FINANCE AND TRADE. OUR cotton market review at tho conclusion of last week gave the price of middling cotton in New York at 16e; , an advance of c on the week before that; the week just ended saw a still further advance; on Tuesday the qupta tion was 16jc,and next day,and through out the remainder of the week 16 Jc, ex cept Saturday, when 16c was reached. An advance during the week ofc New Orleans a week ago quoted 15, which ou Monday advauceti to 15Jc, on Tues day to 16c, and on Wednesday to 16Jc; thte was getting on too fast, however, and on Thursday 16J16Jc was quoted, and on Friday and Saturday 16Jc, leav ing an advance of Jc on the whole week. Liverpool 7J(a8d at the conclusion of o-ur last review on Tues day it advanced Sd; on "Wednesday to 8Sil, on Thursday to 8d, and on Sat urday toSJQSJd, an advance during the week of d. In Memphis the quotation a week ago was 15Jc; on Tuesday 15Jc, on Thursday and during the re mainder of the week 15Jc. An advance of ic during the week. This exhibit shows that the advance, which com menced in cotton a week ago, has "held its own" and gone beyond it, a very gratifying fact to many holders of cot ton whose prospects apD?ared, at the opening of the month, to be einking. So closely do receipts and prices march hand in hand that we need not say a narrowing down of receipts caused the change. The receipts at the seaports up to Friday were, for the week, 66,722 against 74,198 the cerresponding week last year, a decrease of 7473 bales; the total receipts were 3,277,260 against 2, 954.873 at the same time a year ago; an increase of 322,397 bales.

Esti mates of the whole crop appear gener ally to lie between 4,100,000 and 4,250, OW b≤ as the last computation agrees with the figures of the New York Citron uAe, it has many bupporters. The New York market during the week has been skittish and uncertain; there have been official and unofficial quotations, and buyers and sellers apart, and other signs of vacillation. New Orleans became very confident, but was unable to sup jport its pretensions. .Liverpool has a&sftdily and handsomely advanced, sbowiug the strong position American occupies in that market, spite of the in crease iu estimates of crop. This posi iion of Liverpool has been the best sup port oar Memphis market has had dur ltg Uie week, for the exporters have taken more eotton than the spinners. It is observable, also, that American cotton gains in favor more and more among Ettglteh spinners. Many of our read era will remember that, since the war, English writers have boasted raoeh about Egyptian-grown cotton, :&ud have given the idea that, as a whole erop, the Egyptian was better than the .Amerioan. Now, however, we read in iSmith, Edwards & Co.'s Liverpool cir Milar: "Egyptian cotton has been very unsaleable of late, and has sustained a serious decline, the stock is heavy, the crop has exceeded expectation, the fine spiuuiug trade is poor, and all this com bined has greatly depressed the market" Ttie fearful famine, now existing in the East Indies, has an unhappy influence oipon the market; the above named cir cular says: "For several months the abipments to Calcutta have shown a lliarKMl ialling OU, DUl oumuay uaa ic- osived a corresponding surplus, and has fceen forced over lower than the other market Nothing could be more dis couraging to shippers than the accounts from Iuiia, and there se?ms little hope 4rf improvement till after the next mon soon, when, if there is a good raiufnU, emauti will revive in anticipation of better times." This is bad for the man ufacturing trade of Manchester. Anoth er extract from the same circular is of a nature to gratify the American cot ton grower: "Yarn made from good American cotton sells far better than that made from inferior growths. The trade seems to be going back more to the state of things tuatexisted before the A merioan war. when price was not the uly thing looked to, but a good reputa tieU for honest production was valued, :aua brought its reward. It is much to fce hoped that the change will be per manent', for the good name of this wviii-try and the future prospects of the JCton trade." The New York Bulletin of Mar 19th had tho lowing: "There W" firm markfet ror cotton on the spot, wlt a fiker and excited mar ket in Liverpo For future delivery theiewasaJeciu -d advance, based on the strong market in j-iyerpool and an ticipations of light ret eiP13 at Prta The advance in the latter .months was especially noticeable, and buJlnesj was moreaetive.

This has caused a decided reaction, and prices have ad vanced in the leading markets in the United States, Liverpool also respond ing.

With the advance in lard, the export demand ceased, and it has fluctuated ic during the week, the bulk of the trade being speculative. Pork is BtJIl the fancy gambling article, and is ,?manipulated in speculative hands very much to suit tuemseives. it remaineu quite steady until within a day or two, when It advanced 35c per barrel, and fluctuated from that point 10c to 20c. Foreign exports continue to decrease as compared with the exports of last season to date, consequently home stocks are not diminishing rapidly enough to war rant much advance in price, unless an extraordinary home consumptive demand sets in soon." In the whole sale jobbing trade there is some improvement, but nothing like a smart spring trade. We have no changes of prices to report, there is not business do ing to predicate changes upon. Boots and shoes, dry goods, drugs, etc., are a little more active, but the merchants confine operations to cash transactions.

The evidence going ' to show that the killing of Henry Coleman was not intentional (ho being some distance from the party shot at) a charge ot man slaughter was, brought . in. by the coroner The NeW Orleans" Times of the twenty-second eays, editorially: "We are rather pleased to hear oy telegram, that the 'British man-of-war 'Niobe' has arrived at the port of New Yorlr, and that her, spunky commander,, Captain Lorraine,, ia to be. tendered the freedom of that great me tropolis, as an acknowledgmont of the appreciation by our people of his noble and humane interposition, and energetic protest against the cruel massacre of Americans taken from on board the "Virginius by Spanirda in authority at Santiago de Cuba. That commander, acted in sym pathetic unison with British sentiment and' feeling. This is evidenced by the fact that, since that nfl'air, his govern ment has thought fit to honor himwith promotion, a reward which he, has most justly deserved, and we delight to put tho fact on record.1' Cincinnati Com mercial, twenty-second i "A colored deck passenger on the James-D. Parker, named DavidMason, fell overboard, and, in SDite of the.active efforts to save him, was drowned, while the boat was taking on lumber, at the mouth of the Obion river.' He was" from Memphis, Tennes see Nick Wiseman, a rouster on the Kilgour, rell overboard ..at theJSvansville wharf,7an"d was drowned. He shipped at Cincinnati last trip, and was one of their be3t men. Every effort was made to save him." This is the latest from the Pittsburg Commercial man: "Cap tain Batchelor, of the Mollie Ebert, tells a gocd joke on the veteran Pat Yore r It was about the year 1837 that the Ara go and Brighton were lying- at Wheel ing, Virginia, waiting the arrivals of the s ages in order to get the passengers go ing south. When the stages arrived, there was a sharp competition be tween "the. two boats for the people. Captain Yore represented the Brighton, and Captain Batchelor the Arago. The Arago was the fastest boat, which fact Captain Batchelor uiged upon thepasseugers as an inducement for them, w take passage on her. Cap tain Yore seeing he was about to be beat out of the people, resorted to. a bit of strategy which had the desired effect It was this: The Arago had but one chimney and the Brighton had two. Going up to the crowd, Captain Yore said: "Ladies and gentlemen. you see that that boat has only one chimney, does it stand to reason she can outrun a boat with two chimneys?' They all agreed it didn't, and went aboard the Brighton. Soon after both boats shoved out, and sure enough the Arago passed tne xJngnton under way, anu as a matter of course the passengers asked CaptainYore how it waa that he had misrepresented facta to them. 'Yon see,' said Captain Yore, with a confi dential wink, 'you see, we have too many passengers on board to snove tnis boat; we're afraid it might blowherup." This was satisfactory to the passengers, but Batchelor says Captain lore's two chimneys gave him the worse shake he ever got in his life." KAILROAJ) TME TABLES.
