The plan of thia little work is good, if it were properly carried out. It professes to give us, amongst ether things, the vital statistics of the dif ferent nations, but although it dates for this yeaj, most of the returns are only brought down to I860. Both as regards the United States and Great Britain, the materials were at hand for late retsrns of their imports and exports, without reference to the cepstis of either country; but of these Mr. Burritt has not availed himself. To be really useful, an annual of this kind ahould be fresh in its facta, as well as comprehensive In its design; otherwise it will prove valueless for the purpose of reference. Brass's and Sfrennb's Fbhnch and ENflLrSH Dictionaby. A new edition, edited by G. P Quackenboss. Appieton & Co. Spier's French and English Dictionary has long been acknowledged to be one of the best and most reliable lexicographic aids that we possess. Incor porated with the results of Surenne's labors, no dictionary that has as yet been pub lished bus obtained more generat currency and popu larity. By the aid of Surenne's system of notation, the sound of each word is given as indicated fcy the acknowledged standards of orthoepy in both languages, an advantage that cannot be too highly 1 appreciated. In the present edition four thousand new French words connected with science, art and general literature have been inserted, and the na merous typographical errors of former editions have been corrected. The work altogether reflects credit upon the research and conscientious accuracy of the American editor. A Pronocncino Dictionaby of the SrANisa AND ENOLISH LaNOUAOCS, BY M AKIANO VkL AS qckz db la Cadbna. Appieton A Co. Thia work is based upon the well known Diction ary of Don Matteo Seoane, but for the orthography and prosody of Seoane. now almost entirely disused the editor has substituted the new and improved or thograpby and prosody of the Dictionary of the Academy. He J>a.? also added to Se?ane's work more than eight thousand articles. For the English por tion he has taken as his guides the dictionaries of WeUter and Worcester, and in some instances Bart lett's treatise on Americanisms. With these aids he has socceeded in presenting us with the most com plete Spanish and English Dictionary that has as yet been published. Dictionary of tub German and English Lan gcaqes. By J. G. Adler, A. M. Appieton & Co. The value of this work has already been stamped l>y three large editions. The fourth, which is now before us, is recommended by its careful revision and improved typographical appearance. Morse's General Atlas of the World. Apple ton & Co. Nos. 1 and 2 of this work are now before us. So far as its plan and general execution are concerned they are entitled to commendation, bat we are rather disappointed with the appearance o# the plates. They are not what we are accustomed to look for in atlases, in which typographical excellence and fine paper are usually considered indispensable features. NEW WOBXS IN PREPARATION. Dr. Valentine, who ha3 been well known through out the United States for at least a quarter of a century, as a d-lineitor of eccentric characters, and who commenced his public career at the old Park theatre in 1835, has turned author, and is about favoring the world with a couple of his literary pro ductions. One, a story of a local comic character entitled " Richard Tremaine, or the Lottery Victim." is already completed, and the second, called " Alfred Reed, or the Reclaimed One," is nearly ready for the press. It is a comi co-religious temperance tale, em bodying the vagaries of the leading temperance men in the city for the last fifteen years. From the pe culiar vein of the author's mind, these works will no doubt produce a considerable sensation. OBITUARY ADDRE89SS ON THB OCCASION OF THE DEATH OF THE HON. JtTDOB MORRIS. The proceedings of the New York bar on the ooca Eion of the death of Judge Morris, of the Supreaae Court, the funeral orations, & c., have been publish ed in a very neat book form, for private distribu tion among the relatives, friends and professional brethren of the deceased Judge. The proceedings were reported by Messrs. Hayes & Co., stenogra phers. The clearness and beauty of the typogra phy, which embraces Mr. Morris' celebrated letter to Governor Seward in 1841, and the life-like en graving of the dccased clutching the "Glentworth Papers," render the work, as a record of the life of a great public favorite, one tliat every member of the piof ession would desire, if possible, to possess. The engraving is admirably executed by Capewell A Kimmel, and the book has been altogether beau tifully got np by Messrs. Sibel. It is not for Ale, being merely intended for gratuitous distribution among' the friends and relatives of the deceased. The Council, iiMrokly and Senatorial DU (rirta of tills City. The city charter of 1853, miscalled the " reform *' charter, under which the Board of Councilmen w a organized, provides that " the said city shall be divided (by the Common Council) into sixty district-", of contiguous territory, as near as may be of equal population, each of which shall choose one Council man. * ? * Within one year after the State and national census shall have been com pleted, the Common Council shall, in like manner, re-district said city.'' The reader will observe tk?t nothing is here said about " unnaturalized foreign, ers and colored persons who do not pay taxes." In forming Assembly districts such persons mast, under the State constitution, be excluded from the compu tation of the number of inhabitants. B it according to the law, as it now stands, the occupants (always numerous, yet constantly changing) of the emigrant boarding houses in the First and Fourth wards, and th? colored people of the Fifth and Eighth wards, will be entitled to an equal representation in the Board of Councilmen with the Americans and tax payers of the city. It will be the duty of the present Common Counci to reconstruct the Council districts. No town or ward can be divided in forming an Assembly district, nor can an Assembly district oe divided in forming a Senatorial district. The prin ciple is a wholesome one, and we have no doubt that it will be observed in forming the new Council dis tricts, as it was in forming the present, though there is nothing in the charter requiring it. But If so much is assumed to carry out the evident intent of the law , why shall not the representative popula tion of the several wards, according to the State con stitution, be taken as the basis, in the award of Councilmen to them ? We commend this question to the consideration both of our Legislature at Al bany and of our Common Council. We shall proceed to indicate the number of dis tricts to which each ward will be entitled, i/ the districts are reformed on the basis observed in W5:i. The total population of the city is 62(t,8l0. There are 60 counciimen. The ratio to each district will, therefore, be 10,4'.?7. The following J^ble will show the population of the several wards, the number of Councilmen to which they are entitled, with the fractions over: ? AiUhHimal Wards. PnptiUt/ion. Nn.

The Second and Third wards have not each sufficient population to entitle them to Cooncilmen ; but each will be awarded one. This dktpoees of two of the other ten. The remaining eight will be awarded to those wards having the largest fraction* over? which are the Ninth, Twelfth, Thirteenth, Sixteenth, Seventeenth, Eighteenth, Nineteenth and Twenty-Ant, as indicated by the two right hand columns. The First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, Tenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth wards each lose a Council man. The Twelfth, Seventeenth, Nineteenth, Twen tieth , Twenty-first and Twenty-second wards each gain a Councilman, and the Eighteenth ward gains two; but if they were divided among the several wards, according to their representative population, Twelfth and Seventeenth would neither gain aCouncilm.Ji. while the Twentieth would gain two instead of one, and the Ninth would gath one instead of remaining stationary. The peculiar character of the laws concerning the foimation of Aseembly districts favor the down town wards. Although the unnaturalized aliens and persons of color not taxed are not included in their population, and a large proportion of the population of the lower wards is composed of these two classes, the requirement that the Assembly districts shall be formed of contiguous territory, and that wards shall not be divided, nullifies the advantage to the upper wards, which it was supposed they would gain from their large American population. This city will be entitled to eighteen members of Assembly, 'rue districts, for the aext ten years, except in cases mentioned, will be composed about at* follows: ? First District ? 1 7,381 2 1,801 3 5,004 Total 14,1*6 Second district ? 4 12,030 0 12,002 Total 24,032 Third district ? 5 12,313 Fourth district ? 7 21,998 Fifth district? 8 20,825 Sixth district ? 0 30,258 Seventh district ? 10 15, !>0o Eighth district ? 11 31,457 Ninth district? 12 9,645 19 10,713 Total 20,358 Tenth district ? 13 17,277 Eleventh district ? 14 13,763 Twellth district ? 15 15,1)00 Thirteenth district ? 16 25,975 Fourteenth district? 17 32,420 Fifteenth district ? 18 23 ,570 Sixteenth district ? 20.. 32,095 Seventeenth district ? 21 19,659 Eighteenth district? 22 14,397 It will be 6een that unless some new^fule is adopt ed for the formation of Assembly distrfbts, some of them will have more than double the population of others. The rule militates with great severity against the Ninth, Eleventh, Seventeenth and Twen tieth wards. If a ward is formed from the Eleventh and Seventeenth, the Fifth and Fourteen;h will be united in one district. In foiming the Senatorial districts, it will be re membered, Assembly districts cannot be divided. This city, owing to operations of the constitution re specting the basis of representation, will have but four Senators. The respective districts will be com posed somewhat as follows: ? FIRST SKNATORIAL DISTRICT. Firft Assembly district representative popu lation 14,186 Second do. do 24,032 Third do. do 12,313 Fourth do. do 21,998 Seventh do. do 15,905 Eleventh do. do. . . / 13,763 Total 102,197 SECOND DISTRICT.

Ninth Assembly district 20,358 Sixteenth do 32,095 Seventeenth do. 19,659 Eighteenth do 14,397 Total 86,50# The Assembly and Senatorial districts are formed by the Board of Supervisors. We hare thus given some indication a* to how the different district* ? Council, Assembly and Sena torial districts? must be formed under existing cir cumstances. They are not without interest to all clust e* of readers. In former times, when party lines were distinctly drawn? before the independent press bad given birth to independent thought, and consequent free dom from paity trammels among the mass of voters ? when, year after year, certain counties were con sidered "reliable" for certain majorities for either the wbisr or democratic party ? it was considered o" uo little moment to & party to have the power of re" constructing districts for the election of member* of legislative bodies. In the rural districts, Senatorial aud Congressional districts arc often composed of two or more covnties, aud to arrange these to the advantage of the party in power at the time was a work of no little difficulty, and called into action a good deal of partisan effrontery. The minority were obliged to content themselves with hurling ut the majority the now almost obsolete epithet ol "Gerrymandering," as characterizing the.unfairness which had been shown in the formation of the dis tricts. The origin of the word we have quoted woa at one time familiar; but lest it should be forgotten, we will again recite it. When Elbridge Gerry was Governor of Massachusetts, a majority of the legis lature was of the same partv faith. The Stat# was rc-distri :ted into Congressional districts, and, in the attempt to compose them to the advantage of Mr. (Jerry's party, the spirit of the law requiring them to be compact in territory was satd to have been outraged. A map of these districts was made, and two of the opposi tion were one day looking over it. " Hec," said one, pointing to a particular district, " does not that look like a salamander ?" " Say rather a Gerry msnder," replied the other: and the word his ob. , lained universality ever since. The present Congressional districts of this State : were formed in 1*61. At the regular session o i the Legislature the census had nut been so far c ?m pleied us to afford the information necMMry. But twelve democratic Senators resigned under circum stances which gave rise to the necessity of an extra semdon. Before the extra session adjoQrned, tho population of the State had been determined, and thus upon a whig legislature fell tho advantage of forming the Congressional districts for ten yean. The next Legislature was democratic; so that, h >w ever patriotic the motives which actuated the twelve democratic Senators, the result in this particular apparently added to the misfort ines of their party, which followed the con'ce they pursued. The whig Legislature so formed the Congres- ' sionu! districts that, with the old party lines I stiflly drawn, and with only moderate good for. tur.e, they might count with a good degree of certainty upon twenty of the thirty, four members of Congress from this State. Strong | democratic counties were put together, and counties which Rave small democratic majorities were paralyzed in the embrace of some gigantic whig neighbor. For instance, Herkimer and St. Law- i n nee, each in the halcyon days of democracy good | for ri"u? twelve ti firte?n bunjruj denn.ritb TU ' jortty, wan pat late one Congrwrioeal district, al though it to mom hundred and fifty aHaa or more from one extremity of the district to the other, Mid the settled portions are at two extremes on the Erie Canal and the St. Lawrence river, while the central portion is an almost unexplored wilderness. Delaware and Otsego, also two democratic counties, form another district; Steuben, then a democratic county of moderate strength, was swamped in Livingston. The small democratic counties of Seneca and Yates were associated with Ontario, j then a whig stronghold. In this city the policy par. sued may be illustrated more clearly. Thoee homes of the democracy and " the brogue," the Fourth, Sixtb, Fourteenth and Tenth wards , were erected into one district. The then moderately demo* cratic First and Fifth wards were over shadowed by the Second, Third and Eighth* The Eleventh and Seventeenth were attached to the Fifteenth. The Seveuth and Tenth wards were democratic, and they were associated with the city of Williamsburg, also democratic. The Ninth) Sixteenth and Twenty-Ant wards formed another district. Thus was the democratic strength ao oou centrated into two districts, thut of the six Con* gmcmeo to which this city and Brooklyn are en' titled they could not calculate with certainty on carrying but thoee two, although on a general ticket they could probably carry the whole. But the best laid plauH often fail, as did those of the whig Legislature. At the hrst election under their apportionment, the democrats, owing to the disaffection towards Gen. Scott, carried twenty, and the whigs fourteen of the Congressional districts* The small democratic counties overshadowed the large whig oounties, and in this city and Brooklyn every democratic candidate was elected. The existing state of confusion among parties will serve to discourage auy at empt at " Gerryman* dering " in the Legislature, the Common Council or the Board of Supervisors. No man can foresee what a day will bring forth ? most of all, piliticaliy. If there were any such disposition in the Legisla" ture, it cannot develope itself successfully, in conae quence of the fact that neither party has a majority in either branch* The districts to be formed of this city, whether Council, Assembly or Senatorial, can not be so " Gerrymandered " as to afford any guaran* tee w h&tever that they will promote any end which may be in contemplation by those making the divi sion. The character of the population of any dis trict, and, consequently, under the present land* mat ks, the strength of the respective parties, may change so suddenly, and from such incomprehensible motives, that there can be little satisfaction in labor ing to establish districts with certain boundaries. We caution, then, all who have " Gerrymandering " inclinations to beware, lest they are " hoist by their own petard." NotM afei th? Pragma of Science. It is reported that a plan has been matured and laid before the Smithsouiau Institute for the diffu hi on of copies of the masterpieces of sculpture. The project has been well received, and there will probably be favorable action upon it early this winter. The art? now and for so long a time past almost dormant ? of using various colored bricks and stones in building is now exciting some attention in scien. tific circles. It is suggested that a great variety of fine effects of color might be produced with the several shades of red and yellow brick at the com maud of the builder. There are few buildings so beautiful in color as the church of Murauo,and its beauty is owing almost entirely to the mas terly arrangement of the colored bricks of which it is constructed; and there is no doubt that an ar tist of taste, by the judicious UBe of such materials at the present day, might greatly beautify the build ings of his creation. The group of sculpture carved by Gibson, the English artist, for the Parliament House, represent' I ing the Queen enthroned between Jastiee and Cle mency, is completed. The London Athenaum says of the Queen's statue, that as a likeness it is a fail ure; the figure is too plump, the pott too theatrical and the face too heavy. But apart from the meie want of resemblance to the original, it has a certain grandeur of outline, and a massiveness of concep tion. which bespeak the hand of the accomplished artist. Mr. Crawford, the American sculptor, is now busily engaged in completing his models, twelve in number, for the pediment of the capitol at Wash ! Lngton. These figures are designed to represent the piogTfsa of civilization. According to the English journals, the Minie weapon must soon bo superseded. Lancaster's elliptically bored carbincs having been subjected to 1 various proofs in the arsenals at Woolwich, her Majesty's corps of sappers ard miners are now being armed with them. These muskets have seve ral qualities which have caused them to be pro nounced superior in construction and power to the Minie ntle, and have a range of upwards of 1,CM) yards. Mr. Stephen Brown, a practical printer in Syra cuse, has efiected some very noticeable improve ments in card presses, the chief advantage con tilting in the ability to print diflerent colors at one ar.d tie same time, while running at the rate of al>out twelve hundred per hour. It takes up about the tame space as the Rugbies press, and is nearly as simple in its construction. The bed and plates are in the same position as the Adams press. The war has by no meaus impeded the progress of scientific pursuits in Russia. During the last year a numerous party started for the exploration of Eastern Siberia; another party was sent to the B'.eppesof the Kirghis; atbiidwas deputed to fix the exact geographical positions of a number of points in or near the U ral mountains, to form a base lor the coni-truction of an exnet topographical map of the vast districts of mines in that part of Russia; n fonth expedition, with torty chronometers, was to join, first, Moscow with Saratov, aud this latter town with Astrachan; and finally, the great trigo nometrical operations in the southern part of Russia | and in the tians-Cawcasian provinces are carried on ; without the least interruption There are, also, at ! j resent 6,000 miles of telegraph wires erected in i f.ussia.all of which are continually used for the tninnnissiou of telegraphic despatches. Mr. L. L. Chapman, of Philadelphia, has deve loped & new theory in respect to the weather. This is, that light, polarized at certain angles, will gene rate much more electricity than when polarized at certain other angles. Proof? Light, polarized in some angles, will, when converged, perfectly mag netize wire in less than an hour, while rays polar ized at other angles will have no such effect. There fore, currents ol rays polarized by reflection from the diflerent bodies of the solar system, in greater and less degrees, according to the "more or lew highly electrical angles,'' must necessarily produce fluctuations in the electrical condition or the atmos phere. To these fluctuations Mr. Chapman a& ct iles i-torn b. earthquakes, and all meteoric changes, as well as ( holer#, vegetable blight, Ac. An Englishman has obtained a patent for the fol loving method of making pipes:? He takes thin snips of wood ar.d bends tnem spirally and dia gonally, and fills np the interstices with asphalt or cement? a process which is Baid to acoomplish the purpose very successfully. A new material for building purposes is now claiming the attention of builders. It is artificisl wndstone, and is composed entirely of sand and ime. The ingredients are mixed in the required proportions, and then, by a very powerful machine, hi! jected to great pressure, which immediately in du< es a chemical change, rendering the blocks in a short time as hard as sandstone trora the quarry, and like it in appearance. These block-*, which are alxmt three times the size of common bricks, have )>e< n subjected to chemical and atmospheric tests that crumbled brick into powder at once, without injury. Experiments with it, in respect to its power of resisting cold and heat, have been per formed by ProleBsors Henry and flillinun, and from the opinion given by them the new material would appear to possess merits likely to render it of sub stantial value. The New Haven Rtguttr states that a patent has just been taken out by a gentleman of that city for the prevention of the counterfeiting of bank bins in every manter, either by photographing, altering or otherw ise; and so highly approved is his invention, that fcur of the New Haven banks will at once pro ceed to issue hills after the new method. The in vention is the result of chemical experiments. Tho paper to be need for the new bills is of light straw color: red is also employed. These colors are ren drtcd necessary by the chemical process to which the pa| er is required to be subjected in its manu facture. AitifWJal rearing of salmon is likely to elicit some interesting facts in physiological science, and it is now becoming largely extended a? n b-isine* in va rlot> (nits of Europe. The re-filling of the breed ing Ik xi s at Btonnoutfield is now tic uncompleted I P? ti c of tbem ha\e been filled with ov.i taken irom I grilse. and kepi separate from thorn stocked with salmon ova. It is said to be the Intention of the eo perintendent to Impregnate the ova of a salmon or grilse from the meii taken from one of the para in the pond, many of which at present are full of melt. A London architect has discovered a simple pro cess by which a beautiful effect may be produced in stained glass, for ecclesiastical purp'ises, at a very moderate expense. My union of two pieces of flushed glass, having different patterns and different colors, a design is produced of great beauty of form, rich new of eolor, and possessing a sparkling brilliancy, which is almost unrivalled in any other variety of glass. The process is a unique and beautiful one. The horizontal single cylinder engine is gaining ground in Europe on the double cy linder vertical engine. At one time, the groat objection to horl zontal engines was the excessive unequal wear of the piston upon the lower side of the cylinder; bat owing to the accuracy with which pistons are now made, the wear and tear upon cylinders is greatlj re duced. In France, the consumption of coal per | horse power, in the most common steam engines, is very low ? only about three pounds, and the makers of them guarantee that they will not exceed that amount. The steam is used at about 50 lbs. preMmre on the square inch, and is cut off at one-fifth of the stroke; ana bo far as economy of fuel goes, they are equal to an engine with two cylinders, the one for high pressure, and the other for expansion? the well known Wolfe principle. Gun cotton is now extensively used in blasting rocks. The objections to its more general use are the inequality of its action compared with gunpowder; the effect on the gun iB greater; its projectile force varies with the compression of it in the gun ; it at tracts more moisture, alters slowly from loss of acid, and explodes under some circumstances at 154 de grees Fahrenheit. At the Boston locomotive establishment, a twenty two ton passengei locomotive is building, as an ex periment. In the g> ncration of steam in the engine, coils of pipes are placed one upon the top of the other, wnich contains the water, and upon which pipes the fire is directly brought. It is intended to burn coal, aud it is thought steam can be made in ten or twelve minutes from the time of kindling the fire. Another novelty is, that the engineer is placed alu ad of the smoke pipe. The fireman is to be placed behind the boiler. A pateiit car brake, involving some new improve ments designed to meet a long felt desideratum, has been invented by Mr Paul Moody. It consists of an additional steam chest on the locomotive, inside of which is a piston similar to that used in all steam cylinders, and connected with this piston is the ma chinery for "brakeing" the train. The machinery is merely a moveable aim or lever, which con nects with another lever, and that with another, continuously, running the whole length of the train. These levers are connected with the brakes, and perform the operation of checking and stop ping the cats simply by the hand of the engineer applied to a spring or valve. The London Mining Journal says that Messrs. Adams ft Gee, printers, of London, have found that metallic plates, of the thickness of ordinary sheet tin, may be printed upon with the usual printing types, if the plates be first coated with a composi tion, the secret of the inventor. If sheets thus printed upon be afterwards subjected to a cer tain japanning process, an even lustrous surface is produced, which cannot be acted upon except by a sharp steel instrument. It may le applied in any instance where printed matter is either to be exhibited, or even handled, for any length of time, and may be advantageously substituted for the hitherto mounted lessons. How ever soiled a copy of the metal print may become by exposure to dust of every kind, it can be clean ed and. washed, even without being taken off. M. Ham' re, of Paris, has exhibited a graving ma chine, by which medals, cameos or any other re lieved surfaces may be reproduced. A medal, for instance, is placed fiat on a metal disk, to which it iB firmly attached, and a metal pencil the size of an ordinaiy crayon, and very sharp at the end, so as to trace a line no larger than the finest hair, is brought down upon its centre. The sheet of ivory or metal which is to serve as the basis of the copy is placed on another disk, upon which is brought down a sim ilar pencil furnished with the sharpest possible diamond point. The medal and the copy-plate being now periectly adjusted, the two pencils, which are connected by a rod, are set in move ment by the machinery of this very ingenious I invention, and which may be worked by hand or steam at pleasure. The reproductions are perfect fac similes of the original, and of great delicacy and beauty. Later from Fort Hem. The St. Loot* Democrat says:? We have received by tel egraph from our correspondent at Weston the following lews from Fort Pierre WX8TOX, Jan, 31, 1856. Messrs. Dunlap and Worflford, pilot and mate of the Meaner Grey CI vd arrived from Fort Pierre night before last <n route to St. Louis. The (ire/ Cloud got within 230 miles ot the Fort on the 2d of November. Sent oo an ea tress to tbe fort, and received an ana wer to wait Or Major How, who was coining wi h two hundred troops to take charge of tbe boat and cargo. On the 21st the river closed, and it cowme noed snowing very fast. The next day the boat was visited by seventy-five Indian warriors, who demanded ammunition and provisions. We heard of the tioops fifty miles off. The thermometer at this time hid fallen to 36 degrees below sero. On the 31st Decem ber the crew was diaoharged by order of General Harney, ttd ha took poteession of the boat and eargo. The c >ld was so gieat ihat several of the men were badly fr.atn. On ihe 7th of January General Harney arrived, twenty two days out f'om the fort. He traveled all the way on the if e, with only thirty men. During hl? joarney he saw a laige lumber of Indiana, and told them thkt "this wss tbe time f.r them to fight while the cold weatber lasted; Ve hail but few men, and they might kill him now, but fce would give them h? 1 in the spring." Dunlap aid others left the Or ey Cloud on the 12th of Jenuary, and came on the ice as far as Council Bluffs. Mabkied Womkn'b Rights in Kkntdckt.? The following bill has became a law in Kentucky: ? 'The Cir cuit Courts of this commonwealth, and other curts having e^iii'y jmisdicMon equal io the present equi*y juiitdiction of circuit court", may, upon the petition of a mii-iie d woman, to which her husband shall be a party, tender a judgment authorizing her in her o<rn name to transact bus Dety, and to receive and collect her own earnings of her minor children, for her support, and the mpport atd education of her children, fies from the con trol or int*r'erei.c0 ot her husband, or ot any person claim 'ng to act by bis authority, and fr jm his deb's and liabilities.

At the first board Missouri 6's advanced ? per cent ; Illinois Central bonds, lj ; New York Cen tral fi's, } ; Nicaragua Transit, A ; Cumberland Cod, i ; New York Central Railroad, ? ; Erie, 4 ; Michigan Central, 2 ; Reading, 14 ; Hudson Rail road, 4 ; Michigan Southern, 2| ; Cleveland, Colun> bus and Cincinnati, i ; Illinois Central, ? ; Galena and Chicago, J ; Cleveland and Toledo, 1 ; Chicago and Rock Island, 1|. We have not had such a spirited market for many months, and according to the opinion of some of our largest operators the rise has but just commenced. The transactions in all the leading stocks to-day were immense. Nearly nine thousand shares of Erie were sold at tbe first board, opening at 644 and closing at 56 per cent. There were four lots sold of over 1,000 shares each, and sales were made as high as 55J, buyer 60 days. Michigan Konthern opened and closed strong. It run up to 98} per cent cash. All the Western rail road stocks were in demand at the improvement, and holders are confidently looking for par for those which have so long been so unwarrantably depressed. At the second board the same spirit prevailed, and prifes were well sustained. Nicaragua Transit ad vanced j| per cent; Erie Railroad j; Catena and Chic ago j). Reading j|. Michigan Southern closed at 06 a !i8A per cent. The steamship Persia, at this port from Liverpool, biirgn >? even days later intelligence. The new* is highly important, and politically of the most favora ble character. The pro! nihilities of peace are daily I ecotring stronger. The preliminaries are progress ing rnj Idly. The effect of the fact thai negotia tions ore nl out being resumed was visible through oat all department* of trade, and upon prices for aft public securities. The flrat effect has been well sus tained. The period which had elapsed between the departure of the steamers had strengthened and confirmed the first impressions, and the public mind was gradually settling down upon a peace basis. A few weeks will suffice to bring public opinion up to the proper point. The last quotation for consols was 90$ per cent; on the 24th of January 91 per cent was touched. The last bank return makes a good show. The following variations from the pre vious week were reported l'ublic dt posits, inurease ?219, <28 ? Other deposits, decrease ? ?4 66,62* Notes and bills In circulation, dec, ease ? 20,190 Rest, inoie*se 34,639 ? On the other side of the account: ? Government securities, Increase ?314,787 ? Other ?ecuiities, decrease ?* 668,408 Coin and bullion, increase 8,481 ? In produce markets there hod been no change of importance. The cotton market was inactive, with a slight advance in prices. Breadstulb have par tially recovered. In relation to these staples the circular of Wright, Junior, & Co., of Jan. 25, says>? The prtOimiDAfUs tor the ratification of dbs.cs are sup posed to be favorably progressing, although no additional feature has become apparent to enable the be*t]in orraad to calculate with precision as to the course watch affairs ids y ultimately take, and confidence is founded alone on what everj one appears to say must prove to be true ; tome days' pa lento must consequently and nece.sxa*Uy be rxercked tu avoid tailing into error. 1'rofenaert opinion* itidii es to a speedy termination ot the war ; in th? mean time tleie is 1 1) le.'axsiiot in the preparations for aon tinuii g the struggle,- shou'd events talce a turn contrary to general expectation. That such a result it unloosed f> r is e>i(lent from the course of nur produce markets, which are we'l suppor'ed, though much of the excitement ot last week has subsided, anc the commercial communi ty are now lockii g forward to the influence a different order ot things is caleulated to effect. In regard to cot ton, there ia no doubt consumption will be large; proba bly greater than at any previous period; but to lnsire thin lo mateiial advance in price must occur, and this 14 Itkeiy to be checked f om tie knowledge of this season's ?1 op being so extensive. The value of money cannot be expected to decline; greater accommodation may be af forded, but the increased circulation ot bills, whioh aa expansion of trade will necessarily occasion, is of itself a sufficient r?ason against antlo'peting much greater ei^w In < is count rates. Speculation will doubtless bs indulged in, but not to the same extent as many suppose, the in ducement* not being of that promising character whioh have usuelly biassed the action of cipl alists. As the war has not interfered much with our foreign trade, but, on the contrary, stimulated it to some quarters ? whuh will now be curtailed? we c?n only look for an increase tn the home demand to give impetus to prices. Greater activi ty will probably characterize this department, although fo lorg as taxation and provisions continue on the pre sent high scale, no material improvement is likely to show itself. America may be a larger easterner than usual, trem the 'act of the heavy crops of all kind* eu lirhing her people; but it is questionable if she wlil not draw tiom ttis country some amount ot specie, whioh, wi h all the ii ccmings fr<m Australia andeUe*fctere. mty be required to meet the war expenditure so far, and for eign loons tbat will doubtless be offering after peace is ett tablithed. We ierer to additional remarks below tor re ports on trade prospects, and the position of our grain markets, which have an important bearing on the sub ject. In relation to American securities the London circular of E. F. Satterthwaite says: ? The maiket for American securi'ies in London has been firm. The msil service being temporarily deranged, we are not in possession of suoh late dates as usual from New York; aad, as tie next mail will bring ten days later advices, operations have been held some vh at in suspense until their receipt. Attention has also been greatly attracted to hoixe securities since the negotia tions for ptace. We cote, however, a very strong de mand for all the securities ot the Illinois Central Railroad, and at considerably advanced rates, f >iere are sti 1 a few Erie bonds on the market, especially the Sinking Fund bonds, but sellers have demanded higher rates. We look for verj bigh prices Ir^m America, in response to the late Important advance in consols. The Daily Ntic* city article, dated Friday even ing, January 25, fays: ? The funds to-day have experienced an unfavorable re ac'ion ot X per cent. After so marked a rise as that lately witnessed a partial relapse is not surprising. The okief depressing irfluence, however, appears to rest with the continued sales on government account. The Bank of England, baving made large advances to government, fells stock for the latter, and thu* draws baok the nitea Ihbth d in payment of the dividends. Owing to the demand for money against these sales, and to meet to-day's final instalment on the Turkish loan, the money market in toe Stock Exchange was rather stringent, and lenders eould easiy obtain six per cent upon government securities, out of doors, however, theie was no tightness. It la pre tiUKed tbat little, ifany, of the gold per the Champion of the Seas will be retained here. Tbe coin and bullion and the tererve of notes in the returns of the Bank of Eng land show, in each ease, a amall Increase. The addition 10 the treasury deposits ia explained by the inorease iu the government securities held by tee bank. The direc tors have evidently made fresh advance* to the Chan jai lor of the Exchequer. The further decrease of more than bait a million in the private seouri'Jes is a satisfactory feature, indicating a diminution in the pressure fur mo ney in commercial eireles. t In Manchester an improved feeling pervaded all classes, without, however, any great accession of business. Nor is it apparent where any increase of demand can spring from, so little interruption to trade has the war engendered. The absence of stocks, however, inspires confidence, and there was more desire to renew contracts at old prices, which spinners and manufacturers were unwilling to con cede. The transactions are consequently somewhat restricted, excepting, probably, particular descrip tions of both goods and yarns, for which advanced rates have been paid.
