Gold opened firmer, and advanced to

Goveindicnt bonds were firmer ,and

Closing quotations as receiredi by Ili. P.
seems that there have been some ne
gotiations on foot for several days between
,the Secretary of the Treasury on the one
Side, and the NeW York bankers, financiers
- and stock speculators on the other, to see
what-- would be done •to create an easier
money market and relieve certain interests
fjom the Uncomfortable pressure for ready
money. This correspondence at last cul
minated in an offer by - 31r. McCulloch to i
exchange ten millions of 3 per cent. certifi
cates or clearing bonsecertifieates for alike
amount of seven-thirties and compound in
terest r notes, the; prices of these securities
to be fixed by agreement at the discretion
of the Assistant Treasurer at New York.
The Sub-Treasurer expressed his willing
neis.to pay 7 : 30s on Saturday at 106, but as
the current price was 1063 4 ;®106y," there
were no sellers on the terms offered. The
clearing holise committee deliberated on
the subject of the proposed reissue of these
certiticates,und after expresSing themselves
in its favor decided to call a general confer
ence of the banks, which was held yester- •
day; with a view to so adjusting matters as
to make the 'exchange of .interest bearing
notes for certificates practicable. After 'ex
changing views the banks decided to reject
the proposition, and the filet was duly tele
graphed. 1' _ •

In this connection it may be stated that
,the present'stringency_ in the money- mar
ket is generally considered to be more lull=
fitiat than real; but at all events it is"ndt
likely l to experience much relief until after
the first week in April, by which time the
funds distributed to meet the demands of
"settling day" and to enable the National
banks to make up their quarterly- returns
satisfactorily will have begun to return to
this centre.. Thd lst statement of the New
York banks reflects the .stringency, and
shows that they are weaker in loanable
sources than they have been for a long time
We noticed that in
,his revised estiMates,4
communicated toy Mr:" Sherman a' few
months ago, the Secretary of the Treasury
reduces his expected reeeipts from cinitsms
for the entire fiscal year ending 30th June
next, fr0m,5163,382,000 down to $156,035,212;
allowing tbr the third quarter $38,000,000,
and 'for the f0urth.537,000,0)0 7 -say_ seventy
five as against $87,171,000 - received
'from January Ito June .30, last yf3ar. Ow
ing to the. lateness ,of--the seasonp and the
consequent unusually light .customs in
Jamiary, the estimate for thel prostait
(third-quarter), ending =Blst inst:, • will.
prove about correct. The prospect is fair,
however, that the fourth quarter will do
mubh better. For .the succeeding fiscal
year the Finance Committee adopt the
previous estimates of -Mr. McCulloch for
$145,000,000. That 'Mr, Sherman, in his ex
planatory remarks, adds:
The first item and the laigestitem of re-
ceipts is the duties on customs.. The Sec
retary of the Treaiury estimates them at
4145,000;000:for the next fiscal year. After,
a careful review I think that estimate may
be maintained. It is true I have a letter
here from 'the Secretary of,the Treasury re-
Calling that estimate, stating that - if we re
peal 'the .taxes, on domestic - industry the
effect will be to• largely increase - domestic
vroducts and thus, reduce. _importations.
No doubt tt will'haVe that effect - to some
extent; but still , the :receipts: from :customs
during the present and last fiscal year have
been - 6.0'44 in' excess of his' estintates. -It is
very diffirtult•tovtell what be thodfw
of tile repeal of internal taxes upon iiikpov
Wank."' If byiteilegaig - the* ,tar.OS do do-
mestic industry ewe encanragem2r. own bi- -,
dustry, and thus_ supply - the Market now
occupied by foreign products, to that extent
the country will get a great benefit if the
revenue does not. A measure that in
creases the revenue is often very injurious
to the country, and ;if,the effect of this
measure should be what the Secretary of
the Treasury now anticipates, the people
may consider- themselves fortunate in sub
stituting in place of foreign prOducts the
products of our own industry. We there
fore see no necessity to change the estimates
madelv the.. Secretary, and place the re
ceipts from duties ipn imported goods •at

PITTSBURGH PETROLEUM MARKET.
OFFICE OE THE - EITTSIIIIRGIL GAZETTE,/
WEDI4,TESDAT, March 25, 1.86
CRUDE—The market was somewhat
firmer to-ditY, in consequence of the
proved character Of -the foreign news, and
the result is, we have not:a single sale to
report. Holders endeavored to spring a
quarter on spot oil, but buyers
Licould'nt see it," and one, was just about
as stubborn as the other. Quotations may
be fairly given at 8', 1 ,-?.t offered, and Sy a c
asked, and as we have already sAted,
neither buyer or seller would give, Ind, as
a matter of course, there was nothing done.
The business is in such a conditun, and
the margins so small, that fractbns are
considered to be of a geed deal of impor
tance, and operators now stand own eighth
or a quarter„ which a year o two ago
would - hardly have received'a s cortcl con
sideration. Oil City telegrams report the
market dull and nominal at $3 §3,10.
REFINED—The market Icy bonded oil
is firm, but owing to the extrme views of
holders, the volume of businss is limited.
There are offers for both pFesmt and future
deliveries, buttlierii , are- vey few sellers;
in f view of the fact that thee is no margin,
refiners, as a general thing and very sensi
bly, too, have conclUded to keep their oil
until such time as they .`.an reahze a price
that will afford a. profit It is true, prices
have' advinc6d n aterlitWwitliln•the list
thirty days, but as soot as refined appre
elates a , little in valet, crude follows suit,
and as a consequence/ refiners• are iti real
ity but little, if any better off than they
were before Mvgnee .took.place.: It
seems to us that thf crude men watch the
eastern 'and foreipl marke's closer than
they did some yeas since; if Xxitwerp goes
up a franc or two'now, theyLlnow about it
as soon as the rdlner, and, itthere is any
chance, they have no compuncions of poll
science about rmking the betkpossible use
of it. , • •
