She was received everywhere with the most extravagant demonstrations of respect and good will. Preparations were making for a royal visit to Leeds, on the return of the Queen from Germany. The world renowned steam-frigate Agamemnon, which j covered herself with glory in the laying of the telegraph 1 cable, had been on fire, hut f rtunately sustained little ; damage. There had been a collision between two excursion trains on the Oxford and Wolverhampton Railroad, involving j dreadful consequences. Several persons were killed, and a great many frightfully injured. The condition of the Thames river, the filthines* of j which has excited much remark, had been improved to some extent. Tlic notorious linroi- Ornisc, which was tixmoil hy Mr Rarey, is now performing in a circus. The accounts of the harvest are very satisfactory*. The late rains caused some delay in the gathering of the ' crops, but no permanent injury was done. The Universal Exhibition of Industry at Vienna has , been postponed. The treaty concluded with the Chinese does not confer I on the allies the right of having permanent diplomatic , agents at IVkin, hut the Consul Generals resident at !

THE RICE CROP.— We learn that the prospect of j a (rood viold of Rice this season is very promising, j Some of the planters on the Cape Fear have already ! commenced cutting, and others will begin next week, and weather permitting a full harvest is an ticipated. A severe gale now would prove very disastrous; the birds are now about making iiieii | annual attacks upon the tender grain, and in a few days more may be counted by millions over the | fieids; in fact, the warfare lias already commenced I upon them, judging bv the fusilade that comes i drifting across from Point Peter every morning. A i stranger can form no idea of the expense and trou i ble necessarv to keep the fields free of the little j marauder. "Keg after keg of gunpowder is con- j | suined, to say nothing of the wear and tear of fire j arms, for if the birds were let alone the planter ! would find a considerable falling off in his receipts j compared to his more prudent neighbors who had ] used these precautions to protect their fields. We j notice already a few bunches of birds in the mar- j ket. But it's too early yet; wait a week or so un- i til they become perfectly ripe, then order a few j | dozen and invite your friends —they'll come.— HTi- j • minflton Herald. The Central Georgian of Sept. Ist., says : | We continue to hear some complaint from our j planters, that the cotton crop is very much injured I by the rust. Some, however, do not think the in jury arises from the rust, but from some other ! cause, which we have not learned. The corn crops j aro much better than we have known them to be ! for several years, and our farmers have ceased, in j a great degree, to complain, as heretofore, about ] shortness of the corn crop; but each one seems to claim the credit of making more corn than his i neighbor. We are pleased to see them in such fine ! spirits. There is yet a large quautity of old corn j on hand. The Washington Slates says of the Oregon war | debt, which amounts to over $5,000,000: —A com ' bination of men, in high and low positions, eom | posed of bankers and, it is said, Senators, and their j ' abettors, are getting, or have already got. the con | trol of this immense claim, and will attempt to j | force it through Congress at the next session. - I These speculators, we understand, have had their agents at work in Oregon, buying up the different ] I claims against the Government, based on the most I extrar at/ant rates for a few cents on a dollar. The I facts before us, we think, will enable us to show up this whole matter in its true colors, and expose one ' of the greatest attempts to deplete Uncle Sam's treasury which has ever before been made. MINERALS IN TEXAS.— The Western Texan says I that travelers report that between San Antonio ' i and El Paso there are almost literally mountains of I iron in some places; and by building fires beside I the rocks, the pure ore will melt and run down in , puddles. In many places there are silver mines that were deserted years ago by the Spaniards, and " ' large boulders relied into the shaft—intending, of 5 ! course, to return when they could be protected ' from the Indians; but these mines have never since I been opened. CITY INTELLIGENCE. ' A CITY RAILROAD.-—ln the first branch of the City Coun ! cil. vest nlay afternoon, a petition was presented from ssrs Coleman Bailey, Jas. Mitchell, and Wm. Rob orison, omnibus proprietors, asking permission to lay down a railroad track from Franklin Square tofanton, by way of Baltimore street and Broadway. The petition sets forth that, as the public mind is turning into that channel, • from the favor with which these roads are held in other ! cities, it is evident that such an improvement will be made, ere long; and that such a work, by other parties, j would result both in the ruin of their business and the loss ! to them of the capital tliey now have invested in it; and they therefore ask to be permitted to lay the track for the use of horse cars, in order that they may he enabled thus j to invest such capital. The petition was referred to the , Committee on Highways. , ACCIDENT. —Yesterday afternoon, about 5 o'clock, as some of the mechanics employed upon the new I'ost office ' buildings were engaged in raising a heavy wootb n beam into its place, the scaffolding, some fifteen feet high, on which they were standing, gave way, owirg to the beam dropping too suddenly upon it. There were two persons on it at tin* time, one of whom escaped unhurt, the other, 1 named William Aliard, a carpenter, was precipitated to the floor, badly cutting ami bruising his right lrg below the knee, and spraining his left wrist. He was taken up hy hi* fellow-workmen and proper remedies applied to hi* wounds, after which he was removed in a carriage to his home. THE DRILL AT MCllF.NßY. —Yesterday morning a large , number of persons visited Fort McHenry to view the drill of the company of U. S. Flying Artillery, under command of Major Fr- nch, and also in expectation of seeing Lt. Gen. -'eott. who, it was announced last week, would be present, l.i the latter they were disappointed, as General Scott did not arrive in the city, detained, as is supposed, in New- York by the condition of affairs at Staten Island. The vast assemblage was. however, well repaid for their visit by witnessing the admirable and perfect drill of the troops now stationed at the Fort, and also by seeing the cxer cis-s of throwing bombs from the mortars at the targets, which was done with great exactness and precision. MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE —A white man in the em ploy of Mr. Roberts Wills, near Govanstown. was sent to thi* city on Friday last with an order for a barrel of flour and some groceries.

FOUND DEAD. —At an early hour on Sunday morning ! last, police officer Meads, discovered the corpse of a white i female child, only two or three hours old. lying in Forney j alley. neat-Green street. It was taken to the Western Dis j triet Police Station, where an inquest was held by Coroner Green tree. The jury rendering a verdict of death from ex j posure, by some one unknown. RAILROAD ACCIDENT. —The express passenger train on ; the Northern Central Railway, which was due here .at % past one o'clock yesterday, was detained about two hours by the breaking of an axle under the tender attached to the engine, when near Ashland Furnace, about fifteen miles from the city.

No business of public interest was transacted in tliere ! maining Courts. Dr. Rogers, a married man, was shot at Portland, Ky., by Mr. Alfred Whitlow, a few days since, for attempting to seduce Miss Whitlow, quite a young : lady, sister of the shooter. The prosecutor's attor -1 ney, Mr. Elliott, declined prosecuting Whitlow, saying that he and every other honorable man would have done the same thing under the circumstances. The case was dismissed on examination. A disturbance took place on board the Vanderbilt steamship Ariel, while lying at the dock in New York, just previous to sailing on Saturday, owing to a strike among the firemen. The steam-tug Young America accompanied her down the bay, with a police force on board, in order to suppress | any riot that might, occur. The Ariel took out i Iso passengers and $187,444.21 in specie. THE NEW YORK QUARANTINE ARSON. The Now York Tim' vof yesterday says: Quar antine affairs continued yesterday to engross much of public attention, and to form the chief staple of discussion and remark. Arragoincnts are made to erect a large building immediately for the tempora ry accommodation of the sick. Iron houses will be erected in place of those destroyed. The sick have been phuvd, some in tmits. others in a barn, and a large number sent to Ward's Island. They suffered very much during the heavy rains which prevailed on Saturday evening. Ray Tompkins, Justice Glias. Dc Forrest. Matthey Oarroll, Win. Muller, Jacob Yandcrhilt. Thomas Garrett and John Thompson were arrested and taken before Justice Welsh, upon a warrant charging them with aiding in the recent burning of the Quarantine buildings. Warrants were issued for about 150 more, but the above are all that have been arrest ed. They were hailed by Commodore Yandcrhilt. The frigate Sabine lias been anchored near the ship ping at Quarantine, by order of tlie Commodore at the Nav\ Yard, to afford any protection which may be required. At last accounts yesterday matters remained quiet, but there were some threats made to burn tin* infected district in Tompkinsville. One of the reporters of the Tribune who had made himself unpopular with tin* incendiaries at Toinkins ville. by a faithful exposure of their damning deeds on Thursday night, was assaulted in a cowardly manner by some of the Sepoys in that village on Saturday afternoon, just as he was about to take the boat for thD City. They pelted him with stale eggs, and threw a quantity of lh urupon his person. Hi- quietly remarked that the odor of the eggs was "rank and smelt to Heaven," hut it was ]>crf una compared with the moral stench which pervaded the atmosphere of the town. The Commissioners of Health met on Saturday and resolved to direct the Commissioners of Repairs and Supplies to procure 1.009 hemlock hoards and joists, and erect a temporary Hospital at Quaran tine. Dr. Thompson defended his course at Quar antine. It was resolved that the invaders of Quarantine should he prosecuted. The Commissioners of Emigration, at their meeting, Saturday, appointed Commissioners Yer phtuk and Cairigan, Committee to confer with the Mayor or Board of Health, regarding Quar antine matters. The propriety of erecting fire proof iron buildings at Qurrantine was spoken of. APIi: Alt A X'E (K QU AKAXTI NK. From the same journal we extract the following description of the scene presented on Sunday at the Quarantine grounds. It says: The hands of the Yandals at Staten Island were not raised in violation of law yesterday. With an exhibition of humanity which must have possessed all the novelty of a new sensation to the incendiaries, the sick were allowed to rest in the barn and tents provided for them, and to receive the attentions of the physicians, and ot Commissioner Gat rique and others, for their comfort and restoration. But the evidence of their villainous work was there in the tottering pillars in the Woman's Hospital: in its bro ken walls: in the blackened interior of the "dead house;" in the ruins of buildings, from which the sick were dragged and thrown out upon the damp ground amid the storm. In the destruction of or namental trees, and shrubs, and flowers: and of all that industry, experience and taste had devised to render the sullU'ffng immigrant as comfortable and pleasant as his condition would permit. The air of neatness, so agreeable to the invalid, was replaced by a desolation that was painful to look upon: and the quiet so necessary to successful treatment, of disease was broken by the noise of a camp filled with armed men. Around the walls there were thousands of specta tors climbing up, and in every possible way en deavoring to get a view of the ruin within. The breaches were exanrin d with great apparent curi osity, and the man. woman or child who could tell where the first sally was made, or where the treach erous firemen went through, to increase instead of to extinguish the flames, was sure of a crowd of eager and admiring listeners. The vigilance of the Police was a sore drawback upon the gratification of th * public curiosity. The main entrance was closely guarded; and if any had the temerity to scale the walls, they were summarily ejected. .lust inside the main entrance is the camp of the armed Police. On the right the Commissary (Jen oral has his quarters, with an inviting array of camp kettles, bread and cheese, and tureens of tur tle sou)), the principal ingredient of which is fur nished front the turtle pen of the Health Officer. Further along on the main road the tents of the Police are pitched, and from there they are detailed on sentinel duty around the walls and throughout the ground. From the tents of the Police until near the United States Government storehouse there is nothing but blighted trees and charred ruins. Be yond them, on the same line, are the marines sent down to guard the property of the United States Government, which they do by interfering with those who are engaged in earing for the sick, while their Captain hob nobs with the leader of the \ an dals, whom he brings to his quarters in a Govern ment boat, in violation of the expressed wish of the Health Officer of the port. On the rising ground the tents for the sick are ranged, and there those who have not been pro vided for elsewhere are attended. From that point vou command a view of the criminal work that has been done. From other points the ruins of one. two or three buildings are visible, but there you have the ruins of thirty-two edifices fully in view; and from there you can form the best idea of the extent of the injury that has been done, on can there see, in all their length and breadth, the degrading evidences of a deed more villainous, and as cruel, than you will care to dwell upon; and you can there regret that, while the Government has the power, it has not the inclination, to punish the offenders. Gathered in and around the Xautlius Hotel, thev laugh when punishment is spoken of. They allege that such act is not punishable in Richmond County, that there are not twelve men in it that would find them guilty, and that the political importance of the Island would protect them against molestation from the State authorities, he they Republicans, Americans, or Democrats. OFFICIAL SYMTA rm WITH THE RIOTERS, The conduct of a United States officer in com mand of the marines stationed at Quarantine is thus described: A strict guard is kept at the gate, and none are admitted in or out without apass from Dr. Waller. Mr. Locke, the United States Inspector, with ('apt. Rich, who has charge of the marines, made an effort yesterday to get Ray Tompkins admitted, under the pretext that they wished to have him dine with them. The gate-keeper, Captain Doyle, refused, however, to permit him to pass the gate. Captain Rich then went to Doctor Thompson, and asked of him permission for a friend to pass in whom he wished to dine with him. "Certainly," replied the Doctor, and immediately begun to write the necessarv pass. "What is the name of your friend?" he inquired. '-Mr. Ray Toinkins," an swered Rich. "1 cannot let in anv such man," said Dr. Thompson. "Will you put that in writing?" Rich inquired. Doctor T. said lie would, and im mediately gave him a note, certifying that Captain Rich had made a request to have ltay Tompkins j admitted to the Quarantine inelosure, and that the request was denied. This note, it is alleged, Captain Rich handed to the old gentleman at the gate as a pan*, saying, at the same time, "this is my friend," and made an , effort to get Tompkins through the gate. A per- 1 son near bv, who observed the imposition attempt ed to he practiced, told the gate keeper it was not a pass, bv which time lie had read the paper. This ruse having failed, Mr. Locke directed his boatmen j to go to the Quarantine Landing with the Lnited States barge, take Tompkins in. and land hint at the l nited States store house inside the Quaran tine limits. The order was obeyed, and Tompkins, j Rich and Locke, it is said, dined together. In the i course of two hours the same barge conveyed the party back to the Quarantine Landing. This flagrant disregard of the Quarantine authori ties by a United States ollicer, in the most offensive form, was severely commented on bv those who witnessed the transaction. Had the Health Officer observed the movement, and ordered the arrest of the intruder, it is more than probable it would have precipitated a collision between the Marines and the Police force. The law, of Congress of 17110, makes it the duty of United States Arinv and Navy officers to assist in tin* enforcement of Health laws uerorealt inner reifiiliiiloii,. This same Captain Uich interfered with Mr. Car rique in landing provisions at the United States storehouse deck for the sick, when there was no other convenient lawling-place, and forbid liiin from carrying patients past the storehouse, and taking theni away from the landing in a steamboat. His whole conduct since lie was sent to the place in charge of the Marines, has shown that his sympa thies were wholly with the lawless party. Another evidence of the sympathy between the authorities and the rioters, is to be found in the conduct of the Chief Kngineer of the New York Fire Department. The Times states that the large coal heap of 100 tons continues to burn fiercely. Mr. Carriqtie of the Commissioners of Emi gration, applied to Harry Howard to permit an En i gine Company to go down on the Staten Island ! boat, and put out the lire, in order to save part of the coal not yet burnt. Mr. Howard peremptorily i refused. As the Engine Company in the village | will not render the required assistance, the whole j will be destroyed. DEATH OF MATHEWS, THE WOUNDED STEVADOTIR. We also learn from the same journal that Mark ] Mathews, the stevadore, who was shot in the first j attack on the Hospital, lias since died from his i wounds. The deceased was a sailor, about 24 years j of age, and a native of Holland. lie had been em ployed at Quarantine about six weeks. PROOF OK CONSPIRACY. From the Herald, which has not pretended to I disguise its cordial sympathy with the rioters, we | obtain the following revelation of the plans of the ! conspirators. That journal says : We have been informed, and from pretty good I authority, that it was arranged to burn the Quar j antine buildings on the night following the destruc j tion of the City Hall and the first cable celebration, and that as soon as it was announced that the first ; of September was to be set apart for a second de monstration. it was concluded by certain parties j on the island that on thatniglit they would under take the work. Among the ringleaders were some ten influential i citizens, all property holders, many owning land I in the immediate neighborhood of the grounds. A meeting was held on the second night, following the burning of the City Hall, at the residence, it is i said, of one of the party who was arrested on Sat urday last. About twenty were present at this meeting, and many propositions were made as to the best way the work should be done. Xo definite arrangements, however, were made at this meeting, owing to a desire that a certain party who was not present should be consulted in the matter.— At their next meeting, which was held at a | private residence on the hill, it was announced ' that as arrangements were being made in New York to have a tremendous celebration in honor of laying the Atlantic cable on the first of* September, there • could never be a more favorable opportunity af- j forded them to destroy the buildings. It win also re marked by one of the parties present—a keeper of a saloon at Tompkinsville— that the fi. emeu's pa rade would be the means of taking a very huge number of the citizens to the city, and that the fer ry boat had agreed to make a night trip on that evening, leaving the city at 11 o'clock. Whether application had been made to the ferry company to . run a boat on the above night, it is not known, but we have been informed that a communication to j that efleet was sent to the Superintendent, signed i by several citizens, some of them connected with ! the work of burning the buildings. Wednesday night, the Ist of September, was fully agreed upon at the last named meeting for the work ; to be carri' d out. Several propositions were made that thev should disguise themselves, so that if seen by any person connected with the Quarantine, they j would not be known. This was overruled, as many . of those present, 1> -ing members of the fire depart- 1 in en t, claimed that if one of the buildings could be successfully fired without the party being seen, thev could all then make their appearance, and in their fire dress, would no doubt be looked upon as being present only to aid in putting- out the lire; but I whenever an opportunity offered they were to lire j the other buildings. This was agreed upon, but none of the engines ' were to be worked unless some of the buildings out- ! side the Quarantine grounds took tire. On Sunday night, August 29, another private meeting was held at one of the public houses, but a short distance from the Quarantine entrance, when the final arrangements were perfected. A commit tee was appointed to procure a quantity of turpen tine, which was purchased at a wholesale drug store i in Greenwich street on Moiidav last. Any persons who were likely to be opposed to their movements, were questioned during the pre vious week as to their intention of visiting the city I on the above night, and it was hy this means they , became pretty well posted as to who were likely to remain on the island on the night in question. It was also found that two or three of the doctors at tached to the hospitals were going up, and quite a j number of those employed on the grounds. In fact, i every thing that could he thought of was carried I out so as to perfect their arrangements. At seven o'clock on Monday night it was known hy them every person who was in Tompkinsville—so thor oughly had thev kept their spies at work. A persort, whom, it is said, has some connection 1 with Castle Garden, urged the hurtling of th" j buildings at an early hour, so that they would be pretty well destroyed before the boat arrived from the city. It was thought that thev would be ena- j hied to burn every building on Wednesday night. . and intended to have fired the shanties first, as the flames from tlietn would be more likely to set fire to j the other buildings. It was anticipated that thev ( would not have to sot lire to over two or three ; buildings, as the remainder would catch from the i burning buildings. It was on this account that all the buildings were not destroyed that night. The work of firing the small pox hospital was done hy three persons only, though there were over fifty outside the walls, to see that no harm was done them. It was reported that there were over five hundred who were engaged in the work, loir this is not so. There were not above twenty in all ! who concocted the thing, and about fifty who were | made aware of the fact that evening, and requested to be on hand. As it was well known that over two-thirds of the eiti/.ensof the island are opposed to the present location of the Quarantine, the above . party knew well that they would soon have a large , force to aid them, but who, at the time, it was ; thought n>t best to trust until the work had com menced. This proved to he the fact, for when i many persons, who bad no knowledge of the burn- j ing of the buildings that night, discovered them <>n ; fire, they armed themselves a: d joined in the work Half an hour after the fire broke out the ringlead ers could command a force of over six hundred ( strong to aid them. When it was found on the following morning I that only half the buildings had been consumed, a meeting of a portion of the twenty was again called together, shortly after daylight, at the same public ! house, and.many doubted if they could ever get a party together again to finish the work. It was, ! however, suggested by one of tin? party (who was ' arrested and held to hail by Justice Welsh that a meeting should be called that evening at Bunts' t Nautilus Hall) which is located directly oppo.-ite the Quarantine entrance, for a meeting of the citi zens, with the pretence that it was for making arrangements to celebrate the destruction of the buildings. This was agreed upon, and accordingly ' bills were stuck up shortly after ten o'clock that morning around the steamboat landings, with the following printed in large letters: "A meeting of the citizens of Richmond county will be held at Nautilus il tll. Tompkinsville, this evening, Sept. 2, at 7 1 ■_> o'clock, for the purpose of making arrangements to ecleheate the burning of j the shun* its and hospitals at the Quarantine ground : last evening, and to transact such other business as may come before the meeting. "Sept. 2, 1558." This was only done for the purpose of getting the crowd together again, and then, with a word from one or two of the ringleaders, they could excite the ! mob to such an extent that the work could be re sumed that night. This was accordingly done, the facts of which we 1m ve alrejuH published. The work of firing the buildings was left to four persons: hut one of them, it is said, failed t> b • on hand. They were each, we are informed, paid SSOO that night, and have each a written agreement that j if they should be arrested the party employing tlietn were to stand by them and defray all the expenses : and if arrested that night they were to he rescued. Two of the originators of the affair are said alsj to have backed out on the first, night and cauie up to the city, where tliey remained. The report that arrangements were made to take the sick to a safe and comfortable building is entire ly untrue. It was agreed that every effort should be made to rescue them, and that unlives should he lost at all hazards, hut wh n they were all got out they were to he carried only a respectable distance from the burning buildings and laid upon the , Another meeting was to he held on Sunday, hut we have been unable to lea-n what was don •. Their . movements will no doubt be kept very secret. FROM HAYTI.

Thestateof the relations between our government and those of nearly all the Spanish-American re publics is in a singularly uniform but at the same time anomalous condition. General Her ran has presented the ratified C'ass- Herran treaty to the State Department, with the modifications inserted by the Congress of New Gra nada. There is nothing particularly objectionable in these, except the unfriendly feeling which they evince towards this country. No definite action will be taken upon it by our government until the approach of the session of Congress. General .leap?:, the nn.v minister from Virarajnm. has not been received because be could give no offi cial explanation of the singular course pursued by bis. government in regard to the Cass \ risarri trea ty, and the odious declaration appended to the Kel ly contract. A strong note of instructions has been sent to General Lamar, which lie is directed to read to the Secretary of State at Managua. It is supposed that l the only way for Nicaragua to get out of her pend ing troubles with this government, is for President Martinez to resign the Presidency, and for a new President there to change the policy ol that gov ernment and give the necessary satisfaction. With Mexico diplomatic relations are virtually closed. Our Minister in that capital lias been or dered to close the delegation and return home, and Senor Rubles, the Mexican Minister here, lias been j gone several weeks on a temporary visit to his goy- I eminent. A vessel of war has been ordered to visit I the Pacific ports of Mexico, and others will be kept at hand to present themselves before the Gulf ports, I if the protection of our citizens should require it. — I 110 *h.

PRICE TWO CENTS FOREIGN. A XnVELTY IN SLIM'IiCILIHNO. A StCARI vessel, named the Connector, says a Manchester paper, is attracting great attention, owing to the peculiar features of her construction. She is built of iron, and is in three distinct compartments, each being connected with the other by means of their socket like shape at the ends, and firmly secured by means of longitudinal movable iron bands on the outside. The stcrnmost portion is appropriated to the en gine-room and captain's cabin, and the forepai t to the forecastle, Ac. The middle portion is devoted to the purposes of the hold, and may, in a lew* minutes, be detached from the fore and aft por tions. The steamer is to take in a cargo of coals for the London market. She has been built as an experiment, for the purpose of proving the feasibility of the scheme of the inventor, which con sists in having a vessel so constructed, that when the demand in the market is inactive, the cargo may be cast off. another hold attached, and the vessel immediately return to her loading port for another cargo, thus avoiding the loss of time and expense incurred in waiting for a market. The steamer is about ninety feet long, and nine feet broad, being a remarkably narrow beam. She was built at Green wich, by the Messrs. Joyce, and it is intended, should the experiment prove satisfactory, to build a vessel on a similar plan, of 2JUOO ton burthen. A strange affair has occurred at Constantinople: A resident physician, Dr. Salloni, an Austrian, was called in to prescribe for the favorite wife of a great Turkish personage, and on questioning her in the liarem. lie found that she w as suffering from an in flammation of the bowels, lie slightly touched with his finger the part affected: on which an eunuch, who was in attendance, misinterpreting the act, rushfd on him, knocked him down, ami beat him until he was half dead. The woman's husband, hearing the noise, hurried in, and being told what had taken place, stabbed the physician in the thigh with a dagger. The blow was so violent that tbe weapon broke. Tbe wounded physician, bathed in blood, was removed to the street and left to get liome as well as he could. Dr. Zalloni, a few days after, died of the injuries which he bad received. While laborers in the county of Kilkenny, Ire land. are engaged in a crusade against machinery, as the prime cause of distress in that quarter, the Tuain llcrnhl announces that in the west the scale has already turned in their favor. From being a drug in the market, they are become so scarce that they can almost command their own terms. The agricultural demand in England, too, adds to the scarcity, ami induces thousands of the peasantry of Mayo and Galway to migrate to that country, to the great discomfort of the Irish farmers. A Dutch commercial firm, Messrs. Spengler Co.. lias established a branch house at Deciuia, in .Japan. The fact of a private firm establishing it self at the seat of the former Dutch factory shows that the monopoly hitherto maintained by the Dutch government lias been definitely abolished. A ukase has been promulgated prohibiting tbe teaching of the Latin tongue in all the colleges of the Russian empire. The hours hitherto devoted to that study will be devoted to the positive sciences! There is less water in the rivers of France than any body remembers to have seen. Many of the mills have stopped, and those situated on larger streams are not able to do more than half the usual amount of work. Tbe drought is so great in tbe province of Arra gon, Spain, that the fields have to be watered, and the peasantry light with each other to obtain water from the Kbro. There is a talk of an expedition against Madagas car by a combined English and French force, to punish tlif piracies of which the savages of that is land have been guilty. Reliable information from Naples speaks of the growing disaffection in the ranks of the native army. A member of the Sydney Jockey Club lias named a favorite horse the ''Reverend Spurgeon." WASHINGTON, Sept. fith.—The passenger train which left I'altimore this morning at 4.30, came near meeting a serious disaster a few* miles past Laurel factory. Some abandoned miscreant had placed about lialf-a-dozen cross ties directly on the track. The cow-catcher sufficed to throw aside a portion of thein. Two of the tics passed between the cow catcher and the rail and lifted the engine, which was fortunately stopped before the w heels reached ♦ lie obstruction, and was thus saved from running off the track. Jleavy jacks were used to lift the en gine ami take out the'logs. The train, proceeding onto Reltsville, "switched oft*" u-.til the Washing ton train had passed and then came in, arriving at the depot about half-past f o'clock—three quarters of an hour behind time. Patrick Lynch, one of the laborers noticed some days since as having been injured while digging the trench near Wiilard's Hotel by the caving in of the bank of earth, has since died. A eiMUNTMEN is.

NEW* YORK, Sept. f#. —There seems to be a pros pect of new troubles in the Democratic ranks, growing out of the recent Tammany Hall proceed ings relative to the appointment of Inspectors of primary elections. Opposing sets of delegates to Syracuse, and split tickets in each ward seem to be assured. The operators in Vicarugunn stock had a very ph'Msant excursion to Sandy Hook on Saturday afternoon on board tin? Cass-Yrissari, formerly the American Eagle. Mr. .1. L.

The Cass-N ris sari left yesterday, and the other boats will be ready, and sail on Wednesday and Saturday ot this week. In Salt Lake city an interesting ease has been before Judge Eckels for three days, on a writ of habeas corpus, brought on behalf of an Englishman, named Polvdore, to recover the custody of his daughter, who was carried to Utali by her mother, and was then in the family of one of the Mormon elders. The girl was delivered up to the United Slates Marshal, to be returned to her father. A Havana correspondent of the Charleston Cour ier writes: "There are five Spanish men-of-war sunk just iii the mouth of this harbor.Two ot them have been there ever since the British forces achieved the conquest of this Island. I learn, from reliable authority, that an American engineer bus made an oil' r of twent v-seven thousand dollars for the five ships and their contents to the aulharitics of this island. The bodv of Mr. James Miller, formerly Mayor of Newark was discovered Saturday evening in the dock at the foot of lleekman street. Mr. Miller left his home to attend the Cable celebration in Jersey City on Tuesday evening last. He was suffering loin mental aberration, caused by losses in busi ness. and it is supposed that in this condition he either committed suicide or accidentally fell into the water anil was drowned.
