The London quotations show steadiness in consequence, consols being about as they were at the close yesterday, while Tnited Mates bonds manifest firmness and a little improvement. The bullion account of TUB BANK OF KNfll.ANP hows a decrease for the week of ?946,000, and that of the Bank of Prance, whioh, for some reason explained, is reported a day earlier than usual, aa increase of 4,ooo,ooof. The large decrease in the former case is an explanation of the advance in Me rate of discount, bnt not of the special meeting or the directors; and the gain in rrancs accounts for an improvement in Prench rentes to K.62. Brie shares were strong on the news from this side of the action of the New York Senate in passing the bill allowing the company to collect hrt at the rate of u cents per inllc, ana advanced to 62. ONKY STU1NOKKT. The money market was stringent, bnt steady in Itastringency, the rates on call ranging within almost precisely the same limits as on the previous i hay?viz., l4t to 1-16 and interest, the market be- ' a shade harder and leaving off at 1-16, or 1-32 j higher than sn Wednesday. Commercial was ' nominal. Foreign exchange was dull and for sight j sterling \ higher, the asking quotations of the i prime drawers being los?.,' and 109Sight bills were firm, but sixty-day bills were weak, and were offered at 108?^ on the street at the close. The difference of J* between long and snort, bills is due, of coarse, to the advance and possible further advance of the Bank of England rate. ( OLD STRONG?f 15A 116SThe gold market opened barely steady, under some disappointment at the announcement that the Bank of England rate had not been further advanced, but soon became strong under purchases to cancel mercantile borrowings of gold, the "shorts" being, a great many of them, quite Umid and afraid to remain on the bearish side of the market, pending the eventualities of the present. noticv of the Rank of England. however not.cn. Ual or feeble that policy may prove to be in Its modification of the gold premium. A relapse from , this strength was succeeded bv still greater Arm- , nesa on the discovery that the highest bid for the government gold and one calling for the w hole amount had been filed by THE SYNDICATE BROKERS, | Whose action was interpreted to mean an irapor- I tant change in the gold-selling policy of the new , Secretary of the Treasury (who would soon have i a opportunity or putting his views into practice, as the April programme ought in the ordinary course of things to be ready by next Sunday night), on the other hand, it was said that they had been cmployed in their regular business capacity as brokers to buy the gold for thevClique in order to help the peculation of the Utter by the effect their bidding would have upon the market. In ss lar as this w as tbe object of their alleged COMPLICITY WITH TltS POOL the result was eminently satisfactory, for the price of gold advanced to 116ft, as against USft, the opening price. The advance In sight sterling also ' contributed to tbe rise, wmch was maintained , pretty steadily until near the close, when the sales fell off ft a ft per cent. The legal tender i ircu- j lotion excited no new influence, the only change for the day being a contraction to the extent of j $83,000, the total amount? outstanding being ' $358,487,000.

STOCKS Dl'Ll. AND STEADY. The stock market was dull and quite steady, the speculative element being disposed to stand si ill and watch the movement in the Hold doom. The only feature of note or interest was an advance or 2% percent in St IVtul to 69%. a further result of the award of the St. Croix land giant already rclerrcd to, and, more recently, it was reportod, of purchases by Jay Gonld with a view to placing himself in the Board of Directors at the election in June next, when, under the classification system, one-third of the Board will go out of office. It was said furthermore that Jay Gouid. whose interests in connection with Northwestern make it quite likely mat kc is auxious to be represented in the St. Paul direction, hau a rival buyer in Hrur.v N.

There was almost no movement iu flour and grain, stocks are very light, and holdurs accordingly demanded lull prices; but there were few orders unexecuted, and these were generally at limits below the current. nominal uiiotntions. These remarks ur.niv with equal force to flour and wheat. Corn watt qnlet, hut very flrm,# holder* generally lnHiHtiDK upon higher prices.

There was a loudly number of spectators assembled at the Ex- I ?hange, and the sales of the day were some what ; store spirited, yet the prices ebtained cannot be iccepted as standard for the general value of property. Everybody now hugs the Idea that bnsiiess, on and alter the 2d prox.,witl become brilliant, tnd that the disposal of the "Post estate" will form ' the basis of future operations, as far aa values by loilars and cents Is concerned. It Is a good thing that there is something to look ahead to, for a revival in real estate transactions; activity is sadly I iceded, and we cannot see any good reason why I he sudden check should have occurred, unless the j masons we advanced, namely, a stringent money iiurket and the unsettled weather has caused the 1 iame.

Mention has already been made of the prevalence n Home parts of New Jersey of the cattle disease, mri a movement Is now making In the legislature o have measures taken to root It out. The neeesity for some action was demonstrated by a case n Newark yesterday. In the slaughter house of saac Bcbwatc was found the carcass of a diseased ow, which had been purchased lor $15 by one choohaus. Nobody knew anything about tUe corupt character or the animal, so an declared, and, trange to say, no criminal proceedings were akeu against anybody by the authorities. The urease was seized, though, and carted over to the 'dead none man."

The Depositori Accept the Proposed Plan for Ret organising the Bank?They Subscribe for , *98,000 of the New Etoek Capital?Significant Hints Abont the Late Officers of the Bank?The Bank To Be Reopened on or Abont the 7th of April?Resolutions to Punish the Defaulters Drawn Up and Adopted. Acenrrtinp to the announcement which was pntW Untied yesterday morning, tho depositors of tnq Hull's Head Bank assembled at Teutouia Hall, Sixteenth street and Third avenue, to hear the rep*"-e of the committee, to whom they hud entrusted tho onerous duty of forming a scheme to reorgsnl/A the Institution. The hull, which is a serv lar^ono w?u am>.rs the number present exceeding turn at cither of tit a previous meetings. Mr. Cainernn, the t'UiurrannJ railed tho meeting to order at teu o'clock, anil after a little preliminary business proceeded 14 make an oiilclal report of the doings of the Cenlcrence Committee, of which bo was Chairman ais?J As bis aduiiiable scheme for reorganizing was published yesterday, he was greeted with proiougecg cheers as he took the floor, and several times during the reading of the report he was Interrupted} by the applause of those present. After dctatltug the primary doings of the conw mittee the report told of how the scheme published! below was born and matured. To Mr. Cameron^ who is a very young man, belongs the honor ofi having invented A NEW SCI) KM K KOtt RESUSCITATING COLLAPfStJ RANKS. Besides being novel ids plan of reorganization is one winch not only secures but benefit* the <lepositors. The plan, its acceptance by the storkholders, and 1 lie opinion of Mr. Williams, an 0 l| authority on banking matters, were detailed, fuel plan of organization is as follows:?A conimtlte^ of five persons Ii.ln boon appointed to do the workj In this committee stockholders and depositor# in 4 represented. Tlie mode of prooednre is after Mug maimer:?'Those holding the present stock of thq bank are to turn it over to this commits tee, who are instructed and empowered i<^ raise a preferred stock capital of $300,030, onehalf of which is 10 be offered to the stockholder* and the other half to the depositors. This preferred stock is to lie entitled to semi-annual Dividend* oi ten per cent, and the old or deierrcd stock is ta have no voice 111 the inanagciucut of the bank un il such time as the earnings of the bank shall plaea them both on an equal footing. The ideuoi placing} the new stock in tfio hands oi the depositor* is ;ii? excellent one, inasmuch as It. secures the hanic froiu a second collapse when Its doors are thrown open, lor those who Iihtc capital stock iu 1 lie concern will uot, when tnc bank is opened, ask fot thru; money and irrcvocakly weaken the bank, win ti will lie in a delicate state of healtii alter its hug severe trial. The plan uas never before been tried, and on the liberality of the depositors if* nucccs* depends. TIIE I88UB AT STAKC in its success may seem to concern those having# money in tins institution alone; but more tliurg this is 10 be looked for, as it starts a precedent! which will relieve the depositors in ail savings institutions from me tyranny of receivers anil thq vexation of tardy legal methods. The report was accepted uud adopted and thft subscription lists opened. Beiore the drawing upi of the checks lor the stock Mr. ti'itelllcy made ? motion to have all the checks drawn out to the order of tho chairman, Mr. Cameron, Tor the deposits in the bauk. Mr. Mutt ametulod or amplified the resolution so as to have the commute!* also with the chairman and to altow him 10 us<? his own discretion in tho premises. The amendment was unanimously curried. The subscriptions were then opened ami stock to 'lie aiiiouni of NINBTY-KldllT THOUSAND mn nUNIIKBU ANOI TWENTY DObl.ARS HUBSCIBED. Mr. Cameron subscribed for $10,u00 and Mri Morrcll for $5,000. The eemmlttce will he sitting at the Ashland House until further notice. During the meet lug Mr. Cameron ottered tin} following resolution:? Be solved, That by the rinsing of the Bull's Bend Butik-a s concern which lias stood high in the confidence of the business community?the depositors are not only seriously injured nnd embarrassed at the eflerf of sets closing, 1a view ot the iieretolor': high staiK.iug ol tin) bank, must be to shake tlia rouddenee of the rouiiiiuiwtys at lance In the salcty ot hanks generally. And as the manager* of moneyed institution, and (he general public have, in our esUmatlun. treated In too lenient m spirit those who, wtilie ilioy were guilty us thieves iu thq worst sense and deserving of punishment us such, liavo been allawed logo unpunished under the'softened none of defaulters, we, ou the contrary, racognur the dan1 ger olsurli a precedent, do hereby declare it to be one inflexible intention to truce the responsibility of the present condition of the Bull's IIend Bunk to toe guilty parlies anil ??e ll)H< sum an example i inane 01 llirm am will have a wholesome effort upon the eomliict of tho officers of Kiuiilar institutions who are entrusted will* the care of money not their own. The resolution was unanimously carried aim J [ oud cheers. Mr. Cameron then offered the following, whirl} was carried Reached. That the depositors of the RuU'm tlcuil Battle are obliged to the inetobeni of the pros* who have ml kindly given their assistance in advancing our tiilerc-ts,' mid that we tender our hearty thuuk.-i lor their ilism. teresteil effort* in our behalf. SIGNIFICANT tHWTS. After a few rambling remarks by the depositor* who were anxious to have the hanlc officials hanged, Mr. Cameron rose and made a lew signiflcant hints which have a decidedly WlllinmHomau flavor. Me said that lie bad called upon a certain gentleman who suhl 11 he could get a good lawyce to stand between him and the law, he would nofi purchase one cent's worth of the stock. Here loud cries of "Name him 1" "It is William.* son I" Ac., cante from the meeting. Mr. Cameron declined to name any one, preferring to leave a space for the scope of the depositors^ imaginations. A gentleman now moved that Mr. Cameron ha elected President of the reorganized bank, but. ad that gentleman declared the actlan premature is was withdrawn, Mr. Cameron accepting it as 4 compliment. The subscription on the part of the stockholder* was at fonr o'clock yesterday afternoon nearly filled, and it is hoped that the depositors' will hq completed to-day. THE LABOR HOTEHENT. The Excitement In Reference to n Hfrlkd Still Continuing?Pinna Vat Un?ieveloped?The "Bomci" Anxiously Watched. The excitement among the various trades in thq city relative to the proposed strike continues. Tim masons, the oarpentera and the branches of laboe engaged in the building trade are on the </iiirio4 waiting for any developments that may occur, and the utmost anxiety is manifested to ascertain what the action of the operators Is likeig to be. The masons have a very strong or* ganlzation, and In the event of being forcut) to It, they purpose to make a bitter fight. Tha great point at Issue is the Intention on the part ol some of the bosses to bring about THE TUN flOL'R SY.STKII AGAIN, which was partially overthrown In the great movement lust Summer. In one or two instances tnn bosses have returned to the old system, having procured men from other Mtaces to do the work. If their experiment should prove succesgjin their example wiU doubtless bo followed by the otm c contractors. The feeling among the carpeuter-i and joiners Is not so strong now as It was a week ago. the imnression training ground that lor tun S resent no attempt will t?o made to lengthen tiio ours of labor. There 1* . NOT MUCH TKOUBLI ABOUT WAOBX, the employers having: stated that they are willinj to continue at the present rare If the menaio equally satisfied. The rate of wages which carpenters now receive Is ?b<>ut U M per da*. Members of the same trade lu Urookiyn only receive tJ per day. The firemen and helpers emploved In the various pusworRs arc 011 sweating the contemplatcil strike. Very little lnu>miaiioii can be procurer! an to what their measm-es wilt lie. The cahineQ makers and pianoforte makers have, as yet, inanilested no Intention or renewing the struggle. < SUICIDE BY TAKING POISON. Lack of Employment the Cause.
