Toe London quotations came strong for oensoto, which rose ho. a S-iec. per coot on the non-altera tion of tha rate of discount of the Bank ef Eng land. the minimum of which many people con lectured would he advanced te a* least 4H per. cent at the weekly meeting of the directors this noon. United sta'tee bends stiffened at the same time, and the >?7's improved on eighth per oent. Subsequently, however, the tcn-lortins and new fives fell oir a a \ on the announcement that f THE BANS OF ENOLANP had lost ?040,000 in bullion during the past week, consols remaining steady. Erie shores were tower, at 61, and the new French loan was quiet at 6 per , cent premium. From Paris it was announced that the Bank 0/ France had gained 6,300,000 francs , during the week, whereupon rentes advanced to 66.85. From the Continent came the intelligence that the Banker Frankfort, following the lead or the Bank of Berlin had raised the discount rate to I per cent. e dilutee "le toyman caiiJ S v? r.'? ;,!*0NEY SnUNOKNT. ,, 't rfo' Vi, | The u\oney market was again exceedingly strip, gent, but sensibly easier as compared with its im-. mediately previous history. The rate on call ranged from 7 per cent coIb as the one exceptional extreme which, as on Wednesday, was touched for a moment only, to x per cent as the other, the final dealibga being at % per cent* In, other words, the rate [ot the use of money on call fluctuated from 8 per cent as the lowest to 180 per cent as the ' highest, ahd closed at 46 per cent. The average ?tte was about. per cent, equivalent to about 00 v cent per annum. y6 THE " 8ITUAT10N," I* embracing the attitude of the Treasury and tbo pfiux of money from the interior, was without new feature, except that the sudden departure for New York this afternoon of the Assistant Secre tary of the Treasury has been Interpreted to mean that the government has been induced, by the pro tracted stringency in money, to believe that its Interference would now be salutary. (Should Mr. Bawyer, the Assistant Secretary, reach the city in season to-night to be accessible to our reporter, the result of tlie interview will be given in an adjoin ing column.) Commercial paper, aa may he in ferred, was entirely nominal and rates were not even quoted, so rigidly inactive was the market under the pressure for moaaxoA call. The out standing extra greenbacks have been reduced 135,000 to -day, * f PAUL in PORBIGN HTCHANOB. ?' The continued stringency in money led to a fur ther and serious decline in foreign exchange, the prime drawers of sterling towering tlieir rates to 107* lor sixty day and 108J* for sight bills. Hat the former sold freely at 107 and .sight at 107 while caW? transfers were done at 108*. These rates tend to bring gold this way frtoin London, as may be seen from the fact that with sight sterling at 107*, tbe nounrt or sovereign Is worth only $4 78*, against $1 8 ?*, its par and standard at the Custom noose. As the cost or importation, in cluding freight and insurance'ls only about * per cent, there would be a net proflt of about one per . cent in ' . BUINCINU SFBC1S FROM LONDON to Now York. But as long a? money is worth all the way from CO to 366 per cent per anuum in New York, the importation is not likely to bo made, Any en thusiastic and patriotic American, win wishes "for once" to see a practical result of sterling ex change bclttg in favor or the Cnlted States b at liberty, however, to make tbe importatfon. The last time the exohantres were in this condition was during the lilack Friday week, when $4,ooo,oeo or gold came here tram England. The following were the closing rates Sterling, sixty days com mercial, 106# a 10?# ; do., good to prune bankers, 107 a 107* ! do., short sight, 107 * a 108*; Paris, sixty days, (.36, u a 6,30; do., short sight; 6.38* a ft. 20; Prussian thalers, 70,* a 71; Antwerp, 6.3ft* a &.ao; Switzerland, 6.3ft* a 6.30; Hamburg, 98* a M*; Amsterdam, 3## a 40; Frankfort, 40* a 40* ; Bremen, 03* a 04*. TBI BlUOrKAN MONET HAKBBT. In explanation of the non-advancement of the Bank of England rata to-day, despite toe action of the banks of Prussia and Frankfort, we have the following items from the London investors1 Guar (Manor March Mi lt is understood that no portion of tbe last French loan has ban employed in defraying the public ex Sendlture. The instalments or the loan paid in anuary amounted to m, 000,000. The Treasury already has In hand one-half of the remaining 1,600,000,000 due to Germany and tie remainder v will be covered by the monthly instalmeata of the lean paid by the public. The government, mere lore, will not require to contract any loan or enter Into any other financial operation on account of the war indemnity. The return or the Bank of Prussia for the past week shows an increase of ?204,460 in the bullion and or ?41,860 in the reserve of notes, with a falling oir of ?104,360 in the bills discounted. THE RAILROAD BONDS. There was a better inquiry for the railroad bonds, with a more active' market, Tbe chief feature was a sale af Fort Wayne firsts at 100*. These bonds have about rorty years to run, bat are otherwise only tbe ordinary first mortgage security, bearing seven per cent Interest. The fact ought to bo re membered by the Treasury Department against aa amendment or the Funding law* Morria and Essex firsts sold at 106.

With the subsequent snarp decline in foreign exchange there was a relapse to 117*, the market after one o'clock becoming quite feverish owing to a widespread Impression that the sodden visit of the Assistant Secretary ot the Treasury meant \ MORE GREENBACKS.

But according to the custom ol the bets in the street It It doubtful whether this sale has decided these wagers against the "bulls." How ever, the price goes down on the record for the public, and the dispute is left to the professionals 01 the street. After this early dip the market veered about and, becoming strong, advanoedmore than it had fallen, and assumed a firm but duller tone, holding the Improvement to the close, with onl^a brief Interruption about tbe time money was changing hands at the higher extreme ef the (lay, when a reaction ensned, which was followed by a recovery later in the afternoon.

For the purpose, however, ol avoiding "the great public Inconvenience" of wait ing ror any now designs, the existing dies will be temporarily used lor issuing the new coins of the prescribed weight without delay.

The ooins, If sup plied in proper quantities to the thousands or our cltiacns constantly travelling in Europe, will practi oally become monetary missionaries In the great worn o! uiiitylng the silver coinages or the Euro pean nations not yet in harmony with the metrioal system. A member inquired of Mr. RuorgleB If there was to be a fixed standard of international fineness? that is, ir the coins were to Uave their weight and fine ness stamped unoh them.

He called the year 1873 the beginning of a now era in coinage, aud said that it was due to the Chamber to say that it was accomplished by Its endeavors. Under this new system an American could bay this international coin In Paris and with It travel all over the world. The report was filed.
