Waxt, Street, ) TncRSDAT, April 10 ? c P. M. J tbb government gold sale. The bids for the government gold were twenty in number, calling for a total of $0,072,650, tne prices offered ranging irom 117.38 to 118.10. The $1,500,000 -was awarded at 118.13 a 118.1a. one house offered 118.13 lor the entire amount. THE FOREIGN MARKET. The Bank of England rate of discount was not advanced to-day at the meeting of the directors, despite a loss or ?548,000 in the bullion account of the past week. The former matter seems to have completely outweighed the latter as an influence upon the market, consols having been firm, while United States bonds were strong and higher, if not buoyant. Eric shares advanced to 51&. In Paris French rentes were higher at 50.30, notwithstand ing a decrease of '250,000 francs in tUo weekly bullion report of the l?ank of Fi ance. MONEY STRINGENT. Tne money market was irregular and unsettled, the earlv tendency having been toward ease and re lax it Hot, in consequence of which the rate on call declined to as low as 1-10 per cent for the two days to Saturday, or 1-S2 por uay, equivalent to about 11K per cent per annum. Indeed a good many loans were made at plain 7 per cent for the one day until to-morrow, where the borrowers vere willing to take the money for so short a time. THE EXPLANATION being that a number of bankers had funda to lend this afternoon which they were not sure they might not be called upon to pay out to-morrow, Good Friday not being a legal holiday. Those of the brokers who were willing to take the chance of getting the money to return these loans to morrow were cheaply accommodated, but the members of the Stock Exchange borrowed, as a general thlnsr, until Saturday. Everything went on Bwimmmgly until about a quarter to three o'clock, when the money market suddenly began to harden and tlio rate (for the two days) advanced to X, x and eventually to X per cent; at least, such was the report from THE EXCITED TIIRONQ gathered on the corner of Droad street and Ex change piace, where actual transactions were con ducted in whispers by the parties thereto in order to avoid the risk of prosecution lor violation of the usury laws, great consternation having been oc-? CA8ioned by the discovery that some forty or flfty subptrnas had been iBsued by the Grand Jury to Wall street bankers and banking-clerks, summon ing them to give their testimony before that body on the subject of these alleged infringements of the law. It was also reported that several large banking houses had announced that they would call in all their loans on Saturday in their dudgeon at being charged with implication in the uBurious proceedings referred to. The closing spasm can be explained, however, by the necessity the buyers Df the government gold were under this afternoon of preparing to take it out of the Treasury, Again, borrowers, seeing the tendency oi money early in the day, put off thfilr engagements to the last mo ment and coming upon the street in a crowd all at once enabled lenders to "squeeze '? high rates out of them. A "JUMP" IN FOREIGN EXCHANGE. Under the prospect of speedy relaxation in the money market to easy rates, the foreign exchanges suddenly hardened, particularly as the cable re ported a loss of specie lu both the Bank of England aid Bank of France, ami rates lor sterling ad vanced ? per cent, to 107T< and 108?{ lor prime bills, with the usual concession for actual business. The closing stringency in money was too late to alter or inodlty quotations for to-day's business, which left oiT as follows:? Sterling, sixty days, commercial, lo7 a 107'i ; do., good to prime bank ers', 107^ a 107 ; do., short sigh?, 108 X a 108 ; Parts, sixty days, 6.36^ a 5.30; do., short sight, 1.2 ox a 6.25; Prussian thalers, 70)i n 71; Ant werp, 6.35 a 6.30; Switzerland, 6.35 a 5.30; tiambnrg, 94 a 04% ; Amsterdam, S9,li a 39Ji; Fran ki ori, 40 X a 40J? ; Bremen, 94 a 94?;. GOLD 8TEAI1T? 1177< A 118.^. The gold market was firmer, but with a steadier tone, the advance In foreign exchange as an Influence upon the market being partially coun teracted by the g/jld sales against exhortations of government bonds, wnose negotiation abroad was facilitated by the higher rates for sterling. Under these circumstances the price, which touched W'% momentarily in the forenoon, advanced, to 118*4, fell back to 118 >4, and closed quiet at 11N*?.

Coming closely upon the heels of the account of the organization of two grand companies in Loudon to Invest In American railroad bonds we have the announcement this afternoon that the New York Central 6 per cent sterling loan for $lo,oo?,uoo has been placed in London at the equivalent of 106 per cent currency. It wilt be remembered that a total loan of $40,000,000 was authorized, the proceeds to be devoted to retiring the outstanding funded debt of $15,000,000, com prising bonds which are not secured by mortgage, and to the building of an additional double track between New York and Buffalo. Of this total $30,000,000 was to be In 7 per cent currency bondg and the remainder in 6 per cent* sterling bonds, the latter forming the loan negotiated in London. GOVERNMENTS BUOYANT. The advance in our bonds in London, the higher rates of foreign exchange and the firmness of the gold premium combined to impart additional Btrength to the government list, the '67's being buoyant at a rise to 119% a 119%.

Tlie merchandise murkets were generally steady to-day under a moderate movement at unchanged prices. The high rate of gold Iia? a tendency to re strict mercantile transactions of almost every character, the uncertainty with regard to the like lihood of the present premium being main tained, rendering merchants undecided as to their operations. On 'Change to-day there was very little change in the position of affairs, the markets being almost universally quiet at nominally unchanged values. Flour was quiet but Bteady. Wheat was a trifle more steady. Corn was easy. Oats was steady. Whiskey was firmer. Pork was strong. Lard was quiet at un changed prices. Uncoil and cut meats remained firm under a good inquiry.

The charge of Recorder Hackett to the Grand Jury 011 Monday last in beginning to be felt among the clique of money-lender*, against whom It was specially directed. Those worthies thought there was "nothing in It," or that any wcuk attempt that might be made to give It effect would be easily frustrated. Whatever may have been the basis of their calculations, tliey will surely find that they | "counted without their host." .Combinations be get combinations, and the "engineer is likely to be hoisted on his own petard." Several of the most | influential men on 'Change hailed with delight, the fresh opening afforded them by Recorder Hackett's charge to move upon the enemy's works. The .sinews of war are pretty evenly divided, as between tho contending parties, and It only remains to be seen upon >? tucli bide the law and the prophets will oe found to determine the result, litstrtct Attorney Phelps was waited upon yesterday by a member til one or the leading law firms In this city engaged In the prosecution on the part or certain capitalists against some cliques und combinations of al leged usurers, wnicii resulted in the immediate issuance of a large number of subpienax for wit nesses to appear before the Grand .lury ou Monday next. Mr. i'helps gave his assurance that the ut most, zeal would be exercised by his department to vindicate the long violated laws upon usury in presenting the cases, several by the "cer tain capitalists" aforesaid to the Grand Jury, and that tie would himself attend be lore the Grand Jury lor that purpose. The names of the nartles desig nated In the complaints of course cannot be given at present. They are charged with conspiring to deiraud by purchasing money and locking it up, for the purpose ol enabling them to .charge Illegal rates ollnterest on loans, contrary to the laws of the State on Usury. The excitement on 'Change when tlie deputies of the District Attorney with their bundles of subpoenas appeared, and dropped their missives here and there, in the ofllces where parties are wanted for Monday next, was Intense, and the conviction rapidly gained ground that punishment lor usury was not played out in New York alter all. It will require a little time yet he lore such olllclai action can be taken as will bring the whole of these fraudulent operations to light, but when once started rich developments may be anticipated. THE NEW YOUR AND LOXti ISLAND BRIDGE. Work Began Upon the Rival of the Kait River Bridge. The work on this bridge has been commenced under the direction of Mr. Isaac I). Coleman, engineer of the Company. The workmen have broken ground at Long Island City, on the line of Franklyn avenue, between Catharine and Crescent streets, for the foundation and retaining walls. This bridge commences on the New York side at Seventy-seventh street, and Third avenue, ruuning parallel with the said Severn v-seventU street on its south side, over the west channel of the East Ktver, across Blackwell's Island and thence over the east channel of said river to Kirst avenne, at Franklyn avenue, ou the Island side. This bridge, as located, will be 9,?>oo leet in lengt h, and have an elevation over the hast River so as to give a clear space of 136 feet abov? hitrh water. Its crossing upon the island will be between the Work house and the Insane Asylum. The spans over each ol the channels will i>e 7?) feet, with an ln ter-lrn mediate span over tho island of &oo feet. It will be 73 feet 8 ln< hes In width, accom modating a double-track raliwav, a carriage way of 'J4 feet and three footwaiks on an aggre gate width of SO feet. There will be two towers on the Island and one on each side of the river. These towers will be '20fi feet high ntiovo high water at the point of supporting the cables. The probable cost ol this great undertaking will be from three to five millions of dollars. The grade from Third av enue to the river and from the river to Crescent street, on the Islsftid side, will be 3 feet 8 Inches In 100 feet. The towers and anchor piers will have a sollt* rock loundation. The shortness of the spans over the channels and the island, which are secured by the towers on the Island, rou ders it more feasible and gives It greater advantages than anv other location, for a permanent and du rable bridge, than has as yet been nttmed. LIPE-SAVING APPARATD8 ON STEAMSHIP* Nkw Tor*, April 8, 1873. To ttik Enrroa of thk Hbkai.d:? My attention was called this day to .in article In your valuable paper on life rafts for steamers, also to an editorial on the same subject. Both articles would imply that the stesners out of this port were not supplied with life rafts. The law passed by the Forty-first Congress for the better preservation of life on t>oar(l steamers plying the waters of tho United States did not, compel owners or stcain vessels running on our bays, lakes and oceans to equip with lire ra:ts; but to my knowledge, by their own volition, the owners of steamers out of this port, and also other ports of the United States, afe supplying their boats with life rafts in addition to an extra supply ol lifeboats. Life raits are now on all tho steamers running on the Sound, and most all the steamers mining down the coast. Tho American line of aLeamshlps now building at Philadelphia ror the European trade will have ten large iiferalts on each steamer be sides a lull complement of lllehoats. Permit me to say It is a well known fact among mechanics connected with the shipping Interest that ail the European lines of steamers running to this port are miserably equipped In regard to life saving capacity, such us lifeboats, raits, cork mat tresses, lire-pttBemrs, Ac.

On Wednesday afternoon last the new steamship Villc da Havre, of the General Transatlantic Cora paly, plying between New York au<l Brest and Havre, arrived at this port, making a satisfactory initial trip. This vessel Is 420 feet extreme length, 43 feet breadth of beam, 30 feet 6 luches depth ol bold, and her grog* burden (French measurement) 3.20U tons. She lias tlirie full decks and her plates arc ol the thickness usually employed in steamers of this character. Six water-tight bulkheads are lu position and excellent worxmansliip Is visible throughout the snip. The motive power U of improved description, the engine being ol the direct-acting compound surface condensing principle, having two cy bin ders, 3S inches and so inches in diameter, with a stroke of piston of 4 feet 0 Inches. Steam is sup plied by six boilers, ami in this department, every improved agency that can possibly contribute to the requirements of speed and safety has been brought, into requisition. The accommodations of the Ville dn Havre are In every respect excellent. The main saloon, 62 leet long and 42 leet wide, to luxuriously lil ted. Three kinds of marble arc used lu linlsliing the panda a1 out the spacious room, and white and gold taste fully distributed, make it a gem. Then there are mirrors in abundance, and a piano nnd library aro noticed lu place. The lirst class staterooms, equal to an occupancy of Uto persons, are pleasantly fitted, while the second class rooms, capable ol accommodating 110 persons, are extremely com fortable. The saloon tor the latter passengers la nicely furnished and very spacious. Steerage pas sengers are not carried on the steamers of this Hue, though the Ville du Havre has room for soo >?! these, should It be necessary at any tirao to glvo them passage.

There is now lying at Harbeck's stores, Brooklyn, k a wooden screw steamer, bark rigged, which has occupied seventy-three days in the trip from Ant werp to this city. Hut an explanation will be found In the matter when it Is stated that her horse power Is merely twenty-five, and that steam Is only used when the vessel la becalmed or enter ing or ieaviug port. The name of tiita peculiar crait is the Finland, and her captain, Ltudbiuci, although a Russian, speaks excellent Kngllsh. In conversation with a Hkkald reporter yesterday lie stated "The Finland was built at Ile!singfor, lu Ktnlaiid, and her machinery was constructed in Sweden. The screw we can nnshlp at will; but the smokestack is always kept stauding and does not telescope, as would, perhaps, have been advantageous when wo ate not under steam. The following tire the principal dimensions of the ves sel:? Length, 130 feet; breadth of beam, 32 feet, ?and depth of hold, lc feet. We carry very llitiii coal, only about lorty tons, our consumption being about two tons a day. We carry an engineer and a stoker, and have sixteen hands In ail. ihe Fin land is 45a tons register, but can carry about a hundred tons more. We cannot fairly be called a steamer, our screw b^lng a mere auxiliary. Wa only steamed about six days on the voyage. Wo hail terrllic weather otr the Banks of Newfound land, wlwre we lost sails and drifted about lor weeks, l am told that this vessel is the llrst ol its kind which has ever entered this port. The town of Ai>o, in Finland, possesses lour vessels similar to tins one, engaged in the Baltic ami North Se* tiade. I nm hound to Hull, lu Kngland, assoou as discharged here. Good day, sir." About fifteen years :igo the bark Rover, of Bos ton, was fitted up In the fashion of the Finland f< t the Mediterranean trade, but the experiment proved a failure and the engines were removed.
