They choose the best soldiers disbanded on ac
count of the reduction of iheir own aimy, and
| the most üble officers, whose services are now
available in consequence of peace. It is just
a« if they had formed an auxiliary corps of
j elite of their veteran troops, aud transformed
them by a mere change of uniform into ibe
army of tbe Pope.
Le Nord adds : The conduct of the Cabinet
lof Vienna on this occasion is not merely dis

THE LATENT VIA OJ'EENSTOWN.
Lomxin Makkkis, Thursday, January 12.—
Breadstuff's closed firm. Sugar also firm.
Consols closed at m% tor account, and Mjj»a
98 v tor money. There were rumors of a pro
bable advance of t ), e bank rates, but so far there
has been no change.
LtvKßrooi., Thursday.—Sales of cotton to
day estimated at 8,(100"bales, including 2,51 m
bales for speculation and export. Previous
quotations are barely maintained. Bread
stuffs close dull—sales unimportant. Provi
sions close dull.
London money market.
Tbe Stock Exchange had exhibited a droop
ing tendency. On tbe 11th there was consul-,
erable heaviness, and consols were last quoted
at ttr>r»'a9Sti lor money, and lor ac
count. The other departments of the Stock
Exchange showed a tendency to depression.—
The demand for discount continued active,
but occasional transactions took place below
the Bank minimum. Attention was drawn t»
the fact that the bullion at the Hank of Eng
land was nearly £86,000 below the lowest
amount touched*throughout last year. This
is ascribed to the enormous importation and
the creation of the Indian securities. The
iuiptession had got abroad that tbe Hank won Id
probably soon raise its rate of discount. The
new Canadian loan closed at about J per cent.
premium. The applications for it were equal
to twenty-two millions sterling, nearly eight
times the amount needed.
Tbs Times'city article of last evening say:; :
"Consols to-dny declined ,'„ and several sales
were effected on the part of the public. At the
same time there is no inherent weakness in the
market from over supply of stock, and much
of tbe dullness would disappear if was
a prospect of gold arrivals during the next
few days, sufficient to meet the constantdrain
to India. Further sums continued tube with
drawn from ihe Bank, and no considerable re
ceipts are expected immediately either from
New York or Australia. Owing ts the sup
ply of money from dividends the demand for
discount has not been large, and at ihe Bank a
moderate amount of business bas also beeu
transacted. The railway market also expe
riences a li'tle heaviness, final prices of near
ly all the principal stocks being a fraction
lower tha/i yesterday. Consols closed at 95 : „ a
Wjj lor money, 96% fur account and 95*{aS5Jj
tor the new threes. The Hank has made no
change in its rate of discount.

Statistics op Uinitkd States Coinage.
The Directorof the Mint of the United States
at Philadelphia, James K. Snowden, Esq., in
his report to ilia Secretary of the Treasury
for tbe last fiscal year eudiug June .'loth, 1839,
states:
The amount of bullion received at the sever
al minting estabiislimentsof the United States
during the year was as follows : Gold, #29,563,
--.'Mlikl; silver, $7,330,709 67. Total deposits,
$36,999,990 au.
Th" coinage operations of the same period
were as follows: Gold coins, $17,290,077; flue
gold bars, % 13,11 3JBeB 70; silver coins, 08,187,
--4(H); silver bars, $(>1(>,231 47 ; cent coin*. $307,
--000. Total coinage, 17, comprised
in SL\S6tyUe) pieces of all denorainatiens of
coin.
This includes ££888,091 51 of re-deposits,
bars made at one Brand) Mint having b>en
sometimes coined at another ; deducting wind),
the amount of precious metals brought into
tbe Mint and its branches duriug the year was
$34,001,095 70.
The amount of gold—the production of the
mines of the United States—deposited during
the year was $27,213,3.57 15. The silver of do
mestic production was $273,167 47, the princi
pal proportion of which was derived from
the gold deposits, being silver parted from na
tivee;old. TheLakeSuperior region has yield
ed us about $30,000 in silver. The mines of
North Carolina have produced $23,000 of the
same metal.
The law of February 21, 15.,7, lias operated
effectually in retiring from circulation Span
ish and Mexican silver.
Siuce the passage of the act referred to the
Mint has received and melted Spanish and
Mexican fractions of a dollar to the amount
of #1.020,997, of which the value of 5>516,3i 5 was
deposited in exchange for cents of tbe new
issue. For this latter purpose, also, we have
received copper coins of the former issue to
the amount in value, by tale, of $95,241.
The charge on gold coinage, and the profits
on tbe coinage-of silver, and of cents, amount
ed 10 nearly $235,01 mi Tins sum shows the
amount of money derived from the coinage
operations of the mint and its brancbesduriug
the year.
The director notices the amount of gold dol
lars issued, SlT.tHiU.Mai. as too large for tbe de
mands of circulation, and recommends the re
call uf the thick dollars for re-coinage into
other denominations.
The amount of that coinage, issued from
li-49 to 1953, was #11,092,201. Few or none of
these piece* have been exported, but a consid
erable number must have been lost, aud some
melted down by jewelers. Assuminr, at tbe
utmost, that #1 l,oot,out) are extant, the loss on
the re-coinage of this amount wonld be $55,01*0.
Thb Union Meeting at Louisville, Ky.—
We have heretofore noticed the grand banquet'
in Louisville, un tbe 24th of January, given iv
honor of tbe "congregated wisdom" of four or
five States—the Legislatures of Kentucky and
Tennessee, a delegation from the Obio Legis
lature and ihe Slate officers of Indiana. The
Louisville Journal, In. a description of the
festival, says:
The great Western Slates—the heart of the
confederacy—Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and
Indiana—have spoken iv unmistakable terms;
a voice bas gone up from the hallowed graves
of Ashland and the Hermitage; faction has
been disarmed, and but one spirit will in fu
ture auimate the liepe men sf these Stales,and
the spirit will re-echo in thundering tones: —
'•The Union, it must and shall be preserved !"
The representative men of four great Suites
hav-e proclaimed their undying devotion 10 the
Constitution, as it was bequeathed to us by
our lathers, and have branded as a traitor
every man who would lay his impious hands
upon that ark of our civil and religious liber
ties.
We anticipated great results from this meet
ing, and now, as we write, with our soul still
tn rilled by tbe impassioued* eloquence and
stirred by the noble sentiments uttered, weare
the more fully convinced that it is well tbat
tbe great States met in council together, and
that patriotism so effectually disarmed fac
tion, and showed tbe loyalty of the great
Americauheart to the laws aad tbe Constitu
tion.
God grant that onr bopes may be realized,
and tbat the 24th of January may ever here
after be remembered as tbe day when tbe West
resolved that tbe discord between tbe North
aud South ebould be arrested, and that the an- '
gry waves of sectionalism should be allayed.

the Speaker of the House and Mr. Seddon, 01
Stafford, when the House adjourned ou Sat
urday last. He was authorized to state that
explanations, mutually satisfactory, had been
exchanged between these gentlemen, and nil
unkind expressions and feelings had been
withdrawn and removed, and the former kind
relations between these gentlemeu again re
stored.
Mr. Dickwall arose to a tiersonal expla
nation. He came here this morning with a
view to pressing the resolution he had made
on Saturday, for ihe discbarge of tbe commit
tee on the South Carolina Mission; but as it
might seem a reflection on the Speaker of the
House, he would not do so. It seemed to be
the opinion of many gentlemeu, that it would
also be construed into a reflection on tbe mem
bers of that committee. He believed wbeu he
offered his resolution merely that no good
would grow out of the committee, itnd he
need hardly say that in ofTeriugit he meant no
reflection on the Speaker or on any member
of thecommittee. While he still retained his
views as to the expediency of the committee,
he would relinquish his intention of pressing
the resolution in deference In the opiuionsof

The SnoK Dealers op Ltmn.—A corres
pondent of the New York Herald, writing
from Lynn, Mass., gives the following infor
mation :
Without the least possible motive or desire
to exaggerate, or to misrepresent the present
state of things, I confidently etate, deriving
my information from undonbted authority,
that the principal movers in tbe exciting meet
ings in this place en the subject oi tbe John
Brown raid, w «re those most largely indebted
to the South for their daily bread. As an in
stance of the extent to which some of these
crazy individuals have manifested their bit
ter actional spirit, I will state that on the day
that John Brown was hanged, Harrison New
hall, one of the richrst and most extensive
shoo manufacturers, and whose trade is ex
clusively with the South, tolled the bell of the
First Methodist Church nearly the entire day.
It would be unjust to individualize tbis case,
and I will mention the names ol bis coilaboru
teurs, all shoe manufacturers, who rally
around and support the actions of this man,
viz: N. E. Waldron, Isaac Newhall, Jr.,&
Co., Bancroft k Purrington, J. C. Vennard,
Paul Newhall & Sons, BiitTum ft Lovejoy
Brown ft Chase. W. P. Pavne, (.'. Johuso:», Jr.
&. sou, B. C. ft C. Buffnm, P. B. Kavve.ll ft Co.
The latter is a rabid Garrisonian. There are
others in the shoe trade equally as culpable in
ttiis traitorous work, but 1 merely send you
the names of the chief agitators of the " nig
ger" question.
Thk Mormuxs.—A Genoa, Carson Valley,
Utah Territory, correspondent cf the San
Francisco Herald, writes:
"Judge Oradlebangh left yesterday for Wash
ington, by way ol California; he is in pursuit
of his favorite purpose, the noblest that ever
actuated any man, tbe exteimination, at least
politically, of the Mormons. His plan is to
have tbe representation in the Utah Legisla.
ture in proportion to the legal vote, which is
to be ascertained by a commissioner appointed
for the purpose. The Judge informs me that
the entire Mormon population of Eastern
Utah, does not exceed 35,(H 0, of whom nt more
than B.IHKI are entitled to vote. The Geniile
population of Eastern Utah, he estimates at
U.MM voters, that of Western Utah, he pnts
down nt 3,1iu0 voters, and there is an absolute
certainty of an increase of fifteen or twenty,
thousand in ihe Spring. He hopes to outvote
the Mormons at the eiection next year. A Gen
tile Legislature once secured, tbe capital
would be removed to Eastern Utah, the Church
charter would be abolished, as well as that
powerful instrument of the devil, the Emigrant
Aid Association. Brigham Young would be
deprived of the power to marry and divorce at
pleasure, and an act would bepassed author
izing apostate Mor_ons to bring suit against
Brigham for their share of the Church fund,
the property of which amounts now to mil
lions ot dollars."

clever young actress who was recently elected
tbe captain of a military company in Dayton.
Ohio, is the wileof.Tohn Heeuan. The lady
was exceedingly anxious to accompany her
husband in bis professional trip across the
water, hut he objected to it for various rea
sons. She will sail for Englnud, however, so
as to j"in her husband at the earliest possible
moment after his tight with Say ere. Mrs. Hee
nnn has attained considerable celebrity in her
profession, and is said to possess much talent.
The foregoing paragraph was originally pub
lished in a New York paper.exteusively copied,
and by some contradicted. The paper alluded
to, says, on Saturday last:
We made tbe announcement originally upon
the authority of ihe lady herself, and have
since received a communication over her own
signature, in which she reiterates the state
ment thatsheis the wife of Mr. He-nan, and
further adds that she "is proud of bearing that
relation to the bravest man iv the world."—
Mrs. Heenau is now stopping at the house of
her father-in-law, at West Troy, and after
fulfilling a lew theatrical engagements this
winter, will leave for England in March, in

LOCAL MATTBRa.
Married under Prek>a*tien.. —Ob flbiurd«r '
night but, two aervauU belonging to a Wealthy .
gentleman, in Jefferson Ward, were to be mSr- ,
tied, and as the master bad given bis full con*
Bent, n large crowd ett etns assembled to wit*
neea the ceremony, and to partake of tbe
sumptuous least already prepared. After
waiting nntil tbe paHeace ef ail were asarly
threadbare the sable minister arrived, buried
to bis ears in snow-white linen, and announced
bie readiness to perform tbe ceremony.—
Soon thereafter tbs loving pair, dressed to
death, were ushered into tbe room, followed
by their attendants; and the preacher rising,
with a mammoth volume In hie had, proceed
ed to read tbe ceremony. Sambo and Dinah
were all attention, aad Use audience were aa
qn iet as death, unti l the preacher read, "if any
one has aught to ray wby these person* should
not be joined In wedlock, - ' etc., when he was
suddenly interrupted by aery on tbronter
circle of "I forbid tbe bans," the crowd at tbe
same rime opening an aisle through which
a woman hastily ruebed. "Fur what you
forbid de bans, hey I" "For dis reason,"
shouted tbe infuriated and wronged wo
man, at the same time exhibiting a young i
Sambo, aome few months old, which she ,
declared to be the effspring of tbe gay
Lothario's false promises. Finding tbat «the ,
woman could not be induced to withdraw ber
objections, the sooty parson hastily retired,
followed by some few of his personal friends,
and confusion and disappointment was to be
seen on every face. Suddenly, as if stung by
1 a hornet, a thought crossed the mind of Sam
bo, and acting upon it, tie dispatched a messen
ger lor his young master, inviting him to come
in and read the ceremony, declaring that he
bad no faith in marriage*-by negro preachers,
aud that he greatly preferred a white parson.
:In a short time the messenger returned with
the master, who performed tbe ceremony with
all tbe grace and dignity ef an older parson,
making the two but one, and saving from dis
appointment the scores of friends that bad as
sembled for congratulation and reasting.—
Whether the officiating clergyman bad license
for the occasion, we are not prepared to say;
but certain it is, that he understands the duties
and performs -.hem in admirable style.
Fail* Prettncts.— Oar notice on Saturday last
of the means resorted to by a lady to raise the
wind, has brought to light another female ope
rator, and may possibly lend to the detection
and punishment of some of tbis gang of vol
unteers who are robbing the charitable by so
liciting contributions upou tbe false pretence
of benevolence. The young lady who sought
aid for the Duval street Fair did not obtain it,
as we at first understood, simply because the
person npjlied to knew something of the ar
rangements of that church. That she did im
pose upon others, however, there seems to be
no doubt. We have before us a note from au
intelligent and oenevoleut friend, who says he
was called npon one day last week' by a
smootb->ongue woman to contribute to tbe
Female Orphan Asylum, aad that he readily
gave what he could spare. Tbe same woman
called ou another gentleman and received |IU
for the Asylum ; and as everybody seems dis
posed to aid the orphans, it la not at all im
probable that she made a handsome raise at
their expense. The President of The " Asylum
Board " says no collectors bare as yet been
appointed, and their collections will not be
commenced until spring; so tbat all who have
given the cunning beggar, have merely fur
nistied her that much to waste In dress, or,
possibly, in a worse manner. Impositions
uport the charitable are so frequent that we
advise onr readers ngainst giving to man, wo
man or child, for asyloms, funerals, churches,
fairs, or anything else, unless they know the
parties to whom they give; and, as a farther
means of protection, all benevolent associa
tions, when they appoint collector.-*, Ought to
furnish their names to the public. In the
meantime, let the late beggar be hnuteil upa.id
made to disgorge, or suffer the consequences.
Oas Statue.— At H o'clock to-day the people
of this city are invited to meet on the Dock,
near 2nd street, to receive and escort to Me
chanics' Institute Hall tbe marble statue,
prepared for the ladles of Virginia, and which
is said to be a beautiful work oi art. Tbe
Committee of Arrangements, on behalf of the
Directory, ate to meet at the Hall of the In
stitute at 10 o'clock, from which place they
will repair to the schooner Danville, where
tbs statue is now ready fordeliverv. We need
not .-ay a word to induce our readers to take
part in any act that has for its object
the honoring ot the memory of Henry
Clay. His life-long service iti behalf of
his country, bis statesmanship i.nd bis elo
quence, are but parts and parcels of tbe
history of this Union, and as such are known
to all'who read. Witb his death all party
prejudices were buried, aud meu of every
section joined with one accord in j.raisis of
his lofiy patriotism and devotion to our coun
try. Hnt whilst his history and hisfamenre
tbe possesions of every State ia the Confede
racy, fact that he was a Virginian by t.nih
renders his memory even more sacred to our
people, and will induce them to j. iv, as one
man, iv doing honor to him wbo dccl .red that
he would rather be right than be President.
The ira.*'>i«iffcß .Ifonurmrrif.—lt has been sug
gested, as considerable time will elapse betore
the remainirgstatnes are placed in position on
the above monument, tbat the authoritiesbav
ing it in charge would do well to preserve it
from any chance sf mutilation either by acci
dent or design, by causing it to be enclosed
around the base with a neat and cheap wood
en paiiing, which while it would not obstruct
the view either of the Pater Pa.!no., or his
revolutionary compatriots, or the monument
itself, would effectually preserve the latter
from such chance mutilation as the breaking
and chipping off of portions of the omnim-n
--tat part* of the steps, cornices, Ac, which to a
limited exrenlhasalready been done. Tbe plan
of the monument contemplates, when it shall
have been finally completed, the erectiou of a
magniflcent iron surrounding nt tbe cost ol
several thousands of dollars. It is neither
necessary, or would it be proper to place it iv
position now, whan a necessity would some
time or other occur rendering its temporary
removal at least requisite for tbe purpose ot
adding the statues contracted for by the State
with Mr. Randolph Rogers. If tbe fence is
added, as we have suggested, it would be as
well, previous to putting it up, to cause the
most exposed portions of ibegrantte compos
ing the work in question, m be thoroughly
washed and scrubbed dowu.
Hiring Free Nrgrots —The practice of bring
ing free negro children from ether court tie* to
this city and hiring them out as slaves, is one
that ought to be broken up, inasmuch as k
enables tbat class of person* to gain a limited
residence here, when they could do bo by no
other means. Free negroes have no right to
remain in Richmond more than sixty days,
bnleea granted permission by the Huctlags
Court: and no one has a right toempioy a free
negro who has not his proper register. If n
oitixen of Richmond has a free ucgro in his
employ, he has no right to give that negro a
pass ; and if the negro ban such a pass, and is
arrested, he is liable to punishment. Our citi
zens are deeply interested in the enforcement
of the law agaiust free negroes coming to the
city to reside, and should be particular never
to employ one of them improperly.
Serious Accident.— A. man named John Dab.
nby, employed in lnying stone in the Mar
shall street culvert, between ?th nnd Btb,met
wiih a serious accident yesterday morning.—
Whilst he was encaged in the pit, tbe "ten
ders" rolled up a large block of granite, aud
not supposing that any of the masons were in
the way, tumbled it over tbe embankment.—
Unfortunately for Dabney he happened to be
directlr in the line of the descent, and tbs
stone catching him in the fall, fractured tbs
bone in one of hi. legs, lie was promptly re*
moved to his residence, where Dr. F. Trent
was called in and rendered the necessary sur
gical aid. Dabney is said to be an industrious,
hard-working man, and having n family de
pendent upon him, will feel tbe less of time
the acc.deu t bas occasioned, severely.
A Btll Towtr is necessary for the lire depart.
ment, unless some other plan, better than tbs
one under which the Brigade is now acting,
can bs found ior giving them notice of tbe lo*
cation of dree. When the bell strikes one, the
llreineu know tbat it is somewhere in Jeffer
son Ward, but ac to its particular location
they can form ao idea, and if the ffre I* Inside
of n building, they may pass it by without
knowing it. Some of tbe firemen have sug
gested a "tower," but the great difficulty is to ,
find a central location for it. Tbe Brigade, i
thus far, has proved quite efficient, but tbe
difficulty oi knowing precisely where tbe fire [
Is when tbe alarm is given, to oae tbat ought!
to be remedied, if possible. . j
