BALTIMOUE, December 4. 1S"8.
The operations at the Stock Board to-day were
comparatively light, and for the principal securi
ties the market was rather heavy. Northern Cen
tral Railway fell ofV % to }£, and Baltimore and
Ohio sold at a decline of to % on the price last
obtained for it. The sales of Baltimore and Ohio
included 275 shares at cash, and SSG%
buyer's option GO days, and of Northern Central
there were 014 shares sold at $22%@22% buyer's
option GO days; seller's option GO days:
and $22% cash, the closing sales being made at the
latter figures. Baltimore and Ohio closed at $50)2
bid, $36% asked, and Northern Central at $22%
bid, $22% asked regular way. There was nothing
done in State or city G'g, and but little in Railroad
bonds. The sales of the latter include $2,000 Bal
timore and Ohio 1885's at 85 buyer GO days, and
$1,500 Northern Central 1885's at 73% cash. State
and city C's were steady at the previous rates. The
only sale of Bank stock made at the Board was one
of 25 shares Franklin at sll%.
The New York Evening l J o*t of Saturday says:
The stock market is again heavy to-dav in the contin
ued absence of outside orders. The decline \va slight
on all descriptions. New York Central was the leading
stock to dav. the sales reaching 3 700 shares, closing at
83#.
Hudson River was in favor and rose to 83#.
Illinois Central securities were dull hat unchanged in
price. New Jersey Central Ist mortgage brought par.
Pennsylvania Coal advanced 1 percent.
Erie was dull at 17#. Reading is # percent, lower.
The Western Roads were sparingly offered, and
were steady at about the prices of yesterday's second
Board
Th- bonds of the Erie Road continue to advance. The
Sinking Funds of 1875 brought 48; the Thirds, (55.
Bank stocks are stiffly held. State bonds were a shade
easier. Missouri sixes sold atß9#.
The Money market has been very easy this week. The
banking movement has been uniform, and from present
indications the returns now making up will show a rise in
specie, notwithstanding the shipment of about a million
to the south. The banks have gained about $350,000 from
the Sub-Treasury and the greater part of the California r<-
ceipts. They are also strengthened by the calling in of a
portion of their Boston, Philadelphia and Ballifuore bal
ances. which cities are debtors.
The demand for money from the brokers has been light,
the condition of the stock market offering but little induce
inent for extensive operations The ruling rates arc 3#(sj
4 per cent, per annum. Occasional loans are effected as
low as 3 per cent. In discounts there is no change that
calls for notice.
Exchange on London closed firm but quiet. Sterling
bills 109#aT09#, francs 5 17# (a 5.13#. The City of Bal
timore, from this port to day, took $127,500 in specie.
COTTON. —Our markets are in rather a quiescent state
just now waiting for the next Liverpool news The ad
vance brought by the "Europa" was anticipated here and
lias been generally responded to in the Southern market*,
but from the easier feeling which i* showing itself, it is
apparent that favorable advices will be needed to maintain
the improvements, and any falling back in Liverpool will
have a corresponding effect here. The "Persia" will
bring replies to a decline of % to #c. in the Gulf ports and
#c. in this market—so that her news will probably not be
very stimulating when received.
Business on English account has not yet fairly com
menced at the South, there being comparatively few dis
cretionary orders s nt out yet, and the bulk of the limited
orders cannot be touched at present, owing to their low
limits. Any material decline from present rates, however,
would bring in a number of limited orders, and cotton
would begin to move more freely.
The Time* of Saturday says:
There is increased ease in Money to the Stock Brokers at
3# a4 per cent per annum. In discounts we hear of
nothing new. Most of the sound paper within IK) days at
4 months is taken up at Bank, while longer dates find out
side buyers at 5776 per cent, for strictly choice, and 7 per
cent, for fair. The Southern and Southwestern Bank
balances arc accumulating, and as Exchange on England
and New York has improved at New Orleans and the
Specie reserve at that point has gone up to $14,426,314.
the requisitions upon New York for gold are falling off
The remittances to that quarter the present week will
scarcely reach a million of dollars.
The following is a comparative statement of the
Imports of Foreign Dry Goods at New York
for the week, and since Jan. 1 :

COMMERCE OF THE PORT OF NEW YORK DURING NOVEM
BER, 1858.—Ti.e Custom-House returns of the foreign
trade at the port of New York, for the month of Novem
ber, were completed this afternoon. They present the
Import entries of the luonth as follows:
Dutiable goods, consumption direct $7,350,322
Dutiable goods, warehoused 1,725,318
Free goods 1.425.520
Total entered $10,501,161!
Against November, 1857 10.390,157
Increase in November, 1858 $211,003
The amount of goods of the previous importation, with
drawn from the bunded warehouse, is $2,124,655. There
were also entered, during the month, foreign gold and
•iI ver of the value of $90,466; same month last year the
foreign specie entered was $3,027,803.
The exports for the month of November from the port
of New York were :
In domestic produce $3.481.654
Foreign re-exported 383,9.81
Gold and silver 471.970
Total $4,337,605
Against November, 1857:
In produce $5,245,599
Foreign re-exported 1.580,883
Specie. 3,239.231-$10,065.713 j
Decrease of all exports in November. 1858 $5,728,108
We understand that the connection between the New
Jersey Central and Lehigh Valley Roads and the Pennsyl
vania Roads, will be made in the course of January next
by the completion of the link between the Lehigh Valley
and the Reading Road, the connection between the latter
and Pennsylvania Central being already made.
The Erie Canal navigation has practically closed, and
freights are alreadv transferred along the line from the
boats to the New York Central cars. The river naviga
tion is also uncertain, and the Hudson River Road has
better employment for its freight cars, besides nearly mo
nopolizing the passenger trade between this and Albany.
The Road, in November, earned $137,094, again*t $121,282
same month last year, and operated the line for $14,443
less; making a gain of $30,255 in the net profits of the j
month.

The Philadelphia Ledger of Saturday says:
The anthracite coal trade is drawing near its* close- at
least so far as water communication is concerned. The
canals will probably close in the course of another week, j
The business of the several lines connecting with the Le
high and Schuylkill regions, compare as follows for the
week and season with corresponding time last year:
The Schuylkill Canal brought down for the week end
ing on Thursday last 36,830 tons. 8,819 tons increase on
corresponding week last year, making the tonnage for the
season 1,263,062 tons, 28.465 tons increase on tonnage to
corresponding time last year. The Reading Railroad
brought down for the week ending on Thursday 43.772
tons, a decrease of 3,393 tons on the tonnage of corres
ponding week last year. The tonnage from the first of
November, 1857, to Thursday, is 1.557 tons, a decrease of
175,466 tons as compared with last year.
The Lehigh Navigation shipped for the week ending on
Saturday la-t 26.211 tons, being an increase of 6,694 tons
on the business of corresponding week last year, and
swells the tonnage for the season to 886,327 tons, within
4,432 tons of what it was to the same time last year.
The Lehigh Valley Railroad brought down for the week
13.157 tons, being an increase of 5,297 tons on the tonnage
of corresponding week last year, and for the year 466.384
t0n5—50.246 tons more than to the same time la-t year.—
The production for the year by the four lines named is
4,172 932 tons, being only 101,182 tons less than was
brought down to the same time last year by the same
lines.
A correspondent writes to the St. Louis Anzciger
des Westens :
"FRANKFORT--OX THE-MAIN, November 4.—The German
American Railroad war entered into anew phase on the
2d of November. Three million dollars worth of Ameri
can securities were represented at the general meeting of
holders of American bonds. Mr. Koster, of Frankfort, is
the QuartermasterGener.il. New York and Erie is de
nounccd as uii t'.y of further leniency, and a commis
sioner. Accom 'iii-d by several secretaries, is to proceed to
America to bring the matter before the courts.
t4 The General Treasury at Frankfort, organized for the
purpose of giving effectiveness to the movement, is strong,
and hopes of ultimately securing tle greater portion of the
amount invested are generally entertained."
The Cincinnati Ing uirer of Thursday says :
Application was made by Messrs. Stanberry, Ewlng A
McLean, counsel for James Winslow, trustee of the first
and second mortgage bondholders, in the United States
Circuit Court yesterday, to foreclose the mortgages anil
sell the Marietta and Cincinnati Railroad, and a bill
yvas filed for the appointment of a Receiver.
The Cincinnati and Chicago Railroad is completed 78
miles from Richmond to Logansport. and a force of some
three hundred men are at work between Logansport and
Valparaiso, and have graded and ready for the iron some
twenty miles. When c mpleted to the latter point, they
will have a line some forty miles shorter to Chicago than
any now in use by using a portion of the Pittsburg. Fort
Wayne and Chicago, from Valparaiso to Chicago, and the
Cincinnati. Hamilton and Dayton and Eaton ami Hamilton
from Cincinnati to Richmond. The iron for Die sixty-four
iniles (Logansport to Valparaiso) is purchased, and a por
tion of it has already arrived in New York.
The Gazette says : Some time in January, or nt au ear
lier period, there will a Convention of railroad men at
Memphis, to devise some plan and select some route, to IK.*
presented to Congress, for the connection of the Mississip
pi and the Pacific. The companies east of the Mississippi
are deeply interested in the subjects that will come b-fore
the Convention, and all are expected and desired to he
represented. Memphis is directly and immediately inter
ested in the Memphis, El Paso and Pacific Road.
Brownlow's Whig says: During the past week a meet
ing held at Chattanooga, of a number of the principal
men of the different roads, between New Orleans and
New York, connecting with the grand chain through
this city, agreed upon a tariff of charges for
Through Tickets and Freights. The different roads, were
ably represented, and the proceedings marked by harmo
ny and courtesy.
The proceedings of the Convention, as soon as prepared
by the Secretary, will he published. Through the polite
ness of a delegate we are furnished in advance with the
following adopted rates for through Tickets for passengers

BOSTON BOOT AND SHOE MARKET—FOR THE WEEK
ENDING DEC. 3.— The Boot anil Shoe market remain.-- about
the same as noticed last week. A very fair business is
s ; nso '!: there is a very firm and healthy
tone to the trade. Further order- from the South and
rLnft™s" "r' i'T I '.''"" 1 with the New England and
California trad/ a fair business has been done Trie nro
pects of the Spring trade look unite a- em-ouriieinir -is no
ticed in our previous report. The stock of roods U accu
mulating slowly, particularly of desirable kinds In the
West and South the stocki are evidently mollerate d
with a very easy money market throughout the country
and a good range of prices for cotton and produce of all'
kinds, there is every reason to look for a good and heal thy
Spring trade. *
Manufacturers continue to be actively employed 011
Spring work. Tim cost of manufacturing ha* been fur
ther increased the past week by another advance in stock,
and with an active market for both Sole and Upper
Leather, there is still a strong upward tendency. The
stock of Hides also has been materially reduced in all the
principal markets, and prices generally are 1(5 2c. per lb.
higher than the current rates a few week.* ago, with a firm
feeling. A good range of prices must evidently be ob
tained for Roots and Shoes to meet the increased cost of
manufacture.
No exports to California the past week from this port;
and from New York the shipments have been 135 cases.
The late advices from San Francisco reported a firm
market for goods suited to the season and a small
stock.
nnl ™/ lUan *ity C^eare d at the Custom House lias been
205.907 cases, a falling off of 20,121 cases compared with
last year.
BOSTON COTTON GOODS MARKET, FOR THE WEEK
EXDINO December 3.—There has been rather a quiet tone
to the Cotton Goods trade the past week, and no sales of
any magnitude have been made for either export or con
sumption The feeling, however, is very firm and hold
ers are quite indifferent about selling at late prices, as it is
very evident to them that the recent advance in Cotton
will prevent goods from going any lower. Heavy stand

this price, with a moderate business, medium Sheetings

CINCINNATI MARKET. Dec. 2.— FLOUR —The market
has not changed essentially. The demand is confined to
the wants of city dealers. The sales are 700 bhls. at $4.50
<</4.60 for choice, and $4.75(5)5 for extra. The receipts
during the last twenty-four hours were 2.663hb15.
WHISKEY. —The market was dull to-day, hut no lower.
Sale* of 1.400 bids. at22#c., including wagon, and 200 do.
11. P. at22c.
HOGS. —The market was quite dull to-day, under the
operation of large receipts and unfavorable weather, and
for light Hogs, that is, those averaging 3CO lbs and down
wards, prices were about 25c. lower. Heavy Hogs main
tained their prices established yesterday.
PROVISIONS. —There has been no special change in the
market sine • yesterday; if anything, the market was less
buoyant. The sales add up 8,000 pieces green meats from
the block at s#c. for sh/niblcr*. and B#(s}B#c. for hams;
700 hbls*. mess prk at sl7: 125 hhds. bacon sides at 9c.
and 10 10. >hoiihlers at 6#c., both packed; 500 kegs Lard
at 12c., and 200 tcs. do. at 11c., and 500 000 lbs. bulk
meat for future delivery, say March and April next, at
6#@C#c. for shoulders and S# (jß#c. for sides.
HOGS.—The Louisville Courier of Friday says: The
market is unchanged,and as firm as ever, with no sales of
hogs reported, but considerable sales of mess pork at sl7
to $17.50. The receipts continue heavy, hut the slaughter
yesterday was light, owing to the nnld weather.
The total killing up to last evening, around the falls,
amounts to 165.375 hogs, with 29,400 head left over in
pens, which makes the total receipts, thus far this season,
foot up 164,765. The receipts by railroad yesterday, and
the day previous, amounted to 16.240 head.
The total receipts at Louisville have been 194.765, and
at Cincinnati 188,101. The Louisville papers are jubilant
at tlnar triumph.
Chicago Press says: There seems to be a very general
impression that the country through which the Chicago,
Burlington and Quincy, and the Peoria and Oquawka
Railways pass, are pretty well stripped of hogs. Buyers
have been out from Quincy, Lacon, Peoria. Burlington,
and all the packing points in the region round about, as
well as from Chicago, buying all they could touch. Of
course much of the talk which is made about "short
crop," Ac.. may be fiction: but there is no mistake about
the great falling off in the weight of the hogs this season
compared with last. A large proportion of the receipts
are thin scraggy looking animals, more resembling wolves
than genuine porkers. We hear the same complaint all
over the West—in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.
WILMINGTON MARKET. Dec. 4.—TURPENTINE—Has

CANTON.—The dealers are returning very slowly, and
show hut little disposition for business. They place but
little confidence in the promises and assertions of their
own authorities, and arc evidently afraid of being taxed
for war expenditure if found engaged in commercial
transactions with foreigners. There have been no trans
actions of consequence in imports, though a considerable
quantity, mostly Straits "produce, has been landed on the
Honam side.
Musters of 20"b 30 chops of new Congou have been shown.
In leaf and strength they are inferior tu the teas tf last
year, though some of them are of fine and delicate flavor.
The quantity in the neighborhood is variously estimated
at from 120 // 200 chops. Until more of the native mer
chants return, it is impossible to form an idea of what
will he the opening rates; those now talked of by the
dealer.* are extreme. No other kin/Is of new tea have
been offered.

white, and about 500 rolls of white and red checked re
main, which are offered at proportionate rates. Cassia is
offered at sl6 per picul; Cassia Oil at $295. and Ansie Oil
in small quantities at sllO.
The Henry Miller has been dispatched for Australia, and
the Aden is nearly laden lor Liverpool.

Sedgemoor, are loading, and the Lammermuir has been
circulated to load at Whaiupoa, but with not much pros
pect of early dispatch. Rates are £2.10(2)£3.10. For

TELEGRAMS
; RECEIVED AT THE OFFICE OF "THE DAILY EXCHANGE."
From Washington.
WASHINGTON, Dec. s.—The report of the Secre
tary of the Treasury has not been made accessible,
but it is generally understood that it will contain
j no recommendation tending to disturb, materially,
I the existing tarift' law, while modifications may be
I suggested in the transfer of a few articles to sclied
j ules other than those in which they are now enu
merated. Attach in pr much importance to a staple
tarilV, that, the interest of commerce may not be in
jured, and believing that the present law will ulti
mately yield a sufficiency of revenue, the inference
seems to be that he would, rather than that the
tariff should be chanjred in its prominent features,
prefer to resort to loans in cases of temporary
embarrassment.
Lieut. Ives,of the Topographical Engineer Corps,
; has prepared a preliminary report ol the results of
his expedition for the exploration of toe Colorado
I of the West, which will probably appear with the
I report of the Secretary of War. The expedition
j was a liiehly successful' one, and the results are of
an important character. He ascended that river in
I a steamboat for five hundred miles, and considers
that the navigation of it is practicable for that dis
tance for steamers of a light draught. It is thought
that the opening of this river may develope an
economical avenue of transportion to large portions
of New Mexico, California and Utah. After the
hydrographic survey, an examination was made of
the previously unknown region along the .Ttith par
allel, which is traversed by the upper Colorado
river and its tributaries, and the country was found
to possess such novel and remarkable features as to
render the explorations of the highest interest.
There is little, if any, doubt that a law will be
passed the ensuing session of Congress, extending
the pre-emption laws to Utah. At present, no set
tler in the Territory lias a legal title to his land.
The surveys are progressing, and already 2,000,000
acres are ready for market.
From what is said in millitarv quarters it is
probable that a strong force will continue to be
kept in Utah. Though the Mormons are quiet at
present, they are not resigned to the circumstances
which surround them.
The Virginia Democratic Convention.
PETERSBURG, Dec. 3.—The following is an outline
of to-night's session of the Democratic Convention:
Mr. Pryor concluded his speech amid tremendous
applause and was followed by Wm. M. Tredwav,
for Air. Letcher. O. Jennings Wise also made
another speech for Air. Letcher,and is still speaking
las this despatch is sent off. The balloting will
j probably commence as soon as Air. Wise has con
■ eluded.
[SECOND DESPATCH.]
Nomination of Mr. I.vtrlier.
PETERSBURG, A'a., Dec. 4.—The Democratic Gu

COLLISION.— On Friday night the steamer St.
Nicholas ran into the schooner Citizen, anchored
off Fort Mcllenry. The schooner had one of her
davits carried away and her boat stove. The
steamer sustained no injury. The accident was oc
casioned by the dense fog which has hung over the
city and harbor for the past few days.
| SERIOUS DAMAGE—FALLINU OF A WALL. —About 0
' o'clock on Saturday afternoon a terrible noise was
beard in the neighborhood of Lerew's alley near
F rank]in street, caused by the falling of the rear
wall of the warehouse occupied by Messrs. Hardin
& Carroll ae a produce depot, and belonging to Mr.
David Hays. The cause of the building giving
way was that the second-storv was too closely
packed with flour, bran; produce Ac., pressing
very heavily against the wall on Lerew's alley and
pushing it out. The girder of the building was
thrown some twelve feet forward and the floor in
falling crushed a dray belonging to a colored man
and from which be had but three minutes previous
detached his horse. The loss of Messrs. Hardin Sc
Carroll is estimated at about four or five thousand
dollars, and between five and six bundl ed barrels of
various produce belonging to Mr. Peter Zell, were
entirely covered up by the ruins, and it is impossi
ble yet to tind out the exact amount of his loss.
ANOTHER. —The steamer North Carolina, Captain
Cannon, which left here on Friday night, at 5
o'clock for Norfolk, when in Annapolis Koads, ran
into a large ship, by which the steamer's larboard
smoke stack and some of her upper frame work
were carried away. Capt. Cannon reports that
about fifteen minutes of 8 o'clock, the weather be
ing very thick, lie discovered a ship right ahead,
lying at anchor; he ordered the helm to be put to
port, by which a more serious collision was avoided.
The ship's bowsprit was carried away, and the
steamer injured as above stated. Owing to the state
of the weather the ship's name was not ascertained,
but is supposed to be the "Puisburg" for Rotterdam.
The steamer returned to Baltimore for repairs.
STEAMSHIP CITY OF NORFOLK. —Through the
courtesy of Mr. Win. Cricliton, President of the
Savannah Steamship Co., the fine steamship City
of Norfolk, lias been tendered the Boston line of

the advertisement of Mr. Mears in another column.
CHARITY SERMON. —The Rev. 0. H. Tiflany preach
ed a Charity Sermon yesterday afternoon at the
Ilall of the Maryland Institute. The well-known
ability of the preacher and the announcement that
the "Did Folks' Choir" would be present and par
ticipate in the exercises, drew together a very
large audience, notwithstanding the inclemency of
the weather. A collection was taken up, and quite
a large amount was contributed.
POCKET PICKED. —A young man named William
Timon, had his pocket picked of a purse containing
S4O in cash and a promissory note of S3O, whilst
getting out of a hack at the Camden station on Sat
urday last. There were several bovs crowding
around him at the time, and it is supposed that one
of them committed the theft.
FOR CUBA. —The brig Seguin, Capt. Beard, was
yesterday towed from her wharf at Locust Point,
preparatory to sailing for Cuba. The Seguin takes
out some fifty passengers, laborers and mechanics,
to be employed on a Cuban railroad now in the
course of construction. Her cargo consists of
dumping railroad cars, frames for bridges, cross
ties, Ac.
FIRES.
The fire on the Point was noticed briefly on Saturday
morning. From further information it appears that the
fire broke out on the first floor of the establishment of
Messrs. Win. 11. Peters & Son. near the machinery, and is
supposed accidental. This building was entirely burnt
out in half an hour after the fire was discovered. The
west gable wall of this house full upon the corner store
without doing any damage. The house on the east. No.
93. called the European Hotel, was burnt considerably in
the upper stories, which were occupied as a dwelling by
J. S. llerford. the lower floor being used by S. Jlerford as
a lager beer saloon.
Messrs. Peters have a policy on the building in the As
sociated Firemen's ollice for SI,BOO, and $3,000 on stock
and machinery in a Hartford (Conn.) office. Their loss is
nearly total. The three-story brick building. No. 93. ad
joining. owned by Mrs. Mary M. Wheeden. was damaged
to the ext. nl of s'.oo. and is insured in the Associated for
$2,000. The occupants of this building were Mr. J. S.
Herford on the first floor as a tavern, and in the upper
stories by Mr. S. llerford as a dwelling. J. S. llerford is
insured in the Baltimore Fire Insurance Company, on his
stock and furniture. for S4OO. Mr. S. llerford is insured on
furniture in the Firemen's office for S2OO. which is a total
loss. The store on the corner. No. 89, unoccupied, was
damaged by lire and the falling of the walls to the extent
of SSOO. It is owned by Mr. Samuel Ellenger, aud is in -
sured in the Equitable Society.
The flames had been in progress about an hour and a
half before the alarm was conveyed to the western portion
of the town, and when the steam engines reached the
spot the buildings were nearly burnt out.
The alarm at half past G o'clock yesterday evening, in
the eastern section of the city, was false.

BY" THE OVERLAND MAIL.
Among the passengers by the last mail were Mr.
M. Kibbin anil Lieut. Mowry. From them the St.
Louis Republican gathers the following items :
Lieutenant Mowry left the gold mines on the 4th
ot November, at which time about l.iO men were at
work there, making on an average from seven to
ten dollars per day , though they use the widest in
struments. (iold has been discovered on both sides
of the (Ida river for a distance of several miles, be
ginning about twenty miles above Fort Yuma. It
has also been discovered some sixty miles above the
present diggings. The Overland Mail Company are
running extra stages trom Los Angeles to the mines
for the accommodation of emigrants.
A town has been laid out called (Ida City, and
buildings are rapidly going up for three miles on
each side ol the mail route, which passes through
the town. The miners are engaged in their opera
tions from three quarters of a mile to two miles
from the (Ida. which stream affords plenty of water
for washing the gold. Our informant brings seve
ral hundred dollars in gold from these diggings, of a
very line quality, and much resembling that of the
A una river in California. Some of the pieces are
worth from fifty cents to two dollars. Nuggets
worth twelve dollars arc not unusual. Up to the
4th iust., live thousand dollars worth of the ore had
been taken out, previous to which time the dig
gings have been known but two months.
Every part of the country yet prospected in the
vicinity of the mines has proved auriferous, and
the opinion is current among old miners that no
richer surface diggings exist, even in the most fa
vored portions of California.
Placers have even been worked at the Santa Rita
copper mines, five hundred miles in a direct line
cast of the Arizona diggings.
As the mines are located on neutral ground be
tween that of the Yuma and Pimos tribes, no dan
ger is to be apprehended from hostile Indians.
The Sonora Silver Mining Company was smelt
ing about one thousand ounces per week.
The Patagonia, San Antonia, Pacific and Santa
Rita Companies, are actively at work. Lieut.
Mowry brings several fine specimens of silver from
these mines, lie says the supply is almost inex
haustible, and in fact in such abundance that it is
ofttimes knocked out of the ground by the feet of
travelers' horses.
On the Gila river and its branches, and on the
Santa Cruz, San Pedro, and Miuibres, there is sulli
cient agricultural land to sustain a population of
several hundred thousand. The land is very rich,
producing two crops annually. All the cereals,
fruits, &e., grow finely; and for grape culture it
equals Southern California. As a grazing country,
between the Itio Grande and Santa Cruz, it is un
excelled by any land in the world—grass growing
as finely in the winter as in the summer.
The population of the territory is from twelve to
fifteen thousand. The vote cast for Delegate was
2,852. Two years ago, at the last election of Dele
gate from New Mexico, Mr. Otero and Mr. Baird
polled 1,(100 votes in the Rio Grande portion of
Arizona.
Arizona receives'no protection of any kind from
New Mexico. The country is entirely without law,
except one court of inferior jurisdiction at Mcsila.
In the entire region West of the Colorado for six
hundred miles there is no authority higher than that
of a Justice of the Peace, who is elected bv the
people.
The towns are governed on the old Mexican plan.
Tlyg road from San Francisco to Texas is in good
condition.
The first mail from Albuquerque to California
over the 35th parallel, when about sixty miles out
from the former place, was ordered to go down on
the Arizonia route to Pimos, and from thence into
California by the Butterfield route. The emigrants
who turned back unable to make the trip, report
that theirmules had gone five days without water.
The people of Sonora Yeceived Americans with
hospitality and confidence, and seemed to be in no
fear of a (filibuster demonstration. We learn that
the people of Arizonia keep up an active trade and
intercommunication with them, and design no in
terference with the Sono-ians or their officers. An
assurance that the United States will make good
the claims that have arisen from Indian depreda
tions will induce them to consent to annexation to
the American Union. These claims now amount to
eight or ten millions of dollars. The people of So
nora found their claim for reparation upon that
clause of the treaty of Guadaloupe llidalgo which
promised the inhabitants of the frontiers of Mexico,
immunity from attacks of the Indians.
Capt. Stone was progressing successfully with
his surveys, under the present contracts authorized
by Government.
Mr. Franklin reports the Oainanches as some
what troublesome, although they are not organ
ized in bands sufficiently large to occasion much
alarm.
Mr. Edwards, one of Lieut. Beale's partv, arri
ved at Fort Smith, reports the expedition all well
and in camp on the south side of the Canadian.—
Lieut. Beale would proceed to Albuquerque as soon
as the escort, which is a short distance behind,
overtook him.
The mail from Xeoslia to Albuquerque was at
Lieut. Beale's camp. Gob lSoss was in the neigh
borhood visiting the springs and proceeding with
the examination of the surveys towards' the Mo
have and Tijon.
FROM MEXICO.
The steamship Tennessee, with Vera Cruz dates
to November 23d, arrived at New Orleans Novem
ber 28th. The purser reports that the following
Spanish and French vessels were anchored at Sacri
iieios : Spanish brigs I'elayo, Vaides and IJabanero.
steamship Colon. French frigate Cleopatra, 52
guns, and steamship Surcoof. The purser also re
ports that Admiral I'cnaud was expected daily with
the rest of the French squadron.
There was no communication between Vera Cruz
and the City of Mexico. Nothing of importance
had occurred at Vera Cruz up to the 23d, except
the entrance of Trejos on the 21st, with his starved
troops, from Perote. There was a rumor that I)e
--gollado had defeated Margucs near Guanajuato.
Gen. Eclieagarav had besieged the fortress of Pe
rote for about three months with a large force and
a heavy train of artillery, and the garrison were
finally reduced only by starvation. They had de
voured everything eatable within the fortress, even
to their horses, and then spiked their guns and
abandoned the place. Juarez, the Constitutional
President, had issued a decree annulling contracts
made by the Zuloaga Administration and reserving
the right to annul those of ('oinonfort. Mirainon
is said to be in a critical condition. Lack of sup
plies for his troops had obliged him to separate
them into divisions for their support, at the risk of
being cut oil' in detail. The warmth with which he
urged the necessity of supplies had displeased the
Government, and only the knowledge of his abili
ties and popularity as "a soldier prevented him from
being removed.
The Pieaynnc eontains the following letter :
'A ERA Cai'z, Nov. 22, 1858.—Yesterday morning
entered here the General Trejos, with about 150
men, the remainder of the whole force of Perote, in
a most miserable and desolate condition, being al
most without clothes. These heroic troops have re
sisted for more than three months the attacks of the
much superior forces of Gen. Eclieagarav, and have
left that fortress only after a long period of starva
tion. being reduced at the end to eat their horses
and hides; but before they gave up the fortress they
spiked all guns and destroyed all the ammunition,
so that Eclieagarav made his entry only into the
naked half destroyed walls of Perote.
"The resistance of General Trejos and his half
starved soldiers is the more praiseworthy, as in the
camp of Eclieagarav they would have met not only
with plenty of food, but also each soldier with a
premium of sixteen dollars as a reward for desert
ing the fortress."
We have tiles of the Vera Cruz Progre.eo to the
21st ult., inclusive by the T. inicH.ec. We find in
them but little to add to the communications above
given. A decree of the Constitutional President,
Juarez, annuls the contracts made by the Zuloaga
government and reserves the right to annul those
of Gen. Comfort's administration.
A letter from the capital says that Miramon's
triumph at Abualaco has cost him more than 2,000
men, and may be considered as a virtual defeat, as
it renders further movement s on his part impossible.
The sutferings experienced by Miramon's army on
its march to San Luis have compelled him to divide
it into small detachments at various points, where
they may be easily assaulted and put to route. Mi
rainon is continually asking for supplies, and the
difficulty of obtaining them has produced a violent
controversy between him and Zuloaga, which
threatened at one time an open rupture. The
quarrel was, however, appeased by the interven
tion of friends, but Mirainon is still clamorous for
supplied. The National Palace, adds the writer, is
a perfect Babel. Vidaurri has 4,500 men under his
command, and is ready to resume offensive opera
tion. In Tabasco the Constitutionalists had had
several skirmishes with the Reactionists, but active
movements had been interrupted by the advent of
the rainy season.
Perote, alter a long siege, was evacuated by Gen.
Trejo, who, with his forces, fell back on Paso de
Gvejas, and was thence to proceed to Vera Cruz-
No sooner did Echeagaray enter Perote than lie is
sued a most infamous order to shoot all the prison
ers —an act of barbarity worthy of the execrable
warfare now raging in the Republic, and worthy of
the blood-thirsty chief of the Reactionists.
Letters of the 22d mention the arrival at Vera
Cruz of General Trejos, with about one hundred
and fifty men, the remnant of the garrison of Pe
rote. 'l'he town was abandoned after a prolonged
and desperate resistance, on account of famine.
The Constitutionalists, under Aramberri, had cap
tured and occupied the town of Zacatecas. The
town of Cuernavaca was likewise in their posses
sion. General Alatrista had achieved numerous
successes at Puebla.
The news generally is favorable to the Constitu
tionalists, though Zuloaga has not yet been deposed
or driven from the capital.
The Picayune publishes the following extracts
from letters received by commercial houses from
their correspondents in Mexico :
" MEXICO, NOV. 18.—We are unable to avail our
selves of your valuable services, owing to the very
unfortunate state of the country. We are in a
constant revolution; nothing is heard or spoken of
but the encounters between one side and the other,
and it appears to us we are just as far from peace
as we were six months ago. AH communication
with the road is suspended. We cannot, in our
opinion, look to peace again, unless we have some
foreign intervention, and we are in hopes that the
United States Government may yet be induced to
interfere."
" VERA CIUZ, Nov. 21. —The political affairs of
this unfortunate country are in a most unsettled
condition, and it is impossible to form an idea when,
and by what means, the revolution will be brought
to a conclusion. It is supposed that we may ex
pect shortly an attack on our city by Gen. Echea
garay. but as we have now two French and four
Spanish vessels-of-war, we do not think that any
outrages can be committed bore."
Some days since a man engaged in a Detroit
jiottery was struck on the back of the head, low
down in the neck by a revolving knife, completely
severing the upper and back portion of the skull, on
a line close to the top pL Jhe ears, and cutting
through and removing * consWernble portion of the
brain. The most singular circmnStance was that
the man, in this horribly wiiundTaleiiiilition, walk
ed into an adjoining work

which lie rode to his home, surviving thaaUtldeut
nearly half a day.
A NEHO.
The recent courageous and even desperate act
of Card. Brooks, Keeper of the Faulkner's Island
Light, in rescuing the captain, his wife and crew,
from a wreck, in Dong Island Sound, deserves more
than a passing notice. It will he remembered that
Faulkner's Island itself is more than two miles from
land, and that its only inhabitants are tin 4 keeper
of the lighthouse and his family, ('apt. Oliver N.
Brooks. The wreck lay upon Goose Island, some
j two miles from this; but ('apt. Brooks could see,
with his glass, the persons in the rigging, and the
j sea lashed into unusual fury, making a breach
high over its decks, and threatening instant de
| struetion. It was too sad a sight for the brave man
to endure; and provided as lie was by Government
I with nothing but a small sailboat, to go between
| the island and the mainland, he would have
I been fully justified in leaving them to a fate
horrible to think of. His wife was on
shore, and he was alone with his family of little
children; but telling them of the peril he was about
to assume—a fearful peril, from which he might
never return—he kissed them, and calling upon
God to protect them and bless his endeavor, lie
jumped into his frail skiff, and steered holdl v into
the storm and the billows. Those on board saw the
attempt, and even in their agony wondered at his
boldness, predicted its failure, and grieved at what
they considered an unnecessary sacrifice. But still
the brave man, relying upon Providence, kept up
his heart and hopes, and although every wave
threatened him with destruction, he reached at last
the wreck, and hailed the desponding crew with
words of cheer. By the most skillful management
of his boat, now shooting past, and once over the
very wreck itself, he at last managed to pick them
oil', one at a time, and then turned for the shore.
But it was only by constant bailing and tremen
dous efforts that the boat was kept above water,
and at last reached the island, with its inmates ex
hausted. and nearly dead with hunger and exposure.
On the shore, waiting for their father, were the
little children of Captain Brooks, who, with
tears and screams of joy, saw the boat tossed vio
lently upon the land by the angry waves, with its
load ot rescued mariners, who were immediately
transferred to the lighthouse residence, and made
welcome and comfortable. A gentleman familiar
with the circumstances, and also with the dangers
of the sea, assures us that it was the most daring
feat he ever read of, that the boat was entirely unfit
foi such a service, and nothing but unrivaled cool
ness, great skill as a boatman, and the hand of
Providence over all, made the effort successful.— j
Capt. B. thought it at least an equal chance that he
should be lost; though, with a proper life or surf
boat, he wouldn't have hesitated an instant about
going to the wreck when he first discovered the
danger, and might have saved the life of the little
girl— the captain's child of three years—who fell
from his exhausted arms into the sea, half an hour
before ('apt. K. reached the wreck.
We have known Captain Brooks for several vears
as one of the most faithful men in the lighthouse
service, and means will be taken to call the atten
tion of the Government to his merits, and hope
that he may bo provided with a boat suitable for
the kind of service lie is so frequently called upon
to enter. There should he also, at such an exposed
point, an assistant keeper: for had Mr. Brooks been
lost in his effort to save the crew of this vessel,
there would have been missing -to the mariner in
Long Island Sound, on that night, the ever-steady
beacon-light of Faulkner's Island. If ever hero de
served the public reward of bravery, that man is
Oliver N. Brooks, the solitary watcher on a sea-girt
island.—A "etc Haven Register.
ART.
Clarke Mills has nearly finished the plaster cast
of the equestrian statue of Washington, for which
he received a commission from Congress. The
face was modelled from the cast taken from Wash
ington himself bv Houdon. The statue represents
the General at the critical moment of the Battle of
Monmouth.
An equestrian statue of the South American
"Liberator," Simon Bolivar, ordered by the city of
Lima, in Peru, has just been cast in bronze at Mu
nich, Bavaria. It was placed on exhibition in
Munich about the first of November, preparatory
to shipment to its destination. The statue is fifteen
German feet in height and weighs 111 cwt. The
model was furnished by the Roman sculptor, Tado
lini, who, as a German journal remarks, "seems to
have designed it to suit the ideas of popular sover
eignty, now so prevalent in America. The Libera
tor, with his hat in one hand, is bowing respectfully
to the people, in whom he recognises the source of
all power."
The statue was cast in one piece, with the excep
tion of the head and legs of the rider and the fore
legs of the horse, which had to be detached to al
low the transportation overland to Mannheim,
whence it was to be conveyed by water to Amster
dam, whence it would start 011 its journey around
Cape Horn to Lima. The pedestal is ot Carrara
marble, sculptured in the Renaissance style. Two
of the sides arc ornamented with flower "and fruit
carvings; the third bears the Peruvian coat-of-arms,
with the lama, the olive tree and cornucopia*, and
the inscription, RrpuMira del Hern; the fourth side
bears the words, A Simon Holirar. Lihertador la
Nacion Peruana. Anno l)i. MDCCCLYUI. The
metal from which the statue was cast came from
Australia.
This statue was originally ordered three years ago
by the then President of Peru. The model was
finished by Tadolini. and ready to send to Munich,
when news was received in Rome that a popular
revolution had broken out in Peru, deposed the
President, and declared his contract with the Ro
man artist null and void. In tho summer of 1857,
the Peruvian people "experienced a change;" the
unfinished statue of the Liberator was again
thought of, and its execution and erection were
considered a national debt, to be cancelled as
soon as possible. Another contract was made,
and thirteen months time given for the completion
of the statue in bronze. The thirteen months
have not quite elapsed, and on the sth ultimo
the statue started from Munich on its journey to
Lima.
The Album of Virginia is completed. It contains

percent 60.000
Total Annual Interest $818,300
The past due interest on the mortgage bonds
which the company is unable to meet amounts to
8646,240, and there exist heavy liabilities to the
city of Cincinnati, and a floating debt of about
§530,000. The requirements of the road, essential
to its own improvement and permanency, will ex
haust the entire net earnings for several months to
come, rendering a further accumulation of interest
unavoidable.
At a meeting in November the Directors adopted
a preamble and resolutions from which the above
statements are taken. They also say, it is highly
desirable that the indebtedness of the Company
should be capitlaizcd or otherwise arranged, so that
the Company may be effectually relieved from the
payment, hereafter, of so large an amount of inter
est as is now accumulating.
Thecapital stock of the Company is now too large
to admit of such an increase, as will be sufficient
for the purpose of such capitalization, without cre
ating a capital stock which would bear an undue
proportion to the fair value of the road and appur
tenances, and which would therefore have but a
nominal value per share, thev therefore earnestly
recommended to the stockholders, the adoption of
some general and comprehensive scheme for the re
duction of the present bonded and stock capital,
and for the adjustment of liabilities, and the imme
diate appointment of a committee on the part of the
stockholders, at a general meeting to be called for
that purpose, to whom full powers to carry out a
proper plan shall be given, and the President was
directed to call such meeting at sucli time and place
as he may deem proper.
The stockholders met as already stated, and pass
ed resolutions which recognize the condition of the
company, and request the various parties inter
ested. viz: the Bondholders, the Floating debt
Creditors, the City of Cincinnati, to appoint a Com
mittee to represent their respective interests, to
meet a Committee of Stockholders, with authority
to consummate some arrangements for the reduction
of the bonded debt and stock capital of the Compa
ny, and for the adjustment of its other liabilities.—
Authorized tho appointment of a Committee on the
part of the Stockholders, empowered to agree to
some general and comprehensive plan that shall
equitably protect the various interests, and at the
same time effectually relieve the Company from
the heavy burthen of debt which is now crushing
out its energies and destroying its usefulness, and
freely commit their interests to the Committee.
All the Stockholders of the Company are recom
mended to unite with those present in the execution
of an authority to the Committee, authorizing
them to bind the subscribers respectively, by any
plan of adjustment which they may adopt for the
reduction of the stock capital and liabilities of the
Company.
V. Worthington. James C. Hall, J. 1). Leltmcr,
John Ross, and Y. D. M. Barlow, and the Chairman
of the meeting compose the Committee. A Power
of Attorney, giving the Committee full authority to
carry out the obj ?ct of the resolutions, was numer
ously signed, and left with the Secretary for addi
tional signatures.
DEATH OF ENGLISH NOBLEMEN.
The Montreal Transcript of Tuesday says it has
reliable intelligence that Lords Orosvencr and Cav
endish, and Hon. Mr. Ashley, have been killed by-
Indians. It says :
They came to this country with the twofold ob
j-ct of acquiring information and obtaining sport.
With this view they accompanied the Right Hon*.
Mr. Ellice as far as' St. Paul, Minnesota, and there
left him to proceed to the prairies of the far West
on a hunting excursion.
It appears that they there joined a portion of
the Sionx tribe of Indians: and that while on the
tramp they were met by a hostile party of the Crow
tribe. who set upon them, overpowered them, and
eventually murdered the whole.
Lord Bury, who is at present at Montreal and
from whom the news was received, has undertaken
the task of communicating the sad tidings to the
parents of the unhappy noblemen.
Lord Grosvener is a son of the Marquis of West
minster: Lord Cavendish, of the Duke of Devon
shire; and the Hon. Mr. Ashley, ol' the Earl of
Shaftesbury.

I ESCAPE FROM INDIANS.—The Waco (Texas) Demo-
I crnt says : i
While at Cora, last week, we learned Horn Judge ;
Chandler, Chief Justice of Brown county, that two
of the children of Joshua Jacks >n, a little boy about
11 years, and a little girl J years of age, had suc
ceeded in making their escape from the Indians,
and were found by some person and carric d in and
delivered up to their friends. The eldest daughter,
i fourteen years of age, taken at the same time, was
, found dead and scalped. The two little ones made
| their escape from the Indians about four miles from
i the place where the Cora boys had their fight,
I mentioned in another part of our paper. Ihey
' say there is with the Indians, a white man/(sup
| posed to be Tom Middlcton,) who paints hiinsclt
like an Indian every morning; and, also, a white (
woman about fourteen or fifteen years of age, !
j who does not pretend to talk English at all.
' The children say that it was her that killed their
| mother. They say the Indians left tliem (the chil
dren) in charge of the white man and woman at
' their camp, and went off and were gone some two
I or three days, when the white man and woman also
: left, telling the children if they attempted to escape
that they would be killed. The children went in
j search of water, and while out the Indians return
ed. and th<' little ones, remembering the threat, hid
themselves in a thicket for three days, until the In
dians left, and then started for the settlements, and
were found as above stated.
