fFrom the New York Tleruld Oct 27.
The stock market was in a state
bordering on panic oil yesterday, and
Erie suffered a further decline 3r
while other stocks began to show the
effect of the demoralization which Is
rapidly spreading among the bull
ranks. Tne fact is that prices are so
far above the range ofreal values that
they are liable to a heavy fall In any
event, but just now they have to con
tend with very severe monetary
stringency, which, In the opinion of
bank officers, Is more likely to In
crensothan to diminish during thc
next few days at least. The panic in
Erie continues, nowever, to be the ab
sorbing feature of the market and
the President of the Erie Company
officially Informed a committee of tho
Stock Exchange yesterday that five
millions of new stock have Just been
issued, and that five million more are
liablo to be Issued at any time In ex
change for convertible bonds, while
in the event of thc proposed third rail
being laid three mill ons of dollars
will have to be raised by the issue of
convertible bonds nnd stock. He
also volunteered thc information that
it will require the most strcneons ef
forts of the management to keep the
mad out of tho hands of a receiver
when Its acceptances mature on tho.
1st of January next. Here, then, in
this deplorable condition of the com
pany's finances we find thyjaalue
of the further decline in its i stoeff to a
lower point than it has touched for fl ve
orsix years. How low the panic which
is sweeping it downward will carry
it, 1 as uncertain as every
thing else in Wall street; but there
has seldom been witnessed onftlie
Stock Exchange so much real alarm
in consequence of the critical state of
affairs Is now visible on all sides. We
have often cautioned the piibTld to
avoid buying the stocks which are
now tumbling about the ears of their
owners, and that the warning was
not uncalled for is very evident
Our national securities are an ex
ception to the rule, however, those be
ing relatively cheaper than an oth
ers In the country, and the disburse
ment of the Novemler interest on
the public debt cannot"- full to stimu
late the demand for Investment
However much, therefore; the specu
lative stocks may decline, there Is no
good reason why these should not re
main firm. The further decline In
gold to 133 j hns temporarily depressed
them somewhat; but with the elec
tion of Gen. Grant they will doubt
less resume their upward tendency.
The banks are averse to encroaching
upon the reserve for the purpose of re
lieving the .prevailing stringency,
owing to the fear of a run upon their
deposits in consequence, and thestrln
gency in the Western money markets,
as well as tho prospective demand for
currency tomovcthepork and cotton
crops, admonishes them to be more
