Business continues to Improve, and
the more hopeful feeling which has ap
peared In one or two departments of
trade has extended to neatly all
branches, and their Is much less appre
hension of a long continued depression
than was expected a few days ago; con
sumers are buying mom freely nnd the
Eluinkngo In pi ices of many articles has
apparently leached a point where a
reaction may be expected to set In. So
say our city exchanges.

004,012, pompared with $130,800,090
for the previous, year a decreaso of
$17,380,084. The great source of reve

on banks and bankers yielded $3,771,
031 a decreaso of nearly a million.
Had there not been a repeal by Con
gress of various stamp taxes and other
Internal duties, this branch of revenue
would havo yielded an Increased aggre;
gate over tho previous year. Tho rev
enuo from stamps was cut down over
eight millions yielding $7,130,933;
whilst the miscellaneous Imposts, which
have all been repealed, paid during the

Two additional circumstances of im

The second number of Scrlbner's now

nnd as full of good things as the first
Issue In fact, It contains more matter
and pictures, for It has eight additional
pages. There me forty-four pictures
this month, and they Includo drawings
by Mornn (who contributes a very effee
tlve frontispiece), Stephens, Sheppard,
.Beard, and other American artists.
There are sis wounderfully funny
pictures of learned cats, and the article
which describes them Is lively as the
cats. A curious picture of a giant ex
amining a mau through a microscope;
one of a sailor dancing with white bears;
and another of a courageous youth
riding a whale Into port, will excite the
curiosity of every real boy nnd girl.
"The Giant Wntabore" Is a capital hit
at certain follies, and will bo appreciat
ed by the older readers of the magazine.
"The Yellow Cottage" Is an exquisite
little poem, iiy Marlon Douglass. The
.dreams of gUlhood are seldom more
.delicately told than In these verses. C,

tions of boys and bird?; nnd "Jack-In-Iho-Pnlplt,"
who is fwst becoming a
general favorite, lias a fund of lively
tnd ,utf u) matter to talk about. The
page for llttlo folks Is very ijood this

" Tho Philadelphia Ledger of Wednes
day, 3ayn : " Yesterday was tho 18th
day of Novemner, exactly two months
from tho tlmo of tbo falluro of Jay
Conko & 'Jo., followed closely by tho
failure of several other large banking
houses, banks and trust companies.
Jany millions of dollars were involved
In these failures, and not n few millions
In market values were swept out of ex
istence. Hundreds havo been carried
to Irretrievable ruin, nnd great pecuni
ary distress has been Imposed upon
thousands who had felt reasonably se
cure In n competenco for life. Tho In
dustrial Interests of tho country havo
felt n severe shock, but so vast Is our
wealth nnd so vigorous the enterprise
that characterises almost every depart
ment of Industry, wo nro already, In
lhee two shot t months, fast assuming
our normal condition, and In two months
more trade and credit will havo been so
nearly established as to leavo scarcely n
trace of tho crisis that seemed for the
time so formidable nnd its couoiquences
tlueatened to be so lastlnc. The finan
cial position Is much Improved. Money
s In easy command nnd nt moderate
rates. The banks nre nil paying out
freely of currency, so that almost all
premium upon it Is lost. Traffic of all
kind3 is reviving, a suro evldenco that
prices for tho present havo generally
touched their lowest point. Tho Iron
workers nnd the manufacturers of all
sorts who had shut their doors upon
their thousands of employes are In some
cases recalling them, and the tono and
temper all around Indicates n cheerful
ness that cannot fall to utterly dispel
all apprehension of want or distress.
There Is not only an Improvement In
tho amount of business doing, but there
Is an assured fcellue that there will bo
no going back on tho advance made.
The cotton and Western produco mark
ets are gradually emerging from the de
pression they suffered a fortnight ago,
nnd with a good market abroad will bo
found an admirable support for all home
Interests. Stock prices are also greatly
assured, so that a manifest ' bull Inter
est In most securities Is now recognized
In a most all stock markets. Let the
reader but compare the prices with
those current a fortnight ago and note
the advance hre for comparison with
prices two months to come."
