BALTIMORE, October 10, 1858. There was a fair degree of activity in the Stock market to-day, and much firmness was evinced in all the leading securities except Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, which fell % <Ti>% per share. Of this stock the sales comprise 525 shares at SSB% 6# $58% regular way, $58%@558% buyer 60 days, and $58% siller 60 after 30 days. It left off at $58% bid, $58% asked cash. Northern Central is firm and without any special change, 250 shares selling at s2l both regular way and buyer 15 days, closing at $20% bid, s2l asked cash. Bank shares were without any movement, but they are hold very firmly.— We note sales of 300 shares Springfield Mining Company at $2% regular way and buyer 00 days, and 100 shares Pat&psco city at $2% seller 60 days. There was a good inquiry for Baltimore city G's, which are strong and show an advance ol %, SIO,OOO IspO's bring f>B%@99, and $l,lOO 1886's 98%. Railroad bonds continue firm. The only transaction to-day was SII,OOO Northwestern \ ir ginia Ist mortgage at 92, same as yesterday's rate. The total business of the day amounted to about $60,000. The following is a comparative statement of the Imports of Foreign Dry Goods at New York for the week, and since Jan. 1 : For the Week. 1856 1857. 1868.

I Buy. Sell. 40 acres 90 SI.OO 120 acres 70 75 80 acres SO 85 j 160 acres 80 85 In relation to American Stocks the Circular of Mr. Satterthwaite by the Africa says: Although no reduction has been made in the rate of dis count at the Bank of England, money remains very easy at full # per cent below the Bank minimum. The proba bility that the Bank will reduce the rate next week has encouraged a speculative feeling on the Stock Exchange, and nearly all ''lasses of Securities have advanced. Consols close 98 # ; # for money and account. Since our last, there has been a steadily improving mar ket for American securities. In State Stocks, the chief inquiry has be n for Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Massa chusetts. I'or Railroad Bonds there has hem a good de mind, especially for those bet known and usually quoted. We note several transactions in Detroit and Milwaukic First Mortgage Bonds, at 64 n 65, since the opening of the road throughout, and the satisfactory character of the traffic returns. Illinois bonds and shares are in good de mand at an advance of about 2 per cent, on last week's prices. The Now York Evening Post of Saturday says: The dealings in stocks to-day were only to a moderate : extent, but the same distinction is seen between the busi ness in reliable securities and those of a doubtful charac ter. The former in a dull market either advance or are sustained at previous prices, while the latter shift at the will of the Bear or Bull. The most important rise to-day is in Illinois Central shares, which closed at 8:j per cent., an advance of 4 per cent, on the prices current previous to the arrival of the Africa's European mail. The advance in Missouri sixes is #. Louisiana sixes If. Railway shares, with the exception of Panama, New York Central and Rock Island, were heavy and lower.— Erie fell #, Galena #. Harlem #. A sale of the new Federal Fives was made at 104#, ex. interest. The movement in stocks this week has been character ized by ranch firmness, with a decided disposition to pur chase in anticipation of a rise. The volume of transac tions has been large, resembling very closely in this respect the active speculation of last spring, but diffwing very materially in point of substantial support. Then the public, in a body, stood aloof from the more reliable railway shares and bonds; now the actual purchasers of | these are to a considerable amount. As to the class of ; stocks which are known to be selling at much above their real value, we notice the same aversion on the part of out siders; in fact, the rapidity with which these rise with the genera! buoyant tone of the market, is effected only through the efforts of the several organized cliques. The most prominent of this class is Michigan Southern guar anticd, which is 4% pr cent, higher than on Saturday lan. 1 he actual investments of the public are distinctly, seen in the gradual improvement of the stocks and a few first class railway bond*. The rise in the former is greatest on | Missouri sixes, California sevens (new issue) and Tennes see sixes. The mortgages of the Hudson River and Har lem roads have alvo advanced, especially the latter. The securities of the Illinois Central road have been freely | taken by investors. The week closes upon a duller money market, and the offerings on cull are as free as in midsummer. The re sources at the command of the largeTinoneyed establish ment are very large, and discounts are made on more fa j vorable terms. The wants of the mercantile community ! have been sensibly diminished. The Arago, from this j port, takes $426,819 in specie. The Exchange market closed firin. SALES AT THE BALTIMORE STOCK BOARD.

WEEK ENDING Or. 15.—Business in the Boot and Shoe trade h <s varied very little sin**- our report of last week. Orders to a moderate amount, have been received from the South and West and are still coining in for desirable styles of heavy good•<, hut other descriptions arc not much sought after. Desirable goods are still sold up very close, but orders for them arc filled at short notice, while of other kinds of goods the stocks are accumulating and prices arc not quite so firm .as previously noticed. With the New England trade a very fair business has been doing. Manufacturers are disposed to move quite cautiously in preparing for Spring sales, anil except a few who have ' orders to fill for fall work, there is very little activity among them. This is very good policy for them. The manufacturing business has not been generally remuner ative for a long time; and if goods to any considerable ex tent are manufactured at the present high cost of stock, and held for Spring operations, it now looks doubtful if the cost would he realized. Leather has eased off a little and is dull, but the bulk of the Hides in all the principal markets, as previously noticed, continue to be taken at comparatively high prices. This looks as if tanners an ticipated no material change in the price of stock, and it is well, therefore, for manufacturers to move on moderate ly. If a moderate amount of goods are manufactured for the Spring trade, prices are quite likely to come up to a paying rate, and a healthy business will 110 doubt be the consequence. For the California market there continues to be a fair Inquiry, and some manufacturers are filling orders for that market. Among the exports of the week we notice I 1.581 cases from this port to San Francisco by the Win field Scott, anil from New York there have been shipments of 475 cases. The quantity cleared at the Custom House has been as follows: 1858. 1857.

The stock of some kinds is. how ever, accumulating and the tendency -f prices is down ward. Standard heavy Sheetings are generally held at 8# nß# cents, but the sales have been quite limited at these prices. Medium Goods have been in fair demand at 7 /7# cents; and light goods *at 5# @s# cents. The stock of Bleached Sheetings and Skirtings is quite light and prices are well maintained, with a good demand from the trade. Drills are very dull and stock accumulating. Browns arc held at S# cents but for export purchases could rjo doubt be made for less.— Bleached are quiet at 8# cents, and Blues 10# oi 10# cts. Print cloths are firm and in better demand with sales at full prices. 60x64 are generally held at 5# cents, and firm. Prints have continue lin very fair demand and de sirable st\ les are sold up close. The sales have been prin cipally from 9'ri 10# cents. For demins. Stripes, Ticks, Cotton Flannels and Osnaburgs prices remain without ma I terial change with a moderate demand. Ginghams con tinue in fair request at 9#ia 1.0 cents.

CHARLESTON, Oct., 17.—The deaths by fever for the week ending yesterday were 40. The Cincinnati Gazette says : Another exceedingly dangerous counterfeit on the State Hank of Ohio has been discovered, which lias undoubtedly had an extensive circulation.— Last week a twenty dollar bill on the Ripley branch, was suspected by a teller of one of the banks in Third street, hut after a close compari son, and a strict scrutiny by the most reliable judges, there was a difference of opinion as to its character. The majority, however, decided that it was genuine. In order to test the matter fully, Messrs Johnston & Bro. forwarded the bill to the cashier of the Ripley branch, and to-day an answer was received, pronouncing it a counterfeit, no notes of the date and number of the counterfeit having been issued by the bank. Engravers are of the opinion that the impres sion must have been taken, in part at least, from genuine engravings, so perfect is the imitation.— There is no mark by which the counterfeit can be distinguished from the genuine, and as the former have undoubtedly been changed in the filling up so as to represent the several bl anches, the only safe plan is to refuse all notes on the denomination of S2O on the State Bank of Ohio. The counterfeit is not a new one, and some of our bankers are of the opinion that the spurious notes have been received 'and paid out by the bankers themselves, for some time, and that'a large portion of the s2o's now in circulation are counterfeit. FROM THE PLAINS. — A correspondent of the St. Louis hepvUiean, writing from Fort Leavenworth, Oct. 4, says: "Yesterday, the Engineer Company which rvent out with Col. Andrew's command earlvlast Spring, arrived from Fort Bridger. It is under command of Lieuts. Duane and Alexander of the Engineer corps. The command is in excellent health. It will he recollected that Col. Andrew's command marched to Utah by the way of Bridger's Pass, in order to ascertain if a practicable road could be found through that part of the Rocky Mountains. The report of every officer goes to show that al though it is some 80 to 100 miles shorter through Bridger's Pass, still there are obstacles which will prevent the use ot that route bv large commands, and by large trains. Grass is very scarce, and the water is very bad, being so strongly impregnated with different salts as to render it'dangerous for animals to drink it, particularly during"a dry sea son. It appears to be now weH'established that the road through the South Pass must continue to be the great thoroughfare to Utah qnd the Pacific. This morning, there was a large arrival from New Mexico. Gen. Garland, accompanied by Major Nicholas, Assistant Adjutant-General; Capt. East man, Assistant Quarter-Master, and Dr. Lether man, reached here in twenty-two days from Santa Fe. The General is in bad health, but the other officers are looking well." BALTIMORE, MONDAY, OCTOBER 18, 18-58. CIT Y INTEL/. Ki EXAMINATION BEFORE THE UNITED STATES COMMIS SIONER. —Wilkinson.

ACCIDENTS. — A small bov about five years of age, a son of Mr. John Sands, residing on Scnroeder near Carey street, was run over by a cart, on Sat urday afternoon last, at the intersection of Lombard and Carey streets. He was playing in theultcct at the time, and as the cart caiuc "along he attempted to rnn before the horse when he stumbled and fell, ' and the driver was unable to stop until one of the wheels had passed over his right leg, tearing the flesh from his leg and horribly smashing it; heAvas . also bruised about the body from the tall. IfT- was taken to his father's residence and Dr. Marshall sent for, who rendered professional assistance. At an early hour on Saturday morning, a son of Mr. E. Daley, aged six years, residing at No. 604 Lexington street, met with a painful/accident while playing in his father's yard. He waZclinching upon a fence in the rear of the dwelling and while sitting upon the top of it, by some means lost his balance and fell to the ground, breaking his right arm and otherwise ivjuring himself. He was taken into the house and attended by Dr. Hintze, who set the limb. THE RACES. —On Saturday last there was a race of mile heats, three best in'five, for a purse of $290 over the Central Course, the entries being— F. M. Hall's grey filly, by Childe Harold. George Kenny's eh. horse, Henry Peacham. Calvin Green's ch. horse, Ganzalese. It was a well contested race resulting in favor of the first named horse in three straight heats. To-day a race of unusual interest will come off, it being a handicap for a purse of SSOO, three mile heats. Some of the best horses on the ground have been named for this race. There will also be a sin gle dash of a mile for a purse of S3O0 —post entries, flie character of tlio horses 'entered and the order which has been maintained, throughout this meet ing, should ensure a large attendance for these races. Loss OE A Met, 13AO.—As one of the Tate A Co.'s stages was coming into the city about o'clock on Saturday evening, from Emmittsbnrg, after leaving the toll gate, which is near the city limits, the driver by some means lost a mail bag from the the top of tne coach, containing the Emmittsbnrg mail. He states that upon leaving the toll gate the bag was on the coach, but on his arrival at the Post-oflice it was nowhere to be found. The eoaclics start from the Franklin Hotel, corner of Franklin and Howard streets. COMMITTED TO THE ALMS HOUSE.— A white woman about thirty live years of age was brought into the Western Station house a few days since, in an ap parently demented state. She had in her posses sion a Brittania Tea pot, marked A. G. 11. Upon being questioned she stated that she got it some where, but could not tell the place. The Tea pot was left at the Station house to await the indentifi cation of the rightful owner, and the woman was committed to the Alms House.

BUSINESS IN NEW ENGLAND. —From our corres pondents in various parts of New England, we learn that business the present fall, though not by any means equal to that of former seasons, is more ac tive than was anticipated. Our Lowell corres pondent alludes not only to a slight revival of busi ness in that city, but also an advance of wages to the operatives in some cases to the standard of last year. Our correspondent at Clinton, Worcester county, says : "The mills are all in pretty general operation. Business is good, and the people are happy, or ought to be." The emigration to the West this year from New England has not been very large, but in many cases (especially of young men who went there expecting to obtain situations) anticipations have not been realized, and some have been obliged to return to this State poorer in purse than when they started.— Boston Traveller. Our fellow townsman, C. E. Evard, has had a wine press made for the manufacture of wine from our native grapes. He has made about sixty gal lons of a delightful flavor, and a rich beautiful color.— Leesburg ( V*b.) Dispatch. The centennial anniversary of the evacuation of Fort Duquesne is to be celebrated in Pittsburg on the 25th prox. NEWS FROM THE SMITH IMriFIC. The steamship New Granada reached Panama on the 21st uf September, with the Smith l'neilie mails, j passengers, §418,940 in treasure, and one hundred i and twenty-five bales of merchandise on freight. I Among her passengers were John Wheelwright, | Esq., of Valparaiso, and ('apt. Palkinghorn, of her j Britannic Majesty's steam sloop tender Ooekatric , en route for England. 11. I!. M.'s sloop-of-war Cockatrice has been con demned at Callao, and sold for £1.140. She was bought by Mr. Itobinett, and is intended to take passengers to Frazer river. The ollicers and ereiv of the Cockatrice were transferred to the frigate Ganges, and the latter vessel had sailed for Vancouver's Island. The dates are Valparaiso September 1, and Callao to September 12. The news from the different repnblics is uninter esting in its character. CALLAO, Sept. 12. 1858. Since closing my letter the English mail steamer Bolivia, arriving from Valparaiso, brings news of a most important character. Echinique, who lias been an exile in Chile, and is properly the Presi dent, ilejiirc, of Peru, since the period for which he was elected, near six years ago, has not vet expired, has collected a company of partizans at Valparaiso, also arms and munition's of war, and at the time of the Bolivia's sailing lie was preparing to embark on board a schooner, with his followers, with des tination for Ariea, a port on the coast of Southern Peru, where a large number of persons were anx iously awaiting his arrival in order to join hiscause. The correspondence of Echinique lias been inter cepted, from which his intentions of returning were discovered, (ten. Costilla is in suspense in reler- j ence to the approaching storm, having requested an interview with Capt. Johnson, who commands the Bolivia, in order to ascertain ail that was possible in reference to Echinique's movements. Hence, the prospective peace upon which the Commerrin con- , gratulated itself last week, cannot yet be reckoned among certainties.— Cor. N. Y. Herald. CHILE. Congress closed its session on the 31st August.— : One ol their last and most important acts was that of a bill authorizing the executive to purchase Jhe • Valparaiso and Santiago Railway shares. r "kc* '!! reads as follows: * The President of Die republic is authorized, dur ing the space of six months, to buy up the shares of the Valparaiso Railway, in so far as the share- ! holders sliaji be willing to'sell. In thus purchasing the shares, the jyate becomes invested with the rights and prerogatives of the shareholders, whose slmres it purchases, in aoriirdance with this law. This being sanctioned, the others are merely formal, and the project once approved will be immediately ratified bythc Senate. Prior to the closing of Congress the Government : fpresented the reports of the Departments of Justice, ; Worship and Public Instruction. According to the calculations therein made, there are in the republic one lwmdred and thirty-seven parishes, and for their support by the State, it teems that the sitw of §500,000 would be re quired. During the year the snfi of 501,580 has been ex- j pended in repairing and bpilding churches. The nation's expense whorship during the year'amountiyl to §232.023.

' The support of Shese schools cost the annual sum of §143.206. The different classes offthe university are attended i by 353 student?. * The teacheus' school has ninety-four pupils, and j the of arts and tijdes ninety-six. Government pas just-endowed another female schnrtUn C'olina, and librarv in Meli piHa; * The railway branch rff Copiapo, from Pabellon to j Chanarcillo, isjiearly finished —twelve miles of the line which is to junite fffte most important mining centrefbeingjready. Speaking of the railway, a newspaper correspondent savs: On the 20th of* July Mr. Taggert, engineer on ; the Cojjiapo Railway, made an experimental trip on j the new road w.hich was quite satisfactory and very interesting. The engine, with a-?; pressure of 100 pounds, ,dotibled Willi ease curves of 000 feet radius and as- ; the phuies of tMnt line—which hav - an in clination of ITU to '221 Jeet ptf mile—until it at taineckthe terminus, at an elafation of 4.075 feet abovejhe level* of thejpcS, is about 1.000 feet higher titan ai\y otherenpffne Iras ascended as yet. ) The Viiinmit of in the Alps of j Austria, traversed hy thy Vmrfna and Trieste Rail way, issupprtgfd to b.' t\rfi point ever cross ed by 41 locomotive. This summit is about 11,000 feet above the level of the sea. pass of the Blue Ridge*, in Virginia, traversojVm/the Raltimorc and , Ohio Railway, is supposed to rarfik next, and has an elevation of *2,700 point in tjie railway. Copiapo branch, at about two miles from the present terminus, lias an elevation feet above the level of the sea, and before the celebration of the next anniversary of the independence of Chile, the steam engine will have crossed that height, and the locomotive's shrill whistle will awaken the echoes amidst the Ataeama mountains, at an elevation of 1,400 to 1.500 feet higher than in any other part of the world. This fact is worthy of being mentioned in the his tory of railway progress, and leads the speculative mind to believe is not very far dis tant when the locWTP> will find a path across I the? Andes, and open new channels of commerce • and wealth to the nations on both sides. The organization of a body of pilots in the port of Ancud has been declared, and that of Valparaiso has been regulated. The news lately received from the provinces is rather satisfactory than otherwise. In the agricultural district* in the South appear ances are very promising, and it seems that the i crops will be plentiful, notwithstanding the exces sive rain which has fallen. In Conception, the Municipal body has contracted for the lighting of the town by gas. In the German colony of Lianquihue the crops and all things in general present flattering appear ances. and the foundation of the colony was cele brated by a ball on its last anniversary. An extensive coal mine has just been discovered fifteen miles inland from the port of Ancud, in the province of Chiloe; the owners intend constructing a small railway from the port to the mine, in order i to surmount the difficulties presented by the dis- ; tance, and for facilitating exportation. The mines in the north continue more or less fa vorable to the miners. An American naturalized citizen, bv name Wil liam Thomson, a Prussian by birth, had been im- , prisoned in Valparaiso for contempt of court, and liad only been released on making a suitable apology. He tries to make it appear that he was persecuted on account of his Americanism, but neither the American Minister nor Consul took any notice of his case. PERU. From Peru we have nothing of importance. An Arica correspondent writes that trade is very depressed there on account of the unsettled state of Rolivia, and that the Tacnamerchants are refusing to sell on credit. General Castilla continued to govern the coun try as President, and general tranquility existed. In Lima everything is quiet, and trade dull. The new mole at Pisco is progressing very sati-- I factorilv. Already ISO feet have been completed. It is to be 2,200 feet in length, and built on iron screw piles imported from England. It will, when finished, be the largest and probably the finest work of the kind on the Pacific coast. There were forty-one vessels loading at the Chincha Islands, and forty-two lying in the harbor of Callao. MARKETS. VALPARAISO, Sept. I.—The extraordinary degree noted in our former review died away towards the commencement of this last fortnight, or at least has i not been so marked. In articles of import, although transactions were numerous, they were almost en tirely confined to retail, and as regards the stock on hand, we find it rather incomplete in stuffs, and nothing worthy of mention to note. In exports,! prices have been pretty well kept up, except a few j in which the fall has been scarcely felt. The mone tary market continues extricating itself from the many difficulties in which it was entangled, so much so, that while we write payments are far easier and the interest of money has fallen. ADDITIONAL FROM CALIFORNIA BY THE STAR OP THE M FST. §1,400,000 IX SPECIE. NEW YORK, Oct. 15.—Steamship Star of the West, from Aspinwall sth, Kingston, .la., Bth, ar rived this morning. She brings upwards of 51,400,- 000 in treasure. The principal consignees are Wells, Fargo A Co., §324,000; American Exchange \ Bank, §110,000; Scholle Bros., §102,000: Freeman A Co., §64.000; Troadwoll A Co.. §15.000; T. 11. Bacon, §10.000; A. Hardy, §3,000: Tilton A McFar land, §2,000. The San Francisco market was unusually active < ! during the fortnight. There were large speculative sales of goods on the spot and to arrive, at various prices, but chiefly improved, especially meat, pro- 1 visions, lard, sugar, candles, rice, boots and shoes, ; hardware and liquors. Money is abundant and cheap. Chinese merchants were operating in Sugars, Rice, Teas, etc., at improved prices. Boots and Shoes were in better demand, at improved rates, j Large transactions in Candles, at improved prices, including lots to arrive. Coal was firmer. Coffee advanced, and tending further upward. Nails ac tive at advanced rates. Molasses and Svrnp tirm. Lumber in demand at better prices. Lard and j Buttei scarce, with a marked improvement. The' transactions in Provisions to arrive bad been made j at good prices. Sugars of all descriptions have an upward tendency. Large sales of Dry Goods and Clothing at auction at fair prices. Flour active: Haxall inspected $13.50. American Liquors active at better prices. The California dates by the Star of the West are of the 21st ult. The r. S. sloop-of-war Saratoga was at Aspinwall, all well. The sloop-of-war St. Marys was at Acapulco, j bound for Panama. Steamer Golden Gate, from Panama, with the Atlantic mails of Sept. 5, was passed evening of 25th, four days' sail from San Francisco. The California news is generally uninteresting. Advices of the success of the laying of the Atlantic \ Cable had occasioned groat rejoicing, and Monday, 27th, had been selected for a grand celebration in honor of the event. The government stables at Benieia barracks were burnt on the 13th ult., together with horses, mules, carriages, provender, etc. ; Barnabas Kelly of Kennebec. Me., was blown by a high wind from a steep precipice in Sierra county and killed. The lump of gold recently found in Columbia by Mr. Strain, had been melted and run into a bar weighing upwards of 400 ounces, and sold for nearly §7,500. James Jennessey, owe of the Vigilant Committee exiles, recently brought a suit at Downieville against the Committee, for damages, but it being found impossible to empanel a jury who were not prejudiced in favor of the Committee, the suit was abandoned. The Bth anniversary of the admission of Califor nia into the Union was celebrated at San Jrancisco on the 9th ult. , . ! Geo. F. Ward well, clerk for A. B. McCreadv A Co., San Francisco, had been detected in serious forgeries upon his employers. I There was a smart shock of eaathquake at San Francisco, the evening of the 12th. There were no new Indian dillieulties. Steamer Sea Bird, belonging to San Francisco, 1 was burned on the passage from \ ictoria to 1' ort Langley. No lives lost. The boat and cargo a to- j tal loss" Cargo was valued at $50,000. Valparaiso dates are to Aug. 31. The Chilean Congress closed its session on that day. A locomotive on the Copiapo Railroad had at tained the height of 4,075 feet from the level ot the 1 sea, 1,000 feet higher than any other engine had ascended as yet. It was reported at Valparaiso that (Jen. Echegna I hail started on another revolutionary expedition to I I'eru. It was said his friends liad purchased the cargo of ammunition on board the brig Tniviisend Jones, anil that she was about to sail for l'eru to land it. Callao dates are to Sept. 13. There is no news of importance. 41 vessels were loading at the C'ltineha Islands, and 42 lying at Callao. The U. S. frigate Merriinac had gone to Valpa raiso. The Decatur was at Callao. In the Valparaiso market, transactions in imports were mainly confined to retail. In exports prices were well sustained. The money market was much easier. ISTHMUS. The U. S. frigate Roanoke touched at Aspinwall 20th of September, and sailed for San Juan. Busi ness was very dull at Greytown. It was reported that Gen. Lamar had demanded $5,000,000 from Costa Rica as a recompense for the shooting of some Americans at Virgin Bay and the taking of the place. Doubtful. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. RUSSIA. The great Russian Steam Navigation Company took possession on the 20 ult. of the establishment at Villafranca, granted to them by the Sardinian government. The steamship invincible, on her passage from Cronstadt for Hull, xvitli a full eago, had been en tirely lost. The passengers and crew were saved. ' The I'rinoe of Prussia arrived at Warsaw on the 24 th ult. and was cordially received by the Empe ror Alexandria. On the following day the Emperor and the I't inee reviewed the troops at the eatnp of Povronski. The troops formed an effective force of 30,000 men, with sixty-four pieces of artillery. At each defile the Prince of Prussia put himself at the head of his regiment—the Kaloaga infantry. TURKEY. Lord Stratford de Redcliffe was to have been re ceived hv the Sultan on the 25th ult. Letters from Candia describe the island as still in a very disturbed state. The new Governor had not been able to carry out the instructions received from Constantinople. Armed Turks had traversed the capital of the island shouting "Death to the Chris tians!" Some of them were arrested, hut were im mediately released, so great is the Mussulman inllu ence. A despatch from Alexandria says:—"The Nneife.ro publishes a report of a revolt at Jiddali, and a ris ing at Mecca, wherein several Turkish soldiers have been killed." Advices from Tripoli state that the revolt of a battalion of soldiers had been suppressed. PERSIA. The chief Minister of Persia and his two sons had been arrested and were under surveillance. EGYPT. Advices from Suez state that the steamer Hymen had been met on the coast of Abyssinia with pil grims on board, in a state of mutiny against the Christians. The latter would doubtless have all been murdered, hut for the timely interposition of an English steamer, which took the Hymen and all ort hoard into Suez. INDIA AND CHINA. The India and China mails, already telegraphed, were expected to reach England the dav the Afri ca sailed. Commercial despatches by them show that there had been a further decline of about two per cent, in the rate of exchange at Hong Kong and Slianghae, thus diminishing all prospect of silver being sent from Europe. The British Consul and all foreigners had left Canton. Lord Elgin and Admiral Seymour had departed for Japan, and the French for Cochin-China. In the Indian exchanges there had been no mate rial variation, but the Bank of Bengal had made another reduction of one per cent, in their rate of discount, making the charge seven per cent. A serious Hood had occurred in the Upper Indus, hv which nearly the whole of the cantonments at Nossher were swept away. OUR INTERESTS IN MEXICO—DESPATCHES FROM MINISTER FORSYTH. Lt. R. Ap Catesby Jones, who brings important despatches from our Minister in Mexico, arrived in the city this morning. Mr. Forsyth states that the report of a recent battle between Vidaurri and Miratnon rested upon a very slender basis. A skirmish may have taken place outside of the walls of San Luis I'otosi, but nothing more. Still less was there any probability that Miratnon had committed suicide. The reports of the tyrannical behavior of the Liberal party towards foreigners is confirmed.— Americans and English had been thrown into pris on by Garza for not contributing to the forced loan of SIOO,OOO. A lew hours before Lieut. Jones left Tampico, an American had been cast into prison, j and his goods, which were on their way to the inte rior, confiscated. When Mr. Forsyth wrote, both parties seem to be ] inactive. Many of the principal Liberals entirely disapproved of the eocrse of Garza, in levying the forced loan. All the sea-ports are in possession of tlie Liberals, and they have to adopt the same course which our Government condemned in the Conser vatives. At Mr. Forsyth's request, the sloop-of war Plymouth has gone up to Tampico to protect i our interests. Gen. Rohles was on hoard a Spanish vcssel-of war off Vera Gruz, and was not allowed any com munication with the land. The officers of the ves sel had been detected in giving assistance to the Conservatives. Lieut. Jones also brings a letter from our consul at San Luis i'otosi, who describes the state of the country as miserable in the extreme. An impres sion seemed to prevail that a large Spanish fleet would soon he on the coast to demand redress. Mr. Forsyth says that he will sail from Vera Cruz for the United States on the 18th inst. — States. A German mass meeting calledhv a committee of the Arbiter Bund and of the Social Republic to in augurate a new party was held in New York on Wednesday evening. From 1500 to 2000 persons were present. The following report of speeches and resolutions is taken from the He rah I: After the reading of letters of excuse from Dr. I'lhster and citizen August Widich, the President introduced Victor I'elz, who addressed the meeting in the following words: Whenever something great and durable has been achieved it was always the mass of the people who worked it out; but whatever has been conceived or done by the upper classes of society seldom or nev er extended its influence to the lower orders of the people. The people alone by their honesty are able to oppose an efficacious check to the corruption of the politicians and their partisans. These latter do not shrink before the most ignoble means for the purpose of securing to themselves the spoils which they know how to procure from the pockets of the deluded people. Therefore, let us unite all our for ces to oppose this encroaching corruption of the political parties, who have lost all sense of righteous ness and honesty. Let us form a new party, com posed of the independent and honest men among our German brothers—a party of true freedom, enemy to all kinds of impostors—may they call themselves politicians or priests, (Cheers and ap plause.) The next speaker introduced was Gustav Struve, who after an enthusiastic and eloquent allocution, read the following resolutions : 1. The meeting declare all and every party— democrats, nativists and republicans—as corrupt. 2. The latter lose all right to support on the part of the friends of freedom on account of their open efforts to impair the political rights of the immi grated citizens. 3. We do not see any other means of averting political ruin from the naturalized citizens, and of maintaining the principles of the Declaration of In dependence of 1776, save by forming a new party of freedom and equality of rights which keep aloof from the corruption of the existing parties. Therefore, we insist on the following demands : I 1. We demand full equality of rights for the j working people; he who makes his capital work for | himself is no longer to hold the reins of government. I We are to break the chains by which monopoly ! enslaved labor. We are the enemies of all kinds of servitude, and above all things of slavery, the worst of all monopolies. 2. We demand that the rights granted to the im- | migrated portion of the inhabitants of the Union be [ unimpaired, and that the legal term of naturaliza- | tion he shortened instead of being prolonged. 3. We demand a law in favor of the emigrants during their stay on board of ships, and their pro- ; tectioa against arbitrary treatment on the part of j shipowners and captains. 4. We demand a school organization really in I harmony with the wants of the people, the creation i of polyteehnical and agricultural instructions and ; of establishments of credit well organized and aeces- i sible to the poorer classes. 5. We demand that the wants of the laboring classes in the cities and in the country be taken i care of, that the Congress land he no longer deliv- j ered up into the hands of land speculators and I usurers, hut accorded, without any expense, to real colonists; that in the cities dwelling houses for the j working people be erected and leased out at the j mere rate of the interest for the capital laid out. 6. We demand that the religious liberty which is i secured to the people become a truth; that the i church no longer enforce any arbitrary law as to the sabbath celebration, or exercise any legitimate influence over the State. 7. We demand a thorough reform of the adminis- j tration ofjustice, the dismissal and punishment of faithless functionaries, of corruptible judges and j greedy members of Legislative Assemblies. 8. We demand that the tribunals he accessible to the poorest and most inexperienced of the people. 9. We demand that every member of Legislative Assembly, when retiring from it, be held to give an account to his constituents. 10. We demand from the exterior policy of the United States that every citizen, both native and naturalized, be protected abroad from arbitrary treatment, and that foreign nations have the cer tainty of finding in their struggle against despotism a sure support and aid in the United States. 11. Lastly, we demand that the rights stolen from tfie people by office holders, priests and impostors j of anv kind, be restored to them, and that the sov ereignty of the people become a truth. These demands were received by the assembly j with repeated and loud acclamations.

After Dr. Korseh, Mr. Case addressed the as-! setnblv in English, and the meeting•Wien adjourned. Mile. Piccolomini's career on the stage dates hack only about five or six years, nearly three of which I have been spent in London, where she is truly called the pet of the public. She has not yet completed her twenty-second year, and is a handsome bru nette, with a petite, plump and symetrical figure. ' The fascination of her manner upon the stage is the i great secret of the enthusiasm with which she in- i fects the audience, in Italy her ardor and imput- I siveness astonished an audience which is proverbial i for the decided way in which it condemns what is bad and rewards what is good. In England, Ire- ' land and Scotland Mile. Piccolomini has always walked upon flowers, and now, like a feminine Al exander, she comes to conquer the new World. On board the North Star Mile. Piccolomini sane at a concert, the receipts of which were given to the sailors and firemen, who, when she left the ship, manned tlio yards and bid her adieu with three rousing cheers.

I THE SOLAR ECLIPSE IN PERU. ' SUCCESS OF LIEUT. OlUMs' OBSERVING EXPEDITION. | Froml At Pamma Star, Octoi r I Wo are gratified to inform our readers that when ' the Pacific Steam Navigation Company's steamer : New Granada passed Payta on the loth' u!t., Lieut. James M. Gillis, U. S. N., member of the Smithso • I nian Institution, was there, having satisfactorily completed his observations of the total eeliose of the sun on the 7th ult.

As the j object of his visit to the coast was solely for the pur- I pose of making these observations, we trust the ' public wilt he favored with a minute report of the ! result, which we are confident will, from the pen of that intelligent and seientilic gentleman, be exceed ingly interesting and instructive. It was the intention of Lieut. Gillis to proceed by | the first steamer south to Lima, where he will re- I main a short time, and perhaps continue his voyage j to Chile. j Although astronomers were expected to arrive from France and England, it seems that no other 1 was present on this interesting occasion, except Mr. Maester, a German astronomer from Santiago, sent j to join Lieut. Gillis by the Government of Chile.
