The Treasury programme of gold sales and bond purchases lor the month of April Is tabulated as follows:? BOND PURCHASES. April 9 $600,000 April 23 $600,000 Total GOLD SALES. April 3 $1,500,000 April 17 $1,600,000 April 10 1,500,000 April 24 1,600,000 Total $6,000,000 THE FOREIGN MARKET. The London quotations came steady for consols, tout lower for United States bonds, the latter being adversely affected In tbe foreign market by the rise In the gold premium. The street rate for money in London was reported to be 4M a 4X per cent, the bank minimum being 4 per cent. The new French loan was steady. Erie Bhares were weak and de clined to 51*4. A "LOCK-UP" or MONBT. The long prevalent scarcity In the money market ?culminated to-day in a spasm of stringency which will doubtless form a conspicuous Incident In the history or Wall street. The rate on call, after open ing at the "1-16 and Interest" to which the street had grown accustomed the past few weeks, ad vanced during banklug hours to K per cent a day, and in the Interval, after three o'clock, to as liigh as X per cent a day in addition to 7 per cent per annum. In other words, borrowers of money paid lor Its use over night at the rate of 280 PER CENT PER ANNUM I This was no exceptional or rare rata. It was paid for $1,000,000 by one very prominent banking house In Nassau street and for numeious lots of one hundred dollars down to Ave thousand dollars, the same rate being bid as late as ten jnlautes to four o'clock, to which time, of course, a number of bank accounts had to remain open. The explanation of this extraordinary stringency lies in artificial manipulation of the market, the success of which was insured in a great degree by the SITJDEN CALLING IN OF LOANS by the Broadway Bank to meet April disburse ments on city indebtedness. The parties locking up the mouey borrowed right and left all the fore noon and during a greater portion of the afternoon, aud did their work so wildly that they were unable to procure col laterals enongh to pledge against all the money they engaged, largo sums going over unemployed, hut standing subject to their call, the money itself being Its own collateral and the lender gut ting the "share" for Its use as much as if It had gone out on certified check. It remains to be seen whether this sort of business Is not within the scope of the regulations of the Stock Exchange which forbid "FICTITIOUS TRANSACTIONS" of any kind. At least the Governing Committee ought to Investigate the matter and pronounce upon its legality, it is not intended In this In stance to throw any discredit on the lenders, all of whom were, doubtless, the victims of the "Shy locks" who locked up money through their un witting agency. The game may not be repeated with their consent, but It was successful to-day, and that Is enough to point our moral. In this connection, as showing the extent of the con spiracy to damage the money market, we have the following telegraphic correspondence, which explains itself:? * Nmr Tobk, March 29. 1R7S.

At bucIi a time, It is hardly necessary to Fay, mercantile paper was altogether nominal. For reasons which suggest themselves the foreign ex changes were demoralized, and sales of prime Blxty-day sterling were reported at 107 X, when the quotations at the desk had been already lowered to 108 and 108% for prime sixty-day and sight bills.

Mean time a sensation bad been preparing Ip Uiq gold market, (be olunaxot wblcb eame an boar or so e*Uer than (bat la the money parket. both movements being, it la aaid, more or leas the doings ai (be Mae parties, although on (hla point (here la great room for dispnte, aa, lit any ordinary Tiew of (be gold speculation, l( aeema hardly probably (hat its authors should tighten money upon themselves. The more reasonable ln(erpretatlon seems (o be (hat TWO DISTINCT CLIQUES hare been a( work during (he day, and possibly a (bird, made up o? members of (he o(her (wo, (he laa( one being concerned more pardouiarly in pro curing a fall in prices a( (he S(ock Exchange. The parties operadng In gold are be((er known (o the street than their oonjrbret In the other departments of speculation, particu larly as they hare been cousplcuous In "bulling" gold ever since last year or since they were excluded from participation in the negotia tion of the new loan, the cllqne having ramifica tions in Wall s(ree(, Broad a(ree( and Exchange place, and being of English, German and American consistency. In to-day's operations A PRETEXT for a further rise was offered in the maln(enanee by Secretary Richardson ot the March programme of gold sales; but It is quite as probable that the clique would have made their demonstration what ever Mr. HlchardBon had done. Indeed, at the first Tiew, the April programme ought to be regarded as unfavorable to au udvance in gold, and possibly the clique deemed t( more conducive (o (heir Inter ests (o run (he price up in face of such an Interpre (adon of (he programme, and trust (o (he bolduess or (be movemen( lor i(s success. Whatever their counsels, they succeeded in giving the market so strong an upward Impetus that they convinced tub last reluctant "short" * tha( 11 was dangerous lor him (o remain a "bear" any longer, and he aud his brethren began cover ing accordingly. The demand on this account, the buyers coming from among the Importers as well as from the ranks of the professional speculators, enabled the cllqne to run the price up to 118 *, tlie advance being attended with sceues of great ex citement, particularly as reports got Into circula tion (ha( (he clique would make cash gold worth to-morrow all the way from one (o Ave per cent ror l(s use? a very boas(fnl (hreat ? when 1( Is remem bered (bat THB CLIQUE bad all (bey could do (o (ake care of (heir own gold (o-day, paying as high as a slx(een(h per cen( for l(s carrying (his afternoon, (lieir absorp (lon of funds In (he process being one of (he many causes of (he excessive sdtngency in monoy. A( (be quo(ations of 118 and above the marke( gave signs of heavy sales on the part of the clique, or a( ieas( on (he part of the dozens of lncky operators who followed in (heir wake, and tbc price dropped back to 117*, closing eventually at 117*.

Gold cleared Gold balances M37,7aO Currency balances 2,143,484 The Sub-Treasury paid ou( $12,000 on account of Interest and $2,400 on account of redeemed five twenties. GOVERNMENTS LOWER. The government market opened strong In sym pathy with the advance In gold and in answer to large orders from out of town buyers; but the pressure for money Induced heavy sales for cash, under which the market reacted and declined to the extent of * a * per cent, the currency sixes being weakest and falling to 114*. Tha following were the closing prices : ? United States currency sixes, 114 a 114*; do. do., 1881, registered, 117* a 118; do. do. do., cospon, 118* a 120*; do. five twenties, registered, May and November, 116* a 117 ; do. do., 1802, coupon, da, 116* a 117 ; do. do., 1864, do. do., 116* a 117; do. do., 1866, do. do.. 117* .a 118* ; do. do., 1867, registered, January and July, 116* a 116* ; do. do., 1866, coupon, do., lid* a 116* ; do. do., 1867, do. do., 117* a 117* ; do. do., 1868, do. do., 117 a 117*; do. ten-forties, registered. 111* a 112; do. do., coupon, 112 a 112*; do. fives of 1881, registered, 114* a 116; do. da do., coupon, 114* a 116. SOUTHERN SECURITIES LOWER. The Southern State bonds were neglected in the general excitement of the day, and quotations were mostly nominal, the only dealings of note be ing In the Tennessees, which wentofT to 80*. The following were the closing quotadonB:? Tennes see, ex-coupon, 80* a 80* ; do., new, 80* a 80* ; Virginia, ex-coupon. 44 a 60; do., registered stock, old, 36 a 40; do., sixes, consolidated bonds, 64 a 66* ; do., sixes, deferred scrip, 14 a 14* ; Georgia sixes, 70 a 76; do. sevens, 88 a 90; North Carolina, ex coupon, 30 a 32; do. to North Carolina Railroad, 58 a 61 ; do. funding, i860, 10 a 24 ; da do., 1868, 17 a 20; do., new, 16 a 18; do., special (ax, 18 a 15; Missouri sues, 03* a 04; do.

STOCKS WEAK AND LOWER. ' The stock marke( was lower nnder (he depres sion exerted by the stringency in money, but prices offered a stubborn resistance, and only slowly gave way to the force directed against them. The day's decline ranged from one to two per cent for the general list, but In case of Pacific Mail, Western Union and Panama the damage Inflicted was as much aa 3 a 4 per cent. This resistance gave rise to a surmise that the cliques were buying at the decline either (o cover specnladve sales or as a preilmary to an expected reacdon In (be marke(. While money has been so strlngen( (o-day In (his cl(y It should no( be forgo(ten that the Western ( exchanges are In our favor, and that money Is rapidly coming here irom Chicago and Cincinnati, the chief money centres of the West and Southwest, and that the demand in connection wi(h (he April se(tlements has passed l(s climax. If (he "squeeze" in money and (be advance in gold have been (be final demons(ra(ion of (he cliques (herein preparatory to a complete reversal of tactics, It Is only wba( (be comparative strength of the stock market would Beem to imply with money worth 280 per cent per annum.

Cotton Decidedly Higher; Receipts at the Porta, 7,007 Bales-?Floar Firm Wheat and Corn Easier? Oats Steady Pork and Lard Firmer? Groceries Dull? Petroleum Steady? Naval Stores Easier? Whiskey Lower. Monday, March 31?0 P. M. The trade movement was rendered irregular, and values were unsettled in namerous instances to-day by the radical &nd rapid fluctuations in the gold premium. During 'Change hours the indi cator marked as high as 18 X per cent? a much higher point than had been reached for two or three years, and higher than there seemed any necessity for. It is true our importations hav e for some time been heavy, while the ex port movement has been exceedingly tardy. The chief articles of shipment? both flonr and grain? having been almost at a cempiete stand during the entire Winter. With the re sumption 0 i canal navigation, however, now hap pily near at hand, a more active movement in breadstnflb Is morally certain. With a continu ance of the active outflow of provisions and a fresh Impulse given to tne export movement In bread stuffB, so soon as the first Instalments from the West shall nave reached tidewater, it is to be hoped that the much-mooted "balance of trade" will be brought over to the right side and tho gold premium once more forced down to somewhere near its proper level. But these are only probabilities of the future, more er less remote, and accordingly tbeir Influence Is felt only In a slight degree; while the scarcity of breadstuffs ? the impossibility of any considerable increase of the export movement for some time to come, and the radical rise In the gold premium from day to day, are among the disagreea ble facts which wield a marked influence in the commercial world at the present time. Mercan tile matteri were considerably unsettled to-day, and comparatively little busings was done on 'Change, while oil 'Change U10 trade movement wax but moderate. Cotton w?? active and flrmer The produce exchange business was moderate, flour was quiet, but rather more flrmly heiil. Wheat was wanted to only a limited extent, and the sales were con. fluid to one or two cargoes at dccldedly lower price*. Corn and oats were quiet and the former was rather lower. Whiskey was dail sad prices favored the pur chaser. The movement in provisions was moderate, being checked by the extreme views of holders, nearly ail kinds being held decidedly higher, while tlie sales showed some appreciation. Lard was la lair request ana a further advance was estatdUbed. freights were quiet but Arm. there was very little avuil aiile room, while vessels fsr charter brought full rates. Th petroleum business provides ready and remunerative einpiuyinent lor ihe immense fleet engaged in the carry in u of this commodity, and atlarge number of vessels are now loading tor (treat Hritaia. Continental Europe ami elsewhere. Petroleum w?. (lull, but held with consider able firmness Naval stores were quiet, with prices fur ther favoring the buyer, Groceries were neglected and prices more or less nominal. Coma.?
