In this season of the year it is Well known that but Little activity can be expected. We might spin out a Long article in regard to the peeing crop but believe Lall speculation on the subject to be futile. We will therefore confine our elves to a simple report of the facts that the Cotton top of this state has been materially injured by heavy Rains and that do not icel Merethe reports of those who Are of the opinion that the co Tim crop a Deetroy de nor of those who Are on Tho opposite a a tvs e. In our annual review stated that 175,000 Bales would a get about the Iamb not received Here it is right to state that the heavy rain have caused us to a Tange our opinion Worms have also done their a damage.

It Lias Oil n Bei n rom tue Kuil upon us a mint ter of Surprise a Teri so Large ii part of our Liat Onul debt is in Tho unset of form of Coupon a Lio mls luuk to be Iles troyed by lire lost by face ii it or tie Ives. We might suppose it first sight Quot that the registered Bonds Sciug Siller would bring n Kiger Prico in the Market. Quot but Liis is not so. However contrary to antecedent probability the reverse is True is u glance. At Oier Stock sex Olinge report will show la or Tho first Tiniuc in Tho history of the government a singular Uno Tiia by has in the past week been exhibited Jii Quot a difference of four per cent Between the quotations for i registered United states Bonds and i onion Bonds of the same issus. In inns really the species of buds Are of. The same value for they draw the same rate of interest mature at Tho same time i and Tho Coupon Bonds May to converted into the registered Bonds a it i the will of the owner who has ouly to take the trouble of sending then to Washington for that purpose. There Are several Points suggested by this anomaly which Mer t As to the Impje Diatsi cause of i there is not doubt at nil. The buds in which it exists Are known As the old five twenties of 1802. Which Are so exclusively dealt in Europe that no other species Are n Good delivery in fulfilment of contracts. The Bonds of 11-80.5, which Are really More valuable As they have three years longer to run Are not As yet known in Tho european Market though an Effortmaking to get hem introduced there. Lie Nee it is that the orders from abroad Rufi Xci naively on the old Fiva twenties and of course registered Bonds Are useless for exportation j Coupon Bonds being alone negotiable abroad. Now it is easy to see that when from any Cir Cums Anees a very Jiveh foreign Dejna nil i Springs up Tor our Bonds the coupons old five twenties will exclusively be called for and the Supply in Mai Ket being limited their Price will go up while that if the other Bonds May be either stationary or will Ai least be less Lively in their upward a movement. The old Bonds May be either san Donar or at least be less Lively in Quot their ii Ward it movement Tho old Bonds have sold As High As 11-1 Turing the. Recent excitement while the highest Price of the More valuable Bond of 1-sin 110. This however is not quite the whole the Case. To have explained Why the Bonds of 18g2 sell higher just now than those of 1865, but Why should the Coupon Bonds oif 1st2 \ sell higher than the registered Are not the j registered Bonds available for Export purposes by being sent to Washington to be sex j changed Lor Coupon Bonds the answer is that they Are not so available. The Law allows you to convert your Coupon Bonds into registered Bonds but it makes no provision for the reverse process of converting registered Bonds into Coupon. This unnecessary disability is much complained of and not unjustly. An Effort will be made at the next session of to get a new enactment passed removing these incongruities of the existing statutes regulating this important question of Tho reciprocal convert Ioa of Coupon adj registered Bonds into each other. There Are Hoilier reasons for a change in the Law besides those have referred to. And of these one of the chief is the Bonds. The recent heavy robberies of securities show How necessary it is it prevent the thief from negotiating stolen securities lint this is impossible with the Ordinary Coupon Bonds Yri Yieh Are payable to bearer for the courts hold that such a Bond passes from one hold it it it an o ther just As freely1 As Bank not.

To Leara from a Ashington that or. Ilc cello ii is contemplating the Issue this North or in october of Tho Long delayed five per cent government loan. He has by la a that Power to Emit if necessary Gold bearing Quot Bonds to represent the 73 millions of temporary deposits he is now paying off Aud also the certificates of indebtedness and other Short dated obligations which he Lias already met. There r is also no to doubt that the time will coma when five per cent Bonds of the United state will command Par both Here and abroad. or three months ago favo Rud the proposal that an Experiment should be made of issuing with the Moat circumspect caution a Small amount of five per cent Bonds to be followed by sur ther issues if Tho temper of the Public Buind should justify it. At Tho to Jive when this suggestion was made every thing seemed to con spire to make this movement a probable sue Cess the chief Points relied on being that during Tho dead season of the financial year the Money Market was easy while capital1 was abundant and might probably become More so inasmuch As foreign capital would in the disturbed state of things abroad flow aft undly to this Side und seizo upon so eligible an investment As a Long five per cent Bond the principal and interest of which Are payable in Gold. This propitious aspect of our financial affairs however was not. Continued. The procrastination of financial measures by Congress and still Niobe the unfortunate sales of government Gold in May last disturbed All calculations.
