Times so utUrly without discount businxs wew perhaps hardly ever known, and the withdrawals of bullion from the liunk of Ktitfiand excite no notice, although ti;e lloat inj capital available for lending is by no means large. A long coiitin uanee of tliii stagnation must prove the re vem of whol.nome in many way. Weak rpU in uu'ivant'.le credit uru covered ovor, an I troile wcarriJ on to some extent on a jj.)-e Uii-i. Money drifts into channel from which it be at ontn withdrawn when tr.i le actively reappears; and the danger of a renewal check anting out of the first move ment of revived business confidence is there fore enhanced. All this is extremely un wholesome, and the feeling that this swollen state of credit, this bolstering exists, would retard a trade recovery most seriously, were all war alarms at an end. The danger of collapse and panic, jut when signs of trade recovery begin to show themselves, or when money from any cause becomes dearer, grows frtvati-r every week.

COTTON. The telegrams reported a perfect slaughter of cotton in New Y ork yesterday in a decline of 3-Uk: on spot and a corresponding fall in the "future" market, as will be seen by the comparison in the table below. Two weeks ago middling quoted 12 5-lUc in New York, yesterday 11 ll-ldc New Orleans was droop ing; there was no change at Liverpool, it be ing the semi-annual cloning day at the Bank of England. In our market the buyers were attracted by preater ease, although the quo tation were nominally preserved, and they bought with some freedom for Saturday, ail taken by spinners. The New York Bulletin reported on Wednesday: "The feeling gen erdly continued tnrae, and prices were again nif all amnnil 1'Ka rfpmnnd for anrttn w:m moderate, and confined entirely to parcels re quired to satisfy spinning wants, and these were-met freely by the great majority of bolder. The continued break on contracts and no more immediate use for stocks in a speculative war were weakening influences, and here and there a holder could be found crowding somewhat, with the depression on pric ftudicient to cause a reduction of con quotations. Kxporters quiet, as wc are above a parity of Liverpool. 1'he downward turn of values may in the main be attributed to the unfavo ruble account from abroad, the cubit s, both puMio and private, appearing to indi cate a little deincraiizatiOB at Liverpool, and under this quits a number of "longs" were throwing their cotton over. Crop accounts keep an in better shape than a week ago, and tiiis add to the heavy tone." The Importer, of tjjitinao, tieorgia, Jreport that Savannah cotton in-Tciiiinta do not make sales to cone .spend with the new classifications, and says it is an admitted fact throughout the country that the New York cotton msrchanU sell all cUue of cotton at one or two grade higher than Savannah.
