FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. The Monetary Stringency Gradually Abating. The Rate on Call Ranges from 1*4 a Day Down to 6 Per Cent Per Annum. A Buoyant Market at the Stock Exchange. ANOTHER FAILURE AND EARLY ALARM. A Reaction, a Rally and an Eventual Advance to Ante-Panic Prices. A Bold Demonstration by the Clique in Gold. Running lip the Premium in Face of Specie Shipments from London. Smart Rise in Government Bonds? Advance in foreign Exchange? Decline in Ten nessee*? The Week's Imports of Dry Goods. Wall Street, 1 Friday, April 18?6 P. M. f On 'Change to-day cotton was in better demand and firmer. Flour continued dull and prices wore easier. Wheat was quiet and unchanged, while corn ,waB active and firmer. TITE DRY GOODS IMPORTS. The total imports of loreign dry goods at the port of New York during the past week were of the specie value of $3,3U0,09!?. the amount mar keted daring the same period being $2,003,385. The amount sent Into warehouse was $1,280,057, W<-' the withdrawals were $972,393. THE FOREIGN MARKET. It will be seen by our special cable despatches that a hundred thousand pounds gold, or ubont half a million dollars, was taken out of the Hank of ?England to-day for shipment to New York, at tracted hither by the recent fall In the foreign ex changes. Our correspondent reports an appre hension existing in the market that this shipment . will lead to the raising of the discount rate *1 ' THE BANK Of ENGLAND, particularly if it should be followed by farther ex ports. Some of the Wall street despatches repre sent the amount coming as nearly a million dollars. It is quite unlikely, of course, that any further Important shipments will be made, for the reason that, with tho current demand up?n London from Germany for specie in the grad ual settlement of the French indemnity, the Dank will raise the rate of discount and keep the money ?thome. But the simple fact of a movement of specie of any extent in favor of New York justifies the recent sentiments ?r the Herald as to the abnormal character or the rise in gold. All our extravagances have not been sufficient to prevent the rates of exchange falling se ax to bring SPECIE FKOM LONDON to New York. We shall not go Into the argument of stringent money and like explanations. The fact is that while speculators have been running op gold en the plea of "the drain of the precious metals'' to Europe, our monetary relations with the Old World are such that the specie tide Is in our favor. At least It Is not against us, and will not be for many a long day, if wc may judge from the present tenor of the lorelgn exchanges. The London quotations do not confirm the re ported apprehension of a rise in 'he hank rate, lor consols have been steady, while United states ; bonds were strong all day and closed at an ad vance of % per cent. Erie shares were steady and other securities about as last quoted. ADVANCE IN FOKEION EXCHANGE. The farther relaxation in the money market and the more confluent anticipation of easier rates In the Immediate future started a brisk inquiry for Mils on Europe, especially as It was the eve of steamer day. Under this demand rates advanced per rent for sterling, prime sight bills rising to 108%, the market closlug firin on the Intelligence #f tTie coming dT" specie from London. The following shows the revised standard rates:? Sterling, sixty days, commercial, 106% a 107"V; do., good to prime bankers', 107% a 1075$; do., short sight, 10s% a loss ; Paris, sixty days, ?.36% a 5.81%; do., short sight, 6.27% a 5.26 %; Prussian thalers, 70% a 71; Antwerp. 5.35 a 5.30; Switzerland, 5.35 a 5.30; Hamburg, 93% a 04%; Amsterdam^ 39 % a 40; Frankfort. 40% a 40% ; Bre men, 03% a 04%. MONEY EASIER. The money market was appreciably easier, j although In the early forenoon the apprehensions j of lenders were excited afresh by the failure of the ' bouse of Lockwood A Co., and borrowers, in their j eagerness to secure accommodations, snbmltted to the terms then demanded, loaus being made at 3-16 j ? % per ceat at the start, the latter consideration being paid, however, mostly In the way of "turn ing" stocks. An the day wore on the rate fell off j to 1-16 dnd then to 7, gold. an<Lsome transactions : subsequent to three o'clock were reported at 6 a 7 j per cent. Accounts were pretty well closed by the regular hour, and the sidewalk market was aguln only slimly attended, the recent ; disposition or the street being strongly In favor of j confining transactions in money to the regular place inside the Stock Exchange. | GOLD STRONG ? 117% A 118%. The inconsistency of the movement In gold was ?eidom so welt Illustrated as during to-day. Not withstanding the announcement of the movement 1 of specie from London to New York and the cable reports or the buoyancy of our bonds in the foreign market, the gold clique deliberately raised the quo tation from 117% tell8>?, their efforts being assisted to some extent by the buylug of the importers in connection with purchases of foreign exchange for Saturday's steamers. We have already re corded the feeling of certain London speculators as to the advance in gold, their views Inducing them to go "short" of the market. To-day despatches were received thrsugh the cable reporting the atalpment of heavy consignments of May -coupons, and ordering the gold sold against them. These several adverse influences caused a reaction to 117%, but the clique went In again and marked the price back to lls^. The course of the market is shown in the following table 10 A.

The Southern State bonds were heavy and lower, at least as far as the tone of the market was dis closed in the few sales that took place. Tennessees sold at 77 % and Mlssouns at 93^. The new South Carolina* were exceptionally firm, the April bonds bringing 20.

GOVERNMENTS RAM r ANT. The advance in goki, the relaxation in money, the rise iu the London quotations of American securities and the general recuperation of good feeling In the street combined to cause a sharp rise in the government list, the '67's, for instance, jumping one per cent to 119% ? or two per cent since yesterday morning, while the sixes of '81, which were offered at 119 Thursday night, arc now held at 120%. The improvement was distributed throughout the list in striking but less extensive proportions, the advance in gold serving very naturally to check the effect upon THE CURRENCY SIXES of the easier terms for money, but failing to pre vent an advance of a % per cent, which was the smallest change In the list. The following were the closing prices:? United States currency sixes, 113*4 a 114; do. sixes, 1881, registered, 116 a 116),; do. do. do., coupon, 120% a 120, 1 ^ ; do. five-twenties, registered, May and November, 113 a 113%; no. do., 1862, coupon, do., 117% a 118; do. do., 1864, do. do., 117% a 118; do. do., 1865, do., do., HO.1* a 119% ; do. sixty-sevens, registered, January and July, 116% a 116%; do. do., 1865, coupon, do., 117% a 117%; do. do., 1867, do. do., 119% a 119% ; do. do., 1868, do. do., 117 a 118; do. ten-forties, registered, 111 a 111%; do. do., coupon, 113 a 113%; do. lives of 1881, registered, 113% bid ; do. do. do., coupon, 115 bid. STOCKS STRONG AND BUOYANT. The recovery of the stock market progressed to-day even more rapidly than the most sanguine "bull'' could have fancied possible, In view of the depression and alarm so lately prevailing. Indeed, the remarkable fall and succeeding rise of the past few days are all in keeping with the oft-boasted ability of American institutions to "dlvo deeper, swim further and come up drier" than any other rival concerns. The applecart which was upset so badly only a few days ago is now standing in its normal position, loaded with a new supply of vendible commodities. The brokers were on 'Cbaugc bright and early this forenoon, and set about business with the ntmost alacrity under the stimulus of heavy "orders" from buyers; confident that tlie "panic" had brought the market DOWN TO "UARD-PAN." But all this early confidence wan temporarily dissipated by the announcement of the failure of LocKwood A Co., aud buyers became anxiously eager to sell, the market receding suddenly one or two per cent. The nature of the failure being soon afterward revealed and the losses being mostly outside the Board, the confident feeling re turned, and prices once more surged up ward, but the market remained feverish until alter the relaxation in money, when a grand final rush took everything up to a still higher stage of prices, the figures reached In the closing buoyancy being either up to or l a 2 per cent higher than those from which the " panic" started on Wednesday morning. The table below will tell its tale In Illustration of these fitcts, while n an adjoining column the reader will find a rurther narrative of the excitement in the street, ?nd the result of un "interview" with the sus pended Arm of Lockwood A Co.

I!nslno?s continued dull In almost all the ramifi cations of trade to-day, tue Wall street crisis occa sioning considerable apprehension lest ita in fluence become potent eYcrywhere, and the exer clBe of the utmost caution on the part of the mer cantile community seems to have become an ur gent necessity in order to work off any possible difficulty as a result of the locking up or currency and the consequent panic in stocks. As yet the ef fect is seen only In the shrinking of trade and the hcsitancy to assume any new obligations on the part ol the business public ; and It Is to be hoped that no serious trouble will grow out of Wall street difficulties. Still It Is th e part of wisdom, while hoping for the best, to prepare for the worst; hence the extreme caution which characterizes most of the mercantile transactions at tfce present time. On 'Change to-day cotton was quiet, flaur was dull, low er and nominal. Wheat remained dull, but without noteworthy change. Corn was fairly active and firmer. Oats were comparatively quiet.
