The weekly return of the Bank of England was the
most extraordinary ever published. Although tho bank
had not availed itself of the privileges granted by the
suspension of tbe Bank Charter Aot, the figures In the

unprecedented amoont provee how enormous bas boen
the pressure for accommodation on tbe part of the

had previously declined to a comparatively low point,
has not been so much affooted by the monetary crisis a?
might have been expected. Notwithstanding the large
stook In this port, trade n the manufacturing districts

here, ?a weU as on the continent, are barely stocked
with tbe raw material. Upon tbe announcement of the
heavy failures In London, and advance of the bank rate
to 9 per cent on Friday, great uncertainty became evi
