BAI.TIMOHK, November 11, 1858. Stocks were again moderately active to-day, the transactions reaching about ,$42,000. There was nothing done in Northern Central Railroad, and there was no bid made for it. Baltimore and Ohio advanced 50 cents per share, with sales of 550 shares at $57% seller's option 60 days, SSB regular way, and $5851 buyer 00 days, closing at $57% bid, SSB asked cash. Bank shares were very quiet, with sales of only 9 shares Bank of Baltimore at $lO3. — We also note sales of 200 shares Baltimore Fire In surance at sls, and 400 shares Springfield Mining at $2.18 buyer CO days, and $2.12)4 cash, showing no change since yesterday. Canton is quiet an J held at s2l. Baltimore city o*3 show a little weakness, SIBSO 1890's selling at 99%@99%, % lower than last sales, and $2,000 1875*8 at 9G% also a decline of %. Both Baltimore and Ohio and Northern Central Railroad bonds are firm, with sales of SI,OOO 1867*3 of the former at 92 and SISOO 1885*s of the latter at 73)4(&73%, an improvement of %. There was like wise a sale of SSOO Northwestern Virginia 3d mort gage unendorsed at 34%, % lower than last sales. At Now York to day Virginia C's improved %, but fancies at the first board generally receded,with some recovery at the second Board. The day's de cline in Erie was %\ New York Central Reading Cleveland and Toledo %, and Galena and Chi cago )H. La Crosse advanced At the meeting of the Directors of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company held yesterday a divi dend of four and a half per cent, on the Washing ton Branch of the Road was declared for the past six months. We also learn that at that meeting Chauncey Brooks, Esq., tendered his resignation as President of the Company, but it was not accepted, his communication, on motion of Mr. J. M. Smith, city director, being laid upon the table. Mr. Bartlett offered a resolution appropriating SI ,500 to be used in the erection of a suitable build ing at the Washington Junction (Relay House,) for the purpose of protecting passengers, baggage and mails from the weather. The need of such a build ing has long been felt at this point, where over forty thousand passengers were landed, taken np or changed cars during the past year. The resolution met the approval of the Board, and was referred to the Committee on Transportation, with power to act. The New York Tribune of to-day says : The Money market exhibits symptoms of increased ease, and many of the Bank managers who joined in the recent attempt to advance the rate of interest have abandoned the hope of success. One of the most conservative ex pressed the opinion yesterday that there was nothing to look for in the coming six months but continued abun dance. Call loans are easy at 4n 5 per cent, with occa sional transactions at a lower figure, and paper is percent, in the discount houses, and in free demand at these rates, very little of what maybe classed as gilt edged being passed above 6 per cent. i here is no movement of importance in Foreign Ex - change, but the market is heavy.

DOMESTIC MARKETS. NEW YORK CATTLE MARKET, Nov. 10.—BEEVES. — The arrivals this week were again large, but the excess over last week's supply was not great, amounting to only 180 head. The market was largely attended, but there were very few who manifested anv desire to purchase, butchers and speculators being profoundly indifferent whether they purchased or not, and were onlv desirous to buy at terms which the owners of cattle are not willing to meet. Although the quality of the cattle for sale was on an average, much superior to that of last week's supplv the indifference of buyers and the numbers at market tended to produce a heaviness, which resulted in a decline in prices of about #(<z)#c. The best cattle at market would not bring over 9c.. and at the latter part of the day it was utterly impossible to get even that price, many of the best ones having been sold at B#c. A good many sales were made at about 7# 58c.. but by far the greatest part of them were made between 6(a7c., a good many very inferior cattle only bringing about s#c. The receipts are principally from Ohio, New York and Illinois, the former State furnishing more than one-third of the total supply, and New York nearly one-quarter. There was a consid erable business done at Bergen—the sales amounting to nearly SSO head— the prices obtained not being quite up to those of tiie previous week. MILCH Cows.—The market continues extremely dull, and there is but little demand. The offerings are con siderable. nut there is no disposition to purchase. Prices remain unchanged at our quotations. snPP'y large notwithstanding the arrivals tins week have slightly diminished. The de mand is only moderate, and prices are slightly lower for the inferior, while the better qualities bring about pre vious prices, being less plenty and meeting with a fair demand. SHEEP AND LAMBS.—The market is well supplied, though not in excess of the demand, which is good. Prices are pretty well sustained, and vary but little from those of last week. SWINE.— Are in large supply, and there is a fair de mand. Prices have advanced, and there was a good business done at our quotations. BEEF CATTLE.

An increased disposition to realize trim exhibited, on the part of holders, in the early part of the week; but towards the close this was not observable, and the market the last two or three days has ruled about as it has done for some time past. A moderate local and some export demand for the higher grades of superfine and extra, hut common brands neglected. We continue to quote superfine $4 20 @4.60, the latter fancy; and extra $4.09@5 15, the latter for fancy white wheat. The stock is large, and continues to accumulate not only at this point, but at all other places in the interior, and on the river above and below. 11,576 bbls. were received during the week, and 8.379 do. exported. IToas AVT> CATTLE.—The market for Hogs has been quite excited during the week, and prices advanced fully 50c. per cwt . net. with an active speculative demand for fu ture delivery, chiefly from drovers and feeders. The con tracts made during the week embrace 25.000 bead, opening at $5.75 and closing at $6 25. The time embraces this ami the fore part of next month. For present delivery, at the close, buyers did not oCTer over $6. notwithstand ing. though $6.25 could have been easily obtained for fu ture delivery. Beef Cattle have been in but moderate supply, and the market has ruled firm at $25}3 25 per cwt., gross, the lat ter rate for prime Cattle. PROVISIONS. —For old meat there has not been much demand during the week, though the speculative de ; maud for new lias stiffened the market, and unsettled it, I to a great extent, as the price of Bacon Sides, for in ! stance, is far below the price now being paid for hogs, in proportion, and indeed the same may IK? said of Mess Pork. A good deal has lteen done in Mess Pork for future delivery, at terms not made public. Green Hams have also been sold quite extensively for future delivery at Bc. , The transactions made public since our last have been | as follows : In Mess Pork, Wednesday. 100bbls. at $15.50. Monday, ! 100 do. (now) at the same rates; and yesterday 100 do. (old) ' at sl6. closing at this rate, but the market vs as somewhat unsettled. In Bacon, Thursday, 130 hhds.

Tuesday, (yesterday) 81 tierces common canvassed Hams sold at 9c. The market closed at 6jlf and B#c. for Shoulders snd Sides. WHISKEY. —The current sales each day was as follows. Wednesday ISc.; Thursday 17#'c.; Friday 17#c; Saturday, Monday and yesterday, 18c. The market closing firm. The Cincinnati- Price Current of the Ist says: The packing season, at this place, lias but barely opened, and yet, strange as it may appear, the market has been much excited throughout the week, as we have noticed it at any time during the season, in other years. This is an unusual occurrence, and is the subject of very general re mark; but as the buyers are hog dealers and feeders from the interior, it will he thus seen this demand is simply speculative, and the cause of this is an opinion generally entertained by them that the crop will prove seriously short, which, by the way, is not a new idea with our Ken tucky neighbors in particular. The buoyant, and excited state of the market noticed in our last.continued through out the week, but became more intense from day to day, and prices advanced fully 50 cents per cwt., closing firm at $6.25 per hundred pounds net for hogs for future deliv ery, say the last two week-of this and the first two of next month. Most of our packers have orders from the country to buy, and some of these orders have been quite peremptory. Various rumors are afloat, and we have some letters in our possession from Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois, which have been "sent to us. expecting that we would publish them, we presume, but as we are not acquainted with the writers, we decline publishing them, and more especially because they are the representations of parties evidently interested. About 6,000 head of hogs were received here during the week, and about 3.000 slaughtered. The feeling at the close continued buoyant, and as the weather is sufficient ly cool, the indications arc that slaughtering will be gen eral the coming week. Mess Pork has been sold quite ex tensively for future delivery, at $15.50 for December, and sl6 for January, but at tiie close there were no sell ers at these rates, and we understood that sl6 was paid for Deccmler delivery last evening. The short crop cry from the country is so general, and being accompanied by orders to buy. it has made our packers a little restive,and they find it rather difficult to keep caltn; but they should bear in inind that the cry of • wolf—wolf," when there was no wolf, in other years, has led them to make serious mistakes. To the calm and disinterested observer, the evidences are clearly iu favor of a good supply of Hogs—better than last year. But even if the supply should prove none greater than last year, how par ties who buy hogs at $firstname.lastname@example.org, expect to nif.ke the business pay in a season like this, when ail kinds of human food, except pork, is abundant and cheap throughout the world, is certainly beyond our compre hension. REVIEW OF THE WILMINGTON MARKET for the weekending November 10.—TURPENTINE.— The receipts have been heavier during the week ending to-day, than for several weeks past. The demand appears to be better, and we note an advance of 5 cents for Virgin and Yellow- Dip. Parcels are readily taken at $3.10 for Virgin ami Yellow Dip, and $1.75 for Hard per 280 lbs.

The market closing with further in quiry. RICHMOND TOBACCO MARKET.—The market is quiet, with offerings equal to the demand. The inspec tions are quite small, and the supply is composed mainly of reviews. The new crop arrives pretty freely and selis at s4fa!B. The leaf is generally small, but the quality is very fair. We quote old lugs at s4(j7; common and me dium leaf $6( 8; fair to good shipping and working s9@ 10#; fine working leaf sl2@l6#. The new crop seems more waxy than the last, and we advise farmers not to press the working kinds so hard as to stick the leaves too closely together. MARKETS BY TELEGRAPH.

BAPTIST UNION ASSOCIATION. — Morning Session.— The Association re-assembled at 9 o'clock yesterday morning with Rev. G. Samson, Aloderator, in the chair, and spent the first hour in singing and prayer. Shortly after ten o'clock the meeting Avas called to order by the Aloderator, and until eleven o'clock the time was occupied in hearing the finan cial statement of several churches which had not before reported. At eleven o'clock a motion was made to adjourn until 3J.£ o'clock yesterday afternoon, which was unanimously adopted. After joining in religious exercises the congrega tion was dismissed and the Association adjourned. AFTERNOON SESSION. At three o'clock the delegates and the public be gan to assemble, and bv half-past three the large church was entirely full. The meeting was called to order by the Alodera tor, after which the congregation joined in devo tional exercises. The proceedings of the previous session were read by the clerk and approved. The report relative to Columbian College was next taken up, and after hearing one of the dele gates who represents the college, the following re solution tvas offered: ltcsolved, That this Association take into consid eration the propriety and expediency of removing the college into the city of Washington, at as early a moment as the board of trustees will consent to. The Agent of the college arose before the vote was taken upon the above resolution, and spoke at some length, setting forth the propriety of the re moval, and pointing out the advantages to he de rived from having the college situated within the limits ol the city. He also explained to the Associa tion the financial condition of the college, Ac. He was followed by the Aloderator, Rev. G. Sam son, ot AVasliington city, who also commenced his remarks with a review of the financial affairs of the College. He stated that the total amount of collec tions lrom all sources since its commencement were $150,000. He also stated that at its last session Congress had presented the Association with $25,- 000, in real estate, within the city of AVasliington. Air. Thomas U. Walter, architect, of AVasliington city, then arose, and stated that the question which was now before the meeting had been before the Board of Trustees of the Columbian College, of which lie was a member, for a long time, and en quiry had very frequently been made as to the ex act amount necessary to erect a suitable building in the city for the College. He stated that to answer those questions would be an utter impossibility, as the Trustees could not form an idea as to what the cost of a new building in the city would he, nor what the buildings notv owned by the College would sell for. ltev. J.AV. M. Williams, of this city, nextnddress ed the meeting. He commenced by considering the future prospects of the College if it was allowed to remain where it now stands. He entertained the opinion that the great and principal reason why the College tvas not realizing the expectations of the Association was the fact that the majority of the Board of Trustees were members of other denomi nations than Baptists, and as the Baptist Union As sociation had supported the College for upwards of thirty years, he considered that the Association had a perfect right to appoint a Board <li .'Trustees entirely of tho Baptist denomination. H<#spoke for some time, advocating the removal, and tvas listened to with marked attention. Rev. Air. Itothwell, of Washington city, then ad dressed the meeting. He referred to the resolution which had been offered by Brother Adams, and also to the remarks made by Rev. J. W. M. Williams. He went on to say that tho college was entirely un der the control of the Baptist denomination, and he could not discover any disadvantage arising from the fact that other denominations than Baptists were represented in the Board of Trustees. He gave an account of the financial condition, Ac., of tlic College. Air. L. P. Baync, of this city, arose, and com menced his remarks by stating his decided objec tions to the removal of the College into the city- of Washington. He stated that if the college was' re moved into that city there were not sufficient Bap tists to back up the College in case of need. He recommended the propriety of removing the Col lege, ifit was removed at all, to the city of Balti more, setting forth as his reasons that the greater part of the help which had been given to the Col lege had come from that portion of the Baptist As sociation who reside in this city, and he therefore considered that this city had more claim upon the College than the city of Washington. He then offered the following resolution : Resolved, That the trustees of this Association, in, conjunction \\ iftf the board of t: ustees of the col/ lege, be to examine the deeds, grant J Ac., of the college, Vflth reference to the propriety of transferring the sarpe to the city of Baltimore. " After some considerably argument bv the dele gates, this resolution wA wi'hdrayvn *• ' the origi nal resolution offered by AI r. Adams tvas presented to the Association, tvitli the words "Washington city" struck out, leaving it optional with the board of trustees to remove it to any point they consider ed best. Air. A. Fuller Crane then made a motion that the report npon Columbian College, and the resolution otiered by Air. Adams, be accepted and ordered to be printed in the minutes of this Association.— Upon being put to vote it was unanimously adopted. Rev. William Crane then proceeded to read the Treasurer's report. The Treasurer states that the amount received from contribution during the past year has been $2,893, amount expended $2,975. — After the report had been read the M oderator moved that the report be accepted, and ordered to be printed in the minutes of the Association.— Adopted. The report upon the Widows,and Superannuated Ministers' Fund was next read to the Associa tion. The report was accepted and ordered to be print ed in the minutes. The following resolution was offered by Rev. Wil liam Crane, of Washington citv : Resolved, That the thanks of this Association be extended to Airs. James Wilson, ot" this citv, for twenty-five shares of stock of the Bank of Balti more, valued at SIOO per share. The resolution was put to vote and passed unani mously. The financial report tvas read and laid upon the table, after which the Association adjourned until 7jqj o'clock last evening. The meeting yvas closed with devotional exercises by the Moderator. EVENING SESSION. The Association re-assembled last evening at 7Y, o'clock, and after the observance of religious exer cises, the report of the Committee on Finance was called up. it showed that 52.500 had been collect ed during the past year in aid of the Association, being hut a little over one-half the usual amount.— It recommended the employment of a travelling agent, to act as a missionary for the State, and for the collection of funds for this purpose. The Rev. Mr. AVilson, of this city, stated that such a course had been tried and f ailed of success. He urged that a systematic course in all churches for the making of collections would be attended with better results. If, said he, the members would only contribute to the church the amount each fam ily expended for the single item of butter each year, the treasury would always contain enough for all practical purposes. A delegate suggested that the item of tobacco, would be a more appropriate one npon which to base his suggestions. After a further discussion of the report, the adop tion of which was also advocated by the Rev. Air. Sampson, the Aloderator, Air. J. D. Pratt, of this city, moved to strike out that portion relative to the Agency, which motion prevailed and the report was adopted. The Rev. Air. AVilson then offered a ' resolution recommending that a systematic course for taking collections he adopted in all the churches, which resolution was adopted. A subscription for the payment of the liabilities of the True Union, the organ of the Association, was then made and the amount of $660 was realized thereby. The report of the Committee on Sabbath Schools urging an increased attention of the Church to this branch of its labors, and setting forth its claims to the fostering care of the membership, was read and adopted. Air. Richards, of Washington, submitted a reso lution providing for a convention of the superin tendents and teachers of these schools, at an early day, which was adopted, and a committee appointed to arrange therefor. The Committee on Colporteurage submitted their report, detailing the beneficial results of the dis tribution of books and tracts, and urging increased attention to this subject. It was adopted. The Committee on the time and place of holding the next meeting of the Association, reported in favor of its being held on the second Thursday of November, 1859, at Newtown, Eastern Shore of Alaryland, and that the Rev. Dr. Fuller preach the annual sermon, and naming the Rev. G. W. Sam son as his alternate. Air. Ryan, of this citv, objected to the adoption of this report, urging that the meeting should be held either in this city or Washington, where a larger attendance could be secured, and a greater amount of money collected. Mr. Richards, of Washington, then moved to amend the report, by inserting theE street Baptist church of that city, and after a protracted discus sion the motion was adopted. The report, as thus amended, was then submitted, when a motion to re-consider the vote upon the pro posed amendment was made, and adopted. The proposed amendment was then submitted for a second vote, when it was negatived. Air. Ryan, of this city, then moved to amend bv inserting the Ist Baptist church of this city, which was lost by a decided vote. The report of the committee, naming Newtown was then taken up, and adopted bv a large ma! jority. The Association then adjourned t'ue die, and after the observance of religious exercises the audience were dismissed. POLICE APPOINTMENTS.— Mayor Swann has made the following police appointments during the past few days to fill vacancies caused bv removals deaths and resignations: Howard Riley', vice John Iludgins, removed; Richard Phillips, vice Alexan der Thompson, removed; Edward L.

PuOCEEDIXIiK OF THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS OF Pem.tc WORKS. —This body met at Barnum's on Wednesday last, ami the following minutes are fur nished by the President of the Board : BALTIMORE, Nov. 10, 1858 At a meeting of the Commissioners of Public Works, held at Barnum's City Hotel at noon this day, the following business was transacted : On motion of Major Schley, the meeting was or ganized by calling Mr. H. U. Reynolds, President of the Board, to tiie Chair. Mr. Reynolds took the chair, and stated he was now ready for the transac tion of any business the gentlemen had to submit, when Major Schley read a letter from Major Pe ters, informing the Board of his inability to meet them, on account of being confined to his bed by sickness. Major Schley then produced and read the resignation of Dr. Wm. B. Tyler, a State Di rector, of Frederick city, which was unanimously accepted. Major Schley then asked the privilege of offering a series of resolutions before going into ballot to fill the vacancy, which was assented to. He then of fered his resolutions, which were voted down, and so recorded as the proceedings of the Board. Major Schley then put in nomination Grayson Eichelberger, Esq., of Frederick. Mr. Lankford put in nomination George P. Whittaker, Esq., of Cecil county, and Mr. Reynolds put in nomination Geo. W. Robinson, of tins city, each member of this Board voting for his own candidate until about to take the fourth ballot, when Mr. Reynolds asked permission to make a suggestion. Permission was granted and Mr. Reynolds said, "Gentlemen I will now pledge myself upon the honor, of*h gentleman, that after this ballot, should I he minority, I will most cheerfully east my vote with the majority, so as to make ah amicable and full vote." Mr. Lankford said "that is fair, lam satis lied." Major Schley said, "Mr. Reynolds I won't accept that proposition, neither will'l holtt you to it." Mr. Reynolds then said, "Major Schley, will you vote for any other gentleman in the city of Baltimore to fill the vacancy." Major Schley, emphatically, "No, sir, 1 will hot, I will have mv nominee or nothing—l prefer tho vacancy kept open first." Mr. Reynolds, "Gentlemen are you prepared to vote—Major Schley please act as teller." " Yes sir." "Gentlemen have you voted?" " Yes sir"— please an- he result—"Grayson Eichelberger one vote, George AY. Robinson two votes." Major Schley immediately says "no election." Mr. Reynolds, "why?" Mr. Schley, "it requires three rotes." Mr. Reynolds, "Sir, I should suppose if two votes out of three could vote down your resolutions, as you have recorded, two votes mit of three can elect'a Director." The Board not agree ing on that point agreed to adjourn until 4 o'clock, P. AI., for the purpose of obtaining some informa tion on Parliamentary usages, &c. The Board met at 4' P. M., when, on motion of Mr. Lankford, another ballot was had, and the re sult was, one vote for Grayson Eichelberger, and two votes for George AY. Robinson, Esq., of this city. The President then decided that three mem bers ol the Board constituted a quorum and was com petent to transact any business which might be brought before them, and George AV. Robinson hav ing received a majority of all the votes cast, I therefore declared hint duly elected to fill the vacan cy and in view of that fact have sent a certifi cate to the President of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad for the purpose of having George W. Rob inson, Esq., sworn into his olliee as State Director. Major Seldey refused to record the decision of the President, but no appeal was taken from his deci sion.

Coroner Battee field an inquest yesterday over the body of Jaines Davidson, shoemaker, who died suddenly yes terday morning at the house ofhis mother, corner of Con way and Little Green streets. His death was supposed to have been caused by disease of the heart. The jury ren dered a verdict of "death from natural causes." LA W INTELLIGENCE. CRIMINAL COURT.—non Henry Stump, Judge. Alilton Whitney. Esq., State's Attorney, prosecuting. The fol lowing cases occupied the attention of the Court yester day : Staters. Chas. F. Brooks, charged with an assault with an attempt to kill Marshal Manly, in the Theatre. The assault was committed by two persons, one of whom was tried on Saturday last and sentenced to fine and imprison ment. Brooks was not to be found this morning, having been admitted to bail by the magistrate who committed him. Mr. Whitney asked that the witnesses in the case might be discharged until further notice. State rs. August Bugley, charged with the larceny of three window sashes, the property of Thos. Street. The evidence proved that the party charged was arrested witti the sash in his possession. He stated to the officer that he was taking the sash to Mr. Strauss, on the county wharf. The officer accompanied him, and Mr. Strauss stated that the articles were not for him as he had not or dered them. The officer then arrested the party. Mr. Street identified the sash as his property. The counsel went before the jury. Air. Sweeny, for the prisoner, con tended that the mere possession was not evidence of theft, and as the prosecution had failed to prove the act of steal ing. he therefore asked for an acquittal. He proceeded to read from authorities to sustain his position. Air. Sweeny (stopping in his citation of authority).— "Ah, that Is not what I want." Air. Whitney.—"That's the wrong book. That part don't fit." Judge Stump —"Oh, you had better go on and read the rest." Air Sweeny.—"l made a mistake. I did not intend to read that." After the conclusion of the remarks of the attorney for the prisoner, Air. Whitney addressed the jury, merely reverting to the law, and its application to the facts in the case. The jury retired, and in a few minutes returned with a verdict of "guilty." Judge Stump to Air. Sweeny.—"The jury have ren dered a verdict of guilty. Do you wish to make any motion ?" .Mr. Sweeny.—"No, sir. I had enough of motions on yesterday." Judge Stump.—"Then I sentence the prisoner to eigh teen months iu the Penitentiary." <> F. Hack, Esq., apieared for Charles Afiller, charged with an attempt at arson, and asked that the prisoner be admitted to bail, stating that he had been committed by the Atayor in default of $5,000 bail, which he considered enormous and asked the Court to reduce it. Judfru' Stuni]. —"The Mayor has fixed it."' Mr. Hack.— 'But I want to unfix it." Judge Stump.—"Can you raise $3.000? Mr. Hack.—"s2,ooo is much as is usually asked for in similar cases. M Stump.—"Well. I'll ask $2,500." Air. Hack.—"Well, I II see." Judge Stump.—"Do you want to remove the case? Mr. Hack.—"Oh, no sir " [Laughter.] The case of John Rotcn was called and the witness. Francis Neat, who was absent on AVednesday. appeared. Judge Stump.—"Why did you not come here before?" Witness.—"l was advised not to come. I was afraid of Rotcn." The counsel for the prisoner was absent by sickness and the case was postponed. The witness was held to appear in the case on notice in the sum of S3OO. Judge Stump.—"Now you must appear, and if you don't I'll fine you and send you to limbo." State rs.

Bowers, by throwing him ont of a window. Tile principal witness for the State being an inmate of the almshouse, and as there are three persons charged with this offence, the other having their cause in Baltimore county, Mr. Whitney suggested the propriety of sending this case there also. The case was removed Mr. Whitney stated there were fifteen indictments for assaults with an attempt to kill, and he would set them down for Tuesday and Wednesday next, asking that the clerk might place notices to that effect in the rotunda.— The indictments for arson will he taken upon Monday.

Since the of troops to and from Utah has ceased, ojtr relapsed into comparative quiet, but still have an occasional arrival which prevents A'estcrday week a con side'rahlc/nuudbfcot' Xlol Lander's Northern Pacific Wifgo n -/o adpa rty canie in from the West on their way Most of them arc young inen Gn th*JK*udgc Eckels arrived from Utah, having with him two or three apostate-Alormon . and an Indian girl eleven or twelve vcars ola that he her captors, and there by prohably saved lu-r life, as it is a custom among these western tribes to put their prisoners to death as soon as benin to net scarce. He is going to educate ner. The Jiuige would not say much about his difficulties njWrGov. Camming, but I gathered from reliable sniffers that Mr. Buchanan will have to decide which one of them lie will retain in office. " It seems prettv generally conceded that Cumming is unsuit?d for his position, but perhaps suitable men for territorial governors are hard to find, at least the history of our government for the la3t four years, seems to leaa to such a conclusion. On the 14th, Mr. Wilson, the newly-appointed District At torney for Utah, and hi 3 wi?b, arrived here in an extra stage of the mail line. They started west ward yesterday morning. The late papers bring usJiew3 of great excite ment at this point, concerning the discovery of gold"at Pike's Peak. The item is simply false. I have heard of but three persons who thought of going to the Peak, and they have abandoned the idea. Labor rs arc numerous here, and every day there arc applications either to obtain work, or to get a conveyance to the States. it seems the AA'ar Department is calculating upon the Sixth infantry getting to the Pacilic coast in time to participate in the present campaign against the Indians in Oregon and AVasliington territories. Persons who travel only by railroad and steamboat regard a distance of six or seven hundred miles as a forty-eight or sixty hours' journey, but if they were compelled to "foot it," they would find it required nearly as many days. AVlien we last heard from the Sixth they were getting along very slowly, and would prohably be compelled to winter in Carson's Valley, as their animals were worn out. I doubt if even Arr. Floyd's order can infuse new life and strength into their mules. Hur mail stages continue to make pretty good time, but our mails are sadly deranged. A great many letters and papers go through to Salt Lake City and then return to us. Owing to some unac countable cause our dates from AA'asliington are generally two, three or four days later than those lrom New A'ork, Philadelphia or Baltimore. Tho distributing office at Independence, Missouri, being three miles from the mail boats, letters are always delayed at that point at least twenty-four hours, and frequently longer. If the distributing could be done at St. Joseph, or even at Leavenworth, it would bo a great advantage to us. OPENING OF THE TEHUANTEPEC ROUTE. I Prom the .Yew Orleans True Delta.] SOUTH WEST PASS, Nov. s. —The Tehuantepcc Company's steamship Quaker City, which left Mina titlan at 8 o'clock, on Tuesday morning, the 2d inst., arrived at South West Pass' at (>l4 o'clock this morning, making the run from Minatitlan in less than three days. She reports having made the run from New- Orleans to her wharf at Minatitlan in seventy hours. She found the steamer Suchil waiting for her at the bar of the Coatzcoalcas. Tho Suchil arrived out on the 26th ult., and her arrival was hailed with the greatest demonstrations of welcome. Tho Suchil accompanies the Quaker City to Mina titlan, where an immediate transfer of passengers and mails was made to the Suchil. At noon of Saturday, the 30th ult., the Suchil steamed up the river in fine style on her pioneer trip. The facilities for navigation are unsurpassed, and the beauty of the scenery on the river must be seen to be fully appreciated. The trip up the river from Minatitlan to Sucliil was performed in about eighteen hours early on the morning of Sunday, tho 31st. The passengers were landed at the Company's wharf, at Suchil, and in less than two hours after wards were fairly on their way, with the mails and baggage for Aluioya. No delay or inconvenience was experienced in the passage up the river. At Almoya, the head of Navigation, stages were in waiting to receive the passengers and mails. The roads across the Isthmus were in fine condi tion, there liavim; been no rains for a week. All arrangements haa been perfected for the transit, and no apprehension was felt in regard to making the connection on the pacific side. Mr. Murphy, the superintendent of the road, accompanied the mails, and felt sure that the transit from Suchil to Ventosa would be made in thirty hoars or less. Mr. La Sere, the president of the company, also went with the mails, and started from Suchil with the most sanguine expectations of the success of the en terprise. The Suchil brought the following despatch, dated A'entosa, Oct. 28th: '"Col. Schadas, with 400 troops from Caxacos, entered Tehuantepec on the 20th inst., having dis persed the forces of Zuloaga, who has now no hold whatever on the Isthmus." The country is unusually healthy, and the people of the Isthmus are much elated at the opening of the route—in fact, it absorbs all other questions of a political or warlike character. The company's road is opened for coaches be tween Almoloa and Ventosa, which is more than half the way between the points of navigation, and mule travel will be rapidly shortened, until within a few weeks the entire transit will be made in coaches. On Wednesday afternoon Alicliael AlcGovern alias John Ilollis, was shot in New Y'ork by policeman Cairnes. Hollis had been arrested upon complaint of the captain of a ship, for assault and batterv. AVhile the oilicer was taking him and another to the Tombs, he knocked the officer down and ran. The officer sprang to his feet and started in pur suit. While running he fired three shots, the third taking ett'ect in Hollis' right side as he was turn ing the corner of Fulton street. Hollis was placed in a cart, and sent to the New York Hospital, hut died before be reached it. Officer Cairnes gave himself into custody. The New Y'ork News savs: "Intense excitement prevailed in the neighbor hood where Hollis was shot, and a disposition was evinced to lynch the officer, but the prompt arrival of some police prevented violence to his person. The cries of 'Hang him to a lamp post,' 'Hun him over an awning,' Ac., were numerous. "It seems that the origin of the sad event was the attempt of Hollis and his comrade to force them selves on board the St. Charles against the wishes of Captain Conway. They appeared to be deter mined to ship at all hazards, and were greatly ex asperated at the refusal of Capt. C. to take them. Before Captain Conway sent for police assistance he had been assailed by the parties throwing bricks and whatever missiles that came to hand. The ruflians exhibited such a desperate disposition that Captain Conway felt called upon to arm himself from fear of their attacks. "Ilollis was a powerful man and a notoriously bad character. He was a native of Ireland, 28 years of age, and leaves a family." Cairnes is highly spoken of as a careful, judicious and efficient oilicer. ODD FELLOWS DEDICATION. —On Tuesday last, the town of Westminster, Carroll county, was crowded with people from Carroll and the adjoining coun ties, and IVnnsylvania, to attend the dedication of the Odd Fellows' Hall. A number were also pres ent from Baltimore. The Lodges were formed in line in the following order : Salem Lodge, West minster, followed bv the Independent Blues' Band, from Baltimore; Rainbow Lodge, from Howard county: Mount Zion Lodge, Sykesville; Henry Clay Lodge, Reisterstown, Baltimore Cornet Band; Dan iel and Jacob's Lodge, Manchester, Manchester Band; Columbia Encampment, Westminster, AVest minster Cornet Band. Geo. E. Wampler was Chief Marshal, and Charles S. Devilbis and Alichael Baughtnan, assistants. After passing through Main street, they were joined by Hanover Lodge, of Han over, l'a., and the whole body inarched into the Ilall, which was crowded. The dedicatory cere mony was performed by Grand .Master Joshua A'an sant, who delivered an address, and was followed bv Deputy Grand Alaster Wm. H. Y'oung. The officers of the Grand Lodge present were Grand Alaster Joshua A'ansant, D. G. AI. Wm. 11. Y'oung, G.W.Wm. G. Shearar. G. S. J. B. Escavaille, G.T. Richard Marley, G. C. A. Burdett, G. Her.

MORPHV AND HARWITZ AGAIN. —A letter dated Paris, Oct. 21st, (the latest date we liavefrom that city,) written by Mr. F. Gaillardet to the Courrier des Etats Unis, contains a paragraph which we trans late as follows: "As to Air. Alorphy, the chess giant, he has re commenced a match with llerr Harwitz, who al ready lost two games out of three with him. But another German. Herr Anderson, the victor in the Chess Tournament at London, is to come from Bres lau to spend the Christmas holidays, to avenge if he can the .defeats that old Europe has suffered from this prodigious child ofthe new world. The Navy Department is in receipt of intelligence from the following vessels of the Paraguay expedi tion, which sailed several weeks ago. The Fulton arrived at Barbadoes on the 15th of October, in ten days after leaving Norfolk; the AA'ater AVitch ar rived at the same place on the 16th ult., in eleven days from Norfolk; and the Harriet Lane also ar rived at the same place on the 20th ult., in twelve days from New York. The stoppage at Barbadoes consisted only of a few hours, long enough to take on board a fresh supply of coal. The vessels then left for the rendezvous at Montevideo..— Washing ton Star. . On AA ednesday last, in Roxbury, Alass., a boy was born, who, in addition to his mother, possesses the care of a grandmother aged 40; a great-grand mother aged 58; a great-great-granduiother aged 79, and a great-great-grcat-gi andfather aged 97. All but the old gentleman, Air. l'rescott. were born in the same house and same room, and he says he himself would have been had it not been for a* visit his parents were making near Boston. FOREIGN. —A letter from Leipsic informs us ofthe loss of a considerable quantity of American rail road shares and hank stocks) remitted by Consul AVeissenborn, at Gera, in the ill-fated steamship Austria. A new line of steamships will commence running on the 7th of November, between Altona, (near Hamburg,) and Quebec. One of the steamers ofthe new line is the well-known Anglo-Saxon. The Santa Fe Gazette estimates the number of sheep that will bo taken to California from New Alexico at 105,000, and a Air. Peters, of Ohio, was passing through the city with 10,000. It is stated that the number of members of the Evangelical churches of the United States du ring the last fiftv years, has increased from 400,- 000 to 3,600,000, being an increase of eight-fold, while our population has increased four-fold. The New Orleans Delta of the 6th says : There was a good white frost, at Vicksburg this morning, some report having seen ice. The thermometer at daylight stood at 33°. SALE OF PROPELLERS IN ENGLAND. [Fr>>m the Livcxpu/I Aorthcrn t nion ] The sale of tho French screw-steamer Francois Arag.i, hv auction last week, at Birkenhead, by order of the High Court of Admiralty, lias excited attention to the low prices ruling for this descrip tion of property, and speculations as to the future of the fleet of screw-steamers at present on sale.— Many are forced on the market from the bankrupt cy of the companies for whom they were specially constructed. Since 1852. screw propulsion for sea going ships has increased in a much greater ratio than the legitimate demand. 1. From Ihe exagge rated value attached to the combination of the screw propeller with sails. 2. From the grcnt stimulus given to it hv the Russian war. 3. Front the great facilities of credit given to speculative shipbuilders and owners in this country and on the Continent from 1854 to 1857. The practical result of long sea voyages has proved that auxiliary screw -ships are a costly mistake, and full powered ones too expensive to compete with clipper ships. The war demand, partially revived by the Indian mutiny and the Chinese mutiny, has ceased. The failure of the Western, Newcastle, and other banks, has put an end to the credit sys tem of shipbuilders, and the general result is that screw-steamers are selling at about one-third, or, as was the case with the Francois Arago, one-fifth of their original cost, when they can be sold at all; for the difficulty is to get a bidder at any price. In Hamburgh the Petropolis and Teutonia, two mag nificent screw ships, were offered by public sale a few days ago, at £lO per ton, having cost nearly £4O, and not a single bid was made for them. On the 28th, a new screw vessel of 2,400 tons, be longing to the same owners, or rather to their creditors, will be sold by auction in the Clyde. On the 30th, the fleet of steam vessels belonging to the Genesee Company, comprising six screws, four of them 1,800 tons, come to the hammer; to be fol lowed by the Antwerp steamers, built for the trans- Atlantic trade, ot 2,000 tons each. In France the Franco-American Company having lost their capital of 1,800.000 francs (£64,000), their half dozen ves sels of 16 to 1800 tons must be sold to pamoff the liabilities of the company; and the the European and American Company, composed of equally magnificent ships, must follow, if the posi tion of the concern is to be judged of by the price of their shares. Here then are twenty or thirty large screw steamers that must he cleared before the market can revive; where are the buyers to come from, and what are the circumstances that will rule prices? First, we must remark that of the whole, the great majority of the highest class auxiliary screw ships, perhaps there are not above two or three that could pass the Admiralty standard of twelve knots at the measured mile. It appears clear that these vessels will be sold at the price at which they will pay, as sailing ships, consequently, their value is ruled by the freight market, and tlieir power of competency with the improved class of timber ships now at work. With tlieir engines taken out, many of these ships would answer admirably as carrying vessels, and eve predict this will be the i'ate of all the auxiliary ships. The fact must be looked in the face, that, in the present state of steam navigation, no auxiliary steam vessel ran pay on a foreign voyage, that does not carry her coal fur the ichole distance. The two or three ot the lot that can steam twelve knots must look for customers in the large mail companies, and take what price they can get for them. The small er class of screws on sale, from 400 to 800 tons, will be absorbed bv the coasting and continental trade in time; but the north of Europe, and other kin dred companies, have so swamped the market that a considerable time must elapse before the brokers' lists are seriously diminished. Their holders are, however, in a better plight than the holders of large steamers; for one purchaser of a two-thou sand there are twenty fur an eight hundred-ton screw. Is screw steaming at an end, then? Far from it! The joint stock companies'banks, who have been the principal means of creating the surplus of ill adapted screws, are for the time done for; but the legitimate trader will goon gradually and profita bly developing steam navigation, using his expe rience, and what is of equal consequence to success, his own money, in constructing the best description of vessel for the particular trade she is required for, until, in the progress of time, a new generation of directors and their dupes get up steam navigation companies, raise prices 50 per cent, in all building funds, pay sham dividends, build in twelve months what ought to have been spread over ten years, spoil legitimate trading, finally go out in bank ruptcy,and glut the steamboat market, as it now is! THE HOUSE OF PRUSSIA. The crisis in Prussia, for some time anticipated, has passed quietly. The sceptre has fallen, almost without observation, from the hands of Frederick William lA'., and his history as a reigning sove reign of Europe may be considered as written. — The King, by his own act, has conferred the regen cy, and virtually full authority to exercise the royal functions, upon his brother William Louis, whose reign has actually commenced. In the de cree by which he has thus resigned his power, Frederick William, to he sure, regards it as a tem porary measure, and anticipates the time when he shall resume the functions ofhis royal calling. AH accounts agree, however, that the malady which has occasioned this dynastic change is such as to render the King's recovery hopeless, and therefore to make the change permanent. It is not anticipated that with this change of sovereigns there will be any fundamental change in the policy of the Prussian government. It is be lieved, however, that constitutional freedom will be advanced, and that under the new regime Prus sia, in its relations to Germany, will become more and more the country of progress and of liberal po litical institutions. Frederick William IV. is but sixty-three years of age, having been born on the 15th day of Octo ber, 1795. He ascended the throne of Prussia in 1840. His reign lias not been without the usual vicissitudes, hut has generally been distinguished by success. AA'illiam Louis, upon whom the gov ernment lias devolved, is the elder brother of the king, and the oldest of six brothers and sisters. He is the father of the young prince who has just be come allied to the reigning house of Great Britain by his marriage with the eldest daughter of Queen A'ictoria. He is only seventeen months younger than the king, having been born on the 22d of March, 1797. He married the daughter of the late Grand Duke of Saxe-Wcitnar. The other brothers and sisters of the king are : Charlotte, horn July, 1798, and now widow of the late Czar Nicholas and Empress dowager of Russia; Charles, horn June, 1801, who also married a daughter of the late Grand Duke of Saxe-AVeimar; Alexandria, born February, 1803, and now Grand Duchess Dowager of Meck lenburg-Schwerin, having been married to Prince Frederick in 1820; Louisa, born February, 1808, and married to Prince Frederick of the Netherlands; and Albert, born October, 1809, who married Alari ana, daughter of the late King William I. of Hol land, but was divorced from her, on aceount of adul tery, after a union of nineteen years. The house of Prussia has more extensive and more important family connections than almost any other royal line in Europe, being nearly related to the reigning houses of Great Britain, Russia, Hol land, Bavaria, Austria, Saxony, Hanover, Baden, and other reigning families of minor power. The Ilohenzollern sovereigns are connected with the house of Brunswick, now on the English throne, not merely by the recent marriage of the young Prince of Prussia with the Princess Royaloorl r Eng land, but by earlier alliances than any other prince ly line. The second King of Prussia, Frederick William 1., was married to a daughter of George L, when George was as yet only Elector of Hanover. After George ascended the English throne, a double marriage between the Prince of AVales and the Princess Wilhelmina of Prussia, and Prince Fred erick, (afterwards Frederick the Great,) and the English Princess Amelia, who projected, and was on the eve of being concluded, when secret Austrian machinations interrupted and finally broke the good understanding between the two sovereigns. Frede rick the Great is said ever afterwards to have deplored this; and he certainly had good reason for his regrets, for the wife which his despotic father subsequently provided him was all but an idiot.— Boston Courier. THE TARAIY—GENERAL ORDERS, NO. 21. IIEADQUATERS OF THE ARMY, New A'ork, Nov. 6, 1858, I. In accordance with the instructions from the Secretary of War, the six companies of the first cavalry, now at Fort Leavenworth, will bo posted at Fort Smith, Washita, and Riley, two companies at each post. The commander of the Department of tho AV est will designate the particular companies, and give the necessary orders for their march across the country. Assistant Surgeon Charles 11. I'age, now at Fort Leavenworth, will accompany the companies of the first cavalry to Forts Smith and AVashita, taking post at the latter named station. 11. The following decision of the Secretary of AVar respecting the jurisdiction of garrisons courts martial in certain cases, is published for general in formation: I have examined the cases of Sergeant Stewart and Corporal Underbill, to which my attention is brought by the General commanding the army. It appears that they were tried and convicted by garrison court-martial on a charge of "disobedi ence of orders:" and that execution of the sentence confirmed by the garrison commander was suspend ed by special order of the commander of the de partment, in pursuance of a general order from the headquarters of the army, Alay 8, 1852, denying the jurisdiction of a garrison court of such charge! The question is not clear upon the authority of the text-writers. But I incline to the opinion of the General-in-chicf. Certainly, ir "disobedience of orders" means "disobedience of a lawful command of a superior officer in the execution of his office," it is a "capital ease," and not triable by a garrison court, and, however that may be. the order of the General-in-chief is mandatory to garrison comman ders, and does, in effect, forbid any such comman der to send any such case to a garrison court, or to execute their sentence in each case. These pro ceedings, in violation of his order, are null and To ' d / „ J. 11. FLOYD. AV AU DEPARTMENT, November 1, 1858. HI. Sergeant. J.

TEA AND OTHER PLANTS OF CHINA.— The Cornmis sioner ot I a tents lias received advices from Mr. fortune, dated Shanghai, August 10, accompanied by three packages of seed. The largest package contains a species of Rrassica. which is cultivated largely in the province of Chekiang for its oil which is expressed from the seeds. The Chinese esteem it highly for burning in lamps, as well as for culinary purposes. The Ningo ladies use it as a hair oil. The other packets contain two varieties of a kind of turnip-raddish, called "lobba" by the natives. Since the Ist of March, Air. Fortune has visited various great tea districts, and made arrangements with the natives for large supplies of tea and other seeds and plants at the proper season. The unsettled state of the country does not ap pear to have interfered with his plaiis in the slight est degree. Ho has been kindly received by the people everywhere.— States. According to one statement, Miss Richmond was absorbed in the perusal of a book, and unconscious ly walked over the edge of the precipice; another account states that she was endeavoring to gather one of the rock plants, which grow in the crevices of the limestone formation, and in her efforts to reach it overbalanced herself, and fell. She Iwas mashed almost literally to pieces. PRICE TWO CENTS THE NAVAJO INDIANS. A very excellent account, of these Indiana ap pears iu* the last number of the Dovlestown (ra.) Urmorrat, fiom the pen of Major Davis, for some years acting Governor of the Territory of New Mexico: In many respects the N'avajos are the most in teresting tribe of Indians in our country, ana their history, manners, and customs are not un worthy an investigation. They appear superior in intelligence to all the other North American tribes, and differ from them in their habits and traditions. They live in the very heart of the continent, and from time immemorial have roamed over both the Pacific and Atlantic slopes. They have ever been known as a pastoral aud peaceful race of men, and live by raising flocks and herds, instead of hunting and fishing. They own some two hundred thousand sheep, and more than ten thousand head of horses, and at times one single chief is worth as much as fifteen thousand dollars in stock, owning thousands of sheep and hundreds of horses. They raise corn , wheat, beans, pumpkins, melons, peaches, wild potatoes, etc. They sometimes grow as many as sixty thousand bushels of corn in a single season, and the present year (1858) they are supposed to have live thousand acres under cultivation. They number about twelve thousand souls, and can mus ter twenty-five hundred mounted warriors. Tbey are industrious and laborious, and the men, women, and children are generally kept employed. They manufacture all their own wearing apparel, and make their arms, such as bows, arrows, and lances; they also weave a beautiful article of blankets, and knit woolen stockings. They dress with greater comfort than any other tribe, and wear woolen and well tanned buckskin. The skin breeches come down to the knees, where they are met by blue stockings that cover the lower half of the leg; the breeches tit tight to the limb, and the outer seams are adorned with silver or brass buttons. The coat reaches below thehips,with ahole at thetop to thrust the head through, and open at the sides; it is made of wool, woven in brightcolors. and is fastened around the waist by a leather belt, highly ornamented with silver when the wearer can afford it. They wear numerous strings of fine coral, and many valuable belts of silver, and generally appear with a hand some blanket thrown over the shoulder in the style of a mantle. The Navajo Indian is seldom seen on foot, a horse being as indispensable to him as to an Arab of the desert. They manufacture their own saddles and bridles, bits, stirrups, etc., as also the looms on which they weave their handsome blankets, which are quite an ingenious affair. It is a noted fact that they treat their women with more respect than any other tribe, and make companions of them instead of slaves. A Navajo never sends his wit's to saddle bis horse, but does it himself if he has no peon. The modern doctrine of "Woman's Rights" may be said to prevail among them to a very general extent. The women are the real owners of all the sheep, and the men dare not dis pose of them without their permission; nor do the husbands ever make an important bargain without first consulting their wives. They admit women into their councils, who sometimes control their deliberations; and they also eat with them. Tliey are mild in disposition, and very seldom commit murder; but they consider theft one of the greatest human virtues, and no one is thought to be at all accomplished unless he can steal with adroitness. FROM RIO DE JANEIRO. —The New York Tribune lias papers from Rio de Janeiro to October 5. The weather has been very severe all over the empire, and heavy gales of wind and storms of rain had prevailed. Dates from Pernambuco to September •22 give the following version of the difficulty there between the French Consul and the President of the Prov ince : "A French subject, named Chardon, having died, leaving orphan children, the proper Judge under took to make an inventory of his effects. To this the Consul objected, asserting that it was his busi ness to take charge of the property of the deceased. Quite a correspondence followed, and the President of the Province, Sr. Jaqucs, decided the question in accordance with the opinion of the Judge of Or phans. The Consul protested at the decision, which disinterested persons declared to have been just, and suspended his relations with the Presidency, going so far as to forbid the French vessels in port to hoist the Brazilian colors 011 the 7th of Septem ber —the national holiday. The affair remains in this state, awaiting the decision of the General Government." According to observations made at the Marine Arsenal in Pernambuco, the great solar eclipse commenced there 011 Sept. (i, at 22 hours 27 min utes 47 seconds; reached its greatest obscuration on the same day at 23 hours 39 minutes 211 seconds, and terminated on Sept. 7, at 0 hour 51 minutes 10 seconds. The surface of the sun obscured was 10 minutes 3fi seconds 6or 40 digits. After the eclipse the weather for live or six days was of the most rigorous description, and copious rains fell inces santly. All the rivers in the northern part of the empire had overflowed their banks, and the cane plantations had been severely damaged. Travel 011 the Pernambuco Railroad was suspended for a day on account of the freshets. The exports of Coffee during the month of Sep tember reached 213,072 bags. During the lirst five days of October the exports were 31,180 bags, of which 14,002 were shipped on the sth, nearly all for the United States. Cleared Oct. 4, for Baltimore, bark Winifred, with 4,380 bags coffee; for New York, bark Roe buck, with 5,077 bags coffee. A LIVING MAN'S HEART OPEN TO IN SPECTION. Some three years ago our physicians witnessed the process of digestion through an orifice left by a gun-shot wound in the abdomen of Alexis St. Mar tin. But a greater curiosity was yesterday exhibi ted to the students of the University Medical Col lege at the hour of Prof. Mott's clinique. It was a case of deficiency of the sternum (breast bone), which enables the several movements of the heart to be seen. It has excited intense interest for several years past throughout the cities of Europe and Britain. The subject of the defect is a very in telligent gentleman, M. Groux, a native of Ham burg, twenty-eight years of age, somewhat under the average height and rather pale, though he ap pears to be in health. He was introduced by Dr. Mott. who thought that the substance which occu pied the place of the sternum might be cartilage. M. Groux then showed the peculiar conformitv"of his chest and gave an excellent lecture oh the heart's action, demonstrating his remarks with col ored plates, an artifical heart and his own body. The collar bones are not connected, (neither are the ribs to their opposites,) but there is a groove where the sternum should be; the skill is natural. In its natural state this groove is about an inch and a half wide, but it can be distended to three inches. 011 looking at the groove a pulsatile swelling is dis cernable opposite the third and fourth ribs; if respi ration be suspended it rapidly rises to an enormous extent, and remains full and tense until the breath ing is restored, when it soon subsides. This is the heart. Between the clavicles there is another pul satile swelling, easily felt, which is the aorta, the great artery from the heart. .The dilatation and contraction of the lung is also seen. In coughing, the right lung suddenly protrudes from the chest through the groove, and ascends a considerable dis tance above the right clavicle into the neck. The technical details of these wonderful disclo sures will interest professional men, and to general readers of physiology the sight will be extremely interesting. It would be well if it could be exhibit ed in all public schools. M. Groux remembers being taken by his family doctor to a medical society in Hamburg, when about two years old, but he did not know for what; nor did the full importance of his case occur to him till he was over twenty years ol age. In 1849, while on a visit to London, he was attacked with cholera, and then it was that his defect was made known to the profession. He was shown to several distinguished medical men as a great curiosity, and was advised to travel through Europe for the bene fit of the profession. Not long after, while attend ing to his business, which was very confining, he was attacked with hmmoptisis (spitting of blood). He then concluded to abandon his occupation and follow the suggestion often made to him, viz: to travel and show himself to the medical men of the countries of Europe, Britain, and now of America. He has an album of two volumes, which are nearly filled with the autographs of the chief members o'f all the important medical societies and universities of Europe, from St. Petersburg to Madrid, and from Vienna to Galwav, testifying to their great interest in the case. The signatures of professors and celebrities who have examined him number over two thousand. At the close of his lecture yesterday Or. Mott pro posed a collection in M. Uroux's behalf, though his regular fee had been paid by the faculty.— Scarcely had he said the word when the silver be gan to fly into the arena from the seats of the vast amphitheatre. Nearly all the three hundred stu dents were present, and the shower of quarters greatly jeoparded the lecturer (Dr. Mott) and his attendants, together with Dr. Alexander B. Mott, who seemed to be a target in the innocent amuse ment. We were favored this morning with a call from M. Groux, the congenital fissure of whose sternum created such interest at the Medical College to-day. Ilis case is a most remarkable one, and is a rare op portunity for studying, ex visit, the actions of the heart, great vessels, and lungs. It solves several doubtful questions in regard to the action of the heart, and gives quite as vivid an idea of the great strength and vigorous movements of the "little life-machine," as if the ribs were cut away and it exposed; more vivid indeed, for in the latter case there would be no action such as is now plainly visible under all conditions of the system, beneath only a thin veil of tlesli. Somebody's desire that there might be a window in the breast of all men, or Charles Lamb's equiva lent, a pane in thestomach, seems nearly realized in M. Uroux's case.—JV. Y. Evening Post.
