BAI.TIMORK, November 30, 1858.
Stocks wore less active to-day tlian on yesterday
but there was nevertheless a fair amount of busi
ness done at the Board. The leading stock, Balti.
more and Ohio Railroad, was decidedly better, the
sales showing an improvement in it to-day of half a
dollar per share. There were 715 shares sold at the
Bond at $57 cash, and at the same figure seller GO
after 30, and buyer's option GO days, and it closed
firm at $56% bid, 557 asked regular way. There is
an evident scarcity of cash stock, which is indi
cated by the cash and time sales being made at the
same fig ure, and this fact tends to rather strengthen
the market. Northern Central Railway was quiet
to-day, and the market for it rather heavy. There !
were 424 shares sold at $23% buyer GO days,and from
$23% down to $23% cash, and it left off at $23% j
bid, $21!% asked regular way. Canton closed to- i
day at $20% bid, S2l asked, Santa Clara Mining at
sls% bid. S2O asked, and Springfield Mining at $2
bid, $2.18% asked regular way. Railroad bonds
are steady at about previous rates. The sales to. ■
day include $2,000 Baltimore and Ohio 1885's at '
84%, $3,000 Northern Central 188.Vs at 73%@73%, i
closing at the latter figure, and $3,000 Northwestern
Virginia unendorsed third mortgage bonds at 35.
There was a sale at the Board of S3OO Baltimore (
city G's 1800 at 08%, which is a decline. Bank '
stocks continue firm. We note sales of 23 shares j
Farmers' and Merchants' at $lO%.
At New York to-day stocks were rather irregular.
Erie advanced at the first board %, but fell off again
at the second %. Missouri G's advanced %; New
York Central %; Reading and Michigan Southern
declined %, and Galena and Chicago %, and the
market closed heavy.
The Foreign Exchange market at New York is
firmer without much activity. Sterling is quoted I
at 100%@101' 1 i for bankers' bills, and 10814(510!)%
for commercial signatures. Francsat 5.20(0)5.10%.
The New York hank statement which we annex,
is, upon the whole, more satisfactory than was gen
erally expected. The specie column, notwithstand
ing the heavy shipments to the South during the i
week, shows an augmentation of $366,916, and the j
loans a slight decrease. The net deposits have de
creased 51,211,720. The returns, as compared with
those of the week ending November 20, are as
follows:

The Board of Directors of the Pacific Mail Steam-
ship Company have declared a dividend often per
cent, of the profits, payable to the stockholders of
the Company on and after Saturday, Dec. 4.
The increased earnings of the Erie Railroad for
November are reported at S7s,ooo(®sßo,tioo over
those of November of last year. This fact it is sup
posed has been the cause of the recent advance of
the stock in New York.
THE BAY STATE MII.ES.—The "Committee of Creditors"
of the Bay State Mills have issued a circular recommend
ing a new plan for capital.zing the debts into the "Wash
ingtun Mills." The U.UI debts arc $2,40(1.000. of which
$1,500,000 are held by individuals, and SOOO,OOO by cor
Iterations, executors and guardians tumble to take stock,
or to whom such a course would involve unreasonable re
sponsibilities. Tlie holders of the $1,508,000 are to become
stockholders and receive certificates on the relinquishment
of their claims. The $900,000 is to lie constituted a five
years' debt, secured by an eriual amount of the capital
stock. If all the creditors subscribe, a dividend of 33 per
cent, is to he made at once; if the subscription amounts
to $2,000,000 only, a dividend of 25 per cent.; if to $1,800,-
000 only, a dividend of 20 per cent. The agreement is not
to be binding unless the subscription amounts to $1,800,-
000. and no creditor is to have the right to come in aft r
January Ist, ISSB, except by permission of the committee,
and none is to come in, at any rate, after January 15.
The committee are of opinion that a public sale of the
real estate is advisable. They seem to think, also, that
the directors of the new corporation will sell fine of the
three mills, by means of which a large addition will !>.•
made to the active capital. Two of the directors are to he
nominated by the holders of the $900,000 above mention
ed. This $900,000 is to receive its proportion of all the
dividends paid, to the extent of 6 per cent, per annum for
the five years—all excess of dividends above 6 per cent,
to go to the stockholders. The corporation is to be formed
when $1,800,000 is subscribed. Those creditors who do
not join in the plan will receive their dividends, of course,
from the receivers. These dividends will be based on the
$1,300,000 already collected, increased by whatever sum
is paid by the Washington .Mills for the real estate. If
this latter sum should be $500,000. a creditor not joining
the new plan would receive 75 cents on a dollar. The
treasurer of the new company is to represent those credit
ors who subscribe to the plan, and is to receive their divi
dends from the receivers.— Boston Post, Xor. 27.
The Cumberland City Ba> k. at Cumberland, Md., closed
on Friday last. The Civilian says :
There were many causes combined to effect the ruin of
this institution, of which we might mention, a prejudice
of certain individuals, who exerted themselves with un
ceasing efforts to cast odium upon the c uicern, and bring
it into disrepute—some persons failing to make capital
out of the bank also used every effort to injure its credit
and standing—and last week, the refusal of a New York
house to pay two certain drafts, drawn upon them hv the
City Bank, has obliged it to close its doors, make an as
signment, and go into liquidation. Mr. James R. Annan,
of this city, is the assignee, to whom the entire property
of the hunk iias been handed over. Mr. Annan is a gen
tleman of the highest honor, and in whose hands the cred
itors of the bank can place everv confidence. The con
cern was first established in 1848* as a "Savings Institu
tion," but in 1850 it was converted by an act of the Legis
lature into a bank called the "Cumberland Savings
Bank." In 1858, at the last session of the Assembly, the
name was changed to "Cumberland City Bank."
The officers of the bank were Mr. James T. Norton, of
New York, who was only last September chosen Presi
dent; James M. Schley, Esq., our fellow townsman was
President preceding Mr. Norton. 51 r. Win. O. Spavtlt,
formerly of Ohio, has been cashier for the past two years
or more, and during that time lias become generally well
known to our business men. and others, with whom he is
warmly esteemed as a worthy gentleman, an honest and
upright man.
What the assets and liabilities of the bank are. is not
yet made public, but we presume its condition will he
published at an early day. The debts of the concern, we
think, cannot be great, as it did a small business, and its
circulation does not exceed SIB,OOO. or perhaps $20,000.
We understand that nearly, or all of its depositors have
been paid, leaving no creditors but bill and stockholders,
the latter will, of course, if any. be the principal losers!
There is very little of its money in circulation in this city
and county, and we are told that what is out is distant
and widely scattered.
The Civilian advises the creditors not to sacrifice the
notes.
READING RAILROAD —The tonnage of the Philadelphia
and P.eading Railroad for the past week was the largest of
the year. Ttie future prospects of the company
look exceedingly flattering. Thev closed the year
yesterday with about $1,290,000 net profit, and it is
thought by the best informed, in 1859 it cannot be much
short of $1,700,000. Four weeks from this date it is ex
pected that the tonnage will be 25,000 against 0.500 last
year, as Iron works now in operation were then suspended.
The net cost for transporting coai this year lias been 09
cents per ton. ami this, it is stated, will be reduced next
y ear. as the Company owns one of the most valuable coal
mines in Schuylkill county, and mine their own coal for
their engines. The fuel next year will not co t $609 00
against $450 000 hvc years ago when the engines burned
wood. In a few months the road from Reading to Allen
town, connecting with the New Jersey Central will he
finished, forming a direct line from New York citv to
P.ttsburg by Reading, taking all the passengers and
light freight from New A ork over the Lebanon Vallev I
Railroad instead of via Philadelphia. This will render the !
Lebanon \ alley Railroad one of the most profitable pro- 1
per ties of the Reading Railroad Company.
THE MICHIGAN SOUTHERN RAILROAD showed a deer,-HP
of $3,312 in the third week in November.
The Banking house of Geo. Smith k Co ,of Chicago it
is said, is winding up its affairs with its depositors and
will for the future confine itself to the purchase and sale
of exchange, and the negotiation of paper. This house
isoneof the oldest in that section, and the head of the
concern, Mr. Smith, has made an immense fortune in
the past fifteen years' operations in that section of the
country.
The coal trade of the Lehigh and Schuylkill regions is
increasing. The last week's report showed an excess of
32,439 tons, but the decrease in the entire season is set
down at 117,578 tons.
THE ANNUAL REPORT OP THE PITTSBURG AND BOSTON
MINING COMPANY (ClilF Mine) is just out. For the year
ending Nov. 30,1557. the product wasl,6Bl3£ tons, which,
with 71.530 lbs. of refined Copper, the yield of a large ac
cumulation of slag at the furnaces, produced in money
$496,870. The ordinary expenditures were $318,795,
properly chargeable to the year. The total expenditures
were $329,889, including the cost of two steam engines 1
and appurtenances. The net profits of the year were -179
095, from which a dividend of $lO on $6.0 0 shares and a
dividend of $5 on 20,000 shares has been paid. The surplus
on hand Dec. 1, 1857, was $136,897.
The exports of specie from California for the month of
October and the year were as follows:
October $4,342 679
Previously this year 35,095,113
Total since Jan. Ist. 1858 39,437,792
Corresponding period. 1857 39,296.886
Excess in favor of this year $140,906
The value of exports other than specie, for the month of j
October wus $474,570.
The interest coupons on the bonds of the Treverton Coal :
and Railroad Company, due on the Ist of December will
be paid on that day.
in the ease of Mr. Houghton, cashier of
the Litchfield Bank of Connecticut, has been postponed on
account of his being in a state of health bordering on in- J
sanity to such time as the sheriff shall ask to have it call
ed up.
The New Haven Journal and Courier savs:
We understand that the affairs of the Bank are in a des- !
pmte condition, but the receivers, Messrs. Harrison and
F♦Vh J t?nh!?n e f erill, i lied to di<?cha n?e their duty, and pro- I
tect the public from loss, as far as possible.
,"J ?J: *} n the instant, a motion was made
Judges McLean and Leavitt, of the United States
Circuit Court on behalf of George S.Coe Trustee Ac. of
the second l "° rt KS e -bond holders of the Cincinnati, Wil
mington and Zanesville Railroad, for a final decree direct
ing the sale of the road. The principal ground of the mo
tion is the fact that the interest has not been paid, an i
that the bond holders are entitled to the relief stipulated ,
by their mortgages The Company claim that if permit
t d to go on with their operations undisturbed until
April, they will be enabled to pay the interest and dis
| charge their obligations. The motion was to be argued on
Saturday.

The Cincinnati Price Current speaking of high prices
l'or hogs based on calculations of a short crop says :
"To our mind, there are not now, nor has there been at
any time sine - last September, any legitimate evidences
of a falling offin the numberof hogs which will be brought
to market this season as compared with last, but on the
contrary, as we have again and again slated, an impor
tant increase. t)f course, this increase will be greater or
less, according to the inducements held out in prices to
bring out hogs, but it must be admitted that the present
prices are the strongest kind of inducements to do this,
and the advices we have from all parts of ttic West leave
no doubt in our mind that the increase will be large. We
may he mistaken in our conclusion, but if we are j t will
be the first time in eight or nine years, though the ap
pearances are often against us for a time."

A MAN SHOT. —Yesterday evening, between 7 and
8 o'clock, a man named .latnes Pryor was shot in a
public house on Canal street, one door from Fayette
street, kept by a man named Hoovner. Several
men enteredthe bar-room and asked for Pryor, and
when he walked to where they were he was struck
in the face by one of them, when a pistol was fired.
One ot the balls entered Pryor's left breast, and
two entered the neck, one of which passed through
and came out on the left side of the neck, and the
other lodged. As soon as the shot was tired the en
tire party ran away. Pryor recognized all the crowd
and the following persons have been arrested : Few
is Carl, James Morgan, Richard Harris, James En
riis, Charles Foveday, and Thomas Hoolfman.—
Prvor was removed to the residence of his brother,

Taylor probed the wounds, but failed in extracting
either of the balls. He now lies in a critical stat(T.

the Hall of the Maryland Institute on the occasion
of the Club Convention Ball on Monday night. A
difficulty occurred there, when John Suter, David
Houck, and several others were put out, Pryor ta

of Pryor is the supposed cause of the shooting, as
the parties arrested are intimate associates of Hoock
and Suter. They are held in the Eastern district
police station for an examination before the Mayor.

goods seized by the claimant's testator while (fid

been imported in violation of certain acts of Con

seem to have been the cause of the act."

PACK MOPPHV. —Lord Lyttleton has written a let
ter to Mr. Murphy, from'which the following is an
extract:
"Your letter has but one professed object; that
we should declare that it is not your fault that the
match between yourself and .Mr. Staunton has not
taken place. To this the reply might be made in
two words. I cannot conceive it possible that ant
one should impute that failure to you; nor am 1
aware that any one has done so. But. in the cir
cumstances, 1 shall, perhaps, not be blamed if 1 go
somewhat further into the matter. In the general
circumstances of the case, 1 conceive that Mr.
Staunton was quite justified in declining the match.
The fact is understood that he has for vears been
engaged in labors which must, whatever arrange
ments might be made, greatly interfere with his cn
teiing into a serious contest'with a player of the
highest forceand in constant practice, and so far
the failure of the match is the less to be regretted.
Nor can 1 doubt the correctness of his recent state
ment, that the time barely nesessary for the match
itsclt could not be spared, without serious loss and
inconvenience both to others and to himself. But 1
cannot but think that in all fairness and consider
ateness, Mr. Staunton might have told you of this
long before he did. 1 know no reason why he might
not have ascertained it and informed von of it in
answer to your first letter from America, instead
of this, it seems to me plain, both as to the inter
view at which I myself was present, and as to all
the other communications which have passed, that
Mr. Staunton gave you everv reason to suppose
that he would bo ready to play the match within
no long time. 1 aui not aware, indeed (nor do I
perceive that you have said it,) that you left Amer
ica .soi.lv with the view of playing Mr. Staunton.—
It would, no doubt, make the" case stronger, but
it seems to me as unlikely as that you should have
come, as has been already stated (anonymouslv,
and certainly not with Mr. Staunton's concur
rence) in order to attend the Birmingham Tourna
ment."
Tlie London Era _saya: "Mr. Morpliy lias deci
ded to pass the winter in Europe. liis decision
cannot fail ot giving a still greater stimulus to
European chess. Herr Anderssen, also, has made
iinal arragements for being in Paris on the 12th of
December, so that this much expected match will
really come oil'. After its termination Mr. Morpliy
will probably be in England, where plans are al
ready atloatfor giving him the reception be merits.
CAPTAIN It. IJ. MAKCV—HIS LAST WINTER'S
EXPEDITION.
_[ From the Win-hint/ton Union of Nor. 2S/A.]
1 his able otlicer is now in this city under orders
for special duty,
f The expedition of Captain Marcy from Fort
Uridger to New Mexico last winter, on which lie
was despatched by (ten. Johnston, for the procure
ment of horses, mules and cattle for the army at
Camp Scott, is one of Ue most reniar' able on re
i cord. The route he puisued, which lay in a pretty
direct line across the i lunty and Rocky .Mountain
chains, had been traversed before in the summer
time by hunters and trappers, but had always been
set. down, even by these hardy men, as impractica
ble in the winter season. The old mountaineer
Jiridger pronounced the expedition impracticable.
Captain Marcy set out from Fort Uridger, however,
on the 27th November last with forty soldiers,
twenty-two citizens, thirty days rations, and sixty
live mules, and reached Fort Massachusetts. New
Mexico, six hundred and thirty miles from Camp
Scott, with the loss of but a single man on the 17th
of January, performing the journey in the depth of
the winter.
Immediately after entering the mountains, five
derive our information from otlicial papers,) the
snow became so deep that it was impossible for the
animals in their jaded state to make anv progress
through it. Forty men were accordingly placed
in advance of the mules to break a track for them.
This course, which was pursued from day to day,
enabled the party slowly to force its way up the
western slope of the mountains; but tiie snow rap
idly increased in depth as they advanced, when, as
tliey approached the summit of the mountains, it
layabout five feet deep upon the level, and here the
leading men were obliged to crawl upon their hands
and knees to prevent sinking to their necks.
The progress ot the party was necessariiv very
slow, and although they labored most faithfully
every day from daylight till dark, yet they ad
vanced only nineteen miles in live days. The ani
mals, finding no forage, except the "pine leaves,
became weaker continually. Many of them had
died, and those remaining "were reduced to a state
bordering on starvation. The majority of the men
had worn out their shoes before one-half of the
journey was performed, and, owing to their ex
posed condition, several had their feet badly frozen,
renderingjit exceedingly painful for them to march
or sleep.
On the .Id of January the rations were all con
sumed, and the party was reduced to the necessity
ot subsisting upon sucli of the animals as became
exhausted and could perform no further service.
This meagre and unwholesome diet with men who
were undergoing the most intensely severe labor
that the human system is capable of sustaining,
soon told upon them, anil after a few days they
became weak and emaciated, while the "amount
of labor they could perform sensibly diminished.
let this little band of excellent soldiers, all of
whom had volunteered for this severe service,
performed the hard task allotted them cheer
fully and with alacrity, and no one of them,
during the entire march, ever uttered a murmur
or manifested the sliirhest insubordination. The
brave men had undertaken the difficult, and danger
ous service for the laudable purpose of procuring
food and animals for tlm comrades they had let at
Camp Scott, who, there was good reason to believe,
from the famished condition of the small number of
animals which remained to them after the long
march from Fort Leavenworth, and the attacks of
the Mormons on the trains, would be in a condition
of want before the party could return.
It is known that Captain Marcy obtained the de
sired supplies in New Mexico, "except American
horses, and that he returned safely to Camp Scott
with his welcome purchases.
The return route of the expedition was from Fort
L'tiion over the Raton Mountains; thence skirling
the western base of the Rocky Mountains, across,
the head waters ol the Arkansas and South Platte
rivers to Bridger's passat the Laramie river; thence
along Brvan's trail to Sage ere:■!:: tlomco north
across to "Litter creek, and down that to Creen riv
er, and to Camp Scott—the whole making a distance
of seven hundred and forty miles.
It is a noticeable fact in regard to this road, "that
it affords a passage from the waters of the Atlantic
to those of the Pacific without, going over a moun
tain. The ascent to the summit level of the Rocky
Mountain chain is here so very gentle as to be al
most imperceptible, and for sixty miles upon the
plateau forming the dividing ridge tho eve cannot
distinguish which course the water takes."
It will be remembered that great apprehension
was felt lest the Mormons who, in strong parties,
were sent out to waylay Capt. Marcy, should suc
ceed in stampeding "the"animals and "cattle he was
bringing in from New Mexico. This otlicer, how
ever, iiad effectually provided against any such dis

that "whereas, the Government has been informed
by numerous citizens and has good reason to believe
that the said Murphy is insane, he is thereby par
doned and set at liberty."

LATEST BY TELEGRAPH FROM LONDON TO LIVER
POOL.
Loxnox, Saturday, Nov. 20th, A. M.— The Daily
AV/r* City article of Friday evening says: "The
funds to-day were dull, and a decline of % per
cent, was finally quoted, owing principally to the
languor of business. In the other departments of
the Stock Exchange there was an equal absence of
features of interest. More ease is observable in the
discount market. The supply of money is more
abundant, and the general rate for good bills is
still 2% per cent., but instances in which transac
tions take place below that rate are less rare.
There were no bullion operations at the Bank to
day."
The Time* City Article of last evening says: !
The English funds opened steadily this morning" at |
the firm prices of yesterday, and remained without j
much alteration, although there was a disposition
to dullness at the close in consequence of the quota
tions front Paris being slightly less favorable. The
abundance of money increases; and transactions
have taken place in'the discount market at two and
a quarter per cent.
In the foreign exchange this afternoon there was
a slight decline in the rates on Vienna and Trieste;
on other places thcv w ere about the same as at the i
last post. About £40,000 in gold arrived to-div !
from St. Petersburg, and a further similar amount
is expected immediately—the whole has been sold
for exportation. The colonial produce market dur
ing the week lias been scantily supplied, partly on
account of the easterly wind retarding the arrival
of many vessels now over due. A steady business
has taken place chieliy for consumption, and some
of the leading staples have closed at slightly en
hanced rates. There is still, however, a general
want of animation.

THE WAR WITII A NAM. —Admiral Qcnouillv has J
transmitted his official report of the taking of the !
forts at Tourane. The French naval division which
had been joined by the Spanish steamer El Cano,
having 450 troops" from the Philippine Islands, an
chored oil Tourane, Aug. 31st. The forts were sum
moned, and two hours given in which to consider.
No reply being made the vesels cannonaded the
forts and silenced them in half an hour. Detach- j
ments were landed, scaled the walls and carried i
them. While this was going on the gun boats can- |
nonaded the forts at the mouth of the river, and
one blew up. During the night southwestern part
of the bay was sounded, and in the morning the
gnn boats and the Spanish steamer took their po
sitions close to the remaining fort and in half an
hour it blew up. Admiral Genouilly fixed himself
in his position and waited the Anamite army, which
lie learned through the missionaries, was to attack
him with 10,000 men, hut it did not make its ap
pearance. All of the forts were mounted with
heavy bronze and iron guns, the former most nu
merous and fine pieces. The muskets were the
common French and Belgian musket. The powder
taken was of English manufacture, obtained proba
bly at Singapore or Ilong Kong. Reinforcements j
were to he sent from France.
The Muuiteiir of the 15tli says :
A private letter of the 18th September, from the
Camp of Tourane, gives some turtber details rela
tive to the expedition, after mentioning the capture
of the forts. We shall march to the attack of the
city of Hue, but before doing so wo shall wait for
the arrival of some Spanish cavalry who are on
their way from Manila. That place will in all
probability give ns more to do than the capture of
the forts, as it is said to he the strongest in all
Kastorn Asia. It is protected by an outer ditch
twelve kilometres (seven and a half milest in cir
cuit, and thirty yards wide. The ramparts are
mounted by 1,500 pieces of cannon. The French
otlicers who were in tho service of King Oya-lnng
had cast for him previous to 1821 more than 2.500
of those guns. They also endowed the citv of Hue
with extensive barracks, and fortified the port. It
is, therefore, in some measure against ourselves
that w shall have to light.
While waiting for the commencement of opera
tions, we make the best of our situation here. We
are exposed to a burning sun, with occasional tor
rents of rain. We sleep on the hard ground, in
coinpanv with myriads of ants, gnats, and other in
sects, which are more annoying than an}- of the
natives we have yet met with. As to meat, we are
confined to the salt provisions from the ships, hut,
as a set-off, we have plenty of partridges, plovers
and other game. Yesterday I partook of a part of
a leg of—not mutton—but of monkey, and I can as
sure you that it was in no way inferior to the pre
sale of Normandy. The inhabitants of this country
are small in stature, olive complexion, and, in inv
opinion, very ugly. They are said to be very intel
ligent, but "of this J have yet seen no proofs; but
they are a dirty, di gusting" race, being covered
with vermin, which they catch and get rid of in a
manner rather revolting to European stomachs.—
The country is one of great natural riches, and
which lias hitherto been kept aloof from the rest of
the world by a policy more exclusive than that
practised by the Chinese. It is now about to be
invaded by the element of civilization, and will he
compelled to associate with other nations.
A few more movements of the kind and the whole
universe will be conquered bv European civiliza
tion. There are several very excellent places of
anchorage on the coast of Cochin China, among
others the bay of Padaran,, Camragne, Xhiatrang,
Hong-ko, Phuyen and Con-mong, Ac.; but the Bay
of Turon or Tnurano, from its proximity to the cap
ital ol the Cochin Chinese empire, is the one which
navigators have given a preference to when com
pelled to run for shelter. The Bay of Tourane is
one of the finest natural ports in existence, and the
sheet ot water is not less than nine miles long by
five in breadth, and is completely sheltered from the
fury of the monsoons by the high mountains which
surround it. The achorage is excellent.

FURTHER FROM MEXICO
f From the A'rici Orleans Picayune.\
In the Progress, of Nov. 1 ltb, we find a long act
count of an engagement between a body of forcetj
under Gen. I.a Clave, at Tengonapam,and a body oil
Echeagaray's troops, who were endeavoring t>,
effect an advance towards Vera Cruz, byway °j
San Salvador. The column of Constitutionalist
forces, under Comamlantc Camache, who had been
posted to meet them, very rapidly defeated them,
killing and wounding several, who were abandoned.
They retreated to a positon about a quarter of a
league oil', and there opened a live of artillery on!
the Constitutionalist forces, but without any ( fleet.;
They soon stayed this, and then endeavored to pen
etrate byway of Calvario, but coming out near
that point about 4P. M., they found that it had,
already been occupied by Camache, who at once
charged upon them, and after a close and desperate'
encounter of half an hour, again beat them back,
with some killed and wounded; a portion of them
were also abandoned. They then retreated to
Tengonapam, which Camache had abandoned alter
the previous engagement, for stragetic reasons.
La Llave the same night despatched a force to take
possession of a hill to the right of that point, with
instructions to commence a fire on them, as soon as
day should break. This was done, and the
Zuloaguistas thinking themselves flanked, com
menced a hurried retreat, leaving behind them
a portion of their recently killed beeves, and the,
body of a man whom they had inveigled near bv,
cries of 'Libertad" and then assassinated, horribly,
mutilating him with edged weapons and with lire
arms. This, however, was the oul.v life lost on the
part of the Constitutionalists. They were com
manded, it seems, by Eclieagaaay and Negrete.— |
The former returned to La lioya, Negrete towards
Jalnpa.
Accounts from the camp of Sr. 1). Angel Albino
Corso state that the Governor of Chiapas had taken
two of the pieces taken from the Guerrero, mounted
them, and sent them to the Constitutionalist forces
besieging Cabasco.
Gen. Vidaurri was energetically preparing for a
new movement against Miramon, who was full of
conlidence. He states in his address that his loss
was not so great as has been supposed, and especial
ly the loss of life was but small.
FROM HAVANA.
The Empire City, Capt. S. F. Grillin, left New
Orleans on the 20th ult., arrived at Havana on the
23d, and left at 4.30, P. M., the same day for New
York. Her passage has been prolonged by constant
heavy weather and head winds. She brings twcn
tv-live passengers and a large freight of produce
from both mentioned ports.
The opera just inaugurated by Max Maretzek, at
the Villa Nueva Theatre, was occupying the atten
tion of the Habaneros, and under the new law of
prices "doubles or quits" promised a success to the
enterprising manager.
The spacious floating dock constructed lately at
New Orleans had safely arrived at Havana on the
20th, in tow of the Spanish steamers Mexico and
Pelayo, having been six days on the passage.
The Cuban Progress (such is her name) will ar
rest a great deal of floating capital in the harbor
formerly diverted to the United States, but being
the only one of her kind at Havana, it is inferred
that her tariff of prices will render her ways other
than ways of pleasantness to those who have to pay
for them.

Johnson gives the following account of the wreck :
We sailed from Quebec for Ilull October f>, with a

The last two nights spent in the maintop were
dreadful, the wind being from the northward with
heavy squalls, snow and hail, from which we got
water to drink.
FATE OF RAILWAY LOANS.
[ From the HutTnlo Commercial Advertiser.]
1. The State of New York loaned its bonds to the
New York and Erie Railroad for 53.000,000. It
was finally compelled to assume thorn, and they
now constitute a part of the State debt, unless the-
State has already paid them.
2. The State loaned Us credit to a railroad run
ning from itliaca to some other equally important
place—we forgot where. The road finally became
the property of the State, was sold, and realized
some five or six hundred dollars. The State paid
the rest.
3. The city of Buffalo subscribed $150,000 to
the stock of the Buffalo and lirantford Railway.
It is so much money to be charged to profit "and
loss.
4. The citizen? of Buffalo, with the idea of help
ing the trade of the city, took stock, bonds and
mortgages in the Buffalo and Cohocton Railroad to
the amount of nearly $1,000,000. Everv dollar
went under.
5. The citizens of Buffalo, with the idea of hav
ing a direct connection with New York, invested
largely in tiie Bulfalo and Horuellsville Railroad.—
Every dollar was sacrificed. We have the direct
