An amusing incident occurred at the I noon call of the Stock Exchange to-day. As soon as all the members had taken their seats, Mr W. Col beck rose to his feet, and said that, following upon a good old custom elsewhere, in view of the fact that there was not a single transaction at the first rail, he wished to present to the chairman. Mr G- A. Buttle,, a pair of white gloves. "I trust," added Mr Colbeck. "the need for this will never occur again." Amidst laughter. Mr A. Carrick then took the gloves from Mr Colbeck and gravely handed them to j the chairman, who remarked that it ( was with extreme regret he accepted the little present, and, like Mr Colbeck, he trusted it would never occur again. "The circumstances axe somewhat unique," said Mr Buttle; "but cheer up, boys, ' there is a good time coming, and I believe it is not in the far distance .either," '
