The London tjtock Ex change will be closed on Friday, Saturday and Monday. In Paris rentes closed at 50.27. TUB (iOVERMENT PURCHASE OF BONDS. The proposals to sell five-twenties to the govern ment were ten in number, tendering a total of $2,428,960 at prices ranging (ex coupon) from 114.49 to 115.90. The purchases, which were confined to $600,000, were made at 114.49 a 114.97, or at an average of about 3* per cent below their par in gold. MONEY UNSETTLED. The money market was easier in the average of the day's business, hut the rate on call was quite unsettled and fluctuated frequently. The early dealings were at about 3-16 per cent, with an occa sional loan at * per ccnt, which consideration was paid quite freely in turning stocks. By midday the rate had become *, and between two and three o'clock there was a momentary drop to 7 per cent gold, with a pretty active l'RESSURB TO LEND at 1-64 a 1-32 and interest. Before the close of banking hours these offerings were absorbed, and a later inquiry was maintained at 1-16 and even * per cent again. The influx of currency from the interior is progressing as rapidly as can well be ex pected, but as :he receipts so far are mostly national bank rotes, the lending powers of the banks are ratter weakened than strengthened, and wlllcontinni to be until a larger proportion of greenbacks ente-s into these receipts. Meantime, as we have airetly pointed out in discussing the Treasury prograMne of heavy gold sales, the OPERAJONS of the treasury will tend to heli'the banks In the substitution of gold for an equfalent of these notes, unless the locking-up clique, manage to buy the gold and pay for it with greenbacks, as they have done several times already the past and present months. The rate of exchangeat Chicago on New York has ad vanced to * a 6-10per thousand. Mercantile paper Is without other nan purely nominal quotation. Foreign exchange was firmer and rather more active, as a consi|uence of the easier rates for money, and rates it the counter, were marked up to 107* a 108* forprime sterling, with actual busi ness at a concessim of * a * per ccnt.

Tne gold market was re verisli and unsettled be tween the extreme* of 117* and 118*. The lower of these figures wu/ touched in the forenoon quite early under sales 'gainst the buoyancy of thc6< s In London, and ?e higher extreme was the conse quence of a rail under the easier terms for carry ing gold. Bu?*he market again drooped to 117* in the artern<on, with the closing sp.ism in money, and eventially left off at 118*.

As allowing the growing popularity in Europe of American rallroaU bonds as Investments we liave the announcement in recant Loudon papers or the organization in that city of two companies, with a combined capital of $20,000,000, whose purpose and plans, as set lorth In the following extract iroin the prospectus of one of thein, arc quite flatteriug to this country and its enterprises. The pro spectus coinmeuda itself to domestic as well as to foreign capitalists. It says:? ? of. th? company is to afford a reliable and convenient medium lor the investment of money 1. first mortgage bonds or American raU louds, a class of securities which, while vielilinir a considerably higher average rate of interest tlian those selected by foreign government securities trusts are more steady andsaie.

Moreover, besides .viVi. it?, the Irtt,,ciilses and equipments orval ?any *f these mortgage bonds are . d )y enormous land grants or State guarantees, or by traillc guarantees or several co operating lines. American railroad mortgage bends, which, on an average, pay better than British colonial bonds, are. like our railway debentures, pre-eminently steady and safe. Judiciously selected, their secu rity is ali but absolute, and nssnrance Is rendered doubly sure In the case ol the proposed trust by the area over which Its investments will be dis tributed. it appears to be almost certain that specie pay ments In the United States will be resumed within the next lour or live years, and the resumption will be followed by an increase in the valme oi cur rency mortgage bonds to the extent of ten to fiiteen per cent.

STOCKS HIGHER AND STRONG. The easier tenor of the money market and the more cheermi expectations or Its Immediate future led to a stronger and more active market at the Stock Exchange, the chier feature being an ad vance of nearly two per cent in Western Union which sold at 86*. Erie rose to 65* , in sympathy with the London quotation. New Jersey Central was firmer at 98 and Harlem recovered to 126 Panama advanced to 109, but fell off at the close to 107*. Messrs.
