that all danger of the peace of Europe being distorbed on account of Belgian affairs is at an end. Hence the rise in the funds of which we have spoken.

In Foreign Securities, those of Europe have claimed the preference for investments; but busi. ness in them, on the whole, has been extremely limited. The South American Securities continue wholly neglected. Brazilian Bonds, which had long formed an exception to the general discredit in which the South American Stocks had fallen, have latterly begun to share their fate. The price of those bonds has greatly declined.

Money has been rather abundant in the City, and good bills were easily discounted at 3 and a balt per cent.

The following are the closing prices of English and foreign funds on the 24tb of last December :
