 39o. and Middling at 36 to 38c V ft. On
Wednesday the market waa almost at a stand, only 10
bales having been sold; Btriot Middling Cotton drop
ping to 38c. Yesterday the market was at a ata?d, buy'
?an having withdrawn from the market. We omit quo
SEA. IfiL-uND CoTtOH.-There baa been no receipts of
till* quality of Cotton daring the past week, and there
baa been no sales. The market continues nominal.
