TELEGRAMS RECEIVED AT THE OFFICE OF "THE DAILY EXCHANGE," Further by the Overland Mail. Sr. Louis, NOV. B.—The following additional items are included in the advices by the Overland j California mail. The mail of the 16th of Septein j ber reached San Francisco before the mail via the Isthmus of the same date: 1 Oregon dates to the 22d September, mention a j rumor that two noted hostile Indian Chiefs had j been captured and shot. j A messenger had arrived at Shasta, with de ! spatches for the army, and it was thought that the I destination of the troops en route for Oregon would I be changed for Washington, as the forces now I there were fully able to keep the Indians in subjec tion without reinforcements. J The Utah correspondent of the St. Louis Republi can gives an account of the outrages committed on | the persons of Mrs. Walker and her daughter, nine years of age, by two Utah Indians at Spanish Fork. Governor Cumtnings had demanded the perpetra tors, which being refused, a requisition was then made on Gen. Johnston for a detachment of men, who proceeded to the scene of the outrage and ef fected the delivery of the culprits, who were sent to | Salt Lake. One Indian was unintentionally killed, , which may lead to further disturbance. A posse of r military was stationed nt Spanish Fork for the* pro- I tection of the inhabitants. From AYnsliiisgtoii. WASHINGTON, Nov. B.—General Walker's visit j here is not directly with the Government. It is in ! part to ascertain the extent of the proposed liritisli interference. He is satisfied that there will be no hindrance to lawful emigration to Nicaragua. He denies the truth of the statement that there has been a sale of bonds and transit, and hence that that part of the President's proclamation must have been founded on incorrect information. He further says that passengers leaving Mobile are expected to pay their own expenses and act on their own responsibility. The emigration is under the aus pices of the Southern Emigration Company, which has been in existence for six months,"and has branches in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia. There is no clashing of interest between it and the Canal Company. General Walker will probably leave for Mobile* to morrow, though it is not certain that he will go out with the first party to Nicaragua. The Weather at the Eastward.

ARREST OP A SUPPOSED INCENDIARY.—A man named Charles Miller was arrested at an early hour yesterday morning, on the charge of setting "fire to his own store, No. 590 West Baltimore street, about half-past ten o'clock on Sunday night. The fire was first discovered by officers Chambers and Hissey, who, in passing the store, noticed stnoke issuing from the windows and door. They immediately j gave the alarm, but finding no one in the house", I they bursted open the door and extinguished the I fire. Upon making an examination of the pre mises they discovered several boxes filled with shavings and paper and completely saturated with j camphene. They also found a lamp standing on j the floor, with which the tire had no doubt been kindled. From the fact of the door being securely S locked, the officers suspected the proprietor of the store of having set fire to it himself. Officers Gru ver, Hough and Bishop accordingly procured a warrant, and went in search of hiin. They pro ceeded to his residence on Light street near Hill, and found him in bed with his brother. They were both arrested and conveyed to the Western police j station, where they remained until yesterday mor ning, when they were both arraigned (the latter a witness,) before Fire Inspector Boyd. The officers, who made the arrest, and also those who discovered the fire testified to the particulars attending its discovery, and the testimony clearly indicating the guilt of "the accused, lie was held to bail in the sura of $5,000 to answer the charge before the Criminal Court. The store was occupied bv the accused as a hat and cap store. The loss upon the stock will amount to SSO. He has an insurance in the Fireman's office of this city for S6OO. MEETING OK THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. —An adjourned meeting of this Department was held last evening, at their room in the old City Hall, and in the ab sence of the regular presiding officer, John W. Davis, Eso., of the Watchman Fire Company, was called to the chair. John Morris, Esq., of the New Market, on the part of a committee appointed at a previous meet ing to submit to the Mayor the resolutions adopted by the Department relative to a re-organization of the Department, and expressive of their disappro bation of the ordinance providing therefor, passed by the late Council, reported that the committee had performed that duty, and that the Mayor had expressed his gratification that the Department had acted in the matter and expressed their views and wishes, as he desired to act in a manner which would, so far as possible, comport therewith. He had, however, in a conversation with the committee, sig nified his individual preference for a paid and steam fire engine department, and stated that he regard ed it as inevitable that it would, if not now, at least at a period not far distant, entirely supersede the volunteer system. He had not stated definitely what would be his action upon the bill now before him, but expressed his desire to see such a system adopted as would be attended with the least possi ble loss, by a change of apparatus, to the compa nies now in existence,while having in view the ren dering the department efficient. The report was adopted and the committee dis charged with the thanks of the Department, when the meeting adjourned.

Henolvcd, That one hundred dollars of the funds subscribed at the rooms of the Flour and Corn Ex change, be tendered to officer Cook. It was understood among the members that if officer Cook should deeline the acceptance of this testimonial of their appreciation of his faithfulness, that a committe should be appointed to have pre pared a medal of that value which should be pre sented to him. There has also been made in addi tion to the above a subscription of some S3OO to be presented to this officer, or appropriated to the purchase of some suitable testimonial. ROBBERY AND INCENDIARISM. Officer Rrooks, about eight o'clock on Sunday night, on Charles street, near Pleasant, was called upon by a lady named Smith, who resides at No. 90 Charles street, who informed him that some one had fired her house.

After several ineffectual attempts, he suc ceeded in extinguishing the fire, when he was in formed by Sirs. Smith that she suspected a colored boy in her employ named Lewis Smith, belonging to a Sirs. Miller. The oflicer procured a warrant and arrested the boy at the house of Mrs. Miller, and conveyed him before Justice 0 wings.

On Sunday morning a complaint was made to the Mayor that David Hawk and Richard Pryor. had broken in the door of Cole* k C'o.'s drinking house on Forrest street, near (Jay. and taken liquors and cigars from be- ! bind the bar. Hawk had been arrested, and on the evi dence, the Mayor fined him £2O and cost*, and in default 1 of payment committed him to jail. He issued a warrant i for the arrest of Pryor, and on Sunday, about noon. Capt. Mitchell arrested Pryor and brought him to the Middle district police station. Pryor remained in the main room of the station house, while information was conveyed to the Mayor of his arrest. Ilis Honor sent word that the magistrate lor the district should dispose of the case, and Justice Mearis was sent for. hut refused to go into an ex amination. preferring that the Mayor should act. lie held Pryor to bail, and yesterday morning Pryor answered at the Mayor's court. Benjamin T. Cliennowith, testified.—Ts a proprietor of the house; about eleven o'clock or a little later, Pryor, Hawk and others came in and called for drinks, which they got and Pryor paid for: they sat there a while and I told them to go out, as I wished to close; they left, but shortly returned and wanted to get in: I put out the light and they commenced kicking again; I put a spade under the door to assist in keeping it closed; I held my foot on the spade, but was afraid they would shoot through the door; I left the front and went out of the hack door, and when I got on Forrest street, met Pryor coming out with a bottle of whiskey, and Hawk had cigars; when the of ficers came I told them I wanted them to take the men away; if the}' would go away I would not make a charge against them; they left, but again returned, and when they came in I asked Hawk to pay for the cigars, hut he refused, and I called on the officers to arrest him. which they did; did not see Pryor kicking the door, hut heard his voice outside; have since learned that the door was bursted by Pryor being thrown against it; Pryor did not threaten to shoot me; Pryor said he paid the boy for the liquor he got. Wheat, testified. —Was with Pryor and Ilawk; Hawk caught Pryor by the arm and threw him against the door and it flew open; saw Pryor give aquarter for the whiskey. Several police officers testified that they were called on by Chenowith to take the parties away, but they did not know anything about the affair. The Mayor fined Pryor for drunkenness, and then asked the officers where the other men were who were with Pryor. Theofficers said that they were not arrested. The Mayor asked why they were not. The officers said they had not been requested to arrest them, that Hawk was the only one tlicy were told to arrest. His Honor said that he had told them to arrest all persons who violate the law, and they were not to wait for citizens to tell them to ar rest any one, hut when the law was violated they must arrest the violators. He wanted to see no more of such action on the part of the police. The lower part of the door of Chenowith's house has a large number of indentations, made apparently by boots.

LA W INTELLIGENCE. ARRAIGNMENT OF MARION CROrPS AND I'EI'ER CORRIE, THE MURDERERS OF POLICE OFFICER ROBERT M. RIGDON. THE PLEA OF NOT GUILTY ENTERED BY BOTH THE ACCUSED. CRIMTXAL COURT.—Hon. Henry Stamp. Judge. Mil ton Whitney. Esq., State's Attorney, prosecuting. Long before the meeting of the Court yesterday morn ing, the streets around the Court House and the avenues leading to it. were densely filled by all manner of people, drawn there, from the supposition that the murderers of police officer Rigdon would he brought from the jail and arraigned before the Court, The Court room also was crowded to excess, and every available spot, from which a view ofthe prisoner's box could he seen, was occupied fcy excited spectators anxious to look upon the outlaws, charged with this most terrible crime. A little after ten o'clock, the prisoners heavily ironed, in charge ofthe Warden and Deputy Wardens of'the jail' arrived at the Court House. As soon as they alighted from the van. the crowd pressed so eagerly around them, that it was with difficulty the officers forced a passage to the Court room. This great show of excitement upon the part of the people doubtless cast fear into the hearts of the prisoners, their appearance showing them to be in a great state of alarm. They were, however, conveyed safely through the Court room and placed in the lock-up. A few minutes after 11 o'clock Judge Stump entered the Court room and took his seat. Shortly after the Brand Jury had retired, Frederick Pinckney. Esq., Deputy State's Attorney, entered the Court room, with the indictment against the prisoners, and handed it to Mr. Whitney, who afterwards gave it to the Clerk of the Court. The Clerk, rising, then said, "Mr. Warden, place Marion C'ropps and Peter Corrie at the bar." Upon the announcement of tlie names of the pris oners a general movement was made by the dense mass in the Court room, and considerable loud talking was indulged in, but soon checked by the bailiffs. Tlie accused were then seated in the prisoners' box.— Cropps is about five feet ten in lies high vrellbuiltand mus cular. He has very light hair, which is cropped close all around the head: he has high cheek bones, an ugly mouth and large gray eyes, and altogether a very unprepossess ing countenance. He was dressed in a dark brown cloth sack coat, brown vest and light colored cloth pants. He showed no emotion during the reading of the indictment, but wore rather a hardened and reckless look, as he kept his eyes upon the Clerk. Corrie is not so tall as Cropps. hut rather stouter in build. He has dark brown hair, dark eyes and a counte nance, if any thing, more unprepossessing than that of Cropps. He had a cut across the bridge of his nose, and also, on the lip, which were inflicted by officer Cook, upon the night when Corrie was arrested, his left eye is also much bruised and blood shotten, from the same cause. Corrie was dressed in a black cloth coat, brown vest and dark clotli pants; he seemed to feel the awful condition in which lie was placed, and during the read ing of the indictment, the muscles of the mouth were continually at work, showing the dreadful agony of Lis feelings. After a few moments, the Clerk arose, and looking to wards the prisoners said: •' Marion Cropps, stand up, hold up your right hand; Peter Corrie, stand up. hold up your right hand." The prisoners did as directed. The Clerk then proceeded to read the indictment which charges that Marion Cropps, Peter Corrie and a white man, to the jurors unknown, not having the fear of God before their eyes, but being moved and seduced by the in stigation of the devil, on the stli day of November, in the year of our Lord one thousand, eight hundred and fifty eight, did shoot with a pistol Robert M. Rigdon, in the peace of God and of the State, in and upon the left side of the chest, inflicting mortal wounds of which said mortal wounds the said Robert M Rigdon instantly died. The indictment alleges the pistol to have contained four bul lets. aud recites that each cf them penetrated the body, each one inflicting a mortal wound of the length of half an inch aud of the depth of three inches. The indictment also charges Corrie and the 'white man to the jurors unknown," with being accessories, aud con cludes as follows: "And that the said Peter Corrie and the said white man to thejurors aforesaid unknown, at the time of committing of the said felony and murder as aforesaid, then and there feloniously, wilfully and of their malice aforethought were present, aiding, abetting and assisting the said Marion Cropps, the said felony and murder in manner and form aforesaid to do and commit, and so the jurors afore said, upon theiroatli aforesaid, do say that the said Marion Cropps, the said Peter Corrie, and the said white man to the jurors aforesaid unknown, him the said Robert M. Rigdon, in manner and form aforesaid, feloniously, wil fully and of their malice aforethought, did kill and mur der, contrary to the form of the Act of Assembly in such case made aud provided, and against the peace, govern ment and dignity of the State." After the reading of the indictment the Clerk said. "Ma rion Cropps, what say you, are you guilty or not guilty." Cropps.—"Not guilty." Clerk.—"Peter Corrie, what say you, are you guilty or not guilty." Corrie.—"Not guilty." To the usual questions by the Clerk, if they were ready for trial, Corrie replied that he was not ready. Clerk.—"Have you any counsel ? " Corrie.—"l have none." Cropps.—"l have no counsel, I don't want to be tried in this Court." Mr. Whitney.—"May it please the Court, the prisoners state that they have no counsel, will the Court appoint Counsel?" Judge Stump.—"Mr. Warden, ask them what counsel they want." Corrie.—"My friends are going to get counsel for me; I want to remove my trial." Cropps.—"My friends want to emply counsel, and I want my case removed." Mr. Whitney.—"l am ready to go on with the case now; I have already collected the evidence on the part of the part of the State. The prisoners, I understand, desire to remove their case; that they have a right to do by the Constitution." Judge Stump.—"Ask them, Mr. Warden, if they both want to remove their cases." Warden.—"Yes, sir, they both wapt to remove their cases to the county." Mr. Whitney.—"Let them come forward then and make the affidavits." The prisoners were then conducted to the Clerk's desk, and eacli made the necessary affidavit. The following is a copy of the one made by Corrie; the one made by Cropps is precisely similar, with the exception of the name.— The witnesses # were recognized to appear at Baltimore County Court. State of Maryland 1 vs. | INDICTMENT TOR MURDER. Peter Corrie. ) The prisoner in this case suggests to the Court here, that he believes he cannot have a fair anil impartial trial in this Court, and prays the Court to order and direct the removal of tlie record of proceedings in his case to the Court of some adjoining county for trial. (Signed) PETEE CORRIE. On this Bth day of November. A. 11. 1858, appears in open Court here, Peter Corrie the prisoner in the above case and makes oath on the Holy Evangely of Almighty God .that the matters and things contained in the above suggestion are true to the best of his knowledge and belief. (Signed) TIIOS. H. GARDNER, Clerk Criminal Court of Baltimore. The prisoners were then taken to the lock-up. and after wards, under a detachment of city police and the wardens of the jail, re-conveyed to prison. Mr. Whitney then remarked to the Court that as these cases were disposed of. and as the jail was now full of per sons, charged with minor offences, he proposed to com mence tomorrow (Tuesday) and try theui as expeditiously as possible. The following parties were then brought out: Garrett Dalton. charged with the larceny of a gold ring, gold pencil and a woolen shawl, the whole valued at sll, the property of Ann Reed, was arraigned and pleaded "not guilty." Johanna Brantmuller, indicted for the murder, on the 22d of October, of her son, Michael Brantmuller, by strik ing the right side of his head against an iron stove, in flicting a wound of the length of one inch and of the depth of two inches, front which he instantly died. After the Clerk had read the indictment, he put the usual question, "what say you, guilty or not guilty ? " The woman said nothing; the Warden then remarked that she did not understand the English language. Mr. Myers, the interpreter of the Court, was then di rected to translate the indictment in her hearing, and ask her if she was guilty. After translating the indictment, Mr. Myers asked her if she was guilty or not guilty. She replied, "she did do it. but was compelled to do it." Judge Stump.—"Ask her how she was compelled to do it." Mr. Myers —"She says .Tesus Christ told her to do it to save her husband." The plea of "not guilty" was ordered by Mr. Whitney to be entered. Mr. Whitney then stated to the Court that his attention had been called by the Grand Jury to this case; they are all of opinion that the woman is now and was at the time she committed the deed a confirmed maniac. He intended to take her case up to morrow (Tuesday) morning, have a jury sworn and state the facts of the case to them. The physician of the jail will also be present, who will testify to her condition. The jury can then find their verdict, and she can be sent to some hospital or asylum,- where she will be properly taken care of. William Dix, charged with the larceny, on the 23d of October last, of a gold watch, valued at $25, the property of Francis Bowen, was arraigned and pleaded "not guilty." John Beemiderfer. charged with stealing on tho find of November, about S3O from Wm. 11. Myers, was arraign ed and pleaded -not guilty."

ARRIVAL OF MORMON ELDERS FROM UTAH. —The first company of Mormon Elders that have loft Utah since the difficulties in that Territory have just arrived in the States. One of the Elders ad dresses a letter to a frontier paper, from which the following items are taken: "The company with which I traveled consisted of twenty-nine persons, nine vehicles and twenty-four animals. At the time of our leaving Salt Lake city on the 15th of September last, all was peace and quiet in Utah. The wheat crops had been har vested, and peaches and other fruit were in abun dance. The merchant trains had principally all arrived; goods very high and money plenty. I was informed by the mail driver that passed us, that ex-Chief Justice Eckles had left the scene of his great exploits, and was returning to his home in the States, having received a gentle hint that his services as Chief Justice of Utah could very well be dispensed with by the citizens of that territory. Quite a number"of the citizens of Utah have been employed by the officers of the army at < amps Scott and Floyd in the erections of barracks and other preparations for their winter campaign. The health of cx-Gov. Young was good. He attends to his business as usual, and enjoys the full confi dence of the residents of that Territory. Gov. Cumming is highly respected as the chief magis trate, and has proved himself thus far to be an honorable and high-minded man. Judge St. Clair and Indian Agent Dodge had arrived a few days previous to our leaving. We met Col. Morris' company of infantry on tlie "Big Mountain," en route for Camp Floyd, in Cedar Valley. We also met a Danish company of Mormons at the head of Lcho Canon, that had emigrated from Denmark this season; also Judge Appleby's company, on the - Y'' of September, at the Three Crossings of Sweet Well—all well. We met thirteen hundred wagons, belonging to different individuals, freighted with provisions and clothing for tlie army, each drawn by eight yoke of cattle, averaging "sixty hundred weight to tho wagon. The weather was unusually fine for the season of tlie year. We encountered but three slight storms of rain and snow, although previous to our arriving at the Platte bridge they had a very severe snow storm on the 2d of Septem ber at that place, which covered the ground ten inches deep, hut shortly disappeared. "\\ hen within 160 miles of Florence, we met sev eral companies with wagons loaded with provisions, on their way to the new gold mines, which are said to have been discovered on Cherry Creek, 160 miles south ot Fort Laramie. We passed many herds of buffalo, some ot which we secured for present use. Deer, hares and prairie chickens were very numer ous. We passed many camps of Sioux Indians and Cheyenne Indians, all of whom were friendly. They had burned the prairies for several hundred miles, which had rendered feed scarce in soine places; our animals, however, did well, and we performed tlie journey in 33 traveling days, which, at this season of the year, is considered a quick trip."

In 1847, ten years ago, under the government of Louis Phillippe, they amounted only to four hundred and sixty-eight millions. The increase has been five hundred and ninety-seven millions, or one hundred and twenty-eight per cent. The increase in popula tion has been small. The advance made by France is perfectly astonishing. Her foreign trade has quadrupled in the ten years of Napoleon's reign. During the seventeen years of Louis Phillippe's reign it only trebled. French commerce, which a few years ago was far behind ours, now considera bly exceeds it in value. Our foreign imports and exports in 1857, were only eight hundred and twenty-three millions of dollars. This French pre cedence of us, after we had long ranked next to Great Britain in trade, is not very flattering to our national pride. Her commerce, however, is carried on largely in foreign ships. The tonnage of the United States is three times larger than hers. MEXICO. —The Holetin Oficial, of the 16th, says that Vidaurri has resigned the command in chief of the northern force, in favor of Col. Zaragosa, who had begun an active reorganization of the forces, and had already equipped a force of more than two thousand men. A forced loan and voluntary con tribution had been commenced at Monterey, by which it was thought that ample means would be raised to make a new effort against Miramon. The Holetin says that Vidaurri's resignation was caused by treason in his own camp, his guns having been spiked previous to the recent battle, to which his defeat is attributed. The reactionists were committing depredations, and burning haciendas. In the battle with Miramon the Liberals lost thir ty-live pieces of artillery, some fifty or sixty wag ons, and had some 1,500 men taken prisoners, and 400 killed. At last accounts Blanco and other Generals were threatening San Luis, aud a battle was anticipated there soon. ANOTHER ATLANTIC CABLE. —The most important intelligence received by the steamer Circassian, which arrived at St. John's, Newfoundland, on Saturday—making the voyage from Galway in ten days, having left on the 26th—is that preparations were on foot for laying anr.ther Atlantic Cable.— Indeed, the British steamer Gorgon had arrived at Liverpool, from Fayal, having been employed in taking soundings. "It seems that, as indeetl was expected from the first, the electrical communica tion cannot be relied upon, from shore to shore, for a distance so great as, say 2,000 miles, between Newfoundland and Ireland. It would appear that the present purpose is to run the Cable from Trini ty Bay to Fayal, and thence to the English Channel, (Southampton probably being the terminus,) anil thus dividing the continuity. Of course the laying of this Cable, or any other, cannot be proceeded with until next year.— Philadelphia Press. The Boston Herald says that the member elect to the Legislature from the district of Pembroke and Marshfield. Peter Salmond, Esq., is a straight whig, and probably tlie only living member in that party in the House of Representatives. He was under stood to be pledged against the re-election of Henry Wilson to the United States Senate. The Mormons of New York, Brooklyn and Wil liamsburg, held a jubilee in the last named place on Tuesday evening last. Songs, recitations, instru mental music, Ac., Ac., volunteered by difl'erent persons, constituted the exercises. The splendid apartment in the Palace of the Lux embourg, at Paris, known as the Chamhre. a Coueh er de Marie de Medicis, is about to be restored. The superb wood-carving of the frames, panels, Ac., has become worm-eaten, and the restoration will require great care and nicety. The decay of the wood-work would, of course, involve the loss event ually of the beautiful arabesques and decorative paintings of the period, which cover the walls and ceilings of this sumptuous so-called bed-chamber. These paintings were executed by Rubens, Philip de Champagne, and Nicholas Poussin. CARROLL COUNTY. —Two farms and a wood lot, in "Westminster, belonging to the late J no. Reese, situ ated near town, were sold last week at public sale, by Messrs. Jacob G. Reese and Francis W. Barnes, trustees, the first containing 205 acres to Simon J. Grammer, for $47.50 per acre, and the second to David Leister, containing 144 acres, at $17.95 per acre. The wood lot, containing 19 acres, was pur chased by Mr. Dixon, of Frederick county, at 520.02 per acre. RESIGNATION AND APPOINTMENT.— DanieI McClure, the present Secretary of State of Indiana, and who was re-elected latelv, has been appointed Paymaster in the army, with the rank of Major, and a salary of about $3,000 per year. He has consequently re signed his State office, and Gov. Willard has ap pointed C. L. Dunham to fill the vacancy. James Hope, of Alleghany County, Pa., having been convicted of libel on a young lady, hung him self to a tree, near his residence. He was about 50 years of age, and the father of twelve children. FROM THE KOOKY MOUNTAINS. ( Correspondence of the St. bonis Rqniblican. ] r would chronicle the arrival last night at the port of Sioux City, ofthe Mackinaw boat, Captain Frost, direct from the Koekv Mountains. Her papers from Fort Benton boar date of Sep tember 15th, at which time all was quiet at that point; of the Biackfeet Indians, the Gros Ventre tribe having received their annuities at the mouth of Milk River, the l'iegans at the Judith, and the Bloods being daily expected to arrive at the Fort. The Government goods have been delivered in bet ter condition this year thaataßual. The Fort had received a visit during the first of September from .Major Owens, of Fort Owens, W. T.. Indian Agent for the Flatheads, and Fathers Gongiatio "and Horcken. from the Mission of St. Ignatius, among the Fend Oreille Indians. Major Owens had a narrow escape front Wallavvalla during the late Indian disturbances in Washington, and reports the tribes eastward of that point to be unset tled and not reliable. Honor Congiatio is the Superior General of the Missions of Oregon and Washington, and crossed the mountains to deter mine the feasibility of establishing a mission among the Biackfeet Indians of Nebraska. The good fathers expressed themselves greatly pleased with the change .which has come over the Biackfeet of late years, and declared their intention to establish a new mission next spring on Sun llivcr, fifty miles west o( Fort Benton. It is at this spot, on account of its fertility, that Col. Vaughn has decided to locate the farm guaranteed by United States treaty to the Biackfeet, and a new town is already laid out by the name of "Atkinson." This will b"e an im portant depot on the wagon road from the Columbia to St. i'aul, now under survey by Lieut. Mullan, as here the road merges from the mountain region into the Missouri Prairie, and settlers from the Fur Company's posts being already attracted to the place, corner lots now command a premium. At the various Forts on the river below, the In dians were quiet, at Fort Clark Big Head, the greatest chief of the Sioux, being found on friendly visit to their old enemies, the Bees, with whom thev have just concluded a peace. At Fort Ran dall, the seasonable return of the United States troops has increased the garrison to six companies, the presence of which has a most salutary effect upon the Indians. MESSAGE OFTHE GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA. Ilio Savannah Republican of Thursday contains the annual message of Gov. Brown. The Governor discourses at length the banking affairs ofthe State. He repudiates tho conduct of the banks during the pressure, and charges them with having broken the promises which induced the passage of the act of 1857 and preserved their charters, and also with falsehood as to the necessity for the passage of the act. He recommends a complete reformation of the banking system, and if that cannot he ett'ected, its entire abolition and tho use of gold and silver alone. He also recommends the passage of a law prohibiting the circulation of notes of a small de nomination, and the establishment for the State of a system similar to the U. S. sub-treasury system. He speaks in high terms ofthe administration of John W. Lewis as superintendent of the Western Atlantic Railroad. The debt ofthe State is $2,300,- 500 payable at different times during tlie next 20 years,and subject by legislation to be increased $900,- 000 on account of subscription for Atlantic and Gulf Ilalroad stock. For the latter sum tlie State's bonds have been issued. $289,500 of this amount is payable at the option of tho State, payment not demandablc till 1863 and 1868. The net earnings of the Western and Atlantic Railroad are already pledged for the payment of a large portion of this debt. He therefore recommends the passage of an act setting apart $200,000 per annum of the net earnings of the road, to be applied in payment and purchase of the public debt. He further recom mends that a sum as large as the entire amount of the public debt be set apart as a permanent common school fund for Georgia, to be increased as far as the public debt is diminished, and that the faith of the State be solemnly pledged that no part of this sum shall ever be applied to, or appropriated for,any other purpose than that of education, the act to make it the duty of the Governor eacli year as soon as he shall have taken up the $200,000 of tlie State's bonds, to issue 5'200,000 of new bonds, payable, at some distant period to bo fixed by the Legislature, to the Secretary of State as trustee of the common school fund ofthe State, with semi-an nual interest at 6 per cent, per annum, lie also proposes a plan for the education of tlie teachers by the colleges and the military institute. The At lantic and Gull Railroad is progressing with re markable rapidity. The Governor favors the ex tension of State aid to railroads. The State asylums are flourishing, and the attention of the Legislature is called to the Penal Code and to the military sys tem of the State. NATIVES OF THE GOLD COAST—THE NE GROES OF AFRICA. The natives stand in ignominious contrast to the , overpowering wealth of the scenes in which they live; beneath the blaze of the fierce tropical sun. and through forests in which the very trees are gor- < geously clothed with orchids heaped about in bril- i liant iestoons. He bears on his head an earthen i vessel of palm oil, or carries two or three quills of gold dust, the result of his own industry in washing < the sands after the rains. His sole article of cloth" ' ing is a Manchester remal, or length of checkered < cotton, girded round his loins. liut he knows the ] value of his own merchandise, and of that for which i ] he intends to exchange it. He is a bird by no 1 means to be caught with chaff. He will not change ' his palm oil for a bunch of feathers, nor his gold lor i a string of beads; neither does he affect any article : of European clothing, nor hanker after any produce f of European civilization. He wants "rum—the ' strong, coarse American rum—and he knows to a ] spoonful how much he ought to get ofit. He wants < from time to time a new remal, also a cloth or blan- I ket to throw over his shoulders on state occasions, i and a musket to make a row with and fire off when he keeps custom. But ho wants no food, because the maize springs up for him almost without culti- i vation, and his women pound it between two stones, and add water to make a paste which he calls kan kee, and on this he gorges" himselfwith great relish. Sometimes his soul lusteth for meat, and then the black snails of the forest, as big as a fist, furnish him with a soup of which palm oil is also an essen tial ingredient. The provident house-wife threads these snails on a bit of grass and dries them in the sun, thus saving her lord and master from the toil of putting out his hand to take them. The long, black haired monkey also provides him with a bounteous repast. Pit}' the sorrows of a European traveling ! through the bush and partaking of the hospitality (he ! will have to pay handsomely for it) of a native, when, | as a delicacy reserved for him, there is fished up out | of the big pot of soup a black head with the lips ■ drawn back, and the white teeth grinning, and such a painful resemblance of the faces around him that for a moment he wonders which of the younger members of the family has been sacrificed to the ex igencies of the occasion. But he is reassured, and discovers that he is not eating man, but monkey. The natives of the Gold Goast has no desire to buy a house, nor to build a house, nor to live in a house. He does not wish to add field to field, or to make a name in the land. His chief and only desire in life seems to be to eat when he is hungry, to drink whenever he can, and to sleep in the interim. He has no anxiety for "himself and certainly none for his offspring, who have neither to be educated nor clothed; nor has he any misgiving about their future prospects. They run about in the bush if he lives inland, or he turns them into the sea if he lives on the coast. You may watch them in any number and of all ages, from two to twelve, diving and ducking under the waves, waiting for a big one: and then, on the crest of it, you see the little shining black bodies tossed over and over and round and round till, screaming with pleasure, they are washed up on the sand, like a tangle of black seaweed. Then slowly, and with much noise, they unravel themselves and crawl back to the water, aud continue this sport the whole day long, with the exception of the time occupied in consuming huge lumps of kankec, brought to them by the mothers. The paternal domain is, for the most part, a circular hut, under the mud-floor of which the ancestors of the family have been buried for many generations.— Diekens' Household Words. A SWINDLING OPERATION. A few days since, the State Department, at Wash ington, announced that it had reason to apprehend the existence of an attempted fraud, originating in England, and practiced upon the citizens of this country. The Louisville Journal has been put in possession of a little evidence on this subject, by Samuel Lawrence, of that city : This gentleman received a letter, dated "Char ing Cross Office, Trafalgar Square, London, Bth August, 1858," and signed "John Michelson." The writer desired to communicate with Mr. L. in relation to a very considerable property now lying in abeyance in the English Court of Chancery, and awaiting a claimant; ho professed to be a court agent, and to have traced back family records through many generations until he is convinced that Mr. L. is the legal claimant to the estate, valued at about $25,000. This generous information is ac companied with a request to send him $25, as to confirm and validate the right, it will be necessary to obtain copies of certain old wills and documents now locked up in the archives of the Court. The cunning rogue particularly desires to have the Christian name of Grandfather Lawrence, and his mother's maiden name, though he already knows them, but wants the written testiraonv of the heir apparent. The whole tone of the letter is busi ness-like and calculated to deceive, but Mr. Law rence did not fall into the trap. On the contrary, he has discovered that the letter is a mere circular, copies of which have been sent to other gentlemen of our State, with the mere change of names. The manner in which John Michelson has ob tained the names of resident Kentuckians upon whom to attempt his operations, has been the pos session of an old Blue Book, or Post Ollice Regis ter. Mr. Lawrence was for many years postmas ter at Mortonsville, Woodford county, where the letter was addressed, though he had removed thence to Louisville. The other c >pies of the circular, as far as he is aware, have been sent to persons who held similar official positions. LARGE PILE OF COUNTERFEIT MONEY. —On Sunday last, say the Wheeling papers, while some boys were wandering about over Wheeling Hill, they chanced upon a large roll of counterfeit bank bills, concealed in a hollow tree. There were several s2o's altered from the genuine $2 plate, and pur porting to be on the Chillicothe Branch. These notes are very well done, and calculated to deceive. There is a very large number of sl's on the Bank of Kentucky, Hopkensville, miserably executed. The paper is stiff, the work done in electrotype of the worst possible kind, and the printing very pale. Several hundred dollars are in ss's, a mean-looking imitation of the Bank of Louisville notes, and pur porting to be the issue of that institution. The remainder of the lot is in slo's of the Bank of Kentucky, Louisville and Paducha Branches. The whole batch, with the exception of the raised s2's [ on the State Bank of Ohio, is probably the most miserable attempt to deceive that was ever got up | in this tine in this or any other community. MATERIAL AID FOR MEXICO. —We learn that Dr. E. S. Billing, who hat been for some weeks in this country as the agent of Gen. Alvarez, making ar rangeaients for sending material aid to the consti tutionalists in Mexico, leaves here to-day in the steamer for Aspinwall, on his return to Acapulco. He has been quite successful in his operations, and arrangements have been made with Mr. James R. Morgan, of this city, under which General Alvarez will soon receive a large supply of Minnie rilles, muskets, powder, and lead, and other little arrange ments of an effective character. With these. Gen eral Alvarez calculates to be in the city of Mexico in January next, and to checkmate liisold anta gonist, Santa Anna, in his new plans for plunder ing the republic.— New York Herald, No v. (1. While the steamship Calhoun was lying at Apa lachicola on the 30th, a child of a Mrs. Hazard, of Mobile, accidentally fell overboard, and three or four gentlemen sprang overboard for the purpose of rescuing the child, in which they succeeded, but unfortunately, one of them, Mr. Thomas Baltzell, civil engineer, a resident of Pensacola, was drown ed, notwithstanding he was reported an expert swimmer. Life preservers, chairs, etc., were thrown overboard to him, but he sunk almost im mediately. THE AMERICANIZATION OF CANADA AND THE IHUTISH PROVINCES. (From the London Herald, Oct. is.) The modern project of uniting all the Hritigh I North American Territories under a single federal ' government, so as to create a counterpoise to the growing ascendancy of the United States, is excit ing intense interest among Canadian politicians. Federalism, combining the principle of local inde pendence with that of central authority, seems ad mirably adapted to vast continents destined to re ceive immense populations. It prevents the exis tence of international jealousies, which experience shows have always grown up where separate king doms have been established in contiguity to each othef, leading to wars which have 'retarded the civilization of Europe and loaded it with debts. Under federalism all the parts obey the whole, and the whole is bound to protect all the parts. I Each State has its own local Legislature within its j own boundary, and is a member of the Congress which binds the whole confederation. When an ; outlying territory advances in population, it is not subdued as a conquest, hut admitted within the pale ot the federation. Thus a political fraternity is re- j cognized, which prevents all unworthy motives to | cupidity or ambition. This is one o'f the causes ! of the rapid growth of the United States. Had the constitution of the original thirteen States been exclusive, new populations would never have ' massed themselves around their borders, fearing I to be enslaved or annexed when they became wealthy; hut no such fears were entertained, in dustry being certain of its reward, and the small capitalist and laborer assured that the land which they had reclaimed would in due time be erected into an independent State, and form a co-ordinate and coequal part of the common republic. In some such condition now is the North American territo ry, which contains one-ninth of the whole area of the globe, computed at 37,000,000 square miles. Of this total, Canada measures 400,000 square miles; ; New Brunswick, 28,000; Nova Scotia 10,000; J nnee Edward's Island, 2,000; and Newfoundland, A T"' n 480,000 square miles. From the Atlantic to the Pacific are 4,000,000 square miles of territory. Europe only contains 3,708,000, or -02,000 miles less. The great province of Cana da alone is equal in size to Great Britain, France I russia; and the maritime provinces of British Aorth America cover BG,OOO square miles of terri tory. tor the future settlement of this immense country statesmanship is now called upon to provide, and Sir Rulwer Lytton has commenced the gigan tic task by founding British Columbia, either to re i.. ;n a separate kingdom or form an integral part oi a mighty confederation. The more enterprising of the Canadian mer chants are now earnestly considering howthev mav best utilize the Northwest Territory, and as a com mencement the Northwest Transportation Compa ny has been formed. The first improvement to be effected is the general communication between Red river and Lake Superior, by facilitating the tran sit over the portages. If the company slumber over its duties, their claims arc forfeited by the terms of the charter, so that no obstructive monopoly has been created, and others will be allowed to super sede those who have tailed. This precaution shows that the Legislature are fully intent on open ing the passage, and its completion can only be a work of time. The benefit to be derived from its execution is now fully appreciated. The Cana dians are asking themselves. "Can we not have a West as valuable to us as Illinois has proved to have been to New \ ork?" This question they answer in the affirmative, insist ing that the Red river, the Swan, the Assin boine, and the Saskatchewan have prairies on their banks as fertile as any on the Mississippi and Mis souri. Moreover, their energies have been quick ened by the spirited move of Sir Bulwer Lyt ton in founding the colony of Now Columbia, the terminus on the Pacific of the grand railway which ought to commence at Halifax and run to "Quebec, thence crossing over the whole British territory to Vancouver. This enterprise, at least that portion of it connecting Halifax and Quebec, was mooted in Parliament by the present Duke of Newcastle in 1848, and he pointed out the advantage of avoiding the circuitous route from England to Quebec bv the St. Lawrence and the dangerous coast of Cape"Bre ton. Lord Grey also praised the plan, and Lord Durham remarked, that "if for great political ob jects it should ever become necessary or advisable to unite all the British provinces under one legisla tive government, then there will he found on this side of the Atlantic one powerful BritishJßtate, which, supported by the imperial power W the mother country, may bid defiance to all the United States ot America." Various plans are now afloat for reaching the East, as by the Isthmus of Suez, ! the Panama Canal and the' Red Sea route to Kurra chee. On their merits or demerits we have not j now space to enter; but for speed a line from Hali fax to Vancouver appears the most desirable, and j we should he placed in rapid contact with China 1 and India, Corea and Japan. In this view the value of Canada is incalculable. A MODERN SAINT'S TRAGEDY. —A private letter ' communicated to the Evening Pout, has the follow- 1 ing curious story of the distribution of the relics of an Austrian Archduchess: "1 he body ot the Saxon Princess Margaret, (re cently deceased,) wife of the Archduke Charles, was laid upon a block and chopped in pieces, in order to send different parts of the body to various parts of the country. The chopping-up process took place in the Chapel of the Castle, in the presence of the dead woman's husband. Extended upon a red draped block lay the naked white corpse, surround ed by priests chanting in Latin, youths swinging cen sors and a number of men armed with choppers, | saws, and other instruments. First, the heart was I cut out ot the body, inclosed in a golden case, and ' placed in an urn. It was then sent to Rome, to be | consecrated by the Pope, after which it was sent to the Loretto Chapel, and thence returned to Vien na. But it was not to rest here. Ten cities claimed j the honor of being Homer's birthplace, and six Aus trian bishoprics claimed the privilege of possessing all, or a part of the sainted Margaret's bodv. The Bishop of Prague would be content with the arms, the Bishop of Saizburg wished to obtain the , head and shoulders, while the Bishop of Lintz I anxiou-ly desired to possess the two middle fingers. The Vienna consistory was obliged to decide between the claimants, and the heart was at length for warded to the Common Council of Insbruck, in Tyrol, accompanied by two autograph letters of the Archduke Charles—one of which was directed to the Chief of the Jesuits—in which the hope was ex pressed that 'Tyrol, the always faithful,' would 'tor all time cherish the memory of the Arch duchess, who was a saint upon earth.' "Had the heart alone been separated from the body, the chopping-up process would soon have been finished; but the church demanded Hence the Archduke Charles directed the cutting open of his wife's abdomen—which was done. The; intestines were taken out, placed in copper, silver i and golden capsules, ami sent with an autograph letter to the Cathedral of St. Stephen, where tlie said intestines were first exhibited upon the altar, and then buried beneath the altar. Hereupon the two middle fingers were severed from the body, and sent with another autograph letter to Dresden. All that remained of the Archduchess was then wrapped in red velvet, and laid In state on a catafalque; and ultimately the mutilated corpse was placed in a coffin and deposited in the imperial tomb." NIAGARA FALLS.— Constant change, the law of na ture, reigns, too, at Niagara. Years ago, our readers will remember, Table Rock yielded to Time, and successive portions of it have fallen. On a visit to the Falls, a day or two since, we observed that another change has occurred, meriting at least \ a passing notice. Every sight-seer must recollect j the path which, commencing at the brink of the ra- , vine on the Canada side, almost opposite Prospect House, leads beneath Table Rock, and which those who desired to go "under the sheet of falling water" used to traverse in their water-proof habiliments. — It led to Termination Point, as aspotalong distance under the cataract was called, and the adventurer who dared air and flood to reach it, blinded by spray, deafened by the terrible roar which the beating of millions of tons of water on the rocks below produces, used to receive a certificate of his having accomplished the feat. The oilskins are yet in requisition, the guides yet demand and receive their fees, and the certificates are yet given. Ter mination Point, too, may yet exist, but no mortal being can visit it. It never could be seen from the cavernous tunnel—one side rock, the other water, and the floor a composition of both—which led thither. And the path to it is now cut ofT. One can still walk about a yard under the cataract, but no further foothold is afforded, and another step would lead one to an intimate acquaintance with all the mvsteries which it is here forbidden us to know. Rre long, doubtless, now that the stratum of soft rock has fallen, the upper mass will fall; and then another step will be taken in the slow course in which Niagara has eaten its own way back from Queeuston, and is—if geologists say true—to wear itself away somewhere above Chippewa.— Hamilton Spectator. At the late term of the Lancaster (Ohio.) Common Pleas Court, Ashbery Doherty, Esq., was convicted of passing counterfeit money, and sentenced to three years, imprisonment in the Penitentiary. Mr. D. was a citizen of Violet Township, and was regarded as one of the best citizens, having served as a.ius tice of the Peace for many years, and acting in that capacity when arrested. It appeared in evidence that for some years past he has been in the habit of buying counterfeit money of men who traveled about the country to sell it, and managed to got it off in making payments on his docket and otherwise. The principal witness against him was ) a Mr. Houk, who was acting as constable of the i township, and who was also arrested for a similar offence. THE RUSSIAN TREATY WITH CHINA. —The London Timet, in an editorial article on the subject, gives j the following synopsis of the treaty negotiated by- Count Putiatine: It consists of only twelve articles. The first guarantees an intercommunity of securities for the j subjects of the respective empires. The second regulates the diplomatic relations between the two 1 Courts, gives to every Russian agent at an open port a right of direct communication with Pekin, and provides for the passage of Russian Envoys, by land or bv sea, by any route they may choose, up to the capital. The third article gives to Russia i the very important privilege of trading to open [ ports; and the fourth puts Russian shipping, in res pect of dues,upon the same footing with other Euro- i pean countries. We may pass over some of the subsequent arti cles, which relate to the presence of Russian ships j of war in Chinese ports, the treatment of wrecked Russian subjects, the ex-territorial juridical im-1 munities of the subjects of the respective nations, 1 and the circulation of Russian missionaries, pro vided with passports signed by Russian authorities, j The ninth article contains a stipulation dangerous | to China,—that a convention shall be held to settle the conterminous frontiers of the two i I empires; the tenth emancipates the "Russian Ec- I clesiastical Mission at l'ekin" from all its previous | conditions of Chinese control; but the eleventh j draws very close the ties that are hereafter to con- I ncct the two countries. The eleventh article pro- I vides that a regular postal service shall be estab- j lished between l'ekin and Kiakhta, a city on the frontier, northwest from l'ekin, and in a line be tween that capital and St. i'etersburg—for the communication between the Governments, as well as for the wants of "the Ecclesiastical Mission at l'ekin." It is stipulated that the Chinese couriers shall perform the to and fro service between l'ekin and Kiakhta at least once a month, and shall make , the transit in fifteen days. Moreover, it is agreed that every three months a convoy shall make the | transit between these points in a space not exceed ing one month; and this convoy shall be equal to ' the transport of every kind of effects. The only | remaining articles consists of the favored nation i clause, whereby Russia adds to the special stipula tions, which she alone can use, all the general ad vantages that have been fought for and negotiated for by England and France. Several merchants of Louisville, Kv., some time i since institutedaction against Larkih F. Sanders, of Carrollton, Ky., charging him with fraud, etc.', in the purchase of goods under false pretenses ; The suit was dismissed last week, and Sanders has brought suit against these parties, claiming $40,000 damages, for alleged malicious prosecution, PRICE TWO CENTS THE WINTER FASHIONS. I Correspondence of the North American, j PARIS, October 14.—Every autumn we are favored with the curious spectacle of the remarkable in stinct, or rather sagacitv and intelligence of the feathered tribes. With the flight ot the we notice the advent of winter modes. Our gaily decked shop windows display thick rich silks, moire antiques, brocades, plain heavy taffetas, bright col ored plaids, and an infinite variety of woolen goods. Many of those latter tissues are sufticienty hand some to replace, even among the most extravagant ly disposed ladies, silks as walking and home tqi letts. The velour tpinglc de laine is a beautilul fabiie; some are plain, others have ft very small figure, of a brighter color than the ground. The bodies of walking dresses are made high, and but toned in front. With these basauos are scarcely ever seen; rounded bodies, with a band and buckle, or a ribbon-sash fastened in front, being the style now in favor. Manv robes are made with points before and behind. In full dress this form is indis pensable. Plceves are generally worn open and large, but for the winter costume a closed sleeve, with a wristband, will be adopted. Moir antique, in black or colors, still retain the favor it. has so long enjoyed. This material is also much used for trimmings on burnous. These are made frequently in cashinire, in broad Algerian stripes, or in light colored cashinire, wadded and trimmed with plaid, and also in black silk, trimmed with plaid or plain velvet, plaited ribbon or silk, or with handsome passementerie. When trimmed with moir the lin ing should be of the same ciilor. There are new fashioned taffetas of a rich quality; the ground is white, with checks rather more than half an inch in size, formed by fine colored threads. Around the bottom of the skirt arc three plain stripes, the color of the checks, four inches wide, in qrue detours. We sec dresses of a plain color, such as light brown, lilac, blue or green, with one breadth in front, ar ranged en tabller, of plaid silk of many colors, in which blue and green predominate; or the front breadth ornamented in pa'terns formed in fancy velvets, imitating plaited ribbons, bradenburgs fas tened by buttons of the same color as the dress, or in a Urccque. Others have the front breadth ot white silk, with horizontal wreaths of flowers sur mounting fringes of the same color as the dress. Again, some are made with one breadth of a plain colored silk, and a half breadth of the just-described silk, placed alternately. Flounces have replaced double skirts; these are generally only two, either plain or festooned, or else one very deep flounce, surmounted by five small ones of two or three inch es deep. The skirt is extremely full, and very long behind, almost forming a train. Undersleeves are profusely trimmed with puffings, ribbons, vel vet and lace, and are generally closed with em broidered revers ornamented with lace, on which narrow velvets are run, and lace harbes of puffings run up the sleeve all round. For neglige, collars and sleeves are made with flat small plaits and Val enciennes trimming. The winter bonnets will be made rather larger that those worn during the past year; the front comes farther forward, and the crown slants off behind. The curtain is wide, round, and not raised at all. The very wide and long strings are often bound with a piece of velvet or ribbon of a different color. The inside trimming continues to be an empressknot of foliage or ribbon, or else a half wreath of flowers. COLLIERY ACCIDENTS IN ENGLAND. —A Parliamen- J tary blue-book lias just been published, containing the reports of tbe Government inspectors of mines, upon the various fatal colliery accidents which i have occurred in Great Britain during the year ending the 31st of December, 185". From a tabular statement,with which the inspectors preface their re ports, it appears that the whole number of separate fatal colliery accidents in the island during the year 1857 had been 760, and the number of lives lost j 1,119, being a decrease of 41 in the number of acci dents, and an increase of 92 in the number of lives ' lost, as compared with the previous year. The whole number of accidents included 74' explosions of tire-damp, causing a loss of 377 lives; 360 acci dents arising from the fall of coal or the roof and , sides of workings, causing a loss of 372 lives; 144 shaft accidents, causing a loss of 163; and 182 mis cellaneous accidents, causing a loss of 208 lives. ' During the year 1856 there were about 230,000 per sons employed in and about the collieries of Great Britain, and about 66,500,000 tons of coal were ■ raised. The loss of life was, therefore, at the rate j of about one persons killed in each 224 employed, and one killed for each 64,751 tons of coal raised. * In 1857 the production of coal was considerably in- • creased in some districts, while in others there was a slight decrease, the total production being pro- ] bably about 68,000,000 tons. The loss of life, there- ; fore, in 1857 was about one person killed for each j 60,709 tons produced.
