TBDE MEMPHIS UjTLT5T APPEAL THURSDAY'. MAKOH 28. 1878.
FINANCIAL. The chanjjoj made ly congress in the cur tency naturally interrupts, for the time, the even course of financial attain, and there U necessarily a disposition among business men to be cautious in tht-ir purchase until mat' tera have accommodated themselves to the change, and the course of business under the new auspices becomes clear. The result is a halting in affairs, so that the approach of spring produces a less stimulating effect upon busings generally than would otherwise have been tho case. A still more seriously damaging effect upon traJo is prod need by the uncertainty cf what further changes con gress may adopt, for the unknown always in spires most du-trubt. When to these things is added the suspense c&used by the war in Europe, dullness of trade becomes inevitable. If tho war cloud passes away, and congress shows no intention to make further financial changes at present, we may look for improve ment; but, in the meantime, our spring trade is injured, as tho fall trade was. Our own banki fetl, of course, the dullness that weighs everything down; money leaves circulation and takes refugo in tho banks, where a plethora is threatened, and borrowers arc few, al though motvy can be had at 8 per cent, where tho paper is acceptable. Exchange at ki discount buying, and if premium selling on New York; New Orleans buying at i 'discount, and selling at par. The New York bank statement for last ww k shows that the New York banks are still increasing their specie reserve, although the amount added last week was comparatively small. There was a greater decrease in legal-tender notos, but there was a large decrease in deposits, and, by reason of this, tho surplus reserve was raised f J07,7rO. Secretary Sherman shows by statements from treasury officials that both by ti a, tactions between private in dividuals and between the government and private individuals, coin certificates are used now in nine cne out of ten, and not the actual coin. The New York banks nominally hold now a coin reserve of $10,000,000, but the New York Financial Chronicle says that "tho largest portion of their reported specie is in the shape of gold certificates." In onr local stock market there was a salo of $ 2000 Memphis gas stock at 101 , and more was wanted; also foOOO City insurance stock at 66. BY TK LEO RAP II. PARIS, March 27.

The Chicago and Rock Island compa ny declared a quarterly dividend of 2 per cent., payable May Lit. The stock market was influenced to some extent by the warlike character ot the European news. It was buoyant and higher, led by the shares of the two Wisconsin roads and Lake Shore. Large ' block of stock were purchased, and the bullish temper was very pronounced. North western common rose from 41if to 45 closing at 45, while preferred sold at 71, 70Ji 71?a, aud 71.

Tho cotton market was again, yesterday, under the influence of depressing news, "dull" and "weak" were tho most frequent ly occurring words marked upon the black board of tho cotton exchange. New Orleans closed easy at the reduction of tho day be fore; New York was weak from the opening to the close for spots, but futures at about previous figures, were farm and steady; Liv erpool was dull aud easier, the quotations for middling uplands was reduced below six pence, and arrivals opened lower and closed dull. Of course, all this avalanche of evd oould not fail to affect our market unfavor ably. Tho demand was fair and ran mostly on the lower grades, and quotations on all grades below middling suffered a reduction of 4C m the table below shows. With this reduction buying became pretty active from both exporters and spinners. At the close there was some irregularity of prices all along the list. Cotton Kxfhute Quotation-.

The lone, drv interval was broken up yes terday, not by torrents, as had been expected, but by light spring showers that lust met tne degirea ot those who had sown and planted. No boat was in from above, and the market was quiet. There was a firm feeling in corn; oats were inquired about, and some offered, but not at prices that would secure buyers; cornmeal was back to the previous figure: eggs were better; provisions were steady and unchanged, with only a moderate demand. The Nashville Banner, of Tuesday, quotes butter at 10(g25c; eggs, from wagon, 74c; spring chickens, 1012.4c each; hens, 15 16c; peanuts, 45 65c; sweet potatoes, from wagons, loose, (1 75. The St. Louis Repub lican,' of Tuesday, reports: River freights unchanged, but not permanent; receipts of produce increasing; on 'change there was an indisposition toward anvthine like brisk op erations for cash or futures, and a tendency toward lower prices on grain, which, could hardly have been anticipated in view of the sustained difference between Great Britain and Russia; flour stagnant; wheat firm, but apathetic; corn steady and in good demand; oats slow and easy; provisions neglected. Tclmadge Sons, of Charleston, report a steady market at the recent decline, being supported by speculators buying to protect themselves. Corn in our market was in moderate offer ing and firm; sales of 100 sacks of white at 50c; also 125 sacks of ear at 47.4c and 80 sacks at 43c. Oats were offering at 36c, but not being Galena, met with no buyers; there are two fair-sized lots on the market. Bran no sales reported; last sales at f 16 75 and 117.
