, 1865. At this period of the year there is never a great deal doing in the most flourishing commercial times. It cannot be expected that we could have anything but a very dull market now. The suspension of transportation for the holidays cuts off supplies temporaries, and the trade is merely local. The gold market shows a slight appreciation in greenbacks. In New York, gold stands at $4.45 ½. Here the buying price to-day is $1.44½; selling, $1.45½. The policy recommended by Mr. McCulloch, Secretary of the Treasury, and concurred in by the Congress, for reducing the circulation of Government paper, has probably had its effect. Yet the resolution of Congress in pursuance of the ideas of the Secretary, touching a resumption of specie payments, shows that body not to be in a hurry.

Upon authority competent to conclude such a question, we announce that the published statements to the effect that a loan of one hundred millions was, upon the occasion of his recent visit to New York, tendered to Mr. Secretary McCulloch by the National Banks, are a sheer fabrication. The Treasury has not at present any need of a loan, and should such become necessary, it would not be accepted from the banks, but would be solicited, and, doubtless without trouble, immediately obtained from the people.--National Intelligencer, Reported Interview between the President and Mr. Wilson.

The rumor that General Frank Blair will soon succeed Mr. Stanton is untrue. Mr. Stanton will not leave the War Department for the present. General Grant purchased and paid for his dwelling-house in Washington last month, for which he gave thirty thousand dollars. The statement that it was given him is untrue. Secretary McCulloch is not disposed to accept the offer of the banks of a temporary loan of one hundred million of dollars, and will probably adopt the usual mode of getting funds. Mr. Hooper, of the Ways and Means Committee, is in confidence with the Secretary in regard to the matter. Governor Sharkey, of Mississippi, has just arrived here. He reports favorably respecting the condition of affairs throughout the South. Unless the test oath is repealed, not more than four of the Southern represent

There was not a large attendance of visitors at the White House to-day, and none of these were granted an interview with the President until afternoon, his time being occupied with Secretary McCulloch, Secretary Stanton, and General Grant, who came in about 12 o'clock. Some of the President's letters. To-day the President received among his letters a number from insane persons. One letter is from an individual in New York, whoormer has been cited to appear upon the oath of the latter to answer for assault and battery, and Mr. Maguire has given bail to answer for assaulting Mr. Dunbar and stabbing him with a sword-cane. Importation of cattle prohibited. Secretary McCulloch has promulgated a circular, under the late act of Congress, prohibiting the importation of cattle, not only of the bovine genus, but also sheep, goats, horses, mules, asses and swine, is prohibited entirely.
