There was a good attendance of home buyers at the commencement with an unusually large number from France. Much animation was manifested in the biddings.

The market closed with great spirit, an advance on the opening rates having been obtained in many instances. From the steady consumption now going on in this country and on the Continent, it is evident that a restoration of confidence is gradually taking place.
