that class of property has become active. The frontier of the West, and the restored facility of the railroads to procure good freights, has had an important influence upon the stock market. Most descriptions have undergone an important advance. The values of the leading stocks on the New York market were as follows: July 6. Sept. 8. Gain.

The effect of this is to make available an immense amount of property which has been comparatively dead during the past two or three years. The revival of value in these large interests causes a greater circulation of capital and promotes the apparent abundance of money. This subsides from the temporary rise that manifested itself in August :

The improved operations in the stock market caused some demand for money for the moment, but there was no permanent effect. There was nothing then to cause any demand for money or capital. A New York Central Park loan for $250,000, 6 per cent, redeemable in 1876, was taken at 3.14 per cent premium. The State of Ohio offers for a loan of $6,000,000, to meet a loan falling due, and the Secretary of the Treasury has issued proposals for $10,000,000 in a 5 per cent stock, payable in ten years, according to the act of Congress of June 23d, authorizing a loan for the redemption of the treasury notes outstanding.

The advance of the season showed a growing ease in the market. Notwithstanding the prospect of a large esport of cotton and corn, there is nothing in the immediate state of those markets to attract investments for speculation. The ease in the markets that has prevailed so long has kept the importations well paid up, and the rates of bills are getting lower:

The drains for this purpose in 1853-4 was large, but at that time it was ascribed to the Russian war. It is to be borne in mind, however, that the drain upon America must cease at a certain point, since after debts are paid it can be kept up only upon the operation of credits.

Although the aggregate was not as large as last year, yet the export for the four weeks ending September 8 were much larger. The exports from Boston for the month of August amounted to $271,000, making an aggregate since January of $1,497,956, against $1.953,625 same period of 1859. The Subtreasurer sent, September 10. $1,250,000 gold dollars from New York to Philadelphia to have them coined into double-eagles for export. Those coins were never popular, and the multiplication of silver change causes them to be less wanted. The New York assay-office, for the month, has operated as follows :

The supply of the metals now in the country is considerable, and probably ample for the wants of business. The state of affairs in Europe is such that, with the apprehensions of war and the uncertainty that attends the settlement of Italy, gold may be the last article, next to food, to export. The means of paying for coin, corn, and cotton must be large, however, to meet the exigencies of the case.

The Custom-house returns for the month of August show a larger import than for the corresponding month of either of the previous four years, and notwithstanding this large increase, there has been no accumulation in bond :

The total imports at the port of New York, since January 1, are less than for the corresponding total of last year, but $68,000,000 more than for the total of the first eight months of 1858.

The proportion of the whole imports which is embraced under the head of dry goods, shows for the month of August a decline, being the reverse of last year's business. The aggregate for the month has been larger than for any year to 1859, but the quantity put upon the market does not show the same results :
