Ligkl-Hoxue JVytww?The subjoined light-bouse notices j
lisve been received at the State Department :
The Minister of Marine at Lisbon has given notice that I
on and after the 1st day of August, 1867, a fixed bright
light, placed at an elevation of 300 feet above the level of
the sea, will be exhibited from the light-house recently
erected on Cape Mondego, at the entrance to Figueira, on
the coast of Portugal. This light should be visible from
the deck of a ship in clear weather at a distance of twenty
miles. The coast between Cape Mondego and Aviero
is more dangerous than it is generally understood to be.
At some distance from the sandy beach bunks of sand
form at intervals, caused by the influence of the winds or
the currents, aud disperse and form again at other points
along that coast, on which vessels in fine weather have
grounded.
'lire Superintendent of Marine at Calcutta has given notice
that a light-ship has been stationed temporarily at
the entrance of the Mutlah channel, in the Bay of Bengal,
at about seven miles southeast uf tiie Outer or Bulcherry
reef buoy, from which a clear white light will be
exhibited at an elevation of about thirty feet above the
level of the sea, which should be visible from the deck of
a ship in ordinary weather at a distance of seveu miles.
The vessel will carry a red fiag at the main-mast head by
day, and, if she continues in her position, will fire a
rocket at 8 p. in., at midnight, and ut 4 a. in., from the
15th of March to the 16th of October. For the present u
pilot brig will show the light.
The Milliliter of MArlue at Madrid has given notice
that on and after the 1 at duy of April, 1857, a fixed
white light will lie exhibited from a light-tower recently
built on Cajie Oreposa, in the province of Castellan, Valencia.
The light will bo varied by a flash once every
three minute*.

The principle on which American merchants and
hankers calculate exchange on England is thus clearly
set forth by a correspondent of the New York
Mirror :
"The par of exchange is determined by the relative
proportion of pure metal in the coined pieoe which forms
the unit of price in the different comuierciul countries of
the world. The alloy is reckoned of no value.
" To simplify the matter us much as possible, we will
waive all consideration of the different standards of fineness,
and state that our American dollar contains
23.22.100 grains of pure gold, and the British sovereign
113 gniins of the same. Every reader may not know that
I the sovereign is the coined piece of which the i>ound stcrl
ing is the money of account. A simple calculation in the
Sj rule of three, therefore, determines that the equivalent of
: tlie pound sterling is $4 86, 65.100 of our currency.
" Thus as 23.22.100 is to one so is 113 to $4 86
65.100. But the English, through all the variations of
the mint laws, here and elsewhere?indeed forages?
r have liecn accustomed to value their pound sterling by
the old Spanish carolus pillar dotlarB, now entirely out of
circulation in Europe and America, having all been sent
to China, or gone into the melting pot. Of these (4 44
4.100 were equivalent to the pound sterling. It will tie
seen that it requires the addition of 9} per cent., with a
scarcely appreciable fraction, to make the present value of
the pound sterling iu our currency. Thus : $4 44 44-100
Add 9$ per cent, premium of exchange 42 22-100
4 86 66-100
"It m.iy be well to explain that, when nothing is said
to the contrary, the quotations of sterling exchange are
by custom for bills at 60 days' sight; which, at the legal
rate of interest here, involves a loss of one per cent., besides
the time of transmission. But, on the other hand,
at the most favorable rate of shipping specie, one per
cent, is the cost, including insurance, of laying it down
in Liverpool, the time lost in transmission being the same
in either case. Thus, oh one of these items balances
the other, the true par of exchange is 9 J per cent, on
F.nclnml at which rate generally it is as well to remit
good (iO-day btllo oh specie."
A stockholder of tho Bank of Commerce of Georgetown
thinks that we have been wrongly informed as
to the facts concerning their suspension, and desires
to make a correction. Our article of yesterday, so
fur us it related to tho Bank of Commerce, was based
upon information which wo deemed correct. We
certainly had no intention to do injustice to either
bunks or individuals. We, therofore, publish the
communication of stockholder with a great deal of
plousuro :
1\> thf Editor of the Union :
Sik : Your well-established reputation for fair and correct
dealing towards the moneyed concerns of this District
induces me to appeal to your sense of justice to cor.
reel the observations which your article in tho Union of
to-day, on the banks of the District, contains, in refer,njce
to the Bank of Commerce of Georgetown. That
ban k has not inflicted upon the public or its customers
any such loss ah you allege. It has, on the contrary, redeemed
n "*rly all of its issue, and paid a large share of
its deposites it specie, and its stockholders and officers
have assured public that no creditor shall lose one
cent of what may bo due to him.
'Hie stockholders have large and ample means to meet
more than fivo times iV liabilities of this hank. Their
! names have already beerf announced to the public, and
your own advertising column* exhibit the fact that they
have j/uarantietl the payment of all the liabilities of the
Istnk.
I will add, further, the Bank of Commerce would have
coutinued to redeem its issue in specie had not tho other
hanks of the District suspended specie ps^Bfit, and it
was deemed proper to suspend also, and hold themselves
ready to resume whenever the banks here or in
Ilultimore and Philadelphia resumed.
Credit is always, but especially at this time of pecuniary
distress, of too inestimable value to be suffered to
Ik* dragged down by false clamor and misconception ; and
1 mn Rurc that your own sense of justice will hasten to
repair the evil effect which you have, no doubt unintentionally,
generated against that bank.
By consulting tho business portion of the community,
you will find that public confidence lias not been shaken
in its ability to pay ; and that its course during the present
money crisis has indicated anything but isinkruptcy
or pecuniary destruction. A STOCKHOLDER.

1MFOUTANT INTELLIGENCE FKOM INDIA.
The following letter appears ia the New York
Herald of yesterday morning :
Calcitta, August 10, 1857.
The overland mail for England cloned on Saturday, the
8th inst. 1 write this to send by the alter packet, which
goes down the river thin morning, and will overtake the
mail steamer (the Beutinck) off Bangor inland. We received
very had new* from the interior on Saturday ; bul
as the government ha* kept it back from the uews|>apen
you will not prolmbly hear of it in the ordinary course
| of intelligence until the nest mail.
Lucknow, the capital city of Ovule, hat fallen ; all the EuroI
jieam have been vuueacred by Ncuajee Sahib; and the reltej
| force Wider (Jen. Ilavcloek hat been obliyed to fall back upci
(Xiwnport, terribly decimated by the cholera. There is ever)
i reason to believe that thin news, discouraging as it is, ii
i true. It is not stated ou what day the garrison of Luck
now surrendered, or was overcome by the rebels ; but ii
: must liave lieen about the 1st of the present month
I That city contains a population of about 300,000 Moharu
meilans. who probably fraternised with the besiegers, anc
rendered the destruction of the Kurojieans speedy am
certain. We have intelligence this morning that Gen
Havelock, at Cownpore on the 4th inst , liad received i
reinforcement and had moved on again towards Luck no*
in pursuit of the rebel army. The rebellion and coruagi
are now getting nearer and nearer to Calcutta. Dina
pore and Bcrhampore have mutinied, and a large num
ber of the rebels are coming down the Ganges in boats
But the Dinapore rebels liave been defeated, and live o
the I touts containing them have been sunk by our artii
lery, and live hundred of the rascals killed. Arrah ha
been relieved.
last Wednesday a native was seized in Fort William
in the act of hauling down the English ensign, which al
ways llies fiont the flag-staff, und hoisting a green flag?
the Mohammedan ensign. The fellow was hung oi
Thursday. Two others, caught in some similar act o
treason, were hung at the same time.
The volunteer force enlisted by the Governor-Genera
for tho protection of this city has been under armB and o?
picket duty for more than a week, every day and night
The company to which I lrelong, which comprises tei
Americans anil fifty-live Englishmen, were on duty fron
! 6 o'clock on Friday night to 6 o'clock this morning, tuu
we go on duty again to-morrow. Bo, you sec, we havi
I little time to utteml to business. There are severu
American ships here now loading ; but what are we to d<
in the full for goods to till the ships that are now on thci
way here? I can't say. For this rebellion will not Is
quelled speedily ; and when it is quelled, and peace ii
restored, Indiu will be thrown back in her corumcrcla
progress fifty years.
We are now living in a state of alarm and terror In thl
city which cannot be described. By night and day oui
arms are ready and our powder dry, and we wait with in
tense anxiety for the arrival of European troops fron
England. There are about 800 Americans residing ii
this city, and among them many women and children
For ourselves we feel no fear ; we are prepared to mee
any foe ; but for the safety of our women and childrei
wu uiu ouAiuun. nc unru nut uuet un ui muuc win
their native servants, and wo Bhall protiubly send some o
them home by the. ship Daniel WebBter, which is not
loading hero for Boston.
Lord Elgin is here, and 2,000 troops from China ar
close at hand. The French government at Pondicherr;
have sent orders to Singapore to stop two regiments o
French troops, now on their way to China, and send then
up here for the service of the governor-general, win
lias asked for their assistance. Some of the Madras troops
just arrived, have been sent up to Roncegange, the ter
minus of the railway, to protect that station. The cavair
body-guard of the governor-general were disarmed on tli
5th inst.; and what precautionary measures will next b
taken by Lord Canning?which ought to have been takei
years ago?I cannot tell. The English here are astonish
ingly stupid. It is u wonder that the governor-genera
is alive to-day. What the mercantile community of Cal
cutta think of our government you may judge from thei
petition to Parliament, which I enclose herewith. Thi
community, which represents all the wealth and all th
intelligence of the city, has been considered by the Eas
India Company as interlopers and adventurers, lit onl;
to be snubbed. They have appointed Mr. Mead, edito
of the Friend of India, (which has been gagged by Lori
Canning,) to take the petition to England, and support i
by his personal exertions. Mr. Mead goes home hi thi
steamer; surd, as the Englishman newspaper says, "h
is charged with the well-founder! discontent of ever
British subject in India.''
From the New York Herald of yesterday morning.
THE OAUSn OF THE BKBKLLION IN INDIA.?ARRIVAL OF TH
RBV. DR. 1IAY.
We have had an interview with the Rev. L. G. Hay
who lias latelv returned to this countrv from India, wher
hi; ban been residing for the last seven years as n mission
ary of the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions. Mi
Hay was long resident at Allahabad, one of the principti
centres of the Bengal mutiny, and is the first jrerson wh
has returned from the scene of disaster. The narrativ
of his escape from the massacre, and his views general!
in regard to the mutiny, have been already published ii
our columns, from the London papers, in which city h
received great consideration, and his opinions were eager
ly sought for by the members of the government, in coil
sequence of his high standing and long personal acquaint
ance with affairs of IndiaWe
loam from him that the causes of the mutiny ar
more wldc-rcochlng in the Bengal presidency than in eith
er of the other two?Bombay and Madras. The principti
of thiwe is to be found in the policy pursued by the gov
eminent in tho construction of the army. While in Bom
bay and Madrus the native forces are constituted of mor
heterogeneous materials, in Bengal caste has been recog
nir,cd, and the entire force drawn from a homogeneou
set of men, who have always looked upon themselves a
a superior class, and who never have and never wil
work. To be soldiers, and as bucIi superior to othe
men, is their social condition and pride. In thus attach
ing to itself the military caste, the government believe
that it was securing the strength of the country, and tha
Ib wum ptlji UU UWIO n^muoi/ www mvii nwuuij,
It in this pampered pride that has now turned upoi
those who fostered it. Mussulman ambition lias joinei
with the Brahminical teachers, and they have used ever
means to stimulate the pride of the Sepoys, and thei
hatred for anything that might tend to deprive them c
their social superiority. So far as regards the great mas
of the other inhabitants, Mr. Hay does not think the
are deeply imbued with the spirit of disaffection. Hi
administration of justice by the British officials has beei
dilutable ; and though some of the native officers of th
government have abused their power, and ill-treated th
native population subject to them, the mass of the peo
pie recognise in the British rule a far better administra
tion than has ever been experienced under native gov
crnment. They are, therefore, not deeply interested ii
the success of the mutineers, except so far as the excitci
fanaticism of some may lead them to participate in it.
Mr. llay docs pot anticipate that the mutiny will em
brace Central and Southern India to any considcrabl
extent, for the reason aliove stated ; and ho thinks tha
Delhi cannot be retaken much before the close of th
year, if no mion. 'I he reeonquest of the northern pies
idtmcy has to 1* effected, and it will probably lie a sloi
, operation ; hut of the ultimate success of the lirltis
i troops there can lie no doubt. The destruction of veste
j interests, however, wijl lie great, and everything i
I the shajie of enterprise must he commenced anew
] As an instance, he states that the entire establish
t inent of the mission at Allahabad has been destroyc
| and the Preslivtorian Board of Foreign Missions lias tr
eurrcd a loss of fully two hundred thousand dollars. 11
I will arrange soon to give public addresses on India, 1
the hope to bring back to the lioard from the contrlbi:
tions of those interested in the subject in this muntr
some portion of the great loss It lias sustained. His ow
)iersonnI losses have lieen so great as to deprive him <
all the means he possessed, and it was almost a miracl
that he and his family escaped with their lives. It is hi
intention to proceed shortly to Washington to place th
information in his possession before the government.

THE TOtlAL OF SPEED BETWEEN THE AGAMEMNON
AND NIAGARA
L'kitko Btaibi Fkioatk Niauaka,
Plymouth, England, Sept. 22, 1867.
Tu tin filter </ tkt WuMnglcn Union:
Having seen several erroneous accounts of the small
trial of speed between this ship and her associates, the
I Agamemnon, line-of-battle-ship, and the United States
i frigate Kuaquehauna, (side-wheel steamer,) on their re>
turn to this port, I have sent the following as something
more to be relied on :
f At eight o'clock in the morniug the Busqueiianna was
, out of sight ahead, having pressed on during the night
r | while we were laying to for the Agamemnon. This latl
tor vessel at the same hour was several miles on our
weather how, under steam, with her courses, topsails,
and topgallant sails set. When the order was given to
\ make the same sail on this ship and to increase the revo1
lutions of her engines to forty per minute, we soon
1 j found we were overhauling and jtassing the Agamemnon,
and at three o'clock, p. in., she was hull down astern,
k beating her best speed at least throe miles per hour. It
is well here to say that the Agamemnon is one of their
fastest screw steamers; and u noble vessel she is. At ten
. o'clock made the Susquehanna ahead ; at three, p. in.,
overhauled her and crossed her bows as easy as a dolphin
f would have done it?and tliat, too, while she wus making
' over twelve miles per hour. Since then I have conversed
with the officers of both of these ships, and they acknowledge
they were doing their best; while the Niagara had
. four of her fires shut off, besides dragging through the
- water an immense iron frame to protect the cable from
1 coining in contact with the propeller. We are just tind1
1 ing out what this >hlp cun do : under steam alone 13
j | knots ; under steam aud canvas, with a good topgallant
i | breeae, 17 knots and over. And no finer sea l>oat ever
crossed the ocean.
? We are now laying in one of the government basins at
j the Deronport navy-yard waiting the action of the Telegraph
Compuny to take the cable out of us, and to pass
j it through some preparation to preserve it from rust un)
til it is reshipped in the spring. Whether this vessel will
r be engaged in this work next year again is not known ;
u uui 1 would suppose, Aiier me uucmuuuh, etc., uiaue aim
I fitted in her for thin Important work, that the government
would not recall her until the enterprise was accomH
plished, which I think can certainly be done next June,
r All aro well on board.
