every dollar of its bonds, under the law
|sed by the Legislature of Pennsylva
The court decided that tho company
jay the tax, and that the coupons
sc paid without deducting the tax.
>t>a.ble Success of thc Rebels-Effect
on the Spanish-Chilian Contest.
WASHINGTON, November 22.-Tte Go?
vernment has received a despatch from
Callao, dated October 28, from which the
following is taken:
Respecting the revolution in Peru, I have
now to report somewhat of definite pro?
gress. The revolutionists havo abandoned
their camp in Pisco, and advanced as far
as the valley of Lnrini, on their march
upon lima. I cannot ascertain tho exact
number of their forces; but, from all ac?
counts, shc-uld judge it to bc about 10,000.
The army of the Government has already
marched out to meet them, under the
command of President Pezet, in person.
There was a rumor, yesterday, of a skir?
mish at Lurini, between the advance
guards, although nothing yet is positively
known. The decisive battle may, perhaps,
be taking placo at this very moment. I
think it is the prevailing impression that
the revolutionists will be victorious. In
the event of their success, it is thought
that Teni will break off her present rela?
tions with Spain, and declare in favor of
Gov. Morton, of Indiana, in his message
to the Legislature of that State, on tho
occasion of its special session, says:
Thc subject of suffrage is, by the
National Constitution, expressly referred
to thc determination of tho several States,
and it cannot be taken from them without
a violation of tho letter and spirit of that
instrument. But without stopping to dis?
cuss theories or questions of constitu?
tional law, and leaving them out of view,
it would, in my opinion, be unwise to make
the work of reconstruction depend upon a
condition of such doubtful utility as negro
suffrage. It is a fact so manifest that it
should not bc called in question by any,
that a people who are just emerging from
the barbarism of slavery arc not qualified
to become a part of our political system,
and take part, not only in the government
of themselves and their neighbors, but of
thc whole United States.
So far from believing that negro suffrage
is a remedy for all of our national iiis, I
doubt whether it is a remedy for any, and
rather believe that its enforcement by
Congress would be more likely to subject
the negro to a merciless persecution than
to confer upon him any substantial benefit.
By some it is thought that suffrage is
already cheap enough in this country; and
the immediate transfer of more than half
a million of men from thc bonds of
slavery, with all the ignorance and degra?
dation* upon them which the slavery of
generations upon Southern fields has pro?
duced, would be a declaration to thc world
that thc exercise of American suffrage in?
volves no intellectual or moral qualifica?
tions, and that there is no difference
between an American freeman and an
American slave, which may not be removed
by a mere act of Congress.
Frais.-Between two and three o'clock
Saturday afternoon, a fire occurred at the
residence of Mr. E. J. Kinsman, North-east
corner of Smith and Montague street-9,
caused by some defect in the chimney. A
small portion only of tho roof was burnt,
the greatest damage to tho building being
from the flood o' water poured upon it.
The building belonged to Mr. Thos. B.
Another fire broke ont about six o'clock
Sunday evening, on thc second floor of the
largo three story warehouse on Kerr's
wharf, well known for several years past
as Kinloch's hay and grain store. The
building had been lately leased to Mr. P.
Fogarty, and was undergoing repairs. It
is believed that the fire was the work of an
incendiary. The whole of tho interior was
burned, and also the adjoining warehouse
occupied by T. TuDper A Sons. We could
not learn thc whole extent of the damage
last evening. Messrs. Tnpper A Sons, it
is reported, hat" a large t tock on hand.
The building belonged to the Napier
estate.-CJiarleston Courier, 27?A.
EBLKARED.-Capt. J. G. Ryan, Confede?
rate States army, who has been confined in
tho military prison hero for some time
past, was yesterday released. Thc caso of
Capt. Ryan has been a peculiarly hard
one. He was originally arrested on suspi?
cion of being John H. Surratt, one of tho
assassins of President Lincoln, and taken
to Washington. Alter it was ascertained
that lie was not the man, ho was sent
here, but has been kept in entire igno?
rance of what was the charge against him.

Ryan belonged to Col. Armstead's cavalry

of scouts at the time of thc surrender. He

ATTACK ON MATAMORAS.- Tho attack ?nd
repulse of tho Republicans, on the 35th
ultimo, waa a rory small affair. General
Escobodo, c<iuuu?u?iu(( tho It?publics,
army, consisting of 3,000 to 4,000 mon, had
given directions for a complete roconnois
sanco of the onemy's position on that day,
but no order for an attack. One of his
officers, however, commanding a small
body of Americans, not fully understand?
ing the orders, directed his men to make
an assault at a particular point, which
they did with the greatest success, cap?
turing the Imperial works and guns; but,
not being supported, they had to with?
draw. The besiegers maintained their po?
sition around the city for several days
During tho progress of tho siege, Browns?
ville, which is on the Texas side of tho Bio
Grande, directly opposite Matamoras, was
filled with people from the latter place,
who fled to escape the expected attack.
American soldiers stood on the river bank
and cheered the Republicans opposite, and
for this an Importal gun-boat fired on the
American side. General Weitzel has or?
dered an investigation of this affair. Gene?
ral Weitzel, at thc request of General
Essobedo, and in the interest of humanity,
sent over the river tents for the latter's
wounded, and many of them were trans?
ported to Brownsville, and received the
attention of the United States army sur?
geons there. Tho Imperialists professed
to have discovered a henions plot to sur?
render tho city, and assassinate General
Mejia, among the officers of a party of
about 400 Americans at Matamoras, in tho
Imperial service, known as Contra gue?
rillas. Two of these officers were court
martialed and sentenced to be shot. One
of them was executed, but the other
escaped. The Matamoras papers charge
that this plot was purely American, that
$55,000 was to have been paid to the con?
spirators for its execution, and that a
portion of the money had been paid and
that the remainder was in Brownsville.
As hcrotoforo reported, the Republicans
disappeared from before Matamoras some
days ago. A New Orleans despatch gives
as a reason their reception of information
that the Imperialists were moving from
Monterey to attack them in tho rear.
There are also Now Orleans rumors that
Bagdad, at the mouth of thc Rio Grande,
is besieged by the Republicans, and that a
French naval officer has made an unsuc?
cessful demand on General Weitzel for the
surrender of the Imperial vessel captured
bv the Republicans and taken to Browns?
General Frederick Steele, lately com?
manding the United States forces in thc
Western district of Texas, which includes
our Rio Grande frontier has been super?
seded by General Weitzel, commander of
the Twenty-fifth corps. It was understood
in Texas that the cause of General Steele's
removal was the allegation that he was
on too intimate terms and in sympathy
with the Imperial officers of the Mexican
