Money Mars at. CITY, AUGUST 22.-The transactions to-day in the mar- kets for public securities are upon a very limited scale, and prices generally are quoted the same as yesterday. The dis- count market is quiet to-day, with a large amount of money seeking employment, and few bills offering. There is, con- sequently, more disposition on the part of discounters to effect transactions of 31, per cent., and should the present favourable weather last during the next week or two, it is prsbable that the best short-dated paper will be ta.kem. at even a fraction less. The rate for short Joans in the Stock Exchange is 2 to 2| per cant.-Consols are now quoted 89% to f for money, and 89 £ to f for the account (Sep- tember 7).
