FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. Further Stringency and a Closing Relaxation in Money. The Kate en ftril Toiehei One Per Cent ? Bay and Declines to 1-16. THE GOLD SPECULATION HEAVY. The Market Quieter and the Premium Lower. DECLINE IN GOVERNMENT BONDS. Humored Intention of the Treasury to Be lieve the Money Market. The Report Denied, but Wall Street Still Expectant. 1 Stubborn Contest Between "Bulls" and "Bean" at the Stock Exchange. A 8HARP ADVANCE IN PRICES. Wall Street, 1 Tuesday, April x? o P. M. f On 'Change to-day Hpot cotton was neglected and ?tore or less nominal, while future attracted con siderable attention at a decline of *.c. a Xc. per pound. Flour continued quiet and unchanged. Wheat and corn were nominally steady. TUB EXPORTS OF THE WEEK. The total exports of domestic merchandise from the port of New York to foreign ports during the week ending April 1, 1873, were of the currency value of $6,301,280, making the total exports since January i, $64,387,898. In the statement of the imports yesterday an arithmetical error made them $10,000,000 too much. The right total Is $113,332,540. THE FOREIGN MARKET. The utble quotations from London show a re covery \n the markets there, consols having im proved X, while United States bonds are in some eases a trtte better, and in all cases firm. Erie ?bares were exceptionally weak and lower at 50%, hat this was before the receipt of the news of the closing reaction In the New York market. THE PUBLIC DEBT. Contrary to the prophecies of a few days since tee public debt statement of April 1 shows a reduc tion, the amount of reduction being $1, 644,06a. The total debt, less cash in the Treasury, is now $2,166,736,641. The coin in the Treasury is $69,637,376, and the currency $2,663,840. The out standing legal tender circulation is $358,609,047. THE MONETARY STRINGENCY. The monetary stringency continued as severe an ever, and the rate on call again ranged as high as ii per cent per annum, as a regularly quotable ?gnre, with one or two exceptional transactions at a? high as l per cent a day, equivalent to 365 per cent per annnm. The demand lasted nearly an hour alter three o'clock, and many accounts were not made up until Trinity was striking four ?'clock, to which hour the down-town banks, partly by courtesy and' partly through policy, have attended the time for depositors to make good their accounts. The stringency had this NEW FEATURE, however? that, whereas the demand continued 10 the last moment on Monday, at the highest rate, the supply increased late in the day, and the rate had fallen by a quarter to four o'clock to as low as 1-16 and interest. Much of this was attributed to rumors (bnt why, the connection is not exactly plain), that the Secretary of the Treasury had de cided to remit ten millions of greenbacks to New York, to be placed where they would "do most good." The rumor found a wide credence, although It was positively denied at the Sub-Tress- ury, ami had much to do with Imparting a firm tone to the closing temper of the stock market. THE RETURN OF MONEY te the city is already conspicuously important, and from Indices given in the case of two or three downtown banks the amount received the past two days has not been less than a million of dol lars The Secretary of the Treasury has called In for redemption all the remainder of the 3 per cents, amounting to $325,000, on which Interest will cease May 31, thuB cancelling and obliterating one ?f the many loans sprung of the civil war and its monetary necessities. Commercial paper was en tirely nominal. Foreign exchange was lower by an eighth at the counter, but continued de moralized, actual sales of prime sixty days ster ling being reported at 107*. a 107 THE RAILROAD BONDS. The pressure for money led to some disposition to sell the railroad bonds and also checked the bidding. The following is the record of the bids at the board as amended by prices in subsequent dealings, the April Interest being taken off In bonds marked "X":?

The Southern State bonds were neglected, but quotations underwent no essential change and the market was steady. The Virginia consols were quoted ex the January coupon. The follow ing were the closing quotations:?

GOLD LOWER? 117 X A 116%. The gold market was lower and feverlRti, bat the quotations were marked by narrower and less vio lent fluctuations. It was the general impresslen ?hat the clique had unloaded the greater part of their gold and in this belief the price declined to IMH after a fractional advance early In the day to ll'X. The theory most generally advanced In part explanation of the advance in gold Is the heavy Importation of foreign goods, particularly as the imports at this port are so far in excess of THE EXPORTS. But this influence is rather nominal than real and would be of little avail had not active, persist ent speculation been behind It to help It. Looking nt the figures we And that the imports at this port tfnee January i to date have been about $113,000,000 nod the ex worts trom this port s$4.ooo.ovo. Ai> cordtBg to the proportion wbltb rulea In the im port* and exports throughout the whole I'niU-il Htates these figures would give a total importa tion of lesB than $170,000,000 at all the port* and exports of $100,000,000. THE DISCRKI'ANOT bein? too small to account for so large an advance in the price of gold, especially as we have shipped during the same time about $14,000,000 of gold and silver.

' GOVERNMENTS TOWN. The government list was demoralized by the pressure for money and prices at times were down to what the street styled "ragged" fig-urea, the currency sixes breaking to 113* cash. The gen" eral list was off an average of fully one per cent at the close, when the following prices prevailed, the registered May and November bonds being quoted ex the May interest:? United States currency sixes, 113 a 113 J, ; do. do., 1881, registered, 116?* a 117*4 ; do. do. do., coupon, 118 a 11#; do. five twenties, registered, May and November (ex inter est), ill* a 112 '4 ; do. do., 1862, coupon, do., 116 a 116; do. do., 1864, do. do.. 115 a 116; do. do., 1865, do. do., 116 a 117 ; do. do., 1867, registered, January and July, 115 a 116}*; do. do., 1865, coupon, do., 114J* a 115*; do. do., 1867, do. do., 116* a 117; do. do., 1868, do. do., 116)* a 117 ; da ten-forties, registered. 111 a 111)4; do. do., coupon, 111)4 a 112; do. fives of 1881, registered, 114 a 114>* ; da do. do., coupon, 114 a 114}*. STOCKS ACTIVE AND STRONG. however fanciful and various the theories of the "bulls" in gold and money as to the extravagance of the country in its imports of foreign luxuries and its wasteful domestic life, the course of the stock market gave token of a widespread belief in the attractiveness of its wares at current quotations, the demand in sucU a monetary crisis being almost an anomaly. The market opened at about the levei of the lowest prices of Monday, and thenceforward for several hours the numbers of buyers and of sellers were so ovenly matched that while the money market was undergoing a recurrence of its severest spasms of stringency stocks stood steady and even firm. At length the "bulls" got the np porhand in this REMARKABLE 8TRDGOLB, and, beiDg helped by the tumors of intended Treasury interference in behalf of tue money market, and by the actual relaxation in money Itself toward the close of doailQgB therein, they capped the climax of their triumph by running up the wnole market to figures which recompensed them tor the task of abiding the severity of the monetary stringency. In the case of Harlem there was a temporary advance to 140 on the announce ment that the directors had sanctioned the lease to the New York Central on substantially the terms already recorded in the Herald, l'anama recovered to 112. The general list advanced one to three per cent, Pacific Mall closing at a rise to 60S ItlGIIEST AND lowest prices.

Business was fairly active, hut still irregular, to day ? the high gold premium tending to unsettle values to a considerable extent, notwithstanding the fact tliat few believed in the permanancy of the prevailing large discrepancy between the com parative values of gold and the currency. The extraordinary rise in the gold premium at this particular time Is very generally re garded as purely speculative, emanating from tbe tenacity witb wblch the Secretary of the Treasury clings to the conviction that he has authority to lssne "greenbacks to the ex- , tent of nearly $50,000,000, at his option? and 1 the apprehension that he will follow In the Hteps of his predecessor and mannfacture moner whenever he may choose so to do. In view of these facts it Is no wonder that there should be great Irregular- I lty in trade circles, or wherever the price of gold ( exerts the least influence. Cotton was still dnll j and nominal. At the Produce Exchange the mar kets were very quiet, and not even the high price of gold served to infuse vigor Into them. Flour ^ was exceedingly quiet.

Halo of the Famous Post Estate^ Over One Million Dollars Realised** Immense Crowds at the Bxehangq and Extraordinary Bidding Made to* Lota?Two Corner Lota Bringing $18,100 and SIN, 000? The Effect of the Sale on the General Market? A Tlgh^ Money Market Has No Effect oq Sales of Real Estate. Never before In the history ol selling real efrtatq In the city or New York was a property better oe more extensively advertised than was the sale ol the celebrated Post estate, which came under thq hammer of Messrs. Muller, Wtlkins & Co. yeetert day, at the Real Estate Exchange. The columns oi the various newspapers were teeming with the an. nouncements, and flaming posters, from which ha "who runs may read," of the forthcoming pubhq disposal, all tended to crowd the salesroom with one of the largest and richest assemblages ever congregated within Its walls. Punctually at twelve o'clock Mr. Peter P. Meyer, Mr. Fowler's chler factotum, called the audience tc order by means of ringing the gong. The veteran auctioneer, Mr. Adrian H. Muller, mounted the ros* trum, and his son read in a clear, loud voice tliq terms of the sale, dimensions of the property, Ac. Business began by offering the lot 2t>xl00f designated on the map as No. 102, on the nortl^ west corner of Riverside avenue and 1224 street* This property was started at $16,000, and rapidly run up to $18,100, when the bidding lagged, and this being the offer of Mr. Cyrus Clark he was da. clared to bo the purchaser. Thus was the lea broken, and the criterion ef prices nee ma to have been indicated by this "knock down." Lot 101. on the corner opposite,; was next put up and realized $18,ooo, the ostensibly purchaser lieln^ Mr. John 8. Vredenburg, but In reality a Pine street broker. For two hours tha sale progressed, and did not lose a jot of Un Inte. rest during its continuance. The best of iiumoi; prevailed throughout, and capitalists seemed t.a have suddenly awakened to the Idea thai thelc Colconda had been discovered, consisting of River side lots. They i herefore bid recklessly and with considerable extravagance. Numerous lessons are t? be deducted from tha groat sale Just closed. The result has been anx iously looked forward to as establishing permanent] values on west side property generally and Riveraloa Park lots in particular. Then we are admonished that a money market, be it ever so stringent, can have ho effect whatever in influencing the sale of real estate? vide the extravagant prices paid oat for purchases yesterday. It Is true that only ten per cent of the purchase money had to be deposited on the day of the sale, twenty per cent when the title la passed and sev enty per cent can remain on bond and mortgage* which Is considered as being very considerate* Yet at that rate about three hundred anu sixty thousand dollars cash will be realized, leaving about twice us much more nnder the amplest se curity, bringing seven per cent Interest for an in? dellnlte period to come ; providing, however, thaq all the lots as offered were sold to others besides the heirs. The total amount of the sale figures up< $i,o94,ioo and exceed? that of the Carman estate by about a quarter of a million. Buyers yesterday displayed a great deal of ex* cttement and evinced a determination to passes^ the particular spot selected for an Investments hence the lively competition. However, everybody is pleased, and let. us hope that this brilliant trans* action forms the avaiU courier of a busy Spring season, which Is badly needed, especially aa real es tate operations have been dragging through tha "slough of despoud" during the past four or llvg W06l?8. * The otner sales at the Exchange were entirety overshadowed by the Post estate. Fortunately, howetier, they were not or any great magnitude. To-day the celebrated Thompson estate, located at In wood, and which has been -mentioned belorei in this column, will come un again lor sale, andeq the direction oi Mr. Nathaniel Jarvls, Jr., referea. and Colonel Janies M. Miller, auctioneer. Judging from the prices obtalued lor the Post property thl* time-honored and eligible property will com mand a very high figure.
