special of the 12th to the Cincinnati Commercial
It is ascertaired that the sale by Meesrs. Swift
& ('o., of ('lnciunati, of the iron-clads Orneat and
Catawba, to the government of P'er. has been
known to hecretary HSeward for some time, as
the negotiations for the sale were closed through
the sagercy of the Peruvian minister to this
government, and' he immediately informed Mr.
roward of the consummation of the contract.
Fronm this statement it is evident that the parties
interested never intended to run the vessels out
if the port of New Orleans without clearan e
lspers, as was stated in the dispatches from that
city. 'Lhe original bids for the purchase of the
nveels were regularly advertised fir by the navy
d-partmesnt, but were forfeited, afoer which
Musirs. sieft & Co. purchased them at their ap
praised value as authorized by law. The rcport
of the committee charged with the investigation
,f tls ma'ler will embrace these facts, and will
exculpate both the navy department and the pur.
chasers from all blame rn this matter, although it
will ucdoulbcdly include some very severe s:ric
rnrts regarding the course pursued by Becretary
t clles in other similar traneactions.
A peculiar circle was observed around the sun
at 10oston, last we k. which gave rise to much
speculation. One of the savans of the Hub ex
plains '.at its apperarance was attributable "to
the irferior diaphaniclty of the ciroamferential
adunabration, In photometric comparison with the
superjacent cirro-cumuli," and that "the pbe.
non.enon was merely hyarometric.' Boston is
satsfled with this explanation.
The New York Times says:
" There is every reason to expect that the
Southern negroes will vote in the next presiden

be carried by the Republicans, we may as well
bang up our harps on the willows. It concerns
us to gain a portion of the negro vote."

(In Monday night, as a gentleman, whose busi

car had started tp town, reached Eighth street,
rear St. Charles street, he perceived in the path
way. made by frequent footsteps, between the
grass which luxuriates uncropped on either side oif
the banquette, a coil, which at first he took to be
a sleeping dog or cat. Finding it necessary to
laces it on his way homeward, he approached it,
ahen be was surprised at it unfolding itself as a
huge moccasin snake, which lazlly made its
a ay to the running water in the gutter
before be could pick op a weapon to
strike it with. He followed it until it reached a
place of cncealment. Resuming his journey.
the gentleman cn reaching the spot where he had
first teen the noccasin, found another coil in his
way. He kicked it, when it also began to move,
hut slowly, dragging its wounded length along,
aid proved to be a conger eel, which the moccasin
had dragged out of the gutter and was about to
dcvt r piecemeal when interrupted by the be.
lated wayfarer. There is not a word of exag
geration in the foregoing, and it goes to prove
that the moccasin does not, like the boa or ana
