Consols closed on Saturday evening precisely as they did that day sennight-831 4; Exchequer Bills closed 4s. to 6s. premium. The Funds remained without variation, and almost without demand, until Thursday, when an advance took place, which has been fully maintained to-day; they close at ; Exchequer Bills are at 6s. to 7$. pre- TfliUM. The only topic of the week has been the Belgian loan, which it appears has been concluded. 'The negotiations, says the Times, were conducted at Calais, where the capitalists who proposed bidding for it assembled, and where a lively competition, it is said, took place. The bidders were Mr. N. M. Rothschild, jointly with his brother, JameS Rothschild, of Paris, Mr. Moberly, and Mr. Ricardo; and a party of French capi- talists. The contract has been taken by Messrs. Rothschild ; it is understood to be for 2,000,000/. sterling, for which bonds are to be issued at 74 or 75 per cent., bearing in- terest at 5 per cent. The loan is to be divided into portions for circulation in the dif- ferent capitals where it is expected to obtain subscribers,-1,000,0001. in Paris; 800,0001. in London ; and 200,0001. in Brussels; the dividends on each portion being made payable on the spot, and in the currency of the place where issued." There was a failure an- nounced during the week, of a house connected with the Russian trade; but it had been anticipated, and did not excite much interest in consequence.
