The Nomination of General Taylor?Tlio Power of the Independent Pitsi, The influence exercised by a free and independent press, in a free and independent country, is boundless. It pervades every avenue of society, and makes itself heard in the councils of the State and of the nation?in the halls of justice, in the hotel and in the closet?in fact, every where. It is feared and dreaded by the corrupt and profligate, and admired and cherished by the honest and virtuous portion of the people. The independent press of the 1'nited States has leached an eminence, and has become possessed of a power, that entitles it to rank, among the powers of government, as a fourth estate; and yet as influential as any?the legislative, the executive, and the judicial being the other three. The measures which are discussed and brought to the attention of the people by the independent press, are' thoroughly digested and taken in iiand by the legislature, framed into laws by that body, carried out by the executive, and administered by the judiciary on the bench, in the courts of justice It is needless to refer to instances to ni ? ?l>i< proposition. Every one of our readers remembers them in the history of the United States, for the last ten years. The influence of the independent press lias, however, lately been exercised in a wider sphere. It has been felt and acknowledged in the recent Wmg National Convention in Philadelphia, convened for the purpose of nominating candidates for the Presidency and Vice Presidency, to be suj>ported by that party at the ensuing election. Several candidates were before that body, the most prominent of whom were General Taylor and Henry Clay. The nomination of the former of these gentlemen was urged on many grounds, one of which was, that it would be acceptable to the country, because he was first taken in hand and mentioned for that office by the independent press of the Atlantic cities; and lie was nominated Tins was a high tribute to the indej>endent press; but it was deserved. The AVic York llerald was the first journal (hat promulgated the idea that he was worthy of the Presidency. We observed his coolness, sagacity and determination in the victorious conflicts on the 11 io Grande, and wc immediately thought that he was the man for the ]>eopie, and that such characteristics as he displayed *>o those occasions would not go unrewarded. Ife was afterwards taken in hand by the politicians; hut not until we had reiterated the opinion that he would yet he nominated by the people. This is the first time, we believe, in the history ol the independent press, that its influence has been l?*lt in the selection of candidates for the Presidency; and considering the short time that has --laps' d since its commencement, it augurs well for the control which tt is destined hereafter to cxer? i*e on similar occasions. The inde[iendent press of New kork, Philadelphia, Boston nnd Baltimore, constitute, at the present moment, the grent centre of intellect aud thought of the American confederacy; most esjccially those of the two first named t itieg. Ii is a department of government that speaks plainly Htid honestly its views on matters of public weal?that is always in session?that is ever vigilant nnd never asleep?that dares to sj?eak the truth openly and broadly, without regard to consequences, and rank* as the great conservative jmwer of the Stale. Such is the independent press now. What will ii be in twenty-five years hence 1 Nnilnr Affairs Lll'Sts or ins Cncsoskb.?This tine strain-packet wl) be Ia8bched this afternoon, at 6 o'clock, from Mr. Webb's yard f -otof Houston streot.

J?V T f i ! i m *t ii, Mi Coxork-swe* EutcTtoNKKRixa.?Uur readers ate aware that when the Democratic National Convert- . tion was about to assemble at Baltimore, the two I houses of Congress adjourned for the purpose of ; uuowiag 111 niL-mSier* u> attend 11, una a similar movement was made in relation to the Whig Na- 1 tional Convention, which is yet in session at Philadelphia. Between these two conventions, nearly a fortnight of the time of Congress has heen lost?an im- ! niense amount of the people's money lias been wasted?and, in addition to all this, the interests | I of the people and of the country have been neglect- J ed. The members draw their eight dollars per day, while they are thus wasting their time in making electioneering tours to Baltimore and Philadelphia, and endeavoring to interfere with tlis choice of the people in their candidates for the Presidency. This conduct should be denounced. Apart from the direct waste of money, Congress have abundance of national matters, of the highest moment, I reuuirinir their attention and leawlation Who, business hnve the several members to be dodging about the cities of Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York! What business have they to be loafing about our streets, and electioneering for General Cass, or Generul Taylor, or any other candidate! It would be much better if they had remained at Washington, and attended to their duties as legislators?the business for which they were elected, and for which they are paid. The money which they draw front the people while they are electioneering, would go a good way towards constructing an ocean steamer for our navy, of which the country is in much need at present. If they wish to forward the election of any particular candidate, let them do so after the adjournment of Congress. Don't do so uny more?there's good boys. The Recent Irish Demonstration?Its Political Purposes.?The Globe, of this city, which is the organ of one set of the politicians who figured so philanthropically at the Irish demonstration at the Tabernacle, on Monday last, says, that because we were unable to break the moral force of "that demonstration, we have chosen to assail it with dishonest and pultry misrepresentations of its objects and purposes. This accusation is wrong. We feel as much sympathy for Ireland in her misfortune, as any of the spouters at that demonstration do. We do not wish to destroy the moral force which the sympathy of any part of the world may have on England, in favor of Ireland ; but we wish to destroy the political influence which is thought to be created here, by a few out-of-office politicians, who wish to attain what they have in view by organising the foreign citizens into a distinct political party, to vote for such candidates as these designing men will dictate to them. This is what we wish to destroy; and believing as we do, that the demonstration in question was concocted for that purpose, we would be false to our position if we did not openly denounce their motives. The columns of our journal, for a series of years past, will prove that we deeply sympathize with the cause of Ireland, and would gladly see her eight or nine millions of people take their stand among the nations of the earth, freo and untrammelled by foreign dominion; but we have no idea that the wrongs which that country has endured for ages, and is still enduring, shall be used as stepping stones to reach office, position, or emolument in this country. This is what we condemn, and we shall continue to deprecate it. We desire not a repetition of the scenes that followed Bishop Hughes' organization of the Irish voters, a few years since: We desire not to see edifices dedicated to the ever-living God, desecrated by a mob, and burned to the ground by an infunated multitude. We desire not to see the streets of a neighboring city run again with the blood of its citizens; nor to see the revealed word of God hoisted around the streets of New York at the end of a pole, and made the rallying cry of the ranks of a : faction that care for neither God nor man. We considered it our duty, as un independent i journalist, pledged to no particular party or interest, and caring no more for one than another, to dej nounce, promptly and severely, the motives which I we think actuated the politicians who were at the : bottom of the recent Irish demonstration in the I Tabernacle. These gentlemen are always overflowing with sympathy for Ireland about election ' times : but at all other periods, tliev care no more lor Ireland, or her misfortunes, than the natives of 1 Timbuctoo do. We denounced the motives of | these gentlemen?and we repeat what we said 011 that occasion, and reiterate our belief?that the I objects of the getters up of that affair were purely personal; and instead cf its being a demonstration for Ireland, we believe it was n demonstration on the Irish voters, to be followed up until after the Presidential election, and then to be heard of no j more Mr. Levin, Member 01* Congress, on Major Tochman's Ca?e.?One of our Washington correspondents, in giving a brief statement of the case of Major Tochman, which was brought before the House of Representatives the otherday, undertakes to attribute improiwr motives to Mr. Levin for his advocacy in that affair. Mr. Levin, it appears, advocates the side of Major Tochman, who is a naturalized citizen of the J United States, though formerly he was one of the Polish subjects of the Emperor of Russia. Our ; correspondent, in our opinion, does marked injustice to the motives and conduct of Mr. Levin, in attributing such a feeling as malevolence I to him lor advocating the cause of the person above I mentioned. Mr. Levin was formerly a very warm I and excitable native politician in Philadelphia, and was at one time editor of a native paper in that city. During the movement which grvwoutof the folly ol the Irish leaders, both of the press und of the altar, in New York, Mr. Levin, in consequence 1 of the warm part he took in that excitement in Philadelphia, was nominated and elected a member of Congress for that city. Possibly the course which Mr. Levin took at that time of dangerous j excitement may have produced some ill feeling to" ' wards him in (he minds of many persons, which yet lingers, and breaks out occasionally, to his prejudice. We think, however, it is doing gross injustice to Mr. Levin, both us a man and as a member of Congress, to ascribe motives of male volence to him for supporting MajorTochman, because he is a naturalized citizen, on account of Mr. L's former connection with nativism. We | know Mr. Levin personally and publicly. As a inan he possesses m?.ny excellent traits; and nsto politics, in all |>olitical excitements, all politicians more or less, run not. We think, therefore, it is unjust in our correspondent to speak of Mr. Levin in such terms? and we totally dilfer trorn such an opinion as that which attributes malevolence to him. On the contrary, we are of the opinion that Mr. Levin has exhibited a generosity of spirit for which he ought to receive credit?even from those who formerly j most deprecated his course in reference to the Irish naturalized citizens of this country.

This is a most remarkable fact; and the slave population of the other Islands in the West Indie \ we believe, presents a similar feature?a decrease during the last few years. In the British West indies, where slavery has been abolished, the population of the colored race has not only been diminished, but demoralized, by receiving that very liberty which was considered so gr<Mt n boon by European philanthropists. In the island of Ilayti, where the same race have enjoyed perfect J and uncontrolled liberty,with self-government,also, for many years, they are even in a worse state of degradation, demoralization and diminution of numbers. Liberty, united with political power seems even a worse boon than liberty without political power. All the West India Islands seem to be utter wrecks. Now, when we turn to the same race in the Southern States of this I'nion, what a contrast do we behold! During the last forty years the negro race of the South have increased from one to three millions, at least. Their comforts, morals, conveniences and enjoyments are far superior to those of the same race in the West Indies, either as slaves, freemen, or holding political pewer, as in Hayti. What is the reason of ail this difference 1 Can we account for it in any other way than that the negroes of the South are under the control, influence and example of a superior race?that of the i Anglo-Saxon I And do not these broad facts show j that the Africans, as a race, ure incapable of producing, by the same political and personal rights, the like degree of general happiness, such as the white race exhibit and enjoy I The English Government in their West India policy, have much to answer for. Trial of the Model Artists?Their Conviction.?The trial of two men, who were engaged, some time since, in exhibiting naked men and women, under the specious name of Model Artists, was brought on in the Court of Sessions in this city on Wednesday last, and resulted in their conviction and punishment?the prisoners having been sentenced to pay a fine of one Hundred dollars eacn, and to be confined for thirty days in the city prison. This is ended as it ought to have ended, and its conclusion may be looked upon as a vindication of law and morality, over the worst form of lasciviousness and vice. It reflects credit on our city, and proves that, though vice and immorality may flourish for a day, the law of the land, backed and supported by a sound and virtuous public opinion, is abundantly capable of repressing it, and punishing the offenders. An amusing scene took place in the examination of one of the witnesses for the defence, who swore that Madame Adolph, a famous fortune teller in this city, informed him that Mr. McKeon went to her house and consulted her in regard to the chances of the election. This, as might be expected, nonplussed the District Attorney,and convulsed the spectators and the court. It is due to Mr McKeon to say, that he peremptorily denied having had the consultation in question, having the fullest confidence how the election would terminate. The verdict will be approved by the whole community, and we hope will be a warning to evil doers hereafter. The conviction in this case was, however, as far as an abatement of the evil is concerned, a work of supererogation. Public opinion had already stamped these exhibitions with the seal of condemnation. Patronage was entirely withdrawn from them; so that they died for want of encouragement. This speaks volumes in favor of the moral tone of the commercial emporium, and shows that, composed as our population is, of cit izens of even- country, us well as of our own. ? vein ox decorum ana virtue runs mrougn it, which will difccourage ticious und demoralizing exhibitions of all kinds. We have successfully vindicated our character in this matter, and can again ' take our stand as a virtuous community, having purged ourselves of the stigma that was attached to us, by the impunity with which these exhibitions were conducted for a time.

Last week ua* somewhat a dull ouefor theatricals; the political excitement about this time, and the numerous public meetings held, hacl the effect of somewhat thinning the bouses; and we suppose the very unpleasant weather had also a share In contributing to the diminished attendance, as every evening, we be- . iifve. wo had ehowors of rain during the oarly part of i the evening. Park Theatre.?This house, wo understand, is re- ! fitting in the most approved and elegant modern stylo, I and when it will bo able to compare favora- j 1>Iy with tho most spend id houses in town: and as for I thn doings on tho stage, a first rate company will be .gathered together, and the high and palmy days of Old Orury will be restored we fully believe. Of the period of its ro-opening we are not aware; we presume it will be within a few weeks Uowert Theatre.?The engagement of .Miss Mary Taylor, and her appearance here this evening, will no doubt draw a crowded house. Miss T. is a very great favorite, and deservedly so She has grown up among us in New York, und though young iu years, the early ago at which sho commenced her thf atrlcal career, has given her full experience in all matters pertaining to the stage ; and moreover, she has great talents, which enable her to make use of this experience to the beat advantage. As an actress, she Is. we may say, unequalled for versatility, and unlike versatile geniuses generally, every thing she does, she does well. Asa singer, her reputatiou is established as one of the sweetest and also scientific singers among us. We expect her present engagement will be a most successful one. She will appear this evening in tho favorite drama of -'Cherry and Fair Star." This drama will be producodwith great magi'deeneo ns to scenery, he., ana the agreeable diversity of srnat t dialogue and pretty song?.render It a very ontertaluing piece. The regular company will muster stroug in the caste also. Besides Cherry. Miss T. will appear as Marion, in tho " Pride of tho Market," a character sho has made entirely her own. The comedy of " Is He Jealous," will precede the spectacle of ' Cherry and Kair Star." Niulo's.?The charming little Vieunoise dancers remain yet a night or two, and this evening will go through several of their most admired dances. These little fairies are such fatorites with the public, that we do uotsve how we can ever let them go; but it seems the case admits of no alternative; go they must, therefore the best tliiug to bo done is to see them as often jLfl nnKsihlo. hnfnrfi th??v ilpnurt WA.ln.oti. John Softon. Mm. Mueilcr. and the other members of the dramatic company, will perform also this evening, in the laughable farces of "The Man Without a Head." and "John Jone3." Such an elegant bill, performed in euch a magnificent theatre, cannot fail to attraot a largo audience. Chatham Theatre.?Mr. H. P. Grattan has been engaged at this house, and will appear this evening, in the drama of the "Rebel Chief." He will take the part of Edward O'Brien, the chief. This is a most interesting drama, founded on occurrences in Ireland in -98, we believe. Mr. Grattan is well known as a fine delineator of such characters as O'Brien, and we look to see the house crowded to-night. Besides the "Rebel Chief," the farce of "New York Milliners." and the drama of The Chain of Guilt," will be performed. The Chatham has beoome such a popular place of resort, that a thin house is uow the exception, a full one the rule. We do not wouder at it, as the eompany, and the way things are managed, are both first rate. Castle Garden.?The delightful summer weather which, we trust, has now fairly set In, will make a visit to this charming place one of the pleasantest in town, particularly as the performances there to bo witnessed are of the most refined and amusing description. Holland. Nickinson, G. Andrews. Mrs. Vernon, Miss M-Kinson, and many others are among the company, and the pieces produced by these artists will always be admirably performed with most splendid accessories of scenery, dresses, decoratious. &c. To-night, for instance, the very laughablo farce of ' Done on both sides." aud the drama of" Lavater the Physiognomist" will be played. Suitable intermissions will bo allowed for promenade and refreshments ; and where can a finer promenade, or. Indeed, betti r refreshments be procured than in this splendid hall. Wo would mention that the garden is open between sunrise and 6. I'. M . for visitors who wish to avail them selves of its tlue breezes and heulthy oceanic air. Admission during tlioso hours 12>? cents j iu the evening, to the performances, 25 cents. Citizens who remain in town during summer, and strangers visiting our city, will find it a most delightful resort. Christy's Minstrels.?These singers will proceed with their inimitable couccrts every evening this week. Tho whole city?and for that matter, the Union, too?are so well acquainted with the great merits of these singer a. that we need only to say they seem to get better and better every day. Bottesini. Aiiditi and Desyernine's Grand Concert at the Tabernacle this evening, just comes at the right time, as tho town is at present and has been, since the downfall of the Italian Opera Company, laboring under an excessive dearth of music of tho Italian order ? This concert, therefore, will serve as n refresher to those who yearn for such pleasure. Bottrsini has been tylnil the I'sfiann ni of the violoncello. :i curious instrument. certainly, to extract delightful solo strains from, but so it is ; lie manages it most originally and artistically. Arditl is an admirable violinist, ami Dosrerniue a pianist of great attainments. The ever popular ami charming Mad. Pico, ami Sig Vietti, will give their assistance. and altogether, as the programme includes so many excellent pieces of music, alTordiug all of these | eminent artistR an opportunity of showing to advantage. we expect that this concert will be the most admirable one of the season. Bamako's P a s o it a m a will not remain here much longer. The proprietor contemplates soon taking it to i Europe. Those, therefore, who wish to see it, had bet- i tcr avail themselves of the opportunity soon. It is. undoubtedly, one of the grandest specimens of paint- | ing. on the large scale, ein-r seen in this country. Hi'mon's Paxobami of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers will be opened for public exhibition this evening, at the Apollo Booms. Mr. Hudson has received a great num- | bcr of certificates from those engaged in the business of traveling over those parts of the rivers which he has | represented, and the universal opinion is that his pa- ; noratnaisa most correct p.n<l graphic one. It represents fully HOu miles of country, and. we doubt not. it will become a most popular exhibition. Soi'tii Amkhican Ixdiax ft riositiks.?We would ' call the attention of our readers to the exhibition of , South American curiosities, which will bo opened this 1 day. at .>00 Broadway. They ore most remarkable oil- I riositios. and show how truly -necessity is the mother of invention;" for the savnges. by whom they were made, are destitute of anything like tools or iron, and ; yet many of the specimens aro as finely finished as the 1 most skilful civilized workman could make them. The exhibition will be open fraiu 10 A. M. to 10 P. M. . Mr.i.ooEON.?The entertainments nt thin house go on an amusingly ever. Those Virginia Minstrels are . making for themselves n great nnuie and reputation as Ethiopian singer*. The programmAfor this even- ; inn is very full. City liitelll^vrirc* Tin: Wri riirs.?The weather yesterday was perfect- I ly delightful. A fine breeze blew from the west nil day. | and not n cloud appeared to hide the brightness of the i sun.

Officer Gilgan, of the Sixth ward police, while on his rounds on tho Five Points on Friday night, observed a man lying on the sidewalk, in Little Water street, without hat or coat, in a stupid state of intoxication : he picked him up and carried him to the station house, where, on coming to, he said his name was Isaac Morehouse, and resided when at home four miles from Somerville. New Jersey It appoars from his story, that he visited the Five Points to see the sights : and in doing so. fell in compauy with several belles of that region, who inticed him into a dance house, induced him to drink, and in that, some drug was mixed,which effected the poor countrymen's head, so that he soon became stupidly drunk i n* tmeves at once nocked around the greenhorn ; the first one turned his pockets inside out and stole l?iB money. The next thief, carried off his coat; the next his hat. and the last was just taking off his boots when detected by the officer. Thus Mr. Morehouse, in search of sights, was thrown into the dark, with the loss of hie money, coat, and hat. aud would beyond a doubt have lost his boots, and perhaps his life, had he not been taken care of by the policeman.

This case, which occasioned considerable interest at New Orleaus. a short time since, is not quite settled yet. It nppeared that her name was registered by the magistrate, who married her to Mr. Proctor, as Klnrella Marshall, but she sues for a divorce as Kate Meadows. She still insists that it was well and distinctly understood that her future husband was to be satisfied merely with the name of "lord." and was not to venture lipon any privileges and immunities whatever, and, in fact, and in plain Saxon, that the marriage was never to be consummated. The defendant, says the Dtlla. has employed counsel, learned in the law. to defend him They have filed an answer on his behalf, denying all the plaintiff's allegations, except the "fixed fact'' of the marriage, und suggesting that all those portions of her pleadings relative to ''consummation,'' "matrimonial privileges and rights." be., are indecent, indelicate, impertinent, totally uncalled for. and should be considered by the court as though they had nnrnp lmon moiln nnfumlanl onnnl?*!!?. ,l?nUa - espoused the damsel with any such reservation anil limitation as set forth by her. He insists that there was no such ''understanding" on the subject, and that he is entitled in law. justice, and "substantial equity."' to "all the honors" nnd inmunities exercised, enjoyed, possessed and maintained by husbands in general nnd bridegrooms in particular for so long a time that the memory of man runneth not to the coutrary. The fair plaintiff has filed a supplemental petition, praying for a trial by jury. It is a very queer and funny case as it stands. St'Pcnion Coi'BT.?Before Judge Sandford.?John II. Urovning and John P. Hull vi. %'llfrtd Dalttmt.?This was an action of trespass on the case to recover damages for forcible entry, kc. It appeared the plaintiffs and defendant occupied the store No. 7 Pine street? the plaintiffs the first floor, basement, and sub-basement. or cellar, and the defendants the second story, except a small part in the rear, at foot of the stairs leading to the second floor, where there was erected a set of folding doors, extending from the foot of said stairs to a pillar which, with others, sustains the front wall of the building. Those doors swing towards, and are closed anil fastened on the inside of the defendant's premises. The plaintiffs allege that the doors are of great importance to persons occupying the store, giving great facility of ingress and egress into and from the first story, and that the fall which belongs to the store can ouly be used by having access to it through those doors. It appeared that In 1840. the defendant closed those folding doors, by which he prevented all ingress and egress to and from the cellar; and also cut the rope, and afterwards spliced It. and caused the hatchway to be nailed down. Hy these operations. l)o deprived the plaintiffs of the use of the fall, to raise and lower their goods; and also of the collar or sub-basement. The plaintiffs insist that all the occupants of the store were tenants in common, and had a common right to the use of those appurtenants ; aud that being deprived of the use of them, they were greatly injured and Inconvenienced In carrying on their bueineee. The defence net up wan that nlntntifT.s were leasees of the premises. and that in 1R40 they surrendered their leape. upon which the defendant took out a new leape, reperving to htmsolf the ezelupive right to the folding doorp. hatchway and fall. He alpo attempted to prove that it wae the usage amongst nierohanti that where doors wore fastened on the Inside of their premisep. that they had the right to fapten. and keen them elopod when they pleaped. The Judge in charging the jury, paid that the leape gave the defendant no exxlupive rights -that with regard to the hatchway and fall, the partiep have a common right; and the only queatlon they had to consider on tbopo points, wap as to the amount of damages.

The advices received by the Acadia have bad no material influence upon our markets: the slight effect , noticed is rather unfavorable than otherwise. Prices I fur cotten drooped upon the reception of the reports o f | the Liverpool market. Prices for breadstuffs are not ! affected much either way. on this side, by the slight | variations In price in England. Our domestic demand for consumption is such as to keep prices above a re- munerating point, and the reduced supply prevents any accumulation of stock in the seaport markets, it is the opinion of many engaged in the trade, that prices for breadstuffs must, before the close of the sea son, rule very low?lower than have been known for many years past. Circumstances certainly are in favor of this: but we cannot agree with them. Tho absenoe of an external demand of any importance, and tho favorable prospects of an abundant harvest, are strong evidences in favor of a very great redaction in I priees; but the farmers are not disposed to submit to any groat decrease from those now current j if they , cannot get such prices as are sufficiently remunerative, they will keep back their supplies. The farmers are much more able to do so now, than they have before been for soveral years. The stock of breadstuffs in the interior must be very large; the crops of last year have not been brought out, the demand for flour ( for shipment having ceased just at harvest time last season; and it must be admitted that the quantity of grain raised in 1847, oxceedod that of any one of the previous ten years. The high prices current at planting and sowing timo, gave a great impetus to production, and the breadth of land cultivated in the fall of 1846 and spring of 1847, was probably greater than in any previous year within the history of the country. , The harvest of 1847 must, therefore, have been unusually prolific, very little of which has, as yet, reaohed market. Those who infer from the reduced receipts, that tho supply in the interior is smaller than it was , at the same period last year, make a great mistake ; and if they govern themselves accordingly in their operations in the article, may be sorely deceived. We have seen what an Immense quan my ot grain ana Hour was brought to the leaboard from the West, in the fall of 1840 and spring of 1847, when price* ranged high and iuoh large profits were guarantied, without any previous knowi ledge upon which an Increased production was ensured. The supplies received in those seasons, were from the usual harvests of the country; but the surplus may have been acumulating for many seasons,In consequence of the low range of prices ruling. When such immense quantities of breadstuff* were brought out in that way, what can wo not expeet when every producer in the country brings into cultivation every acre of old land, and as much new as can be prepared in season for the seed, and is induoed, by the prospect of an extensive demand and high prices, to raise every bushel of grain in his power. The harvests of 1847 were the result of these incentives, and the quantity of breadstuffs in the hands of the producers must be very great. The receipts thus far this, have not been so large as In either of the two previous seasons, even with the Mgh prices which have ruled since the opening ot navigation; and the probability is, that the aggregate for the year will not exceed, and perhaps not equal, that of 1846. IVc havo so much confidence In the ability of the producing classes to hold, that It is eur impression that even the favorable prospects of an abundant har, vest this year will not induce them to bring out the bulk of their old crops beforo the new is harvested. At the rate of receipts realised since the openidg of canal navigation, we shall not accumulate a very large stock for winter consumption, as it requires about the i entire transportation for two months, at least, to give a supply sufficient to meet the demand on the Atlantic coast through the winter. The annual consumption of the seaboard markets is immense, and is increasing at a rapid rate. This demand is already so large that prices, even in the absence of au important demand for shipment, be sustained at high points, as will be seen by the daily quotations. In view of all these facts, we do not soe how thero can be any great depreciation in the market value of breadstuffs ; but, on tho contrary, we Bee every probability of present prices being maintained for tho largest portion of the season. For a short timo after the approaching harvest, prices may decline; but the necessity for providing for winter consumption, will restore them again to the present level. At ruling rates, the farmers get pretty well paid for their labor, and flour should not go below five dollars a barrel to remunerate the producer.
