BOARD OF TRADE. Committee of Arbitration for >h'. month of October. JNO. J. BOYD, "J L" SHRIV F-R. I OLIVER A. rAUKEU, L. B. CALWELL, | OLIVER C. ZF.1.1,. _ Sftmetof anb Commercial Heoicto. BALTIMORE, October 23, 1858. The dullest day that has been observed in the Stock market for a long period occurred to-day, the transactions at the Board being less $2,500. There were no sales of Baltimore and Ohio Railroad shares, and the closing rates, which were SSO bid, 56% asked, regular way, indicate little or no change since yesterday. The only sale of Northern Cen tral was 0 shares at $21%, cash, but at the close $21% was offered, $21% asked regular way, % higher than the previous day. After the adjourn ment of the Board we learn that sales were made of 200 shares at 521% cash, thus sustaining the ad vance. IVe also note a sale after the Board of 10 shares Cuba Mining and Smelting Company at ssl. Bank stocks are still very firm with a tendency up ward. The sales to-day include 24 shares Farmers' and Merchants' at 540% and 30 shares Bank of Com merce at $25. In Bonds and Loans there was nothing whatever done. They are held firmly,with an advance of % per cent, in the offering rate for Northern Central 1885's. In other descriptions we have no change to note. Ti?Fiv York Evening Post of Saturday says: The dealings in stocks to-day were at still better pri ces. The improvement is greatest in New York Central, Hudson River, Reading, and Pennsylvania coal. The rise is also considerable on Missouri 6's and the bonds of the Michigan Central. Harlem, and Chicago and Rock Island roads. The closing sales of New York Central were at 85#. The weakest on the list was Galena and Chicago, which was offered at 82#. The cause of this is the resignation of Mr. Turner, the President, who probably lias construed the refusal of the stockholders to give their assent to the building of a bridge across the Mississippi river as a cen sure upon his management. The market generally was firm, with the usual demands for State stocks. Missouri sixes brought 89# at the close. California sevens 92. The rise in the latter is 6 per cent, within the past fortnight. Ohio sixes, long loan, brought 109. Michigan Southern guaranteed is % percent, lower than yesterday. For Illinois Central shares S4,l£ was bid at tlie close. During the week there has been considerable fluctuation in railway shares, while on the whole an improvement over last Saturday's prices has been established. The mo netary reactions are not seen in the first clasi railway bonds. State stocks and bank shares, these having from day to day advanced. The rise in Missouri fl's is 2j£ per cent., Louisiana 1, Tennessee 2V, Virginia 6's l? 4', Cali fornia sevens 4 per cent. The absorption by the public t together with fresh demands for Western banking pur poses, is the chief cause of the rise. The reliable coal stocks, such as Delaware, and Hudson, and Pennsyl vania, are also higher, particularly the latter, the quota tions last Saturday being 70 against SO, the present price.

BOSTON" BOOT AND SHOE MARKET, FOR THE WEEK ENDING OCTOBER 22.—We notice no material change in the Boot and Shoe trade since our last week's report A few orders have come in from the South and West, and we notice some New York ami Philadelphia buyers here a second time, but the business of the week has 'been quite moderate. Heavy goods are most sought after and have thus far sold about as fast as received. Houses engaged in the New England trade continue to be pretty actively employed, and the business this year has been better than last year. Manufacturers are fast winding up their season's work, and are inclined to close it out at a small decline in price rather than keep it over, notwithstanding that for two or three months past prices have not been remunerative.— There has been a further slight decline in the price of Leather, but Hides have been quite active at previous prices. Leather is still considered altogether too high for manufacturing, though many of the principal dealers ex press confidence in maintaining it where it is, and some predict an advance. We look for a quiet state of things a nong the manufacturers for some time. For California there continues to he a fair demand for heavy work suited to the wants c.f that market. Among the exports of the week we notice 115 cases by the Polyne sia to that market, and 1,741 cases by the Eliza and Ella. From New York there have been shipments of 31 cases. The quantity cleared at the Custom House has been ai follows: 1858. 1857. For the week, cases 3.701 4.203 Jan nary 1 1 80,458 208,332 Total 184,15? 212.532 Showing a falling off of 28,476 cases compared with last BOSTON COTTON GOODS MARKET, FOR TIIF. WEEK ENDING OCTOBER 22.—The past it as been a very quiet week in the Cotton Goods trade, the sales for both export and consumption having been quite unimportant. In prices there is no material change, hut for some kinds must he considered nominal, in the absence of transac tions. Brown Sheetings continue quiet, particularly heavy goods. We quote heavy standard Sheetings at B#@B# cts ; medium Sheetings and Shirtings at 6*, 7# cts.; and light goods at s#@s# cts.

TELEGRAMS RECEIVED AT THE OFFICE OF "THE DAILY EXCHANGE." Important TelegrapHic Arrangement. NEW VORK, Oct. 24.—The North American Tele graphic Association, composed of a number of lead ing companies, now owning or working the main telegraph lines from Newfoundland to Now Or leans, and from Quebec to the western border of Missouri, closed a three days' session in this city on Saturday. The Association was organized bv the appointment of Peter Cooper as President, Charles S. Mann, of Utica, as Vice President, and A. Lov ett, Esq., of Now York, as Secretary. A large delegation from several of the Compa nies interested was present, and the practical busi ness-like manner in which the matters for advise ment were disposed of, gives promise that the busi ness of telegraphing has fallen into hands compe tent to systematise and make it all it should be. Among the most important subjects of considera tion, we learn, was the early construction of a reliable line to California and Oregon. A commit tee was appointed to take this matter in hand and adopt prompt and efficient measures for the con struction of the important work. A long desired reform was adopted in the uniform manner ot counting the words constituting a mes sage. Another subject was a better union for the improvement and protecting of telegraphic interests, aiming at increased facilities with an ultimate re duction of tolls. Another feature of the objects of the Association was the connexion of the various lines with the view of enforcing a more prompt correction of errors, and a more strict and satisfactory manner of sending despatches. These and many other kindred subjects tending to systematise this im portant business occupied the iieliberations of the Association, and if carried out in good faith will greatly improve this branch of the public conveni ence ill the communication of its vast wants both of a social and commercial character The deputation is composed of the New York, London and New Foundland Telegraph Company, the American Company, the New York and Buffalo Company, the Western Union, the Atlanta and Ohio, the Illinois, Michigan, lowa and Wisconsin, the New Orleans and Ohio Company, and the Mon treal Company, having an aggreatecapital invested of between five and six millions of dollars, and op erating between thirty and fifty thousand miles of wire. It is also said that arrangements are in progress, if not already consummated, by which the House Printing Telegraph Line between New York and Washington is to be consolidated with the lines of the American Telegraph Company, thus placing the latter company in immediate communication with Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, and re moving the last obstacle in the way of a speedy ex tension ot the Printing Telegraph lines along the seaboard to New Orleans. The central offices in this city for the above named telegraph companies are at No. 21 Wall st., and No. 8 Merchants' Exchange.

In our untraveled innocence, we immagine that the clusters which wo see in our hot-houses and horti cultural exhibitions but imperfectly typify the pon derous development and luxuriant abundance of this fruit in grape growing countries.

Mr. Pinkney remarked to Judge Stump, that he would suggest that in this case no bail be taken at all, as he had no doubt but that the affair would turn out to be a most outrageous murder. Judge Stump replied that the Grand Jury had made a request to him in writing to the same ef fect. The following is a copy of the request from the j Grand Jurv : To the Hon. Judge Stump : i he Grand Jury having made a presentment of Marion Cord and Charles Taylor, for an assault with intent to kill one Adolph Wertzberger, and as it is highly probable that the wounded man will die from his injuria®, it is respectfully requested that no bail be received in this case until the result is known. (Signed,) WM. 11. CATHCART, October 23d, 1858. Foreman. Ihe Court then adjourned until thi- morning at 11 o clock, when after the delivcrv of the opinion of Judge Stump in the Ford case, the trial of John Stephens aha * Cyplus, (negro) charged with the murder id Henry King (negro) will be commenced. UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT.— Hon. William Fell Giles, Judge. William Meade Addison, Esq., U. S. District Attorney, prosecuting. Ihe following business occupied the Court on Saturday : t he Inited States vs. William Wilkinson . George Stein a. m# Rurly, George Fowler, Thomas Hogg and \\ illiam Mchldarv, indicted for assaulting with intent to kill Hernard Bradcv, on Friday, October 15th, ISSB, at the new Post Ollice buildings. Charles L. Kralt and O. F. Hack, Fsqrs., ap peared for the prisoners. Ihe counsel for the traversers on Friday morn ing made a motion to quash the indictment in the above case, for the following reasons : Ist. Because the United States Government has no jurisdiction over the territory or place upon which the offences alleged against the traversers in the said indictment are alleged to have been com mitted; and, therefore, this Court has no power to try or punish crimes or offences committed in said place. 2d. Because the Government of the United States has not the power and the jurisdiction over the place where said offences are alleged to have been committed, but that jurisdiction remains in the Courts of t lie State of Mat-viand. Judge Giles overruled the nltrfion in tlie follow ing decision: Since the adjournment of the Court yesterday, I have given to the very interesting question raised on this mo tion to quash, that patient consideration and examination which was due, as well to its importance as to the very ahle argument of the learned counsel for the traversers He resied that argument upon thetheorv, that by tlie 17th subsection of section Bof article 1 of the Constitution of the tinted States, tiie General Government could not receive from a State any qualified cession of jurisdiction oyer a site purchased for tiie erection of forts, arsen als. kc. I hat sec ion reads thus : "To exercise exclusive legisla tion in all cases whatsoever, over such district (not ex ceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the Government of the Unit d States; and to exercise lucavthority overall places purchased to/ the consent of th Legist at are n f the State in which the some shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dock-yards, atid other needfut buildings. l ' Now it appears to me clear, that the preater power in cludes the less, that, as under this section of the Con stitution, Conpress possessed the power of exclusive Leg islation over all places purchased with the consent of the Legislature of a State where they were situated, they had the power to exercise a concurrent jurisdiction or any lesser jurisdiction. For when you consider the reason which led to the grant of this power in the Constitution the various exigencies and wants of tlie public service wiiicu would require its exercise, it cannot lie for a mo ment supposed that ttie wise men who framed that instru ment ever intended to debar the General Government from the purchase of property, (which they well knew would lie from time to time required for the uses of ttie Govern ment they were establishing) without thev could obtain its cession with exclusive jurisdiction. The Constitution gave CO power to condemn the tmdthat might be required it mu.< be purchased by the consent of the Legislature of the Mate. A sovereign State could not lie coerced into a cessior of jurisdiction over any part of her territory.— And when she granted it, she could attach to the grant and cession what conditions she pleased. The General Government might accept or reject the purchase ami ces sion of jurisdiction on the terms proposed by the State hut if She accepted, she took tin-jurisdiction with the con' ditioiis which the State annexed to the cession Now, if the view of the traversers' Counsel lie correct, that the General Government could take no jurisdiction except an exclusive one. then the cession of jurisdiction in this case would be void: for where in a private grant, an impossible condition is annexed, the grant would stand freed of ttie condition, this would not I apprehend lie the rule in reference to a legislative grant, certainly not to a I.egis lative cession ot jurisdiction by a sovereign State over any part of her territory. Maryland lias made many cessions of parts of her territory to the General Govern ment for light houses, forts, etc. In ail those grants, except that for the Naval Academy at Annapolis, the ces sum of jurisdiction is absolute, without any reser vation whatever In that for the Naval Academy there is a reservation by the State of concurrent jurisdiction so fur as to permit the service of civil and criminal pro cess issued by any Court of the State for anything done out of the limits of the land ceded. In two cases only, so far as. I hav seen, lias Maryland made the reservation (in addition to the service of process.) of a concurrent juris diction by the State to punish crimes committal on the site ceded to the General Government. Tic Legislature did so by the act of 1853, eh. 40, in giving their consent to the piii chase of ground for the enlargement of the Custom House in this city; and in the present case by the act of 185ti, cli. 176—ami the reservations in each case arc alike— hy section 21 of last act, it is enacted, "That jurisdiction over the same parcels of ground, after the same shall have been lawfully conveyed t<> the United'Statesgovernment, be and it is hereby ceded to the United States government, Irs*) vi or/, nevertheless, to the State of Maryl and y concur rentjurisdiction over the said lot or parcel of ground so far as may (,e necessary to authorize the service thereon of process issued by any ("..art or officer of said State, and the punishment by said State of crime thereon cammmitted. 11 Now, if the reservation had been 41 reserving to the State of Maryland the punishment of all crime committed on the parcel of ground so conveyed to the United States there would be an end of this prosecution. Hut the Legislature of Maryland did not so provide. They merely reserved to the Courts of the State, a concur rent jurisdiction to punish crimes; concurrent with the General Government; as to that Government had been committed the general jurisdiction by the previous words of cession, and without this reservation, the General Gov ernment would have possessed the sole jurisdiction for the punishment of crimes. And 1 can perceive no evils likelv to result from this concurrent jnri.-.y t,,v - ••••nerai and < at* (. : .-nitrM i,'-; t . i "rant that by "* n .... . .xclusive cognizance of all criro-s under the laws of the United States was confided to the district and Circuit Courts, except where the laws of the. Coital States shall otherwise direct. Hut almost from the origin of our Government, Congress has, from time to time in providing for the punishment of crimes, reserved to the several States, jurisdiction to punish said crimes where they were punishable under the State law. The acts of 21st April, 1806, 2nd vol. Statutes, p. 405; 24th of February, -1807, 2nd vol., p. 423; and 10th of April. ISI6, 3d vol., p. 275, were laws of this character passed by Congress. And the act of the 3rd of March, 1825, under which this indictment is brought, in its 26th sect, n enacts, " That nothing in this act contained shot! be construed to deprive the Courts of the individual States of jurisdiction under the laws of the several Slabs over offences mode, punishable, by this act." This subject of the concurrent jurisdiction to punish for crime, came before the Supreme Court of the United States in tiie case of Houston r*. Moore—s Wheaton's report 1 and the concurrent jurisdiction WHS sustained by that learned court in a very able opinion, delivered by Judge Washington: and in the close of that opinion he referred to a difficulty as to whether the sentence of one jurisdic tion would oust the jurisdiction of the other. And the de cision on this point was. that the sentence of either court, whether of conviction or acquittal, might be pleaded in bar of a prosecution before the other. The only authority to sustain the position of the traversers' counsel in refer ence to the construction of the 17th subsection of the consti tution to which I have referred, will he found to he a doubt suggested by Judge Story, in the ease of United States rs. Camell. in 2 Mason 66. It is in these words, "For it may well he doubted, whether Con gress are, by the terms of the Constitution, at liberty to purchase lands for these forts, &c., with the consent of a State Legislature, where such consent is so qualilicd that it will not justify the exclusive legislation of Con gress there." The point did not arise in that case, for the reservation there was merely to serve the civil and crim inal process of the State. And it is this doubt or that learned Judge which is carried through the different commentaries on the Constitution, to which reference has been made. And in the case of the U. S. vs. itavis. this same Judge maintained the validity of the act of 1825, which provided for the punishment of crimes in pi,tecs under the jurisdiction, but not under the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the United States. He therefore maintained necessarily, that the United States could take a cession of territory with aconcurrent jurisdiction. And the doubt which he suggested in 1819 must have been removed be fore 1829, by the industry and researches of an intellect which ranged over every branch of jurisprudence, hut shone with a wisdom seldom equalled in the departments of admiralty and maritime law. The conviction of my mind is clear, that the General Government cottid take un der the Constitution what Maryland has ceiled by the act of 1856, a concurrent jurisdiction to punish crime com mitted on the Post Office lot in this city; und the motion to quash the indictment in this case must be overruled. The Judge was interrupted in the delivery of his decision, by lit" announcement that the Grand Jury had finished all matters for their consideration, whereupon Judge Giles, discharged the body, ex pressing the thanks of the Court, for the faithful and prompt manner in which they bad attended to their duties; remarking that there had never been a jury during hh term of ollice. which bad been more careful and prompt or given more satisfaction to the Court. Tbe Court then proceeded with the trial. In empanelling a jury the counsel for the defence claimed the right of twenty challenges for each prisoner, making over one "hundr d challenges in all. The regular jury list was exhausted, and only five jurors secured. The Judge ordered the Marshal to summons one hundred talismen, and the Court took a recess of two hours. At two o'clock Court was again called, and the business of empannelling a jury resumed. Manv of those gentlemen sum moned as talismen had formed and expressed opini ons, and were therefore disqualified as jurors. The counsel for the prisoners made fifty-nine challenges before a jury was secured, and among those chal lenged were many of the most worthy men of the city. In fact the entire list of talisin'cn was com posed ol the best citizens. The following gentle men constitutes the jury to try tbe cause : Livingston M. Bennett, John C. Smith, George Tlarman. J. Totvnsley Chase, 5V m. 11. Krazier, Geo, 55. Mowbray, X. S. Brenton, Jas. C. Smith, Alex. Murdoch, Robert Keys, George liyrd, and John Morehvad. -Messrs. Bennett, John C. Smith, Geo. Barman, 55 m. K. Frazier, and J.Townslev Chase,were of the regular jury list, and the other members were of the talismen. After securing the jury, Judge Giles adjourned the Court until to-day at 10 o'clock.

Nothing of public interest done in this Court on Saturday. ilrs. Mary Twiggs was hung at Danville. Pa., on Friday, and an immense crowd witnessed the exe cution. Mrs. Twiggs was convicted of the murder of Mrs. Catharine Ann Clark by poisoning her with arsenic. The husband of Mrs. Clark was convicted of the same charge, and was hung on the 20th of last mouth. The crime was committed in theapring of 1857. Mrs. Clark had been on a visit to Phila delphia, and returned to her home in bad health.— The poison is supposed to have been administered in her medicine. Mrs. Twiggs acted as nurse. Clark and she were the only ones who attended Mrs. Clark during her illness. Both were convicted on the strongest circumstantial evidence. A new trial was applied for, and a writ of error argued before the Supreme Court, when the decision of the lower tri bunal was confirmed. Every effort was made to obtain a pardon for Mrs. Twiggs. Petitions were extensively circulated and signed, but Gov. Packer, after a careful review of all the circumstances in connection with the case, refused to grant the request. Two military companies were on the ground. She made a few remarks on the scaffold, which she as cended with difficulty, and earnestly protested her entire innocence of the crime charged against her. She was listened to with attention, and several appeared to believe her statement. A rowdy named Ward killed John Mortimer, a citizen of Cincinnati, on Thursday last, because Mortimor would not tight hint. The Inquirer savs the murdered man was a very quiet and amiable citizen, generally respected and esteemed by all who knew him tor his many good qualities, kindly disposition and habitual cheeriulaess of temper. RUSSIAN SERF EMANCIPATION. The Emperor Alexander, on his journey to War saw. had to pass through the governments of Tver, Kostroma, Jaroslay, Nijuli-Novgorod, Vladimir and Moscow. In most of these his Majesty ad dressed the representatives of the nobility, speak ing chiefly of the topic of the day, the situation of the peasant class. The Moscow correspondent of the Nord transmits some of the Emperor's addresses, which we translate. To the nobles of the govern ment of Tver the Emperor said : "Gentlemen: I am happy to embrace the oppor tunity of expressing to the nobility of Tver mv gra titude for its devotedness and zealous readiness to contribute, like all my other governments, as far as possible to the public weal. This you proved to me during the late war, when you formed your militia; and I have not forgotten the sacrifices then made. I have now confided toyou a work—one of the most important for you and ravself- —the improvement of the condition of the peasants. I hope that you will justify my confidence. It is for your delegates to occupy themselves with this important affair. Weigh the matter well, deliberate yourselves, and seek the means of regulating the new condition of the pea santry according to each locality, and in conformity with the principles announced in mv rescripts, in order that the results may riot entail inconvenience either upon them or yourselves. You know how much 1 have your welfare at heart; but I hope, also, that the interest of your peasants is d-ar to von. I have, therefore, the conviction that you will strive to have everything regulated in a matter useful to the common interests of all. When your prelimi nary labors shall have terminated, tlie propositions of the committee will be presented to me bv the ministry, and T have alreadv arranged for two mem bers elected by this committee to attend the delibe rations that will take place in thejrencral committee assembled at St. Petersburg, purpose of ex amining all the propositions emanating from the several committees of the empire. It is impossible for us not to proceed harmoniouslv in our acts, since our sole desire is the general welfare of Russia. 1 leave you with the firm conviction that you will jus tify my expectation and confidence, and remain per suaded that you will aid, and not impede me." At Kostroma the Emperor spoke as follows : '•Gentlemen : The government of Kostroma is connected with rnv family bv historical reminiscen ces, and we regard it as'our cradle. I rejoice, therefore, that after an absence or twenty years 1 again find myself among vou. The reception of yesterday touched me deeply, and I thank you for the zeal with which you have anticipated mv de sire to improve the condition of the peasants.' This question, so seriously affecting Russia's future, moves me to the heart. T hope you will justily my expectation in this question, which is in a manner a vital question, by adapting to the local wants the fundamental principles enunciated in mv rescripts, and by terminating, with God's aid, this work with out detriment to yourselves or the peasants. To present the result of your discissions, 1 give you permission to choose from among you two deputies, who will repair to St. Petersburg' when the labors of the committee shall have ended, with a view to revise your propositions definitely. I hope you will justify my confidence; and I reiterate my gratitude to you for the devotedness you displayed for me in tlie late war, as likewise for your present services and for all vour sacrifices." To the nobilitj* of Xijni-Novgorod the Emperor spoke as follows: 4< l rejoice, gentlemen, at being able to thank vnu in person for your patriotism, a sentiment l>v which the nobles of Xijni have ever distinguished them selves. At every call from our country you have always been found hy her among the foremost: thus, in the late and afflicting war you were the first to respond to my call, and loyally did vou advance; your militia troops were among the best; and I have also again to thank you for having been the first to respond to mv expectation in the grave question touching the improvement of the lot of the pea santry. This is why I desired to distinguish vou, hy receiving your delegates CheremetefT and Potom kin, whom I commissioned to convey to you my thanks,when acquainting you with my intentions and wishes. I have no doubt they performed this their mission. As for me, my object you know, is the pub lic our task, in the grave question now pending is to balance private interests with the welfare of all. \et I hear with regret that egotis tic opinions are springing up in your midst. I re gret this, gentlemen. Selfish views spoil every thing that is good. Abandon them. I depend upon you. I hope they will no longer make their appearance, for then only will the common cause make progress. [ know you have made real efforts and considerably advanced the work. Con tinue! This day the term fixed for the labors ex pires, hut as 1 know that they are net yet, ended, I have consented to prolong it to the Ist of October. Put by the Ist of October you will have completed them, will you not, gentlemen? 1 reckon upon you; I trust in you, and you will not de ceive me. The path is traced out; do not abandon the principles laid down in my rescripts or the programme I gave you. Your labors will be revised in the general committee, and I permit you to delegate two members elec ted from your body to supply all necessary expla nations, and these ought to he made, so as to har monize with the welfare of all. Act, gentlemen, in such away that it may he well for yourselves and not ill for the others. 1 do, indeed, wish you to consult your own interests, hut do not forget those of others. Confiding in you, I hope you will justi fy mv confidence. If you prepare this great work conscientiously and bring it to a happy issue, you will give me a fresh proof of your attachment, as likewise of your devotedness, and especially of those disinterested efforts for which the Xijni-Xovgorod ians have ever distinguished themselves, the public weal being their end and aim. I am happy, gen tlemen, 1 repeat, at finding myself among vou after absence of twonty-one years." A< v.. rw. where tt* aires proposed by the f.mperor had not been very favorably received, his Majesty said: '•Gentlemen: I nm always happy at being able to address thanks to the nobility; but it is not in m v nature to speak against my conscience. 1 always sneak the truth, and, to my great regret, I this day cannot thank you. You tnav remember, two years ago, in this hall, I spoke to you of the necessity of proceeding, sooner or later,"to the reform of those laws which regulate servitude —a reform that must come from above, that it may not come from below. My words have been ill understood. Since then, this reform has been the object of my constant solici tude, and having invoked the Divine blessing on my undertaking, I have commenced the work. When, at the request of the governments of St. Petersburg and Lithuania, my rescripts appeared, I expected, I confess, that the nobility of Moscow would have been the first to answer my appeal. But it was the nobles of .Nijnii-Novgorod who took the lead, and the government of Moscow figures neither in the second nor the third rank. I have felt great sorrow at this, because I am proud of having been born at Moscow, because I always loved this city when heir apparent to the throne, because 1 still love it as my native city. I have fixed for you the bases of the reform, and I shall never swerve from them." Here the Etnperor explained the fundamental principles of the abolition of serfdom, as contained in his rescripts, and continued as follows: "I love the nobility: I regard it as the first sup port of the throne. 1 desire the welfare of the peo ple, but have no intention that it should be effected to your detriment; hut you yourselves, in your own interest, ought to endeavor to improve the condi tion of the peasants. Remember that all Russia has its eves fixed on the government of Moscow. I am always ready to do for you all that lies in my power to do; give me, then, the possibility of espousing your interests. Do you understand me, gentlemen ? I have been told 'that the committee have already effected much; 1 have read the min utes of its sittings; I have 'approved several of the regulations. Once again, 1 repeat to you, gentle men, that you so act as to enable me to take up your interests. It is thus that you will justify the confidence 1 have placed in you."—A'. Y. Evening Post. FORGERY OF TURKISH MOXEY. Close upon the discovery of the immense forgery of Turkish paper money in this city come revela tions of attempted forgeries of Turkish coin in Eng land. Most probably the woman who imposed up on one of our city printers was a member of a gang who have divided their operations between the two countries. A Greek merchant, named Antonio Calvocorrcssi, residing in Manchester, Eng land, was the first party arrested on that side of the Atlantic, tbe charge against him being that lie had caused to be made in Brimingham a large quan tity of Turkish piastres, for circulation in Alexan dria, Syria, and Turkey. About fifty-five gross of the coin were made and forwarded to him before the fraudulent nature of tlio transaction was sus pected. Calvocorrcssi was committed for trial, hut admitted to bail, the offence being a misdemean or and not a felony. Immediately following upon this arrest came a discovery that a similar fraud was on foot in London, the parties to it being two Frenchmen, named Boiserrole and Ilugon. Thev had negotiated for and procured a die-press, and were in treaty for dies for Turkish coins of various values, representing themselves as authorized agents of the Turkish Government. Suspicion seems to have been excited by their presenting worn specimens of the coins and desiring dies that would lie a fac-simile of tliern in their worn condi tion. They had so far succeeded that the dies were procured, and impressions taken to test them, and metal purchased and shipped to Liverpool. Ilugon was arrested, hut Boiserrole had left, and arrange ments had been made for shipping the press and dies abroad. It was supposed that the coinage was to be made abroad, and that Boiserrole had gone to some foreign port to receive them. The examina tion of Hngon had been postponed to allow of furth er search for his accomplice.— Xcic York Commer cial Advertiser. RAILWAY NEWS. A Convention of 55'estern Railroads will be held in this city November 10th, at 7 I'. M., for the pur pose of perfecting a 55'estern Railroad organization for the protection of their mutual interests, and for the arrangement of freight rates and other matters. The representatives of Eastern Railroads will be in vited as spectators merely. The Cleveland & Pittsburg Railroad have an nounced to the public that thev are in the field as competitors for the carrying trade between Cleve land and New s'ork. They offer to carry freight between those two points by "all rail" via I'itts butg and 1 hiladelphia, at the same rates as charged byway of Dunkirk or Buffalo, and in as good time. —Cleveland (0.) Herald. The report of the Chief Engineer of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad says that the rail lairing on the Lynchburg Extension of the Orange and Alexandrta Railroad will be commenced bv the • u / neat, near Charlottsvillle, and that with tayorable weather it may be prosecuted, so as to reach the Scottsville Turnpike by the middle of next spring, and that the rails—the work commenc ing simultaneously at the North and South ends of the road—will be readv for effective transportation ot passengers and freight to and from Lynchburg At the meeting of the stockholders of the Manas ses Gap Railroad, held in Alexandria, s*a.. Edward C. Marshall was unanimously re-elected President of the Company for the ensuing year. Hiram Martz, of Rockingham, and B. 11. Lam bert, ot Alexandria, were unanimously re-elected directors on the part of the stockholders. The report shows that the tonnage'and travel the past year, ending the 30th of September, 1858 were diminished by bad crops and scarcity of money. The amount of tonnage was reduced 12 per cent.; travel per cent. Both eastward and westward transportation suffered. The heavy arti cles of yvheat, flour, and iron, bound eastward, and plaster, Ac., going westward, were all brought in smaller quantities. The loss of revenue accruing from this cause was made up in part by higher charges on transporta tion, hut mainly by lessened expenses, which ena bled the road to maintain an average net income. The total debt of the road is $64G,000: the re ceipts for the past year $125,598; working expen ses, $G0,044; net earnings, $G5,558. This sum, however, was reduced to $38,801 by the charges ot the Orange and Alexandria road, showing an increased income of only about 5620 on the pre ceding year. The Company have high hopes of increased pros perity by the early completion of the road to Mount Jackson an* Harrisonburg. MA ILL? FOR GERMANY.

BABON WARD, THE HOSTLER PREMIER OF PARMA.— 1 Baton Ward the famed Yorkshire groom, who plavcd so prominent a part at the Court of Parma, died the night <>F October 5, at Vienna. The his torv o. in is extraordinary man is full of remarkable events, I elt Yorkshire a boy in the pay of 1 rince Licbtenstein of Hungary, and after a four years' successful career on the'turf at Vienna as a jockey he became employed by the then reigning Duke ol Lucca. He was at Lucca promoted from the stable to be valet to his lioval Highness. This service he performed up to" 1846. About that period he was made Master of the Horse to tlie Ducal Court. Eventually he became Minister of the Household and Minister of Finance which office he held when the Duke abdicated in 1848. At this period he became an active agent of Austria during the revolution. As Austria triumphed he returned to Parma as Prime Minister, and negotia ted the abdication of Charles 11., and placed the youthful Charles 111. on the throne; who, it will be remembered was assasinated before his own palace, in 1851. As soon as Charles 111. came to the throne the then Baron- Ward was sent to Germany by his patron as Minister Plenipotentiary, to represent Parma at the court of Vienna. This post he held up to the time of his royal patron's tragical end. When the present Duchess Regent assumed State authority Ward retired from public life, and took to agricultural pursuits in the Austrian dominions. W itbqut any educational foundation he contrived to write anu speak German, French and Italian, and conducted the affairs of State with considera ble cleverness, if not with remarkable straightfor wardness. Baron Ward was married to an humble person of A ienna, and lias left four children. Per haps no man of modern times passed a more varied and romantic life than Ward, the groom, states man and friend of sovereigns. From the stable he rose to the highest offices of a little kingdom, at a period of great European political interest, and died in retirement, pursuing the rustic occupation of a farmer, carrying with him to the grave many curious arcana imperii. A GIRL TV OCXDING AND PURSUING A BURGLAR.— A few days ago, the Rev. John Parker, of Carmel, Putnam county, New York, had occasion to leave home. During the night, a young English girl, a domestic in the house, was awakened by a noise proceeding from the next room. She arose, and arming herself with a corn slash, a formidable weapon, went boldly into tlie next room to learn the cause, when she saw a huge black arm thrust through the window into the room, attempting to reach the fastening inside. She ordered the in truder to leave, and the order being unheeded, the corn slash descended with great force upon tlie arm, between the wrist and the elbow, inflicting a fearful gash. The npgro did nnt wait for further orders, but left the house, and ran across a meadow, followed by the brave girl, with the bloody corn slash in her liand. The next morning traces of blood were tracked to a considerable distance. The negro remained quiet until last week, when I)r. Adams was called to dress the wound, and found that, the limb would have to be amputated for want of timely care. rile Savannah itcpnbliran savs of the yellow fe ver in that city: It still "drags its slow length along," and. without presenting a fatality afall alarming, will probably continue to do so'until a killing frost shall put an end to the invader.

Tin; HKOKNT FIGHT WITH THE CAMANCIIES. The following fetter, from a geioleiiian attached to thy United Slates surveying party in the Indian territory to his relative in thi.- city, furnishes sonie additional information in regard to the recent fight between a detachment of United States troops, un der command of Major Van Dorn, and a party of Camancbe Indians: FORT ARBITCKLE, (C. N.,) Oct. 2,1858. An express has just arrived from Major Van Dorn's command for supplies and medical assis tance. They had an engagement yesterday with three hundred Camanches encamped near the Wit ciiita village, some fifty miles northwest of this place. Major Van Dorn'was badly wounded in the arm and abdomen, and his recovery is considered very doubtful. Lieut. Van Camp fell, pierced through the heart by an arrow. Five soldiers were killed and several are missing, including the hos pital steward with the medicines. Two unfortu nate Witehitas were also killed; one of them was well known to us all as a good reliable man. Thirty Camanches fell. They had lost all their horses, over three hundred, a few days previous, they be ing stolen by the Texan Indians accompanying Maj. V. D's. troops. Dr. Gaenslen, TJ. S. Army, with twenty men and a wagon and ambulance," has started, and will reach the scence of the unfortunate occurrence to morrow, near noon, if no accident happens. The road is very rough. Much anxiety exists for the party of fifty men under Lieut. Burnett, now en camped on Otter Creek, protecting the depot of supplies. It must be inanv days before any assist ance can be afforded him. " This small party could not withstand a band of exasperated Camanches. This conflict is very unfortunate from the fact that the Camanches attacked were those that were to visit this post to return horses stolen from this neighborhood some time since. They were the onlv band friendly, and might have been instrumental in bringing to peace the rest of the tribes. They had already sent in by the Witchita chief several of the stolen horses, and were coming in with the rest, when the Indians accompanying Major Van Dorn's troops stampeded three hundred and fifty of their horses, including those to be returned here. The horses being stolen, the Witehitas persuaded the Camanche chiefs not to follow then, but that they would send in word to the commanding officer that their horses were all stolen. Captain Prince replied that they need not come in without the horses, and also gave the Witchita chief a letter to be shown to Major Van Dorn, informing him that they were friends. This letter I suppose the Witehitas were afraid to take to Major Van Dorn. It is very much to be re gretted that some messenger was not sent to the commander of cavalry informing him of the peace ful intentions of these unfortunate Indians. Had the Witchita agent been at his post all this trouble would have been avoided. War has now began in earnest, and there is no saying where it wili terminate, l'eace could have been made very easily, and been faithfully kept, if the Camanches were protected. They are very much sinned against, and I believe the Texas Ran gers and the Reserve Indians of Major Neighbours cause two-thirds of the troubles on this frontier. A party of sixty or one hundred start out every few months and steal Camanche horses by hundreds; of cou so the wild Indian retaliate. This unhappy event will cause delay and perhaps stop the survey of the lines of the Indian Territory this winter. Certainly we cannot go out until mat ters are better understood.— Nat. Intel. A CUBE FOR RHEUMATISM. Some six months ago, a young gentleman, hoard ing at the Spencer House, caught cold in his breast, producing rheumatism and such general derange ment of the system that he was unable to attend to business. The rheumatism extended to every por tion of his body, ami he suffered intensely, being often compelled to lie in bed for several days at a time. His physicians—of whom he had the ablest —prescribed in vain, and their unfortunate patient was, finally, advised to go South, as the only chance of recovery. What added an additional pang to the young man's condition was that he was engaged to be mar ried to a beautiful voung lady, and the day fixed for their nuptials had already passed some three weeks. It was with great effort he consented to begin his travels, and nothing less than the assurance that it was the only way to save his life would have in duced him to undertake the dillicult step. He would not care, the afflicted said, on his own account, but to die just as he was on the point of being united to "Clarissa" was more than he could bear with firm ness. And then, he continued, how would she sup port his absence ; how could she be herself when he was hundreds of miles away, and liable at any mo ment to a fatal termination of his disease ? At last, the patient deeming it better for his own sake and that of the lovely Clarissa, he departed, taking with him the fond remembrance of her tear fully tender adieu. He visited the famous Hot Springs of Arkansas, the mild climate of Florida, and the genial shores of Cuba to no purpose. All the medical gentlemen with whom he consulted told him he could not live; that the most that could be done was to render him easy, and retard as long as possible his steady progress to the grave. Weary of physicians, attempted cures and life itself, he came home to die, and again went to the Spencer House, thinking he would there receive from the kindly proprietors all the attention he could at anv place, not in every sense a home. He was carried from the boat to a hotel, and, more dead than alive, placed in the comfortable apart ment he had before occupied. On the sixth day after his return, he learned that his betrothed— thinking her lover could not survive, and wishing probably to lose no time in her connubial relations had been married the day previous to another per son, more wealthy, if less meritorious than he. All the friends of the deceived lover thought that this would prove fatal at once, in his then state of health, but instead of their anticipations being realized, in a week from the day of the reception of the unsus pected news he arose from his bed and rapidly re covered, and in less than a month was as well as ever.— Cincinnati Inquirer. i> a ?hington, Potomac River, and Richmond Railroad, issued round trip tickets on Saturday, running to the 7th October, for $6.

Husk, the New Orleans papers have Brownsville dates to the 13th ' ns L J,' , takes the following from the Brownsville rta'J the 13th: .... r We have files of Mexican papers with dates Iron Victoria to the 30th September, from Tampico to the 2d and from Monterey to the 3d instant. Since our last issue, it appears that things in that country have undergone a remarkable change, anil that not at all favorable to the cause of Mexican liberty. It seems that the contending forces ot Vidaurri and Miramon have at last had the encoun ter that had for so long been anticipated between them, the result of which was the partial defeat ot the Constitutional forces. It seems that Gen. Vidaurri was not prepared to resist an attack, and hence his defeat in this battle. The fact is that Vidaurri had heretofore thought himself invincible and tfie positions of his army im pervious. This feeling of self reliance on his part had reached a degree of neglect which was taken advantage of by his enemy at the moment when ho least expected an onset from him. Taking into consideration that this calamitous event to the Lib eral party has been but partially felt among them, it will only tend to make them more cautious, to know their enemies better, and to work with more avidity in defense of their rights and constitutional libertv. The Flag gives Gen. Vidaurri's report of the battle of the 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th and 29th Sept. to the Governor pro tern., of the State of N'ucva Leon. He frankly admits the defeat and states that nearly all the war train was lost. The Fl"'J savs: We admire the frank way in which the "Chief of the North" acknowledges his defeat, though he ap pears more despondent than he would have felt if at the time of making the above report he had known the thorough result of the affray; for it ap pears from later dates received by us yesterday up to the 6th inst., that the loss sustained was not so great as reported, as only a portion of the train of war had been captured by Miramon, and the liber al troops having made their retreat in an organized order. Gen. Vidaurai apparently knew not this when he wrote, for he was then forty miles from the scene of battle, already on his retreat, thinking that everything had been lost, and cautiously avoid- a complete rout. The official paper of Monterey states that Gen. Vidaurri has given orders to the commander at Tampico for another park of artillery, where there is a plenty to be had, which will soon be on tho field, together with many forces that are concen trating about Vidaurri t renew the attaek. El Prisma, published in Tampico, with dates of the 2d ir.st., says that Col. Guadalupe Garcia, who had entirely recovered his health, would leave on that day for the interior with 300 men of infantry and three pieces of artillery. The battle mentioned in the Flan; of the 13th, re sulted in the defeat of the Liberal party. Rumor says that 500 men were killed and 2,000 "taken pris oners, with the loss of artillery, provisions, etc. — Vidaurri was fifteen leagues from the scene of ac tion. The battle must have been fought under the command of some subordinate ollieer. Nothing else of interest beyond what is contained in the papers. An express arrived at Matamoras on the 13th, from Monterey, bringing dates to the 10th, and no ticing the arrival of Vidaurri there on the Bth. PoßTUo.tr, INTERFERING WITH THE FRENCH SLAVE TRADE.—Under a properly conducted system, the French negro colonization scheme might have been so worked as to have been a blessing both to the negro and to the country where his services were in urgent demand, But what was originally as serted to be "voluntary emigration" has turned out to be the slave-trade in a most obnoxious form, and there is no longer any doubt that the practice of carrying off Africans by force for the French Plan tations receives the sanction and support of the Im perial Government. We published, not long since, the story of the French ship Kcgina Colli, which was notoriously engaged in the Slave trade, and which was cap tured and brought into the port of Monrovia by the English packet-ship Kthiope. The captain of the Regina Coeli complained of the act to the French Naval commander on the station, and that oflicer, in a bombastic protest, declared that the capture had been arbitrary and illegal, and ordered that the captain be placed in immediate possession of his ship. This order was not obeyed bv the President of Liberia, in whose jurisdiction ami un der whose authority the seizure was effected, and we have not heard that either upon him or upon the British Government was any reclamation made. The precedent, however, has hot been adopted in the case of the Charles Georges, lately seized, not by English, but by Portuguese authority, in one of the ports of Mozambique—a port, bv the way, which is closed to general commerce, except under special circumstances. The captain of the Charles Georges alleged that sho was leaky, and that her rigging needed repair ; but sho was overhauled, and the excuse was found to be fictitious. She had ne groes on board; and, in direct violation of Portu guese law, she was lying in a Portuguese port fitted out for the slave-trade. Under these circumstances, the authorities took possession of the vessel, and .-lie is at present lying in the Tagus. Captain llouxel, her commander, writes that the most firm and posi tive demands for reparation were at once made by the French Minister at Lisbon; and that they have not been so promptly responded to, as to pretermit the dispatch of ships-nf-war to sanction them, must be ascribed to their offensive presentation or insult ing tenor. For the same authority states that bis vessel is perfectly free to go where it pleases, and that, in its eagerness to forestall the Sc.ifii mm a,e ofßd^Jffi re . hia Imp, :to release the ship. :, n J pay its niaaiVn'oomi francs inueninitv. 11 Such, then, is tfie rasas belli between Franc,,...... Portugal, and it explains the announcement, that to enforce its demands for indemnity to the owners of the Charles Georges, the Imperial Government had sent two war steamers to the Tagus. There is no material difference between this ease and that of the Regina Coeli, except that the captors of the latter were British, x\ bile the former was seized by a power which can be bullied with comparative impunity. As Portugal has justice on her side of the quarrel, we hope it will he adjusted to her hon or and advantage. And if the pretensions of the Imperial Government are pressed too far, Great Britain can scarcely refuse to interfere in behalf of an ancient ally, and of principles which she has la bored so assiduously to maintain before the world. —N. f. Times. AN'CIF.XT EGYPT AXI> MODERN" MOW YORK. E From the New I 'orb Evening Post. ] Some time since we published an account bv Professor Felton, of Harvard College, of explora tions made by him while visiting Dr. Abbott's Egyptian Mus'eum in this citv. He had then, in examining some tablets used in the instruction of the youth of Alexandria more than two thousand years ago, deciphered fragments of Greek poetrv, which, on apparently satisfactory grounds, he at tributed to the Greek poet Mcuander, anil which were not included inanv compositions previously recognised as from the li'and of that elegant dram atist. It appears, by a report of the proceedings of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences that the same learned professor has lately contin ued his researches, and with equal success, reveal ing to us in the "copies" of the Egyptian boy, as penned by the pedagogues of Alexandria, further apothegms and passages from ancient Grecian let ters, brief and imperfect, to be sure, but giving a glimpse of antiquity that stimulates, if it d*oes not satisfy, the scholar's curiosity. The school exercises and copy-hooks of the Greco-Egyptian youth of the age of the Ptolemies are here for the first time disclosed to us, with the written expressions of the teacher's impatience or approval, retained centuries after the cause which gave rise to them. Those unhappy urchins, whose school-day flagellations antedate the dawn of Christianity, have left on the tablets which retain their pot-ho"oks and initial at tempts at chirograph v pithy sayings, which embody and condense the evcry-day wisdom of a genera tion, as well as historical facts, which otherwise would be unknown to us. And these things are brought to light by the mere accident of a Cam bridge professor's visit to the museum of Dr Ab bott. What a combination—the year of our Lord 1858 and the year 200 before the Christian era, the school benches of ancient Alexandria and the show rooms of Broadway, which so many thousands daily pass by without the curiosity to enter! Truly there are more things in this multitudinous, noisy citv of ours than arc always dreamed of in the philosophy of its inhabitants. 1 J MARINE AFFAIRS. [From Ot( yew York Tribune.] An exhibition of an improved life-boat, the inven tion of M..M.Camp, of New Haven, Conn 'took place on Friday afternoon in the North River off the Battery, before a Commission appointed bv the Secretary ot the Treasury. The boat is thirty feet long, eight feet beam, and four feet hold, and decked over, so that it can be entirely inclosed, and the occupants protected from the washing ot the sea when required during a storm or heavy blow bv means of a water-tfcht hatch. It is propelled by means of a propeller wheel, worked with a crank by the inmates of the hold, and can be driven at a speed ot six to eight miles per hour with less effort than would be required to move it at the same rate with oars Its capacity is such that fifty persons can be seated in the hold, while thirty more may be lashed to and sustained upon the deck—givinw it a greater capacity for saving life in cases <Tf shipw reck than any other improvement yet brought before the pubhe. It is provided with water tanks and bread lockers of sufficient size to meet the wants erf a lull load of persons under any ordinary circumstances. The air-chambers in the stern and stem would keep it buoyant, even if it were stove in, and cause it to right itself incase it should bo overturned. Buoyancy is further promoted by a bag of cork attached to the sides below the gun wale, which also serves as a fender to prevent iniurv to the boat should it be thrown against the side of a vessel in a heavy sea. The hold of the boat is divided into two com partments by a bulkhead, through which an aper ture is made for entrance to the rear compartment tiom the front, should it be necessary to keep the main hatch closed during a heavy sea. Bv this means the boat is prevented from being tilled with water, while loading in a storm. The boat may be lowered into the water from the vessel with perfect security, even during the running ot the heaviest sea, and instantly released from the K. V I ky means of a novel eve-bolt invented by Mr. Camp. The peculiarity of this eye-bolt con sists in Laving the upper part against which the tall book bears, made moveable upon a pivot and sustained by a catch which can be removed, even under a heavy load, so as to allow the hook to be treed by a slight effort on the part of a person ope rating both bolts at the same time, thus setting the boat adrift upon the water with perfect safety. Such a contrivance would have saved the boats of the Aus tria from swamping. The advantages of having a boat entirely inclpsed, so as to protect its occupants from tbe wash of the sea, and provided with means of propulsion to enable it to be navigated to the shore from the wreck, are apparent. In heavy weather it may be steered from beloiv deck, there being a small raised hatch, with a window in front for observation, and a binnacle, compass, ami all the requisites for navigating the craft in anv direc tion. In addition to the propeller, a mast ami sails are lashed to the deck, ready for use in favorable weather. We regard this boat as admirably calculated for saving life in shipwreck, and believe that it ought to come into general use. There will Be another exhibition of it on Monday afternoon, at the same place. The novelty of seeing a craft, with not a person visible on board, moving hither and thither at a rapid pace, obedient to tier helm, is certainly well worth a walk to the Battery. A new feature in duelling was introduced m an affair f honor which came off a few days since in Chicago between a bank clerk and a hotel clerk. To insure a meeting SIOO forfeit was put up, after the fashion of horse-racers. The New York police are making war on the for tune-tellers of that city.
