! B. Reed, of Philadelphia, Mr. J. T.
: Brady, of New York, and Mr. George
I AY. Brown, of Baltimore, counsel lor
Mr. Davis, have arrived in this city, and
are staying at the Ji.xehange Jiotei.
They are accompanied by Mr. A. "Welsh,
of Chestnut Hill, near Philadelphia, and
Messrs. C. 11. Gross and T. II. Edsal.
Colonel Burton N. Harrison, formerly
! private secretary to Mr. Davis, is also j
staying at the liixchange. '
It is understood that these gentlemen j
have chosen no special plan of action, i
but wish to show by their presence that
they are in readiness for the trial. Ifj
the United States Court does not meet, '
or if docs meet and Mr. Davis is not :
arraigned, it is the intention of the coun- j
I sel to endeavor to have him released on j
parole or bail until the regular session
in the fall. Mr. Davis's counsel are j
prepared to tender bail to any amount ;
that may be requirrd. !
Mr. O'Conor and Mr. Shea are ex j
pected to arrive in this city by the Rich
mond, Fredericksburg and Potomac i
train this morning, and it is possible I
that they will then bring further infor- j
matiou in relation to the trial. !
Judge Underwood is not- known to i
be in the city, and it is not yet certain j
that the United Slates Circuit Court i
will meet. i
By a recent act of Congress, special j
sessions ol the Circuit Court may be !
held; but Chief Just ice Chase is not ;
known to have made an order for such i
extra session at this time. It is how j
ever, rumored in the city that such an j
order has been made, and that the spe- j
cial session will commence on Wedne:- i
day morning next.
Messrs. Reed, Brady, and the rest of
their party, were called on yesterday by
General Wise and a number of other
prominent gentlemen. j
It is understood that nearly the whole j
of the Baltimore bar have tendered their j
services as counsel to Mr. Davis in case j
they should be required upon his trial.
The shipments ef ;old by the steam
ers to Kuroje since the first day of Jan
nary have amounted to twenty-nine
millions six hundred and ninety-one
thousand dollars, The ;oId sales by
the Treasury since 31a y 1st amount to
thirty-six millions. " Thus more uold
has been supplied by the Treasury by
private sales, independently of the
amount paid out for interest, than has
been exported. The stock of rold has
also been kept up by 1 a rre receipts from
California. There seems to be no very
jxreat cause for the present advance of
uold, and the opinion is, that when the
parlies ali'.-cted by the panic in Knu
land touch bottom. old must decline.
lint have they reached the bottom ?
The last accounts are, that the inoneia- j
ry disturbance is nearly over. The '
bank failures in England have some-
what affected the cotton trade with the
East Indies. How far they will affect '
the American cotton trade and cotton
bills remains to be seen. Hut we learn i
from commercial sources that some of;
the houses announced as agencies of the
larire establishments will necessarily be
aifected. Until all these wrecks shall
be cleared away, we cannot expect to
iind safe jrround to stand upon.
Some of the cold operators in New
York have failed. Yesterday there was
no brokers' board held in New York.
The day before ?old closed at 40'.
Yesterday week it reached 41 1. There
is still a demand for irold for payment
of duties on imports, but is the specula
tive demand that has been the chief
cause of its advance.
In the Treasury statement which we
give below it will be seen that the pa
per circulation on the 1st of 'May was
$930,R08,471 an enormous amount and
totally disproportionate to the legiti
mate business of the country. This pa
per is accumulated in the business cen
tres, and, as business is everywhere dull,
its chief employment must be in specu
lation. Hence it is that all kinds of
stocks are quoted at prices far beyond
their intrinsic value, and a heavy and
sudden decline in them before midsum
mer may be expected. AVitli this super
abundance of paper the Treasury could
not put out a five-per-cent. loan at par
with any certainty of success.
The following statement, in a letter
to a Senator Sherman from the Secre
tary of the Treasury, will be found very
important. From that document it ap
pears that the amount of the public
debt redeemable May 1, 18(37, is $737,
041,420; May 1, 108, 407,415,20 ;
May 1, lsoo, 8690,428,131 ; May 1,
1870, Si 48,000,000; May 1, 1371, $'l26,
024,400. The amount of paper circulation May
1, 18GG, was $930,80S,471, including
the national currency, $269,403,995 ;
State circulation, $45,000,000 ; United
States notes, 415,1G4X318 ; fractional
currency, $28,192,017 , compound notes,
$167,012,141 ; one and two years' livelier-cent,
notes, $6,036 900.
It is estimated that ten millions per
year will be necesary for the payment
of the riia ranted bonds of the JAiciiic
railroad, the total estimate being $83,
280,000. The balance of unpaid claims of States
under the act of July 27, 1861, indem
nifying them for the Avar expenses in
curred, amounts to $12,293,187.
The estimate for unadjusted claims
of individuals on the liie in the Third
Auditor's office is $2,051,058. In the
Third Auditor's office the claims in the
pay and bounty division are estimated
at $18,000,000 ;ob account of recruiting
service, $12,998 ; for moneys deposited
by recruits, $24,244 ; in ordinance, mis
cellaneous, and medical branch, $117,

Some thirty vears ago, in a town in

series of meeting in the same church,
and in conversing with tlie young peo
ple on the subject of personal piety,
amongst other questions he osked a la-
dv whom he was anxious to interest on

and conference meetings .'" She replied
sue tnougiit sue did once enjoy such a
season. The minister then anxiously
inquired, "When and where did you
experience this sensation?" She repli
ed, with perfect sincerity, "It was when
old Deacon liemont fell into the closet,
and was dragged out uninjured by the
heels." The minister appeared so well
satisfied with this conversation that he

Postage stamps cannot be used ill payment of

It is the duty of the maker of an instrument to
allix and cancel the stamp thereon. If fie neglects
to do so, the party for-whom it is made, may
stamp it before it is used ; and if" used after the
30th of July, 18t4, and used without a stamp, it
cannot afterwards be effectually stamped. Any
failure upon the part of the maker of iin instru
ment to appropriately stamp it, renders liiui lia
ble to a penalty of two hundred dollars.

! When two or more persons join in the execution
j of an instrument, the stamps to which this instru
I ment is liable under the law, may be allixed and
! cancelled by one of the parties.
In conveyances of real estate, the law provides
that the stamp affixed must answer to the value
of i he estate on interest conveyed.

ney accompanying a bond or note, when such
bond or note has allixed thereto the stamp oi
stamps denoting tiie duty required, and whenever
