Now It Is said that the bank will lseue lb mil- I lions or frano* of these new notes, in the first days ot !

Then ' the friends of VI Dumon say. that besides the 3ft mil- : lions whioh would be taken in the loan by the bank, ibe I Cantr dn P-p its et Conngnatiuns will also subsorlbe for a similar sum. so that the loan to be subscribed by I private bankers would be only 300 millions. The first effect of the loan advertisement has been an Improvement of flftc on the three per cents among the specula tor* of the Coulisse, who had met on Sunday last at th<passage of the opera, and the three per cent-< rose Im mediately from 7ftf 6c to 7ftf 7ftc But this rise wa* not of long duration, as on the next morning the Loudon express brought the prioe of the English consols at 8IX, with gloomy apprehensions of a further decline ? However, our funds have been struggling against the general dislike of in vesting at this moment In the French stock, and tbe three per cents had no great variation at vesterday'i bourse, when they ranged from 7ftf. 60o. to 76f 40c.

State of Trade. Manchei m:h, Oct. 10 ?The shipping trad* continues depressed, and prices, both in yarn and cloth, are very iireguiar and unquotable Orders are held by some of ihe agency houses to a considerable extent, which could no be executed favorably enough, but uncertainty In tbe rates of disoount for paper, added to th* want of confidence which results from tbe failures on every hand, makes commercial men of every class careful how they enter into new engagements Spinners and manufacturers are for the same reason contracting the rat* of proiluotion. whilst mills are every week being added to ih? list of those which have btopped altogether Many of tbe smaller houses decline to do business at all, except for cub. More indifference Is manifested respecting the threatened turn uut of the operatives en masse than the reoolleotion of a similar event in 1843 would seem to warrant, for It can hardly be expected that large bodies of men turned looae upon our street*, whose improvident habits in a general way will have left them without a week's provision beforehand,will wander about day by day and week by week, sensible of the dismay and intimidation whloh their presenoe in suoh numbers must create, without scenes of disorder The day for the cessation of labor is not finally determined upon, but | the Stockport and Ashton operatives contemplate so ! early a date as the 21st Inst.

Birmingham, Oot. 16?Hardware?It is too soon after quarter-day for anv alteration to have taken place in ibe state of trad* here; with the exoeptlon of a few branches, however, there is a good deal of depression, although of late tbe orders from America and elsewhere have not been inconsiderable. An artiole whloh appears in the 7\mei of to-day, referring to the prosperous condition of commercial ooneerns in this town and the district, has giveu rise to an almost universal feeling of indignation, that any publio writer should have dared to treat a subject of to much importanoe with ridicule, and of surprise, that one could have been found to betray so much of ignorance. '1 he prosperous oonditlon of the iron trade of the district has been mistaken for th* prosperity of the general manufacturing interest of the town, and the idea in the mind of the writer seems to have been that the one followed the other as a matter of course. Nothing, however, can be wider of the mark, or more oontrary to tbe fact Week after week in this journal, for months past, we have reported the depressed mat* of trade here, and have also pointed out how seriously prejudicial was the high price of iron to certain branches of our manufactures. Further, under this bead, only a week or two back, it was pointed out t aat dered heavy casualties lens probable than Id Lancashire and other parts of the country.

The American steamship Washington, Captain Hewitt, from Southampton, has been at sea nearly fourteen days, and is about due. The heavy north-west gales we have experienced during the past two days have no doubt somewhat impeded her progress; but as she made her outward trip in quicKer time than the Britannia, it is our impression that she will make her voyage home compare us favorably with the Caledonia's. The Washington will bring tive days later intelligence from England, and her arrival is anxiously looked for. We are prepared to see another long list of failures, and gloomy accounts of the revulsion; but as every day brings the bottom nearer and nearer, we are under the impression that we shall nee something in our advices from ; the other side,by this steamer orfthe next, giving I Home hopes of a mitigation of the evils weighing | so heavily upon the commercial community of Great Britain^ Cams* and BfTact. In the midst of the great commercial crisis which is at thia moment shaking tha foundations of English credit till they totter again with fearful threatening, it is curious to notice the efforts of the different politicians in England to account for the causes of such wide spreading calamity. It is not our intention to enter upon the task of feeling the pulse of this big and unwieldy patient, and of pronouncing our judgment upon the nature of his disease, or giving a prescription for his cure. We can only look at the giant in the violent throes and convulsions of His agony, shake our heads, and sav. "we pity you, and are very sorry for you " The disease under which the patient is suffering, we believe to be very complicated, of very long standing, and of a very hopeless character, chiefly, however, from the obstinacy of the patient and his utter repugnance to taking the proper remedies The chief symptoms of the disease, we notice, are the following. There is an unnatural plethora and fullness of blood in some of the smaller extremities; while a general atrophy and tabes seem to waste away and destroy the great trunk o? body of the patient. The head, and some of the smaller viscera, are much swelled and gorged with blood, while the more vital parts are sadly deficient in proper supply and nourishment.? Thus, in our own private opinion, the disease consists in an unequal distribution of the vital and nourishing principle throughout the whole body; some parts, few in number, have too much, and are rendered unnaturally turgid and diseased. while other parts receive little if any sup plv, and sink into a deadly atony and atrophy. Such, we sav, is our private opinion?but the obstinacy of the pttient is such, that though we are confident our advice might cure him, we shall not press it upon him. A? it is, however, we fear thst under his present adviser's and physicians, the patient, if he is not destroyed, is certain of becoming much worse. We shall only notice here the opinion of one of the sapient doctors who are attempting to patch up the invalid ; he is called the " Times," and is among the most dogmatic, pragmatic, and pedantic, of all ihemany quacks who take the patient's I case under their especial care and keeping. ' I The opinion pronounced by the " Timet," as published in our paper of yesterday, was the following:?"That the ruin of the country is exclusively attributable to the inordinate appetite of the railroad companies to consume capital." Here we would point out, in the very statement and terms of the opinion, a gross blunder and absurdity. " To consume capital!" Could any idea be more ridiculous'? Doe* not everybody know that these works distribute capital, and ' do not consume it ? Taking this as granted, as I being the fact, then the opinion of the Timet, properly worded, will read thus:?that "the ruin of the country is exclusively attributable to the tendency of the railroad companies to distribute capital." Now, when the opinion of this dogmatic doctor is thus KrnnflrKt int/\ nrnnAr nnH infill iaihlp Ian mm pp. its absurdity and ignorant empiricism become manifest. For, as we stated at the first, we believe the truth to be that the patient fs dying from the want of a greater and more equable distribution of nourishing capital; and here comes the Times, and says" that it ia this very distribution of capital which is the cau e of the disease ! We think the absurdity and folly of the opinion is at once self-evident What hopes, we would ask, are to be entertained for the Bick und suffering patient, when its best accredited doctors are so blinded as to believe, or profess to Selieve, that the action which alone can cure the disease, is the cause of the disease 1 We would idvise the patient (but that we know our advice will not be well received) to trust no longer to -uch advisers as the Timet, but to send over to us here in America, to see our healthy and vigorous condition,and to learn the fact?the undeniable fact?that it proceeds in the operation of proximate causes, from the abundant, copious ?nd equable distribution of capital throughout all the. branches, all the vessels, all the part?, streat and small, of the whole bady politic. Lm this distribution cease among us?let monopoly ggregate wealth in the hands of the few? let !?rimogeniture do the same?then, in a short time, we should be discovered to be in the verv tame suffering, languishing and agonising con ilition as our poor brother and friend on the other tide of the water. Bkllevitk and Black well's Island Hospitals ?The ordinance lately passed by the Common Council, and approved by ihe Mayor, in re f>rence to the tuture arra gements 01 me aoovementioned hospitals, is one of considerable interest, not only to the city at large, but also to the medical profession, whose just claims in the management of these institutions have at last been rerogn One excellent feature in the appointments is, that politics will have nothing to do with them, and professional capacity alone will be the test for admission. We here give a list of the appointments to be filled, and the sa laries to be piid. The amount mentioned opposite the various offices is the entire compeniation, there being no further emoluments, perquisites, or fees of any kind whatev is is right, as under the old regime at Bellevua, then were quite too many fees and perquisites, imounting tometimes to more than the salary of the office.

They consist of the consultingphysicians and | surgeons, and visiting physician* and surgeons, ! who, with the raaident physicians (salaried offii cers) are to be appointed by the Common Council. The assistant physicians and apothecaries (a ihried) are to be appointed by the resident, visiting, and consulting physicians and surgeons, who constitute the medical board ui the hospi* t&ig; and a satisfactory examination must be passed before this board, previous to the assistant physician being allowed to take his station. We have no doubt that under this new ar- j rangement things will be conducted much more satisfactorily than they lately have been u* liellevue; and as some of the best medical men of the city are among the applicants for the situations of visiting physicians and surgeons, every thibg that medical science is capable of, will doubtless be done for the numerous patients who crowd these institutions. . In order to avoid aHy unpleasantnebs, as regards the distribution of these offices, would it not be well to adopt the French mode of electing hospital surgeons and physicians, viz : by concuurn ! Could that plan be adopted, it would, beyond a doubt, be the fairest one, and, moreover, giv>* a chance to every one win may cli'-ose to try fot the office. Velpeau, Jules Cloquet, Jobert, and in- i deed all of the most eminent French surgeons of the present day, owe their positions to the ad vantages gained by them in the public contours for hospital stations. Who knowsbut what such a plan carried out in New York, might not also bring to light some equally intelligent and splendid American surgeons 1 At all events it ought to be tried. Thk Washington?Oitward I'assaubs of thk Steamers.?We have received a number of letters from passengers who went out in the Washing, bearing high testimony to her sea-worthiness and capabilities. It will be observed by extracts from a few of these letters, that the alterations made upon her previous to her voyage, have, as was anticipated, proved effectual, rendering her, according to the opinions of persons of experience, the easiest and best sea boat running. Her passage, when compared with the Britannia's and the French steamer's,shows a decided superiority in speed, as well an in the most essential qualities of a first class ship. The terrible easterly gale which, it will be remembered done bo much damage to the shipping on the 26th of September, overtook the Washington, and, it appears, accompanied her across the Atlantic The French steamer New York, which left New York on the 15th of September, arrived at Cherbourg on the 14th October, in nineteen days passage. The Cunard steamer Britannia left Boston on the 1st of October, and arrived at Liverpool on the 16th inst. in fifteen days. The American steamer Washington left New York late in the afternoon of the 23d Septe nber, reached Southampton on the 8th of October, in fifteen day*. The difference in the distance between the Liverpool and Southampton route, is about three hundred miles. The French steamer Union, which sailed from tnia city on the 30th September, had not arrived out when the Caledonia left. Accounts from Havre are to the 17th, thus giving her at leas seventeen days:? The following extracts are but a specimen of a number which came to hand by the Caledonia One is from a ladyr 'The ship 1b sunerior in every point. We took thf wind in our teeth at Sandy Hook. and kept it for sine successive day*, with a ten-knot breexe all the while, and at the expiration of that time a succession of gales from the tame quarter came on, which luted till wr were within a day of Southampton. The ship is the best ana boat In the world, an I believe, standing upright in all winds an* weather." " The voyage was much more pleasant than I expected, although we bad a severe gale all the way; but never did a vessel perform its duties more gallantly than the Washington; but owing to the head all the way aoross, we made a muoh longer passage across than wan expected " " I have the pleasure to advise you of our safe arrival in the Washington, on the morning of the 9th, after a pleasant and delightful passage, considering we had contrarv winds all the time. N Hither or mvself wern sick at all, and the Washington is no Una a sua"boat and go smooth, that I would wait a month to g? in her." These remarks will show which of the four steamers made the best time. The Washington will come oat with a good list of passengers. Iier agents in England have sold all the berths allotted to them. Thk Steamship Palmetto, from this city, arrived at New Orleans on the 28th ult., in a short and pleasant passage. Theatrical and Musical. Th?

However, a glimmer might bo occasionally seen to issue from one of tboHo luminaries, which resembled a Will o' tho Wisp, seen through the inverted end of a telescope The fact in, our streets ought all to be lighted with hub. instead of the miserable system of bad oil and negligent lamplighters. The up town streets are almost daily fitted up with gas from appropriations made by the fommon Council, yet the down town streets, which ougl#. to reoeive the first attention, are most shamefully selected, through which we may attribute murders, higWuiy robberies, and street rowdyisms, which occur maioiy through badly livhted streets We do sinoerely h pe that the authorities will direct the lamps to be properly trimmed,for until tbegas is adopted It is Incuub-nt on them to see tbat the lamplighters do tbelr duty.
