Tslls BANK OF EN5rL iND IN 1)AN(Tn, 44lo11e
of the Liontdon fliitnuial journals have taken
up the cue given by Ilagehot in his Lomlnarl
St reot, and are calling public attl.ntnioll to the
dangerolis condition of the reserves of the
alanst of England. The London World and
the London Statist are especially noticeable,
for t heir plain talk i about the matter. The
Should there Ib frl'ol any c('als(', a it ) sln
demand for money hr the conltinent or the I
rovincsti thlle is an instant drain upon the
ill brokers and tbanker's of the nmetropolis,
who in turn fall back upon the Bank of Ing
land; andi illn n enmers'gelncy, such as might t o
caused by a war with Russia the bank act
would have to be susRpended, and there,
w'ould be heavy risk of the whole delical4tely
interwoven network of credit collapsing
like a house' of 'cards. Things are' not as
they were in 1797, when the bank was more
isolated than it is now, or even as they were
in 1847, 1857 andt 18si, at each of which
dates the bank act ha I to be suspended. At
these several periods what are called "trans- F
for credits" by telegraphic wire and trans- i
Atlantic cable were unknown. It is obvious
that the suddenness with which demands for
,cash can now be made does not leave the
time there was formerly to organize means
of meeting sudden satrains upon our system
of credit. No doubt the telegraph facilitates
readi action on the part of the bankers in
;self-de fense as well; but in a ease in which
time is absolutely nls'essarV to stave off dan
ger. it vastly adds to the difficulty of pulling
through. The Bank of England has virtually
cesased toa e the peopl5's bank; and while )
there is see.minng safety in its rediscounting
the paper of the hill brokers, credit com J
Inanies and joint stock banks, there is J
actual dangiler. At one time the bank refused
even to allow the London and Westminnster
Rank a d.rawing accoiunt. There ought to be
entire dishwlation of tho Old Lady from the
other banks, else all may go down ibgt hier.
Until there Is the Bank of England caninot
Lbecome hbetter than it is at present, or shbiw
itself mnl,'r wort hy of its quasi-national posi
lion and privileges. It has lost its old con
trol over 1 he monelo\"y ,lmarket., and yet haits to
boar all the burdenis that are involved in its
position as thil cslntre of our banking sys
loin. The tconlseqncllen is'y that week by week
the reserv'e is dwindling away, and vet the
bIank directors are aifrid to put up1 the rate
to protct it, Is',li5nse the outaiSil market
wouldt not follow them. and they mnight lose
Ce\en !,,10 small discount business they have.

GENERAL REMARKS.-This has been a
bright, hot day. General business continues
The movement in Cotton showed an improve

vices from other leading markets, and the sales
footed up 2700 bales. Though the sales for the
week show a large falling off, prices have ad
vanced since last Friday %c on the low grades
and '.c on the high grades.
I)uring this week the receipts of Flour have
fallen off 617 bbls as compared with last week
5617 against 9233. With but one exception-so6
bbls yesterday for export-the sales have been
confined to the local trade, at prices showing a
decline of 12%@25c on the barrel. The supply
of Flour continues to be light.
The supply of Corn Meal has been insuffielent
to meet the demand, which has been active dur

West have exhibited more steadiness in Pork.
though as yet there is no marked improvement
in this market observable. Holders and buyers
are at variance in regard to prices, and sales
are confined to small lots to meet orders.
Since last Friday Bacon shoulders have de

ctined ',(c'b ' It, the market oloslog quiet and I
easy, with a limited jobbing demand.
Hams are the only article of Hog products
which show an improvement over prices last I
week. This is owing to the somewhat active I
demand and the limited supply. The advance
in the better qualities of Hams amounts to 'i
During the week Dry Salt Shoulders have
shown a decline of ',c, and :tow rule vulet and

favorable to-day, which no doubt stimulateda
the demand and led to the somowhat more li.

In a review of the week it Is apparent that
trade has been less active than last week. 'rhls
is shown by the sales whiclh for the week are
7eTs bales less. Prices, however, have rIellt

Friday's flgures, an advance hans bIn estab

active. and the sales of the week show a foott.imt
of :1:12,700 bales at prices varying considorahbly
from easy to strong. and that nmarket elosing

DR. BILLE has returned from Paris and
opened an office at 196 Canal street, between

twenty years of age. By Dr. Bille's treatment
which is pleasant, even enjoyable, ladies can do
away with all cosmetics and paints, as the skin
becomes soft and white, the eyes regain their
wonted lustre and strength, and vivacity re
