CITY INTKMilUKMCE. HEW OF STEAM COLLIERS. g Trial Trip f the Httles;ake. The Pennsylvania, New York, and New Kngland Mtam NaviaMoa Company ha?e Buccesntully in Miirurated a nev movement In the coal-oarrytn trade which promises to lead to results of the first importance. The facilities Tor the transportation of coal to various points on the seaboard have for a ion time been notoriously Inadequate, and the eg. tabllshment of a new line of fast and reliable colliers In an ernt that will be appreciated by onr coal-shlp-ning mcrctianis, as well as by the Kastern manufac turers and others who have to depend upon the Pennsylvania mines for their supply of el. The Tproducttoa and consumption of coal In the United States during WUTni lJlrIlm Pennsylvania and Maryland alone, was over 10,000,. tons ana ih increasing at the rate of about fifteen ITr centrMnum (or.Tn round numbers, 8,500,000 ms) andwe must therefore look with favor to a vstefn which proposes to carry this tonnage direct to tiie manufacturer and consumer in a reliable nianner. or, at least, that portion of it which requires transportation by sea; and experience lias taught that railroads cannot successfully compete with water transportation in carrying coal and iron. We must, therefore, avail ourselves of the most desirable IniMieof transit on the great maritime highway, and call to our aid the power or steam. It has been the experience of many large manu facturers that they must necessarily contract for their coal early In the season to enable them to get tt forward, owing to the Inadequate transportation, frequently obligfng the manufacturer to buy at a time when the price for coal wan high; and again, when the price did decline, freights would be largely advanced, from no upparent reason save ttie oft-repeated one, scarcity of vessels, or else none of proper draft of water; and shippers of coal from the mines to Port Klchmond on the Delaware, as tvcll as all other shipping points, have been put to great In convenience on account of the uncertainty In pro curing vessels for the Hast, frequently obliging them to withhold tneir shipments, or suspend, tor a time, operation?. To avoid, in a measure, some of these contingencies, the manufacturers have been obliged to keep large stocks of fuel on hand, Involving loss of Interest on capital so locked up. The coal, where lurge quantities are used. Is pur chased early in the season, ut a fixed contract price, free on imurd at the point of shipment. Tims far the manufacturers are safe : but now comes the question of marine transportation. No one schooner, or live schooners, can or will : gree to transport the coal at a stated time, and at u fair fixed rate of freight; neither will any shipping house undertake the trans portation except ut uu enormous charge for freight, to cover the risks. Thus the buyer is left at their mercy, and must take his coal whenever he can get it, and at almost any rate of freight he may choose to charge, and accumulate a stock of coal.which, in many instances, nroves an Inconvenience; whereas under the new system he can be supplied at any time when it suits Ills convenience 10 nuj, ami cuu eoiuruui lur me delivery of his coal and iron at his mill (if on the line of 'railroad) at a regular ami uniform rate, as clung as navigation remains open. The iron screw steamers currying uu1 iiuuui en ions of coal can be bulit and equipped at a compara tively small cost, and these vessels can make four trips to one of the schooners, on an average. A fleet of thirty of these iron steamers, of from live hundred to one thousand tons capacity each, with iron barges as auxiliaries, will be immediately put upon the line, built in the most substantial and economical man ner the entire hold devoted to coal, and motive liower sufficiently stronir to tow the barges to the ound ports, with iieciuiimodutloiis on deck for only olllcers and crew, mid solely Intended for freighting iron and coal, without regard to return freights to 8tcam at an average speed of from ten to eleven know per hour, ami with a draft of water six and a half to nine and a hulf feet ; and It Is confidently ex pected that a cheap and unilorni system ol paying freights can be maintained, - remunerative and prolltuMe to all concerned. The economical manner in which they can be coaled is also an Important feature to be taken into consideration. The furnaces will b constructed to burn pea or small coal, which can be purchased at the shipping-ports at very small first cost. These vessels will carry their cargoes under locked hatches; and the coinpsny will be responsible for all the coal put on board, the dangers of the seas only excepted. Owing to the peculiarity of their construction, the screw steamers arc enabled to transport cargoes of fiOO to 600 tons Into harbors which can only admit schooners carrying 160 to Ko tons, and then not always to be obtained when wanted. The new line of steam colliers will transport coal cheaply, quickly, and elllciently, ami will enable consumers to cal culate always on having their coal delivered exactly on time under all circumstances. The Iron screw steamer Rattlesnake, which made a trial trip on Saturday, is u specimen vessel of the new line of colliers, ami her performances were in every way satisfactory to tine large company of gentle men who were invited by Messrs. V. D. Crane Co., the projectors, to inaugurate the new enterprise. The Rattlesnake was imilt by Messrs. Keauey, Son & Archbold, at Chester, and her const ruction was superintended by Captain Alexander Shaw, an ex perienced ottlcerj who will also give his attention to the other vessels of the line. Her dimensions are 160 feet In length, nearly 29 feet In breadth, 12 feet in depth from baseline; area, 277 square feet, midship section ; displacement, light, 816, and laden, lft tons ; her draft is only 11 feet; her engine with 84-inch cylinder; her stroke 28 Inches; one tubular boiler; urea of grate, 50 square feet; diameter of screw, 9 feet; pitch, 1 feet; at sea, and fully laden, she will make so revolutions per minute: pressure of steam, 35 pounds; average speed, fully laden, 9 knots per hour ; weight of Iron in hull, 163-89 tons; surface of hull. 6506 square feet; average weight per square foot of hull. f2!. pounds; weight of machinery, carpenter-work, and outfit, 161 tons. She has 7 iron kelsons, and water-bottom over them. Her cargo will be distributed in three compartments, viz., tons aft, 200 tons midships, and 176 tons forward. Her coal bunkers will carry no tons. She will be commanded by Captain V. li. Gallagher. Such an iron screw-steamer as the Rattlesnake, tarrying 600 tons of coal, can be built and equipped for a sum considerably under Joii.ooO. A schooner of 600 tons would coot 40,ouo. The screw-steamer, however, can make four trips to the wooden schooner's one. Say that a schooner carries a cargo of 250 tons of coal at tiW per tos, and averages twenty-two days for each trip, her clear earnings will be about 1 192, her performance at the rate of 1)4 trips per month, ami her average monthly earn ings will be (261. The iron screw collier will carry 600 tons per voyage, at $1-70 per ton, will make four voyages, have a clear gain of $2210 per month, aud carry In that time eight times the quantity or cool borne by the schooner. The construction of the vessel herself, her move ments through the water, the ease with which she can be manoeuvred, and other good qualities, ejceited ranch favorable comment from those who were best able to Judge on Saturday, and Mr. V. 1). Crane, who was In attendance, and to whom the various guests are indebted for many courteHles, found his highest expectations more than gratllled. The Reading Railroad Company, fully appreciating the advantages of this enterprise, have given it their hearty co-operation and support. Indeed, the Influ ence of the new line of steamers on the coal trade of Philadelphia can scarcely be estimated, and they can scarcely fall to realize the most suugulue expecta tions of the projectors. The Rattlesnake has been chartered by Lewis Audenreld A Co., who loaded the first coal schooner at Port Richmond, and site will sail next Wednesday with a full cargo of coal. Dirty Streets. The special policemen who have leeu detailed to inspect the streets throughout the city, this morning reported the following thorough fares as being in a filthy condition, and needing the broom and scraper immediately. : Essex street, Cadwalader street, Montgomery avenue, Marseilles Btreet, between Broad and Fifteenth ; a small street lielow Master, between Ninth and Tenth; Alder street, north of Master; American street, north and south of Columbia avenue; Prospect allev, between Ninth and Tenth, and Mervine street, above Thomp Hon. The policemen also cull attention to the con dition of a number of choked Inlets, and to the'Ulthv state of the gutters over which the iron coveriniM have been placed by passenger railway companies. Inciting to Riot Henry Cornell, David Barclay and Albert Gaw have been held by Alderman Carl penter for inciting to riot, on the wharf above Wal nut street, last evening. John G. Smith, the pro- Erietor of a tavern in that locullty, testified on the earing that this crowd were engaged in battering ilown his door, when he requested them to desist. They then threatened him, aud he was compelled to tall in a policemn, who took them into custody, Thb Bride's Fate, by Mrs. Emma D. E. N. Sonth worth, a sequel to "The Changed Brides," 1b In press and will be published on Saturday next, by T. It. Peterson A Brothers, Philadelphia. It will command a very large sale, as it is fully equal to "The Changed Brides' ''Fair Play," and "How He Won Her," which have proved to be three of the best novels ever published; A Wipk-bkatkr, John Fluherty was arrested at Mantuavllle for lieating his wife on Sunday morn ing. It is alleged that he whipped her so badly that tike la at present confined to her bed. The brute was taken before Alderman Maule, who beld hiin!for further hearing.

The nnrln Tuttle I tuft Float In the Delaware. on the 4th day of ,lnne, l67, more than two years Since, a tiny raft, named the Nonpareil, worked Its way out of New York harbor to the broad ocean be yond, and, hoisting sail, dilfled away towards Ea rope. The people of Southampton, England, were astonished on the 25th of the following month to see a novel crart nearlng their wharves upon the tide. It was the Nonpareil, and from that day she was famous. When Captain John Mlckcs, her builder, stepped upon her for the long voyage, many deemed him more than bold, and expected to hear or see nothing again of either him or his raft. The success of the enterprise, however, proved that he well knew the capacity of his tiny vessel, and demon strated that even the raging deep might be dared almost npon a plank. The Nonpareil now lies at Smith's Island, opposite Chesnnt street wharf. She is made of three air-tight cylinders 2a feet in length and 20 Inches diameter. The cylinder are made of gutta percha, encased In heavy duck covers, and connected by means of heavy duck flanges, which form a deck surface iy, leet wide. On the top ami across thtse cylinders arc placed a series of thwarts or planks, which keep the cylinders apart, and also afford seats for passengers. An air-valve is attached to each cylinder, and in elRht mlnhtes the rart can be put in readiness for service. The raft, it Is said, lias a buoTs nt capacity of ln,oH) pounds, and a deck surface of 204 square feet, she Is now rigged aud equipped as she was at the time of making her cele brated voyage the same water casks, beds, binnacle and tackling being on board. Captain Mlckcs, who is with the boat at Smith's Island, says that during his voyage across the ocean, the bcddiiig, which was elevated about two feet above the deck, was never wet. He also states that the raft cannot beswamped or capsized by surf or sea. AMAZOXIC. A Pnlr of llelligrreut Female Make the Fur Fly. At an early hour In the morning, a few days ago, on North Second street, In the vicinity of Callow hill, an amusing occurrence, In the shape of a melee among the hucksters of the said street, took place. The main participants two brawny females of the truck-vending vocation, both of rather Irascible temperament becoming Incensed at what each thought an Infringement or the other upon her espe cial rights, In order to solve the question n to who was to have the mastery, engaged lu a hand-to-hand encounter. For the space of some moments, the contest waxed warm, the two being well matched. At length, however, In desperation, one of the combatants, the smaller of the two, endeavored by a seientllle move ment to lay hold of the other by her long, unkempt hair. The attempt proved a failure, f sr that other, a native of "Ould Ireland," skilled from many pre vious engagements of the kind, succeeded well In keeping the perilled locks out of reach, and for a while had the best of her opponent. Presently the smaller, who had appeared almost vanquished, re gaining her self-possession, dashed boldly In, and the warfare again grew hot. Strawberries, cabbages, nnd potatoes, all were trampled In the dust ; baskets, barrels, and buckets rolled around promiscuously. ai lengin, just wnen our pugilists were preparing for the fourth round, one of the most corpulent of the Second street storekeepers proceeded to the scene of conflict and Interfered. With great exertions he succeeded in partially pro ducing a cessation of hostilities, when a brace of policemen made their appearance and ordered the curb vacated. TIIE T AK IFF. Suggestions for tin Jloriiflrntlon nnd Improve ment Dodred. Some time since, as has not been forgotten, the Congressional Committee of Ways and Means met iu this city for the purpose of Investigating the work ing of the various manufactories iu our midst, ami collecting from this source, as well as from others, such information as might prove valuable in the proposed revision of the tarill'. Before the sittings of the committee were closed, the "Industrial League" was requested to draft such a schedule of taritr rates, to be accompanied by documents as proof of its feasibility, as could bo approved by the dillcrcnt industries represented by the League, and to present the same to the committee for considera tion: Tho oPRoers of the League wish to respond to this Invl tatinn by submitting to the coinm.ttoe, upon their return to Philadelphia in August or September, a schedule worked up with nch care nnd thoroughness, so carefully adjusted to the wanis of both producer and consumer, ana wilhul so moderate and practical, as to challenge the favorablo attention of the committee and to uiuke pro bable t lie adopt ion of its provisions. All persons or corporations belonging to trftde associa tions represented in the Industrial Loaguo are, therefore, invited to forward their suggestions concerning tariff modifications to the secretaries of their respective bodies lor transmission to the League. It is desirable that tho taritf schedule prepared by the Industrial league in lsiH should ho adhered in as far as puf..i.i. Ki-4.tiua.iu arguments intended to elucidate any special point must be concise and clear in order to insure attention on the part of the committee. ,1ohf.ih Wharton, Chairman, Morton Mi-Michael, Hknhy O.

About 10 o'clock last night the carpenter shop of Stanton ft McGarvey, situ ated in the middle of a lumber yard, in the rear of Twenty-third und Market streets, was totally de stroyed by fire. The building contained a lurge amount of tools, valuable fixtures, and work in a finished and unfinished state, all of which was con sumed. The loss Is about f Mioo, on whicti there is an Insurance of 1400 in the Aitna Insurance Company. The lire was the work of an Incendiary, and was evidently by a crowd of loafers who infest thst lo cality. It seems that the firm has had considerable trouble with these fellows of late, and have been compelled to eject some of them from the place. This same crowd has had some ditllculty with the West Philadelphia Hose Company, against whom threats have been made. The rain storm of last night gave a splendid opportunity for these villains to carry out their design. They at first broke the fire-alarm box at the corner f Twenty-third and Market streets, In order to prevent an alarm being given over the wires, and to prevent too many llreiuen getting on the ground und interfering with their preconcerted plan of attacking the West Philadelphia Hose, which Is only a few blocks distant. The building was then touched oil, and the West Philadelphia Hose ami the Philadelphia Engine arrived on the ground at about the suine time. A portion of the hose was ran off the carriage, and the firemen proceeded to run a line from the Philadelphia steamer. During their absence the villains manned the rope of the car riage and ran her down along the wharves to San som street, where it was run overboard. The car riage was recovered at a late hour by the police of the Fifteenth ward, under Lieutenant Campbell. Tire MarsluU Blackburn is investigating the whole affair. Board op Surveys The regular stated meeting of the Board of City Surveyors was held this morn ing, at their rooms on South Fifth street. The following sewers were ordered to be con structed : Three feet sewer on Tudor street, be tween Tasker and Dicerkson ; 10-inch pipe on Juniper street, between Locust and Spruce; 8 feet sewer on Hunter street, between Tenth and Eleventh ; a feet sewer on Sansom street, between Seveuti and Eighth; 10-lnch pipe on Sixteenth street, between Ridge avenue aud Parrlsh street; 12-lnch pipe on Fifth street, between Noble and fiuttonwood ; 3 eet sewer on Thirty-ninth street, between Huverford and Bridge; 8 feet sewer on Lancaster avenue, from Miller street to 158 feet west; 10-inch pipe on Taylor street, between coral and Amber streets. A resolution to place Sheridan street upon tho city plan was ngreed to. Van Pelt und Crosky streets, in the Twenth-clghth ward, were also ordered placed upon the plan of the city. CoKNEK-LorNGEHH A gang of roughs are In the habit of loafing at Thirty-first ami Market streets on Sundays.

The Liario de la Marino prints a ferocton articlo on the recognition of bclllpcrent rights to tho Cubans. It suys it would be a matter of small importance to Spain if all the American Republics should recognize the Cubans as belligerents. ' One other Incident to relate, nnd I will have finished. A gentleman well Informed comes to tell me at this point that lust night lu the Junta the Oovcrnor-Ucncral, Espinnr, proposed that 100 of the marines from the Victoria, tho war 6tcnnicr,fshould go into the Cabanas to aid in guarding it. He s.ild that 100 of the volunteers there now were sick, and that these men who had so faithfully served the country ought to rest awhile. He proposed to retire a few others each day, until they could have time for a little repose. Rnmon tie Hcrrera, Colonel of tho 5th Hattnlion, opposed the request of tho Captain General, and was sustained by the members of the Junta. La Vox de Cuha Is the organ of the Ppnnlsli volunteers. Its editor bewails the situation a follows: "The situation Is grave, nay, Is of the gravest character. No situation heretofore offered pre sented such dangers. If, for a moment, the vo lunteers should be wanting In prudence, all will be lost. If they should continue of one accord, and be only moved by prudential considerations; should their passions give way to the feeling of snlvution of country, then all will be well. Without unity our ruin is certain." ENTHUSIASM of the patriots. The following Is an extract from a private letter l eceivcd by a gentlemen iu this city, and dnted Havana, Juno 12: "You have no Idea of the enthusiasm which Is noticed among the Cubans with refercuco to the opinion emitted by the North American press. The poor OorriowK are apparently united upon one point, and that is to get to gether all tho money they can and sail away afterward. Yes, mauy of thom are getting up nil their means, and it would seem incredible were I to tell you of tho great numbers of J'eniuftularrs that have left, and who are now preparing to leave for their country. The mobi lized troops In Sngua la Chica have raised the devil, as well whites as blacks. They turned against the Government; there .was a big row, but the disaffected, it is said, remained masters of the situation." CUBA LOST TO SPAIN. Espinar, the Governor-General, attempts by every means to make himself popular, and some times is met clothed in volunteer garb, without adjutant, promenading In the Purso de Taeou. It tickles me each time that I look upon his lordship, but, knowing his thoughts as I do, I force myself to contemplate calmly the farce. Espinnr lias himself often said aloud, and In dif ferent places, that Cuba was lost to Spain, and lias counselled all his friends who could to leave, inasmuch as one day, when least expected, the river of discontent would flow over Its banks aud the current would sweep all before It.. THE FIGHT AT RIO BLANCO. The rebel account of the fight at Rio Blanco lias been confirmed by several Spanish olllcers, who confess that their roar guard, consisting of 107 men nnd seven olllcers, was entirely cut off and captured, together with one cannon. The olllcers sent to Las Tunas for their clothing, which was sent to them. So it seems the insur gents do not shoot down their prisoners in cold blood, as the Spaniards frequently have done. THE PERIT EXPEDITION. On the 10th tilt., a day after the engagement near the Bay ot Aipe, a ueruian, giving ills name as John Jnger, presented himself or was taken by the Spanish gunboat Africio. He stated that he embarked on the steamer Perit, Captain Fletcher; that he sailed from New York on the 7th ult. with thirty-nine Americans, twenty-niue Germans, and one hundred Cubans. Her cargo onnsiKtcd rf Iwn thousand rifles. rd'ht;cil cau non, and other articles of war, with provisions. Tlie steamer arrived at Nipe on the 14th, and, after landing her cargo and passengers, sailed away. He was shot in the net of jumping over board to make his escape, as say the Spaniarde. He was a native of Guttenburg, Germany, twenty-six years of age, a citizen 6t the United States, and served In the Federal army during the late war. TnE rROsrECT. In looking at the situation here, it Is evident that the struggle will continue a long time. 1 do not see any advantages on either side which promise an early restoration of peace. Many of the Spanish oilicers are disheartened; they speak in very disparaging terms of their commanders, seeming to have no faith in them. As an otlicer remarked tome not long since. "It is nothing but marching and countermarching, conducting a convoy from one place to another, never stop ping to light ana trout the enemy. All we ac' eoniplish is to relieve Las Tunas, Puerto Principe, or some other city, from starving, Much hard work and no glory; a good deal of noise and nothing more. Pompous and exag gerated reports are given y our colonels and brigadiers to gratify their ambition aud advauce their career." MATRICIDE. A Man Charged with the Murder of bin Mother. From the Mmcatim (Iowa) Courier, June 15. We are Indebted to John D. Sheare, Sheriff of Cedar county, who passed through tho city, for a few of the details of a most horrible affair which occurred last week on Rock creek, Cedar county, three miles southwest ot Tipton. Mary Boyle, a decrepld old woman, eighty-five years of age, was cast off by her two sons, Daniel and Patrick Boyle, both married men, and compelled to seek support from the county. The County Superintendent, flndiug that her two sons were able to support her, compelled them to take her aud keep her, but soon ascertaining that they treated her Inhumanly, she was taken away and placed in the poor-house, to be kept at her sons1 expense. They refusing to pay for her keeping, suit was brought against them for the amount of the same. After this, It appears, Patrick Boyle, who lived three miles Bouthwest of Tipton, on Rock creek, while Daniel lives in Tipton, got his mother to come to his residence on yesterday two weeks ngo; and, after remaining there a week, it was given out that she had died. On last Tuesday, when the corpse was prepared for burial, a lady living near discovered a cut or bruise behind the left ear, and marks on the throat, and also dis covered staius of blood on tho floor of the house. On Tuesday the remains of the old lady were Interred, and on that day or tho next the lady who discovered the murks on the dead body and the blood on the floor sent her son to Tipton to inform the authorities, when a justice of the peace, acting as coroner, a jury, and Drs. May nurd and Kennedy repaired to the place where the body was interred and exhumed it, finding the marks on the head and throat as described, the face presenting the appearance of one whose death had been caused by strangulation. Patrick Boyle, when questioned lu relation to the cause of his mother's death, said that she bad fallen out of bed, which had caused her death. But as It was ascertained that she slept iu a trundle bed, and that a tlat-iron was found in the house with blood on It, aud that on the evening of her death she was seen by some of the neighbors at the door weeping, and when asked what caused her to weep, replied that she was very much abused, but that things would be different if her youngest son was alive, and Patrick then making his appearance and calling her a , ordered her in, telling her that she had only one more day to live, all fastened tho guilt upon him, aud he was arrested and taken to Tipton and committed to jail to await trial at the next term ot tho District Court for Cedar county.

Webb, it appears, has not been on good terms personally with the Brazilian officials, and the business of bis (our) Government has suffered to some extent In consequence. As his successor has already been appointed, no notice will be taken of his conduct by our Government. The Brazilian Minister here asserts that what ever misunderstanding has arisen between our Government and that of Brazil is entirely owing to the conduct of Miuister WebB, and will disappear with him.

A special despatch to the Republican, from Hayes City, Kansas, dated June 19, says Colonel Sillwood's surveying part', who are surveying the route of the Kan sas Pacific Railroad, from Sheridan to Denver, were attacked this morning beyond Sheridan, by a band of Chcyennes. The surveyors were well armed, and after a desperate fight, suc ceeded In killing four Indians, wounding seve ral, and putting the balance to. flight. Two brothers, named Schuyler, in Sillwood's party, were wounded, one of them severely. The Indians report that Spotted Tail, with two hundred lodges, has left the reservation and is coming down, with what intention is not known.
