THE MONEY MARKET.
STOCK EXCHANGE, FRIDAY EVENING.—ADOther week of inactivity has passed in our Consol Market. The business done has been comparatively trifling, and the variations in price have not exceeded a quarter per cent. The opening price on Monday was 921 to 1; on Tuesday it fell to 92n and, after touching 921 this morning, is now 921 to 1. The new account for July is open, and the continuation demanded is 1 to 7-16: which gives an iuterest of about 21 per cent. for money, low enough certainly, but yet consider- ably higher than could have been obtained a short time ago. The New Four per Cents. have been steady at from 1011 to it ; Exchequer Bills at 78 to 80 ; and India Bonds 80 to 82. Upon the whole, we have to remark that the op - portunities of employing money to advantage are still so few and limited, that capitalists, however disposed to consider present prices too high for safe investment, have yet no other choice ; and under these circumstances, a fur- ther rise in prices would probably have occurred, but for the illness of the King alone. In the Foreign Market there has been considerable business this week; and some of the South American Bonds, particularly Mexican, are higher, viz. 391. Brazil Stock is lower, viz. 731; but very little business has been done in it. Russian and Danish are also slightly depressed ; but the business has been trifling, and indeed the chief transactions of the week have been con- fined to Greek and Spanish Bonds. Of these, Greek have fluctuated between 46 and 481 this week; and Spanish between 161 and 19i. The Greek Market is very susceptible of change, and a single buyer or seller frequently alters
the price either way ; even where the amount dealt in has not been large. The Spanish Market, on the contrary, is much more steady ; but early in the week, the nerves of the buyers were very rudely shaken by the state of affairs in Paris, where a great fall had occurred. Prices have since recovered there, and a corresponding rise has followed here, with a very firm Market. In the Share Market, there is not much doing. The Imperial Brazilian As- sociation has declared another dividend of 31. 10s. on those shares on which 201. capital only has been paid ; but the dealings during the week have been chiefly in other shares of less certain character.
SATURDAY, HALF-PAST TWELVE.---Notwithstanding the gloomy reports of the King's health, all is quiet here—prices of Consols are a shade higher than yesterday, being 921 to 1, but there is scarcely a bargain doing in either house.
