LETTER FROM NEW YORK The Texas Pacific—The New Y ork Di rector* Fighting Over the Gauge-Tbr Three Feet Six Inch Gnuge Recom mended—Presidential Speculation*— Greeley, Groenbeck, Hoffman nnd Sumner—What Senators Say—General Logan Can't Think of a Candidate— The Thame* Embankment in New Y'ork. [Special Correspondence of the Republican.] New Y'ork, June 10.. The light over the Texas Pacific railroad did not terminate in the Senate and House, but it has been carried on between the di rectors and officers of the company in this city ever since tbc Senate adjourned in YVasbington. Senator Kellogg first introduced the Texas Pacific bill specifying a five-foot gauge— that being the gauge of all Southern rail roads. The committee to whom the bill was referred struck out the specified five feet, as put in by Senator Kellogg. The bill then went to the Senate, when the five eet clause was put in again, and the bill passed—yeas 40, nays 6. When the bill got to the House the com mittee recommended that the House strike out again the five feet clause and insert four feet eight inches, that being the gauge of all Northern railroads (with the exception of the Erie, which is six feet). It was argued in the House by Logan (then a member of Congress) that in case of a Mexican or Indian war a gauge four feet and eight inches on the Texas Pacific would enable Northern traius to run over the road. The lionse, however, passed the bill, with all gauge clauses stricken out. Thus the bill came from YVasbington tp New Y'ork, with a sort of silent under standing that the directors would favor that gauge which should be most convenient. It now turns out that about half of the directors are in favor of, not a five feet nor a four feet eight inch gauge, but a three feet and six-inch gauge. Their argument is bused upon the fact that England is con structing such railroads in India at a com paratively small expense, that a three feet six-inch track can be laid for $8000 per mile. So the three feet six-inch directors have been influencing editorials in the daily papers in favor of this gauge, aud it looks sure now that they will carry their point. The Russian and Prussian gauge is about the same as ours, and it is only England who has tried the narrow gauge. Senator Kellogg is still fighting for his original five feet clause. PRESIDENTIAL SPECULATIONS. The presidential discussion has com menced here in earnest. The Sun is run ning William S. Groesbeck—Johnson's old anti-impeacher—one day, and hoisting Mr. Greeley as the farmers' candidate the next. Groesbeck is a dead, cold, iceberg-of-a-man, and the hot blooded New Y'ork Democracy will never pick him up. He is even con sidered a very dead man in Cincinnati. Greeley would go strong among the farmer element and among people throughout the country. He is honest, and your corre spondent means to vote for him, even if he has heard him swear until a cloud of blue smoke wafted from his abominable, dirty sanctum in the Tribune office. Sherman is out with a flat declination. He "won't be a candidate, and won't serve if elected.'' Ilofi'man is the pet candidate pushed for ward by the young Democracy of New York. Tweed is bis Warwick behind the throne. Old Sam Tilden, who knocked Chase off the Democratic track in 1868, and boosted Seymour into Tammany Hall, is too old and dead to have much influence in the next convention. The boys will run the thing next time, and the atrocious Ameii cus Club, made up of gamblers and rich ring and confidence men. will manipulate the nominations of the once great Demo cratic party. W hen we get all through talking, Grant is the only real strong candidate upon whom the Republican party can or will unite. We don't like Grant personally, and we make this as a kind of nolens tolens ad mission. after thoroughly canvassiug the political ground in New Y'ork. YY'e have talked with Senator Nye, of Nevada, Conk ling, of New Y'ork. Spencer, of Alabama, and Morton and Ghaudler. of Michigan. Senator Sumner even shrugged his should ers as if the thing was as good as done when we mentioned Grant's candidature. Greeley is a little down on the two term possibility of the constitution, but be will go with his party. My experienee "down South,'' is that with all their "new departures," the Democracy which has many times betrayed the negro will not be trusted by him again. They will reason thus: "Maybe you are in favor of negro suffrage, and the fifteenth amendment; maybe you are, but we knmr the Republicans are." The Democrats of your State Legislature once surrendered to the negroes, but they were never accepted into absolute communion. Somehow or other, the negroes will remember that the Republican party, a good many years ago, did something which made them free, while another party were in. favor of slav ery. They will stick to the Republican party like the man who lashed himself to the anchor in a storm. And they are right. LOGAN TALKS. Among the young fellows ambitious of presidential honors is General Logan. YY'e know be expects to run, for we met him a few days since at the Fifth Avenue, and when we asked him who was his candidate he couldn't think of anybody. He was in a com plete quandary. " How about Grant, General ?" we asked. "YVell, Grant—why Grant has had one term in the YVhite House, and I'm inclined to think as Mr. Greeley does." " YVouldn't Sunnier run well 1" " No. Sumner is too old ; besides Grant would kill him with anti-office influence." " How about Chase ?'' " Oh ! he died in '68. • He's very dead." " Conkling ?" "He's too d—d peacocky: too many people hate him personally." "Ain't Fenton a strong man "YV'ell, yes; Fenton is strong and oily, too. He'd make a better YY'arwick than king. Then Conkling would run himself out of his patent leather shoes to kick him, even if it hurt his foot more than his colleague." And so we went on through Colfax, Blaine, Butler, up and down the gamut of the Senate and House, but Logan could not think ot a man—no, not one—who would be able to lead us to victory in 1872. OUR NEW DOCKS. General MoClellan has been laying out a like the Thames embankment. The frontage clear around the point of Manhattan Island is to be advanced 100 feet into the North and East rivers, and the hay at Castle Garden. Then the docks are to be made regular, and two railroad tracks are to run clear around the island. This one hundred feet, added to the seventy-fiv* feet which we now have, will give a splendid esplanade on which to do business and stroll. Then there will be regular pieces in stead of the hap-liazard projections built in every conceivable shape and form. This to the new improvements going on in all our city parks, from Castle Garden, Bowling Green, YY'asfiington, Tompkins', Union and Madison squares clear to the park, with its hundred feet boulevards running into West chester county, will make New Y'ork with out a rival in the world. _LANQON. Preservation of YY'ood. The following is an extract from the re. port of Dr. Joseph Jones. Professor of Chem istry in the Medical Department of the University of Louisiana. New Orleans, on the process of Mr. N. H. Thomas for the preservation of wood from decay and the action of water and marine animals: New Orleans, June 14,1871. * * * * In the process of Mr. Thomas the essential conditions for the thorough saturation and preservation oi wood with a cheap inoouous antiseptic fluid are com pletely fulfilled. The albuminous matters of the wood are coagulated and the sap converted into steam bv heat, and the wood, thus treated, is plunged into boiling rosin oil. The rosin oil permeates the pores of the wood, and not only prevents the introduction of mois ture anil oxygen, but it also, in virtue of its own indestructible and antiseptic proper ties (similar in most respects to those pos sessed by the material used by the Egyp tians in embalming dead bodies, and which has resisted decomposition for ages), pre serves the wood from decay anil the destruc tive action of plants and animals. YY'ood thus prepared is increased in tena city and specific gravity, and presents the appearance and properties of the fat light wood of the pitch pine, aud will resist for great periods of time decomposition in moist earth and waier; aud experiments have shown that it will not be attacked by the marine animals, which are so destruc tive to shipping and pilings in salt water. It is possible, l>y the process of Mr. Thomas, to convert any kind of porous wood and turn the most inferior qualities sap wood into dense, indestructible wood, of equal, if not superior quality to the best pitch pine. This process, applied to the wood used in pavements, houses, railroads, bridges, ships and wharves, will enhance the value of the materials at least threefold at a small addi tional cost. JOSEPH JONES. M. D . Professor of Chemistry. Medical Depart ment ot the University of Louisiana. New 466 St. Charles Immigration from North Carolina. Two or three weeks ago some sixty-three colored men left Tarboro, North Carolina, for the Teche region in Louisiana, induced to do so by the expectation of higher wages. YY'e learn from private correspond ence that on the morning of the ninth in stant over fifty more hands left the same point for the parish of St. Mary, in this State. The reason for this emigration from North Carolina and immigration into Lou isiana is that wages in North Carolina are only from five to twelve dollars a month. The Tarboro Southerner of the eighth in stant says: There have been several squads or com panies, not less than two or three hundred, of colored voters, during the past few months, carried from the farms contiguous to the town of Tarboro to Louisiana and other points South, by agents who offer large inducements to secure this immigra tion of Republicans. Decision* Affecting Bank Officer* nr.d Dealer* in Exchange. The following decisions of the Commis sioner of Internal Revenue, furnished by the Collector of this district for publication, will be of interest to bank officers and other dealers in exchange: A duplicate of either a foreign or domes tic bill, draft or order, or of any other paper, when executed and issued, should be stamped as an original. There is a specific tax upon all foreign bills drawn in sets of three or more. For every bill of each set, where the sum made payable shall not exceed $100 or the equiva lent thereof in any foreign currency, two cents; for every additional $100, or frac tional part thereof, two cents. When drawn singly or in duplicate, time bills should be stamped like promissory notes, and are never exempt when for a sura less than one hundred dollars. Demand bills should be stamped like bank checks, drafts or orders. Colonel James Nelligan, who has for a number of years past been a prominent member of this community, died yesterday morning at half-past eight o'clock. YY'e are informed that the cause of his death was a virulent cancer in the breast, rendering a surgical operation necessary, under which patient sunk. Colonel Nelligan was a native of the island of Jamaica, and had resided in the South many years. He was colonel of a regiment in the confederate service, but at the close of the war accepted the result, and settled himself in business in this city. His course since the reconstruction of the State has been in accord with that of the Republican party. Colonel Nelligan was a very popular man in this community, and his adhesion to the Republican party had no doubt a great influence among a large class. His funeral will take place this afternoon. Vacation in the Public 8chool*. The summer weather is fairly upon us, when confinement in a crowded room for several hours in the day is irksome. The Division Superintendent of Public Schools has, therefore, given the usnal notice of va cation, and the exercises that will precede that event, all of which will be found in Mr. Carter's notice elsewhere. Mr. Ovide DeBuys, a member of one of the oldest and most distinguished Creole families in the State of Louisiana, died yes terday morning, aged forty-six years. Mr. DeBuys was a son of General YY'illiam De Buys, who, some years ago, was distin guished in the political affairs of the State, Laving been at one time a member of the State Legislature. The subject ot this notice has filled hon orable public positions, in which his char acter for integrity and ability stood de servedly high. His amiable personal char acter also made him a favorite wherever he was known, and with all who were brought in contact with him. His death will be generally regretted. BY TELEGRAPH.

London, June 14. —The Times says of the treaty of YY'ashington: It was not England alone who yielded some of her claims. The United States also made great concessions. The Times considers it unprecedented that such a grave difference between nations as the Alabama claims should have been set tled without a resortto arms.

Republican Manifesto—Accusations Con tained in it—Discharge of Communist Prisoners—French Bishops Moving for Restoration of tbe Pope. Paris, June 14. —The Republican mani festo which appeared to-day is signed by eightv-one deputies of the left iu the As sembly. It accuses the monarchist dep uties of not keeping the agreement made at Bordeaux, whereby it was stipulated that partisan politics should be avoided, and charges that the legitimate members from the provinces are intriguing for the restora tion of a monarch and for intervention in Italy in lavor of the Pope. Many communist prisoners were dis charged to-day for the want of evidence against them. The Temps remarks that the French bishops are actively moving for the re instatement of the Pope in his temporal possessions. In the Assembly to-day General Troc* 11 continued the detense of his administration of military affairs. He gave a minute ac count of the sorties during the German siege of Paris, and of the reasons for mak ing them. He attributed their defeat to the fact that the Germans used their ar tillery only. The French, he believed, would have have engaged them. His main plan had been for a grand sortie toward Rouen, but after the victory of Coulmiers public opinion demanded a junction of the garrison of Paris with the army of the Loire, which was sheer madness. One of the greatest obstacles t» the con duct of a successful defense was the disor derly element in Paris, which was instigated to rebel by Bismarck, aud to this end was furnished with arms from the enemy out side. He stigmatized the commencement of the bombardment by the Germans without formal notice as an unparalleled violation of the rules of civilized warfare. The French Academy resumed its sittings to-day.

Versailles. June 14. —The official jour nal says the story of the executions in the Bois de Boulogne with mitrailleuses is an odious and absurd calumny. The journal also denies that the Orleans princes dined with Thiers. Prince de Joinville and Due D'Aumale visited Thiers unexpectedly. During the interview Thiers said though he was once minister of their father, he was to-day at the head of the republic. There was nothing significant in the visit. They understood the past and accepted the present situation. The Journal adds: Thiers did himself honor by his bearing during the interview, and the "republicans were unembarrassed the presence ot these illustrious and noble princes. ^ In order to combat Napoleonic intrigues, it is proposed to impeach the emperor for declaring and waging war. Roelieiort will plead that a military com mission is incompetent to try his case, and will demand a jury. • The administration respects the rules for bidding work on Sundays. All the journals approve of the coming visit of the Assembly to Paris, and regards it as the first approach to German recon ciliation with Parisians. The Gucht publishes a manifesto to the Paris electors against monarchy and favor of a republic. a of of 3. BERLIN.
