LATEST COMMERCIAL AND MARKET I INTELLIGENCE. MONEY MARKET.—FRIDAY. The easier tendency of the value of money, since the publication of the Bank return is gradually strengthening the Home Funds, which are about 1-16 better than at yesterday's close. In other respects there is little to no- tice in Stock Markets. The demand for discount is quiet, the medium rate .for shorttime bills being nearer 2| than 27 The increase of a little over a million in the public de- posits, as shown in the Bank return, and the decrease of about the same amount rn the other deposits, as regards effect, cancel each other. The repayment of loans has caused a decrease of tl20,732 in the other securities, and the result of the operations for the week ending Wednes- day was to leave tha total reserve stronger by £ 78,632. The traffic receipts of the Grand Trunk Railway of Canada for the week ending February 17 show an increase of 22,200. The receipt of a telegram in the Stock Markets from New York stating that the American Government refuses to withdraw upon the question of the Alabama indirect claims, and that they are affirmed, caused a sudden fall in all securities shortly after midday, not, however, to a serious extent. Consols are fully lower, and the decline in other respects ranges between £ and -J per cent. The excitement at first was considerable, but it has greatly subsided. LONDON CORN MARKET.—FRIDAY. The Corn Exchange to-day was thinly attended by millers, and the business actually transacted was insigni- ficant, in consequence of the wet weather. The supply of English wheat was short, and the condition indifferent, while from abroad the arrivals were only moderate. Trade was quiet, and on the whole the tendency of prices was unfavourable. BARLEY.—Malting barley was rather easier to purchase, but grinding parcels maintained their value MALT was dull, but not quotably lower. OATS.—There was good supply of oats, which changed hands slowly at about previous quotations. MAIZE experienced a limited inquiry on former terms. BEANS and PEAS were inactive and in some instances slightly cheaper. FLOUR.—The flour trade was quiet, but prices were without appreciable alteration.
