The Outstanding Legal Tenders?Bank Shares?Railroad and Govern ment Bonds. A DULL DAY ON 'CHANGE. "Wat/i, Street, ) ?Wednesday. May 21?0 P. M. J On 'Change to-day cotton was in better demand, and, while lots on the "spot" ruled about steady, ?'Intures" were #c. a 3-l?c. per lb. dearer. Flour wan in fair demand and firm. Wheat was rather ?aaier, while corn was a shade firmer. THE FOREIGN MAKKET. The advices ltom London were encouraging, Inasmuch as they showed little or no change in the prices previously quoted. Consols were steady ?t ?;j# a 93#, while new fives advanced to 89.#. Erie was quoted at 48# a 49, a slight falling off, and the new French loan Improved # per cent, feeing quoted 3# per cent premium. The bonds of I WO advanced to 94 and ten-forties to 89#. No ehange is reported In the bank rate, but the rate of discount for three months' bills in open market is # below that of the bank. The bullion withdrawn to-day amounted to ?9,000. Rentes, M.30. Advices from Berlin are to the effect that the market is easy and unperturbed by any of the receding influences of the Austrian panic. In ex planation of the reasons which have induced the Bank of England to raise Its rate of discount an English financial writer says:? There were several causes which co-operated to make a higher rate indispensable; and these were of botn a regular ana u special nature. Among the regular causes wore the drains which at this season of the year carry off large quanti ties of specie to Scotland and Ireland. The peculiar conditions of the agricultural interests in the Bister kingdoms render the demand for gold less constant throughout the year, throwing the princi Eal strain upon the .Sprint; and Autumn, in addi Ion to these foreseen and In variable demands, there are just now a considerable number of ex traordinary calls for bullion and specie lor different parts of the Continent. The largest of t hese?which are also, of course, more or less anticipated and provided for?have their origin at the German mint, which is at the present moment engaged in turning out the new coinage, recently adopted by the Berlin Parliament. The only wonder is that, under such an unprecedented demand for English fold, the directors have been able to keep down the rate for upwards of six weeks. in elucidation of this theory we learn from the London Economist that France, while paying off large amounts of indemnity money, is steadily accumulating gold and slivei. Prance, by shrewd financial management, has caused London to feel largely the effects of the transfer ol gold to Ger many, and placed the Bank of England at the mercy of Bismarck and the German Treasury. TI1K MONET MAKKET. Exchange was a trifle weaker in consequcncc of Ihe decline in gold, also as a result of the cheering Advices from abroad. Money was likewise easier, the rate of interest ranging from 4 to 7 per ceut, but the bulk or transactions were at & a 6 per sent. Prime commercial paper found ready sale at I a 9 per cent discount. The supply of currency is abundant, and the prospects of its continuance arc tnclianged. GOLD 117# A 117*. Gold was lower, being in direct and inverse ratio to the changes in our securities in the foreign narket. Itumor has it that there is a large short interest in the market, but the lending rates for cash gold are not significant of any unusual prom inence of speculation on either side of the account. Sold opened at 117#, touched 117* in a few trans actions, declined to in1;, and left off at 117# a 117#. The fluctuations of gold at the Board were is follows:? 10 A. M 117# 12:01 P.

It was the dullest day in six or seven months, the stagnation prevailing in the absence of a leader being paiutully apparent to the luckless and impa tient operators lookiug Tor an active movement in either direction. The wider movement and the more active dealings were In I'aclflc Mail, which opened at 46%, touched 46, declined to 44% and leit off at 45%. The general market opened steady at last night's Improvement, but failed to retain it, the excess of dulness being followed by a slow decline, notwithstanding the otherwise favorable conditions of the market?among them easier money and a further diminution of the in fluences of the lorelgn market. Outside of Pacific Mall the changes in prices ranged from % to % per cent, the average being % per cent in favor of the bears. The feeling of the market tended to this side of speculation, but business was too limited to furnish a real test of the strength of the con tending elements. Erie declined in sympathy with the London quotatton, and in precisely the same proportion as Pacific Mail. Lackawanna was ex ceptionally strong, and advanced to 103%, a move ment which foreshadows another dividend. HIGHEST AND LOW KMT TRICES.

A Relic of the Harwell EttKto?The Pen alty of Bidding on Property and Re* fusing to Abide by tl?e Terms?The Great Kaat Side Sale To-Day? Large Suburban Sale. Only one sale toon place on 'Change yesterday, which consisted of seven lots belonging to the Harsea estate, sold on the 24th of April to Eugene Beebe, a real estate broker, for $35,260, which, however, he afterwards refused to take. Yester day these same lots, situated on the north side of Seventieth street, loo feet east of Eleventh avenue, were resold by Messrs. Muller, Wilkins & Co. to Mr. E. Van Valkeuburg for $33,300, leaving a deficit of $1,950, which Mr. Beebe will be called upon to make up, according to the original terms of the sale, be sides some expenses incurred by readvertlsing, auctioneers' fees, Ac. The other sales advertised to take place were postponed. The exciting topic of to-day is the extensive sale of east side property, to be held at noon on 'Change, by Messrs. A. J. Iilcecker, Son A Co., con sisting of 101 lots, located on the north side of Sev enty-flrst street, north and south side of Seventy second Btreet, between avenues A and B, south side of Seventy-third street, north side of Seventy third street, between avenue A and First avenue, and avenue B, water fronts, under direction of Messrs. Heury Clausen, Jr., and Adolph Levinger, trustees. The sale Is announced as absolute and without reserve, and the terms, lorty per cent cash and sixty per cent bond and mortgage. Just at this moment, when the first large parcel of east side property comes into the market, the bill establishing the Eastern Boulevard, the only good drive on Manhattan Island east of Firth ave nue, becomes a law, the Governor having signed the act on the 20th inst., which tends to enhance this laud very materially. Of the wafer front it Is useless to add any other than favorable comments; the rapid march oi commercial progress will soon absorb every iucn of ground on the East River, which the Hell Gate improvements are also hast ening. The eutire property is known us part of "Jones' Wood," and there Is no one in New York who is not well acquainted with this classic retreat, where manv a brilliant fite champCtre and Summer night's festival robbed the attendant or a night's rest. We can therefore predict for this sale a brilliant success, and the trustees of the es tate are ta be commended upon their determina tion of bringing this valuable laud into the market and by its disposal establishing the proper values. Mr. Jeremiah Johnsou. Jr., sold yesterday on the premises the lease tor six years of two lots south side of Thirty-ninth street, between Broadway and Sixth avenue, to J. 11. Stauabury, for $2,000; rent $1,000 per annum. Mr. John McClave sold at private sale yesterday two lots. '25x100, on the northeast corner of lloule vard and Eighty-first street, and one lot, 26x100, loo feet east of tiia same on Eighty-first street, for $43,000; also four lots between Seventh and Eighth avenues, on the north side of 131st street, with the four adjoining lots south side of 132d street, for $24,000.

Hennet was attended by tho largest number of peoplo ever gathered at an auc tion sale, sixteen cars, filled to the utmost ca pacity, left Hunter's Point over the new Garden City Railroad. On arrival at Hempstead hundreds of villagers flocked to the ground. The sale was commenced at half-past one and continued nntll every lot of the entire property, exeepiing the front, point, had been disposed of to sctual pur ch;isers. Ninety lots were sold for $31,219, ABOUT THE CITY HAIX. The Assembling of the OetMhntati After tbe Battle?How thf Victor* Were Congratulated?Swearing In the New Officials?1The Old and tbe Mow. Almost as soon as tbe Mayor's office was opened yesterday morning tbe crowd of low-priced poli ticians and hungry banters after morsels of politi cal pap began to swarm in, and wltb only slight in tervals of quiet, tbe offices were crowded all day. By noon tbere was present one of the noblest armies of patriots ever assembled, and tbere was Joy in the camp when, a few minutes later, several of tbe newly appointed Commissioners appeared. Then there was a joyous burst of excite ment, and every gentleman who happened to have a previous acquaintance with any of the new Commissioners was worried to death for in troductions to tbe coming rtQime of officers. It was such a benign blessing to be able to shake tbe band of a benevolent man who might (or might not) have a position or two to give away in tho next few weeks! it was positively awkcl to see the way some men clung to the Commission* era after being introduced. Police Commissioners Gardiner, Duryea and Rus sell qualified early in the day, aud were congratu lated upon their success by five or six hundred "friends," of whom they probably knew personally hair a dozen each. But then, "ytra know," it is tbe correct thing to Dawn upon a new official when be is an official, no matter how hard one may have worked to defeat that official when be was only a candidate, C'areBS biin, coax him. cling to him and tell him how ear nestly you hoped lor his success nnd how anxious you were lest he might be defeated, aud you make an awful impression on him?In a horn. Take, ror example, General Duryea, who has been instinct ively a soldier aud mot a politician. He never bel<r u civil office in nis Ule before, and yet his baud wan clasped t>y about a thousand men yesterday who are PROFESSED POLITICIANS, and who didn't care a cent about lilm a week ago. Such is success. Then, there was Hugh Gardiner* Of course be is a politician, and one of the smartest of them, and he came in lor an extra share, and bis right arm was doing duty all day as a town pump handle. One wan commenced to talk "at" him near the desk of the Mayor's private secretary, and talked him clear around the large office. Be never "tumbled" to himsell once, although the Commis sioner kept on moving away from him. Of course he was not proud, ami thought any place that was good enough lor tbe Commissioner to stand on was good enough for him also, and he kept "right close." Commissioner Russell, lortunately for him sell, did not happen to become so well known to the byatauders, aud was therefore not buzzed to death. Commissioners Laimlieer, of the Depart ment of Charities and.Correctlou, and Moulton, of the Tax Commission, were preseut also and were warmly admired, and took it in THK BKST-N ATUHKD H ANN BR Imaginable. George W. Mat soli. Judge John R. Brady, John Foley, James Kelly, Aldermen Morris, Cooper, Flanagan, Reillv and a host of other well known gentlemen called on the Mayor during tne day. Then there was an army of newly confirmed City Marshals who were waiting to be sworn in and receive their warrants, aud Colonel Jim Kerrigan was about also. It was not a little peculiar to think that the Colonel aud General Duryea, both of whom were present in the ante-room at one time, were years ago leading figures In the famous "Dead Kabbit" riots, the one leading one of the riotous factions and tbe otber commanding the troops called out to repress the malcontents. Commissioner Gardiner stated to the UltRALD reporter that he believed the Board of POLICE commissioners WOULD ORGANIZE on Monday next. There was comparatively little speculation concerning future appointments yes terday. It is generally conceded, however, that Mr. Matsell will be the Superintendent ol Police. The new Hoard of Fire Commissioners made a tour of inspection or tne various engine houses and establishments connected with the Depart ment yesterday. The newly appointed Fire Mar shal, Mr. George U. Sheldon, was this morning qualified before the Mayor, and at once assumed charge of his office. An office will be fitted up lor his use in Firemen's Hall. THE COMMISSIONERS OP DOCES who retire Horn office held a special meeting yes terday morning, at which all the members were present. The new Commissioners, Messrs. Wes tervelt, Gardner and Budd appeared and stated that they had been appointed aud duly confirmed as Commissioners of Docks and had taken tbe oath of office before the Mayor and were prepared to enter upon their duties. The new and the Fe ttriug Commissioners had then a conversation upon the affairs of the Department and the old Board adjourned sine die. The new Board then met for the purpose ol organizing, and Mr. Jacob A. Westervelt was elected President and Mr. Budd Treasurer. Messrs. Gardner and Budd were ap pointed the Executive and Auditing Committee. The Board then adjourned. The regular weekly meetings will be held on Thursdays, at three o'clock P. M. The Board of Aldermen meets at half-nast three o'clock this afternoon, but it is not known whether they will act on the remaining nominations or not. ATTEMPTED MR DEB IS BRIDGEPORT* Bridgeport, Conn., May 21, 1873. About twelve o'clock last night an affray oc curred in Sullivan's saloon, on Main street, be tween two young men named Jonn H. Leverty and Jatnes Dlnon, in which the latter received twopiB* tol shots in the head and escaped death only by a miracle. An old grudge between the two was the cause of the atfray. Dlnon was passing np the street in company with several others and stopped at Sullivan's saloon, where there was a crowd col lected. Leverty was present and had been drink ing, but was not intoxicated at the time. On seeing Dlnon enter the saloon Leverty pulled out a revolver and flred twice at him, at short range, and taking deliberate aim. The first shot passed through the fleshy part of Dlnon's right cheek, and the second strik ing the lorehead jnst above the corner of the right eye, passed over the eyebrow and came ont at the right temple without penetrating the skull. Leverty Immediately ran, bnt was hunted up by the police in less than an hour and locked up. Diuouls wounds were dressed, ami to-day (Wed nesday) he is about, and appeared in Court thla morning. Leverty was found hiding in a nencoop in a back yard, with his revolver in his hand, and owned up to the shooting, saying that he intended to kill Dlnon and hoped he hud. He was brought before Judge Thompson on a charge of assault With intent to kill, and manifested the utmost Indifference. When Dlnon appeared in Court Leverty hailed him with, "Hello, you look sick," which created a lau^h at the wounded man's expense. Leverty was held in |6uo bail, which, considering that the charge involves a penalty of states prison for a number of years, Is considered very low, and almost equivalent to allowing hlin to go free. It Is thought that the bail should have been mnch stronger, although the City Attorney only re quired that amount. Leverty Is a good-looking young fellow about twenty-three or twenty-four years of age, and Is brother of tne present street Commissioner of Bridgeport. He is American by birth, but of Irish descent, ami is from a respect able lanilly. Dinon is an ex-policeman, and la rather a low character. Up to noon to-day Leverty had been unable to procure injnds, and It is under stood that his family, although abundantly able to do ho, reiuse to furnish the requisite amount. The ail'air creates considerable excitement. COMPTROLLER'S KEGEIPT8. Comptroller Green reports the following amounta paid yesterday into the City Treasury, viz. HKcitrrKR or taxes.
