With the exception ot the decline in exchange .
iu New York consequent upon the general sus- :
I tension ot specie payments by the Banks ot j
ttidtcity. we have no new feature to note in our j
monetary arf'aira. The Banks of Richmond ;
hnie yielded to the pressure, and have all sus- j
glided, winch will cause a similar course to be !
adopted by those branches throughout the State,
wiucri had not before suspended. The Banks I
die discounting sparingly, and money is in veiy I
artive request—street rates keep high.
In stocks there is nothing doing, and quota
tions are nominal Land Warrants are dull,
and we have heard ot no sales.
StspxNaioN ok KioiMosu Banks.—The ‘‘Far*
mer-* Bank,’’ and the branch ot the ‘-Exchange
Bank,” both located in this city, suspended spe
C e payments yesterday. -Suspension by the
• Farmers’ Bank'* will doubtless cause the adop
tion of a similar course on the part ot its
branches in various sections oi uie oiaic. i nr
“Bank ol Virginia is the only bank in Rich
mond that continues to redeem its notes witn
ajrne. It is supjiosed however, that like most
ol banks North and South, the uBank ot
Virginia,’* will also. at an early day, in selt de
Ihk**. b»* compelled to suspend. [The Bank ot
Virginia has since suspended.]
For several weeks past the Banks of this city
have seen tit to curtail their discounts at a most !
oppressive rate, and had such a course been pro- »
ceeded m much longer, the entire mercantile I
commum’v ol Richmond would have been pros- j
trated. and business generally paralized. Hav- j
in j/ now sii'pended. the Banks can continue their j
u»ual discounts, and thus relieve the trading j
community ot thi^ city without the tear ot hav- j
ing Th-ir notes forthwith returned to them lor
specie, and inevitably forcing them to suspend
with empty vaults, they stop now with tul!
vaults.and will be in a condition to resume spe
cie payments whenever that measure may be
agreed upon by the other Banks.— Huh Knq
Ntvs Vouk.—The Commercial of Thursday
afternoon says:—‘‘To-day presents a strong con
trast in The street to all that have preceded it
during the p.esent week, m the tar better state
ol leeling which is everywhere prevalent, The
a- troll ol the banks, consummated last night, by
which they agiee to ieceive the notes of the
solvent banks in the state on deposit, is regarded
in the most favorable light, and will perhaps ef
fect more in affording immediate relief Irom the
dead lock of trade under which we were suffer
ing tor some time past, than any expedient capa
ble of immediate adoption.
-We understand that a resolution was adop
ted at the clearing house this morning, that
irom. and including this day. until further notice,
tne balances accruing there will be settled in
current funds, instead of in specie, thus remov
ing another obstacle in the way ot relief mea
sures by the banks We understand that the
settlement all passed olFsatisiactonly this morn
ing The exchanges were .$8,375,B09 B2, and
the balances pant $872,37g 3ti. There will be
some little change in membership, grow ing out
ol the suspension, but the details are not yet en
tirely adjusted
•State stocks shared in the general advance,
with an active demand. Tilt* sales altogether
amounted to about one hundred thousand dol
lars of which sixty-three thousand were securi
ties ot this state. New York Sixes ot 1873 and
1 >7 X went up to par. a tine operation for those
who bought at the commencement ot the week
at the neighborhood ol ninety. Sixes of lSBl
brought v*4, ami ot >862 and 181*4,93. Fives of

Boston, Oct. 14.—The bank presidents, at
tiieir meeting this afternoon, adopted the follow
ing preamble and resolutions:
lu considering the course taken by the banks
this morning in suspending specie payments, we j
are led to the conclusion that it was not a mat- j
ter ol mere expediency, growing out ol the fact
that the banks of New York, Philadelphia,
Baltimore, and other important cities had set
them the example, but a measure of irresistible
necessity—a necessity imposed on them not ■
merely or principally on their own account, but
n.ost especially ior the piotection ot their nu- ■
serous debtors It is obvious that the banks
could not continue specie payments without 1
calling on tueir debtors to pay in specie; ami al
though thegreat mass of them are iu possession of
a property, their inability to pay in specie
18 certain, and an attempt to enforce it w ould end
lu ruin. In tueir tail all the laboring classes ot
community must be involved. They would
W thrown out o:e mployment and their families
thrown out ot daily bread. It is to avert these
consr^uence* that these measures have been
adopted. The committee recommend therefore
> adoption of the following resolutions:
"Resolved, That the present system ot daily
**tt.euient between the banks in the cleariug*
0,|ve shall be continued under such modilica
bouasthe clearing-house committee shall deem
Adv liable.
Resolved, That there shall be a return to
*pevie payment at as early a period as possible.”
jh* resolutions were unanimously adopted,
‘he crisis appears to have been met every
where to-day with entne philosophy, and with
^exhibition of excitement.
I he Boston banks will pay their balances at
^ clearing house in specie as usual, so that the j
wvpemion merely amounts to the suspension ot
out gold over their counters.
‘he Massachusetts Bank, the only one refu
•ln4 to join in the suspension, declares its inteu
•or. to continue sjvecie payments permanently.

^ luHrLxxu, Mk , Oct. 14.—All our city banks
UH* hdeil specie payments to-day.

^rector*, held here this afternoon, it was voted
payment during the present
co. J*u ut*OU8 "‘‘re aUo passed expressing
“nee in the Suffolk Bank system, and re- I

New Orleans, Oct. 14.—The crisis reached
its height to-day, and a portion ot' the banks re
solved to suspend. Their names are the fol
lowing—Union Bank, Bank of New Orleans,
and the Mechanics' and Traders' Bank. The
following Banks continued to pay specie *11 day:
The Canal Bank. State Bank. Bank ot Louisiana,
Citizens'Bank, and Bank of James Robb Ike
last named, and also the Citizens' kept open till
dark, meeting all demands as last as presented.
The panic has now quite subsided, and there is
little doubt but that the banks w hich paid spe
cie throughout the day will be able to continue
doing so.
The Baltimore American of yesteiday says:
— We have no change to note to-day in the con
dition of the Money market. Capitalists seem
indisposed to purchase paper, and it is difficult
to negotiate loans except upon undoubted col
laterals. The banks are w e believe discounting
to the full extent of their receipts, but there is
notwithstanding a large amount ot paper otf^r
ing on the street. The street ra’es to-day lor
discounts range at trom 2 to 2A per cent, per
mouth lor prime business paper. Money can
be had on call with undoubted stock collaterals
at 1$ per cent, per month. New \ork Exchange
is very irregular. The rates to-day range at
ljtob percent, premium. (Jold is bringing 5
to 5* per cent, premium.

FLOUR.—The curings during the week
have been very light—not sufficient to meet the
city consumption. Nearly all the transactions
have been made ou private terms, and we a;e
unable to give reliable quotations.
WHEAT.—The market during the week has
been flat, oith a continually declining tendency.
At the commencement oi the week prices

I2*c. lor red Since then there has been a stea
dy decline, and on Friday there were sales ot
good white at 110c; red was in better request,
and sales made at llvjc. The oilerings have
been lair, but the unsettled state ol the money
mat ket has had a most unlavorable elfect on
prices, and in consequence, we have to note the
decline, which, however, is not greater tuati that
in the neighboring markets.
CORN has been in active request during the
week, but prices have been without material
change, viz : 6N273c. lor white ami mixed.
There was a sale on Friday of 100 bushels at
77c., but the sale was made under peculiar cir
cumstances, and the price cannot be considered
as the regular market rates.
RYE—The offerings have been light, and
transactions limited, and the ruling liguies ha\e
been fibji*7Uc.
OATS—There has been a fair request for
Oats, and some change in quotations. Early
in the week safes were made at 38u4Uc., but at
the close there was a decline, and safes vvett*
made at 30c.
SEEDS.—There is but little enquiry for
Seeds, and no change in the prices ot ( lover or
Ti mothy Seed. Flaxseed have declined, and
sales made at $1 OU.
UUANO—Th t-re is a less active demand lor
all descriptions, though sales are yet beuig
made to a considerable extent We continue

been fair, with light shipments. Quotations
remain unchanged, viz: wump $4 0U <|>Run ol

White Ash at $6; Red $0 25, delivered.
PLASTER—There have been several car
goes received this week, and the supply on hand
is large, with a limited demand. W e quote $3
0u ^ ton from vessels; $4 2f(2$4 50, delivered

1 Canal.—Boats are still running on the ca
nal. No breaks have receutiy occurred, tui
the water is low and boats able to carry only
| a partial load. A copious rain (which we
! have had) would help the matter somewhat,
and enable shippers to send forward a large
amount of coal betw een now and the closing
of navigation by ice; "provided ahcayT’ no
1 break, or other mishap should occur through
the wilful neglect which has hitherto charac
terised the management of the work on the
part of some of the Superintendents.—Cumb.
Tel.
A Suggestion —Tne navigation of the
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, will bo much as
sisted by the recent rains, but, suggests the
I National Intelligencer, as every thing good
! touching the canal during 1&07 has been
followed close at its heels by some counter
l vailing misfortune, so now a rise of water is
I negatived by a failure of pecuniary means
to prosecute further mining. Should this
! appear likely to continue, would it not be
I well for all persons who calculate to use Cum
j berland coal during the coming winter to
1 send up direct orders now whilst coal and
time are measurably iu their power? It is
to be feared that if some previsory measures
i be not soon taken, fuel may becom° excessive
ly dear thfa winter, »xni more especially il
| the winter should prove severe.

1 inches in di imeter, aud 10 inches, long, and
one inch thick, with wrought irou journals

The rollers are braced on the inside with
strong ribs and the whole is neatly and truly

j The rollers .are mounted in a hubniantial oak
I frame,and the machine is ready for use. 1 he

j The official result of the State election had
I been declared in most of the counties. Iho
1 total vote polled was some 15,000 behind the
1 preceding election. The returns show \\ el
ler’s majority 11,000 over both Bowie (Amer.)
and Stanly (Kep.) The latter leads bis com- j
petitorabmt 1,000 votes, lhe Legislature!
ib overwhelmingly Democratic.
The people resolved to pay the State debt
by a majority of 15,000 against repudiation,
but have refused to call a State Convention f
to revise the Constitution. A majority of the
votes cast was necessary to ensure the Con* 1
voution, but so great was the indifference
manifested, that a moiety of the people only ■
voted on the questiou.
Mining operations throughout the State j
were carried on as vigorously as ever. The
various flouring companies on the rivers were
getting fairly to work, and many of their
enterprises were resulting successfully.
Crops throughout the State had generally
been garnered iu excellent condition.
