What Stock Exchange payments come to on important settling-days is shown by the Clearing-House return appertaining to the last settlement. On that clay the cheques and bills cleared amounted to 61,700,000, of which about 40,000,000 was on Stock Exchange account. This brought the week's total up to 177,800,000, or 8,000,000 above the previously highest total.
