Money has been rather in demand dorina the early part of the week, but

became more plentiful yesterday afternoon, in cousequence of the appearance of the usual quarterly notice by the Bank of England. It was believed that the Bank Loans would have been confine,t entirely to bills of exchange; but the terms of the notice admitting of the deposit of Exchequer Bills and. India Bonds as securities for advalleca, it trill be seen that the facilities offered on this occasion Mr as extensive ad they have ever been. Tile following is a copy of the paper iu question-

" Bank of England, 3,1 September 1840. "The G .vernor awl Company of the Itank England are ready 11,1111 further notice. to revels e 01.010111011S fur loans upon the dep,it er pr,,' ,•1 bills of exchange, not having more than six an,n1lis to : Bills :1;1,1 East India Bonds; such

There has noh been much doing in the English Funds, and till yesterday the price had fluctuated between 90 and 90.1. An impulse was then given to the market, by the purchases of several brokers who are known to act for foreign speculators : there were consequently buyers for Account at 90% at the close of husiliess yesterday, with every el.pe:-..anee of a further improvement. It was generaliy surmised from the purehasys just noticed, that a considerable itnprovement had taken place in the French Funds on Wednesday ; but when the prices given in the newspapers of this learning only showed an advance of a per emu., the appearance of our market completely changed. The opening price tra, 994 for Aecount, and S911, tar Money. A rumour has prevailed of a revolutionary Inurement having occurred in Brussels; and as several sales of Stock have been made, the price has declined per cent., and closes at S9i 8 for Money, and 89.; 90 for Account. We have little doubt that the revolutionary movement will turin out to be an exaggeration of some popular tumult on the occasion of the Ctes in honour of the anniversary of the Belgian Revolution ; but the decline in the Belgian Stock, nuf -ed. hereafter, has its origin in a fall of 3 per cent, in the price of Stuck in the Rome market. It will be seen from our quotetians that the difference between the ',rice of Consols for Money anti that for the Account has decreased, and I;: 'teal of being, as it was last week, 1 per cent , is now only this Les arisen entirely from the greater plenty of money, and not from any extemdre money Purchases; the business having, as we have before olrerved, been very limited. The premium upon Exchequer Bills has flom the same Cause experienced a momentary improvement to-day ; and small bills, which usually sell higher than those of 1,0o0/. and 5001., have been done at 204. prem. A sale by the broker who acts for tine Scotch Banks has depressed these securities re Ain ; nod the large bills have been done at lGs. Bank Stock lies been at 169 and I 69lj for Money ; rind one bargain has occurred. at 170 for the October Account. India Stock has been steady at 249 and 2491-. The books of the various Soieks, the dividends upon whielt become due in October neat, have all closed ia the course of the present week. We subjoin a list of the 11;1:,'S upon whIelt caelt Stoat, clescd, and times upon which busi- ness will rse,eomence.

An interview has been appointed for to.day la:tween the Committee of Spa-

nish Bondholders and the Count 00 LARA, an agent of the Government at Madrid : it is stated that the Count is the lkarer of some proposition for the arrangement of the elaitns of the Bondholdere ; but, tie We have not beets informed of its nature front any authentic source, we fordear to give the many versions of it that are afloat. We fear, however, that it is coupled with an immediate zulvauce of money to the Government, in some shape or other; and curse ptently is not of a very advantageous character.
