To-morrow being. the 1st of May, will be kEexir;tHAttNrt; 'IrMiluyRdsttn3A.vr:tt.''TtlElea''Snat'olc.k Exchange; there hying obly one other day in the year, namely the lot of No- VtIliber, that is so sanctified. We know not whether there be any mysterious connexion between the brokers unit jobbers of Capel Court and the sooty fru- temity that indac,s them both to hold their revels cm the sarae day, Out lee are quite eertein that the fineness of the weather has rendered the determinis- t:am to enjoy to•morrow universal. Money has heen very abundant during the week ; awl there have been con- tinued investments in the English Funds, by which the market was nearly cleared of stock. A quantity was, however, thrown upon it yesterday morn- ing ; and this circumstance, in conjunction with the reported commencement of hostilities against the Government of Naples, caused a depression of per cent. in the price of all the current varieties of Stock; but the various markets speedily recovered, and are to-day at the same quotations as before the decline. Bank Stock has been as low as I74i, but has recovered, and is to-day again quoted at 175 and 1751. India Stock has been nearly 1 per cent. below the Lightest prices of last week, it having been marked at 2491; but is to-day again at 250i, Exchequer Bills have improved from 3s. to 4s., and are to-day as

bi”11 as Vs. prem. No official notice has been issued by the Bank on the subject of the new re-

niotioa with respect to unstamped powers of attorney ; it is however under. ;mph that all documents of this description will in future be subject to the 14 mantp. i9a fillhket f surprise to many persons that the price of the English Foods continue so. steady while money is so very abundant ; but prices are kept down by a persuasion that the Chancellor of the Exchequer will be compelled to make a ban, or to fund Exchequer The amount required is variously swell, some (tarrying it as high as 8 or 10 millions, and others to not above half that extent. All uncertainty upon this subject will coon he removed, as the lin-mei:II statement of the Chatmellur has been prorohed immediately after Easter, and cannot therefore be long delayed. The high price of the French Fund which have risen very materially lately, has given currency to the various deseriptions of Europiroi Stocks pay' hg ilhideilds; awl although, from th,hituilkul amount held it: Eitgland, theta!
