STOCKEXCHANGE, SATURDAY MORNING.—The news from Paris on Monday, of a change of Ministers and a considerable fall in the French Funds, caused a considerable sensation in our Consol market, which opened at 884, being per cent. below the closing price of Saturday. In the afternoon, however, the alarm subsided, and Consols advanced to 881. At this price it remained, with scarcely any fluctuation, until yesterday morning ; when, upon some heavy sales, the market again gave way, and the price rapidly fell to 884, and closed at only a share higher.

This morning, the opening price is 881 to The heavy stocks have not fallen in the same ratio ; and Exchequer Bills are at 13s. which is very little below the highest price. The weather still occasions some apprehensions; and the failure of a considerable house at Manchester led yesterday to some sales, but these were purely speculative.

In the Foreign Market, there has been much bustle yesterday and to-day, but not much business. It consisted chiefly in what is elegantly phrased " bang- ing the market,"—that is to say, offering to sell stock at lower prices when it is tolerably well known beforehand that there are no purchasers. The effect, however, has been a fall in the price of almost every description of Foreign Stock. Russian Bonds are now log to 101, after having been 1021 on Wed- nesday last ; Danish is also lower. Brazil are at 58; Portuguese 44. Spanish 81 ; but there has been no considerable dealings in them. The other Bonds and Shares are without variation.

HALF-PAST TWELVE.—A11 is confusion here ; Consols have fallen to 873, and have been done even lower in some instances.—In the Foreign Market Russian has been done at 99k, Brazil at 57, and Danish at 67; but no consi- derable sales could be effected at these prices.—In the English Market every- body is selling, but nobody seems to know upon what ground.
