FEM1WHL m COMMERCIAL. The New Board of Direction of the Pacific Mail Company. Report of the Financial Condition-Union Pacific Still Weak. GOLD STEADY. STOCKS GENERALLY FIRM. The Foreign Market Strong. MONEY EASY. Railroad Securities and Government Bonds in Good Demand. ACTION IN THE TREASURY. Wall Street, Wednesday, May 28?a P. M. On 'Change to-uay ' spot" cotton was dull and not quotably changed, while "futures'1 were in lair request at j*c. a 3-l6c. per lb. improvement. Fiour was anil and easier. Wheat was a sn*de off and corn was steady. THE FORBION MARKET. The London advices give no cauBe for disturb ance. American securities remain firm, and the financial sympathy, as expressed by values, re mains in perfect accord with the situation already reported. Consols and United States bonds arc steady and unchanged, and Erie holds its own at 48?b and 40. The French loan was active and ad vanced to 5>? per cent premium, certifying to a degree the confidence in the present French ad ministration. Rentes were steady at 66f. 15c. Con sols firm at 93#: 1807's, 04a; 10-40's, 88#: new lives, 89# a 89#. The bullion withdrawn from the Liauk of England to-day amounts to ?7",ooo. THE MONEY MARKET. There are bo important changes to be recorded Money commanded its lull price?to wit, 5 a 7 per cent lor call loans, and 7 a 9 per cent for commer cial paper. No exigencies operated to introduce any change in the prices already named, and it does not seem likely that any will occur until later in the seasen. Long loans are sought and by some parties favored, but the saspicions with reference to the anticipated gold corner deter active busi ness and unsettle calculations, so that It is well nigh impossible to take a prospective view of the market. Foreign exchange is unaltered and quoted with dulness at 108# a 108# for prime bankers' eo days sterling, and loo# a 109# for sight. The bul lion movement from London to the Continent does not yet seem to be determined. Hence no drain outside of the small amount named above is re ported, which it is at all probable will affect this market. GOLD STEADY?118# A 118#. The cliqne continue to play their rOle, but there is no new development and no fact on which to base a prediction. The market was dull. It opened at 118#, advanced #, declined # and afterwards re covered, closing at the opening price. The rates paid for carrying were from 1 to 6 per cent to "Hat" for borrowing. The Sub-Treasurer paid out to-dny $57,ooo on account of interest. The outstanding legal tenders amount to $356,000, 000. This is a reduction or $540,000 since yesterday. The Secretary of the Treasury has now all of the $44,000,000 which Secretary Rout well claimed as a reserve. The following tablo will show the fluctua tions of the market during the day:?

Advices from Washington state that the Treasury Department has decided to reduce the legal ten ders out standing to $350,000,000 bv the 1st of June.

The public mind was prepared yesterday for what has followeu to-day?namely, the reorganiza tion of the Pacific Mail Company. The election took piace at noon at the company's office, and resulted as follows151,602 votes were polled as representa tives of the stock, and the large majority showed its coutldence in the following ticket:?George H. Bradbury, T. W. Park, James D. Smith, John M. Burke, Charles J. Osborn, Russel Sage, George 8. Scott, George H. Palmer and Rufus Hatch. It is generally believed that Captain Bradbury will be elected the President of the new directory.

Union Pacific, which closed yesterday at 27%, opened at 25%, but recovered and maintained steadiness at an advance of 1 per cent, and towards the close called for 27%. C., C. and f.

THE SEW KK&IYIK QIILSCEVT. Afltelrs In the Public Departments?The New Chamberlain In Office?Rumored designation of Commissioner Char Ilclt?Odds and Endi. The City Hall and tbo various public depigments In the buildings adjacent thereto were not the proper places in which to look for news yesterday, as the closest repor torial Inquiry un l research tailed to develop anything or a startling nature. The fact Is that the seat of municipal government has been absolutely deserted since the c<m flriaatlon of thu Police Commissioners, 11 ml Police Head quarters In Mulberry street Is now Hie trysting place of the clans. A minor reached tho City llall, however, yes terday that Commissioner Charlie), nail resigned: hut tho report was extremely indefinite, and no one knew any thing definite concerning It The reported reason for h'is resignation, or tor his contemplated action in that re card, was that he lia-l ascertained bv Ins brief experi ence that tho duties of the position would engross too much 01 his time, but this was considered absurd as It in not at all likely that su shrewd and experienced a man as Oliver Charlick would seek or accept a position known to be onerous and exacting, it properly attended to. with ??ut knowing exactly the responsibility he was assuming. So one, therelore, believed the story. Among the prominent gentlemen who called upon tho Major yesterday wore Judge N?ah Davis. Commissioner 1 "r'h iin^i ' . <!i" '."''V- Superintendent MutseH.
