Financial and Commercial.

Tuesday, July 28th, 1863.
Specie and Bank Notes.--The rates for specie are irregular and the brokers all report "nothing doing." They are generally bidding $9 premium for gold and $8 for silver, but have very few offers holders capturing to . The amount of bank notes in the market is also very ligated, and within the past few days prices have gone up amazingly. Some of the brokers to-day were offering 200 per cent premium, or three for one, and at one place 250 was the bid.--The selling rate may be quoted at 225, 275 .

Bonds and Stocks.--The last auction sales indicate the prevailing rates, viz: Confederate bonds, 8's, registered, 163d ult! interest payable May and November, 105 interest payable January and July, 102, 107½, latter for 1879.

Two more auction sales are advertised in this paper to take place this week.
