Hw It AIIWIn lliislni" In New York.
A New Yorl: sneciul'dntctl SMtli, says :
Clear uinl bracing weather to-day 1ms
produced more hopeful symptoms among
the wick horses, but there lias been but a
slight Increase in the number of vehicles
in the streets, The great majority of the
horses in use look weak and dispirited,
while a green discharge Hows from the
nostrils.
The damagement of business grows more
verious eaeli day. Meats, tlsh and other
perishable articles can not bo distributed,
musing heavy pecuniary losses, lletail
grocers and others have advanced prices.
Merchandise arriving since last week re
mains on the docks, and sonic of it has
been Injured by the rains. Warehouses
are crammed full and can not disgorge to
make room for fresh freight. Vessels that
.should have sailed several days ago remain
idle Nearly one million bushels of grain
which should have been shipped on Satu
day's steamers for Europe, has not yet nr
rived In the city, owing to the epidemic
lirouglwut the State, and it is likely it
will be delayed several days longer. The
otton and provision markets, also butter,
lieesu and hop markets, are visibly all'ect
ed. There is very little business done in
any line except in future delivery. Droves
of 'fresh horses arriving are instantly seiz
ed with the disease.
The number of deaths in !Nev York and
Urooklyn up to to-night from the horse
distemper, is estimated at 150. Several
Hostlers have been taken sick suddenly,
Out probably from overwork, There are
also doubtful reports of an epidemic lung
fover among other domestic animals.
BETTING OX THE ELECTION.
Hon Itels Ilmi on ilie Itillvrciit States.
The New York 'Times of the 30th, re
ports the pool sales at Johnson's Saloon,
Broadway and USth St., New York. After
oo bets could be had on New York for
f inint against Greeley the Times says :
Mr. Johnson then commenced selling
pools for Urst choice of the three competi
tors Havemeyer, O'Brien and Lawrence.
The sporting men backed O'Brien to start
with, and made him slightly, the favorite,
the pools selling $130 O'Brien, S120 Have
aieyer, $00 Lawrence. On the eighth pool
Havemever and O'Brien sold for even
money, &500 each, Lawrence fetching only
ri20. From-this point Havemeyer forged
decidedlv ahead, Lawrence falling more
and more into the background. Have
meyer at length fetching S210, O'Brion
S16-5, and Lawrence only $05. A single
pool was sold on the State of New-Jersey.
Grant bringing $150 and Greeley SG5,
Another one was sold on Indiana Grant
$100 and Greeley, $40. For Connecticut,
$1!00 was given for Grant at first choice,
nml no bid at all was made for the second
choice. A pool was also sold on 20,000 ma
jorityfor Grant in New York State
nflirmntlw S10O : ncirntive. SS0. An at
tempt was made to sell a pool on Dix and
Kernnn. S150 belli!? civeil for Dix : but SO
small a sum was offered for Kernan that
the sale was not consumated. Finding it
impossible to sell on anything save tlie
mayoralty, Johnson returned to that,
Havemeyer being still first favorite at
ubout the same odds. The pool-selling
will continue all the week.

Norinnntly.
Tlio'Nnslivillo Manner lias received tho fol
lowing particulars of nn nssnult upon tho homo
of a colored miin, nbovo Tulhdiomn, by a pnrty
of di'guUcd men, mul tlio killing of ono of the
nssniltinte :
On Tuesday morning, nwliilo boforo daylight,
livo disguised persons called nt the cub in of n
young colored innn by tho numo of Crawford,
on thofnrm of Bnrnoy 1'nttcrfion, between Tuiln
iionm nnd Normandy. They demanded ad
mittance! in a threatening and turbulent man
ner, and Crawford refused to open tho door, ho
being in his cabin aluno. Tho parlies then com
menced breaking open tho door, which they
soon succeeded in doing. As quick as tho door
oponcd, Crawford fired upon tho foremost man
and killed him dead in his boots. Tho other
four foil back out of rango of Crawford's pistol
and begged tho privilego of coming back for tho
dead man, which was readily granted.
The man who was killed turns out to bo
young Mr. Carr, n son of Esq. Tlios. Carr, near
Normandy, a citizen in good fctandlng in tho
community. 31 r. Carr says that tho parties
who brought his soil's remains to his houso
wero still in disguise and ho failed to recognize,
any of them. Crawford succeeded in capturing
two disguises and uniforms and ono pistol from
tho marauders. Tho vordict of tho community
is entirely in Crawford's favor. Crawford hns
tho name of being a peaceable, quiet, industri
ous boy nnd says that ho regrets tho occurrence,
but that ho don't intend to be run over by men
in disguise. This bloody occurrence will proba
bly end tho Kuklux business, that has been oc
casionally disturbing tho citizens of Duck
Itivcr for tho last threo four years.
