NEW YOBK, December 21.-There is an increased
demand for money to-day, comprising a few trans?
actions at 6 per cont.; the bulk of the new busi?
ness boing at 7. The supply of capital hero is
large, and there is no real excuse for stringency,
as Government is neither soiling gold nor drawing
upon (ho National Banks. The decline in gold
causes a feeling of distrust, which induces monej
lenders to put up the rate to 7 per cent., and the
Bears have been ondoavoring to absorb aa ranch a3
possible, so as to assist the downward movement..
Thore can bo no permanent stringency in tho
money market in the presont dullness of trade and
limited volume of speculation. In Wall street
money may be kept closo at 7 percent, for a fow
days by artificial means, but this state of affairs
cannot last long in the present financial situation.
Gold market closed at 133f, and the two extoenies
of to-day were . 134$ and 1334. Foreign exchange
continues dull, and there is a further decline iii
rates. The supply cf bankors' bills is in excess cf
the demand, and prime sterling is quoted at 108?@
109 for 00 day bills, and 109J@109| for short sight.
The decline m gold to-day exorcised a deoressing
influence at the Produce Excbange, and there was
a general decline in prices. In the merchandize
market there was a heavy feeling to realize and
lower prices would have to be accepted. Govern?
ment securities were heavy at the close of tho day.

MAXIMILIAN has issued a proclamation, or rather
manifesto, dated the 1st, from Orizaba. The fol?
lowing is the manifesto:
MEXICANS: Events of great magnitude, in con?
nection with the welfare of your country, which
were aggravated by domestic misfortunes, pro?
duced in our minds the conviction that we ought
to return to you the power which you had con?
ferred upon ?B, but our councils of Ministers and
State convoked oy us have deemed that the welfare
of Mexico- still demanded om* permanency in
power, and we have "considered it our duty to ac?
cede to their representations, at the time apprising
them of our intention to call together a national
congress, on the amplest and most liberal basis,
in which all parties are to participate, and this will
determine if the empire is to continue for the fu?
ture; and on its being so decided, to aid in the
formation of laws virtually necessary for the con?
solidation of the public institutions of the country.
To this end our councils are^now occupied in sub?
mitting to us proper measures, at the same tune,
in order that all parties may assent in comino to
an arrangement on that basis. In the meantime,
Mexicans, rely ng on all of yon without exclusion
of our political tendencies, we will do our utmost to
follow up with courage and constancy the task of
regeneration which you have confided to your

? RUSSIA ABD THE UNITED STATES.
A Washington dispatch, dated Monday, says the
President sent to the two Houses to-day a message
containing the translation of a letter, dated Au?
gust 17 last, addressed to him by his Majesty Al?
exander, Emperor of Bussia, in reply to a joint
resolution of Congress, approved on the 16th
March, 1866, relative to the attempted assassina?
tion of the Emperor, a certified copy of which was,
in compliance with the request of Congress, for
vrardod to his Majesty by the hands of Gustavus
V. Fox, late Assistant Secretary of the Navy. The
following is the letter:
His Majesty the Emperor of Eussia to Hie Presi?
dent oj the United States of America:
PBTSBHOF, 17th August, 1866. '
I have received from the hands of Mr. Fox the
resolution of the Congress of the United States ot.
America on the occasion of the Providential grace
of which 1 have been tho object. That mark of
sympathy has moved me sonsibly. It is not alone
personal.. It attests Once more the sentiments
that bind the American nation to that of Bussia.
The two peoples have no injuries to remember,
but only good relations under all circumstances.
Proofs of mutual benevolence are. added. These
cordial relations aro as conducive to then* interests
as to the good of civilization and humanity, and
answer the designs. of Divine Providence, whose
wil is peace and concord among'all nations. It
give3 me a lively ploasnro to soe thos-3 ties con?

parted my sentiments ta Mr. Fox. ; I pray'.yourte
be my interpreter to Congress and the American'
Paoplo whom it represents. Tell them how much
appreciate, and with me the whole of Bussia, the
testimonies of friendship they havo given me, and
and how happy I will bo to see the American na?

CHOLERA. IN CONSTANTINOPLE.
The following interesting letter lias been re?
coiled at the Departmont of State :
LEGATION OF TUE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, )
CONSTANTINOPLE, November 15,1SG6. J
Ron. W. IT. Seward, Secretary of State:
Sm : I regret to bo obliged ?o announce the.re
appearance of cholera at Constantinople.
It broke out a few days- since af Artoponi, a
neighboring village on tho Bosphorus, and out of
twa ve cases in that locality, up to this dato, eight
havo terminated fatally. Four caaos and two
deaths havo also occurred at the arsenal on the
Golden Horn, from whonce it extended itself, in
tho summer of 18G5, over the whole city. One
death of apoplctio cholera is roported from Bcbek.
The disease at present threatens to take an epi?
demic form. If it should become epidemical it
must be very fatal, as tho winter bore is generally
of a i-udo temperature, and much suffering exists
iu consequence among the population, tho great
bulk of which livo in miserable tenements, and arc
scantily clad and ill-provided with the ne :e3saries
of life.: It is to be hoped wc are not to witness a
repetition of tho horrors of 1865, when 50,000 people
were swept off in six weeks by this scourge of hu?

rHE PRESIDENT AND THE NORTH CAROLINA COM?
MISSIONERS-GEN. SICKLES OVERRULED.
We learn from tho Washington Republican, of
the 20th, tho following information :
The North CaroVna Co missioners had a long
interview with President Johnson yesterday, who
communicated to thom his dooision, both in re
? rd to tho order of Gen. Sickles and to the inter?
ference of the officers of the Freedmon's Bureau in
innuUing articles of indenturo in numerous cases
?vhere colored children had been bound out.
On both points ? tho President decided that the
sfficera were in error in interfering. Secretary
Stanton issued instructions to Gen. Sickles, direct?
us him to rescind bis orders prohibiting tho exe?
cution of judicial orders inflicting corporeal pun
shment. These instructions wore delivered to
jrov. Worth, to be handed to Gen. Sick'es.
General Howard also issuod and delivered to
governor Worth orders to his subordinate officers
;0 coase any interference with tho laws of North
Carolina when they bear equally upon the whites
md blacks. "
Judge Ruffin explained fully to General Howard
;he character of the law for binding out children. ;
Cf orphans are without any property for their sup?
port, they are bound out by order of the court;
but children having parents living cannot be ap?
prenticed except by the parents themselves. With
?his explanation, Gen. Howard did not hesitate to
ssue the orders desired by the North Carolina
Commissioners, who left last evening for home.
Our New York Letter.
[FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, Deeember 19.-Yesterday afternoon,
is yu ar "correspondent was comf ortably seated in
me of the Third avenue cars, with thoughts in
;ent upon his boarding house dinner to be par?
taken of at six o'clock, then near at hand, the car
suddenly came to a halt, and remaining in this
iialu quo position for an unusual length of time,
;ave evidence of the fact that something was
wrong. On stepping out on the platform I per?
ceived that there was confusion worse confounded,
caused by the stoppage of the fiftieth car ahead.
The noses of the horses of each car were close
upon the rear platform of the one in front, and the
line, like Macbeth's endless string of ghostly
kings, seeming to stretch out to the crack of doom.
Tho foremost car had been blockaded to make way
for the engines, which, in their turn, were making
the best of their way to tho great fire-the great
fire, meanwhile, was fast malting way with the
new Bowery Theatre. There was but little chance
of getting onward,- except at a snail's space, and
yet the passengers were loth to leave their seats;
for in this good city no mau likes rashly to sacri?
fice six cents which have been duly paid for
a ride of as many miles. My duty as your
faithful correspondent, however, demanded" the
double sacrifice of small change and hot din?
ner, and so behold me on on foot hurrying
onward to the scene of the conflagration.
It was a magnificent sight-the large building
wrapped in the fiercely raging flames, and the gal?
lant firemen battling in vam against the fiery
element. Anon the blaze is less bright-the air
grows denser, or rather the smoke does, as a tre?
mendous crash proclaims that the roof has fallen
im Soon, however, the smoke clears away, and
the victorious flame shoots upwards in sublime
grandeur, fighting up the city (for night had now
set in) for miles and miles around. Now the walla
reel and totter like a drunken giant, the heat is
intense, and the dense crowd of spectators move
off in a mass, foreseeing the approaching danger.
A rumbling sound, at first dull and indistinct,
Uko the far-off noise of a hu ge volcano-then louder,
louder, louder still-the huge walls reel to and
fro-the crowd looks on in breathless silence. See,
it comes. A crash, a din, a loud report as of a
thunderbolt, as it strikes a huge old forest oak,
and the Walls are crumbling in ruins. The total
loss, over and above insurance, is one hundred and
fifty thousand dollars. The theatre (with the ex?
ception of the Academy of Music) was the largest
in this city, and could seat comfortably four thou?
sand five hundred persons. Sic transit gloria
The snow storm of which I wrote in my last was
not a success. The snow fell heavily for several
hours, hut the rain fell still more heavily for sev?
eral hours more, and thus were tho hopes of the
sleigh-riders turned into disappointment as the
snow was transformed into slush-wherefore, on
the following day, instead of sleighing there was
slipping, and cursing and gnashing of teeth, and
India rubber shoes m demand, instead of sleighs.
On the same day that the gnashing of teeth was
going on, the snow commenced to fall again, but
the people were not to be deceived a second time,
and so regarded the light fall with heavy and con?
temptuous frowns, wherefore the clerk of the
weather grew angry and let out the sun, which
melted the snow still more, and made the streets
of slush more slushy. .
Dr. GUIDO FORMAN, a Sanitary Inspector of the
Board of Health, is under trial for official mal?
feasance-one LONARD, a highly respectable saus?
age manufacturer, having brought against him a
charge somewhat similar to that which CASSIUS
found fault with BRUTOS for bringing against Lu
crus PELLA. The sausage man accuses Dr. FUR
MAN of "taking bribes," or rather of offering to
take a bribe of three hundred dollars, in conside?
ration of which he would forget to report said
sausagemaker's premises as a nuisance. Other
charges of a like nature have been brought against
the honest doctor, who will have to disprove them
or take the consequences.
MAX MARBTZBK has brought au achura against
the Sunday Mercury for libel, laying tho damages
at twonty thousand dollars. One of the witnesses
testifies that the Mercury mau sent a message to
the Opera Sing that if the latter did not advertiso
in the Mercury ho would soon haye the pleasure
of reading articles therein that would ruin him
and his operatic performances at the Academy of
Music The articles were duly written, wherefore
the suit for libel now under trial at the Superior
?' T.je sermons on the "naked truth," which have'
boen preached against: the "Black Crook," and
made the pantomime draw still better, had such
an effect upon MARE: Surra, the moral manager of
the New York Theatre, that in order to make the
"Black Crook" draw less, he lias produced at his
(theatre the fairy spectacle of ' Cinderella," in
t?bjch the billet girls appear in costumes perhaps
more ree -iiavish than m the rival naughty
play. This is on the principle of tho trave ler on
a Mississippi River steamer, who, being mistaken
fer a Mininer of the Gospel, nd requested by
some pious ladies aboard to break a faro bank by
his persuasions, left them and retur od in an
hour from the tiger's den to tell thea that he hud
broken up the bank, omitting to add, however, by
what kind of persuasion the result had been
achioved. From the spectacle now on exhibition
at MASS SMITH'S temple of moraity,. wo learn
that the young ladies who attondod the ba:l to
which little Cinderella got a ticket of admission,
through the magic arts of tho goo 1 old fairy, were
clad in garments that were beautifully in want of

introduced, and read a communication in refer?
ence to tho publication of the Southern, Clo-istian
Advocate, formerly published in Charleston, now
in Macon, Ga., as the joint organ of tho South

communication was referred to a Committee of

A communication was read from Eev. A. H. BED?

which were referred to the Committee on Periodi?
During tho examination of character, which oc?

were made: A. W. MOOEE was located at his own
request; F. M. MOBGAN was granted a supernu?
merary relation; I. P. HUGHES was located for

The New York Herald publishes the following
telegram, dated Boston, December 17, in its issue
of Wednesday :
The removal of Adjutant-General Schouler bids
fair to create a sensation, it being certain now
that General Butler was the cause. The letLer
from the Governor of tho State announcing to
Adjutant-General Schouler bis removal, was dated
on Friday last, and gave a.3 a reason Schouler's
opposition to General Butler's nomination for
Congress. The letter, it is understood, will soon
be pubhshed, in connection with other matters
concerning, it is reported, certain profitable cotton
speculations while the General was in command at
Fortress Monroe. The decision that was arrived
at by the court martial upon these alleged specu?
lations, it is held, was reversed by the payment of
a heavy per centage of the profits. It is aUo al?
leged that official papora-were ante-dated after
General Butler's removal; but even the above
does not include all the charges upon tho black
list that has been prepared, and which is threat?
ened to be pubhshed. There is also included in
tho charges au allegation that a very large sum of
money was placed in a bank in Paris at the time
these speculations were in nrogress- The whole af?
fair wears a most damaging aspect, and the par?
ties who hold the official documents will not scru?
ple at all about making them public.
The Dayton (Ohio) Empire, of last week,
makes, editorially, the following statement:
But a few days since we were assured, by a very
respectable and intelligent gentleman, a citizen of
New Haven, Connecticut, that there are now bang?
ing on the walls of "Beast" Butler, at Lowell, two
magnificent pictures-"Christ on the Cross" and
"Mary at the Sepulchre," we think-painted, evi?
dently, by some great master, which are certf-nly
of $1000 value each. They were plundered from
one of the elegant mansions of New Orleans-the
mansion of one of the wealthiest gentlemen of fcht
South-which Butler confiscated and appropriated
to headquarters purposes, and as a receptacle of
stolen goods. Our informant was a correspondent
at New Orleans when these pictures were shipped,
and saw them on the vessel in the harbor.
VENTILATION OF THE FEDERAL CAPITOL.-The
ventilation of the Capitol at Washington is artifi?
cial. The air is forced into the apartments by im?
mense steam fans. The Scientific American says:
The fan for the Senate Chamber is 14 feet in
diameter, weighing 6536 pounds, and driven by a
16-horse engine, running from 30 to 60 revolutions
per minute. At tho lowest rate this delivers into
the Senate Chamber 30,000 cubic feet of air per
minute, being 20 cubic feet per minute for each
one of 1500 persons. The Hall of Representatives
has a fan 16 feet in diameter, weighing 9050
pounds, and driven by an engine of 30-horse
power. This fan can be run up to 80 turns per
minute, delivering 100,000 cubic feet of air per
minute, equal to entirely filling the hall every five
minutes. In whiter one-half this capacity is exer?
The other two fans, for the committee rooms,
offices and corridors, are each 14 feet in diameter,
weighing over 5000 pounds, and can be run to 60
revolutions. Driven each by a 16-horse power en?
In summer the air which is delivered to the
building is cooled and hydrated by coming in con?
tact with water faning in a shower, similar to the
means employed in low-pressure engines for con?
densing steam. The same principle, or something
similar, will probably be adopted lio moisten the
air used in winter for the double purposes of heat?
ing and ventilating.
We hope, with all this apparatus, Congress will
manage to keep cool hereafter.
DEATH OF A VENERABLE BARBI,-The doath of a
romarkablo rabbi of the Jewish Church of Germany
is announced. M. Frank was a native of Wilna,
born in the year 1758, so that he had attained his
ono hundred and eighth year. At that advanced '
period of fifo he was without any of tho infirmities
of old age; his hearing was perfect; he read with?
out spectacles, and took long walks np to the last
week of his fife.
THE ROYAL CHTLDEEN.-Prince Arthur having
now reached his sixteenth year, Queen Victoria has
dotormincd that he shall enter the: Boyal Military
Academy at Woolwich, as a gentleman cadet. The
Prince of Wales is a General in the army and
Colonel of the Tenth Hussars. Prince Alfred is a
Captain in tho navy; and it is intended that Prince
Arthur shall bo prepared for a commission in either
the engineers or artillery. The royal family will
thus be connected with nearly every branch of the
service. _.. . . _ ^ : *?

? Brief Dialogue between Common
Sense and a Dyspeptic.
COMMON SENSE. Is it possible for any human being
to enjoy life while suffering from indigestion ?
DYSPEPTIC. NO more than it is possible to be happy
on the rack. I speak from experience.
COMMON SENSE. Suppose, then, that a remedy for
this terrible complaint is offered, under the guarantee of
hundreds of individuals of high social standing, who
have tested the effect of the article bl their own cases, is
lt not unwise in any one afficted with the disease to neg?
lect giving it a trial?
DYSPEPTIC. Unquestionably. I admit the premise?.
What is the deduction ?
COMMON SENSE. Give heed. HO S TETTER'3 STOM?
ACH BITTERS is such a remedy. The evidence of its ef?
ficacy as a cure for dyspepsia is positivo, complete, un?
dented, and undeniable. Have you ever ascertained by
experiment whether it ls or is not tho infallible cure that
it is claimed to be? .
- DYSPEPTIC. I confess that I have not.
COMMON SENSE. Then you stand convicted of felly by
your own showing. If the same strong proofs that have
been advanced in favor of this great tonic had been sub?
mitted to you with regard to any business speculation,
you would have gone into it at once. BJ HEALTH of lesa
importance than the dollars and cents which no man can
enjoy without it?
DYSPEPTIC, No, no, no-a thousand times no. Com?
mon Sense, you are right. I will give the Bitters a
COMMON SEN SK. Do so, and I shall never moro have
reason to address you as a dyspe tic
