Up to two o'clock yes terday the telegraph reported the follow irjr i-ripps at dilTereut hours: 114,113$ 114,; here brokers were paying for g ki llJfo.llSJ. The New York Bulletin Myn : "In the gold room there was some little excitement, by reason of a decline in the price. This was immediately caused by the unloading of a number tf weakeper ulatois, and, indirectly, bydis pstrbes from Washington reiterating the iletermication of the treasury to sell new live percent, bonds in excess of the55Uu (xei (KM authorized by the funding act of Js7 for the purpoee of getting silver with which to supplant the fractional currency. How this csn forward specie p3yru tits is uot understood, but it had as good an ellect as if it were clearly an aid to that inuch-C"e3;red end. In the afternoon it was announced that Secre tary Bristow had issued another call for Slo ot;u 000 5 20 bonds, interest to cease o.uotwr 14th, the call having been made attherequestof the syndicate sell ing new lives." The fillowing European news shows the ellects of the English liaufcrupticiea: "The .London and Westminster bank, the next largest in KtitoUon in London to the bank of Eng land, lias reduced its dividend from 20 per cent. pT annum to 10 per cent, per Hunuai. Their lo3ie3 on bad bills, etc., owing to recent failures, have used up half thf ir reserve fund. Other leading hanks have suilt-red seveiely of late in ntnilarcauses; but it is some satis faction to know that the bulk of the large failures has fa'lon upon institutions so well able to meet the losses." Ex chan onntinues very dull at unchanged rates. Yesterday we ropied the following: "The New Yolk Chron st of July 1st, saya the Hamburg and Bremen lire insurance company claiine, lu its advertisements, to have $2,000,000 auets. but its returns to the State of New ork show only $323,400 paid up, with $1 SI, 663 surplus " We leara from the respected agents of the company in tbis oity that tM paragraph conveys a wrong impression, because it gives only part of the fact. The company's card gives total aeetain the United States at i4'j, but claims a total of "capital and a- -umulations" of $2,000,030; the balance ia then fore held in Europe. In local securities we heard only of the sale of 20K) Ktate notes at SO; we quote 6S 30, fire and police, 88; school notes, 8Sg) oil Hlielby county scrip, 7475. TlIF COTTON MARKET Was without ue point of interest yesterday- Ke cc'p were trivial, the stock sunk to be low 4u:ii baits; New York sunk to 15c i j Liverpool to 0 15 16J, while gold -s down to 113$.

We hopa to hear that the era has come when the rich and the poor alike can attend divine worship without being subjects of criticism, either in admira tion or contempt. Hear Will Hays: "When you hear the little bell in the steeple on top of our Poorman's mectin' house sending forth its cheerful aud in viting music you may be satisfied it means, 'Come to meetin.' Wbeu y u go, and you see tho preacher put on hia specs, open the 'singin' book,' and 'line out' the old familiar hymn: 'Amazing grace, how sweet the sound To imca a worm as I' Sing, you may rest assured that his whole heart and soul is happy when he sees 'poor, needy sinners' in that little meetin'-house throw their heads back and all sing as if the Lord was deaf and tho angels were asleep. When tho man of God' saya: 'Let ns pray' you musn't be too proud or stiff to bend your knees or bow your heads in humble pen itence. You needn't ba afraid of occu pying another man's seat. If you have no coat go in your shirtsleeves; never iet clothes keep you away. It is the soul that God is after, and not your clothes. When the doors of that little bethel are thrown open, they are opened to the poor as well aa the rich, and wo want ycu to feel that it is your privilege to go there and enjoy the benefits of a poor man's meetin'-hoose, and not a rich man's church.
