The week opened with great buoy ancy and excitement on the ttock exchange, aucn oa has not been witnessed tor a long time past; the advance ranged from from 4 to 28 per cent. The immediate cause ot improvement was the favorable progress mak ing toward ret u motion throughout the coun try, it having been announced since Saturday 41 1 11 T . : 1 1 1 1 1 c r- : . - iau imru nauonat uaoxoi wincinnau, and the Northwestern national bank of Chi cago will redeem their circulation in gold; there were also some special causes at work to influence prices. Among them crop ad vices from the west, which are very f avora ble, and was particularly felt in the shares of roads west of Chicago, and an upward move ment in them, accelerated- by large purchases for account of prominent Chicago speculators some of whom arrived in the city to-day and were ptesent in the street; Northwestern common and preferred were the favorites in these purchases, followed by St. Paul and Rock Islands. A considerable amount of purchases to-day were for election purposes. There was a sharp rise in Michigan Central, partly on account of belief in contest, and partly because of short interest. Lake Shore was a prominent feature and advanced sharply under very heavy transactions. It was reported on the streets that Vanderbilt had been a large buyer of stock, and this gave confidence to speculation, and Western Union and Union Pacific were up on increased transactions. The coal stock snared in the general improvement, as did also Pacific Mail ; in tact, almost every thing on the liht. Fluctuations were wide and frequent, and a large business was done in the leading stocks. As the market swayed to and fro there was continued excitement throughout the evening, and transactions were on an immense scale. At intervals the dealings were characterized by great buoy ancy, and the highest prices of the day and of the season were made. Toward the close business was well distributed, but the stocks most prominent iu the upward movement were Northwestern, St. Paul, Lake Shore, Michigan Central, Hock Island and Union Pacific, Western Union, Columbus, Cleve land, Cincinnati aud Indianapolis, Hanniba and St. Joseph, and in coal stocks. In the final transactions the market was strong and riht on to the highest point of the day. The Ohio and Alisaiwippi railway earnings have increased til, 500 the firat week in April.

COTTON. In our laxt weekly review of the cotton market of the preceding official week, we quoted the closing price of middling in New York at 10 9-16c, it advanced to 10?u'c; New Orleans quoted 10.4c, advanced to lOAfc; Liverpool quoted 5Jd, advanced to6d; Mem phis quoted 10c, advanced to lOc This statement shows that the week has been more favorable to the price of cotton than has been usual of late, but the advance has been with in a small limit. The cause of the improve ment was a more pacific look of things in the east of Europe. The proceedings of Russia meet with some check irom the other powers which tends to support the position of the English, and so to make more IprobaLle the preservation of peace. iaken at the best, however, the war aspect 11 not a pleasing one and hostilities may break out any day This throws an element of uncertainty into the future which interferes greatly with the interests of trade. The tables below show that our Memphis stock of cotton has largely decreased. We had 60,000 bales at the open ing ot March, we have now but 33,000 and buyers begin to complain of limited and unde sirable offerings. This week exporters have purchased largely over spinners, Jast week the reverse was the case. Our rwceipts are also declining. A month ago they were run ning 1U.U00 bale a weeks last week ouoo, but, as a whole, receipts keep up to a higher m irk than bad been looked for. which has a dapressing effect in connection with the full re- s ipts. lhe war and the wretchedly despond- it state of trade all add to the difficulty X ae "hard times are not conhned to our Oirn neighborhood, nor to our own country. everywhere is heard the voice of complaint; every where manufactories are stopping or working short time, and the pitiful wages of the workingmen are reduced to a still lower point. As wages are reduced, tne working- xnen s families are obliged to live on coarser food, and wear cheaper garments and fewer of them, and often to go in rags, and in pro portion as they consume less, the demand decreases, and bad trade becomes worse. This leads to a further redaction of wages. which leads to worse times, and so the mill goes on, because men have not learned how properly to distribute what Providence has bountifully given. The planting news is of the most encouraging character, lhe spring is forward, the weather genial, showery, and not too many of them, hi ft h ten the farmers' expectations. The last weekly cot ton review of the New York Bulletin said of the slight rhe in the market: "The only ap parent reason for the change appeared to be a more peaceful dispatch from Europe, and this was neutralised before the day closed, with no later indications of confirmation; but the 'bulls' having secured a grip, held on with such tenacity as to finally create alarm among their opponents, and when it was found that the shorts were covering pretty treely, bidding and blustering the market set in with such systematic form as to give strong evidence of a combination to work an advance. On supplies the 'bears' could ar gue from the tact that figures continued to gain a little over last year, and preserve the increased crOD indications: while as to scanti ness of unsold cotton there would seen) to be enough, as constant and persistent offerings of the staple direct to commissioners failed to attract demand, even when offered at a fraction under market ' rates. The advices from tho south also went to show that the situation on the new crop was very favorable, with indications of an increased planting. In brief, the position on actual cotton, either as respects the demand for consumption or the supplies to meet it, present and prospective, was no more promising than weeks ago, so far as the 'bulls' were interested." Receipts in Memphis during the official week aggregated 5010 bales, against 6967 bales the previous week, and 2071 bales the corresponding week last season, and 3875 bales the season before. The total receipts since September 1, 1877, were 382,517 bales, against 372,244 bales at the corresponding time last season, showing an increase of 10,- 273 bales.

Shipments during the official week aggre gated 7946 bales against 12,294 bales the previous week, and 2806 bales the correspond ing week last season. Total shipments since September 1st are 354,671 bales, against 328, 896 bales the same time last year; an increase of 25,775 bales. lhe total stock on hand wasd3,138 bales, against 36,074 bales last week, and. 48,751 bales at this time last year. bales during the week were 9300 bales. 5650 to exporters, 3350 to spinners, and 300 to speculators.

The threatening aspect which the relations of Russia and Great Britain again assumed, and a slightly easier market at Liverpool, to gether with a threatened strike in the Lan cashire manufacturing districts, were influ ences which, under ordinary circumstances, would have caused a decline, but holders of the present crop were looking at the rapid reduction of stocks which is now going on, and which must continue for several months to come, and in the face of the adverse influ ences just noted forced the advance. The next crop, however, seemed to have no friends, and yielded more generally to legiti mate influences. There has been no severe storm at the south, as was threatened a day or two since, and the rain that has fallen was needed. There has seldom, if ever, been a more favorable planting season.
