8 a 9 There were several loans done during the month. The Secretary of the Treasury renewed several millions of treasury notes at 51 per cent. The State of Virginia has issued proposals for a loan of $6,000,000 at 6 per cent. A New York City Water Stock loan for $228,900, at 6 per cent, was offered, and awarded at 21 per cent premium. The whole amount of bids was $1,338,200. A State 6 per cent loan of $1,200,000 was taken at 101.17 a 101.71. Messrs. E. WHITEHOUSE, MORRISON & Sox have offered a new loan for $500,000 8 per cent land grant mortgage, redeemable 1878. This is for the Texas and New Orleans Railroad Company, and is secured by a mortgage upon 106 miles of railroad, that has cost $2,920,000, and also upon 768,000 acres of land. The coupons are secured by a separate trust of 76,800 acres of land, valued now at $600,000. The State of Texas donated sixteen sections of land per mile, and towns and individuals have increased the grant. The whole amount of construction bonds is $1,500,000.

With the abundance of money, the shipments of specie continue on a liberal scale, comparatively as follows :

The shipments caused some relaction in the amount held in the city, reducing it nearly two and-a-quarter millions from the close of May. Of the reduction a considerable portion was from the federal treasary. The arrival of specie from the interior to the seaboard was sufficiently large to supply the shipments abroad. The exchanges last year presented the same effect. The operations of the mint and the assay-office have been small, most of the specie going abroad as it arrives. The assay-office returns were as follows :

The accumulation of money at the different reservoirs, preparatory to the July dividends, caused some increase in the value of money, which again subsided when the payments were made. These payments were pretty large. The New York banks paid out $1,507,924, and the several States, and companies, and federal government carries the payments up to the neighborhood of $9,000,000. In Boston, according to the very accurate report of J. G. Martin, broker, the payments were, this year and last, at that point, as follows, July 1st :

1,908,732 There are other companies that will probably make dividends about this time, but not yet officially declared-among which are the Boston Exchange Company (quarterly,) Firemen's Insurance Company, Hamilton Woolen (quarterly,) and Massachusetts Mills Manufacturing Companies. Also, New Bedford and Taun. ton Railroad. The St. Louis Merchants' Bank dividend is to Boston stock. holders. The dividends payable in Charleston in July were $624,104, on banks. railroads, &c.

The total of dividends for July is larger than that of a year ago, and the list must be satisfactory to the bolders of the numerous stocks.

The increase in manufacturing dividends is decidedly gratifying, since it indicates the prosperity of general trade, as well as of the local companies. The demand from the spinners for raw cotton bas greatly increased in the last three months, and in that period it has been as large as for the corresponding period of 1859. The crop movement of cotton has been as follows :

199,403 The exports of cotton have been 844,000 bales more than last year, giving a value of $10,000,000 in excess of last year.

Although the imports for the fiscal year ending June 30, show a larger amount than ever before, yet towards the close of the year there has been a diminished activity. For the six months since January, the decline was, as compared with last year, $12,000,000, and for the month of June, being the last of the year, $5,000,000, entered for consumption. The entries for warehouse under the diminished receipts were less than last year. The receipts for June are as follows:

The quantity of goods entered for consumption, although very large as compared with 1857 and 1858, yet they are less than for 1856. The quantity entered for warehouse does not much exceed the withdrawals. The business for the six months shows a considerable accumulation in warehouse, as large as for the same period last year, although the aggregate arrivals are much less. The quantity put on the market is less than last year, but there has been a comparative diminution in the stock in bood. The movement has been as follows :FOREIGN IMPORTS AT NEW YORK FOR SIX MONTHS, FROM JANUARY 1st.

The imports of the whole fiscal year show an excess even over the high figures of 1857, and the average of the two years now closed is also higher than for that year:

If we separate the aggregate dry goods imports from the general merchandise, we find that the increase in the importations is almost altogether in dry goods, since the supply of the other kinds is less than for last year, and much less than for 1857:-DESCRIPTION OF IMPORTS FOR THE YEAR ENDING JUNE 30.
