Money and stocks — the produce Market.

Since our last report there has been no important change in the price of stocks. We note sales of Confederate bonds, 100,000,000 loan, at par, and of the 15.000,000 loan at 101 and interest. Virginia 6 per cents 100, flat, and North Carolina 8's 108 and interest. The brokers are buying gold at 100 to 110 premium, and selling at 125 silver, buying price, 80, selling, 100.

Owing to the plentiful supplies of country produce, and perhaps some competition among those who traffic in this description of ‘"merchandize,"’ prices have become more moderate, and the prospect of a further reduction is favorable. We quote butter at 60@65 cent per pound; country soap, 65 cents, Irish potatoes, $3 per bushel; good apples $2.50 @$3; tomatoes, $3; onions, $5; bacon, hog round, 45 cents per pound.

In the grain markets there is little doing that need be noticed, the prices of corn and oats having been fixed by the Government, and none can be sold at other quotations. We quote superfine flour at $10 50@$10 75, extra at $11 50@$11 75, and family at $13.
