New Orleans Market.
NEW ORLEANS, April 13.-COTTON -There was a lair
Inquiry noticeable at the opening of the market this
mirc'ni, with some prospect of a moderate, if not an
average business. But owing to the heavy operations of
yesterday, offiiinga wore unusuilly light and factors de?
manded still more stringent prices, which tended to re?
strict operations. Some small sales transpired during
the forenoon, nevertheless, at an advance on yesterday's
rates; but the upward movement wis checked at an
early hour by a reduction in the demand for and rates of
Foreign Exchange, which, however, was moro fully de?
veloped after the receipt ot the regular noon dispatcher
to the Press announcing a considerable docUne in rates
of Gold at >ew Yi rk, while private dispatches subse?
quently received represent a material failing off in rates
of foreign bil's at the North, and countermanded pre?
vious orders to buy, whi'.h had been previously received
In this market
As may ba readily Inferred, the demand for cotton
soon abated after the intelligence referred to became
generally known, and prices fed oft to yesterday's closing
figures, at which rates only a few hundred bales changed
hands during thc latter part of thc day. Tho aggregate
sales foct np only 1500 bales, divided among tan buyers,
and the movement was almost exclusively restricted to
the purchase of small lots for filling up previous lista.
We repeat last evening's quotations, with the remark
that the market closed unsettled at these figures: Ordi?
nary, 30 to 32c; good ordinary, 33 to 34c; low middling,
35 to 36c; middling, 39 to 40c. The net receipts for the
week are 12,908 bales, against 15,243 ba:eBlast week, and
18,209 bales the week'previous. The aggregate sales tor
the v. eek foot np 1',020 bales, against 14,565 bales last
week, and 14,149 bales the week previous. The exports
for the week amount to 22,348 bales, against 22,176 bales
last week, and 18,916 bales the week previous, and the
Stock on hand and on shipboard this evening is 170,190 |
bales, against 178,344 bales last reek, ?od 184,768 bales

SHOAT, AND MOLASSES.-There hu? been a good de
m&nd for sugar throughout the week, but the limited

The N. Y. Times of Monday 16th Inst,, aays: The
price of gold was fairly ateady Saturday at 126@12G;,' ft
cent; the market after regular f hange hours being
somewhat firm. The Exchange on London, whioh clos?
ed for the morning's steamer* et 107 ??'(?) 107,'.' ft cf nt.,
was held for 107@107?; for the next packet at the
close of the day. There was not much disposition,
however,.to do business in anticipation of the later
news from Europe, which was expected to be recel re <
before the remittances for the Cunarder of Wednesday
next have to be made up.
The private letters by the Boston steamer, delivered
in tho morning, place, as a goneral remark, less impor?
tance on the polit ic tl dUturbance between tho Ce.man
Powers than was Indicated some duys ago by the proas
telegrams from Halifax, and the mall brought over a
much smaller sum of United States 5-20's of 1862 than
had boen sold In advance. The price before tho close of
tho day advanced to 104@10l>g', and tho honda were
being borrowed for delivery on short contracts at a nom?
inal J ate of interest. Nearly all the other Government
Securities were strongly upward. Some sales of 7-30s
wore made as high as 101 ft cent, and interest, and
Compound Interest Notes woro in demand at par and
full accumulated interest, less *i@,'; fl cent. The De?
cember Notes of 1864 were sold ut 1- 7,?;. The accumu?
lated interest is 108@108l; fl cont. Thu other dates
sold iu about the same proportion. Tho bants are said
to be buyers, by way of adding to their Lcjrnl Tonder
basis, and as money now goes on the street, they are
doing a good thing for th : lr interest bearing assets. In
some iustances money was offered to prominent bro?
kers on Government collateral as low as 4 per cont,
though 6 per cent is the rule of he Street.

MANCHESTER, Tuesday, April 3 -The depression ii
tho yarn and cloth market caused by the heavy arrival
nt cotton continues, and ii somowhat intensified by th
rapid accumulation of stock. A few weeks ago the ?toe:
in Liverpool was only about 300,000 bales, against ove:
600,000 last year. Yesterday tho stock had increased it
Liverpool to ?30 000 bules as compared with 552,001
1 'st year. A change of such importance naturally in
daces buyers to rauses little before entering onnev
engagements. In the department of shipping yarns tin
market has been very quiet to-day, but some of thc Ger
mans, being under the impression that the Austrian ani
Prussian quat rel ls likely to be ari ut-ged satisfactorily
this week, have ventured to givo out some pressing or

I havo also ventured to moko low oflors-too low, how
ever, to meet with acceptance, and they have not led t(
The market for these yarns cir ses with a better feel
lng than oil. ted st its opeuiug this morning, and witt
more disposition to business. For home trudo yarns
there has not been much inquiry, and prices are teuilins
decidedly in favor of buyers. Spinners having Ptocks
are more anxions to sell. As regards cloth, lu addition
to tho quietness and inactivity lucideutal to the holiday
season, we have a very general depression lu tho mar?
ket, and quite an absence of operations. There ls a de?
cline in the valuo of all sorts of goods, but we hear ol
nothing being done of sufficient importance to estab?
lish any very reliable quotations. Buyers are holding
entirely aloof, though sellers generally are not by any
means (owinir to previous orders; as yet reduced to the
position of being compelled to press for new contracts,
or to fores the goods any of them havo In stock unduly
upon the market. There aro many of them, however,
willing to take a considerable reduction in price.
