PRACI/T, fllonclanr anil CffUtoal gcbicto. BALTIMORE, November '27, 1858. Stocks were moderately active again to-dav, the transactions at the Board amounting in value to nearly $60.000, the bulk being in railroad shares.— Of Northern Central Railway there were 1,535 shares sold at $24 regular way, and at-thc same tigure buyer's option 10 and 30 days, and the mar ket for it closed at $23% bid, $24 asked regular way. Baltimore and Ohio Railroad dropped oil'to day half a dollar per share. There were sales at the Board of 1833 shares at $57 regular way, and 50 shares at $57 buyer's option GO days. The stock left off at $50% bid, $57 asked regular way, and $57 bid, $57 1 i asked buyer GO days. The only sale of railroad bonds made was one of SI,OOO North western Virginia endorsed third mortgage at 08%. Baltimore city G's continue lirm. \\ e note sales to day of $5,000 1890's at 99, and $775 do. at 99%. Saies also of 150 shares Springfield Mining Com pany at $2.06%. Canton closed at $20% bid, $20% asked, Uatapsco Company at $2% bid, $3 asked, and Santa Clara Mining at 517% hid, $18)4 asked regular way. There are but few Bank stocks offer ing. and the market for them is quite tirui. Virginia G's advanced to-day in New York %, but the fancies were generally lower. K.ie and New York Central declined % , Cleveland and To ledo %. and Reading aud Galena and Chicago %. The Neu> York Pout, of Saturday evening, says : The heaviness in stocks which has ruled throughout the week in still very marked to-day, and the Bear party fol low the market down with considerable confidence. The firmness in a few descriptions noticed in yesterday's deal ings has quite disappeared, and the fall is participated in by all the railway shares, the prices of State stocks and the reliable ciass of bonds only being maintained. The feature of the market was the decline ot three per cent, in Illinois Central shares, under the apprehension of another call of twenty per cent. We do not understand that the President or Dircc'.ors have expressed the opinion that no money would be needed during the year 1859, but that on the contrary an assessment of five dollars per share would be necessary in time to pay the March and April interest, unless ome other arrangement is made for the mon y by the Lond >n Committee. We understand from Mr. V\ 111. Smith's letter that they propose to do this, as this will, probably, be about all that will be required d uring the year 1859, taking the earnings of 1556 aud 1857 as a basis. We understand that it was upon this basis that the estimates were made. The downward movement was also very decided on New York Central, Reading and Michigan Southern Guaranteed. The sales of the first reached 3,000 shares, of the secoi d 5.000 shares. Pacific Mail was steady at 103. Delaware and Hudson Canal at 9R#. Erie bonds were firm. The Second Mortgage brought 85. The transactions in State stocks were very limited. The tendency of the money market during the week has been to increased ease. The unsettled and unsatisfactory condition of the stock market has necessitated a curtail ment of loans on the part of several heavy brokers, which, in connection with the decline in the specie movement southward, has increased the supply on offer, and rates for demand loans arc # per cent, cheaper than on last Satur day Discounts are without any noticeable change, being less subject to the daily fluctuations in the supply of capital. There is nothing doing in foreign exchange.

Mary- j land and Virginia bonds have been most in request.whilst | some large purchases have been made of the new Federal j five per cent, bonds.

The report that a reduction of the French ar ray wa3 under consideration causes for a time some ani mation and a rise of # percent, in Consols, but subse quently there was less confidence and a partial reaction ensued. On Friday, the 12th, the market was steady, and Consols closed at 9S#@9B# for money and 98#@98# for account. In the discount market the demand for money was steady at 2# per cent., a-; the minimum rate. In the Stock Exchange there had been rather an increased sup ply of money and some considerable loans were negotia ted on Government Securities at 2 per cent. The suspension was announced of Messrs. W. J. Grey & Sons, of Xewcastle-on-Tyne.coal fitters. Liabilities not Stated. The London Agents of the Illinois Central Railway Company had communicat d to the stockholders the fol lowing letter, addressed to them by a member of the re cent deputation sent from London to New York : LONDON, NOV. 10,1858. GENTLEMEN: AS numerous inquiries have. I under stand, been made as to the result of the mission to the Illinois Central Board, with which I was (with Mr. Wheeler) charged by the London Committee of Share holders, I think it may be useful, in the absence of the Chairman and the larger part of the Committee, to inform you that, owing to my time having been so incessantly occupied in the United States, I was not able to prepare my report until my return to England. 1 have sent a draft of it for the approval of ray colleague, (who resides in the country,) and it will be submitted to a meeting of a Committee which has been suinmoued for Tuesday next. I think it may be of interest to the shareholders to know in the meantime, that from the most careful estimates of the President (Mr. Osborn) up to the end of 1859, and from the best consideration which I have been able to give to the subject, I am led to the conclusion that no call will be needful during that period, hut that any deficiency oc casioned by the continuance of low prices of grain and de pression of trade may he provided for by the adoption of other and perfectly legitimate means. Yours, faithfully, WILLIAM SMITH. Messrs. R. Benson k Co. The weekly returns of the Bank of England show a de crease in the bullion and specie of £110.058. Messrs.

W. Satterthwaite's Circular says: "Money has been in rather more demand during the post week, the rate of discount being 2# a 3 percent. Withdrawals of gold have been less, and it seems proba ble that a portion at least of the large arrivals expected soon will remain here. Our Stock market has leen steady. Consols closing at 98#@98# for money, and 9S# @9B# for account. "There has been more disposition to buy American Se curities, which has been further stimulated by the extra ordinary advance reported from New York. Quotations here are still below New York prices, especially for Illi nois Central; the shares of this Company being dull at 22# dis., against 11 discount, ami the Construction bonds 82. against 97, subject to exchange: which appears very unaccountable. The report of the deputation to America on behalf of the London Committee has not yet been is sued." SALES AT THE BALTIMORE STOCK BOARD.

For Shipping Intelligence, see 4th page J LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT.—The following is an extract from the letter from Air. Buchanan, 1 read at the Pittsburg celebration on Thursday. , The cheerful prospect which he takes of the future will commend itself to all. From the stand point at which we have arrived, the anxious patriot cannot fail, whilst reviewing the past, to cast a glance into the future and to speculate upon what may be the condition of our beloved country, when your posterity shall assem ble to celebrate the second centennial' anniversary of the capture of Fort Duqncsne. Shall our whole country then compose one united nation more pop ulous, powerful and free than any other which has ever existed? Or will the confederacy have been rent asunder and divided into groups "of hostile and jealous States? Or may it not be possible tlia* ere the next celebration, all the fragments, exhausted by intermenate conflicts with each other, may have finally reunited and sought refuge under the shel ter of one great and overshadowing despotism? These questions will, I firmly believe, under the providence of God, be virtually decided bv the present generation. We have reached a' crisis when upon their action depends the preservation of the Union according to the letter and spirit of the constitution; and this once gone, all is lost. I regret to say that the present omens are far from propitious. in the last age of the Republic, it was considered almost treasonable to pronounce the word Disunion. Times have since sadlv changed, and now disunion is freely prescribed as the remedy for evanescent evils, real or imaginary, which if left to themselves would speedily vanish away in the progress of events. Our revolutionary fathers havp passed away, and the generation next after them who were inspired bv their personal counsel and example, have nearly all disappeared. SENATOR DOUGLAS. —Senator Douglas was ser enaded in St. Louis on Wednesday night last. In the course of his speech acknowledging the com pliment, he said: "Our political confederacy was sticceptible of improvement and expansion. If this doctrine of Popular Sovereignty is carried out, we can add new territory and make "new States without any difficulty. YVe can add to our possessions Mexico and Cuba, and all the territory adjacent.- - 'lt is the mission of the Democracy to expand,' said he. If other territory is required and demanded— he was willing to take it into the Union. This can not well be done unless Congress shall leave the people of those territories and countries to decide for themselves what they wish to do." THE ATLANTIC AND GREAT WESTERN RAILROAD.— Our readers are aware that this is a continuation of the New Y'ork and Erie. Gen. Ward, the Presi dent of the company, has returned from Europe, and is now passing over the line between Little Y'alley. New Y'ork. and Dayton, Ohio, in company with Mr. T. W. Kennard, an engineer sent out from England, and Mr. George F. Train, who re-' presents some capitalists who have subscribed or proposed to subscribe to a loan necessary for the construction of the work. YVe learn, from the Akron Beacon, that a large meeting was held in Akron, on Saturday evening. Mr. Kennard is re ported to have said that he had found no engineer ing difficulties on the route; that the character and resources of the country along the line exceeded the representations which had been made in Eng land by the friends of the road: that upon his re port capita'ists abroad were ready to advance the money ana means for the completion of the work; and that his report will be favorable. On Thursday evening last Mr. George Black and his wile were run over and killed, near Tarrytown, by the express train on the Hudson River Railroad, "hey were walking up the track, and it was some what dark at the time. The engineer did not know ot the accident until it was telegraphed to Pough keepsie. The British Government have awarded Captain Itenaud, ofthe French bark Maurice, a gold medal, in acknowledgment of the services rendered by him to the Hamburg steamer Austria, destroyed bv fire at sea on the 13th ult., one of the persons whom he rescued being a British subject. The number of inmates of the Philadelphia Alms house is 2,554, a decrease of 100 since this time las year. The number of persons receiving out door relief is 1,830.

TJIE STEAMER INDIAN EM FIRE STILL MISSING. PORTLAND, NOV. 28.—The steamer North Britain lias arrived here with Liverpool advices to the 17th inst. The steamer Kuropa, on her last outward trip, had to put into Queenstown, short of coal. Nothing has been heard of the steamer Indian Empire. There have been heavy gales on the English coast, and many marine disasters are reported. No Amer ican vessels, however, are named. The steamer Ariel arrived out on the 17th. The latest advices from India are unimportant. Fears were entertained at London of tiie safety of the shin Aquiconst, long over due from Australia with a large amount of treasure. The Times has a rather hopeful article on the At lantic telegraphic cable, and urges upon the direc tors the acceptance of Professor Hughes' offer to work it with his own instrument.

C., NOV. 27.—The United State Circuit Court met here to-day, Judges Wayne, Washington and McGraw, of South Carolina, pre siding. The charges to the Grand Jury were de livered, both Judges strongly impressing upon the jury the duty of impartially discharging their oaths of office, and while avoiding unfounded accusations, to sutler no personal sentiments or private feelings to deter them from presenting for investigation ev ery case where reasonable evidence of guilt exists. These charges, it is understood, were designed to meet the efforts making by certain parties to in duce the Grand Jury to refuse to bring in a bill against, the mate and crew ef the slaver Echo. Some delay occurred through the difficulty of get ting a full jury together. The probability is, that the action of the Grand Jury will be made known on Monday. The subject of the selection of a candidate for the seat in the Senate of the United States, left vacant by the death of Senator Evans, is nntv the promi nent question under discussion in political circles. Ex-Governor Adams is the favorite of "all those who desire agitating the question of the re-open ing of the slave trade, but R. Barnwell Rhett, Ex- Governor Manning, or Gen. McQueen, will most likely be the choice of the Legislature. Australian Tclrgraph Cable—Tiie "Hughes Instrument." NEW YORK, NO. 27. —Private advices from Eng land state that the telegraph cable for the Austra lian and Tasmanian line had been finished, and was to have been shipped on the 19th of November, under the superintendence of Wm. 11.

Howell Cobb, now Secretary of the 'Treasury, has accepted the position of Minister to France, 677')' /XTEh Lid I VALUABLE INVENTION. —IIenrv J. Rogers, Esq., of this city, has recently invented a sub-marine cord, designed to convey a current of electricity through deep sea soundings. The piece of cord shown us is not quite a half inch in diameter, and lias been prepared solely to give an idea of the principle upon which the invention relies for success. It is composed of a single copper wire, over whicli is a coating of well prepared guttapercha; over the whole is a plaited covering of twisted hemp or cotton thread, which i 3 coaled with a marine paint or varnish, impervious to water. It is said that the Atlantic cable, encased in its mail of iron wire, when being paid out, oftentimes kink ed, and that then this wire casing, un twisted and left exposed toe gutta percha in sulation, which, most likely, at almost every kink, was strained and cracked, and hence per mitted an escape of the electric current. The cord made by Mr. Rogers is designed to obviate this ob jection; the outer covering of hemp is twisted upon the gutta percha from opposite directions, lessening the liability of kinking, and even if that should hap pen, the flexibility and compactness of the cord is such that it cannot untwist, and therefore the ir.ner coating or insulation of the wire cannot be exposed or strained. This cord is much lighter than any subma rine cable heretofore manufactured, and. therefore, can be handled ami stowed away much more readily. Lieut. Maury, of the United States Navy, who lias examined it, addressed a letter to the inventor, in which he says: "It it just the thing for the purpose intended," and proceeds to give his reasons for say ing so, which, to a person conversant at all with the matter, are most plausible. ACCIDENTS.—On Friday afternoon last, as one of the freight trains was leaving Camden Station for Mount Clare, a youth, about fourteen years of age, named John Lambert,who resides on South Charles street, Federal Hill, jumped upon the last car in the train, with the intention of riding a short distance.

The second lecture of the Course of the Library Association of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was delivered on last Wednesday evening, by 18. 'l'eackle : Wallis, Esq. Tbc subject of the lecture was, The /ori< and uses of Speech, us indicating and affecting j National Character. Language was treated as a monument and a teacher—as a reflection ofthepeo- I pie who use it, and as in its turn, influencing and i fashioning the thoughts and sentiments of men. | The history of a nation is to be learned far more | accurately from tile monuments which it leaves be | hind it, than from the books of its chroniclers. ' Language i 3 one of the most durable of such monu ments, and is a far truer historian than the records i which tnen make in its words. The fidelity with j which language reflects national traits and charac- I teristics was illustrated by the different words which different nations had hit upon to express the i idea of rivalry or competition in business. The French, Spaniards, and Italians had borrowed from | the Latin, the words concurrentia, concurrence, sig | nifving running trith or alongside of each other. That was their idea of competition. The Anglo j Saxon, from the same Latin source, had selected the word opposition, meaning to run not with or I alongside of his rival, but against him. Attention I was next called to what Dean Trench has styled i "the morality in words"—the morality which they ! teach, as well as that which they represent, j The natibnal tendency to hyperbole and exag j geration was illustrated by numerous common ex pressions in daily use ainoug us, which involve de parture from the standard of truth. With individ ual instauces of falsehood, hypocrisy and deception the lecture* had no concern. ni3 endeavor was, he said, to test and weigh the current coin of the whole community, which all men give and all men take— a debased currency, made standard by a demoralized public opinion. As an illustration of this corruption of language, and of that demoralization of thought from which it proceeds. The popular phrase "ma king capital," particularly "political capital," was cited. The national tendency to run into extreme opinions was next touched upon, and the Lecturer here took occasion to refer to the congressional, obituary speeches, and said it would be curious to look at these documents for the last twenty years and see bow large a number of "great men" and "sages" we have lost, and how many voids there have been in the National Councils that never could be filled, but which, if we judge from the ovations to new comers, were more than filled the next day. The evil effect of all this was alluded to—the conse quent confusion of right and wrong, truth and falsehood, and the corruption of public taste by lowering its standard of truth and virtue, and teaching it to acqusece in what is known to be an imposture. The evanescent and ephemeral character of the literature most admired in our country was commented upon, and reference made to the good service which literary art was rendering abroad to the cause of public morals, by illustrating and ex posing social vices and follies, in works of well or dered fiction. Mr. Thackeray's novels were cited as the best illus trations of ttiis kind of writing, and the wish was expressed that an American Thackeray—born on our own soil—knowing us well—knowing our faults and loving us well in spite of them—might arise to lay bare our national and social pretensions aud im postures, and make us so ashamed of them, that we should grow wiser and better. The want of a Punch in our periodical literature—to laugh at us, and scourge us, was also alluded to— and the claims of satire and ridicule, to be consider ed as part of the detective police of truth, asserted and defended. The example and the history of the old Republics were referred to, for our admonition md our warning. The downfall of their freedom and their greatness was preceded and occasioned by just such vices and corruptions as we are now be ginning to manifest —when in the spread of power, and growth of empire, the swell and outbreak of luxury and corruption debased the organs of pub lic speech, and they in their turn, sent back upon the people the tide of their own corruption. The facility with which good men acquiesce in this state of public demoralization, and the apathy which they manifest with respect to any remedial measures that may be proposed, were next advert ed to, and gave occasion for a word or two of prac tical suggestion and remonstrance in conclusion— of remonstrance against the practice, which every where prevails, of paying that homage to falsehood ar.d vice which is due only to truth and virtue—of of suggestion, to the effect, that the mere with drawal of good men's countenance and support would o' itself be death to folly and imposture. DR. CONK S THIRD LECTURE. The Rev. Dr. Coxe delivered, on Thursday even ing last, at the Monument Assembly Rooms, corner of Centre and St. Paul streets, the third lecture of the course—on English Poetry—for the benefit of the Church Home and Infirmary. His previous lecture having been upon the subject of the Old English Ballads, he occupied the attention of his auditors, on this occasion, exclusively, with a criti cal reading of the famous ballad of "Adam Bel, Clym of the Cloughe, and Wyllyam of Clottdesle," prefaced by a few introductory remarks. This, be said, was the finest specimen of English ballad poe try extant. In the ballad of Chevy Chase there were, perhaps, passages to be found of more stirring interest, but in Adam Bel there were a greater va riety of beautiful thoughts, and more happy and natural illustrations of character. The oldest printed copy of thi3 ballad was dated 1670, but nothing further is known of its history or origin. The bold and daring robbers, the story of whose adventures it relates, must have lived iu the green-wood of the north of England, in the reign of Henry 2d. Bishop Percy in his "Reliques" points out various allusions to this ballad, made by different authors, among whom he mentions Shak speare, who seems to refer to Adam Bel, in Aluch- Ado-About-Xuthing, and also in Rotneo and Juliet. The lecturer then read the entire ballad, explaining, as he proceeded, its quaint and obsolete expressions. The subject of the fourth lecture to be delivered at the same place on Thursday evening next, was an nounced to be " Chancer and his times." THE CARS-HERUAN TREATY. —The treaty negotiated between General Cass and Senor Herran, for the settlement of the questions growing out of the Pan ama outrage, says the Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia North American, will be submitted to the Senate for ratification, in the form in which it was amended by New Granada. The Minister ad dressed an explanatory letter to the Government, which relieves the modifications of their objectiona ble features; and mean time New Granada has agreed to suspend the collection of the onerous tolls claimed to he imposed on the mail and other matter passing over the Isthmus. In fact, the officers of our squad ron have been instructed, in the last resort, to resist these levies by force, should they be at tempted. So that the New Granada dfliculty, which has first and last so much exercised the public mind, may bo regarded as definitely settled, and the Presi dent will inform the country of that fact in his an nual message. MARYLAND COAL TRADE. —For the week ending Saturday, November 20, 6,040.11 tons of coal were shipped over the Cumberland and Pennsyl vania Railroad, 4,047.11 tons over the road of the George's Creek Coal and Iron Company, 5.312.19 over the road of the Cumberland Coal and Iron Company, and 1,432.11 tons over the Hampshire Coal ami Iron Company's road, making an ag gregate for the week l'rom the whole coal region of 17,433.12 tons.

J., on Friday night, on their way home from New Y'ork, and the firemen received them with a torchlight procession, and after the pa rade a sumptuous collation. On Thursday evening last conversation was car ried on by the telegraphic operators in the New Y'ork, Washington, Mobile and New Orleans offices. There was a complete circuit between Wall street and the St. Charles Hotel—l,7oo miles. The Masonic Temple at Chicago has passed into tiie hands of mortgagees. It was built by the issue of stockshares, and the original proprietors are said to have lost heavilv. The people of Buffalo have voted in favor of the proposition to grant the aid of the city to an inter national bridge across the Niagara river, to the ex tent of $50,000 per annum, which is the interest lia bility on the cost of the project—s2,soo,ooo. The'olficers of the uniformed volunteer companies of North Carolina, will meet at Raleigh on the first Monday in December, to devise means for securing greater attention to military matters by the young men of the State.

The Indian Empire, three weeks out, from New York to Gal way, had not been heard of at Liver pool. She was three weeks from New York, but as she put into Halifax for some slight repairs and coal, and did not leave port until late on the evening of October 29th, she bad been out but a little over 12 days when the Africa left. GREAT BRITAIN. The submarine telegraph cable between Dover and Calais had been repaired, ar.d was again in working order. A deputation of official gentlemen from the Brit ish North American provinces, including members of the Government of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, had had an official interview with Sir E. Bulwer Lytton, the Colonial Secretary. Meetings in aid of the new Reform movement continued to be held in various parts of England. The American consul at Bremen had received from the United States, and presented to the party for whom it was intended, a handsome silver sneak ing trumpet, bearing the following inscription: "The President of the United States to Captain Wilmsen, of the Bremen bark Laura, for his humane, zealous, and successful efforts in rescuing one of the passengers and two of the crew of the steamer Central America, from the perils of the sea, 1858."

Mr. Whitehouse again writes to the Atlantic Telegraph Company and after asserting that experi ment has shown the falacy of former tests, and re iterating his belief that the fault is near the shore, he savs: "I turn now with pleasure to recount to the di rectors an incident which I have learned since my arrival at Valentia, and which, I doubt not, they will learn with equal gratification. Shortly after the repairs had been effected, to which allusion has already been made, and when the cable was in its most perfect working order, the superintendent at Newfoundland, where all the official messages of the day had been worked off*, gave permission, in order to keep the clerks employed, for the exchange of conversational intercourse between Newfound land and Valentia for a time. Freed thus from the fear of any responsibility attaching to errors from carelessness or haste, the clerks on dutv manipula ted at a higher speed thau had ever before been at tained, Newfoundland using my instruments and inducting coils for transmission, while Valentia re ceived the signals on Thomson's galvanometer, aud recorded by finger key upon paper; the station clock marked the time upon the paper in hours, half-hours, as well as minutes, so that there can be no error in the computation of speed. I have carefully examined the record then made. The signals are perfect, and the rate at which for a length of time that conversation was kept up in words at full length, was such (if that speed alone could be maintained, and I am confident it can even be increased) as would enable the directors, after the payment of all working expenses, to declare a dividend at the rate often per cent, per annum upon the present capital while laying aside, within twelve months, a reserve 0f£50,000. This compu tation is made for the six working days only, al lowing a margin of four lir.urs per diem for una voidable delays and interruptions. "These facts and these figures, together with the calculations upon which they are based, I am pre pared at any time to submit and to substantiate be fore the directors and shareholders, and this is the condition to which 1 still believe the cable admits of being again safely and easily restored at an early dav." The Hughes printing telegraph lias been tried with the utmost success on the Australian and Tasinanian cable now ready for shipment from Eng land. The machines are to go out with, and to be used on the line. Prince Alfred, as midshipman on board the Eury alus, had arrived at Lisbon anil would visit the King of Portugal.

The London Timer says in its city article: "Ac cording to a statement received from Madrid the Spanish Government seem likely to order their fleet at Cuba to proceed at once to demand satisfaction from Mexico on the matter indispu'e between these two countries. Probably the countenance of the French Government, who are likewise reported to to have sent additional ships-of-war to that point, is relied upon in this movement, while it is also known that England has serious demands to urge, which will cause her to insist upon redress at least equal to that which may be accorded in other cases." A telegram from Madrid states that a Spanish fleet, consisting of eight steamers, sailed from Ca diz on the 10th for Tangiers. It is added that the fleet has orders, after presenting the demand of the Spanish Government upon Morocco, to scour the coast of Africa and destroy all vessels manned by the Riff Moors, which maybe found without regu lar papers, and treat them as pirates.

It was believed thai a large offer would not be refused by the Prince ol Monaco. , The Russian ambassador to Japan had arrived a( Marseilles with an advantageous treaty which he had succeeded in negotiating. The Emperor Alexander had addressed the no bility of Moscow in grave and severe terms on the apathy they have displayed in reference to the abo lition of serfdom. A deputation of the nobility of Moscow having been introduced to the Czar, in the Kremlin, he said it was impossible to thank them for their co operation. They had neither been the first, noi the second, nor the third, to answer to his appeal This had grieved him profoundly. The eyes o, Russia were, be said, fixed on Moscow. He askec them to give him the opportunity of defending them, "1 am," he said, "attached to the nobility, but J desire tbe general good." A letter from St Petersburg says it is evident that the nobility silently oppose the wisties of the Emperor. The people of Russia have an unbound ed confidence in the Czar. This alone prevents 8 terrible outbreak. The Russian Gazette of St. Petersburg, of Octo ber 20, gives an account of the election of munici pal councillors by the inhabitants of two villages in the supurbs of St. Petersburg.

PETERSBURG, NOV. 3. —lt is now certain that a society of foreign (especially Dutch) capitalists has actually offered to construct a railway from the Cas pian Sea to the very borders of India. The minutes of this grand plan have not yet transpired. Should it ever be realized, it is believed here, bv dilettanti politicians, the possession of India by tne English would be in the highest degree endangered. This, however, refers to a —in every case -distant future. The present question is how the idea could at ail have been conceived, at a time when neither Kho rassan nor Central Tartary obeys the Russian sway. Or are they, perhaps, similar to what was the case with the A moor provinces, already Russian without the world knowing anything about it? All we aro able to say is that Khorassan even now is being scoured by a numerous Russian expedition, and that High Tartary has not yet ceased to be the scene of a rebellion against the Chinese government. f Tur>v (.Vbe. Hj corresjmndencf of thf London AVwj.] The Marquis Sauli, Sardinian Minister at St. Pe tersburg, a man of considerable learning and a friend of liberal principles, is at present here. Ha affirms without hesitation that duringthe two years of Alexander's reign Russia had been enabled not only to congratulate herself on the the commence ment of the emancipation of the serfs, but on a gen eral progress and reform in everything. He says, in deed, that the moral status of the Russians has under gone a profound alteration, and could now scarcely be recognized for what it used to be; and this im provement has been effected notwithstanding that all the official posts of any consequence, and all the most coveted dignities of the State, remain still in the bands of the creatures of Nicholas, who, during his reign of twenty years, did nothing else than to stamp his own inexorable will upon everything and mould all men to his own shape. The Marquis Sauli has now apprised the Minister of the speedy arrival in Piedmont of the Grand Duke Constantine, whose resentment against Aus tria is expressed upon every occasion in phrases of a soldierly frankness and energy.

The San Francisco Herald of October 16th. after speaking of the doubts as to the intention of the Chinese Government to abide by the treaty with England, and giving the particulars of an attack on Mamtow, says: China is an Empire of vast extent, and it requires a long time to communicate orders from the capi tal to the officials of small towns. At Mantow.it is uncertain whether they heard a treaty had heen signed, and they were without instructions from Pekin as to the manner Europeans were to be treat ed. Seeing a party approach the citv, thev were resisted as enemies, and driven back. 'The English retaliated, and the ailair, after some explanation with Hawang, will be settled and forgotten. The Home Government is certain to ratify the treaty, and notwithstanding the fears of the colonial jour nals, its provisions will be enforced. The Chinese must fulfill their pai tof the agreement. The civi lized parties to it having the power, will enforce compliance, if necessary.
