The exports of domestic produce from New York to foreign ports have been rather more than for last year. On the other hand, the shipments of specie, which were remarkably large, have declined more than half. The shipments of specie for May last year were larger than for any previous month in our history; and this year, although less, are still considerable :

Thus the exports from New York to foreign ports, exclusive of specie, since January 1st, are larger than ever before in the same period. The specie shipments for the same time show an immense decline as compared with last year, and are moderate in respect of former ones :
