United States Securities were very firm and active throughout the month. The low rate of money has caused a steady home demand for investment; while the extreme ease in the London money market has encouraged a partial movement for shipment. The price of Five-twenties at London has varied but little, and as gold bas risen over two points, bonds on this side have correspondingly adFanced. Toward the close of the month the advance in prices appeared to have increased the number of sellers, and prices fell off from the previous high figures. The amount of Government bonds and notes, State and city bonds, and company bouds, sold at the New York Stock Exchange Board in the two first quar. ters and the first half of the current year, in the month of July and since Janu. ary 1, is given in the statement which follows :

The remittances of specie for the settlement of bankers' credits and on account of Erie and Illinois Central stock returned, as well as for United States coupons due July 1st, have been quite considerable, the total exports from New York for the month being $14,301,702. The exports and receipts from customs duties together amount to $24,096,106; while the receipts from Cal nia, from abroad, and from the payment of coin interest aggregate $14,032,901, It thus appears that the withdrawals from the market for the month exceed the receipts by $10,063,205 ; yet, at the close of the month, the amount of specie in the banks was $969,098 more than at the beginning; showing that $11,032,303 of gold was drawn from outside sources, a large proportion having doubtless been drawn from Washington, Philadelphia and Boston, being the proceeds of July coupons paid in those cities. From the statement below it will be seen that the withdrawals for the first seven months of the year exceed the supply from California and interest disbursements by $47,370,818. This large deficiency has been made up chiefly from sales by the Treasury, overland receipts from the mines, and coupon disbursements by the Treasury at other cities forwarded here for sale. The following formula shows the details of the movement in the first two quarters and first half of the current year and in July, with the total movement since Jan.1 :

Foreign exchanges have ruled firm at the specie shipping point throughout the month. The supply of commercial bills has been very light; a moderate amount of acceptances has been drawn against shipments of Five-twenties; but there has been a large deficiency, which has had to be made up by the shipment of specie. After midsummer the foreign bankers usually settle their European credits; but, although the remittances for that purpose bave been large, an impression prevails that, owing to the very low rates of interest at Lordon, a considerable amount of balances has been allowed to remain unsettled. The following table shows the course of foreign exchange daily for the month :
