Colonel 1". J. Downiug suited at tLe hoad ot nnottnr

lian's expedition was ccmpo. ed oi three nur -lflceut
Iron steamers, with altogether throe thousand despe

and two thousand live hundred men. riot a single

been ariangcd oo cleverly that noihing whatever
was known of it untd it was completed.
ibenamoul ttie sicatnoiR have not as yet been
ascertained, aid whether they sloped eft without
clcaiance or under very pacific names is not et
known. ro many times have strange rumors been

were scon coming to and rrom the AfofUt mansion,
biinginp away large eases ot aims and ammunition,
or something el. e, and were observed going ia the'
Be.f aborliood of the North liver. It was only too
plain that soniethlug ot a vert urgent nature was
going on, judging from the amount of whispenng
and the excited manner ol all the former official in
the civil department, who have now bid larewell,
probably forever, to their laborious diuics in the

There is a rood deal of disappointment a mono;
thote who were lelt behind. However, they were
somewhat consoled by the intelligence at headquar

least a lartre number oi ti em, would have an op

It is asserted at headquarters that the steamers are
able to run eighteen knots an hour. The rumor
about Stephens i being lu New York was without
any foundation, aud bad been thrown out bvthe
Fenisn8 themselves, in order to try and put tbe
British authorities off the scent. I he most efficient
seamen that could be secured are on board the
vecsels. Expeditions are reported to have sailed
from other ports in the Unlttd States, all bound lor
Bermeda, Iroin which point the final expedition to
Ireland will be started, commanded by Colonel
. John O'Mahony.
This is the O'Mahony side of the situation. Now
for the Sweeney view.
There is rather unusual news going the rounds of
Feuiai.lt-ro. It wns started by the olllcul organ ot the
' Killun-O' ilnbouy party, which d.tolared that "tne
actors were going in their plp.eos," and the curtain
would rise at once aud show action to the bond,
holders, when it was nssuuied another large sa e of
bonds would result. The publio comment is, that the
Killian paity give up the idea of fighting in Ireland,
aud seeing that tne KoLerta-Sweeuey Canadian
policy Is going to he the wiuiiug one a tier all, deter
' mine to checkmate that movement by making a sort
of premature rush on the intended theatre of
Sweeney's operations, thus forcing taat movement
to strike beiore thoroughly prepared, and hazard
It is the common talk about town that tbe an

In all probability before this morning's edition of
the Word can roach l' suhscrilinn in the more d s
taut portions ol tho United States, the American
people will hear of the long-expected and ofuen
deterred invasion ot British soil by the military
loice aoting with and by order of Head Contre
John O'Mahony. During the hut two weeks tho
officials ot Union Squaro have been very myaterous
in their movements and reticent in communicating
Intelligence ot the Fenian organization to the press.
Vanous rumois have boon circulated in consequence
as to what wss transpiring at the headquarters at
Union fqume, in the secret sessions of the Central
Council. However, by a littlo strategy, our Foman
reporter succeeded, yesteraay, in obtaining informa
tion ot the most startling nature, In regard to Uis
movement now on loot against the British empire,
l'.ans have matured, and forces organized, anil tt is
probable that the first b ow has a'ready Leon struct,
The point ot attack is the Hand of Campo Bello,
in ti.e Bay ot Fundv, at tho entiance ot I'assama
quoddv Bay. The island ol Campo Bello is about
eight miles in lmiktb bv three in breadth, and is a
puitol the territory of Aew Biunwick. ft. Johns,
with its rich shipping aud commodious harbor, is
ai out forty miles distant from Campo Bullo. and
can to reached in a few licuu I y uuuns ol steam
commiuiicalion. Directly onpeshe Is the coast of
Nova Scotia, th'riv-jlx to loi ty miles distant, with
good harbor for lieht vessels ctipiDle of transporting
two or three hundred men eaoh lrom Maclua, B31
tust, Conine, Baton, llxngor. l ort and, or tbo small
cluster ot islands in I'enobscot Uay.
The plan of operations, as far as oan be ascer
tained in tho hurry ot the moment, is to
have five or six hundred mon transported, in
small Kpiads oi a hundred each, by railroad,
11 order to prevent notice bv the United
iSfates t.ovcrnu'ctit, to MRshias, Mane, and to
march the men, who are to bo we 1 mobitfzod, to
Mad ias duilng the night lor embaikation at Ma
chirs, where Lovcial scliooneig are in wailing. As
soon asthe men are embarked, the vK-.els wilt leave
Marhias for Campo lioho Islund, wtnc'i is about
twentv-hve miles distant, and a landing will be
effected. (Should au airay interfere to prevent the
spiling ot the vermis, the marc:i will bo madeover
iand i.lonp anoint ot land 10 Kastport, two:vo miles
distant from Macbiss, or to l'er. y, directly opposite
tbo is and ol Campo Bello. where the ship channel,
ai out three miles in width, will aflora ea-y means
of landing by means of smsll boats, or a bridge of
boais, as the case may require. A oouple of print
ing piesses will accompany the raid, aud as soou as
a landing is effected in Campo IteJ.o, proclamations
will be issued and telegraphed tliroii'.'Uoiit the
United States, calling upon (be Fenian Brotherhood
to respond to the call, aud it is oxo 'ctad vo un era
in areat numbers will flock to the standard of O'Ma
hony, who is not to accompany tho expedition in
person, it is also expected that the occupation ot
British territory bv aimed Fenians will cause an
immense sale 01 bonds, to the amount ot two or three
millions 01 dollars.
But it is not expected by tho Fenian leaders in
command of tne expedition thai Campo Boilo can be'
occupied by their lo.ces wiinout a ti jht. and a first
engagement maybe exi eoied whon the landing is
attempteo with the British troops already Btatioued
there. It is the intention of O Mahony to attack and
defeat the inadequate foice stationed at Campo
Bello, and then hold the island and wait until rein
lorccmcntocan be obtained from tho United titateg.
The Government of New Brunswick have been 111
possession of mioi motion in regard to the proposed
attack n tbe island of Campo Hello lor ton davg
past, and, as a precaution, have sent a small body
ot trooi-s to defend tne isiand. Mujor-beiieral
Doyle, in command at Halifax under tue Instruc
tion of Mr WiiliHin Fenwick Williams, has detac'iod
a Dody ol voluntceia and regulars to Camio Bello,
it is understood, and field artdiory and stores have
also Leen sent to that point, how tho Colonial
authorities became informed of the movement is
unknown, but it is claimed by the Canadian jour
nals that information is furnished tegularly Dy
some poison at Union Square, who is in tho confi
dence of O'Mahony. It is also stated that a high
ofbcial of tbe O'Mahony government is a most inti
mate liund of Thomas Darcy Metjee, and that the
movement has been planned by the high contending
powers, in order that tbe Koboita-Sweenoy move
ment may prove aboitive, as 11 is expected that Pre
sident Johnson wi l ibsuo a proclamation eutorciug

No little whisper has been creatxl in Fenian
circles by the sudden departure of B. Doran Killian
lrom tbis city an Monday last, aud all day yesterday
and on Tunsday vague reports were afloat ihat some
thing extiaordmary was on the carpet.

Ou the other hand, it la claimed bv those well
learned in the secret 01 Fcnlanism, that tbe expe
dition haa leen on the carpet tor some timo, and that
every preparation has eeen made to render the exne
ditlon success. Subjoined will be found a lull
collection of tha tacts connected with the affa r, if
Fenian sources of information may be considered
nnanrstionabie The account below has been col
lated by onr reporter from the most aoec-eible Fe
nian fourcrs. and nothing is set down except what
is sustained by the asfeveiatlons of Fen ans of high
cfl.ee in connection with t' e movement The details
are somewhat meagre, but aro sufficient to give an
idea ot the strength ot tbe alleged.
Tho authorized statement from the O'Mahony
headquarters la to the eflpct that U. Doran Kilhan,
whilom Secretary 01 the Trea-ury F. B., started on
Monday evening in company with an exitedition,
consisting of three steamers two propel, ers and
one side-wheel steamer of taat sailing qualities nn
rival ed. The expcdi ion wai fitted out with 8000
men well ofheend, both officers and men being
mostly composed ol veteran soldiers who have fought
durirg the 'ate war with tbo south Those vessels
aie well armed aud equipped, one of them being a

roit guns one lore and one aft and four nflod
guns ol the ncavit it calibie amidships. Large quan
tises ol ammnnl Ion and sprue arras have bo, 11 put
on board, all intended to find their ultimate destina
t.on in Irolpnd.
'I be second part ot the expedition is composed of
a couple 01 propellers, capable of making eighteen
mucs per hour under a lull head 01 steam. These
vessels are also lully armed and equipped, and have
on board a complement ot 2730 men, besides thoie
mi'ttisary to m-cage the yessels. these men have
all teen selected from tho klild votorans 01 tue late
war with tbe nnuth, and are fully armed aud
equipped for seivue in the Held.
1 hese vessels are said to bo fitted nut with a view
to the sevoro-t naval combat, if rondeied nooessary
by any contingency, and are thought to be equal to
anv emergency which, with the exercise ol due cau
tion, can possibly occur.
ISoth expeditions are in tho hands of eminent
Fenians, and nre commanded by experienced naval
oflicers, who have seen service dining tho war, Cap

men of ability and expericuoe.
The plan is undcrs ood to bo to seize Bermuda,
and make it a base of siipp iej. alter which, with as
little delay as possible, the who e expedition will be
put to sea, 1011107 upon British commerce, and

Other expeditious will follow at as early a date as
possible. Those will be designed to operate ditccilv
upon tho Irish coast, where, at a given point, a land
ing will be eil'ected.
It is also claimed in Feuian circles, that Stephens
will bo in Ireland long belore the lauding of tbe
expedition, h-s present whereabouts being at a
certain point on tbe coast of Fiance, witoiu easy

Trial of Jeff. Davis,
Reliable Information hss been received here
to-day from Rlrhmond, to the etTect that a move
n ent is on fool to obtain a writ of habeas corpus
for the release ot Jefferson Davis. The writ in
question may issue either from the United States
District Court, Ju,1ge UnderwooJ presiding, or
from a Rate C'jurU It Is not likely that a man
of Underwood's well-known views would grant
a writ for such a purpose. The civil trial of
Davis will now be strongly urged. He can be
held in this district under the indictments pond
ing against him in the Supreme Court of the
Mrs. JefTensoo Davis
and ; General Dick Taylor have both received
permission to visit Jefferson DaviB, aud he
will soon be released on habeas corpus, as under
tue President's proclamation he can bo no
longer held as a prisoner under mere military
authority, and under the decision of tho Supreme
Court ycBterday.be cannot be tried by a null
tar.v tribunal.

considerable attention at the White House, J03

Grant, and the General has returned tbe com
pliment. The conversation naturally turned on
Southern affairs and reconstruction. Mr.
Stephens reiterates his positive convictions
that the people of Georgia are sincere In their
expressions of submission and future loyaltyi
and naturally desires the speedy admission of
her representative.

sum required at a little less than $200,000,000.
Financial Troubles In tne Old Ketrloas.

The New York Tribune this morning say:-
"Money on call is more active at 6 per cent.,
and the rate is steadily hardening. The passage
of the Loan bill will probably bo followed by
movements on the part of the heavy capitalist
which will change the character ot the money
market by bnnnlrg the Government into the
Held as a borrower. The reduction ot the army,
foon to be made, will require a large amount,
which must come trom sources outside the Cus
tom House or the Internal Revenue Depart
ment Ihe progress already made towards
specie payments has disaTanged values nnd
bnstnes to such an extent, nat the receipts
from interna revenue wilt icel ita effects, and
the Secretary's calculation that he mast borrow
money to carry him through the fiscal year be
realized. Ihat he will want tll2,f!OJ,000 is not
probable; but rhat he will be a borrower to an
extent sufficient to. absorb a lanje amount of
money now loaned on call at 66 per cont., la
as certain ns any future eveut can be."
The Bank Note Reporter ha the following
rcaarding the bt.nks in (the Pennsylvania oil
Oil City Bank, at Oil City. This bank is a State
institution, with a circulation ot some $230,000, not
srourca by any bonds. We bellove the circulating
notes of this bank have only a nominal valao.
Bank ot Crawford County, at Meudvtlle. This U
a State bank, with about VS50 000 circulation, not
secured. It had fl ed the preliminary paoers to re
orvamzeasa National Bank had deposited some
bonds in Washington but bas never loouived any
National Currency. Our impression is that the
"Bank of Crawford County" ia not as bad a lallure
as the "Oil City Bank."
Venanro Bank, at Franklin. This Is a froe Slate
bank converted Into a National. The old circulation
is about 8130.000, secured by 7 80 lrcaury Motes de
posited at Harruburg, aud 8'V)U0O National cur
rency seemed by deposits in Washington. We be
lieve that the old circu ation will be taken up at it
lace, alter some delay, probably at Pittsburg. For
the piesont we quote it at 10 discount. The 960,000
National currency will sutler no duoredit.
Petroleum Bank, at Tit us v! lie. This is a free State
bank, circulation some $200,030, secured by 7 80
Trcasuiy Aotes deposited at Harrisbnra:. Its notes,
we believe, will be taken up at their face, st Pitta
bursr, after some delay. W quote them st 10 dis
count. This bank bad fiied Its papers to reorganise
as a National bank.
t uivcr, Penn fc Co. owned but a small portion of
the stottk of tho "First National Bank" at Titusvillo,
but its New York account was with that house. In
tbe uncertainty ot tbe moment It suspended. It has
sinoe resumed business on a solid Darns. The losses
are not sumoient to impair its solvency. Its mana
gers are ot s sound and solid clas of local eltizens.
Its dratts on Culver, Penn A Co. are cashed by tbe
Fitsi National Bank ol tbis oity.
These are all tbe banks that are directly hurt bv the
luilure of Culver. Penn A Co. Otlior banks have
been 1 laced in the broken lists published m the

County writes ns that hi bank bad no business with
