and destroyed, and built again. In a word, if one will
trace through all its branches and subdivisions the workings of this new force thus put in action by the Government, they will see that a new life was infused into every
productive employment in the country.
All this, it will be readily admitted, was not, nor was
any part of it, the result of the issue of currency. The
war being in progress and the army in existence, the rest
necessarily followed
an increased demand, rising prices,
increased production.
Had the Government borrowed
on its bonds every cent it needed, the actual requirements
for food and materials could not be changed.

issues did not enlarge, or affect in any way, these requirements.
Nothing, it would seem, could be clearer.
Hence we reach the conclusion from which there is no
escape, that a state of trade existed during the war

Yorkshire, &c. The attendance of buyers has been fair, and there

The deliveries of English wheat in the 150 principal markets of
England and Wales amounted during the week ending August 14,
to 31,175 quarters, against 80319 quarters in the preceding week,
and 17,079 quarters during the corresponding period of last year.
It may be inferred therefore that there is still a moderate balance
of last year's crop on hand, or at all events, a larger supply than
was held at this date in 1874. According to the usual method of
computation, the total eales in the Kingdom last week amounted
to 124,700 quarters, against 68,310 quarters last year, showing

advance of Bs. 3d. compared with last year, but a decline of 28. Id.
compared with the preceding week.
The advance recently
established in priceii has, it appears, induced many farmers to thresh
more freely, not only on account of the more satisfactory harvest
prospect, but also because of the rapidly increasing importations.
In the United States there is apparently a great desire evinced to
market the balance of last year's crop, if we judge from the fact
that the trade at New York has assumed a heavy appearance
prices having declined considerably from the highest point in spite
of the large purchases which have been made for export to this

Railroad and MIseellaneons Stocks.— There has been
more interest in stocks this week than for some time previously.
At the opening on Monday a free selling moveni.ut was commenced, aud. under the lead of Western Union Telegraph, there
was a general decline in the list of active stocks. Nothing in the
financial situation was found to warrant this turn in the market,
aud it was generally attributed to sales on the part of large
holders of stocks, and particularly to sales of Western Union by
the party -n ho is always credited now with being the heaviest
operator, whichever way the market may turn. The lowest prices
were generally reached on Tuesday and Wednesday, since which
there has been a material reaction and a recovery in prices
throughout the list. To-day the tone was heavy at the close, and
prices near the lowest of the day. The range is given below for
each day of the week.

Exchange fell off sharply on Tuesday
consequence ot the higher rates on gold loans and the fears of
another movement to make gold scarce. On actual transartions
prices were made as low as 4 84i for sixty davs' sterliDg. and
leading drawers reduced their quotations to 4 85i and 4 88 for
long and abort respectively. Subsequently these rates were considered too low, and an advance of ^ point waa made yesterday,
at which they remained today, with a concession from these
ratea in the morning, but more firmness in the afternoon.
