The New York dry goods, trade.

There is a moderate business doing in domestic goods for many purposes, especially in woolens, but otherwise there is but little movement to advise. Many of the mills are working upon these goods, and there is now no scarcity of supplies. Cotton goods are held with increased firmness, owing to the small stock and rise in the price of material; there is still a demand for drills and duck for the army, but beyond this the market is generally quiet. In foreign goods there is some little activity in trimmings and goods suited for the summer wear and traveling purposes, but the volume is quite small. The short credit system is to be inaugurated on the 1st of July, but merchants do not seem desirous of availing themselves of the few days left to purchase under the old system; in fact, most of them are not in a position and credit to do so.--New York Express.
