Thcu rror is of no material importance in itself, and very probably would escape the notice of nine but of ten, even of those who have the moans of informing themselves correctly with regard to the matter, but nevertheless, as it may lead some of your readers into a misapprehension upon the subject, I send you the following synophis which exibils the exact state td* the case.

Tiik BlfOX.lta Money Market.—From late accounts it appears that the monetary allaiis of I.n»l nid are in ■ somewhat deranged state, caused in part, it is said, by the acarci'.y of money, and the refusal Of the Pank Fn-'buid to discount in many instances, even the best paper. The bullion in this Hank amounted in August last to upwards of sixteen millions sterling, but is now reduced lo less thin ten millions, rendering it necessarv that the directors should curtail their discounts. A correspondent of the Atlas says :— The elb'ct of this monetary pressure is very severe upon the manufacturers and nor* bants, throughout all the large towns.
