COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE.

23rd July, 1653.

, Gold has advanced slnco last week, and Is now quoted at £3 17s. Od., at which price It Is firm, with but a small supply offering.

The escort robbery, and the butchery connected with It, have caused great excitement in all elalie» or tho community, but particularly In commercial circles. Since the robbery or tlio Nelson nothing has been per- petrated or »uch enormity, though the present cold- blooded, cruel, and treacherous act Tar outstrips even that deed In all the shocking details or mean cowardlco, and cool and calculating ferocity, Tho importance of tho robbsry Is lost light of In the unusual reeling or horror and detestation with which Its perpetrators aro regarded, It bolng almost beyond belief that fourteen such miscreants could bo found In the wholo world so dead to every manly sentiment, as tho bloodthirsty treachery or this net ha» exhibited at our very doors. Independent or the lo»» willoh tho Escort Company must sustain by this doplornblo business,

Tear It will »o »hake publlo confidence, as to give a ratal blow to It» futuro »ucees», though no human calcula- tion» could provide, and no escort whatever bo proof, against such fiendish treachery as lia» been displayed In tills outrage.

In banking and monoy matters, we havo little altera- tion to report. A considerable amount of spcclo has como In during the week, which will likely continue yet for »otno time, though wo havo already adverted to tho fact that the amount of thoRO exports ha» now received a chock In England, which will likely exhibit It» effect« hero In the course of a few weeks.

Tho London Chartered Bank of Australia ha» now oponed their new premises In Colllns^trcot, whero they havo »bown oonslderablo tasto and activity In providiug themselves with tho necessary accommodation. Thl» eilnbllshment has tho largo subscribed capital or £600,000 ; the whola or which has been taken up In Eng. land, in terms or their charter, whloh renders that com- pulsory. But we understand there Is a provision enti- tling the Director» to raise a certain additional amount or capital, whleh (hey proiHiso doing, so as to enable them to give it orr In tho colony, so as to create an ail dltlonal Interest In tlio establishment hero, Wo under- stand this Bank Is established, and Is proposed to bo conducted, on n liberal basis, and In a friendly spirit with II» shier establishments In this quarter,-tho Directors having no Intention to do business In a spirit or competition, but merely to alford additional facilities lo Irado In a liberal and honnrnblo spirit for willoh the character of their manager and ofllccrs Is a sufficient

gunrantce.

The price of gold hit advanced during the week to 77t. 6d., the demand for thlpment ky the Eagle being

aicrlbed at the cauto of the rise.

We obtervo that the wish of the Sydney Council hat been compiled with hy the Home Government, in re- gard to granting a branch of the Royal Mint being eitahllihcd there, '.while that of Victoria hal been postponed, and that of South Australia refused. The

WHOLESALI. PRICE CURRENT.

July 23rd, 1853.

Trade hat been languid during the week, but rather

a better feeling existed towards Its close, so far at least J

as to confirm largo holders In their determination to

maintain thslr prices. With the exception or flour, ¡ there havo been no transactions or any mom mt, but In that article there have been a good many Inquiries, and a row lots of good sound stuff hate changed baiuliatSSs,

Sour flour, too, lias rather risen lu consequence or tho I large shipment« making to Englsnd, which, no doubt,

will pay we)l enough, seeing that clio freight on the »r. j tiela I« io low a» to bo almost nnpiliml. This bns

lloved the market materially, and high prices monow I »iked by tho targe bolder». Colonial flour, It will bo

obiervcd, Is alio firmer | both mill» were quoting Hie bott quality at £30. Oatt, maize, bran, and hay malu. tain tholr formor quotation», and, perltapt, the latter

article li a aliado higher.

Provision» and groceries, bacon, ham», and particu- larly chene, are rallier firmer. Pickle« and oilmen's itorei, fruit, and preserve«, arc lilli dull of lale, Sugar liai fallen a little. Crush«! lump has been »old at 66»,, whick I» « declino of 4i. per owl. ou formor price».

Brandy, notwithstanding tlio large Importation!, hal not declined any further, mid generally other spirit» arc flrmof thlt wcok, though sales uro few. Port and .berry continuo at former price», with n small demand, and for light wines there Is no Inquiry,

Ale, beor, and porter still rather decline, Porter of good brand has been »old Hil» last work nt £7 pov hog«, head, mid «t 11«. per dozen i but tlteio »ale» have boon forced, and those who have »locks arc now Inclined to hold on ralhor than tell at theio low flgurei.

Building material! wo need scarcely refer to, fur they mutt cnnllnu», at least for «onie time1, at preiout high prlcoa, willoh are a» finn na last week, and give no tyniplom of any reduction,

Under the circumstances it is dlfficnlt to submit an accurate price list, when one merchant Is holding on at remunerativo prices, and another forcing sales at ,a large reduction ; but wo give the following list as being as close an approximation to accurate quotations as the state of the markets will permit :
