Washington, D. 0., April 10-—Considerable interest has been evinced hero to-day in relation to offairs in Wall r*too*, Now York, for tho tum ble in ino price of stocks, etc., was not unex pected by parties who had givon tho matter oloso attention, and were familiar with tho anbjoofe of otoclc-gamblingV Thuao parties, know ing as they did that tho Government would not allow itself to bo drawn into embarrassing com plications by taking any Action whatever in re gard to the recently disturbed condition of tho monoy market, wore -* of tho opinion that, if tho operators in the street woro only let alono, thoy. would work their own ruin or discomfiture, which was generally hoped for, particularly In .view of tho boast made by tho Now York cliqno that If thoy could get gold above 120 thoy could put tho monoy markot beyond tho influence of tho Government. Tho Treasury ac counts show tho condition of that institution to bo bettor to-day than it b&s been for weeks. Secretary Bichardson’s promise that ho would as fast as practicable reduce tho outstanding logal tondorsto the minimum of $350,000,000 w to ho mado good.

United States Treasurer Spinner b&s confis cated tho cheek of Judgo Kelley for S3OO handed him by Judge Poland, by covering it into tho Treasury. Mr. Spinner has waited since tho ad journment of Congress to hear from Oakes Ames about tho ono thousand dollar certificate of Credit Mobilior stock, which ho alleged be longed to Kelley, and which Mr. Spinner sent Amos for tho purpose of having It transferred to Kelley. Amos, howovor, has evidently con cluded to place tho stock “ whoro it will do tho most good," and be is sat isfied that place is not tho Treasury of the United States. Nothing has boon hoard either from Amos or the certificate of stock. Spionor has waited long and patiently for the stock, and ho has at last determined to turn in what lie had. It is understood that Amos does not intend to return tho certificate. THE LOUISIANA SLAUGHTER. The Department of Justice proposes to look up the reported Louisiana outrages with tbo greatest incredulity. The Attornoy-Qonoral said, to-day, that ho hod received no official in formation of tbo alleged trouble, and thinks it greatly exaggerated for political purposes. The President is reported as saying that if the diffi culties are as serious as stated in the newspaper dispatches, ho will order the Federal troops to interfere, not in behalf of either party, but simply to preserve the peace. Much nerv ous anxiety is expressed in all administration quarters as to the extent or truth of the reported troubles. nmsoNAii. Ex-Sonator Diair, of Missouri, has gone to Cliftcn Springs, N.

Tray, Itocoivor, affirming the decree of the Cir cuit Court of Texas, that the Memphis & El Paso Railroad Company are entitled to tho exclusive right to locate tho land certificates, of said State, and to obtain patents therefor on the lands with in and forming apart of tho land reservation of said Company, being tho odd sections granted on tho 20th of Juno, 1808, for a distance of eight miles on each side of the extension line of said road from the eastern boundanr of Texas to El Paso, designated and recognized ac cording to tho returns and maps of the same, now ou file in tho General Land-Office of tho State of Toxas. The ordinance of the Btato Convention granting lauds to actual settlors and repudiating the Memphis & El Paso land-grant is declared unconstitutional. Tho injunc tion of tho lower court against the Governor and Land Commissioners, ro-. straining thom.Ao,. Is mado perpetual. Tho total amount of the land grant is eight million aoros, of which tho eutlro amount passes to tho Toxas Pacific Railroad, conditioned upon 700,000 acres being sot apart for tho redemption of tho Toxas and El Paso bonds, this amount being sufficient for tho purpose. All tho bonds Imowu to have been uttered wore transferred to John Munroo «k Co.. Paris, for receipts agreeing upon ilioir redemption in this amount. They stand in escrow with Duncan, Sherman «fc Co., New York, waiting tho decision. Tho lands provided aro for all expenses of tho Receiver, besides# redeeming the bonds. Tho result will release Qon. Fremont from all tho obligations. Uo has for some years devoted himself almost exclu sively to scouring this result, and has refused political and othor employment until its consum mation. . In view of his success tho absurd French edict against him will probably bo da hastily , vacated as it was inconsiderately ren dered. STEAMBOAT INSPECTORS.

It was resolved that tho Depart ment.' circular requiring one copy of oach certificate of inspection to bo returned to tho De partment is .unnecessary, and that tho Secretary of | tho Treasury bo requested to abolish tho same; and it was also rosolvod that horonltor only two> certificates of inspection shall bo re quired on all tug, tow, and freight steamers. Thb following resolution was referred to tho Committee on Buies and Regulations : 'Jtemtved, That hereafter fire oxllnguluhera shall not be required on tug, low, or freight steamers; neither shall the same ho required on passenger steamers of leea than 100 tons.

Suspension of a Prominent Stock- Dealing Firm Yesterday, Sodded Panic in the Speculative Rail way Shares. The Produce and Cold Markets. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. New York, April 10. — ‘Wall street was tho scono of groat oxcltomont to-day, amounting at ono timo to a panic. Money was scarce and dearer all day, tho afternoon being exceptionally severe. This caused a decline in values very de cided in somo cases. Tho prossnro was felt par ticularly on tho Stock Exchange. At tho open ing, tho markot was Arm at an advance of per cent, but as soon as tho First Board con vened, tno presauro to soli increased on tho port of speculators, whoso margins woro giving out, and others who woro growing woary of tho dally trials of tho monoy markot. Theso parties surm iscd that oven if tho monoy markot would ooso up eventually tbo rush to unload would naturally send prices downward. They, therefore, determined to take timo by tho fore lock and sell tho markot down. They could koop control of tho markot to a certain extent, shift thalr load upon other shoulders, and, when tho time came and money was easy, thoy could cover their shorts quietly, and, aided by tho largo uncovered short Interest which would naturally bo out at that timo, have a basis for a sharp upward turn, which would send prices up to a figure at which holders could re alize and bo thought exceedingly generous for consenting to part with them. Toward noon a rally took place, but tho improvement did not last, and at tho Second Board thoro was another break, under a frantio pressure to; 0011, which carried prices down from Ito nearly 8 per cent. This was caused by reports that some stock houses woro iu trouble. In tho midst of tho excitement it was announced that Barton «fc Allen had failed. Tho street staggered like a drunken man under tho unexpected blow. Mr. Barton is a nephew of Commodore Vanderbilt, and tho house do most of his stock* busi ness. They woro regarded as tho strongest parties on tho street, and ablo to_ withstand any financial crisis. A regular panic ensued, especially in those stocks in which tho firm was supposed to bo most deoplyintorosted, and thoro was a decline of 7% por cent in Union Pacific, por cent in Western Union and Wabash, 3X per cent in Now York Central and Bock Island, per cent in Harlem, 2% por cent In Chios, 3 por cent in 0.0. and 1.0., 2% percent in Lako Shore, 2% por cont in St. Paul Common, 2% per cent in Pacific Mail, 2 per cont in Panama, and per cent in tho rest of tho list. Tho break was chocked by strong parties coming forward to sustain tho markot, hut reactions and counteractions during tho last hour, woro very frequent. At tho close, specu lation was unsettled, but prices woro 1 to 4 por oont bettor. Tho decline represents a very largo sum in tho aggregate. Two or threo other failures are reported, but nothing positive is known in regard to them. Somo brokers had Barton & Allen’s checks returned to thorn by thoir banks as not good, just previous to 3 o’clock. Theso chocks woro deposited yester day for collection through tho Clearing House, and should have been returned before noon to-day. Possibly tho Courts may havo to dooido tho question. Barton & Allon’sHabilitiOs are $2,000,000. Bar ton is tho son-in-law. and Alien, tho nephew, of Commodore Vanderbilt. The other failures, positively known, are Mr. Otis and Mr. Foster, both prominent members of the Stock Exchange. It is also reported that Van Schack & Co. havo gone under. Many other brokers havo lost heavily. Over $1,500,000 will accrue to tho “ shorts ”by to-day’s operations. Tho corridors of tho Fifth Avonuo Hotel wore crowded to-night with oxcited brokers. GOLD. The movement of the last two days In the gold market is explained, this afternoon, by the fact that when some of the parties who broke the price of gold yesterday sought to got back their coin, they found that there was none to bo had. There has not boon any particular combination in gold lately. A very strong capitalist acted on his own hook, and carried his lead without re gard to the views of other bulls. This unanimity of action was disturbed yesterday by one oper ator,' who probably thought it about time to coke a profit on his long gold. Ho accordingly commenced soiling, and that drew into the ring two other operators, who had made up their minds to assist m the movement, and then cover when “ hard pan " was reached. This led to a break to lato yesterday after noon. This morning gold was sold and tho price broke to 117#. When it was ascertained that there was a scarcity of gold, and as was shown by the loaning rate foiling to that of car rying, then on effort was mode to cover, and tho price moved up to hut just before the close it again declined to 117^. PONDS AND EXCHANGE. Governments and foreign exchanges wore heavy and lower. produce. Flour opened easier for most grades under SIO.OO, with larger arrivals, chiefly of spring wheat extras. Shipping grades wore in fair re quest, but tho market closed lower and irregu lar, especially for winter wheat extras. Bales, 9,300 brls; receipts, 15,027 brio. Wheat was easier, with only a limited demand for export, hut white winter was in request for milling at oxtromo prices. Tho stock of the latter is now very light. Sales, 86,400 bu. Pork was higher and fairly active, with Bales m tho jobbing way of 800 brls at $17.76@18.00 for now moss, and $14.00 for extra prime. Two hundred and fifty brls moss, for cash, sold at $17.83; and for future delivery 1,000 brls for May at SIB.OO. Receipts of 1,672 pkgs. Out moats wore generally very quiet, and prices about nominal. Tho absence of urgent export orders is restricting business in this di rection. Dry salted, 9,271 pkgs.

Arrest of Most of the Ringleaders—All Quiet Now. Scenes ami Incidents of tho Dls- turhauco. Special Dltpaleh to The Chicago Tribune, KmanTBViLLE, Ind. April 10.—Tbo puddlors’ strike took plaoo eomo four months ago, on ac count of tho discharge of a part of tbo men who - woro not working to tbo satisfaction of tbo pro prietors. Tbo wbolo foroo of tbo rolling mill loft work and domandod tbo restoration of tbo diflolmrgod bands. Sinco then they Lave boon doing nothing, boing supported hy lliu National Puddlors* Union. A part of thorn bavo gono from boro, but enough wore loft to technically maintain tbo strike in accordance with thoir na- tional rules. They rocolvod money a few days ago, and some of tbo worst of thorn indulged frooly at tho saloons. During the day a fow of thorn counseled peace, and behaved themselves peaceably, and tried to restrain tho ringleaders of tho mob; but others woro violent, and, after tho darkness of tho ovonlng, woro out upon tho streets with guns, challenging the passers-by and demanding tho pass-word. It was very dork in tho early part*, of tho night,, and. as it • was known that the negroes ana others on tho promises of. tho Western Iron Company woro armed and on guard, thoro was not much passing on tho street during that port of tho night. From many of tho houses around shots wore fired at intervals at tho guards, when a volley of minlo-balla would bo returned. Nino shots woro lodged in tho houso of Paddy Smith, asoloon-koepor, from whose upper windows fivo shots had boon fired : also from tho direction of tho patch on tho oast side of tho blast-furnace, ono shot narrowly grazing tho'car of Mr. Watson, tho Superintend ent of tho establishment. This occasional firo was kept up all night. Tho arrival of tho troops from Indianapolis, this morning, produced quiet. Processes aro being iesuoa for tho arrost of as many of tho ringleaders of tho mob as could be identified. Some of them havo already escaped, but will likoly bo arrested. Tho peculiarity of this rob was that tho women woro tho most furi* o, vul tho aggres sors in overy special attack. - / acted like in furiated devils without roauou. Fooling scouro from an attack with arms, they dashed around, Hinging their murderous missiles with a fury that never had an equal at tbo Fivo Points or tho thieving alloys in tbo Strand. Tho hitter wrath, and vile oaths, and obscono speeches would havo dis graced tho purlieus of tho vilest haunts of slu. Tho fooling among tho minors and puddlors over tho employment of colored laborers has boon most iutouso, and inoro&sed as their noo»*® . sitloo became more pressing, and it well known that tho least outbreak would produce a collision. Tho Western Iron Compftpv cdly offered to tho minors and raiders whom thoy hud not diucharpoA ““ opportunity to re sume work, but would not accept nnloaa on suoi» terms os could not bo assent ed to by tho' Company. After •It was evident that tho strike was to bo prolonged, tho mills resorted to tho expedient of of negro labor., Tho lives of tho Messrs. Watson havo boon re peatedly and openly threatened, and for tbo past ton days they havo been subject to insnlt and abuse upon tho streets. All who chose to diffor in sentiment or romaln silent wore “ spotted,’* as they termed it, and tho merchants of tho place woro forced to tako ono side or tho other. Butchers and bakers, and others furnishing supplies, worn called upon for their opin ion on tho merits of the coso on pain of discontinuance of patronage, and many wore threatened with tho torch of tne incendiary unless they cave their adherence to the cause of tho strike. While all tho minors sympathized with tho strike, yet some of them aro law-abid ing, aud have proiossod all along that no violence would bo resorted to, end many utterly disap prove and took no part in tho riot. The same may bo said for a few of tho puddlors. If tho negroes had boon permitted to havo their own way, there would havo boon no neces sity of bringing troops or an extra police force on thoir account. Tnoy wore ready to dofond themselves, and would have boon tho aggressors after tho attack upon tho boarding house, if it had not boon for tho restraint of Mr. Watson, who kept thorn within doors as long os it was safe to do so. , . _ , lt , Thoro aro thousands of stones afloat this morning of incidents connected with tho night and afternoon’s work, somo of which prove to bo true and others false. Mr. Matthews was not shot by tho negroes as reported, but was struck by a stone or heavy cinder on the hack of tho. head, as he was walking away from tho crowd of rioters. Ho appeared upon tho streets this morning. . „ , Mr. Derby was beaten very badly. His face and head wore mashed almost into a . jolly. Mr. Barridon was injured internally, but not seriously. Mr. Morborgor was beaten, and wont homo to find his only child just dying. Tho body of his dead chad and family wore taken away from homo for as tho riot occurred, information was sent to tho negro minors coming to thevillago from thoir work. Two of tho Messrs. Watson, who with tho foreman were at tho bank, were also informed of tho danger of coming to tho village. Tho negroes, instead of coming around tho town, and entering from tho oast sido as advised, camo*up directly through tho crowd waiting for- them, and tho lively skir mish that followed was not inferior to the old riots of. “Know-Nothing” times. Many shots wore fired and blows glvon and received by each party before tho negroes wore safe in tho guard ed premises. This riot la another evidence of the sad effects of whisky. The miners in one of tho coal-banks near Knightsvillo wore off duty yesterday, and enjoyed, as reported on the streets, free beer, and they imbibed freely,and the K' hors, having received a remittance from the , had also boon indulging. Tho proprietor of that bank indulges himself, and. in new of the probable termination of tho miners* strike, hod turned tho day into a drinking holiday, and, hut for the impetus thus given by beor and bad whiskey, it is believed that the riot would not havo taken place. As tho saloon-keepers reap the richest harvest during tho strikes, they are tho aiders and abettors of the difficulty between tho laborers and tho proprietors, and Uko to soo tho strike continue. But for those dens of vico tho community would doubtless bo moral and re spectable. ______ ANOTHER ACCOUNT.
