VOL. I—NO. 120. BOARD OF TRADE. Committee of Arbitration for the month of July. CHARLES R. I'EARCE, G|o. SLATER, i TIIOS. ARMSTRONG, HIRAM WOOO% I WM - R - I'ENNIMAN, ihift;irn iu\is (Commercial BALTIMORE, July 10,1858. Tin* market was tolerably active to-day for Baltimore City 6's and Baltimore and Ohio Railroad shares, but in oilier descriptions of stocks there was but little done. The sties of Baltimore and Ohio comprised 592 shares at ss7# c&h and short time contracts, ss7#@ss7# bu.\er 60 d*ys. It closed at ss7# bid, ss7# asked regular way; sl7# bid, SSB :isked buyer 60 days, # advance since yes day. In Northern Central there was nothing doing; *l7# was bid regular way, $lB asked same as yester day. Baltimore 6's, 1890, advanced # since the previous day, 410,400 selling from 99 up to 99#, and SI,OOO 1886's at 99#. The only sale of Railroad bonds was SI,OOO Balti ninre and Ohio 1886*s at 82#, an ixi pro Yemen tof #. We ilso note a sale of SI,OOO Patapsco Company bonds at 63#, # better than last sales. Bank stocks continue quiet and firm, with sales to-day of 12 shares Bank of Baltimore at 98#. The total transactions at the Board to-day amounted to about $48,000. Stocks at New York were more buoyant to-day, prices f all kinds having advanced. Both Virginia and Mis souri State Stocks improved #; Erie #; New York Cen tral #; Panama #; Cleveland and Toledo #; and Michi gan Southern #. The New York Commercial Advertiser of Saturday af ternoon, says: With a moderate business at the board this morning Borne advance was realised in prices. New York Central, which went up from 83# yesterday morning to 84 in the afternoon, began to-day at 84#, and advanced to 84# at the close. Erie, with more activity than it has shown for several days past, opened at 18# and closed at 18#, against 17# and 18 at the two boards yesterday. Reading with a moderate business only, commenced at 46#, but finally receded to 46#, yesterday's final price. One hundred shares of Brooklyn City Rail Road was taken at par—the first sale at the board for some time. Delaware and Hudson brought 98#. In the Western Roads the feature was quite an active market in Michigan Central. It advanced from 57 at the first board yesterday to 59 at the second. To-day it opened at 60, but finally receded to 59#, with sales of about eight hundred shares. Michigan Southern old stock began at 22# and fell to 22#, against 22 at both hoards yesterday. The guaranteed advanced ,#. Panama Rail Road ad vanced 1; Chicago and Rock Island #; Cleveland and Toledo #; Galena and Chicago #, and La Crosse and Mil waukee #. There was a large business in state stocks. Of Missouri sixes alone more than two hundred thousand dollars were sold opening at 84#', and closing at 85. an advance of #. Of Virginia sixes nearly seventy thousand dollars were sold closing at 93, # higher than yesterday. Michigan sixes of 1878 closed at 104, yesterday's price; Tennessee at 91#; North Carolina at 96, and California bonds at 86 for both old and new. In Rail Road bonds there were large sales of La Crosse Land Grant, closing at 33 regular, yesterday's price, and 31# seller sixty. Erie bonds of 1875 were sold at 35; Hudson River first mortgage at 102, and Illinois Central at 87#, # decline. There is little of interest to notice in money matters this week. General business, as is usual at this season is very dull, though there appears to he a little more activity and firmness in stocks than during the preceding week, yet nothing that approaches to a speculative spirit. It is *al most impossible to place money in the market, at even the present low rates, anil large amounts are lying idle in the hands of capitalists, without bringing in any return what ever. The market rate on call is nominally four per cent., hut there are negotiations at one per cent, lower, and some of the commission houses are refusing loans at even that, finding it impossible to use their means to advantage.— Prime paper remains very scarce, and goes freely at four to five per cent, as offered, and some considerable trans actions arc reported oil bank account at about the medium between the two. Good names, hut not so well known, range at from five to seven per cent. The exchanges at the bank clearing house to-dav were $14,765,246.93, and the balances $1,349,217.65. The Me tropolitan certificates are $28,000, a decrease of SIB,OOO since Saturday last. The business in foreign exchange has not been very large for the steamer of to-day, but the market was firmly sus tained throughout, and closes with a disposition to bold for the outside rates. On London we quote at 109#@109# for hank anil bankers, and 109 a 109#; for prime commer cial signatures. On Paris firstname.lastname@example.org#; Hamburg 36#@ 30#; Amsterdam 41 #@4l#; Bremen 79@79#. The Ariel takes out $53,000 in specie to-day. THE DRY Goons TRADE. —The following is a comparative statement of the imports of foreign dry goods at New York for the week and since January 1; For the Week. 1856. 1857. 1858. Entered at the p0rt...52,701,919 $4,443,000 $736,221 Thrown on market.... 2,487,921 5,921,545 802,185 Since Jan. 1.

The new reduced tariff having gone into operation ou the Ist of July, 1857, a large amount of merchandise which had been permitted to accumulate to afford an entry at the lower rates, was taken from the warehouse during the week. The Tribune says: A meeting of the First Mortgage Bondholders of the Steubcnville and Indiana Railroad was held on Friday in the office of CummingSj Alexander & Greene. The First Mortgage Bondholders agreed to fund $210,000, being two years interest on their bonds, amounting to $1,500,000, re ceiving therefor new income bonds bearing 7 per cent, in terest, over half payable in five years from the Ist of Jan uary next, and the balance in 10 years from the same date; the interest on them to be paid semi-annually the same as the other bonds, provided the remainder of all the floating debts oj the Company can be funded by similar bonds payaHe in 10 years from the Ist of January next. The interest due on the First Mortgage Bonds coupons up to the Ist of January next, is to be paid in money on that day. The accruing interest on other floating debt up to that time, will also probably liave to be paid then in money. This will clear the Company of all debts up to that date, except the Second Mortgage Bonds, amounting to $500,000 indorsed by the Pennsylvania Central Railroad Company, which will have to wait until the First Mort gage claims and the present floating debt of $250,000 are wiped out. A Committee was .appointed to co-operate with the Trustees; with powers to act with them in effecting this arrangement. It is believed that If this plan is car ried out the Company will he able to go on prosperously and meet all of its liabilities. SALES AT THE BALTIMORE STOCK BOARD. SATURDAY, July 10, 1858.

There has been a better demand for Roots and Shoes, but the business of the week has been comparatively light, the celebration of the sth instant have interfered with the course of trade. The buyers now here feel disposed to act very cautiously, as they consider the market in rather an unsettled state. The advices they receive from homo are not of the most satisfactory kind, as collections are still very poor in all sections of the country. The present in , dications are that buyers vill purchase sparingly for the | present and trust to future purchases to keep up*their as j sortment. I The stock has not been particularly increased the past : week, and as the season is now at hand for active opera j tion, prices are firm. We look for a more active market j next v|c'ek. In the Hide and Leather trade there is no change. Stock of all kinds keep well up and the compat j ative cost of goods are not likely to he reduced from any j decline in the price of stock at present.

Acres and acres of crops are destroyed, peach trees ru ined, wood floated away, corn and potatoes inundat ed to death. The Charleston tS. C.) Mercury of the 3d inst., says:—On the night of the recent tire in Queen street, a negro fireboy, while in the upper story of Messrs. Havne & Yates' warehouse, accidentally fell out of one of the rear windows, a distance of thirty feet to the ground, and brought his head, fortunately for his life, in contact with the head of a whiskey barrel. The result was the barrel leaked. The Washington (Pa.) Tribune , says:—On Fri day last about noon, while a number of persons were congregated under a locust treet in Cross Creek Village, in this county, a thunder storm suddenly arose, and the lightning passing down the tree, one of the number, Charles Jerome, was struck and iu stantl3' killed. A young German named Henry Kurtz, of Lancas ter, JVnnvslvania, was drowned on Sunday near Wrightsville.

Journal, June 28 th.] ' A PRISONER TAKEN FROM THE HANDS OF THE CIVIL OFFICERS AMI IIU.VG. i A few weeks since we published some of the par | ticulars of the killing of a constable named Tim lnons, in Gentry county, by a man named Kesler, I and the excitement attending the tragedy. Kesler I was threatened with lynch law unless he had his | trial immediately by civil authorities, whereupon a ; runner was sent to Platte City to inform Judge Nor | ton of this declaration. The .1 udge appointed a spe ! cial term of the court immediately, and on Tuesday I last, 22d inst., Judge Norton, Circuit Judge of this District, and Gen. Bassett, State Attorney, in com i panv with counsel for the defence, left this city for I Albany to attend the trial. On arriving, the Judge j proceeded to impannel a grand jury. A large crowd of orderly men gathered from all quarters and tilled the court room to overflowing, to witness the pro | ceedings. ' The trial progressed until Friday, when it was found that the two most important witnesses, on the part of the defence, had been driven off, and nothing could be heard of them. This being the J case, the counsel for the defence requested that the | trial should be continued until the regular term, ! which request Judge Norton, of course, granted, j Up to this time, the utmost order prevailed among : the throng; not a murmur was heard, not adissent ; ing voice was given. The Judge, mistrusting a storm brewing from the calm, ordered the sheriff to summon a posse of twentv-five men, to guard the prisoner to jail. The guard had no sooner taken their position, before a rush was made on the pris oner by the mob, when the excitement became gen eral. | The guard was shoved aside, and the prisoner J seized and dragged towards a skirt of timber, about a hundred yards off, the sheriff all the time doing j his utmost to protect the prisoner, assisted bv vol i unteers of the friends of law and order, but all to ■ no avail. The mob rushed on towards the wood j with the prisoner. On arriving at a suitable j place, religious service was held by a gentleman who volunteered his services, and the prisoner also I prayed. The rope was then put around his neck, j and thrown over a limb. Previous to execution, the prisoner begged piteouslv for permission to see his wile and four interesting little girls once more before he died. Strange to say, this request was not granted by the infuriated und fiendisli mob. j He was then-swung up; the rope breaking was j speedily tied again, and the spiritof the unfortunate | man was launched into eternity. [ From the Cincinnati Cazttte.] THE GALENA CALAMITY, j The destruction of the steamer Galena, at lied Wing, on the Upper Mississippi, on the morning of the Ist instant, the loss of five valuable lives, and seventy-five thousand dollars worth of property, could all have been prevented, had one single buck j et of water been at hand and used when the fire was first discovered; but before it could he obtained the fire had spread over the entire right-hand side of the boat, thus cutting off the use of the stair way. The alarm was speedily given, all the passen gers having retired for the night, and from all sides, without regard to quality or quantity of dress, men, women and children rushed to the forward part of the boat., as the only place of rescue. The order was given to follow the Captain, but little attention was paid to it—each individual seem ing intent upon his own safety. Hut a few minutes elapsed after the alarm was given until the boat struck the shore, toward which she was directed by the pilot on the discovery of the fire; yet so tierce were the flames that only one plank could be run to the shore, and over this crowded all not intercepted by the fire. Some hack of the flames jumped into the water and swam ashore. A large quantity of cattle were on hoard, des tined for the city; they were all lost. The passen gers saved had just been gotten safely oil" when the hurricane deck fell in. though the boat continued burning during th<v balance of the night, until charred to the water's edge, when she broke in the middle and sunk. The scene on shore was beyond description.— Most of the passengers, roused from a sound sleep, found themselves out of danger with nothing save their night clothes to wear. [ From tlic Chicago Tribune of the 3d] TRAGEDY IN CHICAGO. A most bloody and brutal murder was discovered this morning in the North Division, which must have been committed on the day previous. The murdered person is a woman, named Jane Mc- Namee. The first intelligence of the murder was commu nicated by MeNamee himself, who entered the sta ble of Mr. Wright, his employer, about J o'clock in the morning, and with both hands raised, hurriedly exclaimed to the watchman on the premises, Palmer, my wife is dead! Palmer asked how it took place. "I don't know; I woke up, and found her dead in bed this morning." Palmer immediately went to the rooms occupied by MeNamee, and the appearances caused him at oiiee to leave information at the North Police Sta tion opposite, upon which MeNamee was taken into custody. The Coroner was immediately summoned, who took charge ol the rooms. After listening to the testimony, the jury, with a very few moment's consultation, returned a verdict that the yroman came to her death from blows in flicted by her husband, and he was accordingly committed to stand his trial for the awful crime. The vacht Wanderer, recently seized in New York oh suspicion of being a slaver, uiade the pas sage from that city to Charleston, S. C., in seven days, beating against head winds. PRICE TWO CENTS THE DE lUVIERE ROMANCE. The following is a succint account of tie Riviere's introduction to the family of Col. Blount, which the New York Express has gleaned from authentic sources: Some time in the earlv part of March, "Capt. do Riviere" made his appearance in Mobile as a Crimean hero. He was introduced to the fami ly of Col. Rlount at the house of a lady friend in Mobile, and shortly afterwards Col. Rlount, who is a lawyer, went to attend the sitting of the Supreme Court sit Montgomery. During his absence, do Riviere's difficulty with Capt. Maury occurred, and the duel was fought at live o'clock on a Sunday evening. n Sunday morning, the same day, Mr. Rlount Doing absent, and on his wav at the time from Montgomery to Mobile, de Riviere called at his house and asked to see Mrs. Rlount. Fie was shown into the parlor, where Mrs. Rlount soon met him. He then told her that he was going to light a duel with ('apt. Maury at five o'clock (hat afternoon, nnd he had a request to prefer to her, which was, that it lie should be killed in the duel, she would see that his body was interred according to the rites of the Roman Catholic Church. He added:—lt may seem strange that 1 should prefer such a request to you, a perfect stranger, and it is necessary that 1 should explain it. 1 am not what I s< "ir '"'apt. dc Riviere, hut the* Count dc Riviet . doorman of France. I have • large estates and-revenues; but I have heard within a few days that toy steward has collected all the revenues due me, besides coercing six months rent in advance from mv tenants, under threat of ejec tion; that he liaa destroyed the title deeds to my property, and absconded from France. In conse quence iam without money. I have had the good fortune to save the life of the Emperor three several times from secret assassination, but mv services in so saving him are known only to myself, the Empe ror and three of his ministers. I have distinguished myself in the Crimea, as one of the leaders of a forlorn hope, and you have seen the medals, orders and decorations that have been conferred on me therefor. 1 have earned the gra titude of the Emperor. In consequence of mv in firm health, caused by injuries and exposures in the Crimea, the Emperor regards me as his friend and protege, and lias granted me three years leave of absence to travel in the United States. He tn|4 me, before 1 left Paris, that if I would marry an American lady, he would place her near the person of the Empress, and create me Due de Riviere, giv ing me estates sufficient to support the title with proper dignity. He designated the estates which he intended should accompany the title, and from them I should he able to allow my wife from sixty to eighty thou sand dollars a year to spend as she pleased. The Emperor's object in bidding me to marry an Ameri can ladv was that she might form a nucleus around which he could collect the young provincial nobili ty of France, and thus reform his court. He is dis gusted with the impurity, immorality and vice pre vailing at. his court among its ladies, and desires that the Court of France should equal in purity, morality and virtue, that of Queen Victoria in England. He insisted that I should marrv an American and not an English lady, because the French would not tolerate the influence of an English woman in thi; Emperor's household. Now. Madam, ever since I have seen you, I have felt the greatest respect and veneration for you, and an attachment lor your daughter, which I cannot explain. lam standing in a very solemn position. Before the sun sets 1 may be numbered with those who are no more in this world. Occupying such a position, with all its solemn consequences, you must see that 1 have no object in misrepresenting facts, or stating anything false to you. I ask you now solemnly, as though the request came from the lips of a dying man, never to di vulge to your husband or children the communica i tion which I have made to you. If 1 should sur vive, and succeed in winning the affections of your daughter, I wish them to be founded on esteem for : me alone, and do not desire her imagination to be dazzled by the brilliant prospect that awaits her as my wife. In reply to this extraordinary address, Mrs. Blount gave the required assurance, and the gal lant "Zouave" departed to fight his duel. It will be easily seen how he gained his influence over the mind of Mrs. Rlount, when this romantic storv is taken intcT account; and it is hardly to be wondered at that such protestations, made under such circum stances, should eonvince the good lady that she was taking the surest course to make her daughter a j peeress of France. i The dud with Capt. Maury was fought the same evening, when the parties fired twice. At the first ' fire, Capt. Maury's ball bit Capt. de Riviere in the I side and turned liim half round, lb- claimed that ' the ball struck a half dollar in his waistcoat pocket, thus saving bis life. A half dollar and a bullet, said to be the identical ones that figured in this | affair, have been shown us. The coin bears no i mark of having been shot at. The ball, however, I bears the distinct impression on one side of the j meshes of a coot of mail. It is stated that Capt. ! Maury's second suspected that the brave Crimean I wore armor, and therefore advised his principal to ! fire at his head; the result was that the second shot i struck de Riviere in the cheek. After the duel he was brought in a carriage to Col. Blount's house, I and while he remained there had ample opportu nity to prosecute his suit, with what success, the sequel has abundantly shown. The New York Commercial Advertiser , JuncKth, ! says: One of the morning papers publishes a statement going to show that dc Riviere lived at a hotel in Williamsburgh in the summer of 1857, with a wo man whom lie represented to be his wife, and that when doubts of his marriage with this woman were hinted, to silence the scandal he came over to New York, and had the marriage ceremony repeated Canal street, and that this was the marriage al luded to in Captain de Riviere's letter to the pub lic. The next question will be, where is Jane j Bouche? P. S.—Captain de Riviere, whose ease was to , come on in the Supreme Court at Bergen, N. .1., this , morning, was among the missing. The case was ' adjourned till Monday. The New York Herald of Saturday, thus specu lates upon TIIE WHEREABOUTS OF THE ZOL'AVE. The sudden disappearance of de Riviere created quite a stir around. His departure must have taken place after one o'clock on Friday morning, as be was seen in his room but a short time previous by j some parties who were passing the hotel at that | time. The cause of his sudden departure is not at- I tributed to the fear of being served with the writ; | but the arrival of two officers —one, James R. Dunn • —with a requisition from the Governor to take him to the State of Louisiana, to answer to forfeiting bis bail in New Orleans, was no doubt the reason. He has had great fear of being taken on this mat ter, and on several occasions inquired if there was any attempt being made to procure a requisition. It seems that he ny some means got wind of the in tended visit of officer Dunn, and accordingly left no doubt in company with officer McDonough, as the latter gentleman cannot bo found, be having disappeared also. There can be no doubt but he Riviere will shortly be arrested, as McDonough has no idea of paying out one thousand dollars just about now. He will hold on to him in all probabili ty as long as he possibly can, but if all does not work right, Mr. de Riviere will be compelled to make his appearance. THE MUTINY OF THE JUNIOR. —The following is an extract from a letter dated Sydney, N. S. W. : "The ship Junior is fitting up to receive the muti neersand their 'guard,' under the superintendence of the United States Consul, and we hope to des patch her in the course of ten days. It has been deemed unsafe by the consul to continue the survi ving officers in their positions as first and second officers of the ship, the remainder of the crew abso j lutely refusing to do duty under them. The ship I will go home under the command of Capt. Alfred F. Gardner, of Nantucket. Mr. Provost sailed for home in the India, of New London, on the Ist April. Mr. Lord, 2d officer, takes passage in the Junior. The eight mutineers who have been taken, have been formally delivered to the United States Couusul. and i only await the completion of the arrangement for their reception on shipboard. Every care will be | taken that they shall be safely conveyed." THE MURDER OK PROP. BAEHR. —The trial of .las. McKee for the murder of Prof. Baehr occupied our criminal court on Wednesday and went to the jury at noon of Thursday. The commonwealth made out a strong ease, and the defence of an alibi was rather weak—the witnesses, with one exception, not accounting for the prisoner's whereabouts to with in an hour of the commission of the murder. His friends, however, allege they would have been able to prove his absence from the scene <1 murder by other witnesses than the boatman Jackson, had they attended—one of whom, residing in an adjoin ing county, bad promised, as late as tin; morning of Thursday, to attend. The jury have not yet re turned a verdict. — Pittsbury Dispatch, July 7. MUTINY ON BOARD SHIP TORNADO. —The crew of the American ship Tornado mutinied on the passage from Liverpool to Melbourne, when three of the men were shot by the second officer, one of whom died of his u'ounds. The U. S. Consul at Melbourne, James M. Tarleton, investigated the matter, and caused the arrest of eight of the sailors previous to their deportation to the United States. The Legis lature of Melbourne took the subject into considera tion, and members were disposed to question Mr. Tarleton's jurisdiction, inasmuch as the ship was chartered by the British government when alleged offences were committed, and that the men were British subjects and could not be arrested on Brit ish territory by a foreign official.
