Our cotemporary of the Baltimore Price Current introduces the above table with the following remarks:—

"In all our leading and stable securities, such as Government, State and City loans, Baltimore and Ohio Railroad bonds generally, and bank shares, it will be seen there has lieen no material fluctuation in prices. Those of our securities that partake more of a fancy character are more readily affected by Uie sudden transitions in the money market as well as by other causes—the operations of 'bulls' and ' bears' for example —and to these causes may be attributed, in a great measure, the sudden fluctuations in Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and York and Cumberland Railroad shares. On 15th January. 1851, we quote Baltimore and Ohio Railroad 74} bid; on the 6th of May sales were made at 78} a 78}; from that time until the 14th of November they gradually

declined until they received 601 per share, at which rate sales were made on that day, since which time they have as gradually advanced, and are now held at 62$. We note Bales at the board at 62, with an upward tendency.

"York and Cumberland Railroad shares, however, were quoted on the 15th January, 1861, at 20J; they advanced during the year to ?24 per share, and closed on the 16th December at 18J bid. There is Sume demand for the stock Uwlay at 18J a 18| per share. In Baltimore and Susquehanna Railroad shares there has been nothing done for the last three months. This Company, we learn, will shortly make their annual report, which will show a large increase of business as compared with that of the previous year. The York and Cumberland Railroad Co., we also learn, are steadily increasing in their gross receipts every month, and with the aid of the surplus revenue to be derived from the Baltimore and Susquehanna, may be able, at its next semi-annual report, to pay a fair dividend to its very patient stockholders. Looking to the early connection of this work with the great Sunbury and Erie Railroad, which connection has now become a fixed fact, we do not hesitate to hazard the prediction that to the stockholders it must become, within a few years, one of the most productive stocks in our country."
