The New York Journal of Commerce, of Thursday afternoon, says.

‘ There is no change in the money market noticeable in the street at the note-brokers. It is almost impossible to negotiate business paper; the best signatures will not sell outside of the banks below 15 and 18 per cent. per annum while very little can be sold at these or even still higher figures. Foreign Exchange does not move any more freely, and the bankers who advanced the rates on the first announcement of the Europe, would now sell at the former quotations if they could find buyers. We quota; Bills at 60 days on London 95@18 for documentary; 98 @102 for fair to first class commercial signatures; and 102 ½@103 ½ for bankers, although there is little demand at anything near the outside rates. The Stock market opened this morning at lower figures, and there was an evident anxiety to realize on the part, of holders. After the first adjournment there was a little more firmness in the street.
