DECLINE IN FOREIGN EXCHANGE .The G-old Market Lower, but Rallied by the Clique. Prices at the Stock Exchange Unsettled and Irregular. A Decline in Pacific Hail and a Rise in Western Union.

Flour continued quiet. Wheat and corn were firmer. the dry goods imports. The total Imports of foreign dry goods at the port f New York during the week ending March 20, 1878, were of the specie value of $2,987,416. The amount marketed during the same period was *2,668,423. THE FOREIGN MARRET. The London quotations were steady for consols and United States bonds. Erie shares were firmer and closed at 6l)f, equivalent to about 64>i in our currency. French rentes in Paris advanced to 06.66, doubtless on the gain of 600,000 francs in the bullion account of the Hank of France during the 'past week. MONEY EASIER. The money market was active?perhaps It deserved to be called stringent?during all the earlier portion of the day, the rate on call among the stockbrokers standing at 1-16 to 1-16 and interest the greater part of the time. Alter two o'clock, however, there was a sensible relaxation, and the rate yielded to 1-32 and then to Bevcn per oent, Cold, anc^ eventually loans were made at as low a8 six per cent Ijefore three o'clock, the sidewalk market breaking lip at the earliest it has separated In a good while. In explanation It is said that the clique of meney squeezers were unable to control the rate any lonver. the flow of currency to this cltv from the "Went making a steady accumulation or money ont?tde the sources from which they drew for their dally operations in the street. It Is pretty generally understood that the clique were supplied with money by certain bank officials, on the agreement that they were to allow the banks seven per cent and a share of the "commission," or boons, obtained Tor the use of the money from the stockbrokers. Mercantile paper was nominal and unchanged. DECMNE in foreign exchange. The foreign exchanges were weak and lower under large sales of bankers" bills drawn against the export to Germany of United States bonds and also of shipments of Erie to London, ltates were reduced % at the desk, but prime sterling was to be had at 107J4 a 108*4.

It will be remembered that the small return of imports last week was attributed to the non-arrival of several cargoes, and that the deficiency would appear as an overplus this week. This calculation has not proved a correct one, as the Custom ilouse figures Bhow. Despite these influences the clique, who had some difilculty In managing the CASH GOLD at the Clearing Bouse, but got a better "purchase" upon it for the three o'clock deliveries, succeeded In restoring the market to 11 5* at the close, their efforts being assisted by the announcement from Washington tliat the Treasury had been compelled to draw upon the extra greenbacks to the extent of another million of dollars.

OOVmNMENTS BUOYANT. The government list was active and buoyant upon large purcuases by the German bankers, who seemed to have heavy orders In the 'Si's and 'fit's, which were strong at 119 and lit respectively.

BERNHARD LEVINE. BROO&LVif'S DISGRACE. The Grand Jury Presenting the Dilapl* dated Raymond Street Jail?A Perfect Penitentiary. The Grand Jury of the Kings county Court of Oyer and Terminer have been visiting the various public institutions of the county, and yesterday reported the result of their observations to Judge Pratt. They stated that their examination of the Penitentiary, Hospital and Lunatic Asylum gave them unqualified satisfaction; but they made a special reference to the Penitentiary under the charge or Keeper Shevlin and his deputy, Mr. Edward B. Cruramey, which seemed to them to have very nearly reached perfection, and fully equalled, if not surpassed, the well-known Penitentiaries at Albany and Concord. The Grand Jury were not so favorably impressed with the Almshouse and Nursery, and as lor the Raymond Street Jail they said they could scarcely find language strong enough to express an abhorrence of the condition of things In that Institution. This state ol affairs, however, was not tho result of any mismanagement on the part of Sheriff W llllams or Keeper Howard C. Conrnddy, bnt the fault of the construction of the building and its unfitness for the purposes lor which It is used. Here Is the picture ol the Institution as drawn by the Grand Jury The tall 1* a convenient receptacle of a miscellaneous class of prisoners, ma.lc up ?>t hoys, young men, abandoned and vagrant women, fraudulent debtors and othera, who are being daily sent there ft-om the Sheriff's office and the several criminal Roartsof' the city. The cells and other accommodations at the jail arc .wholly inadequate to the proper care and regulation or so large a number of prisoners and ol such various grades and conditions. Disorder, contusion, brutality, obscenity ' and general demoralization ol the inmates arc the i Inevitable results, which cannot he remedied hv any care ol the Sheriff or Ills deputies. The Jury respect- ' fully and earnestly recommend to the authorities of the county the immediate erection of a Jail building ' which will comport with the dignity of the county anil i furnish the necessary facilities lor improving the sanl- | tar.v and moral condition ol its inmates. The accommodations tor detained witnesses at the Jail sre entirely , Inadequate. These unfortunate persons, guiltv of no ' crime, are placed In crowded apartments nnd are sup- ' plied with ordinary prison rations at an expenso to the county of thirtv-dve cents per day. Lvery generous leci- ] lug revolts at tne flagrant In Inst Ice. The Grand Jury also presented a number of in- 1 dlctuteuta and were tlien discharged.' ' th]j BULL'S HEAD BANKi Interview with Mr. WUIUmMn^rhe Cnuee or the Deficiency Yet a. Mjrifery? Application Iter n Receiver Made to Jnatiee Famehcr?Mr. Edward Stepheneon, or the Filth National Bank, Probably the Man. The Ball's Heed Bank remained closed all day yesterday, and none bat depositors and those having business with the officers were admitted. Mr. Erastns Mead, the lately elected President, was kent busy all day answering In person and by letter the numerous Inquiries made of him regarding the condition or the bank, Its probable losses and the amount of money the depositors would receive. The Twenty-filth street entranoe of the bank was gnarded by two policemen from tne Eighteenth precinct, who blnntly refused every one admittance who was minus a. bank book. After mnch delay and a deal of coaxing tbey were prevailed upon to allow the Hibald representative to pass In and see the President, Mr. Mead. At first Mr. Mead was very reticent, but alter a little while he became slightly communicative, and said that, as yet, there had been no new developments in the affairs of the institution. He continued"The clerks are hard at work, but it will be several days before anything like a correct estimate of the losses can be made. All the books of depositors will have to be presented before we will be able to state what onr losses are, and even then our figures will not be exact." He told the Herald man that if he wonld call later in the day he would be happy to give him additional information regarding anything that might have transpired.. Knowing that a meeting of the directors was to be held the party addressed waited in the bank until they arrived, and, when the gentlemen went to the president's room, on the floor over the bank, to hold their meeting, he requested admission, but was refused on the ground that the meeting was informal and nothing in reference to the suspension would done. Failing of success in this quarter, Mr. Richard Williamson, the late president, who resigned Bhortly beiore the mutilated books were discovered, was called upon at his house, No. 133 Fifth avenue. Mr. Richard Williamson, Jr., saw the reporter and professed himself willing to Impart any information that was In his possession. He said his father was engaged at dinner and he did not care to have him disturbed. After reviewing the story or the suspension, as told in yesterday's Herald, Mr. Williamson said he had nothing further to say, and was about to retire, when Mr. Williamson, Sr., came from the dining room and, in an excited manner, said he wanted to say something to the reporter. The son tried hard to make him*remain silent, but the old gentleman, who is a very nervous person, insisted on his right to speak his opinion. His mourn oeing iuu 01 nnmasugateu turitey auu cranberry sauce, he was unable to make himself intelligible, but after a strenuous effort the mouthful was swallowed and he answered the following questions "Mr. Williamson, it has been said that yon are in possession of inlormation as to what ^disposition was made of the fnnds of the bank?" "I do not know anything regarding the money that it Is claimed is deficient in the bank, and of the mntiiation of the books. I am as ignorant as a babe unborn. I know they have been tampered with, for I have seen them; but beyond that I know nothing." "Yon have neard the report that yon were a heavy operator in real estate while In the office of President, I presume?" "I have, and most emphatically deny that I was any more interested in real estate during my presidency than I was before it. My son and myself have "always been heavy holders or real estate." "Were you requested to resign by the directors?" "No, I was uot. I resigned on account of ill health. My health has been falling for some time,, and ray doctors advised me to take a vacation." "In reference to the directors, Mr. Williamson, was there any division among them?" "There was not. on the contrary they were in nntson, and there never was a rapture between any ol them either as directors er as private Individuals." "Old they as a body do anything to hamper the workings or the bank or In any way disorganize Its workings?" "No. I never heard it said that they did." Mr. Williamson said that he would like to have it known that he is as anxious to have the affairs cleared up as any one else, inasmuch as he and his son are among the heaviest losers, they being stockholders. At five o'clock Mr. Mead was again called upon. He said he knew what action had been taken by the Hoard of Directors, but would tell nothing further than that Mr. Wlllett, the cashier, had necn* called up with the ledgers, which were closely examined. The deficiency Is not likely to amonnt to more than $1G0,')00; but this is mere speculation, although Mr. Mead is rather dogmatic in his statements.

A small number of depositors of the bankrupt Stuyvesant Bank met at the corner of Eighth street and the Bowery last evening, with a view 01 de vim up; bjuio uiroun mi uuiniu n |iui uuu Ul their tands entrusted with the institution. The conversation was of a general character, nothing being agreed upon, except the avowed purpose to combat in the United States District Courts to-day the proposition or Mr. John H. Piatt, receiver, who desires to sell the lease of building No. 744 Broadway to the Sixpenny Savings Bank lor $10,000. The depositors assembled assert that better terms than this can be obtained, inasmuch as the Stuyvesant Bank originally paid the sum of $00,000 for the lease, extending a period of ten years, and there are seven yet to run, and, under the clrcnmstances, the transfer as proposed would be manliest injustice to them. Although the Stuyvesant Bank failed eighteen months ago the depositors have never received a dime oi their money, and hence they feel indignant at the delay. SEVENTY MILLIONS FOE HEIRS.
