FiNANcr.vi. affairs during the past
week have shown no change in the sit
uation. Everywhere the excess of money
Is the most prominent feature, and banks
are seeking borrowers to give them a
chance of making dividends, or for
want of them are investing their super
fluoija funda at least the New York
banks do so inUrlited States securities
Money eo iuve.-tcd is returned as
"loans," giving the publican erronenm
idea of the amonnt of currency actually
taken for active business purposes. The
Memphis banks are ready recipients of
first-class paper at 10 per cent, per an
num. On the's'reet currency is in plen
ty at liJ per cant, a month. Ex
change nss been in more liberal tupply
since coLton began to sell freely, with a
very Hgbt counter demand; rates firm at
i discount buying and J premium sell
ing on New York, and J discount buy
ing and par selling on New Orleans.
Gold, bai been steady all week, varying
from 114 to 114 J In New York; yester
day at noon it was 114, brokers In
Memphis offering 11. For silver the
brokers have ceasc-d to pay any premi
um, which .makea the approaching
small change ' tesue safe from be
ing bought up' ' and eliminated
from circlation. City tax scrips are in
demand at the rate? given below: County
warrants are quiet State warrants are
very scarce, with some demand; we
found them effsring yesterday at OS, bat
some days they are so ecarce a3
to bring half a cent to a cent
