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 [email protected]#; Hamburg 36#@
30#; Amsterdam 41 #@4l#; Bremen [email protected]#. 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.

Thrown on market... 48,844.102 4-1,990,550 28.824.126
As compared with the corresponding week of 1857, this
shows a decrease of $5,119,360 in the amount thrown on
the market this year. 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.

The market continues firm with an increased demand
for consumption—esjwcially for the better grades of Rio—
but the small stock and stiff rates demanded, restrict ope
rations. The Applegarth's cargo of 2.500 hags Rio, and
2,200 bags Java, per Mississippi, have been taken on pri
vate terms.

DOMESTIC MARKETS.
BOSTON ROOT AND SHOE MARKET.
FOR THE WEEK ENDING JULY 9.
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.
I Among the exports of the week we notice 1,458 cases
j from this port to San Francisco, per Zephyr From New
York the shipments reported by two vessels are only 84
cases.

CITY INTELLIGENCE.
THE NEW YORK MILITARY—THEIR PASSAGE THROUGH
THIS CITY. —The announcement was made in our issue of
Saturday, that the Seventh Regiment of New York Volun
teers would pass through this city on their way homeward.
Arrangements had been made for leaving Washington in
a special train at quarter past five o'clock Saturday morn
ing, hut for some reason they did not leave that city until
seven o'clock, ami in consequence of the delay arrived at
the Camden Station at nine o'clock instead of quarter
past seven, as was anticipated.
The Regiment numbers 1,090 men at roll call—five hun
dred and ten of whom left the city of New York as the es"
cort to the remains of President Monroe, from that place
to Richmond on the steamer Ericcson. They were accoui
panied by their celebrated hand, consisting of fifty-six in
strumcnts, including eighteen drums. It was not the uri
nal intention Jto pass home this way, the change in the
route being produced in consequence of the grounding of
the steamer in the Potomac river, and no time was allowed
the military of this city to make preparation for their pro
per reception and entertainment.
As it was, however, the company of United States Ely
ing Artillery from Fort McHenry, under command of Ma
jor French, and the Battalion of Baltimore City Guards,
under command of Major Joseph P. Warner, were at the
station ready t<> receive and escort theiu to the President
street depot. The escort was formed, the Light Artillery
taking the right, followed by the City Guards, and then
came the Seventh Regiment, preceded by their hand, di
vided into sixteen platoons. The procession moved up
Eutuw street to Baltimore, down Baltimore to High street,
and thence to the Philadelphia depot. Their appearance
was very imposing, and attracted the attention of thou
sands of our citizens who had congregated along the line
of the route. Arriving at the depot, the cars were soon
in readiness for them, and a few minutes past ten o'clock
they took their departure for New York.
(in the arrival or the Regiment at the Camden station
an invition was extended them to remain in Baltimore
during the day, hut this was declined as arrangements
had been effected for a through trip to New York. The
accident to the steamer Ericcson broke up the arrangements
and entirely destroy til the pleasure of the excursion, and
the fatigue endured by the Regiment, in consequence of the
heat of the weather and want of proper accommodation,
made all anxious to seek once more the comforts and en
joyment of home.
ANOTHER STEAM FIRE ENGINE.— On Saturday night
there arrived by the Northern Central Railway, a steam
fire engine called the Island Queen, which had been for
warded by the manufacturers, from Seneca Falls, New
York, for inspection and trial by the Committee of the
Mechanical Fire Company. This engine is built unde r
HoUeifs Patent , all its parts being constructed on the
principle of the rotary steam engine, which is entirely
different from that one now used by the First Baltimore
Company. Its weight is 6,000 pounds, being considerably
'ess than the one now in use here; the price asked for it
is five thousand dollars. There are two engines
built on this principle, now in use in the city of Chicago,
one of them somewhat larger than that sent the Mechani
cal throws a stream of water two inches in diameter, the
distance of 230 feet, the other, similar to the one now here,
throws an inch and a half stream 200 feet. This engine
was built by Messrs Silsby, Myndersc k Co.. Island Works,
Seneca Falls, New York, who are also the builders of
those now in use in Chicago. It will he tried in the pres
ence or the committee either to morrow or Wednesday
morning, when her capacities will be fairly tested; if
adopted it will doubtless prove an important auxiliary to
the Fire Department.
On its arrival at the Bolton Depot, twenty-seven of the
Mechanical members, in company with eight from the
Monumental, making in all thirty-five men, proceeded to
the Station, and dragged it to the Mechanical quarters,
where it is now housed.

taining seven state-rooms, fitted with all modern con

Police Intelligence.
On Saturday afternoon two men hy the names of John
Bangs and James Bishop, had a difficulty in the Hanover
! market house,but before anything seriously resulted there
from the parties were separated and left the market. Sub
I sequently they got together in the restaurant kept by
j John W. Glanville, on the corner of Camden and Howard
streets, when the difficulty was renewed and the parties
made an attack upon each other. A pistol was fired hy
Bangs, when Bishop took hold of him and prostrated him
upon the floor. Whilst the parties were in this position,
Oliver Coulson struck Bishop over the head with a pitch
er, and immediately thereafter Bangs drew his revolver
and fired at Bishop, the contents of the weapon taking
effect iu the back of the head. Bishop was removed to his
residence on Barre street near Warner, where he was at
tended by a physician, who pronounced that the wound
j was not of a dangerous character. The police of the Southern
District immediately apprehended Bungs and Coulson and
| arraigned them before Justice Boyd. Tiny were both
committed to jail for Court, the former on the charge of
j assaulting with intent to kill Bishop, and the latter as
' being accessory thereto.
John Broderick and James Forrister were arrested on
Saturday by officer Miller and constable Davis charged
with assaulting with intent to kill, and also with robbing
William U. Davidson. This affair originated at Frisby's
Woods on Monday. July sth, and is said to have been of
1 the most dis re my. < ..%• character. The accused were taken
before Justicef. Owens, who committed the parties to
the Baltimore County jail at Towsontown.
George Coons and Elizabeth Coons were arrested on Sat
unlay by officers Freehurger and Hutton, on the charge of
assaulting Freehurger while in the discharge of his duty.
It appears the officer went to the residence of Coons to
serve a notice upon him from the Board of M-ulth, when
Coons became excited and committed the assault. They
were released on bail further hearing by Justice
' Audoiin.
Maria Boston, negro, was arrested on Saturday by offi
ccr *'• Vsiine charged with stealing a breast pin valued at
$3.50. She was committed for Court by Justice Welch.
Fires,
Between three'and four o'clock yesterday morning fire
was discovered in the feed store of Mr. George Dfppel, No J
105 Franklin street, between Eutaw and Howard streets.
; The flames gained rapid headway before the arrival of the
I fire department, and extended to the grocery and liquor
i store of Messrs. James Power & Son, adjoining on the
1 east, anil both buildings with their contents were entirely
destroyed. The buildings were owned by Benjamin C.
Howard, Esq., whose loss is estimated at about SSOOO, which
is fully covered by insurance in the Firemen's office. Mr.
Dippel*s loss is estimated at about SI,OOO, and is covered by
insurance. The loss of the Messrs. Power is estimated at
about $5,000; they have $4,000 insurance in the Howard
office and $6,000 in the Firemen's. The buildings adjoin
iug the above on either side, and their contents, were also
injured to a limited extent. The one on the west No. 107,
is owned by Mr. Win. Frusli, and occupied by E. M. Gard
ner, as a grocery and liquor store; it was injured to the
extent of about S2OO. and the damage to the stock will
probably amount to $500; the loss is fully covered by in
suranee. The building No. 101. adjoining on the east, is
occupied as a grocery and liquor store by Mr. J. C. Conn;
damage to stock about SSOO. and building about S2OO. —
The building, jras formerly owned by Mr. Henry Shirk,
and has recently changed hands; the loss on both build
ing and stock is covered by insurance. The fire was the
result of incendiarism.
About nine o'clock on Saturday evening an unoccupied
three story brick house, situated on Bolton street, near
Dolphin, owned by a Mr. Stewart, was tired in three
places. The flames were subdued by the citizens and
officers before any serious damage was done to the build
ing. About twelve o'clock the fire re-kindled, and was
again subdued by the officers. The loss will not exceed
SIOO.
The alarm of fire between six and seven o'clock yester
day afternoon was occasioned by the burning of a chimney
on Baltimore street, west of Green street.

William Mulligan was placed at the Bar, for an "assault
and battery*' on Mr. Webb, of the San Francisco Vigi
lance Committee, at the Metropolitan Hotel. His counsel
mov.ed to postpone the trial till September. Judge Rus
sell refused the motion, and the Recorder was about to try
Mulligan while Judge Russell tried the petty cases iii
another room, when Mulligan placed Aladdin's magical
ring on his finger and became invisible. He had modest
ly withdrawn himself from the crowded Court, where he
was "the observed of all observers." Everybody was
surprised, except Judge Russell, who remained as cool as
the temperature (Fahrenheit at 86 in the shade) would
permit. Mulligan's bail was forfeited, and the Recorder
issued a bench warrant for his re-arrest.

The affair of Muruaga and Corcoran bus created deep in
terest. The White House, even yesterday, was the scene
of an interesting conversation with the President, Mr.
Corcoran, the Attorney General, Secretary of State, and
others, on the subject, it is rumored that Mr. Corcoran's
influence was sufficient to induce the government to no
tice the affair, but it is doing the President injustice to
suppose he would take up invidiously the difficulties of
any individual citizen, however resectable or wealthy,
while the laws are sufficient for the purpose. Tke matter
has been brought to the notice of Mr. Goddard, Justice of
the Peace, and probably Senor Muruaga will be brought
before him under a warrant issued upon the oath of Mr.
Corcoran, and held to keep the peace.

On the sth day of July, 1858, at or about lialf-
I past • o'clock in the afternoon, deponent was pas- ,
| sing the corner of Connecticut avenue at the inter
| section of II street: that, passing from said corner
to the south side of H street, opposite the residence
of W. W. Corcoran, Esq , his attention was attract
ed towards the front door of said Corcoran's resi
dence, where deponent saw said Corcoran stand
ing on his steps at said door, and at the same
| time deponent also saw E. de Muruaga, of the
j Spanish legation, on the pavement near the
front of the steps with a drawn and presented
pistol, the pistol being presented towards said
Corcoran, at the same time using violent lan
guage, leading this deponent to believe that said
assault was committed with the intention of pro
voking an assault in return by said Corcoran, by
drawing a pistol or otherwise, with the purpose
then of immediately killing said Corcoran, and
that, after said presentation of said pistol, the said
Muruaga slowly retreated backwards, along the
pavement, still using violent language; that this
deponent's attention was particularly drawn to the
parties from the commencement of the assault to
I its termination, with nothing to obstruct his view;

' 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.

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.

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.

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.
