We

may here call attention to the remarkable fluctuation in the imports of dry goods, at this port, as presented in the aggregates for the first seven montbs of each year, as follows :

63,362,687 Every third year there has been an inevitable decline of imports to the same figure. In 1852, 1855, and 1858, a reaction and fall took place. Will the same happen next year?

The cash duties received at the port of New York, during the month of July, have been less than for the same period of 1839; they are reckoned, of course, apon the goods thrown on the market. We annex a comparative summary :

The domestic exports from the port of New York for the inonth of July have been considerably larger than for the same month in any previous year. This arises from the large crops of cotton this year being supported by the revival of the breadstuff demand abroad, and this has carried the New York business to a high figure. The value of domestic produce exported exceeds that of last year by $2,600,000, while specie sent abroad is $3,400,000 less :-EXPORTS FROM NEW YORK TO FOREIGN PORTS FOR THE MONTH OF JULY.

The prospect is now that the improved demand for breadstuffs, and the lessened import, will cause the specie to reaccumulate in the country.
