Flour was in fair re quest and steady. Wheat was firmer for prime, which is scarce. Corn was only In limited request and heavy. THE GOVERNMENT GOLD SALE. There were fiiteen bids for the government gold, calling for a total of $5,305,000 at prlceB ranging from lie.87* to 117.30. One firm bid 117.27* for the whole amount offered for Bale. The award of $1,600,000 was made at 117.27* a 117.30. TUB FOREIGN MARKET. ( The Eondon quotations up to one o'clock showed a recovery of * in consols from yesterday's de pression. The reason of the favorable change was not stated tn the cable despatches, but it was due probably to the fact that the action of the Bank of England had not disturbed the ease of the money market. Something of it was also causcti by the BETTER FEELING IN PARIS, French rentes having at one time advanced to 64.86, although they closed at a reaction to 54.62. In the afternoon, with the publication by the Hank ?f England of a los* of ?400,ooo in the bullion ac count for the past week, consols became unsettled and weak and lost the morning'n improvement. The new French loan was a trltle firmer on the an nouncement that the weekly report or the Hank of France exhibited a specie gain of 3,000,000 francs. United States bondB were steady, if not firm, the only exception being the new fives, which declined a further per cent. Erie shares were without essential variation Irom the previous day's quota tion. MONEY EASY. The money market opened with a more active Inquiry, and 7 per cent was the rate in the re newals and early business, a strong effort being made at the same tune to get the figure up to 7 per cent, gold, with possibly a successful result In a rew transactions. By half-past two o'clock the market tarned in favor of borrowers, and the rate fell to as low as 4 per cent before the close of banking Hours. The government gold sold to-day will help to render the banks still more capable of extending accommodation to borrowers, as the coin will ?well the reserves while tho liabilities will be re duced by as mnch national bank currency as can be turned into the Treasury in exchange for the gold. The features of the market for MERCANTILE PAPER were about as already noted. The demand con tinues active, and prime names are quoted 7 a 10 per cent dlncount for actual business, buyers' rates toeing 8 a is per cent and sellers' 7 a e per cent. It will be seen by our Albany despatches that the Usury bin, amended so as to expire at the end of two years, has brth the subject of active debate In Albany all day. The outstanding extra greenbacks have been reduced to $1,000,000; a further decrease of $68,000 since yesterday. Foreign exchange was duU and nominally steady on the basis of 108 .a 106 * for prime bankers' sixty day sterling and 100\ ft 100* tor sight bills. ?OLD ffTKADT?117* A 117*. The gold market was steady In the mala, although fluctuating frequently between the extremes of the day. which were 117* a 117*. The market opened atrong, owing to the development of great scarcity tn cash gold, which commanded as high as 1-16 per cent for its use, but arterward loaned at 7 per cent for carrying, the "squeeze" having been engineered toy the "bulls" In sheer despite of the eirort of the ??bears" at the beginning of business to make cash grold heavy.

THE RAILROAD PON DP. There waa a better demand lor the railroad toonda and a larger basiness at flrmer prices. Pittsburg seconds sold at 100 and Central Pacific firsts advanced to 103*.

BTOOK8 QUIET AMD IRREGULAR. The stock market was quiet and steady In its gen eral leatures, but Irregular upon a scrutiny of de tails. Thus Western Union. Rock Island, Ohios, Lake Shore and Central were heavy and lower, while Pacific Mail, O. C, and I. C.. Erie, Union Pa cific and Wabash were steady and firm. Union Pa cific was not afiected, at least unfavorably, by the decision of the United States Attorney General ex tending the retention of interest moneys on ac count of tolls for government transportation over the company's BRIDGE AT OMAIIA, liis opinion being that "under the act ef 1873 all compensation for services to the government by the said company upon its railroads of any kind la to be retained bo long as any interest in the United States by the company upon Its bonds remain un paid, and that the railroad of the company across the bridge is one of the railroads to which said act applies." In the miscellaneous list Panama ad vanced to 110, while CANTON after a rise to 110, fell to 101%. In explanation of the latter fluctuation 11 lS'Said that "Uncle Daniel'' had sold a number of calls at 104 a 105, which ex pired at a quarter to two o'clock this afternoon. The situation afforded "Jakey" a chance for the execution of a brilliant idea. With the sanction or Uncle Daniel he went into the Board and bid Can ton up to 110. The holders of the expiring calls were electrified at this rise, and notified their in tention to take the stock. As Boon as they had formally done so "Jakey" ceased bldaing, and the holders or the calls, in trying subsequently to sell the stock, found no better market for it than 101 a lox Result, a dead loss or 2a3percent, Instead or the prospective gain or & a o per cent. The re cent rise in Ohios is explained by a gain or $60,000 on the earnings of the montli or April. Toward the close Hannibal and St. Joseph dropped to 80%, closing at a little rally to 40. niGlIEST AND LOWEST TRICES.

Business continued slow to-day in most depart ments of trade, and we note some important cliauges. Cotton was still dull. Flour was Inquired for to some extent for export to Great lirltain, and several sales were made on the basis of lower prices. Wheat was very scarce, nnd old Bering was taken at some advance for ex port. The supply of tnis sort is about ex hausted, there being but one or two loads available. For other kinds the market waa quiet and steady. Corn was duli and heavy, though a fair aggregate business ras done at about yesterday's prices. Whiskey wa3 again decidedly higher, bnt not very active. The pork market was dull and prices were decide 1ly lower, both for lots on the spot and to arrive. Lard waa also decidedly lower and nearly nominal. Grain freights were stronger wider a fair demand for room. Groceries continued quiet, but were held with considerable firmness. Petroleum remained dull, but was nominally Heady. Spirits of turpentine was very quiet, but a shade firmer. Rosin was about steady. Corns.?The general market continued very quiet, but prices were nominally unchanged. We have only to note a sale o1 4,800 bag* Pantos, ex steamer Burnard. at 18*c.

There seems to be a little more activity in the market at present, Judging from th6 number of private negotiations effected during the week; bat at the Exchange very litflo attraction has been offered during the same period. The cause of this in all probability la that very little desirable real estate haB been pnt on sale to tempt purchasers with. On 'Change yesterday a large assemblage gath ered; but the day's business was spiritless and conducted without the display of the slightest en thusiasm. We have received the following par ticulars of private sales:? Mr. William II. Raynor sold eight lots on the east aide of Third avenue, between looth and loist streets, for $60,000. Mr. V. K.

The season of flowers is moet fitting for the celebration of the recurrence of periods marked in memory by pleasing thoughts. The ladles especially delight in them, and happiest are they when they have opportunity to display in public those intellectual qualities which lit well to the duties of the institutions of whioh they are largely members, devoted to semi-religious mis sions. Several of such affairs took place yesterday, and reports of them are given below: but the full height of the season is yet to come, and is fondlj expected.

Instructions of the Department lettea Of the 11th ult, I have the honor te report the result of the Investigation held by Mewrs. Beekwith sad Hovey. Local Inspectors of New London, Conn., Into the cause oi the disaster to the steamer Klin City, which occurred on the 8th of April, 1873, near'Tbfof'S Point, Long Inland $<>tind, 'iho inquiry took place at the office of the Local Board, at this port, as the witnesses were more acceseW ble than In Lous Inland or Connection*. From the srldonce adduced it appears that the ateamer Elin Cltr left New York at a quarter past twelve o'clock A. M., April H. 1873. After waiting some time for the fog to lift, passlnz through Hell Gate, made the North Brother and ftlker'sTilsnds and Whltsstone Point, and then run oi. an esst-southesst course for about seven minute*. With an ebb tide this iiltould have brought the steamer to Throg's Point, when her eourse changes to north-northeast, at a right angle froim her former course. At this point the government maintains a lighthouse and a fog alarm belli and, although it 1? one of the most intricate places te navigate in the Sound, and where vessels are very oiten fogbound, yet it is in chsrge of only one lighthouse keeper. Tha testi mony in r?uard to tbe ringing of the tog bell is very con flicting; bat It was admitted that the machinery for working It was defective, aad the sound emitted very faint. The Local Inspectors, in their report, attribute the cause of the aocident to the failure of the Captain and pilot to take a proper departure from Throg's Point, and to their running the steamer on. or near, her usual course, without taking soundings. These officers claim, and, I think, reasonably, that had the bell been properly rung they should have cleared the "Stepping stones;" hut while waiting tor the sound of the bell, the drift of the tide carried the steamer out of her course, and so deceived them. The Inspectors give the officers and crew great credit for their discipline and efficiency at the time of the acci dent In concluding their report, the Local Inspectors say??'"That afler a careful review oi tbe evidence elicited and duly considering all the various clrcum (tancea attending the disaster they find that the conduct of the Captain, Fred. J. Peek, and the pilot, Nathaniel Stevens, is somewhat censurable: but not to that extent which would warrant them In revoking or suspending their licenses." I folly concur In Uirir conclusion* The a mount of loss Is not deflnltely known, but will appear in the annual report Very respectfully, AUDISOM Low, Supervising Inspector.
