BOAKD OF TRADE. Committee of Arbitration for 'he month of November. J JAMES GETTY, A FULLER CRAVE, I JJS- F. PENDERGABT, \V. T. i'\vi>sTßEKr. 1 AUGUSTUS C. PRACHT. gforattetS 5® Commercial Ecbtcm. BALTIMORE, November 3, 1858. The sluggishness which has prevailed in the Stock market for sometime past still continues, and there was scarcely anything done to-day except in North ern Central Railroad, which exhibits a declining tendency. At the Hoard there were sales of 506 shares of this stock at $22% cash and buyer 2 days and $22% buyer CO days,closing at $2212 hid, $22% asked, regular way, % lower than yesterday. Af ter the board sales of 400 shares were made at $22% buyer 60 days. In Baltimore and Ohio there were no transactions, the closing bid being at $56%, % lower than the previous day, but held at SSB. The only sale of Bank stock was 12 shares Bank of Com merce at $25. the same as last rate. We note a sale of 10 shares Santa Clara Mining at $lO%, which is the same as the price last obtained. For Canton s2l, was offered, % higher than yesterday. In Baltimore city 6's there was nothing doing, 1890's were offered % lower than the closing price ob tained yesterday, 00 being hid, 99% asked. There is no change to note in Railroad bonds, and we have no transactions to report in any description. At New York stocks were generally pretty steady to-day, with a dull market. We are without any report of the sales at the Second Board. Virginia 6's fell off %, and Missouri advanced %. Erie im proved %, hut Cleveland and Toledo receded %. — Other fancies remain without change. The New York Tribune of to-day, in speaking of the money market of that city, says: The money market generally does not sympathize to any extent with the attempt of certain Banks to advance the rates of interest. In some cases slightly increased rates have ben paid, and there arc probably fewer loans making at extreme low rates than during last week. But borrowers still continue to obtain call loans.on favorite collat ,'rals at 3 J 4 per cent., and first class paper is pnssed Hi 3 i■ • r cent B tstly at I' 6 |'** cent. The Foreign Exchange market closed quite heavy, ami the amount of trar saclions for the Boston steamer has been quite moderate. A large number of bills is left over.

The total amount of bonds cancelled up to the I 30th ult. was $981,000. ASSETS OF THE OHIO LIFE AM) TRUST COMPANY. Total , $1,116.866.05 — Bonds and Notes, Good, Bird and J Doubtful. [From the Cincinnati Gazette , Nov. I.] Below will be found a complete list of the assets of the Ohio Life Insurance and Trust Company, which were taken possession of by SherilT Mathers, under authority from the Superior Court. It will be seen that, the sum total amounts to $1,416,866.05, of which $14,000 is in cadi. On Saturday afternoon Jas. P. Kilbreath. Esq., called upon the Sheriff and made a demand for the surrender of the assets, by virtue of his appointment as receiver by the Fnit' d States Court. As was anticipated. Sheriff Ma thers pointed to the broad seal of the Superior Court as his authority for holding on to the funds, and declined to hand over any portion of the Trust Company pro perty which happened to be in his possession. Mr. Kilbreath. therefore, returned without the spoils to counsel with his friends as to the next proper st-p to be taken in the business. What it will he remains to be seen, although we presume the Sheriff will be cited before the United States Court to answer for con tempt. We understand that the Judges of the United States Court are very firm in the decision rendered last week at the time Mr. Kilbreath was appointed receiver. If this statement he correct, the full strength of the law will un douhedtly be put forth to compel obedience to the process of the Court. Should the proceedings finally be carried on in the United States Court, several important points will have to be decided, which will be sharply contested at every step. For instance, an effort will be 'made to com pel the banks that may have received funds from the Trust Company since it* failure to disgorge the various amounts, to go into the general aggregate for the benefit of all. Another position will be t) compel the stockhold ers who have received dividends since the company be came insolvent, to pay back the sums so paid. The third position, however, and one which will be contested with desperation, will be to make the trustees personally lia ble, anil as they are supposed to be worth, in the aggre gate. between three and four millions of dollars, not a point in the legal contest will be yielded by either side.— When or where it will end can only be a matter of conjec ture. We subjoin a list of the assest in the hands of the Sheriff, which has been prepared with some care: SCHEDULE OF ASSETS OF THE TRUST COMPANY, NOW IN POS SESSION OF THE SHERIFF.

A large proportion of the railroad bonds are as valueless as the paper upon which they are printed, while others may be regarded as good. The bonds of the city, and counties in this and other States, are good, and will eventually be paid, but they comprise hut a small portion of the"assets. Of the $618.4.81 in individual notes, it is safe to predict that not over ten per cent, upon the sunt total will ever be re alized. A portion of these are secured by mortgages upon real estate, but are so mixed up with other transactions that it may require years to arrive at a final settlement. Some of these notes are dated as far back as 1848; a por tion of them have been renewed several times, and others protested and kept on hand. The indebtedness of one firm reaches over SIOO,OOO, for which it would probably be wisdom to receipt in full at a very liberal discount. In other Words, the claim may be regarded as in the same position as the Trust Company itself—almost worthless. 11 e trust that every creditor of the company will draw whatever consolation may he possible from the exhibit which we make of the assets in the hands of the Sheriff. FOREIGN—BY THE INDIAN. The affairs of Mr. John Carmiehael, of Liverpool, had conn- before the Bankruptcy Court of that town. Mr. Fletcher, the Liverpool agent of the Bank of England Mr. Myers, of the Liverpool Royal Rank, and Mr. Berry, of Manchester, were chosen trade assignees. The South Australian Register says there is no proba bility of a falling off in the yield of the rich copper mines of South Australia. The Burra-Burra is producing about the same quantity of ore as heretofore, while the rich cop per mines in the nor.h are of extraordinary promise.— Burra-Burra shares are quoted at £l4 2s. ° The electric telegraph from Adelaide to Melbourne was in full work. A new gold field had been discovered in the Port Curtis district, about thirty miles from Rockliampton, and seven from Fitzroy river, and is said to be the seat of a rich au riferous deposit. The Agincourt, from Melbourne, with £253.100 has been eighty-six days out, and the Lincolnshire, with £422.500, sixty-five days at sea. Arrivals of Russian gold were taking place; the total this week will be nearly £200,000. and more will follow. There were no bullion operations at the Bank of England. Monday. October 18. The Cambria had arrived with the heavy portion of the Australian mail and £166.649 in gold. Tiie firm of Messrs. William Arnold & Sons,of Bil liter street, London, hemp manufacturers, had suspended. An instalment of 25 per cent, became due, Monday. Oct. 18. on so much of the last issue of £3,579.000 India de bentures as have not already been paid in full. It created, however, no augmentation in the demand for loans, which were obtainable with case on government securities at 1% percent. The next and final instalment will be of like amount on the 15th November. In the discount market exceptional transactions had occurred at 2 per cent., but 2% is the general minimum. Reckoning'the average price at which Western Bank shares were bought by tiie holders in Dundee at £6O. and adding £125 for the calls, the loss to Dundee is upwards of £50.000. The deliveries of tea in London for the week were 832.541 lbs. The Times has the following telegram : "Y IEXXA. Oct. 19.— A decree has been published in the official gazette of this day. according to which the Nation al Bank of Austria is, from the first of November next, to discount bills and make payments on account of public loans with new bank notes. The old ones are to be taken by the National Bank at 105." SALES AT THE BALTIMORE STOCK BOARD. WEDNESDAY, November 3, 1858. 12shs.Bank of C0m..25 lOOshs.X.C.RR. bO.. 2"2 % lOshs.Santa C. M.

[From the Missouri Democrat.

This rooming's Louisville Courier says: '•ln addition to the report we published yesterday, we hear of contracts to packers at 4# and 4# cents, for good heavy hogs." In Nelson and other adjoining counties of Kentucky, contracts have been made at $4.50 gross, ac cording to the Louisville Journal of yesterday, and this is thought to be the market price. This rooming's Chicago Press and Tribune says: The receipts of Hogs to day were quite heavy—a large proportion of which were in excellent condition. The market nevertheless was firmer, and the yards were cleaned out at prices fully above those of yesterday.— Messrs. Van Brunt & Watrous, of New York, shipped to day eighteen car loads. The receipts of cattle were poor, and very few off them were fit for packers, and had to be sold at $2 h 2.15 per 1 100 lbs. gross, flood Cattle are in fair demand.' The Peoria Transcript of a late date has the following: Nothing has been done yet in contracting for Hogs. Our packers are offering $3.50 gross, $4.25 and $4.50 net. Some few sales have been made at $3.50 and $3.75 gross, delivered on the railroad. There are about 17,000 Hogs feeding at our distileries, and the number around here is about equal to last season. The hog cholera is still raging in Sullivan county, Ind. One farmer lost 100 hogs out of a lot of 120. and another had lost 80 fine hogs, for which he was offered SI,OOO a few days previously. SALES OP TOBACCO.—The inspections and sales of to bacco during the year have amounted to 18.065 hhds , with a stock on hand in warehouses, not yet inspected or sold, of 205 hhds., making a total of 19,170 hhds., against 9,012 hhds. the previous year. The tobacco year commences on the l9t of November, and ends with the 31st of October, and. of course, the new year commences to day. The new crop promises to he not only a full average one, hut the quality is expected to be very fine, and we have no doubt that the inspections, at the close of the year, will suin up 10.000 hhd a.—Louisville Courier, Nov. 1 .

FROM THE NORTHWESTERN BOUNDARY. —A private lettei has been received by a gentleman of Wash ington from a member of the Boundary Commis sion appointed to run and mark the boundary line between the United States territory and the Bri tish Possessions, from the Pacific "coast to where the line is already established. It is dated at Camp, on the Bay ofSimiabano, Sept. 15th. The writer says that the English Commissioners appointed to run the same boundary arrived one year after the American Commissioners and took the field in Au gust last, the Americans being ahead of them on the survey. It was the expectation of both parties to reach Fort Colville, near the head waters of the Columbia river by next spring if the Indians do not prove too troublesome. The Indians occupying the country between the Cascade and Rocky moun tains are represented as being far more formidable than Indians generally, as they are more nume rous, and are for the most part mounted and pro vided with excellent arms and ammunition ob tained from the Hudson Bay Company. Their long intercourse with the Company has likewise accus tomed them to the use of arms, and rendered them more intelligent than tribes less favorably situated. It was reported that they had routed a company of 200 white men, while the latter were on the way to the gold diggings on Fraser river. The writer of this letter expresses an unfavorable opinion of the Fraser river gold washings, on account of the depth of water, which makes it almost impossible to pro cure the gold. THE RUSSIAN RAILWAY. —Mr. Joseph Harrison, Jr., publishes a card in the Philadelphia North American, in reply to the Russian railway "revela tions," and verifies his statements by extracts from the report and estimates submitted to the Emperor Nicholas. The report is dated Sept. 16th, 1841. Mr. Harrison says: Mnj. Whistler, the first Ameri can who had anything to do with railways in Rus sia, left this country in June, 1842, and Messrs. Harrison and Winans arrived out in May, 1843, so that the fraud, as pretended to have been brought to light by the astronomical surveys of Professor Struve can hardly be charged to the Americans who have been, or are now in Russia, inasmuch as they were not present until a very long time after the approximate length of the road had been fixed by the report to his imperial majesty, which ap proximate length was only thirteen versts greater than the so called fraudulent length, the actual finished length being three versts shorter than the figure in the "revelations." It is a curious fact that the "revelations" appeared in the London Daily Ne ics on October 16th, and the letter in the Timet of October 20th is also dated Vienna, Octo ber 16th, and purports to be news extracted from the Gazette de Cologne. This news, from its word ing, seems to have all come from the same source, and apparently by rather a circuitous route from St. Petersburg. THE VINTAOK 1X MISSOURI. —From the Volkeblatt' published at the Herman settlement of Hermann in Missouri, we learn that this year's vintage in the vicinity of Hermann, in spite of the poor prospects in the early part of the season, has been an average one. The quantity of wine produce d will reach 25,000 gallons, which is highly satisfactory in view of the tact that last year's yield was enormous, and that the vines seldom yield two consecutive heavy crops. The yield per acre of the different vine yards is variable—three and four hundred gallons per acre being secured in some, while others afford ed only fifty gallons per acre. In general, however, the vinters are well pleased with the result, and have no cause to complain of hard times. WATER AT LAST.— Thanks to the Powers above, we were blessed with a good rain on Friday last, which has afforded an abundant supply of water for canal navigation, and now the boats are sent on their way rejoicing. Daring last week 112 boats left this place for tide-water, carrying 11,860 tons of coal.— Citmb, Civilian, BALTIMORE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 18-58. CITY INTELLIGENCE. EXTENSION OK THE ODD FELLOWS' HA V.. AS is doubtless known to most of our cilizc. s. some years since the Grand Lodge of.Odfl Fellows i f this State purchased the lot of ground on the sooth side of and adjoining the present Hall, with a v:-w to the ultimate extension of their building !o Orange alley, bv which this lot is hounded on the south. The increase of the Order since the completion of the north wing has been such as to render the building, in its present condition, inadequate to the wants of the lodges of this eitv, and acc o duiglv, at the last session of the Grand Lodge, it was resolved to proceed as soon as practicable with the proposed improvement and extension, and a committee, con sisting of the lion. Joshua Yansant. and Messrs. Jas. L. Bidgely, Win. 11. Young, Augustus Ma thiot, 1!. F. Zimmerman, Elias Ware a d Samuel Lew, was appointed to contract for ai d superin tend the work. It was originally designed to erect a wing corresponding with the one on the north side of the main building, but the architect and general superintewlant, Mr. Wm. 11. llcasin, has submitted to thecommittee drawings of as miewhat different character, of which they approve, and which it is .probable will be accepted. They pro vide for a wing of the same style of architecture as the north one, with a tower of a corresponding character, upon the southeastern corner, which will make the entire structure one hundred feet in height. The entrance to this Wing w'f!t*W of the same character as that of the north wing, and the interior arrangements will be as follows: on the main lloor, front, there will be a room 24 by 42 feet, designed as a reading and general reception room for the membership. In the rear will be a Library Room, 24 by 62 feet. The room in the main ball at present used for that purpose, will he arranged for Committee rooms. Upon the second floor there will be two Lodge rooms. 24 by 4 ".'.'! feet, with ante-rooms attached. The stairways will be of oak. and all the remaining wood-work grained in imitation. This extension will make the entire building 106 by 165 feet, and relieve it fron. .its pre sent unfinished appearance. It is designed t com mence the work about the Ist of December, and the contracts will be made with a view to its comple tion by the Ist of September next.

The Paris Unicere attempts to justify the act of the Roman police in taking the Jewish child Morta ra forcibly from its parents, but by the following extract from the Paris correspondence of the Lou don Time*, it appears there are Romish clergymen of eminence in F'rance who express their disapprov al of the proceeding: PARIS, Oct. 18.— The Journal dee Debate publishes a letter from the Abbe Uelacouture, a French ec clesiastic of much reputation, on the abduction of the Jewish child, Mortara, by the Roman officials. The letter, which is intended as a reply to the I Hi rers, exposes its audacity in defending the conduct of the Papal functionaries. "Though some canonists and theologians have al leged," says the Abbe, "that children who had been baptized unknown to their parents or in spite of them can be taken from them, what conclusion can be drawn from it? Must the clergy be rendered responsible for all the opinions more or less eccen tric advanced by the casuists and canonists of the middle ages ? It is false that such a custom as is pretended has been observed in Catholic countries for all time, and particularly in ours; and it is in credible that any one now should dare to say that it requires singular ignorance of the principles of religion to suppose that Christians would be aston ished at it." The Abbe quotes .1 celebrated French theologian, Tournelv, who may be said to represent in himself the old Sorbonne. Tournelv proposes the question as to whether it is permitted to baptize the children of "unbelievers" in spite of their parents. He le plies in the negative. "For (he says) either these children will remain in the power of their parents, and then there will be danger to their fate and to grace of baptism, or they will be taken from them, and then the natural right which the parents have over their children will be violated, which assuredly is no more permit ted than to take by violence the property they le gally possess."— Tournely de Ilnptinnto. The Abbe also quotes the authority of Benedict XIV., who, in a bull 011 this subject, says that— "Children who have not the use of their free will (that is to say, who are in a state of dependence,) and who cannot take care of themselves, are, ac cording to natural law, under the power and guar dianship of their parents." The Vebnts says, "that very probably the opinion of the Abbe Delacouturc is not an isolated one among the French clergy, and that a great many ecclesiastics have shared the surprise and sorrow of the public." A letter from Havana says that three or four days after the explosion a little dog was observed scratching up the earth and whining at a particular spot. A few heavy stones were removed, and beneath them was found, alive the dog's master, a carpenter; his leg, however, was shockingly crushed. Five or six days after the explosion, another man was taken out of the ruins alive. DANGEROUS COUNTERFEIT. — We have been shown, says the Uritlin South , a genuine ten dollar note 011 the Merchant & Planter's Bank of Savannah, with counterfeit signatures. It is signed Augustus Burns, Cashier, and H. Roberts, President. We are in formed that a sheet of the notes were lost, after be ing numbered and dated before the President and Cashier had signed them; this is probably the first one that has been detected, but there are more of them out.

Ben ton and Kigdon came out of the house with Isenhardt; can't say whether Houck was very drunk or very sober, not being used to him much; Houck resisted, he was sli ding along the pavement; witness knocked Houck down; was under the impression Houck had shot Benton; did not draw a pistol on Houck; had none to draw; Houck said "don't shoot me;'' some five or six persons followed Benton and Rigdon. Officer Taylor, recalled.—Was one of the officers who went to Morgan's house to arrest Gambrill: the door on Eutaw street was not open; there was no light over the transom. Capt. Lineweaver knocked at the door: some 5 or 7 minutes afterwards Gambrill came out. dressed in a different suit from what witness saw him have on when at Mrs. Green's; did not think there were six or seven per sons in Morgan's bar-room then; witness thought that the inmates had all gone to bed. By Mr. Pitts.—Don't know if Harris was at Mrs. Green's; did not notice hiin there; did not notice him in the house; after heard "watch" cried, ran towards the house, and saw a man standing on Biddle street, about fifteen yards from the avenue; this man was dressed in alight coat and light slouch hat; did not notice his pants. Captain Lineweaver, recalled.—When witness, Hoffman and friends went up Franklin street, did not see any offi cers on the corner of Eutaw street, did not see the party with the lager beer keg. By Mr. Pitts —Saw no person on Franklin street; saw Sergeant Walters and officer Burke on the avenue, near George street, it was about two minutes after witness passed the corner of Franklin street on the avenue; saw no person on the avenue except tho persons witness men- i j tinned on his direct examination, whom he recognized as j j Henry Gambrill.

By Mr. Whitney.—My reison for not following Gambrill was. to speak candidly. that ! was dubious about follow ■ ing hiin: was afraid that my light would be put out. Mr. Pitts.—Why, how many officers were within call? Witness.—How main officers were in call when officer Benton was shot? My life has been threatened many a time before. Mr. Pitts.—That will do, Mr Rigdon. Witness.—l would just like to ask Mr. Pitts a ques tion. Mr. Whitney.—-Please step down, Mr. Rigdon. Witness.—\ ery well, I will se • Mr. Pitts another time. Mr. Pitts.—Certainly, Mr. Rigdon. you can see me at any time. After the examination of officer Rgidon, Mr. Whitney said that the State had closed its testimony.

Miss Switzer and witness looked out; know Gambrill; did not see him there. Mr. Hack here arose and stated to the Court that as it was now within twenty five minutes of the time of ad journment. and as the counsel had not made any arrange ment as to their speaking yet, he moved the Court to ad journ; he said that the defence had sent for one witrn ss who was not yet here, they proposed to -.xarnine this wit noss to morrow (today) and they thought that would conclude their testimony. The Court said it wouid adjourn until to-day. Mr. Pitts enquired what the rule was in regard to the speaking; "was it the two-hour rule?" Judge Stump.—Oh no, not in a capital case. Mr. Tucker, one of the jurors, asked if the jurors would not he allowed to sec their families, or to arrange some of their business matters. Judge Stump said he could not permit it, they must be kept in charge of the bailiffs. The Court then adjourned until this morning at 10 o'clock. CIRCUIT COURT OP BU.TIMORE. CITY. —Hon. AYM. Geo.

A file ot the Chickasaw and Choctaw Herald, published at Tishomingo city, furnishes us with late news from the Indian territory. An election for governor of the Chickasaws oc curred during the first week in September, result ing as follows: Counties. Harris. Colbert. Love. Kemp. Tishomingo, - - -36 7 1 0 Pontotoc, - 0 76 3 0 Panola, G f 7 57 Pickens, 5 22 22 i 47 111 33 58 No candidate having a majority of all the votes cast, the election, according to the provisions of the constitution, had to be referred to the house of rep resentatives, the choice being between the two hav ing received the largest number of votes. The leg islature mot on the 4th of October, when the votes were officially counted. A difficulty arose in rela tion to the vote of Pontotoc countv, the county judge having neglected to sign the certificate. If the vote of this county were thrown out. Col. Col hurt would have been the lowest instead of the highest candidate, andb e excluded from the choice ot the house. The IL rahl says the speaker had to decide, and having the fear of the Lord before his eyes, he decided for justice rather than law, and admitted Pontotoc. The house then chose 1). Col- I bert governor, by a vote of 19 to 11 for J. Kemp, j the next highest* candidate. D. Colbert was de clared duly elected governor for two years, and was inaugurated the evening of the day of his elec tion. Mr. Martin Sheco, of the Supreme bench, administered the oath of office. This took place in the new capitol building just completed at Tisho mingo Citv. The Choctaw legislature met on the same day at Boggy Depot, the capital of that nation. There has been a good deal of trouble among the Choc taws growing out of a dispute as to the legality of Skullytown constitution. The latest intelligence is, however, that all the difficulties have been settled, and that the two parties have ceased their quar rels. The pupremr mm LDjr fUiickn* -'•> met at I'ih -ou,;„ ff „ ci t v simultaneously with the legislature. Its members are Robert Love, James McCoy, and Martin Sheco. The first named was chosen chief justice. There were but two cases before them, and the Herald promised to publish the opinions, hut the next week recalled the promise, saying that it. was not disposed to make public the ignorance of j the honorable bench, that there was no reason, judgment, or even common sense in the opinions, that there was neither head nor tail to then). The Herald explains that K. Love and J. McCoy were disqualified from sitting, and that the governor had appointed J. E. Anderson chief justice, and C. Col umbus associate. In general news we observe that there had been a two days' religions meeting at the new capital; that only two persons- went forward to be prayed for; and that Kussel McKinney invited all his friends who voted for him for Sheriff, "and none others," to an oyster supper. Several tights.murders, and so forth, are recorded, some of which in tragic and thrilling interest equal similar occurrences in civil izedcommunities, such as New York city. It is quite evident from this account of affairs in the In dian Territory that the inhabitants are acquiring the ways of some of their white neighbors.— Wanh imjton Union. ARRIVAL OP THE FULTON. By the arrival of the steamer Fulton at New York we have our foreign tiles to the 20th ult. ENGLAND. —The Queen, Prince Consort, Princess and Princesses and royal suite, will leave Edinburg on Wednesday morning, Oct. 20, ( London J'ost.) The Font says that Baron de Rothschild, of Paris, had a private audience of the King of the Belgians. The Time* says there is a doubt entertained by the French Government as to whether it is the English or the Spanish Consul who has been assassinated at Tetuan. The despatches of General McMahon an nounce that it is the Spanish Consul—the despatch es received by the Minister of Foreign Affairs say the English Cansul has been assassinated. The Times says: The extraordinary perfection attained in locomotive steam power, as evinced by the success of Bray's traction engine, in daily op eration in Woolwich Dockyard, has attained a high degree of interest. A memorial is about to be pre sented to the government through some of the first houses in London, which will have the concurrence of all who desire to see the law of England re spected, and the public saved from the reproach of perpetually acting upon impulse instead of con science. On Sunday next Mr. Strahan. who was sentenced, with his partner, Sir John Paul, to I t years penal servitude, will have completed three years of that term. The feeling is that his punnish -1 mcnt should now end. The Time* published a brief report by telegraph on Saturday, of a railway accident on the Iliiken head, Lancashire anil Cheshire .luction Railway, by which about 20 persons were injured. The London Herald says: The Marquis of Clanri earde, formerly Postmaster General, had complain ed in a public letter that the mail contract with Messrs. Cunard has been prematurely renewed, notwithstanding the existence < f the Lever line, and his lordship lias suggested a public meeting of the people of Galwav to consider the matter. F'KANCK. —The Times Paris correspondent says that M. Walewski had informed the Israelite Con sistory of Paris that he has, bv order of the Empe ror, sent a note to the French Ambassador at Rome, to be communicated to the Pontiticial government, expressive of the dissatisfaction with which the Emperor has heard of the child Mortara having been forcibly taken away from its parents, and that he has instructed the Ambassador to make strong remonstrances on such conduct. The French Government are constructing a con siderable number of vessels for the transport of cav alry. Although the fortifications of Civita Vichia are making rapid progress, orders had been received from Paris to put on more hands. The London l'oxt has the following contradiction of the rumored assassination: "Marseilles, Octo ber 18.—Despatches from the Consul-General up to the 12tli inst., make no mention of the events sup posed to have occurred at Tetuan." There is nothing from Morocco of more impor tance than news of the ordinary disturbances. Count Ludolph, Neapolitan minister at Munich, has received orders to demand olficially the hand of the Princess Sophia Amelia for the heir of the throne of the two Sicilies. The Time*' Paris correspondent says: "Accord ing to the accounts received from various parts of France, trade is not so active as was expected, now that the period for opening the winter trade has ar rived." ITALY. —The leading topic of political conversa tion in Turin is the alleged rumor of Sir James Hud son's removal from here. The political opponents of Count favour's administration are especially gratified with this report. RUSSIA. —The Augsburg Gazette learns from War saw that Prince Napoleon wos not more than three minutes alone with the Emperor Alexander, but the "Czar" tells a very different story. The Cracow paper atlirms that the Czar and his guest were clos eted together for an hour and a half, and that the countenance of the French Prince was quite radiant when the quitted the Russian monarch. I AUSTRIA. —A steamer had been sent with matcri | als for an electric telegraph between Catturo and Antivari. An earthquake bad done great damage I at Sophia. TUKKF.Y. —The last news from Constantinople is of the iltb inst. The map of Montenegro is finished, and will be brought before the Council. There have been great reductions in the departments of Justice and Police. Lord Stratford Ue Redelilfe bad dined with the Sultan. No Fin TUN IN Auuu.—The report that the French Government was about to declare the ports of Algeria free, is thus pronounced to be unfounded by the Maniteur: "Several journals have announced for some days past, that the Government of the Emperor is con templating the introduction of important modifica | tious into the commercial regime of Algeria. These i pretended projects, and tho discussions to which j thev have given rise, have excited some uneasiness | in the manufacturing districts; but in order to put a stop to the rumors, it is sufficient to sav that the Government has never entertained the thought of making any change in the customs laws which are i in force in Algeria, and which determine its rela i tiona with France. OUR TIEN-SIN TREATY WITH CHINA. TI: AMERICAN MINISTER OVERHAULED —LORD ELGIN GIVING MR. REED THE FOOL'S MATE. V f From the London Times. October 20.] J- .in the commencement of the rupture with the CHrnete authorities, the position of America lias b .I'.nc of complete security. Her interests did ' j- t, !ls they did previously to the treaty of • <iy. upon a mere confidence, however well gro .nded, that England would continue to pursue a generous policy, and would hold open for the world, the door which she had forced open by her own power. The United States had a direct stipu lation with the Chinese government that they should participate in any privileges that might thereafter be granted to any other power. It was quite open to them, therefore, to look on from a distance, and to quietly take possession of a com moii interest in anv concessions that England might obtain. Pet-haps it had been a wiser course, it eertainlv would have been ales expensive course, had she contented herself with this attitude. She, however, thought otherwise. Mr. Reed was despatched to China as the Plenipotentiary of this first-rate pow- ! er. The pacific character of his mission was shown j by his being sent out in a ship which was more powerless than a common opium clipper for anv | purpose of coercion. Before leaving the shores of his native country Mr. Reed was feted bv the com- ; niercial community. He boasted that he"was not a professional diplomatist, but a man of plain mother ' wit; he renounced all crooked proceedings and se-I crct intrigues, and promised to act, as in fact all first-rate diplomatists do act, with candor and resolution. In due time Mr. Reed arrived ! in the Chinese waters. We pass over the | first circumstances of his ambassadorial ca- j reer. liis secret overtures to Yeh were not. perhaps, very demonstrative of his candor, and ' the resignation with which he submitted to the snubbing administered to him by Yeb was not verv j ci editable to his resolution. Such as it was, how- ' ever, it was a diplomatic failure, it was the essay ola tyro , n tli lower walks and by-paths of diplo macy. rAw > like the rurie attempt of a country man t.. imitate the tricks of a juggler. Had be -° ' lones f common sense he might have held bis own; but bis clumsy attempts at sleight-of hand only made the old professed jugglers smile at his imitation and his failures. But Canton fell and the scene of action was moved to the Peibo. Thither ; Mr. Reed followed, and by the aid and under the protection of the English and French guns, he was enabled to proceed up the river. We do not ask what might have been expected of him there, as the representative of a close allv and a kinsman's pow er; we ask only what he might be expected to do as the agent of Ins own countryman. We had a rmht to speculate that the man whn was sent out bv the American people to watch this important business should look closely after American interests. We know that next to ourselves the Americans are interested in commerce with China. Looking ! a little ahead, and having regard to her increas ing population, her growth of cotton, and her con sumption of tea and silk, it is scarcely t<-o much to say that the American people are even more vitally interested in opening up this great region tn the in dustry and to the wants of the Anglo-Saxon race than even we home bred English are. The interests of the two nations were inseparable. We both had the "favored nation clause," and therefore the ut most that either got must he shared by the other. It might have been imagined that a man of common sense and "mother wit" would have taken a plain business view of the question, and would have been content to give the moral weigiit of his country's I influence to the cause of civilization. io the astonishment even of the Russian, who had not hoped for so lond a dupe, the American Minister was found to be America's most, intracta ble enemy. W hethcrhe had sura private crotchets of his own, or whether he thought—a common er ror with smatterers—that the ways of a diploma tist must necessarily he tortuous, he was always on the side of the Chinaman, and always against his own countrymen. He once, we are told, in no con fidential or diplomatic conversation, was told by an English official that his sentiments were more Chi nese than those of the Mandarins, and that he would be better placed at the Court of I'ekin than as .Minister for a civilized State: and his answer was an avowal that he thought very much as the Chinese thought upon many of the subjects under discussion. Meanwhile, when the English and French were demanding natural rights for all man kind, Mr. Reed begged a treaty for himself and his nation. That treaty is now before us. It consists of thirty articles, and is the exact measure of what America would have obtained if, even with the ad vantage of the English and French guns, her inter ests had been leit to the management of her own representative. .The first article of this document provides that, "if any other nation shall act unjustly or oppres sively, the I nited States will exert their good offi ces, on being informed of the case, to bring about an amicable arrangement of the question; not a very substantial stipulation, and nnlv remarkable as a commentary upon Mr. Reed's declared desire to avoid entangling alliances. The fifth article confers on the United States the right to send a Minister to Pt-kin, but under condition that he is not to stop there, or to have more than twenty per sons with hiin, or to come into the l'eiho in a ship of-war, or to stay when his business is done, or to come without having business to do. The four teenth article opens to American commerce the new ports of Sua tow and Tai wan. both of which were already in undisturbed exercise of foreign com merce. But this most unnecessary article, as we read the treaty, is clogged with the provision that any subject of the United States engaged in contra band trade shall be dealt with by the Chinese local authorities, without protection from the govern ment of the United States. When it is remembered that Mr. Reed was most careful to use terms which would include the impor tation of opium, in order, 83 it was suggested, to spite the British for their crusade against slavery— and as all the eminent American houses in r.0.. "■— ... - . ; ' V' IV be imagined " j'ni tl. treaty rights ol an American citizen would liave been in China under this treaty. Tais is the whole of the document, so far as any'new concessions are concerned. There is no provision for free transit through the country, no new ports, no provision for an amended tariff, nothing that would he of the least value to any class of merchants wishing to ex port from the harbors of America, or to import from the inner waters or the northern sea-coast of China. Having concluded this famous piece of diplomacy, Mr. Reed was not contented with his achievement. He was notsatislied to have made this wretched bar gain for his country; lie was most desirous that Lord Elgin should not make a better bargain for her and for civilization in general. The Chinese Commissioners had agreed by letter to all the English and French demands, the treaty had been drafted, and the hour had been named for the signature, when suddenly Mr. Reed and Count Putiatine sought solemn audience of Baron Gros, and represented to him that it was the height, of oppression to insist upon any resident Embassy at J'ekin; that the free transit through the country was a most useless and offensive demand; and that the additional ports could never be agreed to. We are told that these remonstrances were pressed so strongly upon Baron Gros that he, who had no spe cial interest in the commercial stipulations, would have given up the points had he not been influenced by a loyal regard for a unitvof the counsels of Eng land and France. We are further told that the two remonstrant powers even forged or believed the fa ble that the Emperor of China had sent down an edict positively forbidding the Mandarins to con cede these points. For some hours the whole of the substantial bene fits of this treaty were in peril—we are stating nothing which was not well known throughout the whole expedition—and the Americans were in sanely rejoicing at the apparent success of an in trigue that could be beneficial only to the Chinese and the Russians, would be indifferent to the French, but would be vitally injurious to the Eng lish and to the Americans. By great ability and by great firmness the threatened danger was avoided. Prompt counsel was taken, a countermining was sprung, and again t lie clumsy player was checked by a fold's mate. But, as wo understand, some privileges were given up which would have been very useful to the merchants of both countries— not because they would not have been conceded, and justly conceded, nor because the reasonably hostile influence of Russia was feared, but because it would not have been safe to dally longer with the opposition of Russia, while Russia could count upon the insensate assistance of America. This is as much of the story of the treaty of Tien sin as may be publicly known and publicly stated. The facts are freely talked of, and we believe there is no doubt of their correctness. We think they ought also to be known in America. This is not a question between the two countries. We are quite sure that the American people are as anxious to carry their drills upon the Yang-tse and to exchange them there for low-priced teas and silks as the merchants of London can be, and that thev would have been quite as indignant if the resnlt of recent | | events had been no better than Mr. Reed's silly j , treaty us we in England should have been. It is ! j only fair to let them know how badly they have j ( been served in this matter, and how unreasonably j the moral influence of their country has been used j ( against us anil against themselves. Throughout the j whole ot this latter scene 110 diplomatist ever made j a weaker figure than that made by the American re- j , presentative; he hasnot only caused us both much i peril, but he lias done us botli some harm; he has ' been in all things the tool of the Russian, whose op- | ( position was sensible enough and to be expected; I and he lias succeeded only in fixing upon the Chi nese mind an indeliible conviction that—"American J man only number two class Englishmen."

KKVINO, THE CHINESE MANDARIN, STILL ALIVE.— j The Paris Pay* has private advices from Shanghai to tlie Pith of August, according to which the man darin Keying was not sentenced to death, with the 1 privilege of committing suicide, as reported by the i correspondents of English journals. He was, like Yeh, degraded and condemned to ten years' confine ment in tlie fortress of Tho-ho. This, at his ad vanced age, will probably prove to be imprison ment for life. The imperial general Tsan-Kwo-Le-ang, who in : June last suffered a disastrous defeat at the hands of the Nankin rebels, likewise incurred the Empe ror's displeasure; but, as he is a great favorite with f the army, it was thought advisable to punish him by proxy. An effigy of the General having been procured, one hundred lashes were administered to it with becoming gravity. PRICE TWO CENTS THE CAPTURE OF THE SCHOONER I,YI) IA GIBBS. * [From the Chrateuton Mercury. 0ct. 20.] | Bv the Isabel intelligence has been received of I the circumstances attending the capture of the schooner Lydia Gibbs, formerly of this port, upon j the west coast of Africa, for alleged slave tra ' i ding. JI 'ilie schooner Lydia Gibbs, Captain Thomas Wat .l son, sailed from Cuba on a trading voyage to the 1 west coast of Africa, arriving at Wli vdah on the 22d j of May last, where the British war steamer Trident j was lying. Captain Watson and the commander of I the Trident had been school-fellows together, and i here met after many years of separation. The old i friendship was renewed, and for a few days a most intimate intercourse maintained between them. In the course of their communication, the snbject of j the slave trade was discussed; the action of the i British in disturbing the American merchantmen, by visits and search, was openly condemned by Cap j tain Watson, and as strongly maintained by the British officer. Nothing, however, openly trans j pired to interrupt the harnionv. Upon the 29tli of May, early in the morning, the British oilieer sent a message to his friend, Captain I Watson, with reference to a box of cigars, at the ssme time informing him that he was about to de j part upon a cruise. This notion, from subsequent I circumstances, was evidently a treacherous 1 use. I After the Trident had left, the Lydia Gibbs left ; Wliydah and proceeded upon her voyage. Upon ! the same day, however, the Trident captured her, ' the British officers hauling down the American | flag, which she carried,and substituting Ilie Brit ish in its place. Captain Watson was informed that his vessel was a prize, and his papers demanded. He refused to give them up, and succeeded in re 's tainiug them. The schooner was then searched for specie, which, had she been a slaver, the Briti.-h I well knew would be on board; but none was found. , The British, in revenge, stripped Captain Watson j and his crew of all their personal effects. The vos j sel was taken to A vuda and complained of before j the British authorities of Sierra Leone as a slayer. It was while awaiting the result of this action, against which he had firmly protested, that Captain Watson contracted the fever, of which he died, as we have noted elsewhere. It vys reported in the English newspapers that the papers of the Lydia Gibbs were tlirovir. *rer board. Such is not the fact. Captain Watson pre served them unharmed, although the British officers offered him liberally to produce them. Since his decease they have been safely forwarded to his co owners in Cuba, in whose possession they now arc*. The fate of Mr. R. C. Welling, a citizen of Charles ton, and chief mate of the Lydia Gibbs, and the crew, is uncertain—no definite intelligence respect ing them having been received. The proper steps will undoubtedly he taken to lay the matter before the government at Washing ton. A correspondent of the Charleston Courier says : "Among the Captain's papers was found the follow ing: 'I. Francis A. Close, commander of her Bri tanic Majesty's Navy and Commanding If. B. M. S. Trident, do hereby certify that the only object of searching the vessel is to ascertain whether she is not engaged in the slave trade under false colors. — Dated this 29th May, F. A. Close, Commanding her Ma'esty's ship.' "The certificate under the hands of Carlos.!. Sra. Nobr, J. T. Howe, Francisco Jose Mideiros, and Jos. Dawson, testifies to the death, by yellow fever, of Captain Thomas Watson on the fifteenth day of July, and that after'his decease, on examining his trunk was found 'the Register of the vessel. Arti j eles, the Chartering Parties, Roll and certificates belonging to the schooner.' The gentleman who was kind enough to take charge of these papers, called, on his way to Cuba, upon the Secretary of the British Commission at Sierra Leone, and was informed by him that the Lydia Gibbs had been con demned because she had no papers.* 9 ARMY MOVEMENTS IN NEW MEXICO. [ From the Santa Fe Cazette. Oct. 2.] On the 2flth ultimo Colonel Loring and Lieuten ant Enos, Mounted Rifles, arrived here; the former returned to his station. Fort Union, on the 30th ul timo, and the latter left on the 28th ultimo to join his company, now stationed at Cantonment Burg win. On the 27th of September Brevet Major J. L. Donaldson, Quartermaster's Department, ar rived here from the States. This officer will remain on duty, and be stationed in this city as Principal Quartermaster of the .Military Department of New Mexico, in place of Captain Easton, who left with General Garland about three weeks ago for the States. On the next day Major E. Backus, Third Infantry, in command of about two hundred Uni ted States recruits, arrived at this place from Fort i Leavenworth, after a march of about, six weeks. | The following officers belonging to different corps j serving in this military department arrived with his command: Majors Simonson and Ruff, of the | Mounted Rifles: Brevet Major Shepherd, Captain I Sykes, First Lieutenants Whistler and Jackson, I and Second Lieutenant Holt, of the Third Infantry; I also Captain Van Bokkelcn. Quartermaster's De | partment. Most of these officers left this place on | the Ist inst. in order to join their respective com panies and corps stationed in this department. On ! the 29th ultimo Major T. G. Rliett, Pay Depart | ment, arrived here from Fort Union, and on the 30th Major C. H. Fry, from Albuquerque. A de tachment of about 120 United States recruits, for the Mounted Rifles, arrived at Fort Union on the I 24th uit. They were assigned and distributed at ; that place to different companies of tin ir re giment. The following officers accompanied them : Brevet Capt. Granger, Lieutenants Jones and Ed so n. Captain John Pope, of the Artesian Well Expedi tion, is now in the city. His winter quarters will be, we understand, near Galisteo, and some thirty five miles from here. Reports have reached us that the Camanches are committing depredations near Hatch's r.anche. Measures have been taken by Colonel Bonne ville to inquire into the facts of the case, and to punish theui in ease they are molestine- the set tlements. I R K'A.Ai* "H. [ From the St. Joseph JnnvttTt'. J.,. The California and Salt Lake overland mail ar rived in this citv on the afternoon of Saturday, the 23d inst. Mr. W. A. Wallace, one of the editors of the Alia California, and Mr. F. C. Coleord, eatne through with the mail; the former from San Fran cisco, and the latter from Camp Flovd. Mr. Coleord informs us that lie left Camp Floyd, (Jen. Johnston's headquarters, the last of Septem ber. About 1,000 adobe houses had been erected and active preparations were making to go into winter quarters. The dust at Camp Floyd was from six to twelve inches deep, and from one hun dred to one hundred and fifty head of cattle per day were wandering off to tlie mountains and lost. everything was quiet and prosperous at Salt Lake City. The United States District Court would commence its session on the sth inst., Judge St. Clair presiding. A grand jury, composed exclu sively of wagon masters and old mountaineers, had been summoned. None of these were expected to show partiality to the Saints, as they were all violently opposed to them. The mail left Salt Lake City on the 2d of October. The first night out of the city a cold rain set in, which continued on through the night. The next day, the 3d inst., a terrible snow-storm blew up the mountains. The snow continued falling until the party arrived on the side of the Sweet Water. The Big Mountain was perfectly white, and the shrub bery all bent down with "snow. The nights were intensely cold and the mules had to be driven rap idly to keep from freezing. Between the moun tains and Sweet Water, ninety-five miles were made in twenty-four hours. Vasques' train was met between the Two Mountains. His train lost one hundred and fifty head of cattle by the snow storm. HubbeU's two trains of twenty-six wagons each, were met at ltockv Itidge. One hundred and seventeen head of cattle belonging to these trains, chilled and froze to death in one night, and in all' first and last, they lost one hundred and ninety head of cattle bv the snow-storms. Hockiday's first mulo mule supply train was met at Ash Hollow, progres sing stow I v. Judge fickles was overtaken and passed at Black Hills, returning to the States. Large herds of buffalo were seen at Cottonwood Springs. The mail ambulance had to be guarded through the night to keep the buffalo from running pell mell over both the carriages and mules. From South Platte in, large numbers of Cherry Creek gold seekers were met. Mr. Coleord had sent out some young men prospecting, from whom, at Lara mie, he received intelligence. They reported rath er unfavorably of the mines. They had only been able to make from SI to S5 per day. The prairies were all on fire, out about three days travel from this city. At night the scene is said io be beautiful beyond description. FROM SOUTHERN MEXICO By an arrival at New Orleans intelligence has been received from Tobasco, one of the outhe-n States of Mexico, lying upon the Gulf, to the 14th ot October. Gov.
