There has been a very active demand for American securities

during the week, and prices have experienced a considerable im- provement. The importation from New York has been large, and large purchases have been made on Ditch and German account. The principal advance is in Atlantic and Great Western Deben- tures, which rose yesterday from 61 to 6$. A few days since the price was only 49 to 50. 73,0001. in bullion has been taken from the Bank for shipment to New York to pay for these bonds, the total awn to be remitted being, so far as is at present known, 250,0001.
