BALTIMORE, October 12, 1868. The Stock market is still exceedingly dull, the sale.<to-day being only about $15,000. Railroad stocks further improved, .and sales 0f153 shares Bal timore and Ohio were made at $57 cash, seller's op tion and buyer 2 days, an advance of about 50 cents per share since yesterday. At the close $57 was bid regular way. Of Northern Central there were sales of 206 shares at $20% regular way, and s2l seller's option GO days, and it left off at $20% bid casb, % higher tiiau the previous day. Hank stocks are still very quiet, the only transaction being 18 shares Western at s2l, and we note a sale of 100 shares Springfield Mining Company at $2.44, with that price offered for more, but held at $2%. Can ton shows a further improvement of S2O being bid, but there was nothing done in it. Baltimore city G's exhibit little or no change, SIOOO 1800's selling at In railroad bonds there was nothing doing, and we are without any special change to note. At New York to-day prices generally declined, and the market closed heavy. Canton receded New York Central Reading Cleveland and Toledo y A \ Rock Island Michigan Southern and La Crosse and Milwaukie Erie was un changed and Harlem improved %. The following is a comparative statement of the condition of the New York Hanks for the weeks ending Oct. 2 and Oct. 9 : Oct. 2. Oct. 9.

The whole statement shows an expansion, with the exception of loans, and the con traction of this item is no doubt a forced one. A portion of the increase in specie came from the Sub-Treasury, which disbursed about $600,000 more than it received, and the remainder from tlie rising average of the previous week. The foreign shipment of the week was made on Saturday, ami docs not count much in the average, although over $6u0,000 is gone to day from the aggre gate. There is a fair business doing in foreign bills for the Wednesday steamer, and the market is steady. The sup ply of commercial hills is better, a considerable amount having been received, based on the active cotton move ment at the South. Sterling is 9# @9# for commercial signatures. 9# nlO for banks, and 9# "10# for bankers. F ancs are 5.15 o 5.12#. We alluded some days since to the appearance of forged Certificates of Deposit, to the amount of $27,500, on the American Exchange Bank, which had been received hereby tin- Mercantile Bank from its correspondent Bank in Pittsburg. Other Certificates of the same character have since been received, bringing the amount up tosso, 000. It is not known if the Pittsburg Bank bought th**se Certificates or sent them forward for collection, but as the Bank drew against the proceeds, it is most probable that some shrewd knave has got an advance upon them.— What makes the fraud peculiar is that the party to whose credit the money purported to be deposited is well known here, .and his endorsement is pronounced by those who know it well to be genuine. The blanks are such as the Bank used a number of years since, and the name signed as that of Teller is not the name of any connected with the Bank. The signature of the Cashier is a poor imita tion of the original. The earnings of the Michigan Central Road for the month of September were: 1858. 1857.

Ship Golden State, Hepburn, New-York, bound to China. Ship Judge Shaw. Parker, of Boston, sailed from Penang, Aug. 1, for Macao, with rice. The ship Golden State was delayed in port in con sequence of the trial of the mutineers of that ship, who had murdered the first officer, Nathan Wil liams, of Maine, a few days before. On the 4th Sir Benson Maxwell, the Recorder, had convicted Chas. Maxwell and Philip Carter,lrish, and Josephßruet, French-Canadian, seamen of that vessel, of murder in the first degree. They were to he sentenced to death on the sth, on which day fifteen other seamen were put on trial charged with assault upon the second mate with intent to kill. At Point de Galle, Ceylon, the only American ship tvas the Shepherd Knapp, York, master, ar rived April 9, and was seeking. The telegraph connecting "Point de Galle with Continental India is to be commenced immediately. That between Galle and Colombo was opened in January last. The railway between Colombo and Kanady is in progress. Cholera had appeared in Ceylon. The cottee crop will be an average one. At Alden, Arabia Felix, Aug. 13, were ships Imaum, Captain Perkins, and N. Cogswell, Captain Hawkins. The former arrived from Zanzibar, and was to leave next day for Muscat. The latter ar rived June 15, front Zatr/ibar, and would return there about the middle of September. The trotting race, on Saturday last, over the Fashion Course, Long Island, between Lancet and Lantern, for $2,000, mile heats, was won by Lancet, Lantern winning the second heat. Time 2.41% — 2.44-—2.43% —2.44. This race was well contested, and as the match was lor $2,000, an unusually large number of persons turned out to witness the eon test and participate in the excitement incident thereto. The track was not in condition suited to a fast race. At the appointed time the horses were called up for the word, and immediately thereafter betting on the result began in earnest. ' Lancet was offered at two to one, and taken. Lantern won the second heat, and his backers risked the chances freely, taking every offer made them. When they were stripped for the third heat, Lancet certainly made the best appearance in point of order, but many thought that as it had come to broken heats Lantern might slip in by the scuffle and win the trot, while others were offering to wager largely that he would be nowhere before the race was over. Lancet won the race, making the quickest heat ever trotted over this track to a wagon. The Albany democrats opposed to the manage ment of Mr. Peter Cagger, Chairman of the Demo cratic General Committee, held a convention on the 9tfi at Albany, and nominated John H. Reynolds for Congress, and a full county ticket. Resolutions proposed by S. G. Courtney, a son-in-law of Hon. i S ,-,. l)ickin >n, were adopted. The movement is rebellion against the Syracuse Convention. The correspondent of the New York Times says : In its local consequences, the movement would seem necessarily disastrous to the party. Mr. Corn ing can scarcely expect to run with success. Air. Reynolds is confessedly n strong man, and there arc those who predict his election. The action of the Convention will probablv de cide the Americans against uniting with the Repub licans, as it leaves them a good look for electing their own ticket. Next to the Democrats their vote is the largest in the city and county—the Republi cans being weakest. THE CBESS MATCH AT PAHIS. —The New York Courrier den Elate Unit contains a letter dated Paris, September 23d, the latest dates received, which says: "America has check-mated Europe in the duel be tween Mr. Morphy, of the United States, and Mr. Harwitz, of Berlin. The latter has been van quished." The London Illunlraled Newt, of September 28th, says: "Air. Morphy intends we understand, upon the termination of his short encounter with Air. Harwitz, to proceed immediately to Breslau, for the purpose of breaking a lance with the German champion, Anderssen." The steam-propeller Prince Albert, of theGalway line, which had been moored in the neighborhood of the N'ew York Dry Dock, for the purpose of get ting some repairs made to her bottom, was cut adrift about 2 o'clock on Sunday morning, and floated down the stream. While drifting, she came in collision with several vessels, and caused damage to the amount of nearly SI,OOO. The crew, on dis covering what had occurred, dropped anchor. Ef forts are being made to discover the scoundrel who cut her adrift. LATEST NEWS. telegrams i RECEIVED AT THE OFFICE OF THE DAILY EXCHANGE. | ADDITIONAL BY THE CITY OF BALTIMORE. NEW YORK, Oct. 12.—The following- additional items, received by steamer City of Baltimore, have been telegraphed from St. .lohns, N. F.: The French Ambassador will leave Paris for China on the 3d of October, with the ratified French treaty. The royal mail steamship Africa, from New York, arrived at Liverpool on the 2Cth ult. (IREAT RRITAIX. The controversy between Prof. Whitehouse and the Directors of the Atlantic Telegraph continues in the newspapers. The shares of the Company were quoted at £315@£325. The Liverpool Corn Trade Association recom mends that corn, flour and meal be sold bv the uni form standard of one hundred pounds weight. There was some expectation of a reduction of the rate of interest by the Bank of Englaud, owing to the accumulation of bullion. The English papers publish an official synopsis of the treaty with China. Tt contains fifty articles. A separate "article provides that two millions of taels shall be paid on account of the British losses at Can ton. and two millions of taels 011 account of the ex penses of the war.

Dunnigan, anil on the pas- j sage over, in a conversation with the Captain, the woman remarked that she was a stranger in the city, and that the man accompanving, bad volun teered to conduct her to the place where she intend ed to stop, which was on North Charles street. On further inquiry, Capt. I). learned that she had come to the city in a sloop from Dorchester coun ty, and had landed at one of the Canton wharves, where the man had met her, and on learning whee she desired to go, offered his guidance, at the same time employing a German to convey her baggage, j consisting of a trunk and bandbox. Her guide, in- j stead of taking her to North Charles street, was on j his way to Locust Point. The captain informed j the woman that she was going directly from the place she desired to reach, and that, no doubt, the j man was intentionally deceiving her. On reaching Locust Point she refused to get off the boat, ano J claimed protection of Capt. Dunnigan. She returned ! to the Broadway wharf, where the captain secured j a hack, and sent her to her proper destination.

Pitts, Esq., one of the counsel for Henry Gam brill, charged with the murder of Police officer Benton, stated to the Court that they were now ready to give the amount of bail required, ($12,- 000) which had been fixed upon by the Court on the dav previous. Judge Stump replied, that the Court now de clined taking any bail at all in Gambrill's case, as the opinion of tlie Grand Jurors, who had heard the evidence, was that no bail should be taken. Mr. Pitts remarked, he did not see what the j Grand Jury had to do with the matter, it lies en tirely with the Court. Judge Stuinp—l know; the Court has discretion ary power in the case, and although the Court fixed the bail at $12,000, it had no knowledge of the na- ! ture of the evidence: the Court will respect the opinion of the Grand Jury, who have heard the tes- j timonv. Mr. Pitts —If the Court is guided by the opin ion of the Grand Jury in regard to the testimony before them, in arriving at its conclusion, we do | mand that the Court itself will also examine the j testimony in the case. Judge Stump—l will not do it, I have not the time. | This morning, Mr. Lucas, one of the Grand Jurors j spoke to me in relation to the matter, to the effect | that the Grand Jury were surprised, that bail was to be taken in this case. Afterwards in a conversa tion with Mr. Whitney, I desired him to see the Grand Jurors, and ask their opinion relative to the matter. The Grand Jury then in accordance with this request, submitted their opinion to ine in wri ting. I therefore declined taking any bail.

We have received our file of the Deseret News, up to September the Bth, and private advices to the 11th. The organ of the Prophet, front scarcity of paper, is very small in size, and as the reflector of Mornionism, "becoming beautifully less." The discourses of the great men of Utah are no longer therein reflected. There is little news of any char acter. The "Deseret Agricultural and Manufacturing Society" publishes a long list of premiums to be awarded at theirannual exhibition, which was to be held on Tuesday last. It would, therefore, ap pear that the Mormons are hastening back from the tented field to the hum of industry. The only warlike item is in the published corres pondence of James Ferguson, Brig. Gen. Mil. T. T., Adj. Gen., with I'. St. Geo. Cooke, I.t. Col. Second dragoons. The Mormon Brigadier General states that lie heard read a letter in the Eastern papers, with the name of the Lieutenant Colonel to it, in which it is stated "that the Mormons are a set of cowards, like all assassins and bullies." Following this quotation, the Mormon says: "I ask you, kind ly aud u ith respect, to make that apology which vour own high sense of honor will suggest is due." The Lieutenant Colonel answers: "I wrote no such letter; I wrote no letter for pub lication. I never wrote or spoke such a sentence. I left Camp Scott November 26, and did not return. The letter, you say, was dated there November 29. I never saw such a letter in the papers, or heard of its existence until lately, as a rumor from Salt Lake City. I thank you for informing me of this mysterious forgery. My sense of the performances of the Mor mon battalion was expressed at San Luis Rev, in an order whieli you remember, and which stands printed in a Senate document; and I can only refer to my connection with you on the Battalion staff as a satisfactory and pleasant one." The order for coffee and pistols for two is, there fore, set aside, and Mr. Ferguson, the vindicator of Mormon pluck, will doubtless pass for a hero. Governor Gumming seems to be on the most friendly terms with the leading men. Here is the official account of tlie late party of which we have heard so much : Agreeable to invitation by President Brigham Young, the first Presidency, his Excellency Gover nor Cumtning and several other citizens, with la dies and children, rendezvoused Aug. 26 at a ro mantic, shady location, a short distance above mill Din Big Cottonwood kanyon, and around a com modious, bough-covered room, built by the B. C. Lumber Company for the accommodation of those who might wish to participate in the dance. Captain W. 11. Hooper accompanied the Governor to the rendezvous and in returning, while Mrs. Gumming, upon her spirited pony, and escorted by Gen. Ferguson, enjoyed a wider and more pictn resque view of tlie constantly shifting scenery than could those who occupied luxurious seats in car riages. Music, dancing and the song enlivened the social gathering, in the enjoyment of which none seemed to surpass the Governor and his lady. The party returned on the 28th, delighted and re freshed by tlie pleasant drive, the pure kanyon breezes, and the two nights and a day's encamp ment amid leafy bowers bv ice-cold streams.— Neio Tort: Herald. FROM WASHINGTON. [ Correspondence nf the Xrw York Times.] Oct. 11.—Dr. C. W. Bradley arrived yesterday morning with the Chinese Treaty, lie also brings a manuscript letter from the Emperor of China, written in two languages, the Chinese and Man clio. Mr. Reed leaves China about the Ist of De cumber, for Bombay, and thence to England, where he expects to meet his family. Dr. 15. brings a fall synopsis of the English treaty with China. October 11.—P. M.—l telegraphed you this morning that Dr. C. W. Bradley, United States Consul at Ningpo, had arrived here, bringing our treaty with China, which was to-dav handed over to the State Department, together with a full sV nopsis of the English treaty. Ours is drawn fuoin the English and Russian treaties, with a few grants, which those Powers intend to avail themselves of. Secretary Cass was too unwell to be at his office to-day, and the documents were sent to his private residence. The autograph letter from the Emperor of China is written on silk, two by seven feet, and elegantly executed. Dr. Bradley communicates to tlie State Depart ment a variety of interesting and important news. Trade was entirely prostrate at Hong Kong when lie left, on the 22d of July. A vast amount of Euro pean and American tonnage was unemployed at Shanghae, with little prospect of an immediate de mand. The same state of tilings existed at Singa pore, Bombay and Calcutta. At Singapore there were eighty square-rigged vessels, and all without employment-. Commodore Tatnall's despatches to the Navv De partment state that, in consequence of the protec tion afforded by the vast number of naval vessels of the great Powers in the waters of China, foreign ers and foreign commerce wore safe, and he thought it best for our squadron to he withdrawn and go to Japan, lie had, therefore, ordered all the vessels to sail for Japan. The Powhatan was to go to Hokadadi to have her engines and rudder overhauled. Commodore Tat nall intended returning with the squadron to China in October. The Navv Department has ordered a Board, con sisting of tlie Engineer-in-Chief of the Navy, Archi bald; Chief Engineers Hunt, Whipple and Martin, to examine Miller's steam condensers, with a view of using them in the navv. [Correspondence Xeiv York Trihvnr, Oc/. 11.] On t he meeting of tlie Court of Claims, in Novem ber, more than one hundred decisions in pending cases will be delivered. Commander Charles Green has been appointed Lighthouse Inspector for Buffalo district. Nothing is known at the Navy Department of any of tlie chartered vessels for the Paraguay expedi tion being unfit for service as reported. The new Senate Chamber will he ready for occu pation at the commencement of the next Session of Congress. Commodore Shnbrick left the city to-day for New York. The frigate Sabine is to sail without delay. [Correspondenceof the Xcw York Herald.] Oct. 11th.—It is said Mr. Reed, Minister to China, asks to be allowed to return to the United States. Mr. Reed says he had made arrangements with the Imperial Commissioners for indemnification of American citizens for losses caused by the difficulty at Canton; a portion of tlie duties collected at Can ton, Shanghae, and I-'oy Chow, were to be ap pro priatcd for this purpose—time being allowed till the restoration of business at these ports, which ui iglit he in November next. Mr. Reed recommends that the squadron make its appearance in the waters of China about that 'time for moral effect.. When writing, our Minister was on board the Minnesota, in the Gulf of Peelieli. lie was about proceeding to Shanghae, and contem plated going to tlie northern parts of China. John Mitchell, editor of the Southern Citizen, an nounces that after the 15th of November the place ofits publication will be changed from Knoxv'ille, Tenn., to this city. The reason for the change as signed is, that "the Citizen has hitherto devoted itself much more to the general questions of p< dicy which touch the whole South than to the Sitate politics of Tennessee, and is taken and read for this reason, mainlv, from Texas to Maryland, and Urom St. Louis to Tallahassee. It will issue more n atn rallv, and with better claims upon general sup.oort, from the capital." LOLA MONTEZ AND THE CLERGY. [To the Editor of the Herald.] NEW YORK, Oct. 18. r iß. May I ask the favor of a small space in your pa per ? I perceive that sninc of the papers (a ad 1 am informed that the bishop and others of the cler gy have interfered) are casting reflections upon tlie little donation which I have offered to make for the purpose of rebuilding a church designed for the free use of the poor. 1 wish to state that when I v< >lun teered for this purpose 1 had never seen the reotnr, the Rev. Ralph Hoyt, but I had heard it stated that his practice is to distribute from his church food and clothing to the poor during the cold mont'ns of winter. The idea ofa clergyman, in the st ilfish times we live in, giving food and clothes to the freezing and starving, instead of feasting the m on "tracts," struck me as being most unheard of con duct in a minister, and I felt a jtrong desire to give my mite and help to rebuild a church which i s to be used for such a very novel, but true Christian, purpose. Nor did "I for a moment ima.gine that there was to be found even in the benighted regions of clerical bigotry and intolerance, one so stupid and so shameless as to find fault with a truly philanthropic clergyman for his willingness to receive a donation from me to feed and instruct the poor. 1 did remember that it was the doctors of theology and the pious folks who crucified the Master, aud my wide experience has taught me that it is not to that class of people that we mav generally look for good and charitable deeds; hut I was not prepared to expect such an insulting in terference of bishops and clergy, in what is only an humble otter of mine to help the poor. But I am contented to leave it with thinking minds to say who is the better Christian, myself, or the cold, heartless Pharisee who would crush me or any one else for doing good. As I have seen it stated in some of the papers that under these circumstances I might refuse to lecture for that object, I deem it prrper to say, over my own name, that I shall lec ture, as advertised, at Hope Chapel, on Wednesday evening, and all the proceeds will be handed over to the benevolent object before named. And, to my lecture on Rome. I shall add a postcript in re lation to anti-Christian and anti-American bigotry and intolerance, which may, also, as it appears, bo used to rob the poor and divest man of his natural rights. With pity for the poor, and many prayers for the "sinners in Zion," I am your obedient ser vant. LOLA MONTEZ. ; EXPLOSION OF THE NAVAL MAGAZINE AT HAVANA. Tlie United States mail steamship Black Warrior, .1. W. Smith. Commander, from New Vork on the 27th ult., and from Havana on the 3d inst., arrived at New Orleans 011 the fith. She experienced very pleasant weather the entire passage. On the 29th ult., at half-past four P. M., the naval magazine at Havana, situated at the head of the harbor, containing over one hundred and fifty thou sand pounds of gunpowder, several hundred loaded shells, together with a large quantity of rockets, fireworks, etc., exploded. The shock and effect, as described by the residents of thecity, was truly awful. Thus far therehave been found in the ruins and about the grounds twenty eight dead bodies and one hun dred and five wounded; four of the wounded dying after they had been removed to the hospital. For some moments the air was tilled with all descriptions of destructive missiles, and many stones, shells, etc., were projected a long distance from the building and into the bay. No damage was done to the vessels at anchor. The dead bodies of three Coolies were blown through the air to the slope of Fort Atares, nearly a quarter of a mile off. There were upwards 1 of three hundred persons employed on the new Sugar Warehouses in the immediate vicinity of the disaster, mostly coolies, and among them the loss of life and limb appears to have been the greatest. Of the mili tary guard of the magazine, consisting of a Sergeant and sixteen men, but four remained. Many bodies arc no doubt yet under the ruins and in the water of the harbor. The destruction of the tine pile of sugar warehouses, some twenty build ings, several of which were finished and the others in course of construction, is complete—nothing now remaining but a mass of stones and rubbisli. '1 he concussion was so great as to destroy the gasometers, rendering tlie gas works for the pre sent entirely useless, and will require at least three months before the city can be lighted. Every resi dence is more or less affected by the shock. Sev eral residences sustained great damage, among the number was the residence of Don Domingo Abefatna, fronting the military parade ground, the house of Don Jose Maria lionillis, and tlie edifice of the Koval Equonomieal Society. The Diario <lc la Marina of the 30th, in noticing the event, says: "Tlie attention and relief afforded by the authorities of our city, directed by Captain- General Qo.icba in person, who was by accident in the immediate vicinity at toe time, was great.— General Concha was first on the ground after the explosion, where he remained until 7P. M. He en gaged tlie whole force of marines, firemen and mil itary which were at liis disposition, and by his en ergy and encouragement the troops did great ser vice. Our navy, with its usual energy, also distin guished itself on the occasion. Meanwhile, there was no neglect to protect the public securitv. Tlie city being left in perfect darkness tlie niglit watch was posted at half-past six o'clock, which is to be the case until proper lights are restored. The whole force of the police and large detach ments of infantry and cavalry are on duty during the night to guard the city against robbery or dis turbance of the public peace. With these precau tions the city is perfectly safe." Sugars are down a fraction; stock 105,000 boxes. Exchange on New Orleans 5J4 to 5%; New York i' 4 lol'K: London 15 to 15%. United States gold coins in demand. None lor sale. The Black Warrior has on freight for New Or leans, $200,000 in gold from New York, $9,400 from Havana, and a large freight of merchandise.— N. U. Bulletin. The New York Herald speaks thus of the New Nioaraguan constitution: By tlie sixth article the religion of the republic is declared to be the Roman Catholic Apostolic, and worship in its forms will be protected by the gov ernment. In the ninth article the citizens are de clared inelligible to public ollice if they do not pro fess the religion of the republic. But the gist of the constitution is contained in the fifty-sixth arti cle, which reads as folio ws : When public order is menaced tlie government may issue orders of arrest or imprisonment against those it may presume to be guilty, and interrogate them, placing them within the term of fifteen days at liberty or at the disposition of their respective Judges. But if, in the judgment of the President, it should be necessary to confine in the interior or to banish from the republic those suspected of con spiracy or treason, lie shall associate with him two Senators, either possessory or alternates, from dif ferent departments, whom he shall convoke to de termine by the majority of votes tlie proper course. Those who vote in favor of the sentence shall be re sponsible therefor. When public order is subver ted. the President may use this power alone. Here we have the whole power of the constitu tion overturned, and the President made absolute over the liberty of the citizen at all times when disturbance is apprehended. A timid, a tyranni cal, or an unpopular government may always ap prehend disturbance. There is another concise stipu lation, which is fruitful of disorder and popular re sistance. The 102 d article is as follows : For the present, the ecclesiastical and military class privileges shall stand subject to the laws that may be enacted in the matter. Thus it will be seen that this new constitution sustains the three great principles which all Span ish-America is struggling to overthrow—a State religion, an absolute executive, and the class priv ileges of the non-working classes of society. We cannot believe that such a political code will main tain peace in Nicaragua lor the future any more than it has in the past. It is tlie political creed of Granada —that of Leon is antagonistic to it in every sense. TIN: VINTAGE IN FKANCE.—The London News has the following account of the vintage prospects in the south of France, from a private and perfectly reliable source: "After a series of bad years caused by the rav ages of the oiilluiu, we may consider that the dis ease lias nearly disappeared. The dryness of tlie temperature during the summer, which has proved injurious to cereals and other produce, has been fa vorable to tlie vine. The fruit is abundant and per fectly developed by the beat, so that in spite of our having been obliged to destroy many old vines in consequence of their having been attacked by the disease, we anticipate a vintage equalling the aver age years of the old times. Ricking for red wine has begun generally, and we have every reason to believe that the red wines of 1858, will be excellent in quality, possessing flavor, body and color 111 a high degree. As to white wines, tlie vintage is la ter than in the case of red, and will not begin be fore the end of this month, and will continue throughout October. Should the weather remain favorable, we have the same expectations as to the white wines as have been mentioned with respect to the red. For our sweet wines we require a few days of rain to soften and swell the skin of the grapes, and thereby produce that quality of juice which gives tliem their oily luscious flavor. Should j our anticipations be realized, there must be a con siderable fall in prices as regards new wines; but stocks of old are so very low that no fall can be ex pected in them." ALLEGANY COLNTV.—The Cumberland Civilian says: We are sorry to say this week, that owing to tlie long continued drought, tlie supply of water in the river at this citv has failed, ami boats are tied up until there shall come a rise. The officers of the canal, knowing that the water in the dam would become too low, and that the water in the canal was also falling, gave notice to all boatmen to load, and on Friday they would draw on the river, and send all the loaded boats through the Cumberland level, which was done; a large fleet was passed in this manner, but it drew the water from the river dam to a level with the canal, and now all boating has ceased, save the Cumberland Coal and Iron Company, whose wharf is alongside of the canal, arc still loading a few boats. But at the river wharf all has stopped, and the usual noise and bustle of that place has settled into a Sabbath like stillness. The October term of the Allegany County Cir cuit Court commenced on yesterday, and from the amount of business upon the docket, the session promises to be a long one. The Philadelphia Bulletin, speaking of the Centu ry Plant, relates the following strange and interest ing facts: "But there is a still more curious circumstance connected with this plant, though of a historical and not of a botanical nature, and one very little known to the great multitude even of scholars. It is the great link and the surest guarantee in exist ence, that long before Columbus, in the 15th cen tury, A. I).. there was intercourse between Asia and America. It is not many years since Charles New mann, a celebrated German Orientalist, discovered, while in China, among the ancieDt perfectly authentic Year Books or annals of the Empire, re cords of embassies sent to countries in the East, which from tlie descriptions were most evidently California and Mexico. What established the fact, was the description of the great flowering aloe, by Budhist monks sent from time to time on missions to Mexico. They called the plant Fueang, and named the country after it. Its appearance and va rious uses were too accurately set forth to leave room for doubt that the mission in question took place."

A letter from Alexandria, of the 3d, says: A small Greek trading vessel arrived in this port about a fortnight ago with two boys on board, who reported that on the previous day Captain Con standi and his son and daughter were murdered in the most brutal and cold-blooded manner that has been heard of in modern times. It appears that the Eftihia left Candia, bound for Alexandria, hav ing on board a general cargo and eight persons, including the captain, his son and daughter, two sailor boys, and three Turks, who were passengers. From the evidence of the boys, everything went on satisfactorily until they were about fifteen miles from this place, when the Turks ascertained from the captain the position they were in. No sooner was this information acquired by them than they murdered the captain and his son, viola ted the daughter, and then she also was doomed to the same fate which she so lately jwitnessed her father and brother suffer. The boys who were eye witnesses to these cruel deeds lied through fright to hide themselves amongst the cargo in the hold. — The Turks, who had so far finished their inhuman work, and not taking the trouble to search for the two boys in order that there might be 110 one left to tell the tale, thought that it would answer their purpose as well to fasten the hatches of the hold, and after gathering all the valuable articles that they could find, set fire to the vessel and put off to tlie shore in her boat. Luckily the fire did not do much injury, and the boys, after an hour's exertion, succeeded iu extri cating themselves by a trap door. In all proba bility the murderers would have made their escape but for the strict quarantine regulations which are at present in force here; and in attempting to land they were taken into custody by some officials who arc stationed up the coast. In the meantime the vessel arrived, and thus helped to carry out the ends of justice. The three murderers were quickly brought down here, and, without much trial or de lav, were as quicklv condemned to die. The scene wiiich followed took place at six o'clock on the morning of the 28th of August, and although no one can doubt its justness, it must have been as horrible a spectacle as I have ever heard or read ot. The three culprits were led torth at the same time to three of the most public plac< s in the ton n. The first was strung up in the market pluoe 011 a hook at the butcher's shop; the second suffered a similar fate in front of one of the principal mosques; and the third was hung in the gate of the custom house, in sight of the ships in the harbor. Alter hanging for four hours, with a large placard sus pended from the neck of each, in Arabic characters, stating the nature of their crime, as a warning o others to deter them from committing such baibar ities, they were cut down and buried in the ground allotted to murderers. Thus ended the dreadful drama which is the subject of this letter. FOREIGN^ The Monitenr de FArmee says: "Our information relative to the expedition to Cochin China has been confirmed bv the appoint ment of Admiral Rigault de Genouiilv to the com mand of the expeditionary troops, military and na val, which are to be sent there. A small body of Spanish troops is, in addition, it appears, to be sup plied by the Captain-General of the Philipines. The various grievances of which the French govern ment has to complain have been more than once mentioned separately, . but have not, we believe, been enumerated together. The empire of An nam comprises three principal divisions—Cochin China, Cambodia, and Tonking. The Euiperor Gia Long, in 1785, on the demand of France, agreed that the Christian religion should for the future be freely exercised in his States. His successors have, how ever, treated that stipulation with great contempt; and for the last thirty years, the Chi istains in their States have been most cruelly treated. French and Spanish priests, in particular, have been odiously persecuted, and in 1857, Mgr. Diaz, a Spanish bish op, was put to death at Tonking, by order of the Emperor Du Toe, now on the throne. That cir cumstance it is which has called for the interven tion of Spain. France desiring, as becomes a strong and powerful nation, to attempt conciliation, sent, in 1857, M. de Montigny to Cochin China to propose a treaty of friendship to the Emperor of Annam. The mission of that gentleman completely failed—the court of Hue, the capital of the empire, having refused to receive him, and even to return any reply to the letters of which he was the bearer, in presence of these grievances, and of others of the same kind which aggravate them, Fiance has been obliged to take the decisive part which has been adopted. We are assured that the expedition will disembark in the bay of Touraine, which forms part of the territory ceded to France bv the Em peror Gia Long at the end of the last "entury." An Irish paper says that at tlie dinner lately given to Cardinal Wiseman by the Roman Catholics of Waterford, the German band whose services were engaged on the occasion, not knowing that the health of the Pope was to precede that of her Majesty, and not understanding what the chairman said in proposing the toast, as soon as the Pope's health was proposed struck up "God save the Queen," whereupon there arose a scene of great confusion. The knives had not been cleared away, and some of the most demonstrative of the leeders or toasters grasped them in their hands, and stand ing on their seats, brandished them at the players, who were aloft in the gallery, and who, mistaking these signs for applause, played with increased vi gor. Taie confusion increased, and as the storm of sound continued, the poor players still misun derstanding this confusion, and supposing it was applause, played on. At length some of the com pany rushed furiously up the stairs to the gallery and attacked the musicians, who were glad to es cape without having their instruments broken. The Russian Government, says the Cologne Ga zette, having succeeded 111 fixing its frontiers on the side of China, along the hanks of the Amoor, is now endeavoring to regularize the limits of the western frontier of its possessions between Kraebta and the Government of Tomsk, where tlie dividing line still remains very uncertain. On that point the Chinese and the Russians constantly accuse each other of reciprocal encroachments. To put an end to such a state of thing, the Government of St. Petersburg will doubtless be able to conclude a second treaty, the first already giving it great advantages. Emigrants in great numbers are pro ceeding to the Lower Amoor. and hopes are enter tained of attracting to the right bank of that river the Chinese from the neighboring islands, bv the security which the Russian Government will "offer them. The model of an English Reform Bill, which has been prepared by the Reform Association, proposes totally to disfranchise 24 of the smallest boroughs, and to give only one member to 45 other boroughs which have returned two. Eleven of the largest boroughs, including Liverpool, Manchester, Brad ford, Leeds, and Sheffield, to return three members instead of two. Three boroughs, including SaW'ord, to return two members in place of one. Twenty tive towns to be enfranchised, and return one mem ber for each. These new boroughs to comprise Birkenhead, Burnley. Stalevbridgc, St. Helen's Barnsley, Keighley, Heywood, Doneaster, Darling ton, Congleton, Hyde, and Mansfield, and 13 other places. In the counties, 21 divisions to return three in the place of two members. Lancaster to have three divisions, with three members to each. The West Riding of York to be divided, and each of tha two divisions to return three members. A surplus of seven members to be divided between Ireland and Scotland. The New Orleans Courier, noticing the fact that gold and silver dollars of the United States coinage are a legal tender to any amount, says: The silver dollar has disappeared mysteriousl v, and few could tell how or what had become of it. The mystery is now solved. To give place to the gold dollar, the silver one has been melted up and coined into half dollars; and thus the government has imposed upon us an immense quantity of money A which is only a legal tender to a small amount. We are completely flooded with silver of this denomina tion. The banks will only receive ten dollars on deposit, and thus it is that our merchants haye to sell this specie, called money, at 2 per cent, die- " count. Our mint, we believe, has not east any silver pieces above the denomination of fifty cents for two years. The custom-house will not receive anything but gold for its dues, and still the coiners of our"mint are kept at work turning out $200,000 or $300,000 per week of this uncurrent commodity. It we had our old genuine currency, this would not be the case. The custom-house would be compelled to take it for the amount due her, and silver would be worth its intrinsic value. A new competitor with Cuba for the honors and benefits of annexation to the United States may sooner or later present itself in the person of the fair territory of Uruguay, in South America, which, so long rent by revolutions and civil war, yearns for the blessings of order, law, and progress, "under the flag of some stable Government. We have seen a claim put in for her as incomparativclv superior to ' Central America for colonization by white men; j not onlv rich in soil, but unsurpassed in climate and salubrity, and containing ninety thousand 1 square miles of territory, with onlv one hundred ■' and ihirtv thousand inhabitants.
