VJtth fair expert demand for wheat was occasioned by tho recent . Iiarp decline in our price;, speculation again reared its head, and without the warrant of ary advance in .Europe, has nisei prices both here and at Chicsco to Aat that have fctoppad the move ment.

Tho same pa per, au'dy ldui, lias an exe l!ent analy- ia oJ the fioaooial condition; it observes uat tne iinks gain etreugth through apatny In trade and sinking loans. Th !?gfcl-tender averago rises while the amount of bink notss on hand has in rr aed a million einceMnyCth. The crock of specie is declining while depos ts iDsretwe. Excepting & decreas of 000.000 In loans and nearly 511.000. 0J0 in circulation, the hanks are about vIiefe they were iu May, 1873.

From ilay 1, 1675, to May 1, 1676, the average - clino In prices of breadttufls was IU p;roenf.; in iron, 14 per cent.; in wool, 12 per cent.; in niolasie, 24 per oent: la tbsceo, 43 percent; In leather, 20 otr cent.; in hiaes, 25 percent; in Jim-, i per cent ; in llused oil, 20 per cent.; iu r,Mv, 15 per cett.; In wLale oil, 14 I'crceiii.; in hy. li percent.: in cod liih.lli parcel.; in lard, 18 per cent.: ,a taeese. per CfcUt.; ia xjcei ig per CTJt.; rr., in lions. 48 nr rmnt t trhiln 1Q '-early all other important articles of uomrutrce Ultra was somo deciino in wholesale pries?. The average seems sumo hat greater than the decline in laajsorin cloiriugs. The dullnera in clock speculation has its influence also; the Hales thus far this year have been more than 6,000,000 shares less thandar--ng the sme time last year, and there 'jas also been a decline in prices. The decrease in shares sold reprewnij decline in transactions ol about eDOOOOOOO, or more. But the incline in bank clennntrs since Jacusry 1st. compared with the tamo time last jesr, Iish icen over S1,300,0C0.0G0 and rnu"h the greater part of it is due to the decline in prices. Trie shrinkage in hsc ramerceof NewYcrirtnd of the coi'ntry, as meanure;' In values ex changed, has been mainly due to the settling of prices toward a&pcie bsBL?, The cousaiuption has not generally de tllt'eJ. Meanwhile the decreate Jn' bank circulation Hinco May 1st has been Si 013.200, and the deposit of legal-ten-ilers for tho pnrpiso of eurrenderlng cir cula'ion about $l,200l000.
