The Old Year.
t5Y F1IKBE MAT.
Twine yc a wreath of the holly leaves,
Of the holly berries red,
Willi loose cars from the golden sheaves
Tor the Old Year's honored head.
The Old Year, soon doth lie pass away
We shall see his face no more ;
He hath lost the sceptre of his sway
lie flies to the shadow shore.
And as alone he speedeth far,
Pursues him swift and near,
Leaning forth from his flying car,
The young impatient year.
Old Year, there are pleasant thoughts with thee,
And thy f;imiliar face,
Like the face of a parting friend, do we
- Iu the deepening distance trace.
You have given u-5 gifts with a lavish hand,
Y'ou scattered the summer flowers,
You strewed with its gems the laughing land,
And vestured the vernal bowers.
And the autumn's mellow fruits were thine,
And the autumn's golden sheaves,
And the purple clusters of the vine,
And the gorgeous sunset eves.
And what, though your parting path be red
"With the death of leaves and flower,
Though stark they rustle beneath your tread
As you fly through the forest bowers :
Still, still dost thou crown the happy earth
With gems of crystal bright,
And leavest her dancing in Christmas mirth
Like a young bride robed in white.
The steamboat Knickerbocker, from Albany for
New York, ran foul of a raft or spar in the Hudson
river, at an early hour on Monday morning, and went
down soon after. Twenty-two horses were drowned.
All her passengers were safely landed near reeks
kill. When the powder magazine, by exploding, creates
a vacum in the atmosphere, the windows of the adja
cent houses are not, as most people would be led to
expect, forced inwards, but the air within their rooms
breaks the glass outwards in rushing to restore the
equilibrium of the atmosphere.
Though but eighteen years have elapsed since the
first vessel wholly propelled by steam crossed the At
lantic, now there are fourteen lines of steamers, com
prising forty-eight vessels plying between Europe and
the United States. Out of these forty-eight steamers
but twelve are of American construction. The fureign
companies have lost four of their steamers, and we
the same number.
Jews. The N. Y. Express says the number of
Jews in the United States exceeds 250,000, and in the
State of New York there are about forty thousand, of
whom nearly seven-eighths reside in the Empire
Affairs of Mr. McKay. The Post says, tho first
meeting of the creditors of Donald McKay (the cele
brated ship builder) took place on Monday, and was
numerously attended. C. T. Hubbard, Wm. Page,
and" B. M. Clark were chosen assignees almost unan

In the neighborhood of Cincinnati there are more
than two thousand acres in grapes. The profits av
erage, taking one year with another, about JjS00 per
acre. Much, of course depends on management.
The cost of planting ranges from $100 to $800 per
acre. Expenses with ordinary land need not exceed
$150 per acre. When trenching machines come into
use, land clear of stones, the cost of planting will be
materially reduced. Better profits are made on grapes
toll in the market than ou those used for wine.
The subscription by the friends of James King of
William, whose death at the hands of Casey called for
a second re-organization of the San Francises Vigil
ance Committee, amounts to $32,000, which has been
placed in the hands of trustees for investment. Iu
addition to this, it is stated that the King family still
retain a third interest in the Bulletin, which yields
tiieui about $1,000 a month profit. Mrs. King has
also been presented with a house valued at three
I The Rochester Democrat has a communication,
I giving an account of a thrilling incident at Niagara
j Falls, on Sunday. At five o'clock P. M., a number
j of persons were on Luna Island, and among them a
vunjuu ot uvs ai piay. une oi mem leu into me riv
er, thirty or forty feet above the falls. His screams
drew the attention of others near by, among rvhom
was a person named P. P. Jackson, who was only fif
teen feet above the falls. He at once jumped into the
the water, and maintained his footing until the boy
came down against him, when he seized tlie boy and
threw him on shore.
Arrest of hie Great French Railroad Rob
eer. Charles Carpentier, the principal operator in
the great five million French Railroad fraud, wa3 ar
rested on Thursday of last week. He was arrested
about ten miles back of Xewburgh, New York, by a
countryman, who recognised him from a published
description of his appearance, and brought to this city.
He now lies in the Eldridge street jail. A large
amount of the embezzled funds has also been recover-
? ed and passed over to Mr. Belmont. The property
was jound secreted in the coal cellar of the tenement
house, 197 West 16th street
Important Legal Opinions. Attorney General
y ashing has rendered decisions upon the following
important points :
1. Shipmasters in foreign ports are subject to the
requisition of the Consul to take on board and carry
to the United States distressed mariners, but not sea
men or other persons accused of crimes, and to be
transportel to the United States for prosecution.
r Ofhcers and crews of the public ships of the
United States are not entitled to salvage, civil or mil
itary, as of complete legal right. The allowance of
taivage, civil or military, in such cases, like the al
lowance of prize money on captures, is against public
Pcy, and ought to be abolished in the sea service,
o1 ?as IocS ago in the land service,

above ami " 17: , .r oi tne
wm De weU for Consuls to take notice of the
Wwuiairiy oi me last point decided, j
Some Consuls are ignorant enough to suppose that '
merchantmen carry the police jurisdiction of the Uni
ted States into foreign waters ; and this abused pre
tension was the cause of Mr. Consul Keenan's late
capers at Hongkong.- S. F. Bulletin.
Island of Tristan D'Acunilv. Advices received
in England from Simon's Bay, Cape of Good Hope,
dated on April 18, say :The Frolic, 12, Nolleth, is in
Table Bay, having a few days since arrived from the
lbianu 01 xristan v Acunha, it Having been errone
ously supposed that the Islanders (the descendants
of the corporal of artillery and two or three men-of-
war s men, who had volunteered to remain in. 1824,
when the British left) had become too numerous for
the means of subsistence afforded by the Island.
There were seventy-two persons on the island, about
half of whom wish to be removed, with their families,
and some of their property, cattle, &c. The wive3 of
the first settlers were negresses from St. Helena, but
the present generation are well-grown good-looking
people, with scarcely any sign of black blood in their
veins. The corporal died about three years ago, and
some thirty of his children and grand children mi
grated, with his widow, to the United States.
Horrors of tiie Coolie Trade. An out-break
took place tn the 3d August, among the Coolies who
were on board the Dutch ship Banca, then lying at
Macao. This was carrying nearly 400 Coolies to Ha
vana, ami had put into Macao for supplies of water.
J lie Captain had been warned that mischiet was
brewing. In preparation for such a contingency as
a rising of the Coolies, the small arms of the ship
were placed on the poop, and two guns were loaded
with grape and pointed forward. About nine o'clock
at night the disturbance commenced, and the crew
took retugc on the poop, llie captain nrst nred a
shot or two over-head ; but as that had no effect, and
the Coolies advanced to tho assault, armed with bc-

a volley Ot small arms and the discharge 01 the big
guns followed. This drove the Coolies below, whence
flames sneedilv burst through the after hatch, and
shnrtlv tho vpssftl was in n. blaze fort and aft.
The mainmast soon fell with a crash then the fore
and mizzen, and about midnight the magazine ex
ploded. Of the Europeans, the Captain, Gunner and
Steward are missing, together with 220 to 235 of tlie
it is estimated that zu,iJUU,uuu pounds ot rags
are annually consumed in the U. S. for paper, or an
amount larger than the consumption of England and
France combined, and that of the total linjiortations
annually, nearly two thirds are supplied by Italy.
We give below the substance of news received from
Europe by late mails.
Great Britain. Parliament lias been further
prorogued till December 1G.
Aurclia bath, a ltoman lnumvin, has been engag
gcd by the Italian Emancipation Committee to lecture
throughout great Britain to st'r up enthusiasm for
France. French correspondence gives prominence
to accounts of the Imperial gayeties at Compiegne,
where the Emperor is enjoying hunting by day and
fancy balls at night in the style and costume of Louis
Numerous arrests have recently taken place in the
Department of the Deux Zones, where a secret society
of a dangerous description has been discovered. The
society was organized by tens and hundreds, all train
ed to obey orders for the destruction of the rich.
Sixty persons were arrested; but the peasants, armed
with pitchforks, attacked the escort, and rescued the
prisoners. New arrests have also been made in the
Faubourg St. Antoine, within a few days.
The report of the bank of France is rather more fa
vorable, although the Bank has adopted yet more
stringent measures, and will not make any advance
at present on railway shares or rentes. Commercial
Bills having GO days to run arc always objected to,
so that virtually the term is reduced to 4o days.
lhe Tans Journal des Debats contains the an
nounccment, that the pretensions raised by Russia
with regard to the Isle of Serpents have been aban-
doned. Russia has given way, and the Island will
again become a possession of Turkey.
Letters from Paris on the subject of the finan
cial crisis are less unfavorable. The bullion of the
bank is said to be increasing, both in Paris and at
the branches, and it is added that some of the deal
ers who have lately drawn five franc pieces from the
provinces for the purpose of melting, are depositing
the bars at the bank for an advance of notes upon
Spain. Accounts lrom iYiadrid speaic ot a new
ministerial crisis, the object being to throw Narvaez
overboard, and restore the Absolutists. The Marquis
of Viluma, the head of the Absolutist party, is spoken
of as the coming man, but he, in the meantime,
declines the responsibility.
It is said that O'Donnell is put in command of the
Household Guard as a check upon Navaez. Count
Benkendoiff, the Russian Envoy, has had a cordial
reception from the Queen.
A daughter has been born to the Duchess of Mont-
The important intelligence comes from Madrid, Oct.
12tk, of the fall of O'Donnell and restoration of Nar
vaez to power. O'Donnell has resigned, and with
him all his colleagues. The Queen has accepted their
Naples. Respecting the proposed demonstration
against Naples, the only reliable information is given
by the Nord of Brussels, in the shape of a letter from
Vienna, of date September 2G, stating that the Aus
trian representatives at Taris and London had re
ceived urgent instructions from their Governments to
induce the Western Powers to adjourn the exceut ion
of their maratime demonstration, and to await the
result of the Austrian envoy's (Gen. Martini's) mis
sion to Naples. The letter adds that there, is every
reason to believe that the Western Powers will show
sufficient consideration for Austria, and accede to her
Miscellany. It is said the coronation of the Czar
will cost Russia a sum equal to $5,000,000.
Louis Napoleon drives a pair of American horses
that cost him $3000.
Scattering Pearls. At Moscow, on the day of
the coronation ana at the moment when the cortege
was entering the Kremlin, a magnificent pearl neck
lace, worn by Lady Granville, broke, and the pearls,
each of which was of great value, were scattered at
her feet- Her ladyship did not evince the slightest
emotion, but proceeded on her way, leaving behind
her the remnants of an ornament which would be a
fortune to any one less wealthy than the lady of the
Tiie Greatest Dinner. A letter from St. Peters
burg gives the following bill of fare of the grand din
ner given by the Czar to 200,000 peasants at the
gates of Moscojv: 210 sheep, roajted whole ; 4S0
tarts, 28,800 gallons of broth, "4S0 dishes of jelly,
7,200 fowls, 1,000 turkeys, 1,000 ducks, 24,000
loaves of white bread, 9,600 loaves of brown bread,
9,600 hams, 46,000 apples, 46,000 pears, 46,000
plums, 4,000 palls of beer, 4,000 pails of mea 2,800
pails of white and red wine. At the head cf every
iaDie tnere was a sheep roasted whole, the horns gut,
ana the nose bppd with silver. All the fruits v:ere
hung upon Christmas.
