THE FINANCIAL SITUATION.
The bank Statement of Satin.lay requires j
1 iplanatioo, as it reflecta the operation
??f severd important changea. Then is lir.st,
the restoration ?>i the National state Bank to
ill-* lint, viliich adds reported averagi s of $6 |<;,
400 to loana, $9,600 to specie, $207,500 to
legal tendera, 1341.700 to deposits, ami $43,
500 to circulation. Deducting three [teats, the
s in the othi r banks sinee hist week
are an bacreaae of $4,252,000 In loans,"r-.Tl*?*,
200 in .sp?-eie, and$2,798,200 indepodta, and
a d?cr?t?t of ????Ml LOOO in legal tandera, and
$106,900 in circulation. These eoauiderabtc
changea raanlti bat? frota the ?sale of the Ai.i
bama bonds and the gold paid for tin m,
amounting to over $6.000,000] sixwnd, from
the diabursenient of $3,532,000 oa ?nteres!
aecount by the Government, the customs re?
ceipts during the weekhaving 1.. en only $1,774,
OOOj third, from the export of $2,701,583
ha specie during the week; fourth, from the
?oan ol three millions effected by the ?ity on
revenue boudai and other loins effected by
holders of the Alabama !..iti?ls, of which a large
part are -ti'l in the city, and finally, from the
torrendef of nearly $700,000 in circulation
by the banks. These changea in part balance
each other, so th.it a net gam of ?specie,
.mounting to $5,157,000, \s?>iild not have
been suipriaing, and it is probable that the av?
erage i. Boaaawhal lower in this respect ami
in depeeta than the actual position at the
elose of the week. On the other hand, the
decrease in legal t?!.?b:s arising from the sale
if cold has r.s yet Inen connteibalanced only
by payment of leas than $1,000,000 to Ala?
bama ?humants, and an increase of the legal
louder atore may 1l1.rc.ore be expected as the
remaining pay menta are made. For tins pr?t?
ent, however, the reserve is radoced below _.''??
per c.nt of deposits, and the legal-tender re?
serve t<? only 19 per cent. The poeition and

'J he sanrender of dicnlation, as w?r have

this city reporting at tin- and of April, and u>
in.illy $700,000 f??r the whole ?-oiii.liy. The
hii-t ?i.iieiiiint of the Controller of tins Cur?
rency shows the progress of the movement to

?in ?ni?m! at that ?late sinie January 1!

idera retired ander that act amount.-?! to
$11,472,124, t?o thai the real contraction, by
voluntary MirrendeTof circulai ion in obedience
to "the wants of trade,"1 has been $42,586,.
075, With this oiiicial Information at hand,
re may add about $700,000 for reported aur*
it i.dci of ciieiiiation sin.e the beginning ?<f
May, BftakiM about $43,286,000 in all, from
Jaanaiy II, 1st?, to ?lat?'.
For the banks, with bird-tender reserves
decidedly lower than is usual at this time of
tin* year, the main Qneetiot? is how lar and
!iow rapidly this movement wfll ??.?ntiinie. As
throwing aome Hght upon the amount of enr
reaey f??r which there is use, the eompariaon
<>r b;ink Clearing- is instructive, [gut week
the transactions were $06,000,000 less thitii
tbOSO of ths QtariTSponding week lust year, a
decline of 19 per cent ; but this is aoasawhal
in excess of the average thin far ggtOf
.1 iiinary 1, which has Im-cu about 11 per cent.
That there is a considerable shrinkage In the
niimuiit of bntiaeaa transacted appears also
from the decreaso of imports, custOOM re?
ceipts, and exporta both of domestic, produeta
and of specie. In Importa sim-e July 1, ]H7"?,
the decreaso has been about $100,000,000 j
in d?>iu<-*?tic exports, $41*060,000, and
j in exiHirt? of specie, $??,OO0.?<)?_?. The
1 prolonged ttagnation in the itock mar
i Let, and the downward tendency of
price?, operate to lea-ten the quan?
tity of currency needed. Domestic com
ni?-m*, thouKh not greatly iiit?-rriipt?Ml, in 11.111*
aet.ed nt a range of piice* ooiisiilerahly lower
tliau those of 1N75, and in very many aitiehs
low? r than those of lSi'.O. The giaal iron
baafaMM ia sinning up again, a large propor?
tion of UM mili? working double time, 1,010
out of a total of 2,359 of which The Iron aft
lias rec.-ived rapOfft*. Yet the piice? obtained
for pio.lii.ts are much below those ot last
yi-ar. All these facts point to one general
conclu-ion. T?kt ?l??y <>f tpemlatBrn ami bigh
prices is over ; business is coiilin?Mg itsclf to
legitimate channels nuil slowly nil.i.i?inig itseli'
to low, i ligures, ami the amount o? ciiirciicy
required in use is likely to ilcfiin.se rather
tlian to increase. Wiih this general cause,
another ?if much gri'ater potency with individ?
ual banks ?powerfully cooperates, namely, the
conthiied high piice of bomi-?, and tlie belief
that gold is likely to fall as atepa are ?takea

-l.v ADMIEABLE PROJECT.
A large number ?>f gentlemen of this city,
in order to add to th?* attraetivenesa of New
York ?luring the Cent?*nt'ial Summer, have m
tereted themselves in getting up an exhibition
of the private nit treasures of our citi/tus.
They have suit | circular to the principal pos
sessorsof valuable pictures and other woilta of
Sit, Which has bun freely respomletl to, ami
we learn Unit a meeting is soon to bo called to
put the project m execution. The design is I
to procure UM buildings of the Academy of
Design and of the Metropolitan Art Museum
fur the purposes of the inhibition, and to
allow the proceeds which may arise from a
small charge for admission to go to the benelil
of tin-He. excellent institutions.
This plan strikes us ?is in every wuv com
mendable; if carried out it will greatly en
hnnce the pleasures of a visit to New-York
during the Rummer; it will enable both oui
residents ami our visitors to enjoy a treat in tin
way of masterpieces of modern art, that ha?
never been surpassed and that is not likely
soon to be renewe?! ; and it will aid esscntiallj
in the establishment ami progress of two ol
our most useful public organizations.
Wo have no doubt that our citizens whr
may be railed upon to assist in the further?
ance of this most pntimtio,-mil beneficent under*
taking will cheerfully lend their ai?l. We know
how many of them have been tormented by
applications of the kind, ami how naturally
th? y might be at first disposed to refuso th? ii
co?jxT tioii ; but the oiTiisiou now ii excep
[ tional ? it concerns our own and not distant
?itits- and it will be, wo aro assured, a bril?
