SATURDAY'. December 28;1868. '
The main feature of the pist week was ,
, the tightness of the money market , thead
-1 Vance of the stock market and the firm
tone in the gold room. Although it , has
Icost 1-32 and even 1-18 per cent. per
. have gold cairied, yet the market ad
! vanced under l a light demand, and at the
eve of large payments of interest for bonds
Iby the Government and - the Pacitio Rail
,l roads. The unsettled condition of Euro
pean politics, as , well as the large ship
ments of currency to the cotton . States,
'were the main causes of these unexpected
changes' in the market.. A careful exami-.
nation of the reasons assigned for: a futuie
rise of tEe gold premium reduces them to
the tear that large shipments of gold
would have to be made, whilst our im
portware known to be small for the Season
and have fallen off coneiderably already;
the stagnation in all, kind of 'foreign busi
ness, especially dry goods, is very dis
couraging to largeimportations, and the
exports of cotton will keep pace with im
port:s of other merchandiae. An advance
of the gold premium for political causes
would have the effect of 'bringing down
the cries of our national bends, and thus
prevent large return shipments , of them in ,
exchange for 'gold; the only reasons for at y
advance in gold would have t 4 be looked
for at horde, and here there is none, since
i tt is not likely that Congress will yet med
dle with the currency question, otherwise
thaji seek a decrease of our currency
Bonds were dull during the week, but
rallied oa Saturday for the issues of 1865,
'O7 and '6B, the interest of which becomes
due Ja.nnary next; there is also more de
mand for Pacific, bonds for the purpose of
earning the accrued gold interest; yet, in
view of tae tight money market larger'
purchases may be delayed until after the
quarterly 'bank statement 'on January
Stocks retaain strong, .and nearly all the
Railroad shares are higher on - aceount of
the management of the large cliques; the
transactions at the stock exchange, how
ever, are ccrt'quedto mien purchlses, and
attempta by parties are made to dispose of
,their shares at high prices.
par local money market is devoid of,
any Interest. Allegheny Valley bonds
were, ranch - In demand about two weeks
/ago at from 82 .to 85, but .could sesreelY be
sold in large lots'at the average price.
Blltiill6BB for the past week has been dull
and unsatisfactory , in 'the retail line, and
taiga transactions are generally not entered
into before the close of the year.

aggregate, was as large as could have been
eXpeered u:.der existing circumstances, the
number sold reaching 500 head. Prime
shipping Cattle were in fair demand, and,
compared with last week, brought an ad
vance of from 25 to 30e per cwt., while the
commoner grades were very dull, and as
buyers were, very scarce, 'sold slowly at
any price. At the ' close to-day there are

The sheep market was very dull and
offish during the early part of the week
under the influence of large receipts but
has since, owing to diminished arrivals,
improved considerably, and to-day there
was a every fair demand, especially for
prime fat mutton sheep, of whicli there
were but very few to be bad. Prime to ex
tra may be quoted at 4,50 to 5 ces per
