FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
Sospat, August 26, 1HM. Tha speculation for a ri'e on the Stoik Exchange con tinued rstlier active fait we :k, but the market fluctuated at icler\als rotlier epajmuUically. The general tendency of nrices Id unmistakably upward, and ibis will bu still more strengthened by tbe extreme monetary ease re sult tig from the heavy di: bursementa of the Treasury in redemption of the. temporary loan. On Saturday the supply of capital wua largely in excess of the demand at four per rent, and this con dition of monetary affairs is likely 19 l>e prolonged. The speculation in government securities cloned buoy nut; but these have u'.roady udvauced so far that they invite a reaction. The stock market elo^d firm on Saturday, and tbe quotations at Ave o'clock wort as uuder: ? New York Central 102% a 103, Erie 73% a % (aftor previously soil ing as high as 74%), Heading 115% a %, Michigan South ern 85% a %, Illinois Central 123% a %, Cloveland and lltUburg 87 a %, Clevclund and Toledo 116% a 110, Koek Island 109',' a %, Northwestern 36% a 37 ? pre ferred 68 >? a %, Fort Wayne 105 a %, Ohio and Missis sippi certificates 29 X a %, Cumberland 47% a %, Quick silver 50' , a %, Mariposa preferred 28 a 27. The effect ot the disbursements in redemption of the live por cent temporary loan ? the interest on which i eases to-day? will be felt all over the country; as, ao cord ng to a despatch from Washington, tbey will aggre gate more tban sixty-eight millions, while only thirty four millions of the amount will bo payable at the Sub- i Treasury in this city. Thus, tho Western money markets will be largely supplied at the same time that tho glut here Is increased. During the last week the de mand for monoy at tho Western centros to move the crops has bocn quickening, and a ll^ht drain from tho Kast bas sot in. At Cbicogo first class paper Is dis counted freely at ten per ccnt, b it inferior grudos are not in favor at tbo banks, which aro pursuing a conserva tive policy in order tho better to prepare themselves to meet the drafts of th'jir country depositors during tbe next thirty days. These are already cnecklug to a con siderable extent upon their baluncos there. Exchange on New York varied at the close of the vrook from 50c. to $1 10 discount, buying, with excep tions at par, and 50c. a $1 10 premium, selling with exceptions also at par to good cu -tomers. If we add to the a.nonnt to be disbursed on acoount of the temporary loan the interest ( $l0,!)5G,(i0l? due on tho 1st instant on tbo fsevon-thiity loan, ?e flud tliat tbe total amount of currency payable by the Irons ry tins mouth Is about eighty millions. A portion of this will bo in national bank notes; but these w.ii occasion no incotiveuloticc, a., they can bo as readily employed in the West as legal lomlcrs. The gold market was unsettled and somewhat excitod during the week in consequence of tho operations of a clique form Ml to make gold scarce and run tho prico up three or four per cent. The m nus operandi was obvious enough. A lew firms agreed among each other to buy ijold and not to lend it for a certain time. They also borrowed gold largely, and locked it up In the same manner, (laid as a natural rosult became scarce In tho street, and the rate for loans advanced as high as one por cent per Miom. In muny cases the "sborU" paid this d'irorouce in default or delivery without borrowing tho gold at nil. The price touched 151. but beyond this there was no at lempt mode to enforce iL Tbe bull clique began to lend s portion of their gold at % a 1 por cent per diem, and this continued un'll Friday morning, when the "oornor" turned, the clique having sold out, and on Saturday coin wns so abundant that loans were made without interest and tho price declined to 147, tho lato bulls having meanwhile accelerated tho fall to the host of thoir ability, with a viow to buying in again and ropcating tho l?erformauoo. Tho daily rauge of tho market is thus shown : ? Iliqhesf. Limtl. Moudav 148% IIS'1* Tuesday 148 '? 147 ^ Wednesday 149% 147% Thursday 1H J40% Friday 150% 122** Saturday 147% 147 The demand for customs dut es at this port amounted to $3,167,000. Tho export ot three-quarters of a million ?was chiefly In gold and silver bars. The telegraph has advised us of tho shipment from England to thlsco intry of ?100,000 in specie by tho Allemannia and 4110 000 by tho Scotia, but these importations aro probably made for speculative effect by the bears in gold and arc not likely t,i continue, for llio reason that they aro not justified by the actual condition of our foreign trade. Moroovor, the drain would very soon recelvo a check on tho other wide by the refusal of the hanks to discount for houses engaged in shipping upecio, or If It threatened to become serious by an |idvance in the Dank of Kugland rate of discount. Tlia abnormally low ratos of exchange, resulting mainly from the heavy specu lative export of flvo-twontles, render Importations of specie profitable to the oxtont or nearly two per cen?, there being that much difference betwoen tbe price of bills and gold, and the tolegraph facilitates operations on a trifling margin for pr .fit between tho two countries. This condition of things can hardly be of long conllnu auce, and the more gold we import and the more bonds we export] the greater will be tho subscqnent drain of specie to which we shall be liable. The export of our securities on so largo a scale Is rife with elements of danger, whieh should not be overlooked. For bills on England at sixty days the loading drawers asked at tbe end or tbc week 107%, and for those at short sight I OS; but second hand good bills wore quoted at 1041 ' . a 107 and 107 a %, respectively. A sensational cable despatch from Paris to the Aaso riaied Press was received yesterday stating that "an im mense demand has sprung up in this city for I'niled States Sve-twenties, and heavy orders for supplies have l>?ea telegraphed to / lerlcan agents," Ac. This Is clearly a tolegram in ti * interest or speculators lor a rise In government aecui ies on this side, and probably ?.f some who are also desirous of making a tnsrket for them In France, and ot selling out their stock in consequonce to better advantage 'I he slender foundation which the telegram bas in trutTi may be judgod from tbe fact that Ave twenties have not yet |,e->n admitted to tho Paris Bourse, and such Is the pre* em condition ef affairs there now that if they were '? an Immense demand " would hardly bo lik'-ly to arise at II, ? instant of their introduction. Probably dealings in our bonds Will be allovrod on tbe I'arls ltourse before long, but this affords no excuse for misleading the public liere, especially when tho motive U obviously one of personal profit. No sooner had the telegram reached the city on Saturday than flve-twentlcs advanced from 111%, the price at which they sold al the regular l>oard, to l|2a l4, apparently under the Influence of parties wl.ese agent in Knrope had caused the telegram in ques tion lo 1h* sent, and who are sanguine that prices can I* stimulated still higher. At the present prk* of tbe b inds here and is London, however, Uielr export would b? nil profitable, and they must either advance abroad or decline at home or gold must rise before it < ?n l>c made profitable.

Of course all bands were pot on abort allowance at onoe. The day tbey set sail from the ship each man was allowed a small morsel of salt pork? or a little piece or potato, if he preferred it? and half a sea biscuit three times a day. To understand bow very light this ration of bread was, It is only neceseary to know that U takes seven of these sea blsculta to weigh a pound. The first two days tbey only allowed one giU of water a day to each man; but for nearly a fortnight after that the weather was lowering and stormy, and frequent rata squalls occurred The rain was caught In oanvas, ana whenever there was a shower tbe forty gallon cask Mid every other vessel that would hold water was Oiled even all tbe boots that wore water-tight were pressed into this service, except such as tbe matches and tobacco were deposited In to keep dry.

Also, during the flrvt twelve or fifteen days, each man bad ono spoou ful of brandy a day ; then It gave out. This day, as one of the men was gazing across the dull waste of waters as usual, he saw a Mnall, dark object rising ami falling upon the waves He called attention to It, and in a moment every eye was bent upon It In In tensest interest.

At eleven o'clock In the forenoon the boat* were all cast loose from each other, and then, as friends part from friends whom tliey expert to meet no more ii. fir-, all bauds hailed with a frrvent "Ood Mess von boys; good-hy!' and the two cherished sails drilled away and disappeared front the Joiig ng gaze lhat lol lowed tbem to sorrowtullyr "T J ^ ...
