KVMN R1 E(&1RAF H VOL. VIII-No. 149. PHILADELPHIA, MONDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1867. TR1TLE SIIEETTIIREE5 CENTS FIRST EDITION EUROPE ADVICES BY STEAMER. The Fenian Funeral In Dublin Affairs In England and on the Continent, Etc. Cj the arrival of the steamship Ilcrmnun, from Bremen, at New Tork, we have received advices by mall to December 10. Tli 1emla.ia DtmoBitraUon In Dublin. The 'great funeral procession ia memory of Allen, Lurk In, and Gould, took pluce ia Dublin on Biro day, the 8th of December. TheChalrtnan of the Denionntrative Committee was John Martin, who iu 1848 was sentenced to ten years peml servitude lor "trea;on lelony." At the heed of the procession there were 200 men wt Iking eiiht abreast, then a baod of music, and tK.hind ihat several thousands of boys and girls, ' then came three hearses, and then about 3000 Women, and behind them a larje army of men, variously estimated at Iroin 8000 to 20,000. Beveral bands were interspersed in tae pro cession, and nearly every participant wore crapo and green favors, the day was very wet, but several thousands of spectators lined the streets alongy which the procefsion passed, a large nuuioer of whom wor3 sympathizing colors. The bands played 'The Dead March," "Adiste Fideles," "fciivournten Dheeluh," and other tun?s. When pa-siug the spot where Emmet was hnntred, in Thomas street, the processionists lifted their hats and cheered. When the proces irn si rived at Glasnevin Cemetery, John Martin addressed the immense audience who "closed In" around him. He denounced toe "malignant policy" of England, and said that the men whose memory they were met to honor were not murderers, but pipus and virtuous men, who leared God and loved their country. For that love they were doomed to death at the hands of the British hangman. The death of those men was legal murder the act of Enulifh policy, which, through jealousy and hatred of their nationality, had by fraud and loice destroyed their independence. They had since erodurcd Hxty-fceven yearn of insult and xobbery, of impoverishment, extermination, mud suu'erlnrr, beyond what any other people Jiad ever endured from a foreign master. A vast nuthber of Irishmen whom oppression of Eug nh rule had forbade to live In their own coun try had In America lenrned to become soldiers, amd resolved to make waron England. She was 3m apanic in consequence, and hoped to strike terror into Iribbmen by lepal murder. Mr. Martin made a long and eloquent speech, which was listened to in perfect Bilence and with great Mention. This speech was made at the (rave of Terence Bellew McManue, the leader of 1848, who was takenover from the United States and buried . Ihere. Each of the bands of music baited and splayed at thegrave during the march round the cemetery. Mr, Martin's speech, when ho referred to the "innocent lives which had been taken," was areoeived with shouts of "We'll strike terror Into them." Cheers were given lor the Irish repub lic, and groans for the present rulers of Ireland. Apart from ' this demonstration the utmost girder was observed, and no excuse was eiven " to the police to make any charges that the peace of the city had been disturbed. ' 'A procession took place at Limerick on the same day, and the proceedings were likewise peaceable. Ten thousand people were in the procession, many beins from the adjoining counties. Father Quaid delivered the address, and at his request all knelt and said a prayer for the souls of the men executed at Manchester. The people then rose and cheered for Fathor Quaid and the lrith republic. The Dublin iDec. 7) correspondence of the London limes gives the following particulars of the programme as it was arranged: The topic of absorbing interest at present is the funeral procession which is announced for to-morrow. There can be little doubt that if such a demonstration be permitted to take place in this metropolis it wi.l imperil the tranquillity of the country. A feeling of deep concern per vades all loyal classes, irrespective of creed, at the prospect of Fenianism receiving fresh lite froni such proceedings. The processions which are In contemplation for there are others spoken of will not be re garded by the people as monster meetings in motion, intended to give expression to popular feeling in a constitutional manner, but at dis plays of masked treas n, which only awaits the opportunity to afas.il the Constitution. They Kill be considered ao open and defiant violations .of the spirit. If not tht letter, of the law, which Are tolerated, not from any generous forbear ance of scrupulous respect for technical forms, but simply trom timidity.on the part of the Authorities. This is, no doubt, a most "unrea sonable construction ;.but the. mass of the popu . lace will not be disposed, even if perfectly .competent, to draw nice distinctions in lavor of the British Government. While a hostile press is impregnating the minds of the lower classes wKh the virus of dis affection, such assemblages id ay become espe cially dangerous in themselves, apart alto gether trom any fear cf collUlou .between tac tions such at they have already produced. The people become familiarized with the display of organized power which they know to be capable At.wiy convenient moment ot being directed to revolutionary obects, if not now. actually aimed at tbem. Under the shelter of an organization that is admitted to be legal if it be admitted I'enlanism may recruit aud consolidate any Iresh elreiigib it may acquire; and the knowledge that popular agitation is charged with the ex plosive element, will render it doubly formidable end perplexing. A iormidable obstacle win be raited 9t the Way ot those who honesUy desire to alopt remedial measures for the condition of the country. The policy of yielding to intimidation, as it would seem to be, may be carried out with out securing peace and order, and the habit of impunity will make the disad'ected more auda cious and exacting. Such are some of the con sequences which loyal aid liberal people appre hend. A week ago there was no idea of such a manifestation in Dublin as we are threatened with to-morrow. Mow we have it proclaimed in the most ostentatious manner, and if the result correspond with the expectations of Its pro moters, it will .be on a greater scale than any which we have yet seen. The order of ceremonial observed in Cork will be substantially adhered to, with the slisrht dif ference that each 'martyr" will be honored by a separate Learsc. The bands will play the Dead March in Saul," aud there will be a speech at the grave yard by Mr. John Mar'ln. lue procession will aweep through most ot the leading street, commencing atUeresford place, where the muster will Ve at 12 o'clock. It will march, taking the following route: Abbey street, Capel street, the North Quays, and across the Kinu'a btidge, which is the extreme limit, up Stephen's lane on its return, through Jamet street, Thomas street, Wiue Tavern street, part of the Bouth Quays, Parliament street, Dame street. Westmoreland street, eiackvllle street and oa to Glasnevin, where, to make the mock er, more complete, a strove baa been purchased over which it it Intended hereafter to erect a crass. '. No one wiJI be permitted to ad Iresa the multi tade except JJr. Martin. This gentleman, who appears to be toe prime mover in the atialr, ex hibits worthily the grateful spirit which he fuels towards the jWMfc Crown, which, ertendyd iu clemency to hlnu He was one of those convicted for treason felony In connection with the move ment ol 1848, and sentenced to ten jcirs' pjnal servitude. After undergoing a portion of hs punishment he received a paidon, and now nbuFt s the liberty wh'Ch was generously restored toh!mtoet a pernicious example to the dis affected classes. Those who intend to take part in the procession n t-e busily engaged In siaklog preparations. Green ribbon and crape are in tie maud, not only in parts of the city, but In Kinirstown and other suburban districts. In the 'liberties of Dublin hawkers have been plying b brisk and profitable business vending rosettes ready tied at exorbitant prices. Various rumors have been (lying about as to the probhbility of a counter-demonstration by the Orangemen, but it is to he hoped that no unseemly imitation of the cond ict of the Fenian sympathizers will be attempted. Some hopes were entertained by the respectable and loyal citizens, Including some of the most earnest Roman Catholics, who dicountenance the con spiracy and its abettors, that even at the eleventh hour the Government would prohibit the demonstration, but no steps have as vet been taken with that view. A special meeting of the Privy Council was held this afternoon, but It is understood they separated without re solving to suppress It. There is little fear that any actual breach of the peace will be com mitted, an all the iouinals which approve it, and the Freeman, which doubts the propriety of having it, concur in exhorting the sympa thizers to avoid doing anvthlng which would bring them within the meshes of the law. Hopes of Dr. Livingstone's Safety. At a meeting of the Royal Geographical So ciety In London, December 9, a letter was read from Dr. Kirk, of Zanzibar, fourteen davs later in date than the last that have been published. The letter is as follows: LETTEB FROM DR. KIRK TO UK. WEBB. Zanzibar, Oct. 9. The interesting discovery that a white man had been seen seven m jnths ago to the s outh of Lake Tanganyika, induced Mr. Churchill, the Consul, and myself to go to Paeamoyo, a place on the coa9t, the poiut of arrival and departure of the Cjijl ca-avans. The mult of our visit has been to find two other men, who also saw this wanderer iu the country of Marungu, and to place his existence apparently beyond a doubt. We Lave also learned something about hit per sonal appearance, his escort, and the route he was taking, and have been told that letters were piven to one of the head men of another caravan then at Marungu. This man, we have siuce found, is no mythical personage, but a well-known man, so that on his arrival from the interior, expected In the ourse of a month, we may have not only our curiosity satis fied, but I sincerely hope our best wishes for our dear friend LivinRstone realized. I hope we f hall find be has been successful, and is pushing his way.to the Albert Nvanza, thence to emerge, via the Nile, on the Mediterranean. He will have been the first man who has not only crossed the -continent, but has passed through Its whole length from the Cape of Good Hope to the mouth of the Nile. But the essential part of his work will have been done before he reaches the Nile, and he may safclv return towards Zanzibar, if so minded, with laurels sufficient to constitute him the greatest of all explorers, and the African traveller par ex cellence. You see I am very sanguine that our friend Is still alive. The manner in which we obtained the testimony was very satisfactory. In the first place, I picked up the news among some of the native traders; I then traced it to the caravan people, and drew out their story while they were unsuspicious of its interest; so thnt neither Hur dee tradernor Suahell men had an object to tell lies.or an i1eato which way to do so if they wished to please merely. Besides, our conversations were carried on without an Interpreter, and although making no pretense to a full knowledge ot the language,.! know quite sufficient to be able to express myself and dispense with that fertile source of confusion, an interpreter. I need not repeat all we heard; most ot what is important will be published before this reaches England. With the prospect of letters from Livingstone 60 near, we miy well retrain from all speculatian on the subject of his geographical discoveries. John Kirk. American Affairs. The London Times of December 10 ha3 the following on American affairs: The refusal of the House of Repreentatives to proK cute the impeachment of President John eon terminates one of the straneest episodes in the history of the American Union. There never was a more startling instance of the power of public opinion on a legislative body. The House of Representatives is divided between Republi cans and Democrats nearly in the ratio of three to one. Of the seven Republican mem bers of the Impeachment Committee, five supported the resolution recommending the House to impeach the President at the bar ot the Senate. Under ordinary circum stances, the impeachment must have followed as a matter of course. A few months ago it would have been inevitable. It had been pro posed to the House by the Judiciary Committee, it was supported by a large maiority of the Re publican members of the Committee, and the House itself was mainly composed of members of the Republican party. But the elections ol the autumn had shown that the majority of the voteis of the North recoiled from the extreme measures of the Republican leaders, and, though the elections had no direct effect on the Honso itself, (they apparently exercisad an im mense moral influence on its members. By a vote of 108 to 67 the proposal was rejected, aud the danger of a complete lock of legislation, unbalanced by any practical advantage, was lemoved. . - , The rejection of the proposal to Impeach the President for tigh crimes and misdemeanort will leave Congress free to attend to the more pressing wants of the Union; but the mischief of this mistaken proposal will, probahlv, not so easily disappear. It seems not unlikely that the leaders of the Republican party will have reason to repent their unbridled animosity against the President, but it this were all, they would receive, as tbey deserve, little com miseration. It is to be feared that the nation at large will be prejudiced by this abortive manifestation. The President has given abundant proofs of his own Intractable disposition, and the abstract of his last Message tbows that up to the meeting of Con gress he had not learned the necessity of abating any ol his pretensions. The conclutive vote against the prosecution of his impeachment may not improbably be taken by such a man as an approval -of his policy. It must in any case confirm him in the course he has adopted. The consequences which may be traced in the legis lation of the session which has just begun cannot be doubtlul. The strength of the Republican party Is broken, yet it commands a majority ia the House and In the Senate. The tenacity of the President is confirmed, vet he is liable to be overruled by the votes or adverse majorities. The hopes of a satisfactory reconstruction are diminished. As it cannot be supposed tbat the Republicans will acquiesce in Mr. John son's schemes, and it is beyond hope that Mr. Johnson will modify his own views, there must lie a trial of strength on every question as it arises, and the doubtful balance will some times incline to one and sometimes to the other side. Neither can get rid of the other, and the utmost that can be anticipated Is a little amendment of the more pressing difficul ties of the present situation, followed by a postponement of the rest of the work to a bet ter teasoa. Shutout from the prospect of use ful legislation in Congress, the energy of the nation must be almost entirely devoted to what would, under any circumstances, be the great task ot the coming year the selection of the new Pres'.deut ani the determination of the "platform" upon which bis Cabinet shall be constructed. . "rn7 C08t ix etntl ft pound or 120 ft ton In Cheyenne, THE WEST INDIES. Captain-General I.ersaodl'a Reception, at Havana-Financial Deficit In tbe Jamaica Budget. 11 ! Ihe Cuba Cable. Havana, Dec. 21. The "panish steam-friirate Francisco de Asi9 arrived here to-day from Porto Rico, with General Francisco de Sales Lcrsundi, our new Cantain-Gencral. Immense crowds thronged the wtinrvcs and terraces that line the bay to welcome the General as the Irieare entered the harbor of Havana. A large steamer and all the ferry-boats had been en gaged to convey those who wished to salute the General before reaching the Morro Castle, and accompany the Francisco de Asia as she entered the bay. these steamers went out some distance to sea; they were crowded, and were gaily decked with flags and streamers. Bands of mueic accompanied all these boats and enlivened the scene by their choice muaio. When the lrigate arrived opposite the city she came to anchor, and a delegation from the corporate bodies went aboard to welcome bis Excellency, who expressed his pleasure and gratification at the cordial and magnificent welcome extended to him on this second occasion of his urrival as Captain-General among them. After the usual courtesies his Excellency came ashore, aud the line of procession wai formed to the palace. The Captain-General and suite filled five carriages and were escorted by the Eiscayans resident iu Havana, who formed In double line. This privilege was accorded them on account ot General Lursundl being a native of the Biscayan provinces of Spain. The procession passed under several triumphal arches. Ihe landing was effected on a carpeted pathway, aud amid the shouts and vivas ot the assembled population, the forts and ships in the harbor meanwhile tiring the salute customary on such occasions. All the troops of the garrison were In line, and his Excellency was In full uniform. He was presented with a splendid sword by the municipality. Havana, Dec. 21. We have advicet from Kingston, Jamaica, to the 9th instant. The finances of the island were in an awful atate; a deficiency of fifty thousand pounds ster ling is to be made up by an additional duty of ten per cent, on imports. A negro insulted the American Consul, Grezg, by striking him in a billiard saloon; but Mr. Gregg snmmarlly chastised his black aggressor. BOILER EXPLOSION IN CHICAGO. Explosion of tha Dollar of a Locomotive in the Illinois Ventral Depot Great Destruction of Property. From Chicago Republican, Dec. 2J. The Great Union Central Depot was early yes terday morning the scene ot a terrific explosion, that of the boiler ot a locomotive, whtch, strangely enough, resulted in but slight injury to a few persons, and the demolition of a por tion of the roof and window-panes iu the depot and adjacent buildings. The platform was not wholly cleared of the throng at a few minutes before eight o'clock, when the exploslou occurred, and it is fortunate no lives were lost. Suddenly, and with a deaf eniag crash, the boiler of the locomotive ex ploded, and promenaderc on the platform were precipitated violently to the planks. There were no premonitory symptoms on the part ot the engine previous to the concussion, and the disaster occurred before the slightest opportu nity was atlorded for escape. The scene presented almost beggars deserio tion. The ptatlorm was covered with fragments of the locomotive and roof of the building, and infinitesimal particles of plasa were scattered hither acd thither. A ponton of the engine had been thrown through the roof, making an im mense fissure, and the refreshment room bad beon completely gutted. The dome of the engine, with adjacent fixtures, said to have weighed 1200 pounds, was thrown a height of nearly two hundred feet, and landed in a freight car east of the depot. One of the iron braces which connected the boiler with the frame work of the engine was also carried through the roof, and struck on the top of a "Blue Line" car, shattering it considerably. The windows in the suriounatng buildu ps were broken. As to the immediate cause of the explosion nothing is known. The engineer confesses his inability to conjecture. He btates that he was running 103 pounds steam pressure, and that the four guages of the boiler, when tested, showed tbat there was not. an insufficiency ot water. The upper part of the engine J was stripped, and the flues were contracted Into the most fantastic shapes. The end and front of the boiler, however, are Intact. Expriienced engineers who have examined the wreck assert that this explosion is a most remarkable one, there being no cause to which It can bo assigned, except, perhaps, some weak spot in the boiler. The locomotive was valued at $12,000, and was damaged about $5000. It hud been In the repair shop in November, and was pionounced per fectly sound. The total damage to the depot, cars, and locomotive is estimated at about 126,000. THE WAR IN ABYSSINIA. Diary of One of the King's Captives Cruelty of Mis Majesty In "The"Black House" at Debra Tabor. The East India mail, by way of England, fur nishes a copy of the diary of Dr. Blanc, one of the Abyssinian captives, just published in Bom bay. This paper, dated Ma,?daU, August 31, l&fff, contains a complete account of the vary ing ifortunes attending Mr. Rassam's mission from the 20th of July, 18G4, the date of their de parture from Aden, up to the end of ArjpusL The compilation of the report was no easy mat ter. iDr. Blauc says on this point: "I was obliged on two occaaions to burn my report; first, on being made prisoner, in April. 1863, when we thought it advisable to destrov note, letter, or paper In our possession. At Gaflat I began to write it for the second time; but after the events that occurred there, I seized the first opportunity of making away with it. At Magdala, it is exceedingly difficult to write; riles are constantly peeping Into our lent on some pretext or other. The risk and penalty are so great, as the order Is that any one found writing is to be chained band aud foot.1' In spite of this penalty, however, Dr. Blanc's re port is said to be a marvel of neatness, exhi biting the greatest patience aud care. Of their prospects Dr. Blanc says little, not having then beard tbat an expedition was on its way to lelease them, or avenge their death. But for their being comtantly chained, their condition as prisoners would be tolerably com fortable, the more so us the Emperor can now have but very little dealings with tbem. They knew not, however, what a day might bring forth; the Emperor wai daily rioting in blood and murder, and, as tar as his much criopled power would admit, satiatiDg his one desire revenge. Their best hope seemed to be that, f hould they change owners, they might fall Into the hands of some powerful chief who would know their value, rather than into the bands of the Ignorant and infuriated peasantrv, who, likely enough, might regard them as In some way connected with the terrible mUery which the wretched cultivators have lately endured at the hands of the Negus. Dr. Blanc Bays: ' The two days we spent In the blaclt house at Debra Tabor, all huddled up together, obliged to have lighted candles day and ultrht, anxious and uncertain about our future fate, were really days of mental torture and physical discomfort, to which, in our time, few have been subjected. We hailed with oy the announcement that we were going to move; any alternative was preferable to our position; be it ruin in a worn-out tent, be It chains in oni of the ambai, anything was better than close confinement, deprived of all comiorU, even of the cheerUig ol day, SECOND EDITION LATER FK03I SOUTH AMERICA, Another Shock of Earthquako at St. Thomas.

Licutenant-General Sherman is still here, as the guest of Major Tan Vilet. The loyal friends of Major-General Hancock, whilst he was in command here, had a splendid lull-length portrait likeness of him taken, and elegantly framed, at the cowt of nearly a thou sand dollars, which they intended presenting him as a compliment, but he Tefuted to receive it, and it is still on exhibition at the artist's studio in this city. He did not relish what seemed to he political honors, though coming from hia then loyal admirers. Presi dent Johnson should send another message to Congress, advising its purchase for the Rotunda of the Capitol. Rain fell copiously during a great part of yes terday, and carried off much of the snow. It is now materially milder, and the streets crowded with holiday merchants. Business, however, is very dull, and there is much complaint of tight ness in the money market. From South America. New York, Dec. 23.

Another heavy shock of earth quake was felt at. St. Thomas on the 12th, and the excitement there still continues. Three deaths ocourred on the passage from St. Thomas.

The steamer Arizona, Captain Maury, from Aspinwall December 14, arrived at this port on (Saturday. The mails which she brings from the bouth Pacific have been for the most part auticipated by the ar rival of the steamer Nebraska on the 17th Inst. She brings the California mails of November 30, 857 passengers, $l,l'Jl,&r6 in treasure on freight, and a full cargo of merchandise, con sisiing principally of silks, teas, and other China and Japan poods. We learn that, after the events which led to the resignation af President Carrion, peace and confidence have been re-established, and every body it busy with the approaching election of a new Chief Magistrate. Dr. Espinoza is still the candidate who appears to nave the best chance of winning, although General Davolos has been nominated at Kiobamba, and Seuor A Borrero at Cuetica. What principally recom mends the first one of theto three persons is that he, so far, has kept studiously aloof from poli tics, and therefore seems to be a fit man for the reconciliation ot political parties, bince the close of Congress nothing new has trauspired in the world of politics. TORMAY TRAGEDY AT NEWARK Tha Approaching Execution of Walsh Condition or tue Prisoner. From the N. Y. Herald, 22 tt. Thomas Walsh, who lies In the county jail at Newark awaiting execution on the 2d of Janu ary, for the murder of Patrick Tormay on the 4th of July last, is only nineteen years of age. His parents immigrated to this country about twenty-eight years since, and are both living. When the doomed boy was about five years of age he was taken bv his father cn a canal boat running on the Morris canal, and in the boating business he has been reared, hit education having been sadly neglected. Since hit confinement in the county jail he has ocenpied the second cell on the right of the male apartment, and since his sentence a thin curtain hat been raised before his cell to tcreen him from the gaze of curious. visitors. The awful fate to which ho is consigned does not seem to be realized sy the UDiortunate youth; still, he devotes serious attention to matters con nected with his spiritual welfare. He is often visited by Catholic clergymen. In answer to the query of a visitor yesterday, he replied that he did not feel resigned. Ibepetltlon presented to the Governor in his behalf was mentioned, but he remained silent in regard thereto, look ing intently on the floor. He appeared remark ably well, his hair being neatly combed. Since the trial a careworn expression has crept over his face, and a deep melancholy marks all his movements. It is only seldom that he regains his former composure, aud then a smile flits across his countenance. The name of Farrellv, Walsh's associate In the crime, is not frequently mentioned, but the lat ter still persists in his statement that Farrelly pave an entirely erroneous account of the bloody transaction, throwing all the blame on Walsh, iu order to make his escape lrom the gibbet. Much sympathy is manifested for the young prisoner, but if the desires of the citizens of Newark were consulted, Farrelly would not escape the punishment which Waluh is doomed to suffer. With regard to the petition lor a reprieve, the decision of the Supreme Court, which awsfded Family a second trial, and denied one to Walsh, may be looked on as tha final disposal of the case. The Judee who pas-ed sentence, moreover was emphatic In his warning to the prisoner to place no reliance on the counsel of those who would represent that there was a chance ol escape, and after the removal ot the prisoner, gave posi tive instructions regarding the execution. The only motive that suggested the petition to the Governor from a few humane and well-meaning citizens was the youth of the prisoner, no one attempting to palliate a deed of blood so unpro voked that It lalls properly into the record of higbwavmen. To escape the full measure of retribution for such a crime, a man most past beyond the-con fl net of New Jersey. Here the law is so inexorable that a man may plainly foresee the kcntence of the blood-dyed criminal. FINANCE AND COMMERCE. Ornca or thu Evbnino Tcx.vorafh, Monday, Deo. 2S, ml. J There was rather more disposition to operate In stocks this morning, and prices were firmer. Government loans were In lair demand; 7.30s sold at 1044104, no change; 1014 was bid for 10-408, 112 i for 6s of 1881, 103 for '62 5-20s, 1051 for '64 6-20s. 1052 for '65 5-20s, and 10RJ for July '66 6.20s. City loans were unchanged; the new lserte sold at 99 aud old do at 95, interest off. Railroad shares were the most active on the list. Camden and Amboy sold at 127, no change; Pennsylvania Railroad at 50(350J, an advance of j; Reading at 48), a slight ad vance; and Lehigh Valley at 5l, an advance of i; 26 was bid for Little Schuylkill ; ii for Nor listown; 67 for Minehill; 33 lor North Penn sylvania; 234 for Catawissa preferred ; and 234 for Philadelphia and Erie. In City Passenger Railroad shares there was nothing doing. 74 was bid for Second and Third: 66 for Tenth and Eleventh; 44 for Ches nut and Walnut; 64 for West Philadelphia: 10 for Hcstonvllle; and 37 for Union.

Ilcrald this morning says: "The supply of eapital available for employ ment on the Stock Exchange was in excess of the demand during the week, and loans were made freely to first-class houses, both by the banks and private lenders, at six per cent., slthnugh seven per cent, was generally asked for tmall and moderate amounts on miscellaneous collaterals. The transactions at this rate, however, . became very exceptional to wards the close, and on Saturday lenders found it difficult to obtain six per cent., and balances were left with tome of the leading dealers in Government securities at 6 per cent. In the discount line there was a moderately easy movement, the distrust of credits which prevailed for some months prior to the passage of the bill suspending contraction by the House of Redresentatives taving given place to a more confident feeling in the immediate future of financial and commercial affairs. The banks have been latterly taking the best grade of their customers' paper without hesitation at the legal rate, and in the open market, prime names have been in requett at 78 per cent., with most of the transactions at 7. The disbursements of the Treasury iu payment of Ihe semi-annual interest due-ou the 15 tn lust. on. the June seven-thirties, and also in redemption of the December compound Interest notes, which matured on the same date, contributed to swell the volume of loanable funds, while the Western exchanges continued slightly in favor of this centre. Of $9,976,280 of comnound notet presented at the Sub-Treasury, $8.68o,000 were redeemed in three percent, certidcates. The statement of the associated city banks for the week ending yesterday reflects this con dition of growing ease in monetary affairs. Their reserve of legal-tender notes has increased $3,367,124, and their deposits $588,333, while their loans show a reduction ot $2,102,192, their soecie of $1,418,739, and their circulation of $1)0.810. Their liabilities in dn. posits and circulation amount to $211,651,681 against which they hold a reserve or $71,779,621 in specie and legal tender notes, or $18,866,600 in excess of the legal limit of twenty-dve pc cent., which would be $52,912,921. If we de duct the specie, from the reserve, nowever, we find that it is only $5,398,511 above the limit." The N. Y. Timee this morning says: "The Gold Room was dull through Saturday, and the sales ran down to 133J1334 per cent., subsequently returning to 1334133jl per cent. J he shipments of the day fell nearly one-hap short ol Friday's estimate, owing to the unex pected appearance of a large block of bills on London on Messrs. Baring Brothers, drawn to the extent of 350,000, f qual to $1,750,000 in gold, by Messrs. Duncan, Bbermm A Co, The objeot of the negotiation is not known. The bills were sold in sums ot 50,OO075,O00 each, and taken by the other bankers. The ship ments by the day's steamers were $006,744. making for the week $1,684,206. The Treasury office received for Gold Customs for the week $1,217,000, and paid out $217,000 for Gold In terest. The Treasury office olso paid out $8,600 -000 of the 3 per cett. Legal-tender Certificates of Deposit in exchange tor December Coupons, and from this operation and the receipts ot currency from the West ths bnnks pain $3,350, 000 in legat-trnder paper, while losing $1,400,000 in their gold deposit. The loans at Bank are down $2,150,000 from last Monday: the general deposit line is about $600,000 higher. The money market of the day closed easier at 6 per cent, to the stock brokers, with exceptions as low as 6 per cent, per annum. The discount brokers quote 78 per cent, on prime mercan tile pacer, with some select names, short date, below 7 per cent." ' The Chicago Republican, Dec. 20th, says: "Local monetary affairs presented no new featu i es to-day. The money market was close and stringent, and not eveu the best names could be placed in all ca'-es. The rates of interest at the bank and on the street were firm, and quoted at 10 per cent, per annum, and 22 per cent, per month. Eastern exchange was scarce and in demand, and rates were firm at par buying and 1-10 premium selling." Beturns from the principal hog markets In the West indicate that the number of hogs to be brought to market will be much larger this sea son than in any previous year. The following table shows the number packed iu the lour principal markets to the 14th instant, and also the number to the corresponding time last year: 18(17. 18D8. Mtil 101.0U0 ..ISIMHO .

The average weight Is not quite as great as last year, and It is believed the hogs are coming to market earlier than last year, but after making all allowances, there can be no doubt that there will be vastly more pork packed this than last year. This fact, which hat forced itself upon the notice of dealers recently has caused a sensible decline in prices within ihe las ; fortnight.
