MONETARY AND COMMERCIAL.
BCONETABY. TmrfiSDAT EVENING, July 11. In the money market business continues quiet. The majority of the hanks have a largo surplus of unemployed funds, and some of them would he willing to take first-class commercial paper having 60 days to run, at about S per cent per annum. For call loans -on nndonhted collaterals, money could he had at from 6 to 7 per cent. New York exchange was firm to-day at par for sales between hanks, hnt as there is not a very active demand from the mercantile community just at present, there is not much being sold. At the counter, hankers sell at 1-10 premium and buy shipping hills at 1-10 discount. Straight eight checks on New York hanks axe taken at par. COOK COUNTY UONDS AND DEBT. Last winter the Legislature authorized the issue of $1,500,000 of bonds by the County of Cook in addition to the then outstanding. The purposes for which this new issue 01 bonds was au thorized. were stated in the hill to ba for the erection of a Court House, County Jail, and other necessary county buildings, and for funding the floating debt (now amounting to $400,000) and to provide for the restora tion of the public records. The $1,500,000 of bonds were [issued on April 25. and begin to hear interest from. May 1, 1872, but as the County Treasurer is restricted to paras a selling price, they have not gone off so rapidly as they would other wise. Sixty thousand dollars of them were taken at once on the date of their issue*and up to to-day, July 11, the Treasurer has sold $140,000 more at par and accrued interest, thus making $200,000 in all that have been sold at the specified price. These bonds are cne of the best securities now offered to the public, and the remaining $1,300,000 will doubtless soon be sold. The in terest is 7 per cent, payable semi-annually at the Metropolitan National Bank, in New York, and also at the Treasurer's office in this city. The total in debtedness ot the County, exclusive of this new issue of bonds, was $3,096,200, of which $400,000 was floating debt, and will be fund ed in the new bonds. The total debt of the •county will then be $4,596,200. Under the limitation provision of the new Constitution, which restricts the indebtedness of towns and counties to 5 per cent of the taxable value of their property, the County of Cook would have authonty to increase its debt to .$5,000 000, as the last assessment for State and County taxation in 1671, gave an aggre gate taxable valuation of one hundred mill ions of property in the county. Fer the present, however, there is no occasion for .any issue of more bonds, and before there is, the value of taxable property in the county will be so greatly increased that the county debt will probably never come np to the foil 5 per cent limit. THE INSURANCE BUSINESS. In the summary of the Insurance Report printed this morning was a paragraph in tended to give a general idea of the percent age of losses and profits in the insurance •business at large, and also in this State, but as the receipts and losses in other States were accidentally included Jn figures for this State we reprint the principal ones: Seventy-eight companies that are now doing business, and also did business is 1870 and 1871 are included in one of tbe tables of the report for the pur pose of making a comparison of the profits and losses of their business in the aggregate for the two years. These 78 companies are row and wei e then doing business in varions States of tbe Union, and their receipts, losses, and expenses in all States are in cluded: fcLVENTY EIGHT COMPANIES IN 1870. Eeceivearor premiums $31,774 7IJ Lcttte paid 18,613,343 __Balanoe §13.160,364 expenses ol buemees, including divi* 14.017,503 Deficiency made up by assessments on capital 857,139 SEVENTY-EIGHT COMPANIES IN 1871. received for pieniiums..— 544.9U.574 -Otsespaid 43,009,763 Balance §1,901831 expenses of business, including divi dends 16,837 629 -UtieLcy made up by assessments on capital 14 935,808 Fromtheforegoing it wouldappearthat'the rdinary expenses of doing insurance busi ess in 1870, exclusive of Josses paid (but in cluding dividends), were 44 per cent of the >tal receipts for premiums, and in 1871 were 1 per cent. In 1870 it was necessary for the 5 companies to make assessments to the mount ol $857,139 on capital, to pay divi ends and expenses. But m 1571 the losses 1 orbed nearly the whole of eir receipts making it necessary ' assess $14,935,808 on capital to intinue the business. These 78 companies, will be remembered, are only those that era doing business in Illinois during the hole of both 1870 and IS7I, and whose re nts arc therefore- susceptible ’of compari n. This ehowing of losses in 1871 has, of —fie, no reference to the whole of the ,ea of the gi eat fire in this city, nor of the companies that became entirely bank pt, and went out of business in October, 71, but only shows the business of those t went through and paid in full.

The following grain has been inspected into store this morning np to 10 o'clock: 30 cars wheat; 493 cars corn ; 21 cars oats; 3 cars rye. Total (553 cars) 233.000 bu. There was moro activity in produce cir cles in this city to day, and a decidedly firmerfceling was developed in nearly every one of the markets, in sympathy with a firmer feeling reported from New York, where a partial reaction from depression seems to have set in. The Eastern markets have been on the decline for some time past, and it is no wonder if they experience firmness, even though it should be but tem porary. Our grain receipts were again rather light, and the market was reported bad in England and in some sections of the West. The dry goods market presented no new features worthy of note. Only a light business was doing either on local or interior account, but the preva lent feeling seemed firm; notably so for the standard staple fabrics. In the grocery market an active movement was witnessed, coffees, sugars, teas, and in fact nearly all articles In the list meeting with a good demand. Prices were firm all around, and for refined sugars,—which are in xeduced supply,—quotations were ad vanced l-Bal-4c. Oolites are also tending higher, though aside from O. G. Java, which was marked up a 1 2c, no changes were noted to day. The butter trade was moder ately active, both oh consumptive and speculative accounts, and choice dairy was quoted firm at an advance. Low grades are more or less neglected, and prices are with out improvement. Bagging remains firm at 400401-2 c for Stark; at S9c for Ludlow: SSc for Grahampton; and at 37c for liuyal River. No further change was noticeable in the coal market. Anthracite was fairly aotivo, and firm at the late advance, while bitu minous coals were quiet and easy. Hay re mains dull, with prices weak and unsettled. Hides and leather were firm. Oils, paints, and colors were without quotable change. There are few new features to note in con nection with the market for lumber at the yards. The volume of business transacted during the past two or three days, was mod erately large,—chiefly on local account and the views of dealers were firm and about the same as on the closing days of last week. The stocks throughout the oity are equal to all requirements of the trade. Hardwood lumber is moving off to a fair extent at un changed figures. The inquiry for wool was again of a light character, and the majority of holders weregrantingconoessions ih order to induce purchasers to take hold. Metals, tinners' stock, and nails, were moderatelv active, and sales were being made at quota tions ruling on Wednesday. Iron and steel was a shade more active, and as the Eastern advices were of a favorable charac ter, a much firmer feeling was manifested. New potatoes sold quite readily at the ad vance established yesterday. Poultry, coop erage, beans and broomcom were dull and easy. Building materials were in urgent demand, and held firmly. Railroad freights lemain unchanged. A letter was received on 'Change to day, giving the record of the propeller Alaska, which left Chicago June 20. with G2.984 bu oats, on guaranteed time, for New York. The grain arrived at Erie on th© 34th, left therein cars June 25 to 23, and was deliv ered on board lighters at Jersey City July 1 to 3. This, in the face of a break in the rail road, that necessitated a circuitous route, 100 miles further east than ordinary, and a sweltering sun in New York (05 to 93 degrees in the shade), which made it almost impos sible to obtain men to work, aud several of those employed fainted and were conveyed to hospital. Ten days, exclusive of Sunday and the days of receipt and delivery, Is rapid work, in the face of such difficulties. The flag of the New Dominion was dis played in our harbor yesterday for the first lime. It was carried by the new propeller Mary R. Robertson, of the Collingwood through grain line. Highwines were strong at 1c advance. The market was early quoted excited, with no offer in gs, and two or three buyers freely bid ding yesterday's quotation. Some holders were talking about 90c, but when New York was reported unchanged they modified their views, through the market closed strong, with S7c per gallon bid, on receipt of the later New York. Sales were reported of . 150 brlsatSTc; and 100 brls, buyer August, at 90c. Lake freights -were steady at yesterday’s rates, but less active, though most of the ofiericga were taken, there being fewer ves sels on the market. A total of 10 charters was reported, which will carry out 170,00 d bu corn and 220,000 bu oats. Sail rates closed at S l»2c on wheat, So on corn, and 51-2a5 3-4 c on oats to Buffalo; 1-j 1-23 on wheat, and 13c on corn to Oswe go ; 14c on wheat, and 13 120 on corn to .Kingston, Through rates were unchanged at 24c on wheat, and 23c on corn to Now York, and 24c on corn to Boston and Port land. Provisions were again moderately active, but most of the attention was concentrated on pork, as usual. The feeling in pork was hregnlar, but the market ruled 200 per brl higher, under the growing conviction that elicits are In a light place, though several of tto sales were made by outside parties, and some of the purchases by those now holding poik here on the long side. The market was entirely speculative, and pork for shipment was offered at less than the cur rent “option” rate, but without being taken. It was stated to-day that there is no real comer in pork—that is, no concerted movement; but that large purchases were made by Eastern parties, bona fide, in the be lief that it is good property. This may be so, but it is certain that they could noiv buy more cheaply in other markets than here. There is Utile doubt now that tho July cor ner will he run into August, and there is uo paying how high prices may be forced, as the longs have it all their own way. The only danger is that they will run their hands so the pockets of the shorts, as to force tbeir fingers through the bottoms of the pockets aforesaid. Lard was inactive on winter lots, hut understood to be stronger, with no oiieringg. Winter cured meats were liiinfr, quotations being marked up 1-So ner lb. Bacon meats were also stronger. The market closed at the following range of quotations: Mess pork, cash or seller July, $13.4.ja15.30; do, seller August, $13.40; do seller September, $ 12.75 a 12.60; do seller December, nominal.

There was very little inquiry on other account, though one or two lots were taken by local bnyeis. Prices were quoted unchanged. Sales were reported of 25 brls white winter extras at $lO 50; 35 brla do at $9.00; 200 brls spring extras at 57.50; 100 brls do at $7.40; 500 brls do at $7.25; 100 brls oo at $7.00; 50 brifi do at 50.75; S brls do at So 4'J; 23 brls spring f-npertines at $4~-o; .-00 brls. do at $3,75; 100 brls do at $3 50; 05 brls do at $3.00. Total 1.425 brls. Uran sold at unchanged prices, 10 tons at sllsO on track ; bnc was generally held higher. ’Wheat averaged lo lower than yesterday, though firm at a alight improvement on the closing quotations of last evening. The market was more active, there being a fair number of buving orders in from tba coun try, while local epecnlators also bought more largely than usual. The early advices from Liverpool quoted that market as unchanged, but stated that the weather was wet, and that their crops will be tardy., I jus brought out a better demand, principally from the parties who had received the telegram. The chief tracing was for August, though there was an improved demand for the last half of this month; very little for cash lots, which were nominal duringa great part of theses >ion. The market for teller Aogust opened at sll7. titciu ed to sl,lO 1-2, then advanced rapidly to sll6l-4, under a good demand fell bark to $1.17 :M,- na that demand was svppikd; ruled dull, aud little^ better than m iiiiua. lor a long time aC >l.l'?

Total, 152,000 hu. Com was active and strong, averaging 3-4 a 1c higher, under a good demand for shippers and shorts. The inciting cause of the in creased inquiry vrould seem to he the re ports from New York of comparative scarci ty with a continued good demand for ship ment. Private orders from Liverpool quot ed an additional firmness there, and oar shipments of yesterday were considerably in excess of the receipts, while some thought they saw signs of a farther weakening in freights. Hence there were a njoie healthy demand than on any day for some time past, though we have witnessed two or three more active sessions recently. Seller Au gust opened at 4134-c,and advanced steady to 42 3So at the close. Seller the month sold at 40a40 3 4c; and fresh receipts at 40 l-2a 4114 c. Seller September sold at 42 3-4 a 43 3 S, all closing strong at the outside. Cash sales were reported of 19.C00 bn No. 2 at 41 l-4c ; 12,000 hn do at 41 l-8c; 89.000 hn do at 41c; 79,000 bu do at 40 3-4 c; 16.000 on do at 40 5 So; 74,000 hn do at 401-2 c; 10.000 bn do at4o3-6o; 50.400 hn do at 401-4o; 40000 hu do at 40 l-8o; 50.000 fca do at 40c ; 5 COO bu do at 41c afloat; 11,200 hu high mixed at 41 3-4 c afloat; 800 hu yellow at 41c; 17.000 hu re jected at 37 5-8 c; 4,000hu doatS7 l-2o; 11,200 bu at 57 l-4c; 3,200 bu do at 37 l-8c; 12 000 bu do at 37c; 400 bu do at 30 l-2c; 800 hu no grade at 330. Total, 512,200 hu. Oats were quiet, but in good demand, at yesterdays inside prices, which holders were not disposed to accept. The receipts con tinue light, and arrangements are in pro gress for materially diminishing onr stocks in store, which inclines holders to think that the decline has possibly been overdone. Hence the market was strong, closing at out side prices. Seller August sold at 251-4 a 25 3-4 c, seller September at 25 l-8a25 l-20, and seller the month at about the same range. Cash sales were reported of 9,000 bu (fresh receipts), at 25 l-2c; 05,000 bu, at 25 X-4; 15.000 hu, at 251 So. Total, 89,000 hu.

The ireeh receipts were moderate, hut the yards were well filled with stale cattle, and the supply proved so largely excessive that prices were again weak and unsettled. To-day's receipts embraced some very good cattle, a few that were really choice,but those holdover from yesterday were, with few exceptions, of the common and medium sorts, and made the average quality the poorest for many days. Shippers were out in goodly numbers, but the character of advices irom the markets below was such that they did not feel justified in operating, save on - the moat limited scale, even at the low prices now preva lent here, and the number of beeves taken by this interest made hut a poor showing.

The Evergreen Cut Ur.—The propeller Evergreen City has nt last been relieved from the sandy beech on Long Point, where she was wrecked last Fall. Although the operation has consumed considerable time, it has not been at terotd with exorbitant cost. The work was done with a dredge, one steam-pump and tug Her cules, and was superintended by Captain Riley. On the chore sice the sand was above water, and tuflldentJy dry to walk on. The sand was drtdged and dug away on the lake side, and ends of the boat, ana with the pathiog and nulling of the tug the old wreck was finally got afloat- Con MdeiableEsnd had been washed into her hold by the seas, which had to be shovelled out. Tug Hercules arrived in port with her Monday even ing about nine o’clock,and asa matter of economy she was permitted to settle on the bottom in a shallow place of the river until it Is fully deter mined regarding repairs.

A Fhrfaelogin’a Report Revived. From the Cincinnati Commercial In the July number of the Phrenological Journal there is an accurate sketch of H. G.'s cranial bumps, copied from an old num ber of the magazine. It is a Quarter of a century since this chart was originally pub lished, after his head had been carefully examined, and consequently it cannot be regarded as a eulogy intended to help his election. H. G. himself was exceedingly averse to the examination of his head, and the publication of the sketch of his oharac teristics. The phrenologist called on him, but he declared that no sketch of him would ever he printed with his consent. Some time afterward the phrenologist called on him again, bat he said emphatically that he had no ambition to be published to the world. A third time the phrenologist called on him, but he begged to be excused. The phrenologist, however, was determined to succeed, and resorted to a strategem, by which he was finally able to secure an ex animation of his head. It appears Ithat H. G. had a very remark able phrenological development. The cir cumference of his head is twenty-three and a half inches, and is uncommonly high, so that its mass of brain is really very great ; indeed, it. is of almost the largest sizre known. His intellectual lobe is exceedingly large and well balanced. His developments indi cate neither selfishness nor amiability, but show him to be philanthropic, and governed by the higher reason. His controlling organs are benevolence, adhesiveness, firmness, and conscientiousness, while he possesses only moderate veneration. Amativeness and nhi loprcgenitivGDess are fully developed. Ap probativeness is prominent, while self ik fair, yet rather deficient than excessive. Resistance is great, so is moral courage— combativeness governed by conscientious ness and supported by firmness; yet destruct iveness, or the pain-causing element, is weak, in combination with predominant be nevolence, Secretiveness is foil, while cau tiousness is large, but continuity is weak. Ideality and imitation are only medium. Eventuality, comparison, and causality aie very large. Mirtbfulness is large. Eonu and size aro large. Language is good. Agreeableness is rather deficient, tut human nature is large. In pergonal appearance, as in character, he is striking. He la six feet high, weighs two hundred pounds, has fair complexion, light blue eyes, hair of silky linen ess, and a youth ful, genial expression, betokening temper ance and health. Now, let those who are acquainted with the mysteries of phrenology ponder over these facts. They will dlacoverin them the secret of his life and career. They will learn by them whether he is fitted for the Presi dency. They will see his very strong points and his few weak ones. They will know what powers ho keeps in reserve, what strength he brings to his duties, what mo tives govern his conduct,how he would con front difficulties, and how he would meet the necessities of a new situation. The phrenologist, taking up his bumps one after another, says that the possessor of such organs could not be otherwise than reforma tory ; that he does not cling to the past, but embraces whatever new idea promises to ameliorate the condition of man kind ; that he must search out the right of things, and adhere to it firmly; that this or ganizaiion gives a due degree of policy and discretion, yet, in combination with high moral organs, prevents deception and con ning; that he is able to utilize that vast range of miscellaneous knowledge he pea ce seed; that certain dormant faculties fur nish the basis for the clearness, cogency, and power of his arguments, and his copious How of thought; and that taking all hia fac ulties combined, he is signally qualified for a post of commanding influence. it must be remembered that all this was published twenty-live years ago, whenH. G. was yet a young man, and long before anybody thought of him as a candidate for the Presidency. It was not published with his connivance or privity, but. on the con trary. he tried with all his might to-prevent the phrenologist from examining his head, and thereby revealing his cranial character istics. Yet it almost seems as though the phrenologist had undertaken to describe a man possessed of special and signal qualifi cations for the Presidency in such a political period as that which now exists. We have never seen a phrenological chart of Grant’s bombs. We surmise, however, that he has what Emerson describes as a “ spoonful of brains” less than H. G. Wo doubt if the phrenologist would say that hia developments show neither selfishness nor animality, but philanthropy and higher reason. We suspect that he would not de clare benevolence to be one of his con trolling organs. We don’t think he would say anything about ideality. We are quite sure he would say nothing about Ms mirth fulness. Wo imagine he would not refer to his desire to reform or ameliorate wrong, or to his power of utilizing hia vast knowledge, or to the faculties which give clearness, co gency and power to his arguments; or to his remarkable qualifications for filling a great political office. He might have a good deal to say about his big bombs of acquisitive ness, destructiveness, lumpiehnebs, ana such like. .

Lately one man refused to do this and Lanagan dis charged him. He reported Lanagan to the company and they discharged him. He then swore to take the life of the informer, named Joe Hagerfy, as he had frequently before threatened to taka the lives of others. Wednesday evening, about 5 o'clock, Hagerty stepped into the freight bouse at Trenton. followed’ and called in Ms friend Martin Larkin, who picked up an ice-hatcbet and attacked Hsgerty, who beseecbed Larkin not to kill him. Another man. Hagerty's friend, then came in, when the two first tell on the other two, and the last arrival made his escape. Hagerty, real izing his desperate situation, drew a small knife and cut Lanagan. in the abdomen so terribly as to cause his death in less than five minutes. He then cut Larkin in a simi lar manner, and the latter started to run, Hagerty following him and dealing blow after blow for a considerable distance, cut ting him In the neck, back, and bowels in a thockin g manner. It is hardly possible that be will recover. Hagerty himself, in the melee, received a baa wound in the head with the ice-hatchet. Hagerty bears the reputation of being usually very quiet and peaceful. Lanagan is considered a bad mao, and the only sympathy felt is for his wife and family of four or five children. It is said that the unfortunate widow has been insensible sii ce the occurrence. GIOHGE "WASHINGTON. A letter to His Wife Which Never Beached Her, Bring Intercepted by the brlilih Authorities.

We are not, my dear est, in circumstances the most fa vorable to our happiness; hut let us not, I beseech you, idly make them worse by in dulging suspicions and apprehensions, which minds in distress are bat too apt to give way to. 1 never was, as yen have often cold me, even in my better and more disen gaged day. so attentive to the little punc tilios of friendship as, it may bo, become me, but my heart tells me there no t’er was a moment in my life, since I first knew yon, in which I did not cleave and cling to you with the warmest affection, and it must ctaae to beat ere it can cease to wish lor your happiness above anything on earth. I congratulate you most cordially on the fair prospect of recovery of your amiable daugnur-in-law; nor can I wonder that this second loss of a little one should affect you. 1 fear the fatigues of a journey, aud the per petual agitations of a camp were too much lor her. They are, however, both young aud healthy, so that there can be little dunbt or their soon repairing the loss. And now will my dearest lore permit me, a little more earnestly than I have ever yet done, to press yen to consent to that so necessary, so safe, so easy, though so dreadful a thing, the being inoculated. It was always advis able; but at this juncture it seems to be al most absolutely necessary. lam far from being sure that that reckless madman, oar quondam Governor, from the mere lust of do ing mischief,-will not soon betake himself to carrying on a uredatory war in our rivers. And && Pontiac will certainly be thought most favorable for his purposes, as affording him scope to keep without the reach of an noyance, I have little reason to flatter my self that it would not be particularly pleas ing to him to vent his spite at my house. Let him; it would effect me as it might effect j on, and for this reason among others, 1 wish you out of his reach. Yet I think I would not have yon quit your house professedly fre man apprehension of a visit from him. An apperance of fearfalness and timidity even in a women of my family might have a bad effect; but 1 must be something more or less than man not to wish you out of a danger which, to say the least, must be dis agreeable to yon, and could do good to no one. All this makes for your going to Phil adelphia a place of perfect security; aud it would almost be worth while to be inoculat ed, if it were only for tbo fair pretence it furnishes you with quitting Virginia, at a time when I could not but be exceedingly uneasy at your remaining in it. But I flatter myself any further arguments will be un necessary when 1- shall add, as I now do, that, till you have had the email-pox, anx iously as else I should wish it, I never can think of consenting to your passing tho win ter here in quarters with mo. 1 would have Lnd ‘Washington immediately remove all the unmarried and r suspicions of the slaves to the quarters in Frederick, The harvest ing must be got in by hirelings. Let him keep any large stock of grain trod out, espe cially at the mill or within the reach of water cairiages; and, in particular, let as little as may be left at Clifton's quarters. It will not be too late even in the ffrat week of July to sow the additional supply of hemp and flax seed which Mr. Miffin has procured for me in Philadelphia, - and which I hope will be with yon before this letter. For ob vious reasons you will not sow icon the island, nor by the waterside.* But I hope you will have a good crop on the Ohio, If Bndgey continues refrcictory and riotous, Though 1 know youcau HI ‘spare him, let him by all means be sent off, as I hope Custis’ boy Joe already is, for his sauciness at Cam bridge. My attention is this moment called tff to the discovery, or pretended discov ery, of a most wild and daring plot. It is impossible as yet to develop the mystery in which itr either is oris supposed to be in volved. This much orly can 1 find out. with lies on both sides. No doubt it will make a good deal of noise in the country; aud there are some who think it useful to have the minds of the people kept continually on the Jretby rumors of this sort. For my part, I, who am said to be the object principally aimed at in it, find myself perfectly at my ease, and I have mentioned it to you only from an apprehension that, hearing it from others and not from me, you might imagine I was in the midst of danger that I know not of. The perpetual solicitude of your poor heart about me is certainly highly flattering to me, yet I should be happy to be able to quiet your fears. Why do you complain of my reserve, or how could you imagine that I oistiusted either your prudence or fidelity ? I have the highest opinion of them both. But why should I tease you with tedious de tails of schemes and views which are perpet ually varying, and which, therefore, might not improperly mislead when I meant to inform you T Suffice it that I say, what I have often before told you, that as far as I have control of Them, all our preparations aim only at peace. Neither do lat this moment see the least likelihood of there being any considerable military operations this season; .and, if not m this season certainlyln no other. It is im possible to suppose that in the leisure and quiet of winter quarters men will not have the virtue to listen to the dictates of plain common sense and sober reason. The only true interest of both sides Is reconciliation ; nor can there be a point in the world clearer than that both sides mast be losers by the war, in a manner which even peace will not compensate for. We must at lost agree and be friends, for we cannot live without them, and they will not without us; and a by stander might well be puzzled to fiotl oat why as good terms cannot be given and taken now as when we shall have well nigh ruined each other by the mutual madness of cutting one another's throats. For all these reasons, which cannot but be as obvious to the Eng lish Commissioners, and ours, as they are to me, I am at a loss to imagine how anything can arise to obstruct a negotiation, and of consequence a pacification. You, who know my heart, know that there is not a wish nearer to it than this is; but I am prepared for every event, one only ex cepted : I mean a dishonorable ueace. Bather than that, let me, though it be with the loss of everything else X hold dear,.con tinue this horrid trade, and by the most un likely means be the unworthy instrument of preserving political security and happiness to them, as well as to ourselves. Pity this cannot be accomplished without fixing on me the sad name rebel. I love my King; you know I do; a soldier, a good man, cannot , but love him. How peculiarly hard then is our fortune to be deemed traitors to so good a King ? But lam not without hopes that even he will yet see cause to do me justice; posterity lam sure will; Meanwhile I com fort myself with the reliection that this has been the fate of the bravest and boot men, even of the Barons who obtained Magna Ob art a, while the dispute was depending. This, however, anxiously as I wish for it, is not mine to command; Isee my duty, that of standing up for the liberties of my country, ana whatever difficulties and dis couragements be in my way, I cannot shrink from it;. and I rely on that Being who has net left ns to tbo cUoice of duties, that while I conscientiously discharge mine I shall not finally lose my reward. If I real ly am not a bad man lehnUnot long be so sot down. Assure yourself I will pay all possi ble attention to yonc recommendations. Bat happy as I am in an opportunity of obliging you, even in the smallest things, take it not amiss that I use the freedom with you to whisper in your ear to be spar ing of them. You know how I am circum stanced; hardly the promotion of a subal tern is left to me, and free and independent as I am, I resolve to remain so. I owe the Congress no obligation for per sonal favors done to myself; nor will I run in debt to them for favors to others. Be sides, 1 am mortifitd to ask of them what, in sound policy' (if other motives had baen wanting), they ought to have granted to me unasked. I cannot describe to yon the in convenience this army suffers for want of this confidence being given to its Cumoiaud er-in-Chief, But as these might be increased, were my peculiar situation in this respect generally known, I forbear, only enjoining your cau tious silence on this head. In a regular army our Virginia young men would certainly, in general, make the best oiiicers ; but 1 regret that they have not now put in my power justly to pay them this compliment. They dislike their Northern allies, and this dislike is the source of infinite mischief and vex ations to mo. In tbe many disputes ami quarrels of this sort which we hare uad,one thing has particularly struck me.

The publication of Mr. Osgood & Co.'s Ju llhe Days makes a new era in. illustrated, papers. How it was engraved is described in tho following paragraphA glass plate is prepared with a white etching-ground, oa which the subject to be drawn is lightly sketched with a very, soft pencil. Ihe glass is then placed on a piece qf dark cloth, and with a common steel etching point the draw ing is ent or scratched through the ground to the glass, each line as produced appearing as black. as an ink line on paper. When tho work is completed the picture is before yon. as sharp and brilliant as an impression from a copper-plate, and a skilful artist can work mere rapidly with these materials than with a pencil on paper. Here the artist's labor ceases, and in a couple of minutes he can be shown a permanent print from the glass by the aid of which he can put on his last touches, or make any needed alterations. From this glass plate,by a chemical process, a transfer is placed upon a sheet of prepared zinc which is plunged into a proper etobing bath, and the engraving is done by corrod? ing the white spaces between the drawn lines, the latter being firmly protected by the materials used in the transferring, and, where necessary, by adding various compo sitions not affected by the acids.” —♦ nXurdcr of a Pru<»s«i> In e in E&biu- F/om the Lawrence (Kan.) Journal. July 3. One day last week the Sheriff of Labsttd Conn ty, with a posse, pursued a horse thief and brought him to bay in a piece of timber. The thief made a stout resistance, and before be was captured mortally wounded the Sheriff, who died next day. The thief was confined, and on Thursday was brought be fore a Magistrate for examination. In the presence of the Justice, the Constables, (and the bystanders, a brother of the deceased Sheriff walked into the Court-room, deliber ately went up to the prisoner, placed a pistol behind his ear, and blew his brains out. Toe account adds that Hobs, the murderer, was arrested, but there are hundreds of men ready to see him through. gAmBQAa TOfE-TASIA Arrival and Departs el Tj-alif, s zr.iimaß utn~a*3JrcrS'*is.'\'r, Chicago A Alton Railroad.
