Exportations of the Precious Metals.

The shipments of the precious metals are carried on almost daily to a very large amount; indeed since the commencement of the present month, the exportations of gold and silver coin had been more extensive than for a long time previously. Within the last fortnight, the entries for exporting gold and silver coin, and bars, have not been for less than 1,800,000 ounces, of which nearly 300,000 ounces consisted of gold. The value of the gold exported is upwards of 1,150,000l.; of that of the silver about 350,000l. It is understood that the Bank of England are large exporters at present. In the price of Bullion there is no variation.
