Woodsy Kveninf. ' There is do ehartx - . In th eooditlon ot the Newer Markr, which raneins Inactive, Mid rather re in tendency. A further trifling decline ha recurred in the chirps for loan for the day mod in th quotation for tbe disoorat of thro month' fcenk rrcr. For several lava the import of cold nave exewdod th experts of the metal, And so m that condition of thing ontrnuce the nine of montr will reobfthlr ctre way little br little under the influence of the incroMing com w ution lor bills. There Is a very ample margin Mtwi the rate at which money can be bor - rewvd and that at which bill can be obtained. TV risk of letting Abe bill rate down it growing lee ad losa, in aopearanoe at any rate, aa the eeaeon advance, ana the mere fear that adrereo forcicn rtcSmnp may raddenly lead to shipments of bnl - iioa i never onoofh to stop a decline in the dls - r ,;';t rate except when the llank a reaerro is very ; a . indMKi. or at ume wnen money U scarce.

The future course of events In the Eat ia sUll recarded with considerable apprehension, although there waa a report that Germany had made proposals with a view to mottling the Bulgarian question, which had been approved by the other Powers. The wraknesa here was, of course, increased br the continued depression on the Paris Bourse. "The Fund closed a shade above Saturday closing rcieos, in spite of the gloomy aspect of politic. The market for Home Government Securities opened without change from Saturday's quotations, but the tone beoame rather farmer just before the clnee. Consols leaving off at 100$ 100. both for money, and tho November account, a rise of p. ev 'and Beduced Three per Cents, also rose I t W's 4, but New Two - and - - Half per Cents, were a shade easier at &$. Colonial Government Securities were rather dull in tho raoroinp but closed practically at Saturday's prices, ekorrt the Scrip ot the recently issued J ew South Wales llree - and - a - Iialf per Cent, stock, which was firmer at premium. Indian Guar&ntoea Railway stocks were unchanged. The "Homo Railway Market has been steady, with scarcely any business doing. Brighton Deferral stock opened dull at' Vrtt, bat recovered subsequently, owing to tho trafio return being less unfavourable than had been expected, and it closed at 97, a rise of i since Saturday. South - Eastern' Deferrvd rose closing at DC J, after "baring touched 91. The Scotch stocks were also a shade harder at the close, at an advance of about I each, but the ' heaw stocks were scarcely altered. London and forth - Western closed at 162J, and Scrth - Eastem at 152, the latter being lower than on Saturday. The tratfic receipts of tho undermentioned railways for the past week show the following changes when compared with those for tho corresponding period of last year s lucre. South - Eastern, C3H. Decrease. London and Brighton, CLSM. The Canadian Bailway Market opened firmer for Grand Trunk securities, in sympathy with the advance shown in the American department. Operators showed but little inclination to enter into fresh transactions in view of tho Settlement commencing to - morrow, and tho tone remained steady ail day .with but few fluctuations. Finally ,the First reference and Four per Cent. Guaranteed stocks wore about J higher than on Saturday, while the Second Preference fell about t. Canadian Pacific shares were again father inquired for, and closed J higher. . The American Railroad Market has been well supported to - day by purchases both on home and New York account. The solo exception to tho general rise is Philadelphia and Beading " common wi.ich has further rereded j to "J, on an official cableram,irhich we give below, referring to tho pro - cautionary steps taken by thobondholders to provide for the event of a foreclosure being found unavoidable. For the same reason tho General Mortgage bonds have advanced 2J, to 76. The market for Er.e shares, which was so active on Saturday, has been, comparatively quiet, and their price Only rose J to IP". Tho Second Mortgage bonds have ri - a to 77f. Apart from these, the buoyancy was general. There . has been a strong; arbitrage demand for Union Pacific shares at an advance ri 1J. to ZA. Louisville and Nahville shares and Lake Shore advanced 1 each, to 45J and 79J ectively, and there was a rise of about in C uicagoIilwaulceo, and St. Paul shares to 83J. At the meeting cf tho Denver and Bio Grando anare - hrlders to - dy, a report of which will be found elsewhere; the assessment of So per share in exchange for $12 Preferred Stock was confirmed without any opposition. After hours tho market generally continued firm, the ehief feature being the rise - in Wabash Preferred, which advanced to 1 j, and the General Mortgage bonds to 421 riw of each. Th Mexican Railway Company's stocks oponed anil, but closed rather firmer, the Ordinary at 211 1 the First Preference at 751, being a rise of J irt the latter case. Tho stocks of tho Anglo - Arn sican Telegraph Company were in some de - sand, the Preferred rising 1. Pie Foreign 3Iarket has been dull, on tho w?.' lie. for the reasons already mentioned. There was k - .me little inquiry for Egyptf an issues in the t irt.ing.owing to the news that Sir H. D.

It is evident that there is more than ono interest to conciliate before the movement can succeed t " London, Oct. 10. " Fir, If X T. Z.' wul pull together withMinring - Une flnns.we may yet stop the closing of banks at 1 o'clock on Saturdays. There is no doubt that,whsterer sympathy may bs felt - for bankers' clerks, ths oppwition to early closing is becoming very strong. AVe consider that - in times of general complaint of business lesring London it would be preposterous to drire It sway still more by converting the Saturday half holiday practical It into an entire one. A large number of brokers and merchants who now come to town from 11 to 3 o'clock would not come at all if banks closed at 1 o'clork.acd we are anit i.irn that our clients are not so much dependent upon London that wj wm noi cna n more conTrnieni to Buy elsewMere il London merchants will work five days a week only, "We hare now frequently .to return orders on Saturday afternoons and they are executed elsewhere. - In Net, many firms who, oat of good nature, hare not opposed the early dosing now admit that thev bare great doubts as to the wisdom of their decision. Ate hste good reason for believing that many of those who kept neutral will assist the movement now on foot In Mincing - lane for resisting the innovation. " We sre. Sir, your obedient servants, 44 MERCHANTS." The - leUawing proposal relates to the same subject : M London, Oct. 10. " Sir. In rcplv to the two ronrsnorxVnt wl In T.

As the onenins of the new docV at T!t.n. announced for the 1st of Januarv next, will increase. I.t distance, the risk of goods in trsiuit to the upper docks UN warciiwujn, QjeirutDH vaiTUMl mquuv now I Oil riHIC is provided for. lollries of Insarence contain a rlsose ' Including risk of craft to and from the ship,' but it has been contended that the liability of the underwriter ceases with the landing of the goods at the dock where, for the ship's convenience, the cargo is discharged, and that from thence the responsibility rets with tlio lightermen, who in turn repudiate it. Nor is their business one which could reason ably be saddled with a liability unlimited in extent. Abroad docks snd wharves hsre been treated as the ship, and fcr a given time the risk of conveying goods to their destination wlthla the port of discharge has been thus specially provided for.ami the introduction of such a clause in policies of insurance for the port of London would seem a desirable way of settling a question which should no longer be left in doubt. " 1 am, bir, your obedient servant.

Of course with the, advance in the price of the aharea, it had been more difficult for them to rednce the amount of the assessment. In fixing the assessment at $C, they had had to take into consideration tho necessity of not crippling the railway. A brief discussion followed, and in answer to questions the chairman sUtod that the preferred atock would bo behind all existing bonds. It would, however, form port of a large total, and would havo a market at Amiterdani, Nw lui.uuuiDuui. Ane resolution was tben put, and declared carried unanimously. .The Itta annual general meeting of the shareholders of tbeNKwLrwx. and Hrazilus Bahk (Limited) was me nuices, 1 oneuuoiuo. yara. air. John White Later, who presided, obscrvnl t h.r ll ,t,. ;,.. were, they wrre able to present a report which bore - gsrdcd as extremely good. In going through tbe accounts, he stated that the reserve fund of t223,0u0 showrj an in - creae cf 2J,000 cornnarcd with last year. Tbe profit was i..C00 againat 76,000. This reduction had arisen partly through the depression, which they bad had every - right to anticipate, but it had bocn caused mainly by what they could not have foreseen namol v. bases l. i..r.:.. dishonestly. Fart of the business of the bank was to clro lartiitics to tnoao icreiving eooda sroins: to Iir,il When tbe eoola arrivsd thev wern t.T..I n ,1,. Government warehouses, anl tho eonsignees askel the bank to give tbera bills of ladins? for the mifi.ol entering there. The bank exacted trutt receipts by which the consignees rendered themselves liable to holt tho goods for the account of tho bank, ami to pay thera the money if tho goods were sold. - He was sorry to say that that had been deviated from a circumatance which unfortunately had compelled thim to give more restrictive oiders than might perhaps bo well for tho interests of tho liank. As to the trust receipts, that was a matter which called for the attention of the merchants ami tha Uovernnient of the merchants more especially in the principal towns of llraiil. Merchants in this country on tbe arrivsl of their goods could obtain warrants against them on which money ronkl be borrowed, but the llraxilian merchants did not possesa u.,iwiu,j, uunuiuuiw vniTrnunrni wouia arrange to give tbe merchants warrants.Duttinir a atamn nn t ru It would facilitate tbe working of the merchant and would etmUe the banks to make advances, thus benefiting them, lleverting to the accounts ho said that, with the amount brought forward, they had an available balance of 78,420, of which 12,600 had been absorbed by the interim dividend. They now proposed a dividend of lis. a share.making 8 per cent, on the paid - up capital, aad s bonus of 2 per cent., to tr&nafer 1'.,000 to tbe reserve fund, and to carry forward - 13,420. The reserve fund must be regarded as absolutely 11 no - unary to guard against certain loss unless tho liraxilians returned to "prepayment, and tho Government arranged that there should be no more deficita in their yearly estimatea. If tbe Brazilian Government would simply do what other countries in a similar financial position had done notably, the United States and make the import duties payable In gold, thereby enabling them to reduce 1 no inoonvertloio paper tasue.tney would bo able to resume specie paymenta much sooner than was now thought poaaiDie. tie male tnese remarks because, as a practical man, he saw the danger of a country meeting its liabilities by a paper issue. Tbe reserve fund of the benk.whichwouM now amount to 240,000, was In England, and they had nald the nenaltv for oettlnf it home, ltut tnr th fn in Setting their money home, they would be paying a divl - end of 12 or 13 per cent.
