Commit lee of Arbitration for month of November,
iflonfrarg safe Commercial
BALTIMORE, NOV. 16,1560.
Stocks generally were better here again to day, and we
are happy to have to report a continuance of the improv
ed feeling in financial affairs noticed yesterday. The
banks, although they are governed by very conservative
views, are general ly aiding their customers to the extent
of their ability, and we learn that at one institution dis
counts to the extent of SIOO,OOO were made to-day. On
the street money continues very tight. Nothing but
strictly first class paper can be sold at all, but in this de
scription some limited transactions are making at 1# per
cent, per month. For paper which does not rate as
strictly first class, no quotations can be given, it being
impossible at this time to make sales of this description.
As we remarked yesterday the wants of parties engaged
in regular business pursuits are not excessive, and but
for other and more disturbing causes, money would be
comparatively easy.
At the Stock Board to-day there was some movement
in Railroad shares, and in both Baltimore and Ohio, and
Northern Central there was a further advance. Of North
ern Central the only sale made was one of 100 shares at
sls, which is an advance of % of a dollar on the closing
price of yesterday, but of Baltimore and Ohio there were
some 250 shares sold at the Board at ssS@s7# cash, and
$59 buyer 60 days, but after the Board a lot of 662 shares
of hypothecated stock was sold at SSB cash. The sales of
this stock show an improvement in it since yesterday of
$2 per share, but a decline since tfce opening of the week
of $lO to sll per share. A sale of lOOshares Canton Co.
was made to-day at sls, which is the same figure that
was obtained for it a few days since. The only
sale of Railroad bonds to-day i 3 one of SI,OOO Balti
more and Ohio 1885's at 80, which is a decline of 2
per cent. on the last sales. In Northern Central
1885's there was nothing done, but they closed at
58 bid, 58# asked. Of these bonds there have been $25,-
OCO sold this week at from 61, at which figure they open
ed, down to 58#, at which figure they sold yesterday.
Baltimore G's were lower again to-day. Sales were made
of $8,500 to day at 95 for 1875'5, and 97(a96# for 1890 ? s.
We note also a sale to day of SI,OOO Maryland coupon G's
at 102. In the Mining stocks the operations to-day have
been light, the sales embracing only 450 shares Spring
field at $1.95(5)2,1,000 shares Guilford at 90(2)85 cts., and
1,800 shares Consolidated at 40ct3. There was less dis
position to press Mining stocks to-day, and they were
generally stronger than on yesterday. Springfield closed
at $2 bid, $2.10 asked, and Gardner Hill at $3.80 bid, s4#
asked regular way.
The foreign imports into Baltimore for the week ending
on Thursday, amount in value to $113,227, of which
$14,255 were free, and $98,972 were duty paying goods,
but the value of the foreign exports from Baltimore for
the same period was $322,138 against $174,938 for the pre
vious week.
In New York to day Virginia 6's declined V; Missou

and Michigan Southern guaranteed $4; but Canton ad

unsettled, unsettled-
The New \ ork Tribune , of this morning, says :
The Stock market was quite active this morning, with
more disposition shown to deal on time. The hulk of the
transactions, however, is still on time. The feeling was
ttrong until the circulation of false rumors in regard to
the suspension of the Baltimore Banks created soine alarm
among the timid operators, and prices fell off. The mar
ket became firmer after the discovery of the falsity of the
rumors, but was still unsettled. Between the' hoards
there was some weakness, and at the second board con
siderable irregularity, although the Western shares were
generally better. Th< adjournment of the South Carol i -
na Legislature, and the more favorable commercial ad
vices from the South, have evidently hail a good influ
ence, and brought in buyers from the outside public, but
the improvement which might have followed has been
checked by tlie stringency in the money market. The
panic feeling has almost entirely disappeared, and the
market now appears to be goverwd by the usual influ
ences. The bourn do nut u..t ro-.v.H cu„ y n , ]( |
probably buy to cover more than they put out. It is gen
erally conceded that the Stock market will be feverish
and unsettled, certainly until after the South Carolina
Convention, and that the political element will he more
or less aggravated by the disturbance in commercial af
fairs consequent upon the agitation of the question of
secession, but it is also generally fell that the decline has
been inmost cases quite as large as the circumstances
justify, and that any attempt to depress stocks further by
the usual bear machinery might be dangerous and might
return to plague the inventors. There is also a steady
absorption of stock by parties who take the certificates
out of the street, ami this process must eventually arrest
the decline by taking off the market the surplus shares.—
At the close in the street there was not much activity,
and quotations were irregular. The thermometer of the
market, Central, was down to 73 7 ,, ;<:;inst 74% in the
morning. In State Stocks Missouri 6's were better, but
generally prices were lower. Railroad bonds were not
active, but some descriptions were better.
We notice no further improvement in money matters,
but paper, if anything, has rather less currency than yes
terday. A few strictly prime names have been passed to
day atß@9percent., but what aie usually considered
first-class names have been sold as high as 11V/12 per
cent. Jobbers and commission house paper 12fa)18 per
cent. Even at the above high rates, parties who are
driven into the street by the refusal of their banks to dis
count, find it impossible to place any considerable amount.
On demand, the supply of money is moderately free at 7
per cent, on choice collaterals We hear of a sale of 6 per
cent. Treasury notes due in January at % per cent dis
count. Those of lower rates of interest are unsaleable.
The Philadelphia Ledger , of to-day, saj*s:
Two or thr?e mercantile failures were reported here
yesterday and the day before. One is that of an old es
tablished firm, and one of the others is a small dry goods
house. We withhold the names, as it is possible an ar
rangement may be effected with creditors, and the busi
ness be continued as before. Our money market is more
and more stringent, the banks pursuing a steady course,
wisely strengthening themselves to meet any contingen
cy. Short A No. 1 bills can be placed at 8(q)10per cent.,
while longtime paper, not thoroughly approved, would
hardly command the money at 2 per cent, a month. Call
loans, with satisfactory collateral, arc effected at 7 per
cent. The news from Baltimore is that the run attempted
on one of the hanks was speedily checked by the prompt
payment of all claims. The market there, as here and at
New York, is stringent, but no failures of any account.—
There was a light business in stocks yesterday, the opera
tions of the entire day being included in sales of $21,900
of loans and about 4.000 shares, all except some 600 being
sh ires in Reading Railroad. The market opened cheer
fully, Reading at IS, an advance of # on the closing sale
of the previous day. It gradually sold down to 17#, and
closed at 17# bid and 17.94 asked.
The Louisville Journal , of Wednesday, says :
We are gratified to learn that our Kentucky Banks are
affording all possible aid to our men of business by dis
counting as much regular paper as a proper regard for
their own security will permit. More than this we have
no right to expect in the present excited state of the
money market and the inevitable necessity of suspension
which seme of the Southern States are forcing upon their
local banks. The extension of bank facilities at this time
would be a most dangerous policy, but our monied insti
tution3, being chartered as public conveniences, have a
duty to perform, and their interests to subserve, in carry
ing on the legitimate tradeof the community by granting
every facility which their condition will allow. Any
other policy would be ruinous to the country and to the
banks themselves, and we therefore expect* to see their
officers pursue the most liberal policy consistent with
their obligations to preserve the interests and safety of

ALCOHOL.—There have been some sales of Alcohol
made this week at 40cts per gallon, and we quote this as
the rate to-day for 95 per cent.
ALE AND PORTER—We have no change to note in
the rates for these articles, and we still quote Tennent's
Ale at $1.75 for XX Scotch, and $1.65 for Pale India in
pints, and Tenuent's Brown Stout in pints at $1.60 per
ASHF.S.—Ashes are still selling in New York at $5.25
per 100 lbs. for both Pot and Pearl, and we quote this as
the rate for them here.
BARK.—For Quercitron Bark there is still a good de
mand. It is however a shade lower in priee than it was,
and we quote it 'this week as ranging from $lB to 22 per
ton, for ordinary to prime. A sale of 25 tons prime was
made early in the week at $22, and several small lots of
ordinary have been sold at $lB per ton.
BEESWAX.—Beeswax is still quoted at 34@35 cts. per
lb., but we hear of no sales this week.
BRlMSTONE.—Brimstone may be quoted at S6O per ton
for crude Sicily, but there is very little here and we are
not advised of any sales.
BREAD—Bread is unchanged in price, and westill
quote it at 4# cts. for Navy. 5 cts. for Pilot, and 6 cts. per
lb. for Water Crackers, less the usual discount.
COFFEE.—There has been no movement in Coffee here
this week in consequence of the want of stock. Coffee is
however wanted, and it could be sold readily enough if
here, although probably not at as high rates as could have
been obtained a week or ten days since. Some sales were
made in New York a day or two since at auction at a de
cline of 1# cts. per pound on previous quotations. No
reliable quotations can be g' en for Coffee, and until there
shall have been some sales to establish prices wc shall
omit them. There have been no arrivals this week, but
the bark Wheatland from Rio, with a cargo of some 6,600
bags is reported below, and upon her arrival, we shall
doubtless be able to give more accurate information in re
lation to the condition of the market.
COTTON.—The demand has been lighter this week than
for sometime past, the favorable foreign news not affect
ing either prices or the demand. The sales amount to
about 400 bales ordinary to good middling Upland, Mem
phisand Gulfatfrom 8# to 13# cts., cash and six months.
The market closes dull, and without change from last
week's quotations, which we continue, viz:

CANDLES.—There has been very little doing this week
in Candles, but we have no change to note in the rates,
and we still quote Adamantine at i7(aS22 cts., as in quali
ty; Chemical Sperm at 28@30cts.; Sperm at 37@40 cts ;
and patent Wax at 45 cts. per lb. Mould Candles are sell
ing at I2tf cts. for Western, and 14tf @l6 cts. per ib. for
CHEMICALS. | Soda Ash is selling at 2#@2# cts. for i
80 percent., Sal Soda at $1.40(2)1.44, Bi-Carb. Soda at3#
@3# eta., Bleaching Powders at 2* cts., and Caustic
Soda at 5 cts. per lt.
COPPER.—Copper continues dull and heavy. Refined
Ingots are held at 21 # cts. cash, and 22 cts., 4 mos., but
there are uo sales making. We quote Sheathing as before
at 27 cts. for Baltimore, and 26 cts. per lb. for English.
Yellow Metal Sheathing is selling at 19# cts., Nails at 22
cts., and Bolts at 23 cts. per lb.
COAL.—The cargo rates for Cumberland Coal are still
as follows, viz: $3.15 for fine, $3.50 for run of mine, and
$4.25 per ton for lump, delivered on board at Locust Point,
but there is very little doing in it. Anthracite Coal is
selling from the yards at $4.75@5 per ton of 2.240 lbs.
FEATHERS.—Feathers may be quoted at 45(250 eta.
per lb. for good Southern and Western mixed. There are
however very few in market, and we hear of no sales.
FlSH.—Fish continue dull and very heavy. The re
ceipts have been large again this week, but there has
been very little inquiry for them, and so far as we have
heard, no sales have been made. Wequote Herrings as
before at $2 25 2.50 for Madgalen; $4.75(2)5 for Labrador;
Alewives at $4(2)4.50; and Mackerel at $4.75715 for small
No. 3's, $6.50(2)7 for medium do.. $9.25(2.9.50 for large do ,
and $9 50fa) 10 per bbl. for medium No. 2's., but the quota
tions are altogether nominal, and to effect sales to anyVx
tent, lower rates would have to be accepted. Dry Codfish
are still quoted at $4. and do. Hake at $2.75 per quintal.
FRUIT.—The cargo of Malaga Fruit received last week
by the brig "Behandige" was offered on Monday at auc
tion, and sales were made out of it of 500 whole boxes
layer Raisins at $2.47; 300 half boxes do. at $1.33(2)1.34;
800 quarter boxes do. at 76,277 cts.; 650 whole boxes

Grapes at $5 a5.25 each ; and 300 boxes Lemons at $3.20
(2t3.20 per box. The sales made comprised only a small
part of the cargo, and the balance was put in store. From
store Raisins are selling pretty freely at $2.40 for whole
boxes bunch, and $2.50 for layer, and at proportionate
rates for small pkgs. Green Apples continue to arrive
quite freely, and they are selling in lots as wanted at from
$1.75 t02.25 per bbl. We quote dried Apples nominal
at 3(2,4 cts., and Peaches at 7(28 cts. for unpealed, and 10
@l2 cts. per lb. for'pealed. Cranberries may be quoted
at $10,212 per bbl. for Eastern.
FLOUR.—There has been comparatively little done this
week in Flour, the sales adding up only about 7,000 bbls.,
against 15,000 bbls. last week. The market lias through
the week been quite unsettled, and within the last day or
two the leading descriptions have dropped off in price
12# to 25 cts. per bbl. The money pressure is beginning
to have an effect upon breadstuff's, and for some days past
it has been exceedingly difficult to find cash purchasers
of Flour, although there are plenty of buyers on time,
which, with money at 1# to 3 per cent, per month hold
ers generally, very wisely, we think, decline giving. The
market for Flour closes dull and decidedly heavy. The ex
ports this week are us follows, viz*

1.200 bbls. being made at $5 37#. and 1,100 bbls. at
$5.25 per bbl.. To-day it was freely offered at $5.25 per
bbl., but the only sale we could hear of was one of 150
bbls., and it may be quoted as closing dull and heavy at
this figure. We have heard of no sales of Extra this week.
It was held early in the week at $5.87#@6, but we quote
it as closing to day dull at $5.75 per bbl.
OHIO FLOUR.—There were sales early in the week of
600 bbls. choice Ohio Extra at $5.95,100 bbls. standard

CITY MILLS FLOUR.—There have been sales this week
of 1,200 bbls. City Mills Super, all on time, at $5.25 per

ing in standard Extra, but we quote it nominal at $5.75
(20 per bbl. Fancy brands of Extra are however selling
in small lots at $7(27.50 per bbl.

dray load at SO, and the best brands of Baltimore ground

100 lbs. for common brands, and $3(2)3.25 for Matthews'
CORN MEAL.—The market for Corn Meal continues
quiet. We have reported this week sales of 500 bbls.
Brandy wine at $3.62# per bbl., and of some small lots of
Baltimore at the same figure, but the latter description
may be quoted as closing at $3.50(2)3.62# per bbl. The
exports this week amount to only 351 bbls.

GRAIN.—The receipts of Grain this week somewhat
exceed those of last, but they have nevertheless not been
large, the offerings at the Corn Exchange of all descrip
tions amounting to only about 147.000 bushels. During
the early part of the week Grain generally was active
and quite firm, but for some days past the market for it
has been dull and depressed The export demand for
Grain keeps up, and we note the clearance from this port
this week of 60,000 bushels Corn, and 20,000 bushels Wheat
to Liverpool, and 4,200 bushels Wheat to Halifax.
WHEAT.—Wheat has been in rather better supply this
week than last, the receipts amounting to about 85,000
bushels, which is an excess of about 30,000 bushels over
those of last. The demand at the opening of the week
was active, particulary for the better grades, and prime
reds, which were wanted for export, brought an advance,
but within the last two or three days the demand has
slackened materially, and for all descriptions prices have
given way. Red sold early in the week at 130(2)140 cts.
for good fair to prime, and for a lot of choice Zimmerman
143 cts. was paid, and white ranged at from 130 to 140 cts.
for medium, 145(2 155 cts. for fair to good, and 160 to 165
for prime and choice lots, lmt for a day or two past red
has been selling at from 120 to 135 cts. for fair to prime,
and white at 110(2)115 cts. for common, 120(2)130 cts. tor
medium, 135(2)140 cts. for fair, 145(2)155 cts. for good to
prime, and 16u cts. for fancy parcels. The market closes

Pennsylvania. We quote Maryland to-day at 70(572 cts.,
and Pennsylvania at 78 cts. per bushel.
CORN.—Corn lias through the greater part of the week
exhibited considerable firmness. There have been about
40,000 bushels at market and most of the lots of old re

yellow, anl from 72 to 77 cts. for white. New Corn, of
which there have been some arrivals this week, has been
selling at from IS to 55 cts. for white, and 55562 for yel
low in fair order, but new white hominy Corn has been
selling at 70@75 cts. per bushel. To-day Corn was very
dull, particularly old white, and for all descriptions prices
were lower than on yesterday. Some sales of old yellow
were made at 69'a 71 cts., but nothing was done so far as
we could learn in white. Old WHS held at 72@75 cts., but
buyers were only offering 65(570 cts. for it.
OATS. —Oats have been in fair supply this week the re
ceipts amounting to about 20,000 bushels, but the market
for them has throughout the week been rather dull. The
greater part of the receipts have however been sold at

vania do. at 32(5)35 cts. per bushel.

bushels, one-half of which amount was sold to-day. The

and inferior new, and [email protected] per bushel for good
to prime new, and we quote good to prime new as closing
to-day firm at the figures named above. In addition to
the sales noted above, we have heard of a sale this week
of 7 tons in one lot to go ouc of the market on private
terms. Timothy seed is dull at [email protected], and we quote

Harley, of tne British ship Culloden, recently ar
rived at Mobile, Ala., with passengers from Liver
pool, was alleged to have treated his passengers
with great cruelty, especially Miss Mary McDon

drenched with water, on several occasions. A dein
onstralion having been made to lynch the Captain,
some prominent gentlemen of Mobile had him ta
ken to the jail for safe keeping. A public meeting
held at the Circuit Court-room on the 9th inst.,

THE VOTINO IN NAPLES.— On the morning of the
election in Naples, Garibaldi went early to vote for
annexation. He afterwards appeared at the balco
ny of the Hotel d'lnghilterra, and made a brief
speech, ending with the popular gesture, which
consists in raising the right hand with the forefin
ger only extended. It means One Italy. Two Eng
lish girls were at his side, wearing scarlet jackets,
the Garibaldi uniform. All the employees of the
old Government voted for annexation. In Procida

their houses, many of them found themselves locked

WASHINGTON, NOV. 16.— The State Department :
has received advices from Minister Harris, dated i
Vedo, July 5 th. liestates that the Japanese steam
er Candinmurrah had arrived from San Francisco, !
and that on her return voyage she was navigated
by the Japanese alone. This is the first instance I
of a vessel, conducted solely by Asiatics, suecss- I
fully crossing the great North Pacific Ocean, and !
strikingly proves the Japanese to be so capable of
improvement that they might soon place themselves
at the head of Oriental enterprise if they were al
lowed freely to cultivate the great powers they pos
sess. The Tycoon had conveyed his thanks to Mr.
Harris for the friendly and cordial manner in which
the commander and officers of the steamer were re- j
ceivedby theauthoritiesand peopleofSanFrancisco,
and particularly for the complete repairs made to
the vessel at Mare's Island and the kindness and
courtesy of Commandant Cunningham. The report
of the officers of the steamer, and letters received
from the Embassy with accounts of their reception j
at San Francisco, and the kindness shown to them j
by all classes of our people, have produced a lively |
sensation, especially among the nobles heretofore [
opposed to the treaty of Yedo.
Mr. Harris is of opinion that when the Ambassa- I
dors return, their narration of travel will lead to |
a bettjr state of feeling on the part of the Japanese
towards us and towards intercourse with foreign !
nations generally.

GRAND JURY.— By the provisions of section 218 of J
the Public Local Laws of Maryland, it is made the I
duty of every Judge of an election, immediately nf- :
ter the election at which they shall have acted, to ap- j
pear before the Grand Jury .of the Criminal Court I
of Baltimore citv when in session, to be examined
touching any and all violations of the provisions of
the constitution, or of this article, or any other!
law relating to elections, of which they may have
personal knowledge, or which they miiy have rea
sonable ground to believe to have been committed
at such election. Every Judge failing to appear as j
aforesaid, prior to the adjournment of the Grand
Jury, shall be liable to a penalty of five hundred j
dollars, to be recovered by the Board of Police by I
civil action, in the name of the State, unless the j
Judge so failing to appear shall have furnished to!
the Grand Jury, before their adjournment, his eer- ]
tificate signed under oath before a Justice of the j
peace, that he did not know and had no reason to be
lieve, tnat any such offences had been committed at j
any such election, such certificate to be returned by ;
the Grand Jury to the Court and preserved and re- j
corded by the clerk thereof.
Section 220 provides that it shall be the duty of j
the Grand Jury to makeprosentment to said Court, !
on their adjournment, of all judges of election who j
shall have failed to appear as before stated, who j
shall be immediately arrested and held to bail to
answer at the ensuing term. Also that such pre
sentments shall be laid before the next Grand Jury,
by the State's Attorney, which body shall find on 1
said presentments. It further provides that the
Court shall give the article in relation to elections
in charge to each and every Grand Jury, at the
time of any election held in said city or next there
after; and any failure of the Court or State's At
torney to perform the duties by this section im
posed on them, are declared to be acts of criminal
misbehavior in office on their oart respectively.
A very large number of the Judges of the last
election have failed to appear before the Grand
Jury, as required by law, and that body being
about to closeits labors for the present term, have i
caused attachments to be served upon the follow- j
ing named Judges, made returnable this morning, |
before the Judge of the Criminal Court, to answer
for contempt of Court, in not appearing before said
body as required to do by provisions of the law.— |
Some of the Judges named below have not appear- |
ed before the Grand Jury at ail, while the majori
ty of them made a return subsequent to Ibe elec
tion for Mayor. The costs of the attachment will
amount to about two dollars, and it would be as |
well for those attached to come prepared, i

tion. The sale is under the immediate patronage
of the State. Messrs. Taylor <fc Gardner, No. 1 Ger
man street, will send an agent to Macon to overlook
the interests of Baltimore shippers. The Baltimore

ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. — Yesterday afternoon, about
2 o'clock, a man named John Montgomery, hailing
from New Bedford, jumped off' the Pratt street
bridge into the Falls, and would have drowned

GRAND LEVEE. —The Grand Levee given under
the auspices of the Independent Order of Odd Fel
lows, will take place on Monday evening next,
at the elegant Hail, Gay street. The Library Com
mittee, to whom (lie preparations have been en
trusted, have been unusually active, and no doubt
the affair will be one of the most superb which has
ever taken place in this city. These annual levees
are among the most elegant entertainments of that
character which take place in our city. The ac
commodations for dancing are all that could be de
sired, and care has been used in the selection of
musicians, so that this great essential in giving in
terest to ail levees will not be wanting.
SERIOUS ACClDENT. —Yesterday afternoon about
two o'clock, a young man twenty years of age,
named Priest, was engaged working on the roof of
a house on Fayette street, near Chestnut street,
when his foothold gave way and he was precipita
ted to the ground, a distance of twenty-five feet.
His face struck the ground, and his upper jaw was
broken, the fronth teeth all knocked out and his
lower jaw fractured in two places, and the flesh
torn from the chin. He was carried into his fath
er's house near by, where Dr. J.W. Honck dressed
the wounds.

sworn.—On the day of the shooting, witness was
standing on Caroline st. below Fleet; heard report
of a pistol at Kate Shriver's house; saw Basketts
and Braden run from house; went over and Bill
Lynch was leading Jocko from the house; he was
shot in the ear : Basketts had a pistol when he ran
away.—By MrTCowan: Heard Jocko was hurt after
he had received this shot; he had his bead cut in a
fight; did not knock about much after that. H.
Williams, sworn—Witness, Jocko and several
others, had been to Patterson's Park to fire a sa
lute; returned to the Point, and Jocko and witness
went into Kate Shriver's to tako a drink; after a
few minute 3, Basketts opened the door and struck
Jocko three times with a pistol, knocked him
down and shot him. By Mr. Cowan—Basketts
was alone; did'nt see Braden; witness than ran out
the back door; tho house is on Caroline, between
Lancaster and Alice Anna.——Ann Moncrief, sworn
—Went to Kate Shriver's with Eliza Smith; Jocko
and Williams came in afterwards; Basketts opened
the door and looked in; Jocko said, "Basketts,
you think you've got us all right;" Basketts said,

Worked at tho wood-sasving establishment directly
opposite the house of Kate Shriver; had seen some
fighting about there that day; in the afternoon
noticed four men standing on the pavement next to
the house; saw a woman in the house beckon,from
a window upstairs, to these men, put up two
fingers and then point to the door; saw two men ap
proach the door; one a large man, in light clothes,
with a light slouch hat and light hair; the man
opened the door, struck inside with his right hand,
and then drew a pistol from under his coat and
fired; they then all ran off; saw the wounded man
come out, walk some ten or twelve paces, and then
fall to the pavement; the man who fired was not the

Basketts worked at the time with witness, at
Gellston's Mill; the Rough Skins came there and
chased Basketts from his work; they were often

It may surprise some people to hear that we are
still suffering under Spanish persecution. There has
been no auto da fe. That would indeed have been
a famous bit of intelligence, such as would have put
in the shade the Prince of Wales, Garibaldi, the
Pope, the China expedition, the Syrian massacres,
the Road murder, and everything else. Rut we
cannot announce that a hair of anybody's head has
been singed. Heads of respectable firms, Protestant
bankers, rich Quakers, and others who do not fancy
the smell of faggots, can travel in Spain with per
fect impunity and free from terror. The grievance
that we have to state is, there is at present a very
ridiculous law in Spain against the '•profession" of
any other religion than the Roman. This "profes
sion" includes all acts of united worship, anytning
like the meeting of a congregation even in a private
house. It is due to the Spanish Government to say
that this law is in practice much mitigated; still,
anv act of united Protestant worship, even in a
private bouse, brings the owner under the power of
the Alcalde of the place, who can immediately im
prison him. Indeed, the penalties assigned to this
act by the letter of the law are terrible—the gal
leys, ten years' imprisonment in fetters and with
hard labor, and summary expulsion, the latter being
a punishment which, though tolerable in itself,
might involve sudden ruin, as tearing a man from
his business. Nor are such penalties entirely theo
retical, as we are informed a recent instance has
proved. Rut, not to calculate on such extreme re
sults, the present state of the law in Spain practi
cally prohibits to a large extent united Protestant

THE SUGAR Caors OF CUBA. —There are at pres
ent, or were in full operation during the last sea
son, 1,365 sugar estates in this Island, which pro
duced, this year, 1,127,348,750 lbs., equal to 563,-
G74 tons of sugar. Out of these 1,365 plantations,
there are 940 using steam power; 7 with water
power, and 409 with ox power, the old, or primi
tive style.
The total extent of land planted with cane on
these plantations, is 691,917 acres, while the area
on the estates used for other purposes, viz: cattle
fields, fruit, vegetable gardens, &c., comprise
1,289,650 acres, or nearly double the quantitv used
for cane.
If the weight of each box ot sugar is put down
at the average of 425 lbs., net, it will be seen that
the whole production of the year is equal to 2,662,-
SSO boxes, which, at the prices that have ranged
since January can be well estimated at sl7 per
box, making the total value of the crop $45,093,-
860. If to this we add the value of the molasses
and rum produced on our sugar estates, it will
swell the amount to a very large extent.
It is worthy ol notice, that the proportion of pro
duction to the land under cultivation, is much
smaller in the Western than in the Eastern depart
ment—the latter yielding at the rate of nearly 5
boxes to the acre, whilst the former is little over
3-% boxes, and yet the number of estates in the
Eastern department are less than one-third of those
in the Western. This is a matter worthy the atten
tion of the planters in this section of the Island, as
we believe it is a fact which has not hitherto been
proven, although often alluded to. For the present
wc must limit our figures to the following:
Departments. No. Estates. Acres Cane. Am't Sugar.
Western 1,065 641.680 1,022,880,250
Eastern 300 50,233 104,468,500
Total 1,365 691,913 1b5.1,127,348,750
Thus it will be seen that the production of sugar
this year reached 563,674 tons, which, if our me
mory is not amiss, is more than double the quantitv
ever produced in Louisiana in any year (1553, we
believe, was the largest crop, i. e., 269,360 tons),
the number of plantations in Louisiana this year
being 1,308, or 57 less than in Cuba. The produc
tion of our plantations in 1859 and '6O, calculating
the weight of boxes at 425 lbs. net each, and the
hhds. at 1,200, 1,350, 1,150, and 1,500, according to
the different sections of the country, is estimated
to have been

Totals 1,339,658 355,61" 1,315.942 418,050
If we calculate the excess in weight this year at
the rate of 425 lb3. per box, the true result will ap
pear to be equal to 153,600 bxs. more this year than
The amount of land on these 1,365 estates not
used for cane, as we have already stated, is no less
than 1,289,650 acres.

CHARLESTON, NOV. 15. —The excitement in this
State, as well as Georgia and Alabama, has sensibly
diminished within a day or two past, and the con
servative portion of the people (and more especial
ly the commercial classes) are anxious for a speedy
end of the commotion that exists. The refusal of
the New York bankers to endorse or purchase ster
ling bills sent from this city, had a very perceptible
and healthy efFeet upon the banks here, while the
heavy discount that was levied on South Carolina
bank notes at the North, and the serious manner in
which the credit of the State was being shaken, has
aroused the indignation of our conservative citizens,
who contend that matters have gone far enough
and that the best interests of the State demand that
frond feeling 1 toward the North shall once more,
and speedily, he restored. With regard to many
of the stories and reports sent from here, at least
one-half are wholly destitute of foundation.

i Special Despatch to the N. Y. Herald ]
MONTGOMERX, Ala., Nov. 13.—The Governor ol
the State will issue a call for a State Convention,
to assemble on the Gth of December. He urges the
people to prepare for secession.
I send you the leading points in the letter of
Governor .Moore. After enumerating the wrongs
that the South has endured from the Federal Gov
ernment, ho continues as follows: "In full view,
and i trust, just appreciation of all my obligations
and responsibilities, otlicial and personal, to my
God, my State and the Federal Government, I sol
emnly declare that in my opinion the oniy hope and
future security for Alabama and other slaveholding
the necessity IWcb'Sfli/jPlu deplore
has been forced upon me and those who agree with
me, by a wicked and perverse party, fatally bent
upon the destruction of institutious vital to tbe
Southern States: a party whose constitutional rights
we have never disturbed, and who should be our
friends—yet they hate us without cause. We should
remember that Alabama must act and decide the
great questions of resistance or submission for her
self. No other State has the right or power to de
cide it for her. She may and should consult with
other slaveholding States to secure concert of ac
tion, but still she must decide the question for her
self and co-operate afterwards. What will the in
telligent and patriotic people of Alabama do in the
impending crisis? Judging of the future by the
past, I believe they will prove themselves equal to
present or any future emergency, and never will
consent to affiliate with or submit to be governed
by a party who entertain the most deadly hostil
ity towards them and the institution of slavery.—
They are loyal and true to the Union, but never
will consent to remain a degraded and dishonored
member of it."
The New York Tribune of yesterday says :
Whenever a whole section of this republic—
whether a half, a third, or only a fourth—shall
truly desire and demand a separation from the resi
due, we shall earnestly favor such separation. If
the fifteen slave States, or even the eight Cotton
States alone, shall quietly, decisively say to the
rest,"we prefer to be henceforth separate from yon,"
we shall insist that they be permitted to go in peace.
War isa hideous necessity at best, and acivil conflict
—a war of estranged and embittered fellow-country
men —is the most hideous of all wars. Whenever
the people of the Cotton States shall have defini
tively and decisively mads up their minds to sepa
rate from the rest of us, we shall urge that the
proper steps be taken to give full effect to their
Let us, then, have no reciprocal taunts, re
proaches, nor menaces; no bitterness; no passion.
If the South really prefers to "go it alone," wo urge
that tbe North should not, and we believe that she
will not, undertake to pass judgment upon the
validity or sufficiency of the reasons alleged for
such alienation. If the Union be really oppressive
or unjust to the South—nay, if the South really
believes it so—we insist that a decent self-respect
should impel the North to say—"We think you
utterly mistaken; but you hive a right to judge for
yourselves; so go if you will."
[ from the Mercury.]
This election is no holiday amusement. This is
no time Tor personal or party divisions. Our
course here upon this occasion, is to have a pow
erful moral influence, not only upon this State,
but upon the other Cotton States. This is not
merely a Convention to inaugurate the secession
of the State from the present Federal Government;
but its future destinies are to be wielded, and its
future connections made with Foreign Powers, and
other States North and South. Its powers are un
limited, and it will fit perhaps for many months.—
Its province istosee that the State receives no
detriment, and it will sit so long as its counsel or its
action shall be necessary to the State, to ward off
peril, or to secure our Future power and prosperity.
Its mission is the gravest that can devolve upon
any deliberate assembly, and the position of our
people in this election partakes of its gravity.
It is a time when passions, personal or "party,
should be stilled—when every man should regard
himself simply as a citizen of South Carolina.
And for her welfare let all men unite.
Already we hear rumors of men being offered as
candidates from ail parts of the city. This is
wrong. This is no time for contest. We have
this suggestion, therefore, to make:
It is desirable there should be but one ticket run
in these parishes—but twenty-two names offered,
upon which all parties, except Union men, can
unite. Let the twenty-two names be selected by
the leading men of the two old parties here, eleven
being of each party. Of course, after the action
of our legislature," with a view to secession, it is
expected, and will be required, that each man,
whose name shall go upon the ticket, shall be
pledged, under his hand, to vote for the immediate
secession ol the State, in any event,before January
1, 1861.
The names decided upon will then be submitted,
through a public meeting called for the purpose,
to the approval and support of the i chole communi
ty, without any division or difference as to a choice
of individuals. The public good demands such an
AH party lines will then be healed up upon an
equal compromise of men; a glorious unanimity of
sentiment and determination will be exhibited to
the whole State, to the whole South, and to the
North. It will be a great triumph for the State,
ft will spread courage abroad throughout the
State and the South, like Sight from the bright sun
upon our soil. Then will- we learn whether the
people of this Commonwealth are "the spoilt child"
to bo "spanked" into "submission to the rule of the
Northern majority," Let us ali be true to our be
loved State. . .
We make this proposition with all sincerity, and
if adopted will sustain it in entire good faith to afl
parties. .
[ From the Courier. \
The electoral body of Charleston must seek out
diligently the wisest and worthiest citizens, of ripe
judgment and approved fidelity, and must and should
call such, aud such only, to this great office. Those

expressed choice of the Electors should overrule
