Mexican Dollars remain at 59d. per oz., but as the demand is principally for refining purposes, this price not firm. The Bavaria has brought 17,000£ Mexican, and the Zeta about £20,000 of Chilian und Bolivian dollars. The St. Laurent has also arrived at Brest, mit £67,000 from New York; the portion on English Account is not yet known.

Gold: Shipments of gold on a considerable scale have commenced from New York, and seem probably to continue for some time; the amounts hitherto received, detailed below, have been taken for export, but enquiries not very numerous, the continental exchanges having lately risen to a degree that somewhat diminishes the demand.

Silver: Quiet Market. No change in rate. The Ripon has taken £6,130 to Shanghai, but the operation is quite exceptional. Demand for bar silver chiefly for the Continent, price has a drooping tendency.

Mexican Dollars. Ripon has taken £24,590 to Hong Kong on Gvt. Account; but demand for China is not general, and this description of coin taken chiefly for refining purposes. The dollars ex Panama have been sold at 4s. 107/8d. p. oz., same rate as last Week.
