Lancaster, Oct. 17. It is estimated that over twenty thousand strangers are in town this morning. The trains arriving from east and west are filled. The cry Is still they come. Governor Geary and other dignitaries arrived this morning. They will attend tbe grand ban quet! given by the Empire Hook and Ladder Company to their guests to-night. Over thirty companies are already in the Hue and more are expected. The banquet given to the United States aud Hibeinia, of Philadelphia, by the Union of Lan caster, last night, was a fine affair. Speeches were made by B. F. BaT, of the Union, Charles Buck waiter, of the United States, Mayor Sander eon, and others. The visiters are enjojing themselves, and the btreets are crowded. During the night uunfberauf serenades were given to the citizens by the different visiting companies, and everything passed off plea santly. Some of the Philadelphia companies and nu merous citizen visitors paid their respects to ex Presldent Buchanan this morning. He threw open his house and welcomed his guests in a neat speech, which was replied to by Messrs. Buckwalter and Palmor. After partaking of re freshments, the visitors returned to this city, well pleased with their visit. A splendid horn was presented to the Friend ship, of Lancaster, by the United States, of Philadelphia, this morning. MASSACHUSETTS. Arrest of Two of the Alleged Robbers of the Bank of Norway, Malue A Long Chiie-Eff.ct of Thieves Falling Out. . Boston, Oct. 16. Two of the robbers who were engHged in tbe robbery of the Norway (Maine) bank have been arretted in this city, and taken to Maine lor examination. They were arrested by Detective Hunt, of Boston, thiough inlormatiou furnished him by William Frasier, barkeeper of the United States Hotel. Mr. Fra lier had noticed the two parties arrested, together with a couple of oibers, lounging about the hotel under biispicious circurn stances, aud one day he dii-eovered them en gaged in a spirited ditcunrten, during which one accusd another ot attempting to deiraud him out ot $50,000, after tie had done all the work and run all the risk. Kuives aud pistols were drawn by the parties, and one of them sug gested if there was a dilifcul y between them all would be arrested, aud tuo whole would be found out. Mr. Frazler reported tbe facts to De tective Hunt, but when he tatne to look for them they were non est. Two days airo, h5w ever, Mr. Frazier found them in an eating house near tbe Worcester depot, but when he notified Hunt they were agHin missing; but it was subt-equently ascertained that tbey had left a kit ot burglar's too I J in tbe eating saloon, and Officer Hunt, watchmg tbeir approach, suc ceeded in effecting the arrest of two when they called for their Implements next day. Both re lused to give their names, but oue of them is believed to be from New York, and the other has evidently lately arrived from England. There are good reasons lor believing that they are ft part of tbe gang engaged in the late bold robbery of the Blue IXUi Dank la Dorchester. VIRGINIA. Speech of Henry A. Win at the Opening of the Horticultural Society In Illch momd He advisee Yonng Men. to Be come Farmere and Po Their Own Labor. Washington, October 10. The Horticul tural and Penological Society of Vir ginia was opened to-night in Richmond. General Wise delivered the address. He com menced by saying that "never in the history of nations has revolution been more sudden, shocking, aud severing limits effects than the late coufllct of State aud Federal sovereignties in the United States, in respect to all our relations, political, social, and economical. "The Constitution of federation has been broken and set at naught, its compacts have been con solidated in the irresponsible and unchecked power of some, only through most of Its units, and tbe other State constituencies or units in the minority have been metamorphosed into fractions or fragments of conquered provinces, In which the supremacy of civil law, civil rights, and civil jurisdiction has been dethroned 0y military domination. The result is, that the foundations of the whole have been so shaken and shattered that no repairs only of the fabric can make it firm and stable again; but it must be entirely rebuilt anew, from corner-stone to dome. The Union as It was docs not exist, and States as they were have been demolished." After describing the mode in which the Union was formed, he said: "This common Government was so plural in fact that it had no name in the singular num ber. Its very name is plural ot States the United States not plural of people In the sense of population. There Is a Maine man, a New Yorker, a Virginian, a Kentuckian, a North or South Carolinian, but even the great expounder himself was never so immodest as to call him self a United States man. lie was a Massachu setts man, a son oi the elder sister of Virginia, which hailed her cheerily in the night of the revolution or rebellion against George theTblrd, by the grace of Great King ol Biitain, when Vir ginia and Massachusetts were States, in the exer cise of tbe lights of tbe war, tbe highest act of sovereignty, before the United States even were. He then spoke of the manner in which Sar geantS. Prentiss made the two words "fellow citizens" embiaoe and express the full grandeur and greatness of our country, and inspire the holy sentiment to preserve, guard, perpetuate, and defend it, and said: "Alas ! we are no longer fellow-citizens, no longer citizens. Oar own, our native land, Its civil liberty has departed; its Governments, State and Federal, have been dissolved and changed. Ihereareno longer any guarantees of the rights of the one or checks upon the powers of the other, and its soil has been trampled in mire and filth by the in vasion of a fratricidal civil war. Where now is separate State identity? Where now internal sovereignty r Where now equal dig nity ? Where now self-protecting power or the tegis of constitutional law? Where now sepa rate State independence? The wrecks of powers and of rights point to Congress. Congress has stationed commundants over districts numbered by proclamation. They have ordered the civil to be subordinate and obedient to the military authority. The conventional as well as the municipal powers and capacities ot State peo ples have been ignored, and enacted and pro claimed ont of existence. The Executive ennrts overrnln and oveiride the courts of the judiciary. Tbe benches of justice are suspended by epauletted commissions, who need nor sheriffs nor sergeants, nor marshals, nor posse commitatvswho drill to order, who substitute ciiersjund tipstaves with drun and fife, who serve no civil process, but note the minute of the proofs verbal, add are armed with gloves of steel to do martial executiou. Tbe free white Eeople who were masteis but yesterday, are umbled to become the political slaves of the hlnrk frof dmon oi todav. The American slaves ot yesteiday, the freedmen, not Ireemcn, of to", day, are exalted to become the political black masters of the white freemen of yesterday. What a change In a single day I It was, rather, a night of the oiactness or uhtkdcss oi surren der. IA surrender not of the black ntan's chains bo much as of the white man's natural rights of race and civil rights of citizenship. It was a change, not lroni slavery to liberty of the one race, Dut a change of black slaves into black masters, a change of white masters into white slaves. Not a change of the Ethiopian's color and nature into white, nor a change of the Caucasian color and nature into black; not a change of the races, but a change reversing the relative conditions of the two races and mergiug the rights and relations of both in an un limited, unchecked, undefined despotism. Tbere is no moie fellowship in citizenship. The vase ot Uuion is broken, not crocked merely. It is broken to pieces through and throughout from tip to base. If held together, it is no longer in amity and peace, aud by compact or agree ment, or by ratification. It is now pinned by bayonets, bound by brute force, cemented, not by fraternal affection, uot by common love of countiy, not by comradeship ol commou fate or fortune, or cause or sacrifice, or glory or suffer ing, oi triumph, but by an amalgam ol the co agulated blood of enemies in war, not yet, in feace, friends. This revolution has wrought horough and fundamental changes in our social system and our economy in every branch of business, particularly that of the culture of the land. The lands are all that are left us. They are the only fountains ot our life, the only sources of our supplies. The only earnest of our renovation is the earth we live on, and the lands are lett desolate and waste. This laud, of every land tbe pride, is bereft of its verdure, its blossom, aLd its bloom, its fruits and its flowers, of eveij thing except its ancient renown, its late glory in arms, and its present honor and pride. The former laborers have been enticed from the fields, and are now the pupils of poli tics, the dupes of fanaticism, 'honev-iuetiled' by tbe fatal catessescf co-operath.nists, and are but too certain to be tbe demoralized victims of the dtmaeopucs, and wblsky of elections, and to be decimated by tbe dii-eases ot the now licensed vices of their race liizinefs and lust. Thtse changes demand an absolute cbango in agriculture, a change from the plautatlon to the farming system. This requires a new mode of culture, new implements, new crops, more various, on a smaller scale, more contracted aud concentrated, requiring more skill, more care, and yielding the most pro tit on the smallest space. Virginians, if they would pot be driven out from their own inheritance, should them selves do this work ol farming for themselves. Tbey must uot call on Hercules, nor freedmen, nor German, nor Swede, nor immigrants from any clime."' After speaking of tbe favorable geographical position of the State, her soil, climate, mineral and other resources, be advned the landholders of the State to give every encouragement to our own whit3 labor, and the young men ot the State to apply themselves to the study of agri culture as a science, if tbey would tave the real estate of their fathers, aud keep sacred the altars of their own birthplaces and homes. It is far more honorable to do this, be said, than to skulk into profession by tbe bock door, and become pettifogging lawyers aud quack doctors, who practise their arts t rob clients I. ill v.Allnnlu sa r cAnlr nlonoa In r urlr li V I iia Vl BlJl latU UtO fM. iU CV- IV lULt.

He appealed to the nianlv. proud, brave, and strong men ot tbe State who bad neither means nor settled pursuit to adopt agriculture as a business, aud concluded hisaddrehs by an appeal to the young men of the State ti labor earnestly and faith fully, never to despair, and they to-night have the assurance that better aad happier days for them were 1b the near future.

A Colored Man Stabbed to Death by Another Colored Man Named Brown The Coroner's Jury Return a Verdict of Wilful Murder Against Brown The Perpetrator at Large. The small village of Tyburn, Pa., between three and four miles from Trenton, has been aioused tioin its wonted stillness bv a most cold-blooded and determined murder. Benja min tiogan, a colored larmer, residing in the above-named village, was stabbed to death on Tuesday night, and Abraham Brown, also .coloied.has been pronounced by the Coroner's jury as being the perpetrator of the bloody deed. An inquest was neia yesterday, ana tne only witness that disclosed the character of the fatal fray, John Hill, testified to the following effect: About seven o'clock on Tuesday evening Hogan came from Trenton, and asked witness had he seen Brown with his wagon; witness answered "no:" the deceased then told Hill that on that day ho was driving in his team to the market with corn, and, meeting Brown on the road, accommodated him with a ride; the deceased, having other business to transact In the city, lcit Brown in charge of the team till his return; during the absence of the deceased Brown sold the corn and disappeared with the money and wagon; the owner of the corn searched in vain lor Brown, and, thinking ho might have gone home, followed him in that direction; when the deceased found Brown had not arrived, he asked Hill to accompany him back again to Trenton to look after him: they had not gone far when they met Brown driving the team towards home: the deceased censured Brown for treating him so dishonestly, aud demanded the price of his com; Brown, instead of giving the money, re torted in smart words, arid struck the deceased with a whip; Hill quelled the dispute, and thinking peace had been restored, left the dis putants; but he had not proceeded twenty paces when Hogan roared out: "He stabbed me! he stabbed me!" Hill hastened back, found the decerned stretched on the ground in a sense less condition, and saw Brown decamping, but not striking the fatal blow; Hogan died almost immediately. A post mortem examination was held, and the doctors found tbat a sbarp instrument (most probably a knife) had entered between tbe first and second ribs, penetrating the heart about one inch. An inquest was held yesterday and a verdict of wiltul murder In the first decree was returned against Abraham Brown. The do ceased had a very comfortable home, and leaves a wife and helpless family to mourn hla loss. The assassin is still at large, and it is said a man answering to his description was observed get ting on the cars at Mobar station, on the Belvi dere Railroad, about 9 o'clock yesterdav morn ing. Great excitement prevails 4n the hitherto peaceful hamlet of Tvburn, and tbe inhabitant are loud in their desires for the capture of the dastardly murderer. Jv. Y. Eerald.

According to a Paris exchange report, human hair is chielly supplied to the world of tashloa by France. The departments of Puy de Dombes, CaDta), Correze, Lozere, La Vendee, Leg Doux Sevres, La Vienne, L'Allier, La Manche, Lcs Cotes du Nord, and L'lle et Vilaine, are the best market for this commodity. Italy, Germany, and Belerium likewise compete with France, but cannot beilt her out of tbe field as to this sup ply of the raw material. Religious houses aud nunneries 6upply large quantities. The price of uudressed hair varies from 50 francs the kilo to tiO fraucs. In 1865 tho price rose from 65 francs to lot) francs the kilo. In rrauce 68,000 kilogrammes ot human hair are sold annually, 25,000 kilos of which are worked up into pastiches. Thirteen thousand kilos are exported to foreign countries. The 6ale of the raw material and its value when worked iuto the plaits and putl's and chignons which adorn the heads of the belles, represent above 80,000.000 francs - that Is, 3,200,000 or $16,000,000 ' ' ur The rail Mall Gazelle says a correspondent re cently answered an advertisement in the Times protkriug degrees tor sale, and received the fol lowing reply: "Bush Lane, Cannon street.

At the great Republican mass meeting held last night at the Cooper Institute, New York city, Mr. Greeley read the following letters: LETTER FROM 8BNATOR SHERMAN. Mansfield, Ohio, Oct. 14, 1867. My Pear Sir: I regret that I am not able to attend your meeting at the Cooper Institute on the 16th instant. 1 would like in person to as-ure you that the Republicans of Ohio are not in the least discouraged by the elections on last Tues day. General Uaves and the whole State ticket are elected by 3000 majority, which we will make 60,000 next fall with case. We lost tho State in 1862 by 6000 majority, on the Emanci pation Proclamation of Abraham Lincoln. The r,e.t year we beat Vallandieham by 101,000 on the same issue. Impartial suffrage and Implicit observance of the public faith will next year, as this year, be engraved on our banners, and will as surely triumph as that God rule. Indepen dence wonld have been defeated in 1775. It wa3 proclaimed throughout the land in 1776. Our soldiers were not disheartened with partial defeats, but tbe Copperheads were. Tbey raised the white flag in 1864. In 1866 the national banner floated In triumph over every part of our country. 8o will It be next year. In themean time we will learn wis dom lrom our defeats. We must insi't upon greater economy in public expenditure. Wc must enforce our revenue laws. We must cease to quarrel among ourselves, Our adver saries may be made useful In closing our ranks. I trust that New York, as the Empire State, may take the lead in this movement, and by maintaining Republican ascendancy, con vincc Democrats and Rebels that the party an1 tbe principles that prevailed during the war will govern tbe country, now tbat peace an I Union have been won. With the best wishes for jour success, I am truly yours, John Sherman. A. B. Sage, Esq., Secretary, etc. letter from governor brownlow. State of Tbnnksbee, Executive Department,. Nashville, Oct. 11, 1867. Messrs. John Fitch, A. B. Sage, P. A. Conkllng, Geo. II. Van Cleft and others of Union Republican Central Com mittee, New York. Gentlemeu: I am in re ceipt of your favor of the 8th lost., Inviting me to address the Union Republicans of the city f New Yoik at the Cooper Institute on the eve ning of Wednesday, Oct. 16, Inst. In reply I beg to say that my official duties at the Capitol, in connection with tbe session of the Legisla ture which has just convened, will prevent my being present with you on that occasion. I trust that the noble-hearted Republicans of New York are not going to fold tbelr arms and let the world, the flesh, and the devil (all Included In the term Democracy) sweep the field as they seem to have done in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Send a delegation of lukewarm radicals down here, and we will show them what live, earnest work is, such as has given ua 62,000 majority in our recent canvass. Our Union Leagues furnished the organiza tion through which we worked, aud I need not assure you that it proved a most efficient one. Say to our brethren of New York, who, throueh the press, found so much fault with our style of conducting aflairs during the last contest, that we expect them to show by their triumph in November tbat the manner in which they carry on political campaigns Is much more effective than ours, and that nothing short of a splendid victory can possibly justify them in our estima tion for having given us so much excellent ad vice during our recent struggle.

Sage, Esq., Secretary Union Republican Committee of the City of Aew York.-Sir: Your circular ot tbe 8th Inst, is received. 1 regret my inability to be with you on the 16th inst. as you request. But I hope and trust that the Republicans ot the great Empire Mate will not abite one jot of courage or hope in consequence of the tempo rary check their brethren have had in Ohio. For more than fourteen years Ohio has had a succession of Republican Governors, and sbe never will have any other. Her recent narrow escape will only have the effect to secure her against future accidents. The Republicans ot Ohio were never more radical, more confident of their itrength, nor more resolutely determined to carry out their principles to a final triumph, than now; and, if our election could be held over again to-morrow, warned of our danger, we should carry the State by more than 60,000. We certainly shall do this next fall if we stand firmly by the great and godlike principle of equal and exact justice to all men. But even defeat on such a principle Is better than victory on any other, and fina1. defeat on this principle is as impossible as that a God of justice .shah eease to rule the world. Yours, with respect, B. P. Wade. FINANCE AND COMMERCE. Orrioa or thb Kvunihs Tklbbaph, Thursday. Oct. 17, 1867.

The week opens with a brut demand for money. In the discount line there are but- few fortunate Individuals, comparatively,, whose wants are supplied at less than 7 per cent., tho exceptions below this figure being in favor of such parties as keep good average balances, and are consi derably outnumbered by those applicants who prefer' to pay 7J, and In some instances 8 per cent., rather than go outside of the banks and submit to still higher rates. On call loans (Governments or other flrst-elass collateral) the transactions are mainly at 6i0c7 per cent., wttn occasional but rather rare exceptions at 0 per ceat." At Chicago, Bays the Tribune "The Money market presents no new featircf though tbe demand from grain operators is on the increase, which tends to make the market closer, In view of tho fact that the banks are making preparations to meet the wants of the packers, some of whom have already com menccd operations. The offerings oi sight bills are light, but thore Is an Increased demand for discounts on time bills against shipments. Io some instances these are credited up at the usual rate, but as a general rule there is no dis position on tbe part of the bankers to accept such paper. The mercantile demand is mode rate, and depositors in good standing are accom modated to the extent of their accounts at the usual rate. In the open market money com mands 1J2J per cent, per month. New York funds were in active demand, scarce, and higher, with sales between banks at par. The firmness Is only looked upon as being a temporary one. induced by the falling off in the shipments and the increased demand on mercantile account.
