FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
Fkipay, August 13?0 P. K.
The money market continues to work freely at six
and scveu per ceut, and was distinguished to-day by
large ottering* to government bouse* at the lower
figure Seven per cent continues to be the ruling
rate with the banks and stock tionses, with an abundant
supply ot currency, i&tner in excess of the demand.
Shipments to the flonthwest continue on a
moderate scale; tmt with returns from other quarters
and the extraordinary Treasury disburse
im-ilia promised on hood pnrehasea but little
appielieurioh is r<-it of any greater atitn*
fcucy. at all events for the balance of
this month. What Urn lutnre condition ol the money
matKet may be when Secretary flout well una completed
his operations, at- announced, Is exciting
cciihMleiobie aiteution, and tut U will greatly depend
upon his course some anxiety is felt to learn his Intentions
or proposed oealinsrs for .September and the
?uc< ceding months. It 13 very generally fell that tn
a matter liko this, where oil classes of business nton
arc so dUci tiy interested, and where the publication
could not possibly result to the tajttry of the government,
that the oxireme ret'ceucu ol Mr. Uoutweil
In regard to his policy Is uncalled for
and unfair to the public. The complaint
Is made that tho Secretary seems to
regard t Imspublic as one party and the government
as another, between whom there is no reciprocity,
and tlt.u be, as the agent of the sovernment, t?
charged with the duty of guarding iU financial
policy In secrecy and enveloping lis operations tn
m ystery, lest it be overreached by the rtval public.
This is certainly a mlstaKes The government and
people are one touching all questions relating to the
Uunaclal condiliou of the country. Their Interests
are Identical and should lie dealt with in bar
mony, On questions of national policy looking
to groat changes tn financial administration
t!ie> may bold different views, bat In regard
to Hie Dimple working of the department,
the balancing and adjusting of monetary dutenrbances,
whoa the treasury commit* itself to Interference
with tbe conr*e of exchangee the government
and the business men of the country have but tbe
Buino interest, being both equally desirous of maintaining
a bcalthrui condition of tlio money market.
I As the beet experience and ripest Judgment of our
merchants and financiers aro always at the command
of an; administration, to aid It in the solution
or whatever financial problem may eall for tho advice
of practical men, and all the knowledge
they possess of value in sucli connection
freely at Its disposal, thin childish
effort at mystification on the part of Secretary
Bout well, which serves no goo* purpose,
and distracts men of enterprise, Introducing an additional
element of uncertainty Into their cumulation#
worse tnan all the other chances they have to
propare for, la not only ontalde the spirit of our Institutions,
but both nngcoeroue and unjust, perplexing
most those who are most entitled to the very
opposite consideration. It is no, even enarged thai
Mr. lioutwell intends to bo thus offensive, and, with
the same Indulgence that other errors of bis have
been reoived, it ts rewuiy explained as a
conBcquonco of bis Inexperience. Without any
previous training la fiuunciat matters of a
practical nanre it is felt tliai He quite possibly does
not-comprehend tlie perplexity that may arise from
a want uI knowledge in regard to bis future action,
unq. aliows bluiseli tue opportunity of changing bis
mind regarding that action, If it lias even been made
up, by not giving it publicity. SucU on excuse Dae
served dating the dull season; nut with the opening
of Uw tali and the inception of the grain and cotton
movements, producing gravo changes In the monetary
situation, "oineilung more la wanted man a disposition
on the part of the Secretary to act as occasion
may In Ills judgment require,or an assurance that
be will be guided by circumstances and operate only
fortbe boat interests of the government, without,
prejadloe to any class or individual. Preparation#
have now to be made to meet the possible chances
of Hie moBtty market during the coming fall and
iv lutes, and U Is important to ltnow what Mr. Boutwell
intends doing during that period. Has be
made up bis mind and will be speak Uf Commercial

taaces arc current at high sates, nmo and tec

NKwroKT, August 18,1888.
IMta thai alertness which throughout the crutsg

anchors were weighed this morning at half-past
seven o'clock, the signal gun from the Phantom earing
warned the yacht* to depart, and no doubl
Hut ting from repose the drowsy fashionables around
me mil*. The sound echoed lar and wide, and perhaps
long ere many a sieepy lounger had time ta
matter an indignant growl the gallant fleet had
spread its snowy canvas to the wind, it was a bright
and Itesntliul morning, most auspicious and agreeable.
The yachts kept well together for some tima(
but when a utile or so from the harbor, from wkiclt
ttiey rushed like race horses, they began to part company
and were shortly lost to view.
The reception of tho squadron at Newport wag
marked by the usual circumstances which annnalij
surround their advent at this favorite watering
place. Numerous private invitations were tendered
to the officers, wlitle the gorgeous saloons of tkf
yachts were visited by many guests. There was nfl
public demonstration of any kind, though it Is atmod,
needless to say that the inbabttauts fell
honored by the visit of the fleet, ft would be wett,
however, if the authorities of the city were mora
alive to the occasion, and aroused themselves front
their dormant condition, from which the friendly
salutes of the squadron seem ouable to eaineam
them. They should understand that the advent og
the New York Yacht Squadron la matter of importance,
und should most UeartUy express their acknowledgements
by suitable tokens of appreciation.
A word to the wtse is sufficient.
A number of the yachts telt yesterday, including
the uamtner, Mangle, Alice, Widgeon. Uracie and
Madeline, the last mentioned on a flsiuug excursion
to Uo.aies' Hole. Moat of them will join the squudrog
at New liedford, where a spienuld reception awaits
the club, and a grand display is comldontly antic*
pated. r-everal of the schooners went our yesterday
on short cruises with pleasure panics and returned
about noon. In the evening Hie officers were enterlamed
by Mr. Malihiu Mnids, and a reception was
held at his residence near tlc tovue avenue. Commodore
Meobins and a large number of trie rueraberi
of ibe club attended, it was quite an agreeable and
taslironable affair, several of the principal rcsudentg
having been invited to be present ou tnc occasion.
And now a word or two about the season at Newport.
Candidly, ti lias been a dull oue. To be surg
