Bates of discount were not quoted below Bank rate to-day, and although bills are said to have been taken at 2 percent., the transactions must have 'been exceptional, tot the leading discount houses have done nothing at less than 8 per cent. Short loans have been in demand at 2i to 3 per cent., but payments on the Stock Exchange being mostly made to-day, the inquiry is felt 'to be passing.

Only one failure was announced in the Stock iix-ch-,-,- but it i believed that a great many small dealers who bad lately made profits have buen losing. As some proof of the poorer condition ot members, we note a difficulty amongst borrowers in Ending a " margin,' which means that they bought stock without, being aide to !:1v for it except by pledging it against adVave-i This difficulty has led to sales, and coos a sreat wav to account for the depression of wrices yesterday. To dealers and orosors ..1 iU COOU. creait money u c,.. tor the account : n. w shy have the banSs Decoaie ox borrowers that even against United States bonds as. much as six per cent, has been ex-oe'ed. Apart from Consols, which have been somewhat weak, owing to a slight but unexpected charge for carrying over purchases at the settleme nt which ends on Sioaday, the acula'ive markets huve shown a tendency to rec-OTCT from the exaggerated depression twentv-fotir hours previously, and the tone is :u-c:"aiiv tirm st the close. Accounts for the Jail, which wore hastily opened yesterday, have been htwtilv closed this afternoon, leiegraph sH-urities ha?o recovered with the rest to some extent because of Mr. Pender's remarks at xhe ii.ee: ing oi the Direct Cable Company. Foreign railway and banking securities are flat in contrast with ft general rue for the any in the home markets. , The secretary of the Stock Exchange Committee informs us that Mr. Frederick N. Goiding was declared a defaulter upon the Stock Es-eaaiige this day. , So severe has been the pinch tor money at iha s-ttlement now completed a pinch for which we have been continually endeavouring for the wt ten days to prepare our readers tht means for preventing rcicurrence of the pressure are talked of. A weekly contemporary suggests u aome such plan as the settling of foreign securities in alternate weeks, ami of home securities in the intervening weeks " as a suitable remedy. "We also hear it put forward that dealings for future settlement niightbe discontinued, accounts being settled daily, as iu New York ; -;:id on the other hand that dealings for settlement a month or two forward should be recognised by the committee of Stock Exchange. At present none are recognised if for settlement beyond the next account. We are inclined to favour complete freedom of contract, whviher in the stock itarkets or elsewhere.

The prices received from Berlin are Hat, andliussian stocks hae on the whole not recovered.

Inne Noiah Walter, SO, was brought np on remtd charged with being au accessory after too lace to thTfirst-ntmed charge.-Mr. "K?i$ the prosecution on behalf ol the Bank oi Batons authirito. Mr. Bretap Osborpe, souqitor, appeared for the Post Office.-The evidence taken on the previous occasions having been read over, and tto depositions signed by the variouB witaetass, Mr. Foland said there wos anothr case which the Indon Joint Stock Bank ws desirous of laying. before the : Court, and he vros of opiuiou that it was desirable thatit should begousintp.-The Alderman,iuterposmg, astedtf there was any further evidence against the nonian, and if Bhe were implicated in that fresh charge ?-Mr. Poland replied in the negative, and the woman was removed rroua the dook into the cells. Mr. Poland then said the prose-cator in this cose was Mr. Georgo Leech, a provision merchant, carrying ou business at bio. 196, Old-street, St. Duke's, who kept an uocouBt at the Dondon a oant-Stock Bank. On the evening of the 23rd of December a man who was identined ua the prisoner entered his shop and purchased a German sausage, tho price of which yrss as., which he paid, arid en fmtered into canversariOE with Mr. Leach. Pe said he was dasirpus of sending some money, maptionmg the amount oi 1. 9b. tid.,into tho country for the purpose 1 of paying a doctor's bill, but he was unable to get a Fost-oftice order, and he asked Mr. Leech if he could oblige him with a cheque. This Mr. Leech eventually agreed to do, making out a cheque fpr that amount m the name of the parson to whom the prisoner said he wished to send the money, and which was crossed. The pnsoner thanked Mr. Leech, and loft with the cheque. The nsxt day, however, that cheque was prassuted over the counter in the ordinary way, but it had been alterea to a cheque for 90. 10, and it was duly pajd, Mr. Leech, as soon as he obtained his pass-book, communicated with the tank, but they were unable to bring the perpetrator of the fraud to justice. When the prisoner was taken into custody, amongst other things found at his lodgings were tracings f the cheque in question, ia its origmal state, and also of the cheque in its altered state.-Mr. Poland remarked that, perhaps, if publicity were given to this case, it would serve to warn people from giving their cheques in this manner, when they knew that there were snot olever persons about, Thsre were, he Bsid, other cases against tho mala prisoner, but be should aak the Aldengn to coinu.it only op the charges of forgery and uttering cheques on i he Bank of England and Sir Samuel-Scott, Bart., and Company, Cavendish-squaie, and forging and uttering post-ofcee money orders. He then caJleol Mr. George Leech, who gave evidence corroborating the opening statement. He identified the prisoner as the man who obtained the ohequs from liim, and stated that (he prisoner represented to hun that he b&l been recommended by one of his customers, and also that he himself would have large dealings with him, and took away a price list of his goods. William Wallace, an employe of Mr. Leech, gave evidence identifying the prisoner. My. J. W. Trouason, cashier at the London Joint Stock Bank, proved cashing the cheque in question on December 24, and gave particulars of how ha paid it, anS said ha believed the prisoner to be the person who presented ia chequss. in crosa-sxamination by the prisoner, witness said he had conversation with the person who presented the cheque, and ha believed he recognised his (prisoner's) voice. He hacl very little doubt about the person, but though he would not swear, he fait convinced that the prisoner was the man. Decteohve-sei-geaut Child, City Police, said that after the prisoner had been arrested, he found tho two tracings produced at the Todgices in Bichmoud-road, Barasbury. In reply to the prisoner, the officer said that the hag he found the tracings in was locked, and he did not find a key either iu his (prisousr's) or his wife's pe8esion that would open it. This completed the case, and the woman Ann Norah Walter was again placed m the dock. Mr. Poland then iotini&ted that iu regard .to the female prisoner, Ann Norah Walter, the Bank of England authorities did not think it necessary that she should be detained any longer in custody. It was thought advisable that inquiries shenid be madato see if aba had taken any active part in the passing off of any of the forged cheques, but with regard to that they had no definite evidoiise. Then, with reference to the Btstcmcnt that they were married in the United States of America, thoy had no means of aMMtaininR if that wore true or not, hut they had been living together as man and wife in lodgings paid for by the male prisoner. TJuditr these circumstances they did not ask lor her cqmmittal, hut ha should ask that William Henry Walter should he oommitted far trial on the Bank oi England and the other cases in which evidence had been given. Sir Thomas Gabriel then directed that the woman should ba discharged from custody, which waadoue, and she lef t ths court. The prisoner Walter was then formally charged by Mr. Gresham, the Chief Clerk, with forging and uttering ft cheque for 905., with intent to defraud the Governor and Com pany of tho Bank of England, with forging and nttsr-uig a cheque for 210. on Sir Samuel Scott, Bart., and Company, bankers, of Cavendish-square, with intent todeiraad, aud with forging aud ttoing sevwal Post-office money orders, with intent to defraud,-The prisoner then handed iu a written Bttemept, which was read and algced by him, in whioh he pleaded guilty to all the abofe charges. Sir Thomas Gabriel thea committed him for trial, hut remanded, him till tMrlatr fm- tho Knmnletinii of the denositionSa He also granted a request of the prisoner that ha WgM be allowed an interview with his wife, nd ordered that some clothing should be given up to hor by the police. The prisoner thanked the Aldaman, and -was ramovod. JiAW NOTIOES.-.THIS Da, JUDICIAL (MKTlTEl 03 THE PBJ.VT COUNCIL, WHITEHALL. At 101, Appeal: Bam Krishna Dss Sur-rowii v.

Yes terday afternoon a private view was held at tha Crystal Palace of the seventeenth annual sxhibition at that popular place of entartainment of canaries and British aud foreign cage birdis. Tha arrangements have been made on a very liberal scale, and besides the numerous prizes offered in the usual way there were several medalB and cups to bo competed for, mostly by amateurs, given by Messrs.' Sleep, Mackloy Brothers, George Biliatt, Lr, W. TV Greene, and other sEriends of tha feathered tribe. Ths show is a large one, there being 1,473 entries, many being of a very high quality Qf the different varieties of canary alone there are over BOO specimens in the exhibition. Some of the classes are weak, ano.in oue cinss, --.online, aiuuuuh luucr, there wsb no entry ; but as a rule, both for numbers and breed, the show well sustains past successes. Tho admirer of the delicate little native of the Canary Island will doubtless tind much to interest him in such classes as those devoted to the clear yellow and clear buff Norwich arietteB ; the same not cayenne pepper fed ; the crested yellow and buff Norwich, Jhe mealy London fancy, the Belgian, the Yorkshire, tha cinnamon, the hzard, and the various kinds of snuiOi canaries. To tha general visitoir, however, tha talking birds will prove more amusing. To theBe we can safely recommend No. 1,093, a parrakeet, belonging to Mr, John Mayes, who has a most extensive ripfrto 'm of fuuuv speeches, and No. 1,180, belonging to Mr. Joseph 5room, a piping crow, who would appear from his utteraiicea to have auuuooutiollable and unrequited love for one " Maggie." The show will open to-day and remain open uii Thursday evening next. Extension of the District Line to Fcl-HAM. Tho new line from the West Brompton District Station to Fulham has been, after aome engineering difficulties, completed, and the stations are also finished. The line descends from the level of the West Brompton Station till it is lti feet below the West London Extension line, where it enters a tunnel, and passes beneath that line and the Stamford Bridge Buiining Ground. An open cutting extends irom thia point to the Waiham-green Station, which bos two platforms 300 feet in lenath.

Tha north cona has been ordered to he kept up in Districts Nos. 0, L, 2, 6, 7t and 9, and to ba hoisted on ail other coasts. Fbiday, 8 P.M. The weather to-day, after a temporary improvement, lasting for about twenty-four hours, is oiun-becoming very sola and unsettled over the United Kingdom, especially in tha north-western, northern, aad north-eastern tetricts. At eight a.m. to-day tho barometer had risen at all ova north-eastern stations and over Norway, and mattings varied from rather above 80.1ia. oil our south-westerly coasts, to about 29-i in, at the Norwegian stations. Nortt-westeriyjgajes and strong winds still held on the eastern shores of tho North Sea, but in our islands (be wind after falling light had backed to the westward again, and in most placesthe sky had cleared. Stomoway, however, reported a renewed tall of the barometer to have commenced, and this, with high pressure in the southwest and gradients already moderately steep was far from being a good omen. , AtO.45 p.m. the fall of the barometer had spread to sfl parts of Scotland, and in a smaller degree to the other districts of our islands also ; but in Norway and Denmark tho barome- 'luoyeJiiaR's observations show that the centre of a new depression is now off the north-west coast 01 Hcouana (were tha barometer is fulling rapidly), and is apparently travelling in a south-easterly direction. Tho wind has backed to south m tha Shetlands and east of Scotland, and to southwest in. the northern parts of England and Ireland, while it remains chiefly westerly on our southern coasts. Temperature has risen to 47 deg. at Btornoway and Atdrossea, 41 deg. to 44 deg. on our north-east and east coasts, and to 48 deg. or 60 de. in the south and west. Eain has set in on our north and north-west, coasts, and the eky has an unsettled appearance even at our most southern stations. It appears likely from these facts that as the centre of tha depression passes by our northern coasts the wind will rise to a strong gale from north-west in its rear first in the northern aad oorth-westem districts, and afterwards in toe other parts of our islands acoomtianicd by cold, rain, hail, or show showers. Warnings havs been issued to all coasts. Over France this morning cold north-westerly winds , and dry weather prevailed very generally, the wind being moderate infprpe in most pieces, but continuing to blow bard at Toulon ; temperature varied from 36 deg. in tho eastern to between 40 deg. and44te.mttewcsteroitepartmenta,anate was falling slowly. In, the Netherlands strong north-westerly breezes were accompam'ed by temperatures varying tomSi deg. to 42 deg., and snow was iAUing at the mouth of the Elbe. jlnDenniark and the west of Norway north-westerly gales prevailed, with fine weather in many places, snow in others, and temperaturu varying from 30 deg. to 36 degs. hkHm'S MAIL AMD BTEAMSEIP NEWS. 4 (Fboh Lloyd's, Feb. 27.)

A meeting, convened by tho Institute of Bankers, was held last evening iu the theatre of the London IrmUtutiop, j7i-sbury-circue, whon a paper was read by Mr. T. H. B. MaviBon, upon Bankruptcy Reform. Mr. W B. Denison, Mil?., presided. Ever siiice the year 1S25, Mr. Davison said lie question of bankruptcy had given rise to coustant and widely divergent legislation, yet every section of the marcantite community at pretest united in denouueing tho inefficiency ot cur system, which compared unfavourably with those of foreign nations. The principle causes of complaint autuust our bankruptcy laws were the undue, facilities for escape from tho" snrpcrvision of creditors ; tho absence of official investigation of a bankrupt's misconduct ; tha necessity for more stringent regulatioris as to bookkeeping ; and for the checking of fraudulent claims ; tha omission to assimilate the duties of trustees ill lipuidataona and trustees in bankruptcy proper; and finally, the absence of any proper qualification for public accountaute snd of any ulterior disqoahflcations for bankrupts in apeci-iied cases. It would be seen that these grievances called for prompt atiAmtioii, when it was remembered that the average amount of fan ores' during the past ten years, might ba roughly stated at twenty millions per annum. Mr. Davison proceeded to point out the manner in which these grievances might, in his opinion, be remedied, advcioatiiis(iongc4iaeTUiiiO-vations, that the discharge of a bankrupt should bs conditional upon a dividend of 10s. in the pound ; and. in concluding, he referred briefly to the GoTsmmeni BiH upon the subjact, and to that ot Mr. .Sampson Lloyd. Tho chairman, in the course of a short address, insisted upon tha necessity for the total abolition of the distiuctioa between Ijankrnptcy and liquidatioii, aud for tho registration cf Mtderaents, PajtoarshipJ also ought to bereglstere4,while he thought that no man should be allowed to so into business agaio who hsd failed to pay a dividend of say at least 10s. ia ia pound. Probably not one bawcruptoy in twenty wa an honest one. -A series of resolutions were next eub-nutted bylMr. John Smith, who denounced tha Bank ruptoy Act of 1869, and also the Attorney-General' a Bill, tho latter on tha ground that, practically, it Jef-ttie evils tiomplaiued of untouohed. A discussion fol-lowsd.ia which soveral accountants of eminence and other gentlemen took part, and eventually the meeting was adjourned to nest Friday. Mr. Hb-E5!
