'Uoiu'.irii anb Mcto. BALTIMORE, October 5, 1858. At the Stock Board to-day the transactions were exceedingly small, the only sale of Railroad shares bein" - shares of Baltimore and Ohio at $54% regu lar way. closing about the same as yesterday at sss' i bid, $55% asked cash. After the Board sales took place of 400 shares at $55% cash, short time, and seller's option 60 days, and 55% buyer 50 days. For Northern Central $20% was bid, $20% asked, regular way, at the close, % lower than yesterday. Springfield Mining is held at $2.56, and Santa Clara Mining at $20% with sl9 bid. The only sale of Bank stock was 50 shares Franklin at sll%@sll%. Baltimore city G's 1890 are a trifle weaker, S9OO selling at 95%@98, and we note a sale of S2OO Bal timore s's at 80. Northern Central 1885'3 are steady, with sales at 67%, the same as last rate. In Balti more and Ohio Railroad bonds there was nothing doing; 1885's were held at 83 and 1875's at 85% with Bft offered. Fancy stocks at New York to-day advanced ma terially, and the market closed firm. Erie im proved 1%; New York Central 1%; Reading %; Cleveland and Toledo 1%; Rock Island %, and Michigan Southern %. Lacrosse and Milwaukee fell off %. The New York Tribune of to-day says: There is no remarkable feature in the Rank statement to-day; excepting the decrease of the specie line, which, although it was small, was unexpected, the general im pression being that there would be an increase of quarter to half a million on the California receipt counted for three days. The general movement has been without interest, the decrease in loans and deposits con tinuing but only to moderate extent. The loans fell off about _ half a million under the maturity of paper and the inability to use profitably the accumulating receipt*. The actual deposits show a decline of only about $200,000. This, however, in the face of the deposits of California gold, is as much as was an ticipated. The Suffolk Rank of Boston has been drawing freely on its balance here, to maintain itself in the con test going on with the New England Ranks, and this ac counts for a considerable loss in deposits. The Rank bal ances generally, as far as we can learn, have not been dis turbed. The following is a onmpnrative statement of the condi tion of the Banks of the City of New York for the week ending September 25 and October 2: Sept. 2ft. Oct. 2.

Mr. Schumacher, the president, opened the pro ceedings with an address. Messrs. Robert Henning and Richard Unger, delegates from St. Louis, ap peared and took their seats. Several spirited speeches, setting forth the wrongs which emigrants from Europe to this country suffered,"and urging the necessity of measures of protection, were made, and the dralt of a petition to Congress on the subject was adopted. The petition asks Congress to enact a law for the protection of female passen gers from the outrages now so common; compelling the separation of the sexes on board of emigrant ships, except in the case of married couples—and obliging owners and masters of vessels to account tor and guaran tee the safe delivery of property belonging to per sons who may die on the passage. It was also re solved that every emigrant ship carrying one hun dred or more steerage passengers, should have a competent physician on board, able to prepare and compound the medicines required in treating cases of sickness. A communication was received from the Hon. John Cochrane, stating that at the next session of Congress he would advocate the passage of a law to effect the objects desired by the Conven tion. At the evening session, Mr. Schumacher re signed his position as President, and Mr. Kaufman, of the Xew York Society, was elected in his stead. After some further action, in promotion of the views of the Convention, it adjourned to meet yesterday morning. THE VIRGINIA CATTLE REGION. — The Abingdon 1 'irginian, of the 2d inst., speaking of the bad pros pect for the drovers in that section, says : We have exceedingly gloomy accounts from Eas tern Virginia and the"Valley. The want of grass, the scarcity ot money, and the low price of beef, all stare the drovers in the face. We have been in formed that last year's cattle, after being fattened for market, bring little if any more than their cost. Consequently, not half the usual number will be driven. We have a letter now before us from a Russell drover, who is doing the best he can in the Valley, but expresses the fear that he will be com pelled to return with his stock. lie says the most he has been offered is 2% cents. Forty-nine of the camels belonging to the United States are now at Campe Verde, sixty miles from San Antonio. Onlv one of those imported has died, while ten have been added by birth. These young American born camels thrive well, and promise to grow up equal in all respects to those imported. Notwithstanding the successful trial lately made by Captain Beale in his explorations across the continent, there are some officers of the army who doubt whether anything is to be gained by the use of camels. We hope, however, that ex periments in their use will not long be confined to the armv officers, but that as the number increases they will pass into the bands of private owners.— -V. Y. Tribune. ALLEGHENY COCNTY.— The Cumberland Civilian says: The October term of Allegheny County Cir cuit Court, begins on Monday next, the 11th inst. A large amount of business is entered on the docket, and it is thought the session will be continued about six weeks. The canal pump will be put in running order again this evening, so we are told by officers of the canal. This will materially raise the water in the canal from the pump down to the dam, but the greatest difficulty to boating is on the level next to Cumberlend which of course the pump cannot bene fit. At last we have an admiral in the Navy. The Naval Department has just decided that naval cap tains, when in charge of expeditions similar to that now about to start for South America, shall be justified in assuming the title of, and to be enti tled to the honors and salutes of an Admiral. Ac cordingly, Admiral Shubrick now flies his broad pennant at the fore, instead of the main, where l ankee Commodores have hitherto located their pennants. Ex President Comonfort, of Mexico, is in Massa chusetts. He visited the Encampment of the First Division on Friday, the day of the review by Gov ernor Banks. ' LATEST NEWS. TELEGRAMS RECEIVED AT THE OFFICE OF THE DAILY EXCHANGE. ARRIVAL OF THE HAMMONIA. NEW YORK, October 5. —The steamer Hammonia, with London dates to the 22d, arrived here this morning.

MARYLAND INSTITUTE EXHIBITION. —The eleventh annual exhibition of the Maryland Institute com menced last evening, the opening being inaugura ted, in the presence of a vast concourse of our citi zens, by a grand concert by the Independent Blues' Band,under the direction of Capt. Holland. From the time of the opening to the closing of the doors the spacious hall was thronged, and the gratifica tion we heard expressed on all sides, attested that the pledge of those having it in charge, to render this exhibition a peculiarly interesting one, has been fully redeemed. Every room in the building that can be appropriated thereto is filled with works of almost every conceivable character of art. The charge of keeping order has been en trusted to Messrs. Theodore Woodall and Francis 'f. McKinly, both of whom are experienced in such matters. The front room upon the second story has been appropriated to the uses of a refreshment saloon, and tastefully fitted up with that view by the Gil mour Brothers, who will superiutend the same. They have on exhibition a work of wonderful skill in the way of a mammoth fruit cake. The base or first layer thereof is six feet in diameter and one foot thick, and the second layer four and a half feet in diameter, and of nearly the same thickness. This portion is tastefully decorated with roses and flowers of various kinds and every hue, made of sugar. The whole is surmounted with acupola orspiresix feet in height, in imitation of that surmounting St. Alphonsus Church, and the whole formed of sugar. The cake and ornamental work is about eight, feet in height, and weighs 2,500 pounds. The Messrs. Gihnour yesterday morning celebrated their success in pre paring this beautiful work, by handsomely entertain ing a large company of those in charge of, and in attendance at the Fair, as exhibitors. The machinery department is well supplied, from manufacturers in every section of the country, and will be found exceedingly interesting. Although the motive power is ready'for use, it will require a few days more to put the entire machinery in run ning order. A portion of it was started last even ing. It is anticipated that all the goods on exibi tion will be regularly arranged by this evening. OUTRAGEOUS ASSAULT. —Yesterday morning about ten o'clock, James Baldwin,residing on Fleet street, between Caroline and Spring.streets, was on his way to a pump for a bucket of water, when he was ap proached in the rear by five men, one of whom struck him on the back part of the head with a hilly, inflicting a severe wound. He lay upon the ground in an unconscious state and remained so for some time after he had been car ied to his home.— The assault was entirely unprovoked, and the par ties not satisfied with the injury they had inflicted upon the man proceeded to his residence, broke the front windows and threatened his family with vio lence. Mr. Baldwin is not able to "give their names, but states that he can identify them by sight. A physician was called in who dressed the wound, but Mr. B. is now confined to bed from the effects of it. The same party earlier in the day at tacked a German near the same place, beating him severely. X r o arrests were made. BURNING OK SCHOONER DUNKIRK. —The schooner Dunkirk, engaged in running between this port and York river, took fire on Sunday last and was en tirely destroyed. The lire originated from a quan tity of lime, which was stored in the bottom of the boat. Whilst the vessel was off a bar in South river, she sprung aleak and the water reaching the lime set it on fire, and all efforts to extinguish it were vain. Part of the cargo, consisting of 100 bags of guano and 4 kegs of powder, together with a portion of the rigging were saved. The Captain and crew were compelled to leave in the yawl boat. The cargo of the boat consisted of dry goods, 17 tons of guano, and five kegs of powder, and the Captain, who arrived in this city on Monday even ing, states the loss to be $150,000. One of the kegs of powder exploded, which hastened the destruction of the vessel. She was owned by farmer's residing on York river, and on her last trip to the city, was consigned to Messrs. McConkey, Parr & Co. FAST DRIVING. —On yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock a young man was arrested at the corner of South and Baltimore streets, by officers Maloney and Rote, for driving in a violent manner through the streets. When crossing the Gay street bridge, two ladies came near being seriously injured by the vehicle. There were two young men in, one of whom was standing up whipping the horse as hard as he could, and officer Joshua Mitchell endeavored to overtake them, but they were too fast. When they were stopped one of them sprang from the wagon and escaped. The other was taken to the Station House, where he gave his name as Thomas Swann, of the 17th ward, but afterwards gave that of John Kelley. RUNAWAY. —About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, Mr. Samuel Jordan, one ot the city letter carriers, entered the Fell's Point Saving Institution, leaving his horse and buggy in charge of a lad about thir teen years of age. Shortly after his entering, the horse became frightened, and ran off. The boy en deavored to use the reins, but failed to stop him, and in running down Broadway, the wheels struck against the curb corner of Canton avenue, over turning the buggy, throwing out the boy, letters and newspapers. The horse was stopped at the corner of Alice Anna and Bethel streets, and the buggy was broken to pieces. The boy was not seriously injured. SERIOUS ACCIDENT. —A man named William Kal tenback, who is engaged at the Baltimore Gas Works', met with an accident, yesterday morning, by which he may probably lose his life.

He was taken to his residence, on Hughes street near Williams, wherehe was attended by three physicians, but they could do nothing for him. During the afternoon Prof. X. R.

After a short absence she returned, but found that her con veyance had been appropriated by another party. A young gentleman, a cousin of the lady's, saw a stranger driving the horse down Calvert street, recognized the animal, but was not aware at the time ot the manner in which the driver had gained possession of it. Late in the afternoon it was dis covered in front of Dr. Frick's, on Charles street, and returned to the owner.

He was committed for Court by Justice Mearis. LAW INTELLIGENCE. CRIMINAL COURT. —Hon. Henry Stump, Judge.— Milton Whitney, Esq., State's Attorney, prosecu ting. The following business occupied the Court yesterday: W. H. Cowan, Esq., one of the counsel for the de fence in the case of William G Ford, charged with the murder of Thomas 11. Burnham, arose and stated to the Court that the original entry of the verdict upon the docket, on the night previous, was simply the words "Guilty of murder" and nothing more. He understood," however, that since then, the record had been changed, and the verdict now recorded stands in the words "Guilty of mur der in the first degree;" lie contended that the al teration had been made without authority and asked that the Court should direct that the record be corrected aud the verdict put in the same form as originally entered,upon the rendition of the same. Mr. Cowan also said that the defence had filed a motion in arrrest of Judgment, and took the ground that the verdict had been illegally ren dered by the Jury, because the grade of crime had not been specified by them when their verdict was given to the Court. Mr. Gardner, Clerk of the Court, stated that .the alteration had been made in his absence. _ Mr. Schley, the assistant Clerk, remarked to the Court, that on the night previous, when the Jury returned into Court, lie had put the usual qnestio'n to them in this form, "Gentlemen of the Jury, what say you. is William G. lord, guilty of the "matter whereof he stands indicted, or not guilty," that the Jury, through their foreman, replied "Guiltv," that Mr. Hack being present, then requested that the Jury should be polled, which was done, and each one asked if the prisoner was guilty of murder in the first degree, when they each replied in the affirmative; he then entered the verdict as it is now recorded, "Guilty of murder in the first degree." Mr. Hack begged leave to deny the statement of Mr. Schley, and said he was present when the jury was polled, and they simply answered the question put to them by the Clerk, with the word "Guiltv;" he could substantiate what he said by the evidence of several gentlemen who were present with him when the verdict was rendered. The defense wished the verdict to be entered on the record as the jury had given it; the Clerk has defined the grade of murder, doing that which the jury left undone. Mr. Whitney contended that it was not necessa ry for the Jury to have rendered their verdict in any other form; the verdict of "guilty" upon the indictment was sufficient; that the charge made in the original entry, did not invalidate the legality of the verdict. The entry made by the Clerk is no record of this Court; it is a mere minute of the pro ceedings, which can be corrected, under the direc tion of the Court, as the law contemplates that all records are made under the eye and by the sanction of the Court. Mr. Cowan said the defense only wanted the entry to remain as the verdict had been rendered. Judge Stump said the jury had been asked whether the prisoner "was guilty or not guilty of the matter whereof he stands indicted," and they had replied "guiltv;" they were then polled at the request of Mr. Hack, and each one then answered "guilty." Guilty of whtlt? of the matter whereof he stands indictetl; he had been indicted for wilful and premeditated murder; the verdict as rendered was sufficient. The Court will allow the record to remain as it is. The case of the State re. Henry Gambrill, indict ed for the murder of police officer Thomas H. Ben ton, had been fixed for trial yesterday. Mr. Pitts, one of the counsel for the prisoner, stated to the Court that the defense were not ready to go to trial, and moved a postponement for two weeks, which was agreed to upon the part t f the State.— The tiial is fixed for the 18th inst. State e. Henrv Duvall, indicted jointly with John Lemmon, John Siglefousand a white man unknown, for the murder on the 18th of September last, of Christian Fischer, bv shooting him with a pistol in the right side of the breast, was arraigned and plead "not guilty." State vs. John J.cmmon, indicted jointly with others, for the same offense, was arraigned and plead "not guilty." State vs. John Stevens, alias John Cyplnrs, (ne gro) indicted for the murder of William Henry King, (negro) by stabbing him with a knife, in the left side of the breast, was arraigned and plead "not guilty." State vs. Henry Burns, who is charged with an assault with intent to kill police ollicer French, was recently brought here from Washington and con fined in jail; John Dickson became his security, against whom an attachment had been issued. Mr. Whitney stated that as Burns was now in jail appli cation was made to release his security on payment of the costs of the attachment. The Court, there fore, ordered the release. After this W. C. X. Carr, Esq., remarked to the Court that there were 3 indictments against Henry Burns; one charging him with an assault with intent to kill police ollicer French, another charging him with the murder of Sergeant William Jordan, and a third charging him with rioting; and asked the Court to fix the bail required on each of these charges. Mr. Whitney objected to any bail being taken at all; he said the indictments against Burns had been found during the year 1857, that when the case against Burns for the assault with intent to kill had been called, he did not appear in Court, that a bail piece was then issued for his arrest, and since that time he had left the State, and escaped arrest, until he had committed some of fence in Washington and been there arrested and confined. He was now brought here upon a re quisition from the Governor to answer the charge of murder, and he considered that there was enough evidence to convict him of the charge, he therefore protested against any bail being taken in the case. The Court remarked that it would demand se curity in the sum of SII,OOO, to answer the charge of murder, and S7OO each on the other charges. Mr. Whitney.—The amount of bail before for the charge of assault with intent to kill, was SI,500; does your Honor now reduce the bail because he ran awav ? Judge Stump.—He has not been bailed before. Mr. Whitney.—You have just released his securi ty of $1,500, upon payment of costs of the attach ment. Judge Stump.—l do not recollect it. Mr. Whitney.—lf your Honor does not recollect it, I certainly cannot refresh your memory. The recognizances of Phillip Waters and Isaac Gantz, were forfeited. The Court then adjourned until this morning at 10 o'clock. COURT OF COMMON PLEAS. —Hon. William L. Mar shall, Judge. The Court was engaged in the fol lowing cases yesterday: F. L.

From the facts as they at present appear, it seems that a company of Irish men were atti acted to the lager beer resort in ques tion, by hearing at a distance the music which was there discoursed. On arriving at the depot, it is ajfeged that Michael Ronrke, one of the number,'entered the garden and commenced dancing to the music. This gave no offence to the Italians, and the musicians played for Rourhe's benefit Yankee Doodle, Hail Columbia, and other national airs. Rourke contin ued to dance, and in doing so it is alleged that lie maliciously ran against one of the Italian women, and pushed her over. At this the Italians became very indignant, and several of them ran from their seats for the purpose of ejecting the obnoxious in dividual. Rourke was hustled into the street with much force, when his companions outside rushed into the garden and commenced an assault upon the Italians. A frightful _ collision was the immediate conse quence, and in a moment every man of the contend ing factions was engaged in the fight. Knives, pistols and other deadly weapons were freely used, and apparently every man seemed determined to take the lifeofhis opponent. In afew minutcsafter the commencement of the tight one Michael Culli gan received a frightful stab in the inside'of the thigh, the weapon severing a main artery, and he bled to death in a few minutes, before medical aid could reach liirn. Edward Burns was stabbed in the back, Michael Rourke received a stab in the head, and Patrick 1 racy was awfully cut in the groin. The three last named it is feared will die from the wounds they have received. Owinj* to the large number engag ed in the riot, and the great excitement which pre vailed at the time, it is almost impossible to ascer tain who the parties are' who used the deadly wea pons. During the riot a large number ol' pistol shots were fired by the Italians, but it does not ap pear that any one was dangerously wounded from fire-arms. Aimost immediately after the trouble commenced officer Merrill, of the 19th precinct, was on hand and arrested one of the rioters, who was rescued fil m him by the Italians. With all possible haste \wnd was sent to the station house, when Sergeants 3 an Lrunt and Decker went to the riot with a large force of men, and succeeded in arrest'inf sixteen Italians, one American and two Germans, who were taken to the station house and locked up to await an investigation by Coroner Gamble on Monday morning. Mr. Joseph 3 coinans found a double bar relled pistol which had been thrown away bv one of the rioters in his flight. From information received by the police, they were led to believe that this garden was the resort of Italian thieves, and was a "fence" for the recep tion of stolen property. They therefore searched it, and found a wagon load of property which, about three weeks ago, had been stolen from the house of Alderman MeSpendon. This consisted of clotbino-, silverware, Ac. They also found the proceeds of two burglaries, which had been committed in the neighborhood within a short time. Pistols, clubs, slung shots and burglars tools of every variety, to gether with various kinds of stolen goods, "were found concealed in different parts of the premises, and removed to the Nineteenth Ward Station House. The proprietor of the place and some of liis assist ants were among the parties arrested. THE SCUTTLED SHIPAT MONTAUK POINT. About two weeks ago information first reached this city, that a vessel had been sunk off' Montauk Point, under circumstances which ought naturally to arouse suspicion as to the character of the ship and the designs of the party scuttling her. United States Marshal Renders, immediately on receiving this information,'despatched Deputy'De Ansrelis, to Sag Harbor, to ascertain what fact's he could in re gard to the matter. Mr. De Angelis shortly re turned, and reported that a large fine clipper" shin had been scuttled off Montauk Point; the crew had dispersed into different parts of the country, with the exception of one, who had died of the African fever and been buried at New London. Marshal Rynders, upon hearing these facts, dispatched De puties O'Keefe and Theodore Rynders, in search of the crew of the scuttled ship. They were not long in finding out that three of the men were in this city. A sharp lookout was kept on these men till early last week, when they were arrested and im prisoned. The fact of their arrest was kept secret., so that those who were still at large would not ho put on their guard and abscond from justice. The names of those who were engaged in the expedition were gained, and upon further information, and after consultation with the United States District Attor ney, Marshal Rynders concluded to send the depu ties to Boston in search of the remainder of the crew. On arriving at Boston the deputies found two more of the crew, who were placed in tempo rary charge of the proper authorities. The officers then went to New Bedford, near which place they arrested the first mate, at his house. The mate's name is Macomber, and he was in command when the vessel was sent t here. The deputies then returned to Boston and fell in with several very amiable personages, who were so sociable to the officers that thev began to suspect their character and designs. Their suspicions were right, for they learned shortly afterwards that these gentlemen were friends of the slavers, and had ob tained a writ ot habeas corpus to serve upon them, for the purpose of having the prisoners brought up. A hack was procured, and the deputies and their prisoners jumped in. Jehu cracked his whip, and off they fiew to the railroad station, which they reached just in time to take the cars for New York, successfully escaping the service of the writ upon them. They arrived earlv on Sunday morning, and at once proceeded to Marshall Render's resi dence in Henry street, and he ordered the prisoners to be locked up in Eldridge street jail, to await ex amination. The prisoners keep very silent on the matter, so that but little information has been obtained from them. We are, however, able to give the following facts in regard to the matter: —lt has hoen stated that the name of the scuttled ship is "Elizabeth, of New Orleans." Such is not the case. Her proper name is "Haidee, of New York." The reason why she was published in the newspapers a few days since as the Elizabeth, of New Orleans, is very readily explained by the fact that the persons scut tling her had nailed a piece of canvass upon her stern, upon which was painted in large letters, "Elizabeth, of New Orleans." The Haidee sailed from this port in January last for Gibraltar. From Gibraltar she went to Cadiz, and from Cadiz to the coast of Africa. There she took in a cargo of slaves and made for the West India Islands. She landed them—93o in number— near Cardenas, in the island of Cuba. The vessel thence sailed for Havana, where the captain, owners of the ship and cargo, left her. Nottiing has been heard of them since, and nothing is now known as to their whereabouts. The mate, Macomber, and the r crew, were sent out to sea in the vessel; the mate took charge of her as captain. He told the crew when they started that they were going to New Orleans. After the first day out he told them the ship had no papers, so he did not know where they were gotng. He asked them what they had better do, or where they had better go. They told him that they did not care wh re they went; that he could go where he had a mind to. The mate then steered north, and made Montauk Point, Long Island, in the afternoon. The parties then tacked, and stood out from land till after dark, then approached the shore, scuttled the ship by boring holes in hcrsides, took the boats, and went ashore, one boat in one direction, the other boat in another. The sailors are Portuguese, the mate is an Amer can. The men state that the reason the vessel was scuttled was, that she had no papers by which she could enter an}' port. The Marshal understands that the remaining por tion of the crew have left the country, and ha 3 consequently given up further chase after them.— He thinks he has done his duty in doing what he has. The examination of the parties will take place in the course of a few days. Mr. P. J. Joa chimssen, ex-assistant United States District At torney, has been retained as counsel for the pris oners. United States Marshal Renders will dispatch a competent person to Montauk Point to-day, to see if the Haidee is worth raising. If she is. the Mar shal intends to have her up.— -Vac York Herald. MOSLEM DISTURBANCES IX STRIA. [From the 80-iton Travel er.] We have late private advices from Syria, from which it appears that the troubles there are by no means at an end. It is now certain that the Mus sulmans are doing all in their power, bv every means, to resist the reforms initiated by the Sultan and more especially those which tend to the preju dice of their faith. Europeans are objects of their peculiar hatred. Insurrections are feared in every city where the Franks have any foothold. At Al exandria the residents live in constant fear of a rising of the Arabs and the burning of the city. News of murders in all part 3 of the country is con stantly being received. The cruelties practised at Jiddah and Jaffa are being repeated in many small er places. Routes that were formerly safe are now considered as impassible, and the whole country is now an unsafe residence for Europeans. The whole power of the Sultan and of the Pashas is exerted to its fullest extent to produce quiet, but only has thus far resulted in turning the rage of the fanatics against the existing Government, and in giving rise to a plot for dethroning the Sultan and giving the scepter to his brother. So well known is this plot that a number of the Embassadors to Constantinople have given out that Europe will not recognise the title of the Sultan's brother in the event of a successful termination of the rebellion. Our last advices from Alexandria show a horrible state of things. Our correspondent says: "There we heard of the murder of many Franks by the fa natical Mussulmans; and the report reached us that the Turks had secreted 5,000 muskets at one time, ane 20,000 at another, in their mosques, to be used in a general rising for the destruction of the Franks and Christian residents of the city." We have seen a letter from Beyrout of late date, in wliiuh it is stated that the American Consul for that place arrived there about the middle of July with his tamily. and that the raising of the flag of the Consulate, i'or the first time in sixteen months, was a pleasant sight for the American residents. The trial of the Jcfl'a criminals was then in pro gress; and it was regretted that the Dixon family, whose numbers were thinned by the Arabs there, had returned to America, as it was feared that some of the miscreants might escape punishment by lack of means for their indentification. It will be recol lected that the remainder of this family, who belong in Massachusetts, reached Boston but a few days since. A rumor of disturbances at Mount Lebanon had reached Beyrout, and the Pasha there, who is only second in dignity to the Grand Vizier, had, upon the representations of the Consuls at that place, dis patched a troop of soldiers to quell the rebellion, as well as to protect the foreigners. A number of mis sionaries on their way to different parts of Pales tine were at Beyrout awaiting the execution of the Jaffa criminals, fearing that it might cause a gen eral insurrection throughout the country, and pre ferring to remain under the protection of the guns of the men-of-war collected in the harbor. The writer of the above mentioned letter, which is dated Aug. 11, says : "An English man-of war arrived here yesterday, and a French man-of-war came last week. A Turk ish frigate stationed here sailed for Tripoli a few days since, whore an outbreak was rumored to have commenced. Next week, it is expected that there will be six steamers in the harbor; so, if a general rising should take place we can escape. There are also about 40 sail of merchant vessels in the har bor, of all nations except our own. We need an American man-of-war here, and expect one as soon as the exigencies of the public service will permit." A son of A. O. Talbot, M.

General Monagas and J. Gutierrez, sailed from this port the 31st August, on board the national brig San Pedro, in compliance with decrees of Gen. Castro. The convention alluded to in the decrees was con cluded by Mr. M. Berrisbeitia, Minister of State of the Republic of Venezuela, and Generrl Carlos Soublette, Chief of the Staff of his Excellency Gen. Castro, and Mr. F. Ormo, in the name of the Vice- Adniiral Count Gueydon, Commander-in-Chief of the allied squadrons (French and English,) at La guayra. Mr. Orme is the new English Charge d'Affaires. By the said convention it was agreed:— 1. lo send General Monagas out of the territory of the republic. 2. io surrender Gutierrez to the French Lega t'™. at the disposal of the Venezuelan government, that he might be tried unless the Executive power lndulted hitn. 3. lo try Gusseppi, for his peculations, extor tions, Ac. 4. lo submit to the friendlv and fair discussion of the government with the legations, the indemnitv tor the bearer of despatches detained at Laguavra, and the indemnity for the family of a French sub ject murdered in Caracas. 5. lo withdraw the allies' squadron from La guayra, as soon as the convention should be signed. Signed in Laguayra the 28th August, 1838. By the decrees alluded to in the above letter, Monagas was to be sent out of the country, and his banishment to last until the Convention or the Na t>onal Congress should decide otherwise. lhe decree in no way to interfere with the pecu niary responsibility which he should have incurred for acts during his administration, i ' ,a , c i. nto Gutierrez was pardoned, but remains vanished from the territory of ttic republic, until the Convention or Congress should have decided otherwise. 1 he provision as to pecuniary responsibility is the same in both cases. ' Giuseppi remains in prison. A correspondent of the Piano, of Havana, says: . peaceful and respectable Venezuelans show themselves very much indebted to the persons who interfered in the honorable settlement of the pend ing dilliculty relative to the Monagas affair—to Mr Orme, representative of Great Britain, and to the Count de Gueydon, vice admiral of France; on the part of Venezuela to the provisional President Cas tro, to General Carlos Soublette, Dr. Mauritio Ber risbeitia, and lastly to Sr. Garcia de Quevedo, rep resentative of Spain, and Sr. Pereira Leal, repre sentative of Brazil, who interposed their good of nccs. " Monagas and Gutierrez left on the 31st of Au gust from Laguayra for Martinique, on board the brig San Pedro, which was towed to sea by the Lritish war steamer Buzzard, Col. C. Mirichen accompanying them. On the morning of the 28th, his Excellency the 1 rovisional President, accompanied by his staff, sot out for Laguavra, where he arrived at half-past seven to herald the re-establishment of peace be tween Venezuela, England and France. In La guayra the news of the arrival of General Castro being known at half-past six in the morning, a pub lic proclamation announced that the visit of his Excellency should be worthily celebrated. In Mai quetia several persons on horseback joined the suite oi the General, and the immense majority of the population of Laguayra were assembled near the Custom House to receive him. All the streets were, as if by enchantment, decorated with the flags of all nations; there were artillery salutes, and in the night was made brilliant fireworks. So many joyous demonstrations were an evident proof of the high satisfaction shared by the entire popu lation. General Castro was lodged in a private house, from tin? balcony of which he addressed the assein bled people in a brief, but expressive speech, where in lie congratulated them on the re-establishment ot peace and good relations with England and France. As liis visit was quite unexpected, fifty persons immediately opened a subscription of twen ty dollars each to offer a banquet to his Excellency and his suite, to which were also invited the French \ ice Admiral, Countde Gueydon, Mr. Lcvrand, Mr. Orme. the commanders of the war ships in the port, the Dominican General, Buenaventura Baez, the consuls and officers of the garrison. The banquet was very cordial, and toasts were brought out in favor of the prosperity of the coun try and the continuation of the good intelli gence between the Venezuelan republic and the two great Western Powers of Europe, which, in stead of a transitory enmity, now offered their en lightened assistance for the devclopement of vari ous industrial enterprises. Notwithstanding the financial crises, and of course a great want of money, Senor Montufar has succeeded in completing the telegraphic line to Puerto Cabello. If peace continues we shall soon have not only electric telegraphs in all directions, but also railroads. Several rich strangers are dis posed to enter into whatever enterprise of this kind may promise good results. Several of the individuals complicated in the last plan of revolution have been set at liberty; on the other hand, a number of persons who seem to be very much compromised in the matter have been imprisoned in the Principal According to trust worthy accounts received here, the faction which had raised the banner of rebellion in Guanarito has been completely routed. Thus tranquility is fully re-established in Venezuela. ARMY INTELLIGENCE. It is determined by the War Department to augment the forces now serving in the departments of the Pacific and Oregon, and it is expected that in a few days upwards of one thousand men will be concentrated at Governor's Island for that pur pose. I'he regiments now serving in those departments are as follows: First dragoons. Major A. H. Blake commanding; Fourth Infantry, Lieut.-Col. T. Mor ris commanding; Sixth Infantry, Lieut.-001. George Andrews commanding; Ninth Infantry, Col. George Wright commanding. A board of officers, consisting of Captain O. E. | Pickett, Ninth Infantry; Captain J. Gorgus, Ord nance Department; Brevet Major T. T. S. Laidley, j Ordnance Department; Lieutenant H. IS. Clitz, Third Infantry, and Lieutenant I). 11. Manry, j .Mounted Riflemen, have been ordered to assemble ( at the Washington Arsenal for the purpose of ex amining recent improvements in small arms. The i Hoard arc directed to report to the W r ar Depart- j ment, through the Ordnance Bureau, with such re- | marks and opinions as they may deem proper, and ! to be governed by the provision in the Army Ap propriation act of June 12, 1858. The following assignments to duty of officers in : the medical department have been directed by the | Secretary of War: Surgeon Madison Mills, to"Fort j Leavenworth, Kansas; Surgeon John W. Cuvler to I'ort Monroe, Va.; Surgeon N. S. Jarvis to St. An tonio, Texas, there to assume the duties of medical j director; Assistant Surgeon R. Potts, to Fort Kip- | ley, Min.; Assistant Surgeon A. J. Meyer to Baton j Rouge, La. Second Lieut. John S. Saunders, Second artillery, ' is transferred to the Ordnance Department, and directed to report accordingly to the Colonel of \ Ordnance, by whom will be placed on duty at 1 the Washington Arsenal.— N. Y. /.V. Punt. The correspondent of the New York Time*, writ- i ing from Cainp Floyd, U. T., under date of Sept, .2, ! says:—Major Eastman arrived about a fortnight I since, with several hundred recruits for the Fifth j Infantry. The regiment, which was a mere skele ton hitherto, on account of the large number of j discharges on expiration of enlistment, is now com paratively full, averaging more than sixty men per j company. The new recruits are drilled daily, and the regiment will soon be in a high state of effici ency. Major Eastman commands; the colonel, Col. j Loomis, having been until recently on duty in | Florida; and the lieutenant-colonel, Col. W aite, \ having recently left on leave of absence. Capt. Anderson, of the Second Dragoons, arrived i on the 20th ult., with a few recruits for his regi ment. 1 lis little party was all that remained of the Second Column of the reinforcements for the Utah | Army, after reaching Fort Laramie, and leaving 1 I the garrison for that post. He brings some few I horses, but they are in no better condition than those that have been grazing among the hills and canons bordering upon Cedar Valley. Owing to the inability of the Quartermaster's De partment to obtain the requisite amount of forage, ) the horses will be herded among the different val leys again this winter, and no one looks forward to | the duty of guarding the herds with any degree of ! pleasure. A wandering life among these moun- I tains, with a tent for protection against the storms of winter, is bv no means an agreeable one to con template; besides, great vigilance w ill be necessary, on account of the Indians, who are in the habit of penetrating among the settlements and driving off stock in considerable numbers. One squadron of dragoons will be kept up, in order to be ready for any emergency which may arise.— Stables will be erected for them, and the horses must eat wheat, barley and oats, mixed, at $1.50 per bushel. The Indians fired upon a party of Saints, who were cutting hav in (tush valley, a fortnight since, and Lieutenant Tyler, with one hundred mounted men. was dispatched to the valley of Serier River to find their camp, and bring in the Chiefs for a talk: but altera trip of eight days ho returned, without having found any sign. The whole command is now busily occupied in hauling timber for the Cantonment, to which we will soon move. The present plan is to erect adobe buildings and cover them with boards with two inches of earth on the top. It is optional with the men whether they build these houses themselves, the adobes and lumber being furnished, or whether they will take the Hibley tent, raised upon a wall some three or four feet high. The majority elect the house—in fact there are no companies which were at Camp Scott last Winter desirous of trying a life in tents over again. By the present arrange ment each officer will be allowed one room fifteen feet square. Though this is rather a limited accom modation, yet I think it will be found quite as much as their present limited allowance of furniture will equip. Captain Simpson of, the Topographical Engi neers, left some days since with an escort of an officer and twenty mounted men, to make a recon naissance in the direction of Fort Itridger, through the Provo Canon; the object being to ascertain whether a shorter route may not be found than the present one through Echo and Emigration Ca nons. The Sixth Infantry were to have left Fort Bridg- 1 er for Oregon, on the 20th ult. It will be remem bered that they came over the road surveyed by I Lieutenant Bryan, which they pronounce favorably , upon as far as Bridger's Pass, but thence to Fort | Bridger the route is only adapted to small parties, on account of the scarcity of the water and grass. I Nevertheless, two companies of the Fourth Artil lery have been ordered to the Cheyenne Pass, with instructions to build a post. We now have every prospect of an abundant sup ply of subsistence stores the ensuing winter. The restriction upon the ration was removed for the first time since last fall, on the Ist inst. We hare been abundantly supplied with the vegetables of the season by the Saints, but at enormously high pri ces. Numbers of the Mormons are now seeking em ployment from the Government, having caught a glimpse of the coin which is beginning to circulate among them. Men who have fine farms, and can spare a month from the farm labor, seek employ ment in any capacity for that time in order to ob- j tain the wherewith to purchase winter clothing for | themselves and families.— Corr. X. Y. Evening I'oat. FORT LARAMIE, N. T., Sept. 5. | The Company of Sappers and Miners, command- ! i ed by Lieut. Duane, D. S. Engineers, arrived here ] from Bridger on the 30th August and left on the ' 2d for the east. When they came out from the I i States they brought with them seven wagon loads j . of pioneer's tools—such as spades, picks, axes, saws j and augers—and now they are taking them all back, j although they are greatly needed in U;ah, and i others could be purchased at West Point (the des tination of the company) for one-fourth the cost of i carrying these back. The reason assigned for this course of conduct is that the tools belong to the j Engineer bureau, and there is no officer of that corps [ left to take charge of them. One would suppose a PRICE TWO CENTS 1 m ' Kht entrusted with this import- I ui? ' f .'! ' n,aDtr ? *®[t Fort Bridger on the 21st ult., for Oregon ,> Bcnicia, California.

Xo grain can be got, of course, and if tlie grass fails, the animals must starve. The new road opened by Lieutenant Bryan passes about seventy-five miles south of here, and is sixty miles shorter than this route: the ascents are also more gentle, and it is less likely to be blocked with sno\v than this road, hut grass is extremely scarce, being confined to the immediate banks of streams, and the water, particularly down Bitter Creek (a tributary of Green river.) is bad.— Bryan's road is preferable for mail riders and small parties of travelers, but all large trains must con tinue to travel up the North Fork of the Platte and along the Sweetwater. Companies L and SI, 4th Artillery, will leave here about the 15th inst. to establish a military post at the head of Lodge Pole Creek, where Bryan's road strikes the Black Hills. Grass and timber are much more abundant on the head waters of Medi cine Bow River (a hundred miles farther west,) but it is too late in the season to get there and erect buildings; in fact nothing but huts can be put up this fall on Lodge Pole Creek. The order for the establishment of the new post was delayed on the road at least three weeks, and our first informa tion was derived from the address, or one of the übiquitous printed copies of Russell, Major & Wad dell s contract. The cost of maintaining troops, particularly cav alry, out here, is enormous. 'Corn at this post costs the" government more than six dollars a bushel. Just before theclose of Mr. Davis's career as Secre tary of War, he issued an order breaking up this post, and Fort Kearney intending (1 think wisely) to send expeditions out to the plains every summer, to awe the Indians, and in the fall when "the grass failed, to recall the troops to Fort Riley and Fort Leavenworth where forage is cheap. Infantry garrisons are less expensive, but they are totally useless, probably injurious. Both hereand at Kear ney the Indians have driven oft' the government herd in broad daylight, and in full view of the "doughboys," who could only watch them from their barracks, because they had no animals with which to follow in pursuit." A train of seventy-five government wagons, loaded with clothing for the troops in Utah, ar rived here yesterday in thirty days from Fort Leavenworth. This is prett}- fast traveling, but it is necessary, for the supply of clothing in Utah is exhausted. In Gen. Smith's minute instructions for the move ment of the reinforcements for Utah, contained in his order of the 3d of May, the allowance for trans portation for troop was tixed at the minimum, and officers and soldiers were prohibited from taking their families, on the pretext that the service was temporary,and that most of the reinforcements would speedily return to Fort Leavenworth. He also promised that those who did not return should have sent to theio, from Fort Leavenworth, a very liberal supply of baggage, Ac. Out ot four regi ments that marched, one has been ordered back; the members of the other three can indulge the hope of meeting their families sometime after Russell, Wad dell and Floyd retire; and if any officer among them still thinks it is necessary to change his shirt oftener than once a week, he can enjoy that felicity by pur chasing a couple of "hickories" of the sutler at an advance on St. Louis prices of from 300 to 1,000 percent. A few days since a delegation of Sioux called upon our commanding officer to complain that they were unable to communicate freely with their agent, because he lives near the Crows, who arc at enmity with the Sioux. They obtained no satisfaction. — These Indians live bv hunting antelope and by beg ging. A band of them have established their vil lage near the fort. Their lodges are made of coni cal arrangements of poles covered with dressed buffalo skins. One of these Indians, named The Swimmer, died of appoplexy recently. He bore a very strong resemblance to General Cass; so strong in fact, that everybody observed it. The Sioux tie their dead in the branches of trees, but Swimmer was so heavy they interred him. Our gardens have produced nothing. Either ex cessive rain, continuous drought, or the grasshop pers, make horticulture a failure three years out of four. Some mountaineers and Indian traders have attempted to raise corn, but they cannot succeed. FROM PIKE'S PEAK GOLD REGION. The Occidental (Independence) Messenger, of the 25th ult., says : "Several gentlemen arrived at this place on Thursday last, direct Irom the Oold mines near Pike's Peak. The parties live in Ray county, Mo., and have spent several months prospecting for gold in these mines. They state that as many as 150 persons had been at the mines this summer, and had explored and prospected them to their heart's content. This party represent that nearly all had abandoned the mines, they being about the last to leave. They say that gold certainly exists in that whole section of country, as they never tried at any point but they succeeded in washing out a small quantity from the dirt, but the yield was so small that it'would not pay the miners at work while they were there, not averaging as ranch as fifty cents per day. The gentlemen intend when they arrive at home, in Ray, to publish an account of their adventures and success in the mines, together with the prospects and inducements for others to go." The Lawrence (Kansas) Republican, of the 23d ult., says: "During the past week there hare been several arrivals in town from the gold regions of the Rocky Mountains. From Mr. Baker, who was one of the original Lawrence company, we learn that that company have gone to the Spanish Peaks instead of Cherry Creek. The Spanish Peaks are in New Mexico, about six days journey south front Pike's Peak. The Lawrence company have been encamped nearly all summer at Pike's Peak, and have sent prospecting companies into all the coun try reuml about. They found gold in all the streams, hut not in sufficient quantities to prove profitable mining with their present facilities. Mr. Baker is confident that there arc rich deposits of gold in that region, and that, with the proper fa cilities for mining, it could be made to pav well. He confirms the account that there is a Georgia company at work on Cherry Creek. It is from this Georgia company that the arrivals of gold to Kan sas City have been received. The Lawrence com pany have gone to Spanish Peaks, and will proba bly winter in New Mexico." A correspondent of the N.Y. Evening Post,writing from Cambridge, Mass., says : The friends of Har vard University in New York will probably be sur prised and certainly will regret to hear'that tho Hon. Joel Parker, Royal Professor in the Law School, contemplates resigning bis high and honor able position. Judge Parker was called t. O the chair which he has so well and happily filled, about twelve years ago, succeeding to some of the branches previously taught by Mr. Justice .Storv. Prior to this he was for several years Chief Justice of New Hampshire, and the legal eommunitv will well remember his signal triumph over Judge Story when the Supreme Court nt Washington gave their sanction to his construction of the Bankrupt Laws of 1841, and disapproved of the rulings in the Dis trict Court, held by Storv. Judge Parker's loss will be severely felt, and there will be great difficulty in securing'a successor as learned and distinguished as he. Judge Thoivas of Worcester, a present justice of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts, has been tendered the office, but prefers to remain in the position he now occupies. It is uncertain to whom the tender will next be made. Ex-Governor Washburn and Hon. Theopi lus Parsons continue to give great satisfaction in the Law Department, and the bar will soon re ceive from the latter gentleman a valuable treatise in two volumes, on Maritime Law, the Law of In surance and the Practice of Admiralty. The venerable president, Dr. James Walker, still retains his seat at the head of the University ' not withstanding the numerous reports of last year an nouncing his intention to resign, and the "contests of rival candidates for the succession. In the event of his resignation. Prof. Felton and Hon. Robert 0. Winthrop would be prominent candidates for the position. Very soon we shall expect the first volume of a standard history of New England, from the pen of Hon. John O. Palfrey Since retiring from politi cal lite, Mr. Palfrey has been collection- valuable and rare materials for his work, which, jud-nno from a perusal of a few of the proof-sheets and" the reputation of the author as a scholar and historian, will constitute by far the most attractive and ju diciously written history of New England that has yet appeared.
