THE DAILY EXCHANGE.
VOL. I—NO. 114. BOARD OF TRADE. Committee of Arbitration for the month of June. HE.VRY S. GARRETT. GI'STAVES HEXKEKSoX, | JOHN H. WYMAN, OLA AS VOCKE I JAS. CAREY COALE. Jflonttaqt anb (Commercial sltbitto. BALTIMORE, July 2,1858. Another dull week has prevailed in the Stock market the total transactions summing up about $150,000 at the Board, against $190,000 last week. The hot weather which is causing many persons to leave the city, ar.d the fact that the transfer books of most of the leading stuckt had been closed to the Ist instant, have contributed in a great measure to the general dullness which has been manifested. Baltimore and Ohio Railroad stock opened on Saturday last with sales at $57 cash, and subsequently declined t/ $56. ft afterwards recovered a little, the cash sales on Thursday being at ss6#, closing at ss6# bid, ss6# asked, regular way; ss6# bid, $57 asked, buyer 60 days. The Stock Board having on yesterday adjourned over until Tuesday next, on account of the approaching National Anniversary, we are without any transactions to report to-day. The sales of the week embrace only about I,soo shares. Northern Central has lieen very quiet during the week, with sales of only 330 shares, the last being at sl7# cash, sl7# buyer's option 60 days. In Loaus and Bonds there has been a very moderate business done. The only sales of Maryland 6's were $3,000 lS9o's at 105 and $3,600 1870's at 104#. City 6's have ruled steadily through the week at 96 for 1890's; but to day we heard of sales of $20,000 at 96#, and afterwards at 97. Railroad bonds have been very quiet. The last sales of Baltimore and Ohio 1875's were at 85#, Northern Cen tral 1885's at 65#, Central Ohio 2d mortgage at 51 cash, 61# buyer 60days, and North Western Virginia Ist mort. gage at 90. Bank stocks nre held firmly, with very few ottering. Canton brought slß# on Thursday, which was the last transaction, and Springfield Mining s2#. The Money market is still exceedingly easy. Although the Banks are on the eve of making their July statements, required at the last session of the Legislature, they are discounting all the good paper offered, though they evince rather less anxiety to employ their means until after the statements have been made up. Undoubted single names go readily on the street at 6 per cent., which is also the rate for endorsed paper. On call loans are easily ob tained at 5 per cent, with State or City stocks as collateral. Fancy Stocks at New York were dull at the close of the Second Board to-day, and prices generally lower. Erie declined #; New York Central #; Cleveland and Toledo , V Missouri 6's also declined Reading and Panama are unchanged. The New York Times says of the money market on tha Ist inst. "There has been some activity in the street to day in the way of paying and collecting the half yearly dividends. But the movement makes no change in the price or easy supply of money, nor do the collections for foreign ac count perceptibly influence the rates of Exchange. AVe quote demand money loans at 4 percent.; short discounts on prime paper 4 per cent., 90 days to 6 months' paper 5@ 6 per cent.; bills oil London 109#(5109#; Paris f. 5.12# to the dollar. There is little or no export demand for Bui lion. The half yearly payments, this morning, of inter est on the Federal and State loans have stiffened the de mand for i nited States C's of 1867-'6B, and for Missouri's, Tennessee's, Ac." The exchanges at the New York Bank Clearing House on Thursday, were $17.411,231.66, and the balances $983, I 740.20. The operations of the Sub Treasury of New York on Thursday were as follows; Total receipts ; $157,111 43 Of which from customs 81,000 09 Paymeuts 228,901 57 Balance 6,415,663 28 The market at Xew York has been dull for Treasury Notes; there were transactions on Thursday of alwut $300,000 at 1-10 per cent, premium for the 4# per cents, and 2 10 per cent, premium for the 4# per cents. The New York Herald says : The Buffalo Railroad Convention, which, it was fondly hoped, would lead to a settlement of the suicidal rivalry between the F.rie and Central, adjourned sine die last eve ning. without having accomplished anything. The fol lowing resolution was passed : Resolved , That the New York and Erie road be requested to advance on its passenger rates to the prices prior to the recent reduction, which rates shall remain unchanged till the 15th July next, and that a committee of three be ap painted by this Convention to inquire into the difficulties between the Erie and Central roads. The Erie directors present protested against the su]>er visory authority assumed by the Convention, and the rep resentatives of the Cleveland and Toledo and some other roads which were represented took no part iu the proceed ings. It is well known in railroad circles that the design of the Convention, which was got up by the New York Central, was to induce all of the Western and other roads to enter into a combination to cut off traffic from the Erie, in order to punish it for destroying the railway business by the adoption of cheap fares.

GRAIN.—The offerings have been unusually light, fall ing below those of last week some 35,000 hush, and being in the aggregate only 85,000 bush. The very light re ceipts have in a measure contributed to the inactivity that has prevailed, shippers on foreign account not being wil ling to select from limited assortment. The trade on this account has in a measure been confined to the local de mand and coastwise shipments, which have not been very brisk.

Captain Marcv, in a private letter to his broth er, describes New Spring, which is located about twenty iniles from "Camp, on Fountaine qui Itonilfe." It is called the "Fountain that Boils," and he found it to be one of the greatest natural ! curiosities ho had ever met with. There is a verv round and smooth rock, elevated several feet above the earth, with an oval top, and directly upon the top is a round basin, like an artiticial fountain, into 1 which conies trom the bottom a stream of water as . large as a man's arm, with as much force as if thrown by a tire-engine. The basin remaius tilled j constantly, hut does not run over, having a subter | raucous outlet. On tasting this water, much to his astonishment, he found it very similar to Congress water, only much more pleasant. He drank large quantities of it, and lie savs it produced a delight tul sensation. GOLI> MINKS IN VERMONT. -A correspondent of the Boston Traveler, writing from Montpelier, June 24, says that a returned Californian having discovered gold, after a careful search, in the beds of the streams running from a high mountain ridge about ten miles north of that place, quietly went to the landowners, and, without their knowing the fact of the discovery, purchased the exclusive right for digging for gold in the largest stream for three years. All through the present season he has been at work there with an assistant, and says that he is ; doing a good business every day. He has found a nugget worth thirty dollars, and one worth eight dollars. The goldsmiths pronounce the gold purer and wortli more per ounce than that which is I brought from California. Gold was discovered many years ago in Plymouth, Winsor county, Ver mont, but in such limited quantities that it has never compensated any one to gather it. Cast Year ' gold was mined successfully in a stream running down the other side of the mountain ridge above mentioned.

Albany, July I.—Mrs. Dudley having espoused the cause of Dr. Gould, and written a letter requesting the majority of the Trustees of the Observatory to resign, the Trustees reply, expressing their determination to adhere to their position, and declaring that in the honorable dis charge of their duties under the charter, they must insist on the removal of Dr. Gould. Meantime the Scientific Council have addressed letters to the Trustees, calling for the charges against Dr. Gould. To this the Trustees reply, refusing to recognize the right of the Council to usurp any such powers or authority. A scientific council, consisting of Professors Henry, Bache and Horace, held a session this afternoon, at which an address was adopted, proposing to the Trustees of the Observatory, first, to take unconditional and immediate charge and direction of the Observatory, subject only to the Board of Trustees, thus occupying themselves the place of Directors. If this be not agreed to, they then pro pose a committee of five citizens to settle the controversy with respect to Dr. Gould. The Trustees reject all propo sitions peremptorily, not recognizing any right on the part of the Council to interfere with the office of the Trustees, or in any way control their action. It seems probable that the whole Coast Survey will resign their place in the Council, as they cannot substantiate any claim to interfere with the action of the Trustees, who derive their power from the act of incorporation. From Washington. WASHINGTON, July 2.—Our Government is in possession of dispatches from Minister Forsyth, who at the latest ac counts was in correspondence with the Mexican Govern ment on the subjects growing out of the tax on property belonging to American citizens. The point for demanding his passports had not been reached. The contracts for supplying stationery for the Interior, War and Navy Departments, were to-day awarded to Messrs. Blanchard A Mohun, for the State Department; to Wra. F. Bayly; and for the Trtftsury Department, to Franklin Philip. All the successful bidders are residents of Washington. The whole number of land warrants issued during the past month was 963, to satisfy which over 142,000 acres of land is necessary. The President has taken up his summer residence at the Soldier's Home, between three and four miles from Washington The Secretary of War occupies a house ou the same premises. From I'fah. WASHINGTON, July 2. —The government has received a letter from Major Benjamin McCullough, dated Camp Scott, in which he states his belief that one of the reasons why the Mormons deserted their habitation was to guard their wives from the apprehended excessive gallantry of our soldiers. Besides the leaders resorted to this exodus to keep the people together and prevent the disaffected saints from throwing themselves on the army for protection* The Mormons do not believe that the army has orders or authority to pursue them, and hence congratulate them selves that they are out of harms way from that source. Major McCullough says there is a small force of Mormons still in Salt Lake City ready to fire it on the event of the approach of the army. He thinks a great mistake was made in permitting the Mormous to gather their crops, as this, while it strengthens them, has diminished relatively the power of the military forces. It is still reported that the .Mormons are going to Sonora, hut upon this, full re liance cannot be placed. The belief is, that a place of re fuge has long ago l>een selected. Major McCullough and the other Peace Commissioner Governor Powell, were going at once to Salt Lake, but not with themy. Their powers are superior to either those of Gov. Cumming or Gen.Johnson.

Daring the past year the business ot the road has been increased 841,101.24 over that of last year, and by prudence and economy the expenses have been so reduced as to justify the expenditure of $87,103,50 upon a new superstructure, and a dimin ution of the aggregate indebtedness of the Company $41,197.82. In view of the payment of a debt due in London in 1800, it is proposed to suspend money dividends after the first of next November, and to substitute therefor certificates of debt which, ac cording to the provisions of the charter, bear 7 per cent., and are exempt from every description of tax ation, which will necessarily command their par value in market. The current expenses of the Com pany during the last year amount to $123,470.23, their receipts to and their net income; after paying interest, extraordinary expenses, Ac., foot up $108,909.57.

RETURNED TO THEIR FIRST LOVE.— Yesterday two youths of nearly fall age, were at (he Farmeii' Ho tel, on their way to the "far west," to the home of their childhood; which they preferred to alt others. It appears they were stolen by Indians when very young, and raised by one of the Western tribes.— Their friends ascertained the whereabouts of the lost children some time ago, and induced them to leave the Indians anil return to their relatives in one of the Eastern States. The boys, after trying civilized life a while, concluded that they didn't ike it, and were here yesterday on their way back to their Western home. W c could not learn their names or the tribe of Indians they belong to.—7M tlianapoli* Journal,
