FiXUtCE 'AND TRADE Honey Is in increasing demand, and it c.mai from all classes of business men; the want of money la regarded as a ccrtrln iudieatlou of approaching movement lu business; all who have tho nece-sary qualifications find curren cy within their reach.

"Operations of this kind may be looked for whenever the markets even temporarily offer tne chance, but they In no way change the malu cur rent of becuritiea from Europe to New York, aud until that current is turned there Is uo substantial reason for looking ur permanently lower goiu or ex change " The New York Tribune f-aya tjat while gold has recently sharply ad- v-iuceu, mere waj probably never a time, aincagald has commauded a premium, when the rate of gold was as of little commercial Importance.

It was fair, honorable and eqltable. The committee and recorders were ot our very bfst citizens, and kindly gave their time and labor to the superintendence of the drawing, or rather did the actual tabor of It. Captain Foster has acted honorably and fairly throughout tbe whole management of this enterprise. While some money has been made by the venture In all probability, yet the property given as prizes has only netted a fair price, and tbe profit Is only an exohange of the proporty for cash."

Captain f oster said that while he wished all bis home peopl good luck, he yet was free to say that with the people of poor Mississippi, Louisiana and South Carolina, he felt a greater sympathy, and he did hope they would draw the largest number of prizes, that they might come to a free country, and make a white man's living.
