BALTIMORE, October 14, 1858. We have to note another very dull day in the Stock market, the sales falling short of $15,000. Although there appears to be no disposition on the part of capitalists to invest their means, the mar ket continues firm, and Baltimore and Ohio Rail road further advanced to-day about 50 cents per share. The sales of this stork comprised IS9 shares at sr>s%ft)ssK% regular way, and $58% buyer 30 days, closing at SSBJ # bid, $58% asked cash. Wc are still without any transactions to report in Northern Central; the closing rates were $20% bid, $21% asked regular way, % lower than yesterday. Canton advanced about %, but there were no sales effected, $20% being bid with s2l asked. Balti more city 6's sold at yesterday's price, $1250 bring ing 08%. Wc have no change to note in railroad bonds. /The operations to-day include only S6OO Bal timore and Ohio 18C7's at 01% and $2,500 Northern Central 1885's at CB. The market for fancies at New \oi k to-day was better and a general improvement is observable. — Erie advanced %; New A ork Central %; Reading Cleveland and Toledo 1; Rock Island %; Michi gan Southern %, and Harlem %. The demand for Treasury Notes continues to be good, and holders are firm. The 4% per cents, have been sold at % premium, and the 4% per cents, at % premium. Of the Three per cents, some $30,000 sold at % per cent, discount. Application has been made to Mr. Cobb for about a million of the Notes, which have been paid into the Custom House, if he wishes to re-issue them, at par for 4% per cents. We notice a private sale of about SIOO,OOO of the new Government 5 per cents, at 104. It is held to day at 104%. Ten thousand dollars of the acceptance of Messrs. Lawrence, Stone & Co., with the Bay State indorse ment, were sold at auction in Boston, a few days since, for 50%. Subsequently $45,000 of the same paper, held by one of the Boston banks, was sold at private sale for 50 per cent.

The quality of the cattle offer ing is generally very good, and shows a marked improve ment over the supply for a few weeks past. The day opened rather unpropitiously for business, the stormy ap pearanoe of the weather leading nearly all to expect but a slim attendance; contrary to the expectation, however, buyers began to make their appearance in considerable numbers, and during a good portion of the day, there was quite a number present. Prices are firm, and show but little variation from those of last week The increase in the supply did not have an in jurious effect on prices, as might he supposed, buyers being always ready to take advantage of such a state of the market to reduce their offers. An ac tive demand, and the superior quality of the cattle.de prived them of any opportunity, and gave owners of cat tle the advantage, which was maintained to the close.— Most of the sales were made at prices ranging from B#@ 9 cents, but a good many sales were made as high as 10 cents. A few very inferior cattle were disposed of at 7(5} 7# cents. About one fourth of the supply are New York State cattle —the number from this State being 1.100 head. It, with Illinois and Ohio, furnishes fully two thirds of the whole supply. The business at Bergen was very small, only 250 head having been sold. Prices re main without change of importance. MILCH COWS —Continue very dull, the demand being ex tremely small. Prices remain without change at $20(5}55, as to quality. VEALS —Are in good supply, with arrivals not in excess of the demand. Prices are unchanged, and are quite firm at last week's quotations SHEEP AND LAMBS. —The arrivals this week are very large, amounting to over 16,000 head. The supply, how ever, is not much larger than usual, as the excess is caused by a portion of the supply intended for last week's market being delayed on the way. The demand is fair, and prices remain without change at $2.50(5 6. SWINE. —The supply is not large, and the enquiry is only moderate. Prices are drooping, and the market somewhat easier. BEEF CATTLE.

CINCINNATI MARKET, Oct. 13 —FLOUR— The unset tled state of the market, for this article, noticed in our last, has continued to exist the past week, and though holders have made large concessions, from the prices cur re"t\ yet bu yers have, as a general thing, withdrawn from the market The large decline in New KM i hi?ntnd, , foptn Wt, (amounting to one dollar I>er nwntat IliSSrl fif f neral sur P rise an(l hitter disap ♦ onApi.i nvprfo- y tbe prices previously cur- IToiifnflour advance. The decline in Ohio flour in JNew \ork,the past week has been fullv 60c. per bbl., and even at the decline the demand ts hmit Ed and local. In this market, we cannot say that holders are pressing their stock on the market, because if they did the article would at once go down to $4 per bbl. The sales, however, have been confined to the pressing wants of lo cal dealers and the city bakers, at prices ranging from $4.50 to $4.00 for good to choice superfine, and $4.05 to $4.90 for extra, the latter rate for white wheat, closing dull and heavy at these rates, with a limited local de mand. The imports, the past week, were 14,730 bbls. and the exports 13,981 <!<>. WHISKEY.—A further decline has been established, with a dull and heavy market The current rate each day has been as follows: Wednesday 19; Thursday and Friday IS#; and Saturday, Monday and yesterday is cts., closing with a moderate demand at this rate. PROVISIONS.- The feeling in the market during the past week has been rather better; there has been a fair demand for IJacon, Bulk Meat and Mess Pork, from the East, and this, together with the active demand for Hogs for future delivery, at prices above those of Pork and Bacon, gives confidence to both buyers and sellers, sj that we must call the market very firm, with an unusually good de mand for the seaon. The stocks are being rapidly re duced. The transactions during the week were as follows: In Bacon, Wednesday, 2; 000 pieces plain llurns, salt petre. at 10 cents at Madison, packages included. Thursday. 10 hhds. sides at 8 cents. Friday, 40 hhds. Shoulders, at 5.% cents. Saturday. 50 hhds. Shoulders at the same rate, and *25 do. Sides at 7# cents. Monday. 20 hhds. Shoulders at 5% cents, and 30 do. Sides at 7% cents. Tuesday, (yesterday.) 100 hhds. Sides at 7% cents, and 10 do. Shoulders at 5% cents, closing with a fair but not very active demand at these rates, and holders generally asking 0 and 8 cents. In Mess Pork, Thursday, 200 bbls at $15.25 Monday. 800 do at sls; and yesterday 250 do. at the same rate. — All city brands. In Bulk Meat 15 hhds. Shoulders at scents, packed Fri day 50 do. at 5 # cents do; 100,000 lbs. heavy sides for clear ing at 7% cents, loose, in three lots. Saturday, 25 hhds. Shoulders; and yesterday 10 hhds. Shoulders, packed, at 5# ce.its. There was a good demand for Shoulders at the close at 5# cents, packed, and for Shies at7(t/7% cents, loose, the latter for those large enoijfch to clear, and the former for medium size for smoking. In Lard about 700 bbls. sold at 10 cents, but at the close the market was dull at this rate. INSPECTION OF FISH IX ALEXANDRIA—TRADE IN FISH. —In 1856, Mr. McLean, the Inspector of this city, inspected 9,226 barrels of Potomac Herring, including a few Shad. In 1857,1.186 barrels of Potomac Hering.and 6,940 from the British Provinces called eastern herring. In 1858 to the present time, 1.361 barrels of Potomac Her ring and 4,161 barrels of eastern herring. All herrings or fish ofany kind that come from the other States, undergo no inspection here unless demanded by the buyers, which is not often the case Large quantities are thus brought from Boston, New York and Baltimore, principally by the former city. Some come also from Maine. The inspections in 1856, of Potomac Herring was the largest for many years. The inspection here of eastern fish during 1857 and 1858, are the largest for many years—owing, donbtless, to the failures of the Potomac fisheries. MARKETS BY TELEGRAPH.

Letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, communicating the position of two points of rock southwest of the light house near New Haven, Conn., as determined by Lieut. Commanding W. G. Temple, U. S N., Assistant in the Coast Survey. COAST SURVEY STATION NEAR BANGOR. ME ,) September 13th, 1858. I SIR —I have the honor to communicate, for the benefit of navigation and for the information of the Light-house Board, tlie following extracts from a report by Lieut.Com manding W. G. Temple, U. S. X., Assistant in Coast Sur vey, in charge of the steamer 44 Corwin," on an examina tion for a rock reported to exist in tlie vicinity of New Ha ven, Conn.: "Agreeably to your instructions of June 19th and 25th, 1 stopped at New Haven to search for a rock reported by the pilots as not laid down upon the published charts, and 1 have now to submit the following report: At a distance of exactly one mile and a half (1%) nau tical mile due SW by compass from the Lighthouse, there are two sharp-pointed rocks, lying some ten (10) yards apart, and having but twelve and a half (12%) feet of wa ter on them at low tide, or when reduced to the plane of reference of the published chart, all around them is to be found from seventeen (17) to nineteen and a half (19%) feet. I would recommend that a striped buoy be placed on tlie spot, which can be accurately pointed out by tlie pilots by means of cross ranges, which I selected and showed them. 1 would also recommend that a black buoy be placed on the eleven (11) feet shoal, which lies about three quarters (% )of a mile to the northward of these rocks. Both of these buoys are much needed for safe naviga tion.*' I propose to call these rocks "Lurid ington Rocks," after the pilot who called attention to them; and would re spectfully request authority to publish this in the usual form as a notice to mariners, and that a copy of it may be transmitted to the Light-House Board. I am indebted to G. TV. Blunt, Esq., for the information which led to this examination. Very respectfully yours. A. li. BACHE, Supt. IT. S. Coast Survey. Hon. HOWELL COBB, Secretary of the Treasury.

From Wnsliiiisjtoii. WASHINGTON, Oct.. 14.—General Jerez to-dav had ! a long interview with Secretary Cass. Xotwith- ! standing that he had previously reported that he I had full power to ratify the Cass-Yrisarri treaty and to linn 11 y arrange all matters pertaining thereto without the necessity of referring it back to Nica ragua, it appears, from the official document first submitted by him to the State Department, and of which a translation was immediately made, that he is empowered only to act, "in order that the amendments made by the assembly of Nicaragua to the Treaty, may be substantially carried into ef fect." This is the language employed, but it is not considered sufficient to meet the demand of our j government. The Secretary of State will have ; a consultation with the President on the subject : to-morrow, and Gen. Jerez will soon thereafter be j informed of the result.

BALTIMORE, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1858. ! airy INTELLIGENCE. DISTRESSING CASUALTY. Yesterday- morning about 8 o'clock a distressing and fatal accident oc curred to one of our most estimable citizens, Mr. Wm. Bay-ley, and tlie report of it east a gloom over a large circle in the community. Tlie unfortunate man who was a slater by trade, was engaged in moling the dwelling of Mr. Fiancis T. King, on tlie Liberty road, near the * city limits. He togeth er with liis son, Mr. Jas. Barley, and ay oung man name Iletzel, a tinner, were standing upon a scaf folding some twenty five feet in height, upon which had been placed a quantity of tlie slates, which owing to tlie removal, for some unexplained pur pose, of a hoard which connected the poles of tlie scaffold, the weight proved 100 much for this structure, and they were all three precipitated to the ground. The deceased fell head foremost, and striking upon a rock, received such a concussion of tlie brain that lie expired within ten minutes, there being no apparent signs of conscious ness after the lamentable disaster. His son received a fracture of the right thigh, and although his injuries are of a severe and painful character, a fatal termination is not apprehended. Mr. Augus tus Wiidev, a workman upon the building, commu nicated the sad intelligence to tie' bereaved family of the deceased. Mr. Charles Phillips, accompanied by Sir George Barley, another son, immediately proceeded to the place for the purpose of removing the injured brother to their residence on Front street, near Gav, and also to take in charge the re mains of the deceased. Dr. Richard C. Thomas, who resides near where the accident occurred, was promptly on the ground and rendered professional aid to the injured son, as also to Mr. Iletzel, who escaped with some severe bruises upon the back. The deceased was in tlie sixty-first year of his age, and leaves a wife and seven children to mourn this lamentable occurrence. Only three hours pre vious he had left his family in good health and with every prospect of a continued life of pleasure to them and of usefulness to a community in which he was so well known and generally beloved. For years past he had been regarded as one of the most useful and honorable members of the Order oi Odd Fellows, every honor that could be conferred upon him by that Order in the State he had been the re cipient of, being a Past Grand Master of the State Grand Lodge. In everyoliicial position there lie proved himself eminently worthy of the trust, while as a member of that committee having in charge the orphans of deceased members, he was always one of the most useful. At tlie time of liis death some forty of these children of sorrow were under his charge. Ho was also an honored number of the Order of Masons, in which he was a Past Mas ter. His funeral will take place to-morrow-morning a 10 o'clock, and liis remains will be interred in Loudon Park Cemetery. A general meeting of the Order of Odd Fellows will bo held to-night at the Hail, on Gay street, to make arrangements for properly paying the last sad tribute to ids memory, and it is expected that the Grand Lodge of the State, Baylev Lodge, which was so named in liis honor. Washington Lodge, Jerusalem Encampment, and Ben Franklin Lodge of Masons, of eacli of which lie was a member, will follow liis remains to their final resting place. BOARD OK MISSIONS OF TIIE PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH. —ANNUAL MEETING. —The first business meeting of this board for the present annual session was held yesterday in Christ Church, Gay street, the following Episcopants being present: Bishop Meade, of Virginia; Bishop Otev, of Tennessee: Bish op DeLancy, of Western New York: Bishop Boone, of China; Bishop Green, of Mississippi; and Bishop Doane, of New Jersey. There were also some thirty clergymen and laymen, members of the board, in attendance. At eleven o'clock in the morning the usual lessons were read by the Rev. Dr. Ilawkes. of New York, and the Rev. Mr. Ilowe, of Philadelphia, after which an impressive and eloquent Missionary ser mon was preached by Bishop Win. Ileatheote De Lancv, of New York, from Ist chapter of Malachi, lltli verse: "For My Name shall be groat among the Heathen." After its delivery the communion was administered to a large number who were in attendance by Bishop Meade. The Board then organized for business, Bishop Meade in the chair, and the Ilcv. Dr. Van Pelt, of New York, Secretary. A committee to whom the subject had been re ferred, reported that there were two vacancies in the Board—one occasioned by the elevation of the Rev. Dr. Bowman, of Pa., to the position of a Bishop, and the other by the decease of the Rev. W. W. Bours, of Florida. On motion of Mr. F. Wharton, layman, of Phila delphia, a committee, consisting of Bishop Green, the Rev. Mr. Howe, and Mr. Huntington, was ap pointed by the chair to nominate persons to fill these vacancies. The committee having presented the names of the Rev. Richard Newton, of Pa., and the Rev. J. J. Scott, of Florida, these nominations were confirmed by a viva voce vote. Bishop Lee, from a committee on the Athens (Greece) Mission, submitted a majority report, which set forth that the management of the same, which is under the charge of the Rev. Mr. Hill, had been of a satisfactory character, and submitted a resolution to that effect. The Rev. Mr. Andrews, of Virginia, from the same committee, submitted a minority report ad verse thereto, alleging that the management of the Mission had not been in conformity with the usages of the church, or conducive to its interests, from the fact that the Rev. Mr. Hill had established and was conducting schools which were not under the entire supervision of the Episcopal church, but conformed to tlie regulations of the Greek church, in a great measure, and that the Greek catechism was used in these schools. The minority of the committee also submitted a resolution, providing for the appointment of a special committee of three to enquire into tlie ex pediency of changing the principle governing this mission. Pending tlie consideration and discussion of the two reports, the Board at 3 o'clock adjourned to meet at s)(j o'clock in Grace Church, where the dis cussion was continued throughout tlie afternoon session. ATTACK UPON DWELLINGS. —On Wednesday night, about lialf.past nine o'clock, a party of men attack ed tho duelling of Mr. Abratn flyman, southeast corner of Lombard and Exeter streets, breaking the windows by throwing stones, and defacing the property. Mr. Hymen had just retired for the night, but was too much alarmed bv the violence of their proceedings, to make any endeavor to prevent them in their destructive work. Tiie dwelling of Mr. Michael Murray, on the cor ner of Lombard and Concord streets, on Tuesday night about two o'clock, was broken into by about a dozen men, the bar was torn to pieces, all tlie liquors drank, the bottles and decanters broken, and every piece of furniture in the room smashed. They remained in the house for over half an hour, during which time Mr. Munay and family were locked up in the rooms of the second story, where they remained until tlie party left. They destroy ed property to the amount of SIOO. On the same night several houses on Bond street, between Lancaster and Thames streets, were sack ed by some Rough Skins, windows broken, and con siderable property destroyed. On yesterday Capt, Sparklin of the Eastern district , placed an extra force of Police in that section of tho citv. YIOLE.NT ASSAULT WITH AN ATTEMPT TO EXTORT MONEY. —Mr. Wm. 11. Hooper was attacked yester day afternoon about three o'clock on Canton avenue, near Bond street, by two men, named li. Galloway and Wm. Fountain Morgan. Morgan drew a pis tol, placed it at the head of Mr. Hooper, and de manded bis money. Mr. 11. refused to comply with the demand, calling for tiie assistance of a police man who was near, but the party struck him seve ral severe blows, cutting his head and lips quite badly. Dr. Dwindle was called in and dressed the wound. The police succeeded in arresting Gallo way, and Justice Audoun committed him for Court. Morgan is still at large. ANOTHER OUTRAGE. —Yesterday afternoon about 2 o'clock, information was conveyed to the firm of Messrs. Coleman A Bailey that a party of Rough Skins had taken possession of one of their four horse omnibuses, and were about driving away. Col. Bailey dispatched several of liis employees to prevent it, but the parties deterred them by point ing pistols and threatening to kill them. C'oi. Bai ley then went to the stables, remonstrated with the party and endeavored to remove the horses, when one of the men drew a revolver, placed it at his head, and using most, abusive language, swore he would blow his brains out if he attempted to un hitch the horses. Col. Bailey called on two police officers who were near, but received no assistance. At this stage of the proceedings, one of the crowd sprang upon tiie box and drove oil', with about twenty-five of his comrades. They returned the omnibus about live o'clock, with the windows all destroyed, the back axle-tree broken, and the horses very much abused. ROWDYISM. —During Tuesday night a party of row dies, not fearing tlie police and to the police invisi ble, patrolled the Northeastern section of the city, exercising their lawless propensities by firing of pistols, screaming, and otherwise disturbing the peace of the city and the quiet of tlie residents in that part ofthe town. About 12 o'clock some of them fired six shots at the store of Messrs. Cheno weth & Booth, on North Gay street, near Exeter, three balls striking the wall, near the store door, and three passing through tlie glass of the door and lodging in the ceiling. There was not the least provocation for this outrage, tlie perpetrators whereof escaped arrest. OUTRAGE. —On Tuesday .evening, between seven and eight o'clock, a well* known elderly gentleman, C'apt. Jas. Muliin, was stopped at the corner of Gay street and Belair market, by a man named Peter Mateer, who drew a large knife, at the same time demanding his monev. threatening to kill him if lie refused to deliver. The Captain fearing that his life would be taken, handed over ail the money he had in his possession. He was then allowed to pro ceed. MAN SHOT. —Captain Mitchell, of tlie Middle dis trict was sent for on Wednesday night about 12 o'clock to remove a man named John Smith, from the drug store of Mr. Roberts, who had been shot in the ankle and foot. The shooting took place near the corner of French and Forrest streets, and was entirely unprovoked. Capt. Mitchell had him re moved to his residence corner of Mulliken and Ann streets. THE RACKS. —The continued disagreeable weather induced another postponement of tlie races an nounced for Wednesday over tlie Central Course.— To-day there will be a three mile race for a purse of SSOO, the entries for which are Parachute, One Eyed Joe, Gov. Wicklifle, and Laura Spillraan, and as they are all deservedly noted racers, tlie eontest will be an interesting one. POLICE INTELLIGENCE.

Jerez was received by President Bu chanan as a Special and Extraordinary Plenipoten tiary from President Martinez. Speeches were made on both sides, bet it is very remarkable that neither of these oliicial orations is reported in The Union, though such is the practice. Mr. Buchanan said, among several significant tilings, that he re ceived Gen. Jerez with tlie greater pleasure he cause he was tlie bearer of the treaty, as concluded between the two Governments, and as ratified by the supreme legislative authority of Nicaragua. Previously to being received, however, a bargain was struck between General Jerez and the Secre tary of State, by which the former agreed to de liver tlie Cass-Yi issarri Treaty as ratified by the Constituent assembly, to apologize for tlie Mar tinez manifesto exposing the purposes and policy of this Government to France and England, and to sign a convention providing indemnity for the murder of Americans during the Filibuster war. Now Gen. Jerez has, since entering into those stipulations, sprained liis ankle, and lias not been able, as he says, to visit the State Department, but he has been able to repudiate every one of the en gagements into which he has entered. He now says his reception was wholly unconditional, and declares that the President, in his speech, said nothing about the delivery of the Cass-Yrissarri Treaty, and that lie does not intend to deliver it.. This new turn of affairs lias an origin in circum stances which give to the Administration grave ap prehensions. Since the reception of Gen. Jerez he has been visited bv Col. Perez, the Private Secretary of President Martinez, and who is ap pointed Secretary to the Extraordinary Embassy of which Jerez is the nominal chief, it is understood here that Perez is appointed as a spy upon liis su perior, and that he is in the interest of the Belly party. As to Senor Jerez, he lias been purchased up by Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt. Of course, it is not for me to make myself responsible for these various statements, but they arc believed by those representing interests opposed to Belly and Vanderbilt. Finding that Gen. Jerez had fallen into the slough ot Jineaae, Gen Cass wrote to him that, unless he peformed the conditions of his reception, "liis mission would be terminated;" that is, that he would be sent oft—dismissed. To this tiie Plenipoten tiary has yet made no other reply than that liis leg is very had. Whether Cass will let him off on a lame leg, remains to be seen. But he threatens, and the President does the same, that, unless Jerez comes up to the scratch, he will take bodily posses sion of the Isthmus route, and enforce the treaty which lie was at so much trouble to make. In all this you will perceive a margin for a good deal of sharp correspondence and some sharp work. I know Gen. Cass and Mr. Buchanan a great deal better than some of the operators in Transit con tracts, and I have no faith whatever that they will do anything more serious than to fret and to talk. But I may state as acurrent expectation that Jerez will be promptly dismissed, and that San Juan on the Atlantic, and Uaelejo on the Pacific side, will be occupied by American forces within four month*. \\ hen Douglas made his first Chicago speech in July last, the Washington Union expressed great astonishment that he should have re-opened tlie set tled issues of the last session of Congress. In this matter the Union was sincere, for it was aware of a fact of which the public was ignorant. There had been a negotiation between Mr. Douglas and tlie President, in which they mutually agreed to ignore the past. Mr. Douglas stipulated not to dig up Lecoinpton, nor attack the Administration, nor to assail the English bill; while on iiis part, the President engaged to let the Judge and Illinois poli tics alone until after the election. These articles were upon certain conditions, which have riot been divulged, but one of tlie conditions was violated by the President before Douglas reached Chicago. Oct. 13. —Gen. Cass has recovered from illness suf ficiently to attend to business to-day. He had an in terview with Jerez and Herran at the Department. Jerezstill refuses to deliver the Cass-Yrissarri trea ty, unaltered. Cass informed him positively that no amendments would be admitted. Jerez promised to exhibit new powers to-morrow, at noon, to which time the conference adjourned. If no agreement is concluded, Jerez will be in formed that liis mission is at an end. Mr. Buchanan was lately petitioned by distin guished Democrats of New York to suspend hostili ties against Douglas. He replied : "The unity of the Democratic party shall be pre served, I hough you lose every Congressinal dis trict of New A*ork." The President was prepared for the disaster in Pennsylvania by his recent visit. [Correspondence of the New York Htrald.\ Oct. 13. —The Postmaster General lias arranged with Clias.

It will be remembered that at the time the U. S. frigate Niagara first visited England the British authorities determined to build a naval vessel lar ger than she is. Accordingly they put the Mersey on the stocks, and it is only last month that she was launched. She is not, after all, equal in size, strength or model to our crack frigate.— New York Times. Helene Botzaris, for some years one of the Maids of Honor of the Queen of Greece, and so conspicu ous for iier extraordinary beauty as to become one of the most attractive lions at Athens, and to cause a just sensation amongst the English tourists visit ing the city of Minerva, is the daughter of the Su liot hero. She is now married to a Frenchman (formerly a member of the corps of the gallant Philhelienes, at present Colonel in the Greek army and head of the Military Academy at the Pirams ) and lias become the mother of a blooming family. The police of Manchester, Eng., have just arrest ed and handed over to the military authorites a young man named Tolc, who appears to have de serted in March, 1855, from the trenches before Sebastopol to the Russians, and given such informa tion to the enemy as led to the slaughter of his cap tain and 30 comrades. Another soldier deserted the same time as Tole, and died the day after they joined the enemy. The papers announce the death on. Tuesday, at Quan ton, of Lady Bowring, wife of kH. M.

BALTIMORE PRESBYTERY, j The Baltimore Presbytery (Old School) met at J tlie Fstrcet Presbyterian Ciiurch,in Washington, on Tuesday night, the 12th instant, and was opened bv j a discourse delivered by Rev. J. H. Kauffman, of Baltimore from Hebrews, 12.14: "Follow peace | with all men, and holiness, without which no man | can see tlie Lord." | Tlie business meeting was then organized by making choice of Rev. X. C. Burt, of Baltimore, for .Moderator, and Dr. J. D. Stewart, of this citv, as Secretary; and, after some other formal business, the meeting adjourned to !> o'clock on Wednesday morning. Having reassembled pursuant to adjournment on Wednesday morning, the meeting was opened with prayer by Rev. Mr. Carnahan. Tlie committee of commissioners to General As sembly made their report, which was accepted. Tlie Rev. Frederick W. Brauns presented a cer tificate of dismission from the Ontario association, which was received, and the Presbytery proceeded to ids examination, which, being satisfactory, he was received as a member of the Baltimore Presby tery. The Rev. George W. Kennedy presented a certificate of dismission from tlie Presbytery of Wilmington, N. C., which was received, and the Presbytery proceeded to his examination, which, being satisfactory, he was received as a member of the Presbytery of Baltimore. The Rev. Dr. Hill, of tlie Baptist church, and the Rev. Dr. Hodge, of Richmond, Va., were invited to sit as corresponding members of the Presby tery. Rev. J. W. E. Kevr was dismissed to join the ; Presbytery of Northumberland. Dr. Tustin presented a letter from the Rev. Dr. | Eckard asking that tlie pastoral relation between him and tlie second Presbyterian church of Wash- j ington be dissolved. The proceedings of tlie con gregation were also presented, uniting with tlie pastor in liis request. After some discussion, tlie request was granted, and the relation was dissolved. Dr. Eckard goes to accept a professorship in tho college at Easton, Pa. Dr. Bocock moved that the Rev. Mr. Hitchcock be restored to the oliice of the Gospel ministers.— After listning to a letter sent to the Presbytery by the applicant for restoration, and the remarks of those who knew him best, it was resolved that the Rev. Mr. Hitchcock be restored to the ministry and to the fellowship of his brethren. After a call was made on the several churches to report tlieir number of deacons, the Presbytery went into a free conversation on the state of reli gion in the churches until the hour of ad journment, at 2 o'clock, to meet again at half past -i o'clock in tlie afternoon for prayer and exhortation. Presbytery reassembled at 4) 7 o'clock to spend an hour in devotional exercises, when prayers were offered by Revs. Mr. Gibbs, Purviance and Colton, and -iiort addresses by Revs. Mr. Carnahan,Backus, and Bronze. in continuation ofthe meeting of the Presbytery, Rev. Mr. Burt, of Baltimore, delivered a discourse in the F street church, on the gist and oliice work of the third person in the Trinity, from St. John's Gospel, 16, 7.

About 12 o'clock to-day (Wednesday) the atten tion of the passers by tlie City Ilall was attracted by the Happing of a little red (lag banging from the balcony of the City Ilall, on which was inscribed the words, "Auction Sale, this day, by Thomas Yeitch," reminding every body of tiie famous sale of City Hall furniture, Ac., to satisfy the de mands ofthe Lowlier claim. This sale was to. oc cur on the 4th day of October inst., but has been postponed from day to da\ until the present time. At one o'clock there were probably seventy per sons in the Governor's Room, in which tlie first sale of property was to be made: al; kinds of speculations were rife as to who would be the purchasers, and whether the whole tiling would not end iu a farce; while others deprecated the action of the city au thorities in permitting the sale. Ail speculations were soon routed, however, by the auctioneer, Mr. Veitcli, who mounted the cliafr and stated the cause of tiie sale, the terms (which was cash down) and tlie articles in the Governor's Room, including the portraits of the Presidents ot the United States, the Governors of this State, and other eminent men ofthe past and present ages, which lie said would he sold in one lot. Bidding then commenced at SIO,OOO, and run up to $30,000, which was the highest bid, and was made by Richard Scott, Esq., Clerk in tlie Mayor's oliice, to whom all tlie property was sold. The sale of the other property in the City Hall was then postponed until further notice. The crowd then began to disperse, somewhat disappointed that they had not had a chance to bid on some of the pictures separately. Some alleged that it. was not a bona lide sale, but was only put through tii" motions to raise the wind for Lowber. It is understood that the bid of Mr. Scott was made at tlie instance of the Mayor, who lias done every thing possible in his power to prevent tlie sale, as lie values the portraits very highly, and is opposed to their changing hands. Mr. Lowber was present , during tlie sale, and made the first bid of $1(1,000 — Judge Barber, his counsel, was also present. During the sale, Deputy Sheriil' Vultee presided. The pictures and furniture were in a state of great confusion, in consequence of the late fire from tlie ett'ects of which they have not yet recovered. It is stated that previous to the sale, Mr. Lowber called upon Mr. A. V. Strut, Citv Chamberlain, and made a last but fruitless effort, to obtain the payment of the judgment for $196,000 in cash so as to prevent tlie sale. Mr. Stout intimated tiiat lie would be willing to advance tlie money on a Comptroller's warrant, which, lie would bold a year; hut on ap plication to the Comptroller found liim more dog gedly determined not to pay than ever. So Mr. Stout could do nothing for Mr. Lowber, and the sale proceeded. Mr. Scott paid tlie fifty thousand dollars down, and Mr. Lowber left the hall with the money in his pocket. PROGRESS OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. If one desires to obtain a true judgment of tlie progress of the Sandwich Islands during the pre sent century from Idolatory to Christianity, from barbarism to a high state ot' civilization, lie should carefully peruse tlie two newspapers now published at Honolulu —the Polynesian and the Commercial Admrtiser —which are well printed and ably con ducted papers, in addition to the editorial and news columns, lie should not forget of all things tlie advertisements, for they often give the best idea of the life and business in tlie community where they are issued. In tlie paper before us, which was printed only two months since, we have announcements of packets to various parts of the world: expresses to California, the United States, and Europe; of daguerrean and ambrotype gal leries; of a law term of the First Judicial Circuit Court, (Island of Oahu;) of the meeting of various Masonic Lodges; of Oregon hams ami California cheeses for sale; of a depot for sale of forty differ ent newspapers published in California, Oregon, and Washington Territory; of a reward of SI,OOO for the detection of tlie persons who robbed the custom-house: ofthe sale ofthe first volume of the Hawaiian Law Reports, comprising many of tlie most importantdecisions and rulings ofthe superior courts of the Kingdom during the ten years ending with 1850: of the meeting of the Hotel Keepers' Club; insurance notices; billiard tables for sale; and also every imaginable comfort and luxury, in cluding jewelry of every kind. A coffee plantation containing fifty thousand coffee trees, upon 1,050 acres, is offered at a bargain. In fact, a complete map of busy civilized life is furnished to the reader. Nearly the entire trade of these rapidly advancing islands is with the United States.— Boston Journal. FATAL STEAMBOAT COLLISION NEAR NEW PORT. On Tuesday evening, at about lialf-past eight o'clock, the steamer Empire State ran down and destroyed a small sloop, the '"Exchange, of Dart mouth," bound from Newport to Bristol. The acci dent occurred oft" Sandy Point about ten miles north east of Newport, the steamer being on her passage from Fall Kiver. Capt. Ford, of Bristol, K. 1., who had chartered the sloop for the trip, was a passenger on board of her, and was lost. The crew, consisting of three men. were taken off bv a boat from the steamer, the sloop still floating,"al though a complete wreck; her mainsail only being saved by the steamer's boat. Captain Foul was floating near the stern of the steamer for lifteen minutes after the collision. It was not very dark, yet he could not be seen, and his cries for help excited intense interest among tho passengers to save hiin. Chairs and life-preserv ers were thrown to him, but he failed to reach them, or it was feared that some of them struck him, and before the small boat could be got afloat •and brought round the stern, he had sunk for the last time. There seemed to be an unaccountable delay in getting the boat afloat, suggesting to the passengers the little reliance to be placed in the boats ot a steamer in case of accident requiring their use.— The steamer was detained an hour by the sad oc currence. After it was ascertained that Captain Ford could not be saved, cries were heard from the wreck, which could not be seen, and was supposed to have been sunk entirely, by which the small boat was put in direction, and in something more than hall an hour from the collision, brought the men on board.—JVcic York Evening Poet, 13tA inst, The Kcv. S. N. Evans, pastor of tho Presbyterian Church at Lane, l)e Kalh county, Illinois, was in stantlv killed by lightning, a few yards from his own door, on the 30th ultT He was struck on the head, the fluid tearing his hat in pieces, crisping the hair around his neck, passing out under the chin, then striking the breast and descending to the ground. The form of a key he carried was dis tinctly impressed on the pocket, and a hole like a buliet hole was pierced through the sole of the shoe. Mr. Evans has left a wife in feeble health, and three small children to mourn his sudden death. FREE-TRADE IX KXGLAXT). [From Lonitmi Cotton Plnnt.] Wo received the first number of a publication termed tlie Cotton SnpjAy Jtcportcr, issued in Man chester, and, as it appears, with the sanction of the Cotton Supply Association. Before proceed ing with our notice of this "free-trade" (?) docu ment, it may lie as well to pay our respects to the Cotton Supply Association. Be it known, then, that we are in favor of the Supply Associa tion, and hope most sincerely that any quantity of Surat cotton may be obtained from India, because, being free-traders, we conceive that the greater the supply of Indian cottons the higher the price of Americans. If Manchester could rely upon four million bales per annum from India <if Surat cot ton, at say f'Xd. or 3d. per pound, the English spinner could very well afford to give 9d. or lOd. a pound for American cotton to work up with the Indian article, because without our staple the Su rat is almost utterly valueless. In other words, under a bountiful supply of cotton from India, I American short staple cotton would hold the same relation to Surat that Sea Islands now hold to the American Middlings Hence we are favorable to the Cotton Supply As sociation of Manchester in tlie sense of pounds, sliil I lings and ponce. But we are favorably inclined to the Association, and wish it well, because it is des- | tined to clear the decks of tlie tropical labor craft j of much useless and unnecessary material. Not many years hereafter (liis society will be compelled to make a report, and we opine that the report then j made will bring England face to face with frce negroism. Cotton lands will be found, cotton cli mate iully ascertained as existing, but labor—or ganized labor—will not be found. The issue thus j narrowed to one point, the final solution will be speedy. Resting upon our belief, we know what the alternative must be. England will then be call ed upon to abandon her cotton trade, her cotton in dustry, and the imperial interests bound up in them, or abundon frce-n6j*roism. It needs no orcjit knowledge of human nature, and of Saxon human nature in particular, to anticipate what tlie judg ment will be. Returning to tlie publication before us we find 1 the following: "It is expected that the philanthro pist will find these communications to enlist his ' warm sympathies, in the prospects offered for elevating the condition of the colored race; and the man of science may discover new sources of investigation in fields hitherto comparatively un known." Is there a merchant in Liverpool, or a mannfac- ! turcr in Manchester who sells goods upon "friend ship.''' Is there a banker in Loudon who discounts 1 paper or loans money upon benevolence? What is the fret trade of the Manchester school? Is it not the urrestricted play of human interests with- 1 out the inter yen I ion or interference of government? II the Brit* Government has a right—we mean a sound, commercial, free trade right-to interfere j in the "supply of cotton upon the score of human- ! itv, lias it not the same right to interfere with the "demand." If it is proper to declare as piracy the obtaining J'slave" labor to produce "slave" grown cotton, is if not equally proper to declare as "piracy" the sale of the goods made of slave grown cotton to pirates, or at least to heathens and cannibals? If ( Jovernment can intervene in "supply" it certainlv can in "demand." If Government can be called upon to appropriate from the taxation of the coun try money to grow "free" grown cotton, it can give, in the shape of a bonus or other drawback, money upon the export or re-export of 44 free" grown cotton goods. We are looking forward liopefullv to the time when in the United States there will be no such relic of barbarism as a Cus tom House, and when the present horde of revenue collectors who consume our substance by proving upon our commerce will be turned adrift to seek a proper livelihood. Rut looking to members of the free-trade school of Manchester as our allies, can we find either consolation or consistency in that spirit of Policy versus Principle, which character izes the British tariff schedule, which taxes our tobacco, taxes French wines, taxes American lum ber and timber, and now, in the great question of cotton supply, introduces Government action in the place of individual enterprise? It may be pre sumptuous in nnWmerican free-trader to make such a suggestion; but, instead of these Associations, allow the whole question to be left to the play of human interests, and Manchester would soon receive a bountiful supply of cheap cotton. CABLE EXKERIEXCE.— -The Philadelphia Press ad ministers consolation to the Cable victims, as fol lows : It is matter of historical notoriety, that of all flic submarine Cables yet laid, several have been fail ures. at first. It was so with the line from Dover to Calais, with those from Holyhead to Dublin, from Portpatrick to Donaghadee, and, more espe cially, with that from C-agliare, in Sardinia, to Bona, in Algeria. The line through the Black Sea, between Verna and the Crimea, finally was broken, in a tempest, after it had been a year in operation. Of the forty-three submarine Cables, essayed be fore the Atlantic Cable reached its termini, six failed in process of laving; four subsequently, and one of the Hague Cables is now under repair—leav ing forty-two in perfect working order. It was stated before the (English) Institution of Civil En gineers, that of tlie ten total failures, three were strictly light Cables, with no outer wires, being the only uncovered Cables tried; and the two failures of heavy Cables, after submersion, arose from their being too light. Several Cables had, it is true, been broken by anchors, in consequence of the ab sence of.sufficient iron "protecting wires, but these had been immediately repaired, and were now in regular work. Of the six failures in submerging, two occurred with the Mediterranean cables, in the years 1555-SC, when 250 miles wore lost, of the value of about £70,000; a third with the Newfoundland cable; a fourth with a light cable from Portpatrick to Dona ghadee; a fifth with a heavy calile on the same route; and, lastly, the Atlantic cable, in 1857. Of these, the Newfoundland and tlie heavy Portpatrick and Donaghadee cables, had been recovered; and during tlie present summer tlie raising of tlie Medi terranean cable was to have been attempted. The public feel much disappointed because the Atlantic telegraph does not work. What would they have said if, after working for a month or so, like the Calais and Dover line, it suddenly sus pended all action, putting an end, for a season, to the communication to which the people in each country had become familiarized? That is what, were the Atlantic telegrapli at full work, with a single cable, we should be liable to, at any mo ment —indeed, at every moment. ALLEGANY COUNTY. — For the week ending Sat urday. Oct. 9th, 3,470.16 tons of coal were shipped over the Cumberland and Pennsylvania Railroad, 4,239.03 tons over the road of the George's Creek Coal and Iron Company, 3,396.09 over tlie road of the Cumberland Coal and iron Company, and 1.075.10 tons over the Hampshire Coal and Iron Company's road, making an aggregate for the week from the whole coal region of 12,181. 1S tons. Total shipments for tlie year from the entire region 512.350,03 tons. Some of the early sowing of fall grain will have to be re-sowed, the excessive drought having com pletely destroyed the young shoots. This, however, has only occurred in certain localities. At a meeting of the Board of Directors of Cum berland City Bank, held on tlie 29th ult., Mr. James T. Norton was elected President of the bank, in the place of James M. Schley, resigned. It is now in contemplation to establish a paper at Frostbnrg, to be called tlie Frostburg Gazette ami Miners' Record, by Col. John C. Piekeli. It is to be neutral in politics. The potatoe crop this year, though an average one, does not yield as abundantly as was anticipated in the early part of the season, owing to the long continuance of the drought. The potatoes gener ally are small, but of superior flavor. Wild game is said to be quite abundant in the mountainous sections of this county. A few days since a party of three gentlemen bagged twenty live pheasants, besides other game, in two days. Another accident has occurred to the machinery of the steam canal pump. Tlie pinion wheel was again broken, on Monday, and several days must elapse before it can be repaired. A fine fall of rain on Monday and Tuesday con tinued for twenty-four hours, and has done an im mense amount of good. The Potomac and Will's creek have been somewhat improved in the way of water, rendering boating a little better than for some time past. Boating, owing to low water, is at a low ebb. But few boats are departing for tide-water. Tho weather continues mild and pleasant in this locality. PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY. —The Planters' Adrocatt says: On Saturday evening Mr. Judson O. War ner, formerly of this place, residing on Bridge street, Georgetown, was sitting reading a newspaper to his wife when all at once he stopped, coughed, and threw lip a quantity of blood from his chest. In a few minutes lie was a corpse. His health had been infirm for some time. Aged about forty years, and leaves a wife and seven children. Mr. Judson Richardson lias disposed of his prop erty, known for a number of years as the "Union Hotel." to Mr. James H. Crandell, by whom the establishment will hereafter be conducted. Price $3400. Mr. Crandell has disposed of his dwelling house, near the Catholic Church, to Mr. William Roth staine. Tlie price paid was SI7OO cash. Col. W. \V. W. Bowiehas disposed ofhis "Locust Grove" Farm, containing two hundred and seven teen acres at something over eighty dollars per acre, to Robert Bowie, (of Walter,) Esq. Cosr OK ENGLISH ELECTIONS. —The cost to Sic Ed ward Bulwer Lytton of his last election for Hert fordshire, England, followed immediately upon his appointment to the otliee of Secretary of State for the Colonics, was no less than £1,147 12s. .2d. The election was uncontested; only eight days intervened between the issue of the Speaker's warrant and the day of election; there was no polling; the nomina tion took place in a field in the vicinity of Hertford, in the open air, and the candidate addressed the constituency from a wagon, thus dispensing with hustings; and yet, despite circumstances so favora ble to an inexpensive return, this purely formal proceeding, consequent upon his accepting an office under the Crown, subjected him to an outlay of nearly £l5O a day for each of the eight days, a Sun day included, or nearly a fourth of his annual sal ary of £5,000 as Colonial Minister. THE CHATHAM (CANADA) SLAVE CASK. —On Tues day, sth inst., the preliminary investigation in this case, before Thomas McCreaj Esq., Police Magis trate of ( hat ham, was resumed pursuant to adjourn ment. Mr. George Duck, County Attorney, con ducted the prosecution against the parties charged with forcibly abducting the slave boy of Mr. Mer win-—the charge being that the boy was carried off against his own earnest desire to remain with his master. Mr. McLean appeared for the defense. The Ailcrrtucr states that, after a good deal of evidence had been taken, two white and six colored men were bound over to stand their trial at the Assizes, which will be held on the 18th inst. One of the white men is a Mr. Goodyear, who, it appears, headed the party that liberated the boy. QUARANTINE A NATIONAL REGULATION.—' The Cham ' ol Commerce of Acw Pork, through its com mittee, reports to the Mayor in regard to the onerous charges on shipping at Quarantine. It is recommended that the whole subject ought to be placed under the control of the natioual Govern ment, or the State should so modify her laws as to preclude the clashing of diverse interests. Fear is expressed that, in a little while, no cotton will be sent there from the South, and very little sugar from the West Indies. CIIAMDERSBI'KO AND HAOKRSTOWN RAILROAD.— The work on the railroad from Chainhersburg to Hagerstown is rapidly progressing. When this is completed, it is anticipated a further branch will be made to connect with the Baltmore and Ohio Railroad. The distance from Hagerstown to the Baltimore and Ohio will not exceed some 14 or 15 miles. The country is level and the road will need but very little grading. The turnpike is suffi ciently wide for one track of railroad along its side and still leave ample room for all turnpike travel. PRICE TWO CENTS THE SEAT OF WAR, IN WASHINGTON TERRITORY. We have received from our special army corres pondent, says the San Francisco Alia California, news down to August 22, at which time the last express left Col. Wright's command on Snake river: One field work (Fort Taylor) is finished, and to morrow morning, at daylight, we commence cross ing Snake river. Then the campaign begins, for the Indians declare if we cross the river wc shall none of us cross back. This remains to be seen. Two days ago (August 20) three Indians ap peared on the opposite bank, waving a bloody shirt as they rode -tip and down. After going through this performance for about half an hour, they fired a gun at our camp and rode off. This, we suppose, was intended to be an Indian declaration of war. The truth is, the hostile tribes are in the highest state of confidence from Col. Steptoe's defeat, and it will take a severe thrashing to reduce them to order. The hostiles who went down to Walla-Walla, to see Col. Wright, said they had uo wish to make peace; that the whites were always talking of war, but always wanting to make peace, and the first to sue for it. This is too true, and shows the neccssi tv of teaching them a new lesson. Their confi dence, however, may induce them to meet us, when we shall have an opportunity of wiping out the disgrace of the past. The time for temporizing with these tribes is over. For some nights past we have seen the light of fires ahead, which shows that the Indians are busy in burning the grass on our liue oi march, to im pede our column, by cutting oil' forage for our ani mals. Fortunately we had rain last evening, and it is raining again to-day. This may save some ot the grass for us. We know nothing definite, but it is said our com paign is to last about forty days. AVe take out sup plies for that length of time, and it would he very difficult to send back for more. It is of course im possible for our commander to form any definite plan, but we shall have to be governed entirely by circumstances. The report in camp is that Col. AVright is going to remain out all winter, and es tablish a post on the Pelouse river where he can bivouac. No wagons can cross Snake river. Now, as to our fighting force. AVe have about twenty men at Fort Walla-W alia with Col. Step toe, and Major AVyse's company at Fort Tejon. so that we have left about 630 men to take the field. The attaches, inula packers, Ac., number about 200 men. Resides these we have three Nez Percez chiefs and thirty warriors, our allies. As soon as we cross Snake river these will be sent out as spies and to make a reconnaissance. It is said in camp that Col. Wright is going to push forward with all possible rapidity lam afraid we shall receive no more letters until some decisive blow is struck, as they may not consider it safe to send an express out to us. Inthatcase wc, of course, can send no letters in, and your next news of us will probably come from the Indian runners across the country. LECTURE BY LOLA MOXTEZ. . [From the. A'eiv York Tribune.] A large and enthusiastic audience of ladies and gentlemen assembled last evening at Hope Chapel to listen to a lecture by Aladame Lola Montez on Rome, the proceeds of which were announced to be appropriated to assist in the re-erection of the Church of the Good Shepherd, which was destroyed by the tornado of last summer. In reviewing the history and doctrines of the Church of Rome, the lecturer regarded them as a compromise between Christianity and heathenism. Its importance she recognised as the great conservative element during the middle ages. These passed and political order once more restored, the mission of the Church had been to retard progress. Its worship of relics was alluded to, after which the lecturer drew a compari son between the material prosperity of Catholic and Protestant countries. In conclusion, Madame Lola said: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN : The advertisements have informed you that the proceeds of this lecture are to be given to the Rev. Ralph Iloyt, to aid him in rebuilding his free church for the poor. The pa pers have also apprised you that some of the clergy have cast reflections upon the worthy rector, for his willingness to receive the sum which your pa tronage of this lecture yields, which is certainly a piece of bigotry, intolerance, cruel to the poor, and meddlesome impertinence, which I have never be fore witnessed, even in the most illiberal Catholic countries of the old world. [Applause.] AA'ho are these men that would bar you and me from doing a good act, and would rather lock the doors of com fort and instruction on the poor, than that they should be blessed by a hand which will not be moved by their dictation ? [ Loud applause.] How many churches will be built, and how many poor will be fed, by money which they will give. [Applause. A A'oice: Not one in a thousand.] It is reserved for me to read tlicso blind bigots a lesson, and to tell them that they are not Christians but Pharisees. They belong to the same class of hypocrites who condemned the Sav iour because ho ate and drank with publicans and sinners [applause], and tlicv appear to be just a? full of the headstrong devif of intolerance as they were in the old time. They are certainly very impudent and very bold devils when they enter into the breasts of professing Christians in such a free and enlightened land as America. Such big oted intolerance would be bad enough in Timbuetoo or the Fcjee Islands, but in America it is like a . foul spot on the bright sun. [Applause.] lam going to Europe in a few days, and when I come back, which I certainly will do, [applause] may he I will give a course of lectures to raise a fund, to send missionaries to Christianize the clerical Pharisees, [loud laugh and applause], who had I rather the poor and desolate should not have the | gospel preached to thorn, than that the means | should be furnished by your patronage of your | humble servant. I entreat the prayers of this j congregation for all such benighted and miserable sinners. [Applause.] At the close" of her lecture Madame Lola Montez was greeted with the most enthusiastic applause, which she was twice obliged to acknowledge. NEGRO PRINCES AT PARlS. —Three young negroes, sons of petty kings in the district of Bengal, were about a year ago sent from St. Louis to the college at Algiers, where they were placed at the expense of the French (Government. They already speak French perfectly, and are quite accustomed to French usages. Having recently been brought up to Paris, they were presented to' Prince Napoleon, and his imperial highness, three days ago enter tained them at dinner. They conducted themselves extremely well, and replied to all questions with a tact and good sense which occasioned surprise.— They are named Nafo, Macran and Coury. The first, the eldest, is delicate and of low stature, but he is the most intelligent. Macran, fourteen years of age, writes French tolerably well; he talks less than the other two, but is gay, and sometimes smiles satirically at what his companions sav. Coury, is not quite twelve,is tall and strong, is good naturcd, but rather melancholy. He savs, "Nafe is the best instructed of the three, but Macran is the wisest." The little fellows, notwithstanding their youth, display great tact in avoiding direct replies to certain questions. "Of what religion are you ?" asked the Prince to Macran. "We are not Mussulmans" was the reply. "What then is your religionasked the Prince, turning to Nafe, the most learned of the three. "If French missionaries were sent to our country, we should all be Chris tians," was the answer. The fact is that they are idolaters; though, from mixing with Mussulmans and Christians at Algiers, they have begun to lose their faith in the paternal idols. RED REPUBLICANISM IN LONDON. —The London Star mentions that on the 22d ult. a considerable number of Knglish and French Democrats assem bled together on the invitations of "the Interna tional Committee," to commemorate the establish ment of a Republic and the overthrow of monarchy in 17H2. The hero of the recent State trial, Dr. Si mon Bernard, presided. Mr. Pyat depicted the present state of France in very dark colors. Only one Englishman spoke, a Mr. Jlackle, wh attributed the failure of the first French revolution to the murder of the "immor tal" Robespierre by the middle classes, and ex pressed bis distrust of the leaders of the revolu tion of '4B—Lamartine, Louis Blanc, and Ledru ltollin. According to the speaker, Louis Blanc ought to have shot Lamartine; and, as he did not. do so, he has forfeited the confidence of all true Democrats. The Genoese Dine Popoln, the last republican pa per in Italy, having been killed by the Sardinian Government, Mazzini has commenced the publica tion, in London, of an Italian paper, to appear twice a month, entitled Pcnsiero ed Azione, (Thoughtand Action,) in the last number ot which appears a manifesto. Of this paper the Tribune says: Instead of inquiring into the great social agencies on which the Revolution of I*4B-11 foundered, and of trying to delineate the real conditions that, during the' last ten years, have silently grown up and combined to prepare anew and more powerful movement, Maz zini, relapsing, as it appears to us, into his antiqua ted crochets, puts to himself an imaginary problem which, of course, cannot but lead to a delusive so lution. With him the all-absorbing question re mains still—why the Refugees, as a body have failed in their attempts at renovating the world, and still he busies himself with advertising nostrums for the cure of their political palsy. ° EMANCIPATION IN MISSOURI.— The following ex ti act lioin a letter from Missouri, wefare afraid is too true; * "A majority of the Americans voting their ticket are pro-slavery; and emancipation, even in St. Louis, is dead as a mackerel. Its advocates in Mis souri now are as poor and mean as rats upon an empty shelf. Never was there a great party more triumphant than the pro-slavery party lias been in this August election.— Cincinnati Gazette. 1 he vessels of the Paraguay expedition are fur nished with a novel aft'air in a new kind of sea an chor. It is about fifteen feet lonjx, and is construct ed something like the leaf of an umbrella, braced with wood, and made of canvas; the centre is iron, and by throwing this machine overboard in a heavy sea, the ship would be instantly hove to, were the water ever so deep.— Boston Traveller. The London Gazette announces that the Queenhas ordained a special statute for appointing the Earl ol Elgin a Knight Grand Cross ofthe Bath. It also announces that Captains Aldham and Precdy (of the Atlantic Cable Expedition) and the lion. Fred crick Bruce have been appointed Commanders of the Bath. 1 TALBOT COUNTY— The "Kennedy Farm," sold on last Tuesday by R, C. Hollvdav. Esq., Trustee, was purchased by Mr. J. B. Bennett, at sls per acre; the House and lot on Washington street, Easton, by Mr. V in. T. Hardesty, for $1250 —and the small house and lot on Harrison St. bv Jas. LI. Martin, for s2so.— Easton Star. The late collision on the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad, occurred on MeCallum's bridge, just beyond Shoal's station, and it is a remarkable tact that the bridge sustained this tremendous collision, and the subsequent weight of engines and cars piled three and four deep, without deflecting an inch from a straight line, and without injury in aiiy part. The Virginia Iron Mills, at Wheeling. Va., were sold the other dav to A. Wilson Kelly, one of the former proprietors, for $62,000. Ihe purchase in cludes some sixtv or seventy houses, some ot them of brick. This mill, with the other buildings con nected therewith, cost $112,000. The British Government has completed a eon tract with the Messrs. Cunard to establish a bi monthly line of steamers between the Bahama Islands and New York, with superior accommoda tion for passengers, and also to convey the mails to and from England. Nassau, N. P., is to be the prin cipal port. Charles H. Van Wyek, the Republican nominee for Congress in Grange and Sullivan counties, N. Y., met with an accident on Thursday. He was thrown from liis horse and seriously, it not latally, injured. v The Moravian congregation at Bethlehem, Penn sylvania, have over a million of dellars at interest
