Hiv Francis Head's Views on the Alabama Claims Is America Right in Demanding k Reparation ? limit v. Sumner. Hit Francis Head, formerly Governor-General of Canada, In a t wo-column letter to the London TimtH of the. lst ultimo calls to iniiul the course pursued by tho Americans In the Canadian relicllioii of 1H!17. The communications exchanged between Hlr Francis and Mr. Marcy, then Governor of the Ntate of New VOrk, arc Klvcn In full. On the '2'2d he published another communication, with additional letters from Mr. Marey. A third communication, which con cludes the ecrtes, was subsequently published. The concluding portion of the lirst letter reads as follows: The facts and figures for the comparison are briefly as follows: On the 4th of December, 1N37, when Mr. MeKenzle, at the head of !S00 followers, armed, many with sticks, many with pikes, and the rent with ride's, sud denly appeared before Toronto, the population of Upper Canada was 4B0,0tl0 anil that of the lloine Dis trict (10,000, that of Toronto 10,000. On the 7th. with (rreat dillleuity, he escaped In dis guise to the United states. On the following day I not only Issued a proclamation to stop the volunteers who from all directions were flocking towards To ronto, but, besides the whole of the Queen's troops, who previous to the outbreak had been despatched, I placed tho militia of seven counties at the disposal of Sir J. Cnlhorne in the lower province; and, lastly, so completely was the outbreak at an end than not requiring tho assistance of military or eveu civil law, 1 pardoned on the day of their capture every rebel prisoner brought before me, and during my admin istration did not allow a single rebel to be executed, for the reason, as I expressed it, "that, not requiring the death of a fellow creature, I felt the Angel of , Mercy would be of greater service to me than the Hemon of Kevengo, and it was so." Now, It was under these circumstances, and at a moment when there was not in I ipper Canada at rebel In arms, that the Governor of the State of New York, on the Sftth of December, as advised by his Attorney-General, resolved (by abrogating that solemn treaty between Great Britain and the United States, under which, only four months before, on the demand of the authorities of hiB own State of New York, I had loyally delivered up to him an American cltizeu, charged on due evidence of having robbed the Bank of Rochester, in the said State, to proclaim on behalf of the United States "neutral ity" between two so-called "belligerent" forces. The one, the triumphant, merciful power and peaceful authority of Great Britain in Upper Canada; the other, a gang of desperadoes (commanded, as will be shown, by an American "general'"), every one of whom had followed him and the fugitive murderer, Mr. McKcnzie, not from Canada, but from the ter ritory of tho United States to a little uninhabited British island in the narrow river Niagara. Assem bled there, and waging war under no national tlag, this isolated gang, by the law of nations, were pirates the enemies of mankind In general, and especially of the United States, whose sensitive honor they had insulted by having, as will be proved to you, forcibly captured twenty-two pieces of their Government artillery, as well as many thousands their muskets. Instead, however, of avenging they condoned this insult, and, allowing their cannon to tire for a fort night on the Canadian people (including myself), three of whom they killed, the Governor of tho great and highly civilized State of New York, against my earnest remonstrance, insisted and persisted in as suming the misnomer of "neutral," and In declaring me and the robber of his arsenals, Mr. MoKenaie, to be "belligerents," allowing, however, in breach of neutrality, the latter, whenever he thought proper, not only to land and harangue the citizens or the United States, but daily to receive from them for his gang. Increased by them to upwards of 1000, food, powder, shot, and ball cartridges, the three latter taken from the Government arsenals. Now, 1 beg leave to ask the people of tho United States to con sider and declare whether such conduct accents with the doctrine expounded in Mr. Sumner's speech to their Senate. The course of policy above pursued by the consti tuted authorities of the United Slates was either right or wrong. Supposiug, lor a moment, that it wts wrong, it does not follow, because England overlooked it. at the time and has long ago forgotten it, that she has now no dormant claims for apology and compensa tion. The American Government and people, however, maintain that it was right. If so, as itcaunot be right, only when they pursue it, and wrong when pursued by any other nation, 1 most respectfully submit to their good sense and good feeling that comparing to tiny dimensions of strength, dura tion, and cost of the outbreak of t he rebel McKcnzie with the gigantic dimensions of the strength, dura tion and cost of the outbreak of the Rebel Jefferson Davis, it is logically, morally, and politically impos sible for them to refuse now to accept from the British people, as their reasonable apology for (ueen Victoria having in May, I8i 'as Mr. Sumner com plains, "accorded belligerent rights" to the latter, at that periotlfa successful "rebel, "the Identical words of explanation given to her representative in Upper Canada in December, 1HU7, by the authorities of tho United States, for having accorded belligerent rights, protection, cannon, muskets, ammunition, and food to the former defeated fugitive and rebel and robber iij their own Government arsenals. England's Urm, friendly answer, therefore, to what Mr. Sumner has deemed it advisable to term "tins great question, the musslve grievance, the original, far-reaching, and destructive wrong," in his own words, authorized to be published by his own Senate, is, I submit, as follows: "He (Jefferson Davis) was at the head of a military force a foree hostile to the Government and seeking its sut vereion&nd overthrow by violence. 1 was a civil war; whether just or unjust in not. materiul for the present purpose to inquire ; it is enough t hat it was a state of open, public, and notorious war on one Bide to over throw and on the other to preserve the (United States) Government." Between the belligerents or wagers of this "open, public, and notorious war" no foreign country had any right to Interfere, and in acknowledgment thereof England alone, of all the nations of Europe, pledged herself by proclamation to remain neutral. 1 have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant, K B. Head, Late Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada. Mr. Foreler Jtrview Neniiior Sumner's A 1 li bitum til'ITll. Mr. Forster, member of Parliament for Bradford, appeared before his constituents ou the 20th ult., at a public meeting, and in the course of his speech delivered ou the occasion, Uealluded to the position of Mr. Sumner on the Alabama claims. Tho follow ing is a synopsis of Mr. Forster' address: The right honorable gentleman next alluded to the American question, especially referring to Sumner a speech. England had felt a warm Interest in the cause of the North of America in the victory of freedom over slavery. Sumner had complained that England hail acted in a hostile maimer with respect to the proclamation of neutrality. Sumner appeared to consider that the South ought to have been treated as pirates. But he (Mr. t'oister) found, from Ins study of international law, that where there was a revolution between suites in the same conn- try, they were belligerents, and that U was the duly of a neutral government to treat them as such. Then again, Mr. Sumner hail remarked that, al though there was war bv land then in America, there was no war at sea; but remember the proclamations the Northern States made, aud let thena also con sider that the North themselves, by the block ade of ports in the South, recognized tho existence of war with the South. The Southern Confederacy ran their vessels out of port, and time after time disturbed the blockade tho North had instituted. The blockade in itself was au act of war. Hunmer also appeared to contend that that blockade was not a real blockade, but Mr. Forster argued that the American Government were playing upon words, lor sailing to Southern ports waa the act. of a belligerent power. Although there were Individuals who had committed acts otrensive to the North, they ought to look at what the Govern ment of the country had done. Kegarding the press, Mr. Korster said ."Well, there were newspapers, and very able newspapers your own newspaper, the newspaper of Leeds; many newspapers in London, who took the side of ' the North. And I will say this there is a great newspaper in England, the Time, aud there is a great newspaper iu America, the New York lltrald. There was a ' time in which the Tim seemed as if it would fan animosity between Rug land und the North. There was a time, and there is a time, in which the New York Herald seem to do the same. But we have this advantage, at any rate, that our great paper has seen the ereur of it ways, and their great paper has not." With respect to the Alabama business, it ought to bo remembered that Karl Knssell had strained the law, and kept the armed rams from going from Liver pool. Sumner had also said that when Ameri cans came to England they were sure to be annoyed by hearing observations un favorable to the North; but it was absurd for them to take the club rooms of the West End and Helgravla as their criterion In this respect. If onr American friends had gone into the workshops cf England they would have heard quite a different story for the sympathies of the English people were fully in favor of the abolition of savery. In his opinion there could be no war between America and England, for thero could be no real antagonistic feel ing between people mutually speaking the English language and of kindred tastes and habits. Warlike Preparations'. According to the H-'i'iwf of St Petersburg, General Todtleben has prepared a plan for converting Kieff Into a strong fortress, capable of holding from 50,000 to 6n,ono men. This plan has lieen approved by the Government, and steps are now being taken for car rying It out- The General states in his report that, the formications of that town are at present so weak that a hostile corps from Oallcln or the Black Hva could penetrate without dillleuity Into the heart of the empire before a sutllclent army could lie placed so as prevent Its further progress, lie therefore con siders It absolutely necessary to make so important a strategical point as Kicif a strong garrison lortress. FRANCE. I'rcncli View of the Importance of .Minister W itMlihiirnc'a Untie. From La Liberie, May 81. We have already announced the arrival of Mr. Washburne, who comes to assume the duties of United States Minister In place of General Dlx. In view of the ever-Increasing Importance of the poli tical Influence of the United States in Europe; in view also of the hostility of the United States Senate to England, and of the complications that might, arise should the now existing dittl eulty culminate In a serious conflict, a bio graphical sketch of Mr. Washburne is of posi tive Interest, Mr. Washburne is one of the most popular men In his country; the friendship binding him to General Grant is of the most inti mate character; hence the mission he has come to f 11 llll In Paris has an especial significance. Since the Union war, American policy seems to have had for Ms object the augmenting of the share of In fluence of the Republic, that had hitherto stood aloof from the contests or Europe. The mission of Admiral Farragut, the negotiations commenced with Turkey and Italy for the establishment of an American naval station in the Mediterranean, the persistency of the American Senate in exacting from England amends en regie for the support given the pro-slavery party, would suttlce to vouch for this tendency, even were not evidence of all kinds at hand to attest its exist ence. General Grant, It Is said, Is disposed to em phasize it still more strongly by making of the pro gramme we refer to the objective point of his policy. If this be true, the new President needs to represent his Government, vin-a-vU the European powers, men upon whom he can place as perfect reliance as upon himself. Mr. Washburne is such a man; he can at least be regarded as one of those persons who pos sess the fullest confidence of the Executive, and are the best informed as to his secret plans. AVhnt France Tlilnltw of England and tho United NliUen. The Conxtitvtionncl, of Paris, of the 21st ult., re ferring to Senator Sumner's speech, comments as follows: The opinions In Eugland must be much irritated against the United States for the speech, of Senator Sumner, with his expressions of violence and menace, to have drawn the Time from Its habitual calm and measured attitude. What appears mostly to exasperate the city paper, is the demand, supposed to emanate from the Federal Government, to submit the difference to a foreign arbitration. The Time will not hear or It, and to those Americans who complain of the con duct of England during tho war of secession it re vives the language ami attitude observed by their lournais and statesmen during tne war in tne Crimea and India. Both evidently have their blood up, and all the prudence of the two Governments will be necessary in order to prevent matters irom going further. GHASTLY REVELATIONS. .More Relies of the Spanish Iniiiilwirion Un f arlhcd I.nlewt Parliculurn of the Disco very. The London Star has the following from Madrid : A somewhat ghastly incident lias caused consider able excitement here within the last few weeks. Within a few hundred yards of the new Plaza do Dos Mayo, inaugurated ou the at or tins mouth, there is a locality called the Cruz del Ojiemadero. It Is a Held some three hundred metres square, at the top of the Calle Aricha do San Bernardo, near the hospi tal built by the ex-Queen. Through it a new road was lately opened, and as the ground was ele vated, a cutting of considerable depth had to be dug. The workmen laid bare several peculiar-looking horizontal strata, of irregular formation. One was one hundred and llfty feet in length, another fifty, another ten. The thickness varied from eight to eighty centimetres. In color the soil was black, the lower strata being much niacker man tne superior ones, on examination lumps or cnarred wood were found, interspersed with ashes, evidently the remains of some huge fire. Curiosity was soon excited, and further Investigation demonstrated that in por tions of these ugly looking strata the finger came upon small pieces of adipose matter, which yielded like butter to the touch, iron rings were gruuoeu up; human bones, a cranium, a long tuft of hair, having belonged to some lemaie. au these were more or less charred. Some of the iron was partially fused, and the texture of bone Intermingled with sand was plainly discernible, a gag, too, turned up. The question, what were these lugubrious Tecords? was answered at once. This field of the Cruz del ouemadero was the place where the Inquisition dis posed of some of its victims. Here were the ghastly proofs of the horrors of which this place had been the scene, suddenly brought to light after the lapse of two centuries. On the 12th of May, 10!'.), eighty three heretics, including twenty Hebrews, of whom live were womeu, were immolated ou this very spot. The pile or wood was eignty feet in length by seven feet In height. A great con course witnessed the auto da fr, and the horrible ceremonial completed, the peopiei buried tne re mains of their victims under car-loads of earth. These Irregular geological strata are naught else but the silent testimony to the atrocities perpetrated ou this spot in the name of religion and "Catholic Unity. " out of one your special correspondent hooked out with his finger one entire bone of a human vertebral column, a portion 01 a tibia, a frag ment of a shoulder-blade with a hole through It, aud a bit of a rib, all bearing the marks of tire. Up ward of two cart-loads of remains of this sort have been carried away and decently burled. But these horrible strata! There they remain to tell their own tale aud instruct the present generation. Onthelilth a public meeting was con vened, to bo held at the tniemadero, by the Republi can youth of Madrid, to protest against priestly in tolerance and to advocate freedom of conscience. That this discovery should have been made at a mo ment when the Spanish clergy are striving their utmost to attlrm the "unity of the Unman Catholic Church," and are preaching in the churches of the metropolis against heresy, is a striking coincidence. The Oueniadero is so frequented by people in search of relics, and the explorations of these strata have been so extensive, that tho authorities have barred the frontage oil", and prohibited access. It Is their iutention to cut a square block, and there erect a monument. It is estimated by Lloriente, the great historian of the Inquisition, that this atrocious tri bunal has deprived Spain of twelve millions of souls, Including the Jews and Moors expelled from the cuuntry.Thii't.v-one thousand and nlnety-t woperished by (Ire; 17,6.')! were 11 rst butchered and then burned; 821,9n' died of torture. Total, 270,7.ttl. GOLD IN SCOTLAND. An English paper says: Lord Saltoun's factor having by some means con ceived that the rocks about Fraserburgh might con tain gold, the services of an ol I Califorulau digger were secured, and a day or two ago a number of stones broken off quartz veins, and containing what appeared to auriferous substance, were picked up In the neighborhood of Ktnnaird's Head Lighthouse, and forwarded to an analyst in London lor Inspec tion. Since then largo numbers of persons have visited the spot, several of whom have also chanced upon blocks of quarts which contained particles of cold. In one case a grain weight of pure gold was taken from a tiny splinter, and such is the etiKemess manifested by not a few to allow the chance to slip past them unimproved, that largo blocks of stone of all descriptions are taken home at all hours of the day for leisurely inspection. No quantity of any consequence has as yet been "Hoo vered but that the quartz veins to be seen In the face of a large mass of overlying rock really contain gold can hardly be questioned. Whether It exists to an extent which would recompense the toil and ex pense of digging it from Biich an inaccessible bed i a point whlchltmay take time to decide.

Minister Motley's Welcome in Eng land His Response to tho Ad dresses of Welcome What the English Tapers Have to Say. Our New Minister to Franee A Grand Testimonial to Ex-Minister Dix His Speech. FROM ENGLAND. jMr. Mollcy'x Mixtion Comment of the I n liHb 1'reiNt Full Ivxlrucln. By Atlantic Cable. London, June 1. Mr. Motley, it is under stood to-day, addressed a letter to Lord Claren don, informing him of Lis arrival iu London, and officially requesting the appointment of a day for tbe presentation of Lis credentials. As the Prince of Wales holds a levee to-day, to morrow has been named as tho more fitting time for the ministerial introduction. Mr. Moran, tho United States Chargo d'Affaircs, attended the levee and was presented. The burden of the newspaper articles pub lished here to-day on tho subject of Mr. Motley's arrival is generally to the effect that the writers find in his speech in Liverpool an indication of the spirit of the instructions given to him by President Grant. The London Daily JVeto hays that it is glad to b able to conclude from the speech of Mr. Motley that he has not come without specific in structions, and that it is satisfactory to find that on the question of the relations between tho United States and England President Grant has a policy of conciliation and peace. One clear gain likely to result from Mr. Motley's presence in London, with defi nite instructions from his Government, will be the removal of a diflieult question from the region of unolllcial debate and rhetorical exaggeration into that of a business statement and diplomatic negotiation. The English peo ple are content to leave our side of the matter in the hands of Lord Clarendon, and tho country will accept any plan of settlement which he and Mr. Motley may arrange, and should be glad to be equally sure of its acceptance by the Seuato of the United StatCB. The London Star publishes a highly compli mentary article, in which it says that the cha racter of Mr. Motley is in itself a sufficient indi cation that the United StatC9 of America will treat the pending subject honorably, while the presence of Mr. Bright iu tho English Cabinet, with Mr. Gladstone at the head of tho Ministry, constitute an equally sufficient guarantee that England loves peace, and that a determination to do justice animates the Ministry. The Telegraph thinks that Mr. Motley will for the present devote himself to tho discharge of the ordinary duties of his otlice, and that in that capacity ho may consolidate that cordial alliance which ought to exist between tho two countries. It will be a reproach to English politicians and journals if, for the sak of pandering to popu lar prejudice, they throw difficulties in tho way of the mission of good-will and peace which Mr. Motley declares he comes to carry out eveu to the end. The London Times understands that no new demand has been addressed to England. Mr. Motley enters upon his duties without any prospect of controversy, but at the earne time says that the English Government should exa mine any new proposals, and see if they promise a just and equitable solution. If tho neutrality proclamation is made the subject of gvievanco we are bound to listen to the arguments ad duced, though it is improbable that any good purpose would be served by raising such dis cussion. The Pall Hall Gazette, as usual, has a snob bish article on the subject, boasting that America has backed down before British pluck, and that under these circumstances the arrival of the new Minister is of small Importance, and the best result they anticipated from Mr. Motley's mis sion is that his duties will afford him sufficient leisure to prosecute his historical studies. Notwithstanding the tone of the London press, I have good authority for saying that not one of the newspapers has received tho slightest hint or indication of Mr. Motley's instructions, which, I am assured, will iu tho end be found thoroughly dignified and iu a firm American tone.

(Jrnnd Farewell Itiiniiuet I.hhI Nifcbl 10 ex Minister ltx Eloquent Hpeecli a I' ibe llr lirliiw Diplomat. By Atlantic Co 60. Pakib, Juno 1. A splendid farewell American banquet was given to General Dix at the Grand Hotel to-night. Between three aud lour hun dred persons were present. I did jot notice any foreigners in tho room. Messrs. Washburne, the General's successor; Burlingamo and Bullock, of Massachusetts, wore the only American guests. Mr. Cowdiu, of New York, presided. General Dix, In response to tho toast of his health, delivered an eloquent speech, thankin the assembly for the compliments paid him. He reviewed the past progress and referred to the future prospects of" their common connkry, Alluding to tho completion of the Pacific Rail road, he said it realized tho prophetic dream and great thought of Columbus, by opening a western passage from Europe to tho In dies, lie iail . that in the present cen tury little more was needed to complete the work. It engaged no xtcrnal attraction to induce a prcssuro outward or from within so as to divert tho public mind from the work. There never was an instance in the history of humanity when society possessed so many elements calculated to devote the attention of a great people towards internal development, and turn their thoughts from the fatal policy of forcible aggrandizement, which instinct, combined with the spirit of international discord, carries with it, as well as all tho elements of domestic dis aster and humiliation. If tho jurisdiction of tho United States of America be eularged, it will bo by amicablo arrangements with other States. America gained 00111101 at any time by violence or Injustice, and sho desires to gam nothing in tho future by unworthy schemes of territorial aggrandizement, by which uations, sooner or later, are sure to work out their own downfall. If future accessions of territory come, it will Ue, as in tho past, from cause prepared byond tho circle of our in fluences, and by agencies higher than our own. . Alter alluding to the pro per ambition of tho American people, the General said: Wo may trust in providence for a continuance of our national prosperity, if iu our intercourse with foreign States wo con form to those rules of international right and obli gation which have received the sanction of tlie civilized world; demanding only that the same maxims of reciprocal justice shall bo sacredly respected by others; that tho high seas shall be recognized as a common pathway, and that the nations shall bo freo from all pre tensions of superiority or arbitrary control. In relation to France,' ho said that there existed between America and France, from the earliest period, a strong bond of iitlluity which shonld never bo broken. Franco cama to our aid at a trying period, in tho infancy of tho country, and during the very throes of national gestatiou. Sho rendered essential service to Washington by the swords of her soldiers Lafayette, Rochambeau, and Count do Grnsse while D'Estringe, Trux ton, and Paul Jones, at sea unsheathed their swords in tlie cause of ludependenco. Owing to this, misunderstandings, betweeu tho two coun tries for nearly a century have been few, unim portant, aud brief in duration, leaving no rank ling feeling or resontmeuts behind. After pitying an eloquent tribute to tho genius of Napoleon aud the worth aud virtue of the Empress, General Dix referred to the qualifica tions of his successor, Mr. Washburne. Speeches were subsequently mudo by Mr. Burliugme, Mr. Washburne, Mr. Bullock, and others. The entertainment was a great success. FROM WASHINGTON. Btupateh to the Aiaoniateil rreaa. Naval Order.

Jacob Frank was acquitted of a charge of entering a house with intent to steal. It appeared that while intoxicated he went to an old gentleman's house at Nicctown, and declined to take a broad hint to leave; but no action of his indicated a lefonious intent, indeedjiis drnnken condition rather repelled the pre sumption of a purpose to do wrong.

Never mind the Interest, only give me money."' This was a memorable epoch for banks, bill brokers, aud Shy locks generally, and whoever were the fools, the lenders were certainly the wise men. The strin gency which had reigned during the pre vious month was nearly as great a windfall as the Hebellion was to some of our rail roads lending to Washington. Mut this was too good to last, aud now all is changed. A complete metamorphosis, a sort of palingenesis has literally turned tlie money market Inside out. The cry is all among tho money-changers, "Who wants money? Never mind the iuterest, give us what you like, but only take our money." The change would be com plete but for one thing. The cry falls on still air, and there Is no echo, and thus the market Is glutted with currency which nobody seems to want, and even live per cent, loans are sent "a-begging and no takers." This is an extreme of ease which rellects the un satisfactory condition of all branches of Industry. The rates for loans and discounts are nominal and quotations are unreliable. Government loans were firm but quiet. Gold opened at 130)4, and wan quoted at 189 at noon. The Stock market was very active this morning, and the "bull" element was decidedly In the ascen dancy.

"The money market was more active, and seven per cent, was paid in all cases on stocks, anil iu nmrly every Instance on Government collaterals. I he occasion of this disturbance was primarily tho fact that, as the day was the first of the month, a great many loans were changed owing to the expira tion of contracts and the making of new agreements. This activity was taken advantage- of by the 'bears,' ho aggravated matters as much as possible, If they did not actually tic up funds, home bank accounts were not made up until after three o'clock. Commercial paper shows a slight concession in rates, which, for tlie bulk of transactions, range from seven to eight and a half per cent., in some in stances, particularly where the maker is not dis posed to 'go shopping' for a market, but wishes money In haste, or where the amount is larger than the usual run of notes, good paper has been sold at as high as nine per cent, discount. The private market and the country banks are subjected to more competition from the city banks, which, from tho redundancy of national currency received on deposit by them, as well as on account of the tendeucy to lower interest, so usual in summer, aro Inclined to enlarge their accommodation. "Governments opened with great buoyancy, In re sponse to a rise to 81 for bonds In London, and prlcos at the noon board touched their highest stneo the sharp decline In gold. In the afternoon there waa considerable realization, while somu uneasiness was occasioned by an erroneous cable quotation giving the London price as 70 ',' at 1 o'clock. Later in tho day this was discovered to be an error for 80?,'. The activity In money, however, prevented a reaction, and the market closed dull. t- "A telegram from London to the Journal de ft. retertbourg, under date of May 14, confirms the offer of five millions sterling in gold made by the Bank of France to the Bank of England, which was, how ever, refused by the latter. "Mr. Van Dyc.k, the Assistant Treasurer In this city, did not ret ire from the duties of his office to day, Secretary Boutwell having requested that he would continue In the position until tho 15th Inst. This would indicate that Mr. Boutwell has not as yet selected a successor for the position, from whieii Mr. Van Dyck formally resigned some time ago. "The advance In gold as well as the higher quota tions for live-twenties in London created a fuller supply of commercial and bond bills, under which bankers' sterling bills reached an eighth to a quarter per cent While the sight quotation was nominally 110'V at the close, a good deal had been done at 110. Cable transfers were made at 110!. "Gold was strong under the renewal of tho bull speculation and rose over one per cent The success of the movement might have been more decided had the foreign quotation for Five-twenties not deterred outside buyers. "Cash gold was In abundant supply again and as high as 1-32 and 8 per cent were paid for carrying. The lowest rate was 5 pei cent and tho average 6 to 7. The disbursements of coin Interest to-day were (83,111. The llolsatla, from Europe, brought (80,000, and the Allemanuta, for Europe, took out (253,000 in specie." liilalellila. Trade Report.
