FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
Th(iuu?t, July 10-4 P. M. Witb the fall of the mercury in the thermometer the %v?r of speculation on the Block Exchange seems to kl*t been partially allayed, and to-day the market for railway share! ha* been tuodeiately quiet. There U DO ?otlueabls change, however, In tho temper of the street, ?nd the course of prices promises to be upward, varied V light reactions and short Intervals of dulness. With euch ample monetary facilities as now exist for carrying ?took*, and so strong a speculative spirit, the prospect < Mild hardly be otherwise. At the open board at ten o'clock* New York Central eold at 104 a %, Erie to Reading 110%. Michigan Southern 8S1, Cleveland and Pittsburg 85% a %, Rock Inland 97^4, Northwestern 36%? preferred 65 %, Canton &1 V- At the first regular board New York Central closed 1 higher than at the lialf-pa.it two board yester day, Cumberland %, Western Uuton Telegraph %. Erie > losed 2S lower, Northwostern %? preferred %, Port Wayne % Government securities were dull- Coupon Ave- twenties of 1892 sold % lower than at the same time yesterday. Seven thirty notes were steady. At the one o'clock sessions the market was generally lower, owinp to sales to realise profits. At the half-past j two board it was strong again and Now York Central viosed % higher than at the first regular board, Erie 7? Michigan Central %, Northwestern %, Western t nion Telegraph %. Reading was % lower, North west ?ri? preferrod % Oovernment securities wore neglect* ?d, and the only transaction vw an unimportant one In a"Ton-thirty notes. At the balf-past three open board the market w.w dull but firm. New York Central sold at 105%, Erie 85 % ? %. Cleveland and Pitts burg 84%, Northwestern preferred 63, Canton &U Cumberland 48%, Wontem Union Tolegraph 441, Afterwards the markot remained firm, and at iiaif-past five tho following quotations were current: ? New York Central 10C a %, Erie 86% a %, Hudson River 1I5W| bid, Reading 110*, a %, Michigan Southern 83 a Cleveland and l'ittsliurg 84% a 85, Rock Island 97 % ? >?(, Northwestern 36,% a 88% ? preferred 6J a V, Port Wayne 99% ? %, Ohio and Mississippi certificates 28% a %, Canton 53 a % Tho loan market continues easy at five per cent, with a Tnw exceptions at four. First class commercial paper i? in limited supply anil passes readily at about six per cent the extreme rates being S'J ? J. Gold has been firm but dull, aud the supply of coin for delivery is becoming scarcer in proportion to the de mand. The leiuliug rate: varied from three per cent interest for carrying to l-32d per flem for borrowing Tho opening quotation was followed by an advance to 150% aud a relapse to 150 At tho close 150% was bid. Foreign exchange Is steady but inactive, and both buy en aud sellers show a disposition to await further news from Europe before doing more than they can avoid. Tlie leading drawers ask 100% for their bills at sixty days on England; but they are difficult of sale at this rate, and second hand they arc quoted at 109 % a %. Opinions among the Herman bankers are divided as to the extent of the future deinnnd for five-twenties abroad Md as to how far this will neutralize tho Important dif ference between the value of our imports and our ox ports now existing. The next few steamers will proba bly enable us to judge whether the war in Europe is to be a long or a short one, but in either <???* there will be litllo reason to anticipate any tli'ng but a firm market for gold and exchange for a -onsiderable time to come, taking all the condition3 affecti ng both into consideration. Bills on Berlin (th.'ilcre) are nominally 74% a 70%, on Bremen 77% a 79, ?i Amsterdam 40V a 41%, on Hamburg 36% a 37%. Mining and petroleum stocks were flat. At the first T> *rd BennehotT Klin Oil closed $1 50 lower than at < tie tame lime yesterday, Consolidated Gregory Gold 25*. KennehofF Run was 30c. higher, Smith k Varmclee tie At the second board Oenaehoff Run Oil closed 50c. lower than at the first board, soiling at |2; BennehofT Kun 75c., selling at $7. I'uited Slates told at $7 75, f-f* York Gold )1 10. Not long sinoe Uie Boards of Lwt-e Commissioners for the Slate of Louisiana and the Yam Valley district of Mississippi memorialized Congress for aid in the re construction of the levee* nn the Mississippi river, and a Miect committee was appointed by the Senate to report upon the matter. Tho committee have since reported <hat they are satisfied the people of these Slates ore unablu without aid from the government to undertake ?od complete the necessary repair*, as at present they fMaMSH neither labor nor money for the purpose, and witb overflowed lands and general pecuniary distress it is itn iwwwlble for them to command credit. The committee are, however, of opinion that the amount of aid to be granted should be limited to repairing, in an effective manner, those important breaches which are beyond the power of Individual or local effort, and hy the clot! a* ?f which large districts formerly cultivated may be rMRued from the floods uulil by one or more crops the planters may be able to provide for their own security. The committee propose to confido this work to the United States government engineers under the direction ot ihe War Department.

We are Indebted to the purser for file* of Havana papers and for forward - >??? our despatches from Vera Cruz, Havana, and the West ladies generally. A telegram trom the city of Mexico to a commercial house at Vara Crus announced that the Empress Carlotta would embark from Vera Crui direct for Europe on the lSth inst It wasalso reported in Vera Cms on the 9th that Tam plco had certaialyChUen into the hands or the liberals. The EttatftUt on the ailuation of Tamptco says that considerable forces of the army had collected before that city, and great fears are entertained for its safety. The Sociedai reports that Mejia had gone to take charge of the city. The Irit, of Tunpico, announces the arrival of the Frenoh iron clad gunboat sent from vera Crus to the aid of the naval forces thon at Tampico. Tamaulipas had b?n abandoned by the inhabitants on becoming aware of the approach of the liberals from Sierra. OUR ?TY OF MEXICO CORRESPONDENCE Ortr or lianoo, July 8, MM. roerxL mitts r obdbb in iuxioo. The Mexicans bare adopted tbe postal money order system of the United States, and a decree waa last week Issued making the offloes of the prioclpal cities order offices. The amount of any order U limited to twenty dollars. This will prore of Incalculable advantage la this country, where banks are almost unknown, bank bills unseen, and It ia only as a great fafor, and upon payment or a large premium, that orders or checks can be obtained of merchants in one oity upon those of an other. nxsioff *o a ijihui omnu'i winow. Last week the Kmperor confirmed the art of Jaarei, granting* pension to the widow of General Zarsgota, who fell while bravely repulsing tbe Frenob at Puebta In IMS. This act has caused no little commotion among both imperialists and liberals, and is looked upon by both parties aa something more than a mark of respect for a brave enemy, or an act of private benevolence. The French are particularly severe la their strictures, and tell tbe Emperor plainly that be need no longer hope to conciliate the Mexicans? he must conquer them; tbe day for gentle acts and kind words baa passed, and tbe time for severe blows aod hard work haa arrived. They say, instead of making friends among this people, armies ufcould be moving from point to point adminis tering quick aad effective blows, and breaking np the bands of liberals before they have time to oonoentrate. The whole cowatry ia endangered, aad nothing can save It but atern, decisive measures and military genius. On the other hand, the Utterals inquire how It is that a liberal's widow comesdo be pensioned t Waa her bus band fighting in the right cause? If so, the ceaolnsloa is plain that Maximilian has ne right here. If Zaragosa was wrong, then the iqjuatioe of rewarding his widow and reverencing his memory is the groater Alto f ether, the decree is considered to be a great blunder t satisfies nobody, save tbe recipient ef the peaaion and possibly her immediate family. KAXUHUJm'M LOTS Of jrtBTtm Aa occurrence recently took place which evinces one of the Emperot's noblest traits? Ins magnanimity and love of Justice? and the more deoervea notice from the private manner ia which It was done, aad the secrecy which wait enjoined upon the parties affected. Some weeks ago five young men of Guadalajara wore trieu by a court martin' for treason, convicted and sentenced to death, tbe sentonoe being first transmitted to the Em peror for approval. His Majeety, Instead of approving the sentence, commuted It to banishment for life to Yucatan, at the same time ordering the evidence In the case to be forwarded to him for examination. The five young men were accordingly manacled aad forwarded to this city en route for Yucatan. Hearing of their ar rival, tbe Emperor disguised himself aad visited the parties in prison, and from them learned their version of the aflkir. He afterwards carefully read over the testi mony given before the oourt martial, when he became n?t lulled of the innocence of the young men, whom he Immediately pardoned, not out ot clemency, hut. an he expremed It, as an aot of Justice. The young men were wholly ignorant of tho character of the person who visited tbem in prison and cheered them up with kind words, bnt they recogniied tbe Kmperor as he passed them ia his coach. Their gratitude knows no bounds, aad they never tire relating what passed between them and their illustrious visitor In tbe dirty prison cell, nor of the promptitude with which be ordered Justloe to be done la their case. auMoc* axqtaaawr. trader tbe constitution of the empire free toleration of all religion is guaranteed, aad thia liberty is every day noticeable when proceeeiona are moving through the streets aad Proteataata are no longer obliged to go upon their knees aad remain with heads uncovered until the image or host baa passed; but an old Hpaaiah law still remain* unrepealed which prohibits the sale of religious books or Bibles except such as are saactioaeu by the Catholic clergy. The Amenoaa Bible .Society has sstab Imhed several agencies la thia country, and have withia the last year disposed of large numbers of Bibles, which are of the King James version, without note or corn meat. This for a long time 'netted tbe ire of the priest hood, aad a long wordy war has besa progressing be tween them and the society's agent, who appears to have the beet of tbe affair, judging by what the liberal press say. Recently, however, tbe old law referred to has been raked up from among the rubbish of the past, and the society's works seised aad their stores closed In several cities. A Guadalajara Church paper callp the Riblt'S "Infernal works," aad congratulates the country upon its happy deliverance from such corrupt snd w, eked designs as actuated the American Bible Roclet*. The seiliag of Bibles has been somethiag of a monopoly In this country, and the American Biblea being offered very low? at one-third the price of the others? It excited the indignation of tbe padres, who finally overpowered their Yankee antagonists The agents in Uundal%)am and Pticbla were some time slace Imprisoned under this old Isw, but the Emperor immediately ordered their die charge In this city the agency appeara to flourtah ia spite of all opposition, aad tbe geaerai agent, Mr. Butler, is causing a commotion ia the country I<et him alone and be will yet defeet the bigots.

It Is reported that Zitaeuaro waa lately evacuated by the imperialist* and immediately afterwards occupied by the lilwrala from MicUoaian. under the command of R6gules, imna os thi racino stoa. Martinez (liberal) attacked Area, Sonora. on the lith, with a force of cavalry, and, acoorting to imperialist ac counts, was defeated. Martlnes then united with Ca cbora and Pesqueira, and remained sometime in Ban Martial, and afterward organised a new movement against Hermosillo. In the advance they made upon said place it is reported by the imperialists that Pes queira's oolumn waa met, fought and defeated br Gen oral Tauori, at Banoho del China At last accounts Gar cia Morales was on the American frontier tine, reoeiving supplies of arms and powder. It is said by the impe rialists that Oorona received at Allata six pieces of ar tillery, which were sent to him from San Francisco, California. A Frenchman writing from Quay mas under date of June 13 said (hat one of the effects of the last attack on Hermoelllo was that the inhabitants of the same had migrated to all parts. Nearly alt the partisans or the empire were refu Ci in Guaymas, while a portion of them were wander on the desert lands. Pesqueira, with his command, was all the time moving and raiding and keeping the imperialists exercised. Communication from Ouaymas with the principal cities ia the interior was nearly cut off The liberals had become so bold that they often raided in foil view of the fortifications or Guaymas, and still made good their escapes. The writer, in concluding his letter, remarked that the situation in Sonora at that time was quite critical. taTBBBaroo rao* mxwmoan. From L'Brt Ifouvei le, a newspaper published in French at the city of Mexloo, we translate the following From Michoacaa, where military operations seemed to have Sagged, we have seme later news, which shows that that State, instead or being a scene of quietude, is, on the oontrary, the centre or great activity. General Mendez (as was written to us on the 25th of June) had entered upon a ten days' campaign. He had eone to Zinapecuaro, a place situated at a distance of fourteen leagues from Morelia, on the high road to Mexico, where he expected to find four hundred zouaves, fifty hussars and two pieces of artllleir, and with which force he pro posed to move against the liberals. The writer said "They are actively occupied now in reorganizing our brigade. Alt the rural guards and auxiliaries are to be mustered out After they are mustered oat the best of the men will be ploked out and retaken Into the imperial service by being mustered into the regular army. Tbe Guanajuato battalion has been made a battalion or tbe line. It is now No. 12, and bears the name oC Cortasor. Colonel Hanta Cruz, of the Fourteenth cavalry, has gone to Celaya to buy horses te remount his command. By orders from Marshal Bazaioe the Michoacan brigade Is to be completely reorganized. For this reason it may be expected that General Mendoz will have to abandon for the time being his pursuit of the iiberaais. The people generally do not like to see the mustering out of the aux iliaries without entertaining grave doubts for the polioy of such a proceeding and fears for the well-being of the country or tboir neighborhood. It is by no means cer tain that those of the oflloeni so mustered out will not jota the liberals and raid through the oountry upon their own responsibility. Nevertheless, we know that the action is rendered accessary on account or the necessity there Is tor notable economy in the military department of the government. Vu&a Cmrs, July 8, 1866 m oabsuos at niu oaor viu ur ? d .is auto xorc ??NT IT UWUl OAT ALKT. Ob the day before yesterday the garrison of this city *u awakeuad by * body of liberal cavalry who made their appearance within tiro miles of the wails. In order to get a view oi them the citizens there went on the top of their houses and got on other prominent lookouts. About four o'clock in the afternoon n report was cir culated in the city that the two o'olook passenger train on the Imperial Railroad bad been captured, which created qaite a stir, as it was known that Colonel Bent feldt, the bearer of despatches from Vienna and BrwMels. aad the reported bearer or am autograph letter from Na poleon. was on the train; but subsequently the public curiosity was net at rest by the definite announce ment that the tram had reached Pase del Macho, the present terminus of the road, in safety. Nevertheless, as the liberals oontinued to remain in full view from the city, two howitaers and eom? sailors were leaded from the Front* vessels in Ue uaroor ana seat outside tbe walls and kept there over night, while the Egyptian to Idlers were deployed aad kept ready for an engagement. During the night it rained heavily, and ao nest morning the liberals were wm tut inventus Be fore they went away tboy stole about sixty mules and took some other property from the citizens. It is said tbat tbey moved down in this nsighhorhood in search of borMS. mu 1m and cattla Subeequently it leaked oat, notwithstanding the reti cence of the railroad offloers, tbat a detachment of the liberal cavalry moved to the railroad line, at a point near Boledad, and carried off as prisoners a few employes and alt the tools they could find. It Is feared that they will use tbe tools to pull up the track. Before they weal sway they pat a wheelbarrow between the trades as a "oard," to show that tbey had been there. Of late the liberals have been ratber annoying on the railroad liae. Not long since they found a party of re Mirers out, caaght and robbed them, and sent them home it the eingle article of the "short, white robe. " Yesterday matters were tolerably quiet. Nevertheless, tbe liberal cavalry were known to have remained all day at Talari*. a small town situated at a distance of sis miles from Vrr* Crui What they were after was a matter of serious sunn lee on the pert of the imperialists. 8ome thought they ware m communication with agent* or splss within tbe walls or this city, or waiting Ibr dee patcbss from Joarez to the liberal general in command ef this department, which dee patches were thought to have arrived on the steamer Manhattan. Last evening tbe Martinique soldiers were pat en garri son duty in the eity, and the oontra goerillee sad Egyptians sent oat. This fere advanoed about two miles, deployed, reooenottred aad sabaequeally returned. The liberals were found to be scattered about generally la detach meats, bat within supporting distance of each other. One party was oa three sides of Ta}arla, aad in a measure Winging the post. Another party was oa the Medellia Railroad line, just beyond Ihs (uaetioo. What they were particularly doing there wo did not leara They eeeaed, though, to be quite at home, aad holding their poeitlou with unmistakable mo gfraid. There are many speculations as to lbs causs of tbe liberals manifesting such a bold spirit in this direction just at this time, some say that they are demonstrating so ss to k eep reinforcements from being eent to Tamptco, aad to draw off troopa from other parts. Others say that they are going te make a daah and try aad capture the $600,000 in specie which is expected to arrive here to morrow, to go by the next f reach mall steamer, or tha $1,560,000 which is reported on its way to Vera Cms, and wnkch. It Is said, will be here la t few days. XEW8PAFKK ACCOCTHTS French Opinion* I sscerslsi Iks Kvacaatioa sf INataasrss.

T (banked Beaven when I got beyond the imperial dominion* of their High Mightiness of Camden and Am boy. 1 bar* fait the influence of tha secret polica at W?rs?w, I have read of the Fetish power in Africa, bat never hare I conceived of aueh a grand Mum bo Jumbo as that mysterious organisation known in the annate of Jersey as the Camden and Amboy. The names of tbooe Insignificant little villages cwrci.se such a mystical effect on the Jersey mind that they seem to strike it with sud den hopelessness and despair. According to the local opinion on the subject, the Czar of Bussia, tha Khan o t Tartary, and even the Ineffable King oftSiam are all aa a mere nothing before the potent and mysterious Camda* and Amboy. To question it te high treason, to daunt it Is a sign of moral obliquity, and to oppose it h certaia destruction. This paragon of monopolies seems to have taken possession of the land, ana casts lis shadow every where. It has the tCamden and Amboy proper, it owns the West Jersey, it controls the Central, and has tnte rests in almost every road in the State. Its power reaches even unto the capital of the nation, and hi the lobbies of Washington Its name is like ant* a host It defeats opposing project*, controls elec tions and keeps New Jersey under Its Iron thumb. Bat with all their serene magnificence .the Camden and Amboy authorities might benefit themselves and the public by pursuing a mild suggestion. If they would merely condeeoend to establish a train from Camden to I cape Island, to connect with tha train from Mew Tor*, they would facilitate the travel to (his place, and, by in creasing the traffic, enlarge their receipts, be of Invalua ble service to the island, and relieve the public from a serious inconvenience. There is another bumble peti tion which I would like to prefer at the court of tho great railiray Mogul It is tbat the agents of the accideot life insurance companies ? doubtless very good people and acting for a very laudable object ? be prevented f n>aa pursuing their trade while the cars are In mot 'on. It may be very refreshing to know tho exact mathe matical chances of your death, to be told that five Coent is really a very moderate premium on your m noe, and all Ails Just at the moment when tbe train la 1 Riving one of its torrido jars. I protest against this sys tem as an unfair mode of dealing , it Is, iu fact, frighten ing a man Into bAboralng a patron of tbe company. I have had these gentry Inform me, with perfect n ?nr.ha lance, that every person In the cur save mr valuable eelf had been fully insured for tjie benefit of his widow an< children. You might Just as well tell a passenger o* board ship that all nis fellow voyagers are fully equipped with life preservers, and the time has com> to take can of himself. It is gettiag business under false pretencsiL and I sincerely hope that tbe Camden and Amboy don't participate in tbe profits. rna situation on thi tsuvn. To-night wa are to have two grand hops, at tbe CeJuaa bia Bouse and Congress Ball These entertainment* will mark the acme of tbe season, and until the end of August tbe Cape will be the rage at Baltimore and 1'HI* dolphia. They want something to enliven them here. At tbe most ohari table computation they are rather do cile. In fact, having understood tbat Philadelphia waa famous for Its strait-Jacket Institutions, I opined that some of the Cape Mayers bad not yet reloased theat selves from tbe rectilinear influence of tbat peculiar vestment. Again, I thought of the Autocrat of the Breakfast Table, and it aeemsd to mo that some of bis eccentric characters had been transported to tbe seasMa. We require aome of tbe vim and aiyle of the New Ysrk watering places, or even a consignment from Lout Branch would improve tbe tone here very much. I dull mean to imply that we are are net all that primness and propriety and even prudlshness could demand; it .s just I towards this extreme that we lean. My statement tbat we are going to bavs two hops on the same oi^bt might * invalidate tbe subsequent charge; but there Is an inna cribable aomething, or, as tbe French have it to perfeo tion, there la a chu/ne ? a metropolian cAk/u* ? in whloh we are aadly wanting. Tbe train is, we aru undnr Qua kor tafluonee, and, with all due respect to tbat n-niablt sect, it is not exactly fitted to contribute to tbo gayeW and brilliancy of a watering plane.
