Financial matters are tiring from their unvarying eameness; the situation has nothing new unless it is increasing dullnf83, on tho principle cf MiIton.'s "beneath the deep there was a lower deep." Exchange is steady at par buy ing on New York, celling at premium; New Orleans j discount, par selling. Gold at noon quoted 112J in New York, heie 111J. The Journal of Commerce siTB of the silver issue: "The movement of silver coin to California continues, and the treasury.officlals decline to adopt a course which will supply the demand there without disturbing this market Tfco majority of the coin now being paid out of the treisury originally came from the California mints, and the sil ver is still coming this way. The de partment will not give $0 shippers here drafts upon tho California mints, which, being cashed there, would save the transportation of coin both ways, and hesitate about making telegraphic trans fers. Consequently a loss ol about Ave per cent, is entailed upon the Californians udng subsidiary coin." The New York Bulletin, of Wednesday, had a striking communication from its Washington correspondent, giving the result of an examination of tuch data as is publish ed in the treasury statements and by the comptroller of the currency. The con clusion the correspondent arrives at is that the peculiar methods of book-keeping adopted in the treasury have caused the reduction of the public debt to ap pear larger by over forty millions than it actually is. The Bulletin remarks upon this: "Undoubtedly, there is a more or less ,eieral impression that the net in debtedness of tne government has been materially understated; and a fear is en tertained that short le venues may some day make it impossible to carry the de ception along,and the public be surprised by a Urge and unaccountable increase in the debt, with consequent disturbance of the public audit.' In our market thsre was nothing doing in bonds or stocks; scrips are firmer owing to the fact that at the end of May a penalty of 12 per cent, will be added to tbe taxes due. It Is expected, therefore, that there will be a demand before that date. JSutrlng. Belling.

Liverpool "brfke" again, and middling upland cotton now quotes there below sixpence. New York shook like arecd,',and wasdull, irregular, lower to sell and everything that is horrible. Under this condition of thing? our mar ket could have no strength; holders are discontented with prices, tut they are becoming anxious to sell, and specula tors are (.titling cottons on the market at a heavy discount on what they gave for them. Bayers had things all their own way, and tho quotations again went down, so that we are eelling mid tiling cottons in Memphis at lOJc.
