¡ The Money Market. CITY, MAY 7.—The dealings in public securities to-day are to a fair extent, and the tone of the various departments is rather firm. Not-withstanding the redaction yesterday in the Fiench funils, there is an increased belief that the Conference will arrive at a satisfactory solution of the Lnxembure question. The quiet manner in which the Reform demonstration passed off yesterday, combined with the fine weather and the consequent drooping tendency of tne corn market, has also induced some transactions for a rle. The discount market is rather quiet to-day. but the rates for choiea bills are not below the Bank minimum. Short advices on English Government securities are obtainable at tae Stock Exchange at 2 to 2 per cent. e, Bsol" are now quoted 91 to i for money and next Thurs- day s settlement, and 9lt to I for the 6th of June. The Three per Cents. Reduced and New Three per Cents, are steady, at 891 to §. The railway market la firmer to-day, and prices have improved.
