Erie shares were active and firmer and advanced to 52>;. The new French loan was steaay and rentes in Paris left off at 55.66. HONEY EASY. Money was easy and plenty at a lower range of rates, the working of the market encouraging the hopes excited by the relaxation at the close of the previous week of a retprn to monetary ease. The rate on call ranged as high as l 64 and interest aarly in the day. bat declined to 6 per cent before j the close of banking hoars, the last quotation being 0 a 7 per ceut. The average rate of the day's business was about 7 per cent coin, which is equlva- , lent to about 8 per cent currency, terms Wall i Street is quite willing to pay, particularly just now i tfter the long siege of high rates. It is said by old { ankers that the recent stringency in money has i had no parallel for persistency and duratiou in the , HISTORY OF WALL STREET. ft will be remembered that an estimate of the average rate on call for the year 1872 made it as I high as 0 per cent. Bat for the six months from the middle of September, 1872, to the middle of March, 1873, the rate would probably be not less than 12 or 14 per cent. It was a six months Df monetary scarcity without equal In tbe recollection, as has been Bald, of tbe oldest men of tbe street. Tbe absence of failures and bankrupt, eles Is a remarkable proof of tbe prosperity of the eommunity. Mercantile paper continued nominal, and was Quoted 9 a 12 per cent discount lor prime names. Foreign ezebange was firmer, and actual business was done at rates nearer tbe asking quotations of the leading drawers, which remained unaltered. GOLD DOWN?115V A 116V'. The gold market opened strong under an early "send-off" by the ollque who gave It a smart upward push the moment business began, the price rising irom 116V to 115V- Under cover of this diversion the clique, who had received timely word of the buoyancy of our bonds in the London market, began selling, the wider knowledge later n of the European despatches giving the market an additional Impetus on tbe downward turn with the eventual result of causing a decline to 116 Vrhe course of the market is shown in the table :? 10 A.

Missouri sixes were firmer, and North Carolines In moderate request. Tr.e Tenesaees recovered to 83 for the old and 83,'i for the new, but F the latter went off again at the close and were offered at 82?*. A Nashville telegram received this afternoon states that the Assessment bill, which is supplementary to the Funding bill, has passed the Lower House of the Tennessee' Legislature. In addition to what has been already said in the controversy as to the sufficiency of this assessment to provide money enough to meet the payment of Interest after tnc proposed resumption in July, 1874, the aosertlon Is made that the Finance Hoard, - i tomposed of the Governor, Treasurer and Auditor * or the State, will hold that the moneys raised by assessment are to be devoted to the t PAYMENT OP INTEREST on the State debt In advance of and In preference to all otber claims. The Impression remains, howtTor. that ail this leclalatiou wiil f?u to raise the NHW Y OR] NTtaoe reqnlsite to enable the State to resume interest payments aa early aa contemplated.

The government list was strong and buoyant and prices advanced In face of the decline in gold, the long sixes or '91 being held at 119 K, white the new flvcsjoae to 1J.1X, the 67's closing at 117*. in addition to the demand for Europe there Is a wide inquiry irom domestic sources for the Investment of capital during the expeoted monetary relaxation of the Summer, not to speak of the current orders from the Eastern states for the transter or taxable cash Into the non-taxable secuntles of the United States against the 1st of April, when statements of PERSONAL PROPERTY are required by the local authorities. Something of the demand is also reierable to a demand from parties who have had deposits In banks, but have been alarmed by the stoppage of so eminently respectable a concern as the Bull's Head Bank.

STOCKS STRONG AND ITIGITER. The stock market was weak at the opening, and 1 for half an hour or so appearances lavored the bearish side of the street, prices yielding during this interval, a fraction of X a ^percent. But the feeling .changed as if by magic under the easier .working of the money market, and prices not ouly recovered but started forward at avsmart pace, their advance being accelerated by* the announcement from Washington that the Treasury had again drawn upon the EXTRA GREENBACKS to the extent of half a million or so, making the total now outstanding $2,670,000, being an inflation of the currency of that amount the past few weeks. It was rumored also (although subsequently denied), that the New York Central Railroad sterling loan of $10,000,000 had been negotiated In London, the effect being a strong rise in Central, which helped to lead the general market in the upward direction. The chief Improvement . was in Pacific Mall, which advanced to 57 ff, although it failed to hold all of the Improvement to the close. Panama sold at 116?i, and Harlem was firmer in the vicinity of 136. Late in the day WJnctnrn fTninn rlfiplinofl fn RRL' nn Mia rftfinrt.

The trade movement was fair to-day, the gen eral merchandise markets evidencing Increased activity, and In some cases business was consummated on a higher basis. The cotton market was fairly active, while prices for spot cotton were to some extent nominal. There was a better movement in dry goods, both cotton and woollen; also in wool, groceries, Ac. At the Produce Exchange flour remained quiet, while wheat was also quiet, though firm, especially for prime samples of Spring, which were wanted to some extent at lull previous prices. Some were taken for milling, and some were wanted for shipment, but the demand was checked j by the extreme views of holders and the | firmness In freights, steamer room being held at higher rates. Corn was also firmer, but no bnsl- ! ness of consequence was done, as few were willing to pay the advanced prices demanded. There was { an Increased movement in oats and higher prices t were the natural result. Whiskey was steady at ' unchanged prices. Provisions were strong, though I the demand was moderate. Pork was held a little I firmer, while lard was salable at a slight advance. 1 C'ofkke.?The market for kio was considerably firmer, owing to the favorable construction of late j telegrams from Rio. At late quotations there was a good demand for cargoes, but holders declined to sell, ! except at advanced figures.

HEAL ESTATE HATTEIIS. The City Hospital Property Rented to i Boston Parties for 930,000 Per "Annum. ; Yesterday was rather a quiet day at the Ex- > change as well as in private transactions.

Ball, lor $17,025. HOW OUR CITY FATHERS ECONOMIZE was vividly illustrated yesterday by the scene in the Common Council when the renting of the City Hospital property, for occupation by the Commissioners of l'ubiic Works, I'ark Commissioners, Ac., came up ior action. It is known that this estate had been offered to the city at an annual rental of $26,000. one of the brandies had passed upon the measure, but action thereon by the other was deierred until yesterday. When the ordinance was brought up the statement was made that a Rastou tlrm, having noticed in the Herald that their buildings were for rent, came on, bid $30,ooo, being $4,ooo more than the city was to pay, and carried off the pri/.e. Thus this matter was squelched, and the departments will have to look lor accommodations elsewhere. This incident fully demonstrates that property eligibly located always commands good prices, and that the owners are by no means beholding to tardy legislation of the Corporation to dispose of their pos- 1 sessions.

A singular case of criminal brutality, which may result in loss of life, came to light in Momsania, 1 Westchester county, yesterday, on the arrest of a coachman named <?art I.omberg, who ia In the employ of a clergyman residing at Westchester village. It seems that on the 13th Instant the accused was driving along the Southern Boulevard ' when he, as is alleged, deliberately drove Into and overturned a phaeton containing two ladles, named respectively Mrs. Wallace and Miss Bullock, the lorrner sustaining a fracture ol tne collar bone, a broken arm and othentnjuriea, from the effects of which she nas since lain 111 a critical condition. As the prisoner lost no time in getting away rrom the scene or collision, his identity and arrest were matters which have since almost puzzled the police authorities, hut Captain Bobbins at length succeeded In ferreting out his man, who was secured as above stated by Roundsman Belliv and Officer Hogan, of the Morrtsania police force. Lomberg does not deny the charge, hut ) says, in extenuatiou of his offence, that the ladi's were driving on his side of the boalevard. He was held for examination. RUMORED LARGE WHISKEY SEIZURE. Excitement Around the United State* Marshal's Offlec?The Capture a Humbug. Oultc a sensation was created In the vicinity or the United States Marshal's office. In Chambers street, yesterday morning, by the appearance on the sidewalk of about a dozen barrels labelled Monongahela whiskey and a tew casks, the contents of which were not apparent. A rumor was at once set afloat that the ofllcers of the revenue service had effected a large capture; that scterai illicit stills bail been seized, and that these barrels were a part of the spoil, a small crowd collected, and newspaper reporters flocked like eagie* to tne Marshal's office in search of Information. It waa soon ascertained, however, that the barrels were empties;" that the ca-ks were only partly filled with sour "Bass."' and that sensation mongers were one and all most egreglously "sold." 8UICIDE BY TAIIHQ POISON.
